Lol, yeah right in the bag if I can remove the bag I'm carrying around my waist! So far it's just a smaller bag.

I-Vblech you may want to start looking for a new line of work, lol.
Took another day off, I'm beat and I didn't sleep well last night. If it was anything but legs I'd be there but I hate half-arsen legs, especially with a week off ahead of me.
Diet: High carb day 40/40/20, probably will hit around 3200 cals. Feeling a little flabby today, combination of being tired and eating more I'm sure.

sleep is crucial to your bodybuilding success. Ive saw numberous times where you missed out on sleep in some of your threads. YOU MUST GET AS CLOSE TO 8 HOURS OF SLEEP PER NIGHT or youll anabolic hormone profile will suffer. Dude ive gave up, parties, women, fun stuff for my sleep. Its a must. Sleep, Nutrition and Trainign are the biggest factors. You probally already know this but im here to assist.

I agree 100% and trust me, it's not by choice! I went to bed last night at 9pm, 12:30am and I'm still awake, I just have those nights! Next week will be much worse, I'm working 5:30pm to about 7:30am normally on this shift I only get 5-6hrs a night (day)! I've tried just about everything OTC for sleep but nothing works well for me, most of it just keeps me up. I just have to judge how I feel and like today stay home or else I end up getting hurt on a day I should not have gone to the gym in the first place.

Have you tried melatonin before? I work a rotating shift myself, and find myself using it pretty much all of the time. It's said that full time use can mess up your body's natural melatonin production, however with the rotating shift mine would be messed up anyway. I find that it helps me plan when I want to go to sleep, based on when I'm working the following day. 3mg melatonin+10 grams l-taurine puts me out most of the time, save for times when I utilize stimulants too close to bedtime.
For times when I have to switch over from night shift to day shift, I have a prescription sleep aid on hand to help me sleep. I've discovered after years of shift work that I'm much better off using sleep aides when necessary to get a decent sleep, than just hoping and waiting to fall asleep at a decent time.

Melatonin acually worked for a long time, I didn't take it every night but as needed, or anticipated. Dosage increases, time, etc have turned melatonin into a stim. When I take melatonin, I will be up for the next 8-12hours, it's strange but it does some weird stuff to me now and I itch all over too. USPlabs REMR3G doesn't seem to be working anymore either!

you need to lay off the strip clubs and the juicies over there in the ROK
man Id hate to have to play once a month ugh
i try melatonin ever so often as to not get dependent on it.
this week ive been ricking the cold fusion PM from legal gear. Nutraplanet had a great sale on it.
worst tasting **** ever, but each night ive taken it ive slept right thru without waking up my typical 10 times to look at the clock.

Long Day! low carb day 50/30/20 should be the result if all goes well at about 3000cals. Felt good and was busy all day, I didn't get to the gym until around 6pm and being a Friday it was nice and quit, so I made a little noise in there today!
LEGS (did I mention I love leg day?)
Light bands dbled from below-135x10,225x10, 315x3, 365x2, 405x5x2
No bands 405x8 (pause and explode)
Hammer extensions 200x6, 300x8x2
Cybex extension Light 10x2
Cybex leg curls ss w/ Db sldl
Cable crunches standing 10x3
Nice w/o not to killer but felt good, chest and tris tomorrow, then light back and bis Sun.

Hey Basso, you're too tall for squats. Replace with deadlifts and never squat again!! oh, but you want to be fat, thats ok then. lol.
I want to look nice and cover my legs up
07-21-2006 10:38 AM
LoL, that was my last squat w/o! does anyone have good deals on sweats? XXsmall please! There is a point were squats become very difficult, I was working with a guy last week (7'2") and squats are very akward for him, but definitely doable!

They've been doing it for years since they started back in oh what was it 98 or 99? Anyway it's worth checking out for a laugh.

I follow T-nation for Eric Cressey's articles but that is pretty much it. He is a PL'er and knows his stuff. He is also geared toward athletes so its a plus for me.
FYI, carb up day. Being glycogen depleated is getting to me and starting to effect my lifts, time to refill, my body says so.
07-21-2006 11:31 AM
There are a few guys that put up some decent articles on Tmag! I like hearing from Tate and the Westside crazies also!

Next month I'll get a little more Anal retentive about the food I'm taking in but I think this is a nice framework for me! Baby Steps! If I was 25 again I'd already be done ripped and ready, but them extra 15 yrs make it 15 times harder.

I hear you. I'm experimenting with these low carbs and it works but I can;t go more than 4-5 days with just veges and some oats after workout. So I am going to hit carbs hard for 3 days and go back to virtually none and keep it that way and see what results that yields. Sounds similar to what your doing. And If i was 25 again, I think I would be done too
07-21-2006 01:13 PM
Actually I'm doing a 3 day carb cycle High/Low/none and my Leg and back days hit the high days, Chest and Shoulders hit the low days and arms on the none days, it's a little confusing at first but it's very tolerable and appears to be very effective so far. 1 day no carbs is very, very easy especially when the next day is High carbs!

I won't be logging my meals until next weekend, this week is going to be so screwed up it will be to much. So my plan is just eat clean and keep the carbs on the low side throughout. I may do some band work at home just to move a little. My w/o went pretty well today, my legs were fatigued and it really effected my bench but other then that it went very well.
Doubled light bands from below: 225x8x3
Incline DB: 120x6,5,5
Double light band push ups: 12,10,8
Light band kick backs: 10x3
Tomorrow back/bis and I'm done for a week.

you wrote in my thread your sorry and you didnt mean no offense. no offense taking brother. I simply said that Ironman has some good info in it. as far as the nutrition article and certain exercises dont work for everyone. No offense taking here. for all i know you might be right about the ads i dont know, nor dont care i dont look at the ads ...im in it for the knowledge which i can apply hands on. anyways goodluck. btw just took a pic after i trained today if u wanna see..cheers

Some impressive numbers there Basso. We should start a competition against some of these young punks.
