Cuttin it up with Primordial Performance Dermatherm/Sustain/CLA
Thanks to Mr. Eric I am able to run this long-term log for Dermatherm/Sustain Alpha/ EndoAmp/Toco-8/and CLA PP products for approximately the next 80 days. I might be considering adding in some 1-t/Tren after I post cycle with Sustain for 40 days or so.
A little background on what I am doing and where I have been so you can see where I am going. I have been currently cutting for 29 days now after going on a 4-month long bulk and gaining 50 lbs. I started my bulk on November 3rd weighing in at 201lbs and ended my bulk on March 1st weighing in at 250lbs. I started cutting on March the 2nd. I ran 1-T for the last 21 days of my bulk and for the first 28 days of my cut hoping to ease the transition into cutting and sparing as much muscle as possible. I feel like I gained a little too much fat around my midsection which is cause for concern since I am most likely going to be competing in a fitness modeling show on June 18th in Miami.
I have been very happy with the 1-T and would like to say that I have enjoyed the strength and size gains that the 1-T gave me and the help it has given me for this first month of my cut. If you have any questions about my 1-T cycle you can feel free to ask, but on this thread I am going to concentrate on the cut.
Now I will go over my nutrition so you guys can know how I am eating. My nutrition does not waiver or vary from week to week. It stays fairly consistent and that makes it easier for me being that I am a college student and also juggle three jobs.....yes three.
At least 3 whey protein shakes providing 38-50 grams of protein per shake, sometimes this is stretched to 4 shakes if I am having a really busy day. I will have 2-3 other whole protein meals throughout the day. The other protein sources are; 6oz cooked chicken breast, 8oz sliced turkey, 8oz 96/4 ground beef, or one packet of tuna. 3 meals will have 15 grams of dietary fat added to them in the form of almonds, natural peanut butter, or a liquid fish oil supplement.
Every Sunday will be a carb-up day for my thyroid (and my sanity). I will have 300-400 grams of carbs in the form of whole grain pasta, brown rice, and sometimes rice cakes (I know they are not the greatest, but it helps curb some cravings.) I will still try to get around 200 grams of protein in on this day also.
Here is EVERYTHING that I am currently taking; Orange Triad Multi by Controlled Labs, VPX's Meltdown @ 3 caps per day, B12 3 times a day, Fish Oil, every morning I get my gallon of water and add 5 servings of Amino Acids and 5 servings of Glutamine and drink throughout the day, PP's Toco-8, CLA @ 6 caps a day. Starting tomorrow March 30th I will be adding in the Dermatherm, EndoAmp, and Sustain Alpha to start my first day of PCT.
I will be on a 6-day split using a high intensity workout that I used on a previous cut. M-F will be a 5 day bodypart split and Saturday will be a day I work on a lagging part and I can pretty much guarantee it will always be chest because that's a weak point for me. M-F I will be normally doing 4 sets per exercise and usually around 15 reps with one minute of rest in between sets. I will typically do between 16-20 sets per bodypart. I haven't started doing cardio yet because I am seeing good results with the change in nutrition and the higher intensity workouts with shortened rest periods. I plan on starting cardio in the next week or two to add some extra calorie burn. When I start the cardio I will describe what kind of cardio I did and so on and so forth.
I hope to have measurements, and pics by the end of the week. As of friday I am weighing in at 232lbs which puts me at around an 18lb loss for the first 4 weeks. When I started the cut I was topping out at around 18% bodyfat using SKF method. It's a race to get back down to 6% and we are all going to see how fast I can get there. I feel 1-T definitely did help me start out my cut and transition into the nutrition and workout change more smoothly than if I had not been taking it. I have all my workouts written down for the last 3 years so I will be posting my workout #'s and exercises every few days for this current cut.
I hope that's a good start to what I am doing and I will be posting up my Monday leg workout sometime tonight. If you guys have any other questions let me know.
Success will be the best revenge.....

Monday March 30th- Legs
Today I am sad to say that I am in PCT and have finished my two bottles of 1-T. It was a great ride and I want to try 1-T/Tren as soon as possible.
I applied Sustain and Dermatherm after I worked out today. I applied the Sustain to my legs, balls, near my lats, serratus, and chest. I applied Dermatherm to my abs, shoulders, upper arms, and forearms. I didn't really notice anything with the Sustain but noticed it has a nice citrus scent. The Dermatherm was a different story, it turned my skin red and my skin was hot for an hour or so. Some might say that is bad but to me that means......it's working. I also took my other supplements today with no missed dosages.
I had a fairly good leg workout today, and I think my bodyfat is getting low enough to start doing a lot of ab work. I started with some abs today. I am just going to use my blackberry and take some pics tomorrow or wednesday.
All exercises were performed with a stopwatch attached to my shorts. At or before the stopwatch read 1:00oo I started my next set.
Leg Press: 450/15 470/15 490/15 490/15
Linear Hack Squat: 120/15 120/15 120/15 120/15
Seated Leg Curl: 120/15 120/15 120/15 120/15
Seated Leg Extension: 130/15 130/15 130/15 140/15
1-leg Prone Leg Curl: 50/13 50/13 50/13 50/13
Standing Glute Push: 90/15 90/15 90/15 90/15
Adductor: 110/15 110/15 110/15 110/15
Abductor: 90/15 100/15 100/15 100/15
Ab Coaster: 20/15 20/15 20/15 20/15
Had a good 15 minute stretch afterward.
I am still feeling the 1-T in me which is an amazing feeling, great pumps and good strength. I can't wait to start to see the results from the Dermatherm, I feel like it will work just from the first application and look forward to the results.

Day 2 PCT- March 31st- Arms
Well I just got done with my workout and learned some very disheartening news from Jim. Apparently the level of hormones in the Dermatherm is high enough so that I can't use it during my PCT from the 1-T. This creates quite the issue for me as I am going to have to PCT for the next 30 days and was planning on running the Dermatherm for the entire time. This is quite upsetting and means I might have to consider finding and purchasing another topical product that can deliver results without using the hormones so I can utilize it during the PCT process. The other problem is that I have four bottles of Dermatherm now.....that I am going to have to try and sell. But I can't let that get me too upset, I have goals and deadlines so the show MUST go on. I weighed in at 226lbs today. I'm cutting fast.
Once again had my stopwatch attached to my shorts and did one minute of rest or less between sets. But every set was a superset today, first a bicep then immediately a tricep then one minute of rest and repeat. Great for an arm workout and a ridiculous pump.
Close grip z-bar curl: 70/15 70/15 70/15 70/15
Skull Crusher: 80/15 80/15 80/15 80/15

Reverse grip press: 75/15 85/15 95/15 95/15
High Arm Cable Curl: 20/15 30/15 30/15 30/15
1-arm cable pressdown: 40/15 40/15 40/15 40/15
Decelerating Back Xtension: 6/5 6/5 6/5 6/5
(Decelerating spinal extension on the back extension, using abdominals as the decelerator.)
Still aggravated about this bump in the road....off to the library to study.
03-31-2009 09:24 PM
BTW.....Thanks Jim! I didn't know I could use the new DermaTherm Target and that it's non-hormonal. This means I will run the Dermatherm Target for about 35 days, then start 1-t/Tren stacked with hormonal Dermatherm first week of May. That means I will be getting even more shredded and harder and leaner into the first two weeks of June. Which will put me right on target. Thanks a bunch for the offer and for helping me out with this stuff. Which also means this log will probably run into June. In it for the long haul

Good luck hittin' those goals bud. With the help of PP, your goals will be much more easily obtained I'm sure
04-01-2009 07:58 AM
I had good success with dermatherm, hopefully the new one will be just as good... I'm definitely interested in your feedback on that front!
I'm shortly going to be running a stack of formex, phyto-test and (the old) dermatherm since i got a couple of bottles on their stock clearing blow out, should be good!
04-01-2009 10:38 AM
I look forward to watching your progress. If you have any questions along the way, i'd be glad to help.

Day 3- Chest
I worked out SUPER early today. I couldn't go to sleep on tuesday night until like 3 in the morning and woke up two hours later at five to pee and decided I wanted to go get my workout done before school and work. I went to the gym at 5 am.....weird how I seem to do that randomly once every few months. For only being able to sleep for 2 hours I had a surprisingly decent chest workout. Im going to continue to use the original Dermatherm until I receive the Dermatherm target becuse I need the benefits now. So hopefully I can get that situation squared away ASAP.
As always, stopwatch attached to me and no more than a 1 minute rest between sets.

Went in to the aerobics room to do some agility drills.
4 sets of Shuffle
4 sets of Karaoke
4 sets of High Knees
Taking less than a minute rest between and using that time for ankle touches really kept my heartrate up. All in all a great workout. The dermatherm still feels like it is working and I am buying a digital camera so I don't have to worry about using anyone else's. Like I said before I will continue to use the Dermatherm until I can get the Dermatherm Target.

Very nice job on the log. I love it when you can feel something "working!"
I have yet to try our reformulation, but it will be part of this summers cut for certain.
