    Took one half scoop, it mixed well.

    It tasted great too.

    This may be placebo, but I took it maybe five minutes ago and I feel a cool, calm focus.

    Thanks for the shaker too, guys.

    I'll update after training as well.

    I only took half a scoop today.

    The first thing I noticed was the calm focus. I had plenty of energy to train, but I wasn't all hyped up.

    I really liked that.

    I'm looking forward to trying out 3/4 -1 scoop tomorrow.

    I'll be doing some back hypertrophy and speed benching, along with the bandell bar.

    Here's today's training

    Anyway, here's todays leg training.

    Standing leg curl 3x20
    Three different toe angles

    Leg press one set forty or so reps

    SSB parallel box squat
    work up
    245x2 sets x6 reps
    335x4x3

    Was going to stick to two plates but my brother wanted to toss on another, and my speed was good, so whatever

    Ghr
    Bodyweight x5
    Band assisted x3x5

    Really slow negatives

    Reverse hyper 100x3x10

    One set B.Pak calves

    Good reaction on half a scoop. Full scoop will be intense

    That quick hit was definitely not placebo. If I'm more then ten minutes away from the gym when I Stimul8 I'm gonna get side tracked....most likely kicking ass and taking names

    Agree with monte. No placebo at all. Quick calm focus with lasting energy and thermo.

    Enjoy Ace

    Took a little less than a scoop before conditioning today.

    Not sure if it was the humidity or the stimul8 but I was seating like a hog

    I think next time before conditioning I'll try just a half scoop, this was pretty strong stim wise.

    I'm really digging this flavor.
    I don't drink most of my pre, I'll just throw Scoop in my mouth. But I enjoy drinking this on the way to the gym.
    I give it a few shakes, let it sit a second, and it's mixed really well.

    Anyway here's my training the last two days

    Fat man rows
    Bodyweight x 15,12,11

    Elbows flared, holding contraction at top

    Flat BB bench
    Bar x6
    135x2x6
    185x5 sets x3 reps

    Just playing around with grip and bar path like herder was talking about.
    I think either ring fingers or pinkies on the ring is fastest for me.
    Anyways, it needs more practice.

    1/2" PVC pipe (bandell bar) bench

    Hanging two ten lb kettle balls and one fifteen per side with red mini bands

    3x15

    These felt great. I love them.

    DB incline
    55x3x15

    Monkey bar pullups
    Bw x 7,6,6,7

    Focusing on keeping the sternum arched.
    Kept everything light today, no stain no hard sets really.

    Trying to be better about my deload week.

    Anyway if you're not in my stimul8 log, I've really enjoyed it these first two days.

    Sled
    50# 30 yard drag 30 sprint x2
    100# "" x2
    150# "" x2
    200# "" x 2
    50# "" x2

    Trainer called me out on my biomechanics. Said I had no knee and arm drive.
    I corrected it and the last sprint felt great.

    Post workout meal

    One sweet potato mixed with a cup of mixed raspberries and blueberries

    One cup white, two whole eggs, mixed with onion, pepper, and a tiny bit of pepper jack cheese

    Obviously humidity played a role but nothing makes me swear like Stimul8 so this doesn't surprise me bud.

    Somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 scoop is my sweet spot

    I am willing to wager that crazy sweat is mostly due to Stimul8 (and how it increases performance)! Great workouts, and glad you are enjoying the flavor Ace.

    I just threw a little under a scoop of stimul8 in my mouth while driving to the gym today.
    I'm not going to lie, I regretted it.

    Not because it's rough as straight powder (I always do it), but because I didn't get to taste it.

    Then I gave my girlfriend a scoop to try and I really wish I'd have drank mine.
    Yeah, I love the flavor.

    Anyway I got a great focus from the scoop, and my mind muscle connection was spot on.

    i'm not sure if it's the stimul8 (or having added conditioning work a month ago) but I feel like I can move thru exercises much more quickly without getting fatigued.

    Probably a little of both.

    Here's today's back training.

    Quote Originally Posted by aceroni View Post

    Meadows rows
    85x3 x10

    Dog bone pulldowns
    3x8
    Pause at nose, flex upper back hard /deep stretch

    Pendlay rows
    135x6
    185x3x6
    Elbows flared, really wide grip

    Kayak pulldown
    3x8

    Conventional deadlift
    135x3x3
    225x3x3
    225x4x3*
    315x2x2

    The first three sets of 225 felt great and I was in a really good groove, hips were firing quick today, right after clearing the knees, which is usually my technical issue with heavier weights.

    The second four sets of 225 I had a band around my hips, and pulling me backwards, like herder does. I don't remember what he calls it.

    Those were hard, and I think they got me out of my groove.
    315 was way slower than it should have been, so I just shut it down.


    Farmer walk:
    50# per handle 60yd x4 (open palms)
    100# x60yd x4
    140# X15yd x2
    140# x45yd x2

    Grip slipped on the first set of 140, so I did a walk of shame back to the 0yd line

    Another great workout Ace. I gotta admit, I enjoy the taste far too much to take it dry and chase with water. And I'd definitely say your conditioning with Stimul8 is propelling you.

    It seems that a little above 3/4 scoop is almost too strong for me. It doesn't negatively effect my training (the opposite, actually) but I was shaky at home after.. Not sure if it was from training arms or the scoop but I feel much better now, the come down off this stim is very smooth. I'm still focused, and have ample energy, but i'm calm.


    The calm focus from this is really my favorite part about this. This is where it shines above other pres that get you amped/ hyped. I prefer the calm focus, actually.

    Here's todays training.

    DB cross body supinating curl 15x8
    1.25 incline DB curl 20x6
    Fat bar tricep pushdown x 10
    Bench dip x12
    Over head spud strap extension x10

    Five rounds.. First one was a warmup

    Finished with 10 sprints on the air sprint
    15 on 35off

    A lot of guys find their sweet spot is at 3/4 of a scoop - so that does make sense.

    Took a half scoop during work last night.
    It was great, with all that focus I got a ton of work done, leaving my partner on the A.m. crew very well set up for success.

    A few nudes..
    abs starting to sharpen up a little... don't mind the fuzziness, took it on my phone.
    I think I'll be nice and cut by the time July rolls around, after a few diet tweaks.
    Conditioning and stimul8 are starting to take effect.

    I found on my stimul8 run I had to work up to a full scoop over a few weeks, it was far too much for me and I'm usually pretty stim tolerant. Glad your enjoying it the ace. Looking good ace semi homo....

    I definitely agree on the difference between 3/4 scoop and a whole scoop. It took me a while to be able to handle 1 scoop and I actually prefer 3/4 or just under which makes the tub an even better buy :-)

    Ace your physique as always Is impressive. You never disappoint

    Thanks everybody.
    I trained some legs today.

    The heat, along with stimul8, had me drenched.
    I was sweating quite heavily by the time I had finished warming up.

    Took about 3/4 scoop today, maybe slightly less than that, and it's really all I need.

    Here's todays training
