Tomato Head breaks his cherry tomato on Hypertrop-X (sponsored)

Well the shoulder is feeling a bit better the past few days, I have only hit weights lightly 3 days this week but have done cardio all week. Hypertrop- X has been working very well, mood is good, aggression in the gym is high, (I just wish I could use that aggression to push weight!) endurance has been off the hook. The endurance factor so far is IMO the best thing about Hypertrop-X, Going to hit weights a bit harder today to test the shoulder (chest) we'll see how it goes.

Glad it helped, it seems to give me some good sweating and good energy, add the HyX to it and the endurance from it and the gym is a nice place to be!!! And the dreaded cardio is easier.

I take it three times a day, one of the doses before workout is with the HT-X. Its awesome, the HT-X gives me endurance and a clean energy and the ephedrine kicks me up into a nice energy with good sweating and fat burning. The HT-X also seems to aid me in an easier crash from the ephedrine. I feel good for about 4 hrs after taking the two. I'm also leaning out nicely, but weight is staying the same on the scale so i assume I'm gaining some muscle.

Very nice log. I'd recommend keeping the running days every now and then so people can measure how long you've been using the HyperTrop-X. Sorry to learn about your shoulder, take care. I've noticed that with HyperTrop-X that there is such an effect that it can cause someone to push themselves past a sticking point however its important to listen to your body because I'd say this stuff can actually invigorate someone enough to the point where they could rip muscle right from the bone. This is truly a product that works. Have you gotten any headaches ? I can seem to only run 2 caps and get quite a boost. I've not used yohimbine before would extra water or carbs help with the headaches ?

Just Kidding LD, I wish I would have found this site and people like this 2 years ago! I would have saved myself a lot of money and wasted time at the Vitamin Shop and GNC. I spent so much money during that time and not a single product did half of what I am getting from Hypertrop-X and I can't even test it yet due the shoulder issues. But will very soon!

Ok, so the end of my third week on Hypertrop-X and feeling great! Endurance at the gym has been great! Seem to be more aggressive with the workouts, not able to report any gains due to the light workouts I have had to stick to but I am starting to see some more cuts showing up. I would still have to say the effect that stands out most is the endurance factor, I have never wanted to push the way I have been the past weeks or so and it has been mostly cardio! I hate cardio! One negative result is that it has not helped my Golf score
Hopefully this week I can start to add more weight to my pushing sets and begin really testing this.

Day 21 the workout.
Chest Day! and light triceps Added some weight for this workout.
Flat bench was able to 6 sets 3 at 95lbs and 3 at 135lbs 15reps each set.
Incline bench (smith machine) 5 sets, 2 light and 2 at 135 1 at 185 for 10.
close grip cable flat bench press. 4 sets max was 125/10
incline bench cable fly’s, 4 sets max was 110/9
Peck deck one burnout drop set of 50 reps.
Overhead extensions 4 sets max 80/9
Reverse grip pull down 4 sets max 135/13
Felt really good to do some weights for a change. I waited till today to post to see how my shoulder felt. The good news is no real pain! I am a bit sore but a good work out. Iced it down last night and this morning and we'll see how it feels tonight. Still as for the Hypertrop-X, I still get the endurance and we sat for shorter times between sets last night. Still had plenty of energy for cardio! Things are looking up!

06-10-2008, 09:29 PM
Wow. Yeah, I'd say you've got endurance. My hat's off to ya, man - that's enough sets and reps to make my rotator cuffs hurt!
06-11-2008, 12:35 PM
Thanks for the support guys! Hopefully I can stop talking about what is not working and focus in on what is working now!
Back and light biceps.
Same dosage as the past few days. One Ephedrine about 2 hours before, and 4 Hypertrop-X 40 min before workout. This is decently my sweet spot. I get to the gym put my I-pod on with the new Disturbed CD on it, I love Disturbed during workouts!!! Note the new Avatar. I am in the zone and ready to work. No workout partner today (had to sort his sock drawer or something) so I’m on my own. Here’s how it went.
Assisted pull-ups 80lb assist 6 sets 3 wide 3 close
Seated cable rows 4 sets max 190lb/8 (could have done more but still not ready to push it)
Cable Lat pull-downs 4 sets max 170/8
Cable Rope rear-delt rows 4 sets max 80lbs
Hammer strength seated one arm Lat pulls outer grip max 135/10
Finished off with two arm inner grip short pulls 270lbs for 12
Hyper extensions 4 sets of 12
Cable Rope Hammer curls 4 sets max 130/10
Straight bar curls 3 sets and one drop set max 105/8
Concentration curls max 35/10
15 min cardio
Felt great today, very good work out. Great pump, got myself some tan working in the yard this past weekend and wore a tank to the gym today. Good comments from people and felt great to see some separation showing up.

Off day, Took 4 Hypertrop-X and did some yard work. My yard is going to look soooo good this year using this stuff!
06-14-2008, 09:04 AM
Smith machine Military press 6 sets 3 very light and 3 with 105 so getting a bit better!
lateral dumbbell raise 4 sets max was 30lbs for 10
front dumbbell raise 4 sets with 25lbs
rear delts on the peck deck 60lbs 4 sets of 12
did 4 sets of inner and outer rotator exercises
Traps, 4 sets rear shrugs 185
4 sets dumbbell shrugs 85lbs
8 sets of abs and 15 min cardio
Once again the combination of the Ephedrine and Hypertrop_X gave me a great start to the workout and enough stamina to keep up the aggression to the very end of the work out and all the way home! Over all a great work out.
06-14-2008, 09:06 AM
Day 25 off day. I want to make sure the day after shoulders is an off day to allow for some more recovery time.
06-14-2008, 09:22 AM
Hey Laze Dragon, not sure how often you check these but I have a question for you guys over there. I really need help to cut some over body fat and keep the gains I make especially mid section fat. At my age and body comp it is really hard for me to cut. This being my number one goal this year, could you suggest something that maybe you would like to see someone stack with Hypertrop-X? I don't want to be one of these guys that runs many other supplements wile logging one for a sponsor. I will be starting my second bottle in just a few days and would like to start it when I do. Let me know, and don't think you can't just tell me to finish the log as is too. I will send this in a PM too. Thanks for the help

Getting stronger and feel like I worked chest for the first time in a few weeks. No real shoulder pain after the work out. Still hit the wall before the work out but after taking Hypertrop-X and forcing myself to go to the gym The Hypertrop-X keeps me going. I just wish I had more drive to get there.
06-18-2008, 09:23 PM
Felt like crap today. Hit the wall big time in the afternoon and decided to crash tonight. I know I'm a sissy!
06-18-2008, 11:25 PM
One thing don't run ephedrine. Ephedrine and Yohimbine = bad experience...not fun. Wait until you run off Hyper. Honestly this supp is perfect for cardio. RUN LIKE A MOFO. If you really wanna get cutting edge get Gaspari's Thermogenic Thyrotabs....there T2 derivative and will not stimulate you further than the Yohimbine. If you do that start at 2 pills per day (in regards to the Thyrotabs). They take a week to kick in.
06-18-2008, 11:28 PM
Happens to everyone. And you do have to listen to your body - when it's says "crash!", sometimes you gotta crash.
06-20-2008, 12:23 PM

Day 31 Shoulders/ Traps/ cardio
My best shoulder workout in weeks! Stopped the Ephedrine per LD”s advice and did feel better before my work out. Also seem to have a better aggression in the gym as well. I looked in to getting the Gaspari's Thermogenic Thyrotabs but can’t find them on line anywhere. Any know where I can get them please PM me.
Smith machine military press 6 sets 3 light to warm up then went to 105 for 2 sets at 12 reps each then 155 for one set of 12.
Hammer strength shoulder press machine only two set at 50 big pounds (this hurt!) so I stopped.
Dumbbell laterals 4 sets max 35/12
Dumbbell fronts 4 sets max 35/12
Pec deck rear delts 3 sets at 80lbs for 12 reps
Traps; Did a seated trap exercise that I read about on one of the logs on here I don’t remember who or I would give them credit…Sorry. You sit on the end of a bench and put your legs over the bar then bend at the hips grab the bar and do a shrug pulling the bar to your hamstrings, WOW did this hit hard! Still sore today. Only 105lbs too.
Finished off rear smith machine shrugs 4 sets max 245/8

Lets see where are we....day 40, Sorry if any of you were looking for me. My Dad has been very ill and I have been spending most of my time with the family. My little man turns 7 tomorrow so we had a big party this past weekend and my Dad did make it to the party but sadly had to be taken to the hospital yesterday again. Keeping Hope!
Workouts have been going well, must have a lot of aggression to release. Shoulder is still getting stronger, mot quite where I want to be but still working at it. Hypertrop-X has been great! Since I stopped all other sups I have more energy in the gym and out of the gym. I am down 4 pounds and leaning out pretty well. Mood has been ok but I have a lot going on right now that even Hypertrop-X can't help with. strength has been getting better. Still loving this stuff! I will try to keep up this week on the workouts.
07-02-2008, 03:46 PM
Sorry about your dad, I hope he gets better! My little guy just turned 7 this month. Happy B-day little guy!! Hang in there!

Thanks for the kind words guys.
The workouts are going great now! Once again I have to thank LD for letting me try this. I don't think I have ever had this much energy and aggression in the gym. Between family issues that are going on right now, I have a big project running through the production area right now and am spending 10hrs a day in a steel shop that the temps are running in the high 90's low 100's. After work I take my Hypertrop-X and 30 to 40 min later I am feeling like i just woke up and ready to go. It's too bad that I had the shoulder problem during this because I don't think I am really testing it as much as I could. I have dropped about 10lbs and am starting to get much more Vascular (feels great when I wake up and see that!!!) Shoulder is about 75 to 80% and I am now seeing some size again.
Did shoulders tonight and worked hard on them.
Military press 185 3 sets of 15
lateral raise 4 sets max 40lbs then drop set on last one to 20lbs
barbell front raise 4 sets max 55lbs 12 reps
front shrugs 4 sets max 305 for 8
40min cardio (thanks to Hypertrop- X)
12 sets of abs
