Notes: Workout Notes
Took a two week break for recovery while switching gyms. This place is much closer to me, and has a better atmosphere. The only real downside to this place is that the weights by the platforms are measured in kilos instead of pounds.
Also, my deadlift numbers are down, and the leg press machine at this place is sort of awkward and definitely harder.

Notes: Workout Notes
Awesome energy, upside of the EC stack I started today. I'm running it with 16 mg Ephedrine/ 200 mg Caffeine twice a day, not as much as seems to be standard, but it should still help me.

I am not joking when it seemed like I had limitless energy. I could feel the pump better also. I've scheduled a fitness consultation before I leave my gym on tuesday next week, so I'll know bodyfat % etc then.

Got some ephedrine & caffeine to help with the cut, and my mom stocked me up on protein . Also got some slow-release stuff (for before bed), some creatine, and some BCAAs w/Glutamine for when I finish my cut and delve deeper into pure strength training. But for now, EC stack away!

My 2nd bad deadlift workout in a row My fault though, I didn't eat on my diet, and after standing around for hours on end at work arrived only to find what energy I had to burn up quickly. Saturday may be my last one of October, I can't let this be repeated.
