One of my coworkers woke me up at 2am to tell me he's calling out because he's gonna be too hungover. I really hope its not busy today I'm already beat.
I can't be too mad, he's hooking me up with this roommate and she's pretty sexy. Win.By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

Completely unrelated but I'm excited about it: I will be co authoring a multi cross platform study on automated platelet counts and CD61 immunoassay for determining the rate of undertransfused patients. Im now spending my weekend at work to determine if the patients did not recieve pletelets when needed and if they had a bleeding episode or in did recieve a transfusion anyway. It will be published in two major medical journals. Nice resume booster for this entry level laboratorian.By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it.

So it's become clear that I can't hold my 1800-1900 cal range anymore or I'm gonna get sick - which is good, actually. At this point, 6 weeks out, I can say I'm feeling pretty good about where my physique sits and gonna slow down any fat loss as to not dip too deep just yet. Still not putting carbs back in although I'm starting to get cravings... but for weird ****! Not like danishes or pancakes but... like... maine lobster cream cheese and italian sausage. These Papa John's commercials look good too. Going to up the protein and fats intake to allow a 21-2200 calories range and see if I sit well there. Something tells me 2400 may be more appropriate but I'll take it slow in deciding.
Had a big leg day today. Black Cats v2 was huge with AX7: walk in with big boy swagger, fully engaged and pumping out sets of hammy curls like a machine. I haven't felt real motivated lately so this was a big change. I have to say I like this formula better as I prefer more mental focus and "feel good" energy over physical stims like geranium extract or crazy doses of caffeine. 1 is good for morning activity or getting ready for work, 2 is for when youre getting intense. I can see this being great for studying or those days you just know work is gonna suck. Gave two to my friend Jay who couldnt help but dance between sets to Kanye and Jay-Z on the radio... he's kinda quiet so I didn't get much verbally from him but he seemed to be in good with it.
Single bent over hamstring curls: 4x15x40
Lying hamstring curls: 4x15x80
Thigh adductor: 80 for 15, 2x15x90, 15x100 -> havent done these in a while so I didnt want to rip my groin apart
Thigh abductor: 80 for 12, 3x15x60 ->80 was too heavy for what I wanted to accomplish
Reverse lunges -> Toe touches w/ 20's : 4 sets 10/10
Seated calve raise: Time Under Tension: Pump reps 30 seconds, rest 1 minute, repeat 4 times
Lying Clave Raise: 360 for 15/12/12/10
Satind Calve Raise: 4x15x90
Bicep Barbell Curl: 4x30x40lbs -> just repping out... cheat if needed
Seated Dumbell Curl LAternating: 4x15x20's same as above.
Tomorrow I gotta work and just hit some cardio and abs. I'll pump calves a bit just to keep them working. They switched the computer monitors in the labs to be 42" HD flat screens as we don't use the microscopes much anymore now that we have Cellavision. Sick!!!!

Forgot how good it feels to dump out on Gut Health. Stocked up big time on it when hey had it for a Labor Day sale at $7/bottle. Started the loading phase yesterday.

I know what you mean. I just ran out of it for the first time in months and my "quality" has taken a big hit.Originally Posted by OrganicShadow

Note to self: whenever starting Gut Health after periods without it, start on a Thursday or any day knowing you'll have adequate bathroom time 2 days later. I've cleared out four times now and know I'm not done! I hope it doesn't interrupt watching the Olympia. Oh yeah, by the way, my man Kai Greene is gonna take it.Originally Posted by breezy11
Just gonna do 30min cardio and an ab circuit for a bit.

Gave her a good birthday. Magic Mike style. Out way too late last night. Good group of people but I should have expected that if the guy inviting me is gay 90% of the males there would be too. Whatever, odds were in my favor and it worked out just fine.Originally Posted by KingLeonidas9

Working midnight to four today. Here's part 2. Took hyper t2 a little before my 4egg breakfast and I'm feeling the thermogenics wow. I haven't used somethig like this in a while and forgot the kind of effects it gives off. 2 am, 1 in the afternoon but I probably won't do the second dose today because I'm trying to be asleep by 1700. No training today. Fasted all night, now try to get through the day.

Going midnight Monday till four PM wasn't too bad. I had time Sunday to rest and reserve energy to be up all night. Wasn't busy at work so not much running around. I resisted urges to eat and fasted till my normal feeding routine. Even the day shift wasn't so busy so it worked out.
Last night is what killed me. Now only on a collective 5 hours of sleep and working another midnight shift...and its busy. Overstimmed, underslept, underfed, you could argue underweight, overtired.... I had a hard time functioning and very dazed out. I was thinking about it: this is so bad for patients! Do you know how many people in hospitals work two jobs?! A lot of em two full time! After 10 hours of any one task your ability to perform is inevitably inhibited yet I know people who work 7 days a week 12-16 hours. Some pull 24 hour shifts. I'm scared to be a patient in hospitals.

Monday they helped me so much. Sitting in front of a microscope wasn't easy to keep awake and its not like I can have coffee hanging around a lab. Much easier to step out and pop some black cats.Originally Posted by KingLeonidas9

I have a new client just for legs. Well, I'm taking over split responsibility for his off season. Killed him. It got me revved up to blast through shoulders on minimum sleep.
Started Hyper T2 today. I'm.gonna dose Fat Free staggered so I know what each is doing and not get overdone. Also on my way for fasted bloodwork now.
10-03-2012, 02:28 PM
Note: don't take Fat Free and Hyper T2 together. Staggered works much better. I felt weird and kind of sickly, too much at once. Fat Free on awakening, Hyper T2 mid morning, Another Fat Free around lunch, Hyper T2 before training. This should be perfection on shedding off the extra midsection I'm still holding. At this point its just subcutaneous stubborn spots.
Now its my turn to hit legs. I'm taking my shake before workout now. Makes RPM waaayy more effective and mentally I feel better with the easy amino acid stream.

I have a new client for leg days. Well, he's one of my other teammates/trainers in my usual gym but he's trying to get his legs up this off season as he wants to compete. my trainer gave him to me to blast his quads 2x a week. Ohhh this kids gonna die. It's cool to workout with him though, I'll post pictures - he's got a great upper body but legs are soft. I like having an actual lifting partner for my leg days now.
Tomorrow is hamstring and back... Hmmm, deadlifts anyone?

Good luck with your new partner.

I like having a trainer but I love having a lifting partner. I haven't really had someone to train with since I was in college and he was they guy who got me into bdoybuilding. It's a good feeling.
