    Ouch, night terrors are awful from what I hear. The kind of stuff that makes a grown man hide behind the covers .

    Workout Notes:

    -Great workout, strength up, great MMC, killed it on cardio.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Getting to the end of this first bottle and getting ready to introduce Ergotest to the stack. The timing is AWESOME because there is a good chance I'm getting bloodwork (for something unrelated, kidney function) so I could potentially have before and after bloods.
    -Sleep is as good as ever.
    -Strength is going up, weight is staying the same or going down. Recomp effects continue. This seriously is one of my few truly successful recomp periods, and all without tracking diet or even taking in that​ much protein.

    Coop, a quick question for you about Ergobolic. Seeing as you how feel that Ergobolic has more of an "adaptagenic" effect on cortisol (I will assume by this you mean it more promotes healthy cortisol levels, or helps to keep them on the low end of healthy, and prevents cortisol spikes from training and daily life stressors? Please correct me if I'm wrong.). If those are indeed your thoughts, and I've seen you say you feel that Reduce XT and Ergobolic are fine to be stacked together, would you think running Reduce XT and Ergobolic one right after the other (eg., Reduce XT 4 weeks, Ergoblic 4 weeks, Reduce XT 4 weeks, Ergoblic 4 weeks) is too much? Or do you feel that Ergobolic might lower cortisol a bit too much for that to be adviseable?

    I guess I'm looking at it from the viewpoint of Reduce XT being a "strict" or "pure" cortisol reducer while Ergobolic is more of a rather potent Adaptagenic complex that keeps cortisol at bay. Which if this is indeed true, wouldn't it actually be a good idea to run Ergobolic AFTER a run of a cortisol controller to keep levels from possibly spiking back in any way?

    I think you could do a full 16 weeks of alternating products and then take a month off. I know the "cycling" is built-in by alternating use, but I'd simply let your cortisol production, spikes included, return to baseline after 4 months on.

    You should not be worried about cortisol rebound following Reduce XT because such a phenomenon does not occur in the human body.

    100x9

    Cardio:

    Row Machine:

    HIIT- 22
    total cycles of:

    1 minute slow
    30 seconds intense

    Ended with a 2:30 (2 minute, 30 second) cooldown.

    Total time: 35:30 (34 minutes, 30 seconds)

    Workout Notes:

    -I switched things up a bit today. I dialed back the weight and reduced the reps, and focused more on the mind-muscle connection and exercising the muscle with slow negatives and the like. Made for some vicious pumps! I think I'm going to take this approach with all my hypertrophy days from here on out. While the power days are focused on maximizing the "movements," hypertrophy days should have an emphasis on "feeling the muscle."

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Ergobolic truly has a profound effect on sleep that only seems to get better with use. James, can we say with certainty that it's the Sutherlandia at work? I am so impressed with how deep I'm sleeping and how vivid my dreams are. Each night is better than the last.
    -Continuing to recomp for sure. Strength was up on both my previous power sessions, but weight is again down. I started this run at 12-13% BF, but right now I sit at a BF% almost lower than I did at the end of my cut. Right now I'm at about 10%, and I'm very happy with the level of muscle fullness given such a low BF% (as I usually get flatter when I get more cut).


    ErgoTest Notes:

    -2 days in so it's a little early to say. Could very well be placebo but I'm already noticing a "boner effect."

    I knew you meant to say that buddy its ok, it happens to the best of us.

    Now as for the Power and Hypertrophy change, I see this a plus, and something many should take note of. While power requires mind muscle connection too, its more about the torque and will to lift it, that you put into it, as opposed to hypertrophy where, if deeper and more focused MM connection is achieved, slower and more precise repetitions will occur to target and attack every muscle fiber. Good stuff bro, and nice to know this is working out perfectly on par with your training. While I do believe Ergobolic has the potential for this recomping effects, I think it is also due to the massive amount of volume and numbers you put into the training, besides you are a HIIT nut compared to the likes of RickRock haha, so I can say its mostly 90% coop 10%ergobolic for recomping qualities, but I do have a need to try this since it does intrigue me if such effects would be applicable with my style of training and periodization of cardio. I shall add this further in my bulk and closer to my cut in a sort of transition to a recomp before cutting in the spring.

    Keep it up Coop! Truly an inspiration to see those numbers, and quite a laugh to hear your ergotest confessions ;p!

    Coop, the sleep effects seem to be Sutherlandia related.

    Getting strong and lean eh? Hehe.
    With regards to the less protein thing I tend to think the over dieting leads to the body wanting to use a lot more protein for energy. For whatever its worth, that IMO, is a horrible thing lol.
    I changed my diet (via our short chat months ago) and have since lowered my protein even further .6-8g/LBM and upped the fat and carbs and noticed a lot more energy. Sometimes too I think when I "diet" or focus on losing weight I think I should be suffering so I tend to be not as happy. Which could lead to stress etc. Sorry to invade your log lol.

    Strong lifts though man! Making me look like a big for nothing douche!

    Keep killing it!

    Your points are all physiologically relevant. I agree that we all tend to overestimate our protein requirements, especially in a hypercaloric state. Depriving yourself of a balanced diet can definitely lead to neurotransmitter imbalances.

    Thanks Coop. I'm gonna pick up some Ergobolic and Reduce XT probably and I just might give this a go if I like what I'm seeing. Following along on the log, good stuff brother!

    225x10

    Lying Leg Curl

    115x15
    115x15

    Cable Crunches

    110x10

    Hanging Leg Raises

    BWx15/fail

    Cardio:

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

    15 total cycles of:

    1 minute walk
    20 second sprint

    Followed by a 4 minute cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 275
    Total time: 24 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -I took the new approach I had for yesterday's workout and applied it to today. I decreased weight on squats and standing calf raises, two lifts which I did not feel I was getting enough leg "isolation" on, and lo and behold, my legs are more tired than ever. Knees buckled almost laughably on my walk out of the gym.
    -This workout really tested my VO2 max. The squats, lunges, Romanian DLs, and high rep extensions/curls all required one of two things: either breathing was difficult due to maintaining core stiffness (squat/DL), or the reps were so high that oxygen demand was through the roof (all the others). This is the first time I have ever done HIIT regularly, and I feel it is paying off BIG TIME on my hypertrophy day workout performance.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Last night's sleep was the best yet. I do notice that ergobolic knocks me out to the point that I want to sleep-in every morning. However, waking up is no real issue because I end up feeling refreshed no matter when I'm up. I am also still waking up once per night in a cold sweat haha
    -Weight was obviously up today, but that's a function of basic fluctuations.
    -Stim effect was huge today from my preworkout. Kudos to sutherlandia.

    ErgoTest Notes:

    -I have a feeling this stuff kicks in fast. Either there are more hot girls at my gym, or my libido is already on the rise.
    -Balls may or may not be getting bigger


    Random thought: who else has gotten bloodwork the day after a weight training session? I haven't received my results yet, but one of the primary reasons I was getting tested was due to my high creatinine levels on an old blood test. I'm hoping the high volume weight training + HIIT won't confound my creatinine values. Anyone else been in this situation? I made sure to drink ample amounts of water if that helps, but fasting for the tested started at 10 PM the night before so food intake was lower than usual.

    Started my Ergobolic bottle yesterday. I am very glad I read your comments regarding it possibly amplifying the effect of stims. I dialed back my Craze PWO from 2 scoops to about .75 scoop just to be safe. Honestly, even that felt like too much. Next workout I am going to drop the Craze to 1/2 scoop. Coop I think you saved me from puking at the gym today. Thanks bro.

    Also: "Total Time = 24 mins" encompasses what part of your routine?

    Thanks dude haha. The RDLs are such a finesse movement. The slow negatives are absolutely killer on the cardiovascular system because I don't breathe for a solid 5 seconds on the descent in order to keep my core firm. God bless HIIT

    Haha glad to see I'm not alone. I recently heard of another ergobolic user also noticing the same amplified stim effect. It's very cool because I haven't needed to "up my dose" of preworkouts or EC for the entire month, and the effects haven't diminished one bit. I can only imagine what ergobolic + craze would be like haha.

    24 minutes = my total cardio/HIIT time. I'm not doing the HIIT for the caloric burn, but rather for the performance benefits it confers on the my weight training sessions. Further, HIIT on the row machine and incline elliptical seem to be building muscle in the back and legs, respectively.

    Total calories burnt: 285
    Total time: 24:30 (24 minutes, 30 seconds)

    Workout Notes:

    -So I didn't get sh!t for sleep last night. That's right...for once ergobolic failed me! Truth be told, it was just one of those nights in which my mind got absurdly active and starting going off on ridiculous mental tangents while I sat there waiting for sleep to hit me. Slept at around 3 am and woke up at 7 am, and I never really entered deep sleep. I was feeling groggy as hell, and as you know by now, I train fasted first thing in the AM, so the thought of going to the gym was terrible at the time but I forced myself to do it. As is always the case with exercise, I'm glad I did.
    -Training session was solid today. Once again focused on the Mind Muscle Connection rather than moving weight, and it turns out that most lifts stayed the same or improved slightly. By the end of the session, my arms were extremely pumped and extremely fatigued. Cardio went smoothly...I pushed myself to the limit on the final interval for a full 45 seconds, and man...dat endorphin rush. Getting legally high rocks.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -So as I said earlier, sleep wasn't good for the first time ever. Not sure what was up, but I'll consider adding 1mg melatonin to the mix tonight if it happens again, rather than wasting 2-3 hours in bed while my mind wanders.
    -Still recomping as far as I'm concerned. Bodyfat definitely appears to be the lowest it's been in the past month. Weight is 1 lb higher than the lowest it's been in 3 months. Lifts on power day are improving, on hypertrophy days I'm just going by feel. I feel pretty lean in my glutes which is always an indication to me that my BF% is getting sub-10%. For instance, sitting on hard chairs (like a basic dining table chair) makes the bones in my ass uncomfortable because the fat layer is fading.


    ErgoTest Notes:

    -Well, one thing I will say is that this stuff is causing regular morning woods lol. Even this morning, with minimal sleep, I was...you know.
    -Libido seems up. I guess it's safe to say bulbine is a great libido aid at the very minimum. Now let's see if the increase in T can take me places with my training, sleep, and overall mood (though I feel that ergobolic has already significantly influenced my mood).

    Days 35-36 (6/17-6/18)

    Well for starters, my sister threw a party last night. I happen to store my supplements in the basement, and I have a stash built up of about 15 or so supplements. I go down to the stash today and I am missing some really expensive stuff...Bioforge v3, Myobuild, Nanostim, Xtend, Agmatine, and PEA. Huge bummer, and no real hope for getting them back. Not a good start to my day.


    PHAT DAY - Upper Body Power


    Weight: 166 lbs

    Underhanded Barbell Row

    180x5
    180x4
    180x4

    Pullups/Chinups

    BW+25x7 (Pullup)
    BW+25x6 (Hammer-Grip Pullup)
    BW+25x7 (Chinup)
    BW+25x6 (Pullup)

    Flat DB Bench (the first rep of every set was unassisted but I didn't get a good ROM on that rep because I couldn't get set properly if I went too deep...weights were heavy for me)

    80sx5
    80sx5
    80sx5

    Dips

    BW+45x8
    BW+45x8

    Standing Barbell Military Press

    100x6
    100x6

    Cable Crunches

    110x12

    Hanging Leg Raises

    BWx15/fail

    Cardio:

    HIIT: Rowing Machine

    22 cycles of:

    1 minute slow
    30 seconds fast

    Followed by a 3 minute cooldown.

    Total time: 36 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -The workout was solid. I felt a little weak today but I maintained strength in the end. My diet has definitely been too hypocaloric this past weekend, so I'm gonna pound some carbs today in hopes of saving performance tomorrow during heavy leg day.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -I really feel that ergobolic may become on of my go-to supplements in the future (the list is very small ). Sleep and vivid dreams continue and intensify, muscle loss appears to be minimized even when I'm not taking in enough food, and fat loss hasn't let up one bit.

    ErgoTest Notes:

    -So I'm noticing that my libido is very streaky right now. Some days it's way up, other days it's way down. Not sure what the cause is, but it's obviously external factors.
    -Penile sensitivity appears to be much higher. My shorts rubbing against my _____during rows was particularly agonizing haha

    Must...resist...the need to make fun about Penile Sensitivity and the real words that should have been uttered in said circumstance !

    On a side note , Damn brother, Those 80x5 DB Bench Presses are quite amazing, that is almost BW on DB , and knowing you...it was fully controlled and allowing better ROM than standard BP it looks like that injury is not holding back muscle memory and you are getting back your strength! Good stuff and wow...seriously!!?? BW+25 on the pull ups and chin ups!! Seriously brother you are one strong man for your weight...but then again it IS mostly LBM since you have low BF .

    Now how are you liking the Lucid Dream effects in correlation to Penile Sensitivity having more extreme REM experiences Coop? hahahahaha JK bro Keep it up with the workouts, its amazing to see the amount of dedication you put into them!

    Cardio:

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

    15 total cycles of:

    1 minute walk
    20 second sprint

    Followed by a 5 minute cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 295
    Total time: 25 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -The workout went well, as I maintained or gained strength on all lifts. However, during a set of good mornings, I tweaked my hamstring. Didn't feel it too much at the time but with each progressive hour it has gotten worse and right now I am in some pretty serious pain. I don't need to move, just sitting hurts. Gonna have to do some RICE, 6 grams cissus, and joint force applications.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -It seems that my weight loss from 170 lbs is pretty legit. It looks like all in all, I've dropped about 2-3 lbs of fat in the past two weeks, which is a great pace considering, once again, that I'm not monitoring my diet and eating freely.
    -DEFINITELY felt the enhanced stim effect today haha
    -Sleep was great, and I woke up more refreshed than usual for my grueling workout.

    ErgoTest Notes:

    -The rise in libido is pretty real. Bulbine at play? I'm most taken aback by how rapidly my libido has increased. It's pretty much only been a week!
    -I do feel that I'm retaining/gaining muscle while losing weight, which is probably a function of ergobolic, ergotest, and HIIT.

    You leave me speechless sometimes too brother (No homo!) haha.

    Keep it up brother killer workout and I might take up on some ergobolic sooner than I thought...stress is creeping up on me and well, as far as cortisol control, it does seem to help, but I rather need the enhanced stim effect for days like this where I am only going to get around 4 1/2 hours of sleep...

    Haha exactly. It's worth it for the sleep effects alone.

    Total calories burnt: 350
    Total time: 31:30 (31 minutes, 30 seconds)

    Workout Notes:

    -Pretty solid workout today. Went with my new approach of not paying attention to the weight I'm moving but rather working on fatiguing the muscle with explosive contractions and controlled negatives. Seems to be working great, pumps were insane!

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Ok, I'm calling Ergogenix on this one. I finally got my surgery scheduled for June 28th. This means there will still be 2 weeks left of ergobolic and ergotest (though I may pick up a second ergotest). What I'm wondering is: can I run this through my surgery? I'll have to be inactive for about a week after the surgery, but based on the data on Sutherlandia in movement-restricted rats, it seems like this would actually be the perfect time to take ergobolic. I just want to make sure there won't be any vascular issues, blood thinning, etc...I've just discontinued my fish oil, multi (due to vitamin E content), coq10, preworkout ephedrine (though I'm keeping my caffeine tabs), citrulline malate, etc. The same question applies to ergotest...it seems fine on the surface but just want to make sure. I'll probably skip 2-3 days worth of both about 24-48 hours prior to surgery and 24 hours after, just to be totally safe. I'd ask my physician, but there is no way in hell he knows what sutherlandia or momordica do in the body LOL.
    -Sleep was stellar with vivid dreams.
    -Weight is up but looking leaner than ever...BUENO.


    ErgoTest Notes:

    -Libido seems to be fluctuating like crazy. I'm not thinking about sex constantly, but when the opportunity presents itself, I get more into it than I normally would.
    -Feeling fuller overall, though this could be multiple factors.

    Thanks man. It's reconstructive surgery on my ankle. Apparently, what I thought were shin splints were actually stress fractures.

    Followed by a 4:40 (4 minute, 40 second) cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 305
    Total time: 26 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -Had a really good workout today. Was kinda dragging before the gym (I wake up and train fasted first thing in the AM, so if I'm groggy, it's bad news), but after my explosive training I really started to feel pretty good.
    -I had some lingering pain from my hamstring tweak 3 days ago, but I pushed through it and I'm actually feeling much better now. I've been megadosing cissus but today will be the last day I do so in preparation for my surgery. I suspect cissus + ergobolic will be very valuable in recovery from surgery.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -I slept very deeply last night but I had a tough time getting to bed. It's never fun when you fall asleep at 5:45 AM with the sun already out and the birds chirping.
    -The enhanced stimulant effect in conjunction with EC stack really helped me get through this session.
    -I have spoken with James and I will be discontinuing ergobolic/ergotest a few days before surgery and probably the day of and the day after. I will resume the final ~2 weeks worth during a period of inactivity. While still tracking effects on sleep and mood, i will be most interested in how much muscle retention can be achieved through the combination of ergobolic, ergotest, and a high protein diet post-op.

    ErgoTest Notes:

    -Libido is once again up, manifesting mostly in my dreams lol.
    -The combo of ergobolic and ergotest has definitely affected my mood in a positive manner.
    -I do seem to be getting bigger pumps in the gym, consistently. Who knows what's up

    The pumps are likely from the LCLT in ErgoTest

    Ditto, even when dosed in a GDA and not PWO fashion it has that cumulative-use effect.

    Well, I have been using SNS Citrulline Malate + EC stack + Ergobolic as my preworkout for the past month, alongside some ALCAR if the focus is needed. Fullness does appear to be up though. I'm always cautious about attributing any effect to any one cause since we all know how multifactorial every physiological process is.

    Cardio:

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

    16 total cycles of:

    1 minute walk
    20 second sprint

    Followed by a 5:20 (5 minute, 20 seconds) cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 320
    Total time: 27:00

    Workout Notes:

    -Had a really nice workout today. Pumps were out of control today, especially with all the high rep arm work. I'm off most supplements now with the exception of a few "safe" staples and ergobolic+ergotest. The doctor is also asking me to start taking Arnica Montana prior to the surgery, so I'll start that tomorrow.
    -I will have 2 more training sessions before the surgery.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Sleep last night was superb as always, and the enhanced stimulant effect was present even when ingesting only a caffeine tab preworkout today (as opposed to my usual EC).
    -Hovering in the high 160s at a pretty low BF% right now. I'm getting abdominal definition on my top 4 abs while sitting down, indicating there is still a small subcutaneous layer above my lowest row of abs (though they are visible when standing). The leanest I've been in a while for sure, and strength and energy levels are great despite the low BF%.


    ErgoTest Notes:

    -The product seems to increase not only libido but also penile vasodilation...just being honest here .
    -Through a combination of improved adaptation to training, ergobolic, ergotest, and SNS Citrulline Malate, I barely ever get sore anymore despite the high volume workouts. Recovery is great and I feel like doing HIIT (which taxes my legs quite a bit) multiple days in a row is not really an issue.

    Celly, I can't tell you where to get it but a google search will do you well. I really want to try this stuff again after a month off, and stack it with Reduce XT to see how favorable the recomposition effects can get.

    Days 42-43 (6/24-6/25)

    16 total cycles of:

    1:40 walk
    20 second sprint

    Followed by a 3:30 (3 minute, 30 seconds) cooldown walk

    Total calories burnt: 410
    Total time: 35:30 (35 minutes, 30 seconds)

    Workout Notes:

    -So I'm off all supplements except caffeine, ergobolic, ergotest, gut health, vitamin C, vitamin D, and Arnica Montana (the latter 3 are recommended by my physician pre-surgery). I'm going to go off ergobolic and ergotest tomorrow to be safe (surgery is thursday), and I'm going to stop taking gut health as well because I will be on anti-biotics post-op so it's basically a lost cause to supplement probiotics lol.
    -Workout today went fine. Preworkout I had a caffeine tab and ergobolic fasted in the morning. Energy was lower than my usual EC preworkout, and muscular acidity felt a lot more apparent during cardio, but performance didn't skip a beat and I actually gained strength in some lifts.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -I will take my final pre-op dose tonight. I will then resume ergobolic on Friday. The same goes for Ergotest.
    -Sleep was great as always...I'm gonna miss this, especially when I have to be in bed at like 8 PM the night before my surgery. Ughhh
    -I ate like crap yesterday. I went to Hurricane harbor (a six flags waterpark) and ate all the usual amusement park crap: a hot dog, a bacon cheeseburger, and an entire funnel cake (it had been a while!). Also got some dippin dots ice cream on the way out to pair with the Pure Protein bar I left in the car. All of that said, I do look like I'm holding more water (aka "softer"), but I still feel that I'm where I cant to be, physique-wise.

    ErgoTest Notes:

    -The libido effects are definitely growing. I may pick up a second bottle to experience a full 8 week run. Recovery continues to be better.

    Haha, I'm not being hard. There is no clean or dirty food if everything is eaten in moderation. I was simply referring to overall caloric intake. Well, and trans fats since that's basically all funnel cake is .

    -Good workout. Weight felt heavy on front squats and leg press. This, coupled with my lingering hamstring injury, tells me that it's time for a deload...which is perfect, since my operation is Thursday! No more training sessions for a little while.
    -Only supplements for tomorrow are what the doctor told me to take: arnica montana, vitamin C, and b12.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -Been off it: will resume on Friday.
