Been awhile since I did a good log. I am in school again so I will not be posting everyday and it won't be as detailed as my usual logs being this isnt sponsered it is just my personal journey.
As you can see from the title I will be doing Jim Wendlers 531 workout. I am already halfway thorough one phase. Next week I do 531 lifts then its deload and I start over.
As far as supplements I will be taking USPlabs asteroid stack with OEP added to the mix. I have dabbled with prime before but wasn't too consistent so I had about a bottle and a half left. Naturally I will be also taking anabolic pump and powerfull and I just picked up some jack3d to add to the mix. I have taken jack3d before and wasn't really impressed so looking forward to see if this "synergy" I hear about it true and I get blown away by everything stacked together. I also will be taking some yellow gold for my lower carb meals. Basically AP will be used pre and post workout and yellowgold with breakfeast and off days as off days. Then there is my staples like whey, fish oil, flax oil and zinc before sleep.
I am already on day 3 into the stack and will post up some quick notes on the past 2 days to give everyone an idea of how I will be eating and lifting.
As always any constructive criticism or comments are always welcome. Let me just add real quick before someone ask..I don't like to eat alot of carbs and I perfer to get my carbs from fruits and veggies. I know AP works best with extra carb intake which is why I am making an exception to eat things like WMS, rice, potatoes, oats, etc.. but only around my workout. The rest of the day it is usually fruit in the AM and veggies in the PM with lean protein and healthy fat throughout.
Accoirding to the book with my prime my calories should be at 1500 for a cut and 2200 for a recomp. As for macros I was planning on going with mulletsoldiers recomendation of P-45%, C-20%, and F-35%. I work 3 days a week and am off four and of them four I lift 3 days with maybe 1 day of GPP training.
I have started a new diet recently based on paleo principles. Basically it is no millk, grains, or beans. I am making an exception for whey though and for workout days I will eat a potatoes, basmati rice, or oatmeal. The rest of the day my carbs will come from only fruits and green veggies. I have started this diet not for weight loss but really just for a healthier body. I read the paleo diet book and decided to give it a try. I have asthma, excema outbreaks, acid refulx, heartburn, and headaches regulary. I am hoping this diet will help alleviate some of these problems.
For Prime I will be utilizing the 69 protocol as suggested to me by some USPlabs reps..
For Powerfull 3 caps pre workout and 2 caps pre bed and off days just 2 caps before bed. Will be taken 6 days a week with one day off.
For OEP 1 in morning with AP and 1 pre workout.
For the Anabolic Pump I am going by mulletsoldiers write up. I would classify myself as Type I Carb Reactive. For this reason, during my first seven days of AP I will take the AP 30-45 min prior to my carb meals and the meals will contain 20-40g of carbs. After the 7 days depending on how I respond this can change 15-20min earlier and my carbs meals may go up as much as 60g carbs.
