    I find this to be inconsistent. Sometimes it translates to an awful foggy minded workout, and others it turns out to be the best.
    I guess i havent yet learned how to properly chanel it.
    Ive found myself stopping before failure because it hurts and already pissed off then im even more pissed off. Its a vicious cycle lol...

    Having said that im going to run cialis/synephrine to fuel it tonight. No spotter so i better get the shoulder press machine as soon as i go in or im going to explode.

    Wish i could turn everything into a positive energy. You make it sound easy

    Ill let you know how it goes lol. Knowing my luck ill have calmed down during the drive to the gym.

    Me too but i dont know if i can blame this on test. Im sure everyone gets these days. And its not often this intense.

    I do get smll bursts of these feelings each day when people do certain things.

    Someone i cant stand at work talks to me.... listening to certain people eat their food... people putting me in a spottlight in front of people. Just stuff like that. Everyday things tht i can feel make my bp skyrocket. Face goes red and i can feel my pulse in my head.

    Funny though... you would never tell. Im actually relatively well liked. I know.. im flabbergasted also


    Also ive found that when i feel like this i sweat profusely without reason.
    I am currently sitting in a wet vest because i wasnt waiting on it drying... in a cool room. I have sweat dripping off either arm. Its horrendus at the gym also. Looks like im 'leaking'

    You are well liked because you are very likeable and level headed. There aren't many people your age on this forum because they aren't mature like you.
    Remember what defines you as you are now, you have a recipe for success at whatever you try your hand at. As Quester said your ability to appeal to others is a great quality, that aspect alone can make you successful at anything.

    Parents used to say that to me, never believed them.

    Thanks obs. I always do what i can not to make the world a worse off place.

    Im very lucky to have a nice upbringing in the countryside with a family that wasnt crippled with debt or issues. Most of what i am i attribute to that.
    Other than that i just enjoy people being happy for the most part. Making friends with them i guess facilitates that in some way.

    Cheers big guy.

    Absolutely destroyed shoulders fortunatly.
    Plate loaded press
    Lateral raises from out leg
    Cable lateral raises
    Prone flies

    500kcal cardio
    Forgot to do shrugs.

    Gonna go home and stick some freeze gel on my shoulder. Little bit tender.

    All in all good workout. Day well spent as a human furnace

    I can't do anything down here this damn heatwave is putting me into chronic heat exhaustion even if sitting still and cooled by fanning I would get feverish, it's killing me.

    Heck even the ice up the mountains is melting.

    Im melting at 20 degrees Celsius. Lord be with you at your temperatures. I take it the gym is out of the question atm?

    If you wouldnt get many strange looks then i reccomend soaking your t-shirt in cold water and wringing it out before putting it on.

    Used to do it in the summer when i worked on a farm. Feels delightful

    No gym time atm no I usually train in the evening when body temp is peaking it's best I stay home and sip anything cold.

    It's not so much the temp (40° C) but the high moisture thing making it unbearable.

    Yeah I'm getting pretty weird looks because of bulging eyes and shirt plus face soaking in sweat the sort I get in winter when still wearing light clothes

    Fuck it I need to move to a cooler place I can't stand another summer like this.

    Greenland anyone?

    Try soaking your shirt. Wear a dark colour so its not obvious but you avoid nasty sweat stains too. Almost mimics the cooling effect of sweating also as the water evapourates from your skin.

    Greenland is where santa is from right? The sharks over there are fucking terrifying btw.

    We dont get the humidity problem here so i have no magical scottish remedy im afraid

    Eh dark colours attract the sunrays better than light ones, that would make it worse. I don't feel that bad in the morning btw.

    Greenland is that desert of ice lying next to Canada. No idea where Santa's from.

    Well actually, the model from which Santa derived is that of Saint Nicholas which appears to be patron of my city. His relics are hosted here. Around year 1000, local sailors departed to rescue them from the city of Myra in asia minor, after the turkish invasion.

    Since you seem to display the same level of anger as I do, we don't we both get an heavy punch bag? I think I'm going to install one at home as soon as the summer fades away. I believe it's the best kind of cardio for a male, lot of kc to be burned plus you train at throwing punches.

    Ahh yes... forgot.

    Could have sworn that is where the real santa lives. Not the one that lives in tge north pole.

    Thats interesting, never knew that. Wouldnt have pegged santa to be thr patron saint of spicy italy.

    Thats some high level trivia to know nonetheless. Props to you sir.

    I don't really like to beat ppl.

    Never liked boxing either, was thinking of starting something more practical like Krav Maga later this year.

    Sometimes i get the urge but on the whole i dont want to hurt folk. Never been in a physical confrontation in my life.

    Looks interesting. Apparantly the daddy of practical fighting styles... i think it would be hard to beat a boxer however.

    Carb cycling is a killer. Absolutely no focus on my low days. Can feel myself in a daze at traffic lights, fighting my bodies urge to sleep..

    Not good. Hard to be in the workout mindset also.

    I recall it being 12 pg/ml, which is super low for insensitive E2 assay. It could be much lower...
