    Sergio's Core Zap Log


    Name is Sergio, 20 years old from CT. Currently prepping for the NPC Northern States and CT Natural on Nov 1st as well as the OCB Nationals on Nov 15. Started prep at 173 and am down to around 167, dropping about 1.5 - 2 lbs a week. Once I hit 20 posts I'll include a link to the previous 2 weeks of workouts with Zap.

    I'm not even that far into my prep but the 8 hour shifts at work are very long and dragged out that all I want to do is take a nap when I get out, but nothing 4 zap can't take care of.

    Energy was off the wall today, with just one meal in me I had the best leg workout ever.

    Awesome mental focus, clarity, and increased memory: 10/10
    The mind and muscle connection I had today was just sick, all my reps were explosive with 2-3 contractions and slow negatives.

    Increased sense of well being: 10/10
    After the leg workout I had on tuesday, this completely made up for it.

    THE best workout I have ever had and in a caloric deficit. That bad leg day really lit a fire under me, I cannot wait to step on stage cause I know that every day I am giving it everything I got.

    WOW! look at all those 10/10's. ZAP is a great energy product, especially on a cut with low cals. I'm glad you are enjoying the product!

    ZAP + CORE on a cut = results!

    Word! This is the least amount of supplements I have ever used and without a doubt some of the best results I've ever had.

    THE best workout I have ever had, again!! I can't wait to hit legs next monday, going for 290 on squats. If I can break 300 for reps during this prep, I will go nuts because I have never hit 300 or above on squats.

    Very solid chest workout today, drop set really killed the chest on incline barbell so i didn't hit as many reps as i usually do on flat db and lowered weight on machine flys.

    Very solid workout today, energy was not as high as usual but still very clean and uplifting. Increased weight on a few exercises and as always, rest was minimal and still hitting it hard and heavy.

    Awesome stuff in here man. It would appear you are getting some great results based on the strong numbers you are putting up in your workouts.

    Some of the best strength gains I have ever made in the past 4 weeks. How long do you suggest staying on Zap before taking a break?

    Thanks, I'll be finishing up my 4th week this friday so i'll take a week off. Do you use anything in place of zap pre-workout when you take a break?

    THE NEXT BEST LEG WORKOUT!! Theres really no word to describe the intensity and focus I brought to the gym today. After receiving word from Jacob that I am now a USP Labs Sponsored Athlete last night and taking some Core Zap, I was eager to hit the gym today and completely destroy previous PR's and my legs. I decided to go for 290 on squats and get every rep i could with perfect form. I nailed 6 easily and once I hit 9 it felt as if my head was going to explode, legs were taxed afterwards and sumo squats were killer. All other reps were explosive positives, with 1-2 second holds, and a 3-4 second negative. My goal of hitting 300+ on squats for 6 during prep will be accomplished this Friday. I will be finishing up my log this Saturday but needless to say, the results on Zap have been phenomenal to this point.

    Very solid workout today. Legs are toasted from yesterday! Upped some weight, got a wicked pump in my chest, bi's, and tri's. Chest flies were killer and focus was spot on today. Tried out 35's on dumbbell tricep extensions but I only managed a rough 8 on my first set. I think i'll stick to the 30's and just concentrate on getting a good range of motion and keeping constant tension on the tri's. Energy was solid today especially by the time i hit the gym and performance was on point as usual. Very satisfied with the increase in reps and weight today.

    Significant strength and performance increases: 9/10
    Increased sense of well being: 8.5/10

    Overall Workout: 8.5/10
    Solid back and delt workout today. Energy took a bit to kick in but I was on a roll by the time i got to my working sets for wide grip pull downs. Rest was much shorter than usual and I still managed to hit target reps and increase weight. Definitely a great workout considering by the time I got to HIIT I was hitting each sprint harder and harder. Finished the bottle today so I will post a full review most likely sometime tomorrow. Already have another bottle bought and waiting to be used.

    Exactly the question I was going to ask.

    Also, I went outside the guidelines and dosed 6 caps - was a bit too much (especially considering I was stacking with ReCreate) - kids, don't try this at home.

    However - will certainly recommend ReCreate/Zap - that's a sweet mix.

    6 caps would definitely be too much for me.

    Nice!
