    Yeah well just got the label and that’s the ingredient so not sure how my local store is still selling it haha? Seems to have been banned from 1/10/17.

    The shelves were pretty stocked with it too so not like it’s scarce haha.

    LOL stock up big time. How much is a tub? Do you do drug and alcohol tests at work? We do and I declare pre-workouts incase DMHA or DMAA shows up as methamphetamines.

    ban came in october last year. IDK about supp shops being able to run out the stock then its illegal to own... kind of like the phenibut situation now lol.

    The other thing is that preworkout also contains yohmibine which some people react very bad to. Particularly when combined with all those other stims. Yohm can cause like a cold/sweating sensation as opposed to normal stims making you feel hot and sweat. Also really bad for anxiety too.

    Will also add Yohmibine has been a prescription drug in aus for years now too lol.

    Thanks @scump for the info. I know it is getting harder to get pre's with DMHA in from the USA now as well. Gotta keep the eyes peeled for any new pre's hitting the shelf.

    Cheers for the info @scump . You're probably right about the Yohimbine, I definitely noticed increased sweating but not really cold sweats. Only took like 1/2-3/4 scoop today and was a bit better, still felt a little sickly and not very hungry after my workout but did manage to eat 2 big homemade beef burgers. Once I start eating it's fine, it's just I don't feel like eating haha.

    Summary

    Only 1/2 scoop pre workout today and felt much better, also had some lollies with it as well so that might of helped too. I'm sure I'll probably build up a tolerance over time like usual and be back up to 1 scoop in no time haha.

    Anyway workout was really good, only did 10-12 rep stuff today though didn't get up to 15 like last week. Another pretty limited workout, had to finish some meal prep this morning then sat on the computer for a bit like usual. Really gonna try and get in early tomorrow, but the gym is generally pretty packed before 11AM which is annoying. But I could easily be getting there at 10:30-11AM, been slacking and going like 11:30AM the past few days.

    Started with BB incline today, was going to do the same 12/12/10/10 as rep scheme as last week but did 12x60kg then went straight to 70kg for 10 rep sets but did 3 sets to make up for it. They felt pretty good but were a little tougher than I expected but guess that's a good thing, don't want it to be too easy! Was going to do machine shoulder press next but was being used so did some 12 rep side raises which felt alright. Underhand tricep extensions felt alright too but definitely feel it more when I do the neutral/hammer grip, but it's good to change it up.

    DB flat bench wasn't the best but not horrible. Form just didn't feel solid and arms weren't in sync but I've always had this problem which is why I tend to stick to BB and machines more. 30kg for 12 rep sets felt pretty heavy too, last set was tough but managed to finish it. Machine shoulder press was good, was a bit harder after all the stuff I've done already but last week I only did 10 rep sets with 30kg so 3x12 today is an improvement. Finished with BB French press, 30kg was a little too heavy for 12 rep sets and only managed 2 sets. Might of been able to push out a 3rd set but my form was dropping on that 2nd set so feel like it would of been a struggle.

    Full day of proper eating today, got meals for the next 4-5 days. Working over the weekend so that should keep me in check and will try not to eat any crap. Got a little protein and carbs to have when I get home from work so maybe just some cereal or toast or something to finish it off.

    Hamstring does not feel like it's getting better to be honest, definitely felt a bit shit today and thinking I might just take the week off next week and see how that goes. If that doesn't help then I really don't know what to do. Really hate not being able to squat, it's been my favourite lift for a long time now and I hate how big my upper body is feeling now hahaha. Good for the ego though..

    Summary

    Bit of mixed energy in today's workout. Wasn't feeling that great at the start, couldn't really focus and like that workout I had last week it just wasn't feeling as good as it should with high reps. Think I was just on my phone too much playing games and shit so gotta stop that. As the workout went on I started to get more into it and ended up doing a decent amount of volume including some higher 15-18 rep stuff. Won't go into detail on everything. DB hammer curls at the end were sort of the same as last week, did 5 reps alternating then 5 reps together then 5 reps alternating again and was expecting to only be able to do that but first set I felt like I could do more so went for 5 more together but only managed 3. Those last 3 together reps on each set were really tough haha. Felt the best out of everything though.

    Ended up having maccas last night after work cause dad asked me to get him some on the way home, so of course I had to get myself some. So was a little surprised I didn't weigh in a bit heavier this morning.

    90% sure I'm going to take the week off next week, my hamstring just isn't getting better and seems like even doing upper body stuff isn't helping. Even simple stuff like the light rep bent over cable rear delt flies made it really tight and sore today. Only seems to really get affected when I do any sort of bent over movement though. Maybe I should see someone if the week off doesn't help, I don't know..

    My local sup guy told me that the ban started as of 01/10/17 but they are allowed to sell any stock they had on the shelves before that date, obviously they can't order any more so once they have cleared the stock they have then that's it for dmha.

    Summary

    So obviously not taking the week off, just couldn't do it haha. Probably regret it but hamstring felt fine this morning, little tight now so sort of makes me think maybe I should of had the week off. But won't be able to workout Friday then got 4 days off work Sat/Sun/Mon/Tue so I'm thinking of taking those 4 days plus the day I can't workout due to double shift on Friday which will give me 5 good days of rest then back into it on Wednesday the week after and hopefully it's feeling alright.

    Anyway today's workout was a really good one which made me happy I decided to do it. OHP felt really strong, was definitely tough but got the 5x3. One thing I wanna work on is pushing my head through a bit more which I've said already. BB flat bench was good too, I remember 92.5kg not feeling the best last week but 95kg today definitely felt better. Also dropped it to 80kg for 2 sets, wasn't sure whether to do 8 rep sets or 5 rep pause reps - ended up doing 1 of each but think I'll just do pause reps from now on if I do it again because it's better for strength training.

    Straight bar pushdowns were strong too, used the regular bar today and managed 4 sets with the stack + 2.3kg plate. They are obviously harder after doing OHP and bench. DB side raises were good, usually do 8 rep sets even for the acclimation sets but thought if I'm going to try and go heavier I might want to just do a few reps like I do on everything else rather than 8 which is basically another set. Machine incline felt really good, same weight as last time for 8 rep sets but not too bothered - was still tough.

    Diet today isn't that great, bit of a random day and probably going to be under on everything pretty much. Had a chill day with the missus watching movies in bed etc.

    Summary

    No workout yesterday, had no motivation after work and left my shoes at home so just said fuck it. Little disappointed in myself but eh, we have those days. Today was sort of the same motivation wise, but I didn't forget my shoes so I got my ass to the gym. 1 scoop of Stim Lord which I thought would be fine after a day of work/food but it smashed me haha. Think I'll do 3/4 scoop on arvo workouts and 1/2 scoop on morning workouts. Got a feeling I won't be getting to sleep too easily tonight :rolleyes:

    Anyway workout ended up being really solid, same weight on underhand pulldowns for 4x6 but felt a lot better today. Said last week I wasn't in a rush to up it since it didn't feel that great, but next week I'll give 88.5kg a go I think and see how it feels. The yohimbine sweats from this pre workout are pretty annoying, my palms were really sweaty going into the last set which made holding onto the bar a little harder than usual. Bicep curls also felt better than last week, last week I didn't think I'd get 4 sets and it was feeling a little like that today but it was definitely better, first 3 sets were solid and maybe only the last 1-2 reps on the last set were a struggle. Improvement though, might touch 45kg next week.

    Machine one arm rows were pretty solid too, usually they are a real struggle especially for my left side towards the end but it felt really good and probably should of even tried a little heavier after the first set but I'll do that next week. Rope face pulls were pretty good, did a pyramid up to 26kg last week so decided to go for 3 sets with 24kg. Got it pretty nicely but it was a little harder than I thought, thought I was going conservative with 24kg but it was the right choice. Rope hammer curls felt good, form felt a bit better on these today really tried to keep my elbows tucked in and might of been able to go a little heavier even.

    So overall really good workout, just wish I didn't take that much pre workout because really I could of gone another hour or two but for my heavy days I don't really want to get into doing too much volume. Scales aren't working at the moment so not really tracking my weight, might be good to not do it every day for a while haha. Weighed myself at gym though and was like 95.5kg so pretty standard. Will do my hyper push day tomorrow, then nothing Friday due to 17 hr shift but think I'll be doing my hyper pull workout Saturday morning with a mate which will be good.

    Summary

    Had an average sleep last night, stayed up late gaming. Manged to get to sleep alright though, pre workout didn't keep me up as long as I thought. Felt pretty shit all day, wasn't keen to go to the gym at all. At one point I wasn't even going, finished work a little late but decided last minute to just get my ass to the gym. Took 3/4 pre workout which was more than enough suprisingly, considering how shit I felt. Felt really good all workout.

    BB incline was pretty good, was using the thinner bar so ROM is a bit bigger. Was going to do 65/70/75 for sets but think the pre workout got the better of me and just went straight to 75kg sets. Last week I did 3x10x70kg but it didn't feel the best so thought I might struggle to get the 3x10x75kg but was really strong and got it nicely imo, was definitely tough but happy with it. Was going to do machine shoulder press next but was being used, decided to do some 10 rep front raises instead of cable side raises like last week. These felt pretty good, might of been able to get another set of 14kg though. One arm tricep extensions felt really good.

    Machine flat bench was also strong, pretty sure I struggled with 12 rep sets with 80kg last time I tried. Each set got harder and I did a couple without wrapping my hands around the handles, just letting it sit on my palms and sticking my fingers out if that makes sense which makes it a little harder but feel it so much more. Did this with a couple of the machine seated shoulder press, ended up doing the same weight as last week but doing them like that did make it a little harder. Finished with seated french presses, last week I tried to do 30kg for 12 rep sets and only managed 2 so dropped it back to 25kg today and was much more controlled and felt really good.

    Stuck to my diet all day but having some pizza tonight to kick off the footy season, my mighty Dragons are playing so why not! No workout tomorrow, 17 hr shift at work. I said I was going to get a pull hyper workout in on Saturday but that's not looking likely now, going into the city with mates to the tattoo expo in the morning and finishing late tomorrow means I won't be able to get up as early as I wanted to and get to the gym.

    I'm off work for 4 days from Saturday so I'm thinking I'll get back into the gym next Wednesday which will hopefully give my hamstring enough time off. Still not feeling 100% so I think 5 days off of the gym completely and 4 of those days not working as well will do it some good.

    So hamstring is alright I guess, haven't really been able to test it out since I've been off work and gym since Thursday last week. Gonna do some stretches and maybe some bodyweight squats/romanian deadlifts in a minute to see how it is.

    On another note, my wrist is somehow fucked. Woke up yesterday morning and had some slight like muscle pain in the top of my wrist. Figured I must of slept on it or something. Thought it would feel better this morning but nope, actually feeling worse. Woke me up a couple times during the night as well.

    My missus reckons it's from being on the computer, since it's the hand I use my mouse with. But I've been gaming for 10-15 years and never had this problem before so I find that hard to believe.

    So yeah this week might be a complete write off if it doesn't feel better. I'm doing meal prep tomorrow and think I will go a bit lower on the macros after weighing myself this morning and coming in at about 95.5kg haha. To be fair my diet hasn't been perfect these last 4-5 days..

    Wrist still fucked. Not sure if it's something worth seeing a doctor about, I sort of want to though just because I really have no idea how I did it so I'm just curious what the fuck is wrong haha. Gonna try strap it up a little for the rest of the week while at work, did a shift last night and a few things I did made it really sore. I tried wrapping it but did it a bit too tight and it actually made it feel worse. Will also get on the Voltaren or something.

    Hamstring still not 100% either. Definitely feeling better but just some movements I can feel it is a little tight still. My goal is to start doing some stretches over the next few days, I haven't really been doing anything to it because I'm worried about making it worse but maybe it will help strengthen it. Never really had a hamstring injury before but gotta say they suck!

    Was weighing in around 95-95.5kg last few days but diet wasn't 100%. Did meal prep yesterday and stuck to it but maybe ate a little more than I should of but weight dropped down to 94.5kg so I think with consistent eating again I shouldn't blow out too much haha.

    Went to doctor yesterday and he said I've just pulled some ligaments in my wrist. Gave me a few days off work and told me to rest it, get a guard for it and some Voltaren gel. So guess I'll just see how it is Monday.. Not having a good time with injuries atm haha

    I honestly don't know how well those anti inflammatory gels go. It would have been better to get some Naproxen. I have lots of that lol. Injuries suck eh. I am in your boat presently. Injuries galore lol.

    I find voltaren gel to be pretty good.

    Mate you sure aren't having a good run with injuries of late, hope things come good for you.

    Cheers boys.

    Yeah dunno if the Voltaren gel is doing anything but I just want to get into the gym on Monday so I'm doing anything to make it better haha. Wearing this wrist guard seems a bit over the top because it's not the worst injury but like I said I just want to get back into it!

    Gonna do some stretching and stuff for my hamstring today too. Fingers crossed I'm ready to go Monday!

    Wrist still not 100%. Not gonna get anymore time off work, just gonna ask if I can do the easy stuff which shouldn't bother it. Hamstring also a bit tight still but I gotta get in and do something so thinking today after the dentist I will go in and just do some quads/calves. Thinking just some leg extensions, calf raises and then some lightish seated leg curl (if the machine is fixed) and maybe some leg press just to get my hamstring going away but not too heavy.

    Summary

    Very basic workout, can't really do much with a shitty hamstring and wrist haha. I didnt plan on starting with leg press and going too heavy but both leg extension machines were being used so didn't really have a choice. Definitely lost some strength cause those 300kg sets were pretty tough, but that's to be expected after no leg work for 4-6 weeks it feels like. Plan was to do some heavy leg extensions then lighter leg press just so it wouldn't do too much work to my hammy.

    Leg press was pretty solid though apart from being heavy, ROM was better than I thought probably 90% of the reps were hitting the bottom. Although once I got to the 300kg sets thats when I couldn't do it every rep. Second set was pretty tough too because someone was waiting for me to finish so didn't want to take too much time so rest time was only like 2 mins probably when I usually wait 3-4 minutes. Definitely notice it annoying my hamstring a bit but was mainly after I finished the set, not during it. Not feeling too bad atm though. It's pretty annoying it isn't feeling 100% by now, might just have to be one of those injuries that I steer clear of exercises that annoy it too much like Romanian deadlifts and maybe it will get better.

    Leg extensions were pretty good, definitely bit weaker but they felt good. Was getting a bit of cramping in my quads during both exercises, probably from not using them in a while! Finished with calf raises which again someone was waiting for and didn't end up doing many sets and last couple sets were low rest time.

    So yeah probably have to give my wrist the rest of this week too I'm guessing. Probably go in after work on Wednesday again and do some more leg work, might be the same stuff pretty much or maybe something different. Seated ham curl machine is still broken which is annoying but can also do lying leg curl, hack squat and maybe some bodyweight lunges.

    Diet today is pretty low in calories, but might be getting a Dominos pizza instead of bolognese which will boost it up a bit :p

    Oh and I'm going to be having one of those homemade juices every day from now on. Realised I need to get more veges in and having a juice in the morning is a good way and might even replace my morning coffee's if it gives me a good kick.
