    X-Factor + MassFX: A Whole New Level

    Hello Folks. This marks the first day of my X-Factor and MassFX Stack. I have yet to receive my XF, but I've got a bottle laying around that I am going to start with. First off, I would like to AX and MN for the opportunity to test X-Factor and the new MassFX. I have used XF twice before this with INCREDIBLE results both times. This should be no different.

    Looking at the New MassFX, I see a lot of stuff I like. I'm a big fan of Turkesterone. I've used Ecdy with moderate results, but the 20% turk I've used was great. So definitely a nice inclusion in the product. Along with that, I love Divanil (Duh!). I'm still on the fence about 25-r, but I'm a fan of White Button Mushroom and Forskolin, so those are great additions as well. Overall, I have very high hopes.


    Training

    I am still working with Buffhunk29 here on AM.com and he is the best guy out there, plain and simple. We are on Phase 5 of the program (18 weeks so far and I have just signed up for 18 more), which consists of monster sets for bodyparts. We will do anywhere from 3-5 exercises of the same bodypart all in a row, with no rest. Contrary to some views, this has added strength about as well as anything I have ever done. Really quite incredible. Phase 6, which we will hit pretty soon, will be a combo of the major supersets and strength training. All in all, the workouts are intense and I never leave the gym feeling I have anything left in the tank.


    Nutrition

    Nutrition is basic. I eat a very balanced diet. Don't really cheat at all. Just pounding down a lot of food. I'm around 3700 calories a day right now, so we will see if I need to adjust that or not.

    Stats

    All Measurements cold in the AM.

    Weight - 187
    BF% - 13
    Height - 6'0"
    Chest - 39 Inches
    Waist - 33 Inches
    Biceps (Flexed) - 14.5

  3. Day 1

    Today's Supplementation

    Creatine Monohydrate - 5 grams
    Beta Alanine - 4 Grams
    XF - 4 caps

    Workout = CHEST!

    I'm home right now for spring break, so I was back at the hometown gym. I won't detail my workouts entirely: A.) because this is a supplement log and B.) because Heath is the man, and I don't need to be giving away his training ideas/system.

    Highlight of the workout was a solid 10 reps of 175 on the bench, nice and slow. Today was set up 3 chest exercises back to back to back, for three sets. Then 3 more with the same setup. The last "cycle" consisted of 5 exercises, but was only done twice. Overall, had an incredible workout. Energy was sky high and one of the best buddies came up for the weekend to train with me. He loved the workout as well.

    Strength
    [****-]

    For supersetting so many exercises, strength was very good. The lowest rep total I hit for anything today was 10, so not really in the "strength" range, but more hypertrophy and endurance (15+ on some).

    Stamina / Endurance
    [****-]

    Very good. Beta-Alanine is king for this. I have been on it for about 5 weeks at this point, so it is kicking in nicely. Overall, very pleased with endurance today.

    Energy / Focus
    [****-]

    Could always have been a bit better, but when working out with a friend (which I rarely do), it is hard to be completely tuned in. I love helping this kid out though and really enjoy talking to him about training/diet, as he actually listens to what I say. How about that...

    Pumps / Vascularity
    [***--]

    Nothing really to note. Chest was full as heck, but nothing out of the ordinary, especially when doing high reps + supersets.

    Recovery
    [N/A]

    Other Observations / Comments

    Not too much else to note. I've got arms tomorrow. I'm really excited to get this underway. My goal is to hit 200 (or close to it) by the end of this log. With the attention I pay to my diet, sleep, and the intensity I put into training, I feel like I have everything in place to do just that.

    Everyone hop on board, this train is headed to 200 town.

    Cool!!!!! I'm so glad. After all you are working so hard in the gym, glad to see the scars are gone!

  10. Day 2

    Today's Supplementation

    Creatine Monohydrate - 5 grams
    Beta Alanine - 4 Grams
    XF - 4 caps
    Orange Xtend - 4 Scoops Intra-Workout

    Workout = Arms

    Got to do what I like to call the "vanity workout". Today marked the start of the low volume/high volume days. Heavy Bicep/Tricep stuff, and then a major superset of 5 exercises to really finish it off.

    Highlights: Barbell Curls - 100X5. Overhead DB Extension - 75X8.

    Pretty solid stuff tonight. Normally I'm not sweating to badly after an arms workout, but tonight I was very warm (something to note, although I doubt it is XF this early). The gym was pretty crowded and it is quite small.

    I will say that I got a LOT of questions today. I wear earphones, but people constantly come up to me and say: "you man, what do you do to get that big?". I had my Xtend in a gallon jug of "light block" milk, so I joked with a couple guys that I just drink a gallon of 1% every workout...I think one of them actually believed me.

    Strength
    [*****]

    For arms day, pretty damn good. 100X5 on the Barbell curls was a new mark for me. Done with pretty good form also. I wasn't absolutely still, but there was minimal movement. Triceps felt good as well, and I love overhead extensions. The 75 pound DB felt pretty light, but I'd never done it before, so I took it kind of easy.

    Stamina / Endurance
    [*****]

    Endurance was great today. Didn't have to lower the weight for anything, even amidst all the supersets, short rest periods, and overall fairly high volume. I will say that I train with about as much volume as anyone else I know. People say the whole "overtraining" line to me a lot, but I've grown more like this than ever before, so I won't be stopping anytime soon. I get 8-10 hours of sleep and night and I sit in class all day, so I'm always well rested.

    Energy / Focus
    [****-]

    Pretty spot on. You will rarely see me put 5 stars up here, but tonight was very good. Definitely in the zone, but I felt like I could have always been a little more in tune with everything. We will see.

    Pumps / Vascularity
    [*****]

    No question five stars today. While doing forearm curls, I had huge veins on the backside of my forearm that started at the hand and traveled all the way to my delt....pretty sweet.

    Recovery
    [****-]

    Chest definitely feels "worked", but not the debilitating soreness that most people would experience after hitting up 24+ sets.

    Other Observations / Comments

    Still early in the log. Great workout though. I will be keeping an eye on my sleep patterns while on XF. My first cycle I slept GREAT. On the second, I had a little trouble near the midway point for a couple weeks until I moved my dosing earlier in the day. We'll see how that goes.

    Also, as I noted before, body-temp will be kept on check. I'd actually be quite pleased if my body temp were to increase a little. Even when I have the hardest of workouts, I will fail to break a sweat...Except for legs.

  11. I tried mass fx and did not get any results from it. I figured if anyone would it would be me since it is a test booster and I'm 42 yrs old. I even went down on a few lifts while on mass fx.

    I have ten years of training and proper diet under my belt that was well researched over and over so its not like I don't know the basics.

    Kinda frustrating too when you read all these post about the new mass fx and what its doing for them.

    I guess I'm alone here?

    I liked the old one. This is a newer version which differs pretty greatly from the old.

    How much did you weigh when you ran it?

  13. Started @ 183 and ended @ 182.

    I haved stayed between 180-190 for the past 5 years. Seems the only thing that works for me is PH/DS.

    The post(s) that i read where everyone is just so in love with Mass Fx is in reference to the new Mass Fx. These are from AnabolicXtreme website so it makes me wonder.

    Either way i paid good money *again* on something that did not work. I'm thinking about ditching the supplement scene all together.

  14. Definitely subscribed for this.

    Interesting. Have you had your test levels checked? Just wondering. At 42, I'd be curious to see where I was at. These supplements certainly aren't ph/ds, but for those of us that don't want to use that stuff, they certainly have some merit.

    Also, this log will be completely unbiased (Although I already know I LOVE XF). Regarding the MassFX though, I'll tell you what I honestly think.

    I've got a legs update coming later (GREAT workout), but I've got to go out to dinner with my uncle first.

    Another note, sleep last night was AWFUL. I was in bed for 9 hours....2 of which were spent sleeping. Not sure why, probably just coincidence. I just got my ZMT in though. Supplementing magnesium with XF has always made a huge difference for me.

  17. haiz69,

    Have not had test levels checked as of late. I'm sure they are lower than yours. Just looking at your age. That being the case, I would think a test booster (Mass Fx) would give more dynamic results since I'm 42. Mass Fx raises your test, no?

    I'm not sure how you are going to read results from Mass Fx if you are stacking with other supps.

    As a stand alone Mass Fx did nothing for me. Oddly, I think I'm the only one on anabolic minds with zero results.

    Funny thing though. When I ordered the new Mass Fx, AnabolicXtreme sent me two caps of StimX. Looking back on how I felt after the StimX (great!), I wish they gave me a whole bottle of StimX and only two caps of Mass Fx, lol!

    StimX and some of their old PH's rock so I know AX can deliver the goodies. That is why I'm perplexed with Mass Fx.

    Hmm. The new FX is more than just a test booster. I'd classify it as more of a "pro-anabolic", in that it has more than just test-boosting ingredients (Turkesterone, Forskolin (Granted this has test related properties too))

    As for differentiating effects, I have used XF twice before, so I know what to expect.

  19. Day 3

    Today's Supplementation

    Creatine Monohydrate - 5 grams
    Beta Alanine - 4 Grams
    XF - 4 caps
    Orange Xtend - 4 Scoops Intra-Workout

    Workout = Legs

    Coming off of a broken toe, this was the first time I have trained legs in 3 weeks. I felt like I really needed to punish myself as a result. I did:

    Monster Set 1: 15 Front Squats --> 10 DB RDL's -- Back to back 5 times through with NO rest in between anything. I could have left after this, but I decided to do more.

    Monster Set 2: 20 Close Leg Press --> 12 Single Leg Curls --> 10 Leg Extentions -- Done back to back to back, 5 times through, no rest.

    WOW. Pretty damn painful.

    Strength
    [***--]

    No really sure I can even rate strength on this one. Used light weight to really get great stimulation. I also chose a weight that I wouldn't have to lower throughout the entire monster set.

    Stamina / Endurance
    [*****]

    Incredible once again. Looking back, the number of sets I did (all of this was done in under 30 minutes), was just crazy for the amount of time I had. I barely stopped the entire time I was there.

    Energy / Focus
    [*****]

    Gotta give this five stars today. I was really amped to train legs and I actually hit up some stimx preworkout that I bought. GREAT stuff. Definitely in the zone.

    Pumps / Vascularity
    [size=+1-size]

    Quads were definitely full. My legs aren't really that veiny, so I don't really expect to see much of that on lower body days.

    Recovery
    [***--]

    Triceps felt reasonably sore today. They recover pretty quickly though. Biceps feel fine. Chest feels great for hitting it hard two days ago.

    Other Observations / Comments

    Not too much else to note. Had a great dinner at a seafood place in town. I canned a 12oz tuna steak with roasted potatoes and asparagus. Solid meal.

    Other than that things are going well. I really hope to get a decent amount of sleep tonight so that I can work on a 15 page paper due next week (on the politics of medicare...).

    Tomorrow will be an off day for some R&R. Off days are hard for me to handle, especially when I am home and have nothing else to do. Although, it should force me to work on this paper.

    About the song of the day, I'm friends with the guys in this band and have actually recorded music with them before (Yeah..I try to be a musician sometimes). I suggest you guys give it a listen. It REALLY chills me out when I need it. Plus, the guys are absolutely ridiculous.

    Today's Supplementation

    Beta Alanine - 4 Grams
    XF - 4 caps

    OFF

    I Hate off days...with a passion.

    [*****]

    Felt pretty strong today. I was able to pick my 190 pound self out of bed...Sweet.

    Stamina / Endurance
    [*****]

    Endurance...Five stars. Played guitar for 6 hours in a row to avoid writing my paper. Damn Beta-Alanine.

    Energy / Focus
    [-----]

    No stars for focus on my paper...or anything for that matter.

    Pumps/Vascularity
    [***--]

    Pretty Good actually.

    Recovery
    [*****]

    This is relatively serious. Feel Great actually.

  24. Thanks for the comments guys.

    As for the leg workout, yeah, it was pretty insane. My legs have ALWAYS been the largest bodypart of mine, so I have really toned down the "hypertrophy" stuff for them. I am now trying to focus on more endurance/"metabolic" workouts for them. Seems to be working quite nicely.

    I'm really looking forward to throwing MassFX in here. Should be fun. Really excited for the Turk.

  25. Day 5

    Today's Supplementation

    Creatine Mono - 5 Grams
    Beta Alanine - 4 Grams
    XF - 4 caps
    Orange Xtend - 4 Scoops Intra Workout

    Workout - Shoulders

    Today marked my first shoulder workout in 6 weeks where I have ventured back into lower rep training. It was a nice test to see how much progress I made on strength from training strictly from 10-20 reps. I can say without a doubt that the high rep/endurance training absolutely made my strength fly upwards. Some highlights:

    Seated Military DB Press - 65 Pound DB's for 6 Reps.
    Behind Head Military Press - 115X8

    Everything else felt great as well. I had two cycles of lower-rep stuff (6-8) and 1 monster cycle of 12 rep stuff. Overall, I was extremely happy with the entire workout.

    Strength
    [*****]

    DB Press felt great. I feel like I could hit 70's for 5-6 reps next time around. Time will tell.

    Stamina / Endurance
    [*****]

    Five stars here as well. I think I ended up with over 20 sets, which seems like a lot to most, but my recovery is top notch and my strength lasted throughout the entire workout.

    Energy / Focus
    [****-]

    During my long workouts, maintaining intensity is extremely important. I was able to blast through the entire workout in just under 45 mintues. Focus was spot on and I had to force myself to take breaks.

    Pumps/Vascularity
    [****-]

    Nice increase here. Veins are starting to pop out of my delts = score. Pretty pleased with that. Forearm and upper arm veins are better than ever. Even had some chest veins making an appearance today.

    Pumps were great. By the end of the workout, it looked like I had a couple cannonballs to either side of my head.

    Recovery
    [****-]

    Legs are quite sore, but they are always sore and thats how I like them. Everything else feels great.

    Other Observations / Comments

    Glad to be back in the gym today. The rest of the day will see me eat a ton of food and sit around writing a paper...pretty easy stuff. I can practically feel myself growing.

    Song of the Day - Metallica - Minus Human (S&M)

    Thanks. At this point, all of the "gains" are just me retesting my strength at the lower reps. I won't really be looking for anything concrete until days 15-20.

    Although, If I could get some comments from Sinner/Jjohn. What do you guys think about me adding in another bottle of MassFX and dosing it a tad higher, say 6 caps? I've already purchased it, but I won't do anything unless you guys okay it.

    I feel to get the best of the turk, it should be dosed around there, but I'll definitely do 4 if thats how you want it done.
