    So today is my birthday... do I give myself a break? FCK NO!!! Kicked off the day with early morning high volume leg training:

    Weighted Hyperextensions: 10x8
    Sets 1-10: 35lbs x 8

    Zercher Squats: 10x8
    Sets 1-10: 135lbs x 8
    Note: Gotta keep this one light weight due to the awkward bar placement and weight distribution, requiring much more core stability vs. traditional squats. Will bump this to 155lbs next week however, and see how many sets I can take it through.

    Barbell Calf Raise: 10x8
    Sets 1-10: 185lbs x 8
    Note: Will be bumping weight next week, likely 225lbs. Today I was more focused on strict and slow movement vs. just bouncing up and down

    3 exercises, 2 of them relatively easy - seems like a weak workout, right? No way. Those squats killed me!!

    Bahahaha!!! I sound like a complete asshole!!! I should have let you have the cake. I'm more relaxed these days (and my waistline proves that)... I think the issue was you had just started getting serious, and I didn't want that to derail you. Once you get really settled in to a routine, a cheat day/bday thing shouldn't derail, but in the beginning, it's very easy. Was looking out for you... and look at you now. Methinks I did right by you lmao!! But yea - a dick nonetheless.

    Definitely. Gotta get that blood flowing, especially when your workout starts at 6am like mine. I'll do 5 mins of anything cadrio intensive... kettlebell swings, step ups, box jumps, etc.

    It's great!!! Requires a bit of effort with regards to prep (washing veggies, cutting them into manageable sizes, etc) and cleanup, but it's worth it IMO. I'm forever lacking in the veggie dept. too, so this is a great way for me to get plenty of good stuff. Of course I'd rather eat the veggies whole, but something is better than nothing, and before juicing, I was getting virtually nothing.

    It's hard to tell right now man... my diet isn't good so it's tough to say what's what. The truth will come out in the spring when I start my cut. We'll see how much actual muscle I've put on, and how much fat was really there. I'll be very happy if I can cut to 10% and stay over 190lbs.

    I saw something at my supplement shop, hasn't looked into it a whole lot, so it may be a bust, but it's worth looking into, it's called cytogreen I think. It's a vegetable supplement

    lol, he was asking about the juicing machine.

    But while we're on the topic of 'green powders', I've used and like Macro Greens from Macrolife Naturals. Their other product is great as well - Miracle Reds. Great stuff, but pretty costly.

    Yeah I know, he was saying he wanted to make veggie juice cuz he was lacking in the veggie department. Just putting a possible alternative out there for him, he may have known about them as u do, but in case he didn't and didn't wanna go through the hassle of juicing veggies. I really need to eat more veggies myself, but there are very few I can tolerate lol

I really need to eat more veggies myself, but there are very few I can tolerate lol

    Yea man, i'm not a veggie person... AT ALL. Green powders and/or juicing are both Godsend's for me.

    Yeah I should prolly do one or the other, but in all my 27 years lol, I've eaten very minimal veggies and everything is in line, I think anyway lol. I think I'm just meant to b carnivorous, not omnivorous lol however since starting this IF diet I have been a lot less frequent on the BM's. thinking bout just dropping some fibersure in my shakes instead lol
