  3. yes, it's more coconutty than coconut oil it seems, made from whole pulp, seems to be a bit more pliable than oil when in solid state.
    (ie - you can actually scoop a measured tbs up fairly easily)
    nice to have addtl fat options at hadn when i'm creating shakes.
    i say thumbs up.

    no chance to train yesterday..won't get to today either.


  4. finally got to work out today..clean & press was very cool (very draining tho!)

    weight at 204.2 upon rising..
    backed up the insane cal day with more 5k days, turned it into a full-on gain week..
    not the brightest thing to do tho - increasing cals at the simultaneous onset of reduced/nill activity.
    however - end result (ie moving the scale) was accomplished.

    We as bodybuilding fanatics tend to forget that we grow when we rest. Even though we know it in our heads our hearts say otherwise. I bet you had plenty of needed recovery happening and most of those calories went to taking care of just that. If not nothing a 24 hour fast wouldn't clean up without any muscle loss.

  6. Hey snags glad u were able to get a workout in my man. I agree with Kleen I'm sure you reaped the rewards of your rest.

    Another note, I'm sure you covered this but I'm feeling lazy lol, how many meals/how often do u eat? Also I see u eat a bit of lunch meat, is this pre packaged, deli cut etc? Do u care about sodium content at all. Incorporating lunch meat would be huge for me. I pretty much eat angus beef, tilapia, chicken and chicken sausage. Gets effing old. Any insight would be great.

  7. ha....i eat like every 2, 2.5 sometimes every three hrs (i start going bonkers if i go much beyond 3.5hrs - my kryptonite, if you will.)
    as for lunchmeat - most of the meat i get is from the deli. but - they been having good sales on oscar meyer deli pckaged meat and i been getting some of that..
    no, sodium is of no concern to me at all.
    hahahaa i'll ninja edit this a lil bit more..i usually combine deli meat of whatever source, with equal (or more) portions of superior meat such as ground turkey breast or lean beef, maybe tuna..

    I'm the same way, I tried IF/lean gains hated it! Beyond 3-3.5 hrs I go crazy lol.

    What types of lunch meat do u stick to? I personally love ham, and roast beef, not a turkey fan. Just picking your brain bud ill shut up if need be

  9. I agree with Snags unless you have high blood pressure sodium is not even a concern and even then with the amount of sweet potato and bananas that get taking in the sodium is not tipping the electrolyte balance in a negative way. People are far to sodium conscious. I like some deli / sandwich meats myself it is a great way to add that extra couple ounces of meat to an otherwise lacking dish.

    nice bench/bent row session this day..kept the bench at decline again and did bench at that angle instead of flat.

  14. I love decline bench. I seem to get a great contraction with it.

  15. SUN 10-21
    arms (decline close grip/standing bb curls)

    MON 10-22
    off

    TUE 10-23
    flat bench/bent-row combo today..solid session, went a bit heavier than last week

    WED 10-24
    legs/shoulders

    getting things back on track, ducked out to a casino SUN late morning..came back MON afternoon, went to see Looper with my son and ex..work has been picking up too, so not a lot of time to post.

    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.

  18. Liked him in 50-50 too

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

  20. 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.

    i mean i was strong, i was energetic, joints felt good..
    aaaaand it was arm day.
    well, got a good one in, did a lil extra isolation bi work in the form of 21s (preacher curl setup)..did some abs too..

    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!

  28. 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

  29. Ketchup!!!

  30. 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)
