    Geez, "The One".. and the rest so tired of being ripped off


    nothing...ever works as promised it seems in my case anyway. Yeah I'm venting off a little steam.

    I so tired of dropping so much money on supplements that do nothing. Maybe it's just me, but in the last year I have tried so many things that promise huge results and I gain nothing, and I'm sure I work a lot harder than most people.
    I know my age (46)has got to be hurting my gains or (lack of) some, but, I'm just finishing up with THe ONE, and I really feel like if anything I lost size. Before that I was on the 1-T, and before that the PRIME stack. I of course did do the PCT between each.. I just get so tired of not seeing any results for my hard earned money and work. I work out 5 days a week, and I swear I'm getting smaller. My strength never changes either same now as it was 2 + years ago when I decided to get back in the gym. I get so excited and tell my workout buddies that "this is the one" this time this product will work...
    then 4 weeks later they are like, "yeah... sure, glad we didn't drop any money on that"

    Sorry, not really directing this at anyone like I said maybe I'm the only one
    that feels this way. Maybe like they say, "I just need a new hobby"

    I am right in line with you on this issue. At this point I only buy close dated stuff I can get at GNC for 50-75 % off. Just basic protein and RTD's.

    I was considering the One but decided I just can't afford anymore supps that don't deliver.

    Sounds like over training or lack of proper diet or sleep to grow. I mean come on if your on anything or on nothing if your doing everything else right you will grow. I call BS and bad training on your part, I could be wrong but if thats the case why do you feel like your getting small/weaker if your training and everything else is good?

    It's no real news that most supplement formulations are overrated and overpriced. I think it's a fair assumption to say that a large portion of the success stories here are placebo effect. Do more in-depth research(beyond lifting forums) on various compounds and find out what really holds its worth. Try to buy in bulk if possible.

    You may also want to talk to your doc about HRT considering your age.

    I was skeptic at first but then my gains kicked in at week 2. However, they weren't much. At least not 70 bucks worth to me.

    Great advice, but even if just a placebo effect it should still help him out in the gym as well.

    sounds like a diet/training issue to me. also you prolly should look into hrt if you want to keep in great condition. Like if your natty test is already low due to your age then when u post cycle your body will just go back to its meek state

    I think your overtraining and getting burned out. I counted like 30 sets for BI's in one week. I get 8-12 in a week and 12 is the high end.

    What r u tranning for? (bulk or cut)

    When I look at ur tranning schedule I think that you are overtranning. If you are doing 3 sets of 8-10 reps on all lifts during the week that is 200 plus reps per body part in one week (unless I read something wrong). You need more time to rest and recover IMO Maybe switch up your routine a bit.

    My take is sure, a lot of them are bunk, but many just do enough to get you in a "good place" where if you take your diet serious, you can get the results.

    post workout 50gm of protien drink
    2:30 pack of tuna or salmon
    4:30, grilled chicken breast,

    I know I need to probably double/triple my protien intake, which, I'm going to work
    hard at doing.

    All the guys here that say your overtraining are probably right. From looking at your workout you'd have to eat like a horse to not be overtraining. I'd definetely switch up your workout and go from there. Might not hurt to take a few days off to rest up as well. When I change routines I always take about 4-5 days off inbetween, and when I get back in the gym Im' STRONGER. I believe there is a correlation there
    It's always good to switch your workout routine up every so often anyway.

    EDIT:: I just saw your diet. You're NOT eating enough. At all. Period. Where's the carbs at brother?? They look to be non-existent after breakfast. Take a little time off to let your body wind down and reset and recover man. Overtraining is 10x worse for you than undertraining.

    I can tell you from experience, that hitting each body part twice a week at 46 is too much unless you are on steroids to help recovery. Cut back to once a week for each body part and concentrate on diet. The extra rest will help with cns recovery and I bet you start to see gains.

    Where on the bottle of "The One" does it say that it is a food alternative, and is a magic pill?

    I personally think you are over-training, and your diet needs some help. You need to throw in some fruits and veggies, complex carbs, and healthy fats.

    Overtraining + undereating. No way at your age do you need to do each bodypart 2 a week, you def should cut back some lifting and eat more. Especially carbs and fats. And get test and gh from your doc and you will be a new man!

    have you ever had your natural levels taken blood test wise? Maybe your hormones are low? I know with my dad (50 years old) he was using stuff and not seeing much including the one and I have suggested to him to go get his hormone panels taken again to possibly start hrt.

    Okay, this is going to sounds stupid, but what do I tell the doctor.
    What is "test and gh from your doc?

    Since I'm finishing up "The One" this week, I'm suppose to take 2nd Gear afterwards,
    what else should I take if anything?

    If you know that you are probably not getting enough protein, and you are not gaining, than maybe that could be your problem? Just a thought.. Alot of us have jobs that make it hard to eat right, but we somehow do it. If you really want to, you will.

    I understand you are feeling frustrated and maybe you could give the following 4 week trial.

    Your diet is very low in calories IMO and your workout is MUCH too MUCH

    I am willing to bet you WILL see results.

    If you are taking multi vit and protein powder then continue. If not then don't start any new supplements

    Diet

    Weeks 1 and 2 eat 500 more calories per week of carbs such as oatmeal and Sweet Potatos and/or rice. Maybe not the very best but it will be fine.

    Workout

    After 1 or 2 easy warm up sets do ONLY 3 worksets of 8 reps each balls to the walls each set Rest until your breathing returns to normal for each of the following.

    Workout 3 days per week that is ALL.

    Day 1

    Chest slight incline bench
    Tricep close grip bench
    DB shoulder press

    Day 2

    OFF


    Day 3
    Back and bis
    Dead Lifts
    Lat Pull Down
    Standing Barbell curl

    Day 4 off

    Day 5
    Squats
    Leg Curls
    Standing Calf raise

    Day 6 and Day 7

    OFF

    I will bet you are 5lbs heavier AND stronger.

    wrong section to vent

    the one thing that i always can rely on is my training, my deit and my sleep\

    first of all being 46 u need more rest, u work out 5 days a week???? com on man take break, also u said u took 1t then the one?? dude u need at least dubble the time off as on to by 100% recoverd also at yer age restarting test after a cycle is going to not be as easy as a 20 year old.

    How the hell at your age do you have energy to do all that? If I was you I would go get a script from a doc for some test and gh and live the good life.

    not nearly that hard. Just get a blood panel done. Then if you are low in a spot find your doc tell him you want HRT and give him symtoms of weight loss, lethargy, etc that deal with low test if you are experiencing them.

    I think the main question here is not WHAT your doing but how are you doing it? What type of weight increases per week are you putting up on these lifts? 3x10 is a typical beginners routine; and, at the very least, you should not still be in the range of 3x10.

    When you say 3x10 do you mean that it's 225(for example) 3x10 twice a week every week? That's not going to get any increase, maybe endurance. In order to increase strength, you are going to have to add weight each week. Also, you do not need two workouts a week per body part...if you DO intend on doing that then you can not possibly gain on that...

    If your going to do that, it should be a light day, 10-12 reps, and a heavy day 3-5 reps...or something in that range; however, at 46, i cannot foresee you being able to grow or get stronger using that protocol....

    also, there is little need to have that many exercises and reps in a tri wo after chest UNLESS you are on a major cut but for strength, it's a NO GO!

    Getting STRONG comes a in a basic formula, but it can vary...

    squats, dead lifts, bench, and rows and military presses. Toss in one or two ancillary workouts and your done...lift heavy 3-6 rep range, and save the other high reps for when you start to grow, but at age 46, it's going to be hard because there is a chance that your test levels are really sub-par. If you were on gear then that would be different, but, even then, you wouldn't be able to stay on yr round...

    Last but not least, eat, you must do this. That diet is too low in most essentials...it's great if you weight 300 and trying to lose weight fast without regards to anything but losing weight.

    When i said not getting strong on that protocol, i meant the one you are using currently, and you can gain on two w/o per body part per week, but not with that training regimen and meal plan

    at that amount of volume i agree entirely, but if he possible tried a program like DC he may see gains.

    If he doesn't see results from DC, he is doing something wrong....it's so easy to grow and get stronger on DC if done properly.

    What is "test and gh from your doc?

    Since I'm finishing up "The One" this week, I'm suppose to take 2nd Gear afterwards,
    what else should I take if anything?
    Test = Testosterone
    GH = Growth Hormone

    These are hormones essential for not only growth but overall health and vitality. They decline with age so introducing it back into your body usually makes a huge positive impact. Discuss hormone replacement therapy(HRT) with your doc. You may be referred to an endocrinologist.

    I have to agree with people thinking you are over training. I was lifting on a five day split for years and was over training. I was doing legs on Tues, Chest on Wed, Back on Friday, Shoulders on Sat, and Arms on Sunday and was constantly getting weaker and feeling like ****. I lost all motivation for the gym, I still went though, so I know where you are coming from. I have reduced my weight training to 3 days a week doing the same full body routine each time and have noticed much improvement. From what you posted it sounds like you are in the same boat I was.

    As for tired of supplements that don't work. I don't know how much money I have wasted on BS supplements so I know where you are coming from. Some work, even more don't. There is no miracle drug, not even steroids. I suggest you look at your training try not kicking your ass in the gym as much.

    I so tired of dropping so much money on supplements that do nothing. Maybe it's just me, but in the last year I have tried so many things that promise huge results and I gain nothing, and I'm sure I work a lot harder than most people.
    I know my age (46)has got to be hurting my gains or (lack of) some, but, I'm just finishing up with THe ONE, and I really feel like if anything I lost size. Before that I was on the 1-T, and before that the PRIME stack. I of course did do the PCT between each.. I just get so tired of not seeing any results for my hard earned money and work. I work out 5 days a week, and I swear I'm getting smaller. My strength never changes either same now as it was 2 + years ago when I decided to get back in the gym. I get so excited and tell my workout buddies that "this is the one" this time this product will work...
    then 4 weeks later they are like, "yeah... sure, glad we didn't drop any money on that"

    Sorry, not really directing this at anyone like I said maybe I'm the only one
    that feels this way. Maybe like they say, "I just need a new hobby"

    Gear, sauce, or juice. Any of those will jump start your ass.
    It's hard to concentrate when I can hear your thoughts.

    You have to remember, you grow more when you rest.

    Many have hit it but your diet needs to be totally revamped, it is way too low of calories and what you need. You are overtraining way too much.

    In general I don't buy any new supplements until after I read a few logs and if they are in line with my goals. Stick with the basics and adjust your diet and routine, and you'll improve. Change your routine every two to three months and you'll see progress.

    The basics that always work for me include: protein (goat whey, casein, egg), BCAA (Xtend, bulk), citrulline malate, Sesamin, policosanol, calcuim, and vitamin C.
