    Sorry man but I knew I had to snap a pic once I had it. If you look close you can see one bite already gone.

    Ya at first I was like wth is this??? Then I tried it and was like "wow". Kind of like a sweet potato casserole you have at Thanksgiving I guess.


    Also should note that was the only off thing about my diet pretty much all week, including the rest of the day. No idea how the macros were but I have been real exact all week and my sister is going out of town for the week so it was a family and lifting partner lunch extravaganza.

  6. Sept. 16:

    Off day. Nothing really to report. Sundays are complete off days for me. Was tired as hell so I took a huge nap then watched some pretty poorly officiated football all day. O well, lifting tomorrow.

    Sept. 17
    Pre workout was 3 scoops Protocol + 1.5 scoop Ultima. Also had .5 scoop Ultima + 1 scoop Protocol during workout.
    Training:
    5/3/1 Deadlift Day

    Hit the usual foam rolling treatment, some stretching for the hips, and a good jump rope warm up. Also did a little glute activation in between warm up sets.

    Deadlift:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets of 3 with 305 the last set.

    Was feeling a little off today. Strength was great and the weights felt easy, but stomach was upset and head was foggy.

    Assistance work:

    Squats:
    5 sets of 10 at 185lbs superset with 5 sets of 10 on Ab-wheel Rollouts

    These sets were pretty rough. Went straight to the ab-wheel after the squats and only 60s rest between that and the next set of squats. Pump and pain level were pretty high but it is feeling easier than last week already. Boring stuff but big stuff.

    Conditioning:
    Hit the Prowler for 35 yards with 45s rest between sets for 6 sets. I feel by the time I get to this after the short rest on my BBB assistance work that I am already huffing a little bit and this just finishes me. Felt easier than Friday (idk why that was insanely rough) and had a massive pump going on. Since I am bulking I should probably quit the conditioning tho.

    Diet:
    No crazy burgers this day. Made some awesome Turkey Tacos tho. Forgot to snap a pic...crap. About to eat the leftovers in a minute so maybe I will pop a picture!
    ~3250 Calories 260/365/85


    Supplement Notes:

    Totally unrelated but probably will post a Protocol review soon. Used it for awhile now and absolutely love it. One of the few things I will give as a recommendation to others.

    My TP should be here tomorrow. With its arrivial I will make my log a little bit more precise and break down the exact timing of it and each of my AB doses. Can't wait and it is almost time.

  7. Nice! I have been a Protocol user since its creation. Love the stuff.

  8. Great diet, training and physique man! pleasure to read your log, well done.

  9. Sept. 19

    I may be slightly sick because I had some stomach irritation again today before and during my workout. Didn't cause any problems with my lift but it is real random and I have been tired the last several days despite great sleep. Probably my reaction to this awful sickness the kids are passing around here (hardly get sick myself and when I do it is usually just minor fatigue and mental fog). Will keep note on how this continues this week. Weight was up slightly on the scale as well since starting.

    Pre workout was 3 scoops Protocol + 1.5 scoop Ultima. Also had .5 scoop Ultima + 1 scoop Protocol during workout.
    Training:
    5/3/1 Bench Day

    Did some shoulder warm ups and used a golf ball to hit some trigger points in my back before starting today.

    Bench:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets of 3 with 205 the last set.


    Assistance work:

    Myo-rep assistance work today. Added weight/reps to everything I did today. Was supposed to stick in the 15-20 rep range for the "activation" set today, but on a couple exercises I went above that (despite increasing the weight this week as well ). Reps were up on everything and had a pretty good pump going on. Great workout overall. Hit Lat Pulls, Overhead Press, Barbell Curl, Triceps Extension, and Seated Cable Chest Flies.


    Conditioning:
    No conditioning today.

    Diet:
    No crazy burgers this day. Made some awesome Turkey Tacos tho. Forgot to snap a pic...crap. About to eat the leftovers in a minute so maybe I will pop a picture!

    Supplement Notes:

    Something was sitting on my doorstep when I got home from work today.

    Now that it is here we can really kick this thing off. Details will be increased and I should be dropping some more input based on how I feel as things ramp up. First, initial review (couldn't resist having it with my last meal of today).

    Test Powder Initial Review (Taste/Mixability):

    Mixed up 2 scoops (measured on scale for full serving which took a little more than two scoops) in 8 oz of ice cold water. Mixability was pretty much perfect and I didn't notice any residue/flakes of any kind. Taste was decent (not bad at all just not the best I have had). Nothing amazing, but I typically don't like Fruit Punch flavors. With that said it is slightly sweet with no bitter or herb-like bite or aftertaste. Should not be a problem to drink, it just isn't on par with the last FP I have had recently...Alphamine.

    Overall can't say anything about it other than I am excited to finally get started and that taste should not be a problem with this product.

  10. Subbed man can't wait to see the results

  11. Also, liking the workout set up man. I am starting a cycle of 5/3/1 with this log as well. Im jealous of the prowler too. I hate that thing... but i love it too

  12. You know I'm in for this!

    Glad to have you all on board.

    Sept. 20:


    Off day from the gym. Felt pretty tired a little after noon today and took an epic nap. As I type this I feel pretty alert though so hopefully I will be tired later so I can sleep at a regular time.

    Took my Test Powder with 2 caps Anabeta and a meal today at noon. Enjoyed drinking it as I finished making my lunch. Unfortunately the grill was out of gas today so I had to improvise with my turkey burgers, but I made it work.

    Weight is up at a decent level right now but I am feeling a little soft compared to the end of my cut (profile pic). I have never been that lean before and it is depressing losing even a slight amount of that hard/dry look, but strength has been improving and muscle fullness is up.

    Overall not much to report today other than some light cardio (jogged some and had to demonstrate some exercises, etc, etc.) but otherwise just a normal off day with work. Found a new burger place to compare to my last burger pic and may hit it up next Wednesday (ya I planned out the exact day and time...).

    Going to sound like a nerd...but the only reason I know the exact time and date is because I make my weekly run to the comic store Wednesdays after my lift and the burger place is in the same shopping strip.

  16. How's it going here? I've been off the forum lately dealing with real life crap.

    nah man, actually it sounds like you're pretty passionate about your interest, and i think that's cool on any level.
    and as far as scheduling things - i jest about anality, as there is a picture of me next to the word in Webster's.

    Fair enough. In my defense I have been away from here for a few days and only got in on Bolt's log because he likes to get an early start. By early, I mean that he starts a log once he applies for a promo hoping to one day have something to write about!

    Lol I have always begun my logs with all the stats, pics and all on the day I make first dose or day of ar***** ;p Celly tradition!

    Back to Bolt!! Don't derail this thread like you do with all Dewey Sheesh!

    Ya its part of my personality as well. It is hard in a world full of people not nearly as exact and anal as I am!

    My supplement stash is only *****ed by my true weakness....my addiction to comic books.

    No worries about the derail.

    I honestly feel that logs are a pretty big responsibility and not something to be taken lightly. Shouldn't slack off because it is a great opportunity awarded by the companies that grant the logs. I always feel bad when I see someone get selected and slack off or not even complete a review.

    On a side note...this thread was glitching the hell out of me at home. Tried to post and lost my daily update. Saved my second attempt, but I am at work now and don't have it so I will post it when I get back home tonight if this thread allows it.

  26. Yeah AM has been funny for me today too bro. I totally agree with you on the fact that some people don't take logs serious enough...it is rather annoying seeing a company put their hopes in someone for honest and continuous feedback and only get back a mediocre attempt! I just like starting it on day one hehe, and was kinda busy to pre-start the thread ! Now lets see if I can get closer to a chiseled physique like yours with this run!! Any progress counts in this decade-long battle we all wage against our bodies to sculpt them into perfect masterpieces!!

    Ya I don't apply for logs very often. I try to be nice but most things look like crap and I am very picky when it comes to things I want to try...Speaking of decade long battles, look at this nonsense that was at my desk when I got to work. Trying to tempt me!

    Sept. 21:

    Slept like crap last night so I was fatigued this morning. Took 2 Anabeta with 2 scoops Test Powder then had my Ultra Peptide + GlycoMyx combo that I often drink a couple hours pre-workout.

    Pre workout was a little different due to this and other factors: 3 scoops Protocol + 1 serving Craze. Combo wasn't the greatest taste wise but seemed to do the trick for training.

    Training:
    5/3/1 Squat Day

    Hit the usual foam rolling routine and am not feeling any real trigger spots lately. Feels awesome. Jump roped for a good warm up and did some hip mobilization before diving into my workout.

    Squat:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets of 3 with 275 the last set.

    Felt great today. Strength was up and the weight increases each set didn't seem to alter bar speed. If I was pushing it here I could have possibly hit some rep PRs.

    Assistance work:

    Deadlifts:
    5 sets of 10 at 205lbs superset with 5 sets of 10 on Hanging Leg Raises

    Added 2 sets of 20 reps for Reverse Hyper superset with seated Calf Raises.

    Felt huge today for some reason. Whole body was pumped despite no upper body work. Awesome feel to this lift session.

    Conditioning:

    Took 1 serving of Ultima + 1 scoop Protocol + 1.5 additional grams Leucine before this session.

    Due to work schedule and other issues I hit my conditioning in the evening as opposed to directly after my lift. May try this for a week or two and see how it differs. Did 8 trips about 35 yards with the prowler for the main portion of this session. Also did some dynamic warm up, rotator cuff work, and activation work (sprints/jumps) to get myself ready to go. Short and to the point (only about 20 minutes total), but was still brutal. Totally soaked in sweat by the end.


    Diet:

    Not done yet but aiming for:
    ~3200 Calories 260/380/70


    Supplement Notes:

    I don't know if maybe I was sick and I got over it last night, but I felt pretty invincible today. No real stomach issues and great energy despite lack of sleep (Craze helped with this). Should note I have been taking some Craze in the mornings when I get up early if I need something to get me going, so I doubt it is why I am feeling this great, but it probably is additive to it. Idk if the Test Powder is kicking in or I am placeboing but I feel amazing so far today. Felt like I was sticking my chest out during my lift, which sounds retarded but I felt good.

    2 caps Anabeta were also taken with post-workout meal. Stuff may be kicking in extra hard right now. Weight is up, but as opposed to how I felt a little soft yesterday I feel leaner today. Probably mental due to this top of the world feeling I have right now, but I'll take it.

  28. Shout out to ZiR RED. I had some questions on TMG and he gave me some prompt answers. This is a very interesting ingredient in my opinion and is dosed effectively at 2 scoops of Ultima. It is also included in the formula of Test Powder and therefore I will be getting a pretty hefty dose of it through this combo. While there are too many other things included for me to try and single out benefits of the higher dose, in theory it may be beneficial.

    Also, check the link for a great thread with studies/discussion on this ingredient. Of key importance is some of the info on the actions of TMG as a methyl donor and helping with the effectiveness of DAA (hence its inclusion in the TP formula IMO). Click the link for much more in depth info:

    Betaine As An Ergogenic Aid

  29. Sept. 22:

    Always love getting to sleep in even an hour more on Saturdays. Woke up fresh and ready to go.

    Took TP + 2 AB with usual morning shake.

    Pre-workout: 2 scoops Ultima + 3 scoops Protocol

    Training:
    5/3/1 OHP Day

    Some shoulder mobilization work, but not much warm up. Was all ready loose and warm from work.

    OHP:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets of 3 with 120 the last set.

    This is probably my absolute worst exercise. Neglected these horribly and only added them back in several months ago. I say that because today this actually felt good. First time that OHP hasn't felt hard no matter what weight.

    Assistance work:

    Myo-Reps:
    Inverted Row w/ Rings 21 reps + 16
    Bench Press 145lbs 20 reps + 12
    Triceps Extension 25lbs 18 reps + 15
    DB Curl 25lbs 17 reps + 15
    DB Upright Row 20lbs 20 reps + 15 (R), 19 reps + 15(L)

    Goal was to up the weights or difficulty and stay around 15-20 reps during the activation work. In general that was accomplished but strength on the Bench Press was good so I got the same despite increased weight. Thought the Inverted Row w/ Rings would be harder so I either got stronger or it was easier. Arm work was brutal. My arms feel weak as hell on these high reps and compared to old training logs this is pitiful (but I haven't been doing dedicated arm work or high rep work for prob. 5-6 months together). :excuses:

    Overall felt pumped to an extreme level. May dial the calories back slightly as weight was up more at this point than I was anticipating. No matter how I rationalize it I know at this level in my development anything over a certain "limit" usually isn't lean mass gain, but strength is feeling great.

    Conditioning:

    No conditioning today.


    Diet:

    Not done yet but aiming for:
    ~3100 Calories 260/360/70

    About to go make some Sloppy Joes!


    Supplement Notes:

    May be nothing or could be something, but I have had some real freaky dreams the last few nights. As in weird and creepy, full of paranoid crap. Not necessarily nightmares but definitely not good ol times.

    Felt awesome again today, mood is definitely elevated, but I was also angered quickly. That isn't really a new thing as I have some anger issues that I have calmed dramatically the last year or so. They still pop out at times though and today was one of those times, so probably not supplement related.

    Had some good vids today but my lifting partner is crazy and half the things he said and filmed were so non-lifting related that posting would be questionable.

  30. i don't dream much (well, i don't remember too many of them anyway) but i hate it when i do have weird/bad dreams that i remember..not cool.

    workouts looking good man, nice format here too (as usual).

    boltster runs such nice clean logs.
