    Bump it. Lol, I never hesitate with that stuff. Good feedback on those bi lifts though. I'm pretty sure I know what article your referring to. I'll have to throw some of those in my next split.

Sink down into a squatting position first, and if you can hack it, into a kneeling position. If you can hack that, sink your butt down to the floor. Continue the stretch for 60 seconds. Do not be surprised if you don't make it 6osec as it will be very painful, lol. IT is an extreme stretch for bi's. If you last 60sec, then you need to raise the bar up another notch, because it is too low.
    Good idea bro. I've been considering incorporating some DC stretching into my workouts. I don't want to try DC, at least not now, but the stretching portion has always intrigued me. Seems as if your liking it. I might throw in the chest stretch after today's workout just to see how it feels. I'll definitely try the bicep stretch next arm workout.

    Chest

    Bench Press


    225 x 10

    Post Workout Thoughts:

    Very solid workout. Didn't have my normal workout partner so I was stuck with a half ass spotter, but no big deal. For some reason my chest was absolutely demolished after the bench press and by the time I finished inline and made my way to dumbbells it was all I could do to move them. Needless to say I had an insane pump going by the time I was finished. I would have done some flies, but by the time I finished my shoulder was starting to feel pretty sore, along with my entire left arm, but all in all it was a very good workout. Flat barbell bench, last set of 275 went from 3 reps (with assistance on third) to 5 reps (with assistance on fifth). Incline went from 195 for 6 reps to 205 for 6 reps.

    to further quote the great theologian, St Ron Coleman, "ain't nutt'n but a peanut."

    Nice bench and you've been very consistent with your workouts. Looking good.

    and damn, your weight is Heathing up.

    I've been trying to make that "Heath up" thing work ever since I read his article in FLEX, j/k. Seriously though, your weight is climbing fast.

    Post Workout Thoughts

    Incredible workout! I was worried about possible back pumps so I've dosed probably close to 15 grams of taurine today split between this morning and preworkout. I then proceeded to throughly stretch my back between sets as I blasted my old deadlift records. Last week my last two sets were 405 for 6 reps and 425 for 3 reps. This week my last three sets were 405 for 8 reps, 435 for 5 reps, and 455 for 2 reps. **** yea!

    I did T-Bar rows for the first time today. I really liked the contraction I got in my back doing them. 4 plates was a little heavy as I felt my form starting to slip and the contraction getting worse, so I decided to drop back down to 3 plates and really focus on the contraction and just getting the overall feel for the exercise.

    After the T-Bar rows I went to pulldowns. Once again I did them using the bar with handles on the end allowing me to grip the bar so that my palms were facing one another. I love the contraction and the pump I get doing them in this manner. If anyone is struggling feeling regular pulldowns or pullups in there lat's, I highly suggest giving this a exercise a chance. Really focus on getting a full, complete, controlled contraction so you can really feel your lower lat's firing.

    Thanks Volcom and hopefully I'll be pulling 5 plates here soon. The cycle was originally planned to last 3 weeks, so there is only one more scheduled deadlift day. I have no doubt that I would at least be able to pull 475 for at least a single next, but I'm not sure if 495 is quite possible next week. We'll have to see though. Maybe during PCT



    Just an update: I'm absolutely loving the combination of SD and Methoxy-TST. I feel great. No lethargy. My libido is raging. Not sure if it's increased or not, but I'm a pretty horny person anyways so it's hard to tell Unfortunately it's impossible to tell if I just react favorably to SD or if the M-TST is simply covering up the side effects of the SD. Either way I'm thrilled so far with the results and with the exception of one day of awful back pumps, the absence of sides. However, there is still plenty of time for that to change, but I foresee the rest of this cycle continuing to run smoothly.

    Day 10 - Wednesday, August 6, 2008

    OFF



    I took a much needed off day today to let my body recoup from the heavy back workout yesterday. The DOMS were awesome today as I could feel them all the way up and down and all the way across my back. Very effective workout yesterday. Tomorrow will be an intense shoulder workout. If I get carried away I might put 2 plates on the military press!

    I love trap DOMS! Makes you feel huge! Since I've started to incorporate deads my traps have exploded. Much more than just direct trap work with shrugs.

    #1. Fu Sho with Deads blowing up your traps.
    #2. Damn Markus Ruhl!! Not to take away from Ruuuuuuhhhhhl's 10 plate shoulder press there, but there's a highly likely chance the blue and yellow plates are different in weight. KG plates generally work like that. Nonetheless, he's probably still pushing in the 405's+.

    Markus is truly a freakin' beast. One of the strongest mo-fo's out there! Too bad he tore his right pec and retired! That's the dangers of super high-intensity training! I changed my avi to show you my torn right pec! I have the same battle-scar as Markus. My pec is as strong as ever (maybe even stronger) but the cosmetic damage is permanent. It's always gonna have the huge dent in the side and on the top of it!! Oh well... live and learn. I make sure to warm-up very thoroughly, stretch religiously, and perform all exercises perfectly!!

    Injuries suck. I got my strength up to doing Barbell Rows with 405lbs for a solid 6-8 reps. Then one day, during a warm up set of 275lbs (my working sets started at 315), I got a nasty, sharp, sharp pain shoot through my lower back and I couldn't really walk for 3 days. I couldn't bend over to put on socks, I couldn't get out of bed without rolling onto my stomach and crawling off, I couldn't get in and out of my car without taking about 2-3 min to slowing climb in or out using my car door.

    To this day I still can't do Deads, Barbell Shrugs, or Rows (obviously), but I am thankful I can walk pain free.

    Day 11 - August 7, 2008

    Shoulders

    Seated Barbell Military Press


    185 x 10
    195 x 10
    205 x 9
    215 x 7
    225 x 5

    Laterals

    35 x 15
    40 x 12
    40 x 10
    35 x 10

    Front Raises

    30 x 12
    35 x 12
    35 x 12
    35 x 12

    Barbell Shrugs

    225 x 15
    315 x 12
    315 x 8
    quit after 8th rep of 3rd set...back was hurting too bad to continue


    Post Workout Thoughts

    Very good workout until the back pumps set in. But anyways, military press went extremely well. Look at these numbers:

    Day 4:

    175 x 10
    185 x 10
    195 x 8
    205 x 5

    Day 11:

    185 x 10
    195 x 10
    205 x 9
    215 x 7
    225 x 5

    Enough said! The laterals went good as well. Did 40's for the first time ever. By the time I got to barbell shrugs my back was pumped beyond belief. There was no way I could continue. The pain was unbearable. So I'm going to put legs off until Saturday and do arms tomorrow instead.

    Great presses on the Military. Your strength is great for 205. Keep it up bro.

    I see you've implemented my progressive side by side comparison method. Looks great.

    Thanks for the kind words Volc. I'm really starting to love the military press for some reason. It's definitely helping to bring out my shoulders too. Nothing adds size better than heavy compound movements in my opinion. You don't build a chest by doing flies...you build a chest by bench pressing. You build legs with squats and leg presses, and you build a back with deads and rows. Same with shoulders. I can tell a big difference in my shoulder development since I've started concentrating on my military presses.

    Of course I had to copy your side by side comparison method. No better way of seeing your improvements than to see what you did previously and how much you beat those weights by this time. You just continue to inspire me Volc. Congrats on being able to pull deads again!

    Post Workout Thoughts:

    Another very good workout. I'm loving this cycle. My tri's were so pumped by the time I finished pushdowns it was difficult doing bi's, but I worked through it and got another amazing bicep workout in. My biceps were pumped beyond belief by the time I finished. The combination of the wide grip barbell curls and inclined dumbbell curls has brought a whole new aspect into my bicep routine. For the first time in my life have I been able to achieve mind blowing pumps in my biceps. I will continue to train bi's in this manner for a while as I definitely expect to see some nice improvements in that area down the road.

    I decided to throw in the isolation curls at the end just to mix things up. The cables were taken and I wanted to do the same exercise I did last week but I didn't feel like waiting so I just grabbed a 25 lb dumbbell and sat down on the edge of a bench and went to town. They put the exclamation point on an already great workout.

    Tomorrow will be legs, so we'll see how my back is feeling. If it's hurting then you'll see a lot of leg presses, but as of now the plan is to hit the squats pretty hard.

    On a side note; completely irrelevant, but there was a guy there working chest doing sets of 5 on flat bench with 395 with no spot and making it look like it was 135. When I left I spoke to him for a minute and he was curling what looked like 80's or 90's with absolutely perfect form. No swaying. No momentum. Nothing but pure bicep contraction. Absolute beast.

    Post Workout Thoughts


    Good workout today. Back was a little sore before I even started but it surprisingly held up through front squats, even without a belt today. My quads were on fire after just a few sets of squats. The weight on the front squats went up some today from last week and I believe I had much better form today. After front squats I went and pumped out some intense high rep sets on the leg press. I had to workout in a different weight room today which sucked because I hate these weight rooms. The leg press felt different as far as the motion goes so I'm not sure if the strength increase on the leg presses can be solely contributed to new muscle growth, or partly due to differences from one machine to the next. By the time I finished the leg presses my back was really starting to tighten up so I decided to call it quits which was ok as far as quads are concerned. Unfortunately I didn't get to do any calves, but I'll hit them at the beginning of next week to make up for it. My ham's get torched doing deads so they got plenty of work this week. Plus my ham's are over-developed compared to my quads so it will give my quad's a chance to catch up.

    I'm interested to see how next week is going to go because I'm going to have to work out in a different part of the gym because my usual rooms are going to be closed. To make it easier to understand, there is two separate buildings that make up the gym here at my school. Well since summer school just ended, they are closing down the one building next week and the other is going to be on restricted hours. The part that is going to be open is actually newer, but you can tell it was designed to better accommodate the gym's female users. Probably 100+ pieces of cardio equipment and they just threw in some actual weights where there was room left. The dumbbells only go up to like 60 pounds and there is a lot of equipment they don't have. No decline bench, military press, etc. So I'm going to have to make due the best I can. The only thing that is really going to be a problem might be deads, but **** it. I pay $15,000 dollars a year so I'm going to do whatever I want. They are picky up there about keeping things clean and such so if some body comes and says something to me about having a gym bag with me, and chalking up, and making a racket, I'll tell just have to tell them to **** off. I'm shooting for 5 plates Tuesday!!!


    Weight upon waking: 204 lbs (Went out last night. Didn't drink or anything, but I think the combination of being out all night and then sleeping in all day cause the weight drop, as this seems to happen on the weekends a lot of times.)

    Definitely man. I couldn't be happier with the size I've managed to put on so far. Two weeks in and I'm up 8 or 9 pounds. The combination of SD and 6,000 calories a day is sure to put some size on just about anybody. SD has an amazing partitioning ability too. Consuming that much food I was expecting to put on some fat, but I must say that any fat gain has been minimal. I feel and look just as lean as when I started the cycle. The fact that I've had hardly any sides all cycle is another major plus. Just a few back pumps, but I think they can be just as much attributed to the deadlifts as to the SD. I've got one week left so hopefully things will continue in the same positive manner.

    Edit: Most importantly, my libido is still kicking at full force

    On the leg press are those plates per side or altogether?

    Also remember with SD it tends to have a diuretic type effect in some people the first week or two....so it seems like its partitioning well just b/c it'sd drying you out, however you still may be getting fat. Or at least thats been my experience with it. Obviously not saying its true for you of course.

    Regardless sounds like the gains are coming on nicely. I think you'll get that 5 plater dead soon.

    TT--Way to do this thing bro!! SD is the sh*t is it not?!! It's my favorite legal compound. It really works if the person taking it will adhere to taking in extra clean carbs, train harder and longer than when off-cycle, and be sure to get the proper sleep and rest that they need. I'm ecstatic about your weight and strength gains at just 2 weeks in! You should finish off big and strong at the end of this journey. KEEP BLASTIN'!!

    Thanks bro. The more and more I learn, it all comes back to food. You can't grow without food, and lots of it. No amount of anabolics will make up for lack of food. You have to eat big to get big. I remember in one of his movies, Jay Cutler mentions consuming upwards of 1000 grams of carbs per day during the offseason.

    Once you lay out a diet and stick to it for a week or two eating that much food isn't too hard. Throw in some liquid calories (protein shakes) and it doesn't make you feel like absolute **** all day the way that packing down that much solid food would.

    Well thanks for making me feel like a fat ass...

    Just kidding bro, but your probably right about the diuretic effects helping to cover some possible fat gain. I guess I'll know for sure here in a couple weeks. I was prepared for a little fat gain. If I wasn't I wouldn't have been eating anywhere near as many calories over maintenance. Either way it looks like I may be looking at a cut in the near future. Maybe a cut involving either some clen or albuterol right before I jack my calories back up and start my test cycle!

    Thanks bro. SD is awesome. The sides have been almost non-existent, except for my shrunken testicles I think that using the original AX SD was a definite plus. The majority of the horror stories I see are from people have ran one of these cheap clones. I couldn't be happier with the gains I've made so far this cycle and hopefully they'll continue for one more week and hopefully even into PCT.

    Lol, I like to rain on the parade sometimes. I'd agree with thunder SD is a crazy strong OTC oral. I still hate seeing my HDL tanked after using it though.
