Hey guys!! I got back last week! Ad I been getting back finally. helping my uncle now rebuilding his bathroom so I've been the all around handyman lol.
As far as lifting goes... OMFG, I hate and love being here. I wanna look good cause the gym is full of guys that have the huge arms etc, and the lean ripped dudes. While in Japan I was the biggest and leanest.... being like 12% BF at 210lbs... now I am just a blahlah lol...
What to do
Got my shoes!
Rogue weight lifting shoes!! Suggestions?RecoverBro ELITE

Mobility work is great. I have been staying flexible this time around. I have be sprinting lately and today I felt insane. Like when I was running sub 12 100s and 4.4 40s lol

so bros. It's been a long and hard journey back home. Mainly because I HATE not having a job. And I don't like having to shuffle priorities.
Anyway, I have also changed my training quite a bit and though my body comp has not changed at all, I am unhappy with it. Have my third interview today and it looks hopeful so with luck I will be employed sometime very soon. Hope you guys are all doing great and I will be here quite a bit more

Goodluck Matt good to see you! Well chat soon.

All right guys! Got hired. So I'm back on the supplement/training plan!
Hmm.. I'm thinking C20, modern BCAA (It's actually MUCH better than the last batch I had lol), Prime, and dexaprine v2.
Thinking I"m gonna do a pyramid type deal with some high intensity jerks every other day. Hmm.. Gotta get cracking. 5x5 always been good but the gym I go to now only has 2 racks, and like 2 benches... chances are very low that I will be able to hit them whenever I want....

Sweet man congrats. Sounds sweet. Get working hard!Originally Posted by mattrag

so getting back into pyramid type training here's what I did~
Close grip cable row
190x8 > 145x10
Tricep pull downs
Hammer strength low back row
Hammer strength high back row
Over Head tricept extention
Pretty rough day actually. Felt light headed and ready to puke.... haha. Higher volume is rough.
09-20-2012, 05:47 PM
Note to self. Don't take c20 pre wo on an empty stomach.
Incline db press
Decline cable x-over
10mins of cardio
Diet looks to be something like....
For around 2500 cals.
Should drop me quite a bit as I have been closing 4000 cals a day and maintaining weight.
Might hit the gym again tonight for cardio and legs.

Hey big guy! Good work lately.
10-27-2012, 01:08 PM
Hey bros. just to give an update. Did the DTP trainer for mass and I must say, it's pretty nuts. I'm probably going to adapt some type of high volume training for now. And incorporate some HIIT. Full program later.
