  1. TGR's Cheetos Chraining


    This is my non-sponsored, nothing really specific, log. I'm not exactly sure what my immediate goal is; I suppose it's a slow fat loss without losing gains, but I haven't stuck to any specific diet in the last few weeks. Right now I've been at 2400-2800 calories/day, and my macros have been 30-35p/40-45c/20-25f. During training days, that is. Weekends I stay at around 2500 but don't count macros.

    I am 1.5 weeks in of trying to stay at high volume. My goal is 20-ish reps per set, but I haven't gotten used to the weight I need for that yet. I'm enjoying the pump and the DOMs. Oh, the DOMs!

    I'm thinking 4 total weeks of high volume, 2 weeks at a 5 rep max, 2 weeks at a 3 rep max, a week or two at 8-12 reps, then a deload. Maybe...

    My supplements right now are:

    FinaFlex Max Pump (2 w left?)

    Versa -1 (I am on day two of my first run. I saw a post wondering what it actually does, and since no one there knew I figured now would be a good time to find out myself)

    Modern BCAA's (x5g pre)

    Creatine Mono (NP; 2.5-3g)

    Gameday PWO by MAN (1-2 w left)

    Well, that's about all I've got! I'll adjust supps as I change them.

    Notes

    Some things I didn't repeat after the first set or two. I just wasn't feeling ANYTHING. I've been tired all week, but I didn't feel as though that was what was slowing me down. There are some personal things going on that is irritating the ish outta me, so I think that may be it. Unfortunately, it made me leave the gym 20m early instead of pushing me to hit PR's.

    0635-
    For my post meal I had 3 eggs and a 4oz ham/cheese sandwich.
    0800-
    I had a Granny Smith apple
    1000 to 1500-
    I have 1/4 avocado, 1/4 red onion, 16oz of baked chicken, 2 cups rice, 2 cups broccoli, and various seasonings all mixed together. That's my lunch meals the rest of this week.

    Tomorrow will be a better workout day.

    Thanks, man. My shoulders are my weak spot though. If there is ever a day to NOT bail, it's shoulders. It's all good though!

    Notes

    I haven't had bicep pains like that in a while.

    My diet was horrible today. I've just been hungry non-stop. I ate my normal clean foods, but stopped at the store and had pretzels, chips, 2 packs of granola bars, and about 1oz of peanuts. Fat city!

    Mmmm. I think I'm going to consume some Cheetos today before I start my carb cycle. I'd love to kill some doughnuts though.

  14. Struggling to get motivated this morning. I probably would go back to bed if I hadn't already started on coffee. I really should squeeze in more sleep on the weekends...

    Notes


    I got to the gym a little late this morning. Was so close to skipping, but I'm glad I didn't. No PR's today. Actually, I feel like I didn't do that much at all. I had a good quad pump, so we'll see if I have any DOMs tomorrow.

    So far my carb cycling is going ok. I'm not that cranky or too hungry with OEP thermo, but it is only day 1.

  16. OEP is good stuff, and I always had great results by taking it immediately after I work out. Feels like it keeps my heart rate up and burns more fat. You should graduate to 2 pills in a few days

    I took mine about an hour post-wo, then ate about 30 min after that. You think I should change that up? I was also thinking about when I go to two doses that I might try taking the first pre-wo, and the second right before noon.

    I really do like the feeling of awareness. It helps a lot on sleep deprived days. Looking forward to trying OxyECA Black again too!

    Well, you could take one pre workout, if you don't use a pre-workout. Did you read the bottle? Take 1 pill in the morning for days 1-3, then add a second pill about 6-8 hours later on day 4-7, then add another pill to the morning dose after that. Something like that. OEP is extremely effective (when combined with a good diet an exercise program)
    But all thermos are effective in a caloric deficit with exercise. I have known many dudes that would take their thermos and proceed to stuff their faces all day, and not do PT, all the while thinking that 'they are different' or this thermo must not work for them. People don't understand the concept behind eat less move more.
    "No, you're not special. You don't have a glandular problem. Your thyroid isn't underactive. And you aren't big boned!! You are just a fatty and you will stay a fatty as long as you keep thinking and acting like a fatty!!" -- there, I said it. I try to tell these jokers but most of the time they don't want to hear it. Yes, I work with people like this.

    I guess I got a little off topic here...

    Nah, I don't read directions much. Speaking of stuffing face, here's my daily intake:


    2,038 calories, 199p/81c/94f

    I am not starving, surprisingly. But, I'm usually my hungriest the first few hours after my workout and the OEP helped with that.

  20. I had four cases at court yesterday, had to play catch up afterwards, an had kiddos second football game (0-50 :/ ) last night, so I'll have to post yesterday's workout later.

    I woke up off and on all week, and about 0200 I decided I was sleeping in until 0500 and taking a rest day. It's my first rest day, not including my very unclean vacation in July, since February.

    I'm not going to lie, I feel great and well rested. I may get in a makeup Saturday before work, workout at home, or just not. Worst case I don't repeat a muscle group this week.

    Diet has been in par as far as my goals go. I accidentally hit 100g carbs yesterday via a damn banana; but hey, I made it through a football game without getting any cheats in. Today's carbs will be in the high seventies, and since I didn't workout I may keep my calories in the 1800-1900 range with my fats around 60g. I'm hungry as heck, but I'm already seeing my four upper abs come back through. This carb cycle may be shorter than I first expected.

  22. Abs!! Good stuff. Nothing wrong with a rest day. Honestly I think 5 days a week is too much when you are putting in work, and not 'on'

    Funny you say that, I've been wondering if I should either go to 4, or 5 with a 3 on, 1 off, 2 on, 1 off.

    Notes
    Ok, I'm back to 8-12 reps starting tomorrow. Also, I need to go back to mostly DB's on chest. I got a twinge that was very similar to the one I got several years ago right before I had to sit out for 8 months.

  25. Twinges in the shoulder area is not good. Nice session here. With the shoulder issues I'd drop the around the worlds IMHO. These can be very damaging.
