Yea its been awhile but got time still before things get to crunch time.
Been doing good with all my supplements. Stayin full and feelin good through the day, just try to keep a good flow of carbs and protien going.
Works been making it tough but i bring my Xtend and drink it there throughout the day.
No planned cycles as of now.
Feelin strong though with just the previous mentioned stuff...
one of my favorite quotes though when i see guys throwin weight around is by Victor Martinez...(something like) "I would rather sacrifice weight than form..."
Its all about contraction and targeting the muscle at hand.
Thats my insight of the day, haha.
06-03-2008, 08:59 PM
I've had to learn as well to lower my weight up my reps and pull strict form. It feels good to feel the burn!
06-04-2008, 08:31 PM
Music...cant figure out how i wanna go.
I been thinkign of anything.
Rick Ross- on a track lil wayne has some nice deep lines. Appropriate for sure.
Disturbed-Prayer, but i would edit to slow it down.
I havent a clue really.I want something moderatly slow, but not to classic like the older 70s-80s guys use to pose to....any ideas?
My GF said maybe a sinatra song buti dont listen to him and dont think it would fit well.
Rememebr these 2 shows are hugeand attention is what i need but dont wanna look like some rap lovin punk.
06-05-2008, 04:32 PM
FCUK RAP!!!!!! Go with Metal!! You want something slower then WTF Tool, perfect circle, stone sour, ext,ext not all metal is fcukin speed freak sht you know.......lol Or even some Cash, Petty, Willy, IDK not rap though dawg!!
06-05-2008, 05:18 PM
haha, im undecided still, i might try to mix something up. If its rap it wont be that lame biotches and hoes stuff. Itll have a point. Same if i pick rock/metal.
I was thinking, In Flames, one of their slow ballads or musical tracks....FUKCIN LOVE THOSE GUYS!!!

In all honesty dawg this is when you should push through......when times get tough. The comp and everything else you achieve thru hardship will mean that much more.
My 2 cents
06-23-2008, 04:00 PM
thanks everyone for the words. Allergies hit hard so i stopped taking anything but the basics. I am back at it hard now, feeling good. Im still going to diet down and everything, itll be a last 3 week decision prolly.
Planning a havoc cycle soon.
06-24-2008, 12:18 AM
Today was ok. Im back to eating like a mofo, not being to picky, just keepin the fat down.
I really wanna bring up my quads, i feel great when they are pumped and feel like there is some good speration in there. I need to work on the inner though(tear-drop shape)
Still need to bring up my chest a good amount. Other than that i felt good today.
I have an all morn work schedule all week so i have no issues gettin my lazy as$ in the gym

Maybe incorporate some DC stretches after quads. A few of my buddies do this and says it helps. I mean it can't hurt (only while stretching )

Today im doing chest and a little quads/hams. Then tris.
Tomorrow im hitting bis and shoulders and then take 2 days off.
Its just weird cause if i dont time everything right or do to much i seem to lose my "pump"/full feeling....then i get upset and frustrated.

ALRIGHT JIVE TURKEYS!!! haha just kiddin(from Semi-Pro)
I hurt my back 2 days ago at work, dont ask how, it was one of those freak things and ridiculously upsetting to me...
SO, im feeling good now. Im going to hit chest and bis, just to give the back a break, its feeling fine though.
I am drinking more Green Tea starting today cause i need to get off these energy drinks!
Im planning a MDrol/Havoc/Epistane cycle pending ideas and advice i get form the people in that section...
The GHRP is going good, feel full for most of the day. Im basically trying to bulk one more time hard and then slowly start to lean out...using what ever i have. Lots of greens, lots of GH help at night, Clen, BCAAs, protein, low carbs....its goin to be gettin serious!
Im not happy with my weight( 188lbs) but not gettin to fatty at all.

Your going to love havoc. Whats the dose plan?
What is your plan with the Lean Ext? I used a bottle once and was highly disappointed. Even with what I thought were symptoms of high cort...
Also whats the plan with the Sulbutiamine powder?

Havoc/Epi is 6 weeks, 30/30/30/40/40/40
Lean X is for PCT

I need a good memory brain focus stack, with out stims for school. But i want something to help relax and enjoy on the weekends, get me through work.
07-02-2008, 11:31 PM
OK so theres good and bad....kind of
Good- Got a camera off ebay, waiting for it, thenill have pics, estimated 1 week.
I feel good. Full. eating alot still
Bad- For some reason my legs were horrid today. I felt weak and uncomfortable opening with squats. Leg extensions were not good, hamstring curls sucked. Poor leg day for me...
Also, not sure if they were just tired or what but they were burning and got tired quick so i think i just had a hard pump going.
other than that things are solid. not sure yet when i plan to start to cut.

I read in another post you dont deadlift correct? B/c of waist size?
I've noticed some issues with my waist size even after dropping fat maybe b/c I deadlifted A LOT in my early training years...

This is correct. I used to deadlift like no ones business. I love back days and working it it general.
I hit a 405 dead at i think 18yrs old at 180lbs.
I can hit 405x2 now but i dont dead casue yes, i feel like it does tribute to my blocky waist. I have wide hips aleady. Im going to continue to dead until i decide to cut though. Not every back day, every other. Only 4 sets never over 75% max. I really do love my WO without them tho. Not as drained.
Today is back day....cant wait.
07-03-2008, 06:22 PM
I agree with this. I used to do deads all the live long day for the first year or two I started lifting and it for sure, definitely, 100% made my hips/core bulky looking. Not good. So I work around them now doing them here and there on the smith at 3/4. Seems to help IMO.
07-03-2008, 11:55 PM
just dropping in. I recall reading somewhere that a pro was talking about cutting deadlifts 8 weeks from a show or something to that degree to let their waist come down.
I usually do my deads at the end of my workout so I don't pull quite as much weight. I agree with you on the thicker waist bit.
I want to keep my lower back strong enough to support my upper body but not to the point where it overwhelms my waist size.
I'll try those exercises that you told me.
Here's a tweaked version of the dumbbell row.
When you pull back, pull towards your hip and as you are pulling slightly twist your wrist so the top points outward. Not to the point where you are palms up, but just a slight twist and sorta tuck your elbow back when you pull.
I notice it hits my outer lat more.
07-04-2008, 12:59 AM
There was just an article in the July MD about a pro who has never done deads. It was like an 8 page (doesn't hlep much most are in the ADagizen. ) He does hyperextentions with some weights at the end of his workouts.

After I hurt my lower back, my friend who only trains chest,arms,abs was like:
"See, that's the reason why I don't do squats or deadlifts. It's cuz I don't want to hurt myself."
