    Day 36: 8/2 Quads

    1 Scoop ModernBCAA
    1 Scoop Maximize V2
    1 cap AnaBeta

    Squats
    135 x 10
    225 x 10
    315 x 10
    365 x 5
    405 x 2
    335 x 10
    355 x 8

    Leg Press / Calf Press
    540 x 10
    630 x 10
    720 x 10
    810 x 5
    900 x 3 (Rest Pause x 2)


    Fun leg day, really hurt LOL! Squats continue to get stronger and make progress. 405 wasn't bad, got plenty deep this time, hopefully will increse reps next week. 335 x 10 and 355 x 8 were both PR's for me, so good progress there as well. I'm going to keep pushing the weight as long as I can get 8-10 reps and stay in that general range for now.

    I had a really rough time on the leg press at 900lbs, on the rest pause I almost didn't get the 2nd rep, I was close to bailing on it. Pushed through though, glad I got it! Some day I'm going to have to do leg press before squats since I am totally burnt out by the time I get to leg press...

    Still doing great, and making awesome progress!

    awesome progress and strong quads

    question on the n2 shampoo...have you used it and since your 31 do you have a widows peak? if so do you think it has helped?

    which recoverpro flavor are you using and how often?

    Haven't used the shampoo, no widows peak, but wife says the hair is getting a little thin so I'm going to try it at some point. I do like coffee scents.

    RecoverPro flavor is raspberry and I LOVE it!!! I use 2 scoops around 9am and 11am for intermittent fasting. Taste is great and value can't be beat!

    Yeah, while I can't quantify it, I just feel like spreading it out gives me better results. I haven't noticed much greater effect taking 2-3 caps at one time, actually feels better 1 cap at a time just more spread out. I tend to take 2 caps with my fast break meal, but I think I may try breaking that dose up as well. I'm at 6 caps right now, so I get a pretty even dose:

    1 6AM preworkout (with BCAA)
    2 12PM Fast break (may move 1 cap to 9/10AM with BCAA)
    1 3PM snack
    1 6PM Dinner
    1 11PM Pre-bed (with BCAA)

    I had a GREAT pump in my arms, felt really solid after the workout, very swollen. Back is feeling good too, I had a good contraction feeling on all the rows and pull downs. Lats were flaring nicely on the pullups, no flying squirrel yet, but good enough for me.

    I got some SyntheSize and I was going to use that for my AM BCAA in place of RecoverPro for the time being. I'll still be using RecoverPro for my 11AM BCAAs. I want to see if SyntheSize will do more for me than RecoverPro. I have no complaints with RecoverPro, it's doing it's job really well, I just like to experiment!

    I just saw that too! I'd like to be a little bigger than that wrestler though...

    I'd estimate 1/3 to 1/4 left. I may add a 3rd and throw in Natadrol for a natural stack...

    I will be running with Prime, Ostarine and Creatine Nitrate so I will hold at 4 ed as I only have the one bottle. Oh and I might add DAA and Glycobol still mulling it over.

    Milas, when I come to America I am going to hunt you down with a crossbow.

    I switched to Raspberry flavour RecoverPro thinking "there is no way they can be sickly, he couldn't even understand why I would think this". I opened the tub and was greeted with an extremely strong smell and the taste of it, well there is only one word to describe it, sickly! You must have a sweet tooth to tolerate this lol.

    Lemon for the win!

    LOL, I DO have a sweet tooth, lots of 'em actually! My biggest weakness is dessert! Sorry, I didn't know "sickly" in Queen's English meant "sweet." They don't tell you that on Coronation Street or Monty Python!

    Tell you what, I'll buy the tub of Raspberry off of you if you pay shipping!

    Seriously though, sorry it's not to your liking. It's not just me giving it rave reviews though, so spread the blame! Even Rosie says it's her staple BCAA! Perhaps mixing the raspberry and lemonade together (or add it to your tea )? I like to dilute mine in a liter of water, if that helps.

    I'll be on the lookout for a chap with a monocle, tophat, cup of tea and a crossbow from now on! YIKES!

    I did wonder if my threat was a bit strong, then I tasted it again and decided it was justified.

    I will mix it with my earl grey tea, maybe I should stack it with a scone as well.

    Next time I take flavour advice I am going to take it from someone who spells 'flavour' with a 'u' and that way I know our adjectives have the same meaning!

    Most things, oh I don't respond well to Creatine...got nothing from Deisel products... Tribulas Terr. I don't do well with at all. I just stick to the stuff that works for me. Cost me some cash to find that out though. Prime really pumps my strength but I have to eat boatloads of food to get gains from it. It's really better for recomp for me.

    Yes, you should probably take flavour advice from chaps that eat bangers and mash regularly, not a Yank like me with unrefined tastue.

    Have you tried creatine nitrate before? I don't respond well to any other form (I've tried just about every kind), but the Nitrate seems to work wonders! I never tried Diesel, I had thought about it with all the rave reviews, but just couldn't make the mental connection to how the ingredients would produce results (placebo?). Tribulus is only good for libido, so I don't use any of those products either (married with a hyperactive child, no need for a libido anymore). I've tried Prime with the 69 protocol, and it did nothing for me.

    Very little outside of PH/DS seems to give me gains (ceteris parabis), food is the main determinant for my gains (oats in particular!). Whether I'm using something or not, if I manipulate my calories and macros, that makes 90% of the difference IMO. AnaBeta seems a bit better though, a little closer to PH/DS level with gains coming more readily.

    Nitrate does pump me up it's a decent intra product for me.

    The only place I really noticed that was on leg days. I would get painful, and I mean painfully leg pumps. Never could get a get chest or back pump though. I do better there with Ancient Strength and some oats in my pre shake. Cell shock pumped me up like nuts though!

    CN is great for a good pump. But Pump-O-Bol is even better especially when combined with two caps of AB preworkout. Pumps are almost painful (I love it). I know many think that the pump is worthless for building muscle (maybe) but it is great for motivation. With a good pump I leave the gym looking and feeling like a different person.

    I don't get a pump increase from agmatine or GPLC (unless I mega dose) and that’s makes GPLC expensive. I don't get much from glycerin or Glycergrow. But with Pump-O-Bol, WOW. And thus far the effect hasn't worn off. The two tabs of AB are probably contributing as well but the pump from two tabs of AB alone has only been mild so far.

    I think I went 4 pre and 4 post, 8 pre sounds good though... do you take it on off days, doesn't seem to be much point...

And thus far the effect hasn't worn off. The two tabs of AB are probably contributing as well but the pump from two tabs of AB alone has only been mild so far.
    I'm the exact same with Agmatine, GPLC, and Glycergrow. I may have to try Pump-Bol...

    I think that's the only reason I haven't tried Pump-Bol, Hemavol, Plasma Jet or any of the other pump products, I'm a cheap bastard and just want gains!
