I've now been running this full set as a stack for about a week now (a bit longer for the Drive + Osteobolin alone) and I had to start this log already. I wanted to catch up on my existing detail log first, but I needed to put this up already particularly after todays workout. I will go back in later and fill in some of the past detail but I had to spit this out right after it happened
Quick recap, I had already started taking at 16 caps a day spread in 2 hr intervals (for the vitamin c absorption more than anything) when AN started their crazy Dirk on vacation contest. I was one of the big winners and nailed 3 of the contests as a part of it, I got one of the drive betas. Now I know that the beta I am taking is missing one of the components that are in the final, so imagine the results will be even better with final product.
Over this week although i'm at least 300-500 cal below maintenance daily, i've somehow managed to loose NO scale weight at all. The difference tho is that my vacularity and muscle definition are both noticeably up. In the approx 2 weeks of taking Drive, i've lost at least 3/4 inch from my waistline, while being within a pound of the start weight. For anyone reading this that doesnt know, I've been on a 6 month cut now, so no changes are water weight or any of that initial easy loss. I'm right about 14-16% body fat at this point, with an end goal of 10%. The other product I am currently using to aid in this is , as it is a stim free fat burner, and i'm trying to clip back stims (other than maybe coffee) entirely for a while.
So the excitement of todays workout that forced me to finally start the log? I think I got just about dialed in now. Any of the nutrient partitioning products take some experimentation to really get right. Because they mimick an insulin response, your insulin sensitivity has a lot to do with how they work out. How many grams of carbs, type of carbs, time ingested, etc are very individual. Its not entirely surprising for one person to need just a single serving oatmeal packet to feel right, and for someone else to still feel hypoglycemic with 2 packs. Today I had one of the EAS Myoplex RTD shakes pre-workout, with 20g of basically all for carbs with a dose of neovar, and immediately post workout had a bannanna and a portabello mushroom patty on whole grain toast with another dose of neovar.
Damn is all I have to say. During the workout I got great but not overwhelming pumps. I could feel them, and felt all "puffed", but not to the point where I couldn't work out. After the post workout dose, within minutes I could see even more of a pump, more vascularity, and even got a little bit of the "skin looking like its paper thin" thing. Now at least I know what that means I only got that on my hands which makes sense as there is almost no fat there. But now I get an idea of what i'll look like elsewhere once I get down to that 10% bodyfat. Damn neovar will give some nice effect all over then!
I'll add some more detail about workout scheme and diet here later, or if anyone wants to look now take a look at the detail log link in my signature.
