  1. Alright, so I figured that if I am going to be serious about cutting that I should be counting macros and calories. Based on my own knowledge, the internet, etc, I will be trying a 2600 calorie diet at first.

    2600 calories...now the question is how much of the other macros. To cut I know it's better to lessen carbs and keep intakes of protein and healthy fats up. I am 225 pounds, so how much protein? 300g? 250? What about fat? 100g? 80g? I will then have the rest come from complex carbs. I am also going to not eat carbs after 5 or so.

    Anyone please help me with my macros?

    Based on your frame, your macro should like this, proteins 300g, fats 150, COMPLEX carbs 100.
    The best complex carbs are oatmeal, quinoa oats, sweet potatoe,yams, brown or black rice, beans, sprouted grain bread, quinoa pasta, whole grain pasta, oat germ, millets, lentils.

    I know what good complex carbohydrates are, but thanks for helping me out anyhow

    I want to take most of the carbs in the morning, but I workout in the PM, around 430-5. I'm thinking 50-60g for breakfast, and then the other 50-40 PWO?

  6. Diet so far today:

    Meal 1:
    1 cup oats
    2 scoops myofusion
    2 tbsp skippy natural

    Meal 2:
    2 scoops myofusion
    2 oz peanuts

    Meal 3:
    2 chicken breasts
    12 oz mix vegetables
    2 tbsp olive oil

    PWO:
    40g WMS
    12g BCAA
    1.5 Taurine
    13g gatorade powder

    Meal 4:
    2 chicken breasts
    1 stuffed green pepper

    Post Wrestling:
    1 scoop whey isolate

    Meal 5:
    1 can tuna
    4 tbsp skippy natural

    The macros are roughly what I wanted, maybe a little high on carbs. Protein is good. Fat is a little on the low side. So, I swap some fat in for carbs and we should be golden

    Back workout from today:

    Dead Lift:
    135 X 8
    225 X 8
    245 X 8
    265 X 8
    285 X 8
    315 X 3

    T-Bar Row:
    1 Plate X 8
    2 Plates X 8
    3 Plates X 8
    4 Plates X 8

    Lat Pull:
    132 X 8
    168 X 8

    I then played around with super wide grip, trying to really pinch my lats together. Will play with this some more in the near future.

    One-arm DB rows:

    80 X 8
    90 X 8
    100 X 8 <-- Personal Record!

    The last rep of my 100 set was tough. Used some body to get it back. Side note: there was some ****ing douche bag doing these rows at the same time. He used a strap to do it, he used a 120lb dumbbell, and did 7 piss poor reps. Made me so angry. I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about though...

    Seated Calf Raises:
    2 Plates X 15
    4 Plates X 12
    4 Plates X 12
    4 Plates X 12

    Wrestling practice was pretty sweet tonight. I ran the practice Did a lot of abs afterwards, along with many push ups.

    Hope everyone had a good start to the week LATER!

  7. Chest workout:

    Barbell Incline Bench Press:
    135 x 8
    210 X 8
    225 X 8 (last one I had a little help)
    235 X 5 (last one I had a little help)

    For some reason I was feeling really tired and lethargic in the gym. I am tapering on the stims to eventually get off of them for a while, so that may be why. I did not distress! I changed my workout into more of an endurance workout as opposed to strength and size

    Dips: 3 X failure
    first set 20
    second set 21
    third set 15

    I would really like to get a dip belt sometime because I enjoy dips. I was feeling a very nice inner pec pump after this exercise!

    Dumbbell Incline Super Set w/ Incline Flies: Continuous
    45 X 10
    25 X 10
    45 X 10
    25 X 10
    45 X 10
    25 X 10

    45's for the press and 25's for the flies. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for something different to do, or for someone wanting endurance/good sweat. Great workout.

    Flat Flies:
    40 X 10
    45 X 8
    35 X 12 followed immediately by -->
    25 reps of flat bench with the 35 lb dumbbells (failure)

    Overall, I enjoyed this workout. A much more pump orientated lift. Not sure about the lethargy, but hopefully I will be more amped up more tomorrow! I may be doing legs tomorrow instead of shoulders because my lifting partner wants to. We'll see.

    Diet is going great. I can definitely see the change in water retention from tapering my carbs down to less than 150g/day (I am very sensitive to carbs especially sugar). Keeping protein and fat high. Lots of meat!!

    Supps are going great. Sticking with the same dosage. Taking 2 STOKED with my preworkout meal and one at 2 other meals, along with 2 AX at each of those 3 meals. Just ran out of my greenmag so i start doing straight monohydrate, excited to see what kind of different this makes

    I don't think I have anything else to comment on. How ya'll doing!?!

  8. Shoulders and chest are feeling sore today, as well as my traps and upper back. In light of this, I'm going to do legs today instead of shoulders/traps. Hoping to get more sore than last week's leg day. Going to do some straight leg deads

    Also, I've been reading a few threads in the forum regarding using P-Slin in an intra/post workout drink and this intrigues me very much. It so happens that I have a couple of bottles of P-Slin and I think I'm going to try this concoction starting next week to see how it pans out:

    40g WMS
    10g+ BCAA
    25g Gatorade Powder
    5g Creatine
    500mg P-Slin (1 pill emptied directly into shaker bottle)

    Theoretically the P-Slin will held drive all of these supplements into muscles and produce some sick, intense workouts. I am very excited The only thing left to add would be some whey and Beta Alanine. I don't have any BA, and all of my whey is flavored chocolate, so I'm not sure that would taste the best with my strawberry kiwi WMS. Perhaps I'll get experimental later, lol.

  9. Great leg workout today! I decided to take my last 4 PRIME pills of the day 10 minutes preworkout. My recovery was phenomenal, so maybe it worked

    Post off of memory, so I may be off a little...

    Squats:
    135 X 8
    240 X 8
    275 X 8
    315 X 8
    335 X 6

    I was super pissed after the last set because I KNOW I could have done 8!!!

    Straight-leg Deads:
    135 X 8
    165 X 8
    185 X 10

    Some other people wanted the place I was lifting, so I had to cut this short. I also havent done these in a while, so I didn't know where I was at. Next week will be better

    Goblet Squats:
    45 X 8
    65 X 8
    85 X 8
    85 X 8

    An uncommon lift that is pretty good. You can get really deep on the squat...

    Leg Extension:
    120 X 8
    200 X 8
    250 X 8
    270 X 8
    290 X 8 <-- Personal Record!

    I'm gonna rack that **** next time (305)

    Leg curl:
    150 X 8

    My hamstrings were dead after that, so I called it quits. Next week will be better, because I know I'm going to set a squat record

    Hope everyone had a good day. I'd love to hear about other people's workouts in here, or if you have any suggestions for ME that would be awesome. I'm off to wrestling. Peace.

    By the way I loved prime, glad to see you had a pr on leg extensions. Your leg workout looks good, could you be specific to whether those leg extensions were for the hamstrings or quadriceps.
    doing my own thang!

  11. The leg extensions are for my quads. Just by the way, my quads are getting much bigger and defined since summer. I am very pleased. I may be able to get some photos this weekend

    If you did not do ATG squats, then I recommend you do leg curls for hammies, need to target back and front leg. Glad to hear you are enjoying your stack, pics would be nice.

    I would have, but those stiff-leg deads killed me, lol. I'm off to bed. Later!

    You decided that, did you?
    Haha, cool.

    Uh oh, BUSTED! Lol. Alright, so Snag mentioned it was one way to take PRIME, and I figured he must be doing something right...just look at his log! It worked pretty well too, I had a lot of strength as can be seen by my leg extensions. My endurance seemed pretty good too, and my recovery the next morning is very nice. It's nice to be able to walk

    Last night at wrestling I was wrestling this guy in the neutral position. I pulled his head down like I always try to do, and on his way up he hit my chin super hard. Since then, I almost bit my tongue in half so there are big bite marks on both sides which makes it very uncomfortable to eat, i cant open or close my jaw the entire way (once again, hard to eat), and I had a pounding headache which has since subsided. I wrestling a little more that night and called it quits.

    Now I am faced with the problem of not eating, lol. Nah it's just harder. I'm gonna have a tall frosty mug of MAN UP and tear some shoulders and traps up today!

    This is good to hear, glad you liked.

  19. Good to see,noticed that you were using 5g of creatine, BCAA's, and want beta-alanine which are found in essesntials by cheaper than each of those stuff separate. It also has digestive enzymes which help aid absorption of the supplements as well as helping with stomach health. Look for it at nutraplanet under the Anabolic Innovations section.

    Wow, looks like a great product

    Did back yesterday instead of waiting for Monday. I felt so good that I just had to lift. Had a ton of energy and kept moving with very short rest periods. I did dead lifts, reverse grip standing rows, seated rows, one-arm rows, forearms, abs...what a great lift

    Doing some chest today. Hopefully I can set a record for incline

    Comments on my stack so far. Sex feels a lot better recently. I'm more sensitive, which makes sex shorter. This is not a terrible thing though. Libido is up too. As for strength, it has gone up a little bit, but nothing out of the norm. I'm going to shift to a recomp from a cut because I feel like I could be more successful. Let's see how it goes.

  21. Excellent workout today!

    Chest:
    Incline Barbell Press:
    145 X 8
    205 X 8
    230 X 8 <-- Personal Record
    240 X 4

    Super happy about this PR! Been plateauing on chest as of late.

    Flat Dumbbell Press:
    100 X 9.5
    100 X 9
    85 X 12

    SOB I couldn't get 10 at 100lbs, lol! My record is 110 X 8, so I'm impressed with my work today after incline.

    Then I did a SICK super set: flat barbell bench press with flat flies

    135 lbs on the bench
    35's on the flies

    3 sets of 10 each alternating all in a row. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    After that I did some pec dec and cable work. Good stuff.

    I then had wrestling practice tonight. Ate a ton at the end of the day today. As far as today goes, I am happy with eating more and doing a recomp instead of a cut

  22. All right boys. Today was another leg day. This is one of the primary things that sets a bodybuilder apart from a guy who goes to the gym. Squats are becoming more and more my favorite lift

    I tied my record on squat today 350 X 8, and then I broke my weight record when I did 370 X 4. I'm a little upset because if I hadn't done the 350 set I know I could have done more 370 reps, probably 8. Oh well, next week is going to be sweet

    My previous record on leg press was 590 X 8. Today I said fukc you leg press and did 630 X 8 and 650 X 8 - shatter two personal records on the same exercise in one day! I was so pumped.

    Next came romanian dead lifts. Set two records on this lift too. I did 190 X 8 and then 205 X 8. What an amazing day in the gym it was! But it's not done yet!!

    To top it all off, I set a record on leg extensions when I racked that ****! LOL. I did 305 X 8. I honestly couldn't be happier with how today went. My strength is notably increased on all body parts and I have stayed stagnant on my weight

    I am having a great time on this stack! Anyone else have any good stories?!?!

    Sounds great, good to see you are enjoying the stack. I have had many funny stories as of lately, too many to share.

  24. Great log. I'm in. You should denote your dosing scheme at some point. How you are taking the doses, at what times, with/without food, etc.
