    Do you always do so few sets/reps for your body parts. Eg for arms your only doing one set of BB curls up to 6 reps then two sets of DB curls up to 6 then the cable work. Does this ever produce a pump for you? Just seems rather small. Is this a style you've always used? I'm not having a go here i just wanted to know your reasoning behind your lifting style.

    Maybe one of the AE guys can answer this but would this product me more effective in the higher rep range say 8-12?

    I read through the MD column late last night so apologies if im asking q's that have already been answered but i've forgotten half of the stuff i read already

    Boosting carnosine levels with Beta-Alanine is effective at all points during your set, whether you’re lifting heavy or doing endurance work. Your body uses three energy systems to perform work: the ATP-PC system, which is primarily used during heavy lifting and for sets up into the 5-6 rep range; the glycolytic system, which is predominantly used roughly within the 7-15 rep range and up; and the oxidative/fat system, which is used primarily in endurance training. Our energy systems are utilized simultaneously; however, depending on the level of intensity or duration of exercise and fitness levels of the individual, certain energy systems will become more dominant in producing energy needed for that activity. Anybody who trains with weights will primarily use the first two systems and, in both cases, the build-up of hydrogen ions will contribute to fatigue in both systems, especially glycolysis.

    This is where the supplement creatine falls a little short. It is mostly effective in the ATP-PC system, which relies on stored ATP and re-synthesis using phosphocreatine (PC) for intense, high-energy contractions. Taking creatine will help your explosive strength but it won’t help you much in the 7-15 rep range. As anyone trying to build bigger muscles knows, you must train in both heavy and moderate (7-15 reps) ranges to gain lean mass. Beta-Alanine, by increasing carnosine concentrations, can buffer/fight the H+ build-up that occurs in both these ranges, allowing you to maintain forceful contractions for longer periods of time.

    Decreasing cellular fatigue is an additional strength of Beta-Alanine. A recent study demonstrates that Beta-Alanine significantly outperformed creatine in decreasing cellular fatigue, giving it yet another advantage over what has been considered the most effective sport supplement of the last decade.

    This is what most people think they should do. This is what most people have been told to do. However, this exactly what you should not do.

    One adage that you should sear into your brain is to let the weights build the muscle and let your diet remove the fat. High reps and lower weight will not efficiently allow this to happen.

    For some reason most people think that by using lighter weight and increasing the reps you'll burn more fat. Not true. Not true at all. Weightlifting, no matter how high your reps, is not an aerobic exercise. The amount of reps you do has no direct bearing on the amount of fat your body burns during the exercise. In fact, lighter weight will indirectly make it more difficult to decrease body fat and increase your definition.

    I know, that goes against all that you have ever been told about weight training. Well, I'm here to tell you that most of what you have probably learned is wrong. And if it's not completely wrong, in most cases it's certainly not the "optimal" way.

    Whenever you lift weights you are doing so to build, strengthen, and/or tone the muscle you are training. This is accomplished most effectively by overload. Overload is accomplished by using a weight that allows between 4 to 6 reps. You don't lift weights to burn fat so you shouldn't attempt to use weightlifting for that purpose.

    High reps will not supply sufficient overload to efficiently provoke a muscle growth response. You may get a slight response but not at all efficient or any where near a maximum response.

    When you are attempting to decrease your body fat levels while maintaining or increasing your muscle mass, maximizing the overload for 4 to 6 reps is far more effective at obtaining the desired result.

    Following this overload principle allows you to induce muscle growth while you let your diet effectively decrease body fat. Conversely, decreasing the weight and increasing your reps will set you up for failure because the lower weight and higher reps will not be supplying sufficient overload to maintain adequate muscle mass, much less build more. This coupled with a calorie restricted diet will cause your body to preference lean mass for its energy need instead of fat stores.

    Also, as your body is preferencing muscle tissue for its energy needs it is making your body become less and less efficient at burning calories. This makes it more and more difficult to burn body fat and easier to burn muscle tissue. This is just the opposite with overload training. Overloading the muscle will build more muscle tissue creating a more efficient metabolic environment for burning stored body fat.

    This means maximizing overload to the muscle while you train. This means heavy weight for 4 to 6 reps.

    If you start training lighter with high reps you are reducing the stimulus for muscle growth. Combine high rep training and increased cardio with caloric reductions and you are asking for muscle loss.

    It is important to understand that high reps with light weights does not equal more definition. Increasing your definition is the result of reducing your body fat and that is accomplished by paying close attention to your diet and incorporating cardiovascular exercise. Training with higher reps and lighter weights will not burn fat but it will reduce the stimulus for muscle growth.

    Calve press 10x45 5x2 1 set 10 reps



    Energy- good.
    Endurance- good.

  7. 19th day.

    Shoulders and biceps
    Barbell shurgs 100lbs 5 sets 10
    Barbell curls ez curl 85lbs 1 sets 4-6 ( I still swing so I will continue to do 85 on ez till I stop swinging )
    dumbbell curl 40lbs each arm 2 sets 4-6
    Cable curl 120lbs 2 set 4-6

  8. Back day

    Dead lifts 45x4+40 + 5+5 bar 2 sets 4-6 reps
    Cable pull down 140lbs 2 sets 4-6 reps
    Cable row 120lbs 1 set 4-6 reps

  9. How is your endurance? Are you sweating more during your workouts? Hows your weight?

  10. I am hanging in there. I am not sweating as much now that I uped my water consumption during my work out. What are you refuring to for weight? How much do I weight or how much weight am I lifting? I have not gone on a scale since I started. I do look a little more cut when I check my bod out in the bathroom mirror.

  11. I am comming to the end of my cycle as I stated at the beggining bunch of the caps got stuck together from heat or something so I have like 5 days worth of product left.

  12. Gym tuesday and Wed.

    Squats 45x2 2.5x2 and bar 3 sets 4-6 reps
    Leg curl 90 2 sets 4-6 reps
    Sitting Calve rise 45x3 2 sets 10 reps
    standing calve rise what ever the max on the machine is 2 sets 10 reps
    Calve press 10x45 10x2 1 set 10 reps
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Shoulders and biceps
    Barbell shurgs 100lbs 5 sets 10
    Barbell curls ez curl 85lbs 1 sets 4-6 ( I still swing so I will continue to do 85 on ez till I stop swinging )
    dumbbell curl 40lbs each arm 2 sets 4-6
    Cable curl 120lbs 2 set 4-6

    Both days stayed the same. I have 3 days of caps left.
    Do you think I should go out and get another 30 days worth since my work out programs are 8 weeks with 1 week break? I want the most out of beta-alanine.

    Honestly, if you want to get the most out of your first Beta-Alanine/IntraXCell experience, you should stay on it for 2-3 months. Studies show that your Carn levels continue to increase up to the 12 week mark, so I'd say go at least 12 weeks to get the most out of your experience

  14. So I finished what was in the bottle.

    On a scale of 1-11
    Easy to take 11
    Felt like it worked 8
    Would take it again 9
    Would recommend it to other people 10
    Would take it for 8 weeks vs 4 weeks 8
    Over all score 9

    Thanks for letting me log Intra X Cell. Hope more people get to try the product in the future and even today.
