  1. Day 1


    So not updated in about 2 months now, that痴 all going to change!

    My training the last month has just been all over the place, getting drunk a lot has messed things up. Too much crap in my life I could of handled better too.

    Not knowing what I wanted to do with my life was a big problem. Also woman trouble didn稚 help. Always falling out and arguing, mainly due to me being a **** head but things just didn稚 work, too much history as well. Even though I really hurt her emotionally I know in the long run she値l be better off without me. having no money and just getting drunk when I could, turning up to work hungover then just drinking again after work till my next shift.

    So for a while I pondered on what to do with my life and in the end I decided I wanted to join the police. I had been thinking about it for a long time, got round to applying and recently I got the letter in the mail. Two weeks after I applied the rejection letter came through, I was half expecting it due to the minor assault charge I got last year after I ended up in a fight one night, not one of my proudest moments. It never went to court though, just ended up with a 」50 fine. So I suspect that痴 why I got rejected. I was pretty disappointed for a couple days then thought **** it. I知 not going to let that hold me back.

    I got thinking again about what I wanted to do. I thought about the army then realised I wanted a bigger challenge in life. I really want to prove that I can push myself to the limit and then some more. I want to be a Royal Marines Commando.

    So roughly a year from now I値l apply. Between now and then I値l be logging daily on my workouts etc. I知 going to prove that I can do it and anyone who says that I値l fail, I値l show them what I知 made of.

    I知 going to hell and back and I hope you値l join me for the ride.

  2. Hey, Dave. Sounds like you had a reality check (those are always not fun, but when you look back, worth it) and now you are back on track again. Kudos for working through your sh*t. In and supporting you with it all.

  5. Day 1


    Spent all day Sunday recovering from my hangover in bed. The last week my appetite has been rubbish, no motivation at all to do anything. Going to the gym 4-5 hours later than planned. Sleep has been all over the place.

    Got back into the gym today proper. Got up an hour later than I had planned, couldn稚 get to sleep till quite late. Good breakfast, cleaned tons of crap out my bedroom. That痴 needed to be done for a while.

    My workout was awesome, back/bi痴. Started off with a row to warm up only 500metres lol. Pull ups 8/6/5. was on the end of the jungle gym doing these, I HATE doing them at the country club. I have a subscription at the country club and a pay as you go membership over at the leisure centre. Lately I致e not been going to the leisure centre as I知 so skint. So I知 making do.



    Deads 1x8 then 5x5 Not done deads in a good few weeks, strength felt awesome.
    3x6 bent over rows quite heavy, my form did suffer some going to drop the weight next time
    DB lat row 3x8
    Close grip lat pull down 3x6
    Shrugs 3x10

    I couldn稚 get onto the EZ curl bar to do 21痴 as 3 guys were using it. They all stunk of smoke too when they came in which was just disgusting. done some hammer curls instead 3x10 then a 500m sprint to finish off and stretch.

    Throughout my whole workout rests were 1 minute between sets. Deads were 1.15-1.30.

    Popped 4 RPM and 2 backdraft pre workout. My whole body had a funny warm feeling during my workout, was quite strange. Pump was fantastic.

    Sprint could of easily been longer but I needed to poop! Haha. Had a stretch then headed.

    Had my post workout meal, still hungry afterwards so had a pot of yoghurt.

    Appetite has sky rocketed today

    Over the last 2 months I致e lost about 10lbs, I wouldn稚 say a lot of it has been muscle, more fat round the midsection has gone I致e been eating still but a lot less.

    Looking forward to my run tomorrow!

    Motivation is just awesome today -

  10. Day 2


    Just finished my last meal of the day salmon fillet, macadamia nuts, pint of milk, walnut halves, whole avocado and 2 spoonfuls of coconut oil

    This mornings run didn稚 go to plan. Went to bed at 10pm last night, felt shattered, body was just like a log but my mind was racing. Couldn稚 sleep at all. Around 4.30am I fell asleep, up at 7am work for 9 Cardio was supposed to be done before work but I just felt terrible! So tired at work, wasn稚 sure if I was tired or hungry half the time. Little nap after work picked me up a bit.

    DOMs in my upper back, traps and forearms, lower back too!

    Went for a run in the evening 1.6km in 9min 30secs slowed to a walk half way. Went for a row after that, was thinking 3000metres but it ended at 500m. DOMs were bad! My cardiovascular health is just crap!!!

    Cardio the day after deads is always a struggle. At least you did it. That in itself is more than some can say.

  17. Day 4


    The plan was yesterday to workout in the morning then work a 5-10 at night. Ended up working a 12-3 then a 5-1. stupid people getting sick. Anyway I needed the cash so it was alright. Made it a cheat day and stuffed my face

    Still some DOMS but nothing that bad. By the end of my shift I was too tired to go for a run.

  18. Day 5 Part 1


    Woke up after 6 and a half hours sleep this morning. 2 hours earlier than my alarm was set for. I really hate it when that happens! Dozed till my alarm went off then go up. Oats for breakfast and a protein shake, managed to get my oats down in record time. Not a huge fan of oats, sometimes change it up for Weetabix, but then I have to have 6 weetabix!

    Dosed 3 RPM and 2 backdraft pre gym. 3 Alpha-x and 3 backdraft on waking along with 3 Neovar.

    Had a Chicken tikka & onion bhaji wrap left over from yesterdays cheat day so I destroyed that before the gym.

    Chest and tris.

    Warm up then 5x5 flat bench

    My strength on chest has been rocketing the last 3 weeks. Up 2.5kg this week. Felt I could of went up a good 5kg but didn稚 want to burn myself out. Close grip after flat bench. Couple sets high rep then started slapping the weight on, pyramiding the reps down as the weight was going up. 5 or 6 sets I think it was. Totally forgot about incline for some reason! 3x6 flies then 3x8 incline, had to drop the weight on incline quite a bit lol. 10 press ups to finish off, was pooped after that.

    Really felt I could do more. Energy and focus was through the roof!

    Pump in my tri痴 seemed to make my arms look double there usual size lol. Chest feeling really full and dense.

    Libido the last week my libido has been through the roof, higher than when I was running Drive/IGF-2/RPM.

    Supplements

    At the moment I致e got 10 days left on Appnut痴 Alpha-x
    Appnut痴 backdraft just over a bottle left (started running two bottles of backdraft the same time as Alpha-x.

    I may run another bottle of Alpha-x or maybe go onto IGF-2 too. Waiting to hear back from Rosie on that one

    Been using some RPM too with my workouts. I think it works great with backdraft, energy and focus is just stupidly insane.

    Good old Neovar Recomped too. Under half a bottle left from my 8 bottles I got at new year

    Fish oils I知 really bad for dosing this, always forget.

    No multivit at the moment, however I do have some berry blast Poseidon. I do have some orange triad on its way with some igf-2

    Ran out of gut health 2 nights ago.

    NoXidant pre bed. Few bottles of that left.

    No bulk bcaa left. Will get a few kg next month. At the moment I知 using orange xtend which I think tastes like crap. LG Sciences BCAA/EAA too. But I don稚 like the blue rasp flavour either. Much prefer flavouring bulk bcaa with NP痴 citrus dew! I can drink that stuff all day.

    I致e got just under a kg of WMS to use too, haven稚 touched that in ages. I might start using it after my cardio sessions.

    My mood/motvation has been up and down the last few days but today it is sky high real;ly pushed myself in the gym today, constantly upping the weight or pushing out a couple extra reps.

    I致e been putting off legs for almost a week now. I just don稚 want the DOMs from doing them. Its been a good month since I致e done them now. I know when I do them that値l be me ****ed from doing running for a good 5 days. I値l maybe do them Wednesday..

    Will update on my run later tonight before bed

  19. Day 5 Part 2!


    So in the evening i went for a run and some pull ups, 51 pull ups - mixed, wide grip close grip, reserve grip.

    Then i ran a mile in 8m25s which is a big improvement on the 9m30s the other day! it was more of a HIIT style run than i straight non stop run.

    Done a nice trade with a buddy of mine. I had some old 6-oxo which i never used during my Havoc cycle back in jan so i swapped that for a bottle of 2nd Gear he never used

    So my stack starting today is now Alpha-X, IGF-2, 2nd Gear,neovar, backdraft and i've got enough RPM left for 2-3 work outs. Not that i really need the RPM since the backdraft is working great but thought i'd use it up anyway!

    I'll update my shoulder workout after work or sunday morning

  20. Now that your run times for 1 mile are steadily going down, time to run for 2 and 3 miles, maybe more. I don't care what country you'll be serving, you WILL be running A LOT.

    hopefully get a good recomp out of it all, add some more mass. i think with the amount i'm eating and the amount of traning i'm doing i'll recomp well

    do you think i don't need to add it?
