  1. ArA/Glycophase/Anabeta Log


    Hello everyone. I am logging my run of ArA with some other goodies. I am doing the Madcow 5x5 Workout Program. I am mainly training for strength gains. I workout with an intermittent fasting style because of time constraints and convenience. This is probably the heaviest stack I've ever run.

    My Stats:
    5'11.5
    Starting Weight: 195 lbs
    Week 6 Weigh In: 198 lbs
    Week 12 Weigh In: 204 lbs

    Pre-workout:
    ArA (1.5g)
    SNS ALCAR (2g)
    Scivation Xtend (1 scoop)

    Other Supplements:
    iForce Hemavol (Weeks 1-12. Ran out on Week 12)
    Creatine (5g) on Workout Days
    SNS Glycophase
    PES Anabeta

    I have discontinued my Fish Oil and Multivitamin (it has Glucomasine in it).

    Week 1-7 (ArA only)
    ------------------------
    +45 lbs Deadlift, +15 lbs Bench Press, +30 lbs Barbell Row, +15 lbs Squat, +15 lbs Overhead Press

    Weeks 8-12 (ArA + Anabeta)
    ------------------------
    +20 lbs Deadlift, +10 lbs Squat, +10 lbs Bench Press, +5 lbs Overhead Press, +10 Barbell Row

    Overall Gains (Weeks 1-12)
    -------------------------
    +65 lbs Deadlift, +25 lbs Bench Press, +40 lbs Barbell Row, +25 lbs Squat, +20 Overhead Press

    Over a 12 week span, I felt these were good results. I gained a bit of weight toward the end probably due to my monster carb cravings, but strength was definitely up there. I had some inconveniences/mishaps along the way, but in the end, I really like this stack and definitely recommend it to anyone who wants size or strength.


  2. Hit an extra 5 lbs on all of my lifts so far. Small PR's, but I guess I'm reacting to ArA pretty quickly.

  3. when did you first start this log? im following. Im using ArA ( X Gels) with Anabeta and Endosurge Turbo. Got my log going here on AM as well.

  4. I started last Sunday (Dec 1). Been dosing 1.5g ArA the entire time from the start. Tempted to up it to 2g cause right now, I can sort of handle the DOMS I've been getting and my joints are okay.

  5. Going to up the dose next week to 2g just to test it out.

    Also, do X-Gels cause a little bit of hunger (more appetite)? Seems like I can eat more lately.

    Man I've been getting stomach cramps because of hunger the past few days

  7. Yeah I just ate a monster meal a few minutes ago. This stuff is making me hungry, haha.

  8. Starting Week 3. 2 scoops of Hemavol and 1.75g ArA starts today. I might change the dosing back down if it's too much

  9. Good workout today. Adding an extra .25g of ArA and an extra scoop of Hemavol makes the pumps insane. I'm not really in it for the pump, but more to increase the effectiveness of the stack. I think I can hit a PR on my squats/bench press/barbell rows (or at least some of them) for sure next workout.

  10. I'm running at 1g but may go up to 1.25 and see what happens from there

    Yeah. It seems that Week 3 seems to be the week this stuff really kicks in.

  13. Today was Deadlift/OHP day. OHP still remains the same, and a 10lb PR on my Deadlift. Although my deadlift has always been relatively weak compared to what it should be. Now we'll see this Friday if I hit any new PR's on my other lifts.

  14. Got a couple of PR's today and updated my original post. This stuff is awesome. I might get another two bottles and make this a 16 week run.

  15. nice log .. i havent noticed too much on my appetite increase, but ill keep an eye on it .. starting my xgels sunday

  16. My appetite started increasing the more I've been on it. The great thing is that even though I'm eating more I don't seem to be gaining fat. I'm maintaining weight and gaining strength.

  19. Gotta say, yesterday's set of benches/rows felt pretty light to me but I'm still being on the safe side and slowly doing +5 lbs. I only felt confident to do more weight on my Dead Lift because my Dead Lift #'s have always sucked. Hopefully I keep setting new PR's this week. This stuff feels pretty good.

  20. Another good workout today. Today was Squat/Bench/Pendlay Row day. Managed to do last week's PR's with minimal breaks in between (2-3 mins as opposed to 4-5 mins). This stuff seems to have really boosted my self confidence. I think this Weds/Friday will lead to more PR's

    In for this!

    Hoping to get my OHP PR this week. My shoulders sorta suck, haha.

  23. Well today sucks. I forgot that the gym doesn't open until later and closes early so I can't go to the gym today. Oh boy. Guess the deadlifts/OHP will have to wait until another day/week. Hoping to hit more Squat/Bench Press/Barbell Row PR's this Thursday though.

    Some additional recovery and relaxation may potentiate those lifts next session anyways man.

    Thats always a pain, we had to change up our schedule and do an AM lift as ours closed early today. It was a mad house in there, absolutely packed with everybody trying to get their workout in! Happy Holidays guys!

  26. I always lift at around 5 am because thats what my schedule permits. The gym's hours today were from 8am to 2 pm. My full time job starts me at 8 and ends at 4:30....so there was no way for me to do anything today. Oh well. I'll be sure to smash Thursday's workout.

    We have a very similar schedule. I'm usually up and out the door by 5AM. Fasted lifts >

  28. Man I wish I could train that early. I have to have calories in me before I go or I feel so weak

    I'm the opposite. Carbs make me feel lazy.
