    What overall results did you see from the program (composition and strength wise)?
    Like I told Kleen, I'm shooting for enduring strength rather than dynamic strength and from what I've seen, GVT seems to be the ticket so he pointed me in the right direction. I don't care to be able to bench a house, but I want to be able to push one down the road for miles, if you catch my drift.
    GVT is perfect for what you want. I basically follow Poliquin's outline. http://www.charlespoliquin.com/Artic..._Training.aspx

    and for a slightly modified gvt routine
    http://www.charlespoliquin.com/Artic..._Training.aspx

    I added muscle and lost fat. Almost no cardio as the program is so intense you need to pile on the calories just to recover. My diet looked like a bulking diet but I was losing bf. Strength continued to climb throughout. I gained about 5 lbs and looked fantastic even though I have been in a natural low hormonal environment for months (due to hpta recovery) I added 10-20 lbs for almost every lift on an almost bi-weekly basis. I did have some good and bad days of course. Had to vary some exercises such as doing cable pulldowns instead of pullups due to not being able to get close enough to 10 sets of ten on chins. After 4 weeks or so of the beginner routine, I took a few days off and started the intermediate routine. Strength builds incredibly well with this program if followed correctly, and the physique just follows.


  2. Will start GVT Monday morning.

    Good to have you sir.

  7. Second pill today didn't do much to get rid of the hunger, but that just may be because, well, I don't know. It's late right now and I normally would have been sleeping two hours ago, but there's a puking four year old in the house. So sleep will be short tonight. Maybe I'll need two PX Black upon waking.

    I don't think this thing is very accurate as far as exercise goes. I think I am not going to input exercise anymore. It gave me around a 1k calorie credit. Anyway, I ate less than I would normally eat.

  8. It's not accurate at all in it's figuring percentages 173 grams of protein is less than 40% of 2000 cals. Yah it's about 35%...

    maybe your like me, when I take an "appetite suppressant" after already having eaten they don't work the best. Though some days my hunger is ridiculous, especially being a former fat kid

  10. Yeah 2 at once is the ticket then the 3rd one later in the day is perfect. With that dose you should be good to go and yeah take it on an empty stomach at least your fist dose.

    Stay tuned for my impression tomorrow, I have been taking the old version so am primed for a comparison...

    Maybe so. I'm not sure. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. My metabolism right now is in overdrive too. It wasn't too long ago that I went back to eating five-seven small meals a day instead of lunch, dinner and dessert, so I'm sure that has a huge effect on the level of suppression the PX Black will provide.
    What it definitely does is provide an even level of energy though. It doesn't really spike, and I like that a lot.
    Another thing....no CRASH. I was pleasantly surprised about that.
    The pills still taste like ass though. I'm starting to wonder if I have a busted capsule at the bottom of the bottle and the powder has been dusting the rest of the caps. Will inspect later.

    I'm not sure what that chart is trying to portray. I wonder if it's what the app is recommending for my daily intake?
    Either way, I'm trying to keep carbs low (around 100 grams) and fats at half of that.
    I use the app really just to track cals and macros instead of trying to write it all down. The raw numbers are really what I'm trying to keep a good hold on.

  14. Breaking a sweat doing dishes. WTF?

    That might be it as the numbers are way off... that's the macros for a 1500 calorie intake give or take...

    I have this tried and true method for doing dishes .. I just soak them and when I return they are all washed and in the cupboard. It's like magic...

    I would have even broken a sweat using your method. I think it has to do with the thermogenic properties of this one supp I'm taking.

    Either way, the stuff works.

    great to hear, and i do agree with the broken cap being the cause
    should be no such taste

    Oh well, the silver lining is that I get a little extra with each pill.

  22. Alright, so I decided to take two pills this morning as my initial dose. Went to the "gym" here in the hotel and ran on the treadmill for a bit. Had to sit through training for 5 1/2 hours. Took one pill at 1130 or something. Couldn't keep my legs still at all today.
    I really like that I don't get the jitters at all.

  23. Sounds awesome. This would be so nice to have right now when skiing all day!
