Thank you for Rosie, Sean and Applied Nutriceuticals for allowing me to givea trial run. I will do my best to provide quantitative feedback regarding improvements in strength and weight gain (body fat/lean body mass etc.). Qualitatively speaking I will comment about the effects of FREE TEST using the review format listed below.
Gender - Male
Age - 34 years
Height - 5'10"
Weight - 192lbs
Presently I am using Big Beyond Belief (BBB). I began the 6 day per week ramp, but began to overtrain, so I am cutting back to an abreviated 3 day per week routine. If you are new to Big Beyond Belief, the program is all about adaption. One balances 3 weeks cycles of purposefully increasing torture to back off for 3-4 weeks and allow the body to super-compensate. For more information check out Appnut's new spokesman, Ben Booker, who is a BBB guru.
While I do not count calories every day, I do have a good idea of my macronutrient ratios and total calories. Over time I began to use "protein shakes" and "green shakes" to satisfy my nutritional needs (ease of use and economic compared to whole food).
Protein Shake Macronutrient breakdown: (skim milk, steel cut oats, almonds and - vitamix style)
Calories = 2042 (split into 4 shakes)
Protein = 198 grams
Carbs = 218 grams
Fat = 44 grams
Fiber = 23 grams
Green Shake Macronutrient breakdown: (celery, spinach, broccoli and blue berries)
Calories = 183 (split into 4 shakes)
Protein = 11.25 grams
Carbs = 35.75 grams
Fat = 0 grams
Fiber = 14 grams
I eat supper with my family and typically eat what my wife puts before me. At times I supplement with some Whey Protein Isolate. Then before bed, I typically consume whey with greens or greens and cottage cheese. As you can tell, this is where my nutrition becomes a bit obscure.
(deep breath) Vitamin-C, Multi-vitamin, Joint Health formula (Glucosamine, Chondrotin and MSM), , Whey Protein Isolate, V2, BCAA, , , and some black and green metallic pills from a bottle entitled FREE TEST.
DAY 1 Review:
MUSCLE HARDNESS/ - Too soon to comment.
STRENGTH GAIN (NA) - At the moment I have the luxury of lower reps (5-12) and more rest. The last 3 weeks have seen a steady increase in volume while rest between sets has been cut. This is the first week that I have not dropped weight from set to set (staying within given repetition range). I am looking forward to what FREE TEST will add over the next 4 weeks.
BODY COMPOSITION (NA) - I am trying to connect with the trainer that test by body fat. 3 weeks ago, I was measured at 8.7%.
WEIGHT GAIN/FAT LOSS (NA) - My diet is 95% clean (whole unprocessed foods). Starting today I will be bumping calories each week in order to see movement on the scale.
LIBIDO (10) - Coincidence or not, tonight was a special night. It appears that FREE TEST may be exerting some of its intended effects. Most likely it is too soon to tell.
MOOD (NA) - Honestly...to soon to tell. I was taking Mitrotropin for the last 3 weeks, so I am in a bit of stimulant withdrawal.
