    Kixazz's Aethletic Edge IntaXcell/Steel Edge log


    Hey Everyone....This will be my first log ever.
    I have been around here and the BB.com forum for a long time mostly just reading and learning as much as i can, much more than posting.

    I have been chosen to test Athletic Edge Nutrition's IntraXcell/Steel Edge combo for 30 days and will be posting my results and feedback daily.

    OVERVIEW: In August I was 190 even with a little more than 5% bodyfat. After the season and taking some time off to finally give my body a rest i fell all the way down to 175 and am now working my way back up. I would say right now I am about 180 probably a little less but will have the exact weight soon. My goal during this log is to over the get back up to 190 and get most if not all of my strength back.

    DIET: Umm, I have never been to strict of a dieter, but am going to give it a good shot as I feel it will only help in my goals(clean bulk). I am gonna aim for about 4-5 meals a day. While I am still figuring out the specifics of it, I know that it will encompass most of the following(tweaked a little day in and day out): Oatmeal, Eggs, Chicken, Tuna, Brown Rice, Water....the basics of a good diet i guess you can say. I hope to be more in depth with each daily log as to my diet(but will definately be concentrating more on my lifts and charting them.

    LIFT: I am leaning toward more of a Bodybuilding workout with some Olympic/Football Lifts thrown in(4 days a week). I have attached a file which is pretty much what my lift will be. Some reps will change and will switch up an exercise or two week to week. But that is pretty much it. (Please view the attached file).
    My cardio will consist of about 30 min a day of Biking, Running, and or Swimming, as well as some football and basketball games thrown in. I'd say my cardio will go about 4 days a week on average, but will taper back if need be as I would like to go for a clean bulk.

    SUPPLEMENTS: Athletic Edge Nutrition IntraXcell/SteelEdge, Multi Vitamin(daily), Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey(postworkout and throughout day), and Cytosport Muscle Milk(night and/or morning dpeending on lift and soreness), Glucosamine(daily).




    I will have exact weight up Monday and hopefully some pics then as well.
    The log will officially begin as soon as I receive the products.

    Impressive layout, especially considering this is your first log.

    I'll surely be following along.

    Day 1


    Ok....today is the first day of my log! Took IntraXcell and SteelEdge today preworkout and then SteelEdge postworkout. I expect to be taking SteelEdge 3x a week(M/T/W). I have taken NoXplode and ephedrine before and must say i was impressed with how ready to go i was. I had alot of energy and just wanted to lift set after set in the beginning of my workout.
    The pump though was not as noticeable as NoXplode or a stronger NO Product, but today was only chest/tris and i normally dont get the best pumps on a day like today.
    I did however on Thursday try just the IntraXcell before my back and bis workout and the vascularity was definately noticable! felt a pump but not strongest ive ever had. I think part of it is that a)just started taking it and b)im still very sore and slowly getting my weights back, so the soreness was more noticeable than the pump.
    Also just a quick note....when taking IntraXcell i did feel the tingling feeling...not too strong but definately felt it all over. It wasnt bothersome at all and an effect that I don't feel would bother anyone and definately will not affect your lifts in a negative way.(just in case anyone was worried about it)

    Week 1
    8 8 6 2 2
    Bench 185 185 205 225 225
    8 8 6
    DB Incline 60 75 80
    8 8 8
    Fly 35 35 35
    8 8 8
    Incline Fly 30 30 30
    8 8 5
    Skull Crushers 95 95 95
    Close Grip(EZ) 95 95x5
    8 8 8
    Pushdowns 60 60 60
    Nautilus Pullover 155 155 155

    Pushups 3x10


    My bench is Very weak right now, I may cybex bench or DB bench tomorrow to really work my chest as i feel very very week flat benching and not too sore right now(well see how i feel tomorrow)...but my incline is coming back pretty well as i was able to jump up very easy and much higher in weights than last week.

    All in all, all of my lifts went up from last week and hopefully well see another nice jump next week. I hope to see alot of my weights jump up over the next few weeks as I start getting my strength back to where it was.

    Also......I did notice today that along with the energy I had at the beginning of the lift I was pushing alot harder today for the last rep and getting it up a little bit easier. And i would think that the SteelEdge had a part and I am VERY pleased with how ready to go i was!

    Overall im very excited....I was impressed with how ready and focused i was to lift, the energy was great. I found myself pushing alot harder and getting the last reps easier than last week. While part of this is just me getting back, I do think that Steel Edge definately helped and was not just as placebo. It was a pretty noticeable difference.
    I am anxious to see how the IntraXcell feels when it really starts kicking in.


    Sorry if i jumped around a little bit at all. This is my first log so any suggestions, feedback, etc. would be great.



    Tomorrow is Back and Bi's. well see how the pump goes tomorrow!

    SteelEdge is designed to meet all of your pre-workout needs and is quite different from other NO/Pre-Workout supplements. It is not packed with arginine/caffeine, which can get the user very pumped and "jacked" for the workout and make them think it is actually doing something. SteelEdge does have arginine and cell volumizers/vasodiolators, but it also gives you:

    BCAAs (with a focus on L-Leucine)

    L-alpha- glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha-GPC), Acetyl-L-Carnitine and choline bitartrate.....in reseach supported doses, which give you the "focus" during your workouts.

    Also, we put anti-oxidants/electrolytes in SteelEdge to clear free-radicals that are caused by exercise, and help you recover faster.

    .....basically, you are right.....SteelEdge is not a placebo

    As for IntraXCell, it will take your workouts to the next level because you will be able to lower rest times and train harder/longer. Stay tuned for weeks 2-3 of IntraXCell. It usually "kicks-in" around that time.

    And, your log is looking VERY good. I would never have known that this was your first log. I am impressed, seriously. Keep it up!

    Nice log, I am confident that you will like the products, This is my second run of steel edge and the first of IntraXcell, I am on the second week of both and am going to wait another week before I post the results, I am way out of the norm because I use supps to help with my work and also my hobby, no gym time due to the high level of work load of both. Have fun.

    Day 2


    Today was Back and Bis

    Again today I had nice jumps in my weights. I was felt focused again and definately had a little more behind me on the last few reps. However my overall energy was lacking but i would attribute that to not so great sleep last night and the fact that i just wanted to fall asleep during work today.(I may consider upping the servings to over 1.5 scoops if i feel tired again and see how much it is able to get me going)

    Vascularity was there again. and had decent pump in my lower back and bi's during last few sets, but not very much at all though in the beginning of lift.

    Today more than anything i was impressed with my focus throughout my lifts and with my ability to push through the last rep.

    5 4 2 1
    Hang Clean 185 205 225 225
    8 8 8
    Lat Pulldown 180 200 210x7
    10 8 8 6
    DB Row 90 95 100 110
    8 8 8
    T-Bar Row 135 180 225
    8 8 8
    Seated Row 130 130 Very Light
    Curls DB 30 35 40x6
    10 8
    Power Shrugs 275 315 405x5


    Again today's lifts went very well with nice jumps in everything. My clean went well but my traps were still very sore from last week and i think that hindered me a little with that lift. I cybex benched today also to hit my chest again but didnt go too crazy because tomorrow is shoulders. Also through in some abs and some other lighter things which i didnt record and probably wont record throughout the lifts(just as an fyi).

    And finally, I felt the tingling sensation again...not bothersome at all but do feel it. Just going to log this to see how long it takes my body to get accustomed to beta-alanine and not get the sensation anymore.

    Tommorow is Shoulders! Will report in again tomorrow.

    And again all comments suggestions etc is welcome.

    Day 3


    Awesome Lift Today. I had a nice pump going through everything and my whole body felt much tighter and just pumped in general.

    I was very happy about that...my workout just felt awesome.
    I definately had nice energy throughout the whole workout, again not feeling like i was falling off from set to set which is a great feeling.

    I am also noticing that its taking right about 25min for both supplements to kick in, on an empty stomach, with the IntraXcell kicking in a little quicker.

    So very im pretty impressed.....i felt a nice pump, energy throughout my workouts, and almost feel fuller already(my body is definately tightening up which is nice.) I really wanna see whats gonna happen at the end of the 4 weeks!

    Again my shoulder workout was awesome today. Had very nice jumps in weights and starting to feel some of my strength come back.

    12 10 8 6 4
    DB Press 40(AP) 50 60 70 80
    8 8 8
    Behind Neck Mil 90 110 130x5
    8 8 8
    Upright Rows 95 115 135x7
    45/35/25 45/35/25 45/35/25
    Plate Raise 10 10 13 7 5
    8 8 8
    Lateral Raise 30 30x6 30x6

    10 8 8
    Cybex Row (back) 70 70 70


    Ok thats it for now. Legs and Bis tomorrow

    again...any questions feedback etc. feel free

    Good stuff and very solid logging so far. A couple questions though.

    How much SteelEdge are you taking and have you tried the AEN dosage timing tip yet?

    I took 1 and a half scoops first 2 days, 2 scoops day 3.
    During my second week i may up it to 2 and a half to 3 scoops to see how that feels.

    And in response to the tip i may have missed that....if you could let me know what it is. Thanks

    Im with Kixazz on this AEN stack! I bought the Steele edge from NP as Darren was really wanting me to try it and once I read this log I went and got the IntraXcell also! Great engery from start to finish, I do 20-30mins cardio warm up before lifting and this stuff kicks and ill be pushing the Xtrainer to the limits! Really great products and I really like the Tingling feeling you get, like a shiver down your spine, its great. I think I will run these products for 2 months b/c Ill be going on a cruise in June. Again Great products AEN, and great Log Kixazz!

    I don't recommend going over 2 sccops,with 1-1.5 easily being enough for most. What you will usually find is,1-2 sccops is going to maximize the product, with more often giving you worse effects as well as being unessarily costly.

    Check the side of the label, where is says AEN dosage timing tip. Basically, drink have your serving PreWO and sip on the other half during. This will not only maximize SteelEdge's effects but often alow you to reduce your dosage.

    O yeah, just wait until weeks 2-3 of your IXL bottle.....your endurance will go up dramatically.

    Thanks for the kind words PYUP......and train like a freak until that cruise!

    Day 5


    Today was Leg's and Bi's.

    No steel edge today just IntraXcell. I had a nice lift today nothing great but my leg day is different from most. I had microfracture surgery on my ankle almost exactly a year ago and am still recovering. I really cannot squat heavy nor can I do many leg lifts heavy. Plus due to atrophy while i was on crutches my left leg is about 3/4 the size of my right(i never got the chance to fully rehab due to football).
    So my leg day is more of a rehab workout than a heavy workout, just trying to get it back without pushing my ankle too much. It sucks, i know.

    However, my Bi's felt great and by the 3rd set i had a nice pump going that lasted the remainder of the workout and is still going now(again not the stringest ive ever felt but def. feels nice).

    For the weekend its looking like saturday will just be some cardio and sunday i may do back again. I will report back sunday!

    So far so good! hopefully next week well start seeing some nice jumps once again!!

This sux I hate being sick, I want to be in the gym but I know it will make me worse!!!

    I have actually noticed a nice increase in vascularity....more than the pumps. From the first day you could just see that i was alot more vascular than i was when not on it.
    The pumps im getting arent the strongest but i do feel them. And my body as a whole just feels really tight which is a great feeling.

    Just curious....have you ever taken any NO products before?

    Day 8: Chest and Tri's


    Today's workout was awesome.....probably the best i've had so far with the stack. The pump today was great and lasted the whole workout and beyond....felt it really well in my arms.
    All my lifts went up.....i benched without warming up but still managed to do pretty well(went heavier this week but less reps).

    I definately feel bigger right now and can see it in the mirror. I will try to get pics im struggling to get a camera.

    My weight today pre workout was 184 and post was 186. So my weight seems to be coming back quicker than my strength(which i hope at the end of this will at least be somewhat close to what ive done before), but i am very happy to see it go up week to week. I also think that my weight is all good weight...im eating as good as i can right now....2 cans of tuna everyday for lunch on wraps....chicken breasts and some form of rice/pasta for dinner....rice cakes with peanut butter throughout the day....eggs for bfast....i usually eat like crap(and really dont gain any fat at all) so im encourgaed by teh fact that ive been keeping to a pretty decent diet and would like to see how much it helps........im also going to try to make it better by spreading meals out but thats still a work in progress as im still adjust to working 9-5....

    Day 9: Back and Bi's


    First of all, the pump in my lower back by the end of this workout was incredible. My lower back was hurting on the ride home, but i enjoyed it

    I didn't feel a crazy pump in my bi's but i did little of them and just killed my back today.
    The concentration that i feel when i lift is awesome. Its not like crazy jump around energy but i just want to get under the weights and lift. And once im done i just want to go again. I definately like that aspect of this product, and it seems like after reading the summaries of everyone else's logs this has been a recurring theme.


    5 4 2.5 1
    Hang Clean 205 205 215 225
    8 7 6
    Lat Pulldown 190 210 210
    10 8 7 6
    DB Row 95 100 105 110
    8 8 6 4
    DB curls 135 40 45 50
    8 8 8
    Power Shrugs 315 405x7 495x4
    ss. T Bar row 135 180 225

    I felt great lifting today...stronger and just wanted to keep doing more. I ended up Super-setting alot of things today as well as cybex benched again.

    The pump in my back lasted a good hour, hour and a half after the lift.

    More than anything right now my concentration and my push when lifting are showing a great difference!

    Day 10: rest


    I was going to do shoulders today but decided to take the day off today to rest. I havent gone to sleep before 1130 this week and still adjusting to working 9-5, it is killing me. So i decided to take the day off and just do some abs pushups.


    I will note today though: i feel big. My chest feels huge today. My back feels tight and my traps feel huge today. Its a great feeling.

    Tomorrow is shoulders. And I am definately looking foward to it and seeing how well i can push myself.

    Will report back tom.

    Oh yea....again my weight yesterday was right around 185. Its good to see that goin up! and i feel like im Leaning out too which is really good(not puttin on any bad lbs).

    Day 11: Shoulders


    Again todays workout was awesome. All my weights went up.

    I know that it says to take steel edge on an empty stomach but i always eat a little something. The first day as well as today i took it with a completely empty stomach(i was hungry and probably couldve ate a decent amount of food) and i REALLY feel this kick in. I feel like i have more energy when i take it on a completeley empty stomach like almost jittery. I actually like the feeling because i really want to get under the weights and just lift. And again, the thing that i really like is the concentration, i am really into it when i am lifting...much more than not taking it.

    The pump today as felt really good...i felt it in my 3rd set of the day which was nice as i love the "pump" feeling


    As for my workout:

    12 10 8 6 4
    DB Press 45(AP) 65 75 85 0
    8 8 8
    Behind Neck Mil 110 130x6 130x5
    8 8 8
    Upright Rows 95 115 135x7
    45/35/25 45/35/25 45/35/25
    Plate Raise 10 10 10
    8 8 8
    Lateral Raise 30 30x6 30x6
    DB Shrugs 80 80 80
    10 8 8
    Cybex Row (back) 70 70 70
    reverse flys 115 130x7 130x5


    I really pushed myself today but unfortunately i think im still breaking off scar tissue from tearing my labrum and dislocating my shoulder in the fall. So thats not the most comefortable feeling but im fighting through it.

    Im really impressed so far. You can really see me getting bigger and getting more definition in my arms

    Im impressed enough that i just bought another bottle of IntraXcell I am really encouraged and after reading everyone's logs it just seems like the right thing to do to get the absolute most out of it. And if i can get the funds I will be purchasing another SteelEdge and a third bottle of Intraxcell! We shall see


    Tomorrow is legs(rehab stuff) and i will be hitting my Bi's hard as i really dont do much during Back and Bi's day.

    Life is good when things work out. The confidence goes up when the looks improve, and seems like you are lucky enough to benefit from more IXL and SE in the future than originally planned...this is the part where you just sit back and enjoy the PR's + physique improvements.

    Yea...ive been trying to get back to where i was coming into camp for football in august since i had lost just about 15lbs and needless to say my strength was completely gone(and i was putting up very decent numbers for my size)

    im almost half way to my goal weight of 190....hovering around 184-185 and i can tell you it is not bad weight(I really feel much leaner than i had)
    My strength is definately not there but it is coming back in greater strides than i expected it too...and i am really finding myself able to push more and more without to much of a problem


    I am definately liking this so far and I hope that my gains will only improve as the IXL starts to really kick in...

    They certainly will, the second two weeks bring about a big jump in performance gains over the first two weeks.

    Been enjoying your log so far, thank you for the consistent updates.
