    Versa-1, Compound 20, Jacked Micro, USPowders


    Ladies & Gents-

    I just wrapped up a log with Nolvadren XT, PR-XT, and Vanillean. It went extremely well. This feature will be my journey through Versa-1, Compound 20, Jacked Micro, USPowders (Trib, Cissus, 1-carboxy).

    I've purchased half and won the Compound 20 and Jacked Micro.. I'll be doing a no bs review of all this. I generally like USP Labs stuff and think Anabolic Pump and P-Slin are great, but Prime did nothing for me. As of now I have a one months supply of this stack, but if things are going well, I may purchase more Versa-1 / Compound 20 and extend to 2 months. My 6 weeks of training consisted of a 3 day a week 5/3/1 split. Highlights include a couple singles of 510 deadlifting, a couple singles of 300 lbs decline press, and some reverse banded squats at 405 x 3. I focused mainly on strength with a lot of singles to triples, and dead stop type movements. Enter this stack, I will increase my training days to 4, and do something very similar to Jim Wendler's Boring But Big. I'm looking to finish off my re-comp and give my joints a break. I've lost about 10 lbs in the past 5 weeks or so, so I want to eat more at maintenance or just above in hopes to reset my metabolism and recomp a bit. I think the supplement stack and heavy volume from BBB will be the perfect storm.

    I'll train Wednesday/Fri/Sat/Sun. This week is a deload week and then the fun begins. Look forward to the journey, let me know if you guys have any questions.

    Thanks all.. excited to see how this goes. I have deload days today, Friday and Sunday, then a week from today the madness begins. As I mentioned, I will be going from 3 to 4 days training, and the volume is a bit increased due to the extra day. Hoping to eat just above "maintenance" because I've been dieting for a few months, and that the principle of G-Flux and my body wanting to add some mass will kick in. Training is as follows:

    Wednesday:
    Deadlift 5/3/1
    Box Squats 5 x 10
    Abs 5 x 10-20

    Friday:
    Bench 5/3/1
    Landmine Press 5 x 10
    DB Rows 5 x 10
    Curls 3 x 10
    Pushdowns 3 x 10
    Face Pulls 3 x 10

    Saturday:
    Squat 5/3/1
    Deadlift 5 x 10
    Abs 5 x 10-20

    Sunday:
    Landmine Press 5/3/1
    Bench or CGBP (haven't decided) 5 x 10
    Chins 5 x 10
    Curls 3 x 10
    Pushdowns 3 x 10
    Fashpulls 3 x 10

    nothing fancy and it's called boring but big for a reason... I really think that the volume of deadlifting and squatting is going to be killer. This isn't a lot more than my past training months, but a couple more sets and on squats vs leg press or barbell bench vs a hammer strength. We'll see how it goes...

    Saturday and Sunday I had deload / speed workouts. Saturday was decline bench focused, got in 5 sets of 5 between 40-60 percent of 1 rm. Today did 5 sets of 5 of squats and deads, all sets 40-60 percent of 1 rm. Smoked an easy 4 x 10 wide grip pullups on Saturday and grooved easily with landmine press for 4 sets of 15. Excited for the higher volume this cycle and what versa-1 and compound 20 have to offer!

    Start going heavy with my 3's week starting Wednesday. Vascularity is coming along and I've never really been that vascular. Hope to be lean and mean by the end of this!

    I think that Versa-1 will work very well with your new higher volume program. I noticed that I could do more volume on it and still recover for the next session, and others have noticed the same thing.

    That was factored into the plan! 5 sets of 10 dls and squats sounds painful lol

    Yellow Gold/Anabolic Pump are hard to surpass. Hope you sort out your cold promptly.

    Had my first workout yesterday.. stayed home from work and was a bit under the weather. I think it effected my pulling, but I also want to scale back the weight I use so the reps are a bit smoother. Weighed in at 196 to start.

    Deadlift-
    380 x 3
    435 x 3 (added belt)
    490 x 1 (I think the cold effected me and I shut it down after this was a bit of a struggle)

    Will probably adjust deadlift numbers down by ~3 lbs as I was supposed to hit 3 and prefer not coming close to failure. THis is a bit discouraging though as I moved two different singles of 510 a couple weeks ago and they felt a lot better than this.

    Squats-
    205 x 10
    205 x 10
    205 x 10
    205 x 10
    205 x 10

    owww.. as someone who isn't used to doing "high rep" squatting this was really a challenge. I shut it down after this. Was supposed to do some abs, but this really rocked my world lol.

    On to the next workout!

    Nice pulls man, especially for not feeling well. I'm sure you'll get the weight back up soon.

    Agreed with high rep squats. They're brutal!

    High rep squats are brutal. I see stars long before failing. Good work getting through 50 reps with 205.

    Saturday:

    Squats-
    245 x 3
    280 x 3
    315 x 3
    Deadlifts-
    315 x 4 sets x 10 reps (no belt)

    during that the manager came up and yelled at me saying he would cancel my gym membership because I was making too much noise. I apparently set my deadlifts down too loudly. I don't drop the weight, but I don't decelerate it a ton... he claimed if I can't set it down quietly it's probably "too heavy".. this was very frustrating and I'll be switching gyms in a few months when my contracts up.

    Sunday-

    Landmine Press-

    Wide Grip Pullups-
    bw x 10
    bw x 10
    bw x 10
    bw x 10
    bw x 10

    these were great.. I love being powerful on pullups... it's finally coming back, i moved quick and easy on these.. bodyweight around 196

    3 sets of 10 on curls and pushdowns

    3 sets of 10 face pulls

    Man...I think I would switch too. I feel so lucky to be at a gym where they encourage heavy lifting. It really makes a difference. Nice work so far. Anything to note about the stack yet?

    Sorry guys been super busy all week. I did get my workouts in.. highlights include working up to an easy 295 x 5 squatting. I'm playing with my form allowing my knees to track forward a little more to keep my torso upright per some of Brandon Lilly's videos. I also hit an easy 275 x 1 paused bench. I'll be retooling my programming for this week to start Brandon Lilly's Cube Method. I think I'm at a stage in my lifting career where to get to the next level I need to focus on speed and technique, just as much as pure strength. My lifts feel slow even when the weight is light. The cube seems like an awesome way to do all this and build your lifts without a ton of work above 90% so I'll feel fresher hopefully.

    Regarding the stack, nothing insane to report. Getting slightly leaner and moving weight decently, but nothing earth shattering. I'm going to keep on plugging away!
