    Thanks! That is the level of depth I hit today on my pause squats...brutal stuff.


    Week 6 Day 2- June 11:

    Pre-workout: 1 scoop MBCAA+ and 2ABE
    Periworkout: 1 scoop Strive and 25g carbohydrates

    Training:
    Day 2:

    Deadlift w/Belt Work up to x4 @9. Load Drop. 6-9% Fatigue
    Bench +90mm Work up to x3 @9. Load Drop. 6-9% Fatigue
    2ct Pause Squat Work up to x3 @ 8. Repeats.

    Adductor/IT Band foam roll, Glute Activation
    Deadlift w/Belt:
    Warm Up- 135lbs x 5, 185lbs x5, 225lbs x 5, 275lbs x 5
    315lbs x 4 @7
    345lbs x 4 @7.5
    365lbs x 4 @9
    Load Drop
    330lbs x 4 @7
    330lbs x 4 @7
    330lbs x 4 @8
    330lbs x 4 @8.5

    Bar felt light off the ground today compared to the last several weeks. 315lbs went up with some nice speed. 345lbs went up much easier than anticipated. 365lbs wasn't super tough either and may have been a shade under 9 but I wanted to maintain some perfect form. Load drop made the weight feel super light. I stopped after the fourth set as my upper glute got real tight and I felt it was better safe than sorry (no issues for the rest of the workout or so far today with it).

    Upper/Lower Trap Mash
    Bench + Bands:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5 x 2, 95lbs x 5, 115lbs x 5, 135lbs x 3
    155lbs x 3 @8
    165lbs x 3 @8
    175lbs x 3 @9
    Load Drop
    160lbs x 3 @7
    160lbs x 3 @7
    160lbs x 3 @7
    160lbs x 3 @8
    160lbs x 3 @9

    175lbs may have been a tad over 9. Last rep was slower than I wanted. Felt really quick and solid after the load drop. Ability to bang out multiple sets on bench was up again today. Nice trend the last two days, considering I normally die out on bench pretty quick.

    2ct Pause Squat(no belt):
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5, 95lbs x 5, 135lbs x 5, 185lbs x 3, 225lbs x 3
    275lbs x 3 @7.5
    295lbs x 3 @8
    295lbs x 3 @8.5
    295lbs x 3 @9

    Wasn't really looking forward to this...being at the end of the workout and having to hit some heavy paused squats was sitting in the back of my mind all morning. Went pretty well. I went as low as I could on these (ATG) and the hips felt better than they did yesterday on squats.

    Since I was a little fatigued yesterday I decided to go to sleep earlier last night and got a solid 9 hours in bed. Felt very refreshed this morning and TRAC had my recovery on point. Definitely showed itself in today's solid session. I filmed a lot of my lifts today on my buddies phone but didn't post them to youtube so no vids for the log. I did much better maintaining lower hips through the initial pull of the deadlifts, which may explain why it felt easier from the floor today.

    Diet:
    Moderate carbohydrate day. Upped fats a little to maintain same caloric intake as yesterday.

    Supplements:
    -Decimate + AT2 + BF upon waking. This had me humming all morning and with the extra energy I skipped a pre-workout stim today.
    -I ate a crap load of carbs yesterday. Despite this I woke up dry and had no carb comas yesterday afternoon. Carbs are still high but not as many as yesterday. Despite the crazy volume on the benching I have zero DOMS in the upper body.
    -All day pumps are apparent. ABE is definitely kicked in fully and has added to the fullness Burn24 has me holding. Getting pumps at 3-5 reps on compound exercises with relatively long rest periods? Can't imagine doing some GVT or anything above 10 reps right now...
    -I've been avoiding snapping pics lately as I have a tendency to overanalyze them and considering I want to focus on strength I feel it better not to nitpick looking at myself and wondering if I am adding fat, etc. I did flex a bit in the mirror last night (lol) and veins were everywhere...I was surprised.

  4. June 19th GPP/Prehab/Etc:

    Foam Roll, Softball/Golfball Mash

    Prehab/Rehab:
    Side Lying External Rotation- 3x10
    Face Pulls- 2 x 10
    External Rotation Stretch
    Ab Wheel- 2 x 10

    Neglected Muscles
    Row: 3x10
    Abs: 2x10

    Conditioning
    162-180BPM with 5% Fatigue.
    Interval work for 11 minutes (Sled Dragging).

    Stretching- 20minutes

    Tired this morning. Once again (like usual) after doing this workout I felt much better. I spent some extra time stretching and doing some soft tissue work as I have found a trigger point in my shoulder that needed extra attention and my hip flexors are more tight than usual (compared to last couple months).




    Day 3- June 20th:


    Training:
    Day 3:

    Pre-workout: 2 ABE + 2 AlphaT2 + 1 scoop ModernBCAA+
    Periworkout: 1 scoop Strive + 35g carbohydrates

    Competition Bench Press Work up to x4 @9 Load Drop 6-9%
    2ct Pause Squat Work up to x3 @9 Load Drop 6-9%
    Military Press x3 @8 Repeats.

    Upper Back/Mid Back Mash + Shoulder Mobility
    Competition Bench (Paused):
    Warm Up- 45lbs x 10, 95lbs x 5, 115lbs x 5, 135lbs x 5
    175lbs x 4 @7
    195lbs x 4 @8
    215lbs x 4 @9
    Load Drop
    200lbs x 4 @8
    200lbs x 4 @8
    200lbs x 4 @8.5
    200lbs x 4 @9

    Was nervous attempting 215lbs. Just because I have had times where I thought I'd get the weight with paused bench, only to miss. I was feeling really good today so just went for it. Felt light unracking it and hit a solid 4 with a definite 5th in the tank. Very happy with how the whole set went. Bench is the biggest mental challenge of all the lifts for me (I always doubt it and it is my weakest lift).

    2ct Pause Squat:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5, 135lbs x 5, 185lbs x 3, 225 x 3
    275lbs x 3 @ 8
    315lbs x 3 @ 9
    Load Drop
    290lbs x 3 @ 7.5
    290lbs x 3 @ 8
    290lbs x 3 @ 8
    290lbs x 3 @ 9
    Felt great and no hip tightness today. Final rep on the @ 9 sets had the hips rise a little faster than chest on each, so I considered that one rep left (probably 2 left in the tank but not with the level of form I would prefer). Very slight elbow discomfort today.

    Military Press: Warm Up: 45lbs x 8, 95lbs x 8
    115lbs x 5 @ 8
    115lbs x 5 @8.5
    115lbs x 5 @ 9

    If I said I hate push press then that means I despise these. Form felt great (hadn't done these in awhile), but I fatigued quickly.

    Diet:
    Yesterday was my lowest carb day (still 250g) and today will be a high carb day again (same as Monday). I made a ton of sloppy joes for the week...haven't had that in forever.

    Supplements:
    -I ran out of AlphaT2 yesterday but got some more in today.
    -I am pretty ravenous at night. Eat a ton and feel full but still hungry.
    -Weight up another pound this week so far.
    -I feel strong in the gym on everything. Weights feel lighter and I am pretty much hitting new heights with EVERYTHING I do.

  5. Awesome news on how the weights are moving for you . My bench used to be bomb until I got bicep tendinitis. Couldn't BB bench at all and I just recently started incorporating it again as well as incline BB. No aggravation noticed yet which is good news. I am having to do BB bench on the smith machine though.

  6. Any GI sides from the burn 24?? What carbs do you use around your workout?

  7. Quote Originally Posted by sideshowdoc View Post

    I've noticed no sides at all. Never had any stomach issues, etc.

    Whatever I have around gets used (dextrose, gatorade powder, etc.). Right now I got a deal on a bunch of cyclic dextrin, but I wouldn't way it is anything special. It doesn't taste bad, mix weird, or upset my stomach (it is more expensive than other carbs though).



    Day 4- June 21th:


    Pre-workout: 2ABE + 1 AT2 + 1 scoop MBCAA+
    Periworkout: Strive + 35g carbs

    2ct Pause Deadlift Work up to x3 @9 Load Drop (6-9%)
    8cm Towel Press Work up to x3 @9 Load Drop (6-9%)
    Pendlay Rows x 5 @8 Repeats.

    Adductor Foam Rolling/Mobility, Glute Activation
    2ct Pause Deadlift:
    Warm Up- 135lbs x 5 (no pause), 135lbs x 5 (pause), 185lbs x 5, 225lbs x 5
    275lbs x 3 @7.5
    305lbs x 3 @8
    325lbs x 3 @9
    Load Drop
    305lbs x 3 @ 7
    305lbs x 3 @7.5
    305lbs x 3 @7.5
    305lbs x 3 @8
    305lbs x 3 @9

    This is definitely a weakness in my deads. Lower back was nice and tight, but upper back had some slight rounding as weights got higher. I really focused on keeping the hips down and maintaining a solid back angle to the knees, holding, then bringing the hips through. Felt demolished after all those sets, but felt good doing them.

    Upper/Mid Back Mash/Shoulder Mobility
    8cm Towel Press:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5, 95lbs x 5, 135lbs x 5, 175lbs x 5
    205lbs x 3 @ 8
    225lbs x 3 @9
    Load Drop
    205lbs x 3 @ 7.5
    205lbs x 3 @ 7.5
    205lbs x 3 @8
    205lbs x 3 @8
    205lbs x 3 @8
    205lbs x 3 @9

    My back was feeling fatigued from the pause deadlifts and tightness suffered on a couple sets. 205lbs felt easier after the 225lbs set. I feel confident unracking the weight lately and it feels lighter in my hands (something foreign to me with bench). Still not crazy numbers here but solid improvement has me pleased with current rate of progress.

    Pendlay Rows:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 8, 95lbs x 8, 115lbs x 5
    135lbs x 5 @7
    155lbs x 5 @7
    165lbs x 5 @8
    165lbs x 5 @8
    165lbs x 5 @8
    165lbs x 5 @9

    These felt really awkward at first, even though they usually feel pretty solid when I do them. Felt heavy with only 165lbs today, but still finished off the workout feeling confident.

    I was up late last night compared to usual (NBA Finals Game 7) and when I woke up I figured I'd end up being real tired and have a crappy TRAC. Plugged things in and got feedback that I was recovering great and did end up feeling solid the whole day. This exercise combo today was probably my least favorite (in terms of how difficult each movement is), but I loved it in the sense that I felt I was hitting some weak areas. Gym was an inferno today and I may have been dehydrated by the end despite tons of fluid and electrolyte intake.

    Diet:
    Moderate carbohydrate day

    Supplements:
    -Last scoop of Strive.
    -Got Punch Creignite. They should name it HNGGGG punch.
    -Still maintaining normal dosing on everything else like usual.
    -Surprisingly minimal DOMS despite all this extra volume this week. Recovery is top notch ATM.

  8. Game 7 was nuts but not as crazy as game 6, which the Spurs blew.

    That is a lot of volume... And I like it .

    Ya all those sets were brutal...back down to a more normal volume for the rest of this.Weekend was pretty slow. Just worked, went to see World War Z, and did a ton of reading when I didn't have work.

    Week 7 Day 1- June 24:
    Pre-workout: 1 scoop ModernBCAA+, 2 ABE, and 1 AlphaT2
    Periworkout: 1 scoop ModernBCAA+, 10g PeptoPro, and 25g Carbs

    Squat w/Belt Work up to x3 @9 (Load Drop) 4-6% Fatigue
    2ct Pause Bench Work up to x2 @9 (Load Drop) 4-6% Fatigue
    Close Grip Floor Press Work up to x3 @8 (Repeats)

    Hip Mobility, Glute Activation
    Squats w/Belt:
    Warm Up- 135lbs x 6, 185lbs x6, 225lbs x 6, 275lbs x 6
    315lbs x 3 @8
    335lbs x 3 @8
    355lbs x 3 @9
    Load Drop
    335lbs x 3 @8
    335lbs x 3 @9

    Left hip flexor was really tight/tender today. It took me awhile to get into my groove. Wasn't feeling as good as usual today, so strength didn't seem super, but I guess hitting an easy triple at 355lbs on an off day isn't too bad and is still progress.

    Upper/Lower Trap Mash/Shoulder Mobility
    2ct Pause Bench:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5 x 2, 95lbs x 5, 115lbs x 5, 135lbs x 5
    175lbs x 2 @7
    195lbs x 2 @8
    215lbs x 2 @8
    225lbs x 2 @9
    Load Drop
    215 x 2 @8.5
    215 x 2 @9

    Was only shooting to repeat hitting 215lbs today (what I hit two weeks ago with this lift) since I was feeling off today. 215lbs moved pretty quick so I went with 225lbs. Slight grind on rep two, but was very pleased with how I handled the weight. Not having any mental barriers with bench lately, and feeling more confident with higher weights and percents of my max.

    Close Grip Floor Press:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 8, 95lbs x 8, 135lbs x 8
    165lbs x 3 @7
    185lbs x 3 @8
    185lbs x 3 @8
    185lbs x 3 @8
    185lbs x 3 @9

    I woke up feeling very refreshed today, but then got into an "off" feeling pretty quick. Not sure exactly why (probably slept in an odd position), but I had a random discomfort turning my head to the left all day in my neck. It made bench set up and floor press execution feel weird. Still hit solid numbers on those though so I'll take it. May need to add some more electrolytes and water to my periworkout drink as it was insanely hot in the gym today and I feel dehydrated (and felt like crap at work after).

    Diet:
    High Carb Day.

    Supplements:
    -Getting that super dense, all day, muscle hardness feeling lately. Vascularity was also up quite a bit today. Veins all over the arms and legs (even more so than usual).
    -Weight held steady from last week.
    -Hunger is up. I am eating a lot and even when full I still want more. Kind of awkward at times..
    -No bloat or any other issues despite increased caloric intake last week.

  10. Week 7 Day 2- June 25th:


    Training:
    Day 2:

    Pre-workout: 1 scoop ModernBCAA+, 2 ABE, and 1 AT2
    Peri-workout: 1 scoop ModernBCAA+, 10g PeptoPro, and 25g Carbs

    Deadlift w/Belt Work up to x3 @9. Load Drop. 4-6% Fatigue
    Bench +90mm Work up to x6 @10. Load Drop. 4-6% Fatigue
    Front Squat Work up to x3 @ 8. Repeats.

    Adductor/IT Band foam roll, Hip Mobility, Glute Activation
    Deadlift w/Belt:
    Warm Up- 135lbs x 5, 185lbs x5, 225lbs x 5, 275lbs x 5
    315lbs x 3 @7
    365lbs x 3 @8
    385lbs x 3 @9
    Load Drop
    365lbs x 3 @8
    365lbs x 3 @8
    365lbs x 3 @9

    365lbs moved pretty easy so I bumped up to 385lbs. Solid weight for today and felt good pulling that. On my third set after the load drop my lower back/glutes tightened up. This has happened before and it is super annoying. I felt it get tight on the set and the weight still moved easy but stopped there due to the tightness.

    Upper/Lower Trap Mash
    Bench + Bands:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5 x 2, 95lbs x 7
    115lbs x 6 @7
    135lbs x 6 @8
    155lbs x 6 @10
    Load Drop
    145lbs x 6 @9
    145lbs x 6 @10

    Lower back was real tight while doing this. 155lbs was just under a ten but I wouldn't have been able to add more and gotten 6 again after that effort.

    Front Squat:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 10, 95lbs x 8, 135lbs x 5, 185lbs x 3
    205lbs x 3 @7
    225lbs x 3 @7.5
    245lbs x 3 @8
    245lbs x 3 @8
    245lbs x 3 @9

    By this point I didn't feel any issues in my back/glutes. These were pretty tough though.

    Mean trigger point in my gluteus medius. Hit it with some myofascial release and it feels better currently.

    Diet:
    Moderate Carbs today. I have noticed a slight bloat after my lower carb days recently. Trying to narrow it down to see if it is a particular food causing this issue, or if it is a certain macronutrient level (sometimes too high of fats does this too me apparently...weird that I do so much better with more carbs compared to several years ago). As of the last two days I have looked super lean and not like I am having any issues, bu noted it on the weekend. Just a random note...it could also be water intake not being high enough due to the heat and my sweating more.

    Supplements:
    -They all appear to be doing their job lately. I did notice a loss of hunger yesterday (I felt off all day too), but today my post-workout meal wasn't enough to dent my hunger (so back to normal).
    -Strength still going up. Felt good having 385lbs in my hand for dealifts again. Will be busting over 4 plates again soon and interested to see where my max ends up in a couple weeks.
    -I have been rather low on the stim intake lately. Other than AT2 and Decimate in the mornings I have really tried to limit my stimulant intake pre-workout. Partly trying to stay more relaxed and less psyched up during my lifts. Seems to be helping my recovery some. Interesting change too since I dropped my ipod usage as well and have just been focusing on my technique more.


    Looking into trying to compete again in October...too bad there seems a severe lack of meets around me. The search continues...

    Yessir. Will have a whole cycle set up once I hit my mock meet to carry me into the end of October.

    I hit my glute medius trigger point again and did a bunch of stretching. Feel pretty good right now. Got a ton of chicken in the oven with some brussel sprouts baking.

  17. You get bloat from too little water? interesting.

    DO you notice any big difference using the peptopro as opposed to just some more aminos? THinking about trying either that or the hydro 520 (a good amount cheaper and about the same molecular size...520 compared to 300 angstroms)

    Lower back was real tight while doing this. 155lbs was just under a ten but I wouldn't have been able to add more and gotten 6 again after that effort.

    Front Squat:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 10, 95lbs x 8, 135lbs x 5, 185lbs x 3
    205lbs x 3 @7
    225lbs x 3 @7.5
    245lbs x 3 @8
    245lbs x 3 @8
    245lbs x 3 @9

    By this point I didn't feel any issues in my back/glutes. These were pretty tough though.

    Mean trigger point in my gluteus medius. Hit it with some myofascial release and it feels better currently.

    Diet:
    Moderate Carbs today. I have noticed a slight bloat after my lower carb days recently. Trying to narrow it down to see if it is a particular food causing this issue, or if it is a certain macronutrient level (sometimes too high of fats does this too me apparently...weird that I do so much better with more carbs compared to several years ago). As of the last two days I have looked super lean and not like I am having any issues, bu noted it on the weekend. Just a random note...it could also be water intake not being high enough due to the heat and my sweating more.

    Supplements:
    -They all appear to be doing their job lately. I did notice a loss of hunger yesterday (I felt off all day too), but today my post-workout meal wasn't enough to dent my hunger (so back to normal).
    -Strength still going up. Felt good having 385lbs in my hand for dealifts again. Will be busting over 4 plates again soon and interested to see where my max ends up in a couple weeks.
    -I have been rather low on the stim intake lately. Other than AT2 and Decimate in the mornings I have really tried to limit my stimulant intake pre-workout. Partly trying to stay more relaxed and less psyched up during my lifts. Seems to be helping my recovery some. Interesting change too since I dropped my ipod usage as well and have just been focusing on my technique more.


    Looking into trying to compete again in October...too bad there seems a severe lack of meets around me. The search continues...

  18. Ya I seem to get some better recovery with a decent amount of PeptoPro. Not something I really cared about with my training until I hit the powerlifting stuff. Helps when I have the higher frequency stuff going on (like right now).

    Woke up today and my glutes/lower back were sore/tight. Hit a trigger spot on my glutes before this workout and it seemed to make it better. By the end I felt back to normal and really good. Going to continue to really watch this particular area and really need to stay on top of my mobility and stretching for the hips, glutes, and lower body in general.

    145lbs x 3 @8
    145lbs x 3 @9

    Still some slight tightness in the lower back/glute area. I hit it with some myofascial release and stretching before any lifting today and I felt pretty much normal during the lift (other than constantly thinking about it in the back of my mind). Trigger points were less severe today and it didn't really hamper my lift. I did try to take it easy and tried to stay very calm all workout hoping to not aggravate anything.

    Diet:
    High Carb Day. May go out and get something tonight as I am starving and not sure if my normal meal plan will quench it..

    Supplements:
    -Only 2 days left of Bioforge.
    -Good recovery from a DOMS perspective, but the volume of last week is still hitting me. Some slight trends of overreaching atm (not a bad thing and about where it should be).
    -I keep forgetting to add that I am also taking in some more liquid fish oil lately as I am really missing some omega-3s (other than Aqua Red) in my diet currently. Shifting some food choices around to and salting more food as well.

  21. Day 4- June 28th:


    Pre-workout: 2ABE, 1 AT2, 1 scoop ModernBCAA+
    Periworkout: 1 scoop ModernBCAA+, 5g PeptoPro, 25g Carbs

    Deadlift w/Minis Work up to x2 @9 Load Drop (4-6%)
    Towel Press Work up to x2 @9 Load Drop (4-6%)
    Snatch SLDL x4 @8 Repeats.

    Glute Mash, Adductor Foam Rolling/Mobility, Glute Activation

    Warm Up- 135lbs x 5 (warm up no bands), 135lbs x 5 (all subsequent sets with bands), 185lbs x 5, 225lbs x 4
    275lbs x 2 @7.5

    Load Drop
    325lbs x 2 @8
    325lbs x 2 @8
    325lbs x 2 @9

    I felt 100% today (no glute/low back tightness/pain/etc) but was still nervous about pulling. I thought the last set was 335lbs but was actually 345lbs and went up pretty easy. I wasn't very fast off the floor but had good speed once I was below the knees and to lockout. I found it interesting that despite the set back on Tuesday, today I felt my form was much better than usual and it was only on my second rep on 345lbs that I felt even the slightest upper back rounding (lower back felt strong and secure all day).

    Upper/Mid Back Mash/Shoulder Mobility
    8cm Towel Press:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 5, 95lbs x 5, 135lbs x 5, 165lbs x 4

    235lbs x 2 @9
    Load Drop
    225lbs x 2 @8
    225lbs x 2 @9

    I have great speed on the presses today. Much less of a sticking point in my upper half of my presses than usual (something I have noticed more and more improvement on in the last several weeks).

    Snatch SLDL:
    Warm Up: 45lbs x 8, 135lbs x 8, 185lbs x 5
    225lbs x 4 @7
    255lbs x 4 @7
    275lbs x 4 @8
    275lbs x 4 @8
    275lbs x 4 @8
    275lbs x 4 @9

    Was a little tired earlier in the day but felt great by the time my lift started. This lift was even better mentally than physically. I was a little worried and down about the hip/glute tightness the last couple days so not having any problems today and actually putting up some improved numbers was a nice feeling.

    Diet:
    Moderate carb today. I am eating a lot and my grocery bill is annoying...I also feel like I am always buying food. If I was a bigger guy who had to eat even more idk what I'd do.

    Supplements:
    -Still going pretty low stim most days. Took some Decimate + AT2 this morning though. No pre-workout stims. If I take enhanced again soon it is gonna get crazy...........feel great lately though.
    -Solid body comp still. Almost feel my waist is too small right now for some of this heavy lifting (sitting around 28").
    -Strength is great this week though. Other than yesterday things have been awesome. I felt unstoppable again today. I may have been able to do even more but didn't want to push it. Excited for my mock meet coming up!
    -I did end up eating a meal with a bunch of ice-cream and cereal yesterday. I am not super strict with my diet (but then again compared to what even most people on line consider strict it is), but the ice cream was epic (BnJ everything but the). Woke up looking sharp though.

  25. I need to get back to Wyoming so I can start cooking more types of food. I am kind of limited as of right now on my choices and seeing The Solution and Breezy's logs, I can hardly open them because of all the food porn going on.
