New AS-GT Fruit Punch Log
My AS-GT just arrived about 15 minutes ago. I'm really expecting big things from this. I know LG sciences puts out some great products and I'm sure this won't disappoint.
First things first. When I was reading over the tub, I did not see anywhere that it suggested how much water to mix it with. Not a big deal, especially since everyone has their own preferences. When I opened the tub, I noticed that it looks a little different than most PWOs. There were small clumps of white powder interspersed within the rest of the reddish powder. Again, not a big deal, just something i noticed.
I decided to mix the powder with about 8-10oz of water. The flavor was good, but not very strong. Next time i'll use less water. It was a bit gritty, just like taking creatine mono, so again, not a big deal. After about 5 minutes my tongue and the back of my throat felt cooler than normal. Don't know if that is normal or not. After about 20 minutes i started getting a slight tingle sensation. I'll be hitting the gym in about half an hour and i'll be posting how it went the second I get back.

Bench Press: 225x5,245x3,265x3,285x1,300x1, 1,1,1, 225x12
Military Press: 95x12,105x12,115x12 (pump started on first set)
Dips: bwx10,45x10,90x10,135x5 PR
Tate Press: 30x10,35x10,40x6
Lateral Raises: 30x10,10,10
My workout was good tonight. The first set of 300 on bench felt heavy, but the next 3 felt pretty easy. I was surprised at my dips tonight, especially since I haven't done them in a while. Tate presses felt good. Next time i'll get 10 with 40lbs. Had a nice pump in my delts and tri's throughout my workout. For some reason I didn't do any chest accessory work, I'll make up for that next time.
I started getting some tingles about 40 minutes before my workout. I wasn't expecting it to hit that fast, since the container says to take it 45 minutes to an hour before workout. Unfortunately the tingles had subsided before the workout began. I did have a nice clean focus and energy though (not stim-like). I also had a kind of "rush" during each set and immediately following. This feeling died between each set, but kept coming back. Finally, I usually don't get much of a pump, especially in my shoulders. I definitely had one tonight, but the reps were also slightly higher. Tomorrow I will take the AS-GT 45 minutes before my workout instead of an hour, and see if I get a little more of a boost.

Today was going to be a workout day, but the gym decided to close early due to it being our homecoming game. I took one scoop again today. It took about 20 minutes to kick in again. I mixed it without about 6 oz of water today and let it sit for a while before consuming. There was still a lot of sediment in the bottom, probably about 5 grams worth. It looks like it was cinnamon for the most part, but it could have been several things. The sediment isn't bad at all though, its really really fine, and when you shake it up it mixes well, it just settles back to the bottom if you let it sit.
Even at only 6oz of water, the fruit punch flavor is a little weak. It doesn't taste bad at all, but I think I would like it to taste a bit sweeter and a little more fruity. I'm going to try even less water next time, to see if i can get the flavor a little stronger. As far as effects go, I am definitely still experiencing the tingle effect, specifically in my hands and a little around my ears. I like it. i'm hoping tomorrow i'll really feel it during my workout.

Also, the energy started to kick in immediately after that post. Again it was a nice clean energy. Not the heavy stim, jittery type of energy.

Day 3 of AS-GT
Today I took one scoop of AS-GT with about 4oz of water. I like this better than 6 or 8oz. It makes the fruit punch flavor a little stronger. After consuming, it took about 5 minutes to get that cool sensation on the back of my throat and tongue. It took almost exactly 20 minutes for the tingles to set in. This time they were more intense than the last two times. They started in my hands and worked half way up my forearms. I like this feeling. The energy kicked in at about 30 minutes and I started my workout at 45 minutes. There was very very little pump work today, so I didn't feel much in the pump department. I felt like my focus and intensity was definitely there today, but my deadlift was WEAK. I think i'm still coming back from over training. Over the last two weeks I have had 6 squat days. Its finally caught up to me.
Bent Over Row: 135x8,155x8,175x8,195x8 (super strict)
Sumo Deadlift: 225x5,275x5,315x3,365x1,405x1 (easy), 445x1,0 (WTF!!!)
Rack Deads: 405x3,465x1,1,1
Rack Pulls: 315x1,1,1,1,1
Pull ups; BWx10,10, 45lbx8
DB Curls: 40x10,45x10
DB Rows: 100x15
Deadlift felt really good all the way up till 445, dont know what happened there. My PR is 485 on deadlift. I'm going to continue to try my best to avoid straps on rack deadlifts, but I need to use them on my mid thigh pulls. Pull ups felt fantastic as usual. I got a pretty good pump from db curls and I got a little bit of a pump in my back from the db rows. I'm really going to start hitting my mid back hard. That and my grip are my weak link on deadlifts at the moment.
Next monday i'll be doing a mock powerlifting meet with some of my buddies. If I don't put up the biggest total i'm going to be PISSED. I'm the lightest out of all of us, but I damn sure want to be the strongest.

Have you tried the other ASGT before?
Just curious on how you would compare both flavors against each other?

Craighmatthew: Actually I haven't. I would like to try it out at some point though, since i love real strawberry lemonade.
I have tried the original NO Xplode, NaNo Vapor, Jacked, Anabolic Switch, Superpump 250, White Flood, and now AS-GT. So far the best tasting has been Jacked. AS-GT is more of a neutral flavor in that it doesn't taste bad at all, but it doesn't taste good either. All of the other PWO's just taste awful. NaNo Vapor or Anabolic Switch gave me the best tingles. The original NO Xplode gave me the best pump. Jacked gave me the most energy. HOWEVER... I haven't taken more than 1 scoop of AS-GT yet, so all this could change. Also, AS-GT has so much more than all of the other PWO's. I'm really looking forward to its cumulative effects, and I can't wait till next monday when I try two scoops! At only 1 scoop, AS-GT is probably more effective than the others are at one scoop.

I took 1 scoop 1 hour before my workout. I had meant to workout 45 minutes after consumption, but I got busy writing up next YEAR'S workout program.
Incline Bench Press: 135x5,155x5,175x5,195x5,215x5, 225x5 PR!!!
Flat Bench: 225x5,245x5,265x3,285x2 (embarrassing) and 225x10 (embarrassing)
Dips: BWx10,45x10,90x10,135x5 tied PR
High pulls: 185x8,10,8 (nice delt pump)
Today was another solid session. My incline bench press is usually incredibly weak, but today I hit a 10lb PR and still had a couple reps in the tank. Flat bench sucked a big one for some reason. It felt heavy from the very first set. I could have gone heavier than 285, but this a SLIGHT deload session, hence no vertical pressing. I had a slight pump in my tri's and a nice pump in my delts by the end of the session. More energy throughout my session than normal.
Possible Cumulative effects: Today, i looked slightly more vascular (but I have been dieting), I had random wood a few times today (doesn't usually happen), and I have a slight bit of acne popping up (this happens whenever my natural testosterone is up, pretty often). This will probably increase throughout the week due to the deload and AS-GT.

As far as upping the dose to two scoops. I'll definitely be doing that next monday before a mock powerlifting meet with my buddies. Depending on how i like 2 scoops, I may or may not keep it at 2 scoops on training days. I'm sure I will like it though.

No lifting today. I was working in the exercise science lab all day testing athletes, and when i wasn't in the lab I was giving presentations. I had planned to workout, but i tried to workout in the lab did one warm up set of squats and decided I was a little too beat up. The rest of this week will be completely void of weights, however, I will probably do some pushups and pull ups at some point as well as 1hour of cardio a day.
I had random wood again today, two days in a row now... Maybe AS-GT is doing something.

Immediately after making that last post, I began to feel like a lazy piece of crap. I'm wanting to get ripped, and taking unscheduled days off will not get me there. Since doing squats would have taken me further into over training, I decided to go do some arms and cardio. I did my lifting followed by 20 minutes on the treadmill.
A1) Reverse Barbell Curls:45x10,55x10,65x10,75x10, 85x8,95x6
A2) Barbell Curls: 45x10,55x10,65x10,75x10,85x10, 95x8
B) Smith JM Presses: 135x10,155x10,175x10,195x10
C) Dips: 15xBW
D1) Cable Curls: 57x10,9,8,7,6,5
D2) Cable Reverse Grip tri ext: 57x10,9,8,7,6,10
20 minutes on the treadmill
I had a ridiculous urge to go workout tonight, and that I did. I went in there looking for an awesome arm workout and an insane pump. I definitely got it. My arms swelled up at least an inch larger than resting. My biceps were almost too pumped to do full range of motion, it was great. I feel like the AS-GT i took 4 hours previous may have been responsible for some of the pump.. definitely a good thing.

I took 1 scoop at a pretty random time today. I took it about 60-90 minutes before dinner. The cool mouth sensation was there, the tingles kicked in at about 15 minutes and the energy came in again at about 30 minutes. Random wood again today, so thats 3 days in a row. Its gotta be doing a little bit of something in the testosterone boosting department.
No lifting today, just 1 hour of cardio. Yay...

Today, I woke up and ate a light breakfast. Then about an hour later took 1 scoop of AS-GT. This may sound stupid, but for some reason I think it tastes much better when stirred rather than being shaken. It tastes a little sweeter. My guess is that its because this allows the flavoring to fully dissolve, but not all of the actual supplements dissolve. I will be continuing to just stir it in water rather than shaking it up.
The tingles felt much more intense today, probably due to less food content in my stomach. The energy was also more noticeable. Right before my cardio i drank about 4oz of coffee and jumped on the treadmill. The combination of the AS-GT and a little coffee definitely gave me a boost. I was also sweating like crazy from it. I did 1 hour on the treadmill at a 10 degree incline at 2.5 mph. I'll be continuing this trend for the rest of the week.
One more thing, for some reason the tingles came back a few hours after my cardio was over and after eating again. Its less noticeable than earlier, but still there. Just thought this was weird.
11-25-2010, 04:55 PM
Just wanting to throw this out there...
Anadraulic Pump and Slin are definitely on my Christmas list. *Wink Wink*
I've been good and everything, keeping a good log...
11-27-2010, 01:07 AM
No new effects of AS-GT yet, except MAYBE being slightly drier. I did an hour of cardio again today with one scoop before and half a cup of coffee. This combination has me sweating like crazy!

LG33: I'm hoping it will pay off someday. Oh, and just wanted to say thanks again for the opportunity to log this supplement. I really do appreciate it. Definitely enjoying this stuff so far.
Flex: Thanks for stopping in. I hope I can continue to keep things looking good.
11-28-2010, 02:27 AM
Possible NEW effect, cardio seems to be going by easier/faster which is definitely a good thing. I have noticed that IF i don't wait long enough after taking the AS-GT before I start cardio, I don't get the tingles. I do get the increased energy though and sweat a bit more. Really looking forward to trying two scoops in a couple of days.
Today, 1 scoop of AS-GT followed by 1 hour of cardio. The flavor is growing on me! Definitely preferring the mixing rather than shaking. Starting to enjoy the flavor more now.
11-28-2010, 11:38 PM
No cardio today. I took a scoop and drove back to school. I was in the car for about 4 hours and my focus seemed to be pretty good for about 3 hours. Also had wood for probably 2 of the 4 hour total drive time. Maybe this stuff does boost test a little.
Taking 2 scoops tomorrow before my workout. Definitely looking forward to it, especially since I will be doing a mock powerlifting meet. Wish me luck!
