    30 seconds to a minute between sets...maybe 1-2 minutes between exercises...a decent pace, but not at all exauhsting...

  3. wow it's kind of disconcerting that no one wants to argue with me about overtraining...dammit.

  4. well.........

    you kinda set yourself up by ASKING for it.......

    why do i want to fight a winless fight?

  5. I always am the one guy on this side of the fence when it comes to this...oh well, you're probably right...

    and how is it a winless fight? i was honestly just looking for some opinions...

  6. Quick update today...day 8...

    I seem to be holding a little extra water in my stomach and obliques the past day or so...not sure if this is due to a lack of water during the way or what. I'm driving over an hour each way to work right now so I am trying to cut down consumption a little. I'll be be able to tell better over the next few days cuz i don't have to make the drive until next tuesday!!!

    The only other thing I really have to say is that I am getting some discomfort in my joints. Not pain, but more of a tenderness...mostly my knees and my wrists...

    Anyone want to chime in on this one?

  7. i'm trying to get you an answer, pump............

  8. appreciate it...does it dry out joints at all?

  9. shouldn't.........

    but could be low estrogen issues, so if it continues, you could drop down to 3 per day and see how that goes..

  10. dropping down doses doesn't seem like something I would really want to do...if it gets worse I'll think about it.

  11. i was going to say since it lowers estro it might dry the joints a little but since you say you seem watery that might not be the case!
    Very interested Pump let us know how what you find out over the next couple of days!!

  12. Iron it looks like you have quite a few shakes in your diet, and I was wondering what you mix them with; skim, whole milk, or water?

  13. I mix the casien with skim...the rest with water.

    I just came on to glance at a few threads. I'll update this tonight with some good stuff once I get home tonight.

    Happy Easter!

  14. Alright cool, I really like the simplicity of your diet. It looks like it would be relatively easy to stick too. Thanks for the quick response.

    As you can see I am new here and I look forward to learning as much as possible.

    a lot of people say that. it is nice and simple...easy to take to work and to the rents place or wherever...

  16. Day 13...

    So I feel like I need to comment on this weekend. I cannot go to my parents house, especially when the sister is home as well, without getting hounded to eat something good. I ended up giving into lasaugna on saturday night and ham/augratin potatoes/other things and desert on sunday for easter.

    Other then those two I stuck to the rest of the diet plan.



    I also want to go back to my original weight becuase I never posted what the 199 I got the next morning. Which is my true starting weight. As of today I am sitting around 203.8. I am sure atleast half a pound of that will go away in a day or two though.

    I am still holding a bit more water. My strength is still increasing. I haven't been able to get a decent night sleep this weekend until last night (which was only 7 hrs because entourgage premiered), so this could play into my holding water.

    I will get good sleep tonight. I will do cable rows over 240lbs today and I will do lat pulldowns over 240 today. I am going to the gym a little late today though because I need to pick my car up from the shop because I finally got my brakes done...

    After that I'll have a good idea of how much money I can spend at nutra this month. Probably won't be much more than a 10lbs bag of whey, a 4lbs jug of casien and a kilo of bcaas...I'm thinking of trying out trueprotein this time, maybe though...not sure yet.

    Will update tomorrow, hopefully.

  17. 2 weeks in...

    Just about at the halfway point...

    I had a great workout yesterday. Strength is still increasing, as I jumped up to 255 for cable rows and lat pulldowns...the last time I was this strong was on a SD cycle, so i'm impressed in that regard.

    As far as asthetics go, I am still holding that water. No biggy though. If it is the HDx2 I will drop it a week or so after I get done...

    Also, an update as far as my joints are concerned...I did Back and Bis yesterday and with heavy preachers I had no discomfort in my wrists. I definately expected some. So maybe I wasn't getting enough rest. But I will keep this log updated if it changes.

    Weight today was 202.8 (just like i thought it would be).

    Oh and I'm looking for a new job, so anyone in the greater philly area in the banking/lending/finance profession want to hire me, let me know...haha... I don't think the interview last week panned out but it was quite a competitive position that I don't think I was quite enthusiatic enough about...Oh well, I'll find something...

    Until next time...

  18. GOOD LUCK on the job hunt!

  19. Day 16...

    Quick update...the scale read 199 this morning. I don't see how. My weight fluctuates like crazy...

    I am a bit moody. A lot more confidence recently as well. I am summing this one up to the increase in test.

    Acne is beginning to clear a bit. It wasn't too bad to begin with but it seems like my body is getting used to the higher test levels.


    On another note. I think I might need to play with my diet a bit more. Any suggestions on how to increase cals, where to do it and which macros need to be adjusted? I'm thinking a bigger meal 1, 3 and maybe 4...But I really don't have the time to play with it.

  20. post your diet up again and lets see what we an do!

  21. What, you can't scroll back to the first post....haha...


    1. 6 egg whites, 1 yolk, 1 cup rolled oats
    2. 2 scoops whey, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 banana
    3. 9 oz. tuna (1.5 can), 1 cup rolled oats
    4. 3 scoops whey, 1 apple (I like gala and granny smith)
    5. 8-10oz chicken breast, 1 cup steamed veggies
    6. 1 scoop casein w/ 10oz skim milk, 1oz almonds, 1 cup fat free cottage cheese.

  22. if you want help with your diet, then you will COMPLY!

  23. mace, please look up...

  24. i know.........

    but you said that i couldn't go back to post one, so i was answering THAT.

  25. I'm thinkign of moving it to 8 or 10 whites and 2 yolks....plus 1.5 cups of oats in meal 1...

    and then adding something to meal 4...I don't know waht I can put in there thats easily transportable...I usually eat that in the car on the way to the gym....

  26. what about the rest of the tuna, as you eat 1.5 cans earlier

  27. I think there are already enough cals there from protein...if I was to add anything it would be fat or carbs...

    then go for some peanut butter!

  29. Yea, I'm thinking natural pb on a salt free whole wheat rice cake

  30. SURE!

    I love natty PB!

    try that (and the other changes you mentioned) for a few days and see where you are!

    also, ever think about getting some BCAAs? like Xtend? drinking them pre/during/post workout?
