Hi my name is Michal and I’m trying out Magnitropin by Myokem, and during the trial I will doing the review of the supplement for PricePlow.com.
Before I get started, I would like to say thank you to Myokem and PricePlow for making this happen. This product was provided free of charge from Mike at PricePlow.
The product claims to be able to increase lean muscle mass and I’m here to put it to the test. You can read about it here.
My goals are pretty basic like alot of gym goers and it’s simple to add more muscle to my frame without gaining fat.
Here’s the skinny (hopefully not for long):
- Height: 5ft 7inch
- Weight: 169pounds
- BF%: 14.1
My biggest challenge would be keeping up with my macros on a consistent basis. I can hit my protein reqs (I use IIFYM CALCULATOR), but for my fats and especially my carbs it’s hit or miss due to just not proper planning on my part.
But at the same notion I don’t plan on being super lean for a bb show so it’s not my biggest worry.
I follow a power building split that I made up myself. It’s based of Wendler 5-3-1 but I add a whole day for pulling exercises. I don’t feel as if a lower back exercise should coincide with my other pulling motions, so the deadlift has its own day. The days can be mixed except on Saturday I always finish with shoulders/lagging parts.
- Squat: 5:3:1
- Leg Press: 4×12 Drop Sets 3 Times
- Weighted Lunges: 4×8-15 Steps
- Leg Extension: 1×40
- Calve Work
