Great start! you know I'm in! You should see the product very soon!
First off, a quick thats to Matt from Millenium Sports Techonologies for sending this up here to Canada so I can give you guys my feedback on this. This will be a 40-day run of the new and improved Ragnarok Crushing Punch Flavour. I've logged similar pre-WO suppls, Controlled Lab's White Flood and Axis' in the past, and I've used various other pre-WO samples like and among others that I will use as a basis for comparison.
Height: 6`0 (minus a hair)
Weight: 155 at 6%ish bf
Current Phase:Lean Bulk
Background: I started weight training for fun starting at 14, and did competitive rugby and soccer during high school. In my freshman year at university things went downhill because I was forced to go on a mealplan with terrible options that caused a lot of weight loss. After finishing my year and getting off the meal plan I`ve been lean bulking and mass cooking. It took me over 2 months to figure my personal nutritional requirements along with alot of online reading and questions, and I still am constantly tweaking and experimenting. After this phase I started lean bulking, to my current 6.5% bf. I`ve had the chance along the way to log a few products, and started a few more bulk products at the end of 2007 including , , Green Tea and Powerful.

I really find the porridge 1.5hours before working out gives me the energy to make it through the workout. If I have to workout within 1hour of my breakfast, I skip my post-WO shake and have a solid meal with almost no fats because I find my breakfast is still mid-digestion giving me the required energy.
In general my diet follows the guidelines suggested by Dr. John Berardi, with carbs and fats being separated, and my carbs meals are earlier in the day. I almost always train in the morning, or by noon at the latest.

iForce INTIMIDATE Log/Review
I'm officially checking IN!
Love that title
NSCA - CSCS
I WAS GONNA USE THAT!!(title)
good luck with this!
I tried the ROK sample in the summer and I don't remember getting buzzed off it very well, but like I've said I heard great things and so I'm giving it another go. I've been off stims since mid-November so initially I might not need the full serving but I tend to build a tolerance to caffeine reasonable quickly. I can't wait to taste this though
Ok! Quick update; I got it on Friday and have been on it for 4 days now. I'm waiting one more day before posting my inital workouts so that I have an idea of what I'm experiencing and so that all my results should be cohesive. Expect a large update tomorrow night guys, but can I say Wow this stuff tastes goood! Who does your flavouring ?
Got any cramps yet b itch?!
i could drink the blue raz caffeine free as a regular drink if it wasn't so expensive
subbing late as always.
Product Review for the New Crushing Punch Flavour:
Taste: 8.5/10 I was expecting a really fruity fruit-punch flavour, but it had a almost creamy sub-flavour that sort of reminded me of cotton candy slightly. I would prefer a slightly stronger fruit flavour on it's own (Axis Lab's SMASH does this perfectly) or perhaps more of a creamy-cherry flavour. It is quite enjoyable, better than the Lemonade Flavour of White Flood but it isn't a 9 or 10 for me. I'm trying to think of different ways to describe it, but the closest is a fruity creamy mousse sorta deal.
Mixability: 9/10 The stuff like many pre-WO powders just fizzles into the water and disappears! I had a tiny bit of residue at the bottom when i added 400mL to it, but it was fine with 500 mL. Just gave it a few quick shakes, and it settled after .
The energy/performance aspect will be explored in detail in the next 50 posts.
DAY 1- Cardio
- Strength - NA
- Focus - Increased - 1st day gave me a psychological boost
- Endurance Regular
- Aggression Nothing noted
- Overall Energy The caffeine + endorphins left me quite boosted
- Other None
So today is a day 6 on my cycle which is cardio, so I took the rag 30 mins before my cardio and did the elliptical for 45 minutes. I clipped along quite well and made myself stop after 45 mins because it starts getting catabolic around 40mins from what I've read, but I had a great deal of energy. Cardio always leaves me pumped up afterwards so there wasn't much of a change, although the Rag definitely tasted good, I wanted a second serving to sip on during my cardio!
