- 12-05-2012, 04:38 AM
up early to do some legwork before a long day of work..
thought i'd share a recipe this morning, as i make these pancakes for breakfast.
no pic, cam needs batteries.
2 scoops tasty vanilla protein
3 egg whites
1/4 cup dry oatmeal
1 tsp vanilla extract
enough water to make a batter consistency
mix oats with 1/4 cup water and microwave for 1min
add remaining ingredients and add water to batter consistency
spray skillet w/ Pam
cook in skillet until bubbles form on top, then flip.
optional: top w/ sugar-free syrup or berries
depending on the protein you use..my macros look something like this:

Sorry to hear this champ. Some down time for sure with the legs. Do you feel that leg extensions are still a viable alternative in the interim?

i think i'll just shut wheels down for a week, this was my 2nd leg day in a 4-day span as i wanted to get a lil more frequency in, so i'm good with some rest for now.

lil mid-day update here:
after feeling very ruff still this morning rising, i've made huge progress as the day goes on..worked some back/arms, got a good pump, no issues. since the workout, more mobility is coming back, i can stride normally now.
i won't be sprinting anytime soon, but improvement has been lightning fast, out of the blue..

Strains and pains that effect your mobility are sometimes the most frustrating. It would effect my ability to work if my mobility was hampered. The fast healing is good to hear my friend.

three weeks in on 1-Alpha
all right, so 3 weeks in yesterday..
groin all healed up, feeling good this morning, weighing 206 upon rising, couple lbs up..strength up on all lifts across the board (no PRs, not trying for those; rather, the weights i use in specific rep ranges have all been moved up). i think i've gotten a pretty good feel for this 1-Alpha, now we're going to take it to another level..
the stack now becomes:
2 caps 1-Alpha + 1 cap M-Sten Rx upon rising; same dosing @10hrs later w/ a meal. this will encompass the next 4 weeks, altho i may add some DAA in at some point toward the end. i'm also trying to work some 550XD in there, but this stuff is like a rare bird right now, tuff to get ahold of..exemestane and PCT Black remain remain on hand if needed - have not used yet.
caloric intake ranges from 3000-4000 daily, depending on where i'm at in my ebb/flow (i might drop to 2800 on a low-cal non-workout day).
oh - and the dreaded night sweats have been absent now for 3 days.
12-13-2012, 10:30 AM
everything rolling along very well..
physique changes anew since i've started the M-Sten, without doing anything different than what i been doing or changing the plan. very quick..
libido is jacked thru the roof (thought it was starting to lag from 1-Alpha but last 2 days it's making strong comeback, i'll credit M-Sten since this always happens to me early on in cycle, when i just start something new), strength and pumps are great (1-Alpha been good), body and joints feeling lubed and flexible (Achilles is awesome), energy nice and explosive in the weightroom (Ignite2, love it)..
i am feeling quite righteous.
training has been:
MON - arms/abs
TUE - quads/hams/calves
today will be back and some abs..gonna flare them lats like king cobra.
it's gonna be a beautiful day.

Snags, following your logs from thread to thread is like a game of 'where in the world is Carmon San Diego'
With that said, whenever I'm feeling blah about my diet. I can reference you and your meals to see what eating clean can do! Not to mention you throw some nice "off the beaten path" meals that look great but are still awesome off-season "clean" meals

4 weeks in..
all right so we're 4 weeks in total: first 3 weeks on 1-Alpha alone, the last week on 1-Alpha + M-Sten.
mostly good things to report..workouts have been great, strength at high levels..libido at a nice level.
muscle pump all day long. mood has been decent, lethargy has been non-existent..........until now that is.
this last day or two i seem to be lagging a tad. and today, i had some lower back pumps creeping on. nothing major, but i was sure aware of it let's put it that way. so, we'll keep an eye on that.
as for growth - been pretty outstanding i think. but that presents a problem too..i awoke today at 208, and it's like i crossed a threshhold and feel too big, too inflexible. i need to shift the diet again (and am doing that today), should be fine. i'd rather stay at this weight and recomp than get any bigger i think.
making a shift in the training, will look like this:
1 - quads/calves
2 - chest/tris (abs opt)
3 - back/hams
4 - shoulders/bi (abs opt)
thinking 4 on/3 off, with off days scheduled when i need them rather then a set day.
so today, did quads/calves (was supposed to be off day, will make that tomorrow instead)
did some pulley crossover work as well, been awhile since i've done that.

some protein pancakes today.
(recipe from earlier)
another bagel sandwich. this one:
1 onion bagel
5oz 93% lean ground turkey
1 whole egg
1 slice 2% cheese
3 slices black forest ham
thing was absolutely delightful.
