    Maxing out my test with Tropinol XP by iForce (SPONSORED)


    AntM's Tropinol XP Log, Powered by iForce



    First off, I want to say thank you to Vaughn for selecting me for this opportunity. I also would like to extend a thanks to the good bros of iForce for keeping the loggers in the loop with Tropinol XP being shipped. With that said, I am going to do an intro with this post, followed by photos, then a third post of my workout today; the first time I used XP.

    Background

    I have been lifting since I was 18. I would like to do a bodybuilding show in the near future, my first one was postponed. I was a former fatty in high school, 240 pounds when I entered. Hence, the stretch marks and some loose skin in my photos.

    The Claims




    • Enhanced Strength!
    • Improved Libido!
    • More Muscle Tone!
    • Increased Athletic Ability!
    • Lean Muscle Gains!


    My Expectations




    • An increase in weight of 1-1.5 pounds
    • Better sex drive
    • More aggression
    • More vascular, due to being drier
    • A slight strength increase (I do not train for strength specifically, so that is why I say slight)
    • Little to no increase in bodyfat


    What You Can Expect

    A no BS log and final review. I do not feel the need to sugar coat anything because I got a free supp. I want to help other consumers out there in choosing products that I think are good and not trash. I will also try and ive a very detailed log.

    Training Schedule




    • Sunday - Chest/Biceps/Forearms
    • Monday - Cardio/Calves
    • Tuesday - Back/Traps
    • Wednesday - Shoulders/Triceps/Abs
    • Thursday - OFF
    • Friday - Legs
    • Saturday - Cardio/Abs


    Cardio is HIIT style. I train with a decent amount of volume, but move quickly. I do not go above 2 minutes of rest between sets. I also foam roll after every session, the bodypart that I trained.

    Nutrition

    I carb cycle. I follow The Carb Cycling Codex from T-Nation, but have modified it to my liking. My meals are either protein/carbs/low fats or protein/fats/green veggies.


    • Sunday and Wednesday - High Carb
    • Tuesday and Friday - Moderate Carb
    • Monday, Thursday, Saturday - Low Carb


    I will post macros and what not on the day. I am adding calories, 50 a week in the form of carbs, on weeks I do not gain, or even lose weight. I want to put on clean mass and think this approach has been working. I get about 1.5 gallons of water in my body a day.

    Other Supps




    • Uni-Vite
    • NOW B-50
    • NOW C-1000
    • NOW Vitamin D 5,000
    • NP Fish Oil
    • NP Nr-Ala
    • ON Creatine
    • PROnom
    • Purple Wraath
    • White Flood Reborn, yes, Reborn


    That is it folks. If you think I left something out, feel free to ask me about it or tell me. In regards to my sig, I have gotten some PM's about it, if you'd like, you can post any questions here. I am open about it and do not hold anything back. Currently, I am at work. I will try and get my other two posts in by tonight, if not, they will be up by tomorrow evening.

    Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. The first two pictures were taken this morning right after breakfast, yesterday was a low carb day, so I was probably a little flat. The rest of the pics were taken post workout, I did not have enough time pre workout, I also had to get some meals ready for work. Areas I want to improve are my chest, hit the hardest after the transplant, my abs. I would like to add thickness everywhere but that will come back with time. I could not get a picture showing the separation in my legs, but there is some separation there.

    Just some HIIT cardio today with some calf work following. Nothing new to report, except maybe an increase in libido already? Who knows, I'll have to wait and see. On a side note, I did increase my cals this week for off days by 15 cals each day. Also, I might have pinkeye, my eye is almost swollen shut and red. I am about to head into work. If I get sent home, I'll have it checked out. I hate the doctor's office and try to avoid it. If it gets really bad I'll also get it looked at.

    Low Carb Day

    Cals - 2150
    Protein - 208.3
    Carbs - 177.9
    Fats - 73.3

    Back/Traps

    Rack Pulls 120 sec

    260x8
    265x8
    285x6
    275x8

    Dropped for the last set because I wanted a minimum of 8. I was feeling these out since I have not done them before. I liked them. They aren't too much higher than my deads probably because I have never done them and also because I had the pins set pretty low, at least compared to the videos I have seen.

    Pullups 90 sec

    Bodyweight x 8, 8, 7, 7, 6

    Goal was 35

    TBar Rows 90 sec

    105x12
    110x12
    115x10

    Just includes the plates, used 25s for a better ROM

    V Bar PullDown 90 sec

    107.5x8
    120 x 8, 8

    Meadows Row 60 sec

    30x12
    35x10, 10

    High Row

    110x12, 10, 10

    Don't know the legit name for this. It is a hammer strength machine that starts high like a pullup, but kinda looks like a row

    Haney Shrugs 60 sec

    95x10, 10, 8

    Front Shrugs 60 sec

    185x12, 10, 8

    For some reason, I cannot multi quote.

    Thanks Dan. My legs actually look my vascular in person. My family thinks it is nasty lol. If you ever see me just say hi, I would stop and talk to ya.

    Mike, I need to improve my posing. Thanks for the compliment. I threw the link in the thread too.

    Vaughn, I have noticed a slight improvement in my cardio endurance. As far as lifting, I feel like I can keep my intensity up during the entire workout and pumps have been great!

    Delts/Triceps/Abs

    Military Press 120 sec

    95x12
    95x9
    100x8

    Pretty strict form, bar goes all the way down to upper chest

    Seated DB Press 90 sec

    3x45x8

    Seated Behind the Neck Press 75 sec

    70x9
    70x10
    75x8

    Went too wide with my grip on the first set, too much stress on my shoulders. The other two sets felt perfect.

    Leaning DB Side Raises 60 sec

    2x17.5x10
    17.5x8

    First time I did these like this. I liked it this way because I felt as though there was constant tension on my side delt.

    Rear Pec Deck 60 sec

    100x12
    100x11
    100x9

    Machine Side Laterals 45 sec

    65x12
    65x11
    65x9

    Close Grip Bench on Smith 120 sec

    3x100x8

    Weight just includes the plates

    Weighted Dips 90 sec

    3x25x8

    Incline Skull Crushers 60 sec

    2x70x8
    70x7

    I was forced to use the 70 preset barbell. The 60 was taken. I wasn't disappointed with my numbers, but I like to hit higher reps on these.

    V Bar Presdowns 45 sec

    25x12
    25x11
    25x9

    Really use slow and strict form on these.

    Some ab work that I didn't record.

    High Carb Day

    Cals - 2,600
    Protein - 207.8
    Carbs - 310.3
    Fats - 65.7

    Pumps were very good today. My side delts were extremely pumped. Also, despite doing the same routine for traps yesterday, they are extremely sore today! I'm hoping this rack pulls add a lot of thickness to my upper back!

    Off day today, but I wanted to give a quick update. My appetite has increased, which is both a good and bad thing. Another thing I noticed is that my libido is up. I woke up once last night to use the bathroom and when my alarm went off. To put it in these terms, I seemed to be very excited when I got up both times.

    5/10/13


    Leg Day

    Back Squats (120 seconds rest between sets)

    4x195x8

    Felt pretty strong here. I think I will try for more reps with this weight next week instead of trying for 200 in a set. My last two sets I felt my form was damn near perfect.

    Front Squats (90 seconds)

    105x8
    2x115x8

    First time I have done these in a while so I decided to go lighter. I felt like my new shoes helped me out of the hole. I also did not have a problem keeping my elbows up which is usually my weak spot on these. My quads were so pumped after these.

    Leg Extension (60 seconds)

    145x10
    3x145x8

    These felt very heavy. It is 5 pounds heavier than last week though. I think my front squats took a lot out of my quads. However, this is not an exercise that needs a lot of weight.

    Leg Press (90 sec)

    3x380x10

    I wanted to do these after front squats, but the machine was taken. I was surprised I was able to do pretty much what I did last week considering I did these second last week and fourth this week.

    Roman Deadlift (90 Seconds)

    3x185x10
    185x9

    Form was very good on these. I was stopping short of locking out to keep tension on my hamstrings.

    Lying Leg Curl (60 seconds)

    65x12, 10, 8

    Seated Leg Curl (60 seconds)

    2x70x9
    70x8

    Seated Calf (60 seconds)

    135x10
    135x9
    3x135x8

    I did 25 pounds less than last week. With that 25 off, I was able to go all the way down with zero bounce. I was also able to get a better contraction. Normally, I just feel the contraction in my out calf, but this way, I felt it in the inside as well. The pump was very painful and my legs were shaking still about an hour after my session unless I was leaning on something.

    I usually go in the mornings. I refuse to go in the evenings and will avoid it at all costs for that reason. About a month ago, I had to go to Woodbridge for a week for training for work. I had to be there from 8:30 to 5. I just got up early every morning and went to the gym in Hamden and showered there. I don't care that I'm around people, but I try to get in and out.

    What do you find awkward about the seated calf machine? I hated it at first, but now love it.

    Used the smith this week because I am no longer training with my partner. I actually liked it a lot. I felt like I could focus more on my chest and my use my chest to push the weight versus my whole body.

    I'm going to increase calories on my moderate carb days by 25 cals each day. This will be in the form of carbs. My appetite has been through the roof especially when I wake up in the morning. I eat before bed. Usually in the morning I will make my bed and empty the dishwasher, but lately, I have been making breakfast first thing. For some reason, I woke up with sore biceps yesterday. I almost didn't train them today. I was happy with what I did with them being s
    ore.

    Training session today was unbelievable I felt a lot stronger, and that is proven compared to the numbers from last week. I almost felt like I could do anything this week. I had my usual post workout meal, but had to have another meal soon after because I was so hungry!

    Delts/Triceps/Abs

    Military Press 120 sec

    100x9, 8, 8

    Pretty strict form, bar goes all the way down to upper chest. Heavier than last week for all of the sets. I was surprised.

    Seated DB Press 90 sec

    45x8, 8, 6 rest pause 3 reps

    Don't know what happened on that last set. Only got 6, did a rest pause and got 3 more.

    Smith Seated Behind the Neck Press 75 sec

    2x50x8
    55x8

    Just includes the weights.

    Leaning DB Side Raises 60 sec

    2x17.5x12
    17.5x10

    Had a serious pump while doing these!

    Rear Pec Deck 60 sec

    2x100x12
    100x9

    Machine Side Laterals 45 sec

    2x65x12
    65x9

    Weighted Dips 90 sec

    25x10
    2x25x8

    Close Grip Bench on Smith 90 sec

    90x9
    2x90x8

    Weight just includes the plates. Went lighter on these because I did them second AND rested 30 seconds shorter.

    Incline Skull Crushers 60 sec

    60x10
    2x60x8

    Rope Presdowns 45 sec

    20x10
    2x20x8

    Really use slow and strict form on these.

    Some ab work that I didn't record.

    High Carb Day

    Cals - 2,600
    Protein - 208
    Carbs - 307.5
    Fats - 67.3

    Macros - 32/45/23 P/C/F

    I'm not worried about that last set of seated DB presses, everything else was stronger than last week. Pumps were insane today and I feel great, mentally and physically.

    Here is a video of John Meadows, the creator, doing them. You don't really need a lot of weight for these. I try and keep my back completely flat. It may be awkward at first, but it hits the upper back very nicely.

    5/24/13




    Leg Day

    Back Squats (120 seconds rest between sets)

    195x8
    3x200x8

    Went heavier here this week. It felt like a lot more weight than it actually was, but I was able to hit my goal. I think my positioning was off today and that was the reason. The first three, my feet were too close and the last set, too far.

    Front Squats (90 seconds)

    115x8
    2x125x8

    Leg Press (90 sec)

    380x8
    2x410x8

    Leg Extension (60 seconds)

    2x115x10
    115x9
    3x115x8

    As you can see this is 30 pounds lighter than last week. However, I had to use a different machine. I'm going to continue using this one. It forces you to stay upright which makes the exercise harder. I felt it more in my quad than I did the other machine.

    Roman Deadlift (90 Seconds)

    185x10
    3x195x8

    Lying Leg Curl (60 seconds)

    65x12, 11, 9

    Seated Leg Curl (60 seconds)

    70x12
    2x70x10

    Seated Calf (60 seconds)

    2x135x10
    135x9
    3x135x8

    Pumps in my arms and forearms were insane today. I was happy with the smaller progress I made in chest, especially because I have been sore around my incision site lately. I don't know exactly why, I think it has to do with a huge knot in my back that I cannot seem to get out. Everything went up either number or weight wise. I do not think I will be touching my calories this week.

    2x285x8
    2x295x8

    Pullups
    90 sec


    Bodyweight x 10,7,7,6,6

    Goal was 35


    TBar Rows
    90 sec


    2x115x10

    2x115x8

    Just includes the plates, used 25s for a better ROM

    V Bar PullDown
    90 sec


    120x9
    3x120 x 8, 8


    Meadows Row

    As you can see, numbers were about the same or slightly higher. I gave the rack pulls everything I had today. Those have gone up a lot since the start of the log. My back is still bothering me, I think it is a knot and not a pulled muscle. I am going to get a deep tissue massage later today (my first one ever) and have a doctors appointment for my transplant tomorrow. I will see what they say. Also, I am going to be adding some coconut oil into my diet. If anyone reads this, what can I do with it besides cook?

    Damn, I guess I fail at logging!

    I will post today's workout tomorrow morning. Also, I think tomorrow is my last day on Tropinol XP the bottle is pretty empty. On a side note, I talked to my old gym partner briefly today. He goes to school for exercise physiology, in the master's program and he knows his ****. He told me to look up Upper Cross Syndrome and this sounds exactly like what has been bothering me for the past two weeks.

    Thanks, I will post a link to the thread in the company section. I got a few final pictures this morning. I'm just getting on here quickly today. If I didn't have to work everyday til Saturday, I'd do the review today, but I don't want to rush and throw it together. Also, I went heavy on back today, 4-6 reps for everything, and it blew my mind how strong I actually got. I could not believe the numbers I put up.

    Tropinol XP Final Review

    So for having this up late guys. And also, thank you to all that followed and posted. I am going to use a scale of 10. Basically, a 5 means no change/did not notice anything, higher than that means a positive change, lower, a negative one. I will also post pictures below.

    Starting Weight - 141.4
    Ending Weight - 142.4


    Strength

    I do not train for strength, nor do I really care how strong I am. If I could only bench the bar, but look like a Greek God, I would be happy with that. My squat went up 5 pounds during the log, in the same rep range, my military press and bench went up slightly, and my rack pulls went up around 60 pounds, but this was using a slightly lower rep range. My isolation lifts also increased. Overall, I was happy with the increase I saw. It could have been better, but I am still happy. 8/10

    Pumps

    Serious pumps every workout, sometimes, they were painful. 10/10

    Libido

    A slight increase here. Nothing too serious, but there were some days it was pretty intense. 7/10

    Body Composition

    This was the biggest factor for me. Personally, I think my chest, arms, shoulders and legs got bigger during the log. I gained a pound which was my goal. Also, my pants seem to fit me the same, maybe even a little looser. My vascularity increased as well. Depending on the lighting, my abs are starting to show as well. With the increase in weight and size, it appears that I lost a little fat as well. I do not have any leg shots, but you can easily see separation between my glute, hamstring, and quad. I have some feathering in my rear tricep too when I do a side tri pose. I also decreased my cardio and increased my cals from the beginning to the end and still had this slight fat loss. 10/10

    Final Word

    Tropinol XP delivers as promised. I did not have crazy strength gains, but I do not train that way. I could imagine there being very nice strength gins if one trains that way. Libido could have been better, but it was increased some. Pumps were insane every workout! Most importantly, body composition improved greatly. I'll take a slight decrease in fat while cutting cardio, upping cals, and gaining a pound any time. This was my first run with an iForce product and I will be doing business with them. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to add lean mass or even retain mass while cutting. 9/10

    Picture time. I will put captions under each picture. I wanted to get the same lighting and angles, but it was impossible with the way the lighting was coming into the bathroom.
