Well here it is fellow animals my new journey/log. I will once again be going for a journey for mass, mass, and more mass until i reach my new goal of 220-225 pounds. To give some backround info on myself to start out, I have been working out for 3.5 years solid now but for the last 1.5 years training really hard. I started out a 150 pound scrawny kid out of highschool I know weigh in at 195 pounds at six feet tall. After going through many different programs throughout my years training I still like to try new routines and change my routines up every 7-8 weeks. After all this I jsut finished my second year of university enrolled in kineselogy with the plans to get my personal training and fitness consulting certificates. The routine that iam starting out with in this log is Optimized Volume Training. Here a link where you can read up more on it for now I'll give the basics http://www.t-nation.com/findArticle.do?article=257ovt2. OVT is a step off of German High Volume training, it encorperates a 5x5 scheme with two supersetted exercises per muscle group allowing 100 reps be muscle group per training session. I plan to do a full eight week cycle and then find another routine afterwards. As far as supplementation i have used most products to date but I'am keeping natural and therefore have never touched prohormones or any sort of steriod, as far as the animal line goes i have used pak, nitro, m-stak, stak2.
