  1. It is my own personal preference on raspberry flavoured supplements, most of which don't taste like raspberry!

    I thought BCAAs worked better with citrus flavours. The only nice ones I have tasted are citrus.

    I am more than happy to be proved wrong though.

  2. Day 19 and 20: off, at home just spending time with family. Got a 3mi run in on Day 20, boy it hurts my knees, joints! I am so out of shape for cardio, LOL!

  3. My initial review of the RecoverPro Raspberry sample was not exactly to my liking, but after trying it dilluted to my normal level I really like it, and it is my staple BCAA. Better than Xtend IMO. Worth a shot...

    I actually prefer more fruity flavors with BCAA, like Xtend Watermelon or BC+EAA Kiwi-Strawberry. I didn't like BodyMortar Lemonade or Purple Wraath Lemon, too tart and hard to get down IMO. Taste is subjective though...

  4. Day 21: 7/18 Chest/Tricep

    Weighted Dips
    BW x 15
    +25 x 15
    +45 x 15
    +70 x 12
    +90 x 10
    +115 x 5
    +90 x 5

    Cable Crossovers
    25 x 12
    27.5 x 12
    30 x 12
    30 x 12
    35 x 12

    Pushups (decline/flat/incline) - superset with cable crossovers
    10 each (5 sets)

    Low Cable Cross Overs
    25 x 12
    25 x 12
    27.5 x 12
    27.5 x 12
    30 x 12

    Tricep Rope Pushdown
    55 x 15 (5 sets)

    Tricep Reverse Grip Pushdown
    25 x 12 (5 sets)

    Overhead Tricep V-Bar Cable Extension
    50 x 12
    52.5 x 12
    55 x 12
    57.5 x 12
    60 x 12


    Well, I tried flat bench and decline bench, but both tweaked my shoulder something awful. Very painful at the bottom of the rep, so I punted on those. Dips were not a problem, and I enjoyed putting them first in the rotation where I was stronger. I hadn't done weighted dips for a while, so it was really nice to feel it. Push ups and cable cross overs were not a problem either. While my shoulder recovers, I'll be doing a lot of these!!! Any other suggestions for good chest exercises that don't impinge on shoulders?

    I'm almost to the bottom of bottle #1 for AnaBeta, so I'll take some updated pics and measurements when I crack open the new bottle. So far, I'm giving AnaBeta an A+ for a natural supplement that ACTUALLY DOES SOMETHING!!! It's nice to get a boost in strength and muscle mass from a natural product, let alone the types of gains I've gotten. Some highlights so far:

    Before --> After
    Squat 315 x 5 --> 315 x 10
    Deadlift 405 x 5 --> 405 x 8
    Bench 225 x 5 --> 225 x 8 (with a bum shoulder)

    And I expect these numbers to go up!

    I'll let the pics and measurements speak for themselves when updated...

    I have not tried the others you have mentioned to give any kind of comparison, but, Xtend is good stuff, I've yet to meet a flavor I didn't like!

  7. Have you tried neutral grip for dumbbell presses or bi-acromial grip for barbell presses? Easier on the shoulder in terms of medial rotation as well as increased ROM on dumbbell presses. Admittedly more of a tactic for preventing injuries rather than fixing them but worth a thought.

    I made the classic mistake of thinking you were referencing everything in kilograms, I was extremely impressed with your dips lol.

    I am a bit shy with increasing the weight on dips as I broke a colleague's belt (supposedly good quality) with only 40kg.

    The most I have worked up to was 3 reps with +70kg weight on a 4-0-1-0 tempo at 84kg bodyweight. In retrospect I should have attempted a 1RM with bodyweight at the end of my mesocycle just for giggles.

    Admittedly I didn't have a dodgy shoulder like you though lol.

    No need for caveats, +70kg for 3 reps is a lot! I really try to keep ego in check and don't compare myself to folks on here when it comes to lifting, it's all about personal objectives (there's always someone bigger/stronger). Yeah, it'd be fun to do +bw for a 1RM just to say you've done it! I don't know if I'll get there at my rate...

  13. Milas, my experience with WYKED was the same as yours. Definitely one of the better flavors out there. Nice smooth energy, not a RUSH of energy, just enough to be highly motivated. By a couple sets into the workout you are just full on with intensity and focus, but not too much. At 3 scoops I was really intense and was a little stronger than i prefer to stim myself. However for someone less sensitive to stims this would be fine at 3 scoops.

  14. I am really contemplating doing Dips as my main chest exercise for a month or so. I am not sure yet but definitely thinking of it. Would be awesome, and I have a belt now so it would be easier than sticking a 100 lb dumbbell between my legs and holding it there.

    Haha. As far as working out with a partners assistance goes it definitely isn't as sexy as donkey calf raises with girls on your back. It gave me the funniest image of you trying to be a koala though.

    I would swap my dips for your abs, getting strong and lean is a very different ball game so it is all relative.

    Appreciate the compliments though. It was only just over a year ago when I could barely walk and failed an 11kg deadlift through serious atrophy but that is another story. Keep up the good work. I will keep my eyes in here every so often just so you can't make digs at me lol.

    Yeah, solid pre-workout that tastes good.

    That's my plan of attack, do whatever chest exercises I can that won't mess with my shoulder. That pretty much leaves dips as the only one I can move real weight on!

    My abs are hiding for the summer... Oh, and my strength was crap when I had those abs! LOL!

    Sounds like you made an incredible recovery, keep it up! You're doing athletic modeling now? That's pretty cool!

    Definitely agree is. I've been mixing one scoop of Raspberry and one scoop of Lemon in about a liter of water and it is damn tasty. Not to mention I paid $40 for 2 big tubs of it thanks to a goof + AI Sports Nutrition's X-mas in July sale.

    Wow, leg day HURT today! I guess the run on Sunday took more out of my legs than I thought, I was still sore! Sheesh, I feel like a power lifter with my cardio levels! Regardless, I pushed through and made my legs scream!

    Highlight was hitting 315 x 10 for 2 sets and 335 x 8. The 365 seemed heavier than last week, don't know what's going on there other than legs being sore. Overall legs are drained, but I wish I could've done more. Next week I will punish those legs for not responding enough today!

    On a positive note, leg presses felt a bit easier, I think I'll get 810 for 8 or 10 reps next attempt, I probably could've gotten 1-2 more today, but I was already hurting. I'm hoping to get to 10 plates each side (900lbs, 20 plates) soon, and then start increasing reps. I've never done > 1,000lbs on leg press (for any real depth), so that will be great once I get there.

    I keep forgetting to take my AnaBeta with lunch, I end up taking it 30-60 minutes later, which is not ideal. It just slips my mind as I get wound up in some task at work. Hopefully it'll still work though!

    The lemon flavour is fine and very good value seeing as it works out to be the same cost per kilo as bulk 2:1:1 BCAAs here.

    Probably going to buy another tub. Waiting for the samples John kindly looked into sending me internationally. Does it include RecoverPro flavours?
    The sample kits do include both flavors of Maniac and RecoverPRO.

    I've been away for about a week...any chance for some bridge notes?

    Strength increasing steadily in Squat/Deadlift/Bench (despite jacked up shoulder), appetite and thirst in control, looking/feeling solid, RecoverPro tastes AWESOME and AnaBeta ROCKS!

    1st bottle AnaBeta almost gone, measurements and update pics this weekend.

    PES promised me a case of AnaBeta for free. AI Sports Nutrition offered me a sponsorship deal with a lifetime supply of RecoverPro.







    bdcc called me a bloody wanker, whatever that means...

    Good job bro, I have been following along as usual. This lean gains diet has me intriuged (spelling). Anyway, I am thinking of giving that a run down the road. Now more importantly, I have a bottle of Anebeta already amd I am going to get another. That will be my next cycle when its time..SJ

    Lean Gains seems alright, works better for some than others IMO. Worth a try.

    AnaBeta is great for a natty supplement, seems to be working very well for me!
