1st Phorm Commander Go Pack Log (Updated 10/17)

Start: 8/26/2016

Hey Guys!

I have decided to get shredded, or at least attempt to. I have wrote countless articles on Commander Go Pack and Bliss Go Pack, but I am going to be a guinea pig and keep a journal of my progress cutting. I am currently 187.8 pounds and 5’8 (28.6 BMI).

Perimeters: Goal is to keep calories around 1800 and then taper them down as I see how my body responds to dieting. I will eat between 150-200 grams of protein, leaving the rest of my calories to carbs and fats. I am hoping to lose between 7-10 pounds in 30 days.

Morning: 1 Commander, 2 Thyro-Drive

Before Dinner: 1 Commander

Bed: 2 Thyro-Drive, 3 Opti-Core

I will do the recommended 5 days on, 2 days off for these supplements.

CVGUU-1UEAAlSOa

I’ve been on for two days now. Energy is great even though I’m in a calorie deficient state. I slept like a baby last night also. More to come next week.

September 23rd 2016 Update

Wow, I am kicking ass with Commander Go Pack. I’ve been keeping calories around 1800 and protein between 150-200 per day. 1 or 2 cheat meals a week.

Earlier this week I weighed in at 177.0! That’s 10.8 pounds down in less than a month!

Energy has been through the roof. Although I’m cutting calories and doing extra cardio, I don’t feel exhausted mentally or physically.

The quality of sleep has been better than before.

Cravings have been eliminated, which is my biggest issue with dieting.

What is a Meal Replacement and Why You Need it

At the bottom of the article you will receive a secret link to purchase all 1st Phorm products, including Level-1, with free shipping!

What is a Meal Replacement and Why You Need it

Q. What is a meal replacement?

A. I get asked asked all the time why I believe in meal replacements and why I think they benefit fitness enthusiast and dieters. A meal replacement is exactly as the name suggestions, and alternative to another meal. A meal replacement protein shake is typically used to replace breakfast or lunch. You are ingesting quality food typically in a drink form instead of eating unhealthy food, or food you don’t have time to prepare. Another benefit is that meal replacement shakes are typically a lot cheaper than buying a quality meal/eating out.

82726f89db87a98b3d34d475f26bd02f

I suggest Level-1 by 1st Phorm as a meal replacement shake. Here is why:

#1. 138.5 calories, 24 grams of quality protein, lowish carbs/fats

#2. $1.67 a shake, about $6.00 cheaper than my McDonald’s order (about about 800 less calories)

#3. Mixes with water, almond milk, or regular milk effortlessly. No clumps.

#4. Tastes enjoyable. I look forward to my Level-1 shake.

#5. Keeps me full

Favorite Flavors: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Ice Cream Sandwich, Cinnamon Cookie Batter

Burns Fat

Let’s do math. To burn one pound of fat in a week, you need to reduce calories/burn by 500 a day. If you are used to eating a 600-1000 calorie lunch, a Level-1 shake puts you already 500 calories less than what you have been eating. This puts money in your wallet and fat off your waist.

UFC and its Performance Enhancement Dilemma

Brock-Lesnar-and-Jon-Jones-UFC-200.jpg

Performance Enhancing Drugs do exactly as the name implies, increase performance. Most of these drugs, or PEDs are made up of steroids and other muscle, recovery, or energy enhancing drugs.Testosterone and estrogen blockers have been suspending fighters left and right over the last two years.

steroids-640x300

The UFC and the USADA

After being pressured to have better regulations regarding performance enhancing drugs, the UFC agreed to start using the USADA to do drug testing. This agreement went into effect on July 1, 2015.

Fighters Caught Cheating

This is just a short list of the fighters who have been caught in 2016:

  • Brock Lesnar (Clomiphene is typically used by bodybuilders to decrease estrogen and increase test after steroid cycle) 
  • Jon “Bones” Jones (Clomiphene and Letrozole, both used to decrease estrogen and increase test after steroid cycle )
  • Chad Mendez (GHRP-6, a growth hormone release)
  • Carlos Diego Ferreira  (Ostarine, a SARM with steroid like effects)
  • Frank Mir (Oral Turinabol, a steroid)
  • Tim Means (Ostarine)
  • Konstantin Erokhin (Drostanolone, a steroid)

Why So Many Now?

Although there were countless athletes who were caught using steroids before the USADA/UFC agreement, the staggering magnitude of big names should not be all that shocking. Prior to the USADA agreement, UFC fighters were only tested prior to the fight. This gave fighters the opportunity to use PEDs and recover before having to be tested. With the USADA agreement, fighters are tested randomly before fights. This reduces the window in which fighters can use, but there is a window. The drugs that Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones tested positive have limited benefits if not recovering from a steroid cycle. Even with the current testing model, hypothetically both fighters used anabolic steroids without getting caught.

What’s the Solution?

Call me an anti-purist. I want to see home-runs, knock outs, and huge freaks of nature. Putting a ban on a specific substance will only ask people to find ways around the ban. Would I like to see Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones fight in 6 months? Absolutely, but because of the stringent drug testing requirements, our favorite fighters will be banned for 2 years. There is no solution.

UFC and the Era of Mediocrity:

Once all the great fighters are tainted and banned from competition will we see the era of mediocrity. Will the fights be as good? Will their be the knock outs we used to see? Who knows.

Did Dana White and the Ferrita Brothers Sell the UFC at the Right Time?

1st Phorm BCAA Review

mainbanner

Purchase BCAA with free shipping and the lowest price by click here! 

1st Phorm has released BCAA- a comprehensive Amino Acid matrix of Branch Chained Amino Acids, performance enhancing amino acids, and vitamins and minerals that have been shown effective in increasing output and increase muscle growth.

bcaa-apple-juice_1

Why Do I Need Amino Acids?

Amino Acids are the building blocks of life. Many of these amino acids have different effects on the body. The Essential Amino Acids: Leucine, Isoleucine, and  Valine help prevent muscle damage during workouts and help you recover faster.

Here is information from National Institutes of Health concerning amino acid supplements: 

Amino Acid Cocktails

“Providing an ample supply of essential amino acids to the muscle within 1–3 hours before or following exercise may help to further muscle protein synthesis. Gibala [33] indicated that consumption of a drink containing about 0.1 gram of essential amino acids per kilogram of body weight (7 grams for a 70-kilogram athlete) during the first few hours of recovery from heavy resistance exercise will produce a transient, net positive increase in muscle protein balance.”

1st Phorm’s BCAA amino acid supplement has 7500 mgs of essential amino acids and a total of 9223 mgs of amino acids per serving. 

My personal results: 

I have recently tested BCAA Lemonade Flavor. The flavor is 10/10. It mixes easily with just a couple ounces of water. I mixed it with MegaWatt V2 fruit punch flavor and it tasted amazing and mixed quite well. I noticed a better pump in the gym and less soreness days after a strenuous workout. BCAA tastes so good, I like to drink it during the day when I get hot with about 8 ounces of water and some ice cubes.

Rating: 10/10

The Colorado Experiment: How One Man Gained 63 Pounds of Muscle in 28 Days…

The Colorado Experiment: How One Man Gained 63 Pounds of Muscle in 28 Days. 

Meet Casey Viator. On April 30, 1973 Casey is an athletic 21 year old that weighs 166 pounds and is 5’8. Fast forward 28 days, Casey now weighs 212 pounds. Casey net gained 63 pounds of muscle in just 28 days. This was done without steroids.

Casey-Before-After-Front

The Colorado Experiment is famous because over the course of 28 days, Casey Viator gained 63 pounds of muscle.

What the story fails to take into account are a few important facts.

  • Casey Viator was a known bodybuilder before the experiment. Casey Viator had great genetics for muscle growth and ended up becoming a very successful pro bodybuilder later in his life.
  • Casey Viator was the AAU Mr. America bodybuilding contest in 1971 at the weight of 218 pounds. Why did Casey only weigh 166 at the beginning of the experiment?
  • Casey Viator had not been working out prior to the experiment because of a car accident and allergic reaction. He almost died. This is why he lost so much weight prior to the experiment.
  • Casey Viator was the perfect test subject: Great genetics, quick grower, young, took time off before experiment.

casey viator

Does this make the experiment a sham? The short answer is no.

  • Weight training with a formal program with the appropriate diet has the best results.
  • Casey had expert scientists working with him on his workout and meal plan.
  • Although getting these results again would be near impossible, it does show the importance of a sound program, sound nutrition, and muscle memory.

 

How I would change this program 40 years later…

  1. The program itself concentrated on short breaks between sets, one rest day following each workout, and 6 meals a day. I would consider keeping all of these in place.
  2. I would add Phormula-1 and Ignition post workout on workout days, MegaWatt V2 daily, fish oil for recovery and overall health, creatine for recovery and growth, and a multi-vitamin daily. 
  3. The workout focused on a lot of negative reps. I would keep this in the program but add stretching to the end of every workout.
