**** EXCELL LOG**** by rysigpi
Got my EXCELL in today. For those that do not know what this product is, well, it is a BCAA type product with some bonuses.
For more info www.chemistrylabs.com
Price: $79.99Items Remaining:0
EXCELL, 2070g, 4.6 pounds 180 servings per 2 scoops (11.5g)
L-Leucine 3.5 g
L-Isoleucine 1.75 g
L-Valine 1.75 g
L-Glutamine 2.5 g
Vitamin B6 10 mg
Citrulline Malate 1 g
One serving is roughly 2 tablespoons.
Most will notice it is similar to Xtend but in a different flavor.
I just got done working out and took a couple servings right after as I picked my package up right after the gym.
-First impressions= THE TASTE IS FANTASTIC! I mixed up another serving to sit here and sip on and I just want to keep drinking it. IMHO, it tastes better than Xtend in the watermelon flavor. I never tried xtend in the grape flavor so I cannot comment.
So far so good .

On to the log!!
I will be megadosing EXCELL and comparing it to my experiences that I had with Xtend. I really liked Xtend so this should be kick ass.
-6 servings on workouts days, 3 sipped during workout and 3 more sipped throughout the day.
-5 servings on non-workout days.
Carb cycling diet, contest prep. Currently a little under 7 weeks out.
Currently doing a 2 days on, one day off routine utilizing a 4 days split of:
-Legs (quads, hams, glutes, calves)
-shoulders/ calves/ abs
(have been taking all of these except EXCELL for at least two weeks now.

You are indeed correct about the taste. At first I was thinking I would have to sacrifice taste for the great price. But when I got it I was blown away. Looking forward to your log, wish I wasn't testing right now so I could but oh well.

Cardio this mourning went by well. I added a serving to my liter of water and started sipping on it right when I woke up and then headed to the gym. Continued to sip on it during my 45 min cardio session.
Note: Having EXCELL in a clear container (I have a nice liter water bottle with a squirt spout) is a good conversation starter. Last night in class the cute girl behind me asked what it was

After about two days now I can say that my appetite has suppressed quite a bit. I am not as hungry in between meals. I did not notice this effect with Xtend, but I wasn't on a calorie deficient diet either.
So not as hungry any more with the feeling of starving myself

Increased vascularity has been noticed today. It was an off day as well so it wasn't a pump from the gym. I never knew that BCAA would have this sort of effect...cant complain though!
I like the fact that my "water" now tastes quite a bit better. Kinda nice to have some flavor for a change.

04-07-2006 08:58 AM
Im from Cadillac and will be there from MAy-thru August. I am going to school at Saginaw Valley right now!
04-07-2006 10:30 AM
Something I forgot to mention.... My teeth became somewhat sensitive Tuesday and Wednesday, not real sensitive, but just like how they feel against something cold. It went away thursday and none today either.
Another note- for all those that care....it seems my "unit" is more full when unerect and during my whole dieting deal, my libido has just dumped, but it is coming back some...food for thought.
Will update with my chest/tri/abs workout later.
04-07-2006 05:45 PM
-9 am on empty stomach
-45 min. on treadmill, 4 mph, 6-12% grade
Weights: @3 pm
-Weighted dips- 45 lbs- 13-10-9
-Barbell bench press, wide grip (no lockout, and bring to just above chest (dont touch chest)- 175 lbs- 6-6-5 (Its so hard, constant tension on the muscles with no lock out and not touching the chest, let alone after some heavy dips!)
-Decline close grip presses: 175- 7-4, 155-6 (pettered out)
-Incline barbell presses: 155-3 135-6-5 (Using same no lock out, constant tension scheme)
-Skulls: 65-12, 75-10-10
-D-bell flyes: 55's-12, 60's-10-8
-weighted crunches: 192-3x15
-20 min. walk on treadmill @ 3mph, 1% grade.
-Overall great workout, my pressing weights were way down with doing weighted dips first. I have also had to lighten the weights since incorpoting the "constant tension" type of style. There must be a proper name for the "CT". All I know is that before I incorporated the "CT" I was repping 215 for the same reps!!!

New pics @ 6 weeks, 1 day out from the contest. This lighting was different then in the other locker room. Bulbs were much brighter and go some funny glare goin...
Note: Im gonna call my lifting partner "shakes" from now on!! ahaha

Just a cardio day for me. I usually do cardio in the mourning on an empty stomach, but the fitness center here at college does not open till noon! So I did i went at 1pm.
-Sipped two servings of EXCELL throughout the cardio. I changed it up some; I hit up the eliptical cross trainer for 30 min. burning between 12-13 cals/min. Then hit the treadmill for 15 min. @ 4mph/ 8% grade.
I worked my legs thursday, and yesterday they were not that sore. Today they a quite a bit more sore, but it is different then usual. Its like a pump type soreness and it has been fading throughout today. Usually w/o the BCAA's, my legs are sore the day after the leg workout, then super sore the next day with me penguin walking up stairs...lol

Terrible gas today. No stomach discomfort at all, just nose discomfort. My diet has remained unchanged so it is weird I am getting gas now after 6 days of using EXCELL. Maybe just a weird day...

Reason: remeasured my waist......I just tried on a pair of jeans and they fell off me, so I thought I had to have measure wrong....I must have been too close to my hips.
