    Workout Thoughts:
    Good leg workout. Each week, i am doing more and more in the gym on leg days. I feel like its getting stronger and stronger and i dont feel like i need to worry as much about reinjuring it. I was even able to set a new PR, which i hadnt done in awhile on legs. Legs press felt real good and i felt like i was giving pretty much full intensity on it without knee limitations. All around, i was happy with the workout.

    Workout Overall: 8.5/10
    *legs felt great

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Finally getting to the point were I can start pushing it on leg days again. X-F still isnt getting completely put to the test yet though, just because i havent been pushing it maximally on legs the duration of this log. P-Slin really shines on leg days though. Leg days always take everything out of me but i definitely notice a nice boost to endurance and a killer pump in my quads when training legs with P-Slin.

    Another solid arm workout. No new numbers today, but my arms were worked completely. MMC was great today and I could really feel each rep working the muscle. Tricep dips felt really good. My arms were extremely pumped after those. All around, the workout felt amazing and I was really happy with what I was able to get in.

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    Another great arm workout with X-F and P-Slin. Strength has and continues to be very solid. Endurance was great in the gym today and I flew through the supersets without a problem. My arms were extremely pumped in the gym. They were tight as hell and i could feel them everytime I bent my arms. Still no side effects either. The only negative thing I can think of is that this log will be over in 3 days.

    Week 7 Measurements




    Week 7 Measurement Updates

    Weight: 195lbs (+1lbs)
    Arms: 15.625" (no change)
    Chest: 41.5" (no change)
    Shoulders: 48.625" (+.125")
    Waist: 32.25"(-.25")
    Calves: 15.625"(no change)
    Thighs: 24.5"(no change)
    Forearms: 13.375"(no change)

    Measurement Thoughts:
    I was extremely surprised to see that I had gained weight, while shrinking in the waist at the same time. I actually thought there was something wrong with the measurement so i waited an extra day before posting this and remeasured and it still says the same thing. What more can i ask for than gaining size while slimming at the waist.

    Day 48




    Saturday Rest Day:
    1-1-1-1 dosing of X-F with P-Slin taken before an 89gram carb breakfast. Nothing much to report today. I didnt have to work or do anything like that, so I really took it easy today. It was good to just have a day of complete relaxation now that I am done with school for christmas break.

    Day 49




    Sunday Rest Day:
    1-1-1-1 dosing of X-Factor and took my P-Slin about 15 minutes before an 80gram carb meal. Pretty restful day today. Watched the Browns play in the snow. It wasnt the most exciting game in the world, but we won so it was badass. NO side effects or anything to report. Tomorrow will be the last update of this log.

    X-Factor Dosed:

    Workout Thoughts:
    A solid workout to end the log with. I was able to hit one more PR on my bench press, pushing out an extra rep from last week. I did the same workout as last week just so that i could really judge any increase in this last week. Outside of the PR on bench press, everything else was the same as last week but I still felt great when the workout was over. I was very happy with what I got out of this final workout of the log.

    Workout Ratings
    Focus: 9/10
    *amazing focus
    Energy: 9/10
    *good energy
    Endurance: 8.5/10
    *solid endurance throughout

    *new PR on bench
    Pump: 9/10
    *really great pump
    Workout Overall: 8.5/10
    *solid way to end the log

    X-Factor/Pslin Thoughts:
    I was happy with this as and end to the log. X-F once again helped me push out a strength increase, which I was thrilled about. P-Slin was right there with the endurance and the monster pump. My chest was extremely full and tight, as were my triceps. All around, another solid day in the gym. I was thrilled with this stack all around. Be on the lookout for the final review and pictures either later today or tomorrow.

    X-Factor/P-Slin Stack
    Final Review

    Measurement Gains

    Weight: 192.5lbs---->195lbs (+2.5lbs)
    Arms: 15.625"---->15.625" (no change)
    Chest: 41.25"---->41.5"(+.25")
    Shoulders: 48.25"---->48.625"(+.5")
    Waist: 32.5"---->32.25"(-.25")
    Calves: 15.5"---->15.625"(+.125")
    Thighs: 24.5"---->24.5"(no change)
    Forearms: 13.25"---->13.375"(+.125")
    *Overall i was happy, but not blown away by these measurements. When I started this stack, i was struggling with weight loss. That trend continued for about the first 3 weeks of this log. At about the 4th week into the stack, I started gaining weight again. I still am not sure what was going on with the weight loss, becuase it didnt seem to matter how much food i added each week, the weight was still coming off. I cant say for sure whether it was the stack that helped me get over the weight plateau or not. In the last four weeks of this log, I was able to put on 4.75lbs, which is impressive. I feel like the weight loss issue took away from truely seeing what this stack could have provided where growth is concerned. One thing I was shocked by was that I lost .25" in my waist while still putting on some solid weight. That didnt happen when I ran P-Slin on its own.

    Strength Gains

    Bench Press: 225lbs 4reps---->235lbs 6reps
    Alt Dumbell Shoulder Presses: 50lbs 8reps---->55lbs 7reps
    Shoulder Press Machine: 105lbs 6reps---->115lbs 6reps
    EZ Bar Curls: 85lbs 8reps---->95lbs 8reps
    Close Grip Bench Press: 175lbs 6reps---->185lbs 7reps
    *Strength gains are what I was most happy with about this stack. I hit a new PR for every muscle group, even legs which was surprising since I struggled with knee pain throughout the log. The numbers that I posted are just a few examples of the more impressive strength gains I made. I was most excited about the great gains I made in bench press. I hadnt gained much in bench for awhile, so that was great. All around, i was thrilled with the strength I gained with this stack.

    X-Factor Thoughts: I was really happy with my cycle of X-Factor in regards to strength. I had never used X-Factor before, but I had used P-Slin on its own. During my previous P-Slin experience, I didnt notice anything near the strength gains I made during this log, so I can say with a fair amount of confidence that the strength gains I made were due in large part to X-Factor. Unfortunately, i feel like the weight loss issue I was having before this log and during the start of it hindered my chance of really seeing the growth benefits of X-Factor. The strength gains were great and I was also very pleased that once I did start gaining weight, I lost in the waist at the same time. All things considered, I was impressed with X-Factor.

    P-Slin Thoughts: This was not my first experience with P-Slin. I had used it before with pretty solid results. P-Slin provides me with two benefits that I really like, endurance and pumps. The added endurance allows me to push harder in the gym by cutting down rest times and possibly throwing in some extra ab work or cardio at the end of my session. The pumps are a great added bonus. However, if pumps were all this product gave me, than I wouldnt like it as much. For me, a pump is a confidence booster that I am not willing to spend extra money for if it doesnt directly benefit my bodybuilding goals. However, the added endurance from P-Slin directly increases my workout intensity. In my previous P-Slin experience (before this log), I didnt notice much as far as decreased soreness, instead feeling the same amount of soreness I would normally get without P-Slin. During this log, i didnt notice any increased DOMS from X-F like some people speak of, but i did experience the same soreness I would usually expect. I cant really say that P-Slin was responsible for me not getting extra DOMS from X-F, just because it didnt really have an effect in that department in my previous experience. Still, i love P-Slin for its endurance and pump effects.

    Thoughts on Products as a Stack: All around I was thrilled with this stack and this log. Together, these products make for an excellent stack. X-Factor give you added strength while P-Slin allows you to push your gym experience harder, for longer. Pumps were excellent with these two products together also. All around, this was a great stack and something I would really recommend. Thank you to USPlabs and Molecular Nutrition for the tremendous opportunity and thanks to everyone who followed along.

    Side Effects: I thought it would be worthwhile to mention that I experience none of the side effects that many people get during a cycle of X-Factor. There were no increased DOMS and no joint soreness. I also didnt get any increased acne. All around, I was happy to experience none of these negative aspects.

    Would I Purchase Again: The ultimate test of a supplement is whether I would purchase it again. The answer for both of these supplements is yes. X-Factor is extremely costly, which makes it difficult to purchase too often. However, I definitely loved the strength gains I made with it and would like to run a cycle sometime when I'm not dealing with weight loss issues. P-Slin is something that I already have a decent store of, mainly because I won a few free bottles of it. However, it is something I will buy for times when I want to do intense training styles for certain periods of time. During short rest period style and superset style training is when I will use P-Slin in the future.
