All they know is you look way better than he does Weight means nothing in bodybuilding, David Henry is a perfect example of that. When you stop seeing results and fat loss, start playing with the macros, take out a little carbs from each meal. Start low like 5-10g, wait another week and see what happens, and keep repeating that process until 2 weeks out. Then "peaking" is whole other animal lol.

  3. Ok it was slow at work, so I was able to get my leg workout in...

    I dont have a squat box so squatting would be free and dangerous, so legs is difficult to train, any suggestions im up for....

    squats free weight 200 reps
    lunges free weight 100 reps

    30 minutes of cardio after words....

    I have been feeling lethargic a little.... not sure why.... I have been sleeping more than usual....
    I have been taking alot more stimulants than usual.... epi on a pulse wouldnt already be making me feel lethargic.... I dunno.... might have to increase water intake.... or increase milk thistle....

  4. Work was slow once again so.... guess im working out.....

    even with a fat burner and a 12oz sugar free red bull, I had no energy.... not sure why... I was going to do heavy deadlifts, but felt like I was going to hurt myself....

    30 minutes cardio

    I dont know whats going on, Im loosing my focus and the,dedication is fickle.... I guess this is all part of the prep work....

  11. Good to hear you're feeling better man!

    Well, my mom had a heart attack last week. She's doing better now but was in the hospital for a few days and has had appointments she needs to go to and. They don't wan her driving and walking around in the 105+ it's been for the past 2 weeks. So trying to keep up with my training & diet has been stressed to the max. Diet hasn't waiverd but my training has, I've missed a few cardio sessions, along side a few workouts.

    im glad shes doing better man...that can be tough.... I hope& pray her recovery is 100%...
    yeah I have noticed that since I started throwing in the cardio 30 min to an hour after wormouts... ends up making my workouts so much longer lol.... im not used to it...

  13. Thanks, they're much appreciated. The hours add up, I'm at about the 3hr mark per day now. Keep working hard man, you're doing great!

    im feeling pretty good... besides the stimulants that are killing my stumach... which I cant back off right now...
    im going to sneak away from work and workout at the gym, and lay in the tanning bed.... im excited! workout in a regular gym... been a while....
    my flex posing suit came in.... that suckers revealing! major banana hamock.... I tried it on and took me a.minute to get used to....

    Are you on eca? I've never had stomach problems with it, but I remember trying hot roxs and it messing with my stomach... Dmaa makes me feel weird too, and kills my hunger, but I'm super sensitive to any appetite suppresion. Even var made it hard to eat.

    Haha ya they're pretty revealing, its basically a speedo right?

    Anyways my body builder buddy had gotten sick and hospitalized, gone from 245 to 170 in about 4 weeks. It was crazy, I was bigger than him. Well I hadn't seen him in like 3 months and he's back up to 220 and talking about competing again soon. All this talk about competing is kinda sparking my interest too.

    my foot is all swollen... not sure why... kinda hurts.... eh its barable though... its the top of.my right foot and kinda to the left of it in the middle... tried googling it... cant find anything cept sprain maybe...

  21. Were you jump roping or jogging a lot? There's two things that can happen that aren't sprains - hyper extentension of the tendons in your foot and cracks in the long little bones(medicarprils?). Either way you're going to want to take it easy on your foot so switch to a low impact cardio like a bike...

  22. sounds good.mani havebeen wrapping it alot... and have been running alot... prob is a sprain.... thanx man
    I have a bike at work. ill use that...

  23. ok fellas.... I screwed up.... I think from work and working out... I'strained my back now... my lower back is killing me!!! im not quiting though... this might set me back dangit.... what do I do... I need to go get some fishoil and go for 10 g daily.... might help.... advice please.... what do I do to get through this and make it to my competition....

  24. I've been pting my back with light high rep squats, lunges, and one legged deadlifts.

  25. yeah... I tried to do leg extensions and leg curls at least... but even that hurt it... im even having a hard time getting inand out of my truck... jeeesh.... this isnt good... ill see how tomorrow is... maybe all my back needs is rest...
