good luck......Erase is phenomenal
I've been dieting for about 8 weeks now, and have dropped 12lbs of fat and actually gained 1lb lean body mass. My progress has stalled a bit, and instead of dropping my calories excessively low, i've decided to start taking the erase + alpha t-2. I've been reading a ton of good things about both erase and AT2, so I figured it would be great to see if it lives up to all the hype. Plus, I think my estrogen may be a tad bit high, nothing extreme, i just tend to hold fat around my obliques, low back, and abs.
I will be updating this log on a daily basis with my workouts, my nutrition stays the same day to day, so no need to post it. I'll log any and all effects that I feel from this stack. i'll post before and after pictures. I will also have bod pod measurements at the beginning and end of the cycle. Wish me luck...

Alpha-T2 us a great product - so much so that I have made it one of my STAPLES. And I'll be using Erase in 2-3 weeks
I completely agree. I do the minimum amount possible to be effective. Its nice to see that someone thinks i'm sensible. You may disagree once you see my workouts. I do all my workouts in specialization phases. The body part that i'm specializing on will get hit twice a day for 3 days in a row, then a day off. So right now its , Mon, Tues, Wed: back twice a day, thursday: off, Friday: Legs, Saturday: chest shoulders tris, Sunday: off
Oh by the way, I'm currently waiting on my Erase and AT2 to get here. They should probably be here tomorrow or monday, possibly tuesday though.
i cant wait to jump on this stack ive been cutting down very slowly for 2 months ive dropped 9lbs trying to really preserve muscle but i to hold water/fat on lower abs, and lower back hopefully this stack will bring out more definition... i cant wait, start it nov.1
Looking forward to see your theories on your exercise splits.
And of course the effects of the stack!

well for starters, on all my workout days I try to break my lifting up into two sessions. This allows me to use higher intensity for each session, due to being less fatigued. It will increase your testosterone levels for twice the amount of time and also helps to keep your metabolism sped up for a longer period throughout the day.
I feel that muscles respond best to specialization phases, at least the changes are more noticeable. I've also found that if i do 3 days of specialization work back to back that I grow more on the 4 days of rest than I would if I just worked the body part 3 times a week with a day of rest in between each. This type of training has to be really well planned out, because no one could recover from heavy deadlifts for 3 days in a row... Most people think a routine like mine can only be done while on countless drugs, currently I have only taken protein powder, creatine, and fish oil. I have no problem with recovery, because my plan is pretty well thought out.
For my diet, I use Intermittent Fasting. It sounds pretty contradictory to everything most people have ever heard about dieting. Basically I have a 16 hour period in which I don't consume any calories. I have an 8 hour window in which to consume calories. This increases insulin sensitivity, increases catecholamine levels which in turn boosts metabolism, and it also increases natural growth hormone production. Obviously growth hormone helps to build muscle as well as drop body fat, and keeps my joints feeling better. This type of dieting also allows for better digestion. The thing that probably helps the most with this diet is that it allows me to consume ALL of my calories in the peri-workout window. I think this is how i've been able to build muscle while dropping fat.
If you were only doing 1-2 exercises per session or short 10-15 minute sessions, then doing two-a-days are not so bad, but if it's anything much more than that you need more recovery time.
Rosie, you'd definitely be surprised at what you can recover from if you've done it for a while, and use proper peri workout nutrition.

I've been doing this program for a few months now, and haven't become overtrained yet. I become slightly overreached at the beginning of every week, but i recover by the end of the week.
Yesterday, I got asked to be in part of a research study, so i had to do some isometric pulls from different bar positions. From the floor i averaged 700lbs of force. At the top of the knee, i averaged 830lbs of force. and from mid-thigh, i averaged 1350lbs of force. Looks like if i really want my deadlift to go up i need to start doing some deficit deadlifts and pulls from the knee.
Well its still in the pilot stages, so i'm not sure that I can say yet.
My erase and alpha T-2 came in today. As of right now, I havent noticed anything. I probably didn't notice any heating effects due to being outside in the cold for a good part of the day. Monday, will probably be the first day i'll be able to tell a difference. I'm hoping the Erase really starts drying me out.
Natty, I've been taking it on an empty stomach so far. Thats pretty easy for me to do, since I'm dieting IF style. I'll be taking my first Erase and AT2 at about 8 am, and I wont eat my first meal till 2 pm. I think this diet will maximize the effectiveness of this stack.
Today, I woke up pretty late. So, I only ended up taking 1 dose of erase and dose AT2. I'm already starting to feel a slight increase in libido, but it may just be one of those days. I haven't noticed much if any drying out yet, but I did just start taking it yesterday. Gym performance wasn't anything spectacular today, but it was a solid session.
I'm trying to decide whether to start my third week of my back specialization tomorrow, or jump to my leg specialization.
Today's diet 7/10
Today's lifting: 8/10

I had a pretty sweet pump at the end of the session. I just tore my meniscus two weeks ago, so I shouldn't even be squatting right now, but I just cant stop myself. Obviously the weight is down just a tad, but it should come back up.
Day 1 pics. Hopefully these will drastically change over the course of the next 45 days.
Definitely could use some better lighting. I may have to try taking these pics in the bathroom sometime, much better lighting in there.
