Honestly believe ABE has to do w/ my aggression...I'm not as passive when dealing w/ other people....its not that I'm yelling like a roid rage but almost like an "im in control bitch so there's nothing you can do about it" haha
I am all that is MAN!

Day 9 (July 24) Weight: 189
Today was my typical day but my god, I noticed some great things today from ABE:
Weighed in at 189 after eating a TON of food before bed (resulted in no weight gain from yesterday)
Strength gains kicking in!!!
Max Hang Clean- 210 (Form is terrible....can do MUCH more weight if form was proper)
Speed Bench (Bar speed on tendo unit must be @ least 1m/sec)- last week- 75 lbs, today- 85 lbs
Single Leg Split Squat (Bar speed on tendo unit @ least .8m/sec)- llast week- 65 lbs, today- 95 lbs
Shoulder Complex- last week- 15 lbs, today- completed one set w/ 20 lbs
Curls- last week- 25 lbs, today- 30 lbs
Single leg hip bridge- last week- 85 lbs, today- 105 lbs
Hammer row- last week- 3 plates, today- 3 plates plus 5 lb plate
T100- last week- 3 sets to get 100 reps, today- only 2 sets to get to 100 reps
Core Circuit- a lot easier!
Grip Holds- increased 15 lbs
Granny toss- last week- 25lbs, today- 30 lbs
Damn, talk about big time strength gains in a matter of a week! Some of my exercises increased 30 pounds in a week! What the **** is that all about? I'm really starting to feel the product kick in towards strength gains.....haha feel like im on that juice....but in all seriousness, im in awe w/ what i accomplished today. some of my lifts go up 5-10 pounds here or there, but i experienced a 30 pound jump in 2 of my exercises in a week...that is unheard of for me....STRENGTH IS COMING
Also, I notice on my workout days that i can eat lots of food and wake up the next morning at the same weight....if i wasn't taking ABE, i would have been about 3 lbs heavier from personal experience
****As I told you all, I am choosing to maintain my weight while taking ABE....looking for strength gains and body recomp
After 9 days of taking ABE, Im now noticing the potency of the proeduct
Nice. This is turning into a great log!!

Awesome results so far. Dude I told you. Might as well order your second bottle now, and throw Erase or EPro in there for weeks 4-8.
Thank Me Later
Day 10 (July 25) Weight: 191
Other than my speed and conditioning session today which went well, my younger bro (year younger than me) and I had a deep conversation about my goals and what is important to me. As I told you at the beginning of my log, I said that I wanted to bulk but ended up changing my mind to maintain my weight....I told him for the first time that I believe I have what it takes to play in the NFL @ fullback and I thought he would laugh at me but he didn't....he was serious about the issue and told me to gain weight.....the reason why i don't want to gain weight is because i dont want to get fat and be embarrassed to take my shirt off in front of sexy girls....but in all seriousness, i have pretty good genetics where if i pack on weight its more of a massive look....all in all, i fear to bulk bc i dont want to have a high bf%.....my bro told me to weigh my options and ask what is more important in my life right now, looking ripped for girls or achieving my goals football? i told him football is more important at the moment bc sooner or later ill never be able to play again and girls will always be around.....he said if things dont work out well w/ the weight gain just shed it off and yes, it is that easy for me to gain and lose weight
Another person i talked to about bulking for the first time is my strength coach....he told me that a 190 pound fullback is not enough weight for me (even though i hit like a bada$$, not to brag) and told me i should be around 215....he said realistically there is no way for me to bulk w/ the season coming up in a couple weeks, so he asked me what my weight is currently and I told him low 190s....he wants me to go into camp at 195 and keep my weight up to 200 by my first game in September since we will be lifting in season a couple times per week....let's be honest, the running back should not weigh more than the fullback
All in all, i have always been skeptical about gaining or maintaining my weight....after getting opinions by 2 ppl who i trust, I am now committed towards my bulk and the plus side is that im taking ABE! I fear bulking so much bc i remember how i used to look at 215 during my junior yr in high school....carried lots of body fat but ill admit that i wasnt as active and my nutrition wasnt as great....i just dont want to go back to the old me
I have already sketched out my goals for what i intend on doing towards my weight
This year: get to 195 by August 17 and maintain at 200 throughout this season (jr yr in college)
Off season going into my senior yr: run two 8 week cycles of ABE (winter and summer) and pack on 10 lbs each cycle, so im up to 220
Keep in mind that I will be keeping an eye on my body whether this bulk looks unhealthy...if it does, then I will stop!
Ive realized that God gave me a tremendous gift for the love and talent in the game of football....there is not a day that goes by where i do not think about it...however, playing fullback at 190 will not get it done...its time to pack on the weight, become more explosive, stay in shape as best as i can w/ endurance, and make it happen
i pretty much physically manhandle 205-230 pound linebackers when im at 190...imagine me at the weight that i want to be at
Honestly, if you are looking to add some mass going into camp you are going to have to cut down a little bit on the conditioning. If you upped your amount of lifting days per week and took a day or two off from conditioning you will most definitely see some gains in mass. Especially being a fullback, you don't have to stress conditioning as much as other positions. Power is your main priority. If you are worried about not being conditioned enough to enter camp, don't stress it that much. Conditioning doesn't take much time. Maybe 2 weeks at the most. That's what training camp is for anyways. But that's just my 2 cents. Good luck either way.
Rarchib, thanks for the advice....by no means am i close-minded....camp starts in about 3 weeks and our conditioning test is 16 110yards where running backs/fullbacks must be at 17 sec or under w/ a 45 sec break in between....today i did 8 and i plan on working my way up to 16 before camp so i can pass it w/ flying colors
Blah I hate the college conditioning tests. Working with a guy who has to do the same 110s 16 times for conditioning.
Don't miss out on the next deal:
Day 11 (July 26) Weight: 192
Friday is my off day and really enjoy this day because im usually tired, beat, and get to spend more time with family and friends. Other then work from 8-4:30, I went home, helped my bro out w/ chemistry for his chemistry placement exam and ate dinner which was beef stew and potatoes (2 caps ABE). From that point on I spent my Friday night chillin out w/ my family for once.
Since this is an Anabeta Elite log, here are some things I noticed:
1. After eating dinner w/ my 2 caps, all my muscles felt full and dense-----it's not that they were more defined or anything, but my muscles had that fullness which made me feel very strong and powerful!
2. I was playing catch w/ my little sister w/ a tank-top on and she commented on the veins on both shoulders.....i have always had them but they are popping out a lot more...here's what she said, "what the heck are those? I didn't know you had those veins"
3. Have a better sense of well-being....im naturally a serious person but im more joyful and funnier
****I'm actually a little disappointed because I forgot to take 2 more caps of ABE in order to fulfill my daily 4 caps I fell asleep around 9:30pm and woke up to take 2 more ABE caps and write up this log....technically, since I took these ABE caps @ 4 am, I only consumed 2 out of 4 caps for July 26 but will be consuming 6 caps today (July 27): 2 caps from 4am, 2prewkout, 2postworkout.....this should be interesting though to see how my body responds
In a nutshell, I was only able to consume 2 caps of ABE when I should be taking 4 daily....however, I am making that up w/ 6 caps the next day
Having that full dense look without a fresh gym pump sounds like a dream come true. It is also never a bad thing to be hella vascular! That peace of mind part isn't as heavily reported but certainly must be welcomed!
Good update bro.
Day 12 (July 27) Weight: 191
Hey everyone, so today was a damn good one because i didnt have to work Besides that, let me tell you what went down during my lifting and speed sessions!
Front Squat (1 Rep Max)- 260
Resisted Jumps 4x4- used more resistance this week!
Chin ups 3x8 (last week- 8 8 7 reps, today-completed all 3 sets!)
Lateral Lunges 3x5 each leg (last week-135 155 160, today- 145, 155, 165!)
Roll Outs 3x10 (last week- body weight, today-used a weighted vest last set!)
Close Grip Bench Press w/ chains on each side 3x12 (last week- - 125 135 145x11, today- same exact results but i was super-setting w/ curls )
Glute/Ham Raises 3x8 (last week- body weight, today-used 5lb plate last set)
Wrestler's Twist 3x6 (last week- no weight on the bar, today- added a 10lb plate last set)
AB/AD 2x10- used blue band instead of green band for more
Hex Holds Grip 3x45 sec- 15, 15, 20 for 44 sec
Ran like i was runnin from the cops!
****I think what we can conclude here is that weight is increasing in the weight room and im running faster! Wish i could have cleaned up my diet a bit today: ate a lot of cottage cheese w/ cereal, peanut butter sandwiches, and ate out bc my dad wanted to....the food may not have been that bad but i wish i could've ate a damn good home cooked meal instead of all that crap
Day 13 (July 28) Weight: 193
Had an off day today, so there's nothing important to report in terms of weight room and speed numbers. However, I'm looking forward to using ABE for all of my bulking phases.
By August 17: Weigh 195
By September 7: Weigh 200 and play @ this weight for my junior yr.
For my final college football off-season, I will run 2 more 8 week cycles which will be used in winter and summer (gain 10 lbs for each cycle) = 220 senior year!
I want to be a ****in beast a wreck some players up! I am hoping that when I reach 220 I will still be able to see the veins on my upper body and definition in my abs/obliques....i need to make sure that every meal is accounted for
Day 14 (July 29) Weight: 193
What up world! So my goal is to maintain my 193, get to 194 next week, and 195 going into the third week which will be the start of football and work my way to 200 by September 7. Lifting went pretty well: you be the judge
Max Bench (+10): 245 to 255 in 3 weeks

Box Squat for speed: 115
Single leg shoulder Press (+5): 55 to 60(got 6/8 reps)

Bar Holds: ****in terrible, couldnt even do 185 for 45 sec, must've been burnt out from pushin myself in the gym today
I'm going to change my diet up, I tend to eat lots of cereal, cottage cheese, greek yogurt and peanut butter because that's what i always crave....but i feel that the more animal protein i eat, the more beastly i become!
