  1. Hopefully the sickness is going away. Working out and feeling symptoms of being sick is always sucky but if I can get in the gym to get a good sweat, I will. Glad to see you could at least get in there and get some legs and sweating in


  2. Food for yesterday: Cals: 2790 P: 212 F: 114 C: 199

    Appetite is coming back - so that's a good sign. I had absolutely no gas in the tank today though. I woke up feeling pretty ok, but that didn't last long. I managed to get a few sets of inclines & bent over rows in - nothing to write home about, but better than skipping entirely I guess...

  5. Finally starting to get thru this funk… Still a friggin snot factory in full production, but I’m able to breathe a little easier now. I basically phoned in my chest day Friday – did a few sets & called it early. Each rep was giving me a headache worse & worse –ears clogged, the works. Saturday, I hit a decent shoulder workout – numbers were back up to normal, added a few reps on a couple exercises. Rested & enjoyed the rest of my weekend. Came back this morning with a pretty decent leg workout. Added reps on a ham curls & calf raises. Hopefully, I’m out of the worst of it.

    Enough about me already – let’s talk about the stack I’m running. I’m just about halfway thru 8 weeks. After the 8 I have a bottle of Forskolin95 to stretch the Forskolin out to 12 weeks, plus I’m thinking about throwing in this bottle of HyperT2 I have in my stash.

    Anabeta Elite – Erase Pro – D-Pol:

    Anabeta –This has kept me hungry. Another boost of this is the wicked food pumps it gives. It loves carbs – Slam a bunch of grub & I don’t bloat, if so very little.

    D-Pol – Great libido boost – boys are noticeably fuller. Pumps that hang around for hours after training. A major improve in overall mood more noticeable during first couple weeks, not that it’s gone, just more or less acclimated to the feeling.

    ErasePro – Definitely keeping my dry. No joint pain this go round. I’ve felt creaky in the past from Erase & AD-3, but not yet with E-Pro.

    Overall, noticing a dryer, more defined look. Hoping some of the pump I’m seeing hangs around as real muscle after the stack ends. Great changes coming along -

  6. Incline Bench & rows were the name of the game today. Starting to feel ‘normal’ again. Still have a bunch of congestion & chest is a bit rough, but definitely better. So, I suck at inclines – Whenever I try to dig deep for a rep, I find my butt rising way high ([email protected] near flat benching…) Part of the deal is that I feel inclines quite a bit in my shoulder, so my reps thru the set morph into something loosely resembling the arch of a powerlifter’s bench…lol I'm working on it though, trying to not let my ego get in the way of good clean lifting, even if I have to drop back a bit & work the form out better. In the face of that struggle, though, I was able to set some new PRs for BB row & wide grip OHP – those are tough & I really like the hurt they put on me.

  7. Getting back on track now – Had a good shoulder day. Upped the weights & reps on a few exercises & just felt better overall. Strength is definitely coming back, as is my overall health: congestion continuing to clear, still some coughing, but much less. Leaning has continued nicely. I’m looking forward to the 2nd half of this stack – 4 more weeks-

  8. Good to hear things are getting back to normal. Final 4 weeks should be awesome

  9. Hell yeah! I'm looking to destroy the rest of this fat - not really wanting to go full-on cut, keeping it recomp style. I've been hanging around 177-180, the recent trend has been 174-178 - so lost a few lbs. The mirror is showing much more leaning than the scale - to me, that's a good sign I'm doing something right!

    As long as the mirror is showing good results, screw the scale to be honest. I go off what I see in the mirror and how the pants fit.

    For sure - [email protected] that scale!!! I only use it as a reference point - learning how my body reacts to different foods, how I hold water, etc.

    I'm stoked to see the leaning & not actually lose weight & strength. If I can keep this up, I'll be happy.

    In the very near future I'll be hopping on my first try with 5/3/1 - got an exciting next couple of months ahead!

  12. Gotta get back on track from another amazingly fast weekend… I enjoyed the weekend with the wife, so no food logging since Friday. Saturday was a light day, then we went out & gorged on Mexican food yesterday. Skipped my workout this morning. The way I’ve been feeling lately (sorta aimless & ready for a change), I’m ready to jump into 5/3/1. So, I’m not going to fight it any longer – taking a couple rest days, crunch some numbers, & then jumping right into it.

    Rest day today as well. That makes 3 days down (S,M,T), but I needed the rest, feeling much better. Still fighting some chest congestion - allergies in this area suck... Sat down with the book & worksheets last night. Starting 5/3/1 tomorrow! 4 days/week. I’m excited to get this running. Going with the Boring but Big program this first time thru. I’m anticipating that the fresh program will give a new stimulus for growth – take advantage of the second half of this stack…
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  14. Started 5/3/1 this morning – Boring But Big accessory work. Shoulders today – it didn’t help matters to have chopped up a couple small trees yesterday. For a short workout – I was smoked… I’ll have to keep better track of rest times, as I cut them a little short on my work sets, causing me to be a couple reps off my estimated last set. I’m not concerned yet though. I’ll run through one week & see how it fits. If sh!t seems weird by the end of the week, I’ll readjust and start new next week.

    OHP – (65% , 75%, 85%) - 3x5

    OHP – (lighter @40%) – 5x10

    Just wasn’t feeling much with the world in general yesterday, so a little cheat meal slipped thru…
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  15. Almost done with my first week of 5/3/1 – definitely noticing the change in routine. My hands are noticeably sore today as I type. Those hanging leg raises are no joke either. Looking forward to seeing where this program takes me –

    Supps: Some seriously leaning up going on in the mirror, while not looking flat. Feeling a little hint of knee & elbow dryness – nothing unmanageable, but it’s there. Getting great pumps just about every workout & meal. Definitely a great summertime stack. The hunger is noticeable, but I’m getting used to it. Carbs are dangerous though – hit up & I crave them even worse later.

    Diet: Since starting this new program, I let my calories go up a couple hundred higher. It’s helped my daily energy level, as well as my recovery (which seemed to be lacking recently). I haven’t weighed myself in several days, but I had been losing a little weight. Not a problem, it gives me the leeway needed to add a few back & stay in a recomp. If I start adding fluff I’ll cut back down again.

  17. Back at it – pardon the delay. Last week was a little rough, just kept my head down & went thru it…

    Getting thru the first week of 5 rep sets & now getting into the 3s week. I’m really liking the program so far. BBB setup is working out well – allowing me plenty of time on the bar working thru the lifts, fatiguing, etc. I wasn’t expecting the level of soreness I’ve been getting out of this.

    I also added a 30-day ab challenge that I picked up off another site. Basically, it’s 3 days on, 1 off, increasing rep challenge of sit-ups, crunchs, leg raises, & planks.

    Supps: Keep on leaning out, despite falling off the wagon a bit over the weekend. I’ve been feeling the joints ache a lot more lately. My diet got a little wacky at the end of the week, so that could be a factor there.

    Just getting as many as you can trying to beat it each week, minimum is the 5/3/1

    Ok Cool

    Remember reading some discussion somewhere saying that having too high (say +15) or too low (only 0-1 rep) showed if you had your max weight dialed in wrong
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  22. That's probably a good estimate obviously. If you're not hitting the minimum you're too heavy. If you're just ripping it out 15-20 too light.

  23. 3’s week going strong! I’m really liking this program. The ab challenge is giving me a shot in the gut as well… Haven’t weighed in almost 2 weeks – need to this weekend. Feeling more sore recently than I have in while. Going for some extra burn this week - hitting a 14-mile hike tomorrow morning –

  24. I didn’t hit the weights this weekend, but I did hit the trail. The wife & I went to the same forest we had our wedding at & hiked the longest trail in the park. 14-miles of up & downs, with a bit of ridge running here & there. My legs were destroyed after that hike. Spent the rest of the weekend eating & enjoying some family time. That being said, I’ve gotta watch my beer intake. Seems like every event we go to anymore has the beer flowing freely & free beer is soooo hard to resist… Since I couldn’t get out of bed early enough this morning, I’ll be hitting shoulders tonight – 531 week

    My work got hit with a virus last week, so we’ve only had intermittent net access since… Smashed OHP Monday. Felt great. Didn’t eat quite as well as I should have though & it kinda threw off my DL Tuesday. Not bad, but I felt like I should’ve had a few more reps than I hit. Also still not fully recovered from hiking.

    Supps – down to my last week or so of ABE/dpol/EPRO. It’s been a great run & not looking forward to running out. I’ll be continuing with another 4 weeks of Forskolin. I feel like I’m in a pretty decent holding pattern for a recomp. Once ABE ends, I’ll probably lower my cals a bit. Probably won’t take much effort as Anabeta really seems to make me crave carbs like crazy.

    --------------------------

    I feel like I’m getting fairly comfortable with logging food &, more importantly, hitting my numbers. My scale finally bit it, so haven’t weighed in about a week or so. The mirror has been treating me decent. I don’t feel that I’m leaning as fast as I’d ultimately like, but slow & steady wins the race – curious if the scale shows otherwise... Not concerned about hitting a target weight, just getting my abs out if possible (lower abs will be the death of me). Plus with jumping on 5/3/1, I’ll take the hit to keep strength up.

    Was a bit slow getting moving this morning. Ended up having a decent session. Shoulder felt a bit tight, but didn’t give me any issues. So on my rack, the rack pin height I need falls just in between the spacing available, making for a little awkwardness. It’s not that big of a deal now, more of an annoyance than anything – head game. I suppose I could throw plates under the bench (the bench is free of the rack) However, it is something that will eventually need taken care of.

  27. Subbed for ABE and 5/3/1

    and from I've read so far, your AMRAP 3rd sets seem to be in a reasonable rep range. my 5's week could vary between 8-12 ect ect Wendler has some articles on T-Nation and Elite FTS with little 'tweaks' and variations to 5/3/1 you can do

    Welcome!

    Thanks - wasn't sure if i was getting enough out of that last set. With one more session left this first 5/3/1 cycle before deload, Im anxious to get into the next cycle.

    I do feel i got a bit better strength gains with OG anabeta but leaning up while still increasing strength with ABE can't be beat either

    Ended up cheating fairly big yesterday. Went to Penn Station for lunch at work – small sub, small fries & soda came iin at @1400cals… Good lord… So my plan was to skip dinner & hold out the day @ 2900, but couldn’t resist the munchy urge & tacked on another 700 cals…

    Considering yesterday’s binge, the weights moved a-ok today. Felt a little out of the groove – knees, & hips a tad, felt a little dry from the EP – but otherwise everything was great.

    Nice progress on the AMRAP sets.
