The Drive Experience
My names Sam and this will be my first log. Ill be logging the new DRIVE.
Ive been lifting consistently since March of this year after wrestling ended for high school. I stopped in March weighing 128lbs soaking wet. Im now sitting at 145 lbs without a huge gain in fat. But at 5'6'' im still small.
My current macros are about 170 grams protein(eggs and tuna I can swipe from the dining hall, along with the best choice of lean protein at the dining hall that day), 200 grams carbohydrates(mainly oats and veggies with some whole wheat bread in there), and around 45 grams healthy fats mainly from peanut butter, fish, and olive oil.
Ill be taking 2 DRIVE a day. 1 in the morning 30 minutes before I eat and one an hour or so before I workout. As per the AppNut criteria(hey if im gonna log i might as well take advantage of it) ill be listing any changes in strength, bodyweight, pumps, endurance, agression, focus, libido, muscle density, or energy.
I took my first pill at 8 this morning and went to Biology class, I didnt notice anything except my forearms did look slightly vascular just sitting taking notes, but it may be in my head. Ill update again after my workout.

Are you going to experiment with the dosage? Maybe bumping it up to 4? Or do you just plan on staying at 2 throughout? I've used as many as 8 and the effects IMO are dose dependent.

A good workout today, it may be too early to say if drive is having any effect but I definately got some crazy pumps and vascularity today. My focus also seemed to be on point at the gym (unfortunately not in my classes). Im excited to see what drive has to offer. Since im right on the border at 144 lbs and the 2 pill a day dosage is up to 150lbs, should I consider taking more than 2 a day?
Strength--i think its too early to say yet
Bodyweight--144 to start, lets see where this takes me
Pumps--very good, I got the veins on my arm to pop out just tying my shoes
Endurance--same as normal
Focus--Sharper than usual in the gym
Libido--typical for a college guy meaning HIGH
Muscle Density--i felt fuller today, but thats most likely placebo

Took another drive this morning. Vascularity was back strong again. I got a good nights sleep so Drive isnt affecting my sleep at all. Leg workout coming up later. Im thinking 2 drive before I workout. Ill post later with how it went.

DAY 2 (10/2/07)
Took 2 Drive before my workout today. I dont know if its related but I have been sweating like crazy since. Its not really any hotter than any other day. Has anyone else experienced this?? My workout flew by faster than usual today, i was bouncing back alot faster between sets. Myfocus was also on point again today.
Smith Machine Squats
205x12, 205x12, 255x10
270x13, 270x13, 360x10, 360x10

150x12, 150x10, 150x10
135x12, 135x12, 150x10, 150x10
Strength: Slightly up, more reps on the leg press
Bodyweight: didnt check today, ill give it two more days and get a weight
Pumps: Good, vascularity in my arms during squats
Endurance: Up, recovery between sets it much better
Agression: I think this may be slightly increased, I definately dont have time for stupid people today
Focus: Up, the best so far
Libido: high as usual
Muscle Density: I feel fuller, but its only day 2
Energy: not really energy, id say more focus and endurance
Just wondering what everyone else is noticing from drive??

Wednesday and Thursday are my off days due to the fact that my school schedule is so crazy on these days I cant get into the gym for a decent workout. So i use these days to recover. Im taking 3 drive a day right now, 1 in the morning and 2 pre workout, or 2 in the afternoon on rest days. Still feeling really hot after taking these. Muscle density seems to be up a little bit. So is aggression.
Strength--no workout today
Bodyweight--I will post friday or saturday, however i feel and look slightly fuller
Endurance--Im getting around campus good, drive may be helping me bear classes from 9am-9pm
Agression- Up, not negatively but deffinately more aggressive
Muscle Density-I feel like this is increased

No workout again today. Like I said wednesday and thursday are crazy for school. So running back and forth to labs and classes all day was tiring but after taking drive I seemed to have a boost that lasted for about 1.5-2 hours. It was deff a plus. I split my dosage over 3 times today for a total of 3 caps. 1 morning, 1 noonish, and 1 5 ish. Vascularity is common now and im just starting to notice some energy from this. A good sign. Im still sweating like crazy but not as much as day 2, so this seems to be subsiding. Probally unrelated but my legs have been killing me since tuesday. Its back to the gym tomorrow for a back workout.
Bodyweight/Bodycomp- Checking this weekend or possibly tomorrow
Focus-On point(a big plus, today was a 2 hour chemistry exam)
Libido-I have been getting alot of random boners, so up
Muscle Density-feel fuller, but still kinda early
Energy- Got a taste of this today
Drive is starting to deliver something new, energy. The best thing is that the only negative side is really sweating, and is that even negative??

Felt good to be back in the gym today. Sweating like crazy in the gym today but its really humid here today at the university of delaware so I guess thats to be expected.
Back and tricep
Wide Grip Pullups(using bodyweight)
12, 12, 10, 10
Rows(rowing machine)120x10, 120x10, 135x8, 135x8
20x15, 25x12, 25x12, 25x10
80x12, 90x12, 90x12, 100x10
Romanian Deadlifts135x12, 135x12, 135x12
Strength-Up. Im getting a few more reps on some exercises
Bodyweight/BodyComp- I got a rough weight today of 147. Thats up 3 lbs from my rough weight I took last week so somethings happening. and I think I may have the beginnings of a v-taper going on.
Pumps-Great, some of the best pumps ive had are with this
Agression-Up, I get really pumped to get into the weight room and hit the weights
Libido-random boners more than usual
Muscle Density-Im gonna say this is up as well, not huge but I feel something
Energy-mild at best but theres a difference after I take the pills
For my dosage today I took 1 morning, 2 pre-workout. Im really loving drive so far. I honestly cant find an area where its not delivering to some degree. Id say the pumps and aggression are the most defined so far. Any comments out there?
