Staying Powerful in PCT with Formutech's Volatile
- 05-19-2013, 10:27 PM
Today was what I consider an offday - just went in to do bicep & ab work, in and out within an hour. Great workout, I was able to hit them hard with no big lifts beforehand to drain me. But I realized I only have one workout left of Volatile, so I saved it for tomorrow. Just ran 5g creatine mono, 1g bulk agmatine, 3g cit mal & some starbucks coffee - by the last set of biceps, my veins seemed bigger than I'd EVER seen them (even on msten) but the pump faded almost immediately.
That's something I've come to love about Volatile - not only is the pump blend great, it's lasting. Kind of a letdown with my homeblend today after getting used to the lingering swell. This was actually really great for me to see how Volatile stacks up against a basic ag/cit mal/creatine combo. Formutech's blend is just plain better.

It's a sad day when volatile comes to an end I need to see if the new orange is out cause I need some...

I will absolutely be ordering a tub of orange when it hits.

Well, today was speed bench, & I decided to do some heavy pushpress after the speedwork & then chest n' tris. What a great workout, my last 2 scoops well spent. Here's a pic so you can hopefully see how dang full my chest was after this routine, as well as where my bf is at since playing with my carbs & cals these last 4 wks in pct. Sitting at 202 dry in the morning, down 15 lbs since peak weight of cycle. Obviously some intramuscular glycogen & water weight lost coming off cycle, but as my muscles still seem bigger & full & strength is still the same (except squat) I'm inclined to believe I've lost a good 10lbs of fat or more without noticeably losing any muscle mass.
Speedbench 135x11, 205x3x8 sets
Pushpress 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 195x4, 205x3 (PR's, especially considering this was after speedbench!)
Incline Db Press 75s x12, 9, 9
Incline Hexpress 50s x10, 11, 11
Dips BWx15, 10, 12, 11
Cable Crossovers from 3/5 Way Up Pulley 30/side x13, 35x8, x8 ds to 20x12 ds to Bottom Pulley 15x14
This workout marks the end of my log of Formutech's Volatile Preworkout, & as I'm about 4wks thru PCT already & recovery has been great I see no reason to further log my PCT separately after this. I'm bigger, leaner, & stronger than 3 months ago (considerably), I found a new preworkout I love, & got a second date with Miss MMA coming this thursday evening for a late movie at her place. Life is good

Honestly can say I'm sorry to see her go
Formutech's Volatile - Berry Eruption flavor
Sweet, but not too sweet, and always smooth the whole way thru, I mixed 2 scoops routinely with 18-20oz cold water & loved it every time.
I assume it's the creatine, but there was always some white stuff left at the bottom that I'd have to swirl before my last drinks to make sure I got. This settling is intrinsic to almost any creatine-filled pre I've ever used, and it's not a big deal to me - it's just the nature of the beast. The rest of the solution blends really well & there is consistent enjoyable taste from the first oz to the last.
I have had more focus at times from higher-stim pre's, but never such consistent drive without a high-stim product. Volatile gives good focus in the gym without being overbearing or mindless. Just smooth attention to the task at hand - moving iron.
The only reason I can't give it a perfect score is because it's really not a huge kick in the ass even at 2 scoops & I know stim-junkies may be looking for more- if you're extraordinarily drained, you're gonna need more than 2 scoops of this stuff to stay awake. But you shouldn't be lifting when you're so weak anyway, which brings me to my point: Volatile's smooth energy was a great, no crash, no jitter, almost unnoticeable onset every time - you take it and kinda realize 30 min or so later you just feel really ready to do some work! After a long day wrenching (and often dieting), Volatile made me feel ready to kick ass & take names, without feeling cranked or propped up on stims.
Great stamina every time; never built up any kind of tolerance to the effects. I often lift very heavy for myself as a powerlifter, & it seems like, if anything, my rest times have decreased since before Volatile when I was on cycle! I've been able to lift with vigor from start all the way to finish.
Best non-hormonal product I've ever used, and consistent. Had my veins swollen & muscles inflated after every workout. Works better than 2 scoops of Hemavol or 2g of bulk Agmatine mixed with 3g bulk Cit Mal, for sure. That's the highest praise I can give it, because those are the only 2 things that really can make a noted difference in appearance.
Considering I have to run 2 full scoops for my sweet spot & there's only 32 scoops/tub, that's only 16 muscle-bursting workouts. That's the same servings I'd need & get with a tub of Hemavol, but Volatile offers much more than just pump - there's the stim/endurance aspect as well, & it's only a few dollars more than Hemavol on NutraPlanet. This really isn't a great price/serving ratio in anyone's book, but I enjoyed it so much I'll be paying the full price to try Orange when it comes out anyway. If you want something enough, you'll pay the man what he asks. And this is a good value compared to Hemavol too, so that helps put it in perspective. Do you want something cheap, or something that works great?
Truly, never have I had a preworkout product I enjoyed so thoroughly time & again that didn't get old or wasn't too harsh for some days. And it always delivered, with no variation or tolerance built over a month lifting prob 5 days/wk. Volatile was the right choice for every workout (whether it be bodybuilding, powerlifting, or cardio), every time. I'm really pleased, and this won't be the last time I use the stuff - come on, Orange flavor! Can't wait
Big thanks to Formutech, Swanky, & the Brucester for letting me give an honest review of Volatile - you guys really have something here. And if you wanna send me a Formutech shirt to rep at the gym, you know I'd be happy to help spread the word

Gotta let the body recover at some point; you would be wise to listen if you think it's time. You've had a great run already for a good time on with great results.

I have some ideas for you Haha. You should try the cruising on Clomid at like 10-25 ED and tell me how it feels. Or Nolva. I'm insanely curious about that.
