What's up fellas, sorry I'm late to the party. It's been pretty crazy up here on Long Island with the two storms, losing power and the gas lines. Been to the gym just twice over the past two weeks and it's been tough to keep my diet on point when the refrigerator keeps losing power. But things are getting back to normal and I'm getting back on track.
First, I'd like to thank Jacob, Casey and the rest of the USPlabs team for giving me the opportunity to test their Patented Anabolic. I'm a big fan and I truly respect USP. Not every product of theirs worked for me, but many have and have become staples in my supplement regimen.
I will be very subjective and fair in my review and logging of the Patented Anabolic.
My nutrition plan is never set in stone. I find my best results come when carb cycling. Although the passed two weeks have been filled with eating out and not being strict, starting today I am back on point.
-6 to 7 meals a day
-1 to 1.5g protein per pound
-carbs will fluctuate between 250g-500g
-calories will increase every 1 to 2 weeks, as I am putting on lean mass for the winter
-fats remain pretty constant
I eat very clean. With 1 or 2 cheat meals usually on the weekends when I go out to dinner.
Foods I eat consist of:
-Lean Turkey Meat
-Top Round Sirloin
-Grilled Chicken Beast
-Whey/Egg Protein Powder
-Rice (white-extra long grain)
I will be assessing my macronutrient breakdown a bit later today and will post it as it changes weekly.
-Multi Vitamin / Mineral
-Vitamins B/C/D (Extra)
-NOW Ultra Omega 3
-USPlabs Anabolic Pump (Usually a staple, but only using it before cheat meals during PA log)
-USPlabs Super Cissus
-USPlabs Jack3d Micro
-Healthy N Fit Egg Protein
-ON Pro Complex
-Alpha Lipoic Acid
I used to do a lot of powerlifting, which has left me with a few injuries including a hernia, herniated disc in lower back, herniated disc in upper back/neck. Therefore I usually do a bodybuilding type training routine, with rep ranges of 8-15. This will vary depending on how I feel.
USPlabs Super Cissus has really helped me lately with pain and inflammation so I'm feeling pretty good. So I may include a few more compound movements with heavier weight into my workouts depending on how I feel. But overall, my training is geared more toward physique goals than strength.
I will be lifting around 4-5 times a week. It is a 6 day split, so I am actually training each muscle slightly more than once per week. With cardio 4-6 times a week, usually after my lifts or before breakfast.
Day 1: Shoulders
Day 2: Arms
Day 3: Off
Day 4: Chest
Day 5: Back
Day 6: Off
I am planning to put on some lean muscle mass during this log. I would like to average about 4-5 pounds per month over the next 4-5 months. Obviously my diet and training are geared toward that goal. So I am eager to see what kind of boost this Patented Anabolic can give me. I definitely hope so see some physique changes.
I will post starting pics in the next couple of days. I want to lose some of the bloat first that I've gained over the passed 2 weeks, and refill muscle glycogen to where I normally am.
