    Humalog.. was this a really bad idea?

    so today was leg day and i decided to try something new.

    ive been using insulin for a week now, so im basically an expert



    anyways, i used Mike arnold's pre-workout humalog protocol.. and decided to try something new. So i shot 15IU humalog pre workout and drank the first shake immediately, started lifting a half hour later, then drank the second shake an hour after the first.



    then after that, i shot 10IU more humalog.. yes, peri-workout humalog.. half hour after the second shake.. I experiened even more wicked pumps, more endurance and strength, energy etc..


    drank the final shake 2 hours after the first as per the protocol, and am just chillin with my glucose tabs as my post workout meal is warming up (1 hour after the last shake was consumed).


    so it went like this

    30 minutes preworkout - pin 15IU humalog then drink first drink immediately
    1 hour later - drink second drink
    30 minutes later pin 10 more humalog
    30 minutes later drink last drink
    1 hour later eat 7 oz beef liver and 1 cup white rice (cooked measure)



    was this a bad idea? i kinda wanted to see how close to/how many times i would go hypo and die, but nothing bad happened :/


    everyone tells me that ill die if i pin Pre-workout insulin, so i figured what kind of SD would i be if i didnt do pre + peri insulin..



    anyways, if it was a bad idea i won't do it again.. Thoughts?

    my fasted blood glucose yesterday morning was 68 btw

    right? i figured my shit would be spiked in a similar fashion as it would have been had i used humulin R.. idk, just seemed like a good idea at the time.. because i trained for 2 hours



    post workout meal down the hatch.. man beef liver + brewer's yeast + white rice never gets old.. only problem is.. is it goes so fast


    i can see how people get hella fat off insulin.. im hungry 24/7



    FWIW, my glucose tabs are never out of arm's reach after during my insulin "window"

    then again, there are guy's who use humulin R 3x a day 2-4 times a week... for months without using metformin for anything like that. Im only going to use this shit 4 weeks on 4 weeks off just to be "safe"


    i know i had enough carbs and protein to "cover" the slin.. I definitely would like some input from those who know more about this know.. AKA Mike Arnold. So im just gunna keep bumping this thread into eternity

    holy shit 33 is low. lol

    and i wonder what type of multiple day dosing someone of ronnie's size is using.total daily iu dose and what not. like 15iux3/day or more.

    At 15iu pre-workout I have to remind myself that I still need off days even though I'm not sore. I was thinking of doing maybe 5 iu upon waking to get the day off to a good start lol.
    Everything I say is for entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously.

    just had ~25g isolate + 5g leucine (didnt feel like having carbs).. about 15 minutes ago. Feeling better already, blood glucose is 56.


    i strongly believe that with good pre-peri-post workout nutrition + insulin + foam rolling immediately post training, you will be able to train each muscle far more often


    im going to start training 7 days a week while using slin. 2 of those days will be to focus on bringing up my lagging parts...IE calves and forearms. I only got 4 weeks on this shit so i might as well make the most of it right?

    I usually lift in the late afternoon so loading up with pre and post insulin has never been a really good option. I did take a week off and hit the gym in the am. And I split my pre workout dose to half before and half after. And I bumped it every day. It was too short of a time to see anything major.
    I have never put in the fat that alot of guys say they do. At 5 iu every morning and upto 18-20 "r" I never got chubby. I also don't stay on for more then 6-8weeks though.
    just keep that blood sugar monitor close and you'll be ok.

    good call, so you dont think that my Pre + Peri humalog (25iu total for funzies) was too out of the ordinary?


    it's pretty crazy how hypo creeped up on me like that.. it had been 3 hours since i pinned last, and had a protein + karbolyn shake and protein + carb meal since.. figured id be in the clear by that point (though i doubt i was in any real danger.. probably could have just waited it out?)


    this is a lesson to us all

    How's your prep going SD? Last I saw, you were peeled! Hey, Shelby is doing the Masters Nationals? I heard he was but wasn't sure what age group he's shooting for. I'll be aiming for that same show!! Hope you're doing well bro

    Obviously, it was fine. The timing and qauntities of your shakes and whole food was enough to maintain blood sugar adequately, without experiencing any noticable drop. Sounds about perfect to me.

    well that's a relief! ok folks now that i have Mike Arnold's input i dont need anyone else's.. still this thread may be a useful read to anyone who is considering humalog or slin in general so they can see how "un"dangerous insulin is.

    That's too low. Now you know that, next time you need to consume a greater amount of food or consume it sooner...or both. You should always give yourself a little breathing room. There is no sense in pushing things to the limit. Otherwise, if something goes wrong, such as an abrupt and severe case of the stomach flue or food poinsoning, which prevented you from holding anything down, you could be in trouble.

    indeed, i think im going to stick with 10iu pre, 10iu peri ("peri" in this case meaning towards the very end of my sessions on big muscle groups) from now on instead of what i did tonight

    Dude ive seen patients in the ER in coma and nearly dead at 25. It happens fast and sometimes they are unable to get the glucose or carbs in before they go unconcious. One minute they are fine next thing they know they are coming to in the hospital.

    Yep...it happens. This is why there is no need to push things to the limit. Blood sugar should never fall below 60'ish, ideally....50 at the lowest. If it gets lower than that, the person is pushing it too close.

    im definitely keeping my glucose tabs on hand at all times.. keeping better tabs on my BG with my glucometer from here on out too.


    gunna limit myself to Mike Arnold's protocol for smaller parts and do the 10/10 pre-peri on big days methinks. I love experimenting! can't wait to combine with this gearz

    this is a lesson to us all
    the dose that you can take is good as long as you can control your blood sugar. I would advise against ever waiting it out.

    what is really wild and really hard to describe is the effect of low blood sugar on your brain. It's kinda like taking drugs... Salvia and nitrous come to mind. It comes really fast, confusion just gets worse until you do something about it. Thankfully I will sweat through my clothes before that happens so I have a good tell.

    Once you get over 20 ius, I would slow down my ramp up...

    all this talk of insulin is making me want to get back in the old horse...

    im grateful to this old horse because it's going to allow me to drastically reduce my cycle size and duration which will benefit my health greatly in the long run.


    my hands were seriously barely shaking at 33BG, i was sweating a little bit too, just a little, which is why i was so surprised at the reading. I wasn't confused at all, just really hungry

    Bee careful sd... anything under 40 is considered coma.... I've clocked mine at 24 after getting tazed (long story), but it's really not something to push fate with.... the gains and pumps are great, but they can come with a cost....
