    Yes it is!

    Most if the honey do's are done: I ended up doing some electrical work, plumbing and hanging shades. Might have a bit more electrical work before heading out to the final Nashville Sounds baseball game tomorrow.

    Here's a video review I did earlier about my first almost week using PF3.

    Update: 9/3/2013

    Alright, guys! Sorry for the delay in giving a real update!

    As I said, my weigh-in/BF% updates will occur on Thursday every week, so I will get to that in a few days.

    I've still been dosing the PF3 solo for the last three rest days. Once in the AM and once in the PM before dinner. Recovery has been phenomenal, and I almost didn't do a deload week this week because of it. However, because of the lack of fish oil lately (due to my ARA cycle), my joints need to break. On my deload, I am doing the prescribed 5/3/1 formula: 50% of my training max for my main lifts and cutting the weight by 50% on weighted accessories. On BW exercises (ab wheel, chins, situps, hypers), I will be cutting the volume in half. The idea is to just do active recovery and get some blood flow to the muscles. I'm keeping the same calories as before as well.

    I can't believe that placebo would affect DOMS as much as this has so far. This is absolutely the best recovery supplement that I have ever taken!

    On another note, I am still having the "regularity" and softening of stool from before. I am not having diarrhea per se, but definitely more loose than normal. Probably TMI, but I am thorough

    I am hoping that after this deload week that PF3 will be put to the test when I go back to my next cycle of 5/3/1 next Monday. I'm going to hit it hard and try to get far more than the prescribed reps! Here's a summary of my first deload workout. I will be working out for four days consecutively this week, which is another reason that a deload might be in order

    Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP):

    45 lb x 5 reps (+49 pts)
    60 lb x 5 reps (+54 pts)
    70 lb x 5 reps (+58 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W4, D1 Deload week: Feels strange to be on Deload week again. Not feeling that beat up, but still taking the deload!

    Face Pull:

    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)
    25 lb x 10 reps (+17 pts)

    Felt good on my shoulders. 60s between sets

    Standing Dumbbell Shoulder Press:

    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)
    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)
    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)
    12 lb x 12 reps (+42 pts)

    Got a good burn in my delts today. Super light, so focused on form and rep speed. 60s between sets

    Bent-Over Rear Delt Raise:

    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)
    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)
    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)
    5 lb x 15 reps (+18 pts)

    Good rear delt burn 60s between sets

    Dumbbell Bicep Curl:

    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)
    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)
    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)
    10 lb x 12 reps (+25 pts)

    Hard squeeze at the top, slow reps. 60s between sets.

    Shoulder Dislocation:

    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)

    Stretching:

    15 min (+3 pts)

    Spent a lot of time on this today. Hamstrings, triceps, lats, glutes/piriformis, quads, calves, pecs.

    Foam Rolling:

    5 min (+9 pts)

    After lifting and before stretching: back, piriformis, IT bands, quads

    Now that's what we like to hear. The issues you're having may be due to the betaine included in PF3, but should subside shortly.

    Killer work out!

    Thanks, man. I love and hate Deload weeks. They are necessary, but make me feel like I'm not accomplishing much, even though I really am

    Deload week continues. As I mentioned before, I hate deload week because of the lower work capacity, but love it for the recovery. I always feel more refreshed and ready to hit the weights the next week. I'm increasing the weights on everything but Bench this time, so should be a good cycle to test out PF3

    Tomorrow morning I will take some pictures as well as my weight and BF% measurements. I'm excited to see if anything happened in the last week. I know I feel like I have gained a bit of muscle.

    I have changed my dosing scheme just a bit, for Deload week anyway. I took only 1 scoop of PF3 post workout right before my meal. and I will take my second one right before dinner. Since I'm not pushing as hard, I figure I might not need as much. This will also spread out the doses a little more evenly, rather than having them bunched up in the AM all within a three hour window.

    Pre-workout I had four caps of ARA, 2 scoops of Pre-workout with BCAAs intraworkout.

    Post-workout was 1 scoop of Candy Grape Pure PF3, 2 scoops of Fermented Leucine and 5g Creatine mono.

    I did notice during my workout that I was a bit nauseated and seemed to have less energy. I will see if this continues tomorrow. I am used to working out fasted, so that shouldn't be an issue.

    So far, my muscles feel more full and my muscle recovery has been outstanding. Of course this week is not really much of a test, but it will ramp up again next monday.

    Here's my workout from today:

    Barbell Deadlift:

    135 lb x 5 reps (+66 pts)
    155 lb x 5 reps (+75 pts)
    185 lb x 5 reps (+92 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W4, D2: Deload week. Not much to say here

    Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown:

    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)
    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)
    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)
    55 lb x 12 reps (+23 pts)

    Easy. Really felt the MMC on these for once 60s rest between sets. Weight halved for Deload week.

    One-Arm Dumbbell Row:

    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)
    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)
    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)
    20 lb x 15 reps (+36 pts)

    Easy as well. Good lat stretch at the bottom. 60s rest between sets. Weight halved for Deload week.

    Hyperextension:

    15 reps (+5 pts)
    15 reps (+5 pts)

    Halved the sets bc Deload week. 60s rest between sets, good glute contractions.

    Ab Wheel (kneeling):

    10 reps (+18 pts)
    10 reps (+18 pts)

    Pretty easy, almost too easy. 60s rest between sets. Once again, sets halved for Deload.

    Update: 9/5/2013

    So far, so good. I took two scoops yesterday as planned: 1 post-workout with Creatine Mono and 2 scoops Fermented Leucine and 1 scoop right before dinner.

    I am planning on two scoops today, and probably should have kept the same dosage scheme, but shook it up a bit. I had one scoop with my pre-workout, BCAAs only intra and one scoop with creatine and 2 scoops of Fermented Leucine. I ate as I was drinking it.

    My stomach issues are really pretty minor. No diarrhea, just loose and very regular stool. Felt decent this morning, even after waking up at 4AM to hit the gym.

    As promised, I have a weight and BF% update. I took some pics this morning as well, but I will have to upload them this afternoon. Here's my stats:

    Weight: 221.2#
    BF%: 18.8%


    Last Thursday (8/29/2013) I was sitting at 219.4# at 18.7% BF. Pretty good, I think!

    Here's the crazy part: I ended up overeating quite a bit apparently. I actually averaged 3779.85 calories from 8/20-8/26/2013 and 3820.57 calories from 8/27-9/2/2013!!!

    My goal was ~3600 calories. Maybe my TDEE is wrong with me working out 4 times per week, walking a lot because of the bus and coaching my son's soccer team. Not sure, but I like it!

    BTW, my average protein intake from 8/29-9/4/2013 was 201.2857143 grams. I had minimal protein from a couple of protein bars, and no shakes at all.

    Here's the workout I did this morning:

    Barbell Bench Press:

    45 lb x 10 reps (+43 pts)
    75 lb x 5 reps (+45 pts)
    90 lb x 5 reps (+50 pts)
    110 lb x 5 reps (+57 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W4, D3: Easy stuff.

    Dumbbell Bench Press:

    20 lb x 10 reps (+42 pts)
    20 lb x 10 reps (+42 pts)
    20 lb x 10 reps (+42 pts)
    20 lb x 10 reps (+42 pts)

    Halved the weight. 60s between sets. Good stretch and squeeze action

    Dips - Triceps Version:

    10 reps || assisted || 140 lb (+3 pts)
    10 reps || assisted || 140 lb (+3 pts)

    Halved the number of sets. 60s rest between sets.

    Machine Chest Fly (Pec Deck):

    20 lb x 10 reps (+8 pts)
    20 lb x 10 reps (+8 pts)
    20 lb x 10 reps (+8 pts)
    20 lb x 10 reps (+8 pts)

    Halved the weight on these too. Really focused on the pec contractions, slow and easy reps. 60s rest between sets. Still got some pump

    Triceps Pushdown - Rope Attachment:

    11 lb x 15 reps (+8 pts)
    11 lb x 15 reps (+8 pts)
    11 lb x 15 reps (+8 pts)
    11 lb x 15 reps (+8 pts)

    Halved the weight. Easy, slow reps focused on full contraction and never letting the weight plates hit the stack. Easy.

    Shoulder Dislocation:

    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)

    Stretching:

    5 min (+2 pts)

    Skipped stretching yesterday. Shouldn't have. Stretched my glutes/piriformis, hamstrings, quads, calves.

    Foam Rolling:

    10 min (+18 pts)

    Skipped this yesterday too. Rolled my upper back, piriformis, quads, IT bands.

    Thanks, brother! I needed the deload, but I am ready to lift heavy again!

    This ARA is killing my joints, though, even with Orange Triad

    Update: 9/6/2013

    Still feeling pretty good on deload week. My joints are getting pretty achy from the ArA. I don't want to stop taking it, but if this gets worse I might have to No muscular pain, it is more joint/tendon I think. And it's not pain so much as discomfort.

    Anyway, I'll be glad to come back harder on Monday for the next cycle of 5/3/1. Monday will be OHP with accessories. I plan on destroying my delts with the delt destroyers instead of just rear delt dumbbell raises.

    I'm still staying regular with the PF3 usage, but my gut seems to be stabilizing a bit. This is good. Not sure if I am going to jump back up to three scoops or not next week, or just stick with the pre and post two scoop scheme that I have done this week. I'll play it by ear.

    Here's my last deload workout:

    Barbell Squat:

    75 lb x 5 reps (+44 pts)
    95 lb x 5 reps (+50 pts)
    115 lb x 5 reps (+57 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C1, W4, D4: And deload week is done. This ArA is making my leg inflammation kinda uncomfortable so far. I'm about halfway through the 50 day cycle of it, maybe I will get used to it. Hip flexors felt especially tight.

    Leg Press:

    135 lb x 15 reps (+23 pts)
    135 lb x 15 reps (+23 pts)

    Once again, using just the weight of the plates. 60s rest between sets. Halved the number of sets for deload.

    Leg Extensions:

    25 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)
    25 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)
    25 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)
    25 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)

    Easy, had to really focus to even feel these!! 60s rest between sets.

    Seated Leg Curl:

    30 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+9 pts)

    Same thing here. So easy that I had to squeeze really hard to even feel anything. 60s rest between sets.

    Sit-Up:

    15 reps (+7 pts)
    15 reps (+7 pts)

    90s rest between sets. Halved the number of sets for deload week.

    Seated Calf Raise:

    135 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    135 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)

    Good calf burn, halved the sets for deload week. 60s rest between sets. I feel like I need to switch these up, not getting a good ROM here. Maybe Barbell Calf Raises?

    Shoulder Dislocation:

    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)

    Foam Rolling:
    10 min (+18 pts)

    Same as yesterday: piriformis/glutes, quds, IT bands, hip flexor, upper back

    Stretching:

    10 min (+2 pts)

    Same as yesterday: Calves, quads, hamstrings

    Awesome detail on your log when explaining the exercises, I think that is great. Second day of PF3 with no whey and I can already tell I'm less bloated and more drier! This stuff could be lethal

    Ready to hit the gym in the morning to start my new 5/3/1 cycle!

    No soreness at all from last week, but I didn't really expect any

    I'm taking a probiotic every day in addition to PF3. Can't say I've had the GI issues some in here have had. Good luck with the 5/3/1; you have everything well-planned as always!

    That definition really does make a huge difference once you peel off some fat/water. Muscles take on their true shape.

    Yeah, I'm feeling a bit better now with the weekend rest and deload week.

    I'm not dosing my ArA on rest days, only pre-workout right now. Maybe I should up mine to 6 as well. I'm going to see how I feel after today's brutal workout

    The GI issues seem to be going away for me. I'm back up to three doses on workout days (pre, post, intra), so I'll see if it recurs with the upped dose.

    Update: 9/9/2013

    Back at it, starting my second cycle of 5/3/1 Bodybuilder this morning. Feels good to go heavier and more intense than last week. I felt pretty strong, and my pumps/vascularity were out of this world today! I actually ate a few more calories than I intended over the weekend, but I'm sure it will be fine

    My muscles are feeling very full lately, and I seem to have more veins becoming visible every day. I guess eating almost 4,000 calories a day will do that for you. I don't seem to be gaining a lot of weight, either, which is really awesome. Once again, I will weigh and do my BF% on Thursday. I can't wait to see what it reveals!

    GI issues seem to be fading away with time, and I am feeling pretty good. My workout was after about 4 and a half hours of sleep last night, because my son decided to bust a glowstick and get some of the stuff in his eye. So, we had to make an ER trip last night at about 8PM and didn't get home until after 11PM. Got to bed about midnight and up at 4:30 to hit the gym.

    Luckily, he is fine and no permanent damage done!

    In my workout today, I decided to throw in some delt destroyers, and am I glad I did! Thanks for the suggestion @niners4reggie! The pump and burn were crazy!

    I tried upping the weight on all of my accessory movements, but went a little quickly on a few of them. I'm going to drop back down to get my full ROM on them next week. I did feel stronger, just wasn't up to the full reps on every set with the added weight yet.

    Here's my workout for the day, it took me a little over 45 minutes, and I was sweating pretty good by the end. My biceps and shoulders were so pumped by the end, that it was hard to move them I am excited to see how much DOMS I have, because I did indeed destroy my delts!

    Workout

    Standing Barbell Shoulder Press (OHP):

    50 lb x 5 reps (+51 pts)
    60 lb x 5 reps (+54 pts)
    75 lb x 3 reps (+48 pts)
    80 lb x 5 reps (+62 pts)
    90 lb x 5 reps (+67 pts)
    100 lb x 10 reps (+84 pts)

    5/3/1 Bodybuilder C2, W1, D1: These felt really good. My all-time PR is 11 reps, but I didn't push it. Last two sets had 5 minutes between them.

    Face Pull:

    50 lb x 10 reps (+20 pts)
    50 lb x 10 reps (+20 pts)
    50 lb x 10 reps (+20 pts)
    50 lb x 10 reps (+20 pts)

    Added 5 lbs. to these. Good, clean reps. 90s rest between sets.

    Standing Dumbbell Shoulder Press:

    30 lb x 12 reps (+54 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+54 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+54 pts)
    25 lb x 12 reps (+50 pts)

    I think I added 5 lbs. a bit prematurely to these. The last set was a grinder at the end. Still decent, and a great delt burn! 90s rest between sets.

    Bent-Over Rear Delt Raise:

    30 lb x 30 reps (+25 pts)
    15 lb x 30 reps (+23 pts)
    8 lb x 10 reps (+18 pts)

    Not sure how to log these on here, but they are the "hang and swing" rear delt "destroyers". First time time these, I might drop the weight a bit to get 60 reps on the first set next week. My god, these burn! The first two sets were the partial ROM hand and swing, last set was full ROM with a 2 second squeeze at the top.

    Dumbbell Bicep Curl:

    25 lb x 12 reps (+28 pts)
    20 lb x 12 reps (+27 pts)
    20 lb x 12 reps (+27 pts)
    15 lb x 12 reps (+26 pts)

    Once again, I think I might have upped the weight too quickly. Next time I will stick with 20# and hit all four sets with that weight. Nice squeeze at the top on each rep. 90s rest between sets. These were standing, alternating arms. Biceps are a weak point of mine, as I just really started directly training them within the last month or two.

    Shoulder Dislocation:

    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)
    10 reps (+5 pts)

    Successively narrowing my grip each set.

    Stretching:

    10 min (+2 pts)

    Glutes/piriformis, calves, hamstrings, quads

    Foam Rolling:

    5 min (+9 pts)

    Should have done this a bit longer, but I hit my piriformis, IT bands, quads/hip flexors and upper back

    I liked them too! I'm going to drop the weight on the first set and try for 60 partial ROM reps, like they recommend. Then the 30 partials and 10 full ROM.

    Guess what? No shoulder soreness today!!!!!

    Hard for me to get used to no crunchiness in my shoulders since I've been doing PT rehab. What am I to do with myself? Besides destroy my shoulders again...
