    I took yesterday as a day of excess as it was the first day of my vacation. Pancakes, pizza, it was bad. I got a run in last night but I felt like I was carrying around 10lb of sh*t in my gut...which probably isn't far from the truth.

    I'm torn between which pack to pickup from Ranger Joe. Decisions, decisions.

    A few extra dollars is well worth it, trust me.

    Does the pack come with straps or do I need the rucksack frame? I sound like such a rookie. Looks like my boys are using ILBEs instead of MOLLEs but I practice is practice. I'm not spending 600 bucks on something I'll be receiving in a few months anyway. Also final question Fin, am I to be running with this pack loaded up (45lb) or should I just work on walking in my boots with this sucker?

    I saw a guy wearing a Marines PT Grey and it made me upset. He had a gut hanging down. Had be been closer to the OSS or Recruiters I'm sure a Gunny woulda (or should anyway,) run out there and give him some lip.

    Well I hit chest today and I'll update later with my diet as well. It was a successful workout.

  7. The straps come with the model that I suggested; however, many buy the frame because they have weak backs... do you have a weak back?
    No running, just walking at a constant pace for miles, and miles, and miles... you get the idea. I was actually in the main store this morning and looked over the model; a few upgrades than the model I have, so it has evolved to better fit the person donning it.

    And don't worry about the questions, without asking you appear to know it all, and those people get called out and embarrassed on an hourly clock. So be humble and learn, that's why you're going there. Once you complete it, you can start to lead, but you have to follow first.

    I'll be the first person to tell you that I don't know much of anything. What you and others have told me so far have been invaluable for my preparation. I can't thank you enough.

    Narrative:
    Was hoping to help with a demo this afternoon at the gym, however the other party didn't show. Oh well, since I was out I bought a new pair of shoes and some socks. My shoes were getting pretty ratty. New socks are always a plus too, 3 pairs of moisture wicking socks (for running) and 3 pairs of regular socks.

    Diet could have been better today, too much whey and not enough whole foods. Tomorrow is running. Gonna try and hit the 2.7mi early in the day and come back for some PIT later in the afternoon/evening. You folks better hold me accountable and give me sh*t if I update tomorrow and tell you I didn't do both. I know Iron will keep me honest.

    I'm liking it. I took it about a year ago (1 bottle,) and took advantage of the BOGO sale NP had on it a while ago. Apparently 2 bottles/months is supposed to yield better results.

    Recovery Time (aside from Legs,) is noticeably lower than what it typically is. The constant running and leg workouts sometimes gives me DOMS from hell in my quads/hams. Other than the legs, everything else is responding great to AE.

    RUN: Treadmill, 24 minutes (2.5 miles)

    Narrative:
    Not happy about running on a treadmill instead of outside, but cardio is better than no cardio. Looking back I should have thrown in a few sets of shrugs. Oh well, they'll get their's soon enough.

    If you're serious about OCS look to your school's ROTC program. If you join ROTC I think you can do 2 6-week courses at Quantico over the summers of your Junior and Senior year so that you're ready for your commission as soon as your graduate, instead of the 10-weeker that I"m looking forward to.

    Yeah, the diet tracking kinda went away as I've been kinda slacking on plugging numbers. I will say though that this morning I stepped on the scale at 179lb. Hoorah.

    RUN!: 2 miles treadmill

    Narrative:

    Got off my lazy butt today. I've been stretched thin due to work. Was supposed to have today off but that didn't happen. So I summoned up some rage at the end of my shift to go slam some f*cking weights around. I hadn't done deads in awhile so I was do. I had the crazy idea of lifting heavy then running. Yeah, I'm going to hate myself tomorrow morning. I can already tell I'm gonna have DOMS from hell. I'll probably have 5g of glutamine or something before bed tonight.

    If my back is up for it, I'm scheduled for back day tomorrow. If not, I'll have to do chest to give the old guy a lift after deads. I swear, DL can really screw up your lifting schedule

    Bent over BB Row: 45x10, 65x10, 95x10, 115x10, 115x10, 45x10

    DB Low Row: 20x10, 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 60x10, 70x10, 80x8, 30x10(negatives)

    Pullups: 7, 5, 4

    Narrative:

    I can't believe I was capable of doing back today. I thought for sure that yesterday's lift would have forced me to do chest instead to give my back time to recover. Today was total lat destruction, as is evident by the failure pullups at the end of the lift. 4. 4 freaking pullups. I think I defined depletion today. Mission accomplished.

    Nah, I've actually been working full time in retail, and only recently purchased a new laptop (and took the time to actually get on it) so of course I hit up AM! Hopefully I can spend a little more time on here now, and get back into the old routines.

    Anyways, you're looking great man. I see you've really stuck it out and it's been paying off. Glad to see a Ninja still rippin' it up!

    RUN!: 2 Miles

    Narrative:
    Yes, this took about 2 hours. Yes, I had some WMS and BCAAs about 75 minutes into the workout. This is what happens when you work 8 days in a row and your brain shuts down for 2 days; you have to play catchup.

    I had a 6oz chicken breast when I got home. I know some carbs would help with recovery but we're doing lasagna for dinner tonight so I'll be getting a lot of carbs from that. Thankfull I have some AP for a little peace of mind with those evening carbs.
