MC's BetaA9/Intra-Aid Log - Nutrient Timing at its Best!! (Sponsored)
Ahhhhhh.....at last, my absolutely BRUTAL finals are over, hopefully I passed both so I can be DONE with my Masters! But that is neither here nor there because its time to finally get this log up and running!!
No one doubts the importance of proper diet and nutrition to acheive ones physical goals regardless of whether it be to lose weight or to gain muscle. Over time I began to see how the timing of nutrition also goes a long way into achieving your physical goals. Personally, I have discovered how vital intra-workout nutrition/supplementation is. Post workout nutrition is crucial in the process of recovery. However, I find that intra-workout nutrition is the key to enhancing your performance for the time you do spend working out, allowing one to squeeze maximum effort into each and everyworkout. Intra-workout supplements have done wonders for my strength and endurance in the gym. I've cycled through numerous products in the past including Xtend, Purple Wraath, ICE, Intra-Bolic, and USPLabs Monster Shake. I've had nothing but positive experiences from each, thus it was no surprise how elated and appreciative I was when the gracious guys of UN & Hoomgar chose me to log their tantalizing combo of Intra-Aid/BetaA9.

Im hoping to get a nice workout in tonight guys...I am still kind of beat from 6 hours of finals last night, so if I don't get to start Intra-Aid/BetaA9 tonight, I promise my first day will be tomorrow night (Thursday). Lets just hope I have something left in the tank for tonight.

So last night was my first night at the gym with Intra-Aid. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry to get to the gym after work, I forgot to crack open my bottle of BA9, I definitely wont forget next time! It has been a rough week and I CRASHED tonight when I got home, I'm glad I was able to get to the gym last night because I had nothing left in the tank to get to the gym tonight.
Last night was Back/Tricep split. It was good to get to the gym last night, the stress gets put on the backburner while im there.
I put one scoop of Intra-Aid into a shaker bottle prior to leaving the gym. Upon arriving, I filled it 3/4 of the way up with water. A few shakes and it mixed beautifully and to my surprise the taste was actually REALLY good. The closest product profile ive tried in the past would be Intrabolic Apple flavor, and while not bad, its flavor wasnt that great and would continually leave a bad aftertaste. The Blue Raspberry Intra-Aid was delicious. It had the perfect consistency and just the right amount of flavoring, not too sweet, not too whey tasting. I really liked it. I continued to sip on the shake throughout my workout and cardio.
My workout consisted of:
4x Hammer Strength Lateral Pull Downs
3x T-Bar Row
3x Reverse Tricep Cable Pull Down
3x Tricep Rope Pulldown
3x Hammer Strength Row
4x Hammer Strength Tricep Pushdown
25 minutes of Recumbant Bike
Never felt weak or tired throughout the workout. So far my first night with Intra-Aid was a positive one. I can't wait to stack BA9 with it next time.
Next update to come tomorrow on Leg Day!
12-11-2008, 10:49 PM
Ahh, leg day - the true test of any peri-workout product!
When running a split (very rare for me) I prefer to stick back with tris and chest with bis too. Bis are always to tired from working back to really be able to work them. Same with tris and chest on the same day. Splitting it up like you have it is definitely the better option, IMO.
12-12-2008, 12:03 PM
Nice work MC. Don't forget to load up on your BA9! LOL! Unlike the Intra-Aid you take the BA9 every day. Get it into your system and good things will happen.
12-13-2008, 06:49 PM
Ugggggggghh... guys I must have some sort of bug. This past 2 days has sucked big time. Feel deathly exhausted and major stomach issues. I did manage to get a workout it today & yesterday though. I pushed through because I had been so busy earlier in the week I was unable to get to the gym. I will update on these two workouts in a bit....
12-13-2008, 06:58 PM
Oh, ouch. Take it easy - I totally understand you wanting to keep working out, but watch yourself and don't over do it. Taking a couple days off if need be won't hurt you and you're log will still be here when you're feeling better.
Feel better bro...

Oh man, I think I am FINALLY starting to feel slightly better, I still feel way off though. Saturday was leg day. I pretty much had the gym to myself which was really nice. I must have been slacking on legs recently or this illness really did hit me hard because I had a heck of a time throwing up the weight Im use to and I still have DOMS from hell!
4x Leg Press
3x Seated Leg Curls
3x Leg Extensions
25 minutes high intensity recumbant bike
I've been remembering to take my daily doses of BetaA9 and only on the first day did I get slight tingles in my hands. I haven't gotten tingles from BA in a while (maybe since the first time I tried Purple Wraath), and I sipped on my delicious intra-aid shake. I'm hoping I can get in some excellent workouts this week, especially since next week is Christmas and all. I gotta go hard this week!

Good work considering how you have felt MC. Keep getting better man. Take care of yourself. Up the vitamin C intake!
12-15-2008, 08:30 PM
I'm baaaaaaaaack baby!!!
Yes!!!!!!!! I am back to feeling good! I felt absolutley amazing tonight! I haven't had this much energy for quite sometime. I was at the gym what seemed like forever tonight and I could of stayed longer, I had to force myself to call it a night. Ahhhhh, I feel like a million bucks. Its so discouraging when you feel like poo and your workouts are subpar because of it.
I dosed 3 BetaA9 tabs about 30 minutes prior to workout and I sipped on my Intra-Aid throughout the workout. I think I may have added a little too much water to it tonight because it tasted severly diluted, still good, but with a little less water it tastes great!
I had an amazing Chest/Forearm Workout:
3x BB Bench Press
4x Cable X-Over
3x Incline DB Press
3x Incline DB Flyes
2x DB Wrist Curls
2x BB Wrist Curls
2x Grip Master Hammer Strength
25minutes/7 miles High Intensity Recumbant Bike
(I could have gone forever on this, I was absolutely drenched but I had so much energy I didn't want to get off. I had so much stamina tonight it was amazing. Definite change of pace from my past 2 weeks of workouts.)
Man, I am on cloud 9. I feel so good. If only I could replicate this everyday and not be tired. I am definitely liking Intra-Aid better than Intrabolic. Not to mention for $3 less, you get 5 more servings of Intra-Aid vs. Intrabolic. I'm finding the light Protein/Carb intra-workout beverage to be slightly superior to the straight BCAA intraworkout beverage also. I'm finding it does a little something extra for endurance during the workout. I know for myself personally, without consuming something intra-workout, I start feeling depleted during my workout. Maybe some people do not experience this, but I certainly do. This is why I love intra-workout products so much, it allows me to output the same intensity throughout my workout.

It appears that I havee somehow forgotten my last shoulder/bi's workout because last night was Back/Tricep and I know I did a Shoulder/Bicep workout since the last. It must have been one of those days I was feeling deathly ill. I apologize for this guys! It won't happen again, I promise you!
I have been consistently dosing the BetaA9 3 caps in the am and 3 caps prior to workout per the bottle. I usually mix my shake up after my first exercise. Delicious as usual, I think
I have gotten down the perfect amount of water to mix with it, about 12 oz of water and its good to go.
3x Lat Pulldown
3x DB Rows
3x Hammer Strength Row Machine
*I know...I know...I gotta get back into doing my Deadlifts
4x Tricep Hammer Strength Pushdown
3x Reverse Cable Pulldown
3x Rope Pulldowns
25 minutes of Recumbant Bike
I was drenched after my workout tonight. Not quite as much energy as my prior workout, but that's ok because it was still pretty good and I was able to push through it.
12-17-2008, 10:14 PM
So you petty much hit back and tris today! Nice job! If you get a chance to do some of those bent over cable rope kickbacks next time they are really nice! Believe it or not I haven't done deadlifts or cleans since college! That's 5 years ago bro! Trully it helps in releasing unbound testosterone and its a great all around leg and back exercise for sure but since I'm gettin older and I've hit weights so hard so long I find that its not really necessery just more of a mind thing! Don't get me wrong, if I could still do them I would but I put so much pressure on my back within 5 years I started to feel it and the older you get the more difficult it is! Just hit it hard and change it up big daddy! Growth will come. Glad your hittin this log with me man!

I sure am B. Last night was another fantastic workout. So much endurance, very comparable to Monday nights workout as it goes for intensity. I've yet to experience any BetaA9 tingles. Is there something wrong with me? Am I doing something wrong? Am I broken? I've been dosing 3 in the am, and 3 prior to workout a long with sipping on Intra-Aid shake during the workout.
5x5 Millitary Press
3x BB Curl
3x Rear Delt Cables
3x Incline DB Curls
3x Lateral Raises
3x Preacher Curl
3x Front Plate Raises
25 min Recumbant Bike
Drenched again, but that of course is the greatest feeling to me. Nothing feels as good as getting off that bike after an intense workout like that. So far everything is going great with the log, Im just wondering why I am not feeling much from the BetaA9. You guys have any thoughts?
12-19-2008, 01:51 PM
You may not be sensitive to the beta... I got 'em like crazy my first workout from just a weak dose... trust me you don't wont the tingles! You could try upping the dose though if you really want to feel 'em...

12-19-2008, 02:03 PM
I will try 9 today fellas....does it matter what I take with it? Should it be on empty stomach or with foods? Or should I throw caution to the wind and eat 15?!
