I started a new job 4 months ago. I work in a small office (trailer, actually) tied to computer and phone all day. The ONLY reasons I have to get stand up are to pee, adjust the heater, or pick up something off the printer. Its a good job but that much sitting packed 15 pounds on me fast. Suddenly- I weigh 290lbs (all time high) and my pants are not fitting well. This sucks.
So minor changes first.
Training- 5 days a week, more cardio (LISS and HIIT). Basics-
Mon- chest and back, heavy
Tues- legs, light weight (real light) and higher reps
Weds- shoulders (heavy) and arms
Fri- chest and back (lighter) and deadlifts and traps
Sat- shoudlers, light
Diet- again, small changes. Lets assume my diet is horrible, so small changes should help to start. I'll be eliminating fried foods, soda and energy drinks, and limiting sweets. Adding in a few extra protein shakes between meals.
NOT counting calories or even estimating macros.
If things don't start moving in the right direction, I'll move to limit carbs.
Supps- now the fun stuff.
X-Factor Advanced is the centerpoint. I used my own money to get RIPPED and bought the 200ct bottle. I'll use my own "V-rob dosing" with a twist, borrowing a trick from Tim. More on that later. This will be my 3rd or 4th time using ArA, so of course everything else is built around XFA.
AI LCLT, 2-3g with XFA.
AppNut Neovar, taken with carbs post WO. Its a good creatine and should help with the carb spike after training
CL Golden Gains- I got in their sale a few weeks ago and have SIX tubs of this. It will be my postWO product for a long while, lol.
SANN Dr. Feelgood. I'm in a bad mood most of the time; I really hope this helps.
Fat burner/stimms- I have the beta version of Cellucor Super HD. Been using it about a week so I have the dosing down.
I have a sample-baggie of ErgoGenix new fatburner ErgoShred. I'll get into it soon.
PreWO- I have a plethora of pinata to choose from.
Various vitamins- Gut Health, C and D, Purus Labs Organ Shield, and green tea.. If I dry out I'll add CL fish oil and Labrada Elastijoint.
I scored 2 bottles of Genomyx DCP off the trade thread. I will probably add those a bit down the road.
The ultimate goal is to look a LOT better by the Olympia Expo in like, 212 days. So its a long term diet for sure. Not sure how long this thread will run; at least the end of the XFA cycle, probably 60-75 days.
Cliffs: I'm too big. Gonna fix that. Might get stronger at the same time. XFA gonna help.
(Initial post, not too fancy. I hurried a bit to get this posted as I started the stack today. I certainly missed important details, so update will happen.)
