    Day-Off

    I've changed to a 3-days on/1 day off.
    Push/legs/pull/off.
    This will give me the chance to recover and preserve sleep.

    BTW,
    Try not to fly near North Florida for a few days. There's no telling when the Barbell I used today is going to come back to earth.

    Legs
    *RDL: 4 sets
    Leg Press: 4 sets
    Calf Press: 4 sets
    Cable Ab Crunch: 4 sets
    Naut Neck Mach.
    Back: 4 sets
    Side: 4 sets
    Grip Machine: 4 sets
    * I decided to alternate RDL and Front Squats. Today is the first day I didn’t do Front Squats before RDLs. My back felt stiffer for most of the day after my workout than it has when I’ve done both in the same day. Maybe the Front Squats somehow train my back to act better in the RDL?

    Sometimes you just don't have it. I've learned through experience that it's usually your body telling you that. You are going to hurt yourself or have a worthless workout. The biggest thing about this lifestyle is the mental strength to train hard, train consistent and know when to pull back and let your body heal.

    I agree with that. In fact I have taken 3weeks downtime and expected to come back weak as hell only to find I needed to add 25 pounds to my deadlift worksets etc..
    Obviously quester, you dont wanna take a big break during a competition but sometimes you can and it wont cost you a thing and in some cases just the opposite. Good luck quester. Kill it tomorrow!

    Cape,
    I'm doing good. I had a few (4) days where my discipline was more elusive than my pursuit. But, I'm keeping shit in order, I'm fighting the good fight, and my race extends well beyond this one.
    -Absolutely will I post my pics. My gains have been greater than what I expected one can receive from devotion plus a little biologic help for an old man. I ran into a buddy that I hadn't seen for more than two years and he said, "You've gotten big. What are you taking?" If he'd said it any other way, I'd of felt different. But, I just looked at him and said, "Thanks bud. You look real good!" This guy used to live next to me and take the trash out for the concierge service that takes care of the trash in the community. Wife and kids, he had kids out there with him. Solid dude, not big or boss but a good fellla. If he'd have said it any other way and I'd have said,"okay, Terry, how much time you got?"
    Then I thought about how a man can grow into a completely different person. A man whom, when he travels, everyone wants to shake his hand. However, everyone form back home only knows the boy. He could be a giant but in his village, just a kid that never got to show (especially, the people who mattered the most) who he is, really.
    ?Perhaps it would be improper to refer to myself as an old man for a while?
    I'm appreciative and obliged to the forum for what I've received.

    Good job man, I love that feeling! When someone notices what you have become it makes the effort seem like fun rather than a chore. Some random person can see me and say "damn what have you been eating?"
    That means more to me than a young attractive girl getting the floor wet when I walk by. These competitions are great, but its the individual like you that takes it serious, giving his all, that really makes this site great.
    The forum is a collection of motivated driven individuals and when you put people like that in direct competition some serious mass gets built!
    Keep pushing brother and good job!

    Mon, 26th June
    Morning: Erg 23 min
    Afternoon: Pull Day 1452-1555
    Chin-ups: 6 sets
    Sitting Horizontal Row: 4 sets
    Rev Pec Dec: 4 sets
    Ts: 4 sets (This is a cable exercise that mimics the end of a swimmer’s front crawl stroke. Hands in front of waist pulling backward just past the butt while keeping upper traps deactivated and lower traps activated.)
    Hammer Curl: 2 sets
    The Gripper!: 3 sets of 1 minute.

    I came back to the gym stronger after the time off. I'm taking short rest periods, and cutting back on the macronutrients even harder.
    My diet is
    Wake up and fasted cardio,
    work out 5 hours later, immed. post workout meal (protein shake with fruit or yogurt),
    lunch 1.5 hours after,
    dinner 3 hours later.
    I'll be receiving lesser gains but I'm counting on the GHRH/GHRP combinations to re-appropriate fat for energy to supplement the protein intake for some muscle building. At this point, I'm happy with the gains I've made and really want to shed more fat. In a month or so, I'll go back to focusing on gains.

    I used to be like that all of the time when of your age. But never refrained from punching walls... I still bear the signs on my knuckles.

    I try to hold everything in.

    Whenever something affects my mood. Its because i train too much. Because all i eat is chicken rice and stuff. Because i take dangerous supplements....

    Or so everyone else says. I dont feel like correcting people anymore

    Everything can be a factor. I will get angry if not eating enough. Stim supplements can only go to worsen that.

    Push Day 1440-1549
    Naut. Incl Bench: w-up + 2 failure sets, 1 pump set
    Cable Sh Lateral Raise: w-up + 2 failure sets, 1 pump set
    Cable Dec Fly: 2 failure sets, 1 pump set
    Arnold Press: 2 failure sets, 1 pump set
    Pullover: 3 sets
    Tricep pdown: 2 failure sets, 1 pump set
    Face pull: 2 moderate intensity sets

    I decided to switch my routine and stop going to failure for four sets. I think it just negatively impacts recovery, immune, and CNS function. I have all my info in a workout log so I should know exactly what weight to use for failure on the first working set. Endurance is great but not at the sacrifice of the other three.
