    First off I want to start out thanking universal and Hg for the chance to log their product.
    Lets get this show on the ROAD!


    STATS:\


    GOALS:\
    Pretty simple, Get Shredded Stay BIG.

    DIET:\
    My cal. needs is right around 2800-3000 cals. I'm going to want to keep it down in the 2200-2500 range.
    General basic diet should be close to 150g carbs, 200g protein, 100g fat. At no times do I wanna break 200g carbs.

    TRAINING:\
    Depending on my work schedule which Ill be getting Monday here is what I'm looking at weight training wise
    1. Chest/tris
    2. Legs
    3. off
    4. back
    5. shoulders
    6. arms
    7. off


    Condition is going to be fit in on a day to day basis, done at least 6 days a week. Will be a mix between steady state, HIIT, running, cycling, jump rope, high pace full body workouts, more sweat the better. One goal is to get in some fasted cardio every morning if possible.


    OTHER SUPPS:\
    • Protein (whey)
    • Creatine
    • multi
    • OEP
    • Pre w/o
    • Glucosamine
    • Vit. D
    • Vit. C
    • Omega



    I want to really kick up the intensity the next few weeks. Intensity seems to be slippin not only in my training, but my life, so I'm hoping this is a good turn around.
    No Let Downs.

    I'm going to start this run MONDAY JUNE 28th, which Ill fill in all the numbers for the start date, as well as post Start pics up.

    FINAL REVIEW

    STARTING STATS:\
    • Weight: 197.4
    • Height: 5'8"
    • BF%: 12.288% (Body Fat Calculator)
    • Arm(L/R):15.25/15.3
    • Neck:15.5
    • Chest:42
    • Waist:35'
    • Thighs(L/R):24/24.2
    • Calves:16.2/16.2


    ENDING STATS:\
    • Weight: 188.1(-9.3)
    • Height: 5'8"(-0.0)
    • BF%: 10.154(-2.134%) (Body Fat Calculator)
    • Arm(L/R):15.4/15.55(+.15/+.25)
    • Neck:15.25(-.25)
    • Chest:42(+0)
    • Waist:33.9(-1.1)
    • Thighs(L/R):24.15/24.25(+.1/+.05)
    • Calves:16.2/16.2(+0)


    RECOVERY: 9/10
    DOMS was controlled very well, had some long days, and tough back to back workout days and felt fresh every morning. Even with the abuse my legs took with cardio/weight training/cycling it didn't keep my out of the gym.
    ABILITY TO MAINTAIN LBM:10/10
    The stats speak for themselves. I made gains or maintained size in most areas. Strength was maintained for the most part, because lack of calories energy took a drop which could explain lack of strength sometimes.
    ABILITY TO LOSE BF:10/10
    Lost an inch around the weight, close to 10ibs, and 2%BF in about 5 weeks. And with most of my good measurements maintaining or gaining, i feel like it was all BF. I will have to thank OEP for great results again, as well as a solid diet high in protein, and low carbs. with cals in the 1500-1800 range.
    WOULD I BUY AGAIN: Already Did.
    Ordered some Applejacked the other day actually!

    This is by far one of the best post w/o's i've used in a long while. No bloating, decent/good tasting. (I recommend mixing with some Gatorade for a great taste and a few extra carbs is desired) if your dieting, or just want a great Post workout drink, I RECOMMEND TORRENT ZERO.

    As you can see I let myself go a little. using skin folds I got about 12% BF which might be a little low of an estimation, I feel like its much higher. No visible chest definition from midsection I want to change that. Also want to reduce the love handles as much as possible.
    But don't want to lose size in my chest, arms and legs.

    Torrent Zero Info


    Torrent Zero: Get Shredded. Stay Big.

    Dieting is rough. Eating clean, cardio and supersets galore. It takes a special breed to push on undeterred in the direction of your physique goals. Sacrifices have to be made. For some this might mean giving up strength on your big lifts or maybe feeling skinny in your favorite t-shirt. For others, the diet gets super strict, the morning cardio begins and the cheat meals go out the window.

    To take the goal of leanness to the next level of extremity, many dedicated bodybuilders begin to restrict their carbs, some removing them even from their breakfast and postworkout meals, instances where hard training athletes typically load up on oatmeal, fruit and even on simple carb sources. During the postworkout period especially, bodybuilders attempt to replace glycogen, shuttle nutrients and spike their insulin creating an anabolic environment for muscle repair and new growth. To do so, they often utilize simple, “fast” carb sources like dextrose, maltodextrin and waxy maize. The result? They grow bigger and feel fuller. For the vast majority of lifters looking to get big, this is a simple, proven approach.

    It was with this exact outcome in mind that Universal developed the original Torrent formula. Loaded with whey hydrosylate, 18 grams of anabolic actives and a whopping 52 grams of special carbs in the form of the Osmosulin Matrix™, it is a veritable growth powerhouse and one that has gained quite a following among those in the know. However, even the most ardent of the hardcore set's Torrent advocates often must make yet another sacrifice to the shredded gods in the name of leanness and give up their beloved Torrent. Until now.

    Knowing precisely what the most dedicated of bodybuilders wants and needs, because they live it too, the team at Universal sought to give the dieting athlete all of the benefits of Torrent while keeping in mind their Spartan caloric restrictions. How could one boost recovery, maximize the anabolic response, volumize and fill out muscles and benefit from the muscle building potential of insulin without wrecking their precontest nutritional protocol, throwing their macronutrient intake out of whack? The Answer? Torrent Zero.

    Capturing all of the explosive anabolic potential of Torrent minus the added carbs, Torrent Zero is the product that carb-restricting, dieting bodybuilders have long waited for. Loaded with muscle-building nutrients like hydrolyzed whey and massive doses of advanced aminos and creatine, Torrent Zero puts to rest forever the fallacy that getting lean requires getting small.

    Instead of a stripped down version of the original, best-selling Torrent, with Torrent Zero, we replace what was removed (the carbs) with a powerful new blend: Insulinobolic Complex. This complex is aptly named for its pro-insulin effects and includes such ingredients as glycine, inosine, 4-hydroxyisoleucine, cinnamon and Na-R-alpha lipoic acid (Na-R-ALA). These natural insulin potentiating compounds work to increase the production of insulin without the addition of any excess sugars or carbohydrates.

    Na-R-ALA, 4-hydroxyleucine and cinnamon, in particular, help your body to utilize the ultra anabolic hormone insulin more effectively and efficiently. These ingredients help increase the uptake of glycogen and increase muscle cell volume, contributing to keeping your muscles full and drawing in the necessary protein and amino acids for improved recovery and muscle repair. Glycine and inosine are also included to further strengthen the increase in insulin secretion in the absence of carbs.

    Matching these carb-free pro-insulin ingredients with Torrent's requisite 20 grams of hydrolyzed whey and 18 grams of anabolic aminos and creatines, Torrent Zero primes the dieting bodybuilder for fresh muscle growth and optimal recovery from the most intense precontest training sessions even when on restricted cardio and minimal carbs. While your opponents are enduring muscle-wasting catabolism, you'll stay anabolic-giving you the upper hand come game day. Getting lean and mean doesn't have to mean getting small and weak anymore. Get shredded. Be big, strong and full. Dominate the competition with Torrent Zero.

    Day One (6.28.10)


    DAY ONE:


    Weight:197.4

    Qoute Of The Day:
    “Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find his right road.” Dag Hammarskjold

    Diet:
    Cals:1408
    Fat:42
    Carbs:128
    Protein:142

    NOTES:First day on OEP, (this is my second time taking it) and I almost forgot how much it destroys my appetite. That being said, all my numbers are low. Carbs are in a decent area, I'm pretty happy with that.


    Training:
    Fasted Cardio:1.8 mile run- untimed, decent pace.
    Weight training:
    Bench [215x8] [215x8] [215x8] [245x4]
    Incline DB press [60x10] [60x10] [60x9 failed on 10th]
    Dips [BWx15] [BWx13] [BWx12]
    Cable Cross [50x8] [50x8] [50x8] [30x8]
    overhead DB tri Ext. [55x15] [55x15] [55x15] [55x15]
    cable tri push down [80x8] [80x8] [80x6 --> 50x10]

    Cardio: 5 mile cycle untimed, mild hills, decent pace.


    Narrative:
    Took 2 OEPs pre fasted cardio, came back ate some high fiber/protein ceral, and I didn't think about food untill maybe 5pm. OEP does that to me, I should of known better, but when i realized it, it was too late.
    Ok, The Torrent Zero bottle says for best results take 1 serving (3 scoops) a half hour pre, and half hour post. decided to take 1 scoop pre, my pre w/o, then hit the weight, took a full serving as soon as i walked out of the locker room.
    Took my last OEP before my bike ride, then called it a night

    TORRENT ZERO NOTES:
    Unless a rep chimes in, I dont think Ill take the dose pre w/o. I take Muscle Marainade pre workout, and I tend not to like to drink a lot of stuff before lifing, I hate that bloated feeling. If It would make more sense to take it pre w/o Ill make the proper changes to make it work.
    Taste:7
    The full serving mixed with about 8-10oz of water tastes decent, No problem finishing it, very light watermelon taste, reminds me of watermelon bubble gum, minus the sweetness. For the macro profile, I'm happy with the taste
    Mixability:10
    No clumps, no grains, went down very easy
    Consistency:light
    not thick, or heavy, doesn't leave you feeling bloated. similar to a sports drink.
    Sides:NONE
    one day down and no problems seem to arise from the torrent zero

    Back Ext. [BWx25] [BWx25] [BWx25] [BWx25]



    Narrative:
    OEP killed me again eating wise. Dont want my metabolism to crash too much, so tomorrow's goal is to eat steadlily through out the day, which would never be a challenge for me, untill i met OEP.
    Today felt some tightness/soreness in my chest, normal, nothing out of the ordinary. Slightly less than normal? Its tough to say. We'll see how my legs feel tomorrow.
    Just took 3 scoops post w/o today, like i said, busy day but got my serving of torrent in again right after leaving the locker room, We'll see how my legs and chest feel tomorrow.

    Knowing accurately what the most dedicated of bodybuilders likes and desires, because they reside it too, the group at Universal searched to give the eating sparingly athlete all of the advantages of Torrent while holding in brain their Spartan caloric restrictions. How could one increase recovery, maximize the anabolic answer, volumize and load up out sinews and advantage from the sinew construction promise of insulin without destroying their precontest nutritional protocol, throwing their macronutrient intake out of whack? The Answer? Torrent Zero.

    The question still is, Is Torrent still effective without the carbs? Will it be able to promote the effects of insulin, without spiking it? The answer lies at the end of this log.

    Day Three (6.30.10)


    DAY THREE:


    Weight:196.0(-1.4)

    Qoute Of The Day:
    “You can’t hit a home run unless you step up to the plate. You can’t catch a fish unless you put your line in the water. You can’t reach your goals if you don’t try.” Kathy Seligman

    Diet:
    Cals:1375
    Fat:59
    Carbs:147
    Protein:74

    NOTES:Busy days, plus no appetite have made eating harder than normal, i'm enjoying the calorie deficient, but my protein is way too low, I need to better schedule my time to eat some quality protein, i'm not thrilled about the idea of supplementing with more shakes, (its an expensive fix) but its a quick way out of my problem for now.

    Training:
    OFF DAY

    CARDIO: just short 5 mile mountain bike trail ride. Many short steep hills, and medium grade climbs, decent pace.


    Narrative:
    Took OEP before breakfast on and empty stomach, ate and hit the trails. Was going for a 5 mile loop, untill my rear derailleur somehow got caught in my spook and turned into an chunk of twisted and broken plastic and metal.

    TORRENT ZERO NOTES:
    Chest felt fine today, legs a little sore, but not enough to keep me off the trails. Took a serving of Torrent Zero after my ride, we'll see how my legs feel tomorrow. This will be a good test for Torrent Zero.

    [QUOTE=Gonzo14;2489994]
    END WEEK TWO UPDATE:


    Weight:193.5


    Narrative:
    Two weeks down from my OEP/Torrent Zero stack. I feel overall pretty good. Slightly fatigued, but motivated. There is a drop in weight loss, as you'll see in the pictures, starting to see definition from mid section and chest. Mass in chest arms and back seems to be maintained, not too much muscle loss.

    TORRENT ZERO NOTES:
    Taking i full serving, 3 scoops after working out seems to be a good dose. Not too heavy or filling, no bloat or anything of the sort. Only issue I came into was after one dose on a empty stomach I felt very sick to my stomach, but it could of been because i went right out into the heat on a 100degree day.
    Also, yesterday went for a 56 mile road ride, very hilly, steep climbs, and most of the big hills weren't rolling so it was a killer. Took my torrent zero right after and went to bed thinking I wasn't walkign to day and was pleasently surpized that there is minimal soreness, except a knot in my calf that I got mid ride yesterday.
    Overall I'm impressed with Torrent zeros ability to reduce DOMS, and maintain size and mass of LBM while on a calorie deficit.

    I'm all about it. I always worried post workout about getting enough carbs, but not too many cause I've been trying to lean out for some time. TZ is huge because I dont have to worry about all that now, which makes life a lot easier

    Exactly. And if you want a few carbs you can add them since you know where you are starting. I'm diggin this stuff.

    I was thinking mixing it with G2 Gatorade, not too many carbs, plus could be interesting flavor mixes, I think thats whats good about TZ is that the flavor is subtle so even if you dont like it, you can mix it with some kind of sports drink or flavored water to make it more appealing, but i'm happy with the watermelon flavor in just water.

    Cardio:2 hours of intense ultimate frisbee, completely dead after.

    Narrative:
    Good workout, really trying to hit it hard. After a 56 mile road ride with crazy climbs, I was surpised to see my TZ took care of most DOMS, I thought I wasn't going to walk, but it worked out ok.
    I was starting to think that maybe my second run of OEP wasn't as effective as my first, cause weight loss seems to be a bit slower, but I noticed that the 4-5 ibs i've lost are by first inspection all BF, with minimal LBM loss, super pumped.

    Also in other news, after my TZ is finish I've got a super stack in the making, APP NUTS Newest super stack chances are you already missed out on, so get ready for that.

    TORRENT ZERO NOTES:
    I'm thrilled with TZ right now, most if not all LBM has stayed on and i'm losing BF. DOMS is minimal, and with all the cardio and calstinics my legs have been taking a beating, its important Im ready to go everyday.

    UPDATE:

    Been real busy with work and such. Been killing it in the gym, as well as calisthenics and interval cardio work. offically down to 190, a drop of about 7ibs.
    Ill post pictures as well as measurements to see where i'm at. I feel just as strong so It seems like fat loss.
    DOMS has been under control, recovery has been increased compared to normal specially in my legs, with the constant abuse they are taking.
    Tomorrow I have a 66 mile road race with some moderate climbs, we'll see how my legs feel monday.

    UPDATE: Bad News

    I hammered through 66 miles of some pretty intense hilly tar, throught he Hudson valley. It wasn't easy those. At mile 47, We had to cross a high traffic bridge over the Hudson river, at the peak of the bridge a rider in front of me hit a water drainage crease in the pavement and crashed, In attempt to avoid running over him, i turned sharply, felt myself losing balance and tried to correct myself, resulting in over correcting and falling the other way, into traffic. I just missed a car, rolled over as another car passed just missing my head, I got got up grabbed my bike and got off to the shoulder as fast as possible.
    Luckily my handle bars took most of the fall, bending my stem, and ripping up my grip pretty bad, the only injury was the terrible road rash on my knee.
    At the time it wasn't too bad, took some advil, cleaned it out with anti septic and nutted up and finished out the ride.
    By the time i got back to the staging area, it was very swollen and steadily bleeding. I showered, rinsed it out again, patched up the wound and went home. I went to the E.R today to get it check out, x rays showed no breaks so thats good, just a ton of swelling and really bad bruising and burns.
    currently I cant walk all that well on it. And with so much dependent on my knees (sports, ect) I dont want to push it.
    Looks like I'm out for atleast a week.

    heres an picture of the damage done.

    While at the staging area some other riders noticed my injury and offered help ect. I was def. discouraged being my first major road crash (MTB crashes are expected, and even those I haven't had any real major ones yet) but a rider told me "theres two types of cyclists out there, ones that have fallen, and ones that will fall" It helped my moral more than I think he Imagen to help me out.
    Looks like this week is going to be dedicated to R&R and plenty of ice.
