    Breaking PBs - great stuff DF!

    I see no reason why females (Alpha Fe-Males no less) should not be taking natural test boosters either.

    But Im thinking of a NEW product that is not a test booster per se, that to my knowledge hasn't been used by females....

    Once your body has become accustomed to AP, you may wish to try taking it pre fasted cardio - there is some synergies there which can ellicit greater fat-burning potential.

    However, you need to ensure your body can handle at least 45 minutes (in my opinion - you may wish to check with one of the reps) between dosage and carb consumption without going hypo.

  6. a bit late with the updates...

    DAY 6


    9AM (yeah, ok, shush everyone, I know I was a lazy a$$ to get out of bed but it was the weekend so give me a break )

    Started off with 2Recreate and without PwFULL, had a FIRM intention to do a VERY SHORT HIIT session, but boy I was WRONG …within 10min of dosing I was switched on HIT instead: High Intensity, Intervals. Sprinted for 25 min, felt like I could have gone for longer but wanted to spare my knees ‘cause they are not used to 3 HIIT running sessions/week (and this was the third one).

    Afternoon was supposed to be used for rest but I promised to teach a friend how to do deadlifts .

    Hit the gym at 3pm but my friend wasn’t there so I though, I should play with weights a bit just for fun (nothing to hard, this is MEANT TO BE A REST DAY, DAMN IT!!!). WRONG AGAIN !

    I was still running HIGH from the morning dose and so before I knew it I was doing a gruelling superset : pyramid cable bicep curl + pyramid cable tricep pulldown (didn’t go for deads ‘cause I’ve already done them this week, see day 2). What makes this gruelling is the PYRAMID system, anyone who has tried it before knows what I’m talking about .

    Usually I do only one superset on these and then take 5 min to recover before I’m able to hold a pen and take notes, haha !! Well, after doing the first pyramid superset I thought: one is like none, so I went on and did another! I even bumped the weights up cause I felt my arms could take some further damage .

    There was still no sign of my friend and at this point I thought: hope he doesn’t come at all cause I want to keep going

    My wish was granted, total time in the gym 1hr. I popped 1Recreate/1PwFULL in the middle of the workout and when it was over, I still had some steam left in me so I went for a 20min spin on my bike. Felt great, pumped and NOT EXHAUSTED AT ALL!

  7. DAY 7

    Rest day .

    Slept only 5hrs after a night out (no drinking, alcohol and me agree NOT), woke up mildly cranky, took 1 Recreate ONLY and went for a 20min ride to “organize my thoughts for the day”.

    I was pleasantly surprised from a single dose of Recreate, it kicked in just right (I didn’t feel like I was running on illegal substances ), I didn’t have the urge to do ANY form of HIT, but I didn’t have the urge to call it quits and crawl back into bed either. Took 1 more Recreate in the afternoon. Mood improved, I was VERY HAPPY and RELAXED….prior this stack, me + 5 hrs of sleep =

    ...

    At the moment, I am ~120lb and 13-15% BF. Being a female I find it hard to put on muscle (that is relatively speaking, I’m certainly not an ectomorph woman). Most of my workouts involve compound movements, deads, squats, chins, powercleans, etc (max dead 165lb, 6reps). I see guys in the gym all the time, lifting less then I do in terms of their bodyweight and yet they grow like weeds even with bad form!

    I seem to be a Carb II Reactive individual (damn it!!!), I do gain some minute amount of muscle when I increase carbs but 99% excess of this goes straight into my butt (haha! I feel like the whole 13-15% of my fat is there

    ….which brings me to my mission “impossible” : lean bulk .... I bet nobody guessed that one!

    ...
    Eating more definitely will help you gain muscle (I know it works for me, 4000+ cal/day yes, no ****). As for carbs, they're NOT the important thing in gaining muscle mass; PROTEIN IS! And yes, for a female gaininig muscle IS a lot harder than for males, simply because we do not have the testosterone levels that they do (even if we manage to INcrease them, and I'm not talking steroids). However, realtively (and you'll get a kick out of this), females tend to be stronger and more powerfull than males. Also, females find it a lot easier than males to gain muscle in their LOWER body...As for a 'lean bulk', you DO have to be very careful with your diet here (diet is the KEY!). You WILL gain SOME fat, yes, but it can be controlled. As for supplements, I found that NeoVar and IGF-2 did this exceptionally well for me (very similar to the products that you are using)...So, good luck, lady.

    Log continues to look good. Very thorough.

    Thanks, I'll give it a go JKP, I think I could handle 45 min but we'll see, the fun of experimenting...

    Agree, protein is important however, thus far I've been following a keto-like diet with very little carbs. My protein intake was (and still is) around 2g per pound of muscle if not more (more=overkill). I also tended to go "stupid" on fats. While this type of dieting wasn't bad for my body type, I found myself stuck in a rut. Workout intensity went down and increasing carbs seemed to help in that respect...not without the price of accumulating too much "dirt" though.

    I started a carb-feeding cycle about a month ago and persisted despite getting frustrated over the acquired soft-look. For the last week, due to the addition of AP, I increased carbs even more. Workouts have been great so far and the soft-look is not getting any worse If anything, it is improving, I can actually notice some definition in my upper thighs for a change

    Also, there are no bloating or sleepiness-issues following a carb meal. This was not a case before a stack. Give me some porridge in the morning and an hour later I'm ready to join the "dead"

  15. DAY 8

    So far, on weight training days (afternoon workouts) I’ve experimented with:

    *2Recreate/1PwFULL morning
    1Recreate /2PwFULL afternoon (prior workout)

    *2Recreate morning
    1Recreate/2PwFULL afternoon

    *1Recreate/1PwFULL morning
    2Recreate/1PwFULL afternoon

    And the winner is ….

    *2Recreate morning
    1Recreate/2PwFULL afternoon


    GENERAL NOTES:

    RECREATE LITERALLY RECREATES YOU. I’m not an “early morning” person and I’ll find any possible excuse to avoid a scheduled morning HIIT cardio (the weather is too hot, the weather is too cold, back is stiff …bull$hit-it is stiff every morning, ...I’m not an early morning person ).

    With Recreate, I crave HIIT as badly as ketogenics crave their weekend carb-refeeds izza::donut::burg:

    * Morning doses (~8:30AM)-always kick in faster, within 10min (increased -alertness, sweating, positive aggression, focus, an overwhelming rush of energy and happiness).

    The effects are VERY INTENSE AND LONG LASTING (especially with a double dose of Recreate, come 2PM and the heat is still on!)

    * Afternoon doses (~5PM)-EVEN WITH 2 Recreate the effect is not as intense as when the same dose is taken in the morning, also, takes ~20min to kick in
    Importantly, when dosing Recreate in 2/1 (morning/afternoon) scheme, appetite suppression is significant throughout the day as opposed to 1/2 (morning/afternoon) – not much at all

    CONCLUSION: RECREATE SEEMS TO WORK BEST ON EMPTY STOMACH
    To elaborate this further: afternoon dose is taken 3hrs after lunch and 1hr after a small protein shake (gastric emptying not 100% completed); morning dose is taken after >8hr overnight fast

  16. Glad to see you've got the dosing down!

    I also take in more protein than the norm: >500g/day on workout days! (Roughly 3x my bw!)

    And I have to know... What does kangaroo taste like? (Please don't say chicken! LOL!)

    Just querying WHY you would be wanting to do low carbs when you are a MTBer? I used to be a cyclist, and trust me, I know WHAT cycling and MTB takes out of you and how hard ad long you train; any carbs you ate would most definitely NOT be 'gained as fat', but be used for energy. And believe me, you are already at the BF% of an elite female athlete!

    And carbs don't make you look soft. Yes, for every gram of carbs you store 3g of water (intracellular, though), but it would make you appear HARDER, if anything.

    Anyways, I won't argue this point. Everyone's body works differently in some respects, and if you feel that this is your best way, then by all means, do it.

    Seems you need to decide whether you want to be a MTBer or a figure competitor, since the training required for each is at OPPOSITE ends of the extreme.

    Yeah, I'll keep Recreate at 3 pills a day on weight training days (2/1; morning/arvo; 4 x week), but I will only take 2 pills on non-weight training days (1/1; morning/arvo). All that extra stimulus from 3 pills is unecessary if one's intention is to rest!

    I also take in more protein than the norm: >500g/day on workout days! (Roughly 3x my bw!)
    HAHA, awesome, that makes me feel less ; besides, judging from your avatar, it seems to be working QUITE well

    And I have to know... What does kangaroo taste like? (Please don't say chicken! LOL!)
    HELL NO, the taste is rather unique and from speaking with other people, it is either a hit or a miss, you'll either love it or you'll hate it. It has a very intense smell that some people dislike. I love it though (the taste, smell doesn't bother me much and once the meat is cooked, it is not noticeable), I have never gone back to beef since I've started eating 'roo.
    Jakellpet's log has some tips on how to cook it.

    You are absolutely right, and when I used to ride 4-5x/week (2-3hrs each session), my diet was something like 60% carbs, 20%fat and 20% protein (and I was never fat)

    However, since I started weight training, I cut down on mountainbiking, because building muscle is hard enough as it is. Now-days, I barely do 1 ride every 1-2 weeks and it is never over 2hrs. I do a couple of endurance events per year (this year I did two 8hr races and a 60km race), but I do no specific training for them (other than a MASSIVE carb refead )

    Interestingly, even without cycling-specific training, this year had been the best in terms of racing placements (think it is because weight-training unleashed toughness that I never thought I had in me, I see mountainbiking as a painless fun now, as opposed to weight training-painful fun ). I came 1st and 2nd in the 8hr events and 2nd in the 60km race. During my last 8hr event I scoffed down 30 dried bananas…and it was a winner


    Seems you need to decide whether you want to be a MTBer or a figure competitor, since the training required for each is at OPPOSITE ends of the extreme.
    Right again, I've been racing for 5 years, time to try something different, if anything I may use an 8hr event as a pre-contest cut, haha !

    That will be because you probably have gained strength (and power) withOUT a lot of muscle mass WITH it (a great bonus for an endurance athlete. And YES, it CAN be done, regardless of the people who will tell you otherwise).

    Sounds great. I no longer race, and my passion is in this lifestyle, and I wouldn't go back

  21. DAY 9

    Woken up by the lawn mower, VERY ANGRY !!!

    It took a BIT of willpower to restrain myself from out at my neighbour to “get f.cked” .

    Took 2 Recreate and cheered up. Still, by mid afternoon, premature awakening took its toll and I was as motivated to hit the gym as I was to get out of bed at 6AM Nevertheless, I forced myself to go, if nothing else than out of curiosity to see whether 1Recreate/1PwFULL would bring the alpha-FEMALE attitude back. In all honesty, I wasn’t expecting much…

    Started my workout with some core-warmup and then straight to deads (what better way to put the supps to test )

    A side note: Like I said, my PR on deads is 165lb 6 reps, however, that was more than 3 months ago, since then I’ve regressed quite a bit. Of late, at 148.5lb I’m already in serious trouble and at 154 I’m REALLY PUSHING THE LIMITS.

    The numbers speak for themselves:

    DEAD workout :

    PRIOR TO Recreate/PwFULL/AP
    POST Recreate/PwFULL/AP

    set 1. 132lb: 8 reps
    set 1. 132lb: 8

    set 2. 143lb: 6
    set 2. 148lb: 6 well that was EASY !!!

    set 3. 154lb: 5
    set 3. 159.5lb: 5 that was worth the effort, great form*


    set 4. 165lb: 1 - horrible form, not even under a threat of death could I have squeezed another rep

    set 4. 165lb dropset 154lb: 4,3 - great form*

    SET 5!!!!! 165lb dropset 154lb dropset 143lb: 3,3,4 - great form*

    * actually had someone watching me for the sake of getting an unbiased opinion

  22. Apparently I'm nine days late; however, subbed.

  23. I see a PR in the not-so-distant future!

    DAY 11

    NEW PRs in Bench Press, Chest Dumbell Press & Bicep Cable Curl :bb3:


    Last week's bench:
    3 sets, 88lb, reps to failure 6/5/5

    Today's:
    set 1. 88lb, reps to failure 8
    set 2. 93.5lb.................5/5
    set 3. 98lb ....................2,
    (yes I know that was cocky of me, but I couldn't help myself, I had to try )

    set 4. 93.5lb .................8
    (last 3 assisted, my favourite spotter appeared, luckily, because the bar wasn't going anywhere and I was determined not to let it go )

    Chest Dumbell Press, up by 11lb
    (when I grabbed a pair of 38.5lb dumbells, I got a "you- are- just- a- girl, -put -'em- back- before- you- hurt- yourself " look from a couple of guys
    .... I thought....

    Bicep Cable Curl, up by 8.8lb

  30. Congrats on the PR's!!!

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to dragonfly again.
