  1. Day 28

    So I'm 4 weeks in and wish I could stay on this cycle for a year!!! Just loving everything about it, still no sides except for aggression which my wife has commented on so I need to chill out! I'm really going to be upset at the end but let me tell you I'm having a full body transformation!! I do HIT cardio after my lifting days but 1 or 2 days a week I like to do a cardio only session when I can't get to the gym since I have a treadmill at home. Being a father or 2 little guys makes the gym hard to get to on the weekends..



    Cardio Only:

    Speed walk: 60 mins, 5.0 incline, speed 4.2, 800 calories


  2. Day 29

    Decent workout did not feel my best off day I guess? This morning feeeling like I'm fighting off a cold but it won't stop me! The strange thing is that Chest and Bi's have always been my strong points, but has of lately not so? I think it's because I've been focused on getting my other lifts ( legs & back) up to where the rest of my body is? I quess at my #'s I shouldn't be complaining, just its the only muscles throughout this cycle I haven't really hit PR's. Maybe I'm maxed out?

    Decline bench sit-ups: 3 sets till fail

    Seated upright Precor press: 175x16, 175x16 185x14 (can you feel the burn LOL)

    Lift the fŁcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    I love HIIT short and to the point. I find that I burn more calories doing 15 mins of HIIT verses doing 30 mins on the elliptical..

  8. HITT is the only way to do cardi. LISS is just too damn boring and time consuming.

    Ever try it on a bike? Good change of pace. I've also tried it on a stairmaster but that machine kills my knees..

  13. Been doing cardio all of week... I do prefer HIIT, but I'm wonder if stairmaster of 30-44 minutes would trump 20 minutes HIIT elliptical? Think the answer would be the HIIT.

    i find it difficult to make gains in my chest. everything else has been moving smoothly. over the summer i hit 385 for reps, in the past month i think my best has been 335. i know the feeling when you say you think your maxed out. just gotta keep pushing. i will say though, i have been happy with my progress elsewhere. i was all chest and front delts for a while. now i have a little bit of a tricep bicep and back to match.
    I'm just a dude chasing a dream

  15. HITT on a stairmaster is insane. I've fallen off that f*cker many times! Lol

  16. As far as maxed out on bench, maybe switch it up a bit and see if it helps. Things like close grip, board presses, bands+chains, weighted dips, incline close grip, etc. as your main movement. Also, try reducing volume and the number of excersises for a few weeks and see if it helps. Sometimes chest just gets overtrained and burned out so that may help. Its a stubborn muscle but maybe switching it up will help out

  17. Day 30

    OFF Felt like crap all day def. fighting off a cold. Went to bed at 9:30 and slept like a baby, I feel much better so back to the gym tonight!

    The funny part to me is that once I switched up my chest exercises thats when the PR's stopped!! My body is a creature of habit it dose not respond well to change I know most see results for mixing it up but I'm the opposite?? I'll never figure it out LOL

    Same here! Won't be doing that again live and learn right!!

  21. Question for you guys, I've been getting some bad lethargy in the afternoon and heard that ALCAR is good for it so I bought some. Any of you guy's try it and if so how much to dose per day??

    Yeah that is pretty much the exact opposite of me haha. Maybe just keep the same excersises and adjust the volume?

  23. ALCAR is awesome Caz. I take 2g a day split into 2 (1g doses). Best taken away from food too.

    So 4 a day I have 500 mg pills, do you need to cycle on/off or can it be taken daily like a multi vitamin?

  25. Yessir...2 caps in morning/2 caps in afternoon without food.
