Objective:This is an 8-week log starting August 21 of 2 bottles of Diesel Test 2010, 1 bottle of Raw Test and 2 bottles of Diesel Fuel. I will keep my training constant for the entire duration but I might change my diet for the second 4-week portion of this trial. Nevertheless, I will provide objective feedback and answer any questions pertaining to the effects of the aforementioned products.
Background: I started lifting in March of my junior year in high school. I was consistent for a couple of years until military and family obligations made it more of an on-an-off thing. I didn’t lift while in college, mostly because my summer 100-hour work weeks made it impossible to even hold on to the little mass I already had.
I began lifting again 2 years ago when I went to grad school. I started out at a weight I have maintained for most of my pre-adult life—145lbs, that is, a skinny-fat 145lbs—and after much experimentation with different routines, diets, supplements and hormonal products, I brought myself to a fat-and-strong 185lbs in March of 2006. I followed the UD 2.0 for 6 weeks and saw my abs for the first time, then dieted further using more orthodox methods until the end of June 06, thereby reaching a point where I weighed 160lbs and had a spider web of veins in my lower abs and knees, and a nice tibialis separation. I still had lots of stubborn chest, back, and thigh fat but I decided enough is enough and I started eating and lifting normally again. After 4 weeks of “bulking” and 2 weeks off, here I am now, at a lean 166lbs.
I learned quite a few things along the way, one of them being that I am a non-responder to a lot of stuff. In a roughly chronological order, I took the following creatine products: Creapure, V-12 Turbo, Bolt, Cre-Ethyl Thunder, Storm, Energized Xpand, Nos Ether powder, Leptigen Mass, SizeOn, Cre-Ethyl Thunder at 20 caps per day, reformulated Clout, and I strongly disliked all of them but SizeOn. I didn’t get the same results everyone’s getting from creatine but I liked SizeOn well enough to make it a staple and not look at a different creatine product again.
Another thing I discovered was that one of the weakest links in my physique was my adrenals [that and my dismally low tolerance for volume training and for carbs, to name a few]. As much as liked the increased recovery I got from products such as Jungle Warfare, for example [at 5 caps per day though], I felt and performed best when using adapatogenic herbs. Therefore, I decided to use Diesel Test 2010, Raw Test, and Diesel Fuel: they contain a blend of adaptogens that have proved very beneficial to me in the past. Besides, with Diesel Fuel, I don’t really ‘need’ a separate green-tea product and an antioxidant. Its fat-burning potential is really of secondary importance to me.
Lastly, I have used the Diesel Test and Raw Test combo before, although that was the last version of the yellow-label Diesel Test. I liked the sense of well-being I got from this, especially after adding Raw Test, the sexual effects, and the moderate strength gains. I have used Diesel Fuel sporadically too but never got that intense focus I got from the very first dose with subsequent doses. I get used to stuff too quickly.
Goals: I want to gain 2-4 lean pounds by end of the 8th week while keeping body fat gain to a minimum. My long term goal is to be around 180-200lbs with 8% body fat [which will be just enough on my small joints, see stats below], be able to squat 1.5 times my bodyweight for 20+ reps and shoulder press 100s for 20+ reps [shoulders are my best body part, relatively speaking].

I did DC training for 5 weeks in May and 4 weeks in July. I liked it so much that I will probably never train any other way. This 8th week log should also coincide with an 8-week blast before a 2 week cruise [a deloading phase, so to speak] where I will drop all supplements.
Body weight measurements will be officially taken every 2 weeks on Monday before workout for two reasons: I don’t believe in them as a reliable measure of progress and I can only use the scale at the gym.
Caliper readings and pictures will be taken but most likely not posted.
Once again, this voyage starts on Monday, the 21st.
