Approved Log Echos Bulk log

@Echos I was following your log for a while, and still subbed to it.

1) 350 grams of protein what kind of food you eating? seems something lacking

2) have you checked your iron levels? been a few guys with low iron last few weeks

3) you should try to drop to 1 IU if you have issues with sides like carpel tunnel, takes time with hgh

4) you will deload? how many more weeks on this cycle.

video looks great, you're lifting on point but on the TOP squeeze the back more for a few secs
1)For protein, just chicken primarily. The eggs and turkey sausage in the AM. The yogurt adds a bit. I do a whey shake in the afternoon but that’s about it.
2) i have labs in about 2-3wks so I’ll know more then
3) I’ve gone 3d without. I took a diuretic to see if that helps with it. Last night was better but still there. And I dropped another 2lbs over night.
4) the goal is to continue until May. I’m sure I need a few deloads somewhere in there. I heard one guy suggest every 4 weeks. My problem is if I don’t schedule that in then I feel like I’m being a “skinny little bitch” to use a CBum quote. I know a more mature person would listen to their body and make changes…..

thanks for pointing out the squeeze. I was thinking about a good concentric and eccentric contraction there and totally left off a top squeeze.

@Echos 1) Id like to see actual diet if you can share it, important for us. 2) waiting on your labs please share
3) diuretic helps but you're better off with n2guard thats going to cut your water and support organs and liver
4) lets see more like a push with CBum you can get there and even look like him, push to get shredded
 
Week 4 update:

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. So, here’s what’s going on with my bulk.
1) last 2wks my weight has stagnated. I jumped from 225 to 235 in first few weeks but last 2 weeks I’ve stayed the same. So this past week I used my carbs by about 300 cal per day. So my new total cal/day is about 3500. Getting about 350g protein per day and 400g of carbs with about 67g fat. Unfortunately my weight has been about the same. Ranging from 231 to 236. So next week I’m gonna increase carbs by another 50g per day or so. I dropped the high carb day as but still doing on very low carb day on Sunday which is my active rest day.

2) Feeling a bit fatigued and sore but still recovering well enough for my next workout. To help with this I dropped RDLs and back squat. I just found they are so systemically tasking that it hindered by recovery. I may have mentioned that in the last update. I added in another set of hack squats on that day and Jackson squats. Look up Kai Green Jackson squat and you can see what they are. I do them at the very end of my workout. It looks like creepy/erotic so be careful if you do them around others. you’ll get the side eye for sure! LOL.

3) My carpel tunnel is acting up on me a bit making it hard to sleep at night. So I stopped the GH a few days ago to give myself a break. may try doing the 5-2 split that some have advocated just to give me some time to clear out any fluid retention. I really didn’t notice any improvement when I dropped from 3 IUs back down to 2 IU. Only did 3 for like 4-5 days. Anyway, I need to find a way to manage that better. I really want to keep at least 2IUs in on this cycle but I need sleep more.

4) I finally reached my peek off-season PED dose. If you recall I wanted to taper up over 4 weeks. So I’m at 600 Test, 400 NPP, 400 Primo (2-3IUs of HGH if I can stand it). For the most part been feeling good. may need to take a deload week soon but I want to keep pressing as long as I have the gas to do it. maybe I should just back off before I get to that point but I really do love training and training hard. So there’s that.

I tried to upload a video of doing some rows. maybe it’ll work. Also, people asked for pics of my meals. So there is oatmeal, blueberries and yogurt as prework out meal. Then turkey sausage and eggs along with a bagel for post workout. The other meals are chicken and rice and various fruit. Nothing exciting.

Week 5 update (early)

Okay. Here is my daily diet with what I weigh out and calories. Hope that is what you’re looking for. My diet rarely deviates from this. Maybe one day I’ll have a handful of nuts, or a few chip etc. But rarely and only limited. To be honest, this feels like a LOT of food to me so there really isn’t any desire to go off plan.

Im moving up again on the scale so I’ll keep this until I stall. The amount of rice is quite a lot so next, I’ll try adding in an extra banana and apple etc.

I’m sleeping better this week so I’m feeling better too. Gym progress this week is down but I tried lowering the weight and working more on each contraction. I think the first few weeks I was feeling so good I was chasing numbers a bit and losing that mind/muscle connection some. That might also help my joints feel a bit better too.

one other thing. So the end of last week I noticed that the outside of my right knee was bothering me after hack squat. In fact, I stopped mid set because I started to feel it during the reps. I’ve always loved hack and it’s never bothered me, even while doing full range of motion. Tried playing with my feet position and toe point, but it all hurt still. Only thing that has changed is the weight. Anyway, I’m gonna back off that movement for a week or so and come back to it and lower the weight a bit and see how it feels in 1-2wks.
Now, that I’m thinking about it…I did have to substitute in smith squats and after that was when it started bothering me. (I do these ass to grass) Wonder if I didn’t get my feet position right for my hips etc. Anyway, that may be it.

@Echos your protein is high I like that. Lets get more protein there more fats is needed, omega 3 fats. I did notice high rice so you need to add more fiber like psyllium husk.
What supplements you using bro? updates?
 
switch to front squats, it forces you to use better form and less pressure on knees
