BEFORE Stemulite - my trial of the wonder supplement!

BEFORE Stemulite - my trial of the wonder supplement!

Those of you who read my previous post will remember that I said the only way that I can vouch for the results the Stemulite offers is by trying it for myself. Well yesterday I received my first shipment of the supplement and tomorrow (Saturday 20th September 2014) my trial begins.

I am going to document this trial to you on a weekly basis, including key information each day, to see my progress.

As you may remember, I am a Personal Trainer and also a Group Exercise Instructor, meaning that my days can be long and very demanding. Because of this fact, I have struggled to find the motivation to fit in my own workouts outside of my professional life. I’m hoping to find that Stemulite helps to improve my recovery to the extent that not only can I give it 110% in my classes, but I still have them energy and motivation to stick to my new workout plan outside of work, too.

In order to see just how well my body adapts to Stemulite when I start taking it, I think you need to know how things are now, when there are absolutely NO supplements in my system. Here’s my last 7-days:

THURSDAY

Classes Taught:
HIIT Spin 07:15 – 07:45, CXWORX 09:30 – 10:00
Workout:
500m swim, alternating between front crawl and breast stroke. Shorter than I’d planned, but I suddenly felt sapped of all energy and had to give up.

So, as you can see, I teach a lot of High Intensity styled classes and I cycle to work daily. This takes its toll on my energy levels and in the past my endocrine system has suffered heavily too. I look forward to having more energy to deliver great classes, but also to be able to sustain a decent resistance programme too.

In order to be able to see how much my body composition changes too, I have taken a variety of body measurements which are in the table below.

Height 173cm
Weight 72Kg
Left Arm 32.5cm
Right Arm 32.6cm
Left Thigh 56.5cm
Right Thigh 56.0cm
Chest 100.5cm
Waist 84.6cm
Body Fat Measurements:
Bicep 16mm
Tricep 16mm
Subscapular 21mm
Illiac Crest 28mm
Abdomen 18mm
Quadricep 14mm
Calf 15mm
Total mm 128mm
Body Fat % 16%


My workouts over the coming weeks will consist of a simple 3-day resistance workout, focusing on key areas that aren’t included in my weekly teaching schedule. It will also be a routine that I have personally devised as a ‘5-week Transformation model’ – details will be made available at the start of my next blog.

Thanks for reading,
Be Healthy.
