    Summer Fun with Primordial and ForeRunner


    Primordial/ForeRunner Summer Fun

    Thanks to ryansm for the discounts & BGRigatoni for the dosing protocol and encouragement.

    Weeks 1 – 8: AndroMass: 6 caps upon waking, AndroHard: 3 caps upon waking, AndroDrive: 3 caps upon waking

    Weeks 2 -7: Alpha Bulk: 8 caps at eight hours apart. 4 @ 9 AM and 4 @ 5 PM: Pre WO

    Weeks 9 – 12: Sustain Alpha: 6 pumps – 5 on/2 off, Toco-8: 1 scoop per day, EndoAmp Max: 1 scoop per day, TCF-1: 5 ml per day

    Additional supplements: Creatine (Pre/Post WO), Taurine (4 grams Pre WO), Vitamin D (5000 IU), & random multi-vitamin

    Current Stats: 6’4”, 36 years old, weight will be with first additional post.

    Goals: Add more size, become a bit more solid, and outgrow my keg (this shall be my theme this year). Hoping to bring my bench up and hitting the 1k+ lbs. leg press that has been eluding me the past few months. In reality, I’m going to work my ass off for every little gain I can earn this summer and in the end I won’t be surprised that this is more of a recomp than anything else.

    Log Updates: Weigh in will be on Fridays. Friday Updates will be reflective like my other logs. Workout logs will be a cut and paste job from Fitocracy (insert flame here). I will chime in if something interesting happens during the week or if I hit a new PR.

    Workouts: I’d like to run a 5 on/2 off this summer, M – Chest/Tri’s, T – Back/Traps/Bi’s, W – Quads/Ham’s/Calves, Th – Shoulders/Traps, F – Arms/Calves. Cardio, I really hate it but will get a minimum of 20 min on the bike following each workout.

    Diet: Edibles will be as clean as I can be. Healthy snacks throughout the day with my daughter. As much protein as I can get in each day. Minimum of 3 liters of water a day. And yea, cheats happen, so what? There is always room for a Carl’s Jr. or Chipotle run when needed. Not to mention that summer weather means good BBQ whenever I can.

    For any and all that tag along this little journey, thanks in advance.

    First post should be sometime tomorrow.

    Just a couple of observations...

    1) Must eat something very quickly. Getting queezy after about 10 - 15 minutes after ingestion sucks.
    2) No grapefruit burps. I'm actually missing them.
    3) Thirst has gone on a rampage. Doubled my water intake yesterday and was still thirsty.

    Looking forward to this next week... Even with the wife home to disrupt my routine.

    Yea, if my math (and yours) serves correctly, it should hover right about there for weeks 2 - 7. Hope you log the Alpha with the Anavar, I'd like to see what you're able to do with that stacked. I'm thinking that this winter I'd like to run a full FR line-up just to see how my body reacts since I already know that I respond pretty well to PP line-up.

    Notes:
    Strained my lower back two weeks ago, thought things were doing better... Ended up straining it again doing yard work yesterday afternoon. Went for a quick, light leg workout today. Feeling pretty good with very little strain put on my back. Really miss not doing squats since I just added them to the routine about 4 weeks ago. Will be going light for the rest of the week to help the healing process. If things don't heal up after this weekend, I may switch my routine to a 4 day split next week to get an added day of rest.

    I know what you mean. When I was 21 I had back surgery - on L4/L5. I am always so afraid to put my back out. Exercises like squats, stiff leg deads, deads, even bent over barbell rows I sometimes sacrifice weight due to FEAR of it going out... Even when you tweak your back it certainly takes time to heal doesnt it.

    Yep but it's not going to stop me from moving forward. Too much progress the past two months to stop. And I've been waiting to run the majority of this stack since January.

    Good news is that squats I can do but not as heavy as I could 15 years ago. Deads, either way, and bent over rows have always taken a toll on my back. I'm really hoping that the family comes through for Fathers Day. Requested a new weight belt and wraps so that the old man might be able to feel young again, lol.

    Yea, sits there and waits. And when you're not looking. "TWEEK!" and you're feeling old for a few weeks, lol.

    Week 1 Reflection:

    Strength: I broke through a big (long) plateau a few weeks ago and since that breaking point I’ve managed to get my strength up each week. I’m sure once things get rolling I’ll see some good jumps in what I am lifting.

    Recovery: Nothing to really notice. I’m a bit sore the next day but that’s been the norm for the past 8 weeks.

    Pump/Vascularity: Been Agmatine free for 2 weeks now but the pumps I’ve been getting this past week have been very near what I was feeling. They just don’t stick around as long.

    Mood/Aggression: Mellow and pretty happy about things.

    Energy/Focus: No outside stims other than coffee or iced tea the past three weeks so my days start out very slow. Focus has been definitely there though in the gym and when working around the house. Not sure if it might be the Drive or just a placebo effect from starting something I’ve been waiting to do for the past 6 months. A huge plus is that it’s really helped get me through the 30 minutes of cardio after each workout.

    Noticeable Changes in Appearance: Nada.

    Libido: No change. Been pretty good the past 8 weeks so if something changes I should be able to notice positive/negative changes pretty quickly.

    Odds ‘N’ Ends: Dreams… Crazy the first few nights like I had with Intimidate. Sleep though has been decent but not feeling totally refreshed in the AM. The past two nights I’ve had the night sweats. Appetite has been normal. Thirst has died down due to me drinking 1.5 to 2 gallons of water.

    Other than that, nothing extraordinary; from other logs I’ve read, much of the PP line-up doesn’t really kick in until week 3 or 4.

    Notes:
    *Workout started out uber-crappy and I wasn't able to focus until my 3rd exercise. Then it was on! Pumps were amazing today, forearms felt like they were going to burst.
    **Weight up +3 which isn't bad. I thought it was going to be much more due my wife being on vacation and the ****ty job I've done watching what I have been eatting with her around. Going out to eat at least once a day for the past two weeks and gaining only 3 lbs is something I will not complain about. Next week and for the foreseeable future, I'll be able to prepare 90% of my meals.

    Day 9 & 10: Off days.

    Ah rest, relaxation, and Father's Day... Which means I get to do house and yard work. At least the critter came through with a new weight belt and some new wraps. Next week should be fun putting those to use. Back will love the belt. Going to feel sorry for my back and traps though.

    Note:
    Not a touch of sorenesss today, definitely no DOMS. Feeling pretty solid this morning and hoping that this is a sign of things to come.
    Broke down and bought some Craze last night and will be adding that to the pre-WO mix once it arrives. Focus is great but I'm lacking in the kick start area. I'm going to really need a boost the next 8 weeks as I'll be spending 10 hours a day with my 3 year old while the wife goes to work. I'm going to lose my mind but it beats the hell out of teaching summer school!

    If so, Happy fathers day. If the former, then props for taking care of dad.

    Thanks HTS.

    I am the father and I am doing the yard work per what I actually wanted to do today. My old man moved from CA to Arkansas of all places so no doing the fixer uping at his place!

    Anywho, Happy Fathers day to you all and all of yours.

    Chest/Tri's tomorrow, early evening. Hoping I can get settled into a good summer routine this week with the 3 year old... I am SOOOO looking forward to the summer of 'WHY?'.

    Just a Monday morning mini update.

    I am generating some serious heat over this past weekend. Not to mention downing 1.5 to 2 gallons of water per day.

    Woke up this morning feeling dense, hard, thick. If this keeps up, I can only imagine what I will feel/look like at the end of this run.

    New gym time of 5 PM. Wife went back to work so it's me and the critter. Will log W.O. this evening.

    Possibility but I wouldn't hold my breath. If I do, it will be a pic from where I started a year ago with a comparison of where I ended up in the course of the past year. But if things turn out exceptionally well, I do have a starter pic to go along with a finishing.

    Warning: If I post pics and you post somewhere that you saw Big Foot, you would be right.

    Chugged about 1/3 of a gallon and got all nice and queezy. Took a good 15 minutes to get my head on straight, stomach in check, and back into gear. Was weird, this has never happened. But since I am lifting heavier and its been pretty toasty the past few days, it doesn't surprise me.

    Going to hydrate really well pre W.O. so that it doesn't happen this afternoon. I want a good strong leg workout today so I can try for that 1K leg press that's been unattainable the past three months next week.
