Chris, congratulations on your efforts and consistency. :slightly_smiling_face: You’re a great example of what a difference we can make in our own lives.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #130

Thanks Doug. I guess I just found that I enjoy feeling good, lifting heavy and getting jacked so much that it keeps me committed. No idea why it took so long to get here but grateful I’m at this point regardless. Your kind words mean a lot, thank you again.

I may switch it up- I think the amount of volume I’m putting my joints through is starting to wear. I have plenty of stamina to complete the lifts but it’s been quite a few weeks now and my elbows and knees are beginning to hate me.

I think starting next week, barring any other major changes in my brain, I’ll run PHAT. Layne is alright.

Good news, today my knee is feeling a lot better. Hoping that the reduced volume/increased intensity will do it some good. That and a little more paying attention to how my joints are tracking.
