    How VOLATILE can Mountainman get? (Sponsered)


    Running a tub of Formutech's Volatile PWO in fruit punch flavor. Ingredient profile is top notch, and I'm looking forward to see what results I can get out of this run. I do need to preface with the fact that I am also logging Androfactory's Max-Bulk at the same time. Due to my extensive PWO experience I know that I will possibly need to dose at a scoop and half, but I will start at 1 scoop to assess how well the profile works for me. First dose today went down smooth. It tastes pretty good, but does have a slight after taste. Nothing gut wrenching, just a hint of an ingredient that I can't quite put my finger on yet.

    Here is a link to my Max-Bulk log as well in order to keep up with where I'm at so far for comparison:

    Mountainman gets Mountain sized w/ MAXBULK (sponsered)

    Today was supposed to be chest and traps, and even though my elbow is improving, given all super krill oil and cissus I've been taking (forgot to get more cissus while I was out today dammit) it's still not up to par. I tried pressing just the bar and that brought on an ache right away. Almost there though. So I managed a pretty good back workout with flys and raises mixed in.

    Neutral Grip Pull Ups / Incline Flys / Lateral Raises
    BW x 8 / 20s x 12 / 10s x 15
    BW x 8 / 20s x 12 / 10s x 15
    BW x 6 / 20s x 10/ 10s x 12
    BW x 5 / 20s x 10 / 10s x 12

    During the Flys I focused on bringing my hands down towards my hips during the eccentrics, and raising them in a straight line to above my chin to really focus on upper chest activation.

    WMD BB Rows / Pec Deck / DB Front Raises
    L = 135
    H = 185

    L x 8, H x 5 / *50* x 12 / 20s x 10
    H x 6, L x 6 / *50* x 10 / 20s x 10
    L x 7, H x 4 / *50* x 9 / 20s x 9
    H x 3, L x 6 / *50* x 8 / 20s x 8

    I focused very hard on not cheating during the rows, but towards the end a few cheating rows snuck there way in. And during the front raises I brought the DBs up in front of my face and pressed them together to help get a little added chest work.

    Skier Pull Downs / Slight Incline Flys / Drop Set Laterals
    55 x 10 / 20s x 10 / 20s x 5, 10s x 6
    55 x 10 / 20s x 9 / 20s x 4, 10s x 6
    55 x 10 / 20s x 8 / 20s x 4, 10s x 5

    Underhand Pull Downs / Flat Bench Flys / Drop Set: Front Raises to Horseshoe Front Raises
    *100* x 12 / 20s x 9 / 20s x 4, 10s x 8
    *100* x 11 / 20s x 9 / 20s x 4, 10s x 7
    *100* x 10 / 20s x 8 / 20s x 3, 10s x 6

    My elbow is starting to flare up so that tells me time to call it a day, unfortunately. I have way more gas in the tank too. I had my first dose of Volatile for PWO, so that combined with the Max-Bulk have really jumped up my endurance. I feel like I could go for another hour minimum. Vascularity and pump level are better than before as well. I think the combo is having a good synergy effect here also. Good stuff.

    Yeah, came out of nowhere a few weeks ago. Wasn't bad, then it got to the point (which is currently) where I couldn't do any pressing movements. It's getting better though, hence all the Flys and delt raises.

    I get the same thing doing any bicep work with a bar instead of db. I always use dbs now and haven't had an issue since!

    This guy just can't seem to catch a break. Petting my dog yesterday when he jumped up to bark at a deer in our yard. When he jumped up he jammed my finger and now I have "mallet" finger.

    Hard to tell from the picture but I can't completely straighten my index finger. Doesn't hurt too much, just really friggin annoying. Did the same thing to my ring finger this past summer during a tournament while blocking. I hate picking my nose with my left hand.

    Still a tad sore from my last leg day, and normally my split would have been hamstrings and calves, but I felt so good about my last leg routine that I was fired up to do it again.

    I took my dose of Volatile and one that beta alanine flush really hit I felt the major itch to throw some weights around. I haven't had beta alanine in a PWO in months so that flush is a great indicator of when it's time to light the fuse.

    WMD Squats and Seated Smith Machine Calf Raises
    Squats
    Heavy = 185
    Light = 135

    Seated Calf Raises
    Heavy = 185
    Light = 135

    Seated SM Calf Raises / Squats
    L x 15, H x 10 / L x 10, H x 6
    H x 12, L x 12 / H x 6, L x 8
    L x 12, H x 10 / L x 8, H x 5
    H x 10, L x 10 / H x 4, L x 7

    Started to get major back pumps during squats so I had switch out to front squats to finish my wave sets.

    Standing SM Calf Raises / Front Squats

    Calf Raises
    H = 205
    L = 135

    Front Squats
    H = 145
    L = 95

    L x 12, H x 8 / L x 8, H x 5
    H x 10, L x 10 / H x 4, L x 6

    I tried using lifting straps on the front squats like I read about in the article from last week or the week before, but they just made the lift harder so I ditched them for my normal crossed arm grip. My back felt better but it's always a touch disheartening because of the lighter weights.

    Leg Extensions / Machine Leg Press Calf Raises, No rest
    *50* x 15 / *130* x 15
    *50* x 12 / *130* x 12
    *50* x 10 / *130* x 12

    Like the song says "Burn MF, Burn". These sets burn like crazy, but I love the punishment I'm putting my legs through.

    Machine Leg Press / Standing SM Machine Calf Raises, w/ to w/o weight
    *160* x 15 / 135 x 8 TI, 6 TO - BW x 10
    *170* x 15 / 135 x 8 TO, 6 TI - BW x 9
    *180* x 12 / 135 x 7 TI, 5 TO - BW x 8

    The leg presses burned pretty good, but the calf raises were excruciating. My calves were pumped beyond belief. I thought they were pumped last workout but this time around the pump was almost unbearable.

    The amount of endurance Volatile is affording me is awesome. And the pumps (as previously mentioned) are outstanding. Unfortunately it's late and I have to cut my workout short in order to get my nutrition in before bed time. But not before I squeezed out 2 sets of jumping squats with 25 lb. plates. Supposed to be upper body tomorrow so we'll see how the elbow feels so I can start annihilating more body parts.

    Nice leg day. I mix volatile with endurance BCAA for a extra boost on leg day. Pushing those dead cleans it helps

    Elbow is feeling pretty good today so I think I'll try some pressing tonight. Not too heavy though.

    I took a little longer on warm ups to make sure circulation is at its maximum for my elbow.

    DB Flat Bench Press / TRX Elbows Out Horizontal Pull Ups / Hanging Leg Raises
    45s x 15 / BW x 10 / 12
    55s x 13 / BW x 10 / 12
    65s x 12 / BW x 8 / 10
    65s x 12 / BW x 8 / 10

    Maxed or my dumbells with the standard plates I have. Time to purchase more 10# plates. With part of my tax return maybe?
    And I ran from one exercise to the next and tried to keep my heart rate up. I was huffing and puffing by the end of each super set.

    TRX Push Ups / DB Overhand Bent Over Rows/ Decline Crunches
    BW x 10 / 65s x 10 / BW x 8
    BW x 10 / 65s x 10 / BW x 8
    BW x 8 / 65s x 10 / BW x 7
    BW x 7 / 65s x 10 / BW x 6

    Those TRX push ups are a killer, especially when I focused on making sure my hands touched at the peak of the concentric. And I very rarely do ab work so I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a sore tummy tomorrow. But after what the wifey said you better believe I'm going to start working them.

    Smith Machine Incline Press / Machine Overhand Rows
    115 x 15 / *110* x 12, No rest
    115 x 12 / *110* x 10
    Rest 1 minute
    115 x 12 / *110* x 10, No rest
    115 x 10 / *110* x 8

    My chest and traps are pumped hard core. The Volatile is making for insane pumps, and once again my endurance is still there and I want to do more but it's late and I need to get in my nutrition before bed.

    It's SO expensive. But there's this guy that lists things on his Web site, I think his name is Craig, he usually has some good equipment deals. I'm looking at a power rack that some guy is selling for $200 because he's moving. It's in great condition.

    Craig has some good lists.

    That's a really good deal on a power rack.

    Yeah it is, and if I wait until my wife leaves for training I won't catch a rash of sh!t for spending the money to buy it.

    Can't go wrong. Usually a good deal, and around here No one actually uses it.

    I've taken advantage of many deals on Craig's list. Lots of times the seller will throw in other equipment as well.
