    HereToStudy and his new buddy, Torrent Zero.


    Torrent Zero
    Apple Jacked
    Mini Review/Log

    Looks like I can't stay away from logging, haha.

    As usual, I will provide photos of the product, but I forgot to take them before coming to work today. Will get those up later.

    Alright I am pretty excited about this one because as much as I do have alot of respect for Universal Nutrition and what they have done in the industry, I have yet to try their products besides samples. As we all know samples never give you the full taste of the products effects when compared to a full tub. Lets see if Universal wins a place in my heart.


    Obviously the flavor I have chosen for logging is the Apple Jacked. Now I usually shy away from fruit flavored protein drinks (you guys might remember this from my NutraPro mini-log/review). But being low carb, it might work better then the usual heavier flavors like Chocolate.

    Last Night was my first experience with Torrent Zero.

    My routine was designed by GeekPoop. It is designed to combine mass building with increases in strength. This is done through both power and hypertrophy days.

    Yesterday was an Upper Power day. Lifts basically look like this:

    -5x5 or 3x5 for all lifts(5x5 on bulk cause recovery is better, 3x5 on cut)
    -Barbell Bench Press
    -Barbell Rows
    -Military Press
    -Barbell Shrugs

    Since I am currently on a cut (&*@$ I hate Cutting), I am down to 3x5. At this point I am down a bit on strength, which is always upsetting, but I have significantly cut carbs, which effects me very dramatically. This is actually where the Torrent Zero helps. I also recently finished 2 weeks of clenbuterol. I am currently on my two weeks off, before completing my final two weeks. Along with the Torrent Zero, I am taking CLA from Primordial Performance.

    The flavor of the Torrent Zero is quite interesting. Consider it a liquid version of an apple jolly rancher. It isn't very sweet, but sweet enough to keep the fruit flavor alive. I enjoyed the flavor, and for being low carb, it suprised me.

    I am dosing as per instruction, which is one scoop pre workout, two cups post workout. I am also using Primordial Performance's iBCAAs during workout.

    So far so good. This week I won't report any gains/losses in strength, because I will use this week as a base, but in all reality the goal is to maintain strength, since I am in a cut. So far I am happy with the Torrent Zero. Stay tuned, more observations surely to come...

    Oh! Sounds like a good routine, especially for a cut. Geekpoop certainly looks like he knows what he's doing

    And taste i always the icing on the cake. I dont base a decision (to buy or not) off of taste, but it certainly does not hurt for you to enjoy sipping on a supplement. Makes using it long term not seem trechorous. (i know i slaughtered the spelling there)

    Yea that was kinda my immediate benefit I noted, but I will get more indepth about how it feels towards recovery, etc.

    The thing is I am taking in much less carbs then usualy which is usually something that I completely notice in my workouts/recovery. I will be most interested in analyzing how it affects various aspects of my workout, including recovery. I feel I won't notice much of the creatine benefits, since I am a regular user of creatine. The Aminos should assist with recovery/endurance, since it is in addition to the BCAAs I take intra.

    We shall see..

    Hey lookin good here. I'm in. I've been enjoying the Apple Jacked T-Z myself. The GAA Torrent is a stronger flavor and I usually used more water in it. In this stuff, I don't have too but the flavor is similar.

    Yea the flavor is good. I probably do 8 oz for the 1 scoop, and 12 for the dual scoop. The 12oz/2scoop is the sweet spot for me.

    Well last night was a lower power day. Lifts consisted of:

    -5x5 or 3x5 for all lifts(5x5 on bulk cause recovery is better, 3x5 on cut)
    -Back Squat
    -Deadlift
    -Calf Raises
    -Cardio (warm up/cool down)

    Everything went good. I think the Torrent Zero as a perworkout drink (1 scoop before workout, and I actually mixed it with AGST last night) is adding alittle extra boost to the regular BCAAs I take intraworkout. I felt like I was going a bit stronger then I have been (remember I am on a cut (reduced carbs) - so going down in strength has been an inevitable reality for me). Came home and drank another 2 scoops, I put the bottle in the freezer for a little bit. The flavor is enhanced the colder it gets.

    So, so far I am seeing a slight increase in my endurance as well as recovery. I went from hardly walking right last night to barely any pain this morning.

    Well the label is a bit confusing but a serving is 3 scoops and the 1 scoop to 10oz is there so you know how much water to use. I believe they are recommending a serving pre and a serving post? That would be 6 scoops. I'll get the answer for you on this because doing it this way would be 60oz of water during workout.

    Our apologies fellas, that was a type on the label. The correct info is 3 scoops to be taken post-workout. We will get the labels fixed for the next batches going out.

    You as well! I hate missing the gym..

    My boss is moving out of state and was wanting me to come out. I assumed this meant late night. Well after I agree, he is like, alright we'll meet in a couple hours. Because I don't drive, by the time I get home then commute to gym and back, it wouldn't have happened.

    Time to make up for it tonight.

    Time to make up for it tonight.
    I'm the same way man, trust me. My wife insists I go to the gym when it is time because she doesn't want to hear all the whining that goes on when I miss it

    So true.

    Alright today was a upper body hypertrophy Chest and Arm day.
    DB Incline Bench
    Barbell Close Grip Bench - I might stop these and switch in skull crushers
    DB Flat Bench
    Preacher Curls Supersetted with Standing French Press
    Push Downs supersetted with DB Hammer Curls
    Cable Crossovers
    Machine Curl Suppersetted with machine Dips

    Most went to plan except I didn't superset the machine curls/dips.

    Came home and had 3 scoops of Torrent Zero in water. Mixed with a blender ball bottle. Mixed smoothly, tasted good, good to go. It interestingly foams quite a bit from being shaken, more so then I am used to in most powdered drinks, but letting it sit for 30sec to 1 minute and it goes away. The foam doesnt bother me, I am after all a craft beer lover, so I know how to enjoy a good head on a drink, haha...but if it did bother someone, they could just let it settle.

    It actually is balanced well on how much it fills you as well. I like to have a meal about 1 hour after my PWO, and this allows me to without feeling overly full.
    Just inject.

    Missing a couple updates here:

    Saturday I had my Hypertrophy Shoulders/Back/Traps

    -DB Shoulder Press Supersetted with DB Front Raise
    -DB One Arm Row Supersetted with DB Arnold Press
    -Lat Pull Down (wide) supper setted with DB Shrugs
    -Lat Pull Down (close) SuperSetted with DB Upright Row
    -T-bar row

    Yesterday I did cardio, light running nothing much.

    I am really enjoying the TZ. The taste has really grown on me and I look forward to taking it. Still mixing in a blender bottle, throwing in freezer, showering, and chugging it when I come out. Delicious, no carbs, and protein This is great for a low carb diet.
    Just inject.
