As always, the first thing to do here is give a much-deserved thank you to JD, Steve, and APS for giving me the opportunity to do another sponsored log for them. Not only that, but they added in some samples and an entire bottle of their; very cool.
In the past, I have logged along with both and then for APS, and my experience with all of these products was great. I ran the CN stacked with the Nitrozine as my pre-workout selection during my downtime from stims and it was a great experience; definitely beat my previous attempts with and or other little concoctions.
I am also currently logging Controlled Labs' new intra-workout (as with all of my sponsored logs/reviews, the link can be found in my profile). I'm not going to give a lengthy breakdown of my past, as it can be found in most of my other logs, but I'll share a few things. I'm currently focusing on cutting. I've recently found out I have hypothyroidism, which I blame as a major culprit in the lack of fat-loss, though my doctor seems to disagree (needless to say, I'm in the search for a new doctor), which would give me no clue as to what the cause is, as my training and nutrition are spot on after all the years I've taken to learn and understand these things.
Anywho I've just come off of a one-week stretch of severe calorie-restriction. I actually felt great and even set a PR on deads while on that diet. I am in the process of reformulating my upcoming diet as we speak and I'll post it once I finalize it. It will likely be a very drastic carb and cal cycle to hopefully keep my body guessing and give me some chance to actually lose.
I work a 5 day split and a 2 week cycle:
Week 1: Max-OT training
Week 2: high intensity training; 60 seconds rest between sets
Currently sitting right around 224 pounds, give or take. I don't care about the number on the scale as much as the look in the mirror, but I do know there is plenty of fat I want gone. We'll see what the potential increase in test will do to aid me in my goals. I go as hard as I can, so hopefully this baby shines for me and helps me out.
Tonight will be an arms workout (high intensity week).
