    Yeah, good news is I got all my data this time so just an inconvenience. I will definitely keep up with the log .

    I think occasional lightheadedness is not a big deal after a really intense set, but I am due for a lower-intensity week anyway, so will stick with that plan.

    Solid pull day, nice PR's!!
    Yeah I am having bad luck with appliances in general recently. I ran diagnostics and I think the problem is unfixable so I should get a new one instead of a repair (never want a refurbished hard drive...recipe for disaster). Oh well...to the gym!

  4. Leg day workout report:

    Today was my first day taking it easy. I went to the gym, did cardio, and then decided on some lower-intensity stuff to do. I decided to superset bulgarian split squats with stiff-legged deadlifts with low weight and short rest periods. After the first superset I remembered that I hadn't worked in a calf exercise so I changed to a 3-way superset scheme including calf raises. I did 60KG on dead lifts, 100lbs on calf raise machine, and 40-lb dumbbells with split squats. I was running late for BJJ so I had to do everything really fast. My rep scheme was 10 stiff-legged dead lifts, 5 split squats per leg, and 10 calf raises holding the last one for 10 seconds. I ended up doing 14 sets in under 20 minutes. I was surprisingly tired after and actually felt like it was a great workout. Then I went to BJJ and did 6 6-min rounds with 1-min rests. Overall I feel great. Well-worked and tired, but not exhausted. Perfect way to start a week of dialing it back .

    Best,
    Tyler

  5. Well, that "light" leg day was definitely not as light as I thought. I can barely freakin walk haha. I guess the 3-way supersets and short set breaks hit me really hard. I will keep that in mind in the future, as that workout only took like 20 min. and I haven't been this sore since I started doing legs hard again.

    Computer is back, though, which will make posting much easier!

    Pushing day today (taking it easy, of course). Workout report will be coming in a few hours.

  6. Workout report for Monday:

    Even though my leg day ended up taking far too big a toll on my body for a "light" day, I set out tonight to take it easy on myself. I think I came up with a workout that pushed me just enough, but not too much, and will allow my CNS to recover before going hard again next week. I did sets of 5 with gradually increasing rest periods from 30 seconds to 2 min between sets, and I did 4 exercises. Cardio tonight was just a 5-10 min brisk walk on an eliptical on low resistance so that my legs can continue to recover from Saturday's accidental leg attack . Here are my numbers:

    -Barbel bench press: sets of 5 at 60, 70, 80, 90 KG, and got 3 with 100KG before my spotter kicked in. Normally I would have been upset that he spotted me, but I would not have been able to get it without straining much harder than I want to this week (if at all)
    -Dumbbell incline bench: sets of 5 with 60s, 65s, 70s, 75s
    -Smith military press (assuming the bar was still 20KG): sets of 5 at 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 KG
    -Cable triceps press: sets of 5 at 120, 140, 160, 180

    I made sure not to go all out on these, as that would defeat the purpose of what I am going for this week. I feel that I got a good enough workout to feel like I went to the gym, but wasn't my usual zombified, drenched-in-sweat-and-scaring-everyone self that I have been for the past 4 weeks.

    BJJ was really fun, as I am both uninjured and had more endurance than I normally would after one of these logged workouts .

    I also ate more carbs than normal today, as I had a banana before my PWO meal. The small increase seemed to keep me a bit happier than I have been.

    I have a question for the MN reps. I know that ABE has huge GDA effects in me and keeping carbs not-too-low helps its effectiveness and still allows for fat loss. I have heard that slightly higher carbs are recommended for ArA as well, but I am unsure why this is the case. Does ArA also have some GDA effects, or is there some other reason? Does it generally allow a small increase in carbs while still providing fat loss? Please advise at your leisure. I think I will keep carbs slightly higher this week to assist in both CNS support and my sanity . I am starting to get strong cravings for sweets (and other carbs to an extent) the past few days, which I think will go away by raising carbs a little at the appropriate times. I will still keep them very low on non-workout days, but not quite as low as I was, and will raise slightly before workouts on workout days. Please let me know if this seems supportive to ArA's effects. Thanks and thanks to everyone for following!

    FYI although looking much larger, I am 2KG down so far (going by averages both upon waking at home and before workouts at the gym, monitored constantly).

    Best,
    Tyler

  7. Not sure of the exact mechanisms or why, but I always seem to do better with more carbs on ArA.

    Good enough for me [looking for an excuse to up my carbs] ! Do you normally put fat on fairly easily with med-high carbs (I was a 260-lb teenager prior to changing my lifestyle)?

    Although if anyone has anything more detailed please throw that at me, too .

    Thanks, Sean!

  9. Great job transforming yourself by getting into the fitness lifestyle!!

    I too also handle carbs a lot better when on X-Factor, I can afford to eat more and they go right to produces skin tearing pumps rather than a spare tire around the midsection haha.

    Nowadays I do extremely well on a pretty high CHO diet. Several years ago...not so much, but even back then ArA did seem beneficial to increasing my intake of CHO.

  11. Honestly, I've never tried to increase carbs much when on ArA, just protein. I'll have to try it on my next run.

    Thanks, guys! I guess I will increase just a bit this week and then decide what to do from there.

  13. Breaking news. Just got my package from PES (TW Post couldn't read the address at first so delivery took a looooooooooong time), and they sent enough ABE for 8 weeks, so I am back on the good stuff for the remainder of this log! They also sent more GMS in case I run out of what I have now. Super generous company. Thanks so much, guys! ABE + XFA for 8 full weeks. Hell yeah!

    Thanks also to Wojtek as well for fronting me a bottle from his stash to start the log with; it'll be coming back to you today, bro! Soooooooooo psyched!!!

    FYI, if you thought my past results were epic, just wait until you see these before/after results!

    Best,
    Tyler

  14. Yaaa! Kicking it into overdrive now.

    Hell yeah! Bumping up my XFA dose, got another month of ABE, and my KNO3 is here so I don't have to taste NsNO3 anymore! I think I might even have some agmatine laying around to throw in on WO days. It's gonna be a good month indeed

    Agreed, through more volume in my training and more muscle maturity, my body needs more calories and carbs now than it did even when I was a teenager.

    was on 5 per workout, now up to 6 since Monday of this week. I may or may not increase to 7 in two weeks

    6 should treat you nicely, Ive actually never gone above 6 per workout.

    Yeah I was surprised to see people talking about 2g PWO (which would be 8). Honestly not sure if I will have any reason to go higher than 6...heck, even 5 was amazing.

  21. Great that you got your ABE in. Really looking forward to seeing your gains from this cycle!!

  22. Wednesday workout log:

    I had another lighter day (boring, but it'll help in the long run) today and I think I chose some good exercises.

    Chainsaws: sets of 5 with 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 100s with 30-second rests and long negatives
    Super wide grip pulldowns: sets of 5, 5-second negatives (longer rests as I was working in with two other guys): 71KG, 78KG, 85KG, 92KG
    Cable Curls: sets of 5, five second negatives: 80, 100, 110, 120
    Face pulls: 80 x 10, 10, 10
    Reverse-grip barbell curl on straight barbell (no thumb): sets of 5 with 5-second negatives: 15KG, 17.5KG, 20KG, 25KG

    Only had time for cardio OR BJJ as tutoring ran late. BJJ won, so cardio was just a 5-min jog to warm up.

    BJJ was good. I got a good hour+ of rolling with lots of good guys.

    I am starting to feel pretty bored in the gym with the lighter routine and am really excited to get back into it hard next week.

    I think I am putting on a slight amount of fat this week, but nothing serious and I think it will come right off (and then some) when I start getting back into my rest-pause training.

    My legs are still sore from last Saturday...I guess I really screwed up my "light day" haha. I had no idea that would hit me as hard as it did. I guess I better take it a little easier on legs next Saturday.

    As always, thanks to everyone following!

    Best,
    Tyler

    Thanks man. I won't disappoint!

  24. Im sure the BJJ is a much tougher workout and burns more calories than traditional cardio, good choice!

    Ive never done any martial arts training, but it must be rough after a brutal workout with the weights.

    Yeah definitely, but having less energy and strength makes me actually have to learn something . I recommend you try it if you ever get the chance. It is amazingly addicting!
