**** For the long-story short version scroll down some ****
I have been a member on this website for some time, but this is my first posts asking for advice/direction.
I recently began working out with a few friends at my college gym(its free and has everything i should need) and I am ready to take working out serious for once.
Im 21, weight about 195-205, have a bit of a beer belly(its college :P) and stand about 6'2" maybe 6'3" on a good day.
I have been working out for about 2 years on and off, but this semester we have begun working out 5 days a week, usually only 2 body parts per day.
Chest + Biceps
Shoulders + legs
Back + tri's
Biceps + forearms
Heavy on chest
Rest over the weekend, and repeat. Of course changing up the exercises from week to week for each day of target areas.
Diet: i tend to eat as healthy as possible. i frequent sushi, stay away from burgers for the most part, and sub fries for salads. Im forced to eat on the go with all the school work, so i have to make due with fast food, or local places. For instance if i get a sub, its on wheat bread, mustard,no mayo, no bacon. Just Turkey cheese, and spices. My girlfriend and I also cook meals which all have "healthier" ingredients.
Anyways, I have been researching through the forums to find a nice strength gain supplement, and perhaps a weight-loss supp.
One thread said that, Epistane was a good beginners pro-anabolic product. I guess its good to try since it is supposed to prevent+ maybe eliminate gyno. Reducing gyno would be important to me as i have accumulated some over the years and the muscle seems to just "build up" under it, instead of reduce it.
Also, gathering what i could from the forums, stacking that with either Recreate or Reloaded. I have seen good reviews on both, so i may just pick the one which is on special at the time.
A good whey protein for meal replacement + post workout meals will be purchased also.
So would it be wise to stack Epistane + recreate/reloaded + whey protein shakes for meal rep/post workout shakes? To add to this, if i do take epistane how should I take them, the whole "pulse" thing is a little confusing when it comes to; when to take the pills + how many per day. I see 20/30/30/40 yet i dont understand how to relate that to pill form.
I understand that i will have to incorporate cardio into my routine, im thinking 2- 3 days in the mourning before my nightly workout routine. Yet, more importantly, im looking to shed weight, loose the gut and moobs, and generally start to feel healthier.
Im not going to say i want to get shredded in 3 months, i just want to add on some muscle + strength, all while loosing un-needed fat. Also i understand that diet plays a HUGE, if not the most important role in exercise. I may try the 5-6 smaller meals/day if i can work around my schedule.
If anyone is willing to suggest anything, advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking time to read through all my BS.
*** Long-story short***
Should i stack Epistane + Recreate or Reloaded + whey protein(for meal replacements and post w/o)?
How should I take the Epistane, I dont understand the whole pulse thing. I know the reason behind pulsing, to prevent side-effects after the cycle, but not sure on the dosage.
