    Halodrol Liquigels & X-Factor Log


    Objective: This is an 8-week log starting today, October 30, of 2 boxes of Halodrol Liquigels and 2 bottles of X-Factor. I have used X-Factor before and I know it takes 4-5 weeks until it kicks in, which will be the last couple of weeks of running Halodrol Liquigels. I will also be taking fish oil [~900mg EPA/ DHA daily], which has been a no-no until recently but is deemed acceptable now.

    Background: It could be found in my Diesel Test 2010 + Raw Test & Diesel Fuel Log

    Goals: I want to gain at least 2-4 lean pounds by end of the 8th week while keeping body fat gain to a minimum.

    Basic Stats:
    • Age: 28
    • Sex: Male
    • Height: 5í 9Ē
    • BF: 10ó11%
    • Weight: 172.6
    • Waist: 29Ē
    • Wrist: 5 7/8Ē



    Workout Program:

    DC, 2-way split, training MWF

    Cardio Program:
    • MWF (workout days): 10ó30min low-intensity on a bike
    • TTh: 45 min brisk walk in the morning
    • SaSu (sometimes): 45 min brisk walk



    Diet: I will not be counting calories; I will be counting protein grams. I will be consuming the majority of carbs with the first two meals of the day and, on workout days, before and after workout. Most of the fats will be consumed earlier in the day too. I will be utilizing a carb cutoff after 6 p.m. where I will consume mostly protein and minimal amounts of non-starchy carbs and fats. Overall caloric intake would depend primarily on activity level that day but the principles of minimum protein intake and carb cutoff would always apply.

    Here is my list of food choices: sirloin, eggs, tuna, almonds, cashews, walnuts, coconut oil, olive oil, soy lecithin, oatmeal, sweet potato, honey, raisins, grapefruit, broccoli, cauliflower, and miscellaneous fruit and vegetables. Water intake will be set at least 2 gallons; fiber would be around 60 grams per day.


    Other Supplements:
    • MHP Activite Sport
    • S.A.N. Triple Strength Fish Fats
    • Source Naturals Relora
    • Nutrabolics InsuLeanK
    • Gaspari SizeOn
    • MRM BCAA+G
    • VPX NO-Shotgun/ ALRI Primed/ Get Diesel R4W V5.0


    I do not consider protein/ MRP powder a supplement but here are the only two that I use:
    • Bioformx Maxxiplex
    • S.A.N. Infusion


    Dosing Protocol:

    Halodrol Liquigels/ X-Factor

    Week 1: 3 gels
    Week 2: 3 gels/ 3 gels
    Week 3: 3 gels/ 3 gels
    Week 4: 3 gels/ 4 gels
    Week 5: 3 gels/ 4 gels
    Week 6: 3 gels/ 4 gels
    Week 7: ------/ 5 gels
    Week 8: ------/ 5 gels



    Final Remarks: I will only weigh myself once at the 4-week mark and then once at the end. I will take body and caliper measurements but I will only post the changes at the end.

    I am very sensitive to cortisol suppression from test boosters and if lethargy levels become unacceptable I will add NOW Adrenal Support to the arsenal. Hopefully, Relora would prevent this from happening.

    Not a bad first workout today, after taking 2 weeks off, well not completely off but still. I started with weights lower than my previous blastís starting weights. No need to push it that early.

    Halodrol Liquigels should be here Wednesday so this is when I start it.

    I am impatient to see hoe oily the skin will be, as XF by itself is the borderline for me.

    Day 2, Tuesday, October 31


    Cardio:
    45 min brisk walk upon rising

    Comments:

    I had very little soreness today, which is not typical. The appetite boost from morning cardio did not come until my third meal. Usually, one hour after breakfast I am starving.

    Day 3, Wednesday, November 1



    Workout: Biceps/ Forearms/ Calves/ Hams/ Quads

    Machine Curl: 55 X 14+8+7

    Alternated Hammer Curl: 25 X 14, Extreme Stretching

    Hammer Strength Calf Raise: 180 X 12

    Seated Leg Curl: 70 X 12+6+5

    Front Squat: 195 X 8, 125 X 20, Extreme Stretching


    Comments:

    Another good workout featuring two new exercises just introduced to this blast. I couldíve gotten 10 reps on the heavy set of front squats but decided to save it for the widowmaker and for the weeks to come. Form was great and hence the bar was easy to control: no slipping down my shoulders or towards my throat. Iím generally starting with weights 85ó90% of my last blastís weights so next time the jump in weight added to the bar will be significant, canít wait!

    I didnít do cardio after the workout because of work commitments. I didnít get the HLG today; my order will arrive tomorrow, after all

    No, but I have a bottle of Vitex that I might use after I'm done.

    According to one of the formulators of the product, it contains more than 250mg of AA but I guess it's not that much more since it's not cheap and there are other ingredients. So I will be basically runinng a little over a gram of AA for 2 weeks, then a little over 1,250mg for 3 weeks, then exactly 1,250 for two more weeks, which is not "much."

    I could've made my own stack with, say, X-Factor, E-Bol, and JW but it would've run me more[~ $220 vs. $160], prevented me from finding out a product that might work for me and from giving feedback on a stack some of you are contemplating running in the future.

    MN has said that you can run 1250mg for 60 days. This is the absolute maximum and should only be run by "advanced users"

    Something for you to think about.

    I am an advanced non-responder so I qualify

    Seriously though, I have run X-Factor at 1,000mg before and wanted to bump it up once the effects diminished. This is my chance.

    I have done about 3 cycles of XF. What I saw was that the effects diminished if the interval is only 50 days. If you wait a good 120 days before running it again, the receptors will be back to normal and you will get huge DOMS again. Just from my experience. I will wait a good 120 days before running it again, and then slam it with a 60 day 1250 mg. cycle. This will be something

    Day 4, Thursday, November 2


    Halodrol Liquigels: 1/ 1/ 1


    Cardio:
    45 min brisk walk upon rising

    Comments:

    Quads are sore today in a way that only front squats can make them sore: deep under the skin, in the mid-thigh area. Calves are sore too which is good since thatís a new exercise I am using this blast and itís always encouraging to feel that the stretch has been good.

    Appetite was through the roof again after morning cardio and especially so later in the day. Since this is when I consume mostly protein, it is very difficult not to exceed the 2g per lb mark

    Today was also one of the best days in my life, not because I got my order in the morning and started HLG, but because I got my first real job offer, which I accepted. Therefore, I would be moving to NYC soon. Now that I got it, I can say that I saw it coming; I had a premonition if you will. This past week I have been very relaxed and focused and, as a result, very productive academically and professionally, i.e. I was my normal self. This is the opposite of my prevalent mood in the last, ummmm, few years, characterized by a total lack of motivation for school work, daydreaming and playing out dramatic scenarios in my mind to the point of driving me insane. Anyway, it seems to be all over now or at least for the time being.

    Day 5, Friday, November 3


    Halodrol Liquigels: 1/ 1/ 1



    Workout: Chest/ Shoulders/ Triceps/ Back Width/ Back Thickness

    Incline Dumbbell Press: 70 X 13+6+5, Extreme Stretching

    Machine Shoulder Press: 70 X 11+6+5, Extreme Stretching

    Decline Close-Grip Bench Press: 135 X 12+7+6, Extreme Stretching

    Pulley Row High Pull: 6 X 14+9+8

    Deadlift: 245 X 7, 225 X 10, Extreme Stretching


    Cardio:
    20 min LI on a bike

    Comments:

    I took a long nap in the afternoon and worked out 2 hours later than normal, yawning all the time. Still a good workout, mainly because I kept it relatively light: I hit reps closer to the upper limit of 30 rest-paused. I absolutely love the new back width exercise; I feel the lats working very well, which is usually missing while doing other exercises. Also, this blast I decided to do the heavy set of deadlifts first and then the light set. I will still do the light first and heavy second for rack pulls, which generally limits how much I lift, mainly to keep the weight lighter and stay away from trouble.

    I finished the first blister pack of HLG today, 5 days in but nothing to report. Today was day one of X-Factor too.

    you eating ehnough? Youshould be gaining weight if your weights are going up..especially when the back of the box says " If you are looking to add pounds to your frame or to the weight you pull and push at the gym, then Gaspari Haladrol liquigels is the undisputed best legal choice for optimizing these goals." Gaspari would never lie right?

    I've got a box in my desk drawer I'm to take in 8 weeks...think I'm going to stack it with yellow gold and trione

    I'm probably not eating enough. It's hard to do with my class schedule and college budget. I've been eating slightly more, but probably not enough.
