  1. Nice work Alex. 765 is a load o weight.


  2. weds-max upper

    decline press-315#-12(these were awful, felt like I had never done these before)
    dips-3 sets 15
    pulldowns-3 sets 15-140#
    pushdowns

    Another crappy workout. Felt incredibly weak and off balance on declines. I deserve this for living like an alcoholic for 3 weeks. Oh well, I'll keep pluggin away.

  3. friday-dyn lower

    squats-16" box-275#-6x2

    GHR-3 sets 12

    leg raises

    decent workout. still felt a bit out of it.

    sunday-dyn upper

    Inc bench-205#-6x3-speed was excellent

    flyes-40#w/monstamini behind back-2 sets 12

    cable rows-90# w/avg band doubled-2 sets 12

    pushdowns

    finally felt back to normal. things should begin to progress from here, I hope.

  4. GHRs are quite possibly the best exercise going right now.

    They are great, or if you have a messed up back or are looking for a badunkadunk then reverse hypers are the way to go.

  7. I'm pretty light, so I can hammer those off pretty good. Not like you mammoth bastards.

    shnikey, time for me to start using a band around the neck, those are brutal.

    Is that you deadlifting? I'd love to see a vid or some pics. I think I'm getting a digi for christmas, so I will start posting some vids sometime in the new year.

    Yeah, here's the vid:


  11. monday-max lower

    deadlift-standing on 4" block-565#(very pleased with this, wasn't pretty but locked it out)

    squats-275#-2x20

    knee raises

    Good workout. I'm weak out of the bottom, so that 565# made me very happy. Used a skinny little kid weightlifting belt, as the one I normally use was digging way too much in that position.

  12. Damn that's a serious pull off a 4'' block. Good work.

    Damn, I don't know how you did that. Your positioning looks crazy, nice lift.

  14. I drank too many Rockstars. I get kind of out of it. My right leg is much too far behind. I had a really nice clean pull off the floor right before that. Cam died though. I'll try and get it next time.

  16. Pump up video for your next workout



    I like how Drago does a close to 400# standing military about as slowly as possible, and Rocky does no sparring in training for a fight.

  17. weds-max upper

    standing military-225#

    military rack lockouts-315#x3(bar started lower this time though)

    dips-25,20

    one arm cable rows-70#-3 sets 15

    good workout. did a little tapdance with the standing military. Jas, the standing military's may increase quickly because I haven't done them for so long. I'll work them for a month and we'll start the contest from there.

  18. Damn Vanavich. 225 is pretty good for not having done them in a while. You must be channeling Drago. This should be a good race since overhead stuff might be the only thing that I can hang with on (unless you go on another bender ) I might give them a whirl tomorrow for a 1RM.

  19. Yeah, I was pleased with that. I've kind of slacked on overhead pressing for a while now, but for years my best lifts were military and behind the neck presses, and deads. What I really should be working on is dips/declines/downward pressing and squats, but who wants to work on sh*t that you're not that good at?

    Another bender is a scary proposition. All these long losts are back for thanksgiving and now christmas. I haven't seen these ****s the past 3-4 christmas', now they're all appearing. These people don't like to have a couple drinks, they want to get blitzkrieged out of control. At least I don't indulge in all the drugs they do. I have that last person standing mentality. I can never leave a party/bar until the bitter end, so I aint going out at all this go round.

    Yeah, I hear ya. My old friends are all about getting plowed although they've calmed down a little since most are married now. I was definitely playing "flippy cup" over the Thanks break with a bunch of 27-30 yos. If I drink much over 10 beers these days though I will be hung over for the entire next day. I used to drink 18-24 every weeknd night in college. Where's that old man emoticon?

    Not sure how the hangover thing works. When I was 16-22 I would get blackout drunk at least twice a week, and the other 5 nights just mildly retarded. I never got a hangover, woke up a little silly, but was perfectly normal within an hour. I was a very heavy drinker, may have ****ed up some organs or something. From 23-27 I couldn't drink. After 2 beers I felt sick and just tired. Now, I'm rejuvenated, on that last bender I was drinking a fifth every night and waking up feeling great???? Whatever, I'm done with drinking, until summer at least. I should probably never drink, as I'm definitely an alcoholic, along with most of my family, luck of the Irish.

  23. 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...

  24. 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..................

  25. Have you taken any of the following supps? If so, give me a good, bad, not worth it, etc. rating.

    X-factor
    HX2
    Drive
    IGF2
    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 ).

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

    The clout tastes AWESOME, by the way. Maybe it was the sucralose or maltodextrin/dextrose that caused you some problems? Seeing as you don't ever seem to eat high GI sugars.

    Yeah Clout tastes a little off. I don't think it's the malto/dextrose. I eat fruit that has dextrose in it frequently so that shouldn't be an issue.
