    Full update later. I just had to talk about the dream I had the other night.

    I don't remember much of it, but it had the Rock in it. He was getting out of the showers in a tent in a desert. There was also a tornado that I was running from that I had to hide under a high school's bleachers from. And, thereafter, a dozen UFOs outside a tall building I was in. One of the UFO's came directly for the window I was watching out of and shrunk to be able to fit inside the room I was in.

    This is probably the craziest dream I have ever had in my life. I think the TNT with the PowerFULL and ZMK combined for insanity!

    It's also important to note that I always dream in color. I don't care what anyone says. I know I dream in color because they are sooooooooooo vivid and obvious. It's like the colors pop out at me in my dreams. I seem to always subconsciously know that I'm dreaming in my dreams because the color thing is always very striking.

    Oh, and update (thanks to Deuce and MST).

    I will be running TNT+Coleus along with this stack to help recomping purposes. I will dose the stack at it's minimum suggested dosages as to not affect strength gains.

    So that means:
    Divanil 1 three times a day
    T Rez 1 two times a day
    T Force 1 three times a day
    Coleus 1 three times a day

    That, along with everything else that I have been doing. I truly feel that dosing this way will give me the best bang for the buck and still keep this log from being compromised.

    Workout #23: BJJ 4/7/09


    We went over some attacks against good posture when someone is in your guard. I did appreciate one technique very very much. It was tight. A good wristlock that the instructor pulls on me very often.

    Highlights of sparring include almost passing the instructor's guard into side control.

    I also rolled with a big ass dude. He must have been at least 350 but probably somewhere around 400. That was very difficult because he was soooooooooooo huge. I couldn't wrap around him at all. He was also very strong which made things much more difficult.

    I actually had to stop after that because I performed this workout in a fasted state. That wasn't a great idea. I started getting dizzy during the middle of it. By the end, I felt really terrible.

    Increased Strength
    If you guys remember (or look back) this is a substantial weight increase in my front squat. My technique has improved thanks to the powerlifting coach in my class. I actually increased more than I was supposed to because I felt really strong. And, I didn't even fail any of the sets!
    Increased O2 Utilization and ATP
    Definitely.
    Improved Recovery Times Between Sets
    Yes.
    Vastly Increased Muscular Endurance
    By a lot.
    Increased Pump
    Not so much.
    Mood Enhancement
    Yeah, very enthusiastic despite sick feeling.

    Question, hey guys what are your front squat numbers in comparison with your back squat numbers?

    NICE! I knew getting the form down would help with your Front Squats! Getting some coaching was a great idea.

    My Front Squat is currently 305x5, while my Back Squat 5RM is ~395.

    A significant difference is normal between the two - I mean, geez, my Front Squat STILL sucks after working to improve it for almost a year!

    Workout #25: BJJ 4/9/09


    Today was omoplata day. We worked omoplata from guard, from a side control passed position, and transition to armbar series.

    I rolled with the instructor first and learned about two different mistakes I am making when rolling. I am staying to high when I'm in someone's deep half guard. I need to stay low and crush them with my weight.

    I then rolled with three white belts, I was able to triangle all of them and land a couple of armbars. Other than that, I was mainly just working on my crushing and pressure.

    Not really, it's only there for a moment and as of right now I'm only getting up 185lb, not enough to cause any damage.

    Getting the technique right is a pain though, but it's coming along.

    Zercher Squats are hardcore - I prefer Front Squats, but it's a personal preference. Zerchers will definitely get the job done for core and quad development.

    Workout #27: BJJ 4/13/09


    This week, we will be going over the turtle. Specifically, a sweep from turtle grabbing a sleeve and rolling through your shoulder and then a kimura from that same failed sweep. This is really just a return to a lesson I've had already.

    I first rolled with a fellow blue belt. I beat him on points with various sweeps, but did not get a submission. I did make the same mistake twice however in trying to pass half guard I shifted my weight too much to one side allowing him to easily bump me over. I need to keep those types of mistakes from happening if I want to do well in tournaments.

    Next I rolled with a white belt and tweaked my knee. I sat the rest of that round out.

    I rolled with a purple belt. This was an interesting match because it told me two things: 1 I need to get a little more aggressive and 2 I'm not that far off in skill level from a purple. However, that little bit of experience goes a long way in my case. He submitted me countless times. He is very good, but I don't think I can learn from rolling with him just yet.

    I rolled with a buddy of mine, he has close to a hundred pounds on me, and last time I allowed him to take it to me. This time I decided I would be very aggressive and it paid off. I was able to submit him with some type of choke I had never done before. I don't even know the name of it, but it was difficult due to his size and strength.

    Decent night.
