Day 22 (199.6lbs)
Woke up this morning after only 4.5 hrs of sleep to start smashing some o/t at work. Lots of work+low sleep+mass fx means stupid hunger & accompanying weight gain, so I don't think the leanness I woke up with today will follow suit tomorrow
Gonna go hit a heavy box squat single now & go to bed for work early tomorrow as well; probably gonna save the back attack for tomorrow since I'm dead. Going to the Cards vs. Cubs game with the gal & her madre, so looking forward to a rest tomorrow evening.
Last night was busy as all get-out with work & everything, but got into the gym around 9 for the light squat today (picking up right where I left off last week) & arms - decided to switch my ancient arm routine up for an old heavy-ass 5x5 routine that shouldn't work on paper but can provide some serious muscle shock if done right. All sets performed 1 set A exercise, followed by the paired B exercise, the repeat. Arms were fried way more than usual.

No lift yesterday; woke at 4:30 for overtime work at 5:30, visited my dad after I got off around noon, & rushed home to clean up & met the gf's mom for the first time @ 3:30, so that filled the day unfortunately. And Cards lost by 1 run *smhs*. Good news is work & seeing Dad was great, awesome meal bought by the gf, her mom loved me, game was great & last night/this morning was ridiculously great. Took that gal out for bfast today. Thanks Mass FX
Gonna go hit my heavy partial negative squat & hammer some back attack out!

Day 24 (200.4 lbs)
Today got fed pretty decent, feeling really good. We layed a new tune on my vette today, and it runs harder than ever. Cleaned it up good, and enjoyed lots of cruising in the perfect weather while we dialed the tune in. Plus lots of quality time with the gf, so really had a positive attitude coming into the gym tonight. Timed Mass FX well with the late workout, so that had to help - the weight felt pretty light all night, and I was able to keep my pace up better than usual.

Day 26 (196.7lbs)
Weight has dropped last two days; haven't been this light in a year (and before any cycles, ever). Drastically leaner & more muscular at this weight now vs. a year ago, & waaaay stronger. Feels good. Weighed 198.0 yesterday morning & lighter still today, & I triple checked the scale. That being said, strength is only up - benched 275 yesterday at a sub-200lb bodyweight, and I almost tried for a double. It went up smooth, & felt like more was there. Personal best is 285 4 months ago, on cycle, weighing 217. Bet I could do the 285 now, off-cycle, while 20lbs lighter.
Score one for dedicated diet/training/supplementation, & score a big one for Mass FX - been able to steadily progress in my Smolov squat cycle without a hiccup as the loads become increasingly more serious for me, even while leaning slightly. And def no loss of muscle.

There's so much squatting in this thread idk what to do with myself! The loss of bw/bf while maintaining and/or getting stronger is great! Albeit you cleaned your diet up and stuck with it! Great progress hyde

Day 28 (198.0 lbs)
Last night's lift. Didn't plan on the heavy deadlift - had to borrow a belt for the last set even. I just missed not pulling these last 2 weeks & needed to put some weight in my hands. It's my favorite lift. Callous got ripped off during pullups so that kind of ended my back session - the deads took it out of me anyway & it was getting late. Still had a LOT of fun.

Traditional Deadlift 135x10, 225x5, 315x3x6 sets, 385x1, 455x1, 525x1*
Chinups BW x12, 10, 8, 7, 7
*525 @ 198lbs off-cycle now compared to 535 @ 217lbs around the beginning of April - almost 20 lbs lighter, no roids, & it honestly felt like 545 is there right now - this was just a training 1rm. Definitely gotten stronger, no question. It practically flew up to my knees before I had to dig in to pull thru. Gonna cycle in some heavy rackpulls next 3-4 wks & go for a 550 probably.

Final Noodz for comparison to 1st pages pre-Mass FX. No drastic changes but I'm inclined to say I'm leaner as I'm down weight but am stronger & certainly don't feel less muscular at all. This was a suprisingly potent natty product with no bad sides for me, except perhaps hunger if that's a big concern - but you gotta eat to grow, amirite??
These were from today, first day off Mass FX, no gym pump or anything - just snapped em when I got home from work.
08-16-2013, 06:36 PM
Final review should be up tomorrow. I want to lay out my thoughts so I can say exactly what I want - this product was honestly a win for me, & I want to do it justice & give it the attention it deserves.
Thanks again Athletic Xtreme!

Nice work man, your pulls are definitely getting better, you'll catch me before long if I don't get to work! haha.
