    Exclamation a honest pink magic review


    Ok so was researching PM here and a couple other forums and noticed all the controversy over the legitimacy of reviews/logs. I guess I got sucked into the marketing scheme or hype or whatever because I dropped 70$ at GNC for a bottle. And I am aware that my review may not be legitiment as I am a first time user or whatever, but bb.com seems to have some censorship issues that seem fishy so here I am. I am 6'2" and 163 lbs. Never really worked out for more than a couple months in highschool. I am 20 years old and started p90x a couple months ago and moved the free weights after the first phase (3 weeks.) I then continued on that for 2 and a half weeks and bought some PM. So I am only on day 3 but I can tell you what I've noticed so far:

    Day 1 was a off day

    Day 2 was yesterday (back and shoulders)
    Didn't notice anything special, had a good workout but with the jack3d it's usually like that and I don't really reach muscle failure on shoulders/back it seems.

    Day 3 Bench ?superset? Thingy where we (me and my buddy) check our 1 rep max before-hand
    This is where a couple things I would probably have to give credit to PM happened:
    This was the first time I have max'd out on bench since starting free-weights and I hit 205 and my old PR from 4 years ago as a sophomore was 185 so I'm not really sure wtf is up with that? But more credited and advertised by pm is the vascularity, my vein on my bicep has been popping out of my arm all day. I am very skinny for my height and have a pretty low bf% but this is not normal.

    Anyways I'll be coming back every couple of days and letting you guys know what's up, as I am aware that there are ZERO reviews I trusted as a consumer. And was very fearful I wasted 70$ for two days there.

    Vascularity is good. I did a log of pm. I stoped on the second bottle because I got sick. I really noticed effects around the week three mark. I didn't notice much to start. I had pre and post pics a well. Good luck.

    It's Sunday and I am eagerly awaiting monday (Chest/Tri's). The vascularity is still pumping insanely. It's too early to really feel the magic but the fact that it's already showing me one of the things it advertises is a huge relief. My doubt never really lied with USPlabs but just some of the fishy behavior on some of the forums. I used Jack3d and have used a bottle of Prime with 0 dissatisfaction. Well check back after my next workout.

    I do have one complain, however. I have only taken 4 days worth of pills (28 pills) and I have already found one empty pill and one broken pill. Pretty saddening since it's the most expensive supp I have ever purchased (4 month supply). I hope this doesn't continue at this rate =(

    Are you going to run it 4 months straight??? Or are you going to run it 2 seperate times 8wks each??? I dont think its reccomended to go over 12wks straight with it but then im no expert. Glad to see your liking it, i have a friend trying it out right now. He says hes feeling some effects after 5 days, but nothing in the gym has changed yet. So im eager to see what it does for him. Goodluck on your run!

    I think it's great to have non-sponsored reviews, it lends more credibility to the review process. I hardly ever make a consumer choice, that is predicated on sponsored reviews or rep recommendations. Look forward to some unfiltered feedback.

    I agree with the other guys its nice to have some reviews from regular joes. I want to let you know I got PM going for a couple weeks now, it started slow for me, but things have been going good. FYI though, shop around online for deals on the stuff. I paid close to what you did, but I have seen it on various sites now for like 45 bucks and some change so my next bottle I am shopping around.

    Chest and Tri's today, went well but can't say I'm feeling any magic yet. Tomorrow will be a week exactly on PM. I've been pretty wishy-washy as far as lifting lately. Some days I feel alot stronger than normal and others I feel mediocre. Be back after bi's/forearms tomorrow!

    Sounds like you may be lacking in energy. If you are naturally thin, you most likely have a high metabolism. When your on a stack like this, food is real important. Make sure your getting enough carbs pre and post workout. I would be eating alot of pasta, whole grain toast, and oatmeal with every meal (veggies and protein of course) and make sure you eat 5-6 times every day

    Well, good luck on this man. Just dont do like I did and use more than the recommended amount. I used 6 before training, and 6 throughout the day (12 a day total). I cant say I got ripped up and lifted extroirdinary amounts of weight, but what I can say is, I Raged!! My attitude was horrible, and at times, the littlest thing would set me off, and I really felt like I could Hurt someone! I did break out on my face a little also.

    I know this is not a Steroid, but after I quit taking it, I went back to my old self in about a week.

    I will take it again in the future, but this time, the recommended doses.

    This guys right! I use to have some inconsistant days from week to week. But once i got my self on a routine of eating at certain times, a set amount of food, and PROPER REST(minimum of 8hrs of sleep) this subsided almost immediately. Of course we all still have a bad day every once in a while but its alot more rare now that im on a strict shedule. On these days your weaker look at the previous and current day at what youve eaten and how much rest you got. Chances are you lacked in both departments or at minimum in one. How did arm's go today?

    Had to get up early for arms since I had to work and was a little drowsy til I hit the jack3d. Had to say it went really good today, felt Like I could pump reps all day and my vein is about to pop out my bicep... picked a tighter work shirt for today =]

    Thanks for the specific eating advice (mentioning different foods) and will definately try to improve on this aspect of training.

    What size servings. Ex a cup of rice. That makes a big difference. It will help us better understand your diet. For example a tsp cottage cheese? I usually eat 2 cups of cottage cheese. Which is kinda a lot. See if you can track macros for a day to see where your at. Great job on a clean diet though. To clean for my blood.

    I was just giving him examples of what to eat, my proportions I never measure but its works. For the younger guys who are trying to get cut or actually compete for bodybuilding they should def measure

    Thumbs up


    Today was our Friday Chest Superset (Flat Bench)


    135 x10 x10
    140 x10
    145 x8
    150 x6
    155 x4
    185 x2
    205 x1
    170 x4
    165 x6
    160 x6 (damnit)
    145 x8
    140 x10
    95 x25

    I felt like a BEAST today. I usually struggle starting off at 135 in incriments of 5lbs + 2 rep, but today I had to start off 5lbs higher and even that seemed too easy! So I had to up it like 30lbs on my 2 rep set and did 205 once for gits and shiggles. Only struggled on that 160x8 where I failed and needed a spot on rep 7 and 8. We do back and shoulders on Thursdays (dumb I now see and we are switching it up) which makes me struggle a bit on flat bench day. (fatigued lats and shoulders) But like I said, today I told my lats and shoulders I didn't need them... GREAT WORKOUT.

    EDIT:

    I do see the ironic humor in saying a felt like a BEAST with such a weak bench-press. Just FYI before anyone decides to tell me

    Nice, I love the feeling of being a beast in the gym, nothing better really. And who cares if its light weight, we all start out somewhere. When your done with your log you should copy all your posts and post your log on bb.com - they are such haters over there on PM that it would be good to have an honest review

    There is always some one stronger and someone weaker. Improving upon your self is all that matters. Good hard work. I only asked about portions because many who say they eat around 4-5 k cals really don't. IMO it's just as important to track diet on a lean bulk. If not more. And I don't think people should even try to recomp if they don't track diet. Dirty bulk well that's another story. Keep it up. I need to post my finial review my log was cut early but I still ran PM around 6 weeks.

    How the hell did you pull that one off lol? Congrats man look forward to it. Heck why not just stack all that immediately onto the end of this PM run? They say you should run for 8 weeks for best results.
