    Good to hear. My initial post marriage weight gain lasted until about 54 days ago, but wanting to be lean or just wanting to be size'y is a matter of season and mind state. I'd been wanting to cut for a year now, but there was no drive or desire to do so, therefore, I just got hulky. However, I'm glad to be cutting again, but I've still got a good ways to go.

    There are definitely pictures. I took them in two different lighting. One of them makes me look like an off-season Lee Priest and the other makes me look like some impressive beast. The latter has all types of shades and shadows that over-exaggerate whatever is there, so I'll have to reluctantly go with the off-season Lee Priest pics for integrity. I also have to admit, I was a bit underwhelmed by the way my progress appears in a 2D picture, because I feel pretty lean in real life, but the pictures were a bit disappointing for me.

    I won't forget the dates of when these pictures were taken either. I'm a big fan of the band 311 and today is 311 day (3/11/2011).

    Oh for sure. I don't train my O-lifts for optimal power, but I do them for the various other benefits. I keep the rep ranges on Snatches and Cleans around 5 reps if I can, which isn't optimal for optimal power (redundant). Generally speaking, I open up my delts day or a traps emphasized day with them. Starting off on the snatches really recruits the shoulder stabilizers, recruits a healthy amount of motor units in my traps and delts and my military presses actual improve if I perform military's following O-lifts, then not.

    Furthermore, keeping the rep ranges high is very metabolic, especially since I rest (briefly) like a bodybuilder in between sets, rather then a power lifter with ample rest. None of these things equates to optimal power, but I use them to assist in my bodybuilding efforts. If I were using the O-lifts for sports or some kind of competitive nature, then I'd of course switch the focus to singles and triples.

    I'm sure you'll recognize these babies!!

    I really don't know why I went with bowling shoes red. My previous O-shoes were [plain white and black, but I guess I was feeling boisterous the night I clicked "purchase" on these.

    Yes. I took two doses, 3caps AH/3caps AL in the AM and 3AH/3AL again about 8 hours later yesterday and today I've only had my AM dosage.

  14. Day 2 AH/AL


    Overhead Squats
    95lbs x 5 reps
    100lbs x 5 reps
    110lbs x 5 reps
    120lbs x 4 reps
    130lbs x 3 reps

    Back Squats
    225lbs x 5 reps
    275lbs x 5 reps
    315lbs x 5 reps
    335lbs x 5 reps
    355lbs x 3 reps

    Front Squats
    185lbs x 5 reps
    205lbs x 5 reps
    225lbs x 5 reps
    245lbs x 5 reps
    265lbs x 5 reps
    295lbs x 3 reps

    Cardio: Stairclimber 25mins

    Decent workout. I wasn't initially shooting for 5's today, but I'm not a morning lifter, I just don't feel nourished enough and going above 5 even on 135lbs felt way too heavy then it should have, so I opted for 5's today. I also wouldn't have done so many sets except that this is my fourth time doing squats in many, many months, so I'm still in a feeling out stage of establishing where my base and peak performance is at. My back squats were no different then the last time I performed squats, except that I wasn't able to rep it into the 8's-10'a, however, my front squats reached a new peak; 225lbs last session to 295lbs today, but I simply attribute that to myself acclimating to squats again, I've yet to truly find my ceiling strength.

    It'll be easier to assess performance on something more established like chest, shoulders and back days. Squats are relatively new for me at this point, in that its been awhile since I've trained them with legitimacy due to chronic low back issues as a result of a previous slip disc. Apart from that, it was a so-so workout. I'm not particularly jazzed by it, but I'm having fun revisiting squats again.

  15. What do you guys feel about real jogging? I tried to avoid jogging around during my cut so far, in order to avoid much catabolism, so I've stuck primarily to machines, stair-climber, stair-stepper, tread-mill, cross-trainer... but should I not worry about the risk of too much muscle breakdown from jogging now that I'm on AH/AL?

    I really wasn't satisfied with my cardio this morning, so I'll probably go to a nearby park and run around or SOMETHING. I probably can't jog today because of squats this morning, but what's the verdict on 2-3 miles jogs while on AH/AL? Yay or nay?

    Oh ya Do-Wins they are actually really good being that they are so cheap. I had a custom pair of Adidas that were well over 300 and it turns out my favorite were a pair of 80 dollar Do-wins that I won, lol. The Chinese love a higher heel, as do I so they were perfect.

    Eh, imo if your goal is to drop the fat, then drop the fat, as in yes do cadio. Best time is now since you are on AH/AL take advantage of it and get in the cardio. Reach your goal faster with minimal loss. You could always just do sprint work as well as opposed to low intensity long duration cardio.

    I totally want a higher heel. My current Do-Wins are suppose to be a touch higher in the heel then my previous VS Athletics, but there's no way I can afford the fancy Addidas ones. I'd have to be competitive to justify spending that much for myself.

    I like watching the Chinese National Team videos on YouTube.

    SPRINT work is my preferred method, but the park nearest me is full of holes, not just in an area, but the entire park and the nearest High School track is in use for PE and that's awkward. They showed up once in the middle of my HIIT and it was just awkward so I left, but I suppose if I wanted to bad enough I could find a way.

  24. ZUFFA PURCHASES STRIKEFORCE


    LAS VEGAS -- In a transaction that will forever change the mixed martial arts world, Zuffa, the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has purchased its top competitor, Strikeforce.

    UFC president Dana White spoke to MMA Fighting exclusively about why the historic purchase happened, the terms of the deal, what this means for the Strikeforce brand and fighters and much more.

    The AndroLean small dosage of test should help with fighting of muscle breakdown, allowing you to do alittle more, per se, without taking the usual risks.
    Just inject.

    That was the aspect I was considering. Also, the Androhard ought to help in the anti-catabolism as well.

    I know that Dana said that everything will run as usual, but he also said the same thing when they bought out PRIDE. Make no mistake about it, this will really hurt the business.

    For example, when Vince McMahon bought out ECW and WCW, the product of the WWE began to suffer. Granted, it's pro-wrestling, but it is always a bad thing when there is not competition amongst promotions. Throw in the fact that Japanese MMA is practically dead (Shooto, Sengoku, Dream) and you have, for the first time, an American dominance in MMA promotions.

    Good improvement, moved your grip out and finished your extension at the top. However I would call those more of a hip snatch than a hang snatch.
