My free bottle of Osta-Rx just came in the mail this evening and I'll be starting it tomorrow. I'll be keeping this log and updating it several times a week; always on lifting days, but also to keep you all updated on how it's affecting me on Cardio days and off-days.
I'm 35 years old and currently weigh 178 lbs. I've been lifting here at home with my own weight set, for a little over a year. I started out at 245 lbs. I'm still trying to shave off this clingy belly fat, so I'm still eating to cut. I'm trying to flatten out my belly, so I can get started on my first bulking cycle and I'm hoping the Osta will make it a little easier.
I lift on Wednesday (Legs and Shoulders), Friday (Back and Biceps), and Sunday (Chest and Triceps). I do cardio Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: usually just the eliptical, but sometimes jogging/sprinting intervals.
I take a multi-vitamin, plus a host of other stuff (Glutamine, BCAA's, Chromium, L-carnitine, Fish Oil) and I've been taking Bronk-Aid with caffeine in the mornings to aid the weight loss, plus I drink Green and Oolong Tea daily.
I usually consume between 1700 and 2000 calories daily: 200+ grams protein, 100-150 grams carbs (30+ grams dietary fiber), 45-60 grams Fat.
I start my morning with half a scoop of protein powder and I use a protein powder, with skim milk and glucose pre and peri workout. I use Craze for pre-workout energy.
Doc, this is a fantastic start to a log! I've seen your other log and I know that you are very committed to keeping it updated. Osta will be very happy you volunteered for this!
I'm excited for you. Good luck!
I've taken my first day of the Osta-Rx: 3 pills: one in the morning, one at lunch and one at dinner. Of course this is my day off and I have no idea how long it will take to have a noticeable effect, so I have nothing to report today. Tomorrow is Chest and Triceps. While I doubt the Osta will be working by then, I'll be sure to report any changes in my workout.
I posted the details of today's workout in my other log. Only had one day of the Osta, so we can't really tell what kind of effect it will have yet, but the workout went pretty well. I did chest first and it went very well, with improvement on nearly everything. Triceps were a mixed bag, that evened out to the same as last week, but I think all the progress on chest, left me with a little less strength for triceps. I did get a damn good chest pump too. Not sure if the Osta is edging into my system or it was just a good day. I'll keep everyone apprised though.
The tricep pic didn't really come out very well, but it had a decent pump going too.
Well, the Osta must be starting to work it's way into my system, because I'm having reduced muscle soreness. Usually my pecs are aching bad come Tuesday morning, but I had a great workout Sunday and I'm only tender. This was always the first sign with the Halo Extreme. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.
