    That's right boys and girls. SilentBob has been given the opportunity by one of the newest board members, Core Nutrionals, to log their comprehensive pre and intraworkout formula Core ABC.

    Core ABC




    Quote Originally Posted by CoreABC
    Core ABC uses the most effective, established ratio (2:1:1) of branch-chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine), to improve recovery and build muscle. Glutamine is included to help keep the body in a muscle-building state during training, while beta-alanine and citrulline malate are included in liberal amounts to help improve endurance Beta-alanine reduces lactic acid buildup and increases skeletal muscle carnosine levels, while citrulline malate reduces lactic acid buildup and ammonia concentration, at the same time increasing nitric oxide (NO) and ATP production.

    Core ABC should be taken before and during training, but can also be taken at other times throughout the day to maximize its effectiveness.

    A - 10 grams of branch-chain Amino Acids Leucine (5 grams), Isoleucine (2.5 grams), and Valine (2.5 grams) to enhance recovery and build muscle by helping promote protein synthesis. The amino acid Glutamine is also included to help maintain a positive nitrogen balance during intense training.

    B - 2.5 grams of Beta-Alanine, which has been shown to increase skeletal muscle carnosine levels that delay the onset of fatigue and enhance endurance by reducing lactic acid buildup and increasing aerobic efficiency.

    C - 2.5 grams of Citrulline Malate to reduce lactic acid and ammonia concentrations while increasing nitric oxide (NO) and ATP production.
    Appologies-----------------

    I'm gonna have to go ahead and appologize to Palo Alto Labs, Incarnate has been good to me, but for the sake of this log, I'm going to have to cease and desist my dosing.

    Additional appologies go out to Scivation. Nothing but love for you guys and Xtend, but I'm gonna have to lay off for a while.
    ---------------------------

    Dosing schedule------------

    I think I'll stick to the pre and intra dosing initially and then adjust from there. Possibly include a 3rd serving later in the day or immediately post workout for the sake of the Beta-Alanine.
    ---------------------------

    Product rating-------------

    I'll be rating CORE ABC on the following:

    Muscle Building/Sparing: Since I'm working on recomp (see below) rating this may be a little difficult. If I lose weight, I'll rate muscle sparing on wether or not I've lost any strength. If I gain weight, I'll rate muscle building.

    Endurace: My workouts run about 1 hour to 90 minutes. I do start to feel out of gas towards the end.

    Recovery: Am I sore the next day. Recently I've been pushing myself further and I do feel a little soreness the following days. I'll be rating whether or not I'm sore the next day.

    Taste: Nadda importante. Taste is simply icing on the cake. If it tastes good, it tastes good. If not, that doesn't take away from what the product is. (I use vanilla ON with no sweeteners added. Tastes like cardboard, but it has the most servings.)
    ---------------------------

    Other Supplements---------

    -I am currently taking MVP/ZMK from MST as my multivitamin.
    -I am taking ~10g of Carlson's fish oil daily yielding ~5g EPA and ~3g DHA.
    -I am taking 1 Gut Health nightly. Needs no introduction on this forum. Also taking digestive enzymes. Otherwise I'm considered a fire hazard in 37 states.
    -I am taking Perfect Food by Garden of Life. I don't eat all the veggies that I know I should and this product helps with providing additional alkaline substance into my body. PH is impt.
    -I am also a week and a half in to Anabolic Pump and Powerfull. If requested by Core, I can cease and desist these products.
    -Other supplements include AMP, LevR, and other stims. These aren't taken regularly, only for that extra gas when I'm not feeling 100%.
    ---------------------------

    Diet-----------------------

    Eggs, egg whites, wheat bread, EVOO based margarine, Natty PB, green beans, ON Whey, Oats, Kwik Karb, Peanuts, Almonds, Walnuts, Cashews, Steak, Ground Beef, Chicken breasts, potatoes, brown rice, etc. etc. etc.

    Usually treat myself to one dirty cheat meal a week, sometimes it's more like every other week. Sometimes you just don't feel like it, ya know?
    ---------------------------

    Stats----------------------
    (Taken after dinner, so yeah)

    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 195lb (belly full of food, will update in the morning for accurate reading)
    bf%: ~15-17%

    Chest: 42" (just above nips)
    Neck: 16" (just above traps)

    Waist: 35" (@ navel)
    Thighs: 25"

    Arm: 15.25"
    Forearm: 12"
    Wrist: 7"

    Will try to get pics uploaded this week.
    ---------------------------

    Goals----------------------

    Recomp Baby. My goals during this log are to increase lean mass while reducing bodyfat. My main focus is going to be to increase the lean mass so I'm not worried if my food intake results in more than just lean gains. I'm eating ~3000 calories a day so with good ole fashion lifting I should be able to add the lean I'm looking for.
    ---------------------------

    Training-------------------

    Due to school, my 'week' starts on fridays.

    Friday: Legs
    Saturday: Chest/Tris
    Sunday: Back/Bis
    Monday: Off
    Tuesday: Legs
    Wednesday: Shoulders
    Thursday: Off

    I am hitting legs twice a week because I like legs. I think it's spaced out enough to allow for proper recovery. On my off days I'll occasionally throw in some ab work at the house.

    I also try to get in 15-30 minutes of cardio post workout if time is permitting. It usually is but some days I have work after training and I run out of time.
    ---------------------------

    About Me------------------

    I work at a supplement store so I am usually getting discount proteins or discount support supps. Nothing beats 50 cent vitamin C. I love training and the opportunity to try new products. I have a somewhat random sense of humor.

    I've been learning as much as I can since I joined up here in December and feel I've met some really awesome people. It feels good being a part of a community that promotes and lives the liftstyle. You sometimes get a little jaded when you wait on countless customers who are getting gastic bypasses, looking for protien "that's not for building muscle," looking for dat der Cell Tech or NO Xplode, or who want a fat burner yet only eat twice a day.
    ---------------------------

    My hands are tired. I've got a sick pump going in my wrists from all this typing...i centainly hope people show up
    And if you actually read all of that, reps are coming

    Alright, shoulders this morning in my PE Class so I only had so much time to lift but I got a litte work in.

    Supersetting shoulder machine:
    Arnold Press: 20x20, 50x8, 55x8, 60x6, 65x4
    Bent-over Rear Delt Raises: 10x10, 10x10, 10x10, 15x8, 15x8
    Lateral Raises: 10x10, 10x10, 10x10, 15x8, 15x8
    Front Delt Raises: 10x10, 10x10, 10x10, 15x8, 15x8

    Normally after I finish my SSM sets I do shrugs and bradford press, but there was an intervention.

    The instructor sucker punched us with 15 minutes left in class with his own mandatory exercises. PUSHUPS! YAY! I haven't been doing shoulders all morning this should be fun. We were timed for 1 minute, I only got 50 cause my shoulders were already on fire.

    Ab-work. We did an array of ab exercises; crunches, bicycles, jack-knives, V-ups, obliques, side/front bridges.

    Product first impressions----

    I was given the grape flavored CoreABC. Upon opening the jar I was to discover that this product smells like a mix between grape juice and wine, which to me, really isn't a bad thing.

    The taste, was almost exactly the same as the smell. The main flavor is that of a semi-sweet grape juice with a hint of red wine in the background of the pallet. I took it pre and post today so I just pounded it down. I didn't really get a chance to savor the flavor intra-workout.

    Bottom line:
    Core ABC is providing 4 commonly purchased bulk items at a more than reasonable price. Per container you're getting 500g of BCAA (2:1:1,) 125g Beta-Alanine, 125g Citruline Malate, and 125g Glutamine.

    To compare,
    500g of BCAA from NP is $22.99
    100g of BA from NP is $7.95
    100g of CM from NP is $12.00
    100g of Glutamine from NP is $4.95
    Your total for the bulk items is $47.89

    CoreABC is available on NP for $44.95
    And if you're already buying bulks, flavor isn't a selling point to you anyway
    ---------------------------

    I'll update later today. See if my shoulders are still holding together. They're doing fine right now. I could do a little more at work. We've got bands and whatnot in the break room (living the lifestyle.)

    Today was an off day. I took a serving when I woke up this morning about 15 minutes before breakfast and again this afternoon on an empty stomach.

    My abs are still slightly sore. Just goes to show that I don't dedicate enough time to them.

    I had an epiphany today in class that made me think I'm an idiot. I fixed the measurement of my thighs, they are 25" each. Yeah if they were 39" I'd probably be up in the Canadian wilderness kicking over trees for a logging company.

    Tomorrow is leg day. It's an off day from powerfull so I shouldn't have any drowziness issues in the gym. Not stuck in gym class either so I'll be able to get a full workout in.

    Day 3:

    Today was leg day. Took my Core ABC pre and intra workout today.

    Squats: 95x20, 115x20, 135x15, 135x10
    One legged calf-raises: 60x15, 60x15, 75x15, 75x15, 90x10, 90x10
    Calf-raises: 180x20
    Tibalis anterior raises: 25x30, 30x25, 35x20, 40x15
    Leg Curls: 85x10, 100x10, 115x10, 130x8, 145x6
    Leg Press (High and wide): 275x10, 365x10, 455x10, 135x20
    Squats (Smith Machine): 135x10, 185x5, 225x5, 275x5, 295x3, 305x1

    Cardio:

    Elliptical: 15min, lvl 10, alternated 2 min @ 5-7 followed by 2 min @ 8-10.

    Narrative:

    20 rep squats are no joke. I knew it'd be a good idea to start light, but even so, I was humbled. On my set of 135 I had to stop at 15. I couldn't live with myself if I just did 5 more after that to call it 20, so instead I did 10 more for good measure.

    High and wide foot position on leg press allows me to hit my glutes and hammies. It works for now but I may switch to something else in a few months.

    The only bad thing about leg day is standing up at work for 9 hours after lifting

    I just finished up dinner, 6 eggs (3 whole, 3 whites,) reckon I'll pound down some fish oil, have some pysllium and call it a night. Cheers folks.

    Day 4:

    Chest/Tris

    Incline DB Press: 50x8, 60x8, 70x8, 80x5, 70x8
    super setted with
    Incline DB Flies: 20x10x5

    Flat DB Press: 40x8, 50x8, 60x8, 70x8, 50x8
    super setted with
    Flat DB Flies: 20x10x5

    Seated Tricep Extensions: 50x10, 60x10, 70x10, 80x10
    super setted with
    Skull Crushers: 65x10x3, 65x8
    super setted with
    Close grip bench(EZ curl): 65x10x4
    super setted with
    Dips: 10, 6, 10, 10

    Cardio:
    16 minutes stationary bike, alternated 2 minutes at 80/90rpm and 2 minutes 95-110rpm.

    Narrative:

    I'm slowly building up my numbers on include. Last week I think I got the 80s up 3 times so I'm happy with 5. I'm sure I could go heavier if I started heavy, but we'll leave that for a later day.

    Super setting presses with light weight flies is intense. The 20lbs are starting to get too easy, I'll move up to 25s of 30s next week.

    Regarding the CoreABC, my legs feel fine after leg day. They were burning a little during the bike, but that's expected. I'm really starting to like the taste of grape.

    Core ABC






    Appologies-----------------

    I'm gonna have to go ahead and appologize to Palo Alto Labs, Incarnate has been good to me, but for the sake of this log, I'm going to have to cease and desist my dosing.

    Additional appologies go out to Scivation. Nothing but love for you guys and Xtend, but I'm gonna have to lay off for a while.
    ---------------------------

    Dosing schedule------------


    I think I'll stick to the pre and intra dosing initially and then adjust from there. Possibly include a 3rd serving later in the day or immediately post workout for the sake of the Beta-Alanine.
    ---------------------------

    Product rating-------------

    I'll be rating CORE ABC on the following:

    Muscle Building/Sparing: Since I'm working on recomp (see below) rating this may be a little difficult. If I lose weight, I'll rate muscle sparing on wether or not I've lost any strength. If I gain weight, I'll rate muscle building.

    Endurace: My workouts run about 1 hour to 90 minutes. I do start to feel out of gas towards the end.

    Recovery: Am I sore the next day. Recently I've been pushing myself further and I do feel a little soreness the following days. I'll be rating whether or not I'm sore the next day.

    Taste: Nadda importante. Taste is simply icing on the cake. If it tastes good, it tastes good. If not, that doesn't take away from what the product is. (I use vanilla ON with no sweeteners added. Tastes like cardboard, but it has the most servings.)
    ---------------------------

    Other Supplements---------

    -I am currently taking MVP/ZMK from MST as my multivitamin.
    -I am taking ~10g of Carlson's fish oil daily yielding ~5g EPA and ~3g DHA.
    -I am taking 1 Gut Health nightly. Needs no introduction on this forum. Also taking digestive enzymes. Otherwise I'm considered a fire hazard in 37 states.
    -I am taking Perfect Food by Garden of Life. I don't eat all the veggies that I know I should and this product helps with providing additional alkaline substance into my body. PH is impt.
    -I am also a week and a half in to Anabolic Pump and Powerfull. If requested by Core, I can cease and desist these products.
    -Other supplements include AMP, LevR, and other stims. These aren't taken regularly, only for that extra gas when I'm not feeling 100%.
    ---------------------------

    Diet-----------------------

    Eggs, egg whites, wheat bread, EVOO based margarine, Natty PB, green beans, ON Whey, Oats, Kwik Karb, Peanuts, Almonds, Walnuts, Cashews, Steak, Ground Beef, Chicken breasts, potatoes, brown rice, etc. etc. etc.

    Usually treat myself to one dirty cheat meal a week, sometimes it's more like every other week. Sometimes you just don't feel like it, ya know?

    ---------------------------

    Goals----------------------

    Recomp Baby. My goals during this log are to increase lean mass while reducing bodyfat. My main focus is going to be to increase the lean mass so I'm not worried if my food intake results in more than just lean gains. I'm eating ~3000 calories a day so with good ole fashion lifting I should be able to add the lean I'm looking for.
    ---------------------------

    Training-------------------

    Due to school, my 'week' starts on fridays.

    Friday: Legs
    Saturday: Chest/Tris
    Sunday: Back/Bis
    Monday: Off
    Tuesday: Legs
    Wednesday: Shoulders
    Thursday: Off

    I am hitting legs twice a week because I like legs. I think it's spaced out enough to allow for proper recovery. On my off days I'll occasionally throw in some ab work at the house.

    I also try to get in 15-30 minutes of cardio post workout if time is permitting. It usually is but some days I have work after training and I run out of time.
    ---------------------------

    About Me------------------

    I work at a supplement store so I am usually getting discount proteins or discount support supps. Nothing beats 50 cent vitamin C. I love training and the opportunity to try new products. I have a somewhat random sense of humor.

    I've been learning as much as I can since I joined up here in December and feel I've met some really awesome people. It feels good being a part of a community that promotes and lives the liftstyle. You sometimes get a little jaded when you wait on countless customers who are getting gastic bypasses, looking for protien "that's not for building muscle," looking for dat der Cell Tech or NO Xplode, or who want a fat burner yet only eat twice a day.
    ---------------------------

    My hands are tired. I've got a sick pump going in my wrists from all this typing...i centainly hope people show up
    And if you actually read all of that, reps are coming

    Narrative:

    It was rainy all day and I didn't get to lift until after work, which I was running late for so I didn't bring enough food. Good thing I had a big bag of nuts in a drawer. About to have a massive recovery meal. Spaghetti for the win!

    Tomorrow is an off day. I feel like running though since I ran out of time today.

    Appologies-----------------

    I'm gonna have to go ahead and appologize to Palo Alto Labs, Incarnate has been good to me, but for the sake of this log, I'm going to have to cease and desist my dosing.

    Additional appologies go out to Scivation. Nothing but love for you guys and Xtend, but I'm gonna have to lay off for a while.
    ---------------------------

    Dosing schedule------------


    I think I'll stick to the pre and intra dosing initially and then adjust from there. Possibly include a 3rd serving later in the day or immediately post workout for the sake of the Beta-Alanine.
    ---------------------------

    Product rating-------------

    I'll be rating CORE ABC on the following:

    Muscle Building/Sparing: Since I'm working on recomp (see below) rating this may be a little difficult. If I lose weight, I'll rate muscle sparing on wether or not I've lost any strength. If I gain weight, I'll rate muscle building.

    Endurace: My workouts run about 1 hour to 90 minutes. I do start to feel out of gas towards the end.

    Recovery: Am I sore the next day. Recently I've been pushing myself further and I do feel a little soreness the following days. I'll be rating whether or not I'm sore the next day.

    Due to schoolin I wasn't able to hit the gym today. Will do Legs & Shoulders tomorrow. I did however obtain a camera so I can take some semi-before shots.

    It would have been nice to have this back in September when I was 30lb heavier, but this is as good a place to start as any. Scale currently says 192lb.

    I didn't have time to unpack my "300: Mark of the Spartan airbrush after-effects" filter, but I may trace some abs on with MSPaint...you know...for the ladies.

    Had to run for 30 minutes in gym class before I was able to lift, nothing like lifting tired. Without further ado.

    Day 8: Legs

    Squats: 95x10, 135x10, 135x10, 185x8, 205x6, 225x6

    One Legged Calf Raises: 75x10(4x) 90(4x) 115(x4)
    Calf Raises: 180x10, 210x10

    High & Wide Legpress: 275x10, 365x10, 455x8, 185x15

    One Legged Calf Raises: 60x10(x2)

    Squats: 135x15

    Narrative: I don't like cardio before lifting. Not one bit. I added 50g of WMS to my intra CoreABC and that definately helped out a lot.

    Day 9: Off

    I hate off days. On off days, I think about what I'm going to do on my on days. Thursdays are brutal, class from 11:45am until 10pm at night. I did get a paper written this afternoon though, so that's something. Anyway, lifting tomorrow morning before work.

    Rockin' out tonight. I saw these guys...wow, 8 years ago. I feel old The song still kicks ass.

    Day 10: Chest/Tris

    Incline DB Bench: 50x8, 60x8, 70x8, 80x5, 85x5
    super-setted with
    Incline DB Flies: 20x10x5

    Wide Grip Bench(HammerS): 140x8, 180x8, 230x8, 270x5, 320x3

    Seated Tricep Extension: 50x10, 60x10, 70x10, 80x10
    super-setted with
    Skull Crushers: 65x8x4
    super-setted with
    Close-grip Flat bench: 65x10x4
    super-setted with
    Dips: Bodyweightx10x4

    Wide Grip Bench(HammerS): 140x15

    Narrative: No cardio today. I'm slacking on that, ran out of time again due to work. I think that I prefer DBs to machines. Sure 320lb looks good, but it doesn't feel as good at a couple 80 pounders tearing your chest to shreds. That being said, I kinda wish I had a do-over for today. Anyone else ever feel like that?

    Tomorrow is gonna be back and bis. I'm going to get away from machines and cables and just stick to free weights. I may have to use em for lat pull downs but we'll see what I can come up with otherwise.

    Day 11: Back/Bis

    Bent Over Two-DB Row: 20x10, 30x10
    One Arm DB Row(both sides): 20x10, 30x10, 40x10, 50x10, 60x10, 70x10
    Good Mornings: 45x10, 65x10, 95x10, 115x10, 135x10
    Lat Pulldown: 60x15, 100x8, 120x8, 140x6, 160x6
    High Row: 100x15, 120x10

    Hammer Curls: 20x20, 30x16, 20x20
    super-setted with
    Incline DB Curls: 20x20, 30x16, (20x10 + 20x10 30 second rest b/w sets)
    super-setted with
    supine grip curls (EZ bar): 55x10x3

    SLDL: 45x15, 65x10, 95x10, 115x10, 135x10, 135x10

    Narrative:

    Today was the first day I've done DB rows in a long time. I like the way they feel. I'm such a slacker when it comes to cardio. It stinks when I can't fit it in before work. Sure I could wake up earlier, but that would just make too much sense.

    I do like the benefits of the CoreABC. For me, switching from incarnate and xtend to CoreABC and not noticing a difference in my recovery times is a very good thing.

    I'm hardly ever sore from my training and that's carried over to while being on this product as well. It's not for lack of trying either. I try to create super sets and whatnot to seriously destroy my body and I'm recovering very well.

    As an aside I fired up my George Foreman for the first time tonight and cooked my three boneless/skinless chicken breats. I reckon I know what I'm having for breakfast and lunch tomorrow.

    Narrative: At work we had a masseuse set up for a few hours for the customers. Needless to say, I partook as well. Felt good. Especially after back day (which by the way, wasn't sore at all thanks to CoreABC.) Leg day, always a fun one. Figured I'd try super setting everything with something else. Felt great. Broke a sweat on the 4th set and never stopped. Chased my workout with some CoreABC mixed with WMS followed by 3 eggs, 2 egg whites, and a chicken breast. MMM mmm good. Have a 30 minute run in the morning, so I figured I wouldn't push myself too hard, esp. since it's legs.

    Song of the Day:
