    Doing the MONSTERMASH with Protocol V2 Cherry


    Running Genomyx's Protocol V2-Cherry Flavor on my New years recomp!

    Thanks to Genomyx for letting me log this product!

    The Plan:

    My Macros are 275/ 275-250-200/ 50 (P/C/F)

    Staple supps-

    Krillipid Balance- 2 caps/day
    Universal Liver tabs -up to 12/day
    MST Mycogreen- 4 caps/day
    Thorne Basic B complex- 1 cap/day

    Cut off my creatine and other supps for the log to try and keep it all about the Protocol V2.

    I'm gonna dose it 2x per day, everyday. On workout days, one dose before my preworkout meal and one immediately after my workout. On non-workout days I'll dose it once first thing before breakfast and again before lunch.

    My workout- Is the Scott Herman plan my workout buddy found on Youtube. We needed something new and were too lazy to create something ourselves haha. It's pretty decent if you haven't heard of it take a look.

    Day 1- Cherry is Popped!

    Workout: Chest

    DB Flat Bench
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (3drops)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Incline DB Bench
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (3drops)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Upright Cable Fly
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (2drops)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Bent-Over One Arm Cable press
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (2drops)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Standing Cable Fly
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (2drops)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Hammer-Strength Incline Chest Press
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (2drops)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps

    So, as planned I did one dose before my pre-workout meal and again immediately after my workout. the first thing i noticed is the dose doesn't go by *scoops haha. No problem there since i had my scale handy and i weighed out the 8.25g (which came out to about 1 1/2 scoops for those w/o a scale). EDIT: should be 2 scoops per serving.

    First Impression: The V2's Cherry flavor is on point! I would say it tastes similar to cherry kool-aid (the lower sugar kind). I was skeptical at first since most cherry flavored supps are known for having a "medicine-like" aftertaste BUT this was not the case w/ V2. I actually enjoyed downing both of my doses which is awesome since the first version was kind of a chore to drink (worth the results though ).

    Besides taste, the tingles were a little less pronounced than with version 1 and it mixed a little easier in my shaker bottle- V1 took a little longer for the white flakes (I'm guessing Luecine?) to dissolve. As far as recovery I'll comment on that after a few days to let the product do it's thing. I consistently get some serious DOMS from this workout plan so I'll definitely have a good idea if Protocol V2 is helping.

    Turns out it should say 2 scoops so thats what I'll be doing from now on.

    Cherry flavor is delicious! My girl was standing near me when I opened my tub this morning and commented on how good it smelled haha.

    in! you're spot on with your taste assessment, too... i thought the same thing.

    as for the label, the manufacturer goofed, so what you see on the ingredient panel should reflect 2 scoops.

    in essence, the user should take 2 scoops, twice/day. at that rate, there's still 30 days' worth.

    Protocol is ok for women too? If so I might be able to get my girl to thrown in on that 3 tub volume discount at NP!

    DAY 2-

    Workout: Back

    Hammer-Strength Lat Pull-Down
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (1 drop, 16 reps)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Reverse Lat Pull-Down
    6-8 reps w/ drop-set (1 drop, 16 reps)
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    Seated Cable Row
    16 reps w/ drop-set (1 drop, 16 reps)

    6-8 reps
    Lat Push-Down
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps
    6-8 reps

    Comments:OK, two full scoops with each dose definitely gave me the tingles and helped a little more with delaying that burn.

    IDk if it's the Agmatine Sulfate in Protocol but I did notice a nice muscle fullness as I drove home from the gym to get my post-workout meal in. The best way I can think to describe it is, the pump came home with me.



    As for the taste... still delicious!

    Ok, so DAY-3 was a rest day for me.

    Rest Day Protocol:I took my first serving of 2 scoops first thing in the morning 15 minutes pre-breakfast and took my second dose 15 minutes before lunch. I'll do this every rest day unless i find a more efficient way to dose it on rest days ( any suggestions would be appreciated).

    *On a side note, i didn't get the best of sleep last night because of a late night call from my fiance. Only got about 5 hours give or take...

    Not sure if i should train legs today or rest. To train, or not to train: that is the question. I'll more than likely tough it but not sure if it'll effect my progress. Todays main goal will be to get to sleep on-time.

    just as a reference point, on my non-training days, i usually have that early morning dose and then a second between lunch and dinner.

    Thanks for the input Smitty. Maybe I'll try to spread out the doses a little more on non-training days. After this log I might try 3-4 doses a day and see how it treats me.

    i actually had tried mega-dosing that way with V1 just to get that gram of agmatine per day like MAN blueprint would offer... this is before my position with the company, so it was pricey to consistently dose that high.

    luckily, with companies like SNS putting out a capped agmatine product, it awards an opportunity to not have to go through a protocol tub every 15 days.

    I forgot SNS has bulk caps of agmatine thanks!

    Yeah, I was thinking since you guys have the volume discount I could get away with trying it (2 tubs for me and 1 for the soon to be Mrs.).

    I'd optimally like to get 3g of LCLT a day and 1g of agmatine. you should tell Dsade to get those bulk tubs of LCLT and Plcar back now!

    Heavy- in between each set of single leg hammies. I don't really count on these I go by feel and my calfs respond well to the abuse. Also, I angle my heels differently each set to hit all sides.

    Comments:
    Ok, yesterday's workout is what's truly putting Protocol's recovery boosting effects to the test IMO. I always hit this workout hard and my intensity was there despite lack of sleep from the previous night (thanks to my christmas gift from the woman, an Ipod-my first ever).

    Today I'm feeling heavily worked and sore but not overly so, I'm kinda psyched about that. I figured I'd have trouble getting out of bed this morning since I could barely walk down the stairs geting out of the gym and I haven't really hit them this hard like that since before the holiday break.

    with that sale, i say give it a shot... there was a noticeable difference between standard dosing and double-dosing for me.

    as for the bulk powders, if the demand is there, we'll do it... last i heard, matt was considering bringing a couple back.

    Had another awesome workout, triceps and biceps are feeling great! I've been able to keep my intensity high through out my workouts which is a major plus with these high volume workouts.On a side note, I have to start getting more ab workouts in on my off days since it's the only muscle group I haven't been hitting hard and I think if all goes well I'll start my HIIT cardio next week.

    Hey, been without a computer for a bit but to answer your question I usually workout out for two days and rest one day. With the snow storms, night school and finals I've been forced to workout when I can so things get a little jumbled at times.

    i understand completely... we were rocked by a nor'easter on wednesday and it threw my rotation all out of whack.

    Finally back to having my computer. Everything is coming along great but I think I need to start my HIIT cardio this week. Tore it up over the weekend with shoulders and legs, now I'll take today to rest,study, and prep food for the week.

    More snow and ice today... this is getting ridiculous.

    Day 14

    Been going strong on the routine with no noticeable strength loss.
    I've slowly cut down my calories by 250 total for this week and I've started HIIT cardio on the eliptical too.

    My workouts haven't been getting me nearly as sore as last week despite adding weight. gotta say I'm pretty happy with my results so far but I still have a way to go.

    can't recall your address, but we must live close to one another if we're getting hit with the same storm on the same day.

    Lower NY area... just a hop, skip and a jump away from the city. Did you guys get hit with all the ice yesterday morning? I did a 360 in my car on the way to work

    I think we're getting more tomorrow or tonight....

    Day 15

    Blasted tri's yesterday and did 30 minutes of HIIT cardio after my workout. I have a "clicking" noise in my left elbow during my overhead extensions and it was bugging me out WTF?! On a positive note... had my delicious cherry Protocol to down immediately after my last set!

    Also, I was wondering when should i take my second dose if I'm doing cardio after a workout? After lifting/before cardio or after cardio?

    we had snow turn to sleet turn to ice... went to the gym around noon, came back out to a nice sheet of ice over my car. roads were very dangerous.

    we're supposed to get whacked again on friday.

    i don't mind the days off from work, but i don't know what to do with myself while at home.

    are you locking out on the extensions?

    usually when i have the same schedule, i wait until after all is said and done before having my protocol. i've recently read an article (trying to re-locate it now) citing leucine's continued impact on protein synthesis if taken within 60 mins. of post-training/post-cardio.

    give it a try before/during/after your cardio and see which you prefer.

    Yeah... the buzz around work is friday snow Probably wont be enough to keep me out of work but enough to make the trip in/out a pain in the butt.

    Am I locking out? Sometimes. Should I not be at all? I think I'm maybe bringing the weight too low too. I'll bring it down till my forearm is about perpendicular from my upper arm.

    Damn, 60 min huh? I'll play with the dose timing on cardio days and see what I like best. I'm sure a precardio dose would be nice for endurance purposes. I'm going to try that first I think and have my post workout shake right after the cardio.

    when doing skullies, i bring the bar back just to my hairline and extend w/o locking my elbows to keep the tension on the triceps.

    sounds good... remember, too, that everyone has their own timing with this category of supplements.

    you could also split up the serving... 1 scoop PWO, 1 scoop post-cardio; 1 scoop PWO, 1 scoop during cardio; etc...

    Oooo never thought to split the dose in two. Good thinking.

    Day 16

    Had a good bicep workout performance wise ( weights and reps were all on point) but I'm feeling a little flat since the reduction in calories so I might bump them back up by 100-150 or so. On the bright side, weighed myself yesterday morning before eating and I'm currently down 10lbs with no loss of strength!
