    Monday 25MAR13

    PreWorkout: 1 Scoop Prodigy, 1 cap Paragon

    Intra: 1 Scoop Gatorade, 2 Scoop MBCAA

    Incline Bench: 1xF
    175x6.5 (Piss Poor, first time my training partner has beaten me on Incline Bench *See Notes* )

    CS RD Row: 1xF
    55x14 (PR)

    a1. WG Cable Row: 2x10 // 130x10, 140x10
    a2. DB Press w/ Bridge: 2x8 // 80x8, 85x7 (PR, although ROM was a little shorter than I wanted, about the ROM I would have with BB though.)

    Complex

    Face Pulls: 3x12 // 110x12, 120x12, 140x12
    Lying Tri Ext: 3x12 // 25x12x2, 35x10 (PR)
    Ext. Shoulder Rot.: 3x12 // 10x12, 20x12x2
    Cable Crunch: 3x12 // 110x12, 130x12, 150x7 +2 (PR)

    This workout was killer, we were moving through the exercises and the weights felt light. The only thing to mention is my piss poor Incline Bench performance. Looking at the numbers it would lead you to believe I had an off day with it, but it was actually a much better set than most. I had a much tighter arch, and was bringing it lower (which takes a lot of strain off of my shoulders), my shoulders are my stronger pressing muscle (or so it would seem). So changing my technique so drastically (hand grip, tuck, and arch) affected my numbers. Although, it was a very productive session, I will take away a lot from this change, and hopefully see some good improvement with my Flat Bench numbers.

    Will be going for 345 (or more even) tomorrow for TBar Deadlift, will try for another video, might push for 15 Reps with it if possible!

    Seeing a lot of vascularity up and down my arms, extremely noticeable when doing the shoulder rotations (mostly because I am right in front of a mirror). Definitely enjoying this aspect of Paragon/Prodigy. This is my last week of this training wave, and possibly of the log (I'm running low), so we'll see how I did when we compare the numbers here pretty soon!

    Its still there, but not nearly as severe. It doesn't hurt my back coughing so hard anymore, more of an annoyance now.

    It was a ton of effort lol.

    Having some congestion or something today. It's like my right ear is clogged, and it's fairly painful. Can't really hear out of it either.

    May just be allergies, I'm gonna take some Zyrtec tomorrow and see what that does. Anyone have any ideas?

    Had a great workout today. Will edit this with the video link after I post it.

    Monday 25Mar13

    Pre: 1 Scoop Prodigy, 1 cap Paragon

    Intra: 1 Scoop Gatorade Powder, 2 Scoop MBCAA

    TBar DL: 1xF
    345x14 (Strap) (PR)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gO21...e_gdata_player

    Good Morning: 1xF
    205x12

    a1. DB RDL: 2x10 // 35x10x2
    a2. RFE Split Squat: 2x8 // 80x8, 90x8

    Complex
    BB Bridge: 3x12 // 135x12, 155x12, 185x12 (hold at the top)
    Prone March: 3x15 // BWx12x3 (thought it was sets of 12, until I wrote them down at the end....)
    Monster Walk: 3x12 // N/A (No Bands)
    SB Roll Out: 3x12 // BWx12x2, BWx10


    Supplement Notes:
    Enjoying Prodigy at 1 scoop, I feel better with it dropped back to 1 than I did at 1.5. I think 1.5 is past the point of diminishing returns (stimulant wise) for me with this product. Good pick me up, can't say it's improving pump (no measuring stick) but I can say that my morning PT sessions (CF) don't give me as much pump as my later sessions with the Prodigy.

    Training Notes: Had a little soreness in my middle back. Which is a good sign that my arch was extreme (within reason obviously) during my session yesterday. The TBar Deads felt good, although I feel as if I could have done more. I didn't grab my back of chalk today so I had to use the straps that were in my car, even with them I was starting to lose the weight towards the end of the set (was just holding the straps with my fingers lol). Also, had a little bit more burn in the quads than I normally get from the deads, I'm thinking this has to do with my PT this morning (something like 250 air squats, it was dumb CF bs). Either way that is a solid rep PR for TBar deads. I probably could have handled more weight on the GMs as well, but I wanted to make sure I got that full stretch at the bottom. They also seem to be improving my arch for BP as I do them (I have some pretty good lumbar mobility) and keeping that tight arch (to where it actually cramps in my middle back during higher rep sets) has definitely made a difference.

    Sounds like an ear infection to me.
    Otherwise, good looking workout and you make those deads look easy.

    Good call. Went in today at 1300 and my right ear is infected, both were pretty clogged up but the TM in my right is black (it's supposed to be milky white). They didn't give me any antibiotics or anything, said it isn't that bad YET. Got some Motrin (surprise, surprise).


    Passed out after dinner yesterday and didn't post the workout. Had to get up ridiculously early for a ruck this morning so I just went to sleep. Also, weighed in after my workout (only because my friend did because we're both trying to gain) and was sitting at 170 flat; which is good news.

    Upper HT 2 27MAR13

    Pre: 1 Scoop Prodigy, 1 Cap Paragon

    Intra: 1 Scoop Gatorade, 2 scoop MBCAA


    Strict OHP- 135x7 (Rep PR) This actually was my 1RM in like January so that is some good progress

    Pull-Ups- BWx12 (I did Barbara the day before, which was 100 pullups so I will take 12)

    a1. Chinese Rows- 2x10 // 65x10, 80x10
    a2. 1/2 Kneel OHP- 2x8 // 50x8, 60x8 (This might be a PR)

    Complex

    Scapula Dips: 3x12 // +45x12, +90x12, +135x10 (these were rough)
    BB Curl: 3x15 // 50x15, 60x15, 70x11
    DB Ext. Rot.: 3x12 // 10x12, 12x12, 15x12
    Get-Ups: 3x3 // N/A (These have been bugging my knee recently)

    This one went by fast, it was a really good workout. Had some good PR's, it felt strong.


    Lower HT 2 28MAR13

    Did a 9.75 Mile Ruck March this morning, we did it in 2h10m. It was fast, lots of ruck running, which is terrible. It always kills my knee, it's been bugging me a lot since we started with EIB trainup and the longer rucks (mostly when we do the running, I do fine at a fast walk). My gooch is chafed from it as well, it's not very comfortable.

    Front Squat: 1xF
    235x8

    SG RDL: 1xF
    225x10

    a1. Split Squat: 2x10 // 110x10, 130x10 (PR)
    a2. Ham Curl on SB: 2x8 // BWx8x2

    Complex

    Pull Through: 3x12 // 120x12, 140x12, 150x12 (Whole stack, will have to find another pulley to do these on, they were easy)
    Side Bridge w/ ABD: 3x15 // BWx8x3 (cut volume on these because of the ruck this morning)
    Wall March: 3x12 // BWx6x3 (same as above)
    Prome March: 3x12 // BWx6x3 (same)

    This one went well too, good focus and strength (all things considered). I can't hear out of either ear right now, they cleaned them at the aid station so my good ear still feels like it's full of water or something. Besides that I don't really have much to add at this point.

    Sucks about the ear and the care. To be expected though.
    As always, puttin in good work. Keep killing it. And 170 isn't a bad number. Slowly but surely.
    Chafing is horrible. Get some diaper rash cream. Desenex works wonders and you should be fine by the morn if you apply it tonight. Another good one is "monkey butt", if you can find it. Prevention is easier and carrying Vaseline on rucks is a staple for me. Apply to friction areas (gooch, inner thighs, nipples) and add as necessary throughout the duration. I'd rather have blisters than chafing.

    Yeah, its more of a minor annoyance than anything. Although, it makes it hard to wake up in the morning when my alarm sounds muffled

    I'll have to run out tomorrow to get some of that, chafing blows! I've never tried anything to stop/treat it, always just suck it up (like a big dumb idiot).

    I will probably start bringing that with me on rucks.

    So many tricks that the old heads don't care to share. Pantyhose under your socks to prevent blisters, taping your nipples in the winter to prevent chafing, Vaseline on friction areas, putting a sleeping bag and pillow in your ruck instead of real weight. I could go on and on.

    Sleeping bag and pillow are staples for my light combat jumps lol!

    But outside of that my NCOs don't teach us sh!t.

    I never could understand why we do that at PT. We already run 3-4x a week, why turn a Ruck into a run too?

    I'm the same way. Realistically we wont run farther than a couple hundred meters as fast as possible.

    So why test a 2 mile? Retarded.

    Doesn't look like a bad gym though. I think my favorite gym was on Camp Lejeune, except for the jarheads shootin me looks. The AF gym here is just full of toolbags so I drive the extra half hour to my gym.

    Mine was the regiments gym out on benning. New power racks, minimal machines (but still some cool ones), pull up cage, prowlers, KBs, DBs, and new turf (all sporting the regimental crest).

    This one isn't bad, there are 2 like it on Bragg. This one is larger. All the weights are Olympic and in kg, which can be inconvenient.

    They have all kinds of cool bars though (SSB, Texas Bar, this one I don't know the name of, etc.)

    Got in today, the workout took about 1.5 hours. We were moving fast between the three of us, it was like being stomped repeatedly in the wiener.


    Pre: 1 Scoop Prodigy, 1 Cap Paragon

    Intra: 1 Scoop Gatorade, 2 Scoop MBCAA

    SP Load OHP: 03APR13

    Complex 1 (3x)

    1 Arm Vertical MB Throw: x5/arm // 12#x5x3
    Band Assist 3 way Hammie Stretch: x1x3sec/direction
    Med Ball Slam: x8 // 25#x8x3 (first one caught me in the chin on the way back up, lol)
    Bird Dogs: x4/limb // BWx4x3

    DE OHP- 6x3@95# (approx. 2-3 second eccentric with AFAP turnaround, I'm slow on these)
    Reactive Pull-ups: 3x3@BW (see notes)
    Standing 1 Arm DB OHP: 35#x15 sec@7% fatigue // total sets: 11 x 16reps (see notes)

    Complex 2 (3x)
    Croc Rows for Speed: x12 // 60x12, 70x12, 90x12
    Dynamic Side Bridge: x12 // BWx12x3
    Farmers Walk: x25Mx4 (100M total per set) // 80x100Mx3 (see notes)
    Hammer Curls: x10 // 25x10x3
    BB Roll Out: x10 // 88#x10, x4, x10 (see notes)


    Training Notes: Figured I better explain the reactive exercises and the 7% fatigue (which I think I touched on last update). The reactive exercises are performed as follows, start at top of motion (top of bar for Pull-Ups, top for SS, etc.), lower yourself a few inches and hold for 3-5 seconds, completely relax and drop to the bottom. Before hitting the bottom catch yourself and violently change directions as fast as humanly possible. For the timed sets at 7% fatigue the first set is done for 15 seconds doing as many as possible (for me 16 reps in 15 sec with 35# DB), rest 2 minutes between sets. Continue doing new sets until you can no longer perform that number of reps in 16.3 seconds or less (7% fatigue). For the farmers walks, it is written as 25Mx4; this means to walk 25M and turn around 4x for a total of 100M. I did this with no resets in during the set. The second set of rollouts were extremely painful, not in a good way. My core was cramping painfully and I wasn't sure I would be able to do anymore, tried it again for the 3rd set anyway and it went away (kind of). Hurts like hell whenever I cough, but totally worth it.

    Supplement Notes: Focus was good, attacked the weights today. Can't say strength was up because it is my first week doing SP loading, but I did hit some pretty good numbers on a few exercises today. We were moving literally as fast as we could from set to set. My OHP was slow (not really slow, but you know what I mean). The power is there for most exercises but OHP is not my forte lol.


    Pretty sure I am going to be sore tomorrow. The shoulders were feeling it on the single arm presses, we shall see tomorrow morning!

    Me and my buddy doing farmers walks. He's on this forum (although not a frequent poster) his handle is miniseth.

    I'm the skinny little bastard lol, it frustrates him that I lift as much (or more than he does). Except in Pullups and Flat Presses, he's got me there (little bastard lol)

    Went in earlier today for DE DL and accessory.

    The workout took a little too long because Seth had to keep urinating. (Like 3 different times, he's a little guy with a little bladder...)

    Pre: 1 Scoop Prodigy

    Intra: 1 Scoop Gatorade


    SP Load DL 05APR2013

    Complex 1 (3x)
    BR Dynamic Pull Through: x6 // Heavyx6x2, ExtraHeavyx6
    BR Hip Flexor Stretch: x5/leg // MDx5x3 (increasing tension each set)
    Keg Style OH Med Ball Throw: x5 // 30x5x3 (these are tons of fun)
    1 Leg Calf Drop: x5/leg // 70x5, 80x5, 90x5

    DE Deadlift: 6x3@180

    Reactive BB Bridge: 3x3 // 88x3, 110x3, 120x3
    Concentric Only GM: 4x5 // 88x5, 110x5, 132x5, 176x5 (Goal is 1 second or less)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfKzbtA9FwY

    Complex 2 (3x)
    BR Hip Ext: x10 // MDx10x2, Heavyx10
    Prone Bridge KB Switch: x8 // 18#x8x3
    Turkish Get Up: x3 // 44#x3x3
    BR Monster Walks: 12 forward, 12 back // Minix24x3 (double wrapped)

    The workout went well, got video of most of the sets of DL. I feel that my speed was good (granted this is week 1), hopefully I can keep that speed as the weight increases the next few weeks. Not much to add besides that.

    Gonna get the last few updates from this weekend. This will be my last update for this log, final review to follow soon. Took all of the measurements this morning, haven't compared them yet.

    06APR2013 SP LD Bench

    Complex 1 (3x)
    Kneel. Med ball Chest Pass- x6 // 20#x6x3
    Depressed Scap. Band Pulldown- x8 // MDx8, HYx8x2

    DE Bench Press- 6x3@115# (3 different grips)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEiC7...ature=youtu.be
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gC_Wc...ature=youtu.be
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJsMB...ature=youtu.be

    Reactive Supine Row- 4x5 // BWx5x4

    Notes: Good focus, worked up a hell of a sweat. Completely smoked myself with these complexes. Worked on my grips for the Bench, trying to figure out what is the most comfortable for me, had a little bit of RC pain before starting.

    All measurements were relaxed, pictures as well. Taken in a fasted state this morning, haven't looked at a side by side but I'm pleased with the measurements. A little bit of an increase in waist size, that could be from an error in measuring the first/second time. But with a 5lb gain in the last 8 weeks I am OK with a little bit of fat gain. It doesn't seem to be much anyway, so I assume they were mostly lean gains. This log has had it's ups and downs (with field training etc.) but overall I made good progress, I am not maxing but when I did max (4-5 weeks ago) I made improvements in all of my lifts (except BP, don't think I made much there). I am going to put up a review here in the next couple of days, will take some time to assess what all I noticed and collect all of my thoughts and assess my progress.
    Great job JimBro!

    if prostate is good it could be kidneys making too much urine...might be a good idea to get it checked out...

    Seeing some good progress in delts, traps, upper back, and abs, man. All the musculature for an improved bench has been added, you'll put it together.

    I always seem to make most of my progress on my backside (glutes, mid back, upper back, etc.) Too bad that chest doesn't like to grow (oh well, a problem for another log I guess)

    Thanks buddy. Its a practice thing I think, not enough time with maximal weights. Like all things, it will get better with time!

    Hoping to smoke 315+ by the end of 2013.

    Certainly. I can tell you I panicked bringing 390 to my chest. The #1 thing that will make you stronger is time under the bar. 315 is a monstrous bench for a 170lb guy.
