    Putting Molecular Nutritions tingle-free Peak beta to the test


    My name is John , 28 years old and am prepping for the 2009 Nga night of champions show. Nothing really else to say. want to know anything just ask. anyone who knows contest prep knows calories are down and protein is high esp during this time!

    Goal for this log: To be objective and give an honest feedback of how Peak beta Works

    Dosing : for the most part following the bozes directions which are week one 3 capsules per day
    week 2 3-4 capsules
    week 3 4-5
    week 4 and beyond 5-6 ..may change it ..These things are horse pills!

    if I change dosing Ill write it down

    why I choose to log this product: Beta alanine has worked for me for 100 % certain in the past and I owe Molecular Nutrition a log and I beleive this is the best product for my goals.

    why I think It'll work: because beta alanine has worked for me in the past greatly. In addition this is tingle free and time released , six hour time-released beta alanine, which Im excited to see how it works.

    what I expect: In Short to help with endurance and keeping strength levels up and reducing acid buildup in muscles helping me get more intensity out of my training.

    Training schedule-cardio is done first thing in the morning
    day 1 cardio ......weights
    day 2 cardio .....weights
    day 3 cardio
    day 4 cardio....weights
    day 5 cardio....weights
    day 6 cardio
    day 7 rest

    Im excited to get started, Welcome to my log, and it is meant to be a review of how well Peak Beta works.

    No not at all. The Peak Beta by MN is one of the few time-released formulas of Beta-alanine available.

    Because of the nature of a time-released formulation, you avoid the paresthesia (tingling) that comes from other Beta Alanine products and you don't have to keep dosing it as frequently.

    Also the type of Beta Alanine sourced in Peak Beta (Carnosyn technology) raises muscle carnosine levels by ~80%, owning to this technology you can put more carnosine in per dose, leading to greater effects and not get the paresthesia!

    Yep. This product just simply rocks. I would have even gave it another name if it were me. Not even beta alanine. It just is that good..

    Im excited about it and think it will give me an edge over my competition, which any little edge can determine whether or not one places higher.

    Doing three per day right now and I love that theres no paresthesia. I think/feel this works better than beta alanine just by the knowledge UKStrength presented.

    A1 Chest Shoulders Triceps
    Incline Barbell press 45 and 10 (on each side)- 20x's rest pauses
    Low Incline Widegrip smith windowmaker 45 - 20 x's

    Front Smith press(to upper chest) 35+5=22
    Machine side lateral machine windowmaker 110lbs- 20 x's

    Dips(all the way down and all the way back up, no half or 3/4 movements total stretch) 19
    Tricep dip machine windowmaker 100lbs- 30 x's

    C1 Calves, Hamstrings, Quads
    Seated Calve raises 45+10=10
    (pre-contest style)
    Dumbbell between feet windowmaker(pause at top and hold) 35 lbs - 20 x's

    Seated Hamstring Dumbbell curl (+3) 25 lbs- 23 x's

    Front squat(to 11.5 inch box) 45 +5= 4 x's...Then decided to use this box as a touch and go and not a true box pause, rest and explode box squat, its a new blast and fine tuning training)
    45=10 x's

    Hanging abs knees to chest 12x's
    breathe-ins-5

    stretches
    Top hamstring stretch 60 seconds
    Quad stretch 60 seconds

    Thoughts: Bodyfat levels are already decently lean and have about 15 lbs to lose to be totally ripped. Im not going all out on intensity during this pre-contest preperation and risking an injury. The rotation of a1 then c1 is because Im spacing these out due to too much strain on the elbow. so you'll see a c b in this order.

    Have you had a previous injury in that area?

    I hate elbow injuries, that joint is so pivotal to a number of exercises, it really buggers up your training no end!

    Never did GVT did do max-ot for three years thats a good program. I wouldnt recommend the 4-6 rep range for triceps and biceps though thats over time wore down joints happen.

    In max-ot the reps are 4-6 when you get the 6 you add more weight and keep in the 4-6. arms got up to 18.5 (without any hormones at the time I was 23 years old in 2004 [bodyfat was also a good 5 % higher than as well) and now cant go heavy there an inch to and a half smaller. I dont measure much at all.

    4-6 tricep extensions is hell on the joints for three -four years strait. also 4-6 biceps curls. sure maybe sometimes but not all the time for years on end.

    Im rambeling ....

    Nice, I'll keep an eye out for you. I'd love to compete in the next couple of years, so I'm watching others' contest prep like a hawk in case it can help with my own.

    Purple Wrath is good

    Peak beta is in a whole nother catagory than regular beta alanine. I didnt think it really was I thought it was just a no tingle beta alanine. One capsule of six hour released beta alanine which equates to better carnosyn levels in analyzing how it works.

    It really goes to show if you want to know you have to expirience it yourself

    Took my three pills today...the high carb day yesterday really helped strength levels. As my bodyfat continues to come down this is where The Peak beta will help out some and I think its working right now.

    Upon awaking:

    one hour of strait cardio in a pool lower intensity getting that breathing going! I had to pace myself and held back some because at one point I went too hard and had to back. off.

    after two meals before headed to Gym

    A2 Chest shoulders triceps
    Low Incline dumbell press 60 lbs- 26 x's
    Low Incline widegrip smith widowmaker 45+2.5=18

    Incline Incline barbell press 35(on each side)= 25 x's
    Nautilus lateral machine windowmaker 120 lbs- 20 x's

    Reverse grip bench press smith 45+10+5+2.5=22
    Nautilus dip machine widowmaker 110- 40 x's

    Stretches chest stretch, tricep stretch, shoulder stretch

    Nutrition is in this log , if your ot interested all i have to say Im doing my best with nutrition and trying to keep it around my bmr which is like around 2,200 k's Smeton's countdown to NGA Nashville

    Swimming is an absolute art form, if I don't do it for a while it destroys me! I'm left absolutely breathless.

    I prefer skipping for cardio nowadays, more fun

    not just swimming...running in water. Running in a 4-5 foot pool and it takes all the stress off the hips/knees etc from the elipitical, treadmill, walking on flat ground or even bike.

    if I do too much ground cardio, or eliptical , in the past my hips, knees hurt. The water is much better if one has these problems

    You've just given me a great idea for cardio whilst I'm on holiday! I'd totally forgotten about pool running.

    Do you just do laps of the pool? or sprint the breadth HIIT style?

    This Peak beta is solid. Again, a catagory above the regular beta alanine. If youve got the money and want extra performance get in on this stuff.

    heres a little tip: beta alanine is better absorbed with carbohydrates.also an interesting study http://www.ergo-log.com/balanineaging.html

    All of the above. 4-5 feet is best for the running.

    C2 Calves, hamstrings, Quadiceps, abs

    Hack squat calves 45+10+5(on one side)= 12 x's..failed on 13
    (pre contest DC style)

    Leg Press(medium grip: full range of motion) 4 plates=12, 4 plates=15 x's

    Hack Squat strait leg dead lift(wide stance) 45+25=20 x's

    decline sit ups- 10 lbs 21 x's

    Hamstring stretch 60 seconds
    Quad stretch 60 seconds

    B2 forearms, biceps, backwidth, back thickness

    Lying down cable curls 30 lbs- 23 x's

    Seated ez bar curls 20 lbs(each side)- 22x's rest pauses
    Barbell preacher curl windowmaker-16 x's

    Pulldown(widegrip, motion is squeezing lats together at bottom of movement and almost flexing while they stretch up) 120 lbs=23 rest pauses
    Pulldown windowmaker 110lbs-9 x's

    yates underhand Barbell row(squeezing lower lats together , holding) 45-10 x's, 45+10=8
    high pulley wondowmaker 60 lbs- 16 x's
    stretches back hang 60 seconds, biceps stretch 60 seconds

    30 minutes low intensity cardio

    getting my dosing in.

    a little frustrated at times with the weights im using as I used to use a lot more; however I am going off an injury wqhere I didnt do upper body for 6-10 plus months and focused on working the muscles, where before I was basically just going though the motion focusing on my ego and how much weight I did. In the long run learning this form is better for musclegrowth and the weights will rise over time probally to where they were and even better.

    regardless I have some good size on me from my powerlifting days that seems to be staying on my frame, even though I havent powerlifted in two plus years.

    today off

    a few observations My muscles dont seem to be getting as sore as normal , even than with regular beta alanine.

    like last time I trained my back wasnt even sore at all the next day or at all. thats strange especially after I do the back hang for 60 seconds. I know beta alanine helps with lactid acid buildup..and this stuff is 80 % more effective UKStrength said earlier in this thread.

    I think it has kicked in for me.

    I think my post injury gains have kind of halted..and now it may be time to step up the poundage a bit. Im not training to failure on all exercises, I like to cycle intensity. thats a whole another subject though.

    anyways muscles havent really been sore and I think its could be high reps..of course it is pre-contest and Ill keep rep ranges a bit higher, but I think my musles could benefit from heavy weights this pre-contest so Ill think Ill start upping the poundage gradually. of course still being cautious coming off an injury. these things take time.

    Great to see the log up.


    Injuries definitely suck. I tore my RC and then thought that I was 100% better and tried benching again when it was WAAAY too early to get back into it and ended up tearing my RC yet again ... the longer you take and the more cautious you are, the better.

    Good luck

    For sure! do you pinch the shoulder blades together on presses. I stopped flat bench three years ago because I had problems with it. Havent done it since

    today was 1 hour and 30 minutes low-sometimes moderate intensity cardio. I was going to do weights but didnt think i would benefit since low carb, and just done weights three days in a row.

    dips19 x's
    tricep windowmaker, nautilus dip machine 150 lbs- 20 x's

    stretches chest 20 lbs, triceps 10 lbs,shoulders- all 60 seconds

    It depends on the weight. I have to pinch my shoulder blades when I go above 250 lbs. I put 315 on for the first time in a while and got 3 reps but felt like my shoulders were BURNIING. Sometimes after a set I'll have to slowly relax my arms after replacing the bar. If I un-tense my arms too quickly I'll get a shooting pain up to my ears.

    Fun stuff
