  1. All this almond talk sent me shopping today...during my browsing I found a new flavor I had not tried yet. Should be interesting.

    Sorry to hijack with my own pic Snag....

    i cut the stem too close on one of them, so a side collapsed, but the taste was still g2g.



    first time i ever used string cheese on these, had some of that tomato basil stuff left, luvin the taste.
    also used turkey breast, black forest ham, red peppers, red onion.
    passed on the parmesan this day.
    Food porn at it's finest ... now here I don't mind some sloppy seconds ...

  6. shoulders/abs this day..another fine session.
    seated BB military press/seated laterals, standing DB front raises, standing plate raises were order of the day, followed by some ab work.
    cardio warmup/cooldown as usual.
    ran out of my brown rice syrup, my store was out too, so went another direction for postWO nutrition today:
    1 cup shredded wheat
    2 TBS honey
    8oz almond milk
    (not pictured, 40g isolate shake in water)
    ~525cals total.


  7. I would have lathered up some CR Ezek bread with honey. Lol

    shredded wheat with some honey & almond milk bro..tis the bomb.

    ez cr is great just plain - or better yet, with butter.
    (slathered with butter even more better - if i'm on a higher fat day)

  9. back training this morning..tennis later this afternoon.
    chins/rack pulls/lat pulldowns/deadlifts were the chosen exercises of the day.
    not much to report - strength remains constant, energy levels fine (axon in play again), feeling good overall..
    same old, same old.

    EDIT: dint want this update to be so boring, so some added info.
    i use the perfect pullup attachments off my reg pullup bar sometimes, to get a different ROM and hand position - usually when i do these, my body is parallel to the floor in the contracted position, and i pull back tight.
    well, couple weeks back i was doing these, and both PP grips snapped simulteously! almost coulda been a bad scene, if it weren't for my cat-like reflexes and ability to level myself out before i landed flat on my back lol..
    so, upon a search i find that i'm not the only one this has happened to - indeed, some couple thousand consumers experienced the same thing, and the company issued a recall over a yr ago. talki about being late to the party.
    e-mailed the company, ands they promptly issued a replacement with the new and improved grips.
    fyi for anyone still using those old-style grips.
    they looked like this:


    the new grips look like this:


    and this is what i mean by using my pullup bar with them..i built this bar into the ceiling in my garage, attaching to studs in attic.

  10. mid-day snaggage (oops, i mean snackage).



    strayed from the ezekiel with some pepperidge farms 15-grain bread..stuff is pretty good.
    sandwich has deli cuts of turkey breast, roast beef, and black forest ham with a slice of 2% pepperjack cheese
    can of bumblebee albacore chunk tuna w/ garlic salsa
    obligatory veggie medley

    ~475cals total

  13. i always feel good after some tennis.



    this might be the last pic you guys see of me as a 40y/o..birthday is in a week, and gaining has slowed a bit, still ~ 192.6
    so i doubt i'll hit 195 before i turn 41.
    still amazed i'm eating as much as i am and seeing the weight gain slow tbh..my Pp run has pumped new life into this old body, gotten me back on track.
    (tennis was straight sets win btw, 7-5 and 6-3)

  14. breakfast
    5oz turkey breast
    1 slice ez cr toasted w/ butter
    1 whole egg/2 whites
    1 cup grape nuts flakes
    1 cup almond/coconut milk
    large banana
    ~625cals



    training:
    hip thrusters, RDLs, bi/tri supersets, mixed in ab work.
    warmup/cooldown cardio.
    was supposed to be an off day, but i may not be able to train for next 2 days so got it in while i could.
    feeling good - esp after tennis yesterday.

    postWO nutrition:
    1 bagel (no butter)
    1 TBS honey
    30g isolate
    6oz Mountain Dew

    the dew just sounded good today.

  15. I have been doing hip thrusters for a couple months now with some nice returns. It really activates the glutes and upper hamstrings.

    Ya one of my go to exercises when trying to get some serious glute activation. Really helps people learn to fire the glutes.

  17. i don't do them enough.
    tend to get lazy and run RDLs and leg curls majority of time, with the occasional GHRs thrown in.
    need to get some more variance here.

  18. Yah I have been using Almond milk for my shakes recently ....man.. oh which reminds me if you want Protein pudding here is a very simple recipe that will take as little as 30 minutes...

    1 cup of almond milk, 2 scoops of myofusion shake and refridgerate for 30 minutes or longer if you like... fuggin pudding and it's fuggin good!!

  19. i used to make protein pudding yrs ago, back when Beverly still made Ultra Size protein..
    once you have that as a pudding, nothing else really ever compares.
    i miss that stuff.
    have used myo in there before tho, not bad.
    muscle milk is pretty tasty too.
    love the almond milk! and this new combo almond/coconut that just came out, groovin on it..bout time somebody thought of that.

  20. haven't shown a dinner plate for awhile, thought this was a good time.
    bustin out some variety tonight..baked red potato on the side, salad too of course.
    main course:
    5oz turkey breast
    4oz laura's lean 92% beef
    1.5oz chicken breast chunks



    and, i stocked up on a few snacks, one shelf of my pantry..


  21. all right..time to take this thing to the next level.

    dietary consumption will be increased gradually now, macros/micros get a bit cleaner for awhile..the goal is to get to 5k cals -- and potentially hit 195 by my birthday.

    started this upward movement yesterday actually, hitting 4250cals on a non-tennis playing day.

    eating this many cals will require a slight sacrifice in chosen foods, to ensure no accompanying fat gain..

    workouts will also take on a slightly different structure, as i constantly evolve.

  22. In for epicness to come. That is a lot of food, bet things are about to get crazy.

  23. crazy indeed.


    update shots after a beast of a caloric excess last night..i broke 195 with a quickness, and with a lb to spare.




    how much i'll retain after normal caloric threshhold is up in the air, but i sure seemed to have sucked it up decently o/n.

  24. 5k in clean food. You are a machine.
    Just inject.

    That's the key right there^^

  26. That is a ton of calories...makes me feel puny with my nice and slow gaining on 3500+.

    But I guess that is because you dwarf me! At least you cook up some interesting looking food, so many people think eating clean means boring as hell meals.

  27. Yah I think Steve has a pretty quick metabolism ... but his attention to detail is stellar. That's why I am going to pick his brain on my next prep... that or hire him as my cook

    is a sh!tload of cals for sure.
    harder than you think to eat clean and get those cals in...
    weight gain is going well over the last week, i've broken the 200# mark after a sloppy day or two of consumption - which shows me all the more that when dealing with this amount of cals, gotta keep 'em super clean if i wanna stay lean.

  30. Could not agree more here. I got a little sloppy as well and started looking like crap. Time to clean things back up. I also found some Blue Diamond Honey Dijon flavored almonds!! Got real sloppy with these. Lmao
