  2. Sorry for the lack of updates. Starting a new job and dealing with some other stuff got in the way. Still lifting on schedule for SL5x5. Sitting around 167 lbs with calories around 2600-2800 per day. I'd say I'm doing a recomp now since I look bigger yet more defined.

  4. Another day, another workout. Killed 5x5 today. 190 squats, 115 bench, 115 rows. Moving up slowly but surely. This reduction in weight has allowed me to correct some form. Used to do parallel on squats but now I'm going ATG.

    Nice. The low weigh time is perfect to work on form and heal all those nagging injurys. On the squat dept. Be careful on ATG I've been going below paralell (checked depth yesterday and I was quite a bit lower) and its the reason my knee has been acting up. Did squats to paralell yday and upped weight as well as reps and no knee pain. So if ur not having knee problems keep going hard but if u start seeing some then keep this in mind.

    I'm really liking them so far. Little bit of knee soreness but I figure I am building muscle so it'll be better in the long run.

    Not too much soreness. Little bit in my left knee since I've injured it a few times. I'll definitely keep that in mind when I get the weight up.

    mmm maybe on the boldened..would seem to be a pretty clear case of cause & effect
    but - a lot of this depends on how you are built; I wouldn't automatically assume, because of this blip personal experience, the conclusion that atg is harder on the knees..not at all
    and understand, you working from a different angle is going to cause you a little distress if you've never done them like that before..

    form is pretty key for this movement tho

  10. Little fasted, flexed pic after boat practice this morning. Nothing too strenous

  19. Another day, another successful lift. Squat 200, bench 125, row 125. Quite a few carbs today. My dad and I biked to a pizza place about 15 minutes away and split a 16" pizza with ham, meatballs and jalapeños. So good. It wasn't too difficult of a ride but I was sweating pretty good from the PX Black. Legs were burning a bit from the squats before but it was a good burn. Stretching out the legs with some running or biking seems to help with DOMS for me

  21. Thanks for joining and thanks for the comments! PX Black has really been treating me well throughout this run. Great mood, killer results and no jitters. Got a little bit left on this run and I am extremely satisfied with how it has gone.

    Body soaked up the carbs. This happens a lot actually. When you sit in a calorie deficit for so long your body slows the metabolism down. When you eat this big meal it kickstarts it back up so to say. This is why refeeds on cuts are useful from time to time.

    Yah that happens later in the week we use stategic carb ups like that when we get really depleted.

  33. First off, thank you to all of the Finaflex team here on AM for picking me to log this stack. The Fat Attack stack from Finaflex was awesome for me on this run. I ended up losing about 15 lbs in this 8 week run and I feel like I kept all of my muscle, if not adding some too.
    Here is a breakdown of my run:

    4/16 - 180 lbs, 31.5” waist, 38” chest
    Started out with a low carb, keto based diet with refeeds every Friday/Saturday. Calories when starting were between 2000-2300, reducing calories when fat loss stalled (never did, stayed in this range for most of the run)





    4/18 - 2 days in



    4/22 - 31” waist

    4/24 - 177.8 lbs, down 2.2 lbs in 1 week

    4/26 - Post wo pic


    4/30 - 176.4 lbs, down another 1.4lbs, 3.6 lbs total



    5/4 - 175 lbs, down 1.4 lbs, 5 lbs total



    5/9 - 171.6 lbs, down 3.4 lbs, 8.4 lbs total

    5/16 - 171 lbs, down .6 lbs, 9 lbs total



    5/22 - 169.8 lbs, down 1.2 lbs, 10.2 lbs total
    Started to add in carbs since I was down the 10 lbs I wanted. Calories were around 2400-2800 with the added calories coming from carbs

    5/28 - 169 lbs, down .8 lbs, 11 lbs total




    6/6 - 167 lbs, down 2 lbs, 13 lbs total

    6/8 -


    6/13 - 165.3 lbs, down 1.7 lbs, 14.7 lbs total



    6/16 - END OF RUN! 165.1 lbs down .2 lbs, 14.9 lbs total, 30” waist

    Starting off on this run I weighed about 180 lbs and wanted to drop about 10 lbs and then do a recomp and try to lose more fat while staying relatively big. I accomplished the first goal of dropping 10 lbs in about a month which is awesome! I have been cutting since December and so I expected the fat loss to stall out and it never did with PX Black and ALC CLA. My diet could have been better as this was right around finals time and I was extremely short on workout time/food prep time. Still, these products helped me drop the first 10 like it was nothing.

    Also, I felt like the ALCAR in the ALC CLA really helped come finals time as I could retain information better and my focus was dead on. CLA is kind of a sleeper in this stack since its hard to tell that it is working. I would take 2 before bed and wake up feeling lean as hell. I had previously experienced this with SSv2 which is a GDA but I discontinued use for this run. ALC CLA would have me feeling lean and full when I took it prebed and I could tell a difference when I didn’t dose before bed. Great product that I will definitely incorporate in my future cuts.

    Once I lost the first 10, I started adding in carbs in order to get a recomp effect with these products. Sitting around 2400-2800 calories per day is where I usually maintain my weight but I kept dropping the pounds. My muscles stayed looking full with the Creatrona which was awesome. No digestive issues whatsoever with Creatrona. Creatine has given me digestive issues in the past but it was non existent on this run.

    I kept losing weight which I would say was mostly fat since I set a PR for deadlift with 345lbs x 2. People kept commenting on how I looked bigger and were shocked when I told them my weight. Great ego boosts which combined with the mood enhancement component of PX Black to make me feel like I was unstoppable. Such an awesome feeling. In the end I ended up losing about 15 lbs which makes me the leanest I have been in about 4 years. All of this was accomplished using 5/3/1 the first few weeks, switching to SL5x5 near the end. Very minimal cardio was done during this run. I think I could have dropped a few more lbs with more cardio. My cardio was HIIT on the stationary bike pretty much 1 time a week, a couple cool down LISS sessions on the bike and men’s league hockey/drop in twice a week.
