    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Halfway Review
    Dosage: I have used 4 caps the whole time
    Notable Increases thus far...

    Incline HS Press - Originally 230 x 14 now 260 x 10
    HS Shoulder Press - Originally 150 x 17 now 170 x 14
    WG Rack Chins - Originally bw+55 x 15 now bw+75 x 20
    HS Flat Press - Originally 230 x 13 now 250 x 11
    DB Shoulder Press - Originally 45s x 30 now 55s x 20
    HS Pulldowns - Originally 140 x 19 now 150 x 25
    Rack Pulls - Originally 475 x 5 now 500 x 6
    Incline DB's - Originally 85s x 11 now 85s x 17 (thats with a terrible last workout that doesn't count)
    Smith Shoulder Press - Originally 165 x 9 now 175 x 11
    Smith CGBP - Originally 205 x 10 now 215 x 11
    Rack Chins - Originally bw+45 x 19 now bw+60 x 23
    Preacher Curls - Originally 85 x 17 now 90 x 21
    ATG Squats - Originally 225 x 7 now 235 x 7
    Sumo Leg Press - Originally 260 x 30 now 270 x 30

    Weight start- 188
    Weight now- 184

    I've never been this lean.. oh wait, I've never been this strong either

    Thoughts: Those are the majority of the numbers. Due to my switching in leg pressing style, really focusing on making sure my knees touch my shoulders every rep, weight comparisons are not possible. The increases are pretty huge over a half of bottle. You may be thinking "Oh but you dropped a few reps from beginning to end." I'm focusing on adding weight, and up 20-30 lbs and down maximum of 3 reps is a hell of a strength progression. Not to mention if I kept the weight stagnant, I would add 3+ reps from last time, making this gains around 15+ pounds for compound movements. I'm extremely satisfied so far and that is why I've already purchased another bottle.

    Workout 11..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    Drag Curls - 100 x 9-4-3 (up 5 lbs down reps.. still happy to add weight and stay 8+ reps for the first part though)

    Rope Hammer Curls - 130 x 14-10-7 (up 6 reps)

    Leg Press Calf Extensions - 270 x 10 (holding long stretch at bottom and exploding up.. followed by quick bouncing reps until I scream)

    Sumo Leg Press - 370 x 30 (no change here.. knee was sorta hurting, massive blood flow though)

    Cybex Leg Press - 630 x 4 (dropped down from 720 for less leg strain and instead of goin to 90 making sure my knees hit my shoulders) / 280 x 20 (same fashion.. huge pump)

    Days Thoughts: Well I think I'm going to have my knee checked out. It's acting funny and better safe than sorry. No pain what so ever just walking and stuff.. but I feel it limits me on my squats and would like to fix it so I can get my wheels huge.
    Energy: Great.. trained legs.. followed it up with some cardio.
    Focus / Well Being: Focused as usual. I'm happy in the gym like all the time now.. probably has to do with my weights climbing up and up, and my weight slowly dropping .
    Gym Performance: Solid.. everything is good.. gains keep coming and weight is down since the beginning of the log. I have backed off cardio a bit not doing it as frequently in the morning. May take it up to that level again to see what I can drop to.

    Workout 11..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    HS Flat Press - 270 x 7-3-2 (up 20 lbs and +1 rep)

    DB Shoulder Press - 55 x 12-5-3 (no change but no spotter, slightly better today)

    Machine Dips - 210 x 8-5-3 (up 10 lbs down 5 reps)

    HS Pulldowns - 160 x 12-6-6 (up 10 lbs down 1 rep)

    Rack Pulls - 545 x 2 (up 45 lbs down 4 reps) / 425 x 8 (up 20 lbs)


    Days Thoughts: Most satisfying workout I've had since I've been on Zap. I hit 3 plates per side on lying hs flat press. This was huge for me. That was my goal by the end of the log and I felt ambitious today and hit it and managed to add reps from last week!
    Energy: Superb, 25 minutes of cardio after a workout that shattered PR's
    Focus / Well Being: So focused. Pulling 545 off the rack x 2 from a dead stop at 184 was a huge accomplishment for me. I was stoked (and shaking).
    Gym Performance: Simply incredible. I'm hit numbers that were end of the summer goals midway through summer while dropping pounds. I'm really just ecstatic right now.

    Workout 13..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    DB Curls - 45s x 15-8-6 (up 6 reps)

    Hammer Curls - 45s x 10-6-5 (up 1 rep)

    Standing Calf Extensions - 200 x 10 (up 20 lbs and 1 rep)

    Leg Curls (individual leg) - 60 x 10 each leg (through this in since lying leg curls was stalling)

    Reverse Power Squat - 360 x 9 (up 5 reps)

    Leg Press - 290 x 20

    Days Thoughts: Short and sweet today.. got in and got out.
    Energy: Lowest it has been, I had a mid term and then a quiz and the quiz was a group activity and i had to carry the group.
    Focus / Well Being: Not too bad, probably the worst day so far but I still increased in all aspects of the workout.
    Gym Performance: Everything felt heavy except for the power squats which is the primary movement so that was good. I did manage to increase the reps a lot but everything felt a bit heavy.

    Workout 14..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Incline DB Press - 85s x 11-6-3 (up 3 reps)

    Smith Shoulder Press - 175 x 6-3-2 (no change, probably going to sub this exercise out, I think that and incline DB's is too similar of a motion)

    Smith CGBP - 220 x 8-3-2 (up 5 lbs and 2 reps)

    [youtube]aJ1uNySEFkk[/youtube]

    Rack Chins - bw+60 x 14-6-5 (concentrated on form, only went up 2 reps but the bi's were still a bit sore from their annihilation on Monday)

    T-Bar Rows - 280 x 8 (up 10 lbs down 1 rep)

    [youtube]Twi__znRkVE[/youtube]

    Seated Row - 170 x 12 (up 30 lbs)

    Days Thoughts: Not a bad day, not sure if I'm going to stick with Incline DB Press or not, I did all that fresh with no spotter so the first reps took a bit of time. I'll probably end up subbing out smith shoulder press.
    Energy: Pretty solid, had enough energy to do 20 minutes of cardio and abs after the lift and stretching.
    Focus / Well Being: Focus in the gym is good, that's for sure.
    Gym Performance: I'm still setting PR's and doing damn well, but that whole crushing feeling is starting to wear a bit. It may however be the antibiotic I'm on as performance is still sky high just that my alpha feeling has died a bit. The feeling started to die as I started taking my antibiotic so this could be a fair conclusion.


    I'm continuing to stay lean / lean out more.. here is an updated picture

    Workout 15..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    Preacher Curls - 90 x 13-6-5 (same weight +3 reps)

    Reverse Grip Cable Curls - 100 x 15-10-8 (up 10 lbs)

    Seated Calf Extension - 160 x 10

    SLDL - 385 x 5 (no change)

    Squats - 245 x 5 (+10 lbs - 2 reps)


    Days Thoughts: Well I think it may be time to listen to my body. A very important aspect of DC training is planned cruising. I think it's time to hit 2 weeks of maintenance work just a couple set each split taken 1 or 2 reps short of failure. It seems my recovery is slowing as is my progress. I've been hitting it hard for 7 weeks or so now so that is about the right time for a 10 day cruise.
    Energy: Still up there, I was breaking records but not at the pace of earlier.
    Focus / Well Being: Still very focused and what not, I just feel with the 7 weeks of intense training, excess cardio, and now my antibiotic a 10 day cruise is in order.
    Gym Performance: Still solid, I didn't digress and everything was still beaten with the exception of SLDL, granted at a lesser rate. Next week at least will be a week of cruising, probably followed by a couple days into the week after that as well.

    Workout 16..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Incline HS Press - 270 x 4-3-2 (up 10 lbs down 1 rep)

    HS Shoulder Press - 175 x 7-4-3 (up 5 lbs same reps)

    Ez Bar Overhead extensions - 70 x 9-6-4 (will be putting these in next blast so tried them for getting a feel of the weight today)

    WG Chins - bw+25 x 7-4-3 (freeweight no rack, seeing where I'm at)

    HS High Row - 280 x 10-5-3 (up 5 reps)

    Days Thoughts: Definitely approaching the CNS limit. I'm lifting with Pacman of these forums wednesday and after that I'm taking a break from the iron for 10 days.
    Energy: Very good.
    Focus / Well Being: It's just not as sharp and driven as it was earlier. I attribute this to the large increase in weights while decreasing bodyweight as cruising being a part of DC Training.
    Gym Performance: Actually still good. I don't feel like I did in the early weeks but numbers are still going up and bodyweight down slowly. This is a CNS issue for sure not a zap issue as I have been blasting for 9-10 weeks (a very long blast). Zap has been so great my numbers have gotten high and a layoff is required.

    Smith Shoulder Press - Originally 165 x 9 now 175 x 11 (up 10 lbs and 2 reps)
    Smith CGBP - Originally 205 x 10 now 220 x 13 (up 15 lbs and 3 reps)

    Before and Afters:








    Thoughts: The pictures speak for themselves. As my final lift was with Pacman8, I think he can also attest to my vascularity I've acquired because I don't feel that the lighting gives my arms true justice. This product has already been purchased by myself. It was simply short of incredible. A net change in weight or 4 lbs or so of pure bodyfat lost while the number clearly were climbing up. Another great part of this was the energy was long lasting and clean. There was no shakiness to it whatsoever and its effects were noted for around 5 hours. The focus was very very noticeable and pure up until the end when I was on antibiotics and my cns was wearing. Another effect that can't be left unsaid is the thermogenic effect of this supplement. I was sweating like a mad man in the gym everytime. I set multiple PR's and decreased pure bodyfat. I think Doug has a real winner in this product and I would recommend it to anyone looking to up their training to another level. Let me also note that no other dietary changes were made and that this supplement is truly one that can not be mimicked by diet. My diet was on point prior to this and this really helped push my workouts. The journey has been fun and another one will be coming. I look forward to the future of Core's products and hope they have some great things in the works. A big thanks to Doug and Dan for allowing this log to happen and shedding light on Core Nutritionals. I'd also like to thank everyone for stopping by because you all helped me stay motivated. I'd also like to answer any questions anyone may be left with so feel free to PM me them.
