    Went light on the chest stuff yesterday for db flyes and bench stuff. No pain during or after. Going to try keeping up with vitamin i for a week or two and see how it does.

    I assume you already use mixed grip and chalk?

    Edit: didn't see you'd already commented on chalk

    Get some liquid chalk then. Can get it online anywhere. If worse comes to worse, you can give me money, I'll buy it and ship it to you.... phgt.

    Lol charly, one of the posters on swd was talking about how much of a beast you are at a Boston meet up on Sat. Said he'd be terrified of meeting you because you could probably eat him for breakfast...and still be hungry.

    I'd eat just about anything right now!

    But, I'm pretty friendly in person...


    ...as long as you feed me.

    5x 3x 3x two plate bench brahs, felt good to finally hit that mark. Squat's back up to 300 so 525 plus whatever my deadlift is. Further from 1000 than I want to be but making solid progress. :slayer:

    Starting to feel like a fat fuck though. Hoping to hit my goals and get a full cut in by August when I move.

    I'm 5'7", last time I weighed like a week ago I was at 188. No idea what I'll be cutting to until I'm probably a solid month into the cut to see how it all shakes out, but if I had to guess it'd probably be ~20-30 lbs from the end of this bulk to really lean out. If I hit 1000 lbs by the end of April I'll have three whole months to cut, though, which is ambitious but definitely doable.

    I think my goals to hit 1000 right now would be 250 bench, 350 squat, 400 dead lift.

    Currently doing two bench/incline days MF and one squat day W to work on developing my upper body more because it's underdeveloped compared to my legs IMO. Once I hit ~240 bench I'll switch up to squat Monday, bench Wednesday, dead lift Friday and work on getting those numbers up.

    3 sets, 5 reps, 3 reps, 3 reps. I weight up at 3x5 so next time I will probably hit that and weight up to 230.

    I usually write that as:

    225x 5/3/3

    or

    5/3/3 @225.

    Also, looks like you leapfrogged me! I'm dropping weights and just concentrating on slower reps till my elbows feel better!

    ZMA: Worth it? I'm getting into a pill taking routine for creatine (I like it in pill form), Fish Oil, Multi and Psyllum Husk flakes in water to wash it down.

    Also thinking 5-HTP (have a bottle from when I was supplementing it with certain seratonin-affecting compounds) to fight SAD.

    Don't take zma with a multi.

    It's also like creatine, in that it's been studied a whole bunch and stuff is favorable. I just started that and fish oil (3g 2x day).

    Fully aware of the studies on creatine. Definitely works for a lot of people.

    Can you link the studies on ZMA? I don't remember seeing any legitimate studies giving it a favorable review (except for those with zinc or magnesium deficiencies).
