Hi everybody! ("Hi, Mr. Rick")
Thanks to Neddo and MAN Sports for offering a free bottle of , in what has to have been one of the funnest contest to enters. (Posting pictures of beautiful babes as an entry?--DOOD!)
I've been eager to try this out when it first arrived on the scene. I was going to buy it during NutraPlanet's New Year's sale, but I opted to save it for another time. I did, however, buy and today commences my 7th week on an 8-week run. I took another supp last year that contains two of the ingredients in PR-XT, and though I was not as dialed-in on my diet, I did have some noticeable, if moderate, leaning around my midsection. Now that I'm more disciplined with my eating, I'm looking forward to seeing how far I can go.
A Brief History of Time and Me
I've been lifting on and off for years. My best time training was during 2002--yikes!--and I was using EAS mainly as my supps. ('Member those guys! I did love their !) I had reached a good amount of weight and had been getting stronger. But, my diet was never in check, as I'd booze it up after work, as a waiter, and would get too frisy with the wacky-tabacky.
Later, I had hurt my right shoulder, which had been a reoccurring injury stemming from not using proper form during lifting while in high school. That led to a stupid long time off from lifting. In said time, I was drinking way too much and smoking even more. Horrible! I never got "out-of-shape", as I had mild definition from before, but, I was weak sauce status, and I had lingering remnants of a spare tire that stuck on my belly.
Last year I decided that I was fed up with that lifestyle, and how I looked, and realized how much I had missed punishing my body with solid lifting and exercise. (It was mainly to get into somewhat decent shape for my annual March Madness Vegas trip I'd take with my buds.)
Now that I've got a good year of getting back into rhythm, it is something I'm going to keep building on.
I'm a billing analyst for an entertainment company, so I'm essentially a desk jockey and the main exertion I get all day comes from my workouts and occasional walks around the block. In fact, the timing of winning the contest for the PR-XT was ideal.
Our work started a wellness committee to promote a healthier lifestyle. They were having "contest" for those who wanted to be wellness ambassadors for the company. I decided to enter to not only aid in my training, but impart that knowledge to others, which was the heart of the endeavor. Well, I got the "Dear John" email that I was not selected, and that coincided with the PM from Neddo stating that I had been selected for PR-XT!
So now, my mission is to just take my training into high gear and transform myself better than whomever they selected as an ambassador. I already had the drive to do it anyways, but, they just added fuel to the fire and I'm burning up!
I'm glad I've got the PR-XT to assist in this "Effe You" mission of mine!
Since PR-XT is touted as a lean mass accelerator, and since I've been on an a perpetual bulk for months now, I'm hoping to gain some mass and ideally, around the midsection. While I'll use the scale as a rudimentary gauge, the mirror shall inform me of my progress. Especially with getting the belly tighter. (That's what she said!) I'd like to get the muscles to "pop" out and keep it that way.
I also hope to gain some size on my legs. They are not as swoll as I'd like them and I'm hope to have them bursting through my slacks to impress all the ladies at work. Well, a few of them, at the very least. Okay, okay, just that one superfly hottie with the great arse!
Thursday: Shoulders and Arms
Fasted weight (as of this entry) = 193lbs. <--This was also after having answered nature's call twice.
This past week I felt myself getting stronger in all my lifts. Especially legs, as I jacked up my left knee many years ago and always had an aversion to squatting as a result. Not this week! That being said, by taking PR-XT and continuing to bust my tail lifting, I'm hoping to continue this trend, and if anything, accelerate the process.
Nolvadren-XT (will be done in two weeks)
BCAA's (one dose before I leave work and another intra-workout)
Whey Protein and WMS (morning shake [w/peanut butter] and PWO shake)
-Longjack (yeah, yeah, I know, but, I wanted to try this out and bought some in bulk last year)
(And, yes, I am lazy, I don't cap that, simply mix it all together and shoot it faster than a heroine junkie needing a fix!)
Log Format...(I said "log!")
I plan on taking PR-XT per the recommendations on the label. The goal is to give an update everyday, just before I go to sleep. On non-workout days, like today, I'll state when I took my pills, and should I notice anything of interest, I'll include that. On workout days, the same format will follow, including my lifts and exercises for that workout. Along the way I'll update with any noticeable changes in confidence, alpha-ness, libido, and whether or not that hottie from work will go out with me.
Well, it is now time to grub up and take my morning dose. I'll add some pics later on today.
And lastly: "It ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"
