Eight Week Mass Attack: Day 5!

Arm day. I had a trouble getting sleepy last night so I played a little XBOX until I was sleepy. I don't know what contributed to the restlessness, because I didn't eat anything out of the ordinary.

All-Out 8-Week Mass Attack. No Holds Barred.
Day # 5 of 56 - 01-18-01

Arm day. I had a trouble getting sleepy last night so I played a little XBOX until I was sleepy. I don't know what contributed to the restless ness, because I didn't eat anything out of the ordinary. But once I was able to get to sleep I slept well but 4:30 am came much earlier than I wanted it to. Thank goodness it's the weekend because I need some rest and recoup time.

My arms were swollen big time today. The pumps I am having are great. I have had people that I see on a daily basis tell me it looks like I have gained some size. That is the best tool for judging if what you are doing is working so with all the attention I have received I know this stack is working great. Well now it's time for my 2 off days, they are much needed. So until Monday, take care.

I strive to be the best, not just my best but also the best period.
