    Gameday is top notch, throw in some Max Pump for some huuuge pumps.

    Whelp..... The intention was to get a leg day today, but I managed to get thrown by my motorcycle last night and got some nasty road rash on both of my knees. So they were both pretty stiff today. I decided to do some back instead and just took it easy.


    Back and Biceps

    pre-pre- 3/4 scp Tigers Blood Gameday + 1 scp Body Octane + last 3 Kno3 caps + 1 Analyzed Supplements 500mg agmatine cap


    intra- 2 scoops of MAN Figure Fuel

    chins (varying grips)- body weight x15, 15, 15
    1 arm db rows- 80 x10, 85 x10, 90 x10
    cable rows (wide bar)- 135 x10, 10, 10
    lat pull down (varying grips)- 150 x15, 12, 8, 12
    low back extension- 95 x15, 110 x15, 125 x15
    straight arm push downs- 120 x15, 15, 15
    barbell curls- 45 x15, 15, 15
    alt curls- 30's x10, 10, 10
    concentration curls (drop set)- 25 x8, 20 x10, 15 x15

    RECAP
    Not a bad work out, but not what I would've been hoping for 24 hours previously. My afternoon class was cancelled so I was able to sneak one a work out in then when I usually just have to go home and get ready for work. Mainly just went for contractions with shorter rest periods and slower eccentric motions. The pre-work out stack is pretty sick. Hopefully will be hitting some chest tomorrow night after my night class and I'll be dosing 3 Uncut + 2 MAX PUMP + 1-2 agmatine caps as an "on the go" pre work out stack.

    Uncut is pretty nice. I've had a bad head cold the last few days and haven't been able to lift since Friday, but I guess that's better than a bike mishap!

    Lol... Yes, but it wasn't really my fault. I was pulling out of an alley just taking off and the combination of cold tires + cold street + some loose gravel and some leaves kicked the back tire out and threw me. The bike ended up completely sideways in the lane a couple of feet away. I just picked it up and pushed it straight into a driveway.

    Chest & Triceps

    hammer strength dip machine- 140 x15, 15, 15
    cable kick backs- 30 x10, 10

    Recap
    I spent 22 hours fasted before training today. I wasn't able to get a lot of sleep last night since I had to work early. The combination didn't result in as good of a work out as I would have liked. I mentally had the alertness from the Uncut, but I was having problems getting the energy to really get going. I use to always warm up with 185, but took it down to 135 probably after the accident in May. I felt like a small pop in my left pec during the first set of bench and it lasted through the entire work out. On top of that both of my shoulders were popping and feeling pretty sore by the time I finished chest. I'm going to contribute that to a lot of things; including but not limited too low water intake, having not taking Orange Triad in a couple of days, not having taken cissus in a few days and lack of sleep. I'd also be lying if I said having been in the motorcycle wreck a couple of days ago didn't play into it also.


    Taking tomorrow off to let my body rest up and heal up. Been putting some thought into it and hopefully will get some downtime to do a mid-log review on everything here shortly. There are definite changes in my composition, and even my girlfriend that sees me on nearly a daily basis can tell and mentions it frequently. For the most part still feeling strong. Just got to get back in the groove from last week throwing me off.

    Lastly, I got a bottle of SNS Glycophase in today that I will be adding into my stack shortly (next couple of days). I'll be dosing one pre-bed and then another probably pre work out.

    Recap

    Worked today and was on the ground supporting myself a lot with my shoulders as I was working and my left shoulder was fairly sore/stiff. I tried to push through without pushing it to far. Wasn't nearly what I was hoping for, but still got some work put in at the gym anyways. Had to cut my weight and reps back from what I wanted.



    Planning to start up Glycophase tomorrow.

    Keep chugging bro, and don't push it. Let your body heal.
    How is the PF3 treating you as far as muscle recovery?

    Recovery is noticeably impacted by PF3. I had ran out and just a couple of new jugs in. I ran a jug back in the testing stages way before I was with MAN, not knowing what it was or what it was meant for, and immediately noticed that it helped with recovery. That was in the beta stages, and the product had since improved and is even better now.

    You have a fifty percent off coupon? I have been curious to try it but from what I've read the amount needed is a bit steep for myself.

    I would do 0i2 on off days and 2-4 on days you lift. Like creatine I don't take it religiously on off days.

    bench- 185 x10, 225 x5, 275 x2, 300 x3, 225 x10
    decline smith press- 220 x15, 250 x8, 290 x3, 160 x20

    Post work out- 5g creapure + 2 scps unflavored PF3 + 3g DAA

    RECAP

    Lifted with one of my Fraternity brothers today, which was a nice change of pace. I hate asking for a spotter, and don't trust people to even spot me well, so I lift almost entirely without one. Shoulder was feeling a lot better today, expect for the pullovers. Those seem to be a no-no. Not an epic day, but I had a few good sets in there that I was satisfied with. Looking pretty full and dry across my chest and especially in my delts. I think this is the leanest my triceps have ever been. They have a lot better separation now then they had in the past, but they've also come up quite a bit.

    Currently in the process of re-evaluating my diet and working with a buddy for some tips and tricks.



    Current Supplement Dosing/Timings


    Waking-
    200-300mg caffeine + 15mg Y CHL or 250mg C+ 25mg E
    2 Forskolin 95 caps
    2 Nolvadren XT

    +4-6 hours later
    EC or YC
    2 Forskolin 95 caps

    Before/with meals
    2 PR-XT (for a total of 6 caps a day)
    3g DAA with first meal
    3/3 Orange Triad
    2/2 Oximega fish oil
    1 Glycophase before highest carb meal

    Before bed
    4 HGHpro (trying to use up bottle)
    1 Glycophase


    Any input how I could do this more efficiently or etc would be appreciated.

    Nahhh Bro.. We lift. He's a pretty big dood considering we're both nattys. About the same size, but he's leaner than I am. He actually competes. I just try and get big and strong. Neither of us do abs.

    I honestly don't remember, and am currently unable to figure out how I got the MAN Up on there.

    Nice relaxing day of no work and no class.... these never happen, but I ain't even mad.

    Actually went and did some cardio today. I've been trying to incorporate some cardio, but it's hard to fit it in between class and work.

    Treadmill + 200mg caffine and 15mg Y HCL

    10 mins walking 1.5 incline / 3.0 speed
    10 mins light job 1.5 incline / 6.0 speed
    10 mins walking 1.5 incline / 3.0 speed

    Legs

    pre- 2 Uncut + 500mg agmatine + 1 scp Body Octane + 2g fermented leucine

    leg extension (warm up)- 30 x15, 15, 15
    squats- 135 x15 185 x10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
    leg extension- 90 x10, 10, 10, 10
    DB stiff leg deads- 30's x10, 40's x8, 50's x8
    seated leg curl- 180 x10, 10, 10
    lying leg curl- 95 x10, 10, 10
    standing calf raise- 90 x25, 25, 25
    seated calf raise- 90 x20, 15 45 x25

    post work out- 2 scps Unflavored PF3 + 5g creapure

    Recap

    Wasn't epic, but I'd also not been able to do a leg work out in +2 weeks, so endurance wise it was getting a little rough at the end. Had 3 caps of Uncut in my hand for the second time in a row and decided to put one back. My knees are feeling better, but I've still got some road rash healing up. I was literally squatting some of the scab off (sorry if TMI). Got the squats in and it wasn't to bad though. Had some Acute Muscle Soreness going on during the work out. By the time I was done I felt like I was walking out in slow motion.

    So since the 7th I've only lost 0.5-1lb, but I've lost another 1/2" off my waist and strength levels are maintaining well. I'd say I must have been doing something right. lol

    Not one of the words I'd ever used to describe myself. I think the amount of chest hair I have disqualifies me from that.

    I can't specifically think of any other time that I've been so mentally and physically prepared to lift as I was tonight... I didn't really have anything to do today, so I went and did some cardio for a about 25 minutes earlier, but I spent the majority of my day sitting at home watching TV thinking about tonight's work out.


    Delts

    Pre- ~1/2 scoop Gameday + 1scoop Body Octane + (2) 500mg agmatine caps + 5g Fermented Leucine


    Seated military press- 95 x15, 135 x5, 185 x4-5, 190 x3, 195 x4
    incline barbell bench- 135 x10, 185 x5, 5, 5
    DB lateral raise- 30's x10, 10, 10, 8
    pec deck rear delt- 120 x10, 10, 10, 9
    DB front raise- 20 x10, 25 x10, 30 x10
    cloes grip barbell shrug- 135 x25, 185 x20, 225 x15, 275 x5

    post work out- 5g creapure + 2 scoops of PF3 (I also add in 2 scoops of PF3 with my SAN Casein pudding + some Fermented Leucine)


    RECAP
    I was just wayyy in the zone tonight. I was originally only hoping for 185 x3 on the military press, but once I started pressing it I was so ready for it I pressed it 4-5 times. I was so surprised at how little I was struggling that I kind of lost count and couldn't remember if it was 4 or 5 reps. On my last set I grabbed a spotter, so I had a lift off and a little extra confidence, and it helped a lot. The last set of lateral raises was kind of pushing it. Overall I feel like it went pretty well. I only spent about an hour in the gym total.

    I feel like I'm finally getting back on track with my training. I'm ready for the gainzzz.

    Recap

    Just couldn't get moving tonight. Found a big win and lose as far as my pre work out nutrition goes. Yesterday pre work out after an ~18 hour fast I had a chicken breast wrap, 6 eggs and some steel cut oats 3 hours pre work out. Today I had the same thing, except for 1/2lb lean ground beef instead of a chicken breast, and only 2 hours pre work out. Well lesson learned.. 1) eat 3 hours pre or no later 2) no beef, stick with chicken. The last thing that contributing factor that I feel really screwed me was forgetting to eat a bagel last night and throwing me -50g carbs for the day, and especially after last nights work out. I just felt kind of empty lifting today like I only had 1/4 a tank. It was taking me a while to "recharge" for the next set, and I was feeling out of breath some.

    I'm chalking it up to a learning experience and getting back on it and will hit it even harder next time.

    Good to see you have your diet and timing dialed in. Who knew a bagel would have thrown you off so much?

    BTW, looks like proof that getting your protein from real foods > protein shakes. Def getting leaner with PF3; you must be one of those guys taking the PF3 challenge!

    The bagel comprises over 20% of my carbs for work out days though, and nearly all of thenm for my off days. Lol

    Not completely reliant on the PF3 as I still have casein I'm using. Once it's up I'll get some whey, but it's only used as a means to help hit my macros and cut down on the cost of food. The casein was so I could blend my oats with it, but it's thicker than anticipated so I only did it a couple of times.

    Pretty good work out. Was a little earlier than usual, but it worked out okay. Learning pretty early on it's going to suck going from off days (86g carbs) to fasted training. By the time I got to the flyes I could start feeling a pretty steady decline. Overall not to bad of a work out. I went in without a real idea of what I was wanting to do, which I don't often do, but I was satisfied enough with it.


    Got all of my calories in relatively quickly and will be fasted for the next 18-24 hours.

    It's now been enough time for the AS forskolin to kick in, along with adding in the GDA, my lipolysis has really seemed to have been dropped kicked into high-gear over this last week. Was looking pretty lean and dry upon waking this morning.





    I have discontinued the YC for now and am just sticking to 2-3 doses of EC. I'll throw the YC back in before to long, especially before days I am available to do fasted cardio. My last day of my first bottle of the Nolvadren will be tomorrow. Then I think I have 2 more days of HGHpro after tonight and I'll be starting Nimbus' new sleep aid, Abyss, this week probably. Everything seems to be on track right now, so I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing.

    Long day.. ended up sleeping through like the first 30 mins of my night class after working all day. Not a bad work out, but nothing epic. Had every intention of doing legs in the AM and staying fasted for 24 hours before Thanksgiving, but I'm probably going to end up working 7am-3pm at one job and then 4-1030PM at my other job that will make for a very long day. The gym won't be an option unfortunately. It's going to be a longgg day.

    Mehh day.. Had a headache for some reason as I was lifting that I couldn't shake that was a hindrance, and then I started thinking about how much homework and studying I have for this week and pretty much gave up and left. Didn't go to hard yesterday at Thanksgiving even though I had two separate meals. Took a Glycophase and 100mg agmatine before both meals. Stayed fasted for about 14 hours before the first meal, and then about 22 hours after the second today before I ate. Woke up and still had visible abs, so I didn't do to much damage. lol Was actually looking pretty full all day after feeling up those glycogen stores.


    Picked up some SAN Chocolate Graham Cracker Whey, Slin Sane V1, agmatine sulfate and another bottle of Yohimbine HCL today for my Black Friday deals. Already got the shipping confirmation. I'll add in the SSV1 once the Glycophase is out. Last night was my first night with Abyss Unparalled and I slept awesome, so definitely looking forward to continuing that; and tonight I'll be taking the Glycophase and Abyss.


    Now on to the homework.

    Didn't really have any intentions of lifting tonight, but once I got off work it seemed like the right thing to do. I had taken EC at 3 and was lifting at 5, so I didn't wanna take anything stimmed. Just popped a few caps and I was good. Spent about 20 hours fasted before lifting, no pre and hit legs last night and heavy deads still seemed like a good idea. Felt/looked pretty full and hard throughout the entire work out. Very obvious that I've leaned out some, but I have maintained my strength well, and even increased in some lifts. Was hoping for more on deads, either another rep or a little more weight, but that was the first time I had done them in weeks (since before laying the bike down).

    RECAP

    Spent about 20-21 hours fasted before going and training today. Sipped on some Figure Fuel throughout the chest portion of my work out. Usually don't ever have the opportunity to train 3 days consecutively, and when I am I always notice a difference in performance. Having done some fairly heavy legs Friday night and then heavy deads last night I was still a little stiff. I had done a few sets of abs last night after hitting back, and could feel it today whenever my core would flex. Overall wasn't to disappointed though. All I really wanted was to get in tonight and get some good sets in. For as fasted as I was I was feeling pretty full throughout the entire work out.

    I need to do some measurements and see where my weight and waist is, but I keep forgetting to do them when I get up or I'm just to busy to take the time to do it.
