For those who run...any of ya'll ever listen to audio books instead of music?? I like music, don't get me wrong..but it's getting old and a tad repetitious. Just wondering if it's easy to follow along..or if you tend to zone out

MPF, have you tried this?

I'm wondering how your typical day is intake wise; I just got it.

Seen it but haven't tried it... may be good for a cutting phase. Be interested to see how you like it.

I just traded in the Jack3d Micro I got last week for some MHP Fit Trainer Pre-workout at Vitamin World (idk how they make any money allowing people to exchange product like that, but oh well...)

Anyway, the Jack3d Micro did nothing for me except give me that jittery stim feeling... I'm hoping this FIT stuff will be better. It's got more caffeine than C4 and has creatine mono and beta alanine too... we shall see.

Yeah, I'll keep posted to see how it works.

I went for it for the extra energy, weight control, to build definition, nootropics, and to build stamina for long runs +4 mi.

I'm no protein shake person and keep track of my intake instead (go for right around 60g) and am hoping this will really give me an extra boost all around.

I used 1MR for about a month this past fall... it works, tastes like poo as previously mentioned, but you definitely feel it. However, if you've been on C4 (like me) part of it is probably that your body is used to the caffeine, which is what most of the pres use as a stimulant. Might want to come off everything for a couple of weeks before re-starting one...

Yea. When I switch over to a new supplement, I typically take a week off from it. I'm up at 4am to work out, so I need something more than coffee to wake me up. It's tough without a supplements, so I usually don't go too long without.

C4 lasted me the longest of any pre-workout supplement without building a tolerance, but now it just doesn't really get the job done.

So I started this MHP Fit yesterday... holy crap. That is awesome. Good bit of energy, but the pump was incredible... I didn't want to stop lifting yesterday. I hope that continues...

Hey whats up guys,

Glad I found this little sub-forum.

A little about myself. I played football for butler highschool, I played rugby as well as soccer. So my training has had a pretty strong base. Im a 31B in the US Army. Those of you who have served know what kinda PT you do. The basics, Cals and running and ruck marching. Nothing too special. But as soon as I finish college, I am going through SFAS (special forces assessment and selection). After making this desiscion, I re-vamped my training and have have been looking for any kind of program that could help me on my journey. I came across several programs that have helped me immensely. I have done a military-esque type of cross-fit called SOF-wods for about 5 months now. They have a free website that posts daily training events. Its wonderful training and is definately an ass-kicker. BUT, as of late, its gotten kind of easy. So I dug around the internet and found probably the hardest program I have ever done. Its called the "Horsemans Program". It was created by and for Tier 1 guys/ SEAL-team 3 guys. It is literally the hardest program I have done. And don't get me wrong, Im in shape, I average between 285 as my lowest and 345 on my highest PT test for the three years i've been in. But this junk put me on my ass. I decided to see if anyone wanted to try it but haven't found anyone to do it with me. SO I'll ask if anyone would like to try it. You can PM me for my email, its a rather big file And I can't link it since its on my computer. So if interested, I can send it and who ever wants to give it a try can do it and please post your initial feelings about said workout program.

-P

I've avoided the thread out of shame...

BUT, I started another round of Insanity this week. I think I updated after I finished Insanity (everything except the last week of it) the first time. It was sometime around October, I had dropped into the 170s, I believe between 173 and 176. Well, I kept hesitating, feeling like I couldn't start for various reasons and hectic schedules, and I of course lost all discipline and started drinking sodas on the regular and eating out several times a week.

I was back up to 190 when I weighed myself Tuesday. I haven't ate all that great this week either, still had some eat-out nights, but I'm planning on being done with it after this week. I felt like I had to ween myself off of the soda b/c of the caffeine... But, my plan is to get through this round and then most likely do another round consecutively to get down into the 160s and my body fat below 15% by the summer.

The biggest challenge for me is cleaning up my diet completely, but I feel like as long as I keep working out I'll be fine and work myself into eating better across the board because I believe my metabolism is naturally high. Forgot to add that I also am going to have to eat tons more Greek yogurt because I have to lay off the protein shakes since I may or may not have had kidney stones after the last round. Oh, and I had to take yesterday off and start back today because I could barely walk after the first two days, lol...

I feel ya proud. My diet is pretty bad. Ill do good for a week and then some one at work will talk me in to going somewhere to eat and before I know it I went out to lunch four times. I am proud to say I've had four drinks this year that weren't water. 2 sodas and 2 lemonades. I'm still struggling getting up in the morning to go to the gym and have yet to go for a run in the evenings this year. My goal for this year is to get up to about 200 - 210lbs after I drop down to about 180. Im a naturally big guy and don't think I can get any smaller then 175 if I wanted. I started this year at 208 and im right around 199 today. Mostly just from cutting out beer and sodas.
