For anyone living under a rock the past couple of months, here's some info on what this product will hopefully do.

What is Ursobolic?
Ursobolic is an amazing body recompostioning agent that contains the active ingredient Ursolic acid. Ursolic acid is a chemical compound found in many plants and it belongs to class of compounds called pentacyclic triterpene acids.
In June of 2011 a landmark paper was published in the prestigious journal Cellular Metabolism, and the research was performed by scientists from the University of Iowa. In this paper they exploited techniques that involved gene technology to identify ursolic acid as a potent muscle builder and fat burner. Ursolic acid was shown to block the muscle wasting caused by starvation and denervation (severing of the nerves to a muscle). Ursolic acid was also shown to accelerate muscle growth by as much as 15% when fed to normal mice. Interestingly, fat loss occurred simultaneously and at a rate practically inversely proportional to muscle gain. It was almost as if fat was turning into muscle!
This potent ingredient has the potential to transform your physique even without a change in diet. The researchers found that one of its main mechanisms is through enhancing the expression of muscular IGF-1 gene. The local production of IGF-1 in muscle is perhaps the single most instrumental process in the muscle hypertrophy response as it initiates the key steps of satellite cell recruitment into new myonuclei and protein synthesis via the kinase Akt.
Ursolic acid shrinks fat cells. It is believed that it achieves this by both enhancing lipolysis (fat burning) and blocking fatty acid synthesis. It my also affect fat stores by blocking the cortisol activating enzyme 11b-HSD1. With Ursobolic, the increased energy demands of simultaneous growing muscles will be fed by the body fat stores.
Interestingly, Ursolic acid has also been shown to be an effective blocker of the enzyme aromatase, so it has the potential to control estrogen production and maximize testosterone release.
What can I expect from Ursobolic?
First of all, Ursolic acid is not a bulking product. Yes it builds muscle but it does not put massive amounts of weight on you. This is because muscle growth will be accompanied by fat loss. The scale may not change much but the mirror will reflect what is going on – a dramatic change in body composition. You may experience a little bit of appetite suppression with Ursobolic as your body will be utilizing fat stores more efficiently for energy production.
Ursobolic is fat soluble so for maximum absorption it should be taken with meals that contain a little bit of fat. The product is non-hormonal and safe, so it does not have to be cycled.
Would love to show the pic of my Ursobolic stash but apparently I need 50 posts to put up an image so I guess that will have to wait.

Here's some info about myself:
27 years old
Been lifting on and off since high school, have been at it hard for the past 1.5 years, mainly focusing on powerlifting but I don't wanna look like the typical powerlifter. I'd like to keep my bodyfat low and just look like a beast year round.
Right now I definitely have some fat to lose in my waist, and overall my bodyfat is higher than I'd like it to be.
Some stats from this morning:
Abs (around belly button, not flexed): 34.25"
The bicep, chest, and thigh measurements were taken first thing this morning before eating anything. I was flexing when measuring. I measured myself so they may not be 100% accurate.
The measurement around my waist was taken first thing this morning, but not flexed, just exhaled and measured.
According to my Tanita scale, bodyfat is at 17.6% this morning, I doubt it's accurate, but I'll use this as a baseline for tracking progress. Waist measurement will be important too.
Typical calorie intake is 3500 on workout days and 3100 on off days. Macros are around 45% carbs, 30% protein, 25% fat.
I will be running this log for 8 weeks, dosage will start at 9 caps per day but may increase depending on results. I will be bulking throughout this log, and my workouts are designed to increase strength more than muscle size. With that being said, I may not get the results that others would if using this on a recomp or cut, but I'm excited to see what will happen.

I took "before" pics today but I'm not able to post them yet, I will once my post count gets up, or if a mod can do it for me I can give them the link.
Just took my first 3 caps. I probably won't update this everyday since there probably won't be a whole lot to say initially, but I'll definitely keep it as detailed as possible.

At 5'8 and 182 do you really need to loose much fat?. Do you know you bf percentage or did I miss that in your post?. How many bottles do you have and what is the recommended dosage?
09-24-2011, 02:07 PM
Bodyfat is probably in the 15-16% range if I had to guess. My bodyfat scale says 17.6% first thing this morning, but it's always higher in the morning, so I'll just be using it to track changes.
Once I get my post count up I'll post the pics I took today. Basically my goal is to continue bulking while keeping fat increases to a minimum.
I've got 3 bottles right now, I'll need to get another to make this a full 8 weeker. Recommended dosage is 9-18 caps per day, but it's going to be a while before we know what dosages are best. From the results PA had, 9 caps/day should be sufficient to see results so I'll start on the low end and work up if needed.

Apparantly this is more of a cutter/recomper than bulker, you using any NAC or vit C to counter potential damage to your swimmers?
09-24-2011, 02:18 PM
That was fast! I wont have mine till Tuesday. haz a sad
ALL NATURAL, ALL POWERFUL!
09-24-2011, 02:24 PM
I'm taking a multi everyday, but not taking any additional Vit C., and no NAC at this time.
Really not taking much else at this time, mainly protein powder, multi, fish oil, cissus, and toco-8.

In for this. Ursobolic has me intrigued so I hope this log goes well.
Cutting all summer, cycle in September

Do not trust a scale to tell you your body fat percentage. A caliper is more accurate, and even when using a caliper it takes a lot of practice to measure correctly. It also depends on the calipers....Good luck though, I hope this product works as well on humans as it does rats!

I agree with other posters, the mirror is truly your best bet. When I stacked BF and XF my size wasn't changing at all at 4.5k cals a day but the mirror seemed to think otherwise. If this product is as awesome as it claims then you may end up losing weight even if you have plenty of fat stores to go. Seems to be lots of claims of semi-supressed appetite from increased fat oxidation. Idunnolol but it will be nice to see some logs
