ReCreate Your Lean Bulk! Nice Protocol Inside!!
ReCreate has been getting due press lately, obviously, as a potent free-radical scavenging, thyroid modulating, FFA liberating and cortisol inhibiting anti-lipogenic. However, to this point, not much mention has been given to combining ReCreate with primarily myotropic agents to minimize adipose gain while maximizing anabolic response.
In response, I put together this 'little diddy' to address customers who want to employ this approach:
The “Lean Bulk” Stack
This stack features Anabolic Pump, and USP Labs’ new ground-breaking entry into weight management technology - ReCreate - in a stack designed to minimize fat gain while promoting myotropic response.
What does each product bring to the table?
As stated, this stack is designed to be used in a slight calorie surplus, for those who like to gain muscle, but not at the expense of prominent adipose gain. As such, both of these products have been chosen for their ability to inhibit lipogenesis (accumulation of adipose cells), promote lipolysis (the breakdown of adipose to be used as fuel), and promote an anabolic response in the body.
Anabolic Pump is a product designed with a very straight forward approach - to increase intramuscular glycogen storage, and decimate fat. It achieves this primarily through two mechanisms; one, by increasing the translocation (movement) of GLUT4 (an isoform responsible for glucose transport) in myocytes (muscle cells); two, by inhibiting the proliferation (multiplication and increase) of PPAR-Gamma2 (a lipid binding protein found in adipose cells).
..Whoa, whoa, whoa! Slow down skip, you lost me. Can you break that down easier?..
Sorry! Simply put, Anabolic Pump increases the amount of glycogen (muscle fuel) that your muscle cells can accept. This increases your body’s ability to repair muscle cells in response to exercise, as well as providing your body more fuel during training. It does this all the while preventing your body from accumulating more fat cells, and actually increases the amount of FFAs (free floating fatty acids) available for use in the bloodstream. Basically, it allows you to more efficiently used increased nutrients while creating an environment conducive for fat loss.
ReCreate stands to be the most effective product on the market in terms of converting stored adipose for fuel, increasing the metabolic pathways of lipolysis, and preventing lipid hypertrophy. It achieves this by several mechanisms, mainly regulation of the thyroid, increased thermogenic (heat inducing) response, beta/alpha adrenergic (adrenaline) receptor agonism, and the liberation of fatty-acids into the bloodstream. Without bogging you down with too much technical jargon, ReCreate turns your stored adipose into fuel, and prevents your body from storing further fat to a great degree. Coupled with Anabolic Pump’s glucose storing and lipolysis properties, this is a lean bulker’s dream!
What kind of diet should I use this stack with?
The dietary portion of this stack is as important as the product’s themselves, and really determines the results received. In order to minimize fat gain, while still receiving gains in musculature, this stack should be used in a moderate calorie surplus (approximately 500 calories), that balances a macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate, fat) profile; in other words, it should be used while eating 500 calories above what your body ‘needs’, with protein, carbohydrate, and fats, taking up 45, 20, and 35 percent of your diet, approximately. Personally, I use this particular macronutrient breakdown to begin dieting, and reverse the trend over time as fat-loss accelerates.
How should I dose the Lean Bulk stack?
For best results, dosing should be as follows:
15 minutes prior to breakfast:
15 minutes prior to pre-training meal (or 3rd meal on non-workout days):
15 minutes prior to training:
15 minutes prior to the last meal of the day containing carbohydrates:

Recreate set a sales record at Nutraplanet and then broke its own sales record and continues to perform and the folks at NP have never seen a product move so well....
Not sure why I posted it here, but I'm terribly excited to be responsible for the great formula.
O and Mullet is gay.

First day I got all 3 bottles from the IC release (and knowing I wouldn't need them all to cut down) LBM gain was the first thing that jumped into my head. June 1 or June 15th I will be jumping in (along with P-Slin and Powerfull). Should be a legit lbm gaining stack.
Thanks for the insights Mullet.

20% carbs in a bulk - really? Even with AP to help with allocating carbs to muscle?
I mean, I am well acquainted with the clean bulk, and have discovered first hand that, for me at least, going over about 40% carbs when bulking is disastrous. But still, 20% surprised me. Wouldn't changing that macronutrient ratio a bit provide better results?
Not trying to second guess you, just curious.
05-01-2008, 07:08 PM
If you'll notice, I said to reverse the proportions of carbohydrates to fat over time as fat loss accelerates. I use this method to 'ramp up' one's metabolism, so to speak, and use this newly thermogenic metabolism to acclimate myself/a trainee/whoever to higher levels of carbohydrates. Rather than risk initial adipose storage, it is far better to literally increase one's metabolism and at that point take advantage of it. The use of AP and ReCreate would only greatly expedite this process.

I only fell for the supplements in the van thing a few times. All the other times I figured out was I was in for and went anyway. I guess I am addicted to Mullet. Funny; the cravings for Mullet have been drastically reduced since starting ReCreate.

A pre-workout carb containing meal, with a balanced macronutrient profile.

Right now I am finding the sweet spot for me with AP and carb intake. I work out early AM and don't have a meal but rather BCAA/BA/Leucine/Mono/WMS.
+15-20mins: pre workout drink
+15-20mins: 5-10 mins cardio warm up - workout
Last set: AP
10-15 mins LI cardio
repeat pre workout drink
+30-45 mins: whey/oats
+120 mins: AP
+15-20 mins: whole food complex carb, protein
Putting on lbm at a good pace and staying lean. I am looking forward to adding ReCreate to this protocol. If it allows me to eat more pre/post I would be thrilled. If not I have no problem letting it shread me up in the mean time.
Thanks Mullet for the practical application outline. Confirms or affirms what I am finding success with...but you and I planned this success in advance
05-02-2008, 01:38 PM
Definitely B, I thought you may like a more practical application and reasoning.
I've found that Anabolic Pump and P-Slin deliver both chronic and acute effects; meaning immediate results, as well as the ability to deliver more carbohydrates with less adipose gain over time.

You can also rearrange your profile on the continuum, while still keeping approximately the same calorie level - that is, if you find yourself gaining fat, revert your carbohydrates and fats back to their original level. You will still be in a surplus, but may lean out without risking muscle loss.

whats up with the avatars...soccer, resolve. Isn't OCC the original.
Not trying to be a **** really. I was planning a reply and I was thinking I was talking to OCC and then realize I was not...then realized it again with the second

I'm planning on lean bulking over winter this year and will be including AP and Recreate throughout.

I have juts got to say...one more time...AP is completely changing the way I respond to and utilize carbs.
I am 6 weeks into a lean bulk (I've got some pulsing strategies with carbs and other things) of my own using AP and I am up 5-6lbs with virtually no fat to show for it.
I keep thinking that this cannot be happening the way it is yet it is.
I advise anyone who uses AP to give it at least a bottle worth and experiment with your carb count in a weekly progressive ramping (meaning only up them weekly) until your find just enough to stave off hypo.
I can say that I am sold on what this can do for you and your body's previous conditioning to carbohydrates.
I know I am sucking up! But it is well worth my time. Thanks USPLabs...you are transforming my body at the cellular level.

I also agree that when first beginning use of AP it has a dramatic effect (I know from my personal use during a non lifting rehab period with it.)
Another addicted soul (I feel guilty when I eat carbs without it now ~ its a bloody disorder I tell you!)
