Take 3: Today I used 2 even scoops, in exactly 16 oz. of water and it was an improvement from using 20 oz, and 24 oz. But it still didn't taste that good IMHO. Within 10 minutes I started to notice the beta tingling. Then I was getting in the zone about 30mins after taking it. Started my workout aprox 50min after finishing the drink. I like to let my stomach be completely settled and ready before starting.
The lift started out fine. But after ony a couple sets I felt like I was coming down from my preworkout high. Before I even finished all of my sets for my first exercise, I felt like I was back to normal. My lifts were decent, and I didn't make any progress from last week, normally at least one of my sets would show progress, but today there was none.
After lifting (since I'm cutting/recomping), I usually do 25-40min of cardio, or play some basketball. Today was basketball. Usually, no matter how hard of a lift day it is, if my legs are fine, I can loosen up and get into a good rythem on the court. I consider myself to be pretty athletic. Today was a quite possibly the worst day on the court I ever had. I just completely felt lethargic. I shot around for a few minutes and got stretched out, but as soon as I started playing full court, my energy was gone. My explosiveness wasn't there, my coordination was off, and my shoulders didn't loosen up, they just bothered me the entire time. First play of the first game: Our team makes a steal, I get the pass on the fast break and I go up for a uncontested dunk, I think my quad failed, my knee buckled, and I completely blew the shot. I was literally miserable all day on the court. I had no answer for what was going on.
I'm really starting to think I'm not cut out for White Flood. I've been giving it the benefit of the doubt so far, but there has been too many consecutive bad workouts. I think I'm gunna try and take a scoop of one of my other preworkouts tomorrow, and see if the lethargic feeling is still there.
