You really won't notice anything in only 3 days, you have to have realistic expectations and give the product time to work. It isn't a stim/etc that produces acute effects immediately.
Yeah way to early to tell. Most not-so-natural anabolics will take a couple weeks to kick in so don't expect superdrol-esque inflation by day 3. Nothing to worry about. Definitely don't even bother with a preliminary verdict til at least day 10-14
Thanks bolt and anabro...I got to be patient with this product b/c I was expecting immediate results....I figured I just got suckered into another supplement scheme since haven't felt no differences yet
Not sure why you are so skeptical. You are only 3 days in, nothing kicks in that fast. I have ran PH's in the past, and they take time as well. I have found with supplements you have to have an open mind, and be in tune with your body. When I started , I was 4 weeks in and was going to give the bottle away. I took some notes on what changes I was noticing, and realized I had more mental focus, and better recovery. Glad I kept on it because that stack I ran had me beating PR's from my Halodrol run.
Has your thirst or hunger started increasing yet?
Oh you young ones! Stop with the instant gratification! Nothing good in life happens overnight.
I ran ABE for 6 weeks. After a week the hunger was through the roof and the leaning out was amazing. I could eat 400 g carbs and not see any change in body fat around the waist. So, give it some "real" time. I assume you are tracking something like body measurements to gauge progress?
Day 4 (July 19) Weight: 192
Hey everyone, I first off would like to thank the individuals who are encouraging me to not be in such a hurry with the instant results....I will continue my 30 day log and will not quit! Hunger and thirst has not increased noticeably and all I am doing is tracking my body weight along with the mirror test.
Today was my off day and I'm already 4 days into ABE cycle. I took my 4 caps (2 with my one meal and 2 more before bed time....is that ok?) Honestly, still don't notice anything different. Tomorrow is a big time workout day for me, and I'm very excited I don't have work tomorrow.
I guess I was skeptical about Anabeta Elite because it doesn't seem very popular. Wouldn't you think that a natural anabolic (that actually works) would be taken by everyone? Also, fitness channels on YouTube like the HodgeTwins or Elliot Hulse are credible sources in the fitness world and haven't even mentioned about how great Anabeta Elite is or even talked about it.
Anyways, that was my whole skepticism about the product and when I didn't see results in 3 days I just figured that I was scammed.
I'm going into my junior year in college and play mostly fullback because I lead block and hit very hard (not to brag) but that is my strong point in the game. I was doing all that at 192 pounds during my freshman and sophomore year in college. However, my dream is to play in the NFL at fullback, but 192 pounds is way too light for an NFL fullback. I've seen NFL fullback weight ranging from 225-275. Pretty wide range but the point is that I need to put on serious weight and of course strength. However, it seems like every time I get to the 200 pound mark I put on lots of fat which is unhealthy. At 192, I'm lean, in shape, and feel great about myself. However, my dream won't be fulfilled if I can't reach about 230 pounds. Does a healthy bulk from 190 to 230 seem unrealistic for a 20 yr old?
No way you are bulking to 230 from 190 in a short time span without either gaining a bunch of fat or jumping on some proper juice.
It's a very ambitious goal. That being said, do your very best to make it. Not like every fullback has an 8 pack. Can't always have your cake and eat it too.
Day 5 (July 20) Weight: 191
Woke up this morning, took my 2 caps of ABE with my preworkout and worked out (lifting and speed/conditioning)...I always wear short sleeved under armour that is tight and felt like a beast....noticed that my arms and stomach were blown up like balloons
My max effort lift today was barbell split squats for one rep on each leg (hit 295 on both legs..... the funny thing is my 1 rep max regular squat is 315)
Resisted Jumps 4x4 (felt more explosive than last week)
Chin ups 3x8 (last week- 8 8 5 reps, today- 8 8 7 reps)
Lateral Lunges 3x5 each leg (last week- 135 145 155, today- 135 155 160)
Roll Outs 3x10 (core exercise and didn't seem as tough as last week)
Close Grip Bench Press w/ chains on each side 3x12 (last week- 115 125 135, Today- 125 135 145x11reps!!!)
Glute/Ham Raises 3x8 (about as tough as last week)
Wrestler's Twist 3x6 (definitely stronger on this core exercise today)
Band Work for injury prevention
Not much competition today...a lot of individual drills....felt pretty good but nothing really worth mentioning
Came home, downed a protein shake along with a plateful of meatloaf, brown rice, and some broccoli dish (took my 2 ABE caps)
***I know that I'm eating above my calorie maintenance but I'm starting to become a lot hungrier all of the sudden....wondering if eating more would be a good or bad thing...don't want to be shoving all this food down my throat if I don't need those extra calories
Your measurements taking cold and flexed?
Time for some measurements (cold and not flexing)
First time I'm doing these measurements so I'll update more measurements during this time throughout the week
Day 6 (July 21) Weight: 190
Sunday was another off day for me because my grandma's basement flooded and ended up spending the day w/ her. I'll tell you all this, I'm definitely getting the hunger pains now! I ate a huge meal @ her house and about 2 hrs later my stomach was empty again....so I ate more food and got hungry again! What the hell? I'm wondering if I should be eating this much or I'll put on fat! Obviously, I ate a lot so we shall see the weight gain tomorrow.
Eat!!! Sleep and hit the gym like you mean it. You are going to love the results.
You won't have a problem with fat gain as long as you keep your cals/macros in check.

Well i woke up at 193 but yesterdays was 190....all i did was eat when i was hungry and gained 3 lbs....no good huh?
Day 7 (July 22) Weight: 193
Like I've been saying, my weight normally fluctuates from 187-193. I went to work from 8-4:30 and hit the weights around 5:30 which was a damn good day for me!
Incline Bench Max- 225
Box Squat w/ bands 8x2- last week 125... this week 135!

Caught passes w/ QB
****Pretty much improved in every lift from last week and set a new PR on one of my exercises
Ate great food tonight and as usual, still taking 4 caps of ABE
Was brushing my teeth and noticed my upper body had visible veins showing in areas I usually do not see....theyre not sticking out like snakes but it was interesting that I could see them around my bicep and pec area...you guys ever experience this?
By the way, cold and flexed from yesterday
So how much weight can someone like me put on w/ ABE in an 8 week cycle? Also, say if I put on 10 lbs from ABE my first cycle, will the product be as effective the second, third, and fourth time? I want to be 200 this football season, 210 next football season, and 220 my final yrs remaining
The vascularity increase you are experiencing is a typical benefit reported from people using ABE.
It is hard to judge exactly how much weight gain to expect in a run of this product. That honestly has to do with diet and consistency more than a supplement. I would just eat for what you are trying to accomplish and worry less about expectations. The gains will come. It is very easy to let your mind throw you in a funk when concentrating on a number you see on a scale.
With the proper off time period you should be able to enjoy the benefits every run of ABE. As you gain mass your daily requirements increase as well to experience gains. This makes it a bit more difficult to match previous runs as the bar is raised. It all comes down to how bad you want it and how devoted you are to your goals.
Good luck on that 200 goal brother. You got this!
Day 8 (July 23) Weight: 189
Hey fellas, all day I was constantly thinking about my bulk and whether or not I should do it. I was thinking about it so much that I couldn't even focus during my speed session today. Finally, I talked w/ my dad and it's best for my health to maintain my weight around the 190 mark and I totally agree (I look good and have always felt good about myself). The problem was I wanted to bulk up, so I can get strong as **** for the season coming up. However, I'll get fat, out of shape, the ladies won't love me anymore, and I'll have low self esteem. When the season arrives, I'll carb up around 192-195 mark, but as of now, I will stay in the 189-190 mark! Now the mind is clear, so let's get ready!
Noticing more vascularity in my shoulder. Used to only see my main vein, but now I can see the main vein w/ smaller ones branching off of it!
Aggression is nasty....not taking **** from no one anymore
Carb crazy today...had like 4 bowls of cereal
Tomorrow is a huge day in the weight room! Need to beat last week's numbers and come in w/ an attitude. Won't be long til the season arrives!
For the record, my goals are to recomp my body while eating at maintenance calories and to get as strong/fast/explosive as **** off this 8 week cycle!
What do you attribute the aggression from?
