I joined this site because I've been wanting to try a month of USP, and then evaluate progress and then adjust dosage or add supplements. As I have found it hard to find any legitimate reviews that were helpful and informative to me, I decided just to track my own progress and share with you guys how my month of hard training goes. Any advice would be appreciated.
A little background information:
I'm 19 years old, 6'1 about 185, and about to finish my first year of college. I played football in highschool, where I weighed a cut 190 pounds. Many, many beers later and a year of a horrible diet have left me down 5-10 pounds, which I attribute to muscle loss from lack of working out. While I do not look that out of shape, my abs have almost disappeared and my chest and arms have become considerably less dense. I miss the feeling of having a more dense feeling body, and would like to get back to the cut, lean look I used to have. A month of improved diet and weight training 3-4 days a week showed good results, but I am ready to kick it up a notch before summer.
Sunday - Back/Bicep - 20 x 100 yard sprints
Monday - Shoulders/Tricep/forearm/floor abs - a couple miles jogging
Tuesday - rest up, play a little tennis maybe?
Wednesday - Chest/machine abs - - jumprope, brisk bike ride
Thursday - legs/bi/tri/forearms - bleachers
No drinking on workout days, at least 8 hours of sleep a night.
Diet and supplements:
I will be eating 3 hearty but healthy meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), taking two pills of with each meal, and 3 small meals.
Basic schedule looks like breakfast at 8:00, snack at 11:15, lunch at 1:30, snack and Jack3d at 3:30, workout from 4:00-5:30 or 6:00, Wheybolic Extreme 60 immediately after, and a good dinner whenever I am hungry that night.
At my age, I decided a non-hormonal supplement would be best, and a high protein, low carb diet would also be better at my age than heavy supplementation. I will be drinking on the weekends, and will not be taking prime on those days. Please refrain from lecturing on alcohol. Also, please feel free to kindly give advice as far as diet and workout goes. I am very open to good advice. Goals are to replace my growing beer belly with lean mass, while improving strength and throughout my entire body. I will update this once a week with my opinion on weight and mass, density, recovery, and strength. I will also pay attention to appetite, sleep, and libido.
