Lots of volume today, combined with some pretty damn heavy dips which felt amazing. The dips were absolutely full ROM, coming all the way down then exploding up. I tried to do lots of heavy tricep work with the bench from the pins and the dips, combined with the incline close grip bench for some sweet hypertrophy. I'm going to need bulletproof tris at Basic, so that's what I'm going to build.

I just finished my first meal of the day; 3 strips of bacon, 2 eggs and some cheddar cheese on one of those awesome wheat tortillas I mentioned the other day that only have 6 net carbs. The whole meal was less than 600 calories and less that 10g of net carbs. This first meal of the day took place at 6:30 in the evening. Have I mentioned that I really want to get under 200lb? I had 2 scoops of Xtend along with a scoop of Carnivor beef isolate protein as an intra-workout, so hopefully I was able to avoid to much catabolism while lifting weights after fasting over 18 hours.

Tomorrow is a teacher work day, which means I don't have to go in to work. My wife would have to work, but she's taking the day off. Not sure what we're going to do, but I plan to get some serious cardio in, now that I've been challenged to hit 199.9 by some time Sunday.
