  1. Day 27 - May 7

    No residual soreness from Friday's workout. Will weigh myself again on Monday as a few people at my bjj class said I look a bit bigger. Also plan on another circuit training workout and a 1-2 rep max on

  2. How all logs should be. Take notes people.

    No residual soreness today. Weight this morning was 165.5lbs.

  4. Day 31 - May 11

    Workout: 1-2 rep max
    warm up consisted of roughly half of max weight from previous workout for 2 sets of 5 reps.

    Flat bench press
    280lbs 1 rep couldn't knock out the 2nd, same results for next 2 sets
    Seated Rows
    270lbs 1 set 2 reps
    280lbs 2sets 1 rep
    Deadlifts (300lbs) 2 sets 1 rep
    Squats (330lbs) 2 sets 2 reps
    Calf Raises (330bs) 2 sets 2 reps
    Overhead barbell press (150lbs) 2 sets 2 reps
    Dumbbell curls (60lbs) 3 sets of 1 rep
    Cable tricep pushdowns (180lbs) 2 sets of 1 rep

    Not much of a strength improvement. I've decided to run this for a fukll 45 days and buy another bottle later for cutting.

    Weight has been a steady 165 the past few days. Nothing new to report.

  6. Day 38 - May 18

    Been working 13 hour days the past few days so haven't had time to post much less workout. Figure in another 2 hours of commuting and time is a premium these days. Managed to get a workout in today but had to cut the number of sets. Diet and sleep among other things has suffered, less than 4.5 hrs sleep and around 200g protein. Despite this my weight is still a steady 165. I'd sya my caloric intake has been reduced by at least 700 cals and weight is still steady. This furthers my notion that Anagen is anti-catabolic.

    Workout: Circuit training

    Flat bench press (200lbs) 14, 13, 12, 10
    Lat pulldowns (200lbs) 14, 14, 13, 13
    Seated Rows (200lbs) 14, 14, 14, 13
    Deadlifts (200lbs) 15, 14, 14, 14
    Squats (245lbs) 15, 15, 14, 14
    Calf Raises (245lbs) 15, 15, 15, 15
    Overhead dumbbell press (60lb dumbbells) 14, 14
    Barbell curls (80lbs) 15, 15
    Cable tricep pushdowns (140lbs) 15, 14

  7. hey looks like you've gone up in weight on the circuit good going log looks great. How is the mma training coming? I am stuck right now between wanting to get bigger and also have to still think about if I can cut to my fighting weight.

  8. Yeah, at 165lbs I don't think I will be fighting at 143 anymore, though I never liked being that light anyways. I currently have only competed at the amateur level so they give you lots of leeway in making weight. A fight can be scheduled at 155 but if someone comes in at 160 or 165 the other guy will usually still take the fight. Since I'll fight at 155 or 160 now I want to be at least 15lbs over the weight limit.

    I could go all out on a bulk and gain 10lbs in a month but a third wouldn't be lean mass and my cardio goes to hell. I've done it before and my mma training went to crap. I would tire in 5 mins and it's just not worth it. So I'll just increase weight slowly and it'll probably take 3 months to get where I want to be but my mma game won't suffer and I'll be at a further point in mma training then than if I tried the other method. It's hard to move up in weight without sacrificing one aspect or another so in the end you have to choose which ones are most important to you. Good luck with what route you choose.

    I'll try and post my fight cutting routine tomorrow so if anyone has any advice or modification feel free to share.

  9. Day 44 - May 24

    I've been working a lot more hours recently to get a project completed before Memorial Day weekend so as a result a lot of things have taken a back seat. Diet has been somewhat amiss as well as cardio, mma training, sleep and pratically everything else. Workouts were going well though as I haven't gone to any mma oriented classes in a week so lifting is the only stress reliever. Protein has been around 230g/day which is still above maintenance but not necessarily ideal for bulking purposes.

    In the meanwhile since I've last posted , I've completed a 1-2rep max a a circuit training workout. I didn't bother to increase the weights for either for various reasons. Therefore it's difficult to assess any strength changes, but I can state that with the additional stressors, strength has at the very least stayed the same.

    Hopefully I'll have some more time tomorrow to post a wrap-up and other pertinent info.

  10. Day 46

    Supplementation with Anagen has drawn to a close. In this period lbm has increased 4lbs with no real change in bf%. Strength increases were marginal and could be attributed to natural progression as much as supplementation. Endurance levels did improve by roughly 9% and this is likely due to the adaptogens in Anagen. I have previously supplemented with rho+bacopa and have yielded similar results. There are those who will say my lifting routine is not condusive to dramatic gains in either strength or mass and this may be true to an extent. Increased cals 500-700 over maintenance will result in a monthly gains of 3lbs lbm. Strength gains are harder to discern as they don't seem to improve in a linear manner.

    My diet has also suffered in the past week so results have been slightly hindered by this as well. But for me Anagen did not produce d-bol like gains as touted by other manufacturer's and "russian studies". For me this wasn't a great non hormonal anabolic as gains seem to be on par with what I can normally gain. This isn't necessarily he fault of said product as it's possible my training routine is geared towards full utilization of Anagen and its method of action(s). I did find that in a hypocaloric state with increased stress that there was no decline in weight or strength which is normally the case. This leads me to believe Anagen is better suited for a cut rather than a bulk. In addition there were no changes in mood or libido no water retention, oily skin, pumps, or other effects associated with increased hormone production. You don't feel like you are on anything when using Anagen, that is unless you are working out. This makes it ideal for me when cutting. I need a product to have no adverse effects especially in the last week in order for me to drop 10lbs water for weigh ins.

    In the end would I recommend this product for someone looking for a NHA bulking product? I would have to say that there are better alternatves, like Activate as I had much better strength increases but also a higher incidence of sides. Now stacking the two would probably be perfect. In fact Anagen should stack well with any nha product. For someone cutting, I would absolutely recommend it though. It won't exacerbate any unwanted sides one gets from cutting. I will run it in another month or so to see if I can drop more water weight and to gauge any chagnes in strength.

  11. Good feedback....much appreciated.
