  1. Bruno's Burnin With Needtobuildmuscle N2BURN!


    I hope you're all ready to get singed because I just got my bottle of NeedToBuildMuscle's N2-Burn! Follow along as I shed off some fat and get a nice toasty winter burn :P

    Goal: Maintain weight within 5lbs of starting weight while losing 2-4% bodyfat.

    Dosage: I will be dosing at 2 caps on waking and then 1-2 caps 6-8 hours later. This will last between 3-4 weeks.

    Other Supplements:
    Combat Powder
    Assault
    Recon
    BulletProof
    Armor-V

    Beginning Stats:
    Height: 6' 4"
    Fasted Morning Weight: 196
    Mid-Day Weight: 200
    BF%: (Will update in morning at gym)

    Measurements:

    Chest: 39.5"
    Waist: 36 1/2"
    Hips: 39"
    Thighs: 24"
    Calfs: 15"

    Nutritional Summary:
    I cycle my calories and macro nutrients on a daily basis. Protein and fat intake remain pretty constant at 1g/lb of body weight for protein per day and between 90-120g of healthy fats per day.

  5. Subd in for the ride bro. Losing 2-4% is a big goal while trying to stay within 5 lbs of starting weight in a limited time, but it can be done! Good luck brother and cant wait to see how N2Burn treats you! How do you have your diet and training lined up?

  9. Subbed bro and I look forward to your results, That is what I would like for me when I use N2Burn next month. I dont want to lose much weight, however, like you, I want to lose more bodyfat. staying within 5 pounds would be very reasonable and I wish you luck with that. I see Rick already asked it, but I will to, how are you running your diet, caleries, meals, etc..Have a good day and thank you for giving this a run..SJ

  10. I have the detailed layout on my iPad but to summarize it I cycle my calories and macro nutrients on a daily basis. Protein and fat intake remain pretty constant at 1g/lb of body weight for protein per day and between 90-120g of healthy fats per day.

    For instance:
    Day 1 (Heavy Workout Chest/Back): 3000-3200 cals
    Day 2 (Rest Day/Light Cardio): 2200-2300 cals
    Day 3 (Heavy Workout Legs/Abs): 3000-3200 cals
    Day 4 (Rest Day): 2000-2200 cals
    Day 5 (Moderate Workout Arms/Shoulders): 2500-2800 cals
    Day 6 (Rest Day /Light Cardio): 2000-2200 cals
    Etc...

    I just weighed in at 196 on an empty stomach at doctors office this morming. I will update 1st post and bodyfat % soon. I've already taken before pics and think I may post them at end in comparison shots.

    I'll also post detailed workout routine in a hour or so when I get to my next clients house.

    Thank you for following along and giving support everyone!!!

  11. This a lean gains protocol cuz you numbers look like it is...
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  12. Haha is it? Maybe I will look into it I have honestly been following what my body tells me and what makes me feel good lol. Its all pretty healthy with an occasional 'bad' meal. I was under the impression for some reason that lean gains was a more extreme CKD diet but I haven't read up on it yet.

    Well the cals look like it the macros are pretty much individual... the rest is just timing...
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  14. Timing? Interesting... I've been getting closer and closer to finding what works best for me but it's so hard to hit the nail on the head when it comes to nutrient timing. I've felt a lot healthier and energetic by eating smaller portioned meals more often versus the typical 3 big meals a day. Is the lean gains diet substantiated by some decent research behind it? I don't like hopping on something just because it's popular at the time. When I get time today or tonight I'll look in depth into it and see if it sounds like something that would work for me.

  15. Also, just to give an update I took my 1st dose of 2 pills this morning on waking. Took about 1 hour for me to feel noticeable effects which was perfect for my wake up routine of showering/shaving/preparing my work.

    I have felt slightly warm all over especially in the upper chest/shoulders and head area. I haven't worked up to much of a sweat which is nice because I don't like the gross feeling. I have to note that the most noticeable effect so far has been a constant stream of energy and more importantly I have felt extremely focused. I'd have to describe it as if drinking a cup of coffee without the uncomfortable tweaker jitters :P


    ALSO FIRST POST HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH DIET OUTLINE AND WORKOUT ROUTINE!!!!

  16. I'm in. Good Luck.
    Mike,

  17. Day 1

    Timing:
    2 pills @ 8:15am
    2 pills @ 3:00pm

    Summary:

    First Dose:
    Took first dose after waking and noticeable effects kicked in after 1 hour. Increased body temp especially in upper torso area and head. Constant stream of energy without any major fluctuations or jitters. Best effect of all was increased focus and mental agility. Most surprising of all was that energy and mental focus only slightly subsided by the time of second dose. No downsides noticed.

    Second Dose:
    Second dose taken in afternoon after small snack (300cals). Heat effect was minimal, however once again energy and mental focus were substantially increased. Had planned to use a full scoop of Pre-WO mix, but my body felt wired and ready to go for the workout so I only took a half scoop. Workout ended up being surprisingly good even with my light amount of calories previously ingested. One side effect noticed 2 hours after second dose. Several strong liquidy bowel movements (as gross as it is to mention ) To put it lightly, if someone had chosen to flush Mr.Goldfish down the toilet, said goldfish would be in hell.

    Workout:

    DB Shoulder Press - 25x10, 30x8, 40x6, 45x4
    DB Lateral Raise - 10x10, 10x10, 15x8
    DB Rear Delt Row - 50x8, 55x6, 60x6
    Barbell Curl - 40x10, 50x8, 60x8
    DB Alternating Bicep Curl - 20x8, 25x6, 30x6
    Cable Triceps Pushdown - 70x10, 90x8, 120x6
    Seated Deltoid Flys (Threw these in for fun) - 90x10, 120x8, 150x6

    Nutrition:
    Unfortunately I had several unexpected clients I had to visit today so my diet wasn't really anywhere I would've liked it to be or anything like what you'll typically see throughout the log.

    Also, here's a schoolbus after the driver took some N2-Burn...

  25. Haha for sure...I'm considering Lean Gains considering my diet is currently only a step away from it as it is. All I would realistically need to adjust is my timing. I'm still not 100% on lean gains though and how it works. Does anyone have any knowledge/input on it? My body already naturally works better off of eating in the afternoon, however I'm just confused on the overall philosophy and intricacies of it. I need some time to sit on it and consider if it would work for me but it just seems confusing to me haha.

    In the meantime check out this delicious ass omelette I made this afternoon :P I don't mean to pat myself on the back but DAMN I'm getting good at cooking.

    Mmmmm mmmmmm haha. **** me I spend so much time at home, I need something to do.

  26. Day 2

    Timing:
    2 pills @ 10:15am
    2 pills @ 3:00pm

    Summary:

    First Dose:
    I took my 1st dose today at 10:15 after waking. I ingested 2 liters of water this morning after the dose, was very thirsty for some reason. I felt the same slightly increased body temperature although today it was very light. I have to say that where N2 Burn really shines for me is in the energy/focus deprtment. I haven't felt this much cognitive focus in quite a long time. I also didn't get the slightest bit of hunger pains until 1:30pm so I cooked up a nice big delicious omelette haha. I have to mention that if someone had watched me in that kitchen I would've looked like I was on speed. I was talking to myself and flying from one place to the other, SO MUCH ENERGY!!!!!!

    Second Dose:
    Took second dose of 2 pills at 3pm, exactly one hour after my 1200cal meal. Absolutely no noticeable thermogenic effects this time however my energy continued on. I am starting to notice the appetite suppression on this as it was tough to eat my 2nd meal of the day at 545. I was not even remotely hungry, I just ate because I knew I should.

    Workout:
    Rest day )

    Nutrition:
    I'm going to start posting pics of some of the meals I make just to prove that you can eat the crazy good **** I do and still lose fat on this haha. I already posted my omelette earlier
