    Default IGF-2 Growth Spurt

    Thanks to Don and Applied Nutriceuticals for giving me a full bottle of the IGF-2 to try out.
    I will be running this Log for 30 days with the first 14 days of added Neovar.
    This Log will also be running along side my PW/GM/GG Ultimate Gain Stack which i have purchased to run for 3 months and gain some good quality Mass.

    IGF-2 :

    IGF-2™ “Immediate Growth Factor”™

    You’ve got to do a lot of things right to get the massive muscle size, density, strength and hardness you see among the nationally-ranked and pro-level bodybuilders. You’ve got to keep you protein intake high, train aggressively, manage your carb intake, get sufficient rest, etc. But let’s face it…you can do everything right and your gains will be still be limited unless you also do something to increase your testosterone and growth hormone levels. These two hormones are the most anabolic substances know to man – so it’s no wonder that serious bodybuilders administer them directly in various oral and injectable forms. Unfortunately these pharmaceutical-grade preparations are not readily available without a prescription, so for the rest of us, we must find another way.

    Only IGF-2™ “Immediate Growth Factor” ™ provides the mechanisms to trigger exponential increases in BOTH SERUM TESTOSTERONE AND HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE LEVELS! Better yet, the effects of this ground-breaking formulation can be felt just days after starting. Even hardcore bodybuilders with years of experience with steroids and growth hormone (HGH) rave about this formulation, reporting that it keeps them from “crashing” during off cycles, allowing for continuous, compound muscle growth! Every component of this revolutionary formula either directly or indirectly promotes testosterone and / or HGH production, while also triggering powerful fat-burning mechanisms. The result? Everything you want: Massive increases in muscle size, strength, leanness and density!

    The synergistic compounds contained in IGF-2™ stimulate a variety of complex reactions and messenger systems in the body, and have been clinically proven to increase testosterone production. IGF-2 contains large amounts of Spirosta-steroidal saponins which are intermediates to numerous hormonal pathways in the body, including testosterone production. When ingested, desoxydiosgenin that is contained in IGF-2 is enzymatically converted to 11-oxa-5 alpha-androstane-3,17-dione, a portion of which is then converted to testosterone through the testes. Increased levels of testosterone signals the muscles to increase protein synthesis and nitrogen retention, leading to greater strength, size and recovery.

    IGF-2 drives other dynamic biomechanisms including L-Dopa-induced growth hormone release, and increased testosterone secretion through prolactin inhibition. Prolactin is a hormone that regulates testosterone production, and too much of it can suppress the secretion of gonadotropins, which ultimately hinders testosterone production. The variety of Mucuna Pruriens used in IGF-2 is standardized to 25% L-Dopa, delivering large amounts of this active ingredient per capsule. L-Dopa is a precursor to Dopamine, a powerful biogenic amine, and L-Dopa is the only method of transport of Dopamine through the blood-barrier. L-Dopa-induced GHRH release (growth hormone releasing hormone) signals the pituitary to release HGH. HGH is essentially a polypeptide hormone that stimulates skeletal muscle cells to grow and divide; providing for significant, permanent muscle hypertrophy in adults. HGH also aids in cellular recovery and acts synergistically with testosterone to provide a highly anabolic muscle-building environment.

    IGF-2™ also stimulates the production of cyclic AMP (cAMP) from ATP. cAMP generation has a variety of effects on tissues, but the most notable is the stimulation of the thyroid to produce thyroxin, which promotes fat metabolization. The increased cAMP levels activate the protein kinase enzyme, which in turn activates hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) in target tissues. cAMP also signals for the production of luteinizing hormone (LH), which has been shown to elevate testosterone levels in males. Elevated levels of cAMP and LH stimulate a marked increase in the use of fat as body fuel, and are strongly correlated to increased testosterone production.

    In short:
    IGF-2 delivers the goods: Explosive growth. Accelerated recovery. Fat metabolization. Anti-catabolism. If you are serious about results, there really is no other choice.

    I will be putting this down as a sponsored log even though they haven't specifically asked me to do this but as they where good enough to send me a 30 day supply as a sample.

    Here's a few things i will be checking before and after the 30 days :

    1 RM Bench Press - 112kg (246.4lbs)
    1 RM Shoulder Press - 75.5kg (166.1lbs)
    1 RM Leg Press - 360kgs (792lbs)

    Weight - 165lbs
    Body measurements :
    Chest - 43.5"
    Biceps - 14.75"
    Thigh - 24"
    Waist - 31"
    BF% - 19%

    This is to gauge how my strength/weight/size gains and reduction in BF% are throughout the 30 days

    I stopped taking my GABA two weeks ago before starting on the IGF-2 as it might have interfered with it when taken pre-bed.
    Did notice last night though i had a real Vivid dream, Could this be an effect from the IGF-2? We will see as the month goes on.
    I have felt good all day so far with no issues.

    Shoulders and Abs at the Gym tomorrow...

    Overview :

    Nutrition as above. Good session today again in the gym but felt more motivated today. No significant changes as of yet. After workout i did a good stretching session as my upper body felt a little tight.
    Cardio session this afternoon then i will be having 3 days off as i am in work for 3, 12 hour days and can't get to gym but probably will slip a cardio session in over this time.
    I will be back in the gym after this though for 4 straight days next week.

    I have noticed that my sleep is improved to something like when i was taking the GABA but with life-like dreaming.

    I will be weighing myself and take my BF% tomorrow as it will be a week on the IGF-2 just to see if there is any change at all.

    Overview :

    Good, Strong workout today. I felt great all the way through the session. Pumps are improving and felt quite good today.
    My sleep is getting better and feeling very refreshed when i wake up.
    My mood is still on the up and seems to be getting better each day too.

    Feeling quite solid at the moment and muscle's have a definate fullness to them now. No real strength increase or weight gain as such. But still only day 8.

    The IGF-2 Might possibly be doing somthing as my body shape is changing slightly when i look in the mirror. My shoulders are definatley looking more rounded for starters but not that much bigger.

    I won't be measuring again until the end of the 30 days just to see what difference, if any, in size and BF.

    Overview :

    Took my Supplements as above. Got to the Gym and after my first chest exrecise on the Decline Press i could feel my chest swelling nicely.
    By the end of my Chest exercises i was positively bursting across the chest area.

    Dont know whether the IGF-2 is kicking in or the GlycerGrow but either way something is working to add benefit to my workouts.

    No significant strength gains as such but seem to have more explosive power in the thrust part of the exercises.
    My mood is still good and more motivated to give more concentration and intensity to my workouts.
    Definate shape change occuring of my upper body but no real size gains as of yet.

    Tomorrow Shoulders/Traps to work on at the gym with my Abs being done on Friday with my Leg routine.

    Had a very light Leg workout today to allow my knee to slowley come back into the game.
    It was quite a good workout really, better than i thought it would be actually.
    Did some Dead Lifts as this didn't put as much stress on my knee as squats do. No pain at all in the knee throughout the workout but didn't want to push it.

    Mood is very good at moment. Body aching in the muscles from the last 3 days working out but nothing unusual.

    Working the Night shift for the next 3 nights so will be back training on Monday afternoon. Unless i fit a cardio session in over the weekend.

    Tonight is always the worst as i don't/can't get much sleep during the day before i go to do my 12 hour night. So i eat throughout tonight to keep my energy up...

    My Delt/Chest tie-in is coming up well too and a better shape forming so far.

    All in all quite a good session at the gym and hopefully a good day to follow.

    Overview :

    Didn't get to the gym so did a cardio session today. Thought i'd see how long i could go on the Orbitrek at the same pace non stop. I managed 45 mins before feeling any fatigue.
    I only normally use this to warm up for my Tae-Bo sessions.
    So today was a good indication that my stamina/endurance has increased quite dramatically.

    A good cardio session to say the least as.

    My mood is still good and my sleep is excellent. No aches in the muscles today but still did a stretching session to keep myself supple.

    Be back in the gym in the morning for my Back/Biceps workout.
