    -Bench Press
    20x135
    8x225
    3x275 with slight assistance, uhg
    5x245
    Not impressed by these numbers today. Guess I just have to keep working hard at it!

    -Incline Bench Press
    a bunch x135
    fair amount x185
    4 or 5x225
    Frustrating cause it seems I lost a little strength after my sickness last week. I'll get it back quickly though.

    Then I did a multi-compound set using Nautilus
    -Incline press, Horitontal grip
    -Incline press, Vertical grip
    -Seated Chest Press, Horizontal grip
    -Seated Chest Press, Vertical grip

    These were done with NO rest in between sets. My last few reps on both the vertical grips ended up being partial reps

    I did this rotation for 3-4 sets

    -Cable Flyes

    -Pec Dec

    I felt that energy was decent but not great. Going to try 2 scoops of supp-d next time. I did get better pumps which was nice.

    Afterwards I had my typical 3 scoops of Recover-D, to get 42g of protein, in the gym bathroom.
    Good workout bro!
    I should keep a log. Hmmm.. What supp to log lol.

    During my "vacation" I stopped all use of NLA products, as to not waste them. I started back up again with T-Blast last night. Going to hit the gym here in a few minutes.


    Yesterday's workout was legs and it went well.


    -Started off with back squats. I start light and pyramid up. I haven't been able to go heavy on squats for awhile because my knees suck and they get inflamed, however, the Cissus really seems to be helping with that and lately I've been able to do quite a bit more.


    15x135 warmup
    10x225
    8x315 Video included below
    3x315 and tried to go deeper. I really need to work on my flexibility. Video for these are included as well.


















    and yes, I'm squatting in Vans, lol!




    -Then did me some Leg Press


    -Seated Hamstring Curls, FM
    max stack at 200


    -Laying Hamstring Curls, Rest-Pause style


    -Calf Press


    -Calf Raises


    -Abductors
    -Adductors

    Took one scoop/serving of SUPP-D preworkout about 1 hour before I started working out. Usually I don't wait so long but I got delayed waiting for my training partner. The taste is foul but effects were decent. Good stim without being overdone and had good focus in the gym today. 2 scoops was a bit too much so I think tomorrow I'll try 1 1/2. I took SWOLL-N 15 minutes before my workout, took 1 serving of 3 caps.


    Here's what I did today. Chest and abs.


    -Flat Bench Press:
    15x135
    8x225
    2x315 (1 assisted by spotter)
    3x275


    -Incline Bench Press:
    12x135
    8x225 This set felt pretty good so I decided to shoot up the weight and go for a PR.
    0x275 FAIL! I got 3 reps but they were all assisted. The spotter said he barely helped on one and that I should count it but I don't count anything that somebody else has to help on.
    4x255 Did 2 without assistance and 2 with.


    -Hammer Strength Incline Press
    compound setted with:
    -HS Iso-Lateral Press
    3 sets


    -Pec Dec
    3 sets


    Abs


    -Weighted standing crunches


    -Crunch chair, not sure what it's called


    did a few sets of each


    Finished off by doing DC stretches for my chest.


    Afterwards I had 3 scoops of the Recover-D post workout protein in 20 oz of water. Mixed and tasted pretty good.

    Ah, yeah not really into that scene or the magazines either. I'm sure he's a beast. I will be going to the Arnold in a couple months though.

    Yesterday I did delts and some abs again.

    I was able to put up 185 for overhead press, which I was happy with because I feel it's one of my weaker lifts.

    Also did upright rows, lat raises, and rear delts. Not much for details here because I made the mistake of letting my mother come with me. I barely had time to complete a set before she was back interrupting me with something silly. I felt the pump coming on but that just ruined it with the constant interruptions. 1 and 1/2 scoops of Supp-D seems to be about the perfect amount for me. Today is my rest day and I'll be back at it tomorrow morning.

    Today I took 1.5 scoops of Supp-D preworkout, about 30 minutes prior. Today was forearms and calves, a bit different. Didn't want to take Swoll-N for this one.

    -Barbell Wrist Extensions
    supersetted with
    -Barbell Wrist Curls

    did about 6 sets of these

    -Behind the Back Barbell Wrist Curls
    supersetted with:
    -Hammer Curls

    Got a pretty good forearm pump.

    On to calves.

    -Calf Raises
    did about 6-7 sets

    -Seated Calf Raise
    supersetted with:
    -Tibia Raises

    After this my workout partner was done but I felt great and wanted to keep going and hit something else. I felt fully recovered from my day off yesterday. We're hitting legs tomorrow so I decided to do a bit of upper body and then just kept going.

    My goal here was to go heavy enough to stimulate the muscle but not exhaust them so that I can still hit them good later this week.

    -FM Cable Shoulder Press
    3 sets at full stack, 150 lbs

    -DB Incline Press
    3 sets with 90 lbs'ers

    -HS Pullovers
    2,4, then 6 plates. These felt good. I felt stronger on these then I did the last time I did them a couple weeks ago.

    -Lat Pulldowns

    -Rear Delt Flyes
    supersetted with:
    -Pec Flyes

    Figured this was probably enough, especially since I had been working out for about 2-2.5 hours.

    Felt good today, plenty of good energy. I'm liking the effects of Supp-D but still hating the taste.

    I've been taking the full dose of T-Blast every night. Not quite enough for me to comment on though.

    My workout today was fantastic. My workout partner was a bum and didn't show up but I still made the magic happen anyways. Today was legs.

    I started with back squats.

    -Squats
    a bunch x135
    8x225
    6x315
    Here is where I decided, hey those felt pretty good, I'm going to push it today so I loaded up another 50 pounds and then grabbed the guy squatting next to me and asked if he'd spot me. He looked at the weight and hesitated. Then he asked another guy to help him and said he was more comfortable if he had two people, one on each end, lol! It wan't that heavy but I guess he wasn't used to spotting.
    2x365 PR! The second one I came down and was a little forward which made it more difficult to get back up, especially with crappy spotters who just watched me struggle. I decided there was no way I was going for another with them. I'll wait until my partner is back for that. Nice way to bring in the new year though with a PR!

    -Leg Press on Nautilous. Different kinda feel from a sled as the heels kinda move in and down as you go through the motion but I liked it.
    Went up two plates each set until the last one at 16 plates or 720 lbs.

    -Laying Hamstring Curls
    I focused on having a full and powerful contraction with a very slow eccentric release. Really helped me feel them at a lighter weight too.

    -Abductors
    150 for all

    -Adductors
    Max of 170 for all

    -Seated Hamstring Curls FM
    Max 200 for all sets

    No calves today since I did them yesterday and will do more tonight when I play basketball.

    I didn't take Swoll-N on purpose since it was leg day but I did feel a great pump in them from the Supp-D and had nice energy again.

    I was very irritated by the people though. Tons of new people, which clogs up equipment but that doesn't always make it bad, unless you get stuck with one of them spotting you on squats! It was this couple in their 60's. They often like to come over to me (and others in the gym) and talk about all their same problems and fitness goals, which never change, and blah blah blah. I mean it's the same thing everytime. I'm a nice guy and don't like being rude but if I'm trying to workout, have my ipod in and am trying to ignore you, then go away! Nope, I got caught 4 times by them, freakin' 4! Both caught me individually twice. The last two times I didn't even take my earbuds out, and I kept working out to no avail. Oh well, I still had a really good workout today.

    Recover-D tastes good but I'm noticing the same flatulence problems that I did last time, which stopped when I gave it a break.

    You're very close to breaking the 400 pound barrier on squats.. It feels great to be squatting with 4 plates on each side!

    Delts got hit nicely today. I only took Swoll-N today at 4 caps, to better gauge their individual performance. I must say that I did get a pretty good pump going from it.


    Did my workout today exactly as laid out:


    -DB OHP
    60 lbs each DB (for all)
    80
    75
    70
    60
    reps were all in my typical 8 +/- 2 range


    -DB Reverse Flyes Laying supinated against incline bench
    If I don't put the weight, then I don't remember it or it was too girly for me to even mention!
    5 sets


    -Barbell OHP
    135
    185
    185
    135


    -Side DB Lateral Raises
    3 sets


    -Upright BB Rows
    3 sets


    -Machine Side Lat Raises
    4 sets


    -Reverse Cable Flyes
    3-4 sets


    Took my 3 scoops of Recover-D after my workout. This 2 lbs tub is going to go fast!

    I took SUPP-D at 1.5 scoops and 4 caps of Swoll-n about 45 minutes before. I then hit chest and by the time I was done, I could feel a nice pump. I also had a couple people comment on it so it was definitely there.

    -Bench Press
    135
    225
    315 this one was not as smooth as I would have liked. I ended up doing about 4 with spotter help
    225

    -Incline Bench Press
    only worked up to 225 today

    -Flat DB Bench Press
    I really hate getting the DB's into position for this one. Probably should have done this one first when I was fresh.

    -Cable Flyes
    did about 6 sets here, really trying to focus more on good contraction

    -Pec Dec
    Did a ton here, probably 6 sets and then did a 4 set drop set cause they just felt really good today.


    Then did some abs

    -Decline situps

    -Weighted crunches

    -Leg Raises

    I sat in the steam room afterwards cause I'm starting to feel sick today. Took my multi and ester-c as well. Hopefully I can kick it quickly.

    What position do you mean for your DB bench? How is your elbow position? Do you keep them in or do you flare them out for more of a wide grip DB bench?

    Naw, I mean getting the heavy DB's hoisted up over my head in the starting position. One of my buddies rests them on his knees and holds them with stiff arms, he then rocks back and throws them up over his head at the same time. I tried that and it took a bit to get it to work but each time I'm afraid of it coming down on my face. The other option is just kicking them up to my chest, laying back and then starting from the bottom, which seems safer but more difficult of a position to begin. I'm just not used to doing them with DB's on a flat bench. Incline DB's I'm fine with but it's much easier as I just kick them to my shoulders and then push em up. Maybe it's just me, I dunno.

    yeah I liked that! So not only did I notice it but so did others. My wife and I have the exact same symptoms and got it at the exact same time so I'm thinking we both came in contact with the same person or thing. I'm feeling sick but not terrible today. I think this one will be a quickie.

    That's how I always do them... basically resting them on my quads hammer oriented, lay back, then basically 'step' each leg up, bringing the weight into position.


    Get well man- my wife and I just got over being sick

    I guess I just need to adapt and get used to it. I usually just do BB but I like the joint mobility of DB's so I'm going to try and start incorporating them in more. Thanks bro, I hate getting sick. It seems like my kids are always sick.

    Man I hate being sick. It's mainly congestion and feeling a bit drained but it's still annoying. After I got up and started moving around after a few hours I started feeling better. Good enough to go to the gym. I needed to hit my back this week anyways. I took a thera-flu strip just to keep me from snotting on anybody or anything while there. I don't think I needed it but wanted to take what measures I could not to share it.


    For preworkout I took 1.5 scoop SUPP-D, 5g creatine mono, 6g citrullene malate, and 5g leucine.


    -Lat Pulldowns
    went up to 240 today, those were hard to hold onto


    -Rack Pulls
    135
    225
    315
    315
    405 For this set I used my belt. I got a full set in and felt pretty good so I decided to push it a bit.
    500 got 7 reps here but I had to use my Versa Gripps, that's ok though since I wasn't working out my forearms anyways.
    I did better then I though so I decided screw it, lets see if I can take it even further.
    545 PR! Got 1.5 reps in. I got the first full rep in on my second try. Then tried another and got about half way down before I pulled up, tried full range again and that's where it ended. I'm really glad I got it up too cause I had a few people watching me, lol! Tons of new year resolutioners crowding the gym up.
    16x225 to finish off


    -Yate Row
    225
    205
    Then did the next sets as drop sets
    205
    185
    135


    -Bent Over DB Rows
    12x100 (ea DB)
    10x130 These felt better then I thought they would so I decided to go all out on the next set.
    6x155 PR! That's the highest DB's the gym has so that felt nice!


    -Seated low Cable Rows
    supersetted with:
    -Straight Arm Lat Pushdowns


    This was almost two hours in now and time for me to be done.


    I didn't take my post workout shake because I started feeling really crappy and that if I tried to drink anything I would throw it up. I might have pushed myself a bit too hard today while trying to overcome the sickness. Still had a great workout though!
