    I need energy!


    Im on the final stages of cutting down to 10-9%. My strength hasnt dropped much so Im still training heavy. The days after my heavy squat and bench workouts Im drained the whole day. You guys have any suggestions on what I can take for energy to make it threw the last 3 weeks?

    honestly i would try a test booster like dth or t-911, that should help cuz your test will be low due to caloric deficit and both products increase energy

    do calorie cycling- raise cals on those heavy days by a few hundred calories, and lower it by a few hundred on the lighter/off days

    Spagetti the night before if you lift early or for breakfast if you lift late.

    For me ECA provided a moderate boost in energy and mental clarity. If I dosed too closely together I'd get the jitters, but otherwise it was about right for getting a lot done. Your mileage may vary.

    i usually take a cap of geranium here or there if i need an energy boost while cutting. i also find it helps a little bit with appetite suppression as well as fat loss.

    its surprising how easy it is to really clip calories hard on non workout days. take extra fiber, eat lots of greens, and mostly protein, then workout days add extra carbs + fats.

    I was considering doing that but the fat loss is going so well I didnt wanna slow it down. You think itll have a negative affect?

    It shouldn't have a great impact on your weight loss. On wo days you'll burn it off pretty quick.

    You should do what works for you. If your fat loss is satisfactory right now, you don't have to change anything. Adding some extra carbs in shouldn't be a big deal if you are lifting hard and heavy.

    Thats what I was gonna say. I haven't tried it myself, but with the great deal going on at LG (a 75 count bottle for about 15 bucks), you really can't go wrong at least trying it. The speed of when it hits you sounds amazing, and from what I've heard, one seems to be enough.
