Did my 30 min of inclined walking 1 hr before my lifting session as normal now for my Mon, wed lifts. Was super warm in the base gym sweating like crazy!!

Trained hamstrings, calves today. Despite compounding lack of sleep (not due to the stack i didn't sleep well before starting) I felt very energetic in the gym today! UP on RDL 295x8 probably had 1-2 left in the tank but my legs were a bit beat from the walking beforehand. i dont think it totaly killed my workout though as this is a new weight and reps for me ever! Kept the weight the same for all other lifts from previous workout and added reps for each! Felt like on of my best lifting sessions yet! I will say that I still feel really dang good after lifting, almost like i could do it all over again!

**on a side note I felt pretty drained later on in the night and was the first time ive been in bed and asleep before 10p.m. in quite a while!

Food for today

It seems like your averaging around 1900 calories a day. That's where I'm at. I'm doing Keto and IF a few days a week. Considering this stack but was worried the low carb and calories would hinder the effects. Seems to be working out for you though.

I'm not sure how well it would do with keto but really only one way to find out... I don't eat my first meal till 930 a.m. and was doing a dose of 2 vector 1 follidrone on an empty stomach after waking and never felt bad but I see that some people have some issues with it and no or low carbs.... I've said it before but I can't wait to get this again on a bulk and get back to my normal eating of 400+ carbs a day! Put it to the ultimate test lol

Have been taking Vector for almost 2 weeks now while keto and no issues. Have 2 more days left of Ep1logue and then I will be adding in FD 2.0 as well. Also have a log going here. Most days I am taking 3 caps of Vector in the morning and not eating til much later in the day without issue.

I hear you. I'm hovering just above 10% bf. Trying to get back to 7 for the summer. Sounds like this would work for a cut or bulk. Love trying to new stacks. This one sounds like fun.

Preach.

Also, you've seen sasquatch riding a unicorn too? I thought I was the only one... Was eating ice cream, and had a bunch of native girls throwing little pickles at him?

As strange as it is, I feel like my strength increases more on cut rather than a bulk. Not sure if it is diet related or cause there is more emphasis on my core on a cut. On full on Keto, I just feel like I can lift anything. Could also be I'm just in that "feel good " zone on keto. Sometimes on a bulk I feel sluggish from the carbs and just takes a toll on performance.

Must be nice. I'm exactly the opposite. When I cut carbs I'm not worth a crap.

Oh it didn't happen over night, brother. First started Leto about a year ago. First few months were brutal. To depend on carbs for working out ( Been lifting for over a decade now) and just transition for fat as fuel was a grind and took awhile to get used to. Really does pay off though. I just have a higher level of well being on keto. Especially during an IF.

Still feeling great on this stack. I have noticed that the random pumps are not as noticeable as they were at the very beginning but overall energy and mood is still enhanced. My motivation and drive are at an all-time high as I continue to see the leanness taking place while maintaining a a lot of my hard earned muscle. The definition is getting better and better.

Lifted arms today and didn’t want to stop… Just kept going until I realized I should probably stop. Did not improve any on my close grip bench today but did not regress either so I mark that as a win considering that I am cutting.

Woke up sub 148 today. 147.8 Which is almost a pound since my last weigh-in. I think that keeping my fat a bit lower is helping with the leanness.
Lifted back again, second time this week was just feeling necessary. Did some different lifts than my normal back day to really work on the detailing. Endurance is still high in the gym…. Keep pushing the limits and feeling great!

Cals 1976

271P 224C 33F

Still 147.8

7 April 18

Had drill this weekend so little off but not terrible. Did some prt and circuits this a.m. and lifted shoulders later at night. Eating was sporadic but was still able to get my cals in.

Lifted much later than usual and was feeling a bit tired but livened right up once I took my last dose and hit the weights. Maintained same weight reps on o.h. press. Improved on reps for all accessory lifts afterwards and added in a few more.

8 April 18
fasted cardio in the a.m.

Lifted legs today deadlifts. Decided to drop the weight and start working my way back up again. Did 315 for a set of 10. Felt really good. Feel like I could have upped my max weight if I went that route, kinda regret not.

Cals 1910

228P 164C 38F

147.6 weight today.

Playing a little catch-up here work has been busy this week so haven’t gotten a chance to post.
First things I will note is that my weight has continued to drop now I was 146.6 This Morning 11 April 18.
Secondly I have noticed a dip in my strength which I was expecting to come at one point or another.

9 April 2018

Today my carb intake before lifting was light. I grabbed the wrong food prep containers and was approximately 60 grams short on carbs before my workout session. I am certain this did not help with my strength during the workout. Was only able to squeeze out 245X3 today just seemed kind of off all day. All other lifts were actually up by a rep or two. Another possibility would be the long weekend and not really getting a chance to recharge? We will see how this continues.

Cals 2149

260P 176C 45F

10 April 18

Grabbed the right containers today. Day was off to a good start. Ate well but work was a little mentally exhausting. Was glad to be in the gym and lift back. Bent rowed 245x 6 and then 2 more after setting it down. Once again all following lifts were very well except for bent db row at the end I was pretty gassed. Most Recent was 100lbs x17 was struggling to get 8 this time.

Cals 1962

250P 172C 30.5F

I have an event this weekend that will be a little heavier on the fatty side so I will use that night to get my fat intake back up for the week and see what that does for me. 8 weeks 2 days remain as of today 11 April

Feeling better today, got some good sleep and the fatigue from the weekend/work is wearing off now. Did shoulders and got 135x12 on my OH Presses. that is a 4 rep improvement from my start. All other lifts the reps and weight increased on. Added extra weight/ reps for front raises, upright rows, and db delt flys, the rest stayed the same or slight increases. Had my cardio previous to my lifting session and today was the first time I just had no interest in starting it... But i did it and felt a lot better after i got going. added 15 min on the bike later in the evening on top of it as a little added punishment lol.

Cals 1907

229P 187C 27F fat was extremly low today which might have affected my drive for the cardio?

Feeling much better today energy levels have come back! Woke up early and got 15 min in on the bike before headed to work. Trained legs tonight which is usually reserved for Sunday but had a friend come in so we did legs. Squatted 255x 12 which is up in weight and reps from my start and my previous squatting session. Still going to try and get another quad dominant leg session in on Sunday as they could use more work... I have an apparent difficult time getting them to grow. I think ive broke through the funk i was in earlier this week as I am feeling much more focused again.

Cals for today 1892

I don’t know if it’s the difference of how I am taking the dosage compared to the start of this run or not but I feel that the leaning effect really started to take effect around that same time as I reflect upon my discoveries. Once again feeling a bit leaner today. Also endurance during my inclined cardio seems to be improving as well.

Lifted back today… shoulder was feeling better today. Last back session I had a wild hair to jump 30 lbs on my bent row from my starting weight, followed suit again today and added one more rep which is pretty wild to me. Previous week 275x8 today 275x9.
Followed with 30 min walking 15 percent incline 3.5mph- as stated earlier this doesn’t suck nearly as bad as before.


took this this morning!
Dont jave any pics to compare it to shouldve took pre pics

OMG I thought this thread had gotten deleted!! I had a school pop up about a month ago for a while and I wasnt able to keep up with logging while i was there. When I got back I was not able to find the thread anywhere.... If anyone cares I will be updating it again as this is peak week!... I have been off of vector for about a month now and still running follidrone 2.0.

My biggest claim for Vector is that about a week after dropping it out is that my strength crashed hard core, I had about a week where things were just rough when it came to lifting. my ferocity and intensity required a lot of mental drive to maintain. It did level out a bit bit my strenght has not recovered nearly to the point of vector.

Just start this back up. I will follow. sometimes life just happens brother!
I noticed that with Vector as well. Don't realize what you have going until you stop using it. That is why I had to get a few more tubs and start back up.

This is just a testament to how well Vector works. It slowly builds and you dont realize how large of a contribution it has until its gone ;)

little update on the show this weekend starting with the day before hand.

Friday morning things were looking really good decided to run carbs between 300 and 350, played it safe and cut them out at 315. protein 195, fat was 29.

Saturday morning before the show i was really happy with my look. Had a pancake with peanut butter, protein shake with honey and maple syrup. debut bb was my first class I made sure to get in approximatly 300 grams of carbs before I took the stage, as well as a 1/4 tsp salt right before walking out on stage.

Took 4 out of 4 in debut my size just didnt compare to the others.

after debut was over I began pumping in more carbs and sodium, to get as full as I could for the open class that i had coming up next. (there was about 2 hrs between the classes.) I was in LW Open which was 156 and below. I was probably pushing 140lbs maybe a little more. Tooke 4th out of 6th in open lightweights. Overall I had a wonderful experience and am very excited to do this again. I intend to take a year off and add some good clean mass for my return.

Awesome job brother. This may be the start of something special. At Least you got up there and I'm sure you learned a few things.
Pack on some Mass! that is the fun part.
