will post pics later maybe, about to start this off- just took 3 cordygen, found the bottle of v02 and took 6 of those (whoops will skip prewo dose today and try a 3/3 split later). Bout to hit about a 4 mile run, 1.5 easy 1 hard 1.5 easy-
knocked back 2 cups coffee, 1 serving stim free rag before
Just got Back- impressions
seemed very short overall
during the hard mile, thought i noticed decreased lactate buildup-
recovery after the hard mile (545 pace) was incredible- I was able to get back to a reasonable pace immediatelyand hammered it back home!!
as for dosing, I'll be doing a fasted run in the morning and training weights in the pm, should I do a 4/2 spplit, or 3/3? millenium reps?
I may still take c5 before longer runs with vo2, worth it?

When i was doing intervals for soccer i found that this helped out a lot, 6 minute mile, 6 minute rest, 6 minute mile, 6 minute rest, 6 minute mile. Or just get as close as possible. i'd say if your second mile time is increased (as in 7 minutes) then make your resting time about 7 minutes. Intervals have been proven to be the most effective form of training for soccer.
Are you in college or looking to play in college somewhere?

Oh nice man. My bro is playin at UNM and he's a sophomore. I quit the soccer stuff after senior year of high school. man do i miss it. But really those intervals are bomb. They got my brosef to run 2 1/2 miles in twelve minutes. The half is obviously what was so great. 14 laps in twelve minutes... that's damn good in my eyes. and that was his freshman year in high school. So give it a try if you want.

lifted last night, didn't notice much from vo2 but sets were mostly power based- maybe a slight increase in endurance on burnout-type sets. will post numbers later

3 mile shakedown run this pm, did 3 c5 and 3 vo2- back hurt, but this seemed so easy it was ridiculous. Vo2 is very effective for cardio, and seems to help with high rep sets and recovering quickly after sets in a giant set
NOTE I have been dosing 3 caps 2x a day, once prewo and once pre-run
05-10-2008, 11:08 PM
also this is my first ever log, if I need more detail or something let me know!
05-11-2008, 12:24 PM
4 caps vo2 before running this morning.
stride workout, 1x400, 2x200 (200m act recovery)2x100(100m act recov) total 1 mile
2 mile cooldown
intensity was great on strides/sprints, lower back started killin me on the cooldown. day after deads, ouch
05-12-2008, 10:06 PM
2 more workouts, done with very minimal rest in a circuit of 4 or 5 movements. I'm really able to keep the strength up with vo2 even on limited rest- percieved exertion seems much lower, and post wo cardio is also noticeably easier. will post details, left book at the gym
05-12-2008, 10:09 PM
morning run tomorrow, might try 6 vo2 ...
05-17-2008, 03:44 PM
samples gone unfortunately, will post a final review later, as well as reviews for the other samples
05-22-2008, 01:14 PM
Let me first say that a 120 cap bottle of vo2 was immediately sent to my house after I finished the sample, priority shipping!
This supplement has a noticeable impact on the type of workouts I do (many super/drop sets, circuit style or antagonistic pairings etc) and on higher rep (iso ) sets. However it really shines during cardio. Recovery during sprints is markedl and noticeabley improved, and I thought I noticed a nice mood boost from the rhodiola on distance/recovery jogs. Unfortunately I was off from soccer during this log, however I can't wait to test out vo2 and soccer. Liked c5, would do unspeakable things for vo2 haha
