  1. Becoming the next prodigy with PNI's Prodigy

    Whats up guys and welcome! Glad to have everyone in!

    Huge thanks to PNI for letting me log this amazing product. I had tried the OG Prodigy just a month ago so its effects are fresh in my mind for sure. I thought it was amazing so i really ant wait to try this new and improved formula. The thing that I find most intriguing with the new formula is the 1g!of agmatine! Also since I LOVE amazing focus, the addition of the Dendrobium (sp?)extract really excites me.

    current stats
    height - 5'9
    weight - 168
    do not know maxes since i have not maxedout in a while rough estimates -

    bench - 240
    squat - 340
    DL - 460

    Bodyfat - around 9-10% id say,i will try to get some pics up within a few days.

    I am currently on 100mg/wk test cyp for TRT due to not producing any LH and therefore almost 0 testosterone

    Training wise I train very high volume, usually starting out heavy and doing some backoff or drop sets after......

    I train - chest/tris (sometimes add light shoulders)
    Back/bis (if I run out of time ill do bis with shoulder)

    My most lagging parts are biceps and lats - i am strong on rows but my pullups are horrible

    As of right now I follow IF and really just eat once a day , one huge meal. I am working on getting out of that habit and getting on a more consistent eating pattern so my nights arent spent jsut eating all night lol I just love being able to eat so much at once lol.

  2. todays workout - legs

    pre exhaust leg ext
    4 sets 15-20 with double drop on last set

    front squat - constant tension very slow negative (crazy how much weight i have to cut), also very short rests, not more than 60s


    Back squat - same as front squat


    leg press
    6 plates x 8-10 - 4 sets drop one plate at a time to 1 plate on last set
    3 plates 2 sets of as many as possible

    Hack Squat
    110x12-15 4 sets slow negatives short rests

    bulgarian split squat holding 30 lb DB in front of body at chest level
    4 sets 10-15

    glute bridge - had shoulders a lot high than normal so there was constant tension the whole time, much harder

    185x10 with 10 second hold on last rep

    good morning - havent done these in along time so tried them out


    glute ham raise 5 x 10 - i hold onto a pole while i do these so i control the negative and assist myself on the way up, tear my hammies up!

    lying leg curl and seated leg curl 3 sets 10-15 each with drop on last set

  3. i mixed 1 scoop of prodigy in about 20 oz of water....mixes super easy,but mixes much lighter than the original prodigy...... i think it needs to be mixed in a lot less water,i sipped throughout my workout.

    I have fruit punch flavor and it was barely noticable with that much water.

    I did notice amazing focus which is what I love about certain preworkouts

    the COP helped my endurance, I was not as winded and seemed to recover rather quickly during my short rest periods......looking forward to testing this out sum more, hope to get some sick pumps on chest day :-) tomorrow will be an off day so ill have to wait till friday :-(

  4. Waiting for the mailman like I did for Santa when I was little for my tub, should be some great logs!

  9. I am excited to see everyones feedback on Prodigy!!!

  10. 2nd Prodigy fueled workout today....chest/tris/abs

    I mixed prodigy with about 16 oz of water today (less than last time), also did about 1.5 scoops. - taste was still not that strong, doesnt taste bad at all just very watery.....i did try a little powder on my finger and it was a different type of fruit punch, again, not bad, but not candy like either ill try it again and give a better description.

    i drank a large amount in the beginning of the workout and sipped throughout, never actually finished which is good since I am a stim junkie and the fact that i didnt need it all is a good sign. Again focus was incredible, so far loving the focus i get on this!

    pumps were def. noticeable today, chest was swollen for sure, wasnt like a painful pump but jsut an all over swoleness haha. although when doing weighted dips it really felt like my sternum was going to rip apart after a few sets......good stuff!!!

    decided to pre exhaust the chest a little since after last week my shoulders were more sore than my chest

  11. So today i wanted to see what kinda kick i could really get from prodigy so i put almost 2 scoops into about 20 oz of water....again a very watered down taste, mixabililty is perfect, a couple shakes and its gone. so i chugged about half and set it down.....then s**t got real. UNBELIEVABLE focus and energy..... i couldn't help but move around in between sets, i was walking all over the gym just like staring into space, it was so sick. Also, usually on back day i have a very hard ie feeling the right side of my body work, not today! the pump in my back was awesoe, contractions were great and pump my back!!! haha can u tell i excited haha

    quick note - i weighed in today with pants and long sleeve shirt on and was only 168 :-( i thought my arms were looking smaller, not happy, even though my dang stomach is the same size, i have like a pouch on my lower abs and it doesnt even feel like fat....any chance this is like fat deposits for cortisol or something?

    the workout - back, no deads today, legs are still sore from leg day.....focused on getting some lats for sure, i am lacking big time and since i have a wide waist i gotta do whatever i can to get wider.

    wide grip pullups - my biggest weak spot by far, i can row a decent amount but not pullups at all

  12. soe friends at the gym asked what was up with me, it looked like i wanted to kill the weights and i aid i did haha and too much energy (in a good way ) and talked up prodigy, might let the try a scoop if i feel generous, probably not though i love this stuff so far!

  13. prodigy is quickly becoming my go to, favorite preworkout. I have tried almost every preworkout and this is top 3 if not #1 in my book, so far at least in terms of performance in the gym. the energy is amazing i stim tolerant and dont even need ore than a scoop, focus is incredible, i jsut pace back and forth beween sets, staring off into space, i cant help but move around, i love it!!

  17. Nice log so far and I am following along because I want to see how the new version of Prodigy is working for you because
    I liked the old version and I got a few people hooked on it but now the formula has changed. Lol I usually am to crazy about
    companies that change something that isn't broken but I'll continue checking the logs and see what people think about it.

  18. Well well well look who is running a log of prodigy.... Good to see ya using it. One of the best pre workouts I have used. Especially V2.0

    anyone have issues with one leg overpowering the other? MY left leg is much bigger than the other, what has worked best for you to even them out....1 leg leg presses? I usually do 1 leg squats on te smith machine or bulgarian split squats, today i did lunges, have been thinking about 1 leg leg press though. I also try to focus on really pulling with my right more than my left on glute ham raises and leg curls.

  29. My right leg has a lot more stabilization power than my left due to it being my plant leg for just about everything. I have noticed that doing 1 leg isolation exercises have helped a bit after doing my main movements. And BTW im still fallowing along brother! Youre doing great work!
    Hit me up with any questions any time.

  30. Thanks man....glutes are torched today, love it lol...... w ill update todays workout later......what else would you guys like to see in here before this is over let me know
