Kixazz's Aethletic Edge IntaXcell/Steel Edge log
04-13-2007 06:52 PM
Took the day off today. But i felt great all day long. My body still feels really tight fromt this week which is a great feeling. Also i surprisingly have not been feeling as sore as i would have expected.
04-13-2007 07:01 PM
Today was Leg's and Bi's.
No steel edge today just IntraXcell. I had a nice lift today nothing great but my leg day is different from most. I had microfracture surgery on my ankle almost exactly a year ago and am still recovering. I really cannot squat heavy nor can I do many leg lifts heavy. Plus due to atrophy while i was on crutches my left leg is about 3/4 the size of my right(i never got the chance to fully rehab due to football).
So my leg day is more of a rehab workout than a heavy workout, just trying to get it back without pushing my ankle too much. It sucks, i know.
However, my Bi's felt great and by the 3rd set i had a nice pump going that lasted the remainder of the workout and is still going now(again not the stringest ive ever felt but def. feels nice).
For the weekend its looking like saturday will just be some cardio and sunday i may do back again. I will report back sunday!
So far so good! hopefully next week well start seeing some nice jumps once again!!

How much vascularity have you noticed? I have not been in the gym for 4 days now due to being sick from the dramatic weather changes . I have still been taking intraXcell 2x a day and Im getting good pumps at work moving heavy stuff around and my veins are becoming more noticeable! This sux I hate being sick, I want to be in the gym but I know it will make me worse!!!
04-14-2007 08:32 AM
I have actually noticed a nice increase in vascularity....more than the pumps. From the first day you could just see that i was alot more vascular than i was when not on it.

Just curious....have you ever taken any NO products before?
04-14-2007 10:57 AM
Not yet, Never tried them and whats funny is I went to NP to get a NO product and darren was really wanting me to try out Steele Edge so after talking about what I was trying to accomplish this fit more of the bill then anything else! Also Happy that I read this post and an grabbed the IntraXcell too as they had just got it in stock! I cant wait to get back in the gym and hit it hard as hell to see my veins grow!

Day 8: Chest and Tri's
Today's workout was awesome.....probably the best i've had so far with the stack. The pump today was great and lasted the whole workout and beyond....felt it really well in my arms.
All my lifts went up.....i benched without warming up but still managed to do pretty well(went heavier this week but less reps).
I definately feel bigger right now and can see it in the mirror. I will try to get pics im struggling to get a camera.
My weight today pre workout was 184 and post was 186. So my weight seems to be coming back quicker than my strength(which i hope at the end of this will at least be somewhat close to what ive done before), but i am very happy to see it go up week to week. I also think that my weight is all good weight...im eating as good as i can right now....2 cans of tuna everyday for lunch on wraps....chicken breasts and some form of rice/pasta for dinner....rice cakes with peanut butter throughout the day....eggs for bfast....i usually eat like crap(and really dont gain any fat at all) so im encourgaed by teh fact that ive been keeping to a pretty decent diet and would like to see how much it helps........im also going to try to make it better by spreading meals out but thats still a work in progress as im still adjust to working 9-5....

Day 9: Back and Bi's
First of all, the pump in my lower back by the end of this workout was incredible. My lower back was hurting on the ride home, but i enjoyed it
I didn't feel a crazy pump in my bi's but i did little of them and just killed my back today.
The concentration that i feel when i lift is awesome. Its not like crazy jump around energy but i just want to get under the weights and lift. And once im done i just want to go again. I definately like that aspect of this product, and it seems like after reading the summaries of everyone else's logs this has been a recurring theme.

I felt great lifting today...stronger and just wanted to keep doing more. I ended up Super-setting alot of things today as well as cybex benched again.
The pump in my back lasted a good hour, hour and a half after the lift.
More than anything right now my concentration and my push when lifting are showing a great difference!

Day 10: rest
I was going to do shoulders today but decided to take the day off today to rest. I havent gone to sleep before 1130 this week and still adjusting to working 9-5, it is killing me. So i decided to take the day off and just do some abs pushups.
I will note today though: i feel big. My chest feels huge today. My back feels tight and my traps feel huge today. Its a great feeling.
Tomorrow is shoulders. And I am definately looking foward to it and seeing how well i can push myself.
Will report back tom.
Oh yea....again my weight yesterday was right around 185. Its good to see that goin up! and i feel like im Leaning out too which is really good(not puttin on any bad lbs).
04-19-2007 06:41 AM
Very solid back/bicep workout KA
I also noticed a "leaner," look when I started IntraXCell.....good thing you are too
Hope you got some quality rest!

Day 11: Shoulders
Again todays workout was awesome. All my weights went up.
I know that it says to take steel edge on an empty stomach but i always eat a little something. The first day as well as today i took it with a completely empty stomach(i was hungry and probably couldve ate a decent amount of food) and i REALLY feel this kick in. I feel like i have more energy when i take it on a completeley empty stomach like almost jittery. I actually like the feeling because i really want to get under the weights and just lift. And again, the thing that i really like is the concentration, i am really into it when i am lifting...much more than not taking it.
The pump today as felt really good...i felt it in my 3rd set of the day which was nice as i love the "pump" feeling
As for my workout:
12 10 8 6 4
DB Press 45(AP) 65 75 85 0

DB Shrugs 80 80 80
10 8 8
Cybex Row (back) 70 70 70
reverse flys 115 130x7 130x5
I really pushed myself today but unfortunately i think im still breaking off scar tissue from tearing my labrum and dislocating my shoulder in the fall. So thats not the most comefortable feeling but im fighting through it.
Im really impressed so far. You can really see me getting bigger and getting more definition in my arms
Im impressed enough that i just bought another bottle of IntraXcell I am really encouraged and after reading everyone's logs it just seems like the right thing to do to get the absolute most out of it. And if i can get the funds I will be purchasing another SteelEdge and a third bottle of Intraxcell! We shall see
Tomorrow is legs(rehab stuff) and i will be hitting my Bi's hard as i really dont do much during Back and Bi's day.

Life is good when things work out. The confidence goes up when the looks improve, and seems like you are lucky enough to benefit from more IXL and SE in the future than originally planned...this is the part where you just sit back and enjoy the PR's + physique improvements.

Yea...ive been trying to get back to where i was coming into camp for football in august since i had lost just about 15lbs and needless to say my strength was completely gone(and i was putting up very decent numbers for my size)
im almost half way to my goal weight of 190....hovering around 184-185 and i can tell you it is not bad weight(I really feel much leaner than i had)
My strength is definately not there but it is coming back in greater strides than i expected it too...and i am really finding myself able to push more and more without to much of a problem
I am definately liking this so far and I hope that my gains will only improve as the IXL starts to really kick in...
04-20-2007 06:36 AM
Nice job KA You will be VERY glad that you bought that second bottle of IntraXCell.
04-23-2007 08:08 PM
They certainly will, the second two weeks bring about a big jump in performance gains over the first two weeks.
