    Rodja is "Back to Basics" with DCP and X-factor


    To get a solid grasp of what my training entails and my progress the last few months, here is my training log:
    My training/supps leading to 155

    Now, for the task at hand. I want to thank MN, RPN, and Jjohn for this opportunity. I have wanted to try XF for a while now and I have finally gotten the chance. I haven't received the goods, yet, but I wanted to get this log up. DCP dose depends on amount I receive, but XF will be run at the recommended 4 caps/day.

    Other supps:
    Xtend-20g pre/peri WO
    SuperCarb-25g peri WO
    Poseidon-2 scoops pre/peri WO
    Egg/MPI-40-60g/day
    Leucine-5g pre/peri WO
    Napalm (rotated in and out)-2 squirts, 2x/day
    Forskolin-75mg daily
    BA-5g pre/peri WO

    I am beginning to increase my workload, so I am hoping the XF will help with strength and reduce catabolism, while the DCP helps to lean me out. I will post measurements and pics on Monday (gasp, Rodja's gonna show his face).

    I took caliper measurements the other day and my results were: 8mm abdomen, 8mm thigh, 6mm pectoral. My BF% based off this is around 8%, but I really doubt the accuracy of this measurement. That being said, it is one of the parameters I will be using to gauge progress.

    Thanks, they are from years of hard training and good genetics, but I really don't train them like I do my other muscles.

    No, I trained in the 8-10 range, except on squats and walking lunges. Volume was 12 sets for quads, 9 for hams. My routine used to be:
    Quads-squats, unilateral LP, front squats, leg extensions
    Hams-SLDL, walking lunges, lying leg curls

    At their peak, they were slightly over 30" and I weighed around 210 at 5'10".

    Getting into MMA just requires you to start training at an MMA gym and 21 is not too late to start. I didn't start training until I was 21.

    I think the ex-GF does, but I do not speak with her any more. I was about 35 lbs heavier than my current weight, but most of the mass was in my thighs/glutes and my gut.

    Stretching

    Ran 6 miles
    20 mins bag drills

    I think I did too much stretching in my hamstrings because they are very tender and felt something pop near the glute/ham tie-in. Not sure if it was the muscle, scar tissue, or a calcium deposit, but I was unable to do any high-kicks during my bag drills.

    Correct, I have not started the cycle. I am also going to take a few days off becuase I got a fricking stomach virus and my hams are killing me. I can handle soreness, but this is unbearable.

    Very interested in this one - enjoy Rodja.

    I too have similiar training styles, and I'm interested in your endurance/strength in your activities. The main reason I stayed away from XF was due to the DOMS it was known to induce, where I supplement for the quickest recovery possible.

    Really had no base on that though, and I'm hoping your log proves that wrong! From what I've read, you're in for a blast.

    Comments-I wasn't really into this workout; strength wasn't really effected, but muscular endurance was down; hoping to get healthy this weekend for the beginning of this cycle

    And I officially stating that I am staying at the 170 lb weight class because I cannot diet down to 155 lbs without losing considerable size and, therefore, strength. I am still young enough that I will continue to grow into one of the larger fighters at my weight class. I am coasting around in the 175-177 lb range at this moment with a BF% of roughly 9%. With this cycle, I am going to be on a lean bulk, so I will have only a modest increase in kcals (~200 or so) with most coming from fats and protein.
