Testing...1,2,3: USPlabs "PATENTED ANABOLIC"
- 11-28-2012, 06:05 AM
I got 5-6 hours’ sleep, which was enough to have me wake up feeling well rested.
My weight was 210.2lbs (+3.2lbs from “Day 1”) this morning. At this point in the week, I’ve usually shed the majority of any water that I was holding and don’t see it drop much further.
My breakfast was similar to what I’ve been eating recently, but I made a few changes.
Egg/chicken sausage/cheese omelette , hash brown cakes? (don’t know what to call them lol), chicken sausage, and Ezekial English muffin. Cereal (not shown)
Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

No slin or anything. I'm just a freak lol.PES Representative

Hard to decide whether the breezy food absorption disorder is a gift or a curse!PES Representativehttp://pescience.com/insider http://facebook.com/pescience

I haven't really decided yet either lol. It definitely has its positives and negatives. As long as I have enough time to eat its not a problem.Originally Posted by LiveToLift

What made you start eating like this & how did you know to "try" itOriginally Posted by breezy11

A couple years ago I started feeling tired, getting sick a lot and slowly losing weight. I went to a few doctors about it and they said they couldn't find anything wrong. Then I started losing weight rapidly, could barely walk up stairs or get up from a sitting position and ended up losing about 40lbs in a few months. After all that, doctors still had no clue what was going on, but had me increase and track my calories. I started feeling better after a few months and eventually figured out what I needed to maintain weight. I decided to get back in the gym at that point and have been eating and training like a savage ever since. I'm finally back to about where I started after a ton of hard work and my health checks out fine...I just need to eat a lot more lol.Originally Posted by AaronJP1

Ever make your own shakes to have on the run? I don't have to eat 6000kcals but some days when i'm just not hungry I make myself a 1500kcal shake. Mostly EVOO, EVCO, Oats, whole milk + skim milk, PB, Almonds, 2 bananas, Creamed rice and a pinch (or 5) of cinnamon. It makes around 750ml- 1 litre.

Not very often, but I usually have some form of calories readily available wherever I go. Thanks for the recipe though. It looks good and I'll definitely give it a shot.Originally Posted by Jiigzz
I don't normally eat 6000 calories either. Before and when I started PA, I was lean bulking with about 4700-5400 daily. Reaching 6000 was a rare occurrence and only happened on extremely active days.

Day 23 continued
It seemed pretty obvious today that my overall energy and endurance at work has improved. The same things that had me ready to drop a few weeks ago weren’t nearly as punishing. I felt great all day and still do currently.
I got out of work a little late but still had enough time to get in a solid workout.
The following was taken pre workout:
1 cap Patented Anabolic
1 sample pack Fierce Domination
2 scoops Protocol
1 scoop I-BCAA Max was used intra workout
The thermo effect was quite noticeable today. I once again had a very light sweat going as I arrived at the gym. The only difference with pre workout dosing was the use of Fierce Domination. I had used it a handful of times previously and am very familiar with its effects. I’m not sure how much caffeine it contains per scoop, but I’m wondering if the total consumed has anything to do with the level of the thermo effect.
It looks like great workouts have become the norm, as today’s went/felt amazing. I was full of energy and felt strong throughout. My confidence was at a new high and I made some form of progress with everything.
-some previous #’s in parenthesis
-I could have left the gym happy after my first set. I had been trying to reach BWx20 for what seems like forever.
-My back was feeling good on the first couple sets, so I decided to go heavier again. My high two weeks ago was 435x3.
-Last week’s weight went up with ease. I was really impressed with the progress made this week.
V-Bar Lat Pulldown (focus on negative/~5 seconds)
Seated Cable row
Hyperextensions (arms out/holding 14lb med ball)
-This was the first time I maintained 12 reps over 3 sets. I usually finish at least -2.
I’m still feeling great about tonight’s workout. A lot of the lifts that I was beginning to see progress slow down with a few weeks ago are now moving forward at a good pace.
The vascularity on my forearms reached a new level. The recently visible veins on the top sides of them are growing in number and prominence. They don’t pop like the rest of my arms, but are certainly making some progress.
I hit my calorie target for the day and had no problem doing so. My appetite was up and I was feeling hungry between meals and snacks.
Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:
11-29-2012, 06:07 AM
I was a little slow in getting up this morning, but after a scoop of Focus XT and a solid meal, I’m feeling good.
I was surprised to see my weight go up to 211lbs (+4lbs from “Day1”). It’s not a big increase, but I didn’t expect a rise this far into the workweek. Either way, I’ll gladly take it, as my appearance is still looking pretty good. I believe I’m at least as lean as when I started and muscle fullness/density are both improved.
Another surprise this morning was that my back is already feeling some soreness from last night’s workout. It’s minimal, but enough to make me want to do a little stretching. I think the added weight on my lifts helped with the early onset of DOMS.
Breakfast was eggs, hash browns, an Ezekiel English muffin, a spinach pancake, cereal, and almond butter.

Day 24 continued
Energy continued to be good throughout the day, despite a lot of physical work.
The slight DOMS I was experiencing this morning has been growing stronger as the day progresses. At this point, my back has an overall level of soreness that I haven’t felt in a long time. I’m not sure if PA has anything to do with it, but I normally don’t notice much soreness, if any, as a result of my workouts. Perhaps this is a cumulative effect that I’m just starting to feel. My biceps literally never get DOMS, so if it occurs after tonight’s workout, I’ll know something’s up.
My hunger was up for the second day in a row. I couldn’t help but eat my remaining “work food” during lunch, which I knew I would regret a couple hours later.
I’m about ready to head to the gym and will take the following pre workout:
1 cap Patented Anabolic
2 scoops Craze
2.5 scoops Protocol
1 scoop I-BCAA Max will be used intra workout
Today’s workout will be focused on arms and some light chest work.

I don't like the rushed feeling of training in the morning. If I was still on my 3pm-1:30am shift it'd be a different story.
