    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.

  2. 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)

    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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  13. Day 6 of the BLOWUP stack

Anyways I skipped out on the Deadlifts this week and did some light lower back extensions on the machine. Still LOVING that BCAA+ I'm afraid it's going to be gone quickly.

  20. Awesome workout bro, a lot of volume.

    How was the pump?
    Serious Nutrition Solutions Representative

  21. Thanks Bros! The pumps are awesome! I think I'm going to start taking enhanced a little earlier when I do, because It always seems to intensify to the max about 1/2 into the workout. I usually dose it about 25/30 min before I start lifting (1.5 hours after my after-lunch snack). Might bump it to a hour pre

  22. It might just be how my body reacts, but personally the more focus oriented stim products (that I prefer) tend to do better for me 45-60 minutes pre. Idk why but I dose them with that in mind based on personal experience.

    Awesome workout!

  27. Nice work 804! I see you tried those shrugs you were thinking about. Could you feel them in your upper back at all?

    Yes! It felt like the upper rhomboids were pinching along with some mid lower traps! Definitely a good variation from the usual!

  30. Anytime dude! I think I might have to throw those Dante rows into my back workout tomorrow as well. Only problem is the machine we have like that isn't "add-a-plate" style... Its one of those newer easy machines with the resistance buttons you press in (I think its made for older folks), but I'll report back with how it goes. Thanks again for posting these variation exercises. I'm always up for something new bro!
