Bolt hits up NO Uptake, Free Test, and IGF-2

Page 5 of 8 First ... 34567 ... Last



  1. Jan. 19:


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


    Training:


    ME Lower:

    -Reverse Band Deadlift: 465lbs x 1.

    Once again a new exercise variation for myself. Took awhile to set the pins and the bands at the right height (for how I assume it should be). Tried to have it with minimal help at the very top of the pull, but it still had some (no idea how much). Started conventional but after getting through some warm ups switched to sumo. Back was feeling tight to start (and felt better in sumo) but by the end felt much better. Need to increase other warm up activities to change that in the future. Still stopped at 465, which was pretty clean, because I didn't feel the need to push past that.

    Assistance work:

    B1)Hip Thrust: 3 x 10 @ 225lbs.
    B2)BB Shrugs: 3 x 12 @ 205lbs
    C1)Reverse Hyper: 2 x 12 @ 25lbs
    C2)Stir The Post: 2 x 10/10

    Great assistance work during this lift. Turf was taken up by a track class so no sled pulling unfortunately.


    Diet:

    3200 and a couple drinks at a friends Bday get together. Nothing much (I don't party hard ).


    Supplement Notes:

    -4 FT + Na-R-ALA upon waking.
    -4 pre for NO Uptake with 3 Drive.
    -Very solid workout. No major pump but hammies, glutes, and lower back were full of blood by the end.
    -Despite being out late and having to get up early for work saturday morning I didn't feel fatigued during my lift. Maybe the fatigue earlier this week was something else? Still going to hit a deload now regardless.

    Other Random Notes:
    -Weight was down a pound from last week. Possibly water or maybe fat as I feel I am at the leanest I have been in this log.
    -Seeing lots of people I haven't seen in awhile saying "looking huge bro!". Must be doing something right.


  2. So this week upcoming is the deload? Can't really figure out why the fatigue earlier and not today. Well, that's life. Good work! Gotta be doing something right when the comments start coming around.

    Ya I felt pretty good today but a little tired. The lower volume and intensity will serve me well even if I don't entirely feel I want to do it.



    Jan. 21:



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


    Training:


    ME Upper:

    -Shoulder Saver Press: 235lbs x 3
    -Deloading so built up slowly and ended at 235. Not a PR but wasn't maximal effort for three so impressed. Could have got more and got a PR but taking the deload in stride.

    Assistance work:

    B1)HS Incline Press: 3 x 12 @ 140lbs
    B2)Chest supported row: 3 x 12 @ 95lbs
    C1)Band Pull Apart: 3 x 20 @ Red Band
    C2)Hammer Curl: 2 x 20 @ 20lbs
    C3)Triceps Pressdown: 2 x 20 @ 50lbs

    Felt much better today than last week during this lift. Changed some things up (holiday so the gym was PACKED). Everything was done with not much struggle and dropped some exercises to get rid of volume. Most things were done with no lockout just slow and pumping blood into the muscle. Felt like I wanted to still crush something but really pumped at the end, which was the way I was looking for this deload to go.


    Diet:

    3200+ Will stick with normal diet but may deviate if hunger calls for it (I get a little more liberal during deloads and mentally deload as well by not over thinking my diet. Don't measure just go by what I usually do and add or subtract based on feel).


    Supplement Notes:

    -5 FT + Na-R-ALA upon waking. (Final 5 caps. Either got an extra or took the wrong amount somewhere during the log ).
    -6 NO + 3 Drive pre-workout.
    -Pump was solid and I felt great throughout the lift. More vascular than ever today.
    -May bump up Drive from 8 caps a day due to having more of it than anything else to see if there are any differences (not sure I'll even be able to tell but have extra).

    Random notes:
    -Not much to report due to deloading but slept great last night and don't feel too run down. I was up ALL Saturday night and slept in late Sunday and took a nap so I still am a little fatigued (not usual to be out all night for me).
    -Hope to be ready to roll after this deload, especially because I feel like I could stubbornly push through this and get some more solid workouts but probably wouldn't be best in the long run.
    -Plan to hit legs Wed like usual with most of it just being light work and sled pulling.

  4. Should note I came home from work with some insane arm/shoulder vascularity. Looking real lean right now may have to take more pics for comparison.

    Always good to see more pics.

    Hey Bolt, you have run a great log here. Don't worry about trying to finish up the Drive in a rush just because you have extra. Use it however you see fit, or even save it for later.

    I am probably going to count to see how many caps I have left...depending on that I will determine what I do. I'd like to run 6-8 weeks of high dose Drive with some other stuff I have planned this summer so may just save the extra (if I have a decent amount) at the end for that.

    Thanks guys! Felt it was a great fit and had been patiently waiting for the right time and place.

    Woke up today and had no Free Test to take...was a sad feeling. Popped 3 Drive + 1.5g SAN ALCAR + 1 cap SAN Na-RALA. Still it isn't the same.

    well done sir
    being comfortable and believing in the company you represent should be status quo for this industry..unfortunately not always the case

    PES could not have picked a better qualified, honest individual

  15. Hey congrats brotha! You'll be great for the team. That combo was worth a short but I just don't think it'll bring the vascularity and excitement of Free Test. Sad day.

    Thanks! Ya not ready to cycle off ALCAR but there is definitely more to FT than my lil combo.



    January 23:


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


    Training:


    DE Lower:

    -Squats @ 190lbs: 8 sets x 2 w/45-60s rest.
    -Clean Style Deadlifts @ 205lbs: 8 sets x 2 w/45-60s rest.

    Back to 50% on the DE work. Need to be more exact with the progression of the three week waves starting now.

    Assistance work:

    B1)Reverse Sled Pulls: 3 x 30yds @ 250lbs + Sled
    B2)Reverse Hyper: 3 x 20 @ 10lbs
    C1)Forward Sled Pulls: 3 x 30yds @ 250lbs + Sled
    C2)Abs 3 sets (Used this time to experiment a couple different exercises)

    Really wanted to just hit DE work and a lot of light sled dragging. Minimal rest and not very hard just wanted to get the blood pumping and heart rate up a bit but not kill myself. Mission accomplished.


    Diet:

    ~3400. Food choice led to a little more fat than usual and a little less CHO. Had some solid Chili and Pulled Pork/Chicken for a couple of my meals.


    Supplement Notes:

    -1.5g SAN ALCAR + 1 SAN Na-RALA + 3 Drive
    -Early morning and was a little tired before the lift but Origin kicked me into gear and everything went smoothly. Took 6 NO Uptake pre unlike usual for leg days on mistake..luckily wasn't an intense workout but got a solid pump during my assistance work.
    -Weights didn't feel heavy or hard and left feeling like I worked but not beat up.
    -10 Drive total. No stomach discomfort.
    -Also added ZMK since I no longer get any Selenium or Zinc through Free Test.


    Random Notes:
    -I hate deloads. I need this but I hate just doing work and not pushing it...blah. May have a little cold (had a swollen lymph node, congestion, etc.), but it hasn't really effected anything and if I do have one it is real minor. Hope to keep it that way.
    -Feel I did quite a bit of learning with this training during this log. Some things can definitely be refined and improved but results were still great.
    -Back feels pretty good today.
    -Deload makes for not very exciting updates...will post final review soon! And have some cool non-log related stuff happening this weekend.

  17. Jan. 25:


    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 @ 125lbs: 8 sets x 3 w/60s rest.

    Solid work. Slowly getting more comfortable with the speed work. 60s rest is a generous number...some may have been as short as 30s since I felt great today and wasn't fatiguing at all.

    Assistance work:

    B1)Cable Chest Flies: 2 x 20
    B2)Seated Machine Row: 2 x 20
    C1)Front Raise: 2 x 20
    C2)Free Motion Lat Pulldown: 2 x 20
    D1)Rear Delt Raise: 2 x 20
    D2)DB Curl: 2 x 20
    D3)Triceps Pressdown: 2 x 20

    Workout was a breeze. Had to restrain myself from doing more. This hardly even took 45 minutes including my warming up before the lift and stretching after. Weights weren't recorded as I just wanted light weight, a pump, and feeling fresh upon leaving.


    Diet:

    3300 if nothing comes up.


    Supplement Notes:

    -1.5g SAN ALCAR + 3 Drive + 1 Na-R-ALA upon waking.
    -6 NO Up + 3 Drive pre-workout.
    -Veins were back at the most prominent in awhile. Got an intense pump even with the easy effort today. Not the craziest but impressive for overall work done.
    -My NO Uptake bottle is upsettingly light...getting down to the last several days I fear.
    -Been at 10 caps of Drive pretty much all week and have no stomach issues.

    Side notes:
    -Think I am recovering from a slight cold. Everyone around me at work and home are crazy sick though so it is impressive that I haven't caught this horrible thing going around. Hoping to avoid it....
    -Took advantage of being caught up on most of my work yesterday by going to sleep the earliest in awhile. Got a solid 9 hours sleep and felt amazing when I woke up. Mood is up, not having much trouble falling asleep, and feeling like I want to lift some heavier stuff soon.
    -Here is a final update preview with pics from weeks 1, 5, then this week (8?). Biggest improvement is still the fullness between the first two pics, but feel I dropped a little fat in the shorter time frame between the last two pictures.

  18. Great work as always man. I can't get the best look on my phone, but improved fullness, vascularity, and cuts are apparent from what I can see.

  19. The pics are impressive for sure. Let's be honest, you were in great shape to start with, so it's not like we are going to see miracles. That being said, you have managed to improve on an already solid physique in the last couple months. Muscle fullness and improved vascularity are easy to see. Great job Bolt!

    Thanks guys. It is true that being at this for awhile even though I am still kind of a youngster means that the gains come much slower. I think the big thing was how the endurance really allowed me to hit higher reps to a greater extent than I am used to, helping make some nice gains due to such a different stimulus than I am used to.

    Hoping to write up a nice ol Bolt-style final review soon. Got some cool stuff with some photo shoot and blog stuff going on tomorrow tho! I am pretty excited.

    And since I know my last log ended with discussions of TV shows just thought I'd toss out that Spartacus is back tonight...finally caught up on the last season earlier in the week. Way too much TV watching for me lately.

    I know we are both addicted to TV shows. I love watching whole seasons at a time. I have actually started to weed out shows and watch less new stuff. I have only picked up two new shows this season, so I am still at a net loss. I have the first episode of The Following on my DVR and Banshee is looking good after a couple episodes.

    Ya I have caught up in way too many things and usually let things build up. The Following is one of the very few I plan to watch as it comes out (The Walking Dead and this last season of Spartacus are the others for now..).

    Dexter is one of very few shows that are better than the books. Awesome series. Netflix is going to ruin me. I can waste a Sunday watching a whole season of Archer and feel accomplished. That's a problem.
