    Getting Shredded with PES and Muscle Pharm (not sponsored)


    Hey y'all on the 19th I'll be starting a 12 week cut to get ready for my Hawaii trip June 15th, and will be running 2bottles of original Erase, 2 bottles of AT2, and Two bottles of Shred Matrix.

    Weeks 1-4 - Shred Matrix
    Weeks 5-8 - Erase AT2
    Weeks 9-12- Erase AT2 Shred Matrix

    Other staples
    Orange triad multi
    Protein factory Bio fresh isolate and Aussie Casein (will start these after I finish my ON 100% Whey supply.
    Fish oil 4-6 caps
    D3
    Assault on lifting days
    Creapure to supplement my creatine on days I don't take assault.
    Probiotic

    First off i know a few of you all on here and am so impressed with all The knowledge. Im 30, 5' 11 and currently 179-180 lbs. I just went through a major transformation for me anyway that started back in june-july 2011 and ended jan 1st. I will post some pics up below so u can get an idea of what ive been through and where ill be starting for this log. I've never done a log on here so hang in there I will do my best. It will be a weekly log with my work schedule and a wife and three year old son I'll shoot for as many updates as possible but at least I'll do a weekly update. I've never use any PES product besides Anabeta, I've used and enjoyed Shred Matrix b4 which is why I'm throwing it in here.

    I am putting this up a couple weeks early to gather some advice suggestions etc b4 I start.

    My schedule is hectic, I am a local truck driver do all my meals except breakfast come out of huge cooler. I am very dedicated to getting meals in as I have reheated my chicken on the defroster of my work truck when I couldn't stop somewhere. My diet will probably be carb cycling (5 low days with 2 higher days. I've been fooling around IF/lean gains for the past few weeks and am loving the fast but it seems my stomach cannot handle the higher food intake in shorter time frame, so I am going back to what I know works. I will incorporate a cheat meal or afternoon of whatever I want on a low day depending on progress.

    Training-
    I usually get to the gym between 4-430 am
    Split will go something along these lines

    Mon- legs
    Tuesday-shoulders/calves HIIT cardio after
    Weds- low intensity cardio
    Thursday- back/traps
    Friday-chest/calves/cardio
    Saturday- arms/cardio
    Sunday - off or cardio
    I will adjust cardio along the way, my lifts are 1-2 compound lifts plus a couple secondary lifts. Sets vary from 3-5, reps in the 8-12 range.

    I am taking the next week or so to eat how I want to get it out of my system then it's game time!!

    Let me say thanks to Natty for the PES shirt!! It'd be nice to get a MusclePharm shirt as well. Hint hint lol

    Subd.

    Regarding the if/lg... Your stomach WILL ge used to the higher food intake.. You have to push. You might feel uncomfortably full for a while but you'll vet used to it and actually crave that full feeling. I love fasting knowing that when I break the fast I can eat AS mich as I want til j can't fit another bite! It's the fat kid in me lol

    Then one day a week , usually weekend, I will start my feeding earlier in the day and finish earlier. Usually when I have cheat day or family events where meals start early on.

    Its not the full feeling its the actual digestion process, not to get too graphic but lets say the food isn't digesting, I posted this in the Leangains IF thread to not much avail, but its literally like liquid. I'm Going back to 6 meals a day to see if its actually the diet or what. Started a probiotic and have been on only staples for a couple weeks. I'm going to do a recomp this summer after I get back from my trip, probably going to run Anabeta Elite and erase or pro depending on how I like this run, and I plan on trying to incorporate IF then for sure, becuse I definitely prefer that diet over anything I've ever done, I have an inner fat kid in me too lol. Good to have you bro! Any suggestions would be great from you all. I probaly an\m not going to go into too much detail about workouts and diet I unless I feel its important to note.

    Three days of being back to 6-7 meals compared to IF/lean gains and stomach/digestion is back to normal?! I guess it was the diet bummer cause I prefer IF over standard protocol!

    Glad to have u Rosie! What do think of my set up? I've had success with shred matrix b4 but never used either PES supp. What thinking of starting erase first for a week or two then adding AT2 just so I know! Please don't expect one of your famous type logs I'll do my best with the time I have.

    If you've used Shred Matrix before, then you're fine starting with that and using it right through, IMO.

    As far as Erase and Alpha-T2, there are so many ways you can do this...You can start using Erase with the Shred Matrix if you want - run from week 1. Then, after a week you should definitely know what difference Erase makes and can add Alpha-T2 into the mix in either week 2 or 3...Or, use Shred Matrix standalone for a single week, add Erase in for week 2, and then Alpha-T2 for week 3...

    How are you planning on dosing Erase and Alpha-T2 (that will help me make the best recommendation)?

    I don't have much time either these days - hence why the once weekly updates I've done for several months, LOL. Regardless, log how you want, bud - as much or as little information as you feel is necessary, noting any changes and progress towards your goals, etc., and maybe notes on any effects from the supplements if you've never used them before.

    Alpha-T2 is 1-2 caps first thing and 1-2 caps 6-8 hours later...Ok, so looking at that...

    One bottle of Alpha-T2 is going to last you 22-30 days (3-4 weeks). One bottle of erase is going to last you 30-45 days (4-6 weeks). One bottle of Shred Matrix lasts 21 days (3 weeks).

    I would say then, to make the most of each product and get the most benefit of having them stacked together as long as possible:

    Week 1 - Erase
    From Week 2 - Erase and Alpha-T2
    From Week 3 - Erase, Alpha-T2, and Shred Matrix

    Shred Matrix will finish after Week 8. As will Alpha-T2 around as well (depending on whether you use three or four caps daily). And possibly Erase (although this is likely to go for a further 2-4 weeks on its own).

    In the end though, what you do is entirely up to you. You can play around with things and see how the best suit you.

    Currently using shred matrix pre-contest and from what I can gather it seems to be working. Not a lot of hunger binges and my cravings for sweets seem to drop. Not sure if its a mental aspect or something else, but for me it doesnt matter as long as Im happy with the end results. Ill be adding AT2 or shift again in a week or so.

    Good luck!

    Shred matrix worries me only bc of the phaseous vulgaris (white kidney bean extract) it is a carb blocker/inhibitor but also could potentially inhibit absorption of other supps taken with or near it.. I've used it before but dosing was a pain, I prefer animal cuts

    Yes I had great results as far as no binging and no sugar craving with it last time I used it. I'm going to start off with 2 caps per dose to try and make the bottles last longer

    Okay just killed legs this am! Still feeling a little under the weather but oh well! Starting this week with just shred matrix plus staples.

    Dosing 2caps immediately post workout will dose another 2 caps 35 mins b4 my 12pm meal.

    Workout was great intensity, strength was great despite feeling like crap. Holding a lot of water from the last three days of eating basically whatever I wanted. Today is back on the wagon. Just trying to get a quick update on phone b4 I head off to work.

    Weight this am on empty stomach was 182.4lbs my guess is I'll be back around 176 by weds or so.

    Rosie or anyone else, since I have a pre and post workout shake when would the best time be to dose my am dose of shred matrix, today I dosed immediately after workout about 5 mins b4 my shake then I usually have first real meal 30-40 mins after shake. I know the dosing says 30-45 min b4 food so I'm wondering if I should dose b4 pre w/o meal (shake and ezekiel toast)?

    It depends on what your pre and post-training "shakes" are. If they contain a reasonable amount of calories in, then you don't really want to dose with.

    If you're overly concerned with it, you could always just dose Shred Matrix at the same time you do your Erase and/or Alpha-T2 (this is actually what I do).

    I would do 30 mins prior to anything other than aminos personally, wouldnt wanna risk inhibiting absorption by taking too close to food/shakes

    Quick update, probably try and do this then do a little more in depth weekly update on Sundays.

    Just wanted to note that as expected 1st day on shred matrix yesterday and appetite suppression is great even at my worst time of day which is right when I get home from work, (I usually want to eat everything and anything) it was very manageable! Remember the recommended dosing is 3caps twice a day I'm only doing 2 twice a day to experiment and hopefully make these bottles last longer. The plan right now is in 3 weeks to add in erase at 2 caps a day for a week the add in the AT2, I'm really struggling on holding off, but I really want to run the PES stuff through the end of my cut (about 10 weeks). The AT2 won't last that long but the erase will.

    Had a great intense (Greg Plitt style) chest/calves workout this am followed by 15 min HIIT cardio. Back tomorrow!!!!

    Definitely noticed a big difference taking my shred matrix at 330 then getting up at 400 and eating my pre w/o. Second dose will be around noon! Have a great day y'all! Get up off your ass and make yourself great!!
