    I do have to limit depth. 3 operations already and not looking for more.


  2. Excellent day today. Hit my normal fasted cardio for 40+ minutes. Weight was down to 200lbs even

    Afternoon cardio for 35 minutes (really want to cut to 190lbs if possible

    Chest:
    Flat BP (8 sets) 3 sets @ 275lbs 4,3,3 reps (altered grip slightly closer to limit shoulder strain)
    Incline flys (5 sets) 55lbs

    Triceps:
    worked a 3 exercise giant set (JM Press, 2 arm db ext with 2 different weights)

    5 sets with the giant set to failure each, I am going to be sore as hell tomorrow

  3. Lot of volume, especially considering the amount of cardio you did... Let's hope the LCLT can help a little bit.

    thanks man. I can't go as heavy as I want as I am getting older. The days of a 400lbs bench and 500lbs dead are long gone.

    I know what you mean. I have to be a little cautious myself

    Getting older is not as much fun as it should be.

    Just started lifting after 40 min of cardio.

  7. Hit back with a little bit of bis this am

    Wide chins (5 sets) bw 10-12 per
    BB rows (5 sets) up to 185 to failure
    Suspended BW rows (6 sets) to failure per set

    My suspended rows are hanging from the top of my power rack (helps me maintain grip too)

    Bis (was very tired and lacked energy on this one)
    Hammer curls (4 sets) 50lbs sets of 8-10

    Was feeling alittle lethargic this morning. Was hoping to do more bi work, but I knew I was fried.

    Nothing of note yet in terms of body comp, strength etc...

    Only constant is the deep sleep. Which is great, but not as easy to wake up

  9. Have you been able to take GFXT and sleep in yet?

    sadly no. I am always up early which is a direct result of my job and animals in the house.

  11. forgot the rundown from this am

    typical 40 mins of cardio

    Shoulders
    Seated Press (6 sets) sets up to 185lbs sets of 5-7
    Side/Rear laterals superset (4 sets) 30lbs to failure pure set

    Legs
    GHR (6 sets) BW to failure each set

    Have not noticed any changes thus far from XGels, anxiously awaiting. The GF-XT is a wonderfully powerful sleep inducer. However, the mornings are still quite rough. WebRep

  12. Hopefully by week 2-3 you'll start to notice the X-Gels at work.

  13. I'm in for sure. This stack looks epic. I really like The growth factor Xt and what it will contribute here. People often underestimate the power of a natty stack combined with hard work and diet!

    Thanks man I appreciate it. Hoping to see it start kicking in soon. Currently finishing my back/bis workout. Damn dog had me up at 330 so it was off to the basement for cardio and lifting early

    You need to get the dog on a better sleep schedule.

  16. Have had 2 good days of working out. Been trying to increase my cardio and continue on a higher rep routine. Still struggling with shoulder issues, but the more I am working them with lighter weight, the better it is.

    Nothing new to note with X-Gels. I figure it still might take a little time before anything noticeable takes place.

    Im in the same boat. I have a dog that likes to bark at anything and anyone that comes within 100 ft of the door

  18. Well, of course, up at 4 on both a Saturday and a Sunday. Gotta love the pets.

    Still nursing the shoulder issues and was hopeful that the cortisone shot from 3/31 would have had better results. Even with a safety squat bar, it was bad yesterday. Ortho told me that the only other option is to shave my clavicle, which garnered a laugh on my end. No shot, already had 2 operations on that shoulder.

    Weight overall was fine, was able to squat off of a low box in excess of 300 without issue. The pressure on the shoulder/ac joint was bad though.

    Worked light shoulders specifically side and rear lateral raises at 25lbs and kept in strict.

    Love getting older

    Yikes man. You taking any joint support products to help ease the pain and discomfort?

    Cissus unfortunately hasn't helped, even coupled,with my OT. I am all ears for others recs however..

    It's funny, I was able to do a real great lift yesterday even with it. It wasn't too bothersome at all. However, when I woke up it was real bad and had a significant impact on my workout this am.

    Yesterday I was able to hit 225 for 10 smooth repos on the incline. This am however, rows/chins and hammer curls had significant discomfort.

  21. Not sure if it'll help yours or not, but I've been having Gratson Technique done on my shoulders/thoracic, and it's been helping. Getting rid of all the scar tissue has helped relieve AC and rotator pain.

    Could try iForce's joint health product if bulk Cissus didn't help.

  23. I will give it a look

    No lifting today, as Tuesday is my typical day off.

    Did do some lower impact treadmill for 40+ mins. Lower speed, good sweat. Bodyweight sitting flush at 201

    An iForce rep can probably supply some good write ups as well.

    awesome...will do


    Did cardio this am. Since this afternoon begins my modified spring break, I will be lifting later this afternoon.

    Tomorrow will be similar as well. I am the lone admin in the building tomorrow, so might actually use the school gym.

    Yes. It is very strong. Puts me right to sleep at night, probably within 20 minutes. However, that alarm goes off, and I am struggling…more so than any other night time GH booster I have tried.

    Had a good workout yesterday with cardio and legs, while it seems that it is chest that is making my shoulders far worse.

    Once again, both days had typical cardio of 40+ minutes at 12% incline. speed varies from 3.7 to 4.3 mph

    With legs I focus as I always do. Box squats and GHR. My safety squat bar didnt hurt my shoulder at all, and neither did my lighter shoulders workout. No press, just light DB lateral work.

    Chest on the other hand is a killer. Any pressing motion seems to cause significant pain either the next day or later that day. Not to be gross, but just used the mens room here at work, and was in serious discomfort picking up my pants from around my ankles.

  28. In a 2 week mark, have you noticed a libido change and better recovery compared to other GH's ?

    Nothing of note libido wise. However, I am finishing up a modified back/bi lift right now. Great emphasis is on bis, the pump is downright
    Painful. Definitely an xgels response. 1 word....WOW

    I also had Graston work as part of my PT. Also cut out overhead presses and bench work unless on a machine that limited the motion. Lots of retraction/scapular pull work to keep the shoulders in line. Cable work for interior/exterior rotations. A year later: no shoulder discomfort.
