  1. Kenpo is Volatile!


    Sponsored Formutech Nutrition Volatile PreWorkout Log.

    My thanks goes out to TheSwanks and Formutech Nutrition for allowing me the opportunity to log this PWO.

    Attachment 96887

    Attachment 96888

    This PWO has a pretty good profile of ingredients for a balance of pump and stim. Let's see how this older lifter's body responds.

    In honesty I'm currently running a cycle of IML Osta RX. I figured this wouldn't interfere with logging a PWO.

    Othersupplements I'll be taking:
    iForce Compete, iForce Joint Help, Modern BCAA, Glucosamine, Multivitamin and Fish Oil. Please let me know if you want me to drop any of these during the log period.

    As of now here are my stats:
    Height 5'6". Weight 167 lbs Age 53

    Max Lifts Starting (1RM off cycle)
    Machine Bench: 255 lbs
    Machine Squat: 275
    BB Deadlift: 355
    Machine Shoulder Press: 115

    Workouts:
    All my workouts are on a daily basis in my garage gym. They are generally 1 to 1.5 hours long and utilize combinations of an Ironmaster machine and free-weights:

    Attachment 96890

    I train using a 7 day split and I use a HR monitor to time when my HR returns to a point that I can begin the next set.

    Feel free to post anything you'd like to motivate or make me do my best. If my weights for any lift seem "off" it might be due to incorrect form. Don't flame me (PM me instead) as I'm still learning. Welcome to my log!


  2. Final Rating and Thoughts on Formutech Nutrition's PWO called Volatile. I am a confessed stimulant PWO lover that has tried over 20 PWOs before this log. I enjoy a good PWO's energy level and like the results for my early morning workouts. With this said here are my observations:

    Mixability: 10/10 It only took a few swirls to mix. Do not shake as this results in a significant amount of foam.

    Taste: 9/10
    Flavor reminded me of tropical punch jello. There is no chemical aftertaste.

    Effectiveness: 9/10
    Smooth and clean energy from 1 scoop. Since I like more energy than the average person, my sweet spot was 1.5 scoops. I train with a heart rate monitor and noticed my heart rate would be consistently lower than usual once I dosed 1.5 scoops. This is not a bad thing since it allowed more sets to be performed in the same time period. Hang time was about 3 hours.

    Sides
    None. No crash or GI issues at all.

    Recommendation I would definitely recommend Volatile as a low stim PWO to my lifting friends.

  5. Weight 167.8 Goal 175

    Let the Volatility begin! I took my first scoop of Formutech Nutrition's Volatile PWO 30 mins before my workout. This mixed very well in 6 oz of water with no floaters or sinkers. The fruit punch flavor was a little sweet but overall it tasted like candy.

    In 30 mins I felt a mild sensation of the BA tingles and hit my first set.

    Energy was clean and lasted about 2 hours with no crash. I'm a definitive stim lover so next time I'm increasing to 1.5 scoops.

    Off to a great start!!! I find 12-16 oz to be my ideal serving size of water for a scoop of volatile.

    Thanks for joining brother! I love my gym and feel blessed to have it. I've been running Osta RX for 2 weeks out of a planned 6 weeks. There is indeed a speed and heavy bag in the gym. I use them both for the cardio portion of my workouts.

  11. Weight 168.8/175

    Was a balmy 17 this morning when I mixed Volatile at 1.5 scoops per 12 oz of water. I figured out that this tastes like tropical fruit jello and I like it!

    You guys are too kind! Thanks.

  15. In to following along. Always fun to catch your sessions KE. Plus, home gymers gotta stick together.

  16. Weight 166.6/175 The Devil's Weight!

    Another 1.5 scoops today and the desired energy level was achieved. I'm noticing that my pulse rate is running lower than usual (I train with a HRM). This is an interesting effect.

    Minus 5 today with the gym running at 40! Woohoo! Crazy!

    Very interesting effect and it has happened 2 days in a row. Will see if it happens today. I lift by those HR numbers, as soon as the HR drops then I immediately start the next set.

    I command triceps to grow!

  22. Weight 165.8/175

    Snow was knee deep and it was fun just trudging through it to the gym.

    1.5 scoops volatile in 14 oz water is the sweet spot for me. I noticed the pulse rate lowering effect again today. Nothing wrong and I feel great!
