    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.

  4. 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!

  7. I took my SUPP-D, 1 scoop when I got to the gym along with 5 caps of Swoll-N.

    Chest is today's flavor. Not feeling too hot today as I'm still a bit sick so weights were down a bit, but still did ok.

    -Bench Press:
    135
    185
    225
    275
    255
    225

    -DB Flyes on Incline Bench (did these almost like a flye/press hybrid move, so weight was higher but had more of a pressing motion at the top)
    60
    80
    90
    100 FAIL
    100 FAIL
    60
    Thought I could get the hundreds up but I just wasn't feeling it today.

    -Smith Incline Press:
    225
    185
    135
    135
    135
    135
    Went for higher reps on these instead of power

    -Cable Flyes
    about 4 sets

    DONE. Got a pretty good chest pump again. I was exhausted after this exercise, nothing to do with the preworkout, just my body fighting the sickness at the same time. Took my typical 3 scoop of Recover-D after my workout. One one serving left.

  8. UPDATES!


    Tuesday I got nasty sick. It took on a whole nother level so I didn't get any kind of a workout in.


    Wednesday I felt better and did shoulders. I tried to go really heavy on barbell overhead press. 185 didn't feel too bad so I tried 225. My spotter said he got a good workout in, lol! I tried it again and he said my second set was much better but still, not enough on my own. Glad I tried it though.


    Thursday I did legs. Only thing of note is that I worked up to 335 on squats but didn't want to go any heavier without a spotter. I hate the position on the power rack because the holes are right in between where I need it. One up and I have to tip toe it to the catch bars afterwards. One lower and it feels like I'm trying to start with a good morning. Instead I tried to keep the bar a little bit higher on my traps when I squatted the 335. Unfortunately, that did something to my traps and neck. I got a horrible headache and my neck seized up. Kinda worried me. I went home and tried to make it better. I didn't end up going to the gym Friday because it still killed me.


    Yesterday my neck felt fine after a good sleep. I went to the gym and did back. I did everything heavy. Main thing to note were my rack pulls. I worked up the weight to 495 lbs and did 3 reps. I then decided to go for another PR and tried 585 lbs. It was a beast but I got it for a new PR! Watch the video, I made it just for you!

  11. Yesterday I did legs.


    -Squats
    135
    225
    315
    365
    3x405 PR!
    Had another crappy spotter who grabbed my belt and lifted for my spot.


    -Laying Hamstring Curls
    Did this differently, rest-pause style of 12 breath's with dropping it a pin at a time
    190
    175
    160
    145
    130
    115
    100
    85
    70
    60
    50
    40
    whew my hamstrings were pumped and fatigued after this!


    -Leg Press
    worked up to 720


    -Ab/aductors


    -Seated Hamstring Curls
    max stack of 200 x 3 sets






    Today I did chest.


    -Bench Press:
    135
    225
    275
    295
    315
    315
    275
    225
    The 315's were iffy since my spotter likes to help too much some times.


    -DB Incline Press:
    started at 80's and went up to 110's and then back down. Did about 6 sets.


    -Cable Flyes:
    did a ton


    -Pec Deck
    did about 4 sets


    Got a nice pump from this workout and made my arms throb by the end.


    Finished all the Recover-D protein. I took a couple weeks off to see if my horrid flatulence issues were actually associated with this protein...and it was.


    Supp-D and Swoll-N are dwindling. So far Swoll-N is my favorite of the products so far. T-Blast is ok. I'm making good gains in the gym but I'm also in full bulking mode and going more frequently with greater intensity as well.

  14. Yesterday I did back. I'm feeling stronger there. No rack pulls today, gym partner didn't have much time so I'll hit them again next week. We only had an hour so we did a bunch of sets of basic movements.

    -Seated Rows on Nautilous
    went up to 6 plates per side, that was beastly weight, felt like a half row and a half back extension to get the reps in on that one, lol!

    -DB Rows
    worked up and did my last two sets at 150 lbs for a full 8 rep count. That was nice.

    -Reverse Grip Lat Pulldowns
    I hate these but pahtnah man loves em so I sucked it up and did them anyways.

    My chest sore today from a couple days ago. Don't get that often anymore


    Today we did arms.

    Can't wait to here her results! My gym don't even have 120's, I think some of us guys are gunna take a collection for some in the future because our director of our ymca is a deutche. Our 10 million dollar y will be open in 2 weeks yet he don't want big weights cause it might promote bodybuilding. Can't stand him. Would go else where but its only gym in my small town

    oh dude that sucks! We got a Y here and I hated working out there. Packed with kids that don't have a clue as to what they're doing and the equipment is either sparse, occupied by an old lady who just sits there, or just plain crappy.

    Well the 24hr fitness I have near me is only marginally better.

    Good to see ya still killing it. I need more motivation.... Just losing it in the gym lately.

  25. Did them legs today. Took a just over a scoop and had good energy today.


    I did some light single leg presses to warm-up and then we hit squats.


    Reps are in usually range, for these I hit 10 on all but the last two.


    -Squats
    135
    225
    315
    5x405 Went straight to this weight instead of doing 365 first this time. Technically a PR by adding 2 reps but weight is the same and I actually had a really good spotter this time (my gym partner). After this set my knee killed me pretty intensely and started swelling up. I usually only get the swelling and pain during the movement when I push it too hard. I had to sit down for the next couple set rotations. My other (new) gym partner had Inzer knee wraps and my knee started feeling better by this time so I wrapped them up and tried it again.
    5x405 Got the full set in and they felt much better with no additional pain afterwards. I definitely need to get some knee wraps. I'm going to look for some when I go to the Arnold and hopefully they'll have some good deals.


    -Laying Hamstring Curls
    supersetted with:
    -Leg Press
    supersetted with:
    -Seated Hamstring Curls


    -Leg Press (different one-my gym partners did leg extensions but they kill my knee so I do something else)
    -Then transitioned it into a calf press
    supersetted with:
    -SLDL


    -Seated Calf Raise
    compound setted with:
    -Calf Press on Hack Squat machine


    -Tibialis Raises




    Finished off with some abs
    cruches (tons)
