First ever log and first time starting a thread on the forum. I have been training hard for about 2 years now but have been in the gym for about 9 years. I'm 25 y/o, 6'3 ,225 lbs. I have recently hit a plateau in size and I can't seem to shed the extra 7-10 lbs so I thought I give this promising stack a shot! In conjunction to the stack I am also taking: creatine,BCAA's, , multi V, vitamin E. This will be my first ever serious stack. My diet is pretty dialed in and I train extremely hard 5 days a week, but i do enjoy a few beers every couple weeks on a Saturday. So this will be like a working mans kinda log lol.
Here we go!

I did legs today and had an unreal workout! Until my last set of burning out on a squat machine I felt a pain that I can only describe as getting a knife in my spine. Form was spot on ad the weight was going up smooth.. I hope it clears up by tomorrow..

Awesome! I'm laid up right now. I really hurt my back today.. I bent down to pick up something in a public bathroom tonight and I couldn't straighten back out so I had to lay on the floor and call a buddy. I didn't think I was going to get back up!

Damn. Be careful, back injuries are nothing to mess with. Have you had back problems in the past?Originally Posted by Becks18

Not really. I've had this pain before but not as bad. Today it isn't nearly as bad as it was yesterday. I'm going to take the day off and go back at it hard tomorrow if all is well.
One thing I have noticed with this stack is that I am always hungry and my libido is through the roof!

Update: I am still having back pain so I haven't been able to hit the gym. I am going to stop taking the stack as of today and start back up probably Wednesday. I feel like I'm wasting it if I'm not in the gym lol

The DAA takes 14 days or so to really kick in so you could probably keep using that while you heal up.Originally Posted by Becks18

Woops. I kept trying to respond on my phone and it wouldn't go through... I guess all of them finally did lol.
My back has been getting progressively better. I'm healing faster than I thought I would. 2 more days and I will be back to normal. No dead lifts for a little bit though

You need to get one. And you should be fine to do chest. Assuming you aren't throwing 315 around and arching your back like crazy.

Why would one "need" a belt. That just takes the core stabilization away (by that I mean doesn't strengthen the core as much) which would ultimately lead to more back problems due to the weakened core muscles. Yes?Originally Posted by Jbeezee

Not when already injured. It would be like using a knee brace if you have recently injured your knee and aren't 100%Originally Posted by Jim2542

I've never thought about using one. It makes sense to use one when injured but I think Id rather rest my back and let it heal up than support it and possibly tweak it because I'm feeling good.
06-12-2012, 02:36 PM
Belt can help. I almost always wear one bc of back problems. What's really important though is your core. I like to at least do a light core workout before all major muscle groups, especially back. Will help keep your spine stabilized.Originally Posted by Becks18

Emphasis needs to be on light though because too much will fatigue your core and lead to spinal instability.Originally Posted by Clemenza

Belts are for support. Wearing a belt helps stabilize your CORE. Wearing a belt doesn't take away from your core strength. I use a belt every back day and after rowing 185 and 225 for a few sets along with t bar rows the extra support helps. And erectors are still the next day so obviously they are working.Originally Posted by Jim2542

Yes it stabilizes your spine but using a belt to stabilize the spine takes away from the cores activation because the primary function of our core is to stabilize the spine. Therefore when one were to stop using the belt they would have a weakened core from relying upon the belt which could lead to more injury. Much like using a lifting strap takes away from the development of your grip strength which leads one to rely upon those tools.Originally Posted by Jbeezee

I USE straps and my grip is much stronger than what it was before I didn't use them.Originally Posted by Jim2542
