I want to thank Taurus Nutrition for the chance to run this and of course my wife for bouncing off the floor and making this all possible.
Sorry Hun!Okay Down To Business!!!!
I am really excited to try this product. It has a nice ingredient line up and will be my only source of major stimulants so I am banking on the thermogenic effect I know these ingredients to have to help me in my quest to become ripped. I plan on getting down as low as 6% maybe not before the end of this log but I will definitely be well on my way. I will be commenting on all of the major factors considered in a pre workout product; Stim Effect, Pump, Tingle Factor, Focus, Aggression, and of course vascularity.
NUTRITION I am currently running a Lean Gains eating it is an Intermittent Fasting that has a 16 hour fasting period and an 8 hour eating window. It is working extremely well for me and gives me a lot more freedom of food choices so maintaining it will almost be effortless. I have been following this for about 8 weeks now and have cut recomped aggressively.
I will be logging in detail about my training, and nutrition as well. Good discussion is encouraged here.
TRAINING - My current split is 3 lift days a week alternating between an upper body and lower body / core workout.
Upper body - 12 Reps Tempo is controlled lifting about 3 seconds per rep.
Flat Bench - 2 warm up 2 work sets
Chins Grip Pull Downs - 2 warm up 2 work sets
Standing Shoulder Press - 1 work set
EZ Bar or BB Curl - 1 work set
Lower Body - 12 Reps Tempo is controlled lifting about 3 seconds per rep, except for trap bar dead lifts those will be 2-3 warm ups and a 20 rep rest pause style set, not taking more than 10-sh seconds max. I am working towards a goal of 405x20 in the next 12-15 months. If I maxed out at it now I would say I could get 325-335 x20 but I am going to move up gradually and give my joints and tendons to get used to the pounding so I will be starting that at 285x20. Should be a fun ride and this is just the beginning of that journey. They will also be done a little separated from the rest of the workout. I am doing them at home so they are either before my workout on Saturdays or during week days they are after work.
Trap Bar Dead Lift 20 Rep Rest Pause Set
Leg Press - 2 warm ups, 2 work sets -Feet low on platform to hit quads more.
Calve Press - 2 Sets
Weighted Crunch Machine or Draw Bridges - 3 sets
Now lets get WYKED!!!!
