  1. Great update!

  2. Energy and endurance continues to be excellent in the gym. Yesterday was a back day...hit that in the morning and finished with 45 minutes on the bike. I was back at bootcamp this morning and was again, flying through the workout with a lot more energy and endurance than I expected. I have to give the initial credit for this boost to the Titanium! Fridays at bootcamp or normally tough, dragging a little from the long week. But I'm feeling energized and strong....enough to have gone another hour. My plan is to sneak into the gym tonight for an arm workout and some more cardio or at the very least, another 45 minutes of cardio.

  4. Everything is still going strong. Even with the Father's Day weekend, I kept my diet in check and my biggest splurge was a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. Other than that, beginning Saturday I bumped my carbs back up to around 150 grams a day and beginning tomorrow, I'll be up at 200 grams a day for the week. Again, the goal is to hit my carb load days next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and not have that sudden increase of 300 carbohydrate grams. I'll go from about 220 on Friday to about 400 on Monday. At the gym this morning and did a tri-set - superset type of workout. It was a complete spur of the moment thing but with the constant work flow, I was pumped beyond belief after only about 5 minutes. Here is what it looked like:Name:  june16.jpg

Size:  24.6 KB I didn't need much weight in order to really feel this. The pump and the work pace felt really good and I'm thinking about throwing this type of weight training in all this week and next, along with my bootcamp classes. I took some pics this morning and they are a slight improvement from last week's. At this stage of the game, every tiny little improvement is a milestone and I'm looking to keep tightening up over the next 2 weeks.

  5. Awesome log man. You getting the crazy vivid dreams like me?

    Yep. Although not always of the erotic variety, I would say a vivid dream that I remember upon waking happens every other night. Since these dreams started, it's made me realize how long it's been since I had a dream that I can remember. My sleep efficiency is also up. The bodymedia arm band I wear tracks your sleep and will give you an efficiency percentage every night. It will compare the time you spent sleeping versus the total time you spent lying down . Before I started the Titanium, I would average about 75-78% efficiency. In the last 2 weeks, my efficiency has gone to about 85-88% every night.

    My endurance in bootcamp continues to amaze me. Every sprint, every 300m run, as well as just the general kettlebell and suspension training is done with more intensity and endurance than a month ago. It's more than just getting in better shape because I've always been in great shape. There is a definite feeling that goes along with this that allows me to push harder on the sprints and the runs.

    Awesome results from Titanium. Enjoying this vey much!

  8. The feedback with this new formula is amazing, started it up during my PCT and I'm noticing libido effects quick!

  12. I am falling in love with this stuff, when I read from a couple of the loggers saying they feel it's given them a better libido boost than DAA, even as a rep I thought it can't be, I enjoyed Formula-X for Libido way more than Titanium XL, but sure enough this new formula seems to be far better, better than Formula-X for me.

    The last few days have been busy. Working from sunup until sundown but still managing to squeeze in 2 workouts a day and keep the diet spot on. Beginning on Monday, I've dropped my calories down a bit, to 2300 a day, in order to keep leaning down for the upcoming contest. Carbs have gone down to about 180 grams, and protein is right around 230 grams. I'm wanting to attack it hard so I can be at the bf I need to be with a week to a week and a half left. With that said, cardio has been bumped up to a 30-45 minute session in the morning and another 45 minute session at night. I'm not able to attend my normal bootcamp classes this week so the cardio is coming on the elliptical, treadmill and bike.As far as the lifting sessions go, I hit back on Monday, shoulders yesterday, and light chest with heavy triceps and calves today. I'm feeling good with the weights and my poundages are staying right at normal. This is good considering I've dropped my calories and increased my cardio quite a bit over the past couple weeks. With all that extra workload and stress on my body, keeping my poundages consistent is significant.LIBIDO REPORT: Libido is still good. Now, ordinarily good would just be ok but with where I'm at in my prep right now, good is awesome! I have a habit of overtraining during prep, never taking a rest day and running my libido straight into the ground. So far, with three and a hlaf weeks to showtime, I feel like my libido is holding strong. I'm hoping Titanium can help it stay right there for the remainder of the prep because I know the wife will sure appreciate it I will post up progress pics later in the week. So far, so good!
    "I have a problem with overtraining....". I wish I had this problem man haha. Great update, glad to hear the intensity and libido is up .

  14. Was in the gym this morning before work and knocked out another Tri-set then super-set lift session. The tri-set consisted of incline dumbbell press for 15 reps, immediately to overhead triceps extensions for 15 reps, then immediately to bicep curls for 15 reps. I again used 50lb dumbbells for the inclines and a 60lb ez curl bar for the extension and curls. 4 total tri-sets. Then....the super-set consisted of Smith Machine bent over row for 15 reps and immediately to the Hammerstrength shoulder press. I used 140lbs for the row and 70lbs for the shoulder presses. 4 total super-sets. I had a really nice and inflated pump going and I was able to keep the heart-rate up. After the weights, I hit the elliptical for 45 minutes and just finished with another 30 minutes on the bike tonight. Everything feels right where it needs to be.....diet is on (I'm keeping the carbs at around 150 for another couple days before going to 200 this weekend), workouts feel energized, and my sleep is good. Titanium is really bringing everything together. I think my last pics were from 8 days ago so I will post up progress pics tomorrow night. Weight this morning is holding steady at 191.

  17. ^^^agree. Keep it up

  18. Sorry for being absent the past few days...the workouts and diet have not suffered though. Today marks one week until showtime!! Here is the end of week recap: Wednesday was bootcamp in the morning (an hour of kettlebells, plyos, sprints, TRX suspension training, RIP trainers, medicine balls, battle ropes, etc.) I finished Wednesday with 45 min of cardio on the bike after the kids went to bed. I took the carbs up to about 175 on Wednesday and they stayed there the rest of the week. With the protein staying at about 250 grams a day and the fat remaining consistent, I have been right around 2300 calories a day. Thursday was all cardio for me. 45 minutes in the morning before work and an hour while watching Game 7. Friday, I was back at bootcamp in the morning. This morning, I ran through another cycle of the tri-set / super-set workout at the gym before going to bootcamp for another hour! My muscles have been completely worked but I feel great and ready to make the hard charge into Peak Week. I also hit an hour of posing with the team this morning to make sure everything is dialed in.

  19. The vivid dreams have continued as well as the increase in sleep efficiency. As of the past 3 days, my sleep efficiency has been at or above 90%. This is awesome and extremely valuable to me as with my super-busy schedule and home life, I may only get to "go to bed" for 6.5-7 hours a night. To be able to maximize that time and actually know that I am sleeping for almost all of it, is so valuable. Before Titanium, I remember being at 65-75% sleep efficiency so I was probably losing over an hour of quality sleep a night! If for no other reason, Titanium will be included in my staple supp regimine in the future, as long as the numbers prove themselves after the run is over. Man...these dreams have become nightly and are much more detailed and involved than I remember dreams being in a long time. As I stated before, they are not all or exclusively of the erotic variety, but they are consistent. In my mind, knowing that dreaming correlated to REM sleep, I have to think the increase in quality sleep efficiency is being proven here, just based on the quantity and quality of the dreams. If I am spending more time in quality REM sleep, than it would make sense that I have more opportunity to dream and thus would have more, longer, and probably intense dreams. Awesome!!

    I'm right at 4%. I had by bf done recently with calipers and that's what I came in at. I've used a BodPod for the last 2 competitions to track where my bodyfat was. I don't have access to a BodPod machine this time around so the calipers will have to do. I feel and look like I'm right around where I was for my November show and that was at 4.3% bf. I'm 4-5 pounds heavier though with muscle built over the last 7 months.Name:  1.jpg
