I ve never ran erase but I have a few bottles sitting in a shoe box.
I am going to DermaTherm here is a week or so. Can't wait to see how it treats me. Being sub 10% I think it should do me nice. I am going to stay lean till next year so I don't have to cut hard for a show.
What's your gaol bf% for stage?

I know and I have never wanted to get this low... buttt I am seeing results over night... and it still seems like im holding muscle too... seeing new veins...Originally Posted by DreamWeaver

yeah I would refeed on leg day... not only should you do legs but also cardio on that day. and if you can do it all in the morning...Originally Posted by 02sixxer
this week I found a sweet spot... I have been doing my hr stepper once I wake up on fast.. after, I eat veggies and chicken... small handful of nuts... then wait thirty minutes jump into workout for that day.... my body is responding awsomely to it... every morning im seeing results... the stepper sucks though... today I felt bad and couldnt finish my workout, prob cause I didnt sleep well and just low on carbs... so I had about 100 carbs... body blew up off of it lol... looked awsome... went home after gym and passed out for three hours... I think im good now well see how workout will go tom.. ill post workouts later... yall are going to flip at what I did yesterday lol and even today...
09-13-2012, 07:08 PM
dw is right... but honestly... everyone is different... im responding well to it right now... dont know why... cause this is the lowest I have ever got... my body is worn out... but I have already gone to this extreme cant really go up and then down again... what I would recommend for anyone that is cutting gradually cut carbs... I cut carbs to soon... but the first time is all learning anyway

Yeah I am not going as low as you. I am going to 7%, maybe 6, for a photo shoot then maintain 7-9% till January then I will start a very lean bulk cycle through end of February. My bulk will be very clean, as clean as most peoples cuts, I just need a few more lbs of mass for stage in April. It should be a easy cut from 10%. If I didn't run Epi and Tzone I would do a small bulk in November and December but I will just be off pct and we have vacation and family coming in. So I figured I will blitz bulk with dry compounds and carry it into a cut and stage time. I still have to map it all out.
Just curious are you doing your own diet plans and cardio routines or did you have help from a trainer/dietitian?

Whoa been gone a week and there's 5 pages of reading... Looks like everything's going well, if you're responding well to the low calories good for you. I'd be worried about muscle wasting but that doesn't seem to be a problem. I hope you're not getting sick, I've been kinda fighting something for weeks. I see a lot of new supplements in your regiment, but why drop the epi? I seem to of missed the reason. Eca is awesome, I've been taking it the last couple weeks too.
09-14-2012, 12:49 AM
either my epi was bad or I wasnt responding to it like I used to... I was scratching.my head on that one... plus back pumps and side effects were building... so I said screw it and jump on the erase...Originally Posted by smash1904
erase pro was my second best thing that I know I respond well to... im already hard and lean getting vascular from only taking a week....
yeah I hope im not getting sick too... I might have to have a cheat bfast to jumpstart my immune system... hopefully not though... I have some emergen-c to drink if its not better tomorrow... I dunno... if my body could just hang on this training will give me some nice results....
09-14-2012, 12:51 AM
not sure right not buddy I really dont.measure it... ill do that when im on week two... im just doing it.by site... I know its low though...Originally Posted by 02sixxer

I have a buddy that is training me hes been through five contests so hes familiar... but hes a fat boy at heart... I tend to stay lean even bulking dirty...Originally Posted by 02sixxer
but im also making my own decisions. this is new but I am personal trainer certified and am familiar with this training... its just the last few weeks that get intense...
09-14-2012, 11:20 AM
It's good to have someone with you that's been there. I got certified as a trainer in 02 but don't do it professionally. Having that knowledge can really help. I have a good friend that has been competing for a little over a year and a half. He has a great knowledge base on diets but lacked on gym knowledge. He has made great progress over the last year. He has really started to learn how to build his body. He has just stared his cut for November show. He should do really well.
You are right the last few weeks ....... Is the time it gets hard. the strict diet, the cardio, the time spent. It has to feel good though to see the results. More then any scale, fat measurement, weight lifted, the mirror is the one thing that motivates me. When I see deep cuts, new veins, new striations, better muscle tone, I can dig deeper and work harder. I guess that's self motivation.
Wish the Epi would of produced better results for you! I love myself on it. It always treats me so good. I do see a lot of people that don't feel the same way. I guess its each person physiological make up.
