    I haven't seen too many negative reviews on this board. That made me wonder if it was against etiquette to rate JW poorly. I mean no disrespect to the product or the company as every one else seems to like it. Thanks for following T.


  2. Day 31

    Monday, May 28, 2007

    Workout

    Legs Rep Range
    Narrow stance squat (a2g) 195 x 11 whoa!
    Reverse Alternating BB Lunge 70 x 12/side
    BB Cleans (a2g) 70 x 15

    I work my cleans more like a deep explosive front squat. The first 5 reps feel light. Then it hits you like a ton of bricks around rep 7 or 8. PANIC actually sets in around rep 11 and I get dizzy. Bring it on cleans!!!

    Diet

    My sister's college graduation party and today's holiday are making it tough. My cals and quality of intake are reasonable. But, my ratios are off, but not out of control.

    Supplements

    Restore: Day 1 for restore. I had slight enhanced mood during the workout. Of course, being a holiday, who's mood wasn't enhanced today?

    BAM: very small cool test boost is still felt.

    SuperCissusRx: I have a feeling I'm gonna be liking this a lot more than bulk Cissus. I believe the Rx has a higher concentration of cissus and 1 bottle will allow for 3 doses per day.

    Off Topic

    I've been hittin the search button hard on this board and several others while planning for my next stack. This board provides un-measurable motivation for me. I feel like I did when my dad first introduced lifting to me in junior high.

    all a company has to do is post a thread-testers wanted. if you post a bad review you may not get free supps any more. i rarely ask for samples and never sign up as a tester. my opinions are not biased.
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  4. I agree that through the first four weeks of JW I kept wondering, "When is this going to kick in???". Well, it's too bad you stopped. I really started to love the stuff when I got into that 4th week and it got even better as I tapped into a second bottle.

    But fair review. You probably didn't get all that much from it in 4 weeks. But you also have to realize that gaining 4 pounds of muscle and losing 5 pounds of fat is still no easy thing to do, even if your diet was on point. My guess is that the combination of changes in diet, workout routine, and supplementation helped. JW is not going to blow you away by any means. Keep on, keepin it on tho. I'm not an ALRI rep or anything but I am looking forward to running my own Evo stack. Best of luck with this one.

  5. JJC, thanks for stopping by. I ran the 4 weeks because I was following ALRI's protocols. Initially I was running the beginner protocol. But, thankfully, I switched to the "advanced" stack to get the ball rolling. Good call on running a second bottle of JW. Stop back and post some results when you get a chance.

    I agree 100%... the combination of everything is the key to my recomp so far.

    When you plan to run your evo stack, PM me. I have some ideas that you may want to consider. Oh and by the way, Day 2 on restore and changes are already kicking in!!!

  6. Day 32

    Tuesday, May 29, 2007

    Workout

    Cardio: 30 minutes light/moderate intervals

    Shoulders Rep Range (modified)
    BO DB Posterior Delts 30 x 15
    DB Lateral Raises 20 x 8
    Arnold Presses (modified) 40 x 11

    My rep ranges and weights were drastically different than last time I performed this routine. I did presses last which allowed for heavier weights in the isolation moves. I also modified my Arnold presses to have less rotation at the bottom and pressed into a neutral grip with my palms in. This kept shoulder pain to a moderate level.

    Diet

    I'm dialing in really well. Had a TON of protein for the holiday. I'm sure fat was slightly higher but I really kept carbs under control. Kept it to just 1 beer too!!!

    Supplements

    BAM: no change, working well

    Restore: A few days back, I mentioned that libido was slightly down and that my boys were feeling just a tad small. Well, restore completely solved that problem literally overnight! I slept incredibly and woke up with wood like 3 times. I also look more toned today than I have over the past few days.

    SuperCissusRx: good stuff. I'll be able to tell in about a week or so if it's worth the extra cash compared to the bulk.

    Off Topic

    Pool just opened up in my community so that might allow for an extra session of light cardio today. I've done more cardio in the last 6 weeks than I have since HS. Do you people really do this crap all the time?

    Good thing you switched protocols. I feel like the beginner one would not be that much fun. I got lucky on running a second bottle because of some really good personal advice someone gave me at another board...and now I'm doing the same for anyone who thinks of running JW.

    I "logged" my two bottle run of JW:
    JJC's Jungle Warfare/Powerfull Log!

    I stopped the log short because I didn't think anyone was following and also it was my first time using any kind of natural anabolic. But I had great results while eating like a machine.

    I'm thinking of running a double Evo stack with Pro-Anabol over 3-4 months. But I will defintely hit you up before I begin.

    Also, it seems like you are experiencing exactly what I would expect from Restore. It's supposed to help control estrogen at the end of the cycle...so leaning out and more full "boys" seem like sensible results.

  8. Day 33 & 34

    2 days rest

    Day 35

    Friday, June 1, 2007

    Workout

    Back and Bis Rep Range
    Neutral Grip Pullups BW x 10
    Underhand BB Row 145 x 12
    BO Reverse DB Flies 30 x 15
    DB Hammer Curls 40 x 10
    Rev BB Curl 50 x 14

    In PRRS, I didn't see much progress in the power routine. That being said, the power week seems to prime me for the next two weeks. I increased in reps or weight in every exercise, even with lack luster concentration today.

    Diet

    I've been short on cals the last 2 days due to stressful schedule at work. Today's diet was back on track.

    Supplements

    BAM: subtle aggression and mild increased vascularity (I might be too fat to tell if the vascularity would be better from BAM).

    Restore: I got a second wind at the end of my workout today. Maybe the 7-oxo analog is doing it's job when cortisol kicks in? If that's the case, holy crap that's cool!

    SuperCissusRx: WOW! If bulk cissus cut pain by 30 or 40%, this stuff knocks it down 50 or 60%! Unbelievable stuff.

    GABA: I've been stressed and woke up a few times over the past 2 nights. GABA is helping to get me back to sleep. It's not quite as effective as it was the first month, but that's to be expected. Still a great supplement for pennies.

    Off Topic

    A radio station was asking callers what their 3 "desert island" albums would be. I chose my 3 by picking albums that I like every single song:

    1) Led Zeppelin II
    2) Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon
    3) Red Hot Chilli Peppers: Californication

    I hear ya T. When I log again, I'll keep a personal journal on my computer. Then I'll post on the board once per week. It'll be easier for me to summarize and I think it'll be more useful for me and others in terms of feedback.

    Scrollin is a pain... especially when you can't pick your arms up after a workout to hold the mouse.

  14. Day 36

    Saturday, June 2, 2007

    Workout

    Chest and Tris Rep Range
    BB Decline Bench 185 x 6 PR?
    DB Incline Bench 65 x 11
    Low Cable Cross Over 30 x 15
    Straight Bar Pressdown 90 x 9
    1 Arm DB Overhead Extensions 20 x 15
    Machine Calf Raise 10 Plates x 5 (not full ROM)

    I went up in weights and reps on every movement. I expect this anyway with this only being my second time around on the PRRS routine. If I get to another time around, THEN I would be able to really gage the effects of my stack on strength.

    Diet

    Pretty solid/clean diet so far today. I did a much better job of getting in some preworkout carbs than I did last Saturday. It definately made a positive impact on my workout.

    Supplements

    BAM/Restore: I have more of a cocky, cofident, and funny attitude with this combo than I did with JW/BAM. It's perfect for workouts and does a great job for attracting women, as an added bonus.

    SuperCissusRx: Cissus will be a staple. I swear it's up there with creatine and my multi vitamin. My shoulder is feeling better every day.

    TRAC: I just took a 1/2 scoop today with some bulk arginine preworkout. Works like a charm.

    Off Topic

    I'd like to see sponsored logs run the new product as a stand alone. ANYTHING + creatine or a preworkout mix = a good stack that will produce positive results. Just my opinion, for what it's worth.

  15. Day 36

    Sunday, June 3, 2007

    Workout

    Cardio and abs.

    Body Comp

    Comparisons in relation to 12 days ago.

    Weight: 197.6 (down 1.4lbs)
    BF% 16.27% (down .87%)
    LBM 165.5 (up .5 lbs)
    BF 32.1 (down 1.9 lbs)

    I had a trainer "visit" me last night. She was 5'10", 142, and 14% bodyfat. How's that for motivation to keep me going in the right direction

    if you want to 'train' her get some aspire. i hope you got signed up for sample. my wife had to change positions 3 times last night before i got a nut. shes a little tired today from 'overtraining'.
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  17. btw those are decent results-anytime you can add muscle and drop bodyfat is a big deal.
    GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

  18. He11 ya! I'm fired up about those numbers. An outline of abs is in the shadows. That NEVER happens for me during a cut without sacraficing muscle. I'm obviously psyched about this routine and stack so far.

    I definately stopped by the PAL site. Lots of great deals and samples. Now only if they could come up with a recovery drink for our ladies

    glad you signed up for samples! ive got some rpm coming on tues, ill let you know how it goes. keep up the good work.

  20. Day 37

    Monday, June 4, 2007

    Workout

    Legs and Bis Shock
    Leg Extensions 180 x 10
    ... SS Narrow Leg Press
    Seated Hamstring Curls 80 x 10
    ... SS Wide Stance Leg Press

    Reverse Cable Curl 45 x 10
    ... SS Cable Curl
    High Cable Curl 17.5 x 15

    Lackluster workout. I'm not a fan of legs shock. Legs should be done slow, heavy, and gut wrenching.... not fast, light, and burning.

    Diet

    Nothing to note

    Supplements

    BAM/Restore: Libido is up and down. No vascularity differences but I might still be a bit too tubby to tell yet. Muscle hardness is just slightly up. Pumps don't last any longer than usual. Attitude is definately up and I think I see a zit on my back! That's a big deal cause I NEVER EVER have a zit anywhere. I'm mildly lethargic but it seems as if I can turn it on in the gym without any problem.

    SuperCissusRx: shoulder was a little achy today. Tomorrow's shoulder shock workout will be a huge test.

    GABA: talked to a pharmacist about my GABA and melatonin usage. He said using GABA for 3 or 4 nights a week and melatonin on occasion won't hurt anything. He also said that he doubts either could do any harm with conistent use or long term use... unless of course they were abused at higher doses in which case he wasn't sure.

    Off Topic

    I love lists... my favorite 3 less well known albums are:

    1) Captain Beyond (imagine deep purple playing a pink floyd concept album)

    2) Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes: Live (seen this one in concert!

    3) Jimmy Hendrix: The Isle of White (just a few days/weeks before Jimmy died I believe)
  21. Cool

  24. Day 38

    Tuesday, June 5, 2007

    Workout

    30 minutes light cardio

    Shoulders & Tris Shock ...modified
    Behind the back Shrugs 10 sets of 10 x 135
    DB Shrug 10 sets of 10 x 45
    Posterior delt/upright row/neutral grip shoulder press 30 x 15/10/10
    Sidelying Alternating Front/Laterals on Incline 10 x 10
    DB Kickbak 21's 20x15/10x10/10x10

    Shock workouts seem to work really well for me with smaller muscle groups, especially shoulders. It's difficult to hit all three shoulder heads plus traps in under 1.5 hours. Shock strategies take care of that.

    I used a partially neutral to reverse grip on the shoulder presses without pain. I believe the external rotation prevents my supraspinatus (rotator cuff) from the natural impingement in the subacromial space (shoulder joint). Looks like I have a new strategy

    Diet

    This journal really makes me own up to my diet. I'm sure it's the most difficult part of weight training for almost everyone.

    Supplements

    BAM/Restore: Although I'm getting slow but steady results, I seem to be accomodating to these supps. I would love to up the dosage of each by a cap.

    SuperCissusRX: I did cardio with a sweatshirt to warm up my shoulder. Then I shrugged first because that makes my shoulder feel great for whatever reason (kicks in the supraspinatus?). I used a neutral grip on my presses. I had relatively mild discomfort in today's workout so I believe the combo of my strategies plus the cissus worked well today.

    Amino Acids: I found Twinlab liquid amino acids BOGO at Rite Aid. I mixed them in with some gatorade for a "during" drink yesterday and today. Kept the energy going. But, I'd rather be famished post workout which makes me look forward to my shake.

    Off Topic

    Favorite 3 exercises:
    1) Leg Extensions
    2) Shrugs
    3) Calf Raises

    Those exercises feel good whether I'm doing 50 reps for fun or 5 reps with some grunting. I can say the word "shrug" and my traps grow! T, don't ask about the bench!!!

  25. the key is to mix it up. i see you've figured it out. get a pair of ankle weights and go to track, or mow grass. hit a heavy bag. go to a highrise and climb stairs, all kinds of stuff you can do to mix it up. i got a pair of oldschool ankle weights-20lbs each-started out mowing grass, then went to track and did 5 miles yeah thats right 5 miles. sunday went to 28 floor building and climbed up and back down again, now thats a workout!
