Don't get down on yourself for the leg days..... you gotta protect your geriatric back lol jk
Yeah, don't sweat those numbers at all. Everybody has what I like to call "A high gravity day".
the skull crushers are with a regular ez-bar?
I have a hard time doing em with the ezbar + 10s
dang, thats almost 200lbs, a normal ezbar is 25.
I do enjoy the way they feel doing them
Yeah those are stressful on the old elbow joints for sure. I used to do them heavy..with 8 10 pound plates stacked on and then go over and do weighted dips with 90 pounds tied around my waist.
Not sure my elbows or shoulders will ever forgive me for that. lol

Log update from day #54. Leg day.
warm up sets: empty bar for 20, 135 for 10, 205 for 8, 245 for 4.
Set 1: 275 for 10
Set 2: 325 for 10

It was actually pretty good leg workout for a change. Nothing remarkable in terms of weights used, but my knees and back felt good. I did really slow and deliberate reps, with very little rest time between sets. Great pump.
I have been done with this log for over a week, but I'm only now finally finding some time to get up a summary of the log. The log was tiltled Drive/log. However, at various times I was running only one or the other. I also added into the mix toward the end of the log.
All in all I had some solid strength gains. I still need to check my weight (I train at home and don't own a scale). However, in my mind strength gain is a much better indicator of progressthan weight gain.
RPM specific observations:
1. Great non jittery energy, and mental focus
2. Strong appetite suppression at the right dose (for me it was anything over 4 caps)
3. Good strength gain
4. Heightened sense of smell (yes it's weird observation)
Drive specific observations:
1. Insane pumps that never fully went away
2. Excellent stength gain
3. Significant increase in sex drive
Neovar specific observations:
1. Dramatic increase in appetite
2. Good pumps
3. Good strenght increase
Keep in mind that I made some nice progress despite being sleep deprived (my kids are killing me), fighting through a number of injury issues, and getting sick acouple of times.
One of these supplements caused me to have some noticable break out on my back. I have been unable to pinpoint which one is the cause. I also had some mild headaches early on in the log. However, I can't say for sure it was related to any of the supplements I was taking. Other than that I really can't think of a single noticable side effect.
After the first of the year i will be starting a Drive only log. My main goal will be to get 420 lbs on flat bench. Until then i hope everyone has a great holiday season.
Very nice results! have a happy holidy too devil!
