    feeding the mucsles w/ MusclePharm's Amino1 (sponsored)


    Thank You MusclePharm for the chance to log this supplement!

    Got my tub of Amino1 Lemon Lime last night in the mail and could not wait to dig into it. Before I get to that though let me list what I am currently taking. SuperCissus, Fish Oil, Jack3d and German Creatine. I have a stack starting next week but am glad I have a few days to run this addition without anything else.

    Ok, on to it then.

    Outside In: Packaging is standard for a tub nothing really to report with the exception of the look. I really like the stark contrast between the green and black of the container....Just looks cool!

    Looks: The powder overall looks fine with a few larger pieces seen. Color inside matches the flavor outside (LemonLime) and the smell is not too strong. Slightly lemon and very tame.

    Mixing: Overall mixes very well. I use a bicycling water bottle and shake it. That being said only a few time could I feel some grit in my mouth.

    Taste: Taste is knocked out of the park. I was a bit concerned because a certain "electrolyte drink" of the same flavor is too salty tasting for me. I mixed it pre-workout (well before the gym) and had all intentions of drinking it intra workout. By the time I made it to the gym a third of it was gone because it TASTED SOOOO GOOD. I have to remember that in the future. I do not like to drink thing (aside from water) during my workouts because I usually get nauseous. Half way through my workout I finished the bottle and still thought the taste was as good as the first sip. I really like the Lemon Lime.

    Energy: I had more energy in the later part of my workout but can't attribute it to Amino1 just yet. I have to be sure it is not a placebo effect.

    Workout:
    Shoulder Press 115x5, 135x3, 145x2
    Dumbbell Shrug 80x10 5sets
    Dumbbell Upright Row 40x10 5 sets
    Dips bwx15 5 sets
    Pullups bwx8, bwx6, bwx5, bwx5
    Day by Day, we get better and better! Tillí we canít be beat Ė Wonít Be Beat!

    aiight, day two

    let me preface this by saying I am in the middle of changing from nights to days at work so needless to say I am tired!

    Had some DOMS from my back workout Friday morning (before the above workout) but when I hit the gym I felt good.

    had my Protein shake (ON CakeBatter) 30min pre-workout followed by scoop and a half of Jack3d. Mixed the Amino1 for my intra-workout.

    Workout:
    Alternating Incline Dumbbell Curls
    30x10
    35x10
    40x8
    40x6

    Hammer Curls
    35x10
    40x8
    45x7
    35x12

    Barbell Close Grip Bench
    105x20
    125x17
    125x15
    125x12

    Dumbbell Alternating Curls
    45x10
    40x8
    35x8
    35x10

    Standing Dumbbell Triceps Extension
    70x10
    70x10
    75x8
    80x7

    Barbell 21's
    barbell weight slow reps and bicep squeeze for burn 4 sets

    Crunches 25x2
    Leg Pull-Ins 25x2
    Oblique Crunches 15x2
    Plate Twist 10lbs 20x2

    ***Lifted at a new gym today and the dumbbell were tearing my calluses up** I wasn't able to hit as many curls and will be getting gloves to deal with that.

    Amino1 notes: Still loving the taste of this stuff, very refreshing during the workout and not overpowering. Despite being tired I still had gas left in the tank to hit lifts late. I didn't get the mental slipping that I normally get when I am tired, I can attribute this to the Amino1. I have been taking Jack3d for months now and know that it gets me ready for the gym and gives me good pumps but, I have experienced the mental slipping while lifting tired on Jack3d.

    Surprise Ingredient: I am by no means an expert on BCAA supps and can't say if others have this....that being said I love that Amino1 has Coconut Water Powder in it. The health benefits of Coconut Water abound +1 for adding this!

    ok, so made it to the hotel.
    I mixed up some Amino1 (no prew) and drank half of it before I made it to the treadmill. Man this stuff tastes great. I ran 1.5 miles and walked another .5 inclined then slammed the rest. I feel good despite sleeping like crap due to the change over. I noticed that I forgot to take my creatine today which I though was weird considering how vascular I am today. I wonder if the Amino1 is helping with that....hmmm.

    Going to hit the treadmill again tomorrow and will take my Amino1 then.

    day 4

    Long day sitting and listening to people speak, not bad training but a long draining day. I decided to only run a mile and just watch Monday Night Football. Relaxing in the room drinking water and then decided to spice up the water with Amino1. This stuff tastes so good I couldn't help myself.

    I haven't run in awhile so I expected some sore legs especially from sitting all day. I didn't get any sore muscles at all....NICE THANK YOU AMINO1.

    Couldnt sleep so i hit the hotel gym early today. 40 mins to a good all around pump....a bit of bi's, shoulders and chest followed by 1.5mi run. Good pump and felt great, mixed my Amino1 and drank it during the lifts.
    Taste is still spot on and recovery is fantastic!

    Day 6

    Woke up at 0645 hit the gym by 0800, mind you my bed time less than a week ago was 0800. I have to say that I expected soreness during my switchover due to lack of sleep but alas it has not come. I feel super saturated during my workouts and am up three pounds. My waist has not changed at all so the weight is all in my muscles!

    light week (Chest):

    Bench
    95x5
    125x5
    145x20

    Dumbbell Flat:
    40x15x4sets

    Decline Bench:
    135x10x4sets

    Dumbbell Rows:
    40x10x4sets

    Abs

    Amino1 notes: definitely nothing negative to say about Amino1, very satisfied up to this point with the product!

    that is the unfortunate thing...I've never used or tried BCAAs before this. I can tell you though from the myriad of flavors of supps I have tried this Lemon Lime is spot on. Even better than sports drinks!

    still going strong with Amino1


    main thing to note at this point is that I am drinking less water than I used to DURING my workout. I believe the Amino1 has me very hydrated to the point I am not craving water as much. I am still pounding over a gallon a day though.


    Workout:
    still light this week

    Shoulder Press
    65x5
    80x5
    95x15

    Barbell Shrug
    95x15x5sets

    Dumbbell Side Raise
    20x10x4sets

    Dips
    bwx15x5sets

    Chin Ups (assisted)
    four sets of 10, first 5 body weight and last 5 assisted (foot on bench for light push)

    I gotta say, I am half way through this and I am wondering why I never added BCAA's before. I love this stuff. Awesome hydration and super recovery. The way MusclePharm nailed this flavor I am anxious to try some of the others. On another note I am sad I am almost done with this tub

    no workout again today I went to the gym and was going to try but it is still too sore. So just as yesterday I will just mix up the Amino1 in a drink. NO issues there either...this stuff as I stated numerous times before tastes sooo good it is an awesome break from water. I actually drank mine yesterday with a meal.

    Hope I can get back in the gym soon. These back issues suck, I always have a few episodes a year where I am laid up or just stiff like I am now.

    Rest up man. The gym will always be there in the end. Back issues are NEVER something you want to ignore. I do some serious back stretching before I lift and even stretch in the mornings if I am stiff lol. Hope it gets better for you man.

    Yea I always try to get a good warmup and stretch in before I lift. I think my issue is I need to stretch more now. My body is not used to lifting first thing in the morning so I am super stiff. I know the gym will always be there but it is just frustrating being less than a week into a new stack and not being able to lift. I started a log of AnabetaElite/ErasePro/TestPowder, though I guess I should look at the bright side. At least it happened early before all the supps really start to kick in

    to note: I turn to my right side while sitting at work alot (very repetitious). Moving that way now hurts so I at least know that has something to do with it. I noticed that I was getting sore after standing barbell rows last week too. Might have to lower the weight on that workout for awhile.

    woke up feeling much better today and hit the gym at 430am. I am going to buy more Amino1 when the cash becomes available. I am really enjoying this stuff. To this point there are two main things that I have noticed:
    1)I feel better after my workouts much faster, like I could hit the gym all over again a few hours later.
    2)As I stated in an early post, I drink much less water DURING my workout due to feeling hydrated. I am still pounding a gallon or more day but I feel I hold it better during the workouts.

    Noticed that I have about three days left...


    Workout:

    Flat Bench
    165x5
    185x5
    215x11
    135x20

    Dumbbell Bench

    phew..yesterday was super long at work. I was so busy I ended up fasting from 9am to past 9pm because I didn't have time to eat. Needles to say I mixed up some Amino1 and it took the edge off the hunger! I have one scoop+ remaining and am sad to see it come to an end. I def need to get more of this stuff into my workouts. Though I have realized that I have not tried any other BCAA supps so I will get a few to compare them to this.

    ok, I was sick this weekend. I actually picked up a 24hr bug on the last day of my Amino1.

    I am very thankful to "pmiller383" and MusclePharm for the opportunity to log this fantastic product. I will be adding some more in the near future.

    Ending Notes:
    I have four main points I want to hit here.....

    Flavor: The taste is spot-on! The Lemon-Lime I received was outstanding. I could drink this stuff all day long for the taste alone. Was more like cool-aid then a supp!

    Hydration: I gradually started drinking less water DURING my workouts after taking Amino1. This stuff kept me feeling hydrated throughout my workouts.

    Endurance: I used Amino1 without adding anything new for about 4 days and noticed that I had a little more push at the end of my workouts. BCAA's are phenomenal in that respect.

    Recovery: DOMs were practically non-existent with Amino1 and when I did get some they were gone far quicker than normal.


    This was my first ever log on AM and I hope I contributed to a great company and provided a fair review of this product. Any criticism/advice is welcomed for use in future logs.

    Thanks Again to MusclePharm and Amino1
