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

Page 1 of 17 123 ... Last

  1. I want to start by thanking Jacob and the entire USPlabs team for the opportunity to test the new "Patented Anabolic". I'm looking forward to my run and will do my best to provide a detailed analysis of the entire process. I'm pretty in tune with my body, and any changes/effects from supplementation (large or small) are usually picked up on quickly. That being said, I won't be changing my current diet, training, rest, etc. to help limit any variables, while testing the product. It could be arriving as soon as tomorrow and I'll begin supplementation when it does.



    Below is some background info on myself and what I'm hoping to achieve with my "Patented Anabolic" run:


    Nutrition

    -I have a fairly well balanced diet that usually breaks down around 40/30/30 (C/P/F) by the end of the day.

    -I usually eat every couple hours (when I'm awake).

    -I'll start by eating above caloric maintenance (~4500 calories). My intake will be anywhere from 4700-6000+ calories per day, depending on my activity level. I require a large amount of food to maintain my weight...so I eat a lot. I have no trouble adding (or dropping) weight despite this. Digestive enzymes will be taken with all meals to aid in absorption.

    -Caloric intake is subject to change based on the effects of supplementation.

    -I basically consume the same foods every day, but the amount I eat allows for some variety. Some of my typical food sources are the following:


    • chicken
    • turkey
    • tuna
    • cottage cheese
    • Greek yogurt
    • EVOO
    • vegetables (a ton of them): broccoli, greens (variety), carrots, green beans, potatoes, corn, squash, etc.
    • oats
    • cereal: the last couple months I've been growing tired of oats and replacing them with cereal (mostly kids)
    • Ezekiel bread/Ezekiel English muffins
    • almond milk
    • protein bars: Quest/VPX Zero Impact


    -I'm not afraid to eat "dirty" within my calorie goal, but keep the majority of foods "clean".




    Training

    -I've been training for the better part of the last 15 years. I'm not following a specific program currently and haven't been for the last 6 months. I've actually been wanting to start one, but will hold off to keep training consistent, pre and during testing.

    -I keep my compound lifts heavy (usually 3-6 reps) and assistance work, moderate to heavy (4-8). I'll occasionally venture into the 10-12 rep range with certain exercises.

    -No Cardio

    - I've been making consistent progress with both size and strength.

    -My routine will continue to be set up as follows:

    • Mon: biceps/forearms/calves/abs or OFF
    • Tue: shoulders/traps
    • Wed: back
    • Thu: arms/(light)chest or OFF
    • Fri: legs
    • Sat: OFF
    • Sun: chest/tris







    Supplementation

    -I'm going to keep things basic (for me at least) and not add anything that I don't consider a staple.

    -I'll be using the following supplements:

    • Patented Anabolic
    • multivitamin: Orange Triad or Athletic Multi
    • Orange OxiMega Fish oil
    • Vitamin D: 5000iu
    • Vitamin C: 500mg with a couple meals
    • digestive enzymes
    • ALCAR
    • protein: variety of brands/sources
    • pre workout("urged" to use for testing): I have quite a few that I use before hitting the gym. Craze and Protocol will be the most consistent combination. I'll document anything used at the time.
    • BCAA: I-BCAA MAX, Recover Pro
    • Super Cissus
    • GlycoMyx


    -I will update the list if anything was forgotten or changes.




    Goals

    -Gain lean mass and strength. I will be trying to bulk up a bit, while staying fairly lean. I'd ideally like to gain 3-4lbs with minimal (or no) fat added. My goals could change slightly depending on the effects of the product.




    Current Stats

    Height: 5'11''
    Weight: 209lbs
    Body Fat %: ?


    -Pictures were taken first thing this morning, right after weighing in:

    I'm hoping to get things started tomorrow. If the product arrives while I'm at work, I plan on dosing it before heading to the gym. I have no idea what to expect, but diet and training will be on point per usual. I'll be doing my best to provide both in-depth and honest feedback.

    Lift the fcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  13. Quick Update

    I was about to head to the gym and UPS showed up with the product. However, I'm still waiting on an email that needs reply before starting. It looks like other testers got the email, so hopefully I'll have it tonight,and get things started tomorrow.

    Along with the product, USPlabs generously sent a Jack3d Micro t-shirt, 3 in 1 shaker, and a few samples. I'm happy to finally have a USP t-shirt that fits well. I have 2 XL black ones that are borderline too tight. I love the shakers as well and already use one daily (I now have 3).

    PM shipping info and I'll have it out by the end of the week.

    This one's red and seems like a larger XL than the black. It's made by the same company though, so it might end up like the others.

    That's hard to turn down. If Jim passes up the offer (he asked first), its yours.

  18. Day 1

    Things aren't off to the best start. I only managed 3-4 hours of sleep and I'm not feeling that great because of it. It's days like today, I wish i was a coffee drinker. I'll probably pick up some Focus XT this week for a morning boost.

    I weighed in at 207lbs (-2lbs overall) this morning. My weight can fluctuate a good amount throughout the week, but this is the lowest I've seen it in a while.

    I had a big breakfast consisting of Ezekiel English muffins w/light cream cheese, turkey bacon, chicken sausage, broccoli and spinach pancakes, a giant bowl of assorted cereal (4.5 cups), and almond milk. The food was a total of 1439 calories (203g carbs/58g protein/47g fat). I'll provide a more detailed summary of my food intake at the end of the day, when I have more time.

    A multivitamin, vitamin D, fish oil, digestive enzymes, and Super Cissus were taken before/with my meal.

    I have what should be a long day of physical work to get through before hopefully heading to the gym.

  19. Day 1 continued

    Work was pretty rough. It was one of the more physically demanding days I've had in a long time and I basically got a 10 hour full body workout. I'm actually not feeling too bad, considering my lack of sleep and long day.

    The only supplements taken at work were a cap of vitamin C and some digestive enzymes with lunch. All food intake will be updated this evening.

    I just finished up a pre workout meal and am getting ready to hit the gym. This will be workout #1 with the "Patented Anabolic".

    The following supplements will be taken before heading to the gym:

    1 cap Patented Anabolic
    2.5 scoops Protocol
    2 scoops Craze
    2g ALCAR

    1 scoop I-BCAA Max will be taken intra workout

    Today's workout is focused on shoulders and traps.

    I can't say that I noticed much from my first dose of the Patented Anabolic (didn't expect to either). However, vascularity on the top of my forearms was more prominent than usual. I'm not going to attribute this to PA at this point, but I'll be looking to see if it continues.




    I just spent the last hour trying to find a decent way to post all of today's info from myfitnesspal. I ran out of time for tonight and will try to have it available tomorrow.

  23. Day 2

    Sleep was lacking again, but I feel pretty good regardless. It’s looking like I might have a short workday, so I’ll be able to get to the gym early and take care of a few things, before catching up on some sleep.

    My weight was back up to 209lbs. This is right back where I started a couple days ago.

    I upped the calories consumed for breakfast this morning. After a day full of activity, I found myself scrambling to hit my target last night and wanted to get off to a good start.

    Breakfast: 1 Ezekiel English muffin, 2 spinach pancakes, 4 organic chicken sausages (breakfast), 4 strips uncured turkey bacon, 6 cups assorted cereal, 2 cups unsweetened almond milk, light cream cheese, 1 Greek yogurt.

    Carbs: 263
    Protein: 81
    Fat: 48

    A multivitamin, vitamin D, Super Cissus, and digestive enzymes were taken before/with my meal.

    Thanks man. I guess I am lucky. It can be hard to find enough time in the day to fit all the food in though. Even if I was on a cut, I could easily fit this meal in, due to needing a massive amount of calories to maintain weight.
