500-XT Day 0
It's game time people!! Big thank you to the fine people over @ Finaflex for giving me the opportunity to run this product. It looks like a solid profile that'll help me achieve my goals of leaning out some.
A little background on me: I'm 41 years old, 5'7" 175 w/ some horrible love handles. Too much King Cake over the Mardi Gras season this year... I'm a happy husband/father of 2 little kids that keep us on the go. I work a rotating schedule, alternating days & nights, so my log will be coming at various hours of the day/night. I've been working out for the better part of 20+ years. Like most on here, I go through spurts where I really try to buckle down & get serious. This is one of those times. Time to get serious & see if I can find these freaking abs!!
So, to start my day, I reluctantly crawled out of bed this morning about 3:15am... I ended up going to bed too late last night, so it was a struggle. The first thing I did was head to the kitchen & dose my first pill. I'd say by around 3:30, I was already feeling awake & alert. By 3:45, when I walked outside, I was feeling great!! I've been having a good feeling about this for the last week or so, & the feeling this pill gave me this morning only helped increase that optimism.
My workout this morning consisted of sprints. I walked out the distance between 3 street lights, & it was about 120 yards. I did a little jog, trying to warm up my legs a little & jumped right into it. The first sprint, I thought, I'll sprint down, turn around real quick, & sprint back.. Yeah, that won't be happening again anytime soon.. Talk about gasping for air! So, I ended up doing around 9-10 of these sprints, jogging back to my starting point & taking about a 1 minute rest. As beat down as I was feeling, I feel I could've done a few more, but the clock was ticking & I needed time to cool off, shower, & get to work.
I'm now pushing close to 4 hours since the initial pill & I'm still feeling pretty good. Not amped up, but not drowsy either. I'm definitely sore, but that's a good thing! I just popped 2 Aleve to help me get through the day.
I'm off from work tomorrow, so I'll get up & go to the gym tomorrow, hitting chest & back.
Here's the initial pics for my starting point: Feel free to critique and comment as you like.
