    Thumbs up My quest for some BADASSMASS...a sponsored log.


    Well this is my first log on this site, and pretty close to my first post. I have been chosen by ALRI to run a test log of BAD ASS MASS standalone. I would like to say thank you very much for this opportunity again first of all.

    I'm pretty new to this site, and it's time to get my log started. I don't have enough posts on this site yet to add pictures, so I'm going to break up the beginning of this log to get my post count up.

    A little about me first....

    Name: Chris
    Sex: Male
    Age: 25
    Height: 5"8
    Weight: about 170.5
    Body Type: ecto-meso
    BodyFat: estimated at 11-12% not sure

    I've been lifting on and off since high school. I played soccer through my first semester of college, so I was always doing a ton of cardio and never got really big. This has become my interest lately, and I'm going to be attempting a slow and steady clean bulk as long as I feel like it. I am currently Y.M.C.A certified as a personal trainer, and I have an A.C.E. personal training certification that is expired.

    I am pretty much brand new to Anobolic Minds, but have been an active member over at BB.com since January 2006.

    I will be going for strength and size over the next 30 days. I would realistically like to gain 3-5 lbs of lean mass during this log, and more if possible. I am about 6 weeks back into a workout program after a 3 month break due to a sickness, an injury, and general summer/fall laziness. I've been attempting a slow and steady clean bulk with gradual strength increases. My strength is not where I'd like it to be, and I'm honestly a little embarrassed to post the weights with my lifts, but I'll go ahead and do so in this log.

    Stay tuned.....

    My exercise plan...


    I am going to be doing a 5 day split as close to the same days each week as possible:

    Mon- Chest/tris (focus on flat bench exercises)
    Tues- Back/bis
    Wed- Legs
    Thurs- REST
    Fri- Chest/tris (focus on angled bench exercises)
    Sat- Back/bis (focus on upper back w/ some shoulders)
    Sun- REST

    I do some abs 3-4 times a week at the end of my workout.

    I will post specifics on workouts as I perform them.

    Other supps....


    I will be running some other supps with BAM, all of which I have used together before:

    a.m. - NOW rhodiola rosea, Optimum fish oil, Animal Pak, Dymatize BCAA 2200 (2 pills)

    during workout - Scivation Xtend

    post - Shake consisting of 1 scoop Dymatize Elite Whey, 1 scoop Bio-Core Carbo to the Max maltodextrin, and 5 g Max Muscle glutamine. 1 pill Universal ALA, 1 pill Eclipse vanadyl sulfate.

    p.m. - Optimum fish oil, Dymatize BCAA 2200 (2 pills)

    I finished a log with the pre-workout supplement NOX SURGE, by Cutting Edge Labs, a few weeks ago. Although I thought about it, I did not want to introduce another pre-workout supp or creatine into the mix so near to starting this log. So my stack is pretty simple.

    I have some Cissus Rx on hand in case my shoulder acts up from an old snowboarding injury, but it's been fine since I started lifting again.

    Nutrition.....


    I am trying to consume between 3200-3500 calories a day from clean sources. I try to keep it as low sodium and saturated fat as I can. I avoid most sugar altogether. I will have a cheat meal maybe once every 2 weeks..like pizza and soda or something.

    Below is an example of my typical meals for the day:

    5:30am - 1 cup oatmeal, 1 cup nonfat yogurt

    8:00am - tortilla filled with 3 egg whites, 1 whole egg, one medium baked potato

    10:30am - tortilla filled with 8oz chicken breast, 1/2 cup rice

    1:00pm - 1 cup pasta mixed with 1/2 can tuna

    4:15pm - Post workout shake

    4:45pm - 10 oz skim milk, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 3 tbsp flax seeds, 2 tbsp natural peanut butter, 4oz nonfat vanilla yogurt, 1 medium banana all blended together.

    7pm - 8oz lean steak, 1 large baked potato or 2 medium red potatoes

    9:30pm - 1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese

    I work from 6am to 12:30 or 2:30pm most days, so I really spread out my calories over about 16 hours. Above is just an example of what I did today. I often substitute a bagel for a tortilla, for example.

    Today is actually my 4th day taking BAM, so I'm going to go ahead and list my last 3 workouts and then keep it current and updated from here on out.

    So far I've woken up the last 3 mornings with a slightly dry mouth, but it's not bad. Nothing else too noticeable yet...

    Prone rowing equipment, palms in close grip - 12@55, 2x10@65, 8@75
    "" "", overhand wide grip - 3x12@45

    Thurs 12/28


    I worked legs yesterday at about 3pm. My workout went as follows:

    Leg day:

    Squats - 12@155, 2x10@175, 8@195
    Seated leg extensions - 12@90, 2x10@105
    Hamstring curls - 12@40, 2x10@45
    Seated calf machine raises - 3x12@85
    Calf raises - 2x20

    Abs - bicyles 1min30sec

    Notes...Like I said, I'm a little embarrassed about my current strength levels, but I'm going up. I had pretty good focus even though leg day is my least favorite. I felt like I was having alot of fun working out...

    Pics...


    OK here's some quick pics that I got someone to snap. All my muscles are at least 24 hours cold. I definitely want to grow a little by the end of this log.

    Tonight was my Chest/tri workout #2. Friday is usually a rest day, but since the gym was closed Monday, and will be again next Monday, I'm going 5 days on and 2 days off.

    My workout went as follows:

    Decline DB press - 12@60, 2x10@70, 8@80
    Incline DB press - 12@35, 2x10@45, 8@55
    Cable crossovers - 2x12@40
    3 Way Tris - (a triset consisting of 10 skull crushers, 10 bent arm pullovers, and 10 close grip bench presses) - 3 sets @60
    Dips - 2x10
    DB kickbacks - 2x12@12

    Notes...I took my BAM at 7:15am and 8:30pm. I worked out at about 7:00pm. I felt pretty good tonight. I was going to increase the weight in my DB presses next week, but felt pretty motivated tonight. I increased the weight in both my DB presses by 5 lbs. I usually perform cable pressdowns with the rope attachment for my second tri exercise, but it appears that someone took it home. I substituted dips, which I haven't done forever, and it felt pretty good.

    Today's workout was my Back/bi day #2.

    My workout went as follows:

    Deadlifts - 2x12@135
    BB shrugs - 12@135, 2x10@155, 8@175, 8@185
    Upright DB rows - 12@35, 2x10@40
    Bent over DB lateral raises - 2x12@20, 10@25
    One-arm DB rows - 12@50, 2x10@55
    EZ bar "21's" curls - (7 curls through first half of ROM, 7 through upper half, and 7 full curls) - 3 sets@50
    One-arm cable curls - 12@30, 12@40
    DB concentration hammer curls - 2x12@15

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

    Notes...I don't really do deads right now, so I just throw a few quick sets in at the beginning of this workout to loosen up. I went up in weight slightly in BB shrugs, up 10 lbs in my second set of cable curls, and up 5 lbs in my 21's curls. I will be increasing the weights for several lifts again next week. I took the BAM at 8:30am, and will be again tonight. I worked out at about 2:00pm. Feeling pretty good...

    Today and tomorrow have to be rest days for me. I usually hate rest days.

    My weight was up to 172 on the scale at the gym post workout yesterday. This will be my last update for a few days, so I thought I should add my weight now.

    Nothing too noticeable yet in the pump department, but I've only been taking it for a week now.

    Since you have to take each pill 12 hours apart, I only have one before my workout.

    I'l be heading to the gym tonight after 2 rest days so I'm stoked to see in BADASSMASS brings anything new to the table this week...stay tuned.

    I had a great workout tonight. It was my Chest/tri day #1 again:

    Bench Press - 12@130, 2x10@145, 8@160
    DB Press - 12@45, 2x10@55
    DB Fly - 12@30, 2x10@35
    Incline EZbar Skull Crusher - 12@75, 2x10@85, 8@95
    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...Awsome workout tonight. I felt really driven in the gym. I took my BAM at 7:45 am and just again at 8:30 pm. I worked out at about 7:00 pm. I went up in all my chest exercises tonight.

    I think I'm starting to feel the effects of BADASSMASS. I've noticed a slight increase in appetite. The only downsides are that I've broken out on my upper arms and shoulders a little bit, and I've been slightly irritable. Both of these things could just be coincidence, however. I'm feeling really good about BAM so far.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll try to do this soon. I usually don't like evening workouts, but next time I have to do one I'll try and space it out right.

    I had a good one tonight. I'll be posting in a minute. Not sure when I'll be able to take both servings before I get to working out with doses having to be 12 hours apart, but I'll see if I can work it out at least once.

    Another awsome workout tonight. Back/bi day #1:

    Prone rowing equipment, palms in close grip - 12@55, 2x10@65, 8@75
    "" "", overhand wide grip - 3x12@45
    Cable lat pulldowns - 12@110, 2x10@120, 8@130
    Standing EZ bar curls - 12@50, 2x10@65, 8@75
    Seated incline DB hammer curls - 3x12@20
    Cable double bicep flexes - 2X12@30

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

    Notes...I felt really driven in the gym tonight. My rest times were shorter than last week as well. I had a partner tonight and we got through this workout quickly. I went up in weight in lat pulldowns, cable flexes, and weighted ab exercises. If the rest on this month goes as well as these last 2 days have, I'm going to be very stoked.

    It took BAM at 7:45 this morning, and again at 6:45pm. I worked out at about 5:45pm.

    I appreciate the advice and your interest in my log man, but I'm on a pretty good roll as it is. I'll see if I can swing this on one of my days though.

    Leg workout today:

    Squats - 12@160, 2x10@180, 8@205
    Leg extensions - 12@95, 2x10@110
    Hamstring curls - 12@45, 2x10@50
    Seated calf machine raises - 3x12@90
    Calf raises - 2x20

    Abs - bicyles 1min30sec

    Notes...Average workout today. I worked out a little earlier since I had work off. I took BAM at 10:00am, and worked out at about 3:00pm. I did go up slightly in all of my lifts today though. I felt good but my intensity wasn't quite as good as the last couple days. Then again, leg day is my least favorite workout so that could be why.
