Redhawk Reviews Reset A.D. by PAL!

My bodybuilding journey started in high school when lifting for football. Although at that time my workouts were closer to that of a powerlifter, and that is what my body resembled. Our workouts were all about power, and I was an offensive lineman, so needless to say my body was far from aesthetically pleasing .
I had a love for lifting early on, but only got into bodybuilding once I realized my health was in jeopardy. I was pushing 300 pounds after my final season of football, and although it benefited me in football, my overall health was suffering. I decided to simply stop eating fast food and pop, and riding the stationary bike a couple days a week. Weight flew off of me, but unfortunately plenty of it was muscle. By the time I got down to 230, I found some great books and websites that got me into a solid bodybuilding routine. From then on I began to gain strength back while losing more weight.
Today I sit here over 100 lbs less than the day my season ended, at around 12-14% body fat. For the past 6 months or so I have been using plenty of stims. I have always been a coffee drinker, but once into bodybuilding my overall caffeine intake went up greatly. I always try to cycle stims, but they still have very little effect on me unless I up the dose significantly.
For example: When taking white flood, I needed 3 scoops to feel much of anything, and I could still get to sleep perfectly 4 or so hours after taking it. I take 2 RPM in the morning, and 4-5 pre-wo. I also occasionally add in steel edge or vasoexplode.
The past 3 days I have had some unfortunate issues which caused me to discontinue my supps for a little, and I figured it made a good time to cycle off stims completely. I wanted to assess how I felt off stims w/o R.A.D. What I can tell you is that I felt very ****ty all day, and was ready to go to sleep much earlier than usual. This was the worst I have felt when cycling off, so clearly I have some issues with stim usage, so this log couldn't start at a better time.
I am also in a transformation contest at the moment, so will be using RPM, and a fat burner down the line. Stims are essentially unavoidable, so I am hoping R.A.D. will allow me to dose them lower.
I will be posting my thoughts on the product and what I feel from day to day, both with stim usage and overall stress reactions. I won't be posting my workouts as I don't feel it necessary, but if PAL would like to see them, I'd have no problem adding it.
I may also give some to my mother, as I feel she may have adrenal fatigue. I have my own bottle that I purchased, plus one on the way from PAL, so this log may go longer than others, depending on how much I give to my mother (will provide detailed feedback from her if I do).
If you have any questions/suggestions feel free to ask/suggest them
I took my first dose of Reset this morning, and will start back on RPM today.

Thanks xj. Looks like you'll have quite a stack going, I'll be checking that out later.
DAY 1 THOUGHTS
Well today was day one. I took one dose in the morning with 2 RPM, and my second dose with 3 RPM.
Nothing unusual was felt at the first dose. Dose to I felt "stimmed" immediately, but I think it was in my head, as it wore off rather quickly.
I still had great energy, and better than I normally would from 3 caps pre-wo. This could be from cycling off, although usually that doesn't matter.
What I did notice for sure was crazy sweating. I was absolutely dripping while working out. PAL reps: Can the R.A.D. amplify the thermo effect of caffeine/stims, or was this just a coincidence.
Fans were on like normal, and sweating came much earlier and much more.
Just day 1, so not concluding anything, but those are my thoughts thus far. We'll see what tomorrow brings

DAY 2 THOUGHTS
Today I dosed 2 Reset caps. One in the morning with one cap of RPM. The next dose was taken about 15 minutes prior to my next 2 caps of RPM.
In general when taking 1 RPM in the morning on off days I have ok energy levels, not great, but not terrible. Today I seemed to almost crash later. I became very tired. I would have taken only one more later, but I was so tired I took 2 RPM.
For a while I felt like I could fall asleep, which was unusual. Eventually though my energy levels seemed to rise, and no crash yet, still feeling pretty good.
It should be noted I slept better than usual last night. No way to tell if it is from Reset after one day, but worth noting. If this does continue to improve I will be one happy camper.
In terms of stress I notice no difference in reaction to work induced stress as of yet.

Still prolly a couple days from really feeling the effects, although some have felt them immediately, I am sure you are just a tad slower to get there. You will tho...this stuff rocks.
06-21-2007, 09:23 AM
I should point out though that last night sleep was great once again. I drink SO much water, that I inevitably wake up 1-3 times to pee every night. The last 2 nights I have woken up once and had to go, but fell back asleep before I got up. Needless to say I had to go pretty bad in the morning , but I have been very refreshed.
Like previously mentioned, sleep is huge for me, and I don't always sleep great, so if this is due to the reset this is good news for me.

I am also pretty hot right now, but I did not take my RPM. I took Reset AD + 3-AD + Incarnate. So, Reset might have a thermo effect, but right now I am thinking it is 3-AD, because this is my second bottle of Reset and I don't remember getting this hot.
06-21-2007, 11:39 AM
The sweating was just even more than normal even on RPM, so I wasn't sure if Reset can potentiate the stimulant effect of stims, AND the thermo effect.
I'll have to check out your log, sounds like quite a stack
06-21-2007, 12:17 PM
Yeah stop by my log. 7 days on and I feel pretty good about the stack. The jury is still out on 3-AD and Incarnate, but Reset AD could possibly a staple, because I always take stimulants, and even if I don't I think it could be beneficial in recovery from strenuous workouts.

Looking GREAT man..
I dont think that the Reset is making you sweat, but it might be allowing the thermogenics of the RPM work more effectively..
keep up the progress!

DAY 3 THOUGHTS
Today I dosed 2 Reset caps. One was dosed first thing in the morning with 2 caps RPM. I cannot say that I noticed a greater than usual effect whatsoever compared to when I normally take 2 caps in the morning.
My second dose was before my pre-workout meal. 1 hour after my pre-workout meal I took 4 caps RPM. Now, I had a great workout, but nothing enhanced from normal when I take the 2-4 dosing scheme for RPM, EXCEPT sweating.
Sweating was absolutely out of control. And just to clarify, I always sweat quite a bit on RPM, I have been on it about a month or so, but it was much greater than usual WITH RPM.
I cannot say that the actual stimulant effect was altered whatsoever though.
I've mentioned that my sleep has been better, but I should elaborate. I have been falling asleep much faster, which is awesome, not to mention I am sleeping sounder. Hopefully this continues

DAY 4 THOUGHTS
Today was a pretty good day for reset and me.
Last night I had a LOT on my mind, and sleep suffered because of it. I took one reset with 1 RPM upon waking. I felt great all day and never crashed. I took another reset before my prewo meal, and then later took 4 rpm.
I was dripping in the gym again, and had fine energy, but I can't say I have become more sensitive to stims yet.
What I can say is my overall energy seems to be higher throughout the day, without crashing. Also, although I was impressed with the sleep after 2 days, it didn't overcome last night, not that it should have.
06-22-2007, 10:42 PM
Yeh the Reset should help a lot with sleep man, we have been hearing that a lot.
The comment you made about going all day and literally NEVER crashing, well that is DEF. the Reset. I used to always crash AT LEAST once per day, and soon as I started Reset I havn't since, seriously I am in love with this stuff. I would really recommend you try the combo of Reset+Leviathan whenever you can, I am really loving that stack. Would even be great with RPM.
Anyways, great log so far man. I am excited to see you enjoying this whole thing.

Well I must must report that sleep was absolutely incredible last night. I never woke once (VERY unusual for me).
I only got 7 hours of sleep, when usually 8 is the magic number, and felt amazingly refreshed and couldn't sleep longer if I wanted to. Very happy about this, as good sleep is hard to come by for me, and it definitely helps my recovery/workouts.

DAY 5 THOUGHTS
Yesterday was interesting in terms of stim usage. I took 1 reset along with 3 rpm before morning cardio.
I didn't exactly notice a difference in stim tolerance, however I felt really good. I decided to try a little HIIT, and even with warming up correctly, I pushed really hard and had a crazy heart beat. I stopped HIIT and cooled down, and then did Low intensity cardio. My heart beat was still somewhat uncomfortable, but subsided eventually.
I never crashed and felt pretty good the rest of the day, and ended up sleeping very well, and longer than usual.]]I woke up semi-lethargic, and 1 reset with no stims has seemed to wake me up pretty good so far.

THOUGHTS AFTER 1 WEEK
So today was day 7 on Reset.
What I can say for certain so far is that this product has a positive impact on my sleep. For the most part falling asleep is easier, and I sleep through the night more often.
Reset has allowed me to lower my use of stims and prevent a crash. I definitely seem to have better energy throughout the day.
I have only once noticed a stim hitting me harder than usual, and that was a cup of coffee. When making coffee the amt of caff can vary as the water level isn;t always exact, but still a cup of coffee hasn't done much for me, probably ever lol.
I am pleased so far, and looking forward to this week.
If you have any specific questions, or would like me to comment on another issue, feel free to let me know

DAY 8 THOUGHTS
Pretty great day today in terms of the reset. I took only 2 caps of RPM all day for my total caffeine in take.
I took 1 RPM w/ 1 reset first thing in the morning, and went to work (hard labor paint job). I worked all day long with a crazy sweat in the heat, and never crashed all day. At about 4 I took another reset.
Later I took 1 more RPM cap, along with 3 of the betas from AN. Now my workout was insane, and energy was pretty great, which should be attributed to Reset, but somewhat the beta as it can give stim free energy.
Nonetheless, no crash, great energy levels all day on only 2 caps of RPM. Good stuff so far
