so i really notice the effects of my test lowering as teh week goes on, i inject tonight and my energy levels were def. lower today, however once i got goin in the gym i felt fine, but it is much harder to get going........ with that said had a VERY good quad/bis workout
I did bis in the morning then quads later on
for bis i did alot of the same things, 1 arm db curl, high cable curl e-z bar cable curl

I carb up every Saturday, train m/w/f. I do 30min cardio upon waking up then come home and smash. Difference is subtle, yet noticeable. The pump doesn't change but vascularity sets in quicker and seems to be more pronounced thru the day. Cosmetic, perhaps? But it also keeps me moving and doesn't turn into a carb coma.

10-18-2012 08:49 PM
no jacked today......just cardio, probably got around a week and a half left, not looking forward to running out lol but i will be sure to post a final review when finished........still enjoying the ride!
10-30-2012 10:34 PM
sorry for the lack of updates recently, jsut havent been feelin the love in here :-( anyways........
TASTE: - 9/10- only reason this isnt a 1 is cuz i tend to water down my preworkouts alot so it wasa little wateryhoweveroncei did a shot of it and it wasamazing and a def. 10/10
MIXABILITY - 9.5/10 - mixes very well with a few shakes but a little did sit on the bottom i noticed as my workout continued.
ENERGY - 9.5/10- very good clan long lasting energy, nothing to complain about here.........i am verystim tolerany ant 2 scoops was def. enough every workout!
Focus - 8.5/10 - the clean energy gave a great sense of focus but there were not really any focus specific ingredients which makes teh amount of focus still given quite impressive
PUMPS - 9/10 - The new ingrediens liekagmatine def.madea different in pumps as compared to the original jacked, also with the original i tended to crash at times but not with micro.
OVERALL!!!- 9/10 - i am a bit reluctant to give a 9/10 because it did give mechest paisn that i am still worried about, i cannot cimpletely blame themon jacked but i will follow it closely now that i will be taking a new preworkout for now. I was very impressed by the amount of clean energy i got however because like i said with teh old jacked i tended to crash.............overal i say that this is a def. improvementon the old jacked with increased energy, focus and pumps, and overal a solid preworkout as long as those chest pains are not from this product.
thanks again to usplabs for thei amazing opportunity and congrats on all your new products they all look very promising and look forward to trying a few of themin the future, already love me some modern bcaas when i can afford them lol
