    SweetBlasph3my's Update

    Well after working out really hard for a good consistent 5 weeks here is were I'm at and what I have learned:

    Pre-workout supplements really do work and help. Currently using Jack3d. I was doing a 5 day split routine when I started and was having a hard time finishing the whole work out. Each day was about 5 different lifts at 4 sets of 9 reps... I wasn't having issues so much with muscle fatigue and finishing things just after about half an hour or so I would either loose interest or just be too tired to continue and didn't have enough to fight through and finish the whole workout. So two weeks into my 5 week plan I decided to give it a try. Gotta say I like the stuff and energy while at the gym isn't a problem anymore.

    I learned that I need to pace myself when I'm doing longer sets. Just because I could press 100 pounds didn't mean that I should do 100 pounds on set and then have to keep going lower and lower. I much prefer a nice consistent work out, and in the past was a 3 x 10 guy but was hoping for better results with 4 x 9.

    The fourth set sucks no matter what

    I was hoping to do a sixth week but my forearm (bone like) had already been hurting when doing barbell bicep curls, and then on Monday my shoulder popped weird so I stopped to recover this week.

    I didn't drop much weight, so the big thing my next 5 week cycle is going to include a good 20-30 minute jog/run before lifting and at least 10 min after the lifting. I gotta go back to counting the calories as well, I was a bit to liberal with well I worked out today, eating.

    Or also beer is the devil it shouldn't be so good and so bad at the same time.

    So Goals for next 5 week cycle:
    Don't miss a work out
    Drop 5 pounds
    Log your calories
    Don't overwork yourself and hurt yourself.

    You may run into the same issue I have; barbell curls don't fit my anatomy. No matter what I've done, I cannot do multiple sets of barbell curls without that same forearm pain. I've since switched to dumbbells without any issues.

    What flavor of Jack3d are you taking? Watermelon was by far my favorite.

    now that you mention it I've never had a problem with them but I normally only do dumbells. Lol thank god you pointed that out, probably just saved myself some pain in the future.

    I'm doing the fruit punch. It's very tasty I'm shocked just about every morning when I make it and taste it and it isn't red.

    I"m attempting to update this once a week...

    But all I gotta say is logging calories, (using myfitnesspal) is a pain and I forget that I'm "doing that" all the time. But I am watching how much crap I eat.

    And also I hate doing ab work.

    Make sure you log the food. It will help you find trouble spots.

    Thanks guys for the kick in the butt for logging calories going strong so far!

    Also I'm very happy to announce that today at the gym I kicked butt at my squats and are getting closer to where I used to be. I did 4 sets of 10-12 reps today the first one 185 and all the rest at 205

    Try wrapping your forearm , it works for me until I get warmed up and then I'm good to go.
