Thanks guys! A close friend of ours bought it new as a project...did the lift, lights, winch, and started the body armor. Then got tired of working on it and sold it to us. Little by little we are getting it finished...well, if that’s what you want to call it! You always find something new you want to add! Lol My goal is to get a lift for the top soon. That sucker is HEAVY and awkward!!

Opened my last bottle today. So sad! I will be ordering more for sure! I love that it’s versatile enough to use regardless of if you are in a deficit or not!

Decided to stick with the 3ml...applied 1.5 (split) on my arms first thing this morning. About 4:50am. I usually give it a few minutes to dry before pulling my shirt over it- especially since I wear a hoodie when I train. I don’t think I’ve mentioned in the past but I definitely feel a calming type effect especially the night application after my shower. Could be simply from the eucalyptus in the mix.

Here’s today’s workout...spent a huge portion of time working on Deads today. Was one of those days where I wish I would’ve had more time...I was feeling great! Now, it did catch up with me by mid morning! I was worn out!

Deadlifts
95x8
135x5
185x5x2 sets sumo
205x5 sumo
215x3 sumo
225x3 sumo
235x2 sumo
235x3 conventional
245x3 conventional
255x3 conventional
265x3x2 sets conventional

superset with hip flexor work for my right hip as well as a few sets of GHR’s

Wide grip pulldowns
120x10-12 x4 sets

Standard pulldowns
120x10-12x3 sets

DB Rows
75x6x4 sets

DB pullover (lat focus)
40x20x2 sets

SS
Plate loaded seated row machine
220x12x3 sets

DB curls
20x15x3 sets

Stretching/cardio

**spent a lot more time on deads than usual but really working on form on the sumos and testing them out. They actually felt much better than they have in the past. Felt better on my screwed up hips. Lol

More likely it's the UA itself you're feeling:

Nice workout! I love doing deadlift conventional and sumo in the same workout.

Hey guys. Things are going well...trying not to think about my dwindling amount of Ursa Major with each application! Haha I will definitely be buying some more. (Hopefully you guys will have a Memorial Day sale??!!)

Went in Wednesday for cardio before work, did shoulders yesterday-

Started with shoulder press as usual. Was warming up and realized it was just not the day for strength so went with lighter work and lots of lateral raises of sorts SS throughout.

Push press
45x8
75x8
95x5
115x2
95x5 x3 sets

Iso lat shoulder press machine
55x8x4 sets

SS w/ banded face pulls

DB shoulder press
35x7-8x4 sets

SS with front/side lateral raises

Face down front lateral raises
15x12, 10x15, 5x20 (2 x’s dropset)

Rear delt destroyer set
20x50, 15x25, 10x15, 5x20, band pulses to failure


**********

Legs today

Started with about a 10-12 min mobility drill

Squats
Wu with 45/95/135
165x5
195x3
225x2 ugh still feeling weak-dropped back down
195x5x3 sets
135x8 pause sets (3 sets)

Hip thrusts
315x8x5 sets

Good mornings
85x8x3 sets

SS
Leg extensions
130x15x4 sets

Seated leg curls

Despite feeling weaker- I feel good. I’m sure it’s just hormonal or something. Definitely has nothing to do with the Ursa Major. Mood has been good and pretty positive.

Thanks! Glutes are a bit sore but most everything else seems fine. Did do some mobility work thing morning though- after applying Ursa Major! Oh, and I did take a muscle relaxer for some hip pain so that could have helped too. Haha

Do you have hip pain always or just after leg days?

Always...I have a tear in my right labrum as well as a bone spur, they are misaligned, and a possible tear in my left one. So the surrounding muscles get really tight. I’m working to fix the alignment issues but want to avoid surgery since the full recovery percentage isn’t very likely.

I agree! Haha I’m thankful it’s not worse though and I can work around it. Super glad that I can train pretty normally most days.

oh my.. hope everyone is ok.. including the little puppers!
I just talked to the neighbors and they all seem okay. The little dog is still in the hospital and probably will be for a few days but hopefully will pull through fine.

Haha that would be crazy!!

Sorry for the lack of updates...it’s just been a crazy week. I will be running out of ursa before the week is up. I am probably going to wait to take my final measurements and post my final review end of next week. I am holding some water due to what would be my cycle. So I want to be as accurate as I can with the results I’ve had. I will say again...I sure hope you have a Memorial Day sale!! Please!!!! Haha

Officially ran out on Saturday...but guess what came today?! Whoop whoop!! I took my final measurements and guess what...I’m DOWN 5 INCHES overall and up 1/2” on my glutes and quads!! Talk about happy!! For not being on a deficit- I’d say that’s freakin incredible!!!! Final review will be up soon! Thanks again you guys, for the opportunity to log!!

Would you be interested in beta testing a companion product to Ursa Major? It has this stuff:


So, in theory, it should help "problem areas" if applied directly to them.
Absolutely!!

Final review for Ursa Major:

I really enjoyed my run with Ursa Major. It ended up being right about 6 weeks sponsored but I am continuing on my own. Throughout the run I was applying 1.5ml twice a day. I applied either to arms/shoulders or back of knees and shins. Measuring is very easy with the marked dropper. Only had a very slight irritation on my arms about a week in. This was before alternating application locations. Only lasted that one day and never reoccured.

The smell is nice and it absorbs quickly. Unfortunately one bottle only last about 11 days when dosed at 3ml a day. Full price that gets pretty costly but they do have BOGO sales fairly often. I do wish there was a bigger bottle option just so you don’t waste so many glass bottles! Haha No negative sides. Only odd one was a change in the smell of my sweat and urine...slight increase in body temperature as well as slight calming/mood boosting effect.

Goal was to loose fat while trying to gain muscle. That’s exactly what happened! Calories went from ~ 2500 to 2750 Scale increased about 1-2 pounds but I am down 5 inches. Most of that was in my waist and hips. Gained 1/2” in my glutes and quads. The ability to be able to use a fat loss product in a deficit, maintenance, or surplus is huge!!

So overall very very happy with my results, if you couldn’t tell by the fact I’ve already purchased more. Haha Thank you guys at Apex Alchemy @nostrum420 @Renew1 as well as all of you guys that followed along throughout my log!!

**ps I posted this at the beginning of the log as well for easy access **
