I’m hoping Chris or others can take a few minutes to read this and help with a couple questions about Biotest sups I just ordered.
Turning 38 on the 18th
5’8", 210 pounds
-I was a really fat bastard (230+lbs) and worked hard to lose some weight - I got down to about 185lbs… I was pretty happy with my success, but when I shed the fat, I found I had very little in the way of muscle… I have spent the last two years working on building strength and muscle and pretty good about where I am strength wise, but would like to lean out.
-I’ve just ordered my first batch of Indigo and Plazma and looking forward to incorporating these into my plan. From a carb standpoint, I’m ranging as low as 25 carbs a day to as high as 180 carbs per day depending on the day. I consume 1.5 grams of protein per body weight and use fat (mainly peanut butter and almond butter) as the difference to hit about 2,300 cals per day.
-I train at 5AM and this is my only option - 60 hour a week job with three kids in sports and school that tie up nights. My training is comprised on compound lifts - I basically only squat, deadlift, press, and bench, with farmers walks for conditioning and some LISS and HITT thrown in on not lifting days.
- Can you help with how I should incorporate Indigo and Plazma into my training? From what I’ve read, timing is critical, but I can’t really see getting up much earlier than about 4:15AM.
- If I understanding correctly, a loading phase is recommended with Indigo - can you confirm?
- Should I plan to up my carbs while on Indigo or maintain and see what happens.
Any other gaps you see in the above (which I am sure there are). I have some picks in my hub if you want to get an idea of my body type. My legs and my upper body above my navel are pretty lean compared to the damn spare tire around my mid-section. I want this gone for one time in my life.
Really appreciate your help.
