    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.

    Workout Thoughts:
    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. While I wasnt able to set any new numbers, I felt strong and controlled on everything I did today. My shoulders felt really good and I left the gym satisfied with the workout I was able to put in.

    Workout Ratings
    Focus: 8/10
    *focus was excellent
    Energy: 8/10

    *went from set to set no problem
    Strength: 7.5/10
    *no increases, but everything felt good
    Pump: 8/10
    *decent shoulder and trap pump
    Workout Overall: 8/10
    *solid workout

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    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.

    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.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Threw down the same workout as last week and replicated the same numbers. A solid workout, but I am still hoping to see these numbers going up. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Focus: 8.75/10

    *good feel to the whole workout

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Workout Thoughts:
    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.

    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.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Workout went very well. Strength felt great and I was able to put up a few new PRs in the beginning of the workout. After that, i went with some different raises which arent something I try to increase weight on because I tend to lose my form when I do. Finished the workout up with some dumbell shrugs. These were great because I held for a full 5 second count at the top of each rep. My traps were dead after I finished these. It was a great workout all around.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Great shoulder workout for the second week in a row. I set a few new PRs right of the bat and had a great workout all around. I love the strength gains I am making right now. X-Factor is definitely in full swing right now. P-Slin is still doing its thing also. My endurance is still top notch and pumps were great today. I love a good shoulder pump because it makes your whole physique look wider up top and thinner at the waist. Still no sides to note.

    Workout Thoughts:
    I was just really happy to be able to get back to working legs today. I had missed the past two weeks because of knee pain. Its going to be hard to judge strength gains with my legs right now because I feel that I am more limited by what my knee can handle than where my strength is. Today I just did a bunch of hack squats. I have found that hack squats seem to take pressure off of my knee, so its something that i can do even when my knee is somewhat sore. I didnt want to push too hard and risk re-injuring it. I was really happy with what i did get done in the gym.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    I think the fact that my knee pain isnt as severe now that X-Factor is really kicking in shows that it wasnt the reason for the pain. I was really happy to get back in there and get in some solid work. Unfortunately, i dont know if I am going to be hitting any real big numbers with legs anytime soon. I just dont want to hurt the knee again. P-Slin was there with some crazy quad pumps. My quads are extremely sore today, but im not sure if that is because I hadnt worked legs for 2 weeks, or from X-F. Its possible its a combination of both.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Needless to say, this workout was amazing. I set PRs on almost every single workout. Everything felt great and I was able to keep pumping out more reps with higher weight. Things started off with PRs on both CGBP and EZ-bar curls and just kept going. I possibly could have pushed more weight on the dumbell skullchrushers but I might have sacrificed some form, which I wasnt willing to do. All the new numbers I was able to hit were done with correct form, so the gains do show that my strength is improving. I felt amazing when I left the gym today.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Today was possibly the best trip to the gym I have ever had. I set a ton of new PRs and felt amazing the whole workout. Despite the fact that I was pushing more weight than I normally would, my endurance and energy felt better than usual. Pumps were crazy too. My forearms, biceps, and triceps were hard as a rock and on the verge of being painful. I still have no side effects either so everything from this stack is positive right now.

    Weight: 193lbs (+2.75lbs)
    Arms: 15.625" (no change)
    Chest: 41.5" (+.25")

    Measurement Thoughts:
    Absolutely THRILLED with these measurements. I had been struggling with weight loss for awhile now and hadnt gained any weight for over a month. I wasnt able to weigh in last week, so these measurements display two weeks worth of progress. Still, 2.75lbs in 2 weeks is ingredible. It seems that things are turning around just as X-F is kicking in.

    Day 34




    Saturday Rest Day:
    Followed a 1-1-1-1 dosing today of X-Factor today and took my serving of P-Slin before a meal containing 80 grams of carbs. The rest day today was all about college football. I watched the BCS be torn to pieces, but hell, it was good news for my Buckeyes. Really looking forward to seeing what happens during the bowl selection show at 8.

    Day 35




    Sunday Rest Day:
    1-1-1-1 dosing of X-Factor today and had my P-Slin serving before an 80 gram carb meal. Day would have been better if the Browns won, but it was still a pretty good day. Took a nap and watched some football. Had some stuff to do for school which sucked, but after that, it was a pretty relaxing day.

    What an awesome workout. I beat my old PR on bench press today by a full two reps. I was amazed when I finished that set. I just kept pushing the weight up. A full two rep increase over last weeks best is amazing. Then I went to Biangular Inclines and set a new PR on those as well. Next were decline dumbells which I set another PR on and then finished off the workout with PRs on dips. Probably one of the best workouts I have had.

    I could not believe the strength I had in the gym today. This was probably the best workout I have ever had based on all the strength increases. I was thrilled to increase in bench by two reps. X-F is doing amazing things for my strength. Endurance was good, but the pumps I had today were extremely impressive. I looked extremely full throughout my upper body. I am also experience no side effects right now, which is great.

    More PRs and another great workout. I felt great in the gym yet again and was able to set some more PRs. Straight arm lat pulldowns felt great with each rep. I could really feel my lats contracting on each rep. T-Bar rows were also awesome and i was able to set a new PR on that. Since T-Bar rows are one of my favorite excercises, I was particularly happy with that. Energy was also really good during the workout. I got done 5 minutes earlier than I usually do.

    Strength keeps going up. Each workout is bringing new PRs right now. I am extremely impressed by X-Factor. I never expected to see strength increases as significant as this happening so fast. Pump was awesome today too, but my endurance was crazy. P-Slin is definitely working because I didnt even realize I was shortening my rest periods. This stack is treating me great all around.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Good workout today. I started off with PRs on Smith Machine Presses. After that, I went with raises instead of power movements. For this reason, I wasnt really pushing for new PRs. The incline rear delt flys were something new for me, but im not sure i really liked them much. Lat raises and cable fronts were done extremely slowly. My delts were fried at the end of my workout and looked huge.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Another PR, although I may have gotten more if I worked in more power movements. With raises, I typically stay with the same weight and slow down the movement to increase intensity, rather than increase weight. This helps me keep my form tight and controlled. P-Slin was solid again as well. My shoulders looked huge and made my entire physique look wide. Still no side effects and im not really noticing an increase in DOMS either.

    Workout Thoughts:
    Still just happy to get in the gym and do something on leg days. My knee is feeling better each week, and i feel like I can do more and more with it. I am worried about reinjuring it though, so i have been making sure i dont push it too hard too fast. I did get in some pretty solid work today though. Legs felt good after leg presses, but my quads were definitely feeling it more than the hams. Thats why I jumped on the lying leg curls. Finished up with some calf raises. Pretty good workout all around.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Legs are the only day that i cant really judge strength gains from X-F. I feel more like I am limited by my knee than the amount of weight I can push. Still, i felt good in the gym and P-Slin was definitely contributing some great endurance and an awesome pump in my quads. No side effects to report right now.

    I was unfortunately unable to make it to the gym today and had to work out with the stuff in my basement. The stuff I have isnt the greatest, but its enough to get the job done. Its possible that some of the weight numbers arent completely correct, just because im not sure of the bar weight on some of my stuff. The numbers are close though. The whole workout went pretty well.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Really solid workout today and I was again able to hit some new PRs. The craziest thing about the workout today was the pumps. My arms were fuller than I can remember them ever being. Even my forearms were pulsing. I was very impressed. It was to the point of being painful at times, but it luckily didnt negatively affect my workout. No side effects to report at this point besides a little increased soreness in my triceps when I woke up today.

    1-1-1-1 dosing of X-Factor and took my P-Slin about 15 minutes before an 80gram carb meal. Lots of studying for a final today, so there isnt much exciting to report. No real side effects or anything like that right now.

    Good workout today and set a new PR on bench press and incline bench. Really happy to see the numbers on bench keep going up. I did have a few numbers go down from last workout near the end. My dips were down 1 reps each set. I was sort of disappointed about that, but the PRs at the beginning made up for it. Overall i was happy with what I got done in the workout.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Another solid day in the gym. X-Factor is still doing its thing as the workout started out strong and i was able to once again push out PRs on bench and then incline bench. P-Slin delivered anouther good day of pumps as I was really full in the chest and tris. Unfortunately, my endurance wasnt completely there today, as i noticed a bit of a drop off in some of my numbers near the end of the workout.

    A solid workout all around, but nothing really spectacular. I think I have been spoiled by all the increases and PRs I have been hitting lately. There was only one improvement in this workout but I was able to match all my numbers from before. My back felt really good when the workout was over. I did try this new row machine we had at the gym, but i didnt really like it all that much. I dont think I will be using it very often, if ever at all.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    For the first workout in awhile, I wasnt able to hit any new PRs. It was still a good workout all around though. My back was extremely pumped and my endurance was very good, so P-Slin definitely did its thing today. I am really happy that I have been able to avoid the side effects that normally seem to come with X-F. I have no increase in soreness or joint pain.

    Solid workout. I was able to hit a bunch of new PRs, so that is always a good thing. I felt really good from start to finish and i was just in the zone the entire time. Strength, pumps, and intensity were all top notch. An all around solid workout.

    X-Factors strength benefits are still obvious. I set a bunch of new PRs today and I am really happy about it. I have really been enjoying my time on X-F and am sad that the cycle will be ending soon. P-Slin is still doing its thing too. More solid endurance and another great pump in my shoulders and traps. Still no side effects either.
