Get Shredded!
Time to get big and ugly.

Last "off season" I did a lot of experimenting and tried quite a few new things. Had some success and some failures but it set me up to really push in the right direction now.

I stayed relatively lean when I was growing before and plan to do so again until, I hit the wall then, we get chubbers.

Will be running EP oils and orals from Uncle Z for this go.

A couple weeks back I switched from short esters to long and the doses are -
200mg test e EOD(was going to use sust but switched)
120mg Deca eod
50mg tren hex eod

3iu gh ed
50mg Proviron ed

I will let this run for a few weeks then switch to a trt dose of test with some trestalone thrown in for good measure.

Will be focusing back on the log book using FT since I did let it slip away at the end of my cut since strength was fading a bit. Not a good thing for me to do back then but, I did and it's more learned.

Diet -

Non training days will be trace carbs higher protein and fats

Training days will be moderate carbs higher protein moderate fats.

Cardio -

No.

Holding a ton of water right now from eating whatever I wanted since Thursday. Tons of Thanksgiving day food and desserts. Pizza. Fried chicken. Lots of ice cream. Donuts and kolaches. Diet began today so the water should be gone in a few days.

Haven't trained since Wednesday since I needed a break and it's been nice. Tomorrow I'm back in the gym though.

That's about it to kick things off. Starting pics from the day before Thanksgiving.

Training today upper loading.

I removed lower pump from my upper loading days quite a while back since I wasn't recovering properly and, I was having the cramping issues. Will keep it out for a little while and revisit when I stall. I adjust for this by going up Tier in lower body only on my lower loading days.

Yates Row - 315*11, 365*7 drop set of dead stop rows to failure 135*14

Close grip Underhand pull down - 18*9, drop 10*9 long stretch followed by 45 seconds loaded stretch

Bb bench - 275 *7, 295*5 drop 225*6, 135*10, stretch pushup position for 45 second loaded stretch

DB Shoulder Press 2 count pause in stretch - 75*11, 75*8, 45 seconds loaded stretch

I've been dealing with a right wrist issue for about six weeks now. It bothers me quite a bit on free weight pressing which is part of the low numbers on flat bench and DB. The other part is I just haven't focused on those recently due to the injury. Will keep an eye on it.

Off day today. So that means no carbs, a nap or two if I can squeeze them in and not much else.

Chest is sore from doing bench again so that's a nice surprise. Rest of the body feels fine but the wrist is pissed off. It'll live.

Dropped a few more lbs of water from my bone head feasting for three days since yesterday morning. Couple more to come off which might be gone after today so I don't look like a water buffalo.

That's about it. Let's make today a good day!

Lying leg curl - 130*11 drop 90*fail

Calf Raise - 260*12, 11, 11,9

Upper pump after.

Wiped out. Stronger then expected but still pretty low numbers overall. Couple more weeks and we'll be back in the heavy weights.

Off today. The stairs are my enemy atm.....

Hack Squats are a love hate thing with me.... Nothing torches my quads when loading like hacks but damn are they rough on my knees. Between my quads and hamstrings being sore and my knees being achey I'm hobbling a tad bit today.

Got some shopping to do today since work has slowed down a tad and, hopefully I'll start to be able to get my regular naps in again. Last growing season I was able to get those in regularly every day after training almost and I believe they're a big reason why I did grow so much compared to the past.

I'm still "softening" a bit as the long ester stuff comes into play and the dryness of the short esters and minimal food go away but, very very full and round, feel ten times better and have a much more energy overall.

Hit a different grocery store today in hopes of finding red meat on sale.

The 93/7 I picked up yday (only 2lbs) was $4.95 a lb so I didn't get too much. What do we find today? NY Strip for $4.47lb. Yup yup! 5lbs please!

Get Shredded!
Got called in unexpected to work last night and didn't get off until about 6 this morning.

Kept getting woke up every hour from about 9am on so I'm pretty drained. Wife decided to rearrange the house....... I still love her.

Was scheduled to be a lower muscle round day but, between the total lack of energy and the fact that my quads are still sore, I'll push it back to tomorrow. Little extra rest never hurt anyone

Meals so far...... Not great but I'm just eating and laying back down

1-
500g egg whites
25g whey
48g natural pb

2 -
280g pork loin (made this for the family yesterday before work)
1c broccoli

3-
280g chicken breast
60g almonds

Guess I have never listed what OTC supps I take..... It's a pretty short list I guess.

1g fish oil 3x day
800mg ALC 3x day
1.9g CLA 3x day
1 multi vitamin serving AM and PM
1 Primal Defense 3x Day
500mg NAC AM and PM
250mg Magnesium AM and PM
10mg Melatonin PM

That's it as far as general health.

Pre/intra workout stuff since I just added an intra

Pre workout -
1 scoop Stimul8 Muscle
2 Scoops Stimul8 Pump
5g creatine

Intra - This will get bigger and things added when the time comes

25g HBCD'S
10g EAA'S
5g Leucine
5g Creatine
3g Citrulline
1 scoop BCAA'S (Basically just for flavoring)

That's it.

I usually don't use ALC/CLA but I've got two bottles of it I've had forever so I figured I would put it in.

The magnesium I'm taking since that's what I was lacking when I was having all my cramping issues and it's worked perfectly.

Primal Defense is my pre/pro biotoc wonder supp. I was using Grazed as well but having them both in there was a bit much. Also I typically have at least 5g of glutamine in there somewhere but haven't picked any up. I use it for its positive effects on the GI.

Off today.

Holding a fuck ton of water for some reason... Not really sure why though...

Nothing has been off diet wise.

Drugs are still the same.

Training is still where it needs to be.

No GI distress.

Sleep was good and even got a long nap today.

Only thing that's changed recently was adding in the intra but, I adjusted meals so I'm not taking in much more calorie wise and, switched to these black tops from Giant to test igf..... I don't hold water from gh though so unless it's just this brand, which it might be, that's all I can think of.

Scale is sitting at the same weight as Sunday - 238lbs so, maybe just in my head a bit.

Trained my boy this afternoon. Haven't been able to get in the garage with him lately so today we did some max effort did and I'm impressed.

85*8,8
95*3
115*2
125*1
135*1
145*1 (max. Might have had 5 more lbs)

Followed with stability work and pause reps. 4 second negative, 2 count pause -
95*5, 3
45*12 resistance added by me lightly pressing bar down

Squat -
45*12, 12
95*8, 8
135*5
165*3
185*1
205*1
215*1
220*fail

Followed with
135 - 3 sets of 5 with ten deep breaths between each set and one all out set of 12.

Kid is doing work!
