    Definetly worth trying, I mean a lot of people report good things about it. I was just kind of ranting about the tingle, so what... it makes you tingle people, get over it lol

    Creatine is definetly tried and true and worth you money. I doubt many people would argue against that.

    I absoluetely use creatine while cutting. It will be in my supplementation all the way up to and through my show day.

    And about the bananas... I was kind of being a smart ass and making it too technical. ANYTIME is a good time to eat bananas! And really, it doesn't matter whether you want to use dextrose or fruit, I was just being a little facetious. You'll likely never notice the difference if you used one or the other for years consistently.

    Lord knows I've eaten plenty of bananas including (but not limited to) post workout! I've also used dextrose post workout. By science the latter is better but it's never worth making that technical at our level....

    Thanks for clearing up the difference between dextrose and fruit sugar though, it was definitely interesting. I just figured that bananas, even if they are an inferior energy source than dextrose, are cheap and would prolly still do the trick if the supps are cutting into his budget.

    nanners are definetly cost/effective bulking. Yes hard to go wrong with them unless you're anal about nuances. I'm at the store buying them every other day when bulking, I like em a little green (=

    Bananas freakin' rule. Even when I wasn't training/dieting I ate them on a consistent basis because they taste so good haha.

    5/24/10

    Squats (deep, high-bar)
    fire hydrants, leg swings, bar x 5, 95 x 4, 135 x 3, 155 x 2, 185 x 1
    -210 x 5
    -210 x 5 [+3 reps]
    -210 x 5 [+5 lbs]

    Flat BB Bench
    external cuff warmup, bar x 12, 95 x 5, 125 x 3, 145 x 2
    -170 x 5 [+5 lbs]
    -170 x 5 [+5 lbs]
    -170 x 5 [+5 lbs]

    *Circuit: 3 sets of chin/crunch/burpee*
    Chinups
    -BW+5 x 9
    -BW+5 x 9 [+1 rep]
    -BW+5 x 6

    Crunches: x12, +5x12, +5x12

    Burpees: x15, x15, x15

    Thoughts: Felt good redeeming myself from last squat's embarrassing fail Really focused on sitting back extra far today and pushing off my heels. No more lost balance today, was very hard but very great. Bench was hard but I pushed it up! Chinups are slow to gain as always but I'm just glad I got a one rep improvement! Had a nice and big PWO meal today under the council of Behemoth who has helped me a lot with dieting information the past couple days

    GIMME SOME CARBS!

    Good stuff buddy. Glad you got back into the swing of things this year. Numbers look great after all the time off and I see the progress is still coming. Keep that diet in order and you'll only go up.

    Thanks dude. Diet for sure man. It's been pretty good the past little while, I think I just need to increase carbs a bit and especially time them better post-workout, which I did today. w00t!

    Hm... really? I've never noticed any real effect on my benching after squatting. Deadlifts on the other hand get pretty affected XD

    Thanks. Yeah I've just always done it haha. I figure if I PR'd I want it to be noted well enough that both I and others know how excited I was to accomplish it lol.

    Fix, your transformation was VERY impressive. I definitely wouldn't shy away from a bulk though. As long as you keep it clean, I doubt you'll put much fat on at all, and clearly you'd have no problem burning it off.

    Dude seriously. When I used to lift I never took Squats THAT seriously. Well, I did in a way, but now I have much tighter form and squat deeper and harder. Every time I get under the bar to squat I am always thinking "damn, this is gonna suck," but at the same time "this is one of the key ingredients to success!"

    Thank you. Yeah you're right. I mean I'm definitely gonna keep the eating up, and probably raise it up a notch here in a bit.

    Holy shiz. People weren't kidding about the tingling of Beta-Alanine. I took 3 grams just now and holy hell I'm on fire rofl. At first I thought the slight tingling was in my head, so I was like you know what I'm gonna stop thinking about it. Then my forearms started to experience a sure tingling. Pretty slight, but it was there. Then I sat down to take a dump, and that's when it hit me. The "tingling" that was present in my forearms basically shot out across my whole body, reaching my face, my ears, my neck, legs, feet, hands, etc. Then it sorta died down. It keeps coming in bursts, then will somewhat dissipate, although still being present throughout my body. I'm kind of laughing right now.

    I'm not saying the tingling means it's working, and that I bought it just for this experience, but it definitely does "tingle" (or in my case it sort of burns lol). I'm gonna go deadlift now =)

    However, since I have a nice-sized package of this stuff, should I spread out my dosage to 1.5g three times a day or something like that? That is what I read recommended, but I'm not sure if it's better to concentrate it at workout (although I'd rather not light myself on fire next time, unless it is what it takes for it to be effective, then I will do it).

    True that. However, the dump causes me to strain my muscles a bit, so at least with BA I'll be able to perform my dump sets more efficiently.

    5/26/10

    Sumo Deadlifts
    fire hydrants, leg swings, 45 x 10, 95 x 5, 135 x 4, 185 x 3, 225 x 3
    -275 x 3
    -315 x 3
    -355 x 3 <-- sort of a PR

    Standing one-armed DB Press
    -40's x 7 [+1 rep]
    -40's x 7 [+1 rep]
    -40's x 7

    Ghetto Rows
    -120 x 7
    -120 x 7
    -120 x 8

    *Dips/Lifts/Jumps performed supersetted
    Dips
    -BW+35 x 11 [+5 lbs]
    -BW+35 x 9 [+5 lbs]

    Lying Leg Lifts: x12, x12
    Tuck Jumps: x40, x50

    Question: Do you think it's odd that I can 1RM 390 Deadlift and when pulling 355 only get 3 reps? I've read that 90% of 1RM's usually give people about 5 reps. I could've maybe gotten 4 reps if I really pulled with all my might and strength, but I didn't want my form to get crappy and was really just aiming for the triple to begin with. What do you guys think?
