    thats just wide hips, which make you better at powerlifting, strength sports, power, etc. Think of Jay Cutler, dude has a wide ass waist, but there isnt an ounce of fat on it.

    I HIGHLY suggest you to call and see if you can switch to a Large instead. Letting it all hang out my naval is out more. Pulling my insides in tight gets me to a 37" which is a 5 inch difference. I have plenty of rings to get bigger, but only like 4 to get smaller. You dont need a XL.

  6. Ok, it's taken care of. They'll have to specially make a L in royal blue though, so it's gonna take a while to get here.

  7. Good stuff in here Resolve, seems like the product is good to go. Good to see the elbows are still holding up too! Nice on that belt! I have no waist at all and the thickness of the Inzer belts unfortunately don't play well with my lower ribs. I have to have a contoured one as well.

    ive always found that both really cool and a big pain that these types of high end belts are made individually rather than produced in large enough quantities to ensure same day or next day shipping. At least you know your getting the best quality!

  9. Had a crappy couple of workouts over the past few days. I won't bore you with the details, but my strength was just not on par.

    Missed 505 on 4" Def Deads twice, and the next day barely got out a double with 295 on floor press.

    It's my research. I have a very important exam coming up in a few weeks and preparing for it is taking all my time and generating an unprecedented amount of stress. I've begun having trouble sleeping due to it as well.

    I'll get through this, it's just another hoop I have to jump through, but until it's done, my athletic performance is probably going to suffer a bit.

  10. Key thought here is that you will jump thru it. The difficult is the most satisfying when accomplished Nick. These are times that you will look back on with alot of pride.

    Try adding in an extra day of recovery on your body parts. Stress slows down recovery, you may be able to get better lifts with an extra day of rest between the times you are working out.

    I found that stuff 10 years ago, had to go looking for it in an Asian market after it was on the table in a restaurant. I'm wandering through the place, taller than EVERYTHING, looking for a rooster bottle. It has been called 'kok sauce' ever since.

  17. Love some Sri Lanka sauce, and I have called it Kock Sauce for quite a while too.

    So what is the weight looking like right now are you still able to hold on to or keep making slow gains?

    HappY Easter by the way!

    248 as of this morning, and yesterday was a fasting day so I always come in pretty light after those.

    But on lifting days, yeah, I can typically weigh in at the upper 250s lower 260s.

    Weight fluctuates a LOT on this kind of diet, but I've gained a good 4lb on XFA without increasing cals at all.

    Wow, great gains with XFA but also your weight with visible abs is damn impressive! Congrats on obtaining so much muscle!

    Thanks! With the exception of 1 Epi cycle that I used to try and get rid of some pubertal gyno (you can see my chest is still a bit uneven in the pics I posted up a few weeks back), I haven't used anabolics.

    That will likely change, though.

    glad to hear it brother! the word is getting out!

  29. Final Review:

    Beginning Weight: 242
    Ending Weight: 248.5
    -- All weights taken following approximately 24hr fasting --

    No change to my daily intake, making for an impressive 6.5 gained.

    Strength:
    Floor Press (Initial): 285x3
    Floor Press (Final): 315x3

    No increase in squat or dead, but also saw large increases in my push press.

    I dosed at 8 caps per day on lifting days (4 before each workout), and 5 on recovery days.

    Other Effects:
    For the first couple of weeks I noticed definite anti-anxiety, mood elevating effects. This subsided with continued use, so that by the end of the run, I could no longer "feel" that I was on anything. I did not note any increased "muscle fullness" or pump that other users have related beyond the initial week or so. Weight gain could possibly be due to edema, as I seem to be holding water from XFA. Whether or not these gains are LBM or just water will be seen with the passage of time.

    I did not see the 40% increase in strength that the package claimed to elicit. I do not know what the conditions of the clinical study were, though, so it could have easily been performed on an untrained population or subjects differing from me in some other capacity.

    Also, the lack of strength increases in my squat and dead could be due to the large amounts of stress that I'm currently enduring due to my academic research.

    Whatever the case, I thoroughly enjoyed using XFA, my bench went up significantly and I gained what appears to be 6.5lb. I wouldn't sing its praises from the rooftops, but I now have a solid respect for this product.
