I have tried x-factor before, but I was eating a bunch of tri-o-plex bars, wich diminished it's effects. I also have tried scifit's ecdy 300 crap, but this is not a good source, therefore probably 2 mg pure ecdy. Now I heard good things about Ecdysten, and decided to give ecdy a second chance. Both should be pretty good, and I am impatient to see the results

Within the next two weeks or so, I am going to try Anagen and use it for a lean bulk/recomp.
06-07-2006, 01:25 PM
Heard good things about anagen. Looks pretty decent. Good luck

No, I just feel more sore, that's all. Better pumps. I just went back from a contest, so I just want to get things to normal before I note increases. I figured day 10 could be a good date to monitor progress.
06-08-2006, 12:15 PM
Just a little update. Not at gym yet. But I feel very hungry right now, even if I know I ate enough... Will get back on this tonight.
06-08-2006, 05:21 PM
Today I did back along with abs.
t-bar rows : 3 x 6-8 reps
reverse grip lat pulldowns 3 x 6-8 reps
dumbell pullovers 3 x 6-8 reps
leg raises 2 x 30 reps
machine crunches 3 sets 8-10 reps.
I felt very sore today, and have difficulty to walk because of DOMS in hamstrings. I feel a pump in everything I do, even sore in the calves from leg workout! Pretty good at this point.
WEIGHT: 177.4 lbs around 12% BF Keeping diet clean, and gains should be setting in
06-09-2006, 02:29 PM
Today is an off day. I am feeling good overall, and had 10 hours sleep, which was very beneficial. I felt extremely sore, and needed some rest. I will hit the weights tomorrow morning, and let you guys know how well everything is going.
06-10-2006, 08:47 PM
Today I did a 12 - 9 shift. I did shoulders in the morning. I did:
Military press: 3 x 6-8 reps
Front dumbell raises : 3 x 6-8 reps
Side raises : 3 x 6-8 reps
Barbell shrugs : 3 x 10 reps
Dumbell shrugs: 4 x failure
I also did some forearms a little to help with my grip, as I have difficulty holding the bar when I do barbell shrugs(235 lbs.)
I felt a pretty good feeling in the traps, and strenght is getting better everyday. I feel less sore today, maybe the purple wraath and ecdysten are starting to help with recovery.I also grabbed a AMP bottle at my local store to crank up workout intensity. The next workouts will be
06-11-2006, 06:04 PM
Here we are for day 13. This is an off day, and I cant wait for tomorrow's AMP dose. I want to blast everything I got and will give you guys news of how it was. Till next time, :good:
06-11-2006, 06:13 PM
sweeeet... cant wait to hear your feedback on AMP
06-12-2006, 08:26 AM
Just got one AMP this morning to waku me up, and I just feel the effects right away! Cant wait to take 2 pre-workout!!!
06-12-2006, 07:48 PM
I did some chest today. It felt awesome, and the AMP is the best stim. I have ever used. Seriously. No shakes whatsoever, and energy to sell. I pushed hard all the time, and will deserve a good punishement tomorrow hopefully
Flat bench press machine 4 x 8-10 reps
Incline barbell press 4 x 8-10 reps

06-12-2006, 08:40 PM
awesome!!! I'm gettin some AMP!
06-12-2006, 08:51 PM
The DOMS are not so bad for now. I can stand it. But I am gonna tell you how it feels in a couple days I think Ecdysten is starting to kick in. Purple wraath is maybe a good help with the DOMS now. So I am trying to get the most out of it because if I suffer too much from DOMS, I won't be able to push as much. I have 3 bottles of Ecdysten now, so I will be able to finish x-factor, and then continue with ecdysten to finish in beautyOriginally Posted by theshocker21

I am ordering some more, as I bought this one in my local shoppe for 64$CA , but on the net I can have it for 25$US. Well worth the wait, but I just couldn't wait for this one as I needed an extra boost. Well worth the bucks man.Originally Posted by Leggo my Ego

Today, I did the best leg workout in a while. I am feeling great right now, but very tired. I did:
Leg extensions 4 x 8-10 reps
Sumo deads dumbell 4 x 8-10 reps
Leg curls 4 x 8-10 reps
Calves raises 3 x 50 reps + static (wow what a pump!)
That was a good workout and I was very focused. I feel better, and stronger. I am always hungry even when I feel bloated and I just finished my meal. 400 g protein just isnt enough?
Love it so far. Will post weight at day 20
06-14-2006, 06:26 AM
I woke up this morning, with just a good feeling in the legs, some kind of pain that says: You did good work! , but at the same time, not the pain that makes you roll off your bed in the morning. I beleive the CM in Purple Wraath really makes a difference in the DOMS X-Factor will give me next.
06-14-2006, 01:18 PM
Just wanted to post diet..
Here it is:
Meal 1: 2/3 oats with 8 egg whites and 1 cup cottage
Meal 2: 3 scoops whey shake
Meal 3: 2-3 chicken breasts w. Brocolli
Meal 4: 3 scoops whey shake
Meal 5: 1 cup cottage cheese
Meal 6: (1/2 during 1/2 post)3 scoops whey, Purple Wraath, 2 scoops Gatorade
Meal 7: (1 1/2h after workout) 2-3 chicken breasts w. Brocolli
Meal 8: 3 scoops whey, or BSN lean dessert(not now, I am on x-factor)
That's about it.. Convenient, and easy to make. You can replace the breasts with other choices of lean meat, approx. 8 oz. will do it.
06-15-2006, 06:47 AM
This was an off day, and I had a nice meal with my father and friends. I was careful not to eat those EFA's but I think 1 every 15 days cant't harm me I am going to do some back and a little 30 min. cardio to make up for the cake I had for dessert(Brownie cheesecake HMMMMMMM) So I am feeling really good today, I did not overeat, and I am back on track this morning.
06-15-2006, 12:44 PM
dont you love those cheat days when when you can eat like that... on father's day I'm having my pa' over and we wil eat like KINGS. (My fiance' is making banana bread)
mmmmmm... banana bread
06-15-2006, 01:03 PM
Dude, that was the best cake I have ever had! So good. The restaurant makes like 20 kinds of cake and serves only desert. So good, makes me want to eat more. But we have to be reasonable. I was not feeling bloated yesterday. I was proud I did not exagerrate. I am soon going in the gym, got my ecdysten, and chewing my whey waiting for 3:15, then You're lucky some make food for you I have to do it all for myselfOriginally Posted by Leggo my Ego

She says "It's always the same food: chicken breasts, oatmeal, brown rice and beans...whaaa.. don't you get tired of that?".... to that I reply,"It's great, baby, just try it for a month... please" (that way maybe she'll cook for me)... it don't work
06-15-2006, 01:49 PM
LOL. When you're ripped, they never complain. But that's a BBer's life I guess.
06-15-2006, 01:57 PM
That reminds me so much of my girlfriend as well. When she first moved in with me, she started eating alot more similarly to what I do, and as a result dropped 5 pounds of fat without even trying. However, she since reverted to her more typical eating habits (i.e. Sweet tooth) and quickly added 4 of the 5 pounds back on. She really didn't like it when I said that I should just start eating the way she does and get fat for some reason.
06-15-2006, 02:03 PM
Is that avatar your ex-girlfriend? Oh lala. This makes my test levels rise instantly!!!LOL
06-15-2006, 02:10 PM
yeah, my girl prefers yoga and cardio to weight training and I'v been trying for 2 years to ger her to come to the gym and keep a diet similar to mine... losing battle. dont get me wrong, she's got a fantastic body, I just think she would be happier with her fitness results if she weight trained and followed and high protein, low fat and low glycemic lifestyle. We were watching Blade Trinity the other night and she was impressed with Jessica Biel's arms and wanted arms like her. To that I replied, "Better pick up some weights"

LOL - MaxSilver's infamous avatarIs that avatar your ex-girlfriend? Oh lala. This makes my test levels rise instantly!!!LOL
06-15-2006, 07:51 PM
That avatar is the nicest ass I have ever seen. Seriously!
06-15-2006, 07:59 PM
Ok, let's be serious now..I have felt the best pump ever today. I was going, pushin, pushing, and unstoppable quality reps were done today. I feel more focused with the AMP, not too sore with the Purple Wraath, and really pumped with Ecdysten and X-Factor. The cheat meal I had yesterday did not cause any harm at all, I even feel extremely rested and great!
Machine rows: Close grip 4 sets 8-10 reps
Wide-grip pull-downs : 4 sets 8-10 reps
Wide grip pull-downs behind neck 4 sets 8-10 + 1 set 15 reps low weight
Skull crushers 4 sets 8-10 reps (That felt good!)
One arm overhead dumbell extension 4 x 8-10 reps
Hammer bar overhead extension 4 x 8-10 reps
A little bit of obliques(Side bent and crunches)
Very proud of this workout, and I just can't wait t'il tomorrow!
06-16-2006, 01:38 PM
I was just wondering.
Has strength increased? You haven't posted any weights.
Where has your weight gone?
06-16-2006, 02:31 PM
The reason I am not posting my weight is that I wanted to recover from the contest first of all, and secondly, I will post it at day 20, 30, 40 because I just feel like variations can be pretty big, even with a strict and consistent diet. I dont post the weights I push as I am not into "the stronger, the better". I am focusing on feeling the pain with pretty low weights. I can post them if you want, but don't be impressed I feel that body composition has started to change though..Originally Posted by theshocker21
06-16-2006, 02:46 PM
Ok, might as well write this day up
I did shoulders:
Barbell pull to chin close grip: 4 sets 8-10 reps
Barbell press behind neck: 4 sets 8-10 reps
Barbell Military press seated: 4 sets 8-10 reps
I felt my lats and triceps this morning as soon as I woke up. Smile on my face appeared immediately Pain tells me "Good job, keep it up
There was a stupid dumbass at the gym today. He's been training like 3 months, had rough skin on his arms (had a shirt, so I don't know about his back) was buffed, looked like a bloated ballon, and when I left, he said "see you in May!" "Gonna win 1st place with no diet.." I was smiling. I have been training hard for 5 years, all natural, and the guy packed with m1t, probably don't even know what PCT means, (just a guess, can be another pro-hormone) tells me he will beat me just to make me upset? I smiled and didn't say a word. God I would have jumped on him. Amp makes me more stressed in those situations. Maybe x-factor did a little in that, but I had an adrenaline rush combined with anger as he yelled that in the gym, and I never talked to him before. Canada is a great country, but they should tighten up laws for pro-hormone usage. Some stores even put those on the shelves! The sellers are not knowing what they are talking about, and I just hope he will end up with big tits on stage next year Just makes me feel sick. Oh well, I know that I am the winner in this game, as I am proud of what I am and am doing this for myself.
I dont hate people who help themselves with hormones, but I just feel it makes them jerks who think they know everything, and should train without making others feel bad about themselves.
06-16-2006, 02:56 PM
yeah dude, there are stupid douche bags like that in every gym... don't let him make you angry. I'd bet both of my testicles that he's never stepped foot on stage and mont in may either.. He probably thinks that the people thet witnessed his mongo'esque behavior thought that he was tough, macho, cool, funny... whatever. They were probably thinking the same thing as you were... what a stupid ****ing douche bag!!! You did the right thing by turning the cheek and ignoring him, as hard as I know that was.
06-16-2006, 03:01 PM
It was hard indeed. Thanks for the encouragement I dont need that. I train hard and deserve every gram I put on. I hope his boys shut down on him
06-16-2006, 03:29 PM
Ok. Had an Idea. Want to up the ecdysten to 9 a day. Have 2 bottles and 15 left from it. Opinions will decide. You have the opportunity to tell me what to do
