    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.

  7. Are you keeping any eye on your BP?

  8. Quote Originally Posted by ryano View Post

    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 ?

    OBSERVATIONS

    Very busy day. For a bit I felt good enough that I had planned on going to the gym for a 3rd consecutive day, but lack of sleep got me.

  13. how much sleep do you get? I saw you took supps at 7am, and 1am..

    Nice TUT skulls... how are your elbows feeling with 3:3 TUT compared to normal speed?

    You weigh 2lbs more than me big boy.

  14. 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.

  17. LOL.. lanky one?

    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.

  19. if it is only those OTC supps you mention, then that truly is crazy.

    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.

    OBSERVATIONS

    Super workout. Intense, energetic. I have been mostly unable to perform well on my long TUT calf exercises due to an almost permanent pump in them. So much so in fact that walking quickly becomes painful after 5 minutes or so.

    Up a round 20lbs on my last day. Not bad for 7 weeks. I did put on some pudge around the midsection though, but I feel that I have put on a great deal of muscle, perhaps as much as 15lbs, mostly in the first part of this log though. The second part felt better, but the muscle memory had all been used up. Still the strength kept coming and coming. A very satisfying ending.

  24. Looks damn good my friend. 20lbs in 7 weeks is phenomenal.

    Great log, I'm going to have to try this sometime.
  25. Final Recap! Thank You Alri!



    STRENGTH CHANGES

    Here is again the averaged increase in weight used on the 3 sets per exercise. Note that I ran my whole 2-week split exactly 3 times during this test, so these results are all over 33 to 36 days and not indicative of the full strength gains over the 51 day period. Still, they give a good indication of what occurred.

    EZ Bar curl +20
    Skull Crusher +23.3
    Tricep pulldown +10
    Upright Rowing +15
    Barbell Military Press Smith +30
    Close-Grip Upright Rowing +16.6
    Reverse Pec Deck +16.6
    Pec Deck +45
    Bent-Over Row +20
    Split Squat Smith +46.6
    Leg Presss +90
    SLDL Toes Raised +51.6
    DB Split Squat +10
    Leg Curl +10
    Leg Extension +23.3

    So as you can see, strength increases have been very substantial over any 33-36 day subset of this 51 day run. Endurance was not significantly increased and for me, energy and aggressiveness only increased when upping the dosage from 3JW/3R/2BAM to 4JW/4R/3BAM although I did experience back and calve pumps for any reason at random times.Which was OK because it wasn't for many hours a day. This was just a fun indication of things working VERY well.



    CALORIES

    Averages for the whole 51-day log:
    Expended: 3,023
    Absorbed: 3,683
    Surplus: 660

    The calorie surplus was 665 for the first part of the log, and 655 for the second part, remaining statistically unchanged for the duration of the log, for an average of 660.



    MEASUREMENT CHANGES

    I am definitely bigger. The 20lbs gained is not ALL muscle, but certainly a good deal. It is interesting to note that my calves and thighs grew more over the last 21-day period than during the previous 30 day. This is easily explained by the fact that it so happened that I had 2 fewer leg workouts than everything else during the first 30 days, and also by the fact that I had trained legs the day before taking the final measurements after 51 days. Still, I feel that there is a measure of keepability to the girth increases and that it is neither only fat nor only pump.

    I am very surprised that my delts are not showing an actual increase in size, because they look much better, as I am sure the pictures will tell. Other than that, I experienced some nice continuance of gains on arms and even forearms, which is very satisfying. Of course, my waistline did take a hit during the second part and I must admit that I had not noticed this, due to the major increase in muscle mass. Still, I end the log with an extra inch of the soft stuff around the waist. I'll live.

    Here's the chart:




    CONCLUSIONS

    The last 21 days have shown me continued gains with the Evolution stack. In fact, these gains take me to my all-time muscle mass high, breaking my previous peak. I will point out that my natural genetic potential WAS maxed out before, but of course this stack takes the definition of "Natural potential" to a whole new level. I am sure I could keep on gaining for a while on this stack. It is a truly amazing thing. And for those thinking it cannot be better than good ole AAS, let me remind you that NO ONE remains on forever. To those who hate PCT I say this stuff will make you forget you are not on AAS, especially if you run it at a higher dose than 3/3/2 as written on the bottles.

    The only detail I can think of that could be improved is that BAM should come in a 90-cap bottle, if only to make it easier to scale the dosage of the whole stack. Doubling it may be a bit much, I have not tried it, and anything less will calculate to fractions of caps, leaving you at the end with a bunch of whichever kind you didn't scale for. I have received this stack for free as a tester of course, but I must keep the price of the stack in mind here, and at well over $100 for a stack that will last me 20 days or so, it is fairly pricey. You get what you pay for I guess.

    Guys, let me finish on this note: If you are hesitant to go on a cycle, try this stuff first. It will help you get much more out of natural training before doing something you may not be ready for.

    I want to thank ALRI for giving me the opportunity to experience this extraordinary stack and feel like I am on a cycle even though I am not.

    Final score: 9.5/10
