    Wanted to get this going. Started Monday 5/20.

    Just on my second week after my first physique comp so this is my first week back to slaying weights and I'm focused on growth. Abs are fun and everything and I have no plan on letting them disappear for summer but a little fat/water is cool.

    I dieted for 20 weeks leading up to this show so needless to say I rebounded badly. Ate way too much, too much sodium ect etc. lesson learned. Still dropping water, gained a small amount of fat but hey what's done is done. I'm focused for than ever now. My diet is under slight supervision of my coach for this offseason and looks like this

    P-350g
    C-250-300g
    F-75g
    Give or take

    He's allowing me two free meals a week but free meals for me these days are a steak or burger out at a nice place.

    Current supps
    Pre WO:

    SNS Xgels
    Endurance/micro/focus xt
    ALCAR

    Others:
    TRT 100mg/week plus hcg 5000ius/week (fertility)
    Adex
    Potassium
    Magnesium
    Fish oil 6g
    Calcium Citrate
    Creatine 5g
    D3
    Gut health
    Taking a break for a bit with Gdas but they will include at some point AP/P Slin/slintensity
    BCAAs intra

    I train at 430am M-F weekend off

    Starting a new program that I've never done. Sort of a GVT/fst7/hit theme. And I'm digging it thus far. It's high intensity high volume which I love.

    Let me just say the pumps with Xgels were so noticeable even after first dose. Today was leg day and the quad pumps after 10x10 squats plus four sets 15 on leg press were absolutely painful!

    Should be a fun ride.

    Oh yeah since SNS sponsored a bottle I decided to pick up another bottle so I can run this 50 days!

    Never ran ArA before, so I am interested in how this treats you. Plan on running it myself here very soon.

    That's a very accurate description of XGels/ArA!

    Crazy leg doms today!

    Today went like this

    Wu 8 mins stairs

    SHOULDERS
    Standing BB Press 10x10
    DB lat raises 5x15
    Rev Peck Deck 5x15

    5 min HIIT

    BICEPS
    Machine Preacher Curls 10x10
    Cross body hammer curls 5x15
    Incline DB Press 4x15
    (Bi pump was painfull)

    5 min HIIT

    TRICEPS
    Skull Crushers 10x10
    Rope push downs 5x15
    OH EXT 5x15

    5 min HIIT

    ABS
    Decline sit ups failure
    Leg Raises failure

    Smoked!! All rest periods were 30-40 secs at most 1m (usually just last couple sets of 10x10). I'm trying something new recommended by a friend which is to do 5-7 mins HIIT in between body parts. I want to see how this compares to just doing HIIT after weights.

    I see that HIIT between groups. That's a different idea. Curious to see how that works out. I may have to try that sometime.

    Alright guys need some help. This is my first go with aRa products. Anyone report massive all day headaches from these products. They coincidentally started mon when I started this log. I just realized its been 4 days and the same thing. Headache about 2 hours after gym session that lasts on and off all day till around 8 pm. Nothing has changed except me adding this in. No BP issues, hunger, caffein withdrawal I even took my contacts out as they sometimes cause headaches for me. Any help would be great.

    I'm hoping when I take it for the first time I don't experience headaches. Would be a major bummer. Hopefully someone else comes in here and comments on this issue.

    I just read one article showing numerous studies linking headaches with ArA :-(. Also read on another forum that it tends to diminish after a couple weeks. 2 weeks of headaches doesn't seem worth it to me.

    I will say that my brother did experience the headaches but I don't think it was during the whole run. He only complained about it a few times, but I can't really remember how long it effected him.

    In for this and hoping you're able to keep it going. I'm logging these elsewhere and am loving them. No headaches at all for me and I can be prone to getting them. DOMS? Oh yeah - plenty! Great pumps and all day hardness too which is awesome. About 35 days or so left on my run and I'm looking forward to every one of those days ;D Hope the headaches clear for you soon
