    "Stuff I Take" Log - Ozarkabrand :)


    I just want to be able to log something. So, here goes..

    Current Staple Supplementation -

    • Beta Alanine
    • Sesamin
    • Multi. Vitamin
    • Omega 3s
    • Vit. D
    • Vit. C
    • Garlic


    New and Special Things -
    • Lean Fx
    • Reversitol
    • Sesamin


    Current Diet -

    Starting up the Anabolic Diet as of tonight. I've got the eBook, and I've used this diet before. I feel that at this point, it could really be the extra little kick I need to shed off those last few pounds of body fat.

    Training Routine -
    It's time for a change . I will be loosely following this template (meaning that the exercises will probably be changing, body parts worked I plan on keeping the same), while implementing a few DC and Waterbury principles:
    Day 1 -
    • Barbell Bench
    • DBell Incline
    • Deadlift (depending on lingering back issues)
    • Inverted Rows
    • Unilateral Cable Rows
    • Preacher Curls
    • Seated Dbell Curls

    Day 2 -
    • Close-grip Bench
    • Skull Crushers
    • Unilateral Arnold Press
    • Front Raises
    • Upright Rows
    • Dbell Shrugs
    • Forearm Work

    Day 3 -
    • Back Squat
    • Walking Lunges
    • Glute-Ham Raises
    • Ball Leg Curls
    • Standing Calve Raises
    • Seated Calve Raises
    • * two days of rest follow day 3, as opposed to one day of rest following each, day 1 and day 2


    Tomorrow will be my first day on Lean Fx, and my first day following the above template, and not to mention delving into the Anabolic Diet. Needless to say, I'm excited!

    Part of this is that I've got a crap-load of WMS and Dextrose laying around.. the other part is that I'm attempting to blunt the rise in cortisol associated with weight training, and increase protein synthesis overall (thank you Dr. John Ivy, lol).

    It just seems like 50g of high GI carbs are going to pull you out of ketosis and would be better saved for your refeed. But either way I'm intereseted in how it goes.

    Noted. However, I will be using PSLIN along with that shake.

    edit: NVM, only 50 carbs maximum on training days, with 30 from an intra/post workout shake.

    3 Lean Fx, 3 swigs o' sesamin (approx 8ml total), 10g BA, 7g CrM, 500mg PSLIN

    Good workout today dudes, felt pretty nice.
    Barbell Bench - 215, 3 sets DC style
    Dumbell Incline - 70s, 3 sets DC
    Inverted Rows - BW+25, 3 sets DC
    Incline Db Rows - 50s, 3 sets DC
    Preacher Curls - 55, 3 sets DC
    Seated DB Curls - 32.5s, 3 sets DC
    Abs on the floor

    50g total carbs for today. I'm sitting at about 180lbs at the moment, mostly due to food I'm sure. I'll check in the morning, I predict around 175. BF is around 12-14%.

    So, my BP is still pretty high, for any who followed along my last cycle. It was fine, and then I started to include creatine, and things went up up up. So, I'm going to completely drop the creatine in hopes that this is what has been the true cause for the increase in blood pressure. Just fyi .

    Good luck on the Anabolic Diet man. I respond very favorably to it, but it's just too damn hard for me to follow.

    Thanks! It's going to be difficult for a little while, that's for sure.. I'm low on funds so my food choices at the moment aren't the most tasty, but, they're Anabolic Diet certified.

    Small Update:

    I'm 177lbs as of this morning.. Not too shabby considering I've been off the juice for over a week.

    I was able to stay more strict with my diet when I didn't mess with carb-cycling too. I tried TKD a few months ago. My brain just couldn't handle it. I was fine on CKD though, oddly enough.

    Are you using pslin during your refeeds? I have a bottle of LGs Slin and was trying to figure out how I could utilize it efficiently with AD.

    I probably will, yes. With slin, I'd assume just follow label directions and use it before every carb containing refeed meal.

    i like the list of supps you are on. my list of current supps looks very similar yours.
    i also dropped creatine for the same reason.

    You guys got me thinking... I dropped Vasocharge due to BP, but am still using about 3g of creatine in my shakes. Maybe I should drop that as well? Did you both really notice a considerable difference?

    Agreed, they're pretty staple staples

    I thought I mentioned I think Ozarka should add ZMA & Vit. D (Unless you're a lucky southerner). Green Tea + Grape Seed Extract I like for Anti-Oxidants, but doesn't have to be a staple.

    ha. Sorry! I mean that I do the workout using the DC method.. So, about 8 reps the first set all out, rest 30 seconds, completely as many reps as possible w/out the lift slowing significantly, rest 30 seconds, and do as many as I can one last time.

    I wasn't real sure what to call it.. Basically, you've got a barbell behind your back, gripping it w/ your palms facing away from you, and you proceed to flex your forearms to pull the weight up w/ the point of flexion being your wrist.

    I prob should have listed that, but I do supplement w/ 3000 i.u. of Vit. D daily. Also, I take Primaforce ZMA prior to bed, 'bout to run out of that though.

    I'd like to try out the Grape Seed Extract, specifically for the possible benefits to my blood pressure.

    I'm trying to give it a few days for all the possible creatine related fluid retention to subside before I take my BP again.. I don't wanna be let down, lol.

    I'll prob check it out tonight though. I'll let you fellows know what happens!

    The problem is my refeeds are something like 15 meals. So I'd use my whole 60 cap bottle in 1 refeed. I was thinking of possibly using it before my last carb meal or low dose before my first low-carb meal to quickly induce ketosis, IDK.

    Not sure what to tell you man! Good luck either way. Maybe invest in some Na-RALA instead of the slin.

    • Glute-hams - BW DC
    • Ball leg curls - BW DC
    • Standing calves - 180 DC
    • Seated calves - 3 plates DC

    Well then you're staples are in order

    Repeat BP tests to check on the drop, but that's good news.

    Pretty much an off day today, however, I plan to do a bit of cardio here in the next 30 minutes or so. I'm fluctuating between 176 and 178 pounds.. Which is awesome. I've been off cycle for nearly 2 weeks and have maintained weight while leaning out.. How cool is that? I expected to lose a pretty large amount of water and glycogen weight due to the nature of my diet, but, I'm still in the high 170s, so IDK. I'll try and get some pictures up at the end of this week, no promises though since my computer is in the dumps and I'm having to use my buddy's comps.

    I'll check BP tonight after I get off of work and update you fellas on that. If I hadn't mentioned, I work at a Marble Slab.. Ironic much?!

    I still haven't checked out my BP.. but I will.. I promziz.

    Now, I'm debating whether or not I should skip my 2nd rest day and just go ahead and hit the gym today. I feel great, I feel energized.. and I just plain want to get in there.. I did legs Wednesday, pretty brutal too.. Today is straight upper body: chest, back, and biceps.. You guys think I can go for it or should I really get in that extra day of rest?

    I still haven't checked out my BP.. but I will.. I promziz.

    Now, I'm debating whether or not I should skip my 2nd rest day and just go ahead and hit the gym today. I feel great, I feel energized.. and I just plain want to get in there.. I did legs Wednesday, pretty brutal too.. Today is straight upper body: chest, back, and biceps.. You guys think I can go for it or should I really get in that extra day of rest?
    you already skipped one day buddy,take the day off man,let your body recover!

    Honestly though, I feel pretty recovered.. Slight soreness in my hamstrings, but I'm not doing legs today.. so it shouldn't be a big deal..

    Thanks for the input though slickster!

    Great day in the gym today. I pretty much wrecked it. Got 10 mins of HIIT in afterward as well.

    I need to get those picks up! Hopefully tomorrow.. I'll try anyway.
