Bolt hits up NO Uptake, Free Test, and IGF-2
Looks like it is that time again...got the hook up for a nice AN stack of Free Test, NO Uptake, and IGF-2. Will be running these alongside some staples and a couple things I have been using for a bit.
SupplementsFree Test: 2 caps upon waking, 2 caps in the PM.
IGF-2: Building up to 8 caps daily. Most likely 3 upon rising, 2 pre-workout, 3 before bed on training days. 4 in the AM and 4 in the PM on off days.
NO Uptake: Plan to play around with dosing on this and am open to ideas or options people are interested in seeing. Starting with 5 caps pre-workout and 5 taken sometime on off days.
Current Pre-workout Brew:
2 scoops ABC Core + 1 scoop MAN Body Octane.
Have RPM and Black Cats v2 sample bottles that will be used when stims are needed in different combinations.
Slin-sanev2: 2 caps daily
SAN Na-RALA: 2 caps with morning Free Test.
Gut Health: 1 cap daily
CL Oximega: 4 caps daily
Vit. C: 500mg 3 x daily
Vit. D: 5,000ius daily
**Due to Alphamine addiction I will be using it for about another week until the tub is empty. No point in putting a tub that empty away for later.
Very interested in this combo. Have used the majority of ingredients in the AN products but not this total combo or a couple of the ingredients (NMA or Chlorophytum Borivilanium in particular). Am a big fan of the forskolin, ALCAR, NAC, and Erase combo so hoping Free Test is similar to my runs with that combo.
BackgroundOnly been a month or so since my Testify Log. In the month off of logging I completed a beginner Sheiko template that was both intense and interesting as well as pretty fun due to how different it was for me. Weight is up at most a pound over the month, but waist dropped .5". Very successful training month. Was originally planning on continuing Sheiko to start this log then switching up the second month if the log extended, but due to work (Sheiko takes forever some days) and other issues (got sick last week, etc) I decided best to move on. Will definitely attempt a longer Sheiko run down the road when I know I'll have a couple slow months of work.
Last time I maxed my lifts were at (this is within the last two months so not some fantasy weights on the greatest days ever combination ):
The DL is the only one I got a vid of last time I maxed. Will be taping future attempts from now on.LiftingBeen using some more "set" workout plans the last half year plus and finally felt the need to really piece something more "individual" for myself together. Hence I will be doing a Westside/PHAT type training routine. Moreso Westside, but since I have a ton of PHAT experience (and they are more similar than I had known) and lack any direct connection to anyone who has done Westside I feel my workout may not be a true representation of the name. I have researched quite a bit online and pieced together what I believe will benefit me.
Monday: ME Upper
Wednesday: DE Lower
Friday: DE Upper
Saturday: ME Lower
I may delve more into details as the log progresses but the general idea is Main lift, Supplementary lift, Accessory lifts, and Prehab movements. Ya thats how brief I will be for now.
Looking more for strength than size so eating in a moderate surplus. Dropping calories just slightly this week since Sheiko was so grueling, but may be bumped up depending on how this week goes.
Nothing too intense. Just looking to hit daily totals and not really "fasting". I tend to skip breakfast as I am required at work as early as 6 on some days and prefer to just roll out of bed hit some Alphamine and get to work. Usually eat a meal a couple hours later. So to be strict it usually comes down to 12 hour fast/12 hour feeds. (9-10am til 9-10pm).
Strength, recovery, and maybe a little added conditioning if allowed (don't want to stress too many avenues unless it detracts from my strength).
- Since exercises will be rotated in a rather frequent fashion I will be looking at past numbers to determine PRs or bests at current weight.
- Hoping to hit some nice sleep on this. Sheiko did leave me restless occasionally and earlier work schedule was a new shift. Lets see how IGF-2 treats me.
- Didn't really hit any cardio/GPP with Sheiko and while it was only a month off I can feel a slight slip. Adding Prowler, Sleds, etc. if recovery allows.
- Some of my assistance work will be quite high repped so will test out the pump factor for all the pump fiends out there.

Already got my first workout in. Will post it up after work tonight (I hope!).
Also reserving this spot for final review, etc.
12-03-2012, 07:38 PM
Well first workout was today, but I should note due to my OCD I did start the use of these products on December 1 (just held off starting the log until the first workout). Worked my way up with the IGF dose (3 AM, 3 PM first day; 3 AM, 4PM last night) and went with 3 caps NO Uptake prior to a CHO rich meal and 2 pre-bed last two days. Started the Free Test today though (since the bottle life will be shorter, 25 days).
Over the first couple days I didn't expect much, but sleep and vascularity were already improved. Usually get up early based on internal clock.........but slept 11 straight hours on Sunday. I have no idea what happened.
Worked out slightly before noon today. Had one meal in me before.
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 5 NO Uptake pre-workout today.
-Close Grip Bench today
-Worked up to 225lbs. Hit a triple at 225. Was pleased but feeling a little weak so called it a day there (it was a struggle on the last rep).
Was feeling light headed and set up on bench just wasn't happening. Should have probably switched exercises but w/e. I'm stubborn sometimes.
B1)FG DB Incline Press (Neutral Grip): 3 x 10 @ 65lbs
B2)FG DB Row: 3 x 10 @ 70lbs
C1)Facepulls w/ Bands: 3 x 20 @ 2 Reds
C2)Hammer Curl: 3 x 20 @ 25lbs
C3)Triceps Pressdown: 3 x 20 @ whole rack
**FG is for fat grip. Not Fat Gripz but thicker gripped DBs at the gym.
After doing a month of pretty much exclusively Bench, DL, and Squat (Sheiko) the Rows, DB Presses, and Biceps work all "felt" hard today. Went conservative with the weight for the first week (as planned). Biceps strength seems to disappear the fastest, but also returns the quickest for me. I hate doing biceps work though.
Should be at 3100 calories after my last meal soon.
-4 IGF-2 upon waking + 1 scoop RL Alphamine + 2 Free Test
-5 NO Uptake pre-workout. Took 1 cap of it and popped it open and mixed it in water. Mixed pretty well and didn't taste horrible. Don't know why I did but I was curious.
-I got light headed during my workout today. Could be a number of things but I haven't felt that way in awhile.
-Pump on the high rep work was insane. Limited ROM but 20 reps usually provides nice pumps in and of itself.
12-04-2012, 04:45 PM
-Off day from the gym.
-Took 4 IGF + 2 Free Test + 1 scoop RL Alphamine upon waking.
-3 NO Uptake + 1 SlinSane + 1 scoop FP Alphamine before mid-day meal. I actually opened the caps and mixed the NO into Alphamine. Definitely altered taste, but not bad. Probably won't do it again but felt it was worth a try just to see the powder. I know AN doesn't do powders but this stuff might have made a pretty nice powdered product..
-Plan to take 2 more Free Test before final meal and 2 NO + 4 IGF before bed today.
-Biceps are sore as hell right now. Pretty obvious I have done zero with them lately based on how they feel.
-Got some crazy knots in the back. Happens from time to time and probably due to all the pressing in Sheiko. Rolled out on a golf ball today.
-Sleep was awesome despite only ~6hours. Didn't even need a nap and when I woke before 6 I was pretty ready and contemplated skipping my Alphamine...but I love that stuff.
-Have some bands from EliteFTS coming in tomorrow.
Any input from reps or those who have used NO Uptake before on off day dosing would be appreciated. Unless I am missing something most of the ingredients seem more inclined to around a workout and just getting dosed whenever but if a particular time is fine then let me know.
12-05-2012, 07:16 PM
Similar time as Monday. Hit the gym at about noon.
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 3 NO Uptake pre-workout today. Took 2 NO Uptake + 3 Neovar post-workout.
-Medium Stance Box Squats @ 190lbs: 6 sets x 2 w/60s rest.
-Clean Style Deadlifts @ 205lbs: 6 sets x 2 w/60s rest.
Not used to dynamic effort work. Been quite some time since I have tried any. Felt real tired today and wanted to keep this week relatively easy so went with just 6 sets. Will bump up next week most likely.
B1)GHB: 3 x 12 @ BWT
B2)Incline Shrugs: 3 x 12 @ 55lbs
C1)Sled Pulls: 3 x 20yds @ 405lbs + Sled
C2)Reverse Hyper: 3 x 15 @ 10lbs
C3)Hanging Leg Raise: 3 x 12 @ BWT
Felt a strain when DL today. No idea why. Weight is light and form was defintely not off. Regardless my upper glute is bothering me even now as I type this. Literally had this same type of deal at the same time last year. Could hypothesize a ton of reasons why but will just monitor it and do some stuff to hopefully correct it.
GHB was intense on the hams/glutes. Been awhile off of this but the pump was intense. Held the shrugs at the top for a second, but weight was still too light. Hadn't hit sleds in awhile either and while the weight wasn't high it still was rough. Got some serious work to do..
One meal left will probably hit 3200 with my last meal today.
-4 IGF-2 upon waking + 1 Na-RALA + 2 Free Test
-Went with 3 pre/ 2 post for NO Uptake today.
-Still got pretty light headed and had a headache for awhile after my lift. Overall a rough day. Will assume it was the sled but will be upping water and keeping notes on this to see if it is resolved or a possible dosing problem with something.

Same old story. Gym at noon.
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 3 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. Took 2 NO Uptake + 3 Neovar post-workout. (same as Wednesday).
-Bench Press @ 125lbs: 8 sets x 3 w/60s rest.
Felt good and rather light so went with full 8 sets today. Rest may have been less than 60s but blew threw it.
B1)Dips: 3 x 12 @ BWT
B2)Inverted Row: 3 x 12 @ BWT
C1)Pull Ups: 3 x 10 @ BWT
C2)Incline Lateral Delt Raise: 3 x 12 @ 15lbs
D1)Y-Ts combo: 3 x 12 @ 3lbs
D2)EZ Bar Curl: 3 x 12 @ 50lbs
D3)Triceps Rope Pressdown: 3 x 12 @ whole stack. Crappy machine needs way more weight but o well.
Kept rest periods real short and was in and out within an hour. Inverted and Dips felt easy. Thought maybe with short rest the cumulative fatigue would hit me but not so much.
Pull ups were rough. Only 10 reps for 3 sets was pitiful and might be the opposite of a PR.
Neglected Ys and Ts lately but they didn't feel bad today.
Shooting for 3200 by the end of the day.
-1 Na-RALA + 2 Free Test
-Went with 3 pre/ 2 post for NO Uptake today.
-Dropped IGF last night and this morning. I have had a lingering headache and mental fog all week. Felt it may be the culprit. Had a slight headache this morning that went away when I lifted. Doubt dropping IGF would relieve it that quick if it was the cause, but will take the next couple days off to see if it returns. Was really looking forward to trying IGF-2 so I will try adding it in at a low dose later if these headaches subside. Some L-dopa products have given me similar problems before.
-Pump was straight ridiculous even at 3 caps. Maybe it is due to the inclusion of higher rep ranges but this far exceeds what the BO + ABC pre-workout combo normally produces for me. Vascularity is markedly improved all day and definitely some new veins returning/reappearing.
-Weight hasn't budged much this week so a slight increase in calories may be added next week. Look slightly leaner, but that may be just due to increased vascularity.
12-07-2012, 10:56 PM
12-09-2012, 10:33 AM
Morning work so didn't lift until 1.
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO mixed in 8oz Coconut water + 3 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. Took 2 NO Uptake + 3 Neovar post-workout.
-Sumo DL singles: Built up to a single at 405lbs (PR and vid attached).
Never really done Sumo Deads before. Played around with them a little and have done them before but very briefly and definitely not at any significant weight. Lower back area was still feeling off today (has been last couple days) but after a warm up and trying a couple exercises the Sumos felt the most "comfortable" for the day. Only felt it start to creep if I did multiple reps so I just stuck with singles. Took awhile and slowly kept adding weight. Form felt iffy but decided to hit 405 after 395 went real clean. Would love some critique as I haven't done it much before, but definitely struggled initially from the floor on 405 (didn't have that problem on any other attempts) so stopped there.
B1)Slow Eccentric GHB: 3 x 6 @ 15lbs
B2)Standing DB Shurgs: 3 x 10 @ 75lbs
C1)Reverse Hyper: 3 x 10 @ 20lbs
C2)Ab Rollout: 3 x 10
Longer eccentrics today. Shrugs were random and was in the part of the gym that only had DBs up to 75lbs, would rather do something else. Took the Hypers heavier today and will continue to do heavy hypers on ME day and light hypers on DE day (need to focus on these for awhile).
Had to move a ton of crap around the gym today (rearranging) so I didn't do formal sled work. I did have to load huge amounts of DBs and plates onto a moving trolly and push it quite far for several trips. Considered that my sled/prowler work for the day.
Had some nice Tandoori Chicken and Rice for dinner.
Hit 3200 calories again. 240/425/60 (PRO/CHO/FAT)
-1 Na-RALA + 2 Free Test
-Still using the 3pre/2post for No Uptake.
-No headaches to report since dropping IGF-2. Still getting some weird dreams and had trouble waking up in the morning.
-Vascularity is getting ridiculous. My calves are covered in veins daily and some more hip/lower ab veins are popping up.
-Not much in way of a pump with this workout and weights weren't crazy high but felt strong throughout.
Ok having trouble loading vid of 405lbs Sumo. Will try again soon.
12-09-2012, 10:34 AM
Ok here is the vid. Same weight as my clean style DL in my last log but had never really done heavy sumos before.
12-09-2012, 04:25 PM
How do you like the ABC? I ordered some earlier this week, but have yet to try it. I was thinking about combining it with Protocol V2 and Craze pre workout.
Your video doesn't seem to be working (at least for me).

Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO in 8 oz coconut water + 3 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. 3 Neovar/2 NO Uptake post-workout.
-Close Grip Incline Bench today
-200lbs for a triple.
-Did a couple back off sets at 145lbs for 8 reps just to work on form.
-Been a loooooooonnnngggg time since I hit incline with a barbell let alone close grip. Feel that number correlates decently with flat bench numbers, but was hoping to hit at least 205lbs today.
B1)FG DB Incline Press (Neutral Grip): 3 x 8 @ 70lbs
B2)FG DB Row: 3 x 8 @ 75lbs
C1)Facepulls w/ Bands: 3 x 15 @ 2 Reds
C2)Hammer Curl: 3 x 15 @ 30lbs
C3)Triceps Pressdown: 3 x 20 @ whole rack
Endurance felt great so the Cs today were much easier than last week. Stood further away on Facepulls and used a different attachment for Pressdown. Still easy getting 20 other than an insane pump, but will probably have to change exercises to get higher intensity for that assistance triceps movement.
Sister's Bday so hitting Cheesecake Factory tonight...who knows what will be demolished in the process.
-2 Free Test + 1 Na-RALA upon waking.
-Pump was still ridiculous at 3 caps pre-workout. Pretty impressed with the vascularity and fullness.
-Endurance was up on assistance work. Felt easier to move through and I pretty much didn't rest with the final tri-sets. Definitely improved from last week.
-No headaches, light headedness, or anything negative to note today.
-May be totally unrelated but I have been getting some serious gas lately. Possibly the forskolin despite splitting the dose. No stomach pains or other issues but dang haven't had this problem in awhile.
-Woke up before my alarm for the first time in a couple weeks feeling very refreshed. No fatigue, etc. May not be related to Free Test or No Uptake (not sure which ingredients would induce this) but was really nice today.
On a complete side note after compiling quite a protein stash (relative to my usual amounts) I am quite pleased. Love being able to choose a different flavor each day. Been rotating between Peanut Butter Cookie, Cinnamon Bun, Pronom Vanilla, and UP 2.0 Chocolate...pretty awesome.
And last semi-related note...been going through some real irritating work/gym related issues the past almost month. Has really put a bind on some of my training and been pissing me off, but over the last few lifts I have done quite well. Been a very needed outlet. I note this because despite all this I have had a rather pleasant demeanor the last couple of days even after a bunch of crap. Typically I may have raged, but feeling pretty good lately. Probably not stack related but worth noting.

2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 3 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. Took 2 NO Uptake + 3 Neovar post-workout.
-Medium Stance Box Squats @ 200lbs: 8 sets x 2 w/60s rest.
-Clean Style Deadlifts @ 215lbs: 8 sets x 1 w/45-60s rest.
Felt more comfortable today. Weight was moving pretty quick (at least appeared to be IMO).
B1)GHB: 3 x 15 @ BWT
B2)Incline Shrugs: 3 x 15 @ 55lbs
C1)Sled Pulls: 3 x 20yds @ 415lbs + Sled
C2)Reverse Hyper: 3 x 20 @ 10lbs
C3)Hanging Leg Raise: 3 x 15 @ BWT
Back was feeling about 99% today. Moved reps up on everything except sled (added weight there). The 15 reps on GHB were brutal. Everything felt easier today but was definitely more trashed by the end of the workout than last week.
Wasn't as winded this workout as well. While the pump in my legs was pretty brutal it didn't seem to slow me down.
Still have several meals left for the day but should hit just under 3200 with what I have prepared.
-Recovery is pretty good right now. Was sore yesterday but not sore today. Interested to see if this will remain as the workouts continue to progress.
-Intra-workout endurance was up. Probably easiest to notice this on leg days, but wasn't too winded despite moving weight up on sleds and pretty much no rest on all assistance exercises today.
-Sleep was great again at 7 hours. Woke up promptly 30 minutes before my alarm.
-No dizziness,headaches, etc to note (will stop noting this if I don't see anymore by the weekend).
12-14-2012, 03:06 PM
Hit a different gym today around 11:45.
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 4 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. Took 1 NO Uptake + 3 Neovar post-workout. (same as Wednesday).
-Bench Press @ 135lbs: 8 sets x 3 w/60s rest.
B1)Dips: 3 x 15 @ BWT
B2)Neutral Grip Pullup: 3 x 15 @ BWT
C1)Inverted Row: 3 x 15 @ BWT
C2)Incline Lateral Delt Raise: 3 x 15 @ 15lbs
D1)Y-Ts combo: 3 x 15 @ 3lbs
D2)Straight Bar Curl: 3 x 15 @ 50lbs
D3)Triceps Rope Pressdown: 3 x 15
Hit a different gym than usual today so switched pull ups and inverted rows because the dip station was real far away from where I did my inverted rows.
Felt much better on pull ups today and banged out the reps a lot easier. Dips felt pretty easy as well.
Overall wasn't very winded at the end even though I didn't rest much at all between assistance sets. Definitely improved performance even at higher reps than last week.
Christmas/Holiday parties today and tomorrow so hoping to not deviate too far from typical caloric intake but won't be shying away if something looks good.
-1 Na-RALA + 2 Free Test upon waking.
-Went with 4 pre/ 1 post for NO Uptake today.
-Pump was enormous. After the dip and pull up superset I was starting to feel almost restricted on range of motion.
-Different gym today and the one I have been using the last year plus doesn't have mirrors so seeing myself was almost a revelation today. Veins were highly prominent all throughout upper arms and forarms. Definite improvement compared to last time I was in this same gym (lower body fat helps to show some very prominent vascularity right now).
-Endurance was also top notch. Didn't need much rest and wasn't winded despite this lack of rest (as well as no drop off in maintaining rep range). This isn't to say it wasn't hard just that I pushed through pretty easy. If I didn't have a planned progression I would have definitely added weights/more reps than planned today.
Hopefully some 2 week impressions will get posted today or tomorrow when free.
12-15-2012, 03:07 PM
Huge amount of nonsense at work so only had one meal in me before lifting at 1.
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 3 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. Took 2 NO Uptake + 3 Neovar post-workout.
-12" Close Stance Box Squat: Built up to 365lbs for a double. Second rep was a grinder so didn't go for planned triple.
Took a relatively close stance but not super close. Didn't get video of the final set but could tell my chest dropped some on the second rep which doomed it to being the final rep of the set.
B1)Slow Eccentric GHB: 3 x 6 @ 25lbs
B2)BB Shrugs: 3 x 8 @ 185lbs
C1)Reverse Hyper: 3 x 10 @ 25lbs
C2)Ab Rollout: 3 x 10
C3)Prowler: 3 x ~20yds @ 250lbs.
Dbs only up to 75lbs then straight jump to 100lbs so decided to opt for barbell. Went with a slight lean forward and worked on flexing mid trap as well and holding for a second at the top.
Went with the prowler today but weight wasn't enough. Thought it might be by third set but was not so definitely going up next week. Everything else felt relatively easy other than GHB. Last couple reps were tough.
Another Xmas/Bday party today. Didn't really deviate yesterday but been preparing food today and may just give in.
-1 Na-RALA + 2 Free Test upon waking.
-3pre/2post for No Uptake.
-Not much pump at the rep ranges today but actually felt the pump on the prowler was less. Quite often get some calf pumps and tightness in legs from hitting the prowler but today no such problem. Endurance was great. Strength was up as everything felt pretty easy other than the Max Effort work.
-Lats and outer chest are real sore this morning from yesterday.
-Sleep continues to be pretty good and lower back feels about 100% today.

2 Week Observations
So it has been just over 2 weeks of use for me so far and figured I am getting a decent idea of how this stack is working. Kind of hard to totally differentiate how each product works so will go through benefits as a whole.
-This is the aspect within training that has increased the most.
-While weights and reps are set mostly before actual training sessions, the ease with which they are being accomplished was greatly increased during the second week.
-Majority of my assistance work has been higher rep with very little rest. Rest time was actually extremely short during final tri-sets on most days.
-This is most easily noticed as my RPE seems to have decreased for these workouts and while I don't have actual numbers to attribute to this it appeared my heart rate was lower during most of this work the second week compared to week 1 and before.
-Pump was already very high on the first couple workouts due to the high rep range but seemed to increase as the days moved on. Overall at this point this appears mostly training induced (high volume) but extended use the next couple weeks should give a more definitive answer.
-Last arm day was insane and pumps throughout the lats, tris, biceps, chest, and shoulders were very apparent after even a single super-set of dips and chins.
-While the pumps may not solely be increased due to the products used, the vascularity has definitely increased with this stack.
-Veins in lower abs, hips, upper legs, calves, and arms have increased quite a bit in the last two days.
-Felt that IGF-2 was the product that would be best suited to help increase recovery and get good sleep with this stack, but it was dropped a week in.
-Surprisingly I started to get some very good sleep the last several days and have been feeling especially well rested upon waking. Even had some crazy dreams last night.
-Not sure if this is due to anything I am taking but will continue to note from here on.
-May be slightly influenced due to more pronounced veins in certain areas, but may have lost some body fat so far.
-Weight is only up a pound but some of the areas I am seeing veins are typically areas where they are most apparent at leaner stages (I am still relatively lean atm).
-If anything body fat has remained constant and lbm has increased.
-Had some light-headedness and headaches (brain fog) the first week of use. Dropped the IGF-2 and this seemed to alleviate the issue.
-Not 100% sure if this was the cause as some of the during workout effects seemed to be possible nitrate side effects, but have not noted any issues at all in the second week.
-Used the work unrest as I feel it hasn't been anything very substantial, but have had several days of slight stomach issues and some bad gas. Overall nothing too bad and definitely not the worst any product has done to me, but still not the greatest effects.
Overall I have been pleased with the start of this run and hope over the next couple weeks (and possibly beyond) that other potential effects may begin to manifest themselves. So far a positive start.
12-17-2012, 07:51 PM
Hey man, sorry it took me so long to get here. Remind me never to take such a long vacation again.
Thanks for the updates and letting us know your thoughts weeks into this stack. It's unfortunate that the IGF-2 didn't agree with you. It's honestly one of my favorite supps. At least you are getting good sleep and recovery even without it lately.
I'm really surprised that you aren't feeling more pumps from the NO Uptake. Most of the feedback so far (as well as my personal experience) has been that 5-7 caps produces amazing pumps that last forever. I weigh close to 240 lbs. and I take 7 caps pwo. This usually produces great pumps that last most of the day. Maybe you can give 7 caps pwo a try one of these days.
Keep up the great work!
12-17-2012, 10:28 PM
Took 2 scoops ABC + 1 scoop BO + 4 NO Uptake + 1 Black Cats pre-workout today. 3 Neovar/1 NO Uptake post-workout.
-Shoulder Saver Bar Press:
-240lbs for a Triple.
-Did a couple back off sets at 185lbs for 8 reps just to work on form.
-Never done this before. Felt weird getting a triple with that weight even knowing it was a shorter range of motion.
Side note: Dude tried to tell me never to tuck elbows when benching and that I need to flare them out right under the bar, said I was using too much triceps. Was like cool story bro. Miss training at my old facility where it used to be just me and my lifting partner/group most of the time.
B1)FG DB Incline Press (Neutral Grip): 3 x 6 @ 75lbs
B2)FG DB Row: 3 x 8 @ 80lbs
C1)Facepulls w/ Bands and pause at top: 3 x 10 @ 2 Reds
C2)Hammer Curl: 3 x 10 @ 35lbs
C3)Triceps Pressdown: 3 x 10 @ 90lbs (different machine than my old gym so no idea how this weight relates just know it was a harder weight).
Paused on the Face Pulls to make the movement harder. Rows were too easy should have gone up, but just did some easy pull ups and band dislocations in between sets. Final set on Tris and Bis was real tough and had to pump out the last 2-3 reps on each.
Got some turkey sloppy joes waiting to be demolished to end the day right at 3200 cals.
-2 Free Test + 1 Na-RALA upon waking.
-Ok pump is definitely insane. The sets of 10 had me just as pumped as the 15s last week. Was restricting the range of motion by the final set of my Cs.
-Endurance seemed improved again as while it was hard I still could push out some reps I wasn't sure I had in me.
-Veins were all over my arms today. Connecting in ways I had not yet seen before. Cool stuff (even if it is not really important or helpful).
Didn't get a chance to catch my weight at my normal scale so idk how true my weight gain is but up a pound so far but looking lean and mean.
