    gitrdone's HX2/MFX/R2/RPM 4-week cycle


    Well I finally ordered this stack and am gonna try to make it work for 4 weeks. I am 6'3" 191lbs right now and looking to hit that 200.. or really want 205. 4 weeks is gonna be a challenge but I lift hard and am striving for this objective. Anyways, this is the cycle I have come up with:

    **Week One** 6/12/2007 - 6/17/2007

    HX2 - 4/day (1 am, 1 lunch, 1 pre w/o, 1 bed) ~6 hours apart

    MFX - 4/day (1 am, 1 lunch, 1 pre w/o, 1 bed) ~6 hours apart

    R2 - 1 cap am, 1 cap pre w/o, 1 cap post w/o

    RPM - 4 caps 1 hour pre w/o

    MultiV - 1 am, 1 post w/o


    **Week Two** 6/18/1007 - 6/24/2007

    HX2 - 2 am, 2 pre w/o

    MFX - 4/day (1 am, 1 lunch, 1 pre w/o, 1 bed) ~6 hours apart

    R2 - 1 cap am, 1 cap pre w/o, 1 cap post w/o

    RPM - 4 caps 1 hour pre w/o

    MultiV - 1 am, 1 post w/o


    **Week Three** 6/25/2007 - 7/1/2007

    HX2 - 2 am, 2 pre w/o

    MFX - 4/day (1 am, 1 lunch, 1 pre w/o, 1 bed) ~6 hours apart

    R2 - 1 cap am, 1 cap pre w/o, 1 cap post w/o

    RPM - 4 caps 1 hour pre w/o

    MultiV - 1 am, 1 post w/o


    **Week Four** 7/2/2007 - 7/8/2007

    HX2 - 2 am, 2 pre w/o

    MFX - 4/day (1 am, 1 lunch, 1 pre w/o, 1 bed) ~6 hours apart

    R2 - 1 cap am, 1 cap pre w/o, 1 cap post w/o

    RPM - 4 caps 1 hour pre w/o

    MultiV - 1 am, 1 post w/o

    Any input on this stack is appreciated. I was wondering if I can bump my dosage up to 5 on MFX or that might just be overkill. My reasoning for this is there are 120 caps in the bottle, which I have one of, and after one week of 4/day, 5/day from then on would finish out the bottle and give me my biggest bang for the buck. However, if this is unhealthy then I don't want to risk my health over a few extra caps left in my bottle. Thanks to everyone who follows along and I'll try to keep it posted as much as possible.

    Yeah I might do that, gonna see how 4 feels today for my first dose. Love to be focused and just pump out reps and get my s*** done so 5 might be in the near future.

    As far as the performance of this stack, I cannot say anything yet as it is my first day on it but I have a feeling I will really be pleased. The RPM however definitely kept me very focused and boosted my energy levels to keep a solid pace throughout the workout. Going to keep up with 4/day for this week but think that I can handle 5/day based on today, which I might try out next week. Can't wait to see how the H2, MFX, and R2 react with me come next week. I'm hoping to feel and see great results. Sorry the abs section is so in depth, just my basic ab workout minus days when I do leg raises and knee raises to target my lower abs.

    Also, I am taking Xyience NOX-CG3 and after reading a few reviews of RPM many people have suggested dropping any NO products b/c RPM gives a good pump by itself. It also contains creatine which might be holding more water weight than I want. I'm just trying not to be fooled by fluctuating weights from these other products if that's the case. Any suggestions?

    Weight Out: 190

    Today was a good workout, felt a little weak but still was focused and ready to work. Was a long day at work so I am gonna blame the fatigue on that. Don't know what was up with my weight today... down almost 4 pounds?! I dropped the Xyience and maybe it has something to do with water retention but I wouldn't imagine it being so drastic in one day, maybe I just didn't eat as much or intake as much water as previously. However, I do notice myself becoming leaner and more cut so maybe I have just dropped some fat but still seems like way too much weight. Anyways, the workout went well and I'm really liking this stack. Still really looking forward to seeing results in the near future as I hear weak one isn't s***, it's week two where you really start to notice.

    Workout Summary

    Today's workout began very well as I was really feeling the RPM and ready to pump out some reps. However, I lost focus during my shoulder routine when I met up with a friend and we started talking about plans for this father's day weekend. We began talking about going to the lake and wakeboarding and I lost focus taking too long b/t sets so I might do a little bit more for my shoulders tomorrow. Also about to head back home so quickly went through my exercises which increased some fatigue. My BW was up slightly which is a good sign, hopefully it's muscle gain due to the AX stack.. time will tell, I really need to get a scale to take morning weights.

    hey man glad to see that RPM is having some effect! i love that stuff!! just some food for thought, completely my opinion...after reading around here alot i've decided to ditch the scale for now and not worry much about my weight at all- just use the mirror as my guideline..you're weight may stay the same +/- 1 or 2 lbs because you'll be losing fat with the retain at the same time gainin muscle...at first the scale was not my friend...so keep that in mind if you ever question your weight...good log so far though

    Thanks for the advice, it was what I thought was going on and glad to know it isn't just me. I think I am gonna bump up to 5 RPM tomorrow and see how I feel, if it's too much I'll just back down to 4. So far the results are definitely positive! I can tell an increase in muscle size and definition from the stack and it's only been one week! I might be ordering another 4 weeks after week 2 if it's gonna work this well. I have a log from Friday, just not with me so I will post it tomorrow with Monday's log. I took Saturday and today off but was out on the lake all day tubing and wakeboarding so that was a good workout none the less.

    Bumped the RPM up to 5 today and damn I didn't want to quit. I was in the weight room for almost 2 hours today, guess I am gonna sleep well tonight! Loved the extra energy and focus from that 5th cap. The stack is also working very well, I can feel myself getting stronger and definitely noticing some changes in the mirror. The retain is really helping knock off some unwanted lower torso fat. As I said before, really wanting to see the results after this week based on some pictures I took 2 weeks ago. Once I get around to the new set of pictures I will try to post some before and after so far and definitely will at the end of the 4 weeks... which might only be half way through if I order some more. Liftitbig, I know what you mean now when you felt like an animal in the weight room, that RPM is the s***!

    Forgot to mention: Did one of those electronic body fat % meter things that you hold out in front of you when I was back at home and it read out 7.0% but that was after I had worked out and it was one of those electronic ones so give or take +2-4% I am guessing. Based on that I think I am right under 10% or near there just as an update on a BF% b/c I never gave one.

    Day 8

    Today's W/O: Chest, Tris, Abs

    Didn't log today but did the same routine as last week except instead of cables on chest I used free weights.

    Wasn't really in the mood for a workout today and felt very fatigued so that's why I didn't log it. It didn't really affect the weight I lifted as that was consistent but I just didn't feel the determination to keep lifting, just one of those off days I guess. I also had a pain in both of my forearms that I began to feel yesterday during my bicep workout. It is a sharp pain on the outer sides of each forearm that feels deep.. like its my bones or something. Anyone have any ideas on why I might be feeling this? I know I have read some reviews of the AX stack I am on drying out joints and what not from estrogen blocking but it isn't in a joint it's in my mid forearm. Maybe I just need to drink more milk? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah I'm fine, was just an off day I guess.. hit the gym today and damn was I ready to lift! Tore through my exercises like an animal. I was in and out in less than an hour today and I got a lower ab routine in as well. I got some stuff to do right now but I will post a log later tonight when I get back home.

    Still slacking on the log but I think I am just gonna start posting how I am reacting to the stack rather than my entire workout routine as it should stay pretty close to what ya'll have already seen. If I hit a new PR I will probably post that but I think I have given a good idea of what my daily routines are for everything.

    As you can see I attached 4 photos to this post, 2 from the front and 2 from the back. These are about a month apart, the first from May 18 and the second from today. Just a few pictures to show my progress after a month, however I have only been on my stack for 10 days but most of the change has happened within this time frame.

    A quick report on the stack:
    Aggression: Not really too high, I yell at my dog more
    Acne: Always have had spurts of it but no dramatic increase and none on my back
    Libido: Don't really feel a huge change from the stack.. I'm always chasing tail
    Strength: Increasing
    Definition: Hell yeah!
    Sleep: Actually getting better sleep since I have started the stack, might actually be oversleeping which could be causing some fatigue along with my eating habits which are flat out terrible

    Did a quick workout this afternoon and did my back routine. Felt good today and was very energetic, hit the weights hard and got a good pump. After the workout I went to the local Nutrition First and did a little grappling in the back room ring with one of the MMA trainers. Damn, that was a workout. I think I am gonna start trying to do that 2 or 3 times a week for some cardio with some bag work also. But for now... TGIF.

    Sorry for the lack of updates, been pretty busy and just now getting to it. Well I am on day 18 of the stack and I am seeing some great results. As I am just cruising into week 3 the results have been phenomenal, my weight has fluctuated b/t 188-194 over the past few weeks but I believe this is due to the correlation of fat loss and lean muscle gains. I have definitely become stronger, got a new PR on bench the other day. Warmed up with a set 225 8 reps then hit 275 for 5 and then tossed up 305 one time to set a PR. I've never lifted over 285 in a single rep before so this was pretty good. Hoping to get it up to 315 by the end of the summer so I can slap 3 plates on each side and think "hell yeah." Overall I am stronger. I have found myself increasing weight on most of my exercises or be able to do more reps of what use to be my heaviest set. There is one problem though, don't think it has anything to do with the supplements I am taking, and that is the problem with my forearm I complained about before. It feels like a shin splint but along the outside of my forearms if you were to hold your arm out straight, palm down. This has been very noticeable in my bicep workout and has actually caused me to have much trouble even doing it. So, yesterday was bis and shoulders and we did shoulders first and I sat down on the preacher seat to do my first rep and I had to put he bar down after 2 reps. I guess I have strained some tendons or smaller muscles doing heavier weights than my forearms were ready for. In order to still work my biceps I did various pull ups holding dumbbells with my feet, which I actually liked as it gave me more of a full body effect. I guess this is all I can do for them right now while I let this injury heal.

    Aggression: Same
    Acne: A little more showing up around my face than usual, not all at once, just more consecutively.
    Libido: Strippers this weekend.
    Strength: Setting new PRs
    Definition: Oh yeah and a little bit more size.
    Sleep: Sleeping well. Been having to get up early for work the past few days to get some stuff done and find myself waking up easier and feeling more rested.

    Back and legs today

    Weekend Update:
    Heading to the beach Monday until Thursday but still going to try and make myself get a workout in each day. Hopefully trying to look cut and pumped for the girls going with us is going to keep me motivated.. we'll see. Guess it will just depend on how late we stay out and if I can get up early enough before hitting the beach. Damn the 4th of July.. why come right in the middle of my stack?!

    Nah, I did some research about it and found a lot of people with the same issue. Seems to be just stress on the smaller outer forearm muscles or the stretching of tendons in the forearm that causes the pain.. kind of like rolling an ankle. I just figure if I give it a week or two off and just stick to the pull ups for my bicep routine with maybe some lighter weight dumbbell curls and the pain subsides I will be fine. If after that time I still have trouble with it I will probably go see a PT or orthopedist about the pain. I've had the same feeling in the past and it came and went with the avoidance of irritation so I'll see how it plays out.

    Ok, once again it's been awhile but I'm back. Never made it to the gym or got a chance to run while I was at the beach Forgot my shoes and the beach was too crowded, including running in the white sand in Destin sucks. But, I got back at it Friday with a great chest workout, really hit the gym hard and felt great. While on vacation I still took my stack, which was probably just a waste but now I'm down to my last week. I skipped Sat and Sunday's dosage so I would have enough to take it up a level for this last week. Today I moved my dosage up to 5 mfx and 5 h2 rather than 4. Took 2 of each pre-w/o, definitely could feel that mfx pumping through me more than before. Had a good shoulder and bi's day lifting heavy on the shoulders but still keeping it easy on my bi's due to the forearm problem I was having. Did 6 sets of 8 pull-ups with a 20 b/t my feet and a few sets of hammer curls. No sign of the pain today but still want to keep it easy while it recovers. I am attaching a collage of front side pics I took from 5-18 until today (7-9). I will post again at the end of the week when the stack is over. From the looks of them, I seem to have more size and width today than the previous but I look the most cut in the pictures from 6-21. Guess that was from too much boozing at the beach but what can you do, got a lot of compliments on how I was looking there so guess it's ok. Anyways, check out the pics, let me know what ya'll think and I'll be back with a post to round out the cycle. Thinking I am going to take 2 weeks off (Mace.. is that enough or should I go 3?) and then going to order another 4 weeks, just don't have the funds right now. Loving this product. Keep lifting, stay strong, git-r-done.

    2 weeks is fine!

    GREAT PROGRESS, man!
