Thanks all! Hope this brings my BF down, gotta get those abs!
Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: ~39/33/25
Cardio: ArcTrainer 40 mins, ~650 Cals.
Had a good Chest/Tri/Ab workout, but the day after I feel tired. I didn't eat nearly enough... I should have had about 800-1000 more calories. Had a bigger breakfast to help recover.

The bottle says to take one 2-3 times a day with a meal, so I'm doing one with breakfast, one in the afternoon, and one with dinner.Originally Posted by joebo

Weight (AM): 176.5
Ugh. Worked Legs. Felt pretty tired and lousy in the morning, but a bit better later on. Went out to eat to catch up on calories, but with that fried food overshot it big time. (Keep in mind estimation today). Had to do unlimited shrimp.

Just curious as I just took my first pill this morning. What time is your last dose and has it affected your sleep at all?

Notes: Still managed to get a good Back/Rear Delt/Bi workout in, despite feeling the leg workout from yesterday and morning cardio. After caffeine wore off I was toast, there was no way I was going out!

Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 27/25/45
Cardio: 556 cal
Weight (AM): 177.5
Notes: Chest/Tri/Ab day. Despite being tired, went pretty well with decent strength gains. Out to eat (again!) the fat content pretty high, but damn those ribs were good. Still, I have 180g protein for the day, and I'm under for calories, so it shouldn't be too bad.

Will do, thanks Viperspit. I just gotta get more eating in... Still hitting the weights hard!

I've been doing three sets per exercise on a three day split, with cardio on two of the days. A few weeks ago I changed the routine to catch up my chest, working chest only twice a day every other day for 9 days. I went back to the three day split before the Thyrogen-X. I discovered that even after only 9 days I wasn't used to the 3 day split and felt like my CNS was getting fried, so two days ago I tried dropping the the sets to two per exercise. I figure this should be OK since each bodypart is basically getting worked twice a week.
Incline Machine Press
Decline DB Press
Narrow Grip Bench Press
Triceps Cable Extension with Rope
Machine: 175 to failure, 115 to failure, Leg Raises to failure with no rest inbetween. Then alternating crunches for obliques.
Cardio: was doing 35-40 minutes, cutting down to 20-25.
Seated Hamstring thingamajiggie
Seated Calf Raises
Narrow Grip Pulldowns
Standing barbell curl
45 Deg. DB Curls
Rear Delt Machine press
You'll notice the narrow grip and some machine use, my shoulder is pretty stable now, but I don't want to blow it. I'm making pretty good progression with the machines so far, so I will wait longer and then progressively work in more free weight exercises.

Gator........Your an animal if you can train that much, I know I couldnt do it. What happened to your shoulder?
09-19-2006, 02:03 PM
Back in '02 I dislocated the shoulder and broke my arm in a motorcycle racing crash. I went through PT but then dislocated it more times than I can count afterward, so in 03 I had surgery to tighten it up. PT again afterward, then after another 6 months or so dislocated it once more, with some subluxations too. A few more sessions of PT.
So after all that I'm figuring PT alone wasn't cutting it. This January I talked to my orthopedic surgeon that I wanted to start lifting again, and he cautioned me to take it easy, with no pressing or overhead movements. I thought the minimum weight on the pressing machine would be OK, but sure enough it hurt like hell and I was sore like hell for over a week. Then I just left it to biceps and triceps only, after a month or so added real light close grip back work. I progressively went heavier until May, where I was able to start pressing movements without it hurting too bad. I kept adding weight and in June I was starting to lift real weights again! The best part with the weight training is that my shoulder is the most stable it has ever been since the accident. Woot!

If taken slow and steady with caution the results can be great I feel very fortunate that I have made it this far seeing where I came from. I never want to go through all that crap again!
09-19-2006, 11:11 PM
I hear ya. With the crap I went through I never thought I would get back to the shape I was in, but now I can see it's possible! I've said it before, but that back shot in your avatar is great! You're an inspiration now that I hear you had shoulder problems too!
Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 33/38/29
Cardio: 480 cals
Weight (AM): 177
Notes: Back/Rear Delt/Biceps day. Had a good pump, think there may be some fat loss going on, veins in biceps starting to show a little more. Gotta keep that fat burning!
This is the second three day split with one day rest inbetween. Will probably take a second rest day.

Thanks! I'll keep it up.
Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 35/40/24
Weight (AM): 177
Notes: Day off. Felt like I really needed it too. Took a 2 hour nap in addition to sleeping 9 hours! But I felt much better afterward.

Ok, all rested, now lets kick some booty on that IRON

Yeah, the 40/40/20 is what I shoot for, but sometimes I miss. I don't do any canned diets, just eat whatever I want with Excel guiding me.
I weigh my food after cooking, so beforehand I'm estimating. I think that's why I stray off a bit.
But I still like to try to get the macros even with each meal, for example if I am too heavy on carbs I won't skip carbs on a meal to make up for it - nutritionally I think that's worse. But I did come closer today.
Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 41/34/25
Cardio: 400 cal
Weight (AM): 177
Notes: Extra day off. Did cardio in the morning - 20 minutes ArcTrainer (elliptical-esque) and then Tabata sprints on the treadmill. First time with Tabata sprints, dear gawd that is not for the meek. Felt that all day. The bright side is that it gave me a nice buzz for 5 minutes.

Calories: ~ 3686
Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: ~ 31/34/26
Cardio: 525 cal
Weight (AM): 175
Notes: Chest/Tri/Abs. Felt pretty good and had moderate gains in strength. Did 30 mins AM cardio, and another Tabata sprint session post-workout. I downed 1/2 my post-wo shake before hand, and it felt pretty good. It didn't kick my butt so bad, even though I slightly increased the speed. (Unless otherwise noted, my cardio is in the AM on an empty stomach).
