Monday:
A) Bent-over BB Row, 165lbs5,5,5,5
B) Overhead Squat, 145lbs
5, 155lbs5,5,5
C) Dip, 70lbs
5,5,5,5
D) Ab-wheel Rollout, 5,5,5,5

May do a pulse fast tomorrow and will try to take beginning pics in the morning.

On pulse fast days should you still take HOT-ROX?

Thanks guys.


#2

I haven’t used HOT-ROX on a Pulse Fast day. I need solid food or a thick shake in my stomach when I take HR, otherwise they’re a little much for my stomach. If you can take HR on an empty stomach with no issues, then you’re probably fine, though keep in mind that the Power Drive component of the Pulse Fast is going to already be giving you a mental and physical bump.


#3

Did a pulse fast yesterday. Checked in the morning of at about 173 and came out a hair under 170 this morning.


#4

HSM: chicken shawarma, some hummus, and lettuce.

Dropped to 1 scoop of Metabolic Drive and no peanut butter for the bedtime snack since I’m pretty full from dinner and the post-workout Surge.

Those are good numbers for 175lbs IMO. Nice work.

Question: How do you incorporate the pulse into the V-Diet?

Is it once/week? How did you decide when to do it?


#6

Thanks, reactiontm. I’m leaning towards pulsing 2x per week. Tuesday and Sunday, the day before lifting days so as to take advantage of the supposed “rebound” effect (although I’m not sure I notice anything). This also saves the MAG-10 since I’m not using extra on the workout days.


#7

A) Front Squat; 245lbs5,5,5,4,3,3
B) Close-grip Bench Press; 205
4, 1954,3,3,3,3,2,2,1
C) Chin-up; 25lbs
5,5,5,5,4,2
D) BB Push Press; 115lbs*5,5,5,5,5

I’ve decided to change my second pulse fast day to Saturday (tomorrow) so that I have more than one day before the next one.

Funny thing about the close-grip, I had to drop my weight after the first set, too.

All 5’s on the push press? Unless you’re used to working out that fast, you might want to up the weight.

Yeah, I may bump it up a little next time… although to be fair the last couple sets I gave a little help with my legs.


#10

Okay so did a pulse fast yesterday, woke up this morning at 167lbs (I think don’t, really remember).

V-burn was today… slight improvement over last time 18min 40sec… I want to see the guy who can maintain a 2min pace and knock one out if 14min. That would be seriously impressive. Well, on we go to week 2.

Today is a pulse fast although I only have 5 scoop of mag10 left so I’m doing a modified pulse feast with shakes as my “feast”.

You’re doing all of the reps, or are you cutting your sets short as you fatigue?

7 sets, 10 reps each exercise. I’m not cutting the sets/reps short, although I definitely don’t get as much air on the jumping exercises the last few sets as I do at the beginning!

So, taking stock of where I am today:

I’m sitting at around 164/165 lbs, about 10 lbs lighter than where I started (although the bulk of that loss came in week 1). My goal this week is to really make a push for a sub-160 weigh-in next Sunday. I’m still waiting for my latest shipment of MAG-10 to arrive, assuming it comes tomorrow I’ll do a fast on Tuesday and possibly Thursday. I’ll also try to do an hour of fasted NEPA in the morning before work, although my lifestyle is not conducive to this (ie. when I’m forced to work very late it’s a cost-benefit analysis of whether the incremental sleep or NEPA is more important).

That’s the gameplan for this week, good luck to everyone else as well!

Sorry for the extended absence, I had an allergic reaction to something that was… unpleasant. Anyways, we’re back in business now. I’ve been reading the 4hr body which has some interesting ideas that I’m going to incorporate.

Today was a pulse fast day.
10am - Pulse
12pm - Pulse
2:15pm - Pulse
4:15pm - Pulse + HOT-ROX
6:15pm - Pulse
8pm - Pulse
10pm - Pulse

Did around 3-4 hours of NEPA throughout the day and 20min ice pack protocol as per 4hr body.
