Best of luck, I had a great expereince with ALRI and evolution.
What's up. I am new to the site and I am challenging myself to post a thread based off of the. I see there are many forums already out there, but what is unique with mine is heavy steroid use in my past. I am trying to bodybuild as healthy and natural as possible, but still with a slight edge that won't compromise my health.
This stack is fully funded by myself, so I have no biased opinions. Additionally, I am already 9 days into my Stack, supplementing only with Jungle Warfare at this moment. I didnt start the forum earlier because of reading that it takes about three weeks to start noticing the effects.

It has been almost 4 years since I have touched the juice. I started at the young age of 18 and did it for 3 years.
I dont follow a specific workout schedule. I basically train what I feel is needed for that day, or what works out so that I can have a partner.
A typical Week...
Mon: Legs / Cardio
Wed: Chest / Cardio
Fri: Back / Cardio
Sun: Off...maybe Cardio
My Evo Cycle...
Weeks 1-6: JW (4 caps daily)
Weeks 3-5: BAM (2 caps)
Weeks 5-8: (3 caps daily)
Nutrition: I am deployed so all I get is what's served at chow hall, so I try to eat as healthy as possible.
My goal: Be 205 lbs at a lesser BF, possible 10% would be nice.
If anybody has any suggestions/training tips/nutrition tips, all is welcome. I am always open to sharing, learning, and trying new things.
Best of luck, I had a great expereince with ALRI and evolution.

Comments: I decided to hit the weights today instead of sitting around the fire station, so like I said my schedule is not set in stone, I play it day by day. This is the first time I ever did an all superset workout for my shoulders so I had to play with the weight. I can definetely tell that the pumps from the JW are kicking in. I am getting almost full upper body pumps. My strength has not yet increased, but I feel great in the gym. I do feel a bit more fatigued throughout the day. Also, my endurance and intensity during cardio the last couple mornings has been the best it has been over the past month in a half. My libido is starting to increase as well.
If there is anymore info you all are interested in, please ask and I will do my best to fill you in.

Lying Leg Curls: 3 triple drop sets (too tired and in pain to even remember the weight I was doing, but wasn't much)
Comments: I was in pain and tired as usual when doing this leg routine. Strength did not increase on leg presses, but I am up 20 lbs each set on squats. Appetite is increasing as well.
25 minutes Elliptical
Comments: Today cardio was once again very intense. One of the best cardio days I have had on this deployment. My endurance and intensity has definetely been increasing, which is good considering it is following an intense leg workout the previous day. Sense of well being has definetely been increasing as well. Half way through the day I felt fatigued, so I decided to not lift weights today.

I had to force myself to do cardio this morning, but got a good session in. My back feels sore from yesterday. Once again, I had to force myself to workout today, but once I did I had a great intense workout. The pumps were crazy and my strength really surprised me on both preacher curls and the dip machine.

Today I added BAM. I now take JW (4 caps daily) and BAM (2 caps daily). I was tempted to up the dose to 3 BAM daily and go for an extended 10 days, but I decided to stick with the suggested use on the bottle. I tend to be an extremist when it comes to buying supps. I want to rely more on my training and dieting habits.
I got a great pump and stretch during this workout today. I have been a bit burnt out the last few days, so I took it fairly easy, but got a great workout. I might be overtraining, but it is hard to stay away from the gym when I am taking these supps. I want to make sure I am maxing out my potential.
Great pumps today, strength was a bit higher than normal, libido is higher than normal, and I feel good throughout the day.
WEEK 2 SUMMARY:
Strength: Slightly starting to increase during isometric lifts, very gradual however.
Pumps and Vascularity: Pumps have definitely increased when lifting and I stay pumped and fuller throughout the day. I have crazy veins sticking out when lifting as well. I had a crowd around me at work staring at my veins when I was doing curls.
Size: Nothing noticeable, just seem fuller throughout the day. I have gained around 2 lbs so far. I now weight about 201 on empty stomach.
Energy: I have been feeling more energized throughout the day, less need to sleep, but I am not motivated to hit the weights. I maybe overtraining.
Appetite: I am one hungry mo fo. I cant stop munching on all the snacks peoples parents are sending to us here in the desert. I love them girlscout cookies, but we are all gonna leave here fat and happy.
Libido: Definitely has increased since I have started this stack. That is always a plus except for the fact that its is highly against the rules to ‘engage in a sexual act with the opposite sex’ while deployed.
Overall: I’d give it a 6.5/10 so far because I think its still fairly early for the full affects to be kicking in.
P.S. I don't get the chance to update this forum every single day, so I will do my best to respond to all comments at the end of the week.
P.S.S. For those who are interested, I will have pictures for sure at the end of my deployment when I get home. I dont have access to do everything over here.
Comments: I took off the last two days because I needed the rest and needed to travel and get away from this base. I have noticed a few sides starting to kick in. I am noticing an increase in oily skin and small pimples starting to form on arms and legs, but very very little. I don't mind slight sides like this, I actually prefer them because they are indicators that the stuff is working. I feel great otherwise.

It was nice taking the last two days off, but wow, what a difference it makes. I feel fat and like a slob today. It wasn't as hard hitting the weights today, but I wasn't exactly motivated. I did however get a great pump and burn. These superset routines I have been doing lately kick my ass, but I feel great from them. Nothing new noticeable today other than more vascularity in arms. Trying to adjust my diet to less carbs which consist mainly of complex carbs (wheat bread, oatmeal, and sweet potatoes when they are available).
P.S. Anybody have a hard time getting cut on this stack? From what I've read the JW manages estrogen levels very well, I cant see why I'd be retaining or gaining fat from high estrogen and I eat fairly clean. My cardio doesnt seem to be working for me....hmmm, any suggestions are welcome.
WHat does your cardio look like on the average? Thanks--
I also try to limit the amount and type of carbs I intake as it gets later in the day.
I have seen progress, but very very slow. Some days it seems like I just gained it all back.
Cross training on cardio seems to help me. 20 minutes on one machine followed by 20 on another with varying intensities. If my weight training + cardio will last more than 90 minutes total, I sip on Xtend with a moderate amount of gatorade. Otherwise I bonk (Blood suga fall off) during my necessary cardio time.
Thanks a lot for the advice. Besides the normal time and distance I have to maintain for the military, I am fairly new to cardio. Like most bodybuilders, I am not to enthused when it comes to cardio, but I feel great when its done. I normally do it first thing in the morning before work.
What exactly is HIIT? Or where could I find that info?
I will definetely start switching things up a bit more now. Maybe some elliptical and run. Keep it interesting.
I too would rather be fairly cut and have a moderate build than be huge with a gut. I cant afford to be big like that as a firefighter. I need to get my cardio up, it will make my job easier too.
Use the search function posted above, type in HIIT... Loads of threads on it. Cool theory.
