Melting Point+Basic Cuts (Quest for Abs)
Sorry I am starting this log a couple days late, but I been posting it in another forum so I am just gonna copy and paste what I have to this log.
Body Fat- Between 16-18% it changes everytime I measure, but it is usually between these 2 measurements.
ON Whey Protein- 24grams first thing in the morning, 48 grams post workout, and I also take some throughout the day if my meals are not very high in protein.
Matrix 5.0- 46grams before bed because it is a sustained release protein
X-tend- I sip 4 scoops while doing cardio to prevent muscle breakdown.
One-A-Day Multi vitamin
Basic Cuts- One before lifting and one capsule before cardio
Melting Point- 2 capsules in the morning, 2 in the after noon, and 2 at night (if there is a better dosing schedule feel free to let me know)
Axis Labs sesamax- one capsule after each meal ( I am just finishing up the bottle so I will only be using this supplement about a week.)
Workout: Max- OT principles and I will be running 2 miles around 3 to 4 times a week.
Goal: Lower bodyfat and maintain all my hard earned muscle

* Correction my weight is 173
Over the last year of lifting i have went from 150 to 177, but now i want to chizzel that down a bit and see if i can get a 6 pack......I am not counting my cals for this diet I am hoping the added cardio will help me lose about 2 pounds a week and I am also shrinking my portion size down from what i usually eat to help me lose some of the unwanted belly fat.

Day 1: Woke up today and got a call saying they needed me to work in 15 mintues so I didnt have much time 2 get around. I swollowed a bowl of apple jacks and drank a whey protein shake along with 2 melting point capsules and 2 basic cuts capsules. Once I arrived at work I was sent home which ticked me off haha but oh well I was able to start my workout early. I ate a turkey sandwhich once I arrived home and then started my workout.
Workout (Back and Biceps): 50 pullups- I did as many as a could until I got to 50
Barbell Row: 1 set 105lbs 6 Reps
Lat Pull Downs: 85lbs 1 set 6 Reps
Dumbell Row: 65lbs 1 set 6 Reps
Alternating Dumbell Curls: 45lbs 1 set attempted 6 reps but only completed 5
Barbell Curls: 95lbs 1 set 6 Reps
I am getting low on my jug of Xtend so I took 3 grams of cee pre and post workout to prevent muscle breakdown. I think I am going to save the xtend for my cardio workout only since xtend is kind of pricey. Overall my workout seemed pretty good. I was able to do a few more pullups in a row and everything else seemed about the same. No cramping or anything unusual to report. I will be running 2 miles midnight tonight because I like to wait at least 8 to 12 hours to do cardio after lifting. I will also take my basic cuts with dinner since I am doing cardio so late, I don't want it to effect my sleep.

Well I just got done finishing up a 2 mile run and all went well...I did notice my legs felt a little funny the second half of the day. It felt like I had growing pains. During cardio my side cramped up a little quicker than normal, but overall it was one of my better cardio perfomances and I think i pushed myself a little harder than normal which caused me to cramp up kinda quick. Overall though I think everything will be just fine.

Bench 225 3x6 ended up only doing 5-5-4 reps but with max-ot its okay as long as you do at least 4 reps
Incline Bench 155 2x6
Dumbell Bench 60 2x6
I am waiting for later today to do my ab workout. I took basic cuts first thing this morning along with my melting point and everything seems about like normal. I should have took basic cuts pre-workout, but I just got done taking a serving three hours before and I thought that was a little to soon to be taking another dose. It probably would have helped though because by the time I got to lifting I felt really lethargic. I think its because I spent the first 2 hours of the day studying for a placement test and that was so boring it made me really tired. Overall today wasnt a waste, but I don't think i worked up to my potential. I am going to try to get some cardio in some time later tonight as well so hopefully that goes well.

Well I just got done playing basketball and I was freakin pooped afterwards. I am going to count this as my cardio for tonight. I usually like to wait at least 8-12 hours after lifting to do cardio, but some buddies called me to play so I decided to break the rule today. After basketball I came home and got a little something to eat and took a serving of basic cuts. About 30 mins after I began to feel slightly warm, but nothing uncomfortable. I was actually glad it happened so I know its working.
06-14-2006 10:21 PM
Leg Extensions 2x10
Toe Raises 3x10
Cable Rope Crunches 3x12
Everything with todays workout went well. I took a servingn of basic cuts and I didn't feel much different, but my workout definitly went well. I didn't get stuck on any of my sets and didnt get to tired throughout the workout. So far everything is still going well. I think I might hit the punching bag a bit today for my cardio.

Cramping and muscle spasms is pretty common side with MP, add some calcium and Magnesium to combat this. I did a short cycle with the same stack and had great results. Good luck!

Yeh that's what I was trying to say I don't know why I wrote calcium?????, I dropped the Mag, seems ZMA was enough, but took 2mg of Potassium and only experienced Spasms for a couple days, no cramps.

Thanks Basso for the advise.....how much did you lose with melting point
06-15-2006 02:49 AM
3lbs in two weeks, and I didn't really lower my cals down to much. I'm going to do a longer run once I'm done with my USPlabs log. I've cut another 300-400 cals since I did MP so it should really jump start the fat loss! Being a hard core endo and 40yrs old I don't lose fat very easily, so 3lbs in 2 weeks without cutting a lot of cals is pretty good for me.

What does your diet look like?
If you are eating Apple Jacks for breakfast you might want to visit the nutrition forum.
06-16-2006 03:26 AM
yeah I know the applejacks don't sound to healthy, but I was called into work early that day and I had about 20 minutes to get there and at that point I just needed something quick
Day 4: Today I wasn't able to workout. I had orientation at the new college I'm transfering to and it took forever. I am pretty sore from my last few workouts so hopefully this will give me some time 2 recover.
06-16-2006 10:01 AM
I gotcha... yeah, one day isn't a big deal.

I used the Melting Point during my precontest prep and had tremendous results-Only variable I changed from past contest prep were the addition of Melting Point and Lean Extreme and was able to get a level of conditioning never attained before. You will get good results-just keep your nutrition sound!
06-16-2006 01:15 PM
I decided to get on the scale this morning and I was happy to see that I am actually down to 172 which is the lowest weight I have been all year. So far so goood. If I can lose 1-2 pounds a week I will be very happy with the results. So far my strength hasn't diminished either so hopefully everything keeps going the way it is.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I appreciate the info they have been giving me and keep it coming. I would give some rep points, but I tried it earlier and I'm not quite sure how to do it because I am new to this board.
I will be back later to update everyone on my workout.
06-16-2006 05:35 PM
Just keep in mind weight is a horrible indicator! If you can continue to drop 2lbs a week you've cut to many cals. BF, measurements, and mirrors are better indicators. That is if your trying to preserve muscle!

Alright thanks Basso...I did take some bf measurements before I started this log, but I am going to wait a few more weeks before I measure it again.
Military- 3x6 110lbs
Standing side lateral raises 2x6 35lbs
seated side lateral raises 2x6 10lbs
3x6 Barbell Shrugs 160lbs
Everything seemed to go well yesterday. Good energy and overall just a good workout. Nothing new to report.
06-17-2006 01:51 PM
Keep up the good work man. Sometimes when you are dieting and you get in a crappy mood, it feels good to come on AM and start B*tching about everything. Like Basso said, weight can be deceiving. When I am dieting I like to keep tabs on my waist measurement to track progress.
