    I think Layne Norton or someone like that covered that idea, and said that Muscle Protein Synthesis happens with spikes, so a constant flow of aminos wouldn't help that. BCAA are best used ~5-10g, ~1hr before meals I think was his conclusion. For preventing catabolism, I'm not sure.

    Thanks for the input. So it looks like drinking a amino shake a couple times a day may not be a bad idea but constantly sipping on aminos all day long will be worthless

    I will be looking into what Layne Norton said.. gonna try and google to find that article.... thanks guys!

    This is what I've been doing before breakfast and after Post workout meal and 2 other random meals. Only time I sip on BCAA-EAAs is during workouts. I take in aprox. 40 grams a day. Might be a over kill tho lol

    My buddy got some samples of fat Smack and said the energy was clean from it, said he really enjoyed the samples. We were on nights at the time, so he picked up a bottle and ran it. I'll check back with him and see what his final verdict is on it.
    You tried fasting bud? Which idea are you speaking of? I have played around with so many already. I keep adjusting what I do and really havent stayed committed to one approach to see how it goes. My latest is posted in this log in the previous page I believe. It is a mix of BCAAs and EAAs with some taurine and fish oil.

    As for the Fat Smack, the energy is exactly how he describes it. I am enjoying it thus far and going to start experimenting with raising the amount of caps and see if it make much difference and how the energy feels from that

    Narrative
    Worked today. Woke up late and didnt have time to do the complete workout, I ended up skipping grip and core. Also I didnt have any food left over just a chicken breast so I threw a bunch of eggs on the stove to boil and had hard boiled eggs and chicken breast all day! Every meal looked like this


    With the exception of post workout which was the same but with some quiona too. It gets old super fast but gets the job done and super cheap, quick and easy.

    3/12

    Workout

    NONE

    Narrative
    Had my cheat meal today!!! Went out and got some take out from a resturant for dinner. Ribs, sweet potatoe and baked potatoe.. got it from texas roadhouse if anyone is familiar with the resturant chain. Also on the way home I stopped at a licquor store and picked up a bottle of wine for my wife, she had been wanting some and couldnt drink any for the past 9 months due to the pregnancy, while at the licquor store I got me a some hard cider. Being that I am now trying to avoid grains, and most beer is made from grains I thought I was sh!t out of luck but then a buddy of mine told me about this hard cider. Apparently it is made from apples, the one I got was from granny smith apples and wasn't half bad at all



    3/13

    Workout

    Notes
    Started adding mesomorph to my preworkout. My goal was to take solely the Fat Smack by itself for the first week to guage the stim of it. I took half a scoop of mesomorph before my workout today

    I actually felt really good the whole time I was doing that. The little things, like dead lifting the mower out of the ditch because the wife got it stuck again, didn't leave me sore for a couple of days like before. I think it plays a good roll, it's just not finacially feasible.

  11. If you like pairs, try the pair woodchuck. Log is lookin' solid bud!! I've added wood choppers back into my mix as well, in addition to also doing them in reverse with a low pulley. Definitely some innovative movements in your workouts, I like it!!

    Thats all i do now, I bring a gallon jug into work and mix in BC+Eaa's into it and drink it through out the day (approx 30-35grms) to include the gym time.. like HTS said, when in a calorie deficit, it really helps in preventing muscle breakdown/loss.. its a preventive role..

    I swear by LG's Kiwi/Strawberry... the grape did take a turn, but the Kiwi is re-flavored and i swear by it..profile, taste, and cost cant be beat IMO

    I tired it but only for a brief period. I didnt think it helped much so I cut it short but I may have stopped too soon before giving it a honest chance. I just recently found some bulk BCAAs for cheap and when they come in I will try this again, hopefully the taste wont be bad but since its bulk it probably will be

    I mainly use my bc+eaa when Im fasting (7 scoop shakes 3x a day) or I take 2-3 scoops right before bed with some Na-ALA/yellowgold mix.

    Do you think it really makes a difference when your sipping it constantly during the day?

    and you are correct that kiwi/strawberry is freaking delicious!!! Way better than my old EAA mix (primal EAA by primaforce)

  14. Just wanted to share with you guys what I picked up yestarday

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Got me some chains. One of them is thick and the rest are thinner but longer. They are both connected to these tow hooks, I will prolly cut the chains off the hooks and weight/measure them seperately to see how much they weigh.

    I am looking into what you use to get the rust off of them. I dont really mind the rust but I was thinking of wrapping a bunch around my chest (like a ammo belt across shoulders) and using that as a weight vest and dont want to get rust all over all my hoodies. There is a product that is always advertised on daytime TV (ACR or something like that) I might give that a shot. Anyone got any ideas for rust removal?

    As for the left over hooks after I cut the chains off.. since they are pretty heavy on their own I am gonna come up with some way to use them. May ever use the hook and tie it to the end of a barbell, should be some interesting resistence with that thing swaying around during a squat

  15. Can't help you with the chains but I lol'd at the hard cider. They can be a bit sweet but are good every once in awhile. I actually have a bottle that's been in te fridge for some time. I'm a big craft beer guy which isn't good to my stomach.
    Just inject.

  16. Yup, the make a pair version of woodchuck, no joke. If I get time, I'll take a snapshot of one. Neat idea with the chains, a buddy of mine uses them like stretchy bands, and lets them dangle from a barbell. Pretty much the same principle, to increase the workload at the end of the movement.

  17. PALEO MEALS FTW




    butter
    1 pound 90% Ground Bison
    5 Eggs
    1 Avocado

    add eggs last

  18. Looks like the makings of a great breakfast burrito! I used to use these for my EAA consumption. They tasted very good too.

    The cider wasnt bad at all. I am not a big beer drinker anyway, when I do occasionally drink it is usually mixed drinks but I havent had a drink in forever! Isnt really too helpful with my goals, but I do plan on going out and sort of celebrating once I do hit my goals. Kind of like a reward for me

    I might do a dynamic squat day with them. I was wondering if I should make an actual box to squat on or if I could just use the end of my bench. Figured I would go on the eliteFTS site and see how high their boxes are and maybe throw something together

    Wrap them in big lettuce leaves and top with some salsa or franks red hot

    Mmmm.. I just woke up and am thinking now of making the same thing

    I have NEVER eaten avocado before but want to start. I was thinking of chopping one up and throwing it into a food processor with a couple spoonfuls of salsa and then blending together. Use it as a topping for eggs, burgers or chicken? Not too sure though?

    Anton do you do eat cheese?

    So, I'm assuming the caffeine in the Fat Smack isn't all that bad? I'm pretty sensitive to stims myself...for instance....OXYEPRO @ 1 cap gives me the jitters pretty bad, more than 1 and I feel like I'm going to vomit.

    You can try CLR for the chains, but they look like they have heavy surface rust...so I'm not 100% sure it will work. Then paint them. If you want to spend the extra money, look into powder coating, it's really tough.

    Good luck.

    easiest way to get the avocado out: cut it right through the middle and split the 2 halves so you can dig the seed out. then use a spoon to dig out the avocado from the halves. mixes very good with eggs IMO

    i do eat cheese, i consider it my cheat food so i dont eat it all the time. muenster is my favorite cheese. see my problem is that once i get my hands on some cheese i wont stop eating it, especially if im 420'd

    Heres my breakfast


    As for the cheese here is something I made once that was absolutely delicious!!!

    Basically you slice the pepper in half and gut the seeds.

    Fill with cream cheese

    Put halves back together

    Wrap with bacon

    And place in oven on a cookie sheet

    My bacon strips were pretty long so they ended up wrapping around the pepper twice and as a result I don't think the bacon cooked fully in some parts. I should have used only a half slice of bacon when wrapping but then that would have meant less bacon and that was unacceptable to me!
