Background & Goals
Hi guys, so those of you who have been following my main log you will be familiar with my story, for those of you who aren't please feel free to catch up on From FAT to PHAT, my journey so far...
I know you're might be too lazy to look, so the important piece is this; with the help of a better diet, lot's of excercise, some supplements and the people on this board, i've gone from looking like this:-
to looking like this:- (picture taken last Saturday)
My goal remains to lean out, build muscle and eventually have a six pack.
I recently ran 8 week's of LG's natradol and now in PCT, and following some excellent information on other people's logs using AI products, I decided (after some discussion with the AI reps) to run the following
Post Cycle Therapy
Supp staples (fish oils, cissus, ASGT +AP, low carb protein, green tea, CLA)
Formadrol - using up what I have left should get me around 21 days, dosed as follows
week 2 - 4 a day week 3 - 3 a day
From 1st September for 30 days precisely
AI SWOLE stack (glycobol/Testopro/stoked) - dosed as directed
AI HGHPro - dosed as directed
AI Life Support - dosed as directed (and really part of my staples anyway)
DS Lean Xtreme - Cort control (as directed) 3 per day, 2am pre workout + 1, 4 hrs later BUT on double traning days i.e. TaeKwonDo and Weights, i'll be taking the second dose pre-workout and on non-training days 2 on waking and 1, 4 hrs later.
I also have an ECA stack on the way, but I have as of yet not decided whether or not I will start this during this 30 day period or wait until later
Over the next 6 weeks i'm going to be taking a volume based approach to my weight training, in that hope that lighter weights will help aid recovery, but also assist in my quest to further lean out. The routine I've choosed from my little collection is geared towards building broader shoulders, which of course as we all know is what gives a nice V shape to the body and will hopefully make me look leaner even if i am not!
I will be attempting to do each set with the same weight to failure, with the next set being 5 less than the previous set and so for 4 sets (5 if time/stamina allows). Once these become too easy, I will either up the weight or the number of reps. Starting set rep goal is 25, if i've choosen a weight that is too light I will carry on until I fail and then drop the next set by 5 - hopefully you get the picture
In addition I also do a Martial Art, TaeKwonDon(TKD), and will be doing this 4 - 5 hrs per week.
My typical schedule is Mon TKD (pm) Tues GYM (am) Wed TKD (pm) Thurs GYM (am) Fri Rest Sat Gym (am) TKD (pm) Sun Rest - work does occasionally get in the way and I have to mix it up a bit where I could be training am/pm on the same day i.e. Gym (am) and TKD (pm)
(taken lunchtime 1st September, no pump - all measurements are unflexed)
BF% 19.7% (scales) 14.99% (calipers - still not sure how good I am with this method yet)
Waist 36" (around the navel and yes this is were all the fat primarily remains)
