    AI Sports Nutrition Stack: RecoverPro, Maniac, Perform


    This is my first time to post about a log I kept.

    GoHardOrGoHme (Andres) provided his personal supply of RecoverPro (Lime and Rasberry), Maniac, and Perform for this 2 week trial. This two week trial was preceeded by a one week regiment of the same workout routine without these AI Sports Nutrition products.

    Supplementation routine: 1 dose (4 pills) of Perform preworkout; 1 dose (scoop) of Maniac mixed with Gatorade G2 Fruit Punch with 32 oz water intraworkout, and 1 scoop of RecoverPro post workout with 32 oz of water. I took a sip of the maniac-G2 mix after every set, and finished the bottle just before the end of every workout routine.

    Diet was not a major factor or influence during the trial (referring to split of protein, fat, carbs) but I aimed to consume 2700 calories per day of healthy food. No protein shakes were taken at any point either as to not interfere with the test results. I also was consuming a Biotin, Vitamin A and Vitamin D supplement, but this should not have interefered.

    Goals/Objectives for this trial were to 1) Increase upper body strength training for explosive power during Ultimate Frisbee 2) Evaluate the stimulating and energizing potential and difference using this stack for an athlete who'd not utilized supplements before.

    Workout routine consisted of a full body workout. There was a 3 day split (1 day on, 1 day off).
    Day 1:
    1. Dynamic stretching warm-up
    2a. Bench Press 3 sets of 8 reps with 30 seconds rest

    5. Dumbell Shoulder Press 1 set of 8 reps with 60 seconds rest
    6. Barbell Curl 1 set of 8 reps with 60 seconds rest
    7. Bicep Curl 1 set of 8 reps with 60 seconds rest
    8. Tricep Cable Pull Down 3 sets of 8 reps with 30 seconds rest
    9. Standing-weighted Calf Raises 3 sets of 40 reps with 30 seconds rest

    8. Seated Calf Raise 1 set of 8 reps with 60 seconds rest

    Discussion:
    In general, this stack of pre, intra and post workout supplementation helped my body recover with reduced aches or pains the day after. While I use music to help boost my adrenaline rush, I found that this stack amped me up more than just normally working out without the stack and just with music. Most noticeably, the stack enabled me to push myself to kick out that last full rep by engaging my muscles with a pump from Manic and my mind with Perform. After the trial, I tested the same routine one day without maniac and one day without perform, and I noticed that I did not feel as energized, pumped, stimulated or intense about working out. As you can see my routine was full body and pretty long. The routine took anywhere from 1 hour to 1.5 hrs. Time varied if I gave myself extra time to rest between sets or had to rerack my weights. I noticed that with perform and maniac that I was not exhausted and rather wanted to keep pushing myself beyond the routine. Without the supplements, my body didn't have the drive to want to complete the routine sometimes. The pump from Maniac was noticeable too; I could see my cephalic veins and forearm veins in the mirror moreso than before.
    So in the end, did I notice a difference? Yes
    Was my workout state-of-mind and performance improved? Yes
    Were there any negative side-effects by taking this stack: None observed
    Would I recommend this stack: Yes

    Very thorough!

    Question:
    what changes would you make if you were to run a similar stack in the future?

    Thanks John; I believe the true strength of this stack is that it can assist a wide range of atheletes who have different types of fitness goals.

    GoHard-Here are some thoughts on this specific combination for this stack:
    1. Increase Maniac from 1 to 2 scoops.
    2. Take Perform Pre and Post (doesn't have to be immediately afterwards) workout. But is this safe? Would the sample size need to be split in half (2 pills before and 2 pills afterward?) to stay within safe RDA limits?
    3. Drop RecoverPro. I'm not sure this made a HUGE difference in my recovery considering a balanced diet and use of G2 powder.
