    Food: All food on time

    Supps: All supps on time

    Today was a rest day, i was still a bit sore as going all out yesterday to get my personal best on deadlifts took more out me than i thought it would.

    I feel a bit better now.

    Legs tomorrow can't wait

    you UKiens...

    go do that leg day...

    go outside and do some sprints, sprints are anaerobic. do 5 "sets" of the 50 yard dash, you will be hurting tomorrow.

    The reason why your emicon didn't work is because you didn't sepcify which emicon you wanted. I take if from the fact that you had already clicked on turtle, that you wanted this one yes?

    Today was a grow day

    I had the worst nights sleep I spent most of it pacing around my room. I had this stabbing pain which was in my left trap down to my left delt and all the way down to my fingers, and the only way it seemed to hure a little less was when I was walking around



    Legs tomorrow, cant wait after i missed last weeks due to problems with my car.
