Fat destruction on PES Alphamine (sponsored log)
- 09-24-2012, 10:06 PM
So yesterday was a recovering day with a trip to Sam's club and watching football. Picked up more fish oil and Glucosamine/MSM combo. Diet was a little funny, but was way under maintenance. Had pizza for lunch and was a small dinner.
So I forgot my morning dose before breakfast. I took it immediately afterwards. Didn't have the same effect or feeling as usual. It didn't hit me hard like usual. That won't be happening again. I like the kick on the ass personally.

Yesterday was a very productive day of destroying fat.
Breakfast was amazing. Check out what my girlfriend made me for bfast.
Yeah that's a 2 whole egg + 2 egg whites omelet with avocado, cheddar, green onions, sautéed spinach, fresh tomatoes on top. Pretty damn good.
Ok so totals..
Workouts: did a slight weight program for 30min
Incline bench press: 135 x 12, 12
Flat bench: 135 x 18
Seated military: 95 x 15, 13
Upright rows: dropset 65x12 - 45x8
Tricep press down(v bar attachment): large dropset
Tricep pull down( single arm attachment): dropset
About 3 hours later I took a Bikram yoga class. If anyone doesn't know what that is, I suggest you look it up. It's very specific class. 90min of sweating like a pig. I'm sure I lost at least 5 pounds of water.
I took my second dose of alphamine before Bikram and my focus in class was absolutely great, but I definitely felt more overheated than I normally do in there. In a 105 degree room the thermogenic effects were very pronounced. I don't usually think "Omg can you please turn on the fan?" during class.
I am very excited to find out how much BF I've dropped so far. I'll weigh in on thurs and check my BF.

So I am officially dosing 1.5 scoops in the morning and 1 scoop in the afternoon. Still loving alphamine.
No workout since I worked 13 hours yesterday. Today and tomorrow should be the same. I need to de-load anyways. Today should be a calorie surplus since I've had 3 below.
Also, DOMS ARE HORRENDOUS from Bikram on Monday. I haven't been this sore in months. It doesn't help that I'm below my normal calorie intake.

That does look delicious for sure! Good updates bro.

Felt pretty good besides the DOMS yesterday. I tried to eat maintenance, but the appetite suppression from Alphamine made it difficult.
Totals: Macros- 170/230/90
Pullups(various grips) 12,12,10,10
Abs: 5 sets
Hammer strength rows: 90lbs. 12, 12. Very slow negatives.
Preacher curls: 45lbs. 9, 8
Concentration curls: 30lbs x 11
Rotator cuff exercises: 5lbs high reps
Reverse flys: 10lbs. 12, 12
Still loving Alphamine and noticing my abs a little more each day

Thursday was a very busy day for me. Was running on 5 hours of sleep and Alphamine made a 13 hour day possible. Or at least felt like it did.
Totals- Macros: 120/170/80
Didn't actually mean to eat that low, but the workday didn't allow for much time to eat. Alphamine helped get me through it. Kept me focused on work and suppressed my appetite enough.

It was a really good day..
It was date night and we had fantastic food. Ice cream for dessert. Hence the many fat macros.
Workout: 2 sets on most exercises, higher rep, full upper body.
Pullups and hammer strength rows- 12,12 and 12,12
Incline bench: 135 x 19, second set performed with 3 second negatives for 10 reps.
Flat DB press 40lbs x 12
Close incline DB (DB's pressed together) 35 x 15
Push ups( 25lb weight on back and feet on bench) 20 reps then dropped plate off my back and hit 10 more at BW
Seated military: 95x 12,12
Upright rows: 65x 15
Cable curls/rope curls & tricep press downs/rope press downs.
Felt a huge pump, which was very nice since I haven't had many carbs as of late. Yesterday was the highest I've gone since starting alphamine.
I may bump up the alphamine to 1.5 morning and 1.5 afternoon starting next Tuesday

Yeah I sure did enjoy it and you're right that they don't last long enough.Originally Posted by LiveToLift

Saturday I was very tired and tried to eat a little more, plus I had a craving for a five guys cheeseburger. But overall it was a good day.
Fat was high again for second day in a row but don't feel like I'm gaining any fat. Also, I haven't reach maintenance calories in almost 3 weeks even when I try. The appetite suppression from Alphamine is quite good IMO but I need to hit maintenance at least once this week. So tomorrow I will probably have a calzone or pizza for lunch, maybe chinese buffet. I feel like my body is starting to hate me and I need to reload my glycogen stores.
Woke up on 4 hours of sleep in order to make a 9:30 Bikram class after having ppl over Saturday night. Alphamine definitely helped in waking up. During class the thermogenic effects were very noticeable. It was almost too much. My sweat didn't feel like it was cooling me off and I didn't stop sweating for 30 mins after class even though I took a cold shower...
Better on the fat aspect, but still need to carb load or the week. Gonna be a crazy Tuesday. Today I will be moderate on everything because it's my day off and might only lift a little this afternoon.

Also, forgot to mention a did a weigh in on Friday...
So lost 1% and 3 pounds since starting. But I don't know how accurate the BF machine is. I wanna get down to at least 11 before this tub runs out..

Good job on the hard work! But don't forget to get up to maintenance!! Enjoy your calzone/Chinese buffet tomorrow... I would personally vote Chinese.

Thanks. I will eat big tomorrow for sure. But I may do something unexpected for lunch instead of Chinese or calzone..Originally Posted by mj007

Lowest I've went on carbs during this log. Wasn't my favorite day but today should be awesome with the extra carbs.
Btw, strength has been pretty consistent even though I've dropped weight. I don't feel much if any weaker. Just feel tired sometimes from the lack of calories.
Any suggestions/critiques welcome to help speed my process up.

It's worth going just to go to Kewpee. It's like going back to 1950 and having a cheeseburger. They even offer green olives as a toppingOriginally Posted by LiveToLift

First time I've pretty much reached maintenance. It felt pretty good and today my muscles feel full.
Tri-set: BW pull ups, bent over barbell rows 95lbs, and hammer strength pull downs 90lbs. 3 sets of 12,8,10.
Cable curls: dropset
Seated DB Curls with twist: 25 x 13, 25 x 12
Preacher barbell curls: dropset 55lbs to 45lbs
Felt good to boost the metabolism a bit yesterday. Won't eat a ton of carbs until Sunday..

Felt like yesterday was a productive day even though I didn't do a weight session. Worked almost 12 hours and wasn't too beat up by the end.
Always wish I could get more sleep than I do, but alphamine is there when I wake up to make me forget that I didn't sleep much I will be low carbing(low for me) today.
Also thinking about going to 2 scoops in the morning...

I don't go as low carb as I wanted to but I still felt drained at the end of the day..
Was a good day overall. Had focus, energy, and drive. Workout felt a little easier than planned..
Crossfit style, 6 rounds of: 4 pull-ups, 4 hang snatches, 6 handstand push-ups. 2 min rest between rounds.
Had a good sweat and felt strong. I can definitely see more striations and vascularity through my midsection. Been a long time since I could see my veins from my lats to my abs...

Weighed in today at 156. 1 pound less than last week. Also dropped .5% in BF. looks like alphamine is keeping me on the right track....
