    Thanks for all the replies guys. Was up at the cabin this weekend so didn't get a chance to read all this till late last night. Had a nice relaxing weekend. Thankfully the pain has subsided for now, just like Snagency said, went away as quick as it came. Glad to know the 1-Andro is doing it's job.

    Worked all day and then hit chest/back this evening.

    Bench Press Isos: 375 for an 8 second hold x2. 405 for an 8 second hold x2
    Bench Press: 285x6, 295x6, 305x6
    Semi-Sup Pullups: BWx6, BWx6, 12lb DBx6, 15x6, 20 x6
    Barrel Bar Bench: 275x8, 285x7
    Wide Pro Lat Pulldown: 157.5x6, 170x6
    Side Inertia Lat Raises: 25x6, 25x6
    Shrugs: 395x6, 395x6

    It was the third week for this phase so I drop a set for the auxiliaries. Joints feel great. Did some speed work in the sand after my lift. Haven't done much speed work since I started the cycle cus I was trying to bulk up. Now that I'm up to 277lbs, I'm gonna start working my speed training back into my training regimen. Did band runs in the sand, 30 seconds forwards for 4 sets, 30 seconds backwards for 4 sets with a minute rest in between. I was surprised how good I felt during it. Don't get me wrong I was winded by the end of it, but I was expecting to have a much rougher go at it with the extra 10 pounds I put on and not doing any intense running for about 4 weeks. I was recomping without much cardio, so I'm excited to see how adding the intense cardio in enhances the recomp. Ran a 40 yard dash at the end of everything and clocked in a 4.84. Not bad for a 6'3" 277 lb man, but by the end of this cycle I'm hoping to break into the 4.7's

    Its nice change of pace seeing these speed/strength training programs instead of straight bbing. Good training brother. And yes very good numbers for being huge

    Thanks Montego and DreamWeaver. Preciate it.

    Today was heavy week for arms. Had an amazing workout, best one yet since I started my cycle.

    Weighted dips: 65x6, 85x6, 100x6 (2 count down)
    Barrel Bar curls: 115x6, 115x6, 125x5 (2 hold at top, 2 count down)
    DB French press: 50x6, 55x6 (2 count down, 2 hold at bottom)
    DB drop curls: 40x6, 40x6 (drop at half way, all the way up, than 2 count down)
    EZ bar reverse curl: 95x6, 115x6 (2 hold at top, 2 count down)
    Heavy band tri ext: black bandx6, blackx6 (2 hold at top, 3 count down)
    DB Cubans: 30x6, 40x6
    1/2 Cubans: 20x8, 25x8

    Crushed some PRs lifting than I did a speed and agility workout for about an hour and a half.

    Extended shuttle: 6 sets 90 sec rest in between
    (5 yards and back then 5 clap push-ups, 10 yards and back, then 5 vertical jumps for height, 15 yards and back, 15 yards and back. That's 1 set.)
    Heavy band runs: 30 sec at a time, 6 sets

    By the end my legs were torched and I just about yakked. Found it in me to run two 300 yard shuttles yet. I normally do a 300 yard shuttle in about 68 seconds.

    300 yard shuttle works like this. 25 yards up and 25 yards back, 6 times. That makes 300 yards. It really kills the legs with all the stopping and starting.

    Ran the first one in 63 seconds, rested 2 minutes, and ran the second one in 65 seconds. Both personal bests and both after 2 hours of working out. I was so shocked I remeasured the 25 yards and was thinking maybe I skipped a trip up and back, but my training partner assured me I didn't.

    I feel pretty amazing right now. Gonna finish up my post workout meal. Grab a casein shake and get to bed. Hope the intensity carries over to tomorrow's training session.

    Side note, just got a couple tubs of Cell Shock from supplementwarehouse.com for $22. It was out of stock on NutraPlanet so supplement warehouse price matched it. Hope I'm as amazed with the results as I am with the price.

    nice!
    great product, and obviously i'll advise the 2 scoops for you
    my goals are a bit different than yours, so i'll be dropping it in favor of Crea-Trona before too long
    cannot go wrong with either one, and price-point on both is awesome

    good stuff in here!

    Sorry I didn't update yesterday. Another couple hectic days at work.

    Wednesday night I did a pretty intense running session. Ran stadium stairs, 4 sets with 1 foot on each bleacher, as many trips up and down as I could get in 30 seconds. 30 seconds rest and back at it. Then I did 4 sets of bunny hops up the bleachers, as many trips as I could make in 30 sec. Followed that up with heavy band resisted runs in the sand. By the end my legs felt like jello and every fiber of my being wanted to walk out of the gym...but the preworkout kicked in and I decided to do a core workout with my buddy.

    Band Crunches: 6 arms extended with a 4 count back, 6 normal band crunches with a 2 count back, and 6 crunches, no count with no band...that's 1 set.
    Band *******s to woodchops: 10 sec iso, 10 woodchops with a 2 count back, that's 1 set. Did 3 sets of that.
    Hanging band resisted garhammers: hang from pullup bar, heavy band around my feet, bring knees to chest, hold for 2 and back down, 10 reps is 1 set. 3 sets of that.
    Flat lat flexion with presses: Lay on my side with someone sitting on my legs on a bench, extended my arms with a 15lb DB, held that position for 8 seconds then did 8 reps of bring my arms back behind my head and extending again. That's 1 set. 3 sets of that.
    Roman chair med ball abduction holds: On the leg raise station/dip bar, squeeze 20 lb med ball between your knees, bring knees to chest hold for 2, down for 2 for 12 reps. That's 1 set. Finished with 3 sets of that.

    I know it's pretty uncommon to have an entire day devoted to core, but let me tell you, you'll be sore in core muscles you never knew you had. Plus core strength is really important in my sport.

    Today I did my final week of the strength phase for legs.

    BB Squats w/ 2 count down: 315x8, 355x6, 465x4, 425x6, 395x8 (nearly passed out on the last set)
    Good Mornings w/ 3 count down: 145x8, 155x8, 155x8
    Glute Hams w/ 4 count down: 35x6, 35x6, 35x6
    BB Walking Lunges: 175x20, 185x20, 185x20
    Single leg lying leg curls w/ 3 count down: 97.5x8, 105x8, 105x8
    Sled pulls on tiptoes for 12 sec, 5 sets: 1600 lbs again (I ran out of 45lb plates in the gym and the sled won't hold anymore)

    Legs are actually feeling pretty good. They've got their a$$ kicked this week though with all the running added into my workouts.

    Chest/Back tomorrow, I'll check back in then. Just started my last bottle of the 1-Andro

    Long time no talk gentleman. Been doing a lot of traveling lately so I haven't really had the time to sit down and do a thorough update, didn't wanna half a$$ it either. So I'm gonna have a lot to say so I apologize for this post's lengthiness.

    Thursday 6/13:
    I finished my last week of the strength phase for legs. All my numbers were way up from week 1.

    Squats: 315x8, 365x6, 445x4, 405x6, 365x8

    Single Leg Lying Leg Curls: 105x8 each leg, 105x8, 110x6
    Sled Pulls on toes: 1600 lbs x12 seconds, for 5 sets.

    Finished up my last torso workout on Friday the 14th.

    Bench Press Isos: 405 w/ an 8 second holdx2, 405 for 8 sec x2
    Bench Press: 275x8, 285x8, 295x8
    Semi-Sup Pullups: BWx8, BWx8, 15lb DBx8, 20x8, 25x6

    Wide Pro Lat Pulldowns: 165x8, 165x8, 165x7
    Inertia Side Lat Raises: 25x8, 25x8, 27x8
    BB Shrugs: 405x8, 405x8, 405x8
    All the counts and every other detail is in my other post, didn't feel like adding all the counts and stuff in this post.

    Finished up my strength phase arms on Monday.
    Weighted Dips: 75x8, 85x8, 100x6
    Barrel Bar Curls: 105x8, 115x8, 115x8
    DB French Press: 50x8, 50x8, 55x8
    DB Drop Curls: 35x8, 35x8, 40x8
    EZ Bar Reverse Curls: 95x8, 105x8, 115x7
    Heavy Band Tri Ext: Blackx8, blackx8, blackx8
    Full Cubans: 35x8, 35x8, 40x8
    1/2 Cubans: 20x10, 20x10, 20x10

    I also did a lot of running after my lifts. Very similar to the running workouts I outlined earlier.

    I did my core workout yesterday, exactly the same as the one I mentioned last week.

    Today I started a new hypertrophy phase. It's called a 6, 12, 24 workout. It's 3 clusters of tri-sets. The pumps are unbelievable and the growth benefits of this workout are also incredible. This is the phase I was really looking forward to to pack on some more size.

    Here's the workout in detail... Did legs today.

    The first cluster looks like this...

    Heavy Banded Squats for 6 reps with a 5 count down, 10 seconds rest, Hex Bar Deadlifts for 12 reps with a 3 count down, 10 seconds rest, and 24 DB Box Squats for 24 reps as fast as I can do them or until I collapse, whichever happens first. I repeat this cluster 3 times with 2 minutes rest between each of the 3 sets. The banded squats are especially tough, you take some heavy bands, wrap them around the base of the squat rack and loop them around the bar. The tension is greatest at the top of the squat, gets easier as you descend, and re-intensifies on the way back up, it's a killer. By the end of each set your legs should be on fire and feel like jello. The weights looked like this...

    Banded Squats: 225+the bandx6, 225x6, 245x6
    Trap Bar DL: 225x12, 225x12, 245x12
    DB Box Squats: 2 30lb DBs x24, 30x24, 30x24

    Here's the second cluster...
    BB RDLs with a 5 count down for 6 reps, 10 seconds rest, right into Lying Leg Curls for 12 reps with a 3 count down, 10 seconds rest, then 2 Leg Bosu Ball Hip Ups for 24 reps and no count. The hip ups are performed with your heels dug into the bosu ball while lying on your back, you then thrust your hips skyward as explosively as possible. This wasn't quite as bad as the first cluster but it was still difficult and my legs were shot from the squats.

    Weights...
    BB RDLs: 185x6, 185x6, 185x6
    Lying Leg Curls: 150x12, 157.5x12, 170x12
    Bosu Hip Ups: BWx24, BWx24, BWx24

    The third and final cluster...
    Heavy Med Ball Abductions, hold for 5 seconds for 6 reps, 10 seconds rest, belted calf raises, hold for 3 seconds at the top for 12 reps, 10 seconds rest, band adductions for 24 reps and no count. For the Med Ball Abductions, place a med ball between your knees, squeeze and try to pop it while holding for 5 seconds at a time. For the Band Adductions, place a heavy band around your knees in the seated position, spread your knees as fast as possible for 24 reps, this should obliterate your hip flexors. Just be careful not to crush your nuts...

    Weights:
    Med Ball Squeezes: 20lb Med Ballx6, 20x6, 20x6
    Belt Calf Raises: 3 45lb plates on the belt, so 135x12, 135x12, 135x12
    Band Add.: Heavy Bandx24, bandx24, bandx24

    After these workouts running is a remote possibility. By the end standing was a near impossibility and I had to just sit on the floor and chill before I felt comfortable enough to hop in my truck and drive home without cramping. I'm gonna get up early tomorrow and get my run in no matter how stiff I'm feeling.

    Diet has been on point and I'm having minimal sides. Weight is pushing 280...

    I'll make sure I check back in tomorrow after my 6, 12, 24 torso workout...If I can manage to type without my shoulders cramping.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it. May be a big workload but it never seems like it's enough. Someone is always out there getting better, can't let 'em one up me.

    Shoulders, chest, and back are absolutely torched right now. Just finished up my 6, 12, 24 torso workout. My whole upper-body is still twitching and it's been about 2 hours since I lifted and I still can't feel my fingers from the insane pump I had. There came a point in this workout where the lactic acid was built up so much all I wanted to do was crawl out the door...but sometimes you just have to grit your teeth, suck it up, and just lift. Today was one of those days.

    First tri-set...Incline Bench Press with a 5 count down for 6 reps, 10 seconds rest, Flat Bench Semi-Sup DB Press with a 3 count down for 12 reps, 10 seconds rest, Heavy Band Standing Chest Press for 24 reps as fast as possible. Rest 2 minutes and repeat this 2 more times. The first two exercises aren't really that bad, but the last set of the band presses almost floored me. After each set it took a minute until I could fully unbend my arms.

    Weights looked like this...
    Incline Bench Press: 185x6, 205x6, 225x6 (Could definitely have done more, kind of disappointed looking back now that I didn't push myself harder.)
    Flat Bench Semi-Sup DB Press: 70x12, 75x12, 80x12
    Standing Band Chest Press: Blue Bandsx24, Bluex24, Bluex24 (Kind of tough to explain how tough the bands were since I can't throw a number out there but the blue bands are about a half-inch thick.)

    Second Tri-Set...this was actually the worse 3 exercises of the whole workout. Forearms felt huge and I couldn't bend my fingers the entire time this tri-set was going on. I did Wide-Pro Grip Pullups for a 5 count down for 6 reps, 10 seconds rest, Semi-Sup Lat Pulldowns for a 3 count back up and 12 reps, 10 seconds rest, Wide Pro Grip Cable Rows for 24 reps as fast as possible. Can't begin to describe how much of a pump this gave me.

    Weights...
    Wide Pro Grip Pullups: BWx6, BWx6, BWx6
    Semi-Sup Lat Pulldowns: 150x10, 130x12. 117.5x12 ( I hate going down in weight but I feel like the pump was almost like an enemy here, as the set went on I started to lose my range of motion for some reason, can't think of another explanation.)
    Wide Pro Grip Cable Rows: 70x24, 70x24, 70x24

    Last tri set...Banded BB Shrugs hold for 5 seconds at the top for 6 reps, 10 seconds rest, DB Poliquins for a 3 count down and 12 reps (kind of like a lat raise but a lot tougher, Band Upright Rows for 24 reps as fast as possible (Stand on a resistance band and simply perform an upright rowing motion). The Banded BB Shrugs were the killer here. Used some pretty heavily resistant bands. At the top of the shrug you have the bands really pulling down on the bar making the exercise about 25 times harder. With the bands on the bar, 135 felt way more than the 365 I did last week.

    Weights...
    Banded BB Shrugs: 135+double looped blue bandsx6, 135x6, 135x6
    DB Poliquins: 15x12, 20x12, 25x12
    Band Upright Rows: Bluex24, Bluex24, Bluex24

    Finished lifting and did some heavy sled pushes for speed. 600 pounds for 20 yards and then a 20 yard sprint back. 6 sets of that with 90 seconds rest in between. Then some pro shuttles (5/10/5 shuttle). 6 sets of those. Running was a struggle due to my leg day yesterday but I knew I'd regret leaving the gym without running.

    Tomorrow is 6,12, 24 arms day...wish me luck.

    Just stepped on the scale...282! Granted I just ate 16oz. of steak, a sweet potato and a salad but still... THAT'S 25 POUNDS IN 6 WEEKS! Some of it is probably water weight, but I think I actually look better now with the added poundage. Muscles look fuller and I'm more vascular.

    Thanks for all the compliment guys. Really appreciate that. I'll post some pics after I finish the PCT. I know the challenge is gonna be to keep those gains after I go off the 1-Andro.

    Sorry it's taken so long to reply to all you guys and to give y'all an update. On the weekends I just like to be unplugged, turn off the phone and computer and just relax. And then I get so caught up in the work week and working out that by the time I get home I head straight to bed. Also just joined a slow-pitch softball team haha, so we've had double-headers every night this week so far.

    Last Friday, June 21st I did the first week of my 6, 12, 24 arms workout. Still a bit sore actually, but that may be from swinging a bat 100's of times for the first time in a couple years.

    Arms day looked like this:

    Tri Set #1:
    C.G. Bench Press, 6 reps with a 5 count down, 10 seconds rest, DB Decline Tri Ext, 12 reps with a 3 count down, 10 seconds rest, Heavy Band Tricep Pushdowns, 24 reps as quick as possible.

    Weights:
    C.G. Bench: 225x6, 235x6, 245x6
    DB Decline Tri Ext: 30x12, 40x12, 40x12
    Band Tri Pushdowns: Blue Bandx24, bluex24, bluex24

    Second Tri Set:
    BB Curls, 6 reps with a 5 count down, 10 seconds rest, Sup Grip DB Curls, 12 reps with a 3 count down, 10 seconds rest, Band Curls for 24 reps as fast as possible.

    Weights:
    BB Curls: 85x6, 85x6, 85x6
    DB Curls: 25x12, 25x12, 25x12
    Band Curls: Purplex24, purx24, purx24

    Third Tri Set:
    DB Shoulder Press, 6 reps with a 5 count down, 10 seconds rest, DB Flat Bench Supermans, 12 reps 2 count hold and 2 count down, Prone Incline T-Raises, 24 reps as fast as possible.

    Weights:
    DB Shoulder Press: 50x6, 55x6, 55x6
    DB Supermans: 8x12, 8x12, 8x12
    T-Raises: 8x24, 8x24, 8x24

    Took the weekend off and ended up doing torso for the second week on Monday, and core on Tuesday. Gonna hit legs again tomorrow and I'll update after that.

    Thanks again for all the encouragement. It's an honor getting tips and learning from such a solid group of guys.

    Today was a legs day...I'm reminded of that by the constant cramps I keep getting in my calves and hammys.

    Week 2 of the 6, 12, 24 legs workout. Brutal.

    Warmed up by taking about 100-150 swings in the batting cage. I'm trying to return to my high school baseball glory days. After that, I did some band stretches and hit the squat rack.

    For the complete details of this workout and all my other 6,12, 24's refer to my earlier posts.

    Tri-Set #1:
    Heavy Banded Squats (5 count down): 225 plus a blue band for 6, 245x6, 265x6 (10 sec rest)
    Trap Bar Deadlifts (3 count down): 225x12, 225x12, 225,12 (10 sec rest)
    DB Box Squats (As fast as possible): 30x24, 30x24, 30x24 (150 sec rest)

    Tri-Set #2:
    BB RDLs (5 count down): 185x6, 195x6, 205x6 (10 sec rest)
    Lying Leg Curls (3 count down): 165x12, 170x12, 177.5x12 (10 sec rest)
    2 Leg Bosu Ball Hip Ups (As fast as possible): BWx24, BWx24, BWx24 (150 sec rest)

    Tri-Set #3:
    Heavy Med Ball Abd. Squeezes (5 count hold): 25lb MBx6, 25x6, 25x6 (10 sec rest)
    Belt Calf Raises (3 count hold): 135x12 (normal stance), 135x12 (toes out), 135x12 (toes in) (10 sec rest)
    Band Adductions (As fast as possible): Green bandx24, Greenx24, Greenx24

    Started to cramp up on the drive home. Really think it's just because it's that tough of a workout. In other words, I don't think it has anything to due with the supplements I'm on or my hydration levels. Drank about 2 gallons of water today and I don't usually experience cramping with the other forms of workouts I do, but the 6, 12, 24's will get ya.

    Got one more day of the 1-Andro left. Kinda bummed about that, but I'm looking forward to the PCT and seeing if I can maintain all my gains I got from the 1-Andro. Weight is holding steady but my strength levels are through the roof. No libido issues, no other negative sides.

    On a side note my knees are killing me, but once again I don't think it's due to the supplements. Think it's more from the years of abuse of playing football and I recently spoke to my chiropractor and he gave me some interesting news. I've had Osgood Schlatter's Disease in my right knee for as long as I can remember. Mostly all kids grow out of it once their growth plates close and they're done growing. Normally it goes away by ages 16-18, I'm 21 and I still have it. So either I'm still growing or I'm a rare case, I really hope it's the first reason. That said, this is what I'm attributing the knee pain to. If anything changes I'll let y'all know.

    Have a good weekend fellas.

    Yah Kris was a prodigy at 18 he was 270 deading and squatting close to 600 for reps and running a 4.9 40 dam fuggin back gave out on him and he had still 4 years of college to go. Couldn't risk it, would be different if he was a Junior or a Senior looking at pro. Fuggin strongest guy I have ever seen in person. Scary strong; like break you in a million peices. He could have boxed I think too, heavy heavy hands and he thought about MMA too but can't get his act together without dad there to kick his azz... Oh well I think he'll make a great Cop some day and that's more important. We need good cops more than we need ball players....

    Sorry if I didn't mention that earlier. Yeah, I'm only 21. Look forward to using more Finaflex products in the future, sky's the limit.

    Definitely some recomp going on. But that was my goal anyway. Keeping my speed at nearly 280 was the most important thing to me.

    Your son sounds like a friggin beast! Definitely agree, this nation needs more good cops than some of these thugs in the NFL *cough cough* Aaron Hernandez. Seems like back injuries ruin a lot of great athletes. I actually broke mine this past season, didn't really realize it and played 3 more games. Finally went to a doctor and got an MRI and some x-rays, turns out I broke 3 transverse processes...they're those 2 prongs that come off of each of your vertebrae. Doctor said he saw it twice, a skydiving accident and a car wreck. Not much they could do about it, so I just kept playing. Crazy how when your adrenaline is pumping you don't really feel much. Every now and then I can feel the broken pieces pressing against my back, but I'm not gonna let it slow me down.

    Last week was a busy week and I apologize for not posting in that time span. I took the last weekend in June off, had to help my gf move. Carrying all her clothes down 2 flights of steps was a tougher workout than the 6,12,24 leg workout. Got back to work Mon, and Tues, and did torso and arms. My training split got thrown off a bit cus I didn't have a training partner to do core on Monday. Tuesday night I tweaked my hammy pretty bad playing in a men's slow pitch softball league...I know, really stupid way to get hurt, especially when I hurt it trotting around the bases after a home run. Might have been a blessing in disguise though, I could feel my body starting to break down just a bit. Shoulders were also bothering me a bit. As much as it pained me to do I shut it down and enjoyed some much needed R&R. Went down to the beach on July 3rd and just got back in this morning. Hammy feels great and so does the rest of my body. Chomping at the bit to get back in the gym tomorrow though. Looking forward to making one final push before training camp.

    The PCT is going great so far. No side effects whatsoever. Weight is also holding steady, but keeping weight on isn't too tough over a holiday weekend. Went off the deep-end on the 4th, 8 egg omelet for breakfast, 2 footlong roasted chicken breast subs from Subway for lunch, 4 grilled chicken breasts, 2 potatoes, and some mac and cheese at 4th of July party #1, then a couple hours later I was coerced into eating 2 racks of ribs and a couple ears of corn. Not to mention the desserts haha. Was in a food coma for the next day. Got back on the diet this weekend.

    I'll post some pics at the end of this cycle once I work off the food baby I created Thursday and I'll be checking back in tomorrow night.

    The first day back in the gym after a couple days off is better than Christmas morning.

    Did my last week of the 6,12, 24 legs workout and my hammy held up just fine. Came in the gym tonight feeling like a effin beast, well actually I was already in the gym since I work there, but you get the point. On a new preworkout supplement, ForceFactor by Labrada Nutrition. Tastes like s***, but really like the extreme focus and energy it gave me. Haven't felt that awhile from a preworkout supplement. Got a great deal on a SupplementWarehouse.com flash sale, 45 serving tub for 5.95$.

    Workout looked like this...

    Tri-Set #1:

    Band Squats (5 Count down for 6) 225x6, 275x6, 315x5 (would've had 6 but my hip flexors cramped up on rep #6)
    Trap Bar Deadlifts (3 count down for 12) 225x12, 245x12, 275x12
    DB Front Squats to Bench (24 as fast as possible) 30x24, 35x24, 35x24

    Tri Set #2:

    BB RDLs (5 count down for 6) 225x6, 225x6, 225x6
    Lying Leg Curls (3 count down for 12) 157.5x12, 150x12, 150x12 (had to back off a little, felt my hamstring really getting tight)
    2 Leg Bosu Hip Ups (24 as fast as possible) BWx24, Redx24, RedX24 (Bodyweight got too easy, attached a red band to 100lb DBs and put it over my waist for some extra resistance)

    Tri Set #3

    MB Abduction Squeezes (Hold for 5 sec for 6 reps) 20lb MBx6, 20x6, 20x6
    Belted Calf Raises (3 count hold at top for 12) 135x12, 135x12, 135x12
    Band Adductions (24 as fast as possible) green bandx24, Greenx24, Greenx24

    Really happy with how the workout went today. Was a bit apprehensive about my hamstring but everything felt fine. Pumped I was able to push it as hard as I did on squats. Legs are feeling pretty wobbly still but I'm gonna jump in the hot tub and hopefully that'll loosen em up a bit.

    Diet is back in full force and I'm feelin great.
    Breakfast: 3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites, 12 oz. turkey sausage, 1 cup of peppers, 2 cups of oatmeal, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 banana, 1 cup of coffee
    Snack #1: 2 Chobani 0% fat Greek yogurts, 2 scoops Gold Standard Whey in 16 oz of orange Gatorade (tastes like those orange creamsicle ice creams on a stick)
    Lunch: 16 oz Delmonico steak, 2 baked potatoes, 2 cups spinach w/olive oil
    Snack #2: 2 Chobani 0% fat Greek yogurts, 2 scoops Gold Standard Whey in 16 oz of orange Gatorade
    Dinner: 16 oz. ground 95% lean turkey burger, 2 baked potatoes, 2 cups spinach
    Bedtime snack: Super Shake (that's what I call it) 12 oz. Vanilla Almond milk, 1 raspberry Chobani 0% fat Greek yogurt, 1 cup fresh raspberries, 1 banana, 1 scoop vanilla MusclePharm casein protein.

    Took my Pure Test and PCT Rev upon waking and will take dose #2 right before bed. Also took a multivitamin w/breakfast, CLA and Fish oil with lunch and dinner, and ZMA before bed as well. Preworkout, 1 scoop stim force, during workout, 1 scoop SizeOn and 1 scoop Scivation Xtend, Postworkout 1 Extreme XXL by ABB.

    Just wanted to clue y'all in on my diet and supplements, haven't done that in awhile.

    I'll check back in tomorrow night. Later fellas.
