    Set 1 @ 4-5 RM (RPE = 8)
    Set 2 @ 2-3 RM (RPE = 9)
    Set 3 @ 1 RM (RPE = 10)

    Day 18 - Tuesday

    Shoulder Press - 5x180, 3x210, 1x230 (PR)
    Barbell Bent Over Row (overhand) - 5x255, 3x295, 1x315 (PR)

    Cable Chest Fly - 8x42.5, 8x42.5, 8x42.5

    Notes:

    Nutrition: Nutrition is good as it can be while travelling non stop with work and working crazy hours.

    Supplementation: The usual layout

    Energy: Perfect

    Focus: Tuned into my lifts

    Pump: Great

    Strength: 3 new PRs...and up by 10-20lbs on those at that! This is getting ridiculous!

    Day 19 - Thursday

    Deadlift - 4x355, 2x395, 1x405 (PR)
    Squats - 5x225, 2x275, 1x305 (PR)

    Seated Leg Curl - 8x170, 8x170, 8x170
    Standing Calf Raises - 8x195, 8x195, 8x195

    Notes:

    I hit a 1,000lb total for my Bench, Dead, and Squat for the first time ever (1,005lbs to be exact)!!!! Bench was performed one day and deads and squats on a second day....regardless, I have never hit this total for those three lifts ever before! STOKED!!!

    Nutrition: Nutrition is good as it can be while travelling non stop with work and working crazy hours.

    Supplementation: The usual layout

    Energy: Perfect

    Focus: Zoned in!

    Pump: Quads are blown up from powerlift rep ranges....this has never happened until this supplement stack.

    Strength: And 2 more PRs...I have successfully hit new PRs in all 5 of my core lifts in this strength phase.


    Day 20 - Friday

    Shoulder Press - 5x180, 2x215, 1x230 (Matched PR *Assisted rep)
    Barbell Bent Over Row (overhand) - 5x255, 3x295, 1x325 (PR)
    Bench Press - 5x235, 2x285, 1x295 (Matched PR *Assisted rep)
    Rear Delt Cable Fly - 8x17.5, 8x17.5, 8x17.5
    Widegrip pulldown- 8x170, 8x170, 8x170
    Cable Chest Fly - 8x42.5, 8x42.5, 8x35

    Notes:

    Nutrition: Nutrition is good as it can be while travelling non stop with work and working crazy hours.

    Supplementation: The usual layout

    Energy: Great until my last rep on each set....began feeling a little more tired out than usual.

    Focus: Nothing getting in my head!

    Pump: The most vicious chest/back/arm/shoulder pump I've ever had...this may have had something to do with my 1rm attempts today.

    Strength: Another bent over row PR but I couldn't push more on my bench and shoulder press. I actually required a touch of assistance from my spotter on those two lifts.

    Day 21 - Sunday

    Deadlift - 4x365, 2x400, 1x failed rep
    Squats - 5x225, 2x275, 1x failed rep (thank god for safety bars)
    Single Leg Extension - 8x90, 8x90, 8x90
    Single Leg Curl - 8x90, x90, 8x90
    Horizontal Calf Raises - 8x230, 8x230, 8x230

    Notes:

    Nutrition: Long travel day lead to sub par nutrition

    Supplementation: The usual layout

    Energy: Felt pretty good but the travel day and crazy hours this week definitely took its toll on me today

    Focus: Focus was there but I did find myself losing focus after a couple sets. I feel that my lack of energy today was the reason for my lower focus.

    Pump: Another good pump pulled off regardless of other low points today.

    Strength: I think I finally hit my fatigue point both mentally and physically over the last couple of days. This was apparent with my shoulder press, bench press, deadlift, and squat 1rm attempts. Thank god next week is a de-load week and then I'm taking a week off for vacation.

    Week 8

    De-load week. 3 sets of 15-20 rep full body workouts, 3 times during the week. Next week I'm taking a much needed week off.

    Ok....so I just got back from a week of vacation and will be beginning the metabolic training phase of the MAX Muscle plan. But first....here is my final impression and review of the products I covered in this log!

    As you've all followed along, I was following an 8 week, strength phase of training. This was my first time in a couple years incorporating power/strength lift rep ranges. I was also eating more than I normally would to help with my strength gains. The supplementation of AmentoMax and CistaMax worked extremely well in sync with my training and nutrition. I honestly feel that these two supplements helped with my strength gains over these last 8 weeks. I have never seen strength gains like this before when I've done a strength phase of training, and I've never been so buried with work travel and long hours as I have been over the last 8 weeks. Along with the Amento and Cista, I also used 2 bottles of PES Anabeta Elite along with a bottle of Erase Pro (a second bottle of Erase Pro will be run during my 4 week metabolic phase along with a bottle of PES Norcodrene.)

    All in all, these two products were excellent. I said it once in one of my weekly recaps, that the supplements alone didn't provide me with the results I saw, however, they certainly did a perfect job supplementing my training and nutrition.

    Oh....I almost forgot! The final weigh-in........

    8 weeks ago I started at 185lbs
    The final day of my run I weight in at 195lbs
    10lb increase in 8 weeks....I'll take it!
    This wasn't a full 10lbs of lean mass....I have definitely added some fat mass which I chock up to eating while traveling for work and eating around a hectic work day schedule. I can confidently say that of the 10lbs, I would venture a guess at 6-7lbs lean mass.

    For a couple of natural supplements, I will take that kind of gain any day!

    Thanks for following along over the last 8 weeks! I hope everyone enjoyed my posts and following along with my training!



    And just to let everyone know what's in store after my next 4 weeks of metabolic training....

    I will be performing a 12 week hypertrophy phase where I'll be stacking:

    PES Anabeta Elite
    PES Erase Pro
    Analyzed AmentoMax
    Molecular Nutrition X-Factor Advanced
    Molecular Nutrition Test Factor
    Along with the supporting cast I ran with this log

    All aboard the gainz train!!!

    Yeah man it's been quite the 8 weeks I must say! The results have astonished me. I'll post up my before and after shots this evening. Forgot to post them with my final review.

    There's a comp in November but I've decided not to enter. The past 2 years I have come in looking great, last year being a huge improvement on my first show, but I still haven't been big enough to compete with the bigger guys. I'm taking the time to put on the size I need and to do it right. There's a show next May which is my target. I hit the stage at 170lbs @ ~ 7%bf at the last show and I'm looking to hit 180lbs @ ~7% in May.

    Over the next 4 weeks I'll be running Norcodrene alongside my second bottle of Erase Pro (started the first during the last 4 weeks of this log), Forskolin95 and AmentoMax. I finished up my last bit of AmentoMax about 2 weeks ago so hopefully a 2 week break is enough lol. I can't see there being too much of an issue.

    I'll post the link to that thread in this thread once I start it up this week. I'm two lifting days and 1 cardio day into it so far and the high reps and short rest periods are killing me after 8 weeks of low rep strength training!

    Bad ass! Amentomax is hard to take a break from so I'm surprised you lasted that long! Haha
    I look forward to following the new log bro.

    Here is my before shot which was taken a couple weeks after my show. I had lost a lot of my fullness from the show. I am very aware of the need to reverse diet out of a show, however, as you have probably gathered from my earlier posts, it was extremely hard to do this year because of my constant travel and hectic work schedule. Because of this I didn't stay as lean as I wanted to but I'm definitely not disappointed with my current body composition taking into account my inability to reverse diet properly.

    Here is my a couple weeks post show. After this shot, my travel really began to get out of hand and my nutrition suffered.

    Wow you added some serious mass bro. Stayed fairly dry and lean in the process. Nothing a bit of a cut couldn't sculpt up nicely.

    I was sitting a little under 180 here...I started my log at 185 so add a few pounds to this shot. I thought I took some immediate pre log shots but I can't find them anywhere. If I manage to find them I'll post them up but if not, this shot will have to do.

    Thanks man. I am very happy with these past 8 weeks for sure. I'm sure it would've been even more impressive if not for the travel but it is what it is. I'm not complaining!

    Using Norcodrene, Amentomax, and Forskolin95 right now for 4 weeks along with a metabolic training program to cut a couple of those pounds off hopefully. I'm holding a bunch of water in those afters too...traveling via airplane for a few hours gets me bloated like crazy.
