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


    Good evening to all!

    Ill keep this first post short and sweet as I'm headed to bed shortly, but-- lets get this party started.

    Id like to first give HPS and Azoth a major shout out and thank you for allowing me to be a logger for these two amazing products. I say they're amazing because-- YES i have had the opportunity to use them before. I was able to try Azoth 1.0 when it came out and now I am just excited to try the reformulated, GOLD standard of Nootropics, Azoth 2.0. As far as Glycoshield goes, well, @chedapalooza knows how much I love this stuff and this is why I am absolutely thrilled to show YOU guys exactly how special this GDA is. Enough of the A$$ kissing though, lets get down to the important stuff.

    Name: Ryan
    Occupation: PE teacher
    Age: 25
    Height: 5'11
    Weight: For the sake of this log, I was 237 this morning, however it fluctuates +/- 2lbs based on training, level of soreness, and food available to me.
    Years training: 12
    Calorie Intake: 2700-3200 per day (maintenance is 2600 and I have been losing weight....)
    Training split: Anywhere from 3-5 days per week. It really goes on feel, but you guys will see over the course of this log.

    Throughout this log you can expect to see:
    Certain Training vids/Workout loads
    Food Pictures
    Macro Calculations
    Body Pictures/Scale pictures (for verification of weight loss and gain)
    Cheat meals (yes i said food pics but I may cheat extra hard to prove how great this stuff is)
    Daily updates on Mental and Physical improvements.

    While logging I will be keeping other supplementation documented on here but for now, I know I will be taking
    Protein Powders
    Amino Acids
    Various Pre workouts
    Energy Drinks
    If there is anything else I will ensure to keep you guys updated.

    Right now my plan is in recomp mode. I don't necessarily have a goal in mind besides to get stronger and look good doing it. Ideally I would love to compete in a powerlifting meet towards the spring, but that is going to depend on how well training goes, how healthy I stay, and how my weight naturally changes. I am carrying about 16-19% BF right now and know that I could lose that and probably make a 198lb class but I don't want to lose all that strength while cutting. I've been down those roads before. I know Cheda and @Euclides products are going to take my training, focus, intensity, and body composition to a new level so I hope you stay tuned and come along for the ride.

    If you have any questions post them up, I like to converse with followers as much as possible as my plans, trainings, background, etc.
    Be Great.

  5. Afternoon fellas! Thanks for hanging out. You guys won稚 be disappointed! Today is an off day so no training, however I値l be posting meals and snacks from today. Tomorrow is a heavy deadlift day so I知 looking to hit 300g carbs. I知 headed out to a place tonight with the girlfriend that痴 known for its delicious low carb meals. I知 not sure what I知 getting yet but I may need some help calculating macros for the meal

    Anyhow, not using Azth today, I値l start tomorrow and I believe will be using every second or 3rd day depending on when I need a pick me up. I値l be foreshadowing the usage and I can give a brief review of how it effected me each day. I also plan on noting types of foods and stuff taken with it to help you guys figure out how it works best!

    I知 going to adjust the Glycshield dosing depending on how I知 feeling. But I値l be using anywhere from 4-10 caps daily. I will be using the protocol on the label, however if I don稚 get a good carb source and end up gains more sugars than I like, I tend to bump up a cap as you値l see today

    So far today I had:
    1 cap with 46g carbs (bagel)
    4 caps with lunch (134g carbs)


    That痴 where I知 at so far today. I値l make sure to include my dinner pics later on. Happy training today guys!
    Be Great.

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


    Good evening all, here to tie up the end of day one of this log. Had a pretty good night out, after dinner I went out with some family to a few bars in the Green Bay Area (I don稚 drink) but still just hung out and had a good time! Supper was....
    We had some complimentary bread rolls and butter, then I had wild breaded Alaskan cod with crusted and cheesed roasted purple and regular sweet potatoes and a cucumber 都alad with a sweet yogurt sauce.

    For desert (which I forgot to take a pic before I ate it) i shared a low carb chocolate fudge mousse with the gf with some fruit and whipped cream on top.
    2 caps were taken before all of this

    The place we went to is known for their low carb feature and I wish I壇 have taken a picture of what she had pancetta and bacon stuffed chicken breaded on a bed of truffle cauliflower risotto with a cream sauce and side of asparagus. Best $50 I致e spent in a while-

    Macros looked like this for the day- I estimated my last meal and I believe I知 still under my goal. I like to over estimate just in case.

    So far so good on day one. Have a heavy DL session in the morning and then I値l be moderate carb the rest of the day. Been having a little bloating issue as of late so may pick up some kombucha to aid in that. This morning as I may have mentioned, I was 240 right on the head, but tomorrow I feel I値l be down quite a few lbs.

    See y誕ll tomorrow!
    Be Great.

  7. Anyone waking up hungry right now? Bout to start this little Saturday off with a little cheat! Just popped two caps and diving in to these....

    40g fat
    70g carbs
    10h protein

    Thanks for stopping in fellas

    Started off this morning with my first 3-cap serving of Azoth and so I am excited to see how it goes! Have some breakfast pics to post up here when I get back to the gym-- Time to go deadlift!
    Be Great.

  11. Good evening! Here to post some food pics and I値l fill everyone in on my day and training later! We got a massive snow storm up here in Wisconsin so I am eating my second meal here about 12hrs after my first.. unfortunately I didn稚 have have a chance to prepare a second meal before I went to the gym, and driving to and from took 45minutes (usually 15) thank god I had some crockpot chicken at home!

    Breakfast was 5 servings of super Mario cereal with 2 scoops of iso-protein as milk
    -3caps of glycshield was used about 15 minutes before

    My second meal today was 16oz of chicken breast, 4 high fiber low carb tortillas and 140g of avocado with a kombucha.

    Meal three may just be ice cream who knows..... post about the day coming later! Azoth helped me break a small mental barrier today and I知 looking forward to filling you guys in on some future plans...
    Be Great.

  12. Well, i couldn't decide what to throw down for my last meal-- it was going to be a pint of cedar crest ice cream, but then i thought id be a bit more respectable to myself and have some protein to end the night. So Im finishing the night with a few scoops of protein and will post my macro totals here in a second.

    As far as my progress thus far. Today was a big stepping stone for me because it was the first time I hit 405x2 on deadlift's since mid summer. now that doesn't seem like a huge number or a big deal, however:
    Mid-September 2016 i had a really REALLY bad back injury, the worst injury I feel i've ever had. I was deadlifting on an Olympic lifting bar so there was lots of whip. I had 405 on for some routine triples (note: i've hit 500 beltless, and 465x5 belt-less before) and I was on my last set. First two went up pretty easily, 3rd one, for whatever reason, I must have had a mental lapse and didn't fully pull out the slack on the bar, and so on my way up, the bar had some whip on it and it pulled me forward, then i scraped the bar on my knees and as I went to correct my positioning there was a loud pop in my back. In fact my roommate at the time who was lifting with me asked if my Velcro harbringer belt had come undone and that's why I stopped. I was able to walk back to my house from the campus gym however once I laid down, I did not move for 3 days (luckily it was the weekend). It was probably the lowest point in my life because I was in so much pain, I was unable to get up to eat, drink, or do damn near anything. I had my roommates help me up when I had to use the bathroom, and they basically tended to me. I no longer had health insurance to even get things checked out because I had just completed my last year of collegiate eligibility and the university training room wouldn't see me. If my roommates weren't around I would literally order jimmy johns or some sort of takeout food, and tell them to "bring it to the back room" of my house because I couldn't get up. Talk about pathetic. Long story short, I stopped training for about a month and I was unable to squat the bar for about 3 months after. It took about 2 months for me to get my normal walking gait back, and about 4 months for me to be able to jog or run without any pain. Ill save the you the rest of the sob story but my road back to training heavy has been a long one and I have numerous imbalances, including now- Patellar Tracking Disorder in my left knee- which also had a pretty bad injury 6 years ago. I have busted my ass to get back to where I am, and I have a long way to go to get where I want to be- but the most important thing is... I'm getting **** done.

    I am 100% determined to be stronger than I have ever been, and make sure that I am healthier and staying healthy and injury free. Although I am only 25 years old I realize that I certainly cannot train the way I did when I was 18-22. I know that sounds sill and I am talking like an old man but I am determined to hit a 1500lb total at 220 by the summer.

    Anyhow back to the importance of today's lift. Hitting 405 or above for reps is a HUGE mental block for me, I feel that I am physically capable of hitting it, but mentally I am scared (as you will see in the upcoming video). Today was the first day since before my injury that I attacked a deadlifting session with aggression and initiative instead of being passive and letting "whatever numbers I hit be good enough". Although I have talked myself out of hitting goals in the past, I was able to make it through the workout with intensity and a positive outlook. Considering that this was my first day on Azoth 2.0 and I'm already pushing past some of the limits I set for myself-- Im extremely excited to see where the rest of this log brings me. If anyone has any other questions regarding past injuries or my road to getting to where I am, feel free to ask away, I don't mind answer them!

    Now back to the goods. I took the 3 Azoth 2.0 pills about 45 minutes pre-workout with some avocado (about 120g so 18g fat). I know that some racetam family nootropics are fat soluble and work well that way, some work better with a carbohydrate, some work great with nothing. I will more than likely be trying the product every time with some sort of food, however, I will be experimenting and trying to get you guys my opinions on the best way to take it.

    Not sure what is going on for the super bowl tomorrow but I am sure there will be some cheating and some cardio involved, but hey, who's really worried about tracking with this combo?
    Be Great.

  13. So here were the final macros


    If I can figure out embedding vids I値l post some training videos upcoming as well
    Be Great.

  14. Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone! Nothing exciting to report today besides the fact that I was a fatty and had a bit of a cheat. Got a weight of 241.6 tonight and definitely looking forward to morning weigh ins and the mirror damage. Ill make sure to post some pics and supplement usage tomorrow morning!
    Be Great.

  15. Well, hello stranger!
    If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
    I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

    Allllll sorts of dips and such!

    For whatever reason I wasn稚 as hungry as usual and I probably should have took a picture before everyone dug in but yeah it was a feast! I didn稚 bother tracking but woke up about .2lbs heavier than the day prior... pretty insane given the quantity of food I ate!

    Back to tracking and eating 塗ealthier today!! More posts to come tonight. It痴 a squat day so I知 hoping for a pretty solid workout, and staying on track with my squatting goals.

    Supplementation and macro/food pics coming tonight!
    Be Great.

    Good evening all! Had a pretty great training session but unfortunately I don稚 have anything exciting in the food department so that will have to wait!

    Tomorrow morning giving you some thoughts and goals with glycshield and Azoth!! I値l be on day 2 of azoth tomorrow and I壇 also like to share how my weight, mirror, training, and eating has been going on the log so far! Stay tuned.....
    Be Great.

  20. Good afternoon all! Checking in at lunch time to post a few details from yesterday and then at about 4 talk a little bit more about the stack and what I知 Experiencing so far. I like to do weekly wrap ups (even though it痴 Tuesday) because I started last Tuesday! I値l keep doing this through the entirety of the log and then obviously talk about my final thoughts at the end.

    I am CRAZY sore today and so today is an off day!

    As far as yesterday goes

    Here were my macros- I hit almost everything according to plan and ate fairly decent. My numbers are high and starting tomorrow I will be adjusting them a little bit. I feel this maintenance phase is doing great things for my strength and energy but it痴 time to start shaving off a little bit of the extra weight and ultimately get down to around 220 (which will take until after the log) Right now I am sitting at about 6 caps per day on average and 8 on weekends the best part about Glycshield is its ability as an 殿nytime nutrient partitioner, and although it works best before your meals, it is a great damage control supplement even when it is taken during or up to an hour after a meal.

    Right now I知 feeling that both of these supplements are playing a crucial role in my long term plan/goals and right now I DARE you to find a better GDA or Nootropic in the market. As funny as it sounds. I have noticed some synergistic effects between the two when I take them near the same time. You don稚 often hear about a GDA and Nootropic creating a ridiculous supplement stack, but these two might just be THE BEST OF THE BEST

    More details later but for now, here痴 the lunch spread!Name:  IMG_2054.jpg

    Be Great.

  21. Lets get into my Week 1 Review


    So basically here is what I have thought about each supplement and what I have tested. Also what I can foresee myself doing in the future.

    Glycoshield: Where can I start. This stuff is capped gold. Despite me being in a caloric surplus and having multiple cheats, I am still about 2lbs down from where i started. (sitting at about 236 on a normal morning). At between 6-8 caps per day, this stuff utilize carbs like no other, whether you're training, or just needing something to reduce bloating, fullness and move those nutrients where they need to go. There has been times where I force fed myself over 200g of carbs at lunch, (not sugar loading) and with 4 caps and less than 2 hours later, I was feeling completely normal and almost even hungry again! Although I generally don't train for a pump, I cant help but try to go a little harder on my accessories, not just because I want to get a pump, but because my work capacity has seemed to increase with Glycoshield. Sets, reps, and total volume has increased while my rest time and fatigue has lessened. The nutrient shuttling properties are so crazy that it can effect me in and out of the gym regardless of when I use them. My goal with Glycoshield for the upcoming week- I am going to be a little bit more aggressive with the dosing and carbs, while also reducing my calories by 100. Rather than 2900 Im aiming for 2800 but my percentages of carbs/pro/fat will still stay at 45/35/20.
    I will be pushing to have at least one cap with any meal or snack containing carbs and will be shooting for possibly 8 caps per day. I plan on cheating less and hitting my macros without the use of a pint of ice cream every day and I am going to see where this takes me. Surely in the right direction


    As for Week 1 of the new Azoth 2.0... Man I love this stuff. For those who have tried nootropics, you know how great they can be. You feel motivated, happy, carefree and stress free, not a worry in the world, like you can take on anything, you're a joy to be around and you make others joyful just by being near. This stuff has been doing that, and more. Azoth seems like it has given me more confidence, GOOD aggression in the weight room (as I mentioned above about hitting mental blocks) and this type of swagger that someone like me normally wouldn't have. If there is one aspect of this product that I have never seen before in another nootropic, it is that this sh*t lasts forever. I have so far used 6 caps over the course of two different days, and I took them either with a carb meal, or a fattier meal. With the fattier meal it was an avocado and some water and no GDA. I felt that taking it this hit me a little bit harder than the carb meal did. Now, this may have been because the meal was also smaller, so I am still going to experiment inn order to find the perfect way to take Azoth. The carbohydrate meal was some rice cakes and granola for about 75g of carbs with Glycoshield. This did not hit me as quick but the effects lasted just as long. Now when I say this stuff lasts forever, I usually take them before my first "meal" of the day, which is before 7am and school, and by the time I am finished at the gym (6pm) I still have that confident, take on the world, motivated attitude that helps me get sh*t done at home. Obviously this product can reach so many people on so many levels but I literally hated meal prepping at night, and although that may make me same lazy and like I don't want to be prepared, we have all been there. Azoth is literally the kick in the as$ that you need to get up and get moving. The energy and heightened mood is jitter free and doesn't come on too strong.
    As someone who has tried the original Azoth and now trying 2.0 I cannot believe how much better 2.0 is (which is saying a lot because i LOVED the original!) Honestly, for those who may be stopping in and reading this, if you didn't try to get in on the promotion, you're probably the type of person that NEEDS Azoth in your life because you're not thinking straight. I cannot wait to experiment with this further and test how it works near and around pre workout meals as well as being used like a pre workout!


    Now for something that I wanted to quickly mention before you guys get sick of reading. These two work extremely well when taken close together. when I dosed this just after taking my Glycoshield, about 30minutes before my carb meal, I wasn't expecting anything to noticeable, but it certainly was. While the effects of Azoth didn't hit me as quickly, they did hit me stronger than just with the fattier meal. I'm going to assume there is some correlation between the Nutrient shuttling effects of Glycoshield and the rate at which Azoth gets to where it needs to go. I would recommend for those trying this stack to take them the way I did with the carb meal and see if the effects are just as profound as they were with me.

    With all that being said, I am going to throw up my macros for the evening, do a little quad rolling and hit the hay. Trying to recover and sleep more than 6.5 hours per night. I am starting to think that @chedapalooza and @Euclides need to team up and make a sleep supplement if they continue dropping Staples like these.....
    Be Great.

    Thanks boss! And you池e telling me! I just think how much greater my day would be if I could get another 1-2hrs.....

    Anyway! I totally forgot to post my macros from yesterday so here they are!!Name:  IMG_2058.jpg

    Actually ended up lower than what I wanted but it isn稚 a huge deal to me. Weight is still pretty steady. Gunning for perfect macros everyday is tough but his 100 calorie reduction shouldn稚 be too significant yet. Today, I am a little lower on my carbs than I壇 like at this point and so, with about 100 left I haven稚 decided what route to take. I feel that posting a previous day痴 highlights will be easier to do and so I will post all of today痴 info tomorrow!

    As far as training went today I hit a relatively easy paused bench PR at 305. I致e hit 345 touch and go/bounce in the last but I really want to focus on my pause maxes now that I am emphasizing powerlifting. It痴 a somewhat 泥eload week but I知 still hitting my progressive top singles on this program. I知 working right now on increasing work capacity on my compound lifts because honestly it seems like I get my ass kicked on my paused bench. While I知 emphasizing pauses still making sure that I can be explosive and have good mind muscle connection: something Azoth is REALLY helping me achieve right now.

    More thoughts, macros, and food pics coming tomorrow!!
    Be Great.

  24. just wanted to stop in and say great log! love all the detail and thoughtfulness, really helps to understand your thoughts/feelings.

    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!

    Thanks for stopping in brother- I appreciate the kind words! Sounds like life is hectic as ever with you. I know how you feel about stims and preworkout products. 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 I壇 have a coffee here and there. I definitely respect your attempt at weening off a stims- I don稚 think people understand how important it is to let your adrenals chill without being hyped up all the time.

    I知 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 that痴 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. You値l be back and hitting it hard soon.

    As far as getting into this stack goes. I壇 recommend it to anyway. Glycshield works as damage control on cheats, even if you池e more on the keto side. I致e 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 you池e 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.
    Be Great.
