    On top of that, the mofo wants me to add BANDS to that to get stronger and faster! If it works, I'll love the guy forever, if it doesn't, I'll be angry haha

    Cookies & cream UMP is best on the market, IMO. Muscle Provider is good too, both flavors. I'm not a fan of choc UMP, to be honest. Never tried their choc Mass Maker either but LOVE vanilla (which I have to drink for my carb up :-D)

    I know they came out with a new protein, I haven't had that. Now that I have a well paying job, they're the only company I buy protein from unless a local shoppe is having a sale bc their taste is THAT good. Since prep started I've gone through about 20lbs of cookies and cream UMP and have 2 unopened tubs, lol

  3. Do your guys heels come off the ground when going a$$ to grass, if I sit back it kills my hips. This is a new problem and I don't like it, input a board under my heels

    Yes to bands. leaving your ego outside the gym = bigger gains in the long run. I believe you are fond of saying its a marathon not a sprint

    I know brother but god damn...it hurts like a b1tch!

    Distilled, I get so much pain on my abductors due to lack of Flexibility, I had lacked a lot of it and have been developing it by stretching and doing proper form. Sit on the heels, and remember to drive and PUSH with the hip, like literally move your hips forward, I learned how to do that with "Bridges" aka "Hip Thrusts" on the ground with a barbell.

    Even if it is a marathon...I just want to be doing something that PROVES results, and ATG damn!! seems like it is doing progress so far, but haha my ego and my hips hurt!!

    I had a similar problem where my weight would shift forward to my toes and strain my knees. Solution was low box squats and 2.5lb plates under my toes for a few weeks. How wide is your stance? maybe you need to open up a bit more

  10. I tore my hamstring in feb 2010, I think I lost A LOT of flexibility and that sounds logical.

    When I go ATG, it's about shoulder width. If its parallel for power, I'm pretty wide with toes out.

  11. I've been moving for the past 3 hrs, moving to a new apt with my mom. I'm freaking gas'd!!!! My legs are friggen sore too and lucky me I get to move up stairs too.

    If I had any bit of glycogen in my muscles, it'll be gone by today. I think I'm going to take another scoop of micro jacked, I need a second wind. Maybe a nap too, mmmm.

  14. Another one of my buddy's is on the HIIT train with solid results. Plus, with eating the carbs tonight I figure it'll help re-eatablish ketosis

    Not to mention, I see a lot of you guys doing it with nice results. May through it in 2-3days/week.

  15. I'm sore AF today, my entire body! I'm not very bloated though, pretty full looking. Probably bc I'm dehydrated from moving in 100degree weather.

    Excited my DermaTherm target will be here 2maro! Weight is staying strong at around 180 so I'm feeling good. Excited to smash on carbs next Saturday too! Since I had some this weekend, I'll do a depletion workout 1st thing Saturday morning, fasted with some BCAA's.

    I'll have about 50gr WMS 1st thing post workout. Starting my experiment of my reaction to carb sources.

    Then I'll have, probably 500gr carbs for the day.

    Huge pump, felt strong. Still holding back a little but my joints are feeling good. Excited to start lifting heavy next week.

    Changed diet a little, no more shakes. 15gr BCAA post workout and I'll eat about 1 hr post. I'll go to an intra shake next week so this is temporary.

    Had 8oz sirloin cooked in 2TBS olive Oil and 4 cups of broccoli. Wow, it was delicious. Hunger is subsiding, it's still pretty bad in the morning but after I start eating I'm feeling pretty good. I also added more greens today so that may be it, 4 cups spinach with meal 1.

    Pretty stoked bc I sit between 179-186 right now. So far recomp is going well. I figure I'll weigh in Saturday morning before my depletion workout. I'm also going to try out SPP Glycomex post workout, 1 scoop. If it goes well I may try that intra next week.
