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

    boltster runs such nice clean logs.
    Thanks snag.

    Had more crazy dreams last night, don't really remember them just remember waking up to pee and thinking what the heck....

    Sept. 23:


    Complete off day. Will be enjoying chilling out, reading, and then watching some NFL this afternoon.


  2. Sept. 24

    Felt tired this morning. Stayed up to watch Baltimore win last night and honestly I feel old! At 10 I was so weary, but I wake up easily in the mornings just takes a little time to get going. Trying a little different approach today:

    Cut the GlycoMyx out of my shake this morning and went with Vanilla Iso-100 + Strawberry UP 2.0 in Coconut Milk. Love the sweetness Iso-100 added to this shake. Popped 2 AnaBeta with this meal.

    Pre-workout: 1 serving Craze + 1 scoop Test Powder 1 hour before lift. Drank 1 serving (2 scoops Protocol) 15 minutes before lift.

    Training:
    5/3/1 Deadlift Day

    Hips felt great today. Loose and ready to go. A little more pain rolling on the foam roller today in my IT band compared to last week, but nothing major. Rolled that crap out and was good to go. Was chilly in the facility today so I did all my warm-ups in sweatpants and hoody. Was nice and warm by the working sets and felt great. I love warming up in sweats when it is cold opposed to it being hot in the gym and being warm before actually "warming up"...

    Deadlift:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets with final set 1 rep at 320.

    Pitiful to call this a single. Was beyond easy. O well slow and steady wins the race! (I guess..)

    Assistance work:

    Squats 5 sets of 10 at 185lbs superset with Ab Wheel Rollouts 5 sets of 12-15.

    Squats felt pretty easy today as well. Therefore I improvised and sets 2-5 were done with no rest at top or bottom trying to keep a constant tension with a controlled eccentric and concentric. Pump was painful and I regretted this decision, painful but not difficult.

    Cut it short there to get out of the gym at a good time.

    Conditioning:

    1 scoop Test Powder + 1 scoop Ultima + 2 scoops Protocol ~45 minutes before this session.

    10 trips of 35 yards with the prowler. Started with walking then slowly picked up the pace by the last 5 sets. No full "sprint" but deliberately powerful steps trying to drive the knees hard. Rest was determined by how slow my workout partner was pushing the prowler back. Felt real easy today.

    Diet:

    ~3100 Calories 260/375/60

    Put a new tank on the grill and made some Turkey for today and tomorrow:

    Supplement Notes:

    Really enjoyed the Craze + Test Powder combo. Taste was actually pretty good and had a good sense of euphoria and well being for quite some time afterwards. As noted strength was high today. Workout felt like the easiest of this log so far.

    Dreams are still beyond creepy. I don't recall them all but the ones I do.

    I have been sore beyond belief during the past several workouts, but I haven't been doing this kind of training recently so the extra volume/type of training is kicking me all over the place. Not feeling run down though.

    Got this in the mail today:

    Would love to add this in but don't know if I want to complicate the log. Unless I want to make this a MicroTestify log as Natty would call it.

    Either way will probably try this stuff out in a couple weeks as this log finishes up/gets closer to the end.

    Overall really enjoying this combo so far as we get close to one week in with both products.

  3. Solid workout. Deadlifts, squats, and the prowler all in one day is pure hell on the legs. I finally got a Foam roller as well so I can't wait to start using it

    Ya can be awkward learning to use it right at first, but it is great once you get the hang of it. Can't imagine not using it anymore.

    Old isn't the word I am looking for. I still feel young but I have a time limit on my day before I become decommissioned.

    I grill several times a week and turkey is probably the number one protein source in my diet.

    Sad to hear that. O well will still try it out eventually, but ya Craze has made most stims seem lacking to me.

  8. Agree with you about Craze. That stuff lights me up. Micro is not a stim based performance enhancer for a pre. It shines more in the endurance/pump arena.

    That is what I was hoping for out of it. Never used Arginine Nitrate but have experience with other Nitrate products and half enjoyed them (and I definitely love Citrulline and Agmatine).

  10. Then Micro will be a goody for you. Me, I need a little more kick in the ass to get this old horse running.

  14. Sept. 26

    Got a ton of sleep the night before and felt awesome when I woke up.

    Pre-workout: 1 serving Craze + 2 scoop Test Powder 1 hour before lift. Drank 3 scoops Protocol 15 minutes before lift/on the way to the gym.

    Training:
    5/3/1 Bench Day

    Shoulders are feeling the best they have in awhile. Got a decent amount of shoulder prep in before doing my warm up today.

    Bench:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets with final set 1 rep at 215.

    Paused at the bottom and fired up. Felt easy today. Strength is definitely going up.

    Assistance work:


    Myo-Reps for upper (actually have my journal today ):

    Military Press 95lbs 12 reps + 9
    Lat Pulldown 120lbs 19 reps + 16
    Barbell Curl 75lbs 15 reps + 12
    Rope Extension Plate 15 16 reps + 15
    Cable Flies Plate 11 15 reps + 8

    Felt really good today. Strength was definitely up as I added weight to everything and had very minor decreases in reps. The only exercise that I struggled with was the Cable Flies. By the end of the workout I was winded and tired, but still managed decent numbers there. Pump was huge.

    Conditioning:

    No conditioning.

    Diet:

    I am not entirely sure. Went to another burger place and had a great burger and sweet potato fries post workout.

    Other meals were high protein and moderate carbs.


    Supplement Notes:

    Sleep is really great right now. I feel the Test Powder is doing something to help with this. Sleeping deeply and waking up rested. Makes starting the day feel great.

    Definitely feeling more muscle fullness and chest is looking to have filled out slightly (over the whole duration of this log not just this last week with Test Powder added). Have put on a little more fat at this point in my bulk, but with burgers and such usually once a week I can't complain.

    Strength is definitely trending up. While I am not going for rep PRs or hitting new maxes the weights I am handling are feeling easier than the week before even if they are heavier.

    Weight is up the last couple weeks as well. More than I was shooting for but there will be plenty of time to lean out soon.

    Also, note that I have been taking 6 AnaBeta per day usually 2 with Pre-workout meal, 2 with Post-workout meal, and 2 with last meal of the day (just pointing this out as I haven't been posting when I take them daily).

  15. Sept. 28

    Really getting great sleep which has me waking up before the alarm every morning.

    Pre-workout: 1 serving Craze + 2 scoop Test Powder 1 hour before lift. Drank 3 scoops Protocol 15 minutes before lift/on the way to the gym.

    Training:
    5/3/1 Squat Day

    Had a little more build up to roll out on the foam roller than the last couple weeks, but it is lower than a couple days ago. Had to break the lacrosse ball out again for some of the work.

    Bench:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets with final set 1 rep at 295.

    Felt like a joke. May have to increase estimated max more than the usual bump because I wasn't even struggling at 295.

    Assistance work:

    5 sets of 10 for Deadlifts at 205 superset with Ab Strap Leg Raises.

    Strength is feeling awesome. While the way my work is laid out I don't do anything that isn't planned, the weights are feeling much easier than a week ago. Due to this I shortened the rest times to just long enough to stop breathing really heavy and got right into the sets.

    Conditioning:

    Was attending something this evening so I did the conditioning right after my typical lift. 6 trips walking with the prowler 35 yards. Technically I started with a slow push and increased speed each trip until I was pretty tired and then called it a day. More mentally challenging than anything.

    Diet:

    Due to insanely random work issues, going somewhere tonight and car issues I ended up not having all the food I planned to have for the day.

    Ended roughly at 2700 cals at ~250/315/50.


    Supplement Notes:

    As I keep noting sleep is awesome right now. Not even waking up to pee at my usual time (typically I wake up once to hit the restroom 4-5 times a week). Feeling rested upon waking.

    I do seem to be more tired by the end of the day. As I type this my eyes are drooping and it isn't even that "late". Not really fatigue either just like I am getting into a earlier sleep pattern.

    Weight is stabilizing and maybe even down a 1lbs this week. I feel my chest definitely looks fuller, yet more defined. From a purely BROscience observation this tends to happen to me. When I take certain test boosters I tend to appear leaner in the arms/shoulders/chest, yet not anywhere else. Maybe fat is being redeposited in different places or w/e or my mind is just always tricking me. Either way I wouldn't say my body fat percentage is down, but I feel I look "better". Guess that is all that really matters tho.

    Craze + Test Powder is epic. Sends me a great mood throughout the day (workout around noon). Not necessarily a longer energy duration than just craze but definitely improved mood than when used alone.

    Finally as noted before the TP + AnaBeta combo seems to be doing wonders for my strength/ease of moving the weight.

    Now time for some sleep before work tomorrow.

  16. I would say that my TP/AB stack is one of my favorites to date. Like you say, you just feel on your game. Now I need to throw some Craze into the mix! Lol

  17. I'm waiting for some Craze to arrive after a 2 month break from it. Can't wait to add it pre workout with TP, which has me in a great mood already.

    Ya it is an awesome combo for sure, can't downplay the importance of a strong mindset especially before hitting the weights. The Test Powder has really kicked things up a notch this last week. Interested to see how the rest of the tub goes.

    Off to work for a little bit then hitting the iron.

  19. I'm so late to this log but just read it all and you're doing hell of job with it. I've actually been looking in to test powder lately so this log is exactly what I needed. Keep up the good work man.

  20. Sept. 29


    Pre-workout: 1 serving Craze + 2 scoop Test Powder 1 hour before lift. Drank 3 scoops Protocol +.5 severing Craze 15 minutes before/while I warmed up.

    Training:
    5/3/1 OHP Day

    Did some shoulder warm ups and general dynamic warm up just to get the whole body warm and ready to go.

    OHP:
    3 warm up sets
    3 working sets with final set 1 rep at 130lbs.

    As with the theme this week this felt easy. Normally the heavier sets on OHP seem to be hard even if I get the reps. Today this last set moved up pretty effortlessly.

    Assistance work:

    Myo-reps as usual.

    Inverted Row w/ feet on Physioball 15 reps + 15
    Bench Press 155lbs 14 reps + 12
    Triceps Extension 25lbs 20 reps + 15
    DB Curl 30lbs 13 reps + 12

    Also did a series of varies band raises/pull-aparts for some rear delt/rotator cuff work.

    Conditioning:

    No conditioning.

    Diet:

    Will edit at the end of the day. Aiming for 3100 calories today similar to usual macros.


    Supplement Notes:

    Ok not sure exactly what the deal is buy weight is down a pound from last week. Could be due to a very slight decrease in calories or possibly some water loss. I may be experiencing the whoosh right now. Was feeling a little puffy last week and assumed it was fat gain. Today though I was looking leaner (or possibly dry) and chest was definitely looking more defined than last week. So either water or fat loss, either way looking better this week IMO.

    Sleep and mood are at some pretty high levels right now. Feeling great (and they could be both intertwined in their effects). Work and life have been a little more stressful lately but noticing no real mood issues other than pissed off more lately (due to the life circumstances) but overall letting quite a bit of it roll off.

    Muscle fullness is topped off right now. Last night after my last meal I was feeling really pumped and felt like I wanted to lift. Of course I didn't but it was a cool feeling.

  21. Also should note when I say I look leaner today that I mean in the ab region, calves, and shoulders as well as my chest. Not just the arms and chest like I was noting yesterday. Could just be some water loss, etc. so we will see how it continues to play out (could be due to slightly different marcos yesterday etc etc).

    How much leaner can you get before you look like a poster for the neuromuscular system?

    Also, who is Marcos? Is he your lover? I want to know what he did differently do you yesterday to make you look leaner.

    Unfortunately I was not as lean as my avatar at the start of this log. I am still lean just not that lean right now.

    Hate when I spell things wrong....but Marcos may have worked some magic!

    uhh


    i entered to say nice work..i'll leave quietly.

  28. Oct. 1

    As usual by now, Pre-workout: 1 serving Craze + 2 scoop Test Powder 1 hour before lift. Drank 3 scoops Protocol 15 minutes before lift/on the way to the gym.

    Training:
    5/3/1 Bench Day

    Deload week so the numbers on the 531 exercise are nothing impressive so won't post them.

    Assistance work:


    Although it is a deload week the goal right now is hypertrophy so the assistance work will be maintained (and then bumped up next week).
    Myo-Reps:

    Military Press 95lbs 12 reps + 12
    Lat Pulldown 135lbs 16 reps + 16
    Barbell Curl 75lbs 16 reps + 12
    Rope Extension Plate 16 14 reps + 15
    Cable Flies Plate 11 17 reps + 12

    Not really feeling beat up or anything so everything is going right as planned. Got an awesome pump today and wasn't as winded as usual doing these sets. Didn't bump up the weight on most of these as I wanted to still stay above 12 reps on the activation set, but will be moving up next week and continually for the next month. These heavier sets on the Myo-reps seem like they are going to be hell.

    Conditioning:

    No conditioning.

    Diet:

    Aiming for 3100 calories today. Since it is a deload I will be a little more relaxed on this. An extra little bit of whatever I am eating if I am still hungry or craving it. That doesn't mean I will be cheating daily, just may be higher on calories than this last week or so.

    Supplement Notes:

    As noted above felt really good and less winded today, so the rest intervals were shorter. Strength once again was great. Pump was pretty impressive today as well.

    Vascularity is also up lately. Been seeing random calf veins all day long in the legs, especially prominent after meals. At my current level of body fat this isn't unusual, but it is standing out more than it had been in the weeks prior.

    Should note that it appears that I may have my first "side" appearing. I am breaking out on the chest/upper traps more than usual. I noticed this towards the end of last week but decided to wait and see if it continued. A little worse than last week, but nothing crazy and will keep note on how this changes.

    Random Notes:

    Adapting well to the program and weights/reps continually moving up. Really plan on pushing the 3 weeks after this week pretty hard. This week is a "deload" but the way I had this set up I am following a little higher on the percentages than a typical deload. Plan to really push this next month (as long as I still feel good) pretty hard and take a bigger deload in November if warranted. Listening to my body right now it doesn't really appear to want to deload at all.

    Also, I didn't skip the deadlift workout but am switching the order around a tad. Today was Bench, Wed. will be Squat, Friday OHP, and Sat. will be Deadlift. Did this because my workout partner plays some rec. league bball on Friday nights and the workouts were leaving him pretty beat in the lower body by game time. This made today a little more rough as I had some residual soreness, but don't feel it hampered the lift based on how it went.

  29. Update for 10/01 and 10/02:

    Calories yesterday ended up being around 3100 as planned, but might have been a bit lower. Came home to Hamburger soup and had several bowls and it filled me up pretty good but the stuff isn't very calorically dense.

    Today was an off day and I was busy running around for work between several places. Also found some time to fit in a trip to see Looper at the movies. I really enjoyed it with the sci-fi plot and felt it was worth the trip (but I go to the movies at least once a week even to see some pretty crappy stuff ).N

    Not that sore today from yesterday's lift. Feeling really fresh as well. I know I mentioned how I was having to take stims most of the mornings earlier in the log due to fatigue, but as this log has gone on that has lessened. Feel great every morning and definitely getting great sleep. Not much else to report today other than I did almost go into a full rage fest. Usually very rational but sometimes when beyond pointless stuff happens (like at work today...) I get "blurry" thoughts and risk becoming pretty irrational and angry. Oops. Didn't go crazy though, but definitely some added stress this week.

  30. Oct. 3

    Went with 1 scoop Craze + 2 scoops Test Powder + 1/4-1/3 scoop Alphamine 45 minutes pre-workout and 3 scoops Protocol 15 minutes before.

    It was my last scoop of Craze from this Grape tub and I wanted a little bit of an extra kick so I decided to try a little bit of Alphamine mixed in. Figured I was going to try this combo down the road some time and since I was out of any more Craze it was the perfect opportunity to test and make sure it didn't give me any bad reactions at low dose. Won't be using that combo anymore during this log though.

    Luckily I did get a new tub of Berry Lemonade Craze in the mail yesterday along with a tub of Raspberry Lemonade Alphamine (which I will hopefully get to use during my cut/recomp in the not to distant future).

    Training:
    5/3/1 Squat Day

    Once again this is a "deload" so weights aren't really anything crazy. They did feel insanely light despite taking the non deloading deload approach.

    Assistance work:

    5 sets of 10 with 205 on Deadlift and Hanging Knee Raise for 5 sets of 12.

    Conditioning:

    Kept it easy at 5 trips of ~35 yards pushing the prowler with minimal rest.

    Diet:

    Managed roughly 3100 calories, slightly higher on fat than usual workout days. Once again during the 4th week (deload) week of 531 cycles I usually am a little more relaxed and don't measure out everything/eat more if I really want to. Had some nice tacos for dinner but was full pretty quickly.

    Supplement Notes:

    The Alpha+TP+Craze combo was pretty cool. Nothing really extra above normal Craze+TP experiences so far in this log in terms of focus, mood, energy, etc. I did notice an insane amount of sweating though. This could possibly be the thermo effect of Alphamine or just the fact that it has been gross and muggy here lately and I just went with the loading doors open instead of AC at the gym.

    Weights are feeling much easier on my 5 sets of 10 during the leg workouts and recovery has been pretty awesome as well. With that said I think going up to 70% 1-RM for these sets next week is going to be painful....

    Will post up a more comprehensive review of how the Testify Stack is going so far when I get more free time as yesterday marked week 2 with the addition of Test Powder. Sad it is already that far into the run.

    For a cliff note version of what is to be posted later I would say strength is definitely rising, muscle fullness is awesome, sleep and mood are great, but I am noticing some annoying acne and oily skin.


    Sorry for some of the delays and not getting much other than just the workout notes lately, my computer is acting glitchy and making it beyond annoying to use and have had a crazy work week. Week 2 review of TP +AB will be up today/tomorrow at the latest.
