Will Alpha-T2 Fight Against or Work With the Female Terminator?
It has now been 10 weeks since I started training again - plenty long enough for my body to have gotten used to being pushed again. Granted, I have been training well BELOW Maintenance levels, but that is all about to change!
I am 9 weeks out from my first Figure competition, where I am aiming to win my Pro card . . . Translation: A lot of hard work, effort, and >100% discipline and dedication to diet and training, because I have to be in the BEST condition I have ever been in! Since I ended up continuing to recomp as opposed to cutting during the last 4 weeks, I am still 4-6 weeks away from my goal of 7% bodyfat (or as low as physiologically possible for ME) - I want to be in competition condition 2-3 weeks out from the competition (which allows me ~6 weeks to get there), so that if I need to make any improvements, I have some time to do so - and therefore will concentrate more than ever on getting as lean as I can.
I am still working on bringing my fitness back up to my usual level, and the training that I will be doing over the coming weeks should do that.
I have just finished using T-911 and Anadraulic State GT, and Performance Enhancing Supplements has been kind enough to sponsor me a bottle of Alpha-T2 for the next phase of my competition preparation.
* Body Composition of 7% bodyfat (8% bodyfat is acceptable, but if I can get leaner, then I want to be leaner)
* Resting Pulse of 30-32 beats per minute (since my fitness is very important to me)
I'm starting this log at:
* Body Composition of 12.1% bodyfat
* Resting Pulse of 36 beats per minute
It's time to "Take No Prisoners!" again!
Monday: HIIT Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Shoulders
Tuesday: 20-40 min Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Arms
Wednesday: HIIT Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Full-Body
Thursday: 20-40 min Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Full-Body
Friday: HIIT Cardio + Stretch 20-30 minutes + Upper Body
Saturday: HIT + Stretch 20-30 minutes
Sunday: Day Off
A second cardio session (either am or pm) will be added in 2-4 days a week as well, depending on my night work schedule.
My training does not stay the same re exercises, order, sets, reps, or weight used, each week, but varies. I always lift as heavy as I can for the reps I set out to do each session, and I use 30 seconds to 1 minute recovery between sets/supersets/trisets/giant sets.
I am not going to do any specific work for my legs - aside from a few exercises for my hamstrings each week - as my lower body overwhelms my upper body. If I train legs, I gain muscle mass despite what I do (as has been shown over the last 8 weeks), and more muscle mass in my legs is NOT what I want or need.
I train first thing in the morning, since this is the most effective for me.
And for any given week training can be changed and adapted, based on how my body is feeling, recovery, etc.

Until now, I have used no specific diet as such, but followed a calorie/carbohydrate cycling method, listening to my body re higher calorie/carbohydrate days, with macronutrient ratios and amount of calories (anywhere from 1,800 to >4,000) changing on a day-to-day basis.
However, I have actually become very sensitive to my body's responses and reactions to different foods, and food intake and timing over the last several months, highly aware of changes in insulin levels, etc. During this time, it has hit home more than ever what foods I can and cannot tolerate (I have always eaten those I should not re sensitivities, even though I know I would feel and look better, and be healthier without them) - with some new sensitivities, along with the ones that I've had ever since childhood. Therefore, my diet is going to take into account all that, as well as what I have found results with over the last few weeks in particular, and yes, it is going to be very controversial to what I would have done in the past - and has taken a huge shift in my mindsets to be able to do this, I might add.
I will be having 5-6 meals daily, 2-3 hours apart.
I will continue to drink 1-2 galleons of water a day, with the only other liquid that I consume re drinks being herbal or green tea.

lets rock and roll! Looks good, want to see how it treats you (as you are a female and so is my fiance)
Also, 32 bpm heart rate? Even your current 36 seems super low.

rosie youre just too much
you ar etoo bada$$
The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.
Weight: 118.2 pounds - I'm not too concerned with what my weight is, so long as my body composition is where I want to be at.
Competition Goal: 7% bodyfat - or as low as I can physiologically get (mentioned in post #1)
Rosie this is going to be off topic but you got like a perfect noise and very good jaw bone. Its not a fetish so don't get freaked out but I pay a lot of attention to peoples face.
No prob, been checking out a few of your others, but, like you, dont like chiming in all of the time. Im in mostly for motivation and to follow someone in there way of being very strict about routines, nutrition and what not.
I've always been a big supporter. You're going to win that pro card, Rosie!!

good lucky Rosie! I see a lot of great supporters already on here. I just finished my A T2 run and it is hands down the best out there. Now enough talk, go get that card young lady!!

Have fun with this Rosie, lots of sweat. I am finishing up a run on this and loved it. Now moving on to Lean Xtreme again. Staying lower stim for a tiny bit. Good luck on the contest.

Day 2: Uh-oh . . .
a. 4 min jogging
b. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy
c. 4 min jogging
d. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy
After my last effort in my second set I had to suddenly stop and was violently sick. For the first time ever, I started to WALK, only to have to stop a second time and throw up again. This is the FIRST time I have EVER been sick during training - sure, sometimes I have felt nauseous or like I might, but I have never actually thrown up during training - and it's no fun, let me tell you. I cautiously walked the rest of the way home, since any exertion was going to cause further vomiting.
Stretch 20 min.
Sleep - Time and Quality: WHAT sleep? Seriously, I lay in bed for four hours before growling in frustration and getting up to get ready for training. Still haven't been able to go to sleep, despite the vomiting and feeling like sh*t! My eyes are bloodshot and my cheeks unnaturally flushed . . .
Mood/Aggression: Being sick during training really threw me for a six - not only has it never happened before, but I rarely throw up and can count the number of times I have in my entire life on one hand, the last time being in 2004! Made me highly upset that I could not go to the gym - well, I could, but since any exertion just makes me want to be sick, not the best of ideas.
Energy: I have energy - and I want to use it!
Stimulant Effects: I'm still awake!
Mental Focus and Clarity: There.
Metabolism: I've barely eaten anything in the last two days, so not sure.
Appetite: Haven't been inclined to eat anything for two days - been nauseous since yesterday, with cold water making me want to be sick, and then after training today not wanting to give my stomach something but water to chuck back out (reason I suspect is food poisoning).
Stress: I NEED to be able to vent physically through intense TRAINING!
Endurance: Fine (before I had to stop).
Quality of Training: Before I had to stop, it was going ok . . .
Recovery: Yesterday was the first of my planned Sundays off, and my body was fresh from it.
Other Effects: I feel hotter than usual, but my skin is cold and clammy. My glands became a little swollen last night. Lack of sleep is not improving matters. Not from my supplements though, all this, but food poisoning - I think . . .
Sucks to be sick!
You can always take a Tums/Rolaids or Pepcid Complete if your morning dose of stimulants bother you. Sometimes they will increase the acidity of the stomach, especially on an empty stomach, and cause people to throw up. PLUS, calcium carbonate (whats in most antacids) can actually help absorb even more of your stims
Days 3 & 4: Three Days Out For The Count
A disappointing fat lot of NOTHING - every time I exert any effort for anything but walking or standing up I feel like I'm going to be sick all over again (NOT fun and fcuking frustratingly annoying!)
Sleep - Time and Quality: I slept a little late this morning, after hours and hours of TRYING to get my mind to calm and settle enough to let me (yeah, right), and should have been easy, considering I hadn't slept since Saturday (WTF???!!!)
Mood/Aggression: Can't be bothered - just want to sit and watch cartoons and animated movies of all things, which is just odd since I haven't felt much like watching movies in a long time . . . Mood is starting to get edgy since I haven't been training . . .
Energy: I do believe that it is there - the nausea is preventing anything from happening.
Stimulant Effects: Interestingly enough, my heart rate is DEEP - I can feel every heartbeat pounding in my chest (but it's not INcreased), much like stacking BLACK CATS and ephedra, LOL. Body temperature is also high as high - but that could be a fever or something; not sure, since I'm getting on and off chills as well . . .
Mental Focus and Clarity: My mind WON'T shut off (damnit!)
Metabolism: Have not eaten much over the last few days, so can't really tell.
Appetite: Drinking cold water makes me feel ill, and the thought of food right now is so offputting that it's not funny.
Stress: I want to train DAMNIT!
Other Notes: I did NOT take my doses of BLACK CATS today, and only one dose of Shred Matrix - I want to see if less stimulants will let me sleep tonight!
sorry to hear about this good lady! On a brighter note, I can recommend watching Despicable Me... it was freaking hilarious!!!!!
