I can imagine it will totally rock for biceps and tris, given how it feels for shoulders.

woke up at 196 today, and feeling a little beat, so decided to take today as my day off and do abs/cardio tomorrow (or just live with only 2 of those this week) some progress pics. whats notable here is that the shirt is a size M, its the first time i've even tried to put one on since high school. the pants are a 32 waist.

The pump is pretty interesting. Its not like pslin pumps, cause those I end up being forced to do lower than normal weights to just continue a workout. Here I hit new highs on some of the curls. Still quite a pump, on a few of the exercises I could feel the blood rush back into my forearms after the last rep.

yuck i'm not doing that again....
I took 2 full scoops of ragnarok as well as hemodraulix pre workout.
It didn't quite work out. I basically went from warmup to painful pumps, and severely limited strength due to those painful pumps. Also, I had some joint pain, but just in my one shoulder that does that occasionally, but it was worse than usual. That may be the x-factor as well, so i dug up a bottle of super cissus, and will also be cracking into xyience xmotion today.
flat bb bp barx20 (and had a pump at this point already) 95x6, 135x4, 115x4, 95x3
Tried some flat db presses in case it was more the bb, no dice - 60x3, 40x4 (and its too depressing to go lower than that)
incline bb 95x12, 95x8
machine decline press 70x14, 60x12
I did a prayer for tris
Seated bb tri extensions 50x6, 50x6, 50x5
standing db extensions 15x10, 15x9
tricep pushdowns 70x14
man did that suck and hurt. I had close to a normal end of workout pump on chest + tris at the end of doing the 20 flat with the bar as warmup. Way way way too much, I should have tried just 1 scoop of ragnarok. oh well. hopefully still got some hypertrophy in.

so today went with 1 scoop ragnarok + hemodraulix. now that was nice! that will be the recipe for here forwards
Behind the neck shoulder presses 45x20 as warmup and started a pump, 95x6, 105x6, 95x6
bent over lateral extensions - 10x12,10x12,10x12
wide grip vertical rows 60x10, 60x10, 60x10
alternating front raises + lateral extensions 10x12, 10x11
arnold presses 15x25
vsquats 150x20 as warmup
leg presses 350x6, 550x6, 650x1, 350x6
leg extensions 125x12, 125x12
Quite nice the pump on the rag/hemodraulix combo, particularly considering that its hard for me to get good shoulder pumps. this should be a sweet combo monday for back/bis.
Tried muscle delight pwo. The smell in the bottle is totally awesome. First sip taste was almost disappointing compared to the smell (as expectations were high) but it was still a great taste. I hit the bottom of the cup and wanted more Had just the right amount of sweetness, and a good mouth feel. The chocolate taste was about on a par with EAS whey, which is pretty damn good.

have you had that "Nectar" protein easy? All i can say is it is the most amazing tasting protein every. Doesn't even taste like protein at all WOW!!!!!!

I keep some of their lemonade here ALWAYS, and like the Crystal sky a lot too. didn't like the carribean whatever too much, and the apple was pretty decent. I need to try the remaining flavors
02-29-2008, 06:01 PM
The strawberry kiwi is amazing man you have to try it. IO never want to stop drinking it.They need to make it cheaper though What does the crystal one taste like?

the crystal is sort of a fruit punch, tropical style. its really a nice punch

was kinda bored, and missing the gym, so I went and worked out in the community gym this evening. Used 1 scoop ragnarok + hemodraulix
flat smith bp 125x6,155x6, 165x4, 155x5
incline smith press 115x10, 125x9
decline db press 35x15, 35x13
machine press 75x14
standing triceps extension 50x6, 50x6, 45x6
machine triceps pushdowns 62.5x10, 62.5x9
pushdowns using lat machine 50x14, 35x14
incline db flies 15x19
pretty good feeling workout! my triceps are completely cranked to where its hard to type even. my chest is pretty pumped too. I think I have to switch to db chest presses, its really almost entirely right shoulder limiting me. after the 2nd or third rep over 100lbs, it starts to hurt. Doesn't hurt with dumbbells.
03-03-2008, 09:25 PM
went for anothe evening workout, back/bis. One scoop of ragnarok on a not empty stomach + hemodraulix.
wide grip pulldowns 100x20, 150x6, 160x6, 170x4, 150x6
close grip rows 120x10, 130x8
db rows 40x20, 40x20
bb curls 60x6, 60x6, 70x3, 60x5
incline hammer curls 25x10, 25x10
concentration curls 25x15, 25x12
ez curls 40x17, 35x16, 25x19 (dang well couldn't reach 20)
QUITE nice. really really nice. best pump in a long time. Good vascularity too for me, could see the major vein on each bicep, and a few more were visible on the forearm than usual.
I had some moderate doms from yesterday too, expecting tomorrow to be even moreso

forgot to update this morning
leg lifts bentx20, straightx15
oblique machine 100x10
decline crunch 25, 25
side bends 35x20
leg pull ins 100x15, 100x13
decline crunch 25
and then 24 min of mid intensity cardio heartrate from 130-145. I'm now 24 hours into a slightly modified velocity diet (cant use fish oil while on x-factor) and its going decently. Hunger is down already, and i've had solid bowel movements so I must be adding enough psyllium husks. Not quite sure how long I will do this for, at least a week, possibly longer depending on progress and how I feel. Then 2-3 weeks transitioning back, slowly adding 1 solid meal a day every few days. I should be able to hit 185lbs and be at maybe 12%ish bodyfat within a couple weeks like this was 193 this morning. I'm using the diet tracker too now just to have it all be in there
