Lets burn some fat for the summer transdermal style (with new Lipoburn) holmes!
Just to let everyone know who I am, I am a 22 year old ex-collegiate baseball player and now dedicated to bodybuilding. I just graduated and received my bachelors degree in pre-medical studies and am looking to go to medical school in a year or so. I have used any supplement you can name over the last three or so years and now am running the new version of Lipoburn by LG sciences.
I ran the last version of lipoburn and had moderate results with slightly less fat after the bottle, even though I was on a lean bulk. As the same with the last time, I will be using this product on my abdominal area and pecs to get rid of some fat there. Most of my training will be in the morning with the occasional afternoon/night session. I will be training for hypertrophy with 1 minute breaks between sets which I have been doing for the last 3 weeks. My average gym session is about 75-90 minutes long, and I will track this all during the log. Most of my training will be in the gym with the occasional park session and cardio is often done playing soccer 4-5 times a week.
The reformulated lipoburn contains theobromine for theophylline, which was in the last version and Raspberry Ketones which were previously not in the ingredient profile. Also, as in the first version, Glycyrrhetinic Acid is included and several absorption maximizing agents. This is a transdermal for those who don't know and the new version appears to be good for what is said to be at least 4 pumps a day 2 times daily and therefore good for 30 days.
Just finished up the erase/shift stack and had moderate results, with erase seeming to do more than shift
generic omega 3/6/9-6 caps/day with every 2 caps containing 900 mg omega 3
xtend BCAA's-12 gms a day
musclepharm assault preworkout
Received my bottle in the mail. Thamk you to the LG reps for allowing me to run this product with the new formula. Today I finished up a back and quad session that really beat me up along with my soccer cardio session in the afternoon. I will be posting my before pics from today online tomorrow when I can get my camera hooked up properly. According to my cheap BF clamps I am currently at around 10.5-11% BF. I can't wait to start using the lipoburn tomorrow for my chest and ab session I am hoping to see the fat melt away over the month from these areas.

Woke up at 7 am and I did not sleep well because of the heat. Either way, I finished my breakfast of steak whole grain bed. It was about 4 oz of steak and I usually have eggs before the gym but I cooked the steak last night so I could get to the gym earlier. I also had a Nature Valley bar 30 mins before I got to the gym because I am moving out of my house and had nothing else left. I mixed my preworkout and took a shower. After the shower I applied 4 pumps of lipoburn to my abs and pecs. It had the cool feeling of most transdermals and after 5 minutes, the white film from the lotion went away as it dried. I sometimes have a problem with shortness of breath with rasberry ketones but this did not happen today with lipoburn. I did 10 minutes of warm up cardio and got my heart rate into the 140's for most of the time. I then trained pecs, shoulders, tri's, traps and abs today.
Incline DB bench -1 min rest each set
warm up-100 lbsx10 reps
160x7 reps superset with another 8 reps at 100 lbs
flat db bench - 1 min rest between sets
170x8 with forced last reps

SS with 5 reps at 170 5 reps at 150 and 5 reps at 120 holding each for 5 secs on negative mvmt.
leg raise between smith machine BP 4 sets x 45 secs
smith machine BP
185 x 10 reps
185 x 10 reps
205 x 10 reps

front shrug-hold at top slow reps
warm up 15x135
275x10 superset with 90 lb shrug 1 45 in each hand
machine pec fly
not sure the weighs on my machine I think in KG
EZ bar triceps extension
Overall on Day 1 I did not notice a change in my heart rate or anything associated with lipoburn. I did notice an increase in sweating in the abdominal and pec area as my shirt was drenched and after the workout my abs looked great. I did notice an increase in energy also for a day that I did not sleep well.
After my workout I continued to move furniture outta my house and I built up a good sweat. Haven't had a ton to eat today though and I will have to pack on the calories tonight.
Second application went well today, applied on abs and pectoral area again. Dinner was a steak burrito with black beans. High calorie and high GI carbs so I took some cinnamon with it, and I have noticed that even walking around town my abs are sweatng more than normal

Woke up at 8 am after about 7 1/2 hours of good sleep. Breakfast was a 4 egg omelet with mozzerella cheese and 2 pieces of turkey bacon along with 2 pieces whole wheat bread and a protein shake with a cup of milk. I waited 30 mins after breakfast and drank my BCAA's and creatine along with my DAA preworkout. Applied 4 pumps of lipoburn to my abdominal area and even though it dried, a white film remained on my abs. It felt good as it went on and got me ready to go.
My workout day 2: legs and biceps
warmup 160 x 10
350x7 then 3 at 300 3 at 250 and 3 at 210
side planks 2 sets each side 1 min
smith machine squat
265x8 SS with 3 at 225 and 3 at 185
1 min break between each set with russian twist between each set
calf raises on leg press machine
220x10 SS with half reps quickly
EZ bar curl
70 x 12
35x10 forced last 2 reps each arm
Overall a great workout. I've never been so sweaty in my life although my back was sore after the deadlift. I was completely soaked and kept sweating even during biceps, I just wish I could build more strength and mass in my biceps as they have the most trouble growing. ITs hard to tell whether the addition of rasberry ketones to lipoburn has increased my uper body sweating or not, that I will determine in the future, but I feel great after the workout. Now its time to get some cardio in the afternoon.
06-23-2011, 03:49 PM
4 egg omelet on 2 whole wheat tortillas with mozzerella cheese and protein shake.
about 45 mins after breakfast took a shower, drank my preWO and applied 4 pumps of Lipoburn to abdomen and pecs. It rubbed in much better today I believe because I wasn't as sweaty as usual. No shortness of breath or anything so I felt good to go.
Got to the gym did 10 mins of preworkout cardio to get HR to 145.
all 1 min breaks
200x9 10th rep get halfway down and held
200x7 8th rep held
Cable rows-Not sure the weight
11th plate x10
Not too much of a sweat after my beginning back exercises but I did abs after this and I was well covered in sweat all over my upper body.
Ab crunch machine
190x8 SS at 150 and 130
155x10 SS with 115 x5 and 95x10
in between sets did weighted decline sit ups and yoga ball weighted crunches 4 sets, 2 of each
wide grip cable rows
2 sets 45 seconds of 6 inches
1 superset lat pulldowns-after 250 held for 4 secs on negative portion
overall I feel great, I haven't changed my training as I usually just do 10 minutes of warm up cardio. I don't wanna change it b/c I wanna see how this product works. OVerall, I notice more sweat but too early to determine effects of the new Lipoburn
06-23-2011, 09:31 PM
Good stuff. You have lower body fat than me so it will be interesting to see the effects of lipoburn on us both. You have solid abdominal definition. I'm jealous
06-23-2011, 10:11 PM
Yea I've had to work on my core because I have a fracture in my back, so I've had to maintain strength there for a few years, and my diet has been helping over the last year.
06-24-2011, 09:41 PM
Same morning as before, put on my new Lipoburn 20 minutes before my workout. 2 pumps on abs and 2 on my pecs. Did 10 minutes of preworkout cardio to get HR up to 150. Workout today was chest and triceps, with a few shrug sets in between other things.
1 min break between sets
BB bench press
warm up 135x10
235x8 SS with 185x10
decline DB press
DB incline press
160x7 SS with 130x5
smith machine back shrug
65x9 ss with 45x10
straight bar press down
12th plate x16
Overall today I had a very good chest sweat although I did not notice it systemically. Still the book is out since it is early but my bottle doesnt seem like its going to last the full month it states as I am done about 1/4th already. Didn't exactly eat the cleanest dinner as I had peking duck on flour tortillas and some Sczechuan Shrimp and chicken.
06-26-2011, 10:28 PM
Day 5: Legs
all exercises 1 minute rest
155x12 warm up
Leg press cybex machine
unilateral leg extension
75x10 each leg 3 sets
calf raises on legg press machine
did abs between each set of leg press 50 reps of 1/2 decline crunches
Overall I applied to abs 2 pumps ad 1 pump to pec and during lifting I had a really good sweat all over but mainly on my abs. I have noticed more sweating all over the my body however. The littlest bit of exercise outside in the sun makes me sweat everywhere, including places you don't wanna really. I started the log at 195 lbs and I am at about the same running a recomp, so hopefully I can maintain weight and put on some LBM. I think the best thing about using this supplement so far is the look of my abs post-WO even if I dont do abs, they have a more defined and drier look
06-27-2011, 12:54 PM
Interesting points on the sweating. I've ALWAYS sweated easy so it's extremely difficult for me to notice changes in that regard. I'll try and keep an eye on it though and see if I notice anything.
06-28-2011, 12:07 PM
Day 6: back and quick biceps to finish
Applied the new Lipoburn around the same time as my preWO, 30 minutes before my workout. I have noticed that I do sweat more when I take my preWO along with the Lipoburn.
Did a quick 5 minute cardio to get HR up to 140. All exercises done with 1 minute break between sets
Bent over rows
Leg extensions free weights
90x10 to warm up
210x5 with forced reps after 5th rep SS with each weight I did before this as long as I could hold 1 rep
135x10 to warm up
Finished with HIIT cardio for 10 mins 35 sec sprint 25 sec off
Overall I had a very deep sweat and am starting to notice a drier look after a work out. I would reccomend taking this product with some form of preworkout stimulant as at least for me it helps me sweat more and increase my HR more.
Day 7 Chest
Didn;t do any preworkout cardio because the gym was packed. Wish I could have because I did not build as good of a sweat. That could also have been because I ran out of preWO.
DB incline press
BB bench press
185x8 for 4 sets
weighted crunch machine
190x8 SS with 170, 150, 130x5
weighted decline sit ups 2 sets with 35 lbs
Close grip bench press
185x10 for 2 sets
EZ bar twists for abs
90x10 each side
smith machine incline press
Pec flys on machine
HIIT sprints for 10 mins on bike for cardio
I did not notice quite the sweat today. I kept up the intensity as before and maybe because I did not consume as much caffeine I did not have the sweat, although I did get a few headaches and was dizzy for a bit after my incline press. My abs did not look quite as nice as yesterday even with the pump, but my pecs looked alot better and had more vascularity in the area and a better pump. At Day 7 I am almost half done the bottle of Lipoburn and I have only been running 3 pumps 2 x daily, which is less than recomended.
06-29-2011, 08:51 PM
Day 8: mixed bag of treats
Today I did the usual of going to the gym in the morning and after the gym played some soccer for about 45 mins. Nothing cardio-wise but I got good cardio from my workout today. As usual 3 pumps of lipoburn 30 mins. before the gym. I got the usual cool feeling as I spread it around my abdominal area and on a portion of my pecs. The gym today was a mixed bag as I wanted to hit my glutes and my triceps. Im all outta my preworkout which sucks but it gave me a good piece of info with my workout.
135x15 warm up
315x5 SS with 225x10 and 135x15
Machine leg press
At this point I was in a mean sweat and every machine of bench I touched was soaked.
I mixed in triceps bar push downs in between sets of leg presses and then continued with
Hamstring curls unilateral
I also mixed in 4 sets of calf raises with a SS at the end.
I noticed today that lipoburn is enhanced with caffeine, but it is not needed to build up a good sweat. If you want to be completely covered in sweat all over your body the addition of a dose of at least 100 mg of caffeine can help. On another note I am noticing more vascularity in my upper pecs where I have been applying the new Lipoburn. I have not taken a BF test yet and will wait to the end, but this cycle is looking promising.
06-30-2011, 05:48 PM
Bit late to this, forgot that we were doing logs and not just a before/final review
Training looks intense, but geared for fat loss. You know what you're doing, good stuff.
Glad to hear that 1 week you're seeing some nice definition in the abdominals, but that's also a testament to your diet and training.
Being half way done with the bottle is odd, i'll look in to that for you.
06-30-2011, 09:35 PM
Thanks, It is odd considering I have only been doing 3 pumps twice a day. I really do like the thermogenic feeling I get from this product. When I take rasberry ketones orally I usually get an out of breath feeling from doing low impact activities and it was frustrating because my heart would skip a beat too, but with this so far I have been just golden.
Day 9: Back and quick abs day
all 1 min break hypertrophy training
Got to the gym in the afternoon today so I applied my first dose of Lipoburn around noon. Felt cool as always and spread well because it was not overly hot today.
Did 10 mins of warm up cardio to get HR to 155
Lat pulldowns130x12 warm up
190x10kinda dead today thats why I like hitting the gym in the AM
bent over rows
155x10 form kinda slipped because of my bad back so I may stick to this later on in my workout from now on.
190x8 SS with 5x160,140,120
DB bent over row
did 5 sets of wide grip cable rows and close grip but the machine doesnt have markings so I have no idea what the weight is, but with the wide grip I set a PR today.
Cardio 15 mins and kept HR over 160 entire time
The left side of my abs are coming out even nicer now with the lipoburn, and the right side s slightly behind. This is from baseball thugh and how the sport involves twisting in one way. Ever since I have been young, my left abdominals have been stronger and larger. The slight loss of pec fat is what is making me very happy though, I hate having just a bit in my lower pecs.
07-03-2011, 06:27 PM
Day 10 Pecs and Tri's
Got to the gym around 10 am after applying my Lipoburn around 9 am after my breakfast. I was a little down on energy because I did not sleep well, and I felt it in my strength but not my energy.
BB Bench press
did russian twists between sets with a 1 min break
DB incline press
DB decline press
4 sets of 8 at 150
5th plate each sidex12 for 3 sets
cardio:jogged home from the gym which is about 1.7 miles.
My abs are starting to come out well from this product, and I like the sweat I gewt in the gym from it. I will be on vacation for the rest of the holiday, so I will be back in the gym and using lipoburn on Wednesday. I am keeping my diet however
07-03-2011, 10:19 PM
07-06-2011, 05:08 PM
Day 11:Back From Vacation: Back, Abs and Biceps
all 1 minute breaks
wide grip Lat Pull downs
Bent Over rows
Behind the neck pull downs
14thx10 SS w/ 12thx5 and 10x10
Weighted Crunch MAchine
Also included some 6 inches and weighted v ups between sets of other things
BB Bicep curls
4 sets 10 reps 65 lbs
Finished with cable rope hammer curls 2 sets at 8th plate
Cardio 10 mins preWO to get Hr to 150
PostWO cardio 10 mins kept HR at 160 consistently
Overall strength was down today but energy was not, possibly because of no preWO powder and break from lifting. LAck of carbs also may have hurt as I only has about 40 gms for breakfast and I usually have about 65-70 gms.
The lipoburn I applied today gave me a ridiculous sweat and when I finished I had a nice vascular look on my pecs. I have noticed as Rosie did too that the cream becomes harder to rub in towards the end of the bottle, possibly due to settling.
07-07-2011, 07:53 PM
Put on my lipoburn today at around 8:30 and noticed again it took longer to rub in, but I could cover more area with the suggested 4 pumps (Abs, obliques, and pecs).
Got to the gym and did 10 mins preWO cardio to get HR to 145
200x6 SS with 140 x 5
95x8 for 4 sets
Smith machine incline press
BB behind back shrug
Decline BB press
Did 8 sets of different tricep presses but dont know weights cuz they arent listed
Cardio 10 mins on bike kept HR at 155+
Overall today I had a heavy sweat on my abs and chest during my whole workout then during cardio my entire body was covered. Didn't look as vascular but overall I feel as if my abs and pecs are losing fat.
07-07-2011, 09:56 PM
How much do you have left? I still have quite a bit left, the product is lasting pretty long. 4 pumps twice a day (one for each pec, and two to cover the abs). I know Rosie went through hers quickly, but I think she put it on her legs as well. I would estimate I have at least three weeks left.
07-07-2011, 10:28 PM
I have a little less than a 1/4th and ive been running 3 pumps 2 times daily. The bottom of the bottle is lasting longer though possibly due to settling
07-08-2011, 07:49 PM
Day 13 Legs Biceps and Forearms
Today I got the the gym late because I had to do some roofing in the AM. I applied Lipoburn around 10 AM and started working and around 11 I was dripping and my front was really slimy. I have noticed this a little more because of the humidity it has been harder to rub the lotion in and I sweat a ton but stay slimy. I applied my 2nd dose around 3 and hit the gym at 3:30, this time it went on well
Squats-about 1-2 min breaks
405x.75 -needed help with rep to keep back straight, almost there though maybe next time
Leg pres machine
Calf raises leg press machine
4 sets of 200 lbs x 15, 14, 12, 10
Did abs-weighted plank, reverse crunches, twists etc
Forearm 9 innings of hell
Has a very heavy sweat during the beginning of my workout and I kept dripping until near the end. Starting to see really good definition especially after my workout.
07-09-2011, 09:41 PM
Day 14: Back
Cardio 10 minutes get HR to 145
Lat Pull Down Neutral Grip
120x12 warm up

SS with smith machine BB row
dont know the weight

Cardio 15 mins
5 on treadmill at 7 min mile pace and 10 min sprint on bike
Overall, not much to comment on today besides a heavy abdominal sweat as usual
07-11-2011, 06:45 PM
Days 15/16-getting very close to finishing the bottle, have had some very good results and I notice a large increase in vascularity. I may use a portion of my second bottle on my arms to try to get the veins popping.
Same results except now with the hot weather I am constantly soaked on my front side. I do have some problem putting on after a hot shower as I remain sweaty and it doesn't rub in well, so I like to apply in the AM before my gym session.
Worked pecs shoulders and did a heavy HIIT cardio on day 15. I was absolutely drenched and noticed I looked great when I was done.
Day 16-Quads bi's and tri's
I had a similar experience today as yesterday. I was completely drenched but did not do any cardio. I didnt log any weights really because I was on different machines etc.
07-12-2011, 07:24 PM
Scraping the bottom of the lipoburn bottle now, it has about a day left now. As usual applied before gym.
Did 5 minbs of cardio got HR to 140
Bent over rows
SS with bent over row smith machine 135x15 hold at top
Behind neck pull down
DB bent over row single arm
Biceps were shot from yesterday and I lost my wrist straps so today sucked. Had an ok sweat till my cardio which was a 2 mile run with mixed sprints. Completely drenched when I got home, and as usual I needed a new shirt. For all looking to use lipoburn, beware youre gonna need a few shirts a day, you will sweat alot.
07-13-2011, 08:00 PM
Day 18-Last day of bottle 1-chest

07-13-2011, 09:34 PM
Im actually going to continue cuz I got hooked up by LG with another bottle, but I am going to do an after picture in a few days and log another bottle, and take afters from that too
07-13-2011, 09:44 PM
07-13-2011, 10:40 PM
Yea I believe in 2 weeks I may have made about 1%BF progress on a recomp. About the weight I started at, my arms have gotten larger by 2 inches though and my abs are a bit more cut, along with my pecs
07-18-2011, 08:18 AM
After pics, sorry for low quality, gonna get higher quality ones later today.
My overall review of the new Lipoburn.
I enjoyed my cycle of Lipoburn and had some good results with respect to vascularity and local fat reduction. I was hoping for a little more pec fat to dissappear, but my abdominal area looks sharper and more defined. I do not believe this is a product that someone who is 15% BF and above would use anywhere, but those in the 10% BF range and below to use in areas they want to get rid of thin layers of fat. I know some people said there was a problem with holding water due to this product but I did not see it. I also see improved vascularity in my upper pecs and shoulders due to use of this product there.

3Day 1 bottle 2; legs
The cream went on well in the AM, but not in the PM that well after my shower as I was sweaty and it did not absorb. Worked more on strength then low rest today and got my last set of deadlifts up 3 reps at 355. Still built up a good abdominal and chest sweat. Looking to get better looking after pics up soon, camera still broken
07-21-2011, 05:56 PM
Gonna update weekly for those who are following. This week I have noticed an increase in definition around my abs, and they seem to be protruding more, but the amount of fat/water in the area seems to be about the same. Today for the first time, when I applied the lipoburn I noticed a slight tingling effect which was pleasant. I am not sure if other have had this every application, but this was the first time it happened for me. Still also noticing the thermogenic effect as I constantly sweat from my abdominal and chest areas.
07-21-2011, 07:19 PM
07-21-2011, 07:29 PM
I'm noticing a tightening around the chest area, but nothing around the midsection. The thermo effect seems pretty strong though.
07-21-2011, 08:34 PM
Ive had a very slight effect in my pectoral area mainly in my lower pec, the thermo effect is nice at the gym but for everyday activities its almost bothersome
07-28-2011, 03:50 PM
Done Week 2 of the 2nd bottle, a little more than halfway done the bottle too, and one thing I have noticed over the last week is that Lipoburn had helped bring out definition around my serratus muscles and my obliques very nicely. I've been lifting more for strength over the last 2 weeks too, so I have not cut as much fat as before, but Lipoburn has helped keep the thermogenic action even at a less intense pace during my workouts
08-05-2011, 06:25 PM
Week 3 done in bottle 2: I have been using slightly less than 4 pumps and usually twice a day, but I see this product more as a workout aid or cardio aid, not a product I'd personally think of using 2x a day as is recommended. During workouts I notice a tightening of the skin and post workout, I usually look very dry. I did hurt my back a few weeks back so my abs routine has been more to build the core than power and heavy weight. I do notice that since I took the pictures from the first bottle I have made more progress.
08-13-2011, 08:43 PM
Noticed Some Pretty good results with tightening of the skin and reduction of fat in my lower abdomen. Did not notice much in my upper abdominal area however. In my pectoral area I have noticed an increased vascularity and tightening of the skin. In that area, I can see the pectoral insertion point much clearer. I have not noticed any water retention as some other users have. I would say my experience was good as a product for spot reduction and tightening of certain areas. My final weight was 190 lbs when my initial weight was 191 lbs, so not much loss, and my strength stayed the same. With a 3 pt caliper check, I lost 2.5% BF in 2 months, not necessarily from Lipoburn by itself. I would like to thank the guys from LG for hooking me up with this and helping me achieve my goals.
Note to all on this, my second month I added more cardio, but lengthened rest on most of my lifts and went lighter on abs because of my spinal condition.
08-13-2011, 08:57 PM
Sorry for only 1 angle and not the best pics, these are about 8 hours after a workout and after dinner, so not as dried out as usual.
