P. cleans (2 jerks after the cleans)

Did a 5rm check today with a friend who was getting his numbers for the 531 training.
315x3 haha this one I should've just did 305.
Cleanx3 + 1 jerk
First time on this exercise. Love it lol.
275x1.5 yea too high of a jump, but I really wanted 275 Haha.
Calories been hard to meet. With my ever changing schedule, and lack of a personal fridge cooking massive amounts of food with any regularity is not an easy thing. Some weeks my schedule has me at split day off, days off that make a 9 day work stretch, and sometimes 9 hour turn arounds. But still at least I got in my macros yesterday.
Today is my pull up day. ?

So the short break I took from posting was more to get a grasp on my training. It was all over the place due to training about an hour away to meet with a friend to train. Let me tell you training with a partner is WAY better than training alone. So much more motivation and the extra help for a spot on bench or squat is a great mental boost, not to mention the competition.
Anyway I am doing a 531+ program I found on this training app called multi-year. It's basically a squat/bench/deadlift/press with an additional 531 movement on the upper days and does a full horizontal vertical split every upper body day. Also, squat day is a deadlift rep day, and vice versa. It's very good. Here's to getting my 405x5 squat, and 345x5 bench back.
Alphamine was great, good mood boosting, energy, I'm sad to see it go. But enhanced is on it's way and I will be doing a log on that so look out for that one.
I'll post a more detailed review of Alaphmine when I get back from the gym and grocery shopping

whilst I see a training partner is great, I don't want to be slowed down...my gf slows me down, but I have some patience lol

BTW, that review... MY BAD! The wife has been making me take her driving around Hawaii so she can learn for next week when her friend comes by and she is gonna tour them around.
Back on track with 5/3/1 but I've been doing a lot of Superset/drop sets in the accessory stuff. Intersting thing I found was I get bored with something I tend to just automatically add more sets or exercises... I have seriously bad exercise ADD. And Not to mention when I do this it compounds... so usually I work out once a day no matter what... i'll go do oly lifts or supplementary lifts on off days. Now I have been doing those sessions in the AM and in the PM... And doing around 6 super/giant sets. Then doing cardio... haha. Man... I think I just need to find something that's gonna allow me to workout all the time...

Taste: It wasn't like amazingly good/sweet/like candy. But it didn't have any strange strong hints of some grainular substance that made me cringe when it braises my tongue so it was okay. Plus with the immediate mental clairty it was worth the shot of liquid.
Energy: Energy on this was definitely noticeable. I had to replace this with a 2 preworkouts just to get the same morning pick up. I would say that it was long lasting, but more than energy it brought my baseline energy levels up throughout the day. I only dosed it in the AM and never went above 1.5 scoops. Focus was definitely good. With or W/o a pre workout supp the focus and intensity I was able to bring to the gym was the same. Meaning I would take it alone and use a pre w/o just for the ergogenic effects of whatever was in the pre, and not for the energy or focus as it seemed, for me, to be maxed out with just Alphamine.
Fat loss: I must say it was good when I was dieting and watching the cals. When I went into bulk/strength gain mode it was harder to eat than it was now, my cravings weren't as bad, but it didn't prevent me from over eating. With a solid diet regime, this would be great. But it didn't match my goals half way into my cycle but it wasn't "wasted" as the energy boost I got was still worth it in my opinion.
Summary: I would definitely buy this again when I need to cut. This is probably the best non pill fat burner I have ever taken.
Currently have 2 bottles of Enhanced in the future so be ready for that log ;D

Quick health update:
After finding I have a Hiatal hernia I stopped eating so much at a single meal.
Since increasing my training volume though my need for carbs to keep my 1.5hr volume sessions up I have increased my carbs... sadly I think it sparked up my candida (or what seems to be symptoms of it). Unfortunately, I'm going to have to switch back to a lower carb/lower volume type work load for a little while.. which I absolutely hate.. I did 5/3/1 just the lifts before.. and it was so unfulfilling.... we shall see.
