First off, I'd like to thank Judgement Day & the rest of the Athletix Sports crew for giving me this opportunity to log their new product. From what we've all seen, the in-house testing looked pretty impressive. I'm definitely looking forward to running this as a part of my recomp.
As of this morning, I weighed in @ 170 even. I've been pushing more of a cut type diet/workout routine, but w/ the carb cycling, it's more of a recomp for me. I've dropped a few lbs so far, but know that I have a long way to go to get these abs more visible. I just hit 40, & I'm ready to my mid section more than ever this year.
Before I get much further, I had a quick question for dosing: I'm a worker in a chemical plant. I work rotating 12 hour shifts. This week, I worked nights last night & tonight. I'll get off tomorrow morning @ 6am & be off till Monday, 6am. Today, I woke up @ 4pm, ate some breakfast & dosed my first 2 pills.. Now, what time/when do I dose those 2nd pills? I plan on getting a decent amount of sleep here tonight @ work (I know, leave me alone.. J), so when I get off, I won't be going to sleep.. When I get off @ 6am, I'll be heading straight to the gym for an upper body circuit course. Should I dose about 30 min before hitting the gym?
Because of my shift schedule, my workouts are fairly irregular as well.. When I'm working days, I usually get up @ 3:30am to get to the gym for a good 45 min-1 hour workout. When I work nights, I usually hit the gym on my way home. That workout is dictated by how much rest I get or don't get while @ work. Tonight, the plant is running great, so I should be able to possibly get 3-4 hours of sleep. That tells me that I can get in the gym & have an awesome workout. If I don't get any rest, I usually just sit on the bike & read a magazine or watch sportcenter for about an hour.
My workouts have been an every other day routine. Here's how it's been laid out: Day 1 - upper body circuit. Day 2 - cardio. Day 3 - legs. Day 4 - rest. Day 5 - upper body circuit, etc... On those lifting days, I eat my higher amount of calories/carbs. I've been trying to keep those carbs all complex, but w/ a 4 year old & 2 year old, it gets difficult sometimes.. On cardio days, I shoot for the absolute least amount of carbs as possible. Sometimes, I'll hit zero, others, I may get around 10-20. Still not too shabby.
I'm going to stick w/ this routine maybe throughout this run.. Still not 100% on that. I've notice my chest & traps seems to have lost some of size.. We'll see..
Again, BIG thanks to Athletix for this opportunity!!
