    Taman's getting wyked baby!


    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 erase and alpha T-2 next week.

    Standard sups that I will continue are: Orange Triad, Flax Seed/Fish Oil, Myofusion 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 endurance 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!


    ______________________________ ______________________________ _______________

    FINAL REVIEW:

    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.

    If you want an example re layout for a log, check out some of mine to get an idea. You don't need to post daily, but an update at least 3-4 times a week is desired. Each update should note things specific to Wyked re effects, etc. (you'll understand if you look at any of my logs).

    Any questions you have along the way, feel free to ask.

    On another note, how are you finding the Erase and Alpha-T2? I absolutely LOVE Erase (and Alpha-T2), using them both as staples, and can't wait until I get some more!

    Actually Rosie, I took some of my ideas from one of your reviews of a to be unnamed PWO you did

    As to the Erase and Alpha, it really seems to be helping me firm up. My weight loss has slowed the last two weeks but I have noticed some subtle increases in definition in my upper chest, delts and calves. Have not noticed any problems with joint aches (or should I say my tendonitis in my elbows has not gotten worse?)

    Coolness (you are allowed to mention other products in here, LOL)

    Just because weight loss slows it does not mean that FAT loss has slowed - you could be adding some lean mass whilst losing the bodyfat, meaning scale weight might not change at all. Nice to see no joint issues - you must be dosing Erase right for you, then.

    Even if not lifting, you can always use a scoop and give a "First Impressions" feedback post if you like

    Ok, mixed a scoop with about 14oz water this am and drank about 9:30 before work. Taste is 10/10, Very refreshing and tasty lemon flavor (and no, I don't mean furniture polish lemon flavor!)

    Mixibility/Solubility: 8/10. Mixed easily with no clumping, however one thing I did note was small black particulates that would not disolve, almost looked like tiny seeds. No biggie to me, as long as some one call tell me what they are. (Still waiting on more info on this)

    Not going to judge much for effect at this time as it was only one scoop and I will not be lifting today, however:

    Although it may have been placebo/psychosomatic, I did note a mild euphoria, not like a high or anything, just very confident, almost an "alpha male" type sensation. Focus has been laser like, whatever I am trying to accomplish, I certainly like this aspect. No evidence of any type of crash thus far.

    In all, taste is awesome, ease of mixing is good, effect is TBD but initial impressions are moving positivley.

    The black particles are the emulsified bitter orange extract. What happens is that the water picks up the synephrine out of it, but the other 80% is insoluable so it just sort of floats in there undissolved.

    Ok, get to rev this **** up and take it out for a real spin tonight. Started with 3 scoops mixed with 5g BCAA (2:1:1 ratio) and about 18oz water. The BCAA did foam a bit at first but dissolved after about 10-15 minutes. Pounded down about half of it on my way to the Y from work, rest I mixed with more water and sipped like an inter workout (just a practice I have adopted lately.)

    Here is how the work out went:

    Did 4 minutes cardio warm up pre-weights


    # Exercise Name Set Lbs. Reps
    1 Barbell Bench Press - Medium Grip
    #1 235 6
    #2 235 3
    #3 225 6
    #4 225 4
    #5 195 8
    #6 165 12
    Like last week, these were dead presses, set up in a power rack with pins at the bottom which is where the rep started with slow negs. Good stuff!

    2 Assisted Pull up
    #1 245 5
    #2 235 6
    #3 235 6
    #4 205 6
    Noted weight is body wgt +shoes etc minus assist weight. Last set was done chin up style.

    3 Incline Dumbbell Press
    #1 180 8
    #2 180 6
    90X2 = 180

    4 Straight-Arm Dumbbell Pullover
    #1 75 12
    #2 85 8
    5 Close-Grip Bench Press
    #1 180 10
    #2 180 7

    6 Dumbbell One Arm Triceps Extension
    #1 35 6
    #2 35 6
    #3 30 8
    #4 30 8
    Even sets are left arm, odd sets are right

    7 Barbell Curl
    #1 90 10
    #2 90 8

    8 Preacher Curl
    #1 65 12
    #2 65 11
    Inside grip


    Here is what I noted: Energy and Focus were good. Despite 3 scoops, I was not geeked (as I have noted before I tend to have high initial tolerances to things being an addict in recovery). Energy and sense of well being were good and steady. Motivation was excellent but not over the top, aggression was good also, helped me squeeze out a few more reps here and there.

    In all fairness, nothing about the above was "far superior" to other PWO's, but Wyked did at least match up to the best I have tried. (This is not a bad thing!)

    Here is were it does shine: Taste! As noted before, the taste is great, even the bitterness of the BCAA was covered up.

    Here is the part that really surprised me: My cardio endurance was off the hook. I use a Nustep Cross trainer ( I know that may be a joke to some of you, but there are reason's this is my preferred cardio device) and I do push my self on it. Tonight, I did 15 30/30 HIIT cycles at 100% then 80% max resistance. Usually, I have to really suck it up to get to 12 cycles, but I had no doubt at 6 that I would be pushing to 15 tonight. What was whipping my ass Monday was hardly making me loose my breath tonight! No, I was not slacking. One of the features of these devices is a gauge that monitors step per minute (SPM) averages. I exceeded it's max capacity on almost every cycle. It would read 254 SPM and then all of a sudden a big fat 'E" would appear, which I assume stood for error.

    Even after that, I still felt motivated that if I had more to do in my routine, I would have had the motivation to take it on.

    We are now past 4 hrs post ingestion and no crash thus far. My only real concern at this time is whether I will be able to sleep

    What remains to be seen is the "cumulative effect" I see other loggers note. If that occurs here also, it would definately be a distinguishing point.

    In summary: Compares favorably to other PWO's for focus, energy and motivation. Very impressive on taste and endurance on cardio. Possible cumulative impact to be evaluated. Given that this stuff runs about 5-18 dollars less than anything even reasonably close, I'd say Taurus has a winner on it's hands. That's my first take!

    endurance is great for me too.

    more volume equals more gain, imo.

    Ok, sleep was a bit of an issue . I usually crash around 10 or 10:30 but actually got back up and poked around till 12:30. So, as a note, you may want to have at least 7-8 hrs until bed time for this stuff. Could be I just need to get used to it. Time will tell.

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

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    #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.

    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
    #3 300 8
    #4 320 8
    Good depth, kept the hands off of the knees.

    3 Calf Press On The Leg Press Machine
    #1 640 20
    #2 640 19
    #3 640 13

    4 Leg Press
    #1 640 8
    #2 640 8
    #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.
