Gonzo is COMBUSTING (sponsored)
First I'd like to thank BPS for the chance to log their combustion fat burner supplement. I have not used any of BPS's supplements before so I'm very excited to give them a try. I have extensive use of fat burners under my belt including Vapor XT, Redline, homemade ECA, Recreate and more.
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: ~200(will get an exact number day 1)
Weight Lifting Experience: about 4 years
My goals right now is to lean up. I need to get faster/quicker in the next few months. Dropping some extra dead weight will help me accomplish my goals. I will have a mile time, and a 60 yard dash time that I will take at the start, and will keep testing my numbers to see progress.
I will incorporate distance running, sprints, agility drills, cycling, and possible swimming as means of cardio and conditioning. Weight training will be kept the same, concentrating on Max effort on compound lifts, and high volume during isolation moves. I try to separate my cardio from my weight training.
I will be shooting for 2300 to 2500 cals per day, with majority being from lean meats. Carbs will be loaded early during breakfast, so I can have ample energy, but I'll try to stay in the 100g range, with carbs also being consumed post workout.
I will be using protein post work out, multi, fish oils, and vit C, along with Combustion.
I will be posting before and after pics, as soon as I find my camara. lol
I think I covered all my bases, so lets get this show on the road!

Day 1 6.28.11
8 mile bike ride at 13-16mph to the gym as warm up
pushup/pullup super set to warm up
Incline Bench [185x5] [205x4]x2
Incline DB flys [45x10]x3
cable cross [30x12]x3
*EZ bar curls [35x10]x3
*EZ bar reverse grip curls [30x10]x3
DB curls [20x8]x3
* denotes supersets
8 miles bike ride at 13-16mph as cool down
1/4 mile warm up jog
7- 30m sprints
Curcuit training (a-d completed 4 times)
a. 25 pushups
b. 25 body weight squats
c. 25 crunches
d. 1/4 miles run
NOTES: ok, so my pressing strength is slow to come back to me for some reason. After a few weeks off earlier in the year due to being deep in season. Intensity was a lot better today, and I will contribute that to the higher energy levels I experienced all day for the most part. I dont usually go crazy doing Biceps, I'm not much for them but I did get a good pump today. Good cardio session, forgot my stop watch so i could take times of anything.
NOTES: well, I didn't eat much of anything today, wasn't feeling hungry, which is a little weird cause i'm usualy looking around for snacks between meals. With supps that cut down hunger I usually do this, forget to eat, I guess its not a bad thing sometimes
Overall a day day 1. I definetly can feel the stim, as I thought I had above average energy levels through out the day. I'm not sure if it was just muggy out, or hot but I did feel like I was sweating a good amount, did consume my entire gallon of water which is usually a struggle for me sometimes. Good workout, good cardio, over all a good day, but thats not good enough for me, need to pick up intensity tomorrow!
If that doesn't get you going, you're PCT didn't work. lol

lol my pct worked i guess

Day 2 6.29.11
DB lunges [50s x 10]x3
leg press [250x20] [300x30]x2
leg curls [50x15] [70x15]x2
leg ext [90x15]x3
standing calf [150x20]x3
22 mile bike ride at a average speed of 14.3mph
Throw/BP for about 45 mins total
NOTES: Ok, so my knees were pretty sore today, thats why I cut out squats from my leg work out and went higher reps. the 22 mile ride was good cardio in the morning, pretty darn hilly.
NOTES: Most of the carbs came with the bagel on the go in the morning and an energy bar i had mid ride. After that, other carbs came from the whole wheat tortilla wraps I used to make chicken wraps.
Day 2 down, and started to get warmed up. BTW i've been dosing 1 cap in the am, 2 caps in the PM, I might experiment with 2/2 tomorrow. Tomorrow is actually a day off from the gym, but tonights game time so that'll make up for my lack of gym time.
06-30-2011, 12:18 PM
Go with 2/2 if you can handle it, btw libido is great.

Cycling is one of those treasures we lose with age. I picked up a cheap trek road bike and started riding and I can't get enough, to see things around you're area you've never noticed before. Also its a great means of local transportation, save gas, great workout. Plus its easy on my old man knees

Combustion has nice fat burning profile no doubt, the only thing I recommend is that you get yourself some Sensoril and Erase to get those thyroids into full throttle. Other than enjoy your ride with it, the profile looks mean and I have talked to one of the reps for this company, and they have a nice of line of supps for the future. I am picky on what I buy and I can tell you that they will be making money off of me LMAO

Day 3 6.30.11
45mins of BP
NOTES: Today I took off from the gym because of a 6pm game. Took 45mins of batting practice which was a workout in itself. We took home a W with a 9-3 win, 1 for 3(single, sac fly, K)
NOTES: another low carb day mainly cause of long work shirt in the morning, then right to BP, then right to game, got back around 9pm and didnt want to eat anything that close to bed
Day 3 down, no gym time, but got a good sweat. BP was a good workout, and the game was also. With the lack of cal intake, it worked out for no gym training.
07-02-2011, 12:19 AM
Day 4 7.1.11
Pullups [BW x 8]x3
Chinups [BW x 6]x3
Barbell Bent over row [185x8]x3
Wide grip low cable rows [100x10]x3
lat pull down [100x12]x3
Throw for 30mins
NOTES: Pretty good workout today, fast paced, good pump, good focus in the gym. I'm overall content with the workout. I want to take a more of an "attack" attitude in the gym, really pushing myself. Its a little hard to self motivate alone in a non-intense gym setting.
NOTES: On the go, hard to eat much. Next weeks goals will cover getting a better eating schedule.
Day four down, and starting to really feel the full effects of Combustion. I'm now dosing at 4 caps a day and I love it. Good energy, feeling a thermo effect, sweating a little bit more than normal, decrease in hunger. Not really craving sweets. Hydration is good, now just need to get my eating schedule down. Also i've been slacking in the cardio department, another goal for next week. Next week def plan on bumping it up a notch, started at 200ibs, today weighed in 198.2, and that got me going, want to really work to drop some weight.

Looks like you've got a solid workout plan down! I like your routine. You definitely need to get your eating habits down. Even though you are trying "lean out" and drop weight, such a low protein/calorie diet for a guy your size will more than likely just shrivel up what muscle you do have. Just my word of advice.
I'm logging Combustion as well, I'm enjoying it immensely!
07-05-2011, 11:32 PM
I know I completely agree, i'm getting better setting alarms to tell me to eat, when things get busy and stressful, I miss meals unlike some people that over indulge!

Gym was closed all weekend which was a major bummer.
Dont recall excatly what I ate, but it was a lot of steak, some burgers(no buns) some corn on the cob, lots of BBQ chicken breast. Good stuff. Not too crazy, but I ate good. My workouts just consisted of 2 mile runs each day, around both in 14:30 about.
Squat: 135x5 185x5 225x3 275x3 [315x1] x3
Leg press: [540x12] x 3
Leg curls: [80x10]x3
Leg ext: [130x12] x3
Notes: short sweet, and to the point. Doesnt seem like much, but its been a while since i trained heavy, and my legs were done. Lots of intensity, flew around the gym, got out the built of stress from the weekend. Overall good workout.
GENERAL NOTES: Good day. Diet was sound, training was hard. Lots of energy, can't complain.
NOTES ON COMBUSTION: So far, I've noticed increase energy throughout the day. I sweat more than usual during workouts, and when resting. No jittery energy, no crash symptoms. Its hard to tell if its stress or combustion thats killing my appetite, but I do feel like some of it is due to Combustion, I haven't had this much of a hard time this far into a few supp to really remember eating, also not craving sweet carb filled foods either. I started off at 200 even and now i'm sitting at 196.2 which is good progress in a week. I'm very pleased so far.
07-06-2011, 03:37 PM
I get the appetite suppression big time right now on combustion. Libido still going strong lol.

Pullups [BW x 10] x3
Chinups [BW x8 x6 x6]
DB Rows [70x10]x3
close grip low cable rows [145x10]x3
lat pull downs [130x10]x3
NOTES: Decent work out, pressed for time a little bit, had to fly around.
NOTES: Better eating, lots of protein, been adding some extra shakes in between meals to get cals in when I can't eat
CURRENT WEIGHT: 193.7
Probably a little dehydrated when I weighed in but thats a 6.3 ib drop in 10 days, not bad
07-07-2011, 10:42 PM
Today was brutal. Worked a 12 hour side job in the construction field. It was a hot one, going all day in the sun. I had a few eggs before I left, a bagel, ton was water and gatorade, came on, had some pork roast, and mashed potatos, a slice of few day old pizza, then passed out for a few hours. No gym are cardio, but work today was a all day gym session in it self. I have to hand it to guys that work everyday jobs in manual construction. Its not easy stuff. Tomorrow I have to work the same deal again, hopefully a shorter day, get some gym time in.
07-08-2011, 12:29 AM
Stay hydrated out in the heat.
07-13-2011, 10:51 AM
Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been crazy busy. Finally finished the land clearing gig, so I can get back to training and updating normally. how ever I am down to 191 as of this morning, a 9ib drop in about 2 weeks. Very happy about that! Ill get a workout in today, and update later.
