    Thumbs up Mr.Cooper69 Logs the NEW Ergogenix ERGOBOLIC!


    Before getting this log off the ground, I'd like to extend my thanks to James, the Ergogenix Bossman, for sending me not one, but two bottles of the new ergobolic (not to mention the sickest company t-shirt I've seen to date). I will be running the first bottle by itself for the first month and then stacking the second bottle with Ergotest during month 2 to see what happens .







    The Dosing

    2 in the AM on an empty stomach, 2 in the PM with dinner

    The Training

    5/3/1 with assistance work of choice

    My Stats and Goals

    Weight: 178 lbs
    HeightL 5'10"
    BF%: 11-12% using photo-guides as my estimators
    Goal: Get up to 180 lbs and then maintain/recomp thereafter

    Diet
    I have recently finished cutting + reverse dieting, so I'm ready to lift some dietary restrictions. First, I will not be tracking calories/macros on a daily basis, nor will I weigh foods. My hunger levels have normalized following my cut, so I will simply use my appetite as the judge and pick foods that aren't calorically dense or nutritionally sparse.

    Other Supplements

    Orange Triad
    Orange Oximega Fish Oil
    SNS Green Tea Extract (low-dosed for antioxidant support)
    CEL Cycle Assist (half-dosed for antioxidant support)
    SNS Magnesium Creatine Chelate
    SNS Beta-alanine Caps
    Genomyx Gut Health

    Preworkout: EC + MAN Body Octane + SNS Citrulline Malate + 2g SNS COP



    Ergobolic will be my only supplement outside of the basic ergogenics and overall health aides. My first dose will be tomorrow in the AM prior to my deadlift session. Let's see what happens...stay tuned!

    Actually I had that (old version). I'm still going to get back to you about the rest of it...I'm pondering if it's worth it since SNS can essentially supply a BO homebrew.

    2 grams is the minimum efficacious dose given the 60% oral bioavailability.

    I have been looking into momordica for quite some time as a fat loss agent, but perhaps even more intriguing is the Sutherlandia.

    Sup flex, I wondered the same thing and it's because they are two different extracts, only one of which is standardized to 40% theaflavins.

    Glad to see all of you here. I just got back home right now (2 AM) and tomorrow is an off-day anyway so I'll post a real in-depth update tomorrow. It's been a very draining day, but I couldn't think of a better day for Ergobolic to shine in .

    Days 1-2 (5/14-5/15)

    As a brief background, let me start by saying that 5/14 was my first day getting back into the swing of things. With finals week and graduation out of the way, I have more free time to focus on BBing. This was my first workout using moderately heavy weight in 2 weeks, as I am going through a couple ailments right now: I have been recovering from a torn pec minor for the past 5 months, and I have numerous stress fractures in my shin/ankle area (a combination of genetics and cardio). At some point in the summer, I will have to have an operation done which will leave me out of commission for 2 months, so I had a rather poor mindset that why even hit the gym hard at all if I stand to "lose" much of my progress. Well rather than keeling over and bitching out, I decided I'm going to work my way back into my normal routine, and with the extra motivation provided by Ergobolic and this log, I will power through the next 2 months.

    Now that I'm bulking again without a caloric limit, I've increased the volume of my 5/3/1 sessions tremendously. My strength has dropped a ton on numerous lifts due to injury recovery and school (my bench press dropped about 50 lbs in the 5 months since my tear...chest has atrophied too which sucks ; DL dropped 30 lbs, Squat 30 lbs, Military Press 10 lbs), but with proper nutrition in place, I hope to make some strides.

    5/3/1 Macrocycle 5, A1 - Deadlift Day


    Weight: 172 lbs (more on this below, I think EC + Cardio shed massive amounts of water)

    Core Work:

    Deadlift

    275x5
    320x5
    360x7

    Assistance Work:

    Deadlift

    355x5
    355x5
    355x5

    Good Morning

    135x8

    DB Walking Lunges

    70sx6
    70sx6

    Cable Crunches

    110x9
    110x9
    110x8
    110x8

    Hanging Leg Raises

    BWxfailure
    BWxfailure
    BWxfailure

    Standing Calf Raises

    140x12

    Seated Leg Curl

    100x12


    Cardio:


    LISS
    7.0 MPH, 0 incline for 20 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -Not pleased with my deadlift killer set as I was hoping for more reps, but I'm happy to at least put up a fight.
    -Weight after cardio was 172 lbs! EC was my preworkout choice, and I was dripping sweat by the end of the cardio, so it looks like I lost a decent bit of water.
    -Threw in a couple random exercises at the end because I wanted to try out some new equipment as I have just switched gyms. I'm currently going to LA fitness, and on Day 1 they told me I had to put my chalk in the locker because its use is forbidden.
    -I was recently cleared to bench press again so I will be doing that next training session.
    -I try to incorporate light (due to ankle) cardio just because I like doing the bare minimum amount of cardio to ensure cardiovascular health and competency during weight training.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -It is obviously way too early to tell if Ergobolic is having an effect, but yesterday was extremely stressful, so I'm hoping that Ergobolic kicks in rapidly enough to keep cortisol levels in check.
    -If ergobolic works well for me, I will consider using it during my "off period" of 2 months following surgery. Why? Because the studies on sutherlandia used rats with immobilized limbs and demonstrated that sutherlandia spared muscle when a limb is inactive. Well, that's essentially the position I will be in, so perhaps double-dosed Ergobolic shall be used down the line?

    Workout Notes:

    -Not pleased with my deadlift killer set as I was hoping for more reps, but I'm happy to at least put up a fight.
    -Weight after cardio was 172 lbs! EC was my preworkout choice, and I was dripping sweat by the end of the cardio, so it looks like I lost a decent bit of water.
    -Threw in a couple random exercises at the end because I wanted to try out some new equipment as I have just switched gyms. I'm currently going to LA fitness, and on Day 1 they told me I had to put my chalk in the locker because its use is forbidden.
    -I was recently cleared to bench press again so I will be doing that next training session.
    -I try to incorporate light (due to ankle) cardio just because I like doing the bare minimum amount of cardio to ensure cardiovascular health and competency during weight training.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -It is obviously way too early to tell if Ergobolic is having an effect, but yesterday was extremely stressful, so I'm hoping that Ergobolic kicks in rapidly enough to keep cortisol levels in check.
    -If ergobolic works well for me, I will consider using it during my "off period" of 2 months following surgery. Why? Because the studies on sutherlandia used rats with immobilized limbs and demonstrated that sutherlandia spared muscle when a limb is inactive. Well, that's essentially the position I will be in, so perhaps double-dosed Ergobolic shall be used down the line?
    So assitance work for DL for you is kinda like a "Boring but big" scheme with a bit more weight...You are a beast Cy seriously , 355x5x3 is awesome man oO I can barely do 225 (for real now , happened yesterday yay ^^) and you dare call 355 merely assistance xD Sweet man! Lets hope to see those cortisol levels at the minimum now! Formula looks solid , and if I know a guy who knows his science and is in tune with his body its you buddy! Good luck and awesome workout!

    As a brief background, let me start by saying that 5/14 was my first day getting back into the swing of things. With finals week and graduation out of the way, I have more free time to focus on BBing. This was my first workout using moderately heavy weight in 2 weeks, as I am going through a couple ailments right now: I have been recovering from a torn pec minor for the past 5 months, and I have numerous stress fractures in my shin/ankle area (a combination of genetics and cardio). At some point in the summer, I will have to have an operation done which will leave me out of commission for 2 months, so I had a rather poor mindset that why even hit the gym hard at all if I stand to "lose" much of my progress. Well rather than keeling over and bitching out, I decided I'm going to work my way back into my normal routine, and with the extra motivation provided by Ergobolic and this log, I will power through the next 2 months.

    Now that I'm bulking again without a caloric limit, I've increased the volume of my 5/3/1 sessions tremendously. My strength has dropped a ton on numerous lifts due to injury recovery and school (my bench press dropped about 50 lbs in the 5 months since my tear...chest has atrophied too which sucks ; DL dropped 30 lbs, Squat 30 lbs, Military Press 10 lbs), but with proper nutrition in place, I hope to make some strides.

    5/3/1 Macrocycle 5, A1 - Deadlift Day

    Weight: 172 lbs (more on this below, I think EC + Cardio shed massive amounts of water)

    Coop:

    Congratulations on your graduation!

    I am very impressed by your 5/14 workout. How long does that take you to get through? Given the health issues, the weights are especially impressive. My week #1 5/3/1 Deads started at 265#, and I finished with 5x10 @ 205. There was no way I could do Hanging Leg Raises after that...so my hat is off to you for knocking out 3 sets to failure after that kind of forearm stress!

    I look forward to reading more.

    Cheers.

    Thanks buddy. The sessions typically take about 2 hours including cardio. Your approach to 5/3/1 sounds great (boring but big I take it?).

    Day 3 (5/16)


    This is my first time training chest heavy in months. It went...alright.

    5/3/1 Macrocycle 5, B1 - Bench Day


    Weight: No weigh in

    Core Work:

    Flat BB Bench

    135x5
    155x5
    175x6

    Assistance Work:

    Flat DB Bench

    75sx5

    Pec Deck Cluster Sets

    145x11 -> 10 second rest -> 145x2

    DB Shrugs

    90sx10
    90sx10

    Cardio:


    LISS
    7.0 MPH, 0 incline for 20 minutes

    Workout Notes:

    -I didn't lose as much strength on my bench press as I had feared, but it's still not a pretty situation. HOWEVER, I had no chest pain or inability to contract throughout my movements, which is a first and is a HUGE plus in my books.
    -Just as a general note: on non-compound lifts (i.e. barbell curls), I go from my usual explosive tempo to a more controlled, slow tempo. I also do not use straps or a belt; chalk is my sole aid, as core stimulation/forearm development are big things for me.

    Ergobolic Notes:

    -I felt great at the gym today and even better throughout the day. Appetite is increasing but that's likely a function of the increased caloric burn from my workout. Overall, my mood is much better than it was a week ago.
    -Not noticing any body composition changes yet, but I did rapidly lose weight (likely water) the day I started ergobolic, so I'm looking forward to my next weigh-in to see if Ergobolic may exert some sort of diuretic effect.

    I just love your approach to assitance in the 5/3/1 its kinda like mine but with a bit more added to it , you kinda to the "Bodybuilder" Assistance work from the book and a sort of "Periodization Bible" by david tate. Keep it up buddy! You definitely are strong for not training chest heavy in a while though!!

    Pic is from 3 months ago. Since then I've cut for 2 additional months and bulked for 1 month. Gonna try to take a pic this week, I'm 6 lbs lighter than I was in that pic but I'm feeling stronger and fuller.
