  1. Kicking off 2017 with Iron Legion Invictus and Virtus!


    First, I would like to thank @IronLegion @bighulksmash @nostrum420 @Delsolro and any other member of the Iron Legion team. I have read great things about these two products and I am beyond excited to stack them and give my honest feedback. I have never used a Iron Legion product and excited I get to run this stack. My goal is to lean bulk. I have not received the products yet, unless they are in my mailbox now, but I wanted to get this up for when I do get the products. My dosing will be Invictus: .5ml AM + .5ml PM Virtus: .5-1ml AM, initially.

    Training

    I follow a hybrid PPL/PHAT routine. Due to the effects of Laxogenin, I may incorporate more dropsets due to increased recovery.

    Sunday - Push Hypertrophy
    Monday - Pull Power
    Tuesday - Lower Hypertrophy
    Wednesday - Off
    Thursday - Push Power
    Friday - Pull Hypertrophy
    Saturday - Lower Power

    Diet

    I carb cycle. I have two high days, two moderate days and three low days. I will post my daily diet so you can see macro breakdown and calorie breakdown. In addition, if I do not gain weight in a particular week, I increase each day by 25 cals, but adding 6 grams of carbs to each day.

    Push Hypertrophy


    Weight - 155.6

    Weight is the same from last week. I am going to increase calories by 25 each day, in the form of carbs. I am also beginning a stack of Iron Legion Invictus and Virtus today.

    Today's session was surprisingly good. I say that because my chest was a touch sore from Thursday. I hardly ever get DOMS in my chest, especially DOMS that lasts several days. Don't know what it was, but it didn't influence me, at least I don't believe it did. I also did not feel any tightness in my shoulder again! I think it is due to getting rid of behind the neck presses, an addition to my warmup and a new a new stretch I am doing post workout. Again, like last Sunday, I had a very good pump compared to the previous month or so on this particular day. I think it is because my pre workout meal is closer to training.

    Tomorrow will be interesting with how my legs feel and I have a 9x1 on deadlifts.

  11. Initial thoughts:

    The products do not smell that great. i wish they were odorless. I would suggest putting something on the mask the scent. Application is easy. I tried two different methods. One, I put the liquid on my hand and rubbed it on the area. The other way I tried was to slowly drip the liquid on the application site and rub it in that way. I think I prefer putting it on my hand first. Also, I think this would be a lot easier to apply if the liquid was not water like and more of a cream or gel. Lastly, I noticed that this leaves your hands looking greasy, make sure to run them under water after.

    Pull Power


    Today was a killer workout. Had a 9x1 going on. If you're new to my log, I programmed two 9x1 sessions, but not going for a PR. After the second 9x1, I take a deload week than attempt a new PR. My goal on the 9x1 days are to get as close to my PR as possible. My PR the deadlift is 440. I hit 435. It was an extreme grinder. I think I hitched it a little, but I'll count it. Getting to knee level was not hard, but the lockout was killer. I thought one of a few things would happen; one, I would need to drop it, two, my head was going to pop like a pimple or three, I was going to poop my pants! In 5 weeks, my next 9x1, I am going to stick with 435, since I don't want to set a new PR, but I am going to see if it goes up easier. The workup sets will be the same. I will also try to hit some higher weight on the way down.

    Everything else progressed with weight or reps. I did weighed pullups, despite being the same weight. For was great, this shows me I am getting stronger. Normally, when I do this weighted, I lack on the contraction; I do not pull myself up high enough. That was not the case here. My hamstrings are dead now. Tomorrow will be interesting.

    Ome other thing worth noting. I changed my pre workout meal, on this day, last week. Today, instead of swwet potatoes, I had white rice. Today was the first deadlift day in a long time which I did not feel like I was going to puke during any set. I may stick with white rice from now on pre workout on this day.

    not ideal

    invictus should be applied twice per day. .5ml in the AM and .5ml in the PM (apply after training, not before).

    you don't have to shower before application. there are some guys that apply td's like 2-3 times a day...

    if you workout in the AM, apply after training. then again in the early evening (3-4 hours before going to bed).

    if you workout in the PM, apply first thing in the morning. then again after training that evening (just don't do it right before bed...may leave you groggy in the morning).

    Got it. I will start this protocol tomorrow. I will have to apply 1 ml today since I am at work.

    I train in the evening. I get home around 6 and shower around 6:30. I will apply .5 after my shower in the evening and .5 in the morning when I wake up.

    I don't usually wait that long...I usually dry off, brush my teeth, put moisturizer on my face, and then apply td's. Then I wait about 5 minutes to put a shirt on.

    when I go to Phoenix to visit my family, this processes take much less time. out of shower and in 1-2 minutes I'm completely dry. Apply TD's and then they're dry in like a minute...so, humidity will matter a little.

    ah, I'd missed this.

    the smell when you first apply it is more of a combination of the components (BA an OA have the most scent). after it's absorbed, the leftover scent should be limited to the cedar wood and cypress. I know there are a ton of ladies that love this scent on men...we have received a lot of positive feedback on the scent.

    beyond that, sorry you don't like it. But, it's probably the first scent of the application that's off putting to you...please ask for some feedback on the smell of the application sites after they've dried.

    I believe @Volvo140G posted a bit of how much his wife loved the smell on him

    Push Power


    Very happy with the session today. My last 9x1, I hit 220 on flat bench, only 5 pounds off my PR. When I attempted 230 about 4 or 5 weeks ago I failed. I was feeling good today. I was planning on one set at 220. I got it, it was tough, but still smooth. I decided to go for 225. I asked for a guy to watch me. He helped me stabilize the weight at the sticky point since I was shaking a little, but I got it. I would say I could have gotten it. I think that shows progress since I was only doing small jumps. I also did 10 sets since he helped me a tad.

    I also hit heavier weight on the way down. I did 4 sets on decline close grip because someone asked me for a spot and I rested way longer than anticipated.

    Here you go. This replaced the Hack Squat in my gym a few years back. I like the machine, but miss the hack squat so much. I say reverse because I have my forehead on the back pad, so I do not have my back against anything.
