    I'll also be using various stims, Accelerant, B-Stim by Ronnie Coleman is another I actually like, Ive got too many stims on hand to account for... usually 1 serving or half a serving w coffee will start my day/wake me up whether cutting, bulking, recomping. I just need a slight jolt to get going. PreWO will either be using Katana of SuperPump 3.0 depending on the day and what I'm in the mood for, I dont work out til night, so Im never over stimmed or taking stims too close to one another.

    My training will likely kind of blow peoples minds lol, my training partner puts me through a diff theme of the week every week. Some weeks we train like powerlifters, some weeks its ultra high reps, some are drop sets, some negatives, etc. I never know what the next theme will be. This might sound silly, but I went from 215 to 235 in one yr following this routine while actually appearing to be slightly leaner both in my mind and I've heard that from a handful of gym buddies. I dont do calipers, etc. I have no intention of being a bodybuilder or physique athlete of any kind... I just love training and staying fit.

    Cardio is a 45 minute walk daily. 1 or 2x a week I usually dont feel like doing it, so I dont lol.

    This week is a pretty unusual week, 4 sets of each movement... first set 5 RM, second set 50RM, 3rd 5 RM, 4th 50RM... again, sounds silly but delivered insane pumps and soreness, especially in the lats which notorious grow for many with lower weight and focus on contraction instead of pulling w arms.

    I'll throw some pics up in the next post, and post my first workout, which was on Tuesday. Wed and either Sat or Sun (depending on my schedule) are my two off days each week. Occasionally, my training partner (who essentially is my trainer) has us splitting up quads and hams so we go both Sat and Sun.

    I have just a tad more bodyfat than I'm accustomed to. A spare tire is developing a bit so I'm confident with this stack I'll be able to actually trim up just a bit while adding some mass. I'd like to go from 235 to 240 while on this stack while actually appearing slightly leaner in the midsection. I think this goal is entirely possible.

    Day 2 was an arm day that strayed from the theme of the week. My buddy had to leave the state on a whim as he recently took an oil job that sometimes has him heading to rigs in neighboring states.

    I went in and was feeling a bit lethargic and cramped up training solo, and about two sets in a friend of mine who is prepping for his second physique show asked if I wanted to partner up for the day as he was pretty drained and needed motivation (he's three weeks out). The kid looks great, I think he's 20 and sitting at 155 he's the biggest 155 I've ever seen. He hung with me through the volume (not the weights as I have 80lbs on him) and even put me through his abs and cardio session after I put him through my arm day. Really good and long workout:

    DB curls superset standing unilateral DB overhead tricep extension
    -pyramid up to 60s on curls and 40s on extensions

    Hammer Strength Preacher Curls
    2 plates x 4 sets of 8-12

    Tricep Pushdown
    200lbs x 4 sets of 20

    BB curls
    85 x 4 sets of 12

    Skullcrushers
    worked up to 100lbs x 12

    Seated Tricep Extensions Machine superset Reverse Grip BB Curls
    110 to failure 50 to failure 4 sets

    Finished w rope crunches, rope oblique crunches and leg raises, then 15 min elliptical

    All in all a very good workout. Good change of pace and always good training with a different guy than usual, especially a competitive athlete willing to learn from you and also teach you along the way. I'm lucky to have a large group of ego free lifters, many who compete, and a few of us who dont who all respect one another and lend our feedback, tips and encouragement to one another.

    So your preworkout meal consists of eating 20 capsules, huh? Lol

    Btw, the 4 for $99 deal I received in my email today is very tempting...first thing that came to my mind when I saw your supplement protocol!

    Day 5, Legs


    Yesterday (Sunday) hit legs HARD

    I didnt have the energy to make it through 50 reps, pump was brutal as is. That said, here was the workout.

    Hack Squat

    1 plate x 2 sets of 12 warm up
    2 plates x 8
    3 plates x 4
    4 plates x 4
    4 plates x 4
    3 plates x 8
    2 plates x 12
    1 plate x 20

    Squats

    warmed up to 4 sets of 5 with 315. This was tough as my legs were already quite exhausted and pumped from the hacks.

    Seated Hamstring Curls 4 sets high reps

    Leg Extensions 5 sets high reps

    Notes

    DAMN SORE TODAY.

    Only valid for 48 hours!

    Haha, I take A LOT of capsules throughout the day. When I throw in Beverly Mass Aminos I've gotta be over 50 per day.

    I'm on my 1st week of Myo. Doms are much more noticeable. I don't suffer from DOMS much but I'd say after 5 days they were felt and have been after each training session so far.

    Day 6 Heavy Chest


    Did 45 min treadmill (low intensity) at home before eating a big meal and heading into the gym

    Incline Bench
    -warmed up to 275x5
    315x3
    225x15 (PR)
    135x12 pause reps

    Incline Hammer Strength Press
    worked up to 3 plates and 35 per side for 4 reps
    worked my way down w 2 sets of 5 at 3 plates
    repped 12 w 2 plates

    Decline Hammer Strength Press
    worked up to 4/side
    3/sidex10
    2/side x 2 sets of 20

    Cable Crossovers 4 sets of 18

    Pec Dec 4 sets of 15

    Stuck around and hit 4 sets seated calves, 4 sets standing calves and 4 sets traps bc today I'll only be hitting cardio and abs

    Pump was unreal, without my usual workout partner I actually made some new friends when asking for a spot... working out at a gym full of college age kids they are pretty impressed with the heavy inclines haha. It's always nice hearing words of praise and encouragement, and of course giving them back to the other lifters. I think camaraderie goes a long way in life, and especially in the gym.

    What I need to emphasize here is that Myo actually seems to be working already... my DOMS are INTENSE and I forgot to mention that on my leg day I went from the 4th notch in to the 5th... so my waist is shrinking already on this stack. My aesthetics seem to be improving, weight is holding the same, and DOMS are intense... will be keeping an eye on muscle density, roundness/fullness, and of course tracking my body weight and weights lifted.

    Only did cardio last night, back and cardio tonight.

    Legs are still painfully sore from Sunday and my chest is quite literally sore to the touch... hoping to start getting some wicked DOMS in the back and shoulders as I tend to notice the least DOMS in those two muscle groups, and they (especially shoulders) are lagging behind the rest of my upper body.

    Post Day 8, Back, Abs, Cardio


    I'm feeling a better mind muscle connection than usual, my contractions were really hard and I was able to squeeze through each rep quite nicely.

    I've actually noticed that towards the end of my workouts the contractions are harder to get a good squeeze on as I seem to be getting more out of each set leading me to essentially be burning out slightly faster as a result... I actually view this as a positive. My workouts tend to be very high volume, so for my pump and fatigue to be on point after a reasonable amount of work, rather than spinning my wheels adding more volume is something I consider to be a good thing. Essentially, it seems like I'm getting more out of each set.

    Nothing crazy to report, still having a hard time getting solid lat DOMS.

    Hit 8-16 rep range on lat pulldowns, hammer strength rows, hammer strength pulldowns, pull ups and seated row. Finished with heavy rope crunches, hyperextensions and 20 min elliptical.

    Arm day was a success, good pump, fullness that I kept for hours postWO and despite not feeling that sore today, I do have bruising on my bicep (from training I can only assume, I didnt bump into anything or get hit w anything) which is quite unusual.

    Sorry for a lack of updates over the weekend. Did cardio daily, hit shoulder Fri, quads Sat and hams Sun.

    VERY VERY sore each day. Added in some Recompadrol with my high carb meals to help keep my midsection in check.

    Day 12 Chest


    Workouts have been killer, body composition is pretty good but hard to keep the insane pump and fullness as I came off an anabolic stack recently.

    Bench Press
    315x5

    DB Press
    120x10

    DB Incline
    100x12

    Rep Work on the hammer strength incline press and on cable crossovers

    Considering going into a more powerlifting based routine now that my long time workout partner has moved out of state for work. My natural inclination is heavy training, I have a hard time pushing myself on rep work when going solo.

    Day 14 Back


    Hit a high volume back day last night, have arms tonight.

    Pumps were really solid, back is coming up nicely since dropping the weights and focusing on pulling w and contracting lats rather than involving the forearms and biceps as much

    Lat Pulldowsn at 8 reps each

    75
    90
    105
    120
    135
    150
    165
    180
    195
    210
    225 (these serve as my warm up as well as an actual exercise, I like warming up quite a bit as you can tell lol)

    then did some quick rotator cuff work before resuming back day with

    Hammer Strength Lat Pulldown
    4 sets of 8 w 2 plates/side

    Hammer Strength High Row
    4 sets of 12 w 2 plates/side

    Hammer Strength Low Row
    4 sets of 12, 2 plates per side, alternating grip each set

    Seated Cable Row
    150x4 sets of 8, focusing on leaning forward a bit and on my form

    4 sets of 8 w 80lb db shrugs to finish

    Day 15... HOLY PUMPS!!!


    Destroyed arm day with 4 exercises each for bis and tris, all with slow controlled reps and no body english getting into the movements. My pumps were so brutal that it was actually quite painful... had that Phil Heath look going on for an hour where my arms temporarily looked too big for my body haha. Now if only I always looked like that!

    Sorry that I havent been a bit more consistent in here! The products are working quite well, great pumps, weight is staying solid, mood is good, not feeling overtrained despite a lot of weight moved and volume.

    I killed legs on Friday, took Sat and Sun off and then hit shoulders hard as hell last night.

    Smith Machine Shoulder Press
    worked up to 235 for 4 reps, ties my PR

    Arnold Press
    -I never do these, they gave me a great pump though
    -4 sets of 12 w 40s

    Did a circuit of front, sides and rear raises with 5,10,15,20,25 lbs

    Seated Side Lateral Machine
    4 sets of 8 w 110lbs

    Reverse Pec Dec
    -did some pyramidding w diff rep ranges and weights

    Finished w a lot of sets of seated calves and some light rotator cuff work


    Notes

    Doesnt matter how much I kill shoulders, they never get very sore nor do they grow much... Calves got really sore though, and feel full today.

    Ended up doing a much different workout than anticipated. Arrived to the gym just as a friend got there, he asked if I wanted to train chest and tris together. I had bis and tris planned and hit shoulders HARD the day prior... but I figured what the hell I'll give it a whirl

    Incline DB Press
    -worked up to 1 working set of 120lbs x 10

    Super sets of 4 sets of db flies w hammer strength decline press
    4 sets, 40 lbs and 3 plates/side all sets of 8

    finished chest off w 4 sets of 8, pyramiding up in weight on cable crossovers

    Triceps were tough, 4 sets of drop set tricep pushdown
    200lbs to 100lbs, all til failure

    Skullcrushers superset Tripcep Kickbacks
    85lbs and 10lbs

    finished with 4 sets of close grip bench press, 135 for 4 sets of 12 was all that was needed at this point!

    BRUTAL workout.

    Going to hit just some biceps and abs tonight, then hit back tomorrow with biceps pre fatigued to see how it affects my back day and emphasize pulling with the lats instead of the arms... sort of a fun experimental week over here, switching things up for a nice, and challenging change of pace.

    Sorry for the lack of updates this week, been a damn busy week with the launch of Test Factor.

    Check it out here for a special intro price:

    http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/m...w-version.html

    The overwhelmingly positive customer support on this new formula is much appreciated!

    I've also been writing articles for Orbit Nutrition which has kept me busy.

    Regarding the MyoSynergy and X-Factor, I've been killing it in the gym 5x a week. Hit a PR of 8 reps with 315 on the bench on Monday!

    Leg Day was another example for me that this stack warrants some pretty serious pumps and increases in muscle fullness. I was absolutely uncomfortably pumped in my quads after hack squats, and often I struggle to get the same quality pumps in my lower body that I get in my upper body. Hit it hard with volume and a fair bit of weight.

    Leg Extensions
    about 10 sets ranging from very light to heavy to get the quads warmed up

    Seated Hamstring Curl
    same deal as above, a lot of volume to get that blood in

    Inners and Outers 3 sets of each, high rep to get my hips warmed up and pumped (something I really like doing prior to squats or hacks)

    Hack Squats
    2 plates per side for 4 sets of 12
    1 burnout set of 25 w 1 plate that was absolutely brutal

    4 down and back lunges on the basketball court (body weight)

    HyperExtensions
    4 sets of 20, bodyweight

    Finished with 10 sets of seated calves w 2 plates
