    Beard could use a trim. (AMA 2014 Transformation)






    Warning: Shitty pics lie ahead.

    STATS
    25 years
    5'9"
    205.4 lbs
    23.8% bf (according to my Omron)
    Recreationally trained since high school, basically back into the game with a goal as of now, although I've been hitting the gym irregularly the last six months or so.

    In case you couldn't imagine, this is gonna be a cut.

    TRAINING
    Power Hypertrophy Adaptive Training (PHAT routine by Layne Norton http://www.simplyshredded.com/mega-f...ated-2011.html )
    He's whatever (awesome physique, tho) but its a fairly good routine that hits all muscle groups twice a week and includes some heavy days and some volume days. I will not be using the exact exercises in the routine but I'm gonna follow the basic format. I have a very active job and am gonna include roughly 20 mins of LISS cardio every workout after lifting til it gets consistently nice enough to run outside here, then probably do 3 20-30 minute runs a week.

    PHAT overview
    Day 1: Upper Body Power
    Day 2: Lower Body Power
    Day 3: Rest
    Day 4: Back and Shoulders Hypertrophy
    Day 5: Lower Body Hypertrophy
    Day 6: Chest and Arms Hypertrophy
    Day 7: Rest

    DIET
    Under review and construction

    DRUGS
    125 mg E3D AMA's test E
    60 mcg CEM T3 ED in one dose at night
    12.5 mg AMA aromasin ED in one dose at night (chasing some gyno)
    50 mg MJR raloxifene ED split in two doses (see above)

    Here's the promised shitty pictures. Sorry for the crappy lighting and taking it in a dressing room. I don't have a full length mirror at home.

    PERSONAL BACKGROUND
    I am a full time student. I went back to school last year to pursue a doctorate in ecology/conservation biology, although at this point I am at a two year institution working on my pre-reqs for transfer to a four year institution. I'm actually working on my transfer application tonight. I'm taking Ochem, Calc and doing independent research as well in addition to volunteering at a couple places a week and working 35-40 hours a week. I don't have much fun haha.

    I went in for a few tests early this year due to extreme lethargy and depression. I did some blood tests, suspecting low testosterone, and several tests confirmed my suspicions. I was somewhere in the realm of 300 ng/dL, although I'll upload my bloods at a later time. I tried to do an HPTA restart using nolva and clomid for about a month but that didn't get me anywhere. I talked to my GP, and we did discuss an SSRI, which I declined, and he declined my request to look into TRT even after I showed him some private bloods and he ran some bloods himself. Enter AMA. 125mg E3D of test e and I'm more vigorous, have an easier time in class, actually want to have sex again. Basically changed my life. So here I am. Let's do this damn thing.

    Thanks HI! I'm super fucking inspired by you and the rest of the gang. There are a ton of killer physiques and I'm pumped to be back at it. If you ever have any critiques or advice please feel free.

    Thanks Jaws! I'm shooting for about 10% bodyfat, which translates to roughly 30lbs. A long road but worth it!

    That is a serious Taliban beard you've got going there.

    Good luck to you.


    AMA's got a great group together for this challenge.

    4/2 (2 min RI's)
    Squat 225x5x5x5
    Seated leg press 285x10 330x7x
    SLDL 185x6x6x5
    Ham curls ss 160x10x12x10x11x10
    Calf press ss 375x12 390x12x12x12x10
    Leg extensions ss 190x13 (machine doesn't go any heavier? Wtf) x12x13

    I am nursing injuries to my mid back and knee. They weren't severe, but they were enough to still be slowing me down. Felt like a good workout overall.

    Anybody ever do the insanity shit? Need to incorporate some cardio and want to involve the lady.

    Rest day today. Ate too much yesterday. Helped my friend move some stuff into his new place after the gym so he bought me a feast from a local barbecue joint. Then I brought my little brother to a Brazilian steakhouse for his birthday.

    Upped my t3 to 75 mcg. Was reading about some people dosing it in the AM, but I feel like it gives me killer lethargy when I do.

    It definitely was not meant as an insult. I checked back tonight because, after thinking about it, I hoped it was taken in fun (as it was meant).

    I, too, am liking the diversity of the group. I wish there were some women taking part in the challenge though.

    Maybe a second set of testicles?

    I might be on a secret prototype developed by AMA. True alpha male. Also no offense taken in any way shape or form

    I'm into it.

    Sipping some bulletproof coffee w/protein powder in it while I do some more Ochem studying. Got tomorrow off so I can cram some more. Gonna hit my back/shoulders volume tonight and chest arms tomorrow, then cram in a legs volume on monday night after work.

    Did my first quad pin today. This is a big deal for me, I've spent my whole life HORRIFIED of needles so to pin myself took a lot. I'm fucking sweaty now though haha. Gonna have to z-track next time since I leaked a bit of oil. precious gaaaainzzzz

    Shoulders/Back Hypertrophy day
    4/5
    Db press (8-10)
    55x7x5 50x5
    Upright rows (12-15)
    80x15x12x11
    Cable lat raises (15-20)
    20x20x15x15
    Bb rows (speed 60sec ri)
    115x7x7x7x7x7
    (2 min ri)
    Pull down (8-12)
    165x10x8x5

    60x16 70x12x12
    High cable row (15-20)
    75x16x16x15

    felt fucking gassed and flat today. I'm not thriving on these lower carbs. I'm probably gonna shift to a 40/30/30 pro/carb/fat ratio here, just keeping the protein higher because of the t3. This is of course calories, not grams.

    Jesus fuck this week.

    Ochem midterm monday. Gonna have to retake the lecture portion of that one. Calc midterm fucking tomorrow. Oh well. Picked up some caber from MJR for a future tren cycle (down the line) and puked my guts out the other night after taking .5mg. Lovely. Pinned left quad for the first time and holy shit that's a spicy pip-ball. And I have to do legs today.



    Ain't nothing to it but to do it though, right?
