alright guys, here was tonight's workout.
db bench: 115sx15, 9, 3
Smith Shoulder press: 180x11, 8, 4
I have switched from smith incline to hammer incline for my 2nd chest exercise. I like hammer better for the feel and it is also a better fit for my training style
Hammer incline: 230x 12, 8, 3 with a 20 second hold on the last rep
Db overhead Tri extension: 40x 15, 12, 6
seated DB lateral: 25sx 15, 12, 8
Tricep Pulldown: dropset from 50 lbs. down to 20 lbs.
I also finished with pushups to failure, which after this workout was only 21, lol
Capped it off with stretching and then half hour on the treadmill, 30 mins at 7.0 incline, 3.6 mph
haven't used any stims preworkout in a week now, which is not usual for me
update: did 45 min of cardio in the AM yesterday
went to workout tonight, did my warm up sets on my rack deadlifts and started feeling kinda dizzy and lightheaded. tried to switch to my military press to see if it would get any better...didn't work. I don't know what was wrong with me tonight, I have never had a problem getting going once im in the gym. I had a pretty open schedule today and I slept a good 10-11 hours, which I haven't done in awhile, I think it was from that. Gonna get to bed early tonight and get up early and get a good workout in, and then have my scheduled cheat meal post workout...very happy, haven't had one in 3 or 4 weeks
alright, i have had insomnia the last few days, but I still managed to get in a great workout this morning. here's how it went:
bench: 275x6, 295x6, 315x3, 325x1
Rack Deads: 405x5, 495x5, 515x2, 455x5
Power Shrugs: 315x6, 315x6, 315x6
Standing Military: 185x5, 185x4, 175x5
Followed this up with 30 min cardio on the elliptical and did the sit up machine in between sets, I have been slacking on my core work lately. Does anyone else ever notice that sit up/crunch machines where you sit down tend to get used as chairs by old people?
Followed this up with my scheduled cheat meal, went to golden corral with a couple friends. Proceded to throw it back up when I got back home Nonetheless, I figured I would have a cheat meal as my carbs are being cut from 200 down to 100 for the next month starting tomorrow. I am only down about 12 lbs. so far (although I am holding water from the TTA), so hopefully cutting it back will help speed things up
to anyone that has used or is using this stuff, have you noticed any sides? I have been getting a few nosebleeds the last few days and I dunno if it's from the MMV2 or just because allergy season has started. I have gotten nosebleeds from BP increase from PHs before. It seemed to start a few days after I added in receptor
no, haven't noticed anything, haven't checked my bp in a couple weeks tho. i'll check tomorrow
Checked my blood pressure just last week. And it was AFTER a 30 minute walk. It was 132 over 77!!! That's really good for my age and size. 43 years old and 265 lbs. So, I don't think it's the MMV2. But keep a close check on your BP dude!! Be safe!! THE THUNDERGOD
front loading hawthorne berries works good for keeping bp at normal range while on cycle, probably to late to start now, but something to think about next time.
thanks for all the replies guys. My high BP symptoms only lasted a few days, so I dunno if it was stress or what. Been sleeping fine the last few nights and no more nosebleeds (despite some picking). I have upped it to 2 MMV2 first thing in the AM and 2 more preworkout, this is making it easier for me to sleep at night. I did cardio in the AM yesterday and legs today, here's how it went:
Squats: 315x5, 365x5, 405x5, 315x5
I have been kinda stagnant on squats lately, so I will probably switch to a 20 rep set next week and go up 10 lbs. every week.
Straight legged deads: I do these as a drop set, with 4 25 lbers on each side and take one off after each set of 8
Standing smith calf raises: did a bunch of sets of these from 90 lbs. up to 270
DB Step ups: 50 lbs. x 8 for 3 sets
finished this with 20 min of cardio on the treadmill, with 3.5 minutes of 3.5 mph at a 5.0 incline and then 1.5 minutes of 6.5 mph at 0 incline. gonna add this in some postworkout
I need to regularize my cardio, get into some pattern of what days I do it, and do it consistently
I was in a hurry today to get my workout in before work, so I went drop sets on everything except DB press
DB press: 120s x 14, 7, 3
Smith Shoulder Press: 190x6, 170x8, 160x8
Hammer Incline: 240x8, 190x8, 140x8
Overhead Tricep extension: 45sx8, 40sx8, 35sx8, 30sx8
Leaning side lateral: 50sx10, 45sx10, 40sx10, 35sx10, 30sx10
Rope Pushdown: 130x8, 120x8, 110x7, 100x6, 90x5, 80x5
Then stretched. No cardio today since I was in a hurry, today was the first day in about 6 days when I didn't do it. i haven't weighed myself lately, i will tomorrow. In about a week and a half I am going to be off the TTA, so that should make me lose another 5-10 lbs. of water. I believe I will also be getting my bodyfat measured again in the next couple weeks. still no more of the high BP symptoms, so I really don't think it was anything I am taking, so the only sides I am really seeing is occasional acne, which I get once in awhile anyways. Strength is climbing still with carbs down, which has never happened for me before.
I concur Warnerve, I also have never been able to remain so strong, while dieting so strictly. My carbs are way low right now. Yet, I feel strong and energetic. MMV2 rocks!!
I am feeling good, and below 10mm on the bodyfat calipers! not the most impressive thing in some ways (means about 13-14%) but at the beginning of this log at about the same weight (within a lb) I was calipering in the 11-12mm (15-16%)range
Definitely enjoying the mmv2!
