    We'll definitely keep an eye on you Shaddow

    Keep climbing !!

    By the way, I agree with Metroba about separating the chest/shoulder workout, however, there is nothing wrong with continuing with your current program and after 4 weeks or so swapping over...so the body doesn't get used to any particular routine

  7. I did a bit of thinking, and I decided that the routine I was planning to switch to next week probably wouldn't work out too well since I can't really do squats or deadlifts while I'm rehabbing my hammy. So I think I'm gonna probably do a different routine next week; probably either 3 or 4 days in the gym, still haven't made up my mind. I decided to switch it up and do back instead of shoulders for my workout yesterday, and I'll go ahead and hit up shoulders on Friday.

    Got home from work late... AGAIN... Popped an AP and some RPM, and waited about 30 minutes before eating some oatmeal. For some reason my lower back started tightening up on me again right as I sat down to eat. On back day. Great. I started losing my desire to workout... I decided to stretch it out a bit and try to see if I couldn't loosen it up, but I wasn't getting anywhere. There's only one thing I could do at this point. Hard, fast, loud music NOW.

    This workout was brought to you by Pendulum.

    YouTube - Pendulum - Showdown

    Ok, got to the gym and did a little more stretching cuz my back was still stiff as a board. This proved to be an exercise in futility. **** it. Time to lift anyways.

    Bodyweight pull-ups
    11
    9
    7

    Strength is still down bit, but I'm coming along. I should be able to do at least a dozen.

    One arm dumbbell rows
    80 x 12
    90 x 8 (Wow, these were rough on my hammy!)
    100 x 5

    Strength's still down a bit on these, but it was more my hamstring holding me back. I could really feel the tension on these, and it might've been a little risky going so heavy, but I made it out alive.

    Cable rows
    160 x 12
    160 x 12
    160 x 12

    These were also very tough on my hamstring, as well as on my lower back. Had to use strict form, and I got a little nervous to go up in weight on these, so I stayed at 160 for all 3 sets. Decided to move onto T-bar rows to try to get a little heavier, but my back was already pretty spent at this point.

    T-bar rows
    90 x 12
    115 x 9
    135 x 5

    Weaksauce! But I really was stiff and spent. Ok, maybe one last exercise...

    Cable straight arm pulldowns
    120 x 20
    140 x 15
    150 x 12

    Time to do arms! Since I began with my focus on bis last time, this time I decided to start out with triceps.

    Dumbbell triceps extensions
    60 x 20 - I started getting a NASTY headache after my first set and actually had to rest for a few minutes. It wasn't going away, but I was determined not to let it stop me, so I continued with my head throbbing.
    80 x 12
    90 x 10
    100 x 6

    Rope triceps extensions supersetted with cable curls
    120 x 15 / 120 x 15
    140 x 12 / 140 x 12
    150 (stack) x 12 / 150 x 12

    My headache was still bugging me but I fought through it and barely finished that last set. Ended up slamming the weights pretty hard upon finishing. Thank God nobody was around to hear it.

    Time to get that leg stronger!!

    Single leg presses
    30 x 30
    40 x 30
    50 x 25
    60 x 20
    60 x 15

    Seated leg curl
    25 x 20
    30 x 15
    25 x 20
    25 x 20

    Got done with these and decided to hit up the stair-climber-machine-thingy. Only did a few minutes cuz my head was still hurting and I was spent.

    All in all, I had a pretty good workout despite my back, leg, and head all giving me problems. I'm gonna take it easy tonight and try to get to bed a bit earlier cuz I ended up staying up until 2-something last night and woke up at 7, and I'm exhausted. My allergies have been killing me all day too, so it's been a pretty miserable day for me. I can't wait to leave work. 2.5 more hours. I wonder if anyone will notice if I take a nap at my desk... Tomorrow's shoulder day. I can't wait to tear it up!

    I'm not a player, I just crush a lot.

    Cuz I was hungry? LOL. Nah, I always do that. Here's my routine:
    RPM ---> Wait 20 minutes ---> AP ---> Wait 20-30 minutes ---> Oatmeal & protein ---> BCAA's ---> Drive to the gym ---> Stretch out ---> Workout (while sipping BCAA's) ---> AP ---> Wait 20 minutes ---> Oatmeal & protein ---> BIG MEAL.

    I figure by the 40-50 minute mark, the RPM should be in my system, so the food shouldn't affect it too much. I have to eat before the gym though, cuz otherwise I get tired/hungry and my workout lags. It really wasn't the food or the RPM that made me lose motivation, it was my damn stiff back. With a stiff back and a tight hamstring, it's hard to even walk around. I'm not *****ing though. Just gotta push harder.

    Ok, lemme try to explain again... I *always* do that. Regardless of the stimulant I take pre-workout, I always eat oatmeal about 40-50 minutes after dosing, and immediately before heading to the gym. Why? Because I cannot workout without food in my stomach. Hunger pangs will destroy my workout, so I have to eat. I eat about 30 minutes before I leave work, and unfortunately my commute is over an hour long, so by the time I get home, unwind, and get ready for the gym, it's anywhere from 2-3+ hours from my last meal, and that means food time.

    So the lack of motivation was NOT related to the RPM or food. It was the combination of my back stiffening up (which happens occasionally as a result a broken back I suffered ~8 years ago), and my hamstring being screwed up. Usually I will stretch my hamstrings out to help alleviate my back stiffness, but I can only stretch my left (injured) one so far right now without it hurting. I'm sure that my hamstring stiffness is the direct cause of my back stiffness, but there's just not much I can do about it until my hammy gets better.

    C'est la vie.

  17. 1. My leg feels GREAT right now. I know I'm nowhere near 100%, but I'm gonna push it a little harder tonight (while still being cautious) and try to do a little more weight and volume, as well as some additional exercises.

    2. For my log beginning on Sunday, I spoke with Dave today, and I have a special "secret" surprise. I will be dropping Divanex and adding another compound instead. **** is about to get crazy up in here.

    3. Shoulders, arms, and legs today, and I am gonna ****ing KILL IT!!!!

  18. That fact you that you dont edit your curse words so that we can see them, makes all the more hardcore

    You've got me curious!

  20. Everyone's been posting meals lately, so I figured 'what the heck.'

    Meal # 3 (1:30pm)
    Tuna with salsa and mustard on 15-grain, salad, oatmeal with 1 scoop ON, cup of fruit, H2O


    Meal # 6 - Post workout (10:30pm)
    Grilled chicken breast, plum tomatoes, spinach, cucumber, slice of avocado, can of kidney beans, oatmeal with 1 scoop ON, cup of fruit

    Actually, this pic is missing a banana that I devoured in about 10 seconds.

  23. Love seeing the meals posted buddy!

    Looks delicious!

  24. Workout tonight!

    Shoulders & hammy rehab - arms were DESTROYED after shoulders, and I did bis/tris twice this week, so I said, **** it. No bis/tris today.

    Today's workout was brought to you in part by Control-Z.

    YouTube - Ctrl Z - Space Dementia

    Pendulum, Control-Z, Screwface... These guys are the heavy metal of drum & breaks, and my energy level is through the ****ing roof when I listen to this ****. Hit play and listen along while you read this so you can feel what I'm talking about.

    I warmed up by doing this weird thing I do on the pull-up bar... I use the inner grip so that my arms are closer together and palms are facing each other, and pull myself up so that my shoulders are about as high up as my hands. Then I raise my legs up and form a V with my body. Then I bend my knees, letting my feet come down towards my ass, and lift my ass up and forward, so that basically my back is parallel to the floor. Then I hang for about 30 seconds, feeling the stretch throughout my entire upper body, back, arms, abs, obliques... Everywhere. Then I drop my ass back down, straighten my legs, hold for 15 seconds, and let them down slowly. Then I hang as if I'm at the start of a pull-up, and stretch out my lats. Don't know how the hell I came up with this, but it really gives your entire upper body a great stretch and burn. Good ****. People probably think I look ridiculous, but I don't give a flying ****.

    Shoulders! Round one! Fight!

    Barbell overhead presses
    95 x 12
    115 x 10
    135 x FAIL. ****! I forgot I'm still a little weak right now and underestimated how heavy this would be. I ****ed up! Lemme try that again.
    135 x 5 DROPSET TO:
    115 x 8 DROPSET TO:
    95 x 10
    Wooo! Those were rough!

    Dumbbell shoulder presses
    40 x 12
    50 x 10
    60 x 8
    65 x 6

    Dumbbell front raises
    25 x 12
    30 x 10
    35 x 8 DROPSET TO:
    Barbell front raises!
    50 x 12 DROP TO:
    40 x 9

    Dumbbell lateral raises
    20 x 12
    25 x 10
    30 x 8

    Seated rear lateral raises
    160 x 12
    175 x 10
    190 x 7

    Seated hammer shrugs

    250 x 8 DROPSET TO:
    230 x 10 DROPSET TO:
    180 x 10 DROPSET TO:
    90 x 15

    ****ing spent by this point. Forget bis & tris! That **** would be pointless! Time to hit up my hammy!

    Single leg seated leg press
    40 x 25
    50 x 20
    60 x 18
    70 x 15
    80 x 12

    Seated leg curls
    30 x 30
    40 x FAIL. I still have pain when I try to go heavy. Damn. Lemme drop it back to 30.
    30 x 25
    35 x 15
    30 x 20
    30 x 18

    Done. Time to go home and eat (see meal above).

    P.S. I am cussing a lot lately because I am ****ing excited as hell! Starting my stack SUNDAY!!!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
