Shoulder/Back day today.
Felt really good this morning when i woke up. Definately not as sore as I was last week after my chest day, so the recovery was definately a plus. I felt like I got a great workout in today, mixing up alot of different shoulder and back excercises. Alternating between bodyweight excercises with pullups and then rows and dumbbells and cables, so it was all in all a good day. Went heavier than usual on shrugs and tried to bust out a few more pullups than I typically do because i want to make sure i'm hitting these muscles with the same intensity that i'm hitting chest with. I'm already feelig a bit tight so i'm hoping that it means i hit these muscles hard enough.
Yesterday was the chest-only day. I felt good thoughout that workout and really tried to go as heavy as possible. Although i think that by doing arms on monday, my tris are still a bit sore and that hampers my bench and I lose a rep because of it. But it might be a good thing as well, b/c now i am relying soley on chest for bench, instead of using tris too. It felt good working out and I was really happy today that I wasnt as sore as last week.
Overall, feeling pretty good, started running too cause the weather is finally becoming bearable, so will now be getting some outside cardio in. Which is much more enjoyable than running inside.

Had a pretty good day today. Went as heavy as possible on pretty much everything... doing low reps now and high weight, keeping the reps between 3-6 on flat bench and the same on dumbbell presses as well. Also hit inclines, and some decline presses, and to finish things off and stretch things out did some flies.
Trying to keep the weight up in order to pump more out... on flat bench i hit 205x 6... 210 x 5... and 225 x 4 to finish up... not a bad day...
Also did some runing today for a bit because the weather was so nice... i'm trying to do alot of cardio these days in order to cut up for summertime...
Yesterday did arms and felt realy good.. got a great pump... although i feel that doing tris the day before i do chest somewhat hinders my chest workout in terms of weight pressed...but i guess that it helps to isolate my chest a bit because i'm not using my tris to help as much with the weight...

Back and Shoulder Day
Was feeling really good today, although my chest is a bit sore... Started off the day with 50 pullups (took 4 sets so i was pretty pumped about that)... then i did some barbell shrugs 185x12.... switched things up and did some rows on the machine... then moved back and did some closegrip pulldowns... tried to mix it up pretty well today.. 4 excercises each for back and shoulders... keeping things effecient because my energy is high... and my recovery has been amazing, due to the supplements, vitamins, protein intake, and great sleep im' getting at night.. so everything is working at full speed right now...

Definately enjoyed the weekend, but since the weather is improving, that is all the more motivation to bust ass in the gym. Worked bis and tris really hard today. Did 3 sets of weighted dips, which i had never done before, I usually just do normal dips, but I figured that the additional weight would only help me out. They really gave me a great pump and it set my workout off on the right foot for sure. I then moved into alternating bis and tris for the rest of the workout and it seemed to really do the trick.
I'm also starting to do cardio every day outside, going for a run to drop some excess fat pounds. Although its going to be difficult to gain weight and lose fat at the same time, i'm working hard to try to find that balance where i can maintain everything and really tighten up.
Summer weather is here, and the fest and famine contest is well underway, so its time to really buckle down with these products and get maximum results.
Overall, very pleased with how i've been feeling both inside the gym and outside. I really get awesome pumps while i'm in, and soreness is at a minimum afterwards. My energy is up, sleeping is up, all in all I have no complaints.
Take care guys.

Shoulder and back day today...
Felt really good about it today, cause it only took me 4 sets to get to 50 pullups, so that was definately positive...
Also upped the weight on DB shrugs and barbell shrugs... slowly working my way up the rack, eyeing up those 125's, haha...
All in all, got a great lift in, i was really happy with the endurance, and since i am doing 2 large bodyparts i really need the extra stamina that i'm getting, so its been really good for me...
Yesterday I had an excellent chest day as well, did alot of sets to failure on the bench as heavy as i could go, so it worked out well, but i'm paying for it today as my chest is really sore...
Trying to eat really clean these days, cutting down on the bad calories while upping my good ones, trying to take in as much healthy food to my body as possible to get down to single digit bf%. So we'll see how that goes, because I'm definately not going to sacrafice size or strength...
One other thing about this supplement that I havent mentioned is "mood"... I know some people go through mood swings when taking supplements, but it hasnt affected me at all, i mean besides increased sex drive, however, thats not a bad thing... but mostly all it does for me psychologically is make me want to be in the gym lifting heavier and harder all the time, so its all good in that department..
Thanks for checking in guys. Have a Happy Easter...

Got alota rest over the holiday weekend and went right back to the gym this morning. Felt really refreshed because of the weekend of relaxing and eating, just alot of much needed R&R.
Chest day today, really felt like doing chest today so decided to switch up chest and arm days.
Been doing alot of bench pressing lately... Did 6 sets of low reps and high weight today. It felt good, did 3 sets of 225x4 and really feel like my strength is increasing. Then did some heavy dumbbells on incline. Finished up with cable crossovers just to loosen up a bit and stretch out. But overall felt really good.
Nearing the end of this stack and i'm trying to realy maximize what i've got left.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I appreciate the fact that you're still checkin in with my log.
Today was back and shoulder day. Since i'm nearing the end of my stack i'm pushin even harder than before (if that is possible) but i'm just increasing the weight to failure on everything, pushing the pins down the rack and just busting as many reps as I can. I'm not keeping any of my weights stable, even if i'm only adding 5 pounds, i'm still adding something. Started off with pullups today (3 sets of 12) and then moved on to shrugs (205lbs x 6reps x 3 sets)... then moved and did cables for back and shoulders. Moved on and did rows, shot the pin down to 15 on the machine, which i'd never done before. I'm really trying to push things to the limit, and I can really feel the soreness right now, but it will all be worth it. We'll see how the recovery goes when pushed to failure now.
Yesterday I did arms and felt like I got one of the best pumps in a long time. I added an extra excercise to both bis and tris at the end of the workout to make sure that I worked every single fiber that I've got. Today I paid for it a bit as my tris were a lil extra sore, but gotta train hard to get bigger, so it is well worth it.
Going to bust all of my PR's in the next 2 weeks and really end this thing on a positive note. Keep checkin in for the final roundup guys! Thanks for all the motivation.

Bro this is a great LOG!! With some awesome results!!
In the words of rick ross "PUSH IT" Yeah baby almost there!!
04-13-2007, 08:13 PM
Hey guys, thanks for the replies... just knowin that you guys are still checking in on me really means alot and really adds the extra boost i need in the gym. Buffhunk I appreciate the kind words sir.
Yesterday I did chest again and damn i got a great workout.
I did dumbbells and actually did the 100's and pumped them out 4 times, so i was really happy about that. I then moved onto the smith machine and put on 225 (even though its probably like 40 pounds lighter than what is actually on the bar) it was the first time i'd got that much weight, and i got it for 6 reps! then i finished up with some cable work to stretch out and really get a good pump in. but it was definately one of my best chest days I've had, because i totally shattered my PR for dumbbells and for incline, so that was absolutely awesome.
I did arms today and also got a great pump. I did weighted dips today and close grip bench. Really feeling good about everything right now, increased my curls by 5 pounds a piece and dropped another pin on the curl smith machine.
Again guys, I really appreciate everything! Have a great weekend.
04-13-2007, 08:22 PM
Yeah bro this is AWESOME!!!!
You are having great results!! Congrats on the weights increasing with no remorse! At this pace who knows what could happen!
Also how is your recovery? Are you experiencing much DOMS?
Keep it up buddy!!
04-13-2007, 08:33 PM
Yeah man, the weight increases are amazing.
As for my recovery, its the highest its ever been. I get mildly sore the next day, but after 1 day all soreness is gone and i'm ready to get back at it right away. No soreness lingers at all. And the soreness that I get is barely noticable. Just a little tightness the next day, the recovery is awesome!
04-13-2007, 08:55 PM
AWESOME TO HEAR!! this is a big PLUS!!!!
04-16-2007, 05:17 PM
UPDATE WE WANT UPDATES!!!!!
We know you have some good news to share with us!!
04-16-2007, 06:43 PM
Arm day today. Going all out from here on out, so after 4 sets of weighted dips we moved to closed grip on the smith machine. after a set of 185 and a set of 205, we threw on 225! I pumped it out for 5 reps!!! PR for me, I'd never done that before in my life, although it might be a little easier on the smith machine than on the flat bench, it was still an amazing feat for me and I felt great about it. Finished out tris with some pressdowns and kickbacks (which I supersetted with bis), but the big thing for me was the closed grip.
Bi's today went awesome too, after the supersets and preacher curls we moved over to the cables. I did the overhead curls with each pin on 7! Another PR for me. To finish up we got onto the seated preacher curl machine and put the pin as low as we could so that we could still get 5 reps then just held that last rep and let it down as slow as possible, got an amazing burn with it! After 2 sets of that I had one of the best pumps since I've been working out.
Thanks for the check in buffhunk! Going to slam chest tomorrow, so we'll see how that workout goes!
04-17-2007, 12:10 AM
Bro this has been amazing to see you progress like this! I am so proud of you!! I love to hear all these new Pr's you are hitting 225 CLOSE GRIP is a feat for anyone you have joined an elite class my friend!!
I can express how happy i am to hear how well things are going for you!! Awesome Awesome!!
Crush the chest!! and let us know how it goes!!

04-23-2007, 02:18 PM
Dude, awesome results. When I read your final results, I was immediately sceptical. I thought, well he must be a newbie or a veteran who's taken some time off. But according to your opening post your neither. I must give it up to Jlash and the AN crew. Those % increases are almost anabolic like. I'm currently on the same stack now and hope to see the results you did. Although I only have a 1 month supply of both.
04-23-2007, 02:22 PM
Yes Blu jlash has done an Exceptional JOB!!! And the Stats prove it!!
I am sure you will get the same effects from your stack as well!!!
Blu did you pick up some of the free samples of our new product RPM! The most innovative product to hit the Market in YEARS!!! If you need to Pm me and i will get D your info so he can send you out a sample!!
04-23-2007, 02:25 PM
04-23-2007, 02:40 PM

04-23-2007, 06:32 PM
Thanks guys, I appreciate it, and I'm glad that you were all paying attention to the log.
bluedevil, good luck man, you wont be dissappointed at all with this product. Let me know how it all goes!
