    That would be a general recommendation with any product containing stimulants (unless you can take stimulants and have no disruption with your sleep)

  2. I find that true with almost any stim product around bedtime

    What I usually do when I lift in the evening and take stims is considerably kick up the intensity of my workout and usually I dont have a problem sleeping after wards. Adding in finishers to the end of a workout can help make sure your tired enough to sleep and will also help with your weight loss goals.

    although I havent used Wyked in the evening yet and the stim effect from Wyked is the most pronounced I have ever felt so not sure if the above would be true for Wyked but it has helped with other stim pre-workout products

    Oh yes, do not take me wrong. It was an observation rather than a complaint. Unfortunately, 90% of my gym time is after work, so I have little choice in the matter. It was said more for the people who have that type of flexibility. I am sure I will adjust soon enough. At least I did not crash and burn at 8pm LMAO~

    You could always take a scoop a few hours before your training and then another ~60 min pre-training and see how that goes, if it affects your sleeping.

    Name: Day 4, wk 6
    Start Time: 04:20 PM
    End Time: 05:35 PM
    Duration: 01:15
    Location: Van Wert Cnty Y

    Notes: Warmed up with 4 minutes cardio,

    # Exercise Name Set Lbs. Reps

    1 Barbell Full Squat
    #1 325 5
    #2 355 3
    #3 385 1 (New PR since working to improve depth)
    #4 275 10
    Warm ups with bar, 135, 185, 225. All reps to parallel except I did unrack 405 and just hold it and do a few slight knee bends to get a feel for it. Felt good. Could have maybe squeezed out another rep on sets 1 and 2 but had no spotter, did not feel like bailing tonight.

    2 Romanian Deadlift
    #1 265 8
    #2 265 8
    #3 265 8
    #4 265 8

    3 Leg Extensions
    #1 220 12
    #2 220 11
    #3 220 10
    This machine has more resistance then the one at the Williams Cnty Y, so I had to use a little less weight.

    4 Lying Leg Curls
    #1 90 12
    #2 90 10
    #3 90 9
    This machine has more resistance then the one at the Williams Cnty Y, so I had to use a little less weight.

    Observations regarding Wyked today: Still good, clean steady energy, great motivation and laser like focus. I am not saying it was 100% the Wyked, but something moved me enough to go for a new full parallel squat PR tonight with out a spotter and then turn around and pull 405 off the rack just to see how it felt. That is my idea of aggression in the weight room.

    Will not be lifting tomorrow, but I will take 1 scoop on off days to see if we can get the cumulative effects others have noted.

    So far, still impressed and loving this stuff!

    Awesome to hear... breaking new PRs is always good news! Congrats big guy!

    Are you still using half of it for intra workout? This may also be why the effects are lasting longer after your workouts

    Yeah, pretty much, but I generally have it down before I move on to my 2nd main movement (i.e finish squats and finish the rest). Sleep was not an issue at all last night. Maybe it was because of leg day, maybe the 5-10 minutes I spent in the whirl pool, maybe just getting used to the stuff, not sure. I did start lifting about an hr earlier though now that I think about it.

    Another thing I noted that I forgot to mention is I assume that the ingredients have some thermogenic properties, because I have sweat dripping off of me and onto the floor after just 4 min cardio warm up and a few warm up sets. This is by no means a complaint, because if I did not come to the gym to bust my ass and work up a sweat, WTF is the point of going!

    I would say that is probably the Synephrine HCL. It acts on adrenoreceptors receptors and it boosts norepinephrine levels up which results in the thermogenitic effect. It also isnt too harsh on the CNS and shows promise at enhancing fat breakdown when take pre-workout. It is a great addition to Wyked IMO, Eric has himself a real winner here

    Mood: Energized and Ready!
    Notes: Started with a 4 minute cardio warm up, just to get a sweat rolling.

    # Exercise Name Set Lbs. Reps

    1 Decline Barbell Bench Press
    #1 245 6
    #2 260 2
    #3 275 1
    #4 295 1
    #5 205 10
    #6 135 20
    Warm ups with bar, 135, 185. Got 295 2/3 up, could not lock it out, calling it a forced rep. Looks good for next week.

    2 Bent Over Barbell Row
    #1 190 8
    #2 190 8
    #3 190 8
    #4 190 8
    Dropped weight and bent over further, noted my form had gotten a bit sloppy on these, so I am correcting it.

    3 V-Bar Pulldown
    #1 175 8
    #2 175 8

    4 Assisted dip
    #1 230 10
    #2 230 9
    #3 230 4
    Noted weight is bw+shoes etc minus assist wgt.

    5 Seated Side Lateral Raise
    #1 40 12
    #2 40 12
    #3 50 9
    Noted weight is DB wgt X2

    6 Standing Dumbbell Triceps Extension
    #1 75 10
    #2 75 6

    7 Seated Hammer Curls
    #1 70 12
    #2 70 12
    #3 70 10
    Did these seated to minimize momentum. Both hands at same time, so wgt is db wgt X2

    8 Dumbbell Shrug
    #1 200 10
    #2 200 12
    Decided that DL's and OH Presses were not enough, time to bring these babies up to speed!

    Finished with 33 minutes of 5 stage hills profile, with peak resist 10/15. 284 cals.

    Notes regarding Wyked effects:

    1) I usually do not notice pumps much, unless I do super high reps or compound/super/opposing/drop sets, but tonight, there was no denying the swelling in my arms and chest. Also, there was something in me that just screamed "Oh hell no, you are not done yet" when my arms started yelping with the workout.

    2) Motivation was really high tonight. Time was the only limiting factor on what I got done. I wanted to keep lifting but wanted to get in some cardio time before the Y closed.

    3) Cardio endurance continues to impress. I usually feel like I want to say "screw it" about 2/5 of the way through the 5 stage hill profiles. Unlike prior episodes. I was able to easily maintain 105+ SPM at peak resistance and was hardly winded (again ) Felt like I could have easily gone a full hr (except for bing BORED !) The only thing that did slow me a bit was the DOMS/fatigue from Friday's leg routine.
    Recoverbro

  11. Tried something I have never done before, fasted cardio. Started the day with 2 cups of coffee, 10grams bcaa and 2 scoops Wyked. Did 40 minutes on the Nustep Crosstrainer, 5stg Hills profile. 348 cals, 116 avg spm 10/15 peak resist.

    The Wyked continues to impress on cardio endurance, kept it at or above 110 spm when I hit peak resistance (10/15) when I used to struggle to keep it above100 here! Still got plenty in the tank but will not be lifting today.

    If anyone is wondering, taking the Wyked coming off a fast (ok, only 11hrs, but a fast none the less) did increase it's efficacy.

    Not my best night deadlifting, but better than last week. Warm up sets at 135, 185, 225. Belt only on 365 set.
    2 Hack Squat
    #1 280 8
    #2 280 8

    Good depth, kept the hands off of the knees.

    #3 640 8


    Did not really feel "into it" tonight, but that is what discipline is isn't it? Doing what will help you meet your goals despite what you feel about it at a given point in time! So I pounded down 1/2 of my 3 scoops of Wyked mixed with 5 g BCAA and headed to the Y. Am not going to BS anyone and say by the time I hit the weight room, I felt like I could take on the world, but I will say that after my warm up, I felt confident that tonights DL session was going to be better than last weeks.

    On the Hack squats, the reps came easy, and a 20 pound jump is pretty aggressive for me on those. By the time I got the calf extensions and leg presses out of the way, the pump was almost painful. I probably looked pathetic gimping back and forth re-racking the 45lb plates from the leg press. See my sig? Mission accomplished tonight. Finished things off with a bit of lower extremity stretching.

  16. Love the sig brother! Sometimes no matter what you are on or what your taking its just not there, but getting in there and getting the job done is what its all about!
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

  17. Excellent detailed log so far brother. Glad to hear good things about the taste. I need to get my hands on this.

    A good tasting pre workout is hard to find.

  18. Ok, again started the day with 2.5 cups of coffee and 10g bcaa in water with 2 scoops of Wyked and fasted cardio. Today we did 15x 30/30 HIIT cycles with the difference being I stayed at 100% max resistance through out, decreasing intensity only by lowering my pace and making recovery from each High Intensity round a bit more difficult. Last time I did this, I quit at 8 cycles. Again, this stuff continues to impress on cardio endurance. Every cycle past the 6th (had to find my grove) exceeded the Nusteps capacity to count SPM. When I was done, I hit the water bottle, dropped resistance down to 70% and coasted to an even 30 minutes. 258 cals burned.

    Thanks for the input, this being my first product review log, some feed back is appreciated. Stuff does taste great, at least to me, does not have that "battery acid" aftertaste a lot of PWO's have. To be quite honest, not sure what else I can say, as there is only so much you can describe about a PWO.

    #2 260 3
    #3 275 2
    #4 205 10
    #5 155 15
    Forced reps added (1) on set 2 and 3. Warm ups with bar, 135, 185.

    2 Assisted Pull up
    #1 220 8
    #2 220 6
    #3 210 8
    #4 210 8
    Increased the assist weight to insure full ROM, shot for 8 reps per set. Noted weight is body weight +shoes etc minus assist weight.

    3 Incline Dumbbell Press
    #1 160 12
    #2 160 9
    Shoulders have been a bit touchy lately, lightened up and increased reps here. 80'sX2

    4 Straight-Arm Dumbbell Pullover
    #1 75 10
    #2 75 10

    5 Barbell Shoulder Press
    #1 155 10
    #2 155 10
    #3 135 12
    2nd set was supposed to be 175 but lost it and had to bring it down to my lap and then the floor. With the recent shoulder pain and all, figured I would lighten up a bit.

    6 Barbell Shrug
    #1 275 12
    #2 315 8
    #3 315 8

    7 Standing One-Arm Dumbbell Triceps Extension

    #2 30 12
    #3 30 12
    #4 30 12
    #5 30 10
    #6 30 10
    Even sets are left, odd sets are right

    8 Preacher Curl
    #1 75 10
    #2 75 10
    EZ curl bar with inside grip.

    9 Barbell Curl
    #1 60 21
    Did on set at 60 pounds as "21's". Hell of a pump.

    Finished with 25 minutes of cardio, progressively increasing resistance (60%, 80%, 100% max) and then back down. 200 cals.

    Actually went on 4 scoops tonight. Energy was good as evidenced by 95 minutes lifting followed by cardio that was only limited by time constraints. Endurance continues to shine with this stuff. Pump after the tri and bi work were almost painful. At home and still plenty alert and not fatigued and I was not geeked BTW (like I said, tend to run naturally high tolerances for about anything.)

  25. I've used 4 scoops but find I train just as good off 2 scoops. I'm also trying to back off stims a little
