    Some respectable numbers are the arms relaxed or flexed?

    Since I missed Bench day yesterday, I kinda worked both Bench and Military Press into today. The first 2 sets of my main exercise are controlled and focused, making sure to contract the core muscle being worked. And the last set is repped out to 1 rep from failure (maybe 2). Since I was working 2 days into one, instead of trying to get all exercises in, I just hit one assisting exercise at 5x10-12 for each main exercise. Definitely felt strong today!

    Bench Press
    145x5
    170x5
    190x9

    Incline DB Hammer Press (60s rest)
    50x10
    50x10
    50x10
    50x7
    40x8

    Standing Military Press
    70x5
    80x5
    90x9

    Seated DB Lat Raise (60s rest)
    30x10
    30x10
    30x10
    30x10
    30x12 (swung body a little more to get a couple more reps)

    Cable Rev-Grip Tricep PDs (tempo 3-2-3)
    120x12
    120x12
    120x10
    *The pause was done when hands were in the middle of the motion, elbow at 90 degrees

    Cardio (Treadmill)
    Walk - 5 min
    Jog - 4 min
    Sprint - 1 min
    Walk - 5 min
    Jog - 5 min
    * I'll get to the point where I'm doing Walk/Jog/Sprint x3 over a 30 min stretch. Although I was about to puke (seriously) at the end of my routine, it felt great to get the heartrate up!

    Diet is starting to get more dialed in as well. I admit I haven't been real strict on what I'm eating since I just came off a bulk, but I am hitting my calories at maintenance. It's just a matter of getting my macros dialed in and ramping up the cardio. I still bet I'll have dropped some weight come Sunday.

    Squats day... Didn't have a LOT of motivation going in but it had to be done. Went out for my cousin's bday party Saturday night and flooded my body with toxins. Sleep wasn't the greatest either. Combine that with the dehydration one suffers after a night of such festivities, and you can see why I had a hard time. But I dug deep and made something of the day.

    Squats
    190x3
    220x3
    245x7
    *Went deeper than usual and kept each rep slow and controlled

    Hyper-extensions
    35x10
    35x9
    35x9
    BWx10
    *paused at bottom to negate body swing and squeezed at the top. Hit the low back/hamstrings nicely.

    One-leg Press
    90x10
    90x10
    90x10

    Cable Crunch
    100x8
    85x10
    70x10
    *As I dropped the weight I concentrated more on getting a full stretch through the abs and squeezed hard through the concentric.

    Cardio-treadmill
    5 min walk
    5 min jog
    5 min walk
    5 min jog

    I've decided to change my routine. I just feel like I get more out of pushing my limits rather than stopping short of failure. So I'm going more towards 5x5 on main compounds lifts (Bench, squats, overhead press, deads) each lift will be followed by an isolated exercise of 8x8 with 60 second rest intervals, and finishing off with 3x12 of a more isolated, full stretching exercise at a 4-2-4 tempo. It's the same routine i've been doing for those who have been following along in my previous threads.

    This Week has been great in the gym! Wednesday I focused on chest and got pumped the fck up! Today was back and I can say my performance is on another level. I'm back to where I feel like I can do set after set with the same intensity. And I recover from my sets a lot faster! I can do a set to failure and in 30 seconds I'm ready to go!

    I got asked if I lost weight yesterday. I've noticed that I look more trim in my dress shirts too. My weight might not be changing much but I do think a lot of what I'm losing is bf so the little bit I lose makes a big difference visually.

    Next week I'll be starting the program I outlined earlier. I've sorta been doing it this week but mosso I've been playing around with different exercises to see what fits together the best for what I'm trying to do.

    Here's a quick PoWO shot with some pumpage but no flex. I honestly didn't realize I had that kind of definition in my back! I know it's not on par with with a lot of you sexy beasts, but as far as my back goes, it's never been something worth noticing.

    Weight is holding at 197. Considering that my diet hasn't been the greatest this week (not real bad either) I was actually glad to see that my weight hadn't changed. Also Snapped a couple pics to compare to the ones from last week.

    Update for the week...OxyElite is treating me nicely! Considering the fact that my diet hasn't been the greatest, I'm still leaning out! I sorta allowed myself this month to be lax on my diet but more strict than I had been during my bulk. But that is coming to an end after this weekend. Super Bowl party on Sunday and then it's nose to the grindstone (whatever that really means...Kleen?). Regardless, every calorie will be accounted for, macros will be set, workout will be spot on... Basically, it's gonna be sexy-making time!

    I was fairly surprised with my deadlifts today... pulled 315 from the floor 3 times pretty easily without straps, could've gotten 5 but I hadn't done deads in awhile so didn't want to push it. But the last time I tried 315 without straps it was a true 1rm that took everything I had. So pretty happy about that!

    I'll update weight on Sunday morning and finish up this log next Sunday with pics and measurements.

    I was fairly surprised with my deadlifts today... pulled 315 from the floor 3 times pretty easily without straps, could've gotten 5 but I hadn't done deads in awhile so didn't want to push it. But the last time I tried 315 without straps it was a true 1rm that took everything I had. So pretty happy about that!

    I'll update weight on Sunday morning and finish up this log next Sunday with pics and measurements.
    Your a monster!!! So you like the oxy pretty good huh?? I can say from what ive seen it is treating you very VERY well...

    Okay Origin of statement time!

    My initial thought was something to do with the work ethic, intent and focus of someone who uses a grindstone for sharpening or shaping things. They need to pay attention to the detail and not lose focus of the task at hand or it could be dangerous or the work could suffer greatly. Upon looking it up for you I found this...

    Milling Theory

    The theory that the phrase "keep your nose to the grindstone," comes from the fact that millers would sniff the stone to make sure that the flour wasn't burning as the stone would have a burnt scent.

    Evidence Against the Milling Theory

    However, it seems that the milling theory does not work. Millers did use stones, but they were not usually called grindstones. As early as 1400, the line, "Ther was gryndulstones in gravy, And mylstones in mawmany" was printed in Tournament Totenham . The Middle English is difficult to interpret, but it points to evidence that there was a difference between grindstones and millstones. The millstones were the ones used in milling.

    Knife Sharpening Evidence

    Knife sharpeners were known to have to stay at the work stations. The work stations were at grindstones for sharpening the knives. The phrase, "keep your nose to the grindstone," implies having to do work. Knife sharpeners were known to have to do hard labor and were sometimes punished.

    While it is not certain that they literally had their noses put to the grindstone, the phrase may have originated from that type of punishment. In 1532, " This Text holdeth their noses so hard to the grindstone, that it clean disfigureth their faces" was written by John Frith in A mirrour or glasse to know thyselfe ."

    Good to hear you're enjoying the OxyELITE Pro. How is it doing for you in the appetite suppression department? Now that you'll have your diet strict I think you'll really start seeing some results.

    Appetite is pretty suppressed. Other than aminos with OJ PrWO and protein shake PoWO I don't actually feel like eating until 11ish. And I wake up at 5am so that's a good long while. I have a pretty decent sized meal for that first one which I take one dose of c20 with. A couple hours later I take my second dose of OEP and an hour after that I eat again with my 2nd dose of c20. A majority of the carbs I take in are with those first two meals then it's mostly protein and veggies the rest of the day. I don't really get hungry in between meals but it's not like I have to force myself to eat either. Very happy with the effects!

    Oh and weight this morning was 195.2, almost 2 lbs down from last week. We are definitely moving in the right direction!

    This week DOMS has been unreal. It feels like I haven't worked out in months! I don't know why this would all of a sudden hit me do hard. Any chance this is a result of the C20?

    Increased muscle soreness isn't something that is commonly reported as a direct result of Compound 20 use. Perhaps being in a caloric deficit is having an impact on your recovery?
