IMO the worst part is decreased appetite. Forcing down food when you don't feel hungry feels very, very odd at least to me.

Being glad that you only have three days, i.e. 5 workouts left: priceless.
How's the refeed/recovery going?

Default Good Stuff

Altogether relatively well, though I came down with a nasty cold Sunday and Monday...recovering well-enough today, though, and feeling much better altogether. Eating a lot, but trying to keep it halfway healthy if at all possible I have a couple of days worth of workouts to update in my APK log, but the overall gist was that the lifts sucked, mood sucked, aches and pains sucked, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I think we lacked the 110% mentality that Poliquin was looking for, though it might have just felt lax because of the lack of mental drive towards the end. I also wanted to actually avoid the "100% concentric failure on every set" idea, as I'm not worried so much about getting huge as I am keeping up strength and breaking some plateaus that way.

I'll update once I finish this week and start in on our program next week.

What did your supplements look like during the program? As CP originally recommended or did you tweak it?

Default Supplements

I basically followed his recommendations, though a few things were different; Surge pre/and post workout as usual, Post workout creatine, supplemental protein. BCAA's didn't come in the mail until the end of the first week, but after that we took them to the tune of 40g per workout. I never met the protein or calorie recommendations but I actually gained 5lb over two weeks, which I attribute to the BCAA's. Lots of Flameout, usually 6-8 caps a day as I had run out of Carlson's to make up the difference.

As a quick update, did a ME deadlift on Thursday of last week and went from 375 to 405 myself (which was my old max before foot surgery) while Will went from 325 to 395. Not a bad increase for 2 weeks worth of work. Snatches this morning were strong too, though not terribly heavy at 125 for 3x3. That's not bad considering I can't remember exactly the last time I did full Olympic Snatches.

Some random Parkour training yesterday felt stronger and faster than usual, though some nagging injuries are still keeping me away from 100% during dynamic movements. I'll update some more as this week goes along and I get a better feel for some of the changes.

Interesting stuff, Jesse. Do you have a link for your log? I tried to find your log on APK, but couldn't.

I hope to stop in and visit your gym later this year, if I can get away.

That would be awesome Scotty, let me know when you might be by!

I go by my Parkour-community pseudonym on the forums "gearsighted" here's the link to my log:
