    I still don't see a stim effect from it. Maybe it's so slight that if I don't try to notice it I don't see it. I'll try to keep aware of my energy level when I take my next dose

    Some Ergopharm AMP, prop blend with 70mg of caff/cap & the other 250 or so mg is a blend of Chocamine for appetite suppressant (my ghrelin is nuts on these mornings at work where I've been up w/ a gal all night) & DMAA. Grabbed a bottle for $10 earlier this year of NP since they've been trying to eliminate the last of the DMAA products. 3 caps was awesome the other day - zero jitters, zero crash, smooth reliable energy for about 6 hrs & heavily suppressed appetite to keep things clean. Last thing I need is to pound some mcdonalds bfast or some trash when my cortisol is already thru the roof from so little sleep.

    I don't use this routinely, both to save it and avoid a tolerance buildup. Less than once/wk. 2-3 caps does the trick.

    All things in time! Perfect opportunity to attack the top end hard now so you can have the time to give some love to the big lifts when you're foot is healed.

    Haha my ass & back are animals...it's this whole pressing/upper body thing I need to figure out - wish my bench could keep up a tad bit better! The way it's going I'm liable to deadlift double my benchpress within a year

    Thanks for all the kind words gentlemen!

    There was a guy there motivating me I'd just spot that was partial squatting...585 for 6 reps. Very high, but you can tell he's not a weenie regardless. Kind of puts you on the spot not to wimp out! The bar I was using didn't have knurling close enough so part of my hands were on smooth & I swear I almost dropped it every rep *smh*

    Use chains and negatives and half reps from the bottom on the bench press. Works for me anyway. And lots of lightweight explosive reps.

    Day 9 (202.0 lbs)

    Holy appetite Batman! Eating is never a chore, even when I'm full it seems. Definitely been more vascular as of late, absolutely no question. Not leaner, just more vascular. Acne has been coming up a bit too. Seems like beard is even growing faster. Libido is good, & mood has been stellar the entire time on this run so far. Whether that has been coincidental or not, who can say, but bigT has been feeling good too so perhaps the Mass FX might have some hand in this?

    Wednesday was a full off-day; took the lady for sushi & spent some time relaxing.

    Thursday was the lightest squat day of the week & bis/tris; cliffnotes were a workset of 5 reps @ 295 below parallel on squat & a full arm routine. Straight bro day, so hit 1 scoop of Juggernaut, 1 scp Hemavol, 3g of Cit Mal, 1g Agmatine, & 25g of CarbonX pre-workout.

    Arms were stupid ballooned compared to their real size:

    Begin Sitting Back Fully on Box, Lean Forward & then Explode Upwards 315x1, 355x1, 395x1

    Pullups BW x12, 10, 10, 8, 10
    Bb Row 135x10, 185x8, x8, x8
    Behind the Neck Pulldowns 90x15, 120x12, 12, 14 (forced)

    I skipped the grocery store til tomorrow for that reason....would have came home with half the meat section & probably some bad decisions!

    Got my knee sleeves on warming things up, about to go hit a heavier partial squat, some speedwork, & shoulder accesory. Saturday night powerlifting. Look out, got ma hata blockaz on & set to kill

    Thanks gents! I thought so too (for me, anyway); vasodilators & pump sets at the end of workout are funnnnn!

    I have been feeling crazy full lately - it's wild. And I don't take hemavol or bulk agmatine every day by any means. It's almost like Mass FX is having a GDA type of effect. Not so much on blood sugar, as I've taken it with nothing but 2 scoops of a protein blend & water & no drained feeling (despite only 10g carbs), but it does seem to have me feeling swoll & pumped. Could be a very interesting product for first 4wks of pct for anyone wanting to run both a t-booster & GDA but tighter on cash.

    Tonight's workout:

    Bb Backsquat 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 275x1, 315x1, 365x1,
    Performed with Slow, Controlled Negative to 2/3 Depth Above Parallel 410x1

    Speed Deadlift 135x5, 225x5, 315x3 x6 sets
    Speed Bench 135x5, 205x3 x8 sets
    Strict Standing Military 95x15, 115x15, x15, 135x10, x8
    Side-Lateral Raises ss w/ Rear Delt Flys
    25x12/20x15, 25x12/25x12, 25x12/25x8/4 (rest pause to finish)

    Feeling strong as an ox last couple workouts. Lots of carbs & cals and some sleep no doubt helped, but I mean I've really had to hold back today & yesterday on the squatting - it's feeling SO light I want to do extra work. I squat the 365 beltless tonight, way below parallel, like it was cake. Could have easily carried the 410 into the hole even after the slow descent, but just trying to stick with the program (I add 10lbs every wk & 5 wks to go). Speed pulls & bench felt lighter & faster too.

    Day 10 (199.8 lbs)

    Feel like I've shed some water weight from some awful eating friday (Chinese buffet at meal #3 instead of my packed sweet potato & chicken breasts, 1lb of hotwings at a bar meal #7, & stack of cinnamon glazed french toast @ 1am with friends coming home before bed lol). Abs looking clearer again, thankfully. Appetite has been up, up, up.

    Full off-day. Church, gettin' my vette dialed in with my tuner, & had a stupid huge meal at the mother's with her side of the family. You don't wanna know the details, because you'd just be mad, bro - that good of a cheat meal

    My life consists of cheat meals. It's the way I roll and I won't change for anybody! Lol. Btw if you like the kind of food, if you get a steak and pork burrito at Chipotle and get the full serving of meat of each one you're looking at an insane burrito with at least 80 grams of protein. Between that and the rice I get a pretty substantial food buzz :-)

    I was wondering when you were going to start logging again!
    I'm in late on this, well very late actually, but subbed: you're putting in all the work and getting the size to boot, keep killing it.

    I have been feeling crazy full lately - it's wild. And I don't take hemavol or bulk agmatine every day by any means. It's almost like Mass FX is having a GDA type of effect. Not so much on blood sugar, as I've taken it with nothing but 2 scoops of a protein blend & water & no drained feeling (despite only 10g carbs), but it does seem to have me feeling swoll & pumped. Could be a very interesting product for first 4wks of pct for anyone wanting to run both a t-booster & GDA but tighter on cash.

    Tonight's workout:

    Bb Backsquat 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 275x1, 315x1, 365x1,
    Performed with Slow, Controlled Negative to 2/3 Depth Above Parallel 410x1

    Speed Deadlift 135x5, 225x5, 315x3 x6 sets
    Speed Bench 135x5, 205x3 x8 sets
    Strict Standing Military 95x15, 115x15, x15, 135x10, x8
    Side-Lateral Raises ss w/ Rear Delt Flys
    25x12/20x15, 25x12/25x12, 25x12/25x8/4 (rest pause to finish)

    Feeling strong as an ox last couple workouts. Lots of carbs & cals and some sleep no doubt helped, but I mean I've really had to hold back today & yesterday on the squatting - it's feeling SO light I want to do extra work. I squat the 365 beltless tonight, way below parallel, like it was cake. Could have easily carried the 410 into the hole even after the slow descent, but just trying to stick with the program (I add 10lbs every wk & 5 wks to go). Speed pulls & bench felt lighter & faster too.
    have you noticed strength gains you could attribute to mass fx black?

    my endurance and time between sets are improved, but haven't noticed any improved strength i could directly put on the fx black.

    My diet is aimed at a recomp. I'd say it's aimed at a cut, but cheats are so prevalent right now I'm using my diet as a way to balance this out. I'd like to lose fat but strength gain is def more important now so just not getting fatter is easy enough to work with while building my strength.


    Day 13 (200.8lbs)

    Monday was supposed to be squat & chest, but last minute found out there was a big bday dinner on the Hill in stl for a friend, so had to squat & run. 350x3 was the workset, beltless & deep no prob. Shoulder got tweaked after last wk's heavy bench so just as well I suppose; I need to heal. Pounded some spaghetti baked w/ provel, salsiccia, & cannolis before hitting bed.

    Woke at 206.8 lbs Tuesday! Off-day (gf got back from a trip to Miami & left for Chicago today, so this was our night together). Don't worry, we had our own workout pre- & post dinner - which she even paid for, btw, to sweeten the deal. Did I mention the back massage I got? Winning. Diet was aggressive to day to compensate for Monday's cheat. Fixed things right up.

    Weight back in check today, ate clean & big - lots of sirloin, brown rice, veggies, had some protein & CarbonX preworkout meal. Very ready to pull a 3RM PR on deficit dead - rest, nutrition, & mindset were all there. God had other plans, however.

    Today's Lift
    Bb Backsquat 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 275x1, 315x1, 365x1, 395x1 (all performed beltless except last, & all below parallel easy)

    Deficit Deadlift off 45 plate 135x5, 225x3, 315x3, 365x1, 405x1, 455x1, 495x1, then BOOM! (PR, still)

    BOOM! = the sound your right hamstring makes in your head when it pulls halfway thru the 2nd rep of your PR set you've been dreaming of all day midway thru your 8wk squat cycle where you squat every single day

    FML. I was so strong, STOOPID strong. Totally ready & confident for that 495x3 from a deficit - I wanted it, & am sure I'd have gotten it. First rep came up smooth & powerfully; I am certain I'd have finished the set of 3. Idk if that's good or bad. On the one hand, it's so disappointing to fail & be injured. On the other, it's great to know I really am getting stronger. Hopefully this heals up quick. Lower body is on hiatus until further notice. Time for upper body volume training I guess

    For reference, at a weight of 217lbs 3 months ago on Msten I pulled 535x1 from the floor. At 201 today I was going to pull 495x3 from a 1in deficit. I think Mass FX is making a difference in power.
