    Depends on you really. Did they pack it with gauze? Dry sockets are the worst and I wouldn't want to do anything to bring those on. I had them when I got wisdoms pulled.

    They initially packed it and then had me change it an hour later. Haven't had any in there for the last day.

    I had dry socket during BCT when they pulled it. Wasn't really a good time.

    Yep, whatever you gotta do to prevent dry sockets, I'd do it. You can also give some light cardio a try to get the heartrate going. If that doesn't cause bleeding, push a little more. If you don't start bleeding, you should be good to hook.

    When I had my wisdom teeth pulled I went to the gym the next day. It just is difficult to take in enough cals and protein because I could only have liquids. If you only had one pulled you can probably be alright. Just don't push it if you are feeling pain or fatigued.

    Started the Cube for Strongman cycle today, also started the beta test of Finaflex Stimul8.

    Explosive Squats / D1W1

    Pre: 1 Scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Gator + MBCAA+

    Warm-up: Foam Roll ITB/Add., LAX Ball Glute, Banded GM MMx15, LBBSx45x15, 95x10, 135x5

    LBBS: 200x2x10
    http://youtu.be/NZy-hmG6e4Y
    http://youtu.be/Yvz13RbIJlg
    http://youtu.be/FG_YwcuW6DI
    http://youtu.be/bmbcAGhgztA
    http://youtu.be/XNGC13-76k0

    Notes: Some of these were good, some not so good. As I would focus on some things, I would lose some of the things I was doing well. Lost depth on one of the sets (the 9th) might have been a little shallow on a couple of other ones. Had a couple that I had a bit of chest dip, so I tried to make sure I fixed that, it wasn't major but it was a little more than I would have liked. Had a bit of a butt wink as well, I think to a certain extent that's inevitable, but not when just going to parallel. Might have to begin stretching my hip flexors more aggressively before squatting and see if that helps at all. Along with the preventative measures I'm already implementing of course.

    Walking Lunges: BWx15x3 (per leg)

    Front Squat: 155x12x2, 175x12

    Calf Raises: 180x20, 140x20x2 Notes: These were way harder than I expected them to be....

    Banded GM: MMx50 Notes: Decided to implement some more PC work on squat day. My PC needs work.....

    So yeah, first session was successful. Lots of good, a good bit of bad as well, but it would be hard to progress if I didn't have anything to fix.

    So I got home from work pretty late today, so I ended up hitting the field pretty late as well. The stimul8 definitely affected my sleeping last night, I was awake for a little while lol.

    Took half a scoop of stimul8 and headed to the field for some agility stuff. The energy was good, and it hit me about 30 minutes after I dosed it (maybe 40), had some noticeable focus, and I was definitely sweating more.....but I can't say I was a fan of it for this particular instance. I felt short of breath almost the whole time, which is definitely an effect of the stimulants when doing sprints and similar training. Still got work done, but my heart was racing a little too fast and it was hard to catch a deep breath.

    So yeah, probably not the greatest preworkout for HIIT....

    This is what I done did anyway.

    Agility / D2W2

    Pre: 1/2 scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Gator + MBCAA

    Warmup: Dynamic Track warmup (strides, hip stretches, butt kicks, high knees, carioca, etc.)

    Ladder Drills x 2 each 10yd sprint at end of ladder, set at 45 deg. angle
    -Both feet per rung
    -1 foot per rung
    -side-in-in-out
    -bunny hop

    Cone Drills:
    -4 x Pro Agility drill
    -2 x T-Drill
    -2 x Nebraska drill


    Had some core work planned after this, but it started raining on me, and I hate being rained on. So I called it a day with that.

    Yes, didn't put it up....but I ate sh!t on my 2nd T-Drill.


    Was too high on the first turn so I made sure to get real low for the 2nd and my ankle rolled out from under me lol. I tucked and rolled with it so I was able to smoothly get up and finish, but it was pretty embarrassing.

    Yeah, my ankle just completely gave out lol.

    I looked for some in my area, and there aren't any that I saw coming up in the near future.

    I'm probably gonna sign up for the first one I can lol.

    D3W1 / Cube For Strongman / Repetition OHP

    Pre: 1 Scoop Stimul8
    Intra: Barely anything, but gatorade + MBCAA

    Shoulder was feeling a little tricky today so I took my time with the warm-up.

    Warm-up: Prone Rows w/ MM, Light Tricep Ext w/ MM, Ext. Rot x 2 w/ MM, Band Pull Apart w/ MM, 'Y' Pull Apart w/ MM, Scapula Pull-up, OHP x 45 x 10, LAX Ball Pec Minor/Bicep/Upper Back/Trap, OHP x 95 x 5, LAX Ball Upper Back/Trap/Lat

    Strict Standing Press: 125 x 7 (dang, wanted 8+)

    DB Bench: 65 x 8 (whoops, too light), 75 x 8 x 2

    Dips: +45 x 10 x 2, BW x 20

    Cat Back Pulldown: AVG Onyx x 15 x 2

    Band Pushdown: MM x 10 x 2 (Standing tall, spread hands at bottom) w/ 2 sec pause, AVG x 8, AVG x 9 (slight bend at waist, hands together) w/ 2 sec pause

    DB Lateral Raise: 20 x 12 x 3

    Notes: Focus was good, energy was constant. Had a good workout, didn't quite hit what I would have liked on the OHP, but the assistance was solid. Decided to add cat backs today, just to keep rowing volume up. I think I'm going to do a few sets of rows on Squat day, and then do the prescribed rowing on Deadlift day. Never can have too much upper back strength. Got a good pump and contraction with the second portion of the tri pushdowns, I personally prefer them, but will continue doing two of each for now. The MM is a little too light (even holding way at the top) and the AVG is way too heavy for the first type. Might need to invest in another band lol.

    Also, some dietary changes that may come into play soon.

    I have been considering implementing a GDA (something I used to do regularly to manage stomach discomfort and bloat from big meals) and keep the majority of my carbs peri-workout. I've spoken with DistilledWater about it before and have been considering it, I just keep my own personal supplementation to a minimum when I log supplements, and recently I've been pretty busy with that. I expect to have a decent amount of carbs upon rising, and then a minimal carbs lunch, small carb meal an hour or so before training, and then a large carb meal an hour or so afterwards (which may be dinner) and possibly a ultra low carb meal not long before bed.

    This may or may not start for another week or so while I continue to study up, but it is very likely going to happen soon.

    Hmm, something similar to gut health (have no idea what's in it, just see a lot of anecdote on here) or just a digestive complex of some sort?

    I'm not speaking on behalf of Rodja obviously, but I just tried some random digestive enzymes I found on NP, and now Guthealth, which is great too.

    Gut Health is a probiotic, which is different. I use the NOW Super Enzymes.

    I've seen a lot of people use enzymes on here, I'm gonna have to look into it.

    It makes a big difference?

    Or any mixture of those things.

    Couldn't get my form right for the longest time on the DLs today. Wasn't sitting back enough for most of the sets (finally figured it out on the last set).

    Hips were rising early (again, until my final set) and shoulders were a little in front of the bar (until last set).

    Once I got it all together, it just ended up being a good looking, hard ass pull. According to my buddy Mike (older guy, 40's, PLing for longer than I've been living), but my phone ran out of SD card space and couldn't record (Had to delete old vids ) so I wasn't able to see it.

    Sorry buddy, I don't ever cook them that much! However, they did get a little more charred than I would have liked, stayed nice and red on the inside, but I definitely over did it with the charcoal today. Oh well, still tasted good. They were eaten with Mashed Taters, Homemade Mac N' Cheese, and Buttered sweet corn, along with the staple Strawberry Milk.

    Anyway, was training ME Deads today. The strength just wasn't there, was hoping to get around 350 for my double, but.....it just wasn't happening. Not with good form anyway. Got a few sets on video, some were good, some not so good. I watched them between sets to try to fix the issues I noticed, the 315s were bad, 275 not as much. My set up on 345 looked better (to me atleast) but the hips rose a little (a lot) more than I would have liked at the beginning so I dumped it and lowered weight. 335s were good (according to the experience eye of Mike, but I didn't get to see them myself), but they definitely FELT right. Sat back more at the beginning, shins vertical, and pulling up and back. But, they were HARD. Way harder than the 335x5 I did a few weeks ago. I noted a lot of the issues that I saw in my video descriptions.

    Disclaimer: If you don't DL about 600# Raw, I will not listen to your form critiques. I can get better critiques elsewhere so keep your opinions/experience to yourself. (Obviously a joke, some will understand)

    Yesterday I pulled a 24 hour guard duty, around 2200 we played a little football (in ACUs of course). It was only 2 on 2 and it probably took about 1.5-2 hours. Was fun, but definitely had an effect on what I did today. Got home around 1030 and went to sleep around 1115. Alarm woke me up at 1500 and I started my day, ate some pasta at 1530 or so. Left for the gym at 1730 with a protein shake and some honey before leaving.

    Pre: 1 Scoop Stimul8 (as I pulled into the gym)
    Intra: Gatorade + MBCAA mix

    Warm-Up: Band Resist HF Stretch, Foam Roll ITB/Adductor/Hammies, Sumo DL x 45 x 5, x 95 x 2, x 135 x 2, Con. DL: 135 x 2, 185 x 2, 225 x 2

    Con. DL: 275 x 2, 315 x 2 (+belt), 345x0 (bail), 335 x 2 (+belt)

    275: http://youtu.be/mv7_A76_mAM
    315: http://youtu.be/5GDi-DOO2gc
    345: http://youtu.be/l4AC-2pD7ZE

    Note: In my warmup I did some sumo DL, this is not for any particular reason, I only did them as I was teaching my wife sumo. I expect she will ultimately be better, and more comfortable sumo pulling. She already squats narrow, so it won't be too much for the hips (hopefully). And if you are wondering, I have no intentions of sumo pulling, not because I don't think I will be good with that technique (I actually expect that it would be stronger), but because I squat wide and don't want to stress my hips too that degree because I don't believe I have the time to take care of them with that much strain. So for now, and possibly indefinitely, I will pull conventional.

    45 Deg. Hyper: BWx20x3
    Trap Bar Shrugs: 185x15, 205x15, 225x15
    DB Rows (strict): 50x10, 55x10, 60x10
    Face Pulls: 100x12, 100x15, 100x12+3
    BB Curl: 45 x 15

    Done.

    The hypers felt good, I had a ton of energy and my focus was on point. But, the strength just wasn't there for the DL's today. The assistance was better, but it definitely wasn't my best day in the gym (understandably so). Overall, I am not displeased with the session. I am annoyed that I was having so many issues with the technique today, I don't usually have that much of a problem, and I can't understand why I did today. Whatever, there is always next time.

    Still ended up with 335x2, which is a decent set for me. Overall, I am feeling pretty good. Ate a nice big meal and I'm feeling better. Weight was down to 172.6 when I woke up this morning, and I am certain that I was moderately dehydrated when I stepped into the gym this morning. Was sweating a lot today and yesterday.

    Also, today was my wife's first attempt with sumo pulling. I think she did alright for her first time, her feet are not as wide as I would like. But I don't know if she is flexible enough to bring them wider, I'm trying to cue her to keep her chest taller and pull the slack out of the bar before initiating her pull. Her set after this looked better than this one, and was about 10# heavier. Her chest dips slightly as she starts the pull (or that's what it looked like to me when I recorded it), but she says that it is more comfortable on her lower back pulling this way. I've been trying to convince her to try it for the last few months, and she finally decided to give it a go and much prefers it. She isn't much weaker on these than she is with Con. DL so I expect her to be much stronger on these in the long run.
