    Good workout again tonight. Back/bi day #1:

    Prone rowing equipment, palms in close grip - 12@55, 2x10@65, 8@75
    "" "", overhand wide grip - 3x12@50
    Cable lat pulldowns - 12@110, 2x10@120, 8@140
    Standing EZ bar curls - 12@55, 2x10@65, 8@75
    Seated incline DB hammer curls - 12@20, 2x10@25
    Cable double bicep flexes - 2X12@30

    Abs - weighted decline situps supersetted with weighted ball crunches - 3X12@45

    Notes...I had good focus and drive again. I was doing lat pulldowns, and realized they were pretty easy even though I just bumped the weight last week, so I added 10lbs to my last set. I also went up in my wide grip rows, but should have gone up 5 more lbs. I'll be upping the weight next week for my weighted ab exercises for sure.

    I took BAM at 6:30am and just now post workout at 6:00pm.

    This is the beginning of my 3rd week now taking BADASSMASS, and I'm definitely liking it.

    Leg workout once again today:

    Squats - 12@165, 2x10@185, 8@205
    Leg extensions - 12@100, 2x10@115
    Hamstring curls - 12@45, 2x10@50
    Seated calf machine raises -12@90, 2x12@100
    Calf raises - 2x25

    Abs - bicyles 1min30sec

    Notes...I felt really good today. I'm taking the BAM at 5:30am and 5:30pm from now on during weekdays. I worked out at 6:00pm tonight. I added some weight in leg extensions again, and added weight after my first set of seated calf raises was too easy. I will definitely add 5 lbs to my hamstring curls next week, and maybe more to squats and leg extensions.

    I noticed a vein starting to run up the side of my calf tonight. This was kind of cool as I've never really had any vascularity in my legs.

    I've had a slightly upset stomach for the last few days. I've been forcing myself to keep on point with my eating though.

    Friday night, and Chest/tri day #2 again:

    Decline DB press - 12@60, 2x10@70, 8@80
    Incline DB press - 12@35, 2x10@45, 8@55
    Cable crossovers - 2x12@50
    3 Way Tris - 3 sets @65
    Dips - 2x10
    DB kickbacks - 2x12@12

    Abs - Ball crunches with arms overhead supersetted w/ flat bench reverse crunches - 2x25

    Notes...Good workout. It felt good to get back in the gym after having yesterday off. I upped the weight in my 3 way tris, and my triceps were super pumped after my 3 sets. My muscles were feeling very full and hard tonight. I looked like I'd taken a NO product in the mirror post workout. It was awsome.

    I took BAM at 5:30am and again at 6:30pm. I worked out at about 7:30pm.

    Back/bi day #2 again:

    Deadlifts - 2x12@145
    BB shrugs - 12@165, 2x10@185, 8@205
    Upright DB rows - 12@35, 2x10@45
    Bent over DB lateral raises - 2x12@25, 10@30
    One-arm DB rows - 12@55, 2x10@60
    EZ bar "21's" curls - 3 sets@50
    One-arm cable curls - 2x12@40
    DB concentration hammer curls - 2x12@20

    Abs - a triset of 30 crunches, 30 reverse crunches, and 30 "V" situps, elbow bridge hold for 1 minutex2

    Notes...Interesting workout...I slightly pulled my lower back right at the beginning of my workout, which I've had problems with in the past. However, I felt very motivated to workout, so I muscled through it and it loosened up. I went up in weight in my DB lateral raises. I can bump up my BB "21's" next time too.

    I am surprised to report no increase in bodyweight this week. I have gone up in strength and feel bigger in the mirror. I'm wondering if I lost a little bodyfat or something, because my diet and training have been on point......

    Chest/tri day #1 once again:

    Bench Press - 12@135, 2x10@150, 8@165
    DB Press - 12@45, 2x10@55
    DB Fly - 12@30, 2x10@35
    Incline EZbar Skull Crusher - 12@80, 2x10@90, 8@100
    One-Arm Cable Pushdown - 2x12@50
    DB Hammer Skull Crusher - 12@20

    Abs - 30 ball crunches supersetted w/ 30 upright leg lifts - 2 sets

    Notes...I was feeling good after my day off yesterday. I was actually feeling a little bit of that Alpha Male mentality in the gym tonight, which I'm usually not like. I was having alot of fun working out.

    I went up a little in bench and skull crushers, and will be upping the weight next week for DB press I think. My muscles were feeling really full and hard again.

    I worked out at about 8:00pm. I took my BAM at 7:30am and 7:00pm.

    Notes...Pretty average workout. I did improve in a few lifts overall again. Strength increases are becoming pretty common while on BAM...

    Notes...Average workout. I did go up in hamstring curls though. I just didn't have great drive tonight and felt a little weak. We all have those days though, and this was just one of them.

    I got Chest/tri day#2 out of the way a little earlier today:

    Decline DB press - 12@60, 2x10@70, 8@80
    Incline DB press - 12@50, 2x10@50, 8@60
    Cable crossovers - 2x12@50
    3 Way Tris - 3 sets @65
    Dips - 2x12
    DB kickbacks - 2x12@12

    Abs - Ball crunches with arms overhead supersetted w/ flat bench reverse crunches - 2x25

    Notes...I was having fun again in the gym today, and felt good. I went up in my incine DB press, and am actually at the heaviest weight I've ever used for these. I know it's not much to some people, but I felt awsome putting it up. I also added 2 reps to my 2 sets of dips, so that improved a little. I'll be bumping up the weight in crossovers, and possibly 3-way tris again, next week.

    I've only got 5 or 6 days left of BAM, so I'm sad, but excited to see my strength go up a little more before I'm done.

    Back/bi day #2 again:

    Deadlifts - 2x12@155
    BB shrugs - 12@165, 2x10@185, 8@205
    Upright DB rows - 12@35, 2x10@45
    Bent over DB lateral raises - 2x12@25, 10@30
    One-arm DB rows - 12@55, 2x10@60
    EZ bar "21's" curls - 3 sets@55
    One-arm cable curls - 2x12@40
    DB concentration hammer curls - 2x12@20

    Abs - a triset of 30 crunches, 30 reverse crunches, and 30 "V" situps, elbow bridge hold for 1 minutex2

    Notes...I had a good one today. The workout felt pretty easy overall. I went up a little in my deads and 21's curls.

    I weighed myself again, and am only up about a half pound to 175 according to the gym scale I've been using. I'm beginning to think it's broken, and a couple other members have complained that their weight seems inaccurate as well. I hope that a stupid piece of equipment is not skewing the results of this log for me or ALR, because I've been eating perfectly and being totally honest.

    I definitely feel stronger and bigger though.

    Thumbs up Final Review


    Sorry to ALR and anyone following my log for the delay in posting my final review. I got a nasty sickness with 2 days left of BAM, and still haven't been back to the gym. I'm real pissed because I was trying damn hard to keep a good and detailed log.

    Well I've definitely lost size and strenght since getting sick due to lack of training and the impossiblility of eating right, so I'm not going to post after measurements or pics. I will say that I was at the biggest and strongest I've been in a long time right as I got sick and was almost through my full cycle of BADASSMASS.

    I would guess I was up 1/2 inch on my chest, 1/2 inch on my arms flexed (1/4 cold), and 1/2 inch on my quads. I was up a little over 5 lbs of solid lean mass when last I checked.

    I'll rate this product now:

    Strength - 9.5/10. I saw consistent increases in strenght each week, and I wasn't even taking a creatine. I think this would have been magnified if I was. I could really tell the biggest effect from BAM in strenght I'd say.

    Size - 8.75/10. I posted what I would estimate my gains from BAM to be, but I can't be sure due to my illness. I was pretty happy with the results in size, especially as a standalone product tester.

    Side Effects - 9/10. Hardly any sides. I had a dry mouth the first week, a little acne on upper arms and shoulders, and a little more lethargy than normal. All hardly noticeable.

    Recovery - 9/10. I was hardly ever sore during my cycle of BAM. I'd been lifting consistently for about 6 weeks before starting this product, so I wouldn't have had any severe DOMS regardless as I made no real changes in my routine. Always felt good post workout and was ready to rock and roll next time for sure.

    Mood - 9.5/10. I felt a little irritable and down sometimes, but not severe, and not that I can even blame this on the product since everyone has their ups and downs.

    Overall assessment - 9/10. This product did great as a standalonel. Everything I expected. I would definitely use this product again, and look forward to trying out the EVOLUTION STACK sometime in the future. I think the price is very fair too.

    Well there you have it. Thanks again to ALR for this opportunity, and sorry I had a little delay there at the end. I hope this log helped you guys out in some way, because it was a fun experience for me to keep this log for sure!
