  1. USPlabs Recreate and the Quest for Abs!


    Background: 6 years training, 4.5 eating right. BF has gone from over 22% to now around 14-15% I guess. I gain muscle pretty easily, and have a hard time loosing weight. I am very carb sensitive. I have chronic lumbar and cervical strains, but am in the process of getting them corrected (God willing). Also broke my arm in '05 and had it surgically repaired. Tendonitis and bursitis in elbow and tricep keeps my strength in check.

    Goal: I want to see all of my abs and seperation between my pecs. I guess that's around 7%BF. I know that it will take a lot of work.

    Diet: all approximations. I am not a maticulous calorie counter but I keep track of my daily intake.
    Protien: 150-175g mostly whey blends and chicken, lean meat.
    Carbs: Keeping carbs to a minimum during the week, less than 75g. "Carb up" on the weekends, nothing crazy.
    Fats: 60-80g. Enova oil, fish oil, almonds, etc.
    My diet will be very good, not perfect. I see some other guys list thier meals and I am impressed.

    Other supps: Adding Activate Extreme and some Maca. May skew results some, but not much IMO.
    Staples:
    Extra caffeine will be needed
    Creatine
    Fish oil
    Multi
    Whey

    Training: 3-4 times per week. I concentrate on mind muscle connection and usually finish one set of exercise to failure. My workouts are high volume, shorter rest period. Cardio will be 4-5 times a week 30-45min.

    Measurements:
    5'10, 200
    Waist is 36' at navel
    BF 14-15%?

    Yeterday:
    First dose of 2 caps around 3:00 PM. No stim effect, but I have a stupid high tolerance. I did notice a little dry mouth and a some extra focus. Got a real good sweat going during cardio. I have been advised not to go higher then a 2x2 dosing schedule, which was originally my plan.

    Today I noticed some dry mouth again, but I drink water all day so it has not been a problem. Felt a nice little warm feeling this morning also.

    All questions,advice and/or positive comments are welcome. I'm hoping in 4 wks to really see some improvement in my mid-section.

  3. Recreate Feedback thread----Let the games begin!

    Post in there as well, and get the chance for more ReCreate(tm) Cool!

  4. I will keep an eye on this thread, I am definately interested in Recreate

  5. Added my Activate this evening, pretty happy about that. I really did feel warmer today, though the temp outside is higher. Dry mouth came and went.

    I took some added caffeine with my afternoon dose and it was sa-weet! I was really jacked towards the end of my workout. I know that recreate is not intended to be a stim, that's why I added it.

  12. Have had some dry mouth yesterday and today. It's hard to drink water constantly at work.

    Also worked really late last night unexpectedly, and didn't get home untill 7:30. Still took 2 caps. I had no problem sleeping. I actually went to bed about 2 or 3 hours later.

    I'll post updated pics when I feel like it's worth it.

  15. Update: About 1 wk

    Thermo effect has been moderate, pretty good a few times. Sweet tooth has been normal, maybe some reduction.

    I did try 3 with added caffeine, and wow! Super clarity, very strong.

    The only negative has been dry mouth, but it's not too bad.

    Now the good news. I'm down 2.5 lbs the first week! I think this may be an accurate number. I did not make a big change in my diet when I started, so I don't think it's water weight. The real test will be if I can keep this pace for 3 more wks.

    Diet: B+
    Training: B-

    Good first week. Let's keep it going.

    Right on. I hope they're worth posting. I really don't care what the scale says, it's about the mirror.

    Good stuff man! i am interested to see how this recreate works out.

  19. Big ups to USP! They sent me 2 super cissus along with a bonus AP! I'd been wanting to try this version of AP but really couldn't afford it. My wife was really impressed as well. It is a blessing.

    So 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening for cissus? And AP before carb-rich meals? I may just save AP for the weekends when I eat more, since I'm keeping my carbs low during the week.

    BTW, waist is down an inch! That may a better indicator than my digital scale, which varies so much.

    Have you tried the older version of AP? If so, how do you feel the new one compares?

    I'll let you know.

  22. So I started the SC last night, 4/19. And I used the AP this weekend as I carbed up. Since I cycle my carbs during the week, I'll be using the AP as needed.

    Had a real good thermo effect today from the Recreate. I start spring football practice tomorrow. 2 wks. It'll be hard to judge how much cardio I'm getting in out there but I know it's hot and it's work.

  23. Diet and training were good today. Practice kinda sucked for various reasons. Hit bi's and tri's before, then got home at 7:15 and ran my neighborhood for about 40 min. Long day.

    Used 1 AP before breakfast, my biggest carb meal. And used 1 before my workout. Great pump on less than 40 carbs.

    Coaching is better. It hurts less

    The pain never bothered me, especially when I was delivering it. It was the discipline I lacked. Looking back, it takes a real special young man to overcome circumstances (if he has them) and "get it right" at 16 or 17 years old.

    Me neither, until I played in a league at 31 after a few years of coaching. I realized I could get a lot of the thrill of playing and less of the aches & pains and that you body doesn't bounce back as quickly at 30+ as at 17. Also, the mental aspect of it was so much more engaging as a coach.

  29. Quick update on the now longer list of supps I'm using:

    RECREATE: Thermo effect is still quite noticeable. I'm down 3-3.5 lbs or so and lost at least an inch off my waist. I may wait untill week 3 to post pics.

    ACTIVATE X: I was really just looking for a libido boost/alpha feeling. Gotta say I haven't noticed much. Libido is just steady, been dosing 6 a day for the last 5-6 days.

    SUPER CISSUS: Early, but elbow felt pretty good today hitting chest. Best it's felt in a while so, this is promising.

    AP: Using as needed. Maybe 1 on low days, only gone 3 once or twice. Pumps have been real good the 2 workouts I've used it.
