    Mkretz's first cut with Formutech level !!


    Hey guys, first of all HUGE thanks to formutech nutrition for letting me log this great product. I have heard some great things about it and look forward to some good things.

    It has been a while since ive done a log and look forward to starting one up again. These next coupe weeks are going to be pretty busy between work and school but I will try to update a minimum of 4x per week with workouts and diet.

    Stats -
    5'9
    170-173


    My goal with this cut is really only like 5 lbs or so to see that I can cut if need be, i do not think I am too fat but want to see what I can do. I will try to get pics up soon. Gotta do some manscaping first lol

    I follow IF and some days have one small protein and fat meal post workout followed by the rest of my calories when I get home. Calories range from 3500-4500 depending on activity levels on workout days and 3000-3800 on rest ( cardio) days.

    I am a personal trainer and also have a job at Chipotle as well as going to school full time and I am also a Teaching Assisstant. My training job is now 6a.m every day so seep has been hard to come by as of late. IT has really taken a toll on my workouts. The same focus and intensity is just not there and its starting to bother me.....any hep in this area would be greatly appreciated.

    My workouts start with heavy sets of basic exercises and then move into more hypertrophy style training. I also try to incorporate speed exercises such as banded squats and bench presses.


    I love hearing ideas and different methods you guy use for training, nutrition, and advice in general, about everything but mostly in cutting.


    I am trying to carb cycle, with only carbs coming from dairy and veggies for 3 days then very high carb the fourth day, then 2 days with those low carbs and then one moderate day before the low days again.............do you think this sounds like a good approach?


    I plan to dose level II before cardio on workout days, well actually sip on it throughout. On off days I will take a serving in the morning and another before during cardio.

    I hate how carb cycling makes me feel but it definitely works to keep the BF down!

    That's a rough schedule you have these days bro, I though I had it bad! Lol! Level II is def going to help you out with that energy.

    Yeah man its been real rough.....I think the lack of sleep with the carb cycling has really taken its toll on my workouts....do u think maybe a moderate carb all the time except for off days would help?

    By moderate carbs you mean?

    Carbs are muscle preserving tools.

    1g per lb for protein. 20% of cals fat and the rest carbs. Carb cycle when you're sub 9%

    Include a refeed on your day you struggle the most. 200 to 500 calorie refeed. How much of a deficit are you in?

    that's a pretty light weight stack there, I'd give that to my 3 year old.

    lol da fuq??? You're going to be lean as all hell! I'm almost done with some T3 right now. Down 20lbs in 3 weeks. I need to taper down now I'm losing a little more strength than i'd like, but it sure got the job done and fast. love the stuff.

    Nothing beats my whole wheat pasta dish.

    1lb meat of choice,2 cups ritoni noodles, covered in Alfredo sauce seasoned with garlic. Side dish is ezekiel bread toasted with some garlic butter spread on that bitch.

    Meat is usually hamburger marinaded in Italian dressing *fat free* with cajun seasoning and a few dozen pinches of cayanne pepper.

    Close to 150 carbs in this bitch.

    Ok so i have two days or workouts to post....first off though, used level II whie doing cardio both days and it gave me steady conrolled energy. I sipped it throughout the session.

    Initial review!!!

    Mixability - 10/10- 2 - 3 shakes and its mixed.

    Taste - 10/10 - I love grape so this is an easy 10/10 for me, tastes like grape kool-aid, delicious, and no after taste or wierd textures in my mouth.

    Energy - 8/10- its not a hit you in the mouth energy like i would get from a strong preworkout but a definite clear straight energy, im not gonna lie, i kinda like the cracked out feeling that some preworkouts give me but this is not like that. No crash either which is always a plus.

    Thermogenesis 6/10 - to be honest i have yet to feel any sort of thermogenic effect from this. I will keep an eye on it however.

    Today 11/27 - shoulders/bis

    usually do cardio before i lift but today i didnt, i think it messed up my early workout, was not as strong, but my back is super sore too, really focusing on the contractions made a big difference.

    I experimented today and used level II as my preworkout with a sample packet of lecheek nutrition's pumpx3 (stim free preworkout) to see how it would treat me. Again not a huge burst of energy o focus like some preworkouts but a definite clear clean energy rush.

    Standing Push Press

    135x6x6

    Towel bench - pausing on the towel(block)

    175x6
    175x6
    185x6
    185x6
    195x5

    Speed banded bench
    105x3x10

    DB shoulder press - focusing on constant tension with slow negatives

    55x8
    55x8
    55x7
    55x8
    55x7+3 forced drop 35x as many drop 25 as many

    35x21x3 - 7 in the middle ROM 7 second hold, 7 full reps

    Heavy DB lateral raises

    30x8
    30x8
    30x8
    32.5x8
    32.5x8 drop 20x10 drop 15x10 drop 10x10

    15x12x3 super slow negatives

    Banded hammer strength press
    5 sets of 6

    Strict smith machine high pulls
    85x12x4 drop on last set

    cable lateral raise
    4 sets of 12

    banded hammer strength curls- 5 sets of 8

    alt. seated twist curl - 5 sets of 8

    supersetted with

    neutral grip shrug 4 sets 10-15

    hammer curls seated 5 sets of 8

    supersetted with barbell shrugs - 4 sets 12-15

    TRX curls!

    Initial review!!!

    Mixability - 10/10- 2 - 3 shakes and its mixed.

    Taste - 10/10 - I love grape so this is an easy 10/10 for me, tastes like grape kool-aid, delicious, and no after taste or wierd textures in my mouth.

    Energy - 8/10- its not a hit you in the mouth energy like i would get from a strong preworkout but a definite clear straight energy, im not gonna lie, i kinda like the cracked out feeling that some preworkouts give me but this is not like that. No crash either which is always a plus.

    Thermogenesis 6/10 - to be honest i have yet to feel any sort of thermogenic effect from this. I will keep an eye on it however.
    So far so good then! You may or may not specifically notice the thermogenisis, but pay attention to how much you're sweating, you should see an increase

    ok so yest chest workout was great!!

    first of though- level II - def. noticed increased sweating today during cardio. Again i sipped on it throughout. Taste again is great ! I look forward to drinking this stuff every day now! Havent checked my weight in a while, probably will monday during my lift so i will be ale to comment on that. IF time permits I will get some pics up tomorrow cuz i have finally shaven ! :-) Again, steady smooth energy throughout my cardio session and no crash....no complaints thus far, really looking forward to the body comp effects though!!!


    Workout!

    bench worked up to 245 for 1

    The main focus of the workout was to focus on constant tension with slow controlled negatives and not locking out the motion ever, regardless of rep ranges or weights being used...it was a definite success, some sick pumps going on. BTW I am currently using acute FX preworkout sipped throughout at 4 caps....loving the focus energy and pumps on it thus far.

    x8
    x6
