Jim gets a month of R+R from the FREAKS over at Finaflex

  1. Weight looks good bud. That was a pretty quick cut to 179. Now you have a couple of pounds on the high side to play with. Just figure out what maintenance is and stick with it. 181 was too easy.

    Thanks brother, I hadn't been keeping up with it so I was surprised. Now I'll just have to keep up with checking it.

  3. He said he's not all that sore

    And more importantly, I am surprisingly not sore today at all. Not even a little bit.

    Did some work today (in the pouring rain, like a boss), and will update it when I get home.

    meh - day #2 is always the telltale anyway
    if he is not sore then, after such time away from doing any kind of intense training, then you did something wrong

    Hell, last week after just 2 weeks of deloading I was sore all weekend from it.

    All the training he's been doing over the past few years has been in the garage. Mostly upper body except for some weighted lunges and DB squats. (According to him).

    He was going pretty light, like the weight my wife uses (which is pretty strong for a 115 lb woman, but not a 175 lb man) but I still expected a little more soreness.

  6. Today's update:


    Headed to the gym and it was just starting to rain, went out back to the tires (and saw a bunch of stone blocks for block presses, and Atlas stones)


    Anyway, no preworkout today or BCAA/SAA intra.


    Tire Flip: x 8 flips x 2 (fast, got the heart rate up, may use the bigger tire next time)

    Rain really started coming down then.

    50M Sprint x 4

    Soaked, and done.

    Wanted to do more but the wife was ready to go so we left.

  7. Went in today to make up the workout that I missed yesterday (the gym closes at 6, I was not aware until I started getting ready to leave at 5:20...)

    So I did my RE Upper today.


    Pre: 1.25 Scoop Jack3d Micro, 4 Caps Max Pump, 1 Scoop Green Magnitude
    Intra: 1/2 Scoop BCAA/SAA

    Warm-up: Simple 6, Ext. Rotation with Band, Pull aparts, Bench Press: work up to 185

    Work: 205 x 6 x 2, 215 x 6

    Neutral Grip DB Bench: 60 x 10, 70 x 10

    a1. Neutral Grip Pull-up: BW x 6 x 3
    a2. High Pulley Face Pull: 80 x 10, 100 x 10, 120 x 10

    Dat back/bicep pump!

    Military Press: 135 x 5 x 2

    Cross Body Hammer Curl: 20 x 20 (per arm, prehab stuff)

    Squatting tomorrow, probably for 3. So I didn't do too much volume with the upper back, so that it isn't an issue tomrrow (or as little of an issue as possible)

  8. I mentioned it in another log, but last night without G8 I was dreaming a lot.

    Like very memorable, more than 1 different dreams.

    Which made me realize that I haven't been dreaming on nights that I have been using it.

  9. Dinner:

    Attachment 87242

    Cut up some chicken I grilled the other day, tossed it in a salad with three cheese vinaigrette and ate it with the rest of my left over spaghetti.

    Is the lack of dreaming worth the restful sleep?

    Yeah, I don't really care for dreams. Its just strange because every other Supp I've used for sleep has given me very vivid dreams.


    I actually dreamt this morning too, after I woke up for the first time (and shut off my alarm).

    I find that when I wake up for an alarm I have more mental clarity when using it, but still am able to fall right back to sleep (if I want to).

    But, for some reason, when I do that I dream. Strange....

    It was good, I'll probably do the salad again as my preWO meal today.

    I've also been eating a decent amount of homemade chicken salad that I made a day or so ago.

    It's awesome in a sandwich or on the vegetable wheat thin crackers I got yesterday.

  13. I tend to dream after I go back to sleep. Heck maybe I dream all the time but am only aware of them right before I wake or right after I go back to sleep for some reason. Most other GH products give pretty wild dreams but I don't always get them from G8, probably some of the direct sleep aids in it other than just GH inducing ingredients.

  15. everyone dreams when they sleep, period
    some just have the ability (based mostly on deepness of dream within REM cycle) to remember some of what they dreamt, at least before it fades away usually in first few minutes of waking, but this varies of course from person to person..has nothing to do with G8, per se

    now: there are some compounds, that DO affect the way & what you dream..any product containing melatonin, for instance, will give a great many ppl (myself inc) whack dreams, that make no sense..i don't think it still is enhancing the ability to "remember" actually, just impacting the content of such

    sleep and dream cycles, are a very extensive and complex subject really

  17. ME Lower today.


    Warm up: Agile 8, Shoulder Over and Back/Dislocate

    Pre: 3 Uncut, 4 Max Pump, 1 Scoop Green Magnitude
    Intra: BCAA/SAA

    Work up to 315 x 3

    Work sets: 365 x 3, 385 x 2 (failed 3rd), 385 x 2 (hit 3rd but it was shallow)

    Videos in a few.

    Note: Gonna start alternating wide stance (with vibrams) and close(er) stance with Oly Shoes.

    Talk to some PLers, fix wife's form, continue working on brothers squat form (who says he actually ended up being sore all weekend)

    Conv. Deads: 315 x 5 x 2
    Talk to PLer, settle out training idealogy, get solid advice

    Cont. 315 x 5

    a1. Hypers: BWx 10, +25 x 10
    a2. Lunges: BW x 16 x 2

    Leave.

    Had some more stuff planned, but between the warmup and all of the coaching I was at the gym for a good 3 hours. Which is much too long for my tastes (2 is about my limit, 30 min warmup/1.5hr workout) Got some good info today, squats are feeling decently strong, and my sticking point is painfully apparent in the videos.

    Gonna implement a little more conjugate rotation from this point forward (to try to push mine and my wifes squats a little farther) and to cut down on some of the CNS strain of alternating ME Squat/DL every week.

    I used to (which some may notice from the log) but since the last meet I've been focusing on linear progression with the Squat/Bench/DL and it's slower than hitting a solid rotation of moves that will all help me be better.

  18. nice work jim!

    yes very weird stuff, never have I dreamed the goofy things I have so consistently, when not using melatonin
    I do not even mess with it anymore

    I've never used it before, but my wife does occasionally. She's never mentioned any weird dreams, but I'm gonna ask her today.

  20. Oh yeah melatonin has been the source of many a twisted and unwanted dreamscape for me. Speaking of Dreamscape, awesome movie... Dennis Quaid, good stuff.
    Squats look good even the "shallow" squat looked pretty much parallel or very close.

    Yeah, it was gym parallel but I probably would get red lighted at a meet.

    Hip crease is supposed to be below the knee.

  23. My wife says she has crazy dreams when she uses it too.


    Weird.
