Recent Weight lifting stack

Its been a while and didn't see this new section. I have alot of experience in weight lifting and supplements and I figured I'd share some of my knowledge with you guys.

Recently, I've decided to get back into weight lifting and aim to start getting big once again. I weigh 168 at 5'7
  • I first started by researching workouts and getting a schedule down on when I can work out. Following this, I researched new supplements since its been a while and ordered some.
  • Right now I'm taking: Syntha 6 Protien, Optimum Superior Ammio Acids, Jacked (NO supplement), and Natadrol by LG Science.
  • I've been on these supplements for about 3 weeks now. I have always given big kidos to Syntha 6 Protien. Ammio Acids are essential for muscle growth & repair. I take an NO supplement because 3 days I work out is after PT at 6 in the morning. I would not recommand Jacked, instead I would recommand White Flood by Controlled Labs. Natadrol is a test booster and I highly recommand it, but take it with a PCT such as T-911 by LG science. I don't recommand following the doseage and just take 2 pills b4 and after your workout.
  • Now supplements by theirselves won't get you bigger, you need hard workouts and you need to dedicate yourself to push yourself every workout. Every workout, I increase my set weights by 5lbs. Also, I vary how I do the workouts whether i want to do exercises with more reps and no rest or visa visera. I'm not much of a diet person, I eat what i want. Only thing I recommand is to not eat at night and dedicate time to running. Most importantly, drink a dickload of water and don't drink when on a test booster.

Thats it for now. If you have questions on anything, feel free to PM me. If you want a workout, I can send you a workout I do.

Hmmmm. don't drink on a test booster? What about drinking alcohol while creatine is in your system?

im currently just on creatine and protein, seen decent results in about a week of being on it. probably just psycological, but i feel more focused while taking it (i take it while working out)

Creatine tends to give the appearance of you being larger than you really are due to the water retention.

Creatine causes you to just hold water..... when you stop using it you piss off all your gains.

^^^^You have to adjust for that....cycle your creatine...do not take is consistently without cycling off of it for at least 2 weeks. You lose your gains when yo stop taking it cold turkey and your muscles panic, releasing the built up water gain.

I take it one month on, one month off......avg. the same weight and gains.....granted, you have to hit the weights harder when you are not on it. But you will not go back down to where you started.

I'm pretty hardcore into weight lifting, supplementation, etc.

Creatine is the best and most research supplement of all time... You will not piss all of your gains away from it IF you take it correctly, take the right kind, etc, as you won't put on all water weight. If you want cheap quality creatine, get CREAPURE type creatine mono, DON'T do the loading phase BS, and take between 3-5g of creatine per day. No need to cycle it. You can't go wrong.

As for protein... 100% whey right when you wake up and post work out. Cassein protein before bed (ie, milk, cottage cheese, etc). I also drink another whey shake mid day between lunch and work out time, prior to dinner.

Know your carbs... Simple and complex. Simple carbs are AWESOME for post work out (ie an apple, banana, etc), and complex carbs are best any other time, like brown rice, oats, sweet potatos, etc.

Get a george foreman and learn to love grilled salmon/chicken/steak, and eat a lot of it :D

Get as much sleep as you can, you body builds muscle while you sleep.

Drink AT LEAST 1 gallon of water PER day, MINIMUM, more, if you can.

Follow a good work out... My favorite... MAX-OT (HIGH INTENSITY, low rep, HIGH WEIGHT)... ultimate mass & strength builder... Take a look about it at:

http://www.ast-ss.com/maxotsignup.php
http://www.discussbodybuilding.com/downloads/Max-OT.zip - Same thing as above but in pdf format.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max-OT

http://dailyburn.com/workout_program...-Month-Program

My bodyspace (on bb.com) is at http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/JuiceMasterFlex/

I highly recommend making a bodyspace and use it to track progress, stats, lifts, etc... Helps motivate you.

Currently I am 6'2" and 220-225lbs, pushing for the 235+ pound range :D
