    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!TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    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.TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    Very nice. That's why I'm following along.

    The first vlog in a long time!

    Featuring a couple of days at the end of November, a full push workout breakdown with exercise cues and the usual rambling.
