  1. Thanks, really appreciate that, unfortunately this is the end of this log. It has been a wonderful experience while it lasted, I thank you and everyone else on this forum for being supportive and encouraging! May you all succeed in your endeavours!
  2. Today: I didn't get to sleep last night therefore today was pretty shocking (workout wise).

  3. Okay, will do! Yeah, I was going to get Ethel Ester or Tri/Di Malate, but Layne Norton said that I am better off to get a cheap micronized creatine monohydrate as these days he said that supplement companies think they can get away with making these new forms of creatine by binding them with other stuff, when they work no better than the origional. Plus Creatine monohydrate (micronized mono as well) has the most science and bodybuilders backing it on its effectiveness and how it doesn't bloat them.

  7. Nice work, the delts are definately getting rounder and I can see some separation in between the front and side delts! Traps appear to be getting longer as well.
  8. Fruit, lean protein (usually limit fats here as they require your body to work harder on digesting it). Some meal ideas: Homemade Hummus and crackers jam on toast a couple of apples, bananas or any other fruit that you like. a protein shake A glass of low fat vanilla/chocolate soy milk
  9. Just bought 5kg (11lbs of Soy protein isolate; half vanilla and half chocolate) and 1kg of micronized creatine monohydrate all for AU$106.97 (that is including the postage which was AU$9.00). Woohoo, can't wait til the creatine arrives
