    Re: TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    I shared some interesting human research a couple of months back comparing the use of diet drinks with water during a 12 week dietary period. Subjects consuming diet drinks as a whole lost more total body weight, most likely due to increased adherence due to increased satiation from carbonation, and curbing cravings from sweeteners.

    Here's another win for diet drinks I just stumbled on. 'Low-calorie sweetened beverages' demonstrated the same (if not better) dietary intake and glycemic response when compared with water consumption.

    Take-home point being, diet drinks are an excellent tool to use in dietary periods to increase dietary adherence, and are an excellent choice for the general population to reduce overall caloric intake without effecting glycemic response.

    My client and friend Henrique keeping it tight one week post-show.

    The mission right now is to get all cardio out, all supplementation out, get all health markers in check and get his metabolism firing again before pushing forward with a growth phase.

    TOPICAL FAT BURNERS

    Firstly, can they work? Short answer - yes.

    Yohimbine is likely the most common, and one I have used with multiple clients with success and one that has some solid research behind its efficacy.

    One compound not mentioned often for topical fat burning is aminophylline. Aminophylline is used medically as a bronchodilator.

    Aminophylline stimulates lipolysis via:
    - Inhibits phosphodieterase, which raises intra-cellular cAMP
    - Nonselective adenosine receptor agonist (activates brown fat)

    In the research below, 50 individuals consuming an iso-caloric diet were split into two groups, one using aminophylline cream on the waist, and one not. Both groups lost the same total BMI over 12 weeks, but waist circumference reduction in the aminophylline group was significantly greater. It's worth noting that the effect is greater on women than men, but is still effective for both.

    A photo I found on my camera that I accidentally took trying to film some training footage from a few weeks back!

    I am sat editing it now, so expect a vlog with a push workout breakdown in the next day or so. It's taken two weeks to the day to find a chance to edit it, but I'm trying to get the YouTube firing again!64e5828cb02191e85d70e1878288de2f 1

    Quick shot of some recomp in action! 210lbs in both photos. 9 months and 5 days between photos. I'm really happy with the body comp change here, especially considering 6 out of 9 months were spent at TRT only.6bff302f9f0ca4645e9e0d3c73cf6832 1

    Re: TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    Men with low plasma testosterone levels (<250ng/dl in this paper) exhibited increases in multiple cardiovascular disease markers.

    Among many other deleterious effects of hypogonadism, this is one primary reason why I do not favour the 'cycling' theory of AAS use for physique athletes, as I would rather avoid spending any time in a hypogonadal state. (However long that may be, depending on the individual variable HPTA recovery rate). Cruising at a true TRT dose of testosterone, sufficient to put you somewhere in the 700-900ng/dl range removes the possibility of negative knocks to health markers of being hypogonadal, without introducing additional risk.

    This is also a push to all males to be active in monitoring your endogenous hormone levels regularly as you age, at least once per year, and getting onto the relative form of HRT as and when necessary.

    For you guys following along... Last weeks caloric adjustments are doing the trick, weight is trending upwards now. Visually looking 'fuller' which is giving the appearance almost of being leaner.

    Now sitting around 212lbs upon waking. 7 weeks in to blast, +32lbs from diet low.
    All bio-feedback and health markers still perfect.
    Any questions, shoot them below!191790729d2faba489636a37a1d31c34 13c38d923ffb86f81f3da263bbddadae3 1

    Usual Tuesday update...

    Sitting around 211lbs upon waking this week. Condition and insulin sensitivity still hanging in there. This is right where we want to be, especially considering we are 30+lbs up.

    All bio-feedback is solid, all health markers where I want them etc.

    Beginning another training block today. Repeating the last 4 week cycle with a 2.5-5% increase on PO based stuff.

    Weight has levelled off and metabolism is healthy so a little food bump coming in today. +15c and +10f on training days, +15f on rest days. a3ab3cd0c0e959d42069781d94324c99 1e37ce12dce4f1471c42ca26731020462 1

    I need to do some more research on these blocks of training. I have another friend who is doing something very similar with great success. Thank you for your hard work and diligence. Hope you had a merry christmas.

    Got in the last session of the year today with Jas by revisiting this awesome gym. We were lucky to find somewhere like this whilst away.

    Have a great NYE everybody whatever you are doing, and stay safe!

    Thank you all for all of your support this year. I can't believe how much JJ Physique and OPD has expanded so fast this year, and from the bottom of my heart I appreciate everybody who supports and plays a part.

    Here's to another successful year for all of us!8215a1584a185f3d880de576b97fdaeb 1
