*** Controlled Labs Red Acid gen. 2 Log ***
Alright, a little background on me first. I weighed 260 lbs in the summer of 2004. I cut that down to 185ish lbs in the summer of this year, non-muscular build. I have been working out now since about March of this year. I have raised my bench considerably, and have gained a lot of muscle, at least in my opinion. Right now I weigh about 199 lbs; I’ve been bulking for 2 months approximately. Now I have gotten a little bit fatter and I need to cut the weight I’ve gained plus what I still have left over from before. I bought some Controlled Labs Red Acid Gen. 2, and tried it out today. Right now I’m taking VPX N.O. Shotgun, GNC Mega Men Sport Multivitamin, Optimum BCAA 1000, Tonalin CLA, Controlled Labs Red Acid Gen 2, GNC 100% Whey Protein Chocolate. My max bench is around 185.
Initial weigh-in post workout: 199.1 lbs
Note: All Supplements are taken daily based on recommended dosage. I take 1 multivitamin and 1 CLA capsule in the morning, along with 1 Red Acid capsule and a protein shake. Then, pre-workout I take a serving of N.O. Shotgun, 1 CLA capsule, 1 BCAA capsule, 2 Red Acid capsules, a protein shake, and I take the “morning” pills if I missed them when I woke up, minus the 1 Red Acid capsule. Post-workout I usually take a multivitamin, a protein shake, and a BCAA capsule.
Also I weigh myself in the weight room because I don’t have a scale in my dorm room, so since I have a ton of water while working out that might alter the results but you should see a decrease in weight over time.
Wed. October 25
4 servings protein shake with 1% milk
Chick Fil A Chicken Sandwich with fries and a water
Wheat Sub with Turkey, no mayo
Upper body lifting, mainly biceps and triceps, and running/biking for 25 minutes.
Weighed in at 198.1 lbs after the workout.
Thurs. October 26
Woke up and had a double protein shake with double servings of 1% milk.
Had half of a turkey sub on wheat with light mayo and some cottage cheese and water for lunch.
Had another double protein shake, part before and part of it after the workout.
1 hour and 45 mins of working out, back and shoulders today, including about 25 minutes of cardio in there.
Weighed in at 201.2 lbs after the workout…. Water weight probably, I had a ton of extra water today. I don’t know how else to explain it since I didn’t eat quite as much as I usually do and I worked my ass off much more at the gym.
Fri. October 27
Breakfast – 2 servings protein shake + 2 servings milk 1%, had my regular supplements
Post workout I had a balance bar (18g protein) with some milk and supplements
For dinner I ate at the cafeteria
1 hours and 10 minutes: 30 minutes of biking (heart rate maxed out at about 178) and the rest devoted to legs. I did some squats, leg exts, free weight work, some leg curls, some sets on the calf machine, some sets on the leg press machine, and I even did a few sets of deadlifts because I haven’t done those in a while.
Weighed in at 201.1 after the workout.
Sat. October 28
I was busy this day so I skipped the write-up, but I did lift/bike as usual. Saturday night was Boo Bash, a huge party at my school, so I drank a whole lot of alcohol… probably a bad decision with all this caffeine and N.O. I’m taking. Probably had about 11 shots and a couple beers throughout the night.
Sun. October 29
1 double protein shake for breakfast, I used whole milk because the other milk was out in the cafeteria. Normal supplements.
1 single protein shake post-workout with water.
A Balance bar for pre-dinner snack.
A serving of squash, mashed potatoes, and a turkey sandwich on wheat with tomato lettuce and mustard.
I did shoulders and back for about an hour, and biked for about 15 minutes today. I got a little lazy on the cardio, hopefully I’ll make it up tomorrow.
Weighed in at 196.5 lbs after the workout
I'll update again tomorrow
