  1. Irish Rugby with Muscle Pharm's Battle Fuel and Bulletproof- Rugby Offseason Training


    I have seen what MP's Assault can do and I love what Bulletproof has to offer, so I decided to continue my offseason training with MP's Battle Fuel and get another bucket of Bulletproof too.

    Before:



  2. Day 1:
    My aggression in the gym was noticably higher with the battle fuel. and my energy was way up. I felt like I could have done another hour worth of a workout. It was really awesome.
    Legs:
    5 minute jog warm up
    Leg Press 500x10 500x10 410x10 410 x10
    Explosion Squats 235 x10 x4
    Calf extensions.
    Abs

    15 minutes of HIIT 10 mph sprints down to 3 mph at 1 minute intervals.

  3. Supplement Review for Day 1:

    I really like Battle Fuel. It gives me a ton of energy and motivation in the gym, even while running (I hate running unless its on the rugby field). I actually enjoyed my HIIT today and I made my fiance' do it with me and she hated it and *****ed incesantly about it, ha ha. I felt amazing while doing legs today too and that is a huge plus because lifting legs is not one of my favorite things to do either.

    I have used Bulletproof before, but I got the Orange Raspberry this time. Tastes similar to the grape stuff because of the after taste, but it still tastes good to me. It is 20 minutes to midnight and I took it about 10 minutes ago and I am getting pretty drowsy.
  4. Day 2:


    Took the Battle Fuel right after I got up and hit the gym and had a great Chest and Shoulder work out. I really am diggin on the way it makes me feel while lifting.

    Chest:

    DB Bench 85x10 75x10 70x10 65x10
    Incline Bench 150x10 145x10 135x10 135x10
    Decline Flys 50x10 50x10 45x10 45x10
    Push ups 25 x4

    Shoulders:
    Front/Side/Rear Extensions 17.5 x10 15x10 12.5x10
    Shoulder Shrugs 80x10 75x10 70x10 65x10

    2 solid positions there Irish

    No.8 (8man) - The best position in the forwards IMHO

    keep up the good work and all the best with next season

  10. Thanks guys,

    I love playing 8. I get to punish people on both sides of the ball all the time.

  11. Lookin leaner since the last time you posted pics. Good ****.

    Thanks man, I am getting there, the switching up of my diet and the introduction of HIIT has been helpful. I hoping that it continues to happen.

    I can see where it would, I have not yet played while taking it, but I am already really aggressive out on the field anyway and with the added aggression I have in the gym I am assuming that it would get me pretty pumped up on the rugby pitch. I notice that it really gives me a drive to go further especially while running, that could be extremely beneficial on the rugby pitch as well.

  17. wait a sec are you actually irish...
    or just one of those people claiming to be...

    I have Irish ancestry and I actually plan on going/moving to Ireland in the next couple years because one of Ireland's immigration law states that if you can trace back your heritage to where your relatives got off the boat from Ireland, you are automatically a citizen of Ireland. Both my Fiance' and I can do that and I want to go overseas and play rugby for awhile, so it all kind of works out. Plus, Guinness in Ireland is way different than Guinness here I am told, so that gives me all the more reason to go over there.

  19. Mmm.. sorry to be the bearer of bad news but stay as far away from Ireland at the mo and for the next few years.
    there are no funking jobs and because are goverment are a bunch of criminals they spent all the money we saved when times were good. So now people with jobs get taxed to the heavens.
    on a side note the level of rugby is very high though..

    So was the Wales v All Blacks game. After watching the Ireland Argentina game and then watching the Wales All Blacks its easy to see why the All Blacks are ranked no. 1.

  23. B are you going to be at the World Cup in NZ in 2011?

    Maybe, it's still a while away, maybe the all blacks can finally bring home the big one and stop choking at world cup time

    are you going to come down and watch it or even be playing for the eagles?

    It is a long way away. I would love to play, but I doubt that I will make the team. I will definately be coming down though for it in one way or another. I didn't go to France and I wish I would have so I am definately making it to NZ.

  26. the kiwis are such bottlers...
    the munster game was unbelievable...
    Saying that i do feel they will win in their back garden..
    they definatly have the squad for it..
    oh and have a look on you tube for dan carter getting sphere'd yesterday playing for perpinaghan against leicester.

    if our dollar stays the way it is, you'll get 2 for 1 on the currency exchange, that's gotta be a good start.

    the irish are well liked and respected here as well so you won't be short on making new friends

    D.C can handle it bro, he had a stellar first game for his "new" club. afterall he is making NZ $1.5 M for his one season there so he's gotta expect a bit of "attention" and roughing up.

  29. yeah i had a couple of mates living near wellington who went over for a year.. they loved it.. they told a story bout some OTC party pills.. They both went f^^king out of there skull for a night!
