    The EVOLUTION (stack) of BigPoppaDros


    The EVLOUTION of BIGPOPPADROS

    This is my first log and I am fairly new to the boards. I have been training for over 10 years and competing for four; diet and training logs are second nature to me so posting should be an easy step.
    I really appreciate Fnf and ALRI for giving me the chance to test the EVOLUTION STACK and I hope my log is helpful. I definitely will appreciate any feedback on details that I might forget if it would be helpful to any of you. Here is a little history of what led me to the EVOLUTION:

    The Past:
    This past November I finished up my fourth year of competing and for the first time in that four years I failed to build and progress my physique. I had more knowledge, more focus, more drive, and more discipline but did not translate to into positive results.
    My perspective became blurred and I dropped too much weight in my pursuit to be as hard and lean as possible. I did reach a new level of conditioning, but it was not until I reflected on the contest photos that I saw why my placings were below my expectations.
    I dieted for 16 weeks leading up the INBF Naturalmania. After placing out of the top 5, I decided to continue the diet for another 7 weeks to the INBF Worlds. This long diet took a toll as begin dropping weight and seeing my testosterone drop.
    In 2005 I stepped on stage at 184 lbs. In September 2006 I hit the stage at 182 and in November I dropped down to Middleweight at 172 lbs. Here are the pics from this past fall:






    The Present:
    In the five weeks since I was last on stage, I have focuses on regaining strength and building some muscle as well as adding some fat (for overall health). I eat clean all year around and I stay on a consistent meal schedule (detail will follow in the log). Since the competition I have not kept a log, but habit keeps me always aware of my daily intake. I have been around 300g protein, 300-325 carb. 100g fat.
    My training has been high volume with a focus on building strength in the 6-10 rep range. In past off seasons I have placed too much emphasis on low rep strength training and I feel it is now time to get re-focused on a more traditional bodybuilding rep range. I found that the 1-3 rep range led to injury and it did not produce the growth I had hoped for. I have also been integrating some X-rep techniques into my training.
    Here is a photo from a few weeks after the competition; still hard but beginning to fill out:




    The Future:
    Now that my body has stabilized and recovered from the long diet, I am ready to focus on new gains. I need to add the thickness and size necessary to get the placing I diet so hard for. In order to achieve this goal, I am lucky to be selected as a tester for the ALRI EVOLUTION STACK.
    I hope to see this stack help me to achieve new levels of strength and growth as well as help me to recover the libido and hormone balance that crashed during the diet.

    Tomorrow I will post my diet and training schedule for the EVOLUTION STACK test and Thursday (12-28) the log will get going…

    STATS:
    Age: 24
    Sex: M
    Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 193
    Body type: ecto
    Est. BF% : 5%

    Training experience: I started lifting/training more than 10 years ago to help my performance in HS sports. In college my passion for lifting kept me in the gym constantly and led me try bodybuilding. I have been competing as a natural bodybuilding for 4 years. For more than 6 years I have been keeping records and charts of food intake and nutrient counts (most of these I have kept on CD). I have used different nutritionists, training techniques, and a wide variety of supplements as I work to achieve my goal of obtaining a natural pro-card.

    Current Training Schedule / Protocol (as much detail as possible): I train twice a day; once at 5 am before work and again at 6:30 pm after work. I started double splits years ago when I read Arnold’s Encyclopedia of BB and I kept it up ever since. It has become a habit and addiction, but I really feel it allows me to focus on certain muscles and then have a break before hitting something else.

    AM PM
    Sunday Quads Hams
    Monday Cardio/Abs OFF
    Tuesday Bis/Calves Chest
    Wednesday Quads/Hams Delts/Tris
    Thursday Cardio/Abs Back/Traps (focus on row/deads)
    Friday Cardio/Calves OFF
    Saturday Bi's & Tri's Back (focus on pulldown)

    Each time I hit a certain muscle group it is trained differently from the previous session. This could be different exercises and/or different rep schemes and techniques. Also, one session is always faster with less volume (never light).

    Cardio Schedule/Protocol (as much detail as possible):
    Monday, Wednesday, Friday / 5:00am / 35-40 min Gauntlet / 1-2 sessions = interval training. I will also throw in some 15-20 min sessions when I feel I need it as a warm up.

    Current supplements (exact brand/product name):
    Beverly Ultra 4 Multivitamin
    Digestive Enzyme
    CLA- 2000mg 3 x per day
    SesaMax – 1 cap 3 x per day
    ALRI Hyperdrive (3 pre-workout) OR Ergo Amp (3-4)
    NO Shotgun (1 scoop before evening lift)
    BCAA (bulk) – 15g pre-workout
    Creatine/Leucine/Glutamine (5g each – bulk mix) – postworkout
    ZMA
    Tribulus (bulk) – 1 tsp x 2 daily

    Current Nutrition and Macros (as much detail as possible):
    300 Protein / 350 Carb / 75 Fat
    7 Meals per day (all charted each day): portions are all planned the day before to fit the above totals, but the breakdown changes each day depending on mood:
    - 3-4 Protein Shakes (Beverly Ultimate Muscle / True Protein Blend (Micellar Casein + Whey Isolate + Trehalose) AND 1/3 – ½ cup Oatmeal
    - 3-4 whole food meals: Oatmeal OR Ezekiel Break / 4-5oz Chicken OR 93% lean Ground beef (1 meal beef) / 1 cup green beans

    Current Daily water intake: 6 L / day

    Short Term Goal: Gain as much lean mass as possible by April (start of next contest diet) while holding BF below 9-10%

    Long Term Goal: Continue to gain lean mass and win natural pro-card. Recent contest judging comments have called for more thickness and overall size.

    ANY and ALL Prescription / Non-Prescription / Recreational drugs (for the last 60 days): NONE

    Supplement history (as much detail as possible):
    - ALRI Jungle Warfare; ALRI Restore; AX Retain; AX Hyperdrol
    - Fat burner / stimulants: Redline (caps & liquid); Ergopharm AMP; CMI Red Cell; Lipo 6; Dymatize Amp’d; ALRI Venom; IDS Kranker; Thermolife Stizim; AMP & H.E.A.T. stack; Gaspari Thyrotabs
    - Creatine mono; bulk CEE; MAN Orotine; bulk Creatine/Leucine/Glutamine mix; SizeOn
    - NO Xplode; NO Shotgun; SuperPump 250; Satur8 Rush; Beverly Muscle Synergy
    - CLA; MAN Vaporize; Scivation Sesamin; bulk Fish Oil Caps; Flax (liquid & caps); Beverly EFA Gold
    - bulk BCAA; Beverly Mass Aminos; Beverly Ultra 40; Beverly Muscle Mass BCAA; L-glutamine (various brands)

    Here is the EVOLUTION STACK:

    Bad Ass Mass:



    Bad Ass Mass™ is designed to support serious mass gain through the most effective pro-anabolic pathways.

    -Stimulate muscle AR’s for enhanced protein synthesis and tissue repair.
    -Bind SHBG to increase levels of free testosterone.
    -Increase LH/FSH to maximize output of natural testosterone.
    -Increase glycogen retention and optimize internal hydration levels.
    -Support superior protein synthesis through modulation of transcription factors.
    -Inhibits excessive cortisol levels for an anti-catabolic effect.
    -Promote recovery of the neuromuscular matrix.
    -Provide superior results either in a synergistic stack or as a standalone supplement

    Jungle Warfare:





    Pro-Hypertrophic Proprietary Matrix For Increased Myotrophic Activity!


    So, obviously by now everyone knows that anabolic/androgenic steroids (anabolic steroids), prohormones (PH) and prosteroids (PS) work rather well for aiding lean tissue growth by increasing the anabolic response in muscle tissue thus shuttling nutrients away from fat and feeding them to muscle...and most know that they can have serious side effects like jail, HPTA shut-down, liver enzyme and lipid issues. Oh, and they are banned by about every sporting organization on the planet. Many are willing to take these risks, but it may not be necessary or a best choice for the goals desired.

    The way that all androgens (anabolic steroids, PH and PS alike are types of androgens) trigger anabolism (protein synthesis/myotrophic activity) in muscle cells is interesting. Once an androgen is in the circulatory or lymphatic system, its molecules merge with androgen receptors (AR’s...remember that term, there will be a test at the end) thus acting as an AR agonist. (Agonist cause a response...antagonist stop one...unless it is an ex-girlfriend of course) The molecule basically delivers a message to the cell telling it what to do. The reason AAS and other androgen-type compounds are so coveted in the underground is simply due to the fact that they deliver a "make more proteins" message in a get bigger and perform better way. (Did I mention the negative side affects?) It is possible to do this without hormones and deliver a significant myotrophic message muscles will pay attention to…without the negative side affects.

    What's So Great About Jungle Warfare?


    -Increased myotrophic activity
    -Favorable nutrient repartitioning
    -HPTA modulation
    -Estrogen management
    -Significant Pro-Hypertrophic capacity
    -Anti-Catabolic


    What's In It?

    Naturally, our design was intended to have a synergistic effect in that one compound’s actions amplifies the others. (I am sure some can think of comparisons to this important point of design). The result is a synergistic Pro-hypertrophic from ALRI featuring an Herbal Proprietary Myotrophic Complex. (Get the name Jungle Warfare™ yet?) Mormordica Chirantia Extract - We use a specific dual extraction/standardization process that allows us to use both the insulinogenic and non-androgenic AR agonistic fractions unique to a proprietary mormordica chirantia extraction. By doing so, we can foster the hypertrophic event in lean tissue via the two most important mechanisms without the usual negative side effects.

    ADED (5a-dehydro-etiocholane-1,4,6-trien-3-one-17-ol) - Many are aware of both the positive and negative physiological issues relating to the naturally occurring aromatase inhibitory ATD. Most of the benefits are the result of one of its physiological 17-OH metabolites. ADED is a natural non-androgenic metabolite of ATD with improved oral bio-availability. Please, do not confuse this with ATD itself as the difference is very important both in structure and action: Some may recall this one from our Ultra H.O.T.ter matrix but to recap…By modulating estrogen build-up the negative feed-back look to the hypothalamus is put in check. The result is that the body optimizes natural testosterone production. We use our favorite aromatase inhibitor to do this and it works pretty well to modulate, instead of obliterate, estrogen. So we still have the right amount of estrogen for optimal growth of lean tissue, without the excess water weight and fat feeding aspect.

    Conjugated (-)3,4-divanillyl-tetrahydrofuran - We utilize an excellent free testosterone optimizing compound called Conjugated (-)3,4-divanillyl-tetrahydrofuran. This is simply the result of a series of extraction processes performed upon nettle root. Many know of this herb due the anti-aromatase capacity and the studies that show its positive affects upon BHP in men. Some of the nettle extracts also have a positive affect upon the total testosterone to free/active testosterone ratio. More free testosterone means more “active” (as in the part that really matters) testosterone. Nothing really trick here other than it just works better than one would expect. (Nice for a change when something can be simple and effective). Of course, it is all about effective delivery into the body that makes it an asset.

    Proprietary Conjugated Coleonol Extract - Hypotrophic-type receptor health and integrity is paramount to lean tissue optimization. In reality modulation is surprisingly dependant upon cAMP stimulation. Without it, receptor activity down-regulation occurs rapidly and the lean mass promoting symbiotic relationship between hormones goes in the toilet. The ALRI Proprietary Conjugated Coleonol Extract supports this need rather well.


    Restore:



    Support Testosterone, Inhibit Estrogen To Promote Lean Mass!

    In the ever expanding world of performance and health supplementation today, there is an assumed division between products considered "hard-core only", and those that are intended to promote lean mass acquisition by way of improved over-all health. Both groups of users actually may have the same goals…especially men. Facts are we are performance oriented men and want as much muscle building, sex-driving testosterone as humanly possible. I mean come on, can you find a guy that says "I want to be fat and feminine" (okay, one that isn't looking for a sex-change). We all want to be healthy optimized males! We don't want to deal with the negative side affects of excess estrogen from any source. It shuts down testosterone production and makes people fat and *****y. We like being men!

    A Solution

    ALRI Restore is not just another testosterone booster. Though an increase in testosterone production alone is pretty cool, and one of the reported major benefits of Restore, it would be only part of the Restore optimized male matrix. Instead we have opted to see how many arguments we can start (and knock-offs we can inspire) this time by raising the bar for product expectations beyond what any one product can currently offer performance oriented males; by doing the whole job. Its okay, we are men, we like competition!

    Increased Free Testosterone

    Free-T (Proprietary Pure Avenacosides Matrix) - Seems most males who use supplements for lean mass gains have heard of Avena Sativa. Yeah, I know, lots of products already have some form avena sativa or its extracts in it, so what makes this one special? Of course we used an extraction process for maximum active compound content (greatest possible amount of active milligrams per capsule), but in truth Restore™ as a product is special, our Free-T (Proprietary Pure Avenacosides Matrix) from avena sativa just works well in the whole matrix to provide maximum results.

    In the body testosterone travels around in two forms: Bound or inactive; meaning it is bound to a protein called SHBGB, and Unbound or free; meaning it is free to do manly things like build muscle. Basically there are phytochemicals in avena sativa called avenacosides A and B. Some studies indicate avenacosides increase actual active or free testosterone in the body by freeing up the bound testosterone from SHBG so there is more active testosterone.



    I will be running it as follows:

    Meal 1: 1 cap JW, 1 cap BAM, 1 cap Restore
    Meal 4: 1 cap JW, 1 cap Restore
    Meal 6: 1 cap JW, 1 cap BAM, 1 cap Restore

    NOTES: strength increasing from last week; pump was slow to come, but it was solid by exercise #4.

    4 rev. grip bent row – smith 155/25 155/25 155/20 165/22 + 8


    Notes: I train calves instinctively and do not really pay attention to strength changes. I use a variety of high reps and super sets to bring them to fatigue. The back work tonight is what I call the “B” workout. Earlier in the week I have done the heavy work focusing on the basic excercises. This workout is short and fast with a focus on shock techniques such as supersets, temp changes, 1+1/2 reps, x-reps, etc. The high reps and fast pace tonight gave me a good pump and I moved through it without a loss of strength or energy.

    DIET:
    NOTE: I keep a food log everyday, but it is tedious to put in here everyday. To make it more straightforward, I will just put the marco totals from the day and how many meals I ate. Once or twice each week I will post the entire food chart for a day.

    Meals: 6
    Macros: 290 protein / 240 carb. / 85 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (AM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes:
    On the weekends I usually drop my carbs from my baseline (300-300-75) and increase fat slightly. I add in some red meat and almonds throughout the day, while decreasing carbs later in the day. This gives me a little variety from the work week.

    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Training was productive today; it was a good day to begin the first week of the log that will establish the baseline for future gains. I did not notice any effects of the EVOLUTION STACK today, but I do not expect any for a few more days. Legs tomorrow…

    First Set of Update Pics


    First set of progress photos for the LOG, taken Jan. 1, 2007:



    The first set of pics posted were taken the week before I competed on November 11. This set is about 8 weeks later and 20lbs heavier, so this is the baseline for the log.

    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE

    Notes: Typical Sunday. Less meals than during the week and lower carbs, just because I wake up later and go to bed earlier.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Great quad workout, but it was not a typical day; pretty much laid around waiting for the new year to roll in.

    NOTES: Gym didn’t open until 11 today, so that had me a little off. My body doesn’t know training in the middle of the day, so it was tough to get into a flow. Strength was not great, but I had a decent pump.

    DIET:
    NOTE:

    Meals:
    Macros: 280 protein / 225 carb. / 75 fat
    Supplements:

    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Woke up late and went to bed early, so I stuck with my normal meals and let the carbs drop.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Another screwy day with the holidays: different sleep schedule, workout time, and meals. Tomorrow will be back on track.

    NOTES: This was supposed to be a rest day, but I am playing catch up since I was closed out of the gym yesterday. At least I was back to my normal workout time. Energy was good; strength was a steady increase from last week. Pump was decent.

    Notes: Back on track with the eating schedule. Ate every 2 hours; 4 shakes and 3 whole food meals.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: The holidays are just not made for a gym addict. Today should be the last time for awhile holiday hours change my split. I still had a good training session and ate well. No distinct effects from the EVOLUTION STACK, but I am not expecting anything for a couple more days.

    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Two solid training sessions. Just about through the first week, so next week’s log should show some tangible results of the EVOLUTION STACK. My strength is consistently increasing.

    NOTES: AM Cardio was good – moderate intensity. PM lift was not great, but not awful. Delts have always been a weak point and I am working on gaining some strength in the press. All the supersets and drops were strong and there was no loss of energy, but the pump never came. Stayed pretty flat throughout, but that is more the result of a long day at work.

    DIET:

    Meals: 7
    Macros: 315 protein / 280 carb. / 81 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Normal diet: Ate every 2 hours; 4 shakes and 3 whole food meals.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: As I move through the next four weeks, Thursday’s should be a good gauge of the effectiveness of the EVOLUTION STACK. Delts are a lagging area and a weakness in both size and strength. Some tangible results is size and/or strength would say a lot for the stack. So far there is promise and I have had solid workouts all week.

    Weight Update


    Here are the results of the second bi-weekly weight check:

    1-5-07:
    WEIGHT = 194.8
    BF = 5.9%

    1-1-07:
    WEIGHT =194.6
    BF = 6.1%

    NOTE: I am taking the BF off a tanita scale. I know this is not accurate, but I am hoping it will at least serve as a gauge of + / - from the start. I never use BF% for competition prep. but I thought it might be useful for the log.

    NOTES: No morning workout on Fridays. PM workout was solid. About half way through the chest training I had such a pump it hurt to stretch. This workout is all about moving fast and keeping the muscle pumped, but I still managed to stay strong to the end.

    DIET:

    Meals: 7
    Macros: 305 protein / 280 carb. / 80 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine

    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Normal diet: Ate every 2 hours; 4 shakes and 3 whole food meals.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Really intense pump and good strength throughout the workout. Ready for a weekend of hard training.

    So far I have seen no negative sides to the EVOLUTION STACK. I am starting to feel some strength gains and I am confident this will start to show in the log through next week.

    DIET:

    Meals: 6
    Macros: 300 protein / 260 carb. / 75 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (AM and PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Weekend Diet: drop one meal (6 total) and drop carbs a little. Sat. and Sun. are shorter days than M-F, and I spend most of the weekend training or resting. A good chance to switch some carbs for protein and not feel the energy loss.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Typically I do arms on Saturday morning and a light/fast back session at night, but this week my training partner could not make it for arms until later in the day so I switched it up. The fast back training got tossed out quickly – I felt great and strength was through the roof. Reverse grip BB row was a PR since I started on focusing on form a few months ago. I found the rack pulls to really surprise me: no bouncing, just clean pulls from a complete stop. I had never done more than 3 with 495 and that was doing fast reps using the bounce off the rack.
    Arm training was solid. My bi’s were still gassed from the morning, but I had the right energy to blast through it. Weights were a bit lower than if I hit them first, but I still worked them just as hard.

    NOTES: Today was the strongest I have felt since I got off the stage last fall. I had energy and power through low reps, drop sets, supersets – all of it. 505 on the smith squat to just below parallel for 8 reps was a PR and it was my third set doing supersets with deep partial leg presses. The PM hamstring workout was also strong. 315 on the stiff leg for 6 reps with strict form.

    DIET:
    NOTE:

    Meals: 5
    Macros: 275 protein / 250 carb. / 92fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (AM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: I slept in a little today and trained at 11 instead of the Sunday usual of 8:00. I also knew I would get to bed earlier, so without forcing huge meals, I dropped one and pushed the fat up in the 5 meals. I have found it very beneficial to do some macro. Manipulation on the weekends, especially since M-F are strict and consistent.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: The numbers tell the story today. Great quad workout and no drop off for the PM Hamstring workout. Could this be the start of the EVOLUTION…

    20/11 – 15/7
    20/12 – 15/8

    CARDIO: Gauntlet, 30 min intervals, level 14

    NOTES: Monday is an easy one after the leg thrashing on Sunday. The shoulder workout was short and fast – I really just tried to get some blood pumping into the muscle and hit it from some new angles. The cardio was tough, but it really helped to workout some of the soreness from leg training.

    DIET:


    Meals: 7
    Macros: 330 protein / 270 carb. / 85fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (AM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: With no morning lift and low impact at night, I intentionally switched 30g of carbs for protein.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Not much to speak of here. Gearing up for what I hope and expect to be a week of new strength on all muscles.

    NOTES: The AM workout was quick, but I had some good intensity. I put some effort into hitting abs like any other muscle and really focused on squeezing.
    The evening workout was nothing special. My mindset was good and really went after it, but I just could not get any strength in the lifts. I did start the workout on the bench for the first time in probably 6 months. I kept it on the lighter side, just trying to stay in the 10 rep range, but it was a struggle. I did get some redemption in the tri workout. The pump came fast and stuck through to the end.

    DIET:

    Meals: 7
    Macros: 330 protein / 270 carb. / 85 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Normal diet: Ate every 2 hours; 4 shakes and 3 whole food meals.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: I was hoping for more positive results on the chest workout, but it was not my night. Nothing negative I can really attribute it to, I just did not have the power/strength that I have felt the past couple weeks.

    NOTES:
    The morning leg workout was my short duration workout, aiming at a pump and different angles. Felt good all the way through it and it met my goal.

    The last back session was so productive I went with a lot of the same moves. I pumped up fast doing chins and continued to make some steady gains on the rows. The rack pulls were a new PR. I got one more rep with 495, each rep from a dead stop. The rest of the workout was strong, but I hit a wall at the end.

    DIET:

    Meals: 7
    Macros: 325 protein / 270 carb. / 86 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine

    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Normal diet: Ate every 2 hours; 4 shakes and 3 whole food meals. (Yes, it really is the same everyday).


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: I hit the gym at night ready to make up for the poor chest workout the night before and I think I did just that. This workout got me back to consistent progress.

    I have noticed that for the past week I have had a very difficult time getting settled at night and going to sleep. It was the worst on this night and my body just could not relax. I have to disregard the stims – I have been using so many for years and training at night that I know it isn’t that. I will keep my eye on this and see what happens for the rest of the week.

    CARDIO: 30min, gauntlet, level 13-14, intervals

    NOTES:
    As I mentioned yesterday, I was so wired and restless I really struggled to settle down for bed. Once I finally relaxed, I slept fine, but I was terrible restless. I decided to take this morning off instead of the usual Friday morning. After the third consecutive restless night I was not up to par in the morning.

    As the day progressed I pulled it together and I was ready to go for delts. The Db presses felt good; I kept them controlled and really focused on bringing my shoulders to failure. I also got a great burn and pump doing the full side raises into the partials. I think the partial side raises are really hitting them deep; hopefully there will be some growth to prove this.

    DIET:

    Meals: 7
    Macros: 325 protein / 275 carb. / 86 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: Normal diet: Ate every 2 hours; 4 shakes and 3 whole food meals. (Yes, it really is the same everyday).


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: My energy level was good and I felt strong for the shoulder workout, but my concern is more with how I felt in the morning. The night before I was so restless, but at the same time so tired. I really felt it in the morning, so lets see if it keeps up.

    Weight Update


    1-12-07
    WEIGHT = 196.6
    BF = 5.7%

    1-5-07:
    WEIGHT = 194.8
    BF = 5.9%

    1-1-07:
    WEIGHT =194.6
    BF = 6.1%

    NOTE: I am taking the BF off a tanita scale. I know this is not accurate, but I am hoping it will at least serve as a gauge of + / - from the start. I never use BF% for competition prep. but I thought it might be useful for the log.

    NOTES:
    The morning chest workout went very well. This workout is all about squeeze and blood flow and I really met that objective. I pumped up and worked my chest hard without putting the extra strain on the rest of my body with heavy weights. I was not as strong on the calves as the previous workout, but they pumped up and got extremely vascular.

    DIET:

    Meals: 7
    Macros: 340 protein / 265 carb. / 90 fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (PM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: For the last meal I went with some beef. With no PM training I went for the higher protein and fat and left out some carbs.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: This was a low impact day, but I got some good work in. The morning weigh in was definitely positive with the 2lb gain.

    On the downside, the night before (Thursday) I was once again very wound up and had a terrible time getting relaxed and going to bed. Tonight I took my final dose of JW, BAM, and Restore earlier, but without training tonight I will be laying around for awhile relaxing. It might not be a good test to see if taking the Stack earlier makes a difference.

    DIET:

    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: I did some experimenting today to see how I would feel and look with lower carbs and increased fat. Tomorrow when I train legs it should show how this type of diet affects my energy levels.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: This just was not my day for training. I had some pain in my forearm (tendonitis for a couple years, it flares up here and there), so by the time I got through bi’s it was too tight and numb to do tri’s. My strength was not there on the bicep workout and I was probably squeezing the bar too hard trying to force myself into a rhythm. I finished the workout with 30min on the gauntlet, which always feels good (to finish).
    After some food, rest, and ice my arm was ready for back. This is my alternate workout, so I decided to hit traps heavy to start – this felt good and it was definitely a change from typically hitting them at the end of a back workout. Once I worked into the back training I was back to feeling “off” like I did in the morning. Some exercises felt good (chins, db rows), but most of the workout felt weak and I really just could not get into the flow of the workout. Not really anything I can attribute it to, just one of those days that seem to happen.

    Time: 5:00pm

    150/10

    Seated leg curl – 1 leg – SUPERSET – 1 leg lying curl

    NOTES: Another PR on the smith squat and everything else felt really strong. Energy and strength lasted all the way through to the last sets of extensions. The ham workout was a struggle, but strength was right where it should be.

    DIET:

    Meals: 5
    Macros: 275 protein / 300 carb. / 90fat
    Supplements:
    - Pre-workout: 2 venom, 1 scoop NO Shotgun (AM)
    - Post Workout: 5g creatine, 5g Leucine, 5g Glutamine
    - Meal 1: Ultra 4 multi; 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 3: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 RESTORE
    - Meal 5: 1 SesaMax; 2 CLA, 1 JW, 1 BAM, 1 RESTORE
    - 1 digestive enzyme with each meal

    Notes: I increased the carbs after dropping them down a little yesterday. The low day did not hurt my energy for legs and I think the variety of extra fat yesterday was beneficial.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: Another PR and another solid leg workout. Legs were strong, pumped, and vascular. The AM session was all out – strength was not just in numbers, but how I could handle the weight in supersets and drops, etc. and keep pushing hard.

    Notes: Back on the normal weekly diet plan with one small change – I left work early for a dr. appt. then went straight to do cardio, so Meal 5 got pushed back. I made Meals 5 and 6 a little bigger and dropped meal 7.


    DAILY ASSESSMENT: As always, I have low expectations for Mondays. The goal is to do some cardio, abs, and calves and get recovered from Sunday’s leg workout, and get ready for some solid lifts the next three days. I also worked in tri’s since I missed them Saturday. I had a good pump and felt strong, but nothing exceptional.

    Weight Update: Day 18


    1-16-07: DAY 18
    WEIGHT =196.2
    BF = 5.4%

    1-12-07: DAY 14
    WEIGHT = 196.6
    BF = 5.7%

    1-5-07: DAY 7
    WEIGHT = 194.8
    BF = 5.9%

    1-1-07: DAY 3
    WEIGHT =194.6
    BF = 6.1%

    NOTE: I am taking the BF off a tanita scale. I know this is not accurate, but I am hoping it will at least serve as a gauge of + / - from the start. I never use BF% for competition prep. but I thought it might be useful for the log.
