First log, sparing the long details I'll get down to facts: (if more detail is requested please ask, I'll do my best to answer)
Weight: 197 lbs (as of yesterday)
Lifting Exp: 6 years
Diet: High in protein, med carb intake, low-med fats (deployed so it's hard to maintain)
Workouts: Days are split into Legs, Chest, Back, Shoulders, 5x5 for each, 5x5 followed by a quick high intensity workout (xfit)
DAA pills from TS Nutritition
MAN Sports Pure PF3
MAN Sports Fermented
Whey protein powder (ON Gold Standard, Hydro Builder, Primal Protein) basically whatever I could scrounge up for good deals
Gain LBM, tone up before I get home and look good for my Wife, strength gains, size gains
Eat as clean as possible, goal is 5-6 small meals a day, high in protein, carbs primarily pre/post workout.
It will be an 8 week run, straight through, at recommended doses for all, will decrease EP dosage if estro starts to drop to low and I feel sick
Continue 5x5, supporting sets will follow to get a good pump, do my high intensity workout after a short (~5 min) rest.
Will post my workouts, weights, feeling, mood, noted differences in strength/physique as often as I can.
I've read a lot of logs where every little detail is micro managed, eating as clean as possible, having all of the macros in check, having some of the best supps around, and I totally RESPECT those logs, because that takes a TON of responsibility, professionalism, and accountability on the authors part. But I want to post a log that's not for the "ideal condition." Not everyone is in a situation that allows them to eat super clean, or have access to a 5 star gym. I've been working my butt of here trying to stay ahead and atleast keep my gains, but stress, poor diet options, and poor gym equipment have me lacking. SO I saved up some dough, did my research on a natty stack and some good supplements, some of which are new and YES I did indulge my curiosity to see if they work. Now it's time to put the work in and see if this investment pays out, I've been putting the work in, but you get my point. If anything this is a "Hard Work and Hope Cycle," to this point I've been able to maintain the same shape/physique I was in before I left the States, now I want to see if these supps can help push me beyond the limitations.
