Seams you're having a good run with Wyked.
I must say, I'm really impressed with it myself.
Taste the rainbow.

Not much to report today, off day. Did down 2 scoops on my way to work. Taste continues to please the palate, focus continues to do well. What can we take from a day at work? NO CRASH! Good stuff.

Finished with 12X40/20 HIIT, at max resist, 163 cals. This was a bit more challenging today than Monday's session, but is still a new level of cardio intensity for me.
Seeing some strength increases now (Deadlift, squat and bench) am very please with this. During the Incline DB presses and DB Pullovers, I was really cranking up the effort, straining and grunting to push out a few more reps. I feel the focus and energy the Wyked gives me helps here.
Bad News: My tub is almost done.
Counter good news: I got more on the way. ( No better testimony about a product than putting YOUR OWN cash where your log is )

Excellent focus and energy, despite the fact that I had rolled out early this morning and did cardio before work. Actually intended on keeping things fairly light for squats tonight but once I got going, 365 just seemed right for set #2 (Not heavy for a lot of you I know, but fairly heavy for me.) That is aggresssion! Oh, got my shipment of a Wyked refill and DA-HCG today. As earlier indicated, that is out of my own pocket because Wyked and Taurus in general has really gained my trust and respect with the quality of their products but even more so the quality of peeps who rep for them. Sorry if that sounds to "fanboy" like, but it is sincere.

not fanboy at all....great that you are liking taurus products enough to be a repeat buyer!!! thank you!
GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY!!!

Day 1, wk 9 (deload week)
2:20 – 3:15 p.m.
Total duration: 55 Minutes.
Notes: Was starting to feel a little beat up, joints achy etc, so decided it was time for a deload. Instead of taking a week away from the iron and just hitting cardio, I have opted to lower volume a bit buy dropping some weight.
Today, we tried to keep it intense by incorporating Compound and opposing sets. Focused on form, good mind muscle connection and slow tempo with emphasis on negatives.
Decline Bench+ 190-/8/8, 210/8
Flat DB Press110-/10/10, 130/10 (wgt = db wgt x2)
BO BB Row+ 140-/8, 150-/8/9
Triangle PD 220-/10,250-/10/10
Assisted dip + 195-/12, 205-/12/12
Ham Curl 40-/15, 50-/15/15 (wgt = db wgt x2)
St. Bar Cable Curl+ 85-/15, 100-/15
St Bar Tri PD 85-/15, 100-/15
Seated OH DB Press 90-/15/15 (wgt = db wgt x2)
Db Lat Raise 30-/12/12 (wgt = db wgt x2)
Wrapped it up with 40 minutes of 5 stage hills cardio, 305 cals burned.
The energy was there for the lifting part, got in, cranked it up, got it done and made it intense even though I was going lighter. To be honest, kind of dogged it through the first 20 minutes of cardio, the endurance was still there, just even the best play list can only do so much for making sitting in a damn room on a machine "interesting". Maybe because I have stepped up the frequency of my cardio this week, not sure. Stepped it up the last half.
Got a few more scoops left, figure 2 for tomorrows cardio, then maybe 3 for lifting day 2 Tuesday. So final review will be in a few days. (Being my first sponsored log, I neglected to save post #2 for the final reveiw )

Hit some HIIT Tonight. 15X40/20 cycles then coasted to an even 25 minutes @100% Max resist for the duration. 210 calories burnt.
Was honestly questioning if I wanted to do this tonight as the work day kind of sucked but had to ask "what is gonna help you meet your goal?" Downed the 2 scoop mix of Wyked and off we went. Was ready to go after it by the time I got my clothes changed at the "Y". The endurance this stuff gives me continues to amaze me. 15X 40/20 is another personal best for me.
Got under 3 scoops left, gonna dump them into the tub I bought and write my final review.

Final Review: (will also edit my first post to copy this there)
Ok, after about 3 weeks on Wyked, I feel I have gotten a good feel of what I can expect from it. I have mixed anywhere form 1-4 scoops in this grand experiment.
Taste: 10/10 - Hands down the best tasting PWO I have ever had, great lemonade flavor even when mixed with BCAA or with multiple scoops.
Mixability:10/10 - Dissolves easily in water by merely shaking the bottle I used. No lumping or clumping. The BCAA did foam some but did dissolve after about 15 - 20 minutes. (Not the Wyked's problem at all.)
Energy: 9/10 - I initially thought the energy was good but not exceptional although not beaten by other PWO's I have tried, Wyked held it's own quite nicely by comparison. But then as I considered other factors such as no GEEKED OUT feeling (even on 4 scoops), and no CRASH EVER, I felt these other considerations deserved to be factored in.
Focus:10/10 - Actually tended to get to my next set a bit faster when taking this. There was very little on my mind except killing that next set or movement.
Endurance: 10/10 - This is one area where this stuff really shines. My cardio endurance increased to a degree that the first time I noted it, I was amazed. (read the log if you want more details). There were often times after work outs that I wanted to keep lifting but only self discipline or not wanting to overtrain or needing to get home got me to pack it in.
Strength: 8/10 - another one that took my by suprise, as I do not generally associate PWO's with Strenght increase. None the less, we saw improvements with current PR's on my bench (280X2) and squat (405) and getting my dead lift over the 375 hump coming back from 3 weeks off of pulling due to an injury. Was very pleased with this.
Overall, great taste, effective and lives up to Taurus Nutrition's claims. Think they have a winner here. If you followed the log at all, you already know that I purchased more Wyked and other Taurus Products. Simply put, I am impressed with these folks and their work.
Thanks again to Taurus and all their great reps for giving me this opportunity and coming along for the journey.
