I'm starting an EC stack, never done it before.. Main goal is to lose as much weight as I can in the 2 months I will be on this.. I don't plan on using EC stack longer than that... I'm starting slow but in about 3 days I will be taking 24g E and 200 C, 3 times a day. I am going to be doing a low card diet, but either I will have a cheat day on the weekend or I might eat like a granola or something before or after the workouts... For the EC stack, I read this website; http://www.hotnfit.com/ecstack.htm for the workout routine, I am thinking of following the routine he suggested, which is located here; http://www.musclelibrary.com/fat_loss/beginners_exercise_routine.html (the Upper/Lower split) It's basically like this; Monday / Thursday 15 minutes moderate cardio for general warmup, and specific warmup done for Lat Pulldowns and Bench Press. Pullups (assisted if necessary) - 3x 6 [or Lat Pulldowns - 2x8-12] Cable Seated Rows - 2x8-12 Bench Press - 2x8-12 Incline Dumbbell Press - 2x8-12 Standing Shoulder Press - 2x8-12 Tricep Dips (assisted if necessary) - 3x 6 [or Bench Dips - 2x8-12] Dumbbell Bicep Curls - 2x8-12 Follow with 20 minutes HIIT (+ 5 min each warmup/cooldown) OR 30 minutes moderate intensity cardio. Tuesday / Friday 15 minutes moderate cardio for general warmup and specific warmup done for squats. Squats - 3x6-10 45 degree Leg Press - 3x6-10 Leg Curls 2x8-12 Standing Calf Raises 2x8-12 Seated Calf Raises 2x8-12 Weighted swiss ball abdominal crunches - 2x8-12 Captain's Chair - 2x8-12 Reverse Crunches 2x8-12 Wednesday/Saturday 45 minutes moderate intensity cardio I will prolly do the cardio only on saturday or sunday and take a day off on wednesday, and after the workouts I am going to do the cardio instead of the HIIT.. Is this a good routine to maximize the weight loss? Also I have alot of strenght and used to work out hardcore so I know there is some badass muscles underneath the fat. Should I take creatine to make sure I don't lose them. Usually when I'm on low carb, I can't eat alot.. I eat very little, and with the EC stack, it might be even lower. So that's why creatine might help with preserving some muscle.. What you guys think?
