  9. Is there a reason you've been avoiding compound movements the last couple workouts? I know you db pressed the other day but the major work seems like you're working around something painful or maybe really pressed for time? Not being critical, merely curious

    Yeah I actually had a pretty bad muscle strain in my back and neck the other day. My doctor told me to take it easy for about a week and to lower the weight. This coming up week I'm going to be adding more volume into my sets. This past week I also haven't taken any pre workouts haha. Really tough taking a stim break. My normal workouts take 1-1.5 hours to complete and the last week I've been done in about 45 minutes. I'll get back to the squats and bb overhead in about a week or so

  11. I suspected as much. A cut is a very brutal time to take a stim break btw. Keep being smart so you don't re-hurt it and you'll be back at it before you know it.

    Sooner the better haha. With the way my diet is set up I'm actually eating more carbs now than I was when I was bulking aka getting fat haha. So I'm hoping to get an extra boost from that. I did snag some c4 50x today though because it was like 10 or so bucks off, so I'll have that ready in a little over a week when I ease my way back into taking caffeine/stims

  19. Today's workout with 2 caps of epicatechin:

    3x12 squats

    3x9 dumbbell over head press
    (Trying to go heavier each week with these)

    Notes:
    Noticing some extra fullness that can possibly be accredited to the epicatechin

  20. About to do some cardio this morning, going to be taking two caps with 2 grams of l carn(carnigen) and a cap of caffeine

  21. Alrighty gonna be taking two caps before cardio in the morning, but I gotta say, I'm not getting the endurance boost that I've gotten in the past with -Epi products. I may go a day where I dose higher

  22. Have you been using 2 caps so far or one?

  23. 2 caps. Off the top of my head I think that is around half a gram(500 mg) of epicatechin. I honestly noticed the most benefit in the past with about 1 gram pre workout
