Couple of questions bro. Are you finding a clean energy with the Maniac. How do you like the flavor of the Recover Pro?
07-07-2009, 04:00 PM
Indeed I am. Earlier back I did mention the aggression and energy that this delivers that I've never done before. It allows me to get through a set when I'm on Maniac! I love it :] I gave my friend some and he was bouncing around before with the energy ha ha
Recover Pro could work on the flavor. 3 scoops with 18oz water is a bit meh for me, but my taste buds have become accustomed to it.
What I do is 1 scoop per 6oz. 6ozx3scoops = 18oz water. That's just how I do it.

* Protein contains 4 calories per gram
* Carbohydrates contain 4 calories per gram
* Fat contains 9 calories per gram
As stated above, lets say I have an intake of my 209g of protein yesterday, 836 calories are alone from the protein all together which brings my intake to 2596 calories. That's just alone added with the protein. Does this really matter when it comes to your calorie intake? Do I also add the other two into my overall calorie intake?
07-08-2009, 12:11 PM
Your question is hard to understand. At 836 protein calories, that comes to 32% of your total calories. Some say since you are recomping, cutting, you should get 40-60% from protein, probably no less than 20% from fat, and the rest from carbs. Try to clarify your question a little better for us.
07-08-2009, 05:15 PM
I would like to know if the calories from protein, carbs, and fats are also contributed towards your calorie intake.
Let's say I eat 1 cup cottage cheese with 163 calories and 28g protein, 2g fat total, total carbs 6g, would I also add the calories of the 3?
So 28gx4 = 112 calories
2x9 = 18 calories
6gx4= 24 calories totaling to 154, does the 154 calories from these 3 add towards the 163, making it a total of 317 calories just from the cup of cottage cheese
07-09-2009, 02:20 PM
No. The individual macro calories total up to what the total calories per serving is listed as. Usually the totals aren't 100% equal, usually because of vague labeling laws by the FDA. It should be close though.
07-09-2009, 03:09 PM
Alright awesome then :P that was my only concern then if that were true I would be going over my calorie intake xD Thank you for clarifying it

Appreciate the support guys. Well I usually type up what I eat during the day in my phone and I was dumb enough to copy it over with something else. So I think I lost a day or two of information. So when I get the chance I'll update it.
I didn't get to each much today so I had like a high calorie intake from work =[. a 10oz steak sirloin with sweet potato fries, and like 1 potato skin. :x
I did not have the chance to work out Friday or Saturday either. I will be working out later today though since it's hamstrings, calves and arms that I will need to do. Not a bad combination.

Man I feel good thanks for Maniac and Recover Pro! They both allowed me to get through my sessions! :]
Taste: 7 (Recover) 9(Maniac) - my rating for Recover Pro used to be lower, but I am soon getting used to the taste. I had a friend try it and he was like wth is that! I laughed..
My workout consisted of a 15min stretch out with a 1 mile run that I did in about 8minutes taking a nice pace jog. The 3rd lap I was starting to get a bit down in the dump with the sun beaming on me and my sweat belt on, but with Maniac kicking it I was focused and just had that aggression to finish one more lap.
Once I was done I took a few sips on RecoverPro (3 scoops with 18oz water) and then I hit the abs.
Partial Sit-ups 25 Reps 3 Sets
Modified V-Ups 25 Reps 3 Sets
Knee-Ins 25 Reps 3 Sets
Bicycle Crunches 40 Reps 3 Sets
Crunches 25 Reps 3 Sets
1 minute rest, and then repeated the cycle. Sure was a good sweat with the sun, but hey I sure got a nice tan!
Once I was finished, I jogged a bit towards my car and then walked the rest of the way. I left the windows up to sweat while in the car as I drove to the gym (3min drive) and from there I hit my hamstrings. (Check page 3 for workout list)
Then calves, once completed I went into my arms. (Check page 3 for workout list)
Only thing was I took two sets off the Twenty-Ones, 1 set off the 3rd workout, and 2 sets off the dumbbell curls using forces negatives.
Overall.. these products are helping me greatly. Another 1lb lost, but it might be more since I have my shoes and my shorts were drenched.
Many friends have notice myself getting tone/leaner and so haven't I. I'll take a pictures on day 31.
07-12-2009, 04:21 PM
07-13-2009, 11:12 PM
Any time mate! :]
Will update the logs later in the day.
I will be adding.. Guerilla Cardio into my workout as a HIIT. I usually jogged, and jump roped on alternative days (page 3)
What do you guys think i should do it on? Wed (back and abs) and Sat (arms)
or Thursday(shoulders) and Sun(day off usually, unless I don't go Friday I push everything over a day)

^^ I did not take Maniac or Recover Pro at all today.
How did I feel at the gym working on my chest? Not the same. I did have the aggression, but I did yawn a few times in the gym. While in Maniac I do not yawn, nor do I recall. I have a few troubles getting some pumps up out of me, but with Maniac I do not have that problem.

Log will be down for awhile. I have a girl visiting me from Texas for a week. So my nutrition will be the same. Except one high calorie intake meal if I ever take her out to eat.
I will keep logging in my journal. As far as updating..that will be a lot of writing. So I will see what I will do when the day comes. Unless I pop back out of no where after 2-4 weeks with some more pictures. ;]
07-19-2009, 03:05 PM
Great progress, keep up the good work, loving the results man, wish the best on your upcoming gains.
doing my own thang!
07-19-2009, 04:25 PM

Went to the mall purchased some Lipo 6x to progress my fat loss, along with some more Muscle Milk.
