The Resolve Household is cutting up for swimsuit season!
That's right, this will be the first joint log that BW and I run together - perhaps the first of many. We will each be posting our own insights, thoughts, and workouts, but will be sharing this thread and, of course, all of your awesome company!
The Sponsored Goodness:
ALPHA-T2 by PES
We've known Nattydisaster since first joining the online bodybuilding community. He's proven himself knowledgeable, creative and the mark of integrity. BW and I are both very excited to be trying his new product.
E-911 by LG Sciences
Ladies and gentlemen, get to know the LG Reps. No other group of guys on this board has been as helpful as they, be it with advice or actual product. joins our stash thanks to these helpful guys, and we're happy to put it to the test!
Our Other Supplementation:
and Lipotropic Proteins
*Under no normal circumstances would I even consider this over-price, underdosed B.S. But thanks to AM's own Benj851 we scored 3 bottles for a sliver of their SRP; cheap enough to make it more than worthwhile - especially when double-dosed and stacked with some BC+EAA.
We'll each post our own stats, diet, routines, etc. separately, so here are mine:
247lb as of this morning
BF% is anybody's guess, but I've got abs
PRs: Olympic Front Squat 325, Bench 360, DL 515, Back Squat 410 (don't quote me on that squat, but it was within 5-10lb of that)
Carb/Calorie Cycling with intake ranging from 50g CHO and 2100 cals on low days, to 600g CHO and 4200 cals on high days. This is a cutting diet, but I am incorporating more carbs than normal - I simply missed oatmeal and rice. I compensate for the increased CHO by decreased calories.
As comes with a calories deficit, I've been experiencing some strength loss, primarily in my bench. However, I've seen steady increases in several movements and hope this trend continues.
I'm sticking with my 5/3/1 Powerlifting 2days each week - it's been working and I see no reason to quit. Another 3days each week I have been performing some high-volume, giant- and tri-set based bodybuilding. You'll see what I mean. Also, for the first time in who knows how long, I'm incorporating a Push-Pull Split.
So, come on in and watch the greasefire commence!
