    Notes: Turns out I came down with a quick stomach bug yesterday and today. Probably why I was feeling bloated and upset yesterday during my workout. Didn't go into work yesterday, tried to go in today and left early when my meetings got cancelled. Something has been going through my office for a couple of weeks and I think someone didn't wash their hands and I picked it up somehow.

    Day6: March 14, 2007
    ME Lower A

    ATG Squats:
    135x10 (warmup) - 205x8 - 225x8 - 245x6

    Hack Squats:
    170x10 - 180x10 - 185x10

    Iso Leg Curls:

    Seated Calf Raises:
    160x12 - 160x12 - 160x12



    Notes: Weight was 205.4. Went a little light today because I wasn't sure if my stomach was completely healed. Numbers were still pretty good for me. Pumps were good as usual and tingling in the face was felt again. I think this is just a hit and miss thing with me. Some days I feel it, others I don't. Regardless, energy was still up and pumps were good.

    Day7: March 15, 2007
    RE Upper

    DB Bench Press:
    50sx10 (warmup) - 80sx8 - 85sx8 - 90sx8 - 95sx8

    Pull-ups:
    BWx11 - BWx7 - BWx6

    DB Shoulder Press:
    45sx8 - 50sx8 - 50sx8

    CG Seated Rows:
    120x10 - 130x10 - 130x10

    Machine Rear Delt Flys:
    100x10 - 115x10 - 115x10

    EZ Standing Curls:
    85x8 - 90x8 - 90x6

    Triangle Press:
    60x16 - 60x10 - 60x10



    Notes: Weight was 205.2. Good workout today. Gonna crush the 100's on DB Press in no time, and might be able to nail 110's before this log is over if I'm smart about the way I up my weight and manage my reps. Pumps are amazing as usual. Bathroom breaks were minimized to 1 today, despite several refills of the water bottle. Anyone keeping track of this can assume that I am hitting a minimum of 2 gallons a day. Love RE Upper day because my chest swells up. Lasts for most of the day too. Started to add in the rear delt flyes because I think my front delts are starting to grow quicker than the rear and I want to isolate the rear for some added development. My shoulders roll forward naturally (slouched a lot as a child and still hunch over when I'm on the computer all day at work), so a little rear shoulder work is needed regardless of development, IMO.

    Day8: March 16, 2007
    ME Lower B

    Deadlift:
    155x10 (warmup) - 205x8 - 245x8 - 255x4

    Leg Press:
    360x10 - 380x10 - 400x10 *PR

    Iso Leg Extensions:
    55x8/8 - 60x8/8 - 60x8/8

    Standing Calf Raises:
    160x12 - 160x12 - 160x12



    Notes: Weight was 205.8. Deadlifts, FTW!!! Another one of my favorite lifts. Changed the way I bang out the reps today. Warmups were continuous, controlled reps. The working sets were much different: power up, controlled down to the floor, release the bar, stand up straight, then squat back down into position, repeat. These sets were long, but man did I feel a difference. Each rep was hit with as much explosion as I could muster. Energy was great today because even after all of those sets, I still managed to do a full Lower B day. I initially thought I would be dead after the deads (no pun intended). Even cranked out a new PR on the Leg Press. Four hundred isn't much for most people, but I've got chicken legs, and don't care if you think it's weak. Calf raises were fun too. Each rep was a slow lower to fully stretch the calf, pause, explode up, hold (trying not to bounce at top), repeat. Good times. Walking to the car was a bitch after this. Still no negative sides from the White FLOOD and the tingling was back again.

    Day9: March 17, 2007
    ME Upper

    Incline DB Press:
    45sx10 (warmup) - 75sx8 - 80sx8 - 85sx8 - 90sx7

    Wide Grip Pulldowns:
    120x10 - 130x10 - 130x5

    Standing Military Press:
    100x8 - 105x8 -105x8

    Yates Rows:
    190x8 - 195x8 - 195x8

    Dips:
    BWx12 - BWx12 - BWx12



    Notes: Weight was 205.8. Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Think I might have a couple of beers with my wife tonight. First beer I'll drink this year, so a couple should be enough Good workout again today. I did forget to take a scoop of GlycerGROW with my White FLOOD before my workout. Was being rushed to hurry up and get to the gym. Pumps were still good on the White FLOOD alone. Think I did something to my wrist. The tendon that runs from the pinky finger on my right hand down to my wrist feels swollen and inflamed. Think it happened during the last set on the Yates. Even with the wrist wraps on, which sux cuz I couldn't even do the Hammer Curl burns that I usually do at the end of the workout. On a positive note, I was able to do Dips again. I've had chronic pain in my left elbow, right above the elbow (not tennis elbow, but the tendon on the opposite side) and have had problems with heavy weight. All of my tricep work for a couple of months now has been very high rep and very low weight to help it heal (plus some added bulk cissus). Today I gave the dips a shot and there was no pain. Very nice (Borat impression)!!! Time to go ice my wrist down after all this typing.

    Day10: March 20, 2007
    ME Lower A

    ATG Squats:
    155x10 (warmup) - 215x8 - 235x8 - 255x5

    Hack Squats:
    180x10 - 190x10 - 195x10

    Iso Leg Curls:
    110x8/8 - 110x8/8 - 110x8/6

    Seated Calf Raises:
    160x12 - 160x12 - 170x12



    Notes: Weight was 205.6. Pumps were good today. Went up in all my lifts except the leg curls ... left leg tired out and I could only get 6 reps out, but I think it's because I didn't rest enough between those last two sets. Calves were looking swole. I think they're actually growing, which is great for me because they've always been a "hard to grow" muscle group. Energy was up, still feeling tingling in my face. There was about an hour between my morning shake and my White FLOOD dose. Water intake is still up to 2 gallons per day.

    I hear ya. I went the other way though. My lower is large and in charge. My upper needs to pick up the slack though.

    Update: Just wanted to update the subscribers. I've been out of the gym for a few days to allow my wrist to heal. Feels pretty good today so I'll be in the gym tomorrow morning for another Upper workout.

    Day11: March 23, 2007
    ME Lower A


    DB Bench Press:
    50sx10 (warmup) - 80sx8 - 85sx8 - 95sx6

    Pull-ups:
    BWx11 - BWx5 - BWx5

    DB Shoulder Press:
    45sx8 - 50sx8 - 50sx8

    CG Seated Rows:
    120x10 - 130x10 - 130x10

    Machine Rear Delt Flys:
    115x8 - 115x8 - 115x8

    Standing 1 Arm Cable Curls:
    30x8/8 - 30x8/8 - 30x8/8

    Triangle Press:
    60x12 - 70x12 - 70x12



    Notes: Weight was 204.2. I'm dropping weight. Don't know if that's a good thing or not. My quads are starting to look a lot bigger so I'm guessing that the weight loss is fat. Wrist was feeling pretty good for most of the workout. Tried to do EZ Bar Curls, and something just didn't feel right. Switched over to the cable curls with a count of 3-2-3. Talk about swole. FLOOD was really pumping my arms with the 2 second hold at the top. Energy was great as always. Not sure if my body has adjusted or what the cause is; but urination during my workouts has dropped to once, if at all. Water intake hasn't changed. Face was tingling again today. Had energy all the way through the last rep of my workout and could have done cardio if I hadn't realized I was already late for work. That damn job always seems to get in the way. Legs and lots of yard work tomorrow and then cardio on Sunday.

    Shit, it's ALWAYS like that. Maybe you should go on welfare so you can workout all day.

    Day12: March 24, 2007
    ME Lower B

    Deadlift:
    155x10 (warmup) - 205x8 - 245x8 - 255x8 - 265x5

    Leg Press:
    380x10 - 400x10 - 420x10

    160x12 - 160x11 - 160x8

    Cardio:
    12min Treadmill @ 2.5 Resistance & 2 Incline (cooldown)


    Notes: Typo on yesterday's workout. Instead of ME Lower A, it should have read RE Upper. Weight was 204.2. Today's workout lasted about 1.75hrs. Pumps were good. No tingling in the face today. Lots energy. Recovery was good. Could really see it when I was doing Deadlifts. Did these the same way as last week where I explode up, hold, slowly lower the weight to the ground, release the bar, stand up straight, get into position and grab the bar, repeat. I'm really trying to focus my energy on the explosion up, and this method feels like my hams are getting worked to death Wrist never felt bad and I didn't have to resort to straps. Modified my Standing Calf Raises today. Lowered down into a full calf stretch and held the weight at that position for about 5-8 seconds. Exploded the weight up, without bouncing at the top and held the weight at the top position for a 2 second count before lowering the weight as slowly as possible into the full stretch. Wanted to quit around rep 5 on each of the sets. Hoping these doggies are gonna grow.

    Notes: Weight was 204.8. Overslept by about an hour this morning and had to rush through my workout. Recovery was great even with the short amount of rest time between sets. Pumps were really amazing this morning. My chest is looking huge right now and I hope this lasts for most of the day. Something for the ladies to admire Everything was on point and still no negative sides to report. Wrist started acting up on the Hammer Curls, so I cut that short and headed home. All in all, a great workout today. Late for work so gots ta go.
