So far so good! I’ve been continuing the dosing at 2 pills twice a day, once with breakfast and again with dinner (so usually 6AM and 6-8PM). Taking these pills with food hasn’t caused any stomach irritation or other GI discomfort problems. The sleeping issues I had described earlier were not related to TF at all and instead I chalk them up to 1) the new job and 2) my wife being pregnant who wakes up 3 times in the middle of the night to pee and 3) a little rat dog Yorkie that seems to enjoy jumping off the bed and returning five minutes later to scratch at the side of the bed so we can let him back up… only for him to jump off again half an hour later and repeat the process. Each time I have woken up in the past this week my mouth has been extremely dry so I’m trying to remedy that by drinking more water throughout the day but sometimes the offset of that is waking up to pee in the middle of the night. BW is staying relatively the same which was expected because I haven’t really tweaked my calories much. Strength is so-so at the moment. I felt GREAT during squats, but bench and deadlift had me scratching my head. I was disappointed earlier in the week with not being able to lock out a 290lbs floor press and I tweaked my back slightly doing deadlifts last night but it was tolerable and now I feel OK today with just the usual post-workout soreness. I have noticed some slight increase in vascularity which I can’t attribute to anything else besides TF which was kind of a surprise!
STANDING LAT PRESSDOWN
40×10,10 – These are a great finisher and absolutely brutal!
Ran out of time because my gym partner had to go and pick up his son. As you guys can see Condense/DPOL are treating me right. That deadlift is a PR for weight/reps and its only going to get better from here. Please give me your feedback on the vlogs… if there is anything you guys want to see filmed or have me go into detail about please let me know! Today is Saturday and unfortunately I have work this weekend and by the time I get out of work the gym is already closed so its a mandatory off-weekend !
