    I am 20 years old 6'1" and 165 pounds as of this morning. I am consuming around 3000 calories (about a 500 calorie surplus)
    I do IF and train 16+ hours fasted. I have done this for about 2 years now, and love it. so BCAA are a must for me. I have never had SAA however so I am interested on the effect it will have on my endurance and DOMS. today was my first day taking this and let me say, the taste was DELICIOUS. it had a real strong flavor, unlike a lot of other products. I mixed it with 14oz water, drank about 10oz and refilled it back up to 14oz and the flavor was still so good and not watery. I am going to love sipping on.

    alright back from the gym.
    today I decided to do straight bar deadlifts. I have ALWAYS used a hex bar. I obviously had to drop the weight for this but did 255 6 times, didn't think that was to bad for being my first time. I would have been going for 275 5 times if I went with the hex bar. I did a dropset on leg press (huge quad pump). felt awesome. this stuff tastes so dang good, strong flavor, I can drink 3/4 of my shaker cup and fill it completely full again and it still doesn't taste watered down. we will see how the DOMS is tomorrow, usually its pretty bad in my hammies

    soo..fubar MD eh?
    is that like a doc then that only takes care of those really, grossly fukked up injuries?
    (like my emergency hemorrhoid surgery from couple weeks back?)

    and another random thought: how the hell do you decide you want to become a colon rectal surgeon anyway?



    let's discuss this over a nice tall glass of refreshing BCAA+SAA
    ready -- go!

    I got a new OHP PR! it was tough but I got it =)
    my shoulders are fried, I did 5x6 OHP followed by a triple dropset and 3 sets of lateral raises followed by a triple dropset of those too.
    my other lifts stayed pretty much the same though, but they usually go down after drill weekend. they didn't go down at all so im still pretty happy.
    the reason they go down is because I cant really track my macros very well since I eat at the defac and have to estimate, so I typically under eat.
    tomorrow im doing some cardio/abs and calves, interested to see if this helps with my cardio endurance.

    just did a little bit of cardio and calves today, I don't know if its just placebo but it seemed like I wasn't as tired after my cardio session. also DOMS has been less then usual I have noticed. so far I am loving this stuff

    I agree, I like DOMS but hate when it interferes with my workouts

    man my legs are jello right now lol
    I had squats today and I killed it, all my weights went up.
    I did squats, RDL, legpress, Leg extensions and leg curls. I either added weight or reps in every exercise.
    had pretty good energy in the gym. was a little bummed out cause my lifting buddy couldn't make it so I was all alone. I guess I didn't need him lol.
    my DOMS is reduced as far as I can tell. it is usually really bad after squats so we will see ho I feel the next couple days.
    I have bench tomorrow, surprisingly bench has been going up consistently. lets see if it continues.

    I had 5x5 bench/row today. my bench has been going up consistently but for some reason I stalled today. I was going for 175 5x6 today on bench.
    I got 6 on the first set but the other 4 sets I only got 5 reps.
    my bent over row went up though so im happy about that, and that has always been a tough lift for me to progress on.
    for some reason I just wasn't energized at all today. just didn't really wanna be there and wasn't feeling pumped up. I kind of just felt "out of it" my DOMS in my legs from leg day yesterday is not as bad as usual so im thinking BCAA+SAA is helping in that department, as I have always just used plain BCAA

    Don't sweat the bench brother. Could be a number of reasons. You'll get it next time!!
