    MillenniumSportTechnologies Ragnarok unsponsored log


    Heres a little fun fact Ragnarok comes from old norse , which is now Sweden, Norway, which means the end of the world...its referring to the end of the world, kind of like Armageddon.

    I dont know how to copy the pictures up , maybe a MST rep can come in and help me make it look better. for now heres the writeup

    http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p...gnarok_700.jpg

    Alright I'm using this for energy coming into my competition. I'm four weeks out. This is a detailed log of the four weeks coming into the competition. This log is a heap of information in it , esp for the last four weeks.

    This is a basic blueprint, some days will be higher or lower.Diet 300 protein, 100-150 carbs,100 fat. and I do a lower carb refeed day every week.

    Training: DC maintenance training (its not Dc per say, I got this idea from Dante so I just call it Dc maintenance and its rest pausing.) Six days per week.
    day 1. Biceps, forearms, cardio
    day 2. Quads, abs, cardio
    day 3. Shoulder's , triceps,cardio
    day 4. hamstrings, calves, cardio
    day 5. back width, back thickness, traps, cardio
    day 6. chest, cardio

    Ive been taking only one scivation cap before workout. I call them workouts because I'm not really training.Taking it easy because of my arm.

    Took The Crushing punch Ragnarok today in about 20 oz of cold water.mmmm it was good! I don't understand how something could taste this good without any carbs.

    *Thoughts on the effects of Ragnarok:::during workout I had good energy and I still have a lot of energy. I took some taurine afterward s to try and calm myself down and will take l-theanine in a second. might have to take in gaba. I don't take stims much and like I said I haven't felt this much artificial energy in a long time, which will be fine .
    these last four weeks for cardio after training. i could do cardio now, I wont though. glad to know enhanced energy. Ragnarok does its job no doubt about it.

    I have not done any of these exercises Im trying in eight months because of an injured elbow.

    Today was Shoulders and triceps

    High Incline bench press 25(on each side) 12-8-7 (27)(arm clicking on warmup...I changed form put elbow brace on and it wasn't bad.
    window maker ..side lateral machine 80lbs- 20 x's

    Decline close-grip bench 45 and 5=10-8-6(24)
    scott triceps windowmaker 80 lbs- 20 x's (clicking it arm and feel something movement in arm)

    cardio on bike 38 mins treadmill 8 minutes.

    Water intake 1.25-1.5 gallons of water

    Protein 275
    carb 125(that's counting carbs in the cottege cheese and small stuff, I may lower carbs because of this, before cottage cheese it was 110)
    fat 100

    and I have energy left from the Ragnarok so I may just lower carbs more provided that I have the energy and not dizzy .

    Pictures four weeks out.

    usually i fall asleep . I had to dose taurine, l-theanine and gaba to get me to sleep. I'm not used to the extra energy. I took it upon awaking today and about to workout. just ate my first meal. another thing to note usually i stay in bed and a different feeling. I woke up immediately today. Stims do that to you.

    Okay today no weight training 30 minutes outside cardio , sunny walked around the local college we both went to,my brother and I. (he's 25, got his masters and getting his phd/doctor, very proud of him) Gym was closed for new years.

    Protein 250
    carbs 115(cottege cheese makes them higher, which is best taking before bed for the slower absorption)
    fat 110

    today got in over a gallon of water. 1.25 at the most which is good since I got in 250 Protein. got about the same ratio of protein per lb of body weight to water, which is a brilliant formula to go by measure protein and water. I hope Im teaching everyone something they can take and apply in this log!

    Today took Ragnarok upon awaking. shower then fist meal. kind of lethargic feeling. I'm thinking the VS or r-ala. any reps know why I got lethargic afterward today after taking it. weird feeling.

    Today: backwidth, backthickness, traps, cardio

    Close grip pulldowns100 lbs-15-12-10(37)
    windowmaker top halfway reps 100-20x's
    Deadlifts over/over 225- 10x's, 275-5 x;s Ill always do over/over from now on. not bad for not doing them in five-six months.
    Hack shrugs 3 plates-12x's 3 plates and 25- 8
    30 minutes bike cardio heartrate 115-130.
    than did some cleaning for grandmother -more cardio

    thoughts on Ragnarok : I felt strange this mornign . will monitor this. as far as energy it did its job. I did my cardio and cleaned afterward.

    Protein 265
    carbs 170(yes including the cottege cheese carbs)
    fats 100
    water around the same ratio of protein.1.25 gallons

    since it was deads and cleaning day I allowed myself extra carbs.

    man did them carbs come in handy...

    maybe a rep knowws its not really important ..just from a science perspective.today dosed Ragnorak after meal. which it says to dose before Ill play with it and I find after to be working better. even though it takes sense to dose before with the r- ala, vandyl sulfate, glycerol , wouldn't this be best before a meal? due to increased uptake of nutrients. I know I used to dose ala and vs before meals.. or does it really matter. maybe a rep can comment

    anyways took a dose and got the energy kick(I had nice energy today)

    did chest today
    chest machine 45 and 25 on each side 10-5-8
    incline smith on about 25-30 degrees windowmaker(its on dantes videos on youtube) 45- 20 x's
    push presses 60 lbs- 20 x's

    cardio 45 minutes
    10 minutes stationary bike 110-125
    35 minutes heart-rate-120-148 more on the higher side.
    than about a 5-10 minutes log in the park

    also practiced my posing routine for 22 minutes. (I know its not required for this online competition, I'm treating it like a live competition)

    protein 260
    carbs 110
    fat 105
    water 1.50 gallons gallon and a half.

    lots of veggies(cabbage and salad Im eating at least a half to a whole head of cabbage per day with the protein and fat meals fulfilling my stomach, cabbage goes down easy, in addition its great for you i3c)

    Took Ragnarok first thing after meal one. Its does what it says. The taste is refreshing on this low carb diet. everyone keeps raving about other flavors and says they don't like crushing punch. its good to me.

    hit the gym..biceps
    suprine curls 20 lbs-11-9-7(27)
    pinwheel curls 20 lbs- 20 x's
    standing hammer preacher windowmaker(exercise I got from Dante) 12 lbs- 20 x's
    cardio 45 minutes
    stationary bike ..15 minutes hearrate 100-120 more like 115 most of the time idk
    treadmill 30 minutes heartrate 130-140

    posed for fifteen minutes
    tanned for five minutes

    protein 275
    carbs 110- but I put bbq sauce on chicken before I cooked it and didnt count them so who knows. i feel energized and feel like I could do more cardio.
    fat 110
    water 1.5 gallons

    The cardio may increase or the calories decrease. Time to push my body farther. cardio was easy so it may increase.

    alright Im going to sleep early today due to work.

    Ragnarok..one scoop after first meal..thoughts good energy. i just got tired fast today.

    strength has dropped on legs since last time. however I think strength will improve the whole time on upper body due to Im training it again. and hopefully strength will improve on lower body, no big deal if it doesn't though legs are 29 inches and touch and calves close to 17 or 17.

    alright here goes...I felt so low carb keto today doing shopping in wal-mart. anyways

    front squats (widegrip) 45- 9 x's, 45 and 25- 2 x's, 45 and 10-5 x's
    windowmaker leg press wide grip/low..2 plates(per side) 20 x's
    abs

    cardio
    bike 10 minutres heart rate 100-120
    incline treadmill 35 minutes..heart rate was135-150 when I do the treadmill dc calves bending over heart rate goes up significantly(5-10) then just regular

    Protein 315
    carbs 150
    fat 95
    water dont know...I think it was a little under.

    Last night I took in cottage cheese and peanut butter before bed and just them carbs seemed to keep me awake. I might be wrong. I might be right.

    Protein 280
    carbs 80
    fats 70
    water gallon and a half maybe over (15 grams of l-glutamine before bed) than got up during the middle up night at got in another shake and 10 more grams of l-glut)

    I might just go ahead and do this for the remainder of the prep. I know its surely not optimal as far as building muscle, with the super cardio,(190 beats per minute for 10-15 minutes gasping for breathe and my willingness to increase time). since I have more fat than I'd like at this point,I have to hit it harder than if I were already ready or close to it,otherwise,I could just cruise into the competition, that's not the case though. I'm gaining muscle esp on upper body from not training it for eight months.

    I have a question. I'm not taking in anything after weight-training. i wait in till after cardio to take in post. Ive never ever done this in all my years of lifting (close to seven). I dont think it'll hurt much for a couple of weeks because I was taking in a shake and a piece of fruit post weight training and it doing cardio immediately after and it seemed to make cardio harder due to stomach digestion this stuff.

    I like to do it all in one session because gym is far away and takes a good amount of gas and I have my energy in for the day to do it.

    My answer is its fine as long as it's like this for a couple weeks, I mean Ive been doing this for years and the situation won't always be like this next time pre-contest.

    If I like your answer better than mine I'll use it.

    You Q&A has confused me, however I would suggest some BCAA or EAA mix during the weights & cardio to minimize catabolism, with some extra leucine.

    I'd say take in as much protein post wo as you can, if it means only drinking half I'd do that. Depending on how long your cardio is, you might be losing hard earned muscle.

    alright today took Ragnarok upon awaking.(also does extra tyrosine for added energy)

    Thoughts: Energy is great. As well as the taste. it taste very sugary like a whole bag of sugar was poured in there. It says zero carbs. Ctdeuce are you sure it has zero carbs like it says? if so what makes it so tasty like sugar almost, real sweet tasting?

    Calves
    Hack squat calves(Dc pre-contest style) 45 +5 =12
    Db between shoes 45- 15 x's

    Lying leg curl(nautilus prone curl or something like that) 90 lbs=11-6-5 (21)
    abductor machine 80 lbs- 22x's

    cardio
    treadmill first 25 minutes 135-140 heartrate
    next 15 minutes 155-190
    last 10 minutes 150

    Protein 265
    carbs 80
    fat 90
    water Think I got in a gallon and a half (10 gram L-glutamine and protein shake before bed)

    For some reason I feel more energetic even though doing less carbs and high intensity cardio. My guess is less fat=easier to move around and all that blood flow going on from the cardio. When asleep I sleep deep! i don't even feel like I need a refeed day for a while, even though I'll probably do a smaller one in the day couple days since its been eight days since my last.

    It seems the more fatter I was, I got more sluggish and the less fat, I'm energized. I'm thinking this is temporary because if you do this kind of diet and cardio for too long, you can become burnt out. In addition I don't think its good for the body to put it though extreme dieting for to long.

    you could be in ketosis. many report feeling very energetic once your body switches to using fat as a primary fuel source.
    makes sense when you consider the fact that fat contains more than double the energy of either carbohydrate or protein.
    and a state of ketosis can be reached even without low carb. just low calorie will force your body to resort to burning fat for energy.
    good log smeton. good luck in your final weeks of prep!

    I'm in ketosis. I weighed 228 today and haven't had a carb up or re feed day in nine days and counting. (I ve also gained a little bit of muscle from doing exercises I haven't done in eight months this month) I'm prolonging the carb-up or refeed day by listening to my body and common sense of the more body fat you have , you can spread out refeed days longer.

    Took Ragnarok this morning and tyrosine...gave me the energy to get though a long back and trap workout and cardio.

    Back width, thickness, and traps

    Reverse-grip close grip pulldowns 110-10 , 110-8, 110-8
    windowmaker close grip pulldown 110lbs- 20 x's

    Nautilus pullover machine (did a technique I got recently, its a 10-12 hold at the top of every rep) 110-10, 110-10
    windowmaker 80 lbs- 40x's

    Hack squat Shrugs
    3 plates and 10(each side)=13
    3p +35=15

    cardio 45 minutes. different treadmill. I did the same intensity as last time. It's getting easier and I can push longer.

    protein 245
    carbs 80
    fat 65
    water 1-1 .5 -2 gallons(lost count)

    Today took off: had a business meeting in another city and forgot my protein powder in a ziplock baggie and almonds so missed some ; however the people were nice enough to let me use some of their protein so i got in about 20 grams protein, 10 carbs and 5 fat to hold me intill my next meal, intill i got home.

    Did take Ragnarok today because no training.

    Protein 130
    carbs 10
    fat 50
    water one gallon(this was in three meal including the small carry over meaL the couple Tom and Mary helped me with.)

    than I did my refeed

    Olean Ruffles fat free cheddar and sour creme chips...96 Carbs, 18 protein , 0 fat (they are good!)

    Lean cuisine traditional deluxe pizza 50 carbs 19 protein , 8 fat

    weighty watchers smart-one's brownie A la mode 72 crbs, 10 protein,8 fat

    4. Reeses Puff's (cereal) 30 carbs,3 protein, 5 fat

    that comes to 198 carbs 50 protein and 21 fat and 2,430 soduim


    waited 3 hours...

    ean cuisine garlic pizza 20 protein 50 carb 7 fat 670 sodium

    weight watchers turtle sunday 8 protein, 68 carb, 10 fat
    210 sodium

    peice of white bread with honey and peice of white bread with low fat cream cheese 5 protein, 30 carbs 7 fat

    pomegrate juice 30 carbs(soothes my stomach a bit)

    couple sips of IBC root beer poured rest down drain stomach doesnt feel like and and I think i got plenty in.

    protein 30-32
    carbs 180-200
    fat 27
    sodium 900

    fat was on the high side. I know next time to watch fat a bit closer.

    water intake on refeeds is lower than back to baseline when diet goes back to "normal".(this apply s to ****loading as well.

    Your about to see even more changes this week.
