    JWA254's 2011 Gym Cataclysm feat. AnaBeta, Endosurge, and just about everything else


    ARE YOU GUYS READY TO KILL IT?!

    This will be my first log here at AnabolicMinds and I wanted to make it a good one. First things first, let's get the supplement list out:

    Staples:
    Whey/Protein blends (NutraPro Natural, Syngex, and Gaspari Myofusion)
    Fish Oil (Krill TS)
    Multi Vitamin
    BCAAs (Xtend)
    FOOD!
    GEAR (Running a little low, hopefully I can restock before it goes away completly)

    The Goods:
    AnaBeta (3 bottles)
    Endosurge (I just started bottle 2 of 2)
    Alpha-T2 (1 bottle)
    Erase (Couple days into bottle 2 of 2)
    Pre Workouts: Mesomorph/LitUp/Adamantium

    Additionals:
    Glycergrow
    Yellow Gold (if needed)
    NeoVar (if needed)

    This will be my 2nd time running AnaBeta. The first time I logged it elsewhere and came out 5lbs heavier with little (if any) fat gain. Strength went up and it was an all around great experience. Below are pics of my results:







    in before "you pale boy." I'm working on that.

    After that run I did a short stint of Alpha-T2/combustion and stayed relatively the same weight but my abs became slightly more visible.


    Second history lesson, this use to be me about 4 years ago:



    Looking fat and sassy at 250lbs. I ended up dropping 80lbs down to 170lbs and since have been making my way back up the scale with more muscle.

    Current Stats:
    6'1ish
    195lbs
    12-13% body fat

    Any questions, post em up and I'll answer them. Also any advice, shoot it my way, as after all: I'm a growing boy.

    First day. I just had to drop in to say that I have forgotten how AnaBeta increases body temp. It's a muggy 70 degrees out and I'm sweating like a mad man. I've been out of the gym for about 1.5 hrs and even taken a cold shower to cool down but no go. I'll post workout and nutrition at the end of the day.

    Will be sure to post past few days tonight. I ended up spending the weekend with the lady friend so I never got back to posting.

    Day 1 (Friday):

    Nutrition
    2304 Calories
    36g Fat
    305.6g Carbs (33.4g Fiber)
    215.6g Protein

    I just realized there's around 100 calories missing if you added the macronutrients together and compared to the calorie count, but this comes from the low carb tortillas I've been using taken account of the fiber in the total calories.

    Training

    DB Bench
    8x90 7x90 7x90

    Squats
    8x225 8x265 5x295 5x315

    Lat Pulldown (Really want to get this up)
    3x8x140

    VBar Pulldowns (adjusting to a new system as I switched gyms)
    10x130 12x130 12x130

    EZ Curl Bar
    10x70 10x70 10x70

    Alt DB Curls
    12x35s 10x35s

    Shrug Machine (plate loaded, slow reps)
    3x12x270

    PecDec
    13x195 10x210 10x210

    I changed gyms recently and it's probably somewhat in my head but some of the weights feel heavier than my old gym. I was pushing 95s on DB Bench with 8 reps and now I can still get them up but 5 reps is where I drain out. My squat seems to still be in good shape though. I'm trying to figure out if I can actually deadlift in this gym as the last one had a zero tolerance policy. I want to start deadlifting as it's a vital part to any exercise regimen.

    Day 2(Saturday):

    Nutrition
    I tried to keep track best I could, but Friday night I went over to this chick's house to hang out with her for the night and following day. I'm more worried that I didn't hit my macros than whether I surpassed them. I have that I ate

    1790 Calories
    32.5g fats
    261g carbs (34g fiber)
    141g Protein

    Allow for some deviation there as we cooked pasta and I'm not 100% on the ounces.

    Day 3 (Sunday):

    Nutrition
    2514 Calories
    73.5g Fats
    266.6g Carbs (22g Fiber)
    211.8g Protein

    To give a better idea of how I usually eat, over the past 4 weeks my average has been 2623 calories (42% Carbs/31% Protein/27% Fats) with 36g of Fiber. I'm going to probably keep these ratios the same (shooting for 40/30/30) but the carb intake may go up as I had great success with that last AnaBeta run.

    How's your Week 1 game looking? I'm 40pts up and he only has a player left to play so I'm 99% confident I'm going away with a win this week.

    Thanks for subbing and I'll be on the lookout for your's so I can return the favor.

    Best of luck! Do you have any idea how they're shipping to whoever wins? I realize it's a ways off but I was trying to fathom how they'd ship 50lbs of protein. I'm assuming it would be done in increments of 10lb bags.

    I really have no idea. 10lb bags would probably be the most compact way to do it. 10 5-lb tubs sounds like an enormous hastle...but who knows...as long as its coming my way, lol

    Day 4 (Monday):

    Nutrition
    3773 Calories
    52.1g Fat
    524g Carbs (71g Fiber)
    320g Protein

    Training

    DB Bench
    8x90 8x90 8x90

    Squats
    8x225 4x275 8x275 12x225

    Lat Pulldown
    8x135 8x140 8x140 10x140

    VBar Pulldowns
    12x130 15x130 12x140

    1 Arm Cable Curls
    8x60 10x50 10x50

    Upright Rows
    3x15x70

    PecDec
    10x195 3x8x210

    I thought I had put 2 10s on the bar when I went to do my second set of squats and when I lifted off I thought to myself 'wow 245 is feeling a heavy today.' I racked it to figure what was up and sure enough I had put 2 25s on instead. I weighed in at 196 off fresh off the weekend. Seeing as I usually weigh the most on Mondays, this is where I'll be weighing in weekly.

    Day 5 (Tuesday)

    Nutrition
    2706 Calories
    41.5g Fats
    343.3g Carbs (44g Fiber)
    253.4g Protein

    Ate a little higher than I had planned (I'm trying to eat less on off days and more on workout days) but it'll all work out. Tomorrow morning is another workout and I'm hoping to kill it.

    AnaBeta seems to have been kicking in already, I've been feeling it with endurance and nutrient partitioning. My part time job involves a ton of manual labor so the endurance boosts help not only in the gym but there as well.

    Other comments:
    Alpha-T2 and Erase both seem to be doing their part as well. I'm still waking up dry and sweating like a pig in the gym (alphat2+anabeta)
    Endosurge is still treating me nicely and the lady friend seems to like it from what I can make of this weekend.
    Banana Myofusion is probably the tastiest stuff under the sun.
    NutraPro's Natural Cinnamon Bun is great, but has a little too much cinnamon. Sad to see they have discontinued that line though.
    VPX Syngex Vanilla is also top-tier in terms of taste.

    Day 6 (Wednesday):

    Nutrition
    4887 Calories
    96.1g Fat
    637.5g Carbs (61.4g Fiber)
    360g Protein

    Training

    DB Bench
    9x90 6x95s 6x95s 5x95s

    Squats
    8x225 12x245 12x250

    DB Shrug
    3x20x75s

    PecDec
    12x195

    Gym was packed this day. I couldn't get on any machines and when I somehow managed to find a free one (pec dec) I cranked out one set and went to get water. I came back, it was taken with a little rotation of army folk. I was already running later than I had planned due to the busyness so I just left.

    Day 7 (Thursday)

    Nutrition
    2723 Calories
    72.6g Fats
    280.7g Carbs (37.7g Fiber)
    241.4g Protein

    Not a bad day hunger wise. This probably had more to do with I was busy from 9 to 7 at work (I move stuff/do labor jobs/haul away junk. See: http://www.collegehunkshaulingjunk.com/). Yes, it's a comical name/part of the reason I took the job.

    Day 8 (Friday):

    Nutrition
    3479 Calories
    36.7g Fat
    511.5g Carbs (60g Fiber)
    268.8g Protein

    Training

    DB Bench
    3x8x90s 7x95s (last rep was a tough one)

    Squats
    12x225 2x12x245 12x255

    Lat
    3x8x140 (extremely easy today. I'm going to bump the weight next go around)

    SuperSet (Decided to have some fun )
    1 Arm Cable Curls
    12x60 12x60 10x60>10x40(Dropset)
    VBar Pulldown
    12x130 12x140 12x140>12x100(Dropset)

    Shrug
    20x270 20x270 15x270>15x180(Dropset)


    Capped off the week with a fun workout. The pump was absolutely ridiculous from Anabeta, mesomorph. Not to mention I had thrown a little glyergrow into the mix that morning. If I didn't have to rush back to print out my paper before class I would have stayed a little longer because I was absolutely feeling it today. Veins were bulging out and I was getting hella-stares. feelsgoodman.jpg

    Man I took Ana Beta PCT and it kept strength up and muscle pretty good even on low carb.

    Now i'm on EndoSurge and its amazing for Libido and seems to make me more vascular. Nutrient partitioning on AnaBeta was good I feel, and I am almost certain running these stacked would be NUTS!

    Cant wait for more results.

    I'll be updating the weekend and Monday through Today, later this evening. I'm a little sick right now. I woke up Tuesday feeling like I got hit by a train and was running a fever. I rested all day and today I feel slightly better so I decided to skip the morning gym session . More detail later. Hope everyone else is killing it today.

    Okay, just for the sake of not making an absurdly long post, I will be summarizing the week.

    I woke up Tuesday feeling ill (flu like symptoms) and started dosing meds. Wednesday, I no longer felt bodily sore but my head was still in a funk and my sinuses began acting up (it's been cold one day, hot the next, wet and muggy, etc etc). I took it easy Wednesday and Thursday in an attempt to go to the gym Friday. I tried to work out Friday, and after 2 sets of [light] squats and db bench, I called it quits. Strength was stable but I felt like poo.

    My nutrition was kept solid throughout the week though as I averaged:

    2,822 Calories
    74g Fat
    315.3g Carbs (45.9g Fiber)
    234.6g Protein

    Monday, the train will be back on the track and I can get to putting AnaBeta to great use.

Wednesday, I no longer felt bodily sore but my head was still in a funk and my sinuses began acting up (it's been cold one day, hot the next, wet and muggy, etc etc). I took it easy Wednesday and Thursday in an attempt to go to the gym Friday. I tried to work out Friday, and after 2 sets of [light] squats and db bench, I called it quits. Strength was stable but I felt like poo.

    My nutrition was kept solid throughout the week though as I averaged:

    2,822 Calories
    74g Fat
    315.3g Carbs (45.9g Fiber)
    234.6g Protein

    Monday, the train will be back on the track and I can get to putting AnaBeta to great use.
    Just rest it up bud, make sure your getting those good nutrients and water and hit it hard once you feel better!

    Being sick or having time off training is no fun. Hope you can get back in and kill it again next week!

    Small update:

    Hit the gym big this morning. Felt great. I weighed 194.4lbs today, which is a loss of 1.6lbs since two weeks ago when I weighed in but I'm not so worried about physical weight loss. What matters to me most is how I look in the mirror and my strength (which is seeming to be up). I'll post nutrition and workout after classes today.

    Hope everyone has a great day and if you're hitting the gym up, kill it!

    Strong workout man. Full body is rough always. I find it hard to "get into it" as deep as if I were to just focus on back lets say. But recently I've been doing more full body compound only workouts. So I seem to be activating my core more to handle the bigger movements. Which seems to activate my other muscles.
    How do you get your self like "pumped" or "ready"? Like going from bench to squats? etc.?

    My schedule sometimes allows more than 3 workouts a week but being it's not consistent I figure it's best to stick with full body. I know typically people would say to cut out the isolation moves like curls but my ego just won't let me leave the gym until every muscle group is pumped . What I usually do is I bench > squat > bench > squat (repeat until I'm done with each respective exercise). I end up sweating a storm and it condenses my workout time.

    As far as "getting into it" goes, I do warm up with some light-medium weights on exercises (ex. 55s on DB Bench, 135 on Squats) but nothing too serious. I definitely agree with you though that the feeling isn't the same as splits.

    Also, what is the general opinion on Smolov's Stronglifts for Squats?

    I am not yet at the level of smolov's programming but if you can dedicate the mind power to get through that program... It WILL work. Oh also, I'd say you have to have maxed out your squats progression. Like for me I know I can squat 365. I've done it before but I got a string of injuries that made squatting almost impossible for months. Then I had to ease back in it... then blew my back deadlifting... I will probably run something VERY similar to Smolov's when I start to try to add more lean mass over the winter in December. Currently, I'm doing a isometric/EDT combo workout for a recomp.

    We shall see how all this works out

    The whole "jump sets" stuff works well I think. But I dont know how you can do more than 10 reps lol. I feel like my blood shifts from my legs then has to try and get to my chest soo fast that sometimes it just doesn't get there and either chest or my legs just deflate and cant even hold a contraction... hahaha. maybe I just need to up my cardio to get my cardiovascular system strong/faster

    Goes up to 125s IIRC. I'm planning on at least attempting the 100s by weeks end. There have been a few workouts in the past where I got 100s up 5x but they've been few and far between. It'd be awesome to lift the 100s like 90s.

    Brief update: Another great day in the gym. I'll post Nutrition from yesterday and today, along with my workout later.

    P.S. I put those 100s up a few times today on DB Bench

    I want to bust out more reps with the 100s. Some bish was pissing me off in there this morning. This lady told me not to throw my weights and I had to explain to her that I didn't throw them, just dropped them down. "They're 90-100lbs each, they're going to make noise." She just looked at me weird when I told her that.

    That 4000cal+ day sounds epic. Loving it.

    Haha yea. I think when I workout I look so intense that no one even wants to make eye contact with me. Well when I was at the gym. I train at home exclusively now. Hehhe.

    It was another epic day of eating. The hunger is running rampant. Macro ratios were still in check though. I'm going down to the lady friend's apartment this weekend, we'll see if she notices any change in size/muscle hardness.

    And now I realize how the previous sentence could be a giant innuendo. Ah well. I'm hoping to kill it in the gym tomorrow. I've got my eyes set on the 100s again, potentially going to try the 105s for fun.
