Overkill or Ok?

  1. Overkill or Ok?


    Hi, I was planning on the following stack and wanted some feedback before diving in.

    Drive - Applied Nutriceuticals
    RPM - Applied Nutriceuticals
    IGF-2 - Applied Nutriceuticals
    NeoVar - Applied Nutriceuticals
    Lean Xtreme - Designer Supplements
    DCP - RPN
    Relora - Now Foods
    Ashwagandha - Now Foods
    Purple Warth - Controlled Labs
    Activite Sport - MHP

    Here are the particulars for me. I am 40 year old, 210lbs, 5'7", 32% body fat and Total Test is 193. I am also somewhat muscular since I have always lifted weights but never really took supplements. However, I have a lot of my bodyfat mostly in the abdomen area, probably due to stress and cortisol. My goal is too loose the body fat (get it under 20% for the first time in my life), while not loosing too much weight. Ideally, I'd like to be btwn 190-200 lbs while adding some more muscle and losing the fat.

    Other things to consider: I am little concerned about anything that might make me a little too aggressive (I have a bit of a short fuse). I also do not sleep that well at night so I am a little concerned about anything that might keep me up at night and I am sometimes depressed (although since I started working out again and cleaned up my diet a bit I am feel much better, but the sleep is still sometimes irregular).

    Its kind of a bit much to jump all in at once with honestly for your first venture into supplements. Given the specifics of what you are looking at, i'd probably go with drive, IGF-2, DCP and relora to start with at most.

    Really diet + exercise are key, the supplements just add some extra helping hands. Without good diet + exercise plans, even steroids are useless. So give us some more specifics on those

    I am lifting about 30-45 minutes per day with 20-25 minutes of cardio at the end. I am doing a three day split: Legs/Chest & BACK/Shoulders, Tri's & Bi's. I usually take one day off during the week and usually do one day of HIIT (no weights on that day) followed with abs. As for calories, I'd say that I am somewhere btwn 2400 - 3000 per day but that's just a rough estimate with no cookies,cake, diet soda, chocolate, etc.

  4. Anyone else? What about the other usual suspects from AN?

    Thank you.

  5. umm If you dont have a lot of supp experience I would suggest starting out simple and working your way up to a more aggressive plan as you progress, remember simplicity is the key to success!! That and a proper diet/ exercise program...Anyhow, Good Luck!!

    Sounds good. What about Neovar? Won't I need some creatine to help lifting, or by already using PW then I don't need it, or could it be that creatine makes you retain water and that's something I should avoid all together given my goal?

    COOL got that now.

    PS what about the specifics that you asked about, i.e., diet and exercise...seem ok?

    Not sure if Easy's the man to ask that to; he's currently sitting at 40(?), 15%, benching 135lbs and decided he was ready to juice.

    Seriously though, in terms of the specifics, could you give us more? You listed general 'types' of foods. In order to get the results you want, you will need to nail your diet down. There is now a diet tracker on this site, that should help you.

    In terms of your split, it is a little bit out of whack - I see no back in there, and arms twice. A split I like is:

    Chest
    Back
    Off
    Tri
    Legs
    Bi
    Off

    Start with the RPM, Drive, and NeoVar. After a few weeks of those, then add in some of the other supplements. I would go with IGF-2 and DCP.

    There were no added benefits and the rhodiola started to give me insomnia. I also used to rep for AN so I got mine for free.

    My bad that was a typo. I meant Chest & Back not Chest & Arms (I have since fixed it).

  23. What kind of volume and intensity are you working with in that split?

    Seems ok in a general way, the devil is always in the details of course. Are you following an existing workout plan or is this something you pieced together?

    as far as the diet goes, even if you don't do it every day at least for a while you should use something like fitday.com to really nail down your specific calories just to get a good idea of what you are really averaging, so you can easily make adjustments. Particularly for loosing fat in people who are historically high in bodyfat lower carb or tapered carbs (most carbs in morning, no carbs after a cutoff in the afternoon) tends to work well, also really separating the meals so you more or less have either protein + carbs or protein + fat in a meal, but not protein + fat + carbs.

    Will the Neovar cause bloating and cramping?

    Not with adequate water and electrolyte consumption.

    3 sets usually 10,8,6 reps per exercise.

    Is this true of all creatine products or just Neovar? Sorry but like I mentioned previously I am starting to bloat a little on PW and now some lite cramps.

    Thanks and I don't care if you're "currently sitting at 40(?), 15%, benching 135lbs and decided he was ready to juice"
