So I’ve been at this “healthy living” thing for 13 weeks now. Week 14 is a picture week and I’m a bit pissed at the last of visual progress since week 10. I started with heavy cardio workouts in the beginning 6 weeks, switched to heavy lifting (granted by machine. I’m slowly making the transition to free weights) from week 7 to present with a 10 minute cardio warmup.
The lifting I’m doing is usually in sets of two exercises with no appreciable rest in between. (For example I’ll use two machines, bicep curl and tricep extension, and hop back and forth after each set of 10 without resting. Keeps the heart rate up and from what I’ve heard turns the weight lifting session into a bit of a cardio routine).
Anyway, my knowledge level has gone way up and things are going good, except for the whole slowing progress thing. So I’ve been looking at the V-Diet which I want to do for 4 weeks. My problem is this. I’m in Edmonton, AB Canada and nobody sells HOT-ROX here. We’ve got GNC and Popeyes for suppliments. So I’d be ok on Metabolic Drive and Surge.
Any recommendations for comparable products would be much appreciated (PMs are fine, I know at least one manufacturer doesn’t wish to be named here) or whether the V-Diet would be effective even without a thermogenic.
