Yeah most of that sound familiar except I think I was about 2-3 years behind you in when my alcoholic phase started so I'm still in my antialcohol phase. I was definitely borderline alcoholic at 23, waking up embarassed/ashamed of my out of control behavior after every night of drinking. I couldn't go back...

I hear ya, man, so many people must hate us. First thing I say to people I haven't seen since back then is, "I'd like to apologize..................

Have you taken any of the following supps? If so, give me a good, bad, not worth it, etc. rating.
Neovar (not a big CEE fan but just curious)
or anything else that you like.
I'm done with Clout. It's always been rough on my stomach, but it's became unbearable and at the worst times (with some new chick ).
12-20-2007, 01:50 AM
Does Ms. "Big Dogg" know about this new chick? I wonder what in Clout is ****ing you up. What's in it, creatine/ba/cit malate? I have all those supps minus the HX2 and IGF2(but I have powerfull, similar I believe), but haven't used any of them yet. I'm gonna start X-factor soon, oh actually I started Neovar a week ago, but haven't noticed a whole lot yet. Does CEE mess up your tummy? I think it might screw with mine, but I haven't been able to pinpoint it for sure. Only supp that I can think of that I had really good luck with is Anabolic Pump. Good pumps, fullness, and increased strength. A lot of that could have to do with the increase in carbs, but I believe it is a solid product. I stopped taking Synthesize during my bender, but that seemed to be good stuff as well. Never got past 2 weeks with it so I can't say for sure. I'm definitely going to give it another go, it seemed promising. I know you like geranamine to some extent and NP is selling 60 mg caps at a ridiculous price. One of those caps and 3g l-tyro is a nasty pre-wo stack IMO. I've been using 2-3 adrenaline, but I'm switching to 1 NP geranamine cap, about to put in an order at the planet.
12-20-2007, 02:04 AM
Clout has those and vinpocetine as well as few other things, but the creatine is actually tricreatine oritine (sp?). Not sure what causes the issues.
I never felt like CEE did much for me and it seemed to stress my kidneys (no proof of this though).
Yeah I think IGF-2 is similar to powerfull which was just ok IMO. I didn't get much from Anabolic Pump personally. Poly gave me some Incarnate that he didn't want so I'm trying that right now along with the adrenaline and some samples I have stockpiled.
12-20-2007, 02:16 AM
If you've got some extra cash give Synthesize a shot. I think Avant is the real deal. Wordsworth sold me on them, and of course I read up on them quite a bit.

My dad's been busy, but I'd still like to try and make one. We'll see what happens. Maybe they bought me one for Xmas.

squat(16" box)-405-16 (55 secs)
GHR-(1 1/8" band)-13,10
Good workout. Jas, I can see why you just touch n go at that height. The box is not low enough to really sit 'back' on. I sat on them the best I could, but I have a feeling when I try your style next week I'll get similar results. Were you slamming down on it or just touching and going lightly?
12-23-2007, 02:14 AM
I hit it moderately hard. I like to get a "bounce" at the bottom on squats without the box even so I lower the weight quickly and it's hard to know where the box is without a mirror (at least for a few reps). To be fair, I think everyone used knee wraps so you would certainly have won the event. Start training pvssy.
Edit: Rewatching the vid, I don't think I was hitting the box that hard. Kabuki's certainly right that it's not a good idea for spine to hit it too hard.

Never really used knee wraps. I have some knee sleaves from prowristwraps, but I don't think they lend that much support. I'm going to buy some Inzer knee wraps, not sure which kind yet though.
Our contest is going to be raw, correct? Or were you planning to use a deadlift suit?

inc bench-205#-4x3, 315#x8
flyes-80#-2 sets 12
cable rows(w/ avg band)80#-15,12
will return a little later to do some standing military's and tri's.
12-24-2007, 12:36 AM
sun-late mini session
standing military's-185#-9, 7
incline cable tri ext-80#- 12, 10
that's all. those standing military's are a mother****er. They gassed me real bad, could've been that I had already trained earlier, but damn.
12-24-2007, 03:25 AM
What are you doing pressing twice in one day? Some day when you're looking for variation try dumbell standing military. It's intense.

There is a PL Comp in the Niagara Region where I live in a few months, and if I can keep progressing back to my 200-level Deads at 170-175, I think I have a chance. But, my three-lift total is f'ing horrible.

GHR- 26, 22- gotta keep up with Buki on these
band hip work
Good workout. What are some good exercises for quads, that don't bother the knees?
12-25-2007, 11:18 PM
Damn 775 is huge. I can't hang on these at all.
The pause squats I did Sat. hit my quads well. Front squats?
12-25-2007, 11:32 PM
Well, your training is geared in a different direction, kind of. I'm sure you could pull some big numbers, but maybe you're hesitant because of your back.
I'll give the pausers a shot. Front squats are good. Only problem with them is that my breathing fails before my legs/lower back do.
12-26-2007, 05:22 AM
Naw, I just can't pull. Training or not. Do you hold you're front squats properly or in the crossed arm position? I always have to cross and never feel like my numbers are representative of my strength in the movement.
12-26-2007, 12:04 PM
I'm not sure where my max for either are right now, and it's hard to gauge off of reps. I only do 20 rep sets for Squats, because I hate big legs. Right now I'm doing 215 x 20 for those. Not sure on Bench, I'll give them both a heavy go this week.
The Provincial Record for 165 DL is somewhere around 635 I believe.
