3-AD: Putting "thesinner" back in "synergy"
- 04-11-2008, 09:04 AM
120lbs, I can already feel a ton of pressure on my sternum. It is funny, b/c just about everyone at my gym can't dip their own bodyweight, or just barely can dip their own bodyweight, so it is an 'awe' thing when I actually add weight to dip with.
Also are all your exercises to failure ?

Research has shown sets to failure vs. gains to function towards an assymptote (naturally, it's related nth order reactions), so I figure I might as well do one set, make it count, and let my body's metabolism do the rest.
04-11-2008, 12:02 PM
I'll have to try that change. I read an article awhile back that showed that training to failure often was counterproductive. I think however they ran 3-4 sets to failure consecutively.
Doing only 1 set might be the answer.
I might change up my routine, add in more exercises and use less sets and run each one to failure.
Does this type of exercising allow for training the body parts more than once a week due to less volume, per se ?
04-11-2008, 12:50 PM
I've found that I'm much more content with making smaller but continuous gains, than simply "sucking the well dry", making all my gains up front, and frantically having to find another way to grow.
You could probably go a little more frequency due to the dramatically less volume. Depending on how many sets you're doing, I wouldn't work the same group more than twice per week. The gains don't come as fast, but they also don't stop coming.

I left a question in an other thread for hank, so if you guys ee him let him know.

Sinner, Great log so far!
You seem to have an approach that is similar to mine, which is the Mike Mentzer / Dorian Yates "Heavy Duty" philosophy of weight training.
My question is: do you ever take a periodic break from the training-to-failure, 1-set-per-exercise (with negative reps) style? Every so often I like to confuse the muscles by doing drop sets, or doing high-rep sets with lighter weights.

hunny buns i have to say its a really nice log you got here , you got the usual hijackers and trolls but other than that good log bro

Here's another progress picture.
Hopefully this will shut crader up
One thing I've been noticing with 3-AD is that I'm having amazing sleep. A li'l too amazing, though because I never want to get out of bed in the morning.
Off day today. Gonna go jump some rope later today.
04-12-2008, 08:19 PM
so what have ur gains been like n 3-ad?
04-12-2008, 08:40 PM
So far, I've put on about 3lbs, which in about 3 weeks isn't half bad. For a single component cycle, I usually put on about 3-5lbs in 4 weeks, so this is pretty much on schedule.
I'll have to post my weekly measurements tomorrow.

Cardio this weekend was kinda blah. I've been kinda tired, so I'm just takin' 'er easy.
Science term of the weekend: The Reynold's Number (Re) - this is a unitless parameter used to determine the flow character of a moving fluid. It's essentially the ratio of inertia to viscosity. It's used to classify 3 types of flow. Re < 2100 is laminar flow, Re > 4000 is turbulent flow, 2100>Re>4000 is transition flow, think transvestite: you don't know what the heck's going on. I'll have to explain laminar flow tomorrow. There's a pretty good analogy for it.
04-13-2008, 01:13 PM
Laminar flow is like a stream flowing smoothly in a strait direct line. Turbulent flow is like a stream going through a turn with back eddys. Transition flow is a mix of the two.
04-13-2008, 01:28 PM
kinda. laminar flow has a tendency to get caught up against the sides of the pipe, creating what's know as a "boundary layer". The best way to visualize laminar flow (I guess I'll have to talk about another science term tomorrow) is to look at your feet when you walk. The fluid particles will pick up, move a little bit, and set back down. The reason why golfballs have dimples and fish have scales are actually due to this boundary layer phenomenon. The rough/textured surface helps to minimize the boundary layer around the golfball/fish allowing it to travel better through the air or water.
Turbulent flow doesn't actually have to go through a turn, it just needs to move really fast through the pipe. Going through a turn will often make the flow more turbulent in character. What happens is the momentum builds up, and it gives the viscous forces the big ol' Turbulent flow can often be used for usung "plug flow" estimation. Plug flow, meaning you assume the fluid doesn't get tied up along the edges, and flows though the pipe like solid "plug" (kinda like a bullet firing outta the chamber, if that helps you visualize it).

Your science articles remind me on the most useless commentary in a magazine I read today about how the Large Hadron Collider is going to create a stranglet or a blackhole and wipe out civilization. There's actually a filing to stop the operation of the $ 7 billion LHC lol.
Anyways looking good sinner, I might do a run of 3 AD. I've been on DTH for 5 weeks now and I have been quite disappointed, which is odd because I heard amazing things about it and so I bought the twin pack :S Oh well
04-13-2008, 03:55 PM
If you end up doing a run, please log it. I'd love to follow. I'm really eager to see what this stuff can do at higher doses. A couple of the other loggers have done 6 caps per day with really awesome results.Anyways looking good sinner, I might do a run of 3 AD.

lookin good in them photos! no homo!
04-13-2008, 05:53 PM
Went and did some more jumprope this afternoon (was a little disappointed by this morning's performance). I think after getting food in me, I did much better. Also, the rope got tangled, and the figure 8 smacked me in the eye. Good times. I'll try to post up a pick of the bruise if it develops darm enough to see.
04-13-2008, 05:55 PM
Hey sin have any of your effects dropped off at all? Strength gains, libido, aggression?
E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

I think that all steroids amplify your real personality. If you are an ******* in real life then you are twice as bad on cycle.

I may have missed it, but are you using Spiro/Oral Finasteride/Nizoral/Minoxidial/AA, or any combination therein to combat hair loss?
This compound should be somewhat detrimental to the hairline of those with andro., alopecia, though user logs don't reflect that.
04-13-2008, 10:42 PM
Haven't really had much noticible differences in hairloss. Then again, I've always had a really high crown.
Not using any hairloss stuff.
04-14-2008, 07:19 AM
Back & Biceps today. Second to last day of my cycle ...wait...that means it's almost over....
Barbell Row: 245*10
Weighted Pullups: 90*5
Incline DB Curls (4 count negative): 50*11
Donkey Calf Raise: 20
Dragon Flags: 20
Pumps have been nothing short of phenomenal this past week. Although there's little direct correlation between just getting a "pump" and building muscle, it can be a sign of an optimal growth environment as some anaolic hormones (NOT Nitric Oxide) can create this effect; hence the misconstrued association between a "pump" and building mass, followed by the flawed theory behind NO products.
Science term of the day: Anti-Matter - Matter is anything and everthing comprised of atoms. Atoms being small particles comprised of electrons, neutrons and protons. In 1932, the discovery of what's know as a "positron" was made. A positron is the same size as an electron, but with opposite charge (positive instead of negative). Anti-matter refers to an atom made of "positrons" and "anti-protons" (protons with a negative charge). Antimatter is incredibly unstable and must remain suspended in a perfect vacuum.

I'm probably one of the few here that hates the pumps. When I'm pumped it hinders my workouts.
04-14-2008, 09:20 AM
I thought that a 'pump' is nothing more than localized edema within a muscle group ?
04-14-2008, 01:25 PM
I was quite disappointed with the results this far, so I might just do a final review. I really liked the Coq Diesel+Trib Test Extreme, and had heard good things about DTH, but for me it just hasn't delivered.
Anyways good luck with your last WO today on 3-AD,and update us how the PCT goes.
04-15-2008, 07:39 AM
Last Day of 3-AD.
Legs & Shoulders.
Front Squat: 205*9
Walking Lunges: 60's*22
DB Military Press: 80*9
DB Side Laterals: 25*13
Seated Calf Raise: 14
Decline Crunches: 25*16
Great Workout. It seems like 3-AD really started kicking into high gear during the 3rd week for me, as I've noticed much greater improvements in overall workout performance lately. Kinda busy this morning, so I'll put together my final review either later today or tomorrow.
Science term of the day: Tachyon. Had to save the best for last In the super string theory (actual name for quantum physics theory), it is believed that 3 types of particles exist: bosons, fermions, tachyons. It is also believed that mass functions with velocity. Particles containing mass approach a limit of 3 billion meters per second (speed of light). Particles traveling at the speed of light (i.e. photons), obviously have no mass (otherwise tanning beds would crush you ). Henceforth, a tachyon is something with a negative mass, that travels FASTER than the speed of light. What I've always found fascinating about this concept is that the speed of light is what limits your perception of things. In other words, when you see a car driving down the street, there's a minute lag time between the car's position in space, and the time it takes for the image to reach your eyes. In the event of a tachyon, it would be long gone before the brief streak of itself would make its way to your eyes. If you were a tachyon, and stopped abruptly, you could see the image of yourself coming towards you.

Todays science term was interesting. Glad to hear the 3AD is working for you.
04-15-2008, 09:39 AM
Sin you got to read The Fabric of the Cosmos! I'm only 100 pages in and it started off with just some general knowledge but it is really getting interesting. I think you would really like it (although some of it may be redundant/boring for you overall its solid.)
04-16-2008, 02:00 PM
Lets' see. I owe you guys a review, huh?
Ok, here's the summary
Gains: 3 lbs
Increases in size:
Would I run it again?
How would I run it differently in the future?
-I would definitely run it at higher doses (5-6 caps), stack with another compound, or both. I'd be sure to eat more carbs while using.
04-16-2008, 03:13 PM
Nice gains boss. I'm a little upset that you're log is over as those Science terms of the day were taking me back to my Chem Eng classes two years ago.
