Aight guys, I am pissed. Spent an hour trying to get a good log started and my computer crashed so here we are again....a little cranky now but.....man it was good!!!!!
First is First......the good's I will be rockin:
X-Factor Advanced Molecular Nutrition
Test Factor Molecular Nutrition
APS Creatine Nitrate
If I add or take anything away, I will post it that day. I have taken A TON of supplements over my years of working out so far so I know my body well and how it is responding to a certain compound. I am excited to see how this stack affects me.
A little about me:
Ever since 6 years old, I have always been in some type of activity/sport/competitive scenario. I was a gymnast for 10 + years and after quitting quickly began my journey into the land of the iron. Along the way, I have done martial arts, football, diving, and pole vaulting. After quitting gymnastics, I was a ripped 155lbs but throughout my hard work and dedication, I was able to get up to about 185lbs. I decided I just wanted to be huge so I started pounding weight gainers and eating everything under the sun and it wasn't long until I hit 230lbs. I definately enjoyed the amount of iron I could move in the gym but didn't like my look or the way I felt. I gained too much fat along the way. Now I am back down to around 180-185 lbs....I fluctuate. Unfortunately I can't eat everything I want to like I use to.....my waistline quickly let's me know but God did bless me with a better than normal metabolism so I don't have to watch it too close. Just recently, I have discovered the world of crossfit. It is definately some legit stuff and it helps me push things to the edge. Due to the 26 hours I am taking this semester in school, it is hard form me to get in all my hobby's/passions. Here are my measurements......
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: today, 183 lbs
Waist: 33 in at the bellybutton
Arms: L- 17.25 R-17.5 in
Chest: About 47.5 in
Quads: L-23 R-22.5 in at mid thigh
BF: probably about 10-12%
My goal for this stack is to lose a few %BF and maintain my weight. I would definately like to increase my size and increase the weight I can push in the gym but I know that will be hard to do while loosing weight.....but let's see what we can do.
Ok.....my workouts might seem sporadic. I am the type who likes to listen to their body and let it determine what I am gonna do that day. If I am just not feeling it then I won't do what I had planned. Also, I still have a passion for gymnastics so I will throw in workouts here and there but for the purposes of this log, I am gonna try to keep those to a min. I might throw in a few crossfit WODS, maybe hot yoga, use the EFX rings a little, and or some p90X but here is what I have laid out so far.....A mix of heavy weights and high intensity EDT workouts.
Either a 5 x 5 or a 4 x 6-8
Mon: AM Cardio
Fri: AM Cardio PM Legs/Calves
Sat: AM Cardio PM Shoulders/Traps
Sun: AM Cardio PM Arms
Mon: AM Cardio
Fri: AM Cardio PM Shoulders/Traps
Sat: AM Cardio PM Arms
Sun: AM Cardio PM either gymnastics/yoga/p90x/crossfit/efx rings workout
My least favorite ! Ok, so with my God blessed genetics I don't have to diet too hardcore. As of late I have done quite a bit of reading and definately like the Paleo way of nutrition. I have been doing it off and on and think it is great if you can stick with it. If any of ya'll don't know what paleo is then look up robb wolf and listen to some of his podcasts on the topic. Basically, it is a high fat, high protein and low to no carb diet (other than from veggies or fruit). I am following an unweighed paleo diet which I will keep track of what I eat just not specific macro breakdowns.....If I feel I wanna pull in my waistline even more then maybe I will start counting macro's but as of now, I just don't have that much time.
Finally, I wanna give a shout out to Molecular Nutrition for giving me this opportunity to try out their products and really put them to the test. Also, I wanna thank APS too for letting me try out some of their pre-workout products. I am excited to see if these products can help me reach my goals. I am not affiliated or know anyone from either of these companies. If you want an unbiased log that you can follow along with then this is it. If I don't like something or didn't think it worked, I will post that. Also, pics and measurements don't lie and I will be posting before and after pics/meausrements so hold tight and lets get this party started!!!!!!
I am sure I am forgetting stuff and this is my second go around at typing the start up to my log so getting tired and cranky so it is off to bed. I will post pics tomorrow but I will leave you with this beautiful site!!!!! Thanks again to Molecular Nutrition and APS.....looking forward to this opportunity!!!! Please let me know if there is anything I need to add or do to my log. I am gonna see if I can figure out how to get some vid's going too!!!!!!
