    Enjoy your "grow day"

    I tell myself that's what it is, but I can't say I don't feel lazy for not going.

    Are you trying to keep your back straight during the movement? I think I remember it doing this when I first started using one. Sometimes I use a wheel, sometimes I use a barbell. I feel it all over my core though.

    And yes, it uses your arms some too. Maybe even shoulders a little.

    As RJ said, keep your back straight. The little bit of back strain will improve as you use it. I love to hate the wheel-o-death! Lol. Sure does a number on the abs though.

    Yes I think the strain is from keeping my back straight, but perhaps that is all part of getting the core up to snuff. And yes to the shoulders. Glad to hear it isn't just me then.

    I think you'll grow to like them. Make sure you aren't "bouncing" off of the floor. I try to just barely touch the floor, and do slow negatives.

  10. Bicep pump 30min after leaving the gym, only 1 week into Max Pump!

    (Don't judge my belly. I've put on 15 since August and refuse to cut until February, at least. Most of it was gained when I was gone for a week for work and during my groin pulll

    Pre:
    Coffee + Protein (45-50 prior)

    Stimul8 x2/3
    Max Pump x4
    Crea-Trona x2

    SUPER SET 1:
    Only break is walking from one to the other, approx. 20 sec’s. Bathroom break after set 4

    Semi-Vertical Cable Curl 80 Tempo 4.0.2.1(hard squeeze)
    This is my first time trying these. I kneeled with my arm vertical, and did the curl behind my head. Took me a minute to see what weight to use, but I think 60 or 55 is where I should start next time.

    Set 1 : 50x10
    Set 2 : 50x10
    Set 3 : 50x10
    Set 4 : 50x10
    Set 5 : 50x10
    Set 6 : 50x10
    Set 7 : 60x10
    Set 8 : 60x9
    Set 9 : 60x8
    Set 10 : 60x9

    |
    Cable Rope Triceps Pushdown 120 Tempo 4.0.2
    *Pushing the rope as far back as by body allows. 90 is where I need to start next time.

    Set 1 : 70x10
    Set 2 : 70x10
    Set 3 : 70x10
    Set 4 : 80x10
    Set 5 : 90x10
    Set 6 : 90x10
    Set 7 : 90x10
    Set 8 : 90x9
    Set 9 : 90x8
    Set 10 : 90x7
    |

    SUPER SET 2:
    No break from Tri to Bi, 20-30 sec before repeating.

    EZ Bar Incline Triceps Extension 80 Tempo 4.0.2

    Set 1 : 50x10
    Set 2 : 60x10
    Set 3 : 60x10 +5 fast
    Set 4 : 60x10 +2
    Set 5 : 60x10 +2

    Should’ve done 70’s
    |
    EZ Bar Seated Close Grip Concentration Curl 66.67 Tempo 4.0.2

    Set 1 : 50x10
    Set 2 : 50x10
    Set 3 : 50x10
    Set 4 : 50x10 +2 fast
    Set 5 : 50x10

    Should’ve done 60’s
    |
    Notes:
    I also did behind the head, seated DB tricep press drop set, 70/55/40/25 max each; Inside hammer curl drop set, 40/30/25/20/15/10 max each, and twisting curl drop set 25/20/15/10 max each. I could barely place the DB’s back after these. My pump was crazy intense!!

    I didn’t notice the tingles today from Stimul8, I guess because I was in a hurry to get started, but I felt the “heat” take over almost immediately when getting to the gym (8 min after starting to chug the Stimul8).

  11. Volume is crazy just like the pump. Thank you for the detailed GVT log here. I'm thinking you might let me steal it in the future?

    Steal away! I make it up as I go, and change things based on what is available at the time... The tempo and set #'s are all that are constant, really.

  16. Almost 10 hours sleep last night and I onlywoke up twice. I took 5mg Melatonin around 10pm

    Pre:
    45min
    Lots of coffee
    Protein shake

    15min
    1/2+ Stimul8
    4x Max Pump
    4x Crea-Trona

    I didn't know what I was working out until I walked into the gym. I figured I'd see what everyone else was working and I'd do something else. There was the OHP rack sitting with dust, so shoulders it is.

    SUPER SET 1:
    15-25 sec rest between 1-2, 60 before restarting. It took 15s to walk to the rope, and up to another 10 sec to readjust the cable if someone moved it.

    Tempo 4.0.2

    Barbell Shoulder Press 139.33

    Set 1 : 95x10
    Set 2 : 95x10
    Set 3 : 95x10
    Set 4 : 95x10
    Set 5 : 95x10
    Set 6 : 95x10
    Set 7 : 105x9
    Set 8 : 105x9
    Set 9 : 110x8
    Set 10 : 105x8

    I'm going to go for 105 next week. I know this isn't much for most, but this has been a huge weak muscle for me, and ha always 'tweaked' my left shoulder in the past. It has not at this point and feels pretty comfortable.

    Cable Rope Face Pull 200

    Set 1 : 150x10
    Set 2 : 150x10
    Set 3 : 150x10
    Set 4 : 150x10
    Set 5 : 150x10
    Set 6 : 150x10
    Set 7 : 150x10
    Set 8 : 150x10
    Set 9 : 150x10
    Set 10 : 150x10

    170-180 next week, assuming I do pulls.
    |

    TRI SUPER SET, no breaks from 1-2-3, but 90s before restarting. These burnt like hell:

    NO TEMPO

    Delt Destroyers 106.33
    (approx 24" DB split on large weight, as wide as I can go on small weight; trying to focus on pulling my traps up)

    Set 1 : 50x28
    Set 1 : 15x10

    Set 2 : 50x30
    Set 2 : 15x10

    Set 3 : 55x28
    Set 3 : 15x10
    |
    Six-Ways 5.83

    Set 1 : 5x5
    Set 2 : 5x5
    Set 3 : 5x5
    |
    Horizontal Presses 6.67

    Set 1 : 5x8
    Set 2 : 5x7
    Set 3 : 5x8
    |
    Notes:
    Even with the more-than-typical bold coffee, I like the 2/3 scoop size. I still felt the warmth and had great focus, but honestly, I enjoy being drenched. I sweat a lot today, but was never drenched.

    Max Pump is starting to become a huge motivating factor. Watching my arms/shoulders blow up with every rep just pushes me past where my mind normally tells me to quit. A couple of those last OHP sets I tried for more and got some, and twice tried but lost to the support rack. Pushing me to try harder I a win no matter what in my eyes.

    Chest and/or Back tomorrow? Or legs...

    Nice work bro, and thanks for making me hungry

  18. Oh, I didn't log this so I forgot to add it:

    3 sets Max behind the back shrugs with 135/185/235
    2 sets Max plate-delt-raise with a 35#, going vertical.

  29. No update again today. Third straight day with no workout. I felt good about not missing a day last week, then all food broke loose over the weekend. This morning I just felt drained an under-nourished. My diet today has been back in check though.

    Just popped the Max Pump, and have my morning doses mixed up and ready for 0330.

    I decided to go against my 'no cutting till February' rule. I'm going to take advantage of the Thermo in Stimul8 and add ECA and drop back down to 180-185, then start again bulking. Shouldn't take but about 6 weeks to get there... 4 if I don't miss a step.
