I'm 23. I've been training for almost a year and a half. I follow an upper/lower split that takes a few principals from westside training. Currently bulking. Diet isn't super clean, at this point I'm just trying to put on weight.
I've watched my numbers go up over the last couple months, but I've been fighting with fatigue in the gym, and I'm really hoping that Amino-X can make a difference. I guess the reduced cardio along with extra weight has really taken away from my conditioning.
I weight train 4 days a week. And will be doing cardio 1-2 days per week depending on recovery.
I've tried a few BCAAs before and here is what I'm looking for:
Tolerable taste. Doesn't have to be fantastic, but I wanna drink it without any trouble.
Decent Mixability. In my experience, BCAAs do not mix up. At all. So If i can find one that mixes and doesn't clump up, I'm going to be extremely happy.
Noticeable difference. Not one of BSN's priciest supplements, but I still want to see a difference in my training before I put money out to purchase in the future.
Really excited about this log, and I hope people follow along. Willing to accept constructive criticism on my routine, or anything else about my training.
Eye candy for following:
Couple current goals, that I feel like I can achieve in the next month while logging:
205 Bench (I know my bench is weak)
Add a decent amount to my deads. Just started them a couple weeks ago, so I've got lots of room for progress.
Hit 165 pounds.
