    Ive had this also, but only if Im not using my blender bottle. Just squeeze the blender ball into the half gallon jug!! Lmao

    I give it a quick shake before every sip. It really isn't a bother.

    The only bad thing is if I put the scoops in, shake it up, set it down and say I go upstairs to change for the gym or have to do something before I leave, it'll be stuck to the bottom by the time I come back. It doesn't matter how much you shake at that point, it's not moving (and I'm not really keen on trying to take the lid off and shove a knife or something down in there to get it loose lol).

    Like I said, it's a very minor issue, but I wanted to mention it because I didn't know if in the future there was an ingredient that could be added at a low enough cost to justify it and possibly help in the dissolving/not clumping/settling.

    Would the temperature of the water affect the settling?

    I use a standard shaker and never really had a settling issue, although it seems like a few people have had this problem. Not quite sure what it could be :/

    Usually I'll add 2 scoops to a full shaker of water, shake it up for a minute or so right away, set it in the fridge, shake it when i leave for the gym, and it's usually all good.

    Just wanted to give a heads up that I've been dealing with some stomach stuff, this past week, so I haven't been into the gym since my last update. As long as everything cooperates, I'll be heading in for a chest session, this afternoon.

    Stomach bug? Is it coming up, or flowing down you need to be a little more descriptive bro!

    Actually, I just had some really bad knotting/cramping in my lower stomach (right at my waistline). I used to have that issue a lot when I was younger and it seems to have popped back up for a while. It's just hit and miss, but I can't seem to pinpoint any direct/specific cause.

    All right, so the other day I hit my HVT Chest session:



    Bench Press: 160x25 (x4)
    Incline Bench Press: 140x25 / 140x20+5 / 140x23+2 / 140x17+8
    Cable Fly Machine Decline Bench Press: 110x25 / 110x18+7 / 95x25 / 80x25
    Cable Fly (pushing forward): 95x25 (x4)


    Pre-workout: 2 scoops Hemavol, 200mg caffeine, 2g ALCAR, 1g Tyrosine, 1g Choline Citrate, 1 serving (new) Xtend
    Intra-workout: 2 scoops Compete


    Not great numbers, but made increases from my last HVT session on all but decline, so that's good. The bench numbers look very weak for my size, but it's a combination of getting that perfect form and banging out 100 reps, total, as well as my hip imbalance/left delt that seems to be rolled and can't create a stable base for any of my pressing movements (whether it's bench, incline, or even overhead).

    Today has been a very gloomy day and one that I would love to just spend in bed or in my recliner (where I currently am lol) watching movies/TV shows all day long. However, I did manage to hit church this morning, which was very necessary, as I've traveled the past 2 weekends and missed 2 weeks in a row. Church is a big part of my life and Sunday is my favorite day (for that reason as well as watching football all day long during those months, haha). It just gets me motivated and puts me into as good of a mood as I'm ever in (combine that with the gym and it's even better -- combine it on a day when I get to do church, gym AND football and you won't see me in a happier mood lol).

    Anyway, I got out for church, came home and ate, and then about an hour later fashioned my pre-workout choice for the day. With the rain, I wanted something special:

    2 scoops Hemavol + 2 scoops OG Pink Lemonade Focus-XT (and a serving of RecoverPro just before leaving/about 5 minutes after the pre)

    The 2 scoops of FXT provided me 400mg of caffeine and all the other things I normally take in bulk pre-workout, anyway. It was a pleasant taste combination. The lemon flavor was a bit more overpowering than I'd prefer, but it was a solid mix and provided an excellent workout.


    HVT Back:


    Solo Ring Lat Pulldowns (cable fly machine): 125x25 / 170x25 / 185x25 / 200x25 / 215x25 / 215x25 / 200x25 / 185x25 / 185x25 / 185x25
    Solo Ring Lat Pull-ins (cable fly machine): 155x25 / 170x25 / 185x25 / 200x25
    Solo Ring Seated Rows: 140x25 (x8)
    Swiss Ball Crunches: 8x15 (supersetted in between seated row sets)


    Added 2 extra sets to my normal 8 for the solo lat pulldowns, added 15 lbs to each of my lat pull-in sets, and added 10lbs to all 8 of my solo seated row sets. Whether I do ab work is just hit and miss, but I wanted something to do with my time between sets for the rows, so this was a good addition.

    Had a very solid Max-OT arm session, yesterday:


    Pre-workout: 2 scoops FXT + 2 scoops Hemavol

    Intra-workout: 2 scoops Compete



    *Tricep bar cable pushdowns (close grip): 160x6/160x6/160x6
    Low incline skull-crushers: 160x6/160x5/160x6
    Overhead solo DB tricep extension: 55x6/55x6/55x6

    Olympic bar curls: 150x6/150x6/150x6
    Nautilus hammer curl stack: 155x8/170x8/185x8
    DB hammer curls: 100'sx8/100'sx8



    I usually lead off with biceps, but decided to lead with triceps. Oddly enough, that didn't gain me much in the way of strength, so apparently my bi workouts never tire out the triceps or effect them (if they do, it's negligible). I made some slight increases to each tri set and then the surprise to me was that I made increases on my first 2 bicep workouts, too.

    DOMS are absolutely miserable, right now.

  13. How do you do your skull crushers? do you actually have someone to hand you the weights? Its usually a bitch to do when working solo

    I just grab the EZ bar at the shoulder-width grips and basically do a clean, then sit/lie down on the bench, press it up and then shift my hands inward to the closer grips. If I ever work with a spotter, I'll note it. I just don't count on anyone else and very rarely do I feel like I really need it. Would it benefit me on that lift, for example? Most likely. But unless I feel in danger, I just do it on my own (e.g. if I'm going for a PR on bench or something like that, I'll ask someone). Generally, people spotting can screw up a lift more than help it (in my experience).

    Thanks, guys.

    Hit a max-OT leg session, yesterday and was pretty pleased aside from not hitting squats (some guy was doing light front squats and I know who he is and he's the type of guy who is on a station for a long time). I didn't want to wait around to start, so I just did leg press. It wasn't until I was about half-way through that I remembered we now have a hack squat station, so then i was mad at myself I didn't do that instead lol. We just got it a few months ago and I've been at this gym for 3 years, so it just slipped my mind.

    I'll update the numbers later on here.

    I'm on the fence of whether I'm going to hit a max-OT delts/traps session tonight or push it til tomorrow. Might end up pushing it so the gf and I can hang out longer, this evening. Plus, that would give the DOMS in my arms (still there lol) another day to recover and also put me having Sunday off, which would mean not having to wake up for early service at church and just sleeping in, hitting the late service and coming straight home to watch football ALL. DAY. LONG. lol. I feel like that description makes it sound like my mind is already made up, but we'll see.

    lol

    I'd just liked that plan way too much and really want to push delts hard. So it's an off day and delts/traps will be smashed, tomorrow.
