Don't worry, I have more material!
Update to come - Great workout today, and a bit of a weird stomach issue that I will discuss later. Details to come...
And to answer your question, Custom: I used the powder alone for the sublingual dose yesterday.

You reminded me of my New Years resolution (one of many) to use my university's pool. The broken finger threw a wrench in the plans, but perhaps Saturday. My endurance will be terrible lol.

I'll be interested to hear how the sublingual dosing compares to the regular.
Hope your feeling better...!

Values are on a 1 - 5 scale, with 5 being totally dialed in, while 1 is the opposite.
Mental Alertness - (3.5) Before my dose I say I was at around 3 flat. I decided to dose sublingual again. Half the serving under the tongue (no water); sweet taste, but a very pleasant sweet - Mmmmmmm. I began my workout at 3.5 but quickly got into it and before I could even get my HR up, I was in the zone. Pantera kicking in my ears! I would say I was at a grade 4 MA at this point.
Endurance - (N/A) Nothing unusual to report at this time. Same value as normal.
Explosiveness - (4) All the way around great explosiveness through all of my movements. With me being dialed in, my workout seemed to get better as I progressed.
Feeling during and after dose (including any crashes) - Refer back to MA. I only used half the serving and was dialed in more so than the full dose of yesterday. I am going to stay at the half serving until I become adjusted, or bored - whichever comes first. I am having some stomach issues that seem to be 2-3 hours after initial dose. I am researching certain ingredients that may or may not be causing this. At this point, I am leaning toward the Magnesium (425mg - 106%). Hopefully, this will subside with use. With this side effect, I give it 4.5 in “explosiveness” if you catch my drift… and you would, if you heard the anal orchestra that was performing in my bathroom. Bleh!
* Diet was altered due to stomach issues. I have been drinking a lot more water than normal given the loss that the issue has presented me. I have also been adding Electrolyte packets to every other water that I drink to replenish my system. No Poseidon due to its Magnesium content.
* Thursday - Chest & Core (No cardio)
Exercises performed: DB Flat press 4 sets (6-10 reps)
Incline push-ups 3 sets (35/35/30)
Ball switch push-up (Failure)
Finished off with 20lb medicine ball pullover while stabilizing on a ridge ball to failure
* Pictures to be up by Monday; however, I will not be doing any posing. Just relaxed and in the anatomical position.
Motivation Metal for the day.

I hope the stomach problems get sorted out soon, my friend.

I've noticed the Magnesium issues with the bicarbonates from JP8 (atleast that's what I think it was in there). I'm getting my hands on my Ultima tomorrow, so we can compare notes. I noticed the GI issues decreased after about a week or use, so lets hope that applies to you as well.

* Quick update: Stomach issues persist. I will refrain from taking my serving today of Ultima to see if he stops.

Thanks for asking - I took the entire day off to rest and watch movies. It rained the entire day anyway. I had to go get some fluid yesterday (IV) to replenish my system better. Man, that was the worst 2 days! I did not take my dose yesterday or today; however, I will brave it tomorrow. I'm really hoping that it's not the Magnesium, or the supplement for that matter. It's feeling relatively normal considering what it's felt like the past few days.
Once again, thanks for taking the time to ask., when most could care less.
I did not take any pictures today. Hell, would you if you were in my shoe(s)? Hahahaa! Definitely will tomorrow, no doubt about that. I just don't feel well enough to do so right now. I am going to hook an IV up in an hour and get 1 more bag in for the day. And yes, I do it myself. Given my profession, things of this nature (IV, shot care, etc) are a specialty for me know. The military trained me well! LOL - I am, however, using a butterfly needle for my hook in. Trauma1 will understand that!

Curious have you ever had this reaction to Magnesium prior?? Have you used other pre workout product that have Magnesium with similar results??

When it comes to IV's, i have no problem saying i have some pretty damn good skills. I'd have used something large bore, like a 16 gauge angiocath on you, soldier, haha.
Get well soon, buddy.

Are you taking any kind of multi-vitamin or any other supplement high in magnesium?
While it is certainly possible ULTIMA could be te culprit, I would say it is unlikely. Albion dosed the MCC as high as 8 grams without GI issues, and we have had no instanced or problems oursleves, thus far.
If possible, try taking with a little food and see if that helps.

But, from what I understand, there is a stomach bug going around so it may just be that.

Where are you located Iron? I am planning to start back rucking a few miles a week, would be nice to team up with someone. I plan to keep my ruck light, maybe a 60-100lbs. One day on flat terrain, and maybe 2 cross country. I hope I can maintain the 4km or more an hour standard. Anyone in the Houston Texas or surrounding areas that wanna go rucking hit me up.

I really wish that my camera was not dead when I returned from the gym a little while ago; the pump I had was just insane! I'm charging it now so that I can take some pictures after tomorrows workout.
Full update to be posted later.
