Sometime before monday I'll get up weight numbers and bf% I'll try to get a tape to get some measurements

I'll try posting updated lift routines daily but for the most part I'll be running HIIT style patterned sessions. Something like this

Sprints
Super set 3x5/15
Superset 3x5/15
Super set 2x10/10
Sprints.
Repeat this cycle as long as time permits. I'll prolly stick with 2xday sessions with long distance ruck marching early in the am.

Weighed in this morning at 208 and 26 % bf. Still working on finding tape for measurements. I'll start tonight with alpha dreams then full throttle with everything tomorrow. I'm really excited about this stack

Just had my first dose of alpha dreams.

8oz water-1scoop
Mixibility was awesome. No chucks clumps or grit
Taste was great too. Sorta like a mix of pina colada and orange.

I'll have some thoughts on its effectiveness in the morning. But so far so good

So got up this morning. Took me about 10 minutes to shake off the feeling from the alpha dreams. Slept like a champion and it didnt leave me with that "hangover" like some other similar supps do. So far so good.

Just wanna put it out there that the fat burner has def helped keep me going all day without any tiredness setting in and is keeping my desire to snack in check. The pwo is a [email protected]#&ing monster too. More in depth updates when I post my sessions from the gym

Dinner
Pork loin
Carrots
Onion

For the next two weeks I'll mostly try hovering in a calorie deficit and taper up gradually the last 2 weeks of this run. I like to carb load on wed and saturday. Wed is usually my healthy carbs and saturday is usually when I have my carb cheater meals

Just a quick update this morning. One thing I think I left out 6x a week I get up and ruck march(put 50 lbs on my back and walk) for an hour and a half to start my day. Breakfast usually consists of 2 hardboiled egg whites. A packet of tuna. 8 oz fat free milk in a protein shake.

So far the supps:

Let's face it supps are never really good when u mix them and drink them. On occasion you find a protein that's awesome tasting but from my experience almost everything I've ever taken has just been tolerable. Not with these alpha lion supps. The flavors are def different than any other flavors I've seen. And these are all good. I mix everything in 6oz water so some was a little overwhelming but that's cause I'm used to wanting it gone so fast I use less water. I'm def gonna go up to 8 possibly 10 and see where it's at.

I've taken tons of different pwo over the years and have been a huge finaflex fan for a long time. I have got to say , eventhough its only day 2, theres a new king of the jungle.

The menu said cashew crusted haddock but....I'm no fish and food expert but it tasted like breaded tilapia.

Some tuna salad and kidney beans

Some cabbage/carrots

I would have agreed that it was apple until I tasted the candy applegasm jet gains. I've never had xtend to compare it to. Everyone of these supps as a very unique taste. They are all delicious though

Havent had a chance to post my leg session from yesterday but I'll get it posted asap. Really starting to feel the thermogenic effect on the fat burner throughout the day. The slightest things and I'm sweating. I'm only taking one morning dose as of now. It suggests 2x daily but I'll ease into that. My body will tell me when I need to step it up

Nice job on the workouts and good idea on easing into the thermogenic cause
if one serving is delivering then no need to jump into a 2nd dose to quickly.

Thanks man. Aside from a little joint paint , some of it's getting old lol, I'm pretty happy with my numbers as far as lbs lifted and the amount of time I am able to put In. Through out this run , since im trying to cut up some, my goal isn't gonna be to increase my numbers a whole lot. My goal is to add some sprint cycles as I go and also increase time sprinting. Also I'll try dropping my rest time between sets as I move along.

As far as the fat burner goes starting at one dose is def the best for me. One because I'm cheap and that stretches the bottle further. Secondly well it's doing what its supposed to do at 1 dose for me right now. Its helping keeping my appetite suppressed for sure and I can feel its effects throughout my day

I'm thoroughly impressed with everything. The pwo is a beast. I'm 1/2 dosing the thermo and its kicking butt all day. And let's face it no supps really taste good , from my experience, outside of the occasional protein that's delicious. Everything I have in my stack from these guys tastes phenomenal. I undoubtedly made a wise choice

This is a non sponsored log. I footed the bill and also that gives me the freedom to be 100% honest. As far as quality and effectiveness everything I'm running/logging is above my expectations. The only thing I'm less than happy with is some of the supps dont contain 30 servings. Which I feel should be kind of a given standard. But with that said I've enjoyed the stuff so much that I've already bought extras to extend my run to give it more opportunity to work for me. Also I better opportunity to share it with the forum. I wasnt gonna put that out just yet but oh well.

Tomorrow is not gonna be a gym routine like the rest of the week. I'll go for a ruck march in the morning for 2.5-3 hrs. Roll in to the gym immediately after I finish and do tons of carries/variations. With some abs thrown in. Then I'll go in the evening for some light weight full body stuff. I usually never keep track but I'll make sure I get it wrote down and logged here so anyone whose interested can check it out

So my workout went like this. I rucked for 2 hrs an 15 minutes. With 45 lbs on my back at about a 4mph pace. I dont track it but I've done enough rucking to know. I tried researching calories burned and was honestly getting a pretty broad spectrum of answers between 650-750 calories. I'm dont have a definite answer though.

As soon as I put the ruck down I hit the gym for carries and ab circuits. I'll explain in depth now. Later I'll be abbreviating it a lot.

So my first circuit I go up/back/up/back. Each leg of the circuit being 75m. For a total of 300 meters before I up the weight. The carry pattern is farmers/preachers/farmers/over head farmers

[email protected]/then 50 physio ball crunches
[email protected]/50 physio ball crunches
[email protected]/50 physio ball crunches
[email protected]/50 physio ball crunches

Then my next set I pyramid down and extend each leg to 150m. For a total of 600m before I rest.

[email protected]/50 physio ball crunches
[email protected]/50 physio ball crunches
[email protected]/50 physio ball crunches

Then I do goblet carries and over head plate carries for 150m/150m

[email protected]/35/ 50 physio ball crunches
[email protected]/35/ 50 physio ball crunches

Then I do ez bar carries. I use the ez bar cause when I try walking in the gym with a regular barbell some one always complains. I do 300m Carrie's then 20 reps with the ab wheel.

6 sets at 300m carrying 175lbs with 20 reps on the ab wheel between each carry

Today in the gym I tried to set some small obtainable goals. I succeeded with every one of them. With that said I was already going hard so today really kicked my a$$. I added one 30/60 sprint/walk circuit to each round of my sprints and I decreased my rest time on every thing from 60 to 45 seconds. Thirdly I kept all the same lifts but tried rearranging them to see if I could increase pump. Huge success. Felt like my arms were gonna pop by the time I finished. I'll get my routine posted asap after lunch

Today is 10 days in on the stack so I checked numbers again.

204lbs

25.5% bf

Down in both categories. I'll have to check my log book to see exactly how far I've dropped. So far so good. I'm extremely please with the pace of the results and overall change in my BMI.

Before I get to deep into my thoughts here I just wanna say...I'm no doctor,scientist,professional, or expert. Everything I say is STRICTLY MY OPINION BASED OFF EXPERIENCE. Some of the things I notice killing routines in the gym:

Form
Range of motion
Time under tension
Not using calculated rest times

Based on those factors I like to keep a very structured and rigid formula for my sessions. Keeping in tune with the rest of the week of 5×30/60 sprint/walk circuits and decreasing all rest time to 45 seconds rest between every set I had to drastically drop weight across the board. Still I pushed so hard I thought I was gonna vomit. Routine up shortly after lunch
