Looking great in here. Appreciate all of the detail, and now seeing what the Whoop strap data provides, I might have to upgrade from my fitbit! I particularly like the strain/recovery graphs.

There is a couple of things i love when it comes to the deload weeks.
  • As the workouts are shorter I got more time to spend on the warm ups and cool downs and im one of those that absolutely love my stretching. Unfortunately the saunas are closed due to Covid, or else id spend extra time there as well.
  • It helps me reset my ego when it comes to what weights i use. I always focus hard on stretching and contracting during deloads and the feeling is just so amazing.

Antother good deload session. I didnt sleep the best last night but the workout didnt suffer from it. But im feeling it now haha.

So i decided to buy a summer card at a local more "hardcore" gym that I havent worked out at before. The reason is that they have the sickest equipment, especially for legs. Stuff i havent tried in years plus stuff ive never used. They just got a Pendelum Squat for instance! Belt squats, vertical squats, a REAL hack squat etc etc. I think i can build some extra size there for sure.

Unfortunately its in a basment and I prefer natural light. But I can make do, all for the gains!

I love my home workout gym but that's one thing I miss is all the different accessory equipment. I may have to do the same.

The gym i work out at normally is nice. Its clean, fresh and has the basics. Also a huge locker room with a sauna etc.
But I miss being a "bodybuilder" and hitting all the angles of a muscle haha. Hopefully ill get that outta my system these 3 next weeks. If not, then i probably will have to change gyms permanently. But man there are alot of characters in that gym!

Second to last Deload in the can. I know it looks like a lot of volume but i went light and mainly wanted to try some machines to see how they suited me and some were amazing.

Being 6'2 i rarely find a leg extension that allows me to get a complete stretch AND contraction and this one did. its one of those old ones where you have the bar between your legs. So the weight isnt attatched to one of the sides.

Belt squat was a bit funky, the belt really dug into my hips even on light weights. But the movment was smooth as butter. I will absolutely use it, but i think ill stick to higher reps on that.

Pendelum Squat was HEAVY omg. I went ass to grass and barely needed any weights. Interestingly enough it required alot of core stabilization, especially from my abs. I kinda envisioned it to be much lighter on that, but my lower back didnt get anything so that is awesome.

I always like when i'm doing a leg exercise and I feel it hit my core. I feel more accomplished after my workout :LOL:

Weekly Report 17.May - 23.May
Week 11 M-Test

Diet:

(Everything tracked in MyFitnessPal)

205070

205071


Same update as last week. Ive had ZERO issues with dropping my refeeds.

Body Composition:
(Weight and body fat measured on a FitBit Aria Scale every morning)

205072


Weight keeps dropping, so it seems ill be increasing my calories come next week.
Looking forward to that!

Activity:
(Caloric expenditure measured by my FitBit Blaze that I wear all day and night)

Monday - Rest
Tuesday - Chest, Shoulders, Triceps and Core
Wednesday - Legs
Thursday - Back, Biceps and Core
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, Quads, Glutes and Calves
Sunday - Back, Biceps, Hamstrings, Calves and Core

For cardio i do 10 minutes warm up on the cross trainer and 10 minutes cool down on the cross trainer. Also i do 2-4 ten minutes walks after meals each day.

205073


Recovery:
(Sleep measured with my Whoop that I wear all day and night)

205074
205075


Another great week of sleep.
Recovery dropped a bit even though i was Deloading.

Supplementation:
(Here i comment supplements im trying that arent part of my staple)

M-Test Week 11:
My body feel good and strength is definately on the rise. I got a bunch of M-Test in the cupboard and I dont see any reason to cycle off it. From what ive read, many use it year round.

Weekly report:
I had a big week with lots of stuff happening that made it a eventful week to say the least!

- I had a deload (ok, maybe not that exciting)
- I switched from a 6 a week workout program to a 5 a week workout program
- I joined a new gym with incredible equipment
- I got my first tattoo

From what i can see with not having a weekly refeed, my body needs more overall calories to grow. So I will add more food to my diet come next week. I will contiune carb cycling and probably just add more of what im already eating.​

First "real" workout on the new split in the new gym. Got to try my hands on some equipment I havent used before. Everything felt really good! The dumbbell bench was heavy but I got great contact so I was happy with that. Looking forward to see how this split will treat me.

I'll let him answer for himself but he's told me that he does and I definitely do too. Epi-Plex is part of my year round supplement regimen bc it has so many potential benefits in and out of the gym.

Epi-Plex to me helps me recover, reduces inflammation and improves stamina on its own. When stacked with Anabolic Effect my thoughts are that the inherent Myostatin Inhibition (that isnt something i can feel) will improve the effect of Anabolic Effect.

Im not on Anabolic Effect right now though, im in between runs. But Epi-Plex is something ive started using as a staple, same as GlycoPhase because of its health and performance benefits.

What an awesome workout! Ive never done vertical leg press before and that really tore up my hamstrings. Iits been like 15 years since i used a real hack squat as well so I think this new gym can help me pack on some serious size on my legs again!

OK so if I understand correctly you did not run Epi-Plex and Anabolic edge at the same time. I am on my 3 bottles of a 6 bottles run of anabolic edge and I was wondering if I could feel a difference by adding epi-plex to my run. Thank you for your time.

No I did run Epi-Plex together with my last run of Anabolic Effect and it treated me great! I logged everything so you can just read this log for all the details. But in short the improved recovery and stamina helped me perform better in the gym which is important to get the most out of Anabolic Effect imo.

I always get a kick out of when people spend more time flexing and taking pictures than working out haha. That's one of the reasons I train with my own setup now and don't go to a gym anymore. I may start back at some point bc I am a bit limited, but its so nice to be able to train and not get interrupted.

This workout felt good! Its still a bit weird doing upper and lower body in one workout. But I am really warm when starting legs so my ROM is just amazing on all exercises. Belt squat and Pendelum squat are still very new movments for me. But they hit legs incredibly without any strain on the lower back, whch is awesome.

upper and lower body in one workout.
One of my old workout plans had this split and it was heavy upper and light lower then vice versa the second time around in the week. I liked it for a little while but it definitely is a longer and more exhausting workout.

I've always been more the shy work out in long sleeves even when I was in my best shape type haha. Only time I ever normally work tank tops to the gym was one gym I used to go to was a hardcore basement type gym that had one window AC unit cut into a concrete wall for the entire gym and then 2 floor fans. No need for a sauna, the gym was hotter lol.

Sunday has always been and will continue to be my hardest workouts of the week. But it felt amazing! I spent like 2,5 hours in totalt with all the warm up and cool down included. Felt good and strong but i will admit that not having refeeds the evening before probably takes a couple of percentages of my performance.

@Admin im getting alot of errors trying to post my weekly update. It seems to be fine with 2 images, but when i add more i get the error:

Oops! We ran into some problems.
Oops! We ran into some problems. Please try again later. More error details may be in the browser console.


Have i exceeded some kind of image amount in one thread or from one user?

EDIT: Ok so its not images, its some kind of barrier. If you look at the post below there is no images or anything going on. But if I add another line of text it wont let me post it.

EDIT2: Ok so I could post my Monthly Report below, which is really long and has tons of pictures.
But when trying to add the following sentence at the end, it wouldnt let me post it:


Every other week I will see if there is any reason to make any changes and work from there.
IF i keep having these "no weekend feeling" then I might add a 500 KCAL snack on Saturday to soothe my mind. But as of now I wont do that.​

MONTHLY REPORT MAY 2021

Its time for my second monthly report from Whoop.
This month ive intentionally not had any cheats to refeeds to see how that affects my performance and recovery.

205341


205342


+5% sleep performance is awesome to see.
Midways thru May i changed my training split and instead of only Mondays off i also got Fridays off. This you can clearly see in the data as I got several extra hours of sleep each week. Absolutely a good decision on my part.

205343


As i mentioned last month, STRAIN is cardivascular exertion and weightlifting rarely gives people a high STRAIN. But as you can see I have 2 darker spots which are on Sundays which tend to be my hardest workouts of the week.

205344


Here we go! So no RED Days in all of May. Thats awesome stuff! As you can see most of my RED Days in April was on Sundays which are the days after my refeeds. No that i didnt do them, recovery was much better.

205345


So Sleep Performance seems to have gotten better and better by each week in May. As you can see its usually the middle of the week when i have 3 days in a row where i get up at 5am that drags it down. But im VERY happy to see this improvment.

205346


Ok so this is the JOURNAL part.
Every morning I get asked a bunch of questions and by sheer data collection over time, the WHOOP gives me feedback on the different behaviours.

BLUE-LIGHT BLOCKING GLASSES - These seem to be the real deal. Im thinking about upgrading to some that also blocks GREEN light for even better sleep.

SEX - Well ****.. this is probably because it always happens at night and destroys my sleep.

LATE MEAL - This is what ive logged as my refeeds. There were none of these this month so this is data from last month.

205347


Small improvement in HRV ADAPTION which means im getting fitter!

205349


So no refeeds on my current diet had major impact on my bodyweight, down 2,3kg.
According to my scale I dropped muscle mass but yeah, that didnt happen haha.

205350
205351


PLANS FOR JUNE


Ok so now we've seen how a month with no refeeds affect my recovery and performance and to be honest, its a lot.
I have not had any problems dropping it from a physical stand point. But I must admit, one of the things that made my weekends FEEL like weekend was the extra food.
Its maybe silly to give food such power, but im being dead serious that on some Saturdays as I closed shop and got home the evening felt no different than a week day. This is a big deal for me as I work 6 days a week, i WANT my weekends to feel like time off.
I will have to see if this continues and if I have to do something about it.

What I will do is increase my daily calories as I AM doing a lean bulk not a cut haha.
I will continue to carb cycle and my plan is as follows.

MONDAY - 2950 KCAL
TUESDAY - 3350 KCAL
WEDNESDAY - 3500 KCAL
THURSDAY - 3350 KCAL
FRIDAY - 2950 KCAL
SATURDAY - 3500 KCAL
SUNDAY - 3500 KCAL​

Ive been doing them for maybe 5-6 months now and it really has helped with core stability on heavier lifts. Absolutely recommend doing them!

I remember Rich Piana was a big motivator for vacuums. I need to start doing them again as well.

Yeah he was very into it for aesthetical reason, he thought that doing them every day would shrink your waist. I dont know about that, but training the transverse abdominis is really important. You can also do it by training planks and roll outs (as i also do). Buuut most people dont haha.

Agreed! I need to start factoring in planks but they're the last exercise on my mind when doing core :/

I do that all the time. I get worked up on some project or topic and it turns out going well or being no big deal. :ROFLMAO:

Im usually very good at compartmentalize stuff, but this time i had a hard time.
Whats REALLY interesting is that my Whoop picked up on it and when i got up this morning it showed me a REALLY low recovery score. Im thinking the stress actually put serious strain on my system without me really picking up on it. So even with 100% performance score on my sleep, my recovery was tanked.

Tried a new leg press today from HOIST and that thing hit my quads perfectly! Id even say it was better for me than the belt squat. Very impressed and will absolutely continue using that one.

Unfortunately the french press might have to go, i love the exercise but its the ONLY exercise that gives me elbow pain, so ill have to find something else.

Sunday’s are my fun days so these workouts are long and amazing.

Did a scoop of Ryse Blackout as my pre and it has much more caffeine than I’m used too. Workout felt great but my Whoop told me I had an elevated Strain the entire workout. Which comes from an elevated heart rate, which I’m thinking is from the extra caffeine.

I liked the pre but I know it’s nothing special to the crowd here. But in Sweden rules are pretty strict on ingredients so most PWOs unfortunately end up looking fairly basic.

Weight is up 0,1kg which is perfect. I will do a bi weekly review of the progress and make potential changes then.
Whats really cool is that my scale finally has realized that i am leaner than its shown haha. So now it shows me below 10% bodyfat.
