  1. 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.

    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:

  10. 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

  11. looking good! looking forward too seeing the final result

  12. Hey a bottle of nair and a bit more cardio will whip you into pretty boy shape LOL Your not fat!!! Better throw away the beer and the tv remote and give your wife your wallet, this way you will follow her everwhere to protect your money and lose fat in the midst of it all Now lets get crackin bud !!!!!!!!!!


  13. Hey Bp- are you taking as directed, 3 caps/day?

    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.

    Or down ....

    in pant size, lol.

    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.

    Here are pre bulk cycle pics from May '06:

    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.

  19. Man, I lizove your logs Bastard Prognosticator. So much detail.

  20. how has your recovery been between sets. Has AP made a difference with your mma?

    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

  22. Day 5, Jan 5th

    Off day for resistance training.

    AM cardio:
    33 min
    597 cals

    Cals in :2887

    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.
