  1. Grambo takes on MN X-Factor Advanced (Sponsored)


    Here is my X-factor Advanced Log...........sub and be my friend





    Stats:

    Age: 24

    Height: 5'11
    Weight: 191.2lbs - big cheat pizza last night.
    Measurements:
    Chest: 42- under armpits 50- total around arms
    Quads: 22in
    Wasit (just under belly button): 33in

    Goals for the log: Hoping to put on a few LBs of muscle while more importantly losing some BF%s (who doesn't want this?)

    Diet: Going to be more a cutting diet High protein/medium carb/medium fats, using one I have used in the past with some egg whites taking place of some protein shakes. BCAAs during training.

    Training: Going to use some FST-7 style workouts. I like the 7 set pumps and should be a good combo with the XFA. Also be doing mostly low impact cardio except for a few interval style runs I am doing 3x a week.

    Monday: Chest
    Tuesday: Back
    Wednesday:
    Thursday: Quads
    Friday: Arms
    Saturday: Delts/Hams
    Sunday:

    Getting diet and training in check since starting Pharmacy school has been a bit of a chore so trying to get back on track with this log! **** is taking over my life a little bit but you can't disregard outside life or you will go crazy. Big exam tomorrow in Pharmaceutics about to get down on after I kill some food.

    Been lifting weights for about 12 years+ now so its been a journey hahaha its great when 225 is just your repping weight. Those aren't to failure or anything (no spotters) probably easily bump it up next week. Usually week 1 is a feeling out week.

    You'll get there no worries

    Definitely should do that.

    I have always wanted to use it but the price always made me delay purchase so pretty excited about this log actually. Lots of people I respect opinions of have good things to say.

    Hopefully get some really nice recomp effects. Trying to stay away from.......non natural "supplements" for awhile haha

    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

  9. In... looking forward to seeing what the new formula can do.

  10. Sub! I love regular x factor. I'm excited to see what this Does for you. I always got a nasty strength increase while leaning out. And sore joints but they address that in the advanced formula

  11. U got my sub.

  12. In for the new X..

  13. Awesome grams can't wait to follow this. What exactly is x factor?

    Yeah I remember my first time repping 225... Oh that was only 2 workouts ago. Lol hopefully i can hang on to my strength from SD. I'm hoping that recycle and slinshot you and Greg gave me will help me keep it.
    I'm 2 plate guy on MFF.


    Man those FST sets sound horrible. I thought a rest pause set was bad enough but doing more sets and flexing gosh I can only imagine. What's the science behind the flexing while resting?


    Tear it up bro

    X- Factor is in the most basic sense Arachidonic Acid a pro-inflammatory fatty acid.

    X-Factor Advanced is a Prop blend of

    40% ArA in proprietary Fatty Acid/Oil Blend,Ultra Purified Omega-3 concentrated Fish Oil, Boswellia Serrata Resin 18%

    I hope the SS/Recycle does that stack justice and keeps you at the 225 reps! haha

    The FST sets are amazing and horrible all at once haha basically just gives you a HUGE pump and supposedly this helps shuttle a lot of nutrients to the muscles being worked. Search FST-7 to find the articles explaining it more. I don't know it is all 100% true but the theory is good and at the very least gives the muscle some different stimulus than it might be used to.

  15. I will be following along. I will be starting my 50 day of X-factor advanced. Give it hell bro!!!!

  16. With original x-factor, I found results best at 1.5x label dosing (went as high as 2 + 3x label, with no additional effects). At label dosing, I always found it taking hitting the second bottle to really notice effects, at the 1.5x dosing, you'd start seeing it by second week

  17. X Factor does seem to work really well with FST-7, the pumps are so damn good on XF that it takes FST-7 to a whole new painful and yet blissful level.

    CARDIO - 2 hours post workout

    Played two intramurla volleyball games, best of 3 ended up doing 5 matches total......only won one lol but thats coed for you. I rocked it and am now the favorite first year to the upper class people lol


    Diet


    Meal 1: 2 Scoops Whey + Kashi Go Lean instant oatmeal
    (Waaaay to long a break from 1 to 2 but thats life sometimes)
    Meal 2: 8oz Turkey breast on 2 whole wheat slices of bread + 1 Banana + hard boiled egg
    Meal 3: Postworkout: 2 scoops Whey + banana + 2 WW slices of bread
    Meal 4: 2 Scoops of Whey + Kashi Go Lean instant oatmeal

    Horrible macro breakdown today :fail:



    NOTES


    - Couldn't sleep due to stimulant intake last night, MAYBE got 3 hours. Had a huge test that felt like it went fairly well though spent all day studying.
    - Forced myself into the gym even being exhausted. Not the best day but happy I made myself get in there.
    - I was super pumped in the gym today, I didn't take anything except some Redline (insert whatever name it is now) sample I had. And should have been detrimental to pump.....not at all full solid pumps that I recognize from when using venegeance. So definitley ArA kicking in a bit in that regard.
    - Oh and then hit up two volleyball intramural games so typing this I am falling asleep from exhaustion and just going to have to wake up early to study for this quiz because I am not being productive.

  22. solid log here can't say I know alot about xf but I keep seeing it here and there so I'm in on this one.

  23. How does this product compare to hemodraulix? I know there are a bit different ingredients, but the pumps from hemo were intense to say the least, and I am pretty sure that the AA is what made it so... however, I have always heard that x factor was the go to AA product.... so kinda wondering if there are parallels.

    Ya I am curious to know this too. Because I have 2 bottles of Hemo and want to get Test Factor to stack with it.

  25. UPDATES

    DAY 3

    Training - CARDIO


    Interval Training

    5 minute warm up
    1 minute Run (8.0 MPH, last 2 at 9.0MPH)
    1.5 minute walk (4.0MPH)
    x8
    5 minute cool down



    Diet


    Decently clean diet today, I can't remember the exact breakdown of things today but I had some bomb chilli at my parents house with my brother.
    Cheated a bit with a brownie lol but honestly my body was craving some extra nutrients.




    NOTES


    -Holy **** every muscle in my body was sore from the back workout and then 2 full volleyball games (where I was almost a one man team lol). You use some muscles you aren't used to with the sprinting, twisting and diving. So fun though can't wait until next Tuesday.
    - Those runs were TOUGH but I felt really good after. Nice getting that cardio back up and I actually use an Iphone Application called "Get Fit" that tells you when to run and walk and encourages you lol pretty cool actually.
    - Just trying to improve some conditioning. I am going to TRY and get some Prolwer sprints in this weekend

  26. DAY 4

    Training - REST


    In class 8-5 today and I just felt mentally and physically beat so I listened to my body and just chalked today up to a rest day. Hit it hard next few days.
    Probably hit arms with interval run tomorrow and legs on saturday is the game plan!.......Plus Biochemistry Exam 2 studying all weekend


    Diet


    Back on track today

    Meal 1: 1/2 cup of oats + 2 scoops whey
    Meal 2: Chicken breast (~8+oz) plus 1 cup of green beans
    Meal 3: SANDWICH (whole wheat bread (22g CHO total) ~8oz of turkey)
    Meal 4: 5 eggs + 5 egg whites with a dash of cheese mmmmmm

    Had 2 spoonfuls of natural PB later as well haha

    Meal 5: 2 scoops of whey + 5g fish oil



    NOTES


    -Not much to note today as far as the supplement goes as I didn't hit the gym. I am feeling slightly more full than normal particularly in the arms. Not a bad thing at all!
    - My dosing schedule has been 3 preworkout and then 1 several hours away (before with PM workouts and after with AM workouts.) I may try all 4 before workout of arm day tomorrow.

    I think Pump wise X-factor (ArA) is going to give some great pumps. I am not sure if these two products are really completely comparable as they are a tad different. I haven't used Hemo though so maybe the reps can answer these questions better than I can. I know the amount of ArA is much less but thats about it.

    cool thanks for the info.

    No problem. Xfactor Advanced is supposed to be a really good update to the original XF which is still around and can be had relatively cheap. The price on ArA is slightly high and has always put me off...... Which is stupid as ive spent more money on worthless junk before lol everyone I know that I have high opinion for has great things to say about XF. It's been on my try list for awhile and was psyched to get to log it.

    It's got studies and science behind it and has been around a long while. MN is a solid company too so that's always a good thing.

  30. I have always followed ArA with interest but was concerned about it being too much for my recovery abilities with my advanced age.
