  1. Day Forty-Seven of Sixty

    Training

    ~: rep tempo of 3/0/x/0
    *: rep tempo of 2/0/2/0

    • *cable cross-over/~Db incline bench press superset:
      30 x15/75 x5

    • *close-grip cable row/~machine deadlift superset:
      53.3 x18/400 x6

    • *Cable front raise/Standing bb military superset:
      13.3 x16/120 x5


    Thoughts:

    Short and sweet, but brutal. My goal with this workout is to pre-exhaust the slow twitch fibers with high reps prior to bashing the fast twitch fibers with a heavy explosive set. Next week, I will impose an obligatory 2.5% weight increase on all of the big lifts when I do them again on Monday.

    Thoughts:

    I bumped up all of my lifts from last week by around 2.5% and I did two heavy explosive sets instead of doing just one set as I did last week. I didn't feel a single set provided enough stimulation. I want to do enough volume to ensure the muscles are properly stimulated to grow, but I also want to be sure they can recover in 48 hours so I can smack them again. Two sets feels just about perfect.

    Nutrition

    I'm officially cutting. I've gone over 12% body fat, so the next 3 weeks I will be shedding some lard. Cals are set around 2000/day with two refeed days each week. I plan to start doing more cardio as well.

    Training

    ~: rep tempo of 3/0/x/0
    *: rep tempo of 6/0/6/0

    • ~Barbell Squat: 220 x6, x6

    • *Leg extensions: 61.5 x10

    • ~Standing single leg curl: 50 x8, x8

    • *Lying leg curl: 61.5 x10

    • ~Cable crunch: 148.6 x10, x10

    • ~Hanging straight leg raise: x10, x10


    Thoughts:

    I bumped up all of my lifts from last week by 2.5% with no problem. I increased the width of my squat stance a bit and pointed my toes out a little more than I normally do. I could really feel the posterior chain kicking in hard, but my quads didn't feel it as much. I'm used to doing rather narrow stance, feet straight ahead squats that hit the quads more. I liked the wider stance though, it'll help me build a more powerful ass.

    Nutrition

    2nd day of cutting... I was hungry all day. In a weird way I draw some comfort from being back in cutting mode. I spent most of 2006 hungry and craving carbs; I guess I was missing the feeling of having the fat burning from my body. It ain't fun, but I find it to be an almost spiritual state.

  4. Day Fifty-Two of Sixty

    Note: This is my training from 2/21/2007. I was too busy fighting with the wife last night to post yesterday.

    Training

    ~: rep tempo of 3/0/x/0
    *: rep tempo of 2/0/2/0

    • ~Flat barbell bench press: 165 x6, x7

    • *Pec deck: 100 x10, 110 x7

    • ~Wide grip pull-up: BW+25 x6, x2, BW x4

    • *Stiff-arm pull down: 56.6 x10, x10

    • ~Seated dumbbell military press: 61.5 x6, x6

    • *Upright smith row: 85 x10, x9

    • ~Standing barbell curl: 85 x6

    • ~Dips: BW x19


    Thoughts:

    I bumped up all of my lifts from last week by 2.5% with no problem; I actually went 10 lbs heavier on my bench presses because I went too light last week. I am rapidly closing in on my PRs for the major lifts. I did lose quite a bit of strength from my long cut last year, but I've never gotten down about it. I am really happy with how I am progressing right now. When I start breaking those PRs, I will be doing it at a bodyweight 20+ lbs lighter than I was when I achieved them; that's pretty cool. A 193 lbs guy benching 85 lb dumbbells ain't nothing special, but for a 170 lb guy, that's not too shabby.

    Thoughts:

    I'm still getting stronger by the day. I like my new high frequency approach so far. Even though my glutes still had some DOMS from my squats on Monday, I worked the legs anyway and it didn't impede me at all.

    Nutrition

    I like cutting down from a lean condition. I'm only a few days into it and already my abs are more visible and more vascularity is apparent. Cutting down from tubby-land, it would take me weeks to see real changes. I am getting visibly leaner almost every day. I weighed in at 166 lbs this am, down about 1.5-2 lbs from a week ago.

  7. Day Fifty-Five of Sixty

    Training

    • Barbell squat: 220 x6, 135 x20

    • Plate-loaded squat machine: 270 x6, 340 x2, 390 x2

    • Stiff legged dead lift: 205 x6, 135 x15

    • Standing single leg curl: 56.6 x6

    • Hanging leg raise: x20 x15

    • Alternating twisting cable crunch: 146.6 x9 (each side)


    Thoughts:

    I decided to try the plate loaded squat machine for the first time today. I've used it before for calf-raises, but never for squats. I decided to try it out since it's a safe way to max-out on squat. I got two full reps, taking the machine all the way to the bottom, with 390 loaded on it. On my SLDLs, I wanted to go for 20 reps with 135, but my grip failed at 15, way before my hammies or back was ready to give up.

  8. Day Fifty-Seven of Sixty

    Training

    • Incline dumbbell bench press: 77 x6, x4

    • Flat dumbbell fly: 21 x10 (6 count up and down)

    • Machine deadlift: 440 x6, x4

    • Close-grip cable row: 95.3 x12 (6 count up and down)

    • Standing barbell military press: 127 x5, x4

    • Seated side lateral raise: 10.5 x12 (6 count up and down)

    • Smith close-grip bench press: 155 x6, 160 x8

    • Rope pushdown: 63.3 x10 (6 count down and up)


    Thoughts:

    I was a little unfocused in the beginning today; I found out last night that I'm being sued for $1200 bucks, which ain't a lot of money, but it still bugs the crap out of me because, as far as I'm concerned, I don't owe the guy squat. The details are unimportant...

    Anway, I found as I went along that my focus started to get better, especially after my lack of focus caused me to load 440 lbs on the deadlift machine instead of the 430 I had intended, 430 would have been a 10lb increase from last week. I was pleasantly suprised when I counted the plates to find that I put up a set of six and a set of four with 20 more lbs than I did last week.

    After a week of cutting, I definitely didn't have the same kind of strength gains I have been seeing. I was hoping to get two sets of six on all lifts, as I did last week, but the small weight increases I imposed on myself held me to fewer reps overall. That's not an unusual thing to have happen, but while on the EVO stack I've been hitting my new goals consistently. I believe cutting down has sapped a little of my stamina.

    I weighed myself and I'm down to about 164. I think this week will be a cutting week and then it's back to bulking again. I've already leaned out a lot more than I expected with just one week of cutting.

  10. Day Fifty-Eight of Sixty

    Training

    • Barbell squat: 225 x6, x6

    • Leg extension: 63.3 x12 (6 count up and down)

    • Standing single leg curl: 58.3 x6, x6

    • Lying leg curl: 63.3 x11 (6 count up and down)

    • Standing calf raise dropset: 210 x10, 160 x10, 120 x10

    • Seated calf raise: 135 x6 x6


    Thoughts:

    It feels good to be back to squatting 225. As pathetic as it is, that was my max squat even when I weighed 193 lbs. This past December, after 8 months of cutting got me down to 142 lbs, I was barely able to handle 165 lbs on the squat. Now, about three months into bulking, I'm 164 lbs and squatting the same weight I used to handle at 193. My goal is to get my squat up to 300 before I start contest prepping again in mid-July.

    • Overhead extension with 45 lb plate: x15


    Thoughts:

    I'm only 10 lbs away from my old 5 rep max for barbell bench press; I like that!!! This spring is going to be a new era for me, as I crush my old numbers and do it weighing 20 lbs less. As you can see, I put in some rest-pause reps for good measure when I feel it is appropriate. Hitting each bodypart 3X per week seems to be working great, although on reduced cals my recovery isn't quite as good. No matter, I'm back to bulking as of next week. .;.)

    I can't believe I have only one day left on the EVO stack... where did the time go?

  12. Madmanís Final Review of ALR Industries EVOLUTION Stack

    The sixty days I spend on the EVOLUTION Stack were the two most effective months of progress I have ever made when it comes to adding lean mass and gaining strength. The opportunity to test this stack came at just the right time for me. I was coming off of a contest prep phase and my body was primed for anabolism. I have also finally reached a point where I feel very confident in my ability to apply effective training and eating strategies that work for me. With these things working for me, the addition of the powerful EVO Stack was just what I needed to take my gains through the roof.

    Strength: 9 out of 10

    The strength gains were the single most impressive part of the EVO Stack. I saw my numbers jump up every week. When I started taking the EVO Stack, I experienced an undeniable increase in the speed with which I was gaining strength. This stack will be of tremendous benefit to competitors who want to rapidly get back to their off season strength levels after a contest prep phase. Hereís a chart of my strength increases, comparing my major lifts at the beginning and end of the sixty days:



    Size: 8 out of 10

    I gained a total of nearly 10 lbs during my sixty days and the last 2 weeks I was cutting (I took off about 2 lbs). The gains were quite lean considering that I was gaining an average of 2 lbs per week during the six weeks I was bulking on this stack. Iíd say better than half of the gains were lean. This stack will have you craving carbs like thereís no tomorrow and I was eating at 1000 calories over maintenance during the six weeks that I was bulking. Hereís a comparison of my starting measurements and final measurements:



    The gains that I really feel are in my back width, shoulder width and chest fullness; the before and after pictures show this quite well:







    Here are a couple of extra pics of how I look now after the EVO. My delts have really improved during this log (the separations are getting very deep), and my back is looking much wider.






    Side effects: 9 out of 10

    I experienced no significant negative sides. About 5 days into the stack, I did notice some increased skin oil production, but it subsided in about a week and no major acne resulted, just a couple of small pimples. Libido was normal throughout.

    Recovery: 8 out of 10

    My first week off of the stack, I am noticing more DOMS than I had experienced while on the stack. Recovery was rapid, considering that I was pushing heavier weights at each and every workout. I never felt overtrained and I effectively worked through some minor aches and pains I was having early on.

    Mood: 9 out of 10

    I didnít experience any negative effects on my mood. I did feel more aggression while in the gym, but it didnít affect the rest of my life. I actually felt really positive and good, and who wouldnít with the great strength and mass gains!!!

    Overall Assessment

    The EVOLUTION Stack is a great way to experience very significant strength and size gains with little to no negative side effects. The stack delivers on all that it promises and I definitely plan on running the EVO Stack a couple of times a year, especially when I'm coming off of contest-prep.

    Bottom line: The EVOLUTION Stack kicks some serious ass.

    Thanks again to FitnFirm, Viperspit for giving me the chance to test the EVOLUTION STack, and a big thanks all the folks at ALR Industries for developing innovative supplements that work.

  13. Wow man. Congrats on the incredible gains you made!

  14. you suck madman
