MANing up for a Recomp
- 12-23-2013, 10:21 PM
Hopefully I'll be updating tomorrow with a nice leg work out, including some heavy hams, and then I'll be fasting for 24ish before Christmas dinner and probably 24 after. Making sure that I take some Slin Sane and agmatine pre-Christmas dinner.

My legs hadn't felt that strong since before the accident. Was getting considerably lower than parallel and at least a couple of reps each set were "hams to heels", which is as low as my body will allow me to mechanically go. I had less than an hour to lift by the time I got there though unfortunately. The rack pulls felt good. My hams were dead after hitting them with back last week, so I figured I'd try out some stiff legs with it, and for the first time in a while I was really feeling it. Off all day on Thursday, so I should be back in the gym and killin' it. Hopefully with my gf and/or a friend.
Tomorrow there will be feasting and GDA+agmatine dosed prior to eating. lol
An early Merry Christmas to everyone. Enjoy some good food and family time tomorrow!

Felt pretty good and strong throughout the work out. Had to keep messing around to waste some time at the start to get to the rack because of some kids that ended up standing in near the power and squat racks for nearly an hour talking. Finally I got the power rack and was able to do some rack pulls. I was hoping for a little more, but with the lighter weights and squeezing I'd started developing a decent pump, especially in my forearms and upper back. Work out got cut a little short, but overall I was pretty satisfied.
Today I took my last two caps of Nolvadren XT. At some point hopefully tomorrow, if I can find time around working, I'll update with some final thoughts and I've already got some final progress pics that I will post.

All in all I was extremely satisfied in my progress over the span of the log. I'd ran Nolvadren XT + PR-XT last fall at the beginning of my last real bulking phase, but this time around with the incorporation of the Forskolin 95 and the Na Daa I must say I was liking a lot more. Originally PR-XT was supposed to contain Daa in the formula, but with all the RK drama that was going on MAN decided to leave it out. The forskolin also would have been an nice addition to the formula, but the 95% forskolin wasn't even around at that point I believe so it was obviously not an option. lol
I think my favorite part of this log was the PR-XT. I felt really lean, hard and strong, throughout the entire PR-XT run. The Na Daa, Forskolin and Nolvadren all were still being utilized daily after the second bottle of PR-XT was out, but I felt as though after the PR-XT was tapped out that my gains had slowed down some. Whenever I run PR-XT/Nolvadren XT from now on Na Daa will definitely be incorporated though.
Ending out the log I'd only lost 3lbs, but I had undeniable changes in body composition and strength. My waist was down 2.5", and that wasn't even start to finish because it didn't occur to me to take a waist measurement until 1-2 weeks into the log. There was only one point 2-3 weeks in where I made any significant changes in my diet (cut down fat intake), and I did almost no cardio during the log outside of 5mins before some work outs to get the blood flowing. Other than the warm ups I'd only done cardio maybe 4-5 times total. At the end of the log during week 9 I also cut out the Kroger Carb Master yogurt I was eating, which is about 90kcals. All in all very little caloric changes, along with very little cardio, so diet and exercise alone can't be the sole cause of my body composition changes. Strength had also went up even though I'd lost some weight and made no real changes to my work outs. I got just what I wanted to out of this stack, but it was even more than I would have originally anticipated.

Can't argue with progress pics. PR-XT is an awesome supplement. And Forskolin is extremely effective at improving LBM. You had a good run with this stack. Dietary discipline played a vital role as well.
Good job brother.

Awesome recomp! Supps help but diet and desire in the gym are the most important. True MAN right there!
