  1. delsolrob has returned...time to get back into shape


    I've been gone too long! it's not that I've been out of the gym for months, but I haven't been hitting it as hard as I need to be.

    my strength is really down, but I'm hoping to get some strength and size back soon.

    I'm not really focusing too much on supplements right now, but I'm sticking with the basics:

    fish oil
    creatine mono
    cit malate
    beta alanine
    WPI
    BCAA

    workout schedule:
    Sunday: back + bi's + light legs + abs
    monday: cardio
    Tuesday: shoulders with light chest
    Wednesday: Legs + core
    Thursday: I play in a league
    Friday: chest + tri's + core
    Sat: cardio

    notes for the day: I've been working on reducing my carb intake and my gym time has suffered by an incredible amount. I chowed down on about 100g of complex carbs a couple hours before I hit the gym today and this was the best workout I've had in a while.

  18. OK guys, I'm adding a little bit to the arsenal of goodies!

    First, I've really been eyeing Anadraulic State GT and think I'm gonna give it a go. I just placed an order and I'm looking forward to trying the strawberry lemonade flavor! after reading up a little, I think I'll try adding anadraulic pump with it next month...I like the idea of the geranium extract without adding more Caffeine! this will also give me a baseline so I can judge their synergy.

    Second, some super cissus RX. there's been some good sales on it and I want to keep my shoulder and knee happy

    pushup burnout with smith machine x 2:
    I do as many pushups on the floor as I can and then I move bar on the smith machine to the lowest level and continue to failure, then I move the bar up to each additional level to failure.

  22. Isn't muscle memory a beautiful thing? It doesn't take too long until the strength comes rushing back to its former levels.
    That's some truly impressive weights on the DB Presses brotha. It's all uphill from here too. Just wait until you toss that Anadraulic State/Anabolic Pump into this mix!!! PR's will be set......oh yes.....they will be set!!!

    LOL, if I forced myself to hit 15 reps on each lift, my numbers would look very different!

    Ugh dont remind me! I gotta do that painful crap again tomorrow! lol

  29. today is a mixed up day, and I'm a little pissed about it!

    my patela tendonitis started acting up yesterday and got worse through today...so, I decided to switch todays workout to chest day and move legs to friday.

    today was also a great reminder about how important hydration and nutrition is on training days I ended up getting stuck working in the lab all day with some high priority issues...didn't get to eat very much and neglected my water intake. My workout totally sucked today!

    oh well, here are the numbers:

    incline DB press (30 degrees):
    90x10
    100x4 (wtf?)
    100x5
    115x4 (with lift off)

    incline isolateral HS:
    90x7
    90x8
    135x3

    3 sets of cable flies - neglected to write down weights

    BW dips:
    3 sets of 15

    standing isolateral shoulder press:
    45x10
    55x8
    55x6
    45x8

    pushups and some core training.

  30. You still pushed some serious weight in your "bad" workout. I understand what you mean though cause yesterday I lost 4 reps on my barbell incline at 185lbs. However, I gained reps on several other exercises including reverse grip bench.

  31. thanks silver! yeah, I know my numbers weren't horrible. but it's frustrating to watch them go down after last weeks workout...especially when you know where you went wrong. I hate being too busy to take care of myself the way I'd like to!!

  32. That is what separates us from the weak. Where they give up, we push further

    that's very inspirational Rob!

  34. finally getting some pictures up...these are from last wednesday (the 7th). I'm just getting them up because I don't have my own PC and my company forced me to remove my personal phote editing software (even though I paid for a legit copy of photoshop elements).

  35. Damn bro! Honestly I think you've really held onto your size. Your bf looks like it BARELY went up. You are not far from surpassing your current stats.

  36. thanks Rob! yeah, I can tell that I've dropped about 10lbs of muscle...but the real kicker to me is the BF%! I really want to get that down...but I'm struggling with the idea of going on a full cut because I don't want to lose a bit more muscle/strength either. 2 more months of kicking ass and then I'll see how the BF looks and re-evaluate my goals.
  37. Thumbs up

    I don't blame you. I hate losing muscle size or strength.
    Don't cut. Just do an aggressive recomp. Slowly reduce carbs while upping the protein. Eat lean to look lean......I always say!!!
