Pump, Pump it UP..Gotti's Hemavol log

Page 2 of 3 First 123 Last

  1. Week 2 Review

    We all know this stuff tastes and mixes amazingly so no need to beat that into the ground again

    It's tough to review this after the horrible week I had, but as a logger it is my duty.

    I missed a workout in week 2 because of sickness and thanksgiving, but i felt like it was better for my body to get some extra rest

    Pumps: Pumps have gotten better as I've gone a long....drinking more water...but the best part is the pumps are noticeable but not overbearing to hinder the workout. I will continue to monitor the pumps and see if they get better and better. Drinking more water before and during workout will be my goal.

    Muscle Contraction: The muscle contraction is the best part....for me I feel like I can feel exactly what muscle is working and what part of the muscle is being targeted most. I like this because I feel it could end up helping with form for many ppl. I feel if I'm using muscles I dont' want to be using during a movement and such....very good for beginners imo.

  2. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Chest: Incline DB bench 4 sets, last set was a drop set
    Flat bench 3 sets
    Peck Deck Fly 5 sets
    Cable Cross (low setting) 2 sets

    Tris: Weighted Dips 3 sets
    Backhead DB extension 3 sets
    Straight overhand Bar pushdown 3 sets
    Straight underhand bar pushdown 3 sets

    Good: The pumps were very good today, chest felt tight. Not that sick anymore, alittle conjested in the chest still but energy is back and I dont' feel worn down. Triceps felt pumped really well too, still this morning, they feel alittle pumped or sore but not the normal sore. Endurance was good yesterday...comparing that to last week I expected this.

    Bad: The really bad wasn't even about the product. During cardio when I started breaking a sweat, with the chest cold it felt like I was running in the cold, my lungs were killing....and I wasn't even running!

  3. Tuesday: Back/Bis

    Back: Weighted wide grip pull ups: 4 sets
    Weighted close grip pull up: 3 sets
    HS Iso Lat row: 4 sets
    Close grip cable row: 3 sets
    Deadlift: 4 sets

    Bis: BB curl 4 sets
    DB Incline hammer curl: 3 sets
    HS Preacher curl: 3 sets last set was drop set
    Cable curl as a burnout 1 set

    Good: Pumps were awesome, my upper back quickly blew up while doing pull ups. Felt good, until deadlifts, those lower back pumps kinda suck and hurt. Biceps also quickly blew up after BB curls, but the incline hammer curls were where this product really shined. But forarms looked like roadmaps, it reminded me of the pictures in the contest thread. Next week I'll have to remember to bring in my camera during the bicep workout and see if I could get a good picture.

    Bad: Nothing really bad to report here

    Notes: I've been drinking more water around the time of training and during training. Really not any more water than usual, just changed the timeing of the water intake, it seems to be really helping with the pumps.

  6. Thursday: Legs

    Legs: BB Squats 5 sets
    Donkey calve raise 4 sets
    Stiff Leg Cable Dead lift 3 sets
    Leg extension 3 sets
    Plate Loaded Hack Squat 3 sets

    Good: NO pump in my legs (is that a good thing), I didn't mind because usally after squatting I start walking funny. On this day I didn't feel pumps and didn't feel tired in the legs. Usually on leg days, my legs wear out before my body is tired, not today, my legs felt fresh throughout the whole workout and I still breathing heavy ready to go home. Calves however did blow up, it was a great feeling.

    Bad: NO pump in legs (is that a bad thing)? Some may consider it a bad thing...thats the only reason I have it listed. Other than that no bad things.

  8. Quad pumps can destroy my leg day! So I would day it's not really a bad thing. I'm glad you've been noticing a better pump on upper body days.. I was worried earlier on in the log when you weren't, lol.


  9. Saturday: Shoulders/Traps

    Shoulders: BB shoulder press 4 sets
    BB behind the head shoulder press 3 sets
    DB rear delt fly 3 sets
    DB Side fly 3 sets
    Cable high row 3 sets

    Traps: Reverse grip BB shrug 4 sets
    BB shrug 1 set to failure

    Good: Pumps were really good, my shoulders felt numb almost, energy and endurance was really good as well. Thats why I did more sets than I usually do. Weight was also flying around for me anyway, felt really light. Traps stayed pumped well after I stopped shrugging, the reverse shrugs someone showed me and suggested felt really good and I may start using them more.

    Bad: Nothing really bad, bad part was I had to leave the gym

  11. Week 3

    Pumps: Pumps seem to be getting better and better, I have yet to up my dosing which is good, only using the product on lifting day a bottle will last a good while.

    Endurance: I feel endurance is staying high on Hemavol, usually I end up breathing heavy and I can tell when it's time to stop the lifting for the day. This allows me to push further.

    PCT: PCT is almost done and should be wrapping up this week. I feel good and feel like I'm recovered, my scale is broke so I have no clue what my weight is but the mirror tells me that I haven't lost much if anything at all. Hemavol seems to help shape my muscles a little better during pct since I really feel I can target the exact part of the muscle that I wanted.

  13. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Chest: BB Incline Press 5 sets
    BB Flat Bench 3 sets
    Peck Deck Fly 6 sets

    Tris: EZ bar skull crusher into EZ bar close grip press 3 sets
    Rope extensions 3 sets
    underhand extension 3 sets

    Good: Chest pumps were good, especially felt it in my inner/upper chest area. Tricep pump was pretty good, but odd. My triceps would be pumped for about 5 minutes, then I would note that I had no pump...then the pump would come back strong again.

    Bad: My energy was alittle low because I didn't sleep well the night before. Therefore the weight wasn't where I would liked to have it been. Shouldn't be an excuse but I felt out out of it. The workout flew by as well, I don't know if I was taking longer rest periods or what but everytime I looked at the clock I was shocked that it was getting late and I wasn't completed with my workouts.

    Note: I went to bed an hour earlier last night to catch up. Got a good nights rest, but I still feel in a cloud this morning, hopefully I can snap out of it at some point today.

  14. Tuesday: Back/Bis

    Back: Wide grip weighted pull ups 4 sets
    Chest pad t bar row: 4 sets
    close grip pull downs: 3 sets
    close grip cable row: 3 sets
    deadlift: 4 sets

    Bi: BB curl 3 sets, last set was a drop set
    incline db hammer curl 3 sets
    double bi high cable curl 3 sets

    Good: Bicep pump was really good and kicked in almost instantly. On the other hand, the back pump was solid but didn't really kick in until right before deadlifts then within what felt like seconds my upper back felt like it ballooned out. Deadlift pumps were pretty painful and still hurt pretty bad this morning, but whatever, it's all in the game.

    Bad: I really wanted to get a picture of my forearm veins but I didn't get veiny like the week before even though the pump was solid. Back pumps were solid but the pain is bad haha.

    Today is the last day of PCT, I will keep up with my Hemavol and my log until the jug runs out or until Christmas, whatever comes first.....i need some time off from the gym, it's been longer than I thought since my last break

  16. Safe to say the pumps build over time.


  17. Thursday: Legs

    Legs: Squats 5 sets
    Donkey Calve Raises: 5 sets
    Standing single leg leg curls: 4 sets
    Leg extension: 4 sets
    Stiff leg cable deadlift: 3 sets


    Good: The way I felt was awesome, the pumps were awesome. Overall the workout was really good, my quads blew up with blood, My calves also blew up during the raises, they were also fuller all night long and even this morning when I was walking down the steps my calves felt slightly pumped. The weight seemed light so I went higher weight on the squats and less reps since I felt so good. Usually when I walk out of the gym my legs feel and knees buckle and feel like jello, yesterday my upper legs felt rock solid and even though I couldn't walk straight my legs felt solid.

    Bad: As I was breezing through my workout I felt like I could get a lot done. But then I got held up by a few goof balls asking for spots and crap....really delayed my training.

  18. Saturday: Shoulders/Traps

    Shoulders: BB shoulder press: 4 sets
    BB behind the neck press: 3 sets
    Rear Delt Fly: 3 sets
    Plate Loaded Side Raise: 3 sets
    Cable High Row: 3 sets

    Traps: BB Shrugs 3 sets
    Behind the back BB Shrug 2 sets

    Good: The workout was solid, my traps felt blown up almost instantly. The weight was on par with where it's been which was good.

    Bad: The weight was where it should have been but the pumps in the shoulders lacked. They weren't bad but they weren't near where they were the last 2 shoulder sessions. I also felt tired at the beginning of the workout which sucked but that went away as I started working.

  19. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Monday: Incline BB Press 5 sets
    Flat BB Press 3 sets
    Peck Deck Fly 5 sets
    Cable cross high setting 2 sets to exhaustion

    Tris: Weighted dips 3 sets
    DB behind head press 3 sets
    Rope extensions 3 sets
    Straight underhand pulldown 2 sets

    Good: Pumps in the chest were almost instant, maybe 2 sets and it was on full blast. I must have shrunk my t-shirt in the wash or something because it felt tight and then when I got the pump, I felt like I was going lose circulation. I was really able to feel exactly what part of my chest was being worked during each excercise. Tricep pump was also excellent and very fast.

    Bad: Tricep weight was alittle disapointing for me. Nothing to do with the product as I still got a pump. It just felt almost impossible to get as low as I wanted on my dips, I dunno what it was but I wasn't happy during my tricep work.

    Iso lat row 4 sets

    Deadlift 4 sets

    Bis: DB alt curl 3 sets
    Incline DB hammer curl 3 sets, last set was a drop set
    Double bi high cable curl 3 sets

    Good: Lower back got pumped and still feels pumped as a type this, can't sit or stand for too long at a time. Biceps pumped really good, felt like rocks and numb I guess would be the best way to describe them. The weights during training were good, not great but I think I've gone up on all my lifts yesterday from the previous week.

    Bad: Upper back didn't get all that pumped, usually have the pull ups I could almost feel my lats get tigher against my clothes. That didn't seem to happen during this workout.

    Notes: I say I think my weight went up because I stopped marking down my weights and rep numbers.

    i used to mark every set and every rep, but it became like ajob and i found myself always comparing workouts to the last workout and if i didn't beat numbers even if i felt dead after the workout that it wasn't a good workout.....it became more like a job than fun, and if i'm not enjoying something, then why do it right? so i threw out everything and got back to when i started and fell in love with training

  25. Wednesday: Cardio/Abs


    No product today and after having some cold days here in PA, yesterday was nice so I think the gym was alittle behind but it was abnormally hot in there. Had a nice sweat going on.

  26. Thursday: Legs

    Legs: Squats 3 sets
    Donkey Calve Raise 4 sets
    Standing one leg curl: 3 sets
    Leg extensions 4 sets
    Calve raises on leg press machine 4 sets

    Good: The pump in the leg again wasn't crazy but allowed me to go heavy throughout the workout. Calves blew up, kind of wish they stayed that size all the time but ya know....when I win the lottery I can get calve implants I suppose.

    Bad: Yesterday at some point I hurt my big toe, it wasnt even at the gym, it was before. The odd thing is it didn't hurt while I was raising on my toes for calves. It hurt more while doing squats and things. Even walking this morning hurts when I push off.

  27. Saturday: Shoulders/Traps

    Shoulders: BB shoulder press 3 sets
    behing head bb shoulder press 4 sets
    plate loaded side raise 3 sets
    real delt fly 3 sets
    high row 2 sets

    traps: plate loaded shrug machine 5 sets (different hand positions on each set)


    Good: Good pump in the shoulders especially after the side raises. They were tough but felt good when I was done with them. Looked fuller I thought later in the day. Could be the products help, could be from the increased calories and training but my upper body is looking full and healthy right now.

    Bad: Nothing to bad during the workout.

    Notes: Week review coming up, and going into this next week it will be last week on the product. It looks like I have enough to make it through 3 or 4 more workouts which works perfectly since I'm laying off the weights next week for rest and to prepare for the new year.

  29. Weekly Review

    I dont' know what week I'm on lol

    The pumps have remained solid, endurance has also been good....As I continue to use this product, i feel thicker and look thicker especially in my upper body....it could be from my extra calories but my calories haven't changed much since september so i'm thinking the hemavol has something to do with it

    i'm also really likeing how you could almost target the exact part of the muscle your looking to hit, for example last week during a set of incline bench, i felt like i was hitting my front delt's....so i had to realign my form....really helped prevent overworking other muscle groups and really hit the muscle i'm looking to target

  30. Monday: Chest/Tris

    Chest: Incline bench press 3 sets
    incline bench press 24 style 3 sets (i'll explain)
    incline bench press 1 set to failure
    peck deck fly 4 sets

    Tricep: Weighted dip 3 sets
    overhead triangle extension 4 sets
    underhand straight bar pull down 3 set

    Good: Pump in the chest was very pronounced, it hit very hard. I also felt like I looked like a boss in the mirror, my chest looked full. Triceps also pumped, alittle slower than chest but when it hit the pump was noticeable. Wish I had more time in the gym, but it got late way to quick for me.

    Bad: This stuff is a tease lol, I got home, ate and then got ready for a shower and by that time my chest had deflated. I went from feeling liek superman to disapointed that I wasn't that anymore.

    Notes: So I read an article about a guy who made a good point. He was talking about during a bulk, he likes trying different things, different diet plans and things, as long as he's getting his calories. Then I read an article about the 24 training (6 full reps, 6 slow reps, 6 reps from the top half way down, 6 reps from the bottom half way up). I figured I'd give it a try and it burned bad, obviously can't use the same weight, but after the slow reps your muscles started to burn, from the top half way down I felt like it hit my front delts which I didn't like but the bottom range was great. Chest felt strectched out the whole time the the burn went through my whole upper chest.
