    I started taking Hydroxycut in Jan. to help with fat loss. Now Ive switched over to Xenadrine EFX Ive heard its a little safer.


    Ive also just started taking Mega Glutamine but I cant find anything that says if I should take it daily or just on work out days and Ive also read to take anywhere from 2-14 grams a day. Ive been taking 5g everyday workout days and off days included, I dont know if thats enough.

    Well done on your goals thus far. As for the Glutamine. The following article in the archive section should help answer some questions. Wannabebig Supplement Guide to Glutamine

    Good luck on your journal.

    Nice work man, make sure you get enough protein throughout the day.

    You take any bars or protein rich foods with you too work?

    Thanks guys for the support. I havent been drinking any protein shakes for a month or so and I havent found a bar yet that is any good, I'm open for suggestions if anyone knows of one that is good tasting. I usually have a can of tuna right after my workout and 1 1/2 hrs. later I usually have some chicken and cottage cheese.

    you gonna eventually add squats to legs?

    As you get stronger, i could see a potential core strength problem, ie. weak spinal erectors, general lower back area, obliques, hip flexors, abs, and so on. Make sure you do some ab/oblique work (add weight if needed), and you may want to think about Dead Lifts as well as squats.

    Nice work man, looks good.....

    I like how you did the chins (pullups) first this time. you should keep it that way. Also, I think you should add a set in, and take one out of you cable pulldowns. Dont worry if you only get 5 reps or so on the last set of chins, leave the ego at home!!

    Nice work on the preachers!!

    You may be working the biceps a bit much, but see how progression goes and adapt from there.

    USE BIGGER DBs on those shrugs!! i think you would be fine with a set with the 70s and then hit the 75s-80s.

    Ive been thinking about starting some squats, probably using the Smith machine due to the fact Im as coordinated as a one legged blind girl. Hey big E my pu$$y hands can barely sustain the weight Im using now on my Shrugs, my hands give out before my traps do, any suggestions for this?

    Glad to see that YOU WILL start doing some squats....some people hate the smith, but it is better than no squats at all, once you feel more comfortable you can work your way out of the smith, or not. bottom line, SQUAT

    About the grip thing, use some chalk if the Y has some. I would say use straps, but i wouldnt want them to become a crutch. So just stick with it I guess, the grip will get better over time. If you are really concerned about your grip you could do some static holds in the rack or on a smith. Just load the fuken bar up and hold it (like at the top of a dead lift) until you cant hold it any longer.
