Fat destruction on PES Alphamine (sponsored log)
- 09-18-2012, 08:28 AM
Hello all! This is my log of PES Alphamine. Been about 2 years or more since I've logged on AM. But I'm glad to be back.
As some of you know and for you that don't, I am a performing artist. My day consists of jumping around and lifting women from 8:30 to 5 tues through Sat. So my gym time is limited to mon, tues, thurs, fri for about 1 hour. I am versed in most bodybuilding routines and for most of my experience i was always trying to gain muscle. But since reaching a high standard for strength in my profession, i have since changed my focus to cutting. My favorite lifting program is DC, but will be incorporating high volume and some crossfit based workouts to boost metabolism. My job is my cardio and I rarely get on the elliptical.
Had my first dose of Alphamine this morning 20min before breakfast and got a big jolt of focus and had decent appetite suppression. Like I didn't have to eat if I didn't want to. Good taste to the fruit punch flavor that I received. Mixed easily as well.
1 whole egg + 3 egg white
2 pieces of buttered homemade sourdough bread with strawberry jam

And for those that don't know, DC training is high intensity/low volume progressive rest-pause training. AKA Doggcrapp training. Great for bulking IMO. But, I won't be doing any DC sets during this log unless it's for my Bi's or Tri's. Sticking to high volume and Crossfit/metabolic training.

So I'm beat tired. Btw, I am dosing the Alphamine at 1 scoop in the a.m. and 1 scoop around 2pm. When i stop feeling as much of a kick from it, then i will up it to 2 scoops in the morning.
Pre & Post WO food: serving of beef jerky and cheez-its, one scoop WPC pre and one post.
So training tonight was a modified crossfit/metabolic style workout with a few extra sets for strength.
Warmup: 600m run, then various sets of high knees, lunge twists, worm crawls, and jumping jack.
10 min AMRAP: 4 pullups, 5 kettlebell swings(45lbs), 6 bent over underhand barbell rows(95lbs), 7 reps on the Swiss ball for abs. Made it 8.5 rounds.
Then added: Single arm DB rows 60lbs x 12
Seated supramaximal swinging DB curls 30lbs x 10
Standing cable curls straight bar attachment- 2 dropsets
3 sets Hanging straight leg raises(feet to bar) 7, 6, 5
Dinner: Tilapia filet with Egg on top and Siracha poured all over. One slice of frozen pizza with half serving of ranch dressing.
Maintenance Calories for me is 3,100 and my total for today was 2,330. Total macros was 155/200/95
Feel good and can't wait for day 2. Too early for me to make any statements about Alphamine as of yet.

Ive been finding i prefer to take one scoop morning, 2 scoops afternoon after a meal. If found the thermo kicks in harder that way. It might be worth experimenting.

Breakfast: 2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites, two slices buttered toast with strawberry jam.
So, I have noticed that 15min after dosing Alphamine that I must run to the sh1tter! It's crazy. It hits me and feels like it revs my metabolism right away.
Also, I have some decent DOMS in my legs today from dancing at work yesterday. I hope it goes away soon enough, since my next day off is Sunday.

Alright. Yesterday was hard because of the lack of carbs and calories from the day before but it was overall good even though I ate out at every meal. I made some decent choices and am happy about it.
Breakfast: McDonalds Egg McMuffin and Yogurt parfait 22/60/14 - 450
During warmup for work I finally noticed a larger more pronounced thermogenic effect. It was very nice. Plus the appetite suppression was more pronounced during the first half of the day. 10g BCAA after warmup.
Mid Morning Snack: 8oz raw milk with 1 scoop TEAMSKIP 33/12/8 - 252
Pre WO: 1.5 slices of bread and 1 tbsp of peanut butter + 10 BCAA 5/30/10 - 230
Workout: Circuit of 6 exercises. No more than 10 sec rest between exercises and 2 min rest between circuits. 3 rounds performed.
Exercise 1- incline barbell press 135lb
Exercise 2- flat DB press 40lb DBs
Exercise 3- Seated military press(behind head) 95lb
Exercise 4- Cable front raise with rope attachment 50lb
Exercise 5- CGBP 135lb
Exercise 6- Barbell skullcrushers to nose
Each exercise was done till failure and most sets were in the 8-12 rep range.
Lunch: 8oz sushi grade tuna over rice 28/37/1 - 269
Dinner: Didn't get to eat until 9 and was starving! CHEESEBURGER from smashburger! 41/45/58 - 838
Totals: 129/184/91 - 2071
Glad to see that even with a fattyass cheeseburger that i was still 1000 below maintenance.
It's a co-workers birthday today and we are going to a pizza place after dinner. I will have a late lifting session afterwards. But today should be an Above maintenance day anyway and i'm sure that will put me above.

Keep it up Doc. stay strong and burn those calories!
Circuits are tough. I introduced one to my routine tonight. I think i'll use this style for the rest of my log. It was hard as hell.
