    I'll likely do something similar this PM as well.

    Peak Beta+ is still (and will stay) on my list of supplements that will be in my regular protocol for the foreseeable future. I definitely love it!
    That is great to hear! With both Accelerant and Peak Beta+ (both of the supps we released last year) we aimed at making premium quality formulas that would still be very affordable. So far so good, a ton of great feedback on both and I'm very glad to hear youve been loving it!

    Cube W4D3 H Skwaaaatz.

    The usual stiff old man warm up.

    135x10, 225x8, 315x6, 365x4, 405x2

    445x2x3

    Few notes; tried these with my heels on a 5# plate, unreal world of difference in leg drive, ability to SIT BACK, and overall comfort through the movement. Yo quiero squat shoes.

    Then the usual-snatch grip deads, lunges, etc.

    Bunch I planks n stuff too. I felt pretty good, but after the ME lift my mind was simply just wandering.

    Anybody have ideas on non or low-stim supps to help with focus? I find my mind wandering after about 30-35'.

    Vid in production, pre-refeed weight at 285.

    Caffeine level: adderall.

    Honestly, I'd say in the 200mg range. I drink a big ol sugar free red bull pre, but for some reason my focus drops off. I still have loads of energy & enthusiasm, but damn near anything side tracks me after about 35 minutes.

    FocusXT is 200mg per scoop, Enhanced is like 125mg per scoop but has other amenities involved Lol, Condense has 200mg per scoop, just to name a few.

    Yea 200mg seems to be the standard dose in most pre's.

    Add 200mg caffeine and 5g creatine mono to Peak Beta+ for a cheap upgrade to a potent preWO stack.

    A lot of people also use Accelerant and Peak Beta+ together pre workout, Accelerant has 200mg caffeine/serving.

    Am I EVER going to DL right? This week, we laugh @ Swanson's attempts at deadlifting!

    DL REPS
    135, 185, 225, 275, 315

    335x6x1. Not sure why I thought 6 was the number, should've been 8. Duh.

    4" BLOCK PULLS
    355x2x3
    Blocks are nice, I like block pulls.

    Olympic Stance Box Squat 8x3
    Back Raises 15x2, 10x2
    Box Jumps 3x8
    Core stuff.

    Nothing about today felt "right", except block pulls I suppose. Weird.

    I ended up ordering enhanced & uncut.

    I'm not doing the PeakBeta+ any justice right now! I never get "tired" or worn out...I GET BORED. WTF?

    Seriously, if I can coupe laser focus with the PeakBeta+, I'll wreck the gym. Still using & loving it. I just take for granted that I have the gas to roll through any workout.

    I hear you, Im the same way there are a lot of products that I dont get the most out of unless I am well stimmed for my workouts. We made Peak Beta+ so it would be easily stackable with the users stimulant product of choice.

    I havent used Enhanced yet, but was very pleased with Uncut.

    Bench heavy.

    Today was...interesting. I had to enlist the help of the wife, we had a few cluster fawk moments, but it went well.

    FLOOR PRESS
    As I posted-the bar hits my chest before elbows touch.

    Bar, 135, 185, 225, 275

    310x2x5

    BENCH
    255x10x2. Failure at lockout on #10, 2nd set.

    Dips, DB shrugs, BW pull ups finished it off. I'm smoked, really hammered it today. Vid coming.

    PeakBeta+ FTW. Lots of work today.

    SQUAT
    Bar, 95, 135, 185, 225

    Leg press, 2 sets walking DB lunge.

    Not much, but I got my main set done, fasted nonetheless.

    Loading the Uhaul as in as awesome metaphor for going heavy? Or did you actually have to move and hit legs in the same day?!

    Legs first, loading the Uhaul the rest of the day.

    Brutal.

    Edit; took my PeakBeta+ prior to loading. It's versatile!!

    Crazy, insanely sore today. I'm freakin worn out, so as far as diet restriction today...there will be none. I typically limit my refeeds to a time frame, but today will be an all day affair.

    BODY DAY
    I trained at a tiny little gym where my sister in law lives, so there isn't much equipment. Basically just went in to get moving.

    OHP
    135, 155, 185, 205
    225x8
    That's probably my best set of 225 ever. I've done 5-6, but 8 may be a new PR.

    Then I just did some mega-sets of flat DB bench, DB rows, side laterals and DB curls.

    35' LISS

    Followed by 10 egg whites, 4 eggs, 6 pancakes, 4 kolaches, and a big glass of fat free choc milk.

    It's on, Skipload FTW.

    I was awfully optimistic about ME deads after moving for the last few days. I'm gassed after finishing up today.

    So, in lieu of DL, I did some light outdoor jog/walk cardio. There's a path by our house that's marked in 1/4mi increments, so I'd jog a quarter, walk a quarter. Did that for about 45 min...I know it seems like nothing, but it's 85 and I'm not acclimated to the altitude so I was sucking wind pretty hardcore.

    I'm going to lie around and destroy my meals at 100% today so I'm ready to roll tomorrow. I'll hit a couple more mobility sessions as well.

    God moving just plain sucks. Next time, I'm hiring people.

    Alright, session in and it felt f'ng GREAT. I wasnt tired, I am finally acclimating to altitude (my "altitude cold" went away), and I rolled in fired up.

    Warm up stuff.

    FLOOR PRESS ME
    Bar, bar, 135, 185, 225, 275
    275+20# chain x3
    275+40# chain x2
    275+80# chain x2
    315x2x2
    Add slingshot
    365x2
    I know the chain total isn't exactly accurate because some gets left on the floor, but I just put the total chain poundage.

    http://youtu.be/zeafUaqRiTY

    FLAT BB COMP BENCH
    225x20
    225x15x2

    SUPERSET
    Lat pulldowns some x15x3
    Band Tri press down band x25x4

    SUPERSET
    Seated Klokov 135x10x3
    DB shrugs 125x12x3

    Pretty thrashed, but I feel great.

    Also- gym owner & former competitor is going to coach my DL on Mondays for the next 9 weeks. Hell yes, hands on ass kicking.

    I am going to swing by Armbrust East in the next couple days to check it out. I always need one membership to a 24 hour facility.

    Never been to the OG Armbrust; I'll have to get up north to check it out.

    With my bar ROM, pretty small window for chain movement. Felt good to mix it up some, even if it didn't do me a hell of a lot of good.

    However...I'm freakin STARVING after this session. I've planned out my macros for the remainder of the day, and I'm not sure ill make it. Big boy hungry.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.
