  1. Meadows rows are awesome. I just put my hand on my quad or knee.

    Apple Fusion is delicious and half a scoop of G8 puts me out like a light!

    Good looking log thus far bro.
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns


  2. Only issue I have with Meadow's rows is when the bar starts to twist when using a heavier load. Makes it hard to maintain grip. Started using straps for them and they helped immensely. Great exercise. If you keep your hand off of your quad, you'll engage the core a little more. I cheat and use my quad sometimes though.

    Yeah, I use them to try to work the core as an anti-rotation exercise as well.

    I was looking for straps (because I forgot mine) but just used a thumbless grip and it worked out OK.

  4. Hit the hill today at my old high school, wasn't really tight so I didn't do any mobility stuff before hand.

    Talked to some of my old football coaches, one was a Major in the Army so we talked a little bit. Got a lot of comments about how much thicker I was, hell last time I talked to them I weighed 145 pounds (which they remembered, 3 years later!)

    Anyway, the training:

    Pre: 4 caps Max Pump, 2 caps Uncut
    Intra: half scoop BCAA/SAA (put a whole scoop, but didn't finish the drink and have half left to mix with G8 tonight)


    Workout:
    8 x Hill Sprint


    The hill:

    Felt good, sprinted up walked down and sprinted back up. Worked up a good sweat, got the heart rate up. Working on my speed today, conditioning is high right now. Not too out of breath (and uncut always helps to open up the airway for me).

  5. I am glad to see you refer to that as a hill..ppl in northern Indiana would call that a mountain

    It's real flat out in Indiana? I've only ever passed through on the way to Michigan (family lives up there)

    There were some real mmonster hills we ran back on Ft. Bragg, but I much prefer the one at the HS. Hell, I've run on that hill for damn near 6 years lol.

    Mostly flat, especially northern - that's some seriously flat land, never been to the great plains, but I could imagine it would be similar. There's a bit more interesting terrain getting closer to the river in southern IN, but nothing I'd call a mountain.

    exactly man - southern Indiana is totally different than the layout up north here - they actually have some pretty beautiful views/nature settings, vs up here it's like all corn
    I actually refer to southern Indiana as northern Kentucky tho
    both in terrain, and the ppl's different, um, outlook in life down that way

    That's my second jug of Vanilla. Tastes great, good quality blend, and if you can find it for a good price its worth the buy.

    I also have two chocolate that my wife drinks. Its the only protein she can stand to drink.

    I like food that looks like vomit, that way I know what it'll look like in case I can't stomach it.

    I do mine on a T bar row machine, works out amazingly well. The barbell version works well though too.

  25. Sleep update!:

    Half scoop last night around 130ish, wife was watching house and the eyelids started getting really heavy by about 145ish. Turned off the TV (after she fell asleep, she's one of those people that need noise to sleep) and passed out at 2. Woke up at 1220, very alert and energized. Didn't wake up for anything all night, or morning.

  28. Hit the gym for RE lower earlier this evening.

    Had a good workout overall, energy was lacking a little bit but that is probably from the time between my preworkout and starting the workout (~60 minutes). Right RC is giving me fits today, and has been since Wednesday. Gonna keep an eye on it and not push it too hard, probably just a mild strain of the infraspinatus.

    Anyway....


    RE Lower

    Pre: 1/2 Scoop Muscle Marinade, 4 caps Max Pump
    Intra: 1 Scoop BCAA/SAA

    Warm-up: Agile 8, Band Pull aparts, Y Pull Aparts, Over and Backs, Back Squat up to 225 x 6

    275 x 8, 315 x 7
    http://youtu.be/J-GpAtegIcE
    + Oly Shoes

    Front Squat: 185 x 5, 225 x 5, 245 x 5
    http://youtu.be/ZlkSnayUgtw
    Hold: 405 x 21 seconds

    Good Morning: 225 x 5 x 4 (fast tempo, got the heart rate up good)

    Got some Oly Shoes today, gonna start playing with my foot spacing on back squat and see if I can't take a little stress off of the knees and hips that way. Hip flexors were locking me up today during my Back Squatting, knees got a little wobbly on a couple of the reps, but most of them felt good (except for the hip flexor thing I mentioned)

    Good session overall, had planned for some back work but decided against it based on the way my RC was feeling today.

    Intra set recovery was pretty good overall, didn't take too much time between sets before moving on. Sweating up a storm today (not as much as with stimul8, but still a lot), feeling good, quads are hurting from all of the squatting today.

  29. Hope the shoes work for ya. Weird getting used to
