EvoMuse Myo-Synergy Log

  1. EvoMuse Myo-Synergy Log


    Shout out to the EvoMuse crew for giving me a chance to log MyoSynergy.


    Background

    Been awhile since I have done a supplement log. Interesting how things have changed since my last one. For the past year I have been training exclusively with Powerlifting performance in mind. That will continue with this log. Been lifting forever.

    Lifting
    Been working with Mike T of Reactive Training Systems for roughly the past year. Absolutely love the training (and results I have gotten). He does my programming so I don't have to think about training, I just do it. 4 days per week I hit my main workouts and up to 2 days per week I add extra Core, Back, and Conditioning work. For more info check my current training log: Squats on Squats on Squats. Journey to 500lbs!

    Diet
    I don't really "count" calories anymore. I have done that for so long though that I can pretty much ballpark the amounts I am at. If I need to lose weight I usually just eat a bit less each day (usually just lower carb sources a tad) and if I need to gain I just eat more. Roughly 3-4 meals per day at high carbohydrate, moderate protein (roughly 1g per pound of bodyweight), and moderate fat (roughly .5g per bodyweight). Bulk of my diet is in the form of unprocessed foods, but I don't avoid anything. If I want something I eat it (in moderation).

    Supplements
    This log will fully "kick-off" next week after I compete this weekend in a Powerlifting competition. Usually after competition I decrease my supplement usage a bit, so this is the perfect time to give MyoSynergy a true test. Everything else that will be used has been used extensively to eliminate any new factors.

    MyoSynergy: Full Dosage 1hr Pre-workout on Training-days and upon waking on Off-days

    Will update when I decide what I plan to do for pre-workout.
    May go stim-free for a bit (High Volume?) or use the last bit of my Enhanced stash (RIP).

    Staples
    Gut Health: 1 cap daily
    CL Oximega: 4 caps daily (only on days I don't eat fish..have been eating a ton of salmon lately so haven't been supplementing Omega-3s a lot)
    Creatine Monohydrate: 3g Training-days Only
    CL White Pump: 1 scoop Daily (Been using Agmatine and TMG for sometime recently, added White Pump for the simplicity of dosing both these daily)
    Amino IV: 2 scoops Intra-workout

    So nothing crazy at all.

    Goals:


    Honestly I'd like to increase strength levels and recomp (like always..). It is summer so I want to stay as lean as I am maybe even get a bit more lean.

    Stats:

    Little guy status....5'8, ~165lbs
    Will update with 1rms after my meet Saturday.

    Thoughts and Expectations:

    Gonna be honest (duhhh) but not sure what I expect with this. While I am a big fan of Forskolin, HICA, Astragalus M., I do not know what to expect from the Epicatechin (probably what most are interested in seeing feedback relating). EvoMuse hasn't made any crazy claims, but we will see how this goes.

    Considering my goals I will be judging MyoSynergy's effects on:
    Strength: Based on my training I gauge e1rm for all lifts each session (with solid accuracy), so I can see how it boosts my strength from week to week. Ideally we will see how it helps on the competition lifts.
    Endurance: My workouts are auto-regulated, so increases in work capacity are pretty easy to see. More work capacity would be a very nice benefit.
    Recovery: I track my recovery via TRAC. When using certain products I do notice some trends in my recovery (not just subjective "I feel better", but actual data), so I'll be able to see if there are any trends over this month.
    Maybe some other stuff, but theses will be mainly what I will be looking at.

    Ok so that should be it for now. Log will really start on this upcoming Monday when my new training cycle starts.

  13. Thanks for all joining in...I ran out of reps trying to get to everyone.


    Note I did start taking a full dose of MyoSynergy yesterday and today upon waking. Figured why not. Today will be spent chilling, cooking and packing food for the meet tomorrow, and a bit of visualization of my lifts.

  30. Week 1 Day 1- April 28:


    Squat w/Belt Work up to x5 @9 0 Down Set
    2ct Pause Bench Work up to x3 @9 0 Down Set


    Squats w/Belt:
    Warm Up- Bar x 10, 60kg x 5, 100kg x 5, 135kg x 5
    150kg x 5 @7.5
    160kg x 5 @8.5

    Down a little bit from usual, but about the normal drop off I see on Monday's after competing. Hip felt fine so that was a big positive.



    2ct Pause Press:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 5, 80kg x 3
    90kg x 3 @8
    95kg x 3 @9

    Same as squats. Just a little down from usual.



    I did feel very tired all day Monday. Just felt drained.



    Week 1 Day 2- April 29:


    Deadlift w/Belt Work up to x5 @9 0 Down Set
    Bench Touch and Go Work up to x7 @10 0 Down Set
    Front Squat Work up to x 6 @9 0 Down Set

    Deadlift w/Belt:
    Warm Up- 60kg x 5, 110kg x 5
    150kg x 5 @7
    160kg x 5 @8
    170kg x 5 @8.5

    Again, down a little, but overall felt better than yesterday. Surprised sets of 5 on Deadlifts wasn't absolute death.



    Bench Touch and Go:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 7,
    80kg x 7 @7.5
    85kg x 7 @8.5
    90kg x 7 @10

    Front Squat:
    60kg x 6
    80kg x 6 @7
    90kg x 6 @8
    95kg x 6 @8.5



    Felt better today compared to yesterday. Still tired, but I am not dragging and no aches or pains.

  31. Week 1 Day GPP1- April 30th

    Back to my usual GPP work on Wednesdays. Still feeling a bit sick (head cold), but no issues training wise.

    Warm Up
    then
    10-Minutes Max Reps for Meadows Rows
    then
    10-Minutes Max Reps for Barbell Ab Rollouts
    then
    Cosgrove Complex for time
    then
    15 minutes mobility work

    Felt really good overall. I hit more reps then I had last time I hit this and finished the complex faster as well. Possible increases in Endurance from MyoSynergy already?



    Week 1 Day 3- May 1:

    Competition Bench Work up to x5 @9 0 Down Sets
    2ct Pause Squat Work up to x3 @9 0 Down Sets
    Close Grip Incline Press Work up to x6 @9 0 Down Sets


    Comp Bench:
    Warm Up- Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 5
    80kg x 5 @7
    85kg x 5 @8
    90kg x 5 @9

    2ct Pause Squats:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 60kg x 5, 100kg x 5, 120kg x 5
    130kg x 3 @7
    140kg x 3 @8
    150kg x 3 @9

    Starting to feel a bit back to normal. These felt good. Knees swam a bit on the last set, but I felt stronger on these than I had in a long time.



    Close Grip Incline Press:
    Warm Up: 40 x 10, 50 x 6
    60kg x 6 @7
    65kg x 6 @8
    70kg x 6 @8.5

    Head is super congested, but I was able to lift no issues. Everything felt better than last time and I seem to be getting closer to hitting my stride again. Sumos on tap for tomorrow! This could get interesting...

    Supplement Notes:
    -I didn't think I'd have much to update on this soon, but I have noticed a couple things (but more time will tell if they are related to MyoSynergy or not).
    -DOMS is up. I am low stress/volume with my training this week, yet I am pretty sore all over. Traps and triceps are two areas I don't note a ton of DOMS usually, but I am feeling it pretty strong today.
    -Endurance appears to be up. During my GPP session yesterday I crushed my old rep PR and finished my complex with ease. Also, PRd on incline close grip today (still really weak there ). So at the very least I am recovering quickly from my competition already.

  32. Nice pauses!

    I should have mentioned the DOMS as well. Normally don't get DOMS from training my back since it's high frequency, but I had it the day after the heavy rowing.

    Ya its kind of weird right now. I don't usually get much anymore and my volume is really low AND I am not even at full strength. I wonder what next week will be like.....I have 303 Tempo Squats sometime next week so if this keeps up I might not be able to walk after those.

  34. I have it significantly today in my chest. This is a really promising effect.

    My chest is also still "inflated" from last nights workout.

  35. Not really sure how to bring this up, but since both of you are here....can you keep an eye on any positive changes in your...manhood?

    I don't want to taint (see what I did there?) the feedback by suggesting anything, but let me know when playtime comes around with your partner if you notice anything different.
