    Alphamine crushes my appetite, probably moreso than any other stimmed OTC fat burner out there

    If you have SS forskolin, I'd recommend taking 1 cap with each of your daily alphamine doses. a/b-adrenergic receptors operate via cAMP-dependent mechanisms, which would be amplified by forskolin use, since the latter increases adenyl cyclase activity

    I used to use Forskolin for most of my cuts when Nutraplanet had it. Plus i think its pretty hard to find a Forskolin product priced as well as Synthetic Supplements has theirs right now.

    Day 3:Back and Bi's
    Weight: 224

    Naturally, the weight is not falling off quickly. but its going down slowly and that fine. i can already see dramatic effects in leaning out. actually is very surprising. wish i would have had skin fold or something done for a baseline. either, way i can visually notice a difference. i have leaned out before with only Erase. but im assuming the Alphamine has helped a ton.
    Energy is not overwhelming to me but im pretty stim tolerant. i actually might want to mix my PWO in again before the gym so i can gain some of the aggression or intensity again. Aphamine is not really ment to be a PWO anyway is it??? i can say it has helped with endurance in the gym for sure tho.
    Last night was a bum workout. i forgot my dang headphones.....still worked through it, but i wasn't able to zone in and really crush weights.

    This morning i started taking the 2 scoops of Alphamine in the morning with erase and DAA. my creatine loading is over so ill be only taking one scoop of that before my workouts with another scoop of Alphamine and 1 cap Erase.

    is it ok to mix a preworkout with Alphamine before the gym???

    Thanks for the help and for following!

    Forgot to add that my appetite has been mildly suppressed by the 2 scoops a day. i would not say it is crushed or anyhting. we will see what 3 scoops brings.

    If your pre-workout is stim free then you can otherwise I would avoid adding another stim to it.

    Check PM I am about to send you some Carb Cycling links.

    You can mix a preworkout without stimulants with it. I would opt for 1000mgs of Agmatine preworkout with Alphamine: http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/s...-capsules.html

    Day 5: Chest and Tris

    I am noticing some mass loss and what seems to be strength as well? this is not what i was expecting at all. i have been eating about 600 cal less than normal because i am wanting to shed some fat. however with doing that my protein intake has dropped a little. i was over 1.5 g per pound. now im under 1 g per pound. im getting around 200 g and i weigh around 223. i have been on this "diet" for about 3 weeks and am really noticing some mass loss. and it sucks. any recommendations??
    on a good note the energy levels of Alphamine are still good. i can still say my appetite is not as high as it was prior to Alphamine. have not noticed any real loss on the scale tho. any advice? or should it take a little longer than 5 days to see results? i do look leaner than i did due to what seems like water weight.
    i really need to find a way to gain some of my mass/strength back. its playing with my head a little bit i think. i was in complete sissy mode in the gym last night. struggled to bench 315 for a set of 4 when i was able to get 330+ for a set of 8. do you guys think its the lack of protein or the fact that im eating less calories?

    As far as nutritional advice I always raise Protein when in a deficit as opposed to lowering it (I lower the other macronutrients instead). Did you jump straight into a 600 calorie deficit and what are your amounts of carbohydrates and fats? I prefer to start slow and decrease more only when necessary to avoid certain negative circumstances (such as strength loss, etc).

    If the scale hasn't moved then it may be in your head. The mental side of cutting is what usually wrecks most people as they believe they are weaker or smaller and this devastates their psyche and hurts workouts. If it has only been a week with your cut then maybe it is just a bad workout or you may need to make some adjustments in diet and/or training.

    yes, i jumped straight into a 600 cal deficit. carbs average around 240 g and fats around 100g. what should they be? this is an average over about 3 weeks...

    My training has been with higher volume, but i throw in a heavy lift or 2 each day. for instance, on chest day i might do heavy DB press and high volume BB bench,flys,incline,etc....

    i have lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks btw, is that to slow or to fast?

    There are a lot of different approaches to weight loss from a manipulation of macronutrient intake so it is hard to just give a blanket suggestion. Personally I set my protein intake at 1.5g per lb or higher on a cut then alter fat and carbs from there depending on several factors. My first suggestion would be probably to add some protein back in to at the very minimum hit 1g per lb of bodyweight and therefore lessen the caloric deficit some.

    You could possibly be working with too much volume during a cut. In general due to the decrease in calories recovery is going to be hampered while losing weight so volume typically should decrease as opposed to doing more. I believe in hitting things with a relative high intensity (as in higher weight, % of 1rm) as opposed to increasing reps on a cut. I find this best to minimize strength and muscle loss on a deficit.

    6lbs over 3 weeks isn't necessarily too fast, but this depends on your body fat levels. I wouldn't aim for over 2lbs a week at the start unless you are already pretty lean.

    okay, so i will set my protein back to where it was at around 310 g or so. i dropped because i was looking for some calories to cut out.
    are you suggesting that i change my workout sets/reps? i guess i thought that when you were wanting to cut a little you needed to decrease the weight and increase the reps. am i wrong? so would you recommend something like a 5x5? thats a happy medium in my opinion.

    and i am not what i would call lean by any means. i think the 2 lbs a week is pretty reasonable.

    how much cardio should i do roughly? i know there is a fine line there when you want to keep strength and mass loss to a minimum.

    I have always believed in low reps, heavy weights with less overall volume during a cut. Heavier weights are better for building or even maintaining strength depending on how severe the calorie restrictions are.

    I just started my cut, I have been doing slightly above maintenace on my four training days, and below on my three off days. I go moderate carbs on training days and minimal on off days, with a little extra carbs on squat day, my last training day of the week.

    what would you call "moderate" carbs?

    Well I am a lot smaller than you. I go for about 300 on workout days, with about 50 on rest days. Its working for me so far. I also am using IF, and trying to eat a lot of my carbs in my first meal, with them tapering off after that.

    I am not really trying to lose weight so much as recomp. I do have some fat on my midsection, so I probably will end up a little lighter at the end, but thats fine.
