  1. Are you #&%*ing serious?!? ANABOLIC EDGE (Spons.), ACTIVATE XTREME, IGF-2 & PRIME!!!


    First of all, I would like to thank Palo Alto Labs for not only sponsoring my Anabolic Edge run and allowing me to stack it with these other products, but for being patient with me during my recovery from a ruptured hamstring suffered 2 days before my log was supposed to start. Once again I'd like to publicly apologize for the let down. But I'm back!

    THANK YOU PAL!!!

    Here is the bottle I received compliments of PALO ALTO LABS:



    And here is my stack:

    DIET:

    BULKING, BABY!!!!!!!!



    Eating is one of my favorite things to do in the world, 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 will not stray at all, however I will allow myself to eat EXTRA FOOD whenever I so desire, but only because I am bulking. 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.

    As long as I'm working hard I tend to build muscle relatively easily, but it is hard for me to put on weight. According to Fitday, my workout day caloric intake is >5,752, and non-workout days is 4,791. Maintenance calories for me is >3800kcal.

    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 on workout days), 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 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:
    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:
    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:
    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:

    My hamstring is still not 100%, but I am getting there, and I think I should be good to go in another week or so. Because of this, I will stick with a split routine as follows until I can fully attack my legs:

    Monday: Chest/biceps + hamstring rehab
    Wednesday: Back/triceps + hamstring rehab
    Friday: Shoulders + hamstring rehab

    Once my leg is better, I will incorporate a full leg day, and switch my routine up.

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

    QUESTION & ANSWER:


    Q: How are you going to guage Anabolis Edge's effectivness if you're taking so many supplements? And this is sponsored?

    A: Straight from Dave @ Palo:
    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.

    Q: But shaddow, why would you take all this stuff if you can't even lift legs yet? You're not even squatting yet??

    A: Because I can. Timing is everything for me right now. I have these supps sitting around, I'm antsy, I have things planned in the coming months, and quite frankly just cuz. If you don't like it, plain and simple, don't follow my log.


    Q: How are you planning on dosing this?

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

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

    Height: 6'1"

    Wow, talk about some detail for opening up with (and they call ME detailed ). Good luck on rehabbing your hamstring, Shaddow. Will be watching to see how you go; Activate Extreme and IGF-2 make for a mean bulking stack!

    Day 2: Monday, September 22

    Weight: 181.6 (+.8)

    I know it's probably still too early to say for sure, but I felt like it was a little bit easier to get out of bed this morning. I'd been having issues peeling myself out of bed the past few weeks. I slept 6 hours, woke up, took my IGF-2, went back to sleep for another half hour, and got up without problems. Not much else to report at this moment.

    Tonight I will be lifting chest & biceps. Looking forward to a killer workout.

    Yeah, I'm pretty stoked about this stack. I think this might be the most potent natural stack being run at the moment.

    No, I don't, but I keep hearing about how good the stuff is and I reeeeeaaaaally wanna try some. I just bought a 10lb bag of ON though. Literally, it should be at my house when I get home tonight. So who knows when I'll get around to picking some up... Dammit, someone needs to remind me next time I start running low!

    Lesson One: Acetylcholinesterase are enzymes that metabolize neurons or action potentials in the cleft of the sarcolemma, this endocrinological process occurs in the alpha stages precipitating the excitation of the sliding filament theory, which is currently the most scientifically accepted theory of muscle contraction.

    I have RPM on hand that I take occasionally. Sometimes I just do straight caffeine. Today will probably be a caffeine day. I've been chugging down those Spike energy drinks before workouts occasionally. 300mgs of caffeine in each can. Wooo, doggy!

    And

    Do you always go water w/ your Optimum Nutrician (ON) Whey???

    I just use water, bro. Whether it's an actual shake or oatmeal, I've been doing water for years, and don't see any reason to change it. I actually don't drink milk at all. I don't think I'm 100% lactose intolerant (my mother is), but it really weighs me down and I feel sluggish when I drink milk.
