    Feedback on my wife's workout and supplement stack


    My wife doesn't have an account on here so I thought i'd just post this up to see what you guys thought. I am recommending some supplements to her to assist in her goals. Here's the info:

    She is 5' 6" and weighs 130 lbs at 25% bodyfat. She is looking to recomp for the summer. Her goals are to lose body fat while maintaining muscle mass and strength, and if possible gain some muscle. Here's what I have set up for her.

    Workout routine: 5x5 stronglifts with me; three day per week.

    Cardio: 2 days per week. At 25 minutes so far and going to add one minute each session until hitting 45 minutes.

    Diet: Chicken, turkey, fish, egg whites, fresh veggies, apples, oranges, brown rice, whole wheat bread, oatmeal, almonds, avocados, string cheese etc. This is similar to my diet only smaller portions.

    Supplements: DCP, ZMA, Creatine, Fish Oil, Protein (This is what i've come up with so far.)


    Any feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Breakfast: 2 egg whites, 1 piece turkey bacon, orange

    Mid morning snack: 1 String cheese, handful of almonds

    Lunch: 1 turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread; no cheese, no dressing.

    Mid afternoon snack: banana, handful of almonds, a few pieces of celery with laughing cow light cheese spread.

    Dinner: Two chicken tenderloins, 1 cup of veggies (broccoli or corn), 1/4 cup of brown or wild/long grain rice. Chicken is prepared in frying pan with olive oil and usually some sort of dry seasoning.

    On workout days 1 serving of protein post workout.

    Edit: Some of the other foods I mentioned will replace others but in similar quantities. Such as instead of chicken she will have fish.

    Diet looks good to me, low carbs and higher in fat. Protein is like 65 off days and 95 on workout days. Maybe add in some cottages cheese pre bed as a good snack. Id keep the cardio at ~30mins tops, or switch her over to HIIT on off days.

    Id had my gf use lean fx and she really liked it, she had pretty good results with similar diet and training as well as similar stats. So my reccomendation would be either that or a topical one like CEL's suppress C. Ive used suppress and liked it better than oral versions. LMK what ya think of that

    Yeah, the Suppress could be a good addition. I'll look into it; i've never researched it that much. Would it be a different dose for a woman?

    Would 10 mins be a good starting point for the HIIT?

    I assume it would be a standard dose for anyone, Ill ask to make sure though.

    Yeah Id start at 10mins and make your way up, dont want to strain her to much. HIIT really takes it out of you, when I did it Id always take 2+days off inbetween

    Well here's what I ordered for her:

    OEP by USP labs
    DCP by RPN
    ZMA
    Creatine Mono

    She's going to bridge from OxyElite to DCP. Then, when the time comes I may order her some Suppress C or Lean Xtreme. So far her diet and training are already producing some good results.

    Stack looks good but Im a little iffy on the mono, due to water retention. MCC or CEE may be a better choice but play it by ear since you already got some mono

    If anything I can use the mono. What about ATP tabs from Palo Alto? Seems like it's getting good reviews and claims (obviously since it's ATP) the same results as creatine without the bloat.

    Sounds pretty good, just increase the cardio, try and drink more water, separate the food out into 5-6 small meals, and just stay commited

    Do you think suppress c or similar is strong enough to worry about? In other words, does it have the potential to suppress cortisol too much? The reason i'm asking is because my wife seems to always feel tired and I'm afraid that may be due to her cortisol level being too low from adrenal fatigue or something. I know the only way to know for sure would be bloodwork.

    cortisol can be suppressed just like any other hormone, and just like any other hormone it will rebound. IME I use the product ~4 weeks and then taper it for 1-2 weeks afterwards.

    if she is worrying or has an issue with coritsol, Id skip it completely to be on the safe side
