    Yoga class really humbled me. I tend to think I have good balance and I try to stretch as often as I could. Last night I was wobbling(sp) when standing on one leg, loosing my balance for random poses we had to hold and I felt things stretch that I haven't felt stretch in a very long time. It was to a point where I thought I might have been stretching my legs to a point that I almost felt a minor pump. With yoga being on a Wednesday and Tuesday being my back day the stretching of my back felt amazing. Significant feeling of lat stretch and lower back stretching really felt refreshing.

  4. Thursday: Legs

    Legs: Sissy Squats: 3 sets x 10
    Squat: 5 sets (compound)
    SLDL: 4 sets
    Seated Calf Raises: 5 sets, last set was triple drop set
    Leg Extensions: 4 sets (did them seated forward and chest in the air to shorten the quad muscle rather than sitting back)
    Lieing Leg Curls: 2 sets

    Pumps: Really solid, during the second set of the squats I really felt my upper legs explode. They seem to really pump during the set and right after but die down after about a minute. The calves were really popping during the raises and the muscle contraction was crazy. The SLDL were also pretty crazy in terms of muscle contractions.

    Strength: It was up and down...mostly up. The squats weren't where I would have wanted them to be but I had to use the bad squat rack where I'm in the middle of two heights on the rack so I have to almost shrug the bar over the the clasps. Other than that my strength was on point and I felt fresh the whole time.

    Libido: Was super high last night, it was difficult to control myself. WOW! I had a one track mind last night once I got home.

    Acne: Started seeing my first signs of acne. Not bad break out or anything, just a little guy and I don't usually break out too bad. (knock on wood)

    Note: My bottle was on my dresser and my g/f asked what it was so I told her what it was. Yesterday she said "your arms look like they are getting a lot bigger since you started that "stuff" ". I have been eating more but I always love when someone who sees me everyday notices changes in my body, because then you know it's noticeable over the person you see once every six months.

  5. Friday: Off Day

    Def need this day off. I'm sore all over and feel worn out from the long week. My neck is hurting this morning so a nice relaxing night is in the works for me hopefully.

    Also gotta get on the foam roller for sure since I missed it this week.

  6. Saturday: Shoulders

    Shoulders: DB side raises: 5 sets
    BB Wide grip high row 4 sets
    Plate loaded real delt fly supersetted w/ plate loaded press 4 sets
    Cable side raises supersetted w/ rear delt cable fly 3 sets

    Kind of wanted to change it up a bit and really hit the middle and rear delts.

    Pumps: Actually nothing special, kind of odd considering I usually always get pumps during side raises but maybe because I did them so early in the workout. Other than that didn't get a big pump or tight pump. Did notice a nice little bit of roundness overall in my shoulders though. Maybe I just wasn't able to connect with the pumps, not sure.

    Vascularity: The veins in my shoulders continue to be easier to see. They aren't really growing in length but seem to be sticking out a bit more and more which is cool.

    Strength: Really good for side raises and high rows. Maybe because I did them so early in my workout while I was totally fresh but I was happy with the weight I was pushing. Even the rear delt flys were solid in terms of weight.

    I left the gym thinking I wasn't totally into my workout and didn't have a good workout but now that I'm typing this and thinking about the different aspect it was a pretty good workout.

    If my calculations are correct we're heading into the last week of this log. I have a pretty good feeling on most of the different aspects this product has to offer but lets see if Tropinol has anything up it's sleeves for the last week.

  7. I'm ready to see how this last week goes (and maybe you should consider getting another bottle to keep this going ).

    Glad to see that the strength and vascularity are still going strong!

    Definitely a great market to take advantage of right now! I'm a finance & marketing major so the fact that housing prices are relatively low, combined with very low interest rates, is very attractive to me. I hope I graduate and settle down in time before inflation and rising interest rates hit so I can get in on this!

    Probably the only acceptable reason not to buy more iForce stuff.

    yeah thats why i'm hoping on the house search...lower interest rates and even the house prices are down, even had an agreeement with a guy to buy his fathers house but he backed out on me as i was getting all the financials set up

  12. we are just about done refinancing our home...will save us some serious $$

  13. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Chest: HS chest press 3 sets (easy on joints)
    DB Incline press 6 sets (compound)
    Incline Db flys superset with veritcal close grip bar press 3 sets of flys...extra set of close grip (pump)
    Pec Deck 4 sets and last set was a double drop set (pump)
    Flat DB fly stretch (stretch)

    Tris: Close grip Dips 3 sets
    Flat bench cable skull crushers 4 sets
    Triangle pulldown superset with underhand extension 3 sets

    Strength: Disappointing here. I walked in the gym with a small pep in my step but once I touched the dumbbells my arms felt like jello. Thats why I forced myself to do more incline presses. I thought maybe I just needed to warm up but never really felt strong during my chest workout. Hence why I did drop sets and supersets to keep the intensity high. However triceps weren't too bad.

    Pump: Pumps were right where they should have been. I really was able to feel my upper chest fill up and then while doing the pec deck I really felt a pump in the middle of my lower chest. Triceps also had a rock solid pump during the superset portion of the workout.

    Note: I have been going strong in the gym all winter, so the strength probably has to do with my body needing a rest. Also been feeling a bit of pain in my neck thats going down my back so I'm in the process of getting an ART chiro appointment as well as a massage appointment.

    Now's a great time to refi, make sure you do it for an appropriate time period (as in, if you're refinancing a 30-year mortgage, don't do another 30-year time period...those earliest payments are almost all interest and that's where the bank makes it's money - that's why they don't mind refinancing you again from 6% or whatever it is to 2.75% ).

    Sorry to hear that your strength decreased - at least you got a killer pump. We all have those days in the gym.

    My ass has definitely been dragging, taking this week off and enjoying some time on the beach with my family.

    Smart plan, always best to finish strong as long as you are not putting yourself at risk for injury!

  19. Tuesday: Back/Bis

    Back: Pull ups 2 sets
    Underhand BB Row 4 sets
    Iso Lateral Row 4 sets
    From the knee, rope lat pull down 3 sets
    Meadow row 3 sets
    Deadlift 4 sets

    Bi: BB curl 4 sets
    EZ curl 4 sets
    Ez curl preacher curl 2 sets

    Pumps: Pumps were pretty intense, during the rows my upper back felt blown up. Everything else just felt like I was able to really feel the muscles squeeze since they were pretty blown up. Lower back blew up quick from the deadlifts as well and that stuck, woke up in the middle of the night last night and I still felt like my lower back was pumped.

    Strength: It was right were it should have been. Everything was near where I've been, nothing increased but def not lower either. I haven't been doing meadow rows very long but I was able to do more weight yesterday than I ever did before. I do biceps and don't really pay attention to weight but I realized last night that I was curling some decent weight. Weight that I've done before but I felt like I struggled less especially during the first few reps of each set.

    Mood: I've been in a pretty good mood. But I did get alittle angry last night at the gym owner. Theres three lat pulldown machines and two of them the cables were dragging and for the most part useless. I could do less weight on them and thats doesn't bother me but when the pulldown drags at different speeds throughout the whole rep I can't stand it. There was something else that bothered me too but I can't think of it right now so it must not have been too bad. So I guess you can say my aggression increased a bit.

    Sleep: Sleep has been spuratic. I slept like a baby all weekend, actually overslept a bit. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday night I haven't been able to fall asleep all that quickly. Then when I do fall asleep I'm back up in an hour. Tired this morning as I'm typing this

  22. Wednesday: Cardio/Abs

    Nothing crazy here, evertyhing went smoothly. Last 5 minutes of cardio seemed to take forever but that happens.

    Abs were good too...really felt a nice squeeze going on.

    including today I have 3 days left....which is fine because Saturday is kind of the end of my workout week anyway.

    I used to love doing abs

    I never liked doing abs - always doing coach-directed leg lifts, planks, crunches at football and track.

    I haven't done any in quite some time - heavy deadlifts and squats work them just fine.

    I use to be like that, until about 4 months ago, very serious.
