    let's rock pct out and hold these gains now!
    Hardest part but after PCT too... personally if your just using herbals why not make it 8 weeks instead of 4. What's your plan?

  2. I go back to work in August. So I'm planning on hitting it hard until then. I have enough PCT Black to last through August. Will probably run it 8 weeks. I only have one bottle of pure test. I will run until its gone.

    As far as training. I'm going to continue lifting as usual. I want to add in more conditioning. I've been considering checking out some CrossFit gyms in the area to change up and intensify my conditioning. I can probably get a cheap rate for one month. I'm generally against CrossFit overall but I wouldn't mind the change of pace for a few weeks.

  3. Deadlift, deadlift, and more deadlift

    Snatch grip deads 2x5x185, 2x5x225, 2x5x275

    Conv. Deads 2x5x315, 1x3x365, 395 - three singles

    Sumo Deads 315x5, 315x5, 315x5

    Drop down sets 225. 1x15, 1x12

    Also tried frog stance or V stance. Those killed my quads. I'm adding them to my routine.

    Single leg squats 3x15, BW, last set with 20 lb vest.

    Standing calf raises 3x15

    Knee had been sore and not squat worthy. Going to lay off for a week.

  4. Eeeesh! That's a lot of deads lol.

  10. Only problem with them is the do seem to make the waist thicker. I do them hear and there cuz they're fun...

  11. Nice workout Caleb.

    Doug if you hold your abs tight but in they will not make your waist thicker. You train your abs out they grow out, you train them in they don't. You just need to do them like a bodybuilder and pull them in and tighten the core instead of press them out for a stronger trunk. It is all about how you train them.

  12. Just got back from four days on the Frio River in Concan. Had a great relaxing time. Put on about 5 pounds of bloat. But it was wort it.

    Got home and went to work.

    My traditional Sunday work. Squats and deads.

    Worked up as usual with snatch grip deads until I got to 275x5.

    Switched to conventional. 275x5, 315x3, 365x3, 385x3, 405x2, 405x2, 315x8

    Squat. Worked up by 5s to 315. 365x3, 365x3, 385x3, 385x3, 315x8, 275x12, 225x15

    Duck squats 135x15, 3 sets

    Going to do some circuit conditioning tonight. About 30 minutes worth.

  13. We stayed in concan last time we went. Buchanan cabins. The cafe there had AMAZING food.

  14. Neal's has great food. We've been going there for over ten years now. We rent with Frio Fun. Just wish it wasn't so popular. It has gotten more crowded every year.

  15. Training update.

    HIIT circuit. 28 minutes of work.

    Did five rounds of the following.

    Hang cleans - 95 lbs
    Sled drag - 30 yards forward, 30 back
    Ab wheel - 10-12
    20 push-ups
    50 reps jump rope

  16. Chest and tris

    Bench - worked up by 5s to 275. Felt pretty strong. Weight went up easy. After last set at 275 I did one drop down set at 225 for 12 reps to near fail.

    Decline Bench 185x10 - 4 sets

    Iso dips - max reps until I couldn't squeeze anymore for 3 sets

    Wide dips 2x10

    Elbows in Dips (tri) 4x10

    Band pull downs 4x10. These fried what was left of my tris.

    Tonight I did another HIIT session. 25 minutes.

    25 pull-ups
    40 yard sprint
    50 push-ups
    80 yard sprint
    50 crunches
    120 yard sprint
    100 BW squats
    180 yard sprint
    50 push-ups
    120 yard sprint
    80 yard sprint
    40 yard sprint

    Had some burpees planned but I didn't want to puke and the last two sprints were more of a jog/run.

  17. Never knew that about deads, don't even know how that effects perfomance. I am thinking I'd have to reduce the weight.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  18. Yeah it is interesting about holding abs in as opposed to out. I've just always pushed out with my abs.

    In the beginning for sure. However the strength of your core would quickly increase to stabilize the weight.

    Yeah for straight up powerlifting the wider the trunk the better. I simply flex my abs hard and create internal pressure without pushing them out. It is simply a matter of control. It isn't like I suck them in, so much as not push them out.

    You have a good point here!!!

  21. PCT Update

    Currently taking 4 Pure Test ED and 1 PCT Black

    Weight is at 229. Hovering consistently there.

    BF % according to skin fold (chest, love handle, belly, and thigh). My BF is 11.8%. I know there is quite a bit of user error so I estimate an error of about .2 to .4 %. Either way I have dropped BF quite a bit while gainin weight. Almost 10 lbs. I anticipate a loss in weight due to increase in conditioning work I plan on doing through July. I wish I was using calipers from the beginning so I could really see my progress.

    Will take pics at the end of this week.

    Thanks to all for the support.

  22. Although you didn't start by using calipers, it's good to have them now. Maybe you're not able to put a number to your progress, but your pics make it pretty obvious that you're headed in the right direction. Good job in here man.

  23. Pics and the mirror , best way to see improvements....looking forward to see your progress.

    sorry man - I had to laff
    so you think .2-.4% is "quite a bit" of error?
    bud - depending on the pinch, more like 2 - 4% (no decimals)
    but indeed as para has said, your progress has been obvious to all..229 tho eh?
    well good work

    well good work
    A good set of eyes beat the calipers every time or most of the time. I don't need to know the numbers just am I lean enough for show ... numbers fug with your head. Lean enough is lean enough, but you can always get a tad leaner

  28. You are such a sweetheart Snag.

  29. Today's conditioning

    Run .5 mile
    60 pull-ups
    150 push-ups
    200 BW squats
    Run .5 mile

    Done in 30 minutes. Felt the puke coming but fought it down. Tomorrow is my favorite squats and deads.
