Being the size i am right now I think I would be better off cutting down a class to stand a chance lol, definitely need to keep working on my strength if I want this weight class. I have a lot of fun going to support all my friends and I love the atmosphere.
    Yea I can see how the MMA training would hinder mass gains and strength gains. Hard to fuel fighting and still find enough CNS power to pump out the high end reps. I think you could fight at 220 . Hell just do it for fun lol. I'm lucky in that i'm only 5'10" and in Japan the weight class for Judo stops at 100kgs. So super heavy weight is 220lbs+ As long as I stay under that i'm safe

    Sorry I forgot to respond to this. I do a form of pullovers for lat isolation but the exercise I'm thinking of here is one that Arnold used to do a lot. Pulling from behind your head and over it to squeeze the pecs I guess, and also has some alleged expansion capabilities for the rib cage.

  6. Well things are still going well. I weighed in this morning at 212. I'm still a little upset that I didn't stay at 220 after my last bulk but the gains I'm getting right now seem a little more "solid" so to speak. I dosed some spare A-dex that I had for about 5 days, going .5mg every other day, and my water retention problem seems to be a thing of the past now so I discontinued. A-dex for some reason gives me nasty all day headaches so I try not to use it. I'm wondering if maybe the AI properties of the Transaderm just took a little while to kick in, and perhaps it needed to catch up with the shock I had given my body coming off a cut and going straight to a bulk diet again.
    Either way, things are looking good.

    I've been applying to front delts/pecs now to see if I notice some of that tightening that other users are reporting, I'll be keeping an eye on that.

    My back workouts yesterday were all very focused and I felt stronger than last week yet again. Gonna have to get off flat barbell bench for a little while though and play with the dumbells and declines a little more cuz my shoulder pain is starting again. It happens when I do flat bb bench, the pain isn't there until I rack the weight and take the pressure off my arms, then it feels like someone is trying to tear my arm off at the shoulder lol. Not a good feeling and I definitely want to avoid injury right now.

    DB movements always help me out when I get shoulder pain man. It takes some discomfort away by having each DB being supported individually with your stabilizers. I feel I get more growth from DB movments anyways. Good to see the water retention is going down too.

    Glad to have you here bud. Yeah on some days it just sucks and I have no appetite, really hard to look forward to my meals. I'll have to talk to the doc and see if any heartburn meds would interfere with anything I'm taking. For now I just use Tums.

  13. Back at it again tomorrow after work. Also back on a day schedule thank God!

    I went on a mini vacation saturday/sunday to Mackinac Island with my girlfriend and some of our friends, and let me tell you it is VERY important to have an idea of your friends' diets before you choose to spend two days away from reality with them lol. I found myself starving on numerous occasions and inconvenienced them with my food pit stops a couple times. Sunday it was freaking awful. Ate my last MRP bar before bed saturday night, planning on the continental hotel breakfast in the AM. The breakfast sucked and I ended up going with cereal and apple juice
    Then we went DIRECTLY to the ferry docks and waited half an hour for our boat to take off. Starting to get hungry at this point. I had dosed my Transaderm immediately upon waking so I think not only did I have a spike in appetite but also a slight spike in aggression.
    So we get on the boat, and 20 minutes later we're off the boat and on the island. At this point all I can think about is a big juicy ribeye steak. Also, the alpha male feeling combined with aggression has now made me irritable and longing to be in control of the situation. Another thing I hate about vacations is not feeling in control. I wasn't able to be in control in this situation because it was a "group" thing, and like usual I'm the only normal one that needs to eat more than once every 6 hours lol. So anyways someone mentions lunch and we begin walking door to door, looking at the menus, while I agreed on EVERY place we saw...and after hearing everyone say "this place looks good" and getting my hopes up, on to the next freakin restaurant! Another half hour elapses. At this point I'm beyond the point of irritable and feeling as if I have lost all hope. My girlfriend comments that I look white as a ghost and half asleep. I'm feeling hypoglycemic now. We stop at a place, grab some menus outside to browse, mine falls out of my hands because I'm shaking so bad and weak. Everyone finally notices my state and chose that restaurant I think half out of fear.
    I ordered a cup of chillie for ASAP! and a one pound burger with the works and some fries. Five minutes pass, still no chillie, so I marched up to a waitress and demanded my chillie, which I then got pronto. I threw some ice cubes in it and ate it in probably 3 big bites. A little later I scarfed down my burger and was slowly coming back to life. After that, our meals/pit stops seemed on par.

    The night before, I feasted like a king on a 20 oz steak topped with bleu cheeze and mushrooms, and the other half of my girlfriend's steak burger lol. But no lifting on this whole trip, and I fudged up my day today by sleeping all day, and now I'm off to bed for work in the AM.

    On the bright side, I did manage to rent a tandem bike at the island and pedal my girlfriend and I 8 miles around the island, stopping half way around to hike to the top of a cliff and back down. So maybe that can count for some sort of exercise???? Lol.

    p.s. thinking of bumping up the dose of Transaderm to 8 pumps total, possibly split in two doses.

    Yeah I hear you, life offers you choices and you have to choose the one that has the most pros to cons ratio.

  15. Weighed in at 212 today. Still at 6 pumps. I'm thinking tomorrow shall be the day I up the dose...still in the air though.

    I managed to squeeze an extra meal in earlier today so justify increased caloric intake for this "bulk" but then later in the day I was tied up at work and missed a meal Then I made up for it again after the gym by drinking a big protein shake on the way to get my Hibachi steak and shrimp asian express takeout

    Had a lot of fun in the gym today for bi's and tri's, the pump came on fast and stayed there for well over an hour post workout. I found myself posing on numerous occasions lol. I am noting here that I notice an increased pump/energy when rubbing my Transaderm approx 2 hours pre workout, versus 6-ish hours like most days. I may stick to this.

    Thanks! Not too certain what my bf% is, lost my calipers a few weeks ago. But I am adding some more to my next online purchase so I'll get a measurement then. Pre-cut (about 5 weeks before I started this cycle) it was around 13% if I remember correctly. It's gotta be lower now since my abs were pretty much non existent then IMO.

  20. I slept in late today and haven't eaten much yet but I will be weighing in later.

    My girlfriend came over a couple hours ago, I thought to hang out, but apparently it was to grab all her sh!t and break up with me. We fought for a couple hours and then she left with her stuff, my head is f$cking killing me, focus is sh!t, no idea what's going on right now....need to go to the gym and destroy chest day.
    I probably am going to ruin my diet tonight with a bottle of Jack but that's still in the air for now.

    I found that sticking to a good workout/diet schedule helps me stay sane in rough times like this but for the moment I really don't care about much

    Sh!t dude! Just outta no where? Man that can be rough. When I was going through some tough times with the now wife, I'd just eat it off... Usually by adding a regular meal in... Im gluten intolerant to I really cant eat much, dairy makes me feel worse... so I'd just eat ample amounts of food. Alcohol was never my go to as I have had VERY bad experiences with it.... I'd just eat up a good meal, feel better, and just say whatevers.... call a bro and be like yo dude, having the woman issues.... If she leaves too bad for her cause I'm focused on looking lean and mean. I guess not too bad for her though cause I ended up marrying her lol. Don't sweat it, take a break. the alcohol shouldn't kill you too much though as you're not running the orals. Kill it in the gym (Another thing i'd do if I had the time), and focus on how you can get better in whatever you do. Be selfish now, and focus on yourself. Might be that i'm just a jerk, or found the right girl, but whenever we'd fight I'd always buck it up to "Well if you really feel that way then I guess we are wrong..." Then usually she'd just say she was saying it cause it bothers her, not cause it's impossible to deal with. Relationships are all about who you can live and love with. To say NOTHING bothers you about your significant other is basically lying. I mean there MAY be some of those couples... but I doubt it. Anyway long rant on my part, hopefully you read this and feel better.... if not i'm sorry for taking up so much space in your log lol.

  23. Thanks for the kind words guys.

    The gym definitely helped, had a killer workout, lots of motivation you could say.

    I can understand why she would be upset. Basically she got on AM and looked at all my past posts and was a little overwhelmed. Granted I tried to bring her into this part of my life, telling her what I did on here etc etc, but she thinks I have a secret foul mouth now and a lust for every girl except her I guess. I tried to explain to her that when I post pictures of half naked girls it was for contests and had nothing to do with thinking about other girls over her, she is my world, but I think she was a little to worked up at the time to comprehend that. Hopefully she comes around, cuz without her I guarantee I go back into my hermit lifestyle I had in the past, doing nothing but eat, sleep, work, and live in the gym. She gave me an outlook on life that I never had before and broke me out of my shell, gave me something to look forward to, so I really hope she comes around. In the mean time, I guess I will just do what I do best, eat, sleep, lift!

    I guess you could say this will motivate me to work even harder while using the Transaderm.

    Thanks again fellas! I don't want to turn this into a relationship advice log lol, so with that:

    Increased strength on DB flat press today, 4 sets of 8 reps at 115.
    Followed up with incline bar press, 3x10, rest/pausing 3 times on last set.
    Incline DB flyes, 3x10.
    Low grip cable cross, 2x21.

    Dosed the Transaderm 1 hour before the gym. Left the gym 40 min ago and still very pumped.

    Weighed in at 212 and looking a tad leaner in the mid section.

    Lol. That might not help.

    I think the majority of it though had to do with the way I spoke of my exes. The past is the past, I'm a different dude today.

  26. And your sig doesn't help either lol. Especially reading it while already aggravated...

    Like you said about getting "back to business"~ You got one MEAN bench... man if only I had dumbbells in my home gym... my "Main" gym about 1hr away and a gym I go to like 4 times a year just to go say hello to people has 50kgs (110lbs)DBs but that was it... I remember I could do around 12 reps... I doubt I'd be pulling that off now though lol. My transaderm should be coming in like tomorrow in my box of goodies from home. monday I'll start the rubbing

    Sorry to hear about this. Relationships are always a touchy subject. I have no idea how much you really care or cared about your now ex. So don't take what i will say negative. I have said this in a few threads and live by it my self. But " everything happens for a reason, and nobody but the man upstairs knows the answer." There is obviously something he has in store for you that may be better for you in the long run. I am sure it feels like your world has come crashing down. Keep your head up and keep moving on. Now would be the best time to focus on your training and nutrition. It is much easier sometimes to be able to focus on your self when times are hard. Especially if you have no children to have to worry about. Relationships come and go. We are here to give you what ever support you need my friend.

  29. You have no reason to be upset. If she wanted to be involved of this part of your life...she should have asked to be let in. Not violate your trust by going through your $hit. She wasn't prepared for what she might (or might have not) found. And I hope you hadn't given her a reason to want to do that either (being shady, cheating, etc).

    Bottom line is that men will be men. And when men get together we talk dirty about women (esp Ex'es)....much like women do with men. And for her to get upset over that is just plain childish.

    Sounds like you were dating someone immature. Take your time to grieve and move on. Go f!ck 10 other girls and then tell us how you feel about her.
