    absolutely my friend.
    tough for my mentality to rest, but wise indeed.
    resting the elbows..still getting in some leg work tomorrow.

  3. i am very happy with the last 5 weeks.
    (other than the elbow deterioration that is ahahaa)

    will attempt to work around it it for awhile..lower body day #1 this morning.

    quick feedback on the first week of TRS -- have i said how much i LOOOOOVE this stuff??
    awesome combination of compounds, exquisite quality.
    this time around, i figured i'd try something different..rubbed some sustain alpha on my genitals as directions indicate you can..
    just a lil bit. and - i'll be damned if it doesn't provide a lil boost to the machine! (pun fully erected errrr i mean, distended no wait not right either -- how bout intended)
    TCF is great as well, just makes you feel gooooood.
    seriously - this might just be my fav group of products from Primordial. hyooge thumbs up!

  4. lil food pic, since it's been awhile.
    before i got to munching on it, was 10oz lean (96%) beef, chopped up with onions and shrooms, can't see the bleu cheese crumbles anymore cuz they already melted.
    paired with the usual 5oz salad w/ tomato & red pepper (balsamic vinaigrette/olive oil dressing this night), and couple carmel rice cakes for dessert. (low carb meal, 670cals total)



    i twinged my back bending over for a runaway crouton....


    SUN 10/7
    rest

    MON 10/8
    lower body, scheme #2

  5. oh, forgot to mention..
    i've settled in to a finite postWO nutrition..altho i like switching things up, this is sweet in its simplicity.
    i strive to keep macros ~80-90g carbs/40-50g protein, minimum fat for this timing.
    been rolling with :

    1 can Sierra Mist Natural,
    shake of 2 TBS brown rice syrup + 2 scoops isolate



    that sierra mist is crisp and refreshing, cheap too..natural ingredients, real sugar.

    felt good, used 115s thruout my 6 sets on incline DB bench..i think lugging them things up and down myself is more tiresome than the actual reps themselves..
    oughtta make for some beefy forearms if done regularly for an extended period of time, LOL.

    only downside is, my elbows been bothering me a bit lately....
    I always feel the same way lugging around big dumbbells. Your luck u have 115s. My gym makes me jump from 110 to 120 which sucks.

    and i have the opposite problem - i have 125s, but no 120s.



    moving leg day to tomorrow, back is still a lil tight from saturday.
    weight @199.9 upon rising.
    my metabolism is goofy right now, gonna need to increase cals slightly again.
    pic of arm after no upper-body work in what seems like forever (5-6 days i think lol)


  8. stocked up on almond butter and brown rice syrup today, and found this new lil MaraNatha item.

    welcome, old friend.
    good to have you here.


    lower body, scheme #2 -- with a lil twist.
    back feeling fresh again, but i wanted an addtl day of rest to ensure healing.
    so, did some walking DB lunges in place of the deadlifts, and broke the 4-rep scheme with these, instead doing @8 steps per leg since i haven't done them in awhile (kept the squats @6x4)..felt pretty good.

    elbow is feeling better too, but not quite all the way back yet. still feels funny when i awake in the morning..
    better heal up! Month #2 in the program is looming, and ima need dem elbows at full strength!
    (ooooo clean & presses coming..haven't done in a very long time..)

  15. training today: none, rest

    interesting meals i been having lately.
    last night for supper, i had:
    5oz lean beef
    3oz black forest ham
    3oz roast beef
    1/2 cup jasmine rice (Matt Porter inspired the jasmine rice..yum love the stuff)
    625cals

    <4500cals i put down yesterday -- and weight dint change one bit>


    for breakfast today, was:
    5oz lean beef
    1 cup frosted mini-wheats + 6oz almond milk
    then, the shake: 1 scoop isolate + 1/2 cup cottage cheese + 1/4 cup oats, in 10oz of water.
    nice lil 650 cal meal there, delicious and nutritious and well-balanced.

    oh...and dem walking DB lunges yesterday -- they tore me up!
    (in a good way)

  16. Have you ever had Basmatti rice? - I pretty much eat only beef as my meat source and I'll mix it up with Basmatti. I love the stuff. - I throw in taco seasoning, salsa, and fat-free sour cream.

    It looks like mush, but it's delicious.

    as for beef - you know i am right there with ya.

    and breakfast.
    and lunch.....

  21. well guys - decided to roll out some some upper body work this day, kick lower body back to FRI, and start setting up for month #2 in the program.
    no DB tho, will stick with BB to ease in.
    i'm ready..been kinda stir-crazy w/o the upper body action.

    and..it was on.
    after waking in a foul mood cuz i stayed up late to watch the DET-OAK game, just to see my Tigers wrap the series up..led the whole game, up 3-1 in the 9th only to watch freakin closer (?) valverde blow it in less than 5min ... had some fuel for the early morn workout, and a good one it was.

    very basic, did some incline BB bench alternated with cable pulldowns (pronated), 6 sets working pyramid up in weights/down in reps. started at 225x12 on the incline BB, just feeling things out, ended at 325x4 -- elbow felt solid thruout! no issues at all.
    moved to standing military presses, did 5 straight sets @135x8, again just working back into things, dint want to push.
    ended with some direct ab work (almost forgot what this was like been so long lol)..no arm movements this day.

    just a very nice day in the weight room, very pleased..nice to have teh chest a bit swole again.

  22. Ugh....that's all I have to say about....,you know what I'm talking about.

    Snag, you only use whey isolate protein?

    yes, i do..and - yes, i do (pretty much anyway).
    i'm not worried about fast-digesting protein when i'm eating every 2-2.5hrs bro.

    I'm shopping around some protein ideas (low carb of course ;-)) probably going to end up with isolate. Have you used truenutrition's isolate?

    i have not. looks to be a solid choice tho.

    I give them a thumbs up. - Are there quite a few of these "make your own" shops now? I remember there were only a couple popular ones for a while. I always used ProteinCo/ATW.

    Ugh, I shutter at protein costs these days. I bought a bag at Sam's like a year ago. That's been the extent of my whey intake.

  27. Nice rehab workout, Snag. - I've been there before, easing into things but still having a great session. It's a combination of knowing that things are getting better, and that you pushed yourself to what your body told you to do. Makes for a nice leap forward.

  28. thanks IC, yes you nailed it pretty aptly.
    had no intention of going quite that heavy for bench, but everything was feeling good and things were quite light in the early going.
    my bench has always been the strongest of my lifts, proportionately speaking, so it was easy to push myself a lil bit on these..
    by the time i got to shoulders and utilizing stability, figured i'd better back off -- even tho i wanted to toss on some more weight.
    still quite pleased with the whole process and again you nail - nice points to build off from here out.

    today, lower body day scheme #3.
    no issues with the back, everything felt good this morning.
    the plan is to hit upper body in some fashion tomorrow, take SUN off, and begin MON with the second month in the program.

    weight still hovering ~200 -- even tho i have not dipped below 4k cals in a few days (went up to 4750 day before yesterday!)
    i'm quite at a loss to explain this..maybe i'm due for a dirty cal day..

  29. Have you ever had the California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas? - Perfect for a somewhat-dirty, high-cal day. Jamaican Jerk and BBQ Chicken are my favorites! - I believe it's about 45g of protein per pie, and around 90g carbohydrates. - I tend to eat them after my 5x3 and 5x5 workouts.

    Just a suggestion.

    What was your highest bench most recently? - I apologize if you've already posted your lifting stats.

    I need some serious work on my bench! Unlike you, Bench has always been my weakest. Whenever someone asks me what I bench, I tend to say "Wrong question." and hope to deflect them to "How much do you squat?"

    I think the biggest problem is that I rarely have a training partner. I can push myself on Squat or DL regardless, but that's not the case with bench.

  30. I want a dirty cal day.

    But it ain't because I'm not gaining, haha
