    Workout Thoughts:
    Solid shoulder work today. Started off with some Smith Machine presses that went well. Next were cable front raises which I took well over parallel to the ground. Side-to-front raises came next which are one of my favorite shoulder movements. Did some seated bent over raises to hit the rear delts and then got in some trap work. My traps felt great after I finished since I held tight at the top for a count on each rep. Ended the workout with some ab work.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Pumps were decent in the delts, but nothing mind blowing either. Endurance was pretty solid and I got through the workout relatively quickly, which felt good. No marked strength increases on anything yet but my trips to the gym are feeling good and productive. Still no side effects to mention. Everything seems to be progressing as expected.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Honestly, today I was just happy to be able to get in the gym and get some leg work in. My knee was killing me today. I tried a few squats with just the bar and there was absolutely no way. Then I tried some hack squats and those were just as painful. I know that leg ext and curls arent the ideal way to work legs, but it was really the only way I was going to be able to do anything with my legs today. My knee was just in too much pain to do anything else. Hopefully the pain subsides so that I can get under the squat bar again and really get in some quality leg work.

    Workout Ratings
    Focus: 7/10
    *knee pain was in my head the whole time
    Energy: 8/10
    *solid energy
    Endurance: 7/10
    *endurance was good but it wasnt the usual leg day intensity
    Strength: 7/10

    Pump: 8.25/10
    *actually got a good leg pump
    Workout Overall: 7.5/10
    *really wish I could have squated but I guess it was alright

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    The first thing I want to say is that these knee pains are NOT from XFactor. The pain is strictly in my right knee and is from a sports injury. This kind of knee pain is just something I have to deal with from time to time. It seems to come in spurts were it will be pretty bad for a few weeks and then go away for awhile. It was obviously difficult to really judge much today since I was doing the same type of power movements that I usually would on a leg day. I did have a pretty good pump though, so that was nice.

    X-Factor Dosed:
    2 preworkout, 1 afternoon, 1 evening

    Workout Thoughts:
    Workout was pretty solid today. My arms were really pumped and I could feel my arms contract hard with every rep because of it. Supersets were intense once again and I felt pretty much exhausted when I finished the workout. Like I always do before my friday workout, I take my weight for my weekly measurement updates. I was once again disappointed with the results but it did get me pissed off and contributed to a great workout.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Workout was really good today. This was the best arm pump I have had in awhile. My arms looked extremely full but what really stood out was how tight my skin felt. I normally get a pretty tight and full pump, but today it felt like my skin was stretching with every contraction on curls. It wasnt quite to the point of being painful, but im sure it would be if it gets anymore intense. Endurance again was very solid. I felt pretty energized and ready to move from superset to superset. No major strength increases yet. Also, no sides to report.

  4. Week 2 Measurements




    Week 2 Measurement Updates

    Weight: 191lbs (-1lbs)
    Arms: 15.625" (no change)
    Chest: 41.25" (no change)
    Shoulders: 48.125" (no change)
    Waist: 32.5"(no change)
    Calves: 15.5"(no change)
    Thighs: 24.5"(no change)
    Forearms: 13.375"(no change)

    Measurement Thoughts:
    Lost another pound and didnt gain on anything. I even increased calories by 100 this week and it only served to increase my degree of weight loss. I am not gaining anything in measurements and my waist is the same, so its not like I am losing fat and gaining muscle. I definitely dont think I appear leaner in the mirror. I did have 2 really big tests on Wednesday this week, so perhaps the stress contributed, but this weight loss has been an ongoing problem and I feel like I am just searching for ways to justify not gaining weight. Sort of disappointed right now.
  5. Day 13




    Saturday Rest Day:
    Followed a 1-1-1-1 dosing today. Went out to eat and had a bit of a cheat meal. Im pretty much trying to do anything I can to get the weight gain back on track. Pretty solid day of rest. Did some hanging out and got some good sleep last night.

    From my personal experience with XF i would have to increase my cals by around 500 just to get to my old maintenance. So say you want 500 over maintenance you are going to have to increase your cals 1000 over your origional maintenance

    Yeah, im just going to keep bumping up the calories and hope something good happens. The weight loss problems have been going on since before this log started though, so i dont think its just from the X-F
  8. Day 14




    Sunday Rest Day:
    Went with a 2-2 dosing of X-Factor today. Had P-Slin before an 80gram carb meal. Nothing too much to report today. It was rainy outside, so that sort of bummed me out. Ate some good food and took a good nap.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Pretty decent workout all around. I saw some good strength increases on dumbell decline presses. Nothing else went up, but i felt pretty solid on everything. I am really hoping that when X-Factor fully kicks in, I will seem some good strength gains on my bench press. On another side note, my knee was very sore today and I am considering going to the doctor to get it checked out. In the past, this kind of pain has gone away after about a week but it seems to be lingering this time.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Pump was really strong in my chest today. My pecs were extremely full and hard. I also had some pretty solid endurance throughout the workout and didnt really feel like I needed very much rest between my sets. I had some strength increases on dumbell declines, but nothing on bench press. Im really hoping that will start to go up when X-Factor starts to kick in. No sides to speak of right now.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Happy with the back workout today. Lats felt great. I went with both normal grip and underhand grip lat pulldowns. My lats felt amazing and I was pumped like crazy and looked really wide. I didnt set any new numbers, but that is partially becuase I dont do lat pulldowns like this too often. The workout felt good from start to finishl and I was really happy with what i got done.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Everything is still going the way I would have expected. X-Factor hasnt kicked in yet, so I havent seen any real big strength increases. I did get another excellent pump and solid endurance for the duration of the workout. On this cycle of P-Slin, I have been getting my best pumps on back days which is different than my previous experience. No side effects yet.

    I would rate todays workout as solid but not spectacular. I did the exact same workout as last week and hit all the exact same numbers.

    Again, nothing was spectacular today, but everything was solid. Pumps and endurance were both pretty good and nothing to complain about there. X-Factor still hasnt kicked in as my numbers arent improving yet and I'm not really noticing much in the way of side effects either. Hopefully as things continue, it will start getting crazy.

  15. Day 18




    Thursday

    The knee pain I have been dealing with got to the point where I had to skip the leg work today. The pain was just too much to really get anything done and I think the only way Im going to get past it is to take a break and rest it for a week or two. If it is still like this next week, I will probably head to the doctor.

All in all, I left the gym satisfied, but not overwhelmed by any means. Hopefully I will be able to start seeing these numbers blowing up because Im getting around that time when the X-Factor should really start kicking in.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Pretty good workout today. Overall I was happy with how things went, but also somewhat disappointed that I wasnt able to push some of those numbers higher. Endurance was very good once again, and P-Slin really shines on these superset arm days. Pump was pretty nuts too. X-Factor hasnt seemed to kick in yet, but it should be pretty soon.

    Measurement Thoughts:
    I guess the only good news is that I didnt lose a full pound and only .75 this week. I still dont understand what is going on right now because there is no way that I am cutting at about 3,800 calories. I really hope whatever is going on gets taken care of.
  18. Day 20




    Saturday Rest Day:
    Followed a 1-1-1-1 dosing today. Pretty solid rest day, especially when accounting for the OSU win. Wasnt the most exciting game in the world but that doesnt even matter. Took a little bit of a nap today and enjoyed the relaxation i got out of it.
  19. Day 21




    Sunday Rest Day:
    1-1-1-1 dosing of X-Factor today and had my P-Slin serving before an 80 gram carb meal. Worked today and then watched some football. Pretty solid day of rest, so not much to complain about. Really hoping next week brings some good strength and weight improvements.
  20. Day 22




    Monday

    I planned on today being a chest day, but it didnt work out that way. I showed up at my gym and found it was closed for maintenance, which doesnt make sense considering it will likely be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving. Regardless, it looks like i need to push my workouts back a day.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Switched things up today and went with a bench press pyramid. There was no one else in the gym, so i didnt have to worry about taking up a bench for too long. It really felt good and when I left the gym, I was really happy with what I got done. The workout flew by and rest periods between sets were pretty minimal. It made for a very intense workout.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Endurance was really good today. I kept the rest between sets pretty short, yet was still able to push out the reps I was hoping for. My chest was also very pumped. It looked and felt great. Not sure X-Factor has kicked in yet, but hopefully it does soon. No side effects to speak of yet.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Really good back workout today. Set a new PR for seated cable rows, so I was very happy with that. Hopefully I will be setting alot of new PRs as the days go on and X-Factor really starts to hit. The biangular lat pulldown machine is something that I hadnt done in a really long time. It used to be one of my favorite machines, but i got away from it until this workout. My back felt thouroughy abused when I was leaving the gym, so i was happy.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Its 24 days in and I still dont feel like X-Factor has really hit yet. I havent had any really surprising strength increases that I would attribute to something outside of my normal routine. Hopefully things start to really hit in the next few days. P-Slin was solid once again as I got a very good pump, as well as solid endurance and set to set recovery. No sides to report whatsoever.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Hell of a workout today. 3 PRs and a few other strength increases. I felt amazing and each time I set a new PR, it just made me want to push more. My delts felt great by the end of the workout. The shoulder press machine is where things really got crazy as I set higher numbers on all 3 of my sets. The different dumbell raises werent a great test of strength because I focus on form on those rather than weight. However, I was able to increase weight on my machine shrugs as well. I was really happy with what I did in the gym today.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    It looks like X-Factor may be starting to kick in, just as I am finishing the first bottle. I was able to set a bunch of PRs today and also increased on some other sets. My delts felt really good and I was really happy to see that many gains made. I also noticed that my lats are very sore today, much more than I usually expect, another sign that X-F may be starting to do its thing. P-Slin gave good endurance and pumps once again also. Hopefully more of what I saw today is in store and things can really start getting crazy. Also, Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

  24. Day 26 (Workout #20)




    Friday Arm Workout

    My gym was closed again today, so I couldnt get in a real workout. I wasnt about to skip another day, so I did what I could at my house. I have some bars and plates here, so I did the best that I could. Unfortunately, the workout basically consisted of some higher rep schemes since I didnt have sufficient weight. I finished off with some ab work.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Its hard to get in real quality work with the limited selection that I was working with but I did what I could to make the workout intense. I superset bis and tris as I usually would and cut rest times down very shortly. I was able to get in some quality ab work, so I was happy about that.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    I was disappointed to not be able to get in the gym because I think X-F might be kicking in and I really wanted to see what that would mean. I did get a really good pump in my arms, but that is likely due to the high reps I was pumping out. Endurance was pretty good, but again, its hard to judge since this wasnt my traditional workout. Unfortunately, since I wasnt able to go to the gym, I didnt get a weight check for the week. I can hopefully get that on Monday and I will update my stats then.

  25. Day 27




    Saturday Rest Day:
    Followed a 1-1-1-1 dosing today of X-Factor today. Did some reading for school and got some other stuff done that I needed to do. Took my P-Slin before dinner tonight because my mom was making a nice dinner, so I knew there would be some extra carbs involved in that. Not much else to report.
  26. Day 28




    Sunday Rest Day:
    1-1-1-1 dosing of X-Factor and took my P-Slin about 15 minutes before a cheat meal. Me and a few friends went to watch football at a sports bar, so I ate a pretty solid amount of pizza and enjoyed every minuted of it. Browns won too, so it made for an excellent off day.

  27. Better late than never. I will be running this stack soon, so I am very interested in your results.

    Workout Thoughts:
    I think the strength gains and PRs speak for themself. This was one hell of a workout for me. I was really really happy to see the bench start going up. I had been stuck on bench for awhile. The 5 reps at 225lbs ties a PR I set a little while back when I was doing a strength program. Hopefully I will break that PR in the next workout or two. Followed that up with the biangular flat bench and set a new PR on that as well. I did incline DBs and that was the only thing I wasnt able to set PRs on. Finished off with some weighted dips and was able to set a new PR on that as well. Obviously this was an excellent workout.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    I think it would be an understatement to say that X-Factor is kicking in. Today was one of the best days I have had in the gym in awhile. Everything felt great and I was especially happy to see my bench go up. Im planning on seeing a new PR on that in the next workout or two. Hitting all these new numbers kept pushing me to want to lift more. It was great. P-Slin came through as usual. My endurance was top notch and pumps were great. Both my triceps and pecs were extremely full and tight. I didnt notice much in the way of increased soreness in my chest and I also dont have an increased joint soreness.

    Good workout. I saw some solid strength increases and was also able to hit a new PR on seated cable rows. I was really pumped about the workout and it felt great from start to finish. One other thing of note is that this workout flew by. I didnt even realize until the end that I got done a good 10 minutes earlier than i usually would.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Another great workout. Im really loving this stack now that the X-F has kicked in. Obviously P-Slin is doing its thing as well since I flew through this workout and didnt even realize it. Pump was great as well. Still no real side effects to note. No increase in DOMS either.
