Lower Body Hypertrophy Day
* Speed work: Squats
bar x20, 135x5(front), 225x3, Front squats: 175x3x5
* Leg Presses (plates / side)
4x8, 5x8, 5+25x12
* Lower Back Power Work: Deadlifts
135x5, 225x5, 315x8, 405x1 (raw)
* Fascia stretching Work: Leg Extensions
85x50, 70x50, 90x20 drop 75x10 drop 55x10 drop 40x20
* Fascia stretching Work: Seated hamstring curls
Deep stretching for quads, and hams for 10 minutes => still doing wonders for my recovery
Everything felt good today. Went easy on deads and after my 315 set I decided to just pull 405 raw to see how it felt, and it felt gud
Quads started cramping today when I was walking to campus despite my deep stretching. Had to pause twice to stretch on my walk up (got some weird looks, haha)
I think I have 3 days left (rough guess), but I will be sad to see this end. Seems that the results just keep getting better the longer you run it.

Alright forum bros
Been working on revising my report the past couple of days, hence my absence. Loss of sleep and lifting at irregular hours has caused a slight drop in my strength, but nothing too notable.
I have one more day left here . . .
Thursday Evening Chest, shoulders, tri's
* Flat dB press supersetted with light weight(7.5-10lbs) lateral raises
60x10, 70x5, 85x5, 100x5, 100x6, 100x6
* Close Grip Bench Press
135x8, 185x5, 195x4, 195x4, 135x5
* Seated Lateral Raises // SS // Decline skull crushers
30x10 // 70x10, 35x10 // 70x10, 35x10 // 70x10, 35x10 // 70x10
* Heavy Incline dB Flys
60x8, 60x8, 40x13 => burnt out
Notes: Wasn't planning on lifting, was a long day on campus. Got home and was like, f that of course Im lifting . . . downed a cap of anabeta with a scoop of SP max and hit it nicely.
Today, Legs (different day, different mood)
Lower Body Power Day
* Pressing Power Movement: Squats
3 sets of 3-5 reps: bar x25, 95x8 (front), 135x5 (front), 225x3, 325x3, 330x2, 315x3 => ugh,
* Assistance pressing movement: Parallel Box Back Squats (pause reps)
275x3, 265x5, 265x3 => found my problem area for sure
* Assistance pressing movement: Parallel Box Front Squats (pause reps)
95x8, 135x5, 175x5, 195x5, 225x5 => 225 was tough, dont think Ive ever done 5 reps with it (especially pause-and-go reps)
* Assistance extension movement: Leg extensions
85x50, 70x20 drop 55x20 drop 40x15 drop 30x15 => squeezed a the top for the last dropset
* Muscular Endurance Hams: Seated Leg Curls
70x60, 55x60 => owwwww
* Standing Calf Raises (Machine), slow reps with squeeze at top
165x20, 165x20, 130x20 => ouch
I wasn't happy with my squat strength today so I decided to change it up and try box squat pause reps. Definitely found my weak area and these will be a staple in my two leg days.
Recomp effects haven't changed much, still noticeable. The real strength test will be my bench tomorrow, as Ive PR'd every week on my 3 rep max. Shooting for 260x3 this week! (yes pansy weight )

Alright so scratch what I said yesterday about today being my last day; I found 4 more caps in my food bag
Power Chest and Shoulders
* Pressing Power Movement: Flat bench press
3 sets of 3-5 reps: bar x20, 105x15, 260x2, 245x3, 245x2.5
* Seated shoulder dB press:
60x10, 70x5, 75x5, 80x5
* Tricep Work: Incline Skull Crushers
70x10, 90x8, 100x8, 80x10
* Assistance Bench Press Movement: Flat Bench pause reps
135x8, 185x5, 185x5, 185x4 => went to failure on last set
* Seated dB lateral raises:
30x8, 35x8, 35x8, 35x8
* Straight bar tricep pushdowns:
70x10, 85x8, 70x10
* Face pulls with rope:
120x10, 130x10, 140x10, 150x10, 160x10
Tried warming up differently this week, and I dont think I responded well to the style. Still pushed up 260 twice which isnt bad but not where I wanted to be. The rest of my benching just felt weak after that (rightfully so after a max attempt)
Seated dB shoulder presses felt awesome today. I haven't done them in a couple months so it felt good to throw up 80s again.
All and all a good lifting day. Now I just need to finish up my report whenever my professor gets around to giving me his last set of revision recommendations

Oh, and I don't know why I haven't noted this before; but recovery time has definitely decreased.
I think I just took it for granted till it dawned on me today that my legs should be destroyed but they feel okay. Realized its been like that for a while, lol.

Alright, so I didnt get a chance to record my final review today, but I promise its coming.
Got my before and after pics up though
As you guys can see, bodyfat dropped fairly well and my strength has increased since starting anabeta. You could get the details yourself but I will sum up the important lifts and their deltas when I get the rest of my review up.
Was definitely awesome though. Will buy more when it is released.

Andrew's Final Review of PES Anabeta-01
I'll start with strength changes:
Flat Bench: 245x3 => 260x2
Deadlift: 425x1 => 455x1 +30lbs *
Squat: 325x3 => 325x3 maintained.
Auxiliary lifts increased as well.
* Previous 1 rep max on deadlift was 465x1 back in january
Before/After Measurements (flexed)
Arms(r/l): 15in / 15in
Calves(r/l): 15in / 14.5in
Thighs(r/l): 22in / 22.5/22in
Chest(chest, lats relaxed): 42in / 42in
Forearms(r/l): 12.5in/12.75in / 12.75/12.5
I need to note that this was all done while cutting. If the pictures above show anything its a loss of body fat and a small increase in shoulder size. I expected to see more of a loss especially on my legs, but I was pleasantly surprised by this.
INTENSE workouts: I compared what I did today to what I did last week and it was completely different. My overall mood and strength was definitely worse off today. Kind of ticked about it, haha
Strength gains on a calorie deficit: Yup, this one is a big one. My weight dropped from ~174 when I started to 169 and some of lifts increased in weight. Others stayed the same, yeah, but some did increase. That alone should illustrate the anabolic properties on its own.
Hungry was bad in the beginning, but I just got used to it.
Recomposition: While Im sure this product did something with my body composition, diet dictates it more than anything. Needless to say, I did lose bodyfat and maintained (/increased) strength.
This might sound childish, but the only thing that bugs me is that I can't get more of it. Nothing worse than being in contest prep and seeing your strength start to drop. I felt it today and just wish I had more to hold off those losses for another month.
Well, that and the smell wasn't too great => obviously not much of a concern.
Obviously I would recommend this. I can only imagine the gains I could've had if I took this bulking. Hoping I have the chance to pick up some for that purpose.
One last note, if (when) I do run this again, I'll be picking up two bottles, as I didn't really notice effects until the end of week 2 beginning of week 3. Others did respond differently though, so this is probably just my body. Regardless I thought I would throw it out there.
Big thanks to natty for sending out a bottle for me to run, also thanks to everyone that contributed to the thread. This was for you guys so I hope you learned something.
