MAN PR-XT 30-day log

Day Eleven of Thirty
"Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years!"
Things are ramping up. Seriously considering buying another bottle to get this ish on the high road. Feeling good all around, have a more positive disposition, good energy during the day and loving life more and more. (How much of this is PR-XT related, not quite sure, but I wasn't flying this high before. Granted, Nolvadren-XT was giving me a good boost, so it could be a combo of things. But, PR-XT's making me a believer.)
"Give me something to believe in!"
Muscle fullness, nice to meet you. So glad you could make it! Chest is nice and stout--not quite where I want it, but a start--from yesterday's workout. Triceps are tight, even on that pesky left arm. Hadn't been sore in a while on chest and think it was due to just going b@llz-to-the-wall intense yesterday.
"Here I go again on my own. Going down the only road I've ever known."
Yeah, these poundages are quite puny, but my legs are some weak ones. Again, left knee went all blooey on me many years ago and I'm just now getting that leg, quad and calf stronger. I wanted to go on a heavy, mild pyramid. It all went down bloody well and just as I had hoped. Got in a damn good push on the quads and kept stupid strict form to make sure it was all on the quads. The hammies got in on the action and my lower back is still pumped!
- 7x10 (drop set)
My hamstrings were beaten up after that squat session, as I wanted to do another pyramid up to 40 pounds, but 30 put up a decent fight. I added the drop set to get in a good stretch and really fry these sonsofb1tches.
I wanted to do these after squats, but I could not flex below the waist! I wanted to go heavier, but once I pulled the bar from the floor, I knew I had it at the right amount. Same amounts as last week, but I didn't punish myself on squats last week like I did today. I might move this to my back routine, but I do like them mixed in with legs
These were rough. Barely made it through that final set. Need to get these jokers into gear. Get some mass and shape to them.
I wasn't sure if I had hit legs hard enough as I could still walk once I was done. I sat down to log my routine and it was rough getting up. Could feel the burn in both quads and I had to tip-toe at times till the blood came back.
Loving the PR-XT. I think strength is improving and once I was done with my exercise, noticed a trimmer belly. Probably keeping a tight core via the deadlifts and squats, but still, that just means that the pump/fullness is kicking in gear with greater rapidity.
Time to watch Conan the Barbarian. The one and only version worth watching. Gotta get a back like Arnold's. Maybe not that massive, but I want lats so big I can block out the sun. Need strong legs to hold it all up!
Since it is hump day and my thanks for reading:

Here's a little story that must be told. . .
DJ RicRoc's in deep concentration. Solid day lifting. Felt stronger as I continued my workouts. I seem to get stronger while I'm moving from set to set. Arms as of right now, while not totally pump, look fuller and are getting some definition to them. I was surprised that the left triceps was looking bigger, too. That one's tricky, as it's all tied to the shoulder and how that's been feeling.
That's why instead of preaching death in my songs, I breathe life
Today was good, as I've got some dates planned out for the weekend! Life's running smoothly!
Seated Military Press & Side Laterals & Rear Laterals (triset)
-10x70; 10x15; 10x15
-10x70; 10x15; 12x15
- 6x90; 10x15; 12x15
- 6x90; 10x15; 12x15
70 felt too light on the press, but my 5lb plates were being used by the dumbbells for the lateral exercises. I jacked it up to 90 and got in a seriously good pump and press altogether. I was surprised I was able to manage. I wanted to shoot for seven reps on those last two sets, but could not have done so without cheating heavily and potentially causing myself an injury. I'm surprised my rear laterals are doing well, so next week I'll really slow down on the negative.
Triceps Pressdown & Reverse-Grip Curls
-16x35; 12x46 (arm blaster on both exercises)
-10x45; 12x46 (AB)
-12x45; 12x46 (AB)
I used the Arm Blaster for the last three sets to use a more strict form. I kept the weight the same on the curls, even though part of me wanted to go heavier. I figured it was a good weight to run through, as I figured that more would have cost me some reps I wanted to get in. For the pressdown, left triceps is getting into a better groove and I was surprised how I could do more on the last set than on the third. Again, once I punish my body on a higher weight, it acclimates and is ready to attack!
Close-Grip Bench Press & Seated Dumbbell Curls
-12x70; 10x15 (AB)
-12x90; 10x15 (AB)
I should have started out heavier on the press, so that will be tweaked next week. I hadn't felt good in the left arm/shoulder/triceps to give these a-go like I was able to knock out today. I used the Arm Blaster again on the seated dumbbell curls to get the mind-muscle working and let the biceps engage, pulling the weight up.
Wrist Rollers - 6. Was able to do 3 straight before having to stop. Did 2 more and finished up with one. Getting stronger!
Reverse-Grip Wrist Curls - 1+min. Was able to get in more reps and last longer than the week prior. Got in a good range of motion and really punished my forearms.
Second week is nearing it's end. I'm loving it more and more as each day passes. Really looking forward to lifting and seeing how far I can take everything.
And, as my thanks for reading:

Day Thirteen of Thirty
Almost right at the midway point of my 30-day run. I'm loving it more and more. Best aspect: more positive disposition. Yeah, I'd chalk this up to confidence, which stems from an alpha-ness going on, which stems from testosterone. I'm getting a serious boost of this from PR-XT. Hit a spike in libido earlier in the week, which has mildy tapered off--more like a reserve when necessary. But Monday was yardcore.
No workouts today. Did pig out a bit more than usual. Took each set of pills with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Calves are still sore from Wednesday's workout. Going to switch up some of the routine next week. Nothing major, but add some tweaks. Been reading the classic Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding and reminding myself of some good stuff I had forgotten.
I almost don't want to rest, as I would like to get in another heavy duty routine, but, don't want to risk overtraining and know that patience in resting pays off great dividends.
Hope everyone has a good weekend.
03-11-2013, 02:06 AM
Quick update: noticing some nice muscle fullness. Pecs are popping out and the quads are nice and tight--can tell they're swoll as opposed to any other week since prior to taking PR-XT.
Enjoying the run on this. Have more of increased alpha-ness going on, great pumps when I workout, solid muscle fullness now heading into my third week and overall positive mood and disposition.
This morning noticed a more trim belly. Still have not yet incorporated serious cardio, but, am getting leaner around the waistline. Finally kicked in as I hoped it would.
Morning weight was a high 196. I've put on about three pounds in two weeks. Sweet!

I was reading through this here log, and I am thinking to myself, "what kind of sick ridiculous crazy pumped up stack thsi would be with Nolvadren XT".
Not so much to myself though.
03-12-2013, 01:56 AM
Starting the downhill run of the fantastic PR-XT. Today was back and before I started, I noticed good fullness in the pecs, which is something I was hoping to achieve. Reminded me of high school when I first started lifting, concentrating on getting my bench up. Could still tighten up here and there, but, draggin butt on getting the cardio in gear.
Felt good throughout the routine. Good energy and really went at it.
Trying to increase the number I do each back workout. These guys are rough, but, they get you stronger and there isn't any other exercise like them at all!
Started fading on the final set and barely got in a good, clean 6th rep to finish it out. I was surprised I got the weight up as much as I did, given the volume I had done up to that point. Felt good. Felt strong!
- 3x60 (drop set)
Will need to increase the weight next time around, however still was able to get in a good routing. Pulled the weight as fast as I could on those last two full sets. Will need to work on controlling the negative, but I wasn't sloppy; still maintained form.
Might have to do these after bent-over rows. Still, was pleased I could pull the 180 on the final two sets. Surprised the left shoulder's coming along as it is. I really want to get the poundages up on these. It'll happen.
Felt a good burn on the final set and the lats were flaring out all on their own. I like this lift, but might switch up another exercise in the coming weeks.
Back is coming along quite nicely. Lats are getting thicker and some sweep to their shape. Upper back is looking thick and the middle back is standing strong--finally getting that nice curve from top to bottom.
PR-XT is worth its weight and some serious stuff. I can imagine what a full, dedicated run, paired with Nolvadren-XT would produce. But, I'm extremely pleased with what it has provided me.
That being said: there are no shortcuts. You have to keep lifting and have to eat well and above all else, have to rest. Yeah, this stuff makes me feel strong, but, rest is key!
PR-XT powers all your hard work.
03-13-2013, 12:54 AM
Lats and back still felt flared from yesterday's workout. Spinal erectors getting stronger, holding the rest of my upper body up so I can puff out my chest!
Noticing a smooth ride of confidence, via the alpha male quality of having so much testosterone via PR-XT. It's like the initial weeks were akin to white water rafting and now, still waters are running deep.
Think of it as a reserve for when I need to muster up the energy to prove my worth. Before, I'd rely on liquid courage and that only sapped my test, which would create a vicious cycle of constant depletion and then reliance upon said liquid courage, only to prove way more harm than any good, which was negligible.
Flys (via resistance band)
Will have to move these towards the end of the chest routine moving forward. Main purpose for getting them done first was to a) protect the left shoulder till it got into gear and b) get the left pec up to par with the right. I think I'm there and realize that burning the chest with the band will only recruit more fibers for growth.
Press (via resistance band)
Same with the flys. Still, had a good burst and the pecs were coming around. By changing the sequence, I know I'll be able to target more overall and get some stimulation going.
Really pleased I could push the 125. Did it with speed, but made sure to keep that bar leveled, as at times, the dominant arm wants to take over. Left shoulder didn't bother me as much. Like how I'm progressing on these.
Incline Pushups: 15, 15, 9. I wanted to go at least to 12 on the final set, but I was taxed by that point. Still got in a sweet burn and really let the pecs do all the work.
Did these cause I like them so much and to get the serratus some work. Pleased with how I was able to get in a great stretch. Hadn't done them in a while because, yup, you guessed it...left shoulder. Felt a better use of the serratus and lats, as the triceps also got involved to a degree and the puny left one was up to the task.
Test if flowing and body's growing. Nothing major, but growing is growing. Slow and steady wins the race and I'm having fun.
Confidence is growing as well. I don't see it fading anytime soon, either!
03-14-2013, 01:30 AM
Noticed some DOMS today on the pecs. Felt nice. I could tell whenever I'd stretch out my arms today. Good muscle fullness going on with the chest and they're starting to look pectactular.
Didn't go as hard as I could today on legs, but got a more circuit-type workout. I was huffing and puffing and breaking out in a solid, constant sweat.
Gotta build some braces and then I'll be able to add more weight next week.
Exploded up on the last two sets. Felt good. No problems with the knee. This worked out well despite not getting in a stronger, overall load, as next week I'll be able to add more weight.
Felt good all the way around. Nice stretch in the upper quads. Will go heavier next week, as usual.
These were burners! Tried for 6 reps on the last two sets, but could only get 3 without serious cheating.
Again, will go heavier. Got in a good rhythm after a while on these. Really helps my lower back and stretches out the hammies quite nicely.
Really need to work on my calves. Will see what other exercises/stretches I can add.
Mood and sense of well-being are holding up quite nicely. I think of it as a freedom from being "normal." HAHA!
Good muscle fullness all around. PR-XT is no joke! I seriously think running this from start to finish with Nolvadren-XT would only accentuate your progress that much further. Have been noticing some tightening up of the belly, especially in the morning, since I'm fasted.
Good, good, good!

It's all coming together. Got some nice muscle fullness happening, really pleased with that. Confidence and alpha mentality are there. I'm taking charge. Working on getting large!
How are the studies treating you?

Hey Nineteen...good old Steely Dan!
Hitting my stride with PR-XT. Noticing more leaning with regards to the belly area. When I workout, it looks tighter. Granted, I'm keeping the core tight on the lifts, but even without the PR-XT, I did not have this effect. Changed up the routine this week and as it stands, it's offering more of a circuit-training quality to the sessions. Sweating much more, but, not huffing and puffing it, as in, not lacking oxygen and need to catch my breath.
The muscles and body are up for the task. Today, some poundages humbled me, while others were a good start to go heavier next week. I know the PR-XT's flooding the body with test as strength continues to shine. Good, quality muscle fullness. Even better than the first time I had ever run creatine, way back in 1997!
I'm done with my run yet, but I'd recommend this to anyone working on a bulk, lean bulk, or a cut, as I'm sure it'd preserve and sustain your muscle mass on a limited caloric intake.
(I started with some external/internal rotations for the shoulders using the resistance band. This was my warm-up.)
Seated Military Press
Got overzealous on the 100lb lift. But, was able to get four good presses nonetheless, without any pain or serious cheating. Squeeze out six more when I dropped the weight. Next week, I'll see if I can go 100lb at 6 reps for those last two sets. Left shoulder feels good!
Side Lateral and Bent-Over Rear Lateral (superset)
-3x12x15 (each exercise)
Side laterals are a bit tricky. Takes a sec to get the left shoulder the right control it needs to let the side delts do the work. At times, I think it leans forward too much and it's not hitting it just as it should.
I felt like a beast on these. My whole upper body looked "thicker" as I plowed through them. Really want these traps to pop out. Get people talking.
Barbell Curls (using the Arm Blaster)
Biceps were doing all the work. Got in a good stretch on these. Felt stronger after the fourth set, so I upped the poundage. Was surprise I had the strength and energy to do it.
These killed me, but I was able to get a focused squeeze on the pesky left biceps. Cheated a bit on the final rep, but, was slow and steady, really letting the weaker parts hit their goal. Like these. Will keep doing them heavy. I want nasty forearms!
Close-Grip Bench Press
Solid! Didn't think I was hitting them right, the triceps that is, but felt it as I started the fifth set. They were dying. Tried to get the bar up for the final 6th rep, but it just wasn't happening. Chest got a little bit involved, but overall, really pleased with how this series finished.
Pressdown (via resistance band)
Felt better at these than I have in the past couple of weeks. Perhaps since I did the heavier lift prior to this one. Either way, getting stronger. Muscles starting to activate.
I'm loving PR-XT. One more week to go, but, I've gotten all from it that I had aimed to achieve. Muscle fullness and the strength increases. Confidence boost and alpha-assertiveness, but without the ego. Essentially bringing out the best in me.
03-15-2013, 10:43 AM
Studies are on break for the time, thank God. Got to take a solid week off from work (spring break), but I'm slowly getting back to work so as not to be overwhelmed on Monday. Getting back into the gym in a few hours, and can't wait. Keep killin' it brothamang. Glad everything is falling into place!

It'd be nice, but as I was beginning my final two weeks on this, I was selected to sample another supp, which I knew would be coming in at around the time I finished PR-XT.
I know sometime in the summer, I'll run this again, but with Nolvadren-XT, and yeah, go for the full eight weeks. I didn't respond as well to Nolvadren-XT as I thought I would, I paired it with Prometheus Rising, but PR-XT worked wonders for me, so I'm thinking using both will really shine!

It's the final leg for the PR-XT tour of 2013! It's been a great ride and many thanks to Neddo and MAN Sports for giving me a free bottle to get my bearings under me. As I stated in my first post, I had been eager to sample this back when it came out and during the New Year's sale. So glad to have gotten a chance and PR-XT has done me tons of good!
Had a spike in libido today, probably because I'm thinking about lunch tomorrow with the cute girl from work. Hopefully it all goes down well and I can snag a date outside of work with this lovely lady! Got the confidence boost on my side, so, won't be an issue selling myself.
Fasted weight this morning = 198.
If that holds till tomorrow, which again, I know is always in flux, I will have put on about 5 pounds since I started taking PR-XT. Midsection looks good, not too pudgy, though still somewhat soggy but only from years of drinking and minimal cardio. Looking into Krav Maga with a friend of mine, so that should get a good sweat going on!
It's go time, folks!
03-18-2013, 12:59 PM
03-18-2013, 02:36 PM
Agreed! PR-XT has really amplified and brought out the best in all the hard work I've put in with dieting and hitting the weights hard. Haven't had a good response like this to a supplement since EAS's Phosphagen creatine.

I am going to run the PR-XT and Nolvadren XT sometime in the near future for a bulk. I foresee good results. I haven't decided whether my upcoming bulk is going to be PH or Natural. Never taken a PH.
Good log bro.
03-18-2013, 04:10 PM
I've never used a PH either. I have researched them, however. Some look promising and others seem to require some serious PCT, outside of what might readily be available OTC.
You should see how the PR-XT and NXT combo treat you first. Then you can go from there.
03-18-2013, 06:12 PM
Any PH should be coupled with a non OTC PCT - safe > sorry.
This log has me fuarkin' pumped for my PRxt run in a few months, holy hell
How'd the luncheon go brotato?

Just got done with it about an hour ago. Went down well. Better than I had hoped. All about setting that stage to get the young lady out of the office. Chances getting that much stronger.
Glad this log's providing some energy. I've had fun putting it together and running PR-XT.
