    Lowering the No Uptake and increasing the Drive? That should be a good combo for endurance and it will make your NO Uptake last longer.

    I love forskolin and feel bad for people that can't handle it. Drive and Decimate are two of my favorite supplements and I don't think they would be nearly as good with out forskolin.

    Lowering NO Up to 5 on Leg days and keeping it at 6 on upper days. Should still be solid still. I agree on the forskolin comment. I feel no discomfort at this current dose but feel bad for those who do.

    Ya enjoying NO Up + Free Test quite a bit and the addition of Drive has been nice so far (1 week in). Pumps, endurance, and recovery are great at the moment.

    Just got home from a lift...hopefully an update before I head back to work. Things are ramping up for the last several weeks of this stack. The couple of weeks at real high rep assistance work seems to have made me feel awesome.

    Was afraid a deload was needed soon, but based off of today I will be working hard next 2 (maybe 3 weeks) then hit a deload. More on that with the update tho.

    Jan. 7:



    Took 2 scoops ABC + 2 scoops Origin + 6 NO Uptake + 3 Drive pre-workout today. 3 Neovar post-workout.


    Training:


    ME Upper:

    -Banded Bench Press
    -Never really tried max effort with bands before (and have limited band bench experience), but figured I'd go for this today. Got up to 175lbs with the bands for a triple. No idea what the tension at top or bottom was, but stopped increasing the weight when it got to be a real grind at the top. Definitely need some more speed and tri emphasis based on what I saw today.

    Assistance work:

    B1)JM Press: 4 x 8 @ 145lbs
    B2)Chest supported row: 4 x 10 @ 115lbs
    C1)Overhead Press: 2 x 10 @ 95lbs
    C2)Pull Ups: 2 x 10 @ BWT
    D1)Band Pull Aparts: 2 x 15 @ Red Band
    D2)Hammer Curl: 2 x 15 @ 25lbs
    D3)Triceps Pressdown: 2 x 15 @ 50lbs

    Changed it up again this week. Upping the intensity while dropping some volume. JM Press felt oddly light despite adding weight (and dropping reps) today. Didn't really push any of the assistance work (wanted today to be pretty easy), but it was still a great lift. Back has been feeling great but didn't wanna do bent over rows with a bar to keep stress off the lower back. The OHP and Pull ups were tossed in to get a feel and the last tri set was done real controlled and was fairly easy (but just those couple sets pumped me up). Intensity (weight) will build next week then hopefully top off in two weeks then I will hit a deload (should be the end of the log ).


    Diet:

    3300 Calories


    Supplement Notes:

    -4 FT + Na-R-ALA upon waking.
    -6 NO + 3 Drive pre-workout. 3 Drive prior to last meal of the day.
    -Lower reps led to less of a pump, but I was surprised how much pump hit me with just the two sets of my Ds at the end. I wasn't aiming for much but still got it...
    -No stomach discomfort at all.
    -Libido jumping up even more right now. Past week been a little crazy.
    -Vascularity is up again. Really surprised how prominent some of these veins are currently. Must be some healthy doses of nitrates and extra in the NO Uptake (and with the added forskolin and icariin in Drive helping add to that currently).

    Random notes:
    -Tried a RecoverPro Lemon sample today. Wasn't very impressed. Wasn't bad, but wasn't as good as some of the reviews. Mixed up with not too much problem after sitting for a bit.
    -Going to aim for a deload in several weeks. The changing of assistance has continued to keep me fresh (weights feel light, no joint pains, no serious knots, or loss of motivation) but still feel I will have to take one eventually. Hopefully it will coincide with the end of the log (as planned). Finally feel I am getting a little better grasp on my weaknesses and hope to address them over the coming weeks and months.

    I have never done band work before. It seems like it would be an odd transition from free weights to band and then back again. I guess that's a good thing though, always good to keep the body guessing.

    Free Test + Drive is almost too much libido for one man. Hopefully you have a healthy outlet...

    Ya my shoulders have been feeling awesome but still wanted to give them an easier ME (my workout partner's shoulder was acting up) and the band allows less weight at the bottom easing the shoulder stress. I will be adding bands for DE work as well, the ME was just spur of the moment and went well.

    More experimenting going on in this log than when I typically run one for someone, and I hope that isn't much of a problem, but things have been great so I am trying to be intuitive and go with feel (on top of my base plans).

    January 9:


    1 scoop Origin + 1 scoop Craze + 4 NO Uptake + 3 Drive pre-workout today. Took 3 Neovar + 2 NO Uptake post-workout.


    Training:


    DE Lower:

    -Squats @ 185lbs w/Chains: 8 sets x 2 w/45-60s rest.
    -Clean Style Deadlifts @ 205lbs w/Pro Short Mini Bands: 8 sets x 2 w/45-60s rest.

    Box and chains were added today. Chains totaled only 30-40lbs at the top but added them just for the heck of it. Will add more chains next week.

    Funny how much a week can change. I was worried about the back last week but it felt really good. Weights were moving fast today. Solid work.

    Assistance work:

    B1)SLDL: 3 x 15 @ 175lbs
    B2)Pull Ups: 4 x 5 @ BWT
    C1)Reverse Sled Pulls: 2 x 30yds @ 320lbs + Sled
    C2)Band Good Morning: 2 x 30 @ Green Band
    C3)Hanging Leg Raise: 2 x 12

    SLDL was similar but not as slow and controlled. Really attempted to pop the hips through to drive the weight up past the knees. Pull ups were more as active recovery to help get some blood into my lats and stretch.

    Switched up the other exercises because I find the hanging leg raise is the best movement for my abs. Need to more good mornings so went with some banded work to get back into the groove and will be adding good mornings probably as soon as next month.


    Diet:

    3300 as usual.


    Supplement Notes:

    -4 Free Test + Na-RALA upon waking.
    -4 NO Up. + 3 Drive pre-workout, 2 NO Up post. 3 Drive + 2 Slin-sane prior to final meal.
    -Pump wasn't extreme today (and my forearms weren't pumped to death) but I got a nice overall pump going on.
    -I did feel extremely good. Had to resist just doing more than planned. The endurance was very high. Sled work was still easy at 30 yards (usually anything over 20 yards demolishes me) and I hardly even got to 45s for each of my DE sets.
    -No sides or anything to note of that sort in awhile. Things are humming along very effectively.
    -Thirst is still up and I seem to require large levels of water, upping my intake has seemed to keep things going without a hitch.

    Random Notes:
    -Been a really busy last few days and I was a little more fatigued than usual so I crushed 1 scoop Origin + 1 scoop Craze and it was a very nice combo. Taste wasn't as good as Origin on its own, but I got great energy plus the mood elevation and focus I get on Craze.
    -Really think I have a good feel for how effective Free Test and NO Uptake have been so far. This stack so far has been awesome for performance enhancing and just making my training more effective. I have altered some of my original plans on the training (higher reps, shorter rest assistance work, etc) due to the very nice endurance factor I have seen over the first month. The added Drive seems to be increasing this as well, but NO Uptake really seemed to boost this a noticeable level pretty quickly. Free Test seems to be a great "base" product with great overall effects, while I feel it is the NO Uptake having the biggest effect directly on training so far.

    Nice workout and great feedback on the supplements. It can be hard to tell how an individual supplement works when you use a stack like this, but each of these has certain areas where you will notice them.

    How's your body composition at this point? Any changes?

    Funny you bring that up...I was going to comment on what appears to be a change (slight leaning out) so far this week but I wanted to wait for the week to end to make sure it was concrete and not just looking better on one day. Possibly due to diet being more standardized (as opposed to all the changes during the holidays) and dropping some water, but will be more sure after this weekend if it sticks.

    You should really post it in the Testify promo going on. Just a thought.

    Saw that thread..was hoping to post a review in there. How long does it go on for? If it ends soon I'll write something up otherwise I will have a nice end of the month review on all this so far.




    Jan. 11:



    Took 2 scoops ABC + 2 scoops Origin + 6 NO Uptake + 3 Drive pre-workout today. Took 3 Neovar post-workout.


    Training:


    DE Upper:

    -Bench Press @ 105lbs + Bands: 8 sets x 3 w/60s rest.

    Went with bands on this (will use for this next mini wave of DE). Warmed up and added small increments until I got to 105 and felt any more might slow down the concentric action too much. Really hammered these out today. Form was stellar on 99% and felt great (bringing low to chest, keeping entire body tight, and driving up fast).

    Assistance work:

    B1)CGBP: 3 x 10 @ 175lbs
    B2)Scap Pull Ups: 3 x 10 @ BWT
    C1)Shoulder Press: 2 x 15 @ 35lbs
    C2)Inverted Row: 3 x 15 @ BWT
    D1)Rear Delt Raises: 2 x 15 @ 15lbs
    D2)Incline DB Curl: 2 x 15 @ 25lbs
    D3)Triceps Wide Grip Underhand Pressdown: 2 x 15 @ 35lbs

    Changed it up from last week. Still feel the endurance factor on this stack is incredible so didn't drop reps down too low (next month will probably stay around 10-12 as the highest rep range). The close grip work today was pretty rough. I feel my triceps have been taking a beating lately (more focus on them) so I may be starting to overreach (planned). The subscap pull-ups were a random thought today, I started my pull ups and at the top was like I haven't done these in forever so went with that change up. Vid below demonstrates close to what I did but my eccentric phase wasn't as long.

    Hammered some shoulder press with neutral grip with inverted rows in succession with short rest. Got an awesome back contraction with each rep on the inverted rows (great mind muscle connection overall today).

    Finished with a tri-set of rear delts, tris, and bis as usual per this log. I was already crazy pumped all over so didn't push the weight very high but kept nice controlled motions on all three. Was a painful way to end today.


    Diet:


    Been moving more of my CHO around my workout and less at later meals just as a change of pace. More just to change some meals I eat and to keep from getting tired of the same schedule.


    Supplement Notes:

    -4 FT + 1 Na-R-ALA upon waking.
    -6 NO Up + 3 Drive pre-workout is a money combo. Got a nice dense pump going pretty quick. It is almost addicting. I am not a guy who chases pumps but have really enjoyed them on this run so far.
    -Been sticking with the higher reps longer than I usually do (don't enjoy them too much so compliance can waver). Been keeping the rest intervals quite short throughout most things (other than ME work) and throughout the log have noticed a decreased RPE. Heart rate seems lower and respiration is not as intense as when I first started. I remember the first tri-set during this log...I got quite a dizzy head despite it not being that intense (man I was out of shape). Pump is very high throughout but am able to keep pushing reps out regardless.
    -Veins, veins, veins. Honestly want to use NO Up after or during the end of my next cut. Based on how veiny I am now it should be crazy.
    -Bumped up to 7 drive (3 at one dose 4 at another) the last couple days. 4 at one time did seem to irritate my stomach just a tad (hence why I haven't tried 4 pre-workout). May bump to 8 if I don't notice much with tonight's dose (not very bad last night so may have adjusted quickly).

    Side notes:
    -Origin kicked in hard again today. I really like it so far. Cherry Origin + Watermelon ABC tastes awesome together and therefore I am pretty excited to try Creignite + Origin one day.
    -Will check weight change tomorrow morning..interested to see what it says.

    Another great workout! The quality of your workouts seems to be improving overall, so that's a positive sign. A lot of that is owed to your diet of course, but you have a pretty solid supplement stack going (even in addition to the AppNut stuff).

    Are you a stim junkie? 2 scoops of Origin seems like a lot, but whatever works for you! That Origin and Core ABC combo is super solid though. I have not tried Origin yet, but I will get around to it at some point. With pwo's it seems like I am always either reviewing/logging something or lately beta testing for Uncut. Uncut is a handful for sure. I will see if I can get you some samples once it's available.

    I wouldn't say a stim junkie but I am very stim resistant. Takes a lot to get me to "feel" stims. That is why I tend to stick to stim-free pre-workouts and things that really enhance focus. That is why I have found Origin impressive I can feel it kick in rather than the subtle effects of most. Usually I get hit with nausea or other jitters on super high stim products even if I don't get much energy out of them.

    I feel in the zone these last couple months. Kicked some work issues out the way and feel in control of my future, which has directly helped my training. The products are definitely a component in that though.

    why is it if you use more than average, you gotta be a junkie?

    what about the guys with natural higher tolerance levels, due to individual metabolism, rather than too much exposure?

    I ask because I am a stim junkie myself. I often use more than I need to - partly due to high tolerance (even after taking a month off) and partly because I feel better with higher stim intake. I was a fan of DMAA myself and miss that euphoric buzz. Our new pwo, Uncut should have that same feeling to it, but of course it's DMAA-free. We are just about done with the beta testing, but I loved how it made me feel. I have a feeling it's going to be pretty popular.

We are just about done with the beta testing, but I loved how it made me feel. I have a feeling it's going to be pretty popular.
    ahhh i understand man, no worries.
    it sucks to be naturally tolerant, and need more of a product than the average joe does, just to feel the same way.
    i personally just don't care for the term stim junkie, delineates negative images of addiction to me.

    altho - certainly i do not disagree there is a mentality of excess that bb'ing can sometimes perpetuate

    Honestly have been using more stims the past half year than usual. Usually do not use them just due to lack of efficacy..have found a few good combos recently though.




    Jan. 12:


    1 scoop Craze + 1 scoop Origin + 4 NO Uptake + 3 Drive 30 minutes pre-workout. 3 Neovar + 2 NO Up post-workout.


    Training:


    ME Lower:

    -Reverse Band Squat: 425lbs x 2.

    Never done reverse band work. Had no idea what to truly expect (have read up on it but you know). Went with a low box just to maintain constant depth due to changes in ease with lowering. Felt really good, but probably should have quit at 415. Got three (second was hard but third rep was easier) so I decided to try more. Couldn't bang out a third at 425 unfortunately. No idea how to determine the exact weight being taken off due to the bands but it was an interesting experience. Liked having to unrack the bar with it real heavy and keep everything really tight, but the lowering and it getting easier was nice on the back and allowed me to drive out the hole.

    Assistance work:

    B1)Hip Thrust: 3 x 10 @ 205lbs.
    B2)BB Shrugs: 3 x 12 @ 205lbs
    C1)Reverse Hyper: 2 x 10 @ 25lbs
    C2)Stir The Post: 2 x 8/8
    C3)Reverse Sled Pull: 2 x ~20yds @ 360lbs + sled.

    Nice additions today. Haven't done the hip thrusts in awhile so took a set to get used to (even after warming up). Didn't push this instead held for a pause at the top. Decided to add a bit more weight on the sleds due to the ease of the last several sessions. Was hammered by the end of the workout but still felt great.


    Diet:

    3300 should be achieved today.


    Supplement Notes:

    -4 FT + Na-R-ALA upon waking.
    -4 pre for NO Uptake with 3 Drive.
    -Lower reps than usual but still got a solid pump and some great mind muscle contraction.
    -Weight was down a half pound from last week.
    -Overall I have been trying to push hings to grind me down before some deloading but regardless I feel awesome most of the day. Some interesting mood increases.
    -Strength seems to be still moving up on leg days without too much struggle. Interested to see max outs on the conventional deadlift and squat.
    -Should note that I haven't mentioned it much, but noticing great recovery between workouts. Not much DOMS between workouts and not feeling run down throughout.

    Other Random Notes:
    -Wanted to try the Craze + Origin combo again today. Great combo and workout was awesome.

    I can roll with that. Makes you sound well versed in the realm of energy boosting supplements. I, myself, claim to be a stim connoisseur.

    Jan. 14:



    1 scoop Craze + 1 scoop Origin + 5g SNS Leucine + 6 NO Uptake + 3 Drive pre-workout today. 3 Neovar post-workout.


    Training:


    ME Upper:

    -Reverse Band Bench Press: 265lbs x 3
    -Again new exercise. Wasn't sure how it would work out so I went conservative on the band tension. Didn't seem to be helping very much at all at the top of the movement but I could feel it helping at the bottom. Moved up pretty easily so may have been more helpful than I thought. Was a great way to work on form with it being easier off the chest and felt I got a great back arch and tightness today. Great start to the workout.

    Assistance work:

    B1)JM Press: 5 x 8 @ 145lbs
    B2)Chest supported row: 5 x 10 @ 115lbs
    C1)Shoulder Raises: 2 x 15 @ 20lbs
    C2)Pull Ups: 2 x 12 @ BWT
    D1)Rear Delt Raise: 2 x 12 @ 17.5lbs
    D2)Hammer Curl: 2 x 12 @ 30lbs
    D3)Triceps Pressdown: 2 x 12 @ 65lbs

    Gym was hot and muggy, which really drained me towards the end. I actually even did the wrong assistance work at the very end for rear delts (which isn't really a big deal), came home wrote it down, looked at last week and just shook my head.

    Either way I was feeling pretty beat by the end of the lift. Was sweating an insane amount and feeling light headed (I pounded a ton of water after the workout and felt better within half an hour). JM Press felt easier than last week and the rows also were easier (so I focused on a harder contraction at the top). Still, I felt beat by the end of my Bs so I decided to opt out of OHP and just did some front raises (not straight in front and with the thumbs pointed up). Great pump and endurance didn't hinder me despite feeling like crap.


    Diet:

    Diet will be different in the sense that instead of eating my first meal I just pounded my pre-workout drink and headed to the gym fasted. Total intake and macros shouldn't be different but just in a smaller feeding time.


    Supplement Notes:

    -4 FT + Na-R-ALA upon waking.
    -6 NO + 3 Drive pre-workout. Took the Drive much closer to the FT than usual (due to change in gym time), and got some slight discomfort. Didn't effect my lift and was gone by the time I got to the gym anyways.
    -Solid pump despite some of the lowest reps since the start of the log. Triceps were solid, back and shoulders were quite pumped. Even two sets of curls blew my arms up.
    -Gym was hot so I lifted in a sleeveless for the first time in forever (typically wear a short sleeve and sweatshirt, but it was so hot I didn't ). While it just felt weird with no sleeves, I did see some intense shoulder veins and definition. May be leaner in my upper body than I had thought.
    -Sleep has been pretty deep lately. Feeling pretty rested when I wake, but having a little trouble getting out of bed. Would rather just lay there and go back to sleep.

    Random notes:
    -Felt run down today. May have been related to the gym's temperature, but have noticed some signs of it creeping in (wanting to get more sleep being the biggest). Overall that is kind of to be expected. I have been pushing it pretty hard and am coming up on a planned deload soon. If I wasn't feeling at least somewhat beat up I may have underestimated the amount of work I needed to be doing. Still felt it should be mentioned as I am surprised with how heavy I have been going how it hasn't hit sooner.
