Jim takes on AppNut!

Page 7 of 8 First ... 5678 Last

  1. This is what I did yesterday, the first workout was at 3PM or so and the second was done at 8PM. This is not my preferred method of getting my workouts in but it was the only way to do it after this crappy week.

    08DEC2012 RE Upper 3PM

    Dips
    BWx15, +25x13, +45x11 (PR)

    a1. Chin-ups (hammer grip)
    BWx8, 9, 9
    a2. Cable Pull Aparts
    30x10, 10, 40x7

    DB Military Press
    45x8, 55x8, 60x6

    b1. DB Shrugs
    75x12, 85x10, 95x8 (Grip failure)
    b2. Hammer Curls
    20x8, 25x8, 25x9

    I took 7 Uptake before this workout and the pump was excellent, I had to stop a few times on the hammer curls and shake out my arms to continue on. It was an enjoyable pain. For the duration of this log I will not be using any other products besides creatine, protein, OT, and the 3 appnut products (taking a stim break)

    08DEC2012 ME Lower (8PM)

    Back Squat
    135x5, 155x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5, 245x5, 265x5, 275x3 (Quads, Glutes, and Hams were burning!)

    Reverse Lunge
    95x8, 135x6, 185x4 (The muscular fatigue was catching up with me, it was hard to balance and get out of the bottom)

    Romanian Deadlift
    135x8, 185x8, 225x4 (Couldn't hold the 225 today, the grip fatigue from the earlier workout caught up with me)

    Went home and ATE and then slept.

    The way I was feeling while doing squats I expected soreness. Needless to say, today I am SORE. The enhanced recovery I had been noticing as of late is not quite enough to fix workouts like yesterdays after a week of inactivity and poor diet. It honestly feels good, my lats are sore, my entire lower body, and my shoulders.

    Today, I've just been sitting around and eating. The goal for today is approximately 3400 calories. I'm a little short as of now, but I'm going to get it before I sleep.


  2. With weighted dips and full on feasting - gonna grow a big chest. Saturation of NO Uptake is in full setting for you! How's the legs feeling? I missed a lot here, sorry for the disappearance.

    They are slightly tender to the touch. My glutes especially.

  4. OK, so I don't generally like to change routines in the middle of a log but I have been talking with our very own zir.red and he has provided me with a personalized program for this month (it will evolve monthly for the next 3 months at a minimum). The first month is based upon unilateral moves to strengthen my core and correct my muscular imbalances (which he was able to find a fair amount of). The first workout went well, it was completely different than I was used to (complexes instead of exercises individually) and it tested my work capacity.

    10DEC2012

    DB Split Snatch- 3x3
    35x3, 45x3, 50x3

    Complex 1
    - Split Squat - 45x12, 50x12
    -1 Arm DB Incline Press- 40x12, 45x12
    -1 Arm DB Incline Chest Supported Row- 40x12, 45x12
    -Camel- x5, 5

    Complex 2
    -Contralateral DB RDL- 35x12, 45x12
    -Depressed Scapula Pull Down- Heavy Band x6, 6
    -1 Arm Push-Up- BWx7, 6
    -1 Arm DB Rear Delt Row- 20x12, 30x12, 30x12

    Complex 3
    -Single Leg BB Hip Bridge- 45x10
    -Hip Rotation- x6
    -Supine Psoas Hip Flexion- Mediumx12


    The gym got closed out before I could finish the rest of this.

  5. Sorry for the silence guys, drove home for leave on friday afternoon and got here saturday morning. Haven't done anything since then, headed to the gym later today.

    Everyday brother.


    I'm not a fan of this type of workout but I know why I need it so I'm gonna keep driving on because I know Jason knows way more about this than I do.


    Also, morning workouts in a fasted state suck balls.

    Interesting program -

    At first I hated fasted workouts - actually love it now. Except with Anabeta - for some reason I feel like sh!t when I take those fasted PWO

  15. I heard pushups help that kinda thing

  16. They definitely do, pushups can fix everything that's wrong with a man's body.

    Had an eventful week, lots of sleeping, and eating and a decent bit of working out.

    Will put all of this week's workouts either tonight or tomorrow morning.

  17. You'll definitely learn to like that program a lot by the end of it. I've been working with him for almost two months now and it has been great.
    im the sh!t, even your girlfriend can smell it

    Friday: Missed Track workout makeup.


    Feeling good, my appetite is still down, possibly because my activity level is lower, but I'm still eating a large amount of food. My recovery between sets has taken a hit, this is from the change in my workout time, it'll level back out this week I'm sure. Feeling a little bit of soreness in my lats but it's nothing extreme. Strength is up, recovery is still improved.

    No new effects to report but all of the old ones are still going strong. (Pump, Muscular Endurance, Strength, Recovery, etc.)

  20. DB Split Snatch 3x3 per arm
    50, 55, 60
    Complex 1
    Split Squat 4x4: 70, 75
    1 Arm DB Incline Press 4x4: 50, 55
    1 Arm DB Incline Chest Supported Row 4x4: 50, 55
    Camel 2x5 per set

    The gym closed before I could finish the first complex (aaargh holidays!)

    So I went home and used some of the stuff in the garage to get a little more in.

    Bench Press:
    135x5, 155x5, 185x5, 205x3, 155 (+bands)x4

    1 Arm DB Row:
    45x10, 50x10 (No more weight )

    Band Pull- Aparts:
    8, 8

    Barbell Curl:
    45x8, 75x8, 95x3

    And now I'm going to eat my chicken tetrazini (or however you spell it), Merry Christmas everyone.

    I'll be back tomorrow for my track workout in the morning, anyone else have a workout planned tomorrow?

  21. A little sore. Chest from the BB bench yesterday.

    Got up this morning and did.

    6xHill Sprints
    16x20m ground start sprints
    5x50m pacers

  22. 1 day behind on my workout. Doing Thursdays track workout later with my wife and today's is happening tomorrow.

    Workout phase changes at the end of next week. Idk what's going to happen but it should be fun.

    Free test ran out yesterday and I'm sad to see it go. Have about a week or a week and a half of Uptake and IGF-2 which will give me a chance to see what effects will be lessened by the end of free test.

  23. Looks solid in here J!

    Thanks brother.

    Drank for the first time in 2 years last night. I deeply regret it right now.


    Gym was closed yesterday and I'm too hungover to workout today.

    Headed back to Bragg in an hour or so.

  26. Back at Bragg

    Went to the gym today to do a prowler workout.

    Popped 4xIGF-2, 2xSuperCissus, 6xUptake on the way to the gym (I don't normally take IGF-2 and SC before a workout but I was on the road all day so that was the best time for it)

    The workout was supposed to be:

    Dynamic Track Warmup
    Band Resisted March - 3x20M
    Prowler Sprints- 10x40M @100%BW
    Cool Down Pacer- 5x50M


    What I actually accomplished:
    Dynamic Track Warmup
    Band Resisted March- 3x20M
    Prowler Sprint- 6x40M @ 160lbs +sled
    Cool Down Pacer- 5x50M

    The prowler sprints kicked my @ss.


    Now that I'm back to my regular schedule I should be able to get back some of the weight I lost over leave. I always loose a few pounds over leave and if I had to guess I would put my weight now anywhere from 161-163 lbs, I just don't have access to the amount of food that I eat on a regular day while I'm on leave and I spend too much time sleeping and don't leave myself much time to eat!

    Hope everyone had a great holiday season.

  27. Those prowler sprints sounds bada**. I might incorporate that myself. A few pounds might just be glyocgen or CP stores, itll bounce back.

    I was lying on the ground at the end of this one.

    That's what I'm hoping as well.

  30. May or may not workout today.

    I am pretty sure we have a record PT test tomorrow morning and if we so I won't be working out after work.

    Will probably go with 3 Uptake before the PT test and then 3-4 before my workout that afternoon.
