Day 22 of New Progenex Challenge

so I am cutting my progenex way down until the 16th because of my singing performance, and because dairy jacks up my voice.... pretty standard singer's move

I should say dairy protein because I will be living a lot off of ghee, organic coconut oil, and humapro

so today

1 tbs organic purity farms ghee and 10 Humapro - 3 times

Calories: 417

97% Fat, 3% protein

0 carbs

feeling a little under but I will heal fast, just going to work out next hard on Friday am

calories will be high today, kill some cravings, plus going out at night for beers and food, going to try and go with 1 light beer





tomorrow will be a low cal day, just chained out and humapro and progenex more muscle and some organic ghee, calories will be about 400

Saturday, prob will have one meal out - then back to low cal Sunday through Tuesday

Wednesday will be dinner out with folks and almost certainly a lunch at work, Thursday and Friday 'clean' and low cal

Saturday - barbecue... and so forth

I promised Progenex I would let them know how this cycle goes for me

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

strength update: 2nd workout today

I couldn't wait to use my new Progenex

so I went back to the gym after work, this time near my folk's place

30 pullups, in sets of 2 and 3, in 26 minutes!

wow, this stuff is working!

took the More Muscle and Recovery afterwards, took the MM with a teaspoon of organic coconut oil

can't wait for 30 day update!

free free free (at last!)

so I got some free new progenex More Muscle and Recovery from Progenex

really nice of them

I'm sure it works (why else would they send it to me? I know that isn't entirely logical but I am an optimist)

I am keeping a log for the guy who gave it to me

so I am starting out at: 181.6 @ 27.2% BF

my plan is to use the More Muscle each day for 30 days and Recovery after my workouts

note - today is the 13th day in a row I have been using the old progenex again

strength update

so this morning I knocked out 30 chinups in 32 minutes - all with an additional 10 lb dumbell!

getting stronger and stronger!

Monday, September 13, 2010

strength update

so yesterday I did chinups, BUT all with an extra 5 lb dumbell

I did 30 in 32 minutes, 9 sets of 2, the rest singles

then did a close grip chinup with an extra 20 lbs, then another plain one


trying to break the 177 plateau by end of next week

Friday, September 10, 2010

strength update

still doing good with chinups

today I did dips with a weight belt - 3 reps with 25 lbs extra!!!

hitting the progenex hard

waiting for my new progenex to come in next week

Friday, September 3, 2010

good update

so I finished a two day Chained Out and Humapro fast

yesterday, I even got up to 40 Humapro

I worked out, a scoop of WTF before I hit the pullup bar at my old client site

40 Chinups!!!

4 sets of 3
10 sets of 2
then 8 singles

took me 47 minutes

woke up at 177.0 lbs @ 25.0% BF, back is looking real nice

thinking about bringing the Chained Out down, don't like that many artificial sweeteners

hit the gym this morning after taking some con-cret

did the Bodymaster Incline Press - 30 reps, mostly in sets of 3 of 220 lbs, 1 warm up set at 210 lbs

really excited for next two months - I thinking I am going to do 2x CO/Humapro fasts a week - that is basically zero calories for two days, a great balancer... next weighin after tomorrow is in about 2 weeks

other than eating out - going to focus on eating goods, fasting, and working out really really hard

Sunday, August 29, 2010

strength update

hit the gym

despite tiredness and junk yesterday

30 chinups in 22 minutes

37 total in 30 minutes

then I did 5 dips

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Monday, August 23, 2010

strength update

30 pullups in 32 minutes!

wrap up

ok, so last week was pretty crazy

over the period of Friday through the following Saturday, had SEVEN days of bad eating

a Chained out humapro fast on one day, a low carb day on another

put on 9 lbs as a result

went to Le Mar on Saturday for my mother's birthday

night before, went to Patxi's pizza for my buddy Loren's 40th birthday

trying for a 4 day Chained Out and Humapro fast

I did workout yesterday, tough - lost a lot of strength on the incline press, back down to 200 lbs

Friday, August 20, 2010

it was just one day :(

in short, Wednesday got railroaded by a bunch of food and lack of self control

yesterday was decent, but had to go out for mom's birthday

will retry this next week

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Chained Out and Humapro Fast

so today is the first day of a 3 day attempt at a chained out and humapro fast

3-4 scoops of Chained Out a day along with 30 Humapro

workout planned for tomorrow

oxyelite pro and recreate use also planned

Friday, August 13, 2010


so I hit my all time lowest weight

177.0 lbs @ 25.7% BF

really happy - my next weigh in will be a few weeks from now because next week will be pretty slammed

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

and stronger...

so I repeated my pullup workout from Saturday morning

even better this time

I did 30 pullups, same sequence as before, pullup, neutral grip, chinup

this time I did it in 46 minutes, shaved off 9 minutes

in addition, I did 10% more overall

so 33 total in 50 minutes, the last 3 being single rep neutral grip pullups

I had a heavy dinner yesterday, meat, potatoes, eggs, egg yolks, half and half, and Warrior Milk, preceded by an anabolic pump

plan was to eat super light, but I went to the city and went to George's and had a dozen raw oysters and later at night had a 1/2 lb of ground chuck - still no more than 800 calories though I would say

Saturday, August 7, 2010

and stronger!

did my first 30 pullup workout!

it took me 55 minutes

in singles and two rep sets

alternated between pullups, neutral grip, and chinups

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

quick update

getting stronger

I'm up to 230 lbs on the BodyMasters Incline Press

yesterday did a single rep barbell curl with 80 lbs

also today, despite a chest and shoulder workout this morning

I did 15 pullups over 30 minutes

and then 5 chinups split up 2 hours later

good stuff

Friday, July 30, 2010

strength update

so despite my weight up by 1.8 lbs

my chest got stronger, up to 220 lbs on the Bodymaster Incline Chest Press

so I am going all out now - I found some leftover TNA and Prime, why not?

also got some Recreate and Oxyelite Pro, why not either?

I can keep my cals low, but my protein high with my Chained and Humapro

post workout meal, only food for today

2 organic egg yolks (1 of them pastured)
3/8 lb ground beef - seared in tallow
scoop of super plasma with organic cinnamon

6 Prime
4 scoops Chained Out
30 Humapro

disappointing update

so I put back on the 1.8 lbs I lost from the week before!

that's what 3 full cheat days will do I guess... I didn't shy on the calories on the other days either

gonna keep it to only one day this week and/or several Chained Out and Humapro fast days

Thursday, July 29, 2010

strength update

really psyched I did 15 pullups today in about ten minutes!

interviewish Tuesday

so I went in for a chat for a possibly new consulting gig I may get

I did a workout first thing in the morning

my first time I used RPM, I used 3 of them

my strength is still going up

key metric

105 lbs x 3: 10 sets

10 Chinups - 1 at a time still, but still!

before my interview I had an organic raw egg yolk and 3 organic eggs sunny side up in lard

late dinner

0.72 lb Marin Sun Farms beef - a touch raw, but the rest seared, mixed with minced onion
2 spoons of WFN mayo
8 oz mushrooms sauteed in tallow and lard

tomorrow I am looking forward to a great chest workout and then a meal of eggs, cottage cheese, and potatoes

Chained Out: 4 scoops
Humapro: 25 total

Monday, July 12, 2010

in transition

so my brain is working around the clock, trying to get my next new gig

this is the price of consulting I guess - everything should go fine though (I firmly believe)

I ate really well again today

I really want my weight and fat loss to zoom so I am doing things (or not doing things) that probably don't affect my fat loss but as I like to see the scale go down on certain days I will avoid the super plasma protein as it is a liquid protein

now tomorrow I will be working out so I will definitely have the super plasma during my post workout meal

today I had a single meal

2 organic egg yolks - raw
8 oz ground beef seared with dried minced onion
8 oz organic mushrooms - sauteed in tallow

Chained Out: 3 scoops
Humapro: 25 total

world cup final

Spain beat Netherlands 1 to 0


and I ate perfectly as well a great day

Thursday, July 8, 2010

rest day

I am looking forward to a great workout tomorrow

doing a rest day today while I work (a lot)

started out my day with Chained Out and 10 Humapro

3 hours later

1 organic egg yolk - raw
2 organic eggs sunny side up in bacon fat
4 slices of bacon

4 hours later

Chained Out and 10 Humapro


1 sunny side up organic egg
piece of flank steak seared in tallow
4 slices of bacon

5 Humapro before bed

2 scoops of CO and 25 Humapro total

187.2 lbs @ 26.8% BF

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

2 in a row (Maui in 6 months)

ok, so got a second decent diet day in a row

had a great chest workout

key metric

Dips: 10 sets of 5

Chained Out and Humapro before and after workout and before bed

(2 scoops and 30 Humapro)

dinner was a little heavier than yesterday

I took a pslin before

0.4 Marin Sun Farms beef - raw
2 organic scrambled eggs
good amount of organic red potatoes
5 slices of bacon
20 grams of super plasma with organic cinnamon

so if I go to Maui in January, that will be 6 months for my mythical in shape proposition

thinking about just doing Chained Out and Humapro tomorrow, if I do a meal it will be small and the goal is zero carb

you know what, I am going to plant the mental seed for my meal right now:

2 organic egg yolks
1/3 lb ground beef - seared
20 grams super plasma + organic cinnamon

approximate calories: 600

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

trying a little something...

so I found some p-slin in my room

I popped one of those before my daily meal

but before that I hit the gym after a weekend of decadence

I did back

key metric

T bar: 100 lbs x 3: 10 sets

Also, 3 chinups (not in a row though)

Barbell Curl: 55 lbs x 11 + x rep

Chained out and Humapro before and after my workout
5 Humapro before bed

(2 scoops, 30 Humapro total)


2 scrambled pastured eggs in leaf lard

1.15 organic yukon gold potatoes in lard/tallow
20 grams super plasma protein with organic cinnamon

4th of July

I had a great weekend in the city

I ate too much, what else is new?

192.5 lbs on my parent's scale

considering what I ate, that's actually pretty good

maybe the Humapro and Chained Out are helping

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

good eating day and good working out

so my girl left for home today

miss her already

I had a great back workout

had 2 raw organic egg yolks and 0.37 prather beef, raw

Monday, June 28, 2010

quick summary of last few days

I flew back into town

didn't eat great before I left Minnesota

but I did eat simpley, meat and potatoes Friday and Saturday

had my first workout on Saturday and again yesterday

ate and drank yesterday at Scott's

Thursday, April 29, 2010

busting through the plateau!!!

threw down a progenex shake + 6srg + a scoop of Metabolic Drive

dinner was simple and 100% raw

3 organic pastured egg yolks
2/3 lb Holding Ranch ground beef with organic mexican spices and real salt

About 135 grams of protein

Calories = approximately 900

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

really happy, even with these low calories

so I love my girl

there I said it (about a million times to her though)

I am learning that I won't wither away with low calories, and that I can afford to it

actually we all can, we have tons of stored bodyfat on us - important thing is to access it and let your body go to town

I'll be going back to my progenex tomorrow morning after my workouts, on days I don't workout, I will just fast or keep calories to around 400 to 900 calories

it's amazing, fasting the whole day is really hard, but a small vlc to zero carb meal is fantastic at blunting the effects of hunger

really testing this Adonis Effect thing - if I don't need a calorie surplus, then I workout a lot to build up my chest and shoulders, and still lose fast super super fast...

so workout planned for tomorrow
let's see - perhaps some incline dumbell press, dips, T-bar, and some squats to finish stuff up

and then again on Saturday

do a pure military press and squats workout shall we?

will take Sunday off - will see how I feel on Monday

even if I workout on Tuesday (assuming I don't fly out to Minnesota) - I can go with no beef by just eating some extra protein powder and a dozen egg yolks

so single meal today of about 500 calories, all raw

2 organic pastured egg yolks
0.53 lb Prather Ranch sirloin tips with organic cumin and turmeric

had this pretty early in the morning to fight off cravings and to get my food done for the day

tomorrow hopefully will be a progenex in the AM, and then egg yolks/steak for dinner

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

too rainy and cold to fast...

it's cold and rainy

but I still worked out today

focusing on bodyparts that I like on myself

walked into the Fremont 24 hour fitness and did 51 dips!
in sets of 5

dinner was zero carb

2 organic pastured egg yolks
1/3 lb Holding Ranch Beef - raw
3/4 lb ribeye steak cooked in tallow

approximately 1100 calories

oh yeah, woke up at 181.4 lbs @ 25.4% BF

Monday, April 26, 2010

Monday Meaty Monday (with a medium side of fries)

yes, I'm tired and can't think of clever titles, so sue me

very mellow day, sitting in my condo

popped a magic before hand

2 raw organic pastured egg yolks

1.06 lb of Prather Ranch ground beef mixed with seasoning and fried in tallow

a bite raw though

1 russet potato in tallow and grilled onions

raw, most seared in tallow


gonna workout tomorrow

going to rip off the rest of this excess flab in no time

I'm going to use fasting and not go super denial...if I want some carbs, then potatoes...

Sunday Meaty Sunday

just hung out mellow with my girl on Sunday and watched a little basketball

despite a few cravings, I stuck with the plan

I didn't do the no salt thing as I brought ny strips from Minnesota that I already slathered with real salt and Lundy's beef seasoning

OMG, they were delicious

I stuck it in the nuwave for 5 minutes and then seared it in Marin Sun Farms Tallow

before I had the steak I took a few raw bites of Holding Ranch Beef, I used it to make a nice mexican fry up for my girl

Minnesota Trip 4: Day 17 (Below 180 Before Flying Home!!!)

well, what a morning

woke up at my lowest weight ever since college!

Minnesota Trip 4: Day 14 (couldn't do it)

I slept pretty well last night, didn't watch too much tv

went through the fast - felt like forever, but just started day 2

just water again today, not counting quarts as much as I will go by feel - yesterday I stopped drinking water at 3pm and was using the restroom into the night

Shrugs 50 lbs x 12
Dumbell Shoulder Press 40 lbs x 5
was breathing hard when I finished
this short whole body workout was done to boost GH and to preserve muscle mass and remove any fear of not eating and just keep on burnin' goo
ok, so I just got too hungry, so I went to whole foods in St. Paul and picked up 6 lbs of ny strip and 6 dozen pastured eggs, that will be my food for the next 6 days
weighed myself in at 181.2 lbs @23.7%BF before dinner
dinner was simple, all raw, simply 1/6th of what I bought
12 organic pastured egg yolks
1 lb ny strip

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

then did seated arnold presses with 35 lb dumbells

finished up with dumbell bicep curls, 35 lbs followed by 30 lbs

raw dinner

1 tbs organic purity farms ghee
0.91 ny strip steak with real salt

approximately 1050 calories with around 80 grams of protein

also threw down 5 quarts of water
