  1. Back On The Grind


    Hey all,

    Fell off the wagon on here for a pretty long while. Things got hectic in life, some big changes, some good and some bad came up. Still kept up with training and all that jazz. I started a new "log" to get a fresh start and maybe attract some new followers. So far my training has gone back to: Chest/Back, Legs, Shoulders/Arms, Repeat with a rest day thrown in when I need it. Also, as of this past Monday, I have been having to PT one of the people I supervise so they can score better on their PT test. So, that means I'm doing a two-a-days essentially. I train before work in the mornings and then after work I have the supervised PT thing where it's calisthenics and cardio focused. Anyway, here's a few recent photos, sitting at around 200-202 with an estimated 13-ish% BF. Name:  IMG_2935.jpg

  6. Alright no gym today, instead was out and did a 7-ish hour hike totaling 6 miles or so. Some was damn near straight vert surfaces, most of it was navigating through craggy river beds going up the mountain with a fair amount steep inclines. Extremely taxing on the legs. Especially since I hit them Friday night. If anyone is interested I can throw some pics up from the hike, but here is the lower body shot, no pump or anything whatsoever, just straight into my house before my shower. Name:  IMG_3195.jpg

    Welcome! And thanks!

  11. This morning had a pretty decent chest/back session. My legs and lower back were still wrecked from the hike, so deads were out of the picture just to minimize risk of injury. Should be good to squat tomorrow morning, I'm feeling better as the day progresses.

    Recently, my training has been pretty compact. Most everything is superset, aside from big movements like squats and sometimes deads. And I'll do 3-4 super sets of 3-5 sets and maybe a few "isolation" moves for 2-4 sets at the most. I seem to be progressing fairly well. Not tracking anything diet wise right now either, I know what foods (mainly carbs) make me hold on to more weight and I've been keeping protein and fats higher for the most part. Right now I'm just trying to add some mass but not in a full bulk. Somewhere in between maintenance and bulk would be a good description.

  12. Look who is back! Subbed!
    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

    All healed up! BPC and PEG-MGF on hand if needed.
    Doing all exercises again. Took me 8 month to fully heal it out -but could have done it in 4, if I would have used the BPC/PEG-MGF combo right from the beginning.

    Great to hear! At least you have the knowledge in case there's another unforeseen injury. Sorry it took 8 months to heal completely, but in the meantime it let you focus on different training methods and other body parts (legs!) haha

  16. Another compacted session this morning. Wasn't really feeling it when I got up this morning at all. The start was slow, but I feel I had a productive session. I've made a note to increase calories because of the extra expenditures for the whole PT thing that I have to run, and today was the real first day of that. Right now (quarter till 9 in the evening), I fell pretty good. Obviously tired from the day, but I don't feel overly drained or sore or anything. Also incorporated a generic multi+omega 3's and fish oils that I'm dosing twice daily, so I think that helps as well. I'm sure I was nutrient deficient somewhere. Tomorrow morning is chest/back, so we'll see where this diet revamp is putting me as far as training goes. Also started eating ~ 1 cup of oats pre workout, about 30-40 mins beforehand. So far, so good.

    Back is starting to get a lil' diced, and showing some decent development.

  18. Alright, so it's legs again. Wanting some opinions, or methods maybe, that have worked for you. Right now I'm starting off with 2-ish sets of lying hammie curls @ 25-35 reps then moving into squats. Squats are anywhere from 4-9 sets depending on how I'm feeling and how the weight is moving. After that I'm hit leg press, GHR, split squats, or a smith squat variation, and then I'm gassed after those 2 exercises. I push myself to do another exercise or two, usually superset together from 2-4 sets usually. Is that not enough work, or am I fatiguing my legs properly because they're so done by the time I'm hitting the 2nd exercise.

  19. Yesterday's leg session went well, started with leg curls to get the hams fired up then moved into box squats. Worked up to 2 sets of 405, one for 2 reps, and one for 1 rep. Dropped down to 315 and did 3 sets of regular squats immediately after the box work. Threw in some Bulgarian split squats and GHR's superset, then KB swings, then single leg RDL's on the smith machine. My legs are still feeling it today. In a good way though. We'll see what shoulders/arms has in store for me in a bit.

  20. Alright fellas sorry for the delay, been busy with work. Anyway, I ended up taking Saturday and Sunday off. I think it paid off because I had a great shoulders/arms session Monday morning. Pump was great and Strength went up a little bit. I'm consistently able to get 100's up for 4-6 with no assist or spot so that's looking good for me. Today's chest/back session was alright, I snoozed my alarm and overslept so I didn't have much time. I had a good pump going but I don't think I truly fatigued anything aside from shoulders. Bench numbers are getting better too though. Consistently hitting 225 for 12-15 reps no spot on decline and flat, and incline I can probably get around 205 for 10. So not too bad in my opinion.

    Snap from post shoudlers/arms on Thursday. Quick lunch workout, the added in calisthenics and cardio is paying off, and I'm able to be less stringent with my diet. Carbs are being used up instead of stored and whatnot. Today we had Sq PT so I had to get my chest/back lift in before hand. It was only 2 exercises of each group, but went to failure. Flat DB bench, neutral grip pulldowns, decline bench, and barbell rows. Sq PT was a bunch of calisthenics but I'm feeling good. Feeling more athletic, and balanced.

  22. Took the weekend off, took a trip to Merano right on the border of Austria and Italy and just drank by the pool with a couple buddies and caught some rays. The time off was nice, hit legs Monday morning and squatted 405 raw. Shoulder was feeling a bit weird yesterday so I took the day off aside from doing the cardio/calisthenics with my troop. Today was shoulders and arms, got the 100's for 8 solid reps and had a solid pump going. Work got in the way of having a full session again, but something is better than nothing. Tomorrow morning I've got an early chest/back session. Will be tough, I've gotta be there about 2 hours before I normally do because I'm taking a few people to the airport at 0530. Upping intake a slight bit to help offset the extra work, right now it's just adding an extra egg per meal (total up to 8 eggs per day) and adding in a whole avocado. Still not counting cals/macros, eating slightly more than what feels comfortable but definitely not to the point where I'm force feeding.

    Workout was eh today. Only had one meal beforehand. Wasn't able to train due to airport shenanigans in the morning. Working all day and only had time for one meal. Felt flat and dehydrated but strength felt fine. Haven't pulled in a while but still managed 425 for a single. Weight is down to 199.2, I'm not even trying to cut so I messed with cals today and I was barely eating 2,000. So I counted out everything for a basic template to get me around 3,000.

  24. I see you Sparks2012.. Looking Good Brother!
