I hear ya on that M3, goddamn I want that car haha. That and a Ducati 848 (or maybe the S1000RR) and I'd be set.
Btw, your dieting techniques scare me. . I'm interested to see your results, but I'm wondering if it would really hurt your leanness all that much to be on a surplus every day. Obviously, you know way more about this stuff than I do and you know your body, but I'm curious to see if you could gain muscle faster than you think while still staying lean?
me too, i love the 2011 m3's. sadly its out of my regular jobs price range... i could buy one.. but i would be highly leveraged and i would have to give up a lot of comfort...and considering i already own my 2007 avalanche outright..... its would be dumb. but an extra $1k/mo.... i could piss that away guilt-free haha
what are you doing up
only the people who are still drunk and those that are insane (me) are up right now
Log me in for being insane please?

hahah check and check
chest and back inc. i'm not even going to attempt bb bench... just rotator warmup and low db incline.. it will help with shoulder girdle comfort until i can evaluate where im at
I'm going to transfer some of my bench work over to dumbbells starting next week and see how it feels. Gotta try something different, not expecting much of a gain while on this massive cut though. I just wanna see 200, but I never try to max out, so who knows.
Not a bad idea playing it safe, especially with the shoulder, that could be freakin painful and screw other parts of training up.

well after some band rotator warmups and some more light rotator warm ups i did bench anyway. im a hypocrite
AM weight 172.3
bb bench.. PL style.. shoulders tucked full arch.. the comfort zone for me... i didnt plan on bb benching so i didnt write down my projected warmup before i left.. so this is slow and steady
no probs, feeling good
db row per arm
this ex is the goddamn culprit right here. need to find a sub.... this is the last week im doing db rows.. maybe ill do the HS plate loaded row.. or go back to bb row (most likely)
bb inc bench
155x6,2,1, pinned on 10th, i just did a situp with the weight in the clean position and reracked hah
db curls per arm
db incline press per arm
100 cal stairmaster 85s/m
done. off we go to the land of massive amounts of oatmeal, ww pasta and chicken...
edit: and now looking at my projected lifts, i was supposed to do 215 on bench today, not 220.. ill roll with it and do 225 next week. 220 isnt that bad. 5th rep on 2nd set is a little tough but im pausing for about a 1/4 sec at the bottom.. either way, im gonna have to reset a few weeks down the road to accommodate unforseen diet adjustments

Interesting how you feel about the db rows, phasing them out for another movement sounds like a deal.
Fine workout dude.

So the DB Rows are causing the cuff pain eh? That is a shame. Do you think it has anything to do with how much of a RoM you use with the rows? I sort of have been wondering this myself, but when doing the row negative, do you lower your hand/arm/whatever all the way down to the point where it feels like your shoulder is fully extended or do you keep it somewhat tight and pulled back? I have been going full RoM because that's just what I do with pretty much every exercise, but it feels like it is probably hard on the cuffs. I do Ghetto T-bar Rows with a barbell btw.
Good workout bro. I love the feeling of getting in a solid session then having that eating window where you can (depending on your goals) permit yourself to eat lots lol.

need your help. Was going to get a quick suggestion as to what Diet to follow to cut. I am looking to compete july 17th in USAPL Raw Nationals and i want to compete in the 181lb class. Im at 193 in the mornings now.
Was thinking about a 2100-2300 kcal/day diet, carb cycling somewhat, and doing an insane amount of cardio. Its a 2 hr weigh in... Got any recomendations?

am crew checking in.
260's by May
am bw 173.0.. this is high.. i took a second bigger dump shortly afterwards in case anyone wanted to know
now this wouldnt have been hard.. but my back was not recovered from last week. more on this below
def deads on 25#ers
burnt out, no need to push it on GMs
decline situps, plates held behind head
no cardio... i need rest
now.. i did hear back from alberto and i made diet revisions. the way i structured my off days was not ideal per him & was hurting my ability to recover.. which based on today, makes pretty good sense.. so i'm going back to what i was doing the prior 2 weeks with a small bump in cals.

There's always going to be a tweaking of sorts with the diet & training, glad to see you stay on top of things.
What were the main adjustments that Berto has in line for you, or what you were doing 2 weeks ago? I'd say it wouldn't be a bad idea to try the carb rotation at some point in the future, just to see how it works for you, you'll never know until you do it. Just like how I changed up my routine DRASTICALLY lately.
Consistency is the key to success within this sport...
