    Molecular Nutrition XFA Log


    Hey everyone, I know I'm pretty new to this site, but I have 2 bottles of X-Factor Advanced that I've decided to log. I actually started this log about 2 weeks ago so I will post all of those days prior to today. So here it goes!

    Beginning stats:

    Height: 6'1"

    Weight: 184lbs

    BF%: Never had it measured but i woudl say between 10%-12%

    Arms: 15.5"

    Chest: 43"

    Waist: 34.75"

    Thigh: 23"

    Calves: 15.1"



    Day 1

    Chest day today, took a full serving of 4 pills with my pre-workout meal of a powerbar and 2 pieces of wheat toast.

    Onto the workout, chest and tri's today, hit them very hard and feel like a got a great workout in. If the product works like i've heard, I should be pretty sore tomorrow due to the AA. We'll have to wait and see!

    Chest:

    Flat dumbell bench: 4x12,10,8,8 55lbs, 75lbs, 85lbs, 90lbs

    Incline dumbell bench: 4x10,8,8,8 55lbs, 55lbs, 65lbs, 70lbs

    Incline dumbell flyes: 3x8 45lbs, 45lbs, 55lbs

    Flat bench dumbell flyes: 3x8 45lbs (resist on way down)

    Triceps:

    Pullover press: 3x12,10,8 50lbs, 55lbs, 60lbs - learned this move from a Rich Gaspari workout and it works great for me!

    Overhead dumbell ext: 4x12 30lbs

    Tricep Kickback: 4x10 25lbs

    My triceps were pretty worn out after the chest lift, but still got a decent lift out of them. Will most likely run for 25-30 mins around 5 o clock and call it a day for working out.

    Will be back tomorrow with back and bi's.

    Day 4


    Alrighty so i woke up today and my right foot was just throbbing, turns out yesterday during my game when i landed funny and thought it was nothing and just kept playing must've been somethin.

    Feels like just a usual ankle sprain but no swelling so hopefully that goes away. Gonna hit shoudlers today instead of legs because i cant put much pressure on that foot.

    Takin the 4 now and hittin up shoulders in about an hour and a half

    Day 4


    Foot has started to feel a bit better throughout the morning so hopefully a full recover by tomorrow... I guess we will see!

    Took the 4 pills this morning and went for a shoulder workout.

    Went like this:

    5 min warm up on treadmill

    Seated barbell shoulder press 4x10-12 95, 105, 110, 115

    Standing dumbell side laterals 3x12 20, 20, 25

    Bent over dumbell laterals 3x12 25, 25, 25

    Finishing p90x shoulder move: (pretty much a combo of the last two) 1xfailure 20lbs

    shrugs: 3x12

    and various forearm excersizes and abs

    good lift today, was really looking forward to a leg lift, but hopefully can get that in tomorrow

    Day 5


    5th day on the XFA, so far I've noticed the increased soreness on the Chest and Tricep day(mostly in the chest) and the back and bicep day(mostly in biceps). Shoulders surprisingly feel alright today after a good lift with them yesterday. Anyway just took the 4 pills with a powerbar and some oats and plan on hittin the gym in about an hour and a half to crush legs!

    Will post after

    Day 5


    Really tore up the legs today! Don't plan on doing much tomorrow because i plan on being pretty sore.

    Alright so a little background on legs quick. Unfortunately when i started really getting into lifting about 3 years ago i neglected legs quite a bit and was focused a lot on the show muscle like any teenage kid with a big ego would do. About halfway into that so about a year and a half ago i realized how utterly stupid this was and started doing legs twice a week to catch up with them. So as of today my legs still are not up to par with the rest of my body but I'm doing all i can to level it out. Also for squats, I hurt my back pretty badly playing basketball freshman year so squatting was never an option and i was scared to ever step under the bar in fear of having it happen again, but about 2 months ago i finally got the balls to try it again and can finally do parallel squats again! So although my numbers for squats arent flashy im just getting back into it so give it time!

    Alrighty now that thats outta the way lets get to the lifts!

    Legs:

    Parallel Squats: 1x8 135 5x5 185 1x6 205

    Leg Press: 3x15,12,10 550? my machine says its thats the max it goes up to so i dunno lol

    Walking Lunges: 2x12,10 25's in each hand

    One leg ext: 3x12,12,10

    Leg Curls: 2x12,10

    Calves:

    Weighted toe raise: 4x12 225lbs

    Like i said not the most flashy numbers but a huge day for me. Very happy with my lifts and am not looking forward to the morning!!! I'll be taking the weekend off to do some ice fishin up north with the family and will be back monday! Ill take the pills 4 a day spread out with my meals.

    Day 8


    8th day on the pills. Decided to go legs again today, will most likely be doing legs twice a week if they feel good enough to.

    Good energy again today, havent had a problem with energy ever, but seem to be getting through my workouts easily.

    Onto the workout once again, i did legs today:

    Squats: 135x10, 205x6, 205x6, 205x6, 175x10

    Hack Squats: 3x8-12 175

    SL deadlifts: 3x10-12 45's in each hand

    Leg Press: 3x12 (whole machine)
    superset with
    Walking Lunges: 2x10-12 25's, 45's

    Leg Ext. 2x12
    superset with
    Leg curls: 2x12

    Weighted calf raises: 2x12 225lbs
    Seated calf raises: 2x12

    overall got a great burn in with the legs today, definitely can feel it. Will most likely be sore tomorrow and have basketball again on wednesday night so maybe some DOMS later this week, we'll have to see! Back and triceps tomorrow!

    Day 9


    Took the 4 pills this morning once again with a powerbar and a granola bar. Legs are noticeably more sore than after a normal leg lift so i know i hit them hard yesterday which is always a good feeling. Onto back and tri's today:

    Back:

    Pulldowns CG: 2x12,10
    WG: 2x12, 10

    Straight arm standing pulldowns: 3x12,10,8

    Bent over barbell rows: 3x10

    Seated cable rows: 2x12

    Pullup bar broke so was unable to do those but should be getting one this week.

    Tri's:

    CG Bench: 3x15,12,10 135, 155, 165

    Pullover press: 3x12,12,10

    Overhead Tri ext.: 2x12

    Got a good burn in today, lots of reps so not as much weight except for the CG bench. Tri's felt good and had a decent pump in my back so overall a good lift today, will do abs later today probably but had to cut my workout a bit short due to a job interview!

    Takin the day off tomorrow besides my basketball game at 8 and will be back on thursday and most likely hit shoulders.

    Also, I have been very interested in starting up a HST routine. Seems to have backed clinical studies on the results so anyone have any advice on this?

    Day 10


    10th day on XFA. Did some chest today because i had a friend over to help me spot. Good day overall, got a great pump in my chest today.

    Here was my lifts:

    Barbell bench: 135x15, 185x5, 225x5, 250x5

    DB flat bench: 55x12, 65x12, 85x10, 100x5

    barbell incline bench: 135x12, 155x12, 175x8

    Incline flyes: 2x8

    Chest felt very worn after this so i decided to skip my dumbell flyes. Very happy with the lift today, and because today was supposed to be my off day, ill either take tomorrow off or do yoga.

    Week 9 - Strategic Deconditioning (Rest Week)

    Weeks 10+

    From here you can start the cycle over again. It would also be a good idea to change some of the exercises. For example, switch Dumbbell Curls with Reverse Curls.

    Day 11


    Day 11 was yesterday and i really felt like i needed to get a lift in. Just did some biceps and forearms so it wasn't too taxing on my system and so I could still get a back and maybe some legs in today. Here were my lifts yesterday:


    EZ bar standing curls: 4x8-12

    EZ bar preacher curls: 2x10

    Standing hammer curls: 3x10-12

    Standing alternate dumbell curls: 2x8-12

    And some forearms.

    Day 12


    Got some back and a light shoulder lift in today! My shoulders are one of my most developed body parts and my back could use some work so i decided to make sure to hit the back an extra time this week and leave shoulders a little behind.

    Took the pills around 915 and lifted around 1045.

    Back and shoulders:

    Back:

    WG Pulldowns: 4x12,10,8,8 150, 160, 180, 190

    Seated V-Grip Rows: 4x12,10,8,8 Really squeezing out last ones

    One arm on bench rows: 3x10 50,60,70

    bent over barbell rows: 2x10

    Shoulders:

    Seated dumbell press: 3x12,10,8 50, 55, 65

    Standing side laterals: 3x12,10,10 20, 25, 30

    And various ab excersizes.

    Decent burn today and felt like a got a good back lift in. Not a whole lot of volume but definitely pleased with my lifts. Strength is no doubt up on pulldowns!

    As usual, taking the weekend off and will be back monday with the start of HST Training!!!

    Had a great weekend!!!! Packers are going to the superbowl!!!!!!! Ha but back to the fitness ...... I said i was going to start some HST this week, but i've decided not to because of the first two weeks being 15 rep sets. I feel this could possibly take away from my final X-Factor results in strength so I'm going to hold off on HST during this cycle and try and get as much mass and strength as possible off of this!

    Thumbs up Day 15


    Day 15 today, took the pills with a powerbar and some yogurt this morning and lifted about an hour after. Correction on my lifts today, i said chest and biceps when i really meant chest and triceps. Got a big lift in today, no spotter for barbell bench but still put up some good numbers! Decided to always do barbell bench until i hit my goal of 300! and still do dumbells for incline.

    As i said in an earlier post ill be postponing my HST training while on this cycle in order to increase strength and mass as much as possible while on the XFA.

    Alrighty onto the lifts:

    Chest:

    Barbell bench press: 135x12(warmup) 225x3(sort of warmup, just getting used to weight)
    and then onto the working sets: 250 5x3. As i said above no spotter so did not go as heavy as possible!

    Incline Dumbell bench: 1warmup 45x12, 2x8 75lbs

    Incline flyes: 3x8 45lbs

    Chest was pretty warn from all the bench sets so i ended it here. Good pump in the chest today.

    Triceps:

    Pullover press: 3x12,10,8 55, 65, 70

    Overhead tri ext.: 3x12,12,6 25,25, 45

    and various ab excersizes.

    Really seem to be increasing in strength and mass also seems to be coming as well. Cant wait to see the final results on this product! You guys may wanna put my before and after pics in your product descriptions on this site

    you gotta ask around for a spotter, safety first, plus you can train with more intensity.

    glad to hear it, I would hate to see an injury that could have been easily prevented though!

    Day 16


    Alrighty somewhat sore from hauling a 350lb piano out of my uncles basement last night with my brother, but made do.

    Took the pills around 145 today(Schedule got sort of messed up due to a job interview) and started lifting around 330. Back and Biceps today.

    Here is how the lift went:

    Back:

    WG Lat Pulldown: 4x12,10,8, 8

    CG pulldowns: 2x10

    Bent over BB rows: 3x12,8,8 135, 185, 185

    Single arm DB rows: 2x10 75lbs

    Bent over dumbell rows: 2x10 45lbs

    Biceps:

    EZ bar curls: 4x 12, 10, 8, 8 60, 70, 80, 85

    Concentration curls: 3xfailure (Resist all the way down as seen on Dorian Yates Blood and guts training).

    Great pump in my arms today, and vascularity is way up as i've mentioned before.

    Haven't noticed any side effects really from this product as of right now other than the increased soreness, but i was expecting that.

    Measured my arms today just to see if i had made any progress and i have put on a half inch to my arms in 16 days on this product!! Incredible. I'll do all my measurements and weight at the halfway point before i start my second bottle!

    sounds like a very well rounded fitness routine! It's always important to take days off of lifting.

    Thank you! When i first got started in lifting I would go 5 days a week after school until I was informed I was robbing myself of gains and the reason i was always tired and not getting good sleep was because of my overtraining! My buddy who told me this is actually a D1 college baseball player who was the Freshman of the year winner in the atlantic sun conference this year and also elected to the NCAA baseball all-star team. Future looks great for him!

    Day 18


    Back to legs today! Changed up my routine a bit, decided if im going to be doing legs around 2 times per week i should'nt do the same routine everytime. Not too much different but just different variables.

    anyway..... Took the pills around 10 this morning and was lifting at 11:15. Good pump in my legs today which was nice. Gotta love that.

    Lifts:

    Legs:

    Barbell Squat: (only for warm-up) like i said im changin it up. 2 setsx10 135lbs

    Split leg squat: 4x8-12

    Leg Press: 3x10

    SL deads: 3x8-10

    Leg ext: 3xfail resisting on way down

    Leg curls: 2x8

    Calves:

    Barbell toe raises: 2x15 225

    seated toe raise: 2xfail

    Like i said no huge changes but pretty much just changed up the normal squats with split legs and it really seemed to work. Legs are just worn right now.

    As for tomorrow, I really would like to see where i'm at strength-wise in benching so my buddies comin over and i'm going to test to see around where my 3RM is and will be able to make a pretty close assumption of my 1RM. Tomorrow is shoulder day anyway so its almost perfect. Ill be sure to post and let you guys know how that turns out.......Stay tuned!!!
