    Nice!!!, do you think i should change my dose of IXL to a maintenance level? or is the 6 caps/day strandard as per AEN's article about dosing protocol? I dont get the tingle anymore is there any reason to take more at this point.

    The parathesia is usually the strongest when you first take IXL. However, your body will build up a tolerance, and this sensation will diminish to almost nothing like you mentioned. This by no means suggests that your carnosine levels are not continuing to increase

  18. Hey SWG, u said u had some 3-AD coming, I remember u saying u were done with anything hormonal. I am ready to see if the excessive hype is worthy, time will tell. Good log as usual, keep it up, I am on a Beta-alanine product for about 5 weeks now and the effects are really starting to happen, strength especially......

    I think that for someone your size, 6 caps (4g, BA), is pretty much your "maintenance dose." The lowest dose supported by research is 3.2g per day, and the highest being, 6.4g per day. I'd stick with what you are doing

    BTW, "back in the day," the directions on IXL called for you to take ALL 6 caps at once....lol....talk about getting the tingling sensation! But after about 2-3 weeks, I didnt even tingle when I took all 6 caps at once

    It's like DaveGabe said, tingling is not an indication of IXL working

    LOL i say alot of things, I got the 3-ad for free by posting post #2660 in AX thread. I also have a 30 pill sample i won from AN of RPM. Rip'd your a week ahead of me im glad to hear the improvements keep on going!!

    Has anyone else on this stack noticed that you sweat like a pig, i mean sweating sheets in the gym, sweat whilst i sleep, sweat if i hold my GF hand.... its constant. Maybe its just me, maybe its my metabolism speeding up, maybe its cause im in better shape, maybe its cause im off the couch, lol.

  26. Days 28 29 and 30 unfortunetely had to be spent out of town, i got back yesterday. I am starting a new buisness with my uncle and we had to get certification and take some tests. I am going to post my fianl thoughts and pictures to finish this log and will not bother to post the reviews from the last three days as it would not provide any new or unprecedented information to any readers. In this post i would also like to thank Athletic Edge Nutrition for giving me supplements out of their pockets and paying for it to be shipped to me. I enjoyed trying something new that didnt compromise my health in IXL and a well formulated drink in SE.
    AEN has proven to be a solid new company with info posted about the efficacy and scientific backing of thier products. This log has given me a chance to test AEN and their supps, and they have performed well and will be given future buisness.

  27. IntraXcell by Athletic Edge Nutrition -

    Does this product impact endurance and muscular performance ?

    I noticed during my log there came a point where i could tell IXL was working, things came easier and my performance rarely waned. It was about day 18 or so that i noticed changes and my body temperature increased, my muscles felt strong and i didnt really get tired.

    Did i lose any fat on this 30 day adventure ?

    I think i have lost considerable fat, i am happy, but for others i will hope the pictures do me justice.

    Did i add any muscle ?

    I believe along with leaning down i managed to add some muscle and get closer to my PB strength that i achieved using PH's.

    How did i feel about the tingle ?

    I kinda of liked the sensation IXL gave me, sometimes it was unexepected when habitually popping pills.

    All in all would you use IXL again and given your experience would you recommend this to others ?

    I would use IXL again and will continue to use it for another 2 months (two bottles) that i purchased from nutra planet. I would also recommend IXL to anyone looking to increase performance and moreso endurance.

    On a 1 to 10 how would you rate IXL ?

    Its difficult to rate physiological changes on such a simple scale but i would say 9.5/10. Any product that can burn fat, add muscle, increase endurance safely, is top notch in my books. IXL limited lactic acid problems, and now i want to see how it does with some creatine.

  28. Steeledge by Athletic Edge Nutrition -

    Did steeledge improve your workouts ?

    It gave me clean jitter free workouts that seemed easier and more intense at the same time.

    What could be said about the flavor and mixability of SE ?

    SE mixed well, did not settle, and had a pleasant taste. If i could change anything it would be .. a flavour variety pack but i understand AEN would not ba able to offer this great pricing with such a product.

    Energy is one thing, did SE help you hydrate or affect your appetite ?

    I stayed hydrated rather easily and rarely did not have a PWO appetite.

    Would you continue using SE or recommend it to others ?

    I am continuing to use SE and have recommended it to others.

    On a 1 to 10 scale how would SE rate ?

    SE rates 9/10, it had all the positives i needed without the negatives i didnt. It might not be possible to make these nutrients taste better but it is the only thing i could think to improve. Where theres a taste theres an opinion.
