    280 x4 whoops, racked and rested for 20 seconds + 280 x3 got angry and busted them out like I just started
    280 x4 failure on 5 had to rack it on the bottom notch

    lol what took ya!?

  15. took an off day, with how much my chest hurts now squats and lunges would have been like crucifying myself. yesterday it honestly hurt to breathe lol

    2 caps morning
    2 caps pre class
    2 caps just now

    Idk if this was due to me studying all morning and barely eating while I was out the door, but when I took my dose I felt a nice boost. Gave a good speech and didn't even need more notes to hit all the key points. I was in the zone.

    Not the warm feeling I get from other test boosters but I felt more energetic and confident than I should have, especially since I did the whole speech today. Procrastination Nation and I am the President

    Life's been crazy dood. Hardly getting a chance to get my hands on a computer these days. Only about 2-3 times a week, and a lot of business to take care of when that happens.



    I'm a little over a week into PR-XT myself. I'm running it with ECa and throwing in some NXT next week.

    I'm sure it's completely unrelated to the PX RT. more to do with me changing my sleep schedule, just sucks haha. I need to take my ambien sooner more often

  21. Idk why I found this so funny

    I would stay awake like 3 days at a time. Got out of hand, just gotta plan out how long I need to sleep

  24. 4 pills a little over an over before
    2 scoops Supp-D

    Smolov Day 3 + Pull Hypertrophy

    Did 6 sets 300 x4
    2 short of target
    My wrists were wobbling and it just wasn't comfortable, I'm all for training past pain but an exercise shouldn't cause you to put your safety at risk.

    Anyway, I wasn't mad at myself this time. I should have taken 2 days break. Live and learn!

    Low cable row
    100 x12
    120 x10
    140 x8
    Edit
    Switch to 1 hand
    40 x16
    40 x14

    Hammerstrength row
    1 pps x16
    2 pps x12
    2 + 1/4 x10
    ^ ""

    Smith Shrugs while standing on 2 plates
    (135 x16) x4

    Straight bb curls
    70 x10
    70 x10
    70 x10
    Lit
    70 x10

    Incline Db curls
    35's x10
    35's x10
    35's x8 + 2 standing
    35'a x6 + 4 standing

    Rope face pulls
    4 sets 100 x12

    Felt full, only ate a bunch of snacks today honestly. So that was unexpected. Still at 197 lol but my abs are peaking out. I love training fasted lol

  25. rest day

    took 3 caps

    saving last 3 for around dinner

    DOMS is kicking in like a mofo, other than that I still feel full. Arms and chest feel as if I just put down the weights like an hour ago

  26. sounds like it is kicking in fast for you!!!

    I dont know what to expect honestly lol, Is fullness supposed to be an effect? I figured I'd have hunger increase but as of now it's honestly the complete opposite.

    fullness is something i have been experiencing, but it took me longer to get it....so far i haven't felt an increase in hunger either, but i was kinda expecting too.


    what day you on?

    5 man, but ya I wanted to go in not expecting anything so I could be an unbiased as possible

    well, be happy with the fullness on day 5...i think it was around 9-10 before i really saw that!!!

  31. after a bunch of thinking and comparing my progress in weights and mass I decided to discontinue Smolov.

    Simply because Smolov is supposed to be used as a plateau breaker, seeing how I havent hit a plateau and *knock on wood* dont intend to for a while I am simply putting more strain on my elbows and wrists that I want to. I'm more than confident in my ability to reach 405 with a typical split so in the end it just wasnt worth the benefit to hazard ratio.

    going back to
    Push Pull Leg

    or what I normally do
    chest back leg push pull

    I get great progress with either or it just depends on how my schedule looks for that specific week

    Really windy here in Tx, blackouts everywhere so I did more than I normally do just because I didn't wanna be at home in the dark lol

  40. Side note I always warm up with a hoodie on when it's cold as tits outside, after the first exercise I'm usually good. So when I took off my hoodie I feel like I filled my XL shirt quite well, arm sleeves were at mid bicep instead of down past my tricep and it actually looked like I had a chest. Pretty happy, I wish what I looked like pumped after chest day was how I looked everyday waking up. Been a constant thought in the back of my mind and to actually see some progression to that goal really made my day.
