After church yesterday, I just stuck around the house. I wasn't in the zone to bring legs home, so I'm gonna hit them tonight along with delts/traps after my session with the chiropractor after work.

And I haven't actually had any back problems in terms of pain or anything, but I'd been thinking I had one leg longer than the other and noticing a shoulder rolled forward. It had gotten to the point that it was agonizingly noticeable (if you check out some of my Hawaii pics, Beast, you can see when I rest with my arms at my sides, my left arm ends up almost in front of me instead of at my side). I have zero pain, but with all the lifting it just seemed to be making it worse. Turns out I have a pelvic imbalance (hence one leg feeling longer when it isn't) and he's also gonna work on getting my shoulders back even (I'm guessing the leg led to that problem).

Near the bottom of the page. I doubled it when I did my recipe and added in 4 scoops of WPI (30g protein/scoop). Mixed it in a huge bowl with an electric beater and it fit perfectly into my 9"x13" cake pan. I baked mine for an hour and probably could have let it go for a bit longer, but I wouldn't risk it (it browned up on top just a bit; not burnt). I also added maybe another 1/3 cup of milk and added a dash more of the vanilla and cinnamon. I just used skim milk and not a low-carb milk. Everything I saw that was lost its protein, so it wasn't worth it to me for how little milk was in it anyway.

Total Workout Time: 64 minutes
The two delt workouts were supersetted into my first two leg workouts. Numbers on both extensions and curls went up across each set, so that's good. In all honesty, I was feeling sick down in the pit of my chest, so I didn't push the workout past what I did. On top of that, my right knee felt bruised right around the 3rd set or so of the extensions right off the bat. I shouldn't have even pushed that many sets past, but I did. There was no way I was going to squat or press, though, with that tweaked the way it was. I've done that before and I'd rather have one subpar workout than be sidelined for weeks.
It's odd, though, because the feeling in my chest reminds me of not having eaten enough, yet my metabolism still hasn't bounced to where it needs to be. So I've got the worst of both worlds lol. I've got the slow metabolism, but I get the feeling that my body has burned through its energy sources almost instantly.
6/28/11 - Basketball for ~2 hours
This was the longest we've played over at the church, yet. We only had 5 again, so it was 2 on 2 and one person would sit. I played the first game and was horribly winded. This is the second time I've played since being back from Hawaii and I took last week off because I worked late. It's also the first time I've played since I stopped taking my T4 on Saturday. I had a throbbing pain in the right side of my stomach, which had me a bit worried. I opted to sit the 2nd game just because I couldn't play through even if I wanted to. After that, though, it was enough time for me to cool down and feel good. I didn't sit the rest of the time and played another 4 or 5 games (maybe 6, I don't know how many lol) and felt surprisingly good the rest of the way.
I had two 32 oz Gatorades with 12g of 4:1:1 BCAAs added into each that I drank throughout. I used to try to not take in the extra sugar, but when I play basketball, I don't care anymore and honestly, I need it.
Overall it felt great, though.
I called the doctor's office yesterday and they said that my blood results were, in fact, in (from being done just shy of 2 weeks ago). I asked if they could fax the results to me and she said yes, but not until the doctor had looked at it first. So, not only have I been waiting 2 weeks for them to get processed and back, but now that they are, they won't let me look at them before the doctor does. I'm not too happy about that, but getting upset doesn't do any good. I'm going to call again this afternoon and ask if I don't hear from them first. I'll be polite, but will basically tell them that this is my well-being we're talking about and I just want to know what the results show.
As much as I don't like the idea of being on T3 for life, it still would explain everything and I would know what I'm actually dealing with. That being said, I was praying last night before I went to bed that these tests would confirm that.
I'll update when I know anything.

I love basketball. When i was in college and grad school we'd run up to 10 games a night and be out there for about 3 hours 4-5 days a week. I can't wait to be back in that condition from an aerobic standpoint.

6/29/11 - Chest
Incline Bench Press: 135x10/185x10/225x10/245x7/255x5/265x3/225x10/185x10

Decline DB Bench Press: 90's x 12 / 90's x 12 / 90's x 12
Inclines felt great. Numbers and strength went up from last week and I'm slowly getting back to where my strength was on it before leaving for Hawaii (i.e. at my all-time best). After 8 sets on incline, I was pretty worthless on flat bench. Also, I started getting sore in my left front delt, and I didn't realize until after that I'd just done delts/traps between my leg work on Monday, so that was pretty short rest for me to hit chest.
Not a phenomenal day by any means, but the additional strength on incline was nice.

I also need to note that about a week ago, I've noticed some pimples popping up here and there; nothing major at all, but I rarely get them, so it's quite probably that it's due to the increase in testosterone production due to the Titanium namely (DAA never did this to me).

That's off the top of my head without my notebook; I just can't remember if I did a 4th set of decline or not lol.
It was a good workout; chest was pumped, but I still just feel very apathetic toward the workouts.

Another is I tell people to drop barbell for a month or two and do nothing but DB's, flat DB, incline DB, personally not a fan of decline anything, so just flat and incline, lol. Then come back to barbell.
It's funny cuz it's a fine line, it is true that the best way to get numbers up on lifts is to do that actual lift, like squats for instance, the best way to get your squat up is to....squat! But on the flip side, you keep doing the same damn lift time and time again and eventually it starts to make it go DOWN instead.

I had a good back day on Saturday; took yesterday off and am probably gonna hit delts/traps tonight and maybe do some leg work, too. I'll post up the numbers at some point lol.
