    Contest Prep w/ Cellucor! Super HD/BCAA/C4/N03/Creat

    Hello, I'm 14 weeks out from my first bbing contest and I'll be logging the following Cellucor products:



    I would first like to thank Gerge and Mike for letting me log these products and hooking me up w/ the goods.

    The serving size for each product varies, so I'll either finish one and keep going w/ the remainder...or add in an alternate substitute so the log is more equal, if that makes sense. For example, C4 has 30 servings while Creat and Super HD have around 50. So I'll substitute C4 w/ craze.

    I have a 4 day split and will be hitting each muscle group 2x a week. Here is some bad news..I have 2 herniated discs so I will not be able to do any lower back/body work for 6-8 months according to my doc. According to my mri, my back looks like a 50 year old's. So I will not do any leg work.

    Here is my split:
    Sunday - Rest
    Monday - Rest
    Tuesday - Chest and 40 minutes of Cardio
    Wednesday - Back and 40 minutes of Cardio
    Thursday - Arms/Shoulders/Traps and 40 minutes of Cardio
    Friday - Rest (maybe a lil bit of cardio ~40-60minutes)
    Saturday - Full Upper Body Power Day and 40-50 minutes of Cardio

    Started off at 203lbs but cut down to 184lbs.
    My goal weight is to be ~160lbs at 3-4% bf and keep as much strength as possible

    My diet is starting to get very strict and each week, my macro count will change. Random side note, I'll have Isoflex in a few days b/c I'm starting to drink alot of shakes and my stomachs getting pretty uncomfortable. So I invested in an isolate protein.

    I have already tried 1 cap of Super HD prior to this log b/c I was so tempted haha. I must say, I didn't sweat as much as I expected. I've been sweating alot since I gained so much weight during my bulk, but not much sweat. Well when I was working out I was sweating alot.

    Also tried C4 today and it tasted pretty good. Wasn't focusing much on the taste b/c I went to the gym at 10pm and wanted to get things done and sleep. Focus was great, pumps were ok, but I was doing low reps and heavy weight. Endurance was not too good during my cardio session, but it was great during my workout.

    I tried 1 serving of the BCAA's today as well and it mixed alright. Had to stir for a while...but it tastes great. Tastes like legitimate lemonade. Not a sour/tangy guy, but it was enjoyable.

    Well I gotta go to sleep guys, I'll update this log again tomorrow!

    I forgot to mention that Super HD didn't give me a ton of energy, but it was clean. I usually take a nap after class, but I didn't last time I used it. Took 1 cap today as well and I'm not sweating like crazy nor am I dizzy/feeling odd.

    Thanks!

    Took another capsule of HD and didn't sweat at all! damn, I was expecting to be sweating like crazy but nope! feelsgoodman. Good clean energy and just feels good. Of course I am tired 6am in the morning, but not as much. Very clean!

    BCAA's taste pretty good, and I am not a citric flav guy. Not bad at all, enjoyable actually. Mixes pretty well. I'll be using aminox after I finish the tub and see how the two compare.

    I have also noticed that I am slightly more vascular. I haven't seen veins in 2 years...srs. 2 years of bulking haha. Can't wait to try N03 w/ C4 on Tuesday. Side note, my legs are getting more cut and I'm starting to feel hamstring splits and seeing some decent looking cuts on my quads...however my legs have atrophied quite a bit especially b/c I haven't been able to hit them w/ heavy squats/presses/etc.

    Day One



    Hit Chest today along w/ cardio. I made this day 1 for convenience. I will update this log w/ updates regularly, but most likely not on a daily basis due to repetitive outcomes. Well that is just my assumption.

    Warm Up:
    Light Pushing Exercises

    Working Sets:
    Hammer Strength Decline Press
    140x20
    180x15
    230x15
    270x9
    270x7
    290x9

    Decline Cable Flies (on this machine, there is no #lb, just numbers 1-20)
    4x15
    5x15
    6x13
    6x12

    Incline Cable Flies
    6x12
    6x13
    6x15

    Pec Dec
    60x12
    75x15
    80x10
    80x10

    Cardio...burnt 280 calories


    Was not a great workout, but ok. I was in a bad mood before my workout went a little late after I took C4/N03.
    So far, I must say C4 and Creat mix very well together. Taste isn't phenomenal, but it's up there. Very enjoyable.
    Also used the bcaa product when I was training and it was very refreshing and pleasing to drink. Thought it wasn't as good when I took the first serving, but today I must've used the perfect amount of water. It reminded me of starburts, lemon flavor. Pumps were above average, but nothing mind blowing. Hope tomorrow is a better workout!

    Pumps were pretty damn awesome today. I also forgot to mention yesterday that during my cardio session, I was more energized and was not as fatigued. Today however, was slightly more tiring..but most likely because I had a pretty intense back session. My lats felt nice and full of blood and my rear delts/traps felt great as well. Energy wise, not so good. But I'm cutting, so that is bound to happen. I used to be avle to do 195's for close grip pulldowns, but now I can barely hang on w/ 180lbs...same w/ all my lifts. feels pretty bad man..

    Pumps were mediocre and my head was a bit dizzy...Not much endurance/strength. Not much anything to be honest...I guess C4 isn't really compatible w/ me...Nothing really to say here. Pretty disappointed w/ my DB press because I was able to hit 110's for 5 after 5 sets of heavy bench pressing just a few weeks ago.

    Thanks, appreciate it! Such a bummer I missed todays workout...
    I feel a little better, but I'm trying to play it safe right now so I don't escalate my fever. Most likely, I'll be able to lift tomorrow. My chest is a major lagging part imo, so I think for tomorrow, I'll hit chest instead of back. May do back in the end if I have time.

    Surprisingly, my legs haven't turned to twigs ...but they have atrophied quite a bit..

    Following along and interested to see how things work out without being able to train legs. I see you are still able to do cardio. What about HIIT? Is that an option with your back issues?

    Thanks! Yeah, I do HIIT. But I do some low intensity cardio as well to take a little breather and for rest. Whenever I look at myself in the mirror, my legs looks like they're lagging; however, in pics...they look pretty good. My insurance is taking forever...it's getting pretty ridiculous how slow it is, but hopefully I'll be able to see a physical therapist and start working legs.

    Well today was alright. Anyone know this feel...right before a workout you get all nervous and anxious b/c you know you're going to have to go all out...and you simply cannot accept failure? I only got this feeling right before a heavy squat/deadlift day, but I'm starting to get them every time I do DB/BB Bench. Probably b/c they're my only free weight compound movement, but felt pretty good to have this feeling again . However I was pretty disappointed w/ my db bench...was expecting to rep 110's for maybe 8. Still a decent workout. I'm guessing everything goes a little downhill during precontest?

    Pumps were nice and had several people mire.

    hope Slovation doesn't mind...but holy **** I'm mirin so hard right now

    Was such a long ass workout...I just felt like doing a little bit more volume then usual and decided to hit back b/c I missed it the other day. Pumps were pretty good; however, I gassed out way to quick. I'm starting to lose my enthusiasm and motivation when I lift. Kind of lukewarm because I'm so tired...slept at 1am yesterday and woke up at 5am today.

    But in the end...it'll be worth all the effort.

    Day Six



    Lawd I was so tired today...Still am
    Today was supposed to be fuller upper power, but instead I just hit chest due to my routine getting messed up b/c I skipped some days. (due to sickness)

    Warm Up:
    Rotator Cuff Work
    Light Pushing Exercises


    Working Sets:
    BB Flat Bench
    45x15
    135x22
    165x20
    225x4

    DB Incline Bench
    50x10
    70x10
    75x10

    Hammer Strength Decline Press
    180x15
    230x12
    270x10

    cardio...burnt 305 calories

    and...I had some time left and felt I didn't do enough sets..so....

    DB Incline
    50x10

    DB Seated Shoulder Press
    50x8
    60x3
    70x4 (left shoulder tweaked a lil so that killed my energy...)
    70x8


    I am somewhat satisfied w/ this workout. I was dead tired today w/ no motivation what so ever. I really lost the majority of my enthusiasm when I lift now. No more natural high and "lets do this" mentality. Every now and then I do, but not as much. I got pretty psyched up for my shoulder presses though. Usually repped 85's but due heavy presses it was inevitable it would go down in weight. And my triceps and delts were pretty dead from the back/arms/shoulder workout a few days ago and I am quite pleased w/ what I did on BB bench press.

    I was sick so no updates for a while, sorry.
    But I did hit chest on Thursday
    I'll post what I did yesterday. Can't right now b/c I have to sleep and the entire day I had to do work and deal w/ my sickness.
    Don't worry my memory is still pretty damn sharp

    I'm pretty worried about losing muscle mass though...
    any advice?

    Thanks!
    was getting pretty depressed w/ no one here hehe

    Alright the workout I didn't post...well I missed a two days this past week due to being sick. Was slightly sick, but stayed at the gym for 3 hrs...and it got worse. Was stupid of me haha. Going to limit my time at the gym to 1hr 45 mins max now. 3 hrs was just ridiculous. Hit chest instead of back b/c my chest is a very weak spot compared to the rest of my body. My routine is just messed up now b/c I'm hitting the gym at weird schedules due to being sick...

    Day Seven


    Chest...again...
    Damn I feel like a major chest/bicep warrior due to not hitting legs..o well
    and if I remember correctly, I didn't eat **** this day before the workout so I was weak and tired at the same time b/c I was somewhat sick

    Felt like absolute crap during this workout. 135 felt heavy, probably b/c I didn't warm up very well and b/c I was sick/tired as well.
    Oh well...
    Going to hit it hard next time! I'm pretty motivated now

    Today was a great workout. Pump was great, I was very amped up and had a pretty intense/killer workout. Went pretty hard on db shoulder press and am quite satisfied that I only dropped ~5lbs of strength on it since 20lbs ago . Last set, my right shoulder was about to dislocate...so I dropped it on my lap and started over after around 3 seconds. Shoot, never had that happen to me before, damn.

    Loving these motivational photos of shredded dudes. Makes me feel like a fat ass even at 4 days out, but we all need to keep striving for perfection I guess.

    Keep up the solid work.

    Fun workout, didn't go too heavy today. Pump and energy were great as well. Much more into and focused during my workouts now. Used to be bored and not very enthusiastic, but now I'm an avid lifter.

    Oh, and my physical therapist told me that I cannot do any more legs, for how long...idk No shoulder work, maybe some light laterals, but gotta ask. I pretty much have to be very careful and avoid axial pressure on my spine and avoid twisting/crunching my lower back... oh well

    good workout, didn't take any pre workouts b/c I had to take Robitussin and I didn't want to do any damage to myself, although I did do this in the past hehe. Still a good workout, cardio was just more tedious then usual, actually everything was by just a little bit.

    I popped in to your log because I saw you were logging for Cellucor (which I do also) and I noticed my ugly mug in here...lol. Honored to have made your "pics of the day" list.

    Im also digging the new Cellucor line up. Loving the BCAAs! They have a real solid product there, IMOP. Good stuff.

    Hey, if can offer you some advice.....I notice that you are complaining of loss of strength and you blame it on the fact that you are cutting. Yes, a calorie deficit CAN lead to loss of strength, but it really shouldnt until the bitter end. If your diet it in check then you should be at full strength until you start crashing hormonally due to lack of bodyfat. What are your diet numbers? How much weight are you losing each week? And how do you space your carb intake out during the day?

    Well, keep up the hard work....when are you going to add yourself to your pics of the day? Post em up!

    whatt! never knew that was you! You look amazing dude, it's an honor to have you post in this thread, and I'm not saying that to flatter you haha.

    And on diet, I am using Norton's article as my guide and am pretty much doing this; (B.W.x15) - 600 = calories
    to be honest, my strength didn't go down as I thought it would, luckily. Now that I look at it, looks like I was being a pessimistic little bitch..or maybe having a bad day. I've been getting around 5-6hrs of sleep for the majority of this log, maybe that? But my strength seems to be pretty decent atm. When I was 199, I was able to db shoulder press 85x9? around there. Now after losing 20lbs I shoulder press 80x7-9 w/ a little bit of a spot. Same w/ bench. 225x8 -> 225x5/6.

    for protein, I get atleast 215 grams a day @ 179lbs. Carbs, I get around 150ish, don't really time them. I'm a bit confused to be honest about carb loading. A friend of mine tells me to carb load but I heard it was just a myth doing so. I'm going to read some more up on it asap and get it straight though.

    I'm a little bit behind schedule so my new game plan is to do ~1500calories worth of cardio w/ ~1700 calories consumed per day w/ atleast 215g protein. Does that sound ok? Another friend of mine does this when he needs to cut down asap w/ minimal muscle mass.
    Thanks for the advice as well. Goal weight is 165, hopefully will be shredded then...

    Will post pics when I'm in single digits. but for now, here is a pic 2 weeks ago....not that great

    Someone your size at 1700 this early into cutting = a recipe for disaster and metabolic slowdown. I think you really shorthcnaged yourself on calories on your diet and that is why you may be seeing strenth loss so fast and so quick... I think you really killed yourself with starting kcals too low.

    Do not do ANYTHING your friend says.
    Is your friend you?
    is your friend the same weight/height
    does your friend do the same routine and cardio?
    No...

    TOo black and white, dont compare oneself to another, and dont use a calculator and think its going to be 100% Accurate, you need to do trial and error. IMO You really shortchanged yourself.

    Ill bet Sean will agree when he chimes back in.
    Go to Lyle McDonalds Website Bodyrecomposition.com and read his dieting articles on diet macros and setting up the diet:
