Testing...1,2,3: USPlabs "PATENTED ANABOLIC"

Page 6 of 17 First ... 45678 ... Last

  1. Day 12

    I woke up feeling good after getting about 8 hours of sleep with minimal interruption. I’m not sure if PA has had any effect on sleep quality at this point.

    I was looking pretty lean this morning and perhaps a little more than earlier in the week. My weight somewhat backed up what I was seeing in the mirror, as I stepped on the scale at 208lbs (-1.2lbs from yesterday/+1lb from “Day 1”). I’m fairly confident that this is my true “clean” weight and I don’t have any excess water being held at this point.

    One thing I can say for sure is that I’m eating a ridiculous amount of food without any negative impact on my physique. This has been the most mind boggling part of the experience to me at this point in my run. Before I started supplementation, I most likely would’ve gained more than a pound eating this way for 11 straight days. However, the weight wouldn’t be entirely lean, nor would I have seen my appearance tighten up. I’m surprised and very happy with the way in which PA seems to be affecting my body composition. I will probably be increasing my calories further, since my current surplus seems like it’s is being laughed at by PA. I plan on going through some of the other logs in a couple days and am curious to see if anyone else is having a similar experience. As of now, I know one other tester who saw his weight start to come down while eating a good amount.

    I dosed PA shortly after waking up this morning with Alphamine as my caffeine source. I’m not worried about Alphamine skewing my results with such limited use, but I’ll be using Focus XT on off days going forward. I didn’t notice any change from the normal stim effect that I get with Alphamine solo. I felt the rise in body temperature about 30 minutes after dosing, which was a little stronger than what Alphamine normally provides.

    I’m starting to believe that PA is directly increasing vascularity (unrelated to body fat). I’ve reported great vascularity several times, but being pretty vascular already, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. About an hour after this morning’s dose, I noticed the recently found veins in my lower abdomen were more prominent. I also saw 3 "new" veins stretching across my lower abdomen to my upper quad, which weren’t visible prior to dosing (or ever).

    My hunger is currently at its normal level. There’s a possibility that Alphamine could lower it, but that effect shouldn’t last throughout the day. I ate a large breakfast without any difficulty, shortly after my morning PA/Alphamine.

    The mouth dryness hasn’t been an issue today. It didn’t even cross my mind until now.



    My breakfast was about the same size as it’s been all week. Calories should be down today to account for my low activity level. However, I’ll take in more than I was planning after assessing my current weight/body composition.


    Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

    Calories: 2050
    Carbs: 280
    Protein: 76
    Fat: 71

    I’ve since added about 1000 calories to my breakfast total and will have a full breakdown posted by the end of the day.

    I might have to start adding to it. Probably not, but I need to fit some extra calories in somewhere. I could end up close to 7000 at some point this week.

    7k is a lot, but it's not too hard to pull off with the right meal planning/timing. Starting the day with a massive breakfast gets the ball rolling and makes the rest of the day a little easier. When the daily calories start getting backed up it becomes a real challenge...that's when you start hitting the bottle (EVOO) lol.

    Yeah I figured it's close to the same amount. People are usually horrified when they first see the amount of food I consume. Eating 4 sandwiches for lunch
    (and snacks throughout the day) at work gets a few looks lol.

  8. Day 12 continued

    Calories were pretty high considering my only activity was walking up and down stairs to get more food. I’m happy with the way my appearance is shaping up currently, but would like to see if I can push calories further while keeping body fat increases minimal (or nonexistent). Based on the last 11 days, I’m thinking that it's a possibility. I also wanted to note that my overall activity level has picked up a little the last couple weeks (not training related), which has been compensated for with the correct amount of calories for my goals.

  11. Day 13

    Sleep was good. I got about 7 hours and feel fully recovered from a long week.

    My weight shot up 4lbs (probably all muscle ) to 212lbs (+5lbs from ďDay 1Ē). I expect to see it drop down a little after a couple days of work/gym.



    I just finished up a big breakfast and will be heading to the gym shortly.


    Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

    Calories: 2109
    Carbs: 291
    Protein: 75
    Fat: 72


    Iíll be dosing the following pre workout:

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

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max will be used intra workout


    Todayís workout is focused on chest and triceps.

  14. Day 13 continued

    There wasn't any noticeable mood boost from my pre workout dosing today, but the thermo effect was there. I think the combination of me being physically/mentally drained from work and Craze having a "good day", was most responsible for the strong reaction previously. However, the PA/Craze/Protocol combo had me in the zone, which led to an amazing workout.

    Strength and strength endurance, both saw major improvements. I was able to keep piling on the weight (more than I have been) without slowing down much at all. Some lifts saw bigger improvements than others, but the overall progress made was more than expected. I can't recall the last time I saw strength shoot up like this, but I know it had been a while. I'm sure my diet/training had a big part in the results, but compared to recently, this was a definite improvement.


    -some previous #'s in parenthesis

    BB Flat Bench
    275x6 (275x5)
    285x5 (275x5)
    295x3 (285x4)
    300x3 (295x3)
    305x2

    BB Incline Bench
    245x5 (225x6)
    255x4 (235x5)
    265x3 (245x4)
    275x2 (255x3)
    225x8

    -These results were the most surprising to me. Some random guy came over to chat after 275x2. That gave me some extra rest time for the last set of 225x8, but I still didn't expect to have that much strength left in the tank.


    DB Fly
    70x10(60x9) 45 degree bench
    70x7 (65x7) 22.5 degree
    70x6 (70x4) flat
    drop
    45x6 (45x5) flat

    -I don't really pay attention to the weight used with these, but being able to start +10lbs after heavy pressing was a good indication that endurance was up.


    Standing Cable Fly
    25x8 (pull from ground)
    20x10 (ground)
    30x10 (pull from top)
    35x8 (top)

    super sets
    DB Incline Tri Ext. (weight per arm)
    60x10
    70x6
    70x5
    Dips (BW)
    10
    8
    7
    DB Kickbacks
    40x17
    50x12
    55x8

    Chest Press (machine)
    195x10
    210x7
    drop
    135x6
    drop
    75x7

    I'm definitely worn out from today's workout, but still feeling great about my performance. Results like this have me excited to get back in the gym to see if they continue.



    Calories are on target and I'll have today's total and breakdown posted tonight.

  17. Day 13 continued

    I continued to bring the calorie total up (relative to activity level) and finished the day with what should be a good surplus.

    I had a little help getting some quick calories from a “cheat snack” tonight.

    I’d been hearing a lot about this stuff and happened to see it on sale today for $3. I used that as an excuse to give it a try and it was amazing. Calories still ended up around where I was shooting for, so I’m not concerned about eating it whatsoever.


    Today’s calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 6017
    Carbs: 626
    Protein: 360
    Fat: 233
    (41/24/35)

    My daily calories will most likely reach a new high, with the start of the workweek tomorrow.


    I’ve taken care of everything that I needed to for the day, so it looks like I’ll be getting a decent amount of sleep and starting the week off right.

  18. Day 14

    Iím feeling good this morning after getting about 6 hours of sleep last night. Iím not sure, but I may have slept through the night without interruption.

    I weighed in at 214.2lbs this morning (+7.2lbs from ďDay 1Ē). It looks like the weekend has he holding quite a bit of ďextraĒ weight, that I should see come off over the next few days. Despite the added weight, I don't appear to be very bloated at all.

    Breakfast remained consistent, but was a battle to finish. I think I need to switch up my food choices because Iím starting to get tired of my current morning meal.


    Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

    Calories: 2176
    Carbs: 300
    Protein: 76
    Fat: 71

  24. Day 14 continued

    I made it through work with more energy than usual, but the physicality of my day wasnít as high as itís been.

    Shortly after eating lunch, I experienced what felt like a significant rise in body temperature. The feeling lasted about 30 mins. I donít know if PA had anything to do with it, but itís not a normal occurrence, so Iím mentioning it.

    Hunger has been about normal (maybe slightly elevated) and the mouth dryness looks to have gone away completely.

    I have a minimal amount of soreness in my chest and triceps. I donít always experience DOMS, but I think weight increases with pressing and the DB incline tri extensions are the cause of it.


    I just finished my pre workout meal and am getting ready to head to the gym.


    The following will be dosed pre workout:

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

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max will be used intra workout


    Not a very exciting workout planned for today. Iíll be working biceps, forearms, calves, and abs.

    Could it be from overtraining at all? I get that from time to time.

    I'm feeling great and have felt fine all day. If you're referring to the rise in body temperature, it wasn't really an unpleasant feeling, it's just something I noticed shortly after I had my lunch. It was probably something I ate lol.

  27. Day 14 continued

    I felt the usual thermo effect as I arrived at the gym.

    My workout went great for what it was. I made some progress with all repeat exercises from last week, but find it hard to get that excited about bicep lift progress. Either way, strength was up and I felt great throughout my workout. Iím looking forward to seeing if progress continues with some bigger lifts tomorrow.


    -some previous #ís in parenthesis

    Chins
    BWx21 (BWx19)
    BW+70x5 (BW+70x5)
    BW+70x5 (BW+70x5)
    BW+70x5 (BW+70x5)

    BWx11 (BWx9)

    -Iím always happy to see any improvement with chins/pull ups. I believe BWx21 matched my previous best with these.

    70 x failure
    BB Curl (wide grip)
    70x10
    70x8

    -The super sets had my forearms feeling like they could pop.


    I noticed strong vascularity shortly after starting my workout. It wasnít much different than usual, but the veins on the top of my forearms were more prominent again.



    My daily activity wasnít as high as expected, so I adjusted my calories accordingly. I probably could have gone a little higher, but I still believe I ended up with a decent surplus.

    Todayís calorie total and breakdown were as follows:

    Calories: 6049
    Carbs: 650
    Protein: 451
    Fat: 194
    (42/30/28)

  28. Day 15

    I got between 5-6 hoursí sleep, which is about average for me during the workweek. I was a little sluggish after waking up, but feel pretty good now that Iím moving.

    My weight has started to come down after getting back to work. I weighed in at 211lbs (+4lbs from ďDay 1Ē). Hopefully I donít have much more water left to shed and will hold on to the majority of the weight.

    Breakfast calories were down somewhat and will be made up for throughout the day. I need a complete breakfast overhaul ASAP, as I didnít enjoy a single bite of anything I ate this morning. Just thinking about it gives me a bad feeling.


    Breakfast calorie total and breakdown:

    Calories: 1758
    Carbs: 234
    Protein: 69
    Fat: 59


    I plan on getting a workout in after work. My gym has limited hours the rest of the week, so I want to make sure I donít miss out today.

    That's a good idea. I just need something that I can make quick. I might take your suggestions and add some eggs. I'll try and get to the store tonight if I have time.
