day 21 complete
Tuesday - morning cardio only 45 min. - drank 1 serving during - by then end I was full of energy. Nothing special to report - same results occuring, no DOMS, full energy, constant pumps.
On a side not last night I drank an extra serving when I woke up at 2am - I am not sure if that was the greatest idea - I fell back to sleep but at 4am I was up and ready to go - the gym doesnt open till 6am so I was wide awake wayy to early.
I think this is something you should keep away from bedtime when mega-dosing just so you can get some rest.

Day 22 complete -
Wed - Tris/cardio
Workout went extrememly fast today, I added 10lbs to overhead tri extensions and 10lbs to skull crushers - that pleases me to say the least. Did 45 mins of cardio afterwards, usually just 30, I had a lot of energy to work off. Pumps still great.
05-01-2006, 09:46 AM
Day 23, 24, 25 Complete
Thursday - Legs - added 20 lbs to my squat this week, recovery was great, decreased resting down to 2mins. I didnt' feel like lifting thursday either - just one of those days but it went very well overall.
Friday - Arms/shoulders - great pumps, veins starting to come out nicely in the bicep ( I just need a tan now) - high energy all workout. did 45 min cardio afterwards (usually 30min) didn't feel like stopping.
Sat - 5 servings - 45 min cardio only - 12 hrs painting a garage. Paintings not hard of course but moving, up/down a ladder all day and basically being on my feet all day, compared to my usual regiment of sitting - the day went great.
High energy during cardio and throughout the day, no DOMS from thursdays legs at all - it also didnt' even feel like I did arms and shoulders the day before.
Again - being 8 weeks into dieting, I have constant energy to do anything, I am adding lean mass and decreasing a fair amount of bodyfat (I'll have calculations later) - also my mood is pretty good, hunger is usually nill.

Week 8 - 4/31
LB - F= 18 UF= 16.5
RB - F= 18 UF= 16.5
C - F= 44.25 UF= 42.25
LT - F= 27.25 UF= 26.5
RT - F= 27.25 UF= 26.5
LC - F= 17 UF= 16.75
RC - F= 17 UF= 16.5
well this week wasn't that great - though losing .3% of BF is ok I know I shoud of been on my 1% average, if not higher. I broke down last tuesday and ate 5 extra bagels as well as some strawberries. Certainly not bad or unhealthy but that's 1000 extra calories overall in the week - little stuff counts, that's why dieting sucks.
2365.lbs Vs. 235.5lbs
Week 8 lean mass = 210.54lbs Week 7 lean mass = 210.73lbs
240l.5bs vs. 239.5lbs
week 8 lean mass = 214.12 Week 7 lean mass = 214.29
I am comparing both sets of weights as today I know I will probably weight 239 or so....last week I was 240-241.5 all week - since I was moving all day saturday - theres my water loss. The lighter lbs is probably more accurate but keeping all things constant I'll keep the higher weights for a while.
Not much change from last week to this week. Small increase in chest, 1.4 inch decrease in waist. 1lb lost is accurate.
Energy was great all week as well as recovery and pumps. EXCELL seems to be the missing piece of the puzzle, an awesome supplement.

Day 26 - complete
Sunday - chest/shoulders -
Great workout!! - added 10lbs to my bench, pumps where insane yesterday, fealt like I wanted to explode. energy was high as usual went home and mowed the lawn afterwards, booooring....
I only drank 3 servings during my workout and 1 for later during the Sopranos.
Today is my last day last 3 servings, not even more like 2.3 - saving it for the workout. It's ok though more is on the way just dont' know when it will be here.
I will write up a full one month evaluation tomorrow.
05-02-2006, 11:25 AM
Day 27 complete - 1 month Mega Dosing done - no more EXCELL .
Monday - Back - only had 3 servings during my workout - none during the day. I got some bad news right before it was time to work out - that on top with an annoying work moooonday made for a ****ty mood. I forgot about it during my workout and it went well overall. My Energy was not quite as high but I still fealt pretty good overall.
This morning - Tuesday Cardio fealt like crap, I didnt' feel like doing it and it fealt like I had to drag myself there, no good - the past 4 weeks it seemed as though once I drank a little EXCELL I was wide awake no problem, ready for hrs of cardio.
I am waiting for the next batch so I'll probably start it on Sunday to see how a week off feels.

4 Weeks before EXCELL VS. 4 weeks after.
4 week results BEFORE EXCELL -
5.54lbs of fat lost
2.74 Lbs of lean mass gained
2.6% BF lost
4 weeks AFTER EXCELL
7.43 lbs fat lost
4.93 lbs lean mass gained
3% bf lost
**If I didnt' break down and have the extra 1000 calories in bagels last week , BF% & lbs would be a little lower I think** My bad
Overall that's 2lbs of extra fat lost as well as 2lbs lean mass gained all while in a calorie deficeit. Certainly not normal compariing it to last year.
The benefits of having increased recovery and higher energy is worth it alone, getting rid of hunger pains while dieting is a pretty nice bonus as well.
The EXCELL is IMO a great addition to just your diet as well as other supplements - I feel having the excess supply amino acids really fills in all the little gaps that you cannot get with diet alone - no matter how much protein you consume.
From the beginnig you notice that I was taking just powerfull/Cissus - that alone feels great I added v-12 during my 4th week - that increased the pumps and vascularity - stregth was still nice. ( I added all these supplements alone and together last year to evaluate the differenced they made, so I am not new to those previous products) - adding the EXCELL is where I fealt like I wanted too - the high energy seemed to really accenuate my pumps - it made them feel harder and they got more intense through each rep which in turn made it feel awesome. Speeding up the recovery let me keep the pumps and the feeling never left through the workout - before it went up and down.
A week off then back on should really give me a good reminder - I was startign to get used to those wonderful feelings - so far 2 days without I certainly dont' feel bad, just don't feel "ready to go" like I did last week. could just need more sleep too - it's been real busy lately.

Great log man. Not to knock you or anything but are you sure you did your lean mass and bodyfat gains and loses correctly. With the 8 weeks you have listed (before excell and after) you gained 7.67 pounds of lean mass in 8 weeks all while losing 12.97 pounds of body fat. If you did that for a year you would gain 49.85 pounds of lean mass a year all while decreasing bodyfat.....I dont think that is quite possible...Originally Posted by Pfunk47
Just thought I would point that out. Good detailed log though
05-03-2006, 12:21 PM
The math is correct - In the past two weeks I have not gained any lean mass - actaully lost .16 lbs, hehe.
I factored in for water weight big time because if you look at week 1 vs. Week 8 by stricly numbers then...
17.74 lean lbs gained - now that is a tough one to believe.
Fat loss is dead on - 2lbs a week is damn good for natural and I am 1.61 lbs average a week, doesnt' get much better unless your over 15%.
You are correct about doing this over a year - impossible to add that much lean mass - during the rest of dieting I don't expect too much more gain - you seemd to gain a few lbs of lean mass yourself and your lower BF% than I so theorectically I should gain more when the new batch arrives keeping all things constant but of course everyone has a plateau.
Good luck in your show !!

So far I have plateued in lean mass gained - this weeks stats will be the confirmation - BF% continuing like it should ( I stayed away from the bagels this week )
05-04-2006, 07:35 PM
3 days so far with no EXCELL
Thursday - legs
Great workout considering the day I had but by the time straight leg Dl was over I was not too happy about Leg press next. My energy was ok but certainly am lacking that extra boost I seemed to have from EXCELL. I kept my sets about 2 min apart and it faired well.
The most noticeable difference so far is lagging energy near the end of my workouts and I could use a few more minutes to recover as the last reps (in my 3rd & 4th set) seem much harder.
In the first run of mega-dosing that was the most obvious result - great ending reps each set.
I have my new 2 kilos sitting here and I swear I hear it talk to me when I get near it - drink me drink me
2 more days - tomorrow and sat will be the clincher - if I am sore on sat from legs today like I used to be before EXCELL than my hyposthesis is correct - I also expect to be dragging more ass tomorrow/Sat as my calories are much lower friday.
to be continued......
05-05-2006, 12:39 PM
Day 4 - no EXCELL
My glutes from last nights legs are on fire today - I added 90 lbs to my leg press and kept SLD at 305x8 - having not been sore for 4 weeks was nice - this is definetly noticable and something EXCELL aids in subsiding.
I also was sooo tired this morning when I woke up - felt like my body was drained - nothing besides cessing EXCELL has changed - took about 30 min to get up and ge going like normal - another noticeable thing EXCELL prevents. On EXCELL I would litterly wake up and be ready to go in less than 5 mins (meaning being fully awake and ready mentally/physically to attack the day) - makes dieting not feel so bad too.
Tonight is tris/ 30 min cardio - easy night.
05-05-2006, 12:44 PM
05-09-2006, 09:46 AM
day 5 no EXCELL
Sat - morning Cardio
Today sucked big time - I woke upo and felt like I had been hit with a ton of bricks - I felt as if I was dieting My legs where killing me - DOMS was very present. Took me a while to get going with the cardio - no motivation and my energy was null. Besides the absence of EXCELL nothing else has changed. I was not a happy camper.
05-09-2006, 09:54 AM
Week 9 - 5/7
LB - F= 18 1/8 UF= 16.5
RB - F= 18 UF= 16.5
C - F= 44.5 UF= 43
LT - F= 27.5 UF= 26.5
RT - F= 27 1/8 UF= 26.25
LC - F= 17 UF= 16.5
RC - F= 17 UF= 16.5
Not a bad week overall - lost .6% BF and 1 lb. It seems as though .5% is average loss when not on EXCELL - The previous week I broke down, like I said, had 1000 extra calories, lost only .3% - this week perfect .6%
During Mega-dosing - I was at an average of about 1% loss a week - Fat loss is about to start slowing down a little now that I am at the 10% mark - I will make some changes when neccesary so I can keep the fire burning but if the next round of Mega-Dosing is like before - I could possibly be at 7% in 4 weeks.
Mega-Dosing ROUND 2 - started Sunday 5/7
05-09-2006, 09:59 AM
Mega-Dosing Round 2 - 5/7
Sunday - Chest
I downed 1 serving during the morning and 3 during the workout - then 2 servings for the rest of the day.
Excellent workout - I could Instantly feel the difference from adding the EXCELL (maybe it's all in my head ) I was certainly not 100% energentic like I felt last time but I also think it will take a day or two for the amino's to fill and be in excess within the body.
05-09-2006, 10:10 AM
Round 2 - Day 2
Monday - Back
I only slept 4 hrs the night before so... I was not to energetic all day but it seems as though the EXCELL can really perk you up even in sleep deprivation. The workout overall went very well - felt very strong and all the soreness has gone away - it's literally a night and day difference.
I plan to catch up on some sleep tonight - I think that will get me right back to feeling great tomorrow.
This morning when I woke up for Tuesday cardio - I was up a lot faster than I was all week last week - still a little slow but it's that same feeling I had in round 1 - instant energy.
1 serving during cardio - this cardio session felt quick.
05-11-2006, 12:13 PM
Day 3 - Round 2 complete
Wed - Tris/cardio
Awesome day !! - My energy I missed has returned, I still need to catch up on a little sleep but overall I feel much more energetic again now that I am back on EXCELL. I blew through my workout - It felt like I didnt' need to rest at all.
It's getting hard NOT to drink more than a gallon before my workout it just so freakin tasty.
Tonight is legs - I am excited - I expect no DOMS friday/sat
05-11-2006, 12:49 PM
What flavor you get Pfunk? I ordered some strawberry for and hope it tastes as good as the fruit punch did and I cant wait for it to get here. Just gonna try something different ya know!
05-11-2006, 01:11 PM
I stayed tried and true with the fruit punch - I like many flavors but for something that is taken all the time I am not sure how much I could handle other flavors - if lemon taste like lemonade I might be able to swing that for a good summer treat.
+ I LOVE Kool-aid and since this taste just like it I am biased.

Day 4, 5 round two of EXCELL
Thursday - legs - nice workout, felt real strong all the way through - I fealt like I had a fair amount of energy but really my body fealt flat - I had nice pumps but I still just fealt flat as pancake - mental I guess
Friday - Arms/shouders - amazing workout - upped all my weights 5lbs and completed every set no problem, I think I could of possibly added another 5 lbs and been ok. No DOMS at all from legs, didnt' even feel like I did them.
Now Friday I took 9 servings - 6 throughout the day and 3 more in the evening (I went out with some friends to see bad boy bill and Richard humpty vission in house connection 3 - Chicago/LA house DJ's for anyone who cares ) - I drank about half before we went to the show - danced my ass off then - drank the rest on the way home from the show - while everyone else was drunk and passing out on the way home - I was still full of energy (dieting, last day of the week which means calories are at there lowest, workout earlier in the day then dancing for 2-3 hrs on and off - yes I still felt awesome)
by the time me and my girl got home it was 4:30 am and I went to bed about 5 - woke up at 1pm then went and did some Sat cardio - without the EXCELL I could not of did this and still fealt great - no way at all - simply impressive !!!
05-15-2006, 11:30 AM
Day 6 - round 2 EXCELL
Sat - Cardio - early afternoon - 30 min only
do to the evening before and all the dancing plus I failed to mention I never got my last meal of the day in - I only did 30 min - certainly fasted for wayyyy to long.
amazingly I felt awesome - once I got into it I easily could of went all 45 - sipped 2 servings during - finished it one the ride home.
05-20-2006, 11:59 AM
Sorry - Long week - let me catch up
Week 10 - 5/14
LB - F= 18 1/8 UF= 16.25
RB - F= 18 UF= 16.25
C - F= 44.25 UF= 43
LT - F= 27 UF= 26.5
RT - F= 27 UF= 26.25
LC - F= 17 UF= 16.5
RC - F= 17 UF= 16.5
Weak !!!! - I am not very happy with this weeks results - not really a change from the previous - my fault though, the huge plate of spaghetti and bread I ate sat night had had to have some affect. It was a little more than a good cheat - loaded with sausage & meat...bad bad but ohh so good. This week I will not cheat
Energy and pumps have returned fully to where they where when I stopped the first round - all soreness is gone as well
05-20-2006, 12:17 PM
Day 7,8, 9, 10, 11, 12 - round 2
Sunday - chest - it was a great workout, fealt very strong and blew through the workout.
Monday - Back - high energy added 10lbs to cable rows - I was happpy about that - good energy and recovery as what is becoming the "usual" feeeling from EXCELL
Tuesday - cardio - easy - fealt good all day
Wed - Arms/shoulders - finally reached arnold presses 4x8 at 75lbs - usually the last two sets where real hard at the end - passed that plateau - made the workout that much better.
Thursday legs- blew through legs at a record time - something like 35 mins - I was drained at the end but I added an extra serving of EXCELL in my post workout drink an I was doing much better by 8:30pm
Friday- Tris - I woke up drained and it was a real long day - I didn't have much energy but....it's also my lowest calories day - end of the weak and I am getting around 9% bf so....the EXCELL helped get me in gear by workout time - went very well overall. No DOMS from legs the day before - the energy and abscence of DOMS is awesome - really makes a night and day difference.
Sat.- Cardio - jsut got back - did 55 mins as I lost track of time - went real well....today I am not doing much, resting might change my rear brakes but ohh how I hate drum brakes...
This week was perfect in dieting and I will not have a cheat today - if I am not at 9% tomorrow then some tweaks will be made. So far though the EXCELL is keeping me going very strong I can really feel he difference from being on and off - even if it was only one week off.
I also Start mega-dosing Cissus tomorrow for USP Labs - that will be a seperate log but I will note that in the fourthcoming weeks.
I really want a - hehe maybe 3 or 4
