    Background:
    A little less than two years ago, I looked like this. After my back long-time back injuries finally told me it was time to “tap out,” I made the transition from mma training to strictly bench specialized power lifting. I still ate the same despite the large reduction in training time. So I got fat…



    I was unhappy with all the weight I put on so I started up on the Anabolic Diet. This is me as of 2 weeks ago. I’ve gotten a little leaner since then. But nevertheless, I think this is still a good reference point:




    I’ve had success with 2 week long PSMF diets in the past. Sure, it was unpleasant, but the results were well worth the suffering. So now, since I’m a glutton for punishment, I’ve decided to do a full-bore Velocity Diet: 28 days + 2 weeks of transition.

    I recently had to take 9 months off from the gym due to an injury. Because of this, my training is also a high priority. Therefore, I have modified the original V-diet template to accommodate a more rigorous training program.

    I will also be utilizing anavar as well as Primordial Performance’s 1-T transdermal to help keep my strength progressing as if I weren’t dieting so intensely. This will be my first cycle.

    Let’s Begin:
    I just finished a two day carb up (usually only do a 1 day). As I haven’t done so in awhile and won’t be doing so for a long time, I just ate whatever I wanted. It was nice, but not nearly as satisfying as I had imagined.

    Stats:
    Weight: 220 lbs
    Body fat: 20ish?
    Waste: 37 in. (at biggest point)
    Arms (flexed, unpumped) :
    L: 16 3/4 in.
    R: 16 7/8 in.

    Goals:
    1. Significantly lower my bodyfat percentage
    2. Improve strength at a similar rate as before I was dieting
    3. Gain size on my arms (hey, a man can dream can't he)

    Training:
    Modified 5-3-1 (bench only): twice weekly
    I’ve been following the 5-3-1 program for about 7 months now and am continuing to make progress. Have been using my 90% max and I add 5 lbs every month. My max is probably somewhere around 345 lbs based on what I am doing in training and what I have maxed out at in the past. I don’t really care to test it as I am not going to be in a comp anytime soon (if ever). On a side note, my shoulders haven’t felt this good in a long time.

    In addition to the once a week 5-3-1 workouts, I have added an extra day of bench assistance. I recently added in 6 sets of speed bench and have seen an improvement in my bench numbers. Since I cannot squat or deadlift due to my back, I also train my legs on this day. I have reduced the volume for my leg training due to the recent addition of a plyometric program.

    Plyometrics: twice weekly
    I have been following Kelley Bagget’s Novice program from his Vertical Jump Bible for the past two weeks. I will continue to do so in the weeks ahead.

    Yoga: 3-4 times a week
    I hate yoga. But I still try to go to classes as often as I can. It is good for my body and as an added bonus, there are plenty of hot chicks in my classes. I have also found it has helped improve my concentration as well as my pain tolerance.

    Diet: modified V-diet

    Rest/Yoga only days: 1690 cals, 272g protein, 52g fat, 27g carbs, 20g fiber

    Plyo/Yoga days: 1960 cals, 304g protein, 64g fat, 41g carbs, 30g fiber

    Lifting days: 2192 cals, 279g protein, 31g fat, 160g carbs, 24g fiber

    Gears:
    Var @ 60mg for 6 weeks
    1-T trans @ 4 pumps daily for 4 weeks
    Proviron @ 50 mg for 6 weeks

    Supps:
    Cycle Support: twice daily (started two weeks ago)
    Celery seed extract: as needed
    Phenbut: as needed
    Bacopa: 150 mg around bed time as needed
    BCAA’s: as needed
    Creatine Gluconate: 3g on training days (spread out into 3 doses)
    Beta Alanine: 4g daily (spread into 2 doses)
    ALCAR: 2g twice a day
    PLCAR: 1g twice a day
    Thermogum: as needed

    Pre-wo:
    P-slin- 300 mg (with oatmeal)
    Geranamine: 20-30mg

    Intra-workout:
    200mg P-slin
    50g waxy maize (or the equivalent in Gatorade when I run out)

    Day 1: It begins!

    Stats:
    (see above)

    Diet:
    1960 cals
    304g protein
    64g fat
    41g carbs
    30g dietary fiber

    Notes: Cravings weren't too bad nor was hunger. I got pretty hypoglycemic at times. Going to have to get used to that.

    Training

    Plyometrics:
    Slalom jump: 3 x 50 (jumps in both directs)
    Star Jumps: 4 x 8 (pause before jump)
    Power Skipping: 4 x 30 yrds
    Side to Side box jump: 3 x 6
    1-leg step-up jump: 3 x 8 (each leg)
    Low squat ankle jump: 3 x 30

    Yoga:
    1 hour class; mild difficulty

    Notes: I definately noticed a increase in performance during the plyos. I'm not sure whether it was the anabolics or not, but nevertheless it was nice. I was forced to take last Friday off do to some suprise work (I hate when my boss does this to me), so that may have played a role as well.

    Gears:
    Var: 60mg
    Proviron: 50mg
    1-T trans: 4 pumps

    Notes:
    The first thing I noticed was the euphoria from the 1-T. I was quite nice. It eventually faded only to return when I was at the gym. Thankfully, no aggression as I usually have a problem with this while using things like Prime, Form, icariin, etc.

    Supps:
    Cycle Support: 2 scoops
    Beta Alanine: 4g spread into 2 doses
    ALCAR: 2g twice a day
    PLCAR: 1g twice a day
    BCAA's: 15g + 5g Leucine (consumed pre and intra workout)
    Bacopa: 150mg before bed

    Notes:
    The BCAA's were a life saver as were the ALCAR/PLCAR combo. The ALCAR worked immediately, but it to a little long to feel the effects of the PLCAR.

    Mood: Euphoric at times, cranky at others (due to lack of cals)

    Libido: I didn't notice too many physical effects in terms of libido, but my pyschological desire was ridiculous. During Yoga class one of the chicks that I like and who happened to be in front of me, wasn't wearing undies. OMFG, why?!?

    Injuries: Rolled my ankle pretty bad on Sunday. Didn't get in the way of my training though. I have had a torn/sprained hamstring for the past 6 months. Just been ignoring in for the most part and will only notice it during yoga. Today, I found the adhesion/trigger point that is causing the problem. Upon applying pressure to it, I am able to stretch without pain. Will do some work on it in the days ahead; hopefully get it healed up.

    Energy: Had plenty of energy at the gym, until the end of yoga class; then I crashed. The rest of the day wasn't too bad, had a few bouts of lethargy, but it was expected.

    Random:
    I was cramping a lot today despite drinking over a gal of fluids. Will increase water intake tomorrow.

    I had aheadache in the morning. Thought it might be either a bp headache or from my sinuses. I will try some celery seed extract tomorrow if I get it again. If it doesn't go away after a high does, my sinuses are the likely culprit.

    Day 2:

    Stats:
    Weight: 214lbs (-6)

    Diet:
    1690 cals
    272g protein
    52g fat
    27g carbs
    20g fiber

    Notes: Today was my one of my low calorie days and I definately felt the difference. A lot more lethargy and a lot more hungy. Had some bad cravings but they were pretty easy to manage. Looking foward to my solid meal tomorrow. Will have either oatmeal or a baked sweet potatoe.

    Training:
    Rest

    Gears:
    Var: 60mg
    Proviron: 50mg
    1-T trans: 4 pumps

    Notes: Homemade liquid orals taste bad.

    Supps:
    Cycle Support: 2 scoops
    Beta Alanine: 4g spread into 2 doses
    ALCAR: 2g twice a day
    PLCAR: 1g twice a day
    Celery Seed extract: 150mg
    Bacopa: 150mg before bed
    Phenibut: 200mg before bed

    Notes: Thinking about lowering the ALCAR to 1g twice a day. Am going to had this "Thyroid Energy" sh*t that I have lying around. It has about a gram of l-tryosine per serving. Should give me more energy but might also effect the bp.

    Mood: more jittery than usual (ALCAR?), melancholy towards the end of the day with a few harsh mood swings. Could be the AAS, the low calories, or both.

    Libido: maybe a little more than usual, hard to tell

    Energy: quite low today, but that's to be expected given the lack of cals

    Random:
    Had a headache for most of the day. Started taking zertec and some extra celery seed extract to cover all bases. Hopefully, I can figure out what's causing it. I heard the too much ALCAR can cause a headache. Couldn't find any reliable info on it tho. Going to lower the dose anyways because of jitters, maybe it will help.

    Day 3:

    Stats:
    214 lbs

    Diet:
    2192 cals
    279g protein
    31g fat
    160g carbs
    24g fiber

    Training: Legs & Bench Assistence

    Speed Bench:
    215 x 3 x 3 (pause on chest w/explosive concentric)
    215 x 3 x 3 (ballisitic)

    Notes:
    Ballistic felt okay, but the paused ones didn't have enough jiuce in them. Gonna drop it to 185 lbs next week instead of 195 like the ballistics.

    Bottom-Up Pistol Squats:superset with BB Curls
    bw x 10 (each leg)
    bw x 10
    bw x 10
    bw+5lbs x 10

    Notes:
    I leaned foward on the way up instead of straightening my back as usual. Felt a deep burn in the lower part of the quads. Normally, I mostly feel it in my upper quads/hip-flexors which are already overdeveloped from my heavy squating days.

    BB Curls:
    65lbs x 15
    75lbs x 10
    75lbs x 8
    75lbs x 7

    1 + 1/4 preacher curls:
    22.5 lbs x 8
    22.5 lbs x 7 +1 forced rep
    22.5 lbs x 7

    Single Leg Press: (3 sec negative)
    225 x 10
    245 x 10
    255 x 10
    255 x 8-10? (forgot to record it in journal)

    Pull-ups:
    bw x 5
    bw + 22.5 x 5
    bw + 22.5 x 5

    Notes:
    I struggled on these, even though I did 27.5 x 5 last week. Maybe it was all the bicep work or maybe just over-reaching. Either way, I'm switching it to bw only rep work next week.

    Plate Curl Tri-set: regular curls/hammer curls/wrist kick-backs
    25 lbs x 10 / 10 / 10
    25 lbs x 8 / 8 / 8
    25 lbs x 8 / 8 / 8

    Gears:
    Var: 60mg
    Proviron: 50mg
    1-T trans: 4 pumps

    Notes: Noticing increased muscle fullness and vascularity is starting to pop. Nothing crazy yet; about on par with formestane. Pumps were sick in the gym, especially the biceps. Aggression was higher today after dosing the proviron

    Supps:
    Cycle Support: 2 scoops
    Beta Alanine: 4g spread into 2 doses
    ALCAR: 1g twice a day
    PLCAR: 1g twice a day
    Now Thyroid Energy: 2 caps twice a day
    Creatine Gluconate: 1g, 3 times before workout
    Celery Seed extract: 450mg
    Bacopa: 150mg before bed
    Phenibut: 200mg before bed

    Pre-wo:
    P-slin- 300 mg (with oatmeal)

    Intra-workout:
    200mg P-slin
    50g waxy maize

    Notes: Headaches were bp related and were alleviated by the high dose celery seed extract (300mg before wo, 150mg after ALCAR). Going to cut out the Thyroid Energy as the bp increase is not worth it. Will try half a piece of Thermogum tomorrow morning.

    Mood: Much crankier today. Euphoria was there. Neither were overwhelming.

    Energy: Lethargic between meals, feel better after eating. Completely spent after my workout.

    Libido: Wow.

    Random:
    I'm holding a lot of water especially around my flanks. Neverending thrist; drank 2 gals today.

    Pre-workout oatmeal wasn't nearly as good as I had imagined. Still tasty. Got full 3/4 of the way through the bowl. Normally, I wolf it down and want more. I might try to brave a 500g sweet potatoe next solid meal, but I fear I will not be able to get it all down.

    There were a lot of f*ckers at the gym today working with the personal trainers. Normally, the time I go is dead. Had to switch the order of my routine b/c of the equipment I wanted to use was always occupied. Had to do a lot of waiting too. Not the end of the world but a little frustrating. Will maybe go earlier next time.

    Also, there was this one chinese dude, who on every rep, found it necessary to grunt like a mentally handicaped gorilla. They weren't even manly grunts. Dude, that's 135lbs, you don't need to make that noise.

    Day 4

    Stats:
    213 (-1)

    Notes:
    Waist and arms still the same. Water retention especially on the "luv handle" region is somewhat irritating. I got a good recommendation for an herbal AI that's found in Chinese Medicine. I'll try to grab some this weekend.

    Not that anyone would ever want to know such a thing, but I had my first proper dump in like 3 days. I'm gonna laugh if I lost a lot of weight tomorrow.

    Diet:
    1690 cals
    272g protein
    52g fat
    27g carbs
    20g fiber

    Notes:
    Second low cal day...it sucked. Hunger was definately there as were the cravings. Both were managable tho.

    Training:

    Flow Yoga:
    1 hr class; difficulty - retarded

    Notes:
    I did not think that they could make yoga suck any more than it already does; I was apparently very wrong.

    Gears:
    Var: 60mg
    Proviron: 50mg
    1-T trans: 4 pumps

    Notes:
    I swear my nuts are shrinking but I doubt they actually are at this point.

    Supps:
    1/2 piece Thermogum
    Cycle Support: 2 scoops
    Beta Alanine: 4g spread into 2 doses
    ALCAR: 1g twice a day
    PLCAR: 1g twice a day
    BCAA's: 10g with 5g leucine b4 yoga
    Celery Seed Extract: 150mg
    Gluccomon (sp?): a little over 3g

    Mood: Euphoria early in the day. Bad anxiety later. Mostly due to stress at work, thermogum, caffiene (diet coke), and ALCAR.

    Energy: Not too lethargic during the day but was dead after yoga.

    Libido: proviron is kicking in big time

    Random:
    The gf is coming tomorrow. Proviron ftw!

    Day 5:

    Stats:
    211 (-2)

    Diet:
    1960 cals
    304g protein
    64g fat
    41g carbs
    30g dietary fiber

    Notes:
    I remember more and more each day, exactly how much this diet sucks. Only 23 days of suffering to go. Lolz.

    Training:

    Plyometrics:
    Slalom jump: 3 x 50
    Star Jumps: 4 x 8 (pause before jump)
    Power Skipping: 4 x 30 yrds
    Side to Side box jump: 3 x 6
    1-leg step-up jump: 3 x 8 (each leg)
    Low squat ankle jump: 3 x 30

    Notes:
    Was really tired for this. I was able to push myself thru it but I couldn't get the same power from my legs as I could on Monday. Probably the two day carb up prior to Monday's workout had something to do with this.

    Gears
    Var: 60mg
    Proviron: 50mg
    1-T trans: 4 pumps

    Notes:
    Aggression up but still mild. Btw, 4 pumps of 1-T is a lot of sh*t to smear on yourself.

    Supps:
    1/2 piece Thermogum
    Cycle Support: 2 scoops
    Beta Alanine: 4g spread into 2 doses
    ALCAR: 1g twice a day
    PLCAR: 1g twice a day
    BCAA's: 15g with 5g leucine b4/during plyos
    Celery Seed Extract: 300mg
    Glucomannan: a little over 3g <--------good for appetite suppression btw

    Notes:
    WTF happened to my stim tolerance.

    Mood: general malaise

    Energy: low

    Libido: decent. gf should be here in about 1/2 hr. i will probably have to bang her which would be a good thing if I wasn't exhausted. Hey, but once she gets here and all those fun neurochemicals are released, I'm sure I'll change my tune.

    Just as an opinion - I find it confusing when you record your weight changes as day-to-day rather than from the starting value. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but it tripped me out for a minute.

    Keep up the good work dude! 3 weeks to go!

    Cool man, that's good to know. I think total vs. daily weight loss might be easier to follow.


    A day behind on the log; been spending time with the gf. With post up day 6 and 7 this evening.

    Day 6

    Stats:
    211 lbs

    Diet:
    1756 cals
    224g protein
    24g fat
    161g carbs
    24g fiber

    Notes:
    Shopping with the gf took longer than expected (who would have guessed that, haha), so I missed one of my shakes. Going to make up the calories tomorrow instead.

    I had a sweet potatoe as my pre-workout meal. Again it was not as satisfying as I had hoped.

    Training: Bench 5-3-1

    Bench:
    125 x 5
    155 x 5
    185 x 5
    215 x 3
    249 x 3
    279 x 4

    Notes: Still making progress. Diet and "supplement" program a success so far.

    Chins:
    bw x 5
    + 6.6lbs x 5
    + 11lbs x 5
    + 22lbs x 5
    + 33lbs x 5

    Notes: 5kg more than last week, but I'm down like 4kg so I don't think it's a PR.

    Standing db press: 55lbs x 10
    x 9
    x 8

    Notes: Strength went down on these big time. Last time, I got 15 reps on the first set. Second and third sets were about the same, but I had to use a lot more leg drive this time around.

    I wish I could try these more. My numbers suck. Used to be able to do the 90's. Unfortunately they f*ck up my shoulders something serious; only can use them infrequently.

    Injuries: Right shoulder is feeling loose and clicking a lot. I've torn the labrum on it before so I gotta be careful. The supraspinatus is impinged, inflammed, or something of the sorts. It hurts when I do the diagnostic test that the docs use. Should be fine once I stop doing the shoulder press next training cycle. For good measure, gonna add lying trap raises this Wednesday.

    Random:
    My girlfriend didn't know what steroids were so I gave her a mini lecture. Even busted out a clip of Bigger Stronger Faster. She also didn't know what sex hormones; guess they don't teach that kind of sh*t in schools in China.

    52g fat
    27g carbs
    20g fiber

    Training:

    Bacopa: 150 mg pre-bed

    Mood: With cravings and hunger all day, it's hard to be happy. Having a gf is helpful tho. The last time I did a v-diet, it was after a break-up. But I think that helped too though.

    Energy: low

    Libido: Increased interest in girls after proviron; minimal desire to have sex.

    Random: These low calorie days are killing me. According to the calendar there are only 8 left. I have a left-over bottle of hoodia lying around and have enough to dose a gram on each of these remaining days. Combine with a crap-load of glucomannan and it should provide some decent appetite suppression.

    Really looking foward to my sweet tater tomorrow as well as the workout that follows it. My wrist has been hurting the last couple days and I finally got it healed up. Just in time.

    Day 10

    Stats:
    211 lbs

    Notes: I am really starting to notice the changes in my body; especially in the gym. I am considering adding more cardio or something, but don't want to trade a lower bodyweight for decreased performance on my lifts.

    Diet:
    2049 cals
    273g protein
    160g carbs
    22g fat

    Notes: Sweet tater = incredible. I asked for a "jin" (500g) but what only got 427g instead. Had to add 13g of table sugar to up the carb content.

    Training: Legs / Bench Assistence
    Speed bench:
    w/pause- 185 x 3 x 3
    ballistic- 195 x 3 x 3

    Superset 1:
    bottom up pistol squats:
    bw x 10
    +5 x 10
    +10 x 10
    +15 x 8 <-----tweaked my knee on this set

    bb curl:
    75 x 10
    85 x 6
    85 x 6
    95 x 8 <---- suprised me; had like 5 mins rest before it

    Superset 2:
    Single leg leg-press: (3-4 sec negative)
    225 x 10
    245 x 10
    265 x 10
    315 x 10 <--- more like 2-2.5 sec neg, ha ha

    Notes: If I go too heavy on these it hurts my back. Maybe with the new form it will be ok. We'll see...

    Concentration curls:
    22.5 x 15
    27.5 x 10
    27.5 x 8

    Notes: A 25lbs db would have been nice. Everything is in kg here.

    Pull-ups: 50 total

    Notes: I supersetted these with the exercises below. 5 sets of 10 it was not...lolz.

    decline key press:
    55 x 10
    66 x 10
    66 x 8

    Notes: I felt like I needed to do some more tricep work. Been having trouble keeping my elbows tucked during my heavier sets on bench. Should have enough time to recover, but I'll if it helps or hurts for sure on Saturday. First time I did these btw, felt great.

    Calf raises: (3 sec neg)
    440 lbs x 10
    x 10
    x 10

    1g creatine gluconate

    Intra-workout:
    200mg P-slin
    50g waxy maize
    2g beta alanine

    Mood: positive

    Energy: medium

    Libido: up after the "vitamin p"

    Injuries: Tweaked my knee during pistols. It hurt someting fierce; still finished the set tho, My right supraspinatis is F*CKED UP. Two more workouts with shoulder press, then I'm switching to something more shoulder friendly (floor-press methinks).

    Cut down the dose of my anti-e (phellodendrone) and been taking some herbal anti-inflammatory sh*t. Also been rubbing this crazy topical medicine my martial arts instructor gave me. Seems to be helping.

    Random:
    Had an insane amount of energy in the gym. Also, when I did a little posing afterwards in the mirror, I was very impressed with how lean I was looking. Today definately made the past 9 days worth it for me. Only 18 more to go; keep charging...

    Random: Today sucked more than usual. Hunger and lethargy.

    I had a weird thought today. I was thnking about having a cheat meal at pizza hut when I am done dieting. It is a fancy resturant in these parts... Anyways, the first thought that crossed my mind was "I don't want to eat it because I will get fat." What a total mind-f*ck; never would have guessed that thought would ever pop into my head.

    Btw, I'm adding the phellodendrone back because this sub-q water retention is driving me crazy.

    Chin ups:
    6.6 x 5
    11 x 5

    Went on a date with a girl I met at the bar like a month or so ago. She was much cuter than I remember. Doesn't speak any english so I got to practice my chinese. I'm pretty sure she is a nut-job tho; just got that vibe from her. Probably shouldn't put my pen1s in this one.

    Mood: Roid rage! I got pretty pissed off when this f*cktard personal trainer tried to tell me that is was wrong to arch my back on the bench press. Dude, you barely weigh a 150 and I was stronger than you when I was 14. He also once told my gf that chinese and westerners have different bodies so I shouldn't train her. He is clearly an idiot. His english name is Jungle, btw.

    Energy: lethargy

    Libido: not really

    Random: Will give a two week report tomorrow. Have my most recent batch of gym pics. Happy with the progress so far.

    TWO WEEK UPDATE:

    Stats:
    209lbs ------->a loss of 11lbs
    waiste (love-handles): 36.5 -----> -0.5 in

    *Notes: Still making progress in the gym. So far everything is a success.

    Pics:





    *Notes: My abs didn't show up in the first pic like I had hoped they would. The second pic shows the least improvement. I'm a little bummed about losing the mass on my back, but back-fat will do that to ya.

    So disaster has struck. It seems that the container that was holding my liquid var was somehow leaking...****!!!!

    I am unsure if only the liquid was lost or there was anavar powder lost with it. I only have 18 days left, instead of 28. So I could be dosing upwards of 93mg a day if only the liquid was lost. I thankfully have more powder but I am pissed off none the less.

    Libido: I realized that I only nutted like once this month. And that include when my girl was visiting. Ha ha, I haven't abstained this long since like 3rd grade.

    Random: Have a deep ache in my legs which sucks. Don't know what it is; it's different from DOMS. I'm pretty pissed that I'm gaining weight so I'm gonna cut the cals on my plyo/yoga days. The bowels have been backed up a bit. Got some chinese herb that is supposed to clear that bad-boy out. Again, another update that I'm sure you didn't want to know.

    Thanks for the encouragement. Only 10 days left til the transition.

    According to the original program, there aren't any carb-ups. I think there are more overall daily carbs and a carb drink is used pre-workout. Also, I think there is supposed to be one or two "healthy solid meals" in there.

    I modified the original program to suit my training needs. Made it low carb / higher fat during my non-weight training days with high carbs around my workouts. I might have been able to lose more fat without doing this, but I see this as a welcomed trade off for maintaining my forward progress in the weight room.

    It's a dull ache in the general leg area; not at a localized. When I was a kid I used to get em. We called it "achy legs."

    Dull generalized pain throughout the leg that persists? Are you having any flexibility issues, decreased strength, or anything like a 'pump' going on? And how's your water intake?

    Probably the plyos. They are quite hard on the body. This is also my week of "over-reaching" in Bagget's rountine. Next week the volume is scaled back. If it continues to be a problem, I'll add in some light, reclining cycling for active rest.

    2016 cals
    227g protein
    35g fat
    186g carbs
    22g fiber

    *Notes- I have two serving of waxy maize left which I am saving for next week. Had to use gatorade instead. Definately noticed the difference. It took longer to kick in which made me feel like **** during the beginning of my workout. Also looked more bloated which I doubt had anything to do with the extra 22g carbs. Btw, where I live, liquid measuring cups don't exist...

    Training:Modded 5-3-1 Bench- Deload

    Bench:
    125 x 5

    Weighted Chins:

    22 x 5
    33 x 5
    44 x 5 (PR)

    *Notes:- Tweaked my shoulder on the first or second set (can't remember) by trying to be too explosive before I was warmed up. Should have thrown in sme bw reps to get the blood flowing. Btw, I am blown away by the weight. My arms are 6'3" so I suck at chins/pull-ups. Think I'm gonna switch to reps with a decent weight before I f^ck up my shoulders.

    Standing db shoulder press:
    55 x 15
    55 x 13
    55 x 19

    Intra-workout:
    200 mg p-slin
    gatorade 1.2L = 72g carbs
    2g of B.A.

    Energy: Low. Ate a lot off stims (caffiene + nicotine).

    Mood: a little down and a little irritable; not too bad. I wonder if these are signs of shut-down. I have to eat anti-depressants b/c of my bad brain chemistry so I know I am particulary sensitive to neurochemical changes in my dome. I think next cycle will use a HRT dose of test. If nothing else it will help with gains.

    Random: When I control myself so strictly with diet, I find my ability to resist sneaking a cigarete is pretty low. Been smoking on and off for like 4-5 hrs. I don't smoke daily anymore but I am still "addicted."

    I love what it does for my mood but I hate been nicotine's bitch. The last couple days been having a cig...I think yesterday, I had two.

    I try to only smoke at the bar and unless I'm drunk, I don't particularly like he taste of cigs (cept for menthol and cloves). So I've only been having like 1/4 of a cig before I can't handle anymore.

    It is normal for me to get extra cravings during low cals...I need my dopamine goddammit! Well anyways, I'm out of good cigs so I'll be able to control myself a little better. Not gonna buy any for awhile...at least I'll try to.

    60-90?mg var
    50mg prov

    Random: The girl that I like at the gym gave me more attention today so I returned the favor. I eventually pulled her number. It is unfortunate I already have a gf; this chick is really hot. I think my gf's body is a little better tho.

    Things are different in China, so I wouldn't be able to just bang her. You can only get one-night stands with older chicks and very rarely, with one of the hookers at the bar, but only if she is drunk and horny enough. Btw, if you have to clean a lot of vomit off your floor, you more or less "paid" for that sex.
