    Getting bigger and leaner with Alpha, 550, and Epi-V.


    Right off before I start anything I want to thanks the guys from finaflex, Kleen, Dreamweaver, ScottDoc, Snags, and Palmfist for giving me this opportunity. This is a semi-sponsored run in the which the sponsored products are 1-alpha and PureTest.


    We will start with some back ground information about myself.


    24 years old, been lifting aggressively for the past year and off and on for the past 5. I finally got my diet in check about a year ago and have been feeling better and better everyday. I finished up my first cycle of finaflex 1-andro back in December and had a nice gain of 19lbs, I did however pick up a good chunk of BF so since then I have scaled my caloric and carb intake back some and have dropped a fair bit of that extra BF that I gained. I'm currently 5'8 and floating between 145 and 148. I know there will be some that will come in here and say you need to gain some weight first blah blah blah, your more then welcome to your opinion but you can take it elsewhere. I'm currently holding my calories in between 2300 and 2700, proteins at 200+, Fats below 50, and carbs right around 100. Alot of my protein intake comes from shakes between 2 and 3 a day but that's not saying I'm not eating protein it just gives me that extra boost to hit my mark.


    Body stats:
    Starting weight: 146
    Right Bicep (unflexed): 11 1/4"
    Right Bicep (flexed): 13 1/8"
    Left Bicep (unflexed): 10 5/8"
    Left Bicep (flexed): 12"
    Waist measured right above hip bones: 31 7/8"
    Right Quad (unflexed 8in. Above center of knee cap): 20"
    Right Quad (flexed 8in. Above center of knee cap): 20"
    Left Quad (unflexed 8in. Above center of knee cap): 19 3/4"
    Left Quad (flexed 8in. Above center of knee cap): 19 3/4"


    Cycle layout:
    Product - Dose - length - Split
    PNI Thermadex - 1 cap - 60 Days - Pre workout
    FinaFlex 1-Alpha - 4 caps - 60 Days - 2 caps AM, 2 caps PM
    FinaFlex 550xd - 4 caps - First 30 days - 2 caps AM, 2 caps PM
    FinaFlex Epi-V - 3 or 4 caps - Last 30 days - 2 caps AM, 2 caps PM
    Perform - 4 caps - 60 days - 2 caps AM, 2 caps PM
    FinaFlex G8 - Half Scoop - 60 days - Right before bed 5 on 2 off
    FinaFlex PCT Revolution Black - 1 cap - if needed - Pre bed


    PCT
    Torem - 120 for 3 days/90/60/30 - 4 weeks - night
    FinaFlex PCT Revolution - 2 caps - 4 weeks - night
    Perform - 4 caps - 4 weeks - 2 caps AM, 2 caps PM
    FinaFlex Pure Test - 6 caps - 6 weeks - 3 caps AM, 3 caps PM
    FinaFlex Ignite 2 - 1 scoop - 4 weeks - Pre workout


    PCT black will only be used on cycle if I have any estrogen related sides. PureTest will be started one week before PCT. I will also be running a multi vitamin, probably talos and Achilles. I am going to try and be more in depth with my work outs. Plan right now is Monday thru Friday.


    Monday - 5 minute warmup then biceps and triceps
    Tuesday - 5 mi ute warmup then back and shoulders
    Wednesday - 45 minutes cardio
    Thursday - 5 minute warmup then legs
    Friday - 5 minute warmup then chest


    Goals:
    My plan is to gain only lean muscle and lose as much body fat as I can while gaining said lean mass. I think this will be a fun ride. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I am going to.

    In for this!

    I'm on that 4-a-day Alpha as well for 60 days; curious to see how it treats you w the XD and Epi-V. I realize money doesn't grow on trees but if you could spring for the product I'd consider bridging the epi v at least the last week of the XD; an extra bottle could supply that extra week and let you run the 4 caps e/d you were contemplating.

    Well genomyx origin starting to go down the shoot and then off to the gym for back and shoulders, shoulder are feeling good as I have had shoulder problems for the past 5+ years but ART chiropractic has done a great job fixing this. However I am having nagging lower back pain which he is also working on fixing but does not seem to be doing a whole bunch for it which is alot different then what he did for my shoulder. I'm still going to hit back hard but il be leaving out bent over BB rows. Legggooo

    I hardly ever do bent over rows anymore. Yates rows seem to agree with me more and I can lift more weight. Just gotta make sure to get a full stretch at the bottom and hold the contractions tight.

    I enjoy the bent over rows. Just need to make sure I don't let my back round over. Luckily my ART doctor does ironmans so he is knowledgable on lifting.

    You know what's funny is I started out doing bent over rows just like Yates rows. Then I did them alittle more bent over, I try doing less of an arc and see where that gets me,

    Also had a rotated L2 which my chiropractor fixed and did a lot of adjustments in my neck and all over my back. ART is the best thing that happened to me, thanks Kleen.

    Day 1 - 145.5 (0lbs)


    Well guys day 1 of the cycle, 2 alpha, 2 550xd, 1 thermadex, 2 perform, and 2 Achilles. I think I'm going to omit the Achilles though and just see how I feel.

    First day went well other then my stomach is pretty pissed off right now for some reason or another. Performed 35 minutes of elliptical work started out doing hit and then my heart was kind of bothering me. For people that don't know me as well I had a pretty bad battle with heart palpitations. Ended up going to the hospital once but it was deemed there just from stress and anxiety but when I continually jack my heart rate up and down I start not to feel well. So as much as I love HIIT I'm going to have to stop doing that to make sure I keep my heart in check.

    Tomorrow will be leg day. For people that did not see I posted my pictures. Kinda interesting because I have never seen my back when doing a rear double bi and its kinda nice to see that I actually notice my lats now which is nice and that I'm actually taking on some sort of V shape I believe. But anyway all is good.

    Your looking good just messing with you. Sorry to hear about the heart issue def lay off the HIIT. I find a 30 min inclined speed walk does the trick just fine. Get your arms going and focus on keeping your core tight and you get one hell of a burn.

    You don't need no stinking HIIT, you're lean as hell! You'll do just fine with whatev cardio you choose as long as you stay sharp on your diet - sounds like you've got a good idea of what's been working for your body.

    Heavy bentover rows can bug me too, I wear a belt if I feel the back needs the support. And the 550xd has some arimistane in it and 1-alpha and epi-v are pretty dry so I doubt you'll have need for Revolution on cycle like you said.

    I know I don't need it. I almost do it more as conditioning, kinda like working out my lungs. I have bad asthma so I do it to keep my lungs in shape if that makes any sense. Iv worn a back brace during the day before but never when working out. I don't plan on it either as with the way I am it will provide more support but also cover up if I am doing more damage so I avoid wearing them for that reason. If I was lifting super heavy I would consider buying one. I'm not one for 1 rep maxes. Il be starting a workout book today so il be able to list all my light weight leg lifts lol.

    I agree on the HIIT I hate it and think it is not needed IMO I know ill get flamed for saying that but like stated above I believe, from experience walking at an incline or the stair climber work best for me. But to each their own. Looking lean bud put in the work and eat and this will be fun for sure :-)

    Thanks for joining EM. 160 would be great but like I said, I would like to get leaner and bigger so this run even though I be putting up daily weight it's more about the pictures.

    Day 2 - 144.5 (-1.0lbs)


    So today was leg day. First thing first is my squats I keep at 5 reps not because I'm tired but because that is about as much up and Down as my knees can take for some reason. Also the seated cable legs press is annoying because the weight is nothing like a plated leg press which I like better but anyway. One other thing I noticed today and yesterday is I am getting dizzy after every set. I'm wondering if it is the thermadex since the finaflex products have not kicked in yet. Il see what some of you guys say and I might end up dropping it. Well here it is first time I have ever kept track of my workout. Only gave enough rest to write down the set.

    5 minute elliptical warmup

    Seated cable leg press
    2 warmup sets
    90x10
    110x10
    130x10
    150x10
    190x10

    Seated cable calf extensions
    2 warmup sets
    110x10
    130x10
    130x10
    70x10 - 2 second pause at full extension

    Smith machine squats - not counting the bar as any weight
    2 warmup sets
    70x10
    90x5
    110x5
    140x5

    Cool down stretch

    I hate using a smith for squats but since there is no power rack then it's what I have to use. My leg day is also my shortest day. You will see with chest tomorrow there is alot more volume.
