CKD time....sponsored BLAST of energy from nimbus

Page 2 of 4 First 1234 Last

  1. Just got done eating breakfast. I took my one scoop of BLAST with ~10oz water. I feel good, alert, and a clean stream of energy. I dont know what time I'm going to train 2day but I'll def have my BLAST.

    I was thinking of doing 1 scoop 15~20min before my workout and another scoop sipped on during my workout. I seem to fizzle out as my workout goes on.

    Sounds like a good plan of attack.

    A very lite citrus flavor when 1 scoop mixed in about 6-8oz water.

    Looks like a good protocol. Defintely interested in your results with this and CKD diet.

  4. Here's last night's workout, it was pretty good. I did one scoop BLAST about 30minutes pre and then started sipping on another scoop when I started training. It went well but I also want to try 2 scoops, start sipping on it about 30min pre and finish it as I start my 1st set.

    Flat BB Bench
    2warm-up sets
    5 sets 225x8

    Low cable Flys
    3setsx12

    Flat DB fly
    70x8
    -Just wanted one set to really stretch the pec's out

    Like I have said earlier my endurance blows, real bad. If you seen my first 5 reps at 225 u'd think I could get an easy 12-15 but no I hit a wall. I'm hopeing that Beta-Alanine will kick in soon.

    BLAST
    -Same as 1st dose. Clean feel good energy with no crash. I can't stress enough how it just makes me feel good. I worked out at about 5pm and finished at ~6pm and had no trouble going to sleep at 11.
    -I'm getting close to the same amount of energy from BLAST as I do from spike, which IMO is the best energy drink out there + I love the taste. BUT....I get the shakes from spike if I dont drink it with food and then dont get as much energy.

    i agree on the spike. just ordered blast and more swell, hope the blast treats me as well as the swell. glad you are liking it.
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  6. Man 2day I just dont to train, no because of the holidays but because I just have nothing in the tank and it's time for a depletion workout. So here's what I did........I took 2 scoops BLAST 1 scoop Poseidon and 10gr Leucine and a lil crystal lite lemonade, put it into a leiter bottle of water. I'm gonna start sippin' on that bad boy in about 2 minutes and then wait about 15min and head to the gym and probably finish it just before my last circut. That should do the trick.

    Then carbs, carbs,carbs, and some more carbs!!!!!

    I'll probably update 2maro morning on how I feel but if not.....

    Everyone have a safe and happy holiday

    It was weird after I was done working out I looked lean but kinda flat but kinda pumped, IDK. I hit 75gr Waxy Maize with 12oz OJ postworkout and then an apple and I feel good.

    The Blast helped but at the same time hurt It hurt because my stomach couldn't handle the water I was drinking. Next time I'll just do 2 scoops pre with only 16oz H2O during.

  8. 1st 24hours done!!! I feel ok. Not as full as I'd thought i'd feel but then again the carbs havent been form the greatest sources either, alot of salty holiday food's got be gloated. When I put my shirt on it was real tight in my chest so def some increased chest fullness. The BLAST got me thru presents this morning. I just did not feel like doing anything but here about 2hours later I'm stil feeling good.

    These carbs have also made me really lethagic. I got about 6 more hours of loading and back to the CKD grind 2maro.....

    Nice log so far, DW!

  10. Another great workout via BLAST.......

    I'm done with coffee altogether. I can't have a cup before breakfast anymore. I get jittery as hell and feel weird as hell. So BLAST is givin' me that morning pick me up now!!! i just slam 1 scoop 1st thing. I make it before bed and let it sit there over night and as soon as the alarm goes off I slam my BLAST hit the snooze sleep for about 10 more minutes then im up and ready to go.

    As for BLAST and my workout....perfecto'. I mixed up 2 scoops and slammed it about 15min before my workout.....smooth sailing. No jitters or anything negative from 2 scoops just a great feeling.

    Just a common weight fluctuation with all the added blood volume increases from high intensity weight-training IMO.

    Great updates DW, good idea on planning your carb ups thru Christmas dinner.

  12. upper body


    upper body workout 2day. I'll take 2maro off and then do a depletion type workout saturday morning followed by a 12hour carb load to get me back on normal schedule. I think my elbow injury may be flareing up again it's sore right now. I'll up my cissus dose and that should take care of it.

    My endurance is terrible, I really can't stress that enough,lol. Good thing baseball is all about explosive strength. I think that combo'd with 60sec rest between superset's on chest/back work added to the endurance problem

    Weight Before: 196lbs
    Weight After:198.5lbs

    Gaining weight while looking leaner I'm eating about 3,000cals give or take 200. I was eating close to 4,500 cals while bulking and was stuck at just above 200lbs.

    BLAST:
    -Well pretty much im in love. If this tasted like Spike I'd easily by a year supply. Workin,prld2gr8ns if you can make that happen I will buy 365 cans and you'd get a thank you letter from my wife (see below).
    -The wife let our little guy sleep with us last nite after he woke up at 2am. Let me tell you it was the worst sleep I've gotten in a long time. He wanted to sleep between us and he kept wakeing my up. I was real crabby this morning because I was dead tired and have a ton to do 2day. So i decided to double up the morning dose of BLAST and boom clean energy about 15min later. Then another double dose before my workout. Stil no shakes or jitters which is odd, I was almost certain i'd have some ill effect. After hitting the gym I feel great, infact the wife said it was like nite and day talking to me this morning and just 10minutes ago on the phone. I was skeptical about the feel goodness (made that up) of PEA and other otc products like that but man I'm a believer now.

  13. WOW!! Looks like things are moving along for you swimmingly my friend. The taste idea was something that was tossed around for a little while, but we really liked the idea of having an entire product line that utilized little if any artificle sweetners(for all us health conscious folks out there). It's defenitly something to consider down the road though, and exactly the type of feedback I like to hear on these types of logs.

    Good job DW.

  14. very nice review, i start blast tomorrow.
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  15. Looking good. subbed.

  16. Good to hear that this is not a product that causes the jitters (and when carb cycling its easy to tell). I think I will pick up some for the new year. Keep up the good work DW, and I feel your pain with the carb coma on Christmas.. I was couch bound for sure hahaha.

    Distilled if you don't mind could you post up a daily sample of what your diet consist of. I've read up on AD and the such but I'm still confused as to how the carbohydrate portion is counted. Are you taking into account all carbs (including fiber) or just net carbs? I might have to give this a try for spring if I can keep my broccoli and cauliflower.

  28. Thinking about makeing this.....


    I hade some cheesecake yesterday and damn was it good. So I went searching thru AM and came across this recipe. I think I'll give it a go except mix 2 regular cream cheese and 2 non-fat.

    - 4 pkgs (8 oz.) of Philidelphia Cream Cheese 2 FF/2 reg.
    - 1 1/2 Cups Splenda or Xylitol (sp?)
    - 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
    - 5 egg whites
    - 3 scoops ON Any Whey (great for bakeing)

    If I was to make a crust I'd do so by combineing milled flax seeds and cinnomon with an egg or 2.

    Nutrion Per Cake (no crust)

    Fat: 42gr
    Carbs: 10gr
    Sugar: 8gr
    Protein: 58gr

    Thuoghts, comments, concerns?????

    Broccoli and cauliflower are good choices for the AD. Fiber doesn't count against your daily carb intake because it has no impact on blood sugar and you should be getting ~30g per day on this diet to keep you regular and support healthy cholesterol levels. I eat loads of spinach because it only has 1g of carb that counts against you for every 3.5 cups.
