The Primordial Off-Season Adventure of Snags (V2.0 of course)
- 09-15-2012, 07:11 PM
i think i got something left in the tank.
i remember last time i ran this, put on some pretty decent size and gained good strength.
my fav part about it is the constant change, i think it's very well designed.
it's coming along well, very pleased with things.

A1) weighted pullups
A2) weighted dips
B) standing DB military press
in my constant experimentation with pre/postWO nutrition, i have come across something lately that is working well..
there are 2 ways i go about this timing currently, depending on my schedule:
either consume a full postWO shake immediately following training (eat an hour later), or
split my shake in half, consuming exact same concoction only 1/2 of it 30min preworkout and the other half immediately when done (still eating an hour later).
so, the shake is like this:
2 scoops EAS recovery protein
2 TBS brown rice syrup
1 scoop intrapro
intellectually, i like the split shake protocol..in practice tho, i prefer the full preWO shake after training.
and - i am not an EAS fan by any means, never really got into any of their products, but this stuff fits the bill well.
(doesn't hurt i picked it up dirt cheap)

as for numbers - let's just say i'm comfortable where i'm at currently.
i am not a "stongman" or a powerlifter..mid 3's and mid 4's are not impressive, so i don't really focus or report those, as they are all relative to our own goals and growth.
if i hit a PR i'll mention it, but no PRs are happening right now.
fyi however - my focus this off-season is primarily on posterior chain growth/development, so i anticipate great progress here.

I'm looking forward for the developments you are gonna do to that masterpiece already brother!! !

(Side note: if I can be a powerlifter, and look lean, good and well crafted, albeit not as much as you because it would be impossible to achieve for me hehe...I'll be the happiest man on earth ! Best of both Iron-Worlds)

ahhhh..the unbridled enthusiasm of youth.
[casts a wistful sigh]
after 25yrs+ of training -- even with the BEST of form -- you may be surprised what kind of toll that takes on your body, bud.
much like genetic growth potential of musculature, there is genetic differential in joint/tendon/ligament health as well.
but i don't dissuade you from your goals friend..just give you food for thought.

this guy looks fairly decent too, and pretty athletic actually..
when you're on Medicare and still look like he does, you gotta tip your cap to him.
