    Delts


    Pre- 2 cap Uncut + 1 serving Max Pump + 2 PR-XT + 25mg E


    smith machine shoulder press- 70 x15; 110 x15; 160 x10; 180 x8; 200 x4, 4
    upright smith row- 70 x10, 15, 12
    DB lateral raise- 30's x10, 10, 10
    DB front raise- 30's x10, 10, 10
    DB rear delt raise- 55's x10; 60's x10; 65's x8
    BB shrug- 135 x15; 185 x12

    Post work out- 2 scps PF3 + 5g creapure

    RECAP
    I felt pretty on it tonight. I'm usually not a fan of the controlled motion of the smith machine for shoulder press, but they weren't bad tonight. Looking very dry and hard tonight. Vascularity is getting to an all time high.

    Having taken cissus or OT for a few days, and my hands started hurting by the end of the work out, and my grip started suffering so I kept it short on shrugs. Just had my last pack of "post work out poptarts". Switching the poptarts to another whole wheat bagel to slightly reduce my carb intake.

    Legs

    pre- 1/2 scp Gameday + 1 scp Body Octane + 5g Fermented Leucine + 3g Na Daa


    squats- 135 x15; 225 x10; 275 x8; 315 x6
    leg extension- 120 x15; 135 x15; 150 x12
    seated leg curl- 180 x15, 15, 15
    decline bench DB lying leg curl- 45lbs x15, 15, 15
    standing calf raise- 120 x15, 15, 15
    seated calf press- 380 (stack) x15, 15, 15

    post work out- 2 scps PF3 + 5g creapure

    RECAP

    Finished my Kinesology test quicker than I anticipated so I drove home and smashed my pre before a quick work out before work. The squats felt a lot better today. I was getting a lot more solid reps in than I had last week. Kept everything moving at a pretty quick pace since I had a limited amount of time before work, and I also had my girlfriend back in with me tonight which was a nice change of pace. She's been out for like the last two months with an injury. Cuts are starting to come in a little better now. in my quads. Nothing drastic unfortunately, but noticeable cuts nevertheless.


    Snapped another progress pic tonight. Wasn't expecting to see much of a difference, but my lower abs were noticeably less bloated. Also lower back fat seems to have gone down a bit also. Will upload the pic at some point soon. Pretty drastic changes from the first pic I snapped to what I snapped today even though my weight has hardly changed. I honestly think at this point I've dropped a higher percentage of body fat than I have total pounds lost (or at least close to the same but that's saying something still).

    Great work considering your most recent wipeout. I must have missed what happened to your gf, you say she was injured too?

    I'll look into them. What I'm eating now has 13g protein each. I got 6 for $1.89 at Kroger yesterday (Kroger brand whole wheat bagels).

    I never got the exact diagnoses, but I believe she had a slight tear in her bicep tendon where it connects in the shoulder girdle. My best guess is it happened as she traveled to Washington DC for a promotion pulling her suitcase through the airport.

    Top 3 favorite supps are Prometheus Rising, OG Body Octane and Nolvadren XT. That's been since before I was a rep even.

    Progress Pic 12/5/2013












    If you were to compare that pic to my last progress pic you'll notice my lower abs looking a lot less bloated and my lower back trimmed down some. Maybe one of these days I'll use an actual camera and not my phone.

    Goals were just recomping. No set goals really outside of trying to add some strength and lose some fat while maintaining muscle.

    Chest


    Pre- EC + PR-XT

    intra- 1 scp Body Octane + 3g Na Daa



    Incline barbell- 135 x15; 185 x10; 205 x8; 225 x4
    hammer strength incline press- 230 x8; 250 x6; 270 x5
    high cable flyes- 40 x15, 15, 15, 15

    Post work out- 4 Orotine caps + 2 scps Figure Fuel


    Recap

    Hit the gym around 1145am having to be at work at 1pm so I went in knowing I wasn't going to be able to do a lot of volume. I had every intention of hitting some power rack bench to try and get some heavy sets in, but my gym was packed this morning. There were a couple of guys on the rack doing some shrugs so I waited around a couple of minutes and did a set of incline to warm up a little before asking them how long they'd be. They told me 3-4 more sets, so at the rate they were moving I'd be leaving around the time they were finished so I decided to just wing it. I feel like I got a couple of good sets in in the short amount of time that I had. My chest was feeling really full and strong. Unfortunately it was one of those days I felt like I could go forever, but I had to leave to prep for work. I was really feeling the incline HS and the flyes. By the time I was finished with the flyes I was already starting to get some acute muscle soreness.

    It's okay. It was okay I guess it was just that much more mental fuel on the sets I did do.

    RECAP

    Felt pretty good and strong going into it today. Just wanted to put up some good numbers since my arms are usually wore out by the time I start training them so typically I'm focused on contraction. Vascularity is definitely at an all time high right now. I'm about to take my last PR-XT cap here shortly with my last meal for the day.

    Overall everything is going great so far. Not even done yet, and I've had better results that I had expected with this log. Now it's finals time unfortunately...

    Pssh... I'm taking a break. I'll keep my protein (including Fermented Leucine and Pure PF3) in for the macro boost, but I'm probably dropping everything else but the creatine and Body Octane. I need a break. Taking all that is to much work. The gains were epic, but I still need a break. lol

    Sneaked a shoulder work out in today to keep my sanity as I'm preparing for these last two classes to end.

    Shoulders

    pre- 3/4 scp GD + 3g Na DAA + 5g Fermented Leucine + 4 caps Finaflex Max Pump


    Intra- 1 sample pack of 360 Cut's intra

    Seated shoulder press- 135 x10; 185 x5,5; drop set 135 x10
    DB lateral raise- 30's x10, 10, 10
    DB front raise- 30's x10, 10, 10
    pec deck rear delt- 150 x8, 8, 8
    BB shrug- 135 x20; 185 x20; 225 x20

    Post work out- 2 scps PF3 + 2g Fermented Leucine

    Recap

    Got there a little later than I had intended. I was in and out of the gym in less than 30 mins.

    Felt pretty good on the presses today. At the start of the log I was at 185 x3 and since have added a couple reps for a couple of sets. I didn't look through all of my posts, but I've been trying to get my BB shoulder press up to 225 for a couple of reps. Intensity was up since I was in so much of a rush to get it in before I had to go home and get ready for work, but I still managed to knock out two sets of 5 reps on the presses with no spotter. The raises were feeling extra good today. Had a nice pump going and was feeling full. I felt like I was getting a better contraction than usual on these today. All in all not disappointed in the numbers at all considering how pressed for time I was. I think I'm a littler further a head on my studies at this point than I thought I would be, so if I keep it up and am feeling fairly confident tomorrow I may try and sneak another leg work out in.

    I think for the rest of the log, at least while fasted, I'm switching from ECa to YC at a 17.5Y+300mg C dose (caffeine may vary). Only a couple of more days of the Na DAA until it is also out. The end of the log is unfortunately quickly approaching.


    Now... back to that study grind and finishing my last meal.

    Couldn't find my log and was starting to think one of the MODs had axed it. lol Wasn't looking on the front page for it. haha



    Hit some back today after my Exercise Physiology final was over. By far the best course and instructor I've had this far in college. Luckily I have him again next semester for a Strength and Conditioning course.



    Back & Bis

    pre- 1 sample Blue Raz SAN Fierce Domination + 1 scp OG Body Octane +3g Na DAA + 5g Fermented Leucine


    T-bar row (chest stabilizer)- 45 x15, 15, 15 (alternating grips)
    Hammer strength Low Row- 180 x10, 10, 10
    Smith Machine BB row- 110 x15, 15, 15
    Lat Pull down (alt grips & widths)- 150 x15; 165 x10; 165 x10; 120 x15
    straight arm push downs- 120 x10, 10, 10
    ss cable rows- 60 x15; 80 x15; 90 x15
    Preacher curl- 75 x10, 8, 8
    DB Alt curls- 30's x8, 8
    DB Hammer curls- 40's x 10, 8
    DB concentration curls- 25's x8, 8

    Post workout- 2 scps PF3 + 5g creapure + 2g Fermented Leucine

    RECAP

    All in all not to bad. I was kind of up and down with intensity throughout the work out, just out of sheer mental exhaustion from studies/having just taken the final, but still felt pretty good about it. Not really a fan of the T-bar row machine as it is angled awkwardly for me and the chest pad can severely constrict my breathing, but it was decent to get the blood flowing. Really just focused on contractions today and getting a good pump going which worked out pretty well. Actually had a guy approach me and tell me how lean I'm looking and ask what I've been doing. Had some pretty solid vascularity going throughout the work out.

    I'm really liking IF and will stick with it once this log is over and start a slow bulk, but I won't hit it as hard. The GF isn't always the biggest fan, and I haven't been able to take her out much lately. To be fair we both work 3 jobs on top of going to school though so we typically don't see each other until late anyways. One more final come Monday and then I'm ready for some solid work outs for the next month as I will have a lot more free time with less responsibility.

    We have a supported t bar row machine at my gym.......I hate it for that exact same reason. Feels like my rib cage is going to collapse when using it.

    My old gym, RIP, had a basic T-bar row that was pretty much just the bar and two small platforms to stand on. It was epic. Everything about that gym was better though. lol

    Lol. Didn't even realize that I had forgotten to take it out. I copy/paste it to save writing them out.





    Anyways.. Na DAA ended yesterday. Would run again, especially only being $6-7 a tub. Only a few days left of the run and there are some undeniable body composition effects I've had. Will post before/after shots once the Nolvadren is officially done. I did just open a new bottle of Forskolin 95 though, so that will extend around a week over the Nolvadren probably. This is something I'd definitely run again, but I have two sealed bottles of Prometheus Rising that I need to tap into before too long and they'll be first. Had a couple of quick work outs I didn't log, but nothing special and I don't remember the numbers so I'm not going to write them out. Mainly just study breaks for peace of mind.


    On that note classes ended at 1:25pm today. Now I have about a month off.

    Only worked 5 hrs today and then I was off with no school and no responsibilites. Life is good. lol Currently watching my 3rd movie of the day (Prometheus [following Resident Evil: Retribution and Underworld: Awakening]). Since I had pretty much as much time as I wanted I took my time going to the gym and then doing as much volume I wanted to at the gym, which is a nice change of pace especially when I can hit legs.


    Legs

    pre- 2 caps Uncut + 500mg agmatine

    intra- 1 scoop BO + 5g creapure + 5g Fermented Leucine


    leg extension (warm up)- 30 x15, 15, 15
    BB squat- 135 x15; 225 x8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1; 135 x8
    leg extension- 150 x10, 10, 10, 10, 10
    1-leg kneeling leg curl- 80 x8; 90 x6; 100 x4
    lying leg curl- 150 x10, 10, 10
    standing calf raise- 90 x15, 15, 15
    smith machine calf raise- 110 x50, 30, 20
    seated calf raise- 90 x15, 15

    post work out- 2 scoops PF3

    RECAP

    Was training today a little over 24 hours fasted minus some stims and aminos. Was feeling pretty strong considering that. Tonight the emphasis was just getting some volume in. I can still tell my right knee is weakened from getting hit back in May. Occasionally it will start to buckle in on the squats. Got all my calories in within 2 hours of lifting and was actually wanting more. lol

    Now I'm just ready for bed.

    Had two sets of curls and a set of abs thrown in and all-in-all only took me about 25 minutes to get in and out today. My muscles were looking/feeling very full today. I think I prefer eating all my calories in <2 hours like last time versus spreading them out over the typical 4-6 hours. Sitting there last night my vascularity after eating kept increasing to the point it looked like I had just finished an arm work out. I was hoping for 225 x5 on the close-grip, but wasn't using a spotter, and knew I wasn't getting that last rep to lock out on my own.

    Weighed in this morning at 183lbs, which is light, but I'm also the leanest I've ever been and at the same time some of the strongest. I'm not putting up quite as much as I was pre-wreck, but I was also 205-210lbs then compared to the 183lbs now. I'm getting the same numbers as I was then, but just not as many reps, with the exception being squats and my right knee still being somewhat weak. Only a few days left and ever intention of finishing out strong.

    Sounds like you need some more bulk for your bulk? Are you going to try to stay lean during this transition? Or what is your plan for getting back up over 200?

    I dreamer bulked last time and put on about 20-25lbs in 5-6 months. Got up to about 220lbs at 17ish% BF probably. This time I plan on staying with IF and taking it slower. My diet won't be near as strict is it is now, so that I will be able to indulge and go out with my girlfriend and family more, but I plan less of the drastic ups and downs and will hopefully gain a lot slower and a lot less fat this time.

    That is a solid plan. Much easier to gain sustainable mass at a moderate pace. It is counter productive having to cut down several % BF every time you bulk. I don't see the reasoning behind it. After all of that work and dietary torment, you are basically back where you started, maybe a little more ripped, and the cost associated with the Bulk/cut/bulk/cut routine is borderline ridiculous. Just my humble opinion of coursr

    Got it all in pretty quickly and was feeling really good about it. The racks pulls felt pretty good, and I probably could've gotten more had I pushed a little harder, but I didn't wanna burn out to quickly. Everything was feeling really good tonight. Had my girlfriend with me and that always gives my work outs a little extra push.

    Bed time now. I'm going to end up working 8am-1030pm and won't be able to lift so it'll be a low cal day. FML. lol

    RECAP

    Not a bad work out, but could've gone a little better. Had just a nudge on the last part of the second rep, but I was also around 20 hours fasted coming off a low cal/carb day. People at my gym are dumb and took the carabiner off of one of the cables so I had to attempt to awkwardly hold the cables to do my flyes. Other than that my work out went awesome. Felt pretty good and strong once I started. Not some of my best numbers, but it'll do.

    Eating for me has almost become a race now once I finish lifting. Usually I get all my cals in for the day within about 2 hours of lifting. I think I have until the 24th or 25th till I'm officially done and take my "after" pic and throw up the before pic. It probably won't get posted until a day or two after when I get the chance.

    Man, that happens too often. I have gotten into the habit of bringing several carabiners to the gym. Where do they go?? Who knows. There is a drawer full of carabiners in someone's home
