McCrew530gets pumped with Prodigy a sponsored log by Premium Nutr

All right Im back on the attack. I kept up my work outs while I was at my managers retreat over the past week. The gym at the hotel where the conference was held had a decent gym with a small selection of free weights and a couple of machines. I put together a couple of cross fit full body workouts with a solid Prodigy boost and noticed that the pump I got was more vascular in nature v.s. muscle filling size when doing high rep high intensity full body exercise. Now I am not a crazy endurance kind of guy but I felt an extra kick with my cross fit work outs. So all you high school athletes out there that are thinking about Using gear to give you an edge make this note, it is not needed, if you absolutely need something to give you an extra gear in the gym look into Prodigy, its cost effective and it works well. Ok enough with the PSA segment back into the work outs. After I got back from my trip I hit a new PR in incline bench press 275x5 during an hour and a half chest and triceps bash and this morning I hit back and biceps with a high note of 15 wide grip pull ups superset with 10 close grips.
Over all synopsis of week 1
Sustained vascularity: 8
Energy : 10
Taste and mix ability :10
Overall impression of the first week is that Prodigy is that this product is great. I am not retaining any watter which has been a problem with other Pre work outs that I have used in the past. The energy that I get in my morning workouts is fantastic and clean, The pump is nice and full and stays with you for a while. The B.A tingle is great and can be felt through out your entire body when pushing out those last few reps. I am interested in seeing if my body builds up a tolerance to any of these elements over the next few weeks. Hit me up with any questions you may have.

All right shoulders and arms day!
I was kind of exhausted from last night. I got called out to my store due to the alarm going off at 10PM only to find a Mexican sleeping in one of our outside bathrooms, so I didn’t get to sleep as early as I wanted but I was in the gym at 8 none the less.

Thoughts on todays work out: I’m noticing that my vascularity is becoming more pronounced each day epically in my forearms and traps. Also I don’t know if my gym is just cranking up the heat, or my workouts are more intense but I am sweating a bit more. Cary is there anything in Prodigy that would give thermo genic effect? Either way I like it!
Do any of you guys fallowing along have any input so far, questions or anything you would like to see more of? This is my first log and I want to make sure that I am hitting all the bases.

I noticed a little more sweating when I took Prodigy too. May just be the more intense workouts

Hows it going bro? Haven't seen you post in a couple days....

Work outs have been great my internet has been down at my apartments so I haven’t had the ability to get on line and update but I’m back in the office today and just got all my work done.

Leg day included
box jumps 15X3 warm up
Lunges with 50lb dumbbells 10 steps each leg for 3 sets
Leg press 450X20 540X15 630X10
Dead Lifts 215X10X3
then to finish off I saw this lady doing these 1 leg glut press on the smith machine which I tried and they were surprisingly hard with only 30lbs
So far I am really impressed with Prodigy. usually by week 2 of consistent pre work dosage I fell my tolerance building and the effects diminishing but so far the pumps have remained solid I’m actually noticing more striations and better sustained vascularity. Tomorrow is core day I will upload a pic of my legs after work I have some good separation going on.

Kick ass workout and indeed nice separation going on there! I really need to stop being a lazy bum and order myself a tub of prodigy!
05-12-2013 07:58 PM
Thank you. It has been a really nice addition so far Im loving it!

How many scoops are you taking pre-workout? When you workout in the evening does it keep you awake?
05-13-2013 01:47 PM
Ok its official, Prodigy is doing work on my size because I had some guy in my gym come up to me and ask me what I was taking. I laughed knowing where his line of questioning was going and told him about Prodigy, he gave me that "ya, right" look and kept watching me work out.
I cant blame the guy though today was back day and I was looking swolle!

Final Push Get My Gun by D-12
Thoughts of the day: So I think I need to put another category into this review and that is drive. The focus I had this morning was incredible I really was trying to feel each muscle contract but at the end when I was doing my bicep burn outs there was this awesome DRIVE that rushed through me. It felt like I had an internal cheer leader telling me to get one more. Also As far as body composition goes after two weeks of consistently taking Prodigy I am feeling a hardening effect in my muscles and a solid increase in vascularity. I know a portion of this has to do with the high quality work outs I have been getting mixed with a mostly clean diet. But I advise anyone looking to put together a summer recomp stack look at Prodigy as your pre-workout. I have been sweating my a$$ off in the gym lately, If you were to stack this with a thermo-genic it would be amazing. As always feel free to hit me up with any questions.

I am using one scoop and getting great results, I dont think more than that is needed. A majority of my work outs are in the morning and I take Prodigy on an empty stomach but I do not get the overly stimulated jitters. I did have a bit of an issue the one time I got an afternoon/evening work out, I think it was around five. I was passed out by midnight though plus I have poor pre-sleeping habits, tv watching, gaming, and what not. So I would say Prodigy is a safe bet to take for an evening work out supplement. But like anything listen to your body and react accordingly. Good sleep is just as important as a good work out!

I really don't get much of a stim effect from Prodigy. I have been dosing 1/2 scoop Game Day and one scoop Prodigy with pretty good results. Good focus + good stim effect. No stomach upset.
05-14-2013 12:23 PM
I have been seeing great results. In the morning I get a nice rush of "lets do this!" Rather than a cracked out feeling it more a sense of well being! And Zero stomach up set with me as well. I have used products in the past where I feel like I’m either going to puke or have explosive diarrhea lol!

Final Push Make it Bun Dem by Skrillix and Damian Marley
So I don’t know why but I was on a Electric Reggae kick today and the music sounded Amazing!!!!! Im starting to see some great muscle separation in my back and when the pump kicks in full force I have that solid cephalic vein aka the bicep vein bursting through. Nothing new to report Im still getting the same great pumps, awesome energy, great focus, beta alanine tingles ever time I push those last deep sets and no water retention. If anything I feel like my muscles are getting harder and Im leaning out a bit.

The light doesnt do the definition justice but you can see a good solid sweep in the shoulder. My stupid gym has lighting equal to a cave
05-14-2013 01:14 PM
Damn right bro!
