  1. You wanna go night night!?!? A LiGHts Out Log


    Hola mi amigos,

    I was one of the lucky winners of the Lights Out? What the heck is in that? GTFIH! promo. I wasn't required to complete a log of the product, but I figured it was the least I could do to thank iForce.

    Why are you starting this log now when you won the product over a month ago? Well, I am in the midst of recovering from ankle surgery and I wanted to wait until I could get back in the weight room to begin. I spent over seven non-weight-bearing weeks in a boot and on crutches. Needless to say, it wasn't a fun couple of months. I'm finally back in the weight room, and it is amazing how much muscle you lose during that time. Losing fifteen pounds of body weight is definitely not a confidence booster. Along with losing weight, performing my Olyimpic lifts have made me feel like I have never weight lifted in my life.

    So, this is where LiGHts Out comes into play. An integral piece of the puzzle that will help me return to where I was before my surgery will be stellar, quality sleep. Also, Humanofort may aid in the recovery/regeneration of my ankle ligaments. I have previously used Humanofort at a 500mg dose. However, I haven't used Mucuna Puriens or 5-HTP.

    I have super busy two weeks before Thanksgiving, but I will be updating my experiences periodically.

    Stay tuned!!

    Let's get it!

  6. Alright, here we go.

    LiGHts Out will be the first supplement that I have used in over four months, besides the usual staples.

    The Lineup:

    ALCAR
    CDP-Choline
    Sulbutiamine
    Magnesium
    Protein

    and...

    LiGHts Out.

    I'm keeping it simple. I'm using the nootropics for studying, and keeping everything else simple.

    First dose: 1 cap.

    I also started at 1,as I always try to use as low of a dose of anything as I can.but I'm positive 2 is what you need,it's just the right effective dose of the l-dopa.

    Yup. One cap last night to assess tolerance. I haven't used 5-HTP or Mucuna (L-Dopa), so I didn't want to double up just yet.

  11. UPDATE:

    I had a great night's sleep last night. I should have prefaced that I do not have problems falling asleep or remaining asleep. With that said, there are days when I do not feel rested after 7 or 8 hours rest. I'm definitely curious to how I respond in the coming month.

    I had a great workout today. Day-by-day, my ankle mobility is increasing (which is obviously pertinent in Olympic lifts).

    I am refraining from any other "anabolic" type supplements during this log. I will take the occasional Slintensity cap to help out with those high carb meals. Other than that, it is LiGHts Out all the way.

    Night #2: 2 Caps

  12. Day 3:

    I woke up today feeling sluggish. I'm not going to attribute this to LiGHts Out. However, I have been sleeping through the night--no restlessness.

    Today was an off day. Although I didn't lift, I got on the field and did some agility drills for the first time since my surgery. I tried to work to a full sprint, but couldn't really drive off the ground.

    Night #3: 2 Caps

  13. Day 4:

    I had a pretty long day today. I'm looking forward to finish off the day with two caps of LiGHts Out.

    Anyway...

    I woke up today feeling refreshed (and not sluggish like the previous morning). I honestly have been falling asleep within minutes of lying down; it has been great. It definitely lead to a great workout this morning of: Snatch from the high block, clean from the high block, overhead squat, and heavy RDL's.

    Night #4: 2 Caps

  14. Day 5 & 6:

    Sorry, I missed a day on the log. I had a lot of things on the plate on Thursday. I slept great on Wednesday night and on Thursday night. I have been feeling pretty good on LiGHts Out thus far. I have been sleeping through the night (only to relieve my bladder on Wednesday night). In the mornings, I feel pretty decent. After the first couple of days, I felt sluggish in the morning. But this morning, I felt great.

    I would really like to try L-Dopa on an empty stomach during the day, possibly pre-workout. I got in on the PES Insider Deal and picked up some DopaDex. So, once my run with LiGHts Out is finished, I may dose DopaDex pre-workout.

    I have a workout tomorrow morning at the local Olympic weightlifting gym. It should be a pretty good one. I will still be limited to what I can do because of my ankle, but it should be a great workout.

    Night #6: 2 Caps

  15. Nice dude. Glad to see you're reacting well, and hope tomorrow's oly lift goes as well as can be!

    Thanks, neddo! Yesterday's workout went great. My ankle held up pretty well. I only worked the snatch and clean (can't jerk yet due to ankle inflexibility). It was great to workout under the watchful eye of some previous world champs.

  17. Day 7:

    On Saturday, I worked out at the local USA Weightlifting gym. It was an awesome time, and a great workout! It was great to workout with some guys who are really getting it done. I worked the snatch and the clean yesterday (I can't jerk yet due to ankle inflexibility). However, I felt great and it was a fun atmosphere to lift.

    LiGHts Out is doing work as well. Like I said in my first introduction post, I do not have a hard time sleeping or remaining asleep. However, I have felt pretty well over the last week upon waking. I have been sticking with the 2 cap dose as it has been working great for me.

    I have a problem of waking up with dark circles under my eyes. I don't have the bags underneath my eyes, but they get dark. Does anybody know of a way to help alleviate this problem?

    Night #7: 2 Caps

  18. I have the bags, despite ample sleep sometimes -- I'm not fully sure why, aside from genetics as my moms side has it as well. dafuk?

    Yeah, tell me about it. I have been sleeping great, but I still wake up with dark circles under my eyes like I punched in the face.

    Nice! Good deal, bolt!

  24. Monday, Day 8:

    Well, I have been on LiGHts Out for a week. I can say that sleep has been great, and the effects that I am feeling can be attributed to it. I'm going to continue to dose 2 caps as it has been spot on for me. I wonder what it would be like to stack Humanabol with LiGHts Out to get a little extra Humanofort. At higher doses, Humanofort is pretty darn good. However, the 100mg is sufficient for sleep.

    I'm swamped this week, so sleep will be crucial (what I get of it). I'm hoping that LiGHts Out can help me feel a little better in the mornings as this weeks wears on. It will really be put to the test this week.

    Night #8: 2 Caps

  25. I woke this morning a little tired, but I think it is due to me staying up til midnight last night.

  26. Glad this is helping you.Good product for someone with sleep issues!

  27. Tuesday, Day 9:

    I woke up a little groggy this morning. However, I am up late (as I am tonight), so I think the change in bedtime and hours of sleep threw me off. My schedule dictates that I only lift three days this week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Since I haven't lifted for those seven weeks when I was non-weight bearing on my ankle, I get to "rebuild" myself. I have been more sore from lifts now that I would have been embarrassed to say I sore when I was healthy. However, I feel that LiGHts Out is providing adequate recovery as well. If funds permit, I would like to rerun LiGHts Out with extra Humanofort to bring it to a total of 500-600mg. It would definitely be expensive, but I think you could recover like no other.

    Night #9: 2 Caps

  28. I work 3 12's a week night shift.. and the inconsistancy in sleeping time really screws you up.. i feel ya man!

    Oh, yeah, definitely! Hopefully you have a couple bottles of this lying around.

  30. Wednesday, Day 10:

    I can't wait for this week to be over. I'm pretty stressed out about the lack of sleep I'm getting. However, the quality of my sleep is pretty darn good. I'll definitely attribute this to LiGHts Out.

    Alright, I have to get off this computer.

    Night #10: 2 Caps
