Hello all! I started the V-diet on March 11 to get my nutrional based kick started. I’ve always been motivated to kick ass in the gym but slacked when it came to nutrition.
I’m hoping the V-diet will motivate me to keep up a good nutritional regime and maintain a body fat in the single digits. I started lifting a little over 2 and a half years ago and have made great progress. Went from being a 170lb skinny fat kid to a 208lb decent sized gym goer.
I’ll be writing my log daily to keep everyone informed in the progress I’ve made and to keep myself motivated. I ordered all my supplements last week and they arrived on Tuesday just in time to start on Wednesday. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning going through all the supplements in the 2 boxes that had arrived haha. Heres the pics, stats, and log.
Also I have no photography skills at all. I will definitely have someone take the pictures for me next time lol.
Waist-At Navel: 34"
Waist-At Largest: 34.5"
Hips-At Largest: 35"
Upper Arm-L: 15"
Upper Arm-R: 15.3"
Upper Leg-L: 24"
Upper Leg-R: 24.2"
Lower Leg-L: 15"
Lower Leg-R: 15.5"
Woke up at 7:00 A.M. and popped 2 HOT-ROX (I had forgotten how powerful HOT-ROX are and was definitely not ready for the amount of energy they provide. Having a desk job makes it worse because I’m shaking my knee up and down for the first 3 hours of the day lol.)
At 7:30 A.M. I took 1 Multi-Vitamin, 1 Receptor Max, and 1 serving of Biotest BCAAs (I decided to tryout the Receptormax. And I know Chris mentioned you get enough BCAAs from the L-Leucine and Surge, but I’m paranoid about losing muscle mass.)
8:00 A.M. I had my Breakfast Shake: 2 scoops of Strawberry Metabolic Drive, 2 Scoops Superfood, 1 Serving of Flax Seed, 1 Scoop L-Leucine popped a Flameout Pill and a Fiber Choice Tablet (they’re not bad btw)
10:30 A.M. Took 1 Receptor Max
11:00 A.M. Lunch Shake: 2 scoops Banana Metabolic Drive, 1 Scoop L-Leucine (I like the Banana flavor pretty good IMO) and of course took 1 Flameout (I really enjoy Flameout because when I burp I don’t have Fish Oil breath much like the lower end Fish Oils on the market) and a Fiber Choice tablet.
2:00 P.M. Snack Shake: 2 Scoops Chocolate MD (DELICIOUS!) and a fiber choice tablet.
4:45 P.M. 1 Receptor Max
5:20ish P.M. Had Dinner Shake: 2 Scoops Vanilla MD, 1 Scoop Leucine, 1 Serving Milled Flax Seed (took the 2 scoops of Superfood in a glass of water before drinking the shake. I didn’t think Superfood + Vanilla would taste too good.) and had a fiber choice tablet and 1 Flameout.
At 6:00 P.M. I headed to the gym and got there at about 6:15 A.M. as soon as i got there I popped 3 Receptor Max pills and Hopped on the Treadmill for a 20 Minute NEPA Walk at 4.0 MPH. (I sipped on Surge Workout Fuel during my walk on the Treadmill, it was lemonade flavor… I thought it tasted allright)
Started my workout after my walk. I decided to go with the Advanced Program. Here is the weight / rep scheme I accomplished:
Bent-Over Barbell Row @ 205lbs 5 sets of 4 (205 was a good weight I maintained my speed through the reps and the 30 second rest period was enough to accomplish my goal of 5 sets of 4)
Overhead Squat @ 135 4,4,4,4,2,2 (I decided to Snatch the weight into overhead position so I was using Snatch Grip for the overhead squats. The first 2 sets were fairly easy, the third and 4th set i wanted to die.
Gathered my composure for the 5th set on the 3rd rep of the 5 set the weight shifted a little bit infront of me and I was forced to put the weight down… composed myself in about 5 seconds looked in the mirror and asked myself if i wanted it. I snatched the weight up and pushed out the last 2 reps. I felt like a beast.)
Dips with belt @ 80 lbs 5 sets of 4n(I thought these would be harder than they actually were. I’m going to move up to two plates next week)
I didn’t have access to an AB roller so I did hanging knee raises with a 10lb medicine ball. 4 sets of 5
Finished up the workout with a 10 minute NEPA Walk.
7:30ish P.M. had 2 scoops of Surge Recovery
9:00 P.M. Did 30 minute NEPA Walk while watching new south park (Wasn’t that good)
9:45 P.M. Before Bed Time Shake: 3 Scoops Chocolate MD, 1 Scoop Leucine, 2 tbsp of Natural Peanut Butter (MAN WAS THIS THING GOOD!)
Asleep at roughly 10:30 p.m.
Thoughts about day 1:
The only time I was hungry was around 8:00 A.M. when I am used to having a big breakfast. The rest of the day went fine.
I had ample amount of energy for the gym. I didn’t take a 2nd dose of HOT-ROX because I was still feeling the first dose pretty hard. I will be taking two doses on the 12th. I also had no problems falling asleep.
