    Can you guys give any suggestions for the timing? I usually workout around 8pm, so it's tough to take a serving of RA so late in the evening, otherwise I'm up all night.

    Well personally I like to time it like this:

    2-2-Cardio-2

    or

    2-2-Gym-2

    Ahh, so 3 dosings/day? hmm, never thought of that. What time do you usually hit the gym at?

    Default Day 8

    Back Day!!

    Lat Pulldown: (warmup 105x12, 105x10, 120x6, 150x3, 165x1, 180x1) 190x6 (PR!), 190x5, 185x6

    Deadlift: 205x2, 265x6, 265x6 (PR!), 265x4

    DB Row: 90x6, 90x6 (PR!)

    Reverse Cable Xover: 25x6, 25x6

    I felt great today, lots of energy, strength was up. I attacked the DL's today, breaking my previous best by 40 lbs! I was aiming for at least 2 PR's today and got 3, so I'm feeling good. Again, the Red Acid seemed to give a nice energy lift... I've also noticed it's helped my focus when I take it about 30 minutes before my wo.

    Default Day 9

    Shoulder day!!

    DB Military: (warmup 35x12, 35x10, 40x6, 45x3, 55x1) 65x6, 65x6, 65x5

    Cable Lateral Raise: 20x6, 25x6, 25x5

    BB Shrug: 275x6, 275x5, 275x6

    Upright Row: 100x6, 100x6 (PR)

    Only 1 PR today, but I'm fine with that. I had a sharp pain in my forearms, real deep like it was in my bone. Anytime I'd lift the weight into position it would flare up... not sure what that's about.

    I weighed in this morning at 201! Down 4 lbs already, I might break the 200 barrier yet I haven't been this lean in years. Tomorrow morning, if I can wake up early enough, I'll take some measurements and see what's changed.

    Congrats bro! I remember saying those same words myself when I did my first Red Acid log. Don't sell yourself short though, 200 is nothing. Go for 195!

    I'm proud of you bro.

    SCT
    Back to the basics!

    Thanks for the comments Stone Cold!

    Default Day 10

    Took some measurements this morning:

    Bicep (relaxed): 13 7/8" (-1/8")
    Bicep (Flexed): 14 3/4" (-3/8")
    Wrist: 7 1/4"
    Calf (5" below knee): 16" (-1/8")
    Thigh (5" above knee): 21 3/4" (-1/4")
    Waist: 36 1/4" (-3/4")
    Stomach (at navel): 37" (-1"!)
    Neck: 15 1/4"

    BF%: 20.5 (-1.5%)

    I gotta say everything is positive so far. The inch off my stomach is my favourite. I knew my clothes had been feeling looser, I just didn't realize it was by so much.

    For the BF%, I use the 3-point method, I take each measurement 5 times and then take the average. I'd like to have a more accurate test done though, just to see how close the calipers really are.

    sweet jj!
    nice change in measurements! You can really tell a difference from the pics too!
    how long has it been since you last measured yourself again?

    It's been 10 days so far. Those stats are compared to my starting measurements I took on the morning I started taking RA.

    I know, I'm a little hesitant to believe it myself... but the measurements are there, I checked them all twice because I didn't think it was right. Either way I'm happy!

    Chest Day!

    DB Bench: (warmup 40x12, 40x10, 50x6, 60x3, 70x1) 80x6, 80x6, 80x5

    DB Incline: 70x6, 70x6

    Straight-Arm Pullover: 50x6, 60x6, 60x6 (PR)

    Machine Flyes: 165x6, 180x6 (PR), 180x5

    Things felt good today. Even though I didn't get a PR on my bench, it felt strong... I think that's the most reps I've done at 80 lbs, and my spotter wasn't helping much except the very end. Next week I'll look at bumping it up to 85!

    I'm taking the next 2 days off from the gym because of a hot date and a family outing, but I'll try to get a cardio session in there. It's been a while since I've had a cardio day.

    I've still got that pain in my forearms... maybe 2 days off will help it, we'll see.

    hehe thanks for keeping me on my toes AB!! I took an extra day off because of a tweaked shoulder. Today I was feeling good to go though, so I hit the legs!

    Squats: (Warmup 135x10, 135x10, 155x6, 185x3, 205x1) 225x5, 225x5 (PR), 225x4

    Leg Press: 450x6, 450x6 (PR), 450x4

    SLDL: 165x6 (3 sets)

    Seated Calf Raise: 190x10, 190x10 (PR)

    Rotary Calf Machine: 405x 10, 405x10

    I had 3 days off leading up to this day, so I pushed myself harder and got some decent PR's. I'm off to bed now, gotta get some rest before I head back to the gym in the morning for some arm work.

    Agreed! I'm usually the same way, but those days I just couldn't hit the gym as both events were right after work and lasted late into the night. Got another date tonight, but I'll be hitting the gym beforehand. It's definitely a good way to calm the nerves!
