    I keep my self in check with my boss after my last incident, its not easy as hes the son of the owner who is constantly stumbling drunk by 12 noon and does idiotic things and forgets about them. Then blames me. Ah, good times. Its the customers that I have had to watch my mouth with, and yeah great fuel for the weights!

    Sorry bout the late post here.
    Yesterday, I didn't sleep all that well, however the sleep I did get was pretty deep. My way was going alright and was super mellow till bout 2pm when I started feeling really craptacular. Had a really bad allery attack. Sinuses closed up and had difficulty breathing, but I went to the gym anyway and I'm happy I did. Not only did I have a good workout, I came to the realization that due to my new found strength from this stack, I was had inadvertently fell back into my old habits of concentrating too much on the contraction and not enough on the negative motion of the exercises. So I lowered the weight on some of the exercises and did what I had to do.
    Number time.

    Felt good today and slept well even got to take a nap in the afternoon. If you ever get to know me, you will quickly learn that I love short naps, in fact I will frequently crash in my car during my lunch break( weather permitting. We up, did my preform out thing and hit the gym. Had a great workout and really good pump after deciding to concentrate more on the negative. Am actually already sore in my delts, that's something that almost never happens

    Ok so by now Im sure anyone who has read this log has realized that I sleep pretty erratically and not in great frequency. Its not that I dont lay in bed and sleep. I do that, oh do I do that. I just wake up. A lot. If I wake up only 3 times a night that would be a great nights sleep. Now having said that, while I have been taking this stack the quality of sleep has greatly improved. I still wake up, but the time when im sleeping is definitely deeper.That is probably what I will miss the most when this 8 weeks is up.
    Last night I tossed and turned out on the couch, and I have to say that I swear I have the most comfortable couch in the world to sleep or nap on. When I did get to sleep it was deep, but I have noticed that the epic dreams have all but gone away. Anyone else experience something similar while on the stack? I would say it started about a week ago. The dreams have become more of a grey fog that I can remember. Eh whatever.
    This morning I was a little pissed off, as today was my cheat day and I decided to have whole wheat buttermilk pancakes with blueberries, and the household was out of milk. Imagine getting all the ingredients together in a bowl for a dish that you had been craving only to find you were missing one ingredient. Needless to say, I now know what those pancakes taste like using water. Not quite as good, but they did the trick. Yeah that was my cheat meal. Wooo look at me go with my pancakes, and I don't use syrup either. just a little ( and I mean a little ) butter.
    The rest of the was was a little aggravating as its the usual weekly shopping day where we have to wade through the throngs of idiots in our town. I live in a small liberal university town nestled in the heart of California's agricultural area. Really that means there's a great number of incredibly socially conservative farmers, family members and religious folk butting heads with ludicrously liberal artists, hipsters, and neo-hippies. Myself being fairly moderate view those two factions as trying to be the most extreme versions of their dogma in order to prove their point. Really it gets old fast.
    Anyway I"m rambling. The gym started of amazing. had great energy, super intense on my negatives but by the time I hit my hack squats, my energy just dumped. I powered my way through the workout, but it was so brutal. I know now exactly what my issues were. 1) allergies have been inhibiting my oxygen intake. Anyone know if either Intimidate or Rev2 has issues with OTC allergy medications? 2) and prolly the biggest reason I sucked in the gym today, I was a bit dehydrated. I usually get about 200 oz of water a day, yesterday I most likely got half that. Sucking back the electrolyte enhanced water today!

    Slept well and deeply last night. The vivid dreams are back with celebrity sightings again. Odd I have had more dreams with celebreties in them while on this stack then ever in my life.....
    Woke up feeling fairly good considering I felt super crappy yesterday, my boss has bronchitis, perhaps it's being passed to me. But then again it's that time of year for my worst allergies so it could be that. Been using a sinus wash to clean my head out but my lungs are a little heavy but I have good energy. Speaking of that, great energy and intensity in the gym! Good mm and I feel that lightening up the load and concentrating on the negative portion of the rep has already yielded favorable results. I am really enjoying this stack, and one thing I haven't really touched on is libido. Now keep in mind that I am in my late 30's, but things are reminiscent of jr. highschool . I can't shake my leg while sitting with out beginning to get an erection. Being around someone attractive is a little difficult lol. Now the ferocity of the erection and the shear animalistic way sex is, is well amazing. Not to mention the ZMA makes the ejaculation, shall we say, like a fire hose? But I digress.
    Killed it in the gym as I said. After the workout I retreated to the restroom and inspected the results. The pump was crazy. I have never seen my shoulders so large. Love it!!

    Sorry I've gone the last few days got slammed with over time! I ran intimidate with Claritin and didn't have any issues. Probable was due to the allergies.

    The crazy dreams only lasted the first 3-4 weeks for me then stopped.

    Slept well last night. No epic dreams to report. Today I did feel a little better but not quite 100%, but my shoulders are super sore today definitely not something I'm used to. Gonna relish it! For the most of the day I felt a bit irriatable, but nothing I couldn't control. See I can't stand people who won't, can't or don't listen or just plane wait for their turn to talk. It's a conversation people, just like a two way street. Im not sure how many times I had to replete the same information to a person before they actually get it. For example; a person walks in with an item we don't deal in (I work at a pawn shop), so I let them know they should try this spisific business by name and give the street it's on and the nearest cross street and inform the person that the business is on the corner of those two streets, and very easy directions on how to get there. All they have to do is pull over and park. It seems that 80% of the people first ask where it is, then ask the name again. Then what do they ask for? Oh you guesses it, the location again, followed by a request for directions as to how to get there. Mind you the place is six blocks away! I just have to shake my head and walk away sometimes.
    So it was low carb and cardio day. Really feel like I needed it as it did help open my lungs up.

    Thanks again guys. I can tell that not only do you guys have a passion for the products and the company you work for, but also truly care. I'm posting in another forum the same log (specifically based on the workout that I"m doing) and I haven't heard a peep from a single person.

    Woke up 6/28 feeling a little better than the previous day but it quickly devolved into feeling shat-tastic. I went to the doc in the afternoon. The good news is that I didn't have strep throat or bronchitis, but I did have a nasty virus. This was only exasperated by the high pollen count here and the clouds of perfume that people wear into my place of business. A little side note, if I can smell you from 10-15 feet your wearing way too much. All you need is one maybe two sprays in the air and then just walk through it. A person should only be ale to smell your fragrance when close enough foe ou to feel their breath o your neck.*
    Went to the gym and I gave it my all despite feeling like poo. The interesting thing is mm and focus were really strong today, but my strength was way down. I focused and used proper form as much as possible. Whe I look at the numbers it seems like I just phoned it in.

    I'm a strict believer in that if I cant give it 110%, I don't go. I train where i ever set i do, is harder than the last.. if i am 10% off, i wont be going harder than last.

    So I had to take some time off the gym to get better. The past few days, I have been sleeping as much as possible and taking it easy. I have been taking the intimidate and rev2 through tHe break. I did reevaluate my workout and streamlined it to prevent overtraining.....which is part of my issue. My body weight was going down but the body fat was staying at the same place. Thus the reevaluation
    Woke up this morning feeling pretty damn amazing then about a half hour after breakfast I felt like regurgitated cat poo. I took a quick nap and hit the maxamize and hemavol and set off for the gym.
    Focus and mm were really good energy wasn't at 100% the whole time but it felt good to get back to it.

    Effects of the intimidate are really coming through strong on the sleep front, and despite getting 3500 cals a day I'm still hungry. The odd part about that is I seem to be the most hungry 45 Minot an hour after I eat. *I'm not really feeling aggressive much more, but then again not much has been pissing me off lately. Focus and mm in the gym are good and the adjustments I have done to my workout have me more sore, but I keep wondering. Should I just lift on the heavier end and try to get slightly more mass? Or should I do s few more reps and be happy with the density of the muscle. Considering my muscle mass is fairly hard when flexed I'm gonna hit the heavier end. Thoughts? It seems that most of the logs I have read people seem to favor more weight. Also my energy really dumps after the first two exercises then I hit a zone like a freight train. Anny suggestions on killing the energy lag part way through?*

    So if i understand this correct, you start your workout strong, fad in the middle, and end strong?

    Mike,
    Yes thats exactly what happens. I consume my preworkout shake plus 1/2 cup of raw oatmeal 1 hour before hitting the weights and my preworkout stimulant (maximize and Hemavol) plus optimum nutrition bcaa tabs 1/2 hour before I hit the weights. I have about a 5-10 minute window to warm up then begin to lift which is the 1 hour after prework out nutrition and 1/2 hour after preworkout stimulant.

    One thing that I still really like is the depth of sleep that I'm getting with the intimidate. Pretty refreshing really.*
    Didn't have the typical energy drop off during my second exercise, it crept in during the third but I did try to power through it. I have been trying to control my breathing better I between sets by taking long deep breaths. It's more difficult than I had originally thought lol. But it was helpful when I could act on it rather than react.
    One thing that I have really been trying to do is stress the negative motions of the exercises and to keep the muscle fully engaged through out not only each rep but during the entire set while staying in control of the weight. It's amazing to me how little weight is needed to achieve failure with this method. It may look on paper like my numbers are going down but I am growing again which is favorable. I did put on some fat (0.2%) during the week that I was sick due to not having the energy to do cardio. That's a bit of a disappointment to me but I'll start my carb cycling and hiit tomorrow as its one of my days off from the gym. Over all I'm down from 29.9% to 29.3% which in a few weeks isn't bad for pure fat loss.*
    So the gym, numbers down intensity up and the pump is great! Did back today and I could almost see my wings!!

    Yesterday was cardio. Finally feeling well enough to get back to that. Did 30 minutes of fasted hiit. Last 8*minutes were a bit difficult , but I powered through it.
    Slept a about 9.5 hours last night and it was really deep. Felt really groggy when I woke up, had my s pre workout nutrition and headed out to train quads. 2 scoops of protein powder, 1/2 cup raw oats and 1/2 cup of rice crispy clerical then hemavol and maximize a half hour before. Seems to do the trick for the energy lag *in the beginning of the workout. When I finished my pump set and was walking to the lobby my legs wanted to give out on me. Lol. I'm sure I looked utter ridiculous almost falling every three steps. I did come concerned looks from people doing cardio, I just smiled and laughed.
    Trained hams and calves later in the afternoon to keep my time lifting to a reasonable level. *This is really a better way for to train legs over all but the feeling of fatigue while writing this is overtaking me and making me want to sleep. On my second set of my pump exercise I hyperextended my left knee during straight leg dead lifts. I was trying to keep my knees locked and pulled a little too hard causing me to lose my balance slightly. The result is obvious. I'm not damaged so I just went on with the sets keeping a close mental watch on my left knee.
    On a good note, my squat net up 40 pounds and I gained one pound of muscle! Yay rest!

    Truly, thats hard to see. IMO, its sounds like a motivational issue. Thats how I get when I am not in the mood to train.. def not the norm. I wish I could help you more.

    When's the last time you took a break from stims? Wonder if that could have anything to do with your lack of motivation.

    I only take Stim on weight training days and I don't drink caffeine or energy drinks. Though I could be building up an immunity. I really took time to analyze how I was feeling today and looked at all factors, diet, weather, allergies, traffic, sleep, ect. I think I have determined exactly what the issue is.

I really took time to analyze how I was feeling today and looked at all factors, diet, weather, allergies, traffic, sleep, ect. I think I have determined exactly what the issue is. It's a heat factor. I go from an office thats 74 at the hottest, often 72 or 71. Drive for 15-20 minutes in 100 degree weather to a gym at the cool temperature of 85 with high humidity. My body takes more than the 10-15 minutes to acclimate to the temp and I'm not able to process oxygen as efficiently due to the relatively high humidity. At least that what I think is happening. Thanks for all or the assistance critical and cop!
    Having said that, I will go on with my almost daily update

    Slept fairly crappy last night and had weird dreams with Mel Gibson in them. Wanted to ask about the arrest incident but woke up just as I was about to. That one doesn't compare to the dream I had about being a member of a government run supernatural hunting team. Complete with sexy female wear wolves, comic relief zombies that couldn't attract you if you were looking at them, car chases and matrix like bullet time fight scenes. Really like the dreams from intimidate!
    Had a good attitude going into the gym, increased my pre workout carbs and post workout fast digesting carbs. *Really hit the weights with all I had, slight energy lag but took a 2 min break and worked on controlling my breathing between sets.*
    Did seated military press for the first time in months, forgot what a bitch that one is. Didn't get the reps I wanted but I I hit true failure, which I have found comes at a much lighter weight when keeping the muscles engauged throughout the entire set. Didn't help that I seemed to lose a little muscle mass from overtraining but it will come back quickly. *Felt in control during the entire workout.

    Wear wolves, not the typical turn into a wolf like humanoid, but they just grew a set of sharp teeth and their eyes changed colors...... And ate people.

    Didn't sleep all that well last night bud I felt pretty good all day. Had really good energy despite forgetting today was a training day. That means I try to get my carbs as low as possible and do cardio in hopes to burn more fat through the day. But alas as I stated I forgot that today was a training day so I had to run home at lunch and grab some food to make up the carbs I had missed from the morning oatmeal and blueberries. I plowed back a cup and 1/4 of basmati rice with my afternoon snack and again had a cup of raw oats with my pre workout shake. Felt amazing in the gym today! I'm sure this is a combination of the high carbs in the afternoon and *actually using the ac in my car. I will also be looking into the necessity of using the treadmill before workout. I thought that my body was warm enough and my instincts were correct....at least on this account. *
    Great energy in the gym, felt stronger than usual and didn't have the usual mid workout lag!

    Slept pretty well last night with some crazy vivid and erotic dreams. I'll spare you guys the details as I'm sure my type is not yours lol.
    Felt pretty good all day, my body fat % I'd sown to where it was before I became sick, so im pretty happy about that.*
    I decided to drop my cals by about 300 a day except on days where I'm training back or legs.*
    Energy was good in the gym, and everyday I go I try to get more intensity and give more. I feel like I learn something new every time I go in, and I'm pushing harder and harder. Tried some deep stretches with dumbbells pretty painful in a good way!

    I hit the elliptical machine. The geometry is amazing for my body and it doesn't hurt my joints.

    I'm thinking of adding dexaprine at the end of this just to take off a little ore fat. What do you think?

    Energy was good all day yesterday and sleep is still deep. Honestly I wish I could stay on this stack forever. I can't remember the last time I slept this well for so long.

    Def would not hurt; would only help big time IMO. Do you have v.1 or v.2 of dexaprime?
