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.
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.

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 :-(

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

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 too....in 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

underhand CG pull ups
front lat pulldown
5 sets 8-12 working up to 100 lbs on last 2 sets, got soe forced reps from a buddy as well
cg underhand pulldown
4 sets 8-12
pendlay row - first time i havent done these early in the workout and man was i weaker....usually do 135-155
1 arm db row - semi strict form not textbook but not bad
4 sets of 12 with 75 then 1 set of 15 with 45, perfect form reps
cable low row - 4 sets 10-12 drop on last set
chest supported row
4 sets 10-15 drop on last set
decline bench reverse crunch - 5 sets
07-20-2013 11:20 PM
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!
07-22-2013 11:19 PM

another good workout fueled by produgy, pump was not as crazy as normal and focus was a little hit an miss, i think it is due to my lack of sleep lately and i think i was a little dehydrated today.....still a pretty solid workout, will be hitting back toorrow, gotta work on my lats so lots of pullups and pulldowns!
07-26-2013 11:58 PM
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.

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
