    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.

    Just an uneducated guess???

    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?

  7. 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.

  8. Just checking in on ya Jim. Keep doing what your doing! I had a horrible weekend and I am dealing with some very rough personal issues that I would never wish upon anyone.

    Cheers!

    Just got railed by the 82nd ABN. Early day tomorrow and late night tonight, hit the gym and will update tomorrow.

  11. 19NOV2012 ME Upper

    Band Bench Press: 3-5RM weight +2 extra heavy bands, my guess is that they add about 40 lbs of weight at lockout the way I have them set up.
    95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 155x5, 175x4, 185x1

    Chins: 2x MAX
    BWx10, BWx8, BWx8 (decided on an extra set, was feeling strong)

    By this point I had a good upper body pump, wearing my standard 1 size too large shirt and my back and shoulders looked swollen.

    a1. Cable Rows: 3x8-12
    100x10, 100x8, 100x8 (lower weight than usual but was getting a really good contraction with this weight so I kept it)
    a2. Band Pull Apart: 3x8-12
    1 Band x8, 8, 8 (grabbed the spot that wouldn't allow more than 8 reps, I was fighting for these.)

    BB Shrugs: 3x8-15
    135x15, 185x7 +8(S), 225x12(S)

    Picked up McDonalds after this workout because it was already 2100. It was a long day at work, and it was followed by an even longer one today.

    DE tomorrow, was going to be today but I am feeling really rundown after two nights with not nearly enough sleep and there are rumors of a PT test tomorrow and I don't particularly want to have fatigued legs and then be told to run 2 miles in as little time as possible.

    Have a good night guys, I'm going to sleep!

  12. No other workouts this week. Will be doing RE Upper tomorrow and ME lower on Sat.

    About to eat some rotisserie chicken, insta potatoes, and green beans for Thanksgiving. Happy Turkey day everyone!

  13. 23NOV2012 RE Upper

    Dips: 3xMAX
    BWx15, +25x13, +45x9

    a1. Cable Pull-Aparts: 3-4x8-12
    30x10, 40x8, 30x8
    a2. Chins: 3-4x8-12
    BWx8, BWx8, BWx6

    BB Military Press: 3-4x8-12
    75x10, 95x8, 115x8

    b1. DB Shrugs: 3x8-10
    75x10, 85x10, 95x10
    b2. Hammer Curls: 3x8-10
    25x8, 30x7, 25x7

    Heavy DB Holds: 2-3xMax time
    95xFail, 100xFail, 90xFail

    This workout felt great, I went into it with no stims and just used the Uptake. The pump was phenomenal from the beginning and the only problem I had was my forearm pump making it hard as hell to hold the dumbbells for a decent amount of time. The change from Floor Press to Dips was great, I love dips!

    Also I realized that I had been forgetting to do the Mil. Press (woops!) and doing those after some time away from them was a trip.

    Today's workout on the other hand....

    24NOV2012 ME Lower

    Back Squats: 3-5RM
    135x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5, 245x3

    Reverse Lunge: 3x6-12
    95x6, 115x6, 135x6

    Romanian DL: 3x8-12
    135x8, 155x8x2

    This workout went terribly. I've been real tired today, diet related, and it showed before I even got to the gym. My stomach felt strange on the way there, again diet related, and for some reason my joints have been achy today. My squat numbers are lower than usual but I credit that to changing the way I do them. I learned the squat in football and we were trained to go to parallel, so with me coming back to it after a month or so without it I decided to hit the ATG variety. It makes a huge difference for me and it showed.

    I also went into this workout stim-free and it did not work out for me as well as yesterday. I felt like complete @ss and for the first time in a while couldn't wait to get out of the gym.

    I am certain that this is the culmination of this week's poor diet on my body. We've had a lot of long day's at work and then the holiday which led to an above average amount of Fast Food and ultimately lower performance. Hoping to salvage what's left of today's diet and go into this week strong.

  14. We've all had them days that just don't seem right in the gym. Just don't worry about it, and hit it hard next time.

    I did that with chest one time. Never again.

  19. Phenomenal Workout Today! Didn't expect it to be going into because my joints have been achy the last few days (possibly free test, more likely is dehydration)

    Once I got going, and had the music going I was all about the weights, there was nothing else. Took the Marinade again and felt like a boss (even though it destroys my appetite usually even at the 1/2 scoop I use) and the Uptake has kept me looking vascular as fuark (for me at least)

    At this point I have begun my second bottle of Free Test and still have a decent bit of my original IGF2 bottle to go before cracking open the second. I am really starting to notice steady strength increases (nothing ridiculous but steady PR's are a good sign), enhanced recovery (I was almost sad that I wasn't sore after last week's exercise changes even after squats!) and a steady "fullness" to my muscles. Not a full blown pump throughout the day but a noticeable density increase.

    Todays workout:

    26NOV2012 ME Upper

    Band Bench Press: 3-5 RM Weight + aforementioned EH bands
    45x5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 165x5, 185x2 (PR 185x1)

    Chins: 2x MAX
    BWx9, +25x4--BWx4

    a1. Cable Rows: 3x8-12
    100x10, 100x12, 110x8
    a2. Cable Pull Apart: 3x8-12
    30x10, 30x10, 40x6

    BB Shrugs: 3x8-15
    135x12, 185x12, 225x4 (No straps, complete grip failure)

    I started off shaky with the Band BP but after the first few sets I was pumpin' em out. Got a PR by 1 rep but 1 rep is improvement and that's all I'm looking for! By the second set of the Cable Rows I was feeling invincible, I had to force myself to stop at 12 so that I could up the weight and perform the final set with full contractions! Pump was incredible, wanted to take a picture but hate being "that guy" in the gym. Trying to force my grip to improve and just wasn't able to keep the weight in my fingers on the final set of Shrugs.

    Feeling good right now. Bout to rack out, calves are sore from the run this morning (the calf pump was retarded), and my knees (particularly the left) are aching. Good night everyone, see you in the morning!

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

  22. No other workouts this week. Been getting off work late and going in early.

  23. Yesterdays workout was with 6x Uptake and 1 scoop of ConDense. I took ConDense for a hopeful boost in endurance since I was shortening the rest periods significantly. I think it went well although it is not a combination I will do again, the pump was painful. Can't comment on vascularity due to lifting in a hoodie but I can definitely say this is one of the best workouts I have had, focus wise at least.

    30NOV2012 RE Upper Body

    Weighted Dips: (trying to keep it around 10-15)
    BWx15, +25x15, +45x9 (PR +45x8)

    BB Military Press (someone was on the cables so I moved to the next exercise)
    75x10, 95x8, 115x4, 115x5 (less than last time but I think the rest period had something to do with it)

    a1. Cable Pull Apart
    30x10, 30x10, 40x8
    a2. Chins
    BWx9, BWx8, +25x3.5--BWx4.5

    b1. DB Shrugs
    70x10, 85x8, 95x9
    b2. Hammer Curls
    20x8, 20x8, 25x7

    My forearms were pumped up after this workout, cripplingly so actually, I had to try to shake them out so that I could grip the weight on the last few sets.

    Also I took new measurements today, weight is down again. Consequently I am forced to bump my kCals again and based on what I have seen thus far I am bumping it significantly more than I did previously.

    Will be 4500 from now on. I will be reevaluating the macro breakdown and posting it in here later today.

    All measurements were again taken in a fasted, unflexed state. My chest measurement is up significantly, everything else is negligible.

    So far my weight is up a total of .7lbs. It's been very inconsistent thus far and has been going down the past few weeks, which is why I will be bumping calories again.

  27. Got Monday's ME upper in.

    Will post numbers tonight hopefully, was running on three hours of sleep but didn't notice any significant change in strength.

    Notable lifts that I can remember off the top of my head was:

    Barbell Bench Press - 205x2.5

    I forgot my bands this time so it was just BB. This isn't a PR, but it was around my last 3 Rep Max, which is significant considering the rest I was afforded.

    Another note on BP, all the sets up to this point felt good and my body stayed tight throughout the lift. When I put 205 on I noticed my left side had a tendency of trying to turn, it happened on the 1st and 3rd attempts.

    I'm actually feeling a little soreness now, which is awesome because I normally don't and sometimes I miss it. Been doing a lot of ORS crap which has been screwing my schedule up. But I'm still gonna try to get in the gym today (although I haven't decided on what ill be doing)

    Really feeling good. Not too many new effects to report on the stack, I'm noticing that I look leaner at a pound or so above my starting weight but the final pics will be the judge of that.

    Also vascularity is definitely up all day. I'm not particularly vascular to start with so the change was significant. Not really an all day thing, just when I do something. Have been getting pumps throughout the day, even when barely doing anything.

  28. ME Upper: 3Dec2012

    Bench Press: 3-5RM
    95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 155x5, 175x5, 195x5, 205x2.5

    Pull- ups- (overhand grip)
    BWx8, BWx7

    a1. Cable Rows
    100x10, 110x9, 120x8
    a2. Cable Pull apart
    30x8, 30x10, 40x6

    This is the only workout thus far this week. I haven't gotten off of work earlier than 8 for the last week (In fact I just got home from work), tomorrow is supposed to be an early day (pay day activities) and then no work on Saturday.

  29. Weight is up to 165.6 today.

    Most of this is water due to the poor diet I have been forced into this week. It's been tons of high sodium fast food and little to no sleep.

    Missed my workout yesterday, got off earlier than regular but passed out once I got home and woke up late. Doing ME lower in an hour or so and then doing RE upper at around 2100 to get them both in this week.

    Not a lot of food left in my house so I will be shopping later today as well.
