5/3/1 SHOULDERS

5/3/1

I will not be doing a backlog of the previous days because I had only just started tracking progress online about a month ago so everything prior to that was paper tracked and I’ve already trashed it! This is my third month of a full 5/3/1 rotation (hence cycle = 3). The PR page will be updated with 5/3/1 specific PRs. Keep an eye on this… since I’m relatively new to this program I’ll be hitting PRs frequently.

DAY 9: SHOULDERS

Quick and dirty. Slept in and had to see the parents for the traditional birthday dinner and I wanted to squeeze in a quick workout. Since I had taken some slight shoulder work during the last BACK exercise this workout today was short and sweet. ORIGIN about 30 minutes prior… but then I lost track of time playing Black Ops 2 on my PS3. So I took one more scoop prior to even getting into the gym. I was almost expecting some sort of stim/caffeine overdose feeling because of the relatively short period of taking the 3 scoops but this did not happen at all. The same smooth energy came and left without a crash and the focus was just as intense as ever.

DAY 43: SHOULDERS

Took 2 servings of C4 today as the preworkout. Taste was alright slightly bland but not so chalky compared to Maximize v2. I think mine was fruit punch. It apparently had 3g of Beta Alanine in that 2 serving dose and I felt the tingles slightly about 10-15 minutes after taking it but then they went away. The pumps were definitely there as was to be expected with the nitrate but it was a different feeling than agmatine or SpeedX3 pumps. Kind of like a dull, achy pump… and not one that felt like my skin was going to burst. And my muscles felt much more sore after the workout especially the delts during the scaption exercise. You’ll see that I had a hard time doing some dropset stuff just because the “sore pumps” were too much to handle and I couldn’t push on!

Today marked the last dose of SpeedX3 and it was a sad day indeed. BUT… I didn’t let that bring me down. Instead I told myself I need to go and FREAKING KILL IT in the gym today and thats exactly what I did. Took the FINAL 3 scoops 20 minutes before my workout and it must have been quite the shock to my system because all the good ol’ usual indicators returned! Sped up heart rate, beta alanine tingles, flushing, flaming hot thermogenesis, and just freaking awesome focus and drive. I could have torn down the ****ing Great Wall of China with my bare hands I was so fired up!

I ended up doing one set of rear delt fly machine negatives but the gym was a little more crowded than usual and the guy using the bitch fly machine kept hitting me with his hand so I said “****, my pumps are massive and I’m sore as ****. I’m outta dis bitch.

DAY 18: SHOULDERS

So I changed things up in the routine a bit today to keep my muscles guessing. I’ll go back to the usual stuff next time. As you guys saw from the video today, I took TWO scoops before heading to the gym. Literally as soon as the video was done I was out the door!

What I used to notice: beta alanine tingles, flushing, tachycardia, increased focus, increased drive, energy spike without crash, and ridiculous pumps.

What I notice now that I’m more than 2 weeks in: BA tingles are still present as is the flushing about 5-10 minutes after dosing. Tachycardia is present only with the first two or three sets of my first exercise and then it subsides. Intense focus. Intense drive. Smooth long lasting energy from beginning to end and beyond of workout. And the pumps… my god the glorious pumps. You’ll see! So I’ve definitely adjusted now to two scoops!

Needless to say my shoulders were cooked. Didn’t really set any PRs today… or maybe I did. I’ve always done DB overhead press and never really kept track of the barbell press so who knows. Either way I felt fantastic walking out of the gym! Those rear delt fly DOMS really crept in when I was grocery shopping afterwards. Hurt just to reach for things off the shelves! The pumps were ridiculous! And during the raises I noticed some new vascularity showing through in my front delt!
