  1. ManBeast's Recovery


    Ok, here's what I'm doing to get my joints, ligaments and tendons back in shape. I plan on doing this routine for at least one month, and probably 2 before making any major changes.

    Split is a Push/Pull/Legs (M,W,F) with cardio (M-Tr and either Sat, Sun or both) 30 minutes on the bike M,W and either 45 minutes on the bike or 30 minutes on the elliptical the other days.

    I will spend about 10 minutes pre-workout to stretch my muscles and get my heart pumping a bit.

    I will be doing 1 set of 20 reps, 1 set of 15 reps and 1 set of 10 reps for each exercise unless noted.

    Monday: Push
    Incline Bench Barbell Press
    Cable Tricep Extensions
    Machine Pec Flyes
    Abs (3 sets at bodyweight to near failure)
    Reverse Hyperextensions (3 sets at bodyweight to near failure)
    Cardio

    Tuesday: Cardio

    Wednesday: Pull
    Machine Horizontal Row
    Machine Lat Pulldown
    Machine Rear Delt Flyes
    Dumbell Arnold Curls
    Obliques (3 sets at bodyweight to near failure)
    Cardio

    Thursday: Cardio

    Friday: Legs/Shoulders
    Leg Press
    Calf Raise
    Quad Extensions
    Hamstring Curls
    Rotating Shoulder Press
    Dumbell Shrugs
    Lateral Shoulder Raise

    Sat: Rest

    Sun: Cardio

  4. Ok, I've looked at my stash (didn't realize I had so many goodies left!). And I'm supplimenting this program. I've decided I won't be "recovered" until I'm back in the shape I was when I left in 2005.

    Starting Sunday 4-6, I'll be doing the following as well:
    1 week Clen Pulse 100mcg on non lifting days (except Saturday).
    1x Stim-X on lifting days.
    1 week Tri-lean (1x hyperdrive 2x special Tactics 1x lean dreams).
    1 week Clen Pulse 100mcg on non lifting days (except Saturday).
    1x Stim-X on lifting days.

    In May I'll use up whatever clen I do have left on non-lifting days, no more than 100mcg per day 3x a week.
    (I'm keeping the clen use low, because I know how my body reacts to it. 4x a week is too much for me in general).

    In June I'll Run 1 month of Cissus RX and PowerFull at the standard bottle dosing along with some yohimbine.

    In July I'll run 1 month of Tri-Lean (1x hyperdrive, 3x special tactics, 1x lean dreams).

    In August I'll run 1 month of Anagen and Fenotest at the standard bottle dosing and some yohimbine.

    All of this will be done while cutting. My workout will definitely change throughout this. But I will be keeping my diet in check.

    If I can get down to a more reasonable BF% by the end of August, I will be rewarding myself with a 6 week pulse cycle of Superdrol starting in the second half of september. I'll then use November and December to recover, and start cutting again in January.

    I'm somewhat on a path to recovery too, so I understand how it must feel getting back into it.

  10. Awesome commitment to the cardio! Cardio is one my lazy points. But I'm getting it together

  11. I f*ckin hate cardio... Honestly... but I know of no other way to burn calories as efficiently

  12. I hate it as well. If I could dial the diet in every single day I would not need it. My training equals 45 min of cardio. But I ate super clean before the Arnold and then the day it was over I quit. So now i'm doing cardio to knock the damage off..sigh.

  13. Good luck to you Diet alone has never been enough for me unless i just want to maintain.

  15. Hi ManBeast, forgive me stupidity but what exactly are you recovering from? Did you stop lifting and are getting back on track?

  16. Silver: I'm recovering from being out of it.

    Weekend update: didn't take saturday off (walked about 5 miles or so), started CLEaNing today, but couldn't make it to the gym so I walked another 5 miles.

  17. Now that I think hard, while I was not working out i did sustain a solid injury to my left knee which had me in a soft brace for about 3-4 months. I also had to be on my feet a lot while wearing it which probably didn't help the healing. I can notice the atrophy which occured and has cause my legs to be asymetrical. I'll be working on this in the future.

  19. Clen cramps are the worst especially in the bottom of your foot! Taurine is your friend here.

  20. yeah i know, I thought that with a sunday, tuesday, thursday dosing schedule I might not need to use it. Guess I was wrong

    There is a guy on another board that lost an arm and I gave him a bottle of Havoc to help him get back on top again. He always reminds me that no matter how hard my workouts can be there are others who truly have to overcome. And he is doing it well instead of sitting around crying over it. Awesome perserverence.

    Yeah it is.I love the pics of bb'rs competing in wheel chairs or with fake legs.....I don't think I could do it.I'm already such a negative person really.Maybe it completely changes you though,I just thnk my change would be for the worse!Anyways,theirs an old bb'r who went through dialysis and almost died and all that.(I think Don Long?)He said now when he does cardio he remebers his days when he couldn't and others that still can't,and it makes it much easier to be fortunate enough to be able to do it.

  25. Thanks for the inspiring words!

    Ok, I'm really hating to love clen right now, so I'm going to finish up this week, then do the week of tri-lean, and then another week of clen. I can't do this for 2 weeks straight even if it is "pulsed" I must have forgotten about all the nasty sides in my old age, LOL.

    What is clen?

  29. LOL Hang in there with the clen, the sides diminish really quickly!! I mad myself SO sick with it when I first tried it...blech threw up for a whole day and shook like a chihuahua!!!lol!

  30. Are ya'll saying clenbuterol?Isn't that a steroid?Or am I wrong?Or are ya'll refering to something else.Sounds like a drug though.

  31. Clenbuteral is what we are referring to, its a research drug that helps in fat loss. It is considered anabolic in the first 3 weeks to help maintain muscle. But it has wicked sides!

  32. Thanks for heading up the answers crader

    I'm using the clen as a cutting agent. Ok... I'll stick with the two weeks straight IF I don't feel like crap tomorrow, I'll chalk yesterday up to being a terrible day (I feel a lot better now).

  36. So you trying to loose some fat obvisouly?Did you just stop working out all together and gain or what?What are your long term goals?

  37. Yep, basically stopped for about 6 months, worked out for 2 months, stopped for another four, worked out another 2, then got injured and stopped at the same time I started a job that really contributed to keeping me out of the gym for another 6 months.

    I've been doing cardio consistently for about 4 months now, but every time I'd hit the weights even medium heavy I'd really feel it in my joints for way too long, it just took some time for me to figure out how to go about all this the right way, and part of it was coming back here to AM.

    Yes, I'm trying to loose a ton of fat (ok more like 1/20th of a ton).

  39. Glucosamine Chondriton and MSM for now.

    *1-leg quad extensions (1x15): 50
    *1-leg hamstring curls (1x15): 55
    Dumbell Shrugs 40, 50, 60

    *I added these in to help bring my left leg up to my right, due to an injury last year it got very atrophied and I just noticed it this last week.

    I'm enjoying this workout, today was a bit brutal, probably because I didn't sleep well due to the weather and neighbors. The bad nasty sides of clen have subsided completely it seems, so the next week should be smooth sailing. I'm really looking forward to my day off tomorrow though!
