Okay, hit the gym today it was a hell of a workout, I did all new exercises today other than leg extensions. I mean I have done these before but they have been out of the rotation for a bit so CNS was far from efficient at them. Diet has been very low carb and high protein moderate fats for the past week and today I am carbing up. Goal is to approach 300 grams, nothing major. I dropped back down this week and lost another 1.5 lbs down to 209, but very depleted. I felt pretty week today so this carb up could not have come at a better time. Of course I have to consider that I was doing new exercises so things would not be as high as normal but the low calories and carbohydrates also played a large part in my performance today.
Starting Monday I kick of my 1-Alpha and 550-XD run and things should really pick up. Once I do that it will be a little higher carbs than lately but not extreme and have some small refeeds twice a week or when I see fit. I will put up some pics of me Monday or Tuesday and use them as my before pics for the run. I am expecting to add my mass back pretty quickly once I actually have some androgenic / anabolic hormones in my system. My testosterone levels have felt completely sub par ever since I stopped my last run and I really think I would balloon back up as soon as I have some hormones coursing through my veins. I am very excited to get started just holding off so I can get bloods that verify my levels are not back up to a mid level normal. I am probably in the "normal range" IE 300-800 but I really don't even think I am up to 500 which is about what a 50-60 year old would be at. Not okay with me...
So todays workout was a back biceps and legs workout.
Wide Grip Lat Pull, 120x12, 150x12, 180x8
Neutral Grip High Cable Row - 180x10, 180x8
EZ Bar Curls 75x12, 85x12, 95x8, 85x8
Leg Extension 150x12, 210x12, 250x8
Wide Stance Squats - 155x12, 265x8, 275x8, 285x8
Holy crap the wide stance squats took over 100 lbs off of my squat. I understand power lifters use this stance a lot but I guess you have to really get used to it first so I will work at it a bit. See how I like them, or should I say if they seem to benefit me in the way I need them too.
