Intimidate: Dose 47
Erase Pro: Dose 39
PWO: 1/4# beef, 2 eggs, 1/2 can black beans, 2 scoops CRAZE, 10 pills Hemavol, 25mg Ephedrine Sulphate, black coffee.
No warmup today due to a very tight schedule at work...
SQUATS: 5x5 210#. These felt even better than last week. Good control, absolutely no pain, and all reps breaking parallel. Did notice that it took me a little longer to get the hips below the knees. Prolly because I did not get my PWO cardio in so my muscles were cold. Will move up to 215 on Thurs!
OVERHEAD PRESS: 4/4/4/4/5 @135# 3@ 140 (PR). Ok, can finally graduate from 135#. This was definitely a challenge, but all my reps were controlled, no cheats, and my form looked very solid. Will start at 140# next week. My shoulders have really responded nicely to the sups and the routine. My delts, traps, and tris are looking good. Love this exercise...wonder why I never see people doing this one at my gym??
DEADLIFTS: 1x5 @ 225, 1x5 @335 (PR). Man, I hope I'm doing these right! Never really did deads until this cycle. Everything I know is from reading "Starting Strength", but I've never had anyone physically walk me through them. All other exercises it seems like I can study my form as I do them and make mental notes of what needs to be corrected. With deads, it's like my brain compresses and has only one thought: "LIIIIFT!!!". When I am done, it's like I woke from a dream and can't remember what happened. The good news is I haven't hurt myself...yet. New PR!!
Finished the morning with 3x10 chin-ups. 3x20 Dips. Had to leave after that for a busy day at work...
The body feels awesome. Totally pain free and energized. Looking forward to the next workout on Thurs.

Intimidate: Dose 49
Erase Pro: Dose 41
PWO: Whey and milk, 1/4 beef, 2 eggs, 2 scoops Craze, 10 pills Hemavol, 25mg Ephedrine sulphate.
Warmup: 1.25 mile run at 7:30 pace. As my Squats get better, this run sucks more. My legs just feel like bricks. Kinda weird since I used to be a runner...but I will take strength over endurance for now.
SQUATS: 4/4/4/4/5 215#. My quads and glutes were still a little sore from Tuesday's punishment. It was tough getting outta the hole today! I liked the feeling of pushing out right through the center of my feet. Good challenge the lower body was spent when it was done. No pain whatsoever = win.
BENCH PRESS: 5x5 @ 230. Per SL, when you fail 3 times, you gotta deload. I welcomed it as I am getting tired of losing to 260 and I guess that is the point. The weight felt nice and easy. I didn't have to chase for a spotter...just put them up myself with plenty of gas in the tank. I was tempted to bump up the weight and go to failure, but decided to stick with the program for once.
BARBELL ROW: 5x5 @215. Decided to go one more time at 215. 5x5 was easy and controlled. Definitely moving to 220 next week.
BARBELL CURLS 5X5 95#.
Taking the weekend off (unless I find a gym in the mountains). See you next week.

Intimidate: Dose 54
Erase Pro: Dose 42
Spent the weekend on a business trip. I won't bother to log the cr@ppy workout I got at the hotel gym. The facility was full of machines that I would never touch ordinarily. Thankfully there was a pullup bar to play with.
Cut back on the EP to EOOD dosing. My right elbow starting cracking when extended. It's not dry...it's DRIED UP. Much better now that I've cut the dose. Erase Pro is no joke.
PWO: 3/2 cup Kashi, 2 scoops Craze, 10 pills Hemavol, 25 mg Ephedrine sulphate.
Warmup: 1.25 mile jog. Went slow as I was wearing my flat-soled canvas Pumas for today's deadlifts.
SQUATS: 5x4 220#. This weight was tough! Went ass to calves. Getting out of the hole was tough on the last set. Before trying to go so deep on Squats I would never have thought I could go down to the floor without hurting my knees. When I was 1/2 squatting I hurt myself all the time. Now after Rippetoe's book I am absolutely injury free. The knees, quads, glutes, and hams still all feel great. Advance to 225# on Thurs.
OVERHEAD PRESS: 5 reps 135. 2/2/2/2 at 145. PR. Was supposed to press 140 today, but could not find the 2 1/2's anywhere in the gym. 135 felt nice and easy. 145 was tough. Tried a 3rd rep on 3 of the sets and failed every time. Will try 145 again this weekend. Still, another PR!
DEADLIFT: 1x5 345# PR. I am starting to really like doing deads. I am getting more comfortable with them for sure. I didn't have much trouble with the pull, but I am approaching the max of what I can hold with a mixed grip. Felt the bar starting to slip on reps 4 and 5. I guess I'll have to look into some straps? Any advice on how to proceed from here much appreciated. Want to improve my grip as much as I can.
Finishing exercises: Pull ups + Dips: 3 x 10/20. Standing Barbell Curls: 5x5 100#
No pain. No injuries. Feel great post-workout. 2 fresh PR's. See you Thursday.

Hotel gyms ALWAYS suck. I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel that had even remotely decent equipment.
04-24-2012, 08:59 PM
Agreed. Although I will give some credit to 4 seasons, who actually stock their gyms with squat racks, adjustable benches, and Olympic bars. Imagine that!! Other than that, I've only seen suckage.Originally Posted by StackedCop

I think they are best Stacked to hit from all angles. Directly increase test while indirectly boosting it by decreasing estrogen! Nothing better IMOOriginally Posted by Est1969

Sub's. Very interested as I just started Erase Pro today as a stand alone Supp. Next cycle I was thinking of stacking it with a test booster.

Intimidate: Dose 56
Erase Pro: Dose 43
PWO: 2 cups Kashi, 2 scoops Craze, 1 sample pack Hemavol (thanks iForce!), 25mg Ephedrine sulfate.
SQUATS: 3/2/3/2/2 225#. Man this was really tough getting out of the hole. Almost used the safety pins on one rep. Will try again at 225 this weekend.
BENCH PRESS: 5x5 235#. Working out of a deload. This time 235# was very easy (compared to the last time I was at this weight several weeks ago). No spotter needed...just put em up. 240 next week.
BARBELL ROWS: 5x4 205#. Decided to deload here to and work the cheats out of my form. Might stay at 205 for one more workout.
CHIN UPS/DIPS: 10/20 10/20 10/20
STANDING BARBELL CURLS: 5x5 100#
REVERSE BARBELL LUNGE: 5x5 185#
DUMBBELL PRESS, INCLINE PRESS, DECLINE PRESS: 5x5 65#/55#/70#
Back at it this weekend.
04-28-2012, 02:16 PM
Intimidate: Dose 58
Erase Pro: Dose 43
PWO: 2 scoops Craze, 10 pills Hemavol, 25mg Ephedrine sulfate. Know what amazes me about my PWO stack? No diminishing returns. Sometimes I even wonder if I have reverse tolerance for this as my workouts just seem to get better. I am really enjoying this one...hope Craze stays with us.
SQUATS: 3/4/4/3/3 225# PR. Definite improvement from last week. Ass to calves, and a real challenge to get out of the hole. Felt great. Sweated my ass off. Great sets. No pain. Will stick with 225 on Tuesday and see if I can't nail a 5x4.
OVERHEAD PRESS: 4/3/3/1/1 145# PR. More reps than last week but I was spent at the end. My shoulders have reached their limit at 145. One more week and I will deload and attack it again from 130.
DEADLIFT: 1x5 225#; 1x5 355# PR. As said earlier, this is my first cycle with Deadlifts and I have finally found my number. Getting the last rep up at 355# took everything in me to finish. I felt like every muscle cell was depleted and had a feeling after that was very similar to a 'runner's high'. I felt fantastic, and depleted at the same time.
3 more PR's to finish up my first cycle of Intimidate. Great stuff. I really benefitted from this sup and look forward to running it again.
Finished up with:
CHINUPS/DIPS 10/20 10/20 10/20
STANDING BARBELL CURLS 5x5 100#
The finishers were really tough as my muscles were spent from 3 PR's on StrongLifts. Taking 3 days off and back on Tuesday.

Intimidate: Finished cycle
Erase Pro: Dose 44
PWO: Kashi, 2 scoops Craze, 10 pills Hemavol, 25 mg Ephedrine:
SQUATS: 3/4/4/4/5 225# PR for reps at this weight. Was a struggle, and clearly I was not warmed up enough as I could only squeeze out 3 on set one but finished 5 on set 5. Really made the muscles burn.
BENCH PRESS: 5/4/4/4/4 240#. Damn I am plateauing on the Bench! I could have squeaked out the 5th rep if I asked for a spotter, but I am getting real burned out on pickup spotters. Dudes always hanging over me with hands over and under the bar even when I ask them to stop. Spotters need to hang back and just wait for me to get into trouble. End rant...but I'm afraid I'm not getting the most push w/o a spotter because I won't lower the bar to my chest unless I am 120% sure I can return it. I may play around with the Smith machine so I can get some failure reps in and stimulate progress.
BARBELL ROW: 5x5 205# Man these felt good today. No cheats.
Finished up with: Chin ups/Dips 3x 10/20. Barbell curls 5x5 100#
05-03-2012, 08:22 PM
Intimidate: Finished Cycle
Erase Pro: Dose 45
PWO: Kashi, 2 scoops Craze, 10 pills Hemavol, 25mg Ephedrine
SQUATS: 5x5 200# I was actually sore today. Is it because I had a very tough squat session on May 1, or because I am recovering slower now that I am off Intimidate? In any case I deloaded down to 200 and will attack 225 again from this weight.
OVERHEAD PRESS: 3@145#, 5/5/5/4 at 135#. OK, now I am paranoid. Losing ground on the Overhead press. I am missing my Intimidate! Damn!! Oh well, gotta go clean for 8 weeks before I hit the little blue pill again. Bummer.
DEADLIFT: 1x5 315#, 1x5 365#. PR! BAM! This was very tough for me to finish. However, my grip was clearly stronger this week than last. I had zero trouble holding the bar where last week I nearly dropped it. Very happy about this lift. Love the way my body feels after deads. Will try 375 next week...but I have my doubts.
Back on Sunday.

Erase Pro: Finished
I figured it might be interesting to some to see how I maintain during the 8 weeks off supplementation. I can tell you that I feel more "normal" than "superman" when I hit the gym. I'm very happy with the gains I've made and hope I can maintain my build as a normal sup-free human. Definitely not as exciting!
SQUATS: 5x5 205#. Very challenging. Kept my form on all reps. As my quads develop they definitely take longer to prepare for working sets. I put in about 20 reps of warm ups before I could get my squats fully deep enough to dive into the working sets of 5x5.
BENCH PRESS: 5x5 225#. Saturday morning shyteshow at the gym. Plates scattered everywhere. I had enough around me to put together 225# so I figured I would deload to this level and do my sets without a spot. No problems here, but no progress either.
BARBELL ROW: 5/4/4/4/4 210#. Challenging. My last rep had a touch of cheat, so only giving credit for 4. Will repeat next week at 210.
Finished with Chin ups/Dips 10/20 x 3. Skipped the curls as I had slight pain in my forearm at the elbow. Now that I am off Intimidate, the little aches and pains are creeping back in...ugh.
