Dr.Abs' Gaspari Nutrition Stack
 
Hey guys, I had a chance to log some products from Gaspari nutrition a few months ago & figured I'd copy my log here so you can check it out.

Dr.Abs 12-29-2011 10:30 PM

First of all, I'd like to really thank BK for chosing me as one of the loggers for this stack : SizeOn, Super Pump Max, Viridex XT & Spirodex.

As I had mentioned before, I've had no previous experience with any Gaspari product before, and I will be very honest in giving my opinion regarding any or all of the products being logged.

This will be a 4 week log using the above stack & what I'm hoping it'll help me do is get back in the kind of shape I was in before taking time off. I'm expecting some fat loss as well as some size & strength gains.


Stats:

Height: 5'10

Weight: 205 lbs

BF%: 18%

Training experience: on & off for about 9 years.

I've been out of the gym for about 3 months ( no injuries, just moving & getting settled etc...), now just got back to working out & want to get back to where I used to be ASAP & make some more gains FAST !



Diet:

I'll be doing a recomp, more on the side of a cut, so i'll probably be doing IF.

I normally eat clean & healthy, but don't count calories.



Training Split:

- Chest + Tri's
- Back + Bi's
- off
- Legs + Abs
- Shoulders
- Cardio + Abs
- off

I also do 15-20 mins of low to moderate intensity cardio before & after my lifting sessions ; HIIT is for a cardio-only day

With my weight training I generally stick to the basics as long as they're doing the trick before switching things up & trying new things.

I usually try to train heavy & follow progressive overload, & add in drop sets, supersets, forced reps, etc. as needed.

I try & listen to my body when it comes to training. So if according to my split, I have shoulders but I feel like they could use an extra day off or feel like training legs instead, I just do it .

With that said, I've taken my 1st serving of Viridex XT this morning along with the suggested assessment dose of 1 Spirodex, both on an empty stomach.

I'm guessing the Viridex will take a few days to show any effects, but as far as the Spirodex goes, I can say that within 20-30 mins Istarted feeling alert, somewhat energized & noticeably warmer.

I like the fact that I didn't experience a strong stimulant effect; if this remains the case for the next couple of days, I will go up to the recommended 2 Spirodex per day.

Later today, I will be taking a serving of Super Pump before heading to the gym & will be sipping on a serving of SizeOn.

First workout with SP Max was delts & traps day.

I also took my second serving of Viridex XT about 45 mins before working out.

Took 1 scoop of SP Max, which is again the recommended assessment serving size. After today, I can tell that at a little over 200 pounds of body weight, I need to up the serving to 1.5 scoops.

Felt focused & had nice energy throughout my workout.

Here's a look at today's workout:

DB Shoulder Press

2 sets w/ 30's x 16 reps
2 sets w/ 40's x 12
2 sets w/ 50's x 10

Behind-the-neck press (full range of motion here)

2 - 95 lbs x 16
2 - 115 lbs x 12
2 - 145 lbs x 10

Side Lateral Raises

3 - 20's x 16
3 - 25's x 16
1 - 30's x 10

Reverse Pec Dec/ Rear Delt

4 - 50 lbs x 12

Up Right Rows ( using low pulley cable)

2 - 35 lbs x 16
2 - 45 lbs x 12
2 - 50 lbs x 10

Shrug Machine

3 - 90 lbs (on each side) x 12
2 - 135 lbs x 10


As you guys can see here, this workout was more on the side of higher reps/volume.

The reason for this is that this is what it takes for me to feel a good pump in my delts.

I can train them heavy & feel a good stretch & soreness the next day or two, but when it comes to achieving a good pump, they need higher volume.

Now add in the SP Max pre-workout, and I have a nice pump going during my workout.

& while SP Max tasted okay, the Size On orange flavor was absolutely delicious !

I didn't feel depleted after my workout at all & I'm hoping it'll also help with any DOMS.

Curious what you thought of Max. I liked SuperPump but have yet to try Superpump Max.

Yesterday was a rest day; took 1 serving of viridex in the morning along with with 1 spirodex, & then the 2nd servingof viridex later in the evening.

Since starting the spirodex, I've noticed i'm getting hungry about 2-3 hours later than when i normally do.

- Good workout, felt energized through out. In terms of strength, handling the weights was not too hard, so I will definitely be going heavier next time. Not too sore today either, thanks to Size On.

A quick little update, was feeling a little depressed a few days ago, found out a lot of users experience this kind of thing with products containing geranamine

on a +ve note, my cardio session have been pretty good & I've noticed I'm looking a bit leaner, got a couple of comments from friends...

in regards to the viridex, i can say that i do feel my libido has gotten a nice boost, as well as feeling refreshed/recovered even with missing an hour or two of extra sleep at night.
