Schmazz's First Log Blue-Up + Alpha Drive XL
So I thought I'd post my first log on this site. I'll be taking 4 weeks of Blue-Up and Alpha Drive. I'm going to start in a few days, probably next monday.
Not quite sure how to do a log, so I may need a little guidance on this.
Hang Clean: 185
60 Time: 7.4
I lift mainly for explosive power. We're lifting extremely heavy for Scout Week (I play D1 baseball) which is in 5 weeks, so hopefully these supplements give me the little extra "oomph" I need to make my numbers look a little more appealing. I'd like to take .2 off of my 60 time, and add about 10-15 pounds on my lifts.
I picked these two supplements mainly because they were on sale at NP, and because they shouldn't mess with my hormone levels on the long-term, because they produce endogenous sources of Test, not exogenous. Being on a college budget and everything, I have to look for the slightly cheaper versions. I plan on running 3 caps of ADXL a day, and 2 of Blue-Up, Pre-WO on workout days, or in the morning on non-lifting days.
I lift on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday. I'll be starting this stack in a few days. We also do cardio every day except for Sunday. I also pitch about 2-3 times a week, for one inning (I'm a closer).
I've only had a little experience when I ran BioTest's Tribex a few months ago. I felt good on it, but only saw minimal gains. Obviously I'm not expecting AAS gains, but I would have liked to have seen a little more. Also, any thoughts on running PowerFULL on this?

Since the ADXL isn't here yet, I decided to run the BU a little earlier. I should start the ADXL monday or tuesday.
Semi-light lifting day
Bottom Squats 85kgs, 5x5 (Go ass to grass, pause on the bottom for a 3 count, and explode up. Just trying to work on my explosiveness out of the pocket)
Hang Snatch - Set a new 1RM in this! Do I attribute this to the BU? Definitely not. However, it's still nice to get this right at the start of the cycle to see if I can raise it by a fair amount at the end. Worked up to a 1RM of 60kg.
Wide Grip Pull-ups - Did a simple 5x5, just body weight. Not trying to add mass or anything, just trying to give my lats a refresher. I've noticed that when I go light like that, it helps with my recovery time. I'll probably hit them hard on monday.
Close Grip Bench - 5x5 of steady 60kg. Once again, just trying to stay relatively light, also this DID work my tri's a little harder than I would have liked.
Notes: To be perfectly honest, I haven't noticed too much of an effect from the BU. The Yohimbine in it made me a little jittery. It's strange, some products that contain Yohimbine make me jitter like nobody's business, others don't. This is middle of the pack, and I can tolerate it. The stim boost is nice, but seems to be a little light for the claimed 250mgs of caffeine. Perhaps it's underdosed?

hey, I don't mean to spoil the fun and all but seeing as to it that your 18, I would say your test levels are high enough already. Not sure exactly how much blue up and Alpha Drive would really help considering at his age you should be in your Test Prime. Best of luck with this though!

Obviously if I see anything wrong I'm going to stop taking the stuff immediately.

Beta alanine is also a great supplement for reducing lactic acid.

Two decent workouts since I've started the ADXL. I'm only going to post today's workout.
Lunges: 3x6 50kgs.
Hang Clean to Front Squat: Worked up to a max of 75kgs.
Clean Deadlift: 5x5 120kgs
Floor Press: Worked up to 3x3 of 80kgs.
Prone Row: 3x8 60kgs.
Straight Bar Curl: 3x6 30kgs
Weighted HLR's: 3x15 with 15 pounds
Notes: Still haven't really noticed any recovery affects yet. With the Tribex I took before I didn't notice affects until around the beginning of the 2nd week, so I'm not concerned. My libido is certainly up, so that's a good start. On a possibly unrelated note, I've had some fairly violent dreams the past 2 nights. I'm pretty sure it's just because of stress levels, but perhaps it could be the increased test?
I've been splitting up the dose of the BU to 1 dosage pre-workout, and 1 mid-workout in order to avoid the jitters. Seems to work pretty well.

How much reading did you do into the ingredients listed in Alpha Drive?

That is true, but ADED is an ATD metabolite... And you are young... And you are stacking 2 test boosters... One of which contains a mild AI... I'm sure you know what your doing I'm just making sure.

Another workout today. Much, much longer than usual.
Front Squats: Worked up to a final set of 3x3 at 100kgs
Hang Clean: Worked up to a 1x5 at my 95% of my 1RM at 80kgs
Romanian Deadlift + Shrug: 5x5, 100kgs
Bench Press: Worked up to 1x5 of 85kgs
CG Bench Press: 3x8 60kgs
Bent Row: 3x8 70kgs
Hang Snatch: Worked up to 1x3 at 60kgs.
Hanging Leg Raises: 3x10 with 15lbs added weight.
Notes: I'm definitely noticing increased test levels. I'm a bit worried, I didn't expect them to get THIS high. My back is breaking out like nobody's business. I'm recovering fairly quickly, much quicker than before. I've noticed a little leaning out, but my diet isn't as calorie high as usual. I think it's too soon to notice strength gains, although I did notice the bench was up 2.5kgs.
I might drop the dosage of ADXL to 2 pills a day, and just 1 pill of BU pre-workout. Don't wanna risk shutdown, even from something like an herbal booster.

Jump Squats: 3x8 50kgs
Box Squats: Worked up to 130 kgs, 5 sets of 1 rep.
Good Mornings: 4x8 55kgs
Pullups: 16, 12, 10, 7
Back Ext: 4x8 20kgs
HLR's: 3x15 with 15 lbs.
Hang Snatch: Worked up to 5 sets of 1 at 50kgs.
Notes: Finally noticing quicker recovery time. I love it. If experience tells me anything I should see the weights going up next week. Love the ADXL. The Blue-up is great, but I need to take it 90 minutes before to see the most effects. I don't feel the aggressiveness until 90 minutes after, and I'd rather have that than the stim effect for my workout.
