(Unsponsored) X-Factor, Drive/RPM
After a nice hiatus from supplements since my very successful Pslin/Hyperdrol/Activate log, I'm finally going to use these products that have been burning a hole in my carbinet for months. ALSO: I'm adding in ALCAR.
For the next 50 days, I'm going to be following standard dosing protocol for these products, and making adjustments in my diet to get the best gains possible (avoiding my beloved fish oil, no antiinflammitories, not too much fish, and no boozeahol).
I'm also going to most likely add either Reset AD or ALCAR to this (suggestions welcome on which). My training will be changed every 2 weeks, alternating between Hypertrophy, Power/growth/ and plyometric circuits. I will be doing some cardio, but not to much, an hopefully abs up the whazoo. The name of the game is recomp and expolsive power.
If you've ever read a log of mine, you know I'll give an honest review. I've tried RPM and Drive in samples, and like it very much, but this is the first time I'll get to do a full run
Alright. Let's give'r

sounds wicked. i just finished using the grip of drive/rpm samples from the la fit expo. amazing. cant wait to try a full run. and after reading a few threads on x factor, i may use this stack. looking forward to this.

the combo is particularly nice. drive + rpm raise your cAMP levels, which works well with the way x-factor works.

It's official, I'm Adding ALCAR to the stack. I've always loved the idea of carnatine and it's dirivatives, plus the fact that it's not suppose to be availiable in Canada makes it all the sexier. (I'd like to add it to the title of the thread, but I can't figure out how, reps for anyone that can help).
I tried to workout yesterday. I'm going through a quite a bit right now, and I thought the gym would help. I took my 3 RPMs and did 2 warm ups on the bench and realized I couldn't do it. I expected that the RPM would push me through anything, but I was wrong. I still believe in this supp, it's just not magical. I feel better today, and I'm sure to have a good experience in the gym.
I'm following dosing protocol laid out by the products, but something is bothering me; Forskolin is suppose to work best when taken with fats. WHy am I suppose to take drive on an empty stomach?

hmm who said forskolin works better with fats? thats the first i've heard that.
02-20-2008, 10:10 AM
I had always heard that, and Drive was the first time I'd ever heard it being taken with out it. Then, recently on MM, Liorrah (I might have spelled that wrong), who is like the forskolin guy, restated it. I'll see if I can get you a link.

interesting. I guess i'll have to look for some science on it.

So far this run of RPM has been less than stellar. As I've said, I had good experiences in the past, but so far, both times I've taken it, I haven't really wanted to workout. I did manage to do my chest yesterday, and my strength was good, but I didn't want to keep going. I didn't do cardio, and I didn't even stretch. Not stretching is very much not like me.
I've been taking in a lot of caffeine lately, so maybe that has something to do with it. I'm going to try and ween myself off of coffee over the next few days.

I've started cutting back my caffeine intake, but it will take a little while. My workout yesterday was slightly better, but still didn't want to be there. That being said, I felt strong, did dead lifts, and did some cardio at the end, although I didn't do abs. I'm up to 3 drive, twice a day and so far I've had no GI issues what so ever.
I'd really like to not take RPM on my non training days. Partially because I'm trying to phase out caffeine, but also because it's too much when I'm not going to the gym and I want the bottle to last the duration of the log. I think I'm going to train 5 (sometimes 4) days a week in one form or another and take 2 (3) days off RPM. SARM be damned!!!

Subbed. Good luck! I will be starting my X Factor log probably in 3 weeks or so, depending on when MN get's more stock in and then ships it up here to Canada. My RPM samples were amazing, it should be awesome for you in the gym.

I need to dose my ALCAR consistently. I just hate the freakin taste

Today was shoulder day, my favorite. I have cut back to one coffee and a green tea. I took my pills and once again didn't feel like working out per se. I did, however, get in a pretty good workout. The strength was good and I did all my sets, abs and cardio, so I can't complain. Still, I feel like I'm missing that urge to destroy the gym I associated with RPM.
On a side note, my diet has been better than it ever has. That is going to skew my results I think. I'm glad it is not a sponsored log for that reason.

I had an awesome workout today. It's what I've been waiting for since I started this stack. There were two contributing factors. First, it was arm day, which I love. Second, I took some BCAAs and taurine before my workout. I usually always do this, but I haven't in a while. It really turned the workout around and I destroyed the gym. It speaks volumes as to the potency of those aminos. I believe I will continue to use them.
02-26-2008, 03:03 PM
I took taurine along with the drive/RPM, but I had no BCAAs. It wasn't a great workout in that it didn't have the "destroy the gym" attitude, but I nonetheless plowed through my it. I'm finding that it is like that this time around. I was doing legs today, and I decided to start with heavy leg presses first. I convinced myself I wasn't going to do my squats after, but then I did them any way. I also got through my abs. I would have done cardio, but I had to go to work.
So far, the only change in my body is my gut is somehow bigger. I don't know what the hell is going on here. I have been incredibley vigilant about my diet, but I think, perhaps, my fat intake is too high (too many almonds). I'm going to tinker a bit with it. I just hope it's not age suddenly catching up with my thirty something ass.
