    I wrap hands, then put a glove on. The wrap helps plus you even get a bit of reinforcement on the wrists.

    I typically went 12 x 2 minute rounds with 30-60 seconds off in between. Trust me you will sweat like a mf'er

  2. I didn't realize it until yesterday when I was thinking how sore my legs still are, that my calves are more sore than normal (been thinking this a few days):
    I haven't felt any discomfort in my IT band since that last post here. I'm taking my Dr Scholl's out and putting it in ever shoe I wear. This particular one is a heel support, so that may explain why it's taking longer for my calves to heal. I don't know if I'm doing it without trying, but ever since the doc said I was walking heavy on my heel I've tried to make an effort to either put balanced weight throughout the foot or walk w/ majority pressure on my toes.

    Anyway, that's good news. Going to put in a couple minutes on the treadmill this morning to see how it responds.

    Also... I'm going to try and drop the 2.5g of Melatonin tonight. I've been sleeping very solid for a little over a week, for the most part, so maybe my sleep issue is gone. Even though it's only melatonin, I wake up a little groggy, and I definitely attribute constipation to it. Worst case, I skip a couple more days sleep/workouts, but in the long run try and get my sleep habits back on track.

    Going in for a chest/ab routine shortly.

    My pre meal is 1.5c Almond Milk w/ 1.5s protein shake, mixed in as a coffee creamer with two large cups.

    Pre-WO's are creatine x5g (because I was off so long), Stimul8 x3/4s, and 2 caps Focus. First ever PH (day 3/21).

    I'm taking Focus by ANDRO factory. A mild PH, probably, but my gateway I s'pose. Still debating (or pre-planning) the other cycle we discussed before.

    Notes:

    Back to the normal work week routine. I added in extra fats so pre/intra workout so I’m not scrambling to get them in at night. Figured they’re better ingested around my workout anyway.

    I just now dosed my second cap Level II. My appetite is still at bay from the cap I took this morning, but I love the added afternoon energy as well as keeping my appetite in check through dinner.

    We’ll see how this weeks meals go, but I upped my protein a little and added more fibrous carbs to my diet. My dinner planned is only 670 cals, but is A LOT of food. I still have to eat 8 oz of chicken and two cups steamed collards before then.

    I need to decide and plan my workout for tomorrow too.

    Thanks Simon. I have the diet tuned in nicely, and I really haven't strayed. My biggest issue is getting my fats in. I'll zero that in too, and maybe buy more avocado or something.

    My wife is having an issue only printing the pages needed of that MD manual and she doesn't want me to print it from home because our printer usually eats all the ink in just a few pages.

    Maybe I can go through and copy and paste the ones I need...

    Just have her or you print out 1 week at a time.. Set your printer to its lowest dpi you'll use far less ink.

    EDIT: or take pics and keep them on your phone

    Yeah, I have the layout on Kindle on my phone. I'd want it in larger print though to where I could take notes, etc.

  11. Finished up my calories at 2,399 and 266p/209c/62f and 50 fibers.



    Dang, those fibers! Ain't no stopping my BM tomorrow! Lol.

    Seriously though, about the BM, I have been regular with the exception of this weekend (not having a lot of time). It helps not taking melatonin, and my sleep has been great also without it.

    I really can't think of any side effects of the Level II. If anything, my sleep has improved from where I was several weeks ago. Not saying 100% that they are related.

    I am going to do chest and triceps tomorrow. I usually have a crappy chest workout when I mix those two, but I'll try hard to get in good chest squeezes. Also, I planned exercises that I have never tried or do rarely to change things up.

  16. Nope, should give you some great side-free results - also extremely easy to recover from & keep gains, & gyno & other hairy sides aren't really a concern. Ken ate at a surplus while on it but it should really help preserve your performance & lean mass while cutting.

    That's what I was hoping for. If I were a little smaller is eat at a surplus, but I need to get things under control.

  18. You have to decide if bigger or better is more important to your looks. Either way is fun, but you'll undoubtedly look better in the end.

    I'd definitely like to be bigger and stronger. I just want to make sure health is first. Don't want to permanently screw up anything

  20. 9 days in on Focus. How are you feeling? Any sides?

    I feel great; libido is up a little and my motivation has increased.

    I can't speak on hunger because I've been taking an appetite suppressant.

    Last week I hit a couple PR's, but nothing to write home about. Again, at a caloric deficit I don't expect too much. Like Hyde said, maybe some offset in losing muscle during my cut.

    Visually I'm noticing a difference, but the scale hasn't really moved much (-1.5 ish in a week). To me I look fuller, but not bloated. I didn't do a picture last week because I wasn't really logging Focus.

    Sleep is solid. BM's are regular.

    I'd say aggression hasn't really spiked, but, my intolerance of idiots has increased, and I've always noticed that to be a good sign when on a test booster. As soon as I have images of pounding coworkers' skulls in the pavement I'll know it's strong stuff.

    I plan on doing legs and shoulders twice a week the next couple weeks so I hope that helps increase my numbers/recovery. I've dipped the last few weeks since cutting on them as far as strength goes.

    I wish I DS two bottles, but it wasn't in my post Christmas budget. I wanted to start the new year off with a PH, though.

  22. Oh, 194.2 this morning. That's not bad considering the volume (but it's not a lot of cals) I ate for dinner. I should be >190 by Saturday once I drop some more sodium.

  23. All of this sounds good! Two bottles would have been a great run but budget is the budget. I've noticed the PRs even on a caloric deficit, nice job!

    Notes:

    Just felt a little weak all around when it came to lifting, but, the energy, drive, and focus were all there.
    I had a relatively low sweat today. I guess I wasn’t going as fast as I normally do in super setting.
    I dosed one Level II at 0615, and the other at 0700. Ready to get those fat cells moving! I’ll update more as the day goes….
