Hit quads and calves today. Haven't really hit quads in almost a year as I had 3 knee surgeries last year and it still is iffy for exercises. I just recently was cleared to work the joint with weights.
Focus/Energy: Felt in the zone while hitting the weights. Was a good feeling as I was uncertain how I'd perform doing a bunch of exercises I haven't done in a long time.
Pump: Pump wasn't noticeable in my legs but it never is. My calves did look big and pumped though before cardio.
Endurance: Felt good and surprisingly did more than I expected
Overall: Still loving this stuff everyday. I don't know what else to say. It's just awesome
Hack squats 245 4x12 (really can't do this with my knee still)
Front squats 225 4x10 - never done these before but it felt so much better on my knee
Leg Press 270 4x10
Calf raises 130 4 x failure
seated calf raises 90 4 x failure

Day 7 was a full rest. Swimming in the pool for 30 minutes to recover muscles but keep blood flowing.
Energy/Focus: Never wanted to stop. Was in the zone again. I love this focus. I can't imagine how much it'll suck when I run out.
Pump: Thought my arms were going to explode. Biggest pump I've ever felt lifting arms. Unfortunately I had to go out to dinner right from the gym after and didn't get to take pics at home.
Endurance: Few PR lifts and I felt like I could keep going. It was a great workout and felt amazing. Muscles failed longed before my energy started to dip.
standing ez curl 50 1x15, 80 4x10
Hammer curls 30 1x15, 35 1x10, 40 2x10 (PR)
Cable curls 35 4x10
Tricep pressdown 130 4x10
Skullcrushers 70 4x10 (elbows can't really take this workout for some reason)
Close grip bench 205 3x10 (PR)
Cardio: 45 minutes [email protected]% ---I really think the focus is important here. I HATE CARDIO and this makes it go by so fast.

Day 9: Cardio, day was too busy to lift
Day 10: Shoulders
Took a scoop on an empty stomach. A little too much BA tingles, didn't really like it.
Focus/Energy: Definitely stronger on an empty stomach with a full scoop. This was the first time I've done it that way. Really hit hard. Hit a few PRs on my shoulder today.
Pump: Pump was solid. Same as always
Endurance: As I said, hit PRs and felt like I was unstoppable in the gym. Then intense cardio session.
Overall: Hit PRs and felt stronger than I ever have for shoulders. Didn't want to leave the gym. Seriously was trying to find lifts to do without overdoing it because I just wanted to keep going,
DB Military Press: 50's 1x10, 55's 2x10, 60's 1x10 (PR)
Lateral raises 30's 4x10

I've never been big on caring about the pumps, not that I don't like them, theyre just not my priority. I think the biggest seller on this is the focus and increases feeling of strength. You wanna just lift nonstop and throw weight aroundOriginally Posted by howwedo107

How's the prodigy treating you today?
08-13-2012, 11:13 PM
Overall: This is still my favorite pre-workout. Felt strong as hell and never wanna leave the gym when I take this. Always trying to find one more exercise to throw in because I just feel so alpha and focused. This will become a staple in my workout regimen

How's the gym basement? That's how I started out just a few dumbells and a bench with leg ext on it

It's a four stack machine, actually very nice. Never really use it. It was my parentsOriginally Posted by howwedo107
Just got a root canal and the pain was flaring and couldn't open mouth beyond a half inch (think the nerves from the shots were aggravated)

Sorry for the break. In law school orientation, so updates are gonna be as much as possible.
Pump: had to stop today a little early because they were too strong. It started getting painful and restricting my ROM.
Focus: Energy and focus was NUTS. Been going nonstop for 3 days and still had energy to lift on 3 hours sleep.
Endurance: broke PRs on lifts today and felt like I was able to go forever. Wouldve tried if the pumps didn't hurt.
Overall: great workout and this stuff still is the sh*t.
Bench 275 3x10
Incline 250 3x10
Pec dec 200 3x10
Tricep pushdown 150 3x10
Kickbacks 40s 3x10
Ended triceps with 2 lofts because my arms felt like they were gonna burst. Painful and little ROM

Still in orientation all day so this is really killing my workout time.
Hit bi/back today on 1 scoop. Hadn't eaten all day because apparently 50k tuition doesn't warrant lunch during orientation.
The gym at school SUCKS. Weights everywhere, people doing curls on the bench, screaming during 185lb benches like they're gonna explode. I was fuking annoyed and may have to find a gym to pay for because this **** is not gonna fly.
Pumps: couldn't bend my arms because my biceps were so swollen.
Focus/energy: with almost no calories intake I still lifted like a beast. Hard to focus intently when I can't find a damn plate but it went well.
Endurance: unfortunately I can't comment much because im also on cycle so dunno what's causing endurance gains. But the past 2 weeks of taking this has led to me to believe that this definitely works here
Overall: love the BA tingles now. I was a monster in the gym and people were looking at me. This is my preworkout and I do not see that changing anytime soon. Stuff makes me feel great.
Standing curls 40s 4x10 (PR)
Preacher EZ curl 85 3x10
One arm preacher 35 3x10
Lat pull down 200 4x10
Seated cable rows 230 3x10
Straight leg deadlifts 225 4x10 (really need to work on form before I add more. It's easy but my form sucks when I go too heavy)
Prodigy is just awesome. Makes me feel "on" even when I'm not. It's like 1-2 hours of alpha-male, euphoric dbol feeling.
08-21-2012, 11:45 PM
Awesome update man I feel the same the focused feeling is like no other to even compare it to glad it gave you monster pumpsOriginally Posted by jamesm11

Sorry for the delay. law school is hard haha.
Pumps: Great pumps for shoulders. legs i don't really know about because I don't feel they're as noticeable
Focus: Ripped apart the gym. Found myself just staring at the ground between sets, anxiously waiting for the next set. Really didn't notice everyone around me
Overall: Great day of legs and shoulders. Felt strong and motivated.
Deads 405 4x8
Leg press 320 4x15
Front squats 245 3x7
Calf press 120 4x20
Seated military press 60s 3x10
Side Laterals 20s 4x15
Reverse Pec deck 100 4x10
08-26-2012, 09:06 PM
Pumps: Great pumps for chest and triceps. felt like an absolute animal. Hit PRs and had great intensity
Focus: GREAT. Was so focused on lifting that my friends told me I looked angry the whole time (i guess that's very intense then)
Overall: Pumps were the biggest they've ever been. Felt like I was going to explode
Pushdowns 150 4x10
Kickbacks 25s 4x15
Tricep press 140 4x10

I don't normally buy many supps lately due to budgets but I'm getting rid of protein powder in favor of this. Chicken and white rice post- workout will have to do. This is just too fun.

this is what I love to hear!!! I really hope people start catching on that prodigy certainly is no joke and powerful !! Great log thank you so much for the review so farOriginally Posted by jamesm11
