    Molecular Nutrition's NEW TEST FACTOR: DJ's Daily Log!



    DJ's DAILY TEST FACTOR LOG! With Weekly Video Updates!

    Big shout out to MOLECULAR NUTRITION and @SwolenONE for allowing me the opportunity to log their NEW TEST FACTOR! I've used MN products in the past including their ArA products X-Factor and X-Factor Advanced and with knowing how well those 2 products have treated me I'm excited to see what the revamped TEST FACTOR can do as far as delivering solid results in the gym and in the mirror! Please follow me along as I attempt to see what MN's NEW TEST FACTOR has in store for me!

    STATS
    Height: 6'9"
    Weight: 244.7lbs (as of yesterday - this will be checked daily)
    Goals: Recomp while retaining or gaining strength
    Diet: Fluctuates, typically ~ 4000cals as day (40/40/20)
    Training: CUBE Method (Powerlifting)

    CURRENT TRAINING MAXES/ALL TIME MAXES
    SQUAT: 355lbs (365lbs)
    BENCH: 290lbs (320lbs)
    DEAD: 485lbs (500lbs)

    Cube Method is based off of my best meet and/or training maxes. This log will coincide with my second cycle of Cube Method which is a 9 week program that tests maxes in the 10th week. My first Cube method had training percentages based off of my first meet maxes (early March). I blew most of those out of the water and have since readjusted my training maxes and percentages. If anyone has any more questions about this style of training feel free to ask. I do not plan on competing in another powerlifting meet for quite some time as I have a new addition to the family arriving in late August so that will be taking up some of my free time but I'm OK with that

    NEW Test Factor™ was formulated by the acclaimed research & development team at Molecular Nutrition with two clear goals in mind. First, to support maximum increases in serum total and free testosterone levels, surpassing previous benchmarks. Second, to create a formula that goes beyond the standard T-boosting effects of this category, supporting a wide range of action including increased protein synthesis rates, reduced muscle catabolism, extended muscle endurance, enhanced recovery, and heightened libido/sexual potency. The resulting formula includes some of the most effective bioactive compounds known to sports science, and represents a major step forward in hormonal support supplementation!

    Key Benefits of Test Factor:

    • Increase Total and Free Testosterone
    • Increase Muscle Mass & Strength
    • Improve Muscle Endurance
    • Preserve Muscle Mass (Anti-Catabolic)
    • Speed Muscle Recovery
    • Support Libido & Sexual Function



    Key Ingredients Include:

    Sarcosine (N-methylglycine): An amino acid found naturally in the body, sarcosine plays an important role in the biosynthesis of testosterone. It is believed to act primarily by supporting N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) neurotransmission. Sarcosine supports the activity of NMDA in two ways. First, it is a competitive inhibitor of the type I glycine transporter (GlyT1). This reduces glycine uptake into cells, increasing its availability for synaptic NMDA receptors. Second, sarcosine has been shown to be a ligand for the NMDA receptor itself, acting as a co-agonist at the glycine binding site. NMDA is directly involved in hypothalamic GnRH synthesis, which in turn increases the output of gonadotropic hormones, and ultimately testosterone.

    AlivEL™ 100 Ultimate Eurycoma longifolia (also known as tongkat ali): This ingredient has been shown in placebo-controlled studies to increase testosterone levels by 37% in men. It has also been shown to reduce cortisol by 16%, which is a stress hormone that can break down (catabolize) muscle tissue. These beneficial effects are mediated by a series of bioactive components in the plant, of which eurycomanone is believed to be the most important. High quality eurycoma longifolia extracts are standardized for their eurycomanone content, with 1% being the previous high mark. The new high-potency extract in Test Factor™ contains TWICE that concentration, a remarkable 2% eurycomanone.

    PrimaVie™: This part of the Test Factor™ formula is a special high potency extract of Shilajit, an organo-mineral found in the Himalayan mountain region. The main bioactive component of shilajit is believed to be fulvic acid, an organic polymer. Clinical studies on adult infertile men found that 200mg of shilajit per day (containing 54.8% fulvic acid) for 90 days increased testosterone levels by 23.5% (from 4.85ng/mL to 5.99ng/mL). This level of supplementation was also shown to reduce blood glucose by 6.8%, suggesting other potential metabolic improvement. Test Factor™ exclusively uses PrimaVie™ high potency shilajit extract, which contains a minimum of 60% fulvic acid.

    ActeoFIT™: A specialized blend of two herbal extracts, rehmannia glutinosa and cistanche deserticola. Several studies suggest the components of this blend may support exercise performance. One series of preliminary experiments with mice demonstrated an increase in exercise endurance, along with inhibited creatine kinase and improved glycogen stores. This may translate to better performance, along with preserved muscle mass and energy. Another similar set of experiments found hyperplasia and hypertrophy of muscle cell mitochondria, but without damage to the myofibril. This suggests possible benefits for muscle fiber growth, including an anti-catabolic (protein sparing) effect.
    Follow me as I attempt to hit new PRs with the help of MN's NEW Test Factor!!!

    DAY 1: SQUATTERDAY

    BODYWEIGHT: 244.7lbs dry weight upon waking up

    PREWORKOUT: 2xTest Factor, 4xX-Factor Advanced, 1 scoop STIMAHOLIC, 1 scoop NOXYGEN

    SQUATS - SPEED
    135x5wu
    185x4wu
    225x3wu
    250x3,3,3

    MODIFIED REVERSE BANDS SQUAT
    I don't have bands so instead I go for a heavier single based off my main lift...
    285x2
    Whoops. Only supposed to get 1 but it felt so good I went for two

    OLYMPIC STANCE DEEP SQUAT
    135x5
    185x5,5,5,5,5

    LEG PRESS
    553x15
    553x10+463x5
    463x15,15,15

    REVERSE HYPERS
    BWx12,12,12

    GOOD MORNINGS
    95x10,10,10

    CARDIO
    20 mins incline treadmill @ 7.5% incline and 3.2mph pace = 190cals

    I'll comment more on this with the intro video but the first thing I noticed about the TF pills is they literally look like someone took some gravel, crushed it up, and stuck it inside the capsules. It is the strangest looking pill I have ever seen... but after looking at the profile I can't wait to see what it does for me. Since its only DAY 1 I don't have much to comment on other than that today felt really good in the gym. I took 3 days off prior to lifting today and I came in fresh and motivated. Hitting 285x2 really got me stoked mentally and helped me speed through the rest of my workout.

    I typically lift in the AM so I'm taking 2 pre (or w/ breakfast if its an off day) and 2 before bed with dinner. I've actually been forgetting to take my second dose so that'll be starting tonight.

    Sexy bottle shot!

    Subbed, thanks for getting this log up so quickly. Let me know if you have any questions whatsoever along the way. Really stoked for these logs and to hear all of the feedback.

    Since the ActeoFit has a strong GDA effect, take 2 caps AM and 2 caps PM both with, or 15 min prior, to carbohydrate containing meals.

    DAY 3: LISS CARDIO

    2.72 miles in 26:20 ~ 460 calories burned

    Will be throwing these in from time to time just to keep the heart healthy. Its been my first time going for a run in nearly a year and my legs/knees were not a fan of it whatsoever. At this point I've only been taking TF with breakfast. Nothing to note yet.

    DAY 4+5: REST

    BODYWEIGHT: Fluctuating between 244-246lbs the past few days. Started doubling the dose of TF on DAY 4. Also right in the middle of the week with a new job that is keeping me on my toes... so I apologize for the lack of daily updates! Starting to have some sleeping issues but I'm not sure its related to the new job or to TF. We'll see if it keeps up as we head into the weekend.

    2 caps of Test Factor and in the background are 4 caps of X-Factor Advanced


    BODYWEIGHT: 244.3lbs

    So far so good! I've been continuing the dosing at 2 pills twice a day, once with breakfast and again with dinner (so usually 6AM and 6-8PM). Taking these pills with food hasn't caused any stomach irritation or other GI discomfort problems. The sleeping issues I had described earlier were not related to TF at all and instead I chalk them up to 1) the new job and 2) my wife being pregnant who wakes up 3 times in the middle of the night to pee and 3) a little rat dog Yorkie that seems to enjoy jumping off the bed and returning five minutes later to scratch at the side of the bed so we can let him back up... only for him to jump off again half an hour later and repeat the process. Each time I have woken up in the past this week my mouth has been extremely dry so I'm trying to remedy that by drinking more water throughout the day but sometimes the offset of that is waking up to pee in the middle of the night. BW is staying relatively the same which was expected because I haven't really tweaked my calories much. Strength is so-so at the moment. I felt GREAT during squats, but bench and deadlift had me scratching my head. I was disappointed earlier in the week with not being able to lock out a 290lbs floor press and I tweaked my back slightly doing deadlifts last night but it was tolerable and now I feel OK today with just the usual post-workout soreness. I have noticed some slight increase in vascularity which I can't attribute to anything else besides TF which was kind of a surprise! Tonight is another off day so I can spend it with my wife and then we go into a three day weekend and I will have the intro video filmed and posted tomorrow @gokix811!

    Had a great day in the gym today and ended up working on more than I meant to (I haven't done front/lateral raises in like... a year... so it felt good to randomly throw those in. Today was a little more shoulder heavy than I meant to and that is just fine by me. I had endurance out the wazoo (perhaps from TF??? Quake??? Both???) and just didn't want to leave. Skin is starting to feel a little tighter especially in the forearms and biceps/triceps. Noticed the pumps becoming even more pronounced than usual. Didn't have any heart rate or respiratory rate elevations during training which is a plus (a lot of stimmed preworkouts get me too worked up to perform adequately). I was surprised to see that I had lost a pound when I stepped on the scale even though the diet hasn't changed. I'll be keeping an eye on that. This begins week 2 and tomorrow is Heavy Squats! Looking forward to it!!!

    DAY 10: BENCHPRESS - REPS

    PREWORKOUT: 2 caps TF w/ breakfast... 1.5 scoops EVOL, 1 scoop Endurate, 1 scoop NOXYGEN, 4 caps XFA

    INCLINE BARBELL BENCHPRESS
    BAR x 5
    135 x 5
    160 x 4
    185 x 3,3,3,3,3

    INCLINE DB PRESS
    55s x 20,20

    CLOSE GRIP BENCHPRESS
    155 x 12,12,12

    CABLE FLY
    25 x 15,15,15 (weight ea. arm)

    TRICEP PUSHDOWN
    Rope Separation 35 x 50
    Straight Bar 57.5 x 50

    STATIONARY BIKE HIIT CARDIO
    20 minutes for 7 sprint cycles and around 150cals burned

    Felt amazing today. I can usually throw more weight on for close grip benchpress but after doing all that work in front of it 155 became a challenge. The pumps were much more noticeable today prior to any other workout since I started TF, especially during cable flys (contracting hard throughout the motion. 25 is light but I lifted in a way to make it difficult) and tricep pushdowns. Endurance was solid and the HIIT cardio seemed relatively easy. A solid end to the weekend workouts.

    Way to kill it in the gym time and time again. Glad to hear you're loving Test Factor. It absolutely has endurance and recovery benefits with the Primavie and ActeoFit, the rest of your stack is certainly helping in those areas as well.

    I hope you had a great time celebrating the 4th with your friends & family!

    DAY 13: HIIT CARDIO

    Hopped on the stationary bike and hammered out 20 minutes, 8 sprint cycles for around 5 miles total distance and 160 calories burned. Short, sweet and effective.

    Deadlifts later tonight... my favorite ! As long as my back doesn't give me issues...

    Haha truth! No deadlift tonight my mechanic called and said my car is ready to be picked up. Between travel time and traffic I won't have time for the gym tonight with the exception of a quick HIIT session if I can squeeze it in. Deadlift tomorrow after work. Bringing my gym bag and change of clothes w me so I have no excuse :-)! My back is still slightly irritated so another day of resting it should be good.

    DAY 16: BENCHPRESS - SPEED

    PREWORKOUT: 2 caps TF (with breakfast)... 1.5 scoops Nitramine, 2 scoops NOXYGEN, 4 caps XFA

    FLOOR PRESS
    205x5,5,5,5,5 (30 sec. rest between sets)

    INCLINE DB PRESS
    60s x 15,15,15

    TRICEP PUSHDOWN - VBAR

    STANDING DB PRESS

    LAYING DB FLYS

    35s x 15,15,15

    So I skipped the fluff n' buff day and decided to jump right into benchpress. I did for this for two reasons: 1) my chest hadn't been worked in nearly a week and 2) my chest felt great and I was just ready to lift heavy things so I decided to move into Week 3 of the CUBE and will hit up the bodybuilding day at a later time. I meant to film my weekly video today but my wife came home from her baby shower and it was like Christmas at my house for a few hours so I didn't get around to it. Should have that filmed this evening (Tuesday) ! I've seen some noticeable changes that I'll hit on later.

    DAY 18: HIIT CARDIO

    Woke up earlier than usual and drank 2 scoops of Alphamine and hit up the gym at 5:40AM. I've never been in there that early before and I was surprised to see that there were quite a few people getting their fitness on when I arrived. I was only in there for a quick 20 minutes and I thought I'd lay my HIIT cycle out so you all can understand what I mean when I say "x number of sprint cycles."

    STATIONARY BIKE HIIT
    5 minute warm up pedaling at a low pace with a resistance of 1 (the bikes I use have a resistance setting ranging from 1-25, with 25 being just god awful painfully hard to pedal)
    SPRINT CYCLE 1
    5:00-5:10 - Pedal as fast as possible at resistance of 1
    5:10-5:30 - Pedal as fast as possible at a resistance of 25
    5:30-7:00 - Pedal at a low pace at a resistance of 1

    From the 5 to 7 minute mark that constitutes one sprint cycle. After that I just continue the cycles until I am finished, doing a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 just depending on how I feel that day. Today I did 6 cycles so I completed cycle 6 at the 17 minute mark at which point I just casually pedaled at a resistance of 1 until my heartrate came below 120.

    It may sound easy at first but if you do it right it can kick your ass and keep burning your calories well into the rest of your day!

    DAY 19: SQUAT - REPS

    Took 2 TF with breakfast and hit the gym up around 6PM
    PRE: 1 scoop Nitramine, 2 scoops NOXYGEN, 4 caps XFA

    SQUAT
    BAR x 5 (felt my left knee tweak but it was a non-issue)
    135 x 5
    225 x 4
    265 x 3,3,3,3,3

    WIDE STANCE GOOD MORNINGS
    135x8,8,8

    STEP UPS
    BW+100 x 15,15,15 ea. leg (I prefer these to lunges)

    OLYMPIC STANCE DEEP SQUAT CHALLENGE
    135x50 (cannot return to rack until 50 reps have been completed)

    So I went into the gym today with all intentions of having an amazing squat day. I'm not sure if its the new preworkout I'm taking (Nitramine) or what but I was just not with it at all today. The initial lift was good... all of the 265lbs squats felt fine (and surprisingly heavy). When I was doing my wide stance GMs I had a trainer come over and tell me my form was wrong and that I was going to hurt my back. I obliged him and performed the reps as he instructed... however this completely took the tensions away from my lower back and placed it all onto my hamstrings. After he walked away I performed my final set the way I had started but by this time my hamstrings were toast and I could literally feel the muscles micro-tearing as I performed each rep. Not sure if that was form, preworkout, dehydration or a combination of things but it did not feel pleasant and I immediately had concerns about the Oly squat challenge ! Step ups went fine (I prefer them over lunges because my tall has gets knee problems if I do too many lunges w/ too much weight). The rule for the Oly challenge is to not return to the rack until 50 reps are completely. I got to 25 before I had to give up. My heartrate was sky high and I was sweating profusely. I finished all 50 reps but not how I was supposed to and as light as 135 is its a mother for 50 reps.

    New Test Factor is treating me well and I'll touch on that in the video I'm filming tonight for bodybuilding/things that need work day.
