    On a different note, yay for shoulders! I took a look at your progress pics, and even after a week you can totally tell the difference, however small it may seem.

    I should be updating my pictures tonight, should be interesting to see how things go.

    Question though- Why do you prefer (or maybe you don't, but I'll ask it this way anyway) barbell row vs dumbbell row?
    Hm, I have to try that with gummy bears. Gummy Bears are my fave. My department teases me about how I can just eat the entire bag in one seating. Well, they're good. *shrug*

    Thanks =) Well, you need both. Depends on what you're doing. There's times when you want to just work on one arm to "catch up" with the other. But you need the barbells to make sure that you're keeping both symmetrical. Symmetry is key and one of the biggest challenges in the sport.

    Yeah that's not chili powder. It's a very awesome powder! You may be able to find it in an Asian market. A buddy of mine sends me goodies from home at least twice a year. I got a stock pile of Li hing mui powder.

    Yay, finally some break time. This morning was a whirlwind of activities. Started the day "late" since I stayed up til 2 last night writing up a paper about Coca-Cola's branding and innovation. It was an interesting topic so I didn't regret it. But waking up was another story.

    I made sure to take my morning supplements with me prior to running out the door and racing to get to work. I managed to stick a rice cake in my mouth while trying to manuver my car through the highway. I definitely would not recommend trying to eat while driving especially when your ride has stick shift. So I suppose Meal#1 is 2.5 rice cakes and a protein shake that I managed to whip up in my office before trying to get ready for a meeting with my managers.

    Meal#2 and Meal#3 consisted of splitting up a dish of 2 c. of brown rice, 8 oz. of chicken, 2 c. of green beans, and 10 hot banana peppers. Yum! I took in my BCAA, L-Carnatine, and CLA.

    I think I'll be doing that more often during work days since it makes it easier to split up a meal and not think about making another one til I'm done. Work has just gotten more demanding but more exciting too.

    Meal#4 and Meal#5 consists of 2 sweet potatoes, 1.5 c. of sweet peas, and 8 oz. of steak.

    Snack is 1 scoop of whey, 1 tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 slice of pineapple with cinnamon. I'll also be taking BCAA, L-Carnatine, and CLA.

    Pre-Workout - Juggernaut

    Water Intake Goal: 1.5 gallons.

    Today's Leg Day so I'm really excited to be hitting the gym.

    I was reminded today that consistancy is key when it comes to influencing others to be healthier. My sales manager (I have 2 managers) even dropped in to take a peek on what I'm eating for the day. I noticed that he's been munching on healthier snacks more recently. I also have a couple of co-workers come the office, beaming with pride that they've been good for the last couple of days with their diet. And one other co-worker I have who's dubbed as a health nut is always excited to figure out what I'm cooking up for the next meal.

    The business environment isn't the most conducive environment regarding being active. But with consistancy and a little bit of tweaking here and there, it's possible to still have a fit lifestyle. I wonder if I can convince our VP to allow us to sit on exercise balls. Work out the core and (more to the company's interest) prevent us from falling asleep in our desks b/c we'll find ourselves ont the floor otherwise. Any ideas on how to promote this?

    It's hard to keep pushing forward when you're not getting the results that you've been looking forward to. But last night, it hit finally hit me that my consistant hard work is finally paying off and I'm seeing the results. Others would say that they've seen it for some time. But since I'm very critical with myself, it's easy to overlook my little achievments and see all the flaws.

    Last night, I trained really hard. Although it is my favorite type of day - Leg Day, we've been working on muscles that I haven't trained for awhile. Lately, we have been triggering the inner quads and glutes. I haven't trained those muscles for so long that I keep cramping up. But instead of quitting, I just kept going - knowing that the more and harder I train, the easier it would get.

    While I was training, I looked at myself at the mirror and saw muscles bulging in places that I want to be in. Now, the only challenge is to have them bulge out when I flex even when I don't have dumbbells with me. Ah, the beauty of muscle fibers rippling just beneath the skin, twitching as they are under pressure. But it's only the beginning.

    Here's my workout from last night:

    Front squats:
    45x15
    55x15
    65x15
    65x20

    Leg extention:
    40x15
    45x12
    55x12
    65x12

    Standing Leg Curl:
    10x15
    15x12
    25x12
    25x15

    Lying Leg Curls - Full+half curls = 1 count
    30x12
    30x12
    30x15

    Donkey Carry with Smith Machine
    50x20
    70x15
    90x15

    Sumo Deadlifts
    65x12
    65x12
    65x15

    Kickbacks w/ Smith Machine
    50x15
    50x15
    50x20

    Hip Thrust w/ Barbell on hip
    65x15
    65x15
    65x20

    Step-ups with using 20 lb dumbbells in each hand
    20x12
    20x12
    20x12

    Superset:
    3 sets of using 2 step-ups, jumping and landing in a sumo squat, superset with 1 step-up, jumping and landing in a sumo squat

    I'm 11 weeks out for my competition. Which means that I'm working on leaning out soon and in my 8th week, I'll be starting in cutting down carbs. So, I decided to go ahead and get Phenyl Core. Has anyone else use this? How do you like it?

    NoCg3Joke is using phenyl core, you should ask him-

    I completely empathize with you as far as not seeing results, especially if you're going on stage. Most of the time, its side by side comparisons that you may notice, weeks apart. Sometimes, you smash a personal record. Sometimes, you just feel overall better... Hard work ALWAYS pays off.

    I know I keep saying "keep it up. " but if you keep on keeping on, things will work out.

    I finally saw my quads yesterday for the first time ever. Little victories!

    It's almost like the Donkey calf raise - where you put the weights on your lower back but you're squatting, using your hamstrings and glutes instead of your calves. Hm, I may have to make a video of this exercise. I don't see it in the internet. >.<

    I know I keep saying "keep it up. " but if you keep on keeping on, things will work out.

    I finally saw my quads yesterday for the first time ever. Little victories!
    Ahhh, thanks =) I'll be asking him. Yep, must celebrate all of the victories!

    I love working out the quads. I admit that I've been slacking off with them until lately when I decided it's finally time to get back since my main focus earlier this year is getting a bigger upper body. But last season, they're the reason why I got noticed so I have to make sure that they're back on track too!

But since I'm very critical with myself, it's easy to overlook my little achievments and see all the flaws.

    Last night, I trained really hard. Although it is my favorite type of day - Leg Day, we've been working on muscles that I haven't trained for awhile. Lately, we have been triggering the inner quads and glutes. I haven't trained those muscles for so long that I keep cramping up. But instead of quitting, I just kept going - knowing that the more and harder I train, the easier it would get.

    While I was training, I looked at myself at the mirror and saw muscles bulging in places that I want to be in. Now, the only challenge is to have them bulge out when I flex even when I don't have dumbbells with me. Ah, the beauty of muscle fibers rippling just beneath the skin, twitching as they are under pressure. But it's only the beginning.

    Here's my workout from last night:

    Front squats:
    45x15
    55x15
    65x15
    65x20

    Leg extention:
    40x15
    45x12
    55x12
    65x12

    Standing Leg Curl:
    10x15
    15x12
    25x12
    25x15

    Lying Leg Curls - Full+half curls = 1 count
    30x12
    30x12
    30x15

    Donkey Carry with Smith Machine
    50x20
    70x15
    90x15

    Sumo Deadlifts
    65x12
    65x12
    65x15

    Kickbacks w/ Smith Machine
    50x15
    50x15
    50x20

    Hip Thrust w/ Barbell on hip
    65x15
    65x15
    65x20

    Step-ups with using 20 lb dumbbells in each hand
    20x12
    20x12
    20x12

    Superset:
    3 sets of using 2 step-ups, jumping and landing in a sumo squat, superset with 1 step-up, jumping and landing in a sumo squat

    I'm 11 weeks out for my competition. Which means that I'm working on leaning out soon and in my 8th week, I'll be starting in cutting down carbs. So, I decided to go ahead and get Phenyl Core. Has anyone else use this? How do you like it?

    Crazy leg routine you have here, I love leg days! I can relate regarding pushing forward even when the results aren't coming up. You just have to stick your mind to it, see where your weakpoints are, and break through. It took me a while to break through my last plateau, but I wouldn't give up. Good luck on the rest of the competition. Your progress looks great so far.

    Have you seen any difference using the PhenylCore?

    I posted a reply on my page to you regarding the supplement.. not sure if you read it, i re-edit it with slightly 'more' info... still though, it's currently a toss up for me as to what I see in it.

    Might need more time to evaluate it.

    by the way, KEEP ON GOING...motivation comes in many forms, and your logs do motivate so don't stop! GOOD LUCK IN YOUR CONTEST TOO!!

    I love working out the quads. I admit that I've been slacking off with them until lately when I decided it's finally time to get back since my main focus earlier this year is getting a bigger upper body. But last season, they're the reason why I got noticed so I have to make sure that they're back on track too!

    I made sure to take my morning supplements with me prior to running out the door and racing to get to work. I managed to stick a rice cake in my mouth while trying to manuver my car through the highway. I definitely would not recommend trying to eat while driving especially when your ride has stick shift. So I suppose Meal#1 is 2.5 rice cakes and a protein shake that I managed to whip up in my office before trying to get ready for a meeting with my managers.

    Meal#2 and Meal#3 consisted of splitting up a dish of 2 c. of brown rice, 8 oz. of chicken, 2 c. of green beans, and 10 hot banana peppers. Yum! I took in my BCAA, L-Carnatine, and CLA.

    I think I'll be doing that more often during work days since it makes it easier to split up a meal and not think about making another one til I'm done. Work has just gotten more demanding but more exciting too.

    Meal#4 and Meal#5 consists of 2 sweet potatoes, 1.5 c. of sweet peas, and 8 oz. of steak.

    Snack is 1 scoop of whey, 1 tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 slice of pineapple with cinnamon. I'll also be taking BCAA, L-Carnatine, and CLA.

    Pre-Workout - Juggernaut

    Water Intake Goal: 1.5 gallons.

    Today's Leg Day so I'm really excited to be hitting the gym.

    I was reminded today that consistancy is key when it comes to influencing others to be healthier. My sales manager (I have 2 managers) even dropped in to take a peek on what I'm eating for the day. I noticed that he's been munching on healthier snacks more recently. I also have a couple of co-workers come the office, beaming with pride that they've been good for the last couple of days with their diet. And one other co-worker I have who's dubbed as a health nut is always excited to figure out what I'm cooking up for the next meal.

    The business environment isn't the most conducive environment regarding being active. But with consistancy and a little bit of tweaking here and there, it's possible to still have a fit lifestyle. I wonder if I can convince our VP to allow us to sit on exercise balls. Work out the core and (more to the company's interest) prevent us from falling asleep in our desks b/c we'll find ourselves ont the floor otherwise. Any ideas on how to promote this?




    Lmfao at your last quote!! Girl I can picture you doing squats at your desk and dips on your chair hahaha
    I couldn't agree more with consistency people often get very impatient and give up, wondering why they're not seeing overnight instant results! You clearly have your priorities locked down you lead by setting an example!! One of My jobs is working in a bar/ restaurant, where I am a waitress/ bartender. Needless to say, I'm surrounded by fried food and lots of alcohol!! The same people who used to make fun of my healthy habits and structured eating are now the same people that ask me for advice now I bring in protein pastries for them almost every week hahaha

I always get stronger every time I do exercises that triggers the same parts. I've been concentrating on upper body so much that it makes me sad that I'm not as strong with my lower body. But I know that since I've started pounding on the lower body, I'll be exceeding my previous records. It's just a pride thing, I suppose when you're used to knowing how much you can lift and have to go down a bit. But of course - SAFETY first! It wouldn't do anyone any good if you end up injuring yourself because you went up too fast. One thing for sure though, when I started taking BCAA, I was able to "keep" my muscles. It was a big struggle last season because even when I ate so much protein, I keep losing my shoulders >.< It almost seemed that my quads wanted to keep all of the muscles so my shoulders couldn't have much. LOL!
    The 4Cs? Can you please elaborate?

    I'm in figure =)
    Thank you so much for your response, there is so much good info here!! Also, you have such a nice physique I kinda just figured you could go either way with bikini or figure
    What's crazy is that I have literally never taken ANY supplement consistently, other than vitamins and whey- now that I am taking infinite labs juggernaut, bcaas, and glutamine- I'm a believer. I have been worrying a lot about losing the much hard earned muscle I've been building- I'm naturally little and lose muscle FAST! Your legs are awesome, and I'm JEALO!! My calves are diesel, but my quads suck. Anyhow, I'm seeing that I'm actually still able to make GAINS while dieting, with supplement help. Ecstatic !! Your shoulders are greedy, tell them to share the protein with leggies!!! How often do you train legs? Your routine kicks ass, I might have to try and take a page out of that book
    4Cs: Carb Cycling (like its a job haha- just posted my new carb cycle!)
    Cottage Cheese- 1/4-1/2 c every night before bed!! Usually with some whey for flavor.. I swear it's, like, the secret! I'll have to cut it out soon though. I'm 6 weeks out currently
    What's on your workout agenda today??

    I posted a reply on my page to you regarding the supplement.. not sure if you read it, i re-edit it with slightly 'more' info... still though, it's currently a toss up for me as to what I see in it.

    Might need more time to evaluate it.

    by the way, KEEP ON GOING...motivation comes in many forms, and your logs do motivate so don't stop! GOOD LUCK IN YOUR CONTEST TOO!!
    I just started with it today, so can't tell the difference yet =) But I'll let you know within a week. Thanks a bunch. It really helps to know that logging in info helps =)
