    Dudes a mad man! I did 4 working sets of leg press followed by 4 of squats and I limped out the gym today! Also did accessory work of course but my point should be clear!

    I needed the high level of stims to wake my ass up... boy did it work. I had an awesome workout. And it didn't feel "synthetic" either!

    ...stumbles to car.

    Also, I'd like to add that after 32 days on Versa-1 I can say I've been eating a TON and I'm always hungry - But I look leaner and more vascular! I'm loving it. looking forward to the results with anabeta, erase, and testpowder!

    Can't wait to be back on enhanced tomorrow for shoulder day

    Thanks guys! Yeah I'm mainly doing these light legs with an aim at reps and increasing flexibility. Which is why I'm literally trying to get as low as I can with these squats (ATG). Also, for that extra boost with a smaller group of muscles like arms. I find that starting with the squats gets my whole body fired up and pumped. Idk I like how its working out so far.

    That's interesting because I mainly do light lifts on legs but they feel incredibly difficult! I'm king chicken legs but damn it they are improving!

    Agreed, they're rather difficult. But that endurance is good because I hate doing cardio when I'm bulking. That keeps my endurance up a little. I used to play hockey so I've always had big calfs and moderate legs. Just in the past year have I actually been trying to hit them hard though. Working so far, I always aim to set a PR every workout (or at least an extra rep from the previous week).

    That's too bad. Is snow unusual to your area or is it a big storm? It seems like some places panic when they see any amount of snow.

    I guess you guys are dealing with the storm that's on its way here. I didn't know it was that bad, but some schools are already being closed.

    Hope you feel better bolt.

    Dude, Its ridiculous. It never got below 35 degrees, but the snow came down hard. Covered the road in slight slush that instantly caused most people (95%) to panic. For no reason should the gyms have closed or anything else. I work in a manufacturing center and half the people left early. Its pathetic, there are bros out there that NEED a workout

    Day 4 of the STACK

    Shoulders+Traps (still focusing heavily on rear delts)

    I know I said I was excited to get back to enhanced today, But I had just bought my first bottle of focus XT by SNS with my big order and I wanted to try it. So I mixed a scoop of XT with a scoop of hemavol. Turned out to be an awesome combo. I never took my headphones off during my entire workout except to say hi to a couple of the ladies right before I finished. Amazing combo for pumps and focus for sure. I will get back to enhanced tomorrow for back day! I like experimenting with preworkout cocktails

    Felt a little stronger due to that "snow day" off.


    Machine lateral/ delt side raises: PR** Nice Improvement
    1. 170x10
    2. 170x9
    3. 175x8
    4. 175x6

    Upright vertical cable rows:
    1. 80x12
    2. 80x11
    3. 80x10
    4. 80x11

    Dumbbell shrugs (max my gym has):
    1. 100x15
    2. 100x15
    3. 100x15
    4. 100x15

    Rear Smith shrugs (behind back):
    1. 275x12
    2. 275x12
    3. 295x10
    4. 295x10

    Face pulls (Cable):
    1. 50x15
    2. 50x15
    3. 57.5x12
    4. 57.5x13

    Laying Incline rear delt raises:
    1. 15x10
    2. 15x12
    3. 15x11

    Reverse peck deck (ex low seat to isolate shoulders)(3 sec pause at full contraction): PR** felt almost too easy on the first set - then it caught up with me
    1. 115x10
    2. 115x8
    3. 115x8
    4. 115x8

    Burnout:

    Tried like a 28's style method with behind head barbell military presses
    75 lbs

    7 lower half of rep - 7 upper half - 7 extra slow full depth - 7 regular speed (actually almost failed on the last rep)


    After I left I stopped by vitamin shoppe- they randomly had the modern bcaa+ on sale for $30 so I grabbed a tub of that to add to my arsenal. I couldn't resist

    How do you take it? I usually sip BCAA's while I workout. Probably going to dose 1.5 scoops of this. 15g is a lot. based on the 8:1:1 ratio that's what? 12 grams of Leucine (@ full 2 scoop dosage)

    I used to drink it intra workout, but recently started doing 2 scoops pre and 1 scoop post. I made the switch when starting intermittent fasting. I'm not sure what the exact amount is, but I'd guess there's more than 10g and less than 12g.

    You can do that, but I think it'd be best to take it just before your workout. If you decide to go that route I'd take it shortly before the meal rather than after it.

    Day 5 of the STACK

    Definitely feeling some effects from AB/ER/TP combo

    I went back to 2 scoops of enhanced today- best workout of the week. More PR's! Awesome pumps taking Test powder closer to workout time-- Added to the agmatine pump factor combining with enhanced. Also, Tried that USP blue razz BCAA+ and its amazing- best tasting BCAA powder to date thanks USP and PES

    So, Heavy Back / Moderate chest

    Dumbbell rows: ALL PR***** Unleashed the fury
    1. 100x10
    2. 100x10
    3. 100x9
    4. 100x8

    Laying down dumbbell pullovers (Bumped up weight from last week - dropped the reps):
    1. 100x8
    2. 100x8
    3. 100x8
    4. 100x8

    Inclined Dumbbell presses (extra slow reps - dropped the dbs all the way to my pitts):
    1. 75x12
    2. 75x11
    3. 75x11
    4. 75x10

    Standing- bent over barbell rows:
    1. 185x10
    2. 205x6
    3. 205x6
    4. 215x5 (Form getting sloppy - should have stuck with 205)

    Peck deck (Isolation- holding one arm at max contraction at all times- alternating fly)
    1. 175x10
    2. 175x10
    3. 175x10
    4. 175x10

    Cable rows (Vertical close grip): ALL PRs my buddy showed up right at the end talking smack- got me fired up. Had a point to make, So I crushed some PRs on my last exercise
    1. 200x12
    2. 220x10
    3. 220x10
    4. 240x7 (To max failure)

    Burnouts on various equipment

    Amazing workout. Simply love the 2 scoops of enhanced - especially this never ending pump

    3. 175x10
    4. 175x10

    Cable rows (Vertical close grip): ALL PRs my buddy showed up right at the end talking smack- got me fired up. Had a point to make, So I crushed some PRs on my last exercise

    2. 220x10
    3. 220x10

    Amazing workout. Simply love the 2 scoops of enhanced - especially this never ending pump

    Nice numbers on the cable rows. 240 is some serious weight...

    I also go into every workout with intention of setting a PR. I think its the number one way to avoid having average workouts.

    I have also gotten consistently stronger from the versa-1 + bulk powders, and now with the addition of the ab/ erase/ and TP its taking the synergy to a new level, and its only day 5. I felt like I was at an overall Plateau for like 6 unending months just before starting V-1. I never had the appetite to demolish food like i have been recently, and the funny thing is that I'm not putting on much fat whatsoever. I think thats also a key factor in the success that I've been having with these PR's and strength gains.

    Thanks again for all the support guys. Just another reason to push it or pull it that much harder (No pun intended)

    It sounds like things couldn't be going much better. I was in the same boat as you going into the Versa-1 beta test. My progress had stalled on several lifts, but by the end of my 4 week run, I had set several PR's on those same exercises.

    No problem bud. Keep it up!

    Whole back is on fire this morning. Yesterdays back workout kicked it up! I might have to drop deadlifts from today's heavy back workout... my lower back is sore from the bent-over barbell rows.

    That was a diesel workout man! Honestly I think taxing the lower back is one of the major things ppl neglect to account for in the programming of a training cycle. I'd probably play if "safe" if the lower back feels tired from yesterday.

    Yeah man, I account for it in my training cycle. Usually I do the back on Thursday and Legs Saturday (with deadlifts), but the snow messed it up this week. My shoulder/trap workout (usually Wed) and Back (Thur) both got pushed back a day because all the area YMCA's were closed on Wed due to slush. Always seems to be during certain strict regimens that something hampers my schedule
