I'm on that EC stack now. The biggest side effect is I get really impatient and irritable, but other than that I don't really notice anything.

Hit my last lifting goal for the year during todays session - 265 squat for 1. Real grinder but got it nonetheless so I'm happy. Also managed to get the same weight for 3x5 that I did for 2x5 a month ago before I deloaded due to poor form. My technique is def better now.
Have thought a bit about what I'm gonna do next year.
I wanna focus more on strength and refining my technique for the big lifts so I'm gonna swap my current 4 day modified SPBR to 3 days a week fullbody with ICF 5x5. I think the increased volume and frequency will improve my technique and help me gain weight. The only tradeoff is that I will have less time for aesthetics and correctional work, but atm I don't care much about that if I can get stronger while not injuring myself. Later down the line, I'm thinking of going back to 4 days a week with one of Mike Tuscherers RTS routines. High frequency, high intensity, low volume with pretty much only variations of the big three and some other compounds.
Also wanna be able to reach these goals before May:
- 1 RM 4 plate DL
- 5RM 3 plate squat
- 3RM 225 bench
the entire 2 hours i was there was a giant
moment. belted 3-plate 1/4 rom squatter chest-thumping between sets giving alpha staredowns was the highlight with bonus points for the gay dude miring my aryanness in the sauna who offered me drugs.
i've been so used to internet standards of lifting (not 400/300/500 = phaggot) that i didn't consider a paused 335 squat and paused 235 bench would be god-tier. between that and the stench aura provided by my rehbands, nobody bothered me.
