Napalm log (unsponsored)
Just received my first bottle of Napalm - I am trying to lose some stubborn stomach and chest fat.
I'm eating a clean diet and doing 45 min of morning cardio 6 days a week.
I have to get my exact weight today, but I'm 5' 11.5" and around 180 lbs, probably 21-22% bf.
Here are my starting measurements (I know, I have a lot of work to do):
Waist (narrowest) 33
Waist (widest) 37.75
I taking BCAAs before my morning cardio with Green MAGnitude.
After I lean up I'm going to bulk up to try to put some lean mass on. I'll keep this log updated as often as I can!

Yea don't feel pressed to post pics. Personally I used Napalm at about 7-8% bf and I know it is recommended for use to get rid of the last bit of body fat. I would suggest you hold off on it, and try a fat burner like Leviathan, Recreate, Lipo AM/PM, Reduction.. there's tons.
Anyways good luck, and if you got any Q's just ask, I've gone thru 2 bottles of Napalm.

yeah i ordered some reduction and napalm,,,im not sure what my body fat % is,,2 years ago it was 18% but right now im weighing the about the same and im WAYYY stronger so that means it HAD to go down correct? BUT ANYWAYS
anyone heard good results from reduction i like controlled labs products so when i saw this on sale i went for it. ive taken it like 3 days now and i think im getting a little bit firmer on my love handles but im not sure....i need to figure out my bf%,,,is there some sort of a formula to figure this out?
08-15-2008, 01:38 AM
and napalm ive been told is good stuff but im thinking its something you use when you have a lower bf%,,,so what im asking is 15% too high to get results from napalm or no?

JMO of course, but based on your measurements you're likely to lose plenty with moderate cardio, actual lifting, a really clean diet (i.e. LOGGED DAILY) and lots and lots of water. Not knocking Napalm, but you sound like you've got some easy weight loss & muscle gain waiting for you if you just give it 6-8 weeks of real effort.
And a fat burner will go a long way to jack your base metabolism. I've tried several (VPX Meltdown, Xyience, Hydroxycut) but the one that seems to work best for me is Biotest HotRox. I'm not a Biotest fanboy by any means, but HotRox works well for me (although I do notice a decrease in effect after 2-3 weeks).
I had tried to make gains for years, but never had much success until I really looked at my diet. It was **** - I ate like a 14 year old girl, and had a body like one because of it. Water and Fiber are keys! You should be getting well over a gallon a day.
My measurements nearly matched yours a year ago (a little bigger throughout my trunk, smaller in the hips), and I dropped 35#, and then gained 18# of muscle. I'm a lot taller (6'3") but my 12" biceps are now 16"..... I started with a 3 day/week "total body training" routine that really focused on core/large muscle groups, I now am doing 4-day splits with slightly more focus, but still lots of core/big muscle movement stuff. Cardio alone is OK but will only take you so far, and done correctly lifting is _plenty_ aerobic.

You can get results from Napalm at a higher bodyfat percentage, it's just harder to see the results.
Going from 20% to 18% probably won't be quite as visible on your abs as 10% to 8%.

Thanks for all the input guys.
I already got a bottle of Napalm - the stuff is pretty cheap so I'm going to give it a try anyways. The way I figure it, fat is fat, whether it's part of 20% bf or whether it's the last few % you're trying to get rid of. Why does Napalm work on one but not the other? Maybe someone can explain this to me.
My diet is pretty good, getting plenty of protein, eating almost no simple carbs (trying to stick with the Ezekiel stuff). My metabolism is plenty high (I'm hypothyroidic and take T3, so my T3 is now at the highest limit of normal).
I want to lose a bunch of BF to see if I can get my cholesterol down. Doc says it's genetic and there's nothing I can do about it, wants to put me on Lipitor in a few years. I want to get rid of the fat and see what my numbers are.
I'm not expecting a 6 pack from the Napalm. But I have dropped 15 lbs before and haven't seen too much of a difference in my stomach area, I lose the fat elsewhere. We'll see what sort of a boost Napalm will give me.
The cardio is all in addition to my lifting routine. I'm doing 3 days a week, full body. I have weak abs and scoliosis so I can't do any big compound movements yet.

What do you think of Green Mag? It taste awesome if you mix it with Purple Wraath and/or white flood. That kind of mix is sic pre cardio.

Whoops, sorry man, missed your question.
You should concentrate on one area at a time on your body. Your abs, for example. So apply no more than three pumps at a time on your abs. 10-12 hours later, repeat.
Now, once you get your abs where you want them, then you can move on to the next area of your body.
So in other words, no more than three pumps total at a time.

Yeah, it will.
Plus, you're probably sweating a good deal of it off when you're doing cardio.
Cardio --> Shower --> Napalm

No noticeable difference yet, but it's only been 4 days! I have dropped a few pounds - I'm down to 182 from 185 or 186. I've been keeping up the morning cardio and keeping my cals down.
Today's upper body workout:
3x6 dumbbell flat bench - 55 lbs
3x7 assisted pullups (70 lbs of help)
3x8 side cable lateral - 10 lbs
3x8 single arm cable flys - 15 lbs
3x8 dumbbell curl - 25 lbs
3x8 behind the head tricep extensions - 45 lbs

I'd recommend weekly measurements, on the same day, first thing in the moring on an empty stomach, BTW.

From my experience, I usually did 3-4 pumps, and spread it all over my abs and olbiques. Dried pretty quickly too, and didn't feel too saturated.

Rosie is butting in real quick...
As for "figuring out your BF%", go and get a 6-8 site skinfold test done (scales that tell you your BF% are WAY out, and completely UNreliable!) There are equations for calculating BF%, yes...
If you're looking to lose BF, I would recommend that you manipulate your diet and training FIRST, to get to down to at least 10% BF, and then, if you still want to, think about adding in a fat-burner AFTER that.
