Any thoughts on the ability to make one go hypo- specifically when taking daily 3x a day?
Today is the 3rd time in two weeks I've experienced my hypo symptoms which r most notably difficulty completing a deep, fulfilling breath. Also general fatigue and mental fog..
Perhaps this goes along with your igf theory? Since you naturally release that when you enter 'starvation' mode, correct? In this case low blood sugar..

I've been taking in the monring fasted and not eating for ~6+ hours and had no problems.. but I've also consumed caffeine in that time period. I also take one pre-bed with no issues.
Also, for those interested in my journey, I'm doing a log of that and some other things /pimp

Either way, it went away during my workout, but definitely had more intense workouts.. Write up for today to come a little later on.

I was exhausted today but my numbers in the gym didn't take a hit, as I increased all my weight on every lift.
Last night my gf told me after I got out of the shower "your waist looks a lot smaller"- she has NEVER noted my waist in two and half years. Stomach/abs yes.. But actual waist, no. I told u all initially that most the leaning seemed to be takkn place around v cut/hips/obliques. This is now confirmed. Also felt like I was seeing nice leaning in my arms n forearms today.
Very strong appetite suppression today.. Almost too string and worried I may not have eaten enough.. Actually I'm sure I didn't and that's not good bc tomorrow is usually a lower cal day due to school and work schedule.. Fukk.

2 questions for y'all since theres a lot of smart guys in this thread-
1) can being on an AI too long cause dry, itchy skin? My Boy has been on different AIs since October n doesn't believe me about sides.. Smh
2) I am having a damn hard time getting my arms to grow.. Bi's more so than tri's.. Idk why!! I've been training for ten years and never had great arm growth.. Everything else I can grow almost at will.. Thoughts? I've tried everything from 3 days a week of direct arm work to 2, 1, none, etc.. High volume/low volume, high reps/low reps.. Feels like they just don't wanna grow!

For your arms, focus on contraction and recruitment. It'll make a world of difference. Each rep of each movement, focus on contracting and squeezing the target muscle. Feel your tris contract and bunch at the back of your arm during rope extensions, hold at peak contraction for a sec before lowering the stack. Keep your hands cocked back during curls and squeeze the **** out of the bar.
There are tricks are optimizations for just about every body part, it's just a matter of finding what techniques work.

That daunting feeling when you know you're forgetting something and then u realize it's your training journal =
Followed by realizing you have logged your past 6 workouts right here and don't need it to know what to do today =

REMEMBER- I am eating as tho I am on a bulk (high carb) and am on a lower rep/volume program than I am accustomed to. Also on creatine; I am not happy with my body / not beach ready by a long shot, but I am not unhappy with where I've come from, and the goal at the moment is not contest prep like PRETTY RICKY HWD!! lol all in all- NOT adding bf on a bulk and reducing bf in SOME spots for sure is a testament to the product thus far. If/when I can reduce my lower flop belly lol, I'll be happy- that won't happen on a mod or high carb diet for me tho.

Just had a sick back workout at school between classes in 45mins. Broke a solid sweat and am very hot so I'm walking around in a T in 30 degree CT weather fielding lots of FU glares!
Vascularity is wayyy up from even those pics I posted last night.... Top two abs, serratus , and lat lines really coming through... This stuff is also doing a number on chest fat.. I've always had man boob syndrom lol and it's alleviating the fat in that area.. All on a caloric surplus most days.
With a stim this stuff would be insane.
