iThrow outsmarts and out eats the competition: Glycoshield and Azoth Dual Log!

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Hey all, of course after I mention going and dropping my macros yesterday, I go over by that crucial 100.... what a joke right? Well anyway training was outstanding and I felt realllllllly in tune yesterday with Azoth and GlycÝshield. Here was the macro breakdown Name:  IMG_2066.jpg

    So the GlycÝshield usage likes like this
    1 cap with a bagel/coffee at 7am (52g carbs)

    3 caps with lunch at 11:30 (about 140g carbs)

    1 cap pre workout with a rockstar juices energy drink (52g carbs)

    3 caps before bed with 3 servings Oreo cereal and milk (about 95g carbs)

    So at the end of the day yesterday I was 241.8

    I woke up at 237 today. Took a stomach picture because I woke up feeling flatter than normal and I want to use this as a baseline. More pics to come HOPEFULLY. Feeling fluffy but Iím okay with that because I can guarantee by the end of this log Iím seeing the low end of 230... not to mention my maintenance BMR before workouts is ~2350-2450. Time to get leaner and more focused than ever. Iím wanting this change like crazy. Letís get after jt

  2. Good afternoon crew. Yesterday was a good day off although I did not get very good sleep last night. Name:  IMG_2070.jpg
Views: 47
Size:  124.3 KB macros for yesterday werenít tooooooo out of the ordinary but slightly lower than expected. Iím still good with where I am at.
    If anyone is interested, hereís what my macro breakdown looks like, generally everydayName:  IMG_2071.jpg
Views: 47
Size:  120.3 KB. If youíd like to know more about what food I eat I can certainly post that up as well.

    It appears I am coming down with some sort of
    Cold type symptoms (hoping not the flu thatís sweeping across the Green Bay Area). And so Iíve decided to take today off of training as well. That also means no Azoth today because I donít feel like wasting 3 caps of my
    Goal is rest. Macros for today will more than likely be lower than usual because I just donít feel hungry. I am still going to try my best to hit the protein goal but we will see what everything else looks like.

    On the plus side, yesterday I tried poke for the first time from a local grocer. It was a spicy tuna poke and I couldnít find the macros for it of course so I had to guesstimate. It was about a half lb. ik tuna is relatively lean and I canít imagine the sauce was very fatty so I went with a my fitness pal estimate.Name:  IMG_2072.jpg

    Still at 8 caps per day but today may drop a little lower. Hoping some good rest and relax time tonight will get me some good sleep and Iíll be all set for a couple good training sessions this weekend. Be on the lookout for a big cheat meal Sunday. Small family reunion is going down at a local bar/restaurant type place and they have the best fried stuff EVER!

    Stay tuned in case I actually hit up some cardio tonight.
    Be Great.

    I've been looking to jump on this stack. I am a full time student, work and have a wife and 4 kids. Needless to say it is hard to stay focused on getting things done. I want to get away from taking some many stims (although I do love the new hyde power potions) and I really want to get away from the crazy new stims preworkout. Not that I have had any issues with them, but for my own piece of mind, I went to get away. I have been toying with the idea of taking a noot type product preworkout instead of a stim bomb like I have been.

    I have had a similar injury to you, I was doing deficit deadlifts, beltless and everything was great until one rep, on my way up I felt a pop in my lower back near the SI joint and was in pain. I experienced everything you described and it sucks. I have slowly started squatting again and just doing rack pulls, as I am still afraid to do a full deadlift.

    Anyways, sorry for the long post. I am really looking forward to more feedback on Glycoshield and Azoth! I am actually shifting to a lower carb, higher fat diet, but I believe Glycoshield can still benefit. Thanks brother and keep up the great work!
    I only consume about 30g of carbs per day and use 1-4 capsules of glyco. With that usage a bottle will last a very long time since itís 180caps and is a great value. Standard usage at 6 Caps daily is still a full month supply. Value! For higher fat diets Iíd also suggest considering our LipÝshield.. in simplest terms, itís GlycÝshield for dietary fats instead of carbs

    Good morning and happy Sunday all! This flu/cold/sickness is really kicking my ass. I havenít
    Trained since Wednesday and will probably not train today. My sleep patterns are alllll sorts of effed up and combining that with working with kids, it was bound to Happen eventually macros for the last two days have been rough too, Iíve kinda ate when
    I could but havenít hit macros the way Iíd like to. I decided not to use Azoth the last 3 days and also decided that I would only use GlycÝshield when I knew Iíd have a big carb meal. So far things have been okay. Here are some highlights from the last two daysName:  IMG_2078.jpg

    As you can tell, I havenít ate really well the last few days and so today, we have a little get together at this bar/supper club and Iím going to TRY to have a cheat day is the stomach can hold up. I wonít really track much and worry about it but I will certainly take estimates and attempt to come up with a macro estimate at the end of the day.

    Yesterday did not help this sickness as I was outside in under 10 degree whether all day trying to help my mom Move all of her stuff and all of our old stuff to a new storage facility. After 3 Times moving, my mom stepdad hadnít unpacked anything because of getting older so it was a massive clean up, lots of random stuff. Now that heís passed weíre helping her get life together and move her closer to family/set her up with a house and job, so lots going on behind the scenes right now! I think it may have furthered my cold a bit

    Anyhow. Hopefully will be able to provide some delicious messy foods today! Happy cheating!
    Be Great.

As someone who just graduated college, I used to be downing two sugar free energy drinks per day, and on top of that I was also taking a pre workout product and occasionally Iíd have a coffee here and there. I definitely respect your attempt at weening off a stims- I donít think people understand how important it is to let your adrenals chill without being hyped up all the time.

    Iím wishing you the best on your road to recovery. Keep grinding away and make sure you spend time doing mobility work and fixing imbalances, I think thatís one of the biggest things that I neglected before the injury and that definitely helped me when I started coming back. In a way, it was a blessing in disguise because I take warming up, stretching, and facial release work more serious. Just crushing a muscle or rolling It and stretching a little bit everyday is huge. Youíll be back and hitting it hard soon.

    As far as getting into this stack goes. Iíd recommend it to anyway. GlycÝshield works as damage control on cheats, even if youíre more on the keto side. Iíve used it at night even with no carbs after my last meal and have woken up bloat free and feeling leaner. You may be out with family at a restaurant and rather than being limited on ordering you can eat normal, and still have a relatively normal blood sugar.

    With Azoth 2.0, the Teacrine makes all the difference in the world. It really gets your ass moving without feeling like youíre actually caffeinated. Motivation, focus, a sense of well being, memory improvement, happiness, drive, etc etc I could go on. The original Azoth was great but 2.0 is without a doubt the new standard of Nootrtopics.
    Appreciate the words or encouragement! I know all about mobility and imbalances. I focus a lot on mobility and movement preparation, which made me even more mad when the injury occurred. My gym buddies were just as shocked when I told them I got hurt, as they noted my dedication to properly warming up. But nevertheless, here I am. I am slowly making my way back and I totally agree with you on the blessing in disguise. It made me more aware and in tune with my body and weaknesses/imbalances, so I am more focused on correcting those issues.

    I actually started taking some Gamer Up from Controlled Labs as a preworkout and its been great! I am really liking the Noots preworkout, instead of a stim bomb. I really need to check out Azoth!

    30 grams of carbs? Thats really low! I just shifted to a low carb, higher fat diet and its been ok. Went to a party last night and caved in and ate chips and cake....Still trying to get used to low carbs. I am slowly trying to lower them, as right now I set a limit of 100 or less per day.

  8. That honey pecan chicken looks awesome to me!

    Definitely brother, we got to look out for each other all the time. Hopefully you get a log going so more people can keep up with your comeback! As far as the noot's definitely a pre-workout gamechanger. Without a doubt I have hit some of my best lifts and had my best sessions when combing nootropics with my pre's or just alone. And if you're slowly approaching keto, having Glycoshield and even Liposhield along for the ride on those cheat days makes a world of difference... It's insane what they can do.

  10. Well since my appetite has been poor lately i took advantage of my weekend off to just rest relax and have a major cheat today. In total I used 10 GlycÝshield caps and Iím certain coming back to training tomorrow will be glorious. Especially since I can now use the horizontal machine leg press as a good quad accessory for squats. So sit back and enjoy the pics Name:  IMG_2087.jpg

    Final macros.

    Letís see what tomorrow brings. Looking forward to sleeping like a baby tonight and getting over this cold
    Be Great.

  11. Good evening all, had a bit of a scary mishap tonight and so I'm going to post more tomorrow when I have access to a computer and I'm not just typing on my phone. Long story short, a family member spray painted some doors and such in the basement (my room) without any ventilation and when I got home from the gym, I went down, changed, laid on my bed and actually passed out from lightheaded-ness. Luckily I woke up to some fans and such blowing air around down here and a bunch of spray but it was scary for a while. i am all good now, just trying to get some fresh air and food. Tracked my macros most of the day but didnt do a good job tonight since im just trying to eat what I can. Will update more tomorrow!
    Be Great.

  12. Good evening all, so as you may know I have been sick the last few days, well almost a week, with a cold and some flu like symptoms. I have been fighting it the best I can and so training and nutrition has really been off. As of today I am officially back to tracking and will be getting back on track so that I can finish the log off strong since I have some goals to hit! My training session yesterday was nothing to write home about but then again I was pretty out of it. Today I had an off day and my appetite was extremely poor during the day. I somehow managed to spark an appetite and so tonight I ate a bunch of burgers, jalapeno poppers, hot dogs, brats, etc. and at least got little bit of my appetite back. Starting tomorrow, I am back on the tracking train and will get back to regularly scheduled supplementation.

    Just wanted to give an update of where I am at and how I am feeling. I am now dropping my calories to 2650/day and will try to get all of them from DECENT food. That means no more pre-bed ice cream to hit carb goals, and scoops of peanut butter. Im going to be including more kombucha, sprouts, micro greens, shakes, fruits and veggies into my diet since I really tend to neglect those. Lets make tomorrow the start of a big turn around in how I am feeling!
    Be Great.

  13. MAN OH MAN WE ARE BACK IN THIS LOG FOR GOOD FOLKS!!
    Huge apologies for being M.I.A last week and over the weekend however it may have been necessary in order get over this sickness I had. It turns out that I did not have the flu, rather, I had a sinus infection that turned into an ear infection which is why I was having balance trouble and issues with dizziness. I only was able to get one training session in since my last post and it happened to be yesterday! I need to figure out how to get vids up here because I managed a 405x3 which was my comeback rep PR after my back injury!! I gotta say, it probably would not have been possible to do this without Azoth and Glyco having my back (literally)!

    Supplementation started up again yesterday and I am back at 2650 cal meaning Iíll be hitting about 297g carbs 231g protein and 60g fat. I donít think Iíll lower too much more to ensure I am getting the most out of my training but this is my plan until I start to see diminishing performance!

    Hereís my last cheat meal Iím going to have for a few weeks, ate it last night in honor of that 405x3 deadlift!
    Itís a captain burger with seasoned fries
    Captain burger =toasted bun, hamburger, brat patty,w slices cheese, slice of butter, pickles, horseradish sauce, ketchup, and (they forgot the onions but oh well). Best part about this cheat meal was it cost $7 at a little hole in the wall place....


    Back to good ol chicken wraps and yogurt from now on

    Let start things off right again.
    Be Great.

  14. Good evening all, we are back and on track the way things should be! Had a great lifting session today after taking the day off yesterday because i noticed my heart rate was pretty elevated, I was sore like crazy and hadn't quite eaten the right foods. I had a total of 5 sessions last week and although they weren't all extremely high intensity, I feel that they got me a bit!

    Glycoshield and Azoth are being dosed consistently now with Azoth being dosed on my lifting days and I am currently down to 6 caps of Glycoshield per day on about 300g of carbs. I will post yesterdays macros here in a second but I wanted to note some things starting week 3:

    First things first its Tuesday so we usually lower the calories here but we are sticking roughly at 2650 because last week was just a mess. I want to get back on track first

    2nd: I noticed my work capacity has increased much more than expected with these two products. What I mean is I am decreasing rest times further on my sets even with the calories slightly lower and weights being a little higher. My focus and tunnel vision intensity has been really solid and I feel that when I use Azoth, everything else that I am taking seems to be amplified. My hunger shoots through the rough combined with Glycoshield but the pump I have been getting even when I am not training for it is fantastic. Work capacity further increases, I am not out of breath and I am feeling great! I will also be adding some cardio in the form of Rowing for speed and times or walking on a the treadmill. I got the brilliant idea to become more athletic after a dose of Azoth left me feeling like I am cheating myself by only doing weights and mobility stuff. time to get back to what I once was and be better than ever!

    3rd- my left pec tendon has been giving me trouble, especially after last week's 310lb paused bench PR. My left pec is not as mobile or flexible as my right and there are muscle imbalances from years of being a thrower in track and field. Obviously you only throw with one side of your body so that side gets stretched and worked more. Now that i am trying to get rid of these imbalances i have more aches and pains and my left pec is a big part of that. Once it settles down, I am considering getting a deep tissue massage to open it up and to just get some blood flowing through there and hopefully a some breakdown of the balled up stuff going on there.

    4th- I am about half way through the bottle of Glyco and so I am going to make sure that i stay around 6-8 caps per day for the remainder of the log. i am also going to try my best to hit my macros or come close every single day and not cheat. That also means no more cheat meals on weekends but we will see if I can slip some healthy cheats in there for the time being..
    5th I am ready to crush the rest of the week so lets get after it and make bigger improvements daily.

    I am loving this stack and the combo of a GDA and nootropic energizer is still something I think everybody needs to try.. This is the gold standard of stacks right now!
    Be Great.
