Forumites: T-Rev here, who rarely posts, but lurks often. Wanted to share a little success story with TC’s 2+2=7 article (T-Mag 248) & crow a bit. The times were propitious, so I bought my first bottle of MAG-10, brought out an unopened container of Surge & set to work doing what the article said. I followed the given workouts (except I never did the pullups; after the barbell rowing, there was nothing left to do pullups with). I rarely met the 402 tempos, but I always lifted slowly, with strict control & form. As for diet, I got in an average of 2165 calories a day, very isocaloric. I managed about 200 g of protein per day. I took MAG-10 once a day, one serving of Surge during & post-workout, & supplemented with creatine & a multivitamin. I missed the very last workout & my diet suffered a couple of days due to a sinus infection.
The results: an overall gain of 6 lbs, 5 of them LBM (%BF by caliper remained the same). I gained a half inch on each arm & my chest. I gained a full inch on each thigh. (BTW, I’m 42 & have been lifting for 2 1/2 years.) Kudos to T-Mag!
