    Ya and unfortunately I woke up with some more shoulder pain and pain in the elbow of said shoulder. Shall see what happens today, going to hop on some cissus immediately. As I drink all my water out of a 20oz shaker bottle I've made it easy to track fluids. I just count how many times I re-fill it

    Currently my focus is legs and back. I deadlift 2-3x a week, squat 2x a week, and hit back pretty hard with supersets and just overall high volume work. You'll notice things like arms I rarely isolate.

    Thanks man, seemed like a cool log to run and an interesting product to do it with. Needless to say i'm pretty surprised at the 4lb drop in weight. I actually thought I would maintain the first week as the Alpha One would offset the caloric deficit and cardio. Really interested to see what happens this second week.

    Here's yesterday's workout

    Bodyweight Squats
    50

    Sumo Deadlift
    8 x 265, 6 x 395, 5 x 315, 2 x 325, 2 x 335, 2 x 345, 355 fail, 355 fail

    Leg Press
    4 sets, 8-12 reps (don't keep track really just go as heavy as I can. typically 5-7 plates at this point)

    Incline BB Press
    12 x 135, 12 x 155, 10 x 175, 10 x 185

    DB side lat raise superset Bent over rear lat raise
    4 sets, 8-10 reps

    Kettelbell swings superset Kettelbell clean and press
    4 sets, 8-10 reps each arm

    Thoughts:
    Was not happy failing twice on 355lbs sumo but whatever. I rarely do sumo DL but I thought i'd be able to go heavier. Overall, I have seen my strength take a small spike upwards which I'll attribute to the Alpha One. It's definitely not diet based haha. Felt pretty good after spending the day before wondering if something was wrong, I was literally in that much pain. One weird thing going on is that since 2 days ago I've been having body odor issues, specifically in arm pits. Now, this is something I've never had an issue with. But as of now if I perspire my body odor is horrendous. I can't say whether this is Alpha One related as correlation does not always equal causation, but I don't know what else it would be since I keep most things in my life the same.

    Not the best pics in the world but snapped these after the workout, no real pump here. Potato camera and shaky hands but whatever. Currently sitting at 197.2 which is around another pound down. To me I've noticed the stomach leaning out the most with some more upper abdominal definition. But fullness is still holding which is awesome.

    Chit has been crazy around here, practically no time to do anything online. I'll update with yesterday's workout and a couple thoughts, then off to take care of business. School starts in a couple days, work has me working 6 days a week, friends trying to get me to drink (i'm resisting ), such is life haha.

    Bent Over BB Row (strict form, 90 degree)
    12 x 135, 7 x 155, 6 x 175, 5 x 185, 5 x 195, 5 x 195

    Lat Pulldown superset (wide grip + narrow underhand grip)
    4 sets each, 10-12 reps each grip

    Seated Military DB Press
    8 x 70, 6 x 75, 6 x 80, 6 x 85, 6 x 90

    Leaning cable side raise
    4 sets, 10-12 reps, 20lbs or less. focus on form, muscle connection

    Dips + Hanging Leg Raise
    superset, 10-12 reps each

    Ab Roller + pushups
    Max reps on roller, 10-15 reps pushups, 4 sets

    No cardio yesterday as I was crunched on time. I weighed in at 199.1 and I was even short on water by about 60oz at that point. Was a weird day. I attribute the weight gain to a reefed I had the day before where I was hurting so I took in a bit more P/CHO/F, especially carbs haha. The body needed it, and I woke up feeling good and had a great workout.
    Thoughts on Alpha One - still having some odor issues, acne has definitely increased in the past 3-4 days, but on the plus side i'm feeling stronger as well as looking nice and lean in my core and my arms seemed to have lost a tick of fat. Bicep, both flexed and unflexed, is looking more defined.

    I know a lot of guys are getting back into school.. I'm liking the BB bent rows at 195x5 good work there.. If I remember correctly your close to the weight you started, if so sounds like a nice recomp going on here..

    Ya it's been a pain in the ass as i'm in a whole new school and area of CA. Trying to learn best way to get there, buying a road bike to commute, getting books and rail pass, etc etc etc. Not to mention working 5-6 8 hour shifts a week.

    I love bb rows, and I can turn it in to a pendalay row on the last rep or 2 to get them out. As far as weight goes i'm surprised at where i'm at now considering the noticeable increase in leanness. So far it's been a perfect recomp.

    Completely destroyed myself lifting yesterday. Work was so chitty. I woke up feeling like I got hit by a truck. Going to re-feed again today and see if i'll lift at all. Upperbody seems good to go but I don't want to compound any issues I may have with recovery.

    Single Leg Squat
    3 x 10 (each leg)

    Front Squat
    10 x 135, 8 x 185, 3 x 225, 2 x 235, 2 x 235, 3 x 225, 6 x 205

    Sumo Deadlift
    10 x 225, 10 x 245, 8 x 285, 8 x 295, 8 x 305, 6 x 315

    Arm superset
    4 x 12

    Seated Leg Extension (quad)
    4 x 12-15

    Superset of Kettelbell swings, lying leg raises, and pushups

    No cardio needed, I was already pretty low on cals and that workout just exhausted me. Was pretty happy with strength on my squat and deadlift. Can definitely notice just "feeling" stronger when I do compound lifts. I probably went a bit too hard considering the type of split I do, but I was feeling good and just kept pushing. Weighed in at 198.7 which is what I thought I would, the weight gain the other day was from the re-feed just as I thought.

    Absolutely no need for cardio after that workout.. I love the way this cycle is going for you, exactly the way I would run it for my personal goals...

    Your front squats are strong Rhadam. Hopefully after your re-feed the exhuastion will disappear. As for the cardio, on days you run supersets like that I don't see the need. Especially if your in a deficit with calories + your calorie expenditure. Log looks great so far!

    Sorry for a bit of a gap in the posts, had 2 setbacks both from work. Strained a muscle in my core from lifting a keg, I was exhausted from my workout earlier in the day and just lifted it poorly. Then I bruised my right quad somehow and was limping for 2 days. I still got in some upperbody work but nothing worth posting about. Kept cals kind of high for the past couple days I really needed it. Today's workout was fantastic, felt great to be back 100%. Hit a nice Row PR and all-around high intensity lifting.

    As for body comp and such, weighed in at 199.0 today, looking lean however stomach holding some bloat from my diet the past couple days. Been on the go so much I had to resort to some different foods to hit macros lol. Carbs a bit higher than normal. No sides or anything from Alpha-90, feeling good. No lethargy, just some nice consistent strength increases.

    Bent-over BB Row
    8 x 135, 6 x 185, 6 x 195, 5 x 205, 5 x 215, 5 x 225 (PR)

    Superset wide grip and reverse close grip lat pulldown
    4 sets, 8-10 reps each grip

    Arnold DB Press
    4 sets, 10-12 reps, 35lb DBs

    Close Grip Bench
    10 x 135, 10 x 145, 9 x 155, 8 x 145

    Kettelbell Swings superset with Kettelbell clean and press
    4 sets, 8 reps each arm (16 reps per arm per 1 set)

    Finished off with some leg raises until stomach started cramping and the usual pushups.

    Dang son! Look at them rows!

    So you're getting some strength Increases with the alpha 90 (this is obvious, look at them rows!) what about appetite? And muscle fullness?

    Ya I kind of surprised myself, I've pulled 225 once but it was sloppy. Yesterday I pulled 4 times pretty good form kept the 90 degree angle and pendalayed the last rep. One of those things where guys in the gym stopped to look lol.

    So appetite has been pretty huge for me, I keep forgetting to mention this. I've been using iForce Dexaprine as an appetite suppressant when I need it, but man there are times where I feel like gnawing off my arm. Partly due to me not having cut for a while, but definitely part of the Alpha-90 sides. I've mentioned the fullness a few times, and it's still here. Consistently surprised that i'm leaning but staying so full. I'm looking bigger than normal while losing some fat. There's really nothing better you could hope for.

    I'd like to talk for a second about why I've utilized Sumo Deads the past couple weeks, and will do so again today. I might even go for a fourth week. Whenever I come to plateaus or just road blocks in lifts (as I call them) I always try to sit down and analyze what's going on. I'm not super smart when it comes to kinesiology but I know how to do research which makes up for some base knowledge. My Deadlift has kind of stalled at about 435. Back is rounding, which is to be expected at max effort, but I started to notice some hip flexibility issues and back issues. The obvious answer here was accessory work.

    One of the best things I've ever read about deadlifting was from Dave Tate (I think) when he said don't concentrate on picking up the bar, that will cause you to activate upper back and arms which is bad. Think more of pulling the bar to you while pushing your hips in to it. Your hips and glutes are such a common forgotten element of the deadlift, and probably should be addressed by any intermediate bodybuilder who comes up to a block in their Deads. One of the easiest [implemented] fixed for these issues is to Sumo Dead for a few weeks. Sumo puts pressure on your hips and glutes to activate and pull the weight. You can also really focus on keeping proper back arch and strength, static back strength is a must for deadlifts.

    My hope is that after these 3-4 weeks of Sumo Deads I will be able to pass up 435/445 and keep going for my 500lb DL goal.

    Quick update with yesterday's workout. Super exhausting. Pushed very hard. Weighed in at 198.6.

    Sumo DL
    8 x 225, 6 x 315, 4 x 365, 3 x 375, 2 x 385, 1 x 385, 3 x 365, 10 x 225
    Incline BB Press
    10 x 135, 10 x 155, 10 x 165, 9 x 165
    Goodmornings
    4 sets, 95-105 lbs, 10 reps, strict form
    Ketelbell work (the usual)
    2 sets swings and clean and press, 10 reps each arm
    Seated Calf Raise
    4 sets, 10-14 reps

    Tried to do some abs and pushups but after 2 sets my stomach just gave out from exhaustion and dehydration. Just dripping sweat everywhere it was insane lol. Pretty happy with the Sumo progress. Took video of 365, 375, and 385 and having my expert friend check my form. Otherwise, i'm off to work. Crossing my fingers I can get through this 8 hour shift after that workout lol.

    Last couple workouts not really worth mentioning. Basically just lifted what wasn't so damn sore. Those heavy sumos and goodmornings wrecked my posterior chain. Really just been concentrating on keeping intensity up regardless of what I do. Still looking full, stomach staying lean. I'm at about 198.2 as of last night and that was fed and almost 100% of my water intake. Pretty happy with body comp right now. I can say that alpha-90 has done almost nothing for recovery, but to be honest I didn't expect it. The increases in strength and aggression in the gym have been well-worth the lack of recovery. Lifting today, no lifting tomorrow, and Monday i'm going to a friend's physique comp at Venice Beach. Should be a good time to check out some of my competition for when I get back in to shows after the new year. Have a great weekend peeps.

    Great update. Sucks the recovery aspect isn't up to par like the aggression and strength. But it is what it is.

    Sorry Rhadam! I missed your log! Catching up now but the later review says you are getting excellent strength and aggression. Yet recovery is taking longer? Funny how different compounds have different results eh?

    Keep killing it, man. Glad to see more Alpha-90 logs going up

    Busy weekend here in LA. Had to work a couple doubles, didn't lift sunday or Monday. Monday I went to a friend's competition at Muscle Beach and he took first in his class and first overall in physique. Super pumped for him, just more motivation for me to get back in to competing. Definitely happy with the run so far and it's really helped push me further towards my goals. Doing another competition after the new year is definitely in my sights.

    Weighed in today at 198.0 and that was after a hectic schedule and poor nutrition. Stomach is looking really good, and noticing even more definition in the arm areas. Biggest improvement though that I just noticed is that my chest has never looked so full. I've said a couple things about muscle fullness on Alpha-90 being significant, but I completely missed the chest "gains." I've lost a bit of bodyfat and that has improved the definition, but this is maybe the best my chest has looked in a LONG time. The after pics should really be noticeable. Got a good workout in today, hips were really stiff so I did conventional DL. Flexibility was just not there today. Combination of not lifting for 2 days and being on my feet running around the bar so much the past few days. But we make the best out of it and hit it hard regardless.

    Conventional DL
    8 x 215, 6 x 315, 4 x 365, 3 x 385, 2 x 405, 2 x 415, Fail @ 425, 1 x 405

    Incline DB Press
    10 x 80, 10 x 85, 10 x 90, 8 x 90

    Leg press
    4 sets, 5-6 plates @ 8-12 reps

    Goodmornings
    4 sets, 10-12 reps @ 105-115lbs

    Military Shoulder press machine
    4 sets, 10-12 reps

    Superset BB close grip press / DB Hammer Curl
    4 sets

    Hanging Leg Raises
    4 sets, 12-15 reps

    15 min cardio (LISS)

    Nothing better than leaning out and still looking full at the same time.. The leaning effect this is having has really surprised me nice DL #'s going to have to try 425 again before this ends..

    I was sure I had sub'd in on this but I guess not.

    Anyways, glad to see things are going good in here! Funny thing is, I'm not having any problems with recovery really. I'm drinking two 32 oz bottles of BCAAs a day though.

    Not too much to report from yesterday. Had to make it a quick gym session as body was hurting and I was semi short on time. Did more of a calisthenics workout and then some cardio. I decided i'm not going to post any pics until the final "after" pics as I don't want to ruin any sort of surprise lol. Hoping I can finish off this run strong and give a good showing of exactly what Alpha-90 has helped me do. Haven't decided what i'm doing today, been stuck on homework and catching up on some sleep.

    In other noods I'm currently talking to a football coach at my college about possibly being an assistant to their strength coach! Big news for me. Should find out Tuesday if they can bring me on. I am excite.

    So do I. It works out pretty well as the days they are in the weight room i'm free and already at school. Will be a lot of work for a few months but I love what I do and I really need to start building my resume. It's all about getting your name out and making contacts. I'd gladly have no life during this football season to get in with this team.

    Good luck with getting the gig and I am excited about the gains you seem to be making. You just about have me talked into tossing some sumos into my program.

    Caz, really a product designed for a lot of strength increase is dually designed for fat loss. Just depends on the diet. Remember that even fat cells have Androgen Receptors and highly androgenic compounds attach to those and cause them to release fat for energy. That is one of the reasons that people use Tren products during both cutting and strength phases, since it is highly androgenic. Only difference here if I am not wrong is that Alpha 90 is considered a wet compound correct? However that is easily remedied with a cleaner diet and or an AI.
