    Thanks Guys, that ish was hard as hell.

    I'm starting to get the DOMS now. I'm rather stiff.

    24/09/2012 Part 1
    I began this morning at 645 am with fasted 45 minute Treadmill work. I kept the heart rate between 65-80%. It was 4 degrees this morning and i was sweating like crazy. My GF, who does exersise science suggeted doing more than 30 mins cardio each time as it takes until 30 mins to hit your fat burning mode. I figured it couldnt hurt to try. I'll see the results at the end of the week.

    One thing i hate about fasted morning cardio is that it turns my appetite on! Not even alphamine is holding back the hunger.....Just 2 more hours until i can break the fast!

    Alright, i wasnt sure if I would make it but i hit the gym again tonight to get a weights session in. I continued circuit style. Tonight's workout was chest tri shoulders circuit. I did 10 reps of each with no break and 90 seconds in between circuits. I did this for 7 circuits before dropping to six reps and slower repetitions for the last three circuits.

    Dips
    upright rows
    Lateral raises
    Pushups
    Incline db press

    After the circuit
    3 sets of 8 reps incline flies (4010 tempo)
    3 sets of 8 reps incline skull crushers (4010 tempo)

    This workout was a easier then yesterday (understandably). Id like to make this one tougher but need to work out how. Suggestions appreciated as always.

    diet
    This was spot on today
    Meal one was 4 hours post training
    2scoops whey
    200g baked beans (sauce washed off)
    200g ground beef/mince
    container of salad

    meal 2
    300g ground beef/mince
    200g beans
    200g of Chobani greek yohgurt+berries + 1 scoop choc whey

    in between
    100g ground beef.

    Meal 3
    330g lean pork with light honey + soy sauce basting
    1/4 cup of white rice
    1 whole bellpepper/capsicum
    Carrots+peas
    1.5 scoops of whey.


    Postworkout (outside eating window) 1.5 scoops xtend with added Lucien.

    Im very happy with the diet today. I think it would be impossible for me to gain weight on this.

    Looks good.. If you wanna make the circuit harder, try doing flat or incline barbell bench instead of push ups, add one more exercise to the routine, and try taking your rep range to 15-20 for each exercise. The high rep range kills. I will be doing this on my next circuit.. Keep rockin it bruh

    I dont normally do circuit training, but try 8x8 with 2-3 chest/tri exercises, and only rest 30 or so seconds between each set. The weight used is usually higher vs a circuit, and you'll seriously want to puke by the time you're finishing up.

    Example

    8x8 - Incline Press
    8x8 - Dips
    8x8 Dumbbell flyes

    If done with proper weights and rest, you'll be soooooree and winded/nauseous

    Yeah, usually i do a routine like that with deads and squats, just because I have a tendency to hurt my self on low volume/high intensity.

    Another early morning session today. Hit the gym at 640am. with a scoop of alphamine. Ive decided one is all i can take precardio. I alternated between walking and jogging (five mins each) on a moderate incline for 45 mins, followed by some ab work. Aside from that today was a rest day.

    Diet:

    Meal 1
    1.5 lean pork steak
    1 can chicken light mayo,
    1/2 large can baked beans with no sauce.
    1 bell pepper

    Meal 2
    1 lean pork steak
    1/2 large can baked beans (no sauce)
    1 bell pepper
    300mls liquid egg whites with 2 scoops of whey

    Meal 3
    Nandos chicken wrap: I believe this had 1.5 chicken breasts (upon request) lettus, hot sauce and wholemeal wrap
    200mls liquid egg white, with 2 scoops whey +1 table spoon coco

    Progress
    I started to notice my chest dividing again yesterday with a line separating high and low pecs. Today when flexed i can see three separate heads on my shoulders. I am also more vascular overall. while working out a lot of veins are appearing through my forearms and biceps.

    I'm due to do the squats, dead, rows, chins and sholder presses tomorrow. Hopefully some doms will wear off overnight otherwise i will have to do a lighter session.

    thanks for the tips Kev. I'll try it out after this week. I want to try stick to circuits so i can determine how effective they are.
    With all the compound work i'll do for my first 3 workouts this week, do you think it would be good to do some high rep cable and iso work over the whole body on the fourth day (final workout for the week) instead of more compound work? or stick to the compound lifts? I thought the high rep work might help with definition and level of striations later on.

    I'll throw bench in if i can. Thats why i was doing incline db work. everyone was using the benches last night (being monday) and i just kept everything in one area so i could move between exercises quickly. If its quiet next time i'll try add in flat bench.

    Alright so today was good. I'm fairly sure i was WAY under maintenance cals today after a hard workout. I dont know if i ate enough but i'm fairly sure i ate enough protien. It was just one of those days where i relied on shakes.

    Diet
    2pm
    Chicken + salad (70g protein)
    2 scoops whey (48g protien) blended with a banana

    5pm
    Met-RX RTD 51 (51 protien)
    few potato crisps (bad i know but i litterally only ate 8-10)

    630pm
    2 servings of Chicken bake (40-50g protien)
    I didn't make this but i saw the girlfriend putting it together. it was chicken breast, a few vegies, high protein greek yohgurt, chicken + cream soup (or something), light cheese and shredded wholemeal wraps. the cheese and soup were not nutritionally the best, but wasnt what id consider bad overall- especially considering how little id ate the rest of the day. The majority was protein.

    9pm
    Met rx RTD 51 shake.

    Workout
    I missed cardio today. My legs were sore yesterday and i felt an old injury lingering in my calf shin-so i thought id have a day off of the treadmill. Basketball practice was also planned for the evening but got cancelled. So i only did weights today.

    Workout was a circuit of
    Squats
    Deadlifts
    Barbell row
    Chinups
    Behind the neck seated Shoulder press

    I did 7 circuits just like the other day (including two warmup sets). My heart rate at the end was about 170bpm. I managed to go up 10kg in weight for the third circuit. This was for squats and deads. I had to drop back next circuit though. I'll aim for two at this weight next time.

    After the circuit i did
    3 sets of db concentration curls
    2 sets of machine preacher curls.

    Again...I was exhausted. This workout is killer.

    With my limited knowledge and a natural liking for cables and isolated high reps I would vote for the later. Again, just a bit of a biased opinion though, not "science" by any stretch of the imagination!

    Keep killing Doc!

    Today was an off day. I did cardio for 45 mins first thing in the morning at 645 am burning 600 calories.
    As the day turned out with fasting and work i didnt get to eat until 330 pm. Nutritiiously my diet wasnt great today, but was definatly good calorie deficit wise

    Meal 1
    1 can of chicken
    1 can of baked beans
    2 scoops of whey

    Meal 2
    met rx meal replacement

    Meal 3
    Rotisery chicken (everything but the breasts and skin) I ate the breasts yesterday
    Muscle milk RTD

    Meal 4
    180g Chobani greek yogurt
    1 scoop of whey

    I really noticed how good alphamine was today. I was energetic all day and kept going strong at work in spite of a solid cardio session and not eating. When it wore off after work i felt like **** and extremly tired-as id only eaten one meal by 6pm. But i had things to do, so i took another scoop and was back to it again. The difference was amazing!

    Today was a bit of a set back. I was setting up to do the squats,deadlifts, rows, chins, shoulder press circuit and doing a warmup circuit. I ended up pulling my lowerback on 40kg deadlifts-lol-. I was just trying to get some blood flowing in the warmup and felt my back pull/tweak on the way down. I dont think its a bad injury, just an aggravation (for anyone thats followed previous logs of mine will know i get back problems.) so it should be okay.

    I ended up modifying my work out to take my lower back out of it as much as possible. I kept most things to 3 sets of 15 to keep the weight light.
    workout was



    Lunges: 3x30
    Superset with
    Chinups: 3x15
    +Chinups x10 +wide grip chins +5

    Seated rows:3x15
    Superset with machine rear delt flies: 3x15

    Hammer streangth Lat pulldowns
    3x15

    Seated barbell shoulder press (Behind neck)
    4x12

    Incline db curl
    3x10

    Spider curls
    3x15
    Superset with
    Incline rear delt flies: 3x15

    Notes

    Ive started to get a feint bicep cuts.

    Diet:
    Much like other days. Still strict. I had a carb up over the weekend. Back to low carb during the week.

    The carbs i ate were as follows. I had these once each with carbs each meal over the weekend
    : wholemeal wrap, baked beans, wholemeal english muffins, subway footlong. Postworkout was a shake that consist of 1 table spoon honey, 2 tablespoon greek yoghurt, 22 g oats, 1 banana, 2 scoops of whey .

    Weigh-in

    I did a weigh in today. It was a bit late but i forgot over the week. I took a few readings on different scales at my girlfriends house (including my own as well). The average was 85.4kg this week at 14.7-15% bf. I'm fairly sure that is a 1.5%-1.8% drop in body fat this week! Ive learnt my scales are very inacurate. I got a different reading each time i used them today while the three at my gf's house gave around the same reading. So i took the average of those.

    With my pulled back i had a rest day today and concerntrated on diet. I'll start out with cardio tomorrow with weights in the evening if i survive the morning. I'll be changing my routine again to work around by back. I'll be doing something similar to ben pakulski's mi40 program and working on time under tension with moderate weight.

    Thanks mate.

    Honestly, the alphamine really makes it easy to stick to the strict diet i have been. I would crash (energy wise) horribly if i wasn't on alphamine.
    The thing about diet, especially when cutting is that you just improve it every day. Some days will be bad so you just work on improving it from there. I hope your run with alphamine is fun.

    Looking at whats left ive only got another few days left in the tub.
    I skipped the morning cardio this morning as I only wold have got 3.5 hours of sleep if i had gone to the gym. I stayed in bed to get an extra 90 mins. I only did weights in the evening.

    Workout: chest shoulders biceps
    All movements are 4010 tempo focusing on time under tension. I also used intensifier techniques ot make the xersise harder. For example on bacnhpress i squeese my hands together when holding the bar to create more torque across my chest.

    Incline db press 4x8 26kg each db
    Bench press: 4x8 60kg
    db press fly: 4x8 18 kg each
    Db fly: 4x8 12 kg each

    seated (no back) barbell shoulder press: 3x8 40kg (i didn't want to risk hurting by back, so i just kept these light)

    Side laterals(8kg)>standing ez bar curls (25kg): 4x8
    Cable upright rows(25kg)>cable curls (17kg) 4x8
    sider curls (15kg) > front lateral raises (6kg each)

    Diet
    Meal 1
    200g mince
    170g baked beans (sauce washed off)
    2 handfuls of baby spinach
    2 scoops whey

    200g mince
    170g baked beans (sauce washed off)
    2 handfuls of baby spinach
    2 scoops whey in 200g egg white

    Meal 3
    1scoop bcaas (postworkout)
    2 chicken breasts
    1 light wrap (15g carbs)
    2 handfuls of spinach
    3 forkfulls of noodles
    1 scoops whey+ 1 scoop casine

    Notes
    Ive started to get cuts! i had bicep cuts (while pumped) striations on my shoulders and veins comming out of my shoulders and chest. Im starting to shape up. Cant wait to have this stuff un pumped.


    The plan for tomorrow is cardio and weights fasted in the morning.

    Workout:
    Back/tris

    It was quite a large workout today:- Perhaps too big for a fasted cutting workout but i enjoyed it none the less. I'm pretty flat now however.

    Im still sticking to a time under tension protocol this week to make sure i dont lift to heavy with my aggravated back. However it feels fairly good at this point so i may introduce some light lower back work in by ab routine tomorrow.


    Workout
    Wide grip pull up: 5 sets of 10 (this was the only thing i did not to time under tension on. Everything from now on used a 4 second negative and 1 second explosive upwards movement: adding up to a 40 second set with 40 seconds rest.

    Seated rows: 4 sets of 8 with quadruple dropset on last set
    Wide grip lat pulldown: 4 sets of 8 reps with quadruple dropset on last. I also used an intensifer on this exersise where i pulled my hands away from each other on the negative
    Hammer streangth row: 4 sets of 8: double dropset on last.
    Close grip lat pulldown: 4 sets of 8 with quadruple dropset on last. Used the same intensifier as wide grip pulldown
    Dumbell pullovers: 3 sets of 8

    Tri's
    Dips: 4 sets of 8
    Overhead Tri extensions>diamond pushups: 4 sets of 8>5/6 pushups
    Cable pushdowns: 3 sets of 8
    Cable kickbacks: 1 set of 15

    20 mins on treadmill with incline just below max. I'll head back tonight after i film a uni project to do more cardio.

    Workout 2: 10pm
    35 mins of treadmil.

    Diet:
    Ive only had 1 meal so far:
    1 banana
    2 scoops whey
    370g baked beans
    1 can of chicken

    Meal 2
    370g baked beans
    1 can of chicken
    150g lean ground beef.
    20g whey

    Meal 3
    2 muscle milk rtd's

    Notes
    Training fasted, i thought i looked flat today. Thats the nature of it i guess. I also believe i may have an ear infection. I'm rather tired and my ear wont stop throbbing. Hopefully it clears up but i may have to do get some antibiotics. On a positive note i think i can vaguely my serratus when i flex...or it could be ribs....im not to sure :P

    Today was leg day again using the a 4010 tempo with 40 seocnd breaks between sets. It left me feeling pretty rough.

    Workout
    legs

    Abs
    V ups:4 sets -failure
    decline kettle ball situps: 4 sets failure
    Hanging Leg raises (hang from chinup bar and bring legs to elbows: 4 sets-failure.

    I was too stuffed to do cardio. I tried but could barley move

    Diet:
    I was feeling pretty bad after this workout and had my first cheatmeal. It wasnt too bad. It was a lean chicken breast burger with a few fries. **** it tasted sooooo gooood. I washed it down with a protein shake

    I did a quick cardio session today to make up for yesterday. 45 mins on treadmill: 512 calories.

    I have one scoop left of alphamine and then this run is done! It lasted exactly 28 days. I thought id have some powder left at this point but i must of taken a few heaped scoops once or twice.

    I do plan to run a second tub of alphamine and add in some goodies of my own. Does anyone want me to keep logging?
    I may also have to take a deload week (i wont start alphamine tub 2 in this week) coz i'm feeling pretty stuffed.

    Also, I'll post progress pics soon. Do you want carb depleted pics or pics after a carb up?

    Final Pictures and review


    Alright so here is the final pictures and review. It doesn't look like too many people are so i probably wont bother logging the next tub. I was going to run it with Ostarine.



    I'll list the before pics again followed by the final pics. I guess this marks about the halfway mark of my cut. I think i was looking a little leaner last week. Ive been run down this week and eating slightly more. A lot of my fat loss came from my legs too which isnt noticeable in the pics. One of the after pics is slightly blury. I was having trouble and shaking a bit. In the end i decided not to really flex.

    Taste: 10/10. While taste doesn't neccessarily stop me from taking a product, it is definatly important. Alphamine does not fail here and sits at the top of my list of best tasting suppliments. 10/10

    Effectivenes 8.5/10 As a fat burner, i dont know how much fat it actually burnt, and how much of it came from diet. I lost about 3.5-4kg (7.7-8.8 pounds) while taking alphamine which is good for a month witha very strict diet. While I am not sure how much fat it actually burnt, alphamine helped me keep going and going and going and going.....and i never really felt tired while on it. This is where i found that alphamine shined. I did tend to crash though (big time) and it was essential i had a dose on hand for if i did. I also ended up with some achne on my back. This is why it lost some marks.

    Another thing, which does not gain or loose it any marks, it did elevate my heart rate by 20-30 bpm while doing low intensity cardio(walking incline treadmil).The boost ranged from 150bpm (without) to 175-180ish) This is somthing people should be aware of I believe. I would not recomend doing HIIT on this.

    Appetite suppression: 10/10. Second to none (in my experience). I dont know what else to say here
    Streangth: 10/10. I wasnt expecting to gain streangth while taking alphamine, but, i didnt loose any to a noticable extent.

    Mood: 9/10. Alphamine always put me in a good mood. Period. This was great, as when cutting im normally grumpy and moody and have a short temper. Not this time One day i even bought my girlfriend a designer handbag just because I was feeling so good. My wallet wasn't too pleased with this decision-haha. However, when i crashed it was another story. So i deducted a mark here.

    Thermo effect: 10/10. After cardio id leave covered head to toe in sweat every time. Id sweat sitting still at work.

    Overall: 9.5/10
    While i cant prove that alphamine helped me burn fat, i certainly know it made the job a lot easier under intense workouts and low calory diet. It was one of the more enjoyable suppliements ive taken to date and i will continue to purchase it for each cut from now on.

    I must thank PES for giving me this chance. Ive enjoyed every second.

    Thanks man, I'm pleased for a months work. I can see the difference between my chest in one of the shots. I swear last week my chest had a line of separation though, and i the abs were showing a bit more. I always find I rebound a bit after stopping something though. The same thin happened last year after i stopped erase. I'm going to try take this week to recharge and let the osta kick in, then get back to it with the alphamine next week. I'll run osta for 6 weeks, with a tub of alphamine followed by anabeta erase and DAA afterwards.


    I hope you enjoy your run. PM me if you want to chat about how things are going.
