And about your workouts. I noticed the weight increments are really steep and intense. I've never tried anything like that where once increment alone can be 30-50 pounds. Seems to be working well for you, maybe I'll give it a shot.
Thanks bud. Appreciate it.

Yeah, it wasn't always like that for me. A slow building process, you know what I'm sayin'. But yeah bro, I usually start all my sets pretty damn light, to get loose, work out remaining soreness, the usual. Then, that's when I hit it...and the weight incriments are spread. It's always been like that for me though.

Max Lifts currently (RAW) @ 177.8 lbs.:

Squat: 455 lbs.
Bench: 320 lbs.
DL: 560 lbs.

Those are the Big 3 that I train max effort in.

Anyway, here's today's W.O.:

DONE...that's 200 movements focusing solely on the 8 pack. Done deal.

Body-Weight: 177.8 - I may get close to unchartered territory here pretty soon! With all the baseball games, and me cleaning up my diet considerably, I may get down to the lightest I've been in about 2 years. God, I hope I can get down to 164.9-165.0 even. That would be so sick.


I was not feeling it today while I watched UFC 85 (before going to work out). Stayed out WAY TOO LATE last night, and was just groggy as f-ck today. Even during the event, which normally I get pretty hyped up for. Anyway, 3 scoops of NO, and 9 oz. of water changed that! Once I got to the gym, I was all jittery and ready to go. Good times. That helped my workout intensity IMMENSELY. I love it. Good W.O. all in all though, and very happy with the pumps I felt post-W.O. Cell Mass after my DL's of course, and 8 oz. of apple juice with one scoop of Optimum! Yuuuuuum. Gotta do what I gotta do though. Anyway, back at that shit MOOOOONDAY.

Happy lifting boys.....and GIRLS!


EDIT: I FINALLY came across my RAW meet vids! I'm gonna get them on YouTube again (my previous account got hacked and f-cked with), and get them embedded on here for you, keep an eye out (for those that didn't see them before)!
