I started a new routine yesterday. It is a P/RR/S routine I found on bb.com. I read good things about P/RR/S so I thought I'd try it out. I decided to keep a log because I have never kept one before and it might help me stay on track.
Starting Weight: 150
Week 4 Weight: 157
Week 7 Weight: 148 (Was on Anabolic Pump + Recreate, I think it was a bit too much for me, plus I got sick and I think the Accutane had something to do with the weight loss, maybe liver damage? But ya I lost about 10-15lbs in a week :[ )
Week 10 Weight: 152
Experience: Off and on lifting during high school. Was interested in a lot of body weight only exercises (still am) because I was interested in going in the Navy to become a SEAL, so I would switch from lifting to calisthenics a lot.
When I did lift I did a 2 day on 1 day off split where I would do Chest/Tri then Back/Bi then have a rest day and repeat that for a couple of months.
I used to run a lot but I can't run now because I'm on Accutane (Crazy joint pains when I run). So for cardio I either go road biking, or use the bike machine/elliptical/row machine in the gym.
My main goal is to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. I don't want to get huge though, I just want to be around 170-180 @ 5'11". I mainly want to get cut and have a very defined physique.
Supplements: Before switching to this routine I was just using Whey protein. But throughout this routine I will be experimenting with different supplements to see which ones I like.
What I will be taking: (Includes Everything)
Accutane: 80mg a day (As of 11/23 I am now off accutane)
Glucosamine / MSM : 1.5G each
PowerFULL 3 times a day
Pre-workout: Jack3d. Green MAGnitude
Intra-workout: LG Sciences EAA/BCAA Kiwi-Watermelon
Post workout: Whey protein
I was also thinking about getting a multi-vitamin and some fish oil. I was thinking about placing another order with CustomCapsule for a multi-vitamin without vitamin A (can't take vitA on accutane) but I am open to suggestions if anyone has any. I also need to look at how much fish oil I need to take for it to be useful.
Diet: I will be trying to eat a low fat high protein diet. Most likely will be trying to stick to:
Breakfast: Oatmeal / Eggs
Lunch: Tuna packet
Postworkout: Large Fruit smoothie with 2 scoops of whey. (Unsweetened frozen fruit, whey, juice)
Dinner: Chicken, steak or fish with veggies.
I will be taking whey protein shakes or protein bars in between meals.
I try to drink 2 Gallons of water a day. However I think with all the supplements I'm taking I will have to boost that up considering I'm already dehydrated from Accutane.
If anyone has any suggestions to offer please share.
WEEK 4 UPDATE:
Weight: 157 (gained 7 pounds) (noticeable fat loss + muscle gain)
Almost done with my bottle of PowerFULL. Liked it a lot, got some really good sleep and had very vivid dreams. I suppose that means I was having more REM sleep which means more HGH production??? So I guess it works.
Just ordered Anabolic Pump and Recreate, so I will be running these for a month along with the regular Jack3d, Green Mag, and LG sciences BC + EAA mix. After I'm done with these I will probably go back to PowerFULL and continue to cycle them like this.
WEEK 7 UPDATE:
I dropped a lot of weight (not just fat weight) from Anabolic Pump and Recreate. I was on them for about a week and a half and that whole week I had severe diarrhea. Also felt very nauseous during my workouts. Didn't have much of an appetite and couldn't eat a lot while on this stuff which is probably the main reason for the huge weight loss. I'll probably try the products again separate from each other in a few weeks when I'm off Accutane.
