    AMA 2014 Transformation Log~heavyiron

    Stats

    230 lbs
    Mid forties
    About 6'1"





    I have been dieting and hammering away for the last 3-4 months. I rejoined a gym in December 2013 and completely changed my look but now I want to take things to the next level. Accountability and discussion is always good for me when trying to reach my goals so I decided to start a log.

    Goal-
    to get shredded.

    Since I just came off a cut I went up on my macro's and reduced my cardio to give myself a bit of a break from the monotony of dieting and training. I will resume the cut around the 1st of April after I get labs and see what the damage is from this latest blast. My labs last week had various elevations that look a bit troubling so I'm repeating labs without training as muscle breakdown from weight training skews liver and kidney markers. I had trained legs the night before the labs and that likely contributed to out of whack markers.

    Split
    is a 4 day setup

    Sunday-OFF
    Monday-Legs
    Tuesday-OFF
    Wednesday- Arms
    Thursday-OFF
    Friday-Back
    Saturday-Chest and shoulders

    Cardio
    3 times per week for 30 minutes. I'll add more cardio soon.

    Diet
    is a carb cycle. Training days are higher, non training is lower, Saturday is a load, cheat is Wednesday night. My "meals" are a bit unusual at times as you will see.

    Drugs

    Testosterone, fill the pin a few times per week and pin. sometimes more, sometimes less. I probably average around a gram or so per week but some weeks might be 300 mg and others 2 grams. Adex or Nolva almost daily. Not much else at the moment except the occasional Xanax at night or maybe some Cialis. I'm not real consistent with my meds. I fine tune this the last few weeks of a cut but since you can cut on almost any steroid I just keep it simple until it needs to be complicated.This last week was 300 mg Test E. I stopped drinking a few days ago and quit the benzo's. I feel mortal at these T levels.

    I went low carb today after yesterdays carb load. The load yesterday actually started Friday night. I consumed a whopping 1,400 carbs from Friday night to Saturday night. I was pretty full at the end of the night.

    Today's Dinner below

    Lean beef and cabbage with hummus and diet green tea.


    I'm looking forward to logging with you guys and thanks to AMA for hosting this challenge!

    Last meal of the day was 1 scoop IML Complete protein, 1 tbsp extra crunchy peanut butter and two small squares of very dark chocolate.

    Dark Chocolate twice daily may reduce Myostatin levels

    That's a very interesting article. I'm curious to see more testing done and when a supp company will capitalize on it. Gives me another excuse to indulge myself in some dark chocolate.

    Cocoa has so many health benefits its amazing. When I saw that article I was surprised it may reduce Myostatin though. Anyway, I use Cocoa almost nightly in one form or another.

    CONCLUSIONS

    There is now a large body of information that supports the idea that cocoa flavanols and procyanidins have the ability to act as in vivo antioxidants. These nutrients have been shown to affect numerous intracellular signaling cascades and to influence the cardiovascular system by enhancing vascular function and decreasing platelet reactivity. Several in vivo studies have provided strong support for the hypothesis that the consumption of flavanol-rich foods, such as certain cocoas and chocolates, may be associated with reduced risk for vascular disease. Significantly, in vitro studies with highly purified flavanols and procyanidins support the hypothesis that many of the biological effects observed with flavonoid-rich foods can be directly attributed to the flavonoids. A number of important questions remain, however. For example, there is little information on the extent to which flavonoids interact with other nutrients in the diet before and after absorption. There is also limited information on the intracellular metabolism of these compounds and on the bioactivity of the different metabolites. Another area in which we have a dearth of information concerns the acute and chronic effects of dietary flavonoids. Although several short-term clinical trials have been reported, the health effects of these nutrients will best be determined from long-term, randomized, clinical trials.

    Ordered 7 lbs of protein powder tonight. I was reading s2h's log at Rx muscle and saw he used Javapro so I picked up a couple packs and also a few tubs of designer protein. I always loved their natural flavor protein for my oats.

    Another low carb day. This makes 3 days in a row of very low carbs. No training as I have to get labs Thursday morning and muscle breakdown will skew the liver and kidney results. Basically the diet is driving everything at the moment. Test levels are plummeting so I hit some HCG today. Can't wait to get my blood draw so I can crush the weights.
