    SOUTHPAW vs APS' TESTALENSIS 100


    A huge thank you to APS and judgementday for graciously allowing me the opportunity to log their newest test booster, TESTALENSIS 100. I've been a huge fan of APS thanks to the results I've achieved with Mesomorph, Creatine Nitrate, Testatropin V2 and White Lightening. If those products are any indication, then Testalensis is sure to be another home run in their lineup. But let's not put the carriage before the horse. I will provide an honest and clear assessment of the product, good or bad.

    My current weight is somewhere between 155-160. As summer approaches I obviously want to remain as lean as possible, while holding onto and hopefully adding on some additional muscle mass. I usually take in 3000-3500 calories a day, depending on the type of training I'm engaged in for that day. My diet is predicated on a high protein/high fat intake, while keeping carbs to a minimum. I will be performing fasted cardio 4-5 times a week The supplements I will be using prior to fasted cardio are as follows;

    APS'White Lightening
    Alpha-T2
    Erase
    ModernBCAA with added BCAA's


    I will be lifting 4-5 times a week. I'll be employing whole body "conditioning" type routines coupled with traditional lifting. I also cycle, box and play basketball 3 times a week. My supplementation stack for lifting includes the following;

    APS' Mesomorph
    APS' Creatine Nitrate (6 caps pre with Meso and 2 post)
    VPX Powershock with additional BCAA's added
    1 cap of Testalensis pre with 1 gram of LCLT
    1 cap of Erase post

    According to the directions Testalensis should be taken 3 times a day (not sure if it should be taken with or without food?). Until I hear something back, I'll aim to take it on as near an empty stomach as possible.

    The ingredient listing for T-100 is as follows;

    3,4 divanil, bulbine natalensis 100:1, Macuna Pruriens, Fadogia, Zinc aspartate, Vit D3

    I began by taking 1 cap last night prior to working legs. I'll normally be taking 1 cap in the morning, another around 2 and the last one before my evening workout. Test boosters take time, so don't expect me to say after 48 hours that I PR'd my bench by over 100lbs. I'll be honest and realistic with everyone. If I notice something tangible, you guys will hear about it. Testalensis will be put to the test (my John Kramer voice), let the games begins...

    Thanks Andrew. In regards to Erase, a little less than a month. I'm not sure about the leaning out effects because my calories have remained the same over the last month and I eat every 2 hours; however, friends/family are telling me that I actually look bigger. And the only difference over the last month has been the addition of Erase to my stack. I'll know more after the next 4 weeks, as I up the cardio. Thanks for following along.

    Schizm, stalking is just another of way of saying "hey what's up", but in the dark, with the car lights off. I predicate my life on using the word "predicated".

    Judo, thanks for joining the party. I'm anxious to find out myself. I loved my time on Triazole, so I'm hopeful that this will surpass that experience.

    3C, thanks for joining. I look forward to following yours as well. This comes at a time where my workouts have been lackluster for the past month, as I'm working 11-12 hour days and trying to fit life in somewhere in the middle. I'll need the motivation that's for sure.

    Rahl, as am I. I believe we're getting these before they are released to the market, which should be fairly soon. In lieu of the N.Bulbine controversy going around, I am hopeful that APS can change that perception with Testalensis.

    Atomic, thanks man. I've been working shoulders hard over the past year, so it really shows.

    I'm not sure how to answer the second question, I'll just say no lol. Thanks for following along.

    To be honest with you, Schizm, I had so many routines in a month that I never allowed my body to adapt to any one thing. I do however love military presses, these were one of my favorites. I don't focus on numbers. I'm simple in that sense, I perform the routine until I trash that body part. I go home and I eat big...simple as that. I don't like getting bogged down in numbers. I think I have a decent handle on what works for me at this point, I'm still learning. My biceps are my weak point. I can't seem them to grow them or get them to pop, or maybe It's just not in the cards lol.

    I agree. With the rest of the profile in that stuff it should do something even if the bulbine sucked.

    cool man, variety is good...I change often, perhaps too often, still learning/observing what I respond to better...but recently tend to get too wrapped in specifics (reps, rep speed, rest, writing things down), which then overshadows the actual thrashing of the muscle it self, mostly with shoulders/traps, my problem areas...

I think I have a decent handle on what works for me at this point, I'm still learning. My biceps are my weak point. I can't seem them to grow them or get them to pop, or maybe It's just not in the cards lol.
    I've been sort of pondering whether the way my workouts have been need to change. I've been doing full body 3x a week, with plan of 2-3 exercises for chest, 1 each for back, shoulders, quads, bis, tris with the occasional hamstring specific exercise thrown in with target of 8-12 reps per exercise, 3 sets last set always to failure. But I walk in with no real plan as to what i'm doing or even necessarily what order i'm doing them in. Its been working decently, so i'm not really sure if I should change, but it somehow seems wrong.

    EDIT: I guess I should add the whole reason I mentioned it was the "bogged down in numbers". I feel weird not being tied down with numbers and a specific training regimen
