I’ve decided to post up a Vector log since I’m finally getting some spare time again nowadays to be able to post daily/weekly here on the forum. I have 3 tubs/months worth of Vector to go through, so I’m pretty excited to see how this goes!
25yr old, 6’0", lifetime natty (just sayin’), 201lbs currently.
Closely monitored caloric surplus with a bigger meal or two on the weekends. I typically eat progressively while my program gets tougher as I’m usually running some type of periodization/progressive overload type program.
Macros at the start of Vector: 3500 calories with 250-260g protein, 350-400g carbs, 100-115g fat. I’m still toying with the carb/fat levels, but that’s generally my day.
Ben Pollack’s 10 Week Periodization, Intermediate Program - “Unfu*k Your Program”
Rough estimates for some 1RM’s (I say rough because some days are better than others)…
Squat - 245-255 (I hit a deep 295 before but haven’t found confidence to get that heavy again)
Bench - 185 (can probably do 190-195)
Deadlift - 385 (similar to squat, I have hit 405 one time, but haven’t tried again)
Overhead Press - 135
Front Squat - 225
My goal with Vector is to hopefully gain some extra strength that simply packing in food won’t provide. I’m hoping it keeps my weight gain as lean as possible as well. I started “bulking season” on 12/4/17 at 185, so I’m up 16lbs so far with the help of another natural anabolic (MassMax) and a 1.5 bottle run of X-Gels alongside my caloric surplus.
I’ll be posting my thoughts on any interactions with Vector in this log. I may post daily, weekly, who knows. I’d just like to get this up. With that said - I’ll be posting my 9 days in thoughts in the next post.
