2 month goal…gain up to 190 (from 182) and then switch diet to lower cal and fat intake, and increase cardio to 5 times a week, 30 mins minimum (do this for 2 months to reduce bf% in time for hte summer )

As for the grips, Ive developed good grip by doing db shrugs, and also doing wrist flexor exercises. I do 225 deadlifts with no straps, so my grip is pretty decent.

Deadlifts have increased my grip strength haha. I used to have trouble holding onto 225, now up to 295. The only time I have grip troubles is when my hands get sweaty. Chalk would help with that I assume.

I've been using Mus-L Blast... wonder if anyone has heard of this brand before?
(A Review of it) http://www.nicemuscle.com/mus-l-blast-2000-79698.htm

I've never seen it in Canada, I get it from Rite aid in Bellingham.

Been about 6 weeks since my last workout I think. And with all the nasty junk food in Japan, eating late at night right before bed, and drinking every other night, I have a LOT of work to do when I get back. Yeow!

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Went to see the doc today about my neck and sternum injury. Prescribed some anti inflammitory's and says i'll be good in a few days. I somehow doubt it, but I would be ecstatic if it was true.

3 reps I say is b etter than 1. Unless you just do that 1 as an extra set, but I wouldnt count it other wise (just do it for fun).

I went skiing today (first time! Expert snowboarder though, switched it up). Got home, tried to go to the gym, left after 30 minutes and only did some shitty sets of triceps and chest. Ah well, I tried lol.

I've always figured when it comes to soreness due to working out, going to the doctor is pointless because it will just result in "take a couple ibuprofen and take it easy for a while"

1 halibut liver oil capsul + 1 multi vitamin.

Im pretty sure taking 10 will do nothing, you are probably pissing a lot away, since your body doesnt need that much of those vitamins. Look up daily requirements, and then what each capsule contains.
