I officially started on Saturday by taking 1 cap at around 4pm after the mail arrived. I didn't notice any huge surges or rushes but I did perceive a smooth, calm static level to my energy. I will often notice a lag during the early evening hours but I felt like I maintained a good, constant energy level until bedtime.
On Sunday, I took 2 caps total for the day, 1at 1130 and 1 at 430 pm. I did it this way because my normal workout time is 530 am and I use my PWO, which includes caffeine, beforehand. Again, I felt like I was able to maintain a nice, solid level of energy throughout the day, no extreme surges but no real lags either. I did an evening biut of cardio at 830 pm but did not notice any extra sweating or increased body temp.
For Monday, I decided to experiment a little and replaced my 530 am PWO with a cap of Oxy Black. I wanted to see how the cap wouod affect my workout and if I would be able to notice any increased body temp, sweating, etc. Well...I did not notice any of those indicators, however, I was completelh aware that I was fatiguing much sooner throughout the Bootcamp workout. My muscle pump and fullness was down but it was really more the muscle fatigue than anything else that stood out. I didn' necessarily get the feeling that my calorie expenditure was increased. Now...I certainly don't fault the Oxy Black for this. Without ingredients like Betaalanine, citruillline, creatine, etc, it's not fair to expect Oxy Black to act like a PWO. I did add a second cap that evening again at 430pm with the same smooth extension of my natural energy level until bed.
This morning, I went back to simply using my PWO before lifting chest and will add 2 caps of Oxy Black at 1130 and 430.
So far, I have noticed some good effects in terms of appetite suppression. It has definitely been difficult for me to get readjusted to 2750 cals a day instead of the bu ll ing level I have been at the past 3 months. The Oxy Black takes the edge off my desire to eat as often so I can stick to my 5-6 meals without the extreme urge to stick in a nukber 7 or 8.
I am enjoying the smooth, consistent energy levels throughout the day. As I stated in my OP, I am very tolerant and conditioned to stims so the way Oxy Black is just keeping my energy level at that alert level throughout the afternoong and evening is perfect. No jitters, no crash at all.
I have had no sleep problems or issues at all...even with taking my second cap at 430 pm.
So far, so good. Next progress pics are tomorrow.
