    AH/AL Cycle


    A little about me
    Before April 22nd 2011, my birthday, I hadn't hit the gym in well over 2 years. I was looking in the mirror and decided enough is finally enough. Couldn't really stand what I saw and made the decision to get a better, healthier, lifestyle. After reading numerous logs of AH/AL I ordered some for myself. Knowing that it was out of stock for at least a month, I figured that would give me a few weeks to get a base together. I've hit the gym 5x a week, since that date. The AH/AL came in the mail 2 days ago and I am super stoked to see the results.

    I will be taking 2 AH & AL x 2 per day, for 6 weeks.

    My stats
    25 years old
    5'9
    172 lbs
    12.5% bf

    Goal
    Bringing out my abs and obliques while also lowering body fat %.

    Workouts
    Typically I am not able to workout on Saturday or Sunday due to long work hours and the gym closing early on Sunday.

    Monday - Chest
    At gym abs (4 exercises x 4 sets) *weighted resistance
    At home abs (4 exercises x 3 sets to failure)

    Tuesday - Biceps and Shoulders
    At gym abs (1 exercise x 8 sets)
    At home abs (4 exercises x 3 sets to failure)

    Wednesday - Back and Triceps
    At gym abs (4 exercises x 4 sets) *weighted resistance
    At home abs (4 exercises x 3 sets to failure)

    Thursday - Legs
    At gym abs (1 exercise x 8 sets)
    At home abs (4 exercises x 3 sets to failure)

    Friday - sauna and cardio (20 min stair climber)
    At gym abs (4 exercises x 4 sets) *weighted resistance
    At home abs (4 exercises x 3 sets to failure)

    Saturday & Sunday - off

    Diet
    My main focus is protein. I will eat around 300-400g of protein per day. Not sure my caloric or fat intake...

    I have uploaded photos from April 22nd (first day back in the gym) and today. I created a gallery in my profile called 6 week cycle.

    2 AH & AL 9 am. 2 more of each 6 hrs later.

    Motivation
    Through the roof. Excited to start a new stack

    Libido
    Nothing to report right now

    Strength
    Feeling pretty strong and not tiring easy today

    Energy
    Didn't tire easily at all. Never really got winded. I typically take 2 minute breaks between sets but decided I am going to try taking 30-60 sec breaks in hopes of increasing fat loss.

    Agression, Acne, Hair loss
    None.

    Water retention
    A little more vascular than normal

    Comments
    Had decent sized pumps today. Didn't sweat very much but I am not a big sweater in general. Great workout for first day...

    crazy thing is, i've never had a solid diet either. through most of the last 2 years i've eaten fast food on a very regular basis. i feel hopeful about this cycle, for sure! also, i'll never let myself go like that again either

    about an hour after leaving the gym my nose started to bleed. i figure this is coincidence but maybe not?

    also, i've been peeing much more than normal since starting this cycle, although i am basically drinking the same amount of water.

    that's all for today.

    Raise your water intake and check your BP.

    At least a gallon, but if you are urinating more then you need to add more water regardless.

    any reason why you went with 6 weeks at 2 pills each instead of 4 weeks at 3 pills each?

    no particular reason. i kind of thought 2 extra weeks on cycle would be more effective than an extra pill per day. am i incorrect in that assumption? i could always up my dosage...

    Great motivation today

    Libido
    High

    Strength
    Higher than normal

    Energy
    Great energy today. I am really enjoying these 30-60 sec rests between sets. It is keeping my heart rate up yet I am not TOO winded to have a solid workout

    Agression, Acne, Hair loss
    None.

    Water retention
    Spotted a few new veins today

    Comments
    I don't have a workout partner so I typically only lift with db's on chest. I was able to get 75 lb db's 10x on my first set (I usually get 6-7), then on sets 2-4 I got them at least 5x per set, doing drop sets with 60 lb db's...so my strength and energy are definitely up some.

    I am wondering if I up my dosage to 3x per day, if i'd see more progress than the 2x per day. Thoughts?

    You're getting noticeable results. I'd stay there until you stagnate.

    Had a great workout in general. I am enjoying the results of the AH/AL so far. Not getting winded although I am taking quicker breaks in between and able to do more than I typically do is a nice combo!

    Regarding the nosebleed- When the weather gets warmer and the air gets drier, sometimes its enough to dry out the skin and cause a nosebleed. Dont know where you live, but thought you may want to hear that.

    I started getting nosebleeds at my work and they gave me a vaseline type of product that you just put up in there to keep things from drying up. Good to hear it hasnt hit you again. Any updates?
