Snag continues his off-season REDEFINing
- 02-17-2013, 10:11 AM
for those that missed egg mcsnag earlier itt
(still eating this majority of time fro breakfast, prolly 5x weekly)
soo..since i obviously preach importance of diet (not only preach it, but practice it daily), thought maybe it was time to show my rough construct of daily eating..not often do i show a "protocol" anymore - simply because i tweak things quite often (intentionally), just as i do my training etc
i don't want to get caught up in a "well you said you do this, and now you're doing that" type of wasteful conversation
but for now, on my 4000cal diet, generally speaking..something like this:
meal #1: breakfast, comes in ~650-750cals
pre/postWO nutrition (shake): 700-900cals
meal #2: postWO meal, ~450cals
meal #3: 475-550cals
meal #4: 350-425cals
meal #5: 550-700cals
meal #6: most always a shake, ~350-550cals
so you can see, there is built in play, and easy maneuverability
on nonworkout days, of course the pre/post shake goes away..i may (or may not) add cals in at other feedings to partially make up for the missing cals, generally it is a simple matter to just eliminate the cals altogether, as they are not needed in a non-energy expending day..also, since some of these cals surrounding workout are simple (ie dextrose) or simple-compound (ie brown rice syrup), i don't need to consume them if not training
this has been my basic working platform for much of this log..today, i begin the dive into lower cals for a couple days (part of my plan as well), so again simple elimination of the nonpreferred cal sources (ie shakes surrounding training) can easily be eliminated -- whether i am training or not

2/17 MAX PUMP update: off-day from training
nothing really new to add, effects still going strong..only thing to add is today, taking upon empty stomach @rising, no stomach effects - however, did get a splitting headache not long afterwards, and it remains in force currently (getting ready to take some advil right now)
this is a first, and obviously not even sure if related to supp at all, simply offering an observation
later in day: also i got some itchyness going on, and skin flushing around neck/shoulder region..was not first i have noticed this, but by far the most profuse (which is why i hadn't said anything previously, as this phenomenon was pretty minute and limited in occurrence, and i wanted to be sure before i attributed to MP)
2/18 MAX PUMP update:
so no killer headache today, and so far no itching or flushing..this is pleasant, perhaps was just blip?
as for workout today tho: oh let's just make it simple and say: straight 5's across the board

also: thought i would drop a lil hint here..
be on the lookout for some cool Finaflex beta logging opportunities, as we have a whole slew of products we are readying to unleash on the world

some pics from today..wasn't even an arm day, but pump was happening so took couple pics
(i moved on the one shot, so is goofy - but thought it looked cool anyway LOL)
it was, however, leg day
(man..i gotta shave the wheels uggh)
MAX PUMP today - simply exquisite
endurance was simply off the freakin chain, strength at new levels..went up to 375x6 for ATG squats
now, i am not a strongman, don't pretend to be, but let me explain that i do not use wraps/suit/belt or any such thing, i'm all raw all the time (well except fro gloves, gotta keep my hands pretty)..but this effort today was just on, felt like i could squat my damn house
02-20-2013, 05:02 PM
02-20-2013, 08:34 PM
^^ rawman, not strongman LOL
i think it's time to move into extended stay at lower caloric intake/moderated macros, for now
of course this could change (always, change), but really think now is time to make my move
i can correct later if need be..
would like to thank EBF inc for sending me some Recompadrol, will use this as a weapon in my arsenal..been awhile since i used gda's, but always had great success with them in past efforts
we're gonna see how sliced snags can get natty, before i call on some Finaflex hormonal help down the road....
really wishing i had more MAX PUMP to aid me tho
last dose coming up tomorrow

Yeah I will be sad when MAX PUMP is running out also. Right now I have a while to go lucky me I was salivating looking at you all with it now I got mine late you all will be salivating that I have mine.

Just throwing this out there, you can catch it and put it in your pocket, or you can kindly disregard it, but I'm willing to log anything you are willing to send my way. PXB is the jam so far.
Also, my dumb ass just found this log because I don't know my way around with a computer. The phone app kinda limits some things.
You're a big dude. That is all.

LOL is all good troopster..welcome aboard
glad you are njoying the PX Black!
MAX PUMP final review
1) Vascularity/Pump (1-5) was more impressed by pump effects, than by vascularity..seeing Al get roadmapped out in our promo thread really made me dream of having the same happen..alas, i'm not really a vascular dude, and always have to be pretty lean before ropes start appearing
that said - vascularity was increased certainly - just not as pronounced or noticeable as the pump aspect
solid 4.5 rating
2) Muscle Endurance/Stamina (1-5) this category simply was ungawdly..endurance went up markedly, and i noticed some sessions i just could not get tired..strength was typically almost as good by end of training, as it was when i started (as silly as that may sound)
total 5 rating
3) Muscle Strength (1-5) during this period i am not really training for strength per se, but rather more of a bodybuilding approach (higher reps/lighter yet still substantial weight etc)..that is not to say i didn't have mometns where i busted out some weights -- couple squat days i pushed the envelope, and was blown away by where my strength levels were at..also, i tie in overall strength (ie - strength at completion of training vs. strength at beginning) in this category, so it kind of mirrors the category above in that aspect, for me
4) Overall Physical Performance (1-5) honestly - had mostly ups, no complaints..only one bad day that i can think of off top of my head
strong 4.5 rating
5) Overall Opinion of Product (1-5)... How much do you like this product???
in a nutshell - i am in love
would be purrfekt, were it not for a few isolated instances of upset stomach (they were brief, passed quickly) and one isolated day where i itched like crazy and had blotches of red all over (face was so red, looked like i was gonna have a heart attack LOL)
since we've run betas, some testers have added their own findings of betaine nitrate, and all the thorough and extensive testing it has undergone in different capacities..that in mind, let me say that i notice some of these effects, being:
*nitrogen retention, seeming to make my high-protein diet all the better
*improved anaerobic/aerobic performance capabilities/bloodflow improvement, which translated into unending stamina + increased power output
and yes (cover your eyes, o sensitive ppl) - i did notice improved bloodflow to certain, ahh, bodyparts that are not exactly targeted in the weight room
so again: all things considered, phenomenal product indeed..were it not for the minor and brief issues, this would score perfectly
FINAL OVERALL RATING: 4.5
Finaflex, you guys have done it again

Looking at your new pic there, I got to thinking "he looks like he's on" and now I read your review and there it is.... increase in Protein synthesis this is one of the key reasons we gain mass using anabolic s... think what this means for PCT and bridging between cycles. Keeps the fuggin ball rolling.

i look like i'm "on" eh DW?
gee, i haven't heard that one before (and long before i ever thought about using anabolics)
is a good point to discuss tho: i will always tell you, i am a product of my consistency..sure, i may have decent genetics (i'n no freak tho), and perhaps on the side of meso as you say, but the unqualified biggest key for me is what i do day-in/day-out..
my hi-frequency training plays a big part as well..this shows, if i take couple days off from training; or, couple days eating like shyte
the genetic part helps, when i can look like shyte tho, and within a short period of instituting my daily regimen (controlled on all points), look fairly decent again..big thing is: after continued consistency to a certain extent (looking better), when something like a MAX PUMP can be dropped into play on top of everything else, yes it can make a dramatic difference in my appearance
things are in a good spot, at the current time
next run of anabolics gonna be the best yet
