Powerfull/Tri lean system log
Alright, so this is my first log I have ever done. Gonna give this a shot to help monitor my progress with the diet and the stack.
Height: 6'3" Weight: 220
BF%: appx 17 not to sure on this one
Bench: Max 275
Squat: Max 250
Deadlift: Max 325
I am currently doing the Anabolic Diet. Tomorrow will be my second carb up. It seems as though my body responded really well to the 30g of carbs on the 12 day intro so I stayed with that this week as well. A usual day end up with about 2500 cals, 160g fat, 200-220g prot, 25-30 net carbs.
I lift MWF and do cardio on my off days except Sunday. Cardio is usually 30-45 minutes, and if I am not completely dead I will do aobut 15-20 minutes of high intensity cardio after I lift.
My goals are to get my BF down to 12-13% at a weight around 200.
My starting weight 2 weeks ago when I began the anabolic diet was 230, last weekend after my carb up I weighed 225. The scale yesterday said 220. I am trying to only weigh myself once a week so I dont obsess over it, and focus mainly on visual aspects rather then the number.
Measurements at the start where:
Waist: 40" at belly button
Thigh: 23" both legs
Bicep: 14"L and 14.5"R
Chest: 48" (I think, I am at work now and cant remember for sure) oh well
I will be measuring myself every 2 weeks, and tomorrow morning will be my measuring day.
Powerfull - USP Labs
M-F - 2 preWO 2 before bed (May do 1 morning, 1 preWO, 1 before bed) Opinions? experienced users please share your experience
Tri lean + TX- ALRI
Venom - 1 pill 2 times daily
Special Tactics - 1 pill 2 times daily
Lean Dreams - 1-2 before bed depending on feeling in morning.
TX - 1 pill 2 times daily
If theres any other info I should include let me know. I am ready to lose this fat.

Alright so yesterday I went to the gym. had an awesome cardio workout. I am really digging the tri lean system. I love Venom Hyperdrive. Good stuff.
Took measurements yesterday. Waist is down to 38.5"
All others stayed the same, and I got the chest at 45"
I decided to wait til monday to start Powerfull. I had a bad night sleep the first day I took it, and if its gonna take some time to adjust I want a full week to do it.
BTW weight yesterday morning was 218. We'll see tomorrow what my weight is after the carb up and filling up some of my glycogen stores.
I should be posting before pics tonight or tomorrow morning.

going to follow this one. starting to cut right now too. interested in how you feel about PowerFULL.
03-11-2008 09:08 AM
We have almost the exact stats ( except im 5'7 ) and I am JUST about to start in w/ the Tri-Lean system on the AD.
Without a doubt subbed to see how you progress
03-11-2008 10:59 AM
here is a before pic. I was going to post several but apparently they are to big or something and I am short on time to resize them all so I guess this will do. I will be posting another update later on. I have a test to go try and pass first.

Ugh ok. School finished for the day. So far as I have experience before the venom hyperdrive is awesome, it and the special tactics have been helping curb cravings for the sweets and carbs. I am also taking the TX, and have noticed that I am much warmer. I feel like I have a slight sweat breaking for long periods after I take it, which I guess is the desired result.
I had some issues with Powerfull the first night I took it and it caused some serious lack of sleep. After discussing with the USP reps (thanks again guys) I found that some adjustment is needed for some people. So I took normal dosing during the day today, and will take the normal night dose tonight to see how it goes. Hopefully this plus the lean dreams will = awesome sleep. I need it.
03-13-2008 01:23 AM
alright guess i should detail my workouts a bit here.
Monday I did Chest Tris Back and Shoulders
Incline Smith Press
Smith Shoulder Press
Wide grip pullups
Rev Grip Bench
I havent been setting any records on most exercises however, I did push my deadlift up to 250 pounds, 3 sets of 5, after 3 wu sets.
I have been focusing on using the most weight possible to acheive 15-20 constant or rest paused reps. I enjoy the way this works, it has cut down my workout times some, i feel like i get more areas of my body working in a workout, and I still feel sore after, like i did 3 sets of 4 diff exercises.
Tuesday - I did not get much sleep on monday night because I was studying for an exam, however, I still went to do cardio and abs in the afternoon. I did 300 total reps on abs, 120 reps with a 45lbs plate. I do 5 diff exercises that target all ab areas upper lower and sides, with reps of 20 and just cycle em. Cardio was only 20 minutes of mod intensity, the abs wore me out, and I felt like I was going to fall asleep running.
Today was an off day. I was supposed to go and do legs and bi's BUT prior obligations I forgot about changed that plan and pushed it to tomorrow.
03-13-2008 10:52 PM
Alright todays workout was a long one. Picked up the leg workout I missed yesterday and did my abs and cardio that I usually do. PWO supps looked like this:
1 hour before: 3 Powerfull, 6 vitrix (forgot to mention I was using this also)
30 minutes prior: 1 venom, 2 special tactics, 1 TX, 1 scoop of PurpleWrath, 1 scoop superpump250.
Right before workout: Protien shake w/ 25 grams pro, and 4 mg omega 3's
The superpump isnt usually in the mix, but I had one scoop left over sitting in the cabinet so I tossed it in. I dont think it made much of a diff, just made me take a superdump like always right after my wo.
Anyways legs and Biceps:
LEG PRESS: 12*300, 8*400, 6*450, 4*500, 20*520(Straight reps) supersetted this with calfs on the last 3 sets.
So CALFS on LP: 10*450, 10*500, 3 sets of 10 in a row of 520 with various toe positions. After that I did one more set of LP 10*520
HAMSTRGTH LEG CURLS: 12*70, 8*90, 6*120, 4*120, 15*120(Rest Paused) Hams are a weak point for me.
STANDING STRAIGHT BAR CURLS: 12*60, 8*70, 6*80, 4*80, 18*90
FOREARM BB FLEXES: 12*80, 8*90, 6*100, 20*100
To make sure I got my bi's good I did some close grip chins. Usually I can do 10 in a row, I did a set of 3 and a set of 2.
After this was abs, 200 reps, 5 diff exercises rotating 20 reps on each to 200 total
Then 10 minute run 1 mile, then 15 minutes on stairmaster. That was all my legs could take.
The workout felt awesome....insane energy and intensity. Maybe cuz I took so many stims, but it was not to diff then Mondays lift.
*EDIT* morning weight today was 217
03-14-2008 09:06 AM
nice weight on the leg press KSMA, but can I ask why no squats?
down 3lbs in a week is pretty impressive - good results so far
03-14-2008 12:25 PM
I do squats. I will do legs again on monday and I will be squatting then and doing stiff leg deadlifts. I just enjoy leg presses more so I do them first.

Hey guys I am going to try my best to keep this up to date this week. I am travelling around and doing some training this week. So it may be limited.
03-19-2008 12:13 AM
Aight so updating here. I'm in VA right now, working at an odd gym. I hate having to do that, you never realize how important atmosphere is until you are out of your norm.
I did Biceps, Forearms, and Legs on Monday. Bi's I did preacher curls, Legs was squats and lying leg curls. No records set or anything special. I am really just trying to maintain this week. I have no scale, and most of my normal diet food is unavailable. This is aggrevating.
03-19-2008 08:09 AM
It happens, just try and stay as clean as you can for with the choices that you have
Are you feeling anything from the Tri-Lean system or Powerfull?
I started my tri-lean system and I like it because I havent crashed I've just had a steady amount of energy all day and I've been pretty calorie deficient ( about 2100 and im 211+ while being pretty active )
I feel like when I take the Special Tactics with my breakfast and lunch it makes me more satisfied/full off of ~500cals which usually I am still pretty hungry off.
03-19-2008 06:08 PM
Oh man I love the tri lean. Between the venom and special tactics I have zero cravings. They control appetite so well. The TX is awesome too, I actually have noticed the my body feels warmer about 1 hr after taking it, and it lasts for 2-3 hrs. Its great.
I cant even begin to explain the feeling of powerfull. I take 1 in the morning, 2 prewo, and 1 before bed. Sleep is improved greatly, even when I only get 5 hrs or so I feel rested and ready to go. Workouts are focused and driven like never before. I love this product. I'm a believer and will continue to buy this one.
03-19-2008 07:50 PM
are you taking the entire tri-lean system and the t-x at the same time or following the recommended schedule? Just wondering because i really dont want to cut for another 3 months...been doing it for like 2-3 months as is
03-20-2008 11:51 PM
I didnt mess with the recommended schedule. I am taking the recommended doses of Venom Special Tactics and TX all together.
03-23-2008 01:16 PM
Ok. So I am back from virginia and getting back on track. Last week the diet was fairly clean except for a McD's trip one day and an amazing experience at a chinese buffet. I went to this buffet on sunday (carb up day) and it was so good i had to go back before I left VA.
I worked out 4 times last week. Two days lifting, two days cardio(retarded long runs 5mi+). Weighed in this morning at 219. I was 216 last saturday morning before the start of my carb up. So as I see it, not to bad for the week. I think the fact that I took my supps with me and got some protien powder while I was there helped alot, I also caught up on some sleep. 12 hours of powerfull/lean dreams aided sleep.....amazing.
:hot: No more of this for a while.
03-27-2008 04:56 AM
Alright here we go.
Monday workout was:
I did deadlifts for back thickness 12X135,8X185,6X185,4X205
then 3 sets of 5 @ 255. Pretty sore from this.
Nothing else really of mention beside the fact that I picked up an illness from my wife. Started feeling really bad towards the end of my workout, skipped cardio.
Tues: still feeling like crap
Wed: Legs and Biceps
Felt better today, nothing really special. Pump was alot better today.
Weight as of wednesday morning was 217. If I have time I'll hit measurements tomorrow, if not then it'll be saturday.
I definately need to focus on upping the cardio. its nicer outside now, so I may start riding my bike to school. Need to put some serious mileage down, either on wheels or on foot.
03-28-2008 05:10 AM
Alright so I busted out the bicycle today, took a 5 mile ride to the gym.
I did abs today. Weighted situps, Body weight situps, scissor kicks, oblique crunches, weight oblique crunches. Did 20 per exercise with no rest between exercises. Did 4 rounds of this.
Proceeded to spend 15 minutes on the stair master, then when I left the gym a cold front had moved in and I had shorts and a cut off tshirt on so i took the 2 mile route home on my bike. Needless to say my legs are a little sore, especially since yesterday was leg day.
I am thinking about modifying the workout a little bit. Adding extra exercises and spreading it out more over the week. I am finding it difficult with my busy schedule to make it to the gym for even 30 min of cardio if there is no weight training also. I am more of an outside cardio person, treadmills piss me off and the gym I'm at has no stationary bikes, just recumbants. Gonna have to work past this.
Weight this morning was 216.6. No measurements yet. It'll be saturday when I post em. I definately feel leaner. Looking in the mirror I am seeing positive changes. Going to try and get some progress pics also this weekend.
