Let me preface this by saying I have enough unused products that I could open a supplement thrift shop. I buy so much stuff over the years that I either don't like or don't benefit from and it just sits and collects dust.
I had been using Super Pump 250 for last two or three years because my former product was taken off the market. Right now, I have hemo rage, cryo shock and nitric shock along with some left over super pump 250. I did not like the d 1,3 really as the benefit seemed short lived during workouts and I seemed more scattered than focused. Nitric Shock simply provided no energy and average pumps. I would have gone back to super pump 250 out of these products.
I picked up some Lit Up today on the way home. Torn between this and RPM. I kind of went Lit Up route because it said take 30 minutes prior to workout and RPM was an hour. I am also used to powders for pre workout.
Impressions on Lit Up and IGF2:
I like. The feeling reminds me of my old favorite from the 90s, Hot Stuff. I dosed it driving home and there was much beach traffic so it kicked in quickly and before I got home. Could be all mental, but I kind of felt like I could get a little pump just by flexing or tightening the muscle even before a I made it to gym.
I have felt like crap for last three days for some reason and very sore. Felt like I even strained a lat doing dumbell military press last night. Got on tread mill to do a little cardio before doing a few sets of back and bi and started feeling much better. The lat or area around my rib cage seemed not to hurt as bad and I actually got in the mood to lift a little where as I was forcing myself into the gym today just because I felt like crap.
I noticed my pulse rate began at around 90 whereas my pulse rate is usually around 70 when I first start out on the tread mill. Pulse remained about 110 or less on tread mill so not too much stim here.
I honestly did not expect to be able to do pull ups because I felt a strain around my left rib cage under my arm back to just below shoulder blade from last night. Nevertheless, pull ups were as follows
Body weight around 170 or so 1 X 18, (add 10 Pounds) 1 X 12, 1 X 12, 1X 12
9 plates (usually start at 8) 1 X 12, 10 plates 1 X 9, 1 X 9, 1 X 9
Machine Straight bar curls
6 Plates (1 X 12), 7 Plates (1X 12), 8 Plates (1X 9), 7 (1X112)
Preacher dumbell curls
Very slow 25 1X 9, 30 1 X 9, 35 1 X 6, 25 1X 9
Still a little sore from strain last night and in hurry for dinner reservations so just finished with some cardio and was doing sets of abs in between exercises above and after cardio.
I was actually able to get a little in tonight even though I felt bad the last couple of days and had a slight strain from last night. I credit Lit Up with this. I like way better than Hemo Rage, Cryo Shock and Nitric Shock. Pump was good and actually think vascularity will improve as could see some new bicep veins very close to popping. Like the way it made me feel as far as focus and energy. Looking forward to using when I am 100 percent. Strength, I cannot really tell because I was guarded, but pull ups seemed easier than I thought they would be because of how I felt and the strain. taste, too sweet for me and had red stain crap all over hands and lips.
Looking forward to giving IGF2 a couple of days an again, cannot wait to use Lit Up when I am 100 percent and not feeling crappy. I have not thought about Hot Stuff in years which I believe had ephedrine back in 80s and 90s, but Lit Up kind of reminded of it which is a great thing in my mind.
