How Resolve Lit-Up Christmas - A Sponsored Log

  1. I get too relaxed with it for that to work for me, but it is a good idea. I have used nicotine for appetite suppression, quite effectively; but I think that's common knowledge...

  4. Dude, I just now realized that Lit-up is an actual supplement. Wow. I've been out of this game for way too long.

  5. Okay, so you say nicotine is a good idea pre-workout. - I've done my research, but am curious...being the science-geek (don't confuse "geek" as a negative term; I'm a geek in respects in my own regard with tech related issues, and it's very, very good) that you are, tell me why YOU feel nicotine has a positive effect on training.

    In all honesty, I feel like a dumbars for buying an e-cig, only becuase it's so awesome. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not supposed to turn a non-smoker into a smoker. - Oh, how they've been so successful in their marketing.

  6. Well, I wouldn't recommend smoking - a patch, or gum, something like. A low dose used in conjunction with some caffeine would be real nice, here's why:

    The e-cig I'm using has no tar, carbon monoxide, etc. - It's pure nicotine and propolene glycol (which produces the vapor; don't believe anyone that says it's water vapor). I seriously love thing thing.

    Low dose? I guess that's an option, but I'm sucking on the medium dose, and was going to buy the high-dose cartomizers.

  8. I can't advocate nicotine pre workout. In fact I recommend people not use it for at least 15 min prior or post exercise. Including myself (I dip). It's a vasoconstrictor, narrows arteries, thickens the blood, raises heart rate, and raises blood pressure. Just to name a few. All things that do not correlate with a healthy workout. In my humble opinion.

    Sources? - I've only discovered it to increase bloodflow.

    Keep in mind I'm not dipping, smoking, etc. - There is no tobacco involved.

    Now, yes, I love cigars, but I'm talking about an electronic cigarette throughout the day.

  10. It's dose dependent Copycat, just like it is with caffeine. Plus, the vasodilatory effect of activity should overcome that aspect unless you take a ton of nicotine.

    I just figure on a keto diet, having a bit of extra lipolysis here and there can't hurt. If you'd prefer that be at times other than your workout, that's totally your prerogative.

  11. I'm on my phone so finding the source ain't easy right now. I'll try and dig it up for ya though if I can. I helped my wife look this stuff up on pubmed and such for a table clinic she had to do for her dental hygiene school.

  12. So, decided I'd mix things up and stacked some RPM I had lying around with Lit-Up for my leg workout yesterday. It's a pretty good combo - the effects are less intense, but longer lasting.

    I took 4 RPM and 1 scoop Lit-Up. Rather than being mentally amped up and focused, like a higher dose of Lit-Up gives, the combo gave me more of a clear headed effect with lasting endurance. Relaxed, it was nice.

    Anyways, here's what I did:

    Hack Squats: 1p/s x30, 2p/s x30, 3p/s x20, 3p/s x20

    Split Squats supersetted w/Walking Lunges: Bodyweight for both, 3x15-20 each

    1 Leg Curls ss'd w/Machine Reverse Hypers: 3x100x15 for each

    1 Leg Extensions: 3x70x30 per leg

    Next I did some of these:


    And may I say they are a humbling experience. I used a 25lb DB just to try them out - I'd do as many as possible, drop the DB and then do reverse hypers off the same bench to failure. Magnificent and highly recommended for gluts/hams as a finisher.

    Limped over the calf machines and went to town for about 12 sets, then finished wit some time on the stair climber. I have trouble walking today.

  13. Bah, so I've been having big abdominal/lower back issues for the last few days; pain's been flaring up BAD. And I still have a week before I see the spine specialist, so I'm likely out of the gym for a while.

    I will post a final review here, and start a new thread with it in the AppNut section, as I feel LitUp deserves more attention that it is currently receiving.

    I gotta try this out and see how it is

    2. Sprints done on a spin bike - I like them more than the typical exercise bike because they have nothing electronic.

    3.The stim feeling was not as good. Still provided usable energy, but the mental drive that is Lit-up's best point in my opinion was not nearly so pronounced

    4. Do you mean fried zucchini? I love fried zucchini, but dont think I've ever had zucchini fries if they're something different.
    1. Will do
    2. Ahh got ya
    3. Yes the mental drive is great with Litup. Maybe it was the synephrine and/or geranium in wyked overpowered it?
    4. You slice the zucchini into fries and bake them. I drizzle EVOO over them and sprinkle cayenne pepper and old bay over them

    I decided to make use of this environment and had an AWESOME conditioning workout up here today:

    My Mountainman Workout:
    Took 1.5 scoops of Lit-Up about half and hour before starting, and let my little brother (17) use some as well. We chilled til we felt in kick in, then got started with the fun.

    Wheel Barrow Runs Uphill: approximately 20yards with as many cinder blocks in the barrow as we could fit. We did this each 4 times.

    Wheel Barrow Farmers Walks: from one end of our 3 acres to the other. Twice each.

    Tire/Sledehammer fun: Beat the tire 15 time with one grip, then change grip and repeat. 3 times each.

    Wind sprints uphill: the same 20yards as in the beginning of the workout.

    Simple, straightforward, and it drained us. My brother plays soccer now, so his conditioning is much better than mine currently, but the sledgehammer work really took it's toll on him. Nonetheless, he enjoyed his experience with Lit-Up. I thought it worked quite well, too, for this kind of workout - which was more endurance based than what I'd previously used it for. Some pre-workouts are better suited to one style of workout over another, but Lit-Up is holding it own in multiple categories.

    Tomorrow I'll be hitting legs, since I missed a leg day on Christmas Eve. I'll be at some old friends' home after that and will try to update, but I haven't seen them in a year and have a lot of catching to do.

    Thanks for following along everyone and I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
    Sounds like you had a awesome workout brotha! Very Rocky IV-ish..

    Do you do these strongman type workouts often?

    Sorry to hear about the medical issues. Do you have an idea of what caused it? - I apologize if it has been discussed previously, I'm sorta new here.

    Best hypothesis at this point is a pinched nerve in the lower back. It's been causing stomach/intestinal issues, as well as hip and lower back pain. It comes and goes, but is definitely aggravated by heavy spinal loading, so Doc said "No mas" to squats and DLs til it gets figured out. That's why the only squats/dls I've been doing have been for conditioning work with super light weight.
