Sounds crazy right? This is gonna be my "no supplement" log. Like many of you, I have been using all the latest and popular supplements for the last couple of years. We're pretty familliar with the effects of heavy supplementation. Let's take a look at the contrast, coming from someone who is an addict and plans on relapsing soon.
I consider myself well informed. I don't just buy something because it's new, but I have fallen victim to the hype machine more than once. I've tried almost everything out there, and haven't seen much progress over the past year. I'm at a plateau I guess.
I'm taking a break form creatine, beta alinine, thermogenics/diet pills, herbs, glucose support, etc. I'm only using whey, multi, fish-oil and caffeine. For me this is really no supplements.
I'm currently cutting/recomping. I've been doing the anabolic diet for almost 4 weeks, but I Guess not precisely enough. I think I need to get my fat intake up. Protein between 120- 200g, carbs less than 50g except for weekends, and fats according to the AD should be around 185g.
I lift 3-4 times a week, high volume. Cardio 3-4 times a week around 30min medium intensity.
I'm already about a week in to my no supp training. One big diference I've noticed, presumably from dropping the creatine and extra bcaa's, is some good soreness. It was pretty difficult to get sore. I've aslo reduced caffiene from 400-500 mg x2 a day, to 200-300mg total. Been a little foggy and run down in the evenings. I'm hoping my head adapts soon.
