Have not got my shipment yet, but figured I would just start with some basics like my workouts and standard sups. In case it is not obvious, this is a sponsored log in that Taurus Nutrition supplied their product and I will be supplying the experience and description there of.
I run a 4 day split, upper, lower, upper, lower, usually on Sundays, Tuesdays. Thursdays and Fridays. Tend to do cardio 3 times a week, Sundays, Mondays Thursdays. Either HIIT or 5 stage hills profile.
Will be finishing up a run of and alpha T-2 next week.
Standard sups that I will continue are: , Flax Seed/ , Protein.
Dietary wise, I tend to run between 2400 and 2800 cals, rotating carb target depending on the days load. May go to 150 ( or a bit higher) on deadlift and squat days, try to keep it below 125 on upper body days and around 75 carbs on off/cardio only days. Fat target is 130-150, protein generally runs 215 - 260 depending on day.
My first log entry will include basics such as taste, ease of mixing, focus, drive, energy and and any other observations.
Any more experienced loggers are more than welcome to provide input as to what else to add. If you sub or just browse, feel free to ask any questions if you are wondering something I have not covered.
Have been on SuperPump 250 and Lit up. Would not say I am a "stim junkie" but I do like some extra motivation when in the dungeon.
If you can't tell, I am excited by this opportunity and want to thank all the great peeps at Taurus Nutrition for giving me this chance.
Hope you all enjoy the ride it is gonna get WYKED!

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.
: 10/10 - This is one area where this stuff really shines. My cardio 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.
