  1. Good stuff. Nice squat session too. I can feel your burn!

    How are you liking the Versa-1?

    I don't know... Ive been very tired from lack of sleep and I'm not sure how that may be affecting the focus. I mean, I'm dog tired all the time right now and have been the last two weeks.

    I am super hungry all day. Not sure if that's from the versa...

  3. Versa has been known to make people hungry. Increased strength, focus, vascularity, muscle fullness have all been stated.

    My sodium intake may be screwing with the vascularity, but I definitely feel muscle fullness. I stopped the MaxPump Saturday, so that should wear off soon. I'll continue to run Versa 1 for another month solo and see how it does.

  5. I elected to sleep in today. My sleep was broken due to the dogs barking all night. I've been short on sleep as it is and I have two court cases today and it's an away game for kiddo tonight, so I would've ended up having a crappy workout tomorrow anyway. Hopefully this will help set me on track, and this Saturday will be the first in over a month that I'll be able to sleep past 5am.

    Oh well, this just means I won't be repeating legs this week.

    Oh man, I slept in also. My problem was my 5 year old with a fever. Nit a problem actually, but that is why I didn't sleep much. I am about to hit the sack right now.

  7. Sleep gentlemen, the iron will still be there tomorrow.
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:
    myBloodTracker for IPhone and IPad

  8. I wake up relatively wide-awake every hour or two to go to the restroom, but as soon as my alarm goes off I'm groggy as hell and battle to get up. Thank God for coffee.

    Has anyone tried Melatonin 5mg? I wonder if that's what's making me not want to get up. I don't have trouble sleeping really, but the melatonin helps a little to go back to sleep if the dogs wake me up.

    Any-who, I'm downing my bold coffee and executing a high volume BM right now, and I decided to do 1.5s Jack3D with my Versa 1 and BCAA's this morning before back and biceps.

  9. Melatonin does that to me if I use more than 2 mg. Try cutting in half ( I'm 5'6"). I read somewhere to make sure you take breaks from it.

    Typically we only take them 3-4 times a week. Does it require longer breaks?

    Cutting it in half is a great idea. The reason we got the 5's is because my wife barely sleeps.

    Looks like there is no evidence for tolerance building:

    I did cardio sprints before and after, and I think I'm going to start doing that every day again. Besides, that's better than lowering my diet...

    The 5's I have are gel caps. I have had 3's, but 5's are more effective IMO. More is better right?

    Notes

    I did sprints before I started and in between some sets, but my left Achilles is killing me!

    Strength sucked today. I picked up the 100's on flat and barely even half assed it. Not sure if I was being a sissy, if it was because of fear of my shoulder, or because I skipped dinner and ate no preWO. I definitely made up for it today. I have eaten non stop since I left the gym.

    Yeah buddy, getting your grub on!
    Nice workout. I need to do core!!

  19. Annnnd damn. Was up all night with what feels like a groin tear. Maybe i was landing on my right leg wrong trying to overcompensate for the IT band pain when doing HIIT yesterday?
    I figured since it was tricep day I could go in anyway. So, after waking up at 0315 and drinking 1/2 cup coffee, I went back to bed. I can barely walk it hurts so bad.

  20. That sucks. You are falling apart old man!

  21. Oh man! Groin pull is not fun at all. Heal fast!

  22. I'm headed back in the gym today. No lower body, including cardio, this week. Maybe not for a few weeks. I really need to stay 100% on point with my diet... The plan is 2586 cals, 224/253/68-89f. At least for today. If I can't work up a sweat super setting without a cardio boost, I might drop my evening carbs (about 205 cals).

    I am undecided on whether I'll use a PWO all week. This morning I'm doing 1x OxyElite Pro Thermo and 1.5x Jack3D micro just to give me a boost (Following coffee, of course). If I can stay motivated and on track without, then I'm back to the break period.

    No PRs today. My left shoulder barely participated, and my triceps didn't feel strong either. Probably mental from being out so much and not being able to do any warmup cardio. Good news: tomorrow is a new day.

    No, surprisingly. I did several groin stretches before hand, and did some SLOW bar only reps at first to see if I noticed any tweak and I didn't.
