    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

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.
    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.

    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.

    I wasn't aware he expressed the same thing when he bought PRIDE. What do you see in the future as a consequence of this transaction?

    Yeah, not quite hang, hang, I used to do them from a fully erect position until I saw one of those Chinese National Team guys do it from a slight bend at the hip, which gave me the idea to try them and of course its a little easier from a bent hip position then fully erect position.

  23. Try doing them from blocks. Just set the blocks under the bumper plates, and the height just below your knee. Allows you to get the correct position, and work on extension< should be all speed from that hang clean spot.

    That would be ideal, but I don't have any blocks to work with and the parallel stopper bars on the power rack or squat rack are at a width where it would rest on your knuckles, but that's a good idea. I'll see what I can do with that idea.

  25. Do you think you could set the bar on a bench, in the center of the bar if blocks aren't available? The height might be a little higher than wanted but it could be a start.

    I could give that a shot. Maybe I'll try that this coming Tuesday when we hit O-lifts and delts. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I'm actually a bit neutral about this at the moment. I can see Strikeforece benefiting from the UFC's marketing power, but we'll see.

    Yes you can just not as ideal, I used to do this with snatch pulls.

  32. Androseries Day 3


    My legs are remarkably absent of any DOMS following yesterday's legs day and my back had very minimal DOMS from Friday. I could hardly tell I even worked legs yesterday, which is great. If my recovery is this effective on all body parts, I can up the frequency of my lifts and really take advantage of some growth.

    Interesting, Eric said by day 4 on AH he was already noticing effects.


  34. That sounds very good to me. My recovery is paramount at my age.

    Compound the fact that my legs should still be going through some virgin DOMS, given that this is only my 3rd or 4th time working legs in many, many months. I've not even established where my current ceiling strength on squats are yet. Squats are currently new enough that I'm putting up dramatically higher weight and/or volume with each session.

    Hey Barbell, I'm glad you joined in. I'm hoping the AH/AL will help tie in the final stage of my cut.
