  1. You have your work cut out for you as far as getting water off do you have any water tricks you plan on employing to help out? Lots of asparagus will help get rid of some of the water. You could also do the hot bath with epson salts to pull some of the sub-q water off your body too.

    I am actually surprised with you being under 10% that you are even still having your cycle. I often read about women sub 10% saying they don't have their menstrual cycles anymore. Several times I wanted to ask but didn't want to seem intrusive.

    I'm using Taraxatone at 9 caps daily - that usually helps me a lot (although I generally use 6 caps daily for five days and not 9 caps for three days). Cutting out the carbohydrates from now on as well - all I will get is what is the minimal amount from my almonds and MuscleGels.

    You can always ask anything you want to, Chris - anyone can, and I will or will not answer it. As far as my cycle, I've had it regularly since I've been in the US (and started using products with AI properties, to be more precise - even more screwed up) - just another thing that indicates the anomaly my body is. I know, I've read the same thing many times and heard it said that, and also the fact that if a female misses it she has the Female Athlete Triad, etc., which I know in my case could not be further from the truth, because UNDEeating has never been an issue with me. That said, there are always exceptions to the "norm", and everything should ALWAYS be taken on an individual basis.

    Right, time for my first resistance session of the day - doing Arms/Abs first, Shoulders/Hamstrings later this evening.

  3. Sounds like you have a good plan. That taraxatone is no joke, if you are holding water it should take care of it for sure.

    Chris wait and see how you look after the EPI-V, I never got that much drying using the quick methods like I did with the slow method epi-v afforded me. Yah taraxatone is strong but it can leave you flat, I had some luck recovering some extra carbs and potassium the first time I tried it....

    Indeed it is not, and it is the ONLY diuretic product that I have used (and yes, I tried several - just to see if they did the same when one I used when I couldn't get Taraxatone caused me to HOLD water) that works WITH my body, so I treat it like gold, especially now that it has been discontinued. I hope it helps!

    Chris will be ok, Doug, but I need that "quick fix" (as much as I hate to say it) this week, and besides, I'm not going to go the hormonal route to get dry. Once this week is over though, I'm going to just make sure I DO GET LEANER, and hope that helps me dry out more (should, with the help of Erase - which I have gone back to using 2/2/1 this week instead of Erase Pro in the morning and Erase 2/1 pm).

    Oh yah I know, I used a quick hitter last year as I waited too long after finishing EPI-V to peak.. to tell you the truth it never occurred to me to try a slower method. I would live to know how much dandelion root they are using in EPI-V to cause this slower effect. Mght be a combination of the DHT precursor and herb though. Later when I compared my Epi-V peak to my contest peak it was obvious that I was drier with the Epi-v but you know what they say about hindsight. This year I wll peak for pics at the right time. Live and learn. I don't know if these products that work faster really work for me anyway. They seem to work better for others than they do for me. Fuggin water management in the body drives me batty..

    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "I'm training until I fall apart." - Kim Wathen

    For the complete Motivational, review Until I Fall Apart| Rosie's MuscleRevolution.


    TRAINING

    Session 1

    Run 3 miles

    Arms/Abs (30 sec recovery between trisets):
    TriSet A -
    1. Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls 5 x 6
    2. Dips 5 x 8
    3. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    TriSet B -
    4. Incline Alternate DB Bicep Curls 5 x 10, 10, 10, 9, 8 per side
    5. Rope Tricep Push-Down 5 x 8, 8, 8, 8, 6
    6. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    TriSet C -
    7. DB Zottoman Curls 5 x 8
    8. Standing DB French Press 5 x 8, 6, 6, 6, 6
    9. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    TriSet D -
    10. Weighted DB Crunch (on bench, knees at 90 degrees) 5 x 15
    11. Pikes (on bench) 5 x 15
    12. Skip 5 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet -
    13. Standing Alternate DB Hammer Bicep Curls 1 x 30
    14. Push-Ups (feet on floor, hands on fists under chest) 1 x 8
    15. Plank x 1 min
    16. Skip x 100 revolutions

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Recline Bike 20 min @ 110-112 rpm

    Stretch 27 min

    Actually went to bed EARLY (well, early for me) last night and didn't take me long to fall asleep either - guess the stress is at the point where my mind just wants to shut down, but can't, although it will now allow for some hibernation. Woke a couple of times in the morning, but eventually got ~8 hours sleep and woke feeling slightly refreshed. Took me a while to get going, but once I did...Familiar route was ran on this morning. Weather is a good ~30 degrees Fahrenheit LESS here than in Texas, which suits me just fine (doesn't make running outside hard on my breathing), and run was ok. Not the fastest, given that I gained ~10 pounds from yesterday to this morning - a lot of it food and water weight though - and was feeling sluggish...Then to the gym, oh so ready to hit the weights (three days without a resistance session is almost like torture)! Did Arms/Abs instead of Shoulders/Hamstrings (relegated to pm training), making sure it was non-stop-on-the-go time. After last week I was shocked to find that my strength re Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls has gone down again, barely managing the six reps I did for each set, having to do the last couple of reps on the last couple of sets as half-reps, left wrist aching. Dips were fine, and given my increase in overall body mass, showing strength is fine here. Skipping was a little bit of an effort and my trackies kept "catching" the rope, which did not make for a good mood with it. Incline Alternate DB Bicep Curls were fine - seeing the double-veins in my biceps here and enjoying the pump. There was no V-Bar at the gym, so used the rope instead re Tricep Push-Downs. Skipping was frustrating and I had to go slower. DB Zottoman Curls were fine - strength up from last week. DB French Press was ok - right rear delt started pinching sharply from the third set though. Skipping finally falling into a rhythm here. Abs were all fine - not really feeling it too much today, which was a bit odd. Added in a quadset to complete my session, making sure I could feel the burn and pain - definitely felt on the Plank re delt/biceps' tendons in BOTH arms...Because I have to, 20 minutes on the Recline Bike - burning my legs and dripping sweat like tears - ended Training Session 1...

    Session 2

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 8 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 4 min jogging

    Shoulders/Hamstrings (30 sec recovery between supersets):
    SuperSet A -
    1. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press 6 x 10, 10, 10, 10, 8, 8
    2. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions
    SuperSet B -
    3. BB Military Press 6 x 8
    4. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions
    SuperSet C -
    5. Plate Lateral Raises 6 x 10
    6. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions
    SuperSet D -
    7. Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts (BB to touch floor) 6 x 10
    8. Skip 6 x 100 revolutions

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Rollers 20 min in 39x18 @ 120 rpm

    Wasn't really feeling it when I headed out to start off my Training Session 2. HIIT was ok - short today, since I DID do two HIIT Runs on the weekend...Then down to the basement to hit the weights. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press was ok until the third set, when my right rear delt started stinging sharply - managed to force out another set of 10 reps before the pain limited the last two sets on reps. BB Military Press was ok, although less reps than last week, feeling in my right anterior delt a grinding, albeit without pain. Right delt was starting to be an overall hassle by the time it came to Plate Lateral Raises and I just wanted them over and done with. I was tempted to not even do the Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts, but did them because I have to. Lightheaded during most of my skipping, definitely noticing the difference in not having used Assault pre-training (noticed this morning as well - especially re energy and alertness) - although could also have something to do with the fact that it was my SECOND resistance session for today...Finished off on the rollers - how happy I am be able to use MY bike again (completely different to using a Recline Bike or Spin Bike or any other kind of bike a fitness facility might have - NOTHING comes close). Spun away at a reasonable pace, heated and dripping by the end...

    I'm not prepared to take any chances any more when it comes to supplements and unless there is a damn good reason for me to try anything new, I will be staying with and only using MY staples. As for the "knockoff", NOTHING is ever as good as the original, and just because it might have a similar ingredient list doesn't mean that the ingredients are in the same quantities or that it will have the same effect. Besides, I have a stash of Taraxatone (the same way I did with the original Assault), but thank you for the thought, David.

    Oh, I wasn't saying for now, I was saying for when there is no more Taraxtone which was always my go to diuretic. I just do not have the luxury of a having a stash. I HAD to find something else that works, and that knockoff just so happened to, for me anyway

    It's been a long time since I did a long ride like that, Chris - definitely not something you just go out and do, LOL. Plus, I have deliberately stayed AWAY from anything cycling related over the past few years, because I know the love-hate relationship I had with it, and it is in my past, where I would like to keep it [right now].

  20. Makes sense to me. I did have a freind who just went and did the MS 150, no training what so ever. Got on a cheap mountain bike and just rode. Surprisingly she finished the ride but she could barely walk for a week. Her legs, and lower back were just thrashed. Her sacrum was major bruised, just a bad decision all over. However she did it based on a dare/challenge that she couldn't do it and was strong minded like someone else I know on here. So giving up was not an option.

    If it was my cycling days I wouldn't think twice about doing something like that on a whim, but not now.

    For the complete Motivational, review The Journey of Life | Rosie's MuscleRevolution.


    TRAINING

    Session 1

    Run 3 miles

    Skip x 300 revolutions

    Full-Body (30 sec recovery between quadsets):
    QuadSet A -
    1. Neutral Grip Seated Row (each hand with individual handle) 3 x 15
    2. Side-to-side DB Push-Ups (feet on floor, hands on DB) 3 x 10
    3. Stiff-Legged DB Deadlifts (on bench, reaching down 3 inches with the DB) 3 x 10
    4. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet B -
    5. Rear Flyes 3 x 10
    6. Plate Hammer Raises 3 x 10
    7. Single-Arm DB Lateral Raises 3 x 10 per side
    8. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet C -
    9. DB Bicep Curls 3 x 21s
    10. DB Hammer Curls 3 x 10
    11. Alternate DB Hammer Bicep Curls 3 x 10 per side
    12. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions
    QuadSet D -
    13. Rope Crunches 3 x 15
    14. Reverse Curls (on bench) 3 x 10
    15. Pikes (on bench) 3 x 15
    16. Skip 3 x 100 revolutions

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Recline Bike 20 min @ 108-112 rpm

    Stretch 22 min

    More than a little shattered on waking this morning, but nothing my body has not been through before...7.2 pounds lost from yesterday first thing to this morning, making my run a little easier on my knees, albeit legs feeling dead and slow. It was ok, just a prelude to the weights...Then to the gym ready for a monster session. QuadSet A was good - few modifications to allow for the equipment and what was available, but fine. For the first set of QuadSet B, did Single-Arm DB Lateral Raises first (Rear Flye machine - yes, the only one I use - was occupied) - definition through anterior and lateral delts was good. Rear Flyes felt more than a bit weird because of the machine (different to what I am used to), but they were done. Skipping was a little slower, feeling myself tiring (no Assault pre-training today either). Pump strong and painful during QuadSet C - left wrist also aching on the second set, forcing a gritting of teeth to complete each exercise. Finished off with a killer QuadSet D - feeling abs burning today...Felt and looked half-past dead at the end of my weights, but sat myself down on the Recline Bike to "finish" off this training session. Not able to spin fast (definitely prefer my bike!), feeling it in my quads. Finding it difficult to breathe for a large part of it, ending in a dripping, gasping mess...

    Session 2

    Run 3 miles

    Did NOT feel like doing this at all - tempted to just sit on my rollers for 20 minutes, but running does better for me when it comes closer to times like this. But felt so exhausted wasn't even sure how much good it would be. Regardless, went out and did it anyway, in the dark, the way I like it, and was relieved when it was done.

  23. Nice on the 7 lb drop that must feel good to see on the scale. No wonder you felt worn out though you must have dropped a lot of water and depleted a bit.

    Well, it only puts me back to where I was before it, Chris - I still have ~7 more pounds to go (more water and bodyfat as well). Yep, lots of water (and food) weight, and hopefully some bodyfat (the most important part) in there - I'm still not close to being as lean as I want to be and it's a mad dash to hope my body will get there. I'm worn out from training and lack of Assault (definitely notice the difference NOT having it pre-training), and being so stressed (trying to calm this down for this week, but not been the most successful as yet). I'm not going to get any sleep tonight with everything I still have left to do, so I am praying like hell that I can bring my best package to each shoot!
