    Millenium Sports Technologies Stim Free Ragnarok Log (including RPM stim free beta)!


    Alright, I finally started this thing up, so here we go with the details.

    Sex:Male
    Age: 22
    Weight: 184 lbs.
    Height: 5'10"
    BF%: Estimated 10-12% (a guess, but I have measured lower than that before , so I am shooting high just in case)
    Goals:Functional Conditioning and Strength

    The primary focus of this log is to document the benefits to my training from using MST Ragnarok, caffeine free, warrior melon flavor. I took my first dose yesterday (a rest day, but it was a "test" dose). I used 10 oz. water and mixed it with one scoop in an ABB shaker cup (no fins, but it is big). First thoughts upon ingestion: Mmmmmm! This stuff tastes real good, no lies. It also mixes extremely well, though I will use more water in the future to try to get the little floaties that I did have remaining (not many).

    It should be noted that I also take these supplements:
    -RPM stim-free beta (courtesy of rms80, thanks bro!)
    -ABB protein RTDs
    -3 different greens supplements
    -Psyllium Husk
    -Acai Berry
    -Caffeine (on occasion)

    Nothing else is being stacked right now to keep this log accurate for MST. I appreciate the free stuff and am trying to return the favor with accurate info. I will also comment briefly on the RPM from time to time, but we all know what this stuff does, and stim free only seems better, let me tell you! My doubts about that product and its caffeine content are resolved.

    Here comes the tricky part. I am turning over a brand new leaf in my training. I am combining bodyweight training days with compound heavy lifting days. It is an experiment, but one that I think will yield some good results. I will post my exact workouts later, but the split looks like this:

    Day 1: Bodyweight Training
    Day 2: Weight Training
    Day 3: Rest
    (repeat)

    Simple, and its frequency will make sense when you see the workouts. The program is based off of recent info from Brooks Kubik and Pavel Tsatsouline that I have come across. I am looking for functionality and not useless sarcoplasm or mitochondria. Again, size is NOT the goal here.

    Will post more after my first workout tonight. Any comments are welcome.

    NOTE: This is intended to be a 40 day log, as that is the amount of product I received to take the stuff once daily (Ragnarok, I mean).

    Subscribed. I like the idea of heavy compounds and BW exercises in the same session. I usually train in that manner, also.

    Alright, I'm catching up today. I did not get around to posting again last night after my workout for various insignificant reasons (READ: vagina). There will be TWO posts today to catch up. Without further ado, here was what I did for my first bodyweight workout based on some of the dinosaur bodyweight training system recommendations:

    +6.18.07+
    (1:30 rest between all sets and supersets)

    Push ups (with handles for greater range of motion)- 20, 20, 10, 12, 10, 12, 12, 11=107 NEXT W/O goal: 120
    NOTE: I can do more than 20 push ups per set, but I was trying to pace myself. The results will be better next workout, I believe.

    SUPERSETTED WITH:

    Pull ups-10, 7, 6, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5= 48 NEXT W/O goal: 55

    Back Extensions-15, 10, 7, 6, 4=42 NEXT W/O goal: 50

    SUPERSETTED WITH:

    Knee bends (aka freehand squats)- 30, 20, 20, 20, 20= 110
    NEXT W/O goal: 130
    NOTE: Again, I was pacing myself with these. I think I may do better than 130 next time around. I usually try to avoid failure if I can to prevent CNS damage and negative "feedback".

    Wrestler's Bridge- 39 sec. hold NEXT W/O: 1 minute

    Front Bridge- 25 sec. hold NEXT W/O: 35 sec.

    Leg Raise on bench- 15, 11, 11, 11, 10=58 NEXT W/O: 65

    Standard Plank:1 min. NEXT W/O: 1:15

    Gorilla Hold: 50 sec. (WUSS!!) NEXT W/O: 1:00

    Newspaper Crush: 6 pages per hand NEXT W/O: 8 pages



    CONCLUSION: My muscular endurance, is, well, feminine...
    I mean, for a guy who can bench press an estimated 250+, I should be able to do more than this. I even had the assistance of the Ragnarok, which pumped my muscles sickeningly full of blood, I must say. I know its the reps as well, but so far I like this stuff. I will wait to see how well I increase in my repetitions. Keep in mind that I am not going too high in reps before I switch to more difficult exercises. I WON'T be doing endless standard push ups! Once I can fit about 200-250 into those eight sets every workout, I'm moving to the one legged version, elevated, gorilla, and so on.

    For now, I'm just girly...:chick:

    Onto the weights in my next post, which will be deviously simple, but eventually very heavy...

    Alright post #2 for the day...

    This is day 3 of my Ragnarok Warrior Melon caffeine free use. Too many words in that name. Anyway, I used it today 1 hour pre workout as usual with 12 oz. of water with no other supplements. As usual, very pleasant taste and texture.

    Today's workout will draw some criticism from you. It is only two compound lifts, and I am starting at 3 sets each. That's it, twice a week. Sound too brief? We'll see, I am taking the word of Pavel Tsatsouline, from his work "Power to the People!". I haven't used it before, so it is new to me as well. You slowly acclimate your CNS to lifting more weight each time. Muscular size is not the goal, just utilizing what you have for more strength. You do it in cycles, starting low, building up slowly, hit a wall, then back off a little and start again a little higher. Kind of like periodization, just a little simpler. I have modified the system only slightly, adding one more set than he recommends for my particular goal. He also recommends more frequency, but I am trying to see if it will work in conjunction with my bodyweight training. Best of both worlds is the idea here. We'll see.



    Here is the workout for today:

    Dead Lift: 295 x 5 (easy!!) 270 x5 (90% of first set), 250 x 5 (80% of first set)
    Start at 300 lbs. next w/o

    Side Press (a variation of the bent press, an old strongman lift): 60 x 5 (easy again!!), 55 x 5, 50 x 5
    Start at 65 lbs. next w/o

    That's it. Call me crazy, we'll see if it works. I am a guinea pig for you my friends!

    Felt strong throughout the workout, and the R-ROK had me pretty foked. Now time to sleep.

    Next is a rest day, on which I will probably log some nonsense related to something...nonsensical.

    I think this is a great program. I used a program very similar in my powerlifting days with excellent results. I think you've made a great choice and your bodyweight training won't interfere with it either. Great job!

    Interesting setup, to say the least. It makes perfect sense so hopefully it will work out for you. Nice last couple of workouts, also.

    ALRIGHT, gotta catch up for the THREE days now. I was staying at my father's to watch his dogs while he was away and did not have reliable internet. Not even a friggin' network.

    6/20/07
    My birthday. Guess what I did...JACK. Happy birthday. Still took my Rag, and it still was good. Rest day, so not much going on here.


    6/21/07

    Second bodyweight workout. Here's what it looked like:

    Push Ups: 25, 20, 12, 13, 12, 12, 13, 13=120
    Next Goal is 130
    (supersetted with)

    Pullups: 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 5, 5, 5=51
    Next Goal is 55

    Freehand squats: 35, 25, 23, 23, 21=127
    Next Goal: 135
    (supersetted with)

    Back Extensions: 15, 12, 9, 7, 6=49 (so close!!)
    Next Goal: 55

    Wrestler's Bridge: 1:00 Next Goal 1:10

    Leg Raise: 16, 12, 12, 12, 10=62 Next Goal 70

    Front Bridge: 0:39 Next Goal 0:45

    Plank: 1:10 Next Goal 1:20

    Gorilla Hold: 1:00 Next Goal 1:10

    Newspaper Crush: 7 pages per hand Next Goal 8


    As you can see, everything improved. Let's see if it keeps up, and how much.



    6/22/07

    Rested today because of poor planning. My band practices on Fridays, which takes up all of my time after work unless I get off early. I worked to the bell today, and there wasn't any way I was getting in the gym this morning. I will work out for the next three days before taking another rest.

    Another weight training day today. Here's what it looked like:

    Dead Lift 300 x 5, 270 x 5, 250 x 5 NEXT w/o 305 lbs.

    Side Press 65 x 5, 60 x 5, 55 x 5 NEXT w/o 67 lbs.


    These workouts are still pretty light, so I don't have much comment on them. One thing I will say that I have learned in the past few weeks is that deadlifts start in your toes, not in your legs. Ditto for side or bent press. I have only recently learned this, and I think the potential strength benefits from this knowledge are very promising.

    Pre workout I took: Ragnarok, 6 stim free RPM, 1 200 mg caffeine tab (Prolab)

    I felt: Pretty sweet, I must say. A very good synergy between all of the ingredients above. I would fear to use that much stuff on my bodyweight days because of possible dehydration (I get that from a lot of supplements if I don't CHUG many liters of water). I drink about a gallon of water a day, which I do not think at this point is sufficient, though I only weigh 185. I never get cramps, but I hate thirst, and supplements just make me thirsty as hell.

    Tonight I have a metal show to play. I will drink rum and beer, though I will try to moderate what I take in. I will try to avoid extreme drunkeness for the sake of my bodyweight training tomorrow.

    UFC fights tonight for free!! Can't wait! :bruce3:

    Today, as a one time experiment (I'm trying to keep it mainly Rag pre workout for accuracy) I took:

    1 scoop Ragnarok
    3 caps Applied Nutriceuticals anabolic beta (no name for it, I'm just calling it stim free RPM)
    3 caps of regular RPM

    Result: Keep in mind, RPM is not supposed to really affect your pump, so I have to assume my pumps today were the result of the Rag. Frankly, it was just SICK. Veins everywhere, my muscles were swollen with massive amounts of blood. CRAZY pump from this stuff. The rag is kicking in very nice! My focus, as can be expected from such a stack, was just out of this world. I got a lot done today. Check out the workout:

    Push ups: 27, 21, 14, 14, 14, 14, 14, 13=131 Next goal:140
    (supersetted with)

    Pull ups: 11, 9, 7, 7, 6, 6, 5, 5=56 Next goal:still 60

    Freehand squat: 45, 32, 30, 26, 25=158 Next goal:165
    (supersetted with)

    Back Extensions: 16,13, 10, 11, 10=60 Next goal: 65

    Wrestler's Bridge: 1:10 Next goal: 1:20

    Leg Raise: 20, 14, 14, 13, 10=71 Next goal: 80

    Front Bridge: 0:50 Next goal: 1:00

    Plank: 1:20 Next goal: 1:30

    Gorilla Hold: 1:10 Next goal: 1:20

    Newspaper Crush: 5 pages Next goal: (8 pages)




    As you see the only thing that went down was the last one, which I don't consider extremely vital to this program. I did so much work before it, I just wanted to eat and not stand there violently crumpling paper. I gave in, I guess. Still, that gorilla hold hurts man! I was only shy of my pull up goal by a few, but that is a hard exercise for me. It still went up considerably. I will get there!

    I am very pleased with my progress so far. I might actually be decently good at these exercises someday soon if I keep it up.


    For those interested in my band, you can go to www.myspace.com/beyondfatal

    Listen to the tracks "Universal, Diabolical" and "Ever Reign", they are years more recent than the others.

    We are a death metal band, which means about 5% of the human population of earth has the potential to like us. I started doing this nonsense when I was 16 and haven't found a way to stop yet

    I also do another band that is completely different with the same guys, but we haven't released anything yet. I will understand if you guys don't like stuff as heavy as Beyond Fatal, it is pretty gruesome for even me to listen to sometimes. I am the vocalist, by the way, so I am the part that makes it so bad!

    AWESOME workout, bro! I'll check out your music when I get a chance. I am a death metal fan myself. Nothin' like a little Hatebreed or Lamb of God to get me pumped for a workout.

    Hatebreed is more Hardcore than death

    Anywho, I am not a big death metal fan, but you guys have a solid sound and I could see you guys with a major label like Metal Blade

    I appreciate the compliment, though over the years death metal has lost its charm for me. I do it mostly now because it would disappoint my friends and what fans we have if I didn't. I see the damage I am doing to my voice, though, and I think that if I ever want to sing clean again I am going to have to stop in the next few years. Just this weekend I was spitting blood! I would quit, but I have been doing it for so long, and every time I try I get the same god d*mn guilt trip.

    I do enjoy it sometimes, when the live shows get real intense. Those moments are not as frequent as I would like. We are a very dynamic band live, but in a rural area it is difficult to find a large fan base.

    Anyway, today's workout:

    Dead Lift: 305 x 5 (still very easy), 275 x 5, 250 x 5 Next workout: 310
    Side Press: 67 x 5, 60 x 5, 55 x 5 Next workout:70


    I'm thinking I will finish my weight training days with some jump roping from now on. I need better cardio, and I feel the rope will help me explode from the toes up, which is working very well for me I might add. This simple point has made my dead lifting form so much better. I can't even believe it.

    Anyway, bodyweight tomorrow, and I admit that I am modifying it a little. It will essentially be the same, but I am adding a movement and slightly altering another to be harder. Should be fun!

    I really like doing a solid 15-20 minutes of jump rope every now and then. 3 minutes of normal followed immediately by a few minutes of one leg jump ropes really explodes your calves. I feel like doing some jump ropes now, actually! Now where's that damn rope!

    I was very dehydrated today. My workout suffered a little, as my energy level was very poor. I had a machine I had to fix today that took me four hours. I didn't drink all that time, but sweated balls. I hate it when that sh*t happens.

    Anyway, here's the workout:

    Push up:29, 22, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15=141 Next w/o: 150
    (supersetted with)

    Pull up: 12, 10, 8, 7, 7, 6, 6, 6=62 Next w/o: 70

    Freehand squats: 50, 35, 32, 30, 26= 173 Next w/o:180
    (supersetted with)

    Back extensions: 15, 10, 13, 14, 14=66 Next w/o: 70

    Wrestler's Bridge: 0:51 (went way down) Next w/o: still 1:20

    Leg Raise: 22, 16, 16, 15, 12= 81 Next w/o: 90

    Front Bridge: 1:00 Next w/o: 1:10

    Fingertip plank: 0:30 Next w/o: 0:35
    (a much harder version of the regular plank...very hard!)

    Roll outs (from knees): 10, 8, 6= 24 Next w/o: 35
    (a very difficult core exercise, will increase the sets slowly)

    Gorilla Hold: 1:00 Next w/o: still 1:20
    (this hold went down, but this w/o had already thrashed me!)



    Most things still went up, but damn am I tired...this stuff is athletic!

    Lookin' good, man. I work outside and I HATE when I run out of water. I carry a gallon jug with me but sometimes I'll be weedwacking for 5-6 hour intervals and run out. **** gets rough when I run out of H2O!

    Looking good thrall. I'd say that was a great workout for being a little dehydrated. That's just a sick routine.

    Workouts are going well. As for the band I do enjoy me a bit of insane death metal but my preference is a mixture of "clean" and well the wacked out deep screams. You have any tracks mixing the 2 methods?

    Yes, we have two songs like that off the new cd, but none available on the net. We also have a completely clean vocal project, and it is a very tripped out, fun project for me to be involved with. We will be recording that in September. The new Beyond Fatal album "Universal, Diabolical" should be released some time around then I think (on Compton Records).

    Alright, I have been feeling under the weather lately due to sleep difficulties. I just haven't been getting much, and that jacks up my routines and energy. I have rested FOUR DAYS, which is far more than I intended. Frankly, I meant to workout yesterday, but various complications with life in general kept me out of the gym.

    I am starting with bodyweight this week, because it takes the most out of me. I actually started doing my weights a few days ago, got my first set of 310 DL no problem, but felt like hell and left the gym. I rarely do that, but man, I have not had any energy lately. I just need to SLEEP. Luckily, last night was better.

    Here was todays routine:

    Push up:31, 23, 17, 17, 16, 16,15, 15=150 Next w/o: 160
    (supersetted with)

    Pull up: 14, 10, 9, 7, 8, 7, 6, 7=68(close!!) Next w/o:still 70

    Wrestler's Bridge: 1:25 Next w/o: 1:30

    Freehand squat: 50, 40, 35, 30, 25:180( ) Next w/o: 190
    (supersetted with)

    Back Extension: 16, 11, 10, 15, 10=62 (slightly down, but the squats made up for it) Next w/o: still 70

    Leg Raise: 24, 18, 13, 13, 13=81 Next w/o: still 90

    Front Bridge: 1:10 Next w/o: 1:15

    Gorilla Hold: 1:20 Next w/o:1:25

    Roll outs: 12, 3, n/a= 15 (I was feeling completely toasted at this point, so I skipped the fingertip plank)


    Well, I can say that the increase in reps, especially with the freehand squats (nearly 200 soon) has caused a lot of metabolic waste buildup. I can FEEL how tired I am pretty intensely. Really, I feel like a 23 year old man shouldn't be having this issue quite yet, but it is a lot of work. Perhaps a 3 day rotation, still alternating bodyweight with weights? I definitely need to move to some harder exercises soon, and I fear I won't be able to fit it all in. The progression seems natural to me.

    I'm going to think about it some more, but for now we have weights tomorrow. Should be light weight.

    No, I have a 9-5 fixing copiers at various businesses in the quad-state area. It is frustrating, mentally taxing work sometimes, but not physically demanding. Actually, I do find all the driving to be tiring mentally, but thats about it. I run all over the friggin' place getting parts and then putting them in machines made mostly of plastic that run like turtles. <sigh> Oh, the mediocrity...

    I just have low energy right now because I cannot seem to get enough rest. I always wake up at the 6 1/2-7 hour mark. I'm just never rested, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I also have a new gf, which takes up a lot of energy and sleepy-bye time. Perhaps I just need to find a way to sedate her...

    More soon, going to the gym within the next few hours...

    I felt really strong today. I think that rest time was necessary for my CNS, because I lifted like a champ today (at least, by my present personal standards).

    Dead Lift: 310 x 5, 280 x 5, 250 x 5 Next w/o: 315

    Side Press: 70 x 5, 65 x 5, 57 x 5 Next w/o: 72


    I felt like this weight was light (and it is), and I could never lift the 70 lbs. with my left arm 5 times before. I am getting alot better at the side press. Eventually, when it gets really heavy, I think I will probably turn that lift into more of a bent press. As it stands, it is working well for me. I feel solid and rooted with both of these lifts, and I am slowly learning that "rooting" your whole body in the ground is where power starts.

    I am starting to get to the point where I will soon be breaking new personal ground on the side press. The most I ever got on dead lift was 350 x 3, and that was when I slightly tweaked my lower back. I was lifting at a new gym, and with admittedly poor form (though I didn't know it then). That is why I started with such light weight, to work back to a heavy weight slowly. It is working well, my form is WAY better, and my pain is gone. I have never tried 315 x 5, just for 3, but it won't be hard for me at this rate. Can't wait to hit those HEAVY weights!

    Solid workout! Nice DL numbers, too, whether you think so or not! Now get that 315x5!

    LOL! I hear ya, bro! My lady takes up usually 3-4 hours PER DAY. It drives me crazy sometimes, but I love her to death and she hates being apart so it's all good.

    ALRIGHT...here's how time has passed...

    July 4: Rest (gym was closed)

    July 5: Here's the bodyweight workout (some of my stuff actually went down, but I will tell you why in a minute)

    Push ups:33, 23, 15, 15, 15, 15, 13, 14=143 Next w/o:160
    (supersetted with)

    Pull ups:12, 9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 7, 4=63 Next w/o:70

    Wrestler's Bridge: 1:20 Next w/o: 1:30

    Freehand squats: 50, 42, 36, 32, 26=186 Next w/o: 190
    (supersetted with)

    Back Extensions:13, 5, 11, 14, n/a=43 (WAY DOWN, but those squats actually work my lower back a lot) Next w/o: 70

    Front Bridge: 1:15 Next w/o: 1:20

    Leg Raises: 25, 19, 14, 14, 15=87 Next w/o: 90

    Gorilla Hold: 0:55 (yeesh) Next w/o: 1:25

    Roll outs: 8, 8, 4=20 Next w/o: 25


    Some minor improvements, but the movements felt harder today. Why, I asked myself, why? Then, I weighed myself. I now weigh 185.6 lbs., a new PR for me. I have NEVER weighed more than 184.5 lbs. Interesting that I have gained weight from doing bodyweight movements. I think my new weight may affect the difficulty of some of my movements. It is something I will overcome, and with plenty of strength to show for it.

    It doesn't hurt that stim free Ragnarok was by my side to do it either! Thank you MST for the use of this product, I am doing better than ever in the gym!

    July 6: Rest due to reasons mentioned prior in this thread

    I'm getting ready to hit the gym in about an hour for weights. Will post full update post workout.

    Well, to tell the truth, I don't count like a lot of you guys do. I really didn't have a goal of weight gain, but I always eat plenty every 3-4 hours. I have been eating a lot just because the bodyweight workouts are demanding.

    Day 21:

    This post is for the workout I did on July 7 (yesterday). It went as follows:

    Dead Lift: 315 x 5, 285 x 5, 255 x 5 Next w/o: 320

    Side Press: 72 x 5 (felt hard), 65 x 5, 60 x 5 Next w/o: Repeat


    I'm not moving up on the side press next time because it was pretty difficult for me today. The dead lift still felt comfortable, but the side press is definitely getting harder. One more go at 72, and then I'll move up to 75.

    I truthfully am not counting right now, either. I've been eating a lot of **** foods lately because I work outside and otherwise I can't keep anything on me.

    7/8/07: Rested (house sitting, must STOP resting so much)

    *DAY 23*

    7/9/07: Bodyweight workout was good, but REALLY tiring. Some dudes I know in the gym were actually talking sh*t about me while I was pumped. They were whispering "Roids" and staring. They were also criticising my training style. I only weighed 185.9 lbs. today, another personal record though. I was annoyed at first, but who cares? I have used only legal things, just like them. They were big 1-AD users, and they think they never used anything anabolic. Morons.

    Here's how good I looked today:

    Push ups: 33, 25, 20, 17, 18, 15, 15, 16=159(close!) next w/o:160 still
    (supersetted with)

    Pull ups: 13, 12, 9, 7, 8, 7, 7, 7=70 (yes!) next w/o: 75

    Wrestler's Bridge:1:38 Next w/o:1:45

    Freehand Squat: 50, 50, 40, 35, 30=205 ( ) Next w/o:210

    Leg Raise: 25, 23, 20, 14, 17=99 Next w/o:105
    (supersetted with)

    Back extensions: 15, 13, 13, 13, 14=68 Next w/o:70 still

    Front Bridge: 1:51 ( ) Next w/o:2:00

    Gorilla Hold: 1:13 (still low) Next w/o: 1:25


    Some of my stuff went WAY up (205 squats!) Other stuff wasn't quite as good. One thing is for sure. I am f*cking TIRED! I am going to separate this into two different workouts from now on. Sometimes it takes me 1:45 hr to complete this workout! That's a little long, and I want to add exercises, not keep cutting them.

    After tomorrow's weights, the split will look like this:

    Day 1:Bodyweight A
    Day 2:Weights
    Day 3:Bodyweight B
    Day 4:Rest

    I will repeat this continuously. I think this will work better for the volume I am doing now. We shall see.

    Progress so far with this supplement has been EXCELLENT. I have been taking it faithfully every day and have only good things to say about it. Good job MST!!
