    Will do, making sure to keep things stretched, and of course if I feel anything negative - it stops.

    On top of the water... ensuring 2gal per day if not more.

    Too easy to stretch those bad boys out throughout the day, especially after intense cardio.
    When I could still run, 5+ mile runs with hills used to make mine real tight. I made sure to stretch every hour or two throughout the rest if the day. Helped immensely.
    Thanks for the tip bro

  2. Back from my trip to New York. Had a fantastic time. Nasty show at the Comedy Cellar was definitely the highlight for me...

    My first dose of G8 will be tonight. First workout on this will be tomorrow morning after a 5km run. Should be a sweet ride, and sorry for the wait.

  9. Alright, let's get this off to a blazing start.

    Last night, had my first dose of G8. 1/2 a scoop around 1120pm. I have the Lemon flavor, it mixed really well, not a bad taste at all, no after taste, no sediment. The last time I looked at the clock it was 1136pm. Next thing I knew it was 718am and that was just a blink as when I finally opened my eyes it was 843am. 9 hours of sleep; 8 hours unbroken - impressive. As mentioned earlier, I typically average 5 hours, 6 if I am lucky .. and it is always broken either with nightmares, or bathroom breaks.

    Sleep last night - 8 hours unbrokend - E****lent
    Dream status - if I had one, I am clueless to it
    Morning feeling - slightly groggy but shook it off relatively fast.

    Workout:

    8/17/13

    Got up: dumped 4 caps of MaxPUMP into a scoop of Ignite and was out the door for my run.

    Warmup - 5km run through park (fasted). First run in 5 days. Knees, etc felt good, had a good pace going as well.

    Day 1 - Upper Body Power

    Bent Over Rows - Rest 90 seconds
    160x5
    160x5
    180x5
    190x5
    200x5 - thought I tweaked my back a little on the last couple of rows, but I am fine...

    Wide-Neutral Grip Pulldowns - 45 seconds rest
    200x10
    210x10
    220x8

    Close-grip Palms facing Pulldowns - 45 seconds rest
    200x10
    210x10
    210x8

    Bench Press - 90 seconds rest
    180x8
    180x8
    260x5
    270x5
    270x4

    Flat Dumbbell Press - 60 seconds rest
    70x10
    70x8
    70x8 - really pushed hard for 9 but only got it up half way before failing

    Military Shoulder Press - 90 seconds rest
    160x8
    160x8
    160x8

    Ez Bar Curls supersetted with Facepulls - 30 seconds rest after each superset
    100x10 / 100x12
    100x10 / 100x12
    100x10 / 100x10

    Closegrip Bench Press supersetted with Machine Flies - 30 seconds rest after each superset
    165x10 / 100x10
    165x10 / 100x10
    165x8 / 100x9


    All in all this was a great first workout. Really enjoyed my time away from lifting (5 days total), but last night was definitely itching to get back into the garage. Had great energy throughout and a solid pump by the end of my session.

    This evening I will add in a second cardio session: 8km fast paced walk (2km of which is uphill).

    My first dose of BCAA/SAA will be after this cardio session - which will be 2 hours post dinner.

    Thanks again to Iparatroop and Finaflex for this opportunity to sleep!

    Mini update: as no weight session today.

    After my 8km Liss session @ 1015pm last night I dosed my BCAA/SAA. This stuff tastes so good.

    Doesed G8 at 130am, and was out like a light till 920am. (Thankfully I have the week off work).

    Sleep last night - 7 3/4 hours without waking once.
    Dream status - NO dreams
    Morning feeling - Woke refreshed.

    Upon rising did a fasted run - 8km (2 of which were uphill and almost killed me lol).

    This evening I will add a second cardio session - 8km LISS fast paced walk.

    BCAAs before the run? Can't stress enough the need for bcaa before fasted training to help preserve muscle mass.
