Cissus/Powerfull MegaDosing w/Anagen
Hey everybody. Never done a log before. Thought I would try and do one because I am going to take this stuff anyways and I thought I would just try and help everybody else out just like all the other logs did for me. And for everyone who has had great logs with USP/Scivation products thank you (you all know who you are, i probably posted at least once in there lol). Mullet if your reading this your logs were great so I am going to steal your format if thats ok with you.
R Arm: 15"
R Quad: 23"
BF%: Around 14% (via DEXA scan)
I adopted the DC training style, there is a lot to explain along with it, but strength pretty much increases very well in this program so hopefully it will continue to keep going up with this program. I love this traing style and Beelze and Glen would concur (although as you can tell by my stats i do not compare to those two)
Gain as much as possible but most importantly maintain my current bf%. I would be just as happy with lowering my body fat % and just gaining a few lbs, i want this to be a very clean bulk.
Like I said, I train DC style.
I will eat 1.5 g of protein per lb of lean body mass, so in my case this will be 242 grams. The DC method of eating is eating the protein first, then using carbs (and I might have some healthy fats in there) to satisfy hunger, so that is what I do, I try to eat instinctively but I do log all of it on fitday. Regardless My protein consumption is constant through the week, and usually my workout days are pretty high in carbs and my rest days (which are usually just low intensity cardio days) are medium with carbs. Then I will avoid them usually after about 5 or 6 and just stick to veggies.
And now enter mullet's log set up...
weight: will weight my self in about 4 wks. Dont like to weigh myself too much.
Mood/Well Being/Positive Aggression
Anagen: 5 caps a day
Cissus: 3/3/3/3 on workout days/Off Days 2/2/2
Powerfull: 4 (preworkout)/2/2 Off Days/ 2/2
and I know I havent listed that I will be taking this, but I will be taking 2 caps of sesamin (1 cap morning and evening) just because I feel it has helped me in the past with keep bf low with keeping kcals high.
If anybody has any questions please feel free. I plan to update at least on every workout day.
- 06-04-2006, 10:25 PM
Should be interesting. I hear from a lot of people that strength increases quite nicely while using Powerfull.
- 06-05-2006, 12:05 AM
Goodluck with your log. I'll be following and starting a similar log shortly.
06-05-2006, 12:33 AM
lol..Yeah, you robbed it straight up, effect headings and everything..lol That's cool I like organized logs
Just keep the colour coating to moi..hehe
06-05-2006, 11:20 AM
was thinking of doing the same thing... goodluck
06-05-2006, 11:27 AM
Thanks everybody, I already worked out today, nothing to report, typical first day i guess.
Edit:Will post weights later to have a guidline of how strength increases...
06-05-2006, 06:04 PM
Used Powerfull around 6 months ago, decent results. Will be interested in following yours.Originally Posted by Hbs6

ok Today was an "A" Day. One thing I will say is I didnt sleep well last night (with none of this stuff added in yet obviously, but just making sure ya know) and I was lifting around 7:45 this morning, felt a little lethargic, wasnt used to lifting that early again. So I couldnt push the weight up as well as usual. Oh well, enough excuses
Oh, and this excludes warm ups.
Incline Dbell- 75's- 6, 4, 3 Rest pause
Hammer Shoulder Press- 130- 8, 4, 3 Rest Pause
Tricep Pushdown- 130- 9, 5, 4 Rest Pause
Close Grip Pull Up with V handle- BW- 7, 3, 3 Rest Pause
Bentover Row- 115 (lots of control) 11
20 min Cardio Incline walk 60-70% max heart rate
Oh and I should probly say that on the last "Set" of each rest pause I do a negative. Most of the time for the negative I just control the weight, which is usually 4-6 seconds, usually longer with bis/tris. Then explosive positive.
Calories today: 2871 Fat: 64 Carb: 335 Protein: 248 hope get more in on next weight training day...
06-08-2006, 09:06 AM
OK sorry, here is yesterdays workout, work was reeeaaall busy, so I will post my weights and then go hit the cardio...
B Day (all followed with extreme stretching)
S Bar Curls: 75-12, 5, 4 w/neg
W Curl 75-12
Standing Calf Raise 235 8 (Explosive +, 5 sec neg, 15 sec Stretch...its excrutiating)
Squat Press 325-20
15 min light cardio
After coming off a week off, from the last time I did this workout all my numbers are up, but i still feel like I am getting back into the swinf of things a litte. Should be a good workout friday.
Libido: I feel like ever since I lossed a **** ton of wieght in high school (not the healthiest way either, ran the **** our of myself), my libido has been down a little bit ever since then. BUt lately I think it has been going up a little, probly a little placebo. And all the women I work with are hot so that should help.
Mood/Well Being/Positive Aggression: Dont feel as tired lately. No aggression as of yet or anything.
Pumps/Hardness/Vascularity Little bit better pumps in the gym. Noticed a vein right above my right hipflexor, usually there when I get my bf much lower so i might be dropping bf, or water or both.
Focus/Workout Intensity- pretty damn intense yesterday, but stll getting back into it.
Sleep: Decent. I feel like I get by with just 8 hrs and I dont want anymore. Like I wake up pretty awake.
Additional Comments: None as of far. But i just feel better in general lately. Cant wait for this to really kick in.
06-08-2006, 11:23 AM
This looks like an impressive combo you got there. Really excited to see results!

06-09-2006, 02:58 PM
yeah I hear ya, thats the way I used to do it. Its placed in this order for DC style. For example, back thickness is always last, so when you put max effort into your deads you should be so tired that it wouldnt be feasible to continue working out. Like on days that I do legs, hacks/leg press/squat press, all done last. I know it doesnt make sense but I am sure liking it.
06-09-2006, 03:05 PM
Oh I know. I do the same routine man, just a few alterations. I just found there wasn't much point in tiring my posterior delts/arms out on such small muscles to end up not getting as much out of heavy deads.Originally Posted by Hbs6
06-09-2006, 03:41 PM
i am not saying your wrong, but i really feel that its almost more of a mental thing "that you are too tired to deads or whatever after those other bodyparts, i dunno, i think this is just a totally opinionated subject lol, were both right...
06-09-2006, 06:25 PM
Yeah me either. I have lagging biceps bad and my lats are strong as ****, my damn biceps wimp out long before my lats do, I could never do a secondary muscle first.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier
06-09-2006, 06:33 PM
Yeah I dont do bi's on back day cuz of that.Originally Posted by LakeMountD

Additional Comments: Just waiting for this stuff to hit me a little more. I am sure it should be this wk sometime.

i ordered the same powerfull/cissus-anagen. i also got reloaded and should get it tommorow. but i am dissapointed its taking so long to kick in. keep loggin like to see what results i might get.
06-14-2006, 07:24 AM
well, its only been a wk and a half, that really isnt that long a time. So we'll see.
06-14-2006, 04:25 PM
your right bottle says 10 days-just got mine. going to do recomended doses to start-with the rebound thats a lot of pills. keep loggin updates
06-14-2006, 04:29 PM
Cant update weights, @ work right now, but was much more full today, pumps are still lasting even though I finished my workout @ 9 this morning.
06-14-2006, 06:03 PM
ok here we go...
Flat DBell-80-8, 4, 3
Cybex Shoulder Press-120-6, 3,2 (would like to get these higher, i think i increased weight too fast)

Reverse Grip Pulldown- 150-, 9, 4, 3

All followed with stretches, no time for cardio, will do cardio tomorrow fasted though...
Libido: Up a little more
Mood/Well Being/Positive Aggression: Had some aggression I think in the gym today, i really hit it hard.
Pumps/Hardness/Vascularity:Lately (for some reason i feel a little self concious about myself sometimes, so i cover up lol) I have been lifting in long sleeves. But today once I was a couple excercises into my workout went sleeveless and I looked more defined from the last time I lifted without sleeves. Veins were out and are still out right now. I was pleasently surprised. I looked, well, bigger Cant wait to get to weigh myself in a couple wks.
Focus/Workout Intensity- Great workout, weights felt heavy but I pushed them well.
Sleep: Again, i get out of bed easier in the morning. I sleep very well. COnsistantly getting 8 hrs, I would love more but its tough with school and work.
Additional Comments: By golly I think its kickin in...
06-17-2006, 09:05 AM
Yesterday's B Day (all followed with extreme stretching)
Hammer Preacher: 80-10, 4, 3 w/neg

Seated Calf Raise 90 9 (Explosive +, 5 sec neg, 15 sec Stretch)
Seated LC-125-9, 4, 3
Squat Press 550-8
LEg Press 340-20
No time for cardio (damn work and classes)
Libido: didnt drop but not any increase as of right now, I wouldnt mind a little kick there though
Mood/Well Being/Positive Aggression: Feelin pretty good lately even though all i do at the moment is class/work/gym, not too much time for anything else but I have great energy in the gym, and I do get 8 hours of sleep at least on most nights, but I notice its very rare that I get tired @ work now. Like that afternoon wall I usually hit isnt there. Take that for what its worth.
Pumps/Hardness/Vascularity: Legs were quite pumped (I do do 20 reps to failure, lol, but regardless) after my last set. More veins showing up.I ate a **** ton of carbs yesterday so I am holding some water so that might hinder really getting a good reading on this.
Focus/Workout Intensity- Great workout but could always be better. ITs tough to see if a supplement helps with that...this stuff by no means gives me great energy, the pumps are another story though
Sleep: NOthing better to report yet, but its by no ways been effected neg.
Additional Comments: Nothing really, just waiting to see how much weight I will gain. 2 wksish and I will weigh again...
edit: forgive me for the typos...i am in a bit of a rush and I must go get my AM cardio in...Hope this log is helping people. Let me know if you need more detail or anything. I really want this to help people like some of the other logs did for me.
06-17-2006, 06:56 PM
good log keep it up. im on day 4 pf/cissus/anagen/rebound reloaded/triple threat-which is trib with anti-e. already increased appetite/libido/recovery but i have to be careful or i will blimp out. thinking of adding a stim to keep fat off.
06-17-2006, 09:23 PM
maybe if you log your food you will know if your kcals are too high, just a suggestion.
06-18-2006, 06:29 AM
no way-this is your log im just along for the ride. but i will say that it seems reloaded is making it kick in faster.
06-18-2006, 09:08 AM
lol, i mean like on fitday.com or a site similar, it is really helping me figure out the best diet for me.
06-18-2006, 09:22 AM
i am 47 wht-230 hgt6'1 around 14-16%bf, i just like to stay in decent shape so i can work the dog**** out of the kiddies at work. after 8 yrs in usn most of it on carriers, working out with seals and grunts you kind of learn what works for you.

Shoulder Hammer Pressl- 130-9, 5, 4

Bent Over Rows 125-9 controlled
10 min cardio (better than nothing i guess lol)
Mood/Well Being/Positive Aggression: Great Energy for the workouts

Sleep: Sleeping still really hasnt changed.
Additional Comments: I dont have any extra comments as of yet. But i Have a ? for other powerfull users. right now on workout days i dose 4 (pre) then 2, 2. On off days I dose 2, 2, 2. Has anyone run higher doses and liked it better? I am willing to maybe bump it up a little. I have another bottle. Thanks.
06-21-2006, 11:12 AM
not higher dosage but i do 2 in the moring 4 pre then 2 at night. How are you dosing the anagen? Are you spreading it out thru the day?

Strength: Some up, some same
Mood/Well Being/Positive Aggression: Didnt really have the best workout. My hacks didnt improve at all and it felt very heavy today.

Focus/Workout Intensity- workout sucked.
Sleep: Decent. Same
Additional Comments: I think it was just one of those days. Felt flat couldnt really get too intense or get any rythm. With Hacks mostly. I was very disappointed. Oh well. I will bounce back friday. I think once these 4 weeks are up it might be time for a couple light wks to recover...Just needs to be done for long term gains...
edit:LOL, i was so rushed when I wrote this, i fixed some of the typos.
06-22-2006, 10:46 PM
I am feelin a little overtrained lately, whatever it may be...I have been getting about 8 hrs of sleep every night but i have been working very hard in the gym and @ work and school.

Additional Comments:Taking a day off yesterday I guess did the trick. I felt ****ty wen and thurs (like a little overtrained) so I took a nap thurs and slept in fri. Lots of sleep and I think thats what I needed. Cant wait for this summer class to be over so all I have to do is just work. Maybe I just wasnt getting enough sleep, who knows. BUt I think I could get a couple more hard wks in before I might need a break. This is last wk coming up on this log. I hope it has helped some of the people who have been following.

my results mirror yours/libido,sleep no change but i am noticing some recomp. my joints ache-yours too? but mine could be from reloaded. was hoping for cissus to do more for this.
06-28-2006, 08:28 PM
Ok well, I am letting everyone know that I am cutting my cycle short. The reason being is that the effects I felt about midway through have diminished, i feel a little overtrained so I am going to back off for the next wk, and I think I should just save what I have left over and use it next time because I felt this stuff much better in the begining of the "cycle". To give a recap of this stack I thought it was ok, it was nothing to crazy, just some enhanced pumps and pumps @ random times of the day. Some pretty good vasculatiry @ times but again nothing to crazy. All in all it was fun in a sense to get these pumps but I doubt this stack really had any huge physiological impact on me. But to some up my gains a little bit...
I gained 2 lbs in 3.5 wks. Not too bad. Lots of clean food and I did a lot o f low intensity cardio, i havent had achance to get back on the DEXA machine yet but I will update bf% when I do, should be tomorrow. I feel like I will be around the same %, i havent changed much in the mirror.
So nothing on the arm or the waist, but I guess my quad got a little bigger. My legs love to grow. I wish my upperbody was like that. Oh well, if there are any question or anything feel free, but otherwise this should be the last post, well, after I update my bf. Thanks for following.
