First off, thanks to FINAFLEX and Montego1 for allowing me to log their product(s). I'm super-excited to not only try Crea-Trona for the first time, but to run Stimul8 longer than the one sample I MAY have tried (I had one, but I may have given it to my brother-in-law. He's a stim-noob, so sometimes I let him have my samples), and the Pump Max for my second bottle run, BUT, my first bottle I ran was during a low in my training. By low, I mean inconsistent, nursing a pulled groin, and just not entirely into it, mentally.

ABOUT ME:

Starting weight: 192-194, relatively low sodium.

I'm about 9 months into being consistent in my workout routine, and that same amount in calorie/macro-counting. 6 months into consistent weight lifting (the previous 3mo was p90x), and I make my own workouts, for the most part, but by watching other logs for ideas. I've learned a lot silently watching Montego1's and wasme's logs, and as a matter of fact I'm going to be attempting my own version of GVT because of them.

Anyway, I can carry on about why I'm where I'm at, but that does no good for what I want to accomplish during this log. So...
I'm going to go with a 2200-3000 calorie diet depending on how my body responds, with a semi-refeed Wednesday, and another mega-refeed Sunday. If possible, Sunday will be my only rest day. If I feel I need extra muscular rest for GVT, then I'll turn Wednesday into an HIIT day or rest day.

GOAL:
My goal during this log is to focus on widening my back and spending some time improving my pecs. Shoulders are also a concern, so if I can squeeze in shoulders on Saturday (for a second time) then I will. I know my calories seem low, but I've done it this way before and if I feel like it's hampering my recovery and energy, then I'll adjust as needed.

WHAT AM I EXPECTING FROM FINAFLEX?:

Stimul8:

I'm looking for focus and drive. Anything extra would be great. I want that "cuss myself out for an extra rep" kinda feeling, and based on what I've seen from other logs I believe this will be achievable with Stimul8, and needed for GVT.

Max Pump:

I'm looking for visual motivation here. I know based on my little experience that this WILL happen. I know that I'll double size on several occasions, especially during GVT, and I'll be pushed to break that max-rep limit.

Crea-Trona:

I'm looking for recovery. I love pushing for DOMs, and I know GVT will bring them, so I'm hoping for relative muscle-support and DOM recovery for my 6-6.5 hours (if I stay asleep, which is doubtful) sleep and early workouts.

I've steadily stuck with a 1/2 serving (2.5-3g) Creatine for a while now, and I'm looking forward to what I experience with this product.

I need to add also, that I have been on a stim break for a month or longer. Well, with Jack3D micro here and there, but mostly nothing, and nothing more until I get these products in.

Alright, here's the product run-down and suggested use:

Yeah man, I've silently watched Montego and Snag's since joining AM for their knowledge. Didn't know until this log-opp that they were FINAFLEX reps, or reps really at all.

Oh, and I will be starting with 1/2 a scoop. I've been on a stim break for a while...

Yeah bro, I'm super excited, and very grateful.

I also get to be two weeks into this stack when I see my brother for the first time in 2.5 years, and the first time that we (are supposed to) workout together. Ever. Right, drewsicle3210?

Yeah, it's official. She took it. She said she has to deal with me ignoring her while I log sometimes...

That's ok. My other shaker holds a little more water and with all the goodies from FINAFLEX the extra H2O won't hurt.

Joking on the 2 scoops.

Pre:
1 scoop protein 45m pre, with coffee

All mixed with 20 oz water, 15 pre:

5g BCAA's
2 Crea-Trona uncapped
4 Max Pump uncapped
1/2 scoop Stimul8

I mixed these prior to adding the BCAA's, and it mixed perfectly in a shaker. Of course, once I added the BCAA's there was BCAA icebergs on top.

The taste was only semi-bitter, but still tasty. Not too bitter, not too sweet. Yesterday I did a finger-test of the Stimul8, and it tasted really good. Tomorrow I will take the Stimul8 by itself with the recommended amount of water, taking the pills in pill form, just to experience the taste. I think I will try 3/4 scoop tomorrow to see how tht affects me, but the 1/2 was definitely plenty for leg day (see notes at the bottom).

All tempo was done 4.0.2.0, but on some reps the extension movement was 3-4 instead of 2, as it got harder to push off.

SUPER SET 1:

Barbell Squat 246.67

I went with a wider stance here to hit my glutes/hams a little more, but had I realized there wouldn't be a leg extension machine available when I needed it I would've gone narrow.
:/

Set 1 : 185x10

Ab Rollout on Knees 6

Set 1 : 5 Laps/Reps
Set 2 : 6 Laps/Reps with tempo.
Set 3 : 5 Laps/Reps
|
Notes:

I did experience the warmth that everyone else has mentioned so far, but it was brief. I think just the first two sets of squats. I'm naturally a heavier sweater and even more so with GVT, so that may have cooled me off. Also, my gym is usually pretty cool at that hour.

I was COVERED in sweat at the end of the squats. No nausea, no awkward feelings at all. I had extreme energy and focus, and would've spent another hour in the gym of I had time (was there 1:05:00) even though my legs were smoked. My quads were the very much increased in size, and I would've loved to see them if I ha been able to do extensions. Next week I'll switch the ext's with curls jugs to make sure I get them in, and I'll do a before and after photo(s) of the pump.

Other than that, I didn't (not noticed at this point, anyway) experience any tingles, or any other type of side with 1/2 scoop.

Side Note: My stomach was upset PRIOR to taking any supps, and I have not had any stomach issues since taking them. May have eaten something bad yesterday because I didn't take supps yesterday either.

You should take a pic of Stimul8 mixed up in your shaker. Curious to see what color it is actually. This in no way affects anything, I just like the color green & haven't gotten to try it yet :)

3/4 scoop Stimul8, 12.5oz water. I mixed it last night. It mixed in with ease, and as you can see there was no separation over night.

Weight:
Pre coffee, nood- 193.6
Pre workout, post all pre's and clothed- 200.5 (according to gym scale)

Pre:
45 prior-
1 scoop protein powder
Coffee

15 prior-
3/4 scoop Stimul8, mixed with 12.5oz water. The directions say 1 scoop with 8-16oz, so I didn't go with 8 because I don't like things that sweet. At 3/4sc w/ 12.5 oz water, it was almost perfect for my taste preference. I mixed it last night in the FINAFLEX shaker, and it had zero icebergs leftover. After sitting in the fridge over night, there was no separation or any accumulation of powder at the bottom (like some creatines do).

4x Max Pump uncapped AND
2x Crea-Trona uncapped AND
5g BCAA's mixed with
24oz water.
I seriously meant to take them in pill form to avoid the taste, but I had already uncapped them. Fortunately, the bitterness was not that bad. Either my palate was warmed up from the STIMUL8, or 24oz of water is perfect for diluting the pill-taste.

Today's workout was Chest and Back, GVT style. Everything in a 4.0.2.0 tempo.

SUPER SET 1 and 1.5:

All, including chins, with tempo.

Dumbbell Bench Press 93.33

3 notches here: flat, mid, incline, mid, flat, mid, etc. I stole this from Kenpo and Reggie, but my bench only has the 3 notches to incline instead of whatever they normally use, so I just kept moving it up and down.

Set 1 : 70x10
Set 2 : 70x10
Set 3 : 70x9
Set 4 : 65x10
Set 5 : 65x8
Set 6 : 60x10
Set 7 : 60x8
Set 8 : 60x10
Set 9 : 60x9
Set 10 : 60x9
|
Chin Up 227.23

According to the gym scale I'm 200.5 lbs. I'm going to borrow another method from Kenpo and strut logging my pull-ups by the cruel weight I'm pulling. I did what I could with BW and used the assisted weight machine to finish and hit 10. These were hard a **** with the tempo, an. It doesn't help that I've put on 13 pounds in two months.


Set 1 : 200.5x4
Set 1 : 130.5x4
Set 1 : 90.5x3

Set 2 : 200.5x4
Set 2 : 130.5x3

Set 7 : 200.5x2
Set 7 : 120.5x2
Set 7 : 90.5x4
Set 7 : 60.5x2

** I must not have logged a few sets. I think I stopped after set 7 (which is this last one) because I just didn't have any left and switched to reverse grip rows...

Barbell Bent Over Row 126.67

Set 1 : 105x10
Set 2 : 105x10
Set 3 : 105x10
Set 4 : 105x10
Set 5 : 105x10

^ Time to up the weight a little...

One arm push-ups x6, x9//8L (w/ medi ball assist/leverage. I did these between sets 3-4 and 4-5 of rows.

1 chin up w/ a 20s neg (right before stretching and leaving)
|
Notes:

Well, after a month off of stims, 3/4 scoop STIMUL8 on my second day in is a little much. The Thermo effect, the sweat, the drive to grab an extra rep, and the focus are all awesome. My HR however, was through the roof. But, it was better after dropping my rest periods from 30s/45s to 45/60 (from chest to back, then resetting).
So, 1/2 scoop the rest of this week and I'll try 3/4 again next week.

PUMP:
My veinage was outta control crazy with the reverse grip rows. I can't wait to see my biceps on arm day.

Great job brother. I bet those pumps were borderline painful. Gameday and Max Pump always made me have to take my watch off because It got too tight during the workouts

You should take a pic of Stimul8 mixed up in your shaker. Curious to see what color it is actually. This in no way affects anything, I just like the color green & haven't gotten to try it yet :)

Great update again. You gotta be either a skinny mo fo or a beast to hit ten sets of ten with tempo on bw pull ups. I can hit maybe two sets but that's it when using the right tempo.
