A little background. I am a 48 year old man with a bad shoulder. 5’5 137# and 15-16% bodyfat. I got back in the gym in late January at 150# and 25% bodyfat. I have been using Surge Recovery, Metabolic Drive, Flameout and FA-3. The last couple of weeks I seem to have stalled.
I would like to drop another 5-6% bodyfat and completely eliminate the lovehandles and continue to gain muscle. I am not a serious body-builder but I do go to the gym 5-6 days a week. I just don’t want to be a pot-bellied softie like most guys my age. My goal is to be athletically fit, not compete.
Due to my schedule, I work out first thing in the morning and have never eaten breakfast since high school. All that being said, I am wondering if I need to switch supplements? I have read about protein pulsing and frankly I already do some of that. I generally take in at least 20 grams of protein every 2-3 hours, but with Metabolic Drive and bars (Surge recovery right after workout). I have also read that it is now understood that pre-loading protein BEFORE workouts is considered better.
Can you please give me a suggestion of whether I should continue what I’m doing or what adjustments I should make?
