    Yesterday I dosed 1/2 scoop of Stimul8 around 4pm to get a sense of appetite suppression on a rest day. Had dinner around 6pm and only was able to eat half my plate, which was interesting. Stored the rest in the fridge for later in the evening. Ended up having a protein shake around 9pm and kept my leftovers for a nice chicken, rice, broccoli lunch.


    Started this day off with a 5km fasted run through the park.

    Going to start a bit of a deload today that will carry through till the 18th or 19th where I will likely start a new program. Thinking of going back to either FST-7, Mountain Dog, or a Push/Pull/Legs style. Next update will be this evening after my workout.

    Ya a full scoop first workout is strong. I can handle it fine, but finding 3/4 of a scoop works just as well for me.

    Well, due to working late last night - I was not able to lift. So going to maneuver things around for the next 4 days to ensure I get my last 4 workouts in before I had to South Carolina. I will check out what the hotel there has for a fitness room and get 3 workouts anyway in next week.

    This morning did Back/Shoulders, tomorrow moving Legs to Friday so I can do Chest/Arms tomorrow and Upper body on Saturday - of course this is all in a deload phase.

    Day 4: Back and Shoulders Hypertrophy - Altered for Deload

    Warmup: 5km fasted run. Dosed 3/4 scoop of Stimul8 just before heading out the door.


    Bent Over Row Speed - 30 seconds rest
    100x10
    100x10
    100x10
    100x10

    - this felt more like a warmup, yet really good. Shortened the rest periods throughout my workout which in turn got my heart rate up a bit as well. Not sure if this would follow a standard deload protocol but I did not feel as taxed at the end of the workout, so worked well for me.

    Pulldowns (wide grip) - 30 seconds rest
    180x12
    180x12
    180x12

    Seated Rows - 30 seconds rest
    110x12
    110x12
    110x12

    One Arm Dumbbell Rows - no rest
    50x15/15
    50x15/15

    Close Grip Pull downs (Palms facing) superset with Strechers - no rest
    160x20 / 140x20
    160x20 / 140x20

    - lno change in wait here, just with less load prior it seemed easier

    Seated Dumbbell Press - 45 seconds rest
    40x15
    40x15

    - Even with a bit less weight, my shoulder was still nagging me. So tomorrow will likely go quite light on all pressing.

    Upright Rows tri-set with Straight Arm Pulldowns and Facepulls - no rest
    80x10 / 90x10 / 90x10
    80x10 / 90x10 / 90x10
    80x10 / 90x10 / 90x10

    - Actually added the straight arm pulldowns here, as I just felt I needed a bit more work, and energy from Stimul8 and two days off was through the roof.

    Lateral Raises superset with Dumbbell Shrugs - no rest
    20x20 / 50x15
    20x20 / 50x15
    20x20 / 50x15

    This workout flew by. Great pace, and everything was on point.

    On a side note I dosed Stimul8 at 745am. It is 1:21 and my energy levels are still up and no hunger yet. I did have 50g shake post workout.

    Good workout. Shoulder was still bothersome but with the lighter load much better than last week. Stimul8 had me clipping along at a great pace. Dosed 4 hours ago, still enjoying the tail end of this ride.

    As mentioned yesterday I needed to move things around this week so tomorrow is Day 5: Legs, then Saturday will be upper body power.

    Thanks @Montego1 for the deload advice mentally feeling much better.

  18. Sorry your shoulder is still bugging you. How much are you deloading by? Depending on the day of the week for 5/3/1 (the weights are % based from a theoretical 1RM) my warmups are always 40/50/60% and then on to working sets. Deload week all you move is the warmup weight.

    Big lifts are about 60%... accessory 75% mind you.. arms today was pretty much normal.

    Ya my shoulder is something that has bothered me off and on for a couple of years now..hoping it goes away in the next week or two ..

    I was thinking the same thing. I saw 'deload', then your workout was intense. I thought I missed something!

  27. Yeah for a deload you sure are doing a lot of reps lol. Gotta make sure you lower reps as well as weight bud.

    If you're lowering weight but upping the reps then it's counter productive towards your goal of recovery. If you want to keep the reps in the 10-15 range so you get the pump then I would drop a set. (Speaking about the chest exercises as your already said you did normal arm routine.)

    I do not practice nor buy into the concept of these "deloads" as described here
    am aware that some programs such as 5/3/1 as has been mentioned here, are constructed with this form;
    however, remember I do not utilize "pre-set" routines, rather I create my own..
    I find that constant change in a variety of parameters, is all that is truly needed to recover/force growth cycle

    I hear ya Montego. I am sure this upcoming week (with a hotel gym) the deload will be just that...

    I am noticing that just going lighter but keeping the same reps. Or dropping say the 6 sets of 3 for 4 sets of 10 and lighter is revitalizing me and taking away some of the discomfort I was having.

    The last set got there, but felt really energized this morning. Possibly the stimul8, or maybe a combo of that and doing something a little different.

  37. I think deloads are best done when your body is asking for them. If you are getting really achy, or feeling really run down all the time then backing off will often help you recover. I don't think they are required by everyone but I do feel they can help a bit to increase longevity since the connective tissues get a break to recover.
