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 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 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
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 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...
