What's up AM, this will be my first attempt at a well kept log, as well as my first sponsored log, so I figure I may as well get it right! I'm not going to go through the trouble of posting the ingredient profile or marketing blurb aboutbecause there are countless other threads just on the first page with that info already there!!! Huge HUGE Thanks to AI for giving me this fantastic opportunity! I've seen so many great logs with huge results already!!
A little bit about me first; I'm 23 years old, 6'1", 230... Been playing football and lacrosse all my life, and have a pretty athletic frame because of it... I don't have any calipers at home, but if I had to guess I would say I'm sitting around 10% BF or so.
My mentality with my diet and training is relatively extreme by most bodybuilders standards, but it has worked extremely well for me for the few months that I've been on it. I run a Cyclical Keto Diet (CKD henceforth). Mon-Thurs <50 carbs a day, Fri moderate carbs & cheat window of 3 hours, Sat & Sun moderate carbs from fruits/veggies & another cheat window on Sunday night!
I train with low reps and heavy weight as often as possible... I'll generally be in the gym Mon-Fri working hard and might come in saturday for some low intensity cardio (treadmill, bike, stairstepper). I know that this goes against most people's philosophy of "overtraining", but that's one thing I don't believe in at all... Here is a good quote from John Broz of what I mean:
this is a tough one to swallow for most... THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OVERTRAINING!!! if you can't do something you are not in good enough shape. Here is a story:
IF you got a job as a man (or run a jackhammer, or some other physically demanding job) and had to pick up heavy cans all day long, I'm sure the first day would be very difficult - possibly almost impossible for some to complete so what do you do? take 3 days off and possibly lose your job? NO! you would take your sore, beaten self to work the next day. You would mope around and be fatigued - much less energetic than the previous day, but you would make yourself get through it. Get home, soak in the tub, take aspirin, etc. The next day would be worse..etc. etc. Eventually you will be running down the street tossing cans around and joking with your coworkers. How did this happen? You forced your body to adapt to the job at hand! IF you cant' squat everyday, lift heavy everyday then you are not OVERTRAINED, you are UNDERTRAINED!
Could a random person off the street come to the gym with you and do your exact workout? probably not - cause they are undertrained. Same goes with most when compared to elite athletes.
That being said... TestoPRO... Day 1!!!
The first thing I've noticed about this stuff is the funky smell... I'm not sure if I like it or hate it yet, but it's definitely there! Dosing 2 AM w/ breakfast & 2 PM w/ preworkout around 30 minutes before I hit the gym.

Bent over DB Rows:
High Rows (hammer strength machine)
Grip BB curls supersetted w/ regular curls
Hammer Curls (DB)
Hanging leg raises
Ab Wheel (This thing is killer!! & cheap!)
I also want to give a shoutout to White Flood from CL which I began taking today as my new preworkout as well... This stuff is absolutely amazing! The Tingles were a bit strange at first, as well as the GABA breathing, but I had a focus like never before in the Gym today! I know that it'll take a few days for the TestoPRO to kick in, I cant even fathom how much better my workouts will be then!
Long drawn out post... Exhausted! Time to grub!
