Jayhawkk's Alpha Drive XL™ Final Review
Well it's been a painful long recovery with several setbacks and a few days of intense coco pebble filled goodness but it's time for a final review. I need to put a few disclaimers up first.
While I enjoy getting free supps to test(first time i've made a log) to do this properly it takes quite a bit of an effort to stay on track especially if you have other things going on. I did my best but I did slack a few times when I was too damn exhausted to make updates.
I'm not educated in chemistry, biology, nutrition or any other science or health subject out there. My knowledge, if you want to call it that, is from reading and learning from this forum and asking questions. Trial and error and many errors on my part.
Thanks to anabolicminds for the continued support and Bioscience for a chance to try a product and give me an opportunity to have a speedy recovery. Now that that's out of the way on to the review!!!!
Alpha Drive XL™
Energy: Pretty good energy in the gym. I didn't notice a whole lot outside of the gym but when I needed it, it was there.
Mood: I only flew off the handle twice during this cycle which is good for me. I'm a patient person but if the buttons are pushed I tend to get angry fast. This did not seem to have any increase in hostility like previous supps i've taken.
Pump: After about a week into the cycle the pump was amost a 24/7 issue. Sometimes the pump ended my workouts early. For the most part good but painful pumps are, well painful.
Strength: At the beginning of the cycle I was not able to lift 315 once on the flat bench. Last day of the cycle I lifted 315x7.5 times...Also hit 255x1 on the BTN Press. I've never even bothered curling more than 55 pounds because it wasn't worth it. I've curled 60 pounds now for 8.
Size: I've put on a good bit of size and i'm happy.
Overall: A great product that does what it claims but you need to have your diet dialed in to avoid fat gains. I gained a good bit of oblique fat but my diet was no where in check so this is my fault. I just needed a break from dieting and I felt like to give an honest review I needed to have calories.
Final Grade: B
Definate worth the buy but this isn't a magical drug. Don't expect to buy it and not eat right or train right and gain 20 pounds of lean mass.
**Starting Stats**These were measured this morning and were cold but flexed stats.
37.5 Waist(This is rough because I still have a very good amount of swelling. I'm guessing at least an inch worth but i'm not too sure.)
These were all left sided measurements.
**Ending Stats** These were measured at night cold but flexed.
18.5 Neck +.5
18.25 Arms +1.25
14 Forearms +.5
26.5 Thighs +.5
16.25 Calves +.25
38.75 Waist +1.25
222 Pounds +13

What no 20lbs!? PFTTTTTTTTT forget that then, lol. This sounds like some good stuff, 1" on your arms is impressive.

Heh, I wish

Not sure if you covered this somewhere but were you going to throw up some before and afters? You've made some pretty crazy gains, the pictures should be crazy.
And for the record, any product that'll put 1.25 inches on your arms in 4 weeks BETTER receive a A++++ from users. Shoot, without bad sides to top.

Jayhawkk... you know you're my boy, but you gained 1.25 inches on your arms... with a 13 lb overall gain? I don't know what to make of that. How do you explain that? You sure both measurements were accurate? You should surely agree that's stunning. Like I said, I got your back, but damn, what a freakin increase on those little pencil arms! I might have to pick me up a little of this shiate so I can be like big Jay!!!!!!!!!!

2 things people reading need to note.
1. I went from a low calorie diet to an extremely high one.
2. I Put on a good bit of abdominal fat.
Remember in the first measure of the abs area I had swelling from the surgery. the final one I didn't. So there's no way to tell how much I actually put on other than those two measurements.
My arms grow pretty decently/easily. I was almost 19 inches nov. of last year.

Great work Jay, I can attest to how muscle memory can play a HUGE part in gains, especially coupled with a product like this. Anybody just needs to check out my USP stack log in my sig, I had nearly the EXACT same results as Jay in the same time frame, all because the reinduction of proper diet in surplus, muscle memory and a great product.

Thanks Mullet, this is why I gave the product an over all B as well as tried to explain a few things. It's like some people look right past the facts given and see stats and think one of two things...
1. I'm full of ****
2. The product is super powered.

Not necessarily. It's undeniable that such results in 4 weeks is downright remarkable. Good work. How is the rest of the recovery process treating you? I for one, have no effing clue how you can start lifting so intensely after only 20 days of rest. You're pretty much crazy.Originally Posted by Jayhawkk

Here are some final pics.

Oh, just for the record. I Failed at 335 and 345 August 29th. Roughly 2 weeks prior to the above Video

And the broken tooth is your back's payback. Lifting that kind of weight, crazy sum*****.Originally Posted by Jayhawkk
