I see that you have carbs. at .75 X that weight. make sure you use about 1.5 to 2 X that weight in grams of carbs, and other wise it looks good. let us know about the weekly progress. looking forward to it.
Dave, do you mean 1.5 to 2 x lbm for carbs on the bulk day? the reason i have such a small amount of carbs on regular days is I am very carb sensitive, i store them very easily.

Default Is that glucophase you're taking??

With all due respects to Designer Supps (whose Melt Point product looks awesome), you might want to rethink its use post workout.

It causes hypoglycemia, flat out, in those of us who are carb sensitive (insulin resistant). Yeah, yeah, I know its advocated for this purpose. My reaction to it was that it make me more tired and I failed to lose weight on it.

If you're wanting to improve insulin sensitivity response, why not just use MP? That's one of the products underplayed points, in my opinion...plus, as advertised, it not only causes release of stored fat and blocks reuptake, it promotes transport to mito and use as alternate energy source.

Plus, its a lipid balance regulator. I would couple it with Niacin, and cautious use of ALA (to avoid the same issues with unintentional overcontrol of blood sugar and hypoglycemia).

So what is the deal with the walking (other than to stretch and reoxygenate muscles in between workouts).

The only way I have ever been able to cut and maintain lean muscle mass is to keep calorie intake the same and increase energy out put...either by cardio or cardio like activitieis (like use of ass kicking PL exercises like complexes).

One thing that the cardio is very good for...offsetting accumulated low level stress (on top of daily stress) from lifting. By re-regulating breathing at the abdomen and shutting off tight shallow breathing from the solar plexus (absolutely ingrained response to chronic low level daily stress, worsening as you age).

Increase your oxygenation levels, decrease stress...increase BMR, just by breathing correctly - ahh, thats all the time, not just during cardio or lifting.

Good way to help kickstart losing weight and to reset resistant metabolism.

Ok trouble, so you want me to drop the GXR from the post workout, ok, but I am still left with a bottle of gxr, how do you think I should use it? or should i table it for another purpose? (early morning empty stomach cardio?)

The walking is my cardio, I will be increasing the time as i near jan. and I may even through in some Hiit tward the end, but i dont want to overdue it too soon. I tend to jump in full throtle with the cardio, and either i cant continue to do it, or my fat loss slows up because i get used to it. So i'm gonna ease into it for now.

Here are some observations over the last week:

I am a lazy fvk, i missed two cardio workouts, and one lifting day last week. I was home for thanksgiving, but that was no excuse to be lazy. I aparently put on 5lbs last week, that will undoubtedly be gone by tomorrow.

My leg strength continues to increase, they feel more solid everyday I lift them. I am using wieghts on hack squat i didnt think i would ever see six months ago.

My chest and tri's continue to lag, and hold me back. wieghted dips have gone from a favorite to dreaded. I cant seem to push through the 60lb dumbells for 4 sets of six. I think I may drop my wieght on all chest and tri excersizes, then slowly push them up again.

I have been depressed as shit the last few days. I guess its either from post holiday shit, or just being back from a weeks vacation. I feel no motivation, and I really had to kick my own ass to get to the gym yesterday. It will pass, but for now it sucks a fat one.

Just a quick post about my workout last night. I have decided to drop my wieghts on all chest/tri movements, and slowly work my way back up with the best form possible. I feel as though my past joint problems (shoulders, wrists ect) are possibly from bad form. My shoulder has been acting up again, so rather then drop inclines all together, I did my 10x3 at 245 for the first five sets, then 255 for the next five. It is lighter then i'm used to, but my form was perfect throughout. I think this will help spark some growth, and eliminate some of the problems i've been having.

I would also like to note that the depression is starting to subside, after the great workout lastnight i felt energized, and it was easy to get out of bed this morning for once. Things are picking back up already ...

Well, I'm continuing to see problems with my right shoulder and wrist, perticularly on wieghted dips. I'm not sure what the problem is, but even though i dropped my wieght from 60 to 50, i'm still having trouble with it.

I am currently sitting at 228lbs, some of which is still water i'm holding both from the weekend, and from the melting point. I feel as though I'm definately as lean as I was at 218 though. I will continue to slowly move my cals down, and my cardio up. Hopefully i'll see some big improvements in the next month or two.

keep at it man. for your shoulder and wrist
take Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM. I have had wrist problems since Feb. 04 and I still take it to this day.. always good when you have strained ligaments

Dave, I used to use G&C, but i've recently switched up to Celedrin & MSM. its been working well. My joint pain has subsided, but there is still a problem. My collar bone pops out randomly, and I lose all strength in my shoulder. The worst part is I dont always know when its out.

its like i'm doing dips sideways if that makes any sense at all. It keeps me off balance, and it is incredibly hard to keep good form.

I don't know where you're located, what the weather's like, but I wonder if all that is just the winter blaas. What they call seasonal affect disorder. If it tends to happen to you every year, it could be just an adjustment in the change of weather, less light, and all that.
