Only about one day left of.. Sad, sad.
4 caps 2Am/2 pre
1.5 Scoops Pre/Intra
1 scoop White flood/ added extra 500mg
I was watching the Boston coverage in between first few sets. Such a tragedy. I will not get into because my views on events like this, may not be the same views others have.
Warmup: Incline DB Press 10x10 45's
Decline press 2pps 10x10 <---- I believe last time my 10x10 was 1 pps, strength increasing
SS w/Pushdowns 10x10 85lbs
Cable Crossovers 10x10 30lbs
ss w/ assisted dips <---- decreased 60lbs of assistance, strength is starting to go up fast
10lb medicine ball throw against trampoline
ss/ w Rope pushdowns 10x10
ss/ w pushups against the smith machine bar These 3 were all done with only the break from walking from one to the next
I was getting a good pump, so I did some one arm pushdowns as well, just so I could look at pump in mirror lol
Finished with quick 5 mins HIIT on elliptical
Notes: I felt like the volume just wasn't enough. Since starting my recovery, and stamina have been amazing.
Even though my calories are low, and I have been doing the 10x10 stuff, strength is starting to go way up. I am 12 days into Versa-1 so I'm guessing its kicking in. Today I am adding to the mix.
Not the greatest macros, but I kept calories low.
4 caps Natural EFX 2am/2pre
1 Versa1 pre
4 caps Anabeta Elite spread with meals
1.5 scoops Endurance
Did 20 mins HIIT on the elliptical.
I could have easily gone a lot longer, but my wife was skipping the gym, so I headed home.
Fat 70 26%

Bear with me. I have an extensive background in sales, working for the nations largest line-of-sight internet provider. I also run Twitter accounts for a music artist, a startup clothing company, and an entertainment company. I will try to not make the review sound like a sales pitch.
So when I applied to log Endurance, I wasn't quite sure how I was going to properly log/review a BCAA Intra product. Besides the normal Taste, Mixability. Within a few days, that changed.
I was extremely surprised at how much I was able to push myself during my workouts. I had just been cleared to workout(car accident), about a month prior to starting Endurance. I was struggling to get back in the groove. I have been doing 10x10 with minimal 20-45 sec rest in between sets. Endurance keep me from tiring out at all. I also noticed my recovery was extremely fast. In my log you will see that at times, I would go back and do more sets, because I never felt sore.
I have chosen to replace the Intra that I had been using successfully for years, with Endurance. No need to name it, I will just say it was Purple lol. I think Endurance would be awesome with some bulk LCLT thrown in. I enjoyed Compete for that reason, but bulk would be cheaper option. Any idea on how bad bulk LCLT taste? I wouldn't want to ruin the Melon flavor.

Taste: 10/10 No matter how many times I added water to it, the taste stayed amazing. Reminded me of Midori Melon Liquor
Mixabilty: 9/10 No problems there. Used my blender ball, shook like crazy, and it was good to go. Typical foam, and floaters like other products
Performance: 10/10 Even days when I didn't use a pre, my workouts were a breeze. I had never used a C-O-P containing product, but I believe that is what gave me the boost to keep going on reps.
- I also did 65 mins of elliptical one day, with most of it being pretty high intensity. That is unheard of for someone who hates cardio as much as me.
Recovery: 10/10 Did 10x10's lots of volume, and had very minimal soreness.
Overall: 10/10 Great flavor, mixes easy. It did exactly what it was supposed to. I averaged 1800-2500 calories and was taking fat burning supplements, and Endurance helped keep my muscle from being wasted away.
I will shorten up review for Nutraplanet site.
I need to order a tub. I am debating on grabbing the orange, or going back to Melon since I already know it tastes awesome.
Thanks again to Formutech and cswalczakny for choosing me to log Endurance.
