  3. Sorry it’s been awhile guys life has been going 5000000x per hour. Finished up my blast and didn’t detail it like I wished I would have. Seriously just had too much going on. I really loved the new compounds Anadrol is most definitely a favorite. The strength was immense on it. Weekly progression through lifts never seemed to stop. Water retention was terrible either and I will absolutely use it my next cycle. Probably going to just be test and anadrol. The tren was giving me extreme anxiety so that’s a compound I’ve scratched off of my list. I’m a weekend warrior I really don’t NEED to run tren like I was if ever at that again unless I decide to compete some day down the road.

    Starting weight I believe was about 200lbs give or take. Too morning weight reached 227.6 so not too bad. Never lost visibility of abs and actually stayed relatively “dry” on the anadrol. May just do a quick 8 week cruise and jump right back with a rest and anadrol blast for 8 weeks with prop. Not sure.

    Going to continue to run push pull legs split. It’s been working really well for me and here and there I’ll throw in an extra arms and shoulder day to switch things up or add some extra volume to weaker parts.

    Tonight’s workout was a push day:

    HS Incline Press
    1 heavy set of 6-8 reps
    Drop weight 20% and do 1 set AMRAP

    Decline HS Press
    1 heavy set of 6-8 reps
    Drop weight 20% and do 1 set AMRAP

    DB Press/Fly Combo
    4 sets of 8-12 reps

    HS Shoulder Press
    1 heavy set of 6-8 reps
    Drop weight 20% and do 1 set AMRAP

    DB Side Laterals
    3 sets of 10-15 reps

    V Bar Pushdowns
    Worked up to 1 heavy triple drop set

    Body Weight Dips
    —Super setted with—
    OH Rope Extensions
    3 sets to failure

    By the way thought I would add this ... @FourOneDeuxFitt, proud of you buddy. Look like you have made some awesome gains. This thread has got a lot of attention throughout the the life of it this far. I am sure it’s helped a lot of guys. I for one have a lot of respect for guys that are looking to better themselves and meso. You are a perfect example of one of those guys by sharing your experience with others. Selfless act, that you can look back on. Anyhow thought I would drop in say. WHAT UP !!!

    I forgot to add this. You aren’t alone, I hate legs too. I like my cardio now, and I find that leg days cripple me to the point to where I can’t do my AM run for like three days. Anyhow, I did legs today, and tomorrow I know it’s gonna be fucking hell to get off the shitter after taking care of business. We can only grow so much up top, in order to have a solid upper body we have to remember our foundation(lower body)has to be super solid too.
     
  7. Honestly man I went through a phase where I despised legs. Then I ran a program and had a day job where I could really smash legs twice a week and my legs got very strong and it was actually a bit more “fun” if I’d have to say to train them when I am doing movements with nice weight on my back and etc... now I have my own company and when 95% of my jobs are tile or painting it’s hard to be on a ladder or my knees all day with some bad ass DOMS. & yes it’s not that I couldn’t do it I’d say I’m just opting out of it because I don’t “have” to do it haha. I’m working on finding ways to make it more enjoyable again

  8. Thanks man. I’ve definitely grown a lot not just physically but mentally throughout this process. I know I have a lot of silent followers that’s why I keep the thread going. I have a few regulars that stop through then people like yourself who skim through and chime in too which I’m all for. The length this thread has been running I’ve definitely added a solid 20+lbs of lean tissue in the last two years so I’m not complaining. Slowly but surely still just messing around with combos. I’m at the point now where I know what’s what’s so I can utilize the compounds more and use less. Been a lot of trial and error but that’s also the name of the game. Thanks for following along it’s always nice to have someone stop through and say wassup!!!

    Couldn't agree more on the drol. As I mentioned in my log I am loving this compound as well. I am having very little sides from it, increasing strength and size quite nicely on it. It will definately be in play on my future cycles as well.

    My biceps were hit by the time I actually did some isolation work to them. Quality control and contractions for those two movements. Everything felt great this week. Body is tired so tomorrow will be an off day for me.
     
  14. Legs are finally not sore from Friday. Rest day yesterday did me well. Only thing that’s still a bit tender is the site from my weekly injection which was also done on Friday. I went a bit lower and more outside than usual on my glute and man it feels like the first time I ever pinned myself all over again hahaha. Every once in a while this happens and it sucks.

    Also, I’m about 3 weeks now off of blast. Weight dropped slightly but I can see a considerable change in bf% in this short period of time as well. It’s crazy to watch how your body adapts and changes to different things (nutrition, training, more or less rest, more or less volume). The body does some amazing things and it’s crazy to understand what we CAN truly be capable of if we push ourself and stay consistent and disciplined.

    What’s still a bit crazy to me to finish this post off is that over these last 3 weeks and still continuing are increases in strength week to week still whether it be with more weight or reps that hasn’t stalled yet either. So for now planning to just stick with lower volume and high intensity. Progressive overload training and keeping a log has truly worked wonders for me.

    Current AAS:
    200mg/wk Test C
    (Going to stick with this for the next 8-10 weeks before another 8wk blast will be completed & consist of Test325 blend, NPP, and Anadrol)

    Splitting hamstrings and quads is something new for me. I like it though the first rotation I’ve been through. I most definitely have been neglecting legs and it shows for real. I feel like a bitch in the gym with the numbers I’m putting up at the moment compared to what I’m used to. Slowly but surely it’s climbing back up just have to keep grinding as usual to get to where I wanna be and continue to progress.

    Maybe I missed it but what program exactly are you running? Sets and reps look a good bit different than norm. Also, how are you liking the 9 day split. I always confuse and contradict myself trying to run a normal 7 day split... Not sure what it is lol

  19. I’m not running any specific written program from anyone. Just picked exercises that I enjoy and ones that I don’t enjoy to improve on. I focus on progressive overload so my goal is to either add a rep or weight each week to my compound movements. For my first movement I always warm up pretty good. Normally use some bands for a little bit then get 2-3 moderate warm up sets around 12-15 reps before going for my top set. For the top set I aim for 5-8 reps. If I hit 8 depending on how smooth it is I will add weight the following week. If I miss 8 I continue with the same weight the following week. Also, depending on how the top set feels I may use the same weight to aim for another set of 5-8 or decrease the weight by 20% and do AMRAP. I split legs up also and normally pick 2 compounds and 1-2 accessory movements to follow and hit calves on both leg days. So there’s about 8 movements for legs. For my push days chest normally has 2 compound and some fly or dB press/fly combo movement that follows. Two tricep and one shoulder movement. The next push day is more focused on shoulders and triceps so I’ll do a overhead press, weighted dips, and close grip bench. Rotate the order over the weeks. Then one compound for chest and a fly movement and that’s it for push. Pull days vary on how I feel honestly. I just try to use different compounds on each day focusing on a vertical one day and a heavy row on the other for the first movements and go from there. Every so often I’ll start with deadlift or rack pulls but normally they are added in later in the mix. Normally 4 movements for back. One for rear delts and two for biceps. That’s about it man I hope that made sense I just got off work and eating as I’m writing this. Been a busy week I’ve been off of here for a little while.

    Edit: my top set is taken to absolute failure. I’m fortunate to have a workout partner so what I’m talking about is I’m pushing until I’m shaking and stuck in the middle of the rep and getting help from him to finish my last rep. My workouts are about 45min I get in there hit it fucking hard and go eat.
     
  20. Alright guys. Been a busy week for me but I’m back. Hope everyone is doing well. Didn’t have much time to hit the gym over the last week because of life showing up the way it happened to but. It is what it is.
