Day 5 & 6 of Agmatine XT
Day 5 was a rest day, so not a whole lot to say. My diet does not change on rest days, fwiw.
I dosed 500mg AXT (we’ll start calling it that for short) in the morning with breakfast, 500mg AXT about 2 hours post-lunch. Throughout the day I felt great and tight as well. No complaints!
Day 6 was yesterday and man it was good.
Small change to the stack for preworkout yesterday…
100g banana, 500mg AXT, full dose (2 scoops) of Olympus Labs Re1gn (the proper formulated one). This equals out to 1500mg of agmatine sulfate.
BB Overhead Press 3x6
Seated Cable Flies 3x11
Pendlay Rows 3x9
Face Pulls 3x13
Tricep pressdowns 3x11
I finally figured out how to get proper before/after. I usually have to pee a fountain by the time I get into the gym and leave, so in-stall before and afters are perfect lol.
Again my baby veins aren’t really telling the full story here. My chest was ready to explode after the cable flies, shoulders felt like boulders after the first set of OHP, and my back felt amazing after pendlay’s and face pulls. Triceps were near numb… I’m loving agmatine. Who knew that one supplement had so many benefits? This was, of course, about +500mg compared to my usual dose, and I’d say I still felt a slight variance between my typical 1000mg dose compared to the 1500mg dose. Very cool!
Now debating if I want these kind of pumps for lower body today. Front squats and romanian deadlifts are on schedule for today so not sure if my legs are ready for crazy pumps like yesterday. Decisions, decisions.
Oh, also to note… “Bulking season” started 12/4. I started at 185 on the dot and weighed in at 187.6 this morning. I started using creatine again (I only stopped because I had to take 2 months off legit lifting due to an arm injury), eating a 300 calorie surplus (added carbs and a bit more proton), and also taking Performax MassMax to hopefully aid in keeping the gains proper. With that being said, I feel like 2.6lbs from 12/4-12/15 is pretty decent. I’ll also be keeping waist measurements to ensure fat gain is kept at a minimum.
I’m feeling tighter and getting stronger, so fingers crossed i’m doing this right. It’s taken a LOT of time and effort both mentally and physically to get myself to where I am today, both diet and training-wise - most of us know that feeling I’m sure. I have confidence in the macros I’ve figured out.
I won’t clutter this log with my diet/training, but just wanted to throw this out there for my own sake.
