x-factor 1250mg/levithan reloaded recomp with some twists!
- 03-18-2008, 07:17 AM
Hmm we're around day 35ish. I think I started feb 11-12th. So the factor has been well kicked in now. I guess I should recap supplementation as i've made changes
a product I can't name or talk about
another product I can't name or talk about
on break from dcp, will restart in 2 weeks
occasionally rpm +/ drive as preworkout , not taken daily
heres a pic of the gym, just to make christine more jealous. I'm jealous of her 25 kilo drums of RK

I'll trade you the drum for the gym
Actually I'm making good progress with the trainer, my problem is that I'm starting to hate the training. Some days it makes me sick others its just a painful struggle to get through.
So a gym at home would be nice!! But i know what I need to do. You know I've never even used the RK's...

well, the main reason I went with the home gym was just that with the baby coming, its so hard to say when i'd get the opportunity to go to the regular gym. I mean between driving, workout, shower, etc I have to block out about 1.5-2 hours to do that. with it in the house I can knock out a body area in 20-30 minutes, doing that 2 separate times a day much easier. Its not exactly the baby itself, its more trying to keep the other 2 occupied and not at each others throats or crying. The 3 year old sat in the room with me while I worked back + bis last nite sort of my own little cheerleader

not sure, but the bench press section is rated to more than 325
so i'd imagine the true squat station is good to over 400, and the lat pulldown to the 300 range tooOriginally Posted by The manual

pretty damn nice gym, hows it feel to you? everything natural?
Also I keep lookin at that pick and cant figure out the lat pull down station, the backrest looks a lil un comfy and I hope that preacher bench coms down to tighten on the tops of your legs good???
03-18-2008, 03:19 PM
feels pretty good, mostly natural. the preacher curls were a little odd. with the lat pulldowns you sit facing away from the preacher curl. the base of that seat adjusts its angle so it works pretty well. i'm still working out rows
03-18-2008, 03:32 PM
aaahhhhh I sseeeeeeee. looks good my man. How much total weight did it come with again and how much it set you back?
03-18-2008, 03:36 PM
came with 250lbs 2-45s, 2-35s, 2-25s, 2-10s, 4-5s. Was $650 delivered + installed, came with a slightly rusty 7' olympic bar too

ah I never updated yesterday. it was abs and HIIT, same as today. just decline crunches + leg lifts both days, nothing exotic yesterday was 20 minutes HIIT, today was 45. I realized looking at my heart rate monitor that I burned somewhere over 2/3 of my daily caloric intake, which seems freaky. Wasn't even tired, only stopped because it was getting late. heart rate in the 140-175 range.
still at 188, but thats down from 190 monday. the weekend was a weekend full-o-cheats, including california pizza kitchen, cold stone creamery(kids size tho), beer + wings + ribs at buffalo wild wings, etc.

so heres what having a home gym means, I decided to whup out shoulders tonite as I was feelin good after dinner
seated military press 70x10, 70x6, 70x4 (not sure what bar weight would be)
front db raises supersetted with lateral extensions 10x10 - 10x10, 10x10-10x10, 10x9-10x8
bent over lateral extensions 10x15, 10x20
not bad, was 20 minutes or so and feels like it was a good workout just barely broke a sweat
03-21-2008, 09:02 AM
today was legs. again all weights are without system bar weight, which i have no idea on
leg extensions 70x10, 70x12, 70x12
leg curls 70x10, 70x6, 70x5
squats supersetted with calfraises 90x10-90x10, 90x12-90x12, 90x10-90x12
the squats and curls feel pretty normal, the extensions were a little odd. I have to play with the settings a bit next time. I think on squats the arms weight is probably at least 50lbs. The range of motion is great too, goes to well below parallel, maybe 6 inches shy of ass to heels.

E, are you still supplementing with HemodrauliX?
I found a combination that will have you hurting because the pumps are so full! Ugghhhh! They're nasty!
03-21-2008, 09:19 AM
03-21-2008, 09:19 AM
I had to put the hemo aside because of something i'm taking that I cant talk about
I'm definitely going back to it afterwards tho, will probably keep a bottle perpetually in the house. I found that 2 scoops of ragnarok + hemodraulix makes pumps so severe it will ruin a workout :P 1 scoop and hemo was perfect tho. serious solid hard slightly painful pumps, but with increased strenth and endurance.
03-22-2008, 09:29 AM
187 today. but a small problem has cropped up, I ran out of x-factor. wasn't paying attention to what was left in the bottle, so I hadn't ordered a 3rd bottle yet. Soonest i'd have it is tuesday at this point (as I don't think any local stores carry it). So that would be 3 days out. I'm kind of thinking of dropping the xfactor for now (will have been 40 days at 1250mg) and just returning to it in another month or two. This way i can tack sesamin, fish oils, cla etc back in for my fat loss loss home stretch
03-22-2008, 08:18 PM
Serendipity / Fate is funny sometimes. So I was kinda bent about not realizing I ran out of x-factor today, cause it would have been easy enough to have ordered some during the week. Just wasn't paying attention to the bottle or day count...
But today when I popped into the local vitamin shoppe to see if the manager was in to set up an applied nutriceuticals demo, they had 2 bottles of Udo's 3/6/9 oil on clearance, which I never would have bought on x-factor...
03-23-2008, 03:54 AM
..... they didnt have the X factor there at the VS??? they do at my gym partners VS.
either way thats a goo set of circumstances that you were able to happen upon some cheap omegas
03-23-2008, 07:59 PM
I didn't see it there, but the salespeople were both busy, and the wife + kids were in the car so I didn't want to spend too much time in there
Today was a change of workouts. moved to a full body routine, going to try to do it sun tue fri and see how that goes, possibly sun wed fri. today it consisted of
Squats 90x20 (almost passed out at the end. still could probably do a little more weight, just the volume is brutal. doing 20 reps on purpose)
db flies 10x20, 10x20
incline press 50x20, 50x15
wide grip pulldowns 110x20
chest supported low rows - 50x20
standing military press 50x20
seated tricep extension 40x20
preacher curls 30x15, 30x6
lying leg curls 60x20, 60x20
Was really shooting for 1 set of 20 with failing at 21 for each exercise. remember that most of these weights are "plus weight of arm" so give the construction of this gym its a significant amount.
then for dinner we went to roys. man did I eat like a pig, but mostly pretty clean. ahi poke as an appetizer, an grilled salmon + tofu salad with a light vinagrette then ono topped with crab and a spicy butter sauce on the side. Had a little bit of rice (not even 1/4 cup worth), major spot I blew it was at dessert, I hald almost half of a hazelnut flan with a carmel sauce + praline pecans around it. damn it was good tho.

2nd full body workout today...
decline bp 70x20
db flies 10x20
leg extensions 70x20
wide grip pulldowns 110x20
neck high rows 55x20
arnold press 26x18
bent over lateral db extensions 10x20
standing triceps ezbar extensions 53x17
ezbar curls 53x20
doing 20 reps with failure right about there is rough stuff. I might be able to go 10lbs higher on squats, but I might pass out on #20 if I do.
