Today was chest day and my official first day once again using SIZEON by Gaspari Nutrition. My original plans were to use the Gaspari Triple Anabolic Arsenal which consists of SIZEON, SuperPump250, and Novedex XT. However, after giving it some thought I opted against the Novedex XT and decided that I would probably do just as well only using SIZEON and SuperPump250. The reason being that I had only one bottle of Novedex XT for myself and that was only two weeks worth of supply. I felt that no noticeable effects would likely be seen after only two weeks of using a supplement. I also felt that even if I were to acquire more Novedex XT, that testosterone boosters are not particularly useful for young men. I am 25 years old and can't say that I really feel much if any side effects of low testosterone. As a result I don't think there is much purpose in me boosting testosterone in my body which is probably already near a peak. I also felt that SIZEON by Gaspari Nutrition was INCREDIBLY effective and that combining it with SuperPump250 will probably be more effective still. But when using supplements, you always have to consider the law of diminishing returns which means that the more you use the more the gains will reduce with everything extra that you add on. I personally don't feel that more is always better although it sometimes is, you just have to know when more is not better. Check out my review of SIZEON by Gaspari Nutrition at the link below:

Here are my before pictures from using SIZEON for the first time, at about 175 pounds:

What I can say is that I gained and kept around eight pounds while using SIZEON and didn't experience much bloat, if any. I got a pimple on my shoulder from using it, but otherwise I didn't experience any side effects and can't even be 100% certain that the pimple was related to my use of the SIZEON. Pimples are more of a hormonal side effect than anything else. I also used Satur8 by ISS Research today rather than SuperPump250 because I didn't feel that I would have been able to wait enough time before my workout begun for the SuperPump250 to be effective. The Satur8 was faster acting so I opted for it instead because I had not planned well enough in advance that day and needed to get my workout started!

For Chest

  • Machine Flyes
  • Incline Press
  • Flat Dumbbell Bench Press
  • Push Ups

I've always liked working out chest hard and heavy using very basic exercises. Unfortunately, I think that through all the years of training chest very hard, I was doing it slightly improperly which resulted in extra development for my shoulders and lagging development for my chest. To this day, I still don't have a chest! Despite that, at my prime I was able to bench press almost 350 pounds. Here are two pictures from today taken cold:

Before I take any more pictures I will be sure to shave my legs and make some attempt to get a tan! I will also get a haircut. I have had naturally occurring acne on my back since puberty. Lately I've decided that it really detracts from the muscularity of my back and I will make an effort to eliminate it. I am now washing my back with a body wash and a loofah and I'll see where that takes me.

As you can see from the pictures above I don't really have a chest! Some people boast about the importance of being strong, but honestly I don't care at this point! Bench pressing upwards of 350 pounds clearly never gave me much of a chest. Check out this clip below of me bench pressing 315 for three nice and clean reps:

Additionally, here I am bench pressing 225 pounds for 16 nice and and clean reps:

So forget training for strength! I would much rather look like I can bench press 350 pounds than actually be able to do it! This is along the same lines as what Dave Pulcinella said. Dave starred in the hit bodybuilding documentary "Raising the Bar":

I'll say this: Dave DEFINITELY looks like he can bench press 350 pounds (or a lot more). When you have a chest like his, who cares about what you lift?

Something else to add is that it is bodybuilding not powerlifting! You are not judged based on how much you lift, but how you look!

My workout went very well - hard and heavy! I have to continue to remind myself that HEAVY is not as important as HARD. Intensity is important, and heavy weights are important to some degree, but the focus should remain on the squeezing and flexing of the muscles throughout the entire range of motion. I hope everything goes well because I plan to get myself a chest this summer! It will be proof to me that ego lifting is completely useless. But I guess on the bright side, all that heavy chest training did get my shoulders pretty developed! =)
