    (Bulk) Day 3; 2-23-08


    Took 1 pill today, it was an off day.

    I won't review this on an off-day. Kinda pointless.

    I felt really sore from yesterday and think i am sick becuase I am achy. I have been taking natural herbs though so I am going to be getting better soon.

    (Bulk) Day 4: 2-24-08


    Off day again. No suprise. I feel 100% better and I am not sore which is suprising to me. I had no time to take the LR today but I'm not worried. I did however eat a lot of food today at a buffet. Luckily, it was lots of protein and FATS and not so many carbs.

    According to Fitday, I roughly had:

    Calories - ~2,900 (little lower, but I had about 4 meals today)
    P-295
    C-162 (not accurate measurement
    F-86.

    I ate TONS of eggs, bacon and deli sliced turkey. It was the bomb.

    I have been wanting to, but I do not want to plug in all my custom foods again like I did for fitday. I may begin using it instead of fitday, but fitday is just as easy and already taken care off.

    Do you use it by any chance?

    I wonder how important decline bench is...haven't done it in 2 weeks so I might have to get on that. I've also been doing abs only like 2 times a week lately but killing it.

    Well I have a lagging lower chest. My upper chest is somewhat developed buy I never work out my lower chest so it looks uneven. I need to start doing abs more often.

    Yeah I need to start throwing some decline bench in.. decline flies atleast. I couldn't imagine doing abs only once or twice a week, I don't feel my day is full-filled unless I worked my abs at the end of my workout.

    I can imagine not doing them..lol.

    I will be doing them 3 days a week starting on the 3rd. M, W, and F. I will do 2 exercises, with 10-15 reps, and they will be supersets for 3 Total sets with 30 sec. rest. Hopefully that will put them in gear. I need to learn more about the ab muscle. I dont work them nearly as much as I should.

    Doing Straight Arm Pull-Downs have really helped my arm strength. Finally got me over the 80mph hump. That movement is where most of the finish of your throw come from.

    Yea, or you can use the Lat pull Down machine. Another that works ok is DB Pull-Over. It doesn't hit the exact muscle but it stil gets workd. I'd do those on chest days.

    Prepping for my meet. Crazy crap.

    Took 1 LR, 1 hour before my workout. I feel that is my sweet spot. I dont know if I really want to bump the dosage up to 2
    pills Pre-WO. We shall see.

    Squat:
    225lbs x 5 (idk warmup)
    275lbs x 1
    325lbs x 2
    335lbs x 0 (1st was not low enough, 2nd rep i went to far down and failed)
    335 mis
    340 miss
    315lbs x 1

    Straddle Deadlift:
    135lbs x 10
    225lbs x 8
    365lbs x 3
    425lbs x 1

    455lbs x 1 (NEW PERSONAL RECORD)

    475lbs x 1 (Shatterd PERSONAL RECORD)

    then my knee went into pain..I'll be fine.

    sucked at benching...did lots of stretching.

    Leviathan Reloaded:
    10/10 for Everything. Fantastic Workout.

    I Just don't feel it works the chest well enough to be considered a "chest exercise". The only time your chest is actually doing work is at the top part of the rotation. What I tend to do at the end of my chest work-out is just grab 2 25 pound plates hold em together and bring them in and out(don't know how to describe good).
    Anyways, I think the Overhead actually works the lats better then the chest but correct me if I'm wrong.

    Gotcha, I was talking using it more of a lat/pec minor tie in exercise. One for baseball. Actually the pec minor is used most at the bottom, as the muscle is used to expand the ribcage (from what I learned in anatomy) If it really dose much for chest development i dont know and wouldn't do this exercise if I didn't play ball.

    Since I was doing chest monday and back friday. It would get hit twice a week.

    when you squat do you box squat cause i suggest doing box squats every other week and the inbetween weeks go on the leg press and go super wide pointing your toes out high reps in the 20 range and go heavy, i guarentee youll hit that 500lb deadlift within a month easy!

    No and I won't be powerlifting or deadlift until further notice.


    Yesterday after I pulled 475, I pulled a something in my knee. idk what. No more deadlifting or catching.

    Im still gonna squat though and I am going to replace the deadlift with powercleans on leg/back days.

    EDIT: I need to do more box squats though. I enjoyed them and did feel somewhat stronger.
    Thank you for that tip king. I bet if I never hurt myself last year, I could pull 500 by my birthday.

    Thanks for the support bro. I know I will be fine by Monday. To be honest, I really don't care about not deadlifting. I planned on taking 2 months off during my cut and not go heavy until next November. Im not going to be breaking state records in the 250lb weight class, so nobody besides close family really cares.

    I need to focus on being an athlete, not a strongman. Even though I cant catch, I can still play Outfield.

    Sounds like an MCL or medial meniscus sprain. Be careful not exacerbate it, particularly on squats.

    I need to research about this now. I want to be safe at all costs.

    Im taking the next week off, so I will see how I feel. Then on the 10th I begin cutting and doing high reps lower weight. Or, I might just 'deload'. Im not 10% sure.

    EDIT: 1,000 POSTS!!!!

    thats sweet. lol

    I have had MCL/medial meniscus issues for a few years now (which resulted from squats). It doesn't sound too bad, but just be cautious; nothing sucks more than injury.
