Sponsored - OUFINNY is sawing logs and throwing weight around with Somnidren GH
Hi guys what's going on? Welcome to my first sponsored log courtesy of MST. This could not have come at a better time, just got back from a 2 week brutal work trip and only got in one workout and my diet went to crap. That being said, I am still catching up on sleep and ready to get back into the gym and back on track; this is where I hope the Somnidren will help because I have some long, tired days ahead getting caught up. Here is a breakdown of my workout split, current supps, and diet information.
M - Back/Bis
T - Cardio (steady state running)
W - Chest/Tris
Th - Cardio (steady state running)
F - Legs/Shoulders
Weekend - Typically off but may throw in some cardio even if it is just working outside in yard/on car.
MST Somindren GH - Dose per bottle pre-bed 5 on / 2 off
GNC Mega Men Multi - Dose per bottle in AM
NP Fish Oil - 11 pills a day, doses split
LG Science Anadraulic Pump - Pre-workout
Palo Alto ATP tabs - going to try these at some point during log when don't want any stims pwo
USP Labs Jack3d - Typical Friday pwo drink with AP.
True Protein - Personal blend that is 35/35/30 Whey Isolate/Egg whites/Miscellar Casein. Pretty good and keeps you full after, great at 25 grams a serving with no carbs and 1 gram of fat.
* Note that with PWO I don't always take these, especially when I run. Most days if I run I may take a scoop of Get Diesel Ether level one that I am trying to finish, or if I am tired maybe a scoop of Jack3d (works but tastes terrible and get hard as a rock in any humidity).
Most days less the weekend I am going to follow the diet laid out by USP Labs with the OEP inner circle release. I have been doing this off and on since December and it has kept the fat away and muscle loss to a minimum so I will keep running it. This is a targeted low carb diet and I tend to do a carb loading on Friday night - Sunday morning then back on it for the week. Any specifics like an average days breakdown I will let you know. I am not really counting calories, just know what works by the scale/mirror. Once I do a serious cut here after this log I will start being more diligent about that.
Weight - 203 (this morning)
Height - 6'
BF% - Unknown but most likely between 15-20%. I may be able to get this today when I go to my new gym, will update if I do.
If you want to know what weights I am pushing on some common exercises I can update but I am not a competitive lifter so I focus on form and quality reps of weight so keep that in mind. Also, I am currently dealing with a sore hip that may prevent me from squatting for a while until the problem is dealt with so that exercise may be AWOL from this log sadly. My first workout is tonight after work, will give an update later tonight with what exercises/sets I do. First dose of SomnidrenGH from the bottle was last night, loved it and needed the sleep I got considering I went 50+ hours and only had 9 hours of sleep that whole time with a ski trip in the middle. Will give a first weeks impression after 3-4 doses in a row.
Measurements - Will update once I get them either today or tomorrow

No pressure having Kleen here! Thanks for dropping by, will be giving it my all now that I am back home and have a new gym to workout at. Let's just hope this hip issue doesn't become a major issue and calms down in a day or two, didn't like what the mountains in CA did to it that is for sure!
Final Review - MST SomnidrenGH
So this ends my run of SomnidrenGH courtesy of MST. I have to say I really, really enjoyed this product and could not have ran it at a better time. So much stress going on and an average of at least 1 less hour of sleep a night made this a godsend the nights I was able to take it. Here are my thoughts on parameters I THINK you all are interested in:
Sleep quality - 8.5/10 Deep REM sleep came easily, dreams were CRAZY vivid on occasion though I enjoyed this, it is not common for me anymore.
Noticable GH effects - 8/10
Enhanced Recovery - 7/10
Morning bounceback - 8/10 This is how easily it is to get moving, etc... I could fall back asleep in a nano-second but once I was moving it was gone in 5 minutes.
Taste - 9/10
Overall Rating - 8.5/10
Ending weight - 196.5 (started a cut but I did notice that with diet I was leaning out before I began OEP/DCP/AP stack.)
Would I buy again - YES!
Other MST Supps - Lots of samples came to me with this, could not be happier with them. MST has a lot of promising products and I am really wondering if Athlytes or Cre02 would help my cardio being that I have Asthma... something to explore in the future. Ragnarok is awesome, would like to run that for about 60 days sometime and see what it can do for you. Both the caff/non-caff worked equally well for me though in the AM I would have liked more of a kick from it. This is good though because I think I could safely take this at 4:30 PM and get to sleep without issue.
A big thanks to MST for choosing me and I trust this log gives you an idea of the potential and benefits of SomnidrenGH. All I can tell you is this, you have to feel it to believe it; try it and you will know what I mean by that.

Whoops sorry to steal your place holder. I aways put it there before sending out invites. LOL I can't wait to see what you do here. What exactly is going on with the hip?
Live Hard, Laugh Hard, Love Hard and Heal Fast! - KLEEN
do it to it buddy....ready to rock
Workout today back/bis with Anadraulic Pump beforehand; hella bicep pump to the point that I had trouble showering after my workout. Here is the breakdown:
T-bar rows 4x10 reps
D grip seated rows 3x10 reps
Lat pull down 4x10
Barbell row (between legs with narrow grip handle) 3x10
At this point I was feeling a nice back pump and my energy was still strong...
Preacher barbell curls 3x10, 1x8 > 1x8> 1x8 drop set on last one, pump was retarded by this point.
Seated incline db curls 4x10
Narrow grip bicep pullups 2x6 - After the second set I was gassed, no sleep and poor diet caught up and I decided to call it, no need to push it on the first day back.
All in all a great first workout and being in a new gym it went pretty smoothly; a nice change not having to wait for equipment and the clientel was a MASSIVE improvement over my last one. Looking forward to some sleep tonight, now time to do laundry (shoot me now!).
Have always wondered about this product line, you hear good things...

So do you guys want me to get specific on diet/macros and add weights to my log? I need to get some pictures taken as well, hopefully tonight I can get some though I feel really flat after two weeks of bad diet and no training.
Yeah some people whos opinions I trust have said nothing but good things so far.
Live Hard, Laugh Hard, Love Hard and Heal Fast! - KLEEN
Tuesday workout: 25-30 minute run
1 PAL ATP Tab - Had energy to finish strong even though I felt like crap the WHOLE time.
3 MST Carnage - Beta in these hits hard and for a while, very different then any other BA product that I have taken. Would be curious how running a bottle would go...
All in all I am feeling pretty good but the DOMsicles are definitely here now. Tomorrow I will post some weights with my session, going to be chest/tris and should be fun since I have not been able to do this for about 3 weeks! More updates to come tomorrow and I will see about a few pics tonight.
glad to see you enjoyed the carnage buddy. its even better when you use 3 pre w/o and 3 post w/o.
Morning update for all of you: weight after morning pee 196.6!!!!!!!! I haven't been this low in a LONG time, apparently I had some glycogen stored up after that work trip and lost some weight due to poor diet and no working out. Also, my hip is feeling better even after my run last night, fingers crossed for Friday's leg workout.
Something that I am dealing with right now is a FREAKING CRAZY libido... I don't know if the break from GH supps but I am seriously having to use all my strength to stay out of trouble. This has been going strong since Sunday with no let up, and even though it is kind of annoying, the GF will be a fan when I see her Friday that is for sure. And along those lines, apparently I am heading to Mardi Gras in NOLA for 5 days starting this weekend so I will most likely miss my Monday-Tuesday workout and try to squeeze in one quick one on Wednesday night when I get back. Being that I am not taking on the weekend I should be good for my Monday dose again and will do what I can to add updates while I am gone. This was a last minute deal that the GF setup since it is her last year in NOLA and wants to do it right; can't say no!
Wednesday workout: Chest/Tris
LG Andaraulic Pump
Incline DB Bench 55x10, 70x10, 75x10, 75x9
PecDeck flys 80x10, 90x10, 100x10, 100x10
Decline BB Bench 155x10, 185x10, 185x8 (first time doing in ~3 months)
Cable chest press 10x10, 11x10,12x10>10x10>7x14 (these the numbers for weights, not sure what they equate to, last set was a double drop)
By this point my chest pump was flat our retarded, I looked like I gained 5 pounds in the chest alone, feeling SWOLE right then.
Dips all w/BW only 14, 14, 12, 10 (pump in chest was making this increasingly hard)
Skullcrushers 75x10, 75x10, 75x10, 75x10
Tricep push downs 4 sets
Tricep single arm pushdowns with rope 4 sets per arm
Spent after all of this but strength was consistent and endurance was much better than Monday. I like the Cre02, second time I took it and I think it would be a great standalone creatine to run some time.
Still sleeping well and dealing with the out of hand libido... not fun in my gym with a ton of hot young girls is all I have to say!
Great workout Bro! SO it sounds like the Somnidren also kicks up the LH increasing test. Would probably be really good with something like TestoPro too. Of course you may end up humping a weight hole or something. LOL
What gym is this with all the hotties? I know your in my area.
I am working out at Lifetime Fitness in Cinco Ranch (Katy) since it is very close to my work; costs an arm and a leg but I have friends that are members so we can all workout together. The biggest problem is when you are getting stared down by some HS 17-18 y/o girl that is stupid hot and have to walk away knowing that jail is not a fun way to spend your formative years, LOL! Besides that little challenge I face it is an awesome gym and even at 5:30 PM I can get on everything without any issues plus I can swim when I want, indoors no less.
Midday update: major DOMS today in the chest/tris from yesterday. Anytime I get a crazy pump from Anadraulic Pump this always seems to be the case but I know my chest is loving the workouts and it is showing so no biggie.
Cinco Ranch, no wonder there are a lot of hotties at your gym. Hey we still need to get together one day and hit up a Brazilian Buffet. Flip the serving marker to green and just keep bringing the meat portions please.
Speaking of, I am taking my wife to see Miss Saigon Saturday for our "Early Valentines". Too busy everywhere on Sunday so we are doing it Saturday so the resaurants won't be overly crowded. Can't really be romantic with a packed restaurant buzzing in the back ground.
Friday workout: Legs/Shoulders
Mixed it up today since I am heading to NOLA for Mardi Gras today and had to get one last workout in. First things first, hip issue is alive and well... try to do a machine squat, felt ok so I went to a standard back squat, not happening! Felt pain right as I went down and it got exponentially worse as I got half way there; scratch that one off the list until I see an orthopedic. Onto the workout.
Note - Workout was done fasted.
Ragnarok Ultra w/ caffeine - Liked it though I was hoping for more stim kick being the morning but I dealt with that.
LG Anadraulic Pump - 5 scoops baby! I was wired by this point, love me some geranium and its fast hitting badassness.
Reset AD - been taking for almost 3 weeks now, forgot to mention, LOVE this stuff! I am still flying right now and I finished at 7:30.
5 minute eliptical warmup
Failed squats (see above)
Leg Press - 10x3 plates, 10x4, 10x5, 10x5>10x4>10x3
I was awake after this bad boy and it did not bother my hip, great news. My focus was pretty shattered after failing at squats, a favorite exercise of mine, but I have to give it to the Ragnarok/AP, I was able to regain in about 30 seconds and it was go time.
Leg Curls - New machines to me, I will leave it at this: 4 sets of 10 reps. Weight was off since they don't have what I like but the new machine I used is great with isolating the hammies and taking any back out of it... I was pissed at first but they were smoked after so I might like it after I am more used to it.
Leg Extension: 10x145, 10x175, 10x175, 10x205>10x175>10x145
Walked away funny after this one, legs were shaking, NICE!
Calf work on leg press machine - 10x3 plates, 10x3, 10x3
Military Press - 10x40, 10x50, 10x50, 8x55
My shoulders are sore to the touch from chest on Wednesday hence the lighter weights, and I was feeling the fasted state about this point.
Side laterals SS w/ seated front laterals - 8x20>8x20, 3 sets total
After set 2 I was about to hurl, my rest periods were really short and the intensity plus stims had me on the edge. I am a sick SOB and liked it, so I hit set three just as hard but kept my water down and finished without incident.
Shrugs - 10x2 plates, 10x2, 10x2 plates +25, 10x2+25
Totally gassed after this one but happy I got through it after the initial disappointment on leg work. I have to say, if I was not taking any pwo I would have been pissed and probably had a terrible workout, the mind/muscle connection I had going was fierce today and really brought me back quickly, plus one for Ragnarok Ultra. Definitely something to consider in the future if you are looking for an all inclusive pwo. This is a big change for me since I am a HUGE fan of Jack3d and it is bare bones as you all know. Next morning workout will be 2 scoops of Jack3d and if I get it in while doing this log I will compare the two experiences.
Umm... that is what I got for now, best get to work here before people start poking their heads in the office!
Nice work brother!
Thanks Kleen... it was a workout to say the least but I am bummed the hip issue is in fact an issue beyond what rest can heal. More details on that once I know, right now I am going to pack up and head to NOLA for some good ol' fashion Mardi Gras craziness, wish me luck!
Have a blast Bro! Be safe and stay off the side streets!!! Have had 2 friends stabbed there on seperate occasions.
Alrighty, back home again and survived all the mayhem. Good times, now it is business as usual after today. Need to get things back in order then will be back to the workouts tomorrow, in too late last night, need to go see my friends new baby that was born Tuesday tonight, then hitting the gym this Friday.
Hurting but got a good one in today!
Friday workout - Back/bis
3 scoops Jack3d - ya, I was REALLY tired and still recovering, thank god for this.
Pull ups - 4x8 body weight
Lat pull down - New machine, it was 4x10 of 2 plates per arm... weird but love the motion and ability to dial in on the lower lats. Going to be a staple in the future.
Bent over rows - 4x10x135 pounds
Goodmornings - 1xBW, 2x10 pounds, 1x25 pounds Taking easy and back was pretty toasted by this point.
Straight bar curls - 4x10, Bar, 65, 75, 85 First time doing this in a while, happy with the weights. The back pump I had was making this harder then it should have been.
Standing preacher curls - 4x10, 55, 65, 75, 75
Incline Curls - 2x10, 25 pound DB
Seated hammers - 2x10, 25 pound DB
By this point I wanted to die, so shot for the week of bad diet and too much booze. Thank god for SomnidrenGH because it made the sleep I got the last two days helpful, another two nights of good sleep and proper nutrition and I should be back on track. Going to up the carbs over the weekend since my body is crying for them so weight may be up a bit on Monday... it was 201 yesterday morning I believe.
glad to see you're doing well and had a good time bud!
Saturday workout - Chest/Tris
3 AI Motivate
3 Scoops USPowders DominATP
Chest - No weights posted, don't remember all of them
Incline DB - 4 sets of 10
Decline Bench - 3 sets with 1 double drop
Freemotion Cable Press - 4 sets
Tris - No weights posted, don't remember all of them
Dips - BW 4 sets of 12
Overhead tricep press - 2 sets, new machine, sucked so moved on due to elbow discomfort
Tricep pushdowns w/ rope - 4 sets of 10
That was if for Saturday; I almost never do a weekend workout and was doing this with only a scoop of protein pwo so I was pretty spent. Surprisingly the Motivate didn't do much for me but I imagine that is because I had food in my stomach. Off of SomnidrenGH for the weekend, took my dose last night (Sunday) and again has great sleep quality, crazy vivid dreams and felt awake quickly once I was up.
For those who care, went to the Doc this morning and have some minor bursitis in my hip. I am going to see a specialist soon and hopefully I can get some instructions on how to work around it until the inflammation is relieved. Also got some drugs (big surprise, American medicine at its finest) so we will see what that does for me. Plan will be to finish out the log then get into a cutting phase for 30-40 days then onto 12 weeks of nastiness.
So far my impressions of SomnidrenGH are all positive and it is by far the best sleep aid besides melatonin that I have taken. I respond well to melatonin but have to watch how long I take it for or I tend to build a slight dependency. I notice on the nights I am off of SGH I still sleep well and don't think I am really missing too much. Also, the libido boost and obvious increase in LH is a nice boost. It seems to have helped me maintain strength even though I am eating at maintenance or below, and with my irregular lifting schedule lately that says A LOT about the product. More to come once I finish the bottle, should be done at the end of the week I believe.
Unrelated to SomnidrenGH log
To those that are interested and want to chime in; here is the layout of my upcoming cut that I am going to do. The focus is going to be on cardio as opposed to lifting though I am going still get 2-3 full body days in a week. My cardio will be at least 3 mornings a week and that many nights a week as well, including at least one run each weekend. I am not nearly that concerned with muscle loss as I am getting rid of some fat mass in troubled areas. I am going to follow the diet that is in the USP manual that came with OEP from the inner circle. I am basically doing this now and continue to slowly drop weight and have leveled off at 197-198, the lowest I have been in years. That being said, here is my goal by the end of the 40 or so days that I am going to do this: 180 pounds, yes you read that right! I really need to lose that much fat around my waste, thighs and under my chest.
Ok, on to the fun part of all of this, what am I going to take to ASSIST in the fat loss.
USP Labs OEP: 1-2 AM, 1 PM
PAL Reset AD: 1 AM, 1 PM
LG Ghenerate: 6-7 sprays AM, 6-8 sprays PM
RPN DCP: 3 AM, 3 PM
NutraPlanet Fish Oil: 10-15 caps per day
Now Adam Multi-V: AM
Genomyx Protocol: 1 dose either AM or PM
LG EAA-BCAA: 1 dose either AM or PM
PAL ATP Tabs: Pre resistance training, 1-2 tabs
USP Labs AP: 1 with carb containing meal
So I ALSO have a bottle of TNA laying around, hint hint, and 3 bottles of Prime but I really am saving the Prime for later with my Natadrol PCT. I am thinking that the TNA will help with the recovery and increased fat burning potential so I will most likely throw that in as well; opinions are welcome on this addition.
After this ~40 days here is my plan; again, any critiquing is welcome because some of this is not bought yet.
LG Natadrol: 2 bottles at 6 pills a day
LG Ghenerate: Same as above until I run out
LG Anadraulic State GT-SE: Once it is out, hopefully in time!
Omega Ultima: If ASGT is not out, this will be here along with AI Motivate for a stim or my standby Jack3d.
USP AP or AI Glycobol: This will be a gametime decision, really want to try Glycobol and may pick up a sample bottle to run on my cut to see how I respond... AP and I did not get along that well last time so we will see.
USP Prime: 6/9 protocol for PCT, progressing to 8/11 as progress slows.
LG T-911: Recommended PCT for Natadrol, if not enough I can get some AI TestoPro to throw in the mix or Stoked.
Here is the scary part, I have almost all of this less AS-GTSE/Ultima/Glycobol. I need to get some Anabolic Pump eventually but like I said, it is tbd if that is going to be used or Glycobol. Ok, enough rambling, let me know your thoughts on this plan, many of you are smarter than I!
Monday workout - Running Cardio
AppNut Neovar Recomped - 3 caps
AppNut RPM - 2 Caps
Ran for 25+ minutes, moderate tempo, excellent sweat and aggression from the RPM. Definitely like RPM for cardio, will have to try it for some resistance training, maybe tomorrow when I do legs. That is all for today, catch you all tomorrow.
Your supps seem fine. Have you worked out your diet yet, how much of a deficit ? Start off at around 3 hours cardio a week, shorter intensive and add if you stall. Same with diet reduce calories only as you need to, have a plan in place of the adjustments your going to make. It's all about the adjustments. Aim at 1.5 to 2 lbs a week to start untill you get closer then it's more like 1 lb. When you don't hit those goals assess body composition and adjust as needed.

I am really looking at running the diet as laid out by USP, I just need to figure out where that will put me in regards to a calorie deficit. I want to start at 300, then go 400, then 500 for the last few weeks if I can keep making positive changes. My morning runs are going to be HIIT, short duration, high intensity and the evening ones will be medium intensity steady state. I am limited in what I can do because of my asthma in regards to HIIT at the level it is most beneficial AND to top it off they discontinued the one inhaler I take pwo that actually helps! Argh!!!
Thanks for your input DW, it's always appreciated.
