Over the last couple months my core lifts have leveled off or even lost some strength and I haven't been able to figure out why, I've never tried a supplement like this before and decided it might be what I need to get me out of these ruts on back on the road to becoming an ogre.
Height: 5 11
BF: ~18% est.
Current 5RM maxes
Deadlift: 265, Squat: 205, Bench: 205, Mil. Press: 145 Pendlay Row: 150
My training: Working each core muscle group 2x a week, mainly in the 6-10 rep range, 2 diff core exercises per muscle group per workout(ie chest day: flat bench and incline bench) with a few isolation workouts once a week. Squats and deadlifts will be kept lower in reps and focus more on pure strength.
Exercises over the next 4 weeks will include deadlifts, atg squats, flat bench, incline bench, pendlay row, military press, pull ups, deep dips, and maybe some curls here and there. Both barbells and dumbbells will be used, mainly barbells though.
My diet: I'm bulking with minimal concern on fat gain. I try to eat at least 3500 calories of the following foods each day: chicken, steak, beef, fish, oats, fruits, veggies, whole grain breads and maybe a bagel or two, eggs, cottage cheese, baked potatoes, nuts, natty pb, and a whole lot of 1% milk.
I pretty much stick to these foods and no junk, eating meals every 2-3 hours.
Over the next 4 weeks I will try my best to not drink/smoke anything. I'm 20 yrs old though so no promises there...
My goals: Gain 8 lbs of muscle, probably 12-14lbs overall, and set new PRs on ALL of my lifts.
Animal Pak vitamins(willl be switching to Orange Triad shortly)
Whey and Cytogainer when needed
Today is Day 1: Got the Activate Extreme at about 1:30 pm and immediately had my first serving. Today is on off day also...
Wish me luck...
ANY suggestions on diet, training routines, other supps, or anything are more than greatly appreciated.
