Gmanall takes on X-Gels/Anabeta OG/GMS

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Day 12

    Weight: 211.6(+2.2)

    Got to the gym for leg day, felt like a good session was about to puke by the end. They are a lagging body part for me that I need to bring up, my hamstrings are fine(From all the deadlifting) but my quads leave a lot to be desired. Now that I've out grown all my skinny jeans I got no reason not to hit them hard....and yes I do/did wear skinny jeans....don't judge...

    I am considering cutting my calories down to maintenance for more of a recomp, my BF% is already up there and I think I might be able to hit 405 DL by the end of this on a recomp which is my main goal. Any suggestions?

    Leg Press: 10x180,270,360,450 8x560

    DB Farmers Walk:55,65,80

    Single Leg Extension: 10x55,65,75,85

    Calf Raise:3x10x90(Would've gone heavier but was feeling weak and nauseous)


  2. you'll get to 405 no problem man. it seems like for a lot of people, they get to 405 relatively quickly and then it's a struggle for every 10 pounds after. in my experience the best way to set a new pr is to NOT try and max out every week which a lot of people seem to do with the deadlift. focus on solid rep work n you're golden.

    Yeah, 405 is easy for most people, and I'll feel like a weakling until I hit it lol. People who weigh 170-180 deadlift 405+ and my fata$$ at 210 can only do 370, but as the saying goes "We're all gonna make it!" And I've come a long way in the past couple months to complain to much.

  4. Day 13

    Today's workout wasn't the best, I missed my last rep on bench by a couple of inches. I miscounted my first working set and used more weight then I should've, I grounded it out and I think that's why I missed the last strength set. I've been having trouble getting in the "zone", especially on chest day. Maybe I need to switch my Pre, get new music or maybe now that I'm hypo it's sucking my motivation.

    Bench:5x95, 5x120, 5x145, 5x190, 3x205, 1x225(Failed, I've hit this number before), 3x10x120

    Pec Deck:10x75,85,95,105,115,125

    Incline Hammer Press:10x85,95,105

    Tri-Pushdown:10x90,100,110, 8x120


    Week 2 Summery:

    Anabeta and ARA Effects:
    Increased Hunger
    Minimal Carb/Water Weight
    All Day Pump and better workout pump
    Increased Acne/Oil Face(I take prescription cream, but even then I still have been getting a lot more)
    Vascularity(Minimal because of BF% but still noticeable to me)
    SUPER SORENESS

    While these are good signs I've yet to see body composition changes or any major strength changes but it's only been 2 weeks and I still got 6 more weeks. I'm dropping the calories to around maintenance to hopefully recomp/cut and see some progress.

  5. Day 16

    Hit the gym today, glad the weekends over and I'm able to hit the iron. I was able to hit the OHP numbers but not go above on the last set. Doing front raises today was awesome, veins were more prominent this week and I got a full pump that made side laterals a bitch. On a side note I may have my first client today, it'll be interesting to say the least.

    OHP:5x75, 5x90, 3x145, 5x120, 5x140, 5x155, 3x10x95

    Front Raises: 10x25, 2x8x35

    Bent Over Flys: 3x10x15

    Side Lateral: 3x10x15

    One Arm Pushdown:10x30,40,50,60, 8x70

  6. Day 17

    Starting to lean out faster, I seem to be maintaining/slight increase in strength despite dropping weight which is good. The super DOMS is beginning to go away(Or I've gotten used to it) but now I'm beginning to notice I'm sweating more, this workout I completely drenched my JACK3D shirt. I also miscounted the weight on my last set....was supposed to do 5x335 but did 5x345 but I can't complain about that.

    Deadlift: 5x160, 5x200, 3x235, 5x255, 5x295, 5x345

    One Arm Row: 3x10x55

    Lat Pulldown: 10x 100,110,120

    EZ-Bar Curl:8x 50,60, 70

  7. lol that's funny man, I've done the same **** with miscounting/forgetting to take weight off and at the end you're like "wow". definitely a big part of lifting is mental toughness. good progress tho, if you hit 345 for 5 today, honestly you're already at a point you could pull 405.

    Nice work dude I have noticed an increase in gym sweating with this stack as well

  9. Week 4: Update

    Sorry I haven't updated the log in a bit, interviews, applications and potential clients(And maybe a little GTA 5) have been sucking up a lot of time. On the last week!!!!! So far it's been good, I've noticed more shoulder muscle outlines and veins in my forearms, nothing to crazy because of my BF%. The sides are starting to decrease(Hunger and soreness) but are still noticeable, I also have been having sore elbow joints the past week. With the decrease in calories I shed my water weight(4-6LB) and am now 206. No fear thou as this week ends my strength portion in my periodization and starts my volume/mass building period and I'll up my cals slightly again.

    I'll try to update through the week more consistently but I can't promise, I didn't think I'd be so busy lately but gotta put in the work. I will do my reviews and ending pics at the end of this week. I'll try to hit 405 tomorrow just for $hits and giggles, but if I can't make it I can't complain about the strength gains made in 4 weeks.

  13. Great workout today, was able to have the gym to myself so shirtless cable flys ensued. With the great pump today I couldn't resist. Also weight is 206.2 with some more water weight, and looking leaner and swoler than before. Just when I think I'm getting used to the soreness it hits again, my back and traps were super sore today.

    Offtopic: Was offered a full time job in gym sales, but with crappy base (If I earn base in commision still lower the minimum wage). But a job is better than no job, anyone have experience/advise in this area?

  14. if you want to work in the fitness industry and it's a nice gym then take it man. I worked at the front desk for 6 months, gotta get your foot in the door somehow...

  15. What's up? Just got back from a couple day hike in the rain and mud, my lower body feels like death. Didn't help the I had a 40-50 pound bag on my shoulder. I'll write my final write-up and pics tomorrow.

  16. Goals: I started this log at 209.4 and as of today I sit at 210.4(+1), might not look like a big difference but considering I cut to 204 and got back up and then some I think it's better than I expected(Although some of the shifting weight can be attributed to water/carbs).

    My goals for this log are as listed:
    Bench: 2x225(Didn't reach, but considering my chest is my weak spot and it was more of a bonus goal)
    Deadlift:1x405(This was my main goal, started 6x325(E1RM=377) and was able to quickly add more weight and by the end hit it)
    OHP:1x180(Again mostly a bonus goal, didn't feel safe enough to try and attempt it, I've had some shoulder/joint problems and it began acting up)
    Weight: 215(Change of goals)
    BF: Maintain or decrease(Decreased)

    Supplements: X-Gels, Anabeta OG and GMS

    Noticeable Effect's
    --------------
    DOMS
    Increased Acne
    Increased Hair Shedding*(Can't confirm which supplement, or if it is. Might be because I had to use more acne medicine to combat the increase. But it was noticeable)
    Increased Sweating
    Joint Discomfort
    Increased Hunger
    Harder Pump
    Recomp Effects
    Strength Gains
    Retaining Muscle
    Slight Increase in Vascularity
    Lower Libdo
    Slight Mood Change*(Might be that I'm more hypo now)
    ______________________________ _____________
    Overall: Don't know how well it'll show in the pics, but I can tell myself that I've dropped 1-2% BF(Self Pinch Test, Thigh size shrunk which is where I store a lot of BF) and added a pound to the scale(So I'll ballpark 3-5 LB Lean mass gain). For a month progress I can't ask for much more!

  17. Afters:
