Unplugged from most interwebz, tv and all dat.
Follow no legit program.
Though doing the Incline DB's and the wide grip neck smith machine guillotine press for high reps and lots of time under tension with the mind muscle connection is starting to protrude the pecs. More than anything ever encountered.
For the first time Did the bent over laterals cheating for the delts. Did the overhead triceps extension and lying triceps extension. Shock stimulus?
Follow no diet. Just aiming 3000-4000 calories. Drop it down to 2.5kish with a fat emphasis on rest days. Literally eat 1-2 meals.. splurged at a sushi buffet and just had pilav. Large portions fo course. Very large portions.
In the best shape of my life. Doing hill sprints in the morning too... damn hamstring burn.
And to think I structured that sh!t and tried to get that down to a science. Starting to simplify and apply the pareto principle in everything 80/20.
Meditate at night for 30 minutes too. Perhaps, it's the higher qualtiy sleep. perhaps its the sun. Whatever it is it's working.
Keep up the good work fellas.
Let's all pack at least 7 lbs of lean mass this year.
By the way why are we restricting fitness to simply muscle mass?
Isn't fitness an ORGANISMS ABILITY TO SURVIVE, THRIVE, and PROSPER IN ITS DESIGNATED ENVIRONMENT.
Why don't we add
Finances (life's a jolly river when you're floating as opposed to doing a violent butterfly yeah?)
Mindset (Present and flowing and being thoughtless is the way to be)
Fashion (Peacock's and they feathers; snowshoe hares and their lustry amber coats coming off a winter)
Emotional Health (yall got a pep to your step)
to the mix, since that's also a mark of "fitness."
For starter's if you're in a sh!tty mood I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY advise you learn this ancient Chinese trick to make yourself feel good.
What's best is to get into a meditative state and imagine a white light slowly rejuvenating each part of your body. It's cash baby. Kinda hippy sounding but like yoga it's got tangible effects.
