I was picked by JJohn (much thanks) as a tester for XFactor, Drive, and. I would also like to thank all of the people at App Nut. as well.
I am still trying to figure out how exactly I am going to run this, but I have 2 100 count bottles of XFactor so running 4 caps a day would yield 50 days which is what I plan on doing. The RPM I will be running at 4 caps per day, 2 110 count bottles will last 55 days, and then Drive 2 110 count bottles at 7 caps per day will last 31 days. I do plan on working my way up dosing wise on the Drive, as I do tend to get GI issues, so for the first week I am going to slowly.
As far as timing goes, the XFactor will be taken with 4 meals taken as even as possible apart. RPM will be 1 hour pre workout as directed and then on non workout days I will take it in the afternoon. Drive will be 4 caps with breakfast, and 3 caps 1 hour pre workout. Starting out I will do 1 cap with breakfast and 2 caps pre workout and work my way up from there.
I weighed in today at 208lbs, still a bit shy from where I was before. My training is as follows:
Monday: Legs (usually consists of Squats, incline leg presses, leg extensions, leg curls, and various calf raises)
Tuesday: Biceps, Triceps, Delts (tomorrow will be my first day with a new program for this that I am getting from WNBF Mr. Universe Jim Cordova who is a good friend of mine and has been helping me out with training)
Thursday: Chest (I do various DB presses at different angles each time, 3 exercises, 3 sets each, then I finish with various angle chest fly's, where I will do 6-7 sets)
Friday: Back (again, I will be working with Jim on a new routine for my back)
I will weigh in weekly, usually on Monday's and report any changes. I will also be keeping a close eye on the mirror and how my clothes fit. At this time, I wear a 36x36 pant, and depending on the cut of the shirt and shoulders, either XL or XXL. If I had to guess my bodyfat % now, I would say I am in between 10-12% based off my avatar (please let me know if I am off on this). I am very vascular so any changes in BF I should be able to tell pretty easy.
Other supps taken will be the normal for me, daily multi vitamin, glucosomine, and PSlin before workouts. Other than that, nothing will be added or changed with my daily supplements for the duration of this log.
I am overhauling my diet a bit, but the basis is staying the same.
Upon waking I drink 2 scoops of whey protein in skim milk. Shortly thereafter I eat a MetRX MRP bar. 2 hours after that, I have 2 more scoops of whey protein and a carb source either oatmeal or a bagel. Lunch always consists of a Sam's club sized helping of chicken fried rice. Pre workout is 2 scoops of whey protein, skim milk, and a sweet potato or cheerios. Post workout consists of 70g powdered gatorade with 5g creatine mono, and 2 scoops of whey protein. Dinner differs each night, but I stay with either a chicken breast or steak for protein source, and hash browns or pasta for my carb source.
As stated, I will start this as of tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled. If anyone has any questions or thoughts on why I should change something, please let me know and I will look into it. I am pretty in tune with my body and know what works for me and what doesnt. I am an ectomorph and can get away eating alot of stuff without putting on fat (as seen in my signature and under the Pics section of the forum).
Off to the races gentlemen (and ladies)!
