    OBSERVATIONS

    Unexpected strength in the gym. Interestingly, endurance seems not at all improved. On my first set of every exercise, I found that I could not do any more reps than usual, but as the weight increased, I was able to do more reps than usual and even use more weight. This is a very good sign, considering that I am only 5 days into this stack. If things keep on this tack, I will be very satisfied.

    I was unable to exert full control over my diet and even though I had thought that I must have eaten much less than maintenance, after adding it all up, I am about 700 calories above maintenance.

    Rest day. I have been helping my best friend prepare her new place, so I was semi active today. Tomorrow I help her move, which is fine, since the gym is closed again, so it will replace working out.

    OBSERVATIONS

    Look! I got plenty of protein!! My appetite is totally off the hook. I am restraining myself.

    Strength was difficult to assess since my shoulder prevents me from going heavy on chest. Tomorrow is legs day so that will be a good assessment of where I am going with my strength.

    Libido is noticeably increased.

    I had almost a full container of cottage cheese before I went to bed last night. It didn't affect sleep at all. This is my new bedtime ritual from now on.Try it. I just want to see your total calories go through the roof. More Protein Grunt! More PROTEIN!!!

    I would bro, I would. I have this thing, where I will eat something ONLY if it is organically grown, and I have not been able to find organic cottage cheese. Most of the foods are available organically-grown, heck I can even get Philly-like cream cheese in organic. For $6 a pack but that's another story. No cottage for the Grunt. Until...

  10. FnF looks forward to Grunts leg workout I hope to see some good news.

    I was going to mention the price. Must be just as bad as over here where the price is almost double that of the non organic stuff. We have a decent independant health grocery store here.Next time I go there I will see if they carry any organic cottage cheese and where they get it.

    ?

  12. I wish I were able to eat cottage cheese. When I put a spoonful in my mouth it feels like the consistency of throw up. Anyway back to your first post, a 3 min rest is a bit long to me. But whatever works.

  13. Try these brands...you can search on their site for local stores. They at least carry their milks....

    Organic Valley
    Horizon Organic

    dude, I gotta ask...I looked at your fitday diet to see the mega-eating (curious). What is up with almost a 1/2 cup of maple syrup?? or 5T of butter? and 24t of raw sugar?

    I understand. I was a Vegan for 3 years. I was um..anal. You are in Montreal, right? I'm sure you could get small quantities shipped to you or suggest it to your local SuperMarche'.

    Right... This was bound to come up sooner or later, so here:

    1. The grocery stores were closed on the 1st and 2nd, and on the 2nd I helped my best friend move in with me. The guests on new year's and the busy time on moving day (2nd) did a number on my food reserves and I was stuck - poor me - eating pancakes on the morning of Jan.3. I won't do it again, sorry. NOT! Hey I'm bulking right.

    2. Maple syrup is yummy. Tasty calories, what?

    3. Sugar. Yes, sugar. Well I add it in my postworkout shakes, since when getting my custom mix made, I went for 15% (not 15g as I had in mind) of dextrose. So I have not enough sugar in my shake to trigger insulin, which is my goal. So by adding sugar, I get my slin and I'm happy. My log just looks sloppier than it is.

    Things are getting back in order now, I've had 2 cans of tuna and I'll be having chicken later. Cool?

  17. Don't MAKE me send the diet Nazi's to your crib dog!

    OBSERVATIONS

    I had an appointment at 1:30PM to look at my shoulder before proceeding to surgery. I ended up seeing the doc at 4PM and I got out of there after X-rays at 5PM. "FREE" health care. Ugh. Then I went to the optometrist to get my contact lenses, and then hit the gym at nearly 6PM. I had eaten at 12:45 PM so I was about 5 hours after my last meal when I trained. Far from good. So my workout was not as good as I had foreseen but strength was good. My stiff-legged-deadlift is the first exercise that I perform with equal weights and reps to what I was doing before injuring myself back in late May.

    Appetite is still very strong. Looking at myself in the mirror, I seen to have gained some muscle. I feel harder under the layer of fat, which is good. Weight was down Żlb from yesterday, unsurprisingly since I had only 2 small meals in me at 6PM at the time of weighing myself.

    It may be any of a dozen other possibles, but I feel that I am expelling more water since starting this. I get some dry-sinus headaches when I wake up in the morning, on my second bladder-emptying trip to the bathroom for the night.

    OBSERVATIONS

    I was pressed for time because my stupid gym closes at 6PM on weekends. So I decided to stack my biceps and triceps exercises into compound sets. So of course I was unable do this workout in a way that is truly comparable to last time.

    Still, I had some surprising strength. 225x5 on the close grip bench extension was downright easy, to my surprise, as that was the maximum weight I have ever used on that exercise. It is a cross between a close-grip benching exercise and a barbell triceps extension. At the bottom of this movement, the back of my hands nearly touch my shoulders. Anyways so after the 225x5, I put 245 up but my injured shoulder would have none of that. So I guess I'll be working with 225 until it is better. I moved on to another exercise, being somewhat pressed for time.

    On a final note, I noticed some visible muscle growth in the mirror today.

    OBSERVATIONS

    Another strong workout. Shoulder exercises are all up 10-20 lbs from last time 2 weeks ago, which is a very good improvement in my book. I am getting close to pre-injury levels on quite a few exercises, shrugs being a very notable but unsurprising exception given the nature of the injury.

    Appetite is still wild, as you can see I got a full thousand calories more than I spent. I feel that I have gained a little bit of fat at the beginning of my run but have not gained any more since about day 3. I believe I am experiencing a slight side-effect of almost imperceptible lightheadedness at times.
