Yeah i'm overwhelmingly curious about what martin the leangains guy can really do still don't think theres anything special about it. It's simply behavioural IMO. I cant see being able to put on serious mass like this, I definetly see breakfast being added at some point down the line for me. do you think that guy who was at the Y was natty? Yeah it's possible. Though probably bigger than the majority of most natty pros not inconceivable to think he couldn't be. I have no reason to assume he hasnt got there on his own i feel like i could explode if i did a few 12-15 week cycles of test.. but being really big isnt practical. why not? dunno. clearly you would truly be a behemoth if you ran test. The other guy that asked me about tren and some other juice he was on during my legday... I literally watched explode on it. I had overwhelming suspicion as I was watching him grow like Ive rarely seen anybody. He works like ****ing animal though. Clearly it's combination of the two. Honestly him telling me he was on and seeing what it did for him I feel I could benefit the same, and it's tempting, but I'd lose all my lifting pride. He's 11 weeks out from a show and by my judgement more like 20. I talked to him briefly about diet, he has a handle but didnt even know his macros, just went by daily consistent portions. It will be interested to see what happens with this guy in the next 11 weeks. from what i can see, the new apartment looks great. nice wallmount lcd! I'm digging it so far, thanks

    edit: the above paragraph looks like ramblings of a 8 year old. i like it good ****.

    Ate breakfast yesterday as I didn't want to drag first day at nuclear plant with little rest. Weight in 198 yesterday 198.5 today. Good ****. Since I've pretty much met one of beginning goals of learning some moderation without either extreme in diet I'm going to take a few days, maybe a week to track. I'm not going to change my eatting habits as of lately, I'm just going to record the amount of oats I pour into the bowl I feel I need etc. Anxious to see the numbers, though they're probably lower than I feel like they are. I feel like I'm eatting 3500-3800kcal. We'll see.

    I definitely like the sound of this. Almost 200 pounds and you still are rather lean, that's definite progress.

    I believe that getting away from all of the obsession with weighing your foods and making sure your portions are divided perfectly helps get yourself away from the monotonous routine that can be BBing. That's definitely one thing I've always strayed away from and I've never been one to obsess over it, and I'm quite happy that I don't.

    Oh and 130 pounds, SICK.

    Pressing went like this
    - Warmups felt light
    - First set of 120s I bombed the setup yet again
    - Second set I nailed it and was on pace for a killer set. Assface apparently thinks I was going to need a spot at about rep 2 or 3 runs over and tries to grab my wrists. I fiercely yelled out DONT TOUCH ME! Suprisingly rather than screw my concentration I had an epic adrenaline rush and banged out the next 5 or 6 flawlessly.
    - I had no intnetions of making the jump today but with that set being smoked I decided to do one set of 130s for a double maybe a tripple given I'm making a swing to lower rep ranges for a little while. Never thought I'd get five. They were shakey and not 100% depth but in my eyes all completely legitmate reps. Fresh it's tough to say if this set would have been better or worse and without my prior mid set motivation.

    Video




    Food totals came in @ 3810kcal, 71.9f/464.5c/346.2p This is pretty much spot on how I've been eatting lately. Considering my eatting is consistent and my prediction about my intake were quite accurate the extra stress and time of weighing and counting like today is doing things ass backwards IMO.

    For a more detailed look of what my eatting has looked like you can check it out here (http://www.fitday.com/fitness/Public...ml?Owner=ror_e) . The shake in there at breakfast (which was the .5 "BF Whey" and "solution 5") was good for 160cals that hadn't been in the last couple weeks of me floating at maintenace. So 3810 - 160 = still dead in my ballpark assumption of 3500-3800 that I made.

    Flat benching heavy DBs in each hand for several sets is no joke, props.

    I agree. It's like your approach to prep last year, you trusted yourself and it all worked out.

    Yesterdays legs

    Squats
    135x10
    135x8
    185x6
    185x6
    225x4
    225x4
    275x4
    275x4

    Legs felt fine though this. For not lifting them in 6 weeks I was suprised how light this all felt. Not that it isn't light, it's just I would have though 2pps would feel like 3pps after such a layoff.

    DB Lunges
    50s x 20
    75s x20
    75s x10

    Legs felt pretty good on these too until the last set. I could have finished it easy and would have like to move up in weight again, but I felt a little discomfort in my right leg towards the end. Not pushing anything yet.

    Reverse hypers I hold the plate about a foot above my head. Not on it, nor are my arms outstretched.
    +10 x 10
    25x10
    25x8
    25x8

    Commentary I think they're going to be okay. I'm just going to keep easing into some more for a while here. If I get healthy before long Im thinking about squatting heavy 2x a week at the expense of some upper body volume as the margin I've widened here the last two months I'm not happy with.

    They're alright. They're white potatoes so that was a post workout meal there. I didn't have much food in the house so I used them. Lately I've been eatting freezer soft pretzels but I was out. I'm probably order dextrose and/or malto with my next supp order because when I start working out at work it's going to be right after and I'll need something easy to pack.

    Where do you order most of your supps?

    Really? I always thought they were kinda pricey in terms of shipping...

    No wonder you were able to press all that weight up, the gym was playing our song.

    I order several months worth of whatever I'm ordering. In such volume a $7-8 shipping charge I don't even notice especially when you factor in the money I save from buying most other places. Even more clutch is theres a warehouse in PA and with ground shipping I get it the next day.

    I thought we first danced to bryan adams?

    Good workout. Even enjoyed it and normally I hate training each and every one of these groups.

    In general things are really good too. Not full out bulking has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. My confidence is prepetually topped off as if I'm holding peak condition and I find myself being pretty alpha. I went out last night to one of the bars near my place. Met a girl there and hit it off for a while. We walked over to another bar nextdoor. Ran into an ex there (straight up brittany daniel look alike that it didn't work out with), rather than get uncomfortable and ackward like I would have expected myself to, I gave her a big hug, picked her up, kissed her on the cheek and started joking about how much I missed her (which I don't). It was pretty funny.

    That's great news regarding the last leg workout. I'm actually surprised that you were even playing with 275 for reps knowing that you haven't squatted in weeks. It's gotta be encouraging that 275 wasn't as heavy as you anticipated. I definitely see some big increases in your squat once you are into things full swing.

    You've been killing things lately. Very fun to watch.

    dude you blew it

    whenever a girl tells you "i dont want you to think im a slut" thats when you either whip it out and/or rip her pants off because she is in fact a slut

    dogs are seriously the best excuse ever to isolate a girl from the pack. its my mainstay. i blame everything on my dog.
