  2. Went to the gym and performed some cleanup exercises. More notably I did more HIIT. I'm doing it at varying speeds for sprinting purposes and hit minimum 5 good sprints. I start minimal and hit a 7.0 for a nice pace sprint for the final. Rest periods are upwards of 1 min from 30/30s when I first start out. For you all my pace is slow but for me I'm shocked the treadmill holds up. I'm going to push the pace next month. I'm trying to tear this fat right the f;?)$ off.

  3. Nice job on the HITT... and for the record, as far as I am concerned 7 is not slow. That said, you'll see your pace go up as you get deeper into this for sure.

    No doubt. I'm tired of having the size waist I have. It seems like it's the last to go. Lower belly fat and waist: I'm kicking it into gear to get it gone and get back to a 40 waist. The goal is maintain strength and focus on the bf drop. I know everyone is doing this.

    Here's how today went. Started out by picking up a rota tiler for wife and came home and weed rated while she worked on her flower beds. I then took a nap from being exhausted in the heat. I then took it back and returned for nap number two. The sprints from the day before put a hurting on my system. Then my training partner was in town....he works out of town too, so we get together on my days off if he's in town......he text and asked what time. I was not really up for a workout but I decided to take Stimul8 and Mass550. I stopped and picked up an AMP. I drank half and benched:

    Flat Bench:
    135x10
    135x10
    225x10
    315x10
    405x1 {shocked since I benched with volume early in the week}
    365x10 {PR} I usually struggle with this but hit it for a full 10, WOW!
    275x20

    Unfortunately this is all we had time for. I forgot the gym closed early, @ 2030 {8:30}. I'm stoked because it means strength is improving. This stack is killer. Alone these two products gave me results but together their astounding. It doesn't matter what day I'm having I can change my mindset once I get these in my system and hit it hard. FINAFLEX IS AWESOME.

    Nice work on the HIIT bud. I find HIIT twice a week to be quite effective.

    Yup. Belly fat is last to go generally speaking. Patience is key as you know bud.

    Crazy numbers as usual HP.

  7. July 1, 2014

    I could have sworn I updated this a couple days ago but geesh, I guess not. I hit the gym yesterday for a quick workout and continued on my volume program and smashed:

    Flat Bench for
    135x20
    135x10
    225x10
    10x295x10

    This was after a full day in this sub Sahara heat wearing FR coveralls. In case you don't know what those are, they're fire retardant clothing which allows you to escape a flash fire unscathed Or little to no burns. Except they didn't account for the retardedness when your working in heat. The fibers clothes up tight due to heat. So when the temp outside is 80 degrees or above your in wearing a non breathable sauna suit. After 12 hrs my body is dehydrated and torched.i have pull it together, take my supps and drive 45 minutes to kill the weights. Dedicated for sure. Since the gym closed at 930pm. I got there with only 45minutes left. Mass550/Stimul8, who do we appreciate FINAFLEX.

  8. That suit sounds brutal. You must be soaked when you take it off. Nice GVT @ 295!

    I plan on getting to 315 and catching up with Mike Rashid on the video he put out where he did the 315x100 rep marathon. It was broken up but he killed it. I'm looking to hit that same number. I look on target.

    You know it. My goal is for a Widowmaker Squat/Dead/Bench. I'll be balanced. Widow makers are 20 reps. It's a set goal of mine to pull off especially for days where I'll be without a training partner. You an always work on volume if you plateau.

  12. I'm off this week and was only able to get to the gym twice last week. I've lost a tad more bf. I'm
    On the last leg of bf in my midsection. I ran sprints once last week instead of twice. I'm looking forward to going full bore picking up where I left off. I only have a few Mass550 pills but ordered two more bottle over the holiday weekend. I'll be officially finished with Stimul8 run but I'll keep this log live until after the Worlds Meet in Va Beach.

    Lol..no but my 2.5 yr old sttod on my stomach yesterday while I was lying on the floor and it didn't sink. It was hard. I know I'm there. He was using it as a sprig board. He weighs about 25lbs. He jumped off 5-6 times.

    I hit the gym yesterday and cpmpleted another bench marathon:

    Flat Bench:
    135x10
    225x10
    305x10x10
    {Gassed by the end}

    EZ bar Curls
    85x4x10

    Tricep Pushdowns
    80x10x10

    Walked out with no energy but planned out rest of week. I'm hitting legs tonight and upper back tomorrow. This is definitely a journey. My gym partner asked what the pint of the marathons were, I responded by telling him it's just a different way to approach volume and increase strength. He was able to rep 225x10x5. He has come a long way since we have been training together last year. He has helped since here to Indiana Pa.

  23. Since Wednesday of last week I worked out one other time. I hit back for some high volume and heavy weight. I haven't been back in the gym since, so I consider it recovery. I have been overwhelmed with some personal issues and learning my new job. I have been in this new job since a 1.5 but during that time I had no freaking clue as to what was going on. I work in the drilling field as a drilling engineer. My company relocated me and I purchased a home which began to fail in some aspects, so I have been building stress over this home and job. I think I'm beginning to get back on track. I have been stressing so bad as I need to learn the job and stop stressing before I panic worse than I already have and lose my job. I'm being very open and honest. Pray for mew and my family. I have babies to take care of.

    On another note I have ordered two more bottles of MASS550. They were on backorder until a few days ago. They will be here this week. When I hit the gym I'll make sure I'm focused and tune out the world. I have to stay on track one way or another. This log is continuing. I have finished the initial bottle. Based on the results, this caused me to continue on with two more. My updates may be stretched out but believe me I'm still here until after the comp. I will close this log and begin a new one. Thank you for your time and patience for those who are still with me.
