    Haiz gets FREAKY with Neovar 2.0


    Get Freaky: Nevoar 2.0

    About Me and This Log!

    Just wanted to say thanks to AN for giving me the chance to log Neovar 2.0. I've used the original and loved the insulin-mimicking components, but I've never been a huge fan of CEE. When I saw that 2.0 did not have CEE, I was thrilled. Hopefully the tried in true mono, in conjunction with the phosphocreatine will prove to be a stellar combo. This log has taken a bit for me to start, but now that it is underway, things should roll along nicely!

    Diet-wise, I'm pretty standard. About 40-45% carbs, 30% Protein and 25% or so fat. It varies from day to day. On my workout days, I take in around 3600-3700 calories, with off days a bit below that number. As of now, my training looks like:

    Upper Body Power
    Lower Body Power
    Off
    Chest/Back Hypertrophy
    Legs/Traps Hypertrophy
    Arms/Shoulders Hypertrophy

    Power days contain a few basic movements, with rep ranges around 3-6. Hypertrophy days are more 8-15 rep oriented, with short rest periods and supersets. As of now, I rarely perform cardio, as I save that for dieting. HIIT however, will be performed at some points throughout the log. Workout #1 starts today!

    Here are some pics:

    Thoughts

    Amazing workout for sure. Kept everything short of failure (as I go to failure on power days) and really focused on good form and the mind-muscle connection. Strength felt good and endurance was definitely a notch above where it usually is. I'd assume this is from a combo of the supplement and me actually getting sleep for once!!

    When the workout was done, I felt like I could have kept going. Great pump everywhere today as well. Not too much else to note on the first day, but definitely a good start!

    ... So, I've got to ask . . How you gonna be able to determine whether it's the Neovar 2.0 that's working or the APS Plasmagen Nitrate [that you're logging on bb.com's forum] ?

    .... and both sponsored ?!

    I've been using Neovar 1.0 for over 2 months and the nitrate log has been put on hold for the moment.

    Thoughts

    Pretty good leg workout here. Admittedly, I feel like it could have been a bit better, but I got some good work in nonetheless. I still haven't decided how I like to hold the bar on front squats the most yet. I'm leaning towards the corss grip at the moment. Next week, I'll probably drop the weight down a bit and just focus on holding the bar perfectly.

    Lunges felt great and supersetting them with leg extensions make my quads scream for mercy. Definitely got a nice pump going on all around. Calves went well and I'm really focusing on them, as they are a weak bodypart for me. Felt great today though.

    Neovar has been good so far in terms of fullness/endurance. I don't expect the creatine to kick in for a bit, so nothing major to report there. Still a good start however and I'm looking forward to continuing to use it.

    Thoughts

    Wow - GREAT workout. Strength on DB Presses was okay to start, but dipped quickly after the supersets and minimal rest time between them (1 minute). Supersets were not terribly bad today, although the superslow side laterals made me want to scream.

    The arms routine was something I read about a while ago and have used on and off. It has been VERY effective for short spurts of time. The pump I had going was beyond incredible and I could barely move my arms by the time it was all over. If the type-up is too confusing, you perform the three exercises, all in a row, for three rounds. It was brutal to say the least!

    Neovar still going well. I'm taking it 30 minutes or so before my highest carb meals (morning/pre-wo). If I should change that, just let me know guys. Thanks!

    Thoughts

    HOLY S***! One of the best workouts EVER. INSANE pumps and endurance folks! Anyways, I'll get to the specifics in a bit, but some comments about my new routine:

    I have been writing out a program for a while now, that I could stay on during school, that:

    A.) Wouldn't bore me to death
    B.) Give me a nice mix of strength/hypertrophy
    C.) Allow me to workout at least 5 days a week

    So, I am now a bodypart split that looks like:

    Chest/Biceps/Forearms
    Legs/Calves
    Off
    Shoulders/Tri's/Abs
    Back/ (more calves)
    Off
    Repeat.

    I get to workout 2 on, 1 off, and I love the combos of bodyparts. Anyways, the split will remain the same, but the program goes in 3 week cycles. I go through the split 3-4 times with a volume phase (reps from 6 and upward, more sets). After the volume phase, I'll head into a 3-4 week power phase (3-8 reps). Volume phase has short rest times, faster tempos, supersets, etc... (as you see above). I will cycle back and forth between these two. Depending on strength gains and size gains, one might go for a bit longer than the other. For example, if strength gains are high, but size isn't where I want it to be, I'll for 4 weeks on the volume and 3 weeks on the power (if you catch my drift). All in all, I'm really excited to get rolling on this.

    As for the volume workouts, you will see me employing a lot of intensity techniques like supersets, partial reps, constant tension, different tempos, etc...If you have any questions, just yell~~!

    Back to the workout though. Definitely a great one. Incline's started off with a slow tempo and rested for about 75 seconds between sets. Last set was a drop-set. The superset of incline hammers + flies nearly killed me though! The ascending and descending sets for the flies really added to the pain! Finished off the chest with some fairly light Cable crossovers to get some extra blood into the muscle.

    As for biceps, after the crazy BB curls, I could have stopped. I could barely move my arms. However, I couldn't pass up a chance to get some hammers and more curls in, so I ripped out a few sets back to back. Threw in some forearms and I was done....BAM!

    As for neovar...strength was up a bit on Incline presses. All the other stuff was so super-setted I wasn't even looking/trying for strength. Endurance was through the roof though and pumps were unreal~! I was as full as ever. Hopefully the trend continues!

    Log's looking good so far, Haiz. Like your layout and your workouts ...With your meals post-NeoVar dose, you may want to make them closer, say 15-20 minutes, instead of 30 minutes after dosing...Apart from that, all looks sweet so far, dude. Keep it up; eyes are watching (and if you have any more queriess, we're only a PM away, LOL)

    Thoughts

    WELL...the pump in my legs today was INSANE!!! After I finished the first supersets (A1 and A2 means supersetted), I could barely walk up the stairs. Still though, I managed to blast the quads even more with some smith squats supersetted. Then I moved on to hammies and calves. Some GREAT work in there.

    Endurance was great again today. Perhaps the creatine is beginning to take effect and the enhanced shuttling of carbs to the muscle/glycogen storage has led to more sustained energy and stamina. All I know is this workout was brutal, but I nailed it!

    One of the techniques I've been using a lot is constant tension (no lockout). This really increases the difficulty of anything, as you get no recovery time, as opposed to if you locked out the weight. Just another trick I like to use to punish myself!

    Tomorrow is off, but I'll probably do some Low Intensity Cardio. Until then..izza:

    Thoughts

    Another good workout. Weights are not terribly impressive at the moment, as I'm really focusing on intensity/growth vs. strength right now. Training like this generally gives me some great gains in endurance. Rest between sets was kept to 1-1:30 minutes.

    The second superset for shoulders was NUTS. The 3 way laterals are great, supersetted with rear flies and some presses at the end to finish off the shoulders. Took it easy on rear flies, as I'll be hitting back tomorrow.

    Triceps felt good. Close-Grip bench felt easy at 145, but I kept the rest between supersets low, so I didn't want to increase the weight and compromise form. The last exercise for tri's was great and really hit them from 3 different angles. Skulls to the chin KILL me.

    For abs, I threw in 60 second planks supersetted with lying leg raises. Then I hit up some crunches and hanging leg raises. Good stuff!

    Endurance was great and I had a nice pump going on. Not too much else to say. As of now I'm pounding down my PWO meal of a couple tuna sandwiches...YUM.

    how are you liking neovar? Feeling the effects yet? speaking of growth i have had my dad using this stuff. 1/2 inch growth after bottles use a long side RPM and drive. Unreal results IMO. Of course he used to be big so it may have been muscle memory

    Liking it a good deal. Always liked the original, but the addition of the better forms of creatine + Gymnema is great IMO.

    Endurance + fullness are way up. Strength is going up, but slowly, as this is not my strength phase.

    Thoughts

    AMAZING workout tonight. First superset was intense, pullups were done with an explosive tempo and the hammer pulldowns were done nice and slow with a 4 second strectch at the top = PAIN BABY~! This had my lats pumped up even after just 1 time through. Finished the workout with some great rowing supersets +Shrugs. Workout lasted about 55 minutes and I was sweating like an animal by the end....I think I scared some ladies with the intensity today = goal accomplished!

    Endurance was good today, pumps were GREAT. Strength wasn't really tested for per-say, but +25X8 on pullups wasn't to failure (could have gotten 2-4 more), which is a good sign.

    Overall another great day!

    Thoughts

    Got to the gym last night around 7:30. With a 10 minute warmup and some cooldown, I was in and out in around an hour and ten minutes, so I managed to squeeze all of the lifting into about a 50 minute timeframe, which made this quite the test of endurance as well. Now, for the workout:

    Incline DB's felt great. Better form than last week and more reps = PROGRESS BABY. Moved to the flat hammer press next, which felt good, although the first set was a tad heavy (eyes bigger than muscles at this point). Did a couple different techniques on the press (1 arms + 1+1/2 reps) and supersetted it with some machine flies. Now, when I do flies I really focus on the squeeze/contraction at the top...LOVE that. Finished off with slow cable crossover and pullovers. I know some people do pullovers on back day, but I've always felt it more in my chest, so I do them with that. Really lowered the weight on them and focus on getting a great strectch and contraction.

    Next, I hit up some biceps. Started with a nice set of 95X8. Rested for a bit and then went into my massive drop-set. After the drop set was over, I could barely move my arms! I could have stopped there, but I finished them off with some hammer curls and prone spider curls (enjoy these) focused on the contraction at the top + full strectch at the bottom.

    After biceps, I threw in some supersets for forearms. At the moment, I'm training forearms on a 6-12-25 scheme. I.E. - superset three forearm exercises: 1 at 6 reps, 1 at 12 and 1 at 25. Definitely good stuff and my grip has improved tremendously since I have implemented the plan.

    Overall, really had a good workout. Endurance was definitely there, strength progression was there, and the pumps were DEFINITELY there (obviously a result of supplements + carbs + this type of training). Not much else to note at the moment.

    Also, I've gotten a couple PM's about it, so I'll address it here. While I do indeed do cardio during my bulk phases (usually HIIT twice a week), I will not resume this practice until I get back to school, because as it is, I am walking 2 miles to the metro in the morning and 2 miles back at night. Once I get back to school, I'll start doing 30 minutes of cardio after shoulder's/tri's and Chest/Biceps day and HIIT once a week.

    Thanks man!

    Judging by the mirror, scale, and effects in the gym to date, this stuff is a real winner.

    I liked the original, but this stuff is MUCH better.

    Nice to have you guys in here!

    As for the spider curl, I do in with a bench at a high incline with my chest on it. Makes you use ALL biceps, no cheating, w/ a great stretch at the bottom.

    Thoughts

    DAMN! This workout left my lower body begging for mercy. Incredible stuff.

    Front squats were done light to really focus on form + get a better handle of how exactly I want to setup my grip/hands on these. Finally got comfortable on them today and I could have repped 145 more, but I wanted to keep perfect form. Definitely looking forward to incorporating these more now that I have the form down.

    The second superset for legs was BRUTAL. Pre-exhausted quads w/ extensions and then went straight to a close stance, slow tempo, constsant tension hammer squat. This was painful, but my legs loved it. Threw in some SLDL's and hammie curls to finish the legs off. Also added some intense calf training in. My calves are a definite weak spot and this high rep/intense training of them has been the only thing they have responded to, so I'm sticking to it for the time being.

    Overall, another great day in the gym. Tomorrow is a day off. It is my dad and step-mothers 10th anniversary, so Paps is cooking up filets and scallops...YEAH!

    Thoughts

    Hit up the gym today after getting a great night of sleep. Felt really well rested and ready to rock the weights. Workout started off GREAT with DB Shoulder Press. Started with 60's (did them 8 times to failure/close last week) and did them 8 times easily. Decided to do the 65's and managed to get 8 good reps. Then I went back to the 60's and did a nice triple drop set. After that, moved on to the hammer press shoulder machine, which I set up to intentionally have a maximum ROM (starting from mid chest area). Because of the large ROM, I lowered the weight a good deal. Supersetted it with lying side laterals, which were new for me. Completely removed any potential cheating and really torched my medial delts. I then finished off delts with some cable work.

    Moved onto triceps on the close-grip bench. Did a couple sets of 145, but it did not feel good/strong. The strong pressing from the start of the workout definitely effected me here. I decided to stop after to sets and moved on to something else. Since my tri's had already taken a beating from the pressing, I kept the volume down a bit and did a couple supersets. Nothing fancy, but the tri's still got rocked.

    Overall a good workout, but tricep numbers could have been better. Endurance was still good, as well as energy. Pumps were top notch as usual.

    Damn!

    This seems to be working out pretty good for ya.

    I think AN products are solid, probably the best i've tried when concerning the igf2. So, I have a very high interest in seeing how this turns out. I got about 300 bucks of stuff sitting in my nutra cart, but I may be able to remove about 3 items and sub with this, if it turns out as positive as i've been told it would....

    Yeah, subb'd to this one.

    Nice to have you. This is definitely a good supplement.

    Is it magic? no. With proper eating/use though it has definitely increased endurance/fullness/strength.

    Thoughts

    Good workout. Threw in a couple quick sets for calves at the end as well. workout could have been better, but I was rushed, as I had my little sister (almost 5) for the day and the day-care at the club closed at 1. Managed to squeeze everything in at around 45 minutes, so I was toast by the end. Strength was okay/good. Endurance was really quite good and fullness was incredible today.

    Things will be pretty busy this coming week. Last week of work for my summer job + I need to get a bunch of stuff in order for my apartment. Went out yesterday and bought some new kitchen stuff. My pride and joy is my new rice cooker = LOVE. Also bought a huge baking pan so that I can bake a bunch of chicken all at once and store it.

    Loving the diet. I've been doing milk + fruit smoothies for the meals in which that is called for. Also sludge when I'm rushed is DELICIOUS! Did Chocolate Scivation Whey Today + Peanut Butter + blueberries. So damn good it felt like all the flavors were having sex in my mouth.

    Off day tomorrow should allow me to get some **** done, but I'll be eagerly anticipating a massive chest/biceps day on monday!

    ROCK ON.

    Thoughts

    Another solid volume workout in the bag! Next time I hit chest/biceps, it will be all about POWER. This time however, I did make some nice strength gains. After my first set of inclines with 75's, I decided to go for the 80's and got them for a solid 8 reps. After that I moved on to some supersets to really dominate my chest w/ minimal rest times. Did a lot of slow eccentric chest stuff today which kept the weight down, but the intensity up.

    Biceps were good as well. No real major increases in curl strength, but endurance was way up for the drop sets. Pump in my biceps throughout the bicep protion of the workout was unreal. I could barely move my arms!

    Very productive lift though, especially considering the time restraints. I had to work till 5:30 preparing talking points for the undersecretary about hunger action month. Then I had to babysit my little sis till 9. Managed to get to the gym by 9:30 and finish the workout by 10:30 (which is when I like to be in bed by since I wake at 5). Came home a threw together some whole wheat panckes with cottage cheese on top for my PWO meal. YUM. Didn't get to bed till 1 though after preparing foods/materials for today.

    I will say that my last dose of neovar for the day was before my pre-wo meal and even later at night (after my PWO meal) I was feeling a bit hypo. I slammed down some whole wheat toast and eggs before bed, which made me feel better though.

    Looking forward to LEGS LEGS LEGS today though! HELL YEAH!
