    About me:

    I began using the products two days ago, so far I can say they both are delicious, and enjoyable. Stay tuned!

    Haha! I had to do it.

    Log Update!

    DAMN this protein is GOOD!

    Seriously though, I have been mixing it with water to stay low on the carbs and it's delicious. It somewhat reminds me of cinnamon toast crunch but with a chocolate hint to it.

    No clumps when shaken up properly and it doesn't bug my stomach one bit.
    I'm not exactly sure how to log this beyond this point, but I will note that I am going to be taking it over the next week or so on a cut, and it fits into my macros amazingly.

    Current Macros:

    50-120g of carbs
    180g of protein
    ~60g of fat


    As for the great preworkout! SUPP-D!

    It's pretty damn strong and goes pretty far.
    Today I got into the gym rather late so had to do a few supersets, I chugged down my one scoop and had a GREAT lift in, considering my time constraint.

    More updates to come!

    I had a CRAZY hectic week but I made sure to get a lift in every day.

    5/23/13-

    I had to rush once again to get a workout in.

    Deadlifts :

    225x10
    265x15
    315x15

    Superset-
    495x1 365x20, 225x10

    Then tossed in two sets of sumo deadlifts of 225 just practicing my form.

    Moved on to chest, super set with abdominals.
    185x 15 + crunches
    205x 12 + crunches
    225x 15 + crunches

    I also tossed in hanging leg raises and some shadowboxing, the Supp-D gave me great energy.


    5/24/13

    Legs

    Superset : Frontsquat/zercher squat/ leg press

    I really just focused on momentum and weight, making sure I was struggling with every last rep. Once again great energy, I seem to have had a great workout.

    5/25/13

    - Stuck to cardio, mostly shadowboxing and the stationary bike.

    5/26/13
    - Off day

    I like how you fatigued your muscles with quad extensions before getting into the core of your workout....great muscle building tactic.

    Thank you, I try to do that on days I dont plan on squatting. Knees were tender from a 5 mile hike on memorial day. Supp-D is AWESOME!

    Today was a sleep deprived day. I went to bed at 10PM and woke up at 12AM, DAMN YOU GENETICS!

    So after a few hours of work, I hit the gym for an early morning session. It's been ages since I have gone that early....quite the odd crowed of folks.

    30MIN Pre-Workout :
    Two scoops of Recover-D and 25g of carbs.

    5min Pre-Workout:

    Two scoops of Supp-D!

    and a little bit of this!



    Today was...well it was do what you feel like doing day!

    Cable Peck Flys:

    I just wanted to warm up my chest, get that blood rushing to the area before hitting it with the heavy stuff.

    60lbs x 20
    60lbs x 20
    110lbs x 15
    80lbs x 25

    Incline DB Press:
    Superset with burn outs

    90lbs x 25 - 35lbs x burn out
    90lbs x 25 - 35lbs x burn out
    90lbs x 15 - 35lbs x burn out

    High DB Flys:

    A tad bit hard to explain, but I perform them much like I would a guillotine flat press. Flaring the back of my hands out as to work the very top of my chest.

    35lbs x failure
    35lbs x failure
    35lbs x failure
    35lbs x failure

    Seated Dips:

    320lbs x 12
    300lbs x 15
    250lbs x 20
    185lbs x Failure

    Seated cable military press
    :

    Can't really go heavy on this machine since you have to curl the weight up before pressing...horrible design flaw!

    90lbs x 25
    110lbs x 15
    90lbs x 15
    70lbs x 20
    30lbs x failure


    I finished up with rear delts, abbs and a tad bit of cardio. Overall a good workout considering my brain is on autopilot.

    Nice routine! Do you superset your last set with the set to failure or do you rest and then do your last set till failure?

    Thanks! I superset and really try to focus on the stretch and the contractions.

    5am:

    Wasn't as tired today so stuck with one scoop. I'm surprised that I have yet to burn out from Supp-D yet. I tend to adjust to stimulants pretty quickly, that includes ephedrine, clenbuterol and what not.

    Hit the gym for a back day.

    90lbs x 25
    90lbs x 25

    90lbs x 15

    Kelso Shrugs:

    45lbs x failure
    45lbs x failure
    45lbs x failure
    45lbs x failure

    Stiff leg deads:

    315 x failure
    315 x failure

    Wasn't as tired today so stuck with one scoop. I'm surprised that I have yet to burn out from Supp-D yet. I tend to adjust to stimulants pretty quickly, that includes ephedrine, clenbuterol and what not.

    I've been on the current formula SUPP-D since we started testing it in November and it still gets me going every time!

    Update!


    I have been having great workouts as of late. I am focusing on losing as much fat and conditioning muscles at the moment, rather than working on mass gains.

    Thursday:


    I made this somewhat of a touch up day. I still am suffering from a strained brachialis muscle so it's a bit hard to do chest and back, but I manage. I begin my back workout with basic seated rows, keeping the weight light. I like to do these just to somewhat "wakeup" the muscle and the mind muscle connection.

    Seated rows:
    each hand*

    90lbs* x 25
    90lbs* x 25
    90lbs* x 25
    90lbs* x 25


    Bent over BB rows: Superset with shadowboxing simply to keep my heart rate up.

    45lbs x 20
    135lbs x 20
    225lbs x 15
    225lbs x 15

    Standing Lat pullovers: I like to get as much stretch as humanly possible and use a rope rather than a bar.

    120lbs x 15
    160lbs x 15
    160lbs x 8 / 110lbs x 20/ 90lbs x failure - reverse pyramid


    Deadlifts:


    225lbs x 20
    315lbs x 15
    315lbs x 20
    315lbs x 20

    I then moved over to some abs and cardio.



    Friday: OFF

    Saturday: Legs


    Front squat:

    135lbs x 20
    185lbs x 15
    205lbs x 8
    205lbs x 12

    Reverse Hacksquats:

    180lbs x failure
    180lbs x failure
    180lbs x failure

    Quad extensions: Once again, on these I like to hit every muscle of the quad, tilting my foot at the very end to hit different angles.
    *each leg*

    120lbs* x 12
    120lbs* x 12
    250lbs x 20
    210lbs x 20
    200lbs x failure/ 150lbs x failure/ 90lbs x failure - reverse pyramid


    SL Deadlifts:

    225lbs x 30
    225lbs x 30
    225lbs x 30
    45lbs x failure

    I then wrapped up with some speed squats and headed out a crippled fellow.

    edit: I recently finished my Recover-D and having switched over to my usual, I can tell that the Recover-D was digesting a lot easier.

    YES SIR! Will toss that up ASAP! I'll definitely be buying a tub when I can. Switching back to my original protein is a disappointment haha. I actually looked forward to a post workout Recover-D shake.


    Update!:

    MONDAY! International chest day, so I did back! haha


    I was actually feeling pretty bloated from a carb up the day before....well it wasn't a planned carb up, my nephew came over and I can't say no to the little guy. I'm currently trying to add more definition to my back:

    Name:  CameraZOOM-20121203232919569.jpg
Views: 56
Size:  70.0 KB

    Anyway I tossed in one scoop of Supp-D and hit the gym around 7PM. What I really appreciate about Supp-D is you guys didn't toss in a bunch of useless catabolic crap. There is a new preworkout out there that I enjoy (wont mention the name), but it functions best as a fat burner if you read the ingredients, and a mediocre catabolic one at that.

    It's really pleasant to drink still, I actually like to sip it during a long work day where I'm just feeling mentally fatigued. I am actually writing this at 4am sleepless while taking a small break from work.


    Warm Up:

    As usual I tossed in my seated rows, light weight with tight flexing. Really getting that mind muscle connection started, it helps that Supp-D used DMAE. I'm fairly sensitive to the increases of it, I off and on supplement it to stimulate my hippocampus.

    Seated Row:
    *Each hand*

    80lbs* x 20
    80lbs* x 20
    125lbs*x 20
    125lbs*x 15
    125lbs*x 15


    Deadlifts: Hamstrings were murdered so I went light

    135lbs x 25
    225lbs x 15
    295lbs x 10
    435lbs x 6
    295lbs x 25


    Squat Position Cable Rows : Rope

    110lbs* x 15
    110lbs* x 15
    160lbs* x 12
    180lbs* x 3 / 80lbs* x failure


    Lat Pull Overs : Rope

    110lbs x 15
    120lbs x 15
    160lbs x 8
    120lbs x 20 / 60lbs x failure

    At this point my lats were PUMPED


    Neutral Grip Lat Pulldowns:

    130lbs x 15
    160lbs x 12
    110lbs x 20 / 60lbs x 15


    I then moved on to do a few really light chess presses, and rear delts just to get some blood flow, I'll be hitting chest on Tuesday.

    Update:

    So I have been hitting the gym every day this week, no noticeable strength gains but I wouldn't expect that from a preworkout anyways.

    The flavor is kinda starting to get to me though.
