    Stronger and more efficient than the "Advanced" version, and better bang for the buck than the Original version .

    Hope you enjoy the log! Bolt is a top notch logger and has a magnificent physique and strength numbers to showcase even more how Xgels shines over the competition!

  8. Thanks for all the subs....I'll toss up a daily reflection later but looks like I won't have time for GPP/Prehab today as I have a pretty full plate of work tonight. Still might try though!

  9. Day 2- April 30:


    I slept horribly last night for some reason. I woke up like 5 times had some really weird nightmare (that wasn't scary but I woke up like it was lol) and just tossed and turned all night. Happens every so often and probably completely random. I also woke up with some insane DOMS in the chest, and moderate shoulder and triceps DOMS.

    Got up and ran around doing work all morning long. Came home and then went back to work. Blah blah blah.


    Training:

    GPP/Prehab/Off

    I was sore and tired so I didn't feel the need to force myself into doing something. Still did a whole series of mobilization work and foam rolling followed by some bodyweight ITYWs and some push ups just to get some blood into the sore muscles. Took a contrast shower and feel really good now. I probably should have just done all that and woken up earlier to do it than at night because I feel great now...and didn't all day long.


    Diet:

    About to hit 2500 with this next meal. I don't usually miss my macro goals. One note is that I have been Gluten free for awhile. I tried it and while it doesn't really seem to be different I just hardly buy foods with Gluten anymore. Still occasional cereal or bagel or tortilla or w/e in a meal eating out but have found a love for all things non-gluten.


    Supplement Notes:

    -No X-gels today as I don't take them unless I am training.
    -DFG + Clout didn't give me the crazy tunnel vision of yesterday but I do get a nice morning pick up even without the caffeine. Paired with caffeine I bet it would be real nice.
    -All my other staples were taken as usually listed.

  10. Lol reading your OP I saw the part about Dewey and I think he might have disowned me....

    I was gonna start a log for the product he got me for the "testify and win" promo in early April but had that RC sprain and then didn't hit the gym for a week....

    Should be starting it this week though lol.

  11. The nights of tossing and turning really are horrible. My body temperature was insanely high last night so I woke up in the middle of the night and turned the fan on and opened the windows.

    I never have tried the gluten free thing but then again never have really thought about it either.

    Ya I wouldn't worry about the Gluten stuff unless you think you have an issue. I just did a month without it to see how it was from more of a psychological perspective and having to avoid it and look for alternatives, etc. I never really ate a ton of it before anyways though.

  15. Day 3- May 1:


    Sleep was amazing last night and I woke up very refreshed. Glad it didn't go for a couple of days. Today was a lot of work and reading so far but not as busy as yesterday and should have some time tonight to actually chill (and hit the comic book store...it is Wednesday!).

    I took a sample of Athletix new pre-workout non-stim product and didn't want to confound too many things so just took that sample with 2g ArA. No GMS or Carnitine because I wanted to see exactly how the sample effected me (since they were nice enough to send it) and in the grand scheme of things shouldn't be too much of an issue with my X-gels.


    Training:

    Mt Dog Back:

    1)DB Rows: 8 reps x 3 sets @ 100lbs. Went heavier than usual on these after several warm up sets, just trying to move some good weight but still got a real solid contraction and stretch on each rep.
    2)Meadows Rows: 10 reps x 3 sets @ 75lbs. Don't do these too often but kept them light with short rest really focusing on the contraction. Took a set or two at lighter weight to get the feel then proceeded with these three sets.
    3)Deadlifts: 10 reps x 1 set @ 275lbs. This called to work up to a weight that would feel like a decently heavy triple and do ten reps, taking a step back and resetting after each rep (kind of like rest pause or how I did my Cube Method DE deads). I didn't really get very heavy on these as I didn't want to push it on this currently but it felt cool with how pumped my back was at the time.
    4)Stretchers: 12 reps x 3 sets @75lbs. Tried 90 but I couldn't get the right leverage for my lightweight self so went with 75lbs. Crazy pump and great stretch at the top of each rep. I really like this exercise just not the particular lat pulldown I used this day.

    Overall not very high volume but I got a very solid pump and hit my back very well. Felt really good and my shoulders felt awesome afterwards (they felt a little off after all the pressing on Monday for some reason, nothing major).


    Diet:

    Should hit 3000 no problem. Going to a BBQ so some burgers sound like a good idea tonight.


    Supplement Notes:

    -2g on the X-gels today. Still not much to note as only the second day of dosing, but vascularity and pump were great (probably mostly the Athletix sample which I will be reviewing soon).
    -DFG + Clout then some studying before morning work was a solid combo. No stims today but energy was really good and mind was clear.
    -All my other staples were taken as usually listed again.

    I am getting pretty excited for the workout change up coming after next week and hoping the ArA starts to kick in a little next week as that plus the small addition to volume should be nice. Grabbed some CCCD Quest Bars yesterday and they are already almost gone.

  16. Nice session bolt. I know what you mean with the stretchers. If you don't use the right pulldown machine, they just don't work out right. I can't get a full stretch before the weight stack bottoms out on some of them.

    I'm trying to limit myself to 2 CCCD bars a day. The only reason I can pull it off is because I have the PB cups as well lol.

    Lol yea man! I changed a few things around for a military program I'm putting a packet in for. I'll essentially have my MS in half the time if I get accepted so I'm pulling out all the stops. Is that ok with you AZ?
