    Hahahaha...Anabeta would never say something like that!


  2. After my last two workouts and all the BJJ I am feeling really beat up in a good way. My legs, shoulders, tris, chest, and traps are all super sore. I am really happy to get today as a rest day before I go kill it again tomorrow!

    As a side note, how many days off should I take from the L-dopa each week. Is just one ok, or should I take two? I am taking it to help me get to sleep and stay asleep and I know those effects fade if taken daily. What do you all think? Thanks!

    Best,

  3. Everything in moderation is not a bad thing to go off of. With caffeine I used to do 2 days on 1 off.

    Always good advice, and thank you very much for following/posting! I am hoping someone has info specific to L-dopa (Dopadex, Powerfull, HGH Pro, etc...) about the best dosing protocol for sleep enhancement. Either way, that is good advice for life!

  5. I felt SOOOOOOOOOO good at the gym today. I blasted through cardio like a monster and then hit the weights. I was telling my friend about rack deads yesterday, and it made me really miss doing them. I haven't done a rack dead since I hurt my back over two years ago, but tonight I just had to. I planned on starting light and seeing what I could do. I ended up comfortably going much higher than expected and felt great doing it. I pulled about 315 x 6 and then got about 355 x 4. I say "about" because a lot of the weights here are in KG and some are in pounds. A plate might be 45 pounds or 20kg, which is 44.3 or something like that. In addition, most of the middle weights are 10kg instead of 25 pounds which is significant. I pulled 160KG to be exact, but I try to report in pounds because I know the KG-lb converting is a pain. Anyway I felt freaking awesome doing the rack pulls, and I don't think I got that weight for more reps than that when I did them a few years ago, so I am really getting stronger. My total numbers were:

    Rack pulls: 315 x 6, 355 x 4
    Normal-grip pulldowns on a plate loaded machine: 265 x 12-5-3
    Free Motion Row (by a company called Ground Zero)*: 200 x 6-4-4
    cable curls (from the cable cross position...where you stand in the middle and pull from both sides): 7 plates per side x 9-5-4
    4-finger reverse barbell curls on an extra fat bar (no thumb): 100 x 7-5-3


    *The free motion row was an interesting machine. It reminded me of a pulldown mixed with a seated row...seemed like a very similar movement to a face pull. Here is a link to a pic so you know what I am talking about: http://www.csmfitness.com/GAPics/Sel...Row_10789.html

    My back never hurt at all throughout the rack deads. I will have to wait and see how I feel tomorrow, but so far it looks like I will be great! My form was very good, so that helped I'm sure. My grip wasn't the strongest I've felt, but it is getting stronger by the day.

    BJJ also felt awesome, and I had some really good, really competitive rolls. The only bad part was after class, I was trading techniques with a visitor from LA. He showed me a couple of decent things to use when getting out of triangle setups, which was cool, but when showing me, he stacked me completely over my neck (so I was bent completely back over my neck with all of his weight on top of me). I was a really stupid thing for him to do, because in live rolling, I would never let someone stack me like that, but I didn't even expect him to do something so reckless when just showing a technique (the right thing would have been to gently put pressure on and then explain how far to go with it, or at least warn me about what he was doing...). He was a four-stripe blue belt, too, so he really should have known better. Either way, I was nice about it. I showed him a few techniques that I like to do, and a few things I caught him with when we were rolling, and then called it a day. My neck has hurt since then. I have a dull ache in my thoracic spine that I can't get out. I took some advil and my wife massaged it, but I will still need some work with my homemade contraption (two tennis balls taped together with athletic tape...REALLY gets into the spine when rolling on it). I hope it is ok when I wake up tomorrow.

    On a side note, I just went completely hypo for no reason. I took 2 ABE at 430 and ate my PWO meal at 5. I felt great, but I guess I needed more carbs, because I started losing vision and getting dizzy. I was afraid that dude screwed me up worse than I thought, but I remembered feeling the same way the first time I took Pslin (only ate half a bagel with it...went hypo almost immediately). I ate a half a wheat tortilla, my wife made me eat some pudding, and I drank a protein shake. Now I feel good again. I guess ABE is just THAT strong. Make me feel bad for ppl who spend more money on a month's worth of nutrient repartitioners, when I get the same effect for LESS money from Anabeta PLUS giant strength gains. Anyway, it has been an interesting day to say the least. I will update again tomorrow. Thanks for reading!

  6. I like that free motion machine and use it from time to time when I actually use machines. Solid update with lots of great info. Nice to see things are really starting to kick off as far as full blown effects here.

    Yeah it felt like a cool exercise...normally wouldn't use it as my main back exercise, but it is definitely a nice addition and felt like it hit my back at a different angle. The only problem with it (ironically, being called "Free Motion" and noting on the machine that it provided a better range of motion than other machines) is that the cables were not far enough from the bench to allow full extension, so it was only about 80-85% of a full rep range. Aside from that, it was a cool machine and felt like it is a good thing to add at least once a month or so.

  8. Back feels great today. DOMS hasn't set in much in my upper back, and my lower back feels better than it usually feels after a night of working out and doing jiu jitsu. I guess the rack pulls were a safe exercise, and I can't wait to add them in again!

    My neck, after a lot of rolling, stretching, massaging, advil, and a warm bath, feels pretty sore today, but nothing too serious. I believe it will be fine by tomorrow's BJJ class. Still not a great thing to happen, but glad I took extra time to manage it last night.

    The Dopadex REALLY helps me stay asleep through the night. The difference is pretty astounding, and it helps me get by on less sleep than I would normally need. Also, this could just be me being 29 with a beautiful wife, but I feel like I get an almost instant libido boost from the Dopadex as well. It's not a 24/7 thing; it's more like, I take it, I get tired, I get into bed...and then boom. That is also resulting in getting less sleep than I try to get, but I am feeling great throughout the day anyway. Speaking of less sleep than I would normally need...

    I am feeling the energy from the ABE full force. I have been sleeping 6-6.5 hours per night every night this week, but I feel great. Normally I need 7.5-8 hours to feel good. I still try to sleep at least 8 hours on Friday and Saturday nights, but recently I have been waking up before my alarm. The energy and sense of well-being seems about the same as regular AB, which makes sense, as I don't think either of the extra ingredients are supposed to have effects on energy. Well-being is pretty hard to compare, because I am inexplicably looking much leaner than I was at this point in my last AB run. I say "inexplicably" because I am eating for bulk right now, whereas I was recomping last time. I am also heavier than I was at this point in my last log (still in the 85-86 range), but I am looking very ripped. The only conclusions that I can draw are:

    A: the extra ingredients are helping to both burn more fat and add more muscle
    B: the extra ingredients are helping to keep my muscles more pumped and full, so that I appear leaner and more muscular
    C: both A and B are true to some extent

    It is pretty early to say which one of those is true, but I do feel incredibly strong this week, even compared to last week. The scary part is that, in general, I believe that forskolin really hits its stride around the 4-week mark, which means that the effects have not peaked yet. This is just from reading user reports on the Internet, as I have never tried forskolin before, but this is generally accepted to be correct, right?

    Anyway, still feeling great, and I can't believe that I am not even halfway through this run! Switching to recomp will be interesting, but I might have to keep my carbs higher than I did on my last log, because the nutrient repartitioning effects seem to be stronger this time. I don't know if that is the extra ingredients, or just my body responding better to the original extract. Do forskolin or 7OH have nutrient repartitioning properties? That's all for now.

    Again the two questions I am looking for answers to if possible:
    1. Is it correct that forskolin generally peaks in effects around week 4?
    2. Do forskolin or 7OH have nutrient repartitioning properties, or are those effects likely just my body responding better to the Anacyclus pyrethrum?

    As always, thanks for following!

    Best,
    Tyler

  9. Forskolin offers more gradual results so the effects are best seen over a longer duration, I wouldn't say it necessarily starts to peak, but the results will start to be noticed around then.

    They may not have direct nutrient repartitioning effects, but they are putting the body in a more favorable hormonal position to avoid increases in fat and possibly decreases in it (depending on other factors).

    OK sweet, thanks! So it seems like the hypoglycemic reaction was likely just the original extract's effects. Pretty amazing that that is just one of many effects it has; it's a great compound!

  11. Well, my diet the past two days has been horrible. I don't know what the hell has been wrong with me, but I have been pigging out big time, all in the evenings, and mostly with high-carb, bleached carb foods. I am talking at least 600-1000 calories of extra food each day, and most of it has been crap. Amazingly, I am not showing the effects of it very much (I normally have a food-baby thing going on the day after I eat like that), which is really shedding light onto how effective the ABE is, but I have to get my act together. Even when bulking, there is no excuse for eating like that. I will clean it up, and I apologize to the PES team for neglecting to keep my diet where it should be. Recomp starts soon (a week or so from now), so I still have a long way to go!

    Best,
    Tyler

    P.S.- my back hasn't been sore like this in years. Awesome workout on Wed!

  12. Update for tonight's pushing workout: my neck is still very sore from that idiotic stuff that happened on Wed, plus my back and traps are very sore as well, so I decided to skip BJJ tonight. I also kept tonight's workout load a bit lighter at only 3 exercises. My shoulders were really sore from the rack deads on Wednesday, which surprised me, but still, a great workout is a great workout. Despite how sore I was (am), I still had a great workout and moved up in my lifts. Here are the numbers:

    Flat bench: ~200lbs (90 kg) x 5-2-2
    Dumbbell shoulder press (shoulders felt very sore during warm-ups, but I decided to still push it hard): 60s x 6-2-1
    Triceps cable press down: 140 (the machine here doesn't go higher, unfortunately) x 16-5-4

    My weight is still in range (85-86kg) despite my horrible diet the past two days, but I don't look quite as ripped as I did on Wednesday. I won't be making that mistake again. My wife brings stuff home a lot. I have to tell her to stop, because I can't have good food in the house. Last night I think I woke up in the middle of the night and ate some stuff. I don't remember doing it, but I saw the wrappers this morning. I know I am bulking and AB increases hunger, but I ate the wrong things. Aside from feeling guilty, all of the bleached carbs and refined sugars left me feeling sluggish during tonight's cardio. I still managed to push it hard, but it was an uphill battle. Bottom line: I could feel a difference from eating poorly and I can't make that mistake again. That's all for now. Thanks for reading!

    Tyler

  13. Not a big deal that your diet has been terrible. The key is to acknowledge the fact and change what you are doing to get back to where you were. This is just a speed bump. Just stay driven and killin it and you will get back to seeing the positive aspects of this run. Dust yourself off bro you got this!

  14. Had another intense leg workout yesterday. My back and traps are still sore from Wednesday's pulling day, so I went with a very basic lifting plan. Stiff-legged deads and Bulgarian split squats. 5 sets of each, with a set of leg raises (abs) between each one. Went progressively wider-gripped with the deads in efforts to improve both my hamstring strength and flexibility. I managed to go heavier than ever before with the split squats: 2 sets with 40s, 2 with 50s, and the last one with 60s. I know that's not huge weight, but it sure is for me, as my first time doing this exercise was a month ago and I am already feeling A LOT more balanced with my leg stability and strength. I am loving both of these exercises, although I hate the way I feel for about 3 or 4 days afterward. I tell myself that it is the feeling of getting bigger, stronger, and tougher...but still.

    Diet is back on track. As I speak, my wife is finishing a giant dinner of chicken breast with red and green peppers, ginger squid, and fried garlic and ginger pea pods. In other words, I am ending this post right now so I can go eat that! Next workout is tomorrow. I will update afterwards.

    Best,
    Tyler

  15. DOMS can be really stinkers sometime haha. I am like you though, 2 or 3 days post legs, my legs and ass are so sore it is ridiculous.

    That dinner sounds amazing. I am still fasting and just the sound of it makes me want to start cooking haha.

    Sorry to start the cravings, dude! The squid was by far the best part. I'll try to get the recipe and post it here if I get a chance. It would fit any diet style and it's awesome!

  17. OK guys tonight I wanted to make sure I went nice and heavy with the weights. It seemed to make sense since I am bulking (few more days left before recomp) and I am looking/feeling super strong. My numbers did not disappoint! I set a new personal record on chainsaws and super wide grip pull downs, as well as getting in great sets on biceps and forearms.

    Chainsaws: 100lb dumbbell x 12-6-5*
    Super-wide grip hammer grip plate loaded pull downs (there has to be a shorter name for this): 110kg (~245 lbs) x 4-2-2
    barbell curls (on the preacher bar): ~80lbs (30kg plus the bar) x 6-2-2
    Hammer curls: 40 lb dumbbells x 4-2-2

    *Chainsaws were lighter and higher-rep because my gym doesn't have anything heavier than 100lb dumbbells.

    Cardio was nice and intense. BJJ was really good as well. I spent most of my time rolling with my training partner of several years. We both know each others' games really well, and we spent about 2 hours working on our biggest weaknesses. I am trying to get him to recognize and capitalize on opportunities to use triangle chokes that come up within the game he likes, and he is working with me to get my hips more explosive and better timed for escapes. That probably sounds extremely boring, but I am really happy to get to work on anything that needs work, especially since people here are improving so fast that I need to make sure I keep up.

    Back to gym performance, I have never gotten close to that weight on super-wide hammer pulldowns before. I needed a spot just to get myself locked down into the seat, since the weight was so much heavier than me. I am really starting to see several benefits here.

    1. I am seeing the benefit of bulking as I seem to be gaining strength faster and in wider margins than I was when recomping on regular AB.
    2. I am seeing the benefit of ABE over regular AB. I am looking leaner than I could possibly have imagined given that my weight hasn't decreased and I am eating for bulk.
    3. I am seeing the benefit of starting the log a bit stronger than I started my last one. I lost a lot of my gains from my last AB log due to laziness and poor dieting, but I still kept enough to be a bit stronger at the start. I also tried to get a good few weeks of good workouts and decent diet in before starting the log. I didn't look great, as I was much fatter before all of that than I normally am (from my honeymoon), but I do feel like I was better primed mentally if nothing else.

    I can't believe how much bigger I look in the mirror compared to a mere 3 weeks ago, all while keeping the same weight and losing fat! ABE and hard work seem to compliment each other extremely well.

    OK it is time to eat a bunch of pork tenderloin and sweet potato leaves with garlic, salt and maybe some ginger. Goodnight (or, for most of you, good morning)!

    Best,
    Tyler

  18. Awesome update! Congrats on the PR and feeling/looking stronger

    That is really awesome news about all of your gains so far. That is what I love about AB/ABE, it helps in so many areas and getting in those extra calories while taking ABE is for sure helping with the gains. The added Forskolin in ABE really was a fantastic addition for body composition effects.

  19. Solid work man...nice to see you getting some very good effects. This is the point where things start to just continue to build and improve and I love it. I only have about a week left of my ABE and it is going to be sad times when I run out (for now).

    Dang, super sad like me and my Alphamine. I have a bottle of ABE sitting on my porch as we speak though. Super excited

    Thanks, dude! Yeah I really cannot believe the difference between this and the old formula. The old formula was just so potent; I never thought I would respond so well to the extra ingredients, too! I have never had great results from strength-building or fat burning supps before, then I tried the original AB and couldn't believe how well it worked. Now ABE is just a whole extra bunch of awesome on top of the already-awesome original extract. The best part is that I am only about halfway done!

    Yeah I am not going to lie; I will be legitimately depressed when I run out. I wish I could run this forever. I honestly feel that any money I have ever spent on supplements aside from AB, ABE, and the essentials (protein, BCAA, PWO) has been wasted. This is pretty much the only thing I think I will ever need. Now I just have to hope PES doesn't stop making it for any reason!

  24. You guys are selling me on trying Anabeta. Is this something that could be run during PCT for a mild PH cycle ( Finaflex 1Alpha).
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

    I don't believe there is any reason why it couldn't, but you would also need your standard PCT stuff in addition (an AI such as Erase or Formestane would probably be enough for a mild PH). I think people have had good results using it as part of a PCT, but I have no experience with using it that way. PES guys, please chime in with more info!

  26. ABE or AB is an amazing addition to a pct.

    I typically run serm/daa/Abe/EPRO for pct.

  30. Sorry I didn't have time last night to post my workout numbers. I will get to that in a few hours when I am off work. Had a great workout though, tried some thing I don't normally do, and am still seeing rapid strength gains. Craziest part is the fact that I am looking so shredded even though I am eating for bulk. I will still switch to a recomp diet this weekend, but it seems like I can enjoy more carbs throughout the early part of the day. I will try to replace carbs in my evening meal with coconut oil or other good fats (just got some organic virgin coconut oil...not easy to find here), and reduce my daily caloric intake while keeping protein high. I am looking amazing for my weight; now it's time to see just how ripped I can get by the end of this!
