alright hey guys im a MFF member and joined this site to run this log for the guys at MN.
It took a few days to activate my account so here is everything up to date!
Thank you MN team for hooking me up!
After a long struggle with the EVIL UPS delivery guys I finally have my Xfactor.
Here are my starting stats.
chest : 43inch ( under arm pits)
arms 16.5inch (Cold Flex)
Height 5 10ish
GOALS: Right now even with it being winter I want to shred some more BF and gain my most lacking part which is arms. I will be doing 15min HITT for cardio and training will hopefully be 5 days aweek long as work doesnt **** me over. Rest days will vary tho.
DIET: Wont be anything to crazy I save that for spring when ill do keto or something. So I will just update daily meals as I go.
DOSING: 2AM - 2PM but might switch to 4 pre workout.
Today will be day 2 when I get back from the gym.

Felt good today. I did 17 min of hard fast HIIT on the tread mill and felt great. Then when I was doing bunch of random core exercises just from pulling and pushing I was getting arm pumps. And veins coming out down my forearms that arent usually there unless im doing hard arms.
Again super tired gettting home from work and 30 min after taking XFA I got great energy again!

DAY 24 ( thought it was less then that but I only got 4 caps left in bottle 1)
So here is the plan. since im working like a mother ****er these days im going to double up muscle groups and aim for 3- 4 days a week at the gym.
Today I did chest and triceps and it actually went pretty wekk for how exhausted I am.. new job is really gnarly but im lovning it. I forsure dont gota worry about cardio lol.
Man the pumps!!! I did chest/triceps and my biceps were starting to get pumps I love it. Altho I did have a bit of trouble with elbows today but nothing serious.
I feel like After this week of work I would have hit under 180 lbs but weighted in right now at 182lbs.. cuz I have been burning least triple the calories and not taking in triple since starting new job.
So Im going to say thank you to XFA for keeping muscle together while I beat the **** out of them for 15 hours!
This workout was deffently weaker then normal but I was pushing real slow solid reps and felt good for how drained I am.
Free motion seated flys
MTS decline hammer strength

ended with 2 sets wide grip dips X15
Slept like a baby last night and going to do nothing but sleep tonight and hopefully be good for a big back/bicep workout tomorrow!
Man no wonder you slept good, kickass w/o there.
Alrighty Sunday I did back and biceps, I cant remember all the numbers but it was a nice lift. The pumps at this point are unbelievable...specially now doing the muscle group splits.. I feel my entire body blow up every lift!!
I hung out with my ex the other night and she was sayign my arms and shoulders look bigger the 2 groups I been focusing on the most.
weight is maintaining at 182lbs which is fine.. I might even try to shred up a little see if I can get rid of some belly fat ( all my BF is unfortunately stored in my lower chest and belly)
Then I can work on a clean bulk in a month for winter!
Yesterday I worked out Legs/Shoulders
smith shoulder press

lateral raises ( machine)
165 X10 X2
