    Great session from today. Had a hell of a pump and intensity throughout the session and pulled some great numbers. I didn't set any PRs, but I was really close to my best on the HS and DB Rows (only lacked reps, not weight). Weight is still holding about the same, but I am starting to feel increased fullness in my muscle bellies.

    This session was a little on the slower side from a speed and intensity standpoint. Still had a good pump, M-M connections, and strength, but didn't have the same speed and tenacity as usual. One thing that I have already noticed is a lessening of DOMS. Very little of my back is sore, even though I had a brutal session and pushed some great weights. I've also noticed that my hamstrings feel much better as well. I'm going to slowly progress the numbers and add in some sets if my body feels up to it.

  7. 9/14-Chest/Biceps

    Dips-BW+90x5, 2xBW+100x3
    HS Incline-100x10, 110x8
    Incline Flies/Cambered Curls-2x50x12, 55x12/95x10, 2x100x8

    High Crossovers-60x15, 70x12-drop-40x15
    Crossover Curls-40x12-drop-20x12

    Holy, balls...this was a hell of a pump. Strength was high and I had the kind of contractions that felt like a cramp. I live for sessions like this. Aggression was high for the entire session and I could have kept training despite the drop sets, which were brutal. My weight today was 205 (take it with a grain of salt), but I had some sesame chicken and egg drop soup last night. I'm starting to fell muscle fullness all day long, which is always fun.

  10. I went to MMA practice last night after my second class (I hate Monday's: class from 8-11 and 3:30-6:30). I didn't train any striking and taught some basics to some new guys and then rolled for about 45 minutes. I don't really count any of the matches between the neophytes and me, but I did roll with a newly crowned brown and a blue. The brown belt has a tricky scissors half-guard that I struggle to pass. I used a basic wrestling technique and pulled clasped my hands together and pulled his legs out to advance to side-mount. From there, I went for a spinning, far-side armbar, but failed to finish. After a scramble, I ended up back in half-guard; however, this time, he left his arm in and I was able to secure a Brabo choke. Game over. Next match was pretty much the same story: scissors half-guard and moving for position. This time, I was able to clasp my hands together with a Gable grip and lock in a Japanese Necktie. Game over.

    For those not familiar:


    The match with the blue was almost like grappling myself: we both have long arms and favor chokes, especially D'Arce, Brabo, and Anaconda chokes. I worked to side-mount and secured a kimura before he rolled and we had a hell of a scramble. We both ended back in the starting before I sprawled out and took his back. It was a hand fight at that point and I secured a body triangle before locking in the RNC.

    I felt really good during the class and one thing I definitely noticed was the endurance in my forearms/biceps. Usually after a bicep session, I have about 5 seconds before I start to lose my grip or cramp, but I had none of that today. I feel physically stronger and I can definitely feel the recovery accelerating.

    Later today is legs...I'm going to try 225 on Front Squats. We'll see how it goes; I've done this many times in the past, but I hope my core is ready for it.

  11. 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.

  12. Very nice work man!! I'd kill to have legs long enough to body triangle someone.Then again, I'm not near as good as you, but it's more like a fun way for me to get my cardio in. Gratz on the purple belt test!!

    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.

    Felt like ass the whole day; had a horrible allergy attack from all of the rain we've had down here over the past week. I had to pry myself off of the couch to go train. Needless to say, not a great session for me.

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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.

    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.

    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

  29. 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.
