  2. Final Review:

    I want to thank all the guys at Antaeus Labs for giving me this logging opportunity. This is my first AL product run and I was very impressed. Thanks again.

    I must say that overall I am very impressed with Achilles. Impressed enough to order a second bottle. Of probably the 15 different joint products I have tried, I have only reordered 3 of those products so that should say something. In fact, I was previously on a joint regimen that consisted of Animal Flex, SNS Cissus, and Joint Force. During the run, I dropped the flex and Cissus and did not skip a beat. In the past I could tell if I just missed one day of those products so I know that Achilles was pulling its weight.

    In just four weeks I was able to notice a fast acting, mild anti inflammatory effect, joints felt smoother and more lubed in the mornings even after nights out drinking, increased joint mobility, reduced pain/inflammation/popping in knees, elbows, etc. and reduced warm up time. My previously injured shoulder has continued to improve and make strides with reduced pain. My newly injured shoulder that occurred while on Achilles showed remarkable improvement at a rapid pace. Even my doctor was impressed at my progress. Not too shabby for a joint product in only 4 weeks considering most take much longer to notice any difference from.

    Overall, Achilles has joined Joint Force as my favorite joint products. I will continue to run it and possibly stack it with additional cissus after I log this next bottle. I would reccomend to anyone recovering from an injury, experiencing joint pain, or simply taking a preemptive measure for their joints.

    Final Score: 9/10

  3. Nice review CATD!

  4. nice assessment.

  5. Took a few days off with job hunting stuff. Taking off early to hit some arms and light chest/shoulder work so we will see how everything is holding up.

  6. Thank you very much for the honest review. It was a pleasure to follow along and I'm glad Achilles treated you well.

  7. Hope everyone has a great Christmas/New Years. Im not dead just been away slammed with stuff going on. I am about halfway through my second bottle of Achilles. Some interesting things have occurred. Recently, I have been fighting some knee and elbow pain. Im assuming being dehydrated quite often from holiday drinking, heavy squats for 8 weeks straight with a narrower stance, and heavy tricep extensions without my elbows being lubed and warmed up from pressing before are the culprits. I took a week off and it seems to have helped a great deal.

    Also, Shoulders and other joints are remarkably better and I have gotten to the point where I do not feel my shoulders at all when doing heavy back.

    Another interesting thing I might point out: I feel like since I have started Achilles my skin as been much much clearer. Anybody else experience this?

  15. Some more Updates:

    Shoulders continue to make big strides. I was able to do bench and pull ups for the first time in months. Elbow pain has subsided. Knees are still off but hopefully getting better. Skin continues to remain clearer than normal

  16. awesome updates to hear (yet again)
    so you are ~ thru 2 bottles now?
    that's what i ran, second bottle was smooth sailing, just like the first
    i'm off now, and problem-free!

    Glad to hear it man. Yes I am almost done with my second bottle. Going to do a 3rd with some additional cissus to see if I can knock this thing out. Came up out of nowhere. I swear sometimes that if its not one thing, it's the other.

    Good news is I went a bit heavier on bench with just a little tightness and soreness but no pain. Elbows were great as well and they were giving me some fits

  18. Ok guys another update with some good news. I benched this week for the first time in months and had zero shoulder pain. I didn't go near as heavy as I would want just to be safe but I managed to knock out 185x20 so I was pleased under the circumstances. Also, I did pull ups for this first time with zero shoulder pain as well. They are showing remarkable improvement.

    Knees are showing some improvement as well. They were irritating me on squats so I stopped to let them heal some more. They still weren't as sore though and I did heavy leg presses with no problem. They Also feel even better today so that's good.

    I deadlifted for the first time since messing up my shoulder and smoked 500 no problem so happy with that and the lack of pain as well. 2nd bottle is done so time to order a 3rd!

  25. Ok, finished my second bottle a few days ago waiting on the 3rd to get here. Knee pains have greatly subsided and Elbow pain is almost nonexistant so I have seen great improvements there. Shoulders continue to improving despite stressing them more. Overall, after 2 bottles of Achilles, I would say I have had ups (shoulders are remarkably better) and downs (elbows/knees but both have been a long time coming) but I am definitely much better off than when I started. That is why I purchased a 3rd bottle haha.

    I will continue to keep this log up as I feel the product deserves it and for all interested

    Once my current joint supps run out I'm going to have to give it a try based on your review. Glad to hear your still getting better.

  27. yup continued good stuff in here
    these lingering issues can be draining and aggravating..
    sometimes, the best thing to do is simply lay down the weights for awhile
    (admittedly, not many of us care to make that an option lol)
    so your continued improvement while still beating yourself up over this time, does indeed speak volumes for the product
    anyway, here's hoping that bottle #3 knocks remaining issues into nothing more than a memory

    Strong this. Even going more volume and lower weight seems to help me a lot. I need to get back on the Achilles-train because my joints have gone back to feeling like an old man.

  29. Exactly I have been thinking about it and I'm going to take it easy until I get my new iforce product to log. Going to get deep tissue and chiropractic work maybe even try some acupuncture. Oh and some more Achilles

    Haha deep tissue is borderline torture. I know many grown men who have exited it with tears in eyes. Never tried acupuncture but I hear great things and my doctor is hopefully hooking me up with a free visit.

  33. Deep tissue IS torture!! You don't do it to relax that's for sure. The next day you feel wrecked but then things start to turn around. Acupuncture is one I haven't sacked up to try yet.

    i've done both and I have to say that acupuncture done right is unbelievable!!! I't amazing how fast an injury will heal from it, I would definitly try it if you can.

    You would LOL!! but man it feels good! The pins are placed in the area's and there is an electric sensation you feel, then they place heat lamps over it and warm the area!! It's the only thing thats helped a bulged disk in my neck and the muscel spams/numbness it caused. I tell you it feels unreal, and when your done the whole body is in a great relaxed state!

  37. Haha I would look like a pin cushion if I were healthy! Need to hit the sauce.

    Glad to hear y'all had good experiences with acupuncture I am excited to try it

  38. Just an update for everyone:

    Still have not gotten my new bottle of Achilles. I had it shipped to my brothers PO box by accident and can't get it until he gets back in town. Its been just over a week without it and I definitely feel a difference. Joints felt much better on it and I can't wait to get my new bottle.
