    Woke up dosed my supps waited 30 min ate breakfast and waited to lift.

    heart rate

    AM 70-75 bpm

    after 3 DCP 90-100bpm

    during training 140-150bpm (NO CARDIO)

    Now still 100 bpm

    After taking my initial dose of DCP/BERB (1/2hr) started to feel energized.Kind of like I wanted to smash something(ephedra like BUT without the shakes)

    Went into my gym and started to train-the weights felt light endurance was very good(never got winded and didnt feel fatigue until my last 3 of my final set of skull crushers.)Very impressed.

    Part way into the session the sweats started;BTW in my basement where my power rack and weights are its 60 degrees.It was a good sweat not profuse but very good none the less.

    Right now I feel very warm especially my face it feels wind burned. Im not sweating but I also work amongst racks of equiptment(air comditioning runs 24/7) and its only 65 degrees and Im in a t shirt.

    I feel very alert and clear but not euphoric.Im liking this combo.Ill take my body temp tomorrow if I remember.

    Tomorrow im upping my dose of DCP to 4X3 as Im jealous of the others who are disguistingly persperating while doing nothing.LOL

    SO IN A NUTSHELL
    strength is up.
    endurance is up
    motivation(agression) and energy are up.
    mental focus is up.
    body temp is up.
    BMR is up 20% +

    This ought to be able to do some damage to the fat stores in a short amount of time and pack on some lean mass.

    Just an update~didnt train today only took my supps.

    DCP-observations

    Energy up
    agression up
    clarity up
    Heart rate up
    Body temp has leveled out(still warm but not on fire

    On to the Berberine-

    Took my second dose here at work got side tracked and couldnt get any food into the gullet for almost an hour.Result the body wants to run through a wall=the brain wanted to shut off.Conclusion Hypo effects are very apparent and 5 minutes after eating my brain turned on.So its doing what its claimed to do!

    Also my muscles stayed full all day yesterday as opposed to 1or2 hours.

    DCP-observations

    Aggression up
    heart rate up
    body temp up
    energy/endurance up
    mood/ focus up

    Trained today in the aftrenoon as opposed to evening.Blew through the weight.Major jump in rack deads and jumped weight in all other lifts.Again I only started to fatigue on the last 3 of my last set of rope hammer curls but never got winded.Still very impressed!
    I really heat up when training on this stuff and for a few hours afterwards/far beyond what Im accostomed to.

    I did a little experiment last night and ate 3 DCP before bed on an empty stomach.DO NOT DO this!I slept verywell but when I awoke I had quite q tummy ache


    BERBERINE-observations

    Well Im still feeling full with no fatigue. Dosing 300mgX4 @8,1,6 and post.I took in enough carbs close enough to dosing timeas to not go hypo.Recovery seems to be good now lets just see how much fat gets traided for muscle!
    Earlier I posted I was going to shift my macros well sorry I realized thats unfair to the test and Ill just keep the protein up and eat whatever/whenever I want

    I just noticed something that the effects are enhanced when I take my fish oil caps 15min AFTER the DCP.Duh probably due to quicker absorbtion.

    Well this weekend will make or break it.I ate like there was no tomorrow.Christmas party food is fantastic!

    Dcp-observations

    Energy up
    focus up
    body temp up (warm but not scorching)
    agression good
    stamina good
    well being good

    The effects have remained virtually the same except for the first day when my body actually reactedto the RK.My workout was less than stellar but that was due to Saturdays gorge fest and a queezy stomach Sunday.Then they put me on daylight at work after 9 months on second shift.The combination of these factors was not condusive to upping my weight.

    I was still energetic and all but the muscles just werent firing right today.

    Berberine-observations

    Still feeling full after a crappy weight session.Im looking more full also so this may effect my weight on Wednesday.Hypo effects are less pronounced now but Ill up the dose to 500mg and not eat for an hour tomorow morning to see what happens.

    Thoughts so far - hte DCP must be burning some fat as Im warmer.Its unfortunate that Im not responding to The RK as the thermo effect gives you something more tangible to focus on.The berberine must be doing its job also as Im looking better.The recovery from Fridays session was back to normal status but I beat the crap out of myself in the gym that day.Things are going well hopefully by Weds Ill be into the swing of the new shift.Update then.

    Dcp-observations

    Energy up
    focus up
    body temp up (warm but not scorching)
    agression up
    stamina up
    well being up
    Heart rate 10-15% above at rest

    todays workout went great upped weight in all lifts and finished all reps strong except the last 2 of my final set.
    Things are still going well and Im liking this.There is no severe sweating at rest due to the fact that 1) I may be a poor candidate for RK 2)Ive upped my carbs as suggested for use of Berb.Still happy.

    Weight 225 down 1lb but Im looking leaner and Thicker

    Libido is fine which is always a severe concern for me because if the Mrs aint happy nobodys happy


    Berberine - observations

    Still feeling full for an extended period of time but Ive lost the hypo feeling.This is probably due to more carbs and more low GI carbs in my system.And possibly my insulin sensitivity is normalizing which would be good as my primary job is very sedintary and I was very carb sensitive.Ive not eaten clean by any stretch of the imagination and Im seeing visable progress.So this combo is working for recomp in a less than optimium environment thus the name Damage Control Protocol !This should help to dramatically change your body with a little discipline.Ive used NO discipline so far as to be fair to the name.
