Creeping Death Week 10, Session 6 (Legs):

Cardio Work:

  • 30 minutes outdoor cycle
  • 3,000M row
Legs Session:
  • Lying leg curl 3 x 15
  • Frog squat 3 x 8
  • Bulgarian split squat drop set of death x 4
  • DB SLDL 2 x 8
  • Seated calf raise 6 x 15
That concludes CD V2 for me. My verdict - Some enjoyable sessions, some great pumps, exposed me to some movements and techniques I wouldn't usually use. Overall, good learning curve. My personal preference lends to slightly lower volume nowadays, which I'll switch back to going forward.

Regarding the new split, I might get some hate for this, but I’m thinking of going down the traditional ‘bro split’ route for a little while. I’ve used 6 days a week PPL variations for almost a year straight now, hitting every muscle group twice a week. I think it’ll be a nice change for me to drop to once a week with a dedicated arm day for a little while. It’s worked for me in the past and I’ve had fun doing it.

Going to cook some fajitas and have a chilled one this evening. Tired again!

31st July

Cardio:

  • 30 minutes bike
  • 30 minutes incline treadmill 130BPM
Back:
  • Wide grip pull-up 3 x 6-8 (Top set +85lbs DB)
  • Bent over barbell row 3 x 6-8 (Top sets 140KG)
  • Iliac pull-down 3 x 8-12 (Top sets with stack)
  • Straight arm push-down (single arm) 3 x 8-12
  • Barbell shrug 1 x 15, 1 x 12, 2 x 8
Feeling good. ☺️

As much as I enjoy rowing, incline treadmill might be the safest bet longterm as it’s very low impact for me. My biceps and shoulders felt delicate during 5KM rows and it seems silly to risk even a niggle if I can avoid it and reach desired HR with the treadmill.

Cardio
:
  • 10 x 200M row
Shoulders:
  • Seated DB press 3 x 6-8 (Top set 115lbs DB’s)
  • Lateral DB raise 3 x 10 partials with heavy weight + 3 x 10 with lighter weight

Trained with a mate so took our time and had a spot for the pressing which was nice. Pressed for time so not tons of sets but the sets we did were all effective.

1 month 'til I go on holiday now. Dosing MT2 at 200mcg EOD and already seeing visible results so will continue at that dose for now. I've only been running Test for the last couple of weeks. Will probably put a bit of either Turinabol or Anavar back in before I go briefly and will cruise afterwards for a good 8-10 weeks. Been enjoying training a single muscle group for the last few days, feeling less fatigue overall.

So with your new split, youre doing a dedicated chest day?
So as per your last update, that leaves a dedicated arm day as well, based off of a 6 day a week program... so im guessing 2 leg days?

Just one leg day per week should be enough for me. I'll train legs tonight. I'll try to get 2 rest days, maybe one sometimes. So I'll hit everything once over a 6-7 day period.

Done. Neither of us could be bothered training but we were both glad we got it done. Could’ve easily grabbed a caffeine drink to perk myself up but I’m avoiding it in the evening if I can help it to help with my sleep quality.

Good work man, and getting it done without the caffeine in the evening. That sleep quality is crucial.

Man your journal here is awesome. I wish you'd put some of the weights you're working with more often though. As a smaller dude, it helps me see where I'm gonna have to work up to in order to get the physique I want.

I saw you were doing weighted dips with 145, and I was like damn holy shit I have a ways to go... Lol.

Keep it up, you're an inspiration man.

Thank you. I will start to include some more of the weights for my compound lifts now I’ll be back into a steady routine. Yeah I’m pretty good with dips. My top working sets have been 150lbs. The top DBs in my gym are 175’s so hopefully I can work up to them soon. Would be a nice flex.

Got some DOMS in my arms today, first time in ages. I would’ve liked a rest day today but my mate missed Chest this week and wants to train it tonight so I’m going to get in anyway and see how it goes. Friday I’ll take as a rest day and Saturday I’m on the spa break with my Mrs there so it’ll either be a full rest day or something fairly low impact if there’s an on-site gym on the resort. Quick pic of current leg cuts and the colour from the MT2 is creeping in.

True or false? Did you fluff up the meat hammer before this pic?

Quick general update:

Gear has been at 300mg Test E for 2.5 weeks now. I dropped other compounds as I have a Doctor’s appointment coming up and will have bloods taken and wanted to make sure I could get all of my markers in range. My BP had gone up by a few points too and I wanted to fix that. Sitting comfortably in range now which is good.

Mentally I feel good, mood and libido are in a good place. Still have the occasional low day but I think that’s more mental than hormone related.

Training is going well. I’m enjoying hitting each muscle group once a week right now. My body is benefitting from it. Whether I’ll prefer it longterm I’m not sure, but after hitting each muscle group twice a week for almost a year, it’s been a good change.

Diet has been acceptable in that I’m meeting my calorie and protein goal but I am prone to eating 5-600 calories worth of ‘junk’ in the evening. It fits within my calorie goal so I’m not undoing progress but I know it’s not optimal for me as it can upset my stomach. That’s something I need to work on but I just enjoy Fizzy Fish and Aero caramel so it’s difficult.

Still managing to maintain a good mix of being dry and full. Forgot to post this one, it’s from the same day as the previous picture so don’t worry, I have changed underwear since. Shows I’m still fairly dry around the midsection but still have decent fullness/vascularity in legs.

And here’s a comparison from a few years ago. Keep in mind the picture on the left I’d have been on Test, high Tren and a strong oral like Superdrol/Anadrol and yet I’m holding similar amounts of tissue on much less now.
