    Down a pound today, which I would have to attribute to bad diet yesterday and lack of hydration; weighed in at 282.8 lbs. My split is off this week because I was out of the gym Monday and Tuesday, so today's workout wasn't the greatest, but got the blood flowing. We'll see how tomorrow goes.

    On a side note, I want to attest to the usage of Reset-A.D. with Adderall XR. Reset was the first PAL product I tried several months ago, drawing high interest because of my desensitization to XR's and stims, in general, effects. My Dr. did not want to up my dosage due to my size and ill effects on blood pressure. After some experimentation on my end, the Dr. agreed to use me as a "lab rat" and try my on 2 doses of XR spilt between the day; something he had never done before in his practice. This was a Band-Aid to my situation and soon no longer did the trick. After shedding all supplements and using only Reset with my XR, its effectiveness was dramatically re-established. The XR was starting to do its job again and I wasn't seemingly taking it in vain. Some days I was even able to drop to only one XR a day. The effectiveness of this single product, in conjunction with the hospitable communication with PAL itself in humoring my incessant questions, led me to this stack.

    Pics...I'm not really comfortable with myself to post any. Not sure whether it's insecurities or that I look better on paper, but I'm reluctant to put any up or take any. If you would like measurements I could offer that, just let me know what I should list. Same with the lifts...what would you like to see?

    Todays Update:
    I can tell the Reset-A.D. is starting to saturate. I fell asleep a little easier last night and woke up with less snoozes and got to the gym at an almost acceptable time. Since my split os off this week, I did quads and calves today. Went surprisingly well...which makes me think the other supplements are starting to take effect.

    Weight check today: 284.4
    No real explaination to the slight increase. At my size it's really negligable. I should probably not weigh in so often, but I can get a little OCD at times.

    Probably won't have a weight update until Monday, which is my next scheduled visit to the gym. Goal next week is to regiment my cardio. I belive I will continue lifting in the AM and doing cardio in the PM.

    OK. I couldn't even begin to know what my maxes are, but I can list what I do. I used to get off doing crazy weight for reps and shocking people, but as I've aged my joints don't find that fun at all. I normally don't go crazy with it...mainly b/c I'm rehab'ing my rotator cuffs, and today my nagging quad insertion or hip flexor (not sure which one) pain comes into play since I did quads.

    Tried to get some pics with my camera phone, but that's a no-go. I'll work on something else. Not really gonna borrow a camera to explain what it's for since I don't own one.

    Best I could do. Two from a fishing trip a couple of weeks ago, and two from yesterday messing around helping a buddy who's a home inspector. They are pretty bad, and none really give a good indication as to "me".

    Bored at work on a Saturday, so figured I'd throw up a little update. Starting to feel the effects of the test boosters. Hard to explain but it's something I've felt on others before; however, never this soon into starting a stack. I have IBS, and my stomach has been more out of whack since starting this stack. My appetite has been up and down, sometimes I have to force myself to eat, others I have to limit myself. I seem to be wanting carbs more than normal too. My meal cadence has been off since I haven't been as hungry most of the time. I plan on focusing more on my meal cadence this coming week.

    Today...
    Not feeling as flushed on the stack as I have been, but I'm not taking my XR today either.
    Seems the only side-effect I'm really noticing is a little narcissism. Was in Target last night catching myself about to do a lat spread in some mirrors. Before that I kept checking myself out in the same mirrors. Not really characteristic of me.

    I'll have a weight check tomorrow when I'm back in the gym in the AM.

    Weight today: 283.6 lbs
    While on paper today's weigh in is negligable from last week's, it is actually a good indication of loss for me since I will typically gain 3-5 lbs on an off weekend. I still had a couple of cheat meals and was able to essentially maintain from last week. This is a good thing to me.

    I had a lot of trouble getting up this morning. I got to bed much later than I planned. I had my alarm set for 6, but lacking motivation I forced myself out of bed at 7:15. I will make it a point to get to bed earlier tonight in attempt of getting adequate rest.

    Today was Back and Hamstrings. Since recently changing my split, I moved Back to the first day since it's probably one of my weakest body parts. I put forth a good effort today and did a few more sets than I normally do. When getting ready to leave for the gym, I felt the Incarnate more today than normal. The tingling feeling wasn't just in my face by my upper back too.

    Monday: Back/Hamstrings
    Misc Rotator Cuff rehab cable exercises

    Lat Pull Downs to front
    200lbs: 3 x 10

    Dumb Bell Rows (Single Armed)
    50lbs: 1 x 10
    65lbs: 1 x 10
    80lbs: 1 x 10
    50lbs: 1 x 12

    Horizontal Cable Rows (Using Wide Grip Lat Pull Down Bar)
    *Usually my finishing exercise using 2 sets
    100lbs: 3 x 15

    Close Grip Pull Downs (Normally not performed)
    100lbs: 2 x 20

    Five Minutes on Elliptical

    Seated Leg Curls
    75lbs: 10 feet flexed, 10 feet pointed (consecutive, no rest)
    100lbs: 10 ff, 10 fp
    125lbs: 8 ff, 8 fp
    150lbs: 6 ff, 6 fp
    175lbs: 5 ff, 5, fp
    200lbs: 4 ff, 4 fp

    Romanian Dead Lift
    135lbs: 1 x 15
    185lbs: 1 x 10
    235lbs: 1 x 10

    High Plate Leg Press (Feet hanging off top; heel contact only)
    405lbs: 4 x 15

    Plan on doing cardio this PM if time allows. Because my sleep cycle has been a little off, that will take precedent over cardio if need be.

    Weight today: 282.0 lbs
    Digital scale kept fluctuating between 281.8 and 282.0 lbs. Got on and off several times with the same effect. Just to be safe I'll take the higher of the two.

    I woke up easier today. Started at 6am and out of bed at 6:30am. My upper body endurance was horrible today, as evident in the reps/weights in my final sets. I'm not sure if I exhausted my shoulders too much doing my Rotator Cuff rehab or what. I am limited in my weight used for reps doing chest because my Dr recommended using dumbbells rather than barbells due to my Rotator Cuffs and the dumbbells at my gym stop at 100lbs. Normally this poses an issue, but today it did not due to my low endurance. Also, I spent far too long in the gym. I was there approx 2 hours, which is WAY longer than I like to be. I was moving slowly I suppose. I am dealing with a mental battle of weight for my chest. My Dr recommended dropping the poundage, but the ego in me wants to go heavy. Last week I went light on chest, 50lbs for all presses and 20lbs for all flyes; really focusing on the muscle. This resulted in chest soreness I hadn't felt in a while. Today my ego won and went heavier. It can be frustrating knowing you can lift so much more but are limited by an injury.

    Today was the heaviest I can remember lifting for calves. This was more of a mental decision vs a strength increase.


    Tuesday: Chest/Calves

    Supplementation:
    I am going to drop my dosage of GABA today. Currently I'm taking 2250mg daily. I am going to drop it back to 1500mg today. I am not sure if it the GABA or Rhodiola, but I was in a hyper-anxious state last night. I had a similar bout several weeks ago before starting my PAL stack, so I know it's not related. It was actually worse before the stack. From my web-search I found no real side effect for Rhodiola, but found that GABA can exacerbate high blood pressure, anxiety, flushness, mouth numbness, etc.; all of which I'm experiencing. To note, I normally take it closer to bed, whereas yesterday I took it in the mid afternoon.

    Otherwise, everything is remaining the same.

    Otherwise, everything is remaining the same.

    Going to drop GABA to 0mg today and hold it there for a couple of days. I might up it back to 750mg later on, but am going to take a little break and see what happens. Going to do the same with the Rhodiola in the case it's the culprit.

    Weight today: 281.2 lbs
    Scale fluctuated again today between 281.0 and 281.2 lbs. I took the higher of the two.

    Could not wake up today. Alarm started at 6am and didn't get up until 7:15 or 7:30am, can't remember. Not sure if it's be cause I didn't take the GABA or what. I plan on getting to bed earlier tonight if at all possible.

    Work out went fairly well. Did a few more sets and exercises than I normally do. I should've stuck to my normal split routine as to avoid overtraining. I made sure to focus on wasting as little time as possible in there. My biceps are probably my weakest body overall and today's pump wasn't that great.

    Had trouble getting up today, but I think it was more a decision than a necessity. I'm not sure if I need to up the Reset AD or not. I made a valid attempt to get to bed earlier, but I think I tried a little too early resulting in my falling asleep later than anticipated.

    Today in the gym went OK. My elbow started bothering me, which is not normal. I think I went too heavy for my triceps warm up. This ended up affecting me when doing traps; I do not use lifting aides and my grip was off due to my forearm/elbow.

    how does your diet look?

    Typically if you are malnourished you can enter an overtraining situation whereas the body cannot properly rest and grow. Since you have not gone into detail about your diet, i figured it would be good to question it.. just to see if everything looks good!

    Weight Today: I went to a gym location I typically don't visit because it has a true leg press. I used their slide scale and it read 279 lbs even. But because this isn't the scale I normally use I can't say for sure what I'm relatively at.

    Weight today: 283.2 lbs

    I had WAY too many carbs this weekend, which is what I would attribute to the gain. Replaced the shocks on my vehicle Saturday in 90+F weather in the open sun. I was completely douched in sweat and after finally getting done, after being completely mentally, physically, and emotionally drained, reached for anything I could to eat. I should've breaked several times during the process to feed, but was hard-headed about it and put it off till the end. Plus, I spent the afternoon and evening at my friend's house yesterday after church, and with his wife being Italian had several carb-laden meals.

    Today's workout wasn't stellar by any means. I was sluggish and for some reason the gym didn't have any music on today. I think I might be able to afford an ipod shuffle this check so I might order one. Anywhodat, I made a point today to refocus on my mind/muscle connection and humble myself on the weights I used. This is something I have done in the past with great success and am going to revisit this principle. I also made sure to stick to my routine and not stray so much, keeping my sets/reps under control.

    No joke! I have a lift on it and the shock mount relocators really complicate things.

    Not much to say today. Again, went the humbling route and did light weights on my chest. Got a great pump though, so much so I could barely flex my chest at the end of my workout.

    I am house/dog sitting for a buddy, so I am a little out of my element. I borderline binged last night when I got here. My meal cadence was off and by the time I got to eat I didn't want to stop. I ran out of food at work so I was starving which was bad. Off work today so that will be handled.

    The barbell bench was staring at me like a broad in a low shirt and a high skirt. I had to really fight going back to it today. I hope eventually I'll be able to go back to it and be able to lift heavy again. I had to laugh at myself the way it was beckoning me.

    PAL Folks,

    Should I up my Reset dosage? With everything I'm on I still feel pretty sluggish. I think my allergies have been out of whack, but would like your thoughts.

    hey man... ive had the same allergy problems lately... its what you get for living in the South in the summer....
    I dont think that Reset will help with youre headaches... maybe try 1 more cap a day for a few days to see if it helps.... but im not sure that it even would....
