  1. Wahoo's back getting pumped w/ Hemavol & Compete (Sponsored)


    First off big thanks out to Vaughn and iForce for doing this promotion. I haven't used hemavol before, and only used compete when I bought about a third to a half a tub (open container) off someone in supp auction.

    I had my first doses yesterday and damn, iForce got the taste right on these. I diluted my compete in a full gallon of water and it still had an amazing taste. Normally when I put anything flavored in a gallon I can barely taste anything, but this was as strong as if I had put it in just a glass. Awesome! At first I didn't notice too much from the hemavol, was working chest...but when I hit biceps I got some strong pumps, a little more than I would normally see from my pwo stack. Not too much difference than what I normally see endurance-wise. Rest was between 30 seconds and 2 minutes. On 30 second sets i did 4x10, 2 minutes 5x5, and 1 minute and 1.5 minute breaks I did 4x8 or 3x12.

    I have also figured out recently that bulk lclt gives me the runs like crazy when I take it pre @ 2g. I don't know if it's because this isn't bulk powder, or if the doses are split up, or what but yesterday no runs which is f'ing great.

    Today was an off day, back on tomorrow with hams/calves/abs

  3. Sorry about the inactivity, work has been crazy lately. Luckily I work at a gym so getting my workouts in aren't a problem. This week has been solid as far as making progress in my lifts. Bench, squat, deads are all up this week. Pump and endurance have been solid, just did Chest & bis right now and my bicep pump was above average. I have been bulking and putting on a little bit of body fat so obviously that will take some vascularity away but the pump is still there and strong. I have no problems in recovery between sets or between workouts, and I'm left with plenty of energy post workout. So far so good with this stuff. Off day tomorrow, hams/calves/abs on Wednesday

    nice, with breaks being that short, you should see compete shine as an intra. me and the gf switched over to 30 seconds between mega drop sets and noticed quite an improvement in our recovery on days using compete and days not using compete. i'm in brotha. cant wait to see how the stack treat ya.

  9. Looking good so far man!

  10. Wooooo Loudy is finally feeling better (been sick for the past 2 weeks).... What's going on here?

    5x5 were 2mins everything else shorter. The whole workout still took me about 1hr 10 mins plus cardio after...I think I take too much time between exercises, probably 2-3 mins at least. But yeah it feels good, I'm tired but I recover before the next set

    I think you're right on that, intra set recovery is very good so far. Less fatigue in subsequent sets and more endurance than normal

  13. Lifting shoulders right now, yesterday was hams, calves, and abs. One thing I will say is my workouts are getting shorter by about 10 minutes but I'm still doing the same number of sets which tells me I'm taking a little less time to recover in between exercises. Pretty nice

  14. I notice the same thing. I can rest less between sets, and my workouts get completed quicker. This is beneficial because you get to spend less time in the gym, and you're actually forcing your body to do more work in a short amount of time which = GAINZZZZ

  17. Thanks for subbing guys, this has been a good ride so far.

    Doing back/tris right now and am taking 2 min breaks in between 5x5 sets of bent rows and I swear my aerobic capacity and recovery ability is increasing. I feel fully recovered 45-60 seconds after my set and spend the rest of the break time kinda looking around and goofing off on AM. Next week I'm going to experiment with cutting my 2 minute rest periods down to 1.5 minutes and see how performance goes then.

    doing the same amount of work, in a shorter period of time = more total work performed. Thats the overload principle! I bet your gains skyrocket now.

    I normally hate short rest periods, but it seems like when I've got Compete in my Blender Bottle I'm ready to take another sip and jump into another set. I personally had a killer bi/tri day yesterday using some John Meadows Mountain Dog principles - max rest between sets = 45 seconds. Didn't have a single problem keeping the periods that short.

  23. Chest and bis again today, weight is jumping up a little too fast for my taste...up to 208.2, pants are getting a little more snug so I'm thinking it may be time to cut the cals just a bit. Strength is going up, little by little. Natty gains i guess.

    Pumps and endurance have stayed pretty consistent so far, workouts are still on point. I will start the shorter rest periods on wednesday with RDLs and Good mornings. Not sure if it's such a good idea to do this with things that hit the low back so hard, but we'll see how it goes.

  24. Last set of dips, 5xBW+90 I have done better but I was supersetting this with bb bench with a dead stop on my chest

  25. Solid set of dips. Especially considering you were doing a superset with BB bench (with a deadstop nonetheless). Has Compete been helping you push through these kind of sets on a noticeable, consistent basis?

    Yeah Id give it about a 10-15% improvement in intraset reocovery and the ability to eek out that last rep throughout my entire workout

  27. Off day today, hittin it hard again in the morning w/ hams/calves/abs

    Definitely not as bad as I thought it was going to be. 90 second rest periods on rdls, good mornings, and between supersets of lying leg curls and sumo rdls. Was able to up weight just a little and decrease the rest period. Between the supersets it was a little harder to catch my breath but still was good.

    Did a total of 14 sets of hams and they were a little tight this morning but no more soreness than normal. Also did calves and abs and a little cardio as well. Squeezing these workouts in to a shorter period of time feels great, my wife always gets pissed at me spending so much time working out. It would be even shorter but it takes me 3-4 minutes in between exercises just to change setups and weights unfortunately
