    lol. I'm laughing at something Ive been studying and practicing having to do with a scientist this post just reminded me of it anyways....

    Today was legs I switched to the three way split(and only one strait set) so I'm really not doing Dc Im trying out new exercises and doing light workouts(ok all the ***** jokes and light days what are they jokes can go here) 1. I don't want my legs bigger. 2. a cruise to give me body a break, along with testing my elbow.

    The Intra-aid went right before my last set for the day because I'm used to the two way split and this is my first time trying to three way split and the workouts are a lot faster. two way split takes a longgg time.

    *Had the Intra-aid with about 35 oz of water and as usual it was tasty. Again, I so used to it now I forget what its like to not drink it. When it's taking away I'll know(and feel it) Be fortunate this has been brought to the market, taste it and taste the difference=) *(along with the fact there ingredients work if you know your bodybuilding supplements.

    Ok calves on this leg press machine(life fitness) is the brand I think)(Dc pre-contest style)
    130- 12 or so times. (I lost my log book and in till my blast starts Im just going without it)

    lying leg curl- 110- 15 x-20 x's

    smith very close footed squats 45 and 25- 6 x's (I had so much more gas left in the tank and I'm cruising so I'm not going to wear myself out-yeah guess you can say it was a tampon workout, thats okay though I used to go to absolute failure trying to beat my lb's on the three way split and got worn out easily. Its best if your feeling worn beat the perevious week, don't go in till you don't have an ounce of energy to you left) Training like someone has a bullet to your head is useful at times but not 100 % all the time. the body needs to recovery at certain times.

    yeah it took my poundage down alot comparing to the wider stance. that's the reason i do them the sweep. Skip la cour (the manformation guy)said he couldn't get his sweep to grow and since he started doing closer positioned squats the sweep came up.

    Ok I joined a new gym with elite equipment(don't get me wrong the other has things that this one doesn't, I'm speaking overall though)

    Today was a Nautilus fly chest machine(that put no basically no pressure on my arm) 70 lbs i think... repped it out(will have to get log-book, lost mine)

    Nautilus lateral rise machine repped out

    triceps nautilus dip machine repped out

    Intra-aid after workout thirty ox which was good. This time any amount is good to me. sure cold water and more sometimes makes it taste better. I'm just happy to have it.
    The main point I make is the fact that these ingredients work like a charm and the taste is nice.(nicer than anything Ive tasted, unless purple wrath did taste better its been like six months, but comparing now to then it taste better) purple wrath had a fuzzy taste imho. also this beats out optimum nutrition's bcaa which was chalky and todays standards people would call it gross(you guys have it good compared to back in 02-03. You know your serious is you down nasty tasting stuff.

    Correct. from what I see that's why I joined because better equipment to work with my body with the rahab process.(which its really not an injury anymore, its more of rehabbing it, which is great news. my elbow specialist actually told me to what Im doing is a good idea, repping it out and seeing if there's any pain, instead of diving in and chancing it) Animal flex has been treating me good.

    Then it is all good news man. Glad to hear this. It's always great to be on the mend and rebounding back.

    You've been on a steady incline of progression in here sy. Very motivating bro. I'm glad you got to be one of our loggers and get to try the IA. It seems you've really put it to good use. Making the most of every workout while rehabbing.

    yeah this is a little off subject. Layne Norton had pec injury and is rehabbing it or its almost ready. He says bcaa's and hmb(I know hmb is a precursor to Lucine so i don't see how leucine just wouldn't work which i think it would instead of hmb , Layne Norton says hmb) prevent muscle wasting and he only lost 7 lbs of muscle(which if you look at seven lbs of beef in the store its still a lot) anyways that's not bad at all for not doing any lifting.

    This has helped me retain muscle I think i would have lost.In fact i believed I have gained muscle from working the legs and starting back on upper body. Esp when i was doing one arm only training I gained a good five lbs on Intra-aid. It was the Bcaa's and beta alanine, which I also dosed my own supply of ba at like 4 -6 g's a day. Beta alanine works for me very well i must say. Credit to bcaa's as well.

    The various aa's are known to help with muscle waisting for sure. I think the full benefit of BA is yet to be uncovered. If this combination has helped you out as you say then once again I'm really glad you were chosen to log this. It shows the potential of the product to be versatile to the users needs.

    No small part of your recovery and progress is credit to what you've put into it though bro. We gotta fight for what we want and hold onto it with a death grip.

    man today my forearm was hurting, too much from yesterday. Ive iced it twice and will again. yesterday i wore w wrap but not my tight wrap,which seems to help) could have been that. I'm backing off and will into do anything that causes even the littlest bit of pain for this to heal. It feels like shin splints kind of deep in my forearm. will be stretching more and icing more. This seems to help alot. and if I have too will take two weeks off.

    today was legs

    did the intra-aid , got the tingles and got a boost of energy during prone leg curls. Ver nice energy boost.(tingles still suck but it works so thats all that matters to me)

    seated calve raises(Dc pre-contest style)(wow this machine is way different than an older gym and have you use lighter weight but boy does it work!) 25 lbs- 13x's
    one foot at a time 25-8 x's (dc) pre contest oouch Im sore
    dumbell between my shoes(trib muscle) 20 lbs- 50 x's

    Nautilus prone leg curl 80 lbs- 15 x's

    Hack squat 45 and 25= 20 x's

    Hope your forearm gets better...

    I don't like that tingling feeling either from the BA but it definitely helps!

    Today

    nautilus chest machine(basically no pressure on elbow) 80 lbs-30 x's

    homon db press 20 lbs-25 x's

    Did the Intra-aid with 35 ox of water mmmm. Today was my last day . I'm going to miss it and when i have the money, i'll buy a tub.

    nautilus tri extension machine 30 lbs 100 lbs, 30 with one hand 7 x's joints, tendons, ligaments were popping too much had to quit.

    Ive been icing stretching, warming up and using my wrap tightly.

    Final review

    taste : best i ever had.

    ingredients: if you know anything you know these work just like any other ingredients. these have bcaa's and beta alanine and there main ingredients. the thing why i would buy it again is the taste. Taste is better than any other bcaa mix Ive ever tried.

    Thanks for the opportunity Universal/Animal. I'll be using your products as I have since I got into bodybuilding. Great company you are(that's Yoda talk O well)

    Ha ha! a Yoda review Very nice.

    Glad you like the IA man. I was telling another guy that I think they should paint a frown face at the bottom of the tub because that is how you feel when you pull your last serving out LOL!

    It was great being able to see you make the progress you did during your rehab bro. Glad that Universal got to be a part of it.
