    Day 20 - 10 / 26 / 08


    TRAINING
    QUADS

    185 x 12
    215 x 12
    95 x 10 (2 sec down, 2 sec up)

    CALVES
    for calves i did the "VOLCOM DEATH STRETCH" routine. and well it was death.

    Seated Calf Raises
    30 reps, then a 1 minute long stretch in the bottom position of the movement where the calves are fully stretched out.

    2 plates, neutral foot position
    2 plates, toes in
    1 plate, 1 25lb, toes out

    NOTES
    well my calves were definitely toast, along with the rest of my leg. now that im looking at the workout again, it doesnt look like i did much. i kinda stopped myself because i was feeling good, and my legs were shaking after i finished hack squats and SLDL, so i felt that i had sufficiently worked my legs.

    squats went well, but im still kinda figuring it all out. im definitely improving each time, but i still need a lot of work. and my wrists hurt like hell after each set. if someone can give me a few pointers, im allllllll ears.

    pump was real good. focus was good. aggression was good. my music even paused for my entire 225 set, right at the beginning, and i did the whole set with no outside forces fueling my aggression, and i gotta say, i sound like a panzy when i grunt during lifting haha. oh well. it get it done. thats all that matters.

    NOTES
    had an INCREDIBLE pump the whole workout. arms felt almost too heavy to move, chest felt like it was blown up to twice its size. shoulder felt a little uncomfortable, but it wasnt bad at all. i owe this to the osteo-sport. keeps me all lubed up (no homo).

    libido is kinda going down back to normal. aggression, focus, and recovery are still going well.

    and today, about 30 mins after lifting, i ate a nice meal of chicken breast, brown rice, and some veggies. and about 45 mins after that my girlfriend decided to ask me to come do a crossfit routine with her. while i tried explaining i needed to let my legs recover, and my back and chest to recover, and let my WHOLE BODY recover, she still insisted i go, so i did. heres the workout i did:

    1 mile jog
    50 underhand pull ups
    100 step ups, each leg
    100 sit ups, 50 hanging knee raises
    about 20 or so sprints

    it was nice doing sprints and little bit of cardio outside, but the step ups were KILLIN my hams and quads. i made it comfortable as possible tho, doing sets of 10-15. and i added a little spring using the foot which wasnt elevated.

    so, all in all, my whole body is completely toast. im dead tired. and HUNGRY. ive been eating a lot today. which is nice. ill probably have around 3500-3700 cals under my belt by the end of tonight.

    also. important note. i decided to bump dose to 6 caps starting wednesday. will be a 2-2-2 dosing schedule. or maybe 2 morning, 3 pre w/o, and 1 at night. who knows?! i wish i had another bottle to play around with the dosing. i think it would be awesome to run this at 6 caps, or 2 weeks at 4 caps, 3 weeks at 6 caps. idk. or maybe run it alongside a bottle of divanex. sigh. i hate being broke.

    NOTES
    woo baby. so i couldnt contain myself, and just decided to bump it to 6 caps today. it was VERY noticeable come gym time. pump was ridiculous, aggression was way up, focus was stim like, and i felt a lot more explosive with all my lifts. i felt like a V8, running on 10 cylinders, ya follow me?

    very happy with the workout. i decided to hit bis and forearms today because i was so disappointed with my bi/forearm workout from saturday. this surpassed that workout, and then some. and i added delt because i knew i wasnt going to do a full shoulder routine because my shoulder has been feeling a little more painful than normal and i wanted to just do something light, but intense, and i succeeded in both respects.

    ill have about 4 or 5 more days with 6 caps a day. so ill be ending the log this weekend.

    tmw ive got deads, back, and traps. im pretty stoked. til tmrw....

    NOTES
    second day of new dosage. libido took a nice jump. aggression seemed about the same, maybe a little bit higher. focus was excellent. pump was incredible. im still on a high after hiting 355 for a single. i didnt hit as much on the hammer strength rows, but i also did not use my straps for it like last time, and my body was pretty beat after the deads, so im not too worried about it. i was going to do some more trap stuff, but judging from from DOMS today, my traps got plenty of work from the deads.

    closing in on the last couple days of MASS FX. im feeling a lot bigger. weight is around 193. shirts are tighter, sleeves are tighter, boxers are a little tighter around the leg, and my pants are fitting a little bit more snug around the waist, but im still at about a 34 waist. and with how much food im eating, im expecting fat gain. no biggy.

    NOTES
    very good leg sesh. my wheels were tremblin walking down the stairs back to the locker room. leg press felt great. hack squat felt great. the workout was a little bit inspired by Hany Rambod's FST-7 routine, where you do 7 "pump" sets before your compound movements to get the bloood flowing. sort of a "preload". and i liked the routine very much. had a great pump in my legs the whole workout.

    and the calf workout was a dave palumbo inspired routine. (just got my MD in the mail today and i was reading it before the gym haha). he says only one set of 10-12 reps at a maximum amount of weight is needed for calves, one set on seated, one set on standing. so i decided to try it out. may give a few weeks and see if i see any improvements.

    anyways. been eating good today. libido took another leap today. couldnt stop thinking about.....stuff. umm focus was good, aggression was good, pump was great especially considering its usually nonexistent with leg. my legs are finally started to have a shape to them, and ive noticed a good amount of size added to em over the passed 2 months or so.

    ANNNND tmrw is my last day of the log. and ill be running the rest of my 8 caps tmrw. ill dose it 2 in am, 4 pre w/o, and 2 in pm. im basically going to do a upper body workout, but im just going to be looking for the pump. probably about 4 or 5 sets of 12 for each body part, with only about 45 seconds rest in between each set. then ill take some pics for the final review. and as for the final review, im probably going to take next week off, but take a couple days for my evaluations. minus deadlift. ill keep my deadlift numbers from this week (355 x 1), and ill take a day to do squats. pushups will be done tmrw.

    sad to see this log ending. maybe i could get another bottle to wipe away my tears? hint hint haha. all i know is when i get some extra cash, probably during the holidays, im gonna pick up a couple bottles of this. id really like to use it during a recomp, and coupled with hyperdrol or maybe something like rpm.

    Nice review and nice progress, man. You definitely look leaner, and it looks like you've got more development in your chest, when I compare the before and after photos.

    Note to consumers: MassFX does not make your chest less hairy.

    i dont know if your trying to tell people that so they dont think it causes hair loss, but i loled at that.

    no hair loss btw. no shedding, nothing. if anything, my beard grew back kinda fast when i trimmed it up.
