    Steele's training log

    Hey guys! I hope you're all doing great.

    I've been on this forum for a little over a month now, and although I don't post a lot, I've done enough lurking. And I must say that it's always nice to have something new to learn.

    So.. I've kind of always wanted to keep a log for my workouts but never had the time and opportunity to do so because of the things that keep me (terribly) busy. I've thought of starting out my own blog, but that was too much work for me; and well, thought of writing it down on a journal, but like I said, I get too busy sometimes - and who seriously still writes on a journal nowadays? LOL. I mean maybe there are still some, but def not me. :P

    Anyways, enough blabbing. Haha. I'm gonna post this thread up on here to keep track of my workouts/diet, and hopefully see the results that I want soon.

    For starters, I'll type down my stats and goals.

    Stats:

    Female in her 20's
    Height: 5'8 1/2"
    Weight: 171 lbs
    BF %: 30
    Goals: To drop weight and body fat

    For my diet, I don't count calories anymore, I find it too much of a work for me so I just stick to a low carb, high protein diet. Daily meals would include a good portion of protein (poultry/fish/beef, not really much of a pork person) and some carbs but in minimal amounts. No refined carbs either. Supplement wise - I'm not really taking anything at the moment. I did in the past but I think it didn't work quite well for me. I guess I'll say I'm still in search for 'the one.' So yeah, I'm open for suggestions! Anything that helps with fat burning and weight loss.


    Alright, that is all for now. Hopefully I get to update this log from time to time! *fingers crossed*

    Hey again, all.

    Glad to see that my log has been posted up so here's an update for today's workout:

    It's Monday so I just did some cardio in the morning before hitting work:

    5 minutes jump rope (warm up)
    5x30 second battling ropes
    5x30 second battling ropes x burpees
    20x5 burpees
    20x5 squat jumps

    20x5 wall balls
    20x5 plank jacks
    20x5 tuck jumps
    20x5 high knees
    20x5 skater plyo
    20x5 mountain climbers

    This set is definitely one of the workouts that I enjoy doing. I just feel the burn right after the workout.

    Btw, still looking for pre workout/post workout supplements, so for now I just snack on a banana before a workout and chug on some low carb gatorade after. During my workouts I just do water, though.

    That's all for today.

    Til the next workout,
    Steele

    Hey guys.

    Okay so last week I did a little browsing on the forum's supplement shop, and on some other supplement sites as well. I found a few that caught my attention, but I'm not yet sure which ones to get, so I'm writing them down here. Hopefully you guys can check it out and let me know your opinions. I'm not really a pro with supps so I do need insights on this.


    Here are the ones that I found:

    http://www.ironmaglabs.com/product/shed/

    http://www.gnc.com/Applied-Nutrition...uctId=11628440

    https://supplementreviews.com/nutrabio/classic-whey-1

    The first two seem like a really good pre-workout, the third one is a post workout supp. I've never taken whey before, so I'm not sure how that will affect my workouts, given my goals (which is fat loss.) A little worried that if I take whey, I might gain weight? Again, not a pro at this kind of things so I do need opinions on this. Haha.

    Well, any ideas or information you guys are willing to share with me are very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Talk soon

    I can only speak for IML products since this is the IML forum; that first product is a diuretic product (water loss). If you're looking for fat burning/pre-workout product, check out our LeanFuel Extreme (my female clients love it). And if you're looking for a protein supplement, we carry a Whey Protein and a Complete Protein (protein blend). Whey will digest fast which is perfect post workout and Complete Protein will digest slower which is perfect for fuel taken a half hour pre workout or as a snack between meals. You won't gain fat from protein powder, just track the calories like you would with anything else. ebfitness15 for your discount code whenever you need anything!

    Hey! Thanks for your response, I will check those products out. So far I think I'm doing alright without the supps, but I'm still thinking about taking them so still on the search for the perfect ones

    I like Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) I use them while I am working out. I like to put them in a sport drink and sip between exercise. I feel to preserve muscle they are especially useful in a caloric deficit diet to preserve muscle. I may check out lean fuel later in the spring, since the hardest part of loosing fat for me is diet discipline. The cravings kill me that is when a supplement that curbs apatite may work.

    Heard (and read) a lot of good stuff about BCAAs. I guess I'm gonna have to try them out soon!
