This workout went very well. I increased my military press 10 from my last workout! I have never used 125 for two sets in a row until today. I increased every other exercise by 1-2 reps per set with the same weight.

I believe these increases are due to MAN Bodyoctane that I started using yesterday. I am not completely sure though. If I notice the same things happening throughout the week (increased strength and endurance), then I know it is the MAN Bodyoctane.

I am really disappointed in today despite my great calf workout. I hurt my left tricep again during my last tricep workout. I hurt it doing skullcrushers. I was already warmed up and skullcrushers were my second exercise for my last workout. The first exercise went fine so that couldn't have been the problem.

I am going to take skullcrushers out of my routine because they have caused me to be injured twice. Bodybuilding is all about finding which exercises work for you and which ones hold you back. Skullcrushers definitely are holding me back and I know several people who don't due them because they simply cause injuries.

On a more positive note for today, I increased my calf press by 40 pounds from my last workout! This is definitely due to the MAN Bodyoctane that I have been taking.

I haven't noticed results like this since I took Syntrax Swole v2 and this product might even surpass the results on Swole v2! This product is amazing me so far. I can only hope to see the same results on my next workouts.

I can't believe how well this day went! After coming off a bad day yesterday from not being able to train everything, I knew today would have to go great. I usually never have two bad workouts back to back.

My barbell squat increased 10 pounds from my last workout, hack squat 20 pounds, and everything else also increased! This is due to the MAN Bodyoctane that I mentioned before. It is an insane supplement and gives you the energy and drive to do more than you did last time in the gym.

I had to force my food to stay down during my workout because after each set I felt like throwing up. I have a feeling I will have this problem a lot due to the amount of food that I will have to take in during the off-season. I can't wait for my next leg day!

This workout went pretty good. I increased my standing calf raise by 20 pounds, my seated calf raise by 10 pounds, and increased reps on most other exercises. I was disappointed that my chest exercises weren't impacted as much as my other ones from the MAN Bodyoctane.

My reps increased on some of the exercises though, so I can't complain about that. My weighted dips went very poorly. I was simply drained out of energy by the end of my workout because I added 4 sets to this day from my last workout. I will do weighted dips before dumbbell flys next workout so they won't be neglected again.

I woke up a little late this morning, so I had to change around the timing of my meals slightly. I didn't get them in as fast as I hoped to, so I was a little late arriving to the gym. I didn't have time to workout my abs because my gym closes early on Saturday.

My back workout went pretty well though. I increased my reps on pull-ups as well as my reps or weight on every other exercise! I injured my leg a long time ago doing deadlifts, so I am taking it easy with them and slowly building up my strength on that exercise.

This exercise is crucial to adding mass to my lower back that was missing at my last competition. I am going to continue to have to pound my back like this session in order for it to grow. My back needs more volume than my other body parts to grow.

I thought my diet went pretty well this week. I was really busy with lots of schoolwork, cooking, fishing, hanging out with friends, as well as other things so I am very happy that I didn't miss any meals.

I cheated a little bit more than I wanted to on Sunday, but it was my brother's graduation party and I don't get to eat good old "grandma food" very often! My weight at the end of the week is 177 pounds, which is one pound over what it was at the beginning of the week. I don't have to increase my food intake because that is about how much weight I am looking to gain every week.

Workout

Rest

I thought this week went really great. I can't believe how well MAN Bodyoctane is working for me. After I am done taking MAN Bodyoctane, I will probably go on another creatine malate supplement. I am thinking about going on either ISS Satur8 or SAN v12 Turbo at the moment. I'll just have to wait and see how things turn out.

I started off the week at 176 pounds I am now 177 pounds. This is how much I want to be consistently gaining throughout my bulking up process unless I change my plans.
