I figure I'll keep it pretty simple here. I'll post up my workouts, supplements, and diet in here daily, along with my thoughts and observations on the product. I'll also update my weight/stats about 2-3 times a week.

My current split is as follows:

Monday- Chest/Calves/Abs/Cardio
Tuesday- Arms/Cardio
Wednesday- Legs/Abs
Thursday- Shoulders/Cardio
Friday- Back/Calves/Abs/Cardio
Saturday- Off
Sunday- Cardio

I train when I wake up, which is usually late morning.

Here is my current stack:

Pak
Flex
Omega
Uni-Liver
Stak
Project C
Pump (Red Pill Removed)
Beta Ala9
Nitro
ZMA
Intra-Aid
Torrent

Timing is as follows:

Stak- 45 Minutes PWO
Project C- 30 Minutes PWO
Pump(Minus Red Pill)/Beta Ala9- 20 Minutes PWO
Nitro- Immediately PWO
Intra-Aid- During WO
Nitro #2- Immediately after lifting but before cardio.
Torrent- Immediately after cardio.
Pak/Omega/Flex- With meals 1,2, and 3 respectively.
Uni-Liver- 12 daily, split into 3 servings of 4 pills with meals 1,2, and 3 respectively.
Project C #2- Taken sometime in the evening.
ZMA- Taken 30-60 minutes before bed.

Current diet is pretty simple. I eat around 2,500 calories a day, trying to get in at least 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight, low-moderate fat, and low-moderate carbs. Two of my meals are protein shakes, with a whole food meal in between them. I drink at least 1 gallon of water a day, usually more. Saturday is a cheat day for me, other than that I don't have any cheat meals during the week.

So that's about it. I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes.

Rest

I just got back from a trip last night, and I needed to catch up on sleep, so I'm shifting my split by one day over this week.

Here are my current stats:

Height: 5'11"
Weight: 285

I don't know what my bodyfat percentage is, but I do know that it is high. I'm sure that it is probably around 20-25 percent. Besides weight, I use the mirror, my clothes, and how I feel to gauge my progress (or the opposite thereof, as was the case several months ago).

Even though it was an off day, I still took my supps on the same schedule that I would follow on a workout day.

So far I've only had one dose of Project C. I definitely felt an energy boost after taking it, and I'm still feeling it even though it's been almost 90 minutes since I took it. With one dose though, it's hard to tell if this feeling is real or just a placebo effect based on my expectations and excitement. I don't think that that is the case at all, though. Time will tell I guess. I'm really looking forward to hitting the gym tomorrow, that is for sure.

So far, I am loving Project C!

It gives me a huge energy boost for training (which I do shortly after waking in the morning),which stays with me through my workouts. Furthermore, while I am working out I feel like I am sweating more. I've lost at least four pounds on the scale already, and I look and feel a little leaner. I am really looking forward to seeing how the rest of this test goes for me, and from what I've seen already it should be good.

Saturday 5/30/09

Weight: 281

No change on the weight from last week. However, I look leaner in the mirror and feel leaner as well (clothes are a little looser).

Project C is still having the same effects on me, which is to say that I am absolutely loving the stuff.

About 20-30 minutes after taking it, I find myself getting an energy boost which lasts for an hour or two, sometimes a little more. This boost in energy seems to wear off gradually, without any kind of crash or rapid change in energy level, which is definitely a plus.

With Project C I have more energy for my workouts, which means I can hit it harder. I lift pretty much right after I wake up, so Project C helps me to shake off any lethargy I might be feeling on any given morning. Previously, there were some days where I would find myself still feeling tired until I was several sets into my workout. With Project C, I'm hitting the gym ready to kill it.

I am also noticing a warm sensation that occurs in conjunction with the energy boost, and lasts for roughly the same amount of time. Basically, I just feel warmer, but not in any kind of negative way. It feels good.

While working out, whether it be lifting or cardio, I also seem to be sweating more than I normally would be. I start sweating sooner than I normally would, and I am sweating more than usual in terms of volume. This is with my normal level of intensity, wearing the same clothes as usual, and with the gym being at the same relative temperature.

Keep up the good work bro.
