    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.

    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...

    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.

    Word of caution my friend - don't dose your ECA to close to Stimul8.

    I know how you feel. Lack of sleep last night, and not enough to eat throughout the day left me feeling very empty when it was time to hit the weights. My run took so much out of me.

    I was thinking Stimul8 at 0420-0430, and the ECA between 0630-0700. You think that's spaced enough?

    I didn't take it the wrong way.

    I didn't think the two would interfere with each other, as far as logs go. Stimul8 was what prompted me to want to run a post-wo Thermo, and eca makes me feel funny.

    Does it make you feel funny too?

    I think I was crashing hard also, and it was making me irritable.

    No, doesn't make me feel funny at all. I actually like it and I also like ECY.

    It can make me irritable though.

    Level II is still going great. Figured I'd jump back over here for an update that is not supp related...

    So, I took the Docs advice and went and got the Dr Scholl's inserts for my boots. I immediately felt (some) relief, and knew over time it'd feel a lot better. Well, it gradually did but never 100%.

    So, I ran yesterday for the first time in a while and today my IT band/Achilles feels like it did before the inserts. I guess I'm stuck to the elliptical or bike for cardio until it's 100%. That drives me crazy. I hate them both.

    That's why I don't do cardio period: I hate it. I'll just lift weights faster if I wanna increase my caloric expenditure.

    Give it a couple of weeks and try again. I am horrible with an elliptical. Everytime I have tried one - it just doesn't seem to work for me lol

    I wish I could use this method. But I feel the need to run. Mind you I also don't mind going for my runs (ok not so much in this sh*t weather!)

    Yeah if you like it go for it! Something about cardio I've always hated; I can't recall a single time I enjoyed it. It's either boring & not remotely challenging or it's boring & excruciating, but never rewarding for me. I know avoiding cardio isn't healthy, but I often have to remind people that there's nothing inherently healthy about wanting to lift 800lbs.

    I lift quicker also, but the 1 on 1 off sprints feel good to me. I like the HR spike, an overall I feel better throughout the day.

    Slow runs drive me nuts. Sprinting, and decreasing the break time in between makes me feel accomplished.

    My issue with the elliptical is that I fatigue my legs way before I feel it in the HR. Also, the swing of the elliptical feels like it could push my knees past the comfort zone when trying to 'sprint' on it.

    I rarely hit the elliptical. My cardio is usually the "boxer's workout" I would much rather hit something or slam something than swing my arms and legs back and forth and not go anywhere lol

    I used to live the KenpoX workout with p90x. I'd do the punches with weights; felt great.

    I no longer have that video, but we have punching bags at my gym. Can you and @kenpoengineer help me out with some quick boxing/Kenpo cardio-routines?

    When I went through my huge weightloss phase and for a while there after I did 30 minute head bag routine. Would sweat my ass off... was great. But then I moved and have no where to hang it as the garage is 'finished'. I need to by a stand as you are right terrific working and fun as hell.
