thats a solid leg workout natty, those lunges will deplete you if you do them too early... leg workouts are definitively my favorite workout days since those are my biggest lifts, if your back pumps persist look in to getting some bulk taurine it really does help, best of luck and keep pushing hard!

And the amount of brotherhood and respect in the sport is something to be desired in other sports. You could have just gotten done bashing a guy till he couldn't remember where he was and he would come to you after the fight and congratulate you.
To each their own though, however being a bodybuilder and into MMA would be extremely hard. MMA builds a very "athletic" physique

I love MMA, but I can see why your wife would be worried about it BeBig, I love the sport and love the fitness but can see the risk the only serious injury ive ever taken was getting kicked in the side of the head hard and smacking into a wall, my concentration sucked for about 3 days after which was kinda worrying lol. Im sure if you ask around some of the other MMA guys will have had far worse though. I would say just be careful and join a sensible school and you should be fine tbh..

Natty, get some taurine for them pumps. 5 g pre and 5 g post. Does wonders. I work the hell outta my legs on leg day and no matter how many bananas i took i got crazy pumps. Hope that works brother. Lookin good on those lunges. I did 100's on each side the other day and nearly passed out.

notes: I think it's time to find a new routine. I'm not feeling fulfilled and it's leading to me doing more and more exercises.
315x 2 sets of 6
365x 1 set of 4
4 plates, 4 sets of 8
wide grip pull downs
Reverse grip pulldowns
150x 3 sets of 10
shrugs on the...well i don't know what it's called but it looks like a little box made for shruging. I think it ways about 60 pounds.
two 45's + a 25 on each side- 3 sets of 12
running the rack shrugs
95x8all the way down to 20x8 with no breaks.
again the back pump was horrible. i had to stop and sit down several times just while walking. I thought i was going to cry while doing the shrugs it was so bad. I'm ordering taurine today.

i'm also going to make note:
i got up over 275 last week, I think with all the cake I was eating (my mom made one, my grandparents made one, and my job gave me one) and i weighed myself today powo, and was back down to 262.

i want to lose fat and gain muscle.
the ultimate goal though is to compete. me and pr decided it would be best right now if i lost some weight. mostly fat. I'm sitting at 262 right now, and I'd like to get down to about 230 or lower then see where I should go from there.
so i guess i'm in a cutting phase?

i think i'm shooting for 12 reps...i don't really like to go much higher than that.
I'm also considering the use of super sets. the idea, and the goal, is to stay anabolic while losing fat. I'll be very happy though if i can atleast maintain my strength.
i've never really tried to lose weight before...I'm not sure what to expect.

it through off my plans...tomorrow was going to be my off day, but the gym's closed so now it'll be today. the easter bunny still stops by my house, even though i'm 20 and an only child. (mom's bored i guess....) so i have a bucket of chocolate covered peanuts, a new pair of lifting straps, and a new shaker.
