    First off i would like to say thank you to Justin and NLA performance for the opportunity to run and log T-blast,Recover-d,and Swoll-n.I enjoyed all of them,and they without a doubt helped me hold gains from my previous cycle i just finished.I have had a very successful pct to this point and NLA was a big part of this.Thanks again.

    T-blast:
    So I used one full bottle of T-blast and dosed it at 6 caps a day.I will try to keep this simple as i have no proof of it raising my test levels,but i feel it did and i will share with you why.

    Effectiveness:
    It was at around day 12 of dosing this i felt it start working,almost as someone flipped the switch.I started having some acne breakouts.Libido was starting to climb back up.I even started to get a pretty good alpha feeling in the gym and a bit out of it.I had some very good workouts while using T-blast,some of which were close to what i was working with while on cycle.So i do feel it helped increase my strentgh as i have kept more than i had expected to.I did expect all of the results i got from this,as ive used daa many times before,but i did not expect them to feel so strong as I was in pct the whole time i used this.I would have loved to used this solo or for a natty run,but feel it worked great as part of my pct.One other thing i wanted to note is in the past i have almost always gotten head aches while using daa,all forms and many different brands.I did not have the headaches while using this i had expected i would from the daa and that was a relief to say the least.

    Negatives/side effects:
    If taken while on empty stomach for me it made me quite nauseous,but i have experienced this with daa in the past as well.I did have a good increase in acne,which is not a con for me just sharing.6 pills a day can be annoying,but it could be worse.

    Value:
    This is where the product takes a plunge for me,as much as i loved the product i do not know if i could personally pay the $49.99 price tag that it has.Although i do see NLA having a lot of good sales all the time.It is a great product no doubt,but i will have a hard time spending this much when there are other great daa products for easily half the price or less.

    Dosing/taste:
    I dosed 6 caps a day.I found that taking 3 about an hour pre workout gave me a nice little boost in the gym.I just dosed the other 3 at some point in the afternoon with food.As far as taste,no flavor obviously,but i also did not have any nasty burps or burning after taking like with some products.

    Overall:
    I really enjoyed this product overall,it did stand up to some of the my favorite forms and brands of daa ive used in the past.I do feel it gave me increased test without a doubt and it was nice to be able to notice that even while in pct,i also feel i could have seen more and better results if i had used it longer,2 bottles would be a good run.I would recommend it to someone if they havent tried it as im sure you will enjoy it.I would however like to see a better price on this,but that is my only complaint.Once again,thank you NLA Performance for this opportunity and keep heading in the right direction.

    Squats-ass to heel,pause for 2 count at bottom
    225x20 warmup,no pause
    255x15
    275x12
    325x9
    255x12

    Calf raises on block:
    225x20 for 4 sets.

    Bent db rows:
    100x10 for 4 sets.

    Leg extensions:
    255x20 for 4 sets.

    One arm db rows:
    110x8 for 4 sets.

    Lunges:
    80x10 for 3 sets.
    I do a lot of pausing during my leg workouts to emphasize a good muscular stretch, to eliminate all momentum and energy from the way down, and to work out my explosiveness on the way up. Something you should try are low box squats. What I do is a i get a box or bench that is like 2.5 ft of the ground. When I go down to my squat I literally sit down on the bench (of course keep my chest up and back straight), rock back on the bench, take all the weight of my feet, then rock back into the forward motion and explode up off the bench.

    Ok,so once more i want to say thank you to Justin and NLA Performance for the opportunity to use some of theyre products.So here we go with my thoughts on Swoll-n.

    Swoll-n:
    I used 1 full bottle of Swoll-n and dosed it 3 caps a day as suggested.

    Effectiveness:
    This product had some mixed results for me.It did produce some amazing pumps,but not always and not how ive experienced before.For instance,on arms day(biceps and forearms) pumps were so intense that i can honestly say they hurt at points.I caught my self more than once having to take extra time between sets for the pump to calm down.On shoulders/traps day,again amazing pumps to the point that they almost hurt sometimes.Delts would look swolen,and traps were standing tall and thick,a trap pump is not super common for me.I even had a few times my lats felt slightly pumped.On chest day,it felt good but my chest did not blow up as my arms did,it did seem very dense and i had a great pump to say the least,but nothing like on my arms.On legs days,i had very few leg pumps from this product.We all know how hard a leg pump can be to achieve even,but i dont feel this aided in that area as much.I will say that over the course of taking this,i seemed to become a good bit more vascular,especially when lifting.My legs even started to have some unusual vascularity,which i loved.

    Negatives/side effects:
    One very odd thing i had with this product was some unusual gas,and ill leave it at that.It did not hurt my stomach at all,but just gave me bad gas.One other thing i would like to say is i would like to have seen a bit more citrulline malate in it,dose seemed kind of low to me compared to what ive found effective.

    Value:
    With a price tag of $24.99 i can say this seems to be a good price.The product did exactly what it claimed to do,and you have a full 30 day supply for a realistic price.

    Dosing/taste:
    As i said before,i dosed 3 caps a day.I personally expiremented with the time to take it and could tell no difference if i took it an hour before or 30 min before.So i usually just took it with my T-blast about an hour pre workout.Now,one thing i did try was uncapping it,and i must say this seemed to make the effects a bit stronger.I actually began to just open and put all 3 in my pre workout drink for the day and the effects seemed more noticeable for sure.Mainly saw a difference in vascularity when uncapped.Also there was absolutely no taste at all.

    Overall:
    Yes i would recommend this to someone interested in a pump product,i used to be a skeptic of them myself until i used one.Simply put when i have a good pump,and feel i look big i feel i train to keep up with that swolen guy in the mirror.This product delivered in every way it said it would for me,it gave me great pumps and increased my vascularity and im a pretty vascular guy as is.I do think this product is best taken daily not just workout days,as the build up of nitrates is necessary but thats my opinion.I would have liked to see a bit more citrulline malate,but hey it worked.With a price point at $24.99 i do feel its a good value and is right up there with some of the top pump products we have all came to love.Thanks again NLA for the opportunity!

    First off thank you to Justin and Nla Performance for letting me run a tub of recover-d.I enjoyed it and here are my thoughts on it.Protein is a very hard supplement for me to rate,and a lot of people just go by taste and mixability,but this one offers much more.

    Effectiveness:
    So the biggest thing i can say about this protein is my recovery was truly enhanced with this product.I was literally going to failure nearly every workout and was hardly getting sore the next day,not to mention i just came off a hefty cycle.I do feel i continued to gain some muscle,but not enough to guage it.I will say this has a great blend of whey isolate/casein that truly shines.I loved taking a scoop of this before bed as it would help me stay a bit fuller through the night.I would wake up with noticeably less hunger than when not using.I also really like the fact it has bcaa's and over 9g of glutamine.very nice additon for sure.One other thing i would like to add is that i did not have any stomach isssues or bloat with this as i have with other proteins ive used.

    Negatives/side effects:
    I can truly say there are no negatives other than the fact i wish it werent 2 scoops for a serving.

    Value:
    At a price point of $29.99.I would like to see it a bit lower without a doubt,but for a good quality protein i cant complain to much.Not to mention all the extra goodies in the mix offered.A 2 pound tub has 18 servings,so could get a bit pricey over time for sure.

    Taste/Mixability:
    WOW!!!this protein taste amazing.Without a doubt one of the best ive ever had.I had chocolate eclair and man was it good.It also mixed very well,never once had any clumping or resdiue in shaker.it actually mixes up somewhat thick like an actual shake.I usually drik my protein with milk,as i did with this but also tried water and it mixed fine both ways.I will say the 2 scoops it takes to get a full serving can be a lot of powder though!

    Overall:
    I loved this product,i would,have and will recommend it to others i know.I my self have bought some before i even ran out of my tub to log.I had aided recovery,no stomach issues,great flavor to drink.What more could you ask for from a protein.Other than a bit cheaper maybe.This was an amzing product and i am so glad to have had the chance to try it,thanks again NLA Performance.

    Condense and swoll-n make for a great combo, the new supp-d and swoll-n won't dissapoint for sure Anything with a hefty amount of nitrates and swoll-n is just Nutty!
