  1. pumps were good, muscles felt full..........best workout yet with thunderbolt


  2. Damn, I still can't get over how much volume you do. Have you noticed a continued improvement in your workouts with consistent use?

    not yet..... just the wind....def noticing that i dont get as out of breath, i also have not used it that much yet...only getting in-4 workouts a week

  4. with that said....workout was solid today... felt bad goin in but was determined to at least a get a lift in, kept my form spot on the whoel time which i ususally never do So i was hapy... and even with my high rep squats my legs were the limiting factor not my wind which is very unusual.

    I am also going to get back to writingdown my workouts so i can see improvements cuz i jsut feel like ive beenin a rut lately

    front squat with 1-2 second strictpause at bottom, also made sure not to lean forward at all! - no belt, want to strengthen the core
    165x5x7
    165x7 (failure)

    close stance back squat - constant tension
    125x15x5 Rest paused to 25 on last set

    Leg Press
    8 plates - 5 sets of 8, rest paused to 20 on last set!

    Front rack kettle bell lunges - 4 sets 30 steps drop to bodyweight for 30 steps on last set

    hack squat - constant tension - 90 pounds 12-15 4 sets double drop on last set

    glute bridge
    185x10x3
    195x10
    205x10

    RDL with chains
    185x8x3
    195x8
    205x8

    GHR 5 sets of 10

    Lying leg curl supersetted with leg ext - double drop on last set of each!

    felt like i got a lot of volume in without overdoing it, sometimes i like force myself to workout more when i know ive already done too much but today just felt right

  5. Everything looks good. Do you feel as though Thunderbolt is helping to get you out of the rut?

  6. Workputs have slowly been picking up, a less hectic schedule would really help me out of the rut lol

  7. I apologize for the lack of updates lately....been extremely busy, jsut picked up 5 new personal training clients at once so ive been working on nutrition and workouts for them as well as a big exam for school thursday.

    anyways..... i was eally dizzy today forwhat ever reason, i was a a little dizzy the pastcouple days but today was worse.......still pushed through my workout but there were times where i was not able to push as hard like with my lunges.

    On the positive, i was able to up my weights and felt good strength wise.........the squats really took a lot out of me today

    front squats
    8 sets of 5, last set to failure - 7 reps - all done with strict pause at the bottom and perfect flat back, no belt! Trying to keep form perfect to really build up my core

    Close stance contant tension squats - really pushed these today and they took ALOT out of me

    125x15x5 , 20 on last set!!!

    Leg press
    8 plates 5 sets of 8

    Walking lunges with kettlebells in front rack position....heavier than last week
    4 sets of 24 steps

    hack squat
    110x10-12 - 5 sets

    1 leg glute bridge - these were crazy hard for some reason
    no weight 5 sets of 8 per leg

    seated leg curl 4 sets of 10 double drop on last set

    leg ext 4 sets 12-15 double drop on last set

    lying leg curl 4 sets 10-12 drop on last set

    was getting some crazy pumps in my quadds, even on low rep front squats, was loving it!!! the thunderbolt is def noticeable there, esp since i hadnt had carbs in 2 days!!!.......breathing is easier too....verynoticeable on the highrep squats.

    was sweating like crrrrazytoday


    calories will be loered by around 6-700 every day till friday, doing a 5 lb strombolli eating challenge, we will see how workouts handle it.....on the bright side i will be training 4 days ina row for he first time in a LONG tie! pumped!

  8. yesterdays workout went not too well...for whatever reason i was jsut mentally gone, i think its because of the rough leg workout the day before....i couldnt get a pump i was weak and unfocused.........

    Deadlift - no belt - focusing on form

    275x5x8
    155x25! - this was not as hard as i thought, i will bump this up next time

    very true they smell bad!! almost like an old wet sock

  18. Haha yep

  19. At least they perform well and don't stink in another regard

    Vascularity should be extremely pronounced on a low-carb diet I'd imagine. That plate of food almost seems like enough food for me.

  23. I've never met someone in person who could out-eat me. I eat a ton on a daily basis and even being hypothyroid I don't gain a ton of weight.. it's odd. Nice to hear weights are going up on a low-carb diet- that's impressive.
