Initial Impression (13/03/07):
I started with my first dose at 1.5 scoops. Thirty minutes before leaving to the gym, I drank a bottle of Green Mag combined with GlycerGrow. When I arrived at the gym, I began drinking my White Flood, and within five to ten minutes began noticing the effects mentioned below. I had my Purple Wraath pre-prepared and sipped on it throughout my workout. This routine seemed to be very effective, and unless a problem arises, will be doing this throughout my log.
Now before anyone freaks out, I am going to be experimenting with the ratio's of water to powder to try and achieve a better taste, as this could very well be the reason that the taste was unappealing to me. For interests sake, I added one and a half scoops to approximately 500 mL of water, which was warm by the time I drank it. To describe the taste, it almost was similar to vodka and lemonade, with too much vodka. Look for updates on this on future days.
With a few shakes of the water bottle, it was all seemingly dissolved. Upon completion of the drink, there was no visible solute at the bottom of the bottle.
I do not feel comfortable giving a number value here for a few reasons. Firstly, it was my first day so one cannot expect a whole lot as far as pumps go, and second I have not once experienced a pump on my back. With that said, I did have a pump doing deadlifts in my lower back.
- Effectiveness (Energy + Alertness): 10/10
I wanted to save the best for last, so make sure you read my comments below on endurance. I will say that I was feeling fairly tired just prior to going to the gym. Within minutes of taking the product during my stretching, I was no longer feeling any sense of being tired, and was very alert. This effect is very similar to what I had liked about NO Xplode. I am saving all of my extra comments for below, and in the future will be combining these two sub headings.
- Effectiveness (Endurance + Concentration): 10/10
I want to apologize as I know there might be some minors viewing this website, but holy @#$^ing $#!%. Seriously. For starters, I definitely feel the euphoria that had been previously mentioned. If I had to describe it, it was VERY similar to the happy feeling when you just finish smoking some weed, and look up to realize that you are very high, or at the point of drinking where you realize that you are starting to get a buzz. At least the feeling that I used to get. I started my workout with deadlifts, and immediately wanted to jump in to them. I felt like a wild animal attacking the weights. Upon completion of a set, it literally felt like I was ready to go again, and needed no time for recovery between sets. Any time I did take a few seconds in between sets was because I knew that while it may not feel like it, I should be taking a slight pause! This lasted throughout the entirety of my workout. I was a machine! Where it normally takes me an hour and a half for my complete back workout, I must have been done in under fourty-five minutes. For comparisons sake, when I took NO Xplode it alleviated any feeling of fatigue much like I mentioned above with White Flood, and while I did not directly feel an increase in energy, it did allow me to workout for longer periods of time with an elevated sense of concentration then if I were to be working out without it. This, with White Flood, was on a whole other level of energy... Let's see if it continues throughout the cycle.
I found that my grip for various exercises (deadlifts, lat pulldowns, close grip bent-over rows, etc) was weaker then I would have expected it to be. This could very
well be completely unrelated to this product, as I did feel very tired and fatigued before hitting the gym due to a lack of sleep the night before. I will comment further on this with my shrugs today, and next Tuesday's back workout. The only other comment was that I was drinking a LOAD
of water. I think I filled my 500 mL bottle up five times (if not four) on top of my bottle of Purple Wraath. What would you expect when you are exerting the kind of energy that this product allowed me to do, though? I also thought that it was producing a significant thermogenic effect, until I noticed other people commenting that the gym was very warm, and others fanning themselves with various items. It must have been all the energy I was emitting
. I will comment further on this as time progresses.
While it very well does deserve a ten based on my first days result, I am hesitant to do so. If the effect is still the same today, it will definitely be a ten. I also want to negate anything that wasn't related to the White Flood, based on it's consistency. I do not personally include the taste factor in this particular rating, as if a product is doing what I want it to do I personally wouldn't care if it tasted like cow manure. Stay tuned for yesterdays exercise breakdown!
