    I'd much rather be at a low bf% lol, believe me. But, on the bright side, while I'm this big, it's nice to at least be able to move some heavy weight.

    Well, I was measured at 30% bf, last month, so I have a feeling your "bulky look" wouldn't be near that size. I'd worked ridiculously hard to get my abs, so this whole ordeal has been very taxing.




    Off day, today. Need to update my leg workout and yesterday's delts/traps workout in a bit (just need to go grab my notebook). Did hit a PR on overhead presses, yesterday, so that's good.

    355x6 on overhead press was a PR for me, so getting it twice was pretty unexpected for me.

    Improvements on pretty much all other lifts in some aspect.

    Very happy with yesterday's chest session, as my numbers jumped back to around what they were 2 weeks ago (unlike last week's plummet).

    Max-OT back session on tap for tonight.

    Good to hear, you think you can squeeze out another PR?

    On back night? I doubt it.

    I've got a hip imbalance (can't remember if I mentioned it or not), but it's led to my legs feeling just slightly uneven, which is miserable for squats and even deads to a lesser extent. But because of that, I've stopped doing BB rows until it's fixed, because I end up pulling more to one side and building up one side of my back more than the other. So, aside from deads, all of my back movements are either seated or on a bench (like DB rows). It sucks.

    But because of all of that, my numbers aren't nearly as good as they once were on back lifts.

    I'll write down the specific numbers when I have my notebook in front of me, but 2 nights ago I hit my max-OT back night and climbed up on deads a bit, so that was good.

    I ended up with 500x5/500x4/500x4 (I think; the 2nd might have been 5 reps, too).

    Last time I was only at 490 and each time, it's my grip that gives out on me. I'll be picking up some straps in the near future, so hopefully I'll see a nice increase on my deadlifts. I really do need to start focusing on grip strength, again, though, because I hate the idea of letting it lag behind too much.

    Led off the back session with seated rows (something like 260x10/270x10/280x10 - which was a pain, because the stack only goes to 250, so I was stacking a 10, then 2 10's, then a 25 and a 5 onto the stack and it gets a little nerve-racking when they get too far out) and then went ahead and did overhand lat pulldowns and worked my way down the stack and did 200x6/210x6/220x6/230x6/240x6/250x6.

    DOMS are ridiculous from the deads, so I'll likely take today off and push the workout til tomorrow for arms, but we'll see. I'm headed out of town for work, but maybe I'll feel like doing it when I get home.

    Headed up to Louisville and lifted with wsaucer from the forums. Got myself a killer arm day in. I'll put up numbers later, but I ended up doing HVT instead of HIT and I was really pleased with that. Made increases from the last HVT day and also had a ridiculous pump; just unreal.

    Well, for pre-workout, now, I'll likely just use bulk cit-mal (~7g) and a scoop or two of FXT. Compete will still be at 2 scoops intra-workout (I really enjoy that dose a lot). I really like this product and love taking it intra-workout instead of just BCAAs. The only thing I'll say is that DOMS tend to be worse, now. So perhaps I just need to slam more BCAAs immediately post-workout, too (since I now take them pre-workout instead of intra). I didn't want to do this/see a need because I take my shake almost immediately after working out, but I'll toy around with this and see if it makes a difference.

    Didn't hit the gym, last night, so I'll be hitting it, tonight. Still up in the air on whether I'll go HIT (back on schedule) or just do HVT for the entire week. I'll see how I feel.

    Had zero motivation at all, but went in for a HVT delts session on Tuesday. Was going to hit traps, too, but felt really sick and barely got through the delts session. Traps will get hit with legs, tonight.

    Had to take yesterday off because I went down to Vandy for my doc appt.

    ^^^ LOL. Yeah, I hear ya, man.

    The biggest downside is not getting the aesthetic changes despite doing the lifting. Oh, well. Hopefully it'll be resolved soon.

    Hit a HVT leg day and ended up with 900 total reps. About 7 sets in, I felt really sick (empty feeling in my lower chest/top of my stomach). Not sure if it's just because I hadn't eaten enough or what. Luckily, I was able to power through it (was really close to leaving because I thought I was going to puke), and got a solid workout in. Didn't hit traps because of that (and I was there for about 2 hours), so they'll just get tacked onto back day (after chest) or just skipped for the week, since they'll be coming up relatively soon on Max-OT delts/traps day and I want them full form.

    2 scoops FXT + 7g Cit Mal for my pre-workout mix and then right before leaving, downed 4 scoops (2 servings) of OG Xtend. 2 scoops Compete intra.

    All right, hadn't lifted since the 21st and hit my HVT back session, tonight.

    It went very well and I had a great pump and a lot of increases across the board.

    No more Hemavol, so I went with 1 scoop of FXT + 3.6g citrulline malate + 2 scoops of Cellucor's new BCAA product (great profile on that thing -- 2 scoops gave me 10g BCAA/3.2g BA/4g CM).

    As always, 2 scoops Compete intra-workout.

    Made big increases on my solo cable fly station lat pulldowns and some pretty big increases on my solo ring seated rows (140x25 for 8 sets to 150x25 for the first 4 sets and 140 for the last 4).

    Feeling great. Tomorrow is an off day and Thursday I'll hit max-OT arms.

    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.

    I feel like my gains keep coming from switching up the workouts as often as I do (HVT 1 week, Max-OT next week, HIT next week, Max-OT next, repeat).

    I feel like the strength comes from the Max-OT and the volume really focuses on endurance and gets amazing blood flow, and then the HIT works on endurance, too (and for a normal individual, hits max lipolysis). I've just made consistent gains in weight on the bar without anything more than staple supplementation, so I've been very happy with this program.

    They usually say, when i switch things up.. you have continued success. IMO that goes with dieting, training, cardio, supplements, etc.

    Props to you on your success bro.

    might have to consider changing up my training a bit more frequently. i usually keep the same type of style and split for about 4 weeks, but now might have to cut that down. pretty cool stuff dude
