    Lol. You make a good point fumoney. I won't put much effort into setting anything up, but if I see a good opportunity I'll give it a shot.

  2. Day 16

    My daily energy has been great so far this week. However, Iím not sure if supplementation has a part in how Iím feeling yet. With my activity level down considerably, I would think I'd have more energy anyway. It was consistently up during my first V-1 run, so Iíll be looking to see if it continues once again.

    My weight is continuing to make a steady climb, as I stepped on the scale at 216lbs (+2lbs from day 1). I donít believe Iíve added any fat and have probably lost a small amount if anything. If I was holding any water, I hopefully took care of it today. I had my first ever experience sitting in the steam room after my workout and I was sweating buckets. I couldnít believe how ridiculously hot it was in there, but I felt pretty relaxed once I got out.



    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/3 scoops Core ABC


    ALCAR-500: 2g 45mins pre workout


    Modern BCAA: 2 scoops intra workout



    My workout went great and I was happy with what I accomplished. Iíve been enjoying the change of pace from my usual ďheavyĒ lifting and putting more emphasis on the mind-muscle connection (not that I didnít before). The added focus and mental clarity from Versa-1 has been a nice help with making the transition. However, it was amazing with my previous training as well, when I was more focused on strength gains (strength went way up). I think itís pretty cool that Iím getting to experience how it can benefit different training styles.

    Something that stood out about todayís workout was the crazy amount of sweating going on. It was at a level that I would normally see while doing a good amount of cardio.

  3. drumroll please...my video debut



    It wasn't the same T-bar that I've been using, but it seemed to go pretty well. I've been changing my positioning, trying to get the most out of these, and they felt pretty effective today.

  4. ive never even seen that before. ill keep that in mind when the DB section is full of guys doing 70 pound half curls/back swayers while looking in the mirror grunting

  5. The angle isn't the best for seeing my actual form, but you can get an idea. I feel like I was leaning back more in the contracted position than it shows. I tried to maximize the stretch, which I took a little too far on a few reps. The following sets were better, but I didn't feel like filming anymore (I swear lol).





    I'll probably incorporate more videos into my log since it was pretty easy to set up. My phone records from both sides so I can actually see what's in view when I place it down.

    Lol. They're pretty awesome once you get the hang of them. They hit the entire lat really well. John Meadows has a bunch of interesting exercises you can check out. I'll try to keep making videos of some of the more interesting stuff.

    Use straps if you try these.

    Nice. I'll have to give those a shot. The stretch feels amazing. It actually cracked my back today on the first few reps...loosened me right up.

    I forgot you were dealing with back trouble. I've had sciatica issues, but it doesn't affect me unless it's aggravated (which happens from random stuff like tying my shoe lol). I usually can't crack my back on my own anymore. Leaning back over seats (with a back) used to work like a charm...the school desks were the best.

    Thanks DW. Those look awesome and I'll probably try them next week. I think I might alternate a few different exercises during phase 2.

    Have you tried finishing with deads yet? I can't decide if I'll be saving them for phase 3.

    Rack deads, it was brutal. It was only 1 workout and I'm going to put them in phase 3. I had a hard time holding form bc I was gas'd

    Yeah, that's why I was hesitant to use them with the higher volume. If I'm feeling crazy I might try some really light ones sometime in the next few weeks.

  17. Day 18

    My internet hasn't been working well all week and I haven't been able to use it at all the last 2 days. Someone should be coming by to fix it tomorrow, but until then my updates won't be quite as detailed.

    Yesterday was an off day and there wasn't much to report. I got some rest and felt fully recovered from my workouts by the day's end.


    I weighed in at 216.6lbs (+2.6lbs from day 1) this morning. I suppose I could have been holding a little water from my day off, but my appearance didn't show much evidence of it. So far I'm happy with the way things are progressing.



    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


    Today's workout felt awesome. My chest routine has changed completely, and I loved the new exercises that were implemented. My focus/mm connection were high and my chest had nothing left to give when my last set was complete. I'm not entirely sure, but I think the extra caffeine taken pre workout could have added to my focus.

    DB Incline Press (stretch at bottom/squeeze at top)
    60x8
    70x8
    80x8
    90x8

    -started too light


    Smith Decline Press (75% lockout)
    110x25
    140x20
    190x12
    drop 150x fail (when form starts to break)
    drop 110x fail (wide grip)

    -I had no idea where to start and went too light for the target reps on first 2 sets. 3rd set was closer to what I was looking for...still rocked my chest though lol.


    BB Flat Bench (2sec pause on chest/explode up)
    155x6
    175x6
    195x6

    -humbling

    Pec Minor Dips
    BWx fail
    BW+25x fail
    BW+45x fail

    -First time trying these and they brought on a serious chest pump. I filmed my final set, but my phone (YouTube app) isn't letting me upload it without WiFi (file too large).


    I'll be heading to the gym for an arm workout tomorrow. The volume is starting to increase and I'm pretty excited about it.

  18. Day 19
    (yesterday)

    I held off updating in hopes of getting my internet fixed...no one showed up and I'm actually going to switch providers.


    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


    I was very happy with yesterday's workout. Strength and focus were good, and I woke up today feeling something that I haven't experienced in years...legit bicep DOMS. I rarely can ever tell that I worked my biceps the day prior, but currently that's not the case. It doesn't necessarily mean that I had a solid workout, but I'll take it as a sign that my biceps were hit in a way they weren't accustomed to...it's like I'm 14 again lol.


    EZ Bar Reverse Curls (10sec rest)
    2 warm-up x10
    60x10
    60x10
    60x10
    60x8

    -Started easy and became brutal towards the end. I'm hoping to complete 4 sets of 10 next week (will eventually be 5).


    Rope Pushdowns (10sec rest/2sec squeeze)
    130x10
    120x10
    110x10
    100x8

    -target was 10 reps on all sets


    HS Preacher Curl (single arm/flex at peak contraction)
    50x12
    60x12 (6 flex at peak/6 assisted)
    60x12 ("/")

    HS Seated Dip (3sec negative)
    270x8
    270x8
    270x8
    320x5 (5sec negative)

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

    -bicep stretch between sets


    L-Extensions (incline bench)
    20x15
    25x15
    25x15
    25x13





    Day 20

    Today's an off day from the gym. I had my usual cap of Versa-1 with Focus XT to get things started.

    Compound 20 (2 caps) was taken this morning on an empty stomach and will be taken again shortly with a meal.

    Forskolin-95 is being taken throughout the day on a somewhat empty stomach and at least 30 mins prior to eating. I'll be finishing my first bottle tonight and might bump up the dose to 125mg tomorrow (3 bottles/180 caps left).



    I didn't weigh-in today and plan on doing it tomorrow. I'm happy with my appearance currently, but feel I could make some diet adjustments to improve my results. I haven't been eating very well this week (restaurants /couple birthday parties) and plan on keeping my diet strict after tomorrow...might go to the football game, and if not, I won't be eating the best food while watching it.

  24. Day 21

    I woke up feeling great after my day off and ready for tough day in the gym.

    I weighed 216lbs (+2lbs from day 1) this morning. I was a little bloated yesterday, but that looks to be clearing up. Vascularity was improved and a couple lower abdomen veins were more apparent than the day prior. As I mentioned yesterday; I'll be putting more focus on keeping my diet strict after slipping a little this week.



    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


    Today's workout was the most challenging I've had during my run. I better get used to it, as the volume will only increase over the next 6 weeks. Overall I was happy with what I accomplished and am looking forward to making improvements with everything next week.

    Seated Leg Curl
    2 warm-up x20
    120x15
    130x12
    140x10
    90x35

    -I didn't expect to pull the last set off, but was glad I did.


    Leg Press (constant tension/no lockout)
    2 warm-up x8-10
    630x16
    630x16 (2 reps hand assisted)
    630x15 (2 reps hand assisted)


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


    Stretching
    1min per quad (much needed break)


    Smith Squat (sets 1+2: ATG/set 3: 1.5 technique)
    200x8 (20lbs bar resistance+4 plates)
    250x8
    200x7

    -The 1.5 technique: 1 rep=all the way down, half way up, back down, all the way up

    -I was going for 8 reps, but my legs were shot at this point. I have a video that I'll upload when I get my internet back (phone won't let me).


    Stretching
    1min per quad


    DB Stiff Deads
    60x12
    60x12
    60x12


    Tomorrow I'll be back in the gym for a shoulder workout.

  25. Day 22

    Well, last night was a horrible experience. I felt a little "off" a couple hours after the gym and by 8pm had developed a high fever along with sharp abdominal pain. I basically had to curl up in a ball and hope that I would eventually fall asleep. I'm just waking up now and feel a lot better, but not 100%. I hope it was just something I ate, because the last time I felt like that I ended up in the hospital for over a week. I'm going to allow myself to wake up some more, have some food, and might even make it to the gym if all goes well.
