    Haiz Recovers from surgery with Purple Wraath and GreenMAG


    Haiz - Rebuilding With Purple Wraath and Green Magnitude

    Well folks, the time is here for another log. I had gyno surgery on july 26th and my doctor has given me the ok to start lifting full body again, so this log is pretty special to me. I've never been more excited to hit the gym. I missed it every single day I was gone. I have managed to stay in decent shape, but I lost about 10 pounds during my time off. I am hoping that I can get back to my former self by the end of this log.

    Training

    My workouts during this log will be random at first, as I work lightly back into doing full chest exercises, but after a couple of weeks, I will be starting something like a push/pull twice a week. I'll write out the specific program when I start doing it. For now though, I am just going light in pushing exercises until I feel 100%.

    Nutrition

    Meal 1: 2 Eggs + 1 Cup of Oats + 1.25 Scoops of ON Whey

    Meal 2: Chunk Lite Tuna Sandwhich on Sprouted Grain Bread, with Fat Free Nayomaise, lettuce, and tomatoes. Washed all down with 2 Cups of 1 % Milk.

    Meal 3 (Pre-WO): 1 Cup of Oats with 2 Scoops Egg/Whey Blend

    Post-WO: 2/3 Cup Nonfat Dry Milk (Same as 2 cups wet)+ 1 Scoop of whey.

    Meal 4 (1 Hour PWO): 8 Ounces Veggie, 1 Cup Beans (black or pinto), 8oz lean protein (usually chicken), 1 Cup of Milk.

    Meal 5: 8 Ounces Veggie, 8oz Lean Protein, Almonds, 1 Cup of Milk.

    Meal 6 (Pre-Bed): 1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1 TBLS PB. 1 Cup of Milk with .5 scoop of muscle milk.

    Stats

    Weight - 170
    BF% - 10-12
    Height - 6'0"

    Is the Java still helping your gyno scars?

    Can you feel me watching through your monitor?

    Day 1: Lower Body

    Squats

    135X8 (30 Second Rest)
    135X8 (30 Second Rest)
    135X8 (30 Second Rest)

    "Goblet"/"Cup" Squats

    60X15
    60X15
    65X12
    65X10

    Hack Squats - Close Stance SuperSet W/ Calf Raises

    140X20 - X25 Calves
    160X15 - X20 Calves
    160X15 - X20 Calves

    Seated Leg Curl Superset with Donkey Calf Raises

    160X20 - 90X20 Calves
    200X12 - 100X15 Calves
    200X11 - 100X15 Calves


    Initial Impressions


    Taste - GM: 10/10 PW: 10/10

    Honestly...WOW! The electric lemonade GreenMAG is SUPERB. Very nice tasting. I mixed it with 24 ounces of ice cold water and it was a joy to drink.

    When PW came out, I used 3 tubs of the first version. Needless to say, I liked the effects, but the taste wasn't the greatest. Well, Version Three is liquid candy folds. Hands down the best tasting grape supplement/drink I have tasted. 2 Scoops in 80 Ounces of Cold Water is delicious.

    Mixibility - GM: 10/10 PW: 9/10

    Honestly, I don't know why people complain about the mixibility of PW. I put everything in my jug with Ice Cold water, shook it for 30 seconds and then let it sit for 30 seconds. PERFECT.

    GreenMAG mixes instantly and very easily.

    Strength: N/A

    Its a little early to give this a rating. Strength was way down, but Intensity was way up. Squats felt a bit weird in my right glute, so I went really light and kept perfect ATG form.

    Goblet Squats (Thats what I call them. You hold a dumbbell in front of you like a cup/goblet. Then you squat away) were good. Short rest periods between everything.

    The high rep Hack Squats Supersetted with calves was killer, but I loved it. High reps today, so nothing great in the way of strength though.

    Endurance: 9/10

    There was a very pronounced effect on performance today. Time to fatigue was greatly delayed and I was always able to pump out a couple extra reps. Thats to be expected with the combo of EAA's + BA + CM though!

    Other

    I was always a fan of PW for getting me going in the gym. I am laying off of the caffeine for a month or two here, so I really like that the PW has a nice energizing effect on me, without the inclusion of stimulants. Very nice.

    Day 2: Light Chest/Shoulders

    Machine Press

    160X10
    180X10
    180X10

    Incline DB Press

    40X8
    40X8
    40X8

    Decline Machine Press

    100X12 -
    100X10
    100X10

    DB Shoulder Press SuperSet W/ Laterals

    35X8 - 20X10
    35X8 - 20X10
    35X8 - 20X10

    Front Raises

    20X15
    20X15


    Strength: 6/10

    Talk about the definition of weak...I had no idea my lifts would go down this much. To give you a comparison, pre-surgery, my DB Shoulder Presses were 65X5. Pretty Humbling to do 35X8. Chest was taken very lightly. It felt good and I can already feel the soreness...

    Endurance: 7/10

    The workout was quick, so endurance wasn't much of a factor. I also don't have anything to compare it to in terms of chest/shoulder endurance in recent memory, so I really can't judge it too well right now.

    Other

    Overall, pretty up and down day. I was thrilled to start hitting chest again, but a bit frustrated at my strength. It will climb quickly though, so I'll be pushing harder than ever next time in the gym.

    We wouldn't want that. Taking it slow will be hard, but it is necessary.

    Ahh...I'm still not in the groove, so I am a bit disappointed. It almost as if I don't feel "at home" in the gym like I used to. I need to get that feeling back...Ugh.

    When we switched gyms I had the same problem as you. I was downright uncomfortable there, but when I went back to my old gym after months at the new one it wasn't the same happy place for me. It just takes time to get back in the swing.

    Now quit whining and get to working out

    Day 7: Chest/Triceps

    Incline DB Press

    50X8
    50X8
    50X8

    Flat BB Bench

    135X5
    135X5

    Things are progressing much more quickly than I thought they would. Take for example, last week I only did 115 on the bench for 5. Up 20 pounds this week. It is still not very strong, but it will come back quickly if today is any indication. Everything felt "good" for once.

    Endurance: 9/10

    What can I say about endurance...pretty darn good. I even did 30 minutes of cardio PWO without a problem. Awesome Awesome Awesome.

    Other

    Well...everything seems to be looking up, which is nice.

    Nutrition - To This Point in the Day

    Meal 1: 1 Cup of Oats + 1 Scoop of Whey + 2 Eggs

    25X12 - 185X12
    25X12 - 185X12

    Strength: 8/10

    Strength is getting MUCH better. My chest was incredibly sore, so I took it easy on the presses, because it was quite tight. It loosened up though, and everything felt awesome.

    Endurance: 10/10

    Pure awesomeness here. The supersets were sweet and I did 30 minutes of cardio Post-Workout. I love have the endurance to do all of it and still feel fresh!

    Other

    Another great day. Very busy with school + work, but everything is really coming along better than expected. In no time I feel like I'll be a beast again!

    Legs + Back Tomorrow!!!

    The healing is really surprising me. I'm headed to my girlfriend's this weekend, so I'll be snapping pics to show the before and after of 1 bar of java lather. I've already got more, but I haven't resumed it yet.

    I still have a fair bit of scar-tissue underneath, but that takes 3-4 months to go away, so it doesn't bother me at all.

    Whats brutal is how my chest feels right now. Hitting it at a regular intensity for the first time a couple of days ago has left me with the worst doms I have ever had in my chest....AWESOME!

    I agree. Since I started GM and WF I get DOMS every work out. I notice it in the morning when I feel like a truck just hit me. Awesome feeling is right.

    I still have a fair bit of scar-tissue underneath, but that takes 3-4 months to go away, so it doesn't bother me at all.

    Pure awesomeness here. The supersets were sweet and I did 30 minutes of cardio Post-Workout. I love have the endurance to do all of it and still feel fresh!

    SWEET!!! Great to see everything is getting better, you're getting there in no time:bb3:

    Strength is coming back up. Squats felt decent. I didn't feel much better than last time, but I managed to put more weight on the bar, which was nice. All of the back exercises felt great. Very nice.

    Endurance: 10/10

    I am constantly impressed here. All of these supersets and I was flying through the workout. I did not do cardio however, as I will be doing some tomorrow.

    All is well. I had an incredible post-workout meal. I had a MASSIVE helping of broccoli and carrot stir fry with a ton of roasted turkey, a bowl of quinoa, a glass of milk and a grapefruit. YUM!

    The workout was short, but the PW really helped me push through cardio. I was very pleased. The air was off in my girlfriend's gym, so I was dripping with sweat. I all I have to say is....

    Another great day. I am so happy to be back in the gym. All is well. Period!!
