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.

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.

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.

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.
By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

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.

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.
im the sh!t, even your girlfriend can smell it

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.)
