  1. Oh! and I'm not saying I'm trying just because Rosie did, I'd decided beforehand & then found this thread.

    Rosie tried it, if it's OTC I'm thinking... Well hoping, one round won't hurt
    It mentions it for both Erase and Erase Pro, since both contain the same active.

    Yes, I tried it, but like I said earlier, I do a lot of things I would not recommend to others (males or female) because I do what works for my body.

    That said, if you want to try it no one is stopping you - they are just making recommendations. Make sure you're well versed in what the product is and does before you use it, and ensure that it has a PURPOSE in your supplementation regime.

    Harder because you could be losing water and therefore look and/or feel drier.

    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "♥ It is not by chance that those who “PROVIDE” the most to others “COINCIDE” with the most “GRATIFIED” people on the planet ♥ There is a direct “parallel” between the BLESSINGS that you GIVE and the “BLISSFULNESS” that you LIVE. By always "OPENING DOORS" for others to live the BEST lives that they CAN, your “THRESHOLD” for THRILL increases again and again! ♥ Simply, the more that you DO to bring another “GLEE”, the HAPPIER it is that YOU will be! You will never “HOLD BACK” your own “EXUBERANCE” when you manage to “UNLEASH” another's JUBILANCE! ♥ Adding “PEP” to another's “step” will “ELEVATE” you to "WALK ON AIR"…In causing another to feel #1, Y-O-U will float "ON CLOUD #9"! ♥" - Lauren Christine Frahn


    TRAINING

    Sunday

    Day OFF

    So, adapted my training this week based on how my body was feeling and what was going on - not doing the post-weights cardio of 20 minutes on Wednesday or Friday, and making today a day off (since I haven't had one this week) - which turned out ok, and probably helped me get my body composition down by giving my body more recovery time (since I DID push it pretty hard this week, Monday through Wednesday especially).


    OTHER NOTES

    Body Composition

    7.8% bodyfat - a loss of 0.7% bodyfat over 10 days (although really -0.5% bodyfat in 8 days, because I was 8% bodyfat Thursday and Friday). I hit my goal body composition for this week (so the three days re Monday to Wednesday of "helter-skelter of hellacious training...an entire week's worth of training crammed into THREE days, with those days also using EXTREME dieting" - with a "cheat" meal after shooting with Walt on Thursday night - certainly worked)! Also 2.6 pounds HEAVIER than I was last time I was this body composition (November/December 2011), so I definitely have more lean mass, muscle in my delts and arms, and a little more in my lower body (GRRRR to that). My girths are now back to being SYMMETRICAL re both arms and legs, so that is another pleasing factor. Now I just have to MAINTAIN this body composition and get even leanER - it will be slow from here on out no doubt, but I am determined to progress and not step backwards (although fluctuating between this, lower, and 8% bodyfat will be ok), improving from here on out in EVERY way!!!

    Florida & Photoshoots & Fun

    After all the upsets of the week prior, and my life being turned upside down multiple times in the several months before that, this last week went rather well. BETTER than well - it didn't happen for Thursday (8% bodyfat was close enough though), but by Saturday I was the body composition I wanted (and looked the best I ever have re leanness, definition and vascularity), my body in a condition I was "happy" with (but want to and will improve on); and all my photoshoots went great, with the best shots ever being taken at the end of each one (some real stunning ones - among the top shots I have ever taken); and having the week I have needed for so long away from everything to clear my head and get some new perspective and focus. It was a truly awesome week, spent with some amazing and inspiring people, and I have come away from it with fresh determination, ready to give everything I have to making my dreams REALITY!

    For the Month of May

    I have the honour of shooting with Tony Mitchell again AND Jerry Beck for Iron Asylum at the end of May - coinciding with my birthday, which shall mean another few days of fun-filled work, smiles and laughter, relaxing and enjoying the company of more amazing and inspiring people! Today is a last chance to chill out and relax before starting back into heavy training tomorrow in preparation for this shoot - I plan on and WILL be the leanest I have EVER been for it, in the BEST shape of my life to date! Very excited...And because he is also awesome, I have the privilege of being the first to use Matt Pearson's latest version of Abliderate Advanced - something he kindly "created" for me based on my needs (THANK YOU, MATT!) so I'll be able to see how that goes...

    It was, Chris - I am truly grateful for the amazing people in my life that give me the opportunity and to whom I can give the opportunity to do such things

    Re Abliderate Advanced, Matt made this up specially for me, but if all goes well, it may be released as a new SKU.

    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    "It's not about how much you can get out of life, but about how much you can GIVE TO it!" - Rosie Chee

    For the complete Motivational, review What You GIVE TO Life | Rosie's MuscleRevolution.


    TRAINING

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 28 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 2 x 50 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    d. 4 min jogging

    Shoulders/Hamstrings (1 min recovery between sets):
    1. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press 6 x 15, 12, 10, 8, 8, 8
    2. BB Military Press 6 x 8
    3. Single-Arm Plate Lateral Raises 6 x 12, 12, 12, 10, 10, 8 per arm
    4. Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts (BB to touch ground) 6 x 10

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Rollers 20 min in 39x18 @ 118-120 rpm

    Stretch 20 min

    Yesterday was BAD: Day OFF training, only just over half a galleon of water drunk, and close to 1,000 grams of carbohydrates consumed (yes, I completely let go yesterday - although half of that was from clean sources)! No wonder I woke feeling like crap today, my face looking like a puffer fish, highly uncomfortable with the additional 10-pound weight gain (although, yes, I know, food and water weight - doesn't make me feel any different though). Anyways...Took me a little bit to get myself together for training. Headed out for my run, surprised that my knees weren't hurting from all the extra weight, but not surprised that I felt more energetic than I did last week. Did more sprints than usual, with two longer ones at the end...Took my Assault on returning, getting myself ready for the weights. Downstairs to the basement. It was a sudden decision to make this week a "deload" week after I had finished my first set of Behind-the-neck BB Military Presses, but I made it - given that it's been ~3 weeks since my last deload, and I have four weeks until my next photoshoot/s, it's the perfect time to have one this week. No skipping after shoulders' exercises today, single sets only. Slight twinges in right delt from the second set of Behind-the-neck BB Military Presses. Left wrist aching a little during BB Military Presses, but nothing unmanageable. Left delt/bi tendon in agony from the third set of Single-Arm Plate Lateral Raises - hence the lower reps from that set on. Huge pump in delts and arms though. Fine during Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts...Enjoyed being able to sit on my rollers, even though legs felt heavy and thick (not just feeling either - look it too - from all the water retention after yesterday). Spinning and the hurt in my quads did not start until almost a third of the way in, but pushing through it...Glad to be able to stretch...I was SO thirsty this morning that I guzzled almost a galleon of water during resistance training and post-weights cardio alone...


    OTHER NOTES

    Supplements

    Started using Erase Pro again today (didn't use it last week). Started back on Assault again as well (none used last week). First official day of Abliderate Advanced too.

  11. Rosie Chee Fitness Newsletter :: May 2012


    THE LIFESTYLE EDITION

    Fitness should not be a "quick fix" or temporary "solution" in your life, but a LIFESTYLE. YOUR lifestyle. Something that you live and breathe and simply DO EVERY day. Fitness is NOT about looking good. It is about HEALTH and making your body the BEST it can be. It is about creating the optimal environment for your soul to live in, aiding in the prolonging of your life.

    This month in the 'Training' section, I have explained how to go about making fitness a part of your daily routine, and no, it does NOT have to be hours of exercise every day.

    In this month's 'Nutrition' section, I have outlined what "lifestyle nutrition" is and should be, and how you can CHANGE your diet up at any time to achieve a specific goal for that phase or period of your life.

  12. Yeah those carb madness days are good for the soul sometimes but just like you I hold a ton of water and my face swells up. I feel rough the following day too. It is just one of those things but also the reason I won't do the UD2 diet again. The weekend carb ups became too much for me.

    Yeah - after dropping water all last week though, it had an even more pronounced effect than usual. Not enjoying the feeling, and yet yesterday I was still craving (and ate - albeit nowhere near as much) them! Truly feeling crappy today - wisdom teeth also coming up, which is never fun either. Going to let myself have a day to recover and my body to settle down methinks and hit it extra hard tomorrow...

    I'm hoping so - it's been three days now of being 11 pounds more than usual and my body is hating me for it. My head feels like it's about to explode, my ears are blocked, my mouth hurts when I eat, my limbs feel heavy, and training is the last thing I feel like doing. Good thing I decided to make it a "deload" week. I can't afford to get sick - seems like I always do when I have an "easy" week - or have this last for long - I know my body will feel better when I start hammering it again in the gym and eating re Lean Gains 16-hour fast/8-hour feeding window (been doing 12-hour fast/12-hour feeding window last four days) with food that AGREES with my body (too many of the wrong carbohydrates the last couple of days and not enough protein) and need to do it ALL the time! For HEALTH reasons, I can't even do this "temporarily" any more - it takes too much toll on my body. Anyways, hope the rest of your day goes well, David

    TRAINING

    Tuesday

    Day OFF

    Wednesday

    HIIT Run:
    a. 4 min jogging
    b. 12 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
    c. 12 min jogging

    Stretch 12 min

    Arms/Abs (1 min recovery between supersets):
    SuperSet A -
    1. Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls 4 x 12, 10, 8, 8
    2. Incline Dips 4 x 8
    SuperSet B -
    3. Incline Bicep Curls 4 x 12, 10, 10, 10
    4. DB French Press 4 x 8
    SuperSet C -
    5. Alternate Hammer Bicep Curls 4 x 15 per side
    6. Hammer Curls 4 x 8
    SuperSet D -
    7. Crunches (on floor, hips at 90 degree angle, legs straight, to touch toes) 4 x 25
    8. Plank 4 x 1 min

    Post-Weights Cardio:
    Rollers 20 min in 39x18 @ 110-120 rpm

    Stretch 12 min

    Slept a little longer than usual - allowing myself to, waking and going back to bed, since it IS a "deload" week (and also not had a week "off" in a long time, and my "easy"/"deload" weeks ARE my weeks "off"). Not feeling the best, still holding an extra 11 pounds than usual, which makes a HUGE difference in how I look AND feel...HIIT Run felt slow, but surprisingly knees were ok until towards the end, where right one started getting tight. Left rear delt had an ache/pull in it during the entire run...Resistance training I wasn't looking forward to, which doesn't happen very often to me. Started out and was surprised that I was able to go as high with reps on my first set of Close-Grip BB Bicep Curls. Since I have no Dips' bars in the basement, I did Incline Dips instead, going low, feeling every one. It's been a LONG time since I had a minute's recovery [on any session other than Shoulders/Hamstrings], but I did today, no matter how weird it felt - my body REALLY needs the SHORTER recovery periods for best function, but given the way I was feeling, it was ok. Left wrist started aching badly during Incline Bicep Curls, and pump in arms was MASSIVE by the time I was done with my first set of the DB French Press. Left wrist continued to ache and pump continued to get "more", becoming very painful, but SuperSet C was managed, recovery a relief. Finished off the session with a different kind of crunch, feeling the stretch in my hamstrings during it, my core feeling highly UNcomfortable...Even though I didn't feel like it, I did 20 minutes on my rollers, cadence rather varied at times. I got off my bike with legs that felt so heavy - I definitely HATE this feeling, and the sooner I can rid my body of all this excess water weight (especially since it has bloated me from my waist to knees, causing even SITTING to be uncomfortable) the better...NOT very happy with myself right now...

    The leaner you get and "go bad", the more "rebound" you have back. I know it's just food and water weight, no matter what it feels like, and it's worse because all last week I CUT water and limited carbohydrates (when I don't usually do the latter), and the last few days have been back eating as "normal" for me, but with only half the amount of my usual consumption of water. Doesn't make it any less uncomfortable though, and I accept full responsibility for it...Bloating can be caused by many things, Tommy, including but not limited to type of food eaten (i.e. gaseous food or food you have sensitivities to, etc.), not drinking enough, too much sodium, training, etc.

    Thanks, Chris. Eh, it'll be ok once I am back training as intensely as I should be and following the nutritional protocol that best agrees with my body.

    Next time, consider NOT cutting and just leaning out slowly over time. Seriously, I don't "bulk" and "cut" - even doing what I do re training and eating, my body loves to recomp, and I just stay relatively lean all the time, which makes it easier to lean down fast if you have to for anything specific. But, each to their own, so just do what is best for you...But yes, you will have those days if you are doing the typical competitor competition preparation. You just have to remind yourself what you're doing this for and use that as "motivation"...

    Yah I try to stay away from extremes but my body wants to be fat, so it's always a struggle. Unless I am on top of my diet year round I am screwed. So what I did this year is struggled and maintained 205 then I id one 8 week bulk to 220. This puts me well within range of being cut which for me is around 200..I try to do this slowly cuz I figure if I am not progressing I am probably regressing....I will get cut before summer and recomp all summer. That way I can spend the summer looking good and gettting better as the summer turns to fall.

    I am always at an extreme, Doug. If it's nothing, it's all, and "extreme" occurs in EVERY area of my life - a bad habit, I know, but sometimes habits can be so very hard to break, especially when they have had a lifetime of conditioning...It USED to be as long as I maintained my training intensity and volume that I was ok, no matter what my nutrition was like. However, my body has changed a lot in the last year, even moreso after my latest set of injuries and that no longer seems to be the case any more, my nutrition playing almost just as important a role as my training in my conditioning now, so I am working on making it better, having been FORCED to for my health - funny how I almost always have to be FORCED by my body to do something to truly "listen" to it. I know what scale weight and body composition my body does NOT feel comfortable and I am less functional over, so I have to stay UNDER those limits, and just work on bettering myself where I must there - not that I mind, since I'm not really looking for any more muscle mass, and want to stay leaner, training for me now, as I told an elderly gentleman who asked me a couple of months ago, simply to stay alive and functional...

  25. I used to be the exact same way regarding extremes. After my first shoulder surgery was when my body "MADE" me change as you mention. I try not to do anything now that actually hurts while I am doing it. Not like the muscle burns or normal muscle pain, but if a tendon or joint does I tend to back off now. Sometimes still not quickly enough but definitely a lot more in tune with any possible injury coming on and making adjustments to try to limit the issue before it is a major problem.

    Yes, I am learning to "back off" when I know that continuing on will be detrimental, simply because I CANNOT afford to have ANY time off training, especially with the way my body is now. Sometimes I almost feel like I am "making excuses" when I go a little easier, but at the same time I am being cautious. Like this week - having it as a "deload" week, even though my head is screaming "NOOOOO!!!" because every time I have one I go slightly "backwards" and have to work my ass off to get back to where I was, but also knowing that my body needs to have SOME easier weeks, especially if I don't plan on having a complete week off all training for as long as my body will stand for it! It's listening to my body and beginning to respect it, accepting that I cannot treat it like a machine all the time.

    Mind, body and spirit all need recreation.
    All my life I've never stopped to worry 'bout a thing,
    Open up and shout it out, an' never try to sing,
    Wondering if I've done it wrong,
    Will this depression last for long, wont you tell me,
    Where have all the good times gone.

    You're the one that talked into using progressive training rather than fighting the wieght all the time. I have always been extreme by default but I am mellowing Necessity is a big part of it, but it just starts to make more sense as well.. Most days are still pretty intense, it's all about attitude really. Work within myself that's what really changed. Making a plan and sticking to it.

  29. @Rosie, I have definitely noticed you have been more sensitive to your body the last 6 months. It is a good thing and it does feel like you are cheating yourself at first.

    AMEN, sometimes I still get a little to buck for my own good even without attempting too. It is really hard for me when I change my reps schemes not to over do it at first. I have a decent amount of strength and can handle some decent weight for higher reps now that I increased my work capacity. So rep ranges that used to not be an issue can be at times just because the weight is high even in the 12-15 rep range.

    Yes, they do, and I am slowly learning that, and have taken the time out this year to give myself that break. I think my mind and spirit need a slightly longer one, and I can accept that, slowing down instead of going a million miles an hour with everything, giving myself room to breathe instead of constantly being on the go and not giving myself a chance to calm down or relax.

    Attitude can make all the difference for sure, Doug. I am finding myself more "adaptable" when it comes to training and routines of late, especially since the last few months almost NOTHING has been consistent, constantly being interrupted or my life thrown upside down without even a moment's notice. I guess that's the measure of seeing how well we can survive - being able to change with change, and I am learning that, even though I like and prefer structure and routine, I CAN live without it and STILL do what I must.

    All those injuries at the end of last year was a true wake-up call when it comes to my body and how I treat it, Chris. And now everything with the way my body deals re nutrition changing as well the last few months, I HAVE to be if I want to continue making progress and becoming the best ME that I can be. It's not just in all that though, but, like I mentioned to David, I have to give my mind and soul some rest as well, and after the events of the last few months...Sometimes I feel like I have gone through a "mid-life crisis", but I have come out of it stronger, and although every day it seems right now is a battle, I am getting stronger, to where I must and have to be, in EVERY way possible. I am definitely more focused and clearer on what I want and what I have to do to get there, holding onto hopes that I would never before have let myself have, more aware than ever of how short life really is, and that at any moment it can all be snatched away, so I had better do all I can as much as I can whenever I can, and never stop hoping for the dreams I want to come true, working on getting closer to them every day. I have grown so much the last few months that sometimes I don't even recognize who I am. Strange how it takes something so drastic to make it happen for some of us, and sometimes takes more than ONE drastic event to really hit the message home, to make us "slow down", when we already thought we had...
