  1. Gator,

    Great log so far...I will be following as I am interested in this product as well.


  2. Thanks! I'll keep it up.

    You may want to think about raising your protein to 40 % and lower the fat to 20%.

    Ok, all rested, now lets kick some booty on that IRON

  4. Yeah, the 40/40/20 is what I shoot for, but sometimes I miss. I don't do any canned diets, just eat whatever I want with Excel guiding me.
    I weigh my food after cooking, so beforehand I'm estimating. I think that's why I stray off a bit.

    But I still like to try to get the macros even with each meal, for example if I am too heavy on carbs I won't skip carbs on a meal to make up for it - nutritionally I think that's worse. But I did come closer today.

    Day 10
    Calories: 2345
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 41/34/25
    Cardio: 400 cal
    Weight (AM): 177
    Notes: Extra day off. Did cardio in the morning - 20 minutes ArcTrainer (elliptical-esque) and then Tabata sprints on the treadmill. First time with Tabata sprints, dear gawd that is not for the meek. Felt that all day. The bright side is that it gave me a nice buzz for 5 minutes.

  5. Day 11
    Calories: ~ 3686
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: ~ 31/34/26
    Cardio: 525 cal
    Weight (AM): 175
    Notes: Chest/Tri/Abs. Felt pretty good and had moderate gains in strength. Did 30 mins AM cardio, and another Tabata sprint session post-workout. I downed 1/2 my post-wo shake before hand, and it felt pretty good. It didn't kick my butt so bad, even though I slightly increased the speed. (Unless otherwise noted, my cardio is in the AM on an empty stomach).

  6. Day 12
    Calories: ~ 3955
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: ~ 26/38/27
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): 177
    Notes: Leg day. Went a little lighter. Quads were really burning from the two previous days with Tabata sprints!

  7. Day 13
    Calories: 2545
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: ~ 36/42/24
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): 178
    Notes: Back/Rear Delt/Biceps. Was really tired, downed some coffee and hit the gym. Still made some progress, but almost blew chunks. Skipped cardio because I wasn't feeling well at all. Glad next day (today) is an off day!

  8. Day 14
    Calories: 1960
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 40/42/20
    Cardio: ~250
    Weight (AM): 176.5
    Notes: A day off, but went swimming for a 1/2 hour at night. Started getting pain in L wrist a while ago but so far it has not effected my lifts. Since day 11 I have been taping it up for workouts.

  9. Just curious.... How are you calculating your macros? Just noticed your last post added up to 102% and one before was 91%

  10. LOL, I was thinking of mentioning that in today's post too!

    I use Excel, for one I round to the nearest whole number. I also take whatever nutritional info provided and have Excel multiply the carbs and protein by 4, and fat by 9.

    I just did a search, because I couldn't remember the exact numbers - carbs are actually 3.6 cals per gram, and protein 4.1 or 4.2. The FDA allows labelers to round numbers.

  11. Day 15
    Calories: 2955
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 38/41/23
    Cardio: 530
    Weight (AM): 176
    Notes: Chest/Tri/Abs day. First time with no strength gains - starting to think the HIIT Tabata sprints are too much with my routine. On the 4th interval I thought I was gonna lose dinner.

    Have done them 3x in one week, thinking of just once or cut them out until I change my schedule. Over the past 4 days now I've felt a bit tired, haven't slept as well, some stomach distress and have had a headache as well.

  12. Are you doing the 2x or the 3x dosing? How are the gains so far?

  13. Read the first few lines of the first post.
    Taking 3 pills a day. Bottle indicates the dose as 2-3 per day.

  14. Day 16
    Calories: 2114
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 22/37/42
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): 176
    Notes: Scheduled leg day. Was really lagging today. I was feeling really burned out and worked all day, and decided to skip legs. First day that I fell short on 1g protein per pound bodyweight per day.

  15. Day 17
    Calories: 2982
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 39/34/26
    Cardio: 373
    Weight (AM): 176
    Notes: Back/Rear Delt/Biceps. Glad I skipped legs - all the HIIT/Tabata sprints were killing my legs. Didn't feel so burned out, and looked forward to hitting the gym. I had a good workout with decent strength gains. Still have the morning headaches though, even on the morning of day 18.

    Although i haven't noted it in my log, I too have been getting morning headaches.....I have been attributing it to allergies, but now you got me thinking....

  17. Day 18
    Calories: 2846
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 23/37/21
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): Didn't weigh in.
    Notes: Off day. Headache in the morning.

  18. Day 19
    Calories: 3223
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 33/30/19
    Cardio: 400
    Weight (AM): 175.5
    Notes: Chest/Triceps/Abs. Morning headache again. Almost no progression with chest and tricep exercises. Seem to have hit a plateau.

    Macros count up a little short, it was Sat. Night, had some alky.

  19. Day 20
    Calories: 2661
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 35/44/20
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): 176.5
    Notes: Legs. Morning headache again, skipped the L-Ornithine/Acetyl L-Carnitine combo but had some drinks last night. (I have been taking this at night since Jan).

    Went a little lighter, as my knees have been feeling bad. Stepped back 10 pounds and kept reps the same to progressively go back up.

    Hmm... I dunno what to think. I didn't start having headaches until day 15. I attributed it to early warning signs of overtraining, but now that you mention it I am not sure. I have the next two days off of weights, with just some cardio tomorrow. I'll see how they go after the rest.

    I think I'll keep my split to this
    3 weights / 1 full rest
    3 weights / 1 rest + Tabata sprints / 1 full rest

    I can keep up doing the HIIT to keep my metabolism up, almost once per week interval. On the outside days of weights I do low-intensity cardio (65% max HR).

  21. Now this morning I didn't really have a headache. Almost felt like i was going to, then its gone. Blood pressure is fine as I just got it checked when i went for my allergy shot. Why it comes on hours after my last dose is odd, but it leaves quickly and today and actually the past couple days it was non existant.

  22. Again I had a headache in the morning. It wasn't quite as bad as the days before. I never get the headaches after a dose. I don't get them later in the day, but early in the am - I have them when I wake up.

    Day 21
    Calories: 2801
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 24/36/35
    Cardio: 420
    Weight (AM): 175.5
    Notes: Back/Rear Delt/Biceps. Slight gains in strength. I had a headache in the morning, but not quite as bad as the days before.

  23. Gator, you may have low blood sugar in the morning, if the headache goes away after eating that is prolly it. Do you drink a shake before bed or eat cottage cheese before bed?

  24. I'll have to look out for that, but I don't think it goes away necessarily after eating. I do cardio on an empty stomach, and if I remember right it goes away during cardio. I've been taking Ibuprofen when I wake these past days with the headaches.

    Day 22
    Calories: 2277
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 30/41/26
    Cardio: 151
    Weight (AM): 177.5
    Notes: Off day. Did HIIT Tabata sprints in the evening. Was easier than last time at last speed (10.0). Had a headache again in the morning.

  25. Day 22
    Calories: 2234
    Macro Pro/Carb/Fat: 27/35/37
    Cardio: None
    Weight (AM): 177
    Notes: Off day. No cardio. Had a headache in the morning.
