    Welcome back Jiigzz. It seems to be going well so far (1.5 weeks in). I've definitely been getting more DOMS than with my past training. DW is a few weeks ahead of me and "blowing up".

    This log sucks. I am out!
    I told you I'd struggle with all the added pressure your presence brings.

    I'll have an update later tonight

  4. Day 4

    I noticed that my appearance has started to tighten up a bit compared to a few days ago (starting pics). I didn’t weigh-in this morning, but I have a feeling that some of the extra weight I was holding is starting to shed. I had a similar response within the first week the last time I ran VERSA-1; by the 7th day I was noticeably leaner. The only other physical change to note at this point is some vascularity starting to increase. I developed a good amount of prominent veins in my lower abdomen and upper thighs running V-1 and I’m beginning to see a few creeping back. I’m looking forward to seeing what develops with 8 continuous weeks of supplementation. Compound 20 added to my vascularity in the past, so I’m thinking this combo has the potential to have me looking freakish lol.



    Supplementation

    VERSA-1: 1 cap 45 mins pre workout

    Compound 20: 2 caps 1 hour pre workout (somewhat empty stomach), 2 caps 7 hours later with food

    Forskolin-95: 1 cap (25mg) in the morning (empty stomach), 1 cap 20 mins pre workout.

    -I actually stayed at 50mg yesterday and did the same today. I’m going to wait a few more days before upping my dose to 75mg. This could lessen the chance of any potential side effects (headaches/mud butt lol), but I’m really doing it so I'll have more to bring my dose higher later in the run.

    Pre workout mix: 2 scoops Craze/3 scoops Core ABC (started drinking with V-1 and finished on the ride to the gym)

    ALCAR-500: 2g 30 mins pre workout

    Modern BCAA: 2 scoops intra workout



    I noticed my mood and focus start to elevate as I was driving to the gym. This carried over to a solid workout, where I felt great and remained locked into my lifts from start to finish. I’ve actually been in a great mood ever since and hope to see it continue. A lot of my current training concentrates heavily on the stretch/squeeze of certain exercises and the added focus today had me hitting each rep better than last week. I’m still perfecting some of the exercises, so that has to be taken into consideration as well.


    DB Twist Press
    60x10
    65x10
    65x10
    70x8

    BB Incline Bench (ROM: 2-3 inches from chest to 75% lockout)
    2 warm-up x8
    175x8
    185x8
    185x8

    Yeah, it's very different than what I'm used to, but a lot of fun. The volume is really going to pick up in a few weeks. I just sent you some info on it.

  9. Day 5

    I woke up today with a good amount of DOMS throughout my chest. My current training is resulting in a lot more muscle soreness than I was previously feeling and has less volume per session as well (for now).

    I forgot to check my weight this morning, so I decided to hold off until tomorrow. My appearance is still looking a little tighter and veins are becoming more visible.


    Supplementation


    VERSA-1: 1 cap 45 mins pre workout

    Compound 20: 2 caps 1 hour pre workout, 2 caps 8 hours later with a meal

    Forskolin-95: 1 cap in the morning (empty stomach), 1 cap 20 mins pre workout

    Pre workout mix: 2 scoops Craze/2 scoops Core ABC/2 scoops Protocol V2 (started drinking with V-1 and finished on the ride to the gym)

    ALCAR-500: 2g 15 mins pre workout

    Modern BCAA: 2 scoops intra workout



    I began to feel a thermo effect on my way to the gym. It was probably the strongest Iíve felt since staring supplementation. Right as I arrived, my focus seemed to peak and I couldnít wait to start lifting. My mental clarity was definitely at a higher level than earlier in the week, and I just felt great overall. Todayís workout was arm focused and I was happy with the results. I honestly donít think I couldíve hit each rep much better and it had my arms blown up. So far my current training and VERSA-1 seem like a great match.



    ~30 second rest intervals between all sets on all exercises


    -first 2 exercises were performed set for set

    Cross Body Hammer Curls
    45x10
    50x10
    55x10
    Rope Pushdowns (1-2 sec squeeze)
    70x12
    90x12
    110x12

    -switching between the 2 exercises had my arms full of blood and felt like a great way to start things off


    EZ Preacher Curls
    110x10
    120x8
    120x8


    HS Seated Dips
    180x15
    270x10
    290x8 (3 sec negatives)


    BB Curls (3 sec negatives)
    70x10
    80x8


    EZ Incline Tri Extensions (pause in the stretched position/take lower behind head each set)
    60x15
    70x15
    70x15

    -these felt a lot easier than last week


    The pump and vascularity achieved were both strong; however vascularity has been better in the past.


    I was riding the high from my workout until my car wouldn't start... I guess my battery is weak (the car is only 2 years old) and combined with the cold weather, it just wouldn't fire up. I took it surprisingly well and had someone jump it.

    All posts by mattys4 are the result of a very creative imagination and should not be considered advice nor taken seriously

  11. That's a bummer about your car. I've had that happen in the past, that's a good reminder. I'll probably need a new one as I head back to the mid-west from this CA sunshine at the end of the month. So, do I say thanks? Lol

    Thanks man. I'm gonna try to keep repeating my pre workout dosing/timing from yesterday because I felt fantastic. It's the worst. I think my car was literally frozen. The computer was trying to tell me it was out of coolant as well...it was full.

    Bro, be careful with that. My car did that for a while, said coolant was empty but it was full. when the weather warmed up the gauge went back to normal. A few weeks later we got a cold snap and I went to turn my heat on & it didn't work and my temp gauge flew up. My tank with bone dry, I've had trouble with it since. I hope this isn't the case for you but wanted to give you a heads up. No coolant really bones your radiator lol

    Haha. Thanks for the heads up DW. The temp gauge never went up and the message went away, but I've got some coolant on standby just in case. The last thing I need is any car trouble. Luckily this has been the first issue I've had with my car.

    Tried the stretchers and scapula stretch pulldowns after deadlifting yesterday. People were looking at me and asking me what I was doing. I told them to check out mountain dog training on YouTube and also check out Versa-1 on Facebook. Great conversation starter and it felt great.

    It's awesome! I've trained the last few times in a tank and a lot of people have been asking what I've been doing (different exercises from MD and I usually train in 2 or 3 XL shirts, bidding the "goods")

    The question is, do people know who the AM "godfather" of mountain dog is?????

  22. I haven't actually done any of his programs, but have stolen stuff from Meadows articles and Youtube videos (exercises, band ideas, etc.). Some cool stuff.

    Have a nice 12 week program he wrote up to try someday once I get past my strength goals and hit powerlifting competition sometime this year.

    Here is his Youtube channel for anyone interested and need visual on how to accomplish some of the exercises he describes: http://www.youtube.com/user/mountaindog1?feature=watch

  23. Thanks for the link bolt. Lots of great stuff there. Good luck with the powerlifting too!

  24. Day 6

    Today was an off day from the gym, so there’s not a whole lot to report.


    I had a cap of VERSA-1 first thing this morning with some Focus XT. The combination gave me a nice mental boost and some energy. I’ve been pretty energetic all day, although my physical activity was limited to running a few errands.


    I weighed 212lbs (-2 lbs from Day 1) this morning. I believe the difference in weight is mainly due to shedding some excess water. It seems like my supplementation has something to do with it because my weight hadn’t budged for over a week prior (didn't drop calories either). For anyone that followed my previous log; my weight no longer peaks on the weekends and falls throughout the week. I don’t have a physical job anymore, so any weight fluctuation has been minimal. Because of this, I may attempt cardio for the first time in over a year…not a fan.

    I haven’t experienced any increased hunger or thirst at this point. I’m not sure, but I believe I had some mouth dryness and increased thirst around day 4 of my first bottle of V-1. I’m wondering if the big change in my activity level could be a factor.


    Compound 20 was taken twice with meals, spaced about 7 hours apart (4 caps total).

    Forskolin-95 was taken in the morning and will be taken again prior to bed. I think I’m going to increase my dose to 75mg per day, starting tomorrow. I didn’t have any issues at 50mg.


    I’ll be back in the gym tomorrow for a leg workout. It’s going to be brutal and I can’t wait. Last week I barely made it out of the gym and had to sit in my car for ~30 minutes until I felt physically and mentally ok to drive lol. I had a terrible time walking for 4 days and I’m pretty sure it was the sorest my legs have ever been.

  29. Did you tap the battery with a rod or something to try 'jump' it yourself? Hitting a battery tends to jolt in a little extra life unless the voltage is well under what it needs to start.

    Def monitor the water + coolant levels; last thing you want is a blown head.
