  2. Day 7: 5-14-2012

    Supplement thoughts: Three caps again dosed 1, 1, 1. (Spread out around 4 hours). Didn't eat most of the day sadly, but really not a lot of hunger. This wasn't intentional starvation, but circumstantial!

    Workout: Yesterday was Day one of Phase 4, but I didn't even get a third of the way through. I had to help my girlfriend's dad with something as I got called early on it! Ah well, workout 1 is the one workout that is repeated an extra time so it'll be all good. I'm making a few changes and trying to do some more on the off days since this is a three day lifting program. Kinda got inspired to mess around with some carry training from this article. http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_..._for_mass_gain

    A: Started out with two EZ bar farmers walk: 65 for one minute, minute rest, 55 for one minute.
    B: Shoulder carries: 45 pounds for one minute, minute rest 40 for one minute.
    C: Barbell suitcase carry: 65 pounds for one minute, rest one minute 45 pounds for one minute (both arms same protocol)

    This sucked way worse than I expected and I got quite the cardio workout from it even though it was just walking! One problem I need to alleviate is where I lift is really two small connected rooms so I don't have a lot of walking room. I think if it's nice next time I do these I will do them outside! Fun stuff. Threw in some miscellaneous core work at the end and some jump rope!

Forgot to pack it and was gone most of the day. Did workout which I will type out the details to a bit later. Back to normal today with a dosage of 1, 1, 1.

    I believe I've put it off long enough, I'll breakdown what I'm doing diet wise and post it here and in the beginning.

  5. A bit more about diet: Long been trying to go as Paleo as possible. I'm not full on Paleo, but Paleo principles as best as possible. Also lean gains, lean gains, and more lean gains. I'm not super strict with my window though. It's supposed to be 8 p.m. to noon the next day. I rarely eat before noon, but I'll sometimes eat after 8 p.m. Not a super huge deal to me if I fast for just 15 hours sometimes or just 14.5.

    I'm pretty much anabolic diet/carb cycling with some twists. Here's how I have it setup:

    Day one- Workout day: Low carb, medium calories.

    Day two- Off. Low carb, low calories.

    Day three- Workout day: Med. carb, medium calories.

    Day four- Off. Low carb, low calories.

    Day five- Workout day: Med. carb, medium calories.

    Day 6- Off: High carb, high calories.

    Day 7- Off: Low carb, low calories.

    Low carb days are as low as possible. I'll still get a bit of trace carbs, but usually keep it under 25 g. Medium carb days I'm shooting under 100 grams. And high carb days I don't really give a damn but I'm not counting carbs.

    Calorie wise maintenance hovers around 2600 depending on what calculator one would use. I'm trying to basically eat under maintenance to an extent every day but the high carb and high calorie day. On low calorie days I'm aiming for keeping it under 1800, but I'm not super strict on diet things where I freak out if I get 1801 calories. The medium days I'm more shooting for anywhere from 2300-2600 calories. The high calorie days I don't give a damn where I hit...but I usually try and keep it somewhat reasonable.

  7. I'd love this run if I drop 2 pounds a week, but I know how much weight can fluctuate. Much more interested in the pictures at the end

    Dosing today at 1, 1, 1 again. Thoughts on that protocol as opposed to two?

  8. Anyone experimented with 4 caps a day?

    Forgot about the ol thyroid. Seems it isn't there sometimes Good thinking, probably will keep it to three. Any thoughts on 2, 1 dosing or 1, 2 dosing or 1, 1, 1 as I have been?

    I believe the data I've read showed no impact on thyroid function with t2 usage.

    I just started Alpha T2 today and will log it later. This post caught my eye because I am having an identical experience on the very first day. Not only is appetite suppressed, but I am having to force myself to eat...and not very successfully. I wonder if this effect will continue? If it does, then weight loss will be a snap.

    I look forward to reading the rest of your log...starting now!

    .
    Do the 2,1 dosing. Do the largest dose away from food but near workout

  15. It will. For me the bigger problem is when it wears off, cause I'm hungry as hell.

    I use four caps of Alpha-T2 daily: 2 caps first thing and 2 caps early to mid-afternoon.

    I will probably try this by the end of the log. May run the last week at this dosage.

    Rosie,

    How long have your been using AT2? Does it suppress your appetite? If so, does it continue to do so after continued use?

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    If you look back at my logs, I first started using Alpha-T2 in August 2010 and have pretty much chronically used it since. No, it does not suppress my appetite and never has - nothing does, something you will also learn if you look through previous logs of mine (you can see the complete list of all logs I have kept here).

    I'm still getting some noticeable appetite suppression. It isn't wiping it out completely, but it is definitely making the low calories a little easier to manage. I've been through all your supplement logs before, always a great read for those who never have!

  23. Day 8: 5-15-2012

    Supplement thoughts: Settling into a routine with the AT-2. I pretty much know the effects it is going to give me. Moderate appetite suppression, mild thermo feeling, and next to no stimulant type feeling. At leas this is what I'm good to report on at 3 a day.

    Workout: Day two of phase 4. "Density based muscle building." This is basically E.D.T. with a slight twist for those familar with Charles Staley's program (I'm a longtime HUGE fan of EDT).

    Circuit 1: Perform A1 and A2 back to back for 5 minutes with lighter weight (approx. 15 rep max). After this rest, and increase weight and lift for 5 more minutes. Each exercise performed for 5 reps. Basically the same idea with the other circuits with a difference in no. of reps.

    A1- Front Squat: 95*5 reps for 4 sets.
    A2- Bent over row: 80*5 for 4 sets.
    -----rest-------
    A1- Front Squat: 115*5 reps for 4 sets.
    A2- Bent over row: 95*5 reps for 4 sets.

    B1- Reverse Lunge: 10 lbs*12 reps (6 a leg) for 4 sets.
    B2- High pull: 75 pounds*6 reps for 4 sets.
    B3- DB Bench: 30 pounds * 6 reps for 4 sets.
    -------rest-----------
    B1- Reverse Lunge: 10 lbs*12 reps (6 a leg) for 4 sets.
    B2- High pull: 85 pounds*6 reps for 4 sets.
    B3- DB Bench: 40 pounds * 6 reps for 4 sets.

    C1- Lateral raise: 10 [email protected] reps for 4 sets.
    C2- Thor's Hammer: 20 lbs. @7 reps for 4 sets.
    -------------rest------------------------
    C1- Lateral raise: 10 [email protected] reps for 4 sets.
    C2- Thor's Hammer: 20 lbs. @7 reps for 4 sets.

    Workout thoughts: Took it easy on weight as I want to be able to increase the load every week and it can be a little difficult on some of these exercises. Overall a really solid workout. It's some high volume and going from exercise to exercise with minimal rest is pretty tiring. Definitely satisfied with today's workout.

  24. No real rhyme or reason, but going 2, 1 on my dosing today.

    Any links to that? I have to think that at some point there is going to be an impact depending on the dosage. T2 is clearly a very potent compound. I just hope that PES quality control ensures that there is 150 mcg of T2 in each pill as stated.
