    Noles1 & Ironmaglabs 1-Andro Rx - rut-roh, watch out!


    First and formost - let me thank Ironmaglabs for selecting me to be a product tester for their new supp 1 Andro Rx (click link for info) ---- should be GREAT!!! So basically - thanks you guys - you rock.

    1-Andro Rxô Pro-Hormone

    This will be my first bout with a PH and I'm stoked to see where it leads.

    I started taking the caps yesterday the 9th, at 400mg p/day, and will take that amount for a week and then bump to the full 600mg p/day. That is simply to help me get a couple of extra days out of it.

    I did my Friday back workout on Saturday this week due to schedule issues.

    My workout split is: CHEST/TRICEPS/SHOULDERS on Monday, LEGS on Wed, and BACK & BICEPS on Fridays. I usually do a long bike ride on Saturdays or Sundays, ranging from 20 to 40 miles. I'll get in a couple other cardio sessions and a round of golf each week as well. I'll run once in a while, but I really hate doing it. LOL.

    Other Supps I'll be taking: Animal Pak daily, ZMA before sleep, BCAAs and creatine. I try to get all of my protein through food, but will have a shake if needed here and there. I'll eat 4-5 times p/day and bracket my workouts with my carb meals.

    Sadly, I'll be giving up beer for a few weeks - just to ensure this cycle gets a full shot at being effective.


    I'll weigh in, take measurements, etc. Monday morning and post them all up.

    Oh yeah...let's do this Nole!! You road cycle for cardio as well. It makes it so much more enjoyable doesn't it? Can't wait to see how we both go with this...

    MONDAY!

    OK - right off the bat - bad morning, as I overslept and chose to skip breakfast so I could rush to the gym and get my W/O in. I hate lifting on an empty stomach, but it is what it is today.

    FLAT BB:
    w/u sets
    225 x 10
    255 x 5, 5, 4, 4, 3.....probably had a rep left in each of the last couple sets, but with no spotter chose not to. This is the one big drawback about working out alone.
    WG - 225 x 6 very slow reps at the end....

    Also - did a 1 rp max after the first set of 255, even got someone to spot, just to see where I am, I haven't maxed in months. I jacked my shoulder up last November, but its good now. I got 295 once, fairly easy. We'll try again at the end of this run. My best ever is 320.

    DB INCLINE:
    80 x 6 x 4 sets

    RGBP:
    165 x 8 x 4 sets

    V-Bar pressdowns:
    65 x 15 x 4 sets

    SEATED MIL PRESS:
    135 x 6 x 3 sets

    REAR DB FLYES:
    30 x 10 x 4 sets

    DB FARMERS WALK:
    30 steps out and 30 steps back w/75s in each hand - 3 sets.

    CLEAN AND PRESS:
    135 x 5 x 3 sets......spent.

    Overall not a bad workout, missing breakfast hurt the energy/stamina some I'm sure.

    I started w/400mg on Sat, so today is day 3 of the caps.

    I'll do some light cardio tonight, probably a 2-3 mile walk with the wife, and some cardio on Tuesday, either a run or a bike ride.

    Forgot to mention fish oils in my supps......

    STARTING WEIGHT - 241 this am.

    MEASUREMENTS: - all relaxed.

    Quad: 26 3/4"
    Calf: 16 1/4"
    GUT: 41" - this is around navel - and my biggest issue/weakspot.
    Chest: 49 1/2" - under arms, over nips, relaxed.
    Bicep: 16 1/4"
    Forearm: 12 1/2"
    Neck: 17 3/4"

    Obviously - the gut is the issue, and I'm hoping the 1ARX helps some over the next 5.5-6 weeks. Cleaning up the diet and eliminating alcohol will probably help as much as anything.

    Nice w/o Nole, those cleans are impressive! How do you like those RGBPs? No matter how much I try them I just can't get a feel from them. The straight CGBP is the only way I get the triceps going. I think 320 will be going up real soon here champ!

    I do the RGBPs on a Smith machine since I'm working out alone. It helps take some of the stress off the wrists and allows me to focus on the triceps.

    I only added cleans about 3 weeks ago, I started doing some different exercises more related to some strongman stuff. I like them, they gas me quick though.

    The cleans are a great compound movement. Your whole body is involved when doing them!

    DAY 4 - Tuesday.

    Up at 4, started coffee pot, then hit T-mill for 20 mins walking at 8* incline at 3.4mph. Did some ab work and stretches for my IT Band afterwards. I jacked it up about a year ago, and if I don't do my physical therapy stretches 4-6x a month, it gets agitated.

    Breakfast at 5: 4 egg whites, 6oz ham slice, cup coffee, 8 oz OJ, + 2 caps of 1-Andro.

    So far - still sleeping hard, woke up hard. LOL.

    Appetite was pretty good yesterday, diet yesterday came in about 3100 calories, 42% protein, 31% carbs and 27% fat. I use fitday to track food intake.

    With no lifting today, I'll scale back carbs and cals. Carbs will be less than 75 total, and cals will drop to around 2200-2400.

    Tomorrow is legs! After legs I have JURY DUTY!!! YIKES.

    Dismissed from Jury duty - as expected. 20+ years in the military as law enforcement does that for me.

    Anyway - about 1Andro so far. Woke up at 4am after another rock solid night of sleep, I mean I'm sleeping sound and that is awesome. While getting dressed, I noticed that shoulders, arms, traps & chest look fuller and my muscles feel firmer right now. Appetite is strong, but as yesterday was a no lift day, I stuck to my normal routine of lowering cals - and ended up at 2248, with 48% Protein, 31% fat and 21% Carbs. Most of the fat came at lunch via the pot roast and most of the carbs from carrots, nuts and a slice of pumpernickle. Dinner was 2 cans of tuna with some pickles and mustard mixed in.

    LEGS this AM at home - where I only have 300lbs of weight and limited exercises:

    Squats
    w/u sets
    225 x 12
    275 x 5 x 5 sets

    SLDL
    225 x 10 x 3 sets

    Overhead barbell lunges
    95 lbs x 8 steps out and 8 steps back x 3 sets

    Jump rope -
    50 skips x 5 sets

    Calf Raises - BB on shoulders.....
    250 x 15 x 3 sets

    Added in some plate twists x 45lb plate, 3 sets of 20

    Legs were PUMPED at the end, I was drenched in sweat as it was in the 70's in my garage even that early in the morning. The lunges REALLY got it going.

    BKFST this am was 45 min prior to working out - 5 egg whites, 1 whole wheat muffin, 1 slice of pepper jack, bowl of special K w/1% milk and 4 pineapple rings. And of course my 2 caps of 1 Andro.

    I weighed in after my shower - just to see, I was at 242 - probably attributed to a big breakfast. I'm really hoping to add some solid muscle mass AND drop some body fat over the next 5 weeks. I should've taken before & after pics - may still have to figure a way to post up a current pic this week.

    I should clarify on the lunges. BB is straight up overhead at the start, but it usually ends up shouldered shortly after the turnaround. Goal is to get where that doesn't happen before increasing weight. Its a great exercise for balance, quads, glutes, shoulders, forarms, etc.

    Food intake today has been awesome - 6 meals down - ate every 2.5-3 hrs. 252 grams of protein, 249 grams of carbs, 61 grams of fat. Dinner was fajitas - lots of steak & chicken, green peppers, jalepenos & onions, plus some brown rice. I'll have some cottage cheese around 9pm tonight before bed.

    Tomorrow will be another cardio only day. So back down on carbs to under 75.

    Wow, I just seen this thread I'm loving the title. I should have the **************** shirts in a week or two so PM me your address with your size and I'll ship you one. The first run of shirts are pretty much muscle fit and thick, if you like I'll put Nole1 on the back.

    Thanks - its an exercise I saw someone else doing and asked them about it. I like doing some "different" things to keep it mixed up here and there.

    THURS Update:

    Slept like a rock again. Up at 4, did some stretches, pushups, crunches, etc. Nothing major - its a non-workout day. Just some stuff to move my old blood before bkfst.

    So far - mood is great, no negative sides at all. Muscles feeling full and I recovered from Mondays chest/sh/tri workout pretty quickly - as all lingering soreness was gone on Wed. I had to make myself leave my gymbag at the house this morning, as I'm kinda edgy and feel the 'want' to work out, but don't like getting off schedule.

    Tomorrow is BACK/BI's - I'll also do some tire flips at the end of the workout. I usually do 4 sets of 1 minute - to see how many I can get in a min. Its a great finish to a back day.

    Gonna be in Ft. Lauderdale on the beach all weekend - so I'll probably run on Sat morning and kayak at some point that day as well.

    Ah, another good day with 1-Andro!

    Up this am, bkfst at 0415 - bowl of Special K w/Carb Lite milk, slice of pumpernickel and 2 whole eggs.

    BACK/BIs:

    Start off with some stretches, gotta loosen my old body up.


    Seated CG Cable Rows
    140 x 14
    160 x 12 x 3 sets

    Pulldowns:
    160 x 10 x 4 sets

    T-Bar: alternate grip set to set
    WG w/2 plates x 10 x 2 sets
    CG w/2 plates x 8 x 2 sets

    RACK DEADS:
    275 x 8
    315 x 4
    335 x 3
    365 x 2
    405 x 1 x 2 sets

    Hammer Curls:
    45s x 8 x 3 sets

    Preacher EZ Bar Curls:
    75 x 10 x 3 sets

    Tonight I'll do some other stuff - tire flips, wheel barrow full of sand bags, sand bag lifts to shelf.

    Workout felt great. Noticed in the mirror I was a little more vascular, a little more pumped. Still sleeping great and today is day 7. I will do some cardio over the weekend, nothing crazy, then hit the gym hard Monday morning.

    Well, took off Friday afternoon and headed to the Atlantic to enjoy some sun and waves. (What little there is in the Atlantic anyway.)

    Noticed SAT morning that I was barely sore at all from my back and biceps workouts, just a little tender in the outer biceps from the hammer curls probably. Back was perfect. So that is one great big HUAH for 1-Andro RX and helping out with recovery. Usually the day after back, I crawl out of bed and have to stretch and loosen up. I was up and at 'em Sat morning.

    Sat was spent in the waves bodysurfing, goofing off, swimming, etc. Burnt some calories and got some sun. Kept my diet in check until dinner when I had a Corona Light with my Surf n Turf. Upped my dose to 600mg starting Sat also.

    Sun - up and took a quick walk/run w/the wife before we hit Denny's for breakfast. I had my 6 eggs and 4 strips of bacon w/wheat toast, fruit and coffee. We loaded up and drove home.

    I hit the pool to swim some laps - its only a 25m pool, so I did 500m worth of laps for my workout today.

    Tomorrow is PUSH day. I'll also weigh in and see how progress goes! I'm really liking the 1-Andro RX so far. Recovery is QUICK, sleep in coma-like, stamina is up, and as an extra side bonus for the wife and I - so is libido. Hmmmmm...

    Its day 10, I'm loving the 1-Andro RX and will push harder in the gym this week. I had a great workout this morning, and strength is getting back to levels it hadn't been at in the last few months. Joints/Muscles aren't sore and that is a huge bonus. I'm still sleeping great, and recovering quickly. Diet is tough because I'm freaking hungry all the time!!!

    Weighed in this morning at 244 - probably partial water weight (didn't drink much yesterday or Saturday) and partial actual gain from upping cals to an average of 3800 a day last week.

    PUSH:

    FLAT DB:
    w/u set
    90 x 8
    95 x 6
    95 x 5
    95 x 4
    drop set
    65 x 12

    INCLINE BB:
    185 x 8 x 3 sets

    FLYES:
    45 x 10 x 4 sets

    DC STRETCH at end......w/40's.

    SKULLS:
    85 x 10 x 3 sets

    CGBP: low weight - high reps
    115 x 20 x 3 sets - had to rest pause some on sets 2 and 3.

    STANDING MIL PRESS:
    115 x 10
    135 x 6
    155 x 5 x 2 sets
    shoulders were still tired from benching.....lol.

    PUSH UPS w/45 on back.
    20, 20, 18 - could not do 2 more....

    PLATE PINCHES w/10's - several seconds x 2 sets each hand. Working on grip.

    Going to hit the bike tonight for at least 10-15 miles. Need more cardio than what I got last week in order to ensure the weight gains I'm getting from this stay lean. I cooked up a bunch of ground turkey breast burgers and will post the recipe in the recipe forum. I'll be carrying extra patties around all week to ensure when I'm hungry I can just nuke one for a couple mins.

    If I can cleanly make muscle gains and end up around 245-248 at the end of 6 weeks, then that will be awesome. I'll have to run a cut to get back down around 235 at the end of that, so I'll be looking for suggestions for that.

    One thing about this supp - I normally only lift 3x p/week, and that is enough. BUT - all weekend I had the urge to lift and fought it off because I didn't want to mess up my schedule. I may decide not to fight it and just let it rip and see what happens from here forward.

    Up early, sleep was disruptive last night for first time, so I gave up and got out of bed at 4ish.

    Decided to make use of the time and went for a quick jog in the rain - just about 1.5 miles or so. Very slow, slogging pace, took about 15 mins.

    Decided to do some bicep and forearm exercises afterwards.

    Standing BB curls
    95 x 10 x 3 sets
    115 x 5 x 2 sets

    Concentration Curls
    20 x 20 x 2 sets - slowly, long negatives....

    Wrist curls
    Bar x 12
    55 x 10 x 2 sets

    Pinwheels
    42.5 x 8 x 3 sets

    Pump was very good considering this was all on an empty stomach. Muscles are keeping a full feeling, and I like it alot.

    Also - I'm already feeling my triceps from yesterdays w/o, and can tell they'll be hella sore later today.

    BKFST
    6 oz sirloin steak, 2 whole eggs, whole wheat muffin, banana & coffee.

    Snack at 0800 - 1/2 cup cottage cheese w/pineapple.


    I'm freaking constantly hungry while using 1-Andro RX........and cutting off food consumption at around 7pm has been hard to do as I usually don't sleep til around 9-10.

    Tomorrow is LEGS - Heavy presses and a finish with box jumps......gonna be a sweat-a-thon.
