    Day 1:
    In the morning I popped 3 AMP, but not feeling any real stimulant feeling.

    Pre WO - Vasoxplode didn't seem to fresh. Had to really shake it up to make it powder form, plus it smells kind a funky, and doesn't seem to have the energy boost as NO Shotgun. Might add 1 Stimulant X to the mix for the next workout.

    Peri WO - Watermelon Extend & Poseidon nice and refreshing through out the workout

    Post WO - StarChem Evolution X10 + Poseidon and was refreshing

    Sets:4
    Reps:6 (8RM)
    Rest:60

    A1)Hang Cleans: 135x6, 140x6, 145x6(2)
    A2)Reverse Crunches on Slant Board: BWx6(4)

    B1)Standing Alt DB Shoulder Press: 45x6, 50x6, 55x6, 60x6
    B2)1-Arm Alt DB Row:70x6(3), 75x6

    C1)Bulgarian DB spilt squat:55x6, 55x6, 45x6, 45x6
    C2)Single Leg DB Deadlift:15x6(4)

    D1)Decline DB Press:85x6, 90x6, 100x6(2)
    D2)Standing DB External Rotation: 5x6, 10x6, 15x6, 20x6

    Hey man, love the idea! Great supplements.

    One suggestion you MIGHT wanna think about, I am not too fond of TOO much creatine while cutting, I would think maybe 4g or so split into maybe two doses throughout the day would be sufficient. For performance during your workout, if you feel that is lacking beta-alanine would be a great replacement. But creatine can give a bloated look when its dosed high enough, if your OK with that, then by all means, but I just don't prefer it during an all out cut for the beach , where I would think your goal is to get really shredded. Just a thought.

    Btw, VasoXplode has Mono in it, I def. wouldn't recommend that if you are going to use creatine.

    - Day 2 -

    HIIT
    Duration: 16 minutes
    Low Intensity (Walk/jog):90s
    High Intensity (Sprint):30s

    30 min. Pre HIIT
    3 scoops Extend + Poseidon

    15 min. Pre- HIIT
    1 Redline RTD

    Peri HIIT
    Music Mix down:
    Low Intensity: Metallica - "Unforgiven", Chris Daughtry - "So I lay Awake", and Papa Roach - "Forever"

    High Intesity: Demise of Eros - "Of Ages Past (Solaxative)"

    Post HIIT
    6 scoops Extend + Poseidon

    The last time I did any running was last summer when I finally started training again, after about a 4-6 years hiatus to training thanks to working fulltime and going to school fulltime. I actually think I over trained, because in the beginning I actually trained and went to work and school. But I was only able to do it for so long, before I couldn’t any more. Then after I graduated it took me about 2 years to get back at it, but I digress.

    Anywho, the last HIIT sessions I did really took its toll as well as I had a hard time maintaining the same High-Intensity (sprinting speed) for the duration of the workout.

    This time it was different. I was able to push hard through each High-Intensity interval and it felt that the time flew by, which was greatly due to the mental focus. This is pretty good for someone that generally gets winded walking up a flight of stairs. The most impressive part though, the following day I feel good. Even on a low carb diet.
    And for that I have to give Poseidon props. This is one supplement that has made a dramatic affect on my training as well as my mental state. At first I had a hard time believing Poseidon could have that great of an impact, but as days go on, the more of a believer I am…

    Thanks for the input. I will look at my creatine intake and taper it down towards the end of my cycle for the shredded look.

    As far as VasoXplode, I am not too sure how I feel about it yet...

    It is crazy how effective it is. I am starting not to be amazed anymore and just expect it. This morning I barely got out of bed, and was just moping around. I had my morning elixir (Extend + Poseidon) and I felt rejuvenated.

    lol!

    As far as HITT cardio, I agree, it can get addictive. I love the nature high I get off pushing myself as hard as possible...great endorphin rush!

    teh weekend


    day[6]
    Bad day. day[5].workout really did me in. Didn't want to get out of bed. Never mixed Poseidon and BCAA's, which made me feel like ish for the rest of the day. From now on, have my morning BCAA + Poseidon + Creatine mix in my cooler bedside. Only solid meals was sick of mixing shakes/drinks.

    day[7]
    much the same as day 6. Not to motivated to do anything, plus no Poseidon either. Stoopid me. Not sure how much catbolism took place this past weekend, because I was mentally dead and was not in the mood to take my supplements. Next weekend, this cannot happen again. I need to be better prepaired...

    Excellent detail xjsynx...I love that you keep including "stretching" at the end...SO important, and I don't think many people do enough.

    Updated Stats


    Scale Weight: 187 (Around 189 around the start of the diet, once carbs were cut and fat loss agents started along with anti-estrogen supps, water retention has dropped)
    Pre-diet Weight: 195

    Measurements have also gone down (ab & waist)

    Definition in traps, back, arms, pecs, and legs really starting to show, as well as four pack is starting to become more defined and I can visually see the love handles getting smaller. WIll take some progress pics to verify.

    // no rest
    E2)BB Curl 50X0:70x10, 70x8, 70x7

    Stretching

    The focus and drive is there. I am pretty suprised with the lack of carbs in my diet and on a restricted diet. Workouts have remained intense and get the heart rate pumping.

    Supplement Displacement


    I received my TNA, so for the time being I am replacing ActivaTe with it. It has been two weeks on the NHA stack, and no real signs of increased T. hoping the Trib and Avena will pump the T levels up.

    Next week I will also add my thyroid support
    Kelp 500mg x 3
    Selenium 200mcg x 3
    L-Tyrosine 1400mg x 3

    On the way Reset AD, Chaos, Yohimbine, and LiquiClen.

    Great update xjsynx. I follow a low carb schedule, followed by a highER carb one continuously year around. Since starting Poseidon, my lower carb days are an absolute breeze. Glad to hear it's working similarly for you.

    Day[12]


    Pre WO - 3 scoops Extend + 2 Scoops Poseidon + VasoXplode + 6g ALCAR + 1 cap TNA

    Peri WO - 6 scoops Extend + 1 Scoop Poseidon

    Post WO - Evolution + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 1 cap Lean Xtreme + 2 caps Vigor

    Circuits:3
    Durations:130s
    Rest:90

    A1)Deadlifts:65x55, 65x50, 65x40 // 145 total reps
    A2)Push-ups:95,90,100 // 285 total push-ups
    A3)Back Squats:65x55(2), 65x40 // 150 total reps
    A4)Lat Cable Pulldown:60x90, 50x100, 50x105 // 295 total reps

    Extremely challenging workout for me. I am use to drop sets, supersets, and giant sets, but 120-130 second duration sets was killer for me. Typically my reps ranges only reach 12+ towards the end of my workouts for isolation lifts. The 2 scoops of Poseidon made a difference, mentally and recovery wise. This time I actually had energy to walk out of the gym.

    Day[13]
    Had my Pose + BCCA waiting for me chilled when I awoke. Woke up with no problem. Able to enjoy a re-feed day. Forgot my AP at work, which would have complemented my re-feed day ideally.

    Anywho, pizza was on the menu, and after I ate it, I wish it wasn't. Only had a couple slices, but felt like crap after eating. I felt like a stuffed pig and got real sleepy.

    Didn't do any HIIT, but I did do a HIIT inspired heavy bag session.

    Day[14]
    No training day, so wifee compiled a list of things to do for me, which helped me stay busy and didn't think twice about continuing my re-feed day. Oh and watched The Nuggets take Game 1 v the Spurs...

    End of the day scale weight was 190. I am giving credit to the carb-up day, so I will re-weigh myself after day[15] or [16]...

    day[15]


    - Phase II -

    1 hour prior to my pre-wo supps, had a light snack

    Pre WO:
    1 hour before WO, 4 caps RPM
    .5 hour before WO, 3 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 2 caps PowerFULL & Super Cissus Rx

    Peri WO:
    6 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon

    Post WO: 1 cap TNA, PowerFULL, & Super Cissus Rx + 2 caps Vigor

    Sets:6
    Reps:4
    Rest:60

    A1)Barbell Step-ups:165x4(4), 170x4, 175x4
    // First time using BB for step-ups, usually use DB's, so load was heavy enough to maintain form and balance.
    A2)Underhand Bent-over Barbell Rows: 205x4(5), 215x4

    B1)Push-Press: 120x4, 125x4, 135x4, 140x4, 145x4, 150x4
    // Spent the first part of the year ‘rehabing’ right shoulder, where pressing overhead gave me problems, and actually hurt just using the bar. Tonight, it felt good, but haven’t regained all my strength back into my shoulders.
    B2)Cable Crunches: 100x4(6)

    C1)Power Cleans: 155x4, 160x4, 165x4, 170x4(3)
    // Last phase I was only doing hang cleans at 150x6(4) at the begining of my workout, so I was pleased with my power cleans, although my oly lifts are still weak.
    C2)Standing Calve Raises: 495x4(6)
    // 10 second negatives with person pulling down on the rack


    Overall a pretty solid workout, loads are still on the lighter side, because of the short recovery time.

    As far as RPM, I didn't feel any dramatic changes that I was reading in the thread. About 15 minutes after taking the pills, I felt my chest open up more, and I felt more relaxed with a clear mind. After taking the Poseidon, I felt a bit more energy, but did not feel aggressive. However, before I workout I like to relax and keep a controlled 'rage' for when my muscles are actually loaded.
    I maintained my strength throughout the entire workout and actually felt I could push it more.

    After the workout, I felt a solid pump, and my CNS actually felt fresh, where generally I will walk out where it feels taxed. So, all in all, RPM was quite nice if it was the reason for the sustained strength.

    Day[16] && Day [17]


    It rained non-stop yesterday from 5am till about 8pm
    I was still down to do some HIIT, whether it was outside or inside on a treadmill. However, a downstairs window was leaking and I spent my evening clean up water and resealing my windows...

    Day[18]
    Generally I workout at 8pm, mainly because I finally got teh lil lady to hit the gym again. Otherwise, I prefer to lift around 11am-12pm for my lunch. Today the misses had the day off so we hit the gym at noon.

    Pre WO
    11:00am 5 caps RPM
    // Felt a lot more stilmulation from the RPM this time. Could also be my last meal was 2 hours prior where last time it was probably a little less than an hour

    11:30am 3 scoops Xtend + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 2 caps PowerFull & Super Cissus + 1 cap TNA

    Peri WO
    6 scoops Xtend + 1 Scoop Poseidon

    Post WO
    1 Scoop Evolution + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 1 cap Retain

    Sets:3
    Reps:15
    Rest:70s

    A1)Pulldown *Used Flite machine:140x15(3)
    A2)Burpees: 15(3)
    // I was only supposed to do Squat Thrusts, but I thought I was a bad ass so I did Burpees instead, and man did they kick my ass towards the end of the 2nd set and all of my 3rd set

    B1)Swiss Ball Crunches: 25x15(3)
    // Abs felt shot from the Burpees
    B2)Back Ext: 25x15(3)
    // Got a pretty serious back pump, which kind of felt good, because my back was twisted from falling a sleep on the couch last night

    C1)Decline Bench Press:225x14, 225x10^5, 205x12^3
    ^10-15 second rest then continued
    //Chest felt strong, but after 8 reps the weight got heavy real fast

    C2)Seated DB External Rotations:15x15(3)

    D1)Squats: 135x15, 145x15(2)
    //Weight felt light, but it was taxing to get the full amount of reps. So, I focused on contraction, I always due, but I really accentuated each rep. I also paused 2 seconds at the bottom when I felt my ass touch my calves.
    D2)Seated Leg Curls:70x15(2), 55x15(2)
    //First set I kept my toes neutral, second toes pointed in, third toes pointed out. On Concentric portion of the lift, I pointed my toes towards me, and the eccentric I pointed my toes away. I dropped the weight on the last set to try and squeeze the weight more, but it felt as heavy as the first two sets.

    Unlike the 6 set 4 rep range, I felt it. I was still mentally sharp, but my body was pushed. I would like to think I could have pushe d it harder, but the weights chosen did elicit a high metabolic cost

    .5 hour prior - 3 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon + 2 caps PowerFULL + 2 caps Super Cissus + 1 cap TNA

    Sets: 1
    Reps:100 // Load enough to do 50, then rest 15s then max until you reach 100

    Bodysquats: 100

    Standing DB shoulder press:20x50, 12, 16, 15, 7

    DB Romanian Deadlift:20x70, 15, 15

    Seated BOFLEX rows:40lb resistancex50, 30, 30

    Stretching

    // The most boring workout ever, but legs got a good pump

    day[weekend]

    forgetable.

    day[22]

    Pre WO:
    1 hour before WO, CHAOS
    .5 hour before WO, 3 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 2 caps PowerFULL & Super Cissus Rx

    Peri WO:
    6 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon

    Post WO: 1 cap TNA, PowerFULL, & Super Cissus Rx + 2 caps Vigor + Evolution v10 + Poseidon

    Sets:6
    Reps:4
    Rest:55

    A1)Barbell Step-ups:185x4(6)
    // Pushed myself to the limits on the step-ups towards the end sets
    A2)Underhand Bent-over Barbell Rows: 205x4(6)

    B1)Push-Press: 140x4(6)
    B2)Cable Crunches: 100x4(6)

    C1)Power Cleans: 160x4(6)
    C2)Standing Calve Raises: 495x4(6)
    // 10 second negatives with person pulling down on the rack

    I pushed the intensity on the first sets, so by the time I reached the power cleans, weight started getting heavy. Either that or RPM is that good????
