Nice review and mean workouts.
I'm looking into the main lifts supports. E.g the accessory movements. I know i shouldn't do too much but too little wont get me moving on my main lifts.
Oh what to do....RecoverBro ELITE
09-01-2011, 05:16 PM
Thanks man. The accessory exercises never seem to beat me up to bad. Its the main lift that crushes me. I have noticed my tris have gotten a lot bigger hitting them more. I think I need to hit shoulders more. they may be my weakness. Find your weakness and hit them as your accessory movements plus triceps and hammys!

Since I have reduced the intensity a touch I noticed im feeling great. It may be that Im peaking because of it. This is good to know for later. So after a few weeks of what I have been doing I will pick up the intensity again and see the out come on that mini cycle. Had DE Lower and felt very powerful. Using the foam roller preworkout has done wonders for my hips. I still am tight but loosen up quicker and feel a lot better. So far nothing has changed since switching to Form x. DE Lower
Speed Box squats-14 in box-grn bands double wrapped on db's-275-12x2
Speed dead-135 blk bands-10x1 felt so explosive and powerful on these it was awesome! last 3 stretched the bands out more for more tension
Yoga ball over head sit ups-10lbs-10,10,8
Had to lift early today. still felt great. got up made eggs and sausage and crushed this workout. Still feeling strong, full, and motivated! Im sore but not over sore.
09-03-2011, 05:27 PM
Did a quick gorilla hitt workout on my bike today. Still nothing has changed since the switch. DE Upper tom then ME rack deads with bands on monday.
09-04-2011, 12:48 PM
Good day even though I had a few drinks with a buddy last night. Strength and explosiveness was really good today. I was up on a few exercises. DE upper
Speed bench-double banded purple-225-16x3
DB lying banded ext-green band-40's-8,8,6,5,3 was up a bunch of reps on this from the last time i did them!
banded over head db ext-blue-95-7,6,5
rope straight arm pd-100-8,8,7
Super set hurt bad. ME banded rack deads tomorrow should be fun looking forward to that! My buddy I havent seen In a while stated I looked like Ive leaned up and added mass so thats a good thing and good remark about the m1d black!

ME Upper today went well. My deadlift has to be stronger. Im hoping my squat has improved as well. I did Blk banded rack deads from just below my knee. My first set of just bands and the bar I lifted the 135 db's off the ground. I weighted them down and at the top it was harder than when I lifted the db's off. So I figured the top was around 300+ band tension. felt strong but noticed I was starting to wear down after my make shift belt squats. Had the red bands double wrapped to my belt and a weight between my legs. here is how it went
Conventional Band Rack Deads-135-10 no band, 225-8 no band, start band double banded blk band-bar-3 on third 135's came off ground
135-3, 225-3, 275-3, 315-1, 365-1, 385-1, 395-miss
wide stance Belt squats-red bands double banded each side-only bands-10 Red+55-12, R+65-12, R+75-12, R+95-12
REv Hypers-purple bands-10,10,8 Lower back and hammys were exploding on these
Lying machine sit ups-30-8,8,8
Over all a good lift. I was happy with the banded Rack deads. I have never done them before. I sure the top was over 300lbs of tension because of the difference between when the DB's came off the ground and when I weighted them down more. Im thinking In two weeks I will try for a pr on box squats and then in 3 weeks go for a dead pr.

I did a Hitt bike workout followed by cutting my grass as my workout yesterday. I have noticed strength is still good. I looks like some of the fullness has started to go away. Libido is still very high. recovery is really good right now. ever since I cut it back for a couple of weeks I have recovered great. Strength is still great.

I was doing 4 a day but I was reading the bottle and it said up to 6 a day so I was going to try that today 2 am 2 pre 2 night on workout days or at least ME days. So far today I have dosed 2 am 2 pre before my ME upper. I had good strength and endurance today on my workout. ME Upper:
double banded blue band-135-5, 185-5, 205-3, 225-3, 250-3, 275-2, 295-1 305-1, 315-1 pr up 25 lbs from my pause pr
-------this feels like at least 200+ at top
Wide Bench(index on ring)-385-3 +1 help, 355-5, 335-7
-----wanted more reps and was fatigued from the banded bench
Sled tri overhead rope ext-just sled-60 yards-60 reps
Seated Military press-135-10,10,8,7- up 5 reps from last week
Rev grip pull ups-25-8,8,7 up 2 reps
this workout took a little longer than I wanted due to prep time in the beginning. I wanted 2 different band tensions but couldnt get it how i wanted. Strength is up and continuing to go up. Again I have noticed that my fullness is going away but strength continues to climb up so the transition to form x has been smooth without any hiccups.
09-08-2011, 03:54 PM
My chest is the sorest its been in a while. But today did a bike hitt workout. doing another early lift tomorrow.
09-09-2011, 09:31 AM
So I took 6 on Wednesday and 4 yesterday. I will take 6 again today,sunday,monday. If I dont notice a difference by monday will go back to 4 a day. Wanted to see if this helps. I noticed my recovery is great right now. Chest is still a little sore but not bad. Crushed the workout today. DE Lower
Speed Box Squats-14 in-double wrapped on db's-blk-225-10x2 45 sec rest fist set was weird rest were great good explosion
sumo Speed Deads-295-blue-up 20 lbs-12x1 these were half and half. Felt like i needed more speed on some
wide stance Good mornings-225-3x8 tried to get as low as possible to help me get lower when doing them on ME day great glute and hammy activation
Pendallay(dont know how to spell) rows-225-3x8 hammys were wrecked but still got good pump in back
ball 3 way cruches-12,10,8
M1d black and form-x are ridiculous on the libido. Strength has continued to go up. I look leaner and weight is staying the same.
09-11-2011, 02:29 PM
DE upper today. good lift still feel strong and recovering great. Not as full but that is the only difference I have noticed since the switch over.
Double blue band speed bench-135-16x3 cg-6, med-5, reg-5
lying DB band ext from chest-grn-10's-15,15,15,15,12
Band rev grip pd-red-100-8,8,8,6
09-12-2011, 05:14 PM
I like the 6 pills for workout days. Im feeling really strong. Had max effort lower and really hit it hard. I am crushed right now. ME Lower:
Concentric squats(below parallel)-135-8, 185-5, 225-5, 275-3, 335-3, 385-3, 425-3, 475-3, 500-1, 525-1 pr, 550-miss broke it off the rack couldnt get it.
double banded zercher squats-225+double bl-5,5,5,5
hypers-100-10,8,6 i was really fatigued from the two prior exercises
CG pull ups-BW-10,8,7
purple band decline sit ups-4x8
First time doing concentric rack squats and I made sure i was below parallel. So the 525 was a pr for them. I do not know how they will correlate to my regular squat. I felt like they may help my dead more than squat but im interested to see how it will transfer over. Again strength is great still going up. really like the overall stack for strength. Since that is what I am always looking for im vbery happy with the results.

Looks like I have less than a week left on Form X. took body fat % and it shows me down a few % points. But i am also taking on myself so its give or take what it really is.
09-16-2011, 10:19 AM
Interesting. You gonna post after pics?Originally Posted by Mongo97
Are you feeling dry? Joints feeling okay on this ?
09-16-2011, 02:27 PM
no joint pains. The Form-x seems really similar to to old lg formadrol. It has work much better on strength than the other the older one. Do not feel dryer. Look a little leaner but even with some of the fullness leaving from the M1d Black I still look fuller than pre cycle. and yes when Im done will post up pics. trying to find out how to adjust them at normal size.
09-16-2011, 05:00 PM
DE Lower today. Felt good. Changed somethings up and shocked my muscles so that was good. Looking to max box squat or deads on monday so took it a little light today. I crushed my upper hammys and glutes the past week and they were still a tad sore. DE Lower:
Box squats-Blue bands double wrapped on DB-315-12x2 upped the weight. was explosive. need a little more speed here.
Conventional speed deads-grn bands-275-1 missed lockout, 225-4x1 missed 1 lockout others hard lockout, 185-6x1 Noticed Im way weaker conventional. Also its noticeably easier for me sumo but even more on the lockout.
floor GHR's-BW-10,8,8,5 each time i try to use less assistance
pendallay rows-225-10,8,8 up two blew my whole back up
3 way yoga ball crunch-bw-15 20lbs-10,8,7
09-18-2011, 06:04 PM
tomorrow will be my last day for this log. Will be posting pics sometime later in the week. Strength was still up as well as libido. Although libido has dropped a touch. Had DE upper today but still used good weight. De Upper:
Speed bench-double banded purple-235-16x3 up 10 lbs and speed still felt good
CG Floor Press-225-15, 315-7+1 assisted, 275-8,10 felt really strong here.
Seated hammer bar overhead ext banded-red-105-10,8,8,7 up 3 reps from last time
Rope PD-30-100 reps felt better with these than last time as well
Band front raise-red-10,10,8
Band 1 arm side raise-L&R-3x8 really burnt great pump
Standing alt bi's-60-2x8
I am maxing deads tomorrow and although your supposed to keep your bi's out of the exercise I feel they get some work. Didnt want to be hurting on them so stopped at 2 sets. I was pretty much spent after shoulders anyways because the banded raises are intense.

09-19-2011, 01:20 PM
good last day but not the best. I hit a pr (non hitch pr as my buddy reminded me) on deads. I was up on my assistant exercises. So strength is up and recovery is still good. My back and hamstrings got really tight yesterday and continued into todays lift. It felt like it pulled me out of good form on my deads. I was actually contemplating doing a deload week because of my back and hammys but wanted to go out with a solid workout.
Sumo deads-135-8, 225-5, 275-5, 335-3, 425-3, 427-1, 515-1, 565-1 (pr), 575-miss
Box front squats -narrow stance-12 inch box-225-4x8 first time this low good pump in quads and hips
cg pull ups-bw-10,10,8 up 5 reps from last week
Purple band decline sit ups-10,10,8,8 up 4 from last week
I will probably deload next week. Im looking to hit 1607 raw in december its going to be tight but I think i can hit that. Need to get my dead up to hit that though.
Form x review
Libido-8 good but not as good as m1d
Strength-10 non stop strength gain on the two products. This is the only aspect of form-x that i noticed over the old formadrol.
Recovery-8.5 really good better than m1d. but during workout was not as good
aggression/motivation-8- felt good in the gym and bedroom
Overall stack review-9 I gave it this because the main thing I was looking to gain out of this stack was strength and since I gave both products a 10 on strength I weighted that more than the rest!
Thanks again to LG for allowing me to run this stack I was really impressed
Here is a break down of how I feel a person 220+ should dose these m1d-8 a day 2 am 4 pre 2 pm off days 4 and 4 Form-x on days-2 am, 2 pre, 2 pm off - 2am 2 pm
09-28-2011, 08:29 AM
Im got the pictures im working on sizing them and finding time to get them posted. Strength is still going up even after a week off of form x. hit a pr on squat and felt like i had more. Great job on these products LG!
10-03-2011, 04:11 PM

Ok figured out how to resize my pics. These were taken on the last monday(after my carb up day) so I was a little bloated. Still i wasnt very concerned about body comp. But I have noticed my friday saturday body comp is completely different than monday due to the carb up. I was more concerned with my strength and i got a lot of strength from both m1d black and form x.
10-04-2011, 07:29 PM
Been out of town for a few days, but i just want to say thank you for all the hard work. I've been keeping tabs on the progress and you've done me proud haha. You're a big guy, and i'm glad 8 caps was still sufficient, just goes to show that M1-D Black is the real deal. I'm SUPER happy that FormX worked out so well. Honestly i was a tad concerned going in to it, but your results speak highly of the product. Strength gains were awesome the entire way.
Again, thank you for all the hard work... really appreciate it.
10-07-2011, 12:08 PM
thanks man. upping the dosage on the form x helped a lot. enjoyed the run. I loved the strength gains.
