    Continuing My Fat-Loss Journey With...




    I recently won REDuction in a Controlled Labs promo, and decided that I would log my progress! Keeping a log on AM is just so much fun, and the accountability is great. Please feel free to join in!

    Controlled Labs makes some great products that have become staples in my supplementation. I rarely hit the gym without my Purple Wraath and Glycergrow. I've heard that REDuction is a very effective fat burner, and very much look forward to seeing what results it provides me.


    Statistics:


    BF: ~17%
    Height: 5'9
    Weight: 158 lb
    Body type: Mesomorph

    Goal:


    Get down to 15-16% BF while gaining muscle and strength.

    Supplementation:


    Purple Wraath
    Glycergrow
    AI Essentials
    Vitamin C
    Dextrose and Maltodextrin (Intra-workout)
    Assault
    Whey Protein

    Current PRs:

    Deadlifts: 230lb for 3 reps
    Squat: 175 lb for 6 reps
    DB Bench Press: 55 lb DBs for 3


    I will begin taking REDuction on Monday, when my first workout of the week is.

    In. I'm interested how this works for you. CL is a great company, so I have high hopes. I wanted to stack this with a few other things.

    I bought a bottle during the incredible New Years sale. I have not cracked it open yet though so I am interested in your progress with it. Good luck!

    Haha. I didn't even pay attention to the user name. Now after seeing the pics I am definately in. j/k

    On a serious note...you are starting out pretty trim so this should be a good run for you. I plan on adding DCP to my Reduction when I start it. I was planning to start REDuction/DCP next week, but I will be doing a sponsored log in the near future and hate to cut short the weight loss stack when I run that.

    Best of luck to you and do you have goals setup for what you are expecting?

    I'm just hoping to lose 1-2% BF while maintaining weight. From experience I can say that this is a very realistic goal for me. I'd like to gain strength as well. There is nothing better than to set a PR when cutting.

    Tomorrow I will be hitting up the gym, as well as Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Right now I am doing 2 or 3 difficult full body movements in every workout, with other supporting movements included. Mondays and Tuesdays are usually low reps, high sets, while it is the opposite on Thur/Fri.

    I've been fighting a cold for 3 weeks, and while my performance hasn't particularly suffered, my stamina has been very low. I've actually set PRs this past week which shows that my strength hasn't gone down. I'm hoping that working out will not hinder my recuperation.

    Good luck; however, I question the use of Dextrose and Maltodextrin (Intra-workout), if your objective is fat loss.

    I've only been using 25g of Carbs within every workout. I've found that it has helped fuel my muscles intra workout, and helped me maintain my strength as well. Thus far it hasn't impeded my fat loss at all. In 5 1/2 months I've recomped from 23% BF to 17% and pretty much maintained weight. I went from 160 to 158 lb. All of this I did with Dextrose and Malto. I'm keeping that amazing muscle fuel in my workout because I believe it has helped me recomp.

    Funny thing is, every time I have gone into the gym sick these past weeks, I've left feeling somewhat better. Last Tuesday I went in having decided that I would "take it easy" because I felt so bad. Yeah right! I ended up setting a Deadlift PR! Hmmm... I think my supps had some influence there.

    Well, before I can credit your 23%-17% I would need to know what the diet and training was like. Any sudden change can equal some great results. But if you feel it is workout for you go for it.

    I do not prefer carbs peri-workout, since it will blunt the release of growth hormone; in addition, studies have shown that 80% of glucose your body uses for training is via gluconeogenesis. I prefer BCAA's peri workout, such as Xtned, CORE ABC, or IntraBolic.

    So, if you start to plateau you might want to revisit your Dextrose and Malto approach.

    Good luck, just sharing my POV.

    Growth Hormone is primarily released during a state of unconsciousness, i.e, when you're asleep. Intra-workout GH release is not going to be enough to impact you in the way that you are hoping, especially with the inclusion of BCAA or a similar intra-workout product. Why?

    Because BCAAs are insulinotropic - they cause an increase in serum levels of insulin, which in and of itself is going to "blunt" GH release.

    Furthermore, Insulin is the most anabolic hormone and using it properly is an invaluable tool. Intra-workout release reduces cortisol expression, increases stamina and protein synthesis and decreases recovery time. Dex and Malto are good choices for intra-workout insulin release because they are fast-digesting and provide a variety of polymer lengths, which results in greater glycolysis.

    Dex and Malto on a recomp, used properly, are great. Leave GH release to when it's going to actually do something, and use insulin your benefit.

    I agree with some of what you are saying, but since this is babywifey's log, it isn't the place for debate IMO; nonetheless, great post.

    Ha, Thanks for the explanation, R.

    xjsynx: I attribute most of my fat loss progress to my diet and workout. The supps I take are only the icing on the cake. My diet is quite good. I stick with lean meats, TONS of veggies, and healthy fat (avocado, olive oil, natty PB, coconut). For breakfast I'll usually have more carbs than any other meal of the day. Usually I'll eat berries with groats and barley or something similar. All my meals are home cooked. I consume between 1900-2200 Calories a day, depending on my activity level.

    I will actually be posting up my workout today after I lift. I have several other logs that note my fat loss progress these past 5 months, if want to look at the kind of lifting routine I was on, you will find them in these logs

    X-forcing my way into smaller pants!

    Because of this post, I think I may start adding 30g of WMS to my intra-wo drink, and take it out of my PWO drink.

    I haven't been using any carbs in my post workout drink for a month now, and it has helped me lean out a lot. I've also gained a significant amount of strength! - This month I've been dipping body weight for 12 reps, 4 sets no problem, as well as 8x3 with 25 lb added to my body weight. You've been following all of my logs, so you know what kind of progress this is for me!

    Cooool. I'll give it a go, I guess...although, now that I think about...I'm getting about 20g of carbs, from both the Dextrose and WMS in my Anadraulic State...Maybe I don't need additional.

    Geez, AS has 20g CHO in it? You could probably do another 25-30g intra, but's it's your call.

    The more I've messed around with my peri-workout nutrition, the more I've found that Intra makes the biggest difference, performance wise.

    I do, however, still take Essentials+Joint, 15g EAA and Combustion pre-workout; but I consider those the "primer" for the goodness to come while I'm lifting.

    It's got 13g/scoop, and I take in 1.5 scoops intra-wo.

    Ok - well, if you're taking it Intra-workout, just adding another 5-10g WMS and maybe 10-15g BCAAs would be how I'd do it. But I'm a slut for extra BCAAs intra-workout.

    This is exactly what I've been doing, less the additional CHO intake. Seems to be working well...I rarely finish the whole thing intra-wo, though. I down about 1/3rd of it during the workout, and usually finish the jug by about 3pm, sipping it in between meals.

    I'm feeling pretty bad today. this sickness is like a cold and flu combined. I think I will do some light weight lifting, and then sit in the sauna for a while. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

    I took 2 AM REDuction pills this morning and until about 11:45 I had a nice flow of energy. I think being up and about all morning wore me out a little due to this cold, so I took a 45 minute nap. I haven't got much of an appetite, but I am now eating a bowl of home made turkey/beef soup. I slow cooked some turkey bones in a crock pot for 2 days and it has made a very delicious, rich broth. Added some veggies to that and some extra meat, this stuff is good!

    I would imagine that if the subject is pertaining to her workouts/supplements/program, that it is a perfect place for debate, especially since you are debating with her and her workout partner/husband.

    I tend to agree with Resolve and BW on the issue. Intra-workout carbs have NEVER impeded my progress in growth or BF% loss, in fact I tend to swear by them. Night-time carbs are my arch-enemy.

    Yours and mine both, my friend. When the sun starts going down, so must my carbs...

    Day 1: REDuction

    I took 2 AM pills 30 minutes before breakfast this morning. I had some steady energy for about 3 hours, but, unfortunately, my cold caught up to me and I began to feel very tired. After laying down for 45 minutes I felt much better and left for the gym. My workout was intense and exhausting.

    8x3

    Squats
    Set 1: 135
    Set 2-4: 155
    Set 5-6: 165
    Final Set: 170 (5-10 lb overall increase since last week)

    Clean and Press

    Set 1-3: 85 lb BB
    Set 4-8: 90 lb BB (5 lb decrease since last week)

    8x8
    External Rotations: 10 lb DB

    8x3
    Hammer Curls

    Set 1-5: 30 lb DBs
    Set 6-8: 32.5 lb DBs

    I did pretty well for how bad I am feeling. :/

    Thanks. I was doing 95 lbs for 7 sets last week. :/

    I forgot to mention that I walked at 4 mph, 7 incline for 15 minutes after lifting.

    I pushed myself too hard today. I'm going to take a break from lifting tomorrow, not only do I have to work, but I am just not feeling up to heavy deadlifts. Hopefully I'll be back in the gym on Thursday.

    Thanks guys. I was resting all last evening, and I am feeling somewhat better this morning. REDuction seems to help keep my nose clear and taking a pain killer makes me feel almost better.

    I dosed 2 PM pills 30 minutes before bed last night. I had a difficult time going to sleep, unfortunately. My body couldn't decide whether it was hot or cold, so I ended up tossing and turning a lot. I don't know if this was due to REDuction or if I just had a fever. Either way I fell asleep later than I had wanted. Hopefully tonight will be better.

    I hate when this happens... and it happens often to me! Give it some time, or try to take the PM's earlier in the night, if this persists.

    Okay. Yeah, it happens to me even when I am not sick, thankfully not very often. I really think that it was this sickness. My whole neck is soo stiff and my head feels huge.
