OK it is now Saturday. Day 3 of resting. I am feeling really good now. I slept about 10 hours last night (woke up after 8, then decided it would be a good idea to go back to sleep as I have nothing else important to do today...slept for 2 more hours), and got about 8 for the two previous nights. I am feeling much better overall, and really psyched to get back to it.
I think that adding in a bit more carbs has helped everything out also, with no apparent negative consequences. It seems like, while using AB/ABE cutting carbs in any extreme way is not necessary for me.
I am thinking about getting back into the gym tomorrow. I know I said I would wait until Monday, but if I feel good, I think it should be ok. I am thinking about just doing a basic pulling day with low intensity steady state cardio. Maybe 3 exercises (rack pulls, pulldowns, curls), at warm-up sets plus maybe 2 working sets to failure of each instead of rest-pause. Depending on how that feels, I am thinking about going back to rest-pause for a pushing workout on Monday. What do you guys think of that plan?

If you feel good then hit it back up but go slow. A light workout to get some blood flow going and not very heavy weights may be helpful.

Agreed with bolt, if you are feeling better and up to it, hit the gym for a not so intense session. Then on Monday, if you feel up to it, start killing it in there.

Nice, ok thanks guys. I think I am going to try it. Will not go too heavy, but will try to get some good rack pulls in (which I guess will be heavy...but after that will take it easy ). I am feeling great, and I think that I will be able to push it hard for my last three logged workouts on MWF!

Well, I had my first workout back today. I lost a kilogram during my three rest days, so I am thinking my CNS was definitely pretty far gone last week. I did a lower intensity than normal. I did 3 exercises: rack pulls, wide grip pull downs, and cable curls. I did 10 min of steady state cardio before as a warmup. I was careful not to go above what felt like 90% of maximum effort. Here are the numbers:
100KG x 5
140KG x 5
160KG x 5
180 x 0
-Wide grip pull downs
82KG x 5
89KG x 5
96KG x 5
103KG x 5
103KG x 5
100 x 5
110 x 5
110 x 5
120 x 5
120 x 5
Overall, I did feel better than last Wednesday, but still, I didn't feel as great as I would have wanted. That could have been because my gym was about 85 degrees and filled with smoke (some stupid Daoist parade...they play obnoxious music really loudly, march through the middle of a working street, and blast off hundreds of thousands of firecrackers (literally)). My rack pull numbers were similar to what they were last time, but I didn't feel like I had as much left in the tank as I should have. When I tried 180KG (4 plates per side), I felt like I probably could have gotten one or two reps if I pushed it 100%, but I didn't want to risk it. I also had a little bit of an anxious feeling, which may of may not have been residual CNS fatigue. Tomorrow, I will keep it dialed back a bit and see how I feel. If everything goes well, it will be back to rest-pause training on Wednesday!

Glad you were able to get into the gym and get a session in. I'd agree, once you feel like you are back to 100%, then I would go back to your rest-pause training.
05-06-2013, 11:05 AM
Well, I had a decent training day today. Not 100%, but definitely good enough to keep on blastin' through a few more sessions. I did a lower-intensity workout again tonight, but let myself push it a little harder, maybe 95% at times. Here are the numbers:
-Flat Bench (weird numbers because I converted from 60,70,80,90,100 KG)
133 x 5
154 x 5
176 x 5
198 x 4
220 x 1
-Dumbbell shoulder press
45s x 5
50s x 5
55s x 5
60s x 5
65s x 2
-Skull Crushers (again converted from KG, 30, 40, 45, 50)
66 x 5
88 x 5
99 x 5
110 x 5
110 x 1
Dumbbell side raise
15s x 5
20s x 5
25s x 5
30s x 5
35s x 5
Dumbbell front raises
20s x 5
25s x 5
30s x 5
35s x 5
40s x 5
I did 10 min of SS cardio before and another 10 min after weights; then went to BJJ. No complaints about either of those.
Overall I felt better than yesterday, and a lot better than last week, but not quite 100%. I cooled it with the PWO today. I switched from a DMAA product, to about 1/6 of a sample packet of AIs Maniac (just caffeine). It tasted really good. I didn't really feel anything, so I guess it is milder than I thought. I think it was good not rushing back into the DMAA PWO as amping myself up isn't too smart if my CNS is already having trouble with the status quo. I am debating whether or not to go back to RP training on Wednesday. I generally handle pulling motions better than pushing, so it would be a good day to experiment.
I am thinking I may have found a way to get more than 100lb dumbbells for Wednesday's chainsaws. My gym just got 10KG chains. If I can manage to wrap one around my wrist and forearm for the set with the 100lb dumbbell, I would get up to 122 lbs. Does that sound like it could work? Anyway, that's about it for today. Thanks for reading!

I thought I would pop in here after talking to you on the PES Facebook page.
How is everything going?
In for pictures of you wrapping chains around your arm to try and increase the weight. When I used to work in a tiny leisure centre gym people regularly used the biggest dumbbells for chest pressing and then got someone to place a smaller dumbbell between their fingers so they were holding two dumbbells in each hand lol. Not so good for health and safety...

Seriously though, I will see if I can get a pic of the chains...but more concerned about actually making it work. It seems to be one of those plans that has a 50%-at-best chance.

I can't wait to do my before/after pics. Those who were impressed by my before/after progress in my last AB run, you ain't seen nothin yet! Bigger, leaner, harder, stronger!

Subbed with extra interest for pics.

If you are successful at getting 10kg chains around your arm, get a picture somehow haha. I would love to see that.

Dude, how do you like versa-1? It seemed so great in beta testers, but reviews so far are pretty weak. Wondering what a seasoned lifter thinks of it. Please don't be shy about details . That is crazy that you are getting that much stronger so quickly, but I know from experience how ABE affects strength AND endurance so well! I just did a hardcore workout and I am still WIRED right now. I seriously want to run back to the gym already, haha.
On a side note, where did you find 7-Keto? I have a few bottles of OG Anabeta and SS forskolin, and wouldn't mind fully Elite-ing my AB. PM me a link if you can.
Pics will be taken tomorrow and posted soon after. You will DEFINITELY get motivated from them.
