13 Jan Day 17 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
I managed to get in a chest and tricep routine today, despite a cold from hell and stitches from dental work. The routine was light due to Drís orders, but I still enjoyed myself. Actually it was a very nice change to get in a moderate workout for a change, rather than lifting so heavy all the time.
Food consumed was down due to the lack of an appetite, to say nothing of the dental work. Before even hitting the gym I could tell my strength just wasnít what it normally isÖ..but I was determined to do what I could With that being said, here is what I did.
Flat Bench DB Press 15x50 to warm-up 10x60/ 12x70/ 12x75/ 12x70 (easy-moderate effort)
Incline DB Flys 10x30/ 10x35/ 10x40 (easy effort)
Incline DB Press 10x50/ 10x55/ 10x60 (easy-heavy effort)
Cable Pushdowns 20x120/ 15x140/ 15x150/ 12x150 (easy-moderate effort)
Cable Kickbacks 12x35/ 10x40/ 10x40 (easy-moderate effort)
Dips 15 reps x 4 sets at BW (easy effort)
Chest Press 15x200/ 12x220/ 8x240 (moderate effort)
Pec Dec 15x100/ 12x110/ 10x120 (easy-heavy effort)
That was it for the day. I was exhausted, but my triís were really pumped. Like I mentioned, it felt good not to go so heavy for a change.

15 Jan Day 19 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
After sleeping like a rock last night, I was feeling well enough to see what I could do in the gym today. So after a breakfast of 2 cups of oats, 1 piece of toast, a protein shake, multiís, decaf and my supplements, we headed out.
The wife spent an hour on the treadmill while I spent my time doing what I could for shoulders and traps. After the first set, I could tell strength was going to be good today. I didnít realize just how good until I got going! Here is what I did.
DB Shoulder Press 15x40/ 10x50/ 10x55/ 10x60/ 8x65 (easy-heavy effort)
I was amazed at how light the weights felt! I actually held myself back to ensure I had the endurance to complete my routine.
DB Shrugs 15x60/ 15x70/ 15x80/ 12x90/ 12x100 (moderate effort)
Shoulder Press Machine 10x200/ 10x190/ 9x180 (moderate-muscle failure)
Even though I went to muscle failure, this was a personal best on this exercise! If you check my log, I normally lower the weights by 20lbs for each set, instead of 10lbs.
Reverse Pec Dec 10x100/ 10x110/ 10x120/ 10x130 (moderate-heavy effort)
Hammer Strength Shrug Machine 15x180/ 12x270/ 12x270/ 12x270/ 12x360 (easy-heavy effort)
I was really enjoying this workout. I had some crazy pumps going, endurance was excellent and I was feeling really strong!
Lateral Raise Machine 10x25/ 10x30/ 10x35/ 10x40 (easy-very heavy effort)
The 40lbs at 10 reps was a personal best for me on this machine!
Lateral Cable Raises 10x35/ 10x40/ 10x40 (moderate effort)
Lateral DB Raises 6x20/ 6x25/ 6x30/ 6x35/ 6x30/ 6x25 (moderate-muscle failure)
These sets were all super-setted, with less than 15 secs of rest between sets. My delts were totally fried and burning like crazy! What an amazing pump I had going after doing this many reps!
That was the routine for the day. Amazingly enough, the wife did an hour on the treadmill, and we both finished at the same time. Strength and endurance was outstanding for me today! This was a 10 all the way! I am amazed just how quickly my strength is returning. I canít thank ALR Industries (and FnF) enough for allowing me to test this supplement stack!
Tomorrow is leg and ab day. If that workout is anything like todayís was, I will have to crawl out of the gym!

16 Jan Day 20 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
I guess 2 good days in a row was too much to ask. I started out well, but did something to my left knee, so I had to take it easy. I have no idea what I have done, but there are days when it just wonít cooperate with me and starts to tighten up. But Iím ahead of myself.
The amount of food consumed today was slightly above average. It consisted of 1 cup of oats, 4 egg whites and one whole egg, multiís, decaf coffee, a chicken sandwich on wheat, cottage cheese, chicken cubes and crackers, grilled chicken breast, sweet potato, green beans and a couple of protein shakes. With that out of the way, here is what I did tonight.
Unilateral Leg Press Machine to warm-up with. 20x90/ 20x135/ 15x180 (easy effort)
I started feeling some tightness in my left knee at only 135lbs. I made sure I wasnít placed any abnormal torque on it, and that my leg was properly positioned. I have no idea what I have done to it, but this happens from time to time. So rather than risk a serious injury, I decided to take it easy tonight, even though I was up for a heavy routine tonight.
Squat Machine 12x90/ 12x180/ 12x270 (easy effort)
This routine didnít create any pain, but the tightness was getting worse and worse.
Hamflexor 12x50/ 12x60/ 10x70/ 10x80 (easy-moderate effort)
Seated Ab Crunch Machine 10x60/ 10x70/ 10x80/ 30x50 (easy-moderate effort)
Standing Calf Raises 20x250/ 20x250/ 20x300/ 20x350 (moderate effort)
Captín Chairs 4 sets of 15 reps
Leg Presses 12x270/ 12x360/ 10x450/ 10x540 (moderate-heavy effort)
That was my routine for the night. I could have gone a lot heavier on all those lifts, but I simply had to take it easy on my knee. What a shame too! I was really pumped up for it tonight.
Iíll be taking tomorrow off, then it will be back/biís on Thurs., followed by chest/triís on Fri.
On a final note, all the new yearsí resoluters were in the gym tonight. Sure was tough just trying to get to a machine. Musta been 30 new people in the gym tonight. I giveíem 6 weeks and they will start dropping like flys.

18 Jan Day 22 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
Weight yesterday morning remained at 208lbs. I guess this cold has kept my appetite down a bit more than I thought. But it is almost gone, so maybe I can still add a pound or 2 before this log comes to an end.
Tonight was my back and bicep routine. The amount of food consumed today was average, with plenty of protein from eggs, cottage cheese, chicken and wheat crackers, and some oats, sweet potato, fresh green beans, couple of protein shakes, multiís, decaf coffee, plenty of water and of course my supplements.
I got to the gym this afternoon and could tell immediately that I just couldnít muster up the intensity I wanted. Strength was very good today, just the intensity was missing. Here is what I accomplished.
Wide-grip cable pulldowns 16x140 to warmup with. 10x180/ 10x200/ 10x200 (moderate-heavy effort)
Straight Arm Cable Pulldowns 10x150/ 10x150/ 10x150 (easy effort)
Hammer Strength Iso Rows 10x135/ 10x160/ 10x180 (moderate effort)
Wide-grip Pullups 10, 10, 9, 1 = 30 reps Wouldnít you know itÖ..I simply couldnít manage that last stinking rep on the 3rd set!
Preacher Bench DB Curls 10x30/ 10x35/ 10x40 (moderate-heavy effort)
I got a really good pump to my biceps with this routine, as I cut down my rest time between sets to about 30 secs.
T-Bar Rows (alternating between wide grip and hammer grip) 10x135/ 10x145/ 10x160/ 8x135 (moderate-muscle failure) The last 2 sets were super-sets. My lats were really burning at the end of this routine.
Cable Curls 10x100/ 10x100/ 10x100 (moderate effort)
Barbell Curls 10x65/ 10x65/ 10x75/ 8x85 (moderate-muscle failure)
As you may be able to tell, I kept the weight relatively constant tonight and increased the reps where I could. Endurance was good tonight, strength remains excellent for me. But as I mentioned, I just couldnít get the intensity level I was looking for. The dull, dreary, nasty rain/snow mix today may have had something to do with it.
Tomorrow Iíll hit chest and triís, then take a break for the weekend. My oldest and youngest had birthdays this week, and I owe them some family time. Go Saints!

19 Jan Day 23 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
Work was a drag for me today. It was one of those days I just couldnít seem to wake up. Felt like I could have slept all day, if it wasnít for that JOB. But, I owe, I owe, so off to work I go! Today I had my oats, 4 egg whites and 1 whole egg, multiís, decaf coffee, a chicken sandwich, cubed chicken breast with crackers, a banana, couple of protein shakes and for dinner, more chicken, a sweet potato, green beans and of course my supplements. Now, on to the routine.
What a workout tonight! Strength and endurance was awesome for me. I was really surprised I had it in me tonight, considering I really wasnít hyped for it. Here is what I managed to accomplish tonight.
Flat Bench DB Press 15x60/ 15x60/ 10x80/ 10x80/ 10x90 (easy-heavy effort)
Iím going for the 100lbs DBs next week.
Incline DB Flys 12x35/ 10x40/ 10x45/ 10x40 (moderate effort)
Incline DB Press 10x60/ 10x65/ 10x70/ 10x75 (moderate-heavy effort)
The 10 reps at 75lbs was a personal best for me!
Tricep Cable Pushdowns 12x150/ 12x150/ 12x150/ 12x150 (easy effort)
Weighted Dips 15xBW/ 15xBW/ 12xBW+35lbs/ 12xBW+45lbs (moderate effort)
Hammer Strength Iso-Wide Chest Machine 10x135/ 8x160/ 5x165 (moderate-muscle failure)
The 5 reps at 330lbs (165lbs each arm) was a personal best for me on this machine.
Cable Kick-backs 10x35/ 10x40/ 10x45 (easy effort)
Chest Press Machine 10x220/ 10x260/ 4x300 (heavy-muscle failure)
The 4 reps tied a personal best for me on this machine.
As I mentioned, strength and endurance was excellent for me tonight. This routine was a 10 for me all the way! All the stars aligned for me tonight, and I left the gym feeling awesome! The Evolution stack was doing itsí thing for me tonight! FnF was right, this stack just gets better and better as you go along.
Iíll most likely take the weekend off, and snow is forecasted for Sunday. Crazy weather huh? This time last week, it was almost 80 here. Oh well, as long as the Saints win!

20 Jan Day 24 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
Late Entry: This routine was completed Saturday, but with the playoffs, Iím just now getting around to logging it. Sorry all.
My daughter came into town and wanted to go to the gym, so I ended up doing a leg and abs routine. One nice thing about lifting on a Saturday morning, there gym was pretty much empty. Here is what I did.
Unilateral Leg Presses to warm up 20x90/ 20x135/ 15x180/ 15x225 (moderate effort)
Squat Machine 12x90/ 12x180/ 10x270/ 10x360 (moderate effort)

Weighted Ab Crunches 10x60/ 10x70/ 10x80/ 10x80 (moderate effort)
Standing Calf Machine 20x250/ 20x300/ 15x300/ 15x350/ 15x400 (moderate-heavy effort) The 400lbs represents the entire stack on this machine.
Hanging Leg Raises 4 sets of 12 reps each (moderate effort)
Leg Presses 12x270/ 10x360/ 10x450/ 10x540/ 8x630 (moderate-very heavy effort) The 8 reps at 630 is a personal best for this old man.
That was it for the day. Overall, this was an excellent routine for me. Intensity was great, and the weights didnít feel as heavy as they normally do. I would have to give this routine another 10 all the way. I must admit, I really like this stack! ALR has hit a homerun with this one!

22 Jan Day 26 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
Today was shoulder and traps day for me. Food consumption was excellent today, consisting of 1 cup of oats and 4 egg whites with cheese for breakfast, along with decaf coffee, multiís and my supplements. Lunch and snacks was a chicken sandwich on wheat, cottage cheese, 10oz of cubed chicken breast and crackers, almond granola bar, grilled chicken breast for dinner with a sweet potato and mixed vegetables. Throw in a couple of protein shakes and Iím off to the gym. Here is what I managed to accomplish tonight.
DB Shoulder Press 15x40 to warm-up with. 10x50/ 10x60/ 10x65/ 9x60 (moderate-muscle failure) The 10 reps at 65lbs is a personal best for me at that weight. I was going to attempt the 70ís but they were being used, as were the 75ís, 80ís and 85ís.
DB Shrugs 15x80/ 12x90/ 12x100/ 12x110 (moderate effort)
Shoulder Press Machine 8x210/ 6x230/ 2x250 (heavy-muscle failure)

23 Jan Day 27 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
Am I the only one starting to freeze to death? Man winter finally made its appearance with a vengeance! Low on Friday is supposed to be 14! Time to snuggle with the wife!
Food consumed today was very close to what it has been throughout this entire log, consisting of oats, eggs with cheese, a chicken breast sandwich on wheat, cottage cheese, cubed chicken breast with wheat crackers, salmon, sweet potato, green beans, a couple of protein shakes, my multiís, decaf coffee and my supplements. Of note, I was at my Dr today for an unrelated problem and weighted in at 212! This is a gain of 6 lbs since starting this stack. I decided to change things up on my last back routine and leave out any direct bicep work. So with that in mind, here is what I did.
Widegrip Pulldowns 15x150/ 10x180/ 10x200/ 6x220 (moderate-muscle failure) The 6 reps is a personal best for me by 2 reps at 220lbs on this exercise.
Hammer Strength Iso Row Machine 10x135/ 10x180/ 8x205/ 6x225 (moderate-very heavy effort) That is 5 plates on each arm my friends, and it represents a personal best by 20 lbs for me on this exercise!
Straight Arm Cable Pulldowns 10x150/ 10x150/ 10x150/ 10x150 (easy effort)
T-Bar Rows 10x135/ 8x160/ 8x170 (heavy-muscle failure) The 170lbs is another personal best for me by 10 lbs on this exercise.
Hammer Strength Iso Back (aka Reverse Grip Pulldowns) 10x180/ 10x200/ 10x220 (moderate-very heavy effort)
Seated Cable Rows 10x180/ 10x200/ 8x210 (heavy-muscle failure) The 8 reps at 210 lbs tied a personal best for me on this exercise.
Widegrip Pullups 6, 5, 4 = 15 reps (heavy-muscle failure)
I decided to save the pullups to do as the last exercise, just to see how my strength would be at the end of my routine. I was very surprised I even managed 15 reps! I was totally exhausted after this routine, which I would rate as a 10 all the way.
Iím taking tomorrow night off, then Iíll do just a chest exercise on Thursday, followed by an arm routine on Friday. I finish up this log with a summation this weekend, and that as they say will be that. Till then, be safe all.

25 Jan Day 29 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
Well, this log will be winding down soon. Winter has shown itís cold face and there really is nothing to do but lift, eat and of course play with the wife! But lets get to the routine for today. The amount of food consumed was above average, consisting of the same of everything I have always been eating, just more of it.
Today was chest only day. I was eager to get to the gym as I wanted to test my strength on the DBs. Here is what I accomplished.
Flat Bench DB Press 15x60 to warm-up with. 12x70/ 10x80/ 6x90/ 6x100 (easy-very heavy effort)
The 6 reps with the 100lbs DBs was a personal best in both weight and reps! I had set myself a goal of reaching the 100lbs by Christmas time. I missed my goal, but by only 1 month to the day. Not too bad for this old man.
Incline DB Flys 10x35/ 10x40/ 10x45 (easy-moderate effort)
Incline DB Press 10x60/ 8x70/ 6x80 (moderate-very heavy)
The 80lbs DBs at 6 reps is another personal best for me in both weight and reps!
Cable Flys 10x60/ 10x70/ 10x70 (easy effort)
I had one serious pump to my chest, front deltoids and triceps. Love that feeling of being big and strong!
Hammer Strength Iso Back Machine 10x135/ 10x135/ 10x135 (moderate-very heavy effort)
For those that are no familiar with this type of machine; that is 135lbs each arm, for a total of 270lbs.
Chest Press Machine 10x200/ 10x220/ 10x240 (moderate-heavy effort)
Pec Dec Flys 10x120/ 8x140/ 8x150 (moderate-very heavy effort)
The 150lbs is a personal best on this machine for me.
That was the routine for me tonight. It was an incredible workout, a 10 all the way. The 3 personal bests for me tonight was an added bonus. Strength while on this stack has been awesome. I hate to come off of it, but Iím one to believe the body needs a break from supplementation from time to time.
Iíll get in my final routine this weekend, which will be an arm routine. Iím pretty busy tomorrow, so it most likely will be Saturday. Iíll also finalize this log with a summation of what I thought about the stack and potential improvements to it. Try to stay warm if you can!

26 Jan Day 30 on the ALR Industries Evolution Stack
And this is it. A final summation this weekend and Iíll close out this log. It has been fun.
Today I decided to do a bi/tri routine, even though my triceps were still a bit tired from last nights chest routine. Food consumed today was above normal, and my supplements are gone. With that, here is what was done.
Tricep Pushdowns 12x150/ 12x150/ 12x150/ 12x150 (easy effort)
1 Arm Cable Pushdowns 10x60/ 10x656/ 10x65 (easy effort)
EZ Bar Cable Curls 12x80/ 12x80/ 12x90/ 12x100 (easy effort)
Standing DB Curls 10x30/ 10x35/ 6x40/ 6x45/ 6x50/ 6x55 (easy-heavy effort)
The 6 reps at 55lbs is a personal best for me on this routine in both reps and weights.
Close Grip Bench Press 15x85/ 15x115/ 15x135/ 12x155 (easy effort)
I was completely surprised at how much strength my triceps had! I figured they would completely give out by now.
Preacher Bench Curls 20x120/ 15x150/ 12x180 10x200 (moderate-heavy effort) The 200lbs is a personal best for me on this exercise by 20 lbs.
1 Arm Cable Curls 12x40/; 12x45/ 12x50 (easy-moderate effort)
Dip Machine 10x250/ 10x250/ 10x270 (moderate-heavy effort)
Rope Pulldowns 12x90/ 10x110/ 10x120/ 10x130 (moderate-very heavy effort) The 130 lbs is a personal best for me on this exercise by 10lbs.
Preacher Bench DB Curls 10x35/ 10x40/ 6x45/ 6x50 (easy-very heavy effort) The 6 reps at 50 lbs is a personal best for me in both weight and reps.
Barbell Curls 10x65/ 10x75/ 8x85/ 5x95 (heavy-muscle failure)
The 5 reps at 95 lbs is a personal best for me in both reps and weight.
That was it for the day. I did a lot of sets since I didnít directly work my biís and triís this week. Overall, this was another great workout! I left the gym feeling strong with an excellent pump to my arms. Good luck to the testers that got chosen to go 8 weeks on this stack. They should see some great results. My summation of this stack will follow this weekend.

Evolution Stack Summation
Throughout this log, I tried to keep everything as constant as I could to eliminate variations. My food intake consisted of a high protein diet, with moderate carbs and fats, while attempting to keep my sleep the same each night. With that, here are my thoughts on the stack.
The Evolution Stack, consisting of BAM, Restore and Jungle Warfare is without a doubt the best strength gaining stack I have ever tried. The capsules are easy to identify for each supplement as they are purple and white, blue and red and white.
I feel ones mental attitude, physical fitness, amount of sleep and food consumed has a lot to do with their intensity. On the other hand, I found myself getting really pumped and able to train hard on this stack. Increasing the weights like I did, make it much easier for me to really let it all out so to speak.
Strength increase for me while on this stack was incredible! By far this was the best effect the stack had on me. I set at least half a dozen personal bests! I was up 20lbs flat bench DB presses; up 10lbs on the incline DB press; added 30lbs on the dip machine; and added an amazing 40lbs to my 1RM on the shoulder press machine!
Endurance with this stack was very good. Even though I tired during my workouts, the strength remained much higher further into my routine than I expected it would; a very pleasant surprise indeed. I really enjoy giving it everything I can at the gym, for as long as I can, and this stack didnít let me down.
I added 6 lbs while on this stack. Iíve always had a difficult time putting on weight, and 6 lbs isnít much for most people, but it is for me. Iím also certain most of it was lean muscle mass and very little fat as my waist line hasnít changed much at all.
Recovery was excellent for me. I am susceptible to DOMS, normally on the 2nd day. I noticed DOMS wasnít a problem for me at all, even when I set personal bests on various exercises!
The Evolution Stack is an incredible stack for someone wanting to kick up their strength levels. There were numerous times I took my workouts to ďfailureĒ, which for me was to the point I could not do another rep. With this stack, I increased weights or reps across the board. For someone on a bulking diet, they should see excellent results if they keep their protein intake high and get plenty of rest. Overall, I would rate this stack a full 10 on a 1-10 scale.
Thanks to ALR Industries, this stack really rocks!
01-28-2007 11:49 PM
Good results bro, and a bit different from mine. I hadn't followed up on others' progress with the stack AT ALL but now that my first month is done, I'm doing the rounds and looking what you guys have experienced.
Have a look, my log is right here: E V O L U T I O N: Grunt becomes ... What???
