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?
06-30-2008, 03:26 PM
Havoc/Epi is 6 weeks, 30/30/30/40/40/40
Lean X is for PCT
Sulb. powder is for my nootropic venture. I havd GABA, Sulb, Piracetam and some choline citrate. I was going to get PEA and L-tyrosine too, but i just wanna get the other underway.
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.

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.

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."

i question how accurate those articles are though. I think MD is the best BB'ing magazine out there, but all articles are ghost written though.

TEASER NON PUMP PICS!!!!
Im going to be cuttin grass tomorrow and hopefully get some good sun goin on. Then the GFs for the night, but legs and shoulders are friday and hopefully more pics then.
sorry its taking so long, dont mind the glare off my pal as$. No im not irish either, italian and german.
Head was down a bit to far, but back is def a strong point, look at the V....you know it!
I hate my side chest, one because i think my arms look small in it and 2 chest is a weak point for sure.

Your back is sick for sure brother. I wouldn't sweat the tan either bro. Just get some of the spray on sht. Lots of tanning places have the sunless mist tan now so you could just hit that up. It last like 2 weeks and cost about $20 so....
07-10-2008, 09:48 PM
Also, you look a lot bigger than I pictured haha, diesel back for 185 brother, legit. You might be onto something with the core thickness too, cause I am a deadlifting junking, 475 x 10 , and honest your back looks more impressive because it gets so narrow @ the bottom, my obliques just jut out to the side <sigh> Anyways, props keep it up, Resident Evil 4TW

In regards to tanning. Im going to try and get some natural base, its a must form everyone i read and talk too.
I have some Jan Tana competition tan and posing oil already.
I am going to be cutting it close on the bulk then cut. I was just trying to figure it out at work today. I wanna hit it hard soon, i may start my Mdrol/Havoc bridge soon, 2 on mdrol at 20/20 then 4 or 5 on havoc at 30/40/40/40 or 50
I wanna gain but not get messy, thats why im keeping the mdrol short, and due to my past gyno. I have a thread in the steroid section on that situation and am set on it.
Ill begin to carb cycle prolly early august, prolly 5 low-no carbs, 1 medium, 1 high.
Then 1 month out i will be basing my diet around the palumbo type. Moderate fats, high protein, low carbs and of course as with any, hope to eat at least 9 times a day....but i doubt it cause i have work....
IF all else faisl for this comp. I WILL be cutting down hard as i never have, and many say after its a great time to grow. Plus i have to know what works for me when i do compete.
I will be competing, wether this show or another one next summer.....or whenver. And youll know about it!
