    They're non-commission. I'd actually prefer commission. I've worked a lot of commissioned jobs, including auto sales. I could apply to GNC at my local mall and work for commission but I prefer Vitamin Shoppe. Plus the location and traffic are much better, in an upper class area.



  2. Weight:
    152.8 lbs (-1.4 lbs since start)

    BodySpace stats updated. They're a bit misleading though. Details to be discussed in the 2 week review.

    I must have been holding a lot of water. Pretty large drop in weight over 2 days.

    Normally I'd be at the gym right now. I forgot to put my clothing and towels in the dryer when I woke up I'll be going this afternoon instead.

    Today's Diet
    Today will be around 3000 kcal.

    2 Week Review Of Pro-Anabol

    Positive Effects
    • After 6-7 days my muscles were much fuller and harder. Almost like a 24/7 pump. VERY nice effect. Not from shedding water either, PA seems to have no effect on that.
    • Strength is increasing rapidly.
    • Hypertrophy is good to very good. Delts have just exploded. Unflexed my arms are the same but flexed they're MUCH larger. Lats have gotten wider.
    • Increased mind-muscle connection. I have a much better connection to my lats that started around day 6-7 (same time as fullness). I can feel them much better than before.
    • Increased vasularity. Veins on my right bicep are popping that weren't even showing up before.
    • Minor increase in libido.

    Side Effects
    • Significant increase in body acne on shoulders, upper back, and chest.
    • Minor increase in face acne.
    • If taken close to bed it makes falling asleep difficult.
    • Increased sweating. I sweat like CRAZY at the gym now.

    Measurement Increases
    (unchanged measurements left out)
    • Chest (flexed): +0.25"
    • Shoulders: +0.75"
    • Neck: +0.375"
    • L Bicep (flexed): +0.25"
    • R Bicep (flexed): +0.125" (possible mismeasurement on first day, seems like a bigger increase to me)
    • Forearms: +0.25"
    • Thighs: +0.25"
    • Calves: +0.125"


    I'm very happy with PA so far. Not only does it work well for a bulk but with the increase in fullness and vascularity I think it would be a GREAT for contest prep. I can't wait to see how the next 2 weeks go

  3. Weight:
    153.4 lbs (-0.8 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    Worked on one of my personal websites all day. Learned quite a few new things in Photoshop. I got the basic design done but none of the content. Let me know what you think!

    I took a 45 min walk along the Erie canal this afternoon. It's 2 min from my house and an excellent place to walk, bike, or rollerblade.

    Today's Diet
    Will come out right on target, around 2500 kcal.

    Recovery
    [*****]
    Little bit of soreness in my hams and traps. Didn't interfere with anything though.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Today is day 3 of JW.

    Pretty poor form on DB curls and kickbacks. I may do rope curls to try to improve my form. I'm also going to try close reverse grip bench next time for tris.

    Had a nice short thunderstorm earlier today. The temp dropped 14 degrees in about 10 minutes. It was nice to cool off.


  5. Weight:
    154.8 lbs (+0.6 lb since start)

    Off Day

    Wow, I feel awesome today! It's great to be lifting heavy again. I have some soreness in my traps, upper back, delts, and glutes. Muscle fullness is ridiculous! I think my upper back is the hardest it has ever been. Biceps are so full and hard that it hurts a little to flex.

    A week and a half left to this bottle of PA. I'm watching the double dose logs closely. I may have to try that as part of my contest prep next year.

    Today's Diet
    Will be 2500 kcal as planned.

    Decided to drop it down a lot this afternoon. Had my normal large breakfast, PWO shake, and 3rd meal. After that I cut all of my meals down to around 200 kcal, mostly protein. Total for the day comes around 2100 kcal.

    Recovery
    [*****]
    Recovery is down. Still had some soreness in traps, upper back, and biceps. Nothing that interfered with the workout.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Really good workout today. My MMC was much improved today. During squats I was feeling my quads a lot more than normal. By the end of the workout I could feel most of my muscles better than ever. During the eccentric movement on curls my biceps felt awesome, hard to describe.

    I don't know if it's PA just getting better and better or JW kicking in but I'm loving it


  7. Weight:
    153.4 lbs (-0.8 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    Finally listed my remaining DVD collection for sale on eBay here. Everyone should bid it up so I'll have money for my first PH cycle later this year

    Some slight soreness in my traps and upper back. It's just the right amount to feel great

    I'll be taking a 1 hour walk later this evening.

    Today's Diet
    Will come in around 2100 kcal with 200+ g protein. Tomorrow will also be around 2100 kcal and then Sunday will be back to 3500 kcal on workout days and 3000 kcal on off days.


  8. Weight:
    152.4 lbs (-1.8 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    I did a lot of stuff around the house today, cleaning and such. Ended up doing no cardio.

    Today's Diet
    Around 2500 kcal. My roommate made up some excellent venison burgers so not sure of the exact totals.


  9. Weight:
    152.4 lbs (-1.8 lbs since start)

    Feeling the infamous JW lethargy. Too much stuff to get done to give in

    Workout coming in a few hours.

    Today's Diet
    Will be back at 3500 kcal.

    No DOMS.

    Other Observations / Comments
    I tried something a little different today. In a thread on DA dinoiii suggested eating no sooner than 2 hours before working out. Normally I eat about an hour beforehand. In the past I've felt dizzy, hungry, and weak when waiting that long. I haven't done it in a while so I wanted to see how it would be. Everything started out fine. By half way through I was feeling weak and uneasy, a bit like being hypo. I still pushed through it though. After 2 or 3 sets I was feeling normal again. Just for kicks I checked my blood sugar when I got home, it was 82 mg/dL (normal). I'll stick with eating 1 hour before from now on.

    I changed my ratings slightly so those who have colors turned off can see it properly.


  11. Weight:
    155.8 lbs (+1.6 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    Weight up quite a bit, mostly from water. I decided to eat big last night. Ate a whole chicken (minus the skin), some granola, sesame sticks, plus some other stuff

    So far the JW lethargy hasn't been that bad. I didn't wake up to piss last night which is extremely unusual (the water retention probably helped there). When I woke up this morning I was feeling pretty sluggish until I ate breakfast. Since then I've been fine.

    Today's Diet
    Aiming for 3000 kcal but being flexible. May be a little higher.


  12. Weight:
    158.4 lbs (+4.2 lbs since start)

    Weight shot up a lot today. I ate some junk food last night, the last for a long time.

    Today's Diet
    Will be 3300 kcal. From now on I'll be eating 3300 kcal on workout days and 2900 kcal on off days.

    Recovery
    [***--]
    Some minor DOMS, not noticeable once I started lifting.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Good workout. I'm using a bit too much back in my squats but they're improving. I'm focusing hard on keeping as straight as possible but it isn't working well.

    EZ Cable curls were awesome. MUCH easier to keep proper form than regular BB curls. I'll probably be sticking with them for a while.

    I switched a few other exercises as well. I did rotary calves instead of standing raises because I maxed the standing machine out. I wanted to try the Hammer Strength shrugs to see how different they would be. I like them a lot. I don't need to use straps on them because it keeps hands facing in. I'm a bit short for it though, next time I'll have to find the block of wood.

    I decided to switch up WMS for dextrose. I started using WMS around the same time as PA and want to see if it made any difference vs PA's effects. I'll be sticking with dextrose through next week.


  13. Weight:
    156.6 lbs (+2.4 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    I was eating too much before. I'm not happy with how much fat I've gained. By cutting back my diet to just over maintenance I hope to eliminate further fat gains. After I'm done with JW I'll be cutting for a few weeks.

    This afternoon I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I went for a 20 min shirtless jog with tanning lotion on. When I got back I sweat was pouring off me so I don't know how much of the lotion actually stayed on but I did tan a little. It's so damned hot out, I wish I had AC

    Today's Diet
    Today will come around 2900 kcal.


  14. Weight:
    157.0 lbs (+2.8 lbs since start)

    Last night I forgot to take JW until right before bed. I fell asleep right away but slept very lightly. I guess that's good though because rain woke me up at 2AM and my car windows were down. Ended up tossing and turning a bit later on in the night. I don't know if JW is to blame. I'll try taking it right before bed some other night. No lethargy upon waking in the morning.

    Today's Diet
    Today will be around 3200 kcal.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Pretty good workout, above average. Leg presses can go higher again next time. I'm liking cable curls a LOT more than DB curls. No wrist pain at all. I think I'm going to start doing wrist curls to bring up their strength.

    I have 2 weeks left to this cycle of HST. Full body workouts have been great for me but I want to switch it up. I've started planning my new workout. It will most likely be a 3 day on 1 off routine. I'll be hitting everything twice per week that way. Each day will be different exercises (eg leg day 1 will focus on quads, leg day 2 will focus on hams). I'll post more details when I come up with them

  15. Great Log so far DD! Nice work!


  16. Weight:
    156.6 lbs (+2.4 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    Weight down slightly from yesterday. If weight drops again tomorrow I'll increase my off days to 3000 kcal and workout days to 3500 kcal.

    No lethargy today Only a few days left on PA. Full review with measurements and pictures will follow!

    Today's Diet
    Will be ~2900 kcal.

    M.Ed. Ex Phys



  19. Weight:
    156.4 lbs (+2.2 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    Weight down again I'm bumping calories up starting today. On a positive note it seems that my stomach fat may have decreased. I'll know for sure when I do measurements on Tuesday for my final PA review. I can't believe it has been 4 weeks already!

    HST recommends eccentrics for the final 2 weeks but that's not doable for most exercises since I workout alone. Instead I'll be doing drop sets. I'm planning on doing one drop set per exercise consisting of 3-4 drops with minimal rest. I've never done them before so I'll see how that goes and take it from there.

    Today's Diet
    Going to a BBQ tonight. I adjusted the rest of my meals to leave 700 kcal available to hit 3000 kcal total for the day but I'll probably go a little over. No worries, need to makeup for the weight lost over the past few days.

    Not really. I only do 2 sets per exercise though so I have no idea if it helps with 3+ sets like most people do.


  21. Weight:
    158.8 lbs (+4.6 lbs since start)

    Weight up from all the sodium in the junk I ate last night at the BBQ.

    Today's Diet
    Went to another BBQ today. I had a can of soda, the first in about a year. Overall today should be around the target of 3500 kcal.

    Strength
    [*****]
    Strength was way up for most exercises on the first set. Tons of PRs!

    Stamina / Endurance
    [****-]
    Almost five stars, way above normal. The caffeine probably played a part here.

    Energy / Focus
    [****-]
    Energy up. Caffeine helped here too but I was pretty pumped to be doing drop sets.

    Pumps / Vascularity
    [*****]
    2 words: calf pumps. Whole body was pumped.

    Recovery
    [**---]
    Lower back was sore and hurting a little. It got worse after squats but feels quite a bit better now.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Awesome workout, best in a long time! Drop sets were amazing. I was so pumped up by the end. My only complaint is that it took too long. It would be better if I was doing a split routine with less sets per workout.

    Off Day

    Today's the final day of Pro-Anabol. Final measurements, pictures, and review will follow tomorrow. Don't despair though, I still have 6 weeks of JW left. The log must go on!

    My calves have never been as sore as they are today. My traps and glutes are also sore but not that bad.

    Today's Diet
    Will be on target at 3000 kcal.

  23. Looking forward to seeing your review.

    My calves were so sore this morning. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to work them today. Once I warmed them up they were ok.

    Today's Diet
    Will be around 3500 kcal.

    Recovery
    [**---]
    As mentioned above calves were very sore. I did have some other soreness but it was minor.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Overall a pretty good workout. Not as good as the last one though. PA is already wearing off

    Final Pro-Anabol review should be coming tonight!

    I already have my measurements and pics taken. I'm really impressed with some of the measurements!


  25. Weight:

    Off Day

    Weight keeps bouncing all over the place. I may eat the same all next week to reestablish a base level.

    Soreness isn't as bad as I expected today. Calves are much better. Back is still a bit sore and tight though.

    Today's Diet
    Comes out to ~3030 kcal.


  26. Weight:
    158.6 lbs (+4.4 lbs since start)

    Up to a few days ago I was eating 7 meals per day. Earlier this week I decided to switch to 6 meals to save time and effort. I've found that 6 meals works fine for off days but not so well for workout days. Since my PWO shake has doesn't have as many calories as a normal meal I'd have to compensate by making the rest of my meals much larger. It works better to have 7 meals. So from now on 6 meals on off days, 7 meals on workout days.

    Today's Diet
    Should be 3500 kcal.

    Fullness was pretty good but pumps weren't. Chest and delts were pumped, rest of my body really wasn't.

    Recovery
    [***--]
    Very little DOMS. A little in my calves and back.

    Other Observations / Comments
    Lower back was feeling pretty weak and sore so I only did 3 sets of squats. Otherwise felt pretty good.

    I went to put on one of my button up silk shirts and realized it's too small across the chest! Most of my clothing is getting a little tight on me, I really need a new wardrobe


  27. Weight:
    158.8 lbs (+4.6 lbs since start)

    Off Day

    For some reason I felt really good today. Very upbeat and a little aggressive in a good way. I found another shirt that doesn't fit me. My wardrobe keeps getting smaller.

    Feeling some slight pain in my knees when standing up. Very minor but unusual for me. I never have joint pain.

    One more week of drop sets then switching to the new routine. It's going to be 3 on, 1 off. I'm going to plan it out tonight and tomorrow.

    Today's Diet
    FitDay says 3005 kcal.

  28. Fantastic log - very interested to see how things go - keep it up.

    Alot of people seem to have the acne/skin issues with the ALRI stack (and others I'm sure) - I'm on week 3 of the EVO Stack (JW/BAM) at the moment and it seems taking a shower pre and post workout helped to clear things up. For me at least.

    Again great read so far!!!

    Off Day

    I slept well last night, JW had no impact. I felt slightly dehydrated when I woke up and had a very slight headache but it went away in minutes.

    Going to a car show tomorrow with my Porsche 944. Hoping to sell it. Instead of doing cardio this afternoon I cleaned my car. Still have a bit more to do.

    Today's Diet
    FitDay says 3035 kcal.
