Have you seen where the ab wheel is replaced by a barbell with a plate on each side?
What a great idea! This way you don"t have to touch floor with your nipples (or teeth)! Will try it tomorrow!

This will be a workout that has others watching you, like when I do weighted pull ups. All the puzzy-man peeking from behind their machines, LOL!
It will also need some space. "Hey, puzzy-man, out of my way, I'm rolling through!"

As anyone can see, my "max effort" -or "heavy" monthly week, is not maxing out weight but rather "leaving the comfort zone".
I prefer less (but considerable) weight and more difficulty using TUT , double dipping, slow-mo and negatives.
I swear by it and had no injury for over a year. I highly recommend it to older folks -or maybe beginners to follow a similar approach, after having setbacks from nagging injuries.

Tried today, well, not even tried. The plates are hexagonal. Pushed the bar to see if its still doable -but nah, gives an unpleasant shaker effect to the exercise.

Also handy for guys like me who work out from home and have limited weights.

Today was full body, gauging weights for progressive overload in future.
Gonna train twice a day, starting tomorrow.

Blight may help with recovery, I count on it.

So far I'm very pleased with "Blight". Better recovery is noticeable.
Apparently, as others noted here, it does not make you as sleepy after awhile.
I may try to split the dose now and take am/pm.

Those Arms are looking Massive !!
For awhile now I'm experimenting with carbs, slin and my glycogen stores.
I had my carb backload the day before. Glycogen was depleted.
Went to bed at 93.5kg (206 lbs), woke up at: 97kg (214lbs). 8lbs weight gain over night!

Well, not over night, more in the afternoon, after training, hydration and intra-carbs.

Only for people who want look their best on a special day -or want to be in optimal condition for a planned hard workout.
Full glycogen storage = biggest looking. "How to do" is what I experiment with. "Always swole" is the holy grail, I guess.

You are becoming quite knowledgeable regarding BB competition physiology.

Not my intention -but could be useful.
After a cycle we all look flat. There has to be a way to keep the swoleness.
I'm working on it.
Carb manipulation, slin, pde-5 inhibitors and either potassium- or sodium seem to be key player.

To better observe changes, I have to lose at least another 3% BF. God I hate that.

Yes but once you do you will be happy as a hog in the mud! Also once you drop 3% you will look jacked all the time unless actually depleted. Will just have to buy smaller shirts to show it off. Don't keep wearing the close you have now if getting smaller gets to you, just buy something that fits and TADA!!!!

Blight tub is empty.

Experiences:
-Helps recovery, no doubt! Noted it after about one week.
-May make you sleepy for the first 2 weeks

My verdict:
Worth the money!
