HP's Summer of Alpha with Athletix Sports Stack

Page 2 of 8 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Yeah, my 2012 Dodge Ram took major HAIL damage Sunday. Now I have to take it in for repair. Luckily it's a company truck. Anyways, yesterday we got our power back company and at home. Everything was all good at home. At work, I spent the entire day chasing power problems and our measurement department is spending the weekend doing hand collections since we still have these issues. I did all I could to get things in order on my end.

    Also, I was up since 3am with my son because my wife had no sleep in the last few days. A sacrifice so I could go to the gym without any fuss after work. I made it there although I was a bit spent, I did work.................

    Day 7 JULY 6, 2012

    WORKOUT

    T-BAR ROW: 2 plates x 10
    3 plates x 10
    4 plates x 10
    5 plates x 10
    6 plates x 8
    7 plates x 4 (PR)

    CLOSE GRIP BENCH: 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x5, 405x1 (done before, but done on very little sleep)
    INCLINE BENCH: 225x10x2 sets
    PULLDOWN: 200x10x4 sets (REAR, STACK)
    LOW CABLE ROW: 200x10x4 (STACK)

    *NOTE
    FORMULA-X is awesome. I can't get over how good it tastes and how well it mixes. Also, please do not under estimate my volume and yes, I did 405 at the end of the week, close grip fashion. Add this all up. In two short weeks what I've done bench wise, including comp. on June 23-24. Add up the workouts and how close the loads are. SUNDAY JUNE 24 Comp. 375, 405, 425 next reverse bench June 29 @ 365, 355, 345, 335, 325 then July 2 reverse bench 375, 365, 355, 345, 335 and today's workout. I plan to do a reverse on Monday 385, 375, 365, 355, 345 with a 315 burnout. WTF DOES THIS MEAN? Well, I would say after Monday Licogenix-Division 1-Formula-X been having a positive effect. What do you think? Salute!

    Yeah, the weather is freaky down here lately. The storm that rolled in around 2 A.M. was nothing nice.
    I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.

    Yeah, hot as h^*, here also. I'm begining to see some positive results, I bumped the Licogenix to 6 to see where these others were mentioning drying out. I haven't felt no such way. I must be an exception. I even been using the third dose on an empty belly. I can take anything without having to eat. The first two doses are done with meals. I imagine I'll run out of it first. Got to go, watching baby sleep, so he doesn't roll of the couch. Wifey, up all night again. When she wakes I'm going to workout.

    I didn't get to make it to the gym Friday. I have missed doing my wheels this week. I plan to try and get it in today. Next week I should be able to get on track. Holiday is done and vacation is over. Fully recovered. Let's get it!

    Dosing on most supplements all together I'm sure would have to be dosed higher for you since your a big guy, one guy did dose Division 1 at 8 caps a day because he was around 280.

    I wish I knew this in the begininng. I thought about it but left it the same. It's on now.
  9. Day 11 JULY 09, 2012


    WORKOUT

    BENCH BENCH: 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 385x5, 375x5, 365x5, 355x5, 345x5
    INCLINE BENCH: 225x10x2 sets
    Cable Crossovers: 3 Way: 100x10x3
    Cardio: 30 minutes 3.1 [email protected] incline PWO

    *NOTE
    Done as stated. According to my calculator this will place me at a max of 435. I know calculators can give you false indications. The one I use gave me what I needed to make an attempt at my last meet. So stay tuned tonight for my update. Did I mention I'm loving this stack!

    Got to get my mind right before going to the gym. Over the weekend our AC unit has been out and it has been over 80 degrees in my home. This is not good when you are taking care of a wife and baby. I'm pissed becuase I asked a tech to come out last month when it was acting up and he stated he could find nothing. SO I asked a friend and one of his coworkers, who is qualified in AC units to come and look at it. Luckily the heat is dying down so turning it off last night in hopes that maybe the unit has frozen lines, could unfreeze. We shall see.

  10. Freezing lines is a sign of low freon in the system.
    It is not the kind of car you drive. It is whether you can flip it.

  11. I thought that also but the tech who came by said there was plenty in there when it first started.

  12. Great numbers on the bench!

    Thank you, I look so forward to Mondays. It kicks off my week. Next week I plan to hit a reverse of 395x5, 385x5, 375x5, 365x5, 355x5 then deload. This will be a PR in my pyramid. I have never hit those numbers before in a regular workout. We shall see how well this stack lives up to the billing. I'm going to push it to see just how well it works in combined strength and recovery. Stay tuned.

  16. Day 12 Wednesday July 11, 2012


    Workout:

    Squats: 315x8 (4 Sets), 395x2

    Deadlift: warmup, 385x1x1, 315x15

    Leg Press: 275X20

    Note* I love squating and Deadlifting on the same day. I have been doing it for over 1.5 years. I usually split my back into an upper and lower day and hit upper/chest Monday and Legs and Lower Tuesday. Why? A program I found on T-nation called Twelve Weeks to a Better Deadlift. This progarm raised my Deadlift from 405 single to a 565 Deadlift in one year ( Jan 2011 to Jan 2012 ) which I pulled in a pureathleticpower local meet.

    Anyways, I raised the amount of Division 1/Licogenix to 6 caps daily due to my size. Formula-X has been bumped to two scoops for half gallon I drink. This makes it 4 scoops daily. Recovery is awesome.

    Why so much? What ingredient are you trying to maximize? You could do one scoop and add BCAAs, maybe more stims...product is pretty much good as is as far as DAA and LCLT.

    The basic premise was not to increase it for the stimulants at all. Actually I have a very, very high tolerance to stims. I can take any supp on an empty and carry on with my day. I have taken other supps with some stims which weren't meant to mix together and been fine. The idea was to drink a gallon first half of day with 2 scoops and a gallon second half day into the next morning. Meaning, the second half begins intra workout throughout night into next morning. I have it in case I wake up in middle of night and drink the rest. I will only utilize 1 scoop in the AM and 1 scoop in the PM.

    As noted above I'm not trying to maximize anything ingredient wise. The product is great as far as I'm concerned. Tell me how many people you know who doesn't experiment a little to see what they can tolerate or helps them better than what is listed on the label. If you didn't then why have people use the products at all outside of purchasing it yourself. If I followed workouts according to how one person wrote it and never mixed, matched, added and subtracted what worked or didn't then I wouild look like everyone else who is fat and dumpy @ 300+.

    Formula-X contains no stims, only thing that will boost energy per say is the NAT, but thats a natural energy/aggression boost. I think you may be getting the DAA mixed up with DMAA, two different things all together. The DAA is D-Aspartic Acid, it's a testosterone boosting amino acid thats been shown to boost testosterone by up to 42% in normal healthy men. I'm not worried about stims, but I am worried dosing that much DAA may lead to toxicity.

    I'm still utilizing it as directed on the label so no worries!

    Do you have any advice on stopping a 5 month old baby who doesn't want to sleep, from crying even though he is tired? I've been up since 3am, took him on a drive tio McD's to get coffee and gas, he's smiling at me. So we drive furthur up the road to the next town (25 minutes away) and finally he falls asleep. I get home and leave him in the car seat, while he slept quietly (for 4hrs). This lil dude doesn't like to sleep at all.
