  1. Proud of you being smart but pro-active about fixing your injury brother. Be patient, be smart, but don't be a weenie. There's a difference, & sounds like you're on the money.


  2. 7/31 - Wednesday

    Wednesday was back and triceps. I had a solid lift. Let me get the numbers down then I will comment on more.

    Back
    T Bar Row -
    70x12
    95x10
    110x8 -------PR

    V Bar Row
    150x12
    165x10
    180x8 ------PR

    Pull Up
    Three Sets Body Weight

    Deadlifts!!!!! - finally back

    135x12 of three sets

    Triceps
    Skull Crusher
    70x12
    80x10
    90x8

    Tricep Rope Ext
    Three sets 12,10,8

    Glad I was able to get back to deadlifts. it was only 135 and I woke up thursday so sore!! crazy how a few weeks off from legs does to you when you get back. Going to add machine hack squats and leg press soon and slowly bring back my legs.

    I didnt workout today (Friday). I was extremely tired all day. Ive been this way for a week now. I could literally nap all day long. Idk whats up with that. acne is still present and libido is sky high. Strength is increasing. I will workout tomorrow (Saturday, 8/3) and weigh in and do a rating of the supplement so far. Any questions, comments and/or suggestions on training or eating just let me know!

  3. Don't eat like sh*t the way I have been. There's something dirty or too much questionable stuff daily for me. I'm 23 & have a fair amount of lean mass, so that's going in my favor in that regard, but if I was 40 I'd be fat as a town dog by now the way I'm going, muscle or no.

    Actually really suprised with how ridiculously well I'm keeping fat off given the surplus of calories & all the simple carbs & bad fats I keep hitting. Maybe the Mass FX is helping there some too?

    I'm the same way. I make sure I get all my eggs, chicken, greens... Etc but for how lean I am, I eat so dirty and I just stay lean all year. I'm 23 also. I haven't noticed anything different in body comp yet. I haven't changed my diet and body weight /mirror has been the same. I'll post my update tonight and I'll have more on this topic.

  6. 8/4 Sunday night update

    Alright guys here is a little two week review. I'm on my phone so if spelling errors occur, I apologize. I want to say that I will not contribute positive or negative things I experience with the product just yet. It's only two weeks but I want to get out what I am feeling and we can compare what i see with other people's experiences who are logging as well. Again, this is an 8 week log so we have plenty of time to see what stays and what doesn't. I will be 100 percent honest.

    Positives

    Mild strength gains already. It's only been two weeks and I'm starting to see the numbers move on a few lifts.

    Rise in hormones is noticeable as well. This includes acne and libido increase.

    Appetite has been random but for the most part it has been higher than normal.

    Body comp has been great. Eating more cheat meals and not gaining fat that I can tell.

    Negatives

    Sleep. I have been so tired all day long. This morning I went to church. Woke up at 630am, got home at 1 from lunch and took a three hour nap. It's 920pm and I wanna hit the sheets already. This feeling has been with me for the past week. Let's hope things improve here.

    Acne was increasing for the first week but has slowly declined. This is normal for me when I use test boosters.


    More thoughts, nothing positive or negative, just my thoughts.....

    No abnormal aggression, no crazy side effects. Weight gain is back at where it was at beginning of stack at 174. I have no clue what my bf is. In april/may it was at 8 percent but I'm a bit higher now. Tomorrow is back and triceps and I will hit some legs to slowly bring my foot back to strength.

  7. Monday - 8/5

    Today was back and triceps. Today overall was the best day of the stack. here are the numbers. last time numbers are to the RIGHT

    Back

    Lat Pulldown
    145x12 --------------140x12
    155x10---------------150x10
    165x8----------------160x8 5 pound increase with same reps

    BB Row
    145x12---------------135x8
    155x9-----------------150x10
    165x6----------------160x8



    Pull Ups
    Three sets all drop sets

    Triceps

    Reverse Grip Bench
    195x12-------------185x10
    225x8---------------205x8
    235x6--------------225x6 HUGE INCREASE!!!!!!

    Tricep Rope

    3 sets all drop sets


    Strength on a few lifts here was VERY noticeable. My first set of reverse grip bench was nothing. Those were the fastest reps I have ever done. I was blown away no joke.

    Update on body comp - Today I feel like I had a pump all day long. Not sure if it is weight gain or just water weight or what but something is there. will continue to monitor

    Update on sleep - Today was the best day on how my energy was throughout the day. I started on my nasal sprays yesterday so that may have been the issue and not the supplement. I am still tired throughout the day, but not near as back as the past week. Again, will continue to monitor this. Tomorrow I start back at work since I can walk with no pain now. School starts in a few weeks. last semester of nursing school! whoo!!!!

    I feel left out! nobody is following this log! you all suck! haha jk!

  16. Orange Triad is good with 100mg of pantothenic but I used to have my son on MVP by Millennium because it has 150 per dose. It really kept his acne thru the teen years in control.

  19. Smashin PR's all over here!

  20. Ok so that chest and bi workout was awesome. i was able to hit 100s on incline AFTER putting up 275x3 on BB bench. I was worn out but i had my jam on and was in the mood to hit it hard!

    Acne has subsided. Seems to come in waves. Libido is not fluctuating anymore. constant high. appetite fluctuates. I get a feel with this product somewhat like i do with Anabeta. kind of like an all day pump. my muscles just feel full all day. im loving it. another thing im loving is i have an entire sealed bottle left! haha. Did not workout today. was busy rebuilding an old guitar. will hit it tomorrow and weigh in

  21. Friday

    yesterday I did back and triceps as well as more leg work slowly working back. Here are the numbers.

    T bar row machine 90x12 100x8 105x6

    Skull crushers 70x12 80x12 90x7

    V bar row 150x12 165x10 180x8

    Tricep Rope extension three drops

    leg press very light window makers

    Calf raises DC

    All in all good workout. No strength improvement. At the end of next week I will compare lifts from week one and see can see the progress. Will do the same for the end of week 8. My ankle is sore right now so I may have done too much on legs. Let's see how I feel tomorrow. If it's okay, I may consider adding a leg day and taking away an upper body day. If I do this, it would be something like Monday back biceps, Wednesday chest triceps, Friday legs and I will add more volume to each day vs what I'm doing now since it's twice a week right now. Still will keep the same lifts so we can track progress.

  22. Doing great work tracking this R1. Treat that ankle with some love if it's still sore, for sure. The hunger comes in waves for me as well. Libido is always high. Almost ready to pass out I was so tired last night, eyes droopy, after being up for 19 hrs & working overtime & low sleep, & when me & the gal finally got some alone time...I was wide awake, in a heartbeat

  23. eating some "mexican stew" right now. basically steak and potatoes in a thick soup. gonna get ready to go to the gym soon. The new routine is this:

    Monday - Chest/Bi - will do around 12 sets / muscle group

    Wednesday - Legs - will do what i can.

    Friday - Back/Tri

  24. Monday 8/12

    Today was chest and biceps. Broke another PR. All in all great workout. Seems like my strength gains are showing on mainly compound lifts. Here are the numbers

    Bench 225x8 255x6 275x4

    Db curl 35x12 40x10 45x8

    Incline machine 90x12 140x8 160x6

    Preacher curl machine three sets all drop sets of 12 reps

    Rope hammer sets superset with flat bench machine three total sets 15,13,11

    I keep forgetting to weigh in. Will try to do so Wednesday and Friday. The pumps I have been getting have been great. The PR was 275x4. Last week it was 275x3. Funny thing is I probably could have done five instead of four. I'm really curious to see how this treats me weeks 4-8

    Don't worry R1 we all have off days from time to time. I'm going thru one myself at the moment lol. Somedays the weights just feel heavy as hell and other days I feel like I can throw them. But keep at it brother and get that recovery in and you will be back stronger.

  29. 8/20

    Just got back from the orthopedic hospital. received good news. ankle is stable and healing beyond expectations. no need for additional PT since im doing it on my own. he stretched out the ligaments and that hurt but my foot hasnt been stretched like that in a long time. anyways, wanted to give my thoughts on the log so far. some areas im disappointed in, others i am not.

    disclaimer: Going into the log, i had no clue in means of bulk/cut/recomp..etc what the product was intended to do. Any of my negative and positive feels on the product are not necessarily contributed to the product alone. just stating what i am feeling

    The Bad

    Endurance - endurance has been low. This may be due to allergies/diet. Today i am going to start to really clean it up but had to state this. I will get through half a workout and i wanna take a nap. This has been an issue for the past 3 weeks.

    Thats the only negative thing I have at the moment

    The Good

    Body Composition - My friends tell me i look thicker, but the scale is getting lower. Personally, i cant tell a difference, but other people can

    Strength - although there isnt any major strength gains, gains are gains whether small or big. They seem to be coming on my compound lifts more than anything.

    Appetite - it has been random, but its better than my normal appetite all the time. The increase comes in waves and i take advantage of this.

    Acne - comes in waves as well, but shows increase in hormones.
