Tomorrow evening im going to help coach wrestling for two hours. im gonna try to dose my second serving of drive b4 that, so we will see how that goes

whats your weight at now?
11-23-2007 12:38 AM
Wide Grip Pullups(weighted)
10lbx8, 10lbx8, 15lbx6, 15x5
Rows(rowing machine)140x8 145x8, 150x7, 155x6
120x10, 125x7, 125x7, 130x4
30x10, 35x8, 35x6, 40x3
Romanian Deadlifts 205x10, 215x8, 215x8, 225x6
These numbers are all from yesterdays workout. good energy. My back is nice and sore. I also helped with my old wrestling team for about 2 hours wrestling around and trying to teach. There is no lack of energy with this stuff. As far as weight is concerned I did step on the scale after wrestling and I showed 150.6. However this was after a wrestling practice where i worked up a nice sweat. But the weights are still creeping up and the energy is still there.

up those cals big man. 2k is the standard amount of cals one should take in per day. now that you're lifting you're burning extra cals so you gotta make up for those and add some more. i had heard from somebody that 500 extra cals per day adds a pound a week. i've never been on the stack you're on but maybe with that you could gain more than a pound a week. especially cause you're a little bit smaller so you may have greater gains. keep it up.

^^^ i dont think thats true 500 extra cals equals a pound a week if it were id be 300 lbs already lol
but he is right you are eating minimal of your goals were to bulk you should shoot for 3500 eating will be the only way you can grow (which im sure you already know)
11-23-2007 02:28 PM
haha ya i'm not saying for all weights but somebody had told me at that low of weight with so many natural gains to go. may be incorrect but i'd say at that low of weight it sounds to be correct.
11-24-2007 07:05 PM
i can see that when i starting lifting 2000 cals brought me from 120 to 130 in a week lol

Hey timmay have you tried rows with maybe a BB or with DB. i think you may be able to hit the back a lot more with proper form and see great results. just my opinion. good luck man keep it up

Today is the last day of the log, as I am now out of DRIVE. today was a good workout however, the shoulder pain is mostly gone. I was able to geta lil bit more on the arnold press and a few more reps on my lateral raise
Im gonna look over my log, get some numbers together, and geta final weight tomorrow morning. Ill post up my final review tomorrow. Ive been very impressed with this product. Ill be picking this up again in the near future.
As for diet, when i started this log 2000 cals was working great, good strength gains with only a little fat increase. Now that ive finished this log, im beginning to realize that my gains have slowed down alot, its probally time to increase the calories a bit. I guess I wasnt prepared for how well this stack worked.
Arnold Press- 50x10, 55x8, 55x8 60x6
BB Shrugs- 195x10, 205x8, 215x5
DB Shrugs- 90x12, 95x10, 100x7
Front Delt Raise- 130x12, 135x10, 140x8, 145x5
Lateral Raises- 25x10, 30x7, 35x5
Strength- up a little
Pumps- Great, good vascularity
Focus-Very Good Today

Very impressed with this stack. For those who didnt know, I ran 14 days a of drive prior to beginning this log. This final review will encompass this entire experience.
Final Weight: 152
Weight October 1st(1st day of 14 day drive log) 144
Weight October 22-(1st day of RPM/DRIVE) 148
TOTAL GAINS IN PAST 56 days: 8 lbs
Week of October 1st: 155x8
Week of October 22: 155x10
Week of October 1: IN SMITH MACHINE- 255x10
Week of October 22: IN SMITH MACHINE-305x9
Final: NO SMITH MACHINE- 275x8
Week of October 1st 135x12
Week of October 22 185x10
Overall i was impressed with this stack. I kinda wish I had changed my diet slightly as I kept the same 2000 calories the entire 56days. However 8 lbs in that time period is good in my book. Id recommend giving this stack a try. I found 5Drive/day and 3 rpm/workout to work great for me.

hey man good job. ya i think you could've made way more gains if your diet was maybe 3500 cals. at that low of weight with that much of a bump in the cal intake i think you could've doubled your gains. but that's just IMO. Did you keep in mind on the squats that on a smith machine the bar is only 15 pounds?
Also i used to do squats to where my butt and legs would be about at a 90 degree angle. idk if you do that now but if you do try to drop the weight a lot and go down as far as possible. i find i've made much more gains by this.
11-26-2007 08:05 PM
i didnt take that into consideration about the smith machine
so my adjusted weights would be
220x10 in smith
270x9 in smith
275x8out of smith
also i feel like when I go much deeper than parallel i start to lose my balance.
11-26-2007 09:33 PM
MOST DEFINITELY! i think many feel like they'll lose their balance. i'm guessing you fall forward? that could possibly be due to core strength or trying to lift to much weight or just so much other crap. try to focus on form on the smith machine squats. or another way is drop the weight drastically on your squats! i have knee problems so what i do is drop the weight a lot to get down low so it doesn't hurt as bad and then either superset with leg press or just go real heavy on leg press. try some stuff out to get your balance good and i think you'll feel a lot better after legs!
