10 Day Update

Help building lean muscle

**** I am not eating in a surplus, nor will I be jacking up my calories weekly to “Feed the Supplement”. If that was the case nobody would ever know how well a “Supplement” works when you consistently skew nutrition. My numbers for training are being matched, and if I can try beat the log book I will, but it will be hard since I have cut off some butter in the last few months between my 8 week BMP Log, and now running AE.**

  • Improve Strength

**** See Above**

  • Improve endurance

No chnges to note so early into the run. Endurance, and recovery have been pretty steady so far

  • Aid weight loss & Body Composition

Possibly a bit leaner then set number 1 of pictures, but again too early to tell. There is a long way to go in this log.

Weight 169.6

  • Improve Pumps & Fullness (S7 Inclusion)

I have not noticed much change. I usually do 1 Scoop VasoBlitz/Fullblitz for my pre-workout stack, but i am testing VasoForce XT for 5 days in a variable of different options

  • Improved Nutrient Uptake (Astragin)

Digestion has been good, but then again I don’t eat too much in the first place, and very meticulous on the food sources I do consume on a day to day basis. I tend to keep food sources simple and low in FODMAP to avoid any bloating, GI Distress

Still, I have not picked up much on the product. Weight is down another .2 so far which is trucking along linear which is rare for me. usually I stall for weeks and drop in chunks. I have been using VasoForce XT for my workouts (5 samples), so I will drop that review this weekend compared to my normal FullBlitz/VasoBlitz combo.

I have been waking up an hour earlier since starting a new job to train (4:30 AM), but that has not impacted me one bit in the weight room, getting in my meals, or day to day recovery. I still manage to get 6-7 hours of sleep a night which keeps me trucking along just fine.

17 Day Update

Help building lean muscle
**** I am not eating in a surplus, nor will I be jacking up my calories weekly to “Feed the Supplement”. If that was the case nobody would ever know how well a “Supplement” works when you consistently skew nutrition. Training has been very consistent from the 10-day update to the 17 day update. So far holding steady with my weights as form and time under tension are a higher priority.**

  • Improve Strength
    **** See Above**

  • Improve endurance
    Endurance and recovery have been pretty steady, I have had nothing to note in regards to this on a day to day basis.

  • Aid weight loss & Body Composition
    A small drop from last week, looking leaner in the mirror
    Weight 169.4 (-.2)

  • Improve Pumps & Fullness (S7 Inclusion)
    Finished up testing out VasoForce XT for 5 workout sessions. Posted my review in the Vasoforce log, will move back to VasoBlitz + Fullblitz pre-workout combo.

  • Improved Nutrient Uptake (Astragin)
    Digestion has been good, but then again I don’t eat too much in the first place, and very meticulous on the food sources I do consume on a day to day basis. My diet is pretty much laid out and similar M-F with minimal changes just due to work schedule. I tend to keep food sources simple and low in FODMAP to avoid any bloating, GI Distress.

Weekend update coming soon, will have to grab a new set of pics to see how the mirror is looking.

Help building lean muscle

**** I am not eating in a surplus, nor will I be jacking up my calories weekly to “Feed the Supplement”. If that was the case nobody would ever know how well a “Supplement” works when you consistently skew nutrition. Training has been very consistent as weights have not dropped and everything is remaining steady & Matching the logbook while losing weight.**

  • Aid weight loss & Body Composition

Weight 169.2 (-.2)

  • Improve Sleep

Some users have commented on this, I am not seeing any changes. I am up at 3:30-4:30 most mornings except weekends when I am off from my new job. I actually feel better when I wakeup at 3:30-4:30 compared to a little later on the weekend. Perhaps that is my body and its generic sleeping pattern.

  • Improve Pumps & Fullness (S7 Inclusion)

Pre-Workout Combo is 1 Scoop VasoBlitz & 1 Scoop FullBlitz. Pumps have remainded the same. I notice if I do high rep warm-up sets my skin and muscles have a larger hardness. Most of my rep ranges are in the 5-20 range with a main focus around 8-12 for most of John’s Training Programs (Mountain Dog).

4 Rice Cakes + 1 Scoop Whey

Lunch (Around Noon) 2 Turkey Burgers + Asparagus —> 3 AE Caps

Meal 5 (8ish): Cream of Rice, Jasmine Rice, or Rice Cakes + Whey

I am very basic with how I eat the majority of the week, but I will throw in some baked goods that I bake and make throughout the week, or if I feel like cooking a sandwich, stirfry etc I will toss it into my last meal.

Out of town this weekend working overtime for my new job (Erie Insurance), and handling new agents in Hermitage PA

Strength:

Hit 315x10 on Squat (BW which is -.4 this week)

I was able to maintain the logbook, and improve my mind-muscle connection on back movements. This is the hardest body part for me to engage because I forearm a lot of my movements. I have been trying to lock my body in, and minimize carry over to stimulate the muscle properly.

Weight:

168.8 (-.4) This week which is on a continual trend with no change in nutrition. I have really found my sweet spot over the last few months with nutrition as everything is a linear trend.

Body Recomp:

This is the best takeaway so far since running the product. I have got a lot more comments in the gym and when training on my face looking leaner, quads looking leaner, and upper body looking tighter. I can also tell as my belt notch is down, waist is tighter, and pants are looser. Every week I can see small changes in my physique, and I will have to get some pictures next time I am in town to see how the mirror is treating me as clothes are looser.

Mood/Sleep/Energy:

I have found no changes in my sleep schedule.

M-F I am up around 3:30 AM, weekends I try to sleep in around 4:30-5 AM depending on my new work schedule, or what I have going on.

Energy and Mood are very consistent. I limit my stim intake and try to get at least 4-6 hours of sleep a night which is typical for me. This is my sweet spot for the most part.

Libido:

I have found no change this entire log thus far, but it may change the deeper I get.

Overall 0 complains. If I keep getting tighter and I can maintain my strength the longer I stay in a slight deficit I am a very happy camper.

As I get deeper into AE I can tell the recomp is the best portion of the product.

I have been right around maintenance or a slight deficit for quite some time, so seeing strength gains or muscle gains is very hard to come across.

I did match the logbook the last few weeks which is great, and to get leaner in the process is a huge plus

I am not seeing anything as far as an increase in libido, or recovery goes, but that could be to my consistent nutrition and not being in a surplus or consistently adding calories on a week to week basis, which others may have seen or done in their experience.

If I can continue to tighten up these next few weeks I will be happy. I noticed my belt notch has dropped yet again, so that is yet another clear sign I am getting leaner. Back is looking a bit wider too, so I won’t complain.

Weight: 168.6 (-.2)
