    LOG: Igniting my inner Alpha with Finaflex!


    First off, I want to say thank you for DreamWeaver, ScottyDoc and whole Finaflex team for giving me this great opportunity to do this log.

    I'll run 45 days long cycle of 1-Alpha followed with Revolution PCT and Pure Test. I'll also use their pre-workout product Ignite 2. I'll start taking 1-Alpha next Monday (November 5th). I'll also post starting pics and weight next week.

    Many of you probably don't know who I am, so here is it briefly:
    I am Paulus from Finland. I study in JAMK University of Applied Sciences and I work as an artistic gymnastics coach/instructor. I started lifting 2008, weighing only 110lbs. I'm not big yet but at least I look like human being I have done one cycle of Havoc before, I had to cut it short after 4 weeks because of getting sick.

    My training is concentrated on compound lifts. I believe that bigger weights = bigger muscles but I also like doing isolating work for all muscle groups. I injuried my rotator cuffs 2009 so I can't do barbell flat bench with wide grip.. I have also pain in my lower back sometimes (I hurt it when I was in the army last spring) so I don't usually go too heavy on deadlifts and I do them after doing other lifts in back day.

    My goal for this cycle is lean bulk and strength gains. Target weight is 165lbs lean, in the morning.
    Some people could call me hardgainer but I don't - it's just an excuse for not eating enough. Usually my diet has been high on fats but now I'm not going to eat/drink any additional fat. Protein intake will be pretty high - at least 1.5 grams/bodyweight. Carbs will be high too.

    Cycle:
    Finaflex 1-Alpha, 4 caps/day for 45 days
    Finaflex Ignite 2
    I also have Stano on hand if lethargy gets too bad. I'd dose it 600-1200mg/day, depending what is enough.

    Support supps:
    AI Life Support, 2 caps/day (1-Alpha is not methylated but I'd rather be safe than sorry and take half the dose of Life Support)
    Fish oil
    Vitamins and minerals
    Taurine


    PCT:
    Pure Test, 4 caps a day for 30 days (starting the last week of the cycle)
    Finaflex PCT Revolution, 4/3/2/1
    I also have Tamoxifen on hand, I'll take it 20/20/10/10 if I feel that I need it. Again, I'd rather be safe than sorry
    Creatine (either monohydrate or Crea-Trona, depends if I can afford it) 5 grams a day, starting the last week of the cycle

    Other supplements:
    Whey protein
    Maltodextrin



    THIS WILL BE FUN!!

    I was so excited to get this started that I posted it in the wrong section (it was supposed to be in log section). Hopefully some nice moderator would move it for me! Anyway, cycle starts on Monday but I'll try Ignite 2 tomorrow!

    I officially list my strength goals here:
    Front squat 265lbs
    Close-grip bench press 245lbs
    Weighted chin-up with 110lbs of extra weight
    Standing military press 155lbs

    Deadlift 445lbs if I decide to go heavy
    And bodyweight will be between 160-170lbs, 165 being ideal.

    They may be totally unrealistic but I'll try! Bench will be the most difficult, I have lost a lot of strength in it.

    Sorry for that multiple reply. This app is going nuts this morning. Looking forward to good quality gains for you. Will be following very closely as I'm also interested in 1 Alpha.

    Glad to have you both here!

    Yesterday night I did some upper body work when I was instructing kids at the gymnastics gym. Chins, dips, core...

    Today I'll have to leave the town earlier than I thought so no workout today. Next one will be on Monday when I'm on 1-Alpha already!

    First capsule is down, 179 more to go About 2 hours and I'll hit the chest. Mostly long sets today. Let's see how I can do - I feel pretty weak after rough weekend.

    Breakfast:
    125g of quark
    125g of yoghurt
    2 slices of dark bread with meat and butter
    1 boiled egg
    1 cap of 1-Alpha
    1 cap of Life Support
    20mcg of vitamin D3

    Preworkout I'll take half scoops of Ignite 2.

    Post workout shake will be 1.5dl of whey protein, 1dl of maltodextrin and 1 cap of 1-Alpha.

    Yeah, I want to play it wise with stims. No reason to go too high if it works at lower doses. Tolerance will increase at some point anyway.

    It may be a while, once you find your sweet spot you are golden for a long stretch.

    True that. I'm expecting great things from Ignite 2 because the original was nothing short of amazing.

    Day 1

    Morning weight: 161.0lbs

    Workout of the day:
    - Supersetted side lateral raises (4 sets of 8-10@16's) and facepulls (4 sets of 8-10 @ 80lbs)
    - DB chest press (4 sets of 8-11 @ 55's)
    - DB incline press (4 sets of 8-20 @ 40's)
    - Cable pushdown (4 sets of 8-15 @ 95lbs + drop set)

    30 minutes and I was in and out of the gym. Short rests between sets.

    Strength wasn't great but intensity was high. Pump was good too.

    Ignite 2 tasted great and hit me after 10 minutes. I feel that I could handle full scoop without side-effects but I probably won't up the dose yet. Energy was clean and focus was there. Very unlike than 1,3-DMAA based preworkouts.

    Tomorrow I'm going to to kill my back with heavy chins.

    Good to see you got your stuff in! Welcome to the fun. Being half way thru my second week I can tell you from my experience you'll start to feel it kicking in at the end of week one, around day 8-10. You'll reach failure but the weights won't feel heavy and you'll feel like going for more. As long as you put out at the gym and eat for gains you'll start gaining weight pretty quick. Get those carbs in for sure, they'll keep your glycogen stores high for those heavy weights and weight gain. As far as lower back issues I got em too. Use a proper weight lifting belt to negate injury. I've yet to have any signs of estrogen conversion or lowered libido so I'm happy thus far. Good luck and ask questions if you have any.

    I hope that it kicks in fast for me too.

    And about eating for gains: this time my goal is more something between lean bulk and recomp. I just hope that at the end of the cycle I'm as big as I was at my biggest, but leaner and stronger. Quality over quantity on this cycle Protein intake will be there though, carbs slightly less than usually when I'm bulking and fats much less.

    I had to come here to report that my appetite is huge right now. Don't know if 1-Alpha has anything to do with it but anyways, this is certainly a good sign.

    Decent physique to start, again going to be easy to see gains as you're reasonably lean.

    Dude, your physique is perfect for doing a LOG on 1-ALPHA, you are lean with a great shape, you should put on a min. of 10Lbs of lean muscle (hopefully more) and it should really show up well with your physique and low BF... SWEET!!! Hey, BTW, what is your height and weight and BF if you know it???

    Weight is slightly over 160lbs. Hopefully I'll be lean 165lbs and stronger than ever after this cycle! Now I'm going for lean bulk but if the weight shoots up fast, I may tweak things little and go for recomp. Right now look and strength is more important for me than size!

    Heigh - dunno, last time it was measured was when I was in high school (2007), I was 5'6.5" then.

    Haven't measured my bodyfat since spring. It was 9.9 but I think it's higher now..
