So for a couple weeks I plan on introducing HIIT on the bike (cycling) and rowing so my body can get the benefits of HIIT without some of the additional pounding on my currently pitiful legs.

    Usually I do HIIT in a park close to my house on a big hill for a challenge. I love me some hills feels so good afterward to feel like you've pushed the limits. I do love going for 'exploratory' runs around random neighborhoods. It's fun! and makes jogs or HIIT sessions not so boring.
    Definitely agree on most of that. I need to get a nice bike so I can do some riding to change things up. Usually run outside but this summer has been hotter than hell. Luckily I have an indoor facility with a turf field so I do prowler pushes and sprints inside most of the time.

    That's an awesome facility. I'm jealous. We have an indoor wall climb but I don't climb. I'd kill for indoor turf.

  3. Some sweet Labor Day deals going. Gonna stock up on DAA and maybe some other goodies. Protocol looks so nice but I'll probably get some RecoverPro for cheaper. I like to switch up my BCAA/Leucine sources to keep my taste buds entertained. (I work out fasted a lot and like a hefty dose of Leucine before workout) and there's a great deal out there on Recoverpro and some free goodies out there

    Not to make your decision harder, but I am loving Protocol right now. COP seems to be effective in making my conditioning work easier. I definitely like a solid dose of Leucine pre as well. Peak Beta is also on sale for a great price if you wanted to try a solid dose of COP in something else.

    You've convinced me. I'm gonna go with Protocol although Peak Beta is very solid too. I just can't pass up Protocol's profile at that price. Take my money nutraplanet! You win.

    Bout to hit up the gym will be back tonight with an update.

    Sorry I made you spend your money...

    I have three tubs of Protocol myself! Peak Beta is very similar but I like having my Leucine in my pre-workout as well.

    Not at all. Protocol is the superior product for my needs and COP could be a great addition to my training regimen. I'm really excited to try it. Genomyx has been on its game lately. SSv2 is a great profile.

  8. I meant to get this up yesterday but got caught up in football with friends. So here's the past couple days.

    Day 6: Rest

    There was not a lot to report other than the usual appetite suppresion. Nutrition was normal. Although I did enjoy some nice protein pudding I made.



    Day 7: Legs
    Nutrition: Carb up (2500 calories), 300 g carb from sweet potatoe fries (home made), Nature valley granola bars, yogurt and then post work out treat of whole wheat pancakes and sugar free syrup. Yummmmm.

    Training: 5/3/1 Squat
    95x5
    115x5
    145x3
    165x3
    185x3
    210x6

    BBB assistance
    Legs are still so weak. It's annoying.

    Notes: Was a great couple days and I'm enjoying the long labor day weekend. My mood and over all well being are very high. I'll give Alphamine some credit here for some smooth clean energy. Libido is still sky high and I'm loving it. I didn't expect this out of Alphamine but I am really enjoying it. I'll have a weight update and some picks up tomorrow. Can't believe how much I loved my first week on Alphamine.

    In other news: I think my Labor Day order is going to be 2x Protocol Evolved, 2x SNS DAA, 500g BA, 1x SNS ALCAR, and maybe a SSv2. Thoughts? Other suggestions?

  9. That order you're planning looks pretty good. SSv2 is great. I'm planning on picking up a tub of the new Protocol as well.

    Real solid order. I also really enjoy SSv2. That order looks to cover everything you need (since I am assuming you have the rest of the staples you run).

    For myself I know the DCP and PES prices are also real tempting and I grabbed some Gut Health earlier this week as well. Trying to resist ordering again.

    Oh yea, I've got staples down for the next 6 months

    I grabbed a years worth of Gut Health as soon as it went around ~7$. One of my favorite supplements and something I consider a staple.

    DCP has always had a great profile but I've always considered it woefully under dosed in the ingredients that make it special.

    SSv2 has the best profile of any nutrient repartitioner on the market in my opinion and I was a huge fan of the original. I've got a couple bottles tucked away but the new one is so tempting!

    Should have known you felt that way about both. That is why I only buy DCP on sale and dose it high.

    4 caps 3 times a day + some extra RK would be an awesome non stim cut or recomp. I'm jealous. If my order wasn't so big I'd be tempted to order and do exactly that for 6-8 weeks in the future. With ABE and a GDA (SSv2?) added on I can't imagine the recomp

    Well unfortunately I won't be running Alphamine right now (bulking and don't want to use too many products at once), but I plan to use DCP + Alphamine for my winter recomp in a couple months!

    That should produce very nice results. I'm sure you'll love Alphamine when you start dosing everyday. Any experience with EndoSurge? Looks interesting and a good price on it out there.

    I know I'm a rep so my opinion will sound bias, but EndoSurge is an incredible supplement. Vivid dreams, restful sleep, unreal libido, and some great strength gains. It's also the perfect item to stack with a test booster like DAA or a product like Erase because of it's nature to free up test. You can find just about anyone that's taken EndoSurge and they would give it a similar praise, I assure you.

    I have nothing against reps recommending me their products whatsoever. As long as it's honest, credible info or suggestions bring it to the table! EndoSurge as a GH/test booster looks like a great overall strength, libido, and recovery product.

    I was thinking over some possible future stacks-
    1. EndoSurge + DAA + AnaBeta (Elite if recomping)
    2. Endosurge + DAA + Erase Pro

    Never tried it but seems solid from price and ingredients.

  20. Day 8- Went to the gym but it was closed! Labor Day got me good. Nutrition was normal and nothing new to report.

    Day 9- Chest
    Hit the gym today for some chest I'm now on a 5 rep scheme for the current week of 5/3/1. Did some HIIT on the cycle after.
    95x5
    115x5
    135x3
    155x5
    170x5
    185x7
    BBB assistance (on incline bench)

    10 minutes foam roller
    5 minute warm up on cycle
    15 minutes HIIT
    5 minutes cool down + 10 minutes static stretching

    I struggled today during chest. My final reps at 185 don't show it but I was feeling gassed at 170x5 and just had to push through it. Otherwise I feel great today. I took two scoops alphamine at 8:00 AM this morning and then sat through a 2 hour physics lecture. I didn't get sleepy or unattentive at all and really enjoyed being awake for my AM classes. I haven't weighed in since midway last week so I'll have that for everyone tomorrow. I also have already taken before pictures and will upload them when I have some more to compare to.

    Nutrition for today obviously isn't complete and I actually broke my fast at 3 which is late for me but I look to be at 210 g protein and 2000 calories today.

    Just to give you all an update on what else I'm taking throughout the day here is my supps for a typical day.
    ALCAR 2g preWO or in the morning (really increases alphamine's focus/smooth energy component)
    1 g Agmatine pre WO and 500 mg before big carb meal later in the day
    OT morning and night
    Oximega FO 1 serving per day
    Gut Health 1 serving per day
    2 g BA twice per day
    5 g creatine mono per day
    2 scoops compete pre/intra WO

  21. Day 10- Light Cardio
    Cardio: 30 minutes LISS (walking on a treadmill @2.5 incline, 4.0 mph)
    Nutrition: 1600 calories 150g protein. Since it was an off day lifting I lowered calories slightly.

    Notes: Wow it's hard to believe it's already been 10 days on Alphamine. I'll update weight on day 14 to see what progress I've made. I continue to love the effects on reducing appetite from Alphamine. After 10 days I've noticed no increase in appetite despite cutting and I continue to break my fast well past 2 PM on most days which is when I usually start to get really hungry. Today I broke my fast at 4 PM and could've waited but decided I needed to eat. I also tried a different dosing scheme that I really liked today. I did one scoop morning @ 8 AM, one scoop mid morning @11:30 AM, and my final scoop @6 PM to keep appetite down at night. I really enjoyed dosing it like this and it spreads out Alphamine's effects on energy and appetite over the whole day.

  22. Day 11: Legs and HIIT
    Wow, today kicked my ass.

    Workout:
    10 min foam roller
    Squats
    95x5
    125x5
    145x3
    175x5
    195x5
    210x8

    Leg Press Pyramid-
    2 reps, 4 reps, 6 reps, 8 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps, 4 reps, 2 reps: Weight changed accordingly.

    HIIT:
    5 minute warmup
    15 minute HIIT cycling- 30 seconds sprint, 1 minute easy
    5 minute cool down
    10 minute static stretching

    Excellent workout. I could hardly walk down the stairs leaving the gym.

    Nutrition: 1900 calories, 200 g protein

    Notes:
    Took 1 scoop 3 times today. I'm really enjoying this dosing and I think I'll stick to it for a while to see if the increased energy and appetite suppression I'm experiencing continues.
    Something new to note: thermogenisis! I've never noticed increased heat or sweating from any weight loss product but yesterday and today I found myself drenched by the end of my warm up stretching and foam rolling. I was drenched today leaving the gym and it felt great. Props to PES on this one, this is the first product that has impacted me in this way. I hope it continues throughout the rest of the 8 weeks.
    I also have been taking Alphamine for a boost before a study session and really like this. 2g ALCAR and 1 scoop Alphamine really puts me into focus mood and keeps me my mind from getting foggy.

    I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet but I've seen nothing but great feedback from Endosurge. I ran EP/DAA this summer and loved it. I'm looking forward to adding Endosurge to it next time around.

    Subbed BTW! Great log so far rehj!

  24. Sorry I haven't posted for a few days it's been a hectic last week but I'll be sure to have a lengthy update for everyone tonight.

    I didn't end up ordering any from the labor day sale but it's on my future supp lists and looks very promising. Welcome to the log by the way!
