Ok, heres the deal. I am going to do my first ever log. I am going to tell future viewers what supps I will be taking, how I feel on a daily basis, dosage, whether I am pleased with the progress, how my workout felt, and any side effects I am experiencing. First off, I don't think this log will be very informative or helpful to anyone unless I give you guys a little info about my experience (with lifting a supps), general stats and measurements, and background IE, why I started lifting in the first place.
Suscribe if you want, even if you do not like the supplements. I tend to find something on the cheap side that no one has written reviews for. As long as I can read the label and see what is in the supp, then I am good.
To kick things off lets tell you a little about myself. I started lifting when I was 21. Literally right after my 21st b-day. I went with an un-dependable friend for 4 months give or take. I loved the feeling, but never really gained any weight etc, etc...At this time I came to cope with the fact that I am a hard gainer and stepped up to the plate to defy genetics. For one, at 6-6'1 I have never really weighed more than 160! After the 3 month fiasco or so with my friend, I weighed in at about 165. I was not completely dissapointed! I gained 5 pounds! To make a long story short I didn't work out again for another 1.5 years! SAD HUH! I started a diff job, diff , and I never had energy.
It wasn't until I started working for "Hosting.com", that I could afford energy to use in the gym. The official start date that I use is 08-01-2006. That puts me at just over a year of full time training. The only time I took off was 2 weeks when I had a sinus infection. My stats then are as follows:
6-6'1 feet tall
no idea of BF, because I didn't work out. I was a soft 162 lbs.
MY CURRENT STATS:
6-6'1 feet tall
201 lbs @ 15% BF
So over the course of a year just supping with protein,creatine,some form of an NO product, one 30 day of ,and one 30 day of novadex xt, I am looking @ 39 lbs of weight gain. I have allways had a high metabolism, so I eat everything in my path.
------------------Current 1 rep maxes-------------------
All of these are free weight.
Flat Bench - 285
Deadlift (stiff legged) - 405
Deadlift - 450
Squat - 375
Shoulder Press - 195
I WILL BE POSTING STRENGTH GAINS AT THE END OF THE LOG.
That pretty much sums up my background and experience. Now for the future.
I WILL START THIS LOG ON MONDAY 9-17-2007 AND POST EVERY 2 DAYS.
----------------------Here are the supplemnts I will be running.----------------------------
Protein - ON - Extreme Chocolate flavor
Creatine - Size ON - by Gaspari Nutrition
NO agent - Superpump250 - by Gaspari Nutrition
The above supps are those that I take regardless. I only cycle off the creatine for a week in between tubs, and only lose 1-2 lbs of water. I tend to stay pretty dry all the time.
Anti Aromatase / Aromatase Inhibitor - Novadex XT - by Gaspari Nutrition
Hopefully a test / energy booster - Testofreak - by Colossal Labs
Guys. I am posting this to just give people something to read, and progress to watch. Please do not get into a debate on the brand names / supps I am taking. I would appreciate no FOOLIN!!!
Before pics will be posted this weekend sometime. I have to get ahold of a friend to get a decent digi camera.
Workouts? I have a program, but it is lengthy. If I can coax my GF into typing it up for me I will post it with the before pics.
Thanks in advance to all that subscribe and I hope you enjoy the show!
