    quick update. legs and back are shot from yesterday. hit the hot tub tonight to relax those muscles. i am officially off my stack so i will take a little break and then hop on Mass HGH and Anabeta for 8 weeks. i will TRY to take a 8 week break but we will see how long that lasts lol

    btw, anybody have IGF 2, HGHup, or Mass HGH they wanna trade?

    dont have time to chat right now, so ill just post my numbers then give my thoughts tonight. i saw some strength increases already which is awesome

    BB Bench - 235x6 245x4 255x2
    BB Incline - 185x6 205x4 225x2
    Flys - 3 sets 6,4,2

    BB Curl - 75x6 85x4 95x2
    Preacher single hand machine - 50x6 55x4 60x2
    Cable Curls - 3 sets 6,4,2

    so as you can see, when u compare this lift and last friday's lift, i have gotten stronger. my bench is up, BB curl is up, and preacher.


    4/20
    I woke up very very sore today. my chest is crushed right now.

    Hot tub is amazing for tight muscles. My only problem is that I get hot too fast and want to get out before they really loosen up.

    I'll post the comparisons tonight and will do that from now on so you guys can see any differences. Tomorrow starts the rep range week. Any tips on how to approach this?

    I can normally do 225x12 but those 4 second negatives kill but I'm at 235x6 with 4 second negs so that's huge improvement for one week I'd say!
