  1. Getting lean with the help of USPLabs and PES


    So the products that I'm logging are Compound 20 from USPLabs and Erase Pro from PES. I'm also thinking about throwing in PRIME but I don't see it doing much with Erase Pro in the mix, but if you guys have different opinions please do share.

    Staples; multivitamin, fish oil, bcaa (modern bcaa from USPLabs), protein powder, beta alanine, creatine mix, alcar, caffeine

    Its going to be a cut, and diet is going to be low carb (whole grains only) and around 500 calories under maintenance level.

    I'm doing a PHAT routine which is a mix of hypertrophy and power training + some steady state cardio in the mornings + HIIT on ''rest'' days.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  6. Day 2: Second day on Compound 20 and Erase Pro. I opened my Modern BCAA fruit punch today, I really like the taste, definitely better than the grape bulk Modern BCAA I have. I did HIIT in the morning for 30 minutes on a bike. Good workout and I was sweating like crazy, but I always do when I do HIIT. No noticeable effects so far but hey its day 2. Going to hit the weights later today, Jonbero out.

  10. Good stack. I will be stacking compound 20 with 5aohp soon just a little different.

  11. Day 4; definitely starting to notice something now. I keep running to the bathroom and getting kind of horny... Erase Pro is better than regular Erase at least at boosting libido. Can't really say I'm seeing anything in the mirror but its day 5 so really not even expecting to. Haven't seen any change in work outs. Good stack tho, so far I'm liking it.

  12. Ok its day 9 now; starting to notice that I'm getting hungrier and thirstier. Haven't done any weight training for a while, I've been a bit busy lately. I've done cardio every morning tho. I drink 20g of USPLabs Modern BCAA throughout the day, 10 before cardio and 5g + 5g split between my meals. Fruit punch flavor is good Erase Pro is still keeping my libido high. A question about C20 dosing; so my workout schedule is usually the following; cardio in the morning and weights around 6pm. Should I take the second dose at lunch or before doing weights?

  13. Day 10; Starting to notice that my strength is going up a bit even when on a cut. Also getting a bit aggressive... For some reason my gym didn't have any warm water today so I had to take an ice cold shower. I was really pissed off and I kind of exploded to the staff which is not like me at all... I'm known to have nerves of steel.

    Day 1; Upper body power day

    Pressing Power Movement: Flat dumbbell presses; 3 sets of 3-5 reps
    Assistance pressing movement: Weighted dips; 2 sets of 6-10 reps
    Assistance pressing movement: Seated dumbbell shoulder presses; 3 sets of 6-10 reps
    Pulling Power Movement: Bent over rows; 3 sets of 3-5 reps
    Assistance Pulling movement: Weighted Pull ups; 2 sets of 6-10 reps
    Auxiliary Pulling movement: Rack chins; 2 sets of 6-10 reps
    Auxiliary curling movement: Cambered bar curls; 3 sets of 6-10 reps
    Auxiliary extension movement: Skull crushers; 3 sets of 6-10 reps

    Its a mix of power - and hypertrophy training. Very pleased with this stack. I think I'm starting to look leaner & meaner. I can definitely see the difference between regular Erase and Erase Pro, regular Erase didn't make me aggressive at all + the libido boost from Erase Pro is crazy. I hope someone can answer my question from my post above about C20 dosing.

  14. Day 11; still feeling very strong, I feel very energetic in the gym! I keep getting leaner and leaner. I'm hoping to have good definition on my abs at the end of the bottles. Today was a lower body power day;

    Day 2; Lower body power day
    Pressing Power Movement: Squats; 3 sets of 3-5 reps
    Assistance pressing movement: Hack Squats; 2 sets of 6-10 reps
    Assistance extension movement: Leg extensions; 2 sets of 6-10 reps
    Pulling Power Movement: Deadlift; 3 sets of 3-5 reps
    Assistance pulling movement: Stiff legged deadlifts; 3 sets of 5-8 reps
    Assistance pulling/curling movement: Lying leg curls; 2 sets of 6-10 reps
    Auxiliary calf movement: Standing calf raise; 3 sets of 6-10 reps
    Auxiliary calf movement: Seated calf raise; 2 sets of 6-10 reps

    Tomorrow is HIIT + Abs

  17. Day 12; I did HIIT today in the morning on a bike and played soccer in the afternoon. My new routine is the ****... Every single muscle in my body is sore, but I think its just a good sign. No pain no gain right? I hope I will make some kind of miracle recovery for tomorrow so I don't have to skip my chest & arms workout. Abs are starting to pop out. Hard training and a strict diet pays off guys. I got compliments from my friend today, he said I look much leaner than before

    Tomorrow I will do some steady state cardio in the morning and chest hypertrophy training in the afternoon. Joni out!

  18. Day 14; yesterday I was swimming in the morning and I did my chest & arms hypertrophy workout in the afternoon;


    Day 4; Chest and arms hypertrophy day
    Pressing Power Exercise speed work: Flat dumbbell presses; 6 sets of 3 reps with 65-70% of normal 3-5 rep max
    Hypertrophy pressing movement: Incline dumbbell presses; 3 sets of 8-12 reps
    Hypertrophy pressing movement: Push ups; 3 sets of 12-15 reps
    Hypertrophy fly movement: Incline dumbbell flyes; 2 sets of 15-20 reps
    Hypertrophy curling exercise: Cambered bar preacher curls; 3 sets of 8-12 reps
    Hypertrophy curling exercise: Dumbbell concentration curls; 2 sets of 12-15 reps
    Hypertrophy curling exercise: Hammer curls; 2 sets of 15-20 reps
    Hypertrophy extension exercise: Seated tricep extension with cambered bar; 3 sets of 8-12 reps
    Hypertrophy extension exercise: Cable pressdowns with rope attachment; 2 sets of 12-15 reps
    Hypertrophy extension exercise: Dumbell kickbacks; 2 sets of 15-20 reps

    Strength is going up and I'm losing some weight at the same time! I was still a bit sore from my power training so I trained 2-3 reps short of failure. I'm going swimming again in a moment and later today its back & shoulders hypertrophy time.

  19. Day 16; today I was swimming in the morning and I just came back from my HIIT + abs session. I was rowing for 30 minutes 3 minutes full throttle and 1 minute rest. I checked the scale first time today and I'm down 5 pounds and I'm pretty sure its a combination of water weight and fat because I have more muscle definition now than when I started. Endurance and strength is up. I went all out on my HIIT session but I wasn't as exhausted as usual.

  20. Day 18; had a crazy lower body power workout today, and I topped it off with 20 minute cardio on a bike. Body composition is changing slowly but surely. I have been spot on with my diet, except I've been having 1 cheat meal every saturday, usually pizza. What do you guys think about cheat meals? I saw a study that said its only going to slow you down but so many people believe its good for you. It also helps me stay strict with my diet when I know I can have a delicious pizza once a week haha. One thing I've started to notice is that I sweat like a maniac. Endurance is also trough the roof, you can see my routine from my first post and it consists of many heavy compound moves and I didn't experience fatigue whatsoever. Even after my 20 minute cardio session on the bike I felt like I could go on easily.

    Yes it does but there was a study on the articles section that showed that having 1 cheat meal a week only slowed down the progress of the participants. However I've been reading a lot about the subject lately since it interests me and most of the articles I've read are in favor of having 1 cheat meal a week etc. This is from T Nation

    The issue that arises in any discussion of cheat days is that from a purely scientific or research based standpoint, the studies are conflicting and the conclusions that are most solid aren't always applicable.

    Essentially, the idea of using cheat days is to get leptin-depleted individuals to increase leptin levels, which will result in all the benefits listed above. That would be great, but the problem is that often those using cheat days simply aren't leptin-depleted; at least, not insofar as their metabolic rate is slowing to a significant degree.

  25. I had to order more modern bcaa cus the fruit punch was finito. I take 20 grams every day so it goes pretty fast lol. I ordered the White Blue Raspberry flavor and it's much better IMO. Tastes very good!

  26. Hey guys, its day 20 and feelin' good. I finished my hypertrophy chest workout 15 minutes ago, I did 20 minutes steady state cardio on a treadmill after my weight training. Cardio after weights is also a pretty debatable topic so feel free to state your opinions and create some discussion guys. I use my Polar heart rate monitor nearly every time I workout and I have noticed that my heart rate is slightly lower than usual when training, I'm wondering what this may indicate. Anyway, endurance and strength is still very high and I keep having awesome workouts. I also noticed today that aggression is still there haha. I lost my gym lock and I was really pissed, cursing myself and my stupid life LOL! I realised a bit after how immature and ****ing stupid it was but I couldn't just help my self in the moment... funny

  29. Sorry for not updating for a few days, I've been a bit busy and haven't had much time on the computer.

    I got my 2nd round of C20 and EP in the mail, huge thanks to USPLabs and PES.

    Its day 24 I belive, today was my upper body power day and I noticed strength is up. I was down 5 pounds at one point but now my weight is going up again, and it should be lean muscle mass. My definition is much better now than 4 weeks ago and I'm much more vascular, I can see veins in my arms that weren't there before.

    I'm excited to continue this stack for 4 more weeks, I wouldn't have wanted to stop now when I'm getting great results haha.
