PREPARING FOR THE FINAL STRETCH
I have 3 months until the end of the year. That?s 3 months to get to 6% bodyfat. I refuse to take any questionable drugs. I’m determined to do this 100% natural. I need your help to come up with the winning game plan.
Coming upon nearly 10 weeks of my workout and 12 weeks of my diet, I’m feeling good and looking good, but those hallowed abdominal divisions still elude me. I think I need to step up my nutritional supplement game, and also change up my workout.
The goal is to achieve an athletic, male model/greek god build, not heavyweight bodybuilder.
Let me know what you think.
CURRENT FITNESS ACTIVITY
? Slow carb diet (Bean, proteins, healthy fats)
? 2 Full body, high weight, super slow (5 counts up, 5 down), low rep , circuit training days (lifting)
? 2 HIIT swimming days
? Vitamins every morning (sometimes some flax oil capsules)
? Recently started drinking green tea at work
? Protein/Creatine shake after each weight workout
MY TENTATIVE PLAN
Monday October 6
Keep workout the same, but add in the following supplements to increase insulin sensitivity (as suggested by Tim Ferris).
200mcg chromium polynicotinate ?ChromeMate?
500mg of slow-release niacin ?Slo-Niacin?
23mg of policosanol (Nature?s Life brand)
Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) supplement (SUGGESTIONS APPRECIATED):
? Flameout by Biotest
? o3mega by Genuine Health
? Udo Choice (I was previously told that this was the best there is, but now I?m told fishoil is king?)
? Is flax oil important if I?m taking others?
? Should I supplement on days that I?m going to be eating fish?
Monday, October 20 or 27 (depending on effectiveness of previous supplements)
Add following supplements for better recovery and metabolism
? BCAA (SUGGESTION NEEDED)
-Scivation Xtend or
-Optimum Nutrition BCAA
-What’s a good one?
November 3/10 until end of year
Switch to higher rep, more explosive workout.
Some considerations (SUGGESTION NEEDED):
? Brad Pitt fightclub workout: www.bodybuilding.com/fun/bullman2.htm
? Interval Strength Training work out (a la Pavel Tsatsoulin, Mike Mahler, etc.)
? Make me a recommendation, Cletus! I need to get ripped without losing volume (im 5’7, ~150lbs).
