Gotta get those rest days in, they're underrated. Do you record your weight for each exercise?
What's up Hoot? Sorry I have been MIA for a while. I'm about to leave on a long vacation, so it isn't going to get much better. You are in good hands with OrganicShadow. Out of all of our reps, I think he offers the best blend of exercise, nutrition and product knowledge.
I'm glad that you are improving on your lifts. As far as easy preworkout meals go, OS has offered some solid choices. I like green apples pwo as an option too.
Yea, gotta have rest days! OrganicShadow, I do record my weight but I was too embarassed to post them on here. I am increasing my weights but no where near what alot of people are lifting on here. Yea, I know Rome wasnt built overnight but I'm just not a heavy lifter YET. I am getting there eventually. It is harder for me to grow muscle... guess it's the age thing and low test. Anyways, good to hear from ya Dewey! I wish I could get a long vacation! I need one!
Well I am running a little behind this week. It has been a busy week already. Still all the same. I do feel some growth in my arms and chest. I wish I had measured them. Its going to be hard to stay under 2000 calories toward the end of this week but I am going to try my best. Probably need to do more cardio. Yesterday and today's workout was awesome. Both days I had strawberries with my pre-workout protein shake. I did fell alot different... more energy to push through my workout. My workout is the same this week as last but weight increased again and reps are down to 3-5. I like this phase. Next week will be back to high reps of 15.
Sleep is still real good.... too good! Wife is getting tired of the snoring.. Lol
Just had an awesome workout this morning! Stayed in the gym for 3 hrs. Did my highest squats! 205 lbs. 4 sets of 5. Had a great workout yesterday too but today's was off the chain & I'm still pumped up. I did my regular workout plus a lot more like negative benchpress. Everything is the same. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving & enjoys time with the family!
Well sorry that it has been a while since I have posted. It has been hectic lately at work and with the family but I've been staying with a clean diet (except for thursday) and my regular workout routine plus some. Monday was weigh in day again and I gained another lb. I still think it is muscle because waist is not getting larger. Everything else is still staying the same with sleep and libido (been in overdrive lately). I had a great workout yesterday morning, evening and this morning. My reps have increased and some of the exercises have changed so it is taking longer to get workout done and recovery time is a little longer so I had to finish after work yesterday and I will have to finsih after work today.
This was workout for yesterday:
bench press 4 X 15
-grip incline dumbbell press 3 X 15
incline dumbbell flye 3 X 15
cable crossover 3 X 15
triceps pressdown 3 X 15
one-arm overhead cable triceps extension 3 X 15
close-grip bench press 3 X 15
standing calf raise 4 X 30
seated calf raise 4 X 30
dumbbell bent-over row 4 X 15
wide-grip pulldown 3 X 15
straight-arm pulldown 3 X 15
seated cable row 3 X 15
barbell curl 4 X 15
incline cable curl 3 X 15
dumbbell concentration curl 3 X 15
hip thrust 3 X 30
crunch 3 X 30
oblique crunch 3 X 30
This is the beginning of my 7th week so I have 2 more weeks on this stack then goin back to see the Doc and get bloodtest ran again. I will post results after that.
How do you all think I am doing? Any input?
Well... Sorry guys, I didnt have much time last week but I am still on track. I finished up last week with a rough week with the high reps. This week the reps have dropped to 10 and increased the weight.
This is my last week on this stack and matter fact tomorrow will be my last dose of free test. I am goin to finish out the week and maybe next week with just the HGH UP. It has been an interesting ride but I feel that I have failed. Sorry David! Anyways, I do feel that it has helped me increase muscle. My weight this morning was the same so didnt gain or loose anything last week. I will probably go to the Dr this wednesday to have blood drawn to see where I am at on test now and check other normal stuff. Overall, I feel great! Recovery has been up and down but overall has been better. I think next week after I come of the stack and weeks after that I will probably notice the difference more.
