First, big thanks to snagencyV2.0 for choosing me to be one of the individuals lucky enough to log PX Black before it's released. Also, thanks to MrKleen73 for the advice on training and to DreamWeaver for his inspirational log. If a dude in his 50s can kick that much ass, I should still be able to kick a little.
Some back story...
Before I got benched and shoved behind a desk I was pretty damn fit. My stats were 5'9", 196lbs at somewhere around 10-12% bf. Even at that weight (which is very heavy for me since I came in the Army at 137lbs) I could still knock out my two miles in 12:20. That was April of 2011.
Fast-forward a couple of years and skip the gym for that whole period, and you have the current me. I got all "woe is me, my life sucks and Cheetos are good". In late November, I was 198 at about 20% bf, I would guess. I don't have calipers anymore because they became depressing... I was a slob in my own eyes. I had let myself slip so far that I didn't recognize myself anymore. I hadn't been on this board for two years either. It was about that time that I decided I needed a change. I got back to the gym and started fixing my diet (no more Cheetos) and lost a few pounds. I came back to AM and started researching again to see what was new. I stumbled across the PX Black offer by chance and figured I'd throw my name into the hat. I got lucky and yesterday and received my bottle of purple and white pills.
Although I began cutting a few weeks ago, I think that this will be a great addition to what I'm already doing to get back to where I want to be. I really have nothing to compare this to, as far as burners go, other than the original Arson formula that I used for 3 weeks twice in 2010.
So today was day 1. Normally I take Jack3d PWO and my face gets all itchy and it really helps me with focus (I swore by Jack3d for a long time because it works for me). This morning at 0545, I took one pill of the PX instead of Jack3d. About 20 minutes later I began to feel the effects, but they didn't come on strong, like Arson did. I got the cold, clammy hands but it wasn't accompanied by jitters. Traffic was annoying on the way to the gym, moreso probably because of the stim.
In the gym, I had the same amount of energy, if not more, than I would have had on my normal PWO. The energy was sustained, even through my HIIT sessions between muscle groups. Focus was there as well, as I expected it to be. SO.GODDAMN.THIRSTY.
I will take my second pill for the day in about an hour.
Also, I woke up STARVING this morning at 5. Normally I'll pound a shake prior to my commute to the gym. This morning I decided to skip that and see if the PX would curb the hunger once it kicked in. It was relatively successful and the cravings began to go away. I'm going to force some sustinence down, I know I need it. I like this stuff so far.
That is all for now.
