    I'll probably throw on suit bottoms in a few weeks, but not sure on the shirt and full gear.

  3. 5/4 Upper

    Close Grip Bench (+200# chain)
    135x5x2
    155x2
    135x5

    2-Board Close Grip (+120# chain)
    135x10x3

    Pullups
    BWx6x5

    Tate Press/Pullaparts (mini)
    40x12x4/15x4

    Band External Rotations (mini)
    15x3

    We got a TX Power Bar and used it for the first time on this day. We were all in a "do something stupid" mood and decided to use all the chain we had on us despite the fact that none of us are strong enough raw benchers for 200# of chain. Nobody got hurt and we're far out enough that now is the time to do something stupid. I'm still hitting a lot of volume on shoulder/RC work and will keep this up for at least until the end of June.

  4. The "stupid" days are always the most fun.

  6. Agreed, and often it's trying something dumb that opens your eyes to new methods or you surprise yourself by your own strength.

  7. It felt weird to use that much chain, but it was a nice change of pace from my normal accumulation stuff.

    5/5 Lower

    Oly-style Squat
    225x5x2
    275x5x2
    315x3

    Cambered GM
    135x15x3

    Unilateral LP/DB Shrugs
    360x15/80x15
    450x12/80x15
    540x10/90x10

    I'm starting to find my groove on Oly-style squats and it's definitely something I'll keep in the rotation to spare my hips. I might use some loose briefs on them for overload, but will keep the same stance and depth. They slightly irritate my right knee, but nothing major and it's probably just a sign of weakness in the area. It looks like I will be bringing back gear the week of 6/3 and I might be switching some stuff around, but nothing definitive yet.

  8. Chucks or oly shoes for the oly squats?

    Lilly's shirted template is calling for ME floor press with 3 chains...I'll see how that goes.

  10. 5/6 Upper

    OHP
    135x8
    145x6
    145x5
    135x9

    Kroc Rows
    145x19 PR!

    Incline DB Press
    70x10x2
    80x7

    Rolling Ex/Side Laterals
    35x10x3/35x12x3

    Facepulls/DB Curls/Pullaparts (mini)
    100x10/45x8/15
    100x10/45x7/15

    I'm really hitting my stride and getting everything back to full bore. I finally set a new PR on Kroc's after setting my mind that I would do so on this day. One thing I have really noticed is the weakness in my right biceps and I have to fix that as I know it is a partial culprit to my impingement.

  11. 145x19 holy crap. Nicely done.

    I hope you had a Cinco de Mayo beer, considering you're in Texas...

  13. Man, your rows are ridiculous. I am loving the Kroc rows myself.

  14. I took a look at the calendar last night and drew up a tentative schedule for the other stuff. I'm not using tren for this round. It took too much out of my cardio and I didn't get much out of it in strength terms. I was debating on using NPP again, but I'm not really ready to commit to ED pinning again for awhile. The verdict is to bring back 1T cyp with lose dose E to stave off lethargy and keep libido up. Depending on how that all goes, I might throw in some dbol the final month before the meet.

    I've also decided that 198 is off the table for now. I'm on the road too much right now to have a stringent fat loss diet and would rather focus on recomping and filling out my frame to be a bigger 220. If I can get to a solid 230, I'll be stoked, but its not as important as making sure I stay healthy and keep my leverages.

  15. I was I could do that fun stuff..

    You're already a solid dude. You'd be a monster at a big lean 220.

    I figured I'll take advantage if it while I can. The main reason I'm staying at 220 is I'm unsure how my gear would fit me if I dropped to 198. My shirt would most likely be fine, but my briefs would be too big, which is what you need to have be the tightest piece of gear.

    Ah that makes sense. Luckily for me I guess, my gear is forcing me to lean out some. Not a bad thing, my clothes will fit again.

    I hear ya on that though. Would hate to drop 500+ bucks just because you lost 20lbs.

  18. What does D-bol bring to the table if you don't mind me asking?
    Always open light. Itís not what you open with, itís what you finish with. Louie Simmons

  21. Dbol is the granddaddy of old-school orals. Been around and kicking ass for decades.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    There's a reason it's an extremely popular steroid: it works.

    Word. I waited way too long to try it out. It's not a sexy pick, but it freaking works.

    I'm going to mini-rant, so please excuse...I personally think it's a f'n awesome pick. People under-educate yet manage to over-think AAS, and it drives me INSANE. Stacking multiple methylated orals, multiple estered test (no, not a fan, pick one and go), and looking for a "better" way. It's all been done. Pick a setup, use it, and f'n TRAIN.

    I love dbol/Anadrol + a long estered test for damn near anybody doing a cycle. It'll get you big, get you strong, and there's virtually no way to f it up.

    Sorry, dude. Love your log, love your gear choice, and I'll delete that if you like.

    I have no problem with the rant. While I enjoy dabbling in different combinations, I realize that the most important part is still to train your ass off. If people spent 1/10 the time that they do in the anabolics section looking at training, they'd actually get somewhere instead of treading water.

  25. I agree totally with the previous post^^^ If they would spend as much time and effort on the right diet, training, and recovery as they do on all the supps/gear they would be so ahead of the game.
