    MAN BODY OCTANE-GAME DAY


    i was fortunate enough to get a jug of game day to log. ive been a fan of MAN products for around 5 years now. 1st tried body octane stacked with clout-then tried it solo. what i liked about original body octane was endurance/stamina/recovery.

    i took 1 scoop this morning before leaving for gym. 1st thing i noticed is the jug and scoop are small-2nd thing is it tastes great, really great!!!

    got to gym about 20 minutes after taking, started lifting almost as soon as i walked in the door. started feeling the beta alanine around 25 minutes after taking, but it seems that when i started lifting it really kicked in-rpm works the same way for me, seems activity makes it work. 45 minutes in i was feeling it-going to take it sooner next time.

    did a full body workout and still had more in the tank-ran out of time.


    ok-stim effect is very mild.
    recovery/stamina/endurance are top notch.
    pump effect was just ok-i think it might get better over time.
    beta alanine and cit mal are dosed slightly lower than body octane but effects are definately felt, probably good synergy with the ingredients.

    Shazam! An appearance by a new MAN product. It's like a snow leopard sighting.

    it tastes fantastic-even though ba/cit mal is less than in original b/o it is still intense compared to others i have used. the stim effect isn't spine tingling, but it is enough for a good kick in the arse. the recovery and endurance is right there with original b/o even at the lower dose.


    btw- the only place i have found it at is MAN home site, it is expensive there, but considerably cheaper than the original.

    took a scoop and a half of game day and headed to nifs for a full body workout. could notice a significant increase in energy and motivation over 1 scoop. the endurance and recovery are outstanding, i am not getting nearly as sore as usual. i feel like i am making improvements in my overall fitness. i am finishing workouts feeling good!

    ok, so for the 2nd time i have done 5x up and down the stairs, the 1st time i really had to push hard just to finish. this time seemed easy enough that next time i am going to go for 6. my endurance is really increasing, along with recovery. i am waking up with much less soreness and fatigue!

    for the price point i think game day would be a good base to build on.

    hey dave, you have got to try weighted stairclimbing-the results are ridiculous.

    my workout yesterday was amazing. i usually have good workouts on weekends since i am better rested, but yesterday i felt like i couldn't get tired. added 4 more machines to my usual routine and then did 20 minutes on the eliptical. endurance has really improved.

    btw-the ba tingles have subsided for the most part, but are still noticeable.

    didn't sleep well yesterday and had a crappy night at work. really didn't feel into it this morning but pushed myself. took a scoop and a half of game day strapped on my ankle weights and headed downtown to climb stairs. struggled to make it 4 times up and down, but was happy with myself for pushing those 4 trips out on a sub par day. oh well, no supplement will prevent me from having an off day every now and then-gonna try and hit it hard tomorrow.

    this morning workout went much better-even though i held back some-i am determined to get at least 5 trips up and down stairs tomorrow.
    so far my muscles are fuller[gained 1 pound even though activity has increased and diet is same]. the pump from game day is ok, ive had better to be honest. endurance and recovery are superb, my fitness level has really improved-this is starting to show in the mirror as i look thighter/fuller. i can't wait till my sunday tennis match, i am sure athletic ability will be much improved.

    Good to hear the results continue. I am even happier to see that the lean body comp is part of your results along with the added strength and endurance.

    endurance and fitness are my goals right now, the added strength is a welcome bonus. all my life i have been a big guy just looking to get as strong as possible, as i get older i am more interested in being leaner and more athletic. right now i am weighing in at 203-2 years ago i was 260.


    btw-nice to hear from you gb!

    i think you would like game day-i am getting the same kind of results i got from original body octane with the added bonus of stims-even though the stim effect seems light to me, it is still enough to give a nice boost.

    MAN-has been using beta alanine/cit mal combo for a very long time-i think they were the 1st. imo, they have perfected it.

    ok, i am 2 1/2 weeks into game day. my endurance has increased more than i ever expected, i am able to do more reps, climb more stairs and do more cardio than before. my recovery has also improved, i don't get as sore as before. because of the increased endurance and recovery i am working out longer and harder. the results from this are really showing in the mirror, i am looking both tighter and fuller.

    game day is a difference maker!!!

    for me it seems that endurance and recovery started to go much faster than strength as i got older. that is why i have been focusing on endurance-so far since starting game day i have gone fron struggling to make 4 trips up and down 21 flights of stairs[wearing 10 pounds of ankle weights] to 5 1/2 trips.

    it is nice to look in good shape-it is even better to be able to back it up.

    i bet the stim effect would really be mild without the healthy dose of beta alanine-to me beta alanine really enhances the effects of stims. but stim effect aside, i am getting more endurance from game day than i did from body octane-even though the ba/cit mal is dosed lower. so far i have to admit to being very impressed.

    took 1 1/2 scoops and headed for gym. joints were sore from pushing myself so hard but once i got into about the 3rd set i was better. i didn't push as hard today and just did more reps with lighter weights-got a great pump.

    only have enough game day for 1 more workout, going to take tomorrow off and then try for 7 trips on stairs.

    MAN-GAME DAY.....FINAL REVIEW



    taste: very good, one of the best.


    mixability: no problem, mixed easily with a spoon.

    pump: by my 3rd workout my muscles were full and tight-they have stayed that way since.

    focus/motivation: i was dialed in on all but a couple of workout while on game day. the mild stim boost was enough to get me motivated to push hard in the gym.

    energy: the stim effect was mild, but enough to push me through hard workouts-sleep was not effected.

    libido: 1,3,dime has been the culprit for libido loss, this was not the case with game day-libido was uneffected.

    endurance/recovery: this is where game day shines imo. reps went up starting from around 3rd workout and continued to go up. i added a full 2 trips of stairclimbing-fantastic result in less than a month. recovery was also improved, i expected to be very sore with increasing my routines, but i actually felt better than before.

    value: for $28 this is a very good deal. i think it has more than the advertized 30 scoops-it lasted me 28 days and most times i used 1 1/2 scoops and a few times 2 scoops.


    my tennis was much improved using game day-if you play sports i highly recommend you try this.

    i will be buying, and using it everytime i play tennis or need a boost for long cardio sessions.
