That means if you're planning on competing in a natty BB comp, you're clear to take it until it gets thrown on the ban list, in which case you'd have to pass the poly that says you haven't taken any since such and such date. BUT... if you aren't competing... then I'd just buy a shizz ton of it and enjoy!
hey sup man. i think youre right about it getting pulled. i bought 20g of it lol.. at 25mg per usage, that will last me a while! although i cant imagine, even if i used 100mg per day on every workout day.. that would last me 200 workouts. i cant imagine it would be anything like that.
so i am contemplating taking 2 weeks off of everything and doing a deload. i dont know if this would be smart while dieting. instinct tells me its dumb. some tendinitis is starting to flare up in the flexor just above my ankle on the front side of my right calf. this is definitely just from intense repetition on the stair master.
good news is... left bicep is feeling better.... i almost want to say it feels good. after my underhand rows early last week, the muscle was very sore but there was no pain or loss of movement! it recovered very well, this is very exciting. it has been almost 4 months. right bicep is 100%, i can curl 50sx10 without a problem. the true test will be if and when i can start doing overhand chins, rows. lesson learned -- over/under is risky when doing a shitton of arm volume

in other news, google knows WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT ME. its ridiculous, their targeted ads are very personal and have coined in on certain key words in gmail messages i have sent and received. sketchy. i want to opt out of this shit
I bought some dmaa a few days ago, waiting on it to get here, hopefully will have good experience with it. I did some research today and came across some drug website, actual drug, like cocaine and shit, and found a thread about popping dmaa pills, thought it was funny. apparently one guy took 150mg of the stuff, and ended up vomitting blood and foam for hours, dizzy, heart pounding...sounded like an all around great experience. I'm definitely going to ramp this up to 25mg and cut it off there, if even that much.

IMO, you're already fighting to hold onto whatever LBM you've got now... I would try to avoid deloading. When was the last time you deloaded? I would maybe consider bringing the intensity of the training sessions down a bit in attempts to just avoid injury while preserving muscle during the cut as opposed to training hard to the point where you think you might need a deloading week.
Glad to hear bi's feeling better. Injuries = suck.
indeed, its hard to call it.
i look great.. i really could easily stop dieting here. if i could allow myself to not be so hypercritical.
so maybe there was a whoosh today. i am pretty pleased with my overall appearance. trouble spots are the same... lower obliques, lower, outside chest area just outside of my armpit, hams/glutes. 2 more weeks. going on 1/2lb less chicken per day
Sounds like things are on the right track mate, keep at it.

i have not been on point with cals mon & tues. i havent binged, but just over where i s/b but slightly under maint. scotts rapid leanness has inspired me to kick it up a few notches.
I think the cardio is definitely ideal, especially if you are eatting the excessive calories that are recommended. I made great progress when I upped my calories, but I wasn't doing my cardio which I won't let happen again next time around.
I think you'll like it Tim.
BTW my lack of leanness inspired me to kick it up a notch as well. I had to get honest with myself and realize I wasn't doing what I needed to do over the weeks prior to last weeks diet and improvements.

yeah. my diet setup is perfect, i simply have just added more food than i have scheduled. not binging, just above the deficit i wanted to create. what can i say.
regardless, i am very excited to start DC. when i hit that BF level, i am going to coast for a few weeks.. taper down the cardio.. continue the DC stretching (particularly high hopes for that shoulder stretch & bicep stretch they talk about) and start when i am 100%. i really like the principles behind the high intensity/low volume....
somehow, i am still making diet progress despite my "fukkkkk it" attitude towards calorie targets this week. wish my left bicep well
maybe i misinterpreted... but based on the reading i did, the way it was designed to run is to utilize and progress in the same exercise over the course of a blast phase until you stall for 2 sequential sessions. the first failure to progress can possibly be attributed to an off day. the second failure is the indication to switch exercises.
my list is kind of tentative.. its not final. some of them arent necessarily ideal but i was thinking of the bicep probs i have at the moment in choosing them. if i am 100% at that time, i will be able to forgo that limitation and be far more unrestricted

db oh press
front raise / lat raise / rear delt fly ss's
35sx10 / 30sx10 / 145x10 x 4
dc stretching for delts/tris/bis. the stretches are very uncomfortable on those areas... this is probably due the fact that i have never worked upper body flexibility.. at all.. other than rotators

This isn't Tim? Who took him away; that volume is way down from normal. I'd ease into the stretching, I started off with lighter weights for any weighted stretches. At times, I have also just stretched one side at a time, the shoulder stretches can feel awkward, and the best biceps stretch for me has to be done 1 arm at a time.
Your diet setup is indeed excellent, you know how to dial in and get the results.
Good work on them delts.
You moving away from higher volume training for a bit Tim?
I'm excited about your DC training. Should be sick to watch your progress.
Woahhh 90 pounds in each hand overhead is some serious stuff man, nice work....I'm really interested in seeing how the DC training works for you. Diet looks really solid as well.
Did you give up on the DMAA by the way?

what a nice surprise look at all these posts
prob throw up a pic this weekend. looking pretty decent these days
Ill just echo the rest, very nice OH pressing. Diet looks solid too.
Do you have a set weight goal for dieting or do you go by the mirror more as to know when your done dieting
