    Hey guys, what's up?

    First off, I wanna thank Hvactech and LG Sciences for picking me to do this log, I'm gonna give it all I got!

    My goal for the six week run is a recomp. I'll be doing early morning cardio w bcaas to get some extra cardio in for fat burning. My split is gonna be everything worked 2x a week, alternating heavy and light sessions, the only exemption is legs, my upper thighs are 27" already, but my calves are way behind at 16.5" so I need to bring that up. The second leg day will be calves only. I wonder if I can add an inch over the course of this run?

    I need to get my starting strength numbers and starting measurements/pics done this week. But I'm pretty tied up w work at the moment, so they'll be up by this weekend for sure.

    As far as diet, I'm eating about 2,300kcal for these first two weeks, see how my body reacts to the extra wrk I wanna put in, then maybe drop 200cal after that, depending on the end of week progress.

    I'm already on day 2 of dosing, no gym tonight, and there's possibility of no gym tomorrow night either, but I won't know for sure till tomorrow. Cardio sessions are definitely in order though.

  2. Got 35min cardio in before work this morning. I wanna hit the gym for a chest/back session...

  3. Hit chest and back last night!! Feelin good today!

  12. Forgive me brothers, for I have sinned. I skipped leg day Not that my thighs need to get bigger, but still I need to develop my calves more. While I'm confessing my sins, I skipped cardio this morning too because I didn't set my alarm. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. I'll have that corrected tonight

    Chest and back tonight. I need to improve on my wide grip chins...

    I'll catch y'all later...

    I felt pretty damn focused tonight, but hella hungry! I'm surprised I was able to move normal weight on a caloric deficit! I think the stuff is kicking in. We'll find out as time goes on. Tomorrow is shoulders and arms. Wednesday is leg day. I plan on making up lost time by doing higher volume. One of the things I like to do on high volume leg day is 5 sets of 20 reps @ 225lbs on smith machine squat. Some ppl hate on the smith, but I like to use it for high rep days.

    I needa eat, shower, dose the pbold and hit the hay! :P

  15. Yah you will be even stronger than normal once it fully kicks in. It's nice not to lose power while dieting down.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  16. Omg, I've been effin tired since Monday! Caloric deficit, I hate you >:O But it needs to be done...

    I carbed up last night cuz tonight I train legs!! I'm happy. Now this'll be the test: can I still move my same weight/volume eating +/- 2200kcal/day while using this product...

    Oh yea, this is gonna be fun!!

  17. Tonight's report:

    I call it a day here. Not gonna lie, I normally do way more, but I'm hella hungry!! I usually do hams first on leg day, then squat, but I wanted to really gauge the product by squatting fresh. For not having that much to eat today, my strength was still there. I'll see about getting in my "normal" leg routine Saturday

    Btw, I skipped cardio...

    I'm a fat f***ing loser!!

  18. Were you feeling stronger from you carb up though.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  19. Hmm, that's hard to tell. I typically keep carbs lower no matter what, then I carb up the night before leg day, and usually have a cheat meal Saturday night, and Sundays until 5pm, then back to regular diet. I keep the cheat meals within the calorie count though. If I eat a burger and fries, and together they're 1,200 calories, well I have to tighten up the belt the next meal. Either way, I don't think I feel stronger, per se after carbing up, but I don't fatigue as fast. Also, I'm a lover if high volume workouts, and what I did yesterday wasn't really high volume. This is my typical leg day:

    Straight leg deadlifts
    As many sets as it takes to feel the burn, then 2 or 3 sets heavy

    Lying leg curls
    4 sets if 15-20

    Seated leg curls
    4 sets of 15-20

    Rest 3-5 min

    This varies from week to week, sometimes I do 5-6 working sets + 2 sets heavy to the box or bench, or I'll do 5 sets of 20 @ 225lbs. Either way, I superset w sissy squats (I shoot for 10 each set)

    Leg press + lunges
    4-5 sets of 15-20 usually w 4 plates each side. Every now and again I'll throw on 5-6 plates, but I go deep and do high reps. I usually change foot position too.

    Leg extensions
    4 sets until I cry... Not really, but by this time I'm drenched in sweat, I'm short if breath, I've usually drank 10g bcaas and I'm just beat down...

    Doing this routine, I usually only train legs only once a week, or once every two weeks because my legs grow fast. I'm a mariachi, and those pants are tight as hell, mine have already ripped 3 times in the past 6 months, and the gala (buttons on the side if the pants) is coming off because I stretch the hell out of them, lol. Also, my calves look small compared to my thighs, and that worries me...

  20. Fugger!! I have to kill my fuggin legs to get them to grow and it fuggin hurts
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  21. Lol! @DreamWeaver, what does your leg routine look like? I just wish my calves would grow as fast T_T Maybe I don't hit them hard enough? Either way, quick update: I had to work out of town yesterday, so no gym. I'm making up for that tonight though, and prolly shoot for 2 sessions tomorrow. Already wrapping up week two of the cycle, now is not a good time for me to be single I've also noticed I'm waking up hungrier every morning, but when I eat I don't seem to feel full, bloated, lethargic or any of that other stuff. I'll have to look for a few before pictures since I never posted, but my pants are fitting loose, my shirts are "hanging" off my pecs (as in my pecs look like they're poppin out, lol), so you can't see my lil gut, I think I've lost an inch or so around the navel area, and I be lookin like a mean mofo in the gym when I wear my tank tops, abs u wear a larger size to take some of the egoism out of my workouts...

  22. Chest and back day (I missed it yesterday)
