Started Jungle Warfare Cycle
09-22-2006 06:21 PM
Well, today was the day! I decided at the beginning of this week that Friday, I was going to bench as it had been 4 weeks since I had done any. I really like the dumbbell workout that I am on right now but was wondering if I might be losing some strength in the bigger lifts. So, I did a combined back/leg workout Wed. with the intention of benching today to find out where I was at. I did....
I did other exercises also but this 315 bench was one of my goals with JW. I haven't had a 315 bench since I was 23. I will be 38 next week.Not bad for a 15 year hiatus.What I really liked was these were clean presses with no spotters hands on the bar. I feel if I had known what I could do I would have changed the sets around some. But now I know.
I really feel if you throw some change into your routine you can net some serious strength gains while on cycle with this stuff. I've still got 3 weeks to go. I've only gained 3 lbs while on it but I have really tried to watch what I eat b/c it seems the older I get the harder the fat is to come off. I would rather not put it on than work it off,thats more work than I would rather do!!!

Thanks Pumped, I haven't really ever done to much on the supplement side of things except creatine and protein but I really like this stuff. The hardest part was waiting for it to kick in.
Nice work. Looks like the JW is really working for ya.

Well I am happy to report that my appetite for sex has returned in the last 5 days. I guess my body finally adjusted itself. (been sleeping pretty good now)
Workouts are still great. On Monday my arms were so pumped that I almost had to ask for help to get my sweaty shirt off after my workout. I finally managed to get my fingers on my collar and pull it off. That would have been pretty embarrassing.
I guess I won't be needing the Restore after all. I was going to use some trib. that I had laying around but discovered it was out of date by 1 1/2 years so I had to put it out of it's misery.
I will update my workout/weights this weekend.

Well, today is Monday and my weight is steady at 218. That is fine with me as I see no extra fat. If anything, I have leaned up in the last 6 weeks. My strength increases have slowed but I can't complain, especially if I keep it. I think part of it is that I am just tired. Last week we were so busy at the shop that I missed 2 workouts so I made them up on Thursday and Sat. morning. I am dropping to 3 tabs a day this week to start winding down.
I went to the gym today and did
Flat dumbbell press--4 sets of 12 reps w/95's
Incline dumbbell press-4 sets of 14 reps w/80's(ready for 85s)
Decline dumbbell press--4 sets of 12 reps w/80's
dips(bodyweight)--3 sets of 14 reps/last set of 17 reps
cable crossovers--3 sets of 14 reps w/100's--One last set of 16 reps w/100
My diet this past week wasn't the best as I didn't have much time to eat as often,ext. due to the business at the shop. I also got kicked by one of our horses Sunday afternoon in my crotch (just missed the jewels by an inch) and was really sore there today. I was surprised to do what I did considering what happened.
I switched from squats to leg presses 2 weeks ago and am doing 10 plates for reps of 10 and a few sets of 12 plates for reps of 6. I'm trying to get those up to 10 reps before moving up. My quads are pumped almost as good as squatting when I am finished.
I will be posting after photos in about 1-1 1/2 weeks in anyone is interested. Talk to ya later.

Today is day 50. I weighed 217 this morning. Yesterday I took a few measurements and the main ones were the same minus another 1/4 inch gone in the waist. I would say in the last two weeks that my strength has remained pretty much the same and I have continued to lean out. I still get good pumps but I don't have that "feeling" that I had when I was taking 4 tabs a day.I think I have just gotten used to JW and perhaps the effects are not as noticeable???
I stated earlier that I was only upping my calories about 500 extra a day and have pretty much stayed that course.(give or take occasionally, I'm not that strict)The weird thing(in a good way) is that I have continually noticed more definition even though I am not dieting.
I had one of the guys I have been working out with tell me how much "thicker" I had gotten in the last month. I was pleased to hear that B/C these two pretty much dwarf me.
This is my last week of JW. I think I will be out of product by the end of the week and then I will close out this log.

You have a very detailed log! Ive enjoyed reading it, love the bits of humor in it as well JW acts in such a way that you are building muscle while burning fat, therefor sometimes the scale shows a loss or stays the same, I had to up my cals 3 times due to losing weight, as I was doing a bulk too. JW makes sure to re-partition the nutrients to feed the muscle first, starving the fat so that it will be burned off for energy. That is why even people who gain weight seem to look leaner in the end.
I went 8 weeks on JW, I didnt want to stop, lol I had some awesome strength gains on it, mostly in legs and presses, but everywhere really. I had a tester that went for bloodwork before, during and after. the JW really increased his test levels unbelievable! it also showed the test levels went back to normal within 2 weeks.
One more thing......We are told that there is no need to taper dosages, it does not help in any way.

Hi Fit, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I kinda had fun doing it myself. I kept 8 weeks worth of workouts on paper and was comparing week 1 versus week 8 today and was kind of surprised at some of it.I wanted to gain some lean muscle and I really wanted to get stronger as I tend to grow slowly into my strength. I would say I hit both of those goals. (I wil post the weight differences this weekend.)
I also stepped on the scale today and was 219. I think I may have been a little dehydrated on Monday as I do remember being kind of thirsty at the gym. I don't think I am going to lose any sort of muscle when I'm finished B/C my gains were very dry. No water weight here! I did a 30 day cycle of 1AD/4AD quite a while back and gained 9 lbs in a month but I was really puffy which I did not like so that was the end of that kind of stuff for me. I wound up losing 5 lbs when it was all said and done.
Anyway, I also believe the scale doesn't reflect my true muscle gain during this period because the mirror and my abdominals tell me otherwise. I know I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.

Well it's finally over. This has been a long 8 weeks. Time for a little rest!
BEGINNING ........ END
Chest....45.5 ..... 46.5
Neck......17........ 17 1/8
Waist.....35........ 34 1/2
R Thigh...25 1/2... 25 3/4
L Thigh...25........ 25 1/4
L Arm.....16........ 16
R Arm.....16........16 1/2
These aren't huge gains by any means but I like it slow anyway. The real proof will be in the pictures which I will post later today or tomorrow when I get my hands on a camera. I have not eaten exclusively for mass nor to get cut but I wasn't stupid with my eating either. I enjoyed that ice cream or that strawberry shortcake. Thats what I liked about JW, I still got the leaning effect while just doing what I wanted with food. I did not perform any cardio either. My goals were to get stronger,gain some lean muscle, and once again hit 315 on the bench press.All my goals were met.
The biggest benefit I received was in the strength dept.
Bench Press .... 275 x 3..........315 x 3
Dips(BW).........x 15...............x 25
Pullups(BW).....x 14...............x 20
Flat DB press...85 x 12...........100 x 12
Incline DB press..70 x 12.........85 x 12
Overhead press(machine)...155 for reps.....200 for reps
I concentrated a lot on upper body and was maintenance on lower. I have some catch up to do with my arms now as I pretty much didn't do any isolation exercises with them. That will be next goal. I cannot stress the need to change to change your workout up from the norm when using JW if you want some more strength. I recovered a lot faster while using this. As a matter of fact, I was browsing the training forum and will be using some rest/pause principles to catch up my arms so its time for another routine change.

Do you happen to have the results posted up anywhere? It'd be great to see some numbers to quantify the test level increase.

I have a few bottles myself, but am performing some much needed shoulder rehab work right now, so a strength gain inducing supplement such as this one is on the backburner.
