Alpha Drive/Raw Test log
Bioscience Technolgies Alpha Drive stacked with Get Diesels Raw Test
This will be my first log ever, so any advice or comments will be appreciated.
This won't be a usual log. The reason I'm taking this stack is to try to increase my libido. You see, I'm closing in on 50 years old, and then throw in stress at work, long hours and little sleep, and suddenly I'm not as interested in sex anymore. And this does not make my wife very happy. I'd read several logs on the Alpha Drive/Restore combination and initially thought I would pursue that stack. But then, I noticed some people mentioning that they thought the Restore may have inhibited their libido. I didn't need for that to happen, so I was going to purchase just the Alpha Drive. But while reading some more information I saw some people recommending DHEA for those of us over 35, so I thought I'd try that also. I found Raw Test with 25 mg each of DHEA and Prednenolone, and since it was on sale, I ordered it along with the Alpha Drive.
Alpha Drive: 3 capsules daily with meals.
Raw Test: per the directions on the bottle, if stacking with a test booster, after 9 days take 2 capsules per day on a two day on, one day off schedule.
Weight: 320 lbs (yeah, I know, I need to cut big time)
Years training: 27
Training style: modified DoggCrapp
Cardio: 2-3 days per week, 30 minutes on stationary bike
Let me know if there's anything else you would like me to tell you about myself.

I started this on Monday, September 11th. I took one capsule of the Alpha Drive with three meals. Funny enough, my wife was asking me if I could feel anything yet. I wasn't expecting anything and didn't notice anything.
I think she misses my intimacy.
From what I read it should take about 2 weeks to build up my libido. I don't know if my wife can wait that long! lol

OK, this is weird. I'm starting to notice how hot the woman doing the weather is on TV. Not to mention the thoughts I'm having about my wife. Could the Alpha Drive be working this quick? Or, is it the placebo effect kicking in already?
All I know is I'm feeling a little extra horny tonight and my wife is digging it.

I'm still taking 3 capsules per day, 1 with each meal. I didn't notice the libido effects as much today. I did notice that I was a little more short tempered today. Some of the guys that work for me were slacking off a little and I got testy with them (pun intended!). It seems awfully early for me to feel any effects, but I guess it is possible. I am trying to be very wary of placebo effects.

Wow, nice log. It's cool to see you use DC training also. I've been training for what seems like forever and have tried many different styles of training. I wasn't real impressed with DC when I first read about it, but something told me to give it a try and I really like it. It seems to fit my recovery style real well.Originally Posted by Rage (SoCal)
The part about the improved sleep seemed good too until you started having the problems with your dreams! That seemed like it disturbed you a little. I don't usually remember my dreams so we'll see how it goes for me.
Thanks for the well wishes.

I just finished reading Rage (SoCal)'s log and decided mine would look a lot better if I added a little color to mine.
I also thought I should include what other supplements I have been taking as well, not that it's a whole lot.
- Whey protein
- BCAA drink
- 6 grams of fish oil
And that's it. Pretty simple right now.
I took 1 capsule of the Alpha Drive with 3 meals. I didn't notice a whole lot today, but it's still early. One thing I did notice is that I seem to be a lot more thirsty today. I normally drink around a gallon of water per day, but today I drank a gallon and a half and still was dry mouthed at times.

I did my usual dosing with the Alpha Drive today. It was pretty much the same as yesterday. I was thirsty all day long. My libido was slightly off, but is higher than it was before starting the Alpha Drive. My temperment was a little toward the grouchy side, but not too bad. I haven't been sleeping well for over a year now, and this hasn't changed so far on the Alpha Drive. I noticed that some of the testers reported deeper sleep while taking it. I'm hoping to experience the same.

OK some new things to report today. It's only been six days, but I am positive that I have lost an inch around my waist this week. I haven't changed my diet or workout routine at all, so that couldn't be it. Now, I know full well that one's weight can fluctuate during the day, let alone over 6 days, but this definetly feels like an actual decrease in size, not a fluctuation. I'm also noticing that the backs of my hands are looking more vascular. Hmm, more vascularity, dry mouth, rapid shrinking of the waistline, I think I'm shedding water! Wow, that took me too long to figure out.
The second thing I have to report is that the weird dreams may have started up. I had at least three dreams that I remembered from last night, which is unusual for me. I typically don't remember them at all. The strangest one started with my wife and I visiting Las Vegas, turned into a dream about my workplace and then my workplace shifted magically to Vegas, and then it wasn't my workplace, but a competitor, and they started accusing me of industrial espionage and then I was standing naked in a courtroom, etc., etc. Very strange indeed.
On the libido side things seem to be improving, my desire is up again for the wife.
09-17-2006, 06:23 PM
I took 2 of my 3 capsules so far. I'm really feeling dried out. The Alpha Drive is flushing water out of my system big time. My libido is high again today. I had wierd dreams again last night, really odd. The dreams seem to last for hours, but I'm sure they're probably only minutes long. Lots of detail, but they don't follow any logical progress. Things seem to almost morph during the dreams starting out as one thing, then becoming another.
But, this log is about my libido, not my dreams. As I mentioned my libido is up today. I'm noticing that I now have the desire, if not always the ability , to have sex twice in the same day. This is a major difference for me. Needless to say, my wife appreciates the effort. I'm even initiating foreplay, which was something she had to do before.

Day 8 has been pretty uneventful. I am noticing continued thirst and dryness. My cardio workout went well today. I seemed to coast through 30 minutes on the treadmill, even though I was walking at 3.6 mph (fast for me) most of the time. I worked up a good sweat though.
Libido still is slightly higher. No wierd dreams last night, but my sleep was crummy. I woke up several times during the night. I don't know if this is related to the Alpha Drive or not, I've had sleep problems for the last year or so.
09-19-2006, 10:43 PM
I took one capsule with three of my meals again today.
Things I am noticing:
- Mr. Happy is alive and well. Yay! Seriously, though, my libido is still showing signs of improvement
- I am still very thirsty, even though I am trying my best to get one and a half gallons of water in me each day
- My strength seems to be picking up at the gym
- My endurance seems a little better
I start adding in the Get Diesel Raw Test tomorrow on a two day on, one day off cycle. I'm not sure what to expect from this as I have no experience with DHEA products.
09-21-2006, 11:24 PM
Arrgh. I can't believe it. I missed a day on my log. And I promised myself I wouldn't do that. I ended up working 13 hours yesterday and was so beat when I got home that all I did was eat dinner and fall asleep. Working these long hours is part of what's killing my libido. I've worked close to 70 hours for the last two weeks. And I don't get paid overtime.
Anyways, I took one capsule of the Alpha Drive with my three largest meals. Today was my first day of adding in the Raw Test. I took this per the directions, taking one pill 20 minutes before lunch and a second one 20 minutes before dinner. I didn't feel any significant difference, but then again, I don't expect to on the first day.
My libido is still improving. I'm sort of having a different problem now. I want sex more, but all of a sudden I'm not lasting as long. I went from lasting 15 to 20 minutes to less than 5! I think I'm regressing to my teen years!
09-21-2006, 11:32 PM
I took one capsule of Alpha Drive with three of my meals and one tablet of Raw Test 20 minutes before lunch and dinner. According to the dosing plan I am following I will not take any Raw Test tomorrow and then get back to it on Saturday and Sunday.
I got off of work at a decent time today and made it to the gym. I'm noticing that my perceived level of effort is lower and my strength is up. I know that's slightly O/T for a log about libido, but I know that there may be one or two of you that want to know how this works from a bodybuilding perspective!
Libido is still where it was, a little above average. This is still an improvement for me, since I started out with a practically non-existant libido. The logs I read said they really noticed a boost in their libido around the two week mark, so a warning to my wife if she is reading this. Watch out next Monday night!

I took three capsules of the Alpha Drive today, one with three different meals. No Raw Test today, as it is cycled two days on, one day off. My libido seems to still be improving. My sleep has been good, with no wierd dreams. My mood seems to be fine too. I have noticed an edginess on some test boosters that I have used before, but not with the Alpha Drive.
09-23-2006, 10:35 PM
Today was three Alpha Drive and two Raw Test. I know it's still early, but I'm not noticing any kind of feeling from the Raw Test. But, then again, I'm not sure if I am supposed to. I have noticed a strong increase in my libido, though, so maybe I am noticing something.
The wierd dreams continued last night. Not bad, just odd, with lots of morphing and transitioning going on.
My mood continues to be fine. I have no noticeable side effects. I have a tendency toward acne. I thought this might be a problem, but fortunately, not so far.
09-24-2006, 08:45 PM
Today must have been the magic day. At exactly the two week mark my libido kicked into over drive! The wife and I had sex three times today and we might go for a fourth later! I'm feeling like I'm 16 again.
Those of you reading this that haven't experienced this yet, your libido going in the toilet can be a real buzz kill. It adds a lot of stress to your relationship and causes anxiety which just makes the matter worse. This has been a true miracle for me and I'm only on my second week.
09-25-2006, 07:21 PM
Nothing really new to report today. I took one Alpha Drive capsule with three of my meals. Today was an off day for the Raw Test. I had problems sleeping last night, waking up about every hour. I only got about 5 hours of total sleep. I still felt pretty good all day and even got in some cardio this afternoon. My blood sugar seemed to plummet about mid-morning, but I don't think that was due to the Alpha Drive. I ate a smaller than normal breakfast, so I'm guessing that was it.
09-27-2006, 09:54 PM
Today was an interesting day. I took one capsule of Alpha Drive with breakfast and one with lunch. I took my first tablet of Raw Test 20 minutes before lunch. Then, about mid-afternoon, I found my libido sky-rocketing. I started fantisizing all sorts of things I would do with my wife. I even had a full blown erection while driving home because I couldn't wait to see her. The bad part was I needed to stop and get gas or I wouldn't be able to make it home. All I could think was great, what are people going to think if they see me standing at the gas pump sporting wood? I could imagine them saying to themselves "Gee, I'm excited about how the gas prices have been dropping too, but that guy's carrying it a little too far!" I managed to calm myself down before I made it to the gas station, so I didn't have to worry about being arrested for being a pervert. Needless to say I was very happy when I made it home and got to stop fantasizing and start the real thing.

I took my ususal doses of Alpha Drive and Raw Test today. I am noticing that my strength is going up in the gym. A long time ago I used to do 6 sets of 6 reps with 275 lbs in the bench press. One time when I was really feeling my oats I did 8 reps with 315. I was pretty jazzed that day. I once did 405 for one rep without the spotter's help and I have doubled 365. I mention this because this all happened about 20 years ago. Since then I managed to injure both of my rotator cuffs and my right elbow and now I generally work out with only 225, sometimes 205 on a tough day. With the stack I've been taking though, I've made my way back up to 245 and I have hopes of getting a single rep with 275 someday soon. It's kind of a blow to your ego when you remember how strong you used to be and now you struggle with what used to be a warm up weight. I am really pleased that the stack is helping me out in this area.

Man, work is just killing me lately. I worked 14 hours on Thursday and 13 on Friday, so I haven't had a chance to update my log in two days. I'll catch up quick here and then off to the gym!
09-30-2006, 10:32 AM
No Raw Test today per the bottle's instructions. I took my Alpha Drive with my three main meals. My libido is still going well, my strength is still increasing, what can I say? I'm really liking this combination. It's great that this combination is good for both libido and bodybuilding. I was using some products before that were solely for sex performance, these provided no other benefits. To be honest I stopped taking some of them because of the side effects. I'm happy to say I'm not experiencing any negative sides with this combination.
09-30-2006, 10:36 AM
I took one capsule of the Alpha Drive with three of my meals. I took one tablet of Raw Test 20 minutes before my lunch and dinner.
I had problems with sleep again on Thursday night. But that may be more related to working 14 hours then to anything from the Drive/Test combination. I was so whipped today I had little libido and I couldn't drag my sorry butt to the gym. I hate when making a living interferes with my fun time!

I took my three Alpha Drive with my three main meals (1 capsule per meal). I took my Raw Test 20 minutes before my lunch and dinner. My libido is still doing OK. My strength is going up particularly in my pushing exercises, like bench press, DB overhead press, triceps pushdowns,etc. I don't seem to be progressing in my pulling exercises (back and bicep) as quickly. I'm not sure why this is. My theory is that since I have always been stronger on pushing rather than pulling exercises the test boost that I am getting may be amplifying my strength differences. I'll keep monitoring them to see what happens.

I took my three Alpha Drive today, but no Raw Test per the bottle's instructions. My sleep seemed better last night, but I had a strange sex dream starring Janice Dickinson, the cranky model from TV. It seems I had somehow agreed to star in a porn movie with her. Before any of you get too grossed out about her age, remember, I am 48. She's not too old for me.
Anyway, based on what I have read in a couple of other logs some people had even better results after increasing their dosage to 4 capsules per day. I have 27 capsules left of the Alpha Drive, so I've decided to start taking four a day beginning tomorrow. I'll continue taking the Raw Test per the bottle's directions. This will cut my log short two days, but I don't think that will make a huge difference.
10-02-2006, 09:18 PM
Today was day 1 of taking 4 Alpha Drive per day. I took 2 capsules with my breakfast and two more with my lunch. I took 2 tablets of the Raw Test, one each 20 minutes before my lunch and my dinner.
My libido is back up today, but it may be all in my mind. I'll be able to tell better after a few days at the higher dosage. I only did cardio at the gym today, so I have no data on how it affected my weight training. The cardio went well, I felt very full of energy. The session seemed to require less effort than normal.
10-05-2006, 10:18 PM
Wow, I start at 4 capsules of Alpha Drive and the wife and I are having so much sex I don't log for three days!
Well, I wish that were the excuse. Actually, work has been killing me. I feel like I'm going home early when i only work 12 hours anymore.
10-05-2006, 10:24 PM
I took 2 capsules of Alpha Drive with my breakfast and two more with my lunch. I took two tablets of Raw Test, each one 20 minutes before my lunch and dinner. Does anyone else think it's a little odd to call three of your meals breakfast lunch and dinner when you eat 6 times a day? I know breakfast is always the first meal of the day, but which one is lunch and which one is dinner? For anyone who cares, I call meal #3 lunch and meal #5 dinner.
My sex drive is still good today and my workouts are going well. I seem to be able to add reps, weight or both on all exercises everyday. If I can keep this up I'll be able to bench 800 lbs by next fall!
