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.

    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"

    this is textbook results of Anabolic Pump - it will only improve

    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

    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

    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

    Congrats on the lifts! That's awesome. Keep proving those guys wrong.

    I tend to be the opposite in the gym when I see women with relatively heavy weight. I get excited for them.

    Awesome job, lady! And yeah, next time you get those looks, you'll probably notice that they're only doing that because THEY can barely do that weight! (I laugh at most of the guys in the gym who think they're so tough, because the 'little girl' works harder and heavier than 99% of them!) Keep up the good work!

    Maybe I should go and train in your gym, Irish
    ...on a second thought, "proving people wrong" can be a great motivational boost, not to mention the amusement factor

    In fact, both of these guys were using 33lb dumbells, I asked them "how much longer to go?" and the reply was "2 more sets"....And I thought, "stuff that, I ain't gonna sit around and wait, I'll go and get me some 38lb's".....Ahahaha, you should have seen their faces

    Even Alpha-FE-Males need their rest - looks like you respond well to the products DragonFly - don't be shy about pushing up that carb intake on AP.

    Agreed. If you feel you need to up the carbs, then go for it.

    As your body become accustomed to AP use, you will need to up the carb intake (slightly of course). Keep an eye on your body composition and you will be fine.

    Great work so far maam!

    Yeah. I get the same responses. Besides, it's always good to push yourself, go up that extra weight, surprise yourself (I know I did, when I thought that perhaps it might have been too hard, and you find that it's actually easy, and then you smile, and it makes a crappy session better!) It's all about getting better. Anyways, enjoy your day off

    I completely agree about pushing yourself. Especially on the bigger lifts like squat, bench, and deadlift. I always seem to be able to do more than I think. If I feel I've done my 3-rep max, I add another 10lbs or 15lbs, and I usually hit three reps again. I love those days in the gym!

    I've already done so ! I'm EATING CARBS AS IF THERE WAS NO TOMORROW !

    Seriously, 1st week:
    2AP: 3 x 30-40g/day (cardio/rest days)
    2AP: 4 x 30-40g/day (weight training)

    2nd week:
    3AP: 3 x 50-60g/day (cardio/rest days)
    3AP: 4 x 50-60g/day (weight training)
    I haven't gone through as much bread and oats in 3 years as I did in this last two weeks !!!!

    * 3 weeks prior to the stack, my diet was similar to week 1 in terms of carb consumption, except that I was consuming increased carbs ~120g/day, only on weight training days.
    On non-weight training days : carbs < 50g/day.

    * At the end of those 3 weeks I could barely see my abs
    and there was no significant increase in strenght :

    Prior to that, I was maintaining my definition by following a semi-keto diet with >50g carbs/day with very rare refeads (such as: an 8hr biking race, )

    * The reason why I went on an increased crab diet prior running the AP/Recreate/PowerFULL stack is to get a better evaluation of its effectiveness.

    Basically, instead of "adding supplements and changing diet", I opted for "adding supplements to the existing diet". This way any results would likely be due to addition of supplements and not due to a change in diet.

    * RESULTS: Adding AP/Recreate/PowerFULL allowed me to increase carbs even further,
    from 90-120/day to ~200-240g/day with no significant icrease in BF% :chick:

    * End of week 2, I am as cut as I was on my semi-keto diet of
    <50g carbs/day and I broke PRs in DEADS, BENCH and BI CURLS
    :clean:


    I sound like a USPLabs rep

    Side note: squats and powercleans increased as well as some other exercises, but I'm not here to write in epic proportions

    Think it is soon time to add P-slin into the equation
    ....and also, time to post some pics, just in case you all started thinking that I'M SOOO FULL OF $HIT

    Bodybuilding is all about getting BETTER, and you don't get better if you don't push yourself. I lift as hard and as heavy as I can EVERY session (no 'easy' sessions for Rosie, unless my body FORCES me to go down in weight!) The ONLY exceptions ARE Legs' exercises; I don't lift anywhere near my 1RM, simply because lifting heavy INcreases the muscle mass in my legs and glutes so fast that it's not funny, and they are the areas where I wouldn't mind having LESS muscle!

    yeah girl - now we're talking! I love that P-Slin.

    I guess you need to decide how you're going to dose it.

    ....and also, time to post some pics, just in case you all started thinking that I'M SOOO FULL OF $HIT
