  1. Athletix Sports Sponsored Log Round 2


    Thanks so much to JD and Athletix Sports for the chance to log again!

    I loved my run of Formula-X last year, and am looking forward to trying out their AI: Licogenix, for not 1 but 2 bottles! So far this is the last product they have out that I have not yet tried.


    So far the only AI's i have tried were Erase and Erase Pro. EP was down right crazy in its ability to dry you out, so it will be interesting to see how these compare. All accounts i have read so far is that Lico will not be has hard on the joints, (EP really needed to be dosed every 2 days or even every 3 to keep from super drying you out)

    I will be following the dosing on the label to begin with. While I am sure i will be adding more cardio as time goes on, for now there is going to be no change in diet or routine. Ultimate goal is still Recomping.

    I took one serving last night and one this morning, will report back later on any observations!

  4. Base weight is 168.5 body fat I would say is still in the 12%range


    Weight is down from last week. But that could be anything. Water weight or what ever. Will see what happens next week after a full week on Lico

  5. Next to no power at the gym. Solid work out either way though

  6. Power outage still in full force at the gym never sweated like that. Heat may have been of some help though. Felt strong throughout and my dip weight shot up like crazy this session

  7. Can't say I feel much yet. No soreness to speak of. Maybe slightly thirstier. And needing to use the bath room a little more that usual. Those could go hand in hand. Or I am drying out some.

  8. Happy 4th!

    Hit the gym just now. Power is back on. Liked it better the other way. Pump felt good lifts went up a touch. Within normal progression. Recovery is OK. Not feeling sore. But my skin is a bit drier.

    How long were you using the Creapure before? I use Creatine up to 6 months, but it's prob best to cycle it 2-3 months on and a month or 2 off.

    A break don't hurt, but strength normally goes down a couple reps when getting off creatine, at least for me it does. I'm sure another month won't hurt if you have already been on it for a year lol

  15. About a week in thoughts:

    I do think I am drying out a tad - will wait for the weekend measurements to confrim if that is the case.

    In terms of soreness or achey joints. none to mention so far. Besides the odd arch issue on Monday and Tuesday (which could easily be shoe related) any soreness is pretty much normal DOMS nothing bad or unexpected.

    Progression has been really good (from before starting this log) on a few lifts, goblet & front squats, tricep dips, rows. Thinking this week instead of going for max weight for 8-10 clean reps I will try backing off on the weight and going for slower reps.

    See if that can't shake up my maxes for benching and whatnot. In terms of keeping my heart rate up, or having muscles under stress, I cant think it would detract from anything, if anything it will probably increase everything?

  16. Great update, I find 2 weeks in vascularity shoots up big time.

    aha nice new avatar pic

  17. Cheers! never had much with vascularity before (any forearm popping pretty much goes away by the time i get back to the locker room) - definitely interested to see how it goes.

    I am tempted to bump up to 6 per day this weekend - and see how that flys. Probably will try it starting Saturday

  18. Welcome to Friday
    Nothing new to report still no soreness or achey joints. Will be bumping up to 6 per day tomorrow to see if I notice any difference. If not or if joints start to act up I will drop it right back down to 4 per day.

  19. My joints got a bit sore on 6 caps, but most people don't get bad joint pain from the anti-inflammatory benefits.

  20. Weigh in

    Ok weird again up 2 pounds. Waist I would say is the same?


    Notes though. I am definitely holding less water. Hmmm. Will. Be adding cardio in again slowly.

    Unless this is really apming up the lg if set up. Which it could be. I'm at a loss.

  21. I will sub in this

  22. Started the 6 caps today. Good workout. Nothing too crazy though. ArA came today getting that all lined up for the future.

  23. Recovered well enough from yesterday. Very nice pumps. Lower body felt solid. Fat is def coming off legs and such first but I am making progress. If I can keep gaining while losing even the slightest weight I will be stoked.

  24. Sounds like it's going pretty good

  25. Slept horribly last night, maybe 3 hours sleep tops. feel fine tough.


    Nothing to report on soreness or anything, minor DOMs from the weekends training, but nothing bad at all or unusal and they have all pretty much faded today..

  26. I hate training on low sleep like that, can't recall ever having a good workout on less then 5 hours of sleep.

  27. thankfully tomorrow is training day

    honestly though i feel really good - wide awake - actually odd.. not wanting to make a habit of it, but i am doing fine so far. more energy than usual at this time of day truth be told.

  28. Well thats good your feeling wide awake and not down, maybe you hit your REM right away last night lol

  31. getting pumped for the gym today. just need for this day to end already

    ALcar came last night (sorry SNS got it cheaper elsewhere) so i am set. Cant say i feel any difference on the 6 caps. So far i would say stick to 4 for most people, but dont hold me to that as of yet

    How days now has it been at 6 caps?
    Core Nutritionals Representative

  33. tonight will be 5 - so 4 and 1/2 as of this moment

    also I am hovering around 170 so those that weigh more or less than that YMMV

  34. Lifting was good yesterday - no real strength jumps to note.
    did some PWO cardio and i could only make maybe 5 minutes. Could be the heat or what ever but i was so ichy. legs core chest, really weird. got off and was fine by the time i got to the locker room. was not going fast only 4mph or so..

  35. Ahh nice log brother I'm in fo sure!

  38. Not much to report back - lifting sessions were good - nothing out of the ordinary for strength or endurance. Normal progression. Pumps i felt were slightly better but nothing to crazy. Soreness is still at a minimum, your standard DOMS here or there.

  39. could you post what your workouts consist of?
    Here is my loghttp://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-reviews-logs/216779-bigguy-vs-wilpit.htmlhttp://supplementreviews.com/users/mhseaver670/reviews

  40. Following basicially the Classic Steve Reeves 3 day Fullbody split:

    Squat (generally Goblet or Front Squats)
    Rows (depending on the day i go between Yates rows, HS behind the neck, seated cable etc)
    Bench (db bb or hs)
    Shoulders - Arnold or Military presses for the most part (on sundays Deadlifts replace shoulders)
    Tri's Dips are my bread and butter, but I do sub in Skull Crushers and CGBPs to keep things fresh.

    I pretty much try to stick to big componds most days - though Saturdays I may sub in some iso work as Sundays is my hard day so to speak.

    I try to stay in the 6-10 range. If I can do all the sets at 10-12 I up the weight the next go around.

    Really trying to keep it all as simple as possible. Seems to work the best for me, progress is being made for the most part everywhere very steadily bench has and will always be my sticking point, but its moving as well.
