  1. Next Level Creatine with Cre02 (Sponsored)


    First off, I want to say thank you to @MySTeek for allowing me to log MST Cre02. I got the package today, and to my surprise, I also had 10 samples of ZMK, a sleeping aid. I got in the box even more and there was not one, but two bottles. I only thought it was going to be a single unit.

    What is Cre02?

    CRE-O2™ is the world’s first enteric coated, tri-phase pH delivered, stomach stable creatine, ATP & oxygen utilization support matrix. Enteric coating may allow CRE-O2™ to completely bypass destruction & byproduct conversion in the acidic environment of the stomach, remaining intact for rapid diffusion and super charged absorption in the more alkaline environment of the small intestine. No destruction or conversion in the digestion and assimilation process means big gains without the typical creatine side effects! CRE-O2™ is truly the new Gold Standard in creatine supplementation!

    My Training

    A modified PPL and 5/3/1 routine. I felt burnt out last week, so I am reducing volume. I am going to post my exact routine, and if you think there is a place where I can reduce volume, please tell me. I think I can still cut out some.

    Sunday - Push 5/3/1
    Monday - Pull 5/3/1
    Tuesday - Lower Hypertrophy
    Wednesday - Off
    Thursday - Push Hypertrophy
    Friday - Pull Hypertrophy
    Saturday - Legs 5/3/1

    Current Lifts

    Just for reference, here are my one rep maxes. I plan on logging for the first month, but continue to use this for two straight months. I may try new maxes towards the back half of the second bottle.

    Bench - 260
    OHP - 180 (some leg drive, not much)
    Squat - 385
    Deadlift - 480

    That was achieved last week

    Nutrition

    I carb and calorie cycle, I will post my daily diet.

    My Expectations

    These expectations are based on the ingredients.

    Better recovery post workout and between sets
    Better endurance
    Better mental clarity
    Better focus
    Body recomp (this is is stretch, but we will see. I will get into why at the final review when I go over all the ingredients.)

    Push Hypertrophy


    This was the first time in a long time I have gone with incline dumbbell first. I am trying something new with the first two exercises. I try to get either 12,10, or 8 reps on all three sets, depending on the week. This week is a 12 week. As you can see, I did not get 12 on the last set. Normally, I would do a rest pause, but I figured I have something to aim for next week. I need to get out of the mindset that I need to increase this by 5 pounds, for the same reps, every week. If that was possible, in theory, I would increase the weight by 260 pounds (5 pounds per week) that us not possible.

    Also, since I felt completely burnt out last week, I am trying to go lower in weights on my hypertrophy day and really focus on TUT. I am using these days as a recovery day where I do not completely push myself to the edge since I do that on the heavy days.

    Pull Hypertrophy


    I ended up doing an extra set of pulldowns at a lighter weight, 10 pounds less, after the V grip pulldowns. Reason being is I have had a hard time for the past couple of months really feeling this exercise right under my armpits, where I am targeting. I saw someone performing them like I have never seen before. Basically, straight up, legs under the knee pad as close to the weight stack as you could get to, looking up the whole time and squeezing. What I found by doing this is the keeps the elbows going straight down throughout the movement. It limited the ROM a little, the bar came down to about my mouth, but I felt it a lot more. Usually when one uses a full ROM, with good or bad form, you see the elbows go down and back. Thus got rid of the back motion and kept the arms and elbows in line with the last the entire time.

    I also looked at my 5/3/1 table for tomorrow's squats. I have 315 for my top set tomorrow. I cannot wait.

  8. Initial thoughts so far. Too soon to tell of any benefits. The capsules are easy to swallow. The one "issue" one may have is with dosing. This needs to be dosed 2 hours pre workout. Additionally, it states to dose two hours pre workout, on an empty stomach. That is pretty much impossible unless on is training fasted, but even then, I don't think they are waiting two hours to train.

    Lower Power


    Good session today. I took out paused squats to help my CNS. I think by doing six sets of squats, I don't really need another variation. I substituted with leg extensions, at a lighter weight, really focusing on a slow negative.

    I thought squatting was going to be difficult in terms of keeping my back tight. My mid back is sore from yesterday. Probably from re-inserting stretchers. Not only did I re-insert them, but I used a handle that was slightly wider than the one I normally use and it increased the ROM.

    Tomorrow is my heavy push day. For some reason, the long head of my triceps is still a little sore. Curious to see if this has an impact.

  10. For what it's worth, I felt like intra set recovering was a little quicker than normal on the squats. I rested as long as I normally would, but did not feel like I needed to. Usually on the 5 rep weeks, I get winded after the second set, but that was not the case today. Also, I did some cardio post workout, I have been doing this for legs for a few weeks now. Only ten minutes, but my pace felt a little quicker.

    Push Power


    Weight - 175.2

    Weight is down 4.6 pounds from last week.

    I thought my weight was going to be down given how easy I got my belt on yesterday. I was surprised it was that much lower though since I didn't take a good poop this morning.

    Despite the weight loss, pushing went up. I really wanted to do a joker set on military press, but I went with my head and did not. Again, I am trying to drop some volume. Even though I lost weight, I am going to keep calories the same this week and see what happens. I think I dropped that much because I am doing a little cardio after each session.

    Also, if you have followed my log, you'll notice incline bench is lower by 10-15 pounds. I dropped the weight a few weeks ago because I really wanted to rest a touch less, but mainly focus on a slower negative.

    The number you see in the parenthesis is either a rep change or weight change from the previous week. I did not do this last week because I switched training logs.

  12. Again, felt like I didn't have to rest as long between sets. Endurance on cardio was definitely increased. I was able to go a further distance in my 10 minutes post workout and I didn't even try to increase the intensity.

    Great start so far! No, you don't NEED to take 2 hours before and on an empty stomach. However, our data show that this loading dose will get it saturated faster. Once you have it saturated 1-2 weeks from now, dosing time does not matter. Please feel free to play around with your dosage 1-2 weeks from now. Given my 10+years with Cre02, I suggest taking it 1 hr pre-w/o with food (if possible). Have fun!

    The 2 hours isn't an issue, now. When I go back to work in a few weeks, I will go for 45-60 minutes pre workout.

    Pull Power


    Really good session today. I barely felt any discomfort in my lower back and when I did, I was only on my last warm up set. On the 3+ set, I was debating whether to go for the fifth rep. I did. I heard someone behind me say pull, pull, pull as I was getting through the sticky point. I was also uncomfortable while doing deals. There was this kid, probably 7-9 feet in front of me, diagonally to the left just watching me the entire time.

    Today was also the first deadlift session in my new Sabo Deadlifting Shoes. I like them a lot more than Chuck Taylors.

    I also incorporated looking up on pull ups and the pulldowns. I definitely felt them in my back a lot more.

    Legs Hypertrophy


    I've been tinkering around this this session for about a month now. I think I have something in plan that works. For the longest time, I was doing leg press first. But after I hurt my lower back, and even after it "recovered", I felt tightness on the right side with heavy weights on the leg press. Now, I switched that to the end, which has forced me to go light, and the discomfort is barely there. I go lighter on the extensions than I could go. I just have really slow negatives and rest only 60 seconds. I am thinking about doing an 8x8 and even GVT with extensions and lowering the volume somewhere else. I do a lot of quads this day, because I hit hamstrings harder on the heavy day.

    Off from the gym tomorrow. Since this is my real last week of vacation, I am going to treat myself to a deep tissue massage.

  20. nice effort on your workouts. On leg day you go back and forth between quads and hamstrings. I do that sometimes, I used to do hams first than quads or quads first then hams and still do switch it up sometimes, recently back and forth like this. do you do warm up sets? like on leg extension I see 145 lbs -4 sets

    I started with pulldowns today. I used the form I discovered last week. I felt pretty much every single rep in my lats and not in my forearms pr biceps until the last set and the last few reps. My biceps felt stronger too, which makes me think I was pulling with the lats more.

    Yes, I will usually alternate muscle groups when working them directly. It allows me to use a little more weight.

    I do warm up before all my first exercises, I just don't write them down.

    Lower Power


    Good session today. I think I could have hit a 4th rep on the joker set, but I did not have a spot and did not want to get stuck.

    On leg extensions, I performed cluster sets, my first time ever. I really liked them. I may incorporate these into other areas of my training. Just so you know what you're looking at the set is in (), so if you see two sets of (), that means I did two sets. The number of reps in the () is the amount of reps I got for each cluster.

    I am more than likely going to increase calories tomorrow.
