    CraigMatthew's Epic Bulking Phase with the help of AN and a little AP


    Well, the time has come (winter here) to do a nice bulk.

    Goals:
    Bulk as much as possible while keeping body fat below 10%
    Really focus on quad, hamstring and calve development.
    Also try and build thicker abs.

    Current Stats:
    Height: 183cm
    Weight: 91kg's (201lbs)
    Body Fat: 8.9%

    How I intend to achieve these goals:
    High protein, medium carb, low-medium fat intake.
    Will use mainly low GI CHO's, but I'm not afraid to eat dirty.
    Rep ranges will be on the low side, 6-10, going as heavy as possible.
    Good supplements to back my training an diet up.


    How the supplements will be taken:
    First week will be:
    AN IGF2 (old formula)
    Poseidon
    RPN gut health
    AN Drive
    AN RPM
    Anabolic Pump

    Second week till Fifth week:
    AN IGF2 (New formula!!)
    Neovar 2.0
    Poseidon
    RPN gut health
    Activate Xtreme
    anabolic Pump

    Rating of workouts will be done as per my previous logs:
    Strength:
    Bodyweight/Body Comp:
    Pumps/Vascularity:
    Endurance:
    Aggression:
    Focus:
    Libido:
    Muscle Density/Hardening:
    Overall Energy:
    Personal Commentary:

    This log should kick off hopefully by Monday, as I'm still waiting on a couple of supplements to arrive.

    Supplement arsenal:
    AN Drive (3 pre workout / 3 six hours later)
    AN RPM (3 pre workout)
    AN IGF2 (3 upon wake / 3 afternoon / 3 at bedtime)
    Poseidon (2-3 scoops per day, first thing in morning, then with workout, and sometime pre bed)

    To be added when arrives:
    Neovar 2.0 (3 in morning / 3 post workout)
    Anabolic Pump (1 in morning / 1 post workout meal / 1 with dinner )

    Hope this makes sense.

    Good to have you in
    Training split will be legs 2 times per week (Monday, Friday)
    Chest (Sunday)
    Back + Biceps (will rotate depending on day)
    Shoulders + triceps (will rotate depending on day)

    Will do weights 4 times per week, so obviously legs will take up 2 days with the other 3 groups being done around that, so one muscle group will miss out each week in a rotation type manner.

    Dont like doing weights 5 times per week as I find with my intensity I tend to find this over trains me, so a 8 day week tends to work better.

    With legs twice a week are you working the same muscle groups at the same intensity?

    Same intensity yes, but slightly different movements, deadlifts each time, but squats just once per week, leg extension both times , hamstring curls on swiss ball and machine once and calves seated and standing both times. So I guess the main difference is just squats once per week, and the second time replacing the squats with hamstring exercises.

    Looks good. Are your deadlifts targeting your Hammies, or a full body movement?

    Good question, forgot to mention, that once per week I'll use deadlifts as a full body movement, bending at the knees, and then the other day I will do stiff legged deadlifts to target hamstrings.

    now that I know your running this i am in as well! Good luck. I had some great sleep and fun dreams, and it might be because I dosed IGF-2 so closed to bed time. Let me know if you have similiar feelings.

    You will have deeper and better sleep on IGF-2, because it releases more GH in the body

    I understand...i was just asking..b/c from what i read...and im def not the smartest person in the world....that its primary function was to boost testosterone and increase GH...i just didnt think of it as having other effects...such as effects on my sleep like it did the first day I took it.

    Yeah the main function is to boost GH. GH is highest when you sleep so it is definitely beneficial to take it pre sleep.

    it's ok man, we all learn as we go, and IGF-2 does indeed help with sleep, and if you stack it with some ZMA, you will have amazing vivid dreams and some great DEEP sleep.

    Yes, IGF-2 is GREAT for recovery! DOMS is eliminated (well, it was for me). And because sleep is when the body recovers, and the sleep you get on IGF-2 is deeper, then yeah, it helps recovery quite a lot!

    Metroba, has a point; you should always know WHY you are taking a supplement (no matter what it IS). If you have any further queries (sometimes simply reading the information provided is not enough; you may need or want extra assistance) about IGF-2 or ANY of the Applied Nutriceuticals' products, please, feel free to PM me (or any of the other AN reps), and we will help you out as best we can

    I completely understand....and not to hijack the thread....I had read most of the ***S on the AN forum, but it was when the product first came out...so it has been awhile. And that part just did not jump out at me.

    I think im gonna def try it with ZMA tho....I loved ZMA
