  1. Alpha Drive XL and Restore Review by BiO

    Just recieved my goodies today courtesy of BioScience, ALRI and Nutraplanet. Special thanks go out to all three companies both for the opportunity to test these products, as well as the usual speedy service given by Nutraplanet. Thanks for the T-shirt , Sam! I'll sport it with pride.

    Background; Been lifting on and off since age 16 with more serious, consistent, and refined training going on in the last 8. Have run about 10-12 PH cycles over the years and have used proper PCT for each generally consisting of Nolva.

    Completed my "hypothetical" 6 week PP/Halo cycle on July 24th and initiated PCT with only one week of Toremifene to kickstart, with the remainder being comprised of PGH, Rebound Reloaded, Activate and DHEA. DHEA was discontinued last week. Last RR and Activate dose taken last night at around midnight. PGH will not be used during this test.

    Things have gone well in this 3 weeks of PCT so far. Have lost only 3 pounds of mostly water, seem to be producing natural test well as evidenced by retention of gains, a slow climb in strength and some really terrible acne.

    Thus far, libido has been the biggest issue. I have very little to no libido despite tapering RR dose to one pill per day.

    I am hoping the Alpha Drive XL and Restore combo can bring back my sex drive, as well as to maintain or even augment my gains. I will be using a maintenance diet initially, as next week I am forced to travel for a family obligation. Upon return I will attempt a bulking diet/training to really put these products through their paces.

    Starting weight: 183
    BF: I'd guess about 12% at the moment. Abs still visible.

    Extra set in leg press is due to the fact I currently am recouping from a lumbar injury and cannot do squats and deads yet. Squat was around 235 prior to injury. Injured lumbar region last August trap-bar deadlifing 540 pounds with straps.

    Other lifts are incorporated and rotated in and out at will (calves, leg extensions, leg curls, et cetera), but this log will only report the cores.

  2. Should be a good one to follow. I will probably give some combination of these supps along with Jungle Warfare a try rather soon.

  3. Restore is an awesome product that gets my test goin like no other. I cant wait to see what its like stacked with alpha drive! Good luck bro and ill for sure be following!
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

  4. i am also interested in this stack as well
    good luck!!

  5. RR didnt really have a positive affect on my libido either. I was kinda worried because everyone claimed they got such a great boost, got some restore in, and BAM, walkin hornball! I was like now THIS is what im talkin bout. Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight. hahaha

  6. Following along

  7. Yep. Either it's my imagination or my testes They are also hanging lower.

    I'm scared because I have only taken two doses so far. lol

    Libido is indeed creeping back in. Definitely not 100%, but up a good 10%.

    I know, TMI, but it's important stuff..and I just like talking about my balls. Who doesn't?

    Tonight's workout went very well despite not getting as many calories as I would have liked to prior. I took the second dose of Alpha Drive and Restore with my preworkout shake.

    Focus was improved and I have had this experience before on higher grade Tribulus. Trib is indeed listed as a mild stim by many herb books. One would be wise to capitalize upon this fact..hint hint. Really helped with TUT style lifts. change from normal. stated earlier, my strength has been rising slowly before this test and tonight was no exception. Don't know if I can credit it to the new stack, but overall I think it may have had a positive effect..even if it was just from the increase in focus.

    Endurance..good, but no significant change.

    Chest and tricep day...

    Hammer Strength press
    TUT style
    180 x 8
    200 x 8
    First excercise..didn't feel real good or very strong as it was impinging shoulder. Switched to HS Iso Wide Press

    Hammer Strength Iso Wide Press
    TUT style
    180 x 10
    230 x 7
    250 x 6
    280 x 3..non-TUT max out.
    This felt much better and I decided to max out to see where I am at. Max strength was up for this excercise by 10 pounds and felt I could do more.

    bodyweight for 12 with slow negs on last 2
    bodyweight plus 35 x 8..all TUT
    Freakin ouch, but strength was about the same. I do not max on these anymore since a semi-pro looked at me with horror when he saw me dipping with 100 pounds strapped on.

    Since I was feeling saucey..

    Standing Military Overhead Press
    155 x 6
    Bad idea. Strength was good but endurance was poor. Kept it to one set

    V bar Tricept pulldown
    TUT style
    130 x 8
    145 x 7
    155 x 4
    155 x 4
    Oh the burn. Strength OK, but starting to fade out quickly.

    Lying DB pullovers
    55 x 8
    65 x 6

    DB flies..flat
    35 x 8
    35 x 7
    45 x 6
    Tired and very hot in gym today. Sweating more than normal.

    Finished up with machine assisted crunches and back extentions (bodyweight only)

    Overall good workout. Better than what I was anticipating given the circumstances.

    I am going to take the last dose for the day before bed..we will see if it interferes with sleep at all.

  8. Going to follow this log myself.

  9. Best of luck Bio!

  10. So far I like what I see! Good Log!

  11. No issues sleeping last night.

  12. So was i lieing Bio when i said that it kicks in quick? Hahah i was like WHOOAAAA holy moly! Props to both companies! hahaha

    Fo Rizzzeealll?!?!??

  14. Yes, I will say that something is happening already. It may be partly due to dropping the RR which was more than likely keeping my estrogen too low, but I think the Trib is kicking things up in terms of LH production.

  15. Tuesday was an "off" day. Did manual labor for some light cardio. Felt peachy all day.

  16. Also following along.

    Do you really think the tingling was the stack kicking in or was there something else going on. ose:

  17. Good luck with your log!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. It was just a low grade sensation in the nether regions...kind of an extra sensitivity. I have felt it before when using large doses of high grade trib. Nothing too amazing,however given the small amount of trib in the Alpha Drive, that's saying it must be rather potent.

    Today is leg day, will report back later.

  19. Great Log!
    I dont believe there is a one of us that doesn't appreciate you putting your balls on the line. Rock on Bio!

    :Balls said the Queen.. if I had two I'd be King"

  20. Leg Day

    There is nothing better than doing legs after working all day laying paverstones. That was sarchasm.

    Libido: about the same. Really seems to be trying to come back, but no real fire in the belly so far.

    Mood: The same which has been good throughout PCT. Focus was as good as last WO.

    basic 1 up, 2 sec down
    8 x 135
    8 x 205
    6 x 225
    3 x 245

    Despite the instability in my lower lumbar/sacrum, I decided to do squats for the first time in a couple months. Strength was still pretty good. Endurance was all over the place. First sets felt awful and confidence was not high. Back started aching right away.

    Leg Press
    TUT style
    495 x 6
    495 x 4
    405 x 6

    Much weaker from doing squats first. Have been doing 600-700. TUT style went OK. Big time burn.

    Calf Presses
    TUT style
    315 x 12
    315 x 8
    315 x 6
    315 x 5
    315 x 3

    Decided I needed to hammer the calves, they are lagging. Strength was good but the burn would shut me down quick with the tut style.

    Leg Curls
    TUT style
    130 X 10
    140 x 8
    160 x 5
    180 x 3

    Strength was really good for these sets. Legs pumped up very nicely.

    Then went to other back extension and hip flexor machines..nothing special to report there.

    Overall, good workout. Still feeling pumped and sore from last chest WO. This will be my last WO for one week. I'm travelling starting on Fri and should be back the weekend of the 18th and will post more then. I will continue to dose the stack the same even though my diet will be thrown out the window. I may get in one WO during this time.

  21. Off Day

    Not much to report. Very tired from last night's WO. Had to move bricks all day.

    Mood: Still good despite fatigue.

    Libido: too busy to tell. About the same.

    Energy: wicked tired all day. I was beyond supplemental help.

    Pump still holding well from last night's WO and even the WO before that. If I may say so, I am lookin swole. I do have a before pic that I will post later..after I set up a photobucket account or some such thing.

  22. WAKEUP!!!!!!!!!! ITS TIME FOR CARDIO!!!!!!!!!

  23. SUBSCRIBED! I'm very interested in your results from this stack, Restore is definitely on my list of sups to try.

  24. I'm wondering if i'm getting such a sexual side because of my complete lack thereof prior.

  25. Well, my flight back east was snuffed so I am leaving tomorrow instead. Still very tired from both the leg workout and the brick carrying/brick laying marathon yesterday.

    I am noticing what seems to be the begining of abdominal bloat, nothing major but not as defined as before. The change in PCT products may be to blame or it could be the calories I am hammering down.

    Muscles still hard and pumped. I am almost to the point of having some noticable vascularity despite my bf% being 10-12ish. Legs and arms are feeling hard and pumped and well, just plain anabolic. Seriously do feel almost like I am on cycle as was the case with the RR/Activate stack so that is good news.

    Libido: about the same. I suspect it was the RR and now the Restore keeping my estrogen too low. After another week I may request to titrate the dose of Restore down..and maybe up the Alpha Drive woohoo.

  26. If you get any urges to bake a cake or wear pantyhose CALL ME ASAP!!!!!!!

  27. Bio, great log so far. Was just wondering a few things...

    1. Are you taking the Alpha Drive and Restore together for each serving?

    2. What dosage are you using each product at?

    3. Are you taking any other supps such as CEE, etc?

    Looking forward to a great log!

  28. I take one pill of each Alpha Drive and Restore together with a meal, 3x per day. Sorry, should have specified that.

    Other supps are basically my normal vitamin/minerals and I do use about 3 grams of CEE preworkout, but not on off days. I am very used to these so any changes are due to the Alpha Drive and Restore.

  29. very good log so far i think i will be picking these 2 products up very soon!!
    i am with dagecko on when you take the dosages
    keep up the great work
  30. Question
