Irish Cannon's Basket of Greatness (A BW Knockoff - More per capsule!)
This was originally intended to be placed in the Supplement Review section due to the vast amount of supplements I'll be using, however, with the exception of Prime, I've reviewed most of these before either in their own log, or within the log of another product. So, rather than flooding the forum with repetitive data, I'll utilize this as a training log due to the fact that my approach will be heavily DC-based, but with a strong emphasis on more volume.
ALSO, this log will include my unbiased thoughts on PRIME, and as with all of my logs, a final review will be placed in the company sub-forum (USP Labs section). This will be my first run with it, and I'm also using the updated formula with more active ingredient, so I'm very excited.
Current Weight: 175lbs
Other Supps (This will change throughout; some are currently running low)
Smash Fully Loaded
Training routine is still in the making, but I'll have it finished by tomorrow night as I start my first PRIMEd workout on Monday morning. - So far, my idea is that I'll be doing 3 muscle groups/day, and training 3x/wk. Something like this:
For each muscle group, I plan on doing 3 warmup sets, 3 MAX-OT sets, and 2 rest-pause sets, with each RP set being a different exercise. For example:
Flat Bench BB Press x 15, 12, 10...Max Weight Set (3-6 reps), Max Weight Set, Max Weight Set
Incline DB Press x 12-->RP-->RP
Dual Cable Fly x 12-->RP-->RP
Look good? I thought so!

"Basket of Greatness" huh? Definitely sounds more masculine than "Bucket of Happiness".
I'm totally in! Awesome list of supplements! I'm interested in SV2.

I'm in for this. We will have a somewhat similar stack here shortly. Except mine will be more of a bulking one. I'll probably be grabbing some Hemo soon as well.

I decided to make a small change. I won't be hitting Forearms directly, but rather within my bicep workouts. This way I can split up both Bis/Tris into separate workouts as well as Hams/Quads, and still be doing resistance training only 3x/wk. So, the routine will be...
Mon - Hams/Chest/Tris
Wed - Traps/Back/Bis
Fri - Quads/Delts/Calves
There's a decent chance that I will be doing two-a-day training on M/W/F due to my school schedule. I have class M/W from 1-4pm, so I'm thinking I'll do fasted cardio in the morning, get in a meal, go to class, eat during class, then do my resistance training immediately after I leave school. I think it should work out quite well. - But, as it stands now, I'm still doing the fasted resistance training in the morning.
Great to see all of you here. Thanks for joining me! I have faith that I'm going to make some significant progress in weeks to come. I should really dice up and add some functional strength!

The RP's work good as well. Within the RP set up, you have the intensity and a bit of volume. Question about your RP procedure, at what point do you decide it's time to move up in weight? Is it dependent on how many RP's it takes you to achieve 12 reps? Is it if you complete 12 reps under 3 RP's, at 3 RP's, 4 RP's?....etc.
Something deep in my bones would like to see you tag on one more RP exercise to your arsenal, but perhaps you could wait and see how well you respond to PRIME. In my experience with PRIME-diole, Once your body gets into the groove of a regiment that intense, fueled by the PRIME-ene, you'd be surprised what you're able to pull off.

I'll choose a number of total reps and attempt to hit it (DC style); however, it will be my target weight, so once I hit it, the weight gets bumped.Question about your RP procedure, at what point do you decide it's time to move up in weight? Is it dependent on how many RP's it takes you to achieve 12 reps? Is it if you complete 12 reps under 3 RP's, at 3 RP's, 4 RP's?....etc.
I'll probably pick a number between 12-15. This week is my test week, so I'll see what I think. I'm about to hit my first workout in a few minutes.
I decided to try the 5/2/1 dosing today. I just think it may be better to get in two capsules rather than one mid-day, as with the 6/1/1 dosing. Maybe I'll try 6/1/1 next week.
Hitting it in a few. Pre-workout supps:
1.5sc Smash FL
2x Speed V2
4g Creatine Monohydrate
...Yaaa, I had a large handful of pills.

Day 1 - RP-IC-To the DC and a little MAX OT
Sick workout today. I already listed my pre-workout supps, so here was the routine. I don't feel like listing the weights, so I'm just going to lay out the exercises...
Prone Leg Curl: 3 Warmup, 3 MaxOT
Good Mornings: RP, 1-->2-->3
SLDL: RP, 1-->2-->3
Surprised myself on how I could do those last two exercises. Weight was pretty light, but it was nice to do them.
Flat Bench BB Press: 3 Warmup, 3 MaxOT (+1 rep since last max even after 5 sets; 225x4)
Incline Bench DB Press: RP, 1-->2-->3
Pec Fly Machine: RP, 1-->2-->3
CG Bench Press: 3 Warmup, 3 MaxOT
W-Bar Pressdown: RP, 1-->2-->3
Overhead Tricep Extension Machine: RP, 1-->2-->3
It was a great workout. My target reps on the RP sets will be 15. I got between 13-19 on the RP sets today. What I'm going to do if it's under 15 is keep the weight the same until I achieve 15 and bump it up. So all of the exercises that were 15 or above today will get bumped in weight next week.
Prime Notes: I still have a pump going which is extremely out of the ordinary for me (finished lifting about ~45mins ago). Hemo gives me great pumps, but usually once I leave the gym they dissipate rather quickly, so I can only attribute it to the Prime.

I take 6 caps on off days (2/2/2) and 8 caps on training days (5/2/1). - This comes out to just over 6 weeks with my two bottles. It allows for a surge of increased adaptagen behavior pre/intra-workout which is precisely when you want it.

What I think is Prime-related lethargy is totally kicking my butt. I was a little lethargic yesterday, but around mid-day today it REALLY set in. I haven't even showered since my workout yet. I crashed in bed after I ate my meal, only waking a couple times to eat again. I'm doing alright now. I can't totally relate this to Prime quite yet, but if it continues on a day to day basis I would have to. - The good thing is Volcom had bad lethargy on Prime, yet also responded incredibly well, so I'm hoping that I will have the same trade-off.
Gyno is still there and hasn't gone down much in the last few days, but it's not terrible. Hopefully it will dissipate. If it doesn't go away anytime soon, I'll probably run the HD/Epi/M1D cycle after this 6-week Prime cycle.
