This is just a quick post so AX can see I've started my log. I'll post all pertinent info tomorrow.

Best of luck, I will be following along for sure!

I'm 24 years old. I'm 6', 195 lbs.
Bi's: 16 5/8"
Forearms: 14 1/4"
Quads: 23 1/4"
Calves: 15" (OK, stop laughing now).
OK, now for the goodies. I will be testing Anabolic Xtreme's new product, Mass FX. BUT, it will not be taken by itself, it will be stacked with one of their already released products, Hyperdol. Now, this is the Alpha Test. It turns out they want to add something to their original Mass FX formula, but they're gonna let us test this version anyway. When they make the second version, it will be the Beta Test. If all goes well, I will be doing that test as well.
Here's what they say about Mass FX:
Mass FX contains innovative ingredients that potentiate natural testosterone levels and give results in the first week. This pro-anabolic optimizer was designed to be stacked with Hyperdrol™ to create the most potent lean muscle building stack available today. Mass FX helps support testosterone levels, deliver rock hard pumps, promote the Alpha Male mentality, increase aggression, build xtreme muscle mass and give immediate strength gains. Mass FX will deliver the results you want in just a few days of usage and will continue though out your cycle.
» WITHIN YOUR FIRST FEW DAYS:
Mass FX starts to kick in. You should be feeling the Alpha Male mentality. Workouts will be more intense and recovery will be quicker.
» AFTER 1 WEEK:
You will notice muscle pumps and hardness like you have never experienced before. Your strength is now beginning to increase. Your veins are starting to pop. You can feel that Mass FX is working and you like it!
» AFTER 2-3 WEEKS AND BEYOND:
The pro-anabolic optimizer is in full effect stimulating lean muscle mass and strength gains. Your muscles look and feel dramatically harder, stronger and fuller. Your strength is increasing beyond what you expected from an all natural product that doesn’t have the nasty side effects of pro-hormones. By now you know that Mass FX works and your gains have only begun. While you finish out your 6-8 week cycle, each week your muscles will become stronger, harder, fuller and bigger. Your workouts will continue to intensify, your Alpha Male mentality will continue to dominate and your test levels will be like nothing you have ever felt before.
Welcome to the world of Mass FX.
And the magic ingredient is: (3b,5a,6a,25R)-Spirostan-3,6-diol, Bioperene
They say it's 100% herbal and they have a custom synthesis on an extract that is derived from a wild plant in the DaXingAnLing virgin forest. That's all I know.
Here's what they say about Hyperdrol:
Hyperdrol™ is a lean mass building Herbal Hypertrophic compound from Anabolic Xtreme, the designers of the world’s most effective muscle building formulations. Hyperdrol™ has been exclusively created and formulated for Anabolic Xtreme by Author L. Rea. Hyperdrol™ contains a matrix of four herbal ingredients, each of which uses a proprietary extraction process to obtain a precise matrix of unique compounds. These work synergistically together like nothing else on the market. There is no shutdown with Hyperdrol™ and users can cycle for 12 to 16 weeks. Independent product testers have reported gains of about one pound of lean body mass (not weight) per week.
Cissus Quadrangularis: Cissus (SEA-SUS) is one key to Hyperdrol™. Do not confuse the Cissus in Hyperdrol™ with that of other products on the market. AX has learned how to balance the extraction process to highlight the positive effect of the right metabolites.
6-Bromodione: 6-BrAD™ is a new anti-aromatase that keeps estrogen intact while testosterone rises - but it also inhibits negative feedback thus inducing an increase in total testosterone and preventing natural test production from shutting down. With 6-BrAD, we have created a favorable natural androgen to estrogen ratio (like you had as a teenager) which will allow for better body composition with fewer potential rebound issues.
Forsholii Diterpene Complex: Similar to Forskolin (Forslean™) in action but much more bio-available to the body allowing a significantly smaller dose to be used with greater affect. Our exclusive Forsholi Diterpene extract helps generate lean body mass by stimulating cAMP, which increases the circulation of hypertrophic hormones to create lean hard gains!!!
Urtica Dioica Lignan Complex: Using a proprietary extraction process, we have taken the common Stinging Nettle Herb to a new level to synergistically increase testosterone levels while concurrently combating BPH which can arise from DHT conversion, a side effect of any raise in test levels.
We have been told that if we are <200 lbs, we will take three a day of both Mass FX and Hyperdrol. >200 lbs will take four or more, with six the max. I would personally like to take 4, but I will do as they ask. They're trying to get the dosing just right. That's all I have for now, I will get some new pics up within a few days.
09-23-2006, 11:19 AM
I'm currently working out Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. I do one or two warm-up sets, and three or four working sets. I pyramid the weight up and the reps down. Reps usually go about 10,8,6. Sometimes as high as 12 and as low as 4. Most sets are taken to failure. I often do drop sets, rest/pause and forced reps. I go as heavy as I can with good form. Sometimes I cheat a little. I also stretch between just about every set.
About a month ago, I unfortunately injured my right rotator cuff doing guess what....bench, that's right. Figures, I did nine reps with 225, one more rep than I've ever done with that much, and I hurt myself. Last October I tore my left pec attempting a 1RM of 300 (not a real bad tear I guess, it didn't get black and blue, but I needed physical therapy and I couldn't start benching heavy again until about May this year. Boy was that painful the next morning).
Anyway, my point is I'm just easing back into my chest workout, and I'm going easy on back and shoulders. My rotator cuff is feeling pretty good, I should be lifting relatively heavy again within a couple weeks. I'm still good to go on legs and arms. I wanted to wait until my rotator cuff was 100% before I started this test, but AX said I couldn't wait more than one week after I get the products, so I'll just start it when I get it. (Should be here Monday).
Wednesday, Back: Weighted Pull-ups, Deadlift, Bent Over rows, Cybex Plate Loaded Rows, Reverse Close grip Pulldowns (I'm just starting these this week, I was doing wide regular grip)
Thursday, Chest and Hammies: Flat bench, Incline DB bench, Decline Smith Machine bench, Flat DB Flyes, DB Pullovers, Cable Flyes low to high (A lot of chest work, but I need it), Stiff legged DB deadlift, One leg lying leg curls
Saturday, Quads, Delts and traps: Squats, One legged Smith Machine Squats, Leg Extensions, Standing Barbell Shoulder press, Side/Front/Rear DB raises, DB or Behind the back Barbell Shrugs
Sunday, Bi's and Tri's: Rope pushdowns, Weighted Dips (Not since I hurt my rotator cuff), Skull Crushers, Overhead DB Extension(added this recently. Using a barbell was starting to hurt my wrist too much), Reverse Grip One handed Pushdowns, Standing Barbell Curls, Incline DB Curls (Not alternating), Standing Hammer Curls (Alternating), Concentration Curl
Additionally, I don't have a set day for calves, I usually train them twice a week (pathetic chicken legs, I hate you! Ahem). Forearms are usually trained on arm day with DB wrist and reverse wrist curls. Sometimes barbell, sometimes both. (I decided a month ago to make my forearms big). My leg strength may seem low compared to my other body parts. Most likely because I didn't train legs nearly as much as I should have while I was in the Marine Corps from Feb '01 to Jan '05.
OK, I haven't actually counted calories or anything since I was 17. But I can tell you this, I consume between 220 and 260 grams of protein a day. I'm pretty sure I'm getting close to 4000 calories a day. So I guess that makes my protein roughly 25% of my daily calories. Hmmm, a little low, huh?
I'm careful that I don't eat too much sugar and bad fats. The only real problem in my diet is Sodium intake. I often eat TV dinners and ramen noodles, so my sodium intake is probably astrofrickinnomical. I know I shouldn't eat that stuff, I'm trying to cut back.
Anyway, I'm going to attempt to count my calories and what not while doing this log. Then I'll see how close my estimates are.
One more note about Mass FX, they say it's dark brown in color and smells bad, which is a good sign. They basically say that means that it's a quality dose of the main ingredient.
Oh, and my measurements in the above post were flexed and cold.
09-23-2006, 03:45 PM
Other supplements I will be taking during this log will be:
VPX Zero Carb Protein, Graham Cracker
Ultimate Nutrition Horsepower, Lemon Lime
MHP Activite Sport
Anabolic Xtreme Perfect Cycle
Now, for those of you wondering why I'm using Horsepower during this log, it's because I'm going on my third tub. AX asked us not to change any variables when we got picked to test, so I haven't. I did use Controlled Labs Black Hole during the wait, but I finished that a couple weeks ago, the review for which can be found at: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=903912
As for the Perfect Cycle (which is liver support for those of you that don't know), I don't need to be taking it with Mass FX and Hyperdol. I'm just using it because I've been using creatine and other supplements for quite some time and I like to have some liver support once in a while.
09-23-2006, 05:35 PM
Good luck. Subscribed.
09-26-2006, 02:44 PM
According to the tracking #, the estimated delivery for my Mass FX and Hyperdrol is October 2. I think I'll have it by the weekend, but who knows? Anyway, I'll post again when I have it.
09-29-2006, 04:12 PM
My Mass FX and Hyperdrol have arrived. I took my first dose about an hour ago (when I got it). After today, my dosing will be: 1 of each with breakfast around 6 or 7, one of each with lunch around 12 or 1, and 1 of each around 5 or 6pm before I workout.
Oh, and the Mass FX doesn't smell too bad, kinda like fish food.
09-30-2006, 04:43 PM
Today was quads, delts and calves.
Squats: 10x225, 6x315, 5x315 I should've gone for six on the third set, I guess I pussed out. Anyway, I only did four reps with 315 last week, so I'm goin' up. My lower back doesn't appreciate it, but my quads do.
One Legged Smith Squats: 10x175, 10x195, 10x205 Ten more pounds than last week
Leg Ext: 10x100, 10x120 The last set was a drop set to 60 then 30
Delts: I hurt my right shoulder a month ago and I can't lift heavy yet. Same goes for chest.
Standing Barbell Press: 12x75, 10x85, 10x85
Side Raises: 10x15, 10x20
Front Raise: 2x10x15's These hurt because it's my front delt that's injured
Rear Raise: 10x40, 10x50
Dumbbell Shrugs: 10x100's, 10x110's, 9x110's The last set was a drop set to 60's then 30's
Standing Calf Raise: 20x50, 12x100, 12x120, 12x120 The last few were drop sets to 60, then BW
The only calf machine my gym has is a standing calf machine. I started doing donkey calf raises when I get home with my wife on my back, but she was working today. I used to use a donkey calf raise machine when I lived in Califorinia and when I started using that was when I actually started to see an improvement in my calves.
I also did some rotator cuff work and abductor and adductor work. I took my Hyperdrol a little after six last night and it didn't effect my sleep, I'm about to take my third dose of it today at 7:35pm, I'll see if that affects it. Overall, I'm not noticing much yet. I can't say if the little extra I lifted compared to last week can be attributed to the Mass FX and Hyperdrol. I'll see how bi's and tri's go tomorrow. See ya' tomorrow.
I forgot, I've only been weighing 193 all week, not the aformentioned 195. Dammit.
10-01-2006, 11:44 AM
Today is day 2 of my log, although I've only had one dose so far today because I worked out this morning. I'm gonna have my second dose soon. I weighed in at 194.2 this morning after I pooped. Probably because of all the pizza I ate last night. Today's workout was:
Tri's, bi's, forearms and abs
Rope Pushdowns: 10x130, 9x140(I did 10 last week), 8x150 Same as last week.
Skullcrushers: 10x110, 8x120(2 forced reps), 7x120(2 forced reps) This was two reps better than last week, although last week this was my third exercise.
Overhead DB Ext(both arms together): 10x80, 8x90, 5x95 Last week I did 10 reps with 100's, but it was also my second exercise.
Reverse Grip One arm pushdowns: 10x50, 10x50 (2 forced reps), 8x50(2 forced reps) Last week I did 8 reps with 60 on the second set.
Overall it was a pretty good tricep workout. Skullcrushers was the only exercise I seemed to better than last week. I didn't do any forced reps last week with skullcrushers because I didn't have a spotter.
Standing Barbell Curls (Straight Bar): 10x115, 7x135(1 forced rep. This was one rep better than last week), 5x135 (1 forced rep. My buddy barely helped. I did 5 reps by myself last week) After the last set I did some rest/pause. I rested about 30 seconds then busted out 2 more reps. I did this three times.
Incline DB Curls (simultaneously): 7x60's, 5x65's, 5x65's Last set was a drop set to 30's These went well. Last week was 6x60, 5x60
Standing Hammers(Alternating): 6x60, 6x60, 7x55 This is unchanged from last week.
DB Concentration Curls: 10x30, 10x30(2 forced reps), 9x30(2 forced reps)
Pretty good bi workout.
DB Wrist Curls: 10x30, 10x30(1 FR), 10x25
DB Reverse Wrist Curls: 10x15, 10x15 Left wrist hurt
Core Strength Exercises: Push-up pos. held 65 seconds. Then on my elbows held 65 seconds. Side bridges held 60 seconds.
Incline sit-ups: 1 set of 25
Hanging Leg raises: 1 set of 15
I cut my ab workout short. It was a good workout today. I don't really think the stack is effecting my lifts yet, however, this morning after I took it, I think I started to feel the alpha male mentality and a little aggressive. I felt like I wanted to fu-- some sh-- up and I couldn't wait to get to the gym. I don't work out again until Wednesday, but I'll post how I feel the next couple days.
I almost forgot, I'll post pics tonight.
10-01-2006, 05:55 PM
I know how the chest injury is. :(
Hope you recover full ASAP and you get good results with every other body part too.
10-01-2006, 07:43 PM
Here's some pics. All pics taken today, October 1, 2006. (About an hour ago). I also want to add that I had no probems sleeping last night after taking the Hyperdrol and Mass FX at 7:30pm. We'll see about tonight because I forgot to take them earlier because I was watching a DVD of the finals of the 2006 Arnold Classic. I took them about an hour ago and am going to bed as soon as I finish posting this.
10-01-2006, 07:45 PM
10-01-2006, 08:40 PM
Pics are lookin good.
Nice bi's and obliques for sure. I'd say the main thing you could work on is chest.
And definately a sweet tat on your stomach.
10-02-2006, 02:34 PM
Pics are lookin good.
Nice bi's and obliques for sure.
Hey thanks man.
I'd say the main thing you could work on is chest.
Yup, I know. It's always been my weakest bodypart. I tore part of my left pec last October trying a second attempt at a 1RM of 300 on flat bench. I never should've tried it a second time, I should've just tried 290, I know I could've gotten that.
Anyway, my chest was getting stronger again, then I got the delt injury doing flat bench a little over a month ago. I think my body might not like flat bench with a barbell. I may have to start using dumbbells or the smith machine from now on. I did a light chest workout last week. Flat bench w/ 95lbs bothered my delt a little, but inclines with 65 lb dumbbells didn't bother it at all.
10-02-2006, 03:06 PM
I'm about 2 months post left pec tear too. Just did my first chest workout last week. I'm starting very light and don't want to risk another injury. No more maxing probably ever.
10-02-2006, 03:41 PM
Nice and slow is the best way to come back. Egos are great but stimulation not anniliation keps the muscle! And i like your log bro.
10-02-2006, 05:52 PM
Not too much to report about today. I didn't work out. I didn't feel any different. I didn't notice much alpha male mentality or aggression. However, about Hyperdrol and sleep. I forgot to take my dose earlier last night because I was watching a DVD of the 2006 Arnold Classic Men's finals. I didn't remember until 9:30. Now, the night before, I took it at 7:30 and went to bed about three hours later. No problem. So, using that logic, if I took it at 9:30 last night, I definitely should've been good by 12:30.
Well, I couldn't sleep for sh-- last night. I'm not saying it was because of the Hyperdrol, but it could've been based on what other people have said. I pretty much tossed and turned until about 1:30, then I slept until 4:30 when I had to pee, then the alarm at 5. Aarrghh.
Anyway, I'm gonna try not to take my last dose of Hyperdrol and Mass FX any later than probably 6:30 from now on, except maybe on Fri and Sat when I'll be up later.
Good thing AX sent a few samples of Stimulant X. I took one of those for the first time this morning at 6:30. I didn't notice any particular energizing effects, but I didn't feel tired all day. That was nice. Thanks for the samples guys.
10-02-2006, 06:11 PM
Go for the earlier times.
10-02-2006, 06:26 PM
Go for the earlier times.
10-03-2006, 04:56 PM
Not much to report today. I didn't feel much different from yesterday. I slept better last night after taking my last dose earlier. I was gonna weigh myself this morning but didn't because I got up late, so I weighed myself about 5 minutes ago after coming home from work. The scale said 195.2. Sounds a bit heavy to me. We'll see what it says in the morning.
AND, tomorrow I will be conducting a back and calf workout, which I will post the results of. I hope you are all looking forward to it, I know I am.
10-04-2006, 05:22 PM
I weighed in at 192.8 this morning. :mad: I hate it when the scale says I'm any less than 193. I had a pretty good back workout tonight, though. Oh yeah, and calves.
Pull-ups: 10xBW, 10x30, 9x30, 9xBW Last week was: 12xBW, 10x25, 6x25
Deadlifts: 14x225, 10x315, 4x365 LW: 12x225, 10x315, 8x335
Bent Over Rows(w/ curl bar, palms out): 10x200, 7x220, 8x220 LW: 2x10x200
Cybex Plate Loaded Row(Palms facing each other): 10x140, 9x160, 7x180 LW: 10x110, 10x130, 8x160
Reverse Close Grip Pulldowns: 10x100, 8x120, 7x120 LW: 2x8x130
Standing Calf Raise: 20x50, 15x120 (DS to 50, then BW), 10x140 (DS to 60, then BW. This has gone up
Donkey Calf Raise: 2 Max sets w/ wife on back (between 130 and 135 lbs. Oh wait, she just told me she weighed 132.0 this morning)
Most of my lifts went up, so it was definitely a good workout. Although, I was deadlifting 365 for 6 about 5 weeks ago, but I took it easy on back for a while when I hurt my delt. I'm going for 375 next week, as long as my back feels good. I've never gone higher than 365.
I think there's a possibility the Mass FX and Hyperdrol are making me stronger. I was feeling really good in the gym and I didn't wanna leave. I felt like I could've kept working out for a while. And my biceps are looking bigger. Hmmm.
Anyway, I think I just may be starting to feel it. It's subtle, but I think it's coming and I like it.
10-04-2006, 09:32 PM
Most are feeling it even by Day 2 or 3 so you definately should be feeling something. ;)
10-05-2006, 06:51 PM
Day 6 up in this beotch. Week one is almost done. Jeez, that means only a few weeks left. Bummer. Anyway, I weighed in at 192.8 this morning, exactly the same thing I weighed yesterday. At least I wasn't lighter. Today was chest and hamstrings. I still have to go light on chest because of the front delt injury, but mostly on barbell flat bench. I was able to do pretty good weights on the other exercises.
So, this Mass FX and Hyperdrol stack has me feeling good in the gym and I get real hyped up before I go. It's weird, I don't really notice it as much other times of the day. Today, I took my pills (last dose) as I was leaving work. It took me about 20 or 25 minutes to get home. I hopped on the computer real quick and before I knew it I'm like, "OK, I wanna get my ass to the gym and just go apesh--." I usually try to psych myself up before I go to the gym, but I never feel like I've been feeling with the Mass FX/Hyperdrol. I also noticed more vascularity today and I noticed more of a pump yesterday and today(more so today).
So, this stuff has me feeling good. When I'm in the gym, I don't wanna stop. I wanna lift longer and heavier. I'm not completely sold on this stuff yet, but if things keep going like this and if it gets better, I will be. Without further ado, my workout:
Incline DB Press: 12x55, 10x70, 10x80(I was doing 100's before my injury), LW: 12x35, 12x45, 12x60
Flat Barbell Press: 12x95, 12x115, 12x135(I was doing 9x225 before injury), No pain in delt, LW: 12x95, 12x95, 20x95 Slight pain in delt
Incline DB Flyes: 12x30, 12x40
Cable Flyes, Low to high: 10x50, 10x60, 8x70(Drop set to 35), LW: 12x30, 10x40, 10x40
DB Pullovers: 10x30, 10x45 (I'm going light on these, too.), 10x40, 10x40
DB Stiff Leg Deads: 10x55, 10x70
Leg Curls (One leg at a time): 8x50, 8x50
I would've done more sets for hams, but it was late and I had to get home. I was pleased with today's workout. My delt is getting better. That's good. No workout tomorrow. Quads and Delts on Saturday. See ya'.
10-06-2006, 07:16 PM
Not much to say about today. This morning I weighed in at 194.2. I upped my dose of Mass FX today to four a day. Quads and delts tomorrow, and I should probably do some abs, too. Maybe I'm just seein' things, but my muscles are looking a tad bit fuller. Sweet.
10-07-2006, 06:51 PM
I weighed in at a whopping 196.2 this morning! I think that may partly be from holding extra water from all the sodium I had in my TV dinners last night. I upped my dose of HD to four today. Since I'm taking four of each now, I can take two of each at once right? I thought I remember admin saying that. I took two of each before my workout today. Today was quads and delts:
Squats: 11x225, 6x315, 6x315 I did one more rep on my last set than I did last week. I was determined on getting seven, but I barely got the sixth one up. Next week.
One leg Smith Squats: 10x195, 10x215, 7x235 I used a higher weight on this
Leg Ext: 10x100, 10x120, 8x140
Standing Barbell Press: 12x95, 8x115, 9x115 My delts getting better. I only went up to 85 last week. I should be doing 135 again soon.
Behind the back Barbell Shrugs: 12x225, 10x275 DS to 225 then 135
Side Raises (one at a time): 12x20, 10x25
Front Raise: Decided not to do this. It hurts my delt too much.
Rear Raise: 10x50, 10x50 I should've gone higher on this
I also did rotator cuff exercises and abductor and adductor work. My lazy ass didn't do abs. I'll do 'em tomorrow with bi's and tri's. No noticeable difference yet upping the dose of both to four.
10-08-2006, 06:43 PM
Day 9 and things are going well. I weighed 196.0 this morning. I thought doubling up on the dose before I go to the gym would really get my psyched, but that is not the case so far. I did have a pretty good arm workout today, though. Some of it anyway. My arms got tired pretty quick today.
Rope Pushdowns: 8x150, 9x150, 7x160 LW: 10x130, 9x140, 8x150
Skullcrushers: 10x110, 8x120, 5x125 I pushed myself hard the last couple sets and refused to be a little bitch. It worked. LW: 10x110, 8x120(2 forced reps), 7x120(2 forced reps)
DB Overhead Ext: 10x90, 6x100, I tried a third set with 95, but my triceps were fried. I did two reps with it. LW: 10x80, 8x90, 5x95
I tried some reverse grip one hand pushdowns, but my tri's were done. I could barely do 50 and did a set of 10 with 40 with my right arm, but only like 5 with my left. LW: 10x50, 10x50 (2 forced reps), 8x50(2 forced reps)
Standing Barbell Curls: 10x115, 9x135(2 forced reps), 8x135(2 forced reps) I was pretty happy with this LW: 10x115, 7x135(1 FR), 5x135(1 FR)
Incline DB Curls: 5x65, 4x65, 6x55 LW: 7x60's, 5x65's, 5x65's
Hammer Curls done with rope on cable: 10x100, 8x130, 8x130
DB Concentration Curl: 12x25, 10x30, 10x35 I did these different today. I did them bent over with my arm hanging down instead of sitting with my arm against my leg. LW: 10x30, 10x30(2 forced reps), 9x30(2 forced reps)
Standing Calf Raise: 20x50, 15x120(DS to 60 then BW), 10x140(DS to 60 then BW) The stack on this particular calf raise only goes to 150. It's a cybex. So, I'll be adding weight to it soon with the pin and a plate like I used to. (I wasn't training calves for a little while). LW: Same thing
I should mention my diet was pretty crappy this weekend. I ate a lot of pizza and some McDonald's. But I still had my shakes and other essentials. At least I got lots of calories.
10-09-2006, 06:39 PM
I weighed 199.0 this morning! That was before I pooped, though. I remember one time I weighed myself before and after I pooped and I lost two pounds. So, I must've been at least 197. Either way, I'm gaining weight. I was 193 when I started this log, but for a couple weeks before the log I was fluctuating between 193 and 195. So to reach 195 is not a real big deal, but anything over that is pretty amazing. And it's only been 10 days. Good stuff.
I still need to work on my diet some. I was counting calories and what not today. It was about 4000 calories and just over 200 grams of protein. I know some days it's more and some days it's less(not a lot more or less). I just need to work some more protein into my day. I can do that. In fact, I'm about to eat a bowl of cereal before I go to bed. Sometimes I have some cottage cheese. In future posts I may post everything I actually eat, but not tonight because I'm tired and want to go to bed.
Anyway, no workout today or tomorrow. I haven't felt much difference since I upped the dose of each to four. Until tomorrow....
Almost forgot, I've noticed a slight increase in acne the past week. Not much, just a little.

Seeing as how your diet is somewhat amiss would you say the weight gain is fat, muscle, water, or extra waste in the intestines? Or a combo perhaps but what if any do you think is lbm?

I'm not exactly sure, but I'm pretty certain it's not fat. A little bit could be water, but I don't think much of it is. Considering the fact that I'm getting stronger some of it's probably muscle.
Now, I have no idea how much is lean body mass. I didn't check my bodyfat before the log and I won't be checking it after the log, so that won't help figure it out. Personally, I'm less concerned with lbm and more concerned with strength and weight gain. However, my weight gain doesn't include much fat, no matter how big I'm going to get. I can damn near guarantee that my body fat percentage has gone up very little since I was 170 lbs. The only time I ever got my bodyfat tested was in 2003 when I was 186 lbs. It was between 8 and 8 1/2%. I can't remember the exact number. All I've gained since then is muscle and strength.
Also, I wouldn't really care for weight gain if I didn't get stronger at the same time. Which is why I'm glad I am getting stronger. Anyway, enough with all that.
10-10-2006, 06:02 PM
Quick update. I weighed 198.2 this morning.(after pooping) No changes in mood or anything. My dosage was:
7:00 1 Mass FX, 1 Hyperdrol
12:00 2 Mass FX, 2 Hyperdrol
6:30 1 Mass FX, 1 Hyperdrol
See, I told 'ya it was a quick update. Back day tomorrow. Deadlifts, oh yeahhhhh!
10-12-2006, 08:25 PM
Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I didn't workout yesterday. I was supposed to do back but I worked late. I weighed 195.6. There's not much to note about yesterday.
I worked late again today, but said there's no way I'm missing two workouts in a row. I got to the gym a little after 8 and it closes at nine. I did a quick back and chest workout. Better than nothing. Oh, I weighed a measly 195.2 this morning. Maybe I was just holding extra water those couple days. Anyway, here's my workout tonight:
Pullups: 10xBW, 10xBW I had my work clothes on with all my stuff in my pockets and my workboots(keys, knife, wallet, cell phone), so I had a little extra weight.
Deadlifts: 10x315, 4x385 I've never gone higher than 365, so this is pretty sweet. I should've tried a fifth rep.
Cybex Plate Loaded Row: 10x160, 10x180, 6x200
Incline DB Bench: 10x80, 10x80
Flat Barbell Bench: 12x95, 12x115 Delt is still not 100%
Cable Flyes Low to High: 10x60, 8x70 DS to 40 then 25
There you have it. Short and sweet. Not a great workout, but deadlifts kicked ass, I'm really happy about that. 405 is callin' my name. I'm still feeling the same as far as the Mass FX/HD is concerned. On the way to the gym I just felt like destroying things. I couldn't wait to do deadlifts. I said to myself that I would try 385 instead of 375. I'm definitely feeling strong. Alright, I gotta go to sleep.
10-13-2006, 07:42 PM
No workout today.
Dosing: 1 FX/HD 9:00, 2 FX/HD 2:00, 1 FX/HD 8:00(I had planned on 7, oh well)
Quads and delts tomorrow. I'm gonna squat 315 like it aint sheet.
My ipod broke last week. That sucks. I've been listening to the suck ass music they play at the gym. I need my heavy metal.

Day 15, Yesterday
Yesterday was a pretty good quad and delt workout. The FX and HD still has me feeling good. I get really psyched up when I go to the gym. I felt like I could squat a car or something.
Squats: 10x225, 8x315, 6x315 I was gonna do a couple more reps on this last set, but something didn't feel quite right, so I decided to listen to my body. At least I did two more reps than last week with the first set of 315. Also, I think next week I'm gonna do a set of probably 295 before I go to the 315.
One Leg Smith Machine Squats: 10x195, 10x225
Leg Ext: 12x100, 10x140, 8x160
I wish my frickin' delt injury would hurry up and be completely healed. I still didn't do too bad on shoulder presses, though.
Standing Barbell Press: 12x65, 10x115, 9x125
Behind the Back Barbell Shrugs: 12x225, 8x295, 8x295 DS to 225 then 135. I did 20 more pounds than last week.
Side Raises: 12x20, 10x25
Front Raises: Still not doing them.
Rear Raises: 10x50, 10x55 This went up 5 lbs
I also did my usual rotator cuff work and I did a little bit of ab work. I was pleased with the workout. I'm about to go do bi's, tri's and hamstrings in a little bit. I'll post that workout later.
10-15-2006, 10:08 AM
Squatting a car huh? Now that's strength!!! :D
10-15-2006, 06:42 PM
I did bi's and tri's today. I was gonna do hamstrings too but ended up not doing them. My mood is still the same that it's been for a while now. I would like to note that my triceps endurance seems to suck, today in particular. After doing Skullcrushers, my second exercise, my tri's were pretty much done.
Rope Pushdowns: 8x160, 7x160, 8x160 This increased from last week.
Skullcrushers: 10x120, 7x130(1 FR), 7x130(2 FR) This increased.
Overhead DB Ext: 8x85, 3x95, 4x85
Standing Barbell Curls: 8x135, 7x145(1 FR), 7x145(2 FR) I was very happy with this. This increased.
Incline DB Curls: 6x65, 4x65, 4x65 I should've went lighter on the last set and did more reps.
DB Hammer Curls: 7x60, 8x60, 8x60
I also did a few sets of calf raises, but nothing special. Not a real good calf workout. Overall, half the exercises increased in weight, so it was a pretty good workout.
10-17-2006, 05:53 PM
Day 17, Yesterday
No noticeable change in mood.
No noticeable change in anything really.
Day 18, Today
Weight: 199.4 The same as yesterday. Not bad.
Everything is pretty much the same. No workout today, either. Back day tomorrow.
Dosing today was: 1 of each at 8:00, 2 of each at 1:00, 1 of each at 6:45.
10-19-2006, 07:09 PM
Day 19, Yesterday
So, I missed my back workout yesterday for reasons I do not wish to discuss. Two weeks in a row. I'm a little upset. But it's not the end of the world, I guess.
Day 20, Today
Dosing: 1 of each at 7:00, 1 of each at 12:45, 2 of each at 5:30
I was gonna do back today and chest tomorrow, but I really wanted to do chest today, so that's what I did. I will do back tomorrow, which alters my workout schedule a tad. Now I'll be working out Thur, Fri, Sun, and Mon. Anyway, it was an awesome chest workout. I still can't lift sh** on flat barbell bench 'cause of my delt, but everything else was good. Without further ado:
Incline DB Bench: 10x85, 8x95, 7x95 Yeah buddy. My delt feels good enough to do this. I'm just about back where I should be with this. It felt awesome.
Flat Barbell Bench: 12x95, 12x135, 12x135 Damn delt injury. I HATE IT!!!! :mad: :(
Incline DB Flyes: 12x40, 10x50, 10x60
DB Pullover: 10x50, 10x60
Cable Flyes low to high: 10x60, 8x70, 8x70
I was very happy with this workout. I felt especially good in the gym today. I had a good focus. Maybe because I was pissed and because there were little guys there acting big, who knows. Or maybe it's the FX/HD baby. Or perhaps a combination. Regardless, I like this stack. Thanks again guys.
Oh, I should mention I finished my HorsePower a few days ago. I know it alters my diet a little, but I really didn't want to buy more. I've been taking it a long time. Sorry. Time for Ragnar to spend a couple months off creatine. See ya' tomorrow fella's.
10-20-2006, 07:13 PM
Day 21, Three weeks baby
Weight this morning: 197.4
Dosing: 1 of each at 7:00am, 1 of each at 12:30pm, 2 of each at 4:30pm
Workout began 5:20pm
Today I did back, calves and a little bit of hamstrings. I must've had a brain fart yesterday because I should've done hams with chest. Let me say a few words to describe my back workout:
OH HELL YEAH!!! It was a good one. I felt unstoppable as usual with my trusty FX/HD.
Pull-ups: 10xBW, 10x20, 8x40, 10xBW || LW: 10xBW, 10xBW With all my work clothes, boots and stuff in my pockets. But I definitely went heavier today than I've gone in a while.
Deadlifts: 10x315, 5x385, 3x395 Oh yeah, I just keep goin' up. Look out 405, I'm comin' to gitcha'. LW: 10x315, 4x385
Bent Over Row(Palms out, straight bar): 10x205, 8x225, 8x225 || I didn't do these last week. The week before that using the curl bar was: 10x200, 7x220, 8x220
Reverse Close Grip Pulldowns: 10x140, 8x160, 11x160 (3 FR) || Two weeks ago: 10x100, 8x120, 7x120
Cybex Plate Loaded Row: 3x6x180 || LW: 10x160, 10x180, 6x200 This was also my third exercise last week, not my fifth, so it's not a real surprise that I didn't lift as much.
Standing Calf Raise (Cybex): 50x20, 130x15, 150x10, 150x10 The last three sets were drop sets to 60 then BW, doing max reps each time. That's how I always train calves. Just about every set is a drop set. It's the only way to make these pathetic things grow. And donkey's. They respond to those.
One Leg Lying Leg Curl: 10x50, 60x8 DS to 30
An excellent workout in my opinion. I was thinking about how I only have one week left of this log. That is completely unacceptable, I want more, send me more, please......OK, I'm good now, sorry about that. Anyway, day off tomorrow, Quads and Delts on Sunday. FYI, I'll be purchasing at least Mass FX (to stack with something) if I don't purchase Mass FX and Hyperdrol at some point in the future. You did it guys. You made me want to buy it. Now when you send me that new stuff in 7 weeks to test, I hope I can say the same when that log is almost done(I bet I will). :D See ya'.
10-22-2006, 09:42 AM
Day 22, Yesterday
Dosing: 1 of each at 10:00am, 2 of each at 6:00pm, 1 of each at 9:00pm. Yeah, my dosing was a little screwy yesterday.
I didn't do much yesterday.
Day 23, Today
Weight: 199.2 I just love watching my weight fluctuate.........not really.
Dosing: 2 of each at 8:40am. That's all I've had so far. I'm about to eat and take one more of each, then I'll probably take 1 of each at around 5pm.
Workout began at 9:40am. I did Quads and Delts.
Squats: 12x225, 10x315, 6x335 This is awesome. I love it. LW: 10x225, 8x315, 6x315
One Leg Smith Machine Squats: 10x215, 8x245, 6x255 Goin' up. LW: 10x195, 10x225
Leg Ext: 12x140, 10x160 DS to 80, 40, 20 That was a nice burn. LW: 12x100, 10x140, 8x160
Standing Barbell Press: 10x115, 10x115 Front delt still hurts. LW: 12x65, 10x115, 9x125
Behind the back Barbell Shrugs: 12x225, 6x315, 6x315 DS to 225, 135 || LW: 12x225, 8x295, 8x295 DS to 225, 135
DB Side Raise (One arm at a time): 12x20, 10x30, 10x30 || LW: 12x20, 10x25
DB Front Raise: Still hurts too much.
DB Rear Raise: 10x50, 8x55 I did these a little different today. I did them standing and bent over and put my forehead against a bench. Usually I sit down and bend over. || LW: 10x50, 10x55
I also did rotator cuff work. Good workout today. I'm lovin' those squats. I still can't believe I'm doing that much. It's a lot for me. I'm a beast!
10-24-2006, 06:01 PM
Day 24, Yesterday
I did bi's and tri's yesterday. It was a decent workout. I was pretty tired. I had been weedwacking for about four hours before I went to the gym and I think my bi's were a little tired as a result. That may be why I didn't lift as much with bi's as I did last week.
I forgot to weigh myself yesterday because I got up late.
Dosing: 1 of each at 7:30, 1 of each at 12:30, 2 of each at 5:30
Rope Pushdowns: 8x170, 7x170, 8x170 || LW:8x160, 7x160, 8x160 I'm gonna have to start doing these on the lat pulldown machine. The stack on the cable I usually use goes to 170.
Skullcrushers (When I did these yesterday, I immediately close grip benched the weight when I finished): 7x130, 5x130, 8x130 (3 FR) || LW: 10x120, 7x130(1 FR), 7x130(2 FR)
Overhead DB Ext: 8x85, 12x70 My tri's were finished at this point || LW: 8x85, 3x95, 4x85
Standing Barbell Curls: 8x135, 6x135, 8x115 Weak || LW: 8x135, 7x145(1 FR), 7x145(2 FR)
Incline DB Curl (Simultaneous): 5x60, 6x55, 5x55 Again, weak || LW:6x65, 4x65, 4x65
Hammer Curls: 6x55, 7x55 || LW: 7x60, 8x60, 8x60
So yeah, I was tired before I worked out, and by the time I got done I was really frickin' tired. It was a pretty good tricep workout, but not a very good bicep workout. Oh well. It happens.
One thing I wanted to mention about the posts of my workouts. I'm not sure if it's a given, but I post all the exercises in the exact order that I do them. I don't know if everyone does this. I'm sure there's people that don't, but I do.
Day 25, Today
No workout today. Or tomorrow. Time for bed.
10-28-2006, 06:51 AM
Day 27, Two days ago
Man, I just realized how long it's been since I posted. Anyway, I had a pretty sweet chest workout two days ago. I weighed 199.6 two days ago. Yesterday I weighed 198.2. Today I weighed 198.6.
Incline DB Bench: 10x85, 9x100, 5x105(1 FR) Now, when I tried 105, I couldn't get the first one up myself, and struggled for like 6 seconds trying to get it up before they came back down. So I had someone spot me and help me with the first one, but I think I was pretty weak from struggling with it. But, this is still a lot better than last week. LW: 10x85, 8x95, 7x95
Flat BB Bench: 12x135, 12x155, 10x175 My delt's gettin' better. Woo hoo. LW: 12x95, 12x135, 12x135
Flat DB Flyes: 10x40, 10x45, 10x45 I haven't done these in a while. I've been doing incline DB flyes. This strained my delt a little.
DB Pullover: 10x45, 10x55, 10x60 || LW: 10x50, 10x60
Cable Flyes low to high: 8x60, 8x60 || LW: 10x60, 8x70, 8x70
My chest is still sore. I missed my back workout last night, but I'm gonna be going to do it soon this morning. Then I'm going to a local bodybuilding comp. (Natural)
I'll post my back workout later. I'm not doing deadlifts because my lower back has been hurting the last couple days. It sucks.
10-29-2006, 06:49 PM
Day 29, Yesterday
Yesterday was a very quick back workout. I had very little time before I had to meet my buddy so we could go to the bb show. I weighed 198.4. The workout was as follows:
[center]Pull-ups: 10xBW, 10x40, 8x40 || LW: 10xBW, 10x20, 8x40, 10xBW
Bent Over Rows: 10x205, 10x225, 10x225 || LW: 10x205, 8x225, 8x225
Reverse Grip Close Grip Pulldowns: 10x140, 8x160, 8x160 || LW: 10x140, 8x160, 11x160(3 FR)
Cybex Plate Loaded Row: 7x190, 6x190 || LW: 3x6x180[/b]
10-29-2006, 06:52 PM
Day 30, The Last Day:(
Today I did Quads and Delts.
Squats: 10x315, 6x345, 5x350 || LW: 10x315, 6x335
One Legged Smith Machine Squats: 10x215, 10x235 || LW: 10x215, 8x245, 6x255
Leg Extensions: 10x160, 8x170, 7x180 || LW: 12x140, 10x160 DS to 80, 40, 20
Delts I decided to do Seated DB presses like I used to mainly because some chick was hoggin' the rack and the smith machine. I'm probably gonna stick with these for a while, though. My delt feels a little better when I do 'em.
Seated DB Press: 12x50, 10x60, 9x70 I used to do 90's or 95's.
DB Shrugs(I was gonna do behing the back BB like I've been doing, but that chick was still hoggin' the racks, and people were using benches. I didn't feel like trying to deadlift it behind my back, so I used DB's: 10x100, 10x110, 10x110 DS to 55 then 25
DB Side Raise (One Arm): 12x20, 10x30, 10x30 || LW: 12x20, 10x30, 10x30
DB Rear Raise: 12x40, 10x50, 10x50 || LW: 10x50, 8x55
I also did rotator cuff work and abductor and adductor work. I will post a final review and before/after pics and stats soon.
10-29-2006, 07:39 PM
Before and after stats
Weight: 193....198 Plus 5 lbs. I haven't weighed less than 198 the last 8 days.
Bicep: 16 5/8''....16 3/4" Plus 1/8''
Chest: 43 1/2"....43 3/4" Plus 1/4"
Forearms: 14 1/4"....14 1/4" Unchanged. I better work on that more.
Quads: 23 1/4"....24" Plus 3/4"
Calves: 15"....15 3/16" Plus 3/16" Holy sh**! They grew!
So, I seem to have gotten a little bigger according to most of the measurements and I've gained five pounds. Sweet. I know I've gotten stronger. A few before and after lifts:
Squats went from 315 for 4 reps to 350 for 5 reps.
Standing Barbell Curls went from 135 for 5 to 145 for 6
Deadlifts went from 335 for 8 to 395 for 3
My leg strength has gone up the most, judging by squats. My quad measurement also increased the most. Makes sense I guess.
10-29-2006, 07:50 PM
Before and after pics.
10-29-2006, 07:51 PM
10-29-2006, 08:04 PM
Overall, I'd say the Mass FX/Hyperdrol stack is a good stack. It gave me more drive to get in the gym and more focus while I was there. My strength went up considerably and I gained five pounds. Not bad at all for a 30 day cycle. I would be willing to purchase this stack sometime in the future, or perhaps purchase Mass FX and something else to stack it with.
I wish I could do 30 more days to see how much more my strength and weight would increase. But alas, I can not. I recommend this stack. I love the way I've been feeling while using it. Well done AX.
Time to start my X Factor and see what that can do.
10-30-2006, 07:09 AM
Nice gains. Good log and review. Will you be logging X-Factor also?
10-30-2006, 05:03 PM
Nice gains. Good log and review. Will you be logging X-Factor also?
Thanks. And yes, I will be:
10-31-2006, 11:09 AM
Great job!! Definately see the improvements.
04-20-2013, 04:56 AM
Hi everyone,I am considering of getting the Test-boost of Muscletech-AlphaTest . I am adraid of loosing my hair because of the Cortizol (the ingridient,which cause hair-lose) in this stimulator . What is your opinion about that product ? Has anybody tried it ?
