    Yes, so will I. Either way I am determined to finish this up and have a good time with it even with all the physical crap I seem to be going through.

  2. Day 20: Quads/Ham's/Calves - I'm really starting to hate this week.

    Notes:
    Another crappy day and another round of light weight. When this started off with a bang I was dead set on pushing it. This past week is really starting to wear on me. I don't like the summer flu, I don't like feeling old, I don't like having to second guess my summer goals. Hopefully something will turn around here soon and get me back into the right stage of mind as well as make my body feel good again.

    Thanks for the laugh Was. It just totally put me into another frame of mind.

    Got my Joint Fixx today, popped 2 this AM and hoping for some relief sometime next week.

    Trying to. Since I can't challege myself in the way of strength, I've decided to add 15 min more to my cardio. I am thankful that the Drive has helped me blast through something I hate.

  8. Thursday , June 28th - 343 lbs. (-3 lbs. Not bad for not wanting to and not being able to eat the way I want to.)

    Week 3 Reflection:

    Strength: Can’t say much. Took the week to go light due to aches and pains. Hoping to see some more gains here in the next week as I look to start pushing it again. As Wasme put it, I decided to take an unscheduled deload and will be trying to kill it again next week.

    Recovery: Since I went light this week, recovery has been really good when talking muscles. It’s too bad the joints won’t cooperate!

    Pump/Vascularity: Pumps continue to be really solid. Vascularity is still increasing.

    Mood/Aggression: Feeling laid back, even though I’ve felt like crap. Aggression is on the rise. My fuse has started to get a lot shorter.

    Energy/Focus: Once I get to the gym it’s on. Feeling crappy all day but once there is something else to focus on, it’s been very good. Don’t think I have actually bitched to myself in two weeks about doing cardio either, that is a huge plus! I’ve even added an additional 15 minutes of cardio and will continue with that for the remainder of this cycle.

    Noticeable Changes in Appearance: Vascularity has increased even more for shoulders and pecs. Calves are starting to look a little more chiseled for a fat guy. Traps have a 24 hour pump look to them. Feeling even harder/solid which I am starting to enjoy.

    Libido: Took a bit of a dive this week. Not sure if it’s the stack or if it’s the crap I’m dealing with.

    Odds ‘N’ Ends: Really disappointed this week since it’s been a huge downer in comparison to the first two weeks. Appetite has had its’ ass kicked by this crap I am fighting. Struggling to eat, though when I do, I start to feel much better. I wish that feeling of goodness would stick around. Started living on tums which seems to help a bit. The joints are still giving me a lot of pain. I am a very frustrated giant not being able to even work towards my goals that I started out with three weeks ago. As posted earlier, if things do not move in the right direction during this fourth week, I will be re-evaluating my goals for the remainder of this run. Next week’s sessions will be a bit modified due to the 4th of July being in the middle of the week.

    Notes:
    *Sorry for the very late update. The Secret World opened today and I needed a gaming fix.
    **Joints still hurt, kept things light again.
    ***Still feeling like crap. Appetite is nil.
    ****With the 4th of July upon us, W.O.'s this week will not be on my regular schedule. I am also going to decrease this week and try to hit just one body part each day in order to help the joints. S-chest, M-back/traps, T-Legs, W-off, Th-off, Friday-shoulders/traps,Sat-arms/calves. I hope this gives my aches and pains a little more rest time. Will be trying to move past the pain this week so I'm hoping to jump on the PR train again and get my progress back up to speed.

  16. Day 23: Rest and lots of yard work...

    Going to kick the Bulk up to 10 starting tomorrow 5 AM / 5 PM. Going to try and demolish myself again like I did the first two weeks.
    Feeling a bit better. Appetite is still nonexsistant which worries me. Joints still a bit creaky but not as bad.

    Hoping for good this week.

    90 lb x 10 reps

    80 lb x 10 reps

    Cycling (stationary):
    0:45:00 || 8.9 mi

    Notes:
    *Hammer Strength Day... I really hate people who circuit train. This is not Curves. And whoever came up with this **** needs to have his/her legs torn off and be beaten with them. Tying up the Smith machine for an hour while doing circuits is not making me happier with you.
    **Recovery between sets today was amazing. Not to mention being pissed by the description of the guy above, alpha mode here we come!
    *** Italics are PR's.
    **** The 405 for 0 on Inclines was a test to see if my PR (5) when using Ultradrol could be matched. That PR was set either week 3 or 4 last December and unfortunately I lost much of that strength afterwards. I figured if this stack gets me back to 405 and I can manage to keep most of my strength gains through PCT this time, I will be ecstatic.

    Sides: Appetite has yet to return but I am feeling better (knock on wood). Joints still ache but sleep has gotten much better the past couple of nights. Still not sure what to call this cycle - Bulk/Recomp/ or For the Hell of it. Either way, I'm still having fun.

  19. Thanks. For my own sanity, I need to get back into that groove ASAP that I was in 2 weeks ago!

  20. Morning Update:

    Best sleep this entire cycle last night!!! I hope it lasts.

    Feeling better today. Energy is good. Focus is awesome. Appetite is so-so.

    No DOMS either from yesterday. To quote Satan,"I'm lovin' it"!

    Joints are touch and go. One minute they hurt, the next they feel great.

    Anywho, hoping to hit back late tonight if our family obligations get taken care of before 8 pm.

    Good luck HTS. Not being able to get a good nights sleep or a good nap has got to be one of the worst things. But 3 weeks in and things are starting to settle down, I'm getting into a grove, and the Drive and I are starting to see eye to eye. Hopefully you'll be able to adjust faster than I with you trenavar cycle. I'm hoping that the additional good sleep will prove to be extra beneficial the next 4 weeks and provide some additional gains.

    Scary thought .... comical, but scary.

    Numbers back up I see! Nice job Colbi!

    I know you ordered some joint support, have you tried SuperCissus? I got some bulk from the planet - it is helping my knees/elbow.
