    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.

  3. 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:

    Bb Backsquat 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 275x1
    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)
    Close-grip D-handle Pulldown 140x11, x10, x8 ds 70x15

  4. yeah...i forgot to mention how well my mood has been in my log...stress seems to be managed better also considering all of the stuff i have going on....but i definately agree on improved libido and appetite...

    like george carlin once said....never go grocery shopping when you are hungry...

    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.

  10. Looking big brah. Nice nums too

    nice pumpage - as everyone else said: swole bro!

  12. 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

  13. Wuttup swole?? Strong lifts brotha. Numbers lookin real nice

    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 :-)

  15. 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.

    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

  19. 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.

    ohh..uh oh
    dammit man - play it smart, rest & recuperate fully

  21. Ouch...ice that baby down and hopefully the damage isn't too bad. Bruising will not be a good sign of course.
    Always open light. Itís not what you open with, itís what you finish with. Louie Simmons

  22. Moved red meat to my work meals protein source of choice on especially high effort days as of late - idk if it's placebo, but I really do feel stronger doing this on these days. I also try to minimize fats & put everything on clean complex carbs/fruits on these days too.

    I used to just eat carbs every meal on all lifting days - this was only making me fat. I get better results & stay leaner by keeping carbs out of certain meals but timing them right to keep satiety/strength up where/when I need it. I gain easily, muscle but especially fat. Emphasis on the fat lol. Getting smarter with my diet has made considerable differences. I'm never getting on a stage, but I don't wanna be a fatass either.

    No bruising thankfully (not yet, anyway!) & 600mg of ibuprofen has it feeling much better. Praying this is minor. Not limping anymore since the ibu kicked in, fairly comfy. We'll see how tomorrow treats me tho. Would be nice to be squatting again before mass fx is thru.

  24. Injury sucks. Pulled a pr none the less. Like az said if it bruises (deep colors) not good my friend.

  27. Great to hear you're killing it man and nice numbers. Sorry about the hammy and I hope you have a speedy recovery. I've pulled my bad and it's not fun so I hope yours is minor. Good to see you logging and this mass FX stuff sounds good. DL numbers are looking nice.

    I know you're a Natadrol guy, & before I ever lost my hormonal virginity I ran that stuff for 8wks. Seemed like it helped me get a bit stronger, but all around after only 2wks of Mass FX I can say with confidence it is leaps & bounds better than natadrol. Forget that stuff & run this for 8wks if nothing else, but this product is strictly superior. I use oral roids, & I can tell this is doing something even for me at least.
