well, I felt bad about taking yesterday off but i was feeling extra ill. I've had some bit of an upper respiratory infection for about a month now. Its not bad, but with the baby being sick too, then the 12 yo, then the 4 yo, its not like i'm getting enough rest to get better either. so yesterday was an unintended off day but I just felt too fluish and weak to make a good workout. Today I sort of made up for it at least somewhat in volume
incline db presses superset with extra wide grip puldowns
45x12-90x18, 55x8-90x18, 55x7-90x14
incline fly superset with high row
20x25-70x18, 20x21-70x17, 20x16-70x14
decline machine press superset with db upright rows
70x13-20x15, 70x12-20x12, 70x8-20x9
arnold press superset with db triceps extension
ez curl superset with reverse fly
63x7-10x22, 63x9-10x20, 63x5-10x12
feels pretty good. was a lot of overall volume, 26 total sets without much rest time either between supersets or sets. still not feeling perfect, I wish this damn infection would go away.
I'm really liking assault, I'm going to try a couple of evening workouts this week and see how it goes.

How far is sandusky ohio from you or where the arnold is? was watching tv tonite, saw the kalahari waterpark, and might be worth going on vacation to. Need to find something in the continental US this year...
Tonite will be my last dose of bulletproof, I think assault will make it to saturday.
10-23-2008, 09:41 PM
Sandusky is 2 hrs from me and the Arnold. Actually there is quite a bit to do in that area. We stay at an awesome bed and breakfast near there. He has a wing with a jacuzzi tub and 2 seperate rooms in the same private wing. Makes killer belgan waffles for breakfast.
There is Cedar Point amusement park. Kalahari is super nice, like its own private city..lol.
There is a drive thru animal safari, the islands (put in bay) but thats more adult. A cool skating rink with a haunted house thats open all year round. Quite a bit of things actually.

Well in that case, you would want to do Fort Rapids. It is 20 min from the Arnold. They have some cool suites that are geared for kids in your room. So attached to your room but built so the kids "feel" like they are getting their own space. It is not as big as Kalahari but they still have a ton of stuff to do and its close enough to do the Arnold.
It is also cheaper than the Kalahari.

well, my 12 yo hurt herself during gym today, so I had to go home and get her which allowed me to make up a little for no workout this whole weekend...
incline db press superset with concentration curl
55x10-30x12, 65x4-30x10, 45x18-20x20
incline fly superset with arnold press
20x20-20x14, 25x17-15x9, 25x19-15x13
decline machine press superset with reverse incline fly
70x14-15x19, 70x16-15x18, 70x12-15x17
flat machine press superset with zottman curls
70x17-15x16, 70x13-15x16, 70x9-15x14
and that was all I had in me, serious pump but alas, also the last dose of assault.

Assault - I was happily surprised. I initially thought it was going to be similar to other preworkouts and yet it had a different edge to it. Stim free for one which I needed as i abuse my adrenals too much, as well as including Suma Root. I noticed a great pump and good intraset recovery every workout with it, and also kept that "thick" feel in the worked muscles for a good number of hours after workouts, similar to midway thru an x-factor cycle. Was really a nice feeling and I was quite surprised how both morning and evening workouts were without any stims. The only downside I saw honestly was pricing - on the musclepharm website its listed at $69.99 which is extreme. However there are regularly coupon codes available from Musclepharm, and I've seen some as high as 50% off the list price. At $35 a tub, the assault is a great buy. At 1 scoop preworkout, and 1/2 scoop other days a single tub lasts 6 weeks. I played with higher dosing for a week and found that I liked the workout about the same with 1 to 2 scoops, but definitely liked taking 3/4 to 1 scoop better on nonworkout days as a kickstart for my morning. So I'd think that a tub would last somewhere from 30-35 days depending on your workout schedule which is a bargain for $35. Another thing worth mentioning was no stomach upset even at higher doses. I'm likely picking up a tub particularly for use in evening workouts as it gives great non-stim assist. I also am considering it as a potential for regular use, as I definitely noticed something different with the suma root.
Bulletproof - I sadly didn't enjoy bulletproof as much as I had hoped, some of it was viruses fault, some of it my own. I believe I even mentioned at the start of the log shaking the container pre-usage and yet i kept forgetting to do that after the first day. my first week of use was great and about everything I expected and then it tapered off rapidly as far as putting me to sleep in the first place. It did continue to help me stay asleep to some extent and fall asleep after waking for the toilet. Also during this time however I was regularly woken up at night for all but the last week to 10 days of the log by one of 3 sick children - started with the baby, moved to the 12yo then finally to the 4yo, and the baby took the longest to get over it. So my sleep was screwed regardless, but i really didn't get much of the GABA flush and drowsiness after the first week, even after taking 3 days off and starting again. So I think not shaking each time probably had the gaba sift to the top with the container getting moved around casually on the counter, leaving that first week heavy on gaba, but the rest of the time light on it. Soooo I'm not sure entirely at this point whether bulletproof was a great product or not, and not sure whether i'll buy it in the future. I might to try again when none of the kids are sick and also remember to shake it daily if I do. at $35 with the sale I'm right on the fence about ordering some along with some assault to try again myself. Just money is tight with my daughter trying to raise money for a school trip and christmas coming up, car license renewal etc.
Overall i'd say Musclepharm has done a quite nice job with their initial launch, and i'd be willing to bet they will do well going forwards.

Thanks for the final review Easy, Im glad you liked the Assault. Sorry to hear the BP just didn't do it for you, but we will have to give it another go in the future with a more systematic dosing scheme. The GABA tolerance can be built up rather quickly which will kill the sleep inducing effects of the BP but you still get the recovery effects from the HMB and Suma. Anyways thanks again for the honest and insightful review.

I had really high expectations for bulletproof too I did have minimal DOMS throughout, with them being a little worse when I was taking a few days off the bulletproof. It may be that my really high expectations were a part of it as well.

Easy you did realize there's caffeine in the Assault right? It's just listed under other ingredients, but I imagine there's close to the standard 200mg/serving.
