testiesac's 5x5 log to greatness
ive been looking around this forum quite awhile and never actually logged anything. i thought since i got the time (since ive been layed off for 3 months) i have the time now to log my workout progress. and get the critisizim i need to accomplish my goals. im just starting the 5x5 routine. also just got finished with an epi cycle and pct so hopefully this helps with maintaining gains and put more on. i was also unsure what i should start my lifts at. last week i did a practice run and did squat, bench, and rows, got my max and my fifth set on monday was approx 85% of max. maybe a little high to start but we will see.
as of today im on day 3 first wk of my routine. im 5'7" 201lbs, approx 14-16% bf, not really sure. ill post pics later.

i guess its just me here...a little lonely
today my elbow was hurting a little felt likle a tendonitist thing, i iced it a few times. also been taking the anabolic pump for a few days and it seems like i can eat anything and still stay pretty lean. also been taking rpm an hour or so before w/o and not really sure if i feel it that much. i mean i feel good at the gym but dont know if rpm really contributes that much. not sure yet.
