Lolz I gotta get some bread first. I've been training really hard and joining classes at this gym I've been going to (not your regular commercial gym though. Stuff and equipment's legit and they pride themselves in being called "sports performance center") coz I really want to work part time there. My best friend was interning there and after a couple months started getting paid. Aside from that though, what they do is amazing and while I still can, it'd be great to experience working there and doing another thing I love to do while helping people out.

And Olympic Bars work well there too since the ends can roll and stuff.

Octagon plates oh how I loathe thee. I can never get in a rhythm with them when deadlifting. I'm back in San Diego for the time being and the closest gym doesn't have any bumper plates at all

Ab wheels are 10 bucks. Pretty sure you could scrounge that up.

What's up with octagon plates? How do they differ from regular olympic steel plates?

Just curious, I've never used them.

Pretty much. When I use the Ab wheel. I feel like my stomach is going to rip apart. Sh!t is intense.

Not here they ain't. And I just need to bring up my bank again. Trying to save up every bit of allowance I can get just for the sake of saving plus I still got a TRX here that I can do the rollouts on somewhat. Plus crawling, except that you can only go as far as the straps go, of course. Nevertheless that shit's awesome though.

Fair enough. I was young and broke at one time too. There are definitely exercises that mimic that ab wheels movement. Train on brah!

Cut is going great, lost a lot of fat and some inches off my waist and strength hasn't dropped much at all. Should be down to about 12% body fat and 215-220lbs by 2nd or 3rd week of June.

When putting the bar back down on deads the corners make the plates land at a weird angle and bar is put out of place so I (not sure about anyone else) have to roll the bar back, get it even, and go through my set up again. It still works, but its pretty frustrating for me as I like the rhythm that normal bumper plates allow me to get in on deadlifts.

Never tried any 'Mass Gainer'. The only sups I take are Pre-workout, Protein (New Zealand brand, thanks Mamba ) and started taking creatine about a month ago. (Usually cycle off it after summer is over). I'd consider a Mass Gainer maybe in the off season, but not during summer, personally. Cause of my body type. If I was skinnier, I'd probably consider it.

Let us know how it works for you.

I hear ya. I like how it keeps my muscle looking full, which is the reason I like it in the summer. Soon as I go off it, I deflate like a balloon. lol
