    I mean, seriously...what else is there to do other than SLDL, curls, and good mornings? It seems like it's either those, or just a variation of it. Such as DB SLDL, or seated/kneeling/standing leg curl rather than lying leg curl.

    Very true, a lot of people tend to over complicate legs i beleive. For a while all i did was squats and SLDL, maybe some extensions here n there or something.

    Yep, same here. I'd pump out 7 sets of squats, 4 sets of extensions, and 5 sets SLDL.

    Sometimes I'd do lots of volume though and do Squats, Front squats, Leg extensions, leg curls, and sldl. Those were insane workouts.

    Ever since I've broken up hams and quads I am able to do a couple exercises without feeling like death. It's nice. Every workout of mine has two leg exercises (either ham or quad) but it makes me not hate training them. I just knock them out first and then do everything else.

    Splitting up hams and quads?

    I love doing it that way. You can really focus on each muscle group individually and it doesn't seem to ever make me sick. There really is no "leg day" for me anymore. Every workout I have has two leg exercises in it.

    Whatever those cool looking "sex lines" are called, they're coming in better now.

    Now just help me get rid of the lower abdominal fat. Hopefully adding HIIT will burn it off.

    I can't say it didn't do anything, but I can't really say it did either. At least in the area I really have trouble with it didn't do much.

    My next stack + some HIIT should take care of it. The problem I foresee is even if I do get rid of it, I have a feeling it will be near impossible to retain the results. I feel that having that layer of fat in that area is just a genetic flaw. My sister has it as well.

    I just woke up to find that my quads are not that sore at all. I'm very sad right now. Sad indeed.

    I'll be switching up Leg Extensions for Front Squats next B1 workout. I don't know why I didn't do this yesterday anyways.

    So do I. They feel great. The only thing that's difficult about them is how they sort of cut off your air supply. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to pass out.

    see if you can get some heavy kb's and then try them

    It pretty much eliminates that problem.

    Today was an off day, so nothing to really report. I felt pathetically lazy all day. I haven't done anything out of the house to day with the exception of the grocery store.

    I carbed up pretty well today. Just had some whole wheat pasta with a big chicken breast and some alfredo sauce. Before that I had some whole wheat ravioli with chicken. I've also been eating some sugar-free oatmeal cookies. I guess the cookies aren't "good carbs" but they're not HORRIBLE.

    I'll be starting my HIIT after breakfast tomorrow. Schedule will probably be something like...

    0900: Breakfast
    1000: Take Blue Gene and stretch, jump rope to warm up
    1030-1045: HIIT on spin bike

    I feel like passing out on EACH AND EVERY leg day I do

    True about front squats though, they are great, they work the core to a greater extent than regular squats, plus, they force you to stay up-right. I have a tendency to lean forward on conventional squats, think it is because my quads are much tighter than my hams. I should stretch them more but I am too lazy

    You definitely should try it after you take your week off. I love doing it this way. I feel like I get a better concentration on the muscle. If you do legs all in one day, whatever exercise is last, or even the last two, are going to suffer from the first exercises you've done. If you only do two exercises, you won't have a problem with fatigue.

    Quick Q:

    Do you guys think it would be beneficial to buy AP if I would only be taking it for one-two days out of the week?

    Since I carb up on Friday/Saturday night, but the rest of my diet is low carb, would it serve much of a purpose?

    Are you making sure you look at the ceiling when you do your squats?

    Day 11

    Today was my first day doing HIIT in a very long time. I have to say, it felt great!

    I ate my usual big breakfast at around 9am. Got on the computer, sipped coffee, and read AM for a little while. Took my Blue Gene at about 11am, then hit the gym.

    I stretched for about ten minutes, did some agility drills, and just screwed around in the group fitness room to get the blood flowing.

    I hopped on the spin bike and warmed up for five minutes, then I did ten intervals at 30secs ON / 60secs OFF. I know that's a beginner pace, but I want to get my body used to it again.

    I definitely built a good sweat and felt great during it. Although my legs were burning a bit anyways, I'm sure that without the Blue Gene it would have been much worse. My endurance was great, and I will be bumping up the amount of intervals next time. Probably to 13-15.

    Since I carbed up yesterday, and I did HIIT this morning after breakfast (decently heavy carbohydrate meal), how should I handle my carbs today?

    I think ap once or twice a week would be beneficial. And you always look up at the ceiling when you squat?

    Well not like straight up haha. I keep my head back, though. It helps to keep your back straighter. Do some air squats right now and try it out.

    Ive been practicing air squats a lot lately because my form reallly sucks. I really have a hard time not letting my knees go past my toes. I guess I gotta just keep practicing.

    Ya, this seems to help that.

    Assuming you aren't squatting in a cathedral, tilt your head back and look at where the wall meets the ceiling.

    How do you do the bar placement?

    If you respond well to AP it may be worth it. I personally do not...which is why I ordered Slin from Lg Sciences to try out.

    That's actually not a bad idea to begin with. LG Sciences impressed me when I did the log for them. Maybe I should give Slin a go.

    ive been doing CKD the past 5 weeks, and i used AP for usually the first carb meals of the day, which are my biggest.

    for example i dose AP with my WMS + XTEND cocktail post w/o which has 100g WMS and i take that about 20 mins after AP, which i dose in the locker room.

    then saturday i use it for my breakfast with about 70 grams oats with about 8-10 grams brown sugar.

    sometimes ill pig out on my carb ups and dose 2 ap's for an exceptionally large carb meal like a buffet.

    Have you seen much difference?

    My breakfast meal has a pretty high amount of carbs, but other than that the only time I really have them in any high amount (50g+) is on Friday or Saturday night when I'm carbing up.

    i respond fairly well to AP, so yeah i feel a big difference when i use it for the carb ups. especially when going from about 20 grams/day sunday through friday, then 100g post w/o friday, i fill out instantly. and even saturday after ive already basically carbed up all day, i still feel that "food pump".

    i say try it out a couple times. if you dont end up liking it, youll still have the rest of the bottle to try out later when your diet utilizes more carbs and you can dose it more consistently.

    I may give it a shot. I'll add it to my supps for consideration. My next stack is going to be pretty intense I hope.

    *****

    Just a side note about the Blue Gene --- My appetite has been extremely high. About two hours ago I ate a large chicken breast, about 4oz of ground beef, ten spears of asparagus, and a half can of black beans and right now I am STARVING and have been for at least a half hour.

    The HIIT may have something to do with it, but the appetite has been getting increasingly higher each day.

    Just a side note about the Blue Gene --- My appetite has been extremely high. About two hours ago I ate a large chicken breast, about 4oz of ground beef, ten spears of asparagus, and a half can of black beans and right now I am STARVING and have been for at least a half hour.

    The HIIT may have something to do with it, but the appetite has been getting increasingly higher each day.
    what ideas do you have for the next stack?

    Well, my staple supplementation is: Whey/Casein/Leucine/MultiVit/ZMA/CLA

    The additions will probably be something like...

    BlueUp/AX/ATD/Dicreatine Mal/BA/1-C/RPM/Clen/ECA/Cordygen5...and then AP if I decide to do that.

    a leucine guy huh. did you used to use bcaa's? and if you did, do you notice a difference in recovery or muscle preservation?

    after my sponsored mass fx and neovar logs, i think im going to definitely hit up a contolled labs run. start with blue gene, purple wraath, and white flood i think, and depending on how i like neovar, i will probably use that also. or might just do a whole AN stack: drive, rpm, neovar, maybe igf-2, or if their new products are released soon i may run one of those.
