    OBSERVATIONS

    I did the skull crushers again. My shoulder is limiting the exercises I can do, so I get to hit some particular ones more than I would prefer but it's all I can do. I repeated my personal bests of last time and then some. Every exercise was better than last go around.

    I will take pictures tomorrow as well as measurements in the morning. I will also report on strength gains. Pictures will not show up tomorrow though, because my digital camera is broken so I have to take them with a disposable camera and get the pics developed and scanned. Or maybe get a basic digital and use that, we'll see.

    I would say that I kept the same amount of bodyfat, or lost 1-2 pounds of it. Which would put my LBM gains at over 10lbs, downright fantastic for this kind of product.

    But wait, I will be extending this log since ALRI has chosen me to receive another set of bottles. To tell you the truth, it seems to improve over time, so I am pretty pumped for this next run.

    30 day recap: Measurements and strength



    STRENGTH CHANGES

    My training is on a double 5-day split, which I usually perform on a 2 days on/1 day off schedule. For this reason, the strength changes are all over a 2-week span, and NOT 4 weeks, sadly. But since I will be continuing this test over 4 more weeks, there will be plenty of time to correctly assess changes.

    Because my training has sets that are of 8, 5, and 3 reps, I calculated the difference between one time and the next for all 3 sets, then averaged this number.

    Cable Tricep Extension +10.00
    Upright Rowing +5.00
    Dumbell Rowing +10.00
    EZ Bar curl +10.00
    Barbell Military Press Smith +10.00
    Skull Crusher +15.00
    *Leg Press -30.00

    *I have performed only two leg workouts during this test. I had a leg day just before beginning and my next training day will be legs. My last leg day happened to be pretty awful, as I had not eaten in many hours. I do not feel that I have lost strength there.



    MEASUREMENT CHANGES

    Well, I was saying that I think I look bigger and didn't gain much fat or perhaps lost a little bit. The measurements confirm this. Sadly, it will be a few days until I have my pictures since they were taken with a disposable camera and will need to be developed. My digital has died. So anyways here are my measurement changes and graph:

    . . . . . . . . . . . . 12/28/2006 . . 1/26/2007 . . Change
    Bodyweight . . . . . . 217.0 . . . . . 228.0 . . . . +11.00
    forearm . . . . . . . . . 14.25 . . . . . 14.75 . . . . +0.50
    arm . . . . . . . . . . .. 17.50 . . . . . 18.50 . . . . +1.00
    deltoid . . . . . . . . .. 18.75 . . . . . 19.75 . . . . +1.00
    bellybutton . . . . . .. 37.50 . . . . . 37.00 . . . . -0.50
    thigh . . . . . . . . . .. 26.00 . . . . . 27.00 . . . . +1.00
    calf . . . . . . . . . . .. 18.00 . . . . . 18.00 . . . . +0.00




    CONCLUSIONS

    Over the course of the last month, thanks to the Evolution stack, I have seen my bodyweight go up, my body composition improving, my strength increase and my muscle mass undeniably increase significantly. As a matter of fact, a lean gain of 11lbs in a month is downright a GREAT gain, especially for a natural product.

    I must attribute part of these gains to muscle memory though. How much, that remains the question, but I must admit that I was unable to see any gains at all just before starting this stack so obviously it does something right. The product doesn't feel like anything, so if you are taking this as a steroid alternative you might get a bit disappointed. Not with the size and strength that you gain, which are very good, but with the inexistant aggressiveness boost or endurance emprovement. If anything I have lost some of these last two during this last month. Other factors may be involved though, as I have been experiencing some health problems that began before I received these supplements in case you were wondering. I didn't think they would affect my performance with these products but in retrospect I feel it is possible that they may have.

    I feel that this stack is great for those who need to stay natural and also - let us not forget - for PCT when EVERYONE is natural. I give the evolution stack an 8/10, which is excellent in my book. If endurance were improved as much as mass and strength, it would be a 10.

    OBSERVATIONS

    Hi! It's me Grunt. Long time no see huh? Well, I been busy. For a while I had known that I have gallstones and a fairly urgent need to get rid of them. Gallstones are asymptomatic until it's too late, you can't eat and your digestive system is basically shot, and they have to remove your gallbladder. Well, none of that for me. I know I have them, so I took the steps to get rid of them. So I did a liver flush, which yielded about 50 stones of ¼" in diameter or more. The flush I did requires a bit of a preparation and does put you out of commission for a bit. Also on one day you eat almost only carbs, save for a full cup of olive oil at night. Yum. So I didn't log that because mostly I was not feeling up to it.

    So I kept taking the supplements but who knows what I ate during that time. It was low calories. Also, I decided to increase the dosage of these supplements to see if I can get some of the boosts in aggressiveness and endurance that the others report.

    Grunt, I'd be interested to know how you went about getting rid of your gallstones. I know I've got them too, and its only a matter of time before I've got to have my gallbladder removed. Care to share what you did?

    Sure thing bro. I'll post the general thing here and then a link to a site that details these liver and gallbladder cleanses.

    Basically you prepare your gallstones by drinking stuff for a few days. Some people use lots and lots of apple juice and I used a root of which I do not know the name. But anyways you will find more details in the link below. Then on the day of the cleanse you eat nothing but carbs until 8 hours before bedtime, at which time you stop. Then you prepare an epsom salt and water solution (yum) which you drink in 4 delicious episodes. On the 3rd glorious epsom salt tasting, you also drink ½ to 1 cup of olive oil and also ½ to 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Then you head straight to bed.

    In that page they forget to mention to spread lots of petroleum jelly on your anus, but that is my suggestion. For sure you will not have any time to do this in the morning. Then on the next day you have plentiful, explosive diarrhea. With gallstones in it. You can count them, it's fun. Then between bouts of diarrhea you can have the last of the epsom salt and go back on the toilet. Remember to keep the petroleum jelly near the toilet and religiously use it "there". Otherwise you will feel like you spent a few nights in jail. If you know what I mean.

    This is more or less the recipe I used:

    Guys, I'm familiar with colon cleanses, but how do you know you have gallstones? I've seen the recipe you used Grunt and of course I will be doing it here in the near future. I'm such a lab rat, scratch, scratch.

    My doctor told me I probably had them. He said without ultrasound he couldn't tell for sure. I get bouts of gas like "pressure" on the righ side of my belly, just under the rib cage. Usually its not bad and goes away in a few days. Sometimes its quite unpleasant.

    Thanks for posting that Grunt. I'll be giving it a try soon. Vasaline. Yuck.

    I suspected something was wrong when I started having acid reflux more than only after eating/drinking the bad stuff. Then I realized I had some bit of pressure in the upper abdomen on the far right side. That was the telltale.

    Orals are very good at giving you gallstones.

    Very strong workout. Endurance is still not improved, but the weights are going up easily. Very nice. I am feeling less of my usual lethargy than I did at the lower dosage.

    OBSERVATIONS

    I had some yummy mexican food but my macronutrient intake got hit hard. Oh well, I'm bulking. AND I lost 2 lbs. I have a feeling they're coming back and they'll be the good kind.

    OK here's the deal: with the strength increases I had over the last month, I have now come to the habit of adding 5-10lb to every exercise - well except the long-TUT ones, which remain pretty static. Things are going so well that I did a new personal best on the DB militaries: 80lb x 3. This does not seem like much but if you saw me doing them, you would feel that they are worth 100's. I go further down on the eccentric than ANYONE I have ever seen. I get a better workout that way and I don't need to use super heavy weights. I said "Hey that was almost easy" at least 3 times during the workout and that was with 5-10lbs more than last time around.

    I am loving this higher dosage.

    Very strong workout. Last time I did my slow-motion bench with 135, it seemed I would never be able to do 3 sets of 8. Well I just did them. Everything felt light and easy. I remember thinking twice something like "Damn, too bad, it's almost over" - my workout that is. Bodyweight still increasing, 233lbs!

    I am feeling almost like I am on.

    Very hectic day today. Got up early and got very busy with appointments and shopping. My knees have begun hurting again, and doing legs was on the probram, so I took the day off. I will see how things to tomorrow, if legs are not doable then I will train arms.

    Interesting that you should ask that. Yes I am.

    At about week 2 or 3 I checked it often and I was averaging about 140/90

    Day before yesterday I took it twice:
    Pre-workout 149/93
    Post-workout 133/89

    The first reading had me unsettled and the second is a bit better. However I am slightly uncomfortable at these levels. I have been adding some celery seed extract, which does help, if I can only remember to take it every day, ideally twice a day. Being that my goal is to hit 250 this year, BP is a bit of a concern, especially being off-cycle at the moment. I will order some Twinlab blood pressure control pretty soon, because on cycle and 250lbs is bound to add some more to the already fairly intense pressure in my blood vessels.

    It is worth noting that I have gradually reduced my caffeine intake over the course of this log, from a huge amount to nearly zero. I know that caffeine plays a big role in vasodilatation and vasoconstriction, so this may be exerting an effect on my BP.

    Hey Grunt, this is a great log ! I know that everybody already knows how good Cissus works, so why not use this for your knee iissues ? Is it because you want to keep the effects of these three supps perfectly clear ?

    impressive gains! I was selected to continue on with the log as well. I see you've upped the dosage on all 3 supps. How is that working for you?

    Currently I'm up about 8lbs from 232 to just shy of 240 with a reduction in waistline...which i was supprised by as i cycled off of IGF for this log, so i wasn't expecting continued leaning.

    Very interested in your thoughts on bumping the dosage.

    Those are not long-TUT skulls bro. That would be utter madness. Only the exercises marked with at * are 3/3 TUT, with girlie weights. Now you're going to tell me that 115 on the skull crushers are girlie weights? I've never been particularly strong for my size so I'm not trying to beat any records here. I'm going for controlled, DEEP reps and working with the appropriate weight.

    I'm just 5'9" o lanky one.

    I am absolutely loving the upped dosage bro. For me the stack was a bit mild at the original dose. For example, I had no increased intensity in the gym or desire to keep on training longer. But with higher doses, I do. I think if you want the most out of this stack, get two of each and run them at least one cap higher than the recommended. Also, I think dosage must be size-proportional, so I can definitely see that I need the higher amount to get the same effect as the 165lb testers.

    OBSERVATIONS

    So I did another gallstone flush over the last few days, not eating right nor training. This morning looking at myself in the mirror, I concluded that I have lost some fat although I have enough to make it more difficult to see the small changes. But I weigh 236. Up 19lbs in 6 weeks that is crazy.

    I had a super workout. Pumps are ridiculous, really. Moving up in strength week after week consistently, as well as on a cycle. I am speechless.

    my mistake, I thought the skulls were TUT, for whatever reason I thought your entire split was TUT now... that's why i was very impressed.

    Nice gains so far.

    Nice gains? *NICE* gains?

    Dude, I wouldn't expect such gains from a prop/npp cycle. Granted there is some muscle memory involved but the gains are insane. The pumps are crazy and the strength gains are very good. Not like a heavy cycle, but a light one, sure.

    the only downside to this stuff that I can see is the price.

    That is what I mean bro. Nothing else besides some muscle memory but I am pretty sure that I am at new highs in terms of pure muscle size as well as strength.
