    Good lord, burpees lol.

    It burns but not uncomfortable.

    I'm going to add in fasted cardio, it wakes me up and I don't feel worthless in the morning. Only going to I prove body comp, just a little curious about application and having it be dry. Just let it be and add some more after cardio (after my shower)

    Good to have ya!

    I also want to note, I cut out lactose this week. I was eating a lot of cheese, this may be adding to my waist not really budging in measurement.

    I don't have any shakes either (protein) or gluten. I feel great so far, hope I can keep my carb up also, lactose & gluten free!

    Apply the DermaTherm before bed --- as long as your room is cool it should not heat up and disrupt you. In fact, this is the way I personally use it and it just makes sense to me,

    While sleeping your heart rate is a oxidating/fat burning pace --- the gel will penetrate and liberate while sleeping and by the time you wake up for fasted cardio --- you are in an ideal situation to use fat as your primary energy substrate.

    Certainly makes sense


  9. Keep trucking man....

    I think by week 4 there should be a nice progression....also harder to see actual results while its in use due to Yohimbine HCLs temporary water retentive effects...

    Knowing you DONT have to be onstage in xx amount of time makes things more enjoyable

    That's very true. I'm hoping if I make it a routine, it will just become 2nd nature so during prep it'll be a breeze.

    Didn't do any cardio today though, it was leg day. About to wrap up my third week, maybe something going on here, we shall know on Tuesday!

    You ever try AnaBeta? I've used it now several times during carb up or when eating dirty and notice no bloat and more muscle fullness the next day

    Nope, but it's on my radar though. Feedback looks promising.

    You only use it during those times or you're running the product already and it works out that way?

    I'll cycle it for 8 weeks or more and also use it as needed on pig out sessions. I really do find it beneficial

    Usually they go like follows....

    Meal 1:
    1/2 cup buckwheat flour (made into pancakes)
    ~1/8 cup maple syrup
    1/2 cup steel cut oats
    1t brown sugar
    1tbs honey

    Meal 2:
    1 cup granola in soy/almond milk
    1tbs honey

    Meal 3&4
    10oz sweet potato
    1tbs honey

    Meal 5:
    2 cup brown rice pasta
    1 cup marinara sauce

    Meal 6: (cheat meal)
    1/2 pizza
    20oz Pepsi
    1/2 bag bread sticks

    Protein sources are either egg whites, whey or chicken that accompany each meal.

    This last weekend it was cake, cereal, donuts, pizza. Ugh, never again....

    How low calorie and restricted are you before this refeed/carbup?

    I may offer some advice if you answer these questions. Just trying to help.

    Won't be able to use for a few days (flying) kind of excited though bc I should lose some water holding from yohimbe.

    With weight holding strong (actually up along with measurements) I'm going to reduce cals some more. Strength has been good (going up) & I'm not hungry. Maybe I'll start hitting pics in the ole physique relax pose, or abs and thigh. Hard bc I don't have anyone to take pictures. Or could just keep doing close up relaxed photos...

    A lot of GI discomfort so far this week. Maybe time to invest in some aphadopilic or pro-biotic. Something's now right in there.

    I'm going to a bodybuilding show, putting my buddy through his first natural show! Excited for him & me, lol. Diet & everything will be on point the whole trip and it works that Saturday is my carb day, we can celebrate his victory!

  23. Your speed of progress would multiply IMO if you increased training from 3 days a week to 5

    Increased cardio from 4 days a week to 6-7.

    Ingested low fat high simple carbs on refeed windows opposed to fat+ sugar

    I like the certain aspects --- I have my own modified RP, triple drop set routine I created.

    I just like a little more volume and frequency...

    But I have tons of respect for DC so it no doubt works for lots of people

    Depends if I overdo it or not Also depends on the quality/makeup of the carbs/refeed.

    CHeat over the entire weekend is all negative unless you are depleted from being in low single digit bodyfat.Dont worry, I am perfecting Carb Matt Loading and it will be very conducive to lean mass gains-Matt

  28. DW ,,, you ever wear a waist trimmer while doing cardio / training? further put more heat into the mid-section
