Here is my ongoing Applied Nutriceuticals' Lipotrophin PM log/review. Although it is a "sponsored" log, I received the product before I became a rep, so I am not quite sure what to call it.
Anyway, at first I got my dosage OK'd by AN, which was 2 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, 2 at night. But, since I sweat enough, I decided to just take it at night, with taking 2 pills before each workout, 2 between workout and bed (at night) and 2 right before bed time. My sleep quality when taking LPM is great so far, and even when I wake up in the middle of the night like I always do, I wake up all warm and comfortable. I am really enjoying this supplement, especially since the ingredients are easily researchable and the full/technical writeups are available (appnut.com). Very solid and I love what its doing!
Weight: 153 (got REAL sick )
BF: 10=11% according to caliper, and seriously MOST of my fat is around my belly which is very annoying.
Special Circumstances: I've been injured quite a few times, be it from training, car accident, snowboarding, you name it.
Sports: TENNIS. Basically, I am a pro (I make my income from tennis), and I teach tennis to people of all ages, sexes, and group sizes.
Snowboarding: Im decent. Enough said!
Martial Arts: Aikido since able (mom is a sensei, taught by the North American founder), MCMAPP (Best friend is in the Marine Corps, he taught me), ninpo (ninjitsu-very basic knowledge), Pancrase/MMA (also basic), and street.
Baseball: Played since age of walking (2 ish), but havent played on a team in about 4 years
Tuesday: Off/Cardio/Chest if necessary
I play tennis as much as I can, and whenever possible and not overloaded with college, I mountain bike around my neighborhood and up and though my old High School. Whenever I can (basically from 2 days ago) I will wake up to as many ball-situps and pushups as I can handle, and go to bed to the same.
When I get my protein in, I will be back on my 200g protein daily (it gets really expensive and I have to pay for it all + tuition + food + gas + etc...
I try to keep as clean as possible, and cheat maybe 2 or 3 times a week (a cheat for me = a meal not a day)
When I can, I get as much fruit and veggie intake as I can- natural things are good! Yes, fruit has sugar blah blah blah BUT ITS FRUIT you are meant to eat it!
I down as much liquid as I can, and when taking my soon to be I-Pro/WPI Pro, was Nectar, my water intake will be much higher. I enjoy things like fizzy vitamin c drinks, vitamin water, WPI, etc.
How I see myself
My short term goal for 30 days from now is to break 160 (I know the 2lb of muscle per month rule, but this is muscle memory), and be leaner than I am now (6 pack).
My long term goal is basically to be NEVER satisfied. If I am satisfied with myself, then there is nothing more to do. It would be like being satisfied with my tennis ability, which would mean I dont care about improving. The whole idea is rediculous. But, as tangible goal, I want to be 185 and lean (under 10% bf) one year from now, and to be on a college tennis team (Pac 10 if I can make it).
If anyone has ANY questions, please- ask away!
Once again, thank you Don!
PS: The last thing Don or anyone from AN would want me to do is lie or be dishonest about the results or my opinions on this product so this is going to be as objective as possible. If something is my opinion, I will say so.
Lets get it on.
