  1. jalfrey+AppNut IGF-2+Neovar=MASS!

    BIG thanks to drooks10 and the entire team at Applied Nutriceuticals for letting me log this combination of products for them. I've used a couple of their supplements in the past and as you can see from my reviews on here, they are nothing short of awesome!

    A quick rundown of the products, from App Nut's website--w w w.a p p n u t.c o m
    What is IGF-2?
    IGF-2 is a powerful anabolic blend of the strongest herbal anabolic compounds on the market; precisely formulated and dosed to provide dramatic, noticeable results FAST!
    What makes IGF-2 the best herbal anabolic on the market?
    The specifically titrated ratios of the compounds in IGF-2 trigger enormous increases in growth hormone and testosterone production.
    Increases the output of growth hormone and local IGF-1 levels
    Enhances libido and virility and can be used as natural hormone replacement therapy product.

    It maximizes muscle hardness and fullness, increases strength and endurance and accelerates your recovery time. Older users will notice newfound youthfulness and virility. Body mass gains will be clearly noticeable in your first cycle!

    What is NeoVar?
    NeoVar is a blend of strength and recovery-boosting compounds (creatine monohydrate and creatine phosphate) plus potent nutrient repartitioners that work synergistically to give you voluminous pumps and muscle volume that no product ever has been able to do.

    What Makes NeoVar the Best Pump Product on the Market?
    The Mono/PCr Complex in NeoVar is precisely proportioned to the naturally occurring human skeletal intramuscular creatine pool stored in your muscles
    Clucovar/adenylate Cyclase Sensitization Complex improves creatine transport into muscle cells where you want it!!
    Maximizes the nutrient uptake into your muscle cells for the best post-workout recovery.
    No bloating that is often associated with creatine products for dry, hard pumps.
    The more carbohydrates you eat, the harder you work out, the better NeoVar works!

    I'm starting out this log with the following measurements--Arms 17.75" Chest 48.5" Thigh 23.5"

    Unfortunately, my low post count means no pics or links yet. I'm currently dosing 4 caps of IGF-2 45 minutes before workout on an empty stomach and right before bed per the instructions on the bottle. The NeoVar dosage means I only have about three weeks worth of it, so I'm going to start it later in the log, so that I finish both products around the same time. I also think this will help me make better gains as my body readjusts to lifting heavier after the first couple of weeks. I'm 6'1", 220lbs and taking in 3200-3500 calories a day. I'm following a modified version of Neil Hill's Y3T protocol. Modified so I can hit chest twice a week as it is really a problem area.
    My split looks like this--Mon. Back and biceps
    Tues. Chest and triceps
    Wed. Legs
    Thurs. Shoulders
    Fri. Chest
    I'll be posting up my workouts and thoughts at least three times a week in here. It's gonna be a sweet ride!

  2. I actually started taking IGF-2 on Monday, unfortunately it's been a busy week and I am just now getting around to logging. So here are my workouts for the past few days, in separate posts so I can work on that post count...
    I <3 Carbs

  3. 10/29

    I didn't notice any changes in my strength of sleeping that night. But, I'm going to keep faith that IGF-2 is working and will really take off once it gets in my system good.
    I <3 Carbs

  4. 10/30
    Pec deck: 2x13x70 1x13x85
    Pec deck: 3x14x160 (PR!)

    EZ bar Decline triceps press: 2x13x50lbs

    Maybe that strength component is starting to kick in already?
    I <3 Carbs

  5. 10/31
    A2G squat: 2x15x95lbs
    Hack Squat 4x14x265

    Lying Leg Curls: 3x15x95 1x15x85
    Standing Calf Raises: 3x15x230 1x15x210

    I think I'm starting to get some better sleep. Then again it could be just that it's getting darker earlier. Anyhow, I'll going to choose to believe that it's IGF-2 helping me to recover better! My legs aren't as sore as I would have expected, and although I know DOMS isn't the best indicator of a good workout. I'm still kinda old skool in that I like to think that if you're not sore, you didn't hit it right!

    Have a good one!
    I <3 Carbs

  6. Today was my second chest workout of the week. I didn't get a great deal of sleep last night, but I'm feeling pretty good as the IGF-2 has already been helping me sleep more deeply. This is translating into better recovery and just overall vitality--much like I had with RPM. Today is the last of my mid-rep/weight range workouts in this 1st Y3T cycle, next week will be high rep/low weight. Today's attack looked like this--

    Cable crossover: 3x13x20lbs
    Wide-grip dips: 3x15xBW
    Incline BB Press: 3x13x170
    DB Pullover: 3x15x35
    Tricep extension Supersets (Overhand): 3x13x72
    (Underhand): 3x13x72
    Cable Crossovers: 3x13x48

    Have a great weekend, all. See ya Monday!
    I <3 Carbs

  7. I missed a dose over the weekend, but no matter. I still had a great workout this weekend and I'm looking forward to a great night of sleep with IGF-2 tonight! Here what it's gonna help me recover from!
    Low pulley high row: 3x13x85lbs

    Low pulley row: 1x16x144lbs 1x16x132lbs

  8. Another PR today, I'll take it.

    Low pulley tricep kickbacks: 2x18x36lbs 1x18x24lbs
    Wide-Grip tricep pressdown: 1x16x144lbs 2x16x132lbs

    Worked legs this morning. Nothing much to say except I powered through it. Which probably does say a lot considering I went to bed too late watching election results ; )

    Leg Extension: 2 triple drop sets of 16x170lbs 16x150lbs 16x130lbs (PR!)
    Seated Leg Curl: 2 triple drop sets of 16x130lbs 16x110lbs 16x90lbs

    Standing Platform Lunge: 2x16x90lbs per leg (PR!)
    Calf Raise: 2x25x90lbs

    Leg Press: 2x50x370lbs (ouch!)

    Two rep/weight PRs, gonna pay for them tomorrow! Quick question for anyone with experience--I know that one can uncap RPM and mix it in water for faster and more intense effect, can the same be done with IGF-2 or NeoVar?
    I <3 Carbs

  9. Today was my first mediocre workout since starting IGF-2. Gym was extra crowded, left the house late, blah, blah, blah. I did get a PR on the seated side lat, but it was with some pretty shabby form.
    I was wondering if anyone who has taken IGF-2 has been bothered with waking up a couple times a night? It's weird, I sleep more deeply, but I wake up more often. Just wondering. I had a test booster in the spring that had similar effects, so maybe it's a sensitivity that I'm not aware of.

    Tomorrow is chest2 day, gonna make up for today!

    Seated side lateral raise: 2x15x15lbDB

    Seated side lateral raise: 2 triple drop set 2x12x35lb 2x13x30lb 2x14x25lb

    Power cleans: triple-drop set 1x22x105lbs/1x22X85/1X22X65

    Seated front dumbbell raise: 2x18x30lbs
    Seated DB shoulder press: 2x16x30lbs

    Cable curls:3x16x65
    I <3 Carbs

  10. Today was much better! I don't usually do much machine work, so I think for the rest of my chest2 log that I'll do (almost) exclusively machines on the second workout. I'm guessing that it will hit the muscles in a different way than sticking with free weights will. I'm taking Monday offf for the holiday, so have a great weekend and meet you back here Tuesday!


    machine chest press triple drop--3x16x170/150/110

    Pec Deck-2 triple drops--3x16x160/130/100

    Narrow Grip DB Press--3x16x40 each hand

    Overhead Cable Extensions--3x16x60
    I <3 Carbs

  11. I added NeoVar to the mix Sunday night. I haven't noticed anything yet. But, I'm sure it's coming!
    Ended up working out yesterday, here it is with today's workout, too. I'm back on heavy weight/low reps this week. I had to do some modifications to today's workout as my arms were too sore to get dumbbells up for incline presses. But, I'm still pretty happy with my strength gains over three weeks ago--

  13. In it,

  14. Thanks for joining in, murk! I'll be checking out your IGF log shortly. It's good stuff, isn't it?


    DB Incline Press: 3x12x35

    Cybex Incline Machine: 4x6x238 (PR)


    Pec Deck: 4x6x230

    Ovehead Tri Ext (cable): 4x8x120(PR)

    A short workout on Fiday, but effective. Switching up rep ranges again next week and that's about it.

    I've really got to work on my post count around here so I can get some pics up....
    I <3 Carbs

  15. I just realized that I never posted up measurements! My measurements at the end of my last bulk were
    Arms--17 7/8"
    Thighs--24 1/4"

    Right now I'm looking at
    Arms--18 1/2"

    So far, so good!
    I <3 Carbs

  16. 11/19
    Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown: 3x13x70lbs
    Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown: 3x13x180lbs

    EZ Bar Curl: 1x13x30lbs
    EZ Bar Curl: 1x13x80lbs 1x13x70lbs 1x13x60lbs

    I decided to spare my lower back a bit and use the Cybex for rows. I don't think I've ever used it before and I liked it! Had to cut bi's short, but I'll work on them more Thursday so I can take advantage of all that dirty bulking I'm going to do that day! Thanks as always for your input, guys!
    I <3 Carbs

  17. Today...


    Pec Deck--3x13x85

    Pec Deck--3x13x170 (PR)

    Smith Incline--1x13x205 (PR) 1x13x195

    Incline Flyes--1x13x35 2x13x30

    DB Incline Press--2x13x70

    Standing DB Tri Ext--3x13x60 (PR)

    Decline Tri Ext--2x13x60 (PR)

    Another strong workout. I can notice a difference since popping some Neovar with my biggest meals of the day. I'm getting swole and posting more gains!
    I <3 Carbs

  18. I notice way better quality of sleep after a while with IGF2, just wondering if ur gettng the same

  19. Hey guys, sorry it's been a few days. The holidays and a slight bout of the flu knocked me off track. I took Wednesday off as a scheduled rest day, knowing that I was going to push hard Thanksgiving morning. That's the workout I'm listing here--

    Deads:1x10x135, 1x8x225, 1x6x315, 1x4x335 (PR!), 1x4x335, 1x6x315, 1x12x225, 2x20x135
    Cybex Incline: 3x13x218
    EZ Curls: 3x13x60
    Cable Crossovers drop set (per side):1x8x72, 60, 48, 36, 24, 12

    Three days of rest, I'm ready to go back in and tear it up tomorrow!
    I <3 Carbs

    I have noticed much better quality of sleep, murk. So much so, that since I only have a week's worth of IGF-2 left, I've wondered if I shouldn't just try it before bed and see if it affects my morning workout strengthwise. It's great stuff!
    I <3 Carbs

  21. After taking three days off, I went in and started off this high-volume week with chest--

    DB incline press: 3x13x35lbs

    Incline Smith machine press: 3 triple drop sets--3x14x195lbs/

    Incline dumbbell flyes: 3 drop sets--1x14x35lbs/1x14x30lbs/1x15x25lbs

    Overhead tricep extensions: 3x16x40lbs

    Low pulley tricep kickbacks: 2x18x36lbs 1x18x24lbs
    Wide-Grip tricep pressdown: 3x16x144lbs

    I still gained strength on the Smith, but I'm thinking it's a bit much to count it as a PR
    Tomorrow is back and bi's! Let's do this!
    I <3 Carbs

  22. 11/27
    Low pulley high row: 3x13x85lbs

    Low pulley row: 1x16x144lbs 1x16x132lbs
    Wide-grip pulldowns: 2x16x144lbs

    Wide Grip T-bar row: 2x15x100lbs
    Straight-arm pulldowns: 2x16x65lbs

    Dumbbell lying pullovers: 2x15x45lbs
    Leverage high row: 2x16x200lbs

    EZ bar Curls: 2x15x50lbs
    EZ-Bar curl: 3x23x60lbs

    DB Hammer Curls (drop set):1x16x40,35,30

    No PRs today, but I concentrated on form and not working to failure more than normal. I'll take it!
    I <3 Carbs

  23. Whew, what a week!

    I had to take yesterday off. I'm thinking that for the rest of this log, I'm going to scale back to 4 days a week. Not to be a whiner, but taking as hard as I am 5 days a week is starting to affect my recovery.
    Speaking off the log, I'm getting pretty darn low on IGF-2. I didn't count this morning, but I only have enough to get through the weekend. Next time I buy some, I'll go with the 5 on, 2 off protocol. But this late in the log, i don't see any reason to change. Especially since recovery has been an issue this week.

    Leg Extension: 2 triple drop sets of 16x190lbs 16x170lbs 16x130lbs
    Seated Leg Curl: 2 triple drop sets of 16x130lbs 16x110lbs 16x90lbs

    Squats: 2x13x30lbs
    Squats: 2x22x155lbs

    Standing Platform Lunge: 2x16x90lbs per leg

    Leg Press: 1x50x405

    I had trouble with stamina this day. This is why I took Thursday off, and started thinking about moving back to 4 days.

    Pec Deck: 3x13x85

    Pec Deck:3 Drop set 2x16x160, 145, 130
    Overhead Cable Ext:3 Drop set 2x13x108, 96, 84

    Hammer Strength Incline: 3x16x110

    Dips: 4x12xBW

    Enough of a workout to stimulate without annihilating. I felt pretty good about my pump even though I didn't move the same volume i did on Monday. A couple days of rest, then back to heavy/low next week.

    Have a great weekend!
    I <3 Carbs

  24. That's it...I'm out of this precious product...

    Wide-grip pulldowns: 3x10x70
    Wide-grip pulldowns: 4x6x204 (PR)
    T-Bar row: 4X8X185
    Rack pulls: 2x3x405 (PR) 3x6x365
    Seated cable row: 4x6x214
    Inverted Rows: 4x6xBW
    Barbell Curl: 2x10x30
    Barbell Curl: 2x8x90 2x8x80

    That rack pull was especially sweet--4 plates! i know some people don't think much of them, but I've seen my deadlifts go up a decent bit since using pulls on back day.

    Incline Dumbbell Press: 3x12x35lb DBs
    Smith Incline Press: 3x6x235 1X6X240 (PR!)
    Incline Dumbbell Flyes: 3x6x45lb 2x6x40lb DBs
    Decline Triceps Extension (ez curl bar): 4x6x70
    Straight Bar Triceps Pushdown: 4x8x204
    Cybex Incline Press: 1x6x190lbs (neg reps)

    I love the fact that I've busted more than a couple mental blocks while using IGF-2. One of those being 4 plates. Another being benching more than my bodyweight!

    I'll post up measurements and final thoughts tonight...
    I <3 Carbs
