    Definitely a respectable home gym there. Much better than this one:




  2. Good update there, homie! Keep updating like that and this log will be rocking. 2000 calories is pretty low for someone 211 lbs. How are you gaining weight? That doesn't seem possible with such low cal-intake.

    Nice gym, too!

  3. Thanks Dewey and drooks! I enjoy my gym & its a lot easier to just walk out my backdoor & into the garage to workout. My wife says that's all I do besides work, eat & sleep. What else is there to do? Lol
    Where should my calorie intake be? I would love to loose some more weight especially in mid-section but I want to gain some lean muscle other areas.

  4. This morning was back, biceps and abs. I didnt get finished with all of this workout this morning. It was kinda cold in the gym. Looks like since I am in heating and air, I would have installed some heat in there by now. Anyways, this is my workout for today:
    Dumbbell bent-over row 4 X 12-15
    Behind-neck pulldown 3 X 12-15
    Seated cable row 3 X 12-15
    Reverse-grip pulldown 3 X 12-15
    Barbell curl 4 X 12-15
    Preacher curl 3 X 12-15
    Behind-back cable curl 3 X 12-15
    Hip thrust 3 X 20-30
    Crunch 3 X 20-30
    Oblique Crunch 3 X 20-30

    I will have to go back out there this afternoon after work to do the last 3 exercises. It was alot to do this morning in 1hr 15mins.
    I felt really pumped up this morning for some reason though. Still not doing a pre-workout, just water and 4 free test as soon as I get up. I will have to post my daily routine after I get some work done. Also got some pics to post this morning. I hope I dont gross yall out but you will be able to put a face with the name. Stay tuned!

  5. This pic was taken July of 2011. This is when I decided that I needed to do something. I weighed 240 lbs. I started working out 3 weeks after this pic!

    That dang mid-section sticks like freaking gorilla glue!

  7. I'm running this stack in competition prep. I actually have a libido 2 weeks out. Everyone has tough spots man, lower ab flab sticks to me, too. Can't wait for the transformation! You're gonna love it. What's your diet like?

  8. In for this.

  9. Organicshadow - thanks man! My diet does need a little work but it is hard to do with everyday life and kids. I am trying to get my protein up which is hard to do without taking in alot of calories. I am trying to stay under 2000 calories.
    This is my routine for day. Let me know if I am doing things wrong!
    Monday - Friday, off on Saturday & Sunday
    5:15am get up, get dressed, take 4 free test with 2 glasses of water
    5:30am begin warming up and do workout for the day
    6:45am finished with workout and take multi-vitamin, fish oil & maca
    7:30am drink protein shake and eat quick breakfast - eggs or oatmeal
    9:30 - 10:00am eat snack - apple, grapes, protein bar, or peanut butter on wheat bread
    12:00pm eat sensible lunch - tuna, salad, grilled chicken breast, wrap, hamburger patties, green beans, or chicken salad
    3:00 - 3:30pm another snack - protein shake or something from morning snack
    6:30 - 7:30pm supper - which usually is not sensible, I usually eat whatever everyone else is eating at home, I know... this is my weakness
    9:30pm take 5 HGH Up
    10:00pm Go to bed
    Start all over

    So what should I do. Is this all wrong?
    Thanks for everyone's help! I am new to all of this. I know I feel tons better and have plenty of energy. I also know I will never go back to my old lifestyle of eating junkfood and not exercising. I just heard of a guy down the road from me that they found dead on his bathroom floor Monday morning that was 46 yrs old, high blood pressure, big time overweight and didnt take care of himself. He lived by himself and was found by his dad after not showing up for work. He had died before he went to bed the night before. SAD!
    It makes you think about what are we doing to our bodies!
    Everyone have a great afternoon!

  10. What happened? No comments? Did I scare everyone away? I know it is Halloween and all but I swear thats not my costume! lol
    Anyways, today was shoulders,traps & calves. Not so bad this morning. was able to finish with time to spare so I am starting to see a difference there. Here is workout for today:
    Dumbbell shoulder press 4 X 12-15
    Upright row 3 X 12-15
    One-arm cable lateral raise 3 X 12-15
    Bent-over lateral raise 3 X 12-15
    Barbell shrug 4 X 12-15
    Seated calf raise 4 X 25-30
    Leg press calf raise 4 X 25-30

    Today I am starting to double my protein shakes to increase my protein

  11. Another morning workout. No responses but I am going to keep pushing on.
    Was tough this morning. I always have a problem with squats. My legs will be tore up through the weekend now.
    This is what this morning was about:
    Squat 4 X 12-15
    Front squat 3 X 12-15
    Leg extension 3 X 12-15
    Romanian deadlift 4 X 12-15
    Seated leg curl 3 X 12-15
    Hip thrust 3 X 20-30
    Crunch 3 X 20-30
    Plank 3 X 75 sec

    Also did I mention that I hate these high reps week. Next week, the reps will drop to 9-11 and then the following week they will drop to 6-8. Some of the exercises will change too and the weight will go up. Tomorrow is cardio day and what I call a free style day. I will just do some other exercises that I didnt do this week like kettle bell swings and few others. Will post the list tomorrow. Peace!

  12. Yikes, what a story. Sorry I meant to get back to you on your question. If you can, try to figure out your macros and see if you're getting enough of everything. I would try to double up on whole foods rather than shakes for protein.

    HGHUp will show it's best qualities later on in cutting down but the sleep benefits are immediate. I dose it all at night as well, just seems to make sense. Free Test will pop up within a week: looking a little more vascular, increased libido, a little dryer, and overall mood enhancement for that fasted workout (that's far too early for me lol)

    Sorry Hoot, I somehow got unsubscribed from your log. I thought you hadn't posted in a while so I searched and here you are all by yourself until OrganicShadow stepped in. He really knows his stuff and when he asks about your diet he's doing it because as time goes on you will realize that your diet is what really makes or breaks you. Tracking what you are putting into your body is key to ensuring the best results. You should look into and app like Myfitnesspal which makes tracking your food intake a breeze.

  14. Nice work man!

  15. Thanks Organicshadow, Dewey, & Mack! I thought there for awhile that I was all alone! Organicshadow, how do I figure out my macros? I hope I dont sound stupid but I am new to all of this! Just trying to do my best and learn.
    Dewey, yea I know I need to get my diet right and I am working on that. I do have myfinesspal on my droid and have been checking out what I have been eating. Thanks again for your support!!
    Well this morning went really good! I enjoy Fridays at Big Perm's gym. I found that my max on benchpress has gone up 10lbs. I was messing around this morning but this is what I got done:
    Benchpress 4 X 6
    Kettlebell swings 3 X 15
    hanging leg raises 3 X 15
    Sit ups 3 X 25
    Planks and side planks 3 X 75sec
    30 mins jogging on the treadmill

    Well, that's it for this week. I may go out and lift some Saturday afternoon but it will be whatever comes to mind that I feel like doing.
    I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am really loving this stack and ready for my transformation!!
    Peace

  16. Oh yea! Note to self, never do a double scoop of the Ultimate flurry protein shake!! Holy crap! I thought I was gonna explode! My stomach was so bloated that I couldnt hardly bend over. It was crazy! Learned my leasson on that one! And was very gassy

  17. Thanks for the heads yo I bought Flurry for after my show. Haha. I use an app called MyFitnessPal but there's others out there.

    Macros=macronutrients. Protein, carbs, fats. Roughly 1oz chicken is 7g protein for example. A can of tuna is 26g. 1tbsp olive oil is 14g fats... That sort of stuff.

  18. OrganicShadow - I gotcha now. I knew that but just didnt know that was what it was called. Yea I use that app as well.

    Well today was weigh-in day again and I was disappointed again! I gained another 2 lbs. What am I doing wrong? I am trying to keep my calories around 2000 but a couple days I was around 2500. Maybe since all that Halloween candy is gone I will start to drop some pounds! Sweets are my weakness. If I dont see them, I am good.
    Anyways, my workout was good this morning. It was same as last monday except I went up on weights and down to 10 on reps. I didnt sleep as good the past 2 nites. Can someone look at my routine and see if I am doing anything wrong there? It was a couple of posts back.
    I do feel different, my recovery is still better and I am able to get through with my workout quicker. Is that bad?
    Well, thanks for all the help!
    Everyone have a good day and lift hard!

  19. That candy will kill progress no doubt.

    Hey if you can bang out a workout in less time I'm all about that. I'd rather keep intensity high and time duration low. I'm a busy man, can;t be hangin around a gym for hours unless I'm getting paid to do so.

    When's your last meal before bed?

  20. OrganicShadow - I appreciate your input! Yea, I was joking bout the candy. I did have a small piece here and there but not much. It was hard to resist. My last meal of the day is usually no later than 7:30. I usually would have a casein shake before bed but this hgh up said on bottle to take on an empty stomach so I stopped the casein shake. What do you think I am doing wrong?

    Yesterday, I had a good workout. It changed some but it was basically like last week just still lower reps and more weight. This morning I had to take a day off due to technical difficulties and being upset about where our country is headed to now. I will be back at it tomorrow morning or may get an evening workout in.

    I have seen a difference now in other areas. I am getting more zits on my body and I am getting more excited, if you know what I mean. The wife is liking that side!

  21. No shakes pre-bed. The protein could be ruining your sleep. GH and IGF release during sleep is blunted when insulin is present in the bloodstream so you're effectively negating benefits of HGHUp and your own natural GH release. I would try to not have anything 1-2hrs prior to sleep depending on how big your last meal was.

    Acne breakouts from Free Test are common 5-7 days in but subside rather quickly. It's not sever at all just a couple spots and it goes away. That libido boost is always a plus.

  22. Yea, I had stopped the casein shakes about 5 weeks ago. And YES the extra libido is nice especially when you are 40.

    The workout at Big Perm's Gym was great this morning except I have some left elbow pain coming back slowly. I have been battling tennis elbow for a while now. Calories yesterday was at 2345. Still feeling alot of energy and sleeping very well at nite.
    This was this mornings workout:
    15 mins on treadmill
    Dumbbell shoulder press 4 X 9-11
    Upright row 3 X 9-11
    One-arm cable lateral raise 3 X 9-11
    Bent-over lateral raise 3 X 9-11
    Barbell shrug 4 X 9-11
    Seated calf raise 4 X 15-20
    Leg press calf raise 4 X 15-20

    I still stay hungry all the time. I feel as if I am bulking up though.
    I've got a new saying now that I read in my muscle n fitness magazine: Doesnt matter what kind of car you drive, what matters the most is the size of the arms hanging out of the window!
    Do you have any other sayings or quotes that I can post in my gym? Please share!!
    I hope everyone has a great workout today!

  24. OrganicShadow - that is some good ones posted there. I like the one you posted as well!

    Well to day was leg day. Friends dont let friends skip leg day! Lol
    I always have problems with leg day and today it seemed worse. Recovery time was longer. Now my legs will be sore for 3 days. It will be hard for me to step up in the truck. Squats always kill my thighs for some reason!
    Anyways, everything else is still on track.
    workout for today:
    15 mins on treadmill
    squat 4 X 10
    front squat 3 X 10
    leg extension 3 X 10
    romanian deadlift 4 X 10
    leg curl 3 X 10
    hanging leg raise 3 X 15
    weighted crunch 3 X 15
    side plank 3 X 75 sec

    Well Monday starts my 5th week. so I am halfway there. I will probably get a workout in over the weekend but it will prob be something out of the blue. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
    Love, peace, and chicken grease

  25. Good morning AM! Today was weigh in day. I did good... didnt gain nor did I loose though so I guess that's good? I changed my routine this morning after reading an article here on AM. I usually just drink 2 glasses of water with my 4 pills of free test right before my workout. This morning I drank a protein shake with my 4 pills and then a glass of water. It seemed to help. I did notice one difference this morning. About half way through my workout I felt more pumped up or a boost of energy and when I was through with my workout routine, I still wanted to lift or do some other exercises. Wonder what was up with that? Nobody commented or gave me any suggestions on my routine so I dont know if that is good or bad? Am I an outcast now?
    Anyways, I had a great workout this morning. Once again dropped reps and raised weight. I like low reps better! This was workout this morning:
    10 mins on treadmill
    bench press 4 X 7
    incline dumbbell press 3 X 7
    dumbbell flye 3 X 7
    incline cable flye 3 X 7
    triceps pressdown 3 X 7
    dumbbell overhead triceps extension 3 X 7
    lying triceps extension 3 X 7
    standing calf raise 4 X 15
    seated calf raise 4 X 15

    I hope everyone has a great monday!
