    Smolov Jr Second Day
    7 sets of 5 at 75%

    My insomnia was acting up, I didnt go to sleep til 7 am last night and I didn't wake up til like 4 pm. Worst time to go to the gym here so I waited til 630 ish. Have to say my stomach was pretty darn empty when I took my scoop of ignite. Took 2 scoops Lemon RecoverPro for obvious reasons.

    some rotator cuff warm ups and jumped right to it
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5
    225x5

    again, impressed by how effective the rep range was. After I racked my last press I felt drained yet throughout the workout I was in complete control of form.
    also equally impressed by how the energy from ignite just keeps on going til peak and levels out. Doesnt leave you high and dry with a crash which is something I appreciate a ton.

    Went to incline flyes mixed with incline db press
    40's x20 (just flyes)
    40's x15 flyes + 40's x7 press with rotation
    35's x15 flyes + 35's x8 press with rotation

    Seated Cable Chest Flyes
    70 x15
    70 x15
    70 x14

    Hammer Strength Incline Press
    1 pps x12
    2 pps x12
    70 lbs pps x 10 (failed)

    RecoverPro kept me satiated til it was time to leave. Then my stomach was growling like a lawnmower.
    Got home and took 4 caps of TTA-500 (I am only eating 1 big meal today)

    got 2 more of those sandwiches (flat bread, peanut butter and dried cranberry)
    2 chicken breasts
    1.5 cups broccoli
    2.5 cups mashed potatos
    gravy (I dont wanna know how much lol)
    gonna eat another portion, dont really know what but I need more calories
    Decided on two more sandwiches

    protein shake, think I am gonna go with the No Whey tonight.

    pic is on its way

    Back day. Kinda wanted to do all rows, in case you can't tell later on.

    2 scoops recoverpro right after class, waited 45 minutes then it was gym time!

    Lowered all weights just because my quality of workouts has gone down. Really wanted to focus.
    1 scoop ignite for pw.

    Reverse Grip Pulldowns SS w/ Wide Grip Pulldowns
    110 lbs x10 + 110 lbs x10
    (Still not a deep enough contraction)
    90 lbs x10 + 90 lbs x10
    90 lbs x10 + 90 lbs x10 (so pumped)
    90 lbs x8 + 90 lbs x6

    Bent Over BB Rows
    135 lbs x14
    135 lbs x12
    Switched to suicide grip
    135 lbs x12
    135 lbs x12

    Isolateral Rows
    1 pps x16 (one arm at a time)
    1 pps + 25 x 12
    1 pps x20
    1 pps x16 (both arms)
    1 pps x16 (1 arm 4 reps then hold contraction while doing other arm 4 reps.)

    DB 1 Arm Rows (with an incline bench) squared up stance, not staggered. Keeps your spine in line and I feel a stronger contraction personally.
    35 lb x12
    35 lb x12
    35 lb x12
    35 lb x12

    Low Cable Rows (lean back when contracting to hit lower lats)
    110 lbs x12
    110 lbs x14
    110 lbs x12
    110 lbs x12

    Hammer Strength High Row (nice arch to hit lower lats)
    1 pps x12
    1 pps + 25 x12
    1 pps + 25 x12
    1 pps x12

    4 caps TTA-500 and a huge plate of spaghetti, like literally I've never loaded a plate so high. Sipping more RecoverPro later as well.

    Ignite wasn't as potent (obviously) but shoulders is the only day I don't mind lifting with something in my gut. Other than that it just bugs me and I don't feel like I get to that level of intensity that I can while being fasted. Before IF I would lift at 8 am with a handful of sugar free gummy bears and half a scoop of whatever I had, it's just been a personal preference of mine for a long, long time

    Thursday

    1 scoop Ignite 2, fasted and right before I stepped off my truck.

    Warm up with bar and then 135.

    10 sets of 3 at 85%

    250x3 o 10

    Around set 7 I started getting tired and started lifting like a power lifter. Felt good, no spotter no problem.

    First week is done.

    Next week it's the whole thing over again just add 5 kilos to everything.


    LEGS

    Squats
    135 x10
    185 x10
    235 x8
    185 x10

    Front squats
    135 x8

    Leg Press
    3 pps feet all the way up push with heels.
    Got sets of 12, 12 and 14.

    Achilles felt weird and overall a very stressful workout. Felt like puking the whole drive home.

    barbell curls
    30 lb preloaded 2 sets of burnoff (25 and 20)

    1 Arm Rope Extension in front instead of the side (basically turn your hips to the right if its the right arm left for the left arm) SS with 2 arm variation.

    preacher curl (inside grip)

    Thoughts on TTA-500

    First week went well, has kept me lean and I find it to be a nice addition to a bulk.
    At first I was a little wary on if it was going to affect me like other fat inhibiting substances. I know it isn't a thermogenic or anything but I was still expecting maybe a slight warming feeling. This is NOT the case, I take my 2-4 pills before eating and I don't feel any difference.

    The proof is actually in my abdominal area, when I up my carb intake it goes straight to my waist line. with TTA-500 I actually feel pretty lean. Especially when I decide to back load my carbs the only thing I notice is my muscles feeling full as F*CK! Glad I could as this in, I'm about to pick up a couple more bottles.

    Stay tuned for other weekly thoughts

    RecoverPro has been helping a lot. Really digging this 4:1:1 ratio
    Like I said in the first post I never really noticed a difference with them before but while fasting I have noticed a definite change. I recover faster and my muscles stay fuller longer, also really helps take the edge off of hunger. Like everyone else on this forum I have an insatiable fetish for eating and I turn into a prissy princess when I'm hungry, this helps me not rip everyone's head off for breathing too close to me or something.

    Just my thoughts on it!

    Feel a little funny today, Creatine never sits well with my stomach and for some reason I decided to mix a scoop in with my recoverpro. Now it's bothering me, just took 2 more scoops of RP hoping that'll help.

    Today should be day 7 of Smolov jr plus leg hypertrophy but if I keep feeling this bad I'll save legs for a day I can actually kill them. I hate missing a day but I hate not being able to focus and give it my all even more.

    I wanted to try that trick but then I got sick. I'm really interested in trying it with 1 scoop micro & 1 scoop hemavol. Getting some nitrates and stims in there.

    I had great pumps from WMS + 2 scoops micro, plan Jane. Good to hear feedback though.

    Day 11 of Smolov Jr

    1 scoop ignite

    School and work screwed up everything, lifted at like 1030 pm -_-

    8 sets 4 at 80% + 10 kg

    Warm up with bar
    "" w/ 135
    "" w/ 225
    "" w/ 245

    Whoops, actually did 280 instead of 260. Like I said worked out super late. But I mean now I feel like a total boss. 20 lbs over what I should have done but still

    Working sets (long breaks, like 2 minutes)
    280x4
    280x4
    280x4
    280x4
    280x4
    280x4
    280x4 last one needed my bud to help with 2 fingers barely
    280x4 same thing for last rep

    My chest honestly felt like it was getting torn to ribbons. Killer

    Farmers Walk with deadlift bb
    1 pps
    2 pps
    3 pps

    Deads
    3 pps x6 just for some extra core work
