    Driven Sports 12 week Lean Mass this 50 yr. olds Ass


    Hey, this is my first log attempt and I thought I'd invite everyone to tag along for the ride.

    I will attempt to keep this log on a daily basis or as close as possible to that.
    I'll list my personal starting info, the stack info, and what my goals are.

    The goal is to make it as detailed as possible(without being boring). I'll record all starting measurements and then post final measurements at the end.

    I'll report on these items-
    Lifting routine
    Strength gains
    Energy(drive)
    Focus
    Pump
    Libido
    and any other general conditions that may exist

    Stats-
    50 yrs. old
    6'
    197lbs.
    My workout routine is broken up by body part and I do lift heavy. This stack WILL be put to the test. General cardio workouts will be included.
    My goal is to add lean mass while gaining strength(isn't that everyone's goal!!!)

    Stack-
    Triazole
    Activate Xtreme
    Lean Xtreme
    Super Cissus RX
    Nutraplanet CEE
    HGHUp
    I have done other stacks and had great results so I'm really thinking this stack(the products in it) has great potential to help me reach my goals.

    I welcome any and all comments, suggestions, and inputs.

    Thanks for reading...

    Looking forward to seeing what happens as far as results. I am going to get a little T&A soon and our age is similar.

    Day 1


    Today was first day on the stack.

    Very rushed as wife was starting school tonight. Only had 45 mins. to workout.

    Chest/Bicep
    Flat bench- 185x10, 225x10x2, 185x10x2
    Incline bench- 135x10x2, 185x10x2
    Seated incline press- 190x10, 210x10, 190x10
    Seated machine fly- 190x10x3
    Dumbell curl- 30x10x2, 40x10, 45x10, 25x10
    Seated machine curl- 110x10x3

    Elbow was really flaring up today so curls were light and it still was killing me. Need the cissus to kick in.

    Strength- too early
    Energy-5/10- Long day
    Focus-4/10- Not there, too much on the mind, rushed workout
    Pump-7/10- Felt chest after second set, great vascularity
    Libido-4/10- not there, too much stress
    Stress-8/10- just to qualify, I'm leading the project to build my company a new facility and it's at a critical point with finances and build schedule.

    First day feeling was good. Just taking the Lean xtreme and Activate xtreme per the stack plan, Triazole starts in week 3.

    Thanks

    That was the way I was planning to run the two as well. Get the ActX up and running and then bring the Tzole in. It has begun!!

    Day 2


    Was a little more sore than usual so the rushed workout with high reps gave me a good pump and soreness the next day.

    Day 2 was an off day so no workout but I am noticing some effects.

    In general my mood was good, it seems like I'm feeling more mellow and focused. The Lean Xtreme is not giving me any energy bump but it is limiting my appetite.

    I spent 6 hours leading a meeting yesterday with a rotating group of people and managed to remain focused and driven the entire time.
    Sleep was great last night and woke up with wood this morning.

    Today is Back and Tri's.

    Thanks everyone for following along...

    Day 3


    Back & Tri's

    Widegrip pulldowns- 130x10, 165x10x2, 190x10x2, 130x10
    Closegrip pulldowns- 130x10, 165x10x2, 190x10x2, 130x10
    Seated cable rows- 150x10x2, 175x10x2, 150x10
    Seated machine rows- 135x10, 160x10x2, 175x10x2
    T-bar Tricep pushdown-100x10, 130x10, 150x10x2
    Seated tricep extentions-70x10x2,90x10x2,100x10,90x10
    Seated tricep press-210x10x2,290x10x3,210x10

    This is not my normal complete workout but slightly shortened due to adjusting to the wife's new schedule. I should be back on track this weekend.

    Strength- good but still early
    Energy-7/10-better today, good drive
    Focus-6/10-much more into the workout today
    Pump-6/10- OK but vascularity was thru the roof, veins poppin'
    Libido-4/10- No change
    Stress-6/10- much better, something is making me feel more even and mellow. Possibly the Activate xtreme?

    Sleep was good and woke up with wood again, very good sign.
    Weighed in at 194.8lbs today. Maybe the Lean xtreme is cutting my water quickly?
    Either way I don't mind the scale going down alittle as long as strength stays good.

    Just starting but like the way I'm feeling as something is helping reduce the stress. Staying focused on dosing all these supps at the right time for max affect.

    Day 6


    Leg day w/Abs

    Calf extentions-100x10,150x10x3
    Seated leg press-200x10,295x10x2,250x10
    40deg. leg press-270x10,360x10x2,450x10x2,360x1 0

    Abs cable crunch-75x20x3
    Ab crunch machine-50crunchesx3sets
    Machine crunch- 200x25x3

    Strength- Legs felt really good, all strong lifts
    Energy-7/10- felt good, no fatigue
    Focus-7/10- was looking forward to legs so workout was good
    Pump-6/10- felt the muscles today
    Libido-8/10- it's coming on strong, this weekend was gooood
    Stress-5/10- stress has really subsided since starting this stack, not sure why?

    Overall good workout and generally feeling pretty good. Kinda feeling mellow which is odd for me as I'm usually high strung, but I like it.
    One more week and I add the Triazole to the stack. Looking forward to it.

    The one odd thing is my weight is swinging all over the place. Friday I was 194lbs. today I'm 199lbs. Not sure why the big swings up and down?

    Good question but the odd part is I'm in a calorie deficit at the moment.
    I have always had swings of 2 lbs. sometime 3lbs. but 5 seems high.

    I'll weigh in tomorrow and see where I'm at and update with my chest/bi report.

    Day 7


    Chest and Bi's w/ tri's

    Did a killer chest/ tri workout. The elbow was so bad I had to give up on bicep workout after 2 exercizes. The after affect kept me up half the night due to overdoing it. Still real bad now.

    Good overall chest with everything kinda clicking. No energy or focus issues, and had time for a complete workout. The tri's were really pumped during the workout and felt strong the entire time.

    Strength- good and solid
    Energy-7/10- no issues there, felt no fatigue
    Focus-7/10- Head was in it tonight
    Pump-7/10- felt good overall pump
    Libido-6/10- had a good weekend so wasn't thinking about it today
    Stress5/10- this is the suprising part. Whatever is in these supps is helping with my stress levels, perhaps combined with being off stims after about 4 months.

    Overall feeling good about things. Still more soreness than usual but let's see how that plays out.
    Weighed in at 197lbs. even today.

    Thanks

    Subbed, I'm only a youngster at 40 () but am planning using this stack next year as well.

    "Stress5/10- this is the suprising part. Whatever is in these supps is helping with my stress levels, perhaps combined with being off stims after about 4 months."

    It could be the Lean Xtreme helping with the stress as it reduces cortisol.

    warsteiner, good point on the cortisol.
    I have noticed a tremendous difference in my daily stress level. Really happy about it because I'm kinda always stressed with job stuff.

    Day 9


    Back/shoulder & Abs

    Great overall workout-
    Seated machine lat pulldowns
    close-grip cable pulldowns
    seated machine rows
    and did multiple shoulder cable exercizes. Just did a great overall shoulder routine from all angles.
    Moved on to Abs with cable crunches, machine crunches, side machine crunches, ect.

    Strength- 7/10-feeling good strength throughout the entire workout
    Energy-8/10- seem to have no issues here, stamina is really staying strong
    Focus-7/10-Head is in the game, not letting anything distract from my workouts
    Pump-7/10-I am beginning to feel the abs during most workouts which means they are tightening up, which I like. Felt the wings in my back last night.
    Libido-6/10- Had a great weekend so not really thinking about it but feel it is no issue if needed to respond.
    Stress-4/10-I love this part. I have not been busier at work or more hectic at home but am remaining very calm and cool.

    Was really into the workout and feeling like the stack is supporting me, possibly a placebo affect but it feels good. Weight was at 197lbs. today.
    Start Triazole in 3 days, can't wait for it!!!

    Anyone have any suggestions to try and improve my gains? Changing routine? eating more?
    Would apprciate any input people have.

    Thanks...

    I have a question for the DS reps. If stacking ActX/TZole, would you lower the TZole dose since ActX has some pZole in it?

    Good question.

    I was going to go with 3 Triazole a day from everything I've read on it but would love to here a reps opinion about the stack balance.

    I'd only lower the Triazole dose if you're in the 160-170lb weight range.

    Day 12


    Leg and Ab day.
    Actually was mentally psyched for today. Went to the gym wanting to kill leg and accomplished my goal!!!

    40deg. legpress-230x10,360x10,450x10x2,500x8(P R!!!),500x6,360x10
    Leg extention- 150x10,160x10,170x10x2(PR),120 x10
    Seated calf raises-90x15x3
    Seated calf extentions-150x15x2,210x15x2,150x15
    Ab cable crunch-130x20,140x20,150x20x2
    Ab crunch-50x4sets
    Leg raise machine w/20lbs added- 30repsx4sets

    Strength- Absolutely insane- Hit 500 on leg, a PR for me!!!
    Energy-8/10-Drive was good the entire workout, couldn't stop me
    Focus-8/10-would not be distracted today, really into it
    Pump-7/10-felt individual leg muscles and was stretching often to stay loose
    Libido-7/10- feeling it today
    Stress-4/10- feeling good today, lot's to do but no worries

    I went to the gym planning to kill it and did. I was looking forward to today and exceeded my expectations. Was walking in the mall about 2 hours later and had "rubber legs". Abs are feeling good.
    Weighed in at 195lbs. today. I'm good if my weight goes down to 190 or so as long as my lifts continue to go up!!!

    Triazole starts Monday!!! Getting ready as I'm not exactly sure what to expect with an AI but looking forward to it after reading so many good things.
    I'm feeling like the stack is starting to kick in now. My waist is looking slightly slimmer and my confidence in my appearance is up.

    Day 13


    Chest and Tri's
    Left elbow still hurting so skipping bicep for the time being.

    Incline bench-135x10,155x10,175x10x2,135x10
    Closegrip bench-135x10,155x10,135x10
    Cable fly-100x10x2,140x10x2,100x10x2
    Upward cable fly-50x10x2,60x10x2
    Pec deck fly-150x10x2,170x10x2,150x10
    Shoulder shrug DB-75x15x3
    Shoulder shrug cable-200x15x3
    Tricep straight bar pushdown-130x10x2,150x10x2,160x10,130x1 0
    Single arm tricep cable pushdown-100x10x2,110x10x2

    Seated tricep pressdown-210x10x3,240x10x2
    Abs- about 200 crunches thrown in

    Strength- Felt explosive and did heavy sets yet thought I was fading at times
    Energy-7/10-Good drive, fatigued from leg yesterday?
    Focus-8/10-In the zone, kept pushing even with fatigued feeling at times
    Pump-8/10-Triceps were exploding, chest felt good and full
    Libido-7/10- Feeling good
    Stress-4/10-No issue, I guess I had a cortisol issue because I feel so different since starting this stack and I guess the Lean xtreme is helping

    Did some good overall heavy lifting today and pushed through any feelings of fading or fatigue. Good pump today, legs still have that rubbery feeling from yesterday, I like it!!!
    Weighed in at 194.5lbs. today, I like that weight or slightly lower.

    Triazole tomorrow!!! Super psyched. I think I've mentioned that before!!!

    Thanks for reading...
    Happy Halloween to all.

    Robboe, my Tzole is in the mail. Is a 2/1 ed dosing format the way to go?
