Heat Miser is Transcending Agedness With USPLabs/PES and NutraPlanet

Page 4 of 10 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. I took my nephew to see that this past Friday... I laughed the whole time. Did you catch the short film before hand about the rabbit? That had my sides hurting!
    Hancock was a great movie, with a great script.
    Batman is in scope for Friday for myself and my wife. Scott Bail is the best Batman of all!

    Brian, is the Ephedrine that you're taking pure?

    I addition to the stack in my signature all else I am taking is:

    There are also your standard antioxidants such as NutraPlanets NAC and ALA as well as Multi-V, E and C, Policosanol, Niacin, Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna Bark), Fish Oil, Sesamin...and maybe a staple or two I am forgetting at this time.
    I have just added 2 caps of NutarPlanet TEA-GCG™ as of this weekend. Not yet adding the Y.

    Did you mistake the "E" as Ephedrine? It is Vitamin E and Vitamin C. Sorry. Actually I have not used Ephedrine in quite some time. It's nice to have it out of my system. When I did it was Vasopro Ephedrine HCL/25mg w/Guaifenesin/200mg.

    EDIT: I made an edit to my opening post adding that it is "Vitamin"

  3. HaHa! Sorry about that... It's easy for my mind to assume that you were refering to Ephedrine. LOL!

  5. What's Policosanol used for out of curiousity?

    I have not looked into it so pardon my ignorance in advance, but a quick search resulted in this:

    Policosanol: Popular supplement doesn't reduce cholesterol

    It's also in iSatori's stim I use on occasion which I seems a little odd.

    Exactly the opposite what the Mayo Clinic says it doesn't do

    It is part of a supplement protocol for cholesterol health, including F/O, EVOO, Arjuna, oatmeal, fiber one and exercise. Very inexpensive and I challenge the report simply based on my research and anecdotal observation and that of many others.

    Ohh-tay... nutter question.

    RYR does this as well, and I believe you were in support of a RYR-free Cycle Support... why dat?

    I was in support of cost effective RYR-Free Cycle Support. I was not in support of the cost. I have requested on numerous times a quantity price break and or a kilo size. Neither has taken place. It would make a great staple product but at that price I can do much better as far as cost effectiveness.

    NAC, ALA, Arjuna, Policosanol, F/O, EVOO, oatmeal, fiber one, maybe even some niacin and an aspirin. Much cheaper and equally if not more effective.

    I always eat at least a cup of oatmeal, a cup of fiber one, 3-4 tbsp of EVOO, 4-8g of F/O, 600mg of ALA, 800-1600mg of NAC and 3 servings of sesamin.

    I recently added the Arjuna because my research has shown me that Arjuna is very effective at lowering and stabilizing BP as well as promoting HDL and reducing LDL with hepatoxic benefits too. It may very well be much better and more cost effective that Hawthorn.

    Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna Bark)

    I have continued to use the policosanol simply because I have several bottles.

  10. ...I think I wasn't clear, lol.

    What's wrong with RYR that you'd opt for RYR-free version instead if it also helps with cholesterol? Cost?

    There are studies that suggest that RYR, though beneficial for lipids, may not be so good for the liver.

    Thanks guys.

    Yeah, it is very impressive. I don't mean it in the sense that the numbers are so great, but rather that I continue to make such progress in predicted and planned increments.

    I am not amped or wired or overly intense when I am training. But I do get into a zone and am a man on a mission. I still experience sustained endurance. The euphoria is still there. The psychotropic effect has diminished quite a bit.

    My weight is up ~6lbs. It is becoming apparent in the way my shirts fit. It's not a bicep getting larger in circumference type of size. There is compound LBM that is being put on. My upper body mass is growing. Not to mention I'm getting some decent leg work in too.

    I am a just a bit, wetter than I would want to be. I attribute that to the creatine and quite honestly maybe a lit extra BF. I am not too worried, both are transient.

    Vascularity and pump are constants.

    I'm going to hit arms in an hour or so. See you after. Thanks again.

    6lbs? How much of that (being honest) do you feel is LBM? I ask, because even if 4lbs are LBM, that is impressive gains for a natural product protocol, and within this limited timeframe.

    + been doing these but not logging them lately

    My weight gain would probably be 3lbs of LBM. My left arm is catching up quite quickly. I have put on nearly half an inch. This is primarily tricep girth. As well my left pec and lat are filling out again.

    Additionally I have been putting in some decent work on my legs. I already have rather dense thighs and my calves are actually growing ever so slightly.

    I surely have some water weight. My obliques are the first to hold water from excess carbohydrates. Even when leaner that is where the water surplus goes. Creatine only amplifies that.

    I started out at about 195-196lbs. I pegged the scale the other day at 201lbs. It was a rest day and a surplus day to boot.

    I do notice that immediately following my day one AM workout (first of my 4 day on split) I quickly begin to drop water through urination. My face looses the puffy water I tend to hold in my jowls and any water bags under my eyes dissipate quickly.

    I am challenged to refrain from an all out feast when it comes to calories and carbohydrates. I really do not want to exceed 200lbs in total body weight. I sleep better at 185-190 and ~10% but it is hard to maintain ~10% for my endomorph phenotype. I would like to achieve as lean a 200lbs as I can and then continue to recompose myself. At this point my arms are shreaded with vascularity. I actually have a few veins displayed in my calves. They are new from recent training but age may also have something to do with it. I can see blue blood vessels in my thighs and there are still a few veins that show in my abs despite the water weight.

    I gain my water and fat in my hips/lower back/love handles first. Being 5'9" - 200lbs and a short torso endo it is a challenge to maintain that stealthy "V" shape...even at my very leanest it just ain't in my genes.

  19. Yeah, during my time at 200+ I felt very consistently uncomfortable. I am slowly approaching 190 @ 8%, and my forego any further LBM gain in place of development, hardness, and shape. Rather than put on any body-straining mass, I'll simply create the illusion ala Vince Gironda.

    [IV. Reflections of Reality (Revisited)]

    Hello, Mirror - so glad to see you my friend, it's been a while
    Searching, Fearless - where do I begin to heal this wound of self-denial

    Face yourself man!
    Brace yourself and trace your hell back

    You've been blinded, living lie a one way cold existence all the while
    Now it's time to stare the problem right between the eyes you long lost child

    I wanna feel your body breaking
    Wanna feel your body breaking and shaking and left in the cold
    I want to heal your conscience making a change o fix this dying soul

    Born into this world a broken home
    Surrounded by love yet all alone
    Forced into a life that's split in two
    A mother and a father both pulling you

    Then you had to deal with loss and death
    Everybody thinking they know best
    Coping with this **** at such an age
    Can only fill a kid with pain and rage

    Family disease pumped through your blood
    Never had the chance you thought you could
    Running all the while with no escape
    Turning all that pain in to blame and hate

    Living on your own by twenty one
    Not a single care and having fun
    Consuming all the life in front of you
    Burning out the fuse and smoking the residue

    Possessive obsessions selfish childish games
    Vengeful resentments
    Passing all the blame
    Living out a life of decadence
    Acing without thought of consequence
    Spreading all your lies from coast to coast
    While spitting on the ones that matter most

    Running power mad with no control
    Fighting for the credit they once stole
    No one can ever tell you what to do
    Ruling other's lives while the can't stand the thought of you

    A living reflection seen from miles away
    A hopeless affliction having run astray

    I wanna feel your body breaking
    Wanna feel your body breaking and shaking and left in the cold
    I want to heal your conscience making a change o fix this dying soul

    Now that you can see all you have done
    It's time to take that step into the kingdom
    All your sins will only make you strong
    And help you break right through the prison wall

    [V. Release]

    Come to me my friend (Listen to me)
    I'll help this torture end (Help to set me free)
    Let your ego go (I can't carry this load)
    You can't go through this alone (I feel so hopeless and exposed)
    You'll find your peace of mind (Give me some direction)
    You can no longer hide (Break out of this isolation)
    Let humility (Openness, honesty)
    And become what you can be (A healing tranquility)

    Help me
    Save me
    Heal me
    I can't break out of this prison all alone

    These tormenting ghosts of yesterday
    Will vanish when exposed
    You can't hold onto your secrets
    They'll only send you back alone

    Your fearless admissions
    Will help expel your destructive obsessions
    With my help I know you can
    Be at one with God and man

    Hear me
    Believe me
    Take me
    I'm ready to break right through this prison wall

    Dedicated to Bill W. and all of his friends

    Comments:
    I've really just started to push it with my legs recently. I have very thick legs and am an endo. I don't need more mass in my legs but I know the nutrient partioning that follows such intense work of such a larger body mass.

    I have been eating like crap in the evening. Well not really crap but not too good and much later in the evening than I used to be able to get away with. A couple apples dipped in probably too much peanut butter. A few binges on corn tortilla chips. A couple Skinny Cows. It is not effecting me in any adverse way in body composition. I think it is actually helpful.

    I have been experimenting with sleep stacks. I am using 25mg of temazepam, 1.5-2g of PureDopa and recently have added up to 2g of phenibut. I am getting some deeper more restorative sleep. My body thanks me by growing and recovering.

    I have noticed that 4 caps of Recreate is making my forearms, wrists, elbows and knees ache. Nothing new and nothing different in my diet and training. Two doesn't do it. Three did a little and four seems to be enough to bother me. I'll see over the next three days off if it becomes more acute.

    As of this AM I am at 201lbs and fit into my (skinny pants) 34" 550 Levis as well as I did at 188-190lbs. So anecdotally...you do the math.

    I attribute a lot to the protocol. I attribute a lot to hard work and relentless self discipline and effort.

    Thanks for the support in all aspects.
