Applied Nutriceuticals: IGF-2 & NeoVar Log
Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is John, I'm a 20 year old college student who has been weightlifting seriously for approximately 3 years now. I'm currently testing 2 products from Applied Nutriceuticals: IGF-2 and NeoVar. I'm hoping that I can add some intelligent and useful information to the already knowledgable forum members.
Max Bench: 225x2
Max Squat 275
I am currently stacking two Applied Nutriceuticals products: IGF-2 & NeoVar.
IGF-2 (please visit Applied's website for technical info)
*Only IGF-2™ “Immediate Growth Factor” ™ provides the mechanisms to trigger exponential increases in BOTH SERUM TESTOSTERONE AND HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE LEVELS! Better yet, the effects of this ground-breaking formulation can be felt just days after starting. Even hardcore bodybuilders with years of experience with steroids and growth hormone (HGH) rave about this formulation, reporting that it keeps them from “crashing” during off cycles, allowing for continuous, compound muscle growth! Every component of this revolutionary formula either directly or indirectly promotes testosterone and / or HGH production, while also triggering powerful fat-burning mechanisms. The result? Everything you want: Massive increases in muscle size, strength, leanness and density!
NeoVar (again visit Applied's website for technical stuff)
*NeoVar™ provides creatine in an enhanced biochemical form, resulting in dramatically increased bioavailability and absorption. Instead of saturating your system in creatine and hoping for the best, NeoVar directly penetrates the muscle cell, resulting in far more functional creatine within the cell where you need it. This means no more loading, bloating, cramping or dehydration. This is made possible via the modification of the creatine monohydrate molecule by attaching an ester (fatty acid chain). The result is Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE). CEE can permeate the cell wall far more efficiently than creatine monohydrate, and therefore the positive effects on cellular size and function are exponentially increased.
I just started this stack Monday and am hoping to see great results in both size and strength.
Monday-Chest & Tris
Tuesday-Back & Bis & Abs
Thursday-Chest & Tris & Abs
Friday-Shoulders & Bis
I try to keep my diet very high in protein and eat 5-7 meals per day in order to promote muscle gain.
Today was a really good day in the gym. I felt more energized than usual and am attributing that to the IGF-2. I definately got a good workout in and feel like I got a great pump. Just trying to keep up with drinking alot of water with the NeoVar. I'm keeping track of alot of initial stats right now, that way it will be easier to track my results as the weeks go by with this stack.
Overall, for the beginning of the first week I'm very excited and optomistic about this stack. Check in for more updates!

Best Chest Workout
I had the absolute best chest day of my life today! This stuff is really legit, even my training partner was amazed by the weight i was putting up today. We did dumbbells first and I hit 95's for 6 reps, which is the most i've ever done...and on the decline trotter I hit the pin at 17 and got 3 solid reps on my last set... I'm so pumped about this product... I had an amazing amount of energy going into the gym, and the energy didnt stop the whole way through my workout...it was really something...
I also hit tris today, got a great workout and was really pushing myself to the max... as of today i've hit more weight one very chest and tri excercise than i've ever done before...i got more reps doing dips and just felt in an all around better mode while i was in the gym...
Trust me guys, this product is hands-down the best supplement i've ever taken!
Thanks for the subscriptions guys, i'm doing my best with the logs, but i really can't say enough about the product.
p.s. don, dirk has my before pictures, i emailed them to him at the applied email account! thanks for checking in, and i am very much looking forward to any product promos in the future, please keep me in mind!

Molotov, the results have been phenomenal!! Over an 8 week period, users have been seeing solid lbm gains of 4-8 lbs., and users doing recomp have reported even better gains that that!!
no pct will be required for the IGF-2/NeoVar stack, and side effects have been minimal- the only side reported was slightly drier joints from a couple people (out of hundreds), and these went away on a reduced dosage- the stack has a marked anti-catabolic effect, and this can dry you out a little from drastically lowered cortisol levels.

Got in the gym a bit this weekend, just hit cardio and bi's on Saturday to mix it up a bit. Pretty good workout, gym was empty on a Saturday morning, which is nice, that way its easier to get on the equip without having to wait. Got a real good lift in and got a great pump. Also started hitting a bit of cardio on the elliptical because I'd like to shred a little bit of bodyfat before summer starts, but I'm working harder to gain some serious mass before summer so we'll see.
Today was our first chest day of the week (also hit chest on thursday, but different types of excercises, alot of cables and pec dec and more definition stuff). Started off with bench, was happy with where I was at. 205 x 6 and then 225 x 3 flat bench. Then moved on to decline dumbbells, the excercise went well, its just a pain in the ass because we're not allowed to drop the dumbbells at college, so it makes the last rep that much harder. Then we did some incline flys to loosen things up a bit, stretch out the muscles. We then moved on to keg bench, we have these kegs at our gym that are filled with water and weigh from 75lbs to 150lbs, and did 5 sets of bench with the keg. I really like doing these because they're not only good for chest, but having to stabalize them really works awesome for the rest of your body.
So far, these supplements have been amazing. I see an increase in energy, as well as pumps. I havnt had any negative side effects, but I am noticing that I dream more often, or at least remember my dreams more often, i'm not sure which. But regardless, I remember my dreams every night now, which i didnt before, but this may be due to the fact that I feel like I'm getting better sleep at night...
Gettin ready now to head into the gym to hit tris...
Well, THANKS to all of you for subscribing so far, and THANKS to Applied for such a great product. Keep checking in for more updates! Definately a product that lives up to the hype.

Alright guys, its been a great week in the gym. My energy has been up...stamina has been up...and general mood in the gym has skyrocketed.
Hit legs and cardio yesterday, which was nice...gave my upper body a much needed break. Noticed a general increase in my energy while i was doing cardio, I normally tire out relatively quickly, but got a good amount of time in so I was really pleased with the results.
But today was right back at upperbody! Chest and tris again, hit them both hard. Did alot of cablework today for chest and i'm continually moving the pin down the stack! I felt an amazing pump through my workout and I just felt like I could be in the gym all night. It was amazing, i've never had so much energy...
Got a really good tri workout, which was nice, b/c since I work tris twice a week I can compeltely switch up the excercises (except I always do dips). I even increased the weight on reverse grip bench, so that was an awesome surprise. I've been getting more dips in as well, so i'm going to have to move to weighted dips to try to get more out of it.
So far with this supplement I've been very satisfied. Increases in every aspect of my lifting routein, as well as feeling better in the gym, and better overall. I feel like I'm sleeping better and wake up more refreshed.
Thanks for the subscriptions guys, keep checkin in for updates!

Alright, just got back from doing legs and abs. Started off the workout today with 20 min. on the elliptical to loosen up and also burn a few extra calories. Upped my weight on all of my machine leg excercises, at least 1 notch up the pin. Also, upped the weight on deadlifts today and did a few extra sets of calf raises. All in all a very motivated leg day.
Also did some abs today, crunches, side crunches, weighted crunches. Trying to do alot of different ab excercises to get ready for summertime.
Its amazing how time flies while i'm in the gym now, I dont even notice how much time is passing while i'm in there because I am so pumped about the weight and transforming my body now on these supplements.
I needed the lower body day though, because I blasted upper body monday and tuesday. Still trying to keep the weight moving up, so i'm pushing really hard to consistantly up the weight in all excercises. And so far i've been able to do that. Noticing some new stretch marks under the arms, fresh red! (i know its bad, but it makes me feel good, like showing that i'm getting great results).

Shoulder day today... hit shoulders hard for the first time this week. Got a good workout in, barbell pressing 135 x 10 for 3 sets so i was pretty pleased with that. Then did some shrugs with 90lb dumbbells, then 225 on the barbell. Overall, had alot more strength than i've had, even with doing chest yesterday, which takes away a little bit cause of the soreness.
Also hit some abs today, did alot of twists with the medicine ball and about 100 crunches.
I have been getting amazing sleep the last few weeks while taking these supplements, I feel much more refreshed when I wake up and just overall more energy throughout the day. Motivation is still way up and I'm still seeing significant jumps in strength. The biggest thing for me though is the quality of sleep, I'm not sure why exactly i'm sleeping better, but I definately have been since starting this stack. I'm feeling like my muscles are recovering faster and I'm ready to hit the gym hard every day.
Have a good weekend!

02-28-2007, 10:29 PM
Been feeling really good this week in the gym...its a stat week so i've really been pushing hard looking forward to thursday and friday to see if the weights have improved... my stamina has been up in the gym and my recovery time has drastically decreased... i've been sleeping better and am not as sore as use to be.
Will keep you updated, as i wrap up week 4 on this stack. Hopefully tomorrow we'll see a continual increase with the stats!
