    Day 24 continued

    The thermo effect was fairly strong when I arrived at the gym and I worked up a good sweat. I plan on lowering the caffeine dose tomorrow to see if I notice any difference.

    I’m more than happy to report that strength isn’t slowing down at all and I’m continuing to make great progress with each workout. The results of the last couple weeks really have me feeling unstoppable when I get in the gym…it’s awesome haha.

    Nice increase ms on your lifts. Nothing mind shattering but man the consistency of increases with you is crazy. Nice work.

    The DOMS effect is interesting.

    Thanks LTL. Honestly man, I'm really impressed with the increase in strength/endurance I'm seeing. A lot of my lifts were stalling out the 2-3 weeks leading up to this and I actually saw numbers decline slightly with a couple. Things are now moving forward at great pace across the board. I believe that almost all of my increases are finally "true PR's" as well, topping my strength before I lost all my weight/power. It's a great feeling.

    The level of soreness yesterday was definitely unexpected and is still quite noticeable. My biceps seem to be holding up at this point, but I'll see how they feel by the end of the day. Any level of DOMS with them would be unusual.

    Day 25

    Sleep was minimal, but my energy this morning is good. I had some Focus XT to help me get moving, but feel like I would be doing fine without it.

    My weight came down a little to 210lbs (+3lbs from “Day1”) this morning. All added weight appears to be lean mass.

    DOMS with my back is still pretty strong and now covers the entire area (lower back wasn’t as noticeable yesterday). There’s not much soreness, if any, as a result of last night’s session at this point, but it hasn’t been very long post workout either.


    I’m currently rushing to get to work, but here’s a quick calorie breakdown of today’s breakfast:

    Calories: 1590
    Carbs: 193
    Protein: 50
    Fat: 73

    Lifting the weights you do, I think a little DOMS is inevitable haha.

    Haha You'd think so, but it's pretty minimal the majority of the time. However, I have a feeling DOMS is going to be ridiculous after tonight's workout. It's been a busy day and I'll have an update in a little while.

    Day 25 continued

    I had a long physical workday and was able to walk away with some energy intact. This continues to be a very welcome change and has really made my life easier the last couple weeks.

    My appetite was noticeably high for the third day in a row. I’m wondering if this recent trend will continue.

    Yesterday’s workout hasn’t led to any significant DOMS at this point. There is a small amount of soreness in my triceps and forearms.



    I didn’t have much time for a workout, but decided to head to the gym and see what I could get done.


    The following was taken pre workout:

    1 cap Patented Anabolic
    100mg caffeine
    2 scoops Craze
    2.5 scoops Protocol

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max was used intra workout


    Today’s workout was focused on legs. Working late today, left me with a minimal amount of time before the gym closed and I changed my approach to compensate for it. I had just about 30 minutes from the time I arrived, so I dropped some exercises/weight/rest and powered through my routine at an accelerated pace. It ended up being a real test of strength/endurance and had to be one of the most punishing 30 minutes I’ve spent in the gym. I was definitely happy with my performance and even more so after looking at the results a little closer.


    -some previous #’s in parenthesis

    BB Back Squat
    315x20 (315x8)
    405x15 (405x5)
    455x10 (455x5)
    455x9 (505x3)
    ------ (505x3)
    ------ (505x3)

    -The rest time between sets was cut in half, the thermo effect was felt and I was sweating like crazy. After going over the numbers, I found strength had made some good improvements. Based on weight/reps, 405x15 showed a decent strength increase from my previous high. The next set of 455x10 surpassed that, while maintaining the same level of depth with each rep. I’m really impressed that strength increased at that point, especially with the approach I was taking. When the last set was finished, I was completely out of breath, about ready to collapse, and had a massive leg pump with an intensity that I don’t think I’ve previously experienced. I can actually still feel my legs burning somewhat right now.


    Seated Leg Curl
    220x15
    220x14

    Leg Extensions
    265x13
    265x11

    DB alt Lunges
    70 x failure
    drop
    40x failure


    I literally had a tough time leaving the gym. I was feeling a little nauseous shortly after finishing and had to hold off on my usual post workout shake. Apparently it was obvious how beat up I was, as I had a woman tell me that I “look exhausted and should go to bed”, when I stopped to get gas on the way home.




    I finished up my food intake with a late dinner and kept my calorie goal on track for the day.


    Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 5767
    Carbs: 635
    Protein: 388
    Fat: 197
    (43/27/30)



    My only plan for tomorrow is rest. I’ll be sleeping in and spending my time relaxing.

    Big weight + legs + short rest = nausea like a mofo.

    Moving some big weight, 405x15 is nooooo joke. A full day of rest should almost be mandatory after an intense squat session like that

    Your equation is correct haha.

    Thanks man. My legs have always been a strong point. I started playing hockey at a young age and it results in a lot of leg power and mass. I doubt I'll ever get them back to the size they were when I played competitively. I'm definitely looking forward to some rest.

    Yeah that's usually a good sign that you put in a decent amount of effort.

    I've been keeping track of my experience on a weekly basis, broken down into the categories listed below.



    'Patent Pending Anabolic' Week #3 Reactions (up to "Day 21")


    oTraining changes/Performance: My approach to training has remained consistent; however, my performance has seen significant improvements in both strength and endurance. Strength endurance has been very impressive. My ability to maintain strength throughout a workout has increased quite noticeably.


    oBodyweight changes: I'm continuing to add weight at a steady pace of ~1lb a week. I finished week 3, up about 3lbs total.


    oBodyfat changes: My body fat has had no visible increase and my appearance is looking fairly tight.


    oStrength: Strength has been climbing at an accelerated pace. It has become the norm to see 5-10lb increases between sessions on all of my major lifts. Strength endurance has also seen improvement, as previously mentioned.


    oFocus/Euphoria: Focus is high during training sessions. I can't say for sure that this is directly related to PA. The results I'm having certainly have me locked into each workout though.


    oPumps/Vascularity: Pumps and vascularity are both strong. Vascularity has seen some significant changes, both in and out of the gym. Veins have become visible in new areas and others continue to gain prominence.


    oMuscle Fullness: Muscle fullness has been improving with each week.


    oRecovery: Recovery has been great. I'm not fatigued from previous sessions and work (physical) has been taking less of a toll on my body.


    oSize: I believe my overall size has increased somewhat, particularly my shoulders, chest, and legs.


    oEnergy: My daily energy has notably improved. This is most apparent while working a physical job. The same tasks that had me ready to drop by the end of the day are now completed with energy intact. I think this ties into the noted increase in endurance as well.


    oSleep Quality: I seem to be getting through the day easier, with less than optimal sleep time. This could perhaps indicate an improvement in the "quality" of what sleep I am getting.


    oFeelings/Mood: I have been feeling great on a daily basis. I'm unsure if this is a direct result of PA. I believe the extra daily energy and results I'm consistently seeing in the gym could have a big part in how I'm feeling as well. My confidence in the gym is currently at a very high level.


    oOther: The thermo effect is still noticed when dosing PA. The level of this effect has varied. Hunger is still increased sporadically.

    Day 26

    I got more sleep than I have in quite some time. I woke up around 8am, shut my eyes for what I thought would be a few minutes, and the next thing I knew it was 11am. I don’t think I’ve stayed in bed that late in the day since college.

    I immediately had a cap of Patented Anabolic with a scoop of Focus XT to get my day started. I didn’t notice much in terms of a rise in body temperature. This effect continues to be felt at varying degrees.

    I was a little achy this morning when getting out of bed. It’s not very uncommon after a week of work/gym, but it’s something I’ll be keeping an eye on. Those that know me are very familiar with my joint issues, and my resulting love for cissus. It’s the one supplement I wouldn’t (or couldn’t) go without. I’ll be bumping my Super Cissus dosing up to 5 caps a day (from 4).

    DOMS is starting to be felt in my legs. The level of soreness isn't anything unusual at this point.

    My weight is holding steady at 210lbs (+3lbs from “Day 1”). After completing the workweek and seeing no further decline, I’m confident that today’s weigh-in reflects my “clean weight” (no extra water). All of the 3lbs appear to lean, as there is no sign of increased body fat.



    I stepped up my breakfast game this morning and had an amazing meal. It was a good amount of food, but I finished it all without ever slowing down.

    The delicious type. They're "gluten free" blueberry waffles from Trader Joe's. It's the first time I've tried them and they were pretty tasty. They have banana ones too, that I plan on trying soon. I actually hadn't had waffles in years.

    Day 26 continued

    I had a very successful rest day and my activity was limited to basically walking up and down stairs. This became increasingly challenging as the day went on, as DOMS is now pretty strong throughout my legs. I can’t really judge if the level of soreness has anything to do with PA because the way I hit my legs during last night’s workout was something they weren’t accustomed to.



    My day of eating is complete and my caloric intake was pretty high for having very limited activity.


    Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 4978
    Carbs: 441
    Protein: 425

    I’ll be back in the gym tomorrow, looking to continue my progress. I plan on making it a morning workout, so I can spend the rest of the day watching football.

    Glad you got to rest up bro! This soreness is really interesting across the logs. Hoping it proves to be a good side in the end but it's hard to tell until we see the final results I guess. I missed it but is this log going to be a two month run or just the month? I'd be extremely interested in an extended run with the product. Especially with this being a beta run and most natty products show the blunt of there effects in the tail end of the first month and into the second month for me.

    Good updates man. Good luck with the morning workout my brother. :-)

    Thanks man. I'm still not entirely convinced that the recent soreness is a "direct" result of the product, but should have a better idea after a couple more workouts. Either way, I don't see it as a bad thing, considering my strength is recovering great between/during workouts and the soreness hasn't lasted an unusual amount of time.

    There's a possibility of an extended run, but I'm not sure at this point. I won another bottle, which I would glady jump right into, depending on when it arrives. I agree that in 4 weeks it can be tough to fully gauge what a product can do. I'm already very impressed with PA, but some of the effects have really started to pick up as of late and another month with everything going full force would be interesting.

    I'm glad you're following as well and appreciate the support man. This experience has been a lot of fun so far and the versatility of the product definitely provides plenty to discuss.

    Day 27

    I got a good night’s sleep and work up feeling refreshed. I was expecting my legs to be in rough shape based on how they were feeling when I went to sleep, but was happy to feel the soreness had lessened quite a bit. At this point in the day, there isn’t much soreness left in them at all. My joints also saw improvement, as there weren’t any aches when I woke up and they held up great during today’s workout.

    My weight made its usual increase after yesterday’s lack of activity and I weighed in at 212.8lbs (+5.8lbs from “Day 1”). I could tell I was holding a little water, but was still looking pretty lean with no visible increase in body fat beyond where I started. My calipers actually indicate that my stomach fat is still down a minimal amount from “Day1”.


    I was somewhat pressed for time this morning, but managed to fit in a good breakfast before heading to the gym.

    The calorie total of my meal matched yesterday’s breakfast exactly…I thought that was interesting lol.

    Calories: 1680
    Carbs: 193
    Protein: 62
    Fat: 79



    I went to the gym shortly after my meal.


    The following was taken pre workout:

    1 cap Patented Anabolic
    100mg caffeine
    2 scoops Craze
    2g ALCAR
    2.5 scoops Protocol

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max was used intra workout


    My workout was a little earlier than I would have liked and I didn’t start out quite as focused as I’ve been recently. However, I continued to make improvements and gained focus not long after I began lifting. My endurance was great and I felt like I could have kept lifting for a while. I finally made myself leave, so I wouldn’t miss much football. I know I could have an “off day” in the gym eventually (it happens), but at this point, I’m thoroughly enjoying the consistent progress.


    -some previous #’s in parenthesis

    305x4 (295x4)
    320x2 (305x3)
    ------(315x1)

    -I had a spot on the last set unlike last week and didn’t have to hold back. My bench has never been that great, but I think I’ve matched my previous strength high, dating back to college and pre shoulder injury.


    BB Incline Bench
    225x10 (245x6)
    255x6 (255x5)
    255x6 (255x5)

    55x5 (50x6) flat

    -Seeing reps increase with less of a decline each set was a decent indication of a strength endurance improvement.

    super set w/ last set of CC

    I was sweating heavily for the majority of my workout. Vascularity was strong per usual and the pump from the tricep super sets was intense. My arms blew up and I was stuck in “tough guy position” because I couldn’t fully lower them to my sides lol.



    My diet is on track and I’ll have today’s calorie total and breakdown posted tonight.

    Haha yeah, that's the best way I could describe it.

    Thanks man. I'm definitely dedicated to my training and the progress only adds to it.

    I should have a review up sometime this week. Hopefully I can get some pictures taken around the time my weight starts to bottom out. I should lose the majority of any water I'm holding by Wednesday ("Day 30"). I'm not sure at this point, but maybe it will only be mid run review. When I get my second bottle, I'll have a hard time putting it aside.

    I immediately had a cap of Patented Anabolic with a scoop of Focus XT to get my day started. I didn’t notice much in terms of a rise in body temperature. This effect continues to be felt at varying degrees.

    I was a little achy this morning when getting out of bed. It’s not very uncommon after a week of work/gym, but it’s something I’ll be keeping an eye on. Those that know me are very familiar with my joint issues, and my resulting love for cissus. It’s the one supplement I wouldn’t (or couldn’t) go without. I’ll be bumping my Super Cissus dosing up to 5 caps a day (from 4).

    DOMS is starting to be felt in my legs. The level of soreness isn't anything unusual at this point.

    My weight is holding steady at 210lbs (+3lbs from “Day 1”). After completing the workweek and seeing no further decline, I’m confident that today’s weigh-in reflects my “clean weight” (no extra water). All of the 3lbs appear to lean, as there is no sign of increased body fat.

    I stepped up my breakfast game this morning and had an amazing meal. It was a good amount of food, but I finished it all without ever slowing down.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    It would be sweet indeed. I'm not sure if it will work out that way, but I'm definitely excited to have won another bottle regardless.

    Yeah, it was awesome. Breakfast this weekend has been my favorite meal of the day. I try to step up my meals when I'm not in a rush to get to work.

    It was just a small dent in my daily calories too haha. I'm glad I started adding more variety to my breakfast. I had never really been a breakfast guy, but that's starting to change.

    Day 27 continued

    It looks as though vascularity is still improving. When I got out of the shower tonight, I noticed that the visible veins in my lower abdomen/upper thigh area are growing in number and prominence. A couple of the veins that have shown up since starting my run were really starting to pop. This was shortly after I ate and I’m wondering if that helped bring them out.



    I finished the day with my calories reaching their target.


    Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 5077
    Carbs: 497
    Protein: 386
    Fat: 180

    Day 28

    I slept for about 5-6 hours and didn’t want to get up for work whatsoever. I ended up hitting the snooze button a couple times before finally starting my day. Despite, the hard time getting out bed, I actually have more energy than I normally do on workday mornings.

    Any soreness from yesterday’s workout was very minimal when I woke up. I’ll see if that holds up as the day goes on.

    My weight was 212.6lbs (+5.6lbs from “Day1”), which is about the same as yesterday. It should start it’s decline with the start of the workweek.



    I didn’t have much time for breakfast after sleeping a few extra minutes. Cooking was kept to a minimum and I had waffles, cereal, and a shake (whey, Greek yogurt, GlycoMyx, and almond milk). Carbs were a little higher than they’ve been, but I’m not too concerned about it.


    Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

    Calories: 1725
    Carbs: 245
    Protein: 69
    Fat: 56

    Day 28 continued

    Getting through work was a breeze. I had great energy and endurance that lasted throughout the day. I love that some of the same effects that are improving my gym performance are carrying over to work as well. It has really made life easier and more enjoyable the last few weeks.

    I’m not experiencing much DOMS at all, as a result of yesterday’s workout. My chest has a slight tightness and is feeling very dense. I’m actually a little surprised by how solid it feels today.



    I’ll be heading to the gym after dosing the following:

    1 cap Patented Anabolic
    100mg caffeine
    2 scoops Craze
    2g ALCAR
    2.5 scoops Protocol

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max will be used intra workout


    Today’s workout will be a mix of biceps, forearms, calves, and abs.

    Day 28 continued

    The gym went well and strength was up. It’s not the most exciting workout of the week, but I kept progress moving forward at a solid pace regardless. The thermo effect was strong tonight and I was sweating right from the start of my routine. I ate a little less pre workout than I have been and that may have increased the effect.


    -some previous #’s in parenthesis

    Chins

    BW+70x7 (BW+70x6)

    drop

    -The improvements here made me very happy. Progress had stalled (may have lost a rep) on BW chins for at least 2 weeks prior to starting PA. The last 2 weeks I’ve been +2 reps each workout.

    Pump and vascularity were both strong the majority of the workout. The super sets made both shine and had my arms looking freakish.




    I wanted to show an example of some of my new found vascularity. This is part of what I’m seeing around my lower abdomen and thighs. Both of these veins had never been seen prior to starting PA and are now showing more each day. The large vein on my hand isn't normally visible as well.

    I agree. This one just isn't as satisfying with no major lifts involved.

    Thanks hulk. I couldn't imagine things going much better than they have. It's been a great run.
