    One more bit of info. I'm fighting February 9th, originally I was going to fight at 170 but since I'm hovering around that now my promoter found me one at 165. Start hardcore training on Jan 3rd.

    Had a great workout tonight. Tried a couple of new things.

    Face pulls 70x8x10
    Rows 160x10x3
    Lat pull downs 130x10x3

    Wide grip guillotine curls 80x10x3
    Wide grip preacher curls with ez curl bar 45 per side 3x8
    Hammer curls 45x10x3

    Surprisingly the ez curl bar didn't bother my wrists tonight. Probably because I've taken a break from using it for awhile. Started the guillotine curls a couple of weeks ago. I love the pump I get from doing them. Tomorrow is chest/triceps (if there is a tomorrow) looking forward to expanding my tricep routine. Gonna bump my bench up a notch also.

    Right on man! I'm going to work on a new routine during pct and I'm going to switch up some exercises and go for reverse pyramids on main lifts I think. I'm down for any suggestions for substitutions for my auxiliary lifts!

    Just started reverse pyramids myself. Have you tried guillotine curls or flat bench db curls? Heres a link to a killer forearm workout http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bAyDD3B_Cgc
    For chest I like doing cable crossovers starting at shoulder height for a set then raising one click, another set, up another click. Then do that in reverse. Those have all really worked well for me. I'm old school so don't really know a whole lot of new things. So if anyone has suggestions this old dog can learn new tricks!!

    Flat bench curls sound like a nice option. I have to stick with all free weight exercises, I have a home gym. No cable crossover machine....... yet

    Its been a while since I bought something new so maybe my wife won't complain lol. But I was thinking a roman chair and selectorized hack squat were going to be my next investments. Not 100% sure though.

    I love the cable cross overs, changing height. I start with it high, where I am pushing down working the bottom sid of my chest and keep to odd number on the machine moving up to incline (pushing to face level. Kinda hard to explain sorry.

    I know exactly what you are talking about my man. Great workout. Although if I go to high it really seems to hurt my shoulders (improper form?"

    A buddy cut me a killer deal on whey protein so I stocked up and got my protein intake up to 320g that seemed to keep me full and I was able to cut carbs to 85g. Had decent energy but started getting a pretty bad headache, not sure if that is a side from cutting carbs? Weight is 173.6

    On a side note the football game tonight Sucked!! Good thing the Lean EFX is helping with the mood aspect haha.

    Don't worry, you at least have a damn good team. I am a Dallas fan and we are playing like 13 year old girls. What do you think about the quarteback situation? I thought Alex Smith was doing good? Although, Kaepernick (sp) is going to be a damn good QB.

    I'm pumped about the QB situation. I think Kapernick is a frickin beast!! My wife's a Cowboys fan. I think they are going to make the playoffs.

    Yeah spiller has done well. Almost thought he was going to be out for a bit there but he seems to be a quick healer too. Probably the adamantium skeleton.

    They wanted to admit her but said it was up to us. So she is here resting. Seems to be better. Just needs to flush the ketones out of her system.
