  1. Pulled from the Matrix w/'Red Pill'; PES AnaBeta01




    I am highly fortunate enough to have been granted access to a run of AnaBeta. HUGE thanks to NattyD/PES for this.

    Goals: lean bulk, to add LBM
    Diet: will be eating big and for the most part ‘clean’, will (to the best of my abilities) limit sweets/refined sugars.
    Training: (fasted training) weights 4x’s/week using an FST7-esque model (although I do like variety and switching up often). Doing 2 days cardio/core

    M-Chest/Bi
    T- Legs
    W- Back/Tri
    Th- cardio/core
    F- Legs/traps
    Sat- cardio/core
    Sun-Off/stretch

    Other Supps:
    APS Mesomorph
    APS creatine nitrate (4 caps PreWO)
    Glycergrow (2 scoops PreWO/1 scoop Intra)
    BC+EAA (1 serv preWO), (1 serv Intra)
    IntraFuse (2 scoops, Intra)
    ON’s Hyrdobuilder (1 scoop PostWO)
    LipoTropic & various other proteins, multi...

    AnaBeta: (4 caps/day with 1 cap taken PreWO, 1 caps postWO w/pro/carbs, other 2 caps taken with meals that contain carbs/pro)

    Back in shortly with Today's WO/thoughts...but can tell you this...it's going to be an awesome ride

    Notes: Took 1 cap with PreWO, roughly 45-50 mins before first workset. Kept the pace going fairly quick, limited rest and was able to keep focus/intensity high throughout (which was rather high to begin with) the workout. The pump was AWESOME, similar to what XFA provides, very solid. Surprisingly, did not sweat nearly as much as I had been the last 3 weeks, especially surprising since I did not work out this past Sat/Sun and ate a good deal of food along with sodium, Fri night, Sat night and some on Sunday.
    I’ll really be interested in what kind of repartitioning effects Anabeta has, I’ve not really noticed much from the few I’ve tried in the past (P-slin, Anabolic pump, ‘Slin)

    Going to be "an awesome ride" indeed!

    Looking forward to seeing how you find AnaBeta-01 compared to other nutrient repartitioners you have used.

  8. Tues 5-3-11 Legs


    Worked Legs today, didn’t get a chance to get some BB front/back squats thrown in like I was hoping since the squat & half rack were being used pretty much the whole time (will get these in on Fri). But worked volume & little to no rest time...lead off with calf raises, then pre exhaust stacked set of leg extensions right into some supersets of single legged squats, BW wide to narrow squats, Nautilus leg press for a few rounds...tossed in some sissy squats, leg curls, hip adductors, lunges...lunges...& lunges...had a solid, well rounded pump, even feeling solid & larger in upper body. Noticed slight increase in urinations yesterday & this morning...slight hunger going up but not nearly as bad as I thought (and feared) it might...but even so, the cravings for sweets/junk isn’t all that strong. No real or at least noticeable body temp increase. I did find today & yesterday that time to warm up prior to working out is/was cut down, seems that muscles/joints warm up sooner & the pump onset is almost immediate...and another day of focused aggression.

    Dosing wise of Anabeta, here’s the schedule that seemed to manifest:
    *5am 1 cap PreWO
    *7:15ish 1 cap PostWO (1 scoop hyrdo-builder immediately after WO) 45-60 mins later ½ - ¾ cup oatmeal, ½ scoop LipoT protein, 1 pear or banana
    *11:30 1 cap lunch
    2pm snack (fat/pro)- no cap
    *4:30/5pmish 1 cap dinner
    8pmish- snack (fat/pro) – no cap

  9. I have scanned a couple of times but can't find any starting statistics like weight, body fat etc. Other than what is listed under your avatar obviously. Is this correct as of starting?

    Am I blind?!

    Notes: thoroughly worked and thoroughly pumped...UP! Love it. Went out with a friend last night and had some chicken enchiladas, beans, rice, chips, salsa...had taken a cap of Anabeta about 30-40 mins prior, didn’t experience any bloat that I would typically get with a carb heavy meal such as that...very nice! Still have not experienced any extreme hunger pains between meals. Body temp/thermo effect, I’d say is slightly higher. Although, haven’t been sleeping the greatest all this week, which might contribute (?)....keep waking up through the night...and when I do, I'm alert...but no problems falling back asleep within a few mins, just annoying....and had some crazy dreams last night I’d normally get when using a GH booster prior to bed...weird...
  12. Thurs 5-5-11


    slowed things down a bit today due to being sore all over and popped in the StretchX disc from the p90x series....good stuff here and I always feel better after doing it. I went ahead an popped 1 cap Anabeta prior and still managed to get a pump, esp when doing arm circles...

    Side question...just curious...does anything in anabeta exhibit any anti-inflammatory properties that Natty/DA can share? I really think a stack of this and XFA would just be freaaaking awesome...

    Diet wise, I'm not seeing/feeling any fat spillover, going to slightly up the cals...

  17. 'Why, Mr. Anderson? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting for something? For more than your survival? Can you tell me what it is? Do you even know? Is it freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Anderson. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Anderson? Why? Why do you persist?'

  23. Fri 5-6-11 Quads/traps/sh


    Still had some lingering soreness today, particularly upper back...triceps and some in legs...don’t get me wrong I LOVE the feeling ...but come on already! I wound up doing basically full body but with heavier weight emphasis on calves, quads, traps, shoulders....tossed in some light deadlifts just to work on form.
    I popped 2 caps Anabeta preWO, definite difference...increased sweating for sure, perhaps added aggression even...hard to say for sure, b/c (after some going back n forth in a thread related to preWO nutrition and training fasted & now paranoid about it) I also experimented with eating a banana and ½ scoop protein about 15-20 mins prior to taking the preWO & supps today.... will drop that for Monday...but stick with 2 caps AnaBeta preWO, 1 w/lunch, 1 w/dinner....

    Which leads me to a question to throw out to all of you...and how much LBM gains I might be limiting myself training in a (near) fasted state...I know there are lots of theories out there and some prefer to train fasted others not...and I do believe it’s ‘optimal’ to eat a balanced preWO meal 1-2 hrs before a workout to maximize LBM gains....it’s just that training first thing in the morning is really my only option and getting up at 3:30-4am is NOT appealing....and is why I use ~30g of BCAA/EAA from preWO thru IntraWO....and then on the other hand along the same line the whole eating close to working out, releasing insulin, negating the fat burning, GH elevation, stim blunting effects & me having been an obese kid/teen having a phobia of regaining fat.....

    Here’s my layout

    5am wake –
    PreWO-
    1 scoop mesomorph/CN
    3 scoops glycergrow (which is listed as 6g ‘fat’)
    1 serving BC+EAA (=10g)
    2 anabeta

    ~5:45 working out
    Intra-
    2 scoops Intrafuse (which is hydrowhey + leucine)(cals 50, 4g carb, 8g pro)
    1 serving BC+EAA (=10g)
    1 scoop glycergrow (2g ‘fat’)

    Workout done ~7am
    1 scoop Hydrobuilder

    45-60 mins later
    ½ scoop Lipotropic
    ½ cup oatmeal
    1/2 – ¾ cup raisin bran

    3 hours later lunch....3 hours later snack...3 hour later dinner....3 hours later prebed snack (LipoT + several bites of real coconut)....

    Soooo, opinions? I know ultimately the answer is ‘whatever works best for MY body’....so more just wondering if y’all think I’m protecting muscle from being broken down enough to build LBM effectively...

    IMO, as long as your nutrition throughout the rest of the day is on target for gains, then I see no reason why you would be "limiting" your LBM gains by training in a fasted or near fasted state. Personally, I've trained fasted and unfasted, and it hasn't made a difference to my progress, whether wanting muscle gains or fat loss. Unless you have done both (eating the same amount and training the same, the only difference being training either fasted or unfasted), you cannot say whether or not you are possibly "limiting" your maximal gaining potential. What is "optimal" for one person is not necessarily going to be the same for another, and there are always anomalies to any "general" or "established" and "accepted" theories.

    Notes: Couple of technical issues on Inc BB (arms flaring out too much), but other than that I kicked this workouts ace. Huge pump and added some slight lb increases...always a good feeling.
    To compare Friday’s dosing and what effects it gave, I dosed 2 caps AnaBeta with PreWO today...I DO like it...I might play around with it some, but given NattyD being the expert on this one, will mostly adhere to the original dosing guidelines...
    Diet: decided yesterday that I will cut out all candy/dessert foods for a while and see what that does...although I wasn’t eating that much sugar/junk...it’s less tempting to eat (and I have binging tendencies) if I just cut it out all together....

    Start of week 2 weight: 178 (+1 lb)

    This ^^ is the dosing pattern I started with last week...but then after reading MrB's 2 cap preWO experience was trying that out...given that you are the expert on AnaB and know the in's/out's of its attributes, would you say the 1/1/1/1 dosing would be better suited to me in my situation (fasted training)..or just that's how it works best for yourself and the majority of users?
