    "F*** Genetics!" Anabolic-Pump FTW!


    Some Days...

    Some days, the envisionment of what’s to come
    Clouds the thought processes of today,
    Yet the journey to the unknown is what drives me…

    I cast shadows on the sun,
    Leaving breathless marks
    As I expedient around the crossing barriers that act as brass knuckles…

    I am the sun-the moon, the starlit fields…

    I am, without a doubt,

    Myself…


    Story: I'm an aspiring pitcher who will be moving to Omaha, NE following my high school graduation this year... In an effort to reign supreme over the barbaric nature of what has come to be the journey to prosper over the undaunting spiritual aura which hovers profusely around me, I stand here and say,

    F*** Genetics!

    In entering the second semester of what is to be my last moment's of High school, I have taken it upon myself to deny the genetic code from crippling my chances of becoming a professional baseball player... Dare I say, professional...


    For 3.5 years of my life, anxiety has plagued me like a blood-indulging leech sucking on its prey... But in the process, the mentality to succeed has never been greater...

    For this past semester, I took it upon myself to enter a realm in which I had never entered before...

    And in the process, I said "F*** You, F*** You, F*** You!"

    Through the image of what was a reflection of whom I wanted to be, I feasted off the negativity of thoughts in which had blinded me from seeing the light... Each and every day, for when those thoughts make an attempt to paralyze the cervical cords on which bind me to the physical world, I scream like a vulture, "F*** You!"

    Me:


    5'10, 133-134
    Athletic, lean-mean pitching machine...

    Goal: Gain Weight!

    Supplementation:

    Protein: GF Pro Cherry/dutch Chocolate

    Creatine: Controlled Labs Green Mag

    Multi/Antioxidant/Fish oil/health:
    Mega men multi
    Vigor/Vitaberry plus
    Now Super EPA
    Now Ginger root
    Now Veggie Carotenoids


    Lactic Acid buffering/endurance:
    High Voltage Body Octane

    USP labs anabolic-pump
    USP labs Super Cissus RX

    Supplements used on Workout day:
    BCAA: Excell

    I eat/supplement based off my skin... I do my best to keep my skin as clear as I possibly can, hence the long list of supplements...

    Diet: To be posted on workout days:

    Veggie Intake? I consume 2-4 green smoothies a day...

    Spinach/carrots/celery/OJ/Water

    I'm still experimenting with smoothies, and will incorporate a larger level of them in my diet, but it does, however, become expensive to continually keep buying them, especially since I live in Alaska...

    The workout: May change rep scheme... And excerises:

    Day 1
    A) Clean 6x4
    B) Deadlift 2-3x8
    C) DB Bench 4x6

    E) Hanging Leg Raise 3xWhatever

    Day 2
    A) Push Press 6x3
    B1) Chins 3x6 (weighted)
    B2) Dips 3x8
    C) Lat Pull-Down 3x12-15

    Day 3 Off

    Day 4
    A) Overhead Squat 3x8 or pyramid
    B1) Incline DB Bench 3x12-15
    B2) Row 5x10
    C) Lateral Raise 3x8-15

    Day 5
    A) Clean grip power snatch 3x8
    B) Pull-Ups for 30 total reps
    C) Bulgarian Split Squats 3x8-12
    D) Curls 5x5, 3x8 or 3x15


    Anabolic-Pump


    Anabolic Pump™ is the first known Compound (OTC or Prescription) to:

    * Super saturate (literally force feeds) muscle cells with glucose and amino acids
    * Block glucose uptake in fat cells
    * Potentiate the positive effects of insulin on muscle cells
    * Block triglyceride uptake in fat cells
    * Stimulate lipolysis
    * Improve lipid profile



    First update to come: Sunday evening!

    I've been using the beta powder since november, but haven't had a chance to workout consistently due to school... But things have changed...

    Anyways, I'm not really sure if I want to do this, but here are some pics...

    We all have to start off somewhere...

    I don't really care too much for posing since I'm a pitcher...

    Thank you Mulletsoldier! I'll do my best to continually update this!



    Supplementation prior to Workout:
    1 serving Green Mag
    2 servings excell/1 serving Body Octane sipped on during/post workout...

    Workout

    Power Clean: 2x65x6, 4x85x4
    DB Bench: 2x40x6, 2x45x6
    Front Squat: No Squat rack at home,
    Leg Raises:3x15

    Aggression:
    I felt tired going into todays workout, but then I looked in the mirror, and felt angry...

    Strength
    Hard to tell at the moment due to the fact today was the first time I've ever done power cleans: Main focus was on form... DB Bench: I'll hit 60 in 2-3 weeks!

    Recovery:
    I felt pretty good between sets, but it's the first time I've worked out in awhile.

    Energy:
    Felt a little fatigued going into the workout, and during parts of it, but this where the mental game comes in... Although, I will admit, endurance felt pretty good, and towards the end, I just wanted to keep going!!!

    Overall:
    6.5, much to improve upon: I look forward to continuing to get my form down on power cleans... I am, in no way going to rush my self through this exercise due to the fact that I could potentially injure myself. But my goal is to hit 135 in about 2 months, which I should be able to do.

    Good base to work with nice and lean now just concentrate on getting down all those muscle building calories and lifting progressively heavier and heavier weights.

    Good luck man, make sure you have a balanced training approach if you are going to keep pitching at the next level. I spent a few years coaching on the college level and saw tons of pitchers with muscle imbalances from too much benching/squatting and not enough back/deadlift stuff. Bodyweight things like dips, pullups and pushups are underrated. BTW, I'd give about 100 grand to be 17 years old again and have your base to build on. Good luck and try to be patient, I know at 17 it isn't easy!

    Hey, I'm getting prepped up for my workout, and just incase I end up falling asleep before I get back on to the computer, I figured I'll post this up for now, and edit the workout section when I'm done. Anyways, hope everyone's day went well, and whooh, did not expect the bcs game to go how it did...

    Supplements prior to Day 2 workout:
    1 serving Green Mag
    1 serving Body Octane/2 servings Excell sipped on during/post


    Day 2 Workout:
    Shoulder Press:2x65x4, 3x75x3, 1x65x5
    Pullups: BWx8
    Weighted Hammer Chins:BW+10x2, BW+35x8, BW+25x6, BW+25x4, BWx2
    Dips:2x8, 1x10, Full Contraction...

    Aggression:Watched part of Flight 93 to realize what I have, what I take for granted, and why I want to make it in baseball... This is what motivated me to go workout today, even though it's pretty late at the moment, and I have to go o school in about 5 hours...lol

    Strength: Hard to tell at the moment, but hammer chins went okay, and I should improve on shoulder presses. I'll be adding weights to my dips in a week or two.

    Recovery: Felt pretty good between sets, and I'm noticing my rotator cuff seems to be feeling pretty good at the moment...

    Overall: Awesome pumps today: Arms were rock solid, and so was upper back! Endurance levels were up there, and I had plenty of energy going into the workout!

    School started today, but due to the fact that I didn't go to bed until after 5 A.M. this morning-I was determined to make sure I did a workout last night, instead of falling asleep, and even more determined to make sure I cooked a postworkout meal, and eat it! My mom allowed me to stay home since I rarely miss school...

    Well, since I'm talking about my mom at the moment, she went to sams today, and bought a huge bag of strawberries, carrots, spinach, a mixed bag of berries, and Boneless Chicken breast!

    Definitely got the base going right. Stay motivated and you'll get to where you want to be. The BCS game was a shocker to me to.

    Hey, just wanted to say thanks everyone, and I'll do my best to continually update!

    Yeah, I was really surprised with the outcome of the game... I didn't expect it to be a blow out!!! Either way, I think this game proves that college football needs a playoff system!

    Anabolic-Pump as an Appetite Stimulator!

    Possibly...

    As you all know, I was previously using the beta powder prior to recieving a bottle of Anabolic-pump,and one thing I took close notice to today was how I respond to simple carbs... Now, in the past, I've noticed a little lethargy, but today was an even more pecuilar, so now I've decided to perform a little experiement...

    Can AP, with the right carb manipulation increase appetite?

    Time will tell... But I think so...

    After meal 3, I didn't have much of an apptite surprisingly, so I decided to have smoothie... A fruit/carrot smoothie at that... After I drank this, I noticed my self going into a state of starvation, atleast, that's what it felt like, and so I decided to have a shake after that going into my workout!

    But the shake did not fill me up! I needed more food, or calories, but seeing what time it was, I decided to instead focus my attention on atleast getting the workout done!

    Key word: Hypo...

    Cliff notes: Carb manipulation may induce a greater need for the consumption of Complex Carbs, there by, possibly increasing appetite due to the quick shuttle of simple carbs... I'm going to play around with aspect...

    Basically, I'm going to see if by having simple carbs after a large meal induces a greater need for more food...

    The amazing thing about Anabolic-Pump is that one can increase there carb intake, and still lose fat, but what I'm going to experiment with is consuming a fruit smoothie after a large, and satisfying meal to see if I still go Hypo...

    Anyways, ttyl...

    Yeah, I'm thinking of just sticking with breakfast, after school, postworkout...

    5 A.M.

    And then another dosage around 3:15 P.M.

    Followed by one more dosage postworkout...

    Or depending on whether or not change up my schedule:

    5 A.M.
    12:15 P.M.
    Postworkout

    But if I don't workout till about 8 P.M.

    I'll probably add a dose around 5:15 P.M.

    I've toyed around with 4-5 doses in a day, although, I felt a little lethargic with 5 servings, but with 4, I felt great...

    This week, I'll probably experiment with different times on dosing to get the best benefit out of the product (3 servings).

    From what I've read, the half life is around 6 hours, I believe, and I kind of have a weird schedule in respect to when I wake up, and when I workout...

    Update on workout to come, it's about 2:30 a.m. at the moment-I fell asleep for about 5 hours after school, hence why I'm training in the midst of the night, or early morning. I should be heading to the gym in about an hour-hour an half, anyways, here's how things look thus far...

    Supplements prior to Day 2 workout:
    1 serving Green Mag
    1 serving Body Octane/2 servings Excell sipped on during/post


    Day 3 Workout:
    Overhead Squats:
    DB Incline Bench:
    Seating Rows:
    Lateral Raises:

    Aggression:

    Strength:

    Recovery:

    Overall:



    Diet:


    Supplements Prior meal 1:
    1 Super Cissus
    1 Anabolic-Pump


    Meal:
    Lactaid milk
    1 3/4 Cup oats
    1 scoop Dutch Chocolate
    4 Fish oil
    1 multi
    1 Vigor
    1 carotenoid


    Smoothie:
    4 StrawBerries/1-1 1/4 cup berries/water/1 ice cube/a little Orange Juice


    Supplements Prior meal 2:
    1 Super Cissus
    1 Anabolic-Pump


    Meal:
    4 slices of Cinnamon Toast
    Lactaid milk/1 Scoop Gf Pro Cherry/3/4 cup oats
    4 Fish oil


    Carrot Juice:
    3 Carrots/Water/A little bit of Orange juice

    Supplements Prior meal 3:
    1 Super Cissus


    Meal:
    1/2 cup cinnamon oatmeal
    Lactaid Milk
    1 scoop gf pro/ about 3/4 oats




    Notes: Hasn't been the greatest day... Woke up late for school, so I ended up rushing out the door without eating breakfast-I managed to put some excell in a bottle, and sipped on 4 servings at school... But prior to school, even though I didn't officially eat breakfast, I had some food earlier in the morning which kept me fueled... Anyways, as long as I get through with the workout, things should be okay-I'll probably just go to sleep when I get home from school, and update on my next workout Friday, or saturday...

    Well, since I missed my day 3 workout, I sort of combined my last 2 workouts of the week into one workout! First time ever doing Snatches! Will Add my closing notes to this later... And update diet, until then, ttyl...

    Supplements prior to Day 2 workout:
    1 serving Green Mag
    1 serving Body Octane/2 servings Excell sipped on during/post


    Day 3+4 Workout:
    One arm DB Snatches: 3x45x4, 1x40x4
    DB Incline Bench:1x25x12, 2x25x10
    Deep Back Squats: 3x135x8
    CG Pullups: bwx8, bw+25x6, bw+25x4, bwx6, bwx4
    Standing DB Lunge: 1x25x10, Walking DBLunge:1x25x20 steps, Standing DB Lunge: 1x35x6
    Seating Rows:3x60x10

    Aggression: Listened to Till I Collapse before I left, and read some inspirational quotes: Mental Focus:10

    Strength: I had a pretty good day today in regards to strength, but there's always room for improvement, and I especially look forward to the coming weeks!!! I will own Snatches! And Back Squats should go up fairly easily! I didn't know how to do bulgarian squats, so I did back squats... But they went alright, I made sure to go very deep...

    Recovery: Felt great between sets, but I was winded through parts of the workout, especially as I was doing snatches-whooh, took a lot out of me!

    Overall: Insane leg pumps while doing One arm DB snatches, and I wasn't planning on adding weights to my CG Pullups, but bw felt easy for me, so I said, what the heck, why not, lol... Other then that, it took a little over an hour to complete the workout, and energy levels were pretty awesome to say the least!!! I just wanted to keep doing more and more! lol... About 8.5 for today...

    Could I ask why you do this:

    Day 1
    A) Clean 6x4
    B) Deadlift 2-3x8
    D) Front Squat 5x3

    And also a leg excercise on days 4+5? The three excercises on day one are a bit redundant, IMO, as are the excercises on the other two days. The clean, DL, and squat are pretty much variations on the same excercise.

    I would do two of those excercises once a week each; DL on day one, squat on day 4 or 5 (which you could follow by cleans if you really felt the need). But DL is very hard on the CNS, and if you're lifting heavy, you'll want to cut it down to 2-3 times a month.

    Just my humble opinion. Good luck with acheiving your goals!

    Ahh, yes! I agree, that's why I'm thinking of just sticking with power cleans on day 1! I'm brand new to this exercise, so I wasn't sure what to expect since I would be using lighter weights at first, but like snatches, they're pretty tiring, and I've come to appreciate the exercise for what it is, and what benefits I may recieve from doing it!

    I'm still not sure about doing over head squats the day before snatches... But they should help with balance, and from my understanding, the exercise becomes a battle from within to maintain form which may benefit myself from a mental stand point.

    But yes, if you've done powerlifting before, or have incorporated any of these exercises into one of your routines, feel free to give me any pointers-I'm brand new to this style of lifting, and would appreciate any help!

    Also, in the past when I've done a three day split, I would perform the squat/deadlift on seperate days...

    Deads on Back/bi day, and Squats on leg day... Although, I would do front squats on Back/bi day also.

    I deadlifted 2-3 times a month, and if I deadlifted heavy one week, and performed the deadlift again the next week, I used lighter weights...

    You got the idea, I think.

    I started DL'ing mid last year. As I had herniated a disc the year before, and my lower back and hams were weak from disuse, I started with 4 x 10 x 135, and it tore me up (hamstrings), but felt good. I even did it twice a week for a while, and as it was light and high rep, it wasn't an issue.

    I worked my way up to 5 x 10 x 185 in a couple months, and that was tough. I hit a plateau. So I talked with a powerlifting buddy of mine, cut my reps down to sets of 5 for a couple weeks (which quickly took me to 225 while still DL'ing twice a week), then down to singles, and once a week. That took me to 265 or so, but I started to feel overtrained (keep in mind I wasn't doing any other leg excercises, no squat, leg press, etc).

    So now I do it on a rotating schedual: Fri, then a week and a half later on Wed, the a week and a half later Fri, etc. As my back and hams caught up to my quad strength, and surpassed it, I added in squats recently, on the workout day following DL. So if I DL on Fri, I'll squat on Mon, then DL the Wed the week after that and squat Fri two days later. Sounds complicated, but it's easy. I also added light stiff legged DL after squats. Very light.


    Reps wise a workout looks like this:

    10 x bar
    10 x 95
    5 x 135
    2 x 185
    1 x 225
    1 x 275
    1 x 305
    1 x 335


    I also use 35lb plates sometimes to break through plateaus, it's really hard, and really effective, as you have to pull from 1.5 in deeper.

    That's my input. If you're really new to DL, I think it's OK to 'overtrain' a bit, as you're likely lifting lighter than you really are capable of, but once you hit heavy singles...beware.

    My sole goal is to DL 405 at under 200lbs bodyweight, and I'm sticking to it. I love DL. Your milage may vary.

    This is in no way shape or form meant to influence your log. Keep it real, We all know supplements help, but there is a bigger puzzle in our quest.

    Anabolic-Pump notes:

    Pumps: I notice nice, dry pumps as I eat during the day, but note, this does not always occur... Sometimes, I recieve no pumps at all, and other times, I have a pro-longed pumped feeling throughout the day...

    I also notice that my bowels are more flucatuated with its use, but this does not always occur.

    When taken with simple carbs, I tend to go hypo-in the process, I feel like a ravaged beast searching the jungle for its nearest prey, but in my case, searching for complex carbs... Usually I'll then eat a couple slices of toast, or 1/2 cup of oatmeal...

    I do feel lethargic at times while taking this product, but it only seems to happen when I don't eat enough complex carbs-in that case, I then consume more complex carbs to satisfy my
    hunger...

    When I first began taking the beta powder, I noticed I used to sweat quite a bit at night... From reading notes from others, I learned they, too, dealt with a similar problem due to the potency of the product. I no longer sweat as profusely at night, and most of the time, not at all.

    Pumps in the Gym: Wow! ... Wow! ... Dare I say, 'WOW!' one more time... Okay, wow! My pumps are much more profound when I workout now, and they last longer-I'm comparing this to when I took a NO booster in the past: CL Whiteblood!

    Literally, now note, I'm not dramatizating, I had to stop one of my workouts due to the fact that I could barely move my arms-My entire upper body swelled up! Crazy-that's the most profound pump I've recieved when utilizing this product with my workouts...

    Anyways, that's about it for now... ttyl, I'll update on super cissus next week since I started taking it January 5.

    Jacob, I again would like to say thank you for the generosity you've expressed towards me... This is the probably one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me, and for that, again, I say thank you! Anyways, I'm still waiting to hear back from jon regarding a routine-he sent me a book last night that he wrote with John Davies, and whooh... I immediently dove into it, and read all 105 pages! Absolutely awesome book, and I highly recommend it for any baseball players looking to elevate there game! It's called, Diamonds...

    But seeing how today is tuesday, and I've had two days to recover, I'm going to still workout.

    Notices: I'm dealing with some doms in my legs, but with a good warm up, I should be good to go! Once I finish the workout, and get back home, I'll edit the workout section...



    Supplements Prior:
    1 Serving Green Mag
    1 Serving Body Octane/1 serving Excell sipped on during/post

    Day 1 Workout:

    Power Clean: 3x95x10
    Push Press: 1x75x5, 1x85x4, 1x75x4
    Jump Squat: 3x5


    Aggression: I was completely focused for this workout! The last few days have really put things in perspective for me, and I plan on tearing it up in the gym as I get more accustomed to these new lifts!

    Strength: Well, I went up in weight for push presses, and power cleans went pretty well. I maintained consistent form even though I did higher reps then I what had originally planned!

    Recovery: My legs were burning after my first set of power cleans, but I managed to get through two more sets! Endurance was pretty good, and I especially look forward to doing this lift again very soon!

    Overall: I ran into a football coach from one the High School's around anchorage, and had him check my form on power cleans. After conversing with him for a bit, and doing cleans with just the bar, I ended up doing 3 sets with 95 lbs x 10, and wow! My legs were burning! It was a lot of fun though-I now have pretty solid form on this exercise, and I look forward to doing them again pretty soon! Push presses went pretty well-I managed to go heavier this week then last week which is pretty cool to say the least, and I maintained form. I attempted behind the neck snatch presses, but had quite a few problems-I just couldn't get the bar up... The exercise felt really uncomfortable, but I'm still going to try these out again. Maybe it was just because my shoulders were already tired, but other then that, the workout went pretty good. I'm happy about how the power cleans went, and I should be putting up bw for these pretty soon!

    Notes:

    I'm experiencing doms at the moment in my legs, but I had a pretty solid warm up today, and managed to still go through with my workout...

    During meal 1, I literally could not fill myself up! After having about 1 1/4 cups of oatmeal with 4 slices of toast, I still felt incredibly hungry, hence why I added about 3/4 cups of oats to a shake! All in all, today went by pretty well, although, I did notice I ended up sweating in my sleep last night. Kind of ironic how I had written about AP causing me to originally sweat in my sleep, and ended up sweating last night, lol... But I still ended up sleeping well, and had another vivid, senstational dream. I'll be working out again tomorrow, so look for an update tomorrow night, ttyl.

    This is what I'm planning on doing tomorrow: Although, I'll probably make some changes to it...

    One arm DB Snatch 4 x 6
    Overhead Squats 4 x 6
    Squats 3 x 10
    Hyperextensions 3 x 12
