Jim takes on AppNut!
- 12-09-2012, 09:00 PM
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
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)
135x5, 155x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5, 245x5, 265x5, 275x3 (Quads, Glutes, and Hams were burning!)
95x8, 135x6, 185x4 (The muscular fatigue was catching up with me, it was hard to balance and get out of the bottom)
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.

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.

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.
DB Split Snatch- 3x3
35x3, 45x3, 50x3
- Split Squat - 45x12, 50x12
-1 Arm DB Incline Press- 40x12, 45x12
-1 Arm DB Incline Chest Supported Row- 40x12, 45x12
-Camel- x5, 5
-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
-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.

My appetite has been down this week too.

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.

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.

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.)

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

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?

A little sore. Chest from the BB bench yesterday.
Got up this morning and did.
16x20m ground start sprints

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.

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.

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

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.
