Glad it passed, Charlie.

I don't think mine would even show up in a pic.

I took a pic and used a dime as a size reference. Obviously it wasn't the size of a dime. lol
It wasn't even the size of a sunflower seed. Just glad to have it out and be able to get back to normal.

Biceps and abs today.

Put 135 on the cambered curls bar, started at 20 reps. Dropped the rest time between sets each set and kept curling until I could only get 5 reps.

Finished bis with preacher curls for reps. But it wasn't many...

Changed up the workout again back down to 2 sets of 12 to 15 each and raised the weights. Workout was at 0400 and I still have a good pump. Sick as it sounds I am starting to enjoy and crave the aftermath of my workouts.

Still pumped 13hrs later??? I need some of what u got!!! lol

Did some chest today. Moved "lady weight" on flat bench, as Tom would say, but managed without ANY elbow pain which was a huge victory for me. 3x10 @ 200 was smooth and pain free so I'm gonna just keep bumping it 10lbs/wk and see how it goes

Curious what everyone is using for pre-workout these days. I bought some new stuff and wound up getting a refund.

What'd you buy/return, Ken?

Anymore I'm usually using one of the two following ...

- 2 scoops MTS Ruckus / 1 scoop MTS Vasky
- 1 scoop MTS Ruckus / 1 scoop Omega War Juice / 1 scoop MTS Vasky


Pulled a double today ... just finished a heavy back session

I have about 10 in the rotation, Ken, the ones that work for me for either focus, pump or both. I've tried another 15-20 that I never went back to. I switch up every day, so I never get used to any of them.

Never tried the ones Charlie mentioned.....Charlie, can you tell a little about them?

Legs today, not much in the tank but maybe thats a good thing because it made me train smarter.

warmed up with some extensions and stiff leg db 4x12 for each exercise

front squats 5x3-5
pause front squats 5x8-10
walking db lunges 10x10

played some basektball with some young'ins... felt good to get a little run in.

Yeah, for sure Tom ...

MTS Ruckus - Betanine Nitrate based, high stim PWO. It's not clinically dosed so and is missin some regular ingredients (like Beta Alanine) it's not your typical PWO. The mental focus on Ruckus is far and away the best I've ever experienced. Most of the time a PWO just gives you a kick but this one has rly stood out to me.

Omega War Juice - Super high stim PWO. The bad thing about the dosing with War Juice is that to get a clinical dose of most things you need 2 scoops. The issue with 2 scoops is that at that point you're getting 600mg of Caffeine Anhydrous and 137mg of DiCaffeine Malate. WAY too much for me, and I'd consider myself to be pretty stim tolerant. That said, this is a favorite of biddies who are looking for a massive kick lol

MTS Vasky - Non-stim vascularity / pump argent, pure and simple. Only contains Taurine, HydroMax Glycerol, Nitrosigine & Vitamin C ... on its own it's rly not much to write home about and definitely isn't as good as a typical low/no stim PWO (like Dr Jekyll) but in concert with MTS Ruckus it's a great vascularity agent primarily and a pump agent secondarily.

If I'm feeling ok I'll just do 2 scoops Ruckus & 1 scoop Vasky ... if I'm rly dragging ass I'll do 1 scoop Ruckus, 1 scoop War Juice & 1 scoop Vasky.

For most people I know, War Juice is too much. And everyone that I've given Ruckus to says the same thing, ok pumps but mental focus like they've never experienced.

Tom (and anyone else), if you want some samples just lmk, I'm always glad to share

Thanks Charlie! I think I'll give the first 2 a try, I've already got plenty of pump PWOs in the rotation, but the other two sound intriguing.

Breast volume/rep day, just the basics and lots of 'em.

Bench press 205, 225, 245, 255, 265, 275, 285, 235, 205
Incline bench 185, 205, 225, 245, 265, 225, 185
Decline bench 225, 255, 275, (drop set) 305/275/225

Sign me up Charlie.

I'm not taking anything cray cray because I'm trying to slowly get off pwo.

Only use them for push days and sometimes pull days. Not much, maybe a scoop or even half a scoop of pwo. Trying to stay under the 300mg of caffeine threshold and something on the lines of .5-2g of beta alinine.
