    Never did that, but I will say that as the diet progresses I usually have a harder and harder time getting to sleep. I usually use Sleep MD by Iovate which contains herbal ingredients including melatonin and valerian root.

    When doing cardio what intensity level do you preform it at? Sorry for all the questions
    I think I've answered most of your questions if you re-read some older posts. In the past I've always done low intensity cardio, which for me is 65% MHR or about 118-120 beats per minute. I'd start out at 30 minutes and gradually work to 60 minutes daily during the diet. This year I've done high intensity, or 80% MHR, which is 145-150 bpm for me, doing 20 minutes per day. I've been seeing that a lot of people endorse high intensity interval training, but personally I don't see how this is truly possible as I have either the eliptical or stairmill at basically the highest level the entire time, and it takes me a good 4-5 minutes to get my heart rate up to the desired range.

    During the past week while on vacation I rode my mountain bike on the road for 45 minutes daily, pushing the pace as hard as I could but only getting my pulse around 130 bpm before the lactic acid burn in my lower quads became unbearable.

    Not much, but that being said I do use pre, intra, and post supplements for insurance.

    Preworkout I'll take three Hydroxycut Hardcore, six Prototype 216 (Amino Acids).

    Intraworkout I drink one scoop of Nanovapor.

    Postworkout I have two scoops Nitro-tech with one scoop Cell-tech.

    Generally no, but I just returned from a week long vacation at the beach with my wife's family, so I did have diet Coke at the restaurant meals. Now it's time to buckle down and get serious!

    They are helping me just to get through the day. But I know that I will have to cut it out of the diet in 4-7 weeks, I think.

    Thank you and you can count on more questions

    A few things that I have always done are:

    Devote a full day of the training split to back.

    Pick at least three different angles for pulling movements, for example - wide pulldowns for outer/lower lats, straight rows for middle back, and bent over barbell or t-bar rows for upper/central back. I also do traps on back day and will alternate deadlifts and hyper-extensions for lower back.

    One thing I have mentioned that I changed this year is that I'm focussing much more on feeling my back with each motion rather than just moving heavy weights.

    Stay strong and positive
