    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.

    DAY 1 (10/1/07)

    Chest/Bicep
    I hate doing chest on monday because it seems everyone else is too, but a big exam set my schedule back one day, luckily I was hyped to see what drive could do.

    Flat Bench
    135x15, 145x10, 145x10, 155x8

    DB Incline Press
    45x15, 55x10, 55x10 60x8

    DB Flies
    40x12, 40x12, 45x10, 45x10

    DB Hammer Curl
    35x15, 35x15, 40x12, 40x10

    DB Concentration Curl
    30x15, 35x15, 40x 12, 45x8

    ABS-Leg Lifts on Power Tower-30x20, 30x20, 30x20

    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
    Aggression--nothing yet
    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
    Energy--nothing noticable

    I think you should mess around with it. Maybe 3 or 4 would work best for you.

    6-8, theoretically, but 4-5 will do someone who is 190 just right And remember, please stack it with RPM- this is one of the best (if not THE best) drug-free stacks on the market!!

    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.

    LEGS
    Smith Machine Squats
    205x12, 205x12, 255x10
    Leg Press
    270x13, 270x13, 360x10, 360x10
    Calf Raise
    255x12, 255x12, 270x10, 270x10
    Leg Extension
    150x12, 150x10, 150x10
    Leg Curl
    135x12, 135x12, 150x10, 150x10
    Abs:Machine Crunches
    70x30, 70x30
    Obliques
    25x20, 25x20

    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??

    The sweating and "hot" feeling is pretty normal- Drive is a really strong thermogenic, as well as a lean mass builder

    Day 3
    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
    Pumps-no workout
    Endurance--Im getting around campus good, drive may be helping me bear classes from 9am-9pm
    Agression- Up, not negatively but deffinately more aggressive
    Focus-Slightly up
    Libido-High
    Muscle Density-I feel like this is increased
    Energy--Nothing noticeable

    Day 4
    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.

    Strength-N/A
    Bodyweight/Bodycomp- Checking this weekend or possibly tomorrow
    Pumps-Good
    Endurance--Good
    Agression--Increased
    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??

    At least it is starting to cool off (assuming you live in the northern hemisphere).

    Day 5
    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.

    Workout
    Back and tricep


    Wide Grip Pullups(using bodyweight)
    12, 12, 10, 10
    Rows(rowing machine)120x10, 120x10, 135x8, 135x8
    Weighted Dips
    20x15, 25x12, 25x12, 25x10
    Tri-Press Down
    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
    Endurance-Up
    Agression-Up, I get really pumped to get into the weight room and hit the weights
    Focus-Up
    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?

    Awesome- it will keep getting better over time- most of the studies with the components in Drive have best results over a10-14 week period...
