    What do you guys think? pros...cons,,,,tips....trips.. ..bring on the knowledge boys...

    Diet: High protien, moderate healthy fat, complex carbs only at breakfast, pre and post workout...havent had a chance to figure out exact numbers yet...but was thinking something cyclical to help trim bodyfat and maximize muscle growth...higher carb and total calories on workout days....low carb and lower calories on off days...

    Supplements: have a couple questions here for you pros...but first ill tell you what i def. want to base my stack around....
    Exceed by DS pre workout
    Replenish by DS post workout
    BCAA mega dose through out the day....20 grams?
    NO limits by DS

    no for some possible additions...this is where you guys can chime right in...

    should i add a fat burner or will that be counter productive with the NO?

    will a supp like bulk powerfull be beneficial in an effort to trim bodyfat add lean muscle, or the appearance there of?

    any thoughts on adding posidion, leviathan, anabolic pump, havoc? what effect would these addional supps add in my efforts to attain the ideal beach body? would they work synnergistly with the afformentioned products or work against them...

    Summary: So again...i am trying to attain the most visually pleasing body that i can...weight and bf percentage dont mean as much as appearance to me right now(vain i know)...any thoughs on trianing, diet and supplementation will be greatly appreciated...u guys seem to know everything...

    Thanks for the input in advance

    Right on bro.

    I did this workout last summer. It is a solid workout, but not geared towards weight loss.

    I would add Poseidon, and you might want to look into RPM.

    That is a good plan. A little too complicated for me, but really good. You use about the same number of sets I do, and use a similar philosophy on rep schemes. Probably because you are very aware of the various parts of the muscle cell and what stimulates them. I never go to 100 reps though, I usually go to around 20-30 reps for 3 slow, continuous tension sets to stimulate the mitochondria and capillaries. Whatever works. You know what works for you, anyway, so you don't need any help with that.

    My question is, what about your cardio? How often, how long, high intensity or low intensity activities? To me, this is the most important thing for your waist unless you are a complete diet nazi with psycho genetics.

    I think this is a good plan. I would recommend RPM, as mentioned before. You will like it.

    I would take Poseidon + BCAA's first thing in the morning, pre & peri workout, and before bed.

    AP 15 minutes before breakfast, pre-wo meal, and 15 minutes before you take your Replenish post-wo.

    Leviathan first thing in the morning & pre-workout, unless you workout too late and affects your sleep.

    I haven't taken NO Limits or Xceed, but I believe DS recommends 30-45 pre-wo.

    The 100 rep sets come from CT's HSS-100 program

    100-Rep Set

    The final exercise of the workout is a "flushing" set of 100 repetitions. Ideally you'd complete the 100 reps without any rest, but at first, while you build up your work capacity, it's okay to take a few 3-5 second pauses during the set.

    The purpose of this set isn't to stimulate hypertrophy directly, but rather to enhance recovery from the previous workload. The very high rep/low intensity set will increase muscle flushing which will help bring blood and nutrients to the muscle group as well as the tendons.

    It'll also help get rid of the metabolic wastes accumulated during the workout. Plus, systematic use of very high rep sets can increase muscle capillary density (more blood vessels going to the muscles) which will further enhance recovery capacity as well as work capacity.

    There will still be a minimal hypertrophy effect from such sets, mostly in the slow-twitch muscle fibers. While athletes don't want that, bodybuilders who are only interested in size will accept any added hypertrophy they can get!

    I understand the concept. It is almost the same thing. I was more interested in the way he was performing the set.

    Wait, wait. Trust me bro, those words READ far more aggressively than they would have been spoken. I was not trying to be sassy.

    It was more of a matter of fact tone than a "uh duh" kind of thing. I am not claiming authority on any topic. Sorry to come off that way.

    I would pick HIIT too. I just prefer it, it makes sense to me. You definitely have a good plan in my opinion, you know what you're doing.
