  1. Day[12]


    Pre WO - 3 scoops Extend + 2 Scoops Poseidon + VasoXplode + 6g ALCAR + 1 cap TNA

    Peri WO - 6 scoops Extend + 1 Scoop Poseidon

    Post WO - Evolution + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 1 cap Lean Xtreme + 2 caps Vigor

    Circuits:3
    Durations:130s
    Rest:90

    A1)Deadlifts:65x55, 65x50, 65x40 // 145 total reps
    A2)Push-ups:95,90,100 // 285 total push-ups
    A3)Back Squats:65x55(2), 65x40 // 150 total reps
    A4)Lat Cable Pulldown:60x90, 50x100, 50x105 // 295 total reps

    Extremely challenging workout for me. I am use to drop sets, supersets, and giant sets, but 120-130 second duration sets was killer for me. Typically my reps ranges only reach 12+ towards the end of my workouts for isolation lifts. The 2 scoops of Poseidon made a difference, mentally and recovery wise. This time I actually had energy to walk out of the gym.

    Day[13]
    Had my Pose + BCCA waiting for me chilled when I awoke. Woke up with no problem. Able to enjoy a re-feed day. Forgot my AP at work, which would have complemented my re-feed day ideally.

    Anywho, pizza was on the menu, and after I ate it, I wish it wasn't. Only had a couple slices, but felt like crap after eating. I felt like a stuffed pig and got real sleepy.

    Didn't do any HIIT, but I did do a HIIT inspired heavy bag session.

    Day[14]
    No training day, so wifee compiled a list of things to do for me, which helped me stay busy and didn't think twice about continuing my re-feed day. Oh and watched The Nuggets take Game 1 v the Spurs...

    End of the day scale weight was 190. I am giving credit to the carb-up day, so I will re-weigh myself after day[15] or [16]...

  2. day[15]


    - Phase II -

    1 hour prior to my pre-wo supps, had a light snack

    Pre WO:
    1 hour before WO, 4 caps RPM
    .5 hour before WO, 3 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 2 caps PowerFULL & Super Cissus Rx

    Peri WO:
    6 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon

    Post WO: 1 cap TNA, PowerFULL, & Super Cissus Rx + 2 caps Vigor

    Sets:6
    Reps:4
    Rest:60

    A1)Barbell Step-ups:165x4(4), 170x4, 175x4
    // First time using BB for step-ups, usually use DB's, so load was heavy enough to maintain form and balance.
    A2)Underhand Bent-over Barbell Rows: 205x4(5), 215x4

    B1)Push-Press: 120x4, 125x4, 135x4, 140x4, 145x4, 150x4
    // Spent the first part of the year ‘rehabing’ right shoulder, where pressing overhead gave me problems, and actually hurt just using the bar. Tonight, it felt good, but haven’t regained all my strength back into my shoulders.
    B2)Cable Crunches: 100x4(6)

    C1)Power Cleans: 155x4, 160x4, 165x4, 170x4(3)
    // Last phase I was only doing hang cleans at 150x6(4) at the begining of my workout, so I was pleased with my power cleans, although my oly lifts are still weak.
    C2)Standing Calve Raises: 495x4(6)
    // 10 second negatives with person pulling down on the rack


    Overall a pretty solid workout, loads are still on the lighter side, because of the short recovery time.

    As far as RPM, I didn't feel any dramatic changes that I was reading in the thread. About 15 minutes after taking the pills, I felt my chest open up more, and I felt more relaxed with a clear mind. After taking the Poseidon, I felt a bit more energy, but did not feel aggressive. However, before I workout I like to relax and keep a controlled 'rage' for when my muscles are actually loaded.
    I maintained my strength throughout the entire workout and actually felt I could push it more.

    After the workout, I felt a solid pump, and my CNS actually felt fresh, where generally I will walk out where it feels taxed. So, all in all, RPM was quite nice if it was the reason for the sustained strength.

    Great detail. Very informative!

    Workin
  4. Day[16] && Day [17]


    It rained non-stop yesterday from 5am till about 8pm
    I was still down to do some HIIT, whether it was outside or inside on a treadmill. However, a downstairs window was leaking and I spent my evening clean up water and resealing my windows...

    Day[18]
    Generally I workout at 8pm, mainly because I finally got teh lil lady to hit the gym again. Otherwise, I prefer to lift around 11am-12pm for my lunch. Today the misses had the day off so we hit the gym at noon.

    Pre WO
    11:00am 5 caps RPM
    // Felt a lot more stilmulation from the RPM this time. Could also be my last meal was 2 hours prior where last time it was probably a little less than an hour

    11:30am 3 scoops Xtend + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 2 caps PowerFull & Super Cissus + 1 cap TNA

    Peri WO
    6 scoops Xtend + 1 Scoop Poseidon

    Post WO
    1 Scoop Evolution + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 1 cap Retain

    Sets:3
    Reps:15
    Rest:70s

    A1)Pulldown *Used Flite machine:140x15(3)
    A2)Burpees: 15(3)
    // I was only supposed to do Squat Thrusts, but I thought I was a bad ass so I did Burpees instead, and man did they kick my ass towards the end of the 2nd set and all of my 3rd set

    B1)Swiss Ball Crunches: 25x15(3)
    // Abs felt shot from the Burpees
    B2)Back Ext: 25x15(3)
    // Got a pretty serious back pump, which kind of felt good, because my back was twisted from falling a sleep on the couch last night

    C1)Decline Bench Press:225x14, 225x10^5, 205x12^3
    ^10-15 second rest then continued
    //Chest felt strong, but after 8 reps the weight got heavy real fast

    C2)Seated DB External Rotations:15x15(3)

    D1)Squats: 135x15, 145x15(2)
    //Weight felt light, but it was taxing to get the full amount of reps. So, I focused on contraction, I always due, but I really accentuated each rep. I also paused 2 seconds at the bottom when I felt my ass touch my calves.
    D2)Seated Leg Curls:70x15(2), 55x15(2)
    //First set I kept my toes neutral, second toes pointed in, third toes pointed out. On Concentric portion of the lift, I pointed my toes towards me, and the eccentric I pointed my toes away. I dropped the weight on the last set to try and squeeze the weight more, but it felt as heavy as the first two sets.

    Unlike the 6 set 4 rep range, I felt it. I was still mentally sharp, but my body was pushed. I would like to think I could have pushe d it harder, but the weights chosen did elicit a high metabolic cost
  5. day[19]-day[22]


    day[19]
    no HIIT again

    day[20]
    Pre WO
    1 hour prior - Chaos

    Bodysquats: 100

    Standing DB shoulder press:20x50, 12, 16, 15, 7

    forgetable.

    day[22]

    Pre WO:
    1 hour before WO, CHAOS
    .5 hour before WO, 3 scoops Xtend + 1 scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 2 caps PowerFULL & Super Cissus Rx

    Sets:6

    B2)Cable Crunches: 100x4(6)

    C2)Standing Calve Raises: 495x4(6)
    // 10 second negatives with person pulling down on the rack

    I pushed the intensity on the first sets, so by the time I reached the power cleans, weight started getting heavy. Either that or RPM is that good????

  6. day[23] Chaos -vs- RPM


    6:00am LiquiCLen (about 1/4 of the dropper == 50mcg) + Poseidon + 3 scoops Xtend

    Another nooner...Taking the lil lady on a "sweet escape"...

    Pre WO
    11:00am 1 Scoop Chaos
    // Seems when I take me pre-workout formulas in the late morning/early afteroon, I get a greater stimulation, plsu today, only about 5 hours in to me clen dosage...

    11:30am 3 scoops Xtend + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 2 caps PowerFull & Super Cissus + 1 cap TNA

    Peri WO
    6 scoops Xtend + 1 Scoop Poseidon

    Post WO
    1 Scoop Evolution + 1 Scoop Poseidon + 1 cap TNA + 1 cap Retain

    Sets:3
    Reps:15
    Rest:70s

    A1)Pulldown *Used Flite machine:
    RPM: 140x15(3)
    // Weight felt heavier towards the last set

    Chaos: 140x15(3)
    // Weight felt heavy at first, but felt strong on the last set

    A2)Burpees:
    RPM: 15(3)
    Chaos: 15(3)
    // Today, I felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest, and I had to walk around the gym for my rest. Must have been because of the Clen.


    B1)Swiss Ball Crunches:
    RPM: 25x15(3)
    Chaos: 25x15(3)
    // Felt heavy, but felt like I was getting better muslce contraction


    B2)Back Ext:
    RPM: 25x15(3)
    Chaos: 25x15(3)
    //Felt a bit easier, but not as much of a pump as last week. Plus, I was still trying to catch my breath from the burpees



    C1)Decline Bench Press:
    RPM: 225x14, 225x10^5, 205x12^3
    ^10-15 second rest then continued

    Chaos: 225x15, 225x12^3, 205x13^2
    //Felt strong on bench, but I also had a set target to beat.


    C2)Seated DB External Rotations:
    RPM: 20x15(3)
    Chaos: 20x15(3)
    // Not too much difference here.


    D1)Squats:
    RPM: 135x15, 145x15(2)
    //Weight felt light, but it was taxing to get the full amount of reps. So, I focused on contraction, I always due, but I really accentuated each rep. I also paused 2 seconds at the bottom when I felt my ass touch my calves.

    Chaos: 145x15(3)
    // Felt light, but once again I felt the clen


    D2)Seated Leg Curls:
    RPM: 70x15(2), 55x15(2)
    //First set I kept my toes neutral, second toes pointed in, third toes pointed out. On Concentric portion of the lift, I pointed my toes towards me, and the eccentric I pointed my toes away. I dropped the weight on the last set to try and squeeze the weight more, but it felt as heavy as the first two sets.

    Chaos: 70x15(2)
    //Felt good throughout the set.



    Conclusion:
    After only two workouts I can't state which is better, because they are both great pre-workout supps, and I need to take in account that outside inflluences can contribute positivly or negativly, like the fact I am on clen now.

    Furthermore, I do like the fact that RPM is in a capsule form, which makes it easier to take, and carry on the road, but then again I could cap Chaos???
  7. Been a minute since last update...


    day[29]
    it's been shaky thanks to work and other outside influences. Training has remained constant and intense, but diet is starting to get rough. Just haven't made the time to prepare my meals. However, I am still cutting fat and maintaining LBM.

    2.5 minutes of jumping jacks. I was pretty close to puking...

    Stretching
  9. 3 weeks left


    I have 3 weeks left of my cut and have dropped around 13lbs scale weight, but the diet hasn't exactly fit my macro-nutrient breakdown, not dirty, but more carbs and calories then my cut allows; therefore, I will now start logging my meals to make sure I stay on track.

    Furthermore, I will switch from an 80% caloric deficit to 70%.
    Protein will remain the same: 1.5g per lbs
    I will stay the course and follow the fat dominant approach, so the remaining calories will be 80/20 fat and carbs respectively.

    Daily Caloric Intake:2094kcal
    Daily Protein Intake:278g(1112kcal)
    Daily Fat Intake:87g(783kcal)

    Final thoughts. Calories lower than targeted, which I am okay with since it was a sedentary day. Was supposed to do bike sprints, but I having trouble making it to the gym when I am not actually lifting weights. Protein intake was low though, about 1.18g per pound. Would like to keep it up no lower that 1.25, but ideally 1.50. Carbs were over but by 3g but no starches. Fat intake was significantly lower, so need add some olive oil to get my fats covered.

    You look GREAT but I can tell your a perfectionist.

    A few things that I notice really helping my mid section get shredded...quick, that you MAY want to incorporate into your program more is:

    1. cutting my shakes down to 1-2 per day if possible...More Whole foods.

    2. No dairy food.

    3. 4-6 grams of Fish Oil spread out over 4-6 meals.

    4. Lowering my sodium intake (watch the pickles, seasoning on meat, etc...)

    5. Drinking at least 2 gallons of water per day.

    6. Get a tan! lol!

    This is where I was/am struggling. I am going to plan my meals for next week, and make a point to do all the preparation this weekend.

    I have three types of Fish oil products right now. Flameout, Myo-D, and Triple Fish Fats. I will have to double check my dosages and see that I am taking in 4-6 grams of fish oil.

    What is your opinion of CLA?

    Ouch, this will be a toughy. At least with the seasoning on the meats.

    I might be currently getting in a gallon. I do good at work, about a gallon, but once I get home, I hit the diet Root Beer. And once I wake up I do feel pretty dehydrated.

    Wow, these metabolic/lactate workouts are kicking my butt. I had a workout partner for the first few weeks, but looks like he bailed on me, because he hasn't showed for the last 3 weeks, and just says he is too busy to go lift.

    When I leave I am drenched in sweat. Heartbeat is beating out of my chest...

    Today though I feel pretty good. I think the Replenish helped out dramatically in recovery.

    I'm sure many people will jump on me for this, but if your really trying to loose those last few pounds from around your mid section, I have found, with myself and many clients over the years, that dairy food (especially Cottage cheese with it's high sodium content) makes this more difficult. I realize there are studies that show calcium supplementation is beneficial for fat loss and therefore many choose to eat dairy. I recommend staying off ALL dairy for 3 weeks and try a calcium supplement instead. I'll bet 9 out out of 10 people will notice their mid section tighten up a bit...especially if they are already lean. Again, I can hear the rebuttal arguments now, so just take it for what it's worth...my observation, nothing more.

    Fish oil is a must when dieting IMHO. Sounds like you have this covered.

    My opinion on CLA...I noticed nothing from it when taking up to 6 grams per day. I believe it became effective for me around 9 grams per day after continuous supplementation for 4-5 weeks. Bottom line, not very cost effective IMHO.

    You can purchase sodium free seasoning in the grocery store. It's actually quite good!
    Also look into using small amounts of Honey Mustard. Its low in calories, sodium and can really add a nice flavor to many meat dishes. Apple Cider vinegar is a good additive as well as Balsamic Vinegar.

    Be careful with the diet soda. Nutra Sweet has been shown to have negative effects on blood sugar over time, not to mention the other side effects that you always hear about. Everything in moderation...but especially artificial sweeteners.

    Also, carbonation is terrible for your bones and robs your body of minerals. It can also cause water retention, especially around the love handles. (I thought that might get your attention, lol!)

    Good luck my friend! I wish you great success! Keep us updated!

    Thanks Workin. You are a gentleman and a scholar

    I have around 2 more weeks for my cut, I am sure I can cut out the majority of dairy from my meals.

    Nice, I will remember this. Also Vinger lowers the GI of foods

    Who me, are you talking to me???
    Yeah, I hear a lot of negative stuff about diet soda. I was drinking at least 3-5 cans a day, but have dropped to 1-2.

    And I've started taking l-lysine, because it's benefits on calcium absorption and conservation...

    Thanks again for the help.

    I currently use Super EPA by "NOW". San makes a good one...I think you listed it. Just look for about 1,000 mgs total Fish oil per capsel, with at least 500 mgs coming from EPA/DHA. There are many good brands out there.

    As far as the diet soda...we ALL have our vices! lol! I CRAVE Diet Coke every now and then to the point of HAVING TO HAVE one! I woke up at 2:00 am one morning with the biggest craving that I actually got out of bed, got dressed and drove down to the store to by a can.

    Everything in moderation.

    Happy to help anytime my friend!
