Versa-1 'Patent Pending Anabolic' Final Reactions
- Training changes/Performance
As far as training changes go, the only changes made were the weights. They kept getting heavier and heavier. Versa-1 allowed me to improve my strength over the course of 30 doses in ways that I know wouldn't have been possible without supplementation. This definitely has a strong ergogenic ability to enhance the performance in the gym, especially stacked with Jack3d or Jack3d Micro.
Entering the alpha test of Versa-1, I topped the scales at 188 lbs. My run started off with my weight quickly jumping up about 8 lbs in about 2 weeks. I got sick the week of Thanksgiving and actually put supplementation on hold for a few days while my body was down. I was cal deficient and had no real desire to eat during that period of being ill. After about 5 days of being down, I returned to the gym and weighed in at 192. During the final 2 weeks of supplementation, I finished my run at 197 lbs.
My bodyfat changes were minimal, which is great considering I'm up 9 pounds in just 30 days. For a natty compound that is incredible. You would think these are newbie gains to be putting on weight this fast! Nope! I don't feel as if I got a whole lot leaner, which is fine because i'm running maintenance cals right now. But my girl did tell me she noticed my abs more. So in this area, I would say honestly that my body fat remained about the same while stacking on 8 to 9 lbs of muscle.
My strength has improved in all areas. This was something that was prevalent after about 10 days of supplementation. I've set multiple personal records on this and I'm very pleased with Versa-1's ability to enhance my performance in the gym.
I've noticed that the during the last week or so of training I was really able to dial in on the muscle/mind connection. Focus was definitely enhanced while stacking Jack3d or Jack3d Micro with Versa-1. I'm not sure which pre-workout I prefer, as far as which had the better muscle/mind connection. They were both really solid. This is a nice additional feature to this product.
Pumps were nice inside the gym. I think most of that was attributed towards the Pre's in Jack3d Micro and Jack3d. Vascularity for me was hit and miss. I think my bodyfat is up slightly from this summer and thats why my vascularity isn't as prominent. I do recall on one leg day that I was extremely vascular in my forearms after doing a set of leg presses. It was kinda freaky considering I didn't do any type of arm workout to cause such. So I could see how if my bf% was lower, that Versa-1 would lend me some nice vascularity.... especially if it can cause that on a leg day!
This perhaps was one of my favorite qualities of Versa-1. My muscle bellies feel nice and dense. There is definitely that full feeling in and out of the gym. Like I keep on saying... when I flex, it really feels like there is boulders under my skin. The hardness when I flex is awesome.
In the third week, I really felt some painful soreness all over. It got to where I was foam rolling 15mins prior and 15mins post workout. I'm not exactly sure what this stims from. It could be an underlying effect from Versa-1 or perhaps its just a by-product of Versa-1's ability to help me push harder and heavier weights. Needless to say, the second to last week of supplementation with it was a very painful week. In the last week however, I noticed that the pains were diminishing.
Size was definitely increasing during supplementation. My v-tape is getting much broader, my arm circumference grew about 3/4th of an inch and jeans are feeling tighter in the thighs.
My energy appeared to be solid all throughout the day. I felt great in the gym and then after the gym I had plenty of energy for the rest of the day.
Sleep quality seemed to be unchanged. There were several days during this run where I would wake up and just could not drag myself out of bed. Even if I got 8 hours of sleep, I still felt like I needed more. So I don't really feel like it was the quality of sleep that changed, but the waking up part did. Perhaps I was waking up in REM sleep cycles those days, so if that was the case I was sleeping even better?
I had a few jittery feelings in my first few trials with Versa-1, as it seems to potentiate the efficiency of the Pre-Workout you mix it with. I dialed in my timing of things and it was smooth sailing to gains-city after that. My mood was always craving to hit the gym. I was like an addict just constantly thinking about the next days session wondering what kind of weight I will hit and what kind of PR's I could break. I haven't had an urge to go back to the gym before for a second training session like I have on Versa-1. My mood was normally positive, I did have some slight increase in agression. Nothing uncontrollable though.
So for my overall experience with this first run with Versa-1 in the books, I am thoroughly impressed. It's crazy how you can take 1 pill a day and it enhances your quality in and out of the gym in such a short period of time. USPlabs truly has a remarkable compound on their hands. It's no wonder they are getting a patent for it. With the gains that I worked for, and got I would highly recommend Versa-1. putting on a solid 8 to 9 pounds in a such a short period of time is incredible for a natty supplement. I dare to say its pretty much unheard of in that short period of a time . I can't wait for it to hit store shelves. This will be one I recommend for sure. January 8th 2013 is looking to be a great day!
Thank You Jacob, Casey, Nik O, Hello Hurricane and all the other USPlabs Staff for allowing me to test this product out for free. You guys really are the most generous company out there in the supplement industry. I appreciate all that you guys have done to help me achieve my goals this year. It's been a hell of a year making great progress, and Versa-1 is the icing on the cake to end the year.
This is the GAME CHANGER we have all been looking for. Whether you are on a cut or a bulk. Ladies and Gents... Versa-1 is going to steal the show in 2013.
