    Dude if your not a competing power lifter there's nothing wrong with straps IMO. I use straps for almost everything

    That would have been an awesome edit! I need better straps...

  5. I actually have some I-Force ones from a sale they did a while ago with Hemavol, maybe I should use them. This is an I-Force log after all!

    One thing I did to improve my grip was grab a 45 lb plate from an edge in one hand and walk around the gym for 1 minute then switch hands. Do 3 sets of that and your forearms and fingers will be on fire. Work that into your routine I guarantee it will improve your grip. A kettle works too.

    It's so easy to make! Grilling some homemade souvlaki now as a matter of fact! Doing breakfast for dinner: protein-packed pancakes, omelettes, sausage, home fries, and the chicken.

    Glad to have you on board diva! Today was an off day but back at it tomorrow. No hardcore DOMS on these products yet, just enough soreness to know I worked hard!

    Here's the update:

    Spent today's workout doing my physical therapy for my shoulders as well as some arm workouts. Had unfettered access to the cable machines today so I hogged them.

    Music: "****ing Hostile" - Pantera, "Fistf***ing God's Planet" - Marduk

    External cable rotations 20lbs x 8,8,7 45 sec rest

    "Guilty as Charged" - Criminal Element

    Internal cable rotations 20 lbs x 8,8,8

    "Living Monstrosity" - Death, "Sothis" - Vader

    Cable bicep curls 120lbs x 8,7,6,5 50 sec rest

    "4th Arra of Dagon" - Nile

    Reverse grip bicep cable curls 80lbs x 8,8,7,6

    "Rattlehead" - Megadeth

    Single arm tricep extension(throwing motion) 60lbs x 8,7,6 30 sec rest after both arms used

    "Stronger Than Hate" - Sepultura

    Farmer's walks 65 lbs x 2 trips across gym

    "Blood Fire Death" - Bathory

    Single arm ripcord rows 65 lbs x 8,7,6,5

    Had a great, full pump throughout, even with the lower weights used to rehab my shoulders at the beginning of the workout. Biceps felt tight and a little painful even during the cable curls. Had a sudden surge of energy during the ripcords, thanks to the Compete and also the epicness of the Bathory song!

  17. Today was quads / lats:

    Music: "Buried by Time and Dust" - Mayhem, "Sex and Outrage" - Motorhead, "Peace Sells" - Megadeth, "Just Cos You Got the Power (live)" - Motorhead

    Smith machine squats / lat pulls, 90 sec rest

    270x10 / 195x10
    270x9 / 195x10
    270x9 / 195x10
    270x8 / 195x10
    270x7 / 195x10

    --Nagging tightness behind my left knee...pushed myself to get through it though. I'm gonna have to up the weight on the lat pulls; no way the 5th set should be the same # of reps as the first

    "Decade of Therion (live)" - Behemoth, "Blades for Baal" - Morbid Angel, "Blood and Thunder" - Mastodon, "Flexing Muscles" - Entombed

    Goblet squats / pullups 90 sec rest
    60 x 13 / 15
    60 x 12 / 13
    60 x 11 / 12
    60 x 11 / 12
    60 x 10 / 11

    Exhausted (again) but that's the goal of these workouts. The supps are keeping me nice and swole, maybe a bit tight with all the blood pump. Compete is also helping me train to failure, so when I say I'm exhausted, it's because I can go that extra rep or keep that weight the same without dropping it.

  27. Just got done doing my weekly "rehab" workout; lots of shoulder and scapula work. Pull-ups, push-ups, flying push-ups, Swiss ball flies, rows, cable internal/external movements, etc. Whole upper body was thick and pumped. Shoulders looked like balloons and was getting some looks from some of the ladies in the gym...probably because besides m there were a bunch of 60 year old weirdos in there today also.

    Getting your geriatric on I see! Great work brother.

  29. So some PRs today with weight; no DOMS to worry about and training as hard and long as I can before I pass out. This stack is definitely letting me push myself!

    Stiff-legged deadlifts @ 255 and Seated bench press @ 255
    Music: "I'm the Doctor" - Motorhead, "Pain Divine" - Morbid Angel, "Rapture" - Morbid Angel
    7 dls, 10 presses, 6/10, 6/9, 5/8, 5/7
    --loss of grip strength only thing holding me back on the deadlifts

    Hex bar deadlifts @ 245 / Bosu Pushups
    Music: "Kill Again" - Slayer, "Praise of Death" -Slayer, "The Calling" - Vader, "Just One Fix" - Ministry
    7 dls, 15 pushups, 6/15, 6/15, 5/15, 5/15

    Pouring sweat, racing heartbeat, whole body workout and constantly pushing more weight. Swollen as heck and ready to go the next day. The stack is definitely doing its job! Still doing 1.5 scoops Hemavol per workout.

  31. Last time I had my squat day the back of my left knee felt a bit wonky, so I decided to switch up my quad routine a bit today.

    Did walking twisting barbell lunges @ 100 lbs, 5 steps forward each leg, 5 back. Then 4,4 and 4,4.

    Goblet squats @ 70lbs:
    12, 12, 11, 10, 8

    Seated leg press strip sets:
    450 x 10, 350 x 8
    450 x 9, 350 x 7
    450 x 8, 350 x 7
    450 x 7, 350 x 6

    No music playing today. Was hard enough working around all the idiot students standing around in the weight room. Almost decapitated a few with the walking barbell lunges. They must have thought I had eyes in the back of my head when I did my reverses. Felt good to stretch the legs a bit more and work some new range of motion. Legs were very full and thick from the work and the Hemavol.

    It does make walking around a bit more difficult, but if I'm taking Hemavol to force nutrients / water / etc into my muscles, and I plan on tearing up my legs with a hard workout, it makes sense to! I think a lot of users like Hemavol for the aesthetic pump and look for chest / arms but I think it's vital to helping the legs grow and recover as well.

    BTW regarding recovery, no major DOMS issues which I attribute to the addition of Compete!

    getting rid of DOMs = win!

  40. Used my handy I-Force lifting straps today for the first time. Even gave traditional deadlifts another shot today after I swore off them previously in another log of mine. Boy did those straps come in handy!

    Deadlifts: 205 x 8, 275 x 6 305 x 3 (PR),3,3 (couldn't break past this plateau!) 255 x 6
    Stiff-legged deadlifts 205 x 8,8,7,6,5

    Today was just a strict hamstring / deadlift day to get accustomed to the wraps and the correct motions. Still got in over a good half hour of exercise, so I'm happy with that. Will probably either do chest at the gym tomorrow or my shoulder rehab day, what with a Sabres afternoon game on Sunday and the Super Bowl after that.

    Continuing my 1.5 scoops pre of Hemavol, and a scoop pre and intra of Compete. Tasty and effective!
