X-Reaper and X-Factor: no el sponsoro
I'm not big into logs, but I decided I was going to log this cycle of X-Factor that I am doing. I purchased (2) bottles of X-Factor that came in yesterday and will be using (4) gels each day. This will equate to 50 days @ 1g of AA. Once again I paid for these (2) bottles out of my own pocket.
Here is a breakdown of my day:
7:00am-Wake up, take supplements (including 1 X-Factor gel)+protein
8:00am-Arrive at work
12:00pm-take another X-Factor gel+complex carbs
4:30pm-Work ends+(1 X-Factor gel)
5:00pm-Eat a small meal (40g protein)
5:30pm-6:30pm- Take a nap
7:00pm-Eat another small meal (40g protein)+X-Factor gel
8:30pm-Take stims (approx. 200mg of caffeine.)
9:00pm-At the gym
10:15-10:30pm-Get out of the gym
11:00pm-Drink soymilk/Chicken/other protein (50g-70g of protein), then get ready and go to bed.
I do NOT post-workout with carbs at all.
I start my morning with protein, then integrate carbs at lunch and early afternoon. I stop carbs at 6pm then use 99% protein for the rest of the evening.
Immediately after working out I take ZMA on an empty stomach and wait 30minutes.
I post workout with soy protein and only use soy on workout days. I do not use protein powder as I am lactose intolerant and soy is a good way to post workout as it is fast acting. I follow up by eating chicken or eggs.
As of right now I will be using a 40/40/20 main. ratio. Also I am endomorphic.
I am not following a specific exercise training regiment, I just have a tendency to do 'higher' volume of training.
Other than that I will keep the log very basic and to the point, focusing on X-Factor and not so much 'fluff' per se.
Couple of things to note:
-unless I mention specifically in my log that I didn't hit my meal ratios assume that I did.
-I'll try my best to update this log as often as possible. This is another thing that deters me from doing sponsored logs, b/c at least since this is unsponsored I can update as often as time allows.
-I expect to keep everything consistant the entire time.
Current supps that will be used in the log:
-Glucosamine (when needed)
I've been using Diesel Test for around 5 months straight so I'm going to take a break off the natural test boosters and try this instead.
I am taking a specific interest in AA not because of the 'Oh I'm sore, so that's cool' aspect, but in general the science behind it. I tried X-Factor awhile ago @ 5 gels/ED and wound up having headaches which caused me to use it sporadically. This time I will just run it at 4 gels/ED at a consistant timing/dose.
23 yrs old
I speculate that the true benefit of Archadonic Acid is achieved around 75days and not 50day but who knows.
Let's see how long I can actually stay dedicated to this log. lol.

do people that are LI have a prob w/ egg white protein? If not, why are you using soy and not egg white?
11-28-2007, 11:49 AM
Anyways, the reason why I specifically use soy protein post workout is due to the fairly quick digestive process. Egg digests at a much slower rate vs. soy.
I realize that there is this huge thing about estrogen from soy, etc, etc. IMO, I find the estrogen to be negligible, and would take that over not having some fast acting protein post workout. At the same time that is the only circumstances that I use soy protein. I have been thinking about easing back into my egg protein shakes....I have a lot of tubs left lying around the place.
I also eat whole food prior to going to bed to delay catabolism.

Actually tonight I'm going to play some football outside instead of hitting the treadmill. I haven't played football in quite some time so it'll be interesting to see how good I am....or not good for that matter...haha

Day 2: Update
Last night I was playing football and while I was running with the ball, 2 people simultaneously grabbed me. One person grabbed my legs pivoting me and another person jumped on my left side. As I was falling I put my right arm out to break my fall and sure enough with all the force I cracked both the radius AND the ulna.
This is actually the 5th time I've broken my right arm. The past 4 times were (2) skiing, (1) soccer, (1) tennis, so this is nothing new to me. In fact I don't have a cast, I just have this plaster splinter type set up.
So this basically puts me out of comission for 8 weeks as no upper body is possible with this injury.
Looks like this cycle is gonna have to wait for awhile....hopefully a nice little recomp in 2008.
......Over and out.
p.s. I'm angling my arm weird so I can actually type.

Damn dude. After the 5th break they should coat your skeleton in Adamantium for free.
Heal well, take your Cissus.

I know we have our differences, but that is awful man. There's nothing like a sudden injury to dampen your excitement for a new supp cycle...I literally cringed when I read that.
I was looking forward to seeing what you had to say about your X-Factor experience since I plan on running it after the turn of the year (with Drive, RPM, and some creatine mono). Your reviews usually contain a good level of detail.
Well. Best of luck.

PS Get new friends.
PPS OR wait until you recover, do your 100 days of X-Factor then whoop their asses.
11-29-2007, 03:47 PM
Since the time off that I have is short, I don't think I need to put the X-Factor in the freezer. I'll probably just leave them on the shelves.
Not that this is a good thing, but I've been training very hard for the past several months and this will be a good break....(forced, lol).
I've taken a particular interest in X-Factor (specifically AA) because from researching it, it seems like it is the next best thing since creatine. I was eager to see how things would turn out with it, esp. since it is non-hormonal and its added benefits that it has to offer.
This is gonna have to wait for a while....sheit.
