    -if needle is having trouble going in. Twist syringe like a drill.
    -taking a shower will make the shot easier too.
    -if i have slin needles i would go in delt. Works just as well.
    What's the reason for freezing the needles?

    I use Poliquin's and I don't know what other to recommend outside of that since I haven't tried others. I like his approach with supersetting antagonistic exercises. It's been working well. How was leg day? I did legs this morning so I think we're on the same schedule.

    I had the monte Cristo meal at cheesecake factory today with fried potatoes and tomato slices and also a bowl of loaded baked potato soup. That meal alone is just under 3,000, the sandwich itself being 1700. Add in a protein shake and I'm headed to all you can eat sushi at 7:30...

    Hoping to be able to put away a shake or another meal before bed too.

    Not very clean but ill say it's my cheat day haha

    On the plus side, leg day is the worst. On the down side, the other days can be boring. I add in other stuff (usually ab-specific) on the other days. Good luck on 6K cals Holmes. That's a ton and I can't put away 6K in good conscience on any day. Crazy.

    For me personally I've never had a high bf %. "Knock on wood". I've dont really have an issue with staying lean. Im sure genetics plays a big role as even my dad had a six pack when I was growing up.

    I will say though that I just got back from all you can eat sushi followed by boba tea and ice cream and I feel like one fat piece of worthless chub. Tomorrow will be back to lean meat, oats, pasta, and potatoes with extra calories coming from milk and peanut butter.

    Oh by the way my buddy has a girlfriend who needs pushed down a flight of steps and she made some dumb comment at dinner and I felt like I was going to pile drive her through the rainbow roll. Good to know my test is working

    Hey man I know that feeling coming up short on cals because of work and school. I would suggest counting your calories with my fitness pal and if you're coming up short for calories throw in some milk, ice cream, or cheese.

    Yeah I use whole milk and peanut butter to get my calories there but I would much rather eat 500cals in red meat than a PB&J. I'm really trying to eat my macros/calories versus drink them.

    I agree. I do the same. I honestly can't eat more than like 2-3 lbs meat a day. (Not to mention the cash) additionally for my bedtime casein shake I will use peanut butter AND organic extra virgin cocoanut oil. I take a nice spoon full dump it in a Pyrex and throw it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Now that its in liquid form it mixes very well and cocoanut oil doesn't turn bad after heated like olive oil. The natural peanut butter I use is all natural no additives. No sugar,no palm oil... Only peanuts. Not as creamy as normal peanut butter. It's texture is more watery/thinner. I gotta be careful it doesn't run off my rice cakes and end up on my shirt or something.

    Madds the nicest thing about fitness pal is that if you have the app on your phone, you can just scan the UPC code on the thing you're eating, or just search the database for what you're eating and it will tell you how many calories/ and the exact macros. It really makes thing simple

    Also in your shakes you can throw in egg beaters for more protein, oatmeal, peanut butter, and fruits for higher cals

    I've mentioned it to a couple of people before and I feel like a broken record but...
    If you throw an avocado into a smoothie/shake and blend it comes out super creamy, the taste is gone and it adds 250 calories per avocado plus a ton of essential fats.
