nosaj03's ALRI ALL DAY: Thyrogen X Log
10-10-2006 11:49 PM
Today was a good day. It was a bit busy at work but other than that it was all cake. Today's workout was awesome despite another busy day at the gym
Im almost at my target weight but like I said before I think I need to gain some more quality pounds before I start cutting. I think I will base my target weight not solely on just weight alone but also visual appearance. I still starting cutting when I feel I am at the appropriate size regardless of weight I am. I dont know if this is the right way to go about things but this is all apart of the learning process.
I didnt really go over this last time but there is really not much of a variance on a daily basis. It is truly monotonous at best. Chicken breast, chicken breast, chicken breast, tuna, tuna,tuna. Most of you know what Im talking about when it comes to food. We all eat out of necessity not pleasure.
Everything was on point again today. Im almost out of Regen-X and Im pretty sure that Im going to get some more but like with Primed, Im going to wait a bit to see what effects it has on my workouts without supplementing them.
Today was Back and Tri's Power with some abs. After todays workout I can tell my strength is up. I was still using some of the same weight but I was able to get more reps which ultimately means next go around Im increasing the weight. It was basically PR's all the way around As with all my back excercises I will be using straps to limit bicep involvement.
Bent over BB Rows
Wm: 135 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 200 x 6 x 3

Great form throughout the entire excercise.Im pretty happy about that.
CG Seated Cable Rows
160 x 6 x 3
I didnt get gassed early like I did last power week.

Last time I could only get 4 and gassed on the last set.
110 x 6 x 3
Hanging Knee Raises
15 x 3
130 x 12 x 3
Today was an awesome workout. Im happy that my strength is up. JW/Restore has been good so far. The whole libido thing isnt really helping in the gym though I was tired all day until I got into the gym and I had some pretty good energy throughout. This is the third day without Primed and Im sitting on the fence trying to determine whether or not Im going to get it again. I think Ill give it more time. Tomorrow is leg day but it may be an off day because my best friends sister is having a babyand depending on when she goes into labor I might be too late. We'll have to see.
10-11-2006 04:09 PM
chicken.......chicken.......bl a bla bla. LOL I get sick of it too, but we do what we have to huh! Glad your day went like cake
10-11-2006 11:20 PM
Well due to doctors ordes my friend isnt going to be induced until early tomorrow morning so I was able to workout legs today. It kinda worked out for me because tomorrow is my regular off day but it sucks for her because she has to wait one more day.
175 + 1
Im steadily gaining day after day. I dont know if thats good or bad but to be honest I dont feel much bigger. But then again you cant really feel a pound. I am pleased to say though that the Im asked on a regular basis whether or not I workout
This entire week at work is Hispanic heritage appreciation week. Today there was a bunch of latin food for everyone. I am happy to say that I didnt eat any of it with the exception of some cuban coffee. Its not that I didnt want to for healthy eating sake, I didnt eat it because spanish food always gives me the worst gas. I stuck to my grilled chicken breast and oats. Id say I got in a good 3400 cals.
Same ole, same ole. Im getting down to my last few doses of JW and Restore and I took the last of Regen-x postworkout. Pretty soon its just going to be storm, TX and whey. Im still undecided on getting some more Primed.
Today was legs power day. The gym for some reason was pretty much empty, so my workout went smoothly. I really burned out my legs today. I had PR in reps and weight!!
Smith Machine Squats
WM: 135 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 245 x 6 x 3
+20lbs from last time. It actually felt kinda easy at first until I was halfway through the 2nd set.
235 x 6 x 3
425 x 6 x 3
100lbs more on presses!!!! I fought for each rep too.
185 x 6 x 3
I stood on one of those stair stepper things and I was able to target my hams and glutes better. My ass was so pumped from the squeeze after each rep.
Smith Machine Calf Raises
235 x 6 x 3
I has some awesome endurance in the gym today. Im happy about the PR's and Im glad to see my strength is going up. My legs felt worn but I would have kept going if it was not going to be bad for my growth. I think that the p/rr/s training routine has really helped me with some great gains and the addition of supplements is the icing on the cake!! Tomorrow is going to be off and I can use some much needed rest.
10-12-2006 01:43 AM
Hope your friend has a smooth delivery !!!! I hope you get some rest, but I have a feeling you wont, lol. Its great that you are there for your friend

Day 26 and 27 (Day 28)
This is basically a recap for the past two days. Its been crazy. First I happy to say my friend had a beautiful baby girl on Thursday. Friday, I didnt post because my internet was down the whole day and didnt get back up until yesterday afternoon. Needless to say, I was pissed off for the past two days because I couldnt use the net. You dont realize how much the internet is apart of your life until you dont have it anymore. Its like a cellphone. Anyways.....
Friday was delts and traps power. I was a bit tired because I was up late with everyone at the hospital to see my friend. I didnt get home till 2 and I had to get up at 5. It was a rough morning. I was actually thinking about not working out and just getting some rest and the weird part was even my horroscope said I should get some rest. Needless to say after a few No Fear energy drinks later in the day, I decided to man up and work out.
I was up again.
My intake was about 3000. It sucked and I was off the entire day. It was busy and it sucks when you are exhausted.
Amidst all the chaos at work I still managed to take everything when I was supposed to. Im almost done with JW/Restore. I think I have just a few more days. Unfortunately, Ive decided not to get Primed again. I think Im going to find another preworkout supp to replace Primed and Storm. Im going to use Storm postworkout. There is a bunch out there so I havent decided yet. Im also still undecided about Regen-X.
It was Delts and Traps Power with a little ab. The gym was empty on Friday night which was good because I didnt have to really wait for anything . What sucked though was there was no working water fountain in the place. The county was switching the tap or something like that which was only supposed to last only a few hours in the morning but ended up lasting all day. I had to BUY water from the gym which was expensive at first but the guys there hooked me up.
Smith machine Military Press
WM:110 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 185 x 4 x 3
I upped the weight and dropped the reps from last time
Standing Upright Rows
110 x 6 x 3
Same as last time but the next go around Im going to use the smith instead so I can up the weight.
Seated lateral raises
35 x 6 x 3
My middle delts felt smashed afterwards. The seated lateral raises are so much harder because it forces you to utilize your delts more. Its hard but I like it
Bent over lateral raises
55 x 6 x 3
Wm: 80 x 12 x 3
Working Set:315 x 6 x 3
PR on the BB shrugs. This is the first time Ive tried it and thank god for straps because I felt like I was going to drop the bar a few times on the last set.
Hanging Leg Raises
15 x 4
I was pretty tired by the end of my workout. I didnt feel like doing any more ab excercises
Yesterday was cardio
I didnt weight myself yesterday but I assume I didnt change
My intake usually sucks on the weekend but I always get at least 3200 +. Unfortunately its not always as clean as it should be but I try to limit my fats. I had some awesome turkey burgers yesterday
I only took two doses because I had plans to watch the UFC fight which was awesome. Rich Franklin got his ass whooped. Anyways I had a few beers and I didnt want to drink while on my supps
On Saturdays I used to do cardio in the gym but instead Ive been playing baseball and football with some friends. We play both and we usually play for a few hours so this is my replacement for cardio.
Im almost done with my log. Im going to continue until TX is gone. The odd about TX currently is that Im not sweating as much and the increased body temp has subsided. I dont feel as hot throughout the day anymore. I dont know if thats a good or bad thing. Tomorrow starts REP Range WEEK.
10-16-2006 11:45 PM
I cant believe that this log is almost over. I think it may last another two weeks because I think that is how much TX I have left. I had an awesome workout day . The gym has pretty empty for a monday so I didnt have to wait for anything and I had a bunch of energy throughout the workout. Its was an overall great day!
The same as Saturday. Whats weird is some days I feel lean and other days I feel like Im trying to layer up for the winter. Ive never felt this way before. Its odd really.
I had about 3400+. I had some awesome leftover steak tips with mushrooms and over roaster potatos from dinner last night. I ate pretty clean all day. its been a while since I been able to do so which I think is part of the reason Im not as lean as I wanna be at this weight. But hey thats why they call is bulking.
Same schedule with all the supps. Today I found a sample of Shock Therapy that I got with my storm . I forgot that I had it so I took it preworkout. I have to say that I felt the energy in about 30 mins. It was kinda shocking (no pun intended) because it usually takes a few days for me to start to feel the effects of most supplements. I felt this right away. It was a nice calm energy not like a jittery cracked out feeling that Ive had with other supplements. The pumps were not to bad either. I think I may have found my replacement for Primed.
Today was Chest and Bi's Rep Range. I like this part of P/RR/S training because I really get to kill the muscle groups and I feel so worn by the end of the workout. I get such a good pump going especially in the higher ranges
Flat BB Bench
Wm:120 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 185 x 8 x 3
Db Incline Bench
55 x 10 x 3
Nice pump in my chest after the 2nd set
Pec Deck Fly
100 x 12 x 3
My chest was burning up during the flies.
50 x 14 x 3
Fatigue started to set in after the first set and my chest felt smashed by the end
Standing Barbell Curl
WM: 40 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 70 x 8 x 3
I got a nice pump started
Alt. DB Hammer Curls
35 x 10 x 3
My bi's were throbbing by the end of the last set. I always seem to burnout my arms early
25 x 12 x 3
Ez Curl Bar Preacher
40 x 14 x 3
Usually its such a light weight but it felt light a ton after the first set. During the last set I was forcing the last few reps. I thought I looked kinda funny using everything I had to lift a 40lb bb.
Today was an awesome workout. I had great energy and focus plus a very nice yet painfull pump in my arms and chest. I was spotting some guy doing squats between sets which gave me just enough time to catch my breath and go at it again. Tomorrow is back and tri's day and Im really looking forward to it because I cant wait to workout my back. I love back day!!
10-17-2006 10:50 PM
Another great day in the gym. Ive had some really good workout for the past few days. Ive actually been in a pretty good mood lately. The odd part is that Im lacking sleep and usually I would be pretty cranky. Things like this usually worry me because I always have this feeling that something bad is going to happen. I guess you can call me paranoid
I seem to have plateaued again but Im not complaining because Im at my previous set goal weight.
Same ole' same ole'. Actually I did eat a lot of bananas today. I dont know what is up lately but Ive been eating bunches and bunches of bananas
Its been a quite a while since Primed and I can tell a big difference in the energy levels. I felt so lethargic today before I went to the gym, I was afraid I wouldnt have the energy to put in a quality workout. I could tell the difference from yesterday when I took Shock Therapy and today. Im definately going to have to get something for that. Jw is still giving me some awesome pumps and strength but Im lacking on the endurance side.
Today was back and tri's REP Range. I love to work back. I had an awesome back day. I was up on all of my lifts and I also incorporated some stiff armed pulldowns that wreck your lats!
Bent Over BB Rows
Wm: 135 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 185 x 8 x 3
Up 50lbs from last RR week!
Wide Grip Pull Down
130 x 10 x 3
Up on this one as well
Stiff Arm Pulldown
100 x 12 x 3
Ive never done these before and I didnt realize how much these really work your back. Im definately going to be adding these to my arsenal to get wide!
Seated Cable Row
110 x 14 x 3
My back was smashed after the last set. It was so pumped it was a bit painful.
Wm:45 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 65 x 8 x 3
I had that discomfort in my shoulder again that started bugging me during my 2nd set
60 x 10 x 3
130 x 12 x 3
My shoulder really started to bug me so I stopped tri's after this one. Im happy that Im up on weight and reps though
Dispite the lethargy and shoulder pains I had an awesome workout. Im siked about the increase in weight. I guess thats what progression is all about. Ive decided to order Shock Therapy and give it a go. I think it will definitely complement Storm as its intended to do. Primed was great and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to anyone else but I want to test the waters and plus Shock is just more cost effective. Im still undecided about REGEN-X. Tomorrow is leg day and Im also looking forward to leg day. Another one of my favs, to be honest with you I actually look forward to working out anyday
10-18-2006 11:08 PM
It was another day of feeling tired. I dont know whats going on all of a sudden Ive been really really tired throughout the day. I feel so lethargic and I have to constantly push myself to get motivated. I was tired during my workout as well
I was down today when I weighed myself this morning. I didnt weight myself after workout as I usually do.
I ate pretty clean all day with about 3400 cals. I tried the dry rub recipe in this months muscle and fitness and its pretty damn good. Im starting to like chicken breast again.
Everything was the same again today. During work all day I was researching preworkout supps and I was trying to decide between Shock Therapy and NO Shotgun. I ended up pulling the trigger on shotgun because of the ingredient profile. I like the fact that is has a large number of bcaa's and extra protein. The only thing that Im concerned about is the taste. I hear its supposed to taste like boiled ass but Im going to man up.
Today was leg RR day and I also did abs. Personally I think my workout sucked today because I just didnt have the energy to put into it. I think I could have done so much better but tomorrow is another day.
Smith Machine Squats
WM: 110 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 185x 8 x 3
175 x 10 x 3
My hams and ass were pumped by the end of the first set
285 x 12 x 3
I started to get gassed during the first set. It made me kinda mad because I shouldnt be gassed this early
140 x 14 x 3
My quads were killing me by the end of third set. I felt kinda good until I started walking to the water fountain.
Cable Crunches ss Rev Crunch
130 x 12 x 3 ss RC x 15
Pulldown for Obliques
110 x 10 x 3
Hanging Leg Raises
12 x 3
Like I said previously I was pretty pissed about my workout. I dont know why I am all of a sudden so lethargic and unmotivated. Im getting the same amount of sleep as I usually do. Oh well, tomorrow is rest day and maybe a day off would help. Friday is Delts and traps and hopefully Ill be feeling a lot better.
10-23-2006 09:56 PM
Ive been MIA for the past few days. Feeling like crap since Thursday morning. I work up all sutffy and congested. Its sucked ass because I really havent been able to work out. Ive just been laying around taking all kinds of meds for the past few days. Today I was feeling better but nothing close to well. I still decided to workout though.
173 -3 lbs
I guess because I havent been feeling well I havent been eating much. Ive just been drinking a lot of fluids and popping vitamins.
Lots of chicken noodle soup and oranges. I dont know how much Ive consumed today but it was well below the norm. It sucks being sick. I actually started to get my appetite back so Im getting back to the daily grind
I stopped taking everything on Thursday and today was the first day I started back up again. I actually got my NO Shotgun today, only bad part is that I didnt feel well enough to really feel it. I must say that it does taste pretty good despite what everyone and their mom says about it. I think by the end of the week I should be done with JW and Restore and by next week I should be done with TX.
Despite missing out on my shoulder and trap workout on Friday, I decided to continue with Shock week today. It was chest and bi's. I didnt really make any progress in regards to last shock week but I still managed to get a decent workout in.
Incline DB ss DB flies
WM: 45 x 12 x 2
Working Set: Incline 65 x 8 ss Flies 45 x 8 x 2

I was taking longer between each sets to gather a little bit of strength
Decline Hammer Press

WM: 45x 12x 2
Working Set:60 x 8 ss 35 x 8 x 2

70 x 8 ss 35 x 8 x 2
I had a little bit more energy but I still felt kinda weak
EZ bar curl
80 x 8 x 2 ds 50 x 8
To make a long story short, my workout sucked today. Im feeling better but not completely up to par and my workout suffered. I must say that SHotgun gave me some great focus and I felt a lot more energetic compared to my current state of illness. The pumps were good too! Im impressed with how it made me feel after the initial dose. I hope it continues. Anyways Im going to get some rest and hopefully Ill feel better to tomorrow because its back day and I want to destroy!
10-24-2006 11:47 PM
Seasons are changing and its starting to cool down here in muggy florida. I love it down here when it get cool and you dont melt when you go outside. After a good night rest and some nyquil, I woke up feeling brand new. I was excited because it was back day!
Still the same but I should be up again over the next few days.
I ate pretty good today. I would estimate around 3400 and all clean. Im really liking the chicken recipes in MF. I cooked up some awesome chicken breast for my lunches with some brown rice and broccoli. I was glad to see my appetite was better.
Only thing new is Im really liking NO Shotgun. The taste is awesome and the energy and pumps are sick. Its been a while since Ive taken a NO supplement like that. Im sorry to say it but it really does put Primed to shame. Im really diggin the redline based energy and my veins are popping out like crazy!
Today was back and tri's shock. The gym was really full today but I somehow managed to get to all the cables and weights no problem. I had so much energy in the gym today, I was all over the place and at the end I decided to do some ab work. It was funny because me and some other guys in the gym got yelled at for dropping the weights. I dont know what they expect, some of the guys were pushing big weight and I think telling them not to drop the weight only made them do it more often. It was funny seeing how mad the guy who works there got when people kept dropping the weights.
WG Pulldown SS CG Cable Row
WM: WG Pulldown 115 x 12 x 2
Working set: WG 145 x 8 ss CG Cable 130 x 8 x 2
Nice burn and I was up on the weight from last shock

145 x 8 ds 115 x 8
My back was so tight after the drop set. I was satisfied
Db extension ss kickbacks
Wm on DB ext: 45 x 12 x 2
Working set: 65 x 8 ss 30 x 8 x 2
I always get a good pump early on arms but at the end my tri's were throbbing.

80 x 8 ss 130 x 8 x 2

Cable Crunches ss reverse crunches
130 x 12 ss RV cr x 15 x 3
Hanging leg raises
12 x 4
Today was a great workout especially compared to yesterdays. I was feeling close to 100%. I was up on all my lifts and shotgun is really doing it for me as a preworkout supp. Tomorrow should be my last day of jw and restore, Ill wait to finish TX to do my final review on everything. Overall it was a good day and tomorrow is going to be leg day.
10-25-2006 10:43 PM
Today seemed to just fly by. I woke up late this morning and I was feeling really tired. I notice that I usually have a problem getting up on time when it starts to get cool. Maybe its because it so comfortable all covered up in soft blankets. I was thinking that I was going to need to use one of the samples of Stimulant X I got the other day but I didnt get around to using it. Im actually curious to see how well it works.
Im starting to gain weight again. Im glad because I was afraid not eating right or working out because I was sick would make it hard on me.
Back to the daily grind. Id say around 3400+. I ate a boat load of whole wheat past and lean ground beef I made yesterday plus some of the leftover chicken breast.
I took my last dose of JW today and I think tomorrow will end it for me with Restore. I look forward to the time off and starting again , hopefully with the new mystery mass supplement that should be coming out soon. I only have a few more days of TX. Shotgun is still kicking ass and I just bought a bottle of Xtend so Im supplementing that as well. I was thinking about trying Epic's 8 beta-anabol but I think I might wait to stack it will their 4 nitro-tropic when I run out of shotgun. We'll have to see.
Today was leg shock day and it was actually the shortest workout Ive had. I think I finished under an hour. I was just blasting through the workouts with very short rests between. I was full of energy but I did have to wait a little bit because people kept getting on the machines after I would finish a set not realizing that I had more to do. It was cool though.
Romanian Deadlift ss Leg press
Wm on Leg press: 275 x 12 x 2
Working set: 325 x 8 ss 185 x 8 x 2
I was up on the RD's from last time and pretty good form as well
Leg extensions ss Leg Curls
180 x 8 ss 150 x 8 x 2
I wanted to do more on the leg curls but the machine with the heavier stack was occupied the entire time so I just did the whole stack on the available machine.
Smith Machine Squats
225 x 10 ds 185 x 8
My quads were burning by the dropset. I was happy with the endurance and I the pump going on in my legs
Toe Press machine
200 x 15 x 2
Great burn in my calves but I think I need to find another workout for calves.
Today was a quick but solid workout. Even right now a few hours after my workout my legs are feeling pretty full. Ive noticed with shotgun that I maintain vascularity for an extended time. I havent had this with any other NO product. Im also really diggin the energy. Today I was drenched again but I dont know if I can attribute it to TX because I havent sweated this much in a while. Well tomorrow is supposed to be my rest day but I think I might workout anyways because I might have things to do on Friday. We'll have to see but I really want to workout shoulders and traps because I didnt work them last week.
10-26-2006 09:56 PM
Today last minute I decided to work out. I made plans for Friday night so tomorrow will be my rest day.
Up again. Hopefully I can keep the momentum and keep gaining quality pounds.
Unfortunately because today was supposed to be my day off. I didnt eat to clean. Had some cheat foods but nothing too bad. I dont even know how many cals I had today.
Took my last dose of Restore. I should be done by Monday and Ill post my final review. Eventually all Im going to be taking is Shotgun, preworkout, Xtend during and Storm post. I plan on taking a month or so off before I start stacking again.
Today was Shoulders, traps and I did some forearm work. I upped the weight and added an extra set to make up for last week.
DB Overhead Press ss Seated DB front raises
Wm: 40 x 12 x 2
Working Set: 55 x 8 ss 35 x 8 x 3

DB Wrist Curls
40 x 12 x 3
The pump was painful. I couldnt squeeze my hand.
Today was an awesome workout. My shoulders and traps were so full and I couldnt squeeze my hand, it was great I actually got to use Stim X for the first time today and the energy was pretty good. I didnt crash at all and I didnt feel all cracked out. I think I might pick up a bottle. Tomorrow is my day off and I could use the rest. Ive been tired all week.
10-31-2006 09:28 PM
Its been a while since Ive posted. i didnt want anyone to think that Ive forgotten my responsibilities. Its been one crazy and hectic month and it gets even worse near the end of the month at work. I havent really been to the gym since last week but Im completely done with TX so my final review should be coming up by the end of the week so stay tuned!
