    I've just recently moved, and begin my summer job on Monday. I've joined a new gym (Health and Strength Gym), and am pretty stoked about it all because they have much nicer facilities (and Hammer Strength's) than my college's gym.

    Here is (tentatively) what my diet will look like for the next couple of weeks:
    4am: 5 g BCAA's and my Pre-workout "homebrew" (see supplements) 5mg Yohimbine, 12.5mg Ephedrine HCl, 1000mg Vit. C, (Possibly some chocamine if I'm needing an extra boost)
    4:30-5:30ish: 10g BCAA's mixed in green tea with RK
    5:30: Post workout shake (1-2 scoops of ATW whey protein Blend).
    7:00 Breakfast: 6 whites, 1 yolk, greens, and some lean ham, roast beef, or turkey. B-complex Milk thistle and Sesamin.
    10:00: 2nd Breakfast: 1 & 1/2 cans of chunk lite tuna mixed with some sort of condiments (hot sauce, mustard, salsa, or a combination)
    1:00pm: Lunch: Same or similar tuna concoction
    4:00pm: Dinner#1 : 2 Grilled Tilapia filets with greens
    6:00pm: Dinner #2: Grilled Chicken breast or lean steak with some more greens
    8:00pm: Dinner #3: Cottage cheese with some cashews
    9:00pm: Bedtime: 10mg Zinc, 3 mg Melatonin, 500mg TTA, 1000mg Vit. C.
    *This is a little high in the sodium content, but it's all good. With enough water, I'll get my sodium pumps upregulated like crazy (we're talking Tom Cruise kinda crazy) for when it comes time to cut water and Na+.



    Supplementation:
    -Homebrew Pre-workout: 1 TBS contains 1g Tyrosine, 2g Dicreatine Malate, 2g Creatine Monohydrate, 2 g Beta Alanine.
    -Yohimbine HCl: Taken in 5-10mg incriments 2-3x daily.
    -Chocamine: Taken 500mg bi-daily (or as I feel the need for a little extra 'oomph')
    -Ephedrine HCl: 12.5mg taken 2-3x daily
    -Zinc: 10mg every night
    Milk Thistle: 500mg every day, usually taken with breakfast #1
    TTA: 500mg 2-3x daily. (500mg is ALWAYS taken prior to cardio and prior to bed)
    Sesamin: 1-2 tsp daily, split into 2-3 doses

    **My diet and supplementation scheme will change dramatically over these next few weeks, but I will be sure to keep everybody updated.


    My Training Schedule is as follows (I am switching it up from HST to a 4-day split):
    Monday: Legs:
    3 sets Squats
    3 sets Hack Squats
    3 sets Stiff-Legged Deadlifts
    3 sets Leg Press
    3 sets Leg Extensions
    2 sets Standing Calf Raise
    1 sets wrist curls
    Tuesday: Shoulders & Traps:
    3 sets DB Shoulder Press
    3 sets Smith Military Press
    3 sets Glass-style Side Laterals
    3 sets High Pulley Rear Delt Cable Cross
    3 sets DB Trap Raise
    2 sets Wrist Curls
    1 sets Standing Calf Raise
    Wendesday: HIIT Cardio
    Treadmill or Elliptical Action
    Thursday: Back & Biceps
    3 set Rack Pulls or Deadlifts
    3 sets Hammer Strength Rows
    3 sets Pulldowns
    3 sets Incline DB Rows
    3 sets Incline DB Curls
    3 sets Preacher Curls
    2 sets Calf Raise (whatever I'm up for that day)
    Friday: Chest & Triceps
    3 Sets Incline DB Press (might have to replace with Hammer strength machine, as I don't know how high their DB's go)
    3 sets Incline Smith Bench
    3 sets Weighted Dips
    3 sets Rope Cable Extensions
    2 sets One-arm Reverse Grip Pushdowns
    1 sets Calf Raise
    1 sets Wrist Curls
    Saturday: HIIT Cardio
    I don't think I'm gonna bother waiting for the gym to open on it's later weekend hours (or drive my ass all the way up there). I will probably run Sprints and agility drills.
    Sunday: Cardio
    Free day Cardio. I do whatever the heck I please.

    **Also note, I will probably be doing second sessions of cardio in the afternoon (more likely than not this will consist of jumping rope or an HOC circuit that includes jumping rope), after I get home from work, 2-3 days per week. I'm also thinking about putting in some neck work, so if I have time on a couple of my days, I'll be throwing in a little bit on the neck machine.


    Weight and measurements will be posted tomorrow morning (upon wakening).

    If you are still awake, thanks for taking the time to read.

    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.

    oh what? wait i thought you were a chick

    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!

  12. 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.

    Man, I'm really glad I didn't kill myself doing cardio today, as I've been doing yardwork all afternoon.
    You cardio is seriously insane.... so I'm assuming you only did 45 minutes of HIIT today?

  14. If I cheat with PB, I'm eating the jar.......and I've done that before.

    Me too. I'm even worse with Nutella. I made a new year's resolution not to even purchase Nutella this year because whenever I buy and open a jar, there's a 90% chance it'll be gone within 45 minutes

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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)

  20. oh so this is where you post now. too good for cycle info are we? huh? HUH?!!!!!!!

  21. Leg Day today:
    Squats: 225*15 315*7 315*6
    Hack Squat: 180*12 230*14 270*10
    Stiff-Legged Deadlift: 225*11 275*10 295*7
    DB Lunges: 60*10 60*10 65*8
    Leg Extensions: 205*15 205*15 305*10
    Standing Calf Raise: 200*10 200*15
    Thick Bar Wrist Curls: 105*40

    Bodyweigh Today: 172lbs
