Generic Labz sponsored Cissus-Drol log by TSB
Firstly I must thank GL for selecting me as a tester.Secondly for sending the cissus-drol all the way down to New Zealand.I intend to give a strait up & honest feedback on this product.
If any of you checked out my supercissus log you will know that I have been lifting since I was 19yrs old.Spent a few years powerlifting and over the years have tried many different supplements.
I"ll be checking my BF levels and measurements before & after completing 2 bottles of cissus-drol and hoping to see the same positive joint effects from the cissus and interested in how effective the AI part of the cissus-drol is.
Diet is usually very clean and about 3500cal a day.6 meals a day consisting of 40% protein,30% carbs, 30% good fats & oils.Weekends I sometimes fall off the wagon diet wise but generally not to bad.For this log my diet will remain the same.
BF:to be checked in the next couple of days.
These are measurements were done tonight.
Mon: chest & arms
Wed: shoulders & calves & cardio
Fri: back & arms
Sat: legs & calves & cardio
Supplements being used:
Omega 3 concentrate at 6g/d
Paravol - 2 weeks left at 2/d
Cissus-drol at 3 caps/d started today.
I'm hoping that by keeping the other supplement use to a minimum I can gauge the true effects of the cissus-drol.Also I haven't used any cissus for 2 weeks and my joints are starting to feel it.

Last nights training was chest & arms.
Smith incline press x 6sets
Swiss ball db press x 5sets
Pec dec machine x 4sets
Tricep mac press x 4sets
Tricep rope extens x 3sets
Bicep pullups x 4 sets
Bicep concent. curls x 3sets
I do have an ongoing right shoulder injury(rotor cuff problem) and find chest training can be limited at times.Also I have to work on my lack of shoulder flexibility.But all that considered I still had a good workout.
Strength levels are still down a bit compared to before my elbow operation 2 months ago but slowly climbing.
I've had really good results using USP & Primaforce cissus so it will be interesting to see if and at what dose the cissus-drol kicks in.

what did you notice with the usp and primaforce cissus?
06-27-2007 12:55 AM
Firstly a analgesic effect which kicks in about 3-4 days of use.Secondly a very noticeable pump and increased recovery from injuries.Being an older lifter joint pain and discomfort can slow you down considerably.So for me cissus sure has helped with these issues.

Last night's training was shoulders & calves.
Let's get the bit*hing over with.Right shoulder is very sore from Mondays chest workout.
Definitely aggravated an old rotor cuff problem as I've had these before.I am thinking that the continual cissus use over the last 4 months could have been masking this injury.So shoulder training was more of a rehab workout than anything.
Calves wasn't much better as somehow during the day at work I had hurt my right knee and found standing calf raises impossible.Did manage some seated raises.
Still dosing the cissus-drol at 3/day.But I am tempted to up the dose.Only been on it 3 days so not much to report yet.

Shoulder problems suck! I've had my right one done twice (R.cuff) and now my left one is acting up. I've had to narrow my grip significantly to bench again and if I go heavy, I normally pay for it. But, I've gone fairly heavy while using the Cissus-Drol and the recovery has been good. I'm taking 2 caps right after I workout, so maybe that's helped?

What a difference a couple days can make.
Tonight was back & arms.I had a very solid back workout.Strength was up from last week and managed to get through the entire nights training without upsetting my fragile right shoulder.
Arm workout was also good with a nice pump happening.Some slight elbow discomfort but this to be expected as I have limited range of extension in my right elbow.
As from day 4 I have increased the cissus-drol dose up to 4 caps/d and also I'm taking it 15min before meals.2 first thing in the morning then 2 pre-workout in the afternoon on training days.
So tonight was the first time I experienced a noticeable pump.But nothing else to report yet.

Nice start big guy. I hope your shoulder feels better soon, it sucks not being able to go heavy when you know you can.
06-29-2007 10:28 PM
Thanks peece.Injuries sure can be frustrating at times.Part n parcel of being an older lifter I suppose.

Today was legs & calves.I was planning on doing this yesterday but to dam sore from Fridays training.Anyways my main exercise was deadlifts and I was very pleased with them.I've gone off doing squats for now as they were giving my elbow grief.
Last week having not done any DL's for about 3 months I could only manage 300 for 3 sets of 5.Today I did 400 for 6 , then 420 for 2 sets of 5.I could of gone heavier but I want to be able to walk tomorrow.(good old muscle memory).
The rest off my leg workout went well and managed more weight when training calves.Did miss my cardio today so I'll fit it in tomorrows workout.
Feelings on cissus-drol after 1 week.Seeing a steady improvement in strength.Felt a nice pump day 5 when training arms.Sleep has been good and libido is still about the same.I have still had some joint issues but all in all this product looks promising.Still dosing at 4caps/day.
I'm awaiting the ar***** of some bodyfat scales (one at a time fatty) that I brought online last weekend and I've also ordered some bodyfat calipers from NP so they should be here real soon.Time to see who ate all the pies.

Yesterday's workout was chest & arms.
Let's just start by saying that my legs are very sore from Sundays workout.Not that it affected this workout.
I was very pleased that I managed 3 sets with the 132 pound DB doing decline presses.Haven't played with these for quite some time and also that I managed to complete my workout without doing any more damaged to my right shoulder.Tricep strength is still down a little compared to pre operation levels and sometimes they fatigue early when pressing.But along with biceps they are improving.
Had a very nice chest & arm pump and my strength is definitely up from last week. Right shoulder is feeling better and this is very pleasing.Finally got my BF levels checked and I'm about 17-18%.

Time for a update.Things have been crazy at work this last week (bloody tornado's).But still managed to get to the gym for training.I have been feeling a little flat and think I may need to tweak my workouts.Also couldn't deadlift on Saturday due to a lower back issue so I have to change my intended leg workout anyway.
As for the cissus-drol I'm still using 4/day and I have noticed some acne and increased libido.Also have been quite irritable but this may just be related to work stress.My weight is down a couple of pounds but this is not to concerning as my goal is to try and lean up a bit away.Strength is still improving and getting nice pumps when training.
Still having some joint issues but not enough to effect training to much.

Good stuff, yeah my nose is getting a few pimps
07-08-2007 10:51 PM
Hmm, that's one thing I haven't noticed during my CISSUS-Drol log is acne (I've been going 6/day). Not that I'm complaining
07-09-2007 05:29 AM
Hi ya djl & peece.
A few pimps on my face but certainly nothing nasty like when I ran a cycle of TRN. Almost looked 18 again using that stuff.
Tonight's training was chest & biceps.I've changed my program somewhat and had a really solid workout.
Shoulder is still giving me some discomfort but managed to train around it.
Had a real good pump while training and still feel it 2 hours later.
07-09-2007 12:30 PM
Cool, yeah my pumps have been very nice lately

Wednesday's workout was shoulders & calves.
Push press 5 x 5reps
Seated db press 4 x 10reps - super setted with seated side raises 4 x 10reps
Cable side laterials 4 x 12reps
Wasn't lifting huge amounts but considering my rotorcuff problem still managed to complete without to much pain.Got a real nice shoulder pump as well.
Seated raises 5 x 5reps ( don't normally train calves low rep style.)
Standing calf raises 5 x 10reps.
Man have I been missing something or what.For the last 2 days I could hardly walk.My calves have been so dam sore.Why haven't I tired heavy weight & low reps before now?
Tonights workout was back & triceps.
Had a real strong crazy pump happening when training back.Good controlled aggression and focus.Pushed it hard and almost felt like I was going to puke at one stage.
Tricep workout was a bit tougher.Not much fuel left in the tank.But I did manage to complete it OK.
Feelings & results on the cissus-drol so far:
Pumps: very strong pumps which last well after training.
Aggression: has increased slightly.
Libido: no noted change.
Acne: also increased slightly.
Strength: has increased.
Weight: after dropping 2-3 pounds it is now back up to start weight.220
Body Fat levels:checked several times and has decreased, now reading 16-17%.
Joint issues: still ongoing but not enough to prevent me from training hard.
Only bad thing to note is today for the first time my right nipple was itchy?Haven't had this before so I not sure what to make of it.Haven't had any gyno issues before , so I'll certainly be watching this.
