Building Bigger Guns
Goal: Since this will be a month long log I will be shooting for an increase in arm size and burning some fat off.
I will be training 4 days a week. I will be doing some cardio before lifting no more then 10-15mins on the elliptical. Might even do some cardio on Thursday...

Mon - Chest / 1 tri / abs
Tue - Back / 1 bi / calfs
Wed - Legs / shoulders / abs
Thur - off
Friday - Arms/ abs
Food: I will be going for a clean diet of healthy foods,
oatmeal/rice/soups/cereal/wheat bread/ peanut
Eat something every 2 to 3 hours during the day. I will only have 2 protein shakes a day, pre workout and pre sleep.
Nutra- ALA caps

Nice log. I love watching pumpin iron. Best part is when arnold says "lets get serious" lol.
11-03-2007, 01:40 AM
Very true, I watch it all the time. Its a great motivator, after watching it I want to go to the gym.

Dang I took 1 does of Poseidon yesterday and omg I thought I was going to die!! Im trying it again now with a half a scoop and more water to see how I react to it. Im only taking it in the am when I wake up, and yesterday I had one hella Niacin flush. My face and arms were on fire, I had to lie down and chill out for a few mins. Anyone else have a reaction like I did, I was expecting a tingle or something mild, then bam I was on fire!

Workout - Chest, 1 tri and abs
Supp's today- Poseidon 1 scoop after waking up/ Preworkout protein/ IntrAbolic / IntraXcell/ pre sleep protein.
I followed the instructions and only took 1 serving of IntraXcell post workout.
IntrAbolic- Taste- The taste is not as great as the smell(it smells really damn good), it will take a few trys to get the correct amount of water. Im sure it will grow on me I just wish I could drink it all before the workout. I felt like I was dehydrating while working out as Im used to drinking a lot of water.
No increase in performance today other then the fact that I actually went 17mins on the elliptical after working out! Man that was killer because its been so long since I did any cardio.
Im going to post the last weights and reps for each workout instead of all the sets.
Incline BB bench- 205lbs x 3
Flat DB bench- 85lbs x 8
Incline DB bench - 55lbs x 10
Incline Hammer strength - 160lbs x 10
Cable Tri Extensions - 42.5lbs x 10
Decline Crunches - 100 total
Elliptical - 18mins 2.26miles
My cam is messing up, I will try to get a few pics from the gym tomorrow.
11-05-2007, 10:58 PM
Nice pictures and workout! Good luck Pump.

Oh I loved the cardio on IXL and SE! I was sore as **** yesterday after the workout, I forgot to mention it!

The Bomb dropped right before I was going to the gym. Well yesterday my gf of over 2 years tells me were taking a break. Never has this happened before and Im pretty sure its over. I didnt go to the gym yesterday as I would have probably dropped something on myself from lack of spirit/chi/energy/heart being on the floor.
Due to this information- I am going to be changing up the split, to a 3 day workout and 2 day cardio. I think more rest will equal more growth. I use my arms for everything, everyday. Therefore allowing them more rest time should equal more growth correct?
The Goal is still increase arm size and leave some fat on the elliptical.
The Split b/c of a Split- Workout
Thur- Cardio/ calves
Fri- Arms/shoulders abs
I will still be doing post work out cardio.
And anyone with any advice on my new workout split or food or supps please chime in.

I am truly sorry for your loss man. I can sympathize, as I broke up my my gf recently. I just encourage you to stay positive and confident that God has someone better for you to marry!
11-07-2007, 11:13 AM
Sorry to hear about that man
I feel the same way with regards to arms. I think I used to severely overtrain them, so this should certainly help.
11-07-2007, 09:50 PM
Todays Workout- Back/Hamstrings
I pushed through my workout today, I had pretty good strength in the gym today considering the circumstances. I didnt go heavy on anything just mostly for reps.
These are the last set's/reps.
laying hamstring curls- 135lbsx 18
BB rows - 145 x 18
Cable rows- 160x 15
Lat pull downs to chest- 140x 12
Cardio- 18mins x 2.48miles
The taste today was better I added more water and I never felt dehydrated. I had about 22-24oz of water mixed, that seems to be a pretty good area. I felt a strong pump on my forearms/bi's/back/hamstrings today so that was pretty good.

11-08-2007, 12:21 PM
11-08-2007, 02:41 PM
nice log brother!! The taste definitely grows on you!! Making sure its cold also helps ... keep up the good work!

The Score I got a date on Mon, Ill just have to see where it goes. Same young woman but damn it I dont want to lose her. I can only cross my fingers and pray! I got 2 fortune cookies over these 2 days, One said my luck will go up soon, the other said I would make someone very happy! Whats funny is I said god give me a sign before I opened them up!
Can you Feel it? I got the BA tingles AGAIN tonight on the 2nd dose today!! I love them they are so great! Thanks for following along brothers and for the support!
Tomorrows workout! is Arms/Shoulders/Abs! I love how its only been 5 days and already my cardio distance is increasing, with little effort. I plan to be back to 2 miles in 10mins before this is over!!
11-09-2007, 09:13 AM
11-09-2007, 10:18 AM
That's great man, congrats. I'm the same exact way on the cardio, it helps so much, and so quickly.
11-09-2007, 04:14 PM
The Workout- ARMS no shoulders not enough time, ill have to superset them in on leg days instead.
These are set 4, still going for higher reps on first 3 sets
straight BB curls- 105lbs x 12
Incline DB curls- 40lbs x 10
cable curls- 120lbs x 12
Low cable extensions- 160lbs x 18
High cable extensions- 42.5 x 18
Cardio - Well I switched it up some and ran for 1-2mins at time then walked 1-2mins at time, I did this back and forth for 15mins, went 2.01 miles. Less then on the other ellepticals but I was never doing it this way. I talked to Marsha a fitness model up there and she said thats the best way and its what she does before a comp.
Taste- Today I just filled up the bottle with cold water, drank it till it was 2/3rds down. Then filled it up again, and I did this 3 times total. By the 3rd time the water was not very cold and the taste kinda declines, not enough to make stop drinking it though. So far this stuff kicks ass!
Pump- The Pump was great in my Bi's/Tri's today! Veins popping out and everything! I will try to get shots of them next Friday at the gym. Feeling really good now my arms are not as sore as I thought they would be, usually they feel like falling off. I didnt do as many workouts as I usually do so that plus the IA/IX helping out a lot!
What would mixing in some steel edge do? Is that possible? or not recommended ?
Pics End of the First week. Ill try and get better shots in the gym next time.
11-10-2007, 06:53 PM
Nice work out your log so far, you efforts as much appreciated.
11-11-2007, 01:24 AM
Thats awesome b/c I happen to have some Steel Edge left over! Woot! I will give it a shot on monday!

Todays Workout - Chest/Back
lite weight higher reps for 1st 3 sets.
BB Incline bench - 205lbs x 5
T-bar rows - 135lbs x 10
BB flat chest close grip - 145lbs x 12
DB flat chest 1 set - 60lbs x 8
Hammer strength incline 1 set - 135lbs x 12
BB rows 1 set - 145lbs x 18
Machine flys 1 set - 105lbs x 14
Cardio - 15 mins and 2.05 miles, Running for 3 mins walking for 2 mins. This is getting too easy now, Im going to have to start upping the resistance.
Taste - The taste is growing on me more and more. I have found that about 20oz-24oz of water and once it gets down to about 2/3rd I fill it up again. The green apple is a good flavor once and it only takes about 3-4 drinks to get used to it.
My Steel Edge was not good any more.... so I will have to wait to try that out sometime later lol.
11-12-2007, 04:16 PM
Is tonight the night you go out with your X?
11-12-2007, 04:44 PM
Yes, keeping fingers crossed and praying that it goes good. I talked to her on the phone last night for an hour. I got to tell her how she has torn me apart and she got to tell me how shes not my girlfriend right now... so there is still some hope left. Im letting god guide me through the jungle.
Keeping up my spirit - I have been playing Kanye West - Stronger , a lot lately. Good song and kick ass music video.
Along with anything else up beat and rockin out.
Interview - Ive got a interview tomorrow for a security job. Im just going to see what they are about, hours/pay. Just looking at getting into a crj field, id prefer to go corrections for now but Im keeping my options open. Depending on what class's are offered these next 2 to 3 quarters I should be done with my AD.
11-12-2007, 04:46 PM
when you get back tonight, let us know how it went!!! :bruce2:
11-12-2007, 06:13 PM
nice job subbed! good luck with the girl bro!!
11-12-2007, 09:34 PM
The Date - I knew there was a reason I love her so much that I couldn't give up. We are dating again but taking it slow. I have to give my props to God, if he wasn't in our lives we'd be lost forever. She was so beautiful tonight, plus she gave me a card and paid for my dinner. She is the greatest girl that I could ever meet and I almost missed out on being in her world. I couldn't stop staring at her the whole time. On a funny note, our waitress carded me for my roadhouse iced tea and noticed it was my birthday.So she made me stand up in front of our booth, and then lets everyone in the restaurant know about it and had them give me a yeeehawwww.... lol
Tomorrow- I'm going with her brother to her school tomorrow b/c she's the basketball cheer leading coach and there first game is tomorrow at 6!
Thank you guys for your support though this dark time, everything in life is a learning experince and I learned a lot. Just give it up to god.
Having tuff times? Then grab yourself some IntrAbolic and IntraXcell. The BA tingle will scoop you out of hell! It will make you run longer, see farther, and lift harder. Your tuff times will be over in no time with the help of AEN! There the great people on the forum you love.

Since I didn't put this at the start of the log but on Non Workout Days I'm taking 2 servings of IntraXcell - 1 when I wake up and 1 later in the day.
Lighter Weight more reps
4th set -
Leg Extensions- 270lbs x 14
BB shrugs- 275lbs x 15
Squats- 225lbs x 12 ( 2 sets of 145lbs till bar touches rack x 15-20)
Leg press- 360lbs x 18
Leg Extensions- 90lbs x 30
Crunches- x 150
Cardio- No cardio yesterday.
Taste The taste just continues to grow on you, its great! I ran by NutraPlanet yesterday before lifting and I was sipping on my IntrAbolic and Darren stated about how cool the color looks. Its a green unlike any other, it looks solid, even after 2 refills at the water fountain.
Recovery I am now noticing the recovery effects of the IntrAbolic w/IntraXcell as my legs feel pretty good today. I can jump and run around no problems, usually it takes another day of rest before my legs feel this good.
Endurance- Every time I feel my body is about to stop lifting, I pause holding the weight for a few seconds and get out another 2 to 5 reps or more. Like yesterday on the last set of leg extensions I got to around 12 reps and my legs were on fire. I pumped out another 5 to hit 17 total, I paused for a couple of secs then pumped out 13 more to hit 30 total reps. My legs on the last few sets felt like they were being ripped apart but I was able to push past the pain and keep lifting.
