Hey guys, long time lurker, first time poster. I have been following this site for a good bit of time and really appreciate all of the FREE info posted every single day, not to mention the Physique Clinic. I love my Biotest supps and am always excited new trends in the diet, lifting, supplement industry.
So, here is my plan from the end of Spring Break (Third week in March) to the end of August. At the beginning of the school year I was 175 at 9-10% bf. As of now, I am 213 with 14-16% bf. For comparisons, I was 217 at 25% bf at this time last year. My goal at the end of August is to be at 4-6% bodyfat. If my calculations are correct, I have about 32 pounds of fat and 181 lb of LBM. Here are some stats that could be helpful
D1 College Athlete
4 years (on and off) training, since last year very serious
Bench: 265 x 1
Front Squat: 300 x 1
Deadlift: 365 x 1
35 inch waist
bodyfat mostly distributed in obliques and lower stomach
I have told my cousin, who is an amateur BB and finished 5th in his first competition this year, that I would do my first show with him next year. I want to get into “contest shape” per se without competing this year.
Going from 25% bf to 9% let me know that I respond best to a higher fat, lower carb approach. Thus,
For the first 6 weeks, I will carb cycle (low, med, high days). The next 6 will be T-dawg 2.0. Following the 12 weeks, I will take one week at maintenance (good idea?) and finish with JB’s GSD (which I have done before to get from 13% to 9%) for the last 6-7 weeks.
The basics: Surge, BCAA, Beta-7, Creatine, Power Drive, Metabolic Drive, Metabolic Drive Complete?, WP fraction and hydrostylate, Flameout
I want to use HRX for the GSD so I have been researching alternative methods to aide in fat loss for the first 12 weeks
Forskolin (perhaps Carbolin 19)
ECGG (is there any truth to a high dose negatively affecting T or Igf-1?)
Anything I could add/subtract to make this stack more potent? Most everything has been suggested by writers and I have been working on efficient doses for each.
Training: from what I have read, it seems like as long as you bust your ass doing complex lifts, results will come. We have mandatory lifting for my team 3x week which consists of front squats, db bench, pull-ups, push ups, and others. I plan on starting out with an 8-12 rep range for the first 6 weeks, followed by 12-20 the next 6, followed by either 10x3 or complexes while on the GSD. I absolutely love the pain of hard training, and like when I played high school football, I leave everything I have in the gym.
So there it is. Any comments/criticism would be GREATLY appreciated. What worked for you guys when trying to get super lean/ prepping for a contest? Anything I am missing here, or info you feel would be pertinent to know? Thanks a lot and long live T-Mag!
Oh, and I cant forget my morning NEPA walks with a weighted vest!
