Took a little break mid run, had to my body was aching. Unfortunately during that break my diet was complete ****. I really need to focus on this. I graduate in 3 weeks and will be able to hone that diet in a lot more. But, today after working out today wen't grocery shopping and got some stuff for oatmeal, tuna salad, salmon bagels, and chicken salads. So this week I will be on point. Will just have to go grocery shopping again sunday.

Hey everyone, finally starting my journal here on PHF. My life has been EXTREMELY hectic. Brief recap of past two weeks:
1) Graduated college
2) Lost the job I thought I was going to get, due to criminal background
3) Decided not to move to Columbus, so will be mooching off friends until I find a job and then I will move to where my job is.
That being said I will be job hunting and working out full time now! Kind of been lifting haphazardly lately but like I said been too busy.
My cycle so far has been Deca-Drol Max and Cyanostane. By IML... I LOVE these products. Despite my slack workouts lately I have been looking vascular and always feeling good.
About a week ago I started up my Tren / Test prop cycle (still have two weeks left on Deca-Drol and Cyano also! Special thanks to AW, EZK and BML.
I will be running these at:
Test: 1ml / day (700mg / week)
Tren: 1ml / day (700mg / week) --- If the sides become too intense I will dial it back.
I wish I didn't start these babies up until Monday (after moving and all that good stuff is done) but I got so damn excited I couldn't help myself!
Went to the park today did some pullups and dips. I felt LIGHT. I promise you guys now that I am a big boy-all graduated and what not--I will be perfecting my diet a lot more! I think big changes will happen after this cycle.
06-07-2012, 08:09 PM
Just dawned on me. Now that I am graduated I no longer have a gym membership.
Going to have to join the "community" gym. Ping (the University gym) is too expensive and won't do a monthly term, I plan to only be in town here for another 3-4 weeks--by then I best have a job
06-10-2012, 02:54 PM
So i join the local community center. 60 bucks for 20 visits. The equipment sucks but as I am working out some guy tells me about a warehouse-gym thats 25 bucks a month, and has chains, power bands, all the good stuff. Going to try to get a refund tomorrow and hit that place up. Definitly going to change my training substantially. Should remain in town about a month then I will be moving to wherever the job takes me.
Took it easy today. Gotta ease into this working out thing again tomorrow I will go to the park and do a pullup routine.
135lbs - 20
225lbs - 15
315lbs - 10, 9, 6 ... dead yeah I have fallen off a little bit, but it will come back very fast.
flyes 35lbs - 2 sets to failure
pushups 3 sets
dinner we are cooking out some salmon, hot dogs, and steak! lol
06-10-2012, 08:54 PM
Worked out again today.
First did a hour of moving stuff furniture [dressers, couches. etc] and a bunch of lighter stuff up into my buddies apt--also where I will be momentarily staying for parts of the summer.
Then went to the park again and did some pullups and dips. Attached two videos.
I have lots of work to do still. But, I am looking okay! half into summer I will be looking fairly impressive...diet diet diet. preach to me people!
06-12-2012, 04:11 PM
Worked out today, switched things up a little felt good and my veins were intense after those pushups
300 pushups -- done in sets of 30 reps, then 20 reps, then 30 reps, then 20... you get the point
45lbs DB 2 sets of 6 reps
Machine 100lbs: 2 sets of 15 reps
Machine Reverse curl 70lbs: 2 sets of 15 reps

Took yesterday off. Today did another short routine. Was tired, I did 7 hours of driving today (house hunting) and when I came back I ate two "lean pockets" and some milk and hit the gym.
Cleans: 135lbs 3 sets of 6 reps (probably not the right name, I do a clean but no squat involved. Bend down pick weight up, bring it to top of chest as if going to shoulder press).
Standing Shoulder press: 135lbs. Set 1: 36 reps. Set 2: 28 reps? --- recorded
Bend over Row: 135lbs - 3 sets of 10 reps
Pull ups wide: 8 - 7 - 5
Will post videos of shoulder press once its done uploading

How much u dead lift?Originally Posted by kBrown
06-16-2012, 08:13 PM
Kind of funny because my buddy, who trains with me, climbed his deadlifts up to 505lbs--we did the same things, same routine. Just my deads dont progress. Something I am going to have to take a real hard look at once I get back in a real gym (once I finish moving).
Think I am going to start at like 315lbs and do 1/4th lift, then 2/4th lift, then 3/4th lift, then full deadlift. (4 weeks). Using the safety bar to keep my range of motion in check (so I can do the 1/4th or 2/4th, etc).
06-16-2012, 08:20 PM
I can pull 315 5 times max... My max is close to 400, but it feels like my veins & traps will rip out of my neck!Originally Posted by kBrown

Moved to cinci.
Have yet to find a gym that I like.
Checked out urban active but it just wasnt my scene. Plus I hated the benches there lol
06-23-2012, 07:04 PM
Monster workout today.
Settled on a gym. LA Fitness. I like all the equipment. Though everything has monkey grips (the bars are real thick and big).
So now I am back on my GRIZZZLEEE
06-29-2012, 08:06 PM
Alright everyone. I am going to be running a log here is the scoop.
I went saw a dietitian today and personal trainer. We are going to work me into ~230lbs. Then I will cut for competitions from there.
For the first 4 weeks of this quest I will be running only Osta RX and then after that I will kick it up a notch and throw in some big boy compounds.
My diet we are going to have look like this:
10 egg whites
4 slices whole weat
1cup oatmeal with banana
1 cup OJ
8oz chicken breast
1 cup rice
1 cup rice
4) protein shake
5) 6oz chicken
1/2cup brown rice.
Probably will not follow it to the letter but am damn gonna try. Going to go spend about 300 in groceries tomorrow. Gonna go to Sams and just buy bulk
Monday - legs
Tuesday - Chest
Wed - back
Thursday - Shoulders
Friday - Legs
Sat - Arms.
I was told, and I knew this already, that my legs are pathetic and I should be able to easily gain 15lbs in that area alone.
I will be working with a personal trainer on legs days twice a month (and will do legs without the trainer on the other days).
The official start is Monday. I will have my first leg training session at 3pm.
Tomorrow I go grocery shopping.
06-29-2012, 11:16 PM
230 is a beastly weight...
06-30-2012, 04:59 AM
Yeah man it is going to be an adventure.
I start monday.
My biggest worry is that I will not have the discipline to stick to the diet. Am hoping that the girl in my life can help me stick to it. Going to be an adventure.
Could always use tips from anyone about eating / dietary discipline. The above mentioned foods are what I am going to mainly be sticking to it.
