    Rodja's Drive/XF Log


    I horribly estimated when I would receive my stack so I am starting another log. I will post pics and starting measurements tomorrow. My training has been altered recently as I am in a semi-hiatus from MMA. I am still training MMA, but my frequency is down from 5x/wk to 2-3x/wk. My split now is as follows:
    Mon-Arms, Delts/MMA
    Tue-Lower Body and cardio
    Wed-MMA
    Thur-Chest, Back
    Fri-Plyos and cardio
    Sat-MMA (sometimes)

    I am returning more to BBing type of lifting, although I am still looking to add applicable strength and size. More info to come later...

    Rodja + 5-10lb lbm would be frightening.

    The extra kcals and less cardio have already made a huge difference and I am at about 185 now.

    Jumping in for the final results. Want to see how DCP treats you with the fat loss.

    What are the bleacher jumps (just box jumps on a box or were you actually on a bleacher doing double jumps and such?)

    I was jumping up to a bleacher. My hip flexors are ridiculously sore today, too.

    I felt really good today and I am finally starting to feel rested again. My weight today after 2 meals and 2 liters of water was 187 and I am going to cut weight next week when I head to Rob's fight just in case they need a last second replacement. Strength and cardio are very high ATM and I am mentally ready to fight if I get the opportunity on May 2nd.

    Danke.

    I just had calipers taken and they are: 3mm pectoral, 9mm abdomen, 7 mm thigh. This equates to roughly 7.5% BF, so I have managed to put on around 8 lbs of muscle and only 1 lb of fat in the past 8 weeks. This is mainly from increased kcal consumption, training for hypertrophy, and less cardio training. This is around the frame that I had prior to training MMA, but I was not this lean.

    Strength Goals-
    BP-205x5
    DL-455x1
    Clean and Press-185x5
    Close-Grip-195x5
    BB Row-305x12
    Pull-Ups-BWx12

    Ok, so I'm a dumbass and can't find my DCP for some reason, so I am going to be using 6 caps of Drive per day instead of 6 caps of DCP. This is coming from my stash and I have used Drive 2x in the past (both when I was a rep for AN)-once at 4caps/day and once at 6caps/day. It is much more effective at 6/day and the forskolin makes fat loss so easy. Therefore, my goals for this stack, and the stack itself, have been amended.

    Day 1

    Kicked off the morning with 3 Drive, took a shower, and then had breakfast with 1 XF.

    5/12-Arms, Delts
    HS Shoulder Press-95x8, 95x7+1 (10 second eccentric)
    Smith CG Bench-225x8, 235x6
    Cambered Curls/Side Laterals-2x115x10, 95x12/2x30x10, 20x15
    Decline Extensions/Hammer Curls-2x95x9, 75x15/2x50x10
    Pressdowns/Cable Rear Laterals-2x180x10/2x30x12
    Facepulls-110x15

    Overall good lifting session, but nothing spectacular. Didn't have the best diet yesterday because I was out of town until about 8, but nothing horrible. Will take pics later and also have sparring tonight.

    Took 3 Drive and 300mg chocamine about 30 minutes before MMA and had an outstanding training session. Fantastic cardio and focus throughout the session, which was over 75 minutes and lots of sparring and conditioning drills.

    I also do a ton of cardio between MMA and conditioning sessions. I have almost come to accept that abs are not going to be in my future because I carry the majority of my fat in that area.

    5/13-Lower, core
    Deadlifts-365x3, 385x2, 405x1, 410x1 (w/ straps)
    40" Box Jumps w/ Burpee-5x5 (15 sec rest)
    Hanging Leg Raises/Trunk Rotations-3x15/3x110x10

    This is the most that I have DLed in a while and I didn't have to use straps until the last set, but I used chalk throughout. Not a P.R. by a long shot (I've pulled 505 in the past), but I am making good progress in this area. I started doing them again in late March and have gone from 375 to 410 in that time. I am going to try to add at least 5 lbs per session and will continue to do my WS deads on Saturdays.

    BTW, box jumps into burpees are a killer for conditioning. Highly recommend this to anyone thats into that kinda thing.

    That's my sis' room. It's the only thing on her wall that gets my approval. The rest is a bunch of Emo BS.

    I am training a lot ATM because practically everyone has fight coming up on June 14th (except me of course...dammit) and I am one of the few that can work with FW up to LHW. I am tired from BJJ today plus weights plus some running, but I feel good overall. I love the focus from 3 Drive and 300mg of chocamine...poor man's RPM really.

    This is the most that I have DLed in a while and I didn't have to use straps until the last set, but I used chalk throughout. Not a P.R. by a long shot (I've pulled 505 in the past), but I am making good progress in this area. I started doing them again in late March and have gone from 375 to 410 in that time. I am going to try to add at least 5 lbs per session and will continue to do my WS deads on Saturdays.

    BTW, box jumps into burpees are a killer for conditioning. Highly recommend this to anyone thats into that kinda thing.
    Subscribed. I like your training style. I think more people should incorporate powerlifts and olympic lifts. I don't play sports or anything but I think box jumps are the shlt!
