What do you do for cramps?

A bunch of wickles (pickles) a bottle of water, and some hydrocoden & strong anti-inflammatory

ever try Taurine?

I didn’t even think of that. I’ll take some today.

I have no energy, I did what I could do.

Cable presses at various weights as many reps as I could do each set.
Pec flys at 190lbs for 10-12 reps each set
Treadmill incline 45 minutes

Went ahead and did 5 sets of 10 of DB shrugs @ 120lbs and then a bunch of machine rows while the kids did jujitsu. Max got hit in the mouth and knocked his other front tooth loose. Blood everywhere. I don’t think he is ready for this.

I will try this.

So my ex tells me her “boyfriend” has been working out for the last 3 months doing 2 a days, following some plan, eating right, etc. And now he’s ripped. I asked what prompted that. She said she thinks it was me. I’m not tooting my own horn, but I knew whomever she dated was going to most likely have a problem with my appearance.

Easy day, I went heavy and hard yesterday. Especially with the night cardio.
