    I started mandatory posing daily. Breathing control is much easier now as I focused on my technique through the off season. I gonna see if I can find that video. Almost busted my ass trying for a sommersault. Didn't occur to me how ill I was until after my routine.

    I need to pick a song asap.... AN Promo?!?!?!

  2. Curious to see how you will look at the end of your cut. We are basically the same. 5'7 and usually 155lb and I've never been able to get a great body with my frame.
    Jersey right? If I'm around I just might drive down to the show to check it out, always wanted to go to a bodybuilding show but never had a chance. Good luck man!

  3. ^ Same. Usually I go for a "fuller" look but if I'm going in bantam I have to be absolutely shredded. Conditioning like that is very difficult for me (or anyone really) to achieve. It's in AC Friday/Saturday Nov 9th+10th. Winner of the open show on Friday competes in the pro on Saturday.

    Doing cardio in the AM this week. I'm a later shift 10-6 - I hate it. I lift real late and it kills my day for errand running during business hours. I'm moving some training days to weekends so I don't have to rush around so much. 3Z really helps me knock out at night though. I'm usually WIRED after training and can't get myself to settle down.

    Anyone who's interested in following that log standalone http://anabolicminds.com/forum/suppl...sports-3z.html

    Are you ready for N.O. UPTAKE? It's a game-changer!

    I'll be adding a few more supps into this log as I go. Uptake most certainly one of them come mid-October.
    Gonna introduce LeCheek HyperT2 and Drive next week to start amplifying things.
    Also bringing in the following overtime:
    ALCAR
    ALA-500
    Fat Free
    HGHUp
    Free Test
    Black Cats v2
    Vitamin C x3/daily with meals
    Chromium Picolinate 500mgx2 daily

    I'm gonna have Echinacea on hand as the weather changes to prevent getting sick when depleted. Mistake I made before.

  8. Solid workout man! How much rest between sets?

  9. Quote Originally Posted by CorpKiller View Post

    30 seconds. Objective is to get that 12-15 rep range, hit 15 early and slowly burn out over 4 sets. Those last two get tough and I start forcing reps in to get there even if it means taking breathers between reps.

    SHOULDERS/ABS
    Military Press (Front) - 95x2 14/12
    Military Press (Back) - 75x2 12/12 <This got tough
    Machine Overhead Press - 140x4 15/14/12/12
    Machine Shrugs - 180x4 15/15/13/12 <Hold for 3 seconds at the top.
    Barbell Raises - 70x4x15 < Blasted through these, felt great. Held at the top for 2-3 seconds.
    Reverse Machine Flyes - 90x2x13, 85x2 13/12 <Started getting tired, haven't used the machine in a while for this.
    Machine Torso Twist 75degree angle - 40x4x15 (Just going for the stretch)
    TMS Machine Abdominal Curl - 60x4x15
    Hanging Leg Raise - BWx4x20
    Side Crunch Alternating - 45x4x15 (Don't know how to call this, hold the 45 plate in one hand and lever the body to a side crunch)

    Wasn't as powerful of a lift as I usually expect, so tired from the busiest day I've had at work in some time. Cardio in the AM kinda drained me all day. I'll get used to it.

    PICTURE TIME! These were taken Monday after I cheated like hell this weekend. Not my best posing - felt so full and pumped. Looking in the mirror I loved how I looked. Back to depletion

  18. Im in here!!
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

  19. Quads/Biceps today. Today one of my co-workers started talking about "Ohh I want to have a brownie so bad but I'm trying to lose weight. I'm craving it. Have you ever craved something so badly that when you have it you feel like heaven."

    Blank face, half zoned out, monotone voice, without blinking I reply "You don't have the slightest clue." and return to my computer. The perpetual tired feeling is starting to settle in I'm gonna have to get used to it. Looks like Black Cats v2 is making it's appearance sooner that later! No complaints

    Another co-worker of mine gave me fresh bitter melon from her garden. Crazy looking stuff but the chef in me is excited to add this in. We got on discussion about health benefits and she's a big fan as being a diabetic. She didn't know why so I enlightened her on the AMPK pathway for carbohydrate uptake and insulin mimicry as bitter melon has 4 phytochemicals that work to increase AMPK secretion emulating muscle nutrient sensitivity similar to just finishing a workout. Here's some reading material:
    http://ac.els-cdn.com/S1074552108000...5ef86bb14e90ee
    Now, if only I could figure out how to cook this stuff! I'm thinking to just pickle it in vinegar and garlic.

    QUADS:
    Reverse Icarus Squat - 270x4x15
    Leg Extension - 70x4 15/12/12/14 <- I could go heavier but due to a knee injury I keep this light and just focus on peaking the top for 2-3 seconds. Almost blew my knee out in the off season so i take it easy here now. I've also fund some articles that recommend NOT going heavy for that reason. Now I just use it to pre-fatigue.
    Hack Squat - 155x4 15/13/13/12
    Leg Press - 360x2x20 <-ok, im dead

    BICEPS:
    Barbell curl - same idea to pump up with the 40 then over to 50x4x15.. cheating reps if needed till I meet quota.
    Standing Cable Curl - 50x4 15/14/14/14 <- not bad, I'll up the weight maybe
    Twin cable bicep curl - 30x4x20 <-- just repping out to get the stretch and focus at the top without banging my head

    DIET:
    1860 cal: 20g carbs, 130g fats, 148g protein - Sooooo tired. Just a couple more days.

    Off from work tomorrow. Gonna lift early for hamstrings, calves and abs. Have a lot of work to do with my trainer in the business. I need to write up a proposal for one of our investors and start working on my routine. Still taking suggestions for posing music - winner gets some N.O. Uptake
