    Heres the deal guys. None of this log is sponsored and I'm going to be 100% honest in it.

    Here's the stack:

    Alphamine:
    1 Scoop on early morning fasted cardio days (these days are military PT days)
    Mondays- 0530 Pre fasted cardio
    Fridays- 0530 Pre fasted cardio
    1 scoop ~-530, 1 scoop ~1230 with lunch 1 scoop PWO depending on time... if it's late at night I will take 2 at lunch
    T/W/Tr
    ~ 1Scoop 0900 with breakfast/1/2 Scoop 1300 lunch or (1 PWO)
    Sat/Sun
    1 at breakfast 2 at lunch

    Slinsane
    1 cap at breakfast/1 cap PWO (with carbs, obv)

    CEE
    2.5g in Alphamine Breakfast or PWO

    I'm keeping a fairly low carb diet. For this week these are the meals I prepped.

    Breakfast
    3-5 sausage links (or 5oz sausage)
    3 hardboiled eggs
    1C oatmeal (with SlinSane)
    6-8oz milk.

    Lunch
    High protien/Low carbs
    Normally either homemade chilli with extra meat, 5-8oz chicken/cottage cheese, chicken salad with light vinagarette dressing... You get the picture...

    PWO
    5-8oz chicken/1cup homemade mashed potatoes or 5oz pork/mashed potatoes (SlinSane)

    Intraworkout
    RecoverPro BCAAs

    Post Workout
    Protein shake (as soon as it comes in the mail)

    Dinner
    Whatever my asian wife makes (minus all the rice)
    I am going to limit my carbs after 5pm since I hit the sack around 10pm every night.

    My schedule is hectic due to school, military and family but I'm going to stick to this plan as much as possible. Next week during the holidays we will be in Ohio for three days so I may miss a few workouts depending on if I can find a gym.

    Goals for this month are:
    1% fat reduction with no strength loss
    More defined abs and better cuts in quads
    Better prepare my body for the lean bulk I'm about to complete with SD/5-Alpha after I get in recomp shape.
    Take 45+ seconds off my 1.5mile time by December 3... (11:04 to 10:15)

    Cardio:
    On M/F I do fasted cardio for military PT. I will post the regimen every week when they give it to us. I normally go M/F but sometimes it's M/Tr or T/F... Either way, it's two days a week.
    Also, I'm training for a special ops position in the USAF so I'm doing my own cardio sessions and rucking for 1 hour every week. The rucks consist of 15min/Mile (or less time) with 30-45lbs of weight. We do 20 push ups every 15 mins and hydrate...then off we go. This will keep up until the weather gets unbareable...then I will ruck inside with full gear on at the track in the campus gym. I will do a faster paced ruck for a lot shorter time... ~30 mins or so.
    PWO I will run at least a mile and time permitting a .5-1 mile cool down.

    Weights:
    Once I figure out exactly how I'm going to run my weights I'll let you guys know. It's probably going to be something like this:

    M/W/F- upper body 3-6 sets each body part focused around cleans/bench/deads with other exercizes incorporated
    M/F- Lower Body also... Squats/Leg Ext/HamCurls/Leg Press

    High intensity/high rep ranges/with max weight incorporated every week for at least one workout each day. (Ex: Monday max bench, Wed max dead, etc).

    I'm going to thrash my body into oblivion and hope the BCAAs help .

    Follow along fuggers to my quest for greatness.

    Can someone point me to a good discussion on this forum about GDA's. I have SlinSane V2 with me, but I am not sure I understand what a GDA does for me to start using it

    Some good info in this thread: Slin-Sane v2

    That page is a good start as Coop and Smitty break down some of the real actions and reasons for GDA vs the common misconceptions.

    Nice! Think im gonna step up my cut a bit too, with a minor break in-between for Thanksgiving.
    IF is not a bad choice; easier to keep up on your diet with life sometimes…

    Questions: Do you have an overall caloric goal in mind, and something to track easily (i.e. fitnesspal, book, etc)?
    What is your current weight by the way, and an estimated BF? (Atleast two-methods)
    I see you have some veg in there, anymore you can add will help a lot (celery and other low cal snacks) reduced fruit looks acceptable (high cal).
    Keep in mind high volume/sets-intensity-reps will demand a lot of glycogen; you may have to carb cycle around that if low carbs start to hurt you.

    Also it is suggested to take BCAA's every few hours during your fast (~10g) prior to your first meal of the day. (Some people add in fish-oil, EFAs)
    This helps with your cardio/workouts/catabolism and such. I'll pull you up some references when I get time if you want.

    Good luck! Your ripped already, Lol.
    keep us updated with anything else interesting

    This is why I wish we still lived close... No homo.

    I know I need to start tracking my meals... I will do that on MyPlate like I used to. I can start doing that tomorrow.

    I was thinking about incorporating fish oils and CLA but I'm unsure of how and when would be most effective.

    Ill see if I can find someone with calipers to measure my BF. It's higher now than it was Pre-havoc that's for sure... I feel a lot looser in the chest and ab areas but my quads and calves are leaner now from the runner. I know targeted fat loss is unlikely, but I really think my legs are more cut because of the increased cardio and extra amount of lunges, squats.

    Keeping carbs to a minimum except around workouts is a difficult process. Do you agree that limiting carbs after 5pm is a good idea or no lumipz? If so, should I incorporate BCAAs and protein shake before bed? ON gold std has a very small amount of carbs... Almost unnoticeable.

    Cutting is so much harder. I'm such a rookie.

    Generally the most critical timing for BCAA is when you are fasted/postworkout/catabolic; for the reasons that you may have a lack of protein synthesis at these times or it is needed to be increase at these times. If you get enough BCAA throughout the day it shouldn't been needed at night but you can anyways.

    Fish Oil, CLAs, EFAs are in general nutrition practice recommended to take with food, but its not absolutely necessary (nothing is), you can dose whenever. And fat loss locations.. well that can be genetic, your born with certain fat cells that do certain things, at certain times, certain locations/situations (i.e. you get it).

    This is kind of where personal experience comes into play; you have to see what works for you and try it. Also what feels most comfortable and convenient to you

    No gym today... Woke up and nothing solid came from today. Literally.

    Anyone have any gastro problems with Alphamine or SlinSane? I'm hoping it was just a bug.

    Recovery still good.

    I consumed no more than 30-40 carbs all day. Sucked balls.

    In! I'm pretty interested in both Alpha and Slin so glad to see you running them. Though I'm thinking of using Slin in a bulk with high carbs and taking 3 throughout the day. I think I get why you're using it in a cut though, using all the carbs you take in efficiently. Excited to see your results, kill it!

    Bulk, bulk. Bulk. You are gonna look like a power lifter but the end of your bulks. Don't even call it a cycle anymore... Just bulk life lol.

    I'm gonna go full Leto after the holidays...Do like Luis did and be miserable for 5 days on end and then carb up. Gonna be hard but ill do that for three to four weeks and get abs back. Throw more cardio into the mix and get cut da fck up. Then explode into SD/Alpha-5 or SD/AlphaBulk and put another 10 lbs of muscle on. Introduce carbs back into my life with SD. Gonna buy all my supports on Black Friday!

Throw more cardio into the mix and get cut da fck up. Then explode into SD/Alpha-5 or SD/AlphaBulk and put another 10 lbs of muscle on. Introduce carbs back into my life with SD. Gonna buy all my supports on Black Friday!
    Yeah I have long bulking cycles. I cut down to 165 right before I did my SD run though, hated every minute of it lol was starving.

    Yeah I was doing low carbs while cutting, usually had like 20g or less ed. Made me feel nauceous sometimes, was terrible. I think when I'm cutting next time I'm just going to cut calories down and do IF.

    As long as you are hitting your target goals for caloric intake over the day/week you should be good. The other issues may become more important at lower levels of body fat.

    Formulate a plan that makes it easiest for you to stick to. The biggest problem I tend to see is people hate their strategy and can't stick to it. While cutting fat won't necessarily be the greatest experience it doesn't have to be the biggest pain if you aren't cutting to severe levels, etc.

    If you haven't cut too hard before take this as a learning experience as you may not find what works best for you right away.

    In my mind IF seems better since you don't have to limit what kinds of food you eat as much. Just my 2 cents.

    Limiting foods doesn't really bother me.... Just gotta figure out how to get the energy to workout effectively.... Low carbs killed my energy and I wasn't even completely depleted

    I am going to start tracking calories right after thanksgiving. Prob gonna buy another tub and run for six weeks to make up for the holiday week. I really want this so I'm going to do it right.

    I found if I make my meals on Monday and put them in the fridge then I'm more likely to eat healthy and not snack on ****.

    I have read a lot of logs where guys go into cal/carb deficits prior to running a PH then go into a PH and up everything and they respond well. Is this bro science of is there legitimacy behind doing this?

    Never used any hormones so I can't say with utmost certainty...but I would say maybe due to a "rebound' effect from dieting. In general they are probably depleting water and glycogen stores prior to the hormone use and upping the CHO and cals even without a PH would lead into a weight gain. Couple that with hormones than may increase glycogen storage and I bet the scale could jump high pretty quick.

    But idk, I say this assuming you mean responding well = good gains. Just thinking out loud.

    Agreed bolt. Upping calories and especially CHO when starting a PH would definetely feel like you are getting quick gains. When I do that no matter what supp I take my strength goes up and muscles feel full

    Sweet. So it's something naturally done just heightened by PH bc of its obv effects anyways. Hmm maybe ill hold off SD and stay natural even longer. Gotta get bloods anyways.

    Wow...

    Today's workout was insane. I did a push/press SealFit workout with my buddy. I haven't done a workout that crazy in my life.

    I took two scoops of Alphamine yesterday on empty stomach. It messed me up! I was literally in the bathroom four times within an hour. Has anyone had any problems like that when taking Alphamine? Just wondering if it was me or the product? Originally I thought it was the slin-sane but I hadn't taken any yesterday when this happened.

    Today I did 1 scoop three times throughout the day. It was fine, no problems with the gut and I had sustained energy throughout the day.

    I'm trying to track my carbs throughout the day and today I realized I'm taking in a lot more than I originally thought. I didn't realize milk had so many carbs. Also, the same thing with vegetables. I hit nearly 30 carbs today from vegetables. Is this something I need to worry about? How should I combat that?

    I'm really trying to learn how to cut with this run. I've never cut effectively before and I think I know why. I am so used to bulking, I have never tried to cut carbs or fast before. Today I didn't eat until 12PM and when I did, I had 2cups of steamed corn and three seasoned BBQ riblets.

    Also, I need advice on how to cut some fat out of my breakfast. For breakfast, I have nearly cut carbs completely out of the equation but I've noticed that I eat a lot more fat at this time than expected. I normally eat 4-6 boiled eggs (minus 3-4 yokes), 3-5 ounces of sausage and a glass of milk. If I'm planning to run that day, I will sometimes eat a cup of oatmeal, but lately I've not done that because of the carbs.

    If anyone has any recipes or suggestions. I need them.

    If ur going full keto why would u want to cut the fat out? Ur keeping the carbs below 50g, 40-20g is a good range
