First & foremost, I'd like to thank the generous people over at Athletix Sports for this opportunity to run their products. While taking these pills, I will be pushing myself as hard and as often as possible and be as honest as possible, all as my way of saying thanks... During these tough economic times, these supplement companies are still willing to give out their products to let the results of us 'little people" speak for themselves..
I'm coming back to the gym this week after about a 2 week break. My first week off, I got a little sick. It went through the whole house, starting w/ the kids first, & I was the last to get it. Last week, we went to Orange Beach, AL for a much needed vacation, so I took that week off as well just to let my body rest/recover.
I started back into the gym yesterday, & can tell you it feels great to be back in the game.. Strength only dropped a tiny little bit, but my body got soft in those two weeks off!! That makes Enhanced an unhappy man... I have no idea what I'm tipping the scales at right now. When I get up tomorrow morning, I'll be sure & weigh myself before I eat or drink anything.
While on these pills, I don't plan on changing up my diet a whole lot. I try to eat clean every day. I do, however, from time to time, lose the discipline at the table, so I'll push myself that much harder in the gym. Most of my carbs are complex, except for postworkout. I'm a sucker for chocolate milk, so that's usually my go-to after a hard session in the gym.
I'm going to use my diet, my workouts, and these pills and work on a recomp. If I gain a little, it's cool. Just as long as it's not around the waist.
I'll report each day, (or each time I post here) what I'm feeling on the following:
In my logs, I don't normally list my entire workout as far as exercise, sets/reps. Instead, it's more of a narrative as to what I'm doing in the gym & how it's all working out for me. The same goes w/ my diet. I'll let you know if I ate junk all day, but if it's good, clean eating, it probably won't be mentioned. Which reminds me - I like beer.. But, the more I make it to the gym, the less I drink. I bought my first 6 pack of Sam Adams on Monday in probably 2 months!! I sweat my a$$ off at work & needed an ice cold good quality brewski. Don't worry, I drink about 2 gallons of water every day.
Also, if some of you have followed my logs, you know I like to post pics. Nothing speaks results better than pictures. I could tell you my bench went up 60lbs in a month, but for me, it's all about what I see in the mirror. So, what I see, you too will see..
This was a few hours ago... As you can see, I've gotten very soft around the gut.. Crap pisses me off. Time to get back to work in the gym & clean up the diet a little..
OK, time to hit the sack. I'll be getting up tomorrow (day off) and hitting the gym 1st thing in the morning for leg day..
