    chicken breast is good too.

    solid workout today - if one can get excited over doing arms.
    the decline close-grip bench presses kept things interesting, and i didnt get too crazy on bb curls..
    good day.

    the next month of the plan looks like this:

    A1) Bench Press
    A2) Bent Over Rows

    Tuesday (Calves, Legs, and Shoulders, 5x5, 2 mins rest, load 5RM)
    A1) Leg Press
    A2) Calve Press in Leg Press
    B) Clean and Press from Floor

    Wednesday (Biceps and Triceps, 10x3, 45 sec to 1 min rest, load5RM)
    A1) Decline Close Grip Bench Press
    A2) Barbell Curls

    Thursday OFF

    Nice, I get better contraction out of declines myself. As a matter of fact on the EMG I think it is shown to be the best contraction for chest, that and Flat DB bench. My best chest contraction other than crossovers of course if the Hammer Strength Decline. I get SICK almost painful contraction there.

    How was Looper? I am liking the look of it and Bruce Willis and the guy playing him as him young self are great actors. I forget the younger guys name but I have liked him ever since Third Rock from the Sun.

    I liked Looper if it matters.

    I love sci-fi stuff though and Joseph Gordon Levitt has been doing some good movies lately.

    You ever try banded decline, or hammer strength decline? Talk about contraction.

    Yeah that is what I said was my best contraction over all. Well that and cable cross overs. Which is almost the same movement. I love them. Of course Snags works out at home so he doesn't get to play with the Hammer Strength much if at all.

    Banded Hammer Declines? Thought you just meant regular, my bad(or maybe it was the way I worded my post..lol). Bands definitely give them a new twist.

    Man the work pose makes it so blatantly obvious how massive of a shoulder to waist ratio you have! I see the difference in BF but you still look great and big! Maybe even Great Big!

    another nice workout session this day..feeling really full, getting some lines back..

    FRI - off
    SAT - chest/back
    SUN - arms/abs

    on the downside:
    TRS is coming to an end.




    nothing really new or special here, but - an example of reigning in the dietary discourse.
    meals are a bit smaller, and numerically have have dwindled by 1 at this point..



    5oz lean beef, ketchup & mustard
    7oz sweet potato, salt & pepper
    couple cups veggies
    (not pictured, 1 scoop shake myofusion cinnamon roll flav)
    ~500cals here, meals are smaller and not as frequent, intake goal for day ~3850 ON days/~3350 OFF days

    lol. ketchup does not make regular appearances at my establishment, to be sure....
    i find it refreshing every once in awhile - esp with some drier lean ground beef.


    absolutely fantastic training session this day as i enter 3rd week of format..strength was great, drive was high, no injury issues or soreness -- felt good! as mentioned, TRS is done now, so supplement use now looks like this for awhile:
    multi
    fish oil
    Axon
    cissus
    super pump max


    foods used
    protein: lean beef, tuna, chicken breast, turkey breast, deli cuts, cottage cheese, protein powders (mostly isolates)

    fats: whole eggs, butter, heavy whipping cream, coconut butter, almond butter,peanut butter, raw almonds, coconut/almond milk

    carbs: potatoes, oats, black beans, jasmine rice, brown rice syrup, honey, 15-grain bread, pineapple, sierra mist & various low-fat cereals (postWO)

    sadly, in response to the goings on at Primordial, my log will end here.
    (kinda hard to have a Primordial off-season when there is no company)

    best to Eric, Matt, the reps and everyone at the company going forward..

    as for me, i will regroup and keep doing my thing.

    see ya around the boards.
