    SilentBob's Cordygen5 and Cre-02 log (sponsored)


    SilentBob is back for another fun filled log. This one is with the company that was the cause of my VERY FIRST purchase on Nutraplanet. The company was Millennium Sports Technologies and the product was Ragnarok. Needless to say, I haven't been the same since. I am a big fan of MST and was thrilled that there was a logging opportunity for some of their products.



    CTDeuce and MST selected me to run 2 bottles of Cordygen5 and CRE-02. Thank you, I will do my best to ensure your products do their best. As with any Bob Logs I give you my training, diet (unless y'all get tired of seeing the same foods everyday,) supps I'm taking, and thoughts for each day. I also have an affinity for music and beautiful women.

    Endo for life!

    Training

    My current training program is a Sheiko powerlifting routine. This program is lifting only 3 days a week and the purpose is to increase an individuals Bench, Deadlift, and Squat numbers. I think it's safe to say that my Deadlift is the only one that isn't really benefiting from this program, but my Bench has shot up through the roof. There are only 2 more weeks of this program before I change it up to a 4 day split with cardio.

    Diet

    I am currently eating at or just above maintenance for the sake of this type of training. It kicks your ass and asks for seconds. When I switch to my 4 day split I will be eating at and below maintenance with recomp as my goal.

    Supps

    Cordygen5
    Cre-02
    MVP365
    ZMK
    Somnidren GH

    Fish Oil
    Ultra-40
    Gut Health
    Xtend
    WMS
    Jacked (almost empty)
    IntraAid (almost empty)

    So yeah, I've got a bit of an MST thing going on. I'm saving the Somnidren for the start of the new routine. Everything else is locked and loaded. I do about 10g of fish oil at night about an hour before I go to bed. I pop Ultra-40s throughout the day. Some of my meals are in the mid 20s when it comes to protein so 4 of those suckers help to bring it closer to 30g/meal. Gut Health, another product I take before bed. Xtend is immediately post workout and once IntraAid is gone, it will be intra-workout once again + WMS. Jacked is USPLabs' new preworkout. It gets me going in the morning. IntraAid is the new product from Universal, I mix it with about 60g of WMS to help power me through these 2 hour workouts that Sheiko demands.

    SilentBob

    I've been bulking for a few months with no cardio so I don't want to hear it.





    What do I expect to get out of Cre-02 and Cordygen5?

    Increased endurance, which will play a major role when I move back to sets of 8 and 10 instead of 3.

    Increased Oxygen utilization, this will help me power through my 30 minute interval cardio sessions which are starting in 2 weeks.

    Maintain Strength, it'll be difficult to gauge since I will be lowering the weight and increasing the reps. But we'll see what happens. I'll find some way to monitor this.

    Anything else?

    Final Review


    Final Review

    I'd like to thank Chuck and Matt and the whole crew at MST for giving me the chance to try out their products. In two months time I've moved from a power lifing style and a bulking diet to more of a recomp workout with a caloric intake right around my maintenance level. I've dropped about 10 pounds since the beginning of this log. 204lb to 194lb. I would like to think that with a high protein diet (~200g/day,) and lifting every other day for about an hour, I've been able to retain most of my muscle mass. Now on to the finer points of this review:

    What do I expect to get out of Cre-02 and Cordygen5?

    Increased endurance, which will play a major role when I move back to sets of 8 and 10 instead of 3.
    Endurance is great on Cordygen5. I transitioned from Sheiko to a 4x5 to a 4x8 routine with ease. There were ups and downs in this log but all of the downs were due to my uncanny ability to find new ways to destroy my recovery. From my attempt at CopyCat's 100 pullups contest, a bad day with the wheel of death, and most recently high rep calf raises; anything that has affected my lifting was not due to a lack of gas in the tank, or endurance.

    Increased Oxygen utilization, this will help me power through my 30 minute interval cardio sessions which are starting in 2 weeks.
    This is one of the greatest benefits of Cordygen5 and Cre-02. I never felt like I was out of breath. When running, I felt like I could go on forever, even after not running for 9 weeks. The only problem I had with running was lactic acid. Even with the Rhodiola in Cre-02, I think I would have benefited from more consistent BCAA and Beta-Alanine supplementation

    Maintain Strength, it'll be difficult to gauge since I will be lowering the weight and increasing the reps. But we'll see what happens. I'll find some way to monitor this.
    A good way to measure strength is using a total body workout, like squats. My most recent squat outting was 225x4x8. I would say that being able to complete 4 sets of 8 full, clean reps at 225 says to me that my strength is still high. It's no doubt gone down a little due to the shift in lifting styles, but it's by no means a substantial drop. I'd like to think that Cre-02 has played a significant role in me maintaining my strength.

    Summation of Cordygen5:

    Bottom line, if you're looking to run further, decrease time between sets, and don't want to feel like you're gasping for air after a tough set, Cordygen5 is a good choice for you.

    Summation of Cre-02:

    With all the different types of creatine available, it's sometimes difficult to know which one is right for you. Cre-02 is not only a creatine supplement, it also contains cultured Cordyceps Sinensis Hybrid strain which "allows for rapid aerobic, anaerobic and ATP recovery." It also contains Rhodiola and other adaptogens for additional endurance support.

    Day 1

    Training:
    Sheiko Week 7, Day 3
    Highlights:
    Bench: 2x3x250
    Squat: 2x3x255

    Diet:
    3359 calories
    221g protein
    306g carbs (46g fiber, 71g sugar)
    139g fat (47g poly, 43g mono, 34g sat)

    Narrative:
    Today was the first day of Cordygen5 and Cre-02. I had a decent lift considering how exhausting deads were on Wednesday, but nothing to really write home about. I'm tired, I'm hoping for 10 hours of sleep tonight. Wish me luck.

    No song for today, Tobias is still rocking hard from the first post.

    Well jumping in to 30 minutes of interval cardio after almost 3 months of no cardio would certainly be a test.

    But to answer your question it will probably be more of a series of evaluations.

    Day 4

    Training:
    Sheiko Week 8, Day 1
    Highlights
    Squats: 2x2x265
    Bench: 4x3x250

    Diet:
    2968 calories
    250g protein
    294g carbs (41g fiber, 49g sugar)
    88g fat (28g poly, 16g mono, 18g sat)

    Narrative:
    Well, nothing much to report. I've been dosing Cre-02 a 3 a day 2 hours before my workouts and 1, 3x a day on non-workout days. Cordygen5 I've been dosing either 2 hours before my workout or first thing in the morning. If there is a better dosing schedule for my off days I'd definately like to hear it.

    Sheiko is winding down and I can't wait. I've gained a little tub which is apparent in those pictures, but this was a bulk and a powerlifting routine. It kinda comes with the territory. Two weeks and I'll be recomping like a mofugger. I'm not saying I'm looking forward to cardio, but it will be a great way to put these two products to the test.

    Diet could have been better today. I usually eat every three hours but stretched one to 4 hours so I wouldn't piss off the folk at work by eating all the damn time (which I am liable to do.) I figured that 2nd breakfast and my Pre-workout meal were a little more important than throwing in a snack 2 hours inbetween.

    I know it's not part of my 'log' per say, but I have to share my love for ZMK. I have the most vivid, memorable, and lengthy dreams while on this products. I'm not one to 'jump out of bed,' in the mornings but I can honestly say that I wake up refreshed when I take ZMK, regardless if I've had 5 hours of sleep or a full 8 hours.

    I had a bit of a runny nose all weekend, and it was raining, so I spent most of the weekend in bed reading.

    Thanks JP. After a day or two of entering custom foods on the AM diet tracker I can plug in an entire day in about 5 minutes. I eat mostly the same thing everyday so after a little work it's very simple.

    So thats how you do it? I've been wanting to ask you how you track it.... you use only AM diet tracker?

    btw, great job on your log!

    Yessir, just spend a few minutes adding a custom food or two whenever I eat something that's not on the list, or something that's already prepared (oats, bars, protein powders, frozen fish, etc.) and next thing you know you have a big list of foods where you can add up your day in just a few clicks.

    I've used fitday.com and sometimes I use nutritiondata.com for foods that I'm curious about and don't have in front of me, but for sheer convience I stick to AMs tracker. It already has a bunch of foods in it's database and once you get used to it, it's very simple to use.

    Day 6

    Training:
    Sheiko Week 8, Day 2
    Highlights:
    Bench: 2x2x250
    Deadlift: 2x2x275

    Diet:
    3456 calories
    243g protein
    333g carbs (76g fiber, 64g sugar)
    128g fat (46g poly, 31g mono, 25g sat)

    Narrative:
    This is the first time in awhile where I can say I had a good DL day. Most of my DLs lately have been discouraging. But the total reps for today were lower and not as taxing as normal which leads me to believe that when I go for my 1 RM next week I'll be able to achieve something higher than my initial 1 RM when I started this rodeo. The only supplemental difference has been the addition of Cordygen5 and CRE-02. Everything else has been the same for 2+ weeks.

    Sham-WOW!

    Training:
    Off

    Diet:
    2545 calories
    240g protein
    169g carbs (29g fiber, 36g sugar)

    Narrative:
    I noticed a bit of an increase in vascularity today, which is saying something since it was an off day. Had a big ole T-bone for dinner. It was awesome.
