MidwestBeast Keeps on Cutting with LG's Topical 7-Keto (Sponsored Beta Log)
MWB here again with another sponsored log. You can currently catch me still logging some Creatine Nitrate and Nitrozine from APS, though it's not required any more due to a few bumps in the road (but JudgementDay was so kind as to hook me up, that I just gotta keep it goin for that guy).
Anywho, back to business - I was lucky enough to be one of 5 chosen to log a beta bottle of LG's Topical 7-Keto. Details are as follows:
6 sprays = 1 serving = 25mg
48 servings / bottle
2 servings / day = 24 days of use
I will start in the morning after morning cardio and my shower. I'll be dosing 1 serving on each side of my obliques / lower abs.
I'm currently in a bit of a maintenance mode, though I'm cutting. Start of the new year will be when I go balls out on things and with the holidays coming up and traveling between states and doing a lot of driving, I'm good on my nutrition, but I'm leaving a bit of wiggle room.
I'm also currently on my 2nd week of no stimulants, which will run until the start of the new year to get somewhere right around 4 weeks off.
Typical day of my diet looks like:
7 AM: Meal 1 (after fasted cardio): egg white omelette and 2 pieces whole grain toast with natural peanut butter
9:30 AM: Meal 2: 2 cans tuna
12:00 PM: 96/4 1/2 lb. burger w/ 2 pieces whole grain bread
3:00 PM: 2 pieces whole grain bread, chicken
workout @ 4:30
6:30 PM: ~60g whey isolate ~20 minutes post workout
7:30 PM: meat, little healthy fat
9:30 PM: casein shake
Wednesday: Delts / Traps
Thursday: 2-a-day cardio
Sunday: 2-a-day cardio
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask them. For more information on me, check out my profile. For more photos, check out my bodyspace (same name).
~15%bf (upper abs and obliques visible; trouble spots for holding are lower back and lower abs and slight love handles).
Last I'd checked, arms are 19" flexed, thighs 27" or so.
Let's do this

Okay, well my run has come to an end and let me just say that this product lived past my initial expectations.
I ended up running this product at a little ways over a month and it was actually my first transdermal product. I was a little worried about having to deal with dry time, application, etc. For those reasons, I'd actually put off using transdermals because of that. It was simple to spray, didn't have a foul odor (didn't smell "good" but it smelled about the same as spraying aloe vera on after a sunburn), and it dried almost instantly. I actually kept it upstairs instead of with my other supplements and I'd just put it on as soon as I got out of the shower and it would be dry before I'd dress.
I'd say its effectiveness is great, too. I didn't "feel" any mood changes like others reported, but I've made sure to limit stress and other factors that would increase cortisol release.
As far as overall "fat loss" it's hard for me to weigh in. I've encountered some issues along the way here and I'm actually going to be getting some bloodwork done in the following days to hopefully pin point the culprit(s). I can say that I did feel tighter using this product, though.
You can see in an earlier post how I rated some areas asked by LG33.
Bottom line is I would recommend this to anyone, I hope it does in fact make it to market, and I will purchase it.
Much love to the entire LG team and LG33 in particular for the selection to log this.

I will follow along. I am very, very interested in a topical 7-keto product. Looking forward to seeing how this works out for you!

12-15-10: Day 1
Slept in an extra hour this morning instead of hitting my typical AM cardio (because I hammered legs hard last night and wanted to give them extra rest).
Applied 6 sprays on each side of the lower obliques and sides of lower abs after my shower.
I'll say that it dried very quickly, which is nice. I didn't have to waste much time on waiting around before I could put a shirt on (I waited maybe 2 minutes and probably didn't even have to wait that long).
Delts/Traps workout to follow this evening.

12-15-10: Delts / Traps
No morning cardio since yesterday was leg day. Weighed in this morning just under 235 (and that was actually after drinking my liter of water and before using the bathroom).
Diet was pretty much on point all day, except for lunch. It was our potluck after a staff meeting and so things were pretty crazy. I was allowing myself to have that one meal, as well as Christmas Eve dinner - aside from that, everything will be tightened down.
Knowing I'd be doing that, I preceded lunch with 2 Need2Sling and 2 P-Slin (~30 minutes before).
Smith Machine Military Press (bar in front): 80x15 / 120x15 / 170x13 / 190x13 / 140x15
Seated Bent-Over Rear Delt DB Side Lateral Raises: 95's x 15 / 95's x 15 / 95's x 15 / 95's x 15
Cable Side Laterals: 80x12 / 80x12 / 90x12 / 90x12
Nautilus Seated Press: 210x12 / 230x12 / 240x10 / 250x6
Smith Machine Shrugs (bar in front): 290x12 / 340x12 / 370x12 / 390x12
Smith Machine Upright Rows: 90x12 / 110x10
Smith Machine Solo Shrugs (bar on side): 110x12
Workout felt great. Was really digging the overhead press machine and didn't think I'd be able to go that high on weight since I'd already done military press on the Smith machine.
My arms looked ridiculous during this one - really dry and cutting up all over (had some nice veins in the delts showing up, too - would be even more visible if I weren't freckled lol).
Tomorrow is a fasted cardio session upon rising and another session in the evening. Good thing I've got my own treadmill now, since we're supposed to get snow shortly and then up to an inch of ice over it (also glad work was already canceled for tomorrow lol).

Slept in a bit, but still started the day off as usual: 1 liter of water (popped 1 cap of ERASE) and hit fasted cardio for 30 minutes. Drank 2 servings of BC+EAA throughout.
Meal 1 followed immediately (as soon as I cooked it).
About to hit cardio session #2 in a bit.
Tomorrow is Chest.

Cardio session #2 was 40 minutes doing 2-minute intervals on the treadmill (varying incline and speed). Got the heart rate up rather nice and a decent little sweat.
12-17-2010, 03:28 PM
Incline Bench: 155x12 / 205x12 / 235x12 / 265x6 / 225x12
Cable Flys (high pulley): 120x12 / 120x12 / 120x12 / 120x12
Cable Flys (low pulley): 80x12 / 80x12 / 80x12 / 80x12
Solo Cable Fly Stretch (low pulley): 50x12 / 50x12 / 50x12 / 60x12
Dips: Bodyweight x 20
Worked with a quicker tempo than usual today. Decent workout when it was all said and done, but not my best chest day at all. Incline bench wasn't going as well as it had been and I was gonna go for a new PR this week, but alas, today was not the day.
Once I got to the cables, it was pretty good. Good hard pump and veins were going nuts in my delts again.
Skipped morning cardio because my stomach didn't feel too good this morning. Most likely will try to pick up another cardio session this evening.
Tomorrow is Back.
12-18-2010, 11:08 AM
20 minutes of fasted cardio (intervals on the treadmill) in the books.
Back is on tap for later this afternoon or evening.
Weighed in at 231.4 this morning. Lowest I've hit in a while. I'm really excited about my upcoming New Year's cut with the success I'm already getting now. Diet hasn't changed all that much and I even had a feast on Wednesday and I'm losing more now than I had been - I attribute the morning cardio (and cardio being split from weights) to this as a major contributor.
I also haven't worked abs directly in about 4 months and they're still pretty sharp - not as great as they were, but I was also 208 when I stopped working them. As soon as the new year hits, I'll be hitting them twice a week.
I spent some inventory time, put in an order for a couple more things and did the math on laying out my cut last night - it will be nothing short of epic...I absolutely cannot wait.
When I head back to my hometown in the next few days, I'll be using the local YMCA as my gym and I plan on doing some swimming for cardio again - been forever.
Needless to say I'm pretty stoked.

It's pretty awesome for a natural cutting stack, if I do say so myself

My stack is pretty ridiculous, but I'll have it all up in a new log once the new year hits.
12-19-2010, 12:23 PM
20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill, fasted, this morning
230.4 lbs this morning
This is normally a 2x cardio day, but I may be hitting arms a day early so I can drive tomorrow and only worry about a second cardio session at the end of my 7-hour drive. No decision made yet; I'll update.
