Rosie's Review of PAL's Leviathan Reloaded
Last week I finished 8 weeks of PAL's Leviathan Reloaded (stacked with RPN's DCP). Because I stacked them together it could be difficult to say which product produced which results re body composition. However, there were some specific effects from Leviathan Reloaded.
What is it?
* Promotes neuro intensification and aggression focus
* Fat loss whilst preserving muscle
* Allows optimal lean muscle mass gains
* Overall muscle hardness
* Curbs appetite
* Curbs energy crashes from high carbohydrate meals
Mood: N/A. My mood was up and down like a rollercoaster over the last 8 weeks. However it is due more to circumstances, events and training more than anything else; and no product can make me feel better (or worse).
Focus: 7/10. I have had AWESOME focus and aggression, especially for training. Noet that I was also using RPM, which I know to have a smooth focused effect on me, so that may have contributed to some of this.
Energy: 8/10. My energy was all over the place; some days I was bouncing off the walls and other days I was just shattered and fatigued. However, when it came to training I ALWAYS had the energy to do the required sessions (i.e. am cardio and resistance training). On the days that I dosed Leviathan Reloaded with RPM I noticed the MOST kick re energy for training. I experienced energy crashes after EVERY high carbohydrate meal and ended up falling asleep within 60 minutes of finishing them. There were no stimulant-like effects from Leviathan Reloaded.
Body Composition: 8/10. Skinfold measurements taken pre and post-Leviathan Reloaded indicate that I lost bodyfat (BF) from all over: Pre: body mass - 53kg (i.e. 116.6lb), body composition -10.5% BF, triceps - 8.0mm, subscapular - 7.0mm, biceps - 7.0mm, iliac crest - 10.5mm, supraspinale - 6.5mm, abdominal - 10.5mm, front thigh - 7.5mm, medial calf - 5.5 mm; post: body mass - 52kg (-1.0kg/2.2lb), body composition - 9.0% BF (-1.5% BF), triceps - 5.5mm (-2.5mm), subscapular - 6.0mm (-1.0mm), biceps - 2.5mm (-4.0mm), iliac crest - 7.0mm (-3.5mm), supraspinale - 5.0mm (-1.5mm), abdominal - 8.0mm (-2.5mm), front thigh - 6.5mm (-1.0mm), medial calf - 4.0mm (-1.5mm); with the most fat loss occurring from my arms and midsection. I lost a total of 0.885kg (i.e. 1.947lb) of BF and also 0.115kg (i.e. 0.253lb) of lean body mass (LBM). Although the final body statistics (i.e. body mass and body composition) indicate that I LOST LBM I know for sure that I did NOT lose MUSCLE mass, as my girths did NOT change, and in some instances INcreased (i.e. arms and thighs).
Muscle Hardness: 7/10 My muscles got harder as I went along, most noticeably in my deltoids and arms. This however could have been because I was also using IGF-2, which makes a huge difference to my muscle hardness.
Appetite: 9/10. Although I experienced appetite suppression whilst using Leviathan Reloaded, due to the times that I experienced it I noted that it was due more from the DCP than the Leviathan Reloaded.
Other Effects. I had increased sweating (or started sweating) after I had had my protein shake/meal 30 minutes after my pm dose of Leviathan Reloaded. I also started warming up ~10 minutes after I had had the shake/meal, which was interesting.
Overall: 8.5/10. I know how I am and what my diet was like. In fact, my diet did NOT change (only my training volume). For someone my size eating 4000+ calories per day 3-5 days a week (1800-2300 cal/day the other days) and NOT gaining fat is something.
Would I use it again? Yes. Although I did not end up "cutting" (which was the initial goal) on this stack (because of my diet) I RECOMPED quite successfully (which to me is better in the long-term, since it will allow my body to maintain its leanness and lose fat more effectively when I desire to).
Would I recommend? Yes. Standalone for fat loss (provided that nutrition and training were in order) or stacked with DCP for either fat loss or recomping.
