    Saturdays workout was the very last of my 12rep split, a back and tricep workout that made extending my arms away from my body in any way unpleaseant through even this morning.

    With 4 Hypertrop-X 40mins beforehand, the workout consisted of:

    Superset 1: Snatch-grip Deadlifts (275) 12,12,11,10
    Dips (BW) 13,12,12,10
    Superset 2: WG Pull-ups(BW) 12,12,10,10
    Narrow-grip Bench (205) 12,12,11,10
    Superset 3: DB Row (85) 12,11,10,8
    Triceps Pushdown (110) 12,12,11,11

    Yeah boy! Those deadlifts were awesome - left me gasping for air, my back burning, and my hands permanently wrapped around the bar. The increse in weight was just what I needed. Also, I like pullups so much better than pulldowns, I just feel the stretch in my back much better. My triceps also were shot - I particular felt the pushdowns; the isolation really destroyed em.

    Exclamation 5 Days & Counting!


    That's right - 5 days until my wedding, making this my first day of glycogen-depletion. For the next 4 days, I'll be eating ~50g carbs, drinking 3gallons of water and executing 6-8sets per body part of antagonistic supersets. On friday I will begin supercompensating - eating nothing but carbs and drinking next to no water. I won't be messing with my electrolyte balance: it's too dang hot in SoCal right now and I don't want to drop too much salt and end up in hyponatraemia.
    I'll be updating daily, probably feeling crappy and cranky by thursday (that's what carb depletion does to me), and posting final pics on Saturday - the day of the big event!

    Mondays Glycogen-Depleting Workout:
    8sets per movement, 10-12reps per set, 302 Tempo

    Superset 1:Leg Presses
    Leg Curls

    Superset 2:Seated Rows
    Pushups

    Superset 3:Seated Incline DB Curls
    Overhead Tricep Extensions

    Doing so many sets, I drastically reduced weight - this week is about volume, not weight - but still it left me drained and sore after I was done. I had plenty of energy during the workout, thanks to Trop-X, and dang did I have one heck of a pump everywhere!

    Tuesdays Glycogen-depleting Workout:
    8sets, 12-15reps, 201 Tempo

    Superset 1: Leg Extensions
    Romanian Deadlifts

    Superset 2: Incline DB Press
    Wide-grip Pulldowns

    Superset 3: Gironda Perfect Curls
    Supinated, Cable Tricep Extensions

    Man am I sore: two full-body workouts two days in a row! I thought my hamstrings and biceps were gonna rip off. Now that I am home and resting however, it is my back that is feeling worked the most. I can feel the lack of sugar in my system, but thus far, no drastic change to my mood. Perhaps due to Yohimbine's stimulant effect?

    Wednesday's Glycogen-depleting Workout:
    8sets, 15-20reps, 201 Tempo

    Superset 1: DB Press
    DB Row

    Superset 2: Arnold Press
    Rear Delt Raises

    Superset 3: Zottman Curls
    Decline DB Triceps Extensions

    You know your training your upper-body hard when even your legs get sore - I was done after this workout. Didn't want to move or eat, just wanted to sit there. 3days of tons of reps, practically no carbs in that time - I am thoroughly void of sugar in my muscle. Still, I have to say, Hypertrop-X is working right up to the end - even with 8sets per bodypart, I found myself always wanting and able to get "one more rep." Now, I didn't train to failure this week, as that is a strict no-no for glycogen depletion, but I did push myself, and Trop-X gave me extra help.

    This is it!


    Today is the final day of my cut cycle Tomorrow I will be leaving for a well needed rest from everything, with an entirely recomposed body. Starting in April at 12% bodyfat, Im know right around 5%. And, for the last 6 weeks, AMS Hypertrop-X has been a daily member of my supplement regimen. Considering I was lifting while under a large calorie deficit (my diet consisted of 2300-2900kCals/day), I believe the progress I made was notable.

    I began Trop-X during a 5x5, 3-day training split which I continued for another 2 weeks:

    Chest and Biceps: Initial Workout Final Workout (2wks later)
    Incline Press 240lbs:5,5,5,4,4 240lbs:5,5,5,5,5
    Gironda Dips BW+20: 5,5,5,5,5 BW+30: 5,5,5,5,4
    Weighted Chin-ups BW+35: 5,5,5,5,4 BW+35: 5,5,5,5,4
    Gironda Barbell Curls 105lbs: 5,5,5,5,5 115lbs: 5,5,5,5,5

    Legs and Shoulders: Initial Workout Final Workout (2wks later)
    Squats 290: 5,5,5,5,5 295: 5,5,5,4,3
    Snatch 145: 5,5,5,5,5 160: 5,5,4,5,4
    Military Press 150: 5,5,5,5,5 150: 5,5,5,5,5
    Snatch-grip Podium
    Deadlifts 305: 5,5,5,5,5 315: 5,5,5,5,5

    Back and Triceps; Initial Workout Final Workout (2wks later)
    Wide Grip Pull-ups BW+25lbs: 5,5,5,5,4 BW+30: 5,5,5,4,4
    Power Cleans 185: 5,5,5,5,5 195: 5,5,5,4,4
    Narrow-grip Dips BW+35: 5,5,5,4,3 BW+45: 5,5,5,5,5
    Narrow-grip Bench 235 5,5,5,5,5 240: 5,5,5,3,3

    Though I did not make improvements in everything; overall the amount of weight, as well as reps I completed, rose noticeably.

    Following the 5x5 split, I changed gears and followed a 3x12, 3-day training split for 3-weeks:

    Chest and Biceps: Initial Workout Final Workout (3wks later)
    Gironda Dips BW: 12,12 BW: 12,12,11,10
    Preacher Curls 95: 12,12 95: 12,11,11,10
    Incline DB Press 80: 12,12 80: 12,12,10,9
    Incline DB Curls 35: 12,12 35: 12,12,12,10
    Cable Flies 95: 12,12 100: 12,12,10,8
    Hammer Curls 40: 12,12 40: 12,11,11,9

    Legs and Shoulders: Initial Workout Final Workout (3wks later)
    Squats 225: 12,12,12 240: 12,12,12,10
    Arnold Press 55: 12,10,10 55: 12,11,10,10
    Leg Press 4plates: 12,12,12 4plates: 12,11,9
    Military 135: 12,12,10 135: 12,12,11,11
    Jump Lunges BW: 15,15,15 BW:20,18,17,20
    Rear Delt Raises 30: 12,12,12 35: 12,12,12,9

    Back and Triceps Initial Workout Final Workout (3wks later)
    Snatch-grip Deadlifts 265: 12,12,12,9 275: 12,12,11,10
    Narrow-grip Dips BW: 12,12,12 BW: 13,12,12,10
    Wide-grip Pulldowns 195: 12,12,10 BW: 12,12,10,10
    Narrow-grip Bench 205: 12,12,10 205: 12,12,11,10
    DB Row 85: 12,10,8 85: 12,11,10,8
    Triceps Pushdowns 100: 12,12,12 110; 12,12,11,11

    Improvements made on this workout were reflected more in the increase in reps and sets, though weight did increase on several of my movements. The increase in my squats, unfortunately, left me with too little strength left by the time I got to leg presses for any improvement there. Still, I continued to enjoy abnormally increased endurance, focus and recovery on Hypertrop-X during these weeks as well.

    Overall: Hypertrop-X provides an extra push while in the gym. Mentally and physically I like its effects and the progress it helped me attain. The sensations that Beta-Alanine typically cause are present, but understated. This, however, doesn't seem to impede its efficacy as it still made quite a difference in the way I felt and performed. I would be curious to see if progress could by increased better by stacking additional BA with Trop-X, but also want to make clear that it stands well on its own.

    Hypertrop-X is solid - it works well and a single bottle would last the average lifter a while if taken only before working out, making it an economical choice as well. I would honestly recommend Hypertrop-X: it's not an panacea of the weight room, but it doesn't claim to be. It's a pre-workout supp that can benefit anybody. If it sounds like something you'd like - give it run, lift hard, eat well and you'll see and feel the impact.

    A HUMONGOUS bout of gratitude to AMS, and particularly LazeDragon, for this opportunity. I'll be spreading the word about your stuff!

    Also, I will be posting my carb refeed today later on and final pics tomorrow morning!

    The Moment We have All Been Waiting For


    After cutting water at 4pm last night, loading up on fruit, starches and sugar, I dropped almost 4lbs of water weight! I took a couple tablespoons of vegetable glycerine and some taraxicum tabs and partied the night away (my bachelor party).


    This morning I chugged a regular Dr. Pepper for the sugar, took some more glycerine, did a quick pump workout and I was ready for my photos.

    Final stats: 221lbs, ~5%BF (little bit over I think)




    I kinda twisted weird on this one a bit, but it's still a good shot


    This one show off some of the vascularity in my shoulders and chest, as well as better shading across my abs




    These last two are attempts to display the vascularity that has developed in my arms - they're really quite defined - but that bathroom lighting...oh, it's bad.

    Compared with my "before" pics, I've made a ton of progress - dropping several percent BF and retaining plenty of muscle. Hard training, hard diet, good supps paid off! One last final thank you to AMS - Hypertrop-X is good stuff and I needed the help!

    P.S. - Keep your eyes open for a pic of me and my new "Mrs. Resolve"!
