I've been looking at this site a very long time but have honestly hardly ever posted anything. Decided i would start keeping a log on this site to get some feedback and tips if possible...I have one on Fortified already.

Just some quick info...In the last 9 months i've went from 148-152 to 170-175 in weight. My numbers have increased dramatically but still nothing impressive. I'm 5'6 and hope to do some raw meets sometime in the future at maybe 148 or 165.

Been following the same routine for last couple months and have been gaining nicely on it so i'll continue until i quit gaining.

It would be better to really go for the squats on Friday imo, but everyone has to do their own thing, their own way, the way they see fit.

I am assuming the running involved are not sprints followed by intermittent jogging, if that be the case your quads would blow up imo. Otherwise, I do understand the dilemna dude.

That's a lot of squats there, plenty of ab work too.

front squats are easy but they are hard as hell on my wrist and i was having a hard time figuring out how to hold it without it rolling out lol....maybe with some more work i can work up to something decent

My guess is you tweak the diet some and you will be more better off, since most of this is diet anyways.

just making a commennt so i remind myself......


Not sure how many people use ETS, but i realized something today. It's one of those things where when you're taking it you might not think it does much. Everytime i stop taking it for a week or 2 before ordering more, I feel how beat up i really am in my joints lol. Just thought i would throw that out there....It really does make a huge difference as far as recovery goes to me.
