Firstly,

"This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition."

Now that we have that out of the way.

I have two bottles of Vector. Will run for 8 weeks. Goal is lean mass growth (scale and measurements UP), am lifting for size, not strength; although I am sure to get stronger. I am finishing up on a four week run of DAA, at the end of this week. I started Vector today to bridge this last week since typically you don't get much out of the first week of a supplement, save stims. I have taken two Vector before breakfast, and have taken two with my pre workout coffee. About to hit triceps and shoulders. I will be consuming the same amount of calories as I was prior to Vector, and on the same training routine. In effect, all variables before Vector will be the same. Will post weight and measurements from beginning, and weight and measurements at end of run. Will log experiences in between. I am running Virtus now as well, dosing .5ml every morning to keep estrogen low.

Pre lift measurements. Should update every two weeks. Weighed also on a digital scale, on industrial carpet, that said 171, the mechanical said 173, so I will go median 172lbs.

So I guess on workout days, 3 pre workout, and 3 with dinner. On non workout days, 3 morning, 3 dinner.

In! I love this product! Eat big and stay well hydrated!
Welcome. Calories typically between 3000 and 3500 each day. I have 2300 calories between lunch and breakfast, and then dinner is around 1000 or more.

Working legs this morning.

Dosed 4 Vector already.

2 breakfast. 2 with coffee about 2 hours later. Think I will do it this way for this week just to be saturated with Vector before my lift, and then switch to 3 and 3 next week.

Dosed .5ml Virtus for estro control.

Right now I have no opinion on Vector, this being day 2.

Calories always between 3 and 3500k. At 173ish, should be enough to continue to grow.

Mostly time under tension lifts. Legs Tuesday, biceps Wednesday, chest Friday, back Sunday, and triceps/shoulders Monday. When I am not doing a TUT lift, I attempt to overload, and perform a weight on the set that I can hit 4 to 6 times. Overall goal is growth, not strength or records.

I love that about Vector. The dreams / nightmares. All the same to me, and multiples back-to-back.
Jumping back on soon with it. Enjoy!

Dosed 2 Vector with vitex, p5p, genoflex, and Virtus. Finished my eggs, stomach was unsettled, and I had nausea. Interesting dream last night. No increase of appetite. Took the vitex and p5p to lower prolactin from DAA, which I have completely dropped as of yesterday.

Havent had the greatest rest in the last 3 to 4 days, nor have I been able to lift from Wednesday through Friday, due to work schedule. Was able to hit chest today after work thankfully. Was a bit shotty in my opinion; didnt feel as strong in general, or energetic. My right shoulder was also giving me issues, when it usually doesn't, and from the get go. Incline DB press was higher than last week, so that was good.

Appetite has not increased on Vector. I am going to dose Virtus EOD due to my estrogen possibly being too low. I believe my muscles look fuller. Hoping to get some good rest tonight to be able to hit back hard tomorrow.

Performed back today. Was better than my chest workout.

Time under tension (tut)

BB bent over rows
1x10x135 (tut)
1x10x145 (tut)
3x8x155 (tut)
4x5x205

Deadlift
1x2x315
2x1x335

BW pullups
4x8xBW (TUT)

Shrugs/rope lat pushdown/seated row superset 3 sets

Weight is around 173 with my gym clothing on. Was in ketosis prior to lifting, so I had ketones and glycogen to lift off of. Right shoulder was nagging on the pullups. Dosing Virtus EOD to not crush estrogen. Dosed 4 vector already. No noticeable hunger growth. I thought I looked decent in the gym, had great vascularity, and a good pump. Been trying to lower my prolactin as well, as I believe that, and too low estrogen have been giving me some overall performance issues. Bad sleep, fat accumulation, achy joints. This is only the first week on Vector. Will be doing measurement checks next week.

Officially a week into Vector today. Have said that for the last two days lol, but today it has been a week. Scale in the gym with gym clothing on, 174.5. Today as you may tell was legs.

Squat

2x10x215 TUT
1x9x215 TUT
1x8x 215 TUT dropped to 135 and did 12 reps

Calf raises
4x6x160 and then final set was a drop set

Leg press
3x4x733. I raised the weight because u thought I would get more, happy with the reps I did do though

Leg extension
3x9x140 TUT last set drop set.

Impressions of Vector.

My appetite had not really gone up or down. I am on a modified ketogenic diet, so that may have part in it; since I can easily burn fat and carbs for fuel, I dont have the up and down blood sugar insulin roller coaster. Energy lately has felt suffered, but today I felt more refreshed than the last few days. I think I look fuller muscular wise even considering I consume less carbs than someone in a typical bulk because of the modified keto diet. Excited to get this week out of the way so I can provide my bi monthly measurements.

Don't know how I missed this log but in. Better late than never. Hopefully you get the results you want from Vector. I know a lot of people have and it's great to have a few people logging the product unsponsored at the same time. The Solution is doing a log on it as well.

Thanks for coming a long. I'm following his log as well! About a week in, 7 weeks left, and depending on my pay, and how I feel after 4 weeks will determine if I extend to 12 weeks. Goal is lean mass, measurements and scale upward trend. Besides waistline of course.

Yes sir! A lot of people (non-sponsored) have run Vector with great success. I don't recall any sponsored logs come to think of it, on any of our products. So, quite a few people have put out their hard earned money for Vector and given their honest reviews all over.

Sidebar: We're also looking towards the next Anabolic and our Pre-workout that is going to dominate as another
industry first.

Much love!

Tons of un-sponsered logs and comments for Vector. I don't believe I have ever seen a BLR sponsered log for any of their products. Its not how BLR works.

Weigh in this morning was 174. Seems as I bounce between 173 and 174 lately. Measurements in picture. Not sure if this chest measurement is accurate, or the previous one was accurate. Had my father in law measure me today, and two weeks ago the gym owner measured me; both of them said they weren't really sure how to do it properly. I do know though that my waist has gone down, and my weight has stayed the same for the past couple weeks. This means less fat/water. Couple weeks ago I got off DAA, and a few days ago I introduced Mucuna in my morning and evening drinks to lower my prolactin which had risen with DAA usage. Did a triceps/shoulder work today.

Dips
2x10xBW
3x8x45lb

One arm DB tricep extension
4x15x10 TUT Hit bench with my in law for a few sets as well.

Rope pushdown
4x8x47.5 TUT

Supered with face pulls
4x8x77.5

DB skull crusher
3x9x50 TUT

Supered with lateral raises
3x10x15 TUT

Workouts lately seem more taxing, more demanding on my body because I am hitting muscle groups 4 to 5 days in a row due to work schedule change. I'm not too personally focused on the numbers I'm pushing, but more focused on the tension and intensity I am placing on my muscle in the gym because I want to grow.

Was surprised that my body got back into ketosis this fast. I had 5 slices of that calorie count equally 1775 calories for lunch, which was after 3pm. At .7mml ketone count, meaning I am in nutritional ketosis, oh ma gah, when though I had carbs for lunch. Shhhh... Dont tell the nutrition police as they will be skeptical even with evidence. The human body can metabolize fat, even if there is glycogen in the body.

Morning fasted weight 176.5, with gym clothing on. Still the highest fasted weight I have been at. Have had a major headache throughout the night and morning. Not sure if it is the storm system, or I am taking too much Mucuna...

Have been in a rut for like a week now. Flu like symptoms, minus puking, and fever. Workouts have suffered, and I dont know how to just not hit the gym, unless I feel so horrid I have to lie down. I cant even nap, whether sick or healthy. Why hit the gym when feeling down? Stimulate protein synthesis. Hoping these body aches, lethargy, and headaches leave soon.
