Started my/ cycle today. I will be doing plyometric exercises. Some dumbbell exercises, mostly full body exercise( squat curl shoulder press – lunges). Uphill sprints. Goal is to increase power, speed and recovery for sport specific training.. This is more of a performance test thing over trying to look a certain way. I have trained in Thai boxing and Jiu-jitsu on and off for 10yrs. I have lifted at a moderate level since high school. Any tips or suggestion would be great.

Your plan looks good the only things Id tweek a little is get 50gm or more pro before training and drink the bcaas during training but it still looks very thought out.Good luck!

ive found that citrulline malate goes great with incarnate. $12 for 100gms here at np. really felt a difference! good luck-incarnate is also great by itself.
Subbed! Good Log!
just add cm to your bcaas, i think that will work. ive been doing this ankle weight thing, cut half the time off it takes to finish since been taking incarnate. nothing but good things to say. forearm injury is 80% improved!
Did 5 x 25 of lunges with 80lb dumbell.... variations...balance lunges, super skaters, step back lunges, alternating side lunges, three way lunge
3 sets of 50 hindu squats. Wall squats till i fell down
threw pull ups in as well, 5 sets of 7 ... taking it easy on the old shoulder injury. Thanks to cissus I've been able to start doing them again.
Incarnate - Not sure if its been enough time to tell if its effecting my strength yet... will be doing sprints tomorrow so I will get a idea of the stamina effect.
Reset Ad - I havnt been able to notice anything as of yet... maybe a little more energy / sense of well being...maybe placebo effect..... more to come.
brother should take a bit longer to notice the effects of Incarnate, it takes approx 2 weeks for carnosine levels to increase. By week 2 and 3 you will be loving it!!..keep us updated!
hey john you on your 2nd bottle yet? im about a week into my 2nd. from the research i looks like you get added benefits right up to 6th month. thats what im going for. with adding the cm my endurance is crazy. by 6 months will think about swimming english channel
bigT, I decided to go with NP Ultimate MassPump Stack . For about 7 buck more I get all this
100 gram container of Arginine Ethyl Ester
100 gram container of Creatine Ethyl Ester or Creatine Gluconate
100 gram container of Citrulline Malate
how much should I take of each and when?
definately get the cee. wasnt that impressed with the gluconate. ive never tried the aee, i went with aak, but start with 1/4 tsp and go from there. the citrulline im doing 3 grams pre and post. i would reccomend adding incarnate it has cissus in it already and is good for many things-research it. if you dont get incarnate at least get beta-alanine pills from np, their cheap but not as effective. do 3 gms cee pre and post. i highly reccomend some form of beta-alanine to go with this, incarnate being my first choice-they go together like cofee and doughnut. hope this helps. good luck.:donut:
thanks bigT, already got the incarnate going on the first week and waiting for the Beta Alanine to kick in. Ive been taking the last of some green bulge I had left. My legs were spent for some reason after leg day. Is there supposed to be DOMS with that combo? Seems to be lingering for some reason. Cant wait to use the CM with incarnate
no doms, wait till 2nd or 3rd week. incarnate starts gradual, the cissus should start kicking in soon and that will be the end of doms. this is a great stack but give it time. effects improve rather than diminish the longer your on it. wait till 4th week and you'll beloving it. be patient bro. btw i didnt add cm till end of 4th week, wish i would have started it sooner. if your interested in the results look at man body octane and x10 thats some pretty awesome results.imo.
5 100 yard sprints - Thai knee drills back
2 100 yard uphill sprints - 20 squat thrust after each
5 100 yard sprints - Thai knee drill back
2 100 yard uphill sprints - 20 squat thrust
2 mile jog
change incarnate dose for the rest of the first week to load faster. Not sure if this helps or not but Im taking 2 pre breakfast, 3 before and 3 after workout.
this was my first cardio day due to weather. Didn't seem to get as tired and seemed to have stronger finishing power. Recovery was much faster. Got wicked thirsty
hey bro, that kind of w/o was made for incarnate/cm, your w/o's will really put it to the test. good job, keep it up.
almost 2 weeks into it and I must say..... Palo Alto Labs has given me a new and improved reserve tank. I did cardio today.
5 100yrd uphill sprints
5 100yrd sprints
(alternating between the two)
did Thai knee drills walking back between sprints then ran 2.5 miles. The only rest I had between uphill and regular was about 1 min walking back (while doing knee drills). Im really starting to see the effects in my endurance but the recovery effects are really amazing me. Strength is improving as well. Im very impressed and will be ordering another bottle after my Xfactor test next month. Not sure if mixing the two is a good idea because of the cissus.
Oh yea.... Im up 2 lbs and down 2 sizes in my waist.
