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

  4. 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

    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

  5. 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

  6. 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?

  11. 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

  12. Push

    went to a new gym, this Golds is 24/7 and just like 10 minutes away so I decided to check it out.

    Incline DB's
    90 x12
    105 x8 the grip was obnoxiously wide, idk why but it hurt my reps
    120 x6 same thing, felt like I had one of those fat gripz on each db

    said screw this, switched it to hypertrophy. went back to elbows out instead of pointed in and really focused on stretch and contraction
    65 x16
    65 x16
    80 x14

    This gym had the best chest press variation out there, it felt so nice that from now on every push or chest day I am going there.

    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

  20. 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.

  21. Nice addendum there dude; progress & motivation >>>

    Indeed.

    Had a talk with my best friend about the most effective method to keep kids off drugs, and we came to the conclusion that its having goals and seeing them come to fruition. All spiked from Home Depot having little seminars where they teach kids how to build bird houses and such. And the feeling of gratification is one of the best out there. It's an almost silly feeling that you can share but never explain.

    Lol sorry, I've been in a deep thinking mood today haha :P

  23. I wear XLs as well.

    Although, I prefer my shirts to be on the bigger side. If my XLs fit on me the way yours fit on you I would probably buy 2XLs.

    Is that strange?

    Nope not at all, I was thinking about moving up but then I realized I'm going to be cutting soon. Bodybuilding is a constant struggle of finding proper clothing lmao. But for most part XL's are roomy and comfortable...until I'm pumped so I can manage

  25. Off day, my whole day went to ****. I started off with a good deed and everything spiraled down hill. When I had to confront someone at the grocery store for being completely rude I decided gym wasn't the place to be. Whenever I'm mad I always do worse and then get mad at myself. I wanted to end the day well. That and my friends leg day is tomorrow so we finally realigned our push pull leg. Whoop

    3 caps in the morning

    3 caps around 3

    Chest is feeling full still, I love this feeling. I know I probably haven't built any muscle, but seeing what I will have shortly is a great feeling. Arms are engorged like full extended or brought in to scratch my nose I feel that familiar tightness.

    Nutrition was as such

    1 12 ounce redbull
    1 banana nut muffin

    2 servings Brazil nuts

    4 burger parties
    2 slices pepperjack
    4 slices bread

    5 eggs
    1 slice pepperjack
    2 slices bread
    2 servings cream of wheat
    A **** ton of light corn syrup
    Some walden chocolate

    Hot sauce on basically everything

    I was picking up cream of wheat and bread MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS and these people tried getting in front of me at the self checkout lane.

    I look at them (ghetto son and mom)
    "Are you being serious..?"
    "Oh I'm sorry I didn't see you there." *snickers*
    "You're either blind or stupid which is it?"
    "...Go ahead I apologize"
