Lean Gains with USPlabs and PES

  1. Day 36
    I had a solid arm workout today despite getting about 5 hours sleep last night. I was pretty tired this morning so I had a couple scoops if Jack3d before hitting the gym. I'm running pretty low on it but I have various tubs of pwo's if I need them. Overall I had good progress with today's routine. However, one exercise that progression is slowing down with is close grip bench. I was able to match last week's performance but I was adding weight rapidly for a couple months prior. All other tricep exercises had good improvement. 10lbs and a rep were added to weighted dips and pushdowns. Bicep strength gains are starting to pick up as well. This was most noticeable with hammer and preacher curls. What was a struggle last week was done fairly easy and with great form. My wrist is getting better (still not 100%) and allowing me to push harder when training biceps. I'm somewhat "achy" from this week's workouts and might take tomorrow off. If I'm feeling refreshed in the morning I'll get in a good leg workout.

    I weighed 196.5lbs this morning so my weight is more or less unchanged since the last weigh in. I'm unsure if I've gotten any leaner over the last few days. I'll wait a few more before I try to make any real judgement. Now that I've been back to getting a full dose of Compound20 for a couple days hopefully my leaning ability is back to its full potential.

  2. Day 37
    I was still a little rundown this morning. I had nothing to do and wanted to kill some time before the Bruins game so I went to do some leg work. I approached today's workout differently than I normally do. I stayed in the 10-15 rep range with squats and leg press where I would usually do somewhere between 5 and 10. It was nice to switch things up a bit and I could really feel the burn with the increased reps. I kept leg extensions heavier and was able to add 15lbs to last weeks total. I also did some calf work with standing/seated raises and finished with 10 mins of abs.

    My joints have felt better overall dosing Erase Pro EOD. I feel its still a very beneficial way to use it and perfect for someone that is starting out with estrogen levels that aren't already elevated. I noticed today that my pee is darker than it has been. My guess is that with Compound20 back at its full dose I'm somewhat dehydrated. I'm not excessively thirsty but I was previously drinking around 2 gallons of water daily and have been slacking the last couple. I just picked up plenty of water so problem solved. I also have a slight increase in appetite today. Overall hunger has been elevated since about a week after starting the stack but some days are more noticeable than others.

  10. Day 38
    I'm getting some needed rest today and will get back to the gym tomorrow. My recover time has been good and is slightly improved as of late. My meeting with the new doctor and potential blood work was originally scheduled for tomorrow. However, I was forced to start over in my search for a doctor due to some unexpected changes that included my insurance. It will probably be about a month until my new insurance is active, so seeking any medical advice will be put on hold. As long as I don't get in a freak accident or need some kind of emergency care I'm fine with the transition period. I feel good (which is most important to me) and past issues continue to seem under control/improved so I'm in no rush to see anyone.

    My weight is still in the 196 range despite bumping my calories back up another 200-300 daily when returning to a full dose of Compound20. With my weight unchanged I hope this is an indication that I'm continuing to lean out. Over the next week or so I should have a better idea of how body composition is being affected. I think muscle fullness in my chest and shoulders is improving. My upper pecs are lacking and I've been putting more focus on correcting the imbalance for the last few months.

  13. Day 39
    Today's workout was great. I worked chest/triceps and had improvements with everything I did. I kept the weight the same on BB flat bench but was able to get an additional 2 reps and maintained them throughout 5 sets. BB incline bench was my biggest and most surprising improvement. I started by adding a couple reps on my first set. I then added 10lbs matching last weeks reps for 2 sets. I finished 20lbs heavier in comparison to last week's final set one rep short of where I was with the lighter weight. This was a good improvement in both strength and endurance. It felt great especially after a slight drop in performance last week. I also had a good showing with cable flyes, dips, and a few other tricep focused exercises.

    I decided to weigh myself this morning and was shocked to see 199.2lbs (+3lbs). I had to repeat the process several times to make sure it wasn't some kind of mistake. I actually weighed myself because I felt pretty lean this morning and was curious to see if I had dropped any weight. I'll be checking again tomorrow because its very odd for me to see such a fluctuation in a day's time. I always check my weight under the same conditions (first thing in the morning "post dump") and I rarely see anything +/- 1lb. If the gain (or any part of it) ends up sticking its more than welcomed because as far as I can tell none of it is in the form of fat. There hasn't been any variation in my diet besides taking my caloric intake back to where it was a week prior. I'm very intersted in seeing what the scale shows tomorrow.

    Thanks! I doubt all the weight will be there tomorrow. Either way I probably gained something and the strength increase can't be denied. The second month is definitely off to a good start. Since I still have some strength/size to regain hopefully the improvements continue at this pace (or better).

  16. Day 40
    The solid workouts continue. I didn't have much time to fit everything in but I changed things up slighty and worked both back and biceps. I compensated by lowering the weight a little, increasing the reps, and shortening the rest period on some of the exercises. I approached my leg day in a similar fashion last week and enjoyed the change of pace. I did my deadlifts in sets of 8-12 where I would normally keep it in the 5-8 rep range. I did the same for BB rows and curls. It was initially difficult to judge strength increases with changes in routine but I did the math (with an app) and it was up on all 3. I also got a pretty good back pump which doesn't happen to often. I kept the rep range the same with lat pulldowns, seated rows, and DB curls and had slight improvement with each of them. I finished up with back extensions per usual.

    My abnormal weight increase from yesterday turned out to be a fluke. I must have been holding some extra water or something which is odd considering the use of Erase Pro and Compound20. I was 197lbs (+1lb from a few days ago) this morning which is right in line with how I've been gaining throughout the length of the stack. This keeps me consistently adding a little less than a pound a week. I'm still holding off judgement of whether I'm continuing to drop body fat or not for a few days. I'll probably check my belly fat with my calipers soon although they aren't very reliable especially when I'm doing the readings myself. I do feel that I'm looking fairly lean and at the very least maintaining my current bf%. My hunger is up again today and this continues to happen every couple days. I'm noticing a few people increasing their Compound20 dosage to 3 caps 2x daily. I'm looking to see if they notice any advantage with this and would consider giving it a try if they do. For now I'm keeping all supplement dosing the same.

  17. Day 41
    I didn't get much sleep last night but I decided to hit the gym and work my shoulders this morning. I didn't have as much energy as I would have liked (should have used some Jack3d) but it was still a good workout. Strength wasn't threw the roof but it was there. I had slight improvements with each exercise. I added an extra rep to BB military press and maintained it through 4 of 5 sets. Weight and reps started the same with DB press and I was able to complete each working set without losing a rep. Last week I think I lost a rep on the last 2 sets. Improvements were had with upright rows and front/lateral raises as well.

    Not a whole lot to report on supplementation today. Dosing remains consistent and unchanged. My appetite is down a little from yesterday but is still up overall. I'll check my weight and try to gauge any changes in body composition in the next couple days.

  20. Day 42
    No gym today and it felt needed. The intensity of my workouts can take a toll on me and the aches and pains usually peak on Thursday (after 3 consecutive days in the gym). The day off should have me feeling refreshed and ready to go tomorrow.

    I think I might have dropped another small fraction of body fat percentage. I felt slightly leaner today than I have in the past week. I'm wondering if the few days at a minimal dose of Compound20 and the one day without it had slowed my previous leaning progress. It's just speculation but if it holds any truth it speaks to it's effectiveness. Either way both Erase Pro and Compound20 seem to be giving me the same advantage in physique enhancement as they were prior. Without the stack the weight I am gaining would normally present itself differently. I have also noticed that my caloric intake is not showing changes on the scale as fast as it would without the supplements. I believe what appears to be a decrease in body fat up to this point is the reason for this.

  21. Day 43
    The day off had me refreshed and I had a solid arm workout as a result. Weight and/or reps were increased on everything and endurance was high. I was most happy to see improvement with close grip bench. Progress had stalled as of late but I pushed through my heaviest set up 10lbs from last week. My previous hammer curl weight was a breeze and I went up 5lbs for my last 2 sets. The same thing happened with preacher curls. I also had an increase in strengh and reps with tricep pushdowns and overhead cable extensions. I finished off my arms by supersetting weighted/bodyweight dips and 21's. Before I left I threw in 3 quick sets of heavy cable crunches since I had some energy left.

    My weight remains at 197lbs (+5lbs overall). I didn't have the same lean feeling as yesterday but I'm not too worried about it. With my weight unchanged I don't see how I could've lost any progress in that department. I had some cake and ice cream last night (without changing my normal caloric intake) which could be messing with how I "feel" today. I usually have some type of dessert like this readily available but stay away from it for the most part. I'm still considering upping the Compound20 dose to 3 caps 2x daily and will probably come to a decision by Monday. At this point I'm leaning towards keeping things the same. I've had good success with it and Erase Pro at their current doses so I'm hesitant to make any changes. The saying, "if it ain't broke don't fix it" comes to mind but seeing a few other people doing it has me curious.

  22. Day 44
    Busy day today but I was able to squeeze in a shortened morning leg workout. I had to take my dog to get some shots at 9:30 so I was in the gym by 8am. I was running on about 5 hours sleep and didn't expect much in terms of performance but was pleasantly surprised. There were improvements with the minimal work I got done. I dropped leg press from the routine and extended squats for 6 sets. My two heaviest sets had an increase of 20lbs and a rep added to each. I didn't expect such progress but it felt great. My form wasn't perfect on the last rep but it was decent. I followed that up with 4 sets of leg extensions where my max weight was up 25lbs. I have a feeling that omitting leg press between the two might have had something to do with it. Either way my leg strength has been taking off as of late. I finished my workout with standing and seated calf raises as it was all I had time for.

    My strength was great this past week. I believe I had the biggest increases overall since starting the stack. I'm hoping this trend continues because it has me in a great mood both in and out of the gym. I'm going to spend tonight and tomorrow resting up. The lack of sleep along with the workout have left me pretty rundown at this point. I'll probably hop on the scale in the morning to check for any changes, although I'm not expecting much difference.

  23. -8 pounds and people are calling you superman?

    Hardcore Purus Labs {Rep}
    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  24. Increase of 20 lbs on sets? That is an incredible jump bro. Nice work!

    I've gained a little under 5lbs at this point. I doubt I'll end up reaching +8. I went up 2lbs right at the beginning but things have slowed down since and I don't want to overdue it with the calories. All the weight looks like its lean though and definition is up.
