    Hey guys! I wanted to put up a log showcasing two new products on the market by SNS. X-Gels is their new ArA product, and I am very excited to see this in action as I have no prior experience with ArA.

    This log is unsponsored. My goal here is recomposition down to 250-260. I am down from 294lbs on June 21st, down from 340lbs 50%+ BF in 2009. I am eating 1800-2100 calories daily, protein (2-300 grams daily) comes from alr humapro, and tilapia. Fats (<80 g) from fishoil, olive oil. Carbs (<100g) from Southlands Glycomyx and brown jasmine rice.

    My starting stats:
    Age: 23
    Height: 5'11
    Weight: 278lbs
    Bodyfat: too damn high (20%+)
    Training style: intensity, heavy weight, and intensity!

    Lifting stats
    Incline bench: 405 1RM
    Lat pull: 305 5RM
    Squat: 495 2RM
    Deadlift: 405 1RM (can't seem to get them going!)
    Barbell Military: 315 3RM

    Other supps used: I am a supplement whore by definition. With that being said ill try and not forget any.
    SNS FXT (mornings as a wake up)
    SNS ALCAR (2g PWO)
    SNS Agmatine powder (1g PWO)
    CL glycergrow (1g PWO)
    CL greenmag (1 serving PWO)
    CL OT (3 morn, 3 night)
    CL Fishoil (4 ed)
    ALRI Humapro (2 serv. Pre and post)
    ALRI Chain'D out (2 serv. During)
    Southland glycomyx (.5 serv. Pre, post)
    DS CRAZE (2scoops pwo)

    X-gels (8 pwo mon-fri)
    Bulbine (1 morning, 1 pwo)

    There is more, but it is stuff I don't really use everyday... ill put it in the log if I do.

    As you can see, SNS is a staple brand for me, and I do truely feel that they make some of the BEST products available and keep them dirt cheap. I have a lot of respect for them not selling out to higher margins, and 3rd party testing all their batches for purity.

    Ill post up before pictures tonight (don't laugh!) And first day workout notes.

    Thanks! And if anyone has questions/suggestions I am all ears!

    If last nights workout is of any indication, they'll treat me very well!

    Day 1: (7/12)

    Felt pretty good today! I didnt mention prior, but I implement an IF diet structure. Calories came in at 1810 and was able to grill up some top sirloin (omnomnom) fish gets old after a while
    I about molested the UPS man when he showed up with the X-Gels! I quickly destroyed the box and tossed back 6 x-gels, agmatine, gms, bulbine, creatine, alcar, and craze because it was time for HEAVY WEIGHTS!

    Hit some chest and back supersets, and noticed a pretty bad ass pump. Probably could have cracked a walnut between my chesticles.

    Bike: 10 minute warm up

    Incline bench
    135x25 warm up
    185x20 warm up
    225x15
    275x10
    315x9
    335x4

    Superset with hammer strength lat pull 180x15x4

    Decline bench, wide grip, full stretch
    315x12
    365x9
    365x8
    365x6

    Superset with hammer strength pull overs
    180x12x4

    Hammer strength high row
    270x15
    365x11
    365x9
    450x5

    Hammer strength row
    270x10x4 (started to gas out a bit)

    60 smith incline. Slow stretch
    225x12x3

    Flat bench dumbell flys
    80x12
    85x9
    90x7

    Pretty good workout! Had only about 90g carbs and really started to feel it after the supersets. I drink about 16g bcaas during and that helped. I noticed I got SUPER warm during the workout and was drenched in sweat. I don't know if its too early for x-gels effects, but that was definitely noteworthy.

    Be back later tonight with day two update and pictures!

    I know my body really well. I know it sounds cliche but with my supplement experience, I know what does what. There is nothing that I'm using right now that would have a similar effect of the sns products.

    Sub'd. I have respect for anyone who posts pictures online. You have a good base there and you can see muscle shape as well. You definitely don't look your weight. I wish you much success. I will be following.

    Day 2: Arms

    Feeling great today! Really productive day... but I couldn't wait to go kill arms with the help of x-gels and bulbine!

    Preworkout:
    Shake of:
    2 scoops humapro
    .5 scoops glycomyx

    3 scoops glycergrow
    1 scoop green mag
    2 scoops craze
    1 bulbine
    8* x-gels (HELL YEAH!)
    *no agmatine* wanted to see what the x-gels did on their own!

    Intra:
    2 scoops amino energy
    2 scoops chain'd out

    Bike 10 minutes (warm up)

    Barbell curls:
    65x20 warm up
    85x15
    95x12
    115x9
    115x7

    Superset with HS Dips
    270x15x4

    The pump after this superset was STUPID. I couldn't believe what was going on.. and it only got more pronounced and actually almost painful!

    HS preacher
    70x15
    70x15
    90x12
    95x11

    Superset again with HS dips
    360x10x4

    ...right about at this time it felt like my skin was going to tear. Literally! Super BADASS!

    v-bar
    250x10x4

    Overhand grip barbell curls (french curls?)
    65x12x2
    85x10x2

    Rope extension
    120x12x4

    Dumbbells hammer curls
    45x10
    50x8x3 (meaning 3 sets)

    SICK SICK ARM DAY! I can't say it LOUD enough! The pump was pretty much pornographic!

    Looking forward to a heavy leg blast tomorrow!

    Anyone have any ideas for a HEAVY triceps lift without a spotter? I love skull crushers, but the weight I do makes me nervous without a spot lol

    Great stack man. I'm really jealous! Can't wait to get my hands on some Xgels myself. I heard the pumps are as sexy as they get.

    Also respect for putting the pics up brother. I have done the same before and it's tough to do. Good double biceps pose though, you will be a beast one day if you keep at it

    I'm interested in these X-Gels you speak of. As far as the before pictures go, shame on anyone that has anything negative to say. Coming down from 340 is quite the journey, and you can just tell with the flexed poses that there is a TON of muscle just dying to burst through. Besides, those numbers you have thrown up for personal maxes would have a lot of us here snapping ALL our **** UP. It's very intimidating, and hella impressive bro!

    Get to it. You are heading down the right path. Interested to see your outcome!

    So I need to take a hell of a lot more to reach my intended goal of 2g. What's crazy is I'm already feeling the effects, and it has been underdosed! So needless to say, it should be some good stuff when dosed right!

    Weighed in at 274.6 this morning! Hell yeah!

    Took my bulbine this morning and about 45 minutes after got kind of a rush...? Like uh.. well to keep it PG, the wife is a happy lady! I'm REALY starting to feel bulbine in that department!

    Numerous supersets hahaha!

    Anyway, I'm feeling awesome today! Very confident! Going to spend some well deserved time with the family and kick back. Going to hit it HARD tomorrow, adding in some more cardio and hitting single body groups daily, focusing on compound lifts. Should be killer, and I want to see how close I can get to 270 by Sunday!

    MANDATORY CHEST MONDAY! Full 1.5g dose!


    Just got back from a working chest. My spotter bailed and I was fasted, but it was still a sick lift.

    Upon waking/Preworkout:
    1 bulbine
    4 ALCAR
    6g GMS
    15 X-gels
    2 calcium tabs
    2 scoops craze
    caffeine tab
    2 scoops Humapro/1 scoop BCAA

    NO AGMATINE OR GREENMAG... Wanted to feel the X-Gels more accurately.

    Okay, its official. This bulbine is kicking hard. I felt so damn confident in the gym today.. almost aggressive? Had insane tunnel vision and had this "this weight AINT ****!" type attitude lol. It rocked!

    The X-Gels are no joke at 1.5g. Seriously guys.. the pump was unreal. I looked like a different person. I will take pictures on Thursday before and after I lift arms so maybe you can see the effects.. really no agmatine or pump products needed here. Its really that crazy!

    I had to lift machines which sucks but hey, at least they are hammer strength.

    Cardio: 10 mins before, 30 mins after lvl 12 80RPM

    Decline HS (wide grip, slow negative, explosive eccentric)
    2 plates each side (180lbs) x 20 (warm up)
    3 plates each side (270) x 15
    4 plates each side (360) x 12
    5 plates each side (450) x 6 drop set to 4 plates x8 drop to 3 plates x 9

    Incline HS (med grip, slow neg, explosive eccentric)
    3 plates x 13
    4 plates x 9
    5 plates x 5 rest pause x3 drop set to 4 plates x6

    Flat HS (this machine blows..awkward angle for a flat bench)
    2 plates x12 slow stretch 2 second hold at contraction. 4 sets

    Pec Dec
    190x15 (2 sec hold at contraction)
    235x13
    280x11
    295x9 (whole stack holy hell. PR for sure!)

    The pump was pretty damn overwhelming guys. Also, that warm effect was back but waaayy more intense. I was sweating like a fat chick on prom night no joke. I noticed A LOT of elbow, and shoulder soreness at the start of the lift, but became less noticeable as the lift went on.

    I like the hammer strength machines for the stretch they allow... way deeper than standard barbell.

    However, barbell seems to stimulate more strength and muscle growth.. I guess its good to switch it up once in a while!

    I've always avoided the HammerStrength machines and I'm not sure why I have a phobia associated with them. I may have to give them a go at some point just to change things up and see how they treat me.

    They're kind of cool.. the decline is my favorite. The stretch is ridiculous compared to barbell. The incline isn't bad either but damn do I hate the bench press and military press ones. Awkward as all hell..

    Oh, and the hammer strength row machines are staples for me.. those things have added so much size to my back. My gym only has up to 125lb dumbbells so I grew out of them awhile ago for rows.

    But the Iso-lateral high row is such a badass machine!
