    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".

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Day 33 (Saturday's hike)
    Workout - Cardio:
    7 hour, approximately 10 mile hike part way up Yosemite's Half Dome trail (including mist trail, and nevada falls).

    Diet: All over the charts here. Friday nite we hit the buffet and I loaded up on chicken and roasted red potatoes as well as some mac and cheese. Most of saturday was gatorade, dried fruit with nuts, peanut butter and jelly sandwhichs and water with Poseidon in it. At night to celebrate we hit the pizza parlor and beer bar
    Overall Feeling: I don't know how much to attribute to adreniline or IGF-2 but I would have thought during a hike that strenuous that I'd be wearing out during the day. However I felt pretty good the whole time. I feel fine now as well. I have no way to compare this hike pre IGF-2 but I have to believe it helped my stamina and recovery times.
    Notes: What was supposed to be a 17 mile round trip hike with elevation gain of around 4000 feet turned into a 10 mile hike with elevation gain of 2300 feet.

    Bad news - We didn't make it to the top b/c of weather. About 3/4 of the way up we ran into a rain/hail storm. I was wearing shorts, t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt, nice socks and boots. Not prepared to say the least but I wasn't cold (due to my body making heat while hiking) until we stopped for 10 or more minutes, or until it started pouring rain. Also there was about 6-8 inches of snow on top and we heard a little thunder. Standing on the highest point of granite and holding onto metal cables in the snow while lightning was going on didn't seem the smartest thing to do at the time .

    Good news - We got in about 10 miles round trip. Elevation went from 4500 feet to about 6800 feet. It was absolutely awesome scenery. At some points we were going up a "staircase" of granite with each step anywhere from 8 inches to 16 inches tall to climb up. Some places were roughly 4-5 feet wide with an edge you REALLY would not want to fall over unless you like free falling.

    Great news - I feel fine today. Feet, calves, and quads are a little stiff but overall not bad. I did not get overly tired during the hike despite not being in great cardio shape. I have no doubt that the IGF-2 cycle I am on and the Poseidon that I was drinking during the day helped me out quite a bit. I was surprised how my body was able to handle it actually. Now I'm hooked and have to wait until next spring to finish it off (after the snow melts).

    Day 36
    Workout - Chest/Tris:
    Bench Press:
    12 @ 185
    8 @ 225 = +1 rep
    7 @ 230 = +2 reps +5 lbs
    7 @ 230 = +2 reps +5 lbs
    9 @ 210 = +1 rep
    7 @ 210 = -1 rep +5 lbs
    13 @ 185 = +3 reps
    Dumbell Pullover:
    11 @ 45 = -1 rep +5 lbs
    10 @ 45
    Incline Flys - Dumbell:
    12 @ 50 = +5 lbs
    12 @ 50 = +5 lbs
    Tricep Pushdown:
    8 @ 110 = -2 reps +10lbs
    12 @ 105 = +1 rep +5lbs
    10 @ 105 = +1 rep +5lbs
    Single Overhead Tricep Dumbell:
    12 @ 20 = +4 reps
    11 @ 20 = +1 rep
    Pushups:
    18 = +5 reps
    14 = +4 reps

    Diet: Normal - didn't get to eat much before workout though.
    Overall Feeling: Today was one of those days that tests your mental toughness. I didn't feel like working out as I feel tired, rundown, and have a sore throat. However I can't let AppNut (and all my fans ) down so I pressed on and hit the gym. My bench suffered. Obviously I'm up from when I started but I went down from last week. The good news is that about 25 minutes into my workout my body woke up and went into aggressive mode! My tricep and incline fly work was great as well as extra pushups at the end.
    Notes: I'm hoping I feel better tomorrow as I"m going to try and get some extra sleep tonight, at least a good 8 hours. Another note, I looked HUGE (by my standards anyway) and pretty cut after the chest and tricep workout. I've been bigger but that's only when I'm retaining creatine water so I don't look as cut in my opinion.

    That hike sounds awesome Ninja. Picturing myself on the "steps" that close to a free fall seriously just triggered a chill type feeling. Me no likey heights where edges are nearby.

    Day 37 (yesterday's workout)
    Workout - Legs/Shoulders:
    Barbell Squat:
    14 @ 135
    12 @ 185
    12 @ 225 = +20lbs
    10 @ 235 = +1 rep +10lbs
    10 @ 235 = +2 reps +10lbs
    9 @ 235 = +2 reps +15lbs
    drop set immediately into
    3 @ 100 = -7 reps....lol must have been tired
    Military Press with Barbell:
    14 @ 95
    12 @ 125
    10 @ 135 = +2 reps
    10 @ 135 = +3 reps
    9 @ 135 = +1 rep +5lbs
    drop set immediately into
    12 @ 35 dumbells = +3 reps
    Upright Row - Barbell:
    12 @ 85 = +10 lbs
    12 @ 85 = +5 lbs
    11 @ 85 = +5 lbs
    immediately drop into Shrugs:
    12 @ 50s
    12 @ 50s
    12 @ 50s
    Good Morning:
    12 @ 70 = +2 reps
    11 @ 75 = +1 rep +5lbs
    12 @ 75 = +2 reps +5lbs


    Diet: Missed my morning snack at 10am - but had a nice lunch of meaty pizza to make up for it.
    Overall Feeling: I thought my squats might suffer from my long hike but in reality my legs recovered very nicely. I was again able to make gains in squats, which is awesome. It goes up every week. I'm having some problems with Military press though. In a little more than a month I've only managed to put up a few more reps per set. I'm not sure what to do here, possibly move Military further away from Chest/Tricep day might help.
    I also felt sort of sick yesterday but was able to push through. I felt good lifting though, just a nagging headache and runny nose.
    Notes: Today (Thursday) I feel like crap though. It feels like I have a fever. I have a headache and a little bit of body aches. I'll probably take today off of lifting as I was planning to do back workout and I want all my energy and focus for that. I'm still getting good pumps and a leaner feeling. I have about 8-10 days of IGF-2 left so I hope to tear it up in the next week and a half if I can kick this cold.

    It was pretty fun indeed. Backpacking and hicking is something I never really go into before but something I will do in the future for sure. I'm not scared of heights really but I'm kind of a hands guy, where I feel more comfortable if I have something to hold. I'm much more confident in my hand and upper body than my legs, knees, and feet . Next spring I will conquer the top though. Now I have some time to train at least, to make it more enjoyable and not feel dead tired.

    Day 38 (Friday's workout)
    Workout - Back:
    Bent over Barbell Row:
    12 @ 135 = +2 reps
    12 @ 140 = +4 reps + 5 lbs
    10 @ 145 = +10lbs
    10 @ 145 = +10lbs
    9 @ 145 = +10lbs
    T-Bar Row (actually the barbell stuffed into the corner with weights on one end):
    12 @ 80 = +10lbs
    10 @ 85 = -1 rep +5lbs
    10 @ 85 = +1 rep +5lbs
    11 @ 85 = +1 rep +5lbs
    10 @ 80 = +5lbs

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: I'm fighting this head cold going around. I don't feel to great and the lung capacity is suffering. That being said, my workout still went great. I don't feel as good after workout but during the workout I was focused and felt very strong muscular-wise.
    Notes: Hopefully I can kick this head cold. - I'm liking the overall affects of IGF-2 still. A good lean feel. I think a change in diet would really affect it as well. I think this stuff would work for a bulk or a cut quite well.

    you don't have to lie to everyone else - actually I hear it's going around. I think it's just the start of the school year where everyone is exchanging germs and bringing it to the workplace or out in public or something, who knows? I feel pretty good today though. A little shallow in the lung capacity department but overall much better than last week. Hope you are feeling better as well.

    Day 41 (Sunday's workout)
    Workout - Biceps / Calves / Abs:

    Well I normally have my notebook at my work gym. Since today is Sunday I didn't have my notebook when I went to my gym.

    Biceps:
    Feeling very strong again. Dumbell curling 50s if I do them on their own day, 45s if I combine with back day.

    Calves:
    It's hard for me to actually see increase in the size, but the tightness and pump feels pretty good

    Abs:
    I detest doing abs, which is why you rarely see it in my workout log. I don't do them enough on their own for IGF-2 to really make a difference in my opinion.

    Diet: Normal "weekend" diet consisting of larger meals and usually some alcohol at some point
    Overall Feeling: Head cold still there a little but it is going away. Felt good and strong.
    Notes: Got some good sleep over the weekend and felt much better and refreshed ready to rip up some weights this week.

    Day 43
    Workout - Chest/Tris:
    Bench Press:
    12 @ 185
    8 @ 225 = +1 rep
    5 @ 235 = +10 lbs
    5 @ 235 = +10 lbs
    10 @ 210 = +2 reps
    8 @ 210 = +5 lbs
    12 @ 185 = +2 reps
    Incline Flys - Dumbell:
    13 @ 55 = +1 rep +10 lbs
    12 @ 55 = +10 lbs
    10 @ 55 = +10 lbs
    Skull Crushers / Narrow Grip Press (superset):
    10/12 @ 35s = +1rep/+4reps +10lbs
    9/8 @ 35s = 0reps/-1rep +10 lbs
    8/6 @ 35s = +1rep/-1rep +10 lbs
    OverHead Tricep Dumbell:
    11 @ 60 = -1rep +10 lbs
    11 @ 60 = -1rep +10 lbs
    Pushups (ok, I was dead tired :
    15 = +2
    13 = +3

    Diet: Normal. Very good today actually.
    Overall Feeling: Felt great today. I've been sleeping great and have been in a good mood. The dreams that I had when I first started aren't as noticable but I'm sleeping like a baby and waking up refreshed (as long as I get 7+ hours).
    Notes: This is probably my last chest workout while on IGF-2. I'll include more in my summary, but I'm pretty excited about the gains. I just hope I don't lose any when I go off this product. I notice 0 negative side effects and again, my recovery time cardio-wise is far better than when I'm off IGF-2

    Day 44
    Workout - Back/Bis:
    Pull Down (don't know if the numbers are pounds but it is just the number I use on the stack):
    12 @ 120
    11 @ 140 = +3 reps
    8 @ 145 = +5 lbs
    7 @ 150 = +10 lbs
    7 @ 150 = +10 lbs
    16 @ 100
    Bent over Barbell Row:
    10 @ 135 = +2 reps
    10 @ 145 = +10 lbs
    9 @ 145 = -1 rep +10 lbs
    10 @ 145 = +10 lbs
    9 @ 145 = +10 lbs
    Bicep Barbell (with large 45lb bar)
    11 @ 85 = +1 rep +5 lbs
    9 @ 90 = +10 lbs
    7 @ 90 = -1 rep +10 lbs
    Alternating Seated Dumbell Hammer:
    10 @ 35 = -2 reps +5 lbs
    9 @ 35 = -2 reps +5 lbs
    Reverse Forum Curl (behind the back with large 45lb bar):
    14 @ 105 = +10 lbs
    11 @ 105 = -2 reps +10 lbs

    Diet: Normal - Had probably a 1000 calorie lunch of chinese food....mmm tasty.
    Overall Feeling: WOW! - I'm not sure if there were roids in my chinese food, if MSG helps when lifting, or what but my lifts were off the chart today. I have a feeling this IGF-2 certainly doesn't hurt either . I've never done 150 on pulldowns at that number of reps before. Barbell curling 90 lbs almost 10 times with the big bar is also nice for me!
    Notes: Good (but not great) pumps. However I'm not concerned about the pump during workout per se as it usually goes away in an hour or less. I want strength and mass. My stength has gone up, my weight seems about the same...which would make sense b/c I'm on maintenance calories. I'll check my measurements as I wrap this log up.

    Awsome log man, well done sir! Man I know what your talking about with Chinese Food, I worked out after eating at Pick Up Sticks one time, and man my workout lasted forever. Could just be from the exsessive amount of calories though to keep me going through the workout, lol.

    Day 45
    Workout - Legs/Shoulders:
    Barbell Squat:
    14 @ 135
    12 @ 185
    12@ 220 = +15 lbs
    10 @ 235 = +1 rep +10lbs
    8 @ 235 = +10 lbs
    8 @ 235 = +1 rep +15 lbs
    drop set immediately into:
    3 @ 100 = had to stop early (hip flexor)
    Military Press with Barbell:
    14 @ 95
    12 @ 125
    8 @ 140 = +5 lbs
    7 @ 140 = +5 lbs
    8 @ 135 = +5 lbs
    drop set immediately into:
    12 @ 35 dumbells = +3 reps
    Single Calf Raise with Dumbell on shoulder:
    12 @ 60 = +10 lbs
    12 @ 55 = +5 lbs
    12 @ 55 = +5 lbs
    Seated Side Raise:
    11 @ 20 = +1 rep +2lbs
    10 @ 20 = +2lbs
    9 @ 20 = -1 rep +2 lbs

    Diet: Normal - Another nice large free lunch of various pastas and sauces
    Overall Feeling: Chest and Biceps are sore from the previous days but not horrible. Leg workout went quite good again. I think I did slightly better last time, but this workout was nothing to laugh at. My endurance and recovery was awesome. One slight problem was that on my last 2 sets I had a slight tweaked feeling in my left inner hip flexor area. It prevented me from doing my last burn-out set at 100. This is the first time I've got 140 up on military with those reps. It doesn't seem like much to add 5 pounds over 6-7 weeks but in reality if I could do that every 6-7 weeks I'd be adding 40 pounds a year.
    Notes: Recovery, attitude, and overall feeeling was once again very good. I have a good sense of well being and I feel pretty thick in my chest and shoulders but not heavy or saggy. Very tight feeling most of the time.

    Day 48

    This ends my heavy lifts and my dosing of IGF-2.

    I have like 12 pills left that I'll just take 6 on Monday and 6 on Tuesday but my official lifts are done. I'll get a writeup done ASAP.

    Note: I will still be posting here though so that people can following that post IGF-2 era of TheNinja - I want to see what % of the gains I keep when going off.

    Note #2: I'm taking this week to lift lighter weight, higher reps, VERY slow lifts and a lot of deep heavy stretches. This should prepare me for another big run starting next week.

    Great log man. You made good gains and yes I too am interested in seeing what happens in the time period following your cycle.
