    Supplement Reviews

    Alpha Drive XL
    This is my second negative experience with ADED products. I do not believe this has any positive effects and it may be associated with negative effect on libido.

    Activate Extreme
    May have contributed to pumps, hardness, and vascularity. I believe this to be a mediocre supplement at best

    Lean Extreme and Reduce XT
    I believe that both were equally effective in fending off a bit of body fat. I would like to try one of these 7oxo products again in the future.

    Eform
    Anyone who knows me knows that I like this supplement.

    RPM
    This is an excellent BEGINNER stim. I seem to be hit or miss with stims and preworkout mixes, so this was a pleasant surprise. Those more experienced with stims might not get an aggressive kick that they are looking for. I personally thought that RPM effective. I give it a thumbsup.

    HST Training Review

    The goal of continued weight training without aggravating a mild back injury was very successful. The planned progressive load theory ensured back safety and a psychologically successful workout every time.

    Full body routines are mentally challenging, especially if you are accustomed to long rest periods between sets. The repetition of the same routine got boring during the 5's week. The pump and hardness rewards during 15s and 10s was more than worth it.

    If I ran HST a second time, I would make 2 changes:

    1) I would strictly run 3 full body routines. I would NOT split into push/pull or upper/lower at any time.

    2) I would run 16s, 12s, and 8s. 4 weeks of 5s was unproductive IMO. Also, when the weights get heavy in the 5's, it requires more warm up sets for compound moves. You can't just throw 300 or 350 pounds on your back for squats without several warm up sets. This is innefficient time management in a routine which demands efficiency for success.

    "Final Review"

    If I ran this stack a second time, I would drop the Alpha Drive XL and Activate Extreme. I would run either Lean Extreme or Reduce XT at 3 caps per day with 200mg/day TD formestane. I believe RPM has it's place and was effective for me personally.

    I believe some of the body comp plateau came after the transition from 10's to 5's (repetition range) during the HST routine. This may have skewed what could have been more positive gains during the final 3-4 weeks of this stack.

    Although my objective body comp results are less than spectacular, I believe I look much leaner than the skinfolds indicate. I've also gotten many compliments, especially on my arms since running this stack. This hasn't happened since I ran my halo cycle in august.

    My plan is to preload and then run AX Pheraplex in January. I'll use my own high volume split during the preload and cycle. I will run HST for post cycle with 16/12/8 microcycles as mentioned above.

    Are you doing the full body training each session or splitting upper/lower? Time off with HST is called deconditioning....its my favorite part of HST, lol.

    Day 5

    Tuesday, November 13

    Postive:
    I'm noticing some hardening up overall. Pumps in the gym are lasting several hours after workouts. I credit the pumps to the supplements and the frequency of the full body workouts.

    Negative:
    So far ADED is 2 for 2 in giving me spontaneous nose bleeds. I had nose bleeds last summer on Jungle Warfare and again with Alpha Drive XL. I've tried all the other supplements in my stack and they are not the culprit. I'll ride this out because I don't see it as that big of a deal.

    Travis, I'm doing the full body workouts 2 times per week with a random day on Saturdays with a training partner. This full body routine is a welcome change because I don't think I've EVER used full body routines before. Very unimpressive lineup in my split:

    Squat
    SLDL
    BB Row
    Pullups
    Flat Bench
    Lateral Raise
    BB Shrugs
    BB Curl
    Nose Breakers
    Calves, abs, random delts etc etc when time permits.
    ... I can hear the yawns from here

    UNC, by the time I'm done with this stack, you'll know for sure if it prodcues results. I'm looking for a recomp effect.

    Nice. HST is a great routine. If I didn't hate it so much, I'd definitely do it more frequently. (When saying I hate it, I mean the monotony and 3x per week was too much on my lower body with cardio on off days).

    You are definitely going to get some great results. HST is VERY effective.

    Matt, thanks for joining the fun.

    Thesinner, you KNEW I was gonna try it eventually. Rep schemes are closer to 15's and 12's at this point. The heavy stuff is gonna come gradually due cautiously protecting the muscle strain.

    The higher reps phase is important. It teaches your body to better handle lactic acid as well as "re-wires" you, which will drive into a greater hypertrophic response as you while you're progressive loading at the higher weights (lower reps).

    This is an important aspect of HST, which (although I've 'tweaked' it a lil') I still use in my routine.

    the leanextreme proved to be better than i expected, anything over two caps a day and my joints were crying. i ran the activate extreme at 6 caps a day and had decent recomp effect, but damn i went through that bottle fast. good luck celc, tough break with the back. btw i liked the extreme better than mass fx, just my opinion.

    I'll keep that in mind with the Lean Extreme. If any joint issue pop up, I'll consider lowering the dosage for sure. Thanks for the advice.

    I thought the divanil only version of Activate was more effective than Mfx so I expect the ActEx to be at least as effective. I like it so far.

    I've used LX 2.0 up to 5 caps a day. Didnt notice any dry joints so seems really user dependent. I thought D recommended double dosing it....cant recall exactly though.

    I do morning, 4 hours later, pre workout, before bed, and I also have no joint issues.

    I never dose 2 at a time though...

    i dont consider it a bad thing, at 2 caps ed it lasts alot longer. most stuff i have to double dose, so lean extreme gets a thumbs up.

    Thanks for the feedback fellas

    Travis, I've heard similar suggestions but moreso in terms of Retain2 being significantly underdosed. I can't remember where I read that though.

    Nelix, that's pretty close to how I'm dosing the 3 primary supps in the stack. Morning and then every 4 hours.

    BigT, I seem to be hit or miss with the joint issues. If you remember, 6oxo WRECKED my joints (otherwise an AWESOME supplement). I don't think any supps have contributed to joint issues since then. Although, I've never steadily dosed 7OH so I'll be careful for sure.

    Retain is slightly underdosed - I usually buy a bottle of Relora by NOW Foods and take with it. Or just take the Relora, it's cheap and effective.

    i really like the lean extreme, nice firming effect. its nice for me to find a supp thats effective at or below recommended dose. everyones different but it works well for me at a low dose. good luck celc.

    NasD, crazy coincidence that you pm'd me about this stack- Welcome bro

    Thesinner and Travis, I believe the overtraining issue with HST has to deal with our habits of training to failure. Progressive load negates the need to train to failure all the time. So in the first week of 10's and 5's, you're still making gains along the progressive load theory without burning out your CNS and feeling overtrained.

    Day 7

    Nice lift today, but split things up to do just push moves as time was limited.

    The RPM takes a bit longer to kick in than stims that I am accustomed to. 4 caps takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to kick in, even on an empty stomach. It gave me good energy today but there is no enhanced mood when compared to my standard for ideal preworkout- TRAC Extreme NO.

    IF I worked out in the morning, I'd dose 6 caps RPM preworkout. Problem is, I work out around 5ish and it interfered with sleep 2 nights ago on 5 caps.

    Libido is off the charts. I have to admit that I hooked up with an ex last night. I made it clear that no phone calls or "drop ins" are allowed Anyway, performance, stamina, and size were all enhanced without a doubt. I'll dub this the rockstar stack if it continues in this direction

    notice how sex with an ex is always better than it was before they were an ex. btw try dumping 2or3 rpm in flavored drink and chugging, tastes like crap but it works much faster.

    T, you got that right... ex's will do crazy things in crazy places!

    Day 8

    I'm tweaking my HST a bit here and there. I have to admit, I do find this style of training to be fun. The planning and organization matches my personality quite well. Truth be told, if I would have just looked at it at face value, I would disregard it as BS.

    Today was pull day since I split the routine yesterday. Nothing spectacular to note. Although I'm feeling a bit harder and I'm getting the heralded HST muscle twitches in weird places like triceps and calves.

    Initial stats updated in post #2.

    I held my H-drol gains for about 6 weeks. After post cycle, I switched to Max OT and broke PR's in just about all of my lifts. However, several factors contributed to poor body comp effects including low volume on MaxOT, creatine/sugar bloat, and the back injury. Yes, this stack is leaning me out rather quickly and I'm looking forward to the Phera run after the New Year.

    Day 11

    Monday, November 19

    Supplements: Pumps in the gym are good, libido and sexual performance are enhanced (bagged a REALLY good one yesterday after the pathetic Steeler game), and the puffy/soft feeling (body comp wise) that I've had is fading steadily.

    Edit: I have 4 zits on the face and some mild bacne. I'm skeptical of that there would be any androgenic effect with this stack. Weird thing is, I'm NOT succecptable to breakouts. Maybe 1 zit every 6 months and to have 4 is unhear of.

    HST: I'm starting to realize that every workout is planned so that you will have a successful lift. That makes it easy to be psychologically excited for the day's lift. I recommend this routine for those who are in a rut and max power is not concern.

    Most joints are holding up nicely except for the hands. The frequency of the "pull" lifts which require grip and the everyday tasks of my job are difficult on the fingers. Not sure if this will become problematic or not at this point.

    Thumbs up


    Whew, what a workout. All those heffers that I partied with said to say say "HI" to BigT and RA since they're regulars with you fellas

    Day 16

    Saturday, November 24, 2007

    This stack continues to be worth while. Weight is holding steady but the bodyfat is starting to fade. I haven't gotten the skinfolds done, but if I had to guess, I'd estimate about a 1-2 pound decrease in fatloss with about the same in gained lean mass.

    Noticeable changes are that pumps are lasting much longer after workouts. I'm also getting some monster acne on my shoulders. No increased shedding even though I am VERY susceptible to this. I'd be interested to hear if others have androgenic like sides with nha stacks... I'm skeptical but open to ideas.

    HST routine is working very nicely, especially psychologically. I really like that the workouts are all pre-planned to be successful lifts.

    Off Topic: Had a killer party last night and it made VERY glad that I held off on the cycle. Oh and number 3 on this stack is in the books

    Definitely a great stack. Just started something similar myself. Running it for 6 weeks:

    Test Boosters:
    6 caps Activate Extreme

    Estrogen Control:
    3 caps Alpha Drive XL

    Cortisol Control:
    3 caps Lean Extreme

    Preworkout:
    RPM or Adrenaline

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    How long you running this for?

Everyone who is familiar with my logs can vouch for nothing short of brutally honest feedback- this log is NOT sponsored. I personally like the stack and probably would have run something similar anyway even if there wasn't a sale.

    Supplement Summary:

    Test Boosters:
    4 caps Activate Extreme
    2 caps "old" Activate (to finish off an open bottle)

    Estrogen Control:
    4 caps Alpha Drive XL
    Eform (dosage dependent on subjective feelings of Alpha Drive effectiveness)

    Cortisol Control:
    4 caps Lean Extreme (Reduce XT may play a role when LX runs out)

    Preworkout:
    RPM (dosage dependent on my response)

    Additional Supplements:
    Multi
    Hawthorne Berry
    EFA
    Vitamin C

    Training:
    I took 10 days off after the muscle strain and used that time to read about HST training strategies per advice from Sfearl1. He should be the spokesman for HSN... I don't really like the concepts in the articles very much but that SOB sold me on it As I'm being extra careful to be sure my back is fully healed before I cycle again, I'm basing my routine on the "progressive load" theory and time under tension. Less emphasis/attention is paid to power and specific rep ranges.

    Diet:
    I love the 40/40/20 ratios for convenience. I float from 250/250/50 to 280/280/55. I'm pretty strict with my diet, which rarely gets sloppy.

    Questions, comments, criticism are all welcome as I prefer loosely regulated logs.

    Big T: Cool. I'll take a look at that thread. I've been having good luck alternating Nizarol OTC and Nioxin shampoos with LOTS of conditioner. Looking back, I did have some shedding while on cycle but I'd be just as inclined to say that work schedule stress was the culprit moreso than the halo. I have a pretty cocky nature so the shedding isn't really something that affects my ego and self-esteem like it does to others. I just cut my hair shorter each time

    FatBurner: Looks good. I think I have enough for 8 weeks but maybe not quite 60 days (does that make sense?). I think it takes longer for an nha stack to kick in than the typical 30 days, especially the divanil products... just a hunch, not really based on scientific research.

    Day 17

    Workouts are fun, pump is mediocre, energy is above average, sleep is actually excellent, and it's time to watch some football... life is good

    Yeah, I definitely know what you mean about the divanil products taking some time before they "kick-in". Just on day 5 now.
