I am thinking surgery would be the only answer and I can't justify that.
    Too true. (and of course, as I get older that fear is a worry for me as well)
    You can do many things to slow to progression of age-related issues, but bottom line is: you cannot beat Father Time forever.
    And each of us face our own genetic time clock, further impacted by things even the best of intentions cannot control.

    ekk..you're depressing me this morning, DW.

    A long way away for you... and you'll be fine with it when you get there, I am plenty happy with me physique and who I have become. Limitations are part of life, can't smash them all but we make our mark trying and I will never stop doing that...

    ohhh I see another old fugger quote there

    Golden quote.
    (not age-related golden, but rather value-related golden, my friend.)
    Getting older and comfortable with yourself is..priceless.

    Here's the quote revamped a bit...

    "Getting older is a reality we all have to live with. I am plenty happy with my physique and who I have become. Limitations are part of life, can't smash them all but we make our mark by trying ..." Old Fugger...

  9. END WEEK #1
    15 WEEKS OUT FROM SHOW


    Interesting first week..

    Weight: 191.5 this morning, seems to be stabilizing a bit toward the last part of week..down 6lbs total first week, @4k cals daily. Diuretic effect from clean dieting+increased water intake, even at gross caloric excess, has been nuts.

    Strength: Tough to gauge definitively at this point, since I'm coming into prep from a "down" mode. Things have progressed very well to this point, and I am very pleased with overall strength, considering where I am at this point in time.

    Stamina: Well, still a ways to go..not even close to where my normalcy lies yet.

    Libido: Couple days ago, started noticing an increase in desire and sensitivy..

    Drive: This has been fantastic. Now, of course I am ready to get cracking from all the rest I've had in prior months leading up to this, but there is definitely no hesitation or "blah" feeling when it comes time to hit the weights.

    Recovery:This has been surprisingly good..figured I'd be sore as hell with the increased activity, but, other than legs being a tad tender after mauling them with ATG squats the other day (and tennis day before that -- normal soreness), I've felt very refreshed at all times.

    I will be better able to gauge these things going forward, when things like muscle memory and acclimation to accustomed usual activity level out. So far, I do feel an impact on all these things from the AMv3..I just can't finger the full effect at this point.

    And, I am not at full speed yet. Just like diet and training will change as we progress, so too will my intensity and effort.
    For now, I am very pleased. I have even accepted the fact that I will lose a lil weight, take a "step back" so-to-speak on size, before I will move forward. Clean dieting and increased activity level are all skewing the landscape right now.

    OVERALL RATING, WEEK 1: To quote the late, great James Brown:
    I feel good.

    wow this is going to be nuggin futs, you already look pretty good 15 weeks with the muscle memory and anabolic s kicking in ... wow...

  13. Thanks fellas. Lookin good tho? mmmm, relative statement, I guess.
    (I felt a lil silly slipping into the posing trunks @15 weeks out and in this shape)
    But, I feel good, I see the changes in myself, and I feel primed to really start making some rapid (and I do mean, rapid) progress.
    Once this stuff really starts kickin in, things are gonna get wild I feel..

    BTW - the shades were not me tryin to be cool. It was an inside joke to Matt Porter. >>>

    As for the food pics: nothing really sexy, altho the kabobs were kinda hot.
    Just a means to an end.
    Here's the same meal roughly, macro-wise, just a few carbs added in form of croutons..no need to cut them out yet.

    I awoke this morning feeling like, well, an animal.
    To this point, all pics have been taken cold.

    And like I always said, Doug - your support means a lot to me.
    Your ability to inspire others, from the example you set in your training to the insight you provide behind the scenes, is incredible.
    Thank you.




    Okay..will keep the updates fairly narrowed to w/e from here on out for awhile, but did want to mention couple things that popped up yesterday:
    #1 - a zit! (haven't seen one of them for awhile)
    and
    #2 - some serious night sweats last night. Ugh.

    Can't all be roses in this journey I guess, eh?

    Small nusances indeed..felt they were worth mentioning tho.

  22. Do you think the sweats are just from the increase in tempo you just started? I know that if I really crush myself from let's say a leg workout that day I sweat pretty good that night. Or do you think it's the supplements?

    And I have always been jealous of the way his pecs look like they are just glued to his sternum!

  23. WTF ---- you look 6 weeks out not 15 !!!

    Seriously --- you will be able to grow a bit, get super lean , have super high carb days --- perhaps cheat meals etc..... this is a VERY GOOD POSITION TO BE IN!!!!

    BTW --- love the shades

  25. @ AZMIDLYF - hmm, interesting point you bring up. I been hitting it hard for sure, but I have to attribute the sweats to hormonal action..pretty certain.

    @ Matt - Well, I don't know how to "cheat" in prep mode, dude. Never done it.
    Earlier today, I did decide to tweak the diet a smidge, added in 200 extra cals (clean cals) on my first OFF day since I started, so ~3800 today.
    Training days will be ~4200cals now. Kinda blowing up my (so I thought) well-laid out dietary plan.
    I always wondered how it would feel to be in this position, instead of trying to catch-up cuz I wanted to do short (10, 12 week) preps only.
    Learning curve, my man!

    @ DW - thank you!
