Day 62 - Nothing really earth shattering to report. Just keeping my cycle log up to date and staying accountable. Workouts are going well and the additional rest for my legs appear to have been needed. I am making slow progress in getting my upper body back in the game. I do not want to hinder a full recovery from my injury. I am sparring at least 2 days a week. Mixed Martial Arts is a true passion and I enjoy the training comradery that it provides. Besides who doesn't like getting blasted in the face or slammed to the ground. ;) The leg training is being translated into more leg strength, agility, and flexibility which is helping my speed, grappling and reaction time while sparring. Some of the pups are even taking notice and commenting on my improvements. Carb cycling is back in full swing and I am fully adjusted to the nutrition change. I am affording myself a cheat meal on occasion. Really no schedule or reason for it. Only that it is nice to be 'normal' sometimes. Of course 6 Taco Bell Enchiritos in one sitting cannot really be considered normal! FYI- Enchiritos are not on the menu board but you can still get them. A slice of heaven for a buck 99 I always say. My family thinks I am crazy! Two weeks left on MENT. Tapering off Primo. Currently down to 400mg/wk. GH is now at an anti-aging dos of 2.5iu pre bedtime. My normal GH production is drastically reduced because of my age so ND saw no harm in taking the dose before bed. Strength gains are obvious. Muscle definition and separation is obvious. Natural body fat reduction without really trying - check! I have abs and obliques 24 7 so my BF%, without being measured, is back down in the 8% range. Might be even slightly lower. Not really caring about that at this time. Weight - UNKNOWN. I just know my wife says, "You look great naked." ;) She has always said my legs were too small so this cycle is as much for her as it is for me. Women love symmetry. You can get the eyes to turn with broad shoulders, big chest and solid arms but to to get their clothes off and keep them off you better have the entire package.

My lady likes abs, so that's what I do for her. Being normal? Once in awhile it is nice, I'll eat a couple homemade cookies now and again; a dip in the cookie jar isn't going to fuck anything up, actually it's good for real world balance. It isn't much and makes my girl smile to try one of her treats. I mean, she's already dealing with enough of my nuttiness :-P I'll eat a damn cookie (or two lol). At any rate, love your updates, I dig cycle logs

Second cycle. Search the cycle logs to see my first run last year. MENT is interesting. Pros- Strong gains in size, moderate strength gains, huge libido bump. Con's- Male sterility drug (could shut you down for good), amortizes like test on steroids, hard to source. My opinion is that it is very versatile and could be used in bulking or cutting. Very little research on it and everything we really know about it is anecdotal.

Day 57- Training and diet changes. Leg training is 2 days per week vs. 4. I am utilizing the 'strength' workout and combining the 'hypo' and 'endurance' to create a modified version of those workouts. I should continue to see progressions in muscle development and strength. The additional rest might be exactly what is needed at this stage. My injury recovery is 90-95% and will be adding a full upper body routine 2x per week. A split push/pull routine. A six day routine with 2 days rest. Calories are currently sitting around 3200 and I began carb cycling on a 3 day cycle. Calories will be limited to 2500 on rest days. On the six day rotation daily average calories equal 2966 and carbs average 300. This worked well last cycle. The only difference this time is that my daily average calories are slightly lower and the inclusion of Primo. Primo is known to build muscle in a deficit and we are putting it to the test. My weight is still unknown. I feel harder, stronger and look thicker down below so I am content to continue in the direction I am going. I have three weeks of MENT left to run and then I will be tapering off Primo into my TRT regimen for the balance of the summer. GH will be reduced to an anti-aging dose at that time.

Thanks The Big Nasty. Primo is a cool compound in the right setting and physique where it shines. I plan on writing a specific review on it once I have the time. In my opinion those who say it is over rated are either using it wrong, expecting too much, using it the wrong way or comparing it to other steroids. It does not do what many steroids will do but it does do certain things better than any other steroid in my limited recent experience with it.

All great news. Less frequency should translate into greater gains. I wouldn't dismiss the notion of leg mass increasing despite being in a deficit. Primo is built for that sort of thing. And so is Batman. I guess all the speed work in the world wasn't going to make him any faster though.

Day 50- Gradual increases in leg strength and size. My overall flexibility and dexterity has drastically improved. Endurance has remained constant with no noticeable change. Cutting some cals and carbs to get more of my abs back by the end of cycle. Weight - Unknown and don't care. Rooster- Rock hard. Well Being - Batman.

Day 21 - Switching to a 7 day rotation. Griz's routine is tearing me up and my body needs the additional rest. Calves are sore daily. ;) The additional rest day will be between endurance and strength day. I have not increased calorie intake to 3800 as stated. It remains close to 3500. With the injury, which is improving, I over estimated my TDEE so for now my diet will remain steady. MENT strength increases are evident. Each session provides a noticeable improvement in strength somewhere. Skin is oily, libido is high and increased strength. No noticeable water retention or physical evidence of E2. APL's adex is keeping everything in check. I have pharma adex and caber on hand if needed. GH is being reduced to 4iu per day, 5 on, 2 off. I am wanting my current supply of pharma grade to last until the end of July. Weight is currently unknown and is no longer part of the equation as stated in a previous update. I am supplementing with 50mg TNE and 50-100mg Stanolone pre-workout 2 days per week.

The take away for me is the notion that ones TDEE ought to be recalculated occasionally as physical exertion changes in one direction or the other. Nice, simple and concise updat SF; think I need to take note of this. Keep tearing it up SF :)

Great news. More rest means more gains. 3500 with an extra rest day will increase weekly total surplus. Smart move resting before a strength day. I'd like to get one more rest day in after the strength day in addition to before it, but you're a bullet train and I know it's hard to slow down.;)

Day 8; Week one on the books. The training routine is hard corps. Training is all indoor right now but I am looking forward to doing more of it outdoors as the weather improves. I am going to keep the weight light but will be setting strength goals on "strength day". The six day rotation is going to work for me for now but I will adjust my rest day(s) split as needed. I am at 3500 calories right now and will get the additional 300 cals per day in this week. I am avoiding the scale and simply going to use a mirror. My weight is no longer important. Symmetry was the purpose of this cycle and I don't need a scale for that. MENT is taking hold. Oily skin and high libido. GH dosing is currently first AM and 1 hour pre-workout. I still experience some tiredness even after 1 year of use but all the other common side effects are non-existent as far as I can tell. Primo seems to keep my well being really high and it will be interesting to see if that continues.

Day 3; just going through the motions on the new training sessions to learn the routine and get a feel for what Mister A is wanting me to accomplish. Hypertrophy Day is going to be a killer and Endurance will not be easier. I got a good pump and sweated like... well you know... even at the reduced weight and pace. Finally able to remain hydrated after having the stomach flu. Strength should be returning in no time. I will try to stay posted up every two weeks unless something comes up that requires me to log it.

Day 1- First pin of MENT without any problems. Blood levels should be peaking with the 14 day primo preloading phase. I feel really good. GH is two 3iu injections- first AM fasted and midday 1 hour before a meal. No training today because of moderate dehydration. I will spend the day rehydrating/recovering and hit the gym on Day 2.

STRENGTH DAY; Session 1: Strength Warmup: 12 mins on Stairmaster. Pushing through your heels and contracting glutes and hamstrings with each step. Lying Leg Curls (1-0-1-1): 30x15, 45x15. Purpose: Mainly to warm up the knee joint. Secondarily, to drive blood into the hamstrings. Important to hold the squeeze at the top of the rep to get the most out of the low amount of volume. Sumo Deadlifts (1-2-1-0): 135x6, 225x6, 315x5, 365x4. Purpose: Raw Strength. Reset after each rep. We'll discuss programming of the weights used week by week. Establish goals. It'll be your sole powerlifting movement and will assist all other movements. Session 2: Speed Warmup: Walk 1/4 Mile, Lightly Jog 1/4 Mile. Sprints: 40 Yards @ 80% Walk Back 40 Yards @ 90% Walk Back 40 Yards @ 95% Walk Back 30 Yards @ 100% Jog Back 20 Yards @ 100% Jog Back 20 Yards @ 100% Cool Down: Walk 1/4 Mile, Stretch.

ENDURANCE DAY; Brackets = Rest Pause Sets, Parentheses = Drop Sets, Tempo = Eccentric-Pause-Concentric-Pause. Rest Intervals: Between Sets: 60 Seconds Between Exercises: 60 Seconds Warmup: 15 mins on Stairmaster. Push through heels. Giant Set: Standing Calf Raises (4-0-4-0): 50x10, 80xFail Glute/Ham Raises (4-0-1-0): 0x12, 0xFail Leg Extensions (4-0-1-0): 40x12, 60xFail Superset: Walking DB Lunges (2-0-1-0): 40x1:00, 40xFail Leg Press (4-0-1-0): 180x12, 270xFail All exercise purpose and execution is the same on previous day except for Lunges and Glute/Ham Raises. For Lunges, the execution changes to a vertical spine (perpendicular to the floor) and the DBs moved back and kept in line with your torso to overload the quads. This time the exercise is done for time as opposed to reps or steps. The Glute/Ham raise purpose is to focus specifically on these muscles through the most time under tension possible. Knee extension exercises feature too much possibility for tension loss. Keeping the knee fixed creates the opportunity for extreme and constant tension. The movement is thus shorter than it can be - maintaining tension trumps a full range of motion in this case. The top of the movement should create a straight line with your upper and lower bodies. The bottom of the movement is about a 60° hip angle depending on the type of equipment used. Angle toes outward slightly. Every exercise in this day is performed for a minimum of 1 minute to burn down the slow twitch muscle fibers. There is no rest during the giant and super sets, but 60 seconds between rounds and another 60 seconds when moving from the giant set to the super set.

HYPERTROPHY DAY - Brackets = Rest Pause Sets, Parentheses = Drop Sets, Tempo = Eccentric-Pause-Concentric-Pause. Rest Intervals Between Sets: 90 seconds Between Exercises: 120 seconds Session 1: Hamstrings. Glutes. Warmup: 12 mins on Stairmaster. Low speed. Push through your heel on each step, contracting the glutes and hamstrings hard. Seated Leg Curl (2-0-1-1): 30x10, 50x10, 70x8 [xfail, xfail, xfail] Purpose: To overload the hamstrings with blood. The focus is on the peak contraction position. Keep the knee joint at 120° and less. Avoid the stretch phase. Continue driving blood into the hams by maintaining contraction throughout the movement. Point your toes to develop the lower hams and to engage the calves. Turn your knees outward very slightly to engage more of the outer hams. Vertical Leg Press (4-0-1-0): 95x8, 135x8, 185x8 (135x5, 95xfail) Purpose: Stretch position of the hamstrings, primarily. Glutes, secondarily. A power movement in essence, but using a slow eccentric to destroy as many muscle fibers as possible. No need to lock out at top or come anywhere near it; keep tension in the stretch and midway areas of the strength curve. If no access to a Vertical Leg Press Machine, a Smith Machine can be used. Lie flat on the floor and push the bar upwards with the center of your feet. Wear shoes. Be sure to set the safety pins. Bar should be positioned in line with your hips as much as possible to achieve the greatest stretch. If Smith Machine is angled, choose the side that angles away from you as you push up. Walking DB Lunges (3-0-1-0): 30x30ft, 40x30ft, 50x30ft. Purpose: Glute Power Movement. To focus on the glutes, the hip-torso angle needs to be about 50 degrees. Basically, at the bottom of the movement your lead femur is parallel to the floor, your back knee is nearly touching the ground, your chest is almost above your front knee (with a flat back), and the DBs are a few inches behind your front shin. Load slowly to the bottom and explode upwards by contracting the glute. Do one rep at a time, the goal is not to finish quickly, but to contract the glutes as hard as possible with each rep. Adductor Machine (2-0-1-1): 15x8, 30x8, 45x8 (30x5, 15x8) Purpose: Glute Peak Contraction. Avoid the bottom of the movement. Keep tension in the peak of the strength curve. Once you start to feel the contraction turn into a stretch, explode back into a full contraction. Drive as much blood onto the muscle. Finish with a double drop set. Go home. Session 2: Calves. Quads. Warmup: 12 mins on Elliptical. Medium speed. Shift weight to the balls of your feet. Lift heels up and focus on driving through the pedals using your quads. Seated Calf Raise (4-0-2-0): 25x10, 50x10, 75x10, 100xfail (75xfail, 50xfail, 25xfail, 0xfail). Purpose: Daily Calf Exercise. One calf exercise per day to absolute failure. Even if they're still sore. Keep feet shoulder width apart and toes turned out slightly. The focus is on the inner half of the calf. Activation occurs through the inside half of the foot. At the bottom of the movement flex your tibialis hard to get as much stretch as the seated position allows. Prior to the concentric phase, put the focus into the calves and activate them. Then contract by pulling your heels toward your knees. At the very top of the movement shift focus into your big toes and push them through the platform. Final drop set is done with just the weight of the machine. Finish by thoroughly stretching the calves (while flexing tibialis again). Do not stretch between sets. Leg Extensions (3-0-1-1): 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 60x10, 70x10 [xfail, xfail, xfail]. Purpose: Quad Peak Contraction. Goal is to lubricate the knee joint and flood the quads with blood. Set machine so that the angle of the knee joint stops at 90°. The bottom half of this movement is dangerous and unnecessary for its purpose here. First first sets are to warm up. The last set and subsequent Rest-Pause sets are to break down tissue. Leg Press (3-0-1-0): 270x10, 360x10, 450x10, 540x10 (360x10, 270xfail [xfail, xfail]). Purpose: Quad Destruction. Foot position should be shoulder width and as low on the foot pad as possible. Situate your lower back as deep into the seat as possible. Never sacrifice your seat position to create more stretch. Only lower the weight as low as your hips allow naturally. To press the weight back up, apply focus to the outer half of your feet, evenly from top to bottom, and instead of pushing the weight away from you, focus should be on pushing your back into the pad. Final set has two drop sets followed by two rest pause sets.

Day -5 - Griz spent a great deal of time on my behalf and designed a special leg program around my special needs and wants. The routine is rather lengthy to fully explain so I will summarize. The routine will be a four workout, six day rotation consisting of a Hypertrophy Day, an Endurance Day, a Strength Day and a Plyo Day. Each day, except Plyo, will contain two training sessions focusing on specific muscle groups utilizing tempo, drop sets, and rest-pause sets. The fourth routine, Plyometrics (jump training) will be a single session. For now I will use a 24 hour rest prior Plyo and 24 hour rest post Plyo giving me four days training and 48 hours rest in a six day rotation. The outlined program is nothing short of outstanding. Patiently waiting to get started. I am grateful the work that was put into this on my behalf. Upper body training will be remain suspended for now until my injury has the appropriate amount of time to heal. I will outline my diet in the coming days leading into cycle.

This will be very interesting to follow, might very well be ground breaking. And better to break that ground than you and The Grizz. Looking forward to following this program :)

Super excited to see the results of this for you especially in light of the fact that you will be doing legs only on a cycle. Who knows what can be accomplished as I would venture to say it has rarely ever been done. Will also serve as great data to consider for others who are trying to bring up a lagging body part by an extreme focus on it while giving the other body parts a short break and/or just enough focus to work them minimally while directly killing the lagging body part. I know you well enough that if it can be accomplished.... fuckin Batman will make it happen!!

Youre right - there weren't a whole lot of examples for this one, Nash. There are plenty of cycles devoted to bringing up a 1RM Squat where the focus is on supporting squat exercises. But I hadn't heard of any exclusive leg training hypertrophy programs aside from the "squat everyday" thing Mike Rashid did last year. Another challenge presented was that SF is limited due to his injury. So squats - front and back - were out. Add to that SF's demand for a more athletic based, outside the gym training and you get my most ambitious and challenging program thus far. Which I'm grateful for because I stepped out of my comfort zone and was forced to read what other coaches (track and field guys) were doing which I would have never done on my own (I sprint to the buffet line exclusively). Knowing that the program would be followed 100% and maximized was also a real pleasure and something that pushed me to give the best I could provide.
