Mullet - Im surprised you didn't add in PowerFull to the stack
I could have. Maybe I will!
Quite the opposite, because of three primary factors; one, the lack of classical stimulants which increase cardiac output and effectively raise blood pressure; two, because of ReCreate's potent anti-oxidative capacity; and, three, ReCreate's selective cortisone:cortisol enzymatic conversion inhibition. Especially in the latter most respect, as cortisol raises blood pressure significantly, and also has an adverse effect on cholesterol levels.
i train mon,tues,thurs, fri
can i use a 40/30/30 for them
while a 45/25/30 for off days?
does that sound reasonable...?
There is some truth to this. As a matter of fact, some insulin-mimetics have been shown to demonstrate a type of "memory effect", meaning that, after discontinuation of the use of those insulin-mimetics, the body continues to partition nutrients as efficiently as when the mimetics were in use. It is not clear, though, how long this memory effect lasts. Certainly very short-term and dependent on individual metabolic factors. The beauty of supplements such as Anabolic Pump or P-Slin, however, as we all know, is that they work independently of insulin, and so may be taken long-term.Originally Posted by EasyEJL;

Yeah, I was not meaning to sound accusational or combative, I was just very curious as I don't recall getting the cortisol:BP/lipid connection before now.

Abstract—The effects of excess cortisol secretion on blood pressure and fat deposition are well documented, but the importance of this glucocorticoid in controlling these processes in normal individuals is less clear. We studied the relationship between cortisol excretion rate (tetrahydrocortisol [THF]+allo-THF+tetrahydrocortisone [THE]) and a range of important cardiovascular risk factors in 439 normal subjects (238 male) sampled from the North of Glasgow (Scotland) population. There were marked gender differences: female subjects were lighter and had lower blood pressures and cortisol levels, whereas HDL cholesterol was higher. The pattern of cortisol metabolism was also different; the index of 11ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity (THF+allo-THF/THE) was lower and that of 5-reductase (allo-THF/THF) was higher. There was a strong correlation of blood pressure (positive), cholesterol (positive), and HDL cholesterol (negative in women, positive in men) with age. Cortisol excretion rate did not correlate with blood pressure but correlated strongly with parameters of body habitus (body mass index and waist and hip measurements [positive]) and HDL cholesterol (negative). With multiple regression analysis, there remained a significant association of cortisol excretion rate with HDL cholesterol in men and women and with body mass index in men. These results suggest that glucocorticoids regulate key components of cardiovascular risk.
Curious. How does this look for around my workout using Powerfull, Recreate, P-Slin and AP?
AM - Wake:
0:00 - 2 Powerfull
0:15 - 1 P-Slin, 1 SuperCissus, 2 Recreate
0:30 - Pre W/O shake (oats/wms/BCAA/mono/BA/Luecine)
0:45-1:00 - W/O
Last Set - 1 AP
0:15 - Post W/O shake (repeat above)
B you work out in 15 minutes? Are you superhuman?
The workout begins at 0:45 to 1:00 after mark 0:00 (powerfull dose).
So I’ve done my research and instead of cluttering Mullet’s PM box decided to post my question here. I’m a carb II reactive female, 5’7’’, 123lb, ~14%BF on a mission “impossible” : lean bulk .... I bet nobody guessed that one! . My choice of weapons (other than the obvious- hard core training, proper diet etc) are PowerFULL, AP & Recreate .
This is how I planned the supplementation:
1. 30min b4 morning cardio: 1PowerFULL +2Recreate
2. Immediately b4 cardio: 1AP (cardio 20-30min, HIT)
3. Breakfast: includes complex & simple carbs
4. 20-30min b4 third meal/pre-training meal: 1AP
Meal includes complex carbs
5. 10min b4 workout (approx 1hr after third meal):
glutamine+ 1/2serv Nimbus Swell
6. Workout drink:
5g BCAA+5g glutamine+ 1/2serv Nimbus Swell
7. Immediately PWO & 30min b4 PWO meal: 1AP
PWO meal: includes complex & simple carbs
Basically I wanted to make sure PowerFULL and Recreate are separated at least an hour from meals. With AP I am planning to start off with 30-40g of carbs per meal and ramp it up according to response. Training would be 5days on/2 off. On non training days Powerful would be omitted, I would still dose Recreate 2 in the morning/1 in the afternoon and AP with first 3 meals containing carbs. Generally I follow a high protein/high fat/low carb diet due to poor handling of carbs (poor means: excess carbs=saddlebags & saggy butt : ). Think that is the main reason why I’m finding it hard to gain more muscle. With this stack I’m hoping to overcome this problem.
Did I do my homework right ? Any comments, suggestions would be much appreciated
Thanks Dexterium, I wouldn’t argue with someone who’s got a perfect six pack You’re right, to take simple carbs after the morning cardio defeats the purpose of fat loss. I might just have a small amount after the weight training session in form of low-sugar fruit (grapefruit, berries or apples). That shouldn’t do too much damage, besides, grapefruit is a cheaper source of niaringin than Ap. Nut. Drive
I'll be posting updates as soon as I start the stack
just avoid bananas, the grapefruit, berries or apples should be ok. the berries probably best so you get some extra antioxidant power out of them (blueberries in particular). Fructose is different tho both in terms of its glut4 interaction and its storage (it hits liver glycogen first and primarily rather than bodily) so you may want to also include some other complex carb source.
