    Note to all: Our moddest mullet may not have told you all, but he is a payed guest at the GNC conference. He's found himself a very important role in the world of fitness. He's the official body double for the "before pictures" in mass gain ads

    Okay, okay, that's "really" the last one
    Oh yeah! Speaking of that, Jacob said he would pay you for your fat shots for the ReCreate 'before'. However, he said to take them with your bra on. The 'C' cup may turn people off.

    Promise, last one.

    For real, if you need anything feel free to request.


  2. Ha, ha Predictable, but still enjoyable.

    Sweet... first request: make a double-double into a fat burner?

  3. If that were true I'd unfortunately be more gaunt than I am currently - no dice brethren. I can, however, send you some ReCreate.

  4. Thanks, I appreciate it. However, at present it would go to waste. There is no way I could eat the way I'd need to in order to lose my tits until July, and I'd hate to be one of those supp-whores with a bunch free stuff in my dresser that someone else may have benefited from. But, I do have a plan! My plan as of right now is just to put some muscle back on so the fat has to distribute itself over a larger area

  5. Haha, that is a solid plan!

    As it stands, I am pretty unimpressed with your bests given the wider context of the sh!t you talk. I have you handily beat in all except bench @ 170. Anyway, now you have motivation to smash through your plateaus on your way past me.

    I suppose this is my way of saying good luck, fatty!

    -Mullicious subbed.
    When have you squatted over 450 @ 170? You told me you don't go much over 250 at your current weight. You may have gotten over 450 at 205-210 (in a suit?) but let's stop making crap up, Mullet.

    Ok, continue Hiroshima-fest.

  7. Week 1, Workout #3: Chest, Tris, Shoulders
    Okay, so I went ahead and did some flat bench... I was still a little sore from the last workout, but not sore enough to account for this level of weakness And, I felt MUCH stronger than I did last time I was in the gym, so I'd honestly guess you could take 20-30+lbs off of what I did today, and that would have been my working set last week.

    Flat Bench:
    Warmup w/ 135x10, 185x4, 225x1
    Working set: 245 x 3 --> Then I quit Big drop in strength, but it could have been worse, I suppose.

    Incline Hammer
    Didn't even count the weight, just threw stuff on there and repped it nice and slow for 4 sets of 10-15 reps.

    Also did Hammer Shoulder Press, and machine dips.

  8. good job

  9. Sweet... no gym updates, but measured arms and I'm up to 16 7/8". I'm up 3/4" in a week (from 16 1/8" when I started)! (Although, it really doesn't feel like it.)

  10. Week 2, Workout #1
    Okay, its actually been one whole week to the day since I've been back in the gym! "yay", what an accomplishment, right? Did back/bis today. Felt much stronger again. Can't compare anything to last week other than preacher curls. Last week my preacher curls were 85 lbs for a few reps, today I was able to go up to 95lbs for about 8 or 9 reps. So, that was nice.

    Everything was very slow and controlled.

    Hammer High Row: 185 x 8-13 x 3
    Pulldowns: 120 x 8-10 x 3 (This is the "heaviest" pull down machine I've ever used! The pulley's must be setup funny.)
    Hyper extensions: BW+25lbs x 10 x 3
    Preacher Curls 85 x 12, 95 x 6-9 x 2
    One armed machine curls: 70 x 9 x 3

  11. Sweet Jesus Kwycke, welcome back. With all this horny talk, I can put down my Mountain Jugs Magazine and get fresh again. Thank you.

  12. Yeah, good to be back, thanks! Hopefully I'll be sticking around!

  13. Back from Vegas - not my town. Keep it going.

    He said he was repping 370. Not pushing yourself and not having the ability are not the same. However, from now on I'll make sure to check with you what weights I am pushing, jas. Thanks.

    Anyway, sorry kwyck, hijack over.

  15. No weights today kwyck?

    Nah, nothing today. Got my routine all screwed up b/c I had to be at a hospital doing some volunteer competency testing crap. I'll be back in the gym tomorrow.

  17. Vegas ****ed pretty significantly with my training as well. Buffet food + being stuck in a booth all day = fat and skinny Mullet.


  18. Fat and skinny? Join the club

    Having said that, I would have loved to hit some Vegas buffets! That sounds like a hell of a lot of fun. Eating = my favorite thing ever.

  19. Week 2, Day 2Chest / Shoulders / Tris
    Lifts were all up again (no surprise here), but more exciting was that FINALLY that pump I've been waiting for hit me. I actually looked like I had some muscle on me after I got some blood flowing in my upper body,

    Hammer Flat: 245 x 13-9 reps x 3 (+20lbs and about 5 reps over last week)--I actually thought the difference between hammer bench and flat would have been larger than it was, but to my surprise, it wasn't that huge of a difference.
    Hammer Shoulder Press: 185 x 13-9 reps x 3 (+50lbs over last week, but I lifted light last week)
    Side Laterals: 25 lbs x 11-8 x 3 (+7.5lbs over last week)
    Incline Flys: 30lbs, slow, 3 sets, didn't count
    Rope pulldowns (tris): 2 sets, didn't count weight
    Dips machien: 2 sets,d didn't count weight

  20. Maybe I didn't catch it, but are you alternating between free weights and machines, or keeping on machines for the sake of tendons and/or initial ego (I know how it is).

  21. I'm alternating. Since I'm hitting each body part every 4 days or so I figured it'd be a good idea. I don't have a "set routine" or anything. I'm just going to head in, lift, and go home.

    I'm over the ego thing at the moment. Hopefully it'll stay that way! Ego lifting = injuries. I am, however, a bit concerned about strength gains from just starting back up in the gym. I'm going to really have to watch my tendons and joints if I keep eating decent. Muscle memory = good and bad

    Definitely. Such rapid acceleration can land you injured pretty quick. I avoided that by using a routine that employed movements once every two weeks (or something similar). I like 'feel' training though. Keeps things exciting!

    Yeah, I'm with you on the feel training... that's largely what's determining my workouts right now. I just consider what I want to hit, hit it until it feels good with whatever exercise sounds good at the moment, and then remind myself I'll be hitting it again in 4 days so I don't over do it.

  24. Measurements update:

    Start: 5/14/08 ---------------> Today: 5/25/08 (11 days)
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Arms (flexed): 16 1/8" -----> 17"
    Chest: 48" --------------------> 49.25"
    Shoulders: 55" ---------------> 55.5"
    Quads: 26" (not checked yet)
    Calves: 16 1/4" (not checked yet)

    My size is coming back before my strength. Very odd, usually it happens the other way.

  25. Week 2, Day 2
    Quick workout today; I have a lot to do.

    Hammer High Row: 225 x 13-8 x 3 -- felt much stronger this week... MUCH stronger. It was very nice.
    Assisted Pullups: <-- upset they were assisted, but if I wanted to get 10+ reps I needed it. 3 sets :'(
    Preacher Curls: 75lbs x 3 sets x 8-10 reps. I was toasted from the heavy rows and lots of pullups, so I couldn't lift heavy.

    Overall, it was a good day. I actually saw veins in my bicep... wow....
