Ace gets pumped with AP
- 06-22-2013, 07:10 PM
Hey guys, ace here.
Recently got a bottle of AP with my tub of Oe protein. (which is the best tasting protein I've ever had, btw)
Didn't take it the first few days, being that they've been low carb days. Figure I'll wait to start it on my high carb day Monday.
For now, any dosing suggestions??
Ie should I eat more carbs than usual while dosing, any preferred sources to consume after AP?
(ex waxy maize vs basmati rice vs potato)
Currently I am doing a prrs training program., will use this for anther month or two then i'm switching back to mountain dog.
Diet is very clean. No fruit no gluten no sugar no dairy etc
I cycle carbs. I do three high days a week, three low days, one moderate day.
Macros are as follows:
Fat 110- 150
Carbs 30- 400
Carbs go up, fats and pro go down, vice Versa.
My high days are between 250-400 carbs. Mostly Periworkout.
medium day 100-200
Low days 30-50
Supplementation is just the essentials right now
Oe Protein, mbcaas, enhanced, multi
Anyway my goal is a slow recomp. I'm really happy with my cutting results I've dropped from 205- 182~
And am quite leaner.
But I do not feel like getting much leaner (not doing a show just throwing a mini cut into my bulk), below 180 I feel is too small.

Todays macros (roughly)
Meal 1 scrambled 2 Eggs/ 1Cwhites + 1 sweet potato
Meal 2 10ozChicken + 2-3C greens + 1/4 C nuts
Meal 3 two scoops Oe protein plus nuts
Meal 4 same as meal two
Meal 5 12oz 85% lean GD beef 4 tbsp natty peanut butter
Right now greens are broccoli, asparagus, and green /wax beans
During the week I have these along with spinach, mushrooms, onion, kale, lettuce, etc
I don't count carbs from greens..
Macros and amounts are rough estimates.. I just eyeball everything.

I'm in for this ace!
Nice start man. AP activates the glucose transport protein GLUT4 in muscle cells (independent of exercise or insulin), which allows for the entry of glucose into those cells. Since both complex carbs and simple sugars end up as glucose, it can be used with most carb sources. I prefer using it before meals containing complex carbs more often than not.
The recommended dosing is 1 cap twice daily, about 15-20 minutes before a minimum of 30g carbs. Each dose should be kept ~4 hours apart.
Considering that your carb intake is mainly peri-workout, I'd recommend using AP before your pre-workout meal and the next carb containing meal after training. That's the approach that I've been using, while consuming almost all of my carbs peri-workout.

In on this. To answer your question about preferred carb sources, I would go for starches, so any of those three will work. Generally we recommend slower digesting carb sources with AP, because the immediate effects persist for quite a while. any of those three sources along with protein, fat, vegetables or whatever else you eat in a meal should be fine.

Scrambled eggs + sweet potatoe sounds like a werid combo. Do they actually taste good together? Or is it just what you had available to eat?

No sweetening on the sweet.
I've eaten it separate as well as mixed together in a bowl..
Next time I mix I might add almond milk.

Felt ****ty today from switching my sleep schedule 180° due to work, so went lighter
As you know I am currently doing prrs, planned for another three Weeks then deloading and doing a mountain dog program.
Shock week, legs
Standing freemotion single leg curls Ss single leg bw sldl
60x4x15 // 4x20
Front squat Ss standing freemotion leg extension
185x4x15 // 40x4x15

Three rounds, no weight
no cardio besides my fifteen minute bike ride with my dog, alternating between riding on concrete, sprinting on concrete with the brakes on, and sprinting on the grass
Mini hiit session.
For those who didn't know,,I tore my hamstring a month or so ago so I've been training my legs much lighter than I'd like to be.
