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
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?

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.

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 monthsOriginally Posted by bolt10
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.

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

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.
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
09-05-2012, 11:56 PM
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.

Day 11: Legs and HIIT
Wow, today kicked my ass.
10 min foam roller
Leg Press Pyramid-
2 reps, 4 reps, 6 reps, 8 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps, 4 reps, 2 reps: Weight changed accordingly.
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
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.

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.
09-11-2012, 12:30 PM
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!Originally Posted by Clemenza

Alright guys here's the promised post. Sorry for the wait on an update.
Weight: 171 (-7 lbs)
Just to be clear here ~5 lbs of this is water weight so reastically I've lost around 2 lbs which I'm still very happy with and is right on track with my goals.
Lifts- I've been to the gym several times since my last post and had good workouts. My lifts haven't jumped or anything so I'm gonna skip writing out all the numbers but you can find them throughout the log.
7/11 (today)- Shoulders
Diet has been great. The only thing to report is that Saturday I had a carb up and enjoyed the first football tailgate of the year with the girl and friends. I've hovered between 1800-2100 calories consistently.
Life update- I decided to include this so you all know why I'm going to be posting a little less often then at the start of the log. I've just switched to a pre physical therapy major at my university and have added a ton of course load over the next year. I'm very excited about my decision and look forward to learning new things and eventually doing this as a career. I've also been recently hired as a server at a very nice resturaunt here in town and am looking forward to the extra income. I'm sure nutraplanet will enjoy my extra income as well as a good deal of it will probably end up going their way
I'll have a mini review of protocol and SSv2 up soon because I just recieved my Labor Day order in and can't wait to try them out.
On a final note here's what I'm thinking for the remaining 6 weeks of this log.
Week 2-6: Alphamine w/ 25 mg Ephedrine
Week 4-8 (and 2 weeks following the conclusion): AnaBeta Elite @ 4 caps a day.
I'm pretty confident I've experienced all the initial effects of Alphamine and can't wait to see what the remaining 6 weeks bring to the table!

Cool picking up the pre-PT. I started down that road then veered off, but you should enjoy it if you look forward to it! Definitely try to accumulate as much as you can in college, great place full of resources if you focus correctly.

Man I can't believe this log has already been going for a couple weeks now. Seems like I just started Alphamine yesterday and I'm still loving every day of it!
7/12- Rest day
DB Flyes: I really like to throw these in when I don't do BBB assistance. I noticed a lot of growth in my chest when I was bulking and added these in. I really focus on keeping my arms straight and emphasizing a full pec "stretch" (although it feels more like a tear )
10 minute foam roller
5 minute warmup cycle
8x 30 sec sprint, 1 min easy
5 minute cool down
10 minute static stretching
Nutrition: I hit the gym really hard yesterday because I knew I would be going to dinner with the guys to watch the Packers/Bears game (GOOO PACK.. I'm a huge Packers fan). I took a SSv2 before the meal and kept it as clean as possible. I ended up with ~800 calories of chicken wings and sweat potatoe fries. SSv2 really seemed to keep my bloating down and I look forward to using this stuff everyday after the log ends to really judge it but my initial feelings are very positive. The rest of the day was kept very clean and I ended up with 2200 calories on the day with ~180 g protein.
The only bad part of yesterday was my first experience with Protocol Evolved by Genomyx. I really love Genomyx's products and they are one of the most exciting companies out there right now along with PES and SNS, but I didn't enjoy the new Protocol much at all. The ingredient panel is excellent, but I didn't enjoy it. The taste was pretty awful, it took forever to mix (which is normal w/ Leucine I don't hold this against Genomyx), and the texture was very gritty. I took 4 scoops preWO and started feeling very nauseous towards the end of my workout and on the walk home I had to stop to puke 3 times. Protocol is the thing I changed about my diet, supps, etc yesterday and as soon as I got it out of my system I felt better instantly. However, this could be just a coincidence and I will continue to try protocol preWO and hopefully the side effects don't persist.
I'm about to go get in my favorite form of cardio, basketball! Have a good day guys.

Sunday 9/16- Rest
Monday 9/17- Legs
10 min foam roller
3x8 @120 lbs
Calf Raises using Smith Machine and step
3x15 @ 250 lbs
10 minute static stretching
Notes: Legs were really gassed by the end of the workout, but the strength in my legs post-injury seems to be returning slowly but surely. I also have some minor chronic lower back pain and by the end of squatting my back was feeling pretty rough, but I toughed it out and am already feeling back to normal.
Nutrition: Yesterday I had a minor cheat meal with some Mexican and some frozen yogurt, but didn't over eat and while I was not in a deficit for the day I was not far over my maintenence calories and am not worried about the impact on my progress. Today I'm right at 2000 calories and 200 g protein.
I enjoyed SSv2 again yesterday before my cheat meal and didn't get much of the normal bloat I have when eating a meal outside of my diet.
I also tried Protocol Evolved again today and had a much better experience with it. I still don't care much for the taste, but it didn't make me sick today and I noticed some nice endurance effects today. I look forward to finishing a tub and seeing how it compares to iForce's Compete. Whichever one I end up liking better at the end of the tub will probably become my staple for my Leucine product. Let the competition begin!
On a final note, the edition of ephedrine to Alphamine has been awesome the past few days. Fantastic energy levels, appetite suppression, and thermogenisis. I've been sweating all day and man does it feel great!
