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

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.

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.

Man. If you ever doubt that things happen for a reason, there are times in your life when you'll be reminded very strongly. In the course of two days I found out my dad had a mini-stroke (guy is 70 and an amazing athlete), a guy at a D2 college wants me to come train him and then work me in to meeting their strength and conditioning coaches, and 2 hot ass girls from the soccer team at my uni want me to strength train them . I literally have no clue when i'll find the time for all this nonsense but damn, life finds a way to keep you on your toes.
Not going to update with a workout. The past few have been good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Hips have been taking a major beating from sumo squats so i'm going to go back to conventional for a while. When I can't even go in to a crouched position... something needs to change. Otherwise i'm feeling strong, feeling full, and have a pretty decent increase in mood/aggression.

Congratulations on the good things happening in your life and my heart goes out to you regarding your father. I am going through issues with my fathers health right now too.

Appreciate the support and kind words fellas. Something that a lot of people just won't understand how total strangers can be close and the bond that lifters share. Things are going well with dad, and it's increased my motivation both in lifting and in school. Had a pretty great workout yesterday, a bit out of the ordinary but wanted to work on some movements I rarely do. If i'm going to be doing some strength and conditioning work I need to refresh my Olympic lift form hehe. Didn't weigh myself, but body comp is holding steady.
No real weights tracked, but here's the rough overview.
Clean and Press
5 sets, 6-8 reps, 135+ lbs
Clean and front squat
4 sets, 3-5 reps, 135+ lbs
Bent Over Barbell Row 90 degree strict form
10 x 135, 10 x 155, 10 x 175, 8 x 185
wide grip, 4 sets, reps to failure
Superset Close Grip Bench + Hammer DB Curl
4 sets, 10 reps each
1 arm swing, 25lbs, 4 sets, 10 reps each arm
15 minutes incline treadmill 3.7 pace
