    Glad you are feeling better man. I love the food you eat...I may have to steal some of the combos and stuff you buy (but eat smaller portions for myself ).

    Thanks man. Although I'm feeling a little nauseous at the moment after drinking lemon juice in a glass of hot water. I decided to try JM's liver detox as well. I'm not sure if you have trader Joes in your area, but that's where I always get the majority of my food.

    I actually had a Trader Joes run today. I buy quite a bit from there when I get a chance even though it isn't real close.

    I'd take a little road trip if I had to as well. Luckily the last couple places I've lived had one close by. I actually have to drive by it on the way to my new gym, which is very convenient.

    After mentioning that you like my food choices/meals I was thinking that I might put together a thread with a bunch of different meal options and recipes. I'll try to piece something together over the next few weeks/month.



    I made it to the gym today, but my workout numbers are in my car (didn't record them on my phone today), it's late, and it's freezing. That being said, I'll have a full update posted tomorrow. My gym performance was decent, considering I've been sick.

    Yeah, you should haha. There's quite a few around here, but I'm not sure if they're in every state.

    No problem man. I figured it would be decent idea. I'll start jotting some stuff down and taking pictures of all the crap I eat lol.

    Hopefully the stomach issues are clearing up; always a pain when something beyond immediate control interferes with the gym/ life. But whats a few days in the large scale of things; in any case you'll be back to killin' it as always.

    Thanks Jiigzz. It definitely sucks having any unexpected setbacks, but you're right, and it could've been a lot worse. My progress might've been slowed for a couple weeks, but I still have plenty of time to make up some ground. I'm thinking about extending my V-1 run for a third month and might add something else at that point as well.

    Day 26 (yesterday)

    Here's a breakdown of yesterday's supplementation and workout.

    Supplementation

    VERSA-1: 1 cap 45mins pre workout


    Compound 20: 2 caps 1 hour pre workout, 2 caps 8 hours later


    Forskolin-95: 1 cap morning, 1 cap pre workout, 1 cap afternoon, 1 cap pre bed (100mg total)


    Pre workout mix: 2 scoops Craze/100mg caffeine/3 scoops Core ABC


    ALCAR-500: 2g 45mins pre workout


    Modern BCAA: 2 scoops intra workout


    Agmatine 500: 1 cap morning (about 45mins before breakfast), 2 caps 30mins pre workout


    As shown above, I started using the Agmatine 500 from the IC deal. My arms had a serious pump not long into my workout, which was greater than what I've been experiencing without it. I'm unsure exactly how I'll be using it going forward, but will take it daily. I was happy with my gym performance, especially for not feeling 100%. Focus was strong and strength was decent, but energy was down slightly.


    EZ Bar Reverse Curls (10sec rest)
    2 warm-up x10
    60x10
    60x10
    60x10
    60x10

    -I ran out of gas at 8 reps on the final set last week.


    Rope Pushdowns (10sec rest/2sec squeeze)
    120x10
    110x10
    100x10
    90x8
    70x9

    -added a set/ target was 10 reps on all sets


    HS Preacher Curl (single arm/flex at peak contraction)
    45x12
    55x12 (6 flex at peak/6 assisted)
    60x12 ("/")

    HS Seated Dip (3sec negative)
    270x8
    270x8
    270x8
    300x5 (5sec negative)


    Incline Concentration Curls (face down on incline bench/hard squeeze)
    20x10
    25x8
    25x8

    -bicep stretch between sets


    L-Extensions (incline bench)
    20x15
    25x15
    25x15
    30x8




    Day 27

    Today was a planned day off from the gym. I got a good amount of sleep last night and am feeling pretty good. I'll probably stop taking the antibiotics after tomorrow, as all stomach pain has been gone for a few days. I'm pretty excited to get back at full health and kill the rest of my run.

    I still haven't checked my weight, but I feel like it could be down slightly. However, my appearance has definitely tightened up a little over the last few days and my stomach issue could've had me holding some extra weight (it certainly looked like it).

    After being gluten free for the last few days, I'm feeling pretty light on my feet and free of any bloating. Obviously with my stomach issue clearing up simultaneously, I can't really contribute it to my diet at this point. Hopefully, the trend continues going forward.



    Snack from this afternoon
    Name:  1359250104952.jpg
Views: 91
Size:  179.5 KB
    6oz sliced roast turkey breast, uncured peppered turkey bacon pieces, sliced onion, and red leaf lettuce on a brown rice wrap

    Very tasty.



    I'll be in the gym tomorrow for a leg workout.

    Thanks man. I hadn't either until last week, but they're awesome. I actually have legit bicep DOMS for the second week in a row after years without it (not that DOMS necessarily equals a solid workout). I don't know to what extent the concentration curls added to it, but I'm sure they helped.

    Here's a video for reference:

    That wrap looks good. Get yourself a temperature controlled container and ship a few down here to NJ.

    Also waiting for Breezy's diet e-book. Make sure you include few things under 700 calories for us metabolism challenged.

    Full mountain dog back workout today. Can't wait !

    Would definitely appreciate a Breezy food log/suggestion thread.

    Just thought I'd say I popped my first Versa-1 today...it has begun.

    Haha. I'll have it flown in this afternoon.

    Will do...leftovers are always nice too.

    Should be fun, good luck. I'm about to murder my legs.

    At this point I'm just trying to remember to take pictures of my food. I'll post something up when I get a decent variety of food options to start with. I'm heading back to trader Joes today. I greatly underestimated what I thought would last a week...and apparently how long I was sick for. I feel better than I have all month.

    Awesome man. I'm very interested in what you think.

    Holy thermogenesis. It's 30 degrees out and I had to crack the window on the ride to the gym. I'm gonna need to carry a mop around during my workout.

    Edit: No running water or bathroom use at the gym today. This is going to be rough. Luckily my shaker was half full and I had $1 to buy a small water ($10 minimum for credit purchases).

    Day 28

    I woke up feeling a lot better than I have in a while. My energy was up and I was just feeling great overall. Based on today, I think I might've been a little under the weather for the majority of the last month. Either way, it's good to be back.

    I weighed 215.5lbs (+1.5lbs from day 1) this morning. I'll take it considering what I've been dealing with. I don't see any added fat compared to day 1 and I'm looking leaner if anything.



    Supplementation

    VERSA-1: 1 cap 45mins pre workout


    Compound 20: 2 caps 1 hour pre workout, 2 caps 8 hours later


    Forskolin-95: 1 cap morning, 1 cap pre workout, 1 cap afternoon, 1 cap pre bed (100mg total)


    Pre workout mix: 2 scoops Craze/100mg caffeine/2 scoops Protocol V2


    ALCAR-500: 2g 45mins pre workout


    Modern BCAA: 2 scoops intra workout


    Agmatine 500: 1 cap morning (before breakfast), 1 cap post workout (before shake)


    Today's workout was awesome. The thermo effect and focus both hit strong on the way to the gym and I was ready to go. Strength was up quite a bit (last leg day was when my fever first hit) and on some exercises by a surprising amount. I was in a fantastic mood, which has only gotten better since my workout.

    Seated Leg Curl
    2 warm-up x20
    120x14
    140x12
    150x10
    90x35

    -added 10lbs on 2 sets/hit all target reps


    Leg Press (constant tension/no lockout)
    2 warm-up x8-10
    630x16
    680x16
    720x16 (2 reps hand assisted)

    -This was a pleasant surprise. Last week I finished with 630x15 with 2 assisted reps...apparently I'm feeling better lol.


    Hack Squat (pause in hole/no lockout)
    1 warm-up x8
    270x8
    320x10
    320x10

    -last week all sets 270x8


    Stretching
    1min per quad


    Smith Squat (sets 1+2: ATG/set 3+4: 1.5 technique)
    200x8 (20lbs bar resistance+4 plates)
    250x8
    200x8
    180x8

    -I failed at 200x7 on the 1.5 set last week. This week I hit my target, waited a minute, dropped weight, and did it again. I only planned on 3 sets, but apparently didn't press record on my first 1.5 set...I was pissed, so I did it again lol. Video coming shortly.


    Stretching
    1min per quad


    DB Stiff Deads
    60x12
    65x12
    70x6

    -I had to stop at 6 reps on the final set because I was literally going to throw up on the next rep.

    I added jasmine rice to the combo I had a couple days ago and it was a good move. I think I'll drop an egg on that b*tch next time. I eat more than wraps too.



    Tomorrow I'll be back in the gym for a shoulder workout and I can't wait

    Welcome bud! Thanks for stopping by. Lucky for me, I've always loved leg day and thoroughly enjoy the torture haha. I hear ya with sweating; this training brings it on like no other. I don't know how you pull cardio off because I literally struggle just to walk out of the gym. I'll be sure to let you know when I get a thread started.

    Breezy,

    One thing about mountain dog back training...... Because I have been doing a lot of machine work, I don't have the grip strength to fully max out on my lifts. My grip started to give out during dead stop rows and heavy partial pulldowns. I know I could have lifted lot more weight than I ended up lifting. I was physically tired, but did not get that pump. My lats are a little sore this morning. I will know more tomorrow. DOMS usually hits me on the second day.

    Thanks bud. I wish I'd went lower on a few reps. I'd never seen myself perform any squat variation on video before and it's nice to see what I can improve (even though it's just Smith squats). I don't normally do any hip mobility work.

    To add to what cheda said; you might want to try towel pull ups and farmers walks. I believe bolt gave me this advice a while ago. However, you could always use straps. I keep them in my gym bag so I can bring them out for certain exercises.

    As breezy said I am a big fan of farmers walks and towel pull ups. Or if you have some fat grips put those things on anything and it'll help. Idk what kind of gym you have but if you have Olympic lifting plates that are thick you can use those for farmers walks. The weight isn't heavy but even 35 or 45s demolish my grip and are my go to to add grip strength when I need to.

    Day 29

    I just had some micro (fruit punch), AP, and probiotics arrive and I'm pretty excited. These will all be a part of my supplementation going forward. I've only had the chance to sample micro a few times, but I loved it, and think it'll be a solid pre workout combo with Versa-1. Gut Health has been a staple of mine, but I finished my stash at the worst possible time. I decided to grab some probiotics for when I stopped the antibiotics, which I took for the last time this morning...time to replace some good bacteria.

    I've also got a tub of Test Powder that's begging me to be cracked open. I'm not quite sure what I'll do about that yet. Any thoughts?

    I have heard TP causing some GI issues in some logs I've read.

    I just started using micro the other day, phenomenal pre IMO. Great taste as well

    Thanks for the feedback bean. I've actually been through a few tubs of Test Powder (with no GI issues) and love the stuff. It's my favorite DAA based supp and one of my overall favorites as well...that's why I'm dying to start it lol.


    I liked the samples I've had, but am really looking forward to getting a better feel for it. I was gonna take tomorrow off, but I don't want to wait to give micro a go.

    Basically what I heard from bolt, cheda and breezy was.....stop being a p*ssy and work on your grip strength. Haha.

    Actually, I am starting to feel a bit of DOMs right now so the workout yesterday was effective.

    I will add on some grip work based on exercises you guys gave recommended and look to get some straps.

    Thanks for the advice !
