    No just kind of throwing it in here and there. It is a nice way to lift. I like 531 on some lifts more than others. For squat it is pretty good and the same with press. Hell I dont usually do standing press unless it is 531. For bench 531 is ok. I dont like it for deadlift. In fact I forgot to log a back workout where I did 531 for deadlifts only did 460 for 9 reps which is a pitiful estimated 600 max. Doesnt look like I will be hitting 700 anytime soon.

    With that said I definitely look better. Getting closer to looking better without a shirt on than with. Still got a ways to go. It is hard as hell making 250 at 5'7" look good haha.

    Since I will be looking to build muscle more I think I will be adding intra workout carbs. Gaspari's Glycofuse has caught my eye. Will add some protein with it. Along with bcaas and creatine. Figure my workouts will be more intense on cycle. Time to GROW(more)!

    Also plan on picking up some new protein. Should only aid in my growth.

    Thinking I will try and pick up foam roller too.

    Yeah, you tried hitting me up earlier with my intra-carb knowledge, unfortunately I'm limited there, but I believe Chris - MrKleen73 has some good knowledge in that arena... try hitting him up. As far as BCAA's are concerned, you absolutely must give our new FINAFLEX BCAA's try with the Silk Aminos (SAA's), Wow, they are AWESOME Bro!!! They taste amazing too!

  4. I've been out of AM for a long time, school work, and writing, I entered a contest and I've made it to the top 5... Glad to see your still killing it...lol
    RIP Ryan, :(

  5. Started my day with 30 minutes of light cardio. Went to the chiropractor today. Got an adjustment, got on the spinulator(sp?), and then a massage. Hard to complain about a day like that. Then later went to the eye doctor. Got my eyes checked out. Somehow I always end up with a hot tech. Again not the worst way for a day to go. Checked if it was ok to workout after having my eyes dilated and it turns out it is. It did make driving in the dark and rain a bit harder.

    Picked up a few recovery tools today. Bought a foam roller. Plus went to g n c looking for Gasparis Glycofuse but they didn't have it. Ended u getting VPX Carbonix(I think that's the name). It has the same carb source.

    Today was legs so a great test for new massage therapist and carbs intra workout. But I did forget my gym bag. Thought it was in my trunk which it wasn't.

    Squats 531 training max of 405
    265*5, 305*5, 345*10 not really up to my standards but I haven't exactly been doing them.
    Leg press 5 sets of 15 reps with 450. Last set had 3 negatives.

    Seated leg curls PSR 2 sets of 75/120/165/195/210
    Lying eg curls 2 sets of 10 reps with 2 negatives 130/130
    Stiff leg deadlifts 3 sets of 10 reps with 245

    Seated calf raise 100 reps as few as sets possible
    Calf press 3 sets of 10 reps with 270

    During my workout I felt great. No sign of slowing down even with a brutal workout. I was sweating like crazy. I think even more than usual.

    Found out the gym does have a scale. Got on it post workout weighted in at 256.7. This was after my workout loaded with water.

    Also asked a girl if she would take some pics for me. She said yes and seems more than happy to do it. Might have to bring up an old post to bring u details of said girl.

    So far the intra carbs from VPX Carbonx have been a blessing. Makes grueling workouts easier to finish. Usually I have to grind them out but last 2 workouts just continued my pace. Plus using more weight since I am not as beat down. Not a fan of the chocolate flavor with my vanilla protein and raspberry bcaas.

    It was good to talk to you tonight. Good luck.

    Didnt write everything down but got the highlights.

    Incline BB fat gripz ELECT 5*3 135/165/195/215/235 drop to 185 for 16 reps
    Decline BB fat gripz ELECT 5*3 185/215/245/275/305 drop to 245 for 9 reps

    DB pullovers 2 sets of 10 reps 70

    Bench fat grips 531 205*3, 235*3, 265*8

    Pulldowns fat gripz 3 sets of 10 reps 15/14/13

    BB curls Fat gripz PSR 1 set 50/70/90/100/110
    BB curl 1 set 10 reps plus 3 negatives 90
    Preacher curls 3 sets of 10 reps last set 2 negatives 65/65/65
    1 arm standing concentration curls 3 sets of 8 reps 40/35/35
    Triceps rope ext fat gripz 2 sets of 12 reps with 12

    Another damn good workout. Felt pretty good. Strength wasnt too bad. I am sure I could get more on bench but I blew 2 loads on incline and decline. Think I will start the M-Sten on Thursday. Tomorrow I will take a rest day.

    I think I have figured out my routine set up for this run. Seems like it should flow well.

  7. Solid numbers man.

  8. Got some pictures taken this morning. It was a girl from a while back. The one from the bonfire with the boyfriend. Seeing yourself in pictures can suck haha. She didn't seem to mind helping me. But she did post on facebook that she was helping me didn't say with what. Texted her later thanking her and saying I might ask her to do it again later. Got no reply back and that facebook status is no longer there haha.

    To make things more awkward. The 4 of them from the bonfire are leaving for a cruise tonight 3am. I talked to my friend Michael about going and playing black ops 2 over his house tonight. The girl and her boyfriend will be staying there so they can travel for the cruise. Pretty sure I wont be going over there haha. My friend Michael even asked what she was talking about on facebook via text.

    So going over there ended up being not that awkward. Jessica(girl who took pics) and Adam(her bf) were the ones driving at 3am so they pretty much went to bed when I got there. There was awkwardness but that was just them being them pretty much. I wont be surprised when I hear how weird they were on the cruise haha.

    Michael talked about maybe setting me up with his wife's cousin. He has to run that one by the wife first. I think Candace likes me. Never saw a pic of the cousin though. Not sure how to take Michael's opinion of her. Cross that bridge when it comes.

    Ended up taking a day off from the gym. Been a bit tired lately. Not too sore though. I did take 2 naps when I got home. Probably still sleep like a rock tonight. Definitely need the sleep. Even though I didnt lift today I am going to have a bit of carbs.

    Tomorrow I WILL have some pizza.

  10. haha, thx for the laugh! Still killing it eh man!

    I try and make people laugh. Workouts have been great. Loving the ne4pw intra workout drink. Might go back to g n c and return the vpx cairbs. Got Glycofuse in the mail yesterday plus 2000 grams of creatine.

    I start the M-Sten today. 1 at 12pm and another 4pm.

    Did a back work out on Wednesday. The main thing was deadlift 531 style. Got 485 for 8 reps estimated at 615 so an improvement.

  12. hella strong man. You even got mattrag to poke his ugly head!

  13. Today was day one of M-Sten. I am going to sound like a crazy fool when I post in the log I start for it. I swear I noticed SOMETHING today. While I did add more Carbonx to my intra shake it wouldnt account for the workout I had. The pumps were insane and I was thirsty as all hell. On top of that I didnt really sweat. I am usually drenched in sweat after a workout. Ended up checking my weight post work out and it was 258.9. Obviously post workout isnt the ideal to check it. After my workout would have been a great time to take pics... not when I just wake up haha.

    I will try and post about todays workout. Got a little disorganized. Started out by myself and then lifted with Hector.

    Seated shoulder press fat gripz ELECT 5*3 115/135/155/175/195/215
    Upright rows cable PSR 7/10/13/15/16 drop to 12 rep out
    Press 531 145*3, 170*3, 190*5 Pretty disappointed in this, but I think last time was an outlier.
    Standing DB lateral raise 2 sets of 8 reps 45 pounds

    Close grip bench fat grips ELECT 5*3 225/235/245/255/265 drop to 225 for 10 reps
    Dips till I get 50 reps
    Reverse bench 225 for 10 reps 1 set
    Close grip bench, this is when I started lifting with Hector
    Rope triceps ext fat gripz superset with tricep cable ext kickback(?)
    Tricep ext triangle bar

    Probably going to be sore as hell tomorrow. Tore my triceps a new one.

    Some weird things about todays workout. I was thirsty as hell and didnt really sweat.

    OMG is it bad this song excites me?

  14. It's the mental edge of being on dude. I swear. I know what you mean. Nice workout.

    Man, est 615 deadlifts... Nuts man... My max conventional deadlift is like 365... I doubt I could do 315 anymore though.
    Your 300 above my max! Keep killing it, and let us know what the m-sten adds.

    Ya there was no complaining about what we were lifting. "More close grip bench? Sounds good to me" plus I added fat gripz to everything. Putting that old(43) man through hell haha. After using them today he said he was going to buy some.

    I cant wait to lift back tomorrow. Shouldnt do deadlifts but who knows. Will be more of a hypertrophy day. I like the idea of doubling up on back for this cycle at least for a short while.

    615 isnt anything. I got 635 a little while back. Wish I could say that is where I started the cycle at. My overal max is 675 and I wish I could surpass that but it is unlikely in 4 weeks.

    Also I had CRAZY pumps going. Need to see if I can get Jessica to take pics after a workout

    Ya it should be fun. Havent really tried it before.

    She already came over to take the pics, but that was in the morning. Nothing "happened" but maybe a post workout pic session would be a little different. My back looked HUGE in one pic and I said how I needed to work on getting rid of my love handles. She said she needed to too so I went to grab hers... they didnt exist. She has a great body and I hope I can see more haha.

    Feeling great today so I am going to do a pressing day. Bit of chest and shoulders.

  21. Damn didnt realize how much I had been slacking on this log. Will repost my workouts after I lift.

  22. Hope you had a great Christmas.
    RIP Ryan, :(

  23. When I saw this pop up in my list I thought to myself I am going to be so far behind because I havent been there in a while. What a surprise... C'mon we need to hear more tales of possibilities and awkward moments.

    Haha my bad man. Been a bit caught up in my M-Sten log. Plus been under the weather a bit lately on top of the lethargy. Honestly I havent been out causing havoc lately. Havent really tried contacting Jessica lately. Only like the day after she got back from their cruise. Tried on facebook but that hasnt always been a reliable way of communication. Will send her a text tomorrow during the day. I know for a fact I look freaky compared to 2 weeks ago. I mean if there isnt a noticeable "he is on something" change then I would be shocked. Which is exactly why I choose Jessica as opposed to say my sister or friend Michael. Plus what guy doesnt want a cute girl taking pics of him? I mean I have added probably 10ish pounds and I am leaner. If that doesnt scream something is up Idk what does.

    Saturday night I will be going to what should be a fairly big get together. Chance of single ladies but most likely a bunch of couples BLAH haha.
