  1. Restore & Jungle Warfare log


    Alright!! Time to eat big, sleep big, lift big, and get big!!! In this log I'll be stacking both of ALRI's new products, Jungle Warfare and Restore. I will be running a "pyramid" style stack of these two products.

    Week1: Restore...3 caps.
    Week2: Restore...3 caps.
    Week3: Restore...3 caps. Jungle Warfare...3 caps
    Week4: Restore...3 caps. Jungle Warfare...3 caps
    Week5: Restore...3 caps. Jungle Warfare...3 caps
    Week6: Restore...3 caps. Jungle Warfare...3 caps
    Week7: Restore...3 caps.
    Week8: Restore...2 caps.
    Week9: Restore...2 caps. (I decided to taper down a bit more slowly this time. In my last log of JW only, coming off of 3 caps I experienced some mild depression. It was very similar to depression felt during and post PCT from past cycles of Ergomax LMG. So, always the experimentor, I will be trying a slower taper this time with my body).

    Current Stats

    Age: 27
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 238lbs
    Bodyfat: 13%

    Goals
    To continue to add muscle of course!! You can never have enough of that! I will continue to prioritize areas that I consider to be asymmetrical, such as my triceps, side/rear delts, and hamstrings.

    Diet

    4000kcals daily consumed in a 40/40/20 ratio of protein/carbs/fat. So that's 400g protein, 400g carbs, 90g fat.

    Workout Program

    In my Jungle Warfare log I used Doggcrapp style training and loved it. However, it is time for a change. So my workouts will look like this.

    Traps, Biceps, Forearms, Quads
    Triceps, Hamstrings, front delts
    Back, rear and side delts
    Chest, calves

    Cardio will be performed 2x weekly, followed by 20 minutes of abs.

    This is a very untraditional split, but it's something different than the usual chest/tri, back/bi, etc. and I'm bored as hell with traditional splits!!!

    This log starts on Saturday!!

  2. Day 3


    Day 1: 3 caps Restore + cardio
    Day 2: 3 caps Restore + Delts and biceps
    Day 3: 3 caps Restore + Relaxation...it's my off day.

    At this point I'm starting to feel the slight hormonal changes that are begining to occur in my body. My mood is slightly up, and I found a pimple on my forehead today. I could just be a dirty boy, or it could be a sign of test levels starting to elevate.

    Tomorrow will be Triceps, Quads, and a small amount of chest (peck deck machines and dumbell presses with palms in and elbows close to sides). During my last cycle of JW I sustained an injury where my anterior deltoid and pectoralis major inserts into the right clavicle (I basically got too strong too fast from JW). It's still a nag and benching movements after a few sets tend to aggrivate it. It's one of those things that I'd rather set my ego aside for a while, let it fully recover, and then start back up again than continue to try and "work through it" and create an even bigger injury that what is already there. Such is life.

  3. Day 4


    B]Today's Workout[/B]

    Chest

    4x Dumbell presses (palms facing each other). I would have done more, but I started to feel some slight aggrivation in my shoulder.

    Triceps

    8x Skull Crushers
    4x Cable Pushdowns

    Traps

    7x Behind Neck barbell shrugs on Smith Machine

    Dose used: 3 caps Restore.

    Workout impressions

    I'm starting to feel a bit more stamina in the gym. Pumps are also starting to increase....very reminiscent of my log with JW.

  4. Subscribed!!..... I started JW solo Saturday for a 8 week cycle. Good luck!

  5. Your workout doesn't match what you said you were gonna do in the first post. Also drop the shrugs its a worthless exercise. Just get trap work with deadlifts and rows.
  6. Day 6


    Took 3 caps Restore today.

    Total kcals for the day were 4200 in a 40/40/20 split.

    Trained back today

    Back

    Pullups
    Hammer Strength High Rows
    One arm dumbell Rows
    Reverse grip pulldowns
    T-bar Rows.

    25 sets total!! Yeah, everything just felt really good today. I'm dead tired though now and will be paying for that workout for days to come!!

    Cry about it......Just joking. Sometimes if I am for whatever reason really feeling something else, I'll go with my instinct for the day and do that instead. I don't do it too often, but if I have a strong instinctual drive to do one thing and very low motivation for what I "should" do, then I'll follow my instinct.

    I'm including trap work right now because they are lacking in comparison. I do deadlifts and rows, but my traps respond best to direct work.

    If thats the case, then do your shrugs on an incline bench facing the back of it. Hang your arms over infront of you and shrug holding dumbbells. The angle will stimulate the traps all the way down into the lower back creating an all around bigger muscle.

    I have read of this exercise before and for whatever reason I've completely forgotten about it.....thank you for reminding me of that one

    I will definitely being incorporating that exercise this week!
  10. Day 9


    Hi guys,

    Sorry for the lack of updates. I picked up this nasty little bug that's just had me sick and has sapped all of my energy. I've still been dosing Restore at 3 caps a day....high test levels are always great for overcoming sickness! And I just HAD to get sick while doing this. Couldn't have happened BEFORE I started this or any other time...had to be this time!!! LOL!! Gotta love how life works.

    Anyways, aside from being sick and not having been in the gym for the past few days, I thought it would be a good idea to summarize real quick what I'm noticing.

    *Although I've been sick, I'm still pumped...not bad
    *My mood has been elevated a bit.
    *acne and oily skin has started to occur.


    I should be back in the gym tomorrow.

  11. Day 10


    Took 3 caps Restore...and I have a 100 degree temperature!!! Just my luck. I'm going to have to pull out of this log for a few days until I start feeling better again.

    I will pick back up where I left off however when I'm 100% and this will be a 6 1/2 week log rather than an 8 week log. Now I'm just PO'ed !!

  12. Day 13


    Ok, I'm feeling SO MUCH better now. I was actually 100% yesterday but decided to give myself an extra day of rest just in case!

    All in all I missed one day's worth of dosing....no big deal

    So let's get this fired back up again!!

    Today I felt like....

    Triceps and Traps

    *warmup with 4 sets cable pushdowns to induce occlusion(a pump basically).
    *6 sets Skull Crushers
    *4 sets Lying barbell extensions
    *4 sets Behind-Neck barbell shrugs (done on a smith machine)
    *4 sets Hammer Strength Shrugs

    Positive Effects Noticed

    *I'm VERY horny all the time!! Definite libido increase.
    *there's a nice increase in the pumps I get.
    *noticing more endurance/stamina in the gym.
    *Positive mood.
    *I'm starting to notice a slight "leaning out" effect...probably due to the AI being present.

    Negative Effects Noticed

    *Just a minor increase in acne and that's about it. It's comparable to what I noticed while running Jungle Warfare solo.

    Dosing

    *Still taking 3 caps of restore.
    *It looks like tomorrow I'll be adding in 3 caps of Jungle Warfare
  13. Day 16


    Today's Dosing

    *3 caps Restore
    *3 cps Jungle Warfare

    I am definitely starting to feel an increase in strength in the gym, and my mood is very much improved I'm stoked now that I get to add Jungle Warfare to the stack! This stuff solo kicked some serious a$$, so the two together will be very interesting.

    On Friday I hit Back...my apologies on posting this late.

    *Pullups
    *Hammer Strength High Rows
    *T-Bar Rows
    *Reverse grip Pull Downs

    Energy and stamina were definitely up during the workout, and at the end of my workouts, although I'm beat dead, I still feel very good and energetic. Very nice effect.

    Starting weight

    *238lbs

    Today's weight...taken first thing in the morning, empty stomach.

    *241lbs...definitely NOT fat!
  14. Thumbs up Day 17


    Dosing

    *3 caps Restore
    *3 caps Jungle Warfare

    *Bent over DB laterals
    *DB Military Presses
    *E-Z bar Preacher Curls
    *Incline curls
    *Reverse Barbell Curls
    *Seated barbell wrist curls

    I used a Doggcrapp abbreviated style today to induce extended tension in my sets. Each exercise was performed 2x, each D/C style.

    I am definitely noticing an increase in stamina and strength in the gym. Very pleased so far
  15. Thumbs up Day 19


    Dosing

    * 3 caps Restore
    * 3 caps Jungle Warfare

    Today's Workout....Legs baby!!!

    You know, some days it's just a total b!tch getting motivated to go to the gym to train legs. But then you get there and it's game on! I've decided to compete again in the 2007 Northern Classic held in Tacoma, Washington. So that motivation to make every workout count is mounting high! Today I did...

    *Leg press (occlusion, no lock out or pause at top)...4x
    *Leg Ext. 3x (using the ROB method...Rest Only Briefly).
    *Hamstring curls (got a nasty cramp so I decided to play it one the safe side and stop.)
    *Seated calf raises (Pad on knees)...used ROB method. 4x
    *Hammer Strength calf presses...4x using ROB method.

    Strength and endurance in the gym are definitely up. Vascularity has increased, and I am starting to notice a slight bit of a decrease in bodyfat.

    * 3 caps JW

    *STRENGTH GAINS!! These have been huge over the last 3 weeks!!
    *Nice gains in lean muscle mass

    Negative Effects Noticed

    *A slight drop in libido...probably due to the high dose of AI I'm running using 3 of each. But hey, I can still bone!!!

    Weight Gain

    Week2:241lbs

    Actually, I came back fresh and very strong. Visually, I am leaning out VERY, VERY nicely. I am pumped, getting more and more ripped, and still getting stronger. Endurance and stamina are up in the gym, as well as vascularity.

    One thing I have noticed is that I am feeling more and more restless at night. Has anyone else noticed a similar effect?

    I will weigh in tomorrow and report back on weight changes.

  18. i'm a month into my JW and i just started noticing getting more and more restless at night. Also some crazy vivid dreams. I'll actually wake up from some of them that's how real they feel. Also for some reason i've been having some crazy headaches for the past 2 days. You feel anything like that? And hey just wandering cuz you mentioned the Mt. Tahoma show, where do you train out of? I train out of Bellevue 24hr Fitness.. Anyways man i'm gonna be at the show so good luck with your training and everything.

    Yeah, I've have noticed some restless nights as well lately. I was completely wired from 12am to 4am in the morning last monday night...could not sleep for anything!! But I do wake up more often and feel like I can stay up longer than what's best for me.

    Back when I was using JW solo, yes, my dreams were crazy vivid. To the point that I thought they were real for a few moments after waking up!

    Author had mentioned the cause of the headaches in another post...I think I saw it copy and pasted over at bb.com. I don't remember the exact cause for it but I know that the team of ALRI has some pretty good insights into the problem now........it had something to do with the stength of the mormodica chirantia extract being too strong for some users because it some effect on insulin receptor sensitivity and increasing their sensitivity...something like that. I'd email ALRI.

    I train out of Pure Fitness in Tacoma. Do you plan on competing in that show or are you just going to check it out?

  21. damn that's some awsome results bro!! guess i'll see you at the show. i'm just checking it out. I've had a lot of setbacks this year, to where i lost so much muscle mass that i'm in no way ready for any show. But that's ok, i'll keep working at it, pack that mass back on and next year i'll win me a show.
  22. Day 35


    Dosing

    * 3 caps Restore
    * 3 caps JW

    Diet

    Still using the 40/40/20 split of protein, carbs, and fat. Kcals are at 3900.

    Today's workout

    Today I had to make it quick!! Get in, get out type of thing. So I went in and blasted my biceps using the ROB (rest only briefly method) for 4x, Forearms, and finished off with rear delts.

    *Preacher Curls w/ DB...ROB method 1x
    *Preacher curls w/ EZ curl bar...ROB method 2x
    *DB Hammer Curls using ROB method for 1x

    *Barbell wrist curls 5x

    *Rear Delts using Peck Deck...ROB method 1x

    Impressions

    Sex baby!! That's all I'm thinking about lately! This combo is definitely a solid libido booster. My strength gains have also been sick while on this...moreso than when running Jungle Warfare solo (and those were some sick-ass strength). For example, for skull crushers with a single dumbell, I started with a 90lb dumbell for 8. Now I'm throwing up 115lb dumbell over my head and pressing it out nice and easy! Scares the hell out of me with that kind of weight over my head. So I try to prefatigue my triceps before doing that....nope, doesn't work. I can still put up a 115lb dumbell with ease for 10 reps.

    Yeah, set backs happen. That's just a given. Sure am glad though for muscle memory!! You'll get back to where you were in no time
  24. Day 35


    Dosing

    * 3 caps Restore
    * 3 caps JW

    Today's workout

    Today I did chest and triceps, along with extensor work on my forearms. For those of you who followed my JW log you may remember that I had a minor injury in my right clavicle where my pectoralis major and anterior deltoid muscles tied in. That in effect kept me from a lot of pressing movements for chest. The only pressing movement I could really do was dumbell presses using a "palms turned inward facing each other" grip, without any pain.

    When I started this stack, I was using 105lb dumbells for flat bench presses...down about 20lbs from my max weight for 9 reps. Now, I am using the 130lb dumbells for flat bench dumbell presses with ease. 8 reps, nice and slow, nothing sloppy. And it feels light too. The second set I was able to put up 5 1/2 reps.


    Just a side comment on effects

    Strength gains, IMO, are this stacks greatest benefits. Now if you manipulate that right by having enough time under tension, then muscle growth too is another nice effect this stack has to offer. At 5 weeks in, I am also noticing a very heightened alpha male attitude.

    Just thought I would share that with everyone.



  25. Hows the cycle going? Been a couple days.

  26. hey brother.. just had a quick question.. when i was on JW, after a while, a few weeks on it, i was getting these crazy anxiety atacks,..also i would go into uncontrolable rages if pissed off to where i would turn all red, have a hard time breathing... and my blood sugar would drop so low that a few times i felt like i was going to pass out.. also towards about 5 weeks into it i started having these constant headaches so i had to stop it.. have you experienced any of that?
  27. Thumbs up Day 42


    Alright peeps, 6 weeks into this cycle and the results are amazing! Unfortunately I have to start cycling this puppy down down now. I am finished with the Jungle Warfare and will now be finishing up the last two weeks with 3 caps of Restore daily.

    Adding the JW really amplified the effects of this cycle compared to my prior log of JW solo. Most notable have been the strength gains, lean muscle mass gained, and I actually have lost bodyfat this time around. Last time while running Jungle Warfare solo I didn't notice a single bit of fat loss. Combining the two however has proven to be a wicked little cocktail for fat loss and muscle gains. So, I'll cut to the chase and give some hard facts.

    Weight Gain

    Week1:238lbs
    Week2:241lbs
    Week3: As of day 23..243lbs
    Week4: As of day 31..245lbs
    Week6: 248lbs

    So I've been able to put on 10lbs of lean mass in 6 weeks, and I've dropped 2% in bodyfat.

    Positive Effects Noticed

    *HUGE PUMPS 24/7.
    *Increased endurance/stamina in the gym.
    *Positive mood.
    *I've lost 2% bodyfat without cutting cals
    *STRENGTH GAINS!! These have been HUGE!
    *And I guess if you have to twist my arm to say it, the gains in muscle mass have been alright....totally sarcasm

    Negative Effects Noticed

    *The oily skin has returned, and I've noticed a bit more acne than usual.

    The 2 week plan

    *As of tomorrow I'll be starting to ramp down this cycle by taking 3 caps of Restore only.

    No, I haven't experience this.

    Here's my take on this and you may not like what I have to say, but I'm going to be upfront with you on it anyways. Hormones, whether you're taking anabolic steroids or products like JW and Restore that amplify the male physiology and increase natural and free test, are NOT the primary cause of emotional out-bursts or "roid rage." My take on it is that elevated levels of testosterone, be it synthetic or not, simply amplify something that is already there (anxiety and rage in your case and in the case of many others), and bring pre-existing agressive tendencies to the surface. Under normal circumstance you are able to control it, but add the hormones into the soup and the cat gets let out of the bag and that side of your personality emerges.

    I have cycled plenty in the past and have never had an uncontrollable bout of anger, rage, anxiety, or aggression. That is just not a part of the make up of my personality. Others however, who have more of a Type A personality, will be more prone to this.

    So my point in short is that I don't believe that the Jungle Warfare is causing this with you. I think that this is a part of you that is already there (the anxiety and rage), and the elevated hormones are simply amplifying again, something that already exists within your personality. I may be wrong as I don't know you, but this has been my experience with myself and many others I know that juice and/or alter their male sex hormone levels with products like these.

  29. Nice log. I followed your first JW log and this one. I think I'll have to try this stack later on as my solo JW cycle helped my strength tremendously. I considered restore but figured it may be overkill. Maybe I was wrong

  30. Great log. I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to purchase JW but I'm worried that I might experience some hairloss since I am very prone.
