    bigdavid gettin' STRONGER sleepin' LONGER with HGH-PRO - 3 month log (Sponsored)

    First I would like to give a HUGE thank you to AI sports for allowing me the opportunity to log their product HGHpro. For those of you who are just hearing about this product now these are some of the product claims:

    - Promote healthy HGH levels.
    - Promote deeper and more restful sleep
    - Increase appetite
    - Increase strength
    - Increase recovery
    - Promote clear skin
    - Support optimal acetyl-choline production
    - Control prolactin
    - Control somatostatin
    - Increase fat loss

    This is great for me for several reasons. First my sleep has always been horrible. From middle school till now I have always had a tough time getting to sleep and over the past few years I have started having a very hard time staying asleep. This is not only bad for building muscle and strength but it negatively affects every day function.

    My current workouts focus on strength increases and I do 3 heavy sets for the major compound lifts followed by supporting exercises. I am currently on the end of my 1st week of pct for my first cycle with h-drol so my supplements for the next month will include:

    HGH-pro
    nolva (20/20/10/10)
    DAA
    Erase
    activate xtreme
    preworkouts/intraworkouts
    fishoil/mulit/whey/etc (all the basics)
    a CRAP TON OF FOOD

    So my main goals for this log are improved sleep, faster recovery, and increased strength and muscle mass. I take melatonin every night and I will take that with the HGHpro but in a week or two will try to remove the melatonin to see how hghpro by itself can help my sleep.

    AI is EXTREMELY generous with samples packets so I have tried HGHpro for the past two nights and tonight I will start my 3 month supply. I was extremely surprised by the relaxation I felt after my first dose and I woke up a few hours earlier the next day feeling pretty darn refreshed (I tend to sleep for a very long time to make up for my lack of quality of sleep with quantity). I have not felt like that in a while so this is a good start. I have also tried ambien in the past so I am a very good judge of what products work for sleeping I have tried many OTC sleep aids.

    With that being said today is a rest day from the gym and tomorrow I am going to hit back and calves stay tuned!

    Didn't have much energy today because I was studying all day for a final I had a few hours ago and didn't get much time to eat before I went to the gym after my exam. Pushed through it with some stims and it ended up not being too bad.

    Back and calves

    Deadlifts
    135 x 6
    185 x 5
    225 x 5
    275 x 5
    315 x 5
    335 x 2

    DB rows
    55s x 8
    80s x 3
    110s x 10
    115s x 7
    115s x 7

    Lat pulldowns shoulder width grip
    100 x 10
    150 x 8
    180 x 8
    200 x 8
    200 x 6
    200 x 5

    DB shrugs
    85s x 12
    85s x 12
    85s x 12
    85s x 12

    Finished it off with 8 sets of seated calve raises reps around 15

    Had two finals the past two days so did not get much time to devote to sleep because of that. Have my last two finals in a week so will be able to get more sleep for the next few days .

    Felt the need to update that even though I only slept for 6 hours last night (had to wake up early to turn in some forms) I actually feel pretty darn good! Very surprised because when I wake up this early I am usually the first person to come back home and crawl right back in bed but I do not feel the need to do that. I guess I have to find other things to do with my time besides sleep all day! lol

    Thats some sick shoulder pressing!!

    BTW, are shoulder presses you do seated? Or standing? Because... we have so many names for that movement. Is it all just names?
    i.e. Over head press, military press, shoulder press....?

    Either way impressive bro. Those are some mean numbers.

    Thanks I do it seated IDK if I would be able to support my body with that much weight doing standing shoulder presses lol. And unlike chest pressed where I touch my chest...on shoulder presses I stop so my arm is just below 90 degrees..I have gotten better growth doing that as opposed to coming down and touching my shoulders. I feel so lame being off cycle I didnt realize how much strength it really gives you until you are off for more than a week lol

    Sorry, I've been crazy busy lately. More so than usual. Thanks for getting this going already.
    AI is EXTREMELY generous with samples packets so I have tried HGHpro for the past two nights and tonight I will start my 3 month supply. I was extremely surprised by the relaxation I felt after my first dose and I woke up a few hours earlier the next day feeling pretty darn refreshed (I tend to sleep for a very long time to make up for my lack of quality of sleep with quantity). I have not felt like that in a while so this is a good start. I have also tried ambien in the past so I am a very good judge of what products work for sleeping I have tried many OTC sleep aids.

    This looks very promising, so far.

    Congratulations on winning the three month supply of Hghpro, David. hghpro over a three month time helps a good bit and can help you keep your newfound muscle gains, provided everything else is in order-ie nutrition, training, and sleep. What prohormone(s) did you use and how long?

    Thanks for stopping by Yeah the sleep the past two nights have been great quality. Last night only slept 6.5 hrs again but opened my eyes and popped right out of bed feeling great.

    Yeah for sure! Sleep is always something I have lacked in terms of quality so I am looking forward to seeing where this can take me.

    Thank you! I feel very fortunate to have been given this logging opportunity. It was my first cycle so I ran CEL h-drol solo 50/75/75/75/75/75. I got some very good strength gains and I have not lost any strength so far in pct today is day 10 pct. Lost a few lbs but it seems to be gylcogen/water weight since my strength is still there.

    Is there any particular you did squats in that manner? That's a lot of sets, but some of the sets towards the middle were lower reps.

    Yeah basically what I have been doing for the past few months is 3 heavy sets for the major compound movements (those being my sets of 315, 315, and 335). The first bunch of sets is really just to warm up my legs and get my body used to holding the heavy weight on my back. I only do 2 - 3 reps for the last two "warm up" sets because that way I can prime my muscles for heavy weight but not risk any fatigue when I hit my real heavy sets. I have found if I just jump up the weight too fast my legs are not loose and I do not feel ready to squat with heavier weight.

    I like to do the same thing. I see so many doing tons of warmup sets with hi rep so they cannot GO FOR IT for the GROWTH sets. Watched this guy do that yesterday, warmed up with the bar for benching . . . 3 sets bar only. He had the nerve to ask if I needed a spot on my warmup sets of military press (135). Sorry buddy, I am pressing (155) more than you are benching (135) . . . GO AWAY. Yet he always gives people advice.

    Yeah gotta save all the juice for the heavy working sets! Been seeing very good results since I adopted this style of lifting a few months ago and as long as I keep going up I'm not gona change a thing.

    You should try hitting all the extensions, ham curls, and leg presses first and then try some lighter weight squats, really tears the legs up and shocks the muscle group!
    I only do this like...once in a great while cuz its torture lol

    Thanks bud
    The reason I love breaks so much is I can go to the gym whenever I want, eat, sleep..perfect time to maximize recovery! You should take some vacation time :P ... to workout more? lol
