I have been working crazy hours. Being a Manager of a retailer is stressful enough, but around this time of year that magnifies by 10. I am up at the ass crack of dawn and sometimes falling asleep at the same time. I close one night and open the next. There are some days when I complete a split shift or work from open to close. With my old company I would be transferred around every two years and with that transfer would come a month or two where my lifting would suffer. Usually due to learning and becoming acclimated with a new schedule. It was very difficult for me to find the focus and drive to make it to the gym. I thought that I would go through the same type of let down changing companies, and I would have if it were not for the Ultimate Stack. This has helped me keep and increase my drive and focus in the gym and in the workplace. Normally after switching stores it would take me 2 months to get back on track and back to the level that I would have been lifting at previous. In the new transition, I have not seen a let down, not even a plateau. I am still seeing gains and finding myself motivated to lift heavier weight and increase the reps on a daily basis. I wish I had this product years ago. This is definitely a staple in my life

Had the best chest workout since tearing my chest a couple of years ago. The last 3 times that I lifted I went in the morning, and in doing so I changed up the times that I have been taking T-Blast and my workouts have been extreme since. I have been taking my first 2 T-Blast pills upon waking up, and then in 2 hours taking my second set of 2 directly followed by 3 Swoll-N and 2 scoops of Supp-D. Since I have been taking my supplements in this time frame I have experienced some of the best workouts of my life. I am not only getting a cleaner stronger lift but due to my increase is focus and motivation I am able to get through my workout in less time. I am taking less time in between each set and still getting a better workout. I strongly suggest taking your Ultimate Stack in this manner, and let me know how you do.
I also began taking Recover-D today. 2 scoops contain 28 grams of Protein. I have found that most powders that contain that much protein have a terrible taste. Although I really do not have any idea what a Chocolate Eclair is supposed to taste like, the flavor and taste of this shake was pleasant. I always mix my shakes with less water than almost everyone and because of that have to mix them for a rediculous amount of time. That was not the cast with Recover-D. I did have to mix it a little longer than what most people would have to I did not have to mix it for even close to the same amount of time as usual. I will continue to update you all on my progress and on my thoughts on Recover-D.

It has been a couple of years since I have had such effective and quality workouts. I have been getting stronger every day, but the last two weeks in the gym have been absolutely outstanding. I have been having some knee pain for the last week so I was not planning on going heavy on dead lifts and was not going to squat at all today. Although I did not squat, my dead lift was crazy. I had a couple of tight and slightly tender warm up sessions. The funny thing is that I did not have any pain or tension in my knee from 405 on. I lifted up to 455 today with relative ease. I believe I could have pulled 475 maybe 480 today. I am getting so close to tripling my body weight. I know that I am going to reach my goal of doing so by the end of the year. With the help of NLA and the Ultimate stack, I feel that I might just pull more than my goal. My plan is to not max out on the dead lift until 2013. I am going to concentrate on some serious heavy lifting to help build the strength I need focusing on my explosiveness from the floor. As I am sure with most people, my trouble is the first couple of inches. Once I am able to get the weights off the floor by 2" I know that the weight is mine. I did work my weight back down today finishing up with 15 reps at 315, and I could have gotten atleast 3 more with a stretch at 20. I would not have even considered pulling 3 times my body weight without the push the Ultimate stack gives me. I have been taking around 1 and 3/4 scoops prior to heading to the gym. I am going to begin taking 2 scoops to see what kind of lift that little bit more can give me. I used to hate dead lifts, now I look forward to the next session the moment I leave the current one. Any suggestions for me on workouts or routines to help me reach my goal, drop me a note

I have recently begun taking Recover-D(Protein Powder in the Ultimate Stack) from NLA. I am consuming Chocolate Eclair, and although I have no idea what an actual Chocolate Eclair taste like I am quite impressed with this product. Most powder supplements that I take(especially protein) mixes like concrete. Either clumpy or into a pudding like substance. Recover-D mixes consistently and smoothly with little to no clumping. I have even found it to mix quite well in a regular shaker bottle. I find most protein powders to be gritty and to leave a terrible after taste in my mouth, some times well after taking it. I did not find this with the Recover-D. The shake went down easy with a pleasant chocolate taste. The flavoring was not over powering as I am sure many of you find with companies focusing on the flavor. NLA has a great tasting product, but the focus is on the effectiveness. I find the tenderness in my muscles to be diminishing and the length of time that it takes my body to recover cut down dramatically. I feel like I could train the same muscle every other day if I wanted it to. Recover-D is going to be a staple in my workout routine. I am excited to see how my PR's will continue to explode with the addition of Recover-D. The ultimate stack has worked wonders for me and I am eagerly looking forward to maxing out on all 3 phases of Power lifting once the new year hits. I am then going to use that as motivation and with the help of NLA and The Ultimate Stack begin to blow those out of the water all the way through 2013.

Can not wait for my workout today. I have been having some knee pain over the last few days so I am going to trade in my full range dead lift for a low bar rack lift. I am giving me knee until Saturday to heal up and I will start full range deads and squatting again. I am looking forward to today. I have not pulled a rack lift in a while and I am looking forward to seeing what kind of weight I can throw around.

Workout on Tuesday was on point. Bad knee and all, I worked up to 500 on a low rack dead. I know that I could have pulled quite a bit more, but was protecting the knee. I have taken the last two days off from training and have to admit that It was much needed. Although I have highly enjoyed the last two somewhat relaxing days, I can not wait to get back into the weight room. I am utilizing this next month to concentrate on pure power from the bottom up. The countdown has begun. I am going to be maxing out on all primary lifts the week of January 7th. I can not wait to see how far i have come from a torn pectoral. Then on January 8th, the next phase begins. I know that with the help of NLA I will have a stronger year in 2013
I have always trained hard, but was having trouble making gains. It was not until I began using the Ultimate Stack from NLA that I started to see the results that I was used to before the injury. I was beginning to think that I would not get close to my PR's from before. The pump I get from this stack has been a great contributor to getting my strength back.Then on January 8th, the next phase begins. I am so close to competing again. Does anyone know of any upcoming meets in the Indianapolis area.

Thanks for the support. I am loving everything that NLA has brought to me. It was not long ago that I was thinking about giving it up. I wasn't pushing through the plateaus and due to that my head wasn't in it like it used to be. NLA had helped me get my focus back and push my drive right over the top. I am once again looking forward to each and every workout. I know that you are all seeing the same results as I am. NLA, the best product out there.

I hate chest day on a Friday. I love being alone in the gym unless it is chest day. Could not push myself as much as I planned as there was no one there to spot me. I worked my way up to slow reps of 285 but did not want to risk going any beyond that. I did work in my touch and hold with some light form work and did all this with less rest than usual. Got a really good workout in a short period of time. My muscles were worked hard and in a different manner than normal. It's a good thing I have Recover-D to help with my recovery. It is going to help keep me from being too sore tomorrow.
Question. So to my old work schedule I was working out chest, tri, shoulders one day. And legs, back, bis a another day. Working out each set twice a week. Have been doing This for years. I now have a job with what could be a set schedule where as I could start to work out 4 days a week in a manner that would be each body part worked only once a week. Why are your thoughts.

Alright here's the scoop. I dropped all 6 T-Blasts, 3 Swoll-N, and 2 scoops of Supp-D this morning right before leaving for the gym. Holy Crap. The pump that I received was absolutely rediculous, and my veins looked like a freaking 3D road map. From the moment I got there I was going non stop. I wanted a really good workout today and was planning on spending a good amount of time at the gym, but I did not need to. I made it through Back, Legs and Biceps in about an hour and fifteen minutes. I even squatted today for the first time in a few weeks due to injury. I did not push a lot of weight but i concentrated on form and worked the negative slow. I am going to slowly work my weight back up using this slow technique. The squat felt really good and I know that if I can keep my form tight like it was today that I can push more weight. I do have a question however. I am starting to feel that I am dragging on the dead. I need to change up my routine a little. What set,reps are you doing that will help me push through the plateau and help me to pull more weight. I am getting closer to maxxing out and want to make sure that I am getting a benefit out of every set and every rep. I have even talked to my wife today about my diet. I am still leaning out. I am rock solid but only sitting at 163(160 on my home scale). I used to compete at 165 and I am trying to decide if I want to stay at this weight class or perhaps start bulking up to throw at 181.

Great workout yesterday. I am glad that i used Recover-D last night. I am pretty sore right now, and dont want to think about how I would have felt without it. I am going to take today, tomorrow and Tuesday off to recover then back in the gym for some hard core training on Wednesday. Still waiting for some ideas to break the dead lift plateau.

My chest workout today was insane. I was able to make it through my Bench workout alone in the gym. Again, unable to push myself as far as I would like.. Wouldn't you know that as soon as I finished my last set another guy came walking into the gym. It was actually good timing. I decided to continue on with Bench adding 3 more slow rep lifts in with him as my spotter. I worked my way up to 300 with relative ease and decided to go for 315. It is rare for me to have a spotter so I wanted to make sure that I took advantage of the situation. I have not tried 315 since I tore my chest so I was a little aprehensive. I did not think that I was going to push it, especially after making it though an actual workout, but I had to try it. Ken, my spotter told me that he helped me a little with it, but to be honest I am pretty sure that i would have had it on my own. It felt good on the way down, I made sure that I went slower than I would normally. On the push up it felt smooth, I did notice a hitch at about 4" above me chest which is when i could tell he began to help. He came in to help which i appreciate, but I am pretty sure he came in too soon. I am sure that i would have pressed it myself. The initial press off the chest went rather easy which is usually when i lose it. I really miss having a person that I lift with on a regular basis. They know your lifting style. They know when they need to step in and when to make sure you push through it. All in all, I am excited about the lift today and of so looking forward to maxxing out in a few weeks. NLA has been a huge help at getting me back to where I am.

just returned from the gym. I will start with some bad news. I was unable to squat today due to the pain that is still in my knee. I could not even get through my first warm up set. I did however have a pretty good day in dead lift. I have a little bit of pain when performing these, but very minimal when I focus on my form. I started out really after my actual workout on deads, I decided to make an attempt at just under triple my body weight. I weighed in today at 161 and was trying to pull 475. I unfortunately was unable to complete the lift. I do think that I would have been able to pull it except for two things. One, I just completed a rigorous workout. Two, I did not get much sleep last night. I am confident that i will be pulling this no problem come January. I did however complete something that i have been wanting to get for a long time. I have been repping out at 315 after finishing dead lift lately. I have only been able to get 15 before getting really tired. Today, I reached my goal of 20. I actually think i could have pulled one or two more, but by the time that i got to 20 I was completely out of breath. All 20 were done with out wraps or a belt. NLA has helped me to come a long way. I wish I could continue with these types of gains.

Today was a day off from the gym . I am planning a heavy shoulder/ab day tomorrow. I do not get to work on these often so I am looking forward to them. These used to be my favorite days in the gym, but lately I have had to incorporate them into my chest day and unable to get the focus and the gains that I would like. Gonna be going hard and heavy on some shrugs tomorrow

Shoulders are still sore. Worked some power shrugs up to 635 today, added in some flexions and crushed it in abs. I am sure to be hurting tomorrow. 2 scoops of Recover-D after my workout definitely helped with my recovery. Off tomorrow them hitting chest on Monday. I so hate to hit cheat on a Monday.

Worked late today so I wanted to get In and out of the gym today. Honestly, I didn't even want to go but I knew that I would feel guilty if I did not. Was there only about 45 minutes and worked thru some super sets. Actually got a pretty good burn going. Gonna try and get a quick workout on tomorrow as well with a focus on a good rack dead lift. Hoping to pull some massive wright tomorrow.
