    Pump: 1/10
    I have literally seen nothing in this department more then any regular workout would illicit. I get pumped from the same exercises I normally do and maintain that pump longer after workouts that contain high complex carbs content in my p.wo. meal.


    Body Composition Changes: 8/10
    I've seen some nice effects in this area. I'm definitely leaning out around the belly and lower chest. Still have decent love handles and lower back fat, but that's my hardest spot to lose from and will take a lot more weight loss to see it effected. Currently down a good amount of weight though whilst increasing strength. Official starting weight had me at 210.8 fasted and I'm currently at 205.4 fasted. I am thinking some is water weight but honestly most is fat from the looks of the mirror. Nice to be able to cut yet not lose my appetite altogether and have to force feed for my cals. Pretty sure with the strength going up also, I'm not losing any muscle here. Which leads me to...


    Strength Increases:
    8/10

    Certainly seeing vast improvement in strength over that which I'd be getting naturally right now. I do expect to see the weights increase workout to workout right now, BUT I'm increasing weight and they are still easy, with proof they need to go up the very next workout. I felt Compound 20 was a lil better in this department BUT I wasn't cutting on compound 20 either... makes the strength increase and concurrent fat loss all the more impressive.


    Sleep and Muscular Recovery: 6/10
    I've seen very little increase in muscular recovery here. still plenty of DOMS but I actually quite like that feeling. Interset recovery has increased slightly though, but not exactly the same thing.
    Sleep is still GREAT, I always an a pretty deep sleeper though. The most notable change would certainly be the dream content which has still been sexual driven since a couple days in til now. Which leads to...


    Side Effects Neg and Pos: 7/10(10 being side free)
    Really there is very little neg to report. The lil bouts of emotion were mentioned and come and go with stimulus... Just more easily effected by certain things that are common with some people's experience on Clomid or the like. It's not all the time though so not a huge issue. Recently, as in since thurs, which was 7 days in, I have noticed that dosing fasted there is no problem, but when I do go to eat after the cardio, it sometimes hurts my stomach. Not GI discomfort but just a lil upset stomach that goes away after the food settles.... leading into the increased hunger.... this very well may be a negative for some. Very luckily for me, although I'm cutting, this increased hunger has been beneficial in getting in enough cals period and I'm still losing weight despite some extra snacking. So I feel this neg effect has been flipped to a positive thanks to the P.A. I would have to say also, that despite taking stimulants that normally shut down my libido and can give out right ED effects, libido has been going strong and I'm actually seeing occasional performance increases.

    Overall Initial Impressions: 6/10
    I have certainly been impressed at how much this supplement can be felt so quickly. More then anything, the increased hunger despite strong stimulant supplementation. While the weight loss and strength gains have also been welcome, I am hoping to see more from Patented Anabolic in the ways of muscle mass accrual and increased pumps and vasularity during workouts and through the day. Regardless of what I'd like to see, it just may not be an effect of Patented Anabolic after all and with that in mind I won't allow it to sway my judgment as its apparently doing something so far... how or what exactly I can't wait to find out.
    How about muscle density/fullness outside of the gym?

    N/A

    Really only time I get any kind of effect outside of the gym is after working out when I eat a high carb meal.

    I wish I was having such effects.

    Agreed.
    For a natty product the effects I've seen already are very impressive. I'm just hoping to see it continue to get better.

    I'd be interested in knowing how it works as well... will allow us to better exploit dosing.

  10. Subbed late, but subbed nonetheless. Best of luck with the remainder of the log!



  11. Hit chest tonight, had a fairly good pump going on, even traps were pumped up(sorry for the picture, cropped it down from a large high res photo but was taken at a distance).

    I was feeling decently strong tonight but I honestly had trouble pushing beyond last week's numbers, was really expecting more.

    Also this morning, after fasted cardio, I weighed in, actually up to 207.8 lbs overnight... had a ton of wings the night before and I think it really jacked up my sodium intake and increased water weight, cause of course there is no other way I gained 2.4 lbs of anything else over night.

    This is also why I really only care about weigh ins a week apart. Still gonna pound a good amount of water and milk to help even out my electrolytes and lower water retention. For those that are unaware, 2% milk has a decently high potassium content. Much better imo then Gatorade for getting electrolytes in balance plus nice source of slow absorbing proteins.

    Any ways, here's tonight's workout.


    Chest:
    Pushups (warm up)

    Db press- 40x10, 50x10, 70x10
    Dips- BWx7, BWx10
    Decline wiiide db press(almost a fly)- 30x12, 40x10, 45x10
    Incline db fly- 25x10, 35x10, 40x10
    Machine fly- 200x10, 220x10, 240x10


    Tomorrow is back. I will be deadlifting again thank goodness, but I'm staying under 275 and just rep it out while really paying attention to good form. Until I'm certain my back can handle more I'll be keeping it low. I was only lifting 315 and on my second rep when I hurt it. I actually lifted through the pop/pull(felt like a snap or click in the left side erectors and immediately knew I tore it or the tendon) and finished my second rep n slowly unracked all the plates n drove home before I realized I couldn't even bend over n needed to go to the dr... really was easy but my back just wasn't conditioned to lift that much that fast again I guess. I'm hoping that will change quickly over the next couple weeks so I can start chasing a 400+ lift again.

    I'm taking a break from fasted cardio tomorrow also as I don't want to eat up my hams energy stores before deadlifting.

    Time to eat n crash... after some video games.

    I have COD on reserve still from preorder but once the wifey lost her job I'm feeling hard pressed to drop the 55 bucks on yet another cod game. I've usually liked the MW versions better any how.

    I'd have to say, the only possible negative to drinking milk is the extra sugars... but I'm not particularly a huge carb depletion kinda guy, I go hypoglycemic too easily, so it's not an issue for me. I cut with plenty of carbs in my diet.

    Should be good for cutting and growth to hit high reps anyways.

  21. Deads went off without a hitch!

    Already feeling the soreness in between my shoulder blades from slamming out some bent over db rows and then strict tight form pinching and arching my back through every deadlift rep.

    Interested in how I'll feel tomorrow.

    I'll prob copy this workout next week, maybe more reps/sets but no heavier just yet.

    Back/Bis
    Db curls(R/L alternating)- 20x20, 35x20, 45x20
    Bent over db rows(R/L)- 40x10/10, 50x10/10, 60x10/10, 70x10/10
    Iso lat pulldown(R/L alternating)*- 40x20, 50x20, 60x20
    Deadlifts- 135x10, 185x10, 225x7, 225x5

    *constant pressure/partial contraction maintained on "off" arm during entire set.... buuuurrrns the forearms and hands.


    Was sweating a good deal during tonight's workout. This was with forgetting to even take a second dose of OEP n AT2 or a Pre tonight. I just took the P.A. in the morning with my stims as Im used to doing for cardio anyways n I honestly figure if this stuff is dosed once a day kind of supplement it apparently has a very long half life n shouldn't make that much of a difference.

    I'll be taking tomorrow off, may hit up some cardio if I wake up before my gym closes at 11am.... LoL, not likely.... but we are actually doing our family Thanksgiving on Saturday, I'll be doing shoulders after Turkey n tater fueled shoulder smash sesh... mmmmmmm.

    Other then that, legs on Friday, no cardio.

    Ughh... a lil sore this morning...

    But I'm sitting here waiting my 45 min after dosing my OEP n AT2 w/P.A. and I can't believe how hungry I am.

    This weekend seemed like the hunger was fading a lil bit but yesterday and today my morning hunger has been incredibly intense there is no way I could do fasted cardio even if it was on the schedule.

    I think it directly correlates with the previous night intense workouts.

    Oh and I forgot to mention, weighed in last night during the workout n I was at 206, down from the previous days fasted 207.8.... further proof I was holding a good deal of water with that heavier weigh in.

    Can't wait to hit legs tomorrow n blast shoulders sat after loading up on delicious eats.

  24. Your pump is gonna be huge! Maybe some PR's are on the horizon?

  25. Last night's Leg destruction mission?

    ACCOMPLISHED!


    It started much earlier in the day yesterday. My brother-in-law needed help working on his truck so most the day I was getting up and down from under the truck or leaning forward over the engine bay.

    For any of you that have never done major engine work is an insane lower back and hammy workout.... well more a test of endurance.

    By the end of the day my feet hurt from standing in the same place all day n I was pretty tired and hungry..... so I chugged down a protein shake along with my chicken Alfredo the wifey made, took my PA and waited about an hour na half n drank some aminos with creatine, ba and lclt on the way to the gym.

    Initially I planned on a full out leg workout still, but after feeling the heaviest set I decided I still was gonna gas too early, so I wanted to use what energy I had left to just turn it into a squat session...

    Here's the numbers after a full day of leg work...

    Legs

    Squats-
    135x10
    185x10
    225x10
    225x5
    225x5
    135x15*

    *decided to drop n blitz their as many strict form reps as possible, around 12 my legs were on fire and by the time I hit 15 I couldn't take it n the pump was starting to impede my ROM... thought my legs would explode at that point.

    I even sat down on the hammy curl machine n thought to myself... "uhhh you could barely even walk to this machine, what are you thinking?"


    Got home... which with my truck clutch, was a huge chore... n had another 50g protein shake. After sitting for a lil bit I got up to walk to the kitchen n get another plate of chicken Alfredo n there was nothing left in my legs, I could barely stand.

    I would also eat, get hungry in 15 min, eat, get hungry, eat, get hungry.... until I finally passed out on the couch starting to feel hungry yet again but too tired physically and sleepy to do anything about it. Each time I was eating I was dishing up full plates as well.

    This "morning" my legs are already a lil sore but even with all my carb loading with pasta last night I feel like I still have barely any energy stores built up.

    Thank goodness it's my thanksgiving meal today, as I plan on smashing through a ton of food, passing out into a mini coma, waking and eating again then smashing shoulders tonight...

    Prob gonna eat an entire weeks worth of calories for me right now between yesterday n today. I think my muscles need it though.

    I'll update again later tonight on how my turkey fueled workout goes.
