I was really tired waking up this morning. I sucked it up during cardio and added an extra 5 minutes to my HIIT. Man, what a difference. I leave the gym soaked in sweat. I see others around me who have been there twice as long with not even half as much sweat.
My buddy got a box full of junk food today, so all of us have been chomping that stuff down. There goes my cardio for the day, but I was on a sugar high and got a great arm workout. Great solid pumps. I used fairly light weight, but very strick form and flexed my arms throughout the repetitions and got a great burn. I felt very solid.
So here goes my summary for the week...(keep in mind this last week has been on 3 caps of JW per day, which is one less than the previous weeks)
WEEK FIVE SUMMARY
Strength: Once again, my strength has continued to increase. I noticed the strength improvement for both my back and arms; however, my chest and shoulders weren't as strong (could have been bad days).
Pumps and Vascularity: Pumps have been the same this week, nothing has changed. Feel very solid between sets.
Size: I still haven't gained anymore weight. I have been eating roughly the same amount of food and watch my carb intake. Gaining weight is not my concern. I am looking for overall body composition. I am sure I could gain more easily if I let my appetite take over.
Energy: I still feel slugish. I haven't slept as solid this week either. I have always had energy issues though way before taking this stack, but my fatigue seems to have increased.
Appetite: Hunger is still the same. I am not craving food, but I have no problem eating.
Libido: Sex drive has dropped down a bit toward the end of the week
Overall: Considering I have dropped from 4 caps/day of JW to 3 caps/day, I feel no significant decrease in any of the positive effects. My skin is less oily and my libido dropped a bit. Still the same hardness and great pumps! 3 caps seems to be just fine, but it could be that the I added is making up for it. I will give it an 8/10 this week.
