    PRODUCT DETAILS:

    ANABOLIC EDGE by PALO ALTO LABS



    Let's face it. Your body hates extra muscle. While muscle is required for function, mobility, strength, and protection, it takes an awful amount of time and energy to build and maintain real muscle mass. In order to boost muscle mass, the body requires more protein and sleep and it has to strengthen the joints, ligaments and tendons, it also takes 100 calories each day to maintain one pound of muscle. Compare that to the body's favorite tissue: fat, the most dense source of stored energy and a reserve fuel tank for the body in time of crisis. The body loves fat; it's easy to store, easy to maintain, and one pound of fat is 3500 extra calories for a rainy day.

    Your body's main goal is to maintain homeostasis (stability) throughout the day. When the body is stressed or influenced by external stimuli, it immediately releases hormones to counter the stressor or stimuli and bounce back to its optimal state of stability. But it's impossible to pack on muscle without swaying the balance away from the norm and into the Anabolic zone. In order to keep growing in size and strength, its imperative that you maintain the Anabolic zone, but all it takes is a bad day in the gym or a hiccup in your diet to swing your body out of the Anabolic zone and into catabolism, the state in which your body will actually break-down and consume your valued muscle tissue for energy.

    Illegal steroids are so successful thanks to their ability to lock you into the Anabolic zone, leaving you with clothes-tearing gains and a massive surge in strength. But for those who don't want to risk the side effects and legal concerns of steroids, what does it take to lock into the Anabolic zone? You need an ANABOLIC EDGE.

    Q. What is Anabolic Edge?


    Anabolic Edge is the world's first athletic performance enhancing product designed to promote extreme muscle growth while greatly enhancing your body's muscle endurance. Anabolic Edge can be used alone for extreme muscle building effects or used as part of your post pro-testosterone cycle support. Users of Anabolic Edge can expect to experience impressive gains in overall athletic endurance and anabolic activity resulting in dense, lean muscle growth.

    Q. What Does Anabolic Edge do?

    • Designed to rapidly increase ATP and Oxygen utilization
    • Increases Aerobic & Anaerobic Endurance
    • Enhances your body's ability for Aerobic & Anaerobic Recovery
    • Modulates estrogenic receptors while controlling Aromatase
    • Boosts Natural Testosterone Levels

    Q. What sets Anabolic Edge apart from all the other natural anabolics?

    Anabolic Edge works with your body to create the ultimate environment for maximum anabolic activity, enhanced energy and performance (without the use of stimulants), and increased oxygen utilization to help fuel your muscle and growth. Anabolic Edge's anti-aromatase properties help to ensure that your testosterone production is utilized to the fullest extent without losing excess testosterone to estrogen conversion. The only way to pack on lean, dense muscle is to alter your body's state of homeostasis towards a constant state of anabolism, thus allowing your muscles to consistently grow in size and strength rather than being broken down as a source of energy for the body.

    DIET:

    BULKING, BABY!!!!!!!!

    God it feels good to be off my perpetual cut!!



    Eating is one of my favorite things in the world to do, and I don't skimp on food. I am very meticulous with my diet, and I'm not the type to get tempted into eating crap. Monday through Friday my diet does not stray at all. Weekends my timing is usually a little off and I might miss a meal, but I will usually just combine more food into my other meals to make up for it. Sometimes I have a cheat meal once a week, sometimes I don't. Cheat meals for me are sushi, bbq, burgers, things like that; they are generally still very high in protein.

    According to Fitday, my workout day caloric intake is >5,752, and non-workout days is 4,791. LOL. I didn't realize it was that high, but I was losing weight at 3,700kcal, so what the heck.

    43/30/27 P/C/F

    Some people might say I am over-eating, and some people might say I am taking in too much protein (540g), but I'm sticking with what I've been doing cuz it works for me.

    Additionally, I drink at least 2 gallons of water every day, probably closer to 3. I rarely drink anything that isn't water.

    I will also be abstaining from alcohol completely while running this cycle.

    Meals are as follows:

    Meal 1:
    1 cup oatmeal, ground flax seed, 1 scoop ON, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, 1 cup egg whites, 2 whole eggs, cheddar cheese

    Meal 2:
    BIG chicken breast, spinach, almonds, 1 apple

    Meal 3:
    Tuna sandwich with salsa & mustard, & ground flax seed on 15-grain, 1 cup oatmeal, 1 scoop ON

    Meal 4:
    BIG chicken breast, spinach, 1 tomato, 100g whole grain pasta

    Pre-workout meal:
    1 cup oatmeal, 1 scoop ON

    Post-workout meal:
    1 cup oatmeal, 1 scoop ON, 1 banana

    Meal 5:
    BIG chicken breast, spinach, 1 tomato, 100g whole grain pasta

    Meal 6:
    3/4 lb. 93% lean ground beef, spinach, cheddar cheese



    Yes, I love oatmeal & protein. LOL.

    I take 4 Anabolic Pumps on workout days, 3 on non. AP before meals 1, 3, & my pre- and post-workout meals. Non-workout days I take my 3rd AP before meal 5.



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    TRAINING:

    (Preliminary. Still polishing this up.)


    I will be utilizing a new routine while on this cycle, consisting of 4 parts (labeled A1, B1, A2 & B2 below).

    'A' workouts will consist of Legs, Shoulders, & Arms.
    'B' Workouts will consist of Back, Chest, Calves, & Traps

    I will hit the gym 3 days a week (M, W, F), so I will be working each body part twice in any given 4 or 5-day period.

    Weeks 1 & 2 will consist of 12-15-rep sets.
    Weeks 3 & 4 will consist of 8-10 rep sets. (Heavier)
    Weeks 5 & 6 will consist of 4-6 rep sets. (Heavier)

    I hope to break some PR's by Week 6.

    WU = warm up
    * = superset

    A1 (Legs, Shoulders, Arms)

    WU, Squat (2)
    WU, Sumo Deadlifts (2)
    WU, Dumbbell Shoulder Press (2)
    Barbell Upright Row (2)
    Seated Rear Lateral Raises (2)
    WU, * Dumbbell overhead triceps extension (3)
    * Dumbbell curls (3)


    B1 (Back, Chest, Calves, Traps)

    WU, Dumbbell rows (2)
    Pull-ups (2)
    T-bar Row (2)
    WU, Incline Bench (2)
    Dips (2)
    Incline Dumbbell Flies (2)
    WU, Sled Calf Press (2)
    WU, Dumbbell shrugs (2)


    A2 (Legs, Shoulders, Arms)

    WU, Squat (2)
    Hamstring curls (2)
    WU, Barbell Overhead Press (2)
    * Front Raises (3)
    * Incline Dumbbell curls (3)
    WU, * Cable Lateral Raises (3)
    * Triceps extenstions (3)


    B2 (Back, Chest, Calves, Traps)

    WU, Dumbbell Rows (2)
    Chin-ups (2)
    Cable Row (2)
    WU, Incline Bench (2)
    Dumbbell press (2)
    Decline Cable Flies (2)
    WU, Sled Calf Press (2)
    WU, Dumbbell shrugs (2)


    I will work abs whenever I feel like it (not too worried about abs at the moment), and probably not do much cardio. I will stay relatively active on weekends.

    Thanks man. I've been tinkering with the routine on my own for about a month or so, and I think I finally landed on something I like. We'll see how it works out once I get started. I'm thinking it should be pretty effective though.

    Excellent question. When I submitted my application to test Anabolic Edge I said I'd like to run it with all those supps but would run it solo if that's what they wanted to see. Once I was selected, I asked Dave how he would like to see it run. That was my only real concern -- how could I gauge it's effectiveness as part of a huge stack? This response is straight from Dave (Palo Alto Labs):

    Im fine with your stack. I like to show the product both solo and with a stack so everyone can get an idea of its effectiveness. So while you cannot highlight the effects of the AE on its own, it will be cool to see it as a stack with the other products.
    There are 5 other testers, so I guess I will be the "throw a bunch of other cool stuff together and see how well it stacks" guy.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I misspelled Palo Alto (doh!) and got the go-ahead on some extra supps, but I couldn't change the title... And, this being my first log, I wanted to do it right!

    Minor updates


    Added my diet to post #1.

    Just placed an order @ Nutra. Threw in one of those MyoTapes so I can take accurate measurements. I'll try to stop by my old gym sometime next week to get my bf% done since they have calipers there. (I don't trust those stupid hand-held electronic devices.)

    Still gotta try to find someone (preferably a hot female) to take some half-nekkid pics of me next weekend.

    I also wanna note that I decided to take this past week off from the gym. I figure it would be good for me seeing as how I hadn't had an entire week off since December, and my body could probably use the break before I try breaking PR's in the coming weeks.

    This next week I'm gonna try to assess my strength on a few exercises and see where I stand. I'll do this again after my cycle to note any increases in strength.

    I guess that's it for now. I'm getting really anxious to get things started!!!

    Added some preliminary pics to post #2 cuz I was bored.

    Taking pictures of yourself in the mirror while flexing is harder than I thought it would be. Especially those back shots. I must've taken 40 pics of my walls.

    Haha, thanks, guys. But my body is deceiving. I just have a small frame and I'm pretty lean. A lot of people call me big, but I like to say I'm pretty big for a skinny guy. My chest/back could really use a bit more girth. You'll see when I finally get my measurements up. And I actually think I'm a little under 186 at the moment, but I'll record that accurately next weekend.


    As far as dosing, right now I'm leaning towards:

    Anabolic Edge: 2 - 2 - 2 (am, afternoon, pm)
    Activate Xrtreme: 2 - 2 (am, pm)
    Divanex: 2 (afternoon)
    IGF-2: 4 - 4 - 4 (am, pre-wo, pm)

    I'm planning to run everything for 40 days straight out and see what happens.

    D'oh!


    Well, I definitely won't be doing cardio anytime soon. After a tragic wiffle ball injury (yes, you heard correctly -- wiffle ball injury) I don't think I can put shoes on for the next couple days.

    I was running for a soft floater in my flip flops and hit a stone step dead on with my big toe. Basically, I was in mid-stride at full speed and my foot tried to go through the step. My toe ended up taking all the impact and pretty much exploded open and the skin ripped back in 3 directions. I had 3 huge strips of skin about an inch long just hanging there with this bloody mess of a toe left beneath it. I cleaned it up, through some Neosporin on it, folded the skin back over, and bandaged it up. Hopefully the skin will close back up and heal. So I'm walking around with my toe all bandaged up like it's broken or some ****. LOL. They're gonna love this at work tomorrow.



    Good thing I wasn't planning on doing much cardio. I don't think this will effect my lifting at all.

    I swear, these sort of things only happen to me....

    The bottle is damn sexy!

    Thanks again for the opportunity, Dave!

    From what I gather, this should be a pretty potent natural stack! I guess now would probably be as good a time as any to mention that I've never taken a test booster or AI outside of PCT, so this experience will definitely be something new for me. While I am not expecting PH/AAS type results from this stack, I do have high hopes.

    I'm gearing up to go to the gym here in a minute. First time since taking a week off. Probably just gonna do a light workout and do a couple strength assessments later in the week.

    Got confirmation earlier today that my order shipped from Nutra, so I should have the rest of my supps in by Wednesday!

    Nothing else to report, really. Still anxious as hell to get started. One more week!

While I am not expecting PH/AAS type results from this stack, I do have high hopes.

    You can say that again. Even without the AE, the large rise in free and total testosterone will be quite an experience. You're in for some fun times. By taking in that much divanil, it should build up in your bloodstream within about 7 days, and you will notice faster hair growth, aggression, more energy... just wait

    Dude, every time my neighbor comes home from NY (we grew up next door to each other) we always play wiffle ball, toss the football around, hit the batting cages... It's like we're kids again. (Not that I ever DON'T act like a big kid...) Good times.


    Speaking of, I cleaned my toe up again last night, and I think the skin is actually closing and healing. I think it should be good to go by the weekend. I'm gonna stay away from calves in the meantime (too much pressure on my toes), but I'll probably still do squats and deads.

    Oh, another thing I should mention... I have never done deadlifts before, EVER. Literally, never. I broke my back when I was 21 (slipped disc, slipped vertebrae, and a fracture in my lower lumbar), and between that and 3 knee operations my doctors had always told me to never do squats or deadlifts.

    Well, I started doing squats again this past year, and I'm gonna start doing deads (sumos, to be exact) this week and work them into my routine next week.

    So, for the record, I WILL NOT BE GOING CRAZY WITH SQUATS OR DEADS. I see some of you ****ers squatting and deadlifting 600+ lbs, and as much as I'd like to go balls to the wall heavy, I've gotta use my head. I don't wanna re-aggravate my spine, so I'll be doing these movements very slow and controlled, and I will not try maxing out on them. I shouldn't have a difficult time assessing strength increases, but I think I'll probably try to stay at 8 reps or more for both exercises. I'm absolutely gonna play these two exercises by ear. Other than that... I'm shooting for PR's on just about every other exercise.

    I'm sure it goes without saying but be careful man. Glad the toe is looking like it's healing proper.

    "You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me. Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon... with nail polish. These f*cking amateurs..."

    Hope the toe heels fast, and good luck with the deadlifts man. Great exercise, but play it safe, get your technique perfect and then increase weight. All of this I'm sure you know

    I did deadlifts for the first time on Wednesday. Sumos. Used a belt and I did them pretty light (135). I felt fine during the movement. But even @ that weight, they were brutal! I've definitely been missing out on a great exercise! I can tell that my grip will be the first thing to give out on these, so I'm gonna get to work on those forearms by doing some exercises at the end of each workout. I performed each rep very slow and controlled, and wanted to increase weight but resisted so I could be sure I had the movement correct. Will go up in weight for Monday's workout (A1). I sort-of did A1 on Wed, only I threw in barbell overhead presses instead of dumbbell presses, and it was crazy! Tonight is my last workout before I begin my supplements. I'm gonna do a variation of my B routine, omitting calves once again due to my toe injury.

    I'm glad I bought that Valeo belt from Nutra. Def a much needed investment. I put it to use on those deads, squats, and overhead presses and I loved it!

    Last couple things to note. I'm probably gonna have a drink or two tonight, and tomorrow I will surely be playing beer pong at a birthday party, so it might get ugly... But this is the last time I will drink until this log is completed.

    Oh, and Sunday I am going to a sushi buffet with this girl as a "going away" present. LOL. Too funny. But I <3 sushi.

    I'm gonna try not to use wraps for as long as possible just to keep grip-strength growing and in the equation.
