First day on The One.
Weighed in @ 222.5 this morning.
Waking up I felt good. I was excited to start my cycle! Woke up at 10am took my 3 doses of The One and 3 Cre-02. Ran some errands and then got ready for my WO at noon.
Going into the workout I felt a bit off. The One made my mind a bit off. It was dropping my moral like a brick. Anywho, I had to go so there was no use sitting around pouting about it.
Got into the gym, did my 5 minute warm up on the treadmill. Hit the squat rack and did 2 warm up sets. That's when I knew this was going to be a great workout! My warm up sets were going up like no ones business! Got to my working sets and threw an extra 10lbs on and squeezed it out like I've been sitting at that weight for a week. Awesome!
All of my lifts today were up 5-10lbs and made extra reps despite going in with a crap attitude and feeling. I went in like a ***** and came out an animal! Recover between sets was great! My mind was in it and while things were tuff to get up, they weren't really that bad!
Can't wait to see what the next 5 weeks brings! If all my workouts are this good, I should be making some nice gains!

Im using THE ONE as my first PH... I must say that I am very impressed after the first week... I was VERY skeptical at first but after this first week having put on 8 lbs and my BF staying the same I am extremely pleased... Upset that I only have 3 weeks left on the stuff... Quick questions though-I saw that people were using the IGF-2 and Drive for PCT...
Is there anything else that would be recommended to add to these two to maintain?
Im already using Neovar-wondering if its ok to continue using this through PCT as well?
Re PCT, add 2nd GEAR, an antioxidant and omegas to it, and you should be sweet. Products recommended are listed in >>>the Right Way To Gain 10-15lbs In 15 Days With The One!!!<<< (posts #2 and #21). NeoVar CAN be used on-cycle AND in PCT; and is actually recommended due to the nutrient repartitioning properties.
bonscott: bonscott, the one, and a life mystery!!
Alrgiht, just finished up my 1st week on The One. I'm just updating the feedback thread as I don't have time to log this daily. Anywho, let's get on shall we? Up 5lbs from 222.5 to 227.5 with a definite loss of fat also! Very happy. I can see a nice difference in the mirror which is only fueling my fire to work out, eat and sleep even more! Nothing better than seeing results for all the hard work being put in.
This past week I have been taking in 3k calories. I can take in 2,5k cals when on boosters and go through a slow recomp, so I figured I'd start out at 3k and add or take away from there. Since I'm basically sedentary as I sit in a cube 8 hours a day, my metabolism is slooow. That and I'm 31.
This week I'm debating if I should do 3,2k cals and see what happens. I really love the fat burning that's going on and I've made nice gains also. So I don't know. I can go for all mass or leave a little mass on the table and lose some fat yet for summer. What to do?!?
My diet schedule and supplements consist of;
10am: wake; take 3 The One and mix up 2 scoops xtend and 2 scoops bulk BCAA
11am: mix a scoop of muscle milk in 1 cup 2% milk, 5 Uni-liver
1: 1 scoop Universal EAA Nitro, a pack Animal Nitro, and 3 NeoVar
1:30: 2 scoops MM in 1 cup 2% milk w/ 40g WMS, 1 cup strawberries, 1 banana 1 CLA, 2 Biomend, 2 Complete-Balance
3:00: Natty Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich on whole wheat, 3 fish oil, 5 uni-liver, Animal Flex
5:00: Chili(93/7 hamburger, beans, onions, lots of tomatoes) 3 Fish oil, 5 uni-liver
8:00: Spaghetti(93/7 burger and lots of noodles) 3 Neovar, 1 EGCG, 1 CLA, 3 fish oil, 5 Uni-liver
11:00: Tuna(mixed in Canola Oil Mayo) w whole grain crackers, 3 fish oil, 1 egcg, 5 Uni-liver
1am: 1 Scoop Casein in 1 cup 2% milk, 5 Uni-liver, 3 fish oil
There isn't a lot of solid foods on WO days in the morning as I just don't do as well with a gut full of food. Until actually taking The One I never had the stomach for solids after a WO either. But recently I have been HUNGRY and have been able to eat something.
Otherwise on non-WO days. I get in more solid foods. I will pan sear a steak or pork chop and throw a potato in the microwave for 5 minutes and eat that as breakfast a half hour after my Xtend drink.
Exercise; I'm doing the starting strength 3x5 routine. I respond very well to squatting every WO and with compound exercises in general. Especially with a high intensity. So I decided to use this routine as apposed to a low weight/high volume routine. So far I'd say it's working
MOOD: 10/10 Awesome! I'm just in a good mood all day. The aggression only comes on in the gym. With natural test boosters I was noticeably more aggressive and angry during the day.
HUNGER: 10/10 I can eat. Between this stuff and NeoVar. I have no problem packing away big meals and not feeling bogged down by them in the slightest. As soon as there is room in my gut I feel like feeding again.
FOCUS: 8/10 Outside of the gym the focus is lacking. 2 days it was hard to get myself in there. But once I was there I was a ****ing robot. I didn't think, I just did it.
SIDES: 9/10 None so far. It kind of messes with my mind when coming on and when it's wearing down at the end of the night. But I have always been sensitive to chemical changes in my body.
LIBIDO: 7/10 It's taken a bit of a dive. I do get random hard-ons, but the hardness is lacking a bit. I have a hard time keeping it up for the second round which is usually not a problem(this is more of a testament to the attraction I have for my GF as it is for my stamina. I can't do this for everyone )
STRENGTH: 9/10 I've added 10-15lbs on my lifts this week and could probably pushed harder on my squats, but wanted to keep good form above all else. Things just go up a lot easier on The One
BODY COMPOSITION AND LOOK: 10/10 Definitely growing and losing. Muscle is up, fat is down. I love it. All in just one week! I was using Prime for 6 weeks and never experience this and I paid 2x the amount(still pisses me off)
QUALITY OF TRAINING: 10/10 Recovery between sets is great. Mentally once I'm in the gym. It's ON. The mind-muscle connection is there, easy to keep good form while lifting heavier than I would without being on The One. This makes training an absolute blast!
OVERALL: 10/10 All I want this thing to do is add beef and it is!! Taking off some fat is an added bonus I wasn't expecting. I came into this skeptical as I've bought into the hype of Prime and was expecting way more than I ever got out of it(I hit a plateau on it for christs sake). But, I've added beef, the scale tells me this, the mirror tells me this. My GF told me I look bigger. The only question is; add more beef or just keep doing what I'm doing. Such a conundrum!!
If you want to gain muscle mass, then 3,000 calories seems a little LOW (then again, you know your body better than anyone, so if it works for you, it works; I would recommend going HIGHER, though).
Make sure that before your 8pm meal you have your dose of NeoVar 15-20 minutes BEFORE the meal, NOT with it or after it.
Why are you comparing The ONE to Prime? They are two completely different products in two completely different categories: The ONE is hormonal; Prime is NOT. So of course you are going to get better results on a PH.
Yep, fat loss is something that, regardless of goal and calories consumption, most users have experienced.
Going in, I just wanted to add mass. But after seeing some recomp AND putting on mass. Putting on 5lbs and dropping fat is pretty damn good for week1! I've been liking what I see so far so I don't know if I want to F with the formula much.
I think I will stick to 3k cals through Friday and then add a 1/2 cup of oats to my mid day meal/pwo shake. As far as 3k cals being low... For most I'm sure it is! But my metabolism is slow, i'm old(er) and I sit at work for 8 hours of my day. Other than the gym, my life is pretty sedentary. I do some biking/running on the weekends at a local park. But otherwise my schedule is working out, cooking, working and sleeping.
Prior to this I was doing a recomp eating 2,5k cals a day while doing fasted cardio every off day and I wasn't making the progress I am now. I'm not even doing any cardio now! PLUS, I was taking LR/DCP stack then also! This stuff(The One) is awesome!
I know Prime and The One are different. But I got caught up in the claims and was expecting too much and when I didn't see results, it stung. I was and still am bummed.
salto571: My THE ONE Log with weekly pics!!!
the one has good glut-4 somethnig huh? thats why there is a lot of initial weight gain immediatley after a weight training session?
if you were to dose 4 first thing in the morning would it be done on an empty stomach or after a meal?
What's the advantage of dosing 4 first thing in the morning vs. splitting up 2/2?
There is no "advantage" per se to dosing twice daily (as opposed to only once); this recommendation is for those who experience lethargy dosing all first thing in the morning (i.e. splitting up the doses means less chance of lethargy).
what ph has bold in it?
Second, not quite sure what you mean by "which ph has bold in it?"; what ingredient are you referring to as "bold"? iForce Nutrition makes a PH called 1,4 AD BOLD 200 [that contains 200mg of 1, 4 Androstadiene-3, 17- Dione], if that's what you mean.

quick question... how long will The One + 2nd Gear, be on sale for together? I want to run this as my first PH, but not for a while (need to get more things in order beforehand)

Finishing up the ONE cycle... :(
I am in the last 3 days of this cycle... My body weight is up 12 lbs(272 to 284) and by BF is actually down by .5%! I added 35lbs to my max on bench(305 to 340) and 55lbs to my squat max(315 to 370-never have made much progress with legs but now-WOW!)... I am extremely impressed with this product and will be using it down the road for my cutting cycle... Interested to see what it can do for me on that...
Had one quick question-on PCT what is recommended to be used in conjunction with 2nd Gear? I have a bottle of Neovar im planning on taking-but is there anything else that will help? IGF-2, RPM, DRIVE, etc.?
Re PCT, did you not read >>>the Right Way To Gain 10-15lbs In 15 Days With The One!!!<<<
IGF-2 and Drive are recommended to be run in conjunction with 2nd GEAR for PCT (if cost is an issue, Drive at the least). NeoVar can be used as creatine. RPM can be used as preworkout. An antioxidant should also be used.
