    Total calories burnt: 150
    Total time: 14 minutes, 20 seconds


    Workout Notes:

    -Since today was my last day of 5/3/1, I decided to do a little bit of everything to see which exercises I will incorporate into my next routine, which I expect will be Layne Norton's PHAT.
    -Trained fasted today with the exception of BCAAs and my preworkout concoction. HIIT was absolutely brutal, but it feels great to be done.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -The sleep effects are very real at this point. The last time I slept this good was when I was using ZMA + L-Dopa + occasionally melatonin. I woke up this morning absolutely refreshed, and while I did not intend on training fasted right away, I felt so energized by my deep sleep that I decided to go straight to the gym.
    -On the occasions when I go to the bathroom at night, I am THIRSTY. I usually slam a full 20 oz water bottle throughout my few trips to the bathroom each night. I really believe ergobolic has rid me of excess water and has some sort of diuretic effect.
    -No sore joints as of yet...excellent.
    Pretty good workout Cy! , hope those injuries don't lag you behind much buddy , and freaking good strength you got on that back for those weighted pull/hammer/chin ups buddy! Keep it up , and make sure you DO wake up to go the bathroom hahaha having such deep sleep you wouldn't wanna wake up to a yellow mellow pond now would yah? hahaha

    Cardio:

    LISS - Walking on Treadmill

    Time: 30 minutes
    Incline: 2.0
    Speed: 4.0 mph

    Time: 5 minutes
    Incline: 2.0
    Speed: 4.7 mph

    Time: 5 minutes
    Incline: 2.0
    Speed: 4.4 mph


    Workout Notes:

    -Pretty happy with this new routine already. Just the right amount of volume, and it there's not a lot of fluff.
    -I'm happy that my flat DB Bench already increased by 5 lbs per dumbbell in 1 week. I guess I should expect rapid strength gains on chest now that I've started training it seriously following the injury. It's like being a newbie again .

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -For all the great sleep I've been having this past week, I did not sleep a wink last night. A combination of the heat and a bothersome sore throat kept me up all night, mind racing but body fatigued. Hopefully tonight I can get back into the swing of things again. Overall, I do feel that ergobolic has contributed to how I feel on a day-to-day basis. I don't feel rundown due to my lack of sleep, and ergobolic does appear to help with feeling refreshed and wakeful.
    -As far as body composition goes, I've gained 1/2 a lb in the past 3 days and have gained a decent amount of strength on chest, so I think things are moving in the right direction there.
    -Is ergobolic supposed to make me feel warmer?
    -Still no sore joints or other annoying low-cortisol sides.

    You know its my pleasure to follow along bud!

    Hm...seems the cortisol control does work , and the formula seems to have come along with pretty likeable results in the sleep and mood department also. Get well on the throat and don't let yourself get sick ! I wish I could be going up in weight as slow and lean as you are doing it man...I would rather that than the express way to fatty town my body seems to have taken in the past 2 weeks :S! Other than that , i do suppose that Black Tea might have a slight thermogenic effect , but don't quote me on that

    Dude, you are doing great. Early weight gain in a bulk is expected as your body adjusts to the increased calories, replenishes glycogen stores, and holds more water overall.

    It is indeed very similar. I had to change some of the exercises simply because I need to work around my injury + I know what my body responds best to.

    Cardio:

    HIIT - Elliptical
    Cross-ramp setting: 6 (slight incline)

    11 total cycles of:

    1 minute walk
    20 second sprint

    Followed by a 1 minute cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 165
    Total time: 15 minutes, 40 seconds

    Workout Notes:

    -This was a great training session, but it was extremely weird. I took the following preworkout (fasted): BCAAs, EC stack, 2g ALCAR, 2g PLCAR, 8g Citrulline Malate (all SNS ), and my 2 ergobolic caps. I don't know what was going on, but I was getting lightheaded before even doing a single set. I felt like passing out/dizzy after each set of deadlifts and the feeling continued throughout the session. I've done this combination numerous times with no issue, so I was quite shocked. My performance did not suffer, but I was a little worried as I went from set to set as my BP dipped pretty low, spontaneously.
    -On the flip side, HIIT was unusually easy. I guess excessive vasodilation can be a good thing in some circumstances, but I'm still unsure as to why the sole vasodilators I took (caffeine and citrulline malate) affected me so profoundly today.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -So despite eating in a pretty large caloric surplus, I am down 1 lb from yesterday and about 9 total lbs in one week. Obviously the 8 or so pounds that I dropped overnight were pretty much extra water I was holding, but it's interesting that I'm getting stronger and eating more, and yet my weight is either stagnant or getting lower. I look better in the mirror and it does appear that hypertrophy/fullness is present, and with no other supplements besides the basics and EC preworkout only, I'd have to give some credit to Ergobolic.
    -Sleep was great again. Got 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep, a true rarity for me.
    -I am getting lots of night sweats, and have been since starting ergobolic. At first I thought it was the weather, but last night was cool and I still got the night sweats. Not sure what may be causing this, but I don't really mind.
    -All in all, I'm over a week into Ergobolic and I am pleased so far .

  11. 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep would be a dream come true for me haha good work Coop

    1 minute walk
    20 second sprint

    Followed by a 1 minute cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 185
    Total time: 17 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -I am really loving PHAT so far. With my previous routine (5/3/1), my goal was to move the maximum amount of weight each time I stepped up to the plate. Rest periods were longer and I was pushing double the weight that I used in many of today's exercises. HOWEVER, like any other strength routine, I wasn't totally isolating a bodypart or getting the mind-muscle connection that I would hope. Rather, the focus was constantly on exploding upwards with the core, and recruiting as many muscle fibers and possible. Today, I got a true taste of hypertrophy training, something I haven't felt in a long time. My CNS didn't get tired by workout's end, but my body...the burn was intense. 13 rep lunges with 50 lb dumbbells and slow, controlled form took a TON out of me. Cardio topped it all off. The volume on this routine is really something else, but I love it.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Sleep is great and I'm starting to get more lucid/vivid dreams than normal.
    -Body composition continues to improve. The recomposition effects seem more present than ever, as I am down 2 lbs since a week ago while eating more and looking fuller.
    -Does ergobolic enhance the effects of stimulants? Every time I take it preworkout with EC, the EC becomes far more anxiogenic and I get the jitters. Not a big deal, just something I've noticed.

  17. Are these all in a straight sets format?

    You have some strong potential for pairing antagonistic exercises.

    I pair every antagonistic exercise on this day and others. However, I post my logs in the format that Norton uses for his PHAT. It's honestly the best way to go as far as maintaining strength throughout the workout.

  19. You mean antagonistic exercises decreasing the performance drop off curve? This is why I use them religiously.

    When I saw your routine it is posted like it was in straight sets and I was about to go mental at you, never mind, please continue lol.

    That's exactly what I mean. In some cases, the pump from one body part actually aids contractions for the antagonistic part (pumped biceps propelling my tri's on skullcrushers come to mind).

  21. Cy,
