    Notes: Back/Rear Delt/Biceps. Glad I skipped legs - all the HIIT/Tabata sprints were killing my legs. Didn't feel so burned out, and looked forward to hitting the gym. I had a good workout with decent strength gains. Still have the morning headaches though, even on the morning of day 18.
    Although i haven't noted it in my log, I too have been getting morning headaches.....I have been attributing it to allergies, but now you got me thinking....

    Notes: Legs. Morning headache again, skipped the L-Ornithine/Acetyl L-Carnitine combo but had some drinks last night. (I have been taking this at night since Jan).

    Went a little lighter, as my knees have been feeling bad. Stepped back 10 pounds and kept reps the same to progressively go back up.

    Hmm... I dunno what to think. I didn't start having headaches until day 15. I attributed it to early warning signs of overtraining, but now that you mention it I am not sure. I have the next two days off of weights, with just some cardio tomorrow. I'll see how they go after the rest.

    I think I'll keep my split to this
    3 weights / 1 full rest
    3 weights / 1 rest + Tabata sprints / 1 full rest

    I can keep up doing the HIIT to keep my metabolism up, almost once per week interval. On the outside days of weights I do low-intensity cardio (65% max HR).

    Now this morning I didn't really have a headache. Almost felt like i was going to, then its gone. Blood pressure is fine as I just got it checked when i went for my allergy shot. Why it comes on hours after my last dose is odd, but it leaves quickly and today and actually the past couple days it was non existant.

    Gator, you may have low blood sugar in the morning, if the headache goes away after eating that is prolly it. Do you drink a shake before bed or eat cottage cheese before bed?

    I'll have to look out for that, but I don't think it goes away necessarily after eating. I do cardio on an empty stomach, and if I remember right it goes away during cardio. I've been taking Ibuprofen when I wake these past days with the headaches.

    Day 26
    No Thyrogen-X
    Calories: ~3357
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: ~27/39/33
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): 176.5 Home
    Notes: Home scale may be a bit wonky. Skipped the Thyrogen-X a second day, and on the following morning no headache. But I noteably changed a few things:
    - I've been real tired the last few days, and took this day as a refeed day.
    - I ate before going to bed. Normally I do not eat at least 3 hours prior to bed.
    - I skipped my ALCAR L-Ornithine nighttime cocktail, as it is only good on an empty stomach. (I have taken this since Jan. with no headaches, for slight GH boost. Who knows, could be the combination of this and TX).

    I think the headaches are related as I still have them. Have you had any real loss or leaning?

    I seem to have some leaning and gains - I'm so close to 30 days now I'm gonna wait for the pics. I'll also take measurements.

    Weight (AM): 177.5 Home
    Notes: Legs day. Had to work quick - only one set per exercise after warmup. Don't know about calories, I was out of town for a job until 10, didn't get to log, and there is no nutritional info for the restaraunt I was at. Don't think I can even provide a good guesstimate so I'll leave it out. Had a mild headache in the morning.

    Notes: Back/Rear Delt/Biceps. Headache in the morning again, worse than yesterday. Did a lighter workout with back as well, sets of 10-12 reps, not at the RM. Workout felt good, had pretty good pump.

    (I enter the logs the following day - on day 30, my headache wasn't as bad this morning, mild like day 28).

    One more day Gator, then I look forward to your final review, aside from the headaches I hope you did gain some benefits from TX.

    30-day review:
    I certainly gained in the 30 day period. I think I hit my ongoing goal pretty well, to re-comp my body. I had pretty good gains in strength while getting a little more defined.
    I think the Thyrogen-X helped out, it was really around the second week or so where I noticed myself looking more defined in the gym. My pumps feel fuller, and I can see more mass and definition in my chest. That is also after I started getting headaches, which I *think* was from the Thyrogen-X, but let me stress that I am not sure. The headaches really started to be a drag on my workouts, and I started losing motivation. It did also seem like my appetite ramped up a bit, especially on my days off. Would I take it again? I'll leave that answer for day 40, to get a better idea about the headaches *for me*. Funny thing is my legs look like they had good progress, despite my knees feeling bad and going lighter, specifically slightly lighter weight without 100% effort. I can see some more separation in my quads too - I can start to see the teardrop which wasn't too visible before. Hopefully I can get bodyfat measurements tomorrow.

    It's harder to see the extra mass that I mentioned in my chest from my photos, which I took relaxed, a day after working out before TX and two days after working out post TX. Here is the before and after:



    Measurements 10-13-2006
    Chest - 42 5/8" Up 3/8"
    Waist - 33 3/8" Down 1/8" (Both measurements NOT on an empty stomach!)
    R Arm - 15 5/8" Same
    L Arm - 15 1/4" Same
    R Leg 6" from knee - 20 1/2" Up 3/8"
    L Leg 6" from knee - 20 1/2" Up 1/4"
    *All measurements before and after taken 3 times and averaged.

    Weight
    Start - 178.5
    Day 30 - 177.5
    *Note though that my scale was consistently within 1 lb of the gym scale before, now consistently 1.5-2 lbs heavier.
