    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Wow that's insane, how do you like the 5aohp i have heard a lot about it. Does it live up to the hype gains wise? I'm thinking of trying to log a PH this winter from a company like Iron-Mag Labs or anybody who makes something good for mass. What's your goal weight right now? Your stats say 6' 2" 254 that's pretty huge!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    In college I was in the 240 range. Goal weight is around 220 - 215 then bulk a bit more. I let myself really go and August first of last year I was 382 pounds.

    If we let ourselves go it would be easy to be hit 300's no doubt. I love that every human being has the willpower to stear their mind to where they want to go!

    mental discipline is an effect bodybuilding causes.

    Keep up the good work Nick-you are very strong.

    Thanks John, Tried deads today with barbell and my strength has gone down on them. Not really worried about it right now but i'm just going to perfect my form so when September comes, i will be ready to get super strong on them! My off-season strategy will be to eat 3,500 calories at first and see if i gain at all, then just adjust in 500 increments until i gain at a steady rate. I will throw in cardio here and there just like 10 minutes post workout. Believe it or not i'm eating right around 2k calories right now and i'm leaning up pretty quickly. This will be my last month of hard dieting starting now, then after i will go up to 2,500 and slowly cut cardio for 4 weeks. Then after that 3,500 with little cardio, my goal will be to gain a good 20Lbs or so but keep my bodyfat in a good range. I might even bulk for longer depending on where i'm at, as long as i'm not too fat i'll be happy haha.

    New Pic around 225Lbs! Vacuum is looking better and taper is looking good...

    Still got a decent around my lower waist to lose too!

    Hey guys today i trained chest and i went the heaviest i've gone on decline db press. I went up to 90's for the first time, the set before i did the 80's for a solid set of 5 which i also had never used, Didn't go to failure on that set as well. I was a little shaky with the 80's but figured i could probably get the 90's for a good set of possible 5. Anyways i got the first rep: perfect chest contracted super hard, lowered super slow and fired up the 2nd one..WHAM another perfect rep super controlled. At this point i definitely was thinking 5 reps, went to hit the 3rd rep and got about to ******* and left arm just "stopped contracting" no tear symptoms or anything it just like i said stopped. I have had this happen with overhead press trying a new weight as well. Does this sound like a nervous system adaptation to you guys? I figured it makes the most logical sense because it's A: A new weight and B: The weight was heavy but my chest contractions were super intense.

    Reps were done with 3-4 second negatives too but i still felt really strong and in control, just kind of a goofy situation! I'm just happy no tear, i think i'd attribute that to how slow i was doing the reps WHEW

    good thing you were controlling the weight! Not sure if it is a nervous system adaptation.... I have the same thing happen on certain body parts / lifts... I'll be going strong, then out of nowhere, BAM the fatigue hits fast and hard and feels like the muscle is not working haha

    I know right?! Yeah i wonder if there's a study or explanation on it?? It's really weird, at least i'm not the only one experiencing it. I'll just have to keep my form really controlling so i never have to worry about my face being wiped out LOL

    Have another video of me training lats today with 1 arm db rows, the way i do them is a little different i focus on my scapula being pulled and my lat contracted other than just pulling my arm up.

    Thanks yeah i love it, sometimes it can get annoying since i work there and i have to do stuff which deters me away from my focus. Did Hamstrings/Delts today and got up to a PR of 365 x 5 SLDL @ 220Lbs which is my best yet!! Got a video with me doing 315 x 5, didn't want the extra pressure/anxiety for the 365 so i'll wait to get it on camera. Lower back needs to be strengthened so i'm starting rack pulls for back thickness day, i killed hams today! Up to 6 Glute Ham Raises with my bodyweight as well for 3 sets. Everything is coming along great did 30 minutes of steady state cardio after as well.

    I'm looking into a local powerhouse that has a lot of national level bodybuilders as well as strongmen and powerlifters. Think it'll be my only option out of my current place! Seeing clients all day would get annoying while training since there would be a lot of questions and such. Where do you pt at?

    Did quads/delts/calves today and tried out 10x10 on delts. I really REALLY stepped up the intensity on todays sessions. I'm gonna feel like **** tomorrow that's for sure.

    Started with Leg extension 25-30 reps followed by partials halfway up, did 6-7 working sets.
    Moved to Leg press with outward intention force and pushing off toes for max quad recruitment, 4 working sets 10-20 reps plus partials at end.
    Hack squat machine feet close together only with 1 place super slow reps 4 sets of 8 reps
    I put some tears into this mini quad destruction session, was making all kinds of noises but i wanted to take it up a notch like a shock workout.

    Moved onto delts side raises 20lbs x 10 reps x 10 sets 30 seconds rest between sets, not letting the dumbbells go under my shoulders constant tension. HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE PUMP
    Rear delt rows 100lbs x 10 x 10 same rest as above, EVEN MORE OF A SICK PUMP.
    Thumbs up db laterals 15 x 10 x 3 sets was FRIIIEDDD.

    I am going to train small body parts with this method it is brutal as hell and gonna be epic for slow twitch muscle growth.

    Calves i went heavy and did seated raises supersetted with donkey raises.

    I'll also say that for me to get to the intensity i want, i need to go kind of to a place in my mind and just try to embrace the good pain from training. It's an angry place but sometimes it's necessary to get you through those super important reps. I try to embellish the fact that the pain will be temporary and the results will last forever.

    Me too, i'm a taller guy too so i stick out like a sore thumb but i'm just gonna take it as a compliment and focus on my session.

    Here's what i have planned: Lat's and Bi's

    Lats ( this might change based on what machines they have, gonna try some new stuff )
    Pull-Over Nautilus Machine Pre-Exhaust Lats 3 sets 20 reps
    Wide Grip pull-ups 3 sets of 5-10 reps + x reps at end of set
    Row machine 3 sets 10-12 reps + x reps
    Neutral Grip Pull down 3 sets 10-12 + x reps
    1 arm DB rows 3 sets 12-20 + x reps

    Bi's

    Chins Bicep Emphasis 3 sets + x reps
    Barbell Curls 3 sets of 5-8 + x reps
    Reverse Grip Cable Curls 3 sets of 12-20 + x reps

    I should be fried after this
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Yeah buddy, good thing i'll be bringing headphones to be in the zone. I've had a chance to scope out the place so good advantage for me.

    I love trying out new gyms. Of course, it takes learning the diffferent equipment. I recently joined a old new gym, where I started. ive been to five gyms around here and switch every so often just because of the machinery or one place has heavier dumbbells, one place I have a dedicated training partner, etc and to change things up

    Ahahaah do it and get a video!

    Took some pic's today and my back looks WAY better now, cuts are coming in and a ton more separation. I'll upload them later after i train but it's only been about 18 days between them. HIT training sucks sometimes because of how painful it is but it works really really well, i'm doing a 3D Position of Flexion + X-Reps set-up and LOVE IT.

    I see fat has melted off nicely. Nicework

    its a hard battle getting lean and maintaining, once you get it though you can up slowly calories and maintain leanness.

    Thanks, i would say it's more of a time consuming process. My flaw is i don't fluctuate my calories when dieting which is what works the best so far. High calorie day followed by a lower one and consistently changing my intake without a 500-800 calorie range. I notice fat comes off faster with it, I've got frank zane's book and i've been applying some of his principles since he came in shredded!

    I like both approaches but i wouldn't let it get out of hand like i did the first time, the strength gains are crazy so i would say it has it's merit but the sacrifice is time for cutting. I'm going to add slowly this winter and see how it goes, all while making consistent progress weight/reps wise, pretty much spent the entire summer re learning all my form and now it's dialed in. Now comes the weight!
