Alright, just got back from doing legs and abs. Started off the workout today with 20 min. on the elliptical to loosen up and also burn a few extra calories. Upped my weight on all of my machine leg excercises, at least 1 notch up the pin. Also, upped the weight on deadlifts today and did a few extra sets of calf raises. All in all a very motivated leg day.
Also did some abs today, crunches, side crunches, weighted crunches. Trying to do alot of different ab excercises to get ready for summertime.
Its amazing how time flies while i'm in the gym now, I dont even notice how much time is passing while i'm in there because I am so pumped about the weight and transforming my body now on these supplements.
I needed the lower body day though, because I blasted upper body monday and tuesday. Still trying to keep the weight moving up, so i'm pushing really hard to consistantly up the weight in all excercises. And so far i've been able to do that. Noticing some new stretch marks under the arms, fresh red! (i know its bad, but it makes me feel good, like showing that i'm getting great results).

Shoulder day today... hit shoulders hard for the first time this week. Got a good workout in, barbell pressing 135 x 10 for 3 sets so i was pretty pleased with that. Then did some shrugs with 90lb dumbbells, then 225 on the barbell. Overall, had alot more strength than i've had, even with doing chest yesterday, which takes away a little bit cause of the soreness.
Also hit some abs today, did alot of twists with the medicine ball and about 100 crunches.
I have been getting amazing sleep the last few weeks while taking these supplements, I feel much more refreshed when I wake up and just overall more energy throughout the day. Motivation is still way up and I'm still seeing significant jumps in strength. The biggest thing for me though is the quality of sleep, I'm not sure why exactly i'm sleeping better, but I definately have been since starting this stack. I'm feeling like my muscles are recovering faster and I'm ready to hit the gym hard every day.
Have a good weekend!

Been feeling really good this week in the gym...its a stat week so i've really been pushing hard looking forward to thursday and friday to see if the weights have improved... my stamina has been up in the gym and my recovery time has drastically decreased... i've been sleeping better and am not as sore as use to be.
Will keep you updated, as i wrap up week 4 on this stack. Hopefully tomorrow we'll see a continual increase with the stats!

Alright guys, huge update, i've been pumped about this all day today. I knew today was my max day for chest, so i'd been thinkin about it all day, getting excited for it. Well i blew it up today in the gym... my max bench jumped to 250!!!!! sick guys, this supplement stack is amazing...that is up 12 pounds from 2 weeks ago... i'm at the end of week 4 and i cannot wait to see where things go from here... i have such a great pump in my chest right now, its a great feeling...
I also got a pretty good tri workout in today too, because of my enthusiasm from the chest workout...
I cant say enough about this stuff guys...thanks for subscribing, i'm trying to make this as interesting as possible, but I wish you could see how interesting it is for my lifitng parters! haha, they are going nuts!!
Well, take care! Keep checkin in. and thanks for all the motivating words!

Thats awesome...congrats man! Thats one thing im really missing and not liking about my current w/o plan. My numbers are increasing, im getting more reps in 15 minutes and all that...but i just dont get as psyched about my body weight exercises. I started doing barbell rows instead of pullups (i have a barbell i can use with minimal weight, just no bench) and i just get more excited/aggressive about that workout. But anyway, congrats again...i know how excited you are...nothing beats that feeling of kickin the sh!t out of a PR. And as usual...reading your log has me excited for the things to come...keep it up bro!

Back from spring break and back in the gym guys..
Dediced to switch up the workouts in order to shock the muscles a bit and hope for some serious growth. So, today I did arms (bis, tris, forearms). Got a great lift in and felt a really good pump, enjoyed a strong boost in energy this morning because I had taken a week off from taking my IGF, so today when I took it I felt really energized.
I noticed that the week off was probably good for me, because it allowed my muscles to fully recover (which they havn't done for a while). So when I was doing arms today I felt really good, really loose, and just felt like I got a great lift in.
Tomorrow will be a chest only day so we'll see how that goes. Keep checkin in for updates guys, and thanks for the support!

Got a good chest day in today. Noticed an increase in my stamina for sure. I'm trying to switch up my workouts now, as i am halfway through my stack, in order to keep shocking my muscles into growth. I started off with flat bench and did 6 sets of 6 reps to mix things up... i got the first 3 sets with 205 and the last 3 with 185... then moved onto some heavy incline dumbbell sets... followed by some flies and some pushups...
Since i'm concentrating fully on chest on specific days it will be good to see how that energy keeps up with only doing one bodypart. I think it will be a good change of pace for me because these products have kept my stamina up alot so far, so hopefully it will be even better now that I am isolating only one part.
With the great recovery that I've been getting I'm really pumped to see where these new workouts are going to get me, because i'm sure my body has gotten use to the workouts i've been doing.
Overall, today I got a great pump on my chest and my energy and stamina were both through the roof, we'll see how things go for the rest of the stack and hopefully my bench keeps climbing!
Take care guys!

Great week in the gym this week. I've really seen a difference since I switched up the workouts and I feel like it was a good call at this stage of my stack. My recovery has been great for how hard i've been lifting so I'm definately impressed. Still getting great sleep (i noticed a difference for the week i was on spring break, the sleep wasnt as good).
Today I hit arms hard. It felt good and I feel like I got a great pump out of them. I think it was a good idea to dedicate a whole day to just arms, because I feel like i'm really able to isolate them now. My weight has been consistantly increasing on tri-pressdowns and the curls are even increasing at a consistant pace.
Yesterday I hit back and shoulders and got a good workout in. Did alot of chinups (more than usual) and feel like things are really improving.
Tomorrow will be my second chest day of the week and I'm going to concentrate mostly on flies and other toning excercises, cause I dont want to have 2 heavy days a week for it, but feel like I will be better off for my body to hit it twice. It has worked so far, so I think the trend will continue.
Take care guys, have a safe St. Pattys day weekend!

Looks like you're on a good path to winning a contest! Keep up the good work.
03-19-2007 11:25 PM
Here's hoping Don! I'm busting my ass to win that thing!
Today was my first arm day of the week. Feeling so great with these arm isolations, and i'm totally mixing up the weight, excercises, and order of excercises. Trying to shock as much as possible. Alternating bis and tris every few excercises. It was a great day though, i really felt energized today because i went to sleep really early last night and slept all the way through the night. I feel like i'm really putting some size on, but I dont want to do measurements until the end of my 10 weeks on the stack...although i am really pumped about the results already.
Overall, up to this point I couldnt be more impressed with the results... the end of the week marks the end of week 6 for me, so we will see how the new workouts have improved my strength...
One other great aspect of this product was how fast I recovered since i switched up the workout completely... i was really sore the day after my chest workout, and felt like there was no way that I could possibly be un-sore by the time my second chest day came, but what a surprise when I felt perfect when the day came around... it was honestly a shock at how fast my muscles recovered with these products, cause typically i woulda been sore for a week after totally mixing up workouts... very legit improvement...
