PowerFull & Cissus RX thoughts by BC
I just wanted to post up my thoughts on USP Labs Powerfull and Cissus, and althought I have only been taking them for three days, I thought I'd start a thread I could add to as time went by. I bought 2 bottles of each, so I should be set for a little over a month. I started on this past Saturday (March 4th). I want to warn you all right now, in the future this thread will be updated with useful feedback, but as of right now you are going to hear how after 3 days on this stuff I don't have too much to say because I have had some really ****ty workouts (not because of the supps, just bad luck). For the straight to the point details skip to the summary at the bottom if you like:
When I took them Saturday night I started to feel a warm sensation in my arms, and noticed they were pumped and I hadn't even arrived at the gym yet (this was 20min after dosage). I was pretty excited, but I decided to take my gf along and right before we got there she sprung it on me that she wanted to play raquetteball BEFORE I lifted. I knew it was a bad idea, but I never oblige such requests so I thought I'd be nice for once. An hour later I finally had time to train my legs. Yup, they were already pretty tired. Workout was ****ty, basically my own fault.
Sunday I took the doses but that was a day off from lifting, I went to Disneyland all day.
Monday (today) was absolute ****. Here's why: I was hurrying to get to the gym before too late but I hadn't eaten in almost 2.5 hours, so I made the DUMB mistake of eating a can of chili, a bagel right before leaving. I made it worse by washing this down with tons of water, and finally a creatine ****tail, with my doses of PowerFull & Cissus RX. I felt very full / bloated, but not sick yet. Luckily I had to make a few stops first, so by the time I got to the gym about 45min had passed. I thought it was a enough time for my stomach to settle, but I was wrong. It was chest day and all my lifts were going ****ty, I was struggling to keep up with what I had lifted last week. Then my stomach started hurting 40min into my workout. I tried sitting down for a few min, still was not right. I drive home and lay down for about 30min. I wake up and just think "oh ****" and I steamroller through obstacles in my place to get to the bathroom. I think you know what happened next, and honestly if I decided to gross you all out further and elaborate you just would not believe me. I'm still kind of in shock. The thing is during this time I started seeing double vision, and when I took that nap when I got home I was having tons of crazy rapid dreams. I know all the food was an issue in making me feel so sick, but I am wondering if I had some sort of reaction with the supps?
What I have noticed so far: Pumps / warm sensation in arms shortly after dosage. Pain from pelvic bone inflammation is signifigantly reduced, probably from Cissus! I am very pleased with that, and hopefully in the next week or so I will start feeling some anabolic effects.
What I am hoping for: I mainly bought this stack for two reasons. To heal up an injury I have, which it seems to be helping with (See above), and to increase my strength.

Important update -- If you read about my Monday above you know that I got very sick during my workout. I thought I maybe just ate too much too quickly right before the gym, but I made that post a little after 1am local time, and it is now almost 12pm Tuesday. I spent the entire night pukking my guts out, probably got two hours of sleep and was not able to hold down ANY medicine. Until I figure out wtf went wrong I will probably be taking a break from taking any supps or normal foods. I can't even hold down some Cambells Chicken Noodle soup :-(

I'm trying to eat something but my body seems to reject just about everything. I've tried sipping on some carbonated beverages and that seems to be the only think I will not throw up. I thought something lite like toast would be ok, but that too was only in my stomach for a few min. Any suggestions?

OJ mixed with ginger ale... thats what my momma gave me as a boy. Um, ritz crackers. Throwing up messes with your sodium levels too, might wanna try and stomach some Ritz Crackers....
Thats all I got ta say... sorry broham, feel better!
