    Kurjak asked me to do an AI inspired stack...


    Hey everyone. I'm new here! Looking forward to getting to know you guys and learn. I am here to run a log on my Anabolic Innovations centered stack.

    A little background on me, my name is Anthony, I'm 23, from NJ. My first day ever in a gym was June 23rd, 2010 and I've never looked back since. I never took my lifting seriously until about November of 2010. I started around 155 pounds and pretty much no muscle. I am now 165 pounds, 5'10", with 9% body fat. I am an assistant store manager at Starbucks and am finishing up school for business management. I have my own photography company and my biggest hobbies are cars, music, and hiking.

    So I have been off all supplements for several months now (aside from multi, fish, bcaa's, whey) and was looking into starting a new heavy (natural) cycle again. When thinking about what products to run, I know I have had much success with a USPLabs stack, iSatori stack, and an Anabolic Innovations stack which gave me the best gains. I had tried to keep an accurate log as possible when I did so, but eventually lost track of keeping day-to-day statistics.

    So my friend Matt (Kurjak on here) an AI representative, asked me to do another Anabolic Innovations centered stack. I happily agreed to do so.

    A little background on my last stack, I ran Anabolic Innnovations SWOLE Stack, Perform, HGHPro, Motivate along side of Sci-Fit Nitrox II and Jack3d/K-Otic for preworkouts. I ran two months of this in April and May, on a maintenance diet for weight. I started around ~165 pounds and roughly stayed that weight when I finished, however lost a bit of body fat, and gained great vascularity and definition from the stack. I didn't keep too much of a track of every exercise, like I had wanted to but all of my compounds dramatically increased; from:
    Bench: 190 ---> 225 1RM
    Deadlift: 250 ---> 315 1RM
    Squat: 235 ---> 300 1RM (at the end of May, after squat continued to a peak of 350 1RM)

    I gained considerable size around my chest and back, and some small gains in measurable size on my arms and legs.

    This is where I decided to really up intensity on the stack and be much more disciplined in keeping track of my workouts, diets, and measurements. Also, being a professional photographer, I will be able to provide you guys with very high quality photographs each week of my body's changes.


    So what are we running this time?

    SUPPLEMENTS.
    Maintenance / Everyday:
    Optimum Nutrition Opti-Men
    Optimum Nutrition Fish Oil
    Optimum Nutrition Flaxseed Oil
    Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey
    Optimum Nutrition 100% Caesin
    Optimum Nutrition Glutamine Powder
    Optimum Nutrition Fiber Powder
    Anabolic Innovations RecoverPro (4:1:1 BCAA's)
    Sci-Fit Gluta-lyn 1500

    Pre-Workout:
    Muscle Pharm Assault
    Anabolic Innovations Motivate
    Sci-Fit Nitrox II

    Test-boost / Growth Enhancement:
    Anabolic Innovations SWOLE Stack
    • TestoPro

    • STOKED!

    • Glycobol

    Anabolic Innovations DAA
    Anabolic Innovations Perform
    Sci-Fit Kre-Alkalyn 1500
    Driven Sports Triazole (To help STOKED! in estrogen reduction.)

    Sleep:
    Anabolic Innovations 3Z
    Anabolic Innovations HGHPro

    Weight Gainer:
    Vitol Russian Bear 5000

    ROUTINE.
    For my routine, I will be doing a 4 / 5 day split, relatively simple but it's what works for me. I have changed up my exercise's as far as specific exercise's, weight, and rep count goes to keep my body guessing.

    Day 1: Back / Bi
    Day 2: Shoulders / Traps / Abs
    Day 3: Legs / Abs
    Day 4: Chest / Triceps
    Day 5: Cardio Only

    Days for each will change each week depending on my schedule. Lifting will be heavy, with a rep range of 15-11 reps for warm ups, down to 9-5, even 3 reps for heavy, and compound exercise's. Cardio changes depending on my mood, biking, stairmaster, treadmill etc. Also counting sex with the girlfriend as cardio, sorry if TMI, but 4+ times a week, 20+ minutes each time definitely is worth factoring in.

    DIET.
    Now, I don't have a diet set in stone, as my needs change each week depending on my schedule, but my food groups I plan on keeping the same regardless. Some of the things include:
    - 4,000 calories minimum on workout days. (including Russian Bear 5,000) 3,000 minimum off days.
    - Red meat once a week or less.
    - Chicken and fish seven days a week.
    - Carbs, carbs, carbs!
    - A lot of granola, yogurt, oats, nuts.
    - Fruits and vegetables of course.
    - Soy milk only.

    Definitely going have to watch what I'm eating when I go out with the girlfriend. Fortunately, with her being 100% Chinese, her mom makes delicious authentic Chinese food, which is delicious and healthy.

    GOAL?
    Goals are out there, but I like setting high goals just so I work that much harder. Current weight is 165, I want to be 170 minimum in 5 weeks. I bought enough Russian Bear to last me the whole time, so I should be set as far as gaining goes. I don't mind if I throw some fat on to get the weight I want, I can turn that into muscle later. My compounds have gone down considerably since I've been off all supplements for a while, but I want to hit my old 1RM's and blast through them thereafter.
    Bench: Was 225, now 205, want 250.
    Dead: Was 315, now 280, want 350.
    Romanian Dead: Now 225, want 300.
    Squat: Was 350, now 320, want 405.
    Powercleans: Now 135, want 175.

    Of course these are all subject to change depending on how the cycle goes.

    # My biggest enemy against the gym is sleep. My sleeping patterns are extremely inconsistent. And typically I usually work one or two morning shifts at work, and I have to be up at 4:30 AM for those. Overall I am terrible at falling asleep and staying asleep easily, especially if I am sleeping alone and not with my girlfriend (sounds lame, I know.) Will have to do my best to overcome this.

    That should be it for now, I'm going to reserve some posts below for my baseline numbers, measurements and photos.

    Thanks for reading guys, stick around for some good all natural fun.

    - Anthony

    I'd drop the soy milk if I were you. If you don't like cow's milk I'd go with unsweetened almond milk.

    i'm thinking of running Stoked, HGHpro, TestoPro starting next week.

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    As far as Russian Bear goes, I picked up 3 tubs. Each tub is 3 servings at 5 scoops per serving = 2,600 calories. The way I am going to break it up is 5 servings, at 3 scoops per serving, to equal 1,560 calories. This way I can get enough servings for the week. I will probably end up buying more as it is delicious...

    And the soy milk, I still don't believe it effecting your T levels, at least not in my dosage. And I've seen many articles on minimal effects to estrogen / testosterone. Regular milk I can't drink without gagging.

    I agree with the soy milk statement here.

    Thanks again. Easyejl, I'll look into it.

    Diet hasn't started really yet, but I am keeping track of my intake starting today. I also did start dosing all of my supplements today so i hope it'll get into my system before back/ bi tomorrow. Not going hardcore with the bulking this week because my Russian Bear is currently at my house which is flooded from getting to. -_-

    how old are you?

    I would not recommend doing 1 rtep maxes and such all the time. They can be useful for increasing stregth. They can also cause injuries, esp as you get older and worried about how much you can lift than contracting your muscle. I look at weights as a tool to build my muscles , I used to be into being the strongest, now I am into being the most injury free and best bodybuilder I can be.

    I'm 23! What do you think? Luckily I've never had joint issues, broken bones, or muscle tears.
