    RenegadeRows Journal


    This will be a scattered and cluttered journal of sorts. Enjoy the ride if you can hang on.

    -
    Age/Stats/Pics/Goals/Etc
    24 / 5'8" / 156lbs / Training for 3 years seriously
    Goals: Constantly lean bulk. Lift heavy, eat a little above maintenance. Slow and steady wins the race.



    Style: Constantly changes. Me and my workout partner usually have 3 workouts: Push / Pull / Legs. We are constantly inventing new ways of pushing ourselves and will jump around from high volume bodyweight exercises to cluster sets of heavy weight. I'm not going to post numbers of the weight I use because it's really not that important to me, personally. I increase the intensity various ways and always make sure to put 110% into a workout.

    -
    Nutrition / Supplements
    I primarily use CONTROLLED LABS products to fuel my fire. I try to get a macro of 40/40/20 but it is hard for me to get my diet in check because of various circumstances. I do the best I can with what I have.

    6/29


    I'm gonna catch up on the past two workouts.

    6/29: Pull

    Deadlifts 5 sets of 3
    Chinups 5 sets of 10
    BB Rows 5 sets of 7
    Lateral Raises 3 sets of 15
    Shrugs 3 sets of 30
    Buddy curls total of 132 reps

    Thoughts
    I actually trained legs about 4 hours previous to this workout. I just did a number of squats and calf raises. My deadlifts were weak due to this. However my chins were strong with good form, as well as my rows. I was nice and sore the 'day after'.

    7/1


    7/1: Push

    Pre Workout:
    2 scoops GlycerGROW
    1 scoop Green MAG + 2 scoops Purple WRAATH

    Insanity peppers:
    Cluster sets of 3RM bench press, did 10 sets
    Incline flyes 3 sets of 20+ reps with low weight
    Skullcrushers chicken: 5 sets
    Dips supersetted with pushups: not that many :P

    Post workout: Golden FinisH

    Thoughts
    This workout was crazy and I was completely spent afterwards. If your wondering what I mean when I refer to 'chicken', it's basically me and my lifting partner grab dumbells and do an exercise at the same time and see which one fails first. It's a great way to motivate you to go to complete failure.

    The dips were really hard at the end, I could only manage 5 or 6 reps. We supersetted these with pushups and went at a fast pace.

    On a personal note, lately I've had to deal with alot of emotional pain from various sources. I've completely zoned out and focused all of that negative energy into lifting. It's left me a bit tired and beaten down but the gains I've made in the past few months have been really good.

    Do you work out at home?

    And dips really take it out of me at the end of a workout which is why I like to do weight dips at the start.

    Thanks for stopping in!

    Yes I have free weights, squat rack, dumbells and bench in my basement, as well as a power-tower in my garage (the picture.) Basic weights is all I use, no machines. I also like bodyweight exercises, and like to combine the two.

    Sometimes I do dips at first, depending on how I'm feeling. I like them at the end because, if you work chest and triceps together, this exercise hits both of them and is a nice ending to my workout.

    7/3


    7/3 - Legs

    Squats - 10 sets of 10
    Calf raises - 5 sets of 75 bodyweight

    Thoughts
    the glycergrow really put an amazing pump in my legs today. that combined with extreme stretching post workout has me feeling pretty great about my wheels. tomorrow is the 4th of july, but they are making me work in the morning so the weights dont get a day off either.

BTW...there is nothing better for motivation than emotional pain...you have the right idea of using the process of transference...turn a negative into a positive and kick some ass! Keep working hard bud always keep your head up.

    7/4


    happy 4th

    7/4 - Pull

    BB Rows - 7 sets of 7
    Chinups - 5 sets of 12
    Inverted rows - 5 sets of 10
    Lateral raises - 3 sets of 10
    Shrugs - 3 sets of 25
    DB curls - 3 sets of 15

    Thoughts
    Having a hard time typing cuz of the damn pump, HAH. Good workout today. I wasn't into the deadlifts because I did legs yesterday, but I had a great upper body pull session. Found my chins to be harder than normal, perhaps because I did rows first or weight gain (2lbs.) I WISH I COULD LOOK THIS WAY ALL THE TIME! I was very happy with the mirror today, the combination of traps + biceps made a very appealing reflection. I have to focus on rows to get a thicker back though.

    No fear in the gym, go raw at it 100%. Block every thought out except getting bigger, lifting more intense weights. If you want results, you have to work hard. Shut up and lift

    7/5 - Push

    Pre workout: 1 scoop GM + 2 scoops GG

    Bench press - 10 sets of 5
    Dips - 7 sets of 20

    Thoughts
    Had an abbreviated workout today, due to a BBQ and lifting alone. I wanted to get in a workout before taking tomorrow off and consuming calories this afternoon. I think it went well, my dips and bench both felt strong. I also got a session of extreme stretching in at the end.

    Cool down video

    7/7


    7/7 - 200 rep challenge

    1 scoop Purple wraath + 1 scoop GlycerGROW + 1 scoop Green MAGnitude + 100mg Caffeine

    100 pullups
    alternated with:
    100 dips

    Thoughts
    It was about 90 degrees today and doing this workout in my garage had me sweatin like a whore in church. I would do 15 pullups, 15 dips, 10 pullups, 10 dips, alternating as fast as i could until I reached 100 reps of each. It's a nice shocker to throw in every now and then. It's harder than you think

    Took yesterday and today off. It's very humid here, and I'm house sitting so I'm gettting in some much needed R&R. I also began a Yellow nEurphoria regiment, every few days dosing it for cortisol & stress relief. So far it's working, I feel refreshed. Be back tomorrow with some updates.

    Thoughts
    Todays workout was very intense. It was very hot, and we went at it hard, with little rest inbetween sets. A great cardio workout too. We are very good friends and push eachother very hard. Ending with the bodyweight exercises was key. Really burned us out.

    Am I freakin sore today. My whole upper body, and even my glutes and hammies are screaming at me. I'm hoping to get out of work early, consume massive amounts of Purple WRAATH / Protein / FOOD and take a long nap. Then wake up and take some Yellow nEuphoria. I had planned on working squats today, but that might have to wait until tomorrow.

    Mmmmmm, Purple Wraath... This has replaced my Xtend.
    Don't push it; just hit squats tomorrow, and throw in some squat jumps.
    Keep killin' it, man!

    Yes...100 pullups! Not in 1 set though
    Hard work = Good results!!!

    I only take the NOW Res, I think it's only 200mg, 1 cap per day. Haven't noticed much, maybe increase of libido a little bit. I plan on giving Stoked! a try down the road. My goal is to keep estrogen at bay naturally, but not erradicate it.

    Good workout. It's legs, ehh. I had a nice pump and seemed to go up in weight with my squats. I practice Kung fu, a style called Xingyiquan. It's internal style, like Tai chi. Here is a video of an example of the style I practice.
