    On the issue of SS being all legs no upper, i have to concur. Was most aesthetic doing upper/lower 4 day split. Didn't have the best numbers but people in the gym were like "looking good bro".

    I'm looking for food recommendations.

    I'm trying to cut, need my abs back.

    I'm on a budget and don't like cottage cheese.

    ...

    I'm following a program I found on t-nation and on leg days it states to do 1 hamstring primary exercise and 1 hamstring secondary exercise. (Same for quads) I had initially decided to squat and leg press but now I wasn't to replace the leg press with another set of squats. Is that fine?

    Since the same is stated for the quads, would it be fine if I did two sets of deadlift instead of one? Or the the secondary quad exercise necessary?

    I want to work on my calf well, should I fit them in on leg days?

    Any particular calf exercise you guys recommend?

    Gear is cheap as fuck, I could run pharma grade test e (norma or scherring) at 500mg a week and it would cost less per weekly injection then I spend on food per day. Assuming you don't want some hard to manufacture or exotic drug like halotestin, anavar or masteron. A 10ml bottle of 250mg/ml test e from a reputable UGL is like $30-$50 tops, even cheaper if you're willing to inject every other day and run prop. Pretty sure it's cheaper to bulk on steroids then it is naturally. I'm gonna have to spend $25 a day on food for a long fucking time to get to like 210lb or I could spend say $30 with the cost of gear and do it in 10-12 weeks and $5 a day is probably over exaggerating the cost.

    Despite all the love for soft tissue work and static stretching on here, you guys realize there's almost no science to back up the belief that it reduces injury?

    So carb nite requires gear?

    Anyone here gear free and aesthetic? That's the advice i need. Started cutting out all waste cals and its helped a lot. Abs looking great. Next step is to measure my food.

    That's nutso, you can see beat up fascia in cadavers. Also with 10 mins of soft tissue stuff before I bench or overhead press I can get an additional 10-15* of internal rotation, which would directly correlate to injury prevention. If anything it augments movements for mobility work and increases blood flow to the area.

    My comment was mostly towards the people at Supertraining.tv, a lot of people there (apparently or a marketing ploy?) are running carbnite yet still putting up huge numbers. They are all gear heads so I just make the correlation, dunno if it's actually true.

    You can run carbnite and be jacked, but you won't be strong. It comes with the territory of low carb, but at least carbnit has a re-feed. I go pretty much 0 carb four days out of the week now, I no longer have low carb headaches or weak feeling that quickly went away after a few months I guess.
