    Yes, AnaBeta is best utilized WITH a meal, but you can also dose it withOUT eating (dependent on the individual and their goals and needs).

    Good question. It says on the bottle that on training days take 2 before your workout and the other 2 before your first big meal postworkout. Off days I just spread it out 4/day like with regular Anabeta.

  4. I'm at work right now but I'm reluctantly going to head to the gym in the morning when I get off. I already have my Air Force Jordan's packed in my bag with all my preworkout goodies. I'm stoked. LEGS.

    Looking back at my last leg day, what do you guys think would be some reasonable goals for me to achieve tomorrow? Get me motivated !

    AnaBeta has many effects. Dose (1 or 2 caps) and time (pre-training, with meal, etc.) your doses with what works BEST for YOU (you will likely have to experiment a little to find this)!

  6. Thinking 160lbs for at least 10 reps is a decent goal to have. 315 for leg press. Thinking about starting some HIIT tomorrow afternoon after I wake up. As long as the legs aren't too sore.

  7. Lifting is gonna have to wait. Gonna get some good sleep and then wake up and go to the gym. Most likely another fasted workout. Wish me luck !

  9. LEGS

    Hello ladies! So here I am for a quick little update. Something to note... Something came up between me and the fiance last night and instead of going home I went to her house after work. So that means I left all my supplements at home with the exception of my preworkout/protein because i had planned on lifting after work. So today I won't be dosing anything. No AlphaT2, Anabeta Elite, etc. which kind of sucks because I was used to it. I don't think this is going to hurt anything though and I will be good as new when I return home from work today. No worries!

    Current weight: 222lbs. I find this to be amazing. I started this log at 235lbs (my end P90X2 weight) and with the help of supplements and AlphaT2 I've already lost 13lbs. I don't LOOK smaller, I don't FEEL smaller, my strength is going UP, the weights been pushed are going UP, and I'm making ALL KINNNNNDS OF GAINNNNS

    LEG EXTENSION: warmup 95x20,20

    SQUATS: 135x10, 160x10,10,10 GOAL!!!

    FRONT SQUATS: 70x10, 80x10, 90x10, 100x10 UNEXPECTED OUTCOME!!! Next attempt will be 100x10,10,10. Can't wait to finally get the fronts up to 135.

    LEG PRESS: 135x15, 225x12, 315x10,10,10 GOAL!!!

    SEATED CALF RAISE: 100x20, 110x20

    HAMSTRING CURLS: 95x10, 105x10 will be going up on this next time for sure

    GLUTE-HAM RAISE: BW+25x10,10

    LEG EXTENSION: burnout 80x8, 4 extremely slow negatives

    Ended with a 10 minute walk at a 3.7mph pace and 5% incline. Kept the heart rate between 130-150.

    I was happy with today. This was done FASTED about an hour after I woke up. This just makes me think what I could do with some food in me a few hours before working out. Got a nice solid pump not just in the legs but everywhere. Leg press felt reallly good. Came down deep each time and it was strenuous to do the last 1-2 reps so I'm right where I need to be. I feel like front squats get a lot of funny looks in the gym. I just don't think you see people doing them anymore. I like to keep my feet slightly inside shoulder width and I go ass to grass on that one and I get extremely low. My butt almost touches the floor. Helps work with your depth. Hardest part is keeping the bar up so it also works on your chest/forearms.

    I'm about halfway through Alpha T2 and I think this product is speaking for itself. I have not noticed any appetite suppression and I blame this on lifting big. I'm always hungry still but mentally I keep telling myself to eat clean and keep it small and spread out. The internal temperature is still up. Usually one each workout day about 10-15 minutes in (usually my 2nd or 3rd exercise) I really feel the heat pick up and the beads of sweat start to roll. It's like I'm doing a cardio workout! Feels great! The "yohimbe-brain" feeling I described from before has not returned. And the scale as well as the pictures is proving to me that Alpha T2 is really stepping up to the plate in helping me get rid of some of this fat I don't want hanging around. And I'm only HALFWAY through??? Fantastic! Pictures to come Friday as usual. Tomorrow will be shoulders day. I'm going to see what I did last time and try to establish some goals in here.

    Stay tuned,

  11. Goals for tomorrow:

    With the shoulder press being the main movement for me on shoulder days I'm really going to focus in on that. I am going to open with something I've never actually tried: the Barbell shoulder press. I personally like the DB press more because of the stabilization required to move the weight. Seeing as how i've never done the BB shoulder press I'm not sure what the numbers will look like. I do know what I'd like to see with everything else.

    OVERHEAD DB SHOULDER PRESS: 45x10,10x10 or at least 45x10,8,8 followed by a dropset to maximize the hypertrophy
    OVERHEAD HS PRESS: 135x12,12,12
    BB SHRUGS: 235x12,12,12 with a burnout weight of 185xmax followed by 135xmax
    DB SHRUGS: Most likely will skip this for tomorrow... depends on how I feel
    TRAP PULLS: Haven't done these in quite some time. Looking to go for 50x10,10,10 and dropsetting
    LATERAL RAISES: 20x12,12,12 Do you guys prefer straight arm or bent for this?
    FRONT RAISES: 25x12,12,12 w/ burnout overextension 20xmax
    REAR DELT FLYS: 20x12,10,10 with machine dropset afterwards 105xMax, 90xMax, 75xMax
    LOWER DELT CABLE RAISE: This won't change. I may try 30lbs to start and aim for at least 6.

    In all my exercises (with the exception of legs) I aim for 6-12 reps. Once I approach the high side of the repetitions I know its time to move up in weight

    Stay tuned,

    Don't focus on numbers, especially with an exercise you've never done before. It will feel weird the first few times you do the BB Military Press if you've never done it before, but it will become more natural fast enough. Will you do them sitting, standing, or in the Smith Machine?

    As far as lateral raises, personally elbows as straight as I can for the most part, but if they're slightly bent (which they can a little with heavier weights) it's not an issue.

    Thank you for your input Rosie! I'm going to do them standing. I'm going to start with the bar so I can get a feel for the form first and to help figure out where my grip needs to be.

    I've always attempted side and front raises with mostly straight arms arms because I feel like bending them takes away from the motion a little bit kind of like I'm cheating so I will try to keep them as straight as possible. I watched Pumping Iron yesterday and noticed them when Arnold did front raises he didn't stop the motion once his arms became parallel with the floor... He continued to lift the weight all the way up until his arm was straight up in the air. Is there benefit to doing it like that for a front raise?

    I'm very excited to get in the gym today I absolutely love shoulders. I'm going to try and convince my brother to come with me so I can use him as a spot and so he can help push me to failure and burn me out on the negatives.

    No worries

    Standing and using only the barbell is fine - this will allow you to ensure correct form (although sometimes it can feel funny and form is better WITH additional weight - you'll figure it out soon enough).

    Bending them is not cheating, but you don't want them TOO bent - there is a degree of elbow flexion where I believe you "take away" from the exercise...You do not have to pause at the midpoint of every exercise, no - it depends on what you are training for and personal preference...

  19. SHOULDERS

    Weight: 226lbs full of water

    BB SHOULDER PRESS: This felt great. Unfortunately it zapped all my energy for the DB shoulder press but thats OK with me. I had my brother there to help me get some negatives. 45x20, 95x10,6 70x12... this will become my working set weight from now on

    DB SHOULDER PRESS: 40x7, 30x10,10,12 6 negatives that hurt like a bitch

    SHRUGS: 135x20, 245x12,12,12 185x12, 135x10,10 Now Rosie I'm sure this isn't a problem for you, but damn that bar!!! My crotch kept getting in the way lol

    STRAIGHT ARM RAISE: 20x12, 25x12,12 took it beyond parallel each time and it felt awesome

    LATERAL ARM RAISE: 20x12,12,12 straight arms the whole time

    REAR DELT RAISE: 10x12,12,12 Machine 120x12,8

    UPRIGHT ROWS/TRAP PULL: 65x12,12 75x9

    PULLEY DELT RAISE: 20x8,8,8

    Felt good all the way around. Shoulders are jello. Felt good to take all my supplements again. When I woke up I took all my usuals (Bronkaid, Caffeine, Lico, T-XL, Raspberry Ketone, Alpha T2x2) and boy did my body miss them. Immediately felt my internal temperature kick up and my heartrate was elevated for the first few hours. Things have normalized now. I was full of energy in the gym and loved every minute of it. I just love being in the gym. Odd thing to note: My libido is playing tricks on me. I'm not sure what was going on this time, but I was horny as hell in the gym. Nothing obvious, but I was just very turned on for no reason at all lol. Plenty of eye candy !

    Did not do any cardio afterwards. My brother wanted to get out of there. He lifted a few things with me but kept it very light. He tore his labrum in his shoulder a few years ago. But it was nice to have him there to help me. Going to do my abs, shower up, and go out for a little bit with the little bro! It was and will be a great night!

    Tomorrow is an off day. Might do some cardio if I feel like it. I don't have to work tonight or tomorrow!

    Thanks everyone for the motivation. I didn't meet all my goals but I still pushed myself to and beyond my limits.

    Stay tuned,

    You might not have met your goals for that session, but that does not mean you won't - you WILL; just keep ON! Pushing yourself as hard as you can, above and beyond, is all you can ask of yourself - next time that you do it, or maybe the time after, your "best" will be better than it was (very likely), so don't let it discourage you. ALWAYS keep striving for BETTER!

    This is exactly the type of comment I love seeing and definitely need to hear. At no point while I was in the gym did I get discouraged because I knew I didn't meet the goal. I had a great time mainly because my brother was there to help me get through it and I was feeling phenomenal throughout the whole routine. Got a good stretch and left feeling exhausted but time well spent. Today is an off day and I must say my traps are extremely sore. Hopefully I can get the fiance to give them a rub
