Phenadrol by Genomyx Log
My name is Aaron Fenlason. I am 38 years old and stand at 5' 7". I began pursuing a fitness lifestyle in January of this year. At that time, I was 198 lbs and just over 26% body fat. My original goal was to drop 30 lbs and be under 15% body fat. Currently, I weigh in at 178 lbs and am at 16.4% body fat.
This is the first time that I have added a fat burner to my regular supplementation and I hope that this product will help me breeze by my original goal. I would like to thank Genomyx for giving me the opportunity to log my experience with Phenadrol.
I have tried individual samples of fat burners in the past and have experienced cold sweats and jitters, so I decided to begin this morning with only one capsule as the directions suggest for beginners. I ate breakfast after taking it and then headed to the gym for a grueling shoulders and arms workout. For the first part of my workout I was feeling worn out, I assume because I did not have my cup of coffee. I received a burst of energy towards the end and actually felt that I could have kept going for another hour.
Since I didn't experience any negative side effects from the Phenadrol, I decided to go ahead and take another capsule with my lunch. I am now experiencing some sweating and increased heart rate, but nothing too serious. I suspect that these side effects will subside in a few days once my body adjusts to the supplement.

Today was day 3 of taking Phenadrol. I've had some interesting experiences with the product. As I noted in my last log, I didn't experience any negative side effects with the first capsule and only some minor sweating and increased heart rate with the second.
Yesterday, I took one capsule in the morning and had quite a different reaction. Within 5 minutes, I was flushed and my skin felt like it was on fire. I assume that this was caused by the niacin. The tingling/burning sensations lasted throughout the day, sometimes more, sometimes less, so I didn't take a second capsule.
Today, I took one capsule immediately before breakfast and had the same reaction as yesterday. My chest and arms were bright red and on fire within a few minutes. The discomfort did not last as long today and had subsided by the afternoon. I decided to chance a second capsule.
The second capsule did not make me flushed. Instead, I experienced some sweat and jitters, as I had on day one. This want terribly bad, since I headed to the gym and was sweating anyway.
I'm not sure why I'm having different side effects - if it's something physiological, or if there is a problem with the proportion of ingredients in the capsules.
More to come...

I get the same burning feeling with 10 minutes of taking it. Some days I feel it more than others and the past couple of days I've been getting a rash on my arms which only lasts about 30 minutes.

My experience with the Phenadrol continues to vary. I was not feeling well on Friday, so I debated on whether to take it. I decided to go ahead and take one, although I didn't go to the gym. I didn't have any significant side effects: no flushing, burning, or jitters, and only a little bit of sweating. I felt better in the afternoon, so I took another capsule at about 5pm. With this one, I don't recall any side effects.
I took two capsules yesterday, one in the morning and one at 3pm. I experienced sweats and a little bit of jitters. This morning, I took one tablet and experienced the burning and flushing.
At this point, I feel like this product is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're going to get.
I am going to check my bf% on Tuesday and will post where I am. I am eager to see if there is a change.

Did you have any issues sleeping when you took one at 3 pm?
08-11-2014, 09:00 PM
No, I don't have any problems, at least not any more than I normally do. 3pm isn't really too bad because I generally don't get to bed before 1am anyway.

I checked by weight and body fat % yesterday. I weighed in at 177 and my body fat measured just over 17%. This is up from last week, but I'm guessing that this is either a fluke or normal fluctuation. I don't have a lot of confidence in the hand held body composition monitors that my gym uses. I am lowering my carbs this week and focusing a little more on cardio this week. I expect to see this number back down next week!
I also continue to have different reactions to the Phenadrol. The last two mornings I have had the flushing and burning sensation. This afternoon, I thought that the flushing might be due to the time of day, since I have only experienced it in the mornings. After taking another capsule at 3pm, however, I had a strong case of flushing and burning, so that theory is out the window.

I have zero confidence in the handheld devices or even the expensive machine that you stand on that is hooked up to a computer. I had my friend who is a great trainer,dietitian and competitior do my bf%. The next day I did the machine and handheld with a few buddies at another gym messing around and mine was 3% higher. Sad part is the leanest guy read 5 % which he is not and a comparable friend to me read higher than me which he is not. Calipers by the same person on a repeated basis are the only safe bet if you ask me.

The last several days, I have experienced only flushing and burning when taking Phenadrol. I thought I was past the sweats and jitters, until this afternoon. I still find it odd that I don't ever experience both side effects at the same time. I am contemplating taking both capsules in the morning next week, as the directions say, since I am getting used to the side effects. It will be interesting to see if I experience both flushing and jitters.
Today marks 7 months since I started my fitness journey. Here are a few pictures: the first few show the progress I've made since starting, the third is the progress in the last 2.5 weeks. I can see a small decrease in the size of my belly in this one. You can also see that I am a bit red in today's pictures. This is from the flushing: I took the pictures about 15 minutes after taking the Phenadrol. If Phenadrol will help keep me going in this direction, I will keep putting up with the various side-effects!

That is very strange that both are not noticed on a consistent basis. Keep going strong with your fitness journey and congrats on your first 7 months.

Yesterday, I started taking 2 capsules of Phenadrol in the morning before my breakfast. I was nervous about the intensity of the side-effects, but they weren't any worse than normal. I did, however, experience the flushing and then some sweats and jitters about an hour later. These were minor.
Today, I took the Phenadrol about an hour ago and only experienced a very slight tinge in my skin, but not anything like the flushing that usually occurs. I haven't had any sweats or jitters yet.
This morning I weighed in at 174. I am afraid that this might be due to my not being able to make it to the gym for a week. I've been dealing with an extra heavy workload and a physical ailment that has side-lined me for a few days. I hope to be back at it in a few days.

I've been pretty busy with work this last week, so I haven't had much of a chance to log. I have been taking 2 Phenadrol each morning for the last week and am still getting mixed side-effects. Wednesday, I didn't have any. Thursday, I sweated heavily for several hours. Friday, I flushed. This was very uncomfortable, because I got sunburned Thursday afternoon. Also, on Friday and Saturday, I focused on lifting heavy for the first time in a week. I struggled both days to complete my workouts because of my heart rate. I had to take frequent breaks to catch my breath and let my heart settle down. I haven't experienced this before, so I am assuming it was due to taking the two Phenadrol.

I bought some body fat calipers last week. I checked this morning and measured 15% at 175lbs. This was my original goal, but I'm not going to get too excited until I am measuring consistently below 15%.

Thanks, guys. 15% is definitely not the stopping point. It just means that it's time to set a new goal! 12% here I come!

I must have gotten two potent capsules today. I am flushed, jittery, sweating, and cold - the whole shebang. I'm having trouble working like this, so I hope it wears off soon.

So how long did the whole shebang last?
