    New Member, First Log! Stoked/Activate


    Hi everyone. I'm a new member. I've been reading articles on this and other forums for a while and I want to try keeping a log to see my progress and get some pointers

    I will be logging Activate Xtreme at 6 pills per day and STOKED at 4 pills per day.

    Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 225
    Goal: Cut to 11%> body fat
    Workout Split:
    Monday - Back
    Tuesday - Chest
    Wednesday - Shoulders
    Thursday - Legs
    Friday - Arms
    Saturday/Sunday - nothing usually

    As for cardio, I wrestle and play basketball sometimes.

    I'm about to go do my shoulder workout. If anyone has any tips or if anyone wants to know more information, just let me know!

    Wish me luck

    Thank you very much! I'm not sure. I may be able to get some pictures up soon. I'm probably between 17-20%. I want to cut to under 11% btw

    Here is my shoulder/trap workout for today:

    Seated barbell shoulder press:

    Warm Up
    140 X 8
    140 X 8
    140 X 10
    140 X 8

    Lateral Raises:

    20's X 12
    25's X 10
    30's X 6

    Smith Machine Shrugs:

    140 X 20
    230 X 20
    230 X 20
    320 X 8
    Drop Set
    230 X 20
    140 X 20

    Reverse Pec Dec:

    70 X 15
    85 X 12

    Cable Pronation alternating with Supanation:

    36 X 10
    24 X 10
    36 X 10

    I had 2 bananas and a protein shake. Then 45 minutes later I had a 90 minute wrestling practice. I'm pretty beat. I'm going to have some meat and beans before bed with my last STOKED and 2 Activate Xtreme.

    Anyone have anything interesting to talk about?

    Gotta love the leg days fellas. I can't wait to do squats again! I remember when I first started doing squats and how much I hated them, but now they are my favorite. Anyone else have leg day today!?!?!

    Things to talk about... welll... I am Canadian so I'm required to bring up hockey Got a favourite sport, wrestling perhaps? MMA Fan, we're home to GSP and we're proud of the guy; not quite sure what the deal with the vaseline was.

    Leg day was yesterday for me; I broke my R finger 6 weeks ago so I haven't been doing stiff-leg deads but those are my fav. for hams. I was just watching videos on Hack Squats today; Irish Cannon's log has a few good ones.

    Wrestling is my favorite sport, unless bodybuilding is a "sport."

    Regarding legs, I have always done dumbbell lunges for hamstrings. How do lunges compare with stiff-leg deads?

    Stiff leg deads are a whole new level. Nothing makes me nearly as sore as SLDL's.

    I see. So you stand on a box and hold a barbell? Keep your legs as straight as possible while bending down, and keeping your head up like a normal dead lift?

    Thank you! I appreciate it. Do you mind if we discussed STOKED in the log? Then others could chime in and we could get a big discussion going...

    My day was great, as for your PR, makes me even happier; good for you bro. Personally I prefer to dose Stoked on an empty stomach, 15 minutes before breakfast, and 15 minutes before my workout on an empty stomach.

    What is the chemical advantage for taking STOKED with meals or on an empty stomach?

    Well besides trans-reservatrol and icarrin being testboosters/antiestorgenic, they also produce and allow for nitric oxide production; which in turn will give you more strength and pumps in the gym.

    And those effects are more effective if I take them on an empty stomach? If so, I will start doing that from now on.

    When one eats they diminish the effects of a nitric oxide booster suppplement because all the blood flow of the body has to go towards the stomach and not to the muscles.

    It seems like the 15 minute wait would be little to no help.

    And as far as testosterone boosting effects, does it matter if it's with food or without?

    eah, 30 is more probable, I just say 15 as a minumum, as far test boosting properties go, yes food will only allow for faster trasnportation of the the compounds. We add piperine and quercetin to add bioavailability to compound so one does not have to take it with soluable fats and food.

    Sorry for the lateish update. Had my arm workout this morning at about 11:00 A.M.

    Barbell Curls:

    45 X 8
    85 X 8
    90 X 8
    95 X 8

    Lying Skull Crushers:

    50 X 8
    110 X 10
    110 X 10
    70 X 25

    I'm not sure what this next bicep exercise is called. I stand between two cables and pull them towards my head like I'm flexing. Anyways...

    36 X 8
    48 X 8
    60 X 8
    72 X 8 <-- Personal Record!

    V-Bar Tricep Pressdown: This exercise was terrible because the skull crushers took it out of me

    84 X 8
    84 X 8

    Running the Rack Hammer Curls: Hammer Curls with Dumbbells Continuous

    5 X 6
    7.5 X 6
    10 X 6
    12.5 X 6
    15 X 6
    20 X 6
    25 X 6
    30 X 6
    35 X 6
    40 X 6
    45 X 6
    40 X 6
    35 X 6
    30 X 6
    25 X 6
    20 X 6
    15 X 6
    12.5 X 6
    10 X 6
    7.5 X 6
    5 X 6

    What a killer pump after that

    Tricep Kickbacks:

    20 X 8
    20 X 8
    25 X 8

    All in all, I was really pleased. My biceps and triceps are FINALLY getting bigger and stronger. For the longest time I had troubles growing them.

    A few notes on my stack so far. I'm not sure if it's just me or what, but recovery is off the hook. After that killer leg workout yesterday, I am not sore today. I'll probably be a little sore tomorrow, but this is amazing so far. I can add more sets or more exercises next week since I am recovering so well Also, I've been more than average horny today. Not sure if it's from the supps, or if it's just me.

    Hope everyone had a good workout today. I'll personally be taking the weeked off, besides for some basketball on Sunday nigt.

    I have been reading around the forum more and have seen posts on doing a year round recomp as opposed to a cut/bulk cycle? Could anyone tell me or direct me towards a article explaining how to go about doing a year round recomp? Thanks!

    How's everyone's weekend?!

    Alright, so I figured that if I am going to be serious about cutting that I should be counting macros and calories. Based on my own knowledge, the internet, etc, I will be trying a 2600 calorie diet at first.

    2600 calories...now the question is how much of the other macros. To cut I know it's better to lessen carbs and keep intakes of protein and healthy fats up. I am 225 pounds, so how much protein? 300g? 250? What about fat? 100g? 80g? I will then have the rest come from complex carbs. I am also going to not eat carbs after 5 or so.

    Anyone please help me with my macros?

    Alright, so I figured that if I am going to be serious about cutting that I should be counting macros and calories. Based on my own knowledge, the internet, etc, I will be trying a 2600 calorie diet at first.

    2600 calories...now the question is how much of the other macros. To cut I know it's better to lessen carbs and keep intakes of protein and healthy fats up. I am 225 pounds, so how much protein? 300g? 250? What about fat? 100g? 80g? I will then have the rest come from complex carbs. I am also going to not eat carbs after 5 or so.

    Anyone please help me with my macros?
    Based on your frame, your macro should like this, proteins 300g, fats 150, COMPLEX carbs 100.
    The best complex carbs are oatmeal, quinoa oats, sweet potatoe,yams, brown or black rice, beans, sprouted grain bread, quinoa pasta, whole grain pasta, oat germ, millets, lentils.
    doing my own thang!

    I know what good complex carbohydrates are, but thanks for helping me out anyhow

    I want to take most of the carbs in the morning, but I workout in the PM, around 430-5. I'm thinking 50-60g for breakfast, and then the other 50-40 PWO?
