    bpmartyr - Pragmatic Protagonist of the Anabolic Pump


    Well it has come to that point in the story of my life when I am sick of wearing my fat clothes. I am determined to lose ~15lbs by spring and figured I might as well see what AP can do in a caloric deficit. We are already seeing AP's potential in a recomp or bulk and perhaps that is the most efficatious use of this product but untill I try ....
    ______________________________ __________________
    Plan is simple:

    Maintain a small caloric deficit with roughly a 40/40/20 of quality whole foods and some proein supplementation.

    Increase deficit through cardio.

    Target adipose as the primary mass loss and maintain an anabolic or at least anti-catabolic state to lbm with the aid of AP.
    ______________________________ ___________________

    Resistance training at present consists of a three day split of moderate volume with three second eccentric and explosive concentric.

    AM cardio five days a week starting at ~25 minute sessions working up to 45. Calories will be adjusted accordingly.

    No stimulants at this time save for the daily cups of coffee and green tea extract.
    ______________________________ __________________

    Baseline weight, bodyfat % and tape measurements will be done on the first. I have been on the diet for a week and performed multiple cardio sessions to prime my body for the journey. I started preloading the AP last night.

    good luck !! I'm willing to bet that after the first month you will be almost to your target. AP at least for me was that good on a not so perfect diet.. Will be following your progress.

    Initial thoughts on the AP:
    This stuff is no joke. If I do not get carbs in almost immediately after dosing I get very sleepy/lethargic. Used this to my advantage a couple of times like this morning. Woke up, had a protein shake and an AP with no carbs and BAM! Out like a light for another 4 hrs of beautifull REM sleep. I typically have major trouble going back to a deep sleep of any respectable duration once I wake up. The potency of AP should not be underestimated IMHO.

    Only had one workout in since starting AP but holy Lord what a great chest pump after benching. This stuff is aptly named "Anabolic Pump". Havn't felt like that since the last /censored/ cycle.


    Followed resistance training by 30 minutes on the treadmill anf felt like I would have no trouble going another 30. Can't say at this point if the AP has any impact on endurance but I will certainly be investigating further.

    Here is my fat scrawney ass:

    BP,

    I am doing basically the same thing you are with AP and the 40/40/20 split. I am doing a "crossfit" type training though because I like the way it keeps the heartrate up while working out and because I was in a huge rut with the classic bodybuilding type programs. The only other supp i might use is Dialene 4 when it comes ou as it looks very promising. Good luck with the progress and I might even start a log of my own to track my progress as well. USP seems to have a great product on their hands if it does what they say and I guess we will be some of the first to find out

    Oy! Good question. Yes, three times a day. On the days I get up early for my side job I dose upon waking (approx 4 AM) and again after workout (approx 8 AM). On other days, if I am working out in the morning I will dose the first after workout. If it is an off day or I plan on an afternoon workout I will dose upon waking and again after workout.

    That's what all out bulking does to me every friggin time. Makes me fat with virtually no muscle gain. Oh well, the circle continues.

    Appetite is remaining manageable save for intense cravings in the middle of the night. I have been succoming to them moderately and adding the nutrients into fitday and adjusting daily macros accordingly.

    I am planning on weighing in weekly and checking BF bi-monthly.

    I am sitting at 1876 cals right now before din din and plan on hitting some turkey cutlets, cheese filled tortellini with marinara and a beautiful spinach, broccoli, cauliflour and tomato salad topped with homeade balsalmic & extra virgin olive oil. Can ya tell I am hungry?

    Just got a much needed bonus check, woo hoo! Wife says I can buy a Wii, if I can find one. Oh, and Nutraplanet, here I come! Excell and Chaos ought to help push me through some cario. I would normally add cAMP into a cut but am interested in the effects of AP by it's onesies.

    I think it is a little soon for me to make that determination. Less than a week on the AP and I am running almost every day where two weeks prior I was doing no cardio at all. I am feeling a little run down, understandably, but so far I have not noticed a decrease or increase in recovery between sets and untill I adapt to the cardio my MA workouts will suffer some but nothing drastic.

    I am avoiding anything noteably anabolic or thermogenic during this cycle so I can gauge AP as fairly as possible. That being said, I am going to add some Chaos and Excell by AI to aid my cardio as it increases in duration. FWIW

    Day 5, Jan 5th


    Off day for resistance training.

    AM cardio:
    33 min
    597 cals

    Cals in :2887
    Expended:2784

    Date night with the wife. We went shopping at Best Buy, a movie and dinner at a little pub where we could play Keno. The food there was outstanding. I had to guesstimate on the macros from that meal but I probably under estimated not knowing what the put in the sauce for the red snapper. I chose as healthy as I could with fish, rice, steamed veggies and a salad with oil & vinegar on the side topped with a glass of red wine.

    Caught a buzz off just one glass of wine. I had heard about AP making you a lightweight and now I know it is true for me as well.
    ______________________________ ____________________

    Nothing new to report. Muscle bellies staying nice and full and I don't seem to be losing a ton of water and glycogen like I normally do with cardio and restricted calories.

    Day 7, Jan 7 Sunday


    Afternoon cardio:
    37 minutes
    4 miles
    ~700 cals
    ______________________________ ____________________

    Cals in: 2507
    Cals expended: 2959
    33/35/25 carb/pro/fat (7% from alcohol, lol) Gotta have a couple light beers on a Sunday night.
    ______________________________ ____________________

    Feel good. Nice full muscle bellies in spite of the restricted cals & cardio. Visibly leaning out some on the extremities but weight seems to be staying pretty constant, maybe a lb down.

    NP order just showed up!

    Mailman warned me something "orangey" was leaking? Sho nuff, the bottle of Penetrate I ordered had opened somehow during transit. Stuff does a number on styrofoam packing. Melts the stuff into a goo. After extensive cleanup to the remaining products I mixed up some Chaos & Excell to help with this weeks training.

    Note: that was the last of my individual size water bottles or the fridge would be full.

    Day 9, Jan 9th Tuesfrickenday


    AM Cardio:

    15 minutes treadmill << Shin pain
    230 calories

    15 minutes rowing
    180 cals

    410 cals total

    Not bad for three hours of sleep. Note to self: do not play CSI PC game on a school night.
    ______________________________ ____________________

    Evening MA class followed by Tai Chi:
    2 hrs total, gotta be 500 cals burned.
    ______________________________ ____________________

    Cals in:2337 44/35/22 carb/pro/fat
    Cals expended: 3051

    My average cals for the week is 2439 37/34/25 with 5% alcohol, lol.
    Average burned: 2947

    That puts me at a deficit of over 4500 cals since weigh in so in theory I should be at least a lb lighter. I am not. Weight the same but I am visibly leaner. Sweet.

    Decided to add some Test E in to the mix. Will not effect the standalone portion of the AP trial due to the long ester. I am 10 days into the AP solo and the enan shouldn't really kick in for another 3 weeks and I intended the trial for 4 weeks.

    Question I have is whether to run 750mg ew for 16 weeks or drop it to 500mg for 24 weeks. Since I am not bulking but looking to lean I figure 500 should be plenty and that gives me 6 months "on". Calories will remain in a deficit for the duration either way. Thoughts?

    When I ran Test 250 i did this

    Week 1 : 250 mg
    Week 2: 250 mg
    week 3-5: 500 mg
    week 6-8: 750 mg
    Week 9: 500 mg
    Week 10-12: 250 mg

    When I did this I gained 39 lbs and kept 32 of them, that was 6 months ago, to this day I still have not lost any strength or weight.

    Clearly 750 mg is the way to go. Four months on is plenty of time to make great progress. 500 mg just isn't as much fun.

    I agree with you for the most part but keep in mind my goals. I am trying to lean out without losing LBM and slow and steady is the way to go there. I am thinking the AP will also improve the efficacy of the anabolics so a lower dose may be rendered more effective. I am not disagreeing, more arguing with myself out loud, lol. I see the positives of a higher dose as well but I also like the idea of 24 weeks on just because I feel so friggin good while I am. I love test, so does my wife .
    One other thing to note is I have ran high doses of test before without a real noticeable difference in gains. FWIW
    Thanks for the replies/opinions, keep em comin.

    Sorry I missed the Test post Obi-Wan. I think, as I know you do from the tone of your posts, that 24 weeks would be a better option for reasons twofold. Firstly, this would allow you to really take your time in cutting, in fact, you could do much more of a recomp given the extra 8 weeks as opposed to a straight cut. Secondly, you stated that bumping to
    750mg did not produce results for you significantly beyond that of 500mg, so cutting the cycle short for an insignifcant advantage does not seem beneficial.

    That is what I think and I'm stickin' to it..
