Kissdadookie, Amit and Mark, thanks for the replies and kind words. I genuinely meant my post to be a testament to Micro-PA and the other supps I listed.
Ironically, when I started my transformation, I had the goal of burning as much fat as possible without losing any LBM; any LBM gain was just going to be a bonus. I figured it would be a tough road to not lose any LBM because I set and stuck to a pretty aggressive 25% calorie deficit throughout the 14 weeks (30-35% the last 2 weeks). Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d gain over 20 pounds of LBM while losing over 40 pounds of fat.
I had the gas to work out twice per day, 7 days a week the entire 14 weeks (weights before work, LISS and sometimes HITT cardio after). Even crazier, I was stuck on the midnight shift and getting as little as 4 hours of sleep a night. No way I could have gotten the results I did without Micro-PA, Indigo-3G, Plazma and MAG-10.
I usually ran out of time before I ever ran out of gas in the gym. I’ve worked out off-and-on since I was 13 years old (I’m now 36). I’ve never been able to work out as hard or as long as I can now. Hell, I played college football and basketball, and went on to have a pretty successful professional football career in the Arena Football League. If I only knew then what I know now - and had these products at my disposal!
By the way, the pumps I get now from lifting are the best pumps I’ve ever gotten in my life. What’s better, I get them EVERY time I lift. Gotta be the Plazma… I’ve added another 6 pounds of LBM since ending my transformation, while keeping my bodyfat right around 10-11%
Thanks Biotest and T-Nation.
