    Moving some big weight, 405x15 is nooooo joke. A full day of rest should almost be mandatory after an intense squat session like that
    The nauseated feeling sucks but at least you know you killed it..

    Yeah that's usually a good sign that you put in a decent amount of effort.

    I've started to black out and had to sit down/hold on to something when doing squats, but luckily never hit the floor.

  5. I've been keeping track of my experience on a weekly basis, broken down into the categories listed below.



    'Patent Pending Anabolic' Week #3 Reactions (up to "Day 21")


    oTraining changes/Performance: My approach to training has remained consistent; however, my performance has seen significant improvements in both strength and endurance. Strength endurance has been very impressive. My ability to maintain strength throughout a workout has increased quite noticeably.


    oBodyweight changes: I'm continuing to add weight at a steady pace of ~1lb a week. I finished week 3, up about 3lbs total.


    oBodyfat changes: My body fat has had no visible increase and my appearance is looking fairly tight.


    oStrength: Strength has been climbing at an accelerated pace. It has become the norm to see 5-10lb increases between sessions on all of my major lifts. Strength endurance has also seen improvement, as previously mentioned.


    oFocus/Euphoria: Focus is high during training sessions. I can't say for sure that this is directly related to PA. The results I'm having certainly have me locked into each workout though.


    oPumps/Vascularity: Pumps and vascularity are both strong. Vascularity has seen some significant changes, both in and out of the gym. Veins have become visible in new areas and others continue to gain prominence.


    oMuscle Fullness: Muscle fullness has been improving with each week.


    oRecovery: Recovery has been great. I'm not fatigued from previous sessions and work (physical) has been taking less of a toll on my body.


    oSize: I believe my overall size has increased somewhat, particularly my shoulders, chest, and legs.


    oEnergy: My daily energy has notably improved. This is most apparent while working a physical job. The same tasks that had me ready to drop by the end of the day are now completed with energy intact. I think this ties into the noted increase in endurance as well.


    oSleep Quality: I seem to be getting through the day easier, with less than optimal sleep time. This could perhaps indicate an improvement in the "quality" of what sleep I am getting.


    oFeelings/Mood: I have been feeling great on a daily basis. I'm unsure if this is a direct result of PA. I believe the extra daily energy and results I'm consistently seeing in the gym could have a big part in how I'm feeling as well. My confidence in the gym is currently at a very high level.


    oOther: The thermo effect is still noticed when dosing PA. The level of this effect has varied. Hunger is still increased sporadically.

  6. Day 26

    I got more sleep than I have in quite some time. I woke up around 8am, shut my eyes for what I thought would be a few minutes, and the next thing I knew it was 11am. I don’t think I’ve stayed in bed that late in the day since college.

    I immediately had a cap of Patented Anabolic with a scoop of Focus XT to get my day started. I didn’t notice much in terms of a rise in body temperature. This effect continues to be felt at varying degrees.

    I was a little achy this morning when getting out of bed. It’s not very uncommon after a week of work/gym, but it’s something I’ll be keeping an eye on. Those that know me are very familiar with my joint issues, and my resulting love for cissus. It’s the one supplement I wouldn’t (or couldn’t) go without. I’ll be bumping my Super Cissus dosing up to 5 caps a day (from 4).

    DOMS is starting to be felt in my legs. The level of soreness isn't anything unusual at this point.

    My weight is holding steady at 210lbs (+3lbs from “Day 1”). After completing the workweek and seeing no further decline, I’m confident that today’s weigh-in reflects my “clean weight” (no extra water). All of the 3lbs appear to lean, as there is no sign of increased body fat.



    I stepped up my breakfast game this morning and had an amazing meal. It was a good amount of food, but I finished it all without ever slowing down.

    The delicious type. They're "gluten free" blueberry waffles from Trader Joe's. It's the first time I've tried them and they were pretty tasty. They have banana ones too, that I plan on trying soon. I actually hadn't had waffles in years.

  11. Day 26 continued

    I had a very successful rest day and my activity was limited to basically walking up and down stairs. This became increasingly challenging as the day went on, as DOMS is now pretty strong throughout my legs. I can’t really judge if the level of soreness has anything to do with PA because the way I hit my legs during last night’s workout was something they weren’t accustomed to.



    My day of eating is complete and my caloric intake was pretty high for having very limited activity.


    Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 4978
    Carbs: 441
    Protein: 425
    Fat: 185
    (34/33/33)



    I’ll be back in the gym tomorrow, looking to continue my progress. I plan on making it a morning workout, so I can spend the rest of the day watching football.

  12. Glad you got to rest up bro! This soreness is really interesting across the logs. Hoping it proves to be a good side in the end but it's hard to tell until we see the final results I guess. I missed it but is this log going to be a two month run or just the month? I'd be extremely interested in an extended run with the product. Especially with this being a beta run and most natty products show the blunt of there effects in the tail end of the first month and into the second month for me.

    Good updates man. Good luck with the morning workout my brother. :-)

    Thanks man. I'm still not entirely convinced that the recent soreness is a "direct" result of the product, but should have a better idea after a couple more workouts. Either way, I don't see it as a bad thing, considering my strength is recovering great between/during workouts and the soreness hasn't lasted an unusual amount of time.

    There's a possibility of an extended run, but I'm not sure at this point. I won another bottle, which I would glady jump right into, depending on when it arrives. I agree that in 4 weeks it can be tough to fully gauge what a product can do. I'm already very impressed with PA, but some of the effects have really started to pick up as of late and another month with everything going full force would be interesting.

    I'm glad you're following as well and appreciate the support man. This experience has been a lot of fun so far and the versatility of the product definitely provides plenty to discuss.

  16. Day 27

    I got a good night’s sleep and work up feeling refreshed. I was expecting my legs to be in rough shape based on how they were feeling when I went to sleep, but was happy to feel the soreness had lessened quite a bit. At this point in the day, there isn’t much soreness left in them at all. My joints also saw improvement, as there weren’t any aches when I woke up and they held up great during today’s workout.

    My weight made its usual increase after yesterday’s lack of activity and I weighed in at 212.8lbs (+5.8lbs from “Day 1”). I could tell I was holding a little water, but was still looking pretty lean with no visible increase in body fat beyond where I started. My calipers actually indicate that my stomach fat is still down a minimal amount from “Day1”.


    I was somewhat pressed for time this morning, but managed to fit in a good breakfast before heading to the gym.

    The calorie total of my meal matched yesterday’s breakfast exactly…I thought that was interesting lol.

    Calories: 1680
    Carbs: 193
    Protein: 62
    Fat: 79



    I went to the gym shortly after my meal.


    The following was taken pre workout:

    1 cap Patented Anabolic
    100mg caffeine
    2 scoops Craze
    2g ALCAR
    2.5 scoops Protocol

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max was used intra workout


    My workout was a little earlier than I would have liked and I didn’t start out quite as focused as I’ve been recently. However, I continued to make improvements and gained focus not long after I began lifting. My endurance was great and I felt like I could have kept lifting for a while. I finally made myself leave, so I wouldn’t miss much football. I know I could have an “off day” in the gym eventually (it happens), but at this point, I’m thoroughly enjoying the consistent progress.

    Haha yeah, that's the best way I could describe it.

    Thanks man. I'm definitely dedicated to my training and the progress only adds to it.

    I should have a review up sometime this week. Hopefully I can get some pictures taken around the time my weight starts to bottom out. I should lose the majority of any water I'm holding by Wednesday ("Day 30"). I'm not sure at this point, but maybe it will only be mid run review. When I get my second bottle, I'll have a hard time putting it aside.

    It was just a small dent in my daily calories too haha. I'm glad I started adding more variety to my breakfast. I had never really been a breakfast guy, but that's starting to change.

  25. Day 27 continued

    It looks as though vascularity is still improving. When I got out of the shower tonight, I noticed that the visible veins in my lower abdomen/upper thigh area are growing in number and prominence. A couple of the veins that have shown up since starting my run were really starting to pop. This was shortly after I ate and I’m wondering if that helped bring them out.



    I finished the day with my calories reaching their target.


    Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 5077
    Carbs: 497
    Protein: 386
    Fat: 180
    (39/30/31)

  26. Day 28

    I slept for about 5-6 hours and didn’t want to get up for work whatsoever. I ended up hitting the snooze button a couple times before finally starting my day. Despite, the hard time getting out bed, I actually have more energy than I normally do on workday mornings.

    Any soreness from yesterday’s workout was very minimal when I woke up. I’ll see if that holds up as the day goes on.

    My weight was 212.6lbs (+5.6lbs from “Day1”), which is about the same as yesterday. It should start it’s decline with the start of the workweek.



    I didn’t have much time for breakfast after sleeping a few extra minutes. Cooking was kept to a minimum and I had waffles, cereal, and a shake (whey, Greek yogurt, GlycoMyx, and almond milk). Carbs were a little higher than they’ve been, but I’m not too concerned about it.


    Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

    Calories: 1725
    Carbs: 245
    Protein: 69
    Fat: 56

  27. Day 28 continued

    Getting through work was a breeze. I had great energy and endurance that lasted throughout the day. I love that some of the same effects that are improving my gym performance are carrying over to work as well. It has really made life easier and more enjoyable the last few weeks.

    I’m not experiencing much DOMS at all, as a result of yesterday’s workout. My chest has a slight tightness and is feeling very dense. I’m actually a little surprised by how solid it feels today.



    I’ll be heading to the gym after dosing the following:

    1 cap Patented Anabolic
    100mg caffeine
    2 scoops Craze
    2g ALCAR
    2.5 scoops Protocol

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max will be used intra workout


    Today’s workout will be a mix of biceps, forearms, calves, and abs.

  28. Day 28 continued

    The gym went well and strength was up. It’s not the most exciting workout of the week, but I kept progress moving forward at a solid pace regardless. The thermo effect was strong tonight and I was sweating right from the start of my routine. I ate a little less pre workout than I have been and that may have increased the effect.

    Pump and vascularity were both strong the majority of the workout. The super sets made both shine and had my arms looking freakish.




    I wanted to show an example of some of my new found vascularity. This is part of what I’m seeing around my lower abdomen and thighs. Both of these veins had never been seen prior to starting PA and are now showing more each day. The large vein on my hand isn't normally visible as well.

    I agree. This one just isn't as satisfying with no major lifts involved.

    Thanks hulk. I couldn't imagine things going much better than they have. It's been a great run.
