well today was back day.
i really wasn't feeling these today and i'm a big advocate of listening to my body and what it wants to do and what it doesn't so i just did some light sets and called it quits
315x4 with straps
Close grip T-bar rows
3 45 plates x 8 reps
3 45 plates + a 25 x 3 sets of 10 reps
wide grip lat pull downs
100x mpr ( think it was about 20) for one set
reverse grip pull downs
one arm dumb bell rows
2 sets of 15 on each arm with 75's.
i had a massive pump in my fore arms today.
it was weird but nice. i feel like they're finally getting stronger.
i was a marshmellow head this morning. in my stupid half asleep state i decided to use 2 scoops of shock which i think attributed to my bad deads cuz my heart was beating like crazy and i was extremely light headed and kept fading in and out..
i really had to slow my tempo down to keep from blacking out
(as previously stated, i'm very stim sensitive)

i get nice pumps in my forearms on back day as well.
I knowticed you did about 10 sets for back day where as im doing 15-18. Do you think im over training?

I feel it's a bit over kill if i hit the same thing twice, while overkill at times can be a good thing when done rarely (such as my rows today) too much of it can be a bad thing.
however, i don't have a degree in this stuff yet, and the person you really should pm about it would be volcom..

Hey Natty, go check out Norwegian's log, he just started one up. He's a fellow Texan Collegiate and he's 254lbs with solid abs, so you can learn a lot from him as well. He's a good friend of mine here, he's smart and dedicated beyond belief. Give it a look if you get the chance, he's a good friend to have here.

alright the workout:today was arms. i don't like having just an arms day, but it gives another day in there for recovery so i don't have to take two off days. i think i'm going to turn my other off day into a go to the gym and stretch day haha.
I weighed in today at 169...i'll wait a few days and see if that's level or goes up/down before i make it official...
standing b.b. curl
115 lbs (b.b.+ 35's) 4 sets of 8
75 lbs 3
standing d.b. curl
50 x 8 x 1 this was extremely easy so i raised it
60 x 8 x 3 the last 4 reps on the last set had some body english
45 x max reps (body english free)x 1 i think i did 11 but i wasn't really counting
standing tri press 100 lbs (we don't have any higher weights at my gym ) x 4 sets of 12
skull crushers 90 lbs x 3 sets of 12
tri kickbacks 30 lbs x 4 sets of 12
I don't really like all the high rep work right now, so i'm going to try to raise the weight up next week.
I'm heading out for birthday lunch, then i'm going to go apply at the hotel. hope everyone's having a fantastic day in the gym

Hope you get the job bro! and enjoy your birthday food! btw are you running anything other than the pre workout right now? your weight seems to be flying up

Happy birthday mang, mine's in 9 days; good luck with the hotel job and keep on rockin'!
20 was a good year...

universal shock therapy
as well as regular vitamins
I think most of my weight is flying up because I'm still just getting back into this. I'm still 14 days off of being back in this for 2 months. and as I've mentioned a few times...I seem to have good genetics. (my dad was a body builder and played full back at a&m)

Natty T's Bodybuilding Log
I want to thank everyone for supporting me through this. I'm sorry it didn't work out. I hate to let ya'll down, but cheer up cuz hopefully i'll be on stage in a 'nanner hammock' soon enough...
