    As Sean said DOMS is Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness. DOMS is quite common 2-7 days post-training and expected after exercise. I don't usually get it if I am using IGF-2, and it's NOT fun, believe me.

  4. Thumbs up Review of Millennium Sports Technologies' Cre-02


    I finally used the bottle of Cre-02 that has been patiently waiting amongst my "to be used" supplement stash since December 2008...


    What is it?

    http://store.anabolicminds.com/photo...E-O2_large.jpg

    * 100% stable and absorbable
    * Zero side effects
    * Maximize strength
    * Increase oxygen utilization
    * Decrease oxygen debt
    * Maximize ATP
    * Maximize endurance
    * Increase VO2max

    For write-up see The Official AnabolicMinds Supplement Store.


    Taste: 10/10. Cre-02 does not have a taste. Being tasteless is the same as having an awesome taste, IMO.

    Side Effects: 10/10. I experienced none of the unpleasant side effects including but not limited to bloating, nausea, or water retention, that others have reported as 'common' when using creatine products.

    Strength: 7/10. My strength has gradually increased each week over the time that I have used Cre-02. However, given that I was gradually building back up to my Maintenance training levels after quite a while not being able to train properly, this was to be expected.

    Oxygen Utilization/Debt: 7/10. For the first time I did NOT use a creatine product on EVERY training day, instead mostly using only on resistance training days. I DID notice that on the days when I dosed Cre-02 my cardio seemed a little easier. I was gradually able to push myself harder as the weeks went on; but there is still quite aways to go before I am back at where I was a few months ago.

    Endurance: 9/10. My training sessions over the last few weeks of using Cre-02 have been longer than usual, lasting a good 2.5-3 hours in total from the time that I start my am cardio to the time that I finish my post-weights cardio (something that has started happening only over the last few weeks). Until recently post-weights cardio was NOT something that I would do, but it has become a regular part of my training routine now and I have the energy to do it at least 3 days a week post-weights.

    Recovery: 7/10. Recovery between resistance training and post-weights cardio has been pretty good. However, recovery day-to-day has not been as good, with DOMS being experienced up to a few days after that particular session. I know that DOMS is normal, but I usually never get it unless I have just started something new, and even then I would only usually get it for the first week. I have been consistently getting DOMS for the last few weeks, and even after CARDIO (something that has never happened before now).

    Overall: 8.8/10. I was highly impressed with my time using samples of Cre-02, which led me to use a full bottle. Upon completion of the bottle the product is still good. I believe that it would better serve me when I am at or above Maintenance training levels, though.

    Would I use it again? Yes. However, I prefer to use creatine pre AND post-resistance training, instead of just pre, as is done with Cre-02.

    Would I recommend? Yes. Cre-02 is one of the top three creatine products that I would recommend.

  5. Review of Anabolic Innovations' Glycobol


    I started using Glycobol three weeks ago, having my last dose yesterday...


    What is it?

    http://store.anabolicminds.com/photo...obol_large.jpg

    * Promotes muscle mass, strength and endurance.
    * Encourages fat loss and prevents fat accumulation.
    * Improves recovery time by rapid glycogen resynthesis.
    * Provides lasting "pump", hardness and vascularity.
    * Drives amino acid and creatine uptake in muscle.
    * Increases muscle protein synthesis and inhibits breakdown.
    * Controls blood sugar and maximizes nutrient utilization.
    * Potent synergism with endogenous endocrine hormones.
    * Strong anti-oxidant protects liver, lipid and cardio health.

    For write-up see Anabolic Innovations: Glycobol.


    Taste: 10/10. Glycobol has no taste. As mentioned previously, having no taste gets the same rating from me as having the best taste.

    Body Composition: 8/10. Pre-Glycobol I was 53.81kg (i.e. 118.4lb) at 15% bodyfat (BF). Post-Glycobol I am 54.64kg (i.e. 120.2lb) at 13.3% BF. A total gain of 0.81kg (i.e. 1.8lb) with a loss of 1.7% BF. This means that I have lost 0.81kg (i.e. 1.7734lb) of BF and gained 1.62kg (i.e. 3.5734 lb) of lean body mass over the last three weeks. Given my diet over the last three weeks, and the fact that I have gradually been building back up to my Maintenance training level, having lost just over 0.5% BF a week and gaining some muscle mass for a reasonable recomp. However, that Glycobol was NOT the only supplement that I was using with others including Cre-02, White Flood, and Sustain Alpha, and I was certainly NOT using it for recomping, and it would have only contributed towards some of this result.

    Endurance: 7/10. My endurance is pretty high as it is. Endurance has been pretty good though, considering. However, Glycobol was not being used by me for this purpose and I was using other products which had this effect.

    Strength: 7/10. My strength has gradually increased over the last three weeks using Glycobol. Given that I was gradually building back up to my Maintenance training levels after quite a while not being able to train properly, this was to be expected. Also, Glycobol was not being used by me for this purpose and I was using other products which had this effect.

    Muscle Hardness: 7/10. My muscles have been harder over the last three weeks. However, I did not use Glycobol pre or post training, and I have also been regularly training again; as well as using other supplements such as White Flood.

    Pump and Vascularity: 7/10. Pumps is something that I believe Glycobol compounded on with White Flood. When I first started using Glycobol I started having an almost perpetual pump in my arms, and it lasted for quite a while, becoming so painful over a course of three days that I could barely lift or move my arms because of the pain. Whilst I had been using White Flood, that particular pump did not start until later in the day of having my first dose of Glycobol. As time went on the pump became less pronounced, but still lingered a little...As far as vascularity goes, as expected I have great vascularity after a high carbohydrate meal; no surprises there. And I generally have pretty good vascularity anyways, regardless of leanness...

    Recovery: 7/10. Recovery has not been the best over the last three weeks. As it is, Glycobol is not something that would have aided in my recovery. I never used it pre or post-training, but before high carbohydrate meals, usually later in the day or at night.

    Nutrient Repartitioning: 3/10. This effect was just not there. I did not notice that Glycobol was doing anything. It certainly did not have the strong effects that SLIN did, or help with the higher carbohydrate meals like NeoVar Recomped does.

    Overall: 4/10. The purpose for using Glycobol was for its insulin mimetic effects (as I was using other products specifically for every other 'effect' that Glycobol was supposed to have had) and I was highly disappointed with the product. Therefore this is what I am predominantly basing my overall score on; hence the reason it is low.

    Would I use it again? No. As far as insulin mimetics are concerned, Glycobol is not one of the stronger products that I have used and does not even come close for me to the results that others have experienced on it.

    Would I recommend? No.

  7. Day 298


    1455 - Spin Bike:
    20 min @ 40km/hr pace

    1520 - Full-Body (1 min recovery):
    1. BB Back Squats 1 x 50
    2. BB Good Mornings 1 x 50
    3. V-Bar Close-Grip Seated Row 1 x 50

    10. Plank 1 x 1 min

    1608 - Stepper:
    20 min @ 8 floors/min pace

    1715 - Stretch 20 min.


    Motivation: Highly motivated, despite feeling like sh*ite when I woke up.

    Focus and Stamina: Focus great, so much so that I barely noticed the time passing...Stamina fine...

    Energy: 4 scoops of White Flood gives me about the energy that I would get from 2 caps of RPM. However, the energy does not last even half as long, and ~3 hours post-dosing I started fading...

    Endurance: Excellent.

    Strength: This session was NOT about strength.

    Explosiveness and Power: Still have explosiveness on command...Not really a 'power' session...

    Pumps and Vascularity: Pump, yes, from the very first set during resistance training...Vascularity increased as the session went on...

    Recovery: Feel ok...Wanted the 20 minutes on the Stepper after resistance training to finish quickly...

    Body Composition and Look: Weight has dropped a little from the last couple of days...

    Appetite: Normal.

    Stress: A 7 on the stress scale of 1 to 10...

    Libido: Later...

    Immune System: Didn't feel so great on waking today. Whole body ached and moved slowly. Eyes bloodshot again. Stuffy nose and slight headache.

    Other Effects: The Beta-Alanine tingles started ~20 minutes after dosing White Flood, and stayed on and off over the following few hours...I was sweating more than usual during the first half of my resistance training session today, which I can attribute to the White Flood, as intensity of my training, cardio pre-resistance training, and the temperature in the weights room were no different than usual.

    Other Notes: Going to try FIVE scoops of White Flood tomorrow to see what happens...My tub of White Flood will finish in two days, complete with my Final Review of White Flood.

  8. I love white flood, the GABA is a really neat addition.
  9. Day 299


    1534 - HIIT Gazelle:
    a. 4 min easy
    b. 8 x 20 sec effort/10 sec easy
    c. 4 min easy

    1549 - Stretch 25 min.


    Motivation: A flat day today.

    Focus and Stamina: Focus not the best ever...Stamina ok...

    Energy: 5 scoops of White Flood kicked in within 20 minutes and gave energy that lasted about an hour. Crashed pretty bad 80 minutes after dosing (hence why no resistance session was done today)...

    Endurance: Ok.

    Strength: N/A.

    Explosiveness and Power: The Gazelle is not the best thing to be doing HIIT and/or efforts on; running or cycling or boxing is much better...

    Pumps and Vascularity: Pump no...Vascularity nothing out of the ordinary...

    Recovery: Feeling yesterday's high-rep resistance session...Feeling quite shattered pre-White Flood and after crashing...

    Body Composition and Look: ...

    Appetite: VERY high calorie day today.

    Stress: A 7 on the stress scale of 1 to 10...

    Libido: Very early this morning, yes...

    Immune System: Bloodshot eyes, stuffy nose, and weird feeling persisting on waking. Not feeling anywhere near my best and not quite right.

    Other Effects: The Beta-Alanine tingles started almost immediately after dosing White Flood and were VERY strong, almost like the very first time I had White Flood. The tingles lasted 3.5 hours after dosing, through face, arms, glutes, legs (i.e. almost all over) and making me feel itchy in legs...Crashed ~80 minutes after dosing...

    Other Notes: Tomorrow is my last day of White Flood. I have 3 scoops left.

  13. Day 300 - Day 30/Last Day of White Flood


    This week's Day OFF...Seeing if using White Flood helps with focus and energy alone for mental tasks...


    Motivation: There.

    Focus and Stamina: Focus good; got work tonight...Stamina as usual...

    Energy: Energy is there, but muted...

    Endurance: N/A.

    Strength: N/A.

    Explosiveness and Power: N/A.

    Pumps and Vascularity: Pump none...Vascularity as normal...

    Recovery: Adductors are still a little tender from Sunday's high-rep session, but everything else is fine...Only slept ~5.5 hours today (insomnia and no sleep last night, which meant passing out in the morning), which is considerably LESS than what I HAVE been sleeping lately...

    Body Composition and Look: Got told that I am noticeably leaning up, especially back and midsection. I can see the difference, too...An interesting note is that my body composition (8-skinfolds) done this afternoon was 11.8% BF, whereas a few days ago it was 13.3% BF (albeit it wasn't a full ISAK proforma like today was and less skinfolds were done). If I were to go based on looking in the mirror (and the accuracy of such tests with less data) I would say that the 11.8% BF is more accurate...

    Appetite: Good.

    Stress: A 7 on the stress scale of 1 to 10...

    Libido: Early in the morning it was HIGH!

    Immune System: Aside from a slight stuffy nose and dizziness on moving from seated to standing positions, fine.

    Other Effects: Minor Beta-Alanine tingles, but nothing near what I had yesterday and not lasting very long at all.

  17. Review of Controlled Labs' White Flood (White Raspberry Flavour)


    Yesterday I finished my tub of White Flood in the exciting new flavour of White Raspberry...Note that unlike usual, where I would use a preworkout product EVERY day, I only used White Flood on resistance training days (with two exceptions)...This review is based on my experience with White Flood over the last 30 days...


    What is it?



    * Fast absorbing and fast acting
    * Increase focus, concentration, and stamina
    * Focused, relaxed energy without the jitters
    * Increase Endurance
    * Strength gains
    * Improve explosiveness and power
    * Incredible pumps and vasodilation
    * Nutrient delivery and recovery
    * Enhance fat metabolism
    * Stimulate muscle anabolism

    For more information read Controlled Labs - White Flood.


    Smell: 9.5/10. As soon as I open the tub the scent of magnolias fills my senses. There is the faintest hint of raspberry, but to me the scent is predominantly floral. I love it; it just makes me want to keep sniffing it, LOL. This is the BEST smelling product I have ever used.

    Taste: 9/10. White Flood in White Raspberry tastes strongly like raspberry sorbet, and is definitely one of the nicest tasting products that I have ever used. However, the first time that I dosed White Flood there WAS another taste underneath the raspberry that hit about halfway through consumption that was highly unpleasant; albeit I soon discovered that if I drank it quickly then that undertone taste was not there at all.

    Solubility: 10/10. White Flood dissolves almost instantly on contact with water and needs only a few shakes before it is all gone. There is no trace of powder and no clumps or excess left in the water or on the bottom of the shaker.

    Texture: 10/10. Like fruit juice diluted with water.

    Focus and Stamina: 9/10. For mental focus White Flood provides that concentration and 'locked on' mentality. Mental and physical stamina seemed well matched.

    Energy: 5/10. For the last 26 days of my use of White Flood I did NOT use RPM; therefore I got an accurate experience of how White Flood affected me re energy. At 2-3 scoops White Flood did nothing for me re energy, and I had to chew ThermoGum quite a few times to get close to the kind of energy that I have using RPM. 4 scoops gave me the energy that I get using RPM, and is about my sweet spot re energy effects for White Flood. 5 scoops gave me a short burst of energy. However, with both 4 and 5 scoops of White Flood use I crashed: ~3 hours post 4-scoops and a mere ~80 minutes post-5 scoops. As far as energy is concerned, White Flood did not do it for me.

    Endurance: 9/10. My endurance is already pretty high. However, using White Flood I was just progressing week-by-week back into training back up to Maintenance training levels. Most weeks I performed 2-4 post-weights cardio sessions, something that is NOT a part of my usual Maintenance training (although my pre-weights cardio was often shorter than Maintenance levels), and I had the endurance to complete it post-weights (and I DO push myself during my weights).

    Strength: 7/10. My strength has slowly increased over the period that I use White Flood. However, given the fact that I was almost starting back at training from nothing, this is an expected natural progression. The one exercise that my strength did NOT increase on (and still is not anywhere near close to what it was) is with Close-Grip Pull-Ups.

    Explosiveness and Power: 7/10. I am not as explosive as I used to be and my power is somewhat diminished (to be expected though, considering). With White Flood, I had the explosiveness and power when I wanted it during resistance training. However, re cardio (HIIT and otherwise) I only started being able to 'kick it' again properly during the second half of my use of White Flood.

    Pumps and Vascularity: 8.5/10. The pumps I got on White Flood were like nothing I have ever experienced before. Funny thing is that most of them were NOT experienced during RESISTANCE training. A few days into using White Flood I had shoulder and arm pumps so strong that I could barely move my arms without extreme pain; this lasted a few days before settling down. However, after that the pumps experienced on White Flood were strong and sometime painful. I got pretty strong pumps in my shoulders and arms every time I ran and they would last quite a long time post-cardio...Vascularity was pretty high most of the time, especially if I was warm, and the veins trying to climb out of my skin were most noticeable after running and between sets during resistance training.

    Recovery: 5/10. My recovery on White Flood was not that great. I got DOMS after almost every resistance session right up until the last few times, especially strong through my chest, shoulders, and arms, and sometimes my hamstrings and adductors. I was still sleeping a lot (and my sleeping patterns changed all over again). My recovery didn't start improving until the last weeks of using White Flood.

    Body Composition: 8/10. Pre-White Flood I was 53.81kg (i.e. 118.4lb) at 15% bodyfat (BF). Post-White Flood I am 54.64kg (i.e. 120.2lb) at 11.8% BF. Although I GAINED 0.82kg (i.e. 1.8lb), I LOST 3.2% BF. This means that I LOST 1.63kg (i.e. 3.5784lb) of BF and GAINED 2.44kg (i.e. 5.3764lb) of lean body mass. Most noticeable is the loss in BF from back and midsection. Muscle mass gains are obvious in shoulders, arms, and legs. Girths remained UNchanged from pre to post-White Flood...Please note that I was also using Sustain Alpha during my use of White Flood, and was gradually building back up to Maintenance training levels over that period, which could have contributed to these results...However, despite that, this is the most successful recomp I have ever done.

    Other Effects: 8/10. The first time I used White Flood I experienced STRONG Beta-Alanine tingles, starting ~10 minutes after dosing and lasting for a good 50-60 minutes once they started. The tingles were pretty bad in my face and ears (which I have never felt them in before); I felt like my face was burning up and it became a little more flushed than the usual ruddiness from exercise...After the initial dosing the Beta-Alanine tingles pretty much all but disappeared; I would notice them sometimes for a few minutes ~40 minutes after having White Flood. Beta-Alanine tingles did not really change from using 2 scoops to using 3 scoops of White Flood, except that with 3 scoops I experienced them in my legs and glutes instead of in my face and ears. Using 4 and 5 scoops of White Flood, the Beta-Alanine tingles were as strong as after my initial dosing of White Flood, but lasted much much longer, with post-5 scoops starting almost immediately and lasting for 3.5 hours!...Aside from the Beta-Alanine tingles, (which were to be expected) I did not experience any other 'side' effects from White Flood.

    Overall: 8/10. White Flood is a preworkout product. For me the best parts about the product re non-effects were the smell and taste; and re effects were the mental focus and concentration, endurance, and recomp. I was highly disappointed with the energy and recovery aspects of the product, as these are, IMO, two of the primary reasons for using White Flood; but it was solid almost everywhere else.

    Would I use it again? Yes. However, I would stack it with another preworkout product such as RPM, so that I got the benefit from the White Flood, as well as having the energy to get through (and so that a tub lasted longer, since at 4-5 scoops a dose it would only last 10-12 days).

    Would I recommend? Yes.

  20. Initial Impressions: Liposolv


    Better Body Sports - Liposolv

    Smell - N/A: Liposolv smelt like alcohol; nothing else.

    Feel - 10/10: A quick cool touch, like that you get when you get water sprayed on you. Liposolv is not greasy or sticky after application.

    Spreadability - N/A: Liposolv is not a lotion, but a spray. Even if I try and spread it immediately after application to anywhere but the place where the spray hit my skin, it does NOT spread there.

    Drying - 10/10: Liposolv was dry in mere seconds after spraying it on my skin.

    Other Effects - 10/10: I did not experience anything out of the ordinary. I did not feel weird, nor did my skin turn white, as was warned could happen.

During resistance training today the clicking and the sensations it caused was annoying, and that, along with my lacklustre mood, meant that I cut the session short...Last day of Sustain Alpha today...

  23. Talking Review of Primordial Performance's Sustain Alpha


    I have just finished my tube of Sustain Alpha...


    What is it?



    * Increased testosterone production
    * Tremendous influence over body composition, mental performance, the immune system, cholesterol levels, and sexual performance
    * Increase virility, erectile function, and influences prostate health

    For write-up see Primordial Performance - Sustain Alpha.


    Smell: 5/10. Sustain Alpha smells like a mix of herbs and something else. Not an unpleasant smell, but not the best, either.

    Feel: 8/10. Sustain Alpha is non-greasy. There was no tingling, warming, or iciness on application.

    Spreadability: 10/10. Sustain Alpha spread over and into my skin quite well. There was no residue after application. Each pump covered quite a large area and with 5 pumps I was able to easily cover my entire body except my breasts (I did not want Sustain Alpha on them).

    Testosterone Levels: N/A. Although I would have liked to see the changes in my hormone levels from pre to post-Sustain Alpha, I was not able to get bloods done this time.

    Body Composition: 8/10. Pre-Sustain Alpha I was 53.81kg (i.e. 118.4lb) at 15% bodyfat (BF). Post-Sustain Alpha I am 54.64kg (i.e. 120.2lb) at 11.8% BF. Although I GAINED 0.82kg (i.e. 1.8lb), I LOST 3.2% BF. This means that I LOST 1.63kg (i.e. 3.5784lb) of BF and GAINED 2.44kg (i.e. 5.3764lb) of lean body mass. Most noticeable is the loss in BF from back and midsection. Muscle mass gains are obvious in shoulders, arms, and legs. Girths remained UNchanged from pre to post-Sustain Alpha...Please note that I was also using White Flood during my use of Sustain Alpha, and was gradually building back up to Maintenance training levels over that period, which could have contributed to these results...However, despite that, this is the most successful recomp I have ever done.

    Mental Performance: 9/10. Mental Performance has been pretty good whilst on Sustain Alpha. I have had a lot on my plate re this area and was highly stressed for the first few weeks of using Sustain Alpha, but I have managed to get all done as required and to a high standard.

    Immune System: N/A. During the period that I was using Sustain Alpha I had to have a few immunizations done and I experienced a few minor reactions to a couple of them. The reactions did not last long. My sleeping patterns have not helped in this area, though...I would have to have had blood tests pre and post-Sustain Alpha, as well as pre and post each immunization, to see whether or not the product made a difference here.

    Cholesterol Levels: N/A. Although I would have liked to see if there were any changes in my cholesterol (LDL, HDL, and Total) levels from pre to post-Sustain Alpha, I was not able to get bloods done this time. Please note that I was using Krillpid Balance throughout the entire use of Sustain Alpha to help balance my cholesterol levels.

    Sexual Performance: N/A. I cannot really make any comments here, as when I first started Sustain Alpha I was not having sex, nor had I ever had it. I was married ~2 weeks into my use of Sustain Alpha, and even then, I have nothing to compare re sex to pre-Sustain Alpha.

    Virility, Erectile Function, and Prostate Health: N/A. This does NOT apply to me, as I am NOT a male!

    Other Notes: I noticed on warmer days or when I got heated quite easily, that Sustain Alpha sometimes left a yellow stain on my white clothes (and this was well after I had showered and applied it)...At 5 pumps an application Sustain Alpha is meant to last 23 applications. However, at 5 pumps an application my tube lasted 33 applications, which is quite a bit more than it said it would.

    Overall: 8/10. I enjoyed my time on Sustain Alpha. Although I was using other products, the period that I used Sustain Alpha over was the most successful recomp period that I have ever done; and by this I mean that I gained lean mass and lost BF at a ratio of 1.5:1, which is a lot better than usual, where I normally gain reasonable lean mass and only lose a minute amount of BF. Not to mention that at 5 days on/2 days off Sustain Alpha lasts me 6.5 weeks, making it quite affordable to use.

    Would I use it again? Yes. This is the perfect addition to a natural Growth Hormone and Testosterone boosting stack, and I was actually using several different such products during my time with it.

    Would I recommend? Yes. Sustain Alpha would make a great addition to a natural testosterone boosting stack, or as part of PCT. It's also fine for females to use.

  25. Day 305


    Due to circumstances, no training was done today...Means that I will be raring and ready to go tomorrow!!!

    1249 - Spin Bike:
    20 min @ 100-102 rpm


    Sleep - Time and Quality: ~2000-2230 and ~0530-0857 (waking at 0800 and 0840), so nearly 6 hours sleep. Passed out during a movie at ~2000. I was trying to go to sleep as 'bedtime' from ~0400, and was just not able to, getting up and down all the time. In the end I went upstairs and slept on the sofa...Dreams were vivid and weird. Sleep deep when there. Woke not feeling great at all...

    Motivation: Even though I most definitely did NOT feel like training, I DID. And pushed myself HARD to boot. I have given myself a DEADLINE!

    Mental Alertness/Focus: There, once I had been up for ~10 minutes.

    Energy: Energy was blah for the first hour or so of being up. Started picking up once I had stretched.

    Stress: Medium.

    Libido: High.

    Joints: Left knee ached for the first 6-8 minutes of HIIT, but went away as I kept going...Lower back started aching after the downhill part during HIIT. Back has been clicking a lot lately...Left wrist was in absolute agony during resistance session...

    Endurance: Excellent. I could have easily KEPT going after the gym.

    Strength: Progress from last week.

    Muscle Hardness/Fullness: Muscles look and feel full, but not quite hard again yet.

    Recovery: Feeling pretty good after today's training. No hamstring DOMS yet. Looking forward to being able to push myself to the point of no return and NOT suffering for it the next day or so!

    Body Composition and Look: Holding quite a bit of water weight today. Feeling very uncomfortable in my body, actually. Head down, arse up, and eyes on the prize!

    Appetite: It's time to be GOOD.

    Immune Function: Eyes were bloody this morning on waking. Felt so shot when I woke up, like I had a head cold and something else all rolled into one. I know that it is my poor sleeping habits over the last few weeks that is contributing primarily to this.

    Other Notes: I have decided that I will allow my body to continue to run on NZ time. This means that I will be back on my regular schedule, but my regular schedule on NZ time (i.e. 0300 in NZ is 0800 in the US - this is my waking time; 2100-2200 in NZ is 0200-0300 in the US - this is my bedtime); since I am having such a hard time trying to adjust my body to doing this at 0300 and 2100-2200 US time.
