    X's 2. Great logic!

    I use similar logic when going to the bar. My friends ask if I wanna go and sometimes I think, hmmm $50 on beer or but 5lbs of whey & ALCAR?

    Idk why I didn't use yours before, genius!!!!!!

    I do the same thing.. like yesterday I wasn't drinking for St Patricks day at all and I saw the new Mass FX black sale reactivated. 25 bucks for 2 bottles.. for something I'd definitely think would be good. That's a few beers, I think yes! And I woke up feeling great because I was sober.

    Thanks... I'm a finance guy at heart. It's easy to find money in the budget. I have a terrible habit of drinking energy drinks. I bought a bunch of Alphamine to have in the morning b/c it'd be cheaper and do my body better lol.

    On a side note, the Defranco pull aparts I did were awesome. My shoulder's feel great today. If I can keep my shoulders feeling healthy, which has been a problem in the past, and continue to regularly bench and overhead press, I foresee scary bench increases. Here we come 405. Here's a video of the 3D Pull Aparts which will become a weekly staple along w/ the Diesel Crew 3 minute shoulder warmup.

  6. I'm a finance guy as well...not a big fan of it though.

    I'll have to try those 3D pull aparts soon. They look great.

  7. Big fan of the fat gripz. I think they are the kind of thing any meat head should have. I put them on pretty much all the DB pressing exercises I do and keep them in constant rotation on other things.

    Also like the band pull aparts by Smitty and DeFranco. Something I use a TON and has really helped my shoulders (and those I work with) from pain in the past.

    Welcome to the log bro! Anything else you recommend for shoulder health? If I can keep ohp and benching a couple times a week with the 3d pull aparts and smittys warmup I think I can finally be a beast presser over time!

  9. Just stay diligent with the work even when things get better. I know that whenever things get better and I stop doing what helped problems creep back up...

    Also look into some articles by Cressey on Shoulder issues. Solid stuff.

    Nice log so far by the way.

  10. Great log bud, I'm going to look into that shoulder warmup in a bit. I just started going to an ART doc. Making a big difference to get rid of scar tissue, stretch my muscles etc. a lot of my shoulder issues are from my posture actually which we are fixing ! Good luck bro keep it up.

    Lol I do the same thing with my shoulders. Ill have to stay preventative and ahead of the game even when they feel good. I suspect my issues are because I have uneven rotator cuff strength from when I pitched. My throwing shoulder always feels good and the other I suspect is just weaker in the rotator.Thank for the log compliment too! Im a big PES fan and just ordered some Alphamine for the first time. Hopefully it brings out the final ab details for the summer!

  12. I'm the same way with my knee.

    I should foam roll more often but unless it aches I neglect it. (Which makes it ache, especially after long runs or jumps)

  13. Not sure where the effect is coming from if it is all in my head, a result of training changes, the supplements, or both... but I feel very alpha the last couple days. Just ready to go in and crush my workouts, feeling that I'm going to dominate the weights. Even if it's just a speed or rep day, and I'm not going super heavy, I have some extreme focus and drive.

    Sounds like Versa-1 to me. My focus, confidence, and drive noticeably improve, and all I want to do is lift. It's a great feeling.

    My symptoms exactly and I'm typically rather driven / motivated

  16. Woke up looking pretty lean.. I had a HUGE St. Patricks Day meal (my treat instead of heavy drinking) that included a boatload of Italian Food. Yesterday was my companies monthly pizza lunch and I also ate like a ravenous beast. But guess what, I woke up the leanest I have been in a week or two this morning. I think I restarted my metabolism so to speak and couldn't be happier. I just have this feeling that I'm going to crush weight's tonight on my explosive deadlift day.

    Also, for all you following, if you want to see another great log, check out the one marcusz16 just wrapped up. He absolutely killed it and made some incredible progress! My second bottle of Versa-1, Alphamine, and Bulk Modern Bcaa should be here tomorrow

  17. I'd been stalking his log but hadn't seen his final pics. Wow he did put in work!

    What flavors did you grab for the Alpha and mBCAA?

    Raspberry Lemonade Alphamine.. STOKED! Grapple Bulk Modern.

    Bolt/Breezy/Anyone Else, do any of you have experience megadosing BCAA's? I eat intermittent fasting style and was thinking about doing this. I know everyone's feelings on it are mixed and I could be throwing money away, but bulk modern is affordable and I thought about having 2 servings a day (20 g's bcaas) to see how it impact recovery and body comp.

  20. Not really a big fan of "mega" dosing but I don't know if I'd consider 20g a mega-dose. I use 5g Leucine pre and post so if that was a BCAA product that'd be near 20g.

    Fair enough and good point! How have you found that has impacted you?

  22. I have been doing that for pretty much forever so I'd have to drop it to see any real changes. I feel it helps my recovery though.

  23. I wouldn't consider 20g "mega" dosing either. I've been training fasted with MBCAA+ both pre and post (usually 2 scoops pre/1scoop post). My first meal is usually within 1.5 hours after my workout. I may experiment with different dosing, but it's been going well with my current approach.

  24. Thanks for the input guys. I'm current training Wednesdays and Fridays around 6 with one meal in my system and Fasted on Saturday's and Sunday's. I can budget for 20 g's a day both on workout and non workout days. I typically break my "fast" between 12 and 2. Thoughts on how to experiment?

    I'm trying to get away from diet soda during the work day and thats why I bought bcaas lol.. they are cheaper and healthier. I was thinking of sipping 10-20 g's before my fast or throughout the day on non workout days in place of soda cravings.

  25. Deadlift explosive

    deadlift from 1 inch deficit-
    295 x 8 sets x 3 reps 30 seconds between each set

    snatch grip 4 inch block pulls-
    250 x 3 sets x 12 reps

    olympic pause squats-
    185 x 3 sets x 8 reps

    band pulldowns
    4 sets x 15 reps

    hyperextensions
    2 sets x 25 reps

    shrugs-
    275 x 3 sets x 12 reps

    this workout may look easy on paper but man it was tough. Rather quick pace and no belt for any of the work

    I'd recommend using them around your workouts when training fasted. You could "experiment" with exactly how you want to go about it; pre, pre/post, intra, etc. However, I personally wouldn't use them post-workout alone if fasted. You could use them around your workouts on all training days as well.

    There's nothing wrong with using them as a diet soda replacement before your fast, but I'd rather use them when fasting. I used to drink a ton of diet soda at work as well. I think I was just craving the caffeine more than the soda itself. Thankfully, I grew out of that phase and haven't had any in a couple years.
