Follow Along as I lean Out
First just want to say that I haven't been on this board in a long time, this is my first post in over 8 months but I was a long time member here under a different user name a few years ago (dave0214). Mostly when I was 19-20-21 in College. I am 25years old, have a full time job, and I am pretty normal person in the sense that workingout/bodybuilding isn't my life, I do it so I am not a fat slob and to feel better about my health. I have been working out since I was 14 and I was serious about it for the most part until the last 3 years where I've found myself going through stretches where I go to the gym for 4 months and then take 4-5 months off and let myself go a little bit. My last stretch went from October-April and I haven't been back to the gym since. As summer comes to a close, the beer drinking and partying will slow down a lot and I've decided its time to get back into shape.
Goal = 185-190lbs which is a good weight for me.
I officially began yesterday (8/9/10)
Supplements/Food as followed..This would be a typical Mon-Fri for me:
6:30am = Morning: (2) Alpha T2
7:00am = Breakfast: 6egg whites, 2 whole eggs, little cheese, some fried onions/peppers w/ hot sauce... (1) 6bromo, (2) MVP Vitamin
9:30am = NutraPro (2 scoops), little bit of peanuts
12:00pm = Lunch: Usually a Salad which I load with grilled chicken, then add some cucumbers, some bell peppers, broccoli, little cheese, and a little ranch dressing. (1) 6bromo, (2) MVP Vitamin
2:30pm = NutraPro (2 scoops), little bit of peanuts
5:30pm = Dinner: 30-40grams of protein w/ 20-30 healthy carbs
6:45pm = 1 scoop ASGT, + 1 60mg Geranium.
P.W.O = Nutra Pro (2 scoops), 20-30gram of carbs, + (3) mycogreen caps
I have extensive experience with supplements in my time and have used the Nutraplanet Geranium caps before and also have used Jack3d for Pre Workout. I have never taken Alpha T2 or the 6bromo. I have no problem getting through the days limiting my carb intake. I also can handle stims pretty well.
Total DAILY Supplementation:
(3) Alpha T2
(1) ASGT + (1) Geranium Pre Workout
(3) MycoGreen Post Workout
I do 30-45 minutes of Cardio everyday and I do my cardio before I work out. I won't do Cardio if I try to do it after I lift and I like going into my workout with a good sweat as well as the Preworkout supplements have some time to kick in. My cardio routine consists of either walking on a 4.5 incline at 3.5mph or doing the Elyptical machine on one of the random programs they have.
My weekly routine looks something like this:
So far I've been sweating a lot at work but its also 95 outside (I work inside) and I typically sweat a lot as it is. I will say that the AGST does not taste well at all. Yuck but I just chug it down. Right now I am sore in some spots because it was my first day back in so long but I expect muscle memory to kick in soon and for me to settle in nicely.

Looks like you got it under control thus far man. Ill keep an eye in here and see how it goes for you. I recently dropped a solid 15lbs of fat myself so i know how the journey will be haha. Stay Motivated and Have fun!

Thanks and awesome about the weight loss.
Obviously its pretty frustrating getting back into lifting and not being able to throw heavy weights around but it'll come in due time.
Shoulders is my favorite body part but my muscles were burning out pretty quick as I was doing a lot of reps/ lighter weight to try to get use to the motions again and build back some endurance.
As far as evaluating these products, I am mainly focused on the ASGT, and T2+6bromo. So far I can say that 1 scoop of ASGT is probably not enough and thats also with taking Geranium capsule as well. Going to up it to 1.5 scoops tomorrow.
Obviously with eating healthy, doing cardio, and working out, I am going to lose fat but I think I'll have a good idea if the T2/Bromo combo is speeding up the process.
Maybe I'll get some b4 pics up here from my phone and take another picture in 2 weeks then another 2 weeks.

Just a cardio day, I plan to use 2scoops of ASGT by itself and see how I feel. So far, don't feel much of anything from it but only been 2 days at 1 scoop and label say 1-3 scoops so I'll go from there.
Certainly noticed an increase feeling of warmth this afternoon after the t2 dose.
Boss brought me out to lunch for my bday and tried to eat as healthy as possible. Ended up getting a chicken fajita and only used 2 of the fajitas for the chicken/peppers/onions/lettuce/cheese.
45 minutes of cardio on the schedule for today and will see what the 2 scoops of ASGT does

As far as the diet goes that can be your cheat meal lol. Totillas are HIGH in carbs man! And i rarely do cheese for the high sodium aspect. If you get that diet on lock youll be able to reach your goal much faster and easier. Its hard though man not going to lie. My friends and family rarely invite me over for dinner or out to eat any more lol. My favorite line is "I CANT EAT THAT SH**". They all tell me you CAN eat it but you choose not to, and then the friendly bantering begins haha.
You can do it man!

As far as the diet goes, the tortillas were small but most def more carbs than I intended on eating for the day, only used a little bit of cheese for flavour but I did 45min of cardio last nite as a result of eating that meal. Mon-Fri should be no problem for me as far as keeping strict on the diet, even Saturdays shouldn't be terribly difficult to keep it real clean, Sundays could end up being my problem but Im going to try to avoid that.

Diet was real clean all day.
Took 2 scoops of ASGT w/ no Geranium today, did cardio-legs and had a pretty decent workout. Felt the ASGT today more than I have the previous 3 days so still keeping an open mind about it. Used my shaker bottle to mix it up and found that to be much better than using a cup and knife in a circle. Taste is growing on me a little bit too. Did notice a little uncomfortable feeling in my stomach about 45minutes after taking it but not ready to say that was the ASGT because it didn't happen yesterday.
Noticed the T2 making my body feel warm today.
Not much else to report going on
08-13-2010, 09:09 AM
One note on the T2, I feel the thermogenic effects most probably about and 1.5-2 hours after eating my meal.
t2 @ 6:45am
ate @ 7:15am
i am sweating sitting at my desk right now

Chest day today went as well as it could of gone. Muscles were getting fatigued but thats to be expected just coming back. Felt really good in the gym for the most part, took 2 scoops of ASGT and 1 geranium. I do notice about 45 minutes after taking the ASGT I've had to **** for the 2nd day in a row.
Don't think I've mentioned that the Nutrapro is a pretty enjoyable protein shake. I don't mess around with diff flavs and I am a strictly choc-water kind of guy with my protein shakes but the Nutrapro is pretty good.
Diet was real clean today, family orders pizza every friday which is quite possibly my favorite food ever and I have no desire to eat it.

i do believe the mycogreen is helping with the soreness because I am sore but not that sore like I have been previous times Ive decided to start up lifting again after a long break. The main reason I am just dosing it 3caps P.W.O was because I read this when I was going through the product description.
Overall I feel pretty good, got arms and cardio at the gym today probably just go w/ 2 ASGT and no geranium .MycoGreen™ will help with performance and recovery as it can aid in scavenging cellular toxins like lactic acid and ammonia.

really felt very good in the gym yesterday as far as energy/focus goes.
body is a little sore but today is just cardio, going to follow cardio with a 15-20 minute session of stretching.
saturday diet was pretty clean and didn't have any drinks last nite.
just want to note, i usually take my pre-workout supplements Monday-Friday between 6:45-7:15 and I have no trouble sleeping at night.
08-15-2010, 04:52 PM
They say you want to take ASGT everyday to keep your saturation levels up of the extra special ingredients lol. Ive been taking it everyday even if its just a single scoop. Something to look into that may or may not have an effect on your end result.

was in a big rush this morning that I didn't get a chance to weigh myself. Will make sure to do so tomorrow morning.
Back and cardio tonight. Will be doing 2ASGT and 1geranium.
My chest is very sore right now but I don't believe it will hamper my Back routine.
Probably going to post some weights from various lifts and then compare that in a few weeks. This will be the 2nd time going through my routine so should be a little better than last week.
08-16-2010, 04:56 PM
Look forward to some numbers man. Its always nice to see the numbers increase every week. Even if its just completeing a set at the same weight you previous failed on. Have fun.
08-16-2010, 09:25 PM
some #'s, not going to post every exercise, just a few:
lat pull down: 160x10 (x3)
bent over barbell rows: 135x12, 155x10 (x2)
seated cable rows: 160x10, 180x8 (x2)
looking forward to weighing myself tomorrow morning after my morning piss
08-16-2010, 09:54 PM
Id tip over forward if i tried to BB row 155lbs, thats more than i weigh lol. Nice numbers man nothing to be ashamed of at all.
08-16-2010, 10:03 PM
honestly I think I was a little hard on the ASGT at first. I think bumping it up to 2 scoops was certainly necessary but I also think it has a build up effect in the body opposed to a Jack3d which you feel 30 minutes after taking no matter what. Even with Jacked though I was using 2scoops but I always start low to see my tolerance, which is pretty high with stims. I really enjoy the 2ASGT+1geranium though, great feeling, actually wanted to like run through a wall or something when doing cardio. The one negative I would say is that it says to take 45min-1hour before workout which is a pretty long time but I've now been taking it about 1hour-15minutes after eating my Pre-Workout Meal .
As far as my lifts go, I've taken a long time off but I've been working out for a long time and I've always been pretty strong so I think in the next 2-3 weeks with muscle memory I'll be where I want to be in most lifts.
I will say this, I don't know how many more times I can keep taking 4-5 month breaks and trying to get back in the gym hard. I think after this round at it, when I feel like I'm getting burnt out again my goal will be to get to a maintain stage where I can go to the gym 3x a week just to stay in shape.

tonight is cardio/shoulders, going w/ 2 ASGT+1geranium. body feels real good and hopefully have a real good workout today. will post some weights from various exercises again.
08-17-2010, 06:22 PM
