cutting with LG mmv2
- 04-11-2008, 12:36 PM
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

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.
GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

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 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!

no, I should have said "i'm now calipering at 9-10mm, was calipering at 11-12 mm. So now i'm at 13-14% where I started at 15% at the same bodyweight"

and here was today's workout:
Reverse grip shoulder width pulldown: 200x 10, 7, 4
BB Bent over row: 185x10, 185x6, 135x 10, 135x5
Lat Pushdown: 130x 15, 9, 5
DB Curls: 45sx10, 5, 40sx9, 6, 35sx10, 5, 30sx10 all in one giant set. This was followed by 20 minutes of cardio in 3.5 minutes slow/1.5 minutes fast intervals
My meals have stayed pretty much the same as of late, usually 8-10 drumsticks, one serving of red meat, and either an omelet or fish, along with approx. 1/3 of a jar of natural pb. I also go through about 1/3-1/2 a gallon of milk a day. my carbs are usually apples, greenbeans, and wheat bread/wraps
Also, thanks to the guys who have been following along, I know my updates are really long and I tend to ramble

I think if all you are taking in is 40g all at once, then the difference between sugar and wild rice is minimal. Its when you are taking in 300g a day spread thru the day that it matters

hey guys, sorry I have not updated for a few days, I have had a busy/stressful weekend, my car broke down so I am looking for a new one and my girlfriend and I also picked up a new puppy this weekend, in addition to going out last night for her best friend's birthday
my lifts were down a little due to all this, as I haven't had a good full night's rest in a few days. here's how it went today:
Bench: 275x6; 295x6; 315x4, 315x2
Rack Deads: 405x5; 495x3, 495x3, 455x4
Military: 185x5, 185x4, 175x5, 175x5
Power Shrugs: 315x6 for 3 sets
so this workout wasn't terrible by my standards, i just didn't have much improvement like I have had in the last few weeks. however, I am also keeping the carbs/cals down. libido is definitely up from the MMV2, and haven't had any problems sleeping since the beginning. It's very hard for me to tell what the receptor is doing, as I have never run MMV2 before.

Good log so far broham! Im thinkin the general concensus of MMV2 is pretty badass!!
