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
What can I say, I'm only human

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.

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!

Seriously, 1st week:
2AP: 3 x 30-40g/day (cardio/rest days)
2AP: 4 x 30-40g/day (weight training)
3AP: 3 x 50-60g/day (cardio/rest days)I haven't gone through as much bread and oats in 3 years as I did in this last two weeks !!!!
3AP: 4 x 50-60g/day (weight training)
* 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

It's my week off, and you are all making me want to train SOOOO bad. This only throws fuel in the fire for when I start Part 2 of my log on Thursday.

yeah girl - now we're talking! I love that P-Slin.Think it is soon time to add P-slin into the equation
Bring. It. On.
I guess you need to decide how you're going to dose it.
lol - Im sure everyone's keen to see your progress.....and also, time to post some pics, just in case you all started thinking that I'M SOOO FULL OF $HIT

Make sure to sub to my new log guys. I'd really like to continue, and even beef up, the support that you all have been giving me in my last log. It helps a great deal.

Congrats on increasing those lifts. I bet you could even do more. I know on Leg Extensions and Squats I can always suprise myself.
09-21-2008, 09:15 PM
Thanks Irish, true, I could have done more (I actually put that note in my gym log book- no need to be foolin' around with "endless" pre-warm ups !!!)
I did so many sets it was ridiculous, I kept adding the plates thinking - but surely this SHOULD be hard....instead it was
At least next time, I know where to go from !

I need to take a picture of me sleeping like you did for yourself. Instead of typing out "Rest Day" just post a picture instead. Nuf ced.

DAY15 was baaaaaad! I could barely squat down to the toilet without gritting my teeth
DAY16, getting there, canít believe remnants of DOMS are still hanging around, three days after the session
Then again, I never broke a PRs on :squat: by 22lb, usually it is more around a 5 pound mark.
Didnít feel like having ANOTHER rest day so I decided to hit the gym for a shoulder/back workout (more upper back stuff, no point doing deadlifts if legs and CNS have BARELY recovered.
DAY 16-1st session since the stack where I started feeling mental fatigue and a slight lack of drive.
No surprise there, last two weeks have been ABNORMALLY INTENSE, plus, both DAY14&15 WERE NOT used for complete REST, still did some HIIT cardio, which was WROOONG !!!! OVERTRAINING !!!!
Rest means rest, not bashing yourself with a cardio session !!!!!
Anyways, the "crappy session" on day 16 was rescued by a PR in dumbbell shoulder press Ė up by 11lb !!!!!
I actually thought I was lifting the same weight as before the stack, it is not until later, when I went back through my log book, that I realized I broke the PR!
Shoulders are definitely getting bigger, shame I don't have some "before" pics !

Very impressive shape and cuts in your upper back.
Keep pushing through it, carb up and get back to it!!!!!
