Best time was 1:40.6 but at only 38 spm!
Was great today as you can tell.....PRs baby! Felt like I would have PRed my dead but my stupid hammy is setting me back! I am ice-ing and stretching it so hopefully it'll get better!
Great today as well! Rested very little between sets but felt I was ready to go after completing each set! Lovin it guys! Felt like I could go non-stop and for hours!
Was mediocre today! Don't get me wrong was still very good, just not like the other days!
Didn't take anything to help in this area but nevertheless I was still ready to tear up some weights
This was only mediocre tonight as well too! Only took partial doses of V02/cordy 5
Awesome today! Just the right fullness! Muscles were nice, full, and tight!
None at all!
So far I am loving EVERY aspect of this stack! Definately is improving EVERY aspect of training paramiters! I will definately be a follower and MST supp whore

Alright guys, should have done this before starting the log but here are some stats and a little background!
Height: 5'8" ish
Weight: 182 lbs.....haven't weighed for about 2 weeks though
BF: Dunno.....last time I had it checked in the bodpod, it was around 10%!
but that was around 4 months ago or longer and I have also
lost weight since then!
L Calf: 15.5"
R Calf: 15.45"
L Quad: 23"
R Quad: 22.5"
Waist at belly button: 32.25"
L Arm: 17.45"
R Arm: 17.65"
L Forearm: 13.25"
R Forearm: 13.25"
*These stats were taken with the orbitape to the best of my ability*
Just recently switched to an unweighed paleo diet! Me personally, I feel that the paleo is one of the best diets for health/wellness/and body composition! For those that don't know, paleo, consists of a diet void of any bread, grains, and legumes! For these items have been shown to cause gut irritation, celiac disease, cancer, etc. Therefore, I stick with grass fed beef (turkey, buffalo, etc.), fish, good fats (olive oil, coconut oil/milk, nuts), all vegetables, and some fruit!
So my break down looks something like this:
Protein: 1 gm per lb of body weight (about 180 g)
Fat: ALOT !!!!! With at least 3-5 g of pure fish oil daily
Carbs: Fluctuates between 50 -100 g daily (not going over 100g)!
I am fairly lean so this unweighed diet works great for me! As long as I make sure I am eating 1 g of protein per pound of bw, then I go free on all the veges/fats I want (minimum intake of nuts though....they have also been shown to cause some gut irritation) adding in either an apple and some berries throughout the day and a little apple sauce post workout! I eat between 3-4 meals per day with 1-2 snacks between those meals!
Was a gymnast for a little over 10 years! After quitting I went straight to lifting weights. I, of course, started with Arnold HUGE encyclopedia of bodybuilding where I did workouts that took 2-3 hours at a time! I soon found out that this was not the way to train....obviously ! Through trial and error I built a pretty good base for myself! The heaviest I got in gymnastics was about 155 lbs! Through lifting weights, I was able to put on roughly 20 lbs in a few years! I was ripped and could eat anything I wanted and stayed leaned! However, I wanted to get BIG! So I was dumb and started downing weight gainers! In a few short months I shot up 20 + lbs and eventually I went up to 230 lbs! I was strong as hell, but was a blob! Fatty mcfatter!!!!!!! So I recently cut back down to 200+ and finally to where I am today....around 180lbs! I feel and look alot better at this weight although I had to sacrifice strength along the way! Other things I have done along the way have been martial arts and I did diving my senior year of HS! I love martial arts and outdoor activities, however, I just don't have the time to do it ALL, unfortunately! My new endevour has been crossfit! I helps me take out my competitiveness on the weights! Crossfit is a mix between O-lifting (which I have NEVER done) + gymnastics and puts it into a killer endurance workout! I am loving it so far even though I am dealing with some injuries right now and my endurance sucks! My goals are to maybe go to sectionals and regionals to maybe one day compete in the crossfit games! My other goals are to lose a few more lbs from the holidays and gain a few lbs of muscle with ALOT more strength....esp in the O-lifting department!
Rotate between Crossfit (XFIT) workouts and O-lifting workouts....finally got me a workout schedule that is Max Effort Black Box Training that is PROVEN to work! So let's see what I can do with it!
My mainstays will be a host of MST supplements including/but not limited to:
Cordygen V02 Ultra
Rag Ultra Caf Free.....Blue raz is yummy!!!!
Other Supplements that I will cycle through during certain periods:
SNS Focus XT
Of course these will not all be taken at once !!!!!!!!
I think that is all I have for now but stay tuned!!!!!

Week 1 Mini-Review:
Well, I have been on my stack for a little over a week and I am LOVIN how everything is going so far! If you have the cash for the whole MST Ironman stack (Cordygen 5/Cre-02/Carnage/Citruvol) then you should definately be looking into this because it is one hell of a stack! You can definately feel the supplements working from the very first dose and it gets better with EACH day! As you can see I have impoved in EVERY aspect of my workouts!
10 out of 10
I owe the strength gains to Cre-02! Everytime I got into the gym and pick up the weights they feel lighter each workout! It is hard to explain! You go into the gym ready to tear the weight up and you just feel solid! Definately feel a mind-muscle connection happening too!!!!!!
10 out of 10
I owe this to Citruvol/Cordy 5 and V02! This products will definately help you achieve your endurance goals! I might give out on a certain amount of reps but as soon as I set the weight down I IMMEDIATELY feel like I could pick the weight right back up and keep goin! I just don't get tired as fast! I feel like a 2 hour plus workout would be no problem! I am definately loving this aspect
10 out of 10
I owe this to citruvol! My veins are poppin all over...esp in my arms and forearms! It is ridiculous! I have even seen some veins in my shoulders which I rarely do! It is amazing! Even when I wake up the next morning I can still see them bulging! Before Citruvol, I was taking about 6 g of bulk citrulline malate a day! Which I would get some good vascularity/endurance from! However, the 2 g in the Citruvol feels much stronger than the 6 g of bulk I was taking! Loving it!!!!!!! Citrulline is one of my favorite supplements!!!!!
Well now that would be citruVOL!!!!!
10 out of 10
The two focus supplements I use are either SNS Focus XT or Rag Ultra! Both of these produce superb results! I thought that the rag will pale in comparison to the Focus XT but I was sure wrong! Both give spectacular results! You are ready to go in the gym and just tear it up! The mind-muscle connection is very much amplified! Love this aspect!
11 out of 10!!!!!!!
I love this aspect because my 02 is horrible...esp when it comes to the longer XFit workouts! I owe this to cordy 5/V02! My favorite out of the two is the V02 though! It just kicks in so f-ing fast! I feel like my 02 max is taken to another level or I was givin an extra set of lungs! I feel like I can take in a refreshing breath even during the most intense workouts! It takes much much longer to get me winded and when I do get winded my breathing calms down much faster!
10 out of 10
I owe this to Rag Ultra and the Citruvol! Both produce some great pumps! Sometimes after taking the Rag I will look like I put on about 5 lbs. These pumps are a little different! It is not the ones where you inflate so much that the exercises get painful and you just can't go anymore! These are tight and a feeling of muscle fullness and harness! I love these types of pumps because they don't interfere with your workouts but you just look so dang good!!!!
10 out of 10
Nothing bad to report about anything
The ONLY two negatives that I can even come up with for this stack are two things! This is a pretty pricey stack for only a month supply! Some might feel that sticking with one or two products in order to stay within budget is the best! I know most pre-workout supps are going around 35-50 dollars for a month supply! I feel that you could use one or two of these products stacked together and obtain some great results! But I am loving the full stack! The only other negative is dosing parameters! You have to have a plan for workout times, meal times, etc to plan around taking these supps! You have to be on your game! Because Cre-02/cordy 5 have to be taken 1.5-2 hours pre, then citruvol is 45 min to an hour, then carnage is 30 min pre! So you are really having to time everything to get it just right! I have a little ocd so this usually isn't a problem! But these two things are ONLY negatives I could even think about! To me, the money is well spent on this stack and think anyone will find that it will help out in all aspects their training regimen!
Ok if I had to pick just one supplement from MST to use.........well I COULDN'T!!! I love them all!
See....you need them all haha! I am definately a believer now!
Oh and I have been taking the mycogreen and definately can tell something good is going on! Think it helps with recovery as well! I have been taking ghenerate pre-bed for a while now but after adding in mycogreen I seen to be waking up even leaner each morning! Dunno if it is due to the mycogreen for some reason or not! I do know that I do have to go to the bathroom every morning since adding in mycogreen though! Maybe its cleaning me out haha!
That's all I can think of right now! Let's see what this week can bring!!!!!!!!!!

Great build TT..(no homo) and congrats on the PR champ. Nice numbers!! The diet and workout look solid and with the supps you should have no problem reaching your goals.
PASSION...what separates you from being a shadow in the crowd or the one casting a shadow over the crowd.
