    Omega Sports Lightning Log by Phatbody


    · Age : 26
    · Sex - M or F : M
    · Height : 6' 00"
    · Weight :180, 10% Body Fat
    · Body type : Meso
    · Training Experience : I've been training since I was in high school (14-18) but didn't get serious until I was 19. I've tried several different training methods over the years from GVT to MAX OT. Over the years I've discovered that there are many different schools of thought on training and which training is the best and some people are so adamant in their thinking that they view other systems as inferior. I believe that different methods work for different people and everyone should follow what works for them.

    · Current Training Schedule / Protocol : I am currently following a GVT type training schedule.

    Mon: Chest/Back - Decline DB Press and Wide Bar Palms In Lat Pull Downs ( I don't know what to call the bar, it's the one with a handle in the circle at both ends of the bar).

    Wed: Bi/Tri - Incline Hammer Curls and Weighted Dips

    Friday: Legs/Shoulders - Squats and Bent Over Lateral Raises w/ DB.

    · Cardio Schedule/Protocol : 10 mins. of intense cardio on workout days after I finish my workout and 20-30 mins of moderate cardio on two of my off days. I have pretty good endurance and low body fat so I just try to maintain the stamina that I have.

    · Current Supplements : Joint Flex by Omega and Cissus RX by USP Labs.

    · Comparable Supplement/Product History (please be detailed) : Nitro Evolution is great! San OX and V-12 didn't do anything for me.

    · Present Goals - bulking, cutting, etc. (please be detailed) : I'm looking to add some muscle and strength. I want to work on my rear delts as they are non existent and build up my back/lats. I hope to drop a little weight around my mid section as my abs look a little soggy. I don't have any weight goals because gaining weight isn't my main goal. I'm looking for a visual difference in my physique. If I had say a weight goal I would say a 10 lbs.

    · Current Diet & Macros (please be detailed) : I eat about 4-6 times a day. I consume 2000-2500 calories a day. My break down is about 50% protein, 40% carbs and 10% fat.

    · Current Daily Water Intake : I drink about 128 ounces a day.

    Before and after pics will be post at the end of the log so they can be easily compared.

    Day 1 (Wednesday March 1, 2006)

    Training: Bi/Tri:

    Incline Hammer Curls:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    25 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 8, 8, 7, 5

    Dips
    3-0-2 Tempo
    Bodywight only @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9

    I felt good during my workout. I didn't feel overly tired at the end and I had a moderate pump. No cardio today. This is the first day I've taken Lightning and I took 8 caps about 45 minutes before my workout.

    Day 3 (Friday March 3, 2006)

    Training: Legs/Shoulders:

    Squats:
    4-0-2 Tempo
    145 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 7, 7, 7, 6, 7

    Bent Over Lateral Raises
    3-0-2 Tempo
    15 @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 8

    This was a really good workout for me. I felt great the whole way through. My legs felt really pumped and my delts had a mild pump. I started to run out of gas towards the end but that will change the more I workout.

    Day 6 (Monday March 6, 2006)

    Training: Chest/Back:

    Decline DB Press:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    50 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

    Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns
    3-0-2 Tempo
    100 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9

    Holy crap this workout was awesome! I had a huge pump going on for my chest and back. The pump was hard all the way up to my collar bone. What a fantastic workout. I don't get this kind of pump unless I'm taking something to get it and this is one of the top pump supps I've taken. I can't wait to see what my next bi/tri workout has in store for me!

    Day 8 (Wednesday March 8, 2006)

    Training: Bi/Tri:

    Incline Hammer Curls:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    25 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 8, 7

    Dips:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    Bodyweight only @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

    Again, another great workout. Huge pumps! I felt great again during my workout. Incline Hammer Curls were starting to get hard because the pump was so full. I didn't have that problem with dips. I'm going to bump up the weight next week and see what happens.

    Day 10 (Friday March 10, 2006)

    Training: Legs/Shoulders:

    Squats:
    4-0-2 Tempo
    145 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 8, 7, 6, 5

    Bent Over Lateral Raises
    3-0-2 Tempo
    15 @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9

    Today really sucked with legs. I could feel it earlier in the workout that it was going to be really tough at the end and it was. Even though it was tough I felt that I worked my legs very well so I'm happy about that. Shoulders improved a little bit. Pump again was pretty strong.

    Day 13 (Monday March 13, 2006)

    Training: Chest/Back:

    Decline DB Press:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    55 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 7, 7, 7, 7
    Increased weight by 5 lbs.

    Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns
    3-0-2 Tempo
    100 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

    It seems like my chest/back day is the best workout day so far. It could be because of the two days of rest I get over the weekend. I bumped up the wieghts for DB Press and boy did I feel it. I felt like I could do more by my Tri's said no. I'm sure that I will improve next week. I'm going to bump up the wieght for the pulldows too. Over all I felt great and felt pretty big with a nice chest and back pump.

    If you could keep an eye on any increase in weight lifted for each exercise, that would be great.

    Sure! I'll update the past posts with notations of weight increases. Lightning is really good and I like it so far. I totally see stacking this with either Thunder or some other CEE product.

    Day 15 (Wednesday March 15, 2006)

    Training: Bi/Tri:

    Incline Hammer Curls:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    30 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 8, 8, 8, 8, 6, 4, 4
    Increased weight by 5 lbs.

    Dips:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    Bodywieght + 15 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9
    Increased weight by 15 lbs.


    Another great workout. I wish I was able to increase dumbbells by 2.5lbs because I've always hated jumping up a full 5 lbs on incline hammer curls. My dips are still strong so I will increase another 15lbs. next week. I've always been strong at dips so it will be fine. I have noticed that my chest and back still feel a little pumped. They feel more full which is very morale boosting!

    Day 17 (Friday March 17, 2006)

    Training: Legs/Shoulders:

    Squats:
    4-0-2 Tempo
    145 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 7

    Bent Over Lateral Raises
    3-0-2 Tempo
    17.5 @ 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 9, 8, 8, 7
    Increased weight by 2.5 lbs.

    Today was a much better leg workout. While I didn't necessarily feel much stronger, I did feel the endurance to last through the workout. I think I will increase the weight from my next leg workout. Shoulders felt good again but I don't think I should increase the weight just yet. Again, I've noticed that the pumps seems to last for a few days after my workouts. I like it.

    Day 20 (Monday March 20, 2006)

    Training: Chest/Back:

    Decline DB Press:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    55 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 6

    Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns
    3-0-2 Tempo
    110 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 8, 6
    Increased weight by 10 lbs.

    I thought I would take the time to clarify that when I post dumbbell weights I'm taking about each individual dumbbell. So when I say I did Decline DB press @ 55 lbs, I mean I was using a set of 55 lb dumbbells.

    Anyway, I changed my DB Press technique and it made the biggest difference I've felt in a long time. It was a mixture of the Fit Show with Milos when he was taking about chest combine with some thoughts about Pavel and wondering why my triceps so burned out at the end of my chest workout. So I was doing Decline DB Press and I decided to try and squeeze the DB's together while the DB's where at the bottom of the lift. Now obviously they couldn't move because of the position they were in but it instantly snapped my chest muscles to attention. I tried to maintain the feeling to pushing the DB's together as I went through my reps. I haven't felt that kind of muscle concentration in a long time PLUS it took some of the pressure off of my triceps. I was very happy. Needless to say it was another great workout.

    Day 22 (Wednesday March 22, 2006)

    Training: Bi/Tri:

    Incline Hammer Curls:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    30 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 6, 5
    Dips:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    Bodyweight + 30 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 7, 6, 6, 5
    Increased weight by 15 lbs.

    I think I'm starting to top out as far as my biceps are concerned. As far as this cycle of GVT I think that 30 lbs. is the max. I was able to squeeze out a few more reps this time around and should be able to get a few more next week. Dips went up another 15 lbs, which I felt . I think it's important to note that while my poundages are not flying up my endurance certainly is. Even though my muscles are tired at the end of the workout, I am not. I also haven't noticed a real difference in recovery time. I guess that any increase in recovery time is off set by the increase in weight and reps!

    Day 24 (Friday March 24, 2006)

    Training: Legs/Shoulders:

    Squats:
    4-0-2 Tempo
    165 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 5
    Increased weight by 20 lbs.

    Bent Over Lateral Raises
    3-0-2 Tempo
    20 @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 8, 8, 5
    Increased weight by 2.5 lbs.

    I was on fire today. Not only did I feel good enough to increase the weight but my reps where almost dead on target. I must say that I felt like I was going to puke towards the end of my leg sets and I was sweating like a mofo. The reason for the 5 reps on the last set was because I was about to pass out. But to me that is the sign of a great leg workout! Again, increase in weight and endurance were very evident in this workout.

    Increased weight by 5 lbs.

    120 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 9, 9

    Day 29 (Wednesday March 29, 2006)

    Training: Bi/Tri:

    Incline Hammer Curls:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    30 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 10, 9, 8, 8, 7, 7, 6

    Dips:
    3-0-2 Tempo
    Bodyweight + 30 lbs. @ 10, 10, 10, 9, 9, 8, 7, 7, 6, 6

    Only minor improvements with bi/tri day. I'm at the end of the cycle so this is the perfect time to change my arm routine. I did notice that my arms are so pumped towards the end of my workout that it may be hindering me. Not sure but my arms are larger by at least an inch at the end. Too bad it doesn't last! It goes away by the next day, well not ALL the way because they are still a little pumped.

    End of Log Summary

    I really liked the product. I thought that it did everything it said it would do. I had awesome pumps and my endurance went up. It seemed like the pumps came immediately while the increase in endurance came after the first two weeks. Or at least that is when it really became noticable. I believe that this is something you will want to take with a creatine product. I felt that I was missing something in the power department so next time I try this I'm going to take some CEE with it. I would say that this is an 8 of out 10.

    Starting Weight: 180
    Ending Weight: 187
    Increase of 7 lbs.

    Starting Bodyfat: 10%
    Ending Bodyfat: 9.5%
    Decrease of 0.5%

    Total Weight Increases:

    I think that it is important to note that I was doing a GVT routine so while the weight increases may seem small, it is a very nice increase over a 4 week period.

    Decline DB: 20lbs
    Wide Grip Lat Pulldowns: 20lbs
    Incline Hammer Curls: 10lbs
    Dips: 30lbs
    Squats: 20lbs
    Bent Over Lateral Raises: 10lbs

    Unfortunately I am unable to post any pictures at this time. My means for taking digital pictures is gone, which sucks because I think that you guys would be able to see the difference between when I started and when I ended.
