Recomp with Jetfuel T-300/ABE/Alphamax/X-Gels/Burn24

Page 2 of 3 First 123 Last

  1. Strength has been going up every week by several reps and or ten to fifteen pounds! Lol i will be adding Amentomax to the second half of the 8 week run! I will supplement calcium with it to aid it's strength mechanism. Stupid numbers ahead Recovery has been crazy, when i get DOMs they are not the fresh achy ones, they are the tight muscle ones (recovered but still sore), if that makes sense.


  2. Late to this but in! Some good looking workouts there sir, glad alphamax be treating ya right!

    Pre workout 2Jetfuel T-300/2AM
    I had group PT today, we did a bunch of squat/lunge/side squat/burpee circuits. Then we played Ultimate frisbee, lots of sprinting up and down the field. I was sprinting up and down the full hour no problem and crushed the bodyweight circuits. All this was done fasted. Afterwards i only had time to do the main lift which was bench.
    Dropped 4X-gels/2ABE and got into it!
    Bench
    Barx6
    135x5
    225x3
    Worksets
    200x5
    230x5
    260x11 Could have gone 15 or even 20 using rest/pause, but i backed off and terminated the set while i still felt good.
    Being able to perform as i did after high intensity work for an hour was impressive, i did not smell ammonia (i think i read that means you are burning muscle). But for me
    personally feed workouts are far and away better, especially with Burn24 stuffing the muscles with glycogen. I am going to have to work something out for Tues and Thurs.

  4. Today's workout
    A.M. dose 3 Jetfuel T-300/2AM/2Burn24
    Pre workout 4X-Gels/2ABE
    Intra the usual
    Today i wanted to finish the Bench workout so i hit shoulders and triceps....had an amazing workout! First of all when i got in the gym and took off my hoodie i spent ten mins staring in the mirror because i did not recognize my body lol. My shoulders have separated from my biceps and are starting to cap off chest is much more pronounced, a guy i worked with asked what i was doing because i was getting bigger! My waist has dropped to 36 3/4 from 38! I have increased in size noticeably without increasing in weight. To be fair I am not a hard gainer but fat loss and muscle gain at the same time is new for me! And the pumps i had in and after this workout....were painful but in the best way possible
    DB shoulder press
    70x6
    90x4 PR!
    100x3 PR!
    90x5 PR!
    70x12 PR!
    60x25 PR!
    Ok, as you can tell this workout was CRAZY, last workout 90 was my heavy 3! This time i pressed it for over three twice in the workout! I have never touched 100 before this went up like gravity took a break, i could have thrown up 110 or 115 once I KNOW IT! Last workout i had 70 for 6 once ascending and once descending. This time i pressed it for 6 to warmup and then after all those PR's i pressed it for double the second set from the last workout! Lastly i increased the number of reps for 60 by 15....i do not know if these strength jumps are normal for this sort of stack but if they keep going, i will be pressing 130's for reps by the end of this stack! After i finished the last set i had a massive pump in my chest upper back and through the entirety of both arms, it felt amazing. The pump was so crazy in my chest and shoulders that it shorten the length of my shirt lol Oh there will be many more cycles of this insanity!!!
    Close grip bench press
    135x5
    225x5
    275x3 PR!
    295x3 PR!
    225x5
    135x25
    I felt like i could have done 315, but i decided to back off. I am training myself to leave something in the tank sometimes, ego is what will get you hurt, besides i have had a lot of PR's thus far no need to ruin it with impatience! And 295 felt so light and this is close grip, I have no idea what my one rep max bench must look like by now.
    Side lateral raises
    35x12
    40x8 PR!
    50x10 PR!
    40x8 PR!
    30x12
    25x25
    The side lateral raise has always kicked my butt, but today was different. I have never used 40's before....so to get them for 8 twice with strict form really amazed me! Then to go on and hit 50's for 10 i really don't know what to say.....i am looking forward to the next session...this is all very crazy and fun! In the words of Ice Cube "Today was a good day!"

    P.S. Libido is pretty crazy, maybe thats why i am lifting so heavy so quickly Sleep and recovery is consistently good!

  5. Ok, I rested Sunday to Tuesday. The purpose behind that was to allow this aggravated sprain in the lower right side of my back. Wednesday I did a Core circuit.
    Pre workout 2 ABE/4X-Gels
    Intra the usual
    Core and cardio
    2x rounds
    5 reps crush plank (contract every muscle as hard as possible for 10 secs, 10 secs rest)
    10 reps Hanging leg raises ( first set unbroken)
    15 Barbell rollouts
    20 100lb DB side bends ( both sets unbroken)
    40 KB swings (24kg) (these were brutal)
    I seriously underestimated the difficulty of holding a maximum contraction for ten seconds! The only thing that made me sweat more was the swings. On the last set of swings my back started to talk so it was definitely a good place to stop. Listening to my body way more will help me to avoid future injuries. Next was conditioning.
    Bike interval sprints 30secs work 30 secs rest for 15 mins
    This workout felt good the side bends are nothing now even with the sprain so i am gonna go up to 110 next core day. Besides GM's, can anyone suggest some core builders. My core is weak and really the limiting factor when it comes to every major lift. Thanks for your inputs.

  6. I will try to find a video, but I will try to explain what I like to do for my core. Lay on the ground or a flat bench and place a dumbbell or kettlebell on on stomach. Keep your hands on it to steady it. Slowly exhale all of the air out of you. Then, inhale quickly and push your stomach out. Slowly exhale, this is kind of like a slow negative and repeat. I know if seems kind of odd, but I think it has helped my core and it also helps your breathing which is important, especially when going heavy with your major lifts.

  7. I will certainly be putting that into practice, a friend of mine ran track in college and had to do that exercise for diaphragm strength.

  8. Pre workout 2ABE/2AM/3JTF/4X-Gels
    Intra the usual
    Yesterday was group PT, first we performed a few body weight circuits. This was done fasted easily and at a fast pace. Afterwards we played soccer for about 40 mins,
    sprinting back and forth was no issue. When i did begin to hit a wall, I was still able to sprint on command. On this stack athletic performance is not hindered by pumps at all. I think you benefit greatly from the enhanced blood flow and resulting lactic acid clearing. The localized inflammation caused by the X-Gels is not to be taken lightly, my upper back and chest were sore from the push ups the very next day! On a side note i have been getting comments on the slimming of my waist and the increase of my size.

  9. Pre workout 2ABE/4X-Gels
    Intra as usual
    Today we only had about 45 mins so it was a short sweet workout Leg strength/Core, to protect my still tender lower back, I replaced squat with one legged leg press.
    S.L. Leg press
    Warm up
    118#x15
    208#x10
    298#x5
    Work sets
    388#x5
    478#x5 PR!
    568#x3 PR!
    Awesome leg workout, i have never touched 478# much less 568#! All the reps felt good and the moment i engaged the weight, the aggression kicked in and the reps came easy. After the leg workout there was no pump to speak of, not sure why. Nonetheless i wasn't looking for pump, just strength work. My goal was to get 10 plates for at least one but three is what i ended up with
    Standing Abs 10 sets of 10 @95#
    First of all, i have never done these before. So the first thing that i noticed was how much my upper and lower abs burned at the same time! I love this new core work out, me and my training partner got a little excited and knocked out a bunch of back to back sets. Tomorrow we are gonna do some high rep back and heavy core stuff and end with 20 mins of bike interval sprints! As i was typing this i had a food pump hit my left glute lol, just want to be thorough in this log I notice the pumps often hit me an hour or more after the workout. Check out this core routine any advice is welcome!
    5 sets of 6-8 Heavy standing abs
    2 sets of 5 reps 10 sec hold crush plank (RKC version)
    5 sets of 6-8 reps Pavlov press
    2-3 sets of 3-5 reps Diaphragm exercise (10 sec negative)
    3-5 sets of 20 reps of DB side bends 100# and up
    10 sets of 10 reps Standing abs 95#
    Recovery on this stack is very fast so i want to take advantage and really tax the core, hypertrophy and strength are built in to this routine. If you see a exercise that is deemed ineffective or you know of a more effective exercise, i thank you in advance for your willingness to share!

    The pump in my lats from this exercise and the next was painful, felt like my arms were being propped up on shelfs.
    5 Reps @315 Deadlift/Bent over row dropset 15 reps @225 Deadlift/Bent over row dropset 30 reps @135 Deadlift/Bent over rows
    Very painful and effective, the pump hit as soon as finished the last rep. I HAD to stretch my lats, the pump was stupid. My strength on the T-rows and 315 rows was through the roof. I maintained good form and full ROM, i feel sorry for the middle of my back though lol. Needless to say i was crushed after this and all that core stuff i wrote out, is not happening today.

    Standing Abs
    10x10 95#
    This was painful as always but it is so much more intense than situps, no real pump to speak of. I notice the contractions are strong even when I feel fatigued. As always aggression kicks in when i feel the heavy weight or when the lactic acid burn really sets in, i think that is my favorite part about this stack aside from the strength. My muscles always feel hard and my fiance has been commenting on how much slimmer my waist is! I have to figure out a way to load the standing abs with more weight (machine only goes up to 95#) without ending up on an epic gym fails video.

  11. Wednesday
    OHP/Chest hyper/Core
    Pre-workout 2AM/2ABE/5X-Gels
    Intra the usual
    I figured i would try 5 X-Gels today and the result was an amazing workout but also some nausea. I thought i was gonna puke after my first warm up sets of Db press. On a positive note this may have had something to do with the intensity of the workout causing blood to rush out of the abdominal area. At least that is what i think happens typically in intense leg workouts. At any rate the feeling of nausea subsided and then came back after a really hard set, not nearly as intense as the first time i experianced it though. Will I do 5 X-Gels again? Absolutely this workout was full of PRs and i could have gone heavier in one instance for reps!

    110x5 PR!
    125x5 PR! These went easy until the last rep, i felt like i could of done 130 with no issues. But i decided to save it for the next workout.
    110x6 PR!
    100x10 PR!
    85x7 PR! (Lol i had nothing left, this felt like 125's)

    152.5x6
    167.5x3
    95x100 Giant set little to rest, cramping in my hip flexors lol it was a good core workout. Since i have never done heavy standing abs i am excited to see how far this stack will take my core development and as a result my overall strength development! Lastly no crazy DOMS, feel a little moody some days but nothing crazy. Libido is still high recovery is still great, sleep is good, waking up is rough lol grogginess is likely due to suppressed cortisol. Workouts are amazing, PRs are becoming common placed.

    This time around the nausea was not a factor, unfortunately i did not eat before working out, the deadlift session would have gone better if i had.

    405x0 I made two attempts and was able to keep my core tight, the standing abs really have helped. The heavy core work is already showing its value. This is not within 20lbs of my one rep max.....next time i will eat before the dead lift.
    Leg extensions 5x20, 10 reps ROM, 10 reps half ROM then Isometric hold with partner applying resistance 110#
    Single leg press x10, Leg press x20 @298#
    After these two exercises the pump in my legs prevented me from walking properly, later when the pump subsided my legs almost gave out on me as i was walking out of the gym lol. Oh the DOMS are going to be crazy.

    Had a very busy day got into the gym with about 40 mins before the it closed.
    Next leg strength workout will be squats again, looking forward to that.

    Tried to hit core properly but time ran out, workouts continue to be consistently good. A minimum of one PR every workout is the norm and with no sign of slowing. Positives continue to....well...continue. The only consistent sort of negative is the grogginess in the morning from the cortisol suppression (i think).

  16. Damn dude, nice PR's there!

    Started at 19 drop set down to 13, repeated this 3 times
    This workout was short but intense, again the pump does not hinder me when performing athletics or sprint work. I need to do more of this sort of thing to take advantage of the fat loss side of the recomp.

  18. Thanks this stack has been amazing, the more difficult the rep the more aggression comes up to help you move the weight.

  19. Monday 06-30-14
    Back/Core/Calves
    Pre-workout 2AM/2ABE/5X-Gels
    Intra the usual
    This workout was about hitting weaknesses so that my main lift numbers soar....and i don't end up in surgery because i was lazy!
    Back extensions 10x weighted followed immediately by 10x Bodyweight single leg back extensions....Holy pump Batman!!! We ran this for six sets, hamstrings were screaming. But the first set felt like i had rebar on each side my spine! Have you ever had a pump so crazy in you back it made you walk funny?!? The single leg work is helping me correct the strength and muscle imbalance in my lower back, that coupled with the Heavy core work is going to help me stay injury free. The pump was really crazy on the right side (the side i sprained), perhaps i favor that side, but the fact that it fatigue so much quicker than the left makes it the weak side. The pump did not leave me till i got to abs lol.
    Calves giant set
    10- 10s rest- 20- 20s rest- 30- 30s rest- 40reps
    These look easy perhaps but they destroy my calves, when i finished i had no choice but to walk around flat footed and with the pump in my back that also contributed to my Frankenstein walk.
    Standing abs
    122.5 x 8

    152.5 x 6
    175 x 5
    182.5 x 5 PR!
    190 x 1 PR!
    When i train my abs this way EVERYTHING in the core area has to contract! From the hip flexors to the diaphragm, I do not see me training abs lying down again.

  20. Damn, 30/30 for your intervals and rest! I usually do 15 second intervals with 45 seconds of light work and I'm drained lol

  21. Wow, so the past couple of weeks have been very hectic. I only had one workout last week which consisted of...
    Monday 7/7/14
    Pre Workout 2AM/5X-Gels/2ABE
    Intra per usual
    20 100m sprints, These were rough and the ultimate test of the stacks ability to either boost athletic activity or hinder it via pumps or nausea. Even when i was nearly at mental failure i was able to drive all the way through the end. Because they group sprints they were timed so everyone had something to push for, my time stayed consistent until about 16 or 17 were it fell by 1-2 sec each sprint lol. It was brutal, then we played ultimate frisbee for a sort of cool down.

    On Wed i stopped the stack all together, i started to break out on my face and i felt really fatigued waking up in the morning, probably because i was not lifting or putting a demand on body at all physically. I recovered sleep got a whole lot better, my face quickly started clearing up and mood improved. The cortisol suppresion in the morning makes it so hard for me to wake up in the morning, i am going to try taking AM in the mid morning after i am awake and then hours before i go to bed. When i came off there was no massive retention of water, nothing crazy at all.

    Today started again, felt like i never left lol
    Pre workout
    2AM/5X-GELS/2ABE/2JTF

    Work sets

    180x2 PR! I have never touched 180 in the OHP, so this was awesome, the heavy dumbbell work and heavy standing abs are to thank for this one!!....stack doesn't hurt
    Warm up
    75x7
    DB press immediate super set to pushups, 12DB press 12 pushups, 17, 25
    This was done with little to no rest i used 60's (good thing i did)
    My first set of pushups was surprisingly hard i could barely complete 12 unbroken lol. The following sets were struggled through get 3-5 reps at a time taking 2-3 breaths and going back at it. Because i am military there is a high value on muscle endurance and conditioning, so my routines will reflect more of that. A guy in the gym said he was tired watching me lol, i did not have enough breath to respond and the pump....stupendous lol.
    Incline runs 20secs on 20secs off @10% incline
    This sounded easy until i finished the second one...
    1. 20s sprint 10secs rest 8.5speed
    2. 20s sprint 10secs rest 8.5speed
    3. 20s sprint 20secs rest 8.5speed

    90 secs rest lol pain all over
    6. 20s sprint 35secs rest 7.5speed
    7. 20s sprint 20secs rest 7.5speed
    I felt a little lightheaded on the last one, that was really rough, which is why i need to work my conditioning more!

    Treadmill pushes (Brutal)
    Now when i heard about these i was kinda skeptical about their effectiveness, then i did some research and they talked about them EliteFTS. Supposed to be just like sled pushes.
    15secs sprint 45 secs rest and i needed every bit of it! 10 rds!
    5rds then 2mins 30secs rest then the remaining 5rds
    Quads were on fire and even with the rest i was dripping sweat, amazing workout! There will be way more of this!

    Intra the usual
    Ok Dept. PT was do what you want, which i love. Now the last time i did deadlift, i could not even lift 405 once and almost revisted the tweak in my lower back. This was for two reasons, the first being that i was deadlifting scared, afraid i might hurt my back so i was pulling, but not violently driving with my quads to break the bar off the floor. Second, my core was truly weak and just not firing like it was supposed to. Today both issues were addressed!
    Warm up Bike Sprint ladder

    Lol because i hit the core hard yesterday and deadlifted right before this...there was not much left in that muscle group. I finished up with some treadmill pushes and PR'd, i got through all ten rounds back to back on the prescribed rest. Next time i will increase the incline by 1%.

    First off i forgot to take the Amentomax, but i have not noticed anything aside from the usual positives of this stack. I took more days off then i wanted but i finally made it to the gym and i am so glad i did!

    R.I.P. shoulders you will be missed...
    Conditioning (Oh so painful)
    7 mins of whatever is worse than hell, I found this online.
    60secs of Treadmill sprint...which WILL degrade into a push then 60secs of chins/pullups
    50secs Treadmill sprint then 50secs of pushups
    40secs Treadmill sprint then 40secs pullups
    30secs You get the idea
    20secs
    10secs
    This may look easy, but my workout buddy runs his 1.5 mile in 9:30, he was gassed! He almost fell off on the 30sec round lol. The pump in your quads is painful, be careful when you start to slow down, your legs may betray you. This was awesome and this sort of thing will be the norm for these workouts. A big adjustment i made on Tuesday is only taking the stack on workout days, i have not noticed any degradation of stack positives. And my sleep has been much better now that i have been taking the AM away from bed time. Squats up next!!!

  24. Monday
    Pre workout 2AM/2ABE/5X-Gels/2Amentomax
    Intra the usual
    Today I only had time for the main lift, tomorrow i will be finishing up back hyper and core.
    Squat
    Warm up
    135x5
    135x5
    225x3
    Work sets
    225x5
    260x5
    295x5 While this was not a PR, it has been weeks since i have squatted. This was a pretty good comeback, my back felt great, and strength out of the bottom was way better than what i expected. This was a short workout but it was good to get back to squatting!

  25. Nice workouts
