Bending the Spoon. Enter the "Shred" Matrix...
Shred Matrix is a Complete Fat Loss System with the purpose of:
>Eliminating Sugar and Sweet Cravings
>Increasing Lean Muscle Tissue
>Reducing the Absorption of Sugar
and Bad Carbohydrates
For more information on Shred Matrix, click the link below:
Musclepharm: Shred - Multi Level Fat Loss System
Body Weight: ~160 lb
Body Fat: 18-19%
My goal is to get down to 15-16% BF, and at the same time gain and maintain strength. While I am at 15-16% BF, I would like to be capable of squatting 165-175 lb for 6 reps. I think this is a realistic goal, and I believe that MP's Shred Matrix is going to help me out a lot over the next month or so with my fat-loss.
The past few weeks I have been weight lifting twice a day, 4 days a week and have noticed a significant gain in strength. I don't think that this specific workout best targets weight loss though, so, with the help of my husband, I will be changing it up a little.
BCAA's, Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Anobolic Innovation's "Essentials", Fish Oil, Multi, Juice Plus (on occasion) and lastly IBE's X-Dream, which I am also logging.

Once again I'm inininininini so you may googogogogogogogo.
You look great, BW! I don't think you've ever posted a back photo before. You've really got some great muscle development.

Thank you. I realized that while I was taking X-force I lost fat on my lower back and butt area, but didn't have any pictures to show that loss- it was my first log. I decided to fix that in this one. Make some improvements.
Great to have you, Irish!
And I'm glad that you find it interesting, D3vilDog.

I am going to be taking my first dose tomorrow. I will start with one pack, and take two if I find it necessary.
Any suggestions that you all might have are absolutely welcome, any advice is appreciated.
I will also be posting my workout up tomorrow, when I get back from the gym.
I'm lookin' forward to this!

So far I am very close to hitting my squatting goal of 175 lb, but I've got a way's to go with the fat loss.
The last few weeks I have gained a TON of strength and muscle, but my fat loss has come to a stop, it seems.
But that's ok, I've got Matrix now to fix that part, and I can Deadlift 200lb, so I think I'm doing alright.

My advice to you would be to make sure you drink a good amount of water while using the Shred. Also if you go to two packs a day try a 5 on 2 off schedule with the dosing, it will help you from building up a tolerance to the 5HTP and the Synepherine. If you need anything along the way you know you can shot me a PM.

In, and one good lolcat deserves another. I figure that since you're cutting with shred matrix this one would be appropriate

Shred Matrix: Day 1
I took my first dose of Shred Matrix this morning at 7:55, along with my breakfast. I left for the gym right away, and began lifting at 8:30. At about 8:35 I could really feel Shred kicking in. My temperature rose, I began sweating up a storm, and I felt somewhat nauseous. I also felt a small burst of energy while I was lifting.
I tried to drink a ton of water, because I know that SM will make you somewhat sick if you don't. So before taking the Shred Matrix pack I downed a liter, and while I was in the gym I drank 2- 3 liters. I also think that my peri- workout shake contributed a little to the nausea. Perhaps even the two combined while lifting.
Right now I am feeling kind of sleepy. I might lay down and take a nap this afternoon to recharge. I don't think that I will take a second pack today, since it is my first time trying this product out. I'll keep you updated today as to how I feel in regards to Shred.
I am going to be working out 2 times a day, 4 days a week. I am doing a total body split, so I will either be doing upper or lower in the morning, and the other in the evening. For example, this morning I did lower body, so tonight I will do upper body.
Here is what I did this morning for my workout:
BB Squats (135lb)
BB Lunges (115lb)
Leg Extensions (100lb)
Seated Calf Raises (115lb)
I wish that I had increased the weight for my squats. I could have done at least 10 lb more. I just feel like my legs could have been worked a little harder. Something to improve next time.
After I'm done with my workout tonight, I will post it up.
12-15-2008, 01:52 PM
That sounds like a great split you've got going, BW! I can't wait to start the new one that Resolve helped me with. Tomorroowwww!!!
12-15-2008, 01:58 PM
12-15-2008, 02:30 PM
Resolve put my entire workout together. He's better at it than I am, so I just give the job to him, and throw out suggestions. It certainly works out well!
12-15-2008, 02:42 PM
For BW, well be tweaking things a bit as we go - finding what suits her best. Starting off with 150g CHO on lifting days, which should be fine for 2/days. It's a whole different ball-game than lower frequency...
12-15-2008, 02:52 PM
How tall are you? For being close to 160 you seem pretty lean.
I personally feel that your body looks perfect. I am biased, however, to the smoother lean bodies of women rather than women who are "cut." I hope you understand what I mean and that I didn't word it in an offensive way.
Goodluck, I will follow along and have my girl follow along too. Maybe you can hype her up!

2 workouts a day will def speed up the metabolism.

Subbed because I am going to run this in Feb/Mar probably...
12-15-2008, 04:23 PM
Any time that a guy tells me that I look "perfect", I'll take it! Ha, and I'll like it too! Thanks!
Probably when I take 2 packs a day of SM I'll feel the appetite suppressant kick in.

I took a nap from 1-2pm this afternoon. It really helped me re-charge for my second workout. It seemed like after about 12pm the energy of Shred Matrix had worn off, and all of its noticeable affects. I think I might take 2 packs tomorrow, if you all don't think that 2 would be too much, too soon. Let me know what you think.
DB Flat Bench Press (35 lb DB's)
Supersetted w/ DB Bent Rows (30 lb DB)
DB Incline Curls (20 lb DB)
Supersetted w/ Cable Tricep Extensions (50lb)
12 minutes of Stair Master.
I just got back from the gym- my workout was intense and I am beat.
I was happy with my bench. It felt a bit lighter than I expected, which means that I am getting stronger. Look forward to upping that weight next time.
Bent Rows were killer when supersetted with the bench. Man, my back and arms are hurting right now!
Curls sucked. I could barely do 20 lb DB's. First of all my arms were already shot, and that last superset pushed them over the edge. I had a huge pump while doing the curls and extensions- my arms were HUGE! I am having a hard time deciding whether I really like the size of them, or whether I find them too bulky. It doesn't really matter, I suppose, since I'm gonna' be losing fat which 'll make 'em look smaller either way.
12-15-2008, 09:55 PM
More Notes: Today I didn't notice less sugar or carb cravings. Perhaps this is something that will come along with taking two packs, as well as the appetite suppressant for me.
12-16-2008, 01:55 AM
DB Incline Curls always provide some hurtin for me. In a good way.
