I love the focus that this product provides. I took it prior to a basketball game and it was awesome to say the least.
    Yea i'm a stim guy myself, so this will be interesting. I've been taking animal pump for quite a while and other varios NO supps, so i'm looking forward to the comparo. Focus is huge, i'm glad that delivers. Pumps are my sought after part of a PWO tho.

    ALT Pro's - more of a conditioning tool, between each set of step ups. I get into a soft push-up type stance and slide my feet back and forth for a period of a minute. Then back to step ups.

    PUSH-UP HIP FLEXION/EXTENSIONS (my trainer***track coach comes up with the routines, a lot of times I have no idea what he's making me do)- I take 4 dumbbells and place them on the floor, get into a push-up position on top of the db's. I perform a push-up then bring my knee in across my chest and then kick all of the way out while slightly twisting my body to a certain side. I alternate both legs during this routine.
    Thanks for the explanations. This last one looks crazy!

    To be completely honest with you, I think he makes this stuff up in his head, tries them out himself and then has me do them. But his programs work. Great conditioning workouts. I told him prior to training with him, that knowing myself I'll get bored doing anything traditional. He told me not to worry and after he trained me the first time, I threw up 3-4 times in an hour and it's been on ever since lol.

    He seems to know what he's doing, as he coaches track and football, so his workouts while difficult are also fun, which for me is important. Here is today's run down. Shoulders/Legs (working legs twice a week. One day explosive conditioning/the other day heavy).

    Overhead press 3x12/8/4 75/80/95lb
    Dual db pullover 3x15/10/8 25lb
    Stiff leg dl 3x15 140lb

    Iso lat db raises 4x12/10/8/8 15lb
    Seated lat pd 4x15/6/12/12 90/112/75/75lb
    Prone leg curl 4x15 55lb

    Alt db overhead press 4x10/8/5/5 30lb
    Iso kneeling lat pull 4x15/12/10/10 80lb
    Single leg squat 4x8 body weight

    Cardio 20 minute warm-up hitting mitts. LIT-UP is perfect for sporting events, whether it be boxing, basketball, or training for my upcoming 8k race. The focus is definitely there, and I'd rank it right up there among the best PWO.


    Energy 8/10
    Focus 10/10
    Pump 7/10

  6. How much water do you take this with? Also, temperature of the water? I got a sample pack and my sponsored tub is coming for my log....The taste just isn't for me but i only tried it once so i'm open to ideas to improve the taste. Texaslifter said try some ice.

    I use about 18-20oz for 2 scoops brotha and it really helps to tone it down for me

  8. For me taste does not matter.I take bulk supps on a daily basis, and shoot them down with water. I'm results oriented. If I want something that tastes good, I'll buy Ben & Jerry's and maybe rent Precious.

    Today's workout is as follows;

    STRAIGHT ARM PD + LAT PD 4 sets 12-15 reps per set

    INCLINE ROW 4 sets at 12-15 reps per set

    WIDE GRIP PULL-UPS 4 sets for a total of 40 pull-ups.


    NARROW GRIP PULL-UPS 40 Total (body weight)

    REVERSE GRIP PULL-UPS until failure

    PREACHER CURLS 4 SETS PYRAMID FASHION UNTIL FAILURE

    INCLINE DUMBBELL CURLS FOR 4 SETS, 12-15 REPS PER SET

    FINISHING OFF WITH RESISTANCE BAND CURLS UNTIL FAILURE.


    Energy: 9/10 (2 scoops)
    Focus: 10/10
    Endurance: 10/10

    At 2 scoops you really feel the difference in intensity. Focus remains among the best in the industry. I've been taking 2 scoops the past few workouts and it's really made a huge difference specific to intensity which I look for in a PWO.

    Usually 8-10 ounces. I just shoot it down and then add more water when I'm done, as there is usually some powder still left over in the cup.

  11. Chest/Legs

    Chest workout:

    Setup 4 dumbbells on floor and positioned myself on top of all 4, and performed a set 25 push-ups per set, for a total of 100 push-ups.

    Incline/Decline Bench 4 sets each (pyramid) starting off at 12 reps to failure.

    Crossover cables at 5 sets - 15 reps per set

    Diamond push-ups for a total of 60.

    Legs

    Negative Leg press 6 sets at 10 reps per set
    Deadlifts at 4 sets - 12 reps per set
    Bucket Squats for 4 sets (pyramid) starting out for 15 reps
    Lunges across gym floor until burn out
    Leg extensions at 5 sets - 15 reps per set

    Notes: Energy at two scoops does the job without being overbearing. Focus is really where this product shines. It leaves you keyed in the entire workout. I plan to use this product prior to athletic events like basketball, football and 5k training. At 2 scoops per workout, I imagine this will last another week or so. Looking forward to it for sure.

  12. Workouts look great.. may have to take some of them to try myself to see what outcomes I get!!

  13. Thanks for the support K!

    Notes: 2 scoops of lit-up got me through last night, as I was dead tired. Up until the end of March early April, I'll be stuck in busy season at work and not getting much sleep. The focus once again is a perfect 10/10. Taking something like this as a daily focus type supp isn't out of the realm of possibility for me, it's that good as it relates to focus. Personally I'd wish the stim portion were a little stronger (always want to give an honest assessment) but in no way should that deter anyone from getting this product, as the focus you get from this product is near perfect.

  15. Past 4 Workouts:

    I've been using LIT UP at 2 scoops per workout. In addition to non-lifting days when I played basketball,football and sparred along with general boxing training splits. My journey with LIT UP as a result has come to an end. I will provide my final summary regarding LIT UP and it is as follows;

    Final Review:

    Strength Increases:8/10 My strength remained the same throughout my time on LIT UP, no strength increases to note; however, all my workouts were effective and I was able to hit all my target goals.

    Energy: 9/10 at 2 scoops. At one scoop I felt nothing and since I love my stims, I decided to up it to 2 scoops per workout during my first week. At 2 scoops the energy is apparent and not overwhelming. It allowed me to hit my target goals and train effectively, while still allowing me to fall asleep at night without issue, this is a huge positive for those who lift at night.

    Focus: 20/10 Now this is where the product really took off for me. I absolutely loved the focus that this product provided. I was dialed in with each and every workout. Now where I really prefer this product is prior to sporting events like boxing, basketball or football, which I engage in 4-5 times a week. I enjoyed using LIT UP so much prior to these events, that I've decided to make it a staple product specifically for sporting events, as a result I recently purchased another tub. Many will use this to lift and to great effect, for me I plan to use this prior to sporting events, it left me dialed in and focused, and more importantly it allowed me to be effective.


    I highly recommend this product for those individuals involved in conditioning type training, specifically athletes. I sparred 6 rounds while on LIT UP, and let's just say it lived up to it's name, as I LIT the other guy up for all of those rounds =) . I'd like to thank AppNut for allowing me the opportunity to try this product. I say this with all sincerity, this product needs to get this product into the hands of athletes, they will without a doubt love it. I hope I've covered all bases, if not feel free to ask any questions.

  16. Thanks for the review and final notes!
