Looks interesting:
wow cow ice cream

When eating WowCow! remember, its all natural, there's no fat,
no cholesterol and less than 10 calories per ounce. Best of all,
WowCow! has no milk or milk solids The base is made with
delactosed whey and can be enjoyed by most lactose intolerants.
WowCow! is sweetened naturally with real fruit fructose.
While the fructose sweetening is not a real plus, there are only 4 grams of sugars per cup serving (and as noted, no fat).

Thanks for the link cursor . Well looking at the nutrition facts there's nothing really redeeming about it, but I love ice cream and havent been able to have any. So this is good for me, doesnt mean i'll be going there daily but definitely a good alternative. :

Damn man you're a good bit stronger than I thought, nice work! Really impressive man. Keep up it up. :

4 plates on t-bar rows isn't bad at all!

243.6 today, Good water yesterday, but had a real crappy meal at chiles fairly late last night w/ my pops, so that wasnt good, but I'm seeing improvements all over my body despite an actual drop in weight. Yesterday I worked Shoulders and Traps.

Shoulders:

Standing Military Press BB:

55 x 12
95 x 12
135 x 7
125 x 10
95 x 10

Rear Delts (Bent Raises) DB's:

40 x 10
55 x 8
70 x 12

My rear delts are getting much stronger, I think it has to do with the increase in back work that I've done, I'll need to up the weight next time.

Seated Military Press DBs:

45 x 10
55 x 10
70 x 6 Pretty sure thats a PR for me

Front Raises BB:

45 x 12
55 x 12

Shrugs BB:

135 x 10
225 x 10
315 x 6

Holy crap, this tore my traps apart, they are sooo sore today, felt awesome though.

Abs:

Weighted Decline Situp:

25 plate x 15
25 plate x 20
35 plate x 15

Cable Twist:

60 x 10
80 x 10
80 x 10

MonStar: Bout time you finally realized it haha, j/k. Just a question on the ghetto rows, what do you do so the v bar doesnt tare into your wrists? My guess is its probably unavoidable, so I just snarl and spit on myself until I'm pumped and ready to go, lol.

Cursor: That would be a great idea. Tasting is believing, man its sooo good. I think even taken home and blended with a scoop of protein it'd be great, hmmm, thats a great idea! I'll try it out and tell you how it works :

Woah I am not sure how you're doing them bro. Hmmm, let me try and explain. Basically I am on one side of an Olympic barbell. From that point I load the 45's on one side, obviously, and put the other side of the BB against the wall. Then I use a directly below the plates, right at the gritty part, the start of the barbell (and not where the plates load). Then from there I stradle the BB, and sit back with the weight arching my back, and pulling the v-bar to my sternum area. The 45's come to my pecs or so. The ROM is pretty short but the midback/lat contractions are friggin' incredible.

I am going to attach a sh*tty job I just did in paint, lol, see if this helps any:

243.6 lbs this morning. I'm pretty pumped I havent gone up over the weekend because this was one of the worst ones diet wise I've had in awhile. Drank friday and saturday night, had pizza late saturday night. I also went to a buffet for a whopping 2 and 1/2 hours on saturday with my friends and went out to eat again last night, wow, no good. But I did drink a ton of water all weekend which was about the only healthy thing I did. Today I'm doing chest and triceps, I'll post my workout later.

AC, you're making my pants get tight, haha. Ya, I'll pull the string from between my legs and suck it up, thanks always, for the great advice....

weighed in at 243.2. Weight hasnt changed much lately but everything is looking more defined. I'm happy with the improvements so far. Perhaps tommorow I'll take some new measurements because i'm pretty sure theyre different.

Ok, I did some measurements and a weigh in this morning for an update, and I was totally surprised, pleasantly...Check it.

March 17th

Height: Still 6'3"
Weight: 245 lbs
Waist: 39.6"
Chest: 44.5"
Bicep: 16.25"
Neck: 16"

April 7th

Weight: 241.6 lbs
Waist: 38.5"
Chest: 43.5"
Bicep: 16.5"
Neck: 16

I'm very pleased with the loss on my waist since March 17th, the arm has improved slightly, I've added more volume and intensity to all of my lifts as is fairly apparent in the log. Neck and Chest is just about the same which is good. My chest measurement went down a little but my chest is looking more defined and fuller, I think i'm losing some fat off my back and around the outside of my pecs, I'm positive I havent lost any actual muscle there, starting to really come together!

Chest is down an inch, but so is your waist, so I guess it somewhat evens out. I don't even bother taking measurements anymore because mine change so much. Depending on my carb intake, etc. It's so frustrating for me. I use the mirror and progress pics as a gauge. Ever consider posting some pics bro?
