Stats: 6'1" @ 186.5 lbs
BodyFat: I estimated 14% bf (I really have no idea but from pictures posted on AM, people estimated 12-14%)
Body Type: Ecto (66%) / Meso (33%) - very thin growing up but have forced myself to gain muscle
Goals: Gain strength and size with minimal fat gain on a consistent basis
Goals Specific for this product cycle: Gain strength and lean size and not lose it after I go off the cycle. When I cycle off creatine I lose a lot of gains and I hope this product does not have the same drawback. Because of this I will likely log (though not as frequently) for 2-3 weeks after I am done taking to see if I have dramatic strength loss or not.
Medical issues: none
Past Supplements: Very little experience other than multivitamin, creatine, whey protein, fish oils (1 recent 7 week cycle on Leviathan, light use has been discontinued for the past 2 weeks to prep for the log).
Current: Multi, Whey, omega3, BCAA, (on and off)
Diet: In check for the most part. Try to eat clean all the time but I'm not super crazy about it. Realistically average about 2200 calories a day, but I have an office job
Workout: Typically a 3 or 4 day split - chest/tris, back/bis, legs/shoulders, 4thday misc (more leg, abs, etc.)
Cardio: Honestly, have been slacking for the past couple months but am getting back into the "couch to 5k plan". I might toss in some HIIT but I have to get my knees in shape first otherwise I get horrible knee tendon pain and shin splits.
Other: I'm just a regular guy but with good intensity and a good diet. I don't like to mix too many things b/c I like to see how certain supps affect me by themselves so I know what to buy again. If I stack 6 things, how do I know which one actually is working? I hope to be like a test case of how a single supplement or two (plus the basics of protein, oils, multi) affects a normal person who lifts with very good intensity. I think this will be a good "real world" test for those people who are new to supps or for those who aren't looking to spend $300 a month to stack many items.
