    Looking foward to your thoughts.

    FYI-

    Use 10 ozs of water per scoop instead of the 8 specified on the container.

  4. Ok I was very pumped to get Lit-Up so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use it today. I hit my Bi's/abs/cardio today. I usually wouldn't have bi's on Wed., but I missed them for the most part Monday due to showing the wifey her new workout plan. Anyways onto my critique of Lit-Up. Remember these are only my initial impressions and they may change over the time of this log.

    Initial impression based on looks: 7/10 Container is cool looking and small which is nice even though it just sits on my counter. I have every supplement on my counter so it is nice to conserve space. Upon opening it I thought the powder looked a bit odd compared to say Jacked or my sample of C4. More thick looking like a protein powder than tiny granules.

    Taste: 9/10 I was a bit scared based on the looks, but the taste was very good actually. It wasn't just one of those tolerable Preworkout drinks, I actually enjoyed the taste. The only downside was drinking 20oz of it since I used 2 scoops. I felt like I was never gonna finish that thing.

    Effectiveness: 8/10 Overall I felt like Lit-Up was very effective. I have to say I was very skeptical on the way to the gym and even upon arrival. I didn't feel mentally "pumped up" like I usually do with other Preworkout drinks. I also didn't get that feeling before getting to the gym that it had kicked in. Upon starting my workout I realized I was getting a pretty much perfect balance of focus, intensity, etc. I also felt a little more pump than normal. I continued to pound my way through my workout and even felt great all the way through 30min cardio. I still feel like I should be in the gym actually lol.

    Overall score: 8/10 Solid product!! No stomach problems and no crashing feel plus effects that I felt actually APPLIED to my workout and not just a false sense of stimulation.

    I will continue with the rest of the bottle and give more details throughout its usage. The joint health and testosterone increase over time sound wonderful so we'll see. Thanks for the opportunity AN!!

  5. looking forward to hearing more! This powder looks different because it is a "cleaner" powder supplement, not filled with tons of junk. That would be my guess at least. I agree, taste and effectiveness is great. Where in Houston are you located?

    Awesome news man! My fav part about LITup is the tunnel vision type focus that it gives, rather than an overly stimmed energy

  8. Another great day with Lit-Up. I had shoulders and triceps today. I kept the workout short and sweet and felt great the entire time. I actually felt more hype physically and mentally today than yesterday. I found myself drumming along to the music in the car and getting super excited to hit the gym. I am always ready to hit the gym, but I am not usually that excited about it. Especially on shoulder day b/c I have some pain in my right shoulder. Until tomorrow..

    Nice update!

    I'm in a zone when I take LITup (2 scoops).

    For the last 3 days, I have used 1 Black Cats (60 min pre) and 2 scoops (30 min pre) and the energy and focus has been outstanding!

    I haven't used Black Cat yet. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some.

    I went to Cy-Springs...Class of 03

  13. Hit back today and it went very well. I didn't even have my ipod since I forgot to charge it, but I still managed to stay focused and smash the weights. If I can pump the iron with intensity while listening to the gyms lame music you know this stuff is working.

  14. fuuuu I hate when I forget my ipod

    thankfully LITup helped you surpass the issue

  15. Ok I am experimenting with a new 3x a week lifting routine. So here is what I did today.

    All of this was done on avg with a 12rep, 10rep, 8rep approach. I only gave myself 30sec between sets also.

    Chest:
    Incline DB Press 3 sets
    Low Cable Flies (idk the name of this, pulling up from legs towards chest...help me out lol) 3 sets
    Legs:
    Squats 3 sets
    Stiff Legged Deadlifts 3 sets
    Back:
    Lat Pulldowns 3 sets
    Seated Cable Rows 3 sets
    Shoulders:
    Front DB Raises 3 sets
    Side DB Raises 3 sets
    Traps:
    Shrugs 3 sets
    Biceps:
    Alternating DB Curls 3 sets
    Triceps:
    Bar Pushdowns (cables) 3 sets

    Cardio:
    20min eliptical

    Have to say Lit-Up kept me going the whole time. Very good workout with intense focus throughout. I do have one little problem with the drink though. It seems to leave an after taste in my mouth for a while after drinking it. Anyone else experience this with Lit-Up or any other supplements for that matter?

    I haven't experienced it with LITup but there are a few products I have had in the past which have done something similar, usually I just chew on a piece of gum or sip some stronger flavored bcaa's

    HMMMMMM, I got like 5 bottles of Black Cats....sounds like an experiment to me

  19. Hit up my 3x a week workout again today. Legs were actually pretty sore from Monday even though I only did 2 exercises with 3 sets each. Maybe it is the lack of rest between sets at 30sec. Anyways here was my exercise Layout today:

    Legs:
    Squats 3 sets
    Hack Squats 3 sets
    Calf Press 3 sets
    Chest:
    Incline DB Press 3 sets
    Low Cable Flies 3 sets
    Back:
    Lat Pulldowns 3 sets
    Seated Cable Rows 3 sets
    Shoulders:
    DB Presses 3 sets
    Side/Front DB Raises 3 sets
    Traps:
    Shrugs 3 sets
    Biceps:
    EZ Bar Curls 3 sets
    Triceps:
    Angled Bar Pushdowns (cables) 3 sets

    Cardio:
    20min eliptical

    Had a bit of a stomach ache before hitting the gym, but it went away after I started working out. It was not related to the Lit-Up and it didn't seem to make it any worse once I drank it. Usually when I have an upset tummy I drink my pre-workout and then immediately pay for it so that was a nice change. Ya I said tummy so what wanna fight about it? Haha.. Anyways another good workout thanks to the good people over at AN.

    PM sent. Thanks dude.

  23. Took a scoop of Lit-Up for 1hr of cardio. This was the first time I took it for cardio only and I liked it. I felt a smooth focus and it was easy to stay on there for the entire hour. Well except I had to take a few piss breaks lol. I'm not really sure whether Lit-Up is actually good for cardio or not as I have not seen any info on that to my knowledge, but it worked for me. I am nice and hungry too now that I am home and have drank my whey shake. That is a good thing since I used to feel nothing on most other pre workout drinks. Off to eat.

  24. As far as LITup for cardio goes - I have found that 1/2 scoop before a decent session helps me to focus a little more and bang it out without checking the time every 30sec wondering if I am done

  25. Starting a 2 month bulk with my brother instead of continuing to cut. Changed up our routine also. I am doing the following routine and I have to say day 1 was a breeze with Lit-Up in my system.

    Layne Norton’s Workout Routine – Power and Hypertrophy

    Day One – Upper Power
    3 or 4 Compound pressing and pulling movements, 3-5 sets in the 5 rep range, and 1 Accessory Movement

    Day Two – Lower Power
    2 or 3 Squatting and Deadlifting movements, 3-5 sets in the 5 rep range, and 1 Accessory Movement

    Day Three – Off

    Day Four – Hypertrophy Chest/Arms
    3 Benching movements, 2-3 sets in the 8-12 rep range. 1-2 reps short of failure.
    3 Supersets consisting of 2 exercises each, 3 biceps and 3 triceps, 3 sets in the 8-12 range, 1-2 reps short of failure.
    1 Chest accessory exercises, 3 sets, 8-12 reps, 1-2 reps short of failure.

    Day Five – Hypertrophy Shoulders/Back/Traps
    4 Supersets consisting of 2 exercises each, 3 Shoulders and 3 Backs in the 8-12 reps range, and 2 Traps in the 10-15 rep range, 2-3 sets each. 1-2 reps short of failure.
    1 Optional Back compound, 2 sets in the 8-12 rep range, 1-2 reps short of failure.

    Day Six – Hypertrophy Legs/Calves
    2 Supersets consisting of 2-3 exercises each, 4-5 sets in the 8-15 range. 1-2 reps short of failure.

  26. I loooooooooooooooove Layne's PHAT routine, I just got done doing it for about 6 months, I got a little stagnant toward the end so I just recently switched things up, but man what an awesome routine

  27. Second day on the new routine and I am liking it so far. Actually felt pretty sore in my chest area. Lower body was pretty intense today. I am not used to lifting this way so I am sure my muscles are being shocked. Lit-Up continues to prove itself every single workout. I am now bulking so I am loving the fact it doesn't shut down my appetite like other pre workout drinks do. I have also started an Intermittent Fasting diet with 16hrs fasting and an 8hr window for eating. I am liking it a lot so far even though it has only been a few days. It is especially important that Lit-Up not interfere with my appetite b/c I get 2/3 of my calories in my 2 post workout meals. Now that is what I call really coming through and living up to your claims!

  28. Today was day 4 of my new routine. It looked like this:

    Day Four – Hypertrophy Chest/Arms
    3 Benching movements, 2-3 sets in the 8-12 rep range. 1-2 reps short of failure.
    3 Supersets consisting of 2 exercises each, 3 biceps and 3 triceps, 3 sets in the 8-12 range, 1-2 reps short of failure.
    1 Chest accessory exercises, 3 sets, 8-12 reps, 1-2 reps short of failure.

    I have to say I was really impressed today. I felt extremely pumped with these supersets. It was amazing how big and full my arms felt. I was so warm with all the blood pumping that the cold outside couldn't even phase me when I stepped out of the gym. It is supposed to snow in Houston tonight so it is kinda a big deal. 2-4 inches predicted in my area which is friggin unheard of. That gym better be open b/c I am already pumped for day 5. Oh did I mention Lit-Up is the shizzle? I am beasting in the gym!! I was on point the entire time and felt like I could keep going all night. All of you big guys better look out b/c I am coming for you!!

  29. Today was day 5 of the new routine. I had an excruciating headache when I arrived at the gym, but I pushed through it and actually had a pretty good workout. Lit-Up wasn't about to let me turn around and go home. It was that extra fire I needed to get going despite the pain.

    Day Five – Hypertrophy Shoulders/Back/Traps
    4 Supersets consisting of 2 exercises each, 3 Shoulders and 3 Backs in the 8-12 reps range, and 2 Traps in the 10-15 rep range, 2-3 sets each. 1-2 reps short of failure.
    1 Optional Back compound, 2 sets in the 8-12 rep range, 1-2 reps short of failure.

    Dude u almost made me spit out my Lit-up on the screen when u commented on saying tummy and do u want to fight about it, that was really funny.... I am about to have my fourth workout on Lit-up and I am VERYsensitive in a bad way to stims that are in alot of preworkout drinks. So far 1 scoop is treating me really well in the gym and NO crash later in the day on in the gym, while training. The pumps and focus have been great so far, really enjoying this.....
