AE and Licogenix....time to recomp (Sponsored)
- 03-14-2012, 08:15 AM
Workout went well this am.
alternating grip pullups (9 total sets) 3 underhand, 3 wide grip, 3 behind the neck
db rows (4 sets) 75lbs sets of 12 (my db's max at 75lbs)
hammer curls (5 sets) 45lbs sets of 8-10
seated incline (5 sets) 40lbs sets of 7-8
Will write down more of my thoughts in a little bit.

Ok, finally a little time to sit and give some thoughts.
Thus far, the most noticeable aspect has been a large increase in vascularity. I will weigh in tomorrow to check, but I have not noticed anything towards my recomp goals (still sooooo early).

I already have Erase Pro ready to go in 3 weeks. I am now tempted to try Licogenix in place to see what it's like. Hmmmmm.

ok a couple of quick things...
pants are fitting looser around the waist even though my weight was the same at 202lbs as of this am. Strength is right on, no increases or decreases, and vascularity is way up.
Here is this am upper chest
Incline BP (8 sets) sets at 225lbs rep range 8-12
Incline DB press (4 sets) 75lbs range of 10-12
Incline flys (4 sets) 60lbs sets at 8
The fact that the weight is the same and my vascularity is improving, tells me that there is a little less water and I am leaning out a tad

a few brief observations today:
- Does lico have diuretic properties? I began to notice it yesterday, but it was far more pronounced today. I work in a school where we run a block schedule (almost 90 minutes periods). I have to pee and the start and end of every block. Damn
- My temperature is definitely up. It was somewhat chilly this am (in the 40's) and I was still sweating. I am now in my office with the window open, as I am a sweaty pig.
So the thoughts to me are, somewhat thermogenic, diuretic, along with the joint and ai properties.
Very cool indeed

Here was the morning workout for shoulders. Altered things a little bit due to time constraints. Used a more giant set approach
BTB BB Shrugs (5 sets) 275lbs sets of 10
Side laterals (5 sets) 30lbs
Rear laterals (5 sets) 30lbs
These 3 exercises were in giant format. Meaning, each set was completed with no rest. Once that "set" was done, I gave myself 60 seconds and went again. Exhausting.
I also did my morning cardio for 40+ minutes
03-16-2012, 12:11 PM
What day are we on with lico now, what was your starting weight 202 still the same?
Have you noticed any drying effects like holding less water or is it to early?
03-16-2012, 12:21 PM
I started on Sunday, so this is day 6 for me. I wouldnt say drying per se, I have been a peeing machine
03-17-2012, 11:23 AM
going to be lifting shortly. changing the schedule a bit as I am having a daddy/daughter day of golfing this afternoon then dinner
Will update the log with my back/bi day
03-17-2012, 03:03 PM
Had a good early workout today, then got beaten at golf by my 9 year old
Rack pulls (5 sets) 2 sets 495lbs 3 reps per
T Bar Rows (5 sets) up to 4 45's 8 reps
DB Rows (5 sets) 75lbs sets of 10
BTN pull ups (4 sets) sets of 8-10
1-arm preacher bench (5 sets) 35-40lbs sets of 10
BB Curls (5 sets) sets at 105-115 8 per
Vascularity seems to get more pronounced by the day, which is obviously a great positive. Strength is status quo, will be checking weight tomorrow morning. Also, I did notice that even with my belt I was having trouble keeping my shorts up during mini golf. That must have been the reason I was so terrible
03-17-2012, 03:51 PM
no drying effect from the peeing then?
what was your starting weight?
So for now you would say your a tad leaner or perhaps to early days?
03-17-2012, 10:11 PM
I definitely believe I am leaner, but I also acknowledge that it is only 1 week in, so as long as I keep my diet in check over the coming weeks, I should be good. Also, I am noticing that my joints are feeling slightly better. Not nearly as achy. At 35, I have had many operations, all of which have taken a toll, and I am let with fairly severe arthritis in my shoulders and upper back/neck. I am not struggling with it at the moment, so I do not feel like an ancient at this point
I will say, that I have already started thinking about the following 4 weeks after this log. Let me get some thoughts on this
Licogenix, Titanium, Division 1, DAA caps
That would be a lot of fun I think
03-18-2012, 09:44 AM
normal early am cardio, no great change there. Weight this am was 201, again nothing too noticeable. Looking forward to another "big" chest day today
03-18-2012, 03:09 PM
Interesting workout today, as I became fixated on certain exercises and seemed to spend longer than I possible should have on them.
Floor Press (8 sets) 2 sets @ 275 3 reps
Incline BP (8 sets) 225lbs sets of 8 raised the incline from my last workout to hit the UC more
Flat flys (4 sets) 60lbs sets of 8
JM Press (10 sets) 2 sets at 250lbs 4 reps
1arm db extension (4 sets) 35-40lbs sets of 6-8
Tri's are pumped to hell, which is a great thing. I was surprised at how easy I moved 250 on JM Presses. Happy overall, also hit the treadmill again for a little more of a sweat.
Tomorrow is shoulders and I will see how my lower back is prior to deciding on legs

Mini, it's a tricep exercise with a close grip and a bb. Then you bring it toward your head in a similar manner to a skull crusher. It's a killer.
03-19-2012, 08:26 AM
Day 8 started off nicely. 40+ minutes on the treadmill at the highest incline.
Standing bb raises (8 sets) 225lbs sets of 12
*decided to go a little higher as I felt good. My lower back will certainly let me know later
BTN Press (5 sets) 135 sets of 12
Side and rear laterals (5 double sets) 35lbs sets of 8
had a good pump, vascularity is still quite prominent. Strength is also at status quo. Did not weigh in this am, want to wait a few days to see if there is more to the leaning out.

What are libido effects if any?
Just asking cause I've just read Erase Pro review on this forum and guy that logged it after 8 weeks - today in his review said that libido boost was incredible.
03-19-2012, 12:25 PM
Libido has been good, nothing out of the ordinary. However, that is one area I have always been a tad over the top. My poor wife

today was an off day, although I did some ab work and cardio.
I will say, the vascularity is quite impressive. I am just sitting here, and my forearms look like a road map. Very cool indeed
