    As you are looking to gain 8 pounds of LBM while dropping from 15% b/f to 12% b/f,and are an older lifter (like myself),I would suggest running Max Bulk in 2 seperate cycles,at label dosing.This will stretch out one bottle of Max Bulk for 2 full cycles whilst keeping your time on to "only" a month.This will allow for a quicker,and easier PCT whilst hastening full recovery and retention of LBM gained while on cycle.See the outline below for suggested supplements.I am a proponent of cordyceps,at 4 grams a day it has HCG mimetic properties.

    Weeks 1-4:

    Max Bulk 3 caps ED
    Cordyceps 4 grams ED (dosed upon waking only)
    NAC + Vit. C 600mg / 1 gram (dosed twice a day)
    Fish oil 1-3 grams total epa/dha per day (dependant on phenotype)
    COq10 50mg ED

    Weeks 5-8

    DAA 3 g ED
    NAC + Vit. C 600mg / 1 gram (dosed twice a day)
    Fish oil 1-3 grams total epa/dha per day (dependant on phenotype)
    COq10 50mg ED

    Weeks 9-16 would be a rinse & repeat of weeks 1-8.

    Training wise,I think Westside,5/3/1 or 5x5 would suit your goals.

    With the goal of losing b/f while gaining LBM ,I would add add in some low rep Olympic lifting in,2-3 times per week which will replace traditional cardio.Lighter poundages,around 50% 1RM.15 minutes,with minimal rest intervals i.e. 30 seconds.If your form starts to break down at all,start resting longer.Do this in place of longer cardio sessions.I would suggest a light 20 minute jog a week,around 1 mile.

  3. Wow, impressed with the thoroughness of this cycle and workout layout. I've always wanted to try AF products. Will be definitely down for this as the fall cycle. Thanks Colin!

    Looking for recomp or lean bulk. Can't put on much fat as I have a hell of a time losing it.

    NOt a problem at all.As long as I've been into lifting and experimenting with various training ideologies and supplementation,I'm glad to be able to provide others with a bit of insight,based on what I've found to be optimal approaches.

    I'd suggest the same to you as I did Kenpoengineer,for the most part,as you both are looking for a lean bulk and recomp of sorts.

    I'd add in green coffee bean or green tea extract to enhance fat loss,I believe I neglected to mention that in my last post as well.I think GTE or GCB extracts should be considered staples wether on cycle or off,based on how they promote fat loss along with a host of other health benefits.Same for fish oil and NAC+ Vit C.

    NAC is specifically good for abdominal fat loss.

    I will offer up the following on training approaches,for now.Definitely a great read by Marc McDougal....I'd suggest reading thru his Fitport site and his articles on Mind & Muscle (which are just about the only good thing left on that site) but here's a good starting point.I should have mentioned this to the last poster,actually now that I think about it.McDougal is one of those rare cats who actually employs scientific theory behind his training splits.

    Specifically,in your case,considering you are coming out of training more allocated towards long distance running,I would suggest the training outlined below to help avoid injury as it is based around antagonistic ,muscle groups,which in itself will prevent muscular imbalances and reduce the chance of injury.It's not uncommon,considering the large boost in strength gains which kick in quickly from PH's like Max-Bulk,for lifters to get over anxious and injure themselves.

    Alternately,this other platform would work nicely as well:

    I'll do my best to help construct AF cycles,within this thread.
    5'10", 27 year old, 200lb, lean bulk cycle. I train predominantly for strength, being the 135lb weakling before i started lifting had made me want strength over size.

    Me too I was 135 lbs when I was 20 yrs old. I'm 5"11, 27 yrs old and have battled some serious health issues. When I turned 25 I decided to start lifting. I really care more about lean mass and aesthetics but I want strength too. The best of both worlds. It is not easy for me to gain strength but I swear any strength that I gain seems to pack in some muscle. I'm not very strong compared to most guys I see but I'm 1000 times stronger than I was when I started. This coming from a guy who was 90 lbs at 17 yrs old lol

    Sounds like you've made quite the transformation there bro! I remember not even being able to squat 135.... I put up 405 last week for 4.

    405 was my goal and I'm glad I achieved it, that's more than 2x my body weight.
