I would love to give this a try a! I have like most others struggled to find the balance between bulking and staying/getting lean. This past year I have finally found what seems to be working for my body at a slow and steady pace. This sounds like something that I could try to put me over the top and see my gains enhanced.
BF: approx 13%
Wed: Off or cardio only
Fri: Back, Bi's
Sat: - Off or cardio only
Sun: - Off or cardio only
Other than training I also play loads of rec. league sports. Winters I play indoor flag football. Summers I play fast pitch softball in 3 or more leagues. As you can see I am pretty much active all the time.
Diet: Is pretty clean no fast foods ever. take in about 2800k cals currently trying to get leaner... eat fresh turkey, chicken and mostly lean meats with veggi's, brown rice, whole wheat bread and whole wheat pasta.. when I do eat carbs.
Protein - Shakes and bars about 270g a day
BSN Cell Mass

Vital stats: 22/Female/5"5'
Goals: Been adding a little bit of mass for the past few months, eating a lot and keeping training/cardio at decent levels. Now since it is summer, time to eat a little less and workout a little bit more ==> recomp/fat loss - I love lifting and cardio , but something to make my sessions go breezier, whilst helping me augment my body would be great too.
Training 5 days per week
Cardio: 8 times per week - includes high intensity, moderate intensity, intervals: Spinning, boxing, high and impact aerobic classes, GPP, step, skipping, cardio machines.
Diet: 1600-2000 cals (carb cycling) + 2 cheats per week.. 6 meals:
Carb (eg rice)/meat/veg
Current supps: Been taking a bit of a hiatus wrt supps to give my body a break.
Multi, Calcium, Gut Health, Green tea, Bcaas.
Red acid on occassion.
Haven't done any for a while because I haven't seen anything take my fancy.. in the past I have a stack on bb.com,
My current workout journal is here:
The Body is Evil and Must be Punished - Forums
Logs on AM:
ab + dcp = :D
asianbabe's PAL transformation
be my PAL!
asianbabe gets down on red acid v2
Preferred stacks: (I'll add in my own DCP because I think DCP + Xfactor will be siick!)
MN + AN - coz of all the hype !!
or MN + AX (Depending on what AX has)
MN + DS also looks interesting but looking for feedback by people who have tried this, since I haven't used either, not sure if it would be too much on the joints?

I would jump all up in this.... except logging is not my forte. I am a busy man these days.......
Best of luck to all applicants.
P.S.~ You WANT that AN/MN stack..... trust me....

Maybe 3rd time is the charm to log XF??
I train MMA, but still embrace a hybrid BB/PL training style. I run between 15-25 miles a week and have been training seriously for 4 years now.
Mon-Chest, Back, Biceps/MMA
Thur-Chest, Back, Abs/BJJ
Sat-Triceps, Delts, Traps
I vary my macros depending on the intensity and volume of the day along with my relative energy levels.
I would prefer to run either the XF/RPM/Drive stack or the XF/DCP stack since I have previously used these supplements, except for the XF, and know what effect they have on me. I will also be using my own Napalm during the stack to lower my abdominal fat.

Wowzers nice! I'm officially putting in an application too. I'll update this post with my full app. I might have to withdraw though if I win some X Factor from your picture contest JJohn I think, because I might start it before
Alright here`s my application:
Weight: 155 at 6%ish bf
Current Phase:Lean Bulk
Background: I started weight training for fun starting at 14, and did competitive rugby and soccer during high school. In my freshman year at university things went downhill because I was forced to go on a mealplan with terrible options that caused a lot of weight loss. After finishing my year and getting off the meal plan I`ve been lean bulking. It took me over 2 months to figure my personal nutritional requirements along with alot of online reading and questions, and I still am constantly tweaking and experimenting. After this phase I started lean bulking, up from 3% to my current 6.5%. I`ve had the chance along the way to log a few products, and started a few more bulk products at the end of 2007 including Yellow Gold, Beta Alanine, Green Tea and Powerful.
I of course agree to all the conditions JJohn ,and I have progress pics from the last 8 months and a food log of my last year straight (and it is interesting how it has changed), as well as body scans done atleast once a month (i.e. I can get one pre-log, midway and post).
3000 cal daily (Maintenance + 500).
40% Carbs (300g ) 30% Protein (225g) 30% Fats (100g)
Pre-WO Meal 1: 7h00 100g Steelcut Oats, Scoop Whey, 2 Tbsp Flax
8h15-9h15: Workout with 2 scoops Lemonade Xtend
Meal 29h20 Scoop WPI,Ground Oats,100g Frozen Banana
PWO Meal 310h20 70g Complex Carbs (Usually sweetpotato + Biscotti) 100g Chicken Breast
Meal 4 13h30 Beef Chili with Extra Frozen Veggies (Staple frozen in tupperwares), Tsp Fish Oil
Meal 5 16h30 Grilled Wholewheat Salmon Wrap, Broccoli
Meal 6 19h302 Egg 0.5cup Eggwhite Omelette + Lowfat Cheese,Tsp Fish Oil, Carrots
21h20 1.6g bulk 1-Carboxy,2 of Nutraplanet`s ZMT,2.5g GABA
Meal 7 If hungry, will have some fats from nuts of fish oil + clean protein like chicken breast
I really find the porridge 1.5hours before working out gives me the energy to make it through the workout. If I have to workout within 1hour of my breakfast, I skip my post-WO shake and have a solid meal with almost no fats because I find my breakfast is still mid-digestion giving me the required energy.
In general my diet follows the guidelines suggested by Dr. John Berardi, with carbs and fats being separated, and my carbs meals are earlier in the day. I almost always train in the morning, or by noon at the latest.
I also understand the nutritional requirements to properly run an X Factor log having done considerable reading into this product, and am willing to follow the diet exactly as required. I`ve actually gotten to know my local butcher so I can get some pretty good deals on meat now! Switching my salmon wrap for a beef or chicken wrap is no problem at all. I have grown very used to my high omega-3 intake which I find helps with mood and energy, but I am quite willing to switch out my omega-3`s to see the potential of AA instead.
Daily Multivitamin, Vitamin C (500mgx5), Green Tea Extract (2x400mg), Whey Protein Concentrate and Isolate, Tricreatine Malate (Bulk 2x2.5g), Beta-Alanine (2x2g), Yellow Gold (600mg 15mins pre high-carb meals)

I am very interested in logging the X Factor + Drive + RPM stack. I followed cellar`s log carefully and was really interested in the results (I thought cellar would have increased his PR`s more though judging by all the green lights :P ). It took me a while to get my diet in check, then once I had that I got a few basic supplements in and now over the last few months I`ve really dialed in and tried a few different supplements. By the end of this month I will have been on these staples for 3 months with almost no change in my diet or training except minor tweaks, and I`m interested in trying something new. From my samples of RPM I found it was hit or miss; some doses I felt had no effects meanwhile I remember two times having the best workouts ever on RPM so I believe if I figure out the proper dosing I will be able to have some great workouts. I also like how RPM doesn`t have too much caffeine in it. I found when logging white flood for 50 days (200mg of caffeine approx.) I started having problems falling asleep over time. My experience from the Drive sample is non-conclusive, I didn`t feel anything but I think it`s because it is a cumulative effect like cellar noticed and 6 caps over 3 days didn`t really cut it. I am interested in seeing if this combo can produce the safe effects for me, another university student, as it did for cellar.
My previous logs of mine on AM:
YELLOW GOLD - Is it Magic? (Unsponsored Log)
DIESEL: Trib Test Extreme and Coq Diesel Log (Sponsored)
Steveo's Sponsored White Flood + Green Mag Log
Steveo's Axis Labs SMASH Log
Now that I have my diet and nutrition dialed in, I feel ready to try something a bit different. I`m a sucker for mystery items, so the Anabolic Xtreme products are something I`m also very interested in, but I don`t know exactly if these mystery products are for me. Also having no affiliations with any company I give honest reviews (If it tastes bad, IT TASTES BAD! If I thought it tasted like dish detergent I`ll tell you (lol that`s from an old review of I think 1st gen Steeledge) ) and I know how important it is to be consistent. Hope that`s enough info for you , and best of luck to all loggers, there`s going to be a lot!

I am applying for either the X-Factor + Drive + RPM or the X-Factor + AX Unknown Product
I have been lifting weights for ten years now and in the past 4 really gotten my nutrition down. I have taken myself from 145lbs to 235 (currently sitting at a lean 210)while still keeping myself in shape for athletics. I am a strength and conditioning coach with a certification in nutrition that has been developing collegiate and pro athletes the past 3 years.
I logged the original superdrol and the Beta of Activate from Designer Supplements, Mega Dosed E****l from Anabolic Innovations.
I have been trained by both Doggcrapp, and Bobo; and have implemented a lot of Bobo's nutritional information into my diet and DC's training into my routines. Not to mention things I have learned and discovered during my certifications, internships, and strength and conditioning positions.

Well JJohn you know im in bro. Diet is on point. I have my first fight in may so id love to stack X-factor DCP as ive used em both seperately before and loved it. Before and After pics can most definately be posted ( ill make sure of this ). Diet will be low carbs high protein and healthy fats. Training is crazy atleast 5 days a week in the gym and 3 days a week mma!

I guess ill put down an application to see how it goes. Im intrested in that AX product. I was the original tester to X-factor and Drive with some RPM. I looooooved it
I hope AX has more than one product stacked with X-Factor cause that would be truely awesome.
My stats are here.
18 years old
16-17% body fat?
209 pounds (still gaining after X-Factor baby )
My goals are to gain some lean mass while cutting out some fat. I had great success with my last x-factor stack and I look forward to this. Everyone knows im good for some detailed quality logging right?
If picked, I will run X-Factor on a cut most likely. Ive bulked with X-Factor and I loved it. Id love to use a supplement to help keep gains on my cut. A stack consisting of AX (which Ive been DYING to try. John would know and X-Factor would be superb!) Im hoping to make some decent steady gains while on X-Factor on a cut. I think the combination of X-Factor with the new and upcoming AX products is just what I need.

I'm in....I'm on Winter Break right now and having nothing to do but hit the weights. I'm trying to gain mass....I was going to do the xfactor, rpm, drive stack...
Eating 160-200 g of protein a day (weigh 160). Med-High Carbs. I eat about 5-6 small meals a day, rougly 3000+ calories.
Just started a 4 day Split (Upper Push, Lower heavy, Upper Pull, Lower moderate)
12-31-2007, 08:23 PM
12-31-2007, 08:34 PM
That is another reason I am wanting to run one of these stacks so I can cut down on the fish oil and see how my body goes.
