  1. I had a freakyly realistic dream last night that my girl was cheating on me and laughed about when I caught her. I woke up and wanted to slap her so hard! Luckily when I woke up she was clung onto my arm smiling!

    Lucky for her! I can't imagine the smackfest that might have gone down if she was turned the other way hugging her pillow when you woke up

    lol - I hate those dreams that seem so real that when you wake up you feel like you actually experienced it. Like if you wronged somebody in your dream you can hardly look them in the eye the next day b/c you feel guilty....like you can even help what you dream...heh.

  4. Day 17 (Thursday's workout)
    Workout - Legs/Shoulders:
    Barbell Squat:
    14 @ 135
    12 @ 185
    11 @ 205 = -1 rep (wtf?)
    11 @ 225 = +2 reps
    8 @ 235 = +10lbs
    8 @ 235 = +1 rep +15lbs
    drop set immediately into dumbells held out front
    10 @ 50
    Military Press with Barbell:
    14 @ 95
    12 @ 125
    9 @ 135 = +1 rep
    9 @ 135 = +2 reps
    7 @ 135 = -2 reps +5lbs
    9 @ 130 = +1 rep
    drop set immediately 35 dumbells
    10 @ 35
    Good Morning:
    10 @ 70
    10 @ 70
    10 @ 70
    Upright Row:
    12 @ 75
    12 @ 80
    11 @ 80


    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: Now we're getting somewhere! I feel very tight and strong going into the workout. In fact just walking around normal I feel semi-pumped, but if I flex it is a very hard flex. Also as you can probably tell from a lot of my numbers, my beginning sets don't seem to be improving as much. However once I get into my workout, my later sets are crushing my original late sets. I have much more strength throughout the latter part of my workout that I did before.
    Notes: One of the biggest things I noticed during my past workout was my stamina and recovery time. I don't know how much can be attributed to IGF-2 and how much to BCAAs but my feeling is that the IGF-2 has a lot to do with this. For example during squat day when I'm done with a set I'm breathing heavy, can't catch my breath, and sometimes felt like my heart was going to pump out of my chest. During this session when I was done with a set I felt almost fully recovered with my cardio within about 30 seconds. Within this 30 seconds I was breathing normal and heart rate felt much better. At the end of my workout I was tired and sore but my cardio, stamina, and mental alertness were perfect.

    edit: In other words. This is my 3rd workout for legs while on IGF-2. I added 15 pounds and 1 rep to my final set. Beat that!

  5. Day 19 (Saturday)
    Workout - Back/Bis:
    Well I had to workout at a different gym on Saturday. Sadly I did not have my notebook or anything along. I'm not going to put specifics on lifts here b/c 1) I can't remember exactly and 2) I used slightly different weights/machines and exercises so it would be hard to compare.

    That being said, the workout was very good. Again I had great stamina and felt like I could lift forever and recover very quickly between sets.

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: Stamina is up. I have a pretty good overall feeling of being content and happy.
    Notes: I do seem to still be losing weight but gaining strength. I really do not want to lose weight per se so I'm going to try and increase my calories for each day. My goal is to do this without increasing junk food though, which of course is tough.

  6. Day 20 (Sunday)
    Workout - Cardio:
    2 hour, approximately 7 1/2 mile walk/hike through the area.

    Diet: A little messed up b/c of a weekend of course. I tend to eat large meals on weekends. I also drank too much on Saturday so on my Sunday hike I sweat like Dom Deluise having a threeway with Rosie O'Donnel and a 10 pound piece of honey-cured ham.
    Overall Feeling: I haven't been doing a ton of cardio prior to IGF-2, but from what I was doing I can honestly say that I believe IGF-2 is helping with my cardio as well.
    Notes: I wouldn't say I'm pumped like I'm on the juice or anything. But I feel like I look more toned in a resting state and more ripped (but not larger really) when I flex. In the past I've mentioned my weird dreams....you know what's more boring than actually flying on an airplane? Dreaming that you are waiting in line and then flying on an airplane for 2 hours!

  7. Interesting report on the cardio. I will be starting my IGF-2 at the end of next week and plan on having two days of cardio with four days of weightlifting.

    Thanks for checking out the log and posting a reply by the way. And yes, as far as cardio goes, it's not like I have been timing my sessions or am trying to hit a certain goal (like a 5 minute mile, or running a 10k nonstop), but I just feel that overall I have much better lung and heart capacity and endurance when lifting and walking/hiking. I haven't really noticed other people saying this in their IGF-2 logs but maybe they didn't feel it, or maybe they didn't include it in their logs, I'm not sure. It is a pleasant affect that I really didn't figure on at all. I went into this log thinking "I'm going to just get huge", but in reality I'm leaning out more than gaining weight, which is of course partially due to my diet, but my diet has not changed......

  9. Day 21 (Monday)
    Workout - Chest/Tris:
    Bench Press:
    12 @ 185 = 0
    9 @ 225 = +2 reps
    8 @ 225 = +3 reps
    7 @ 225 = +2 reps
    10 @ 210 = +2 reps
    10 @ 210 = +2 reps +5lbs
    12 @ 185 = +2 reps
    Incline Flys - Dumbell:
    12 @ 50 = +5lbs
    10 @ 50 = -2 reps +5lbs
    10 @ 50 = +5lbs
    Tricep Pushdown:
    10 @ 100
    11 @ 100
    9 @ 100
    Single OverHead Tricep Dumbell:
    11 @ 20
    11 @ 20
    Pushups:
    16
    14

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: Again, I feel very good mentally and physically. Today I got a little frustrated b/c mentally I was ready to push more but I couldn't will my body to do it. I don't know if a 7.5 mile hike took a lot of energy out of me or not. Also, my shoulder was a lot more sore than normal for some reason. That being said I got a CRAZY pump. When I went to the locker to change, my chest, shoulders, and arms were huge and very full looking.
    Notes: Weight is maintaing, which is a good thing for me.
  10. Wink


    I'm reading more and more on IGF-2 and gettin' a little worried about the increased libido and wood. I work in a Fortune 100 company and haven't worn underwear in almost 12 years. Thank goodness I have my age and co-workers that are mostly men to keep things in check!

    lol - HHHTheGame, a.k.a. Mr. Commando. I have noticed some increase in libido, but for me at least, I can control it. It's not like I walk around with wood all day and try to dry hump the 300 lb secretary while she dines on a bucket of crispy KFC chicken. But if I see a sexy picture or think of a sexy woman, I get a little more excited than usual and think "man, I wish I was getting laid now instead of here at work".

  12. ROTF!!! hehehehehehe I have one of those too. I'll just keep wandering over by her all day long to keep me in check.

  13. Yeah, it's not like a viagra pill.....it's just when I see good looking women....I can't help myself from staring and getting hard. I usually have self-control....but not this past month.



  14. A good side effect. I call it, "sexual enabling".

  15. Day 23 (yesterday's workout)
    Workout - Legs/Shoulders:
    Barbell Squat:
    14 @ 135
    12 @ 185
    11 @ 225 = -1 rep +20lbs
    11 @ 225 = +2 reps
    9 @ 235 = +1 rep +10lbs
    8 @ 235 = +1 rep +15lbs
    drop set immediately into
    11 @ 100
    Military Press with Barbell:
    14 @ 95
    12 @ 125
    10 @ 135 = +2 reps
    10 @ 135 = +3 reps
    7 @ 135 = -1 rep +5lbs
    drop set immediately into
    11 @ 35 dumbells
    Shrugs:
    12 @ 70s = -2 reps +10lbs
    12 @ 70s = -2 reps +10lbs
    Upright Row - Barbell:
    12 @ 80
    11 @ 85 = +5lbs
    Good Morning:
    12 @ 70 = +2 reps
    10 @ 75 = +5lbs
    10 @ 75 = +5lbs


    Diet: Normal - but substituted WMS instead of malto/dex for PWO.
    Overall Feeling: Squats are going through the roof (for me at least). When you consider I'm doing 15 more pounds and 1 more rep than 20 days ago, that aint bad at all. The velcro belt that I use at the gym won't stay tight though - Also my Military press isn't showing an explosion but in reality the reps feel much better and tighter now. I feel good muscle contraction and pump when pressing and no looseness in my joints.
    Notes: I just got some bulk cissus in to help with my shoulder, we'll see if it does anything. I think as far as helping to sleep I notice that if I sleep until my body says it's time to get up 7-8 hours, I feel great during the day, better than normal. However, if I don't quite get enough sleep or get interrupted (say 6-7 hours), I feel more tired than when I was not on IGF-2. My theory is that b/c IGF-2 helps with a deep sleep and therefore if I allow my body to come out naturally I'm great, but if I interrupt it, it takes me a few hours to really get going for the day....just my theory though

  16. Good job Ninja. Same holds true from the comment I made earlier about our strength differences with your last workout... I'd warm up with your heavy set of squats but NO WAY I could do an upright row with 80 pounds or a barbell press with 135. I guess we can both deal with that since we have PERFECT physiques

    Maybe at the end of your log you could compare pump, endurance, hardness, strength increase to other supps that you have tried in the past.

    Btw, cap the cissus cause it'll make you barf your brains out otherwise. You get the 5% or the 10%? Both were effective for me but obviously moreso with the 10%. I've also tried a 20% cissus and it was no different than the 10% FWIW.

  17. nice log you got going here ninja! Ive been snooping around it from time to time but never got to actually posting :P

  18. Thanks for the feedback fellas. I like to include some detail on my workout so people can a) get more info into how I'm working and and using the product and b) critique my workout and/or offer suggestions if they wish.

    I also like to include that little summary for those people who don't have the time to read or who don't care about every lift/rep I'm doing.

    Plus I'm keeping a running tab on the +reps and +lbs since the beginning lifts. I find this useful for me and maybe other people like it too.

  19. Ninja runs him a good log.... mmmmkay.....

    always reminds me of that one episode:
    drugs...drugs are bad mmmmkay. You shouldn't do drugs. If you do them, you're bad, because drugs are bad mmmkay. It's a bad thing to do drugs, so don't be bad by doing drugs, mmmkay, that'd be bad. Well, unless the drugs are supplments. Then they are good, mmmkay. (ok, I added the last part)

    thanks by the way. I'm trying to stay on top of it and be honest.

  21. Day 24
    Workout - Back/Bis:
    Bent Over Barbell Row:

    Bent over Barbell Row:
    10 @ 135
    10 @ 135 = +2 reps
    10 @ 140 = +5lbs
    10 @ 140 = +5lbs
    10 @ 140 = +1 rep +5lbs
    T-Bar Row (actually the barbell stuffed into the corner with weights on one end):
    12 @ 70
    11 @ 80
    9 @ 80
    10 @ 80
    10 @ 80
    Bicep Barbell (with large 45lb bar)
    12 @ 80 = +2 reps
    10 @ 80 = +1 rep
    9 @ 80 = +1 rep
    Seated Dumbell Hammer:
    10 @ 35 = -2 reps +5lbs
    11 @ 35 = +5lbs
    Reverse Forum Curl (behind the back with large 45lb bar):
    16 @ 90 = +2 reps -5lbs
    14 @ 100 = +1 rep +5lbs

    Diet: Normal (pizza and a hotdog for lunch..... )
    Overall Feeling: I feel great. I know I said it before but I honestly can't believe the recovery and stamina I am feeling. I don't know if I need to work harder or what but I didn't sweat a terrible lot and about 1 minute after the workout I just pack up and walked up breathing through my nose like I just got up from my desk. That is probably the biggest difference is that I don't feel like I'm going to die or can't catch my breath between sets or after a workout. Instead of feeling worn out like I need a nap I feel like I should go out and do more
    Notes: Ok, I don't know why I didn't find this exercise before. But the T-Bar row with the barbell in the corner is awesome! I can usually feel good workout with pulldown and bentover but I always feel like my biceps and grip get more of a workout. This exercise was a total pump on my lats, which is exactly where I'm trying to grow some to give me that wider, V, look.


    I took a few pics after my workout. Horrible quality from my cell phone I know but just thought I'd toss them in at the famous 24 day mark (which has absolutely no significance )

    Thanks man! Everything is going great here. I'm going to really try and put some size and width on my back. I used to always worry about chest and never missed chest day b/c of that famous question (how much do you bench?). Well I decided now I want to focus more on back and squats/hammies.

    To those reading, this week is going to be a little messed up. I'm gone Friday-Sunday doing a 17 mile hike to Yosemite on Saturday. I am probably going to skip leg workout this week, or maybe do something light to keep my legs loose.

  24. Day 27 (Sunday)
    Workout - Cardio:
    1 hour, approximately 3 mile walk/hike through the area.

    Diet: Again my weekend diet is always different b/c of when I get up, if I'm gone more, etc. Overall I believe I get about the same number of calories, I just get a few more from alcohol sometimes and I get my calories in larger chunks instead of 6-7 small ones.
    Overall Feeling: Good mood. Good focus. Good energy!
    Notes: Gotta get training for my big hike coming up. Slept great and feel refreshed today.

  25. Sounds like a fun hike man! You do that kind of distance before?

  26. Quote Originally Posted by Lanbane View Post

    Nope, not even close...lol. I did 7-8 miles 2 weeks ago and thought I gave myself plantar faciitis because of it. I have some buddies that want to do it, I"m a moron and agreed to go along. I'm in good muscular shape but my cardio is severly lacking. I actually got some samples of poseidon and swell that should help. I'll probably add some BCAA as well. I may be dead on Monday

  27. Day 29
    Workout - Chest + Legs (light day):
    Bench Press:
    12 @ 185
    9 @ 225 = +2 reps
    8 @ 230 = +3 reps +5lbs
    6 @ 230 = +1 rep +5lbs
    10 @ 210 = +2 reps
    8 @ 210 = +5lbs
    13 @ 185 = +3 reps
    Overhead Dumbell (laying on a bench - first time I tried it):
    12 @ 40
    10 @ 45
    Incline Flys - Dumbell:
    14 @ 50
    drop immediately to
    9 @ 25s
    Good Mornings:
    12 @ 70
    12 @ 70
    12 @ 70
    Squats:
    12 @ 185
    12 @ 185
    12 @ 185
    12 @ 185

    Diet: I don't think I ate enough food for lunch.
    Overall Feeling: Didn't feel very explosive in the gym today. I didn't get a chance to have a preworkout malto/WMS/BCAA that I sometimes do. I don't know if that had something to do with it. I was however able to hit 8 reps @ 230lbs! I'd have to go back and check but that is likely a PR for me. I may have got close when I was on heavy dose of creatine but I lose so much power when I go off creatine. Also even on creatine I never hit 230, 8 times.
    Notes: I feel tired after today's workout. I'm not sure why. Probably combining heavy chest with legs (even though they were 80% weight sets for me) took a lot out of me. I'm chillin' with my WMS + BCAA right now. Then eating my banana and Whey.

  28. Day 30
    Workout - Back: (yesterday's workout)
    Pull Down (don't know if the numbers are pounds but it is just the number I use on the stack):
    12 @ 120
    10 @ 140 = +2 reps
    9 @ 140 = +1 reps
    10 @ 140 = +3 reps
    9 @ 140 = + 2 reps
    T-Bar Row (actually the barbell stuffed into the corner with weights on one end):
    11 @ 80 = -1 rep +10lbs
    11 @ 80 = 0
    9 @ 85 = +5lbs
    10 @ 85 = +5lbs
    10 @ 85 = +5lbs

    Diet: Normal - A nice 900 calorie burrito for lunch...mmmm
    Overall Feeling: I only had 30 minutes for my workout b/c of previous engagements. However I wish it was longer. I felt very good in the gym today. Got a nice pump in my back (which is very hard for me to do for some reason...maybe I use to much arm in general). The lifts are going up in either reps or weight slowly but steadily.
    Notes: I didn't get much sleep the night before so I was dragging part of the day. However, once I got in the gym I was good to go. Sleep, libido, and hardness of muscles overall feel very good on a regular basis now.

  29. Day 31
    Workout - Shoulders/Arms:
    Military Press with Dumbells:
    12 @ 50s
    12 @ 50s
    12 @ 50s
    12 @ 50s
    Bicep Dumbell:
    8 @ 45s
    8 @ 50s
    7 @ 50s
    6 @ 50s
    immediately dropped to:
    9 @ 25s
    Tricep Pushdown:
    12 @ 100
    10 @ 115
    8 @ 120
    8 @ 120
    immediately dropped to:
    12 @ 70

    Diet: Normal - I like to eat a banana before workout now.
    Overall Feeling: I haven't been getting good sleep, but that is not the fault of IGF-2. My sleep has been getting interrupted by various crap outside of my control. IGF-2 has actually helped me get back to sleep when woken up though. Bicep strength was through the roof today. 8 reps at 50 pound dumbells is pretty good for me. I even focused on not swinging or arching my back. Triceps also felt nice. Even after this short workout my arms were exploding!
    Notes: Yes, I went easy on lifting this week, especially shoulders and legs. I didn't want to burn out my legs before Saturday. I also didn't want sore shoulders if I'm going to have a 20lb pack on it all day tomorrow. I'll be ready to lift them all heavy again next week, if I'm able to walk

  30. While the log is great, the avy is in a class of it's own. lol
