    @BBG - thanks brother, much appreciated.
    dunno what bf% is right now - i know it's more than the 8% i wanted to stay under this off-season.
    if i work my plan to a T, this oughtta be about the highest bf i carry this winter.

    @CAT - welcome friend.
    to answer your question - Axon does not compare to other stims..imo there really is no comparison.
    off the top - you take this w/ food!
    clean energy, no ups/downs/or crashes; no mad energy rush that steadily disappears or (worse yet) suddenly disappears, leaving you groggy and tired... just smooth and consistent for hours an end.
    no problems sleeping (can turn it off when i want)..

    Sounds like my type of stim. I hate the up and down stim effect. I like to just cruise in a nice buzz groove all day.

    Strongly agree with this... Axon has become my go-to stim. Extremely underrated in my opinion.

    2-WEEK REVIEW: well, there has been no letdown from week 1 results, and things have only gotten better. thanksgiving was a pain-free affair, and workouts have been just splendid. i am still amazed at the progress in my shoulder - i really felt the pain issues and limited ROM were permanent from too much activity (specifically tennis 6mo out of the yr), but the improvements made in just 2 short weeks is astounding.
    elbow twinges are non-existent now, and legs are feeling fine..still feeling a nice general sense of well-being as well. altho i started up a PH recently, i still credit Achilles here, as it is different from the alpha "yeahhhhh buddy i feel kick-ass!" well-being you get from elevated hormone levels..

    i am not 100% yet - indeed, i can only imagine if i was taking couple weeks off to rest + Achilles, i can envision it..
    rest is not an option right now, and Achilles is gold for what i need.

    mid-week update..
    everything cracking along just fine, body/joints feeling great (even if i'm a lil bloated from dietary excursion).
    mauled chest SAT, legs yesterday (ATG squats the highlight), fixing to demolish delts and agonize some abs this morning.

    had to update for this:

    so yesterday i saturated shoulders with load, had some good volume as well.
    4x8/8/6/6 seated military press
    3x12/10/10 front DB raise
    3x12 lateral raise
    3x12 bent-over raises
    2x12 front shrugs
    2x10 rear shrugs
    dint get abs in (was bushed), but i'm not upset if i don't get in direct ab work during off-season. i rarely focus on stomach unless i'm close to a show.

    anyway - point is, my shoulders are silky smooth feeling today, no pain at all, no tightness, no clicking..hell if i dint know better i'd almost say there was no workout yesterday..
    crazy.

    3-WEEK REVIEW: at the risk of sounding repetitive i have curbed updates, but status is: nothing has changed here. i'm still getting great relief and pain-free movement going on..able to lift heavy weights without aches and pains..
    (the only thing was ONCE AGAIN in training yesterday, i felt twinge in my R forearm, same thing i felt couple weeks back. it went away next day back then, and it appears almost gone here this morning, but still..we'll see how that goes)

    SUMMATION: my high hopes for this product have been exceeded.
    i have already procured my next month's supply of Achilles, as i wish to stay protected thruout this off-season of srs training.

    odds & ends, in this last week of review..
    awoke this morning looking, well, pretty good and feeling, well - pretty awesome..
    couple dietary maneuvers to tighten things down last couple days has resulted nicely, look harder than i should, development coming along fine.
    for my diet intake, i've been running a lean gain caloric mode for a certain time, then ebb things back down to maintenance or just below for a shorter timeframe, before i flow back into excess. i notice this does the best job of keeping my bf stabilized and at a level where i am comfortable with.

    still feeling very alpha (from my 1-Alpha)..strength and training are great, dietary #s have been nailed, and...
    the joints feel like i'm a youngster again.

    BONUS ENTRY!


    up early to do some legwork before a long day of work..
    (dint get legs in yesterday, took day off)
    thought i'd share a recipe this morning, as i make these pancakes for breakfast.
    no pic, cam needs batteries.

    2 scoops tasty vanilla protein
    3 egg whites
    1/4 cup dry oatmeal
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    enough water to make a batter consistency

    directions:
    mix oats with 1/4 cup water and microwave for 1min
    add remaining ingredients and add water to batter consistency
    spray skillet w/ Pam
    cook in skillet until bubbles form on top, then flip.
    optional: top w/ sugar-free syrup or berries

    yum


    depending on the protein you use..my macros look something like this:
    365cals 53p/17c/8f
