    day 24 - friday) Arms

    dont wanna bore yall with everything i did, just hit the highlights for this one. i was using strict form standing DB curls and able to get 45lbs 10 times. Im sure some people put me to shame on that, but I was doing 50lb DBs when i was 220lbs, and now im at 191lbs and doing the 45lbs... YEAHHHHHH buddy.

    day 25) Chest (cause my buddy wanted to see what my chest day was like)

    Seeing how i wore my triceps out yesterday, i wasnt putting up huge numbers. the good part is it made my chest do all the work!! i was pumped up big time!

    some things to note from this workout:

    -was able to get 225 x 8 on flat bench. i suck at bench press, so this was surprising to me. im happy, seeing how im 191lbs right now.
    -Veins now coming through my shoulders. never had that before, but im guessing its cause im getting leaner!!

    Overall a good workout. Ill get pics up tomorrow night.

    *strength so far- UP!
    *endurance - WAY up
    *not bloated or carrying extra water weight

    day 26 - sunday ) off day. went to visit my grandpa and celebrate his 88th birthday! also, i didnt take pics as you can tell. but i did today (monday)

    day 27) Shoulders!

    Had an excellent shoulder workout, until my leg shoulder rotated backwards and kinda collapsed during some DB military presses. I let it rest for a few min, then kept on going. it still feels kinda weird, but doesnt hurt, so not sure what is going on. i didnt go as heavy after that, but i still got a great workout in.

    Here are the updated pics, hopefully the progress is evident. if its not, please tell me. also, its a point and shoot camera in a bathroom, so its not going to really give ya the best definition.

    this is 4 hours after working out, and post shower. so i have cooled down and my vascularity is still very present (biceps, forearms).

    day 28) LEGS!!!!

    so, no more ignite 2 that stuff was great. im going to miss having that as a preworkout, but funds wont allow for another purchase right now. i have about 4 days worth of Crea-Trona left, so we'll see what i can manage until then.

    Front squats

    135 x 15
    185 x 9 x 2
    205 x 7
    185 x 6
    155 x 10
    135 x 11

    Leg press supersetted with Barbell Walking Lunges

    6 plates total x 10 x 3 - 110lbs x 10 lunges each leg x 3

    Standing Calf Raises

    285 x 12
    330 x 10 x 2
    entire stack x 10 x 2
    285 x failure

    Leg extension machine / Leg curl machine/ Horizontal Calf all supersetted

    180 x 10 x 4 - 160 x 12 x 4 - 280 x 15 x 4

    I was sweating so bad after all this, huffing and puffing like i had just run a marathon or somethin. I really like the short break, high tempo workout. its like getting a bit of cardio in while building muscle and burning fat! i love it!! Weight was 190lbs, but that was also before dinner.

    Anybody see improvements from the starting pics? ill try to take one last set this weekend to show my final results. I can already attest to the fact that Crea-Trona is great stuff. Stacked with Ignite 2 and you have one helluva muscle building, fat destroying combo. like i said, these 2 products are without a doubt going to be in my PCT for my upcoming cycle.

    That pict of me, my avatar, was a once in a lifetime kind of lean! I am about where you are now give or take 1%, we have different body-types, so probably the same body-fat, but holding in different places, I'd say I'm around 10-11%-ish right now, to me anything below 10% is lean and anything below 8% is ripped and anything below 6% is contest ready shredded to the BONE!!!

    Yo Bro, can I post one of your picts on FINAFLEX's FaceBook Fan Page and a small bio on how you like Crea-Trona thus far? Just a couple of sentences would suffice, you can just post it up here (mini-half-way review) and I'll just cut it and paste it and say it is from laserbluess from AnabolicMinds, etc. Can you do that for me, Please?

    You're a tad leaner though and pretty lean over all.. the big change is the muscle volume though...

    of course! might wanna wait til sunday so that the after pics will be even better

    Crea-Trona mini Review: The supplement industry is flooded with products, creatine especially. Most people think creatine, is creatine, is creatine and that monohydrate is the end all be all. Well, I can attest that this is not true. Crea-Trona is leaps and bounds above the other creatines i have ever taken, including monohydrate, ethyl ester, dicreatine malate, creatine nitrate, and Kre-alkyln. Most creatines do not even begin to yield results for a few weeks, but in only 4 weeks on Crea-Trona I have gained lean mass, while dropping bodyfat, and keeping my bodyweight the same. My strength has been steadily increasing, and my workouts have been full-throttle the whole time. My endurance has also jumped up considerably. One last thing I want to note in particular is my recovery time. I know some people love being sore the day or 2 after workouts, but Crea-Trona has substantially lowered how sore I get, and the duration of soreness, which has allowed me to push even harder for better gains!

    agreed. i woke up this morning feeling full (muscle wise). veins are definitely more prevalent. Im trying to a carb cycling (not sure if this is the right terminology) where i keep it low carb 3 days, around 50 grams or less per day, then carb up with about 200 grams of carbs on the 4th day. so far its working really well for me!

    day 31) friday

    took the day off to rest and relax. went to see Prometheus which was very good.

    day 32) Satuday - Full body

    I thought, what the heck , why not do a full body circuit and just blow it all out since this is the final day of Crea-Trona. I was sweating so bad, could barely catch my breath, and loved every grueling second of it. i got my chest, arms, shoulders, legs and core all in an hour and half.

    Here are the after pics, ill post them on the first post as well so you can get a good comparison of what 4 weeks had done.







    had to get a bicep peak in there!!

    I had to click on this because you said you are getting swole. There is nothing like getting big for the summer and you picked a great time to do it. Good luck in your training
