I take Plazma, MAG-10, protein powder and Creatine but have recently begun lifting twice a day (HFT).
I lift for about 50 minutes from 12-1.
I lift again for about 50 minutes from 8:15-9:15pm.
I do this 4 days a week so I essentially lift 8 times a week (full body each time) and would like some advice on timing/dosage.
Each workout is short yet intense. Here’s what I do now:
11:45am: 1.5 scoops Plazma. Chug half then sip the rest throughout workout.
4pm: Protein shake
8pm: 1.5 scoops Plazma. Chug half then sip the rest but I finish the entire thing within 20 minutes.
9:30pm: MAG-10 (2 scoops), I add creatine to this.
10pm: Protein shake.
11-12: Blessed sleep.
What do you think Chris (et al)? Would you change anything here?
I’d go to bed closer to 10:15
It looks solid, is it working, are you getting the results you want?[/quote]
Yeah, I know more sleep would be ideal but I need some time to decompress (watch sports, read news, miscellaneous stuff around the house)…just not enough hours in the day! haha
I’ve just finished the 12 week reactive pump program by meadows and think I’ve had great gains. I have one of those gym memberships where I can workout at any branch in the chain within the state (Workout World NJ)so for the last several months I’ve worked out almost exclusively at the gym by my office (in the afternoons only). Since I started training twice a day (I lift in the afternoon at the gym by my office and then in the evenings at the gym by my house) I started to see my old regulars at the gym by my house in the evenings. I haven’t seen these guys in about 4 months or so and while many of them look the same, when they see me they have ALL commented on my gains so I’m very happy with what Meadow’s reactive pump program has done for me. That said as I have JUST completed the 12 weeks I decided to try something new.
I’ve always been a HUGE fan of CW’s work and being a programmer (as defined by CT’s latest article) I did some research and found some old HFT articles. BUt now I’m just getting long winded…I started CW’s old HFT program this Monday and the doms is just sick (makes me wonder if I should increase Plazma dosage). But I feel awesome so far and I feel…tight/pumped a lot more throughout the day. I’ll be doing this for about 8 weeks and I foresee good results.
As an aside (though in reality it is far from an aside) my diet has been dialed in for the last 6 months as I track everything obsessively (including of course macros) so that’s got a LOT to do with my progress as well of course. Not to mention the Biotest supps which I simply can’t live without.
