Your team made a lot of exciting discoveries about building muscles and losing fat in the past 2-3 years and it. So much that I don’t think articles made in 2007-2009 are that relevant anymore, especially for someone using Indigo and Plazma. (One of many examples : http://tinyurl.com/c7leqcj (it’s on this forum, just shorter URL)
There have been a lot of threads in every sub-forum, but they get too specific and aimed at the original poster and I believe it restrains how many users can relate to them. I’d like to keep this one as general as possible and discuss topics such as 1) training for fat loss in 2013 2) Eating for fat loss in 2013 and 3) Supplements for at loss. For the purpose of the thread, I’d still define fat-loss as getting single digit bodyfat for someone who’s training seriously but is still 10-15% BF and wants to lean out for the summer. Excluded are people preparing for bodybuilding contest leanness or people above 20% BF.
About training, usually what was reported as most effective way to reach fat-loss while maintaining muscle was to do lot of metabolic circuits or complexes to boost fat-loss, keeping doing heavy partials or other heavy work to “tell the muscle to stay there” and doing a little cardio (which I’ll define as treadmill/cycling) but not overdoing as it’s very catabolic. As Indigo or Plazma changed anything about that? Should I just keep doing regular workout and only change diet? Can people get away with a single-digit BF without doing cardio? What are the difference of approches between the coaches you work wih?
For diet, Indigo changed a lot of things for the better! For the “bulking” phase, it worked like a charm in keeping me lean, but I’m still at 12-13% BF with a very caloric diet that was aimed to maximize muscle growth.
Would you still recommend Velocity-Diet as the most effective way to get lean in 1 month?
If a less radical approach was chosen, what would you change in a diet, assuming wheat and dairy had been removed? Lower carb progressively and keeping healthy fats at about 20-30% daily caloric intake? Lower fats progressively from diet? Should we have very low carbs meal (ie meat + vegetables without rice potatoes) or have 30-60 g carbs in every meal and post post-workout?
For supplements, well, assuming people are already using Plazma and Indigo, and still have money for supps, what would be your first addition? HOT-ROX or Flameout or else?
Is the maintenance dose of Indigo 4 or 6 caps a day? Should MAG-10 be used differently?
I know it’s a lot of questions, but I want to make it useful for a maximum of people to benefit
