I'm Excited to finally get my XF cycle going. Figured I would track my results on here for my benefit as well as share my results with all you. I plan on stacking the XF with Green bulge as well as my regular supplements which i have labeled below. I'll post tonight or early tomorrow morning on the first workout. Gonna give the MAX-OT training method a shot for the next 12 weeks as i have heard great things about it for natural lifters.

Weight: 174

BF %: 10

Current Training Schedule:Lifting 5 days on 2 days off

Cardio Schedule: 3 times a week

Current supplements:
Multi-vitamin, Dissected Liver, Vitamin C, BCAA's, Glutamine, ZMA and possibly some Arginine

Current Diet:

I will consume 6 + meals a day (not including pre-post workout shakes). Cycling carbs 50g for 3 days, 150g for 2 days, followed by 350g for 2 days. repeat

ya legs i was alittle off the Max-OT...messed up weights. This is my first week on the program! But my arms were done exactly as outlined. It might take me a week to get all my weights figured for the 4-6 reps but i promise i'll have it to a T by next week :) I believe week 2 is when they introduce proper warm-up?

Day 4 Back

Warm-up

Overall it seemed pretty short but again i didnt get my weights exactly right for 6 reps. Like i said next week i should be better at gauging my weight to reps. Still i felt a wicked pump in my lats which i've never felt before so that was a plus. Chest tomorrow! i'll post diet alittle later tonight.
