    Over 40, 1st Halo Extreme Stack Cycle. Advice & Encouragement Welcome.

    Today is my first day of the Halo Extreme Stack. Looking forward to leaning out a bit and would like feedback and advice from those experience guys and gals out there. What to expect, tweeks to training/diet, etc.

    Stats:
    43, 6', 220, 20% BF. Been lifting for about 5 years. When I started, weighed 275, out of shape sack of shit... Go to the gym 5-6 days per week, usually do 30-40 cardio and 30 min. of lifting on weekdays and lift for an hour Sat. and Sun. Basic lifts, bench, squats, lat pull, etc.

    Currently eating 2000 cal. with about 220 grams protein, 170 grams carbs, and 60 grams fat.

    Wish me luck! Will try to post updates and check back for advice.

    Thanks!

    Hi, Heavy! Have enjoyed your posts and advice on the site. Taking 2 per day (3 on Saturdays, just to us up the whole bottle in 4 weeks.) 1st cycle. Felt strong at the gym yesterday and today. Most lifts went up 5-10%, although it might have been psycological. Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

    OK, good info. Most guys find 3 caps daily to be their sweet spot on Halo so after a few weeks if you want more results that is an option but for now train hard and eat clean. You can bump your protein up a bit if you like.

    I noticed in the recommendations for Halo that you only take it for 4 weeks. You mentioned that after a few weeks, to bump up to 3 per day. Is it okay to go beyond the 4 weeks? Thanks again!

    I personally would have zero issues running Halo X for 6 weeks but IML's does not recommend that duration.

    Thanks, guys. I'll bump to 3 caps starting tomorrow. Should I up the cycle support too? So far, no sides. Feel great. Just cardio tonight, so I hope there's a game on...

    2-3 caps of ACS daily is good with good hydration.

    Did 45 min. of cardio last night, ate normally (2100 cal,) and woke up 4 lbs. heavier than yesterday. WTF?

    End of week 1:
    225 (up 5 lbs,) BF has remained unchanged. Most lifts have gone up 5% or so. Have averaged 2200 cal./day. Was looking to lean out, so not really happy with 5 lbs in body weight but I guess as none of it was fat, probably can't complain too much. Thoughts? Cut calories? Join the circus?

    Day 10: Up 10 lbs and all lifts are going up. Feeling very strong. Not sure if this is any good for cutting but would be afraid to see what would happen if I was eating more than 2200 calories.

    You will gain water weight on this PH but it will fall off fast once the cycle is over leaving nice lean body mass gains.
