asianbabe gets down on red acid v2
Red Acid GEN 2™ is the most advanced fat incineration matrix available today... so effective you can actually feel it working !! This unique formula is designed to enhance your metabolism, control your appetite and cravings, and keep you focused and energized all day long.
* Thermogenic fatloss you can FEEL
* Control Appetite and Cravings
* Long Lasting Energy
* Enhanced metabolism
* Ephedra Free / Ephedrine Free
* Body Fat Reduction via Lipolysis
* Help Activate PPAR-alpha
* Enhanced Blood Flow
* Insulin Regulation
* Yohimbe Free / Yohimbine Free
Even with proper diet and cardio, many individuals will eventually experience problems losing fat at an "optimal" rate. Now we have the answer: Red Acid GEN 2™. Unlike other fat loss products, Red Acid GEN 2™ helps you to achieve fat loss via several different pathways to overcome your metabolism for optimal fatloss results.
Red Acid GEN 2™ includes a special cacao extract, that serves as a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha (PPAR-alpha) agonist and can help to modulate ghrelin levels, producing a hunger satisfaction and stimulating glycerol and fatty acid release from adipocytes throughout the body. To enhance this effect, we included herbal appetite suppressants that work via the brains central nervous system rather than the digestive tract to deliver a one-two punch to "knock out" hunger and cravings.
With cravings and appetite under complete control, we took Red Acid GEN 2™ to the next level with powerful naturally occuring energizers, nootropics, and thermogenics like isobutyryl-thiamine disulfide, theobromine, hordenine, evodiamine, and vinpocetine. Forskolin stimulates cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and a synergistic blend of cayenne extract and raspberry ketones releases norepinephrine, which in turn increases lipolysis and results in the reduction of fat storage. The potent cayenne extract aids in delivery and absorption. Working together, these powerful compounds work to increase your metabolism, activity level, and focus all day long making Red Acid GEN 2™ one of the most powerful and effective fatloss products on the market.
Let's face it, fatloss shouldn't be torture... with the Red Acid GEN 2™ formula, instead of constant hunger, low energy, and carb cravings, you can focus on cardio, the gym, and the other important things in your life !

Bodyfat - lots in the stubborn midsection ; skinny fat 20%
Goal (ST): recomp; and lose 5lbs of fat in the process
Long term: Forever recomp and live a healthy happy fitness oriented lifestyle
..Mon - Chest/Shoulders/Triceps/Abs; Cardio
..Tues - Legs/Back/Bis/Calves
..Wed - Cardio
..Thur - Chest/Shoulders/Triceps/Abs; Cardio
..Fri - Cardio
..Sat - Legs/Back/Bis/Calves

..Sun - off; fewer carbs, higher fat, 1.5g/lb protein
Cals will range anywhere between 1500 and 2000 a day, depending on what I'm doing.
Not set in stone, but my diet is one that is lifestyle oriented. I have been really strict with myself in the past, and I don't think that was the right attitude.. sometimes I would be skipping meals, then bingeing, then repeating was not cool, dieting is always a challenge for me. No doubt stress and lifestyle are a big factor, but I am a work in process in learning how to juggle everything. Oh yeah, and I am almost always hungry!!
Ok.. foods I like to eat:
Protein: Chicken breast, cottage cheese, kangaroo, tuna, fish, whey, eggs
Carbs: Oats, Oats, Oats, noodles, sometimes rice, bread, pasts.. bananas, fruits, veggies (everything!)
Fats: Avocados, almonds, walnuts, fishoils, olive oil
Dosing: 2 caps in the am (pre-workout); 2 caps later in the day.
Alright, lets go!!!
Not too many red acid logs on here, so feel free to ask questions, lurk, hate, whatever! Btw, the lovely Tank sent me this bottle. Thankyou !

Good luck. Not many women on AM so your log is nice to see. I dated a Korean girl that was almost exactly your size for a couple years. She was in incredible shape and all she ever did was lift. Her one weakness was her diet which I was always trying to help her with.
I may have to check out red acid. Still trying to put together a cutter stack. Does it have caffeine in it? If so how much?

LEGS & BACK
.. sumo squats: 15x66; 12x77; 10x88; 8x99; 6x110; 2 sets 1x132 (PR!)
.... ss calf raises 5 sets x 20
.. legpress 3 sets: 10, 10, 11 x 330 (last set: dropsetted 10 x 286 + 10 x 230 (+ one rep PR at the end!)
.... ss back warmup machine rows 3 sets x 15
.. narrow grip pulldowns: 15x66, 12x70; 10x77; 8x82; 6x88 (PR!)
.... ss chair straight legged ab raises 5sets x 12 (straight became bent towards the end..)
.. straight arm pulldowns: 3 sets: 10x9plates
.... ss cable biceps curl 3 sets: 10x9 plates
...by this time I was completely TRASHED. Psyched myself up for the PR on squats, and was pleasantly surprised at my ability to push it, but it felt unsatisfying for some reason. I hardly ever do singles, and though it was a PR with the BIG Wheels, I still felt, meh! Legs were gone after leg press. I don't even know how I could have gotten through Leg days in the past where I did double the number of exercises.. hmm anyway, back felt good. Supersetting smaller muscles helps to save time, as I always feel too tired at the end of the workout to focus on calves or abs. Would have liked to do some more biceps, but I was just completely fatigued. It was a great workout! My strength has been crazily increasing!
Dosing: 2 caps in the am (30 min pre-workout); 2 caps @5pm.
No unusually increased sweating during workouts. Today is high carb day, I've been eating fine...
Carbs eaten today: oats, bananas, wheat bread, weetbix, milk, chickpeas

I would have loved to do dome more shoulders and triceps, but was running late again, and I wanted to get the cardio in... reps were all funny with benching. Maybe I was till trying to wake up. No more stims for me for a little while, so we'll see how my body adjusts.
1st dose: 2 caps - 1hr after breakfast, 30min pre-workout
Nothing unusual to report. No increased energy, sweating was normal(a lot!), though I did get some mad calf pumps during step. That's about it so far.

.. Cable curls 3 sets: 10x9 plates
Workout was all over the shop today. Everything I wanted to use (well.. I only wanted the squat rack, really) was taken. I couldn't do my beloved squats, so meh, started on back instead... pretty monotonous, leg press was frkn awesome though, on the last set I was only aiming for 6, got it done no dramas, rested a tad, then went again. Siick! Lunges were also killer. I haven't done them for so long and just picked up whatever weight, had to rest between legs (and sets) though for a little bit because grip always fails on these (heavy for me) dumbbells.
1st dose: 2 caps @ 7.30am; 1.5 hours after breakfast
Took some time to wake up this morning... Got up at 6 to eat, and do my readings, but I actually crawled back into bed at about 8am for a 10min snooze (oops!) it was too tempting! But I dragged my arse out and though the workout wasn't satisfying, even with the PRs it was passable. Mornings are gonna suck this winter!! But I'll be returning to heavy stim usage soon, I'll just bear with none for now
2nd dose: 4.30pm. Appetite still down!
:: (higher carb day)
1) Oats, whey
2) Oats, whey, cottage cheese, banana, yoghurt
3) Wholewheat pasta, chicken, pasta sauce
4) Cottage cheese, yoghurt, almonds, walnuts

Winter, blah. So glad its almost summer in the states. How many times/week do you usually squat or do variations of the squat (sumo, low bar, high bar, etc)?
05-15-2007, 02:01 AM
I'll continue this for a bit longer, and then when I get bored I'll swap them for something else.. maybe deads and bulgarian squats.. or front squats.
I do that twice a week.. it is enough, but not too much to hinder cardio.. split is something like this
Another carby day over. Had some nice potato chippies with chicken salt, can't wait for low carbs, low cals and cardio tomorrow! or maybe I can..

Started with shoulders first to give them some love, got one rep more than last time so YAY! I don't think I'll increase the weight until I can do 8. My arse is still sore from last nights kicking and punching, and compounded today during spinning. Luckily legs aren't until Saturday
2nd dose: 3.30pm. No irregular sides to report!

I have no idea how you workout that much on such few cals! Great log though. How often do you weight yourself?
05-16-2007, 10:24 PM
hmm cals.. I only eat little cals on non-workout days.. when I do I'm up to about 2000.. on tuesday it was almost 2200..! today will be about 1700 or so. Maintenance is probably 1800. Since I'm recomping, my weekly cals are averaging out to be about 1700/day.

Hey Steve! Wow, good to see you here again
Thanks for for the sub dolar
Travis, haven't tried AP yet, but looks like I might have to soon. Not a huge fan of low carb diets though, because I like my carbs and my oats too much I can't go without them for too long, hehe

Update: the past week
Hey, please accept my apologies for not updating. Found out a mate passed away.. car accident.. drag racing..only 22 years old....Things have been a little rough. Workouts this week have not happened, and I decided it was time to give the body a break anyway, and so this week was "off week". Starting to appreciate life and everyone around me a lot more... getting kinda in a weird sombre mood, but anyway...getting back on this log..
So.. I have still been taking red acid at a 2x2 dosage each day. Tried 3x2 as well. I think I like that too. I am feeling a little slimmer in the face (??) and the abs are starting to tighten up. Mind you food intake has been a little on the low side as well. No ill sides from red acid so far, but nothing else dramatic to report. It seems to be helping me focus a little, as for energy, not really noticeable.
..Workouts will recommence on Saturday. Thanks for keeping up
Song for the day: [nomedia="http://youtube.com/watch?v=oketnCssiy0"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia] great song (one of my faves), disturbing video..

I couldn't follow along because I was too busy trying to figure out how to get the female in the animated gif. to stop fading away. But everything was okay in the end since she kept coming back.
Great log so far AB.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend passing away and especially at such a young age. Take time off to mourn and recover you mind and body. You and his family are in our thoughts.Hey, please accept my apologies for not updating.

Okie dokie time for a lil more action
Can't say I'm too pleased with progress thus far. I am back to being a bit of a narc and paying more attention to myself.. and good and bad news..
I have lost a little weight..
a bit of has been muscle.
I do know why.. low cals/no appetite + no workouts = so time for a little revamp and reset I think.
Cruising back into my workouts is not an issue, but I need to fix up my diet. It will be higher in carbs and cals this week.. taking the "eat more, do more" approach. Oh yeah, since I haven't been giving red acid a good enough of a trial run, I think I'm going to buy another bottle and run this log for another month
Caloric Aims.. 3days @ 1700; 1 day @ 2200..
1700 = 160g carbs, 160g protein, 40g fat (~40/40/20)
2200 = 300g carbs, 160g protein 40g fat (~55/30/15)
I will do this for two weeks and see if I can get my metabolism back to bouncy levels.
Training will be:
Morning cardio (low intensity)
Training - changing split..
- shoulders/calves/abs + cardio
- chest/tris/abs + cardio
- back/bis/calves + cardio
I need to be more accountable for my actions and I am making a checklist to make sure I get my nutrients in, my sleep in, and of course, training
Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Round #2 for the day
So I found out today that there are two ways to get warm..
1. Turn up the heater
2. Do a leg workout Let's just say I was Freezing my socks off today!!!
Squats: 3sets 4x110
Leg Press: 3 sets 8,7,7 x 363 (inadvertant PR)
DB Lunges: 2 sets: 12x33s
Good mornings: 3 sets: 10x66, 2x12x44
Standing calf raises: 3 sets 15 (bar+44) + 15 unweighted (burnieee)
This workout was better than "ok". First time I've done legs in maybe a fortnight.. squats were a bit shaky and I have lost some core strength possibly.. maybe abs this morning? I don't know.. but leg press I mistakenly put a 25kg instead of 20kg, and because I'm not so great at math, I only figured I got a pr afterwards.. dammit! Good mornings meh, couldn't feel the stretch properly, so took it lighter. Pretty good sweat happening..once I got into it, which took a while I couldn't feel my toes until I got to lunges, but I was warm everywhere else? Otherwise, yeah budday!
05-31-2007, 06:58 PM
+ 2 red acid
+ 20mins of skipping until tired or trip (1min) jog (1min) repeat repeat, threw in a few sets of jump squats as well. Legs and calves are almighty sore from yesterday!
