good log, im interested
I'm pretty sure I started feeling the effects today. Below is little description of my back workout from today. That I posted in my journal 7 Day bodypart split log - Bodybuilding.com Forums
WOW!!! One of the best back workouts I have EVER had! I thought my lats were going to rip off my back the pump was so insane. The pump was accompanied by a calm intensity. I was weird. Strength was pretty good. Really loved the combo of exercises I chose. I had that I own the gym attitude....It was nice. I did rack pulls for the first time ever. Turned some heads with it which was pretty cool. I think I could have definatly done more weight but my hams were still pretty soar from SLDL's the other day.
We'll see what happens in the days to come!
good log, im interested
Thanks man. I'm going to be updating daily. I've got three 2 logs and a training journal going!

USPlabs Product Educator. I'm here to help you!
Awsome workout today. Felt real strong on my DB press's, as well as my smith machines. I just got stronger with every set. Didn't work traps today because I did heavy Rack Pulls yesterday, and I felt like they didn't need any attention today. Pump was awsome as well. Definatly looking more vascular and a bit leaner than before.
Weight: 226 lbs!!!
I did Cardio/Abs this morning. Good run, great abs workout. I weighed in at 224. My weight has been bouncing up and down. I'm hoping it will just keep going up. But so far so good. Looking Leaner and more vascular than before. And its only day 6!
have you been weighing yourself at the same time every time you weigh in, because bodyweight usually fluctuates by about 5lbs during the course of the day
haha yea I hear ya bro
hey man i was readin ur log looks like that stuffs workin good for u... is that right on chest day that u do 8 sets of flat bench press?
Well I thnk 4 of those are warm ups. W/e I do as my first eercise I like to do a good bit of warm ups. Get the blood flowing. But I don't do it to the point I'm exhausted or anything. like 2 sets of 135 x 15, then 185 x 8-10 for 1-2 sets. Then Jump into the working sets. It also depends on how my shoulders/elbows/wrist feel. I don't want to jump to my working weight too soon. So I ensure I'm good and warmed up before I hit the weights for real.
If you look at a back day you wont see that many warmups(maybe for dealifts) but I only really do them in high numbers like that unless its an exercise that has a higher probability of injury. I see WAY to many people just walk into the gym and throw on 225 and just start banging out work sets with NO warmup. It just seems like they are asking for an injury.
Feeling pretty good right now. I had an AWSOME workout today! It was insane, the pump was crazy most likely from the AP, and my strength was feeling great, especially on BB curls, and close grip hammer strength. Really liking this stack right now. It can only get better from here! Really REALLY looking forward to the weeks coming....You could say I am this exited-->
thats awesome man i can't wait to get mine started... what are ur complex carb meals lookin like
The meals that I'm taking the AP with are as follows. I don't have macros right infront of me. But I take the AP 15 mins prior to the meal.
Breakfast-6:15 = 2 Scoops Whey, 1 Bannana, 1 Cup Dry Oats(mixed in with protein shake)
Pre-Workout-2:00pm = 7oz Grilled Chicken, 1.5 Cups Brown Rice
Post-Workout Shake(I take the AP after as I leave the gym)- 5:45 - 6:00pm = Weight Gainer. 90 Carbs.
6:30 - 7:00pm(I dont take AP before this meal) 7oz Grilled Chicken, 1 Bannana, 16oz 1% Milk, 1 Can of Yams OR 2 Cups Brown Rice.
I take my Epistane during breakfast/Pre-Workout/Pre-Bed Meals.
Did you read that you aren't supposed to eat right after working out while on AP, or that you aren't supposed to eat for 1hr no matter what?
no it wasn't about the AP, i tried to find the link but i couldn't find it.... but i read not to eat at least an hour before workout, and at least an hour after.. something about keeping the blood flowing i can't remember exactly what it was
If you wait til 1hr after your workout then you still have another 30min til you get nutrients recirculating in your system.
So lets look at it like this 1)youre starting with a low fuel and repair material reserve 2)you spend 1hr breaking down muscle fibers 3) you wait another hr to get in your macros 4) it takes 30min more for circulation.
So in essence youre starting poorly,and are in a catabolic state for 2.5hrs before repair begins=not good.
I drink a 75gm protein 70gm cards an hr before I train.Id rather waste a little protein and have it converted to fuel than not have enough and miss an opportunity to build the most muscle per session as possible.
Try it like this and see if you see the difference.I believe you will.Sorry for the hijack Sully
Good post mm, the main reason a lot of people choose the hour fast after workouts is primarily for cardio/wgt loss sessions as there have been some studies done where it was found that the metabolism was increased quite a bit post workout. Now if the ingestion of food during that time frame would mess with the metabolism of food, I don't really recall any data stating or neglecting this.
I personally don't really abide by this, but if someones really wanting to loose wgt badly then I guess it's worth looking into to.

ok i don't understand the whole amino and macro nutrient thing.... but let me tell u what i do and let me know whats wrong...
i have a meal about an hour before workout...
then post workout(5-10 minutes after last set)i have weightgainer shake..
then 45-60 minutes later i'll have another meal
i don't get the low fuel and material reserve
