    Prine Bridge:
    3x 60 seconds - actually just 30 deep breaths, pretty sure its at least 60 seconds though

    I am digging this routine, its working well, and I am not getting nearly as much DOMS as expected. Might be due to actually being able to eat real food now though too. Weight this morning was 180.2 IIRC.

    What should I run after XMAS...Super DMZ...Havoc...or some Dermacrine??
    Depends on your specific goals bro. If you're looking to add some mass and keep with this 5X5 strength program, I'd recommend doing the Super DMZ. It will give you the most bang in the mass/strength department.

    Havoc would be better utilized during a cut or recomp.

    The Dermacrine will come in handy WITH the Super DMZ run in case you run into lethargy issues. If you don't have lethargy issues, it will come in handy during your PCT. And that PCT should definitely include a real SERM.

    Well I am always recomping :P Might be better to save the Havoc for after winter though huh?

    I am trying to figure out the best routine for mass...I know 5x5 isn't it, was thinking for running with GVT again when I start the cycle.

    Only have 1 bottle of DMZ though, but that should be plenty. Kleen did pretty damn good with 1 bottle. I didn't see why his log got closed, should I not log it?

    Yeah I will be buying a bunch of nolvadex for either run, 20/20/20/20 is how I'll run it, with swole stack during PCT also.

    Anyway...today was crap

    Squat 275x5x5 - little rough, might want to stick here. Was planning on hitting 315 and sticking, might still do that though.

    OH Press 115x5x5 - felt good

    Then the gym closed...damn thing has the most random hours...so I couldn't do pullups and chinups...oh well though the 2 main ones got done. Drove over to the 24 hours fitness place to finish and they closed for guests at 6, like 2 minutes after I got there lol. Have a wedding in the morning though, gotta go buy a nice suit, should be fun!

  5. At the time Kleen's log got closed Iron Labz wasnt a sponsor here and now they r so it wouldnt get closed.

  6. Wedding was super fun, was hanging out with family I haven't seen and then was chilling with this 19 year old SUPER hottie from New York (Bride's side) Damn was she hot...but I will never be in NYC so I didn't pursue it too much. Did I mention she was hot though?

    Update: No Gym today, gym is closed. Extra day will do me some good anyway I suppose.

    Girls:

    So I asked this chick at the coffee shop out one day, and she said yeah. Then she said she had a boyfriend when I went to pick her up so I left, haven't talked to her since. Went to the bar that same night and met some chick named Hope, she fairly cute, could stand to hit the gym a little more, maybe 10 pounds overwieght, but she is cute regardless.

    Fast forward several days, saw her and her roommate in another bar, so I sat with them and we chilled for a little. She gave me her number before she left and I gave her a call a bit later to see if she was busy, she was driving her roommates home so I said I'd call her later.

    About a week later I had tried to contact her a few times with no answer, told her my facebook page and said hey, feel free to stalk me, might jog your memory a bit. She calls 5 minutes later and wants to hang out that night. So I go out, she finds me at the bar and I take her home. 5 hours of the most making out in my life ensues while I try my damndest to seal the deal. She ends up saying she's only met me once before, fair enough. Small town and thats a little classy so +1 her. We hang out the next night, get some hand action both ways, although I had to ninja my way in.

    She's back with her family for winter break now, going to try and meet some chicks in the gym while shes gone and see if anything happens when she gets back.

    I feel like I need to spice this up a bit so people show up lol

  7. +1 for the story...i would rep you again if i could...but here is a token of my appreciation

  8. Now those are some nice +2's!!!

  9. buahaha

    Thanks for showin up with some twins heheh. I'll find some later tonight as well, going to the gym here in a few moments, gotta make up for lost time the other day

  10. Day 9:

    Squat:
    285x5x5 - These felt damn good, got some chuck taylors and they sire work a ton better than stupid tennis shoes

    Bench Press:
    205x5x5 - First 3 sets were hard as hell then some hotties were benching 50lbs right next to me so I got motivated and knocked out last 2 sets with ease, nice slow reps

    Inverted Row to Failure:
    x20, x15, x9.5 - Improving still, its crazy doing so many reps of these...last one I only made it halfway so I held it there for about 20 seconds and eased back down.

    Pushups to Failure:
    x60, x25, x25 - I am only shooting to increase the first set of these, I want to keep sets 2 and 3 at 25, its hard pushing them out, the first set always amazes me though as I am beat from bench and rows by this time...I am damn near the 100% mark for the army PT test...and at the end of my workout to boot!

    Pullups:
    x12 normal, x4 5 second positive and 10 second negative, x5 regular - added these today because I didn't do them the other day, slightly modified them so I could get the same amount of work done with less reps, did super concentration for the second set.

    Reverse Crunch:
    3x20 - Abs are never hard...might increase these to 25 per set as I am not feeling the burn any more until the last set.

    Stetching and some walking to cool off.

    Overall good day.

    I woke up about 1PM, took my breakfast shake at 1:50, about 1200 cals, pre workout at 4:00, was in the gym by 5:00, done with the gym by 6:30, took my post w/o shake at about 6:40, and will be eating a solid meal, ham sandwich with spinach pepperjack and mustard on wheat with a bowl of soup at around 8:00. I'll then probably have a bowl of chili with flour tortilla chips and about 4oz cheddar cheese are 10 or 11, then around 1AM or so have a shake with 1/2 container of cottage cheese, 2 cups milk, 1cup greek yogurt, and a scoop or two of some berry sherbert before hitting the sack. Just started counting every calorie today so I will write up a diet report for you guys while Im drinking my bedtime shake. Hope everyone is doing good!

  14. The other day:

    Squat:
    295x5x5

    Overhead Press:
    125x5 - had to drop to 115x5x3, 115x3.5

    Deadlift:
    315x3 - without VersaGripps because I lost them New ones on the way

    Pullups to Failure:
    x13, x15, x12

    Chinups to failure:
    x9.5, x10, x9

    Prine Bridge:
    3x 30 deep breaths

  15. And yesterday


    Squat:
    305x5x5 - Didn't go low enough on my last set...probably around 115 degrees or so. I am feeling like that's OK though as I increase my weight...my legs are long so squatting down to 90 with a lot of weight on is super hard on my back

    Bench Press:
    215x5x5 - These were all hard o.0 Really feeling not having my versa gripps...Oh well 225 next time

    Inverted Row to Failure:
    x23, x12, x10.5 - Still improving

    Pushups to Failure:
    x20, x11, x10 - Uh not sure at all what happened here...my best guess is my pump was just way to big today...I took Hemavol because its one of my favorite Pre-wo...the Vitamin B just makes me focus so damn hard...I did the second and third sets super slow though...and after that did a whole bunch of other accessory work, about 40 minutes worth of upper body stuff.

    Reverse Crunch:
    3x20 -

  16. Also, took advantage of a nice big sale Got some Clen, Clomid, Nolva, IGF-1 and some other stuff. Not ready to be using the IGF, still studying up on it, but was a damn good deal

  17. Squat:
    315x5x5 - going to stay here...

    Overhead Press:
    115x5x5 - going to stay here...

    Deadlift:
    225x5, 315x2 - holy **** 315 hurts my hands lol...calluses cinch up and I can't grab the bar anymore...can't wait for the versagripps to get in..

    Pullups to Failure:
    x19, x13.5, x10 - Still increasing here

    Chinups to failure:
    x15, x12, x10 - surprised myself on these as well

    Prone Bridge:
    3x 60 seconds

  18. And what I just finished up, 21 DEC 10:

    Squat:
    135x10, 225x5, 315x5x5 - These felt good...bar didn't roll on me, I got down lower than last time, hips were not bugging me as bad. I'm going to stick at 315 as my working weight until I can nail 90 degrees with it. Might take me awhile as 90 degrees has my ass about 6 inches off the ground...really bothers my hips If I have more than my body weight going to 90. To compensate for not being able to go to 90 I go pretty slow, deep breath, 5 seconds down, 2 or 3 seconds up, repeat.

    Bench Press:
    135x10, 225x5, 225x3, 185x5x3 - Elbows were killing me during the second set of 225, had to drop the weight, they were still killing me even with 185 but I slowed down a lot to work my chest. Pretty sure I am damn close to CNS failure, luckily the gym is going to be closed for a few days so I will rest good. Met my goal though and got back to 225x5 so I was happy.

    Inverted Row to Failure:
    x25, x15, x11 - improved on all 3 sets. These almost feel exactly like pushups so I think they might be playing on the pushup sucking last few days.

    Pushups to Failure:
    x25, x15, x12 - I increased these from last time...but I am using this as my guide for CNS failure...90% sure I am very close as I went from 65 on the first set to 20 in one day...I don't think it is a pump any more. Break is coming soon.

    Reverse Crunch:
    x20, x20, x20 - These are easy.

    That's it, proud of myself on the compound movements and a little worried about my elbows but I think I just need a good rest, I've been pushing myself harder than I should for a 5x5 in order to get back into heavy weights before my super first cycle and my body is feeling it. I'm gaining weight pretty damn fast though...Woke up this morning at 187.2, 32.5" waist at the belly button and 42" chest unflexed, so I am making fast progress and am just about where I was when I left Iraq. Feeling confident that I can push enough weight to really start making big gains on the cycle.

  19. Nice workouts bro!!!

  20. Check this **** out:

    29DEC-
    -----------
    I just invented a new thing. I call it Double Down Sets. Read on.

    What I decided to do, since New Years will be crazy, was smoke the hell out of my body. I picked my heaviest weight I was comfortable working with and could complete a respectable amount of reps with for each exercise, knocked them out until form failure, dropped the weight a bit, doubled the reps, rinsed and repeated until I hit the lowest weight or just the bar. It worked, I feel damn good and am going to be sore tomorrow!
    -------------
    Squat:
    315x10 -- 225x20 -- 135x40 -- 45x80 -- Yeah I rest-paused sometimes lol. ~15 minutes to complete
    -----------
    Deadlift:
    315x5 -- 225x10 -- 135x20 -- Legs were dying so I didnt do the bar
    Bench PRess:
    225x5 -- 185x10 -- 135x20 -- 45x40 -- No rest pausing but damn it hurt.
    -----------
    Pullup:
    x14, x8, x8 - Just enough rest to get a drink of water
    -----------
    Inverted Row:
    x8 - Back was smoked by now
    -------------
    Hammer Curls:
    40x5 -- 30x10 -- 20x20 -- 10x40
    ------------
    Arnold Press:
    40x10 -- 30x19.5 -- 20x20 -- 10x40 -- Should have only dropped 3 times, was no way I was getting 20x40.
    ------------
    Rotator Cuff work, 10x15 slow reps
    -----------
    Reverse Crunches are my favorite ab exercise now, x30, x30.
    -----------
    Stretching.
    -----------

    So I am well on my way to getting to 200 before my test arrives. In my workout clothes on the scale right this second I weighed 196.8. I will give my clothes 5 lbs and that is very liberal. We'll see what I wake up at in the morning but if its over 190 I will be a very happy camper, weight is steadily rising, waist is not changing, BF is not changing, everything is as it should be :P

    And test is on the way!

    killer workout bro!!!

    Sounds a little like drop sets what you were doing..Did you rest after your droped the weight some or went right back into it? Either way looks like a helluva good time!! Gonna try it out one day
