Here is of a pic of me on the pitch to give you an idea of my stature and body type.
Here is a pic of after todays workout (I will have my fiance's camera after this which is much nicer than my blackberry)
I am 6'0"
Honestly for a sport like Rugby, I don't know if I would want to be much leaner than what you are at now. Fat provides some good protection when your hit. I am interested to see what your training is like, I don't know to many Rugby players in my area so I have no clue what you do off the field......Other than drink of course !
Muscle Pharm Rep
Yes, we do a lot of that (drink). I cut back significantly in the offseason however. I will post my full work out tonight after I get home from practice. I wouldn't mind being a little bit leaner because most of the "flab" is unhealthy fat from eating really poorly and drinking a ton of Guinness.
Who you play this weekend Irish? I'm at SJU
We are playing Lincoln Park from Chicago at our field in Eagan. A ton of our team is from SJU. Good luck and smash some people.
Training schedule for first 4 weeks
Holy Volume Training Batman!
That is a lot of work for one session, how long are you usually in the gym for?
Muscle Pharm Rep
Actually I messed that up. I gotta fix all that **** and repost it.
EDIT: The new training schedule has been posted after it has been fixed...ha ha
yeah a lot more reasonable. I am not sure what happened to the cells when I transfered what I had written into word to excel. Anyway, thats it and the actually running part of the Rugby training may be less when I first start because I have shin splints so bad right now that its hard to walk after running a lot.
Big game tomorrow and then big party, So I may not post anything new until Sunday when I get my real before pictures put up.
How'd it go? We won our match pretty easily, hopefully the Banshees faired equally as well. Social obviously ensued and ****showness commenced. Hooray.
We lost in a very tough game, but we won the B side game and I got binned on a bull**** call of high tackle so it wasnt anything cool to get binned for, but I scored a try too. We went to a German bar for the last night of Oktoberfest and got ridiculous. So I am moving a little slow today.
In other news my supps should be here either tomorrow or Tuesday and I will have Before pictures posted tonight.
DAY 1 (Monday, October 13th 2008)
I got all of my food into me, but my energy level was really low. I have been fighting off a head cold for the last three or four days and the stress at work is really starting to piss me off.
My workout was tough. I had to force myself through all of the sets and my lifts were really pretty light. I am assuming assault will really pick that up and help me.
We will see how tonights lift goes, my supps should be at my apt when I get home tonight.
So I got my Assault and Bulletproof in the mail today and to my suprise they included a copy of Status Magazine and a Calander filled with hot chicks.
Thank you Muscle Pharm for that and I love your ads in the mag.
So I had my first round with assault and it was awesome.
The taste is phenomenal.
The tingly feeling you get about 5 minutes into is awesome also.
The focus, endurance, aggression, and the all around 'good' feeling lasted my entire hour workout and it just now starting to fade 2 hours after I took it.
I did start to feel uneasy and jumpy for about 10 minutes about 45 minutes into my workout, but after the next set I leveled out again.
The pump was awesome. My arms were so pumped up that seeing them only drove me to work harder. I can see how it would be easy to over work yourself on this if you dont have a plan.
All and all I am impressed with my first encounter with Assault.
I can see how if I hadn't eaten an hour before taking it that it could cause some nausea, but when comparing it to NO-Xplode its night and day. This doesn't even come close to the stomach/gastric rollercoaster that I got with NO-Xplode nor did I feel bloated and pukey. I didn't violently crash out and get exausted either, it was a very gradual decent down to not wanting to do laps around my apartment complex.
This is the only other NO product I have taken besides NO-Xplode, so I have limited experience outside of that. So I will compare it to that a lot.
On a side note. I am excited to see how the bulletproof.
My eating was a little off today because I woke up late for work, but I made up for it throughout the day.
I am at 205.6 lbs.
My recommendation with the Bullet Proof is to take it about 20 minutes before bed on an empty stomach with about 4-5 ounces of cool water. For me it seems that when I lessen the amount of water I use a bit it hits me much quicker.
Thanks Again for logging this, we will definitely keep that in mind when doing sponsored logs in the future.

Sounds great man. I am working on my rugby guys and some of my friends interested in bodybuilding to check Muscle Pharm out and everything.
So the bulletproof was pretty awesome. It doesn't taste as good as the assault, but its still not terrible.
I am going to have to take my assault earlier too because I had some issues falling asleep until about 12:30am and I had to get up at 7am and I am sure its because I took my Assault at 7:15pm.
The Bulletproof helped get very restful sleep, I didnt toss and turn at all and I felt really good when I woke up this morning, a little groggy right away, but after a shower I was wide awake and ready to go. I didn't read pmiller's advice until after I had already taken it with 12oz of water. So tonight I will take it with 5oz and see how that works. I will also be taking my Assault at 6pm and going straight to the gym from work.
Tonight is Legs and Abs
im in...out of curiosity what position do you play sir?
Another great pump tonight. I took my Assault an hour earlier and got to the gym an hour earlier too.
We will see how the bulletproof kicks in tonight. I am going to take it in about 2 hours.
hows the rugby going for you? i played inside and outside centre for rugby, but much preferred rugby league..
im going to stack anabolic halo and NaNo vapor together soon, im not sure what to expect but im only new to suppliments so im wanting to try things myself now, im using NO Xplode at the moment with a mate and he has been experiencing stomach achs, really making him feel crook and draining the energy out of him.
Tell him to take less. If he is taking 2 scoops go down to a scoop or a scoop and a half. Its really dose sensative for some people. You have to eat at an hour and a half before you take it anything more or less will give you the ****s and bloating, thats the way it was for me anyway. Tell him to pick up some Muscle Pharm Assault it tastes better and doesnt give me stomach cramps and diarrhea. The pump is way better too.
Rugby went well. We are in the offseason now so I am bulking. We start winter training in January.
Sorry about the lack of updates for the last week or so, but work has been killing me. I have been working out dilligently and I have noticed some gains in my max weight and definately in vascularity especially in my shoulders. I am going to be switching to a power lifting type program after next week to really focus on some real strength and power gains. I am going to be trying out for a select side team this spring that plays in national competitions and has the ability to get me on the nation team maybe some day. So its time to take these next 5 months and get myself geared up and in the best shape possible.

noooooooo! ive done the stack and there is MUCH better out there
I'm curious about these new MP products.
Well after I raped the **** out of my back last Wednesday I am getting back into the gym after a 4 day rest. According to the Chiro said I popped a rib out of place. All I know is that I couldnt breathe real well.
Other than that brief injury issue, everything has been going well.
Sorry for the long delay with everything its been crazy at work and everything.
Its been a little over a month since I started and I have seen some pretty good muscle gains. Strength gains and the pump have been awesome. Here are some pics.
Oh and my weight is still at 207
Nice Job man, keep it up.
Muscle Pharm Rep
nice very interested in these products cash flow prevents an order at the moment
Yeah, I understand and the cash flow thing, but by far Assault is one of the best NO supplements I have taken. Not only for the great pump I get, but also because it doesnt have any gastro side effects that came along with N.O. Xplode.
