    Flat DB - WU, 110 x 5, 110 x 5
    Front Squats - WU, 225 x 4(+1rep)(feet together), 245 x 4(+10)(not together) ...The bar was slipping off my shoulders on both sets.

    DB Static Holds - 120's x 32 sec., 120's x 26 sec.

    Diet
    Meal 1 - 1 scoop protein, 56g turkey, 2 pills thermocin
    Meal 2 - 4 egg whites, 1 whole, 84g ham, 5 m&m's, 15 peanuts, 10 better cheddars, 1g fish oil
    Meal 3 - 1 can tuna, 1 slice LC bread, 25g cheese, 1g fish oil, 3 pills thermocin

    I don't think this diet works very well for me. I have basically cut off drinking the last 3 months and been doing this sh*t for a while. My bodyfat has gone down and strength has increased....but I think I could've done this without UD2. I may stick it out for this week, not sure about next week though. I am dissapointed in my results though.

    bad news: I ate a lot more than I should have.
    good news: My ab measurement dropped to 15.5mm

    Training -
    Work 5 1/2 hours.
    Biked to school (10 minutes...very quick. also stoned as hell)
    Elliptical machine for 36 minutes (says I burned 470 cals)

    Diet- Here you go...
    meal 1 - 1 scoop protein, 56g turkey, 1/2 apple w/ tiny bit PB
    meal 2 - poppyseed muffin
    meal 3 - 4 egg whites, 1 whole, 56g turkey, 28g ham, 1 slice LC bread, 1 tbsp PB, 2 tbsp jam, 1g fish oil
    meal 4 - some nuts, 10 m&m's
    meal 5 - more nuts, 1 cup cereal, 1/2 cup milk
    meal 6 - 1 slice LC bread, 25g cheese, 1 can tuna
    meal 7 - 1 slice LC bread, 1 tbsp PB, 2 tbsp jam
    meal 8 - SBD pizza (31g pro/32g carb/10g fat)
    and something else...

    probably end up with something like: 200g pro/75g fat/150g carbs (which is how I normally would cut)

    Wow, looks like you're still plugging away with the UD2.0. Nice work all around Heath!
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Nice work with the pullups Heath. Always nice to see those PR's on a diet. 1 more month of bulking for me before I jump back on the UD2 bandwagon, yay!

    mavnveet - what is your real name btw? i am curious...anyway me and my girlfriend went up there and went to granville island during the day, there we started drinking. had like 5 beers, then i drove(yeah, no other option). met up with some friends later at The Roxy and ate and drank more. then we lost our friends(they ended up going to a wet t-shirt contest at a club) after that and my girlfriend and i walked back (coming from 1030 Howe St. to 403 E. Hastings St.) Felt like a looong walk. Then I passed out.
    Went to New Amersterdam Cafe on Monday and then i ran out to my car while i was stoned outta my mind to a cop giving me a ticket, but then he said i could get it off, and have free parking...cool.

    ryuage - i have to limit myself or i will eat 20 of those tasty mother ****ers.


    Haven't worked out since Thursday. Wanted to do a power workout on saturday and try to max for dead...but the gym closed at 5pm and I got off work at 5pm. Mad about that...then drank until monday.
    went to the library for 11 hours last two nights to finish my paper.

    bodyweight: ~200 lbs. (Eyes were kinda blurry during the morning)
    ab -16mm
    waistline - tad under 34"

    School is over on June 7th!!

    [QUOTE=heathj]mavnveet - what is your real name btw? i am curious...anyway me and my girlfriend went up there and went to granville island during the day, there we started drinking. had like 5 beers, then i drove(yeah, no other option). met up with some friends later at The Roxy and ate and drank more. then we lost our friends(they ended up going to a wet t-shirt contest at a club) after that and my girlfriend and i walked back (coming from 1030 Howe St. to 403 E. Hastings St.) Felt like a looong walk. Then I passed out.
    Went to New Amersterdam Cafe on Monday and then i ran out to my car while i was stoned outta my mind to a cop giving me a ticket, but then he said i could get it off, and have free parking...cool.
    /QUOTE]

    lol, "Manveet" IS my REAL name, seriously. It's funny because no one believes me, but if you grew up in Vancouver names similiar sounding to mine are quite common among the east indian community.

    Secondly, sounds like you had quite night
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
