    Half joking.
    Do you known anyone who lost their home?
    Not yet, but then again I only know it was on that side of town and not who was affected yet. I guess that mean it wasn't anybody close!

    yeah that sounds like the Hayman fire. That was the largest fire in colorado per acreage and this one is the most structurally destructive. I've been up on Pikes Peak a few times. It's always cold up there, even in summer. Ever take the cog railway up?

    nice, I did the cog twice and then drove up once or twice. I might hike the trail this summer. Not sure yet. I need somebody motivating to go with to do that.

  4. I did back and chest today while training two friends. Made rest intervals way too long for what I'd like but it was good to help them out.


    Back:


    -Rack Pulls


    -Pendlay Rows


    -Straight Arm pushdowns


    Chest


    -Incline Bench Press, started running out of time so I did these rest-pause style


    -Cable Flyes, rest-pause again


    Not near as much as I wanted to do but I still got in several sets of each.

  5. Back and chest is such a rare combo for me but I remember I loved doing it.

  8. UPDATE: I haven't updated this log in awhile but I'm still hitting the gym! I focused on adding mass the last year and got up to 236 pounds at my heaviest. Unfortunatley, with every bulk of mine also comes some bodyfat too. This was no exception but I did keep it from getting out of hand. After a nasty flu and starting my contest prep diet for my next show, I am now sitting at 218 pounds. I really don't want to drop below 198. That way I will be at the very top of the light-heavies. I'd like to bulk up enough to stay in the heavies but that'll come in time. I'm shooting for a show next month since my bodyfat is relatively low. I have a back-up show of the following month (April) in case I need to push things back, and also so I don't rush it and risk losing too much muscle.


    -Today-

    Started with an hour of fasted cardio on the treadmill with BCAA's and EC just before. Then I had a protein shake, waited about 15 minutes and then went to work on my arms.

    -Preacher Curls
    supersetted with:
    -Tricep Extensions
    5 sets

    -Tricep Pressdowns (straight bar)
    supersetted with:
    -Cable Curls
    5 sets

    -One Arm DB Preacher Curls
    -Hammer Curls, last set 8x60 each
    -Pinwheel Curls, last set 6x70 each
    (cycled through those)
    supersetted with:
    -Behind the head DB Tricep Extensions
    I went up to 100 lbs here but it killed my elbow with the positioning so stayed a little lighter with higher reps instead.
    Lost count on how many sets we did here but I got a pretty good arm pump and Andy did a bunch of videos to help promote the Arnold Classic next month.

    Went and tanned afterwards. I'm still pasty white but at least I'm starting to see some color.

  9. in...
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  10. Also, I will be going to the Arnold Classic in a couple weeks for my first time. My wife will be competing in the amateur bikini division.


    My diet for the last few days has been only white fish, either tilapia or swai, and a green vegetable and protein shakes in between. Yeah, not the most exciting and certainly not palatable but it's working!

    What were you doing in the Philippines? Oh and balut is disgustingly foul and probably the nastiest looking food on earth. I do miss fresh fish right from the ocean though. I used to live in Guam and had fish and rice all the time, and spam too.

  13. Just got back from the gym. Again. I trained a friend of mine and then I did another 45 minutes of cardio on the elliptical. My legs aren't very happy with me.

    was there on my ship...got out and went back, the old gi bill funded my stay for the 1st few years, then ended up running a bar on magsaysay.

    balut is disgusting, but probably the highest protein food in the world-great for libido, i know i put that to the test, lol.

  15. Today I did fasted cardio in the morning. I took just leucine and EC prior. I forgot to put in any flavoring to mask the nasty leucine taste so I just choked it down. I did 65 minutes of LISS on the treadmill. However, in order to get my heart rate over 100 (which is quite difficult for me to do) I had to put the treadmill on a 9% incline at 3.0 MPH. Then I had a protein shake and began my chest workout.

    -Decline Bench Press
    41x135 (yes 41 )
    9x225
    2x315
    8x225
    3x275

    -Incline to flat DB presses
    This was a spur of the moment thing as we were doing incline presses, we decided to go down a notch each set all the way until the bench was flat and then use a lighter weight and work out way back up. Tried to keep rep ranges between 6-12.

    High incline
    100 lb DB's
    Down one notch to about a normal incline bench position
    100's (three sets here)
    Down one more notch to low incline
    100's
    Flat bench
    100's
    The 100's were getting extremely heavy at this point. We now switched to 60's
    Flat
    60 lb DB's each
    Up one notch on the bench
    60's, after this one we were pretty fatigued so we switched to 50's
    Up another notch
    50's
    Up to the high incline position
    50's

    Well that was new but it was good! 9 total sets

    That exhausted us pretty good so we then went to finish off on cables

    -Cable Flyes
    then straight to
    -Cable ab crunches
    during the fourth set while I was in the middle of my bent over cable flyes, my lower right ab felt like it popped out or seized up really intensely. It hurt pretty bad and I found my self leaning against the wall trying to hold it and make it relax. I think it's from my strict diet and increased training that made me more susceptible to that. After that I was done. We were just about finished anyways so not a big loss. It's sensitive and feels strained right now but it's not too bad anymore. I just need to give my abs a break since I took yesterday off but hit them the previous two days in a row.

    Diet today has been perfect. I have had nothing but protein shakes in water, BCAA's, lots of tilapia, and broccoli.

    I know, I thought so too! I just started it so that's not the problem. I took it yesterday right before I started my cardio and couldn't get it up and then today I decided to take it earlier so I took it at home before I took my kids to school and then on to the gym. Still couldn't get it over 105 ish. Never tried the nose stuff, just the basic primatene tabs.

    primatene???? dude, bronkaid is 10x better-but i think they had a recall on bronkaid, at least that is what the pharmacist told me???

    sudafed is what i tried in place of bronkaid this last time, it kicks ass!!!

    I know one is HCl and one is sulfate but they're supposed to be just about on par as far as effectiveness goes. Anecdotally I have no clue though because I haven't been able to find a single place in this entire city that sells Bronkaid. Only Primatene and its generic version.

    How much will they let you buy?
    I need to grab some, I'm done trying to fight the dirtiness I feel on clen.

  21. Started this morning with an hour of fasted (leucine/EC only) cardio. My legs are starting to feel a bit worn but I'll make them work for me anyways. Ate afterwards, took a 20 minute break, and then hit the weights.


    Back day today.


    -Assisted Pull-ups
    Started with higher reps and more assistance (weight) and then dropped it with each concurrent set, making it progressively more difficult.
    Several sets, dunno how many


    -Nautilus Plate Loaded Low Rows, I like the individual arm movement on this one
    2 plates
    4
    6
    8
    10
    12 plates (with versa gripps on this one)
    I'm the only one that did the last two sets at those weights, my training partners went down and did some more rep work but I wanted to push it a little today because I felt better and I love hitting my back as I think it's my best body part.


    -Close Parallel Grip Pull-Downs
    bunch


    -Barbell Shrugs
    135
    225
    315
    385
    225
    225 (behind the back)


    -Medium grip Lat pull-downs with a parallel grip, weird bar


    That was it for now. Probably go back again tonight for another round of cardio.

    like i said my pharmacist said there was a recall on bronkaid....it may not be back.


    as per my experience sudafed is a lot more effective than primatine. i hardly even feel anything from primatine!!!

    yeah but I don't think they sell it in this region because it's been this way since I first tried it years ago. I can always switch to clen!

    they don't sell sudafed where you live?

    Dunno, never tried it or asked for it. Don't even know what's in it. I assume it contains a form of ephedrine?
