Blaze's All-Natural "better results than your hormone cycle" Log...

Page 2 of 4 First 1234 Last

  1. Unfortunately, I'm one day behind schedule because BigVrunga talked me into eating pizza and missing my workout today. To make up for this, he gave me sexy pictures of his girlfriend (literally). For the rest of this cycle though, I'm gonna stay on track and avoid bad influences.

    P.S. I know I sometimes start reading a log, and get bored halfway through and start skimming. In an effort to appeal to the typical 'skimmer' I've decided to bold all the important stuff in my rambling...lol.
    That's a great idea bro. Nothing worse than guy keeping a log who just rambles on about stuff like teeth!

    BTW, I thought of you while I just polished off the last of the pizza a moment ago - that great euphoric rush from the massive influx of carbs...mmm.mmmm..mmmm.

  2. Day 9 Ė Summary of Results So Far

    Overall, Iím really enjoying this stack. All the benefits over regular creatine are great, no frontloading, no bloating, etc. Iím only a week in and canít wait to see what happens for the rest of my cycle. Here are my results so far:

    Positives:


    Weight Gain: Iím up 2 pounds in a week. I waited until today to weigh myself because I didnít want the pizza from day 6 to affect my weight. My measurements are consistent because I eat the same thing and workout at the same time every single day (except on leg day).

    Increased Vascularity: My veins are popping out more than before, especially in my forearms. The effects arenít as pronounced as while on IGF-1, but itís noticeable.

    Pumps: Especially in my calves and triceps! I literally have to stretch after every exercise just to keep going. I dislike the calf pumps because itís really messing with jogging because itís almost painful, but whatever.

    Increased Endurance: Iím able to pull off a few more reps during every single exercise. Normally by the end of my workout Iím half dead, but on CVM and AE2 I feel like I can keep going for a few more sets. Iíve thrown in an extra set here and there but try not to b/c I donít wanna pay for it the next day.

    Increased Intensity: My gym intensity is always very high, but these products have helped me on days Iím dragging. Sometimes when I feel like Iím gonna have a bad workout, I just take the day off, but lately this hasnít been a problem. Even if Iím lethargic, after taking CVM Iím ready to go.

    Negatives:

    No major strength increase: My strength hasnít gone up much more than it normally did before the supplements, which is definitely disappointing. I have been able to pull off a few more reps during each set, so I think itís only a matter of time before strength increases but it still sucks. This is a big thing for me but as long as I keep gaining weight, Iíll get over it. Weíll see what happens.

    No noticeable sleep benefits: Many have noticed crazy vivid dreams while using Arginine E2 Matrix. I am a very light sleeper and often wake up throughout the night. Itís to the point now where I often take melatonin just so I wonít wake up. I was hoping the AE2 would help me have a deeper/better sleep, but it hasnít really had an impact on my sleep.

  6. J..How has the 'come down' been on these two supps..I believe both of them are supposed to give you that pre-WO kick and some Arginine and CEE supps end up kicking you in the ass in terms of jitters and shakiness later...Have you experienced any of this? Or has it just been a nice level boost?

    I'm definately getting the pre-wo kick that you mentioned but it doesn't really have an effect on me outside of the gym. No jitters or shakiness at all.

  8. Log is lookin good J! Make sure you keep us updated regularly. Im looking in holding off on my next AAS cycle to maybe run something similar to this.

    By the way, sweet sig!!

  9. Nice log! Okay, you deserve a gift for your troubles. BRB.

  15. Day 12:

    Today was chest/abs day for me. I'm happy to report that my strength has finally increased!! I put up higher numbers for both bench press and incline bench press. Below I listed my flat bench numbers for my last two workouts. It might be important to note that I never exceed 10 reps in a set, if I feel like I have another rep or two left in me, I just up the weight next set.

    Last week:
    Set 1: 220x10
    Set 2: 225x10
    Set 3: 225x10
    Set 4: 230x9

    This week:
    Set 1: 225x10
    Set 2: 225x10
    Set 3: 235x9
    Set 4: 242.5x7

    K guys, this update will be a little short. I have to get back to writing a paper due tomorrow morning. Hopefully I wonít have to pull an all-nighter. =\

  16. Good to see that your strength is starting to increase bro!! Keep it going.

    Thanks idunk. My routine consists on a "heavy" week and a "light" week. The only two exercises that are currently consistent between the two weeks are Flat bench press and squats. I've got leg day coming up soon, so hopefully my squat goes up also!

    I feel you on that J. For me it's always hard to guage strength because I rotate my exercises, and change my TUT..So it's hard to remember if your strength is coming or not.

  19. I see a lot of product logs where people say things like "I see myself using product X again in the future, etc." Well I'm planning on ordering more today so that I have more available before it runs out. I really LOVE this stuff.

    My paper was moved back. Apparently it's been moved back for some time now, but I wasn't informed since i dont attend class. Looks like i won't be pulling that allnighter tonight so I'll still be on track for lifting tomorrow. Gonna go play some xbox 360 and slack off now!

  20. Glad to hear the products are working out great for you man!! Personally, I like Cre-Ethyl-Thunder. I hear you guys on the gauging of strength Im the same way...I switch up my routine quite a bit , going back and forther between TUT and MAX-OT styles of training.. Its been working great, but I'm more into hypertrophy at the moment I guess. That and I need to start bringing a notebook to the gym w/me again

    Wheres my points? I know where you live!

  22. Forgive!! Forigive!!

    awwwww yeah!

  24. Day 18:

    Well I'm 2/3s done with these products. Here is another quick summary of the benefits of CVM Xtreme and AE3 Matrix thus far.

    Weight gain: Today I weighed in at 198lbs giving me a 4lb weight increase since I first started. Diet and training have been consistent throughout the entire period I've been on the CVM Xtreme and AE2 Matrix. I’m going to hold off on taking any actual measurements until the very end of this log.

    Strength: Strength has gone up for both my flat bench press and squats this week, the only two exercises which stay consistent between my light and heavy weeks. I will be doing bench again tomorrow (technically later today since it's past midnight), so I'll report back further on this.

    Intensity: As I mentioned before, if I think I’m going to have a bad workout, I just take the day off. Lately this hasn’t been a problem. Even if I’m dragging, after taking the CVM I’m always good to go and have a great workout.

    Muscle fullness: Possibly my most favorite benefit from the supplements next to weight gain. The worked muscles stay full and hard throughout the entire day. Since its summer I’m wearing a lot more sleeveless shirts and tank tops. Its hard to resist throwing in a couple bicep/triceps supersets. I must admit I have been guilty of this once or twice.

    Pumps: I still haven’t decided how I feel about this category. The pumps are very intense and in the gym I love it! However, I’ve basically given up on using the treadmill or jogging. My calves just get too damn pumped to continue longer than 6-8 minutes. I’ve recently switched over to stationary bikes and have not had any major problems with this since then.

  25. Blaze great to see your results on strength and weight I am starting day 6 on my E2 matrix

    Just like you my endurance has been great. Pumps should be kicking in soon after chest my whole upper body kind of felt full the whole day arms and back too.
    Can't weight for next week when I do a muscle after a full week on. BTW I am eating at maintenance or just above with 1-2 cardio sessions a day so any weight gain will be very good weight

    Keep up the good work and keep us posted
