Forgot to mention (since I made the post before getting dressed for work), my waist is down a belt notch So this is good news. (I have really bad confidence issues, and this really helps ease that).

funny you should say that: my name is Bob. I'm anything but trendy though.

there's always those in the gym wearing their own freaky trend of clothing

Well I sent my entry form in the mail today. Now I need to think of a song to pose to for the night show. Any ideas feel free to chime in. (Last year, I posed to "F**king in the Bushes" by Oasis, which my GF (at the time) was skilled enough to edit out the lyrics.)

I think I'm gonna replace Incline DB press with the Cybex Incline Press machine, and the weighted Dips with the hammer Strength Dip Machine. It's taking up too much energy to carry the DB's over to the bench, and by the time I get the weights up to start lifting, I'm already exhausted. I think the reason why my dips were so low is because the handles for the dips stand are much closer together than I am used to, which takes away from chest stimulation.

There was a track meet going on, so I couldn't hit up the track today (which is probably a good thing since my legs still haven't completely recovered). I just went to a local park and ran about 3.5miles in hiking trails.
I just ate a 'cheat meal' too . Had me a couple pieces of celery with PB, and a few pieces of bacon. What can I say, it was 11:00, and I hadn't eaten since 9:00 last night: I was starving!
05-12-2007, 01:58 PM
Celery and PB and bacon is not a cheat meal if you are on a low carb diet... .Well I guess it depends on how much PB you ate...
I'm going to drop natty PB as a fat source and use olive oil instead...
But oh man does 1-2 TBLspoons of PB fill me up WAY more than 2 TBLspoons of olive oil.
05-12-2007, 03:48 PM
It's a cheat to me!
Man, I'm really glad I didn't kill myself doing cardio today, as I've been doing yardwork all afternoon.

Recharged after taking a nap, and still feeling a little bit guilty from eating (what I consider) junk food, I jumped rope for about 30 minutes this evening.
I think, if done excessively, this could constitute as a form of bulimia.

dysmorphia is a ***** huh? I'm a carbophobe for the most part, and people think I'm a lunatic when I think I'm getting soft.. same situation when I think I'm getting smaller.

Decided to take it easy today, ran a steady 4 miles.
So here's a look at what's coming up in my cutting schedule:
Monday-Friday (5-14 to 5-18): I start Sodium Loading: salting the crap out of everything, and drinking assloads of water, to really get the Na+ pumps going into hyperdrive.
Saturday (5-19): Sodium intake returns to normal, and I start the anabolics. I'm planning on starting with 10mg Superdrol and 6mg of TST for the first week. I will adjust dosages accordingly depending on how I feel. I will also (of course) begin taking in a little bit of carbs, to help curb the mad hypoglycemia I get from SD.
Sunday (5-27): I begin cutting sodium and water. Diet will primarily consist of oats, sweet potatoes, steak, and tilapia. Lifting will start to lull, since it's not like I'm going to build muscle during this week: I'll just come in and do a few sets to get a nice little pump going.

sure it goes without saying but watch the BP for sure man... heard some bad headache stories from TST and im sure thats due to elevated BP. GL n cant wait to see how it turns out for ya
05-13-2007, 07:33 PM
Thanks for the heads up on the BP issues, haven't read much on that. I have a naturally low BP so hopefully it shouldn't be so bad.
05-14-2007, 01:38 AM
ya i assume youll do fine just stay under 10mg. ive really only heard it from the fellas runnin 12mg+ who think they arent responding (my guess is most arent giving i long enough and are jsut over anxious)
