    I forgot to add that I am in line for my purple belt now sometime over the next few months. It depends how frequently I can make it to train with Ronny Lis, our new resident BB.

    I usually can't close because my thighs are too big, but the angle was perfect and I didn't want to have the guy roll into guard (we were on our sides and he was starting to roll). Plus, I kept losing my hook with my left foot and I sure as hell wasn't going to cross my ankles.

    I remember Fedor looking pissed when he watched Mirco knock his brother out. Well, pacing back & forth for Fedor is about as emotional as he gets.

    Apparently he was cussing in Russian. Fedor simply showing emotion is pissed off for him.

    On Wednesday, I went to MMA and trained a lot of BJJ and actually did some striking for the first time since mid-August. The intensity was very high during the grappling sessions and I was able to get an armbar, clock-choke, and modified guillotine. I did get trapped in a arm-triangle choke, but that was the only submission against me.



    9/18-Back

    Pull-ups- BWx15
    BB Rows-225x12, 245x12, 255x12
    HS Neutral Rows-180x12, 200x10, 210x10
    Twisting Cable Rows-140x12, 180x10, 200x8
    DB Rows-130x10-rest-x5
    Straight Arm Pulldowns-55x10, 70x10

    DC Stretches

    Great training session that I was looking forward to all week. Back is by far my favorite part to train and it has always been one of my strongest muscle groups. My forearms were burnt out from grappling and my other training sessions, so I had to really focus on getting a really good handle on the weight before starting. I've also lowered the weight considerably on BB Rows to accommodate my erectors that have been stiff lately. To compensate, I really slowed the eccentric portion of the rep. I added a little extra volume today just because I felt as though my body could handle it.

    DC Stretches

    I had to push this session back to today; yesterday, I had the worst headache of my life and was basically on the couch until about 4PM. I felt better today, but I was still not in top shape. BTW, this is not related to the cycle; it's completely sinus related from all of the rain we've had in the area and now everything is blooming.

    It took a few minutes to get the blood flowing during this session, but I really started to get going after some Lamb of God and Hatebreed. Really, really strong M-M connection and a hell of a pump despite a lack of solid nutrition the past 2 days. One thing I have noticed is that there was very little DOMS in my back from Friday despite the brutal session I had. My weight has been holding steady in the 202-205 area depending on time of day.

    Observations so far:

    1. Muscle fullness is very high along with increased vascularity
    2. No lethargy, restlessness, acne, prostate issues so far
    3. Recovery is much higher
    4. Steady strength gains
    5. Appetite is slightly higher
    6. No increased aggression (can be good or bad, depending on situation)
    7. No bloating or joint issues

    Ok there has been some concern that Anabolic Innovations just put out a product that no information was given. I am not sure what type of info we could have given as this is a first for this type of PH. There were 2 testers who tested this before any of the loggers and I am going to post the after blood work for each of them tomorrow. At least one of the testers ran only a Post Cycle Support pct. I am not telling people to run that only for pct as pct is a personal decision. I hope the blood work will clear some of the concerns. I will update the thread tomorrow with where it is posted.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    I have toremifene on hand just in case I feel really shutdown. As of now, I am feeling zero signs of major shutdown (lethargy, irritability, etc.). I made the decision to ingest this compound and I assume all of the risks. No one forced me to run this.

    That being said, there really is so little info on all of the DS currently out there that it is ludicrous to criticize AI for releasing this.

    Great session. Amazing pump in both my chest and biceps. It was to the point where I couldn't grab my seatbelt when I got back to my car. Usually, this session takes around 70 minutes, but, today, it only took 55 minutes from warm-up to stretching. My weight has been holding steady in the 202-205 range and muscles are full throughout the day. One thing I am not noticing, which is a pleasant change, is that I am not experiencing any hypoglycemia or irritability later in the night.

    Sadly, people are hating on Mirco on other MMA forums. There has been a trend of people judging Mirco's legacy, based on his latest performances and a couple of hosts from either MMAJunkie or one of Sherdog's shows said something along the lines of, "maybe Mirco was never that good...." and it's being spread like gospel. It's rather lame.

    To liven up the weekend, a little Don Frye



    I had to skip legs this week because my knees have been cranky; I'm not sure if it's from the cynostane or this cold that I've been battling this week. However...

    9/25-Back
    HS High Rows-145x10, 2x155x10
    Wide Lat Pulls-200x10, 210x10
    Cable Rows-3x200x12
    HS Underhand Rows-140x12, 2x165x10
    Unilateral D-Handle Pulls**-2x70x12
    Hypers-BW+25x15, 2xBW+45x12

    DC Stretches

    **Started with a neutral grip and supinated to the chest

    This was a great session I had a couple of extra days of rest to get over a little fever and geared up for this day. Back is my favorite day of the week and I always bring my best intensity to these days. I decided to change it up a bit and hit a few lifts I haven't done in awhile. As a result, I got a huge pump and the DOMS has hit, but in a different way than usual. My mid-back is really sore and the lower portion of my lats are more sore than usual. I'm about half-way through my cycle and still have experienced very little to no side effects. I've had a small amount of lethargy, increased appetite, and increased muscle fullness. I'll write my full observations so far after my session today.

    First, before my updates, a little MMA history:

    Long before there was Anderson Silva, there was Jose Landi better known as "Pele"



    9/26-Delts/Triceps/Traps

    10 minutes elliptical

    CG-225x12, 245x10, 275x5
    Smith Military Press-135x12, 145x10, 185x6
    Unilateral Side Laterals/Overhead DB Ex-35x12, 40x10, 45x10/3x35x8
    Pressdowns/Reverse Flys-150x15, 2x165x12/3x40x12
    Smith Shrugs-315x12, 365x10, 385x7
    Upright Rows-95x10, 105x10

    DC Stretches

    3-5 minute rounds of heavy bag

    Gihugen pump in every muscle worked along with a great M-M connection. I took 400mg of sulbutiamine before this session and it really kicked in about halfway through the session and carried me until the end. I wasn't tired when I was through, but I knew I had been training long enough for the day and was starting to get hungry. One thing I have noticed recently is better sleep, which is highly unusual for me while using any compound. I don't wake up during the night and wake up much earlier than usual.

    Nice. Those up kicks were brutal and that straight kick to the face while that guy was sitting against the corner was pretty awesome. He really does remind me of Anderson Silva.

    9/29-Chest/Biceps

    Dips-BW+90x5, 2xBW+100x3
    Flat DB Presses-2x80x8
    Incline Flys/DB Curls-3x50x12/3x50x8
    HS Preacher Curls-100x15, 125x10, 125x10-drop-80x12
    HS Decline-100x15, 125x10
    CrossOvers/High Cable Curls-2x70x12/2x50x12, 50x12-drop-25x12

    DC Stretches

    This was by far the best session that I've had on this cycle. Weight is up to 207 and strength is climbing; not so much in numbers, but my intraset recovery is much better and DOMS is almost non-existent, even though I've added extra sets and drop sets. One thing I've noticed from this cycle is a higher appetite and zero water retention. It reminds me of a more anabolic MOHN (that's an old-school reference for you).

    9/29-Cardio/BJJ

    Today, I decided to get back on the mat, especially since this past weekend was ADCC. A nice MMA compilation:



    I worked mainly from my guard and went for sweeps and triangles. One of the weakness of my game has been my lack of submissions from my guard. Outside of basic armbars, omoplatas, and gogoplatas, I don't have too much in my arsenal. I much prefer to have top position, preferably half-guard. I have really been working my Brabo choke and Japanese Necktie lately and have really gotten them down to where I can pull it off on most of the purple belts we have. I didn't get overly winded and my arms didn't burn out at any point during the session, which they usually do at some point from working these particular chokes.

    I also went for a 2-mile run after BJJ, but it was more for just general caloric expenditure instead of performance. All in all, I felt really good during training and have noticed some fantastic sleep over the past few days.
