RS-Transaderm - Weight loss with lean muscle gain
First I'd like to thank RickRock for giving me this opportunity to log this product and allowing me time to finish up my other log.
This is going to be a killer ride guys!
Short supplement history~
I started with pre workouts and fat burners around 7 years ago. During this time you could still get ephedra from walmart lol. Unfortunately, I only took fat burners because well.... I was fat. 260+lbs fat. 46" Waist. My mile time was around 15 minutes. Anyway, started to go to the gym around this time and about 5 years ago started taking pre workouts. Tried um all .
Fast forward to 2009 and I moved to Japan for a teaching job and got introduced to the wonderful world of ProHormones. Sadly, the reason I didn't get to do much research was because of the ban stick the industry got hit with. A friend who is also from Hawaii like me and works up here introduced me to some PH's. Told me Hdrol was something amazing to run. And so around winter 2009 I started an Hdrol run. It was amazing. Unfortunately I probably lost most of my gains in PCT because... like a fool I decided to cut in PCT... being fat fobic sucks lol.
After that I tried the , and most recently ran and . While I said to myself that would be the last run of Orals I would ever take (my liver enzymes were elevated before due to an underlying gluten intolerance and systematic inflammation, plus I had vitiligo which is the same skin disease that Michael Jackson had, which has gone down since avoiding gluten/flour like it's poison.) Transaderm is NOT "oral" so I will give it a go. If my digestive issues ever go away I will hit the orals again... because I just love to run them... yes... i'm an addict. So with luck after coming off a short 4 week recomp on and (Mattrag is Dream'n LEAN with EndoSurge!! (BPS sponsored)) I will be able to continue my recomp.
Cliff Notes version: I was a fat 260lb High Schooler and now I'm a not so fat teacher. Started PH in 2009 with Hdrol, have a few mild cycles under my belt. Digestive/Gut issues have me staying away from Orals so Transaderm is a blessing.
87.4kgs (morning weight)
My workouts follow the 3.0 my diet is slightly modified. Static holds, EDT.
Also, I started up judo in July/August and will be continuing with that 2-3 times a week. Not too much, just practicing with my High School students. Though in January I plan on trying to rank up so it's kinda serious.
The calories are basically the same but the macro spread is different. For protein it's the same. My macro's fall into this spread usually 25/25/50 Carbs/protein/fat. My fat sources are primarily coconut milk, grass fed beef, coconut oil, / /Omega3 pills. I also eat NO WHOLE GRAINS. The only starches I eat are sweet potatoes. Trying to avoid rice like the plague because it can be gut irritating but I live in Japan.... Hell avoiding flour is almost impossible. Eating out is pretty much not happening... unless it's those hot pot places (BTW Having hot pot, called "Na-be", on friday, I may upload some pics. If only the Iphone app had pic uploading ability I'd be uploading more often .... as my PC is broken and all I have is my net book...).
On to the Goals. I want to recomp. I know it's VERY vague. But I use the scale about once a week, anymore than that and my mind goes insane. Right now I want performance so if I feel my performance is dropping due to lack of food I will increase calories a bit. The last stack has got me stronger, leaner, and boosted the mood up a big so I'm hoping running this product will keep me happy.
Concerns: I read that too much DHEA can cause a mix up of down stream hormones. As DHEA is parent hormone in the testosterone/estrogen cascade ingesting a hormone this high up can have negative effects on test/estro ratio. Causing a skew of estrogen dominating sides. While most of this research is based on orally ingested DHEA there is still some worry here. I will be monitoring for any estrogen sides and will take whatever measures to them to remain on cycle for the 4 weeks. Unfortunately, I do not have any access to blood work besides from the blood donating I do... In Japan I can't just do the $50 private lab test... If I go to the doc without a viable reason my insurance doesn't copay...
Alright guys lets get this train started!!!
Lets rub it in!
PS. I'll be taking body measurements tonight as I have found my bb.com tape measure thingy finally. haha!
