    Not much to note from versa just yet

    Also wondering if anyone had dosing suggestions for versa
    Looking swole ace.


    Glad you grabbed some VERSA-1™ man; I think you'll enjoy it.

    Dosing is pretty straight forward. On training days, take 1 cap 30-60 minutes pre-workout (I usually do ~40mins pre), preferably with stimulants. On non-training days, I'd recommend taking it in the morning, but anytime of day would be fine. I you use any stims in the morning, I'd take VERSA-1 with them.


    Edit: I'm slow.

    Thanks classic!

    THanks man.. My brother talked me into eating pizza last night..

    I didn't go too overboard, maybe 4-5 slices..
    Feeling full, holding a little water

    Anyway I appreciate the response again. Should I take my stimulant before or literally drink my pwo as I take versa?

    Also, watching snags transform and seeing you're going to compete has got me itching.

    There's one six Weeks away but I've decided I'm going to continue my diet/recomp (depending on where versa leads me) then bulk this winter and dedicate it to getting my legs big as **** before I step on stage in the spring.

    **
    I know my diet reflects what will happen as far as leaning/recomping, but I'm sure I'll be able to tell if versa leans me one way or the other

    No problem ace. A little pizza shouldn't do much damage. Did you use AP prior?

    I've tried it both ways and don't think it makes a big difference. I usually sip my pre-workout for 20mins+ on the ride to the gym and take VERSA-1 at any point during that time.

    Sounds like a solid plan. I'm already looking forward to adding some size as soon as my show is over lol. I might join you in the BB category, next time around.

    Yeah, you seem pretty in tune with your body, which should help you pick up on some effects. One thing that I tend to notice is an increase in vascularity, independent of my body fat level.

    My buddy was praising it saying out makes him so full and vascular..
    I'm already pretty vascular at this bf%, so if I get much more vascular I'll know what it's from. (no idea what I'm at, probably 8-10)

    For the record, I love VERSA-1. I'm using it right now leading into a show. For me the highlights are strength and day-long energy, but it does so much more than that.

    I think AP will help lean you out or even provide a nice recomp if you plan your diet to do so.

    when I started this I was already cutting. This just helped move it along.

    As of the last week or two I've started eating more (and I've seen a nice recomping effect)

    Not sure about a dirty bulk. I'd assume if you were to use it before your cheat meals then it might help to minimize fat gains.

    But if you're eating bad all the time, you're going to get fatter, can't out supp a bad diet... Diet is king.
    Great post here Ace!!

    All caught up bud. Out of town for a bit but I'm back.

    Interested to see how VERSA-1(TM) treats you.

    Back shot has you looking large and ripped buddy

    Thanks buddy. And i'm not sure about the Versa and trt.

    I'm not even a week into versa yet, so I'll wait to comment on that.

    I've had good leaning effects from the AP for sure, diet permitting.

    As far as results go it should make no difference, but as always we recommend checking with your prescribing doctor before adding any supplements. Get the OK and I think you'll love VERSA-1™ just like anyone else.

    Would u say versa is better for a bulk or cut? Does it help keep fat gain down during a bulk?

    Oh, that's a tough one. Personally, I prefer it for cutting because it seems to correct the issues that I tend to have. On the other hand you have people who get a massive appetite increase from it which is obviously going to make cutting difficult. Yes, many do find that it helps control fat gain while bulking. That was actually something that seemed to be a highlight of the product for most of the beta testers.

    I've changed my training where I am now hitting everything twice a week besides arms which are once a week sometimes every other week.

    It's looking like this

    mon: Legs (squat plus hamstring accessory)
    Tues: Heavy back light chest/delt
    Wed: Arms
    Thurs: Heavy chest light back/delt
    Fri: Legs (pulls plus quad accessory)
    Sat and sun completely off

    This is the first week i'm adding in the second chest and delt day.
    I added in the first Friday session about a month ago

    Core and calve work On leg days
    Conditioning usually on arms


    to adjust for this I changed my Friday to a medium carb day, roughly 2-300

    I've been staying real lean, and my strength hasn't gone down. Hell I think i'm getting stronger actually. and I do notice an increase in vascularity.



    Sorry for slacking on the training updates, I've been really busy lately.

    I intend to update at least a few of my favorite or heavy sessions from the last two Weeks.

    Anyway here's a few update pics
    Was 178 Monday, 180 Tuesday

    I don't weigh myself often but I do once in a while

    Wow, why haven't I ever thought to do walking lunges with chains? That is a great idea, hands free!

    That and you don't have to worry about keeping them from swinging as you lunge. I'm definitely going to try it.

    Thanks. No, I don't. I have the rest posted in my precontest long on the USPlabs home board. If you want to see them just PM me and I'll link you to it.

    Sounds about right.

    That's awesome ace. The lower abdominals is where the vascularity really picks up for me as well. You've got me anxious to start back up.

    Glad you enjoyed your run with AP man.

    Like I said, I've been super busy so I apologize for the lack of updates.

    08/20 upper
    head down rear delt fly superset slight incline db press
    15x6x20 // 45x2x20, 60x4x18

    fat man rows ss incline BB 2 board
    BWx4x10 // 135x4x8

    -shoulder was mad, so i kept it light. i just couldn't get a good pop so i decided to shut it down

    YTW ss CG BB incline 2board
    3lbx4x8 // 135x4x8

    - the cg felt a little better, but still just not right

    finished with a triple set
    1) WG pulldown 80x4x15
    2)cable laterals 30x4x15
    3)machine seated press idk x 4x12

    - pulldowns done with a constant tension
    -laterals had added DB swing partials with the last 2 sets
    - the presses were all done with dropsets i just didnt record them
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    08/22 back

    Keiser supinating pullup
    wide grip bw x 8
    shoulderish width: worked up in chains until i got to hanging 5 chains for four sets of 5

    - about half the chain was off the floor at the top, with alot of deload at the bottom. these are GREAT and as you will see i continued them for a few weeks.

    1 arm barbell row with MD handle
    75x2x8
    85x2x8
    - not including handle or bb weight, kind of running out of room as well

    BB pendlay

    205x3x5

    Rack Row
    225x6
    275x6
    315x3x6

    - I'll try to get a video of these, but they're not a row, they more resemble the locking out of a deadlift, except with no hip involvment at all and exaggerated Lat / upperback involvement.

    two dropsets of baseball pullovers
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    08/23 legs

    265x9
    285x10
    305x10
    325x10
    345x7

    -shoulder doesn't like getting back to the bar (hence why i always use SSB) but i do love this mastadon..
    squats felt great today, but reps are a bitch. Might as well be doing cardio

    2)low pulley high row (facepulls) 60x4x10
    3) PVC pipe bandell bar bench 2x15

    -chest row did OH WG. final set using 4 different grips
    - face pull focusing on that upper back flex at the top
    - bandell bar used two 10lb kettleballs and one 15lb and just tried to keep my **** together
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    scap pulldowns
    100x4x12

    I'm definetly liking your workouts, man.

    The squat bar we have at my gym is a 55lber, so it's not the Mastadon, but just as thick and gnarly. It's given my back an awesome squat bar callus.

    Actually...I want to weight this ****er now...maybe it is a Mastadon and I've been squatting 5lbs more than I thought this entire time!

    Thanks Sean. I'm glad you appreciate it.

    I really love that Mastadon, but my shoulders really do not like getting back into a traditional squat position, so I have to use it sparingly if I want to do any upper body pressing the days after

    Sup update.. Ran out of AP. Throughly enjoyed it. have a half bottle of versa and have been thoroughly enjoying it. Was debating to grab another bottle and try 2x day just bc i've been reading about ppl doing that.

    Any thoughts guys?
    Also i'm getting good results from one so that makes me wonder if it'd even be worth it

    I'm definetly liking AP. I don't know why I waited to long to try it. I think it's helped me lean out some actually. I'm picking up another bottle once I get through my other GDAs I have on hand.

    May have to pick up Versa again. I felt an increased work capacity in it, I think

    AP is great man. My diet was dialed in to rip up, but I think AP and versa have really sped up my leaning out process..

    Also I do notice I can do so much at the gym and while i'm on versa I can ALWAYS do more.. It's like that fatigue just never sets in

    I got to warm up with Lexen's resident Mastodon, that sucker is awesome! Fat, toothy, and sturdy. Just how I like my women.
