    Just popped the Max Pump, and have my morning doses mixed up and ready for 0330.

    I decided to go against my 'no cutting till February' rule. I'm going to take advantage of the Thermo in Stimul8 and add ECA and drop back down to 180-185, then start again bulking. Shouldn't take but about 6 weeks to get there... 4 if I don't miss a step.
    Word of caution my friend - don't dose your ECA to close to Stimul8.

    I know how you feel. Lack of sleep last night, and not enough to eat throughout the day left me feeling very empty when it was time to hit the weights. My run took so much out of me.

    I was thinking Stimul8 at 0420-0430, and the ECA between 0630-0700. You think that's spaced enough?

    Yep... 2 hours apart is perfect (for me anyway)

    I didn't take it the wrong way.

    I didn't think the two would interfere with each other, as far as logs go. Stimul8 was what prompted me to want to run a post-wo Thermo, and eca makes me feel funny.

  9. Ya ECA is certainly not a fit for everyone.

    Does it make you feel funny too?

    I think I was crashing hard also, and it was making me irritable.

    No, doesn't make me feel funny at all. I actually like it and I also like ECY.

    It can make me irritable though.

  12. Level II is still going great. Figured I'd jump back over here for an update that is not supp related...

    So, I took the Docs advice and went and got the Dr Scholl's inserts for my boots. I immediately felt (some) relief, and knew over time it'd feel a lot better. Well, it gradually did but never 100%.

    So, I ran yesterday for the first time in a while and today my IT band/Achilles feels like it did before the inserts. I guess I'm stuck to the elliptical or bike for cardio until it's 100%. That drives me crazy. I hate them both.

  13. That's why I don't do cardio period: I hate it. I'll just lift weights faster if I wanna increase my caloric expenditure.

    Give it a couple of weeks and try again. I am horrible with an elliptical. Everytime I have tried one - it just doesn't seem to work for me lol

    I wish I could use this method. But I feel the need to run. Mind you I also don't mind going for my runs (ok not so much in this sh*t weather!)

  16. Yeah if you like it go for it! Something about cardio I've always hated; I can't recall a single time I enjoyed it. It's either boring & not remotely challenging or it's boring & excruciating, but never rewarding for me. I know avoiding cardio isn't healthy, but I often have to remind people that there's nothing inherently healthy about wanting to lift 800lbs.

    I lift quicker also, but the 1 on 1 off sprints feel good to me. I like the HR spike, an overall I feel better throughout the day.

    Slow runs drive me nuts. Sprinting, and decreasing the break time in between makes me feel accomplished.

    My issue with the elliptical is that I fatigue my legs way before I feel it in the HR. Also, the swing of the elliptical feels like it could push my knees past the comfort zone when trying to 'sprint' on it.

  18. I rarely hit the elliptical. My cardio is usually the "boxer's workout" I would much rather hit something or slam something than swing my arms and legs back and forth and not go anywhere lol

    I used to live the KenpoX workout with p90x. I'd do the punches with weights; felt great.

    I no longer have that video, but we have punching bags at my gym. Can you and @kenpoengineer help me out with some quick boxing/Kenpo cardio-routines?

    When I went through my huge weightloss phase and for a while there after I did 30 minute head bag routine. Would sweat my ass off... was great. But then I moved and have no where to hang it as the garage is 'finished'. I need to by a stand as you are right terrific working and fun as hell.

    Just hitting for 30? Any kind of tempo, or anything?

    Actually just hitting the heavy bag continuously for 1 min, taking a rest for 1 min then back on for 6 rounds will raise the HR into the cardio zone. Just take the boxers stance with arms up and throw combinations at the bag: jab/cross, jab/cross/uppercut, double jab/cross, etc.

    Word. Gonna try that tomorrow.

    May be a stupid question, but, do I wear gloves?

  24. Boxers or briefs? It's just a personal choice

    Absolutely wear gloves. I use bag gloves or sometimes put on my boxing gloves. Make sure you don't bend the wrists as you throw the punches as you can injure your wrists. Have fun and make sure you have a sweat towel ready! Also, you can make it more challenging by moving and throwing punches.
