-Worked up to about 8 caps a day with Free Test and 12 caps once it was gone. Spread out doses but made sure 3 caps were always taken as part of my pre-workout plan.
Adding this to NO Uptake the second month did make a noticeable increase in both. While it wasn't as extreme as the increase of just adding NO Uptake to the month before it, it did give an increase as well. Endurance was highest the last several weeks of the log. High reps seemed like a breeze and I was hardly ever out of breath in the weight room, despite doing increased workloads. Most noticeable was how doing heavy sled pulls didn't leave me gasping for breath even with increases weekly. My conditioning obviously was increasing due to my work in the weight room, but this addition seemed to accelerate that pace.
Just look at the pics. Size was gained the first month or so, but apparent fat loss occurred in the second. Body weight remained stagnant through some of the second month, but the effects in the mirror were obvious and I didn't change too much diet wise as I enjoyed the changes that were occurring. I feel this increased the "hard" feeling of my muscles and gave a denser look that occurred over the second month of my log.
Did note increased stomach irritation at 3 caps per dose with Drive at first. This subsided quickly and even at 12 caps per day I did not notice any issues, so not a very large negative.
-Huge fan of forskolin and icariin so already felt this was an awesome addition. Great for added recomp effect and added endurance on top of the already high endurance from NO Uptake.
Overall for the Complete Stack of Free Test + Drive + NO Uptake:
-Biggest Positives between the combo:
-Gained a solid amount of weight in this time frame. I don't ever look to really add more than 2-3 pounds a month otherwise it usually just ends up being extra fat. My calories were pretty high (up to 3400 on some days) and I didn't notice much body fat gain and defintely some loss of body fat towards the end.
-Muscular endurance and fatigue were greatly reduced throughout the log. I wasn't doing much running or cardio but had plenty of circuit work throughout. Sled pulling was where I saw the greatest improvement (or the best area to measure this with). Usually regardless of weight at a certain number of steps the burn kicks in and beats me up with sleds, but I kept adding weight and distance without much detriment throughout the log. Comparing the difficulty of the high reps work from the first workout to the last was impressive. Much less heavy breathing and peripheral fatigue in the muscles.
-Pumps were on par with ArA during this log. Vascularity was at an all time high and I have noticed a slight drop off after the cessation of use. Also noting a slightly lessened "fullness" currently but I have dropped calories and a pound or two since the log ended. I had veins prominent in the arms and legs pretty much all day long at any time at levels that matched or exceeded the norm even at a lower body fat percentage. Pumps came on strong and fast when taken 45 minutes pre-workout and were painful at points throughout the last two months.
-Overall I think the biggest testament is just how much I enjoyed my workouts every time I got to lift. While the all day fullness wasn't the best I have ever had, the strength increases weren't insane, the overall lack of negative training days is not something I take lightly. Ability to hammer things in the gym and recover adequately over and over was very impressive. Felt this was a solid performance stack as far as increasing numbers in the weight room. I look to implement Drive and NO Uptake in the next couple months when I cut on ABE+EP. So get that into some stores so more people can grab it!
The actual numbers:
-Final total after the 8 weeks of this log: ~3-4lbs gained.
The majority of this gain came by weeks 5-6 with the last several weeks staying constant yet apparently dropping some body fat. I could have bumped up cals to ensure another pound or two by the end but enjoyed the way the workouts were still improving while seeing changes in the mirror so didn't push it.
-Strength was not the easiest to compare as my program isn't linear at the moment so things changed up pretty quickly. I did notice the ability to push more reps or higher weight at each workout for 90% of my workouts. After coming back to some of my max effort attempts this week and last I have hit higher numbers on each so strength levels are above what they were at the beginning of this log (10-15lbs on several big lifts). -Dropped half an inch on my waist and notice less fat in the pinch test. Really been slacking on getting my body fat checked with calipers lately (my usual measurer is MIA and I don't trust most people with this). Pics tell the truth tho.
