oh so much worse. The cramping I get on clen is so bad I can’t even really train


#724

So far, I have done 5 days of Ephedra, 2 days off, 3 days of albuterol. I’m going to take 3 days off again. Before jumping back into albuterol. I know it’s got a short half-life, but I still feel the effects today. Or… maybe it’s the ephedrine?

EDIT: I’m down 6lbs since I started this.


#725

I’d take longer off.

Patience, grasshopper.


#726

Legs were fried today from deadlifting and crazy cramps. Since my last OHP day was a PR decided to take it easy and do Grace. I complete just under 7:00, which is a pr. Damn my heart was racing.

Finished with some abs and arms. Am I CrossFit now?

Chest had a great pump and sore already. Proof you don’t have to do crazy shit to get a good pump, instead jus change the order of exercise. Between sets of flies and incline KB Press I did 20 ice skaters.


#729

You should probably start a thread letting everyone know that this is the best/only way to achieve a bodybuilder skin-splitting pump.


#730

Lol!! I found the secret! I’m not gonna tell until after June 1 though. They can’t know!

Sunday afternoon
3 hours of baseball practice.

Swing is money right now… although, abs are sore.

Worked up to 3x2x395lbs - this is a Current best. I went into it saying three doubles. I could have gotten 4 the first set, probably 3-4 on the second, on the last I tried for AMRAP, but 2 was the max. Lol.

Monday

Pretty much starved myself yesterday. Breakfast was a cheese stick. Lunch was 8 meatballs. Then didn’t eat dinner. I popped 50mg of Ephedrine and suffered all day. I woke up at 223, which is down 13lbs since last month.

Monday Night Workout
Front Squat
2x5x135
2x3x175
2x1x225 - had nothing in me. ha

Woke up today and had a burrito for breakfast. The plan is to eat a bird’s lunch, then have meat and veggies for dinner. I’m calling this the week of suffering. On Friday I’ll re-feed again. My attempt at @Yogi1’s harsh dieting plan.


#735

Not even close! Although I’m proud of you for trying


#736

Did I eat too much?


#737

Here’s the classic Yogi diet:

-2 meals of chicken/turkey breast, olive oil, salad leaves
-A post-workout meal of chicken/turkey breast and olive oil, this time with a little white rice
-A fourth meal of - you guessed it - same shit as your first two meals.

Sometimes turkey/chicken thigh is used instead of breast, but olive oil is subtracted accordingly. Very occasionally I’ll eat eggs. I think when I try it again next time I’ll use coconut oil as I read something about it promoting fat-burning better than other fats.

Gives about 200g protein, 80g of carbs, fill in the rest of the calories from fat to give BW x 10.

Refeed every 10-14 days.


#738

Still lifting, although not quite every day. Recent highlights were TBDLs 5x5x325lbs EMOM and a OHP day, with 5x5x175lbs. I might be able to squeak in a workout tomorrow. I have to leave early for a round trip out of town project. Not sure when I’ll get back. Then Meetings from 7-5 on Friday and a flight at 5am on Saturday.

It’s Wednesday and I’ve worked something like 43 hours.


#739

Grinders always win. Until they burn out and run out of fucks to give. Hang in there.


#740

Still been grinding. Just no time to post.

Tonight’s workout

Front Squats and TBDL
4x5/no rest break


#741

Been doing a lot more cardio in the morning. Quarter mile jog, 30 yard sprint, 30 yard jog, etc. etc. ending with quarter mile jog. I’ve had to take more albuterol :wink: to help with my ‘breathing’.

Thursday
OHP
Worked up to a very easy single at 205
.25x225 - ha, got the heel of my shoe on my trap bar as I stepped forward. I went with the set and my arms weren’t synced. Left arm lagged

.75x225 - lol couldn’t lock it out. I’ve definitely got 215 if I try. That would be a 10lb PR. Overall, my Press is increasing drastically!

Rows, Pullups, Kb Snatches

TBDL holds 3x45 seconds

Equals a 20lb PR that you just smashed! Well done mate, you can definitely go around telling all the kids that you can push 2plates over your head.
