Default Applied Nutriceuticals HGHup/Free Test LOG

A group of my friends at the gym recently put on a noticeable amount of muscle. I had to know how. The said they had stacked HGHup and Free Test by Applied Nutriceuticals. Although each had different results, they each had put on noticeable muscle. That's all I needed to hear. So I went online and looked it up; reviews seemed good and people had stated that they had some good gains. I put in the order. I decided to also throw in Lit Up; AP's pre-workout, I thought lets just go nuts with a trifecta AP stack So here it goes, bring on the muscle!

Let's start out with a little background information about myself before I dive into the log:
I am 31 years old, 5' 8" and presently 196.8 lbs and 14.8% BF(a bit hefty after the "holiday bulking season" I'll get some accurate before measurements to you asap.

I entered the US Air Force in 2001 where I caught the bodybuilding bug. I met a friend and we both decided to hit the gym on base and the lifting partnership began. We ran into some serious lifters and natural pro's in VA where I was stationed at Langley AFB. Right away they taught us the proper way to train and eat thus keeping us away from creating bad habits. The first day I picked up a weight I was 145lbs, I remember this because I had just gotten my military ID card (the weight was on the back). In the first 6 months of training I gained 40 lbs and was addicted! Of course I hit a plateau, it was then I discovered supplementation like protein and creatine which helped me to keep gaining. Four years later my enlistment ended and I moved back home at 212 lbs. Since then, I've been as high as 227 and as low as a ripped 189.


My diet is tough; I work a 12 hour rotating schedule and it's not always the easiest to eat what I want when i want. I cook up all my food a week in advance on a random day I have off and pack it in tupperware, I don't always have a place to heat it up so sometimes I have to eat it cold and I also can't always eat it on time. I attempt to eat every 3 hours. I start work at 7am so on workdays I work out at 5am, off days whenever I wake up. My diet looks something like this:

Wake up: 3 capsules of HGHup

1/2 cup cream of rice w/ tbsp honey
Cup of green tea
supps: 2 capsules Free Test, CLA, 30g protein shake (Dymatize Elite whey as of right now), primaforce BCAA"s, AP's Lit Up, 5g creatine monohydrate.

Post workout:
1 scoop isopure (Dymatize), 1 scoop casein (Optimum), BCAA's (PrimaForce), Waxy Maize (PrimaForce-Carb Slam), Creatine monohydrate 5g.

All meals are 3 hours apart:
MEAL 1
6 oz grilled Chicken breast
1/2 cup qunioa
1/2 broccoli
1 tbsp Flax oil

MEAL 2
2 slices of Ezekiel Bread
1 can tuna w/ greens
serving of fruit

MEAL 3
6 oz Chicken breast
1 medium sweet potato
1/2 cup broccoli
tbsp Flax oil

MEAL 4
6 oz Chicken breast
1/2 cup broccoli

MEAL 5
6 oz steak or buffalo burger
greens salad w/ Flax oil

Pre Bed shake:
2 capsules of HGHup, 2 capsules of Free Test, 1/2 scoop whey, 1 scoop casein, BCAA's

Default Before measurements/First impression

Shoulders- 53 1/2"
Chest- 47"
Arms- R: 18 3/4", L:19"
Forearms R: 16", L:15 1/4" (eek better work that left one)
Waist: 35" (stupid holiday cookies)
Thigh: R: 27 1/2", L: 27"
Calves R: 17", L: 17"

*All measurements were taken cold and unflexed (except arm, and forearm; those were taken cold but flexed.)

After 2 training days:
Lit up: I personally liked the taste, i was pleasantly surprised. Some could find the taste a big strong. Mixed well, no complaints there. Energy was great! No big, sick feeling upswings and no crashes; just good energy throughout..felt more charged than I have in a while. Pump was good, held throughout, didn't blow my mind but definitely above average. I felt stronger but I'm guessing mostly due to the energy it gave me. Arms tomorrow-for me that's always the best test of a PWO's pump ability.
Taste: 8
Pump: 7
Energy: 9
Mixability: 7
Value so far: 9
We'll see how I feel after a week or so though..

Free Test/HGHup:
I liked the fact that it didn't have a terrible taste like a lot of supplement pills do. I hate that strong pill taste so many seem to have. I think it's much too early for any real gains or effects to be felt but I have slept better and longer the past few nights than I have in some time.

Feeling good and charged up!

Default Update

I kept very close to the previous workout I posted for my 1st three days so no need to go into detail, I'll let you know if I switch things up. I've been feeling very strong and my endurance has been up, even my workout partner yesterday was like geese, what are you taking? LOL . Although it's early I don't feel any soreness (I'm usually sore in my chest and traps), I'm surprised that this early I my recovery and soreness would be decreased..I'm liking it! Arms was yesterday; awesome pump, 9/10..maybe higher, fantastic workout! I'm loving training on the AN stack! Side note: sleep has still been better than it has in months!

I'm going to try to get some before pictures out to you guys tonight.

Default Before pics

Well here's a few before pics. I've gotta admit I'm a little embarrassed to post these as I'm way off my "typical" look. I really embraced the holiday's. I lost muscle and put on some fat. Well here's the pics either way.

Default Update

As of this morning I was 196 with a 1/2" drop in my waist measurement (34 1/2"). Friday was a test as it was leg day; workout was great, I felt like I had more energy, strength and endurance. Best of all though my soreness as of today is about 75% less than it normally would be (I'm prone to extremely sore legs the next day after leg day.) Also sleep has continued to be above average.

Just to keep a strength log I'll post my my basic compound movements for that weeks training per body part (all slow and methodical reps with a full range of motion:
Chest: :
Flat Bench: 275lbs: 12, 315: 5
Shoulders:
Military press: 275lbs: 5
Arms:
Barbell curls: 135lbs: 5
Back:
Barbell rows: 315lbs: 8
Dumbbell rows: 150lbs: 6
Legs:
Squats: 315lbs: 12 (prone to lower back issues so I don't kill myself here)

Overall I'm loving this stack!! No negatives and so far feeling great!

Default 16 weeks is on!

Through some advice I've decided to change the dose to a full serving of Free Test in the morning (4 pills) and the full serving of HGHup before bed (5 pills). No other changes.

I've also decided to run the stack a bit longer too: 16 weeks on HGHup, 12 weeks on Free Test, 4 weeks on Drive, then off all for 4 weeks. Should be more conducive to maximizing gains.

On a separate note I had a great isolation type bicep workout today (I also trained tri's but my bicep workout is really what was tweaked).

Standing low cable single arm curls from behind- 3 sets 12 reps
(stand in front of a set of cables set at the lowest setting and curl one arm at a time keeping your upper arm at an angle away from you during the full exercise)
Ladder curls- 3 sets 12 reps
(hang from smith machine with hands approx shoulder width apart and curl up bringing the bar to your chest)
Spider curls- 3 sets 12 reps
(lay face down on an incline bench, grasp a dumbbell in either hand and let them hang. Curl up with both hands.)
Seated cable behind the neck curls- 3 sets 12 reps
(sit facing backwards on a lat pull down machine. grab a straight bar directly over your head and curl starting with your arms straight bringing the bar behind your head.)

Tri's were just:
Close grip bench, skull crushers, single arm reverse grip push downs and a single set of cable kick backs.
