  1. Formula-X Sponsored Review


    Cheers to Judgement Day and Athletix Sports for the opportunity to do a log of Formula-X. Just getting everything set up for when it arrives!

    I gave it a lot of thought i decided to do this run with only Formula-X All of the other logs are of stacks so lets see what happens when run solo. I tried DAA on it's own once prior and did not have all that much to say about it. I seemed to be one of those people who just didn't feel much from it, so i do not think there would be much worry of placebo effects on this one

    My plan for this run is to have a serving each morning on non training days and then have a serving intrawork out on training days. Lifting routine is a variation on the Steve Reeves' 3 day full body split. I am still recomping / lean bulking following the LG/IF set up.

    Primarily I am interested to see how it effects recovery during / post workouts and what effect it has on strength and gaining of LBM.

    I have a pretty good idea of what my max weight per number of reps/sets is currently and I am interested to see if the rate of increase changes any. Currently I am at 160 and right around mid 11% body fat.

  3. My tub just came in the mail!

    Inital Thoughts: Damn that is a small tub! It is liek the size of one of those family sized soup cans for a visualization.

    I will starting it tomorrow morning

    Today must be the day for supps, I also my tub of #beastmode that i won in a supp raffle . #bi-winning?

  4. Lucky dog maybe mine will come in today.

  5. mine was dated 9/30 Priority US mail, so you should get it today too I would think!

  6. day 1

    most likely used too much water

    The taste is mild - slightly tart hint of sweet , very much like crystal light. Mixes very easily no clumping or granuals after a few shakes.

    Yeah kinda tastes like Crystal light lemon, I don't use too much water when mixing it, about 350ml, it has a nice taste with that much.

  8. I tried mixing it using 350 ml of water. taste was maybe slightly stronger, still mixed as cleanly and easily. I kno it is early but i have to say that this has to be the best tasting BCAA product I have tried. Even slightly edges out Recover Pro and that is an awsome product.

    Gym day this afternoon - Have a scoop ready for intraworkout!

  9. Subbed.. DAA, LCLT, NAT, and 8:1:1 BCAA's sound very interesting!

    Yeah 8:1:1 ratio tastes gross + NAT and DAA isn't the best tasting bulk ingredients, so I myself is very impressed at the job Athletix has done making this Formula taste great!

  11. I am surprised at the taste for sure. I will say i feel pretty pumped and solid today.. not sure what to attribute it to but it is a good feeling

    Haven't tasted it yet. THough it would need to be pretty disgusting for me not to drink it
    Better flavouring is a pretty big plus though

  13. day one at the gym. cant say much yet. lifts were on par with reps / increases in weight. recovery was about normal for everything except my abs, which felt like they could keep going and going.

    solid pump for sure.

  14. If you wanna give it a try pre-workout as well go ahead! I've tried a few different dosings for it, the formula really allows many ways.

    Dosing 1- 1 scoop pre-workout

    Dosing 2- 1 scoop Intra-workout

    Dosing 3- half scoop pre-workout, half scoop intra-workout

    Dosing 4- 1 scoop pre-workout, 1 scoop intra


    All of them are very effective, at the moment I'm doing half scoop pre-workout, half scoop intra. Long workout sessions I'm doing 1 scoop intra.

  15. I am trying it 1 scoop in the morning every day - and then one intra on work out days. maybe on the weekends i will try taking my frist scoop pre work out and see if it makes much of a difference?

    Morning after gym update - feeling fine this morning.. nothing out of the ordinary in terms of muscle soreness. i never usually get bad DOMS so this is not that shocking. still feel nice and solid especially in my shoulders and arms, all in my head i know but still its nice

    If you wanna give that dosing a try go for it, the bottle won't last long, maybe try that dosing for the first week, then stick to intra.

  17. my problem is i only lift three days a week so would that allow enough time to load up?

  18. or just take it once a day (intra on traing days?)

    No that dosing could do last, it would last a bit longer, it will load up on 1 scoop a day, 2 scoops will do it faster but DAA only takes 12-14 days to load up at 3g a day.

    Yeah so try that then, 1 scoop in the mornings on off days. Training days do 1 scoop in the pre-workout, 1 scoop intra.

  20. Sounds like a plan

  21. Well I can't belive it. For the first time in as long as I can remember I over slept. It was a very deep restful sleep though. I did wake up around 4 something.. usually i would be awake from that point onward, but today i went right back to sleep and ended up getting up right about the time I need to get into the shower. Feel wide awake now though

  23. tis the truth for sure!

  24. weekly weigh in time.

    Weight is up exactly a pound from last week. Waist is the same or slightly down. #winning! Looking forward to the gym tonight. planning on trying a scoop of #beastmode preworkout tonight.

  25. Great lifting today Felt super pumped and strong lifts were slightly heavier - but recovery was amazing.

    i usually average a 7lb weight gain on daa...strength also goes up!!! try a scoop of formula-x preworkout, then another post workout-fantastic!!!

  27. i'm loving the results so far. taking straight DAA didn't do all that much for me but so far it seems to be working great!

  28. considering the lifting i was doing yesterday, not DOMS or other aches to speak of. ENjoying the lovely weather, windows open and there is still a cool breeze

    I took a daa product before and for some reason didn't get too much from it, but when I tried Formula-X I got way better effects, I'm thinking the LCLT really helps to increase the overall effects of DAA.

  30. I'm started to agree - the combo of things is definitely making a difference in effectiveness for me. trow in a PWO every once and a while and you feel unstoppable. now if only my bench would go up
