    I think it's a pretty established notion that I'm a big supporter of A.I. Sports. So I leave little introduction to my opportunity to log the following product:
    GLYCOBOL

    I should mention how giddy I got opening the package to see all the goodies they blessed me with as well. A few of my other faves from AI. Too bad the shirt is an XL... I haven't graduated there yet. Hell, I still compete bantam.

    For those unfamiliar with the function of a product like Glycobol, this is an herbal blend designed to mimic an insulin response to aid in shuttling nutrients to the appropriate places. This optimizes the use of macronutrients in the body without letting anything sit around to accumulate in adipose tissue. In doing so, protein molecules are broken down and partitioned appropriately, carbohydrates are stored in muscle tissue instead of fat deposits, and fats are redirected to the joints, muscles, and vital organs for support.

    In the past, I have used more over-the-counter/run-of-the-mill vitamin shop items like chromium picolinate and vanadyl sulfate alone. Before switching to Glycobol I was using something simply called "Glycemic factors," a blend of similar acting ingredients in a funky smelling tab (I think its the gymnema sylvestre). That had numerous vitamins, chromium picolinate, vanadyl sulfate, fenugreek, and bitter melon extract. In comparison, here's Glycobol:

    Number one thing I noticed: Na-R-ALA?!?! Slick move. Use the salt form of lipoate to induce mitochondrial glucose uptake. More specifically, use the more readily biologically active form. Also a potent anti-oxidant against free oxygen radicals created during glucose metabolism in mitochondria.

    No chromium here. I like that - chromium is a trace metal in the body. It's easy to over do it. And that can cause a big jump in blood pressure. At one time I was taking up to 1000mg/daily... bad idea. Vanadyl sulfate is one of those myth/legend bodybuilding tricks. It's not advisable to run it for extended periods of time. It can be harsh on the liver and cause insulin sensitivity issues. I haven't been on either for very long - I may run them along side of Glycobol after seeing how it does stand alone.

    Cinnamon Bark extract - I've alwasy pushed people to add cinnamon to oatmeal, cream of wheat, sweet potatoes, etc when consuming carbs. Cinnamon contains an antioxiant known as cinnamtannin B1 which mimics insulin. Cinnamon's anti-oxidant properties are quite substantial.

    Trigonella Seed Extract - basically fenugreek. Not only is it a good agent for test boost but will certainly help my body utilize nutrients to aid recovery faster. Especially that sesame seed oil I love!

    Phellodendron extract - don't know much about it. What I do know is its considered an alkaloid, not an antioxidant. As of recent, I've been investigating more use of alkaloids. I started drinking Chai for one thing. Ah, Eastern wisdom wins again.

    BMOV (Bis-Maltolato-Oxovanadium) - Vanadium mineral. I mentioned before I used vanadyl sulfate in the past which is a different form of vanadium. Lets see how this particular form helps keep me looking full, hard, and vascular.


    Just for quality assurance purposes:

    In the morning all I had was 1/4c oatmeal after AM fasted cardio. So like 20g. Initial observations: the bottle smells kinda like maple syrup. It's yummy. I can't quite place it.

    Immediate increase in vascularity. Arms look like a roadmap. The ALA also curbs my appetite the slightest bit - not to where you may forget your hungry or loose interest but you could hold off a bit longer or not go overboard with food choice/portion.

    Directions are pretty basic: Take 2 caps 30min prior to carb meal. Move them close to AM/PM regimen.

    I was gonna post my workout but too tired last night so I waited till my lunch break today. I took 2 caps half an hour prior to my preworkout shake of NutraPro Whey Isolate and a scoop of Hyperbolik. Hyperbolik is a pre intra formula of 13g complex carbs, kre alkalyn, beta alanine, aakg etc. Now last time I took this I had nice energy and some good full feeling in the muscle but way bloated in the midsection. Let's see what happens:

    Everything is sets of ten. Going for volume and range of motion. Trying to preserve mass during this redonkulous 1600cal cut.
    Warm up with pull ups. Three sets of twenty.
    DB Low Row: 50x10x3
    [I]immediately rushing blood feeling on third set. Let's do this[I]
    Machine Low Row: 180x10x3
    [I]Beta alanine tingled like woah. Much stronger than last time I took this pre[I]
    Cable Row: 100x10, 90x10x3
    [I]Dropped the weight for a better squeeze. Middle back feels pumped. I rarely get pumps. This is a full body and thick feeling.[I]
    DB Flat Rows: 80x10x3
    [I]Powerlifting style. Big explosion. Tapping into energy reserves for big sets here.[I]
    Wide Grip Pull Down: 80, 90, 100, 110, 120
    [I]This pyramid was rough. I wouldn't have finished the last without a spot but by now my back is on fire.[I]
    Tricep Cable Pushdown: 50x10, 60x10x3
    [I]Loved watching myself do this. Arms look huge! That horseshoe looks meaty and full.[I]
    Single pulley reverse grip push down: 20x10x4
    [I]This was killer for peaking. Now I feel like my skin is gonna rip. I'm borderline in pain.[I]

    Didn't have the same vascularity I saw in the morning post Cardio. But very obvious filling up of muscle tissue and enhanced nutrient delivery. Effects are noticing. Gonna try a few different ideas and see what's most optimal. It's a bit tough now as I'm trying to prep for competition so only so much deviation is allowed. Definitely running this through on stage day for eye popping fullness!

    Still noticed a boosts feeling during my an circuit. My trainer mentioned it too. Hm, must be the pre workout product.

    I don't get pumps. It's a rare occasion. Either my pre-workout nutrition doesn't support it or my body is still rather immature. I'm gonna go with the second - this is only my 2/3rd year really training in a bodybuilding sense and the "pumps" develop with muscle maturity. Even taking pre-workouts designed to give you that pump do nothing for me. So YES, I do believe Glycobol is a major contributor.

    oh and in!

    I'll have to try this. I regularly only have the first meal with carbs (1/4c oatmeal) right now so it would be a good PM function.

    Today I'm going to Tarrytown for training on a new urinalysis instrument. Seimens is escorting me and playing host for the day - I'm well overdue for a high glycemic meal so should they provide something to my interest I'll bite. If im not interested ill stick to my own lunch box (hoping for this) but I have Glycobol on hand for the occasion.

    So today I had my refeed. It's never clean- chicken park with spaghetti, squash, peppers, and a piece of blueberry pie. Took two Glycobol half an hour prior.

    Oh wow... Blood feels like its just rushing through my system. It's been a good ten days since I had a meal like this. My body is revving up. Slight body warming, blood circulation is full and I feel my somatic tissue responding well to the intake. Didn't feel bloated from carbs or like I'm super full. I was hungry again within an hour and mouth fairly dry still now.

    I should mention white carbs make me tired.
    When I have an insulin response its a bit overdone and my blood glucose drops abnormally low. I run low blood glucose to begin with. So for a bit I get hyper then crash. Not today! Felt perfectly fine. Alert functional and participated through the rest of the lecture. Although it was kinda hard not to think about more food.

    Did 30min walk prior to workout today. Had a little time to kill before my training sesh. Delts and Pecs!

    The last three weeks Ive been doing a shoulder circuit. It hurts so good!!
    DB Lateral Raises -> DB Front Raises -> BB Raises -> Bent over Rear Delt Fly -> Machine Shoulder Press
    10 sets of 10 reps with 5 parts. Talk about volume Our amps go to 11!
    DB raises with 15's, The bar was 45, Rear delt was 25's and 120 on press

    DB Flat bench: 40x10, 50x10, 55x10x2
    DB Twitch incline bench: 30x10, 35x10, 40x10, 45x10
    Nw here's where those prior carbs start pulling into pectorial tissue a lot. I can feel my chest really swelling up in all corners
    Cable fly -> Dips: 4 sets, cables set to 25lbs

    3 sets of seating calves raise sssllllooooowwww
    I should try to take pictures doing this. As Im doing the first set the cuts come out and BOOM there they are - all three heads.
    Big full energized feeling. I can tell Im doing damage but I dont feel wrecked... between rest periods Im feeling replenishment.

    I went to the back posing room to evaluate my meal choice today...
    Skin looks tighter! Carbs are pulling to my skin and the lining is coming out. I was worried the sugary pie would cause water retention but it worked like a charm. Glycobol definitely helped me make positive use of my last hurrah for another two weeks on fun food. And the glycogen stores were clearly there as they had a visbile and definable impact on my workout tonight. OK... bed time.

    That's why I was real happy to be fortunate to log this product. I wasn't really sure what it was all about either when I first saw it - but I wanna look like the guy in the ad, lol.

    There are other products on the market of similar function. I think they're categorized as "nutrient repartitioner?" PLease correct me if I'm wrong.

    I've used other single ingredients before that some are used here. The big one most people think of is Vanadium or vanadyl. Chromium picolinate is the other staple. If you walked ito vitamin shoppe or GNC you'd probably find them under Blood Sugar Control products. No one knows about companies like AI/****/Purus who also make products like this. They don't get a lot of attention.

    Basically I'm trying to minimize my natural insulin spike normally seen during protein/carb intake by taking in antioxidants, minerals, and flavanoids that look like insulin to the body. These mimicers trick my body into thinking it's already increased insulin and blunts pancreatic response.

    Why that's beneficial is because insulin is the only hormone that promotes the uptake of blood glucose by cellular tissue. All the others (glucagon, epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol, ACTH, GH, Somatostatin, and Thyroxine) promote the increase of blood glucose or the secretion of glucose from cells to the blood stream.

    Problem is: lets say you take in a big carb load midday. OK, now you have ALL this energy but no real defined direction of need for it to go. So where does it go? Into stage in adipose tissue for later -> fat production.

    We've all heard how spiking insulin postworkout is supposed to be beneficial right? Muscles are hungry and need nutrient to rebuild - spike insulin to promote somatic muscle tissue to uptake nutrients. Insulin also has an indirect effect on testosterone production. So, what if we could INDUCE an insulin like response?

    ANSWER: Glycobol.

    PICTURE TIME!

    The left side is upon awakening. At 153lbs.
    The right side is after 30m walk on treadmill and a meal of the following:
    6 egg whites, 1 jalepeno pepper, 1/4c yellow onion, 12g sharlottes, 1/4c (cooked) oatmeal and a cup of organic black chai.
    I dunno the breakdown here... but what its important is the carb intake - which is only about 15g.

    Still very deflated. Im not going above 30g carbs on any given day and thats the high cutoff. What I'm trying to illustrate is the potential of just 15g of complex carbs in conjunction with Glycobol. But you can clearly see the lining develop, the filling out of a V taper, and tear dropping in the quads.

    Imagine a full workout and a 40g carb load prior? Ohhh man.

    Pfft i pre-load 100g carbs pre-workout!

    Looking great man, the carbs will really help fill out your muscles. Sounds to me like the low/non pumps could be more from insufficient carbs? Just a guess! I swear when i pre-load 100grams+ before my workout i feel like i blow up during training.

    *oh i just read your pretty much testing on low carbs, smart move man! Putting Glycobol to the test. Are you gonna try high carbs pre-workout a few times?*

    Keep up the great work man!

    I got 2 weeks till competition so anything "wet" you see there is water. I have the thick, doesnt-drop-water-for-jack-sh*t skin. Those couple of days when i had like 15g pre-workout carbs from Hyperbolik - I looked entirely different. I started getting excited to think about how Im gonna look on stage.

    So I gotta start the diuretic process 2 weeks out... start drinking distilled water tomorrow.. Ugh. Awful feeling.

    Not much to report today. Had an awesome back blasting workout. A lot of volume and multiple motion super sets. Had dinner and off to bed soon

    For the rest of the time I'll be depleting carbs with the exception of my morning oatmeal. Ive switched to a gallon of distilled water a day - today is day two and im already exhausted 24/7. Taking it day by day to decide when to go back, I dont want to drop too much too fast.

    Spring water and "drinking" water still has the minerals, electrolytes, and other trace molecules that the body needs to maintain hydration. It isn't exactly the water itself more than it is the solutes inside. Those solutes also have the body retain its water saturation.

    Distilled water is just H2O... nothing else. It does not hydrate you, in fact it kinda makes you dehydrated. Its a fast acting mechanism for dropping water weight. Try drinking a gallon for a day or two - see how much your draggin.

    Day 3 on distilled water and now adding XTract for a few days. Phase 2.

    Had a heavier, high volume shoulder workout similar to those before but only 5 sets with a bit heavier weight.
    Did a full tricep lift of lighter weight and high reps for peaking motion and detail work.
    Hamstrings: Lying legs press - Each leg w/ 20lbs followed by together with 60lbs. Repeatx4
    DB Dead lifts: 4 sets with the 40s

    Its amazing how different my muscles feel lately. My joints arent exactly happy with the change in water intact and the muscle fibars font feel as taught.

    On the other hand, my physique has not flattened out nearly as much as it would if I wasnt having the carbs in the morning. Glycobol and a little AM cardio will keep me sweating for an additional 20min during my morning routine. It speeds up my metabolism all day, even later if I have a cup of coffee my body temp shoots up. Not feeling bloated or too far absent of energy. I tried taking 2 before bed with 2 scoops RecoverPro. Woke up mid sleep for a late night snack and my shoulders (especially triceps) were pumped and tingly. Nice...

    No but I have felt much better upon awakening, less fatigue and body distress. Just an additional element to being refreshed after a nights rest. Im waking up mid sleep because my metabolism is too fast. I get too hungry and wake up.

    Haha gladly.

    Big leg day today. Getting to work tomorrow is gonna be rough.

    Leg extensions (holding peak): 62.5x10x4
    Single Leg Press: 90x10x4 - Alternating non-stop
    Forward facing Icarius squat - 180x10x4
    This felt amazing, hit all of my legs and damn good work on thickness in the quads and stressing the glutes
    Lying Leg Curl: 60x20x4
    I can feel every space and fiber pulling, feels great for mind-to-muscle
    Seated Leg Curl: 60x20x3
    Getting to a point where I feel my blood sugar is low, didnt have any carbs aside form the morning then went to a big leg day... duh
    Lunges - Grab the 40 BB and walk a few laps from curb to curb outside the gym. Im amused when cars drive by and shout to me.
    DB Dead Lifts: 40'sx10x3
    Seated Calve Raises: 180 on deck, three different footings, 10 reps each over three overall sets...so 30 reps per set...90 total
    Short Abdominal Circuit

    Goin one more day on distilled water. Started taking Axis Labs Xtract and 2 cups of Cranberry Tea. You would think cranberry tea tastes good, oh how I was decieved.

    About to drop 2 glycobol and throw back 2 scoops of recoverPro. I like the BCAA idea before bed. Its worked for me these last couple days. I dont think I could make the commute tomorrow if I dont! lol

    The formulator of glycobol, Dr. D had given me this idea to take glycobol before bed along with some BCAAs to boost GH and also helps drop a few pounds. I believe I still have our convos in my PM box somewhere along with the supporting theory behind it. Let me see if I can dig it up...

    I think pretty much the basis of it was deep sleep increases GH release, and low blood sugar compounds that release even more. The stack was 1-2 glycobols, 1 scoop of BCAA or EAA, and some mucuna or arginine. Deep sleep + low blood sugar + hyperaminoacidemia = pre bed pimp stack

    Quoted from: New Muscle Gainer!

    Deep sleep increases GH release, and low blood sugar compounds that release even more. After years of supps and training, I can discern increased somatotropin biosynthesis by a distinct leaning effect. You develop a certain look of lean striation. I see lots of guys here use synthetic GH for bulking, but it seems more appropriate for leaning and 'anti-aging' effects IME. There are many ways to boost GH naturally. Deep sleep + low blood sugar + hyperaminoacidemia is a consistent, cheap and simple way to do this.

    - Stop eating carbs at least 2hrs before bed
    - Take 1-2 gbols
    - Take a scoop of EAA or BCAA or protein powder, or some Mucuna (l-dopa), or an arginine based stack, or whatever you normally use to promote GH levels.


    It's that simple. You'll start noticing what I mean pretty quickly. You lose fat, your cheeks might start to look leaner, your skin might feel a bit different, your arms/shoulders show more detailed striation, you 'feel' better in general, your wounds heal faster (but leave a little more scar tissue than normal), stuff like that. After a few weeks, it's easy for most people to observe these effects if their natural GH boosting has been successful.
    I use HGHpro, Glycobol, and RecoverPRO to fit this scheme. Obviously you have many choices, some of which will be pretty cheap alternatives.

    Stay tuned everyone... Peak week is approaching. So that means carb loads and pictures to follow
