Over on bb.com, I've been logging my 3 day sample of Designer Supplements. I haven't seen too much feedback for this stuff over here on AM, so I figured I'd post up a bit of a review thread for the folks over here. Anyways, I'll just cut and past what I've got over there for now...
Thanks to DS for the Adrenalean samples. I'm quite the stimulant junkie, and am always looking for new ones to play with. I'll start the thread off with some info about myself, and a bit of a supplement "resume".
Personal Background/Experience: I began training in high school for football and cross country. I was a distance runner, and trained mainly for . Freshman year of college I really began to change my training and adopted more of a powerlifting routine. Currently, my goals have evolved to a more of a constant recomp. I'm more interested in maintaining a good physique and healthy lifestyle than achieving the really heavy lifts.
Education: Currently have a BS in Exercise Science, an MS in nutrition, and am in my 3rd year of medical school.
Diet: My diet is typically right around the 40 carbs/35 protein/25 fat ratio. I tweak it every once and a while depending on how my body responds to the current training . If I'm dieting, I'll usually lower the carbs a bit and increase the protein/fat numbers while lowering total calories within a couple hundred of maintenance.
Cardio around 4-5 days per week, right after resistance training.
Whatever caffeine/stimulant I grab in the morning.
I've got quite a bit of experience with both OTC (supplement) and pharmaceutical stimulants.
Supplement Experience (that I can remember):
Twinlab Ripped Fuel (original)
Cytodyne xenadrine (original)
MT hydroxycut (original)
....and many other old school ECA products
Adipokinetix (new stuff)
AX Stim-x (original and 2.0)
DS Basic Cuts
Betel Nut (natural source of arecoline)
Various other herbal stimulants
...probably more that I'm not thinking of.
