I gotta say, I wasn’t really feeling the workout today. Every now and then, when the 6th day rolls around, I can tend to get that feeling of “Ah, what if I just hung out in bed and watched Tosh.0 instead?”. Of course, anytime I get that feeling I have to punish myself in some manner at that gym. It’s as if I’m telling myself;
“Oh? You wanna bitch out? That’s fine, and by fine, I mean suck it, punk, you’re gonna have to set a PR today.”
When ever you feel like you don’t want to hit the gym, provided it’s not due to an injury, just do it. Just get the fuck up, and do it. Why? Because you’ll never regret a workout. Ever. I don’t like squatting. I know, it’s sacrigue to say such a thing, but I’m just not a fan. I’d rather be benching, or doing bent-over rows, or dips. So, when it’s the second day of the week I’m squatting, and I wake up at 1am, knowing full well I gotta get up and squat, it can be tough to get up. But you do it. And every time I’m under that bar, I’m so damn glad I did it. You will too. Always remember, you never regret a workout.
Alright, now let’s get on with the show…

Greetings, all. Today I’ve got my second pull workout for the week, which I tend to use more machines for, and save the free weights for the first pull workout of the week.
Before we get to that, I wanted to offer up a tip for shoulder pain during a workout. Alright, let’s say you’re working shoulders, doing rounds of lateral raise dropsets. You know that unbearable pain you get in your shoulders? For me it’s worse than any other muscle pain one can get from intense work. Well, I’ve discovered a way that will alleviate it instantly.
When your shoulders start to burn, either walk up to the dumbell rack, or set up an incline bench that’s a little higher than where your hands rest. Now, take your hands, rest them on the bench or rack, and lean into them a little bit. It’ll completely alleviate the pain, as it prevents your arms from putting the normal amount of strain on your shoulders, and allows them to rest up. Give it a shot next time they’re burning so bad that you’re about to head-butt the leg-press machine. Which doesn’t even make sense, but those shoulders can freaking hurt.
Alright, on with today’s workout….

New video up at the Fat Buff INC channel. This time around I take a look at a steroid transformation done by a bodybuilder in less than a year. He took a 13 drug cycle, and packed on decades worth of gains in a year.
Fat Buff INC – Massive 1 Year Steroid Transformation
There’s a video he did afterward where he explains his entire stack, but his labored breathing shows one of the signs of abusing steroids. He also screwed up one of his arms and was out of training for a while because he struck a nerve in his triceps while injecting synthol.
Now, I respect the guy’s hustle 100%. I don’t care what a person does if they’re honest. I think steroids are A-OK. However, if you’re going to do them, don’t abuse them. Use’em within reason and play it safe. However, synthol is flat out stupid. For those who don’t know, synthol is an oil that some bodybuilders inject into their muscles to tive them more shape & fullness. I’m sorry, but I can’t respect that at all. Synthol is absolute bullshit. It’s not bodybuilding. It’s the absolute antithesis of it. There’s no hard work involved, and it’s complete smoke & mirrors.
I’m not judging anyone who uses synthol, it just goes against everything I believe true bodybuilding, powerlifting & hard work stands for.
Greetings, all. Today I’m posting the leg workout I did earlier this morning. I didn’t label it power-building like my other workouts, because I don’t start it off with a heavy compound, and don’t change up the amount of sets too often.
I use to start off with heavy squats, however, I’ve been doing squats in the 5-rep range for a year now. I want to start hitting higher rep range to build more muscle in my legs.
On top of the workout, I’d like to talk about one of the most popular supplements of all time; creatine.
Alright, let’s get it…

Greetings, all. Today I’ve got my first pull workout of the week.
When you see something like “60SRP” it means ’60 second rest period’. All of my workouts start out with a heavy compound lift, done powerlifting style. Then all other lifts are done bodybuilding style, with the rest periods becoming shorter & shorter, ramping up the intensity.
Let’s get it…
