AE's review of the NLA Ultimate stack (sponsored)
Lets get this started properly. First a HUGE thank you to NLA for such a huge opportunity here. I truly appreciate it, and will give the best and most honest rundown of how this stack treats me.
For those that have followed previous logs of mine, I run a modified powerlifting style routine with 6 days a week of lifting and cardio 6-7 days as well. I am up well before the majority of the world, and am usually done with both cardio and lifting by 5am.
Here is the routine
Other supps currently:
MST Multi 32x
Protein (not needed with Recover D)
Caffeine and Methyl Synephrine (not going to use dependent upon Supp-D response)
I am very excited to give these a run, specifically the Swoll-N and Recover D. I am excited for all tbh, but it truly is interesting to me to try a protein like this, as I am always on the lookout for new and effective protein, Most who know me know I dont do a lot of supps, I just lift all the time and eat like crazy.
Dosing will be as listed, but for the sake of the log here it is
Recover D: 2 scoops post with my morning banana
Supp D: 1-1.5 scoops 20-30 mins pre
Swoll-N: 3 taken with Supp D
T-Bast: 3 with AM protein and 3 pm with dinner
Before pics will be up tomorrow. Lets all get this going

Taken 12/13 530am 206lbs
Recover-D: My personal favorite of the entire stack. The formula is designed in a way to speed up the recovery process. I will say that there were times when I was exceptionally sore, however, this protein shined elsewhere. Its taste and mixability were second to none. Once bigger sizes of this hit the market, it will be added to my protein collection, along with pronom.
Supp-D: This one had the biggest change for me over the course of the stack. At first, the flavor was a major deterrent to me. However, as time went on, it began to wear on me a bit. I was very impressed how at 2 scoops, it hit within a few minutes, and how unlike many other pre w/o's it mixed instantly. With a new formula and new flavors coming out, I am very interested to try this again.
T-Blast: Sill 50/50 here. I have tried a variety of other DAA based t-boosters in the past. Most of which offered me little. I will say that I like the varied formula here and think that over the long term this will reach some success for me. I will wait on my final analysis until I can continue bottle 2 within the week.
Swoll-N: I have not had the consistent response that most others have had with this. Agmatine has consistently left me wanting more. This is the only one in the stack that I am disappointed in, but not surprised. Most pump products do not do much for me, and this only did when taken with SuppD occasionally. This, most likely, is the only one that I would not purchase in the future.

Interested in your workout layout and routine also. Doubling up I see. Do you do pretty much the same workout bothe times? Thanks AE! Gunna be fun following for sure
12-13-2012, 08:34 AM
Welcome guys....and thanks for coming along for the ride. Had a good first day on this stack
I altered my typical cardio to 20 mins pre workout and 20 mins post as I always try to get a good sweat going prior to the lift
Incline BP (7 sets) 2 sets @ 275 for 3 each 3 sets @ 225lbs 5 per
Incline flys/db press superset (5 sets) 75lbs sets of 8 per exercise (I do 8 reps @ flys and then burn with press with no rest)
JM Press (5 sets) 2 sets @ 225lbs 5 reps per
CG BP (5 sets) 1 set @ 265lbs 2 reps
Took Supp-D and Swoll-N together prior to the cardio. Within 10 mins had a good tingle coming on, and a nice deal of focus. The pump was good, not great, however, I am hoping that I will need to just build up to a better pump. On the downside, the taste of Supp-D (subjective I know) was less than stellar. Certainly not as bad as others I have tried, but it was not good at all to me. I will most certainly be able to get it down, but it left a bad aftertaste as well.
Once the workout was completed took 2 scoops of Recover -D with 3 tblast. THe chocolate flavor was excellent. It mixed easy and after the Supp D earlier I was concerned about taste, but the Recover D truly exceeded expectations. Very rich and creamy with water. Would love to see a larger container in the future.
To answer Ms's question about my workouts, I usually adjust on the fly. I try not to do all the same things all the time and try to focus on specific areas for body parts (i.e. upper chest as opposed to all out chest). Additionally, even at 36, I try to lift my heaviest every single workout. Lifting at 4am makes that difficult sometimes, but I will go as heavy as I can for each day. Just how I have always been.
Here is my basement gym. I have roughly 600lbs of freeweights and an interlocking db set

Very deatailed log bro! You deff get your workout in before most are out of bed lol. I can't realy relate too much with the supp-d for a couple more days till I get my ultimate stack. I'm pretty sure Justin indicated that the taste is subject to change aswell.
I know the swoll- n realy started kicking in the longer I was using it and by the end the pumps were insane, so I'm sure that's gunna change for the better in this log. I just finished a Bottle of it.
You are so rite about the Recover-D, its top notch! And the flavor is amazing exspecialy with cold milk. My wifey won't keep her hands off it, lol!
By the way you have a sweet home gym. It would sure be nice to not have to fight all the high schoolers at my gym. I get kinda pissy with them lol!
Looks great here, look forward to following bro!

In for this!
Your thoughts on the Supp-D & Recover-D pretty much echo my own - one is bleh, the other is stellar!

Back and Shoulders
Had a good run with back and shoulders today, eventhough had a bad night's sleep thanks to the dog. Same pre workout protocol with 1.5 scoops of supp-d and 1 dose of swoll-n. Energy (thankfully) came quick
35 mins 12% incline 4.0 mph- produced an awesome sweat
Rack pulls (6 sets) 495lbs 2 sets of 2
BB Rows (5 sets) 2 sets @ 185 for 5 each
Wide chins (5 sets) BW sets of 8-10
Arny presses (5 sets) 60-70lbs sets of 8-10
BTB BB Shrugs (5 sets) 275lbs sets of 8
Strength was good throughout, which I most certainly attribute to the energy. I might crash later, but for that time of the morning I was jazzed with little sleep. Additionally, 1 point to note, the pump was not that prevalent during the workout. However, after my shower it was very prevalent, veins throughout my forearms as well as noticeable in my front delts. That last part made me smile a lot
Tomorrow legs/bis in the afternoon with fasted cardio in the am.

Got in a little morning fasted cardio. 50 mins 12% incline 3.6-4.2 mph Sweat was great. Finished with some ab work for about 10 mins. Will be hitting legs/bis this afternoon probably with a little warmup on the treadmill prior to.
weighed in at 204bs this am, which is surprisingly low for me

I won't start doing cardio for a bit. Just trying to bulk up as much as I can while keeping my abs. If I loose them then I will gladly do some. Maybe 12 % like you, but maybe not kinda afraid of heights lol
12-15-2012, 03:16 PM
Just finished my saturday lifting...here is the rundown
treadmill 25 mins 12% 3.5mph (great sweat started)
Back squat warmups (5 sets) 135lbs-185lbs deep sets of 5
Box squats (10 sets) 3 sets @ 275lbs sets of 5
*legs were like rubber after this
hammer curls (5 sets) 50-55lbs sets of 8
BB curls (5 sets) 3 sets @ 115lbs sets of 8
Pump in the forearms were exceptional, veins were very apparent. Finished with my recover d 2 scoops and 2nd dose of 3 tblast. I cannot stress enough how great the recover d tastes. Very rich even in water. Excellent
Also had 2 scoops of supp-d with my 3 swoll-n prior to workout. The energy kicked in quickly as did the tingles. Tingles hit within 10 mins and hit hard.

fasted cardio in this morning. 50 minutes 12% 4-4.1mph, followed with some ab work.
Took my t-blast first dose with post shake.
Today is "heavy" chest and tris.....this afternoon should be fun
12-16-2012, 03:16 PM
Just completed chest and tris. Here is the rundown
treadmill warmup: 20 mins 12% 3.6mph caused a good sweat and got myself nice and loose
Flat BP (8 sets) 335lbs 2 reps 2 sets @ 315lbs 2 reps and 1 rep respectively
Incline db fly/press superset (5 sets) 65lbs sets of 8 each
JM Press (6 sets) 3 sets @ 225lbs 5 reps each
2arm db ext (5 sets) 75lbs/50lbs to failure @ each weight
Great pump, the energy was strong. I will say that the energy gets progressively better as the workout goes, as I felt a slight draggy at the on set.
Normal dosing scheme today as was typical for each previous workout.
Tomorrow is a non lifting day, just cardio tomorrow morning.
