Much Needed 90 Days
Hello, I have been on and off reading the forums. I used to have a passion for training and getting leaner but lately I have been busy with work and eating dozens of Krispy Kremes or buffets here in Japan. All I have passion for is food these days. I eat when I am stressed and depressed. I have reached an all time low and am in need to get back to shape. I think the final straw was that I couldnt breath when tying my shoelaces. I made a journal and calander. I will pull a numer each day so I can have a daily reminder. I was on vacation in Hawaii and I met Adam Hanes of USPLabs I am grateful for his help and advice I now need to follow it. I will be at the same time logging some USP Products to see how far it can take me. I hope to get back to shape really soon. This is just a personal log for myself, I bought the USP Labs supplements with my own money and this will be an unsponsored log. Products, AP, Powerful, Prime, and OxyElite pro.
Here are the embarrasing before pictures.

Brah you still looking LARGE AND IN CHARGE!!
Nice on the USPLabs stuff. I am interested in their new C20. You should see if they'd be willing to let you do some transformation log with it!
Would be nuts!
And we lifting this weekend! Make sure you can come out!RecoverBro ELITE

Thanks warsteiner, mattrag! I am gonna do this. 2nd day into conditioning was pretty diffcult. Only 88 more days to go!
I had to rush through a lunch time 45 minute chest shoulder workout.
I ended the day eating about 1600 calories. I will start to do a detaled diet log I just need to get on it. What are some of your thoughts on casein at night for dieting. Should I be fasting for GH release or is it ok?
Flat Bench Press
225 x 5
255 x5 3 sets
Flat dumbell press 110db x 5 4 set
Dumbell shoulder press 80lb db x 5 3 sets
3 sets at 110lbs..
Super quick 45 minute workout and job to and from school ( about a 10 minute) leisurely jog.

If you are taking Powerfull just before bed then you will need to steer clear of carbs for about 60 mins before and after. A small amount of carbs (<10 grams) should be ok. Proteins and fats are ok with Powerfull, it's just the carbs you need to be careful with.
The first few days are going to be hard work getting back into the training but by the end of week 2 you should find it easier and should also start to notice some body changes with the diet/training.

Thanks a bunch... I am giving my body about a week to get used to being on a diet. I have always kinda been in the weight room but I need to get consistent with nutrition and good strength programming. Thanks for all the help and the support from you and everyone else on this site. In a week Ill add the powerful , prime, ap, yok3d ..

A good thing to do is clear your house of all the cheat stuff... lol
I wish there was fat free cream cheese here so we could make the Layne Norton cheese cake... sigh...
Good job though, first 2 days DONE.

Should be fun.
After that Im starting a 5 day routine buddy. Hoping the mass amount of adaptogens Im taking (Cheap stuff though, ashawanda and liver supps), can help me from OT'ing and burning out b4 I start the goods.
11-15-2011, 07:39 PM
No doubt in my mind matt! haha. and thanks bro! im here for you too just not in person haha. I know how it is. I hate being not motivated and not having my lifting partner anymore... I might have a new one here though who will push me if he will get his *** in the gym.

Man thanks for posting but the form is quite horrible and I need a better belt for next week.. Also I'm gonna squat first next week since I need to rotate the lifts cause each one will suffer .. My squat is not so pretty not even quarters hahaha.Originally Posted by mattrag
11-21-2011, 06:57 AM
Yea. I just did a squat routine now. Up to doubles with 275. That's the heaviest I can go now. Must still be blasted from Saturday. Man. You strong bro. Squats again today....Originally Posted by Manko Oyaji

Good on ya mate for getting back into lifting! I'll be subbed to see how it works out for you.
11-21-2011, 04:36 PM
FYI... I will never go for heavier reps than 315Lbs on dead-lifts ever again, unless I am able to get that weight for more than 15 reps, just not worth the injury and the unnecessary strain/stress to my joints, ligaments, & tendonds!
