    I had a ****ty workout today, literally. I had to make an unplanned trip to the menís room after my calf exercise. That probably explains why leg curls were terrible. I will give the exercise one more chance to see if I really canít beat the numbers. Either way though, I am switching it out during my next blast, I donít like it at all, I will do sumo deadlift or sumo leg press for hamstrings. I guess I will still be too weak to do glute-ham raises. The weight on squats did go up and for the first time the widowmaker gave a really hard time, I barely did the first 10 reps without a break, the last 3 or 4 were very heavy singles and I was out of breath. Those felt great nevertheless and I am actually noticing that the vastus medialis is coming out nicely!

    Another good day off, sleep was great and I am starting to think that taking DT later in the day makes me sleep better. It is actually the best day I have had so far after a squat day which means a lot.

    I played with the calipers and I found out that all the upper front body measurements have gone up half a millimeter. I have gained some fat then but because I have gained lean mass too I canít see the fat gain. Looks like Friday wonít be a high carb day any longer, I will stick to carbs strictly for breakfast, before and after workout. Also, on some days the water retention is just too much.

    Another ****ty workout today, figuratively speaking. I just got a couple of reps here and there, completely messed up form on the close-grip bench, by the time I found out I was repping out the last mini set. I did however increase weight for reps significantly on the T-bar row. That got me thinking: all the rest-pause sets suffered while the straight sets felt awesome. It must be a CNS thing and it must be because of Wednesdayís squats: this has happened every single time. This is not surprising though, I have hard time recovering from leg day as it is and once I switched to DC it got worse. Besides, in less than 12 weeks I have increased the weight for the widowmaker by 50%. Given how good I feel outside the gym in the days after I do legs speaks volumes for the increased recovery I get from DT. So what Iíd do next time is wait until Saturday to do this workout. This should work because if it doesnítÖ well I donít want to think about the possible consequences.

    Comments:

    Today was supposed to be an off day but I will be out of town for a couple of days next week and that necessitates some changes. The workout was pretty good, front squats felt awesome. I didnít warm up as much as I usually do so I couldnít quite push myself on the heavy set. On the other hand, form was impeccable and I had no problem balancing the bar at all this time.

    It doesnít feel much like another day off after training legs at all. I did take a nap but mood and sense of well-being have been remarkable. My imminent trip this week is stressing me out though, letís see how it goes.

    I had a job interview today which meant ****ty diet and some stress because I was there all day. The flight was delayed which made sticking to the plan impossible. I feel like I have lost 2 lbs of muscle and gained 4 lbs of fat in one day.

    Comments:

    I got home early in the morning and slept in. Then I took another nap in the afternoon and dragged myself to the gym around 8. Surprisingly, I had a very good workout; I beat the numbers and felt strong but unfocused. I couldnít have asked for more after a period of less than optimal diet and excessive stress. It did take me about 20 more minutes to complete the workout but it was a success nevertheless.

    Wow, what a workout yesterday. After skipping the Wednesday workout I forgot what the days after felt like. I took a five-hour nap in the afternoon and didnít do much work although I have tons to do.

    There is a nagging pain in my left hip and my lower back is sore from the SLDL.

    Surprisingly, today feels worse than yesterday, Iíve been procrastinating all day despite the two imminent exams. I have had worse days so thatís not too bad. Also, I can swear I can see changes in my quads from Friday. My left hip is fine today.

    Comments:

    It really feels like I have missed an upper workout last week, conditioning and stamina were below average. The good news is that the numbers went up. I almost got a 3rd rep on the last set of decline bench and a 5th rep on the last set of shoulder press but form rules weight any day so I decided to quit. Unfortunately, I forgot how much weight I used on pull-ups so I ended up using more assistance than before, only a 4lb plate but still more. The reps were higher than the last time I used 6 plates so it wasnít bad. Also, 295 felt really heavy on deadlifts. I should start using a belt during my next blast. I donít need it while squatting so my core wonít lag much behind because of belt use.

    I did manage to gain some weight in the last two weeks but given the events last week, it is actually encouraging. The changes in the mirror, however, are more pronounced. Now I have 2 weeks to make the most of this regimen before I start cruising. I hope Halodrol Liquigels hits the shelves by then because I want to stack it with X-Factor during my next blast, which is planned to start 4 weeks from now. I will of course keep a log.

    Comments:

    Not a bad day off today, lower back is sore but no joint pain whatsoever. My form on deadlifts must have been good. Again, I felt sluggish after the second meal but I have come to expect it. Also, I recalled how good the pump was yesterday, especially in lats: it was all the way down to the insertion. I rarely get a good pump so that was noteworthy.

    Comments:

    Overtraining is getting to me big time but just 10 more days till cruising. I feel weak, unmotivated and unfocused but somehow I manage to move around as much weight as I do. Today, for example, I managed to add 20lbs to the heavy set on squats and get the same number of reps. I couldnít, however, complete the 20 reps on the widowmaker: as I was coming out of the hole on the 18th rep I just failed and dumped the weight on the rack. I did 12 reps straight then the rest were singles with quite a few deep and noisy breaths in between. Oddly, I couldnít feel my heart racing or anything and once I finished I didnít feel dizzy and didnít sit on the floor or anything, I just started sweating profusely which persisted through the cardio session. Not bad after all, I got up to 205 although I was 3 reps short of my goal.

    Now I will take two days off instead of one before my next workout since recovery is slow and that Friday rotation has always suffered.

    Not a bad day off today, I was not too sore or too tired. I had to take a nap but that was expected. Once again, I felt much better in the morning and worse as the days progressed.

    Soreness today is much worse, I can barely walk. It looks like the sumo leg press is a killer exercise, my inner thighs are so stiff. I am not missing the leg curls at all.

    Comments:

    There we go again: I took two days off but the workout was as bad as every other Friday-following-squats workout. Pushing was terrible, I even lost two reps on the shoulder press. No, all rest-pause sets were terrible! On the bright side, rowing went extremely well, thatís a 50% increase in reps with the same weight. I donít know what to think, I know I am overtraining but all other days are good, I know my legs are still sore but I took 2 days off with plenty of food, rest, and sleep. I might have to resort to doing only straight sets during my next blast for that workout only because squats will get heavier and recovery would be difficult. Well, whatever needs to be done will be done.

    Today was the last day of taking Raw Test. Iím thinking about taking 8 tabs of DT next week on workout days and 6 on the two in-between workout days instead of 6 tabs for 6 days. Weíll see how it goes, I didnít respond to Jungle Warfare until I bumped it from 3 to 5 caps, the recommended dose of many things is too low for me, although DT has been working fine so far.

    Legs are still sore a bit and cardio does not boost my appetite as it did before. I went totally off the diet today too.

    Comments:

    I dreaded going to the gym today and it wasnít because it was my birthday: I was tired and unmotivated. During the workout, focus was all over the place, it was so bad that I felt as if someone else was lifting the weight for me. Therefore, I didnít get 6 reps on front squats but at least I put 2 plates on the bar. I beat all numbers but it didnít feel like I did.

    I had only a couple of drinks last night but I could feel them upon waking up: itís been around 6 months since I have had enough alcohol to Ďfeelí it so Iíve been unaccustomed to it for some time now. Morning cardio and solid meals helped a lot to feel better but all overtraining symptoms are present.

    I slept in today and decided enough is enough. There is no way I could hit the gym. Instead, I decided I will complete todayís workout on Friday and finish this review on Monday, which is when I start a much needed cruise. I have never felt so run down in my life for any reason. DC is really brutal on the CNS.

    Comments:

    Itís been exactly 30 days since I performed that very rotation and I didnít know what to expect. I didnít feel like working out again but I did not dread it as I did on Monday: the three days off must have helped. Focus again was barely there but I managed to beat the log book. I used a belt for the rack pulls and it just occurred to me that the last time I used one was 10 years ago in high school. I got the same lower-back discomfort I normally get but it lasted only until I performed the stretches afterwards. I will use a belt from now on for deadlift, rack pull, and possible leg press. I donít need it for squat/ front squat.

    Today is also the last day on DT. Two more days and I will complete this log on Monday after the last official weigh-in. I have discontinued all other supplements, including multi and fish oil, but not Diesel Fuel as of today as well.

    Not a bad day today considering yesterdayís workout. I needed a good nap in the afternoon and barely did any work but felt very good later.
