    Always bet on BLACK- the drive back to 4.5 with OxyECABLACK


    The contest prep is in full swing and the time to shed the extra fat gained during bulking is now! I'm appraoching the first show of my season a little differently....I'd like to be near stage ready with 4 weeks to go and simply coast in, fine-tuning little spots here and there. In order to do that, I'll need to be at 4.5%bf by March 1. The ultimate goal is to be on-stage at 3.5% at the end of March so I'd rather push it to the max early then have to stress it out towards the end.

    Last year, I didn't use any "fat-burners" during my contest prep, save for whatever stimulants are in my PWO. This year, I really want to see what the addition of a quality product like OxyECA Black can do! I'm anxious and excited to see what kind of progress I can make in the next 4 weeks.

    As far as other supplementation right now, other than staples, I am finishing up an 8 week run of PR-XT by adding in Nolvadren at the end. I have about 3 weeks to go on the 8 weeks and the obvious goal is keep all the muscle tissue possible while I drop my calories a bit to shed the fat.

    My diet for the next 4 weeks will be right around 2750 calories per day, broken down to 40-50% protein, 30-40% carbs, and 20% fat. From now until the contest I will be eating very clean...(one cheat meal per week!) I will be continuing to lift fairly heavy but dropping my sets per bodypart by about 20%. During the winter, I was working with alot of extra volume (for me) so this drop will put me back to a normal volume level. I hit chest and traps twice per week as they are my two weakest bodyparts. Everything else gets destroyed once a week.

    The cardio volume is what will be the biggest change for me over the next 4 weeks. I still hit my Bootcamp class 3x per week but on top of that, I will be adding at least 45 minutes of cardio per day. On non-bootcamp days, I will be doing 45-60 minutes of cardio after I lift in the morning and then another 30-45 minutes during the evening after work.

    Over the years, I have become extremely stimulant tolerant, probably more than a human being is supposed to be. Saying that, I don't expect to be greatly affected by the stimulants in the OxyECA Black but am definitely hoping for added support with appetite supression and all the other fat burning effects.

    Here are my starting stats and pics:

    I officially started on Saturday by taking 1 cap at around 4pm after the mail arrived. I didn't notice any huge surges or rushes but I did perceive a smooth, calm static level to my energy. I will often notice a lag during the early evening hours but I felt like I maintained a good, constant energy level until bedtime.

    On Sunday, I took 2 caps total for the day, 1at 1130 and 1 at 430 pm. I did it this way because my normal workout time is 530 am and I use my PWO, which includes caffeine, beforehand. Again, I felt like I was able to maintain a nice, solid level of energy throughout the day, no extreme surges but no real lags either. I did an evening biut of cardio at 830 pm but did not notice any extra sweating or increased body temp.

    For Monday, I decided to experiment a little and replaced my 530 am PWO with a cap of Oxy Black. I wanted to see how the cap wouod affect my workout and if I would be able to notice any increased body temp, sweating, etc. Well...I did not notice any of those indicators, however, I was completelh aware that I was fatiguing much sooner throughout the Bootcamp workout. My muscle pump and fullness was down but it was really more the muscle fatigue than anything else that stood out. I didn' necessarily get the feeling that my calorie expenditure was increased. Now...I certainly don't fault the Oxy Black for this. Without ingredients like Betaalanine, citruillline, creatine, etc, it's not fair to expect Oxy Black to act like a PWO. I did add a second cap that evening again at 430pm with the same smooth extension of my natural energy level until bed.

    This morning, I went back to simply using my PWO before lifting chest and will add 2 caps of Oxy Black at 1130 and 430.

    So far, I have noticed some good effects in terms of appetite suppression. It has definitely been difficult for me to get readjusted to 2750 cals a day instead of the bu ll ing level I have been at the past 3 months. The Oxy Black takes the edge off my desire to eat as often so I can stick to my 5-6 meals without the extreme urge to stick in a nukber 7 or 8.
    I am enjoying the smooth, consistent energy levels throughout the day. As I stated in my OP, I am very tolerant and conditioned to stims so the way Oxy Black is just keeping my energy level at that alert level throughout the afternoong and evening is perfect. No jitters, no crash at all.

    I have had no sleep problems or issues at all...even with taking my second cap at 430 pm.

    So far, so good. Next progress pics are tomorrow.

Size:  80.4 KB Through Day 5. Each day, I can see myself leaning out more and more. I can really judge by the separation in my abdominals which is starting to become a little sharper.

    **I'm really enjoying how the OXYEca Black is keeping my energy smooth and consistent throughout the day. Previously, I would have seriopus trouble not falling into a nap during the afternoon hours. Now, even when I am just sitting and not active in the afternoon, I don't have the slightest urge to nap. I've been consistent with taking a cap at 11:30am and a cap at 4:30pm. This routine keeps me level and alert all the way until bedtime which is usually 10:30pm. I really think by day 22, the OXYEca Black is going to have me right where I want to be!

    Great stuff so far!

    Sorry everyone...for the huge delay between posts. My family has had a rough week...complete with a couple ER visits! All is good now. Through it all, I haven't missed a workout but will admit, a few late night snacks have gotten the better of me. Too much stress will do that to you.

    My weight was at 194.5 last night. It usually floats between that and 195.5 from night to night. Here is the latest progress pic:
    Name:  wed.jpg
Views: 69
Size:  87.6 KB Things are coming along nicely. I want to make sure that I'm not pushing the calories too low or the cardio too high and risk losing any muscle tissue. Even with a shaky last couple of days, I am slowly leaning back out...day by day. I've got about 2 weeks left and it's nothing but full speed ahead from this point on!!

    I've got 1 week left on the OXYEca Black and everything is still smooth! My weight tonight was 194.5...staying consistent but I definitely see more leaness as each day passes. Here are the pics from this morning:Name:  20130129_052436.jpg

    Muscles were a little flat from the decreased carbs of yesterday but the cuts are starting to round into form. I noticed a little extra definition in my mid-back area.
    The energy from the OXYEca Black continues to get me through the day at a nice, elevated level...consistent and without any drop-offs during the afternoon and evening. I've had no problems sleeping at all...even with the last dose coming between 4-4:30pm. All is good.
