    Formula X/Division 1 Log (sponsored)


    I've been pretty excited to start running this log. Many thanks to JD for being patient on my running this since I wanted to wait until after my wedding/honeymoon so I could get the most out of the stack. I tried to get bloodwork done before starting this stack, but my new doctor wouldn't do a test/free test/cortisol panel without specific symptoms warranting it. Bummer.

    To give you some background, I competed in 3 bodybuilding comps this summer, the last one being 6/16. I have reverse dieted my way back up to ~3500 cals (will get into diet later). I lost a bit of strength during my contest prep, so the first goal for me is to recover that lost strength. I have gotten a little back over the last month or so, but with being out of town for two weeks and only having been eating over maintenance calories for a few weeks now I can only do so much. Now that I'm home and I can focus on diet and exercise I expect much more.

    Diet:
    Diet is 100% clean foods, macros currently at 350c/350p/95f with one day 400c/350p/95f For meals 2-6 I try to have at least 2 veggies, and at least one green veggie to keep fiber high and get in as many micronutrients naturally as possible. Protein is a little high in my diet right now, I'm working on addressing that and bringing it down to about 300g/day.

    Sample day:
    Meal 1
    1 scoop whey
    140g oats
    2 whole eggs
    5 egg whites
    fish oil/cla

    Meal 2
    6 oz broccoli
    6 oz tomato
    2 tbsp natty pb
    6 oz chicken
    Meal 3 PWO Meal
    525g Sweet potato
    6 oz chicken
    3 oz beets
    3 oz spinach

    Meal 4 Post workout meal
    1.5 scoops whey
    500g white potatoes
    3oz chicken

    Meal 5
    6 oz broccoli
    7 oz ny strip/sirloin/london broil steak
    6 oz tomato
    4 oz eggplant

    Meal 6
    3oz spinach
    5oz beet greens
    3oz beets
    1 bell pepper
    7 oz cod
    4 oz eggplant
    misc green veggies (celery, romaine, cauliflower, cucumber, collard greens, swiss chard, iceberg, etc. whatever I have around)

    Training:
    Training for this logging period will be 5 days lifting, 2-3 bodyparts per lift as follows:
    Mon - AM HIIT Cardio | PM Back, Bis, Forearms
    Tues - AM HIIT Cardio | PM Hams/Calves/Abs
    Wed - Chest/Tris
    Thurs - Abs/HIIT Cardio
    Friday - Shoulders/Traps
    Saturday - Quads/Calves
    Sunday -off
    Each session is 75-90mins, 4-5 exercises per large bodypart and 2-4 exercises per small bodypart, .5-2 minutes break in between sets. Cardio is 25 minutes - 5 tabata cycles on the elliptical with 1 minute at a moderate pace & resistance in between each cycle.

    Injuries:
    I have an old knee injury that affects me doing certain leg exercises from time to time. I have a cyst in the back of my knee, and sometimes I tweak it and it gets inflamed to the point where I can't do any exercise that involves leg extension. I've learned how to manage it, but that involves avoiding lunges all together and not going below parallel on squats or any squat variation.

    Otherwise, I tweaked my back during contest prep and had to stop deadlifting. I have started back up again but not at the same weight as I was doing before. That will be another goal of mine to focus on is improving my squat and DL numbers

    I will be starting dosing tomorrow with my morning lift of shoulders/traps. Here we go!

    First couple days w/ division 1 and formula x...nothing too much to report. I haven't been sleeping well, I tried to start a stim break on Thursday...only lasted until I was driving last night at 11pm and I had to pop half a caffeine tab because I was literally falling asleep at the wheel. My workout yesterday was pretty ****ty, felt like I was running out of gas towards the end. But this morning's workout of legs was pretty solid. I took a 200mg caffeine tab with the formula x pre workout and got about 7 hrs sleep last night so I had plenty of energy. I have videos for deadlifts and front squats, if I can figure out how to post them I will throw them up here. Here is my workout from this morning:

    Deadlifts 395x5,4,4,5

    Leg Press (Full to the stops) 520x8,8,8; 530x8 (1.5 minute break between sets)

    Front Squats 195x5,5,5,5,4 (rest-pause set on 5th set)

    Horizontal Leg Press Tempo set (3010) 265x10,10,10 (Drop set on 3rd set)

    FST-7 Leg extension 140=10,10,10,10,10,10,10

    Seated Calf 235x12,12,12,12,12 (45sec break)

    Standing calf 300x8,8,8,8,8 (5 second hold @ top on 8th rep for all sets)

    Tomorrow is an off day, will post after Monday's workout of Back/bis/forearms

    I never really feel the need for a cheat meal...I'm not sure why. Compared to all the contest dieting I was doing this feels like cheating in comparison...so much more variety and quantity.

    I did a 2 week stim break in June, but I was upwards of 700mg/day of caffeine for the majority of my 8 month contest dieting so I probably need to break for longer...it just sucks royally. I'm hoping that 200mg/day will help bring my tolerance down a bit.

    Back on it this morning with Back/Bis. One thing I noticed right away when getting there is my vascularity was going crazy even before my warm up sets. Started with a great pump in my bis and forearms, I wish I could have taken a picture to post up here, but I was pretty sure if I did I would look like a complete douche to everyone around. Also, recovery has definitely improved along with sleep the past couple of nights. Yesterday was an off day, so I dosed the Formula X with dinner and had a great restful sleep. The workout was solid, had great pumps the whole way through and had tons of endurance.

    I dropped a full meal today in an effort to drop protein a bit. So I had 5 meals for a total of about 290c/90f/270. Carbs were a little low, especially for a 2x workout day. I will be aiming for closer to 350 grams of carbs for tomorrow with the same amount of protein .

    I am in the process of moving, so I am working out at a new gym so I can't really compare lifts at this point. Workout today was:

    Reverse Grip Pullups 1.5 minute break between sets BWx10; BW+45x8,8; BW+55x8,8,7 (last set rest/pause for 2 additional reps, followed by 3 negatives)

    T-bar rows 195x5,5,4,4,4 (Last set drop set)

    V Bar cable rows 18(weight stack was in single digits rather than pounds)x8,8,8,8
    Superset with Behind the neck pulldowns 10x10,10,10,10

    1 arm Rows Full ROM 125x8,8,8

    8x8 (30 sec breaks between sets, w/ 15 second flex) Super wide, neutral grip pulldowns 14x8,8,8,7,6,6,5,5

    BB Curl 95x6,6,6,6 (3 negatives after last set)

    Incline DB Hammer Curl 30sx8,8,8 (Last set followed by seated hammer curl 3 reps, followed by standing alternating hammer curl w/ twist 3 reps)

    Reverse grip BB Curl Tempo sets (3010) 65x10,10,10

    Preacher Curl Close Grip Extra Large EZ Bar 50x8,6,6,6,5,5,5 (Went a too heavy to start on this one)

    Also did evening HIIT tonight for 25 minutes.

    Hams/Calves/Abs tomorrow, my lower back is still a little sore from deadliest on Saturday but hopefully it will be good enough to go by the morning.

    Another 2 days, another 2 solid workouts. Pumps were better yesterday than today, but still solid. I've made a small dietary change in macros and meal timing. I'm doing 5 meals per day rather than 6, and macros are at 370c/90f/290p (this includes only a portion of fiber as it contributes to a smaller amount of calories, and I'm counting the 20g of BCAAs I have pre/intra/post workout and upon waking in my protein total). I feel more bloated during the day, I am hoping that I've done my calculations correctly so that I keep the vast majority of my gains lean. I weigh back in and do bodyfat measurements on Friday, so I'll make adjustments after those readings.

    Workouts were Hams/Calves/Abs yesterday, and Chest/Tris this morning. I had great endurance both workouts, yesterday I felt like I could have gone on for another hour. I was out of town and the gym I was at didn't have a GHR machine and the laying leg curl machine was pretty ****ty, which made me a little bitter but I made things work as best as I could. I will post videos up on youtube and link them here if I have a free second this evening.

    Hams/Calves/Abs:
    RDLs 325x10,10,10
    Good Mornings 160x6,6,6,6
    Seated Leg Curl 210x8,8,7,7 (Last set Drop)
    Seated 1 alternating leg curl 80x8;90x8,8
    Superset Seated leg curl w/ contraction hold 80x10; 120x6,6
    Laying Leg Curl FST 7 100x12,8,8,8,8,8,8
    Standing Calf 300x10,10,10,10,10 (30 second break b/t sets)
    Seated Calf 225x12,12,12,12,12 (30 second break b/t sets)

    Wednesday:
    BB Bench Press 240x5,5,5,5,5,5 (Last set rest/pause) 1.5 minute breaks b/t sets
    Incline DB Bench Press 95sx7,7,7,7
    Decline DB Bench Press 90sx12,11,10 (1.5 minute breaks b/t sets)
    Hammer Strength Decline Bench Press 90sx8,7,6 (1 minute breaks b/t sets)
    FST-7 Flyes 40sx9,9,9,9,9,8,9
    Decline Skullcrushers 70+Barx8,6,6,6
    DB Overhead Tricep Extensions 85x8,7,7
    Superset Bench Dips 85x6,5,5
    Rev Pushdowns 170 8,8,8,7 (Last set drop set)
    FST 7 Machine Preacher Extensions 95x10,10,9,9,9,8,8+2

    Tomorrow is HIIT then back to Shoulders/Traps on Friday.

    Yesterday I crushed abs and an HIIT cardio session, 5 tabata cycles on the elliptical with one cycle at a higher resistance than in any session previously. My lift of shoulders this morning was pretty good, but my strength sets were down from a previous lift. This could have been because my shoulder has been tight lately, or because I was working at a different gym than normal, but it's just such a bummer to not hit the numbers I'm used to hitting...especially on a bulk.

    Today was weigh in day, came in at 194.5 (was 194.5 last week) upon waking. About 3 minutes later I took a massive ****, decided to re weigh and I was at 193.5. I'm wondering if last week I was still loaded or holding water or what, I'm not sure but I definitely don't feel as if I'm losing weight. I had to rush out to meet clients, so I didn't have a chance to do bodyfat & take pictures...I'll do that tomorrow morning.

    I realized that I made a mistake with my BMR regarding my macros, essentially giving myself 100 extra calories per day than I actually burn. So starting today I dropped macros to 350c/90f/290p and will continue that Mon-Friday. I'm going to add 50g carbs on Saturdays (leg day) and subtract 50g carbs on Sundays (off day).

    Anyways, workout for today:

    Seated BB Military Press 180x4,4,4,3 (Last set rest/pause w/ fail on #3)
    Smith Machine Rear Military 115x8,8; 120x8,8
    Superset 45 degree Laterals (mix between front raises and laterals, with thumbs pointing up) 20sx10,10,10,10
    Hammer Strength Military Press Tempo Sets (3010) 190x8,7,6 1 minute break
    Leaning Single Arm Laterals 35x10,10,10
    Wall Front Raise 50x8,8,8
    FST 7 DB Laterals 35x9,9,9,8,8,8,9
    BB Upright Row 150x4,4,4,4+1 (forced)
    BB Shrug 505x10,10,10 (Last set drop set)

    Tomorrow is leg day, hoping to bump up my back and front squat numbers.

    Another solid workout today. Had a nice 1,300 calorie breakfast, waited about a half hour and rolled out to the gym. I'm thinking about dosing the form x a little earlier before my workout. I'm doing about 30 mins before my first working set right now, thinking about moving it back to 45-60 minutes if possible.

    For some reason the caffeine tab made my heart absolutely race, I felt cracked out about 30 minutes into my workout. It may have been the combination of caffeine and a bad night's sleep, but I felt like energy overload as I was headed to squats. Otherwise the form x and div 1 are solid. No GI issues with the DAA like I have read with some reviews. I have been doing 4 div 1/day split up into 4 doses w/ a meal. I'm surprised I haven't forgot a dose yet, I'm pretty forgetful with multiple doses like that.

    Workout this morning was:

    Leg Press 530x12,12,11 (Last set drop set; on last drop set rest/pause to 20 reps, no racking)
    Back Squat 225x5,5,5,5,5 (1.5 Minute Break)
    Front Squat 170x8,8,8,8 (Last set superset w/ back squats 3x170)
    Horizontal Leg Press Tempo Set (3010) 280x10,10,10 (1 minute break; last set drop set)
    FST-7 Leg Extension 135x10,10,10,10,10,10,10 (Last set hold contraction for 10 count)
    Seated calf 290x12,12,12,12,12
    Standing calf 305x10,10,10,10,10 (30 sec break)

    Tomorrow is an off day, carbs down to 300g (which will probably make me feel like I'm starving) followed by back/bis/forearms on Monday with some HIIT cardio Monday afternoon.

    Vids from the squats are uploading, will post links when they're done.

    Good to hear you had no GI issues, I feel bad for everyone who has that side effect from DAA.

    Had a weird couple of days. Was back out of town to where I am moving to, had a bunch of things to take care of moving my business to another city. Sunday was my off day, but I was outside flyering neighborhoods in the heat so I got a little activity in anyways. Yesterday morning was back/bis/forearms, and on my first set of bent rows I felt a shooting pain up my left leg. I guess my legs were still pretty sore from Saturday's lift, particularly from squats...not stretching after was probably a mistake. The pain was specifically in my left adductor, and it was hard to even walk around much less get up and down from a bench. I pushed through though, switched from bent rows to Tbar rows, then finished the workout like I normally would have. A solid lift outside of the leg thing.

    I was scheduled to do some HIIT cardio in the afternoon...wasn't sure if it was a good idea, but I hate missing workouts so I went anyways. I had a couple twinges but nothing major, and I got a solid 5 tabata cycles up on the elliptical. I took an extended period of time after to stretch and roll my hams/back/adductors then took a long hot shower when I got home.

    My leg felt far better this morning, almost like yesterday never happened. I was able to hit my ham/calf/abs workout hard. The gym I workout at now doesn't have a lying leg curl machine or a GHR, so I replaced GHRs with tempo back extensions focusing on pulling with my hamstrings. This sucks because I was really getting back into GHRs, and I can't find a way to create a makeshift GHR machine. Still was able to hit it hard and have a productive workout. My hams are already a bit sore!

    I forgot to dose my last div 1 pill yesterday, so I doubled up this morning pre workout. Hope that was alright!

    Had another pretty good lift for the most part today. Strength was there, a nice increase from the same lift a few weeks ago. However, On my last rep of my last set of dips I felt a little crack (like when you crack your knuckles) in my right shoulder and a slight pain. I tried to rest/pause another rep out, but my shoulder wasn't having it. I am getting pain when I am pushing from a stretched position, like in a bench press. However, it seems to feel more or less fine when pushing from a stretched position vertically, like in a military press. I skipped over my tempo sets of bench I was supposed to do after, and finished flyes and hit triceps, so it didn't affect my lift that much...and hopefully I'll still be able to lift shoulders on Friday, but this is still hurting in certain movements 5 hours later so I'll have to play it by ear. Luckily, even if I have to skip shoulders on Friday the shoulder shouldn't come back into play until I have to lift chest again a week from today (hopefully back/bis & deads/squats won't affect it).

    Lift from today:

    DB Bench 110sx8,8,7,6 (Last set drop, on 3rd drop set rest/pause to 9 reps)
    Incline BB Bench 210x5,5,5,5,5
    Dips BW+100x8,8,7,6 (pain on 7th rep)
    FST-7 Cable Flyes 40sx10,9,9,9,9,9,9+1
    Rev BB Skullcrushers 90x8,8,8,7
    Cable Pushdowns 190x8,8,8
    Superset OH Cable Rope Extensions 110x6,8,8
    Tricep Kickbacks (Normally do close grip bench here, shoulder wouldn't allow for it) 25x10,10,10
    FST-7 Machine Preacher Extensions 95x10,10,10,10,9,9,10

    I'm going to be able to rest the shoulder tomorrow as I have abs & HIIT cardio scheduled for tomorrow, I'll be icing for the remainder of day and get an epsom soak later this evening and will do the same tomorrow. I'll throw up another update on Friday.

    I wish the best on your shoulder, hopefully it's good by your next chest workout.

    Nice workout!

    Thx JD!

    Unfortunately my shoulder injury is still lingering...getting better but I had to skip my lift today which makes me pretty bitter since I have been having solid workouts and making progress. I have legs tomorrow, so my shoulder hopefully won't restrict me at all. Going to ice and soak over the weekend so I can hopefully stay on schedule and do back/bis on Monday. Crossing my fingers...

    Another solid workout today, though my shoulder is still not even close to 100%. Luckily today was legs and it felt great. The only negative was on my last set of deads I pussed out on the last rep I know I should have hit. Everything was up overall which is what I'm looking for. Forgot to dose my div 1 post workout...not sure why I have so much trouble remembering my mid day doses! Still have 3 more meals left, so not really a big deal.

    Deadlifts 395x5,5,5,4
    Leg Press 570x8,7,7,7 (last set drop set, on drop set #3 rest/pause to 20 reps)
    Front Squat 200x5,5,5,5,5 (Last set rest/pause)
    Horizontal Leg Press Tempo Set (3010) 270x11,10,10 (Last set drop set; 1 minute break between sets)
    FST-7 Leg Extension 145x10,10,10,10,9,9,10
    Unilateral Negative Leg Extension 160x8,8
    Superset Unilateral Leg Extension 80x5,5
    Seated Calf 290x12,12,12,12 (30 sec break between sets)
    Standing Calf 305x10,10,8,8,8 (30 sec break between sets; 15 second flex after each set)
    DB wrist curl 90x8,8,7,6 (30 sec break between sets)

    Off day tomorrow, then hopefully back/bis on Monday...going to focus on resting my shoulder tomorrow with maybe a couple epsom salt soaks. Not really sure what else to do to speed healing.

    I've gone through a lot of injuries now, had 2 shoulder injuries, only thing I could do to heal it is rest it for a couple months, then start doing rotator cuff exercises, then slowly started lifting again with light weight and worked myself up. Injuries suck and I really don't believe anything besides rest and therapy can heal an injury, I've tried everything from massage therapy, lasor therapy, chiro's, Tens unit and lots of ice. Just keep eating super healthy and your body will recover as fast as possible.

    Great workout!

    Oddly enough i didn't even feel anything on the front squats, felt it way more when tensing up and pulling myself down on leg presses.

    Back on it this morning after an off day yesterday (even though the majority of the day was spent packing up my apartment for the move at the end of the month). Back/bis this morning, went pretty well considering the shoulder issue, which is about 80% back to normal w/ a lot of ROM back and pain free. I didn't even feel the shoulder throughout my back exercises, and only just a bit when lifting bis.

    Regarding the products, I'm feeling like they have started to kick in with full force within the last few days. My workouts have been great, I've been able to push out more extra last reps w/ more energy and I seem to be improving from workout to workout. This makes me wish I had gotten bloods done prior to starting this stack!

    Today's workout:

    Reverse Pullups BW+80x 5,5,5,5,5 (Last set 3 negs, 2 1.5 reps @ BW, 2 reps @ BW)
    T-bar Row 180x8,8,8,7
    V Bar Cable Rows Tempo (3010) 220x8,8,7,7
    1 arm rows 140x6,6,6,5
    8x8 Super wide Pulldowns 180x8,8,7,6,6,5,5,5

    BB Curls 110x7,7,7,7
    Incline DB Hammer Curl 45sx5,5,4,5
    Rev BB Curl Tempo (3010) 70x8,8,8,8
    FST 7 Machine Preacher Curl 125x10,8,7,7,7,7,7

    My low back was still a little sore from deads on Saturday, but nothing too bad. I'll take another epsom soak later today after HIIT cardio so hopefully there won't be any problem for RDLs/GMs/GHRs tomorrow my for hams/calves lift. Currently icing my shoulder, planning switching my wed/friday (Chest/shoulders) to give my shoulder a little more time to rest before lifting chest again. I anticipate it will be easier to lift shoulders than chest due to the nature of the injury. Another update and hopefully more vids after tomorrows workout.

    Quick update after HIIT cardio. I really had no motivation to go tonight, I was still tired from my lift this morning but I motivated to get out to the gym and I'm glad I did. Great workout, it is feeling easier each time even though I'm making it harder every week. I'm curious to know if either of these products or the increase in test is causing increased aerobic capacity and/or increased recovery between sets. I felt like I could have easily gone for another cycle of intervals at maximum or near maximum capacity, even though I was drenched in sweat. Looking forward to a solid lift in the morning!
