New guy - Stack criticism wanted!
I'm fairly new to the scene of bodybuilding, although not new to cardio fitness.
I'm currently doing HIIT and a 'stronglifts' routine (alternating each day).
For maximum benefit, I am using the following:
BCAA Whey Protein
I am also looking to add into this:
Are these all compatible with each other?
I am initially looking to shed the fat (3 months ago I was 16stone - 6ft1"; now i'm 13stone10) to reveal my modest physique underneath which I may then begin to build up. I've definitely reached a plateau where I cannot seem to shake the chest/stomach fat and 'love handles', despite everywhere else getting very toned.
Thanks for any tips and criticisms!

I think the Alpha T-2 and Erase would work very well with one another. The HIIT is the way to go, but your diet will be the most important factor in determining your success. What is your diet like? How many cals per day? Carbs?
Erase is supposed to help with cortisol, though there is still somewhat of a debate about that I guess you could say. Chances are you will enjoy Erase though, it gets amazing reviews here. However, for strict fat burning purposes you could look into a cortisol controller along with Alpha T2 like Lean Xtreme or something like that.
There's plenty out there to mess around with and make a good decision.

It's good to hear that my provisional purchases haven't been in vain!
It's good to read about the actual effects each chemical/enzyme has, instead of just a bit of text on the back of the bottle, what those words actually correspond to.
My diet used to be abysmal - pizza, KFC, McDonalds most days, but 3 months ago I just totally changed. As I said, I was 16stone, but it never looked like 16stone of fat like some guys do.
Nowadays, I will typically use the Whey Protein shake as meal replacement; plenty of mineral water, fruit, beans on toast and once per week a treat to knock the metabolism a bit (such as a Chinese meal, or a pizza), always after a hard HIIT.
As for HIIT, i'm doing a modest 15mins on exercise bike with the following format:
1min warmup (50RPM)
1min of high resistance, fast as I can (100RPM)
2min slow speed (70RPM)
30sec high resistance fast (90RPM)
1min slow speed (70RPM)
[repeat last two until end of 15mins]
I will also combine this with 50 good-form ab crunches and around 30 press ups.
Sometimes I will do Circuit-training exercises instead of the bike too (squat thrusts, high knees etc).
On my weight training days, I am doing the following:
3sets of 7rep of bench press (45kg);
3sets of 10rep shoulder press (45kg);
2sets of 7rep Upright row (45kg);
3sets of 10rep bent-over row (45kg);
Also using high tension resistance bands to work on tricep extension (over-arm)
Will be looking to incorporate deadlift and squat into my routine shortly.

I'm 3 days from starting my second cycle of Creatine; and will look to start the Alpha-T2 'tolerance' run probably on Sunday, and commence the full stack, all being well, on Monday.
I have one minor concern - my Alpha-T2 bottle, ordered from bodyactive-online (I can't link yet due to post count), has a spelling mistake on the label - Raulwolscine - a minor thing (with the 'L' added), but just wanted to check if other bottles had the same - the bottle seal was a little tampered with too. Unfortunately I took it off to check the contents and didn't think to take a photo.

I recommend taking Lean Xtreme post usage of AT2 to get the thyroid production running strong.
doing my own thang!

No worries then - I'll commence the tolerance test of the stack today!
If tolerant, I'll start a log!
