SS's no Supplements Muscle Memory Log
I just feel like keeping a log...
Well after becoming a roid popping anabolicaholic behemoth, I fell off the wagon and didn't have the consistency or drive for about 2 years.
I've been back in the gym since Jan. 1st, and I'm officially BACK! I've had IMO awesome gains in the past two months, considering the only "supps" I take are caffeine powder and 4mg nicotine gum, and I just recently added Clear Edge. Oh yeah, protein powder too.
Benching a measly 185X10, but up from 185X5 two months ago. Max at my biggest, strongest juicing point was 275X8
Squating 225X10, up from 185X8. Previous max was 275X16 (was trying to get to 20 reps with 275 at the time)
DL 365X9 today.:dl: I actually pulled 315X10 the first time I DL'd since I started back up. Previous max was 405X12.
DB rows at 100lbX15.
(My gerbil is) gonna start start up a real sweet peptide cycle soon, and hopes to eclipse his previous marks within 3-4 months, as well as be :bb2: :bb: :bb3:

I'm sure a nice clean and healthy baseline will allow for future progress.
On a note regarding strength; I lift less now than I did 5 years ago. Yet I am much more muscular and have absolutely no joint/tendon/ligament issues that I did back when I lifted heavier. In my opinion, be it so humble; any dummie can get big lifting heavy weights. It takes intelligent lifting to get big without going heavy. This lack of strength display certainly does not discourage the "how much do you bench?" comments.
Look at all these little kids takin' care of the music biz don't their bus'ness take good care of me...
I had a 3 day split going... Chest/tris; back/bis/lateral delts; legs. Just throwing in abs, calves, traps, obliques, etc. when I felt like it.
I've just switched to a 4 day split.
Anything I'm leaving out? Thoughts of this split?
Good luck SS.
Otter - I thought you were dead, or something.
I haven't honestly thought of that S/N in a damn long time. Hopefully you've wised up a bit in the last few years.
I should have taken yesterday off, I was sore from head to toe, and still taxed from deadlifting, but I just couldn't stay away...
DB rows 85X15 x2 sets. Did slow negatives here, since 85 is kinda light and the gym I was at didn't have anything bigger.
1 set of pulldowns with rope. This sucked, I wanted to use a close grip extension but couldn't find one in the entire gym.
2 sets each arm of single arm pulldowns.
2 sets cable pullovers.
2 sets rear delt machine.
Pretty sub par workout, but I half expected it. Gonna take today and tomorrow off, and hit legs hard on Tuesday.:squat: Then I got my girlfriend flying in on Thursday...Hopefully my training doesn't go to shhit for 10 days. At least I'll be getting that HIIT going several times a day though...
Today I tried my free sample of SMASH by Axis Labs
SMASH Pre-workout Cocktail!
Good stuff. Get some!
Squat 245X12 (up 20lbs)!!!
Leg press. 6 plates for 4, 5 plates for 8. I don't really leg press too much.
Lying leg curl, set of 6@135 and 8@120. This gym has the hardest lying leg curl ever, normally I can rack these things but this one is crazy.
Leg extensions. Rack X 12, rack X 7.
Set of adductor and abductor.:bruce3:
I'm very happy. My strength is climbing at rates I didn't think possible without gear. Maybe it's my diet. The modified See Food Diet. Modified meaning I just add a lot of protein. Weight is at 235, somewhere between :donut: and :bb3: but a bit closer to the former.
I'm a big fan of smileys!
A long time ago Lean One declared himself the king of smileys.
I gotta disagree on that one though.
Good luck, SS, and if you ever lose motivation I would be more than happy to kick your ass to the gym, oh, and just for hell of it I'll borrow pink shirt from CrazyOtter and then he will be able to put in his signature
THE OTTER LIVES!
"ever get knocked out by a guy with a pink shirt on?" YES! SS!!!
I tried NO-Xplode today, to compare to the SMASH. My impressions: 1 serving of SMASH > 1 serving of NO-Xplode for focus, strength, and intensity. I did however look incredibly hyooge :bb: today whilst flexing after my workout:bb3:. Pumps were good too, but nowhere near as good as good old A A S. Strength was sh itty, though. I planned on taking today off but school let out early due to snow and ice. So I took a 3 hour nap and headed to the gym for chest and bis.
Flat DB press 85X9 (last week flat BB bench 185X10)
Incline DB press 75X6
Flat Bench 155X7 had to stop because wrist hurt too bad.
Flat bench 115X11 see above.
Incline hammer, 45 and 25 each side for 10; another set with 45 and 5 each side for 14.
Pec Dec (the one that doubles as rear delt machine) 165X6; 135X6
DB curl 40X8; 30X8
1 set of single arm rope cable curl with some little gay weight:bruce3:
And then I was off to flex in front of the mirror. Monsterrific I might say!:bb3:
DB rows 100X15; 100X7
2 sets pulldowns
2 sets of cable pullovers X 5 straight into cable rows
1 set cable rows
1 set cable pullovers
2 sets of light curls slower than normal to failure, sets of 16; 10
Squat 255X10-Last week 245 felt like a feather for 12 reps, this week I add 10 lbs and it feels like a dump truck full of bricks on my back. Another set of squats at 205X12. Only difference is that I used SMASH last week. I'm gonna have to pick some up for sure.
Leg extensions RACK for 14; RACK for 8
Hard Crazy lying leg curl 135X12; 135X8
Both of those lifts are up, but I pushed wayyy harder because I wanted 12 reps of the 255lb squats.
My wrist is really f'd up. I really need to take some time off with my right arm, but it's just so hard to get away now that I'm back in full fledged BB/PL mode.
Flat Bench 185X11
^ That set and the 11th rep especially took a lot out of me, and hurt my wrist like hell, so all my DB presses were down.
Flat DB 85X4
Incline DB 70X6
One other set of DB presses, can't remember weight
Flat Hammer Strength Press (2)45 plates each side for 8 reps
Decline " " : (1) 45 and (1) 25 for 10
2 Sets of pec dec
2 sets of cable crosses
2 sets of DB hammer curls LEFT 50X4, 40X6 RIGHT 40X8, 40X6
Throughout this workout I had one of the worst headaches I've ever had in my life.
Then I went and shoveled snow for 2 hours.
1 set of lying sideways on an incline bench lateral raises 30X15
2 sets of cable lateral raises with little girly weight.
2 sets of DB calf raises.
1 set decline situpsX20
1 set leg raises X20.
I bought a wrist brace with magnets. Seems to work pretty well so far. No pain during sets at all. Wrist is still pretty messed up though overall.
I also tried out my Purple Wraath sample! I had a really good pump that I didn't even really expect. My face was burning a little bit, like I had taken a big dose of niacin. That feeling smacked me in the face in the middle of my first set. Overall I liked it a lot.
DB rows 85X15 for 3 sets.
2 sets of pulldowns
1 set of tricep pressdowns with my left arm supersetted with cable curls
Tried to do the same with my right but it hurt my wrist too bad so I aborted
1 set of cable pullovers
This workout was a lot shorter/less volume than what I've been doing lately.
