HAHA, I never thought I'd like the idea of someone calling me an insect ....then if that someone is Mr Ripped with power-pentagon-veins, I guess it is a compliment
Got to warn you though, I'm having a bit of a personality crisis at the moment Shaddow....
....ooops, don't mind my hair in the morning...

I should have at least cleaned the mirror !
May I remind you that we are at DAY 43 since the start
10-19-2008, 12:39 AM
Now, I know that I look a bit “thicker at the moment but let’s NOT forget that:
a) I am on a bulk !!!
b) I went from < 50g carbs/day to ~ 180g carbs/day (I was at 240g at one stage but decided that was a bit toooo much - I was getting’ too thick )
c) I reduced Recreate from 3/day to 2/day (after 2nd week, DAY 15)
d) Not doing any more morning HIT cardio (since …f.#ck, can’t remember , still riding to work of course but that is hardly HIT
e) Looking at the table above, think it is mostly “good" thickness: :bb2:
..but I'll leave that judgement to ALL OF you
If I had to pick THE FAVOURITE supp from above, I’d say without further thought :

...AND NOW POSTING THIS IS GOING TO MAKE ME SICK !
1st. : suffering from heavy DAY41-inflicted DOMS !
OTHER THAN THAT, I THINK IT IS TIME FOR A BORING "EXECUTIVE SUMMARY" , SINCE :
a) we are more than half way through the log
b) there are quite a few very recent additions to the stack
* AP, P-slin: de-sensitization yet, notice increased hunger within 20min of taking the pills, P-slin (introduced on DAY 21), is an absolute sink for the carbs !
* AP on few occasions, taken pre-fasted cardio, went so hypo I was shaking and after 45 min I was devouring everything in sight !
* Recreate: same, no de-sensitization, love the clear&steady energy, unlike stims that let you down with a grace of a smashing pumpkin
* PwFULL: deserves a separate review
* RPM/Drive(introduced DAY 35), as a stimulant kick on weight training days (that was after I had started a new job and my sleeping schedule was thrown out of whack, GRRRRR !!!)
DAY 41 ADDITIONS:
Now, that was AMAZING, I noticed substantial effects within first day of using it.
Happened to be the day I did one of the hardest sessions since the beginning of the whole stack (DAY 41), and I felt like a freakin’ bomb after it!
So much I went for an extra 15min of HIT cardio!!! Crazy stuff !!!
Bottom line for Rhodiola: decreased both physical and mental fatigue, Endurance went up to the roof !!! Also, increased feeling of happiness (I wasn’t exactly depressed of late but I’ve been absolutely freakin’ ecstatic since the addition of Rhodiola). The later is definitely not a placebo, Wikipedia quote : “Rhodiola rosea's effects potentially are related to optimizing serotonin and dopamine levels due to monoamine oxidase inhibition …”
I only found out about thin 5min ago !
Sleep is improving as well, but most importantly I function well on less than 8hrs. Think the body is definitely adapting better to a changed biorhythm and resulting stress (different sleeping/waking hours and later workouts), and is quite capable of taking more training-related bashing with a BIG SMILE !
* Astaxanthin: for those of you who may not know…
Wikipedia quote : “A is a carotenoid, a powerful antioxidant; 10 times more powerful than other carotenoids. Research shows that due to astaxanthin's potent antioxidant activity, it may be beneficial in cardiovascular, immune, inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. It also crosses the blood-brain barrier, which makes it available to the eye, brain and central nervous system to alleviate oxidative stress that contributes to ocular, and neurodegenerative diseases.“
* CLA/Supercissus: too early to comment, don’t think I need to provide any background info on these
* Nimbus SWELL, comments ?
Nimbus: Swell™ is a combination of Poseidon Complex™, coupled with a very specific dose of Beta-Alanine and Citrulline Malate. The combination of these 3 distinct, USP grade compounds has revealed another extremely synergistic effect that Nimbus Nutrition is quickly becoming known for in the Sports Supplement and Nutrition Industry. Poseidon™ has already been proven among athletes in the real world time and time again. Now, with the incredible fatigue reduction and improved physical working capacity associated with Beta-Alanine supplementation and the ability of Citrulline Malate to increase aerobic energy during exercise (not to mention an incredible pump), Swell™ takes your intense athletic activity to a whole new level. On top of that Swell™ also includes 3000mgs of L-Leucine to improve muscle recovery. Swell™ is much more than a “NO Booster”, it is a “Potential Energy Releaser” for Optimum Performance Enhancement. Swell™ is intended for only the serious athlete that expects as much from a supplement as they do from themselves.
Just as Nimbus says
SUPP TIMING AND DOSAGE (weight sessions, 4x/week):
* Upon waking b4 morning cardio (ride to work):
* 15min b4 breakfast: 1AP, 1Supercissus
With breakfast: 1Rhodiola, 1Astaxanthin
* 10min b4 lunch: 1AP or 1P-slin
With lunch: 1CLA
* PreWO shake: 1Rhodiola, 1CLA, 1Q10
10min pre-WO: 3PwFULL, 1Recreate, 1Drive, 1RPM
RPM, experimenting, popping it in the middle of the workout for an extra kick when I feel I’m starting to feel “down”
* WO drink: 15g BCAA, 10g glutamine, 9g SWELL, 5g beta Alanine, 5g ALCAR, 5g Arginine Ethyl Ester
* 10min b4 postWO shake: 1P-slin
PostWO shake: 1CLA, 1Fish oil, 1Astaxanthin
* 15-20min b4 dinner: 1AP, 1Supercissus
Yeah, I know !
Non training days: doing 1hr moderate intensity cardio, everything is the same except 10min pre-WO: 1PwFULL, 1Recreate, NOT taking Drive/RPM ‘cause I don’t want to exhaust the adrenals !

I am COMPLETELY blown away! You look amazing! Huge difference in the before and after pictures. Your legs have so much more shape, and your delts/arms look much leaner and more defined. Incredible! I'm having a hard time wiping off that stupid grin guys get when they see a really attractive woman.
By far, without a doubt, 100%, positively, best looking scientist ever.

Damn woman... Nice work.
Arms are awesome - great shoulders... nice oblique outlines.
Might be time for a fight!

Note that Dr DragonFly is unsponsored too - that always lends a bit more credibility to a log IMO.

Great log Dragonfly and the pictures look fantastic. Just starting my own Recreate/PowerFull/AP/Super Cissus stack today and if my results are any where near as good as yours I'll be more than happy.
10-20-2008, 06:23 AM
how much Rhodiola do you take per day?
10-20-2008, 06:32 AM
10-20-2008, 06:42 AM
Here it is- condensed
* With breakfast: 1Rhodiola
* PreWO shake: 1Rhodiola
500mg caps, standardized to 3% total Rosavins and 1% Salidrosides (Now Foods)
The stuff blows me away, did 2 cardio sessions on the weekend, I hammered 30min longer than usual (1hr30min total)
I seriously wondered what happened to my "off button", 'cause I was just stuck on fast forward

I did a hell of a lot of background reading and research before I decided to go for it.
I tried A LOT of stuff before and nothing,
I REPEAT, NOTHING COMPARES TO USPLabs
I would have NOT made those LEAN GAINS WITHOUT IT
Recreate/PowerFull/AP/P-slin stack the justice it deserves

The ostriches must have had a spy tellin' them a PRIME-D KIWI is comin' for their eggs so they've hidden themThere's a dozen of the flightless bstards running around outside and not one friggin' egg in sight! Might just have to beat one to death and throw it on the bbq instead...
