Just post some more pics of yourself instead.

First of all.. pre/during workout took some whiteflood.. and I gotta say, I felt Fcuking invincible. And yes even though I already did shoulders and cardio this morning. The gym was packed during peak time, I ask myself why I went during then when I had the whole day to myself yes bb curls in MY SQUAT rack, legpress machine taken... people sharing benches. WTF. Never fear, I grabbed some dumbbells.
.. db lunges 3 sets: 12x39s (PR!! PR!!)
.. squats 3 sets: 8x99; 3,4x110
.. leg press 3 sets: 15x something, 6,10 x I don't what weight
.. good mornings: 3 sets: 15x44, 12x55, 8x66
.. hypers: 3 sets x 12
.. seated calves: 2 sets x 12+hybrid (about 120 all up)
...Cardio: 15min slowish, slight incline tready
I think legs got fatigued a bit come squat time, but but.. lunges were actually not that bad! I think if I started with those on leg day, I could easily do 20kgs provided they don't fall out of my fingers. I was kinda saving myself for squats.. which I finally managed to hog the rack. Pressing I was going to count the weight after I finished and unpacked the weights, but some dude was waiting on it. BUTTTT he had to take some off, so me =
Diet.. carbs high once again.. I swear they make me happy. And the fact that I actually feel leaner and better on carbs is even more amazing. I think they are here to stay.. sure I ate the same thing.. but hey, what can I say I'm addicted to oats..
3) White rice, chicken, tomato
5) Oats whey
threw in some efas in there as well.

Busy the next couple of days,, with some early starts.. not sure if I can lift, I'll try and at least get in some cardizzle.
06-05-2007, 05:24 PM
I am assuming your hypers are only with bw but nonetheless 3x12 is pretty impressive. You must have some strong hammys. Keep it up.
06-06-2007, 03:14 AM
Ha I wish my hammies were strong! Which reminds me, I should ditch those pansy good mornings and practice some GHRs instead.. haven't done them for ages, but when I did I could only manage partial ones, and they crippled me for at least 3 days, haha
---- AM - CARDIO
25min elliptical - random intervals..
.. light (level 5-9)
.. heav(ier) - (level 10-16)
..warmup + cooldown -- 15mins.. took ages coz it was sooo damn cold. Winter sucks already
.. stretching 10mins.. these made a rare appearance today.. when I have to resort to stretching.. it means I am feeling like a 95 year old. I really should do some more, heh
---- PM - CARDIO
ok I chickened out. Was planning to do back, but work kept me late and meh meh meh yes excuses I tried.. but wasn't into it..
2 sets cable rows
2 sets wide pulldowns
2 sets narrow pulldowns
2 sets lat activation stuff
then CARDIO.. 1 hour combat class
I'll do back again next workout coz this one was not very good!
yesterday I ate badly.. all it was was grub food - bars, cottage cheese, nuts, more bars.. and some broc for dinner ..
Today was also very busy but I prepared a little in advance, so not as bad as yesterday:
2) Kidney beans, chicken, brocolli
3) Kidney beans, roo, brocolli
5) Curry chicken, rice, pumpkin soup.. Mmm

Opinion on the Roo and other Australian meat.
I like the taste, but hows the nutrient break down?
06-06-2007, 08:20 PM
06-06-2007, 08:35 PM
Nelix.. kanga is pretty much one of the healthiest meats you can have.. but I am pretty biased.. check out the nutritional stats..
per 100g ==> 22-23g protein, 1g fat, 1g carbs, high in iron, arachidonic acid/pufa, you've tried it before? Tastes kinda gamey but I prefer it over beef.. if you cook it right!
More info here: Nutrition and heart health aspects of kangaroo meat
06-06-2007, 08:40 PM
Kill those kanga for me!!!!!!!!!!
that's good meat right there!!!!!!!!!!
I want all my burgers and hot dogs meat made using made using kanga meat!
06-06-2007, 10:02 PM
Yeah, I tried it raw even, I like the gamy taste, re minds me of liver haha.
I may go pick some up if I find a good price.
06-06-2007, 10:09 PM
hmm.. you can get it for ~$6 a kilo at coles/woolies.. the steaks cost a bit more, the sausages are pretty tasty too, if you want a change.. uh.. raw?? hahah I am not sure I'm "game" enough for that.. har har har..
06-06-2007, 10:13 PM
As long as its fresh and not been frozen (and not chicken) I'll eat it.
Ideal situations I would prefer it sealed... haha.

Do you cook your oats then add the whey? Or the other way around? When I do this mine gets all gluggy and yuk.
06-08-2007, 10:20 AM
your banner is back on!
yay! I like the australia zoom in thingy. NICE!
06-08-2007, 05:36 PM
Eh, gotta thank Pu for the banner, he made it!
Secrets? hahah I will let you in this time only..
My breakfast takes literally two minutes to make.
..Blend oats/oatbran (I use a little magic bullet thing)
..Dump oats in a bowl, add in boiling water SLOWLY stirring, ..keep stirring/adding water until you like the consistency
..Add your whey, cinnamon, splenda, spices, (sometimes I throw in some chocomine) whatever and quick stir again. FOOLPROOF
Lumps lumps.. I personally like mine lumpy, so it feels like I'm actually eating something (yeah I'm weird like that) BUT if you like it smooth, before you add hot water, add in some room temperature water (enough to mix it all) and then add hot water. This makes it smooth, try it and let me know
Quick update.. keeping track of things again.. waist and ab measurements have gone down by 1cm since recommencing (~a weekish or a little more) weight is unchanged. Calipers tell me I've lost some bodyfat, but either they are or the measurer (aka me) sucks, I don't really trust it at all!
So this week, I will most likely try to keep my training sessions as are, or maybe add a cardio in, and drop cals by roughly 100-200 a day.. Right now I am probably averaging around 2000 cals.. kinda kept high, but I'm doing a crap load of workouts too.. slow and steady wins right? I think I am taking the right approach, I don't really like to starve.
06-08-2007, 05:47 PM
can we request more pix? some with some lighting
06-08-2007, 09:17 PM
Sure, you can request whatever you want! Whether or not I succumb to them is another matter

Ok summary of what I did this week:::
Sunday - rest
Monday - AM: shoulders/cardio; PM: legs
Tuesday - rest
Wednesday - AM cardio, PM cardio
Thursday - AM Back
Friday - PM Cardio
this morn - AM - light chest
I am pretty fatigued. This morning I did chest, but nothing really worthy of posting. My heart wasn't really into it and I was just going through the motions. I'm a little stressed out right now with school, the weather has been real ****ty on my mood as well.. the second half of this week really had me draggin'... and and and I can't stop thinking bout someone heh grrrrrrr maybe that is the main reason, buts I gotta keep focusing.. can't afford to fail my exams now.... arghh and I have been stress eating a bit as well.. that can't be good... um um what else.. time to stop procrastinating... how about a sappy song.. have a great weekend in the sun all.. no doubt I am so jealous!!

Hey ddawg, nice to see ya here
Hey guys and girls I think I strained sometnhing in my hamstring arghh..I was all ready to work legs.. but I guess they were not very warm when I tried the stiff leggeds.. trust me to be silly enough to wear shorts in 10degrees ... so leg workout did not eventuate much past a few squats.. then i got conned into doing a pump class.. haha it was kind of a joke. so yeah..i don't think i can count it as either cardio nor lifting.. more just a waste of time! Well I'm probably gonna write an essay for a bit, and when I get bored/stuck I'll try and go again this afternoon.. maybe for some shoulders and spin.... at least it will be something to look forward to today.. oh yeah.. apparently it's the queens birthday today. I have zero idea why anyone cares.. Even though I'm stuck at home all day and the gym and shopping hours are less than normal.. it is an extra public holiday, can't complain right? Dammit I am ranting more than usual.. I think I belong back in the female journalling section.. ahhh hehe

oh yeahhhh random comment... "your calves are too big they're ugly!" haha Thanks mum! Just ruin my 1.5 years attempting to get my legs less chopstick like!!
06-11-2007, 01:18 AM
You are not the only one who wears shorts in the winter. I have a real hard time lifting in sweats or any type of pants.
Sorry to hear about the hammy, make sure to ice and rest it! I'm too far away to offer a massage.
06-11-2007, 01:27 AM
I have adapted your oat secrets, mix my protein with water first so it does not cook into little lumps.
What's your opinion on Milo? My post workout shake is Milo + Hydro Whey.
(asking here because asianbabe is the only aussie I know here)
06-11-2007, 03:11 AM
hey ddawg, at least it is the thought that counts!
nelix, uhh,. hmm.. what's in milo again? just sugar? How does hydro whey taste like.. Bearable? Do you notice much of a difference? I've have some bulk wpi pwo, and some flavoured stuff.. dymatize pre-wo, and syntrax nectar (tastes awful, never again.. the whole tub is still sitting here waiting to expire)
I add cocoa powder sometimes, now I do chocamine, and a good slashing of sweetener... maybe you can check out diet swiss miss..Calories in Swiss Miss Diet With Calcium Hot Cocoa Mix - Nutrition Facts, and Healthy Alternatives - The Daily Plate Calorie Counter you can find them in coles/woolies.. probably has a better nutrient profile, tastes alright!.. though for post-workout milo probably won't matter so much
oh yeah.. since my first bottle has run out (and waiting around for another to come.. damn shipping, damn weekend, damn public holiday!!) I have been ravenous!!
06-11-2007, 05:51 AM
Milo is a milk beverage with chocolate and malt, produced by Nestlé and originating from Australia.
They say it is low gi, full of vitamins and minerals...
When I mix milo with hydro whey (from myo), it tastes good, which is what is amazing, it does not even smell like vomit!
Combined with Yellowgold or Anabolic Pump it's carbs might be nice?
Although I mostly avoid carb drinks and try to eat real food...
06-11-2007, 11:41 PM
yeah, haha I know what milo is that's why I suggested that alternative..with a little less sugar
Tuesday - shoulders, cardio
Everything in supersets, little rest in between, here's what I can remember doing..
db shoulder press: 10x17s, 10x17s, 6x22s, 6x22s, 10x17s
cg bb press: 15x39, 15x39, 6x44, 10x44, 15x39
upright rows: 15x25 (4 sets)
db extensions 15x22s (4 sets)
mp: 3 sets til fail
db lat raises 3 sets
dips: 3 sets: 6,4,4,5
hamstring still hurts.. tested it out today and it was no good
06-12-2007, 12:40 AM
06-12-2007, 01:29 AM
Ahh, tis good to give the neck a stretch every now and again
Thanks for dropping by Fits.. seriously, I have found it difficult to build any slight little bit of muscle, so I consider this good progress
06-12-2007, 01:41 AM
06-12-2007, 05:10 AM
hahah advice taken!!! **takes notes and memorises these wise words** actually I have only ever felt pukey on leg days!
Tuesday (round 2) - legs & cardio
sumo deads - worked up to 3 sets of 3x132
sumo squat - worked up to 3 sets of 3,4,3x110
db lunges - 2 sets: 10/10 x 39s
narrow leg press - 2 setsx10 x~200 or so
then 45min spin
Yes my hammies are F***d, and if they weren't before, they are now . Haha But I'm happy I worked out.. that's all that matters heh?
Felt a bit of a twitch doing deads, nothing during squats (they are always just painful).. lunges killed as normal, but it hurt again when I was doing leg press... so I kept it light and narrow. Got conned (again!) into doing cardio.. I was just about to leave after legs and literally got dragged into RPM, which was good I guess, for leg recovery (or it might be thought of as more leg torture).
By the time I got home after all that, it was about 5 hours since my last meal.. and I was ravenous. Not anymore
So to wrap up today's day: 2 workouts, a cardio session, and a monged up hamstring!!
Final review shortly...
06-12-2007, 10:23 AM
Final Review, thoughts, musings...
Generally I don't give numbers/ratings for my product reviews, rather I just go with what I thought stood out in a qualitative manner. Ratings don't mean a lot to me, and usually they detract the reader from actually reading the review.. hehe I am guilty of that too... sooo.. if you want to know what I thought about it, you will have to read the whole thing.. no fancy headings, no spoonfeeding! This review being no different, will be assessed according to the circumstances I have been through the past month or so.. for those who have been following my log, they would know what I mean..
The first and perhaps the best thing I liked about Red Acid Gen 2 was its appetite suppression factor. It made it pretty tough to eat my next meals (and on time) because I would normally get hungry around the 2-3 hour mark.. with RA I didn't think very much of food at all, so in terms of cravings/hunger, this is one of the best products I have used. Keep in mind though, I have not used the EC stack, nor yohimbine.. (they aren't really allowed here) so I can only draw this conclusion with regards to the other fatburners I've used, mainly stims.
I did take this product pre-workout, typically 2 caps, and experimented both before breakfast and 30mins pre-workout since I usually workout after breakfast. Overall, I cannot really say that my workouts were very much improved over what they normally would be. I did notice a little bit of extra sweating, but nothing to write home about. However, there were also no noticeable sides. I am really beginning to appreciate the advantage and usefulness of products which do not have caffeine in them. Makes life a lot easier to not be dependent on them.. heh
Taken throughout the day, I did not feel much of a thermo effect, but I don't think that was the intention of the product. However, despite a pretty few rough days in between, I generally observed that my mood was a little elevated in red acid Gen 2. Taken later in the day did not affect sleep at all, but I did feel a nice little surge in alertness and I felt compelled/motivated to do some extra evening workouts/cardio.
As for body comp, I have lost 2lbs over the course of the bottle and 1cm around the waist. Nothing dramatic, yet no complaints on my end, my recomp is going well. I have been getting comments here and there about me looking like I've put on a bit more muscle. Hams, quads, bis and calves are harder to poke at.. yes they get poked every now and again.. .... what else, lifts have either stayed the same, or improved, I have been particularly impressed with the increases in leg strength and chest presses. Cardio is fine and I have been getting a few extra sessions in because I have just 'felt like it'
Overall, I think for more dramatic results, red acid could be stacked with a stim, maybe another non-stim fat burner like thyrotabs, sesamin, or dcp. I have been using the bare minimums lately.. pretty must just red acid, some purple wraath and white flood on occassion. Anyway, for those following along for the product assessment, you will find this review useful, and and of course for those who have followed along, (just to hear my daily whinings), thanks a million, I appreciate it more than you guys know ..lurkers included... haha where are you all at? :P
Thanks CL and the homies for sending this to me, and to pu for making the banner and resurrecting it after it died so cheers!
