    Today I felt a little better. My neck is mildly sore today but it wasn't causing any problems.

    08NOV2012 RE Upper

    DB Floor Press: 3xMAX (15-20)
    50x15, 55x15, 65x13 (PR 65x12)

    a1. Chin-ups: 3x8-12
    BWx10, BWx8, BWx7.5
    a2. Face Pulls: 3x8-12
    80x12, 100x12, 120x9

    b1. DB Shrugs: 3x8-10
    65x10, 75x10, 90x7 (grip failed)
    b2. 1 Arm DB Tricep Ext: 3x10-15
    20x15, 20x15, 25x10 (1 assisted on the left arm)

    Extra: Incline Hammer Strength Chest Press: 3x8-10
    100x10, 100x9, 100x8

    For this workout I used 1 scoop of PNI Prodigy with the 5 caps of Uptake. The pump was strong, the focus was good and I just felt good in general. The Prodigy is not the best tasting, I had watermelon, and I didn't intend to use it because it has it's own pump blend but it was just sitting on my counter staring at me and I told my buddy he could try it before he decided to buy one. You'll notice that I did extra on this workout, I had tons of energy and me and my partner both felt really good so we decided to do more. I really like that exercise for building the MMC with the Pecs, my friend had never done it and he also really enjoyed them! I was going to take some pump pictures for this but didn' twant to be "that guy" in the gym so no pump pron for you Celly! (You must be so dissapointed) End of the week weigh-in tomorrow morning, we'll find out if I have to up my calories again tomorrow!

    We manifest and load up the buses to head to green ramp. After sitting their for an hour or so we go do our sustained airborne training to make sure we can PLF (parachute landing fall) and other basics. One hour later we rig up into our parachutes, they are uncomfortable and squeeze the traps and balls even when put on perfectly. 2+ hours of sitting in our chutes, some sleep and some talk, we load the bird. Its a C130 this time, heavy and unstable, they rock even with no wind. 30 minutes of sitting and we take off, the cabin is not pressurized and we fly for 40 minutes in a big circle waiting for the order to jump. First chalk goes, we see them exit the door and no nothing about what happened to them afterwards. We stand up and connect our static lines and wait for green light, on the command "green light, go" the first jumper leaps from the door. We all follow behind, this time I am the last jumper. I leap out the door and am met by the cold North Carolina wind, its a night jump but I can still see that my canopy is complete. I am falling faster than expected and as I pull my risers to prepare to land I slow down significantly, just as I was trained. 20-50 feet from the ground the wind changes direction and throws me the opposite way, its too late to change now and I squeeze my feet and knees together and brace for impact. Feet hit, I am thrown to the ground like a ragdoll, my head violently smacks the ground and the end result?

    <img src="http://anabolicminds.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=69 751"/>

    And yes, that is dry blood along with my head hitting.so hard my nose bled.

    Airborne, All the Way, Let's Go! :sarcasm:
    Sorry about your head Jim, glad you are alright man.

    I'm glad you are getting in some good workouts in spite of the neck issues. Take care of it though. You don't want to aggravate something like that.

    Thanks for your concern brother! On that note, ME got pushed to tomorrow to get a little rest before deadlifts, hoping it feels like new tomorrow so I can really push my lower body.

    Weight: 161.2

    So I am down 1 lb for this week (ridiculous) which means that I need to bump calories (ridiculous)

    Calories for this point on:

    3800 Calories (+200)
    120g Fat (+0)
    450g Carb (+30)
    230g Pro (+20)


    Ridiculous.

    10NOV2012 ME Lower Body

    Trap Bar Deadlift: 3-5RM
    145x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5, 275x5, 295x5, 315x5 (S), 345x5 (S) (PR 335x5)

    Lunges: 3x6-12
    135x6, 135x6, 185x6

    Pull-Throughs: 3x8-12
    120x12, 140x12, 150x12

    Ab Circuit: 2xCircuit
    Sprinter Sit-up: BWx15, 15
    Russian Twist: BWx15, 15
    Oblique Crunch: BWx10, 10

    Set a new TBar DL PR. My hammies were done after just the DL and I almost fell walking to the power rack for the lunges lol.

    A few notes on Uptake: This is the only supp out of these three that I notice a particularly acute effect. It is definitely something that builds over time though and now every time I run my calves get a RIDICULOUS pump, by the end of my run it's painful to walk they are so pumped. (which is kinda cool tbh)

    My strength is coming along nicely (as you all can see) and even though I'm not eating enough I don't feel as if I'm having issues recovering. This is something that I attribute to these products and I feel great, never really rundown and no more tired than normal. Just hate getting up early lol! I'm sleeping well, had a crazy dream last night, very vivid, but for some reason I can't remember what it was about (I normally can)

    Nothing else to report really, besides how ridiculous it is that I actually require MORE food. Ridiculous.

    12NOV2012 ME Upper

    Bench: 3-5RM
    95x5, 105x5, 115x5, 135x5, 165x5, 185x5, 205x1 (DAMN IT!)

    Chins: 2x MAX
    BWX10, BWx10

    a1. Cable Rows: 3x8-12
    120x10, 120x10, 140x10
    a2. Face Pulls: 3x8-12
    110x10, 110x10, 120x7

    BB Shrugs: 3x8-15
    185x12, 225x12, 225x12

    13NOV2012 : Rest. I was feeling really run down and it was a longer day than usual at work so I opted to plug a recovery day seeing as I only got 1 hour of sleep Monday night before work.

    14NOV2012 DE Lower

    Vertical Jumps: 5-8x1-3
    95x3, 115x3, 135x3, 155x3

    Bulgarian Split Squat: 2-3x 8-10
    30sx8, 30sx8

    Romanian DL: 3x8-12
    95x8, 135x8, 185x8

    A note on this week, this will be my last week with this set of exercises and some of them will be alternated out next week. Particularly on Bench as I have stalled and will either switch to an Incline variation or I will add chains (haven't decided on which although I am leaning towards chains).

    My DE day has changed focus to make it more "dynamic." What I was doing previously, because I'm dumb , was basically two max effort lower body days with different exercises. What I made a point of today was lowering the weight slowly and exploding up out of the bottom of the movement, which is what I should have been doing at the start.

    I did it the way I saw some of the guys in ABs thread (or LTL) say. With milk, protein, and pb. It was just weird.


    I may try it with just chicken broth, as a soup or something along those lines.

    LMFAO!!!! . To be honest that sounds revolting and in my case that would be deadly...I'm allergic to chicken. Yes no BS. Keep that sh*t far away from me.

    GREAT WORKOUT TODAY!

    The only change to today's preworkout was that I had 50g of Karbolyn not long before the Uptake and my PWO of choice today was a sample of ON's PRE that I had lying around (tastes good, works OK but nothing spectacular)

    15NOV2012 RE Upper

    DB Floor Press: 3x MAX (10-15)
    55x15, 60x14, 70x11 (PR 65x13)

    a1. Scarecrows: 3-4x8-12
    30x10, 40x9, 50x7, 50x6 (these are great but I need to figure out a better way to hold the cables! My hands are all f'ed up now! Weight is per arm)
    a2. Chin-ups: 3-4x8-12
    BWx8x3, BWx9

    b1. DB Shrugs: 3x8-10
    70x10, 85x10, 95x10 (No straps PR. 90x8 'I think' Trying to force my grip strength to improve, forced adaptation is the best kind lol)
    b2. DB Tri Ext: 3x10-15
    20x13, 20x12, 25x10 (SMOKED!)

    An interesting note for today is that after the workout I felt hypoglycemic, I have no explanation for this and my intake as of now has been good. Prepping dinner now but still feeling that way, even after eating a little something in walmart.

    Also a few notes on Free Test:
    The Acne has subsided on my chest but I have begun breaking out on my back more than usual. Not really a problem but is definitely noticeable.
    My recovery is still good, I attribute some of this to Free Test but mostly the retarded amount of calories I'm consuming (for me at least)
    Strength is consistently up, I am surprised that I can consistently hit PR's almost every week! (except on BB Bench for some reason )
    My wife says I am a little more on edge, I don't think this is the case (I already have a short fuse just good self control) but more that she likes to have something to blame when I get mad (Not screaming or beating her mad just frustrated with work and things of that nature)

    NO Uptake:
    So far I don't have enough good to say about this product. It works extremely well when combined with the other products in this stack. The pumps are awesome and don't seem to be as carb reliant as other products I have used before. Endurance is definitely there but sometimes I get ridiculous calf pumps when running, which is cool but kinda painful at times lol.

    IGF-2:
    I believe this has a hand in my recovery and strength. A little on the expensive side but I believe it to be very efficient from what I have seen of it so far. If you haven't tried this I would recommend giving it a shot at least once, from my experience about halfway through I will very likely use this again.

    Also my vascularity and definition seems to be improving, I will be posting progress pictures at the end of the first bottles of each product leading into the second (halfway point). It feels good to wear XL shirts :wink: (except for the USPLabs ones, those things are ENORMOUS!) especially when they ride up at the sleeves when I get a pump from any exercise! :happy:

    Final cals : 3450
    my Carb intake was low, this isn't really a big deal though because there was no PT this morning so I didn't require as much food.

    No gym yesterday. We were at work until my gym closed, doing nothing.

    It's probably better though, I tweaked my hammie yesterday doing PT (hyperextended it I guess) it feels better now but I will br rolling it before hitting ME lower today.

    30x10, 40x9, 50x7, 50x6 (these are great but I need to figure out a better way to hold the cables! My hands are all f'ed up now! Weight is per arm)
    a2. Chin-ups: 3-4x8-12
    BWx8x3, BWx9

    b1. DB Shrugs: 3x8-10
    70x10, 85x10, 95x10 (No straps PR. 90x8 'I think' Trying to force my grip strength to improve, forced adaptation is the best kind lol)
    b2. DB Tri Ext: 3x10-15
    20x13, 20x12, 25x10 (SMOKED!)

    An interesting note for today is that after the workout I felt hypoglycemic, I have no explanation for this and my intake as of now has been good. Prepping dinner now but still feeling that way, even after eating a little something in walmart.

    Also a few notes on Free Test:
    The Acne has subsided on my chest but I have begun breaking out on my back more than usual. Not really a problem but is definitely noticeable.
    My recovery is still good, I attribute some of this to Free Test but mostly the retarded amount of calories I'm consuming (for me at least)
    Strength is consistently up, I am surprised that I can consistently hit PR's almost every week! (except on BB Bench for some reason )
    My wife says I am a little more on edge, I don't think this is the case (I already have a short fuse just good self control) but more that she likes to have something to blame when I get mad (Not screaming or beating her mad just frustrated with work and things of that nature)

    NO Uptake:
    So far I don't have enough good to say about this product. It works extremely well when combined with the other products in this stack. The pumps are awesome and don't seem to be as carb reliant as other products I have used before. Endurance is definitely there but sometimes I get ridiculous calf pumps when running, which is cool but kinda painful at times lol.

    IGF-2:
    I believe this has a hand in my recovery and strength. A little on the expensive side but I believe it to be very efficient from what I have seen of it so far. If you haven't tried this I would recommend giving it a shot at least once, from my experience about halfway through I will very likely use this again.

    Also my vascularity and definition seems to be improving, I will be posting progress pictures at the end of the first bottles of each product leading into the second (halfway point). It feels good to wear XL shirts :wink: (except for the USPLabs ones, those things are ENORMOUS!) especially when they ride up at the sleeves when I get a pump from any exercise! :happy:
    Nice man. Sounds like things are still going well and the supps are treating you right.

    17NOV2012 ME Lower

    T-Bar Deadlift: 3-5RM
    45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x1

    Lunges: 3x6-12
    65x6, 95x6, 135x5

    Pull Throughs: 3x8-12
    60x8, 70x8, 90x8

    Ground Based AB circuit: 2 rotations
    Sprinter Sit-Upx15x2
    Russian Twistx15x2
    Oblique Crunchx10x2

    Today I paired the Uptake with ErgoPump. They sent it out to me today (which was awesome because I was just expecting a t-shirt). ErgoPump tastes alright (not a big fan of Fruit Punch) and the kick in the butt was there but it was hard to find motivation, especially after starting today. My hamstring didn't hurt this morning, when doing regular things, but anytime I squat down it screams at me and forceful contractions (every exercise today) were TERRIBLE. I was going to try to push it with the Deadlift to see how high I could go up without feeling like I was going to tear it but it even hurt with the 45lb bar.

    Took it easy with all of the exercises today for those reasons. Will be out and about all weekend so diet is all out of whack (tons of GRF prep crap)

    Also received a package from the guys over at finaflex today, they sent me a few armbands (my wife is sporting the pink), creatrona, and a kicka$$ freak t-shirt! (Hints at next log perhaps )

    Also the hypoglycemic sensation from yesterday did not occur again today. This could have been from the ON Pre that I tried yesterday or just from the intensity of the workout.

    Oh and on a final note, I did notice today that I was sweating a good deal more, even before starting the workout I could feel my body temp rising. Not sure if this is from ErgoPump alone, or if it was a reaction from Uptake and ErgoPump together. I've noticed this a few times during this run, but not to this degree or to a level worth mentioning.

    AB- Yeah, unfortunately today was not much of a fight!

    It does happen to me from time to time as I run low fasting blood glucose as is. Could be a salt issue as well, people can confuse the two easily.

    Salt kinda makes sense... I don't know if they're related, but the times I'm feeling that way I'm also usually sweating like faucet as well...

    I thought that was a possibility as well, although my salt consumption has been excessive.

    And if that be the case that you have been up on the sodium then we can rule that out. It happened to me a lot when I wasnt consuming dairy I only took in maybe 1000-1500mg/day because I wouldnt salt my food at all.

    If he took 50g of karbolyn pre-workout he shot his blood sugar up then worked out and didn't eat for quiet awhile. His blood sugar then dropped which caused the hypoglycemia.

    Just an uneducated guess???

    Frank said it was good. It wasn't.

    Possible but it doesn't really explain why it didn't go away when eating the chips.

    Probably the most likely one though.


    Anyone else feel like Dr. House trying to figure this out?

    No chains today. Too busy to run out and look for some this weekend but instead I will be doing band bench press for ME. Got me two pair of extra heavies that have been wanting a go.
