Reclamation of my Sack Stack

Reclamation of my Sack Stack
I made the mistake of getting comfortable in a relationship for the last two years. I was in the best shape of my life before it, and now am in the worst. I put on 20 pounds of fat and lost about 10 pounds of muscle. All of my lifts are at the lowest they have been in years.
Anyway, the relationship was toxic. Unfortunately this girl was abusive both verbally / physically and cheated on me. One of the things she noted was that I had put on a gut.
It's time to turn things around, to never fall into complacency again with my fitness.
I have run PH's before, but do not want to do that again.
This is what I am planning for 8x and would love some feedback:
Cardio Tu / Sat (running 3-6 miles)
Swimming a few laps each morning before breakfast.
Simple calorie restriction / high protein / moderate fat & carb.
All basics (fish oil, multi, etc)
PES Erase Pro 1/1/1/1/0/0/0/0 (at breakfast)
MAN Nolvadren XT 0/0/0/0/2/2/0/0
LG Science T-911 0/0/0/0/0/0/2/2
EBF Recompadrol 0/3/3/3/3/3/3/6
My thought is to suppress estrogen / cortisol for about 6 weeks. (The T-911 is a holdover from a past order
I also think the nutrient partitioning will help make my fat loss efforts.

I'm in to see what anyone has to say about this. I myself have gotten too comfortable in my relationship. Your story sounds identical to mine. Only I'm still with the girl. My lifts are the lowest and I feel the worst. I've also been doing a 5x5 for about 3 weeks now. It's nice to see the 'beginning gains' like I was new again at lifting. But your set up with the erase and everything looks good. I hope it works out for you man.

2 Days in:
Weight: 165 (Down 5 pounds...?? -- This really confuses me. I used to wrestle so I know all about taking accurate weight measurements, but I'm guessing there was some bloating / water retention and the Erase has been doing its thing.)
Strength: No noticeable changes here.
Libido: Increased (which, given the circumstances, kinda sucks! haha)
Sides: None. Other than much deeper sleep (is this normal?). Also, I feel extremely sore, but that is to be expected with a long off period.
Appearance: Can already see leaning out effects. Very pleased.

I'm in for the ride bro. My partner is going through the same thing as you, once we got together she stopped exercising an started eating... 3 years later were getting married and she's in full force trying to get her fitness body back again.

5 Days in
Somehow I've put on 8 pounds in 3 days? I've been monitoring my caloric intake like a fiend / exercising like a maniac. I think this must have more to do with Erase Pro and water retention levels. Why I am now 2 pounds above where I started, however, is baffling. The mirror changes are good and I guess that is all that matters.
I will be weighing myself once a week now instead of every day. Also, DOMS has stopped.
Just ordered Animal Cuts and will be taking a pak each day now.

Let me know how that animal cuts works out. I've been interested for quite some time. I know their multi's are dank

As the pain of the breakup is subsiding, the desire to get back in shape continues to grow. No movement on the scale, but everything is looking better and I just hit a PR on military press.
I won't be seeing this girl again for 8 months (we have a future conference together), but when we do meet again I believe my physique will be totally transformed.
I have some before pics, but will wait to post them until after this run is done (mid-June).

A little late but I'm subd for support brother. Goodluck and stay focused. Also, remember your doing this to better yourself and not just in spite of another. Because once that hurt/pain/drive your getting from just the breakup you're going to need to still want to improve for your own good in order to continue with your progress. I've been through where you are just within the last year (got dumped after 6 years) and it will be much more rewarding in the end if you do it for yourself and not just an ex.

As a technical question: I have found that if I take recompadrol before each meal, I am exhausted all day. I tend to eat most of my carbs at lunch, so I have started only dropping the recompadrol before lunch and dinner. Is this still a viable use of the supplement?
05-20-2013, 10:15 PM
Yea, I am also currently taking recompadrol. I don't take it post workout because I feel with breaking my fast and just finishing a workout I'm in a great environment to use insulin. But I believe recompadrol should be and is anecdotally effective in an acute dose. If it works better for u to only use with lunch and dinner then only use it at those times. Make sure your following the dosing on the bottle 1 cap low carbs 2 caps 60-100 g complex carbs. If you weren't doing that before that could possibly be underlying cause of your problems.

Here are a few of the pics I snapped before starting the cut... This is me at rock bottom.
Pretty tough for me to look at.
I essentially erased 5+ years of serious BB'ing and estimate I lost around 10 pounds of muscle and put on 20 pounds of fat. 2 years of drinking, stress, bad diet, insomnia, and almost no exercise. I don't think the breakup happened because of this, I think this happened because of the abusive relationship.
I used to run 40 miles a week, I can barely jog 1 right now.
Very ashamed of this.
I will post updated pictures in a few weeks, but like I have mentioned above, I am already seeing some results.
Also: Have been monitoring BP / pulse and everything looks kosher there.

I am down 7 pounds on the scale (not too bad for 10 days of dieting) and have calculated my average daily Macro intakes during that time:Supps: 1x Erase Pro, 3x Recompadrol, 2x Animal Cuts (all basics)Does everything look on track? I am 5'5 / 163 (and dropping...I think I want to get down to around 150 / 145 and then do a clean bulk).
Cals 1899 Fat 65 Chol 227 Carbs 185 Fiber 23 Protein 141 Sugars 41

If your 165, eat 80-90 g fat/150-180 g prot and fill the rest of your calorie alotment with carbs or whichever you choose. But make try hitting the .5 g f/lb and around 1 g protein/lb marks.

Recompadrol is not just effective for carbs. Read the writeup on the ingredients. It is beneficial for fat/pro only meals as well, hence the recommended 1 cap before meals containing pro/fat low in complex carbs that's mentioned in recommended use on the bottle.

Took some tough measurements today...I was at single digit bf % only a few years ago, but today am at the following:
Weight: 165.6 lbs.
BF %: 24.8%
Water %: 54%
Let this be a lesson. 2 years can erase years of hard work. I will be measuring bf% every Thursday now.
At the end of this cut I would like to be back into the 8% bf range. This means I need to lose 14lbs of fat.
I could see this taking a few months.

Its not really that hard, most rest stops have a little store type thing. They sell water, turkey/beef jerkey, almonds, peanuts, etc. Some even have better food like the great steak and potato company, etc where you could probably make some modifications to them and not make them too bad. Your sodium might be off the charts but just make sure your keeping up with your water intake and you should be alright.

Survived the road trip. Had a lot of whey and lean sandwiches. I did eat a small skyline chili 5 way...(had to jump on the opportunity in Ohio) but it fit into my macros. Hitting back hard tonight. I think I'll snap a few pics since there has been some progress.
Thanks for all the help bros

These are my results after 2 weeks on Animal Cuts / Erase Pro / Recompadrol / Clean diet / 3x cardio & 3x lifting.Start of Cut: (Sadly I was flexing the same...or at least trying to!)After 2 weeks:The scale hasn't moved at all, but the mirror results seem to be present. I feel like the Erase Pro is helping my fat loss be directed to my chest. Energy is sky high, and while all of my lifts are not near my PR, they are moving up very quickly. I almost feel like I was when I was juicing....almost haha.
05-26-2013, 11:46 PM
Def leaning out, love handles smaller and a lot tighter around the upped abdomen. Good work man. Things coming along nicely.

05-27-2013, 12:41 PM
Thanks guys! Yeah for 2 weeks I am very happy. Like I mentioned earlier, the scale hasn't moved really at all, which is tough to explain because I feel like there is def a difference.
I really appreciate the support, it helps keep me motivated. Too bad this had to be sparked by the breakup, but I'm looking at it as a silver lining. I do not want the abusive girl back, but I am looking forward to seeing her someday in the future when I am shredded.
