Hey Nutrishop Fans,
Today, a month after I started my stack of N’FUZE, Pro7ein Synthesis and BCAAs, I’m pretty happy to be saying that I’ve seen some good results with these products and a solid workout and diet plan.
I didn’t quite get to 205, but my waking weight today was 203 (and I still have three days until my target date of June 20!). The thing is, though, that I’ve lost quite a bit of fat, perhaps because of the calories I’ve been able to burn despite eating more because of the intensity of my workouts. I’m not sure. I’ve rarely done any cardio, other than super- or giant- sets. I’m still sure I just have a fast metabolism, so a 3-pound gain isn’t the worst thing for me. It’s almost a pound of muscle a week, and my body fat’s dropped from 10.6 percent at the start to 9.8 percent now! Fat loss wasn’t the exact thing I was after, but it’s a pretty nice side effect to have.
Strength-wise, I feel almost like a new person. It’s hard to imagine some of the weights I’m daring myself to go after now when I know it wasn’t that long ago I wouldn’t have even tried them, which sounds crazy but is true. I’ve noticed a bit more fluctuation between my strength levels from workout-to-workout, especially when my last one was particularly intense, but even on a “weak” day now I’m stronger than I was at the beginning.
Another effect I’ve noticed is that I have tons more muscle stamina during workouts: Before, I’d go about 45 minutes for a complete workout, then feel tired and call it a day. Doing the same workouts now, I get through four exercises for a muscle group and find that group’s still not completely exhausted — I can do more, and can do it more intensely. And harder work makes for the potential for more strength and size, right? I’m hoping so.
Check out the before and after photos — a couple areas I’ve noticed I’ve really been able to address is the size of the arms overall, detail in my back (can’t really see it in the photos, sorry), and some better slope and size on the traps, which I just started working recently. My abs got a little bit more definition; before, I wanted to keep the shirt on because it wasn’t too flattering without it!
The bottom line, to me, at least: These supplements have worked about as well as I could have hoped. I’ve worked my butt off the last month, but even so, I know I haven’t been perfect. Sometimes pizza sounds too good to pass up, after all. But knowing that I have the right supplementation has been a big boost mentally and obviously physically, and I definitely feel like this stack was money well spent.
