Trained Back today, actually gonna cut my volume down for the next week or so and see how my strength gains/size gains react. Have hit a bunch of pr's recently and i'm gonna deload by cutting my volume in half or more with same weight.
EZ Yates' Row: 205 x 6,5 + Deadlift/Shrug combo
T-Bar Row: 75 x 10,12,12
Chin Ups: 6,6,6,6,6 Lost 2 reps, probably from going heavier on Yates' row.
Hammer Low Row: Epic as hell moved up to 145lbs per side for 2 sets of 6 reps, almost a 30lb PR
W-Bar Pull Down: 100 x 12,12,10
Weight is up to 229.2Lbs, cut some carbs out today and will for the next few days. Just want to see if i can lean out a little better while gaining some quality size before this is over. So far mission accomplished!

Delts/Tri's 3/29/13, Starting low volume super-compensation phase. Weight - 228.6Lbs
High Incline Laterals: 25 x 20,20 PR's
Low Incline Laterals: 25 x 20,20 PR's

Tricep Dips: -4 x 8, 6 BW x 6 PR's
Rvs Grip Lying Extensions: 60 x 20, 80 x 15 PR's
Goals achieved for this session, i plan to build up my over all volume over the course of 4-6 weeks. Once i get up to 20 set overall volume for a body part and stop seeing strength gains i will drop back down to 2 sets per exercise or around 6-10 sets. Say i start the low volume approach with 50lbs on an exercise, i want to stay at low volume until i stop gaining reps which then i will add 1-2 more sets with the same weight, adding overall volume which should help stimulate even more hypertrophy. The goal will be to use a heavier weight at the beginning of each cycle. At points i will utilize partials and other techniques as well to see if i can bust through any plateaus.

My new Diet layout:
Meal 1: 6 eggs 3 whole/3 whites and 1/2 cup oatmeal
At work Snack: Fiber bar with aminos
Meal 2: 2 - 95/5 turkey burger with 1 can of pea's
Meal 3/Post workout shake: 70 grams whey isolate/40-50 simple carbs
Meal 4: 2 - 95/5 Turkey burger with 4 slices whole grain high fiber bread
Meal 5: 6 eggs 3 whole/3 whites with 1 slice of swiss cheese or peas
Around 280g Protein, almost all carbs from Veggies and high fiber bread. Right around 100 grams of fat and 200 grams carbs. About 3k calories.
Started this setup 2 days ago and i already see improvements, i can actually see my brachiallis again. Holding fat on my love handle area/chest/back of arm by triceps. Once that's removed then i'll be able to evaluate where i am. Have made great improvements since the start of this log and i plan to continue so.
Trained chest/bi's today at a bodyweight of 226.2Lbs
Inc. DB Press: 80 x 10,6 PR's
Slight Dec. Smith Press: 205 x 14,6 + Drop PR's

Spider Curl Superset Guillotine curl: 30 x 14 + 35 x 12, 30 x 10 + 40 x 8
Epic workout today, i think with my established frequency of every 4 days, 2 intense sets and about 3 exercises are all i need for chest.
Left with an insane pump.

Hey guys quick update, i finished Alpha Mass completely and now i just have a few days left of 5alpha test. Since stopping Alphamass i have dried out a little bit and my weight is steady around 225Lbs. I have made considerable progress and i definitely am satisfied with how it's gone. Will post after pic's and final review in a few days.

Today marks the last day of this log, i have accomplished my goal of leaning out and building some muscle in the process. I am definitely stronger and my joints feel really good. Final review and pic's will be up tomorrow!

OKAY WOW, sorry for the long wait on this review. I've had some life complications and issues with my camera but here is my review!
Alpha Mass/5-Alpha Test:
I noticed a great increase in aggression as well as libido, there were times my libido was just annoying to say the least. Lost a great amount of fat while on this stack. I saw some good strength gains about 1 week into the cycle, although i didn't gain as much as i anticipated i am greatly satisfied with my results. The most significant thing i noticed was that i really dried out and noticed a lot more lines/cuts. I didn't experience any shutdown on this stack.
Joint Fixx: THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE JOINT SUPPORT, i have used glucosamine and other products but this stuff was just soo much better than what i normally use. I'm finishing up my current glucosamine/msm bottle i had left and it pretty much sucks even at 2x dose. EXTREMELY great product you guys have here!
