I am very basic with how I eat the majority of the week, but I will throw in some baked goods that I bake and make throughout the week, or if I feel like cooking a sandwich, stirfry etc I will toss it into my last meal.

31 Day Update

Help building lean muscle

**** I am not eating in a surplus, nor will I be jacking up my calories weekly to “Feed the Supplement”. If that was the case nobody would ever know how well a “Supplement” works when you consistently skew nutrition. Training has been very consistent as weights have not dropped and everything is remaining steady & Matching the logbook while losing weight.**

  • Improve Strength

**** See Above**

  • Improve endurance

Endurance and recovery have been pretty steady, I have had nothing to note in regards to this on a day to day basis.

  • Aid weight loss & Body Composition

A small drop from last week, looking leaner in the mirror

Weight 169 (-.2)

  • Improve Sleep

Some users have commented on this, I am not seeing any changes. I am up at 3:30-4:30 most mornings except weekends when I am off from my new job. I actually feel better when I wakeup at 3:30-4:30 compared to a little later on the weekend. Perhaps that is my body and its generic sleeping pattern.

  • Improve Pumps & Fullness (S7 Inclusion)

Pre-Workout Combo is 1 Scoop VasoBlitz & 1 Scoop FullBlitz. Pumps have remained the same. I notice if I do high rep warm-up sets my skin and muscles have a larger hardness. Most of my rep ranges are in the 5-20 range with the main focus around 8-12 for most of John’s Training Programs (Mountain Dog).

  • Improved Nutrient Uptake (Astragin)

Digestion has been good, but then again I don’t eat too much in the first place, and very meticulous on the food sources I do consume on a day to day basis. My diet is pretty much laid out and similar M-F with minimal changes just due to work schedule. I tend to keep food sources simple and low in FODMAP to avoid any bloating, GI Distress.

Out of town this weekend working overtime for my new job (Erie Insurance), and handling new agents in Hermitage PA

Strength:

Hit 315x10 on Squat (BW which is -.4 this week)

I was able to maintain the logbook, and improve my mind-muscle connection on back movements. This is the hardest body part for me to engage because I forearm a lot of my movements. I have been trying to lock my body in, and minimize carry over to stimulate the muscle properly.

Weight:

168.8 (-.4) This week which is on a continual trend with no change in nutrition. I have really found my sweet spot over the last few months with nutrition as everything is a linear trend.

Body Recomp:

This is the best takeaway so far since running the product. I have got a lot more comments in the gym and when training on my face looking leaner, quads looking leaner, and upper body looking tighter. I can also tell as my belt notch is down, waist is tighter, and pants are looser. Every week I can see small changes in my physique, and I will have to get some pictures next time I am in town to see how the mirror is treating me as clothes are looser.

Mood/Sleep/Energy:

I have found no changes in my sleep schedule.

M-F I am up around 3:30 AM, weekends I try to sleep in around 4:30-5 AM depending on my new work schedule, or what I have going on.

Energy and Mood are very consistent. I limit my stim intake and try to get at least 4-6 hours of sleep a night which is typical for me. This is my sweet spot for the most part.

Libido:

I have found no change this entire log thus far, but it may change the deeper I get.

Overall 0 complains. If I keep getting tighter and I can maintain my strength the longer I stay in a slight deficit I am a very happy camper.

As I get deeper into AE I can tell the recomp is the best portion of the product.

I have been right around maintenance or a slight deficit for quite some time, so seeing strength gains or muscle gains is very hard to come across.

I did match the logbook the last few weeks which is great, and to get leaner in the process is a huge plus

I am not seeing anything as far as an increase in libido, or recovery goes, but that could be to my consistent nutrition and not being in a surplus or consistently adding calories on a week to week basis, which others may have seen or done in their experience.

If I can continue to tighten up these next few weeks I will be happy. I noticed my belt notch has dropped yet again, so that is yet another clear sign I am getting leaner. Back is looking a bit wider too, so I won’t complain.

Weight: 168.6 (-.2)
