The Primordial Off-Season Adventure of Snags (V2.0 of course)

Page 4 of 18 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. feeling nice and swole after a cheat day yesterday (yes i said day, not meal or window)..
    after a solid usual ~600cal breakfast and then a 600cal protein bar+MuscleMilk RTD for my second feeding (both of those being a rarity for me, but i needed something quick and on the fly), i ended up at the Hibachi Grill Supreme Buffet.
    oooooooooooooo man....an hour later (and 4 heaping plates worth of tasties such as general tso's chicken/sweet&sour chicken/baked whitefish/baked salmon/fried crab/stuffed crab/stuffed shrimp/butter mushrooms/green beens/and of course some crab rangoon ) i was done..
    until, about 3hrs later when i was hungry again. anyway, i won't detail what all i had from there on out, but it was a "free day" to say the very least (altho, i did finish up the day with a nice protein shake pre-bed ahaaa).
    dint gain as much o/n as i thought i would, only ~3.5lbs, weight at 194.1 upon rising (and before bowel movement of course ).
    ran FTP for training (fasted training protocol), a bcaa+liquid hydrolyzed protein driven session..decided to do chest this day and hit legs over the w/e. and so, it was a hybrid session like this:

    7min cardio warm-up
    5x5 flat DB bench press (2min rests)
    3x8 DB squeeze press (1:45 rests)
    4x15/12/10/8 BB incline press (bar touching collarbone in eccentric position, pause; 1:30 rests)
    5 sets abs
    15min cardio (10min HIIT/5min cooldown)

    was nice session..followed with ~700cal breakast ~20min later.

  2. I strayed a bit as well last night. Let's just say there was some cinnamon bread,almond butter,and honey involved. My 8yr old daughter twisted my arm pretty hard. Lol I have a brutal back workout today so this will be put to good use.

    That buffet sounds like a dream big guy.

    your kids always sound so ferocious AZ.

    and yeah - not a fan typically of buffets, but this one was top-shelf..clean, quality, lots of variety (of course they had sushi bar & hibachi grill there too; i don't do sushi, and at night/dinner they have a bit more fare like new york strip steak cooked to taste right in front of you, etc..will go back for dinner time one of these days for sure).
    what i had tho was absolutely scintillating.
    i highly recommend this joint, no hesitation.

  4. back to the diet..a lil 525cal early afternoon snack.



    1pk tuna creations (~175cals)
    couple rice cakes (~90cals)
    protein shake (~260cals)
    cals will end up ~3500 this day, lower in carbs & fats than usual but not stringently so.
    tomorrow i'll be eating out at Ruby Tuesday, it's where my son wants me to take him for his birthday meal, so gotta be on point diet-wise today and sunday.

  5. yesterday's training:
    combined quads/hams/calves for traditional leg day in AM, also got ~1.5hrs of tennis later in PM.

    8x8 BB box squats
    8x8 BB rack RDLs
    5x10-12 BB calf raises off step

    solid session - these heavy weights are feeling both super good and also catching up with me..
    awoke this morning sorer than a mugged wino.
    still gonna get some bi/tri/abs in this day, and mow my yard this afternoon..tomorrow is off day.
    this will be the 3rd day in a row i've ran fasted training upon rising - don't know how much longer i'll do it and you'd think it is contradictory in a lean bulk phase, but i am really seeing some great short-term results from it offsetting my one heavy cheat day (consumed 3500cals the next day, ~4300 yesterday, target is ~4k this day).

  6. couple shots of the pissed off pythons following training.
    pump was great, wiped out definition for now but i'm swole.







    update on the upcoming cycle:
    decided on Utradrol/Trenazone stack, planned kick-off is ~September 22 or 29th (haven't decided yet).
    also picked up some Axon (stimulant from Antaeus Labs), looks pretty cool..will be trying that one soon.
    gonna be some fun times coming up fellaz.

  7. That stack should bring some crazy size/strength gains. Really interested in the AXON being run as well. I have had my eye on it but had not read much feedback as of yet. Their Demiurge also has me curious.

    yes their products are intriquing for sure.
    with that stack, i think i'll be able to ZOOM past the 200lb mark quicker than i had planned, while concurrently staying as lean as i want..
    Axon just looks kewwwl.
    EDIT: forgot to add - i have NEVER received something in such ridiculously quick fashion before..
    placed my order early Thursday morning, like ~1am..received it USPS on Saturday.
    WOW


    oh - forgot to add what breakfast/postWO meal looked like today..
    had some fun with it, fit in a Butterfinger candy bar that accounted for
    ~270 of my 725cals total
    ~11g fat of my 15g total
    ~48g carbs of my 100g total
    (oat bran and grapefruit accounted for other carbs..also added 4 egg whites+30g hydrolyzed isolate)
    the Butterfinger was a remnant from my son's b-day party yesterday - kinda like you & your kids AZ, my arm was twisted and i was forced to partake.
    was an interesting feeding.
    following with a solid meal in ~2hrs.

  9. 200lbs should flash buy in a blink and the gains will be lean with your food discipline. That is crazy fast shipping compared to some other sites. 8(
    I also fell again last night...had a birthday party to go to and some cake was involved. Some yardwork today in 102 degrees and low carb day should clean that up nicely. Lol

  10. that nice solid meal i told you was coming next..



    5oz 96% lean beef w/ slice of American cheese
    8oz sweet potato
    couple generous handfuls veggie medley
    (not pictured: 3 slices deli smoked turkey breast, 1 scoop protein shake in 8oz almond milk)
    ~610cals total

    BOOM!

  12. Man my cals can go up now going to be smooth ride now... here's my PCT log ...

    PCT Time, from a long run ...PCT Black, Crea-Trona, Pure Test...
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  13. dinner last night..

    5oz 96% lean beef
    3oz chicken breast chunks
    2oz deli smoked turkey breast
    120cal salad (used some bleu cheese dressing this time)
    (not pictured, dessert: 5 white cheddar rice cakes)
    ~675cals




    on tap for today, brewing up some almost-fat-free chili.
    20oz turkey breast
    2 cans Bush's kidney beans
    1 can Red Gold tomato juice
    total cals on this feast (not counting the added onions/jalapenos/banana peppers - i never count veggies in my totals) is ~1600, with a breakdown of 160g carbs/270g protein/8g fat.
    i will prolly get 5 meals out of this, adding in some other fare to complete the feeding.
    off the top - i know one meal today will be a bowl of this + a MetRX colossal brownie.

    cals targeted for ~3500 this off day.

  14. That chili has an incredible macro balance.
    Just inject.

  15. That turkey breast is perfect for that. I find that you really have to have some strong flavoring with it or it tends to be pretty dry. Thrown into a chili mix is made to order for it.

    for sure.
    not too many things you can make - and still have taste this incredible - that match it.

    bingo.
    i still eat my share of breast patties, but if i'm eating them sans bread/cheese then i'm throwing that dijon w/chardonnay over it liberally..does the trick just fine.

  17. Love making some lean chili with Turkey. Always enjoy making up a huge pot that will last awhile....or just a day.

  18. Subbing then will come back and read and enjoy the food porn!

    (i did share couple bowls with someone tho)

    welcome aboard, and enjoy man.

    on a random note:
    i just donated plasma for the first time in my life this evening..figured it was time i do my part.
    as many who know me know - i am not a fan of needles AT ALL. took some nads for me to get myself in there.
    wasn't so bad - but that saline solution they give you at the end to rehydrate you, was friggin COLD!
    left me in shivers for a good 40min afterwards..had to turn on the heater in the car for the drive home.
    (and i am not a guy who gets cold easily)

  20. breakfast this morning, a lil smaller cuz i'll be up longer today, hence need to space nutrients out longer as my preference..



    5oz 96% lean beef
    1 whole egg/2 whites
    1 slice Ezekiel cr w/ 1/2 tbs butter
    1 cup corn flakes w/ 5oz almond milk
    grapefruit
    ~565cals total

    i'm also checking out the Axon here this morning for the first time..will give some feedback on it later -- after i decide what workout will be today (either #3/back or #4/shoulders in the 'planned rotation' that's been a guideline but nothing more)..
    tennis match planned for this evening as well, coming to the end of tennis pretty dang soon.

  21. was good training session today..decided on hitting the back, will follow with shoulders/hams/abs tomorrow.

    7min cardio warm-up
    3 sets pull-ups (no weights, used this as warm/stretching move)
    3x8 bent BB rows
    3x10/8/6 seated pulleys, D-grip attachment
    4x8/8/6/6 1-arm DB rows
    6x8/8/8/6/6/6 rack deads
    7min cardio cooldown

    upper back was sufficiently exhausted..lower back was HUGELY pumped, went heavier on these than i have in a very long while.
    couple (goofy) pics of the back, can't take these pics very good myself.
    will have better 3rd-party shots going forward, but these will work as sneak peeks for now until i really start adding some weight/muscle.
    as noted, the pump in lower back obscured all definition (not that i have a bunch there anyway, as lower back is one of my current weaknesses)







    Axon was sufficient today - i only took 2 caps with breakfast to assess, started feeling it shortly after finishing the meal, full kick-in prolly ~45min following. wasn't anything overly 'stimmed out' which is not what i'm looking for, so that's good..do think i need to go up to 3 caps tho.
    energy was good thruout training, no lull or letdown..seems to be long-lasting for sure.

  22. on a roll with these food pics.
    postWO meal - which came 1hr following postWO shake of ~525cals (85g c/35g p/5g f)

    2oz deli chicken breast on lightly toasted Ezekiel w/ slice of american cheese
    1 pck Starkist sweet & spicy tuna creations
    couple handfuls veggie medley
    ~450cals total


  23. what a nice tennis match it was.
    time got moved up to 4p, and it was on..
    first set i got down 2-0 out the gate, got in my groove then and won 5 straight games to go up 5-2..only to see my opponent come back and tie it up 5-5. then, a break and a hold and i took the first set 7-5. second set i was up 3-1 when my opponent retired.
    couple shots after the match - feeling just nice and swole. these will be the last pics till i break the 195lb mark, was at 191.8 upon rising this morning.





    and, allow me to refresh my initial opinion of Axon. i have had nice, even, consistent energy all day long - no letdown, including all thru tennis and even right now..no kidding when they say long-lasting energy, WOW.

  24. maybe i should take a break on da food pics for awhile too....
    been awhile since i made stir-fry, and i was a lil rusty..tastes incredible, looks leave a lil to be desired.

    3oz chicken breast chunks + 5oz albacore tuna
    broccoli/cauliflower/carrots made in 1 tbs light olive oil, seared w/ a bit of lemon juice
    over a 3/4 cup bed of brown rice
    ~600cal total


  25. another great training session..
    fueled by 2 Axon caps w/ breakfast again (was up till 130a and still wasn't tired from 2 caps yesterday, so figured i better stick with 2), breakdown went like so:

    breakfast ~635cals (80g c/45g p/15g f)

    training
    7min cardio warm-up
    4x6 standing DB shoulder press
    3x8 standing 1-arm cable laterals
    3x8 bent DB rear laterals
    4x10/10/8/8 lying leg curls
    4x8 GHRs
    7min cardio cooldown

    postWO shake ~450cals (80g c/30g p/5g f)

    postWO meal 45min later ~400cals (30g c/50g p/10g f)

    for informational purposes, besides the Axon, supplements being used currently include creatine/fish oil/multi/ALA/ALCAR
