Outside workouts are the best. Nice weight on the bentover rows!
Thanks, it’s perfect in springtime especially - breezy and not frigid or hot yet. Got another afternoon outside workout in yesterday:


04/03/20 - Day 58
BW 237.6

Bird Dogs, Planks, Side Planks, Glute Bridges, Air Squats

CAT Squat, beltless
45 3x7,
135,225x7
295 5x5 in 14 min, 40 sec

Axle Deadlift
vs short monster minis
135,225,315x3
335 lats said Nope

TKE
light band 3x20/leg

Standing Hamstring Curl
light band 2x20/leg

Lats were too sore even for speed deadlifts, but the squats moved well and I was happy with the time I finished them in. Changing some training up with no powerlifting meets on the horizon due to COVID19.

First strictpressing behind the neck training ever really, and I enjoyed it despite being awkward. Also don’t think I’ve incline pressed in like 1.5 years so it was great to feel so strong on it - the last two sets might have been rep PRs!

Last day of this stack. I took some pictures on waking today and will get them up and final thoughts soon.

BTN pressing is just so sexy feeling afterwards! Looking good in the old training department man.

FINAL REVIEW

BW: 238.0

Pics (first thing on waking):

Front relaxed
Adjustments.JPG


Front flexed
Adjustments.JPG


Rear relaxed

Rear flexed
Adjustments.JPG


Ending cold measurements: waist 41”, navel 41”, chest 43”, arm 17”, leg at largest point of quad 27.5”, leg at highest point of hamstring 30”

Physical changes over 8 weeks:
Dropped ~5.5lbs from start, but actually gained about 6lbs in initial several weeks before bringing that back down for an ~11lb drop from peak, 7lbs of which was the final two weeks. Despite initial weight gain from over-feeding, strength did not really increase in any heavy compounds at all, so eventually I decided to stop eating big and try to clean up the waistline some. Muscles have stayed the same size according to the tape measure while belly has tightened slightly. I did see numerous high volume PRs on smaller accessory lifts like Skullcrushers, Glute Ham Raise & Incline DB Press despite getting weaker on big lifts.

Feedback:
The positive effects on libido from Viron seem to subside pretty quickly (I took 2 every single day per instructions). Follidrone appeared to help my endurance on volume work in training throughout this cycle, independent of my maximum strength declining. Vector seems to have a potent glucose metabolizing effect, like a GDA, and causes a lot of hunger initially while you adjust, but splitting dosage into 3 doses of 2 caps & avoiding preWO dosing alleviates most of the hunger & all of the low blood sugar issues - Vector preWO is not ideal in my opinion, and I moved it postWO for my initial daily dose. If you want to raise appetite, 3 caps is definitely helpful.

Overall, this stack appears to have had positive effects on body composition, retaining muscle size in a caloric deficit. I would not say I noticed any real side effects beyond hunger earlier on. It did not help my strength at all, but seems like a good natural bodybuilding option honestly. If you really evaluate my training, you can see there isn’t a lot of volume - this stack would likely shine even more for someone in a hypertrophy phase.

Conclusion:
The BLR Anabolic Stack does appear to promote muscle mass EVEN in a caloric deficit.

Excellent review and log Hyde! Thank you very much for your hard work and honesty! It’s great to see/hear how things went slightly above maintenance and in a deficit as well!
