    TheNinja's IGF-2 Log - updated with measurements and pics


    Age: 30
    Stats: 6'1" @ 186.5 lbs
    BodyFat: I estimated 14% bf (I really have no idea but from pictures posted on AM, people estimated 12-14%)
    Body Type: Ecto (66%) / Meso (33%) - very thin growing up but have forced myself to gain muscle
    Goals: Gain strength and size with minimal fat gain on a consistent basis
    Goals Specific for this product cycle: Gain strength and lean size and not lose it after I go off the cycle. When I cycle off creatine I lose a lot of gains and I hope this product does not have the same drawback. Because of this I will likely log (though not as frequently) for 2-3 weeks after I am done taking IGF-2 to see if I have dramatic strength loss or not.
    Medical issues: none
    Past Supplements: Very little experience other than multivitamin, creatine, whey protein, fish oils (1 recent 7 week cycle on Leviathan, light RPM use has been discontinued for the past 2 weeks to prep for the log).
    Current: Multi, Whey, omega3, BCAA, ZMA (on and off)
    Diet: In check for the most part. Try to eat clean all the time but I'm not super crazy about it. Realistically average about 2200 calories a day, but I have an office job
    Workout: Typically a 3 or 4 day split - chest/tris, back/bis, legs/shoulders, 4thday misc (more leg, abs, etc.)
    Cardio: Honestly, have been slacking for the past couple months but am getting back into the "couch to 5k plan". I might toss in some HIIT but I have to get my knees in shape first otherwise I get horrible knee tendon pain and shin splits.
    Other: I'm just a regular guy but with good intensity and a good diet. I don't like to mix too many things b/c I like to see how certain supps affect me by themselves so I know what to buy again. If I stack 6 things, how do I know which one actually is working? I hope to be like a test case of how a single supplement or two (plus the basics of protein, oils, multi) affects a normal person who lifts with very good intensity. I think this will be a good "real world" test for those people who are new to supps or for those who aren't looking to spend $300 a month to stack many items.
    Dosage split into 3 times a day: 8 pills - will upgrade to 9 pills if needed or agreed upon by the AN crew

    "Normal" Diet:
    Waking Up: 3 IGF-2
    Meal 1: 8oz skim milk, 1 scoop ON Whey, multi
    Meal 2: 1 whole wheat bagel with natural peanut butter
    Meal 3: Varies, but typically around 600 calories in a 40/40/20 split or as close as possible consisting of lean protein, whole grain, veggies.
    Pre Workout: 3 IGF-2 plus 6g BCAA's in crystal light
    Workout: Take 6g BCAA during workout
    Post Workout Meal 4: 20g dextrose, 20g maltodextrin, 30g ON whey, 1 banana
    Meal 5: Varies, but again typically around 600 calories in a 40/40/20 split or as close as possible consisting of lean protein, whole grain, veggies.
    1 hour before bed: 2 IGF-2
    Before sleeping: 8oz skin milk, 1 scoop ON Whey, 2g fish oils

    Initial measurements - as close as I could get with a string and a tape measure :
    Neck - 15.125
    Shoulders - 50.75
    Chest (inside shoulders) - 42.5
    Bicep R/L - 16.75/16.5
    Waist/Abs Flabby/Flexed (not "sucked in" though) - 35.25/34
    Hip/Glutes - 39.5
    Thigh R/L - 23.5/23.75
    Calf R/L - 15.5/15.625

    Pictures on Day 1 - Yes I flexed - I figure as long as I do the same pose for my after pics, it is fair

    Is there anything else I should specifically add or remove from the format I am using? I forsee more things in "overall feeling" and "notes" in later weeks though.

    You're fine bro..... just let us know what you think basically.... anything you attribute to the product, any increases or decreases that we should recognize as significant, etc. Good or bad.

    Day 6
    Workout - Cardio (HIIT) + Abs:

    Diet: Normal - although my weekends are always less structured than weekdays.
    Overall Feeling: Again I feel like I am getting good sleep. But even moreso I feel very alert and energetic during the day. I don't know if this has anything to do with the IGF-2 or not, but I definitely notice something different.
    Notes: Don't notice the hunger/thirst as much any more. Also the weight seems to be maintaining now.

    Good info. I think you'll notice the alertness as a huge plus in the long run. Increased REM sleep (increased GH release)from IGF-2 lends well to increased energy throughout the day,w ithout the use of stims.

    Day 8
    Workout - Chest (didn't have much time):
    Bench Press:
    12 @ 185 = 0
    7 @ 225 = 0
    6 @ 225 = +1 rep
    6 @ 225 = +1 rep
    9 @ 210 = +1 rep
    8 @ 210 = +5lbs
    9 @ 185 = -1 rep
    Incline Flys - Dumbell:
    12 @ 47 = +2lbs
    12 @ 47 = +2lbs
    10 @ 47 = +2lbs
    Pushups (more energy b/c triceps were fresh :
    16 = +3 reps
    17 = +7 reps

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: I honestly can't say that I felt more powerful during the workout, but about 20 minutes into it I got a decent pump. By the end, I had a pretty good pump going throughout my chest, shoulders, and even arms. It isn't as full or thick as a pump on creatine for me, but it looks like a leaner more toned pump.
    Notes: Slept like a rock last night. I seem to have more vivid dreams too....weird huh?

    Day 9
    Workout - Back:
    Pull Down (don't know if the numbers are pounds but it is just the number I use on the stack):
    12 @ 120 = 0
    10 @ 140 = +2 reps
    8 @ 140 = 0
    8 @ 140 = +1 rep
    7 @ 140 = 0
    18 @ 100 = +2 reps
    Bent over Barbell Row:
    10 @ 135 = 0
    10 @ 135 = 0
    11 @ 135 = +1 rep
    12 @ 135 = +2 reps
    10 @ 135 = +1 rep
    Seated Reverse Fly:
    12 @ 10
    12 @ 10
    12 @ 10


    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: I was tired before my workout. I'm not sure why, but my sleep has been interrupted lately at about 6am instead of my normal 7:15. It took me a bit to get focused into my workout, which might explain why my reps went up on my rows.
    Notes: From other testers it appears that it will take 12-14 days before the effects really take note. I don't notice anything yet that makes me say "wow, this stuff is off the hook", but I did get a nice pump when working out and was able to get a few more reps. Also I went for a quick dip in the pool last night and felt pretty tight. Nothing major, but even 5-6 more reps each week makes a difference over a month's time.

    Day 10
    Workout - Legs:
    Barbell Squat:
    14 @ 135 = 0
    12 @ 185 = 0
    10 @ 205 = -2 yikes..but wait
    10 @ 225 = +1
    8 @ 225 = 0
    8 @ 225 = +1 rep +5lbs
    drop set immediately into 9 @ 100 = -1 rep
    Good Mornings:
    12 @ 30 on each side of bar
    9 @ 30 on each side of bar
    8 @ 30 on each side of bar
    Single Calf Raise holding Dumbell:
    12 @ 55 = +5lbs
    11 @ 55 = -1 rep +5lbs
    11 @ 55 = -1 rep +5lbs
    Single Leg "reverse" calf raise (shin?) :
    12
    12
    12

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: I could write something here to blow smoke up your bum but I won't. I feel pretty much the same as yesterday. I still sleep good, coming out of sleep is funny, espeically if I'm waken up quickly before I'm ready b/c I'm still have in my dream and take a few seconds to realize what is real and what isn't.
    Notes: The main thing I notice is that I seem to maintain strenght throughout the workout. My weights aren't shooting through the roof but I have better endurance once i actually get going.

    Day 11
    Workout - Shoulders:
    Military Press with Barbell:
    14 @ 95 = 0
    12 @ 125 = 0
    8 @ 135 = 0
    7 @ 135 = 0
    9 @ 130 = +1 rep
    8 @ 130 = +1 rep
    drop set immediately into 10 @ 35 dumbells = +1 rep
    Upright Row (had to keep light b/c of my left shoulder joint) :
    14 @ 65
    13 @ 65
    Shrugs:
    14 @ 60
    14 @ 60
    Seated Side Raise:
    11 @ 18 = +1 rep
    11 @ 18 = +1 rep



    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: Again, nothing really out of the norm. I'd say I do feel slighly lighter on my feet and thinner through my waist. I don't know if I lost any fat but I just feel overall a little leaner.
    Notes: I was a little disappointed that my military press didn't go up in weight or numbers, maybe I'm wearing out or I need more food. Maybe I just need more focus or just try harder? I need a day or two off though - long weekend coming up!

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: I felt more energenic and pumped in the gum today. Perhaps I just had a better attitude or perhaps the IGF-2 is kicking in but I felt quite strong and got a pretty good pump in my arms.
    Notes: Haha...crazy ass dream and I can remember a lot of it. It was seriously like a 1 hour dream. Libido is good but I wouldn't say crazy out of control or anything.

Time to take my last 3 IGF-2 pills for the day and see if I get any more whacky dreams. Stay classy AM.

Time to take my last 3 IGF-2 pills for the day and see if I get any more whacky dreams. Stay classy AM.
    I'm reading!

    Good luck bro! I would like to see what this product can do!

    I'll follow since we have very similar stats. Wt, measurements, body fat... all are pretty close and even the pics "resemble" a bit. Funny thing is, you're a bit stronger on chest and shoulders while I got ya on back and legs. Nice log.

    Day 14
    Workout - Cardio / Leg?:
    2 hour hike in the hills nearby. Good leg and lung/heart workout.

    Diet: A little messed up. I got enough calories but probably too much fat and and in 2 large meals instead of a bunch of smaller ones. Also a few mimosas at my brunch and a few beers when I grilled up my burgers....oh well, what is Labor Day for?
    Overall Feeling: Anytime when I'm working out it seems like I don't notice any difference until about 15 minutes into my workout/hike. After that I get my energy and just keep going. Considering I haven't hiked for quite some time I was pretty impressed with myself today.
    Notes: Starting to feel a nice lean pump, nothing crazy out of control though.

    Unrelated Note: We might try the half dome hike at Yosemite National Park. It is 17 miles round trip up to elevation of something like 9000 ft, starting around 5000 ft. We'd have to do it in one day b/c we can't get camping passes. I might die

    cool, thanks man. ya, my back and legs need work. I used to workout mainly chest and arms and neglect the other parts. Also, I'm just genetically built with very thin legs too. I think over time I can change it though my legs just have about 5 years of catching up to do on my upper body Also you must be pretty friggin awesome if your stats are close to mine, I mean we practically have the perfectly perportioned body.........ok j/k guys.

    Day 16
    Workout - Chest/Tris:
    Bench Press:
    12 @ 185 = 0
    8 @ 225 = +1 rep
    8 @ 225 = +3 reps
    7 @ 225 = +2 reps
    10 @ 210 = +2 reps
    8 @ 210 = +5lbs
    12 @ 185 = +2 reps
    Incline Flys - Dumbell:
    14 @ 47 = +2 reps +2lbs
    10 @ 50 = -2 reps +5lbs
    8 @ 50 = -2 reps +5lbs
    Skull Crushers / Narrow Grip Press (superset):
    10/12 @ 30 = +1/+3 reps
    10/10 @ 30 = +1/0 reps
    9/8 @ 30 = +1/+2 reps
    OverHead (single) Tricep Dumbell:
    8 @ 20
    10 @ 20
    Pushups:
    14 = +1
    11 = +1

    Diet: Normal
    Overall Feeling: Here we go! The numbers aren't off the chart yet but the feeling was quite good and when you think about me adding 3 reps to my strongest set - means I'll be doing 17 reps @ 225 by the end of my 8 weeks . Going into it I felt very strong. You know how sometimes you lift and your joints and muscles just struggle and don't feel quite right? Well this time when I was lifting my muscles felt very good, very strong and in control. No "looseness" in my shoulders or joints, I could tell it was really working the muscles.
    Notes: The pump is getting much better. Even walking around during the day now I feel a little tighter and a little stronger. The attitude and energy is good as well. Dreams are still awesome. Last night I was able to wander through a construction zone and then get chased by police as I ran up hills and was able to easily evade their attempts to get me - I laughed at them from up on my pearch. Quite a fun experience. I wonder what I'll get the chance to do tonight during my dreams. -

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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......

    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.

    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!
